Chiefs wrap up 3-day look at rookies in minicamp

Sports

May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Mitch Morse would have been hard-pressed to find a better opportunity. Start with the fact that the rookie offensive lineman was drafted by the Chiefs, just down the road from where he played in college. Throw in the fact that he was picked well before most experts anticipated — and what that meant for his first contract.

Then consider this: The Chiefs watched their starting center sign with the Oakland Raiders in free agency, leaving a gaping void in the middle of their offensive line. Suddenly, the second-round draft pick could be counted on by a playoff contender.

 

Celebration of life Wednesday for Nebraska soccer assistant

News, Sports

May 19th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — A Celebration of Life service for Nebraska assistant soccer coach Peter Underwood will be held Wednesday at 2 p.m. at the Bob Devaney Sports Center. The 31-year-old Underwood was killed in a car accident Saturday on Interstate 80 in western Iowa, while on a recruiting trip near Atlantic. He was a Nebraska assistant for four years, the last two as a full-time coach. People attending the celebration of life should enter the arena on the north side on the ground level. Parking is free.

Charges are currently pending against 49-year old Paul W. Marshall, of Modale, in connection with the crash. Marshall, who was driving a pickup the wrong way on Interstate 80 when he collided with Underwood’s car, was listed in fair condition Monday, at the Cass County Memorial Hospital, in Atlantic.

Work continues on “new look” Jack Trice Stadium

Sports

May 18th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

When the Iowa State football team takes the field for its season opener against UNI, the Cyclones will feel like they are playing in a brand new stadium. Work continues on a new addition to close the south end zone and when it is completed Jack Trice will become the third largest stadium in the Big 12 Conference.

ISU Coach Paul Rhodes says “The feel that I get every day driving up, is one of just sheer excitement, and it is a drastically changed stadium – and that’s empty. When we get it filled up on Sept. 5th against UNI, the support that will be generated that way as well as the reward to the Cyclone fans for something they’ve been wanting a long time, is finally going to come to fruition.”

Rhoads says work will be completed before the start of the season. He says he’s been promised 61,000 seats will be available for the season opener.

Wong, Lynn star as Cardinals beat Tigers to avoid sweep

Sports

May 18th, 2015 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Kolten Wong hit a tiebreaking home run in the sixth inning and Lance Lynn got his fifth career RBI to back his dominant pitching as the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Detroit Tigers 2-1 on Sunday night to avoid a three-game sweep. Miguel Cabrera’s RBI double in the first was the only damage against Lynn (3-3), who gave a weary bullpen a break before walking the last two batters he faced at the end of his 7 1-3 innings.

Seth Maness’ only pitch got a double-play ball to end the eighth and Trevor Rosenthal finished for his 13th save. Matt Carpenter added two hits and Peter Bourgos tripled and scored on Lynn’s single in the third. The Cardinals improved to a major league-best 25-12 despite having two players thrown at the plate. Alfredo Simon (4-2) gave up two runs in six innings for the Tigers, whose three-game winning streak ended.
