Nourse nabs Boone Hobby Stock win

first_imgBOONE, Iowa (July 2) – Boone Speedway saw a nice crowd on hand for its weekly show on Saturday night.Mike Van Genderen matched his win from last week in the Xtreme Motor Sports IMCA Modifieds, Donavon Smith returned to the winner’s circle in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Cars, Jake McBirnie got his second feature in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMods and Korbin Nourse was a first-time IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock winner.Nourse grabbed the lead from his outside front row start as soon as the green flag dropped, and threw off the challenges of any competitors on his way to victory. Jordan Peters took second, Dustin Graham third and Eric Stanton was a close fourth.Last week’s winner, Daniel Tasler, led the troops in the opening laps of the Northern SportMod main event. However, it didn’t take long for the eighth starting McBirnie to run him down and take command at lap six.From there on, McBirnie kept hold of that top spot, all the way to the checkers and the win. Johnathon Logue came from ninth starting to finish as the runner-up.  Tasler finished third, Cory Pestotnik was fourth and Andy Tiernan completed the top five.It was an excellent 20-lap Modified feature with the winner determined at the finish line.  The early portion of the race was led by Bob Daniels. Daniels had his hands full holding back Josh Truman when a caution flew at lap eight.When action got back underway, it was Van Genderen getting the jump on Truman and taking over second place. Just past the halfway mark, Van Genderen surged past Daniels to take over the top spot. Truman and Jimmy Gustin followed him to run second and third, respectively.The final laps were a constant battle between Van Genderen, Gustin and Truman. Gustin slipped into second place with just a handful of laps remaining and continued to torment Van Genderen. Gustin searched for a way around the leader, gave it a last second push as the two came out of corner four looking at the checkers but was unable to make the pass.Van Genderen took the win over Gustin, who had to settle for the runner-up spot. Truman held on for a third place finish, Tony Cox was fourth and John Logue came from starting 15th to finish fifth.Tyler Pickett took the lead at lap four and was no doubt looking to match last week’s visit to the Stock Car victory lane. Meanwhile, Donavon Smith had begun his methodical march to the front, and slipped into second by lap eight.Pickett held off Smith’s advances until lap 12. From there on, Smith kept the lead to the finish, scoring his fifth win of the regular season. Josh Daniels finished second, third went to Jay Schmidt, who both got under fourth place Pickett when he pushed up the track on the final lap, and Ben Walding was fifth.last_img read more

Standring takes any, all measures to get on field

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoIn these days, a fifth-year senior at a Big Ten school is a rarity. The leadership and knowledge of these individuals can offer much to the underclassmen on the team. Both on and off the field No. 97, Paul Standring, is able to bring this experience to a relatively young team.After suffering from an injury last season, Standring is proving his versatility this year by straying from his designated punter position.”I want to get out on the field,” Standring said. “It’s my last year. I’m just trying to give it my best shot.”So far, he has been doing just that.Participating as a special teamer in six games to date, Standring has recorded five tackles.Standring, much like the rest of the Badger fans is “hoping to get back on that winning streak” when the team returns home to Camp Randall Stadium to face Northern Illinois this Saturday.”On the sidelines [at home], the atmosphere is crazy,” Standring said. “But when I’m out there during the middle of the play, I try and block out everything and do the task of the play.”Five years ago, Standring came to Wisconsin as an all-state athlete. His broad athletic ability is clear with just a glance at his high school résumé.Playing on both sides of the ball as a quarterback, defensive back, kicker and punter, it’s hardly a surprise he was once voted USA Today National Player of the Week in 2001.Football has been a part of Standring’s life since he was a little kid. His father was a punter at Notre Dame and his uncles played at Miami and Illinois. On top of that, his brother was a punter at Northwestern.”I played other positions in high school, but my brother played in the Big Ten as well,” Standring said. “He said I had the potential to punt at a Big Ten school like this.”Although college football has always been part of his life, he still enjoys their support at games.”It was nice to have my family there,” Standring said in reference to The Citadel game this season when he recorded a career-high two tackles.By playing different positions throughout this season, Standring has been able to fully understand the power of special teams.”The other guys [on special teams], they’re a great help,” Standring said. “When I first started out I could tell.””It’s funny that I’m going to be on the punt unit and not even be the punter,” added Standring. “Everyone’s been real great about it. They’re excited for me to get out there, too.”After the past two difficult games on the road, Standring, along with the rest of the special teams, have been practicing hard to change the pace of this next game.”The special teams are working hard in practice,” starting kicker Taylor Mehlhaff said. “We need to be big on field position, whether it’s on punting or kickoffs. We need to take advantage when we have the chance.””During practice it feels like we have more energy,” Standring said. “There is more hitting going on. People are getting angrier. We need to improve each day.”In the game this Saturday against Northern Illinois, Standring is sure to be seen helping out special teams across the board. He will be starting on kickoff, kick return and punt return.Northern Illinois is a huge game this Saturday. Coming off two losses, the Badgers are anxious to play at Camp Randall.”We’d love to get a win,” starting punter Ken DeBauche said. “That’s our one goal, the most important goal.””We need to put a game together where our offense, defense and special teams are able to excel,” DeBauche added.”All three of us are always trying to push each other,” Standring said in reference to DeBauche and Mehlhaff. “It’s usually something little because we’ve been around punting so much. We always try and help each other out.”last_img read more

Tottenham make history as they fail to sign anyone in the transfer window

first_img 1 gameday REVEALED How the Premier League table could change after the Boxing Day fixtures Latest Premier League News Mauricio Pochettino has endured a frustrating summer in the transfer window Tottenham predicted XI to face Brighton with Mourinho expected to make big changes NEW ERA possible standings How Chelsea could line up against Southampton – what system will Lampard play? silverware ALTERED center_img England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won smart causal How Arsenal could line up in Arteta’s first official game in charge – Ozil return? “It’s not about adding because it’s fashionable to sign players. It’s about if you really need them or not and then if you can get your target or not.“It’s true our targets are always the same level as Manchester United, Manchester City or Real Madrid but for different circumstances we can’t achieve that.“I am not worried, I am not sad, I am so happy. To keep our best players was our objective and goal and we have achieved that – at the moment, we will see what happens in the next 20 days in Europe.“If you can’t add a player that can improve your squad, the most important thing is to make sure you do not lose your best players and I think that was a great job from the club to keep the best players and the manager.”Pochettino does accept how the lack of activity might be viewed externally, but is happy with the club’s vision.“Of course it’s difficult to understand for people in football that Tottenham didn’t sign or sell players, but sometimes in football you need to behave differently,” he said.“If we are happy with our squad and cannot improve our squad, sometimes it’s better to keep our squad together.“There’s no reason to not trust in our squad and no reason not to believe in our club or believe in what we can do.“The most important thing is we’re so positive and of course we’re going to challenge for big things this season too.” Every current Premier League club’s best kit from the past decade Tottenham have made history – becoming the first Premier League club not to make a summer signing since the transfer window’s inception in 2003.Mauricio Pochettino failed to to add to his squad in the close season, with a deal for Jack Grealish failing to materialise on deadline day. Their failure to bring anyone in is the first time a Premier League club has not made a signing in the 15 years of the summer transfer window.It is at odds with boss Pochettino’s perceived wish, where he challenged the club to be “brave and take risks” at the end of last season.The tonic to that lack of transfer activity is that Spurs have been able to keep all of their top stars, with a number of them tied down to new deals.The window remains open to European clubs until the end of August, so there is still the possibility of players going out even after the English deadline passes.Toby Alderweireld, Danny Rose and Mousa Dembele could still leave in the next few weeks, but Pochettino has been able to keep hold of the likes of Harry Kane, Christian Eriksen and Kieran Trippier.Alderweireld was heavily linked with a move to Manchester United but firm interest never materialised.“We have a very good squad, with very good players and it is very difficult to add players to that,” Pochettino added.“We didn’t sell players and with 25 players in the squad it is difficult to add players. possible xi Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?
