(Photo by Bill Stockland) Share No. 3 UWF sweeps midweek series with North Georgiacenter_img PENSACOLA, Fla. – The No.3 West Florida baseball team swept its two-game, midweek series with North Georgia with a 6-2 victory Wednesday afternoon at Jim Spooner Field. The Argonauts (19-4) improved to 10-1 at home this season and 30-2 at home in the past two seasons. “I was proud of the offense today,” UWF coach Mike Jeffcoat said. “We had a great start by Walker O’Connor. Kevin Peters did a nice job relieving. We tried to get Dayan Rodriguez an inning, kind of a midweek bullpen work, and he struggled a little bit.“But it was great series win against a quality North Georgia ball club. Tom Cantrell is a good coach, and that’s going to be big for us down the road.”O’Connor (Bedford, Mass./Malden Catholic) pitched seven shutout innings in his first career start. He allowed three hits, walked three and struck out four. Peters (Orlando, Fla./Edgewater HS) pitched a spotless eighth inning before Rodriguez (Sarasota, Fla./State College of Florida) allowed two runs, one earned, in a rocky ninth.The Argos took an early lead when Aaron Haag (Andalusia, Ala./Southeastern Lousiana) drove in a run with a double to left-center field in the first. Chase Kiefer (Pensacola, Fla./Pensacola Catholic HS) extended the UWF lead to three when he drove in two runs with a triple to left center in the bottom of the second inning.Kiefer drove in two more in the seventh inning with single to left-center, and UWF added another run in the bottom of the eighth to take a 6-0 lead heading to the ninth.UWF will host West Georgia March 22-23 at Jim Spooner Field. The Argos play a doubleheader Saturday at 2 p.m. and a single game Sunday at 1 p.m.“It’s a big series at home,” Jeffcoat said. “We’ve got to continue to represent and defend the Spoon.”For information on all UWF athletics, visit #ARGOS#West Florida 6, North Georgia 2 (03/19/14 at Pensacola, FL)———————————————————————-North Georgia……. 000 000 002  –  2  5  0      (12-12)West Florida…….. 120 000 21X  –  6 12  1      (19-4)———————————————————————-Pitchers: North Georgia – Josh Bryan; Phillip Taylor(7); Trace McDaniel(7) and Eason Spivey.West Florida – Walker O’Connor; Kevin Peters(8); Dayan Rodriguez(9) and Garrett Flynn; Kyle Hamner.Win-Walker O’Connor(3-0)  Loss-Josh Bryan(0-1)  T-2:26  A-202Weather: Warm and sunnyPrint Friendly Versionlast_img read more

No. 18 West Florida men’s soccer falls to Florida Southern

first_img   PENSACOLA, Fla.  – The No. 18 University of West Florida men’s soccer team fell to Florida Southern College 3-1 in the final game of the Marriott SpringHill Suites Invitational. The Argonauts drop to 1-2 on the season and have now lost two games in-a-row for the first time since 2012. “I thought we played well for about 25 minutes after the lighting delay,” said head coach Bill Elliott. “We tried fighting back, it’s disappointing but hopefully we grow as a team and get better as the season goes.”In a game that was delayed midway through the first half due to inclement weather, the Argos allowed an early goal as the Mocs scored in the 11th minute. UWF came out of the lightning delay with new energy and would tie the game at one after a penalty kick by junior Pablo Paz (San Jose, Costa Rica/Virginia Commonwealth) in the 22nd minute.However, FSC would break the tie seconds before halftime after a penalty kick off their own, and would eventually add a third in the second half to seal the win for the Sunshine State Conference opponent. Both teams tallied 12 shots in the match and each team attempted four corner kicks in the 90 minutes, but FSC was the team to capitalize off of chances by scoring two goals from set pieces.West Florida will hit the road for the first time this season next weekend to continue non-conference play. The Argos will travel to take on Tampa on Sept. 19 and will then face No. 11 Saint Leo on Sept. 21.For information on all UWF athletics, visit                          Soccer Game Summary (Final)          2014 West Florida Men’s Soccer        Florida Southern vs #18 West Florida (9/14/14 at Pensacola, FL) Florida Southern (2-1-0) vs. West Florida (1-2-0) Date: 9/14/14       Attendance: 200 Weather: hot and sunny Goals by period       1  2  Tot ——————————- Florida Southern….  2  1 –  3 West Florida……..  1  0 –  1  SCORING SUMMARY:  1.  11:27 FSCM Mike Cortright (Edward Spansk;Mitchell Francois) – Corner kick  2.  21:58 UWF Pablo Paz Penalty kick  3.  44:31 FSCM Mitchell Francois Penalty kick  4.  68:10 FSCM Alexi Cortez (Alek Cosio) – pass to box, lifted over keepers head Shots: Florida Southern 12, West Florida 12 Saves: Florida Southern 5 (Cole Clingerman 5), West Florida 2 (Stuart McCrory 2)– —   Print Friendly Version Share UWF falls 3-1 final game of Marriott SpringHill Suites Invitational (Photo by Bill Stockland) center_img No. 18 West Florida men’s soccer falls to Florida Southernlast_img read more

Kuala Lumpur Major finds partner in Monster Energy

first_imgTournament organiser PGL Esports has welcomed Monster Energy as the official energy product sponsor of the Kuala Lumpur Major.The upcoming Major Dota 2 tournament takes place over November 9-18th, and will dish out a total of $1,000,000 (£760,300) and 15,000 DPC qualifying points for The International 9.This isn’t the first time the energy drinks brand has sponsored an event put together by PGL Esports. It was an official partner of the PGL Major Kraków – a $1,000,000 (£760,300) Counter-Strike: Global Offensive tournament – in 2017.Monster Energy is one in a long line of partners for the event. HyperX is the official peripheral sponsor, Intel and Predator are the official monitor & notebook sponsors, KFC is the official food partner, U Mobile is the official telco partner, Secretlab is the official chair partner, and Thermaltake is the official PC chassis partner.Monster Energy sponsors the likes of Mindfreak, Alliance, Team Liquid, Natus Vincere, Fnatic, Team Envy, paiN Gaming, Vici Gaming, and Evil Geniuses. It also sponsored PSG.LGD for the biggest event of 2018, The International 8.The Kuala Lumpur Major is the first Major tournament in the new DPC season, which has undergone a few changes from the previous season. There will be no more direct invitations to Majors or Minors, instead teams must book their spot in tournaments through qualifiers. Minors and Majors are now to be ran in pairs, too.Esports Insider says: Monster Energy sponsoring an event in the Southeast Asia region – one that will gather a lot of viewers due to it being the first Dota 2 Major of the season – sounds like a good idea. The details of the sponsorship haven’t been released however, so it’s hard to judge it entirely. If it’s merely a bog standard sponsorship with Monster’s logo slapped on-screen at random times, then this news isn’t anything to rave about.Subscribe to ESI on YouTubelast_img read more

Rocket Mortgage to sponsor LCS Summer Finals

first_imgRiot Games has announced Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans as the first presenting sponsor of the LCS Summer Finals.Taking place on August 24-25th, the finals will be hosted in the Little Caesars Arena, Detroit.Image credit: Riot GamesJay Farner, CEO of Quicken Loans discussed the venture: “We are doubling down on esports by supporting one of the biggest tournaments in the sport and bringing it to our hometown. The esports community strongly aligns with what we stand for as the nation’s largest FinTech lender– industry disruption and groundbreaking innovation. “This is the latest in a long history of big innovative events to connect with passionate fans – from the Quicken Loans Carrier Classic and the Billion Dollar Bracket to the Rocket Mortgage Homestretch Sweepstakes – so bringing one of the biggest esports events to Detroit is the exciting next step.”Rocket Mortgage by Quicken Loans is a prominent partner of 100 Thieves, the North American organisation founded by Matthew “Nadeshot” Haag in 2017. Dan Gilbert, the largest shareholder in 100 Thieves, is the founder of Quicken Loans.Chris “Chopper” Hopper, Head of Esports for North America at Riot Games also commented on the sponsorship: “We’re proud to partner with Rocket Mortgage as they become the first-ever presenting sponsor of the LCS Summer Finals. We always strive to bring League of Legends to new locations around the region and are excited to offer one of the top esports events in North America to the passionate fans in Detroit for the first time.”Esports Insider says: It’s interesting to see Quicken Loans branch out from 100 Thieves, marking its second involvement in the esports industry. We imagine this is the company testing the water in terms of return from events sponsorships and if it goes well then this probably won’t be the last we see of the company in this fashion.Follow ESI on Instagramlast_img read more

LAPD has interviewed a potential Harvey Weinstein sexual assault victim

first_imgGetty Images for NYFW: The Shows/Nicholas Hunt(LOS ANGELES) — The Los Angeles Police Department’s Robbery Homicide Division has interviewed a potential victim of a sexual assault involving Harvey Weinstein, which allegedly occurred in 2013, ABC News has confirmed.The case is under investigation.Earlier Thursday, New York Police Department Chief of Detectives Robert Boyce said that New York City police have referred allegations against the disgraced film mogul to other police departments, though it was not clear if the LAPD investigation pertained to one of those cases. The referrals were made to jurisdictions in the United States and overseas based on calls to a police hotline about Weinstein, Boyce added.Police declined to discuss specifics.“Several calls have been received on our CrimeStoppers Hotline regarding Mr. Weinstein,” Boyce said. “None of those calls have alleged any criminal conduct within the New York City area.”Complaints about Weinstein cannot be pursued locally if they involve events that occurred outside New York City.More than three dozen women have accused Weinstein of sexual misconduct, including harassment and assault, but he has not been charged with a crime.The movie producer has acknowledged inappropriate behavior, but has “unequivocally denied” any allegations of non-consensual sex, his spokesman said.Weinstein, 68, was terminated by The Weinstein Company in the wake of the allegations, though he later offered his resignation. ABC News confirmed that he is also pursuing a claim that he was wrongfully fired.In addition, he was expelled from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences, and the Producers Guild of America has voted to begin termination proceedings against him. A final determination will be reached next month. On Thursday the board of British Film Institute voted to strip Weinstein of its prestigious BFI Fellowship honor, which he was awarded in 2002.Copyright © 2017, ABC Radio.
