Ease with which No. 12 Baylor moves impresses ISU

Sports

October 18th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

WACO, Texas (AP) — Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads is impressed with more than just all the offense for 12th-ranked Baylor. Rhoads says there is just a relative ease with how the Bears “accomplish all these absurd numbers.” The Cyclones will be at Baylor on Saturday night. The Bears have won nine games in a row, one short of matching the 76-year-old school record.

The Bears are the nation’s most productive offense, averaging 715 total yards and 63 points a game. And those are updated numbers after Baylor was held to 451 yards and had to score two touchdowns in the fourth quarter to win 35-25 at Kansas State in the Bears’ first road game last Saturday. That was 241 yards and 34 points below their previous season-low totals.

IndyCar race in Iowa moved to July

Sports

October 17th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

NEWTON, Iowa (AP) — The title sponsor of the IndyCar series race in Iowa says next season’s event will be moved to July and extended by 50 laps. Iowa Corn says the IndyCar race will be held at night on July 12 — a day after a NASCAR Trucks series event at the 0.875-mile oval.

The open-wheel race, traditionally held in late June, will also be 300 laps for the first time since IndyCar started hosting races at Iowa Speedway in 2007. The track is expected to release details of its full 2014 schedule in the near future.

Greinke, Dodgers beat Cardinals 6-4 to extend NLCS

Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Adrian Gonzalez homered twice and Zack Greinke gave the Los Angeles Dodgers the clutch performance they needed in a 6-4 victory over the Cardinals on Wednesday that trimmed St. Louis’ lead to 3-2 in the NL championship series.

Carl Crawford and A.J. Ellis also went deep for the Dodgers, who rediscovered their power stroke just in time to save their season. They held in the ninth, when St. Louis scored twice off closer Kenley Jansen before he struck out pinch-hitter Adron Chambers with two on to end it.

The best-of-seven series shifts back to St. Louis for Game 6 on Friday night, when ace Clayton Kershaw is scheduled to start for the Dodgers against rookie Michael Wacha. When those two squared off in Game 2, the Cardinals won 1-0 on an unearned run.

Inexperienced Northern Iowa preps for season

Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) — One of the Northern Iowa’s hallmarks under basketball coach Ben Jacobson has been veteran leadership. The Panthers won’t have much of that to lean on this season. Three starters and three of the program’s top four scorers have moved on, leaving Jacobson with the least experienced group in his eight-year tenure in Cedar Falls.

The Panthers have 10 newcomers — including five true freshmen and Tennessee transfer Wes Washpun — that they’ll need to find roles for before the season opener on Nov. 9 at Ohio.

Chiefs pass rush on pace to set NFL sacks record

Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) – Justin Houston, Tamba Hali and the rest of the Kansas City Chiefs defense doesn’t seem to worry about their place in history. Wins are more important to them.
If they stopped to take stock through the first six weeks, they might be surprised.

After piling up 10 sacks in a win over the Raiders last Sunday, the Chiefs now have 31 this season. That puts them on pace to not only shatter the franchise record of 60 set during the 1990 season, but the NFL record of 72 set by the ’84 Bears. The sack became an official stat in 1982.

Houston leads the Chiefs with 9 1/2 sacks, tied with the Colts’ Robert Mathis for the most in the NFL. Hali is fourth with 7 1/2 on the year.

Frederickson Fund donates to Atlantic JSA & AHS football program

News, Sports

October 16th, 2013 by Ric Hanson

A representative of the Trevor Frederickson Memorial Fund says the organization recently donated $1,100 to the Atlantic Junior Sports Association (AJSA). Melanie Petty says the funds will help the AJSA to purchase a Football Chute, 5×10-foot Landing Mat and Chute Board Football Training Aides. photo

Petty says they are excited to learn how much the AJSA has grown in the last few years, and look forward to watching the kids continue to play in years to come. She said also, another donation of over $2,000 was given to the AHS Football Program to purchase items they needed to kick off their 2013 season.

Petty says football was always part of Trevor’s life,  so the two donations are a perfect fit for the Memorial Fund to give back to the community.
