Wildcats’ bruiser Horton gathering steam

(AP Photo/John Bazemore)Kentucky running back Mikel Horton (4) runs into the end zone for a touchdown in the first half of an NCAA college football game against South Carolina Saturday, Sept. 12, 2015, in Columbia, S.C. (AP Photo/John Bazemore)LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky football has won its first two games by a combined 11 points. An argument could be made, then, that sophomore running back Mikel Horton is the Wildcats’ X-factor. He’s scored 12 points. The 6-foot-1, 226-pound bruiser has carried just eight times for 48 yards so far this season, but he’s made those opportunities count. Horton ripped off a 12-yard, game-winning touchdown in the opener against Louisiana-Lafayette, leveling a defender along the way. Then he scored UK’s first touchdown at South Carolina last week on an 8-yard rumble.Soon after, he suffered an unspecified head/neck injury and did not return. “I think he was set to have a big game,” Stoops said. “We feel like we have some good backs, and he’s a little bit different, so it’ll be good to have him out there.”That’s the best news for the Cats this week: Horton returned to practice and is expected to play against Florida. He’s a change of pace from smaller, faster backs Stanley “Boom” Williams and Jojo Kemp.Running back depth boosts Kentucky offense“I knew when he had that big run to win the game, his confidence was going to elevate. He was going to come out and be a different person,” running backs coach Chad Scott said. “He came out the next week and had an unbelievable week of practice and came out that first drive – he was just totally different. The touchdown run he had, where he stuck his foot in the ground and showed that extra gear … (and) he caught a pass right before that run … that’s all the things we’ve talked about him being able to do in the past.” Horton, a former four-star recruit from Ohio, has averaged 5.3 yards per carry in his college career. On 67 attempts, he’s gained 354 yards and scored four touchdowns. While he has never gotten more than 10 carries in a game, his role appears to be growing.

Serena Williams plans to participate in the “US Open” and “French…

first_img“I see myself in the tournament as long as it really happens,” said 23 Grand Slam title holder, who plans to hold his first WTA tournament in Kentucky on Monday after a six-month hiatus.After the US Open, Williams plans to go to France to play in the French Open, which is scheduled for September 27 to October 10.Meanwhile, it is known that the world’s first racket from Australia Ashley Barthy and also the named Spaniard Rafael Nadal will not play in the prestigious tournament in the USA.The US Open will take place in the familiar “bubble” format. Namely, the organizers will subordinate the entire infrastructure so that only accredited persons can access the competition venue. The US Open will also follow a pre-established sanitary protocol, similar to the NBA Championships in Orlando.Most players have withdrawn from the US Open to avoid quarantine for several days when they return to Europe.The two leading Latvian tennis players Anastasia Sevastova and Alona Ostapenko will also take part in the women’s tournament.Last year, Canadian Bianka Andres won Williams 6-3, 7-5 in the final.The US Open will take place from August 31 to September 12.last_img read more

FIFA U20 WC: I Can’t Wait to Make Coach Aigbogun Proud in Poland –…

first_imgWater FC of Abuja forward Success Makanjuola has vowed to make Flying Eagles coach, Paul Aigbogun proud when the 2019 FIFA Under-20 World Cup starts in Poland later this Month.The highly-rated left-footed forward, who is popularly called Young Messi by his fans, was among the 21 players selected by Aigbogun for the World Cup, which will be staged in Poland from 23rd May to 15th June. “I am very happy that the coach picked me and I’m more grateful to him because I know it was not an easy decision for the coach to pick the final squad,” Makanjuola said.“Like what the coach told all of us when he was announcing the list, he said ‘everybody has done very well in training but  can’t take everyone to the World Cup,’ so I think the entire team owe him a lot when the tournament starts, and personally I can’t wait to put up a very good performance for the coach”.The 18-year-old dazzling winger further hailed the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) for the level of preparation the team is having in Germany ahead of the World Cup. “I think for us the players we don’t have any excuse not to make our country proud in Poland  because everything we need has been given to us by the NF, from camping to motivation, so we  just want to put smiles on the faces of all Nigerians and we are asking for their prayers”, Makanjuola stressed.The Flying Eagles will begin their World Cup campaign on the 24th of May against Qatar before subsequent group games against the United States of America and Ukraine.Nigeria’s last appearance at the FIFA U20 World Cup was in New Zealand four years ago, where Coach Manu Garba’s boys were eliminated in the Round of 16 by Germany in Christchurch.Related12th All-Africa Games: Aigbogun Picks 18 for Rabat 2019August 12, 2019In “Africa”FIFA U20 WC: Aigbogun Points Qatar as Key to Tournament SuccessMay 15, 2019In “FIFA”FIFA U20 WC: Birthday Boy Makanjuola Vows To Score Against QatarMay 23, 2019In “National Team”last_img read more

Fast start key for three-time Deery champion Kay

first_img“We had to pass a lot of cars that night. It didn’t look good for us at the beginning of the race but we kept at it and won.” said Kay, who had started 24th after cutting a tire in his heat and then restarted at the back after changing a flat midway through the 50-lap main event.  Kay opened the IMCA Late Model tour with victories at Cedar County Raceway, Maquoketa Speedway and Quad City Speedway. He collected half a dozen top five’s, clinching the title by starting the Sept. 21 finale at Davenport Speedway. WHEATLAND, Iowa – His fast start and a typically consistent string of top five finishes the rest of the way took Justin Kay to his career third Deery Brothers Summer Series championship. “We got off to a really good start and just kept trying to do our best the rest of the way,” said the Wheatland, Iowa, driver, also champion of the 2014 and 2015 series. HIS CREW: Parents and car owners Ricky and Brenda Kay, Scott Fitzpatrick, Tyler Madigan, Wyatt Pewe, Zach Frields and Al Dlouhy. HIS SPONSORS: Kay Farms and Elevator, JMR S & J Motorsports, Petersen Insurance, Wheatland Auto Body, JR’s Place Bar & Grill and HeineeJo’s Bar & Grill, all of Wheatland; Nutrien of Wyoming; Hoker Trucking of Dixon; Doug Nigh’s RPMS of Maquoketa; Allstar Performance of Watervliet, Mich.; Performance Bodies of Cedar Falls; ML Suspension of Mooresville, N.C.; Sweet Manufacturing of Kalamazoo, Mich.; Wilwood of Camarillo, Calif.; Eibach Springs of Corona, Calif.; Wehrs Machine and Racing Products of Bangor, Wis.; Chase Race Decals of Ames; Callies Crankshafts of Fostoria, Ohio; DMI/Bulldog Rear Ends of Lancaster, Pa.; and Dynamic Drivelines and Karl Performance, both of Des Moines. “There were a couple other nights when we might have had the car to win with but we stayed smart and raced for points,” he added. “We got to race at some new tracks this year and that was fun.”  Also the winner of the last Deery event in 2017, he matched the series record of four straight victories shared by Gary Webb, Rob Toland and Brian Harris with the May 6 checkers at East Moline. “After I crashed and bent the car up pretty good, Al is the one who got it back in one piece,” he said. “Without guys like that around, racing is hard to do.”  Wins-3                    Top Five Finishes-9           Starts-11 Kay picked up a few Modified dates with Matt Ryan and credited Al Dlouhy with helping him get the Late Model back on track again.  He’s now tied for third on the all-time Deery Series list with 27 wins. Justin Kay started the IMCA Late Model tour with three straight main event wins and ended 2018 with his career third Deery Brothers Summer Series championship. IMCA President Brett Root is at right.

WATCH: Former Bulls props’ incredibly dangerous and cynical on-field act

first_imgFormer Bulls prop Pierre Schoeman might’ve made a great impression in his first year with Scottish side Edinburgh, winning the side’s Player-of-the-Year award as well as scooping up a new contract.But the 25-year-old has also been in the headlines for the wrong reasons after he engaged in an incredibly dangerous act during last weekend’s Pro 14 meeting with Irish giants Munster.Schoeman lifted the padding to the right-hand upright while Edinburgh were on defence in a move cynically designed to prevent a try being scored. The rule book dictates that a team will score a five-pointer if a player places the ball at the base of the padding.However, it’s also obviously there for safety too.Referee Marius Mitrea was only made aware of the incident by Munster’s players afterwards, who bafflingly only have Schoeman a warning.Munter coach and former Bok assistant Johann van Graan wasn’t impressed.“In my view you can’t touch the goalposts,” he said.“It is the safety of the game. You can’t pull that up; there’s been another incident in world rugby where that was a yellow and straight penalty try”For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more

Ladies rule at 9th John Preddy & Memorial Golf Tournament

first_imgTechnical prizes (in two flights) were available on every hole, provided by our generous sponsors, and this kept everyone’s interest, even when falling out of contention for the main competition prizes.  The novelty technical prize for nearest to the tree (in the middle of the fairway) on the par 5, 14th hole produced a great shot from Marlene Prudden which finished just a couple

darkness set in at 6pm.The free buffet and prize giving was held at Lewinski’s bar, and the staff there put on an excellent spread to satiate the hungry golfers.Geoff Parker (right) presents the men’s individual trophy to Sugar Ray Handford.This was the first year that lady golfers had participated in the event and they certainly made their presence felt by winning the inaugural Memorial trophy for the team event, and Duang Butpanya also took the Ladies/Seniors trophy.  The John Preddy men’s individual trophy was won by Sugar Ray Handford with 41 points, two points clear of a cluster of five players on 39 who had to be separated on count backs.Special mention is due for one player who attempted to break the course record for the number of beers consumed during a round, managing to drink 10 prior to teeing off and 14 during the round (yes – the caddies were counting!), and he still came home with 36 points!The tournament was a charity event organized in conjunction with the PSC to raise money for local children’s charities, and the spirit of the day was embodied by Shane Ruddle who won the special par three jackpot prize, and generously donated half of his winnings back to charity.Grateful thanks are due to Emerald Golf Club, together with all our corporate and individual sponsors, as well as all the players who contributed to a successful tournament.John Preddy

the Navy course on another bright, sunny morning.We teed off on schedule on the East nine and it soon became clear that it was going to be a question of the survival of the fittest, as the temperature was stifling over the outward nine holes.  The course was in good condition and the greens were running at a reasonable speed and we progressed at a steady pace throughout the round.Duang Butpanya

that he normally struggles with, as he came home with the best score of the day on 38 points.Mike Lloyd recorded the first victory of his current visit, winning the A flight with 34 points, two points clear of Tony Berry and Alan Harris who had to be separated on a count back.Ken Davidson narrowly missed out on a podium position in the B flight, but he recorded back to back birdies on the inward nine – surely a rare feat for a player playing off a 22 handicap!A Flight1st Mike Lloyd (14) 34pts2nd Tony Berry (12) 32pts3rd Alan Harris (9) 32ptsB Flight1st Thomas Nyborg (19) 38pts2nd Mike Corner

the month’ title with three contenders, Alan Harris, Geoff Parker, and Gordon Melia all still in with a chance of taking the coveted trophy.  Contrary to tradition the three title contenders went off in the first group rather than the last, in nearly ideal weather conditions, and with a clear course ahead of them.The course was in good condition and the greens were running fast and true, so everything was in place for a fine contest.  Unfortunately it soon turned into a one horse race as Geoff Parker blew his handicap on the outward nine and Gordon Melia was also dropping careless shots, whilst Alan Harris was playing some great golf and completed the front nine three shots under his handicap and only two over par.  Gordon continued dropping unnecessary shots on the inward nine whilst Alan was as steady as rock, and eventually came home with the best score of the day on net 69 – a worthy champion.Gerry Cooney took second place in the A flight ahead of Tony Scambler who edged out Colin Greig on a count back.  Ross Schiffke won the B flight, also on a count back, ahead of Geoff Williams, with Tom Jones making a welcome return to the podium in third place.The day was spoilt when after completing the outward nine at a good pace, the leading group arrived on the 10th tee to find that an invasion of Korean golfers had taken over the back nine, with three groups waiting on the tee and other groups spread all over the remaining holes.  With all their golfers in buggies they were charging around like madmen looking for any vacant tee box, in no particular order, and it’s a sad reflection on the management of the course that they allow such anti-social behavior.A Flight1st Alan Harris (9) net 692nd Gerry Cooney (14) net 713rd Tony Scambler (9) net 72B Flight1st Ross

PSC Golf Bunker Boys @ The RanchMonday, Nov. 24, The Emerald – StablefordThe John Preddy memorial golf tournament has been held for the last 8 years, but this year the event was expanded to remember those local golfing friends who have passed away recently.  The format was an individual Stableford competition for the John Preddy trophy with a simultaneous team competition for the newly purchased Memorial trophy, which is inscribed with the names of recently departed local golfers.  The team event was an inter-society tournament including teams from six local golf societies and a total of 144 players assembled at the Emerald golf course on a bright, sunny, but humid morning. The first groups teed off on schedule at 8am, and although we had the complete course to ourselves a holdup began to develop on the par-three 5th hole after the first half dozen groups had passed through, and this slowed down the pace of play for all the following groups for the remainder of the round.Jim Preddy presents the Memorial Trophy to the winning team – Duang’s Girls.last_img read more
