100 IMCA Modifieds at Jamestown as Wilson tops record-setting Dakota Classic Tour opener

first_imgSpencer Wilson led all 30 laps to win the opening night Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic IMCA Modified Tour feature, and $2,300, at Jamestown Speedway. (Photo by Byron Fichter)JAMESTOWN, N.D. (July 8) – Spencer Wilson laughed when he was asked if he was ready to consider himself an IMCA Modified special series specialist.The answer was no – not yet, anyway.With a track record 100 Modifieds checked in for opening night, Wilson led all 30 laps of Satur­day’s 28th annual Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Modified Tour main event at Jamestown Speedway. The win paid $2,300.Wilson had raced his way onto the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot in February with a win in the Arizona Modified Tour. The Saturday checkers came on a night when Modified drivers from 17 states and two Canadian provinces converged on Jamestown.“I enjoy going to big shows like this and racing with this level of competition,” said Wilson. “This was a great group of drivers. I knew I could run with them. I just needed to stay smart and not overdrive the car.”Wilson pulled away from 2015 champion Ricky Thornton Jr. and Johnny Scott following a series of restarts. Cody Baumann and Tracy Domagala rounded out the top five.Passing was no problem for 2014 champion Jeff Taylor and defending tour king Hunter Marriott who started 28th and 29th, respectively, and rocketed to ninth and 10th-place finishes.“We’ve been to Jamestown two or three times before and always for the tour,” said Wilson, who got on the road to Minot and had the luxury of sleeping in his own bed before the night two show at his hometown Nodak Speedway. “It’s a little higher on the totem pole now as far as being one of my favorite tracks.”The single-night Modified car count record for the tour is 101, set at last year’s finale at Dacotah Speedway.Three-time and defending IMCA Sunoco Stock Car tour champion Elijah Zevenbergen picked up right were he left off last year, in victory lane.After an early flat tire sidelined contender Chad Sterling, Zevenbergen passed Aaron Olson and then caught Angel Munoz for the lead midway through the 25-lapperBoth Munoz and Olson had shots at Zevenbergen following late-race restarts, but neither could find the way by and deny Zevenbergen the $800 checkers. Munoz, 2014 champion Dalton Flory, who started 19th, and Olson rounded out the top four.A track record 41 Stock Cars ran at Jamestown. Both divisions are in action Sunday at Nodak.

Liverpool confident over Aspas

first_img The Reds have announced a £7.7million transfer had been agreed in principle, subject to the necessary documentation. A report has claimed the Spanish federation (RFEF) has put a hold on the deal because Liverpool negotiated with an agent who was not the player’s official FIFA-licensed representatives. However, Liverpool have been diligently working on the deal for several weeks and Press Association Sport understands they are not concerned by claims it will be halted by the authorities. Press Association Liverpool are adamant their deal to sign Celta Vigo forward Iago Aspas will go through despite claims it has been blocked by the Spanish Football Federation because of a paperwork wrangle.center_img The Reds’ hierarchy are “perfectly relaxed” about their role in the transfer as they believe it is an issue for the player and his various representatives to sort out and insist there is no suggestion of impropriety on their part. Suggestions Celta are furious about the way the deal has been handled are not supported by their announcement of the deal. “The club would like to express their sincere thanks to the player for his unparalleled commitment and dedication and courage with which he defended the blue shirt from his childhood as Iago joined Celta when he was eight years old,” said a statement on celtavigo.net. “His performance and contributions have been extraordinary and Iago is already part of the history of this club, an entity he carries in his heart from a very young age. “The club wishes him great success in his new career in the Premier League.” last_img read more

Brunt faces race against time

first_img And he could miss out again at The Hawthorns after revealing he is still being troubled by the injury. “I’m not sure if I’ll be fit, I’ve been doing bits and pieces this week but it’ll be touch and go,” said the Northern Ireland midfielder. “We have a few days to work on it but with the type of injury it is I will need to make 100 per cent sure whether I’m fit or not. “I’ll take advice from the medical staff but it’s a game I’m desperate to play in. It’s a game I’ve always enjoyed and one you look forward to. “It’s just a small strain but it depends how I react to the rehab. I felt it go straight away in the game so I knew I had to come off. “I did the right thing but I was disappointed to come off as, as soon as I stepped off the pitch, West Ham scored the second goal.” A derby defeat could see Albion drop into the relegation zone to add more pressure on under-fire boss Alan Irvine. They sit just a point above the bottom three, having won just one of their last 10 games in all competitions, and Brunt knows they must improve. Press Association West Brom skipper Chris Brunt is in a race against time to face Aston Villa after admitting he is “touch and go” for the crunch derby. The captain has been sidelined for a week with a hamstring injury and could miss the clash on Saturday. Brunt limped out of their 2-1 defeat to West Ham last week and missed the Baggies’ goalless draw at Hull at the weekend. “Things haven’t been going our way at the minute,” said the 29-year-old. “The lads stopped the rot on Saturday and the clean sheet is always a bonus in the form we’ve been in – we’ve been conceding a lot of goals. “So to get a clean sheet was great and we need to add that little bit more going forward now and hopefully try to build on it. “I’m sure the gaffer and the lads have been doing as much work as they can. We need to go and win the game, especially at home where we haven’t been playing well. “Three points is a big target for us this week. “It’s a very important one and we need to get some points on the board, especially at home.” last_img read more

UW looking to end season on high note

first_imgHaving now dropped eleven of its last twelve matches, the Wisconsin women’s tennis team will take to the road in search of a dignified finish to a disappointing season, this weekend. Saturday the Badgers will venture to West Lafayette, Ind., for a dual meet with Purdue before traveling west to Urbana, Ill., to take on the Fighting Illini Sunday.”I think that Purdue and Illinois will be really good. I’m excited for it,” sophomore Chelsea Nusslock said. “Everyone has improved so much… if we compete hard, I think we have enough talent.”In Purdue, the Badgers find an opponent that has won four of its last six matches, including a 5-2 victory over a Michigan State squad that handled Wisconsin by the same score just two weeks prior.Conversely, the Illini have hit a skid of late, posting disappointing results throughout the spring frame.”I think Illinois — they’re having an off-season… the chance is there,” said team ace Caitlin Burke.”I think we have a great opportunity,” added sophomore Morgan Tuttle. “Illinois has an injured player and Purdue lost their number one player.” The Badgers, however, may be forced to cope without Burke this weekend, as the junior standout continues to fight a rib injury sustained during play against Notre Dame February 26.”Right now, I’m going toward [not playing] — I just started practicing,” Burke said. “It still hurts on my backhand, so I’m a little iffy there.”Meanwhile, Tuttle looks to extend to four a team-leading win streak that dates back to April 2. Last weekend, Tuttle — who transferred to UW from Iowa this year — claimed the Badgers’ sole victory over the Hawkeyes in a match replete with emotional impact.”It was amazing,” Tuttle said of offing her Hawkeye opponent 6-0, 6-0. “It definitely gives me a lot more confidence, just knowing that match is out of the way.”This weekend’s road trip will mark the final regular season venture outside of Madison for a Badger squad that has become accustomed to living out of hotel rooms this spring. Only two conference opponents have played on Wisconsin’s home courts this season, though Ohio State is slated to make the trip next week.”I traveled all throughout juniors… I’m used to it,” Nusslock said. She summarized the experience as “managing our time well on the bus, getting our studying done, [and] having some good meals.”last_img read more

Stiver turns in career performances in weekend contests against ranked teams

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ It would have made sense if Lindsey Conrad and Leann Stiver took some time to adjust. The two players had not traveled with the Syracuse field hockey team for the past two weeks, missing out on three games and valuable minutes of playing time because of what head coach Ange Bradley termed as an ‘internal team matter.’ But when Bradley called their numbers this past weekend, both players delivered. ‘I’m proud of them,’ Bradley said. ‘They did what they needed to do. They stepped up and were able to help a team get a job done. They did their jobs, they did their role and they helped us get a win.’ Stiver, a sophomore goalkeeper, started both games in net for the Orange this weekend, with Conrad, a senior forward, providing some much needed energy off the bench. Stiver turned in perhaps the best performance of her career, shutting out No. 4 Connecticut 1-0 in double overtime on Saturday, clinching a regular-season Big East title in the process.  On Sunday, the team followed suit with a 3-2 victory against No. 14 Boston College. Bradley said Stiver didn’t know she would be playing this weekend until the morning of the UConn game, and both players earned the chance to play this weekend because of what they did in the week of preparation leading up to the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘They had a good week of practice,’ Bradley said after the victory of Boston College. ‘Leann stepped up big yesterday. … Lindsey coming off the bench causes a lot of problems for teams, because she has the ability to be a game changer.’ The two players had combined for 21 starts in the first 11 games — Conrad came off the bench against Rutgers — and were viewed as cornerstones of the Orange’s squad. Both players were a part of a group of four players who didn’t travel with the squad two weeks ago to a match against Albany. Bradley declined to comment on the reason the players did not travel with the team two weeks ago, classifying the situation as an ‘internal team manner’ throughout. Of the two other starters who were involved, senior back Maggie Befort was with the team last week and senior forward Shelby Schraden has yet to see playing time again. Conrad did not regain her starting position this weekend and did not register a point in either of the Orange’s games, but she was still able to make her presence felt. Against the Huskies, she was brought off the bench after 11 minutes. And within three minutes, she had already created two separate scoring chances in the Connecticut zone. The two-time All-American was also part of the seven-player unit that started the overtime session against the Huskies, and she played a majority in both the overtime periods. With seven minutes left in the first overtime, she worked through the defense at the top of the penalty circle and blasted a shot off the far-left post, nearly ending the game. Despite her lack of a point, Conrad said she was happy to be back on the field. ‘It’s nice to be back with the team and just playing, having fun again and playing all together,’ Conrad said. ‘This was an awesome game to come back to.’ Like Conrad, Stiver had her best ready for the Huskies. Stiver made numerous diving saves, including two major stops at the end of the first overtime when the team was down a player after a yellow card. The 11-save performance was a career best for Stiver and was the first time an SU goalkeeper had registered that many saves since 2007, when Heather Hess did in a 3-1 win over American. Stiver said there was nothing different about playing this week as compared to games past, and she wasn’t made aware that she would be starting either game up until pregame warm-ups right before the game. ‘There was a little bit of an adjustment,’ Stiver said. ‘But we had been practicing throughout the whole time. So we were just getting back to it through practice.’ And with two of her starters from the beginning of the year back in the lineup and her team coming off perhaps its best weekend of the season in clinching at least a share of the Big East title, Bradley couldn’t help but be satisfied. Said Bradley: ‘We’re a team.’ rwmarfur@syr.educenter_img Published on October 24, 2010 at 12:00 pmlast_img read more

Syracuse’s offense inefficient in 5-1 loss to RMU

first_img Comments As Syracuse lined up to begin a power play in the third period, defenseman Lindsay Eastwood remembered hearing head coach Paul Flanagan scream, “Shots on net!” from the bench. A minute later, Eastwood ripped an ankle-high slap shot from the blue line for Syracuse’s only goal.Flanagan begged his team to shoot when they got open chances. Syracuse was “holding back” in the attacking zone, Eastwood said. The Orange often carried the puck just a second too long or made one too many passes in search for the perfect shot instead of testing Robert Morris’s goalie.A night after its first home win of the season, Syracuse’s (5-17-1, 5-5-0 College Hockey America) inability to generate scoring chances cost them Saturday’s 5-1 loss to the RMU Colonials (9-11-4, 7-2-1) at Tennity Ice Pavilion.“We’re forcing it,” Flanagan said. “So we just got to do things quicker, a little more instinctively.”Throughout the game, especially on the power play, Syracuse would control the puck in the attacking zone, swing passes around the perimeter but opt against launching shots. On one power play in the second period, the Orange held the puck for nearly two minutes, but only registered two shots on net. Syracuse scored on one of ts five power play opportunities.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We’re look, look, look, and then we force a pass to someone,” Flanagan said. “Maybe she was open, but a second-and-a-half later, she wasn’t.”Syracuse’s best chances came at the start of the game, which included junior Kelli Rowswell’s steal in the neutral zone and breakaway shot hitting the crossbar. Syracuse stuck to its game plan by sending pucks deep into the attacking zone and putting pressure on RMU by blasting shots from the perimeter, Flanagan said.Later in the period, SU held the puck for roughly 1:30 of a power play, but couldn’t find any shooting angles. An Emma Polaski hooking penalty turned the power play into a four-on-four, which the Colonials capitalized on. After that, RMU scored two more unanswered goals before Eastwood’s slap shot.Compared to last night’s 3-2 overtime win over the Colonials, SU generated less “traffic” in front of the net, and was softer in going to the net during rushes, captain Allie Munroe said.“We were thinking too much,” Munroe said. “(We) were passive, and we just couldn’t find that lane. I think we underestimate ourselves with our shots, and what was open and what’s not.”In total, the Orange registered 23 shots on goal, down from their season-average of 27.5. No Syracuse player had more than three shots on net. Polaski, who leads the team in scoring, recorded one shot and spent 14 minutes in the penalty box for hooking, roughing and misconduct penalties.SU will need to regain its offensive assertiveness and “make better choices” next Friday as CHA play continues against Penn State, Munroe said.
