We had a decent car count and track was smooth and fast. Overall, it was a good evening of racing.”The Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modified feature saw Tad Reutzel grab the early lead but a flat front right tire ended his night and Ricky Thornton Jr. took over the lead.Thornton’s time out front lasted only three laps as he dropped his drive shaft on the back straightway and Dustin Smith took over the lead. Once out in clean air, Smith was never challenged and cruised to the victory.Kelly Shryock finished second and Mike Jergens was third.Kevin Opheim took the lead early from his outside pole position in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature, never gave it up and held off a big challenge from Derek Green to win.Ben Schultz held the outside pole position in the 24-car Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature and once the green flag flew, Schultze dominated.The 21-car IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock feature went green, white, checkered as Chanse Hollatz grabbed the lead early and went on to the victory after starting inside row two.Jay DeVries drew the pole for the Mach-1 Sport Compact feature and held that for the entire race.
Facebook Twitter Google+ When the puck fell to defender Shelby Calof at the top of the circle, Syracuse forward Victoria Klimek was fighting for positioning in front of the net. As Calof unleashed a wrist shot, Klimek stood directly between the shot and net – tipping the puck downward. The puck bounced along the ice as Cornell goalie Lindsay Browning, sprawling in the crease, could only watch it trickle past the goal line. “My first instinct is to get to the front of the net,” Klimek said to a reporter after the first period. “I’m glad [Shelby] shot it.”Klimek’s goal tied the game at one and represented the fourth consecutive game she tallied a point, as well as only the fourth goal allowed by Cornell’s starting goalie. But it was all the Orange would get.Syracuse (3-11-1, 2-1-1 College Hockey America) went on to fall 4-1 to No. 3 Cornell (8-0-1, 5-0-1 Eastern College Athletic), who have now beaten the Orange in 13 of their last 14 meetings. The Orange came out of the first period with a 1-1 tie game, but as the game wore on, the Big Red showed why they are the only undefeated team in the nation.With 7:37 remaining in the first period, Cornell’s Amy Curlew fought off Syracuse defender Jessica DiGirolamo at the blue line and came in on goal alone. Deking from backhand to forehand, Curlew, who averaged 1.25 points per game coming into the night, was met only by Ady Cohen’s outstretched pad.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter missing three weeks with injury, this was Cohen’s first start since Nov. 2, when she and the Orange shutout RIT 3-0. Cohen joined Syracuse at practice last Tuesday but did not get either of the starts against Penn State last weekend. Just 3:36 into the second period, Cornell came in on a three-on-one, but after one too many passes was unable to get a shot off. The Big Red collected the puck and began firing on Cohen, but, one at a time, the Orange goalie turned the pucks away.With under two minutes left in the second period, Cornell’s top line finally broke through. Kristin O’Neill took a pass from Curlew just below the Syracuse circle. O’Neill took one step in and fired a wrist shot far side and high on Cohen to extend Cornell’s lead.Cornell added another early in the third to put itself up by three. As the period ticked away, and the Orange had yet to get one back, SU head coach Paul Flanagan decided to the pull his goalie.As Cohen skated to the bench for the extra attacker, the team in front of her turned over the puck. With Cohen still not fully off the ice, the Big Red crossed the blue line with only one defender – and no goalie – to beat, quickly depositing the puck into the open net to stretch their lead to 4-1.

Legacy Eastern European gambling operator, Olympic Entertainment Group (OEG) begins a new chapter as a private enterprise.Last Friday, OEG governance completed the firm’s delisting from the Tallinn Nasdaq Exchange, as private equity firm Odyssey Europe completed its €290 million outright takeover of OEG, a transaction first announced on 19 March 2018.Prior to the company hosting its ‘extraordinary general meeting’ on 10 September, OEG’s majority investors Armin Karu (45% – Hansa Assets) and Jaan Korpusov (18% – Hendaya Investments) had agreed to the takeover terms.Odyssey Europe is the special purpose vehicle of Luxembourg-based private equity firm Novalpina Capital, a specialist in Eastern European enterprise investments.OEG maintains the biggest casino and sportsbook presence within the markets of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania. Furthermore, in recent years OEG has expanded its services for the markets of Slovakia, Malta and Italy.Nevertheless, OEG’s expansion strategy has been hindered by stringent changes to gambling regulatory conditions within a number of Eastern European jurisdictions, as the company withdrew its operations from Poland and Belarus in 2017.

A push on Donegal team doctor Kevin Moran by Armagh’s Aidan Findon resulted in a heated radio debate between Joe Brolly and Des Cahill.Dr Kevin Moran – pushed to the ground by Armagh player.The encounter after nine minutes in today’s All-Ireland quarter-final with a the row lasting nearly two minutes.Armagh’s Aaron Findon received a yellow card after the incident during which Dr Moran fell to the ground. The row occurred on popular RTE Radio One programme ‘Saturday Sport’, which was hosted by Cahill and Joanne Cantwell.Former Mayo GAA player Kevin McStay was also in the studio.While talking about the incident, Brolly told Cahill he believed he was “overblowing” the incident.“Doctors do not get thrown to the ground,” Cahill told Brolly. Brolly mentioned a recent boxing match RTE had covered – although he didn’t specify which match it was.But the RTE host said it had nothing to do with boxing and asked Brolly if he was saying it was okay for a doctor to get thrown onto the ground.“I remember one of the most brutal boxing fights I had ever seen in my life and you guys were lionising it and saying it was magnificent… that it was an example of tremendous courage.“Both boxers knocked each other out,” Brolly said.Des interjected saying it had nothing to do with the incident during the match. “That was boxing. That was boxing. This is a team sport when a doctor came on…”Brolly then replied: “I just think you are making too much of it Des… You know this is not… this is not a kiddie story.“I’m not allowing you trivialising it… that’s all I’m saying,” Cahill said.McStay then said he didn’t agree with Brolly’s viewpoint. “You have to a travel to a lot of other sports to see the medical staff being thrown to the floor,” McStay, who is a columnist with the Herald, said.“We’re an amateur sport. I can’t agree with you Joe.”Brolly then said: “If you put your head in the lion’s mouth, you shouldn’t sort of waggle it about you know.“I think you’re just overblowing the whole thing … it’s not the end of the world,” Brolly concluded.“I’d say in 30 years and more, in playing it and watching it, I’ve never seen a doctor tending another player, club or county level, being pulled out and pushed to the floor,” McStay added.BROLLY AND CAHILL IN HEATED ROW OVER PUSH ON DONEGAL TEAM DOCTOR was last modified: August 9th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Croke ParkDes CahillDR KEVIN MORAMJOE BROLLYpushRTE
