On last Saturday’s sports page we saw “Cross gets best of Sharks in high-scoring contest.”
The score for this high-scoring contest was posted as St. James 53, Cross 40.
Excuse me, I thought Cross got the best of St. James. OK, it was corrected in the story: Cross pulled away in fourth quarter to a 54 - 40 victory. How many points exactly did Cross score, 53 or 54?
I have been reading The Sun News in horror over the years, seeing inexcusable spelling mistakes, poor grammar and mistaken identities on pictures, of which the worst was when the paper posted a woman’s picture on a man’s obituary. In the day of spell check, most of the errors you would think would be eliminated. The reversing of scores and incorrect scores still rely on proofreading.
