Adair-Casey @ Coon Rapids-Bayard Live Tonight on KJAN!

Sports

September 19th, 2014 by Jim Field

We have an 8-Man football game tonight on KJAN as 2-1 Adair-Casey will hit the road to visit 8th ranked Coon Rapids-Bayard. Coon Rapids-Bayard coach John Kesselring helped lead Adair-Casey to a state title as a quarterback when he was a player, but now he has to coach against his alma mater.

Kesselring says he is impressed by the Bombers speed.

Adair-Casey coach Chris Bireline was Kesselring’s high school teammate. Bireline says running back Zach Evans is his main concern when scouting the Crusaders.

Evans has run for 600 yards in the first three games and leads a potent ground attack for 3-0 Coon Rapids-Bayard.

Our pre-game show begins at 6:30 this evening with kick-off set for 7:00. You can hear it live on AM 1220, FM 101.1, online at kjan.com or on your smartphone with the free KJAN app. You can also watch the live video stream of the game on the TV page at kjan.com.

“Who’s Gonna Win?” will get our evening of high school football coverage started at 6:00 tonight.

Atlantic Tries to Make it Three in a Row vs. ADM

Sports

September 19th, 2014 by Jim Field

Coming off a 7-6 win over Glenwood to open district play last week, the Atlantic football team is home to try to extend their winning streak to three games tonight as they host ADM.

The Trojans haven’t been able to muster a lot of offense so far this season, but the defense has come up big in the last two wins. Last week, the Trojans stopped the Rams twice on the one yard line, with one of those stops turning into a 99 yard, 22 play, nine-plus minute drive for the winning touchdown.

After facing three teams that predominantly run the ball, Trojans Head Coach Eric Waldstein says his team will face a 1-2 Tigers club that likes to throw the ball…..a lot!

Last week, ADM lost a 7-6 match-up with Dallas Center-Grimes that saw the Tigers throw four interceptions. Waldstein hopes his Trojan squad can cause the same type of turnover problems.

Kick-off tonight at the Trojan Bowl is set for 7:30.

You can hear more from Coach Waldstein this afternoon at 4:45 on “Trojan Preview.”

Cardinals beat Brewers 3-2 in 13 innings

Sports

September 19th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Tony Cruz singled in the winning run in the 13th inning and the St. Louis Cardinals moved closer to their second straight NL Central title with a 3-2 victory over the Milwaukee Brewers on Thursday night.

The defending National League champions took two of three in a tight series that featured only 12 runs and another game that lasted 12 innings, and lead the division by 2 1/2 games with nine games to go. They begin their final home series of the year Friday night with the first of three against Cincinnati.

Aramis Ramirez and Scooter Gennett had an RBI apiece for the Brewers, who are five games back and 3 1/2 out for the second NL wild card. Jonathan Lucroy’s 45th double tied the major league record for a catcher set by Ivan Rodriguez in 1996 and was his major league-leading 52nd overall.

Cruz singled up the middle with one out for the third hit of the 13th against Jimmy Nelson and Matt Adam scored from second.

Chiefs’ Charles limited with high ankle sprain

Sports

September 19th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Chiefs running back Jamaal Charles showed up for practice Thursday, albeit in a limited capacity, despite a high ankle sprain sustained last Sunday against Denver. Charles did not participate Wednesday and there were fears that one of the game’s dynamic playmakers could miss several weeks. Chiefs coach Andy Reid has not said whether there’s a chance Charles will be available for Sunday’s game in Miami.

Pro Bowl safety Eric Berry, who is also sidelined by a sprained ankle, remained out of practice. Rookie wide receiver De’Anthony Thomas also did not practice after returning Wednesday from a hamstring injury that has caused him to miss the first two games.

Linebacker Tamba Hali was limited in practice. He’s expected to play against the Dolphins.

Wainwright shutout, 19th win as Cards beat Brewers

Sports

September 18th, 2014 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Adam Wainwright posted his 19th win, pitching a shutout Wednesday night as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 2-0 to hold their 2½-game edge in the NL Central. Wainwright worked around seven hits and tied for the major league lead in wins and shutouts.

St. Louis has won four of five and kept its advantage over second-place Pittsburgh. Milwaukee dropped 2 1/2 games behind the Pirates for the second NL wild-card spot. Mike Fiers held the Cardinals hitless until Wainwright singled up the middle with two outs in the sixth. It was Fiers’ first start since beaning Miami’s Giancarlo Stanton last week, ending his season.
