Eddie Godina kicked a 32-yard field goal on the final play and Northwestern State won its first game of the spring season in its season finale 49-47 over Incarnate Word on Saturday night. Incarnate Word was the last team that could challenge Sam Houston State for the Southland Conference title and Saturday night’s loss knocked it out of contention. Had the Cardinals (3-2, 3-2) beat Northwestern State, their season finale on Saturday, hosting the undefeated and fifth-ranked Bearkats, would have determined the Southland’s regular season champion.
RowllinBorges, much like Stimac, is aware that India weren’t particularly exceptional against the UAE, saying that the Blue Tigers were unable to implement the ideas Stimac had laid out, although he mentioned that it wasn’t for a lack of effort.
LOS ANGELES — Chris Taylor hit a three-run homer and Zach McKinstry made big plays with his bat and glove as the Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the Washington Nationals 9-5 Saturday night. AJ Pollock also drove in three runs for the defending World Series champions, who are off to a 7-2 start that includes wins in four of their last five games. Julio Urías (2-0) allowed three runs in 5 2/3 innings. Juan Soto homered twice and Ryan Zimmerman had three hits for the Nationals, who remain without four players due to coronavirus cases and quarantines. Taylor's two-out drive to left field off Patrick Corbin (0-1) was the key hit during a five-run second. Taylor's first home run of the season came two batters after McKinstry's single plated a pair of runs to give the Dodgers a 2-1 lead. McKinstry, playing right field with Cody Bellinger on the injured list, made a big defensive play to end the top of the first when he threw out Zimmerman at third after a bloop RBI single by Starlin Castro. Pollock came up big in the seventh, clearing the bases with a two-out double to left. Andrew Stevenson tried to make a diving grab but missed, with the ball rolling to the wall before it was retrieved by Castro. Washington pulled to 6-3 in the sixth when Soto lined a drive into the bleachers in right field and Yan Gomes had an RBI single. The Nationals had the bases loaded with two outs but Jimmy Nelson struck out Stevenson. Soto struck again in the ninth with a two-run shot to right for his eighth career multi-homer game. FOR STARTERS Corbin, reinstated from the injured list Saturday after clearing COVID-19 protocols, retired the Dodgers in order in the first on 12 pitches but had control problems in the second. He walked the first three batters in the inning before Will Smith was forced out at home on Gavin Lux's grounder to first. Then came McKinstry's single and Taylor's homer. The left-hander struck out four straight Dodgers in the fourth and fifth before being chased when Corey Seager got aboard on a single and came home on Justin Turner's double to give the Dodgers a 6-1 lead. Corbin ended up allowing six runs on six hits and struck out five. Urías retired 11 straight from the second to the sixth before surrendering Soto's solo shot. The left-hander allowed nine hits and struck out three. LASORDA TRIBUTE The Dodgers honoured late Hall of Fame manager Tommy Lasorda before the game. The video tribute featured Lasorda singing Frank Sinatra's “My Way” during spring training in 2013 during a montage of highlights. Lasorda passed away on Jan. 7 at age 93 due to a heart attack. TRAINER'S ROOM Nationals: RHP Will Harris (right hand inflammation) has progressed to long tossing at the team's alternate training site in Fredericksburg, Virginia. ... RHP Kyle McGowin was moved to the taxi squad after Corbin was brought off the injured list. ... INF Adrián Sanchez has been sent to the alternate training site. Dodgers: OF Mookie Betts (lower back stiffness) was held out of the lineup for a third straight game but did some hitting pregame. Manager Dave Roberts said he does not foresee Betts being placed on the injured list. ... RHP Brusdar Graterol (non-injury related) threw 15 pitches in a simulated inning. ... RHP Tony Gonsolin (right shoulder inflammation) will throw a bullpen Sunday.

The 39-year-old Swede was given a straight red card for arguing with the referee at the Stadio Ennio Tardini when his team were two goals ahead.
TORONTO — Auston Matthews and Mitch Marner have a tradition of passing the puck back at forth at the end of every pre-game warmup.The disc often looks like it's on a string as the two stars play pitch and catch — always the last two Maple Leafs off the ice.The duo has never been more in sync than they are in 2021, and that was once again on full display Saturday.Matthews had a hat trick and an assist to increase his league-leading goal total to 31, Marner scored one and set up all three of his friend and linemate's efforts, and Toronto defeated the Ottawa Senators 6-5 for a season-high sixth straight win.The 23 year olds both sit with 52 points through 41 games to become the first Leafs to crack the half-century mark in that span since the 1942-43 campaign."Chemistry-wise, I think we're at an all-time high," Marner said. "We're moving the puck very well, we're talking to each other constantly on the ice and on the bench about what we're seeing. "(We) have the same offensive awareness of where each other's going to be."Matthews, who now has five straight 30-goal seasons to start his career, recorded just his third hat trick since being picked first overall in 2016. "It felt really good," Matthews, who's also scored two goals on 35 separate occasions, said with a grin.Matthews, Marner and Alex Galchenyuk — was promoted to the top line with William Nylander out due to the NHL's COVID-19 protocol and Zach Hyman bumped down to the second trio — combined for 10 points against Ottawa."Those two guys were making plays all night," Matthews added. "I was fortunate to be on the receiving end of a couple nice passes."Jack Campbell made 27 saves to set an NHL record with his 11th consecutive victory to start a season for Toronto (28-10-3), which improved to 5-2-1 against its provincial rival in the pandemic-shortened campaign.Currently the Leafs' No. 1 crease option with Frederik Andersen still nursing a lower-body injury, Campbell set another franchise record Wednesday by picking up a 10th straight win."I definitely owe the boys a nice Red Lobster dinner, that's for sure," he said of his performance versus the Senators. "Definitely not what I expect out of myself, but thankfully we have a great team."They carried me tonight."Hyman and Ilya Mikheyev, both with a goal and an assist, provided the rest of the offence for the North Division leaders, who are 9-0-1 over their last 10.Tim Stutzle, Drake Batherson and Connor Brown, with a goal and an assist each, Alex Formenton and Josh Norris replied for Ottawa (13-25-4). Anton Forsberg stopped 32 shots for the Senators, who have lost four straight and are 1-5-1 over their last seven."A lot of great plays and a lot of learning lessons," Ottawa head coach D.J. Smith said. "We were careless with the puck against their top line."Brown set a franchise record by scoring in a seventh straight game — breaking a tie with Batherson, Jason Spezza, Dany Heatley, Daniel Alfredsson and Bob Kudelski — against the team that drafted him in 2012 and traded him away in 2019."It means a lot," Brown said. "I've grinded pretty hard in my career. There's been times when I've been a checker."I've had a really good (offensive) opportunity here."Matthews opened the scoring at 8:52 of the first period on a sequence that started with Senators defenceman Erik Gudbranson turning the puck over. Marner raced the other way and dropped a pass to Matthews, who ripped a shot past Forsberg's blocker.Leafs head coach Sheldon Keefe's decision to go right back to his top line on the next shift then paid immediate dividends.Galchenyuk, who played sparingly with Ottawa earlier this season before being traded to the Carolina Hurricanes and subsequently flipped to Toronto, started the play that ended with two more quick passes and Matthews' 30th goal just 39 seconds later."Auston shot the puck probably as good as he has in, I don't know, months," said Keefe, referencing the centre's nagging wrist injury.The Senators made it 2-1 at 12:02 of the second when Batherson cleaned up Stutzle's shot off the post for his 13th.The Leafs got their first power play, but Formenton stole the puck from Morgan Rielly and raced in on a breakaway to score his third at 13:49.Ottawa added its third goal in 4:23 to take the lead when Stutzle, who hadn't scored in 13 games, wired a shot upstairs on Campbell to make it 3-2."Obviously we gave up too much," Keefe said. "That Ottawa team, to me, is playing as well as anyone in the division. They're not getting nearly enough credit for it. The start they had to the season dug them a really large hole."They save their best for us, perhaps, but in terms of playing against them, it's just as hard as anybody else."The goal deluge continued 27 seconds later when Marner popped his 14th home off a mad scramble in Forsberg's crease after Stutzle a turnover."It was great to get (a goal)," said Stutzle, the No. 3 pick in the 2020 draft. "But in the end I play to win."The Leafs kept coming and restored their advantage with under a minute to go in the period when Senators blue-liner Thomas Chabot also coughed the puck up to Marner, who again fed Matthews."I don't know if my vocabulary's big enough to describe it," Campbell said of the Matthews-Marner connection. "It's such a treat to watch. It's special."What they bring to this team is invaluable."Matthews had a memorable four-goal NHL debut against Ottawa in 2016, and has now scored 22 times — including nine this season alone — and added 16 assists in 23 career games against the Senators.The Leafs made it 5-3 at 4:44 of the third when Mikheyev scored his sixth, but Brown replied with his 13th to set the Ottawa franchise mark just over three minutes later.Hyman fired his 14th into an empty net to make it 6-4 before Norris buried his 11th on a late power play for the visitors."A nice two points," Matthews said. "But not the prettiest win."This report by The Canadian Press was first published April 10, 2021.___Follow @JClipperton_CP on Twitter Joshua Clipperton, The Canadian Press
