SFA Captures Kutztown Invitational Championship

first_imgThe Ladyjacks finished the event with a near-perfect 11-1 record and a pinfall total of 12,785, while runner-up Arkansas State tallied 14,060 pins over the weekend and posted a 10-3 mark. Fourth-seeded and eighth-ranked Maryland-Eastern Shore took home third place after earning a 4-2 win over fourth-place finisher Fairleigh Dickinson. Following its first-round defeat, Arkansas State bested third-seeded and seventh-ranked Fairleigh Dickinson 4-1 to reach the championship match where both teams bowled a 158 in the opening game. The Ladyjacks took a 1.5-0.5 lead in the affair with an impressive 246-168 game two triumph but a 243-167 game three went the way of the Red Wolves, tying the match up once again at 1.5-1.5. SFA edged Arkansas State by two pins in both games four and five, 180-178 and 193-191 respectively, before clinching the tournament title with a 192-182 game six victory. Heading into Sunday’s bracket play as the No. 2 seed, SFA defeated the top-seeded Red Wolves 4-3 in the opening round before ousting Arkansas State 4.5-1.5 in the championship match. Due to a team dropping out of the three-day event and leaving an odd number of teams (27), the Ladyjacks received a match off from competition following their first-round win. “It was a total team effort all weekend,” head coach Amber Lemke said following the tournament. “Everyone on the team competed and contributed to our success this weekend. I’m really excited for this team and where we can go, putting in all the hard work at practice and then being able to see it payoff is an amazing thing to watch. This was our most consistent tournament from day one to day three that we have had in a long time.” SFA jumped out to a 2-0 lead in its first bout with the Red Wolves, taking game one and two of the match by scores of 167-157 and 195-189. However, Arkansas State rolled back-to-back games of 213 and 217 to tie things up at 2-2, before the Ladyjacks earned a lopsided 206-152 game five. After the Red Wolves claimed game six, 221-207, SFA worked its way to a 226-201 decisive game seven victory to land a spot in the title match.center_img LIMERICK, Pa. – For the first time since earning the school’s inaugural NCAA Division I team national championship in April of 2016, the SFA bowling team captured a tournament title Sunday afternoon inside Limerick Bowl.

Bayern boss welcomes FIFA plans to revamp Club W Cup

first_img0Shares0000Bayern Munich CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has backed plans by FIFA president Gianni Infantino to revamp the Club World Cup from 2021 © AFP/File / Christof STACHEBERLIN, Germany, Mar 17 – Bayern Munich’s Karl-Heinz Rummenigge has welcomed plans to revamp the Club World Cup, two days after the idea was rejected by UEFA and the European Club Association (ECA), to which Bayern belongs.“The current Club World Cup in December is a nonsense,” Rummenigge who is both Bayern chairman and honorary chair of the ECA, told Sunday’s edition of Frankfurt-based newspaper Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung. “I understand why FIFA should want to reform this competition.”Last Friday, however the ECA threatened to boycott plans to expand the annual Club World Cup to 24 teams in 2021, a project led by FIFA President Gianni Infantino, and Rummenigge criticised the Swiss boss over his handling.“I think that Gianni Infantino was wrong not to agree beforehand with the ECA and with (it’s president) Andrea Agnelli,” answered Rummenigge, when questioned about the attitude of Europe’s top clubs.“This led to this public defensive position, I regret it and I do not appreciate that between FIFA, UEFA and ECA there is not a basis for positive discussion.”The ECA, founded in 2008 with 16 teams, represents Europe’s top sides and currently has 109 members, including Rummenigge’s Bavarians.Rummenigge believes the ECA must have a say in the distribution of revenues for this new event.“I have heard that a portion of the revenues will go to the national associations, but I think (the deal) is not done yet and the solidarity contributions have to go to the leagues and their clubs – that’s obvious.“At the end of the day, it’s a competition played by clubs.”However, the Bayern boss is unhappy that the plans include replacing the Confederations Cup, held every four years at the end of the season before a World Cup, in the already over-crowded football calendar.“Every time, we are asked to make our players available, without us getting any benefit as a club,” Rummenigge complained.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
