Defense dazzles as Wildcats rout Cyclones 41-7

Sports

November 2nd, 2013 by Ric Hanson

MANHATTAN, Kan. (AP) — John Hubert ran for 105 yards and two touchdowns, and Kansas State nearly pitched its first Big 12 shutout in a decade in a 41-7 rout of Iowa State on Saturday. The quarterback combo of Jake Waters and Daniel Sams combined to throw for 221 yards and run for 89 yards as the Wildcats (4-4, 2-3) beat the Cyclones for the sixth straight time.

Iowa State (1-7, 0-5) didn’t score until the Wildcats’ Robert Rose coughed up the ball at his own 10-yard line in the closing minutes, and DeVondrick Nealy took a toss-sweep for a touchdown. That was the only time the Cyclones ran a play in the Wildcats’ red zone.

Grant Rohach threw for 88 yards for the Cyclones in place of Sam Richardson, who left midway through the second quarter. Richardson had been dealing with a lingering ankle injury.

IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — James White ran for 132 yards and a pair of late touchdowns as 22nd-ranked Wisconsin overwhelmed Iowa 28-9 on Saturday for its third straight win. Joel Stave added two touchdown passes for the Badgers (6-2, 4-1 Big Ten), who are bowl eligible for the 12th year in a row. Wisconsin’s Pat Muldoon intercepted Iowa backup C.J. Beathard at the Hawkeyes 25-yard line with 7:43 left, setting up an 11-yard TD run by White.

White added a 2-yard touchdown with 1:35 left for the Badgers, who won despite a season-low 62 yards rushing from Melvin Gordon. Hawkeyes quarterback Jake Rudock had 109 yards passing for the Hawkeyes (5-4, 2-3) before leaving the game in the third quarter with an apparent left leg injury.

Iowa high school football player wanted on weapon, drug charges arrested in Texas

November 1st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A Dunkerton high school football player accused of taking a gun and marijuana with him to a road game in has been arrested in Texas. The investigation of 18-year-old Maryo Lindsey, Jr. started on August 30th when the Dunkerton Raiders played a road game at Riceville. Lindsey was injured in the game and transported to a local hospital for treatment. That’s when someone apparently discovered a handgun and suspected marijuana in his duffel bag and reported it to school officials.

The next morning, Dunkerton Schools Superintendent Jim Stanton called the sheriff’s office and asked authorities to investigate the matter. During their investigation, authorities received information that Lindsey had left Iowa for Texas. Today (Friday) sheriff’s officials received confirmation that Lindsey has been arrested in Texas on multiple Black Hawk County weapons charges – including possession of a Firearm on School Grounds – as well as possession of marijuana.

Lindsey is being held on $200,000 bond in the Dallas County jail in Dallas, Texas. He’s scheduled to appear before a judge in Dallas for an extradition hearing.

St. Louis Cardinals: Season wrap-up

Sports

November 1st, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Clutch hitting deserted the St. Louis Cardinals throughout the postseason. The power arms that got them to the World Series finally gave out, too. For the third straight year there’s satisfaction in the achievement of making a deep October run. They were close to a second title in three years, largely thanks to rookie Michael Wacha, and there’s no reason they can’t keep contending. The way it ended, it felt as if they’d missed by a mile. Going forward, it appears the NL champions have plenty of payroll flexibility. They haven’t said whether they’ll seek a contract extension with free-agent Carlos Beltran, who would like to stay.

NEW YORK (AP) — The World Series television rating on Fox was up 17 percent over last year but was the lowest for a matchup that went at least six games. Boston’s 4-2 Series win over St. Louis averaged an 8.9 rating, 15 share and 14.9 million viewers, Nielsen Media Research said Thursday.

San Francisco’s four-game sweep of Detroit last year averaged a record-low 7.6/12 and was seen by 12.7 million viewers. That was among only three Series that had lower ratings than this year’s, joined by 8.4 ratings for Philadelphia’s five-game win over Tampa Bay in 2008 and San Francisco’s five-game victory over Texas in 2010. Boston’s 6-1 victory in Wednesday night’s clincher received an 11.3/18 and was seen by 19.2 million viewers, baseball’s highest rating since Game 7 of the 2011 World Series.

ST. LOUIS (AP) — The St. Louis Cardinals declined their $9.5 million option for next season on pitcher Jake Westbrook, who was not on their postseason roster after battling elbow and back injuries much of the year. The 36-year-old Westbrook, who was 7-8 with a 4.63 ERA, gets a $1 million buyout.

The sinkerballer appeared in 21 games, all but two of them starts. He was barely used late in the year and got the start in the season finale as a nod to his contributions, working one scoreless inning. Westbrook is 105-103 for his career. He was 36-32 with a 4.27 ERA in three-plus seasons with St. Louis.
