Marriott becomes 10th, final XSAN Hawkeye Dirt Tour winner

first_imgFARLEY, Iowa (Sept. 13) – Hunter Marriott enjoyed more dividends from a season devoted largely to competing at IMCA’s top events Saturday night. Marriott became the 10th different winner in as many XSAN Hawkeye Dirt Tour events this season, earning $2,000 for his checkered flag efforts in the IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified series finale at Farley Speedway. The victory came during the Yankee Dirt Track Classic and put Marriott on the ballot for the 2015 Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational. “I really didn’t think we were that good from the get-go,” admitted Marriott, who started sixth, took the lead before halfway and beat 24th starting Troy Cordes across the stripe by a comfortable margin. “But I changed my line right before the first caution on lap 10 and just kept turning it up.” Cordes had taken a provisional and started 24th; Cayden Carter, Brian Mullen and Scott Hogan completed the top five in the 40-lapper. Forty-nine Modifieds were entered at Farley. Mike Van Genderen wrapped up the tour championship with his 10th place finish. His share of the series point fund is $600.Just a week removed from qualifying for the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s for the first time, Marriott turned some heads again in his career third visit to Farley.“We didn’t race weekly this year. We hit the big shows, trying to make ourselves better,” he said of this approach to the 2014 campaign. “That worked pretty good for us. We’ve got a lot of confidence right now. Everything is working pretty good for us.”Feature results – 1. Hunter Marriott, Brookfield, Mo.; 2. Troy Cordes, Dunkerton; 3. Cayden Carter, Oskaloosa; 4. Brian Mullen, Seymour, Wis.; 5.

Allen makes his mark in China again

first_img Allen never looked back from winning the first four frames and eventually won at a canter even though his his Welsh opponent narrowed the deficit back to 7-4 in the evening session. The Northern Irishman became the first person to win a world ranking tournament in successive years since John Higgins, whom Allen beat in the semi-final, triumphed in the Welsh Open in 2010 and 2011. Mark Allen retained his Haikou World Open crown after thrashing Matthew Stevens 10-4 in the final in China. Press Associationcenter_img “I’m very happy to win and retain my title, to win the same tournament two years in a row is a great achievement,” Allen told worldsnooker.com. “The snooker wasn’t as good as I had hoped. I didn’t get into a rhythm and I didn’t score very heavily. The scoreline was flattering, it wasn’t as one-sided as that. “But the result is all that matters. My form has been good for the last few months so I’m relieved, more than anything, to finally get a win. Hopefully I can push on now and win more.” Allen won the first three frames thanks to breaks of 48, 52 and 93. Stevens led 55-0 in the fourth frame only to see his opponent respond with a clearance of 58 but any thoughts Allen would storm to victory – like he did when he thumped Stephen Lee 10-1 in last year’s final – were put on the backburner when his Welsh opponent reduced the deficit to two frames with breaks of 67 and 112. However, 27-year-old Allen regained a four frame advantage, which included a break of exactly 100 to go 6-2 ahead. Stevens, competing in his first final in five years, ended the session on a high note by winning the last frame and keeping his hopes of a fightback in the evening session alive. And the 35-year-old appeared set to narrow the deficit further but poor positional play in the 10th frame cost him dear, with Allen snatching it following a brilliant long pot on the blue. A century break brought Stevens back to within three frames, but Allen made 55 and 68 – in-between a scrappy frame which the Antrim cueman also won – to clinch victory. last_img read more

Wenger: Title race is wide open

first_img The Gunners went two points clear at the summit with Saturday’s 2-1 win at Swansea as Aaron Ramsey set up Serge Gnabry for the first and added the second himself. The victory in south Wales extends Arsenal’s club-record run of away wins to 12, and was their eighth straight success in all competitions since their opening-day defeat against Aston Villa. While the north London side are in a rich vein of form, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea have all made stuttering starts under new management. The likes of Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton, meanwhile, have all enjoyed positive beginnings, and Wenger believes we could be about to witness an unpredictable, wide open title race. He said: “We have the desire to be champions, you can see that. “It’s still the early stages of the season, we have only played six games, but I would have signed up to have 15 points now after losing the first game. “Let’s just try and keep going. We have a chance but it is very open. “You can add Liverpool, Tottenham and Everton to the top four, it will be very interesting. “What has changed compared to years before is that at 80 per cent you will not beat any team in the Premier League. “You have to be at least between 95 and 100 per cent and that promises a very interesting season.” Arsene Wenger believes Arsenal can mount a full-on title challenge but has predicted the race to win the Barclays Premier League could involve half a dozen other contenders. Press Association Towards the end of Saturday’s game in Swansea, Wenger, celebrating 17 years in charge of Arsenal, was praised by the unlikely figure of Lord Sugar, the former Tottenham owner, on Twitter. The entrepreneur stated that Wenger was the best manager in the top flight. “It’s a nice compliment but I feel every manager in the Premier League is good,” said Wenger. “You cannot measure how good a manager is, you just try to do the job, but I accept the compliment.” The stand-out figure during Arsenal’s excellent recent run has been Ramsey. The Wales midfielder has been the driving force behind their resurgence, and his goal against Swansea was his eighth of the campaign to date. His contributions have stood out in a team including midfield talent of the calibre of Mesut Ozil and Jack Wilshere, and the England man believes there is even more to come from his colleague. “His fitness levels are not normal,” said Wilshere. “He’s naturally so fit he can score at any time in the game. You can see that. He’s pushing on in the 94th minute. Not many players can do that. He’s got his confidence back, which is nice to see. “If he carries on playing the way he is and working hard, he can improve further. “He’s got a great appetite for the game. He wants to improve. He’s training all the time. He’s not missing a training session, he’s fit, he’s young and he’s showing his best form. “Hopefully he can continue it and get even better.” last_img read more

CJ Stander signs two-year contract extension at Munster

first_imgMunster’s CJ Stander has signed a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the province until at least June 2018. The former South African Under-20 back-rower made his Munster debut in November 2012 and, having recently qualified for Ireland on residency, could now be drafted into Joe Schmidt’s Six Nations squad. “I am delighted to be committing my future to Munster Rugby,” said Stander, who has scored 22 tries in 69 appearances for the region. “This is very much home for me and it is a huge honour to represent the red jersey every week.” Stander, 25, was named Munster player of the year last season and has taken over the captaincy this term in the absence of Peter O’Mahony. Munster head coach Anthony Foley said, “Getting this news at this stage of the season is a great boost for the squad. “In securing the services of CJ for a further two years we are holding on to a key player within our group, one that gives everything to the jersey each week. “At such a young age he has shown his leadership qualities on and off the field and we know there is still more to come.” center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Paris crowd pays tribute to Manchester, London victims

first_img(REUTERS)-Fans at the Stade de France paid tribute to the victims of the recent militant attacks in Manchester and London before a soccer friendly between France and England on Tuesday.The Oasis song “Don’t Look Back in Anger” rang out as the teams emerged from the tunnel, with fans holding up red and white placards to form the England flag.The song, which was sung spontaneously in Manchester at a tribute to the victims of the attack in the northern English city last month, was performed by the musicians and choir of the French Army.The national anthems were reversed. “La Marseillaise” was played before “God Save the Queen”, with the words of both displayed on giant screens to help fans sing along.The players from both teams then formed a circle at the centre of the pitch and a minute’s silence was observed before the game started.The two attacks in as many weeks in Manchester and London killed 30 people.England fans sang along with the French anthem before a friendly at Wembley in November, 2015, just four days after a series of attacks by Islamist militants in and around the French capital.last_img read more

Emily Engstler has grown into a star for SU after turbulent freshman year

first_imgOver and over again, shots aimed at the hoop were smacked into the “U” in the “CUSE” branding behind a basket in the Carmelo K. Anthony Center.Seemingly every time Gabrielle Cooper and her teammates went up for a shot, Emily Engstler sent them crashing into the “U.” It was the first intrasquad pickup game of the 2018 summer, and the first time Cooper played with Engstler, then a freshman.Players were stunned when they first met the five-star recruit — “She is huge!” Cooper remembers thinking. SU was getting a 6-foot-1 forward with offensive skills like a guard who could also protect the rim. But the No. 9-overall 2018 prospect was also erratic, prone to emotional outbursts during practices and games. “You didn’t know what you were going to get from her,” former assistant coach Tammi Reiss said.“Is she going to cry? Is she going to get upset? Is she going to scream? Is she going to walk out? You just didn’t know,” Reiss said.Engstler’s teammates and coaches all point to one thing when asked about her time at SU: the adjustment. After a rocky first season, the Orange now know exactly what they’re getting with Engstler. She’s posted a team-high eight double-doubles and is third in the conference with 9.8 rebounds per game. Her more consistent play and improved attitude reinforce Engstler’s growth from freshman to sophomore year.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“A lot of your opponents don’t affect you,” head coach Quentin Hillsman said. “You affect you. If you stay level and you keep your head, you’re going to be able to score.”“It’s a constant message,” Hillsman added.Roshan Fernandez | Asst. Digital EditorLast year, Engstler came off the bench for all 29 games she played in, and her minutes fluctuated in the teens — a harsh reality for a player who’d played all game, every game for the last 12 years. She made mental mistakes and struggled to perform consistently, at one point describing the season as a “roller coaster.” But Engstler knew it wouldn’t be easy. She wouldn’t have gotten a tattoo with the word “Persevere” on the inside of her left index finger if she thought it would be. In Syracuse’s final game, a second-round loss in the NCAA tournament to South Dakota State, Engstler played only eight minutes and scored two points.Engstler never knocked on Hillsman’s office door to ask for more minutes, but frustrations bubbled. Reiss remembered times when Hillsman would substitute Engstler out of a game or a call wouldn’t go her way, and anger overcame her. Syracuse players were whistled for only two technical fouls last season, both on Engstler.She’d purposely shun Hillsman’s high-five offerings, Reiss said. Teammates noticed. “When she gets mad, she gets mad,” point guard Kiara Lewis said. And when Engstler’s teammates all try to calm her temper at once, it got worse, Lewis added.“Everyone deals with things in their own way,” Engstler said. “I was dealing with things in my own way, and sadly sometimes that didn’t reflect the person I was on the court.”Dealing with emotions on the court isn’t new for Engstler; it’s always been an issue for her. A lot of people chalked it up to her “passion for the game,” she said.But this year’s different, Engstler and those close to her said. She’s more stable, Reiss said, more locked in. Now playing 30 minutes per game, her main source of frustration has vanished. Gone are the days when she’d enter a game “mad at the world.”“Every year, to me, is a growth period,” Engstler said. “I was younger, and I think a lot has changed since then.”Engstler can’t quite describe her shift in mental focus, but she’s “tired” of arguing with referees and worrying about things she can’t control. She’s led Syracuse in assists five times, something she didn’t do once her freshman season. She didn’t record any double-doubles last year, either.Roshan Fernandez | Asst. Digital EditorSyracuse is at its best when Engstler impacts each facet of a game. After defensive rebounds, Engstler often pushes the ball up the court herself, which puts extra pressure on the defense. The 2018 New York state Gatorade player of the year tallied eight points, nine rebounds and six assists in SU’s most recent win over No. 5 Louisville.A month earlier, during an overtime win against Notre Dame on Jan. 5, Engstler scored a career-high 22 points and grabbed 15 rebounds to go with two assists, two blocks and a steal. Her ability to play in the paint and on the perimeter as a “hybrid” forward is one of the keys to forcing mismatches. She constantly makes the extra pass, finding shooters in the corner when a defender overcommits to her.“She just knows how it is now,” forward Digna Strautmane said. “And she tries to not make the same mistakes as she did last year.”This season, Engstler rarely sulks on the bench when she gets subbed out and hasn’t picked up any technicals. During practices, she’ll encourage teammates to communicate and follow instructions, Strautmane said. When someone jokes during a drill, Engstler tells them to refocus. She was often the quickest to slap hands with her teammates between walkthroughs at a mid-February practice.Her “Persevere” tattoo, the one inked before Engstler’s freshman campaign, was by far the most painful, she said. She got it before the technicals, the emotional outbursts, the roller-coaster season. Before the adjustment.  Now, it serves as a reminder of the frustration, the pain of that “growth period.” Comments Published on February 12, 2020 at 10:48 pm Contact Danny: dremerma@syr.edu | @DannyEmerman Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Mason City native’s latest film premieres in Hollywood on Saturday

first_imghttps://www.kglonews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/06/TWO-WAYS-HOME-TRAILER.mp4 LOS ANGELES — A movie that was shot entirely in Iowa, including in several locations in north-central Iowa, will have its world premiere in Hollywood’s famed Chinese Theater Saturday night, complete with searchlights and stars on a red carpet.Mason City native Tanna Frederick has the lead role in “Two Ways Home,” portraying a woman with bi-polar disorder who faces a series of personal challenges as she returns to the family farm. “I wanted to show that having a mental illness does not necessarily mark you as having a handicap,” Frederick says. “It can actually bring strength and hope into a person’s life and create who they are and create a hopeful message as they move forward in life. It can make them more of a fighter and a superhero.”Filming on the 90-minute feature began eight years ago as Frederick pushed to see Iowa represented less by horror movies and more for its heart and hard work. The 1995 Mason City High School graduate’s name appears at least three times in the credits, as the lead actress, co-writer of the screenplay, and as producer. “I love doing everything,” Frederick says, laughing. “I think that comes from my Iowa roots. It’s wanting to make sure that everything gets done right and it’s wanting to not sit back and watch things get done for me but to have a hand in everything.”The original story was written by Iowan Richard Schinnow, it featured a cast and crew of nearly all Iowans, and it was shot entirely in Iowa, including in Forest City, Garner and Mason City. “You do what you have to do to get it done,” she says, “and that’s the Iowan way.” “My mom helped set dress. It was my aunt and my uncle’s family farm,” Frederick says. “My dad and my mom were running and getting craft services and Subways and popsicles and picking people up from the airport.”Frederick co-founded the Iowa Independent Film Festival and launched “Project Cornlight” in 2011 to develop Iowa-based films showcasing in-state talent. “I’ve learned that doing something with a smaller budget and with your family is, and this is very Iowan as well, it’s something that shows up in the end as having huge heart and huge staying power,” Frederick says. “It is a force to be reckoned with beyond all forces, especially artistically.”At the moment, you’d have to fly to Los Angeles by tomorrow night to see the film on the big screen. Frederick is in the process of negotiating a way to distribute the movie and hopes an entity like Netflix or Lifetime will pick it up very soon. She promises, an Iowa screening is eminent.last_img read more
