Sports

September 26th, 2020 by Chris Parks

Trojan LogoThe Atlantic Trojans football team picked up an impressive road win over Des Moines Christian 38-0 on Friday night to improve to 4-1 on the year.

The Trojans blew the game open with a 21-point second quarter and tripled the offensive production of the Lions by the end of the night. Atlantic rolled up 342 yards of offense and held Des Moines Christian to just 101 yards for the game.

Garrett McLaren had an efficient performance in the passing game going 11-14 for 184 yards and 3 touchdowns. His top target was Colin Mullenix who hauled in 6 catches for 124 yards and two touchdowns. Atlantic dominated the time of possession as well by hanging on to the ball for 33:46 of regulation.

The Trojans take control of the District lead and will travel to Shenandoah next week. We’ll have that game on KJAN.

Des Moines Christian falls to 2-1 on the season. The Lions are set to travel to Red Oak next week.

By JASON L. YOUNG Associated Press
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Daniel Ponce de Leon pitched one-hit ball over six innings, Tommy Edman hit a two-run homer and the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Milwaukee Brewers 9-1 to split their pivotal doubleheader. In the opener, Christian Yelich homered and Brent Suter combined with Devin Williams and Josh Hader on a five-hitter for the Brewers in a 3-0 win. Both teams are among six NL clubs still vying for two open postseason spots. Milwaukee is two games behind St. Louis, and the Cardinals are percentage points behind Cincinnati for second place in the NL Central. The Reds clinched a playoff berth later Friday.

 

Bias suit seeks to block Iowa from cutting women’s swim team

By RYAN J. FOLEY Associated Press
IOWA CITY, Iowa (AP) — Members of the University of Iowa women’s swimming and diving team are suing the school over a decision to eliminate their program. The lawsuit argues that Iowa is not offering equal opportunity for female students in sports as required by a 1972 law that bars gender discrimination in federally funded education programs. The plaintiffs are four members of the team. They want a court to reinstate their program. They’re also seeking class-action status for all female undergraduate students and more sports opportunities. The university is cutting men’s and women’s swimming and diving, men’s tennis and men’s gymnastics due to budget woes.

 

CAM defense with three scores in big win over Lenox

Sports

September 26th, 2020 by Chris Parks

Three defensive touchdowns spurred CAM to a big 54-38 win over Lenox on Friday night. The Cougars returned two fumbles and one interception for scores to secure an important 8-Man District 7 road win.

The first drive was indicative of how the game would play out. Lenox won the toss and took the ball. The Tigers converted two early fourth downs and worked their way all the way down to the CAM 15 yard line. A holding penalty moved the Tigers back; then two plays later, on the 16th play of the drive, the Tigers fumbled and Joe Kauffman scooped up the loose ball and ran it back 55 yards for a CAM touchdown. The Tigers had taken 8 minutes off the clock but found themselves down 6-0.

Lane Spieker had three rushing touchdowns, one receiving, and one kickoff return TD to help CAM get the win.

Lenox tied it up on their next possession on a Brad Larson touchdown run. But the Cougars struck right back when they finally got their offense on the field. Lane Spieker took the Cougars first offensive play around the right edge for a 65 yard touchdown run. The game would stay close much of the rest of the way but the Cougars would never trail. CAM led early in the second half by two scores at 32-18 after a Cade Ticknor interception return touchdown. The Tigers climbed back to get within 32-30 on their next drive. Lane Spieker’s second of three rushing touchdowns pushed the lead to 38-30 for CAM, but the Tigers were driving to try and tie it. That’s when the CAM defense came up with another huge play. Connor McKee scooped up a Cullen Wood fumble and ran it back 65 yards for a touchdown to give CAM a comfortable advantage with about 3 1/2 minutes left. The two teams traded late scores to finish the game.

Lane Spieker finished with 125 yards rushing and three scores on the ground. He had one reception for 35 yards and a score, and also brought back a kick return for another TD.

CAM improves to 5-0 and are set to host Fremont-Mils in another big District 7 game next week. Lenox falls to 4-1 and they will take on Stanton/Essex next Friday in Essex.
