In right place at right time, Rogers takes Monarch IMCA Lone Star Tour checkers

first_imgFeature Results Rogers and Elijah Zevenbergen remained the closest challengers to Sobbing, who was in another area code before breaking and rolling into the infield with nine laps left.  Rogers raced to the $1,000 Sniper Speed Lone Star Tour checkers Friday at Monarch Motor Speedway, getting the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car lead back after Sobbing broke and then holding off Derek Green in a green, white, checkered finish. Anthony Roth was fastest and in the lead early, but caught the wall while avoiding two cars stopped on the front stretch and exited under caution on lap 10. Sanders’ turn up front lasted a single circuit before Sobbing took charge.

Winner of the night two Ice Breaker at Abilene Speedway and already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot, Sobbing had started the Modified feature from seventh and passed Rodney Sanders for the lead 11 laps into the 30-lapper.

Aston Villa boss Tim Sherwood calls for calm in Baggies derby

first_imgBoss Tim Sherwood has urged Aston Villa fans to keep their derby emotions in check against West Brom. Seats were also thrown from the Albion section onto Villa supporters in the stand with Tony Pulis insisting he feared for his players’ safety during the invasion. Claudio Yacob and Jack Grealish were also sent off in the second half during a feisty game which came just four days after Villa had won their Barclays Premier League clash 2-0. And Sherwood wants supporters to stay in their seats even if his side win the game. He said: “I just hope that they’re tempted to. If they are then we’ve done something right but p lease stay to the edge on the pitch. Do all your cheering from there. You do it well enough. “They give great support to this football club, to the players and to myself. “It can be done from their seats or standing up. Make sure you stay off the pitch. “I just hope you get tempted to jump on it.” Idrissa Gueye’s hamstring injury will be assessed on Friday after he missed Sunday’s 3-2 defeat at Leicester while Carles Gil and Adama Traore (both calf) are doubts. The teams face each other at Villa Park on Saturday for the first time since their fiery FA Cup clash last season. Villa won the quarter-final 2-1 in March but were eventually fined £200,000 after fans twice invaded the pitch, once during and once at the end of the game. Press Association Sherwood added: ” I hear a lot of managers say it is just another game. It is not actually. It means a lot more than that, it is local pride, bragging rights. We have to make sure we do it for our fans and ourselves.” Albion chief Pulis hopes both sets of supporters will behave themselves on Saturday following the trouble last term. The Baggies boss, who expects to have Jonny Evans fit after a dead leg, wants any losing fans to show their character. “Derby matches are derby matches, they are fantastic games to be involved in and wonderful occasions,” he said. “The disappointing thing last year was the crowd trouble and I hope and pray both sets of supporters go there tomorrow and really respect football. That’s what it’s really about, two teams going head to head and giving it everything. “Hopefully we’ll have a great game, people will behave themselves and it does take a bit of character to stand up and walk away if you have lost. That’s what people should do. “I was disappointed in the reaction of some supporters because people should go there to enjoy the game and be big enough and man enough to accept if they win, lose or draw.” last_img read more

Powered by Firework Team India’s tour of New Zealand is going downhill since the 3-0 ODI whitewash, and now adding salt to the wound, the hosts have snatched victory in the first Test with an easy 10-wicket chase win in the second innings today at the Basin Reserve cricket ground. Starting from 144 for 4, India’s middle to lower batting order gave up in front of a dominating Kiwi bowling attack, ending their run on a score of 191. In the second innings, it was a walk in the park for New Zealand as they had to score just 9 runs.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Sky Sports/GettyIndian batsmen Ajinkya Rahane and Hanuma Vihari resumed the visitors’ innings, and a late effort was seen from India’s wicket keeper Rishabh Pant, but all fell victim to the astounding performance from New Zealand bowlers Trent Boult and Tim Southee.Boult secured his 4th wicket of the Test by picking up Rahane at 29, while Southee secured his 10th 5-wicket haul in the red ball format.Advertisement Along with picking Mayank Agarwal yesterday, the 31 year old veteran pacer dismissed Vihari, Rishabh Pant, Ravichandran Ashwin and Jasprit Bumrah in the end.Pant only managed to score 25 runs with four boundaries, and the in-form Ishant Sharma had some input in the later overs with scoring 12 with two fours.

However, the 31 year old is keeping a positive mindset for the next games to come. “For some people, it might be the end of the world but it’s not.
