Lightning Strike at PGA Tour Championship Injures Six People

first_imgSix people were injured on Saturday when a bolt of lightning struck a 60-foot pine at the PGA Tour championship in Atlanta, according to police.The third round of the season-ending event had been suspended for about half an hour due to stormy weather, and fans were seeking shelter. The lightning strike hit the top of the tree, which is just off the 16th tee, and shattered the bark to the bottom.Atlanta Police spokesman James H. White III says five men and one female juvenile were injured. All of them were taken to hospitals for treatment, and all were alert, conscious and breathing. The championship includes 30 players who are competing for the FedEx Cup and a $15 million prize.Golfer Justin Thomas, who was enjoying a one-shot lead through five holes when play was suspended, says he and players were eating in the clubhouse when “it felt like the entire clubhouse shook” from the thunder.The PGA Tour canceled play for the remainder of Saturday.last_img read more

Wisconsin defenders on the offensive

first_imgADAM SCHORR/Herald photoAt first glance, this year’s stat sheet for the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey may look a bit confusing.Leading the team in scoring with 12 points is junior Jamie McBain, a defenseman. Right behind him in second and third are blueliners, sophomores Brendan Smith and Ryan McDonagh with nine and eight points, respectively.So where has the production from the forwards been?“Sometimes it makes you a little bit frustrated, like, ‘Come on, forwards,’” Smith joked. “But it’s not even like that because the forwards are actually the ones that are feeding us.”Upon closer inspection of the defensive corps UW head coach Mike Eaves has been blessed with, the numbers begin to make more sense.Among the six Badgers who typically see time on defense, five were drafted in the NHL’s first or second round. McDonagh was drafted the highest of the group, taken 12th overall in the 2007 draft by the Montreal Canadians. Smith was taken just 15 picks later in that same draft by Detroit.Jake Gardiner, a freshman from Minnetonka, Minn., was a first rounder in the 2008 draft, going 17th to the Anaheim Ducks. McBain (Carolina Hurricanes) and Goloubef (Columbus Blue Jackets) were both taken in the second round of their respective drafts.With so much professional potential in one locker room, one might think there would be a lot of boasting among the young defensemen, but Smith said that’s not the case.“Sometimes we joke around about it,” he said. “But everybody’s pretty modest about it, and they don’t really talk about it too much.”With the level of talent Wisconsin has at its disposal defensively, Eaves knew it was just a matter of time before they produced.“Our most talented guys — in terms of natural ability — are there,” Eaves said of his defense.It took a few games for the unit to click, as the Badgers allowed 23 goals in their first four games. Over the past two weekends, however, UW has earned its first three wins of the season — allowing just four combined goals in those three victories, including a shutout Saturday against Michigan Tech.“Coming into the season, we knew we were a very offensively talented group,” McBain said. “As of late, I think we’re just keeping it simple. We’re throwing pucks at the net.”Part of what has contributed to the recent success of the defensemen — and the Badgers along with them — has been their ability to convert on the power play. Saturday against the Huskies, Wisconsin scored five of its six goals with the man advantage. McDonagh notched one of those tallies, and Smith assisted on three of the five power play goals.“The power play was doing really well. … I think that was the main thing,” Smith said. “We’ve got [Blake] Geoffrion in front of that net. He screens the goalie and it’s so hard for a goaltender to see the puck. He got a stick on a few of them.”Geoffrion scored twice in Saturday’s 6-0 victory, but was assisted both times by the duo of Smith and McBain, who recognized the forward’s ability to make plays happen.“Blake’s doing a great job in front,” McBain said. “The one-time was working for us Saturday.”It was McBain and Smith that anchored UW’s top line of defense, and the chemistry between the two was evident: four of Wisconsin’s nine goals on the weekend were a direct result of the duo. Aside from assisting on Geoffrion’s two goals, it was Smith’s pass that set up McBain’s third-period goal Saturday, and they both picked up an assist on John Mitchell’s goal Friday night.“As of late, it’s just kind of a confidence in each other,” McBain said. “We’re learning how to read off one another; we’re learning where each other is at, kind of getting a feel for each other’s game. It’s working out for us. I know when the puck’s in his hands, he’s going to do something special with it. He’s going to be looking for me, too.”Of the freshmen defensemen, none has made a bigger impact early on than Gardiner, who already has six points on the season. Gardiner hasn’t always played on the defensive side of the puck, however. The 2008 Star Tribune Metro Player of the Year switched from forward to defense as a senior in high school — a move he feels has helped him find his way near the top of the scoring leaders.“I’m pretty much an offensive defenseman,” Gardiner said. “I’m trying to take it down a notch and play more solid defense and be more calm once I get more comfortable.”Gardiner’s natural ability with the puck has even impressed the assistant captain McBain.“He’s just got the ability to skate,” McBain said. “He’s so fast and he’s so agile both ways. You don’t see that a lot of times on defense. When he gets that puck, it’s fun to watch him.”The Badgers finished last season with forwards making up the top four scorers — Kyle Turris, Ben Street, Blake Geoffrion and Michael Davies. Yet, here they are 10 games into the 2008-09 season with Geoffrion as the only forward in the top five.But while they’re having success now, the blueliners know the scoring could easily shift.“I think it’s all going to even out,” Smith said. “The forwards are going to jump up there, for sure. I think we’re going to have one, maybe two, in the top five scoring for defense because we’re so talented.”last_img read more

Football bounces back with easy win over Oregon State

first_imgMatt Karatsu | Daily TrojanOn Saturday, No. 14 USC jumped back into the win column after last week’s loss to Washington State, as it defeated Oregon State 38-10 on Saturday at the Coliseum.“A good win for our football team — any Pac-12 win is,” head coach Clay Helton said. “[We’re] 1-0 on the week, 5-1 on the season, and looking at the game without watching the film yet, I really felt like our defense did an amazing job.”While it was an all-around strong performance for the Trojans on both sides of the ball, redshirt sophomore quarterback Sam Darnold was unable to depart from his recent turnover-prone play. In the first quarter, he fumbled the ball on his own 23-yard line in a play eerily similar to last week’s fumble against Washington State.Then with three minutes left in the first half, Darnold threw his ninth interception of the year, failing to see a linebacker float to the ball in coverage. He almost gave up the ball again in the second half, fumbling on his own 21-yard line, but redshirt junior left tackle Toa Lobendahn recovered it on the one-yard line, narrowly avoiding a safety. Darnold had thrown nine interceptions all of last season.“I think honestly, I’m stopping the offense a little bit right now with the way I’m turning the ball over,” Darnold said. “I’ve just got to be better.”Outside of the turnovers, Darnold looked accurate and poised for the most part behind an offensive line reshaped due to injuries. On the game, he threw for 316 yards, completing 23 of 35 passes. However, one Oregon State player was less than impressed with the sophomore quarterback’s game.“Nothing special,” Oregon State cornerback Kyle White said. “He’s a normal Pac-12 quarterback. I didn’t see anything special. He made his throws, made his reads. He fumbled twice. He had one picked off, should’ve been three. He’s OK.”The Trojans started off fast and furious in their return to the Coliseum after two weeks on the road. Their first drive, which featured a balanced attack between run and pass, was punctuated by a 37-yard touchdown strike from Darnold to redshirt freshman wide receiver Tyler Vaughns over the middle. Minutes into the game, Darnold completed his longest pass since Week 3 against Texas. Vaughns finished with five catches for 68 yards and a touchdown.The Trojans’ fast start was not limited to the offensive side of ball. Immediately following the touchdown drive, Oregon State quarterback Darrell Garretson threw an interception to a leaping sophomore cornerback Jack Jones, placing USC deep in enemy territory. Junior running back Ronald Jones II scored on a four-yard option a few plays later, giving his team an early 14-0 advantage. With the touchdown, Jones has scored in 12 consecutive games that he’s played in. While more emphasis was placed on the passing game, Jones still turned in a solid day at the office. He finished with 79 yards, averaging over six yards a carry.“I’ve been practicing with those guys all week,” Jones said about the reshuffled offensive line. “I felt comfortable trusting the guys and the reads.”The home team would exit the first half with a 21-3 lead, with USC’s third touchdown coming on a 16-yard touchdown catch by junior receiver Deontay Burnett early in the second quarter. Celebrating his 20th birthday on Saturday, Burnett scored his team-leading sixth receiving touchdown of the year.The Trojans’ offensive momentum continued into the second half. After Oregon State was forced to punt, the team efficiently drove 91 yards in just over three minutes, scoring a touchdown when Darnold found freshman tight end Josh Falo wide open on a wheel route for 30 yards. It was both Falo’s first career touchdown and first career reception.Freshman placekicker Chase McGrath added a 29-yard field goal with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter on what would be Darnold’s final drive of the game. In backup redshirt freshman quarterback Matt Fink’s first career drive, he burst open for a 51-yard touchdown run on a read option play. After the freshman’s dynamic rush, USC fans were treated to another special moment, as blind redshirt sophomore long snapper Jake Olson once again came onto the field to snap for the extra point. As the crowd roared, Olson delivered a perfect snap.“Credit to old Matty Fink,” Helton said. “Matt did a wonderful job getting in there and making the most of his opportunity. I’d like to thank coach [Gary] Andersen for the class he showed for allowing us to get Jake in to perform his craft.”The Trojan defense turned in a dominant performance on Saturday afternoon. In addition to Jones’ early interception, redshirt sophomore Christian Rector came up with an important fumble recovery in the third quarter, just as the Beavers were making a push for the end zone. The defensive lineman has shown a knack for finding the football; he has two fumble recoveries and two forced fumbles on the season.“This guy [Rector] is becoming a superstar in the last four games,” Helton said. “[He] continues to show up in big ways as we enter the month of October here.”Overall, the defense gave up one touchdown on the afternoon, when Oregon State running back Atavis Pierce ran it in from six yards out in the fourth quarter.“I think we played pretty well,” senior safety and team captain Chris Hawkins said. “The score says we played well, the stats say we played well. I think we can get a lot better. I’m not satisfied, but I think it was a good win for us.”last_img read more

NPFL: Rivers Utd Aiming to Return to Winning Ways against ABS…

first_imgFemi Solaja with agency reportRivers United will face ABS FC in a rescheduled Nigeria Professional Football League (NPFL) game this afternoon in Port Harcourt.United have underwhelmed this season and need a win against the newly-promoted side to get their campaign back on track.ABS FC come into the game on the back of a 0-2 reverse to Abia Warriors in Umuahia last Sunday and will be looking to bounce back with a positive result in Port Harcourt.Technical adviser of ABS, Henry Makinwa knows there is a need to produce a positive response particularly as ABS have yet to win in their last five NPFL matches. “My expectations are that we are going to win; we want to win. “Our ambition is to win all games if it’s possible. “Tomorrow (Thursday) is one of the games and we are going to give our best to win the game,” he told the club’s official website, www.riversunitedfc.com.ng. United are also desperate for a win and Technical Manager, Stanley Eguma, is eager to see his side return to winning ways against plucky opposition.“We are really preparing for the game (against ABS because) at this stage we need good results.“We need to win, especially at home; our position on the log is low and we really need to get these three points to start moving up. “I know ABS is a very strong, young and energetic team; they have a lot of youthful players and can cause an upset on Thursday. “We have to work very hard and not take them for granted. “We have to work hard, put our acts together and secure all three points against ABS; that’s our mission now,” Eguma said.Meanwhile, there is happier news from the infirmary for Rivers United as right back Chigozie Ihunda is nearing a return to action following a long-term injury.Ihunda injured his left knee in United’s 1-0 win over Warri Wolves in an NPFL game decided at the Warri City Stadium on May 8, 2016.The versatile footballer subsequently underwent keyhole and open surgeries in Delhi, India, on December 26, 2016 to repair the damage.He was given a timeline of six months for return to active competition and his recovery is already ahead of schedule, according to Head of the Rivers United FC medical unit, Dr Chukwuemeka Agi.“Ihunda has been undergoing physiotherapy and is already walking without the aid of crutches.“We expect him to be back in action by June this year but it could be earlier depending on how things progress,” he said.

Arsenal 2 – 2 Liverpool

first_imgArsenal rescued a point with a stirring comeback after Liverpool looked like they would recover from their shock FA Cup defeat by Oldham with victory at Emirates Stadium.Luis Suarez and Jordan Henderson took full advantage of an Arsenal defensive display that plumbed the depths to put Brendan Rodgers’s side on course for victory after an hour.But Arsenal showed great resolve to respond swiftly and score twice inside three minutes through Olivier Giroud and Theo Walcott and ensure a thrilling game ended in a draw.Liverpool will be disappointed at conceding that two-goal advantage while Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger may regard a point as a relief, such was the generosity of the defending that presented the visitors with so many opportunities.Defender Martin Skrtel paid the price for Liverpool’s FA Cup loss at League One Oldham as he was dropped in favour of Jamie Carragher.If Carragher’s presence was designed to give Liverpool’s rearguard more security, Arsenal spent the first 45 minutes producing such an utterly chaotic defensive shambles that they were lucky not to be punished more heavily than they were. The tone was set when Liverpool took the lead after five minutes. Bacary Sagna fell over as Suarez missed a flick and when Arsenal failed to clear after Wojciech Szczesny saved from Daniel Sturridge, the Uruguayan scored with the help of a deflection. Liverpool keeper Pepe Reina prevented Arsenal equalising instantly as he blocked a Walcott effort at his near post – and it was not long before Suarez was creating more havoc for Arsenal.He released Sturridge with a magical swerving pass with the outside of his foot but his strike partner chose to take the chance first time and rolled his effort tamely wide.Walcott was Arsenal’s main danger and he forced another excellent diving save from Reina, but any good work the Gunners were doing in attack was being badly undermined by a succession of calamities at the other end.Lukas Podolski cleared Daniel Agger’s header off the line and Henderson landed an effort on the roof of the net with Szczesny stranded out of his ground trying to rescue another desperate situation. Arsenal had suffered a blow when the luckless Kieran Gibbs limped off to be replaced by Andre Santos but there could be no excuse for the standard of defending that had presented Liverpool with so much space and opportunity.There was no escape for Arsenal as Liverpool doubled their lead on the hour. In a moment that encapsulated the game to that point, Henderson battled his way past four home defenders in the area before rolling home a goal his determination deserved.Arsenal, perhaps in desperation, suddenly roused themselves and were level within seven minutes. Giroud powered in a close-range header then Walcott got his reward with a fine angled shot that carried too much pace and power for Reina.As both sides continued to attack, Santi Cazorla flashed a shot across the face of goal and Reina excelled once more as he dived to his right to save from Giroud.Giroud was then unable to complete Arsenal’s recovery and put them ahead as he failed to make firm contact with Podokski’s cross fromsix yards out. Liverpool had a chance of their own in stoppage time when Santos, unsurprisingly, gifted the visitors possession in a dangerous area and it took a sharp stop from Szczesny to deny Suarez and ensure Arsenal’s recovery earned them a point.last_img read more
