WEDNESDAY RESULTS – September 11
FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (AP) – Wide receiver Antonio Brown went through his first practice with the New England Patriots yesterday. Wednesday’s workout was held one day after Brown’s former trainer filed a civil lawsuit in Florida accusing him of sexually assaulting her on three occasions. Patriots coach Bill Belichick declined to comment on additional questions about Brown other than to say the team takes the allegations very seriously.
BALTIMORE (AP) – The big league single-season record for total homers was broken when Baltimore Orioles infielder Jonathan Villar clubbed a three-run shot in a 7-3 win over the Los Angeles Dodgers. It was the 6,106th home run hit in the majors this year, topping the old mark set in 2017. John Means limited the N-L West champions to two runs and four hits over 6 1/3 innings, one day after Los Angeles wrapped up its seventh consecutive division title.
NEW YORK (AP) – The New York Times says Justify won the 2018 Triple Crown after a failed postrace drug test at a California track that could have kept the horse out of the Kentucky Derby. The newspaper reported Wednesday that the Bob Baffert-trained colt tested positive for the drug scopolamine after winning the Santa Anita Derby, one of the final prep races for the Kentucky Derby. The Times said instead of a speedy disqualification, the California Horse Racing Board took more than a month to confirm the results.
INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – The NCAA Board of Governors wants California Gov. Gavin Newsom to reject a new attempt to pay college athletes. The board has sent a letter to Newsom urging him not to sign the legislation known as the Fair Pay to Play Act, which would allow college athletes to be paid for the use of their names, likenesses and images. The board warned that California schools may be declared ineligible for NCAA competition if the bill becomes law because they would have an unfair recruiting advantage.
PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. (AP) – Rory McIlroy has been voted PGA Tour player of the year over Brooks Koepka after posting the most top-10 finishes and winning the FedEx Cup. It’s the third time McIlroy has won the Jack Nicklaus Award, and the first without having won a major. McIlroy had three victories among his tour-best 14 finishes in the top 10, including The Players Championship.

SHELDON — Le Mars built a 27-7 lead before holding off a frantic fourth quarter rally by Sheldon that fell two points short and the Bulldogs escaped with a 27-25 victory Friday night in non-district football action in Sheldon. Colton Hoag ran three yards for the first Le Mars touchdown with Tate Westhoff running for a two-point conversion. Westhoff threw TD passes to Hoag and Aisea Toki for a 21-0 lead late in the first half. Sheldon quarterback Kaleb Ackerman completed just one pass in the first half but it was a 63-yard TD bomb to Tyrel Lindemann with 50 seconds left before intermission to cut the Bulldog lead to 21-7. Le Mars extended their lead to 27-7 late in the third quarter on a five yard run by Trevor Smith. Sheldon scored on the first play of the fourth quarter on a 15 yard TD pass from Ackerman to Mitchell Wolf, setting off a bizarre next six minutes of football. Sheldon recovered a fumble on the ensuing kickoff to set up a one yard TD run by Brian Burnal to trim the Le Mars lead to 27-19. Another Le Mars fumble set up a third touchdown in the final quarter, a four yard TD pass from Ackerman to Tyrel Lindemann with 4:08 left in the game, to close the gap to 27-25. A two-point conversion pass on a razzle-dazzle play was dropped in the end zone. Sheldon never got close to the end zone again. Le Mars had a 319-234 yardage advantage but for the second week in a row had over 100 yards in penalties. The Bulldogs improve to 2-1 and now play their first game in the newly renovated Jim Lorenzen Field next Friday against Sioux City North as the Bulldogs celebrate homecoming.
MOVILLE — Woodbury Central won a defensive battle over Gehlen Catholic, 14-2, Friday night in Moville to hand the Jays their first loss in three games. Gehlen was limited to just 188 yards of offense, scoring their only points on defense when Cade Walgenbach tackled the Woodbury Central quarterback in the end zone for a fourth quarter safety. Wade Mitchell broke up a scoreless tie with a one yard run in the second quarter. The Cats extended the lead to 14-0 in the third quarter on a 28 yard, Jase Manker-to-Mitchell Countryman TD pass. Manker threw for 168 yards on 12 for 23 passing. Ethan Copeland grabbed five passes for 58 yards while Countryman hauled in three pass catches for 45 yards. Derek Von Arb had 83 yards rushing for Gehlen on 17 carries. The Jays close out non-district play next Friday night at Hawarden against top-rated (1A) and two-time defending State champion, West Sioux. The game will be carried on KLEM.

AMES, Iowa (AP) — Nate Stanley threw for 201 yards and ran for a score, and No. 19 Iowa made a big fourth-down stop late in the game that allowed the Hawkeyes to beat Iowa State 18-17 on Saturday night in Ames. Keith Duncan kicked four field goals for the Hawkeyes (3-0), who improved to 4-0 against Iowa State coach Matt Campbell in a game twice delayed nearly 3 hours because of lightning. Trailing 18-17 in the closing minutes, Iowa State drove to the Iowa 34 before a false start, a slip by quarterback Brock Purdy and an incompletion brought up fourth-and-13. The Cyclones went for it and, after offsetting penalties led to a do-over, Purdy overthrew Deshaunte Jones near the end zone with 2:00 left to turn the ball over on downs. The Cyclones got another chance when they forced a quick punt. But the ball hit Datrone Young in the back and Iowa’s Devonte Young recovered it, sealing the closest win in the 67-game history of the series for the Hawkeyes. Iowa State (1-1) opened the scoring on a 51-yard double pass from Purdy to Jones — a converted prep quarterback — to La’Michael Pettway midway through the first quarter. The Cyclones then moved ahead 14-6 just 57 seconds into the second half on a 73-yard strike from Purdy to Tarique Milton, who breezed past Iowa’s banged-up secondary. Iowa’s defense stiffened, though, and Stanley’s 1-yard touchdown plunge gave the Hawkeyes a 15-14 lead with 12:10 left. Connor Assalley’s 26-yard field goal gave Iowa State the lead with 7:46 to go but Duncan answered from 39 yards with 4:51 left with what proved to be the game-winning kick.
LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — Adrian Martinez threw for two touchdowns and ran for another, Dedrick Mills rushed for 116 yards and Nebraska beat Northern Illinois 44-8. The Cornhuskers bounced back from blowing a 17-point lead in an overtime loss at Colorado last week. NIU won 21-17 in Lincoln two years ago but was no match this time.

TORONTO (AP) _ James Paxton pitched five innings to win his ninth straight start, Brett Gardner homered twice and drove in five runs and the New York Yankees hit five homers in a 13-3 win over the Toronto Blue Jays. Gleyber Torres and Luke Voit also homered for the Yankees, going back-to-back off right-hander Brock Stewart in the fifth, as the AL East leaders won for the 14th time in 19 games.

CLEVELAND (AP) — Miguel Sanó’s grand slam capped a five-run eighth inning and the Minnesota Twins grabbed firm control of the AL Central by beating the Cleveland Indians 9-5, completing a sweep of Saturday’s day-night doubleheader.
