Treynor H.S. Football Coach assaulted Friday night

September 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A victory by the Treynor High School Cardinals turned ugly last Friday night, after an angry parent allegedly assaulted Treynor High School football coach Steve Owens. According to the Daily NonPareil, the incident occurred at around 10:15 p.m., when Michael Beard, whose son plays for the team, grabbed Owens by the shirt and shoved him against a desk.

Pottawattamie County Sheriff Jeff Danker told the paper Owens and an assistant coach were sitting in a high school classroom after the Cardinals defeated West Central Valley 27-26 in Treynor. Beard’s son entered the room to discuss his playing time in the game. Danker says Michael Beard entered shortly thereafter and yelling and complaining about his boy’s lack of playing time.

Danker says Michael Beard allegedly grabbed Owens by the shirt at his chest and shoved the football coach into a nearby desk. After the assistant coach yelled at Beard to stop, the man eventually left the room. Medical personnel transported Owens, who has a heart condition, to a Council Bluffs hospital as a precaution. He was treated and later released.

Deputies questioned Beard at his home and arrested him on suspicion of simple assault and disorderly conduct. He served time in jail over the weekend.

Molina’s HR, 4 hits lead Cardinals past Mariners


September 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

ST. LOUIS (AP) — Yadier Molina broke out of a slump with a home run and three singles as Shelby Miller and the St. Louis Cardinals remained tied for first place in the NL Central with a 12-2 win Sunday over the Seattle Mariners. Matt Adams also homered as St. Louis won for the seventh time in nine games and kept pace with Pittsburgh. Both teams are 87-62 with 13 games remaining.

Miller (14-9) gave up one earned run and three hits in five innings. He became the first St. Louis rookie to reach 14 wins in a season since Dick Hughes won 16 in 1967. Molina’s second-inning homer off Erasmo Ramirez (5-2) snapped an 0-for-15 skid. Molina scored three times and raised his batting average to .317.

Chiefs start 2-0 after beating Cowboys 17-16


September 15th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Alex Smith threw for 223 yards and two touchdowns, and the Kansas City Chiefs defense held when it needed to in the fourth quarter for a 17-16 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. Jamaal Charles ran for 55 yards and caught a touchdown pass for the Chiefs, who made new coach Andy Reid a winner in his home debut. The Chiefs also matched their victory total from all of last season by starting 2-0 for just the second time since 2005.

Dwayne Bowe’s touchdown catch in the third quarter and Ryan Succop’s 40-yard field goal early in the fourth gave the Chiefs a 17-13 lead. The Cowboys (1-1) answered with a deep march into Kansas City territory but had to settle for Dan Bailey’s 53-yard field goal with 3:55 left.

The Chiefs offense never gave the Cowboys a chance to mount a winning drive.
