Brady, Pats Win Number 6…Bruins Blank Caps…SU Men Fall In OT
The New England Patriots are again atop the pro football world, after an old-school 13-3 win over the Los Angeles Rams last night in Super Bowl 53. New England broke a 3-3 tie with the game’s only touchdown, and the clinching field goal in the 4th period to win their 6th championship in 9 Super Bowl appearances with the head coach-quarterback combo of Bill Belichick and Tom Brady. Receiver Julian Edelman was the game’s MVP with 10 catches for 1412 yards.
The Shenandoah University Hornets dropped an 89-85 overtime decision to Ferrum Saturday at the Wilkins Center. The Hornets trailed by 13 at halftime, only to rally and send the game into the extra frame, where the panthers scored the final nine points. Chris Chaney and Jaylen Williams combined for 42 SU points, as the Hornets fell to 5-16, and 1-11 in the ODAC. Shenandoah will travel to Bridgewater Wednesday for a 7pm tip on The River 95-3.
The Hornet women honored senior Shannon Kuhn Saturday with a 70-41 shellacking of Randolph at the Wilkins Center. The Hornets rolled to a commanding 45-16 halftime lead and cruised to their 10th win of the season, and 6th ODAC victory. Jordan Sondrol led SU with 14. Next up for the Hornet women, a Tuesday 7pm contest at Randolph-Macon.
SU Senior Shamyra Wilkerson set the school record in the 60 meter sprint at the Bomber Invitational track and field meet yesterday at Ithica College in New York. The Hornets had 25 personal bests and 17 ODAC qualifying marks on the day.
The Boston Bruins scored a lone second period goal and made it stand up in a 1-0 win over the Caps yesterday. Braden Holtby stopped 37 of 38 Boston shots, but got no offensive support, as the Capitals have now lost 8 of their last 9. The Caps take on Vancouver tomorrow night at 7 on Sports Radio 1450.
