Badgers Knock off 3rd Ranked Team with Last-Second Field Goal

first_img Written by August 26, 2019 /Sports News – Local Badgers Knock off 3rd Ranked Team with Last-Second Field Goal FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailGARDEN CITY, Kans. (Aug. 24, 2019) — A back and forth nail-biter between the nationally ranked No. 3 Garden City Broncbusters and No. 6 Snow College Badgers came to a close when Freshman Kicker Jose Pizano nailed a 32-yard Field Goal to win the game for Snow College 30-27 with no time on the clock.Snow College head coach Andrew Mitchell’s first game at the helm got off to a rough start as the Badger’s turned the ball over on each of their first three drives, coughing up two fumbles (one on a punt attempt) and throwing an interception early in the first quarter. The defense, however, was able to limit the damage, forcing Garden City to just two field goals.The Badgers failed to convert a 4th down conversion attempt in their own territory, leading to the Broncbuster’s first touchdown of the 2019 season extending their lead to 13-0 in the second quarter.“In the first game, there’s a lot of crazy things that can happen,” Mitchell said. “These are young football players and they’re gonna make some mistakes. There are some things as coaches we could have done better.”Fortunately, after a series of penalties against the Garden City defense, the Badgers marched down the field and punched in a field goal before the half to cut the deficit to 10.There must have been a speech given at halftime similar to that of Herb Brooks in ‘Miracle on Ice’ because the Snow College offense took the field in the 3rd quarter looking like a completely different team.Sophomore QB Braxton Kerr shook off his first-quarter jitters and connected with TE Ron Tiavaasue for the Badger’s first touchdown of the 2019 campaign. After the defense forced a 3 and out, Kerr led the offense right back to the endzone, this time handing the ball off to RB Shammah Luani who ran 27 yards for the touchdown to take the lead 17-13.The defense continued to give Garden City QB Nate Cox trouble, forcing another 3 and out, giving an opportunity for the Badger’s to add 3 points with another field goal. WR Keashawn McCoy came up with a big play, going 43 yards and a touchdown reception as the Badger’s put up 24 unanswered points leading 27-13 with 1 quarter left to play.But the 2018 NJCAA National Championship runner-ups were not going to go down without a fight. Garden City managed to score two touchdowns in the last few minutes of the 4th quarter, tying the game at 27 apiece.Mitchell’s characteristic no-huddle offense would prove valuable with just under 2 minutes left and needing to score. Kerr found McCoy and redshirt Freshman WR Hunter Harris for first downs. McCoy would pick up another first down catch to set up Pizano for the game-winning field goal, sealing the Badger’s season opener in dramatic fashion with a win.Sophomore DL Shad Pulsipher had a monster game on the defensive side of the ball, recording 2 sacks resulting in a loss of 15 yards. Freshmen LB Owen Fa’amoe and DL Tevita Fotu also had 1 sack each. Sophomore LB Jeremiah Ieremia led the team with 8 tackles.Braxton Kerr had 24 completions out of 38 attempts, throwing for 377 yards and 2 touchdowns. Keashawn McCoy recorded 8 catches for 169 yards and 1 touchdown. Shammah Luani led the rushing game with 14 carries for 40 yards and a touchdown.“Our kids are resilient,” Coach Mitchell said in regards to the Badger’s hard-fought win. “They’ll play anyone, anywhere, anytime. Names, dates, and locations change, but our mindset stays the same. Just show up and play ball.”Snow College will prepare to take on No. 10 Butler Community College next Saturday in El Dorado, Kan., this Saturday, August 31st, at 6 p.m. MDT. Mitchell, who lost to Butler as a player in the 2007 NJCAA National Championship game in a double-overtime thriller, looks to get some revenge and record his second ever win as Head Coach.   The game can be heard on KMTI AM 650 & 95.1 FM beginning with a 5:30 pm pregame or online at midutahradio.com.center_img Mike Trainalast_img read more

Aker Energy commits to develop Pecan field offshore Ghana

first_img The Pecan field original plan involved a centralised FPSO. (Credit: Aker Energy) Offshore oil and gas operator Aker Energy has reiterated its commitment to developing the Pecan field located offshore Ghana in the Gulf of Guinea.The development of the field was put on hold in April 2020 due to plunging oil prices and the Covid-19 pandemic.However, Aker Energy said it is now assessing the feasibility of phased development of the Pecan field by implementing conceptual studies.The original plan involved a centralised floating production, storage and offloading (FPSO) vessel to support the development of the entire Pecan field, as well as tie-ins of all other area resources.According to the firm, the phased development and the utilisation of a redeployed FPSO vessel would substantially reduce the CAPEX. This would result in reduced breakeven cost.Aker Energy seeks to finalise FPSO candidate for redeployment at Pecan fieldAker Energy and partners are currently working on finalising FPSO candidate for redeployment on the basis of technical capabilities and costs.Aker Energy CEO Håvard Garseth said: “Although we have an altered timeline, we are on our way to finding a development concept with a breakeven price that is sustainable and resilient also in a low oil price environment.”As part of the phased approach, Aker Energy plans to commence production with the deployment of first FPSO over a subsea production system for the Pecan field.The work will be followed by the expansion to a second FPSO after a few years, with tie-ins of additional resources.Ghana Deputy Minister of Energy Dr Mohammed Amin Adam said: “Getting projects like the Pecan field in operation is key toward our mission of making Ghana a major producer in West Africa and Africa as a whole.”The field is operated by Aker Energy with 50% stake while other partners include Lukoil (38%), Fueltrade (2%) and Ghana National Petroleum Corporation (10%).Earlier this year, Aker Energy selected Fugro to provide geotechnical and geophysical survey services for the Pecan field. The Pecan field development was put on hold in April 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic and low oil priceslast_img read more

Purplebricks is now “the largest estate agent in the UK by listings”

first_imgThe City advisor and sole broker to Purplebricks, Zeus Capital, has claimed that the hybrid agent is now the largest estate agent in the UK by the number of listings on Rightmove.This is well ahead of recent claims by London investment firm Peel Hunt, which earlier this year said it would take another year to two years for Purplebricks to become the largest agent in the UK by market share.The new claim was made by Zeus Capital’s Research Director Robin Savage during a recorded interview with an investment website.Purplebricks says it has 16,498 properties for sale on Rightmove but won’t say how many properties it has sold since launch. Its largest competitor, Countrywide, said in its most recent trading update that it sold over 50,000 houses last year, but doesn’t reveal how many it has for sale.Not terribly happyDuring the interview, Robin Savage also claims that criticism of Purplebricks by agents is because the hybrid agent’s growth has come “at the cost of its competitors who are not terribly happy”.He also made several punchy predictions for Purplebricks including that Purplebricks is seven months ahead of Zeus Capital’s growth predictions for Local Property Expert recruitment.Robin went on to say that he believes Purplebricks will be in a good position to take even more market share during the crucial Spring market next year.He also says that he believes Purplebricks will make a profit of £30m during the full financial year, results for which are due to be revealed in mid-December, and that profits will increase to £45 million the next year.And, referring to recent criticism of Purplebricks’ handling of reviews about its service on TrustPilot, Robin said that “there made be the odd detractor who has difficulty selling their home for particular reasons – but there are considerably more happy customers than there are unhappy ones”.Robin also commented on Purplebricks’ Australian operation, which he believes will profitable next year only 15 months after it launched. largest estate agent in uk Purplebricks biggest estate agent in uk Robin Savage Zeus Capital October 3, 2017Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?
