The cold temperatures didn’t seem to affect Franklin County much as they came out of the gate in the first game of the Blackford Invitational about as hot as you possibly could on Saturday afternoon; however, it wasn’t enough as the Eastern Hancock Royals came back to defeat the Wildcats by a final score of 16-15.One bad defensive inning doomed the Wildcats as they committed 4 errors in the bottom of the 4th inning to allow the Royals to comeback from an 11-0 deficit to tie the game at 11. From there on out it was a back and forth competitive matchup as the teams exchanged the lead multiple times in the fifth, sixth, and seventh innings until the Royals ended the game in the bottom of the seventh on a walk-off RBI single by Kaylee Stewart.Michaela Ferman pitched the complete game for the Wildcats and unfortunately got stuck with the loss in this one after pitching well throughout. Ferman went 6 1/3 innings, scattering 12 hits, while giving up 16 runs (5 earned) and striking out 8 batters.In the game, the Wildcats out hit the Royals 15 to 12 in one of their best offensive efforts of the season.

Franklin County never looked back as they went on the defeat the Bruins by a final score of 17-4. Game temperature was around 50 degrees at first pitch, but as the game continued the rains steadily got harder and the wind gusts continued to blow, it felt more like late season football weather rather than softball weather.The Wildcats didn’t let the cold temperatures and rain affect their offense as they had 16 hits in the game and scored 17 runs in the victory. The only blemish on this game for the Wildcats were a few defensive lapses throughout the contest resulting in 3 errors.Camryn Brewer pitched excellent for the Wildcats in the circle to earn the victory.

Come out and support the seniors and the rest of your Wildcats in their final home game of the season!
With only 12 Open places across four courses – three at each venue – there was no margin for error for the 288 hopefuls. Higgins’ excuse was that he had taken all his clubs back to his car as he did not think he would need them again after posting a five-under 137 only to be called for a play-off. And while Higgins’ mistake might not have been as expensive as Woosnam’s mistake 12 years ago – that cost the Welshman second place and lost him £218,334 and a place in the Ryder Cup – but it was as damaging. Royal North Devon amateur Jimmy Mullen topped the qualifier at North Berwick after back-to-back 68s gave him a six-under total. It was not a good day for former Ryder Cup captain Colin Montgomerie either after blew his bid to return to The Open for the first time since 2009. The 50-year-old Scot carded a second-round 76, having been in contention after an opening 69, to finish three over and four adrift of qualification at Gullane. Amateurs Ben Stow, from Rushmore in Salisbury, and 2012 British Boys champion Matthew Fitzpatrick, from Hallamshire in Sheffield, went through with Sweden’s Oscar Floren. Reigning Scottish amateur champion Grant Forrest booked a maiden Open appearance at The Open as the 20-year-old, from Craigielaw less four miles from this year’s venue Muirfield but studying at San Diego University, carded rounds of 67 and 65 to post an eight-under aggregate of 132 at Dunbar. The other two to secure their Open places at Dunbar were Australian John Wade, who took a holiday to play in qualifying, and India’s Shiv Kapur, both one shot behind. Kent professional Steven Tiley ensured a third Open appearance in four years with some impressive scoring at The Musselburgh. A total of 13 birdies in 36 holes saw him finish nine under, three ahead of Scot Lloyd Saltman, winner of the Silver Medal for leading amateur in the 2005 Open at St Andrews, and High Wycombe 21-year-old Tyrell Hatton, who played his first Open at the Old Course three years ago, who both finished six under. A calamitous oversight by David Higgins ended the Irishman’s Open chances after he lost a play-off having discovered one club too many in his bag. Press Association In a scenario similar to Ian Woosnam at the 2001 Open at Royal Lytham and St Annes, the 40-year-old European Tour professional from Waterville realised he was carrying 15 clubs – one more than rules allow. The 40-year-old, whose has his fair share of bad luck in his career after breaking his left wrist and right elbow in a horseriding accident in 1997, incurred a two-stroke penalty and his two rivals Gareth Wright and George Murray progressed from Local Final Qualifying at North Berwick.
Newcastle plan to speak to a series of potential candidates for the vacant post of head coach once again as they attempt to move on swiftly from near-disaster. Managing director Lee Charnley, as he did following Alan Pardew’s departure for Crystal Palace in January, intends to hold informal talks with several men in order to gauge both what they have to offer and whether or not they could work within the prevailing system at St James’ Park. It is understood Patrick Vieira, head of Manchester City’s elite development squad, is among a small number of contenders with whom discussions will be held, with the name of long-term target Steve McClaren, now a free agent following his sacking by Derby, also on the list. Press Association Former Swansea boss Michael Laudrup too is available after his brief stint in the Middle East, and could be invited to share his thoughts on the position. However, it appears that John Carver, who took over from Pardew on an interim basis and suffered a tortuous second half of the season, has slipped in the pecking order after winning only three of his 19 Barclays Premier League games at the helm. The Magpies did much of the groundwork towards making an appointment at the turn of the year, but at that point, their preferred candidate was unavailable. They spoke to McClaren and Remi Garde, among others, at that stage, and the former England boss was offered the chance to return to the north-east, where he enjoyed a successful spell with Middlesbrough between 2001 and 2006. However, he opted to remain loyal to the Rams, and in turn, Newcastle decided to keep their powder dry until the end of the campaign. Little did they know how the remaining months of the season would unfold and McClaren was approached once again with three crucial games left and the club in dire need, with Derby’s promotion hopes having being dashed. Again, the answer was in the negative, but while that did not go down particularly well on Tyneside, the fact that he is now very much available – and perhaps significantly, there would be no compensation to pay – could prove attractive. Frenchman Vieira would be a very different candidate, one with no proven track record as a head coach, but with a glittering playing career behind him and the authority that brings, particularly among his compatriots, a sizeable number of whom are among the current Magpies’ squad. He is currently completing his coaching qualifications and would certainly be the kind of name to excite disgruntled fans. Charnle y is in no rush to make an appointment with the field having changed markedly since January, but with a big summer in the transfer market ahead of the club following owner Mike Ashley’s promise to invest in the squad, he cannot wait too long.
By Rajiv BisnauthSET 148 for victory, Upper Corentyne closed the penultimate day of their third round game against Lower Corentyne on 25-2 in the Jaguars Franchise League Three-day competition yesterday when play ended yesterday at the Port Mourant Cricket Club ground..Andy Mohan (8) and Arif Chan (0), will resume today with Upper Corentyne, still 123 runs behind.Earlier, Upper Corentyne were bowled out 41 minutes before lunch for 220, a first innings lead of 58 runs.Starting the day from their overnight 133-5, Chan and Shawn Pereira looked to get settled in and push their team towards Lower Corentyne first innings total of 162.They, however, started the day very cautiously, as Lower Corentyne continued their ploy of bowling tight and not giving away easy runs to the batsmen.The overnight pair eventually took the total to 140. But the inevitable finally happened as left-arm spinner Kassim Khan got the breakthrough by removing Chan for 21.Clinton Pestano joined Pereira, and he too was in some trouble against Khan. However, the pair wiped out the first innings deficit, but soon after Khan was again rewarded for bowling tight when he removed Pestano for 13.Pereira in company with Eon Hooper put together 32 runs for the seventh wicket, as the lead crossed the 50-mark.During that partnership there was momentum shift as Hooper brought out his attacking shots, hitting three sweetly timed boundaries during his valiant knock to remain unbeaten on 35.Pereira was dismissed by Sharaz Ramcharran for 27, while Keon Sinclair was removed by Devon Clements for three and Omesh Mathura was run out without scoring.Khan finished with 3-73, while pacer Nail Smith (2-21), Clements (2-19), Raun Johnson (1-45) and Ramcharran (1-30), were the other successful bowlers.The start of the third innings was superb for Upper Corentyne as Pestano (2-20) got opener Waheid Edwards in the first over, caught at first slip without scoring, at 5-1.Fellow opener Kandasammy Surujnarine and Jonathan Foo negotiated the remainder of play, and by lunch they have progressed to 22.After seeing off the period before the interval, the pair applied themselves. The duo kept picking ones and twos and the odd boundary when the opportunity was being presented.Surujnarine, especially, was quick to pounce on any width outside the offstump, be it the pacers of spinners.Lower Corentyne then lost Foo (40), and Gajanand Singh (10), in quick succession, off the bowling of Pestano and Eon Hooper.On the other hand, Surujnarine stood firm at the other end. However, after the interval Hooper made significant inroads, claiming four other wickets to finished with figures of 5-48. Surujnarine made 86 from 148 balls, with nine fours and a six, while spinner Mathura had 3-23.Meanwhile, score in the other three games are as follows:At Cumberland: West Demerara resuming on their overnight score of 276/5 reached 369/9 before declaring with a healthy lead of 338. Travis Persaud made 39, Kemol Savory score 28 and Rishi Looknauth contributing 22 not out. Reifer had earlier struck 119 and Akshaya Persaud made 73. Bowling for West Berbice, Brandon Bess returning to cricket after a long lay-off took 2/33, Javed Karim claimed 2/46 while Kevin Jawahir had 2/104.West Berbice in their second turn at the crease feared a little better than their first innings 30 with 114 all out. Kevin Jawahir scored 45.Bowling for West Demerara, Askhaya Persaud had 4/30 while Rishi Looknauth took 3/45. West Berbice lost by an innings and 124 runs inside 2 days.At Bourda: East Coast Demerara won the toss and chose to bat first. However, they could only muster 148 as off spinner Gajanan Suknanan bagged 7/37 bowling for Georgetown. Gavin Boodwah and Ramnarine Chatura top score with 40 apiece.Georgetown ended the day on 63/3. Robin Bachhus 18, Andrew Lyght 25 and Ovid Richardson 4 were the batsmen dismissed. Vivian Albert has so far taken 2/10.At Everest, no play was possible on day 2 because of a wet outfield.Play will continue today at GCC, Port Mourant and Everest.
Schmoldt says:I love sports and I like movies. Let’s just get that straight — I would much rather watch an actual game than pick up a movie any night of the week. That said, if I’m going to watch a movie, I’d like it to involve sports. I love “Caddyshack,” “Field of Dreams,” “Sandlot,” “Tin Cup,” “Slap Shot,” “Rudy” and, of course, “Hoosiers.” But in the case of Best Sports Movie Ever, I’m going to have to take “Major League.”With characters like Rick “Wild Thing” Vaughn, Willie Mays Hayes, Jake Taylor and Roger Dorn, how could you not love this cast of characters, especially as they took it to their awful owner who wanted them to do nothing but lose?But while the emergence of the Wild Thing and the “stick-it-to-the-man” and win the pennant Indians are both great stories — as is the twist when Vaughn sleeps with Dorn’s wife — there are two things that put this movie over the top in my — and much of Wisconsin’s — eyes.The first is the fact that in the movie, the Indians’ home stadium is County Stadium, formerly the home of the Brewers. With the stadium extinct thanks to the building of Miller Park, anytime this movie comes on, it allows us Wisconsinites to recall what I still believe was a great ballpark.The second thing that seals the deal is announcer Bob Uecker, the current Brewers’ radio announcer who plays Harry Doyle in the movie. It’s not hard to imagine him actually using a line like “The post-game show is brought to you by … Christ, I can’t find it. To hell with it.” Or how about when he asks his colorman Monte if he has anything to add. Upon finding out he’s got nothing he says “He’s not the best colorman in the league for nothing folks.”It’s got classic characters, playing in a classic stadium and playing games commentated by a classic announcer. No doubt, it’s a classic movie.McGrath says:When handing out my Oscar for best sporting picture, much deliberation was necessary, as the list of awesome athletic films is longer than Troy Polamlu’s mane. However one film stands above the rest, due to its incomparable contributions to today’s society: “Caddyshack.”The world is a much different and better place because of the Harold Ramis classic.It took fashion to a new level, on the strength of Rodney Dangerfield’s ahead-of-its-time wardrobe.It brought new awareness to environmental issues on golf course, such as the hazards of using dynamite on the links and the positive aspects of growing your own hybrid of grass. Also, children could learn at an early age as to why playing golf in a thunderstorm is a bad idea.The movie promotes world-wide awareness through Bill Murray’s in-depth description of Tibetan golf practices (like stiffing the caddy), and how the people from Mr. Wang’s country bury folk upright, to save room, because “Golf courses and cemeteries are the biggest waste of prime real estate.”Heck, there is even philosophical advice like “Gungala, gungala,” (straight from the Dalai Lama’s mouth himself!) and “be the ball.”And to respond to Schmoldt’s comment that Wisconsinites love “Major League,” what movie promotes the hatred of Gophers more than “Caddyshack” and what is more Wisconsin than hating Gophers?As an aside, my Oscar for best sporting actor would have to go to Shaq, not for his puffy garbed wizardry in “Kazaam,” or for his juvenile pratfalls in “Blue Chips,” but for his superhero work in “Steel.” In the movie, the Diesel had to make a free throw with a grenade to avoid being blown to smithereens (Kobe Bryant’s dream). And in an acting exposition not seen since Anthony Hopkin’s portrayal of Hannibal Lector, Shaq makes the suicide free throw.Like to see George Clooney pull that one off.
