A quiet day at Emerald

first_imgMickey came first in the comp today with 38points and he sank some very nice putts.  JJ ran him a close second with 37 while the ‘Quiet Man’ came third with 36.The skins were dished out evenly with Mickey and ‘Foos yer doos’ getting four apiece, ‘Randyman’ and the ‘Quiet Man’ had three each while Mike and JJ shared two between them.‘Randyman’ took the near pin at the short par-three 15th.After the presentations we headed into town for some drinks where the winner stood his hand as has become traditional in our little band. The Backyard Golf SocietyIt was a very overcast day for the Backyard Boys at the Emerald on Friday, March 7.  The clouds kept the sun at bay the whole round so the temperature didn’t go too high, a nice way to play golf. It was noted by all that it was a far quicker round today; the course wasn’t jam packed like the few previous weeks and it seems low season is on its way, which always makes some of us happy.  Quite a few of our lads have gone back home and others back to work so our group was down to seven today.Mickey (center rear) celebrates his win with the staff at the Candy Bar.last_img read more

2016 Flat Owner Championship Goes Down to the Wire

first_imgDonnacha O’Brien to be Crowned Champion Apprentice Rider Pat Smullen was first crowned Champion Jockey in 2000 and he heads the list for the ninth time this year. He is on-course to better his 2014 tally of 108 winners and will certainly count his Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby success on Harzand as the highlight of his domestic season. He also enjoyed notable success with Fascinating Rock, Shamreen and Zhukova. For the second successive year, Smullen looks set to beat Colin Keane into second place in the title race.Donnacha O’Brien (18) is another to enjoy a tremendous season and in just his third season riding has captured the Champion Apprentice title. Closing in on 50 winners, Donnacha is clear of Gary Halpin, Killian Leonard and his sister Ana in the table. The standout moment of his season was undoubtedly his first Group 1 success which came at the Curragh on Longines Irish Champions Weekend where he won the Moyglare Stud Stakes on Intricately, trained by his brother, Joseph. For good measure, the filly was bred by their mother, Annemarie. Donnacha also won a listed race and a Group 3 race on Order Of St George during the season. The 2016 Flat season draws to a close at Leopardstown on Saturday, October 29th, and the day will be marked by presentations to the champion owner, trainer, jockey and apprentice. Aidan O’Brien to Retain Champion Trainer Title The title of Champion Owner looks set to go right down to the wire with Mrs Sue Magnier holding the slenderest of leads over HH The Aga Khan. Part-owner of the brilliant Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes winner Alice Springs and the Keeneland Phoenix Stakes winner Caravaggio, Mrs Magnier is bidding for her 14th owners’ title since 2000. HH The Aga Khan lies in a close second place in the current standings and he counts the Dubai Duty Free Irish Derby winner Harzand and Longines Irish Champions Weekend winner, Shamreen among his big winners.Aidan O’Brien is once again the Champion Flat Trainer. The fillies Minding and Found were his big prize-money winners during another tremendous season for Ballydoyle. O’Brien saddled Seventh Heaven to win the Darley Irish Oaks while he also enjoyed Group 1 success with the two-year-olds Churchill and Caravaggio. His other domestic Group 1 winner in 2016 was Alice Springs who won the Coolmore Fastnet Rock Matron Stakes at Leopardstown on Longines Irish Champions Weekend.

Baseball: March 20 Scoreboard

first_imgThe Huskies, after adding one run in the third, plated five more across the sixth (1), seventh (3) and eighth innings (1) to break the game open and give Wright plenty of cushion as he retired the side for his fourth time on the day in the ninth. Sam Houston State 2, Nicholls 1Sam Houston State 6, Nicholls 1HUNTSVILLE, Texas – A Miles Manning walk-off hit in game one and a dominant starting performance by Logan Boyd in game two led Sam Houston State to a doubleheader sweep of Nicholls. The final game of the series is scheduled for Sunday at 1:00 p.m. There will be no game Saturday. Saturday’s game was moved from 2 o’clock to 1 o’clock, and Sunday’s finale remains at its slated time as of Friday night, although the option for a doubleheader will be discussed Saturday morning. Oller meanwhile kept the Lumberjacks under control until the ninth inning when SFA’s Eric DeJesus drilled a two-out, two-run triple to make things interesting. Oller then retired Matthew Dickey to finish NSU’s victory. All but one hitter in the starting lineup had a hit in the contest, and every starter reached base. Lamar used two pinch hitters, and one (Provost) reached base on a hit. Nicholls tied the game in the top of the seventh. With one out designated hitter Justin Smith doubled into the gap in left center and scored on a single by second baseman Tanner Vandevere. Boyd went eight innings and allowed the one run on six hits. He also struck out five batters in the game. Sophomore Sam Odom tossed a perfect ninth inning in relief. Oller’s second complete game of the year came after SFA (7-17, 2-6) edged the Demons (12-10, 6-2), 5-3, in the opener. Shortstop Miles Manning legged out an infield single to give Sam Houston a 4-0 lead going to the second inning. – Return to top – The Privateers scored their lone run in the bottom of the seventh inning when Ray Veit grounded out to second base and pushed across Matt Rykacze. Rykacze reached on a first-pitch double to center field and advanced to third on a ground out from Parker Jones. Cort Brinson cut the lead to 4-3 in the eighth inning with a sacrifice fly, but the Demons were unable to draw any closer. GAME 2:The Kats started the ballgame with an offensive barrage. Center fielder Colt Atwood, Smith and Johnson each singled to start the game. Atwood came home for the first run on Johnson’s single to left field. Sam Houston added two more runs with two outs in the second inning. Lee singled to center field and designated hitter Dylan Ebbs worked a walk. Rahm singled to plate Lee and third baseman Hunter Courson drove in Ebbs with a single to center. The Huskies added three runs in both the fourth and fifth innings, later scoring one more in the eighth for the 9-2 victory. In total, HBU was issued seven walks and had three batters hit by a pitch by the Bear pitching staff. Neither team would score the rest of the way. Manning then lined a 2-1 pitch into center field to score Powell and end the game. Angelle had been the “Saturday guy” for the Cardinals for most of this season. It was the first series he opened. Houston Baptist 10, Central Arkansas 1Houston Baptist 9, Central Arkansas 2HOUSTON, Texas – The HBU baseball team got strong showings from both their pitchers and hitters in taking two games from Central Arkansas by scores of 10-1 and 9-2 on Friday as part of a doubleheader at Husky Field. Abilene Christian 5, McNeese State 0Recap to follow. Junior Brandon Morones turned in two multi-hit games, going 5-for-7 in total with four runs scored. Senior Sam Wiggins followed Morones with a 5-for-9 day, with a double, two RBI and two runs scored. After a 1-for-4 showing in the first game, Wiggins closed the afternoon with a 4-for-5 performance. In total, five Huskies recorded hits in both games. It was Lamar’s second shutout this season, first was a 12-0 win over Manhattan. In the second game, junior Matthew McCollough (5-1) recorded a similar outing, holding UCA to two runs, both coming on a home run in the seventh, across eight innings. McCollough fanned eight and walked one across 31 batters faced before giving way to junior Dylan Zarosky, who pitched a scoreless ninth to secure the series win. Senior Taylor Wright (4-2) went the distance in the series opener to pick up the first complete game of his career. The native of Habersham, Georgia, also logged a career-high nine strikeouts in limiting the Bears to just one run. Wright scattered five hits, including a home run in the sixth inning, and two walks on 116 pitches and 33 batters faced. The dagger was in the seventh inning, which started with three-straight singles from Santana, Seeley and Markum. Markum’s hit scored Santana for his second run batted in of the game, tied a career high. Seeley scored when Brendan Satran reached on a throwing error from the third baseman on a sacrifice bunt, and Markum scored on Mason Salazar’s sacrifice fly to right field. Angelle (2-3) pitched a complete game for the Cards (9-12, 1-6 Southland Conference) and allowed only one run and scattered seven hits. He held a shutout through 7.1 frames. The Privateers fell to 8-13 on the season and 2-5 in league play. In the first game, SFA jumped to a 2-0 advantage against Adam Oller (3-2) and used a tiebreaking two-run seventh inning to grab the victory. – Return to top – – Return to top – Stephen F. Austin 5, Northwestern State 3Northwestern State 6, Stephen F. Austin 3NACOGDOCHES, Texas – Another weekend, another complete game for one of Northwestern State’s Oller brothers. The Huskies (11-11, 3-2 SLC) outscored UCA (11-6, 6-2 SLC) 19-3 and out hit the Bears 29-12 in pulling even on the season at 11-11. The victories also gave UCA, who entered the series 6-0 in Southland Conference action, its first losses in league play. HBU taxed Bear starter Brandon Hagerla (3-1) for four runs on five hits in the bottom of the second to take a 4-0 lead in the series opener. Morones, Andrew Alvarez, Thomas Clay, Zach Nehrir and Louie Payetta all singled in the frame. Josh Oller went the distance in Friday’s second game of a Southland Conference doubleheader at Stephen F. Austin, helping the Demons earn a split of the twinbill with a 6-3 victory. GAME 1:The Bearkats and Colonels were knotted 1-1 going to the bottom of the ninth before Manning’s heroics in the series opener. CJ Moore started off the game with a one-out triple to right center in the first inning, and scored on a fielder’s choice that allowed Kevin Santana to reach first base. His fielder’s choice got Jake Nash, who was plucked with a three-ball count, at second base. After Logan Boyd had been perfect for the first three frames, Nicholls got to him with some small ball. A bunt single started the inning. Then Boyd fielded a sacrifice bunt attempt and made a great play but the ball was dropped at first base putting two runners on with no outs. After another infield single the Colonels got on the board with a sacrifice fly. SHSU started the game well after left fielder Bryce Johnson led off the game with a single up the middle and Colt Atwood sacrificed him to second base. The freshman moved to third on a wild pitch and scored on an error at shortstop. Travis Lee picked up the RBI with the ground ball to shortstop. First baseman Spence Rahm, who had four hits over the two games, worked a walk with one out in the ninth and was pinch-run for by senior Wyatt Powell. After a fly out, second baseman Zach Smith singled to center field to extend the inning. Powell moved to third when the center fielder misplayed the ball. LU’s final run of the game and seventh inning was Satran on Justin Eckols’ sacrifice fly. Right fielder Travis Lee and Rahm each worked walks to plate a second run with just one out in the bottom of the first. Catcher Collin Yelich was hit by a pitch to drive in a third run.

Austin 5, Northwestern State 3Northwestern State 6, Stephen F. Austin 3 Seeley finished with three hits in five at-bats and had two runs scored and one knocked in. Moore was 2-for-6 with two runs scored- a season high, and Markum was 2-of-4 with two RBI and a run. Stijn van der Meer and Santana also contribute two hits to the cause. HBU again got on the board early in the second game, plating two in the bottom of the first off UCA’s Riley Echols (2-1). Nehrir walked and advanced to second on a sac bunt, before senior Curtis Jones delivered him on a single to right field. Jones, who advanced to second on the throw to the plate on the play, quickly moved up to second on a wild pitch in the next at bat, before Wiggins drove him home on a single through the left side. The Kats would then go until the seventh inning without another hit. Parker also led off the seventh inning with a triple and scored on Joel Atkinson’s RBI single. – Return to top – He scored when Seeley reached on a fielding error, and Seeley scored on Kyle Markum’s double to right center. Starter Andrew Godail tossed seven innings and allowed just the one run on five hits. He finished with five strikeouts and didn’t issue a walk in the game. Lamar 8, New Orleans 1NEW ORLEANS, La. – Chase Angelle pitched a sensational game and the Lamar baseball team backed him with eight runs on 15 hits to give the Cardinals its first Southland Conference win on an 8-1 victory over New Orleans on Wednesday at Maestri Field. The senior put together four three up, three down innings (second, fourth, sixth, ninth), and only allowed five runners to make it into scoring position. Angelle finished with 117 pitches and had two walks and 10 strikeouts, a career high. Lamar added another in the third inning when Reed Seeley singled to center field and scored Moore for the second time. Moore reached with a one-out infield single and advanced to second on when Nash flew out to left field. Santana pushed Moore up to third base with another infield single. C.J. Webster, Caleb Dugas and Miller Parker drove in runs in the fourth and Dugas scored on wild pitch. It was the first RBI of Parker’s career and came in his first career start. Alex Smith (2-4) took the loss on five innings pitched and allowed four runs, two earned, on nine hits and a strikeout. Jared Taylor relieved him for two innings and gave up four runs on three hits. Nick Halliday finished the game and gave up three hits. The series concludes Sunday with a 1 p.m. first pitch at Jaycees Field in Nacogdoches. With a forecast calling for a 90 percent chance of rain around Nacogdoches, the teams decided to move up their Saturday game and created Friday’s doubleheader.  Sam Houston took Game 1 by a score of 2-1 and in Game 2 the Bearkats won 6-2. – Return to top – In the nightcap, Northwestern State gave Oller (5-0) plenty of cushion with a four-run fourth inning that turned a one-run lead into a five-run advantage. The Huskies will go for the series sweep of UCA on Saturday in a 1 p.m. first pitch. The Cardinals took advantage of a couple of UNO errors in the fifth inning and pushed it to 4-0. Nash reached first to lead off the inning after he was plucked for the second time in the game. He reached second on a groundout from Santana and took third after a failed pickoff attempt rolled into center field.last_img read more
