Prep football: Week 5 matchups a mixed bag

Prep football: Week 5 matchups a mixed bag

first_imgWeek 4 was another fairly successful one for Bossier Parish high school football teams.Parkway, Haughton, Benton and Plain Dealing all won. The Panthers (3-1) defeated Bastrop 55-28, Haughton (4-0) dropped Ruston 38-17, Benton (3-1) topped North DeSoto 7-0 and Plain Dealing (3-1) held off Logansport 30-23.Airline lost to West Monroe 27-14, but the Vikings went toe-to-toe with the No. 7 ranked team in Class 5A.Defending Class 3A state champion Union Parish was simply too much for Bossier, which fell 58-14.Looking ahead to Week 5, there are at least two mismatches on paper. Parkway hosts winless Booker T. Washington and Haughton hosts Class 1A St. Mary’s.Parkway should have little trouble with Booker T. Washington. Coach David Feaster may want to finetune some things before the Panthers open defense of their District 1-5A title a week from Thursday at home against Captain Shreve, but the Parkway reserves should see plenty of action.The Haughton-St. Mary’s game is a bit more intriguing. The Tigers are 4-0, but they haven’t played a team higher than Class 2A. They definitely haven’t faced a team as good on both sides of the ball as Haughton.The Bucs should be playing with a lot of confidence after the big win over Ruston. It shouldn’t be close.The week’s best game could take place in Monroe where Airline plays Neville. The Vikings showed they can play with the best in 5A. Now they get a chance to show they can play with the best in 4A.A good showing against Neville will help Airline’s confidence going into its District 1-5A opener against Byrd a week from Thursday. Of course, as Coach Bo Meeks has said, the Vikings need to have more than just a good showing against programs like West Monroe and Neville to move the program forward. They need wins.Benton is off to its best start since at least 2009. The Tigers will be looking for some revenge for last year’s loss to Woodlawn. Even though Woodlawn is 1-3, the Knights could pose the biggest challenge for the Tigers talented defense since Week 2 against Haughton.Woodlawn has been up and down on both sides of the ball, but the Knights have some gamebreakers that Benton will have to slow down. I expect the Tigers to do that and improve to 4-1.Plain Dealing will be trying for its third 4-1 start in four years under head coach a Coy Brotherton. Even though North Caddo (0-4) is a Class 2A team, the Lions will be favored.The Rebels have a new head coach in Chuck Dupree, a former Airline head coach. North Caddo has been soundly beaten in all four games this season.Plain Dealing won’t take the Rebels lightly, though. The Lions won last year and I look for them to come out on top again.Bossier hits the road Friday to play Block, the only team it beat last season. Like Bossier, Block (0-4) has struggled with injuries at the running back position. Even so, the Bears have managed to put up a lot of points, but they’ve also allowed a lot.Bossier has a chance to win this one, but the Bearkats will need to play better than they have so far this season.Russell Hedges is Sports Editor of the Bossier Press-Tribune.

Great final anticipated in Linden’s Guinness Greatest of the Streets grand finale

Great final anticipated in Linden’s Guinness Greatest of the Streets grand finale

first_imgIn less than three days, all roads will lead to the Mackenzie Market Tarmac, as a new champion will be crowned in the Guinness ‘Greatest of the Streets Linden Championship, when first time finalists High Rollers and Amazings battle for the title.  The youthful High Rollers unit secured a place in the grand finale, after overcoming titlist and traditional giant Silver Bullets in the semi-final round compliments of a 1-0 penalty shoot-out scoreline. This was the second of two unexpected victories for High Rollers on the night, as they bested a formidable Swag Entertainment side 2-1 in the earlier quarterfinal section. Their opponent, Amazings, recorded two dogged wins to secure their place in the championship match. A 2-1 penalty shoot-out semi-final victory was achieved against debutants Capital Storm.  It was the second of two penalty shoot-out wins for Amazings, who overcame crowd favourite Coomacka via an identical margin in the quarterfinal realm. According to a release from the tournament coordinators, “The anticipation is in the air for what promises to be a great final between two teams that are desperate to secure the coveted championship and the bragging rights for a region and right to represent the zone at the National Championship.” The release further said, “The fact that we have two first time finalists is an indication of the overall improvement in quality of the tournament. Neither of the teams was expected to challenge or formed part of the group of possible contenders when the tournament commenced so it is refreshing that a first time champion will be crowned. Even the third place match features a first time semi-finalist. “It also highlights that teams have been preparing better and want to etch their name on the trophy and put their respective communities on the map by securing the title. This occurrence will serve as an inspiration for the other teams and only bodes well for the continued improvement in quality of the tournament”, the release concluded.Meanwhile the third place playoff will pit former two time champion Silver Bullets against Capital Storm.last_img read more

Canadian XCO Championship for Nelson’s Travis Hauck

first_imgTravis Hauck of Nelson recently completed a marathon weekend on wheels by capturing the Master Expert 40-49 division at the 2018 Canadian XCO Championships in Canmore, AB.Hauck edged out Simon Dove of Alberta at the finish line to claim the title in one hour, 16:14 minutes.The Canmore venue is the site of the 1988 Olympic cross-country skiing events, with Kananaskis Country mountains leading into the Banff National Park providing a spectacular backdrop.The course was four kilometres in length, looping back into the main finish bowl area multiple times. Riders covered the course for five laps.Hauck travelled Friday to the Alberta City, getting into Canmore late in the evening. He was up early Saturday morning to eat and loosen up before the 9 a.m. race. Aroussen Laflamme Mont-Ste-Anne, Que., shocked Hauck a little after jumping out to the early lead. However, Hauck was able to overtake the Quebec rider, then held off Dove to capture the Canadian Championship by the narrowest of margins.Seventeen riders from all parts of Canada competed in the race, with three participants failing to finish.The Cross-country championships for men and women were held for categories ranging from Cadet (Under-17) through Junior (Under-19), Under-23, Elite and Masters on Saturday.Sunday, Team Relay event concluded the weekend.Of course Hauck could not achieve this great resuilt wiithout the help of a few friends — NRG Enterprises Ltd, Kootenay Mountain Biking, Stellar Heliskiing, Lyte Balance Electrolytes by SENSEable Supplements, Santa Cruz Bicycles, Baldface Lodge, Dancing Bear Inn, Oso Negro, The Sacred Ride, Gerick Cycle and Ski, Nelson Cycling Club, my beautiful wife Tobi Hauck and kids Caden and Hailey.After picking up his gold medal and posing with the rest of the Canadian Champions in a group photo, it was back in the car for Hauck, travelling back to Nelson for a family commitment.Not a bad weekend for the Nelson rider.

Cyprus on a roll with five medals in three days in Glasgow

Cyprus on a roll with five medals in three days in Glasgow

first_imgBy Andreas VouGEORGIOS Achilleos has won gold for Cyprus in the men’s skeet shooting, taking Cyprus’ medal count in the opening three days of the Commonwealth Games to five.Achilleos was the favourite going into the event and the former world champion showed his superiority, earning the top prize with four clays to spare. The 33-year-old’s gold comes less than 24 hours after Dimitris Minasidis earned Cyprus its first gold medal in weightlifting.The 25-year-old beat off all competition in the 62 kg class. A total lift of 276 kg was enough to secure gold for Minasidis who saw off the challenge of Sri Lanka’a Sudesh Peiris, who lifted 273 kg, while Samoa’s Vaipava Ioane took the bronze.Meanwhile, Themida Christodoulidou won the bronze medal in the individual rhythmic gymnastics competition on Saturday while fellow Cypriot Pantelitsa Theodoulou narrowly missed out on a medal, finishing in fourth place.On Thursday, 23-year-old Andreas Krassas won a silver medal in the under-66 kg judo class, winning four consecutive matches before eventually losing out in the final against world number seven Colin Oates. The silver medal won by Krassas makes it just the second that Cyprus has won in judo in the history of the 20 Commonwealth Games, after Christos Christodoulides’ silver in 2002 in Manchester.Another success for judo followed shortly after, as Robert Nicola finished in fifth place in the 81 kg category with two wins and two defeats.Nicola overcame the challenge of his first opponent, Kenya’s Joshuah Omondi, with ease but England’s Tom Reid proved too tough an opponent for the Cypriot, meaning that he just missed out on a medal. Nicola later spoke of his frustration at narrowly missing out on the podium, feeling that he could have beaten Reid but rued making a solitary error which ended up proving costly.“I could have beaten the Englishman. I made one mistake, but that’s Judo,” he said after the match. Elsewehre, Andri Eleftheriou, competing in the women’s skeet shooting, entered the semi-final with a ranking of 69/75, the second best out of the other five competitors. The 30-year-old went on to win the bronze medal, beating England’s Sarah Gray in the shoot-off with 13 out of 16 shots compared to her rival’s 12/16.last_img read more

Germany have one eye on the finals, Ireland one on Scotland

Germany have one eye on the finals, Ireland one on Scotland

first_imgBy Conor HumphriesWhile world champions Germany will be eager to seal their automatic qualification for Euro 2016 with a win on Thursday, Ireland will have one eye nervously cast on the progress of play-off rivals Scotland.Victory in Dublin would keep Germany on course to top Group D ahead of Poland although winger Lukas Podolski is doubtful for the match, and Sunday’s game against Georgia after picking up an ankle injury.However, Marco Reus is available after missing the last two qualifiers with a fractured toe.The Germans, like every other national team, have only had a short time to prepare and coach Joachim Loew said he had taken that into account in his planning.“The players at the moment are under a lot of strain and that is something we have considered, but I don’t want to start experimenting,” he said.Loew said he expected the Irish to be more aggressive than Scotland, who lost 3-2 to Germany in Glasgow last month.“Scotland were mainly concerned with not conceding a goal, The Irish will be attacking with even more courage. They have a lot of high quality players,” he said.An injury-hit Irish defence faces the daunting task of stopping Germany‘s frontline that includes in-form Thomas Mueller, who has scored eight goals in qualifying, and Mario Goetze, both of whom scored twice in their wins over Poland and Scotland last month.Captain John O’Shea, who scored a last minute equaliser when the sides met a year ago, will likely be partnered by the inexperienced Richard Keogh at the heart of defence with Marc Wilson and Ciaran Clark both doubtful. Midfielder Glenn Whelan is suspended.Ireland coach Martin O’Neill will mostly be keen to get on and talk about someone other than Jack Grealish, the Aston Villa midfielder who eventually chose to represent England over Ireland last week, a saga that has dominated Irish football for over a year.Ireland are four points clear of Scotland in the battle for a third place play-off spot and will not need a result against the group leading Germans or Poland if Scotland fail to get at least a draw at home to the Poles on Thursday and a win over lowly Gibraltar in their final game.“I wouldn’t have a concern at all about the play-offs,” O’Neill said.“Over two games I’d take my chances. If you were saying would I take the play-offs now, there’s no point in beating around the bush – yeah.”last_img read more
