Quick thinking crew, dominant car help King rule Kent Lewis Classic

first_imgWilliam Reed, Trey Burke and Jacob Harris completed the top five.  The win came in King’s first start of the season and more than made up for his 18th place showing in the 2019 classic.  King led all 25 laps of the Southern United Sprints opener and seventh annual classic, with a bungee cord used to keep his IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car in gear. Defending race winner Trey Schmidt was second. CLEVELAND, Texas (June 6) – Quick-thinking by his crew and a dominant car made Daniel King a two-time Kent Lewis Classic feature winner Saturday night at 105 Speedway.  “It feels fantastic, with Kent being my mentor and the guy who got me into a Sprint Car,” said King, also winner of the inaugural event. “It’s special to win this race, especially twice.”  King plans to display both Kent Lewis Classic trophies side-by-side at his shop. The nine-year veteran of the division chases a career fourth series championship this season. Also battling brake issues, King was smooth on the high side and ran much of the way in lapped traffic. The final caution came with five circuits to go and he was catching the back of the field at the checkers. center_img “I knew they were right there behind me but we had a super downright dominant car,” King said.  Feature results – 1. Daniel King; 2. Trey Schmidt; 3. William Reed; 4. Trey Burke; 5. Jacob Har­ris; 6. Rod Craddock; 7. Caleb Padgett; 8. J.J. Whitworth; 9. Kent Lewis Sr.; 10. Theresa Waller; 11. Tyler Harris; 12.

Daniel King won the Kent Lewis Classic for the second time, topping the 2020 Southern United Sprint season-opening event at 105 Speedway.

We got our original Triple X Chassis back and got back to more consistent times,” he explained.last_img read more

ICC World Cup ICC Cricket World Cup 2019: South Africa register first win with crushing win over Afghanistan

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, ICC World Cup News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. New Delhi: Afghanistan were putting up a good fight in the initial phases of the ICC Cricket World Cup clash against South Africa in Cardiff on Saturday. However, a disastrous collapse of 6/21 in the middle overs, primarily due to Chris Morris’ 3/13 and Imran Tahir’s 4/29 saw Afghanistan lose their way. A total of 125 was never going to challenge the Proteas and a solid 68 from Quinton de Kock ensured South Africa had registered their first win in the tournament in emphatic fashion as they finally got going. For Afghanistan, it was yet again a case of making a bright start but losing their way completely towards the end. With so much of rain in the last couple of days, South Africa had no hesitation in bowling after they won the toss. However, much to their surprise, the Afghanistan openers put up a solid display against the pace of Kagiso Rabada and Beuran Hendricks. Hazratullah Zazai and Noor Ali Zadran scored at a strike-rate of over 100 before a short rain break broke their momentum. Following the rain delay, Rabada got rid of Zazai and Rahmat Shah’s struggles ended when he was trapped in front by Morris for a 22-ball six. Noor Ali held firm before the second rain delay, which lasted for an hour, resulted in the game being curtailed to 48 overs. However, this time the rain had a massive impact on Afghanistan’s progress as they collapsed sensationally. Immediately after the resumption, Andile Phehlukwayo got rid of Hashmatullah Shahidi while Imran Tahir struck twice, removing Noor Ali Zadran for 32 and Asghar Afghan for 0. Phehlukwayo struck again by removing Mohammad Nabi and when Tahir sent back skipper Gulbadin Naib, Afghanistan were in real danger of not reaching 100. However, Rashid Khan’s entertaining cameo ensured Afghanistan could at least get past three figures.  Rashid got going with two boundaries off Rabada and he regularly found the boundaries as Afghanistan aimed to get past 150. After hitting two more fours off Tahir, Rashid perished for 35 off 25 balls and Morris wrapped up the tail to bowl Afghanistan out for 125. In response, Hashim Amla and Quinton de Kock started slowly as they looked to negotiate the early swing and bounce on offer with the new ball. After negotiating the first powerplay in which only 35 runs were scored in the first 10 overs, Amla and de Kock opened up and played more aggressively. De Kock reached his fifty with a couple of fours off Rashid while Amla also looked in solid touch. Although Naib got the wicket of de Kock for 68, it did little to derail South Africa as they coasted to victory and register an emphatic win in a crucial stage of the tournament. highlightscenter_img South Africa registered their first win of ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.Imran Tahir took four wickets for South Africa.Afghanistan has lost all matches in the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019.last_img read more

Syracuse cruises past Princeton 92-61

first_imgGabrielle Cooper yelled and clapped her hands toward the SU bench. After the Orange put themselves up by 29, Cooper’s outstretched arms forced a Princeton throwaway and another chance to push ahead. A day prior, Syracuse needed runs to recover from bouts with inefficiency. Friday, Syracuse never slowed.Syracuse (5-1) dominated Princeton (1-5), 92-61, in its second game of the Cancun Challenge. The Orange’s hot-shooting helped its cruise to the program’s highest point total since last season’s 95-68 domination of Niagara in the season-opener. Four SU players finished in double-figures led by Gabrielle Cooper, who had a season-high 20 points on 7-11 shooting in the game.“We got some clean, stand-still 3’s,” SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said to SU Athletics after the game. “That’s what we’re trying to get.”After a game when Syracuse tallied 21 turnovers that slowed its offensive production, Syracuse turned the ball over 20 times against the Tigers, including a team-high seven from freshman forward Emily Engstler. But the turnovers seemingly had little effect on SU, who forced 11 turnovers of its own and dominated Princeton in transition. Tiana Mangakahia, who said she has worked on limiting her turnovers from a season ago, didn’t turn the ball over once.Syracuse was dominant early and often in the game. Late in the first quarter, the Orange flashed its two-guard lineup that SU head coach Quentin Hillsman said after Syracuse’s season-opening win over North Dakota that the Orange would turn to often. It led to quick drives and strong pushes up the court. SU pushed the pace, and Princeton couldn’t keep up. In the first quarter, Mangakahia flew by hardly any defense for a lay-in to make it a 19-point lead.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThough the Tigers kept themselves in the game briefly with timely makes from beyond the arc, Syracuse’s well-rounded play pushed its lead further. SU shot 54 percent from 3-point range in the first half and once again was steadied by Cooper, who made three of her four shots from distance. On the inside, the Orange play allowed Syracuse to keep firing from distance as it kept a grasp of the rebounding game and cleaned up SU’s misses.“We got a lot of pieces at the basket that really allowed us to kick it out and shoot 3’s,” Hillsman said.With 1:13 remaining in the first quarter, a Princeton offensive player drove in on Mangakahia, who held her hands straight up and held her ground, but she was called for her second foul, forcing her to take a seat on the bench and forcing SU to abandon its powerful two-point guard attack. So, Kiara Lewis led the Orange offense. On one play, Lewis drove into the right block and put the ball through her legs and spun to the outside before she layed the ball into the hoop. A few plays later, she picked up her dribble at the top of the key and, when the defender sagged off her, she rose up and fired a 3-pointer that put SU up by 18 points. She went 3-3 in the first half playing in relief of Mangakahia and was a perfect 4-4 overall, finishing with 10 points.Cooper continued her barrage from beyond the arc in the second half as SU guards led the scoring charge. When Cooper was guarded out the top, she went inside and scored a lay-in on her only attempt from inside the 3-point arc.The Orange lost Kadiatou Sissoko to an injury in the first quarter after she tweaked her knee attempting a trap on an SU press. When the Princeton player cut, Sissoko made a quick twitch to her left and immediately took pressure off her right knee, hopped to the floor and lay flat on her face as SU officials tended to her. She stayed on the ground for two minutes before being carried off the court by SU assistants Adneyei Amadou and Cedric Solace and was seen with an ice pack on her right knee.Hillsman said Sissoko was “moving well” and putting pressure on her knee after the game. When asked if she would play in Saturday’s game against DePaul, Hillsman said “don’t know and probably not.”“It was that kind of injury where probably you want to get her home and get her checked out before we start playing her,” Hillsman said.Syracuse is back in action again 1:30 p.m. Saturday against DePaul in the finale of the Cancun Challenge.
