Nicholls advances to face No. 3 Northwestern State today at 4 p.m. CT. Two batters later and it was a one-run game after an Ethan Valdez RBI single up the middle, pulling the Colonels to 6-5 with one out and one runner on first. Another single base hit up the middle from Joey Morales put the potential game-winning run on base, followed by Chet Niehaus being hit by a pitch to load the bases with one out. A sac fly from Cody Grosse got Pace to the plate before the inning came to a close and the Lions took a 2-0 lead to the bottom of the fifth. Nicholls’ Xane Washington singled through to shallow left field and advanced to third on a throwing error past third base, giving the Colonels a runner in scoring position with no outs. Koestler and the Lions held off the next two batters but a passed ball on a full count with two outs allowed Washington to make it home and pull the score to 2-1 Lions. Kyle Knauth’s RBI single saw him reach on a fielder’s choice after the throw went past first base, scoring Morales and Valdez for the 7-6 walkoff win.BSB: Here’s the game-winning sequence for @Nicholls_BASE, completing five-run bottom of the 9th rally.

WESTERN BUREAU: Edwin Allen entered their opening ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup Group H football match against defending champions Clarendon College feeling pretty good about their chances. Their got one consolation – a successful penalty kick that was scored by Khimani Orr in the 26th minute. Joel Sterling left them travelling home feeling blue as he netted a hat-trick to lead Clarendon College to a 6-1 win. It began as expected. The champions were in a no-nonsense mood and quickly began to make their presence felt. In the sixth minute, Sterling fired home his first goal to give Clarendon College the lead. His second came in minute 69, and his third on the 77th-minute mark. Before then, Orr was asked to take a penalty awarded by the referee after a defender was adjudged to have committed a foul inside the area. He converted to make things a little more interesting. Thereafter, it was a matter of how many more goals the Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis-coached Clarendon College would score. That question was answered in emphatic style when forward Seigle Knight fired into the back of the net to make it 2-1 in the 27th minute, then at minute 35, as Roger Russell added his name to the scoresheet when his shot beat Edwin Allen’s Kajay Johnson in goal. Clarendon came out in the second half looking for more and they got it in the 63rd minute when Knight blasted home his second, and his team’s fourth, against an Edwin Allen team that looked dazed, due to the ease at which Clarendon carved through their defence. Thereafter, it was Sterling’s show. The sure-footed forward was dangerous in every attack and managed to close out his hat-trick with a lot of time left on the clock. “There is more to come from me this season,” said Sterling. “I am working hard. The team is working hard and we need to defend the title. “Scoring three goals in any match is a great feeling, so right now, I am enjoying it. But we will refocus for our next game against Kellits on Wednesday,” Sterling added. Davis was full of praise for his young striker, calling the result an outstanding one on which to build the season. “We won with a big margin, but it wasn’t as easy as it seemed. Every game in this group is like a derby, so it requires a special sort of attention from us. Today, the boys did well and now that we have bagged our first win, we are going to keep rolling,” said Davis. Sterling’s show

(AP Photo/Ben Margot)OAKLAND, Calif. — Even without NBA scoring leader James Harden, the Houston Rockets took it to Golden State from the very start.Eric Gordon scored 25 points with four 3-pointers, Chris Paul converted two free throws with 1:08 left on the way to 23, and the Rockets outplayed the Warriors without the ill Harden for a 118-112 victory Saturday night.ADVERTISEMENT While Harden also has a strained neck, coach Mike D’Antoni said the reigning MVP probably could have played through that.Harden hurt the neck when he got hit during a practice leading up to Thursday’s road loss to the Lakers and woke up sore the next day.“He might’ve played even with a sore neck. He had a little touch of the flu. It was a combination of everything,” D’Antoni said.In the Rockets’ last visit to Oracle Arena, Harden hit a contested 3-pointer with 2.7 seconds left in a 135-134 overtime win on Jan. 3 in which he finished with a triple-double and his fifth straight 40-point game.

Curry was 5 for 11 from deep.“Right from the start they played harder and smarter than we did,” Warriors coach Steve Kerr said.Much like last time, Golden State’s biggest stars missed key shots when it mattered. The Warriors dug themselves an immediate hole, falling behind 15-0 before consecutive 3s by Thompson and Curry.They went 14 of 37 on 3s in last month’s matchup, with Curry 5 for 15 and Durant 1 of 5. After that loss, the Warriors won 11 straight.“As a whole our energy was just bad and our attention to detail in those first six minutes,” Curry said. “Yeah, we’ve got some stuff to work on. We know we’re not playing our best even through running off a lot of wins in that last little stretch. We know who we are. We’ve just got to get to that point.” Eugenie Bouchard’s bid for Australian Open spot ends in qualifying Tom Brady most dominant player in AFC championship history View comments There wasn’t an immediate update on Green, who Curry said “was in good spirits after the game so I’m assuming it’s not anything serious.”“He’ll be back for the playoffs. That’s the only thing we worry about here, right?” Durant said.Paul handed out 11 of his season-high 17 assists in the first half to reach 9,000 for his career, helping Houston avoid a third straight road loss.Cousins notched his third straight double-double with 13 points and a season-best 14 rebounds, while Klay Thompson had 20 points and six assists.Curry’s 3 in the final 30 seconds of the first half and a jumper to beat the buzzer by Andre Iguodala got Golden State to 61-54 at halftime after the two-time defending champions trailed by 20.ADVERTISEMENT “You can come in here and win on a Monday night in February or a Tuesday night in November or December,” Paul said. “But in the playoffs is when you have to beat a team four out of seven times. It’s great tonight that we won this but in two days y’all will forget this. We all will.”Early in the fourth, Golden State’s Draymond Green exited the game with a sprained left ankle after grabbing at his foot in clear pain from stepping on teammate DeMarcus Cousins’ foot.

Ezenwa seen in court before he was taken back to jailDefendant Olisa Anthony, 44, a Nigerian national who was arrested by police when he held hostage one of his kinsmen, Ifechukwe Ibe and allegedly demanded US$1,800 as ransom from the victim’s family in Nigeria, was for the first time on Friday, July 20, brought before the Monrovia City Court at the Temple of Justice for preliminary hearing on the commission of his multiple crimes that include kidnapping.Ezenwa was arrested on July 13 this year at his Doe Community residence on the outskirts of Monrovia where he had held hostage the victim for four days. The victim, Ibo, was rescued and found to have been inflicted with severe bruises on his body.At Friday’s hearing, Magistrate Kennedy Peabody ordered the court’s bailiff to take defendant Ezenwa to the Monrovia Central Prison without any delay.Peabody’s reason was that Ezenwa could not hire a lawyer to secure his bond that would have prevented him from being sent to jail, because the crimes of recklessly endangering another person’s life, kidnapping, simple assault and menacing (frightening, alarming) for which police charged Ezenwa, qualifies him for bail.Court documents alleged that on July 9 Ezenwa and his collaborators, who are still at large, gave Ibe US$1,800 to bring narcotic drugs into the country.Unfortunately, the record claimed that after Ibe successfully shipped the drugs into the country, he delivered the consignment to Ezenwa. But later Ezenwa discovered that the drugs that Ibe brought him was believed to be fake.Ibe’s action caused serious frustration and embarrassment to Ezenwa’s narcotic business, and Ezenwa and his collaborators decided to take the law into their own hands by holding Ibe hostage for four days, during which they inflicted multiple bodily injuries on the victim.While being held hostage, the document alleged, Ezenwa photographed and videotaped Ibe and later sent those evidence to the victim’s family in Nigeria, demanding a ransom of US$1,800 or he would kill Ibe.The money was not paid when police received a tip-off about the ensuing hostage, which led to Ibe’s rescue and Ezenwa’s subsequent arrest.Police claimed that Ezenwa admitted to keeping Ibe hostage and demanding a ransom of US$1,800, but the defendant said it was some of his kinsmen who set him up.Kidnappings for ransom is gradually becoming a common business in the country, and security authorities need to increase surveillance activities in order to ensure that the practice does not take root in Liberia as is the case with other African countries, especially Nigeria.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

CASTAIC – Castaic residents will get together at 7tonight with county and school district officials for what is expected to be the first in a series of town meetings to discuss the future of the long-awaited Castaic High School. Paul Novak, planning deputy for Los Angeles County Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich; Mike Walline, president of the development company SunCal; John Kunak, president of the Castaic school board and a Castaic Town Council member; local schools Superintendent Jim Gibson; and officials with the Hart Union High School District will meet at Castaic Middle School for a panel discussion on plans for the high school. Castaic High, already delayed by three years, is being reviewed by the county Regional Planning Commission as part of SunCal’s NorthLake development. The next planning commission meeting is scheduled for June20. John Zaring, founder of Castaic United to Build a School, is sponsoring the round-table meeting that he says will help answer questions about the proposed high school. “I think this whole process has been bogged down by misinformation and rumors,” Zaring said. “The purpose is to give the community an opportunity to learn from the people involved with the school what the truth is.” Zaring said he has promoted the meeting via chain e-mails and hundreds of fliers and is expecting a large crowd. He has also asked the community to “behave” with panel members. Emotions have run high in the past, and Zaring is hoping to have some healthy discussion. “At this stage, it’s about putting ourselves in a position to build a school,” he said. firstname.lastname@example.org
A panel reviewing whether to raise Los Angeles Unified School District board members’ pay began work Thursday by calling for reports on salaries and top administrators’ wages at other districts. Creation of the panel was approved by voters in March in a measure that changed the City Charter and also imposed a maximum of three four-year terms on school board members and requires them to report campaign fundraising activity to the city Ethics Commission. School board members are paid $25,000 a year for what is considered a part-time job governing a district with more than 700,000 students. Members of the panel were appointed by Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa, City Council President Eric Garcetti, the county Board of Supervisors and by the Southeast Cities Association. Panelists include: Victor Narro of West Los Angeles, a project director at the UCLA Labor Center; Gabriel Buelna, a Los Angeles parent; Tyrone Freeman of Los Angeles, head of the SEIU, Local 6434; and Debra Silbar, a Topanga parent. Also on the panel are Maria Davila, a South Gate councilwoman; Michael Okafur, San Fernando city personnel manager; Patricia Clarey of Studio City, chief operating officer of Health Net of California; and Bill DeWitte of General Veneer Manufacturing in South Gate. The group has delayed electing a permanent head as city and school staffers begin to gather the requested reports. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
