Andale defeats Wellington 47-7

first_imgA- Dagenais 30 run (PAT kick) 20 by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The final score was what people expected: Andale 47 Wellington 7.But Wellington head coach Zane Aguilar pulled out a quote from K-State head coach Bill Snyder’s list of cliches: It is about getting better each and every day.If and/or when Wellington starts its rise back into competitive traditional Crusader football, Andale should serve as a barometer. The Indians currently have the Crusaders number.But when you looked at the way Wellington played this game, it most certainly showed that the Week #4 Crusaders are much better than the Week #1 Crusaders, who lost to Clearwater 41-14. An interesting note: Rose Hill beat Clearwater 16-14 tonight.  Andale played its typical game of smash-mouth football – the same kind that has bloodied Wellington 11 of the past 12 times. In the end the Indians rushed for 316 yards and passed for 82 more for a 398 total. The Crusaders rushed for 82 and passed for 78 for a 160 total.It was Hawaiian night at Wellington’s Sellers Park.Coming into the game people were grimacing. Connor Burnett and Aaron Schoemann, two of Wellington’s most prolific starters, were out due to concussions.Wellington was so desperate they brought up a freshman which Aguilar didn’t play. This game had disaster written all over it from the start.Still the Wellington fans showed up, and were vocal. And while Wellington was most certainly beaten, the Crusaders never embarrassed themselves. Andale worked for every score.Andale always has itself a runner and Tristen Dagenais, the 170 pounder, most certainly is the flavor of the day. He rushed for 70 yards and scored three of Andale’s seven touchdowns.He led Andale to scores of 3, 9, and 30 yards. Andale quarterback Taylor Richter scored on three other touchdowns, and getting a perfect 7-of-7 in the field in passing.Colten Glover attempts to turn the corner against stout Andale defense.Wellington had its moments in the first half. Twice it would cross the 50 yard line. But the Andale defense held firm. The Crusaders also accumulated fewer penalties tonight and didn’t have a false start. The big disaster came in the first half with a poor snap which led punter sophomore Travis Probst to scramble for his life deep in Wellington territory. He was talked at the 5, which led to an easy touchdown.The second half another punt went awry as well.The Crusaders broke up the shutout late in the fourth quarter when Chris Kop scored on a 7-yard touchdown scramble.Wellington appears to come out of this one without too many scrapes and some confidence. The Dukes travel to Collegiate next week in a game that could be closer than previously thought. Collegiate was a 35-7 loser to Mulvane.See the Sumner Newscow photo gallery here.

Booger McFarland shares a pretty awful Christian McCaffrey take — in front of Christian McCaffrey

first_imgBut what’s pretty awkward is the way McFarland and Kellerman totally ignored McCaffrey during the debate, leading to some mega-awkwardness and disrespect aplenty.Who’s the best RB in the NFL?No one on the @FirstTake set held anything back while debating, including Christian McCaffrey himself 🔥 pic.twitter.com/EEP0RjDr0c— ESPN (@espn) January 31, 2020MORE: McCaffrey talks future with Matt Rhule, Joe Brady and Cam NewtonThe segment itself is cringey: two dudes debating is one thing, but talking about NFL running backs in front of McCaffrey — who put together an MVP-type season — as if he isn’t there is just maximum cringeyness. McCaffrey deserves a lot of credit for not blowing up the whole thing, though his clear looks of confusion with a dash of disgust were apparent (like his talent on a football field).For some reason, it seems like McFarland’s opinion on McCaffrey as a runner is very skewed, saying he prefers Ezekiel Elliott to McCaffrey. McFarland made matters worse by demonstrating that he might not understand the way modern NFL offenses function in 2020.”I want to pound the rock, I don’t need my running back to catch the ball,” McFarland said. McCaffrey shot back with a perfectly incredulous response: “Do I not pound the rock?”Obviously, McCaffrey is coming off his strongest season in the NFL and living up to all of the hype as both a runner and a receiver. But McFarland’s staunch preference of Elliott over McCaffrey seems misguided at best.Let’s go to the stats:Rushing yards: McCaffrey, 1,387; Elliott, 1,357Rushing yards per game: McCaffrey, 86.7; Elliott, 84.8Rushing attempts per game: McCaffrey, 17.9; Elliott, 18.8Rushing yards per attempt: McCaffrey, 4.8; Elliott, 4.5So, overall, it’s close — if you’re considering strictly the rushing attack. If nothing else, Christian McCaffrey has certainly cemented himself as one of the most patient running backs in football. Maybe not for his running style, but his ability to keep his cool in interviews.On Friday’s episode of “First Take,” Max Kellerman, flanked by “Monday Night Football” analyst Booger McFarland, discussed McCaffrey’s case as the best running back in football, something totally acceptable to do on an ESPN debate show. When you factor in the passing game, McCaffrey blows Zeke out of the water. McCaffrey had 1,005 receiving yards this season while Elliott, less utilized in the passing game, had just 420 receiving yards in 2020.There’s also the case of the offensive lines. While the Panthers O-line finished the season strong, per Pro Football Focus, Carolina had the 18th-ranked offensive line, while the Cowboys’ unit was No. 4 overall. But, regardless of how you feel about the debate, a little more decorum should be in place for a guest like Run-CMC.last_img read more


Leon Draisaitl’s insane season continues with four-goal game against Nashville

first_imgFOUR. GOAL. NIGHT. Leon Draisaitl is on another level 😱 pic.twitter.com/AYNvJnEUur— Sporting News Canada (@sportingnewsca) March 3, 2020It continues what has been an incredible season for Draisaitl, who leads the NHL in points with 107 after Monday night. His next closest challenger is teammate Connor McDavid, who had five points of his own on Monday (four assists and a goal) to jump up to 94. Draisaitl has now surpassed the 105 point mark he set last season, and he’s well on his way to his first Art Ross Trophy. The German has also managed to force his way into the Rocket Richard Trophy race, with his 43 goals on the season now just four behind Boston’s David Pastrnak in first place. It’s a race that looks like it’ll go down to the wire, with Draisaitl, Pastrnak, Washington’s Alex Ovechkin and Toronto’s Auston Matthews all in contention.  MORE: Matthews keeps pace in Rocket Richard Trophy raceThe performances of Draisaitl and McDavid have helped the Oilers keep pace with the Vegas Golden Knights in first place in the Pacific Division, with Edmonton now just two points behind. According to The Athletic, they have an 88 percent chance to make the playoffs.With their two superstars capable of winning any game, the Oilers have turned into a team that no one is going to want to face in the postseason. Nashville fans are probably pretty sick of Leon Draisaitl by now.The Oilers star had another night to remember against the Predators on Monday with a ridiculous stat line of four goals and an assist in an 8-3 win. It was Draisaitl’s fifth consecutive game against Nashville with at least two goals. That is not a typo.last_img read more


MLB to borrow again from minor leagues with change to doubleheaders

first_imgShortened doubleheaders are a response to baseball’s growing scheduling challenges. Series this week in Miami, Philadelphia, New York and Baltimore were postponed for safety reasons after half the Marlins’ traveling party tested positive for COVID-19 following a weekend trip to Philly. One of the postponed series involves the Blue Jays, whose home park this season will be in Buffalo, N.Y., the home of their Triple-A affiliate, after they were denied permission by the Canadian government to play in Toronto.MLB will be looking to make up all of its postponements this season within a tight scheduling window (teams are scheduled to play 60 games in 66 days), which means doubleheaders will be necessary. Baseball also desires to keep players’ time in stadiums at a minimum: The Chicago-Cleveland twinbill took 6 hours, 48 minutes to complete; it began at 3:41 p.m. ET and ended at 10:29 p.m. with the conclusion of Game 2. That doesn’t include the time the teams spent at Progressive Field preparing for game.Teams and players agreed before Opening Day to two other rule tweaks that have their roots in the minors. Games that are called before they’re official will be resumed at the point of postponement rather than be made up from the beginning, and extra innings will begin with a runner on second base and no one out. MLB has one of its teams playing in a minor league park because of COVID-19. It adopted a pair of minor league rules before the season to aid in scheduling and speed up games amid the coronavirus pandemic. Now something else is being pulled from the bush leagues to get baseball through the next two months.Beginning Saturday, MLB doubleheaders this season will consist of two seven-inning games instead of two nine-inning games, ESPN’s Jeff Passan reported Thursday. Fox Sports’ Ken Rosenthal reported MLB is expected to announce the change Friday. MORE: How coronavirus impacts Marlins’ seasonPassan reported that the MLB Players Association initiated the revision, with executive director Tony Clark suggesting it to MLB deputy commissioner Dan Halem as the first doubleheader of the season — a makeup twinbill between the White Sox and Cleveland — was being played Tuesday. Players and teams were then surveyed about the possibility.last_img read more

More than 9,500 in Iowa file unemployment claims

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa (AP) — More than 9,500 people filed unemployment claims last week in Iowa, and the number of continuing claims still tops 150,000. Iowa Workforce Development reported Thursday that there were 9,516 claims for unemployment insurance in the week ending June 13. That’s a little higher than last week but the number of continuing claims was down by about 3,500. The highest number of new claims came from workers employed in manufacturing. The number of unemployment claims in Iowa and across the country have soared since March, when officials ordered businesses to close or limit their operations in an effort to slow the spread of the coronavirus. Most of those restrictions have been eased in recent weeks.last_img


57 Injured In Fire Aboard Ship At Naval Base San Diego

first_imgSAN DIEGO (AP) — Firefighters were still battling a blaze Monday on a Navy combat ship that injured at least 57 people and sent smoke billowing over San Diego.The fire began Sunday morning aboard the USS Bonhomme Richard, apparently in a vehicle storage area as the ship was in a berth undergoing maintenance, according to Rear Adm. Philip Sobeck.Initially, 17 sailors and four civilians were reported injured but by early Monday the number had grown to 57 and five remained hospitalized for observation, the Navy said.Firefighters attacked the flames inside the ship while firefighting vessels with water cannons directed streams of seawater into the ship and helicopters made water drops.“Sailors across this waterfront are absolutely doing a magnificent job,” Sobeck said at a press conference Sunday.He said there was no ordnance on board, and while the ship holds a million gallons (3.7 million liters) of fuel it was “well below” any heat source.About 160 sailors and officers were on board when an explosion and flames sent up a huge plume of dark smoke from the 840-foot (255-meter) amphibious assault vessel, which has been docked at Naval Base San Diego. That’s far fewer than the thousand typically on the ship when it’s on active duty, said Mike Raney, a spokesman for Naval Surface Force, U.S. Pacific Fleet.All crew members were accounted for, said Admiral Mike Gilday, Chief of Naval Operations.Sobeck, commander of Expeditionary Strike Group 3, said the Navy thinks the fire began somewhere in a lower cargo hold where equipment and vehicles are stored.The fire spread up into office and personnel berths where it was fueled by paper, cloth, rags or other materials in a standard fire, Sobeck said. He said he was not concerned about the air quality or toxicity around the fire.“There was a report of an internal explosion,” Sobeck said. “What we cannot ascertain is exactly what the explosion was caused from.”The admiral suggested that the compartment heated up and over-pressurized.The 23-year-old ship has the capacity to deploy and land helicopters, certain types of short-takeoff airplanes, smaller boats and amphibious vehicles.Because of its age, a fire could be particularly destructive, especially if it reached the engine room and other tight spaces with machinery, said Lawrence B. Brennan, a professor of admiralty and international maritime law at Fordham University in New York.“The heat of a fire of this nature can warp the steel, and that can be a major problem for any ship,” said Brennan. “On an older ship, it’s even more of a problem.”Two other docked ships, USS Fitzgerald and USS Russell, were moved to berths away from the fire, officials said.The ship was commissioned in 1998, and is the third to bear the name Bonhomme Richard. During the Revolutionary War, Capt. John Paul Jones named the first ship after the French translation of the pen name Benjamin Franklin used as the author of “Poor Richard’s Almanac.”last_img read more
