FARLEY, Iowa (Sept. 19) – A season that’s seen its share of highs and lows saw another high spot Saturday for Troy Cordes.Cordes topped the 30-lap Hawkeye Dirt Tour feature for Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds during the Yankee Dirt Track Classic at Farley Speedway. The win paid $2,000 and put him on the ballot for next September’s Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational.“I’d started second but fell back to about fifth. The car was too tight at the beginning,” he said. “The track was slick, which was unbelievable for the amount of rain they’d had.”Cordes got back to third following a lap 18 restart, then passed Jason Schueller and Kyle Brown for the lead and eventual checkers.Brown hung on to the runner-up position and became the sixth different driver to win the tour title in as many years the series has been held.He’d started the night with a four-point advantage over defending champion Mike Van Genderen, who finished 11th.Schueller, Justin Kay and Matt Gansen rounded out the top five.“This was definitely an up and down year for us, for sure,” said Cordes, who had won for the 100th time in his IMCA Modified career in May and clinched his sixth Benton County Speedway title with a top five finish on Sunday. “We struggled some early in the season and didn’t win as many as we’d have liked. The rainouts didn’t help, either.”Different drivers won each of the eight HDT events held in 2015, making for a second consecutive season in which no driver could win more than once.Feature results – 1. Troy Cordes, Dunkerton; 2. Kyle Brown, State Center; 3. Jason Schueller, Dubuque; 4. Justin Kay, Wheatland; 5. Matt Gansen, Zwingle; 6. Jeff Larson, Freeport, Ill.; 7. Chris Zogg, New Liberty; 8.

Manchester City have further enhanced their international presence by announcing a new partnership with South African club Black Aces FC. As part of the Black Aces deal, City will deliver coaching programmes to local children and the Academy sides will also have the opportunity to travel to and play in Manchester. The programme will follow the same training techniques and philosophies of the City first team, in keeping with the “holistic approach” the club are developing towards all aspects of their football. City will also set up a coach education programme at the club. Patrick Vieira, head of City’s elite development squad, “It’s a privilege for Manchester City to be part of South Africa’s youth football development by passing on our expertise to the Black Aces coaches, at a time when the country is fast becoming a force in world football. “Through shared learning, both clubs can work together in order to provide children with a holistic football experience that places equal importance on football and education.” City are also due to visit South Africa as part of their pre-season programme this summer, playing two games in July. The three-year arrangement will see Black Aces, based in the Mpumalanga province, become City’s “official regional school of football partner”. The move comes after the recent announcement of other international projects such as the launch of a New York-based team in Major League Soccer and the successful establishment of an Academy in Abu Dhabi.

A visitor to Bermuda from the United States who was forced to spend part of his honeymoon in prison after a bullet was found in his backpack, has been fined US$350 by a magistrate. He was the second American visitor caught with live ammunition in the country, where guns are illegal, in the past week. On Monday, the Magistrates’ Court heard that the ammunition was discovered as James Latham, 20, of Virginia, tried to re-board the cruise ship Anthem of the Seas at Dockyard.The court heard that the bullet was discovered by security personnel as Latham tried to go on board on Saturday.Latham, who admitted the offence, told the court he went to a shooting range at home before he started his trip and was unaware that the round was in his bag. He told the court that he was on his honeymoon when he was arrested. “I am truly sorry,” said Latham who described the one night and two days he had spent in jail as “very scary”. “This won’t ever happen again,” he added.Magistrate Tyrone Chin said Latham’s honeymoon had been memorable “for all the wrong reasons.”Last week, Julie Martin, 36, a real estate agent from the state of Kentucky, was fined US$800 by Magistrate Khamisi Tokunbo after she admitted having five rounds of live ammunition in her handbag without a license as she preparing to leave Bermuda on the same cruise ship during a previous visit to the island.
Owner of Division One League team, Proud United, Jojo Duncan, Jojo Duncan, has raised questions over the decision of the Ghana FA to reduce the Division One League to 18 teams from the current number of 48.On May 15, the FA announced that it had decided to form a committee to implement the transitional provision from 48 teams to 18.The change in the number of teams is steeped in Article 81 (6) of the GFA statutes which states that:“The number of delegates representing the Division One League shall be reduced to 18 (down from the current 48) at the latest by the end of the second football season following the adoption of these Statues.”Duncan believes that the FA has not given very cogent arguments to support the transition and that trying to replicate ideas from other countries without taking the Ghanaian context into question is not the way to go for Ghana football.He spoke to Skyy Power FM in Takoradi on Wednesday.“South Africa is different from Ghana in every aspect so we cannot go and copy exactly what they do. We copy anyhow and want to always import intelligence from everywhere.There is a reason we moved to a 48 team league. The GFA should give tangible reasons why we should get rid of 30 DOL clubs.”Duncan went on to give some suggestions on how the GFA could improve on the current Division One League which is played across three zones in the country.“I think we can improve on our zonal DOL. We need to expand to a 4th zone to accommodate the 6 new regions and we have 12 teams in each zone.We will have more exciting local derbies if we restructure it well. We should not do away with half of the teams so a few benefit.”
Warriors coach Steve Kerr is taking the blame in the midst of a rare losing streak on the road for Golden State as the team fell to the Pistons on Saturday, despite having Stephen Curry back from injury. After a devastating 111-102 loss and dropping 4-7 on the road this season, Kerr called it one of his worst performances as a coach and said he needs to do a better job bringing his team together. “I did not like our offense tonight. I’ve got to do a better job,” Kerr said (via USA Today). “Tonight was probably a game that I could mark down as one of my worst performances as a coach, honestly.”All in all, I’ve got to do a better job than I’ve done here the first couple months of the season. This is … just gotta get better. We’ve gotta get better shots. We gotta get more spacing, get better flow.” Related News Steve Kerr takes blame for the Warriors lack of 3s, calls tonight one “of my worst performances as a coach,” said he’s gotta create more space for his offense, unclog paint pic.twitter.com/884K8JjRIv— Anthony Slater (@anthonyVslater) December 2, 2018The Warriors have now lost six straight games on the road, which is unprecedented. Prior to this streak, they had never lost more than three straight road games under Steve Kerr, according to ESPN Stats & Info.Kerr explained that he didn’t like some of the combinations he used and that the Warriors have to make adjustments to their spacing on the court. “I’m just tired of seeing three people in the paint every time we are penetrating,” Kerr said. “The paint is so bunched up. I know we are top-heavy with our shooting. We’ve got obviously some of the great shooters in our starting lineup, but we’ve got a lot of guys that are coming off the bench or been in the lineup who are not 3-point shooters or aren’t shooting 3s.”So I’ve got to do a better job of finding combinations that work and find spacing that works. Because right now, what we’re [seeing] is not working.”The Warriors (15-9) are sitting fourth in the Western Conference behind the Clippers, Nuggets and Thunder. They have a day off before facing the Hawks (5-18) on the road Monday.

Considering the injury began so benignly, it’s a bizarre sequence of events. The infected cut could have been anywhere; Pollock’s history of injuries to his right elbow is almost incidental. Call it a run of bad luck with an important body part for a right-handed throwing baseball player.“I can’t explain why,” Pollock said. “It’s just one of those things. I’m a pretty faith-driven guy. It’s God’s plan. It’s not my plan. It’s frustrating. I keep trusting, just trusting in His plan. Keep moving forward. Definitely, I’ve been through some bizarre stuff.”NEW ROLE FOR D’ARNAUDManager Dave Roberts said Travis d’Arnuad will get the bulk of his work at first base and left field with the Dodgers – positions d’Arnaud never played in seven major league seasons with the Mets.Primarily a catcher, d’Arnaud is the Dodgers’ third option behind Austin Barnes and Russell Martin. Roberts said d’Arnaud is comfortable at third base too, “but with our roster construction, it just doesn’t seem to make sense at third base.”Instead, d’Arnaud will split his pregame reps between ground balls at first base and fly balls in left field.Related Articles LOS ANGELES — A.J. Pollock won’t play for the Dodgers until June, and perhaps not until July. The extent of his absence has little to do with his right elbow, but for all practical purposes his story begins there. It’s a story he finally had a chance to tell Monday, when the Dodgers returned home for a nine-game homestand.On April 25 in Chicago, Pollock was removed after playing eight innings against the Cubs. He wasn’t hurt as far as he could tell.Back in the visitors’ clubhouse, Pollock said, “I went to take off my cleats and put sneakers on so I could run back out. I was looking at my uniform and I saw blood, just a little bit of blood. I was trying to figure out where on my body was bleeding. It was my elbow. I must have bumped it. I could’ve bumped it in the locker room. It was so innocent, I don’t even know where I bumped it.”It was a small cut. It wasn’t infected, as far as he could tell, “but any time it’s near my elbow I’m overly cautious,” Pollock said. In 2010 and again in 2016, he fractured the same elbow playing for the Arizona Diamondbacks. Pollock played a couple more games during the Dodgers’ homestand against the Pittsburgh Pirates and accompanied the team on last week’s trip to San Francisco. That’s where, in his words, the elbow “blew up.”Pollock flew back to Los Angeles. On Thursday, Dr. John Itamura removed the metal plates and screws that were inserted during an earlier elbow procedure.More significantly, Pollock was diagnosed with a staphylococcus infection that would require a rigorous round of antibiotics. He had a picc line – a catheter tube that delivers medicine to the body – inserted into a vein in his left biceps. It must remain in place for six weeks, Pollock said. That will push his timeline for recovery to the second week of June at the earliest. How much time he’ll need to get back on the field afterward is a mystery.“If I didn’t have (the picc line), it would be a lot quicker,” Pollock said. “Unfortunately I have to wait for that. But I do feel pretty fortunate in general. My other surgery a couple years ago went really well, to the point where I didn’t need that metal in there. I feel really good that they could take it out and don’t have to worry. The elbow is strong. It’s 100 percent healed.”Pollock said a follow-up appointment Wednesday will help clarify his timeline for when he can begin to throw and perform other baseball activities. His left arm will be less mobile than his right because of the picc line. Pollock said he can do lower-body workouts during his recovery time, but because sweat can compromise a staph-infected area, he will be somewhat limited.

He started in right field Monday against the Braves, and Roberts said he would try to limit Bellinger’s reps at first base.“Talking to the training staff, the likelihood that he potentially could dive for a ball to his right could increase his chance (of re-injury), versus diving for a ball in the outfield is less likely,” Roberts said. “So to say that he’s not going to play (first base) is probably a little too aggressive, but I think ideally we’ll try to keep him in the outfield.”UP NEXTDodgers (LHP Hyun-Jin Ryu) vs. Braves (LHP Max Fried), Tuesday, 7 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available), 570 AM Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error
