The Blue Devils scored their lone goal 20 seconds into the third period when Abby Ecker found the back of the net with an assist by Kaytlyn Barthel.

I went to see "Saving Mr. Banks" Sunday afternoon. Mary Poppins is one of my favorite childhood movies, so I had big expectations for this film.

Award-winning Emma Thompson plays PL Travers, the cantankerous author of the children's book series. Tom Hanks masterfully plays Walt Disney, who has been hounding Travers for twenty years to sell the film rights to him.
