Ricketts kicks off season with Sprint Car checkers on opening night at Kennedale

first_imgKENNEDALE, Texas (Feb. 27-28) – John Ricketts was the winged winner while Jay Bransom made two trips to victory lane on opening night of Kennedale Speedway Park’s Spring Kick-Off.Ricketts used the fast lower line to pass George White for the lead in Saturday’s IMCA EMI Rac­eSaver Sprint Car headliner. Logan Payne eked ahead briefly before Ricketts fought back for the $1,000 victory.Bransom was a perfect 4-for-4 on the night, winning both his heat races and the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified and IMCA Sunoco Stock Car features.The fifth-starting Ricketts worked his way to the front just after midway in the Sprint Car 20-lap­per. Payne chased him to the checkers, followed by Kyle Jones, White and Marcus Thomas.“I couldn’t have asked for any better start to the season than this,” Ricketts said. “I found good bite on the low side and was able to drive past him (White). Lapped traffic also helped.”“There was an issue later going into three when I got held up by another car and Logan got ahead of me,” he added, “but I was able to get back around him by the time we got to the start-finish line.”He’ll chase another national championship as a regular in both the Sprint Series of Texas and the Elite Non-Wing Series, with starts as his schedule permits at KSP, Devil’s Bowl Speedway and RPM Speedway in Crandall.Bransom won from ninth starting in the Modified feature and from 11th in the Stock Car main.His Modified victory came handily ahead of John Gober and Anthony Roth. After working out electri­cal problems that limited him to just a couple practice laps on Friday, he won in his first night out in a new Terminator ride.“I’d won Modified, SportMod and Stock Car features on the same night before,” said Bransom, “but this is the first time in a while that I’ve won two features on the same night.”Modified runner-up was John Gober and Anthony Roth was third. Darryl Campbell was second and Damon Hammond third in the Stock Car main.Completing the list of Saturday winners was Dustin Sprouse in the Scoggin-Dickey Parts Center Southern SportMod feature. Nick Clinkenbeard and Jeffrey Abbey rounded out the top three.Sunday winners were William Gould in the Modifieds, Kirk Martin in the Stocks and Abbey in the Southern SportMods.Chris Bragg was the runner-up and Eric Tomlinson took third in the Modified main. Westin Abbey and Ryan Powers chased Martin across the stripe and Jon White Jr. and Greg Frazer completed the SportMod top three.Feb. 27 Feature ResultsSprint Cars – 1. John Ricketts; 2.

Ighalo: Solskjaer inspired me

first_imgOdion Ighalo has given a fascinating insight into Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s coaching methods, revealing how the Manchester United boss has improved his game after just a few weeks of working together.The Nigerian front-man joined United in January and has already netted four times, averaging a goal every 80 minutes in a red shirt. His manager also had a knack for finding the back of the net, and he’s been passing on a few pearls of wisdom to the 30-year-old.“When I moved to United, I learned a few things from him,” Ighalo said on MUTV Takeover.“During games… there was even a game I scored in, and he said: ‘You should have scored more if you do this or do that.’“I thought about it and I know if I would have done what Ole said, I would have scored more.“He says: ‘You’re a striker, take the chance.’ “So I’ve learnt a lot from him, in terms of positioning and how to do one or two things in a game.“As a striker, it’s good when a striker is coaching you.”“And, as a striker, you benefit even more than the defenders.“He is someone who has scored goals for a long time and has done a lot for United, so it’s good to learn from him.”Solksjaer is also considered a legend in his native Norway. Ighalo is aware of it, having spent a year playing for Oslo outfit Lyn earlier in his career.“He’s a big player [in Norway],” said Ighalo. “Playing for United is amazing – for me, it’s the biggest team in the world.“In your country, they are going to value it, like the way I am in Nigeria.“In Norway, everyone rates him so highly because he did a lot for United, and he’s Norwegian. He was always on TV when I was there.”RelatedPosts Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ EPL: Crystal Palace stun sloppy Man U EPL: Red Devils attack Palace Solksjaer has certainly made a big impression on Ighalo since the attacker joined United in January, and it’s not just because of his expert coaching.“He’s a very calm guy; he’s a good guy,” said the Nigerian star.“Outside of football, he’s a good guy. When everybody is laughing in training, he joins in and he talks to us, but, when it’s the game, you see a serious face. We have to do this, we have to do that – then it’s business time.”Tags: CoachingManchester UnitedOdion IghaloOle Gunnar Solskjaerlast_img read more

Kroos hints at Premier League move

first_img “I’ve heard that people have written that I might go to England. But there’s nothing new from my point of view. “No decision has been made. The situation is that I don’t have any agreement right at the moment [at Bayern]. On the other side there is no agreement in place anywhere,” he said. Bayern hope to convince Kroos to commit his future to the club and their financial director Jan-Christian Dreesen recently suggested they may up their offer – understood to be half of what United striker Wayne Rooney received to extend his stay at Old Trafford – to convince him to remain in Munich. “Toni is a great talent, a good, good player. He’s young. He can be better and better. He can improve,” Bayern manager Pep Guardiola said. “I said to him you have time to become an even better player. I hope he maintains his form this season – and for more seasons at this club.” Reports in Germany however suggest Bayern are watching Borussia Dortmund’s Ilkay Gundogan should Kroos decide to leave the club. Bayern Munich forward Toni Kroos left the door open for a switch to the Barclays Premier League in the summer amid reports Manchester United have expressed interest. Press Associationcenter_img The 24-year-old has a season remaining on his contract with the reigning Champions League title holders, but a renewal has reportedly stalled and a profitable sale may interest Bayern as United plan a massive overhaul at the end of the season. “It’s no secret, the Premier League is a possibility for me,” he said ahead of Bayern’s Champions League second leg with Arsenal at the Allianz Arena. last_img read more

Cisse snatches points at death

first_img The Senegal international, who had earlier been denied three times by Palace keeper Julian Speroni, powered substitute Hatem Ben Arfa’s cross home in the fourth-minute of stoppage time to snatch a 1-0 win with his first goal since January 4. Midfielder Cheick Tiote had rattled the crossbar seconds earlier as Palace looked to have survived, but Cisse ensured the Eagles remain firmly entrenched in the battle for Barclays Premier League survival. For their part, Palace attempted to hit Newcastle on the break with the muscular Cameron Jerome causing all kinds of problems for central defensive pairing Fabricio Coloccini and Mike Williamson. He headed an early Jason Puncheon cross wide and saw a 24th-minute shot blocked by Speroni, but it was midfielder Bolasie who almost blasted the visitors into the lead five minutes before the break when his rising left-footed drive only just cleared the bar. The Eagles returned in much more positive fashion and went close twice within seconds when Puncheon smashed a blistering left-footed effort wide of the far post and Jerome saw another effort blocked by Yanga-Mbiwa. With the game opening up, Palace were posing a more regular threat and Krul was called upon for the first time to block Dikgacoi’s shot as he ran on to Puncheon’s through-ball. However, the Holland international needed the help of the crossbar seconds later when Bolasie sent in a curling shot from the left side of the penalty area. It was then that Carver turned to Ben Arfa in the search for fresh inspiration, although it was Moussa Sissoko who fashioned a 62nd-minute opening for Cisse with a powerful run and cross, only for the striker to miskick. Speroni kept Cisse at bay once again two minutes later with a crucial block after he had pounced on Sissoko’s pass, and the striker powered a 70th-minute header just over from Ben Arfa’s cross. Tiote thumped a long-rage 92nd-minute effort against the bar with Cisse failing to turn home Yanga-Mbiwa’s cross from the rebound, but he made no mistake when Ben Arfa picked out his run at the death. Speroni’s heroics had kept the Eagles in a game of little real quality until that point, and they might even have been ahead themselves with Yannick Bolasie clipping the crossbar seconds after Kagisho Dikgacoi had gone one-on-one with keeper Tim Krul. With Alan Pardew watching the game via video-link from the club’s training ground and owner Mike Ashley making a rare appearance in the stands, it was assistant manager John Carver who took centre-stage once again, and he headed for the dressing room at the break a frustrated man. Newcastle largely dominated the opening 45 minutes as Palace receded in numbers in an attempt to deny the hosts time and space, and the ploy proved effective for much of the first half. Their efforts were aided in no small part by the Magpies’ inability to produce enough final balls of genuine quality to stretch them, despite the best efforts of Vurnon Anita. With Loic Remy once again a spectator because of injury – Newcastle have now won none of the seven games he has missed so far this season – it was left to Cisse and Luuk de Jong to lead the attack, and both might have made meaningful impacts. Cisse was denied by a fine 12th-minute reaction save from Speroni after leaving defender Adrian Mariappa on his backside and thumping in a left-footed shot, with De Jong heading the rebound over. The Senegal international, who started the game with only one league goal to his name this season, looked certain to add to his tally when he met Mapou Yanga-Mbiwa’s inviting 32nd-minute cross with a deft touch, but Speroni was once again equal to the task. Full-back Paul Dummett came as close as anyone to opening the scoring, but his injury-time free-kick whistled inches over the crossbar. Press Association Papiss Cisse headed Newcastle to a last-gasp victory over Crystal Palace as the Magpies left it desperately late at St James’ Park. last_img read more

Paul keen to use Canada T20 league as springboard to revive international career

first_imgKEEMO Paul is one of the Caribbean talented fast-bowling all-rounders around, but has not yet become a regular feature in the regional side. Paul, who, prior to injury during the England Test series recently, was a constant face in the limited overs team and has risen through the ranks to be one of their better ‘death’ bowlers. He was a part of the squad that helped West Indies qualify for the World Cup, but his omission from the current Windies World Cup squad is quite surprising.However, the 21-year-old, who is more famous for his ‘controversial’ mankading a Zimbabwe batsman during 2016 U1-9 World Cup, is not daunted by the omission, but is now focussing his attention to the second edition of six-team Global T20 Canada to be held in Brampton from July 15.Paul, who will play his first year in the league, was drafted by Montreal Tigers, at last Thursday’s draft.“Well I’m excited about the Canada league. It will be my first season and my first time in Canada also so I’m looking forward to it.Also it’s a good tournament to have some stand0out performances and get back in the West Indies team because West Indies is always my priority so I want to say thank you to the Montreal Tigers for giving me this opportunity, and by God’s grace I can repay them once given the opportunity,” Paul told Chronicle Sport Tuesday during an exclusive interview. Paul will be joined by some big names from world cricket, including New Zealand captain Kane Williamson, Andre Russell, Shahid Afridi, Wahab Riaz, Shakib Al Hasan, Sunil Narine, Faf du Plessis among others.He, along with fellow all-rounder Sherfane Rutherford who played with the West Indies B team last year, will turn out for Edmonton Royals. They are two of five players with Guyanese origin who were snapped up at the draft.The others are Canada-based Guyanese Dilon Heyliger, Jeremy Gordon and Mark Montfort.The second season of the Global T20 Canada league is set to begin on July 25, with defending champions Vancouver Knights facing hosts Toronto Nationals in the opening game.The tournament will have 22 matches, including three playoffs, with the final taking place on August 11.Montreal Tigers: George Bailey, Sunil Narine, Thisara Perera, Fawad Ahmed, Isuru Udana, Niroshan Dickwella, Keemo Paul, Muhammed Naveed, Kyle Coetzer, Matthew Ceoss, Nizakat Khan, Steven Taylor, Dilon Heyliger, Nikhil Dutta, Bupinder Singh, Arslam Khan, Yax Patel.last_img read more

Rodgers’ new job comes with price

first_imgAaron Rodgers just can?t catch a break.After three years of waiting in the wings as the heir to theGreen Bay Packers? starting quarterback job held by Brett Favre for 253 regularseason games that spanned 16 years, Rodgers finally got a chance to move intothe role when Favre suddenly retired Tuesday.And it could not have come at a worse time.Because 2007 was the team?s best season since they lost inSuper Bowl XXXII a decade ago, fans are going to be asking a lot more ofRodgers in his first season at the helm than they would have if the team hadlimped through another season.Had Favre, the NFL?s all-time leader in yards, touchdownsand completions, decided to hang up the cleats after his 16th season ? a yearin which Green Bay went just 8-8 ?there would still be plenty of pressure onRodgers. But it wouldn?t be as lofty as the expectations he faces now that theteam is coming off a campaign when they were a single home overtime loss awayfrom reaching the Super Bowl.After the Packers? (very unexpected) 13-3 record lastseason, Rodgers? miscues (and there will be lots of them) are going to be a lotmore noticeable if the team doesn?t play up to the level of a year ago, whicheven with Favre was going to be pretty tough to do.Considering Rodgers? history, though, it is not surprisingthat the three-year veteran is now faced with such a tough situation.Favre?s odd choice of time to retire is just the latest in aseries of unfortunate events that have spanned Rogers? professional careersince he became a member of the league on draft day in 2005.At one point considered a possible No. 1 overall selectionin the days leading up to the draft, Rodgers, who accepted the NFL?s invitationto be present at the draft, was left waiting on camera for hours as team byteam bypassed him. By the time he was finally selected by Green Bay with the 23rdpick, Rodgers was left to hold a clipboard on the Packers? sideline indefinitelywhile wondering when the old man was finally going to retire.In 2006, it looked like fortune had shined on Rodgers whenFavre went down with an injury against the Patriots, opening a chance for himto see some playing time. The backup quarterback quickly hurt his foot,however, and was forced to miss the remainder of the season with the injury.Not that he was going to play much more anyway.Now Rodgers is charged with the task of replacing one of thegreatest quarterbacks in the history of the game.Consider this: Brett Favre?s last pass as a Packer was aninterception in overtime that cost his team not just the game, but a trip tothe Super Bowl. And he?s still the most revered figure in the state ofWisconsin. Think the fans will extend Rogers the same courtesy if he costs thema shot at a title?Brett Favre may have been picked off more than any player inthe history of the game, but Aaron Rodgers can still expect to hear the Lambeaufaithful erupt into a series of boos when he turns the ball over the first time? and probably every subsequent one, too ? in 2008.Rodgers isn?t the first player charged with the task ofreplacing a legend, but there have been few players whose status is on par withFavre?s.Over the course of his career, he could throw for moretouchdowns and yards than Favre, win more championships, score a role of hisown in a romantic comedy, and he still might not be loved as much as thegunslinging kid from Mississippi.Ideally, Favre would have played one more season, the Packerswould not have been as successful as last year, and Rodgers would come in withlow expectations. Instead, Rodgers is coming in to a bad situation that?s evenworse than it was a year ago.There?s just too much to live up to.Out of respect, Rodgers will probably be cheered when hetakes the field for the first time as the team?s starting quarterback. And forthe guy that?s had trouble catching breaks in the league, he should enjoy it.Those first cheers might be the last.?Mike is a sophomore majoring in political science. If youthink Aaron Rodgers is going to live up to Favre?s numbers, or might make asurprise appearance in a sequel to ?There?s Something About Mary,? he can bereached at mackerstein@badgerherald.com.last_img read more

Veterans, freshmen combine to form dangerous doubles duos

first_imgWhen Maddie Kobelt arrived at Syracuse as a freshman, she played doubles with experienced junior Emily Harman and learned what it took to win at the college level.Now a senior, Kobelt and her co-captain Aleah Marrow must do what Harman did for Kobelt, and play doubles with two of the most talented freshmen on the team, Valeria Salazar and Rhiann Newborn.“The captains are huge because they know the playbook,” former Syracuse head coach Luke Jensen said. “They know exactly when the coaches call something or they need to call something. And they can just break the huddle with confidence. And all the freshman has to do is follow it.”Jensen resigned on Wednesday, and Shelley George will be the interim head coach. So far this season, the senior-freshman double pairs have experienced mixed results, with the team of Kobelt and Salazar starting the season 1-1 with one unfinished match, and Marrow and Newborn starting the year 1-1, as well.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhile the results seem mixed on paper, Jensen likes what he has seen from the two newcomers so far, especially when it comes to mental toughness.“You could see it right away, they weren’t afraid of the competition,” Jensen said. “Our away matches have really shown what they’ve added to our (team) dynamic. They’ve just played singles and doubles tough as nails.”It did not come as easy as it may seem for Salazar and Newborn when they first arrived on campus. In their respective hometowns, their parents home-schooled them for most of their lives, so adjusting to a large campus took some time.“It was really tough, extremely tough,” Newborn said. “But I got through it and now I’m just going to keep on focusing on my schoolwork and keep on focusing on practicing and I should be good.”Jensen said he did not make the doubles pairings to group seniors and freshmen. Instead, he said while the captains’ leadership played a role, the basis behind the decision was that the pairings clicked immediately.“It just happens to be that those two teams were extremely explosive and clicked in right away,” Jensen said. “That’s because we have great leadership.”For Newborn and Marrow, part of the reason the two have clicked so quickly can be attributed to the similar style the two play, as they both play an aggressive style of tennis.“She’s a good player,” Marrow said. “She has a lot of power, she’s explosive as well and that kind of helps me out on the court.”For Kobelt and Salazar, the beginning of the season was not the first time the two played together.They played as partners last semester in some tune-up tournaments and connected quickly. “I think Valeria handles herself very well on the court,” Kobelt said. “She’s very mature for her age as far as handling whatever comes our way. We clicked right away.”Learning from Kobelt has helped Salazar adjust to playing college tennis.“She’s a very good doubles player,” Salazar said. “She helps me a lot. She gives me confidence and she is obviously more experienced than I am.” Comments Published on January 30, 2014 at 3:08 am Contact Ryan: rlraigro@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
