McCarney returns to Iowa as North Texas faces Hawkeyes

Sports

September 25th, 2015 by Chris Parks

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) – Kirk Ferentz and Dan McCarney spent nine years working together and eight years coaching on opposite sides of the bitter Iowa-Iowa State rivalry.

McCarney will return to Iowa on Saturday in a strange new role. He’ll be bringing with him North Texas (0-2), the team Ferentz and the Hawkeyes (3-0) plan on using as a tune-up for Big Ten play.

McCarney, who was born in Iowa City, played at Iowa and worked alongside Ferentz under legendary Hawkeyes coach Hayden Fry, will make his first appearance in Kinnick Stadium since 2006 – his last season in charge of the Cyclones.

It’ll be a bittersweet matchup for Ferentz, who first teamed up with McCarney under Fry in 1981.

Peralta, Piscotty power Cardinals over Brewers 7-3

September 25th, 2015 by Chris Parks

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Jhonny Peralta and Stephen Piscotty hit back-to-back homers and combined for seven RBIs to power the St. Louis Cardinals to a 7-3 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night.

St. Louis has a four-game lead over Pittsburgh for the NL Central lead.

The Cardinals trailed 3-0 in the fourth when Peralta hit a three-run homer into the center field bleachers, and Piscotty followed two pitches later with a blast into the left-center seats. The homer by Peralta, St. Louis’ cleanup hitter, was his first since Aug. 1.

Piscotty added a two-run, two-out single off Taylor Jungmann (9-7) in the fifth and a run-scoring single in the seventh to help the Cardinals win their fifth straight.

Michael Wacha (17-6) worked five innings and allowed three runs.

St. Louis, a major league-best 97-56, went 41 games over .500 for the first time.

Atlantic hosts Harlan in Class 3A District 8 play Friday

September 24th, 2015 by Chris Parks

The Atlantic Trojans (1-3, 0-2) return home to the Trojan Bowl Friday night to host the Harlan Cyclones (3-1, 0-1) in a Class 3A District 8 match-up. Atlantic will try to improve on a week 4 loss at ADM that was competitive early but snowballed into a 55-14 loss.  The injury bug has not been kind to Atlantic and Head Coach Eric Waldstein says young players are working hard to fill voids in the lineup.

Atlantic has already lost 2 players to season ending injuries with two other starters questionable for the game this week but Coach Waldstein says morale has stayed good on the team.

Harlan comes in after a tough loss to Dallas Center-Grimes in which a late punt return touchdown was the deciding factor.

You can listen to a lengthy interview with Coach Waldstein at 4:45pm Friday on Trojan Preview on KJAN. Kickoff at the Trojan Bowl is set for 7:00pm.

AHSTW hosts IKM-Manning for important district battle

Sports

September 24th, 2015 by Chris Parks

The AHSTW Vikings play host to the IKM-Manning Wolves on the gridiron Friday night at 7:00pm in Avoca.  Both teams come in with hopes of competing for the Class 1A District 1 crown and a win in this game would go a long way to helping that cause.

Both teams come into the game with just one loss on the season and that was to the Audubon Wheelers for both teams.  The Vikings fell in an opening week contest at Audubon 26-21, while the Wolves lost to the Wheelers at home in week two 31-13.

AHSTW Head Coach Davis Pattee feels like his team has improved since that week one game and values the tough competition that game brought.  The Vikings had eight different players score a touchdown in their week 4 win over OA-BCIG and coach Pattee hopes they can continue to use that balance against the toughness of IKM-Manning.

IKM-Manning Head Coach Tom Casey said it’s a challenge to simulate the Vikings offense during practice but he’s teaching his team to play assignment defense.  Casey has been pleased with the play of both his experienced players like Quarterback Kyle Wagner and also players stepping into new roles.

We’ll bring you coverage of the match-up here on KJAN tonight with Pregame at 6:30pm and Kickoff at 7:00pm.  Join Chris Parks and Seth Christensen for the broadcast on AM1220, FM101.1, online at kjan.com, on the KJAN mobile app, or watch the game on KJANTV online.  Our football night starts with our High School Pick ‘Em show Who’s Gonna Win? at 6:00pm.

September 24th, 2015 by Chris Parks

ST. LOUIS (AP) – Matt Carpenter hit a pair of two-run homers, Lance Lynn pitched six scoreless innings and the St. Louis Cardinals routed the Cincinnati Reds 10-2 Wednesday night.

The win was the fourth straight for the NL Central leaders and it improved their major league-best record to 96-56. Randal Grichuk and Peter Bourjos also homered as the Cardinals hit four for the first time this season.

Matt Holliday returned to the St. Louis lineup for the first time since July 29 and contributed an RBI double.

Both of Carpenter’s homers came off Brandon Finnegan (4-1), who allowed six runs in five innings.

Ex-college basketball player settles lawsuit against accuser

News, Sports

September 23rd, 2015 by Chris Parks

AMES, Iowa (AP) – A former Iowa State basketball player’s lawsuit against a woman who’d accused him of sexual abuse has been settled.

A news release from the Des Moines law firm of Parrish Kruidenier (KREYED’-nur) says Bubu Palo’s lawsuit was “resolved to the mutual satisfaction of both parties” on Tuesday. The firm declined to comment further.

Palo had sued the woman and her mother in May 2014, saying his reputation had been damaged.

In July the Iowa Court of Appeals dismissed an appeal filed by the university, which argued the discipline against Palo was appropriate for his actions toward the female student in 2012. The decision left in place a ruling that threw out the university’s sanctions against Palo and questioned the accuser’s credibility.

Palo had been kicked off the team.
