Fake punt helps 49ers beat Chiefs 22-17

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) — Colin Kaepernick threw for 201 yards and a touchdown, Frank Gore ran for 107 yards and the San Francisco 49ers converted a fake punt to beat the Kansas City Chiefs 22-17 on Sunday. The 49ers (3-2) turned to a trick play on fourth-and-1 from their own 29 early in the fourth quarter, giving a direct snap to Craig Dahl for a 3-yard run up the middle. Kaepernick directed the offense down field, and Phil Dawson kicked a 27-yard field goal with 8:42 to play for the go-ahead score.

Dawson also connected from 55, 52, 35 and 30 yards. The 49ers held off former franchise quarterback Alex Smith and the Chiefs (2-3) twice in the closing moments. Smith threw for 175 yards and two touchdowns, but Perrish Cox intercepted his overthrown pass to end any chance Kansas City had to rally.

Kemp’s HR lifts Dodgers over Cards, NLDS tied at 1

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Matt Kemp hit a go-ahead home run leading off the eighth inning, lifting the Los Angeles Dodgers over the St. Louis Cardinals 3-2 Saturday night and evening their NL Division Series at a game apiece. Kemp practically skipped down the first base line, appearing to coax the ball fair as it sailed inside the foul pole and into the lower left field seats while the crowd of 54,599 erupted in cheers. Bubbles percolated into the hot night air from a machine in the dugout that the Dodgers turn on to celebrate homers.

No one looked happier greeting Kemp in the dugout than J.P. Howell, who had served up a tying, two-run homer to Matt Carpenter in the top of the inning after relieving Zack Greinke. Kemp hugged Howell after connecting off Pat Neshek.

Game 3 is Monday night in St. Louis, with John Lackey starting for the Cardinals against Hyun-Jin Ryu.

TERRE HAUTE, Ind. (AP) – Wide receiver Chris O’Leary threw a 38-yard touchdown pass to Gary Owens on a trick play with 2:12 remaining and Indiana State held off Northern Iowa 20-19 in the Missouri Valley Conference opener for both teams Saturday.

The Sycamores (4-1, 1-0) led 14-0 early, but gave up 19 straight points before breaking the drought on Owens’ score. Mike Perish’s pass was intercepted on the two-point try. Sawyer Kollmorgen drove Northern Iowa (2-3, 0-1) down to the Sycamore 36, but Michael Schmadeke’s 53-yard field goal attempt was short. Buck Logan and Perish each had first-quarter rushing touchdowns for Indiana State. Owens had six receptions for 79 yards.

Kollmorgen had a 5-yard touchdown run and Schmadeke kicked four field goals with a long of 48 yards. Schmadeke’s 30-yarder gave Northern Iowa its first lead and a 31-yarder made it 19-14 with 14:48 left.
David Johnson had 127 yards rushing for the Panthers.

Iowa State AD goes on 2 1/2-minute tirade about call

STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) – Iowa State athletic director Jamie Pollard went on a 2 1/2-minute tirade about a call that he believes turned the game in the Cyclones’ 37-20 loss to No. 21 Oklahoma State on Saturday.  With the score tied at 6-all late in the second quarter, the officials ruled Oklahoma State’s Desmond Roland was stopped just short of the goal line as time expired in the first half. The play was reviewed and the call reversed, giving the Cowboys a 13-6 lead.

Pollard said it was the latest in a string of bad calls against the Cyclones in recent years.  He said some Iowa State players acted inappropriately after the call, and he didn’t fault them, saying such calls end “careers for football coaches, ADs and presidents, so something’s got to be done.”

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Ulysses Bryant rushed for 140 yards and two touchdowns, including a 59-yarder late in the fourth quarter, and the Jacksonville defense forced four turnovers to lead the Dolphins to a 29-14 victory over Drake on Saturday. Kade Bell had 259 yards passing and one touchdown for Jacksonville (4-1, 2-0 Pioneer).

Drake (2-3, 1-1) pulled within 22-14 with 8:52 left in the fourth quarter on a Conley Wilkins short TD run, but gave up the long TD run by Bryant with 2:30 left in the game. Drake trailed by just three at halftime, but four turnovers on four consecutive possessions, including three interceptions by quarterback Andy Rice.

Rice finished with 264 yards passing and one touchdown, a 5-yarder to Eric Saubert in the first quarter, to lead Drake. Saubert had four catches for 79 yards. The win was the fourth straight for Jacksonville, which snapped a three game losing skid to Drake.

The score was 6-6 when Roland scored as time expired in the first half. Hill’s kickoff return pushed the Cowboys’ lead to 20-6 in the opening seconds of the third quarter. Sam B. Richardson passed for 200 yards and threw two touchdown passes to E.J. Bibbs. The Cyclones (1-4, 0-3) were held to 322 total yards.

Sculptures of Cy, the ISU mascot, take Ames by…Cylone

Sports

October 4th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

Chicago started the trend a few years ago with a series of cow sculptures while Iowa City had dozens of specially-painted Herky the Hawk figures. Now, Ames is on board with a collection of statues of Cy, the Iowa State University mascot. Makenzie Heddens is co-chair of the Cyclone City project and says the fiberglass statues are on display all over town, based on the kneeling bronze Cy outside the I-S-U Alumni Association office.

“We replicated that position and developed 30 statues, all of which are decorated differently by various artists throughout Ames and the surrounding area,” Heddens says. The Cy sculptures are painted in all sorts of different designs.

There’s Jack Trice, a SuperCy, scenes from around Ames, an exerCyzing Cy and even an Elvis-themed Cy. The sculptures will be on display for the next few months. Heddens says an auction is scheduled for December 5th for those statues which haven’t already been purchased. See all 30 of the sculptures for yourself online at http://cyclonecity.wordpress.com
