BOONE, Iowa (Sept. 12) – The seventh time was a charm as Ricky Thornton Jr. put another check on his IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s bucket list Saturday night.

(Photo by Nick Woolley) He becomes the fifth driver to complete the Super Nationals Modified triple crown, having previously won both the main event and the Harris Auto Racing Race of Champions. Much accomplished at Boone Speedway himself, Aikey took off again and led Thornton and defending race winner Joel Rust into traffic by midway. Aikey rocketed from sixth starting to the front on the initial green flag, following the high side of the track and scored ahead of Mitchell Hunt and Thornton, who’d started 10th, following the only caution of the contest on lap two. Nineteenth starting Jason Wolla, 16th starting Tim Ward and Ethan Dotson rounded out the top five. Now the two-time and defending Late Model champion, he’s already qualified for Sunday’s Modified and Stock Car main events. Feature results – 1. Ricky Thornton Jr., Adel; 2. Jeff Aikey, Cedar Falls; 3. Jason Wolla, Ray, N.D.; 4. Tim Ward, Chandler, Ariz.; 5. Ethan Dotson, Bakersfield, Calif.; 6. Todd Shute, Norwalk; 7. Richie Gustin, Gilman; 8. Chris Elliott, Abilene, Texas; 9. Joel Rust, Grundy Center; 10. Mitchell Hunt, Kent City, Mich.; 11. Kelly Shryock, Fertile; 12. Tom Berry, Des Moines; 13. Jay Noteboom, Hinton; 14. A.J. Ward, Ionia, Mich.; 15. Clay Money, Penokee, Kan.; 16. Zane DeVilbiss, Farmington, N.M.; 17. Brandon Beckendorf, Danube, Minn.; 18. David Goode Jr., Copperas Cove, Texas; 19. Steven Bowers Jr., Topeka, Kan.; 20. Chris Abelson, Sioux City; 21. Tanner Black, Otis, Kan.; 22. Jeff Taylor, Cave City, Ark.; 23. Jeff Larson, Freeport, Ill.; 24. William Gould, Calera, Okla.; 25. Kyle Brown, Madrid; 26. Trever Sloan, Lake Odessa, Mich.; 27. Jesse Sobbing, Malvern; 28. Kelsie Foley, Tucson, Ariz.; 29. Cayden Carter, Oskaloosa. Making his career seventh start in the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational, Thornton chased down Jeff Aikey in traffic, leading the last eight times around the track in taking a fast-paced IMCA Modified feature. Twenty-eight drivers were elected to the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational field, which was filled by the top driver in national point standings and the top driver in 40-point feature wins competing at Super Nationals. The win paid $1,675. Thornton previously posted a race career best third place finish in 2016 and was already a candidate for next year’s Invitational. Thornton cut into Aikey’s lead and finally slipped past when the leader was slowed by a lapped car, then sped to the checkers.

The 21-year-old, who played in defence for second tier side Remo Stars, was knocked down and killed in an apparent hit and run, but his club alleged that he was a victim of police brutality. Attended by his family, friends and teammates, Tiamiyu was tucked in the traditional white shroud (kaftan) used to wrap bodies and buried in line with Islamic burial custom. “We lit up Kazeem Tiyamiyu (Kaka)’s path to Al-Jannah yesterday night and he was buried today at his family house in Ajaka, Sagamu, Ogun State,” Remo Stars announced. Midfielder Toyeeb Gidado paid tribute to his teammate and described him as a “great person”. “It’s sad to say goodbye to someone you play alongside, a great person because this could’ve been anyone of us,” Gidado told BBC Sport. The club’s President, Kunle Soname, and the Nigeria Football Federation boss, Amaju Pinnick, paid a condolence visit to the family this week. The circumstances surrounding Tiamiyu’s death have been widely condemned across the country as it reportedly happened while he was in a vehicle being detained by the Special Anti-Robbery Squad of the Nigeria Police. It led to a protest march – demanding justice and for SARS to be disbanded – by thousands of residents in Sagamu, which is about 50km north-east of the commercial capital, Lagos. At least three people were reported to have died during the protest march, with police saying that they are “still investigating” these claims. “No father wants to bury his son and this is heartbreaking for my family because Kazeem was on the verge of travelling to Europe for trial,” Fasasi, the father of the late footballer told BBC Sport. “What happened, why was he killed and how does a family recover from this. These are the questions no one can answer.”Tags: Kazeem TiamiyuRemo StarsToyeeb Gidado
Stadler had seen his four-shot overnight lead disappear with a front nine of 41, but had battled back well with birdies on the 14th and 16th to pull within one of McDowell, who then carded his only bogey of the day on the 18th after finding heavy rough off the tee. That left Stadler needing two pars to force extra holes but after holding his nerve on the 17th, the world number 62 missed his second tap-in of the day to gift McDowell a 10th European Tour title. McDowell shrugged off the miserable conditions to retain his Alstom Open de France title, carding a closing 67 at Le Golf National, the joint-lowest round on a wet and windy day. But the former US Open champion also had plenty of help from American Kevin Stadler, who missed from two feet for par on the 18th to force a sudden death play-off. Press Association Graeme McDowell produced a brilliant final round to overturn an eight-shot deficit and successfully defend a tournament for the first time in his career on Sunday.
The No. 1 USC men’s volleyball team is looking to improve to 7-0 for the first time since 1991 against the No. 11 Pepperdine Waves.The Trojans (6-0, 6-0) appear energized and focused coming off of a weeklong break.Youth · 6-foot-5 sophomore outside hitter Maddison McKibben has provided a lift for USC and looks to become the team’s full-time starter. – Brandon Hui | Daily Trojan “It’s good that we got the tough road matches behind us,” said USC Volleyball Coach Bill Ferguson said. “We’re able to focus on ‘we’ instead of ‘them’ now. We can lift and train more so we get stronger as the season progresses rather than deteriorating, as well as get more guys more time on the court in practice.”Senior opposite hitter Murphy Troy was also named AVCA Player of the Week for the second consecutive week.“I don’t think much about it,” Troy said. “I’m surprised I got it again, especially with the rest of the guys playing so well.”Troy needs only eight more kills to break the USC rally scoring record for career kills.The Trojans have been impressive during the first leg of the season, dropping a total of two sets in the first six matches.“I’m very pleased with our work ethic, attitude and maturity during this season,” Ferguson said. “And it all starts with their ‘we is greater than me’ attitude. The guys have been practicing that every day.”The Trojans have been dominating their opponents both on offense and defense.The Trojans are hitting at a .404 clip collectively, while opponents have only managed to kill at a .192 rate.“We’ve been running a much faster offense this year as opposed to last year,” Troy said. “And it’s because the middles are so efficient that for us hitting on the outside, we only have to deal with one defender.”The Trojans are also leading the conference in digs by a two-dig-per-set margin.“We won’t wow teams with our blocking, but what’s more important is that we’re digging great,” Ferguson said. “We’re at 10-and-some-change per set and the next highest is at around eight.”Pepperdine (3-5, 1-5), on the other hand, has been struggling as of late, losing two matches at the hands of UCLA and at UC Santa Barbara, and in five-set matches to Long Beach State, Cal State Northridge and UC Irvine.The Waves feature four starting hitters that measure in at over 6-foot-7 including team kill leader Maurice Torres.“Pepperdine is a big, physical team,” Ferguson said. “If they can find a way to match up with our hitters, it’ll be interesting.”Despite Pepperdine’s size, senior outside hitter Riley McKibbin has looked to a vital advantage that the Trojans have shown as the season has progressed.“Our unity is our biggest strength,” McKibbin said. “This is the most cohesive group I’ve played with in my career here. We’re really playing for each other out there.”
The No. 7 USC women’s volleyball team did not enter this weekend’s games at the Galen Center simply to win — it wanted to make a statement. A Friday night matchup against a No. 1 Washington team that was responsible for one of USC’s three losses was apparently the perfect opportunity for redemption.Supporting · Junior outside hitter Sara Shaw, who ranks third on USC’s team with 234 kills, delivered 15 kills against Washington at a .128 clip. – Austin Vogel | Daily TrojanThe Women of Troy played arguably their most thrilling game of the season Friday, knocking down the Huskies in five grueling sets before a sweep of the Washington State Cougars on Saturday night. The victories boost No. 7 USC’s record to 21-3 overall and 9-3 in Pac-12 play.“Just to win these games is extremely good,” USC coach Mick Haley said. “We wanted to get better as a team, and I think we accomplished that. We also got our confidence up to a pretty good level.”Though the Cougars gave their all Saturday night, they simply couldn’t match up with the Women of Troy, who recorded their 15th sweep of the season with a 25-13, 25-17, 25-18 victory. They were particularly dominant in the first set, as the Women of Troy built an insurmountable 21-9 lead before freshman middle blocker Alicia Ogoms knocked down consecutive kills to seal the set.The second set was a similar story, as Shaw recorded a kill to put USC up 19-9. The Cougars rebounded to make it close, but Young notched consecutive kills before an attack error gave the Women of Troy the set. The hosts put on a hitting clinic, attacking at a .600 clip in the opening frame before hitting .316 in the middle set.The final set was much tighter, as the Cougars rebounded from a 15-8 hole to come to within 16-15. The Women of Troy, however, went on a 6-1 run, highlighted by three alternating Shaw kills, the last of which sealed the match for the Women of Troy.“We played a lot of people, and we got to practice the game situations and be successful,” Haley said. “I felt like we had a successful weekend after practicing to our strengths.”Against the Huskies, the Women of Troy were once again paced by freshman outside hitter Samantha Bricio, who took advantage of the five-set match by registering a career-high 30 kills and 12 digs to help take out the Huskies. Throughout both games, though, junior outside hitter Sara Shaw rose to center stage. After recording 15 kills and a career high 30 digs against Washington, she posted a career-high 18 kills against the Cougars, notching a .643 hitting percentage with no errors.“The Washington match was definitely a tough one for us, but I think it was a good five games,” Shaw said. “Coming back to win that match definitely boosted our confidence.”Against the Huskies, the Women of Troy twice had to come back from deficits to win, an unfamiliar situation considering the dominance with which they’ve been able to put opponents away from the start. After falling behind 2-1, the Women of Troy fought hard during the fourth set, taking the Huskies to an 18-all tie before registering four straight points to go up 22-20. Bricio then knocked down a powerful kill to take the set 25-23 and tie the match at two apiece.It was only fitting that the fifth and final set was as close as the others, as the teams were tied at eight before the Women of Troy ran away with it. Senior opposite Katie Fuller knocked down a kill for a 13-9 lead, after which junior libero Natalie Hagglund and sophomore setter Emily Young combined to set up Bricio for a kill to end the set 15-10 and claim the match for the hosts.“When we left Washington, we felt like we should have won, even though they beat us 3-0 up there,” Haley said. “We weren’t in sync in that match. I thought that we could have won in three [sets] over here, but we made too many errors in the beginning. However, as we kept playing we got more and more confident, so winning in five was fine.”After the perfect, two-week homestand, the Women of Troy will again hit the road, with games at Arizona State and Arizona this weekend.“Winning on the road is extremely important for us, because we have six of our ten matches on the road in the second round,” Haley said. “We’ll take them one at a time, and we need to take them seriously and prepare for that.”
Former Arsenal striker Alan Smith has told Gunners stars ‘not to get involved’ with Chelsea bad boy striker Diego Costa as the Premier League giants prepare for their Super Sunday clash.The previous meeting between the clubs hit the headlines after the Spanish striker tussled with a number of Arsenal players, with defender Gabriel Paulista sent off for his part in the scrap.The struggling top flight champions recorded a rare victory in that game, while they have lost just twice in 11 visits to the Emirates Stadium.But with 19 points currently separating the rivals in the top flight table, league leaders Arsenal have a chance to end their hoodoo with a victory at the weekend, and Smith has urged Arsene Wenger’s players to keep their heads when they face the troublesome Costa.Speaking on the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast, plunderer-turned-pundit Smith said: “Costa was key at Stamford Bridge, when Gabriel got sucked into that spat.“He was a bit naïve to get sent off in that game, but I’m sure Arsene Wenger will talk with his defenders about Costa and just say, ‘don’t get involved, just concentrate on your game’.“Diego Costa absolutely loves winding players up. He thrives of it and he does a bit too much now, I think it detracts from his game.“But the Arsenal boys do not want to be getting involved in that on Sunday.”
