Theys tames IMCA Modified field at 141

first_imgBy Greg Aregoni FRANCIS CREEK, Wis. (May 31) – Brad Theys tamed the 29-car IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modi­fied field Saturday at 141 Speedway. Russ Reinwald started on the pole and looked to contend for a trip to the winner’s circle before lap eight mechanical woes ended his chances. Mark Joski inherited the lead with Theys and Kyle Kudick in tow. A three-wide battle on lap 11 proved the game changer. Theys powered by the duo on the bottom and set sail. A final caution was all that slowed Theys in his dash to the checkered flag. He jetted away from the field over the final five laps to pick up his first IMCA win of the season. Mike Mullen charged through the field and passed Kudick late in the race for the runner-up posi­tion. R.M. VanPay and Jared Siefert rounded out the top five.Troy Muench also picked up his first win of the season, in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars. Brian Bruechert was also a first-time winner in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods.last_img read more

Moyes wants Welbeck to stay

first_img When asked about Welbeck’s future following United’s 2-0 defeat at Everton, Moyes said: “Danny Welbeck is really important to me and I really value him. “There have been lots of stories. I can only tell you Danny Welbeck is really important to me and really important to Manchester United.” Welbeck, an academy graduate born in Manchester, came off the bench after 75 minutes at Goodison Park, but could not find the net as United stumbled to their latest defeat of a wretched season. David Moyes insists Danny Welbeck has an important role to play at Manchester United despite speculation the striker wants to leave Old Trafford. Press Associationcenter_img Reports suggest Welbeck has grown tired of a lack of first-team football under Moyes and wants to leave Old Trafford. Welbeck has scored 10 times in 32 United appearances this season, but he apparently has become frustrated at playing out on the wing. last_img read more

“Perfect goal” gives MDI girls’ soccer team late win over EHS

Spotting her teammate, Daisy Granholm, 30 yards away, Weir put her right boot to the ball and sent it flying toward the middle of the 6-yard box.Had Weir’s kick been even 3-4 inches higher, it would’ve soared over Granholm’s head; had it been 6 inches lower, Ellsworth goalkeeper Kayla Duhaime would’ve gathered the ball with ease. Instead, it flew squarely onto Granholm’s forehead, producing a wide-open header to break open a game that seemed destined for a scoreless draw.Weir and Granholm’s connection with 3 minutes, 44 seconds left to play Thursday gave MDI a 1-0 win over Ellsworth at Del Luce Stadium. The goal stretched the Trojans’ winning streak to nine games with the regular season reaching the home stretch and playoff time approaching.Ellsworth and MDI players chase after the ball during the first half of a high school girls’ soccer game Oct. 10 at Del Luce Stadium.

It was two awesome players making an awesome play.”Ellsworth got the first major scoring opportunity when Sara Shea was fouled in the penalty area inside two minutes, but the game remained scoreless as Addi Laslie’s penalty kick went inches wide of the left post. Laslie made amends at the other end of the pitch moments later, though, as she snuffed out a promising MDI attack that nearly put Granholm in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper.Midway through the opening half, Duhaime was forced to leave the game temporarily after suffering a minor injury. Yet she returned after just five minutes to make a pair of key saves, and the Eagles (5-6) were able to withstand MDI’s remaining first-half scoring threats to keep the score level going into the break.MDI (10-1) forced Duhaime into another save in the opening minutes of the second, but the next 20 minutes belonged to Ellsworth as the home team controlled possession in the midfield and threatened offensively through junior Lexi Rossi. Yet the Trojans survived the Eagles’ barrage through solid goalkeeping from Sabine Costello-Sanders and were able to go back on the attack in the final 10-15 minutes.“We started winning more balls and started pushing forward,” Weir said of the Trojans’ resurgence late in the second half. “The time was starting to wind down, and we had to show how much we wanted it.”MDI put the ball in the back of the net with six minutes left to play, but the goal was nullified as the Trojans were called for a handball. Yet the visitors got another opportunity when an Ellsworth clearance behind the goal line set up the deciding corner kick, and neither Weir nor Granholm let that chance go to waste.MDI’s Rachel Leonard and Ellsworth’s Lexi Rossi battle for the ball during the second half of a high school girls’ soccer game Oct. 10 at Del Luce Stadium.

ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLThe game-winner marked the 35th goal of the year for Granholm and the 16th assist of the year for Weir. The two have formed one of Class B North’s deadliest attacking tandems this season with every one of Weir’s assists to date going to Granholm.“I love playing with Daisy,” Weir said. “She’s been such a difference maker for us this year. She’s a great player and a great captain for our team.”The 77th-minute goal marked the latest opening score for MDI all season. Ellsworth’s use of Laslie and Sawyer as part of a back three instead of as attackers gave the Eagles the speed needed to mark Granholm, who was nearly held scoreless for the first time this year.“Those girls are great soccer players,” Dow said. “They have a lot of speed, and with the knowledge of the game they have, they can play back there and do very well. They did a great job of marking Daisy.”The game was Senior Night for Ellsworth’s Silvana Diaz, Marissa Havey, Alicia Kelly, Audrey Ward and Emma Whitney. The 10th-place Eagles will play on the road against Maine Central Institute (6-5) at 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14.MDI will face No. 2 Hermon (10-0) on the road at 1:30 p.m. Monday. That game will have plenty on the line with the Trojans aiming to avenge their only loss thus far and Granholm needing just two goals to set the team’s single-season record, but the primary task, Dow said, is for MDI to play the Hawks tougher than it did Sept. 9.“When we played Hermon down [in Bar Harbor], we didn’t give them our best game,” Dow said. “We had a few moments in that one where we broke down, and they capitalized. Our girls are ready to step up this time and give them a battle.” Biolast_img read more

ZENITH BANK WBL: IGP Queens ‘Arrest’ Sunshine Angels

first_imgSunshine Angels’ Coach, Shola Aluko, who was angry with the quality offered by his wards, however said that hope was not lost yet as Akure team can still bounce back if they are able to beat Benue Princess today.Sunshine Angels  went into the fourth quarter trailing by one point (27-28), but the Angels inability to register a point in the first four minutes of the quarter contributed to the loss, which has adversely affected the team’s chance of making it to the final Eight in Lagos.Aluko is sure that the situation is redeemable if his team can beat Benue Princess with more than seven points in today’s encounter. He also blamed the defeat on fatigue and anxiety on the part of his players.“I will actually blame fatigue and anxiety for this latest defeat to IGP Queens. The girls struggled toward the end of the game and that accounted for missing many scoring chances. I think they also lost their cool instead of staying focused. We needed to beat the IGP Queens, but unfortunately they missed the opportunity. And we have to go back to the drawing board and perfect a strategy to beat Benue princess today.”“We still have chance to correct our mistakes, beat Benue Princess and move a step closer to qualifying for the Final Eight. If we can win today’s game with more than seven points, we will do our aspiration a lot of good. We are in a tight corner, but we will fight our way out,” the coach added. 1GP Queens yesterday defeated Sunshine Angels of Akure 48-39 in the ongoing second phase of the Zenith Bank Women Basketball League game in Asaba.In another game, Kano-based Adolescent Health and Information Programme, (AHIP) Basketball Club defeated Nigeria Immigration 57-39.

Crucial tests still to come for USC

first_imgThis week’s column was supposed to be about the USC rugby team, but the Trojans found a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory for the second time in four weeks on Saturday. My colleague and fellow Daily Trojan sports columnist Jake Davidson outlined the reasons for the loss, calling the Trojans “just an average seven or eight-win football team.” Statistically, he’s probably right.The Trojans have five wins right now and four games left. But it’s time to abandon that College Football Playoff pipe dream and focus on what’s important for USC: beating UCLA and Notre Dame. There’s a trend of entitlement and fading arrogance that surrounds this USC football program and fan base, and it’s completely unwarranted.  The last time USC won a national title was ten years ago. Provided, that’s a short time compared to ASU (they’ve never claimed a national title) or UCLA (60 years — no one’s holding their breath, Bruins).But it’s not the absence of National Championships and Rose Bowls that’s going to get a coach fired (or an interim coach replaced). Coaches don’t get fired after losing on a last-second Hail Mary or failing to shore up defensive inefficacies in the fourth quarter. Phone calls are made when the Trojans go out to repossess that Victory Bell after a one-season loan and come up short. Say what you like about USC head coach Steve Sarkisian’s inability to maintain a high level of morale on the sidelines, or his patently awful play calling down the stretch. Complain all you want about defensive coordinator Justin Wilcox’s tenuous bend-but-don’t break approach (I did).The only thing we can’t complain about this season is USC’s players. They’ve been putting in an insane amount of effort on every play, playing at high intensity for three-and-a-half quarters and taking whatever the coaches are giving them. Consider that there’s very little depth on this team before the USC starters suffer a massive drop-off in production (especially on defense), and a healthy USC team looks very much in the title hunt next season.In spite of their efforts, let’s be honest with ourselves: This is not a College Football Playoff-caliber team. USC might boast the most talented starters in the Pac-12, but the lack of depth pigeonholes Sarkisian’s game plan to the “risk-averse” approach Davidson described in Monday’s column. Which is why I’m proposing that USC needs to focus on the opponent in front of them, and not think about a bowl game, the Playoff, the Pac-12 Title Game or any other “possible scenario.”The Trojans have been beating up on some historically overrated teams in Arizona (which, for some reason, remains ranked No. 14 in the nation despite a loss to the Trojans at home) and Stanford. Now they have two games against an (admittedly still pretty overrated) UCLA squad and a potentially properly rated Notre Dame team.These two games will be the real test of whether or not this season was a failure. This season is salvageable because frankly anyone who said they had expectations for this team prior to the season is lying. It’s been a roller coaster ride of a season, but heartbreaking losses in the last seconds shouldn’t shake the Trojan spirit or foist the Trojans’ season into forgettable oblivion. I’d like to think that a school with the motto “Fight On” would have a more resilient fan base than that. When considering first year coaches for USC, we have to account for the installation of a new system and the establishment of expectations. Calling Sarkisian “seven-win Sark” in his first season as a head coach of an entirely new group of players is just stupid. Pete Carroll was 6-6 in his first season at the helm of USC. We gave Lane Kiffin an 8-5 season, and it’s only reasonable that Sarkisian be given a similar leeway to install his system before we start having expectations. So the way I see it, this season isn’t lost until USC loses to UCLA — and I’m confident that’s not going to happen. Euno Lee is a senior majoring in English literature.

Women’s soccer: Badgers look to capitalize this weekend against Rutgers, Maryland

first_imgThe No. 22 University of Wisconsin women’s soccer team (8–2–1, 2–1–1 Big Ten) heads home this weekend to play Rutgers (6–1–3, 2–0–1 Big Ten) Thursday and Maryland (3–5–3, 1–2 Big Ten) Sunday.The games will come after the Badgers split contests on their road trip to Michigan, losing to the University of Michigan (6–4, 2–1 Big Ten) 0–2 and beating Michigan State (5–3–3, 0–2–2 Big Ten) 2–1.Wrestling: A conversation with Chris Bono in his first offseason as head coachSometimes you don’t have to sit down long with someone to tell what they are all about. For the University Read…Offensively Wisconsin struggled in these last two games, getting just seven total shots off against Michigan and Michigan State. The two goals came from substitute Emily Borgmann and defender Payton Wesley. As the Big Ten schedule progresses, look for attackers Dani Rhodes, Lauren Rice and Cameron Murtha to re-engage themselves in the offense.Rutgers will certainly be the most difficult matchup for Wisconsin this weekend. The team is ranked No. 43 nationally in Rating Percentage Index and has historically been a competitive team in the Big Ten.Goalkeeper freshman Meagan McClelland has big shoes to fill, replacing the two time Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year Casey Murphy. So far the Rutgers goalie has performed well by allowing just .83 goals per game with a .71 save percentage.Forward Ali Amirah leads the Scarlet Knights attack with seven goals on the year. Amirah’s looks have been incredibly efficient on the year as .67 percent of her shots are on goal.For Maryland, forward Jarena Harmon leads the squad with five goals on the year while their freshman goalie Rachel Egyed takes over duties allowing .97 goals per game.Volleyball: Badgers to face third ranked opponent of season in MinnesotaWith the Wisconsin Badger volleyball team off to a quick 2-0 start to the Big Ten season, they face a Read…But Wisconsin will counter Maryland and Rutgers strenghts with Rice, their leading scorer with four goals, and the rest of their forwards, Rhodes and Murtha, who have two goals each.You can watch both kickoffs live from the McClimon Complex with the Rutgers game starting at 7 p.m. Thursday and the contest versus Maryland beginning at 1 p.m. Sunday.
