Oakridge rushed for 496 yards and emerged with an impressive 61-27 victory over North Muskegon on Thursday in the West Michigan Conference opener for both teams.Running back Leroy Quinn led the way for Oakridge with 228 yards and three touchdowns on 20 carries.“I had a lot of confidence in the guys up front,” said Oakridge coach Cary Harger about his offensive line, which blew open a lot of big holes for the runners. “I know what they are capable of and they were up for the challenge.”The first quarter provided many challenges for the Eagles.Oakridge’s No. 3 Dylan Coffman pushes his way into the end zone for Oakridge. Photo/Leo ValdezNorth Muskegon took the opening kickoff and drove 64 yards on eight plays to take a 6-0 lead on Chandler Edward’s 3-yard touchdown run just 3:28 into the game.Oakridge responded less than three minutes later when Quinn rolled into the end zone from a yard out. The PAT was good, and the Eagles led 7-6.The next Norse possession was a two-man affair. First quarterback Mack Young hit TJ McKenzie for a nine-yard gain, then they connected on the following play for a 43-yard touchdown strike.Young passed to Edwards for the two-point conversion, capping a drive that lasted all of 40 seconds, and the Norse led 14-7.“We knew we were in for a game with the athletes they have,” Harger said about North Muskegon. “We knew they had weapons to take advantage of, and they did. We just kept plugging along.”While the Young-to-McKenzie connection gave the Norse a temporary lead, the Eagles turned to Quinn on the ensuing drive.It turned out to be a three-play drive, all Quinn carries, covering 63 yards. He finished it with a 38-yard rumble up the middle for a score. A missed extra point left North Muskegon with a 14-13 lead with 3:39 left in the opening frame.The Norse took the ensuing kickoff and drove right down the field into scoring position. But facing a 4th-and-goal at the Oakridge 2, Chandler Edwards was stopped for no gain to end the quarter and give the ball back to the Eagles.The Oakridge offense then took control, scoring 20 unanswered points, starting with a nine-play, 98 yard drive that resulted in a two-yard score by quarterback Koleman Wall.Oakridge running back Leroy Quinn eyes up the field on the rush. Photo/Leo ValdezJalen Hughes finished the second quarter with two TD runs (four yards and one yard) for the Eagles, and the hosts went to the locker room with a 33-14 lead.“Their offense just doesn’t stop,” Norse coach Larry Witham said. “We knew it would be tough to stop what they do offensively. We had them on their heels a little bit, but hats off to them, we couldn’t stop them.”Hughes added his third score of the game 1:43 into the third quarter, giving Oakridge a 40-14 lead.North Muskegon continued to battle. Young found McKenzie with a 23-yard touchdown pass to cut the Oakridge lead to 40-21 with 7:37 left in the third quarter.After Wall scored from two yards out to put Oakridge up 47-21, Young found Jesse Cooke with a 48 TD pass to get the Norse back to within 47-27.Blake Masterman’s one-yard touchdown run gave Oakridge a 54-27 lead at the end of the third quarter, and Quinn scored from six yards out on the opening play of the fourth quarter for the final Eagles score.“Our offensive line was phenomenal,” Quinn said. “When we fell behind, coach said it was time to work and he kept feeding us the ball.”Masterman finished with 117 yards on 12 carries and Hughes added 112 yards on 13 carries for the Eagles, who had 541 yards of total offense.North Muskegon finished with minus-38 rushing yards on 22 carries, but Young completed 17 of 24 passes for 395 yards. McKenzie had eight catches for 211 yards while Cooke finished with three for 92 yards.Oakridge, how 2-0 overall and 1-0 in conference play, will visit Shelby next week.

The highs and lows of AEW’s All Out

first_imgThe final pay-per-view before All Elite Wrestling makes their debut on TNT took place when All Out hit the Sears Centre Arena in the suburbs of Chicago. An old face became the inaugural AEW world champion, arguably the best pro wrestler in the world came up short yet again and tag teams proved that this promotion will offer something that the House that McMahon built won’t as The Young Bucks and Lucha Bros tore the roof off with a hellacious ladder match. MORE: Join DAZN and watch more than 80 fights a year​ But not everything was great, as AEW still has work to do in a few areas before heading into the “Wednesday Night Wars” with WWE’s NXT brand. Nevertheless, the budding promotion has provided just enough to prove to be a viable alternative to World Wrestling Entertainment where fans will most certainly be in tune with what AEW has up their sleeve once they become a weekly program in October. With that, we take a look at the highs and lows of AEW’s All Out.The HighsAEW crowned the right championSome immediately took to social media to complain that a 48-year-old Chris Jericho had no business defeating a man two decades his junior to become the company’s first world champion. They are wrong.You’re Welcome @IAmJericho #AEWWorldChampion #AEWrestling #AEW pic.twitter.com/ewFkyq0qKM— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) September 1, 2019Dead wrong. Chris Jericho is exactly what this company needs as their champion heading into television. The reasons are pretty simple to understand. For one, every pro-wrestling promotion needs a great heel and understands that there is far more juice in the babyface chasing the title than having the good guy already at the top of the mountain. What Jericho provides is a recognizable face that can reel in the lapsed fan while also being charismatic enough to carry a feud with some of the younger talents on the roster. You can best believe that whoever dethrones Jericho will have earned it. Until then, Jericho should carry the title long enough for the fans to beg for a title change. The age doesn’t matter as much as the talent behind the wrestler who is holding that lofty spot. It’s also important to note that Adam Page’s time will come. But he’s not well known enough just yet and still learning the ropes on how to cut an effective promo. Page will be a star, just give it some time so it feels earned rather than a situation where fans will say that The Elite are only looking out for themselves. The Young Bucks and Lucha Bros showcased a fantastic tag team divisionWhat AEW will offer that the WWE simply doesn’t care about is an excellent tag team division that is far more than two random singles stars teaming up. What we saw between The Young Bucks and Lucha Bros is exactly what the alternative should provide. It was a brutal ladder match that featured a death-defying Canadian Destroyer off the top of a ladder and through a table and a host of other stunts that had the fans on the edge of their seat. With the AAA tag team titles likely disappearing from the scene now that the Lucha Bros have taken them back into their possession, the focus will shift to a tournament to crown AEW’s inaugural tag team champions. THEY HAVE ARRIVED! #AEWALLOUT – Available on @BRlive https://t.co/bi2xiRzUST #AEW #AllEliteWrestling pic.twitter.com/Zw0vbIFiAz— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) September 1, 2019The division is stacked with talent and the addition of the tag team formally known as L.A.X. has only pushed it further ahead of the competition. Add in the fact that Private Party are set to be breakout stars and you have a division that could be the reason why people tune in to AEW over NXT.Cody has it all figured outCody Rhodes may not be as talented in the ring as Kenny Omega, PAC, Page or the Young Bucks, but he’s found his niche as a character wrestler who relies on storytelling and theatrics over high spots and brilliant chain wrestling. It’s a strange twist of irony considering that he’s essentially become the Triple H of AEW with his dramatic entrances. Fortunately, he’s decided that he doesn’t need to be the main event and has allowed the other talent on the roster to shine.THE ENFORCER! Double A #ArnAnderson just evened the odds with a spinebuster. #AEWALLOUT – Available on @BRlive https://t.co/bi2xiRzUST #AEW #AllEliteWrestling pic.twitter.com/3gDdFUeNgZ— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) September 1, 2019He is now three for three in AEW PPV matches as his bouts with Nick Aldis (All-In), Dustin Rhodes (Double or Nothing) and Shawn Spears (All Out) have all been either very good or great. He’s found the formula and it is clicking with audiences.The LowsLackluster entrance themesOutside of Cody, Omega, The Young Bucks, Jericho and Page, the entrance music and video packages for the rest of the AEW talent is supremely lacking. There should be no expectation that AEW would eclipse the fantastic presentation that WWE provides, but what is being delivered is unacceptable for a company that is about to head to television. Simply put, AEW needs a music director and somebody who can put together engaging video packages that set the tone for the talent as they head to the ring. There’s nothing worse than the talent being unable to get over with the crowd because of how they are presented. Which leads us to…The Dark Order needs a rebootFrom the moment that Evil Uno and Stu Grayson appeared at Double or Nothing, they were doomed. They were given the grand debut at AEW’s second PPV that fell on deaf ears because few knew who they were and even fewer understood what the hell their gimmick was. To make matters worse, the tag team formally known as Super Smash Brothers were excellent on the indie scene. But everything that made Uno and Grayson great has been stripped away. Instead of having Uno punish his opponents with his size and Grayson provide the athleticism, they have kind of meandered in their matches and lacked the dominance needed to overcome a gimmick that has fallen flat on its face.  They were gifted with a hot crowd after the Omega-Pac match and proceeded to suck the air out of the arena when they beat Best Friends for a first-round bye in the tag tournament. Not all was lost as Orange Cassidy’s appearance sent a jolt through the crowd. Nevertheless, Uno and Grayson could use some time away to have a reboot that will reintroduce them at some point after the company makes their debut on TNT. Because, right now, they are dead on arrival. . @orangecassidy came here to party the only way he knows how. #AEWALLOUT – Available on @brlive https://t.co/YmpiGk2IQy #AEW #AllEliteWrestling pic.twitter.com/N7g9DIcarv— All Elite Wrestling (@AEWrestling) September 1, 2019Show LengthWhat makes NXT TakeOver such a special show is the length. It’s never over three hours and the matches all have meaning. With “The Buy-In” preshow, “All Out” clocked in at a whopping five hours. In the arena, you could feel the fatigue that set in during the Dark Order vs. Best Friends match and continued into the competent, but underwhelming affair between Riho and Hikaru Shida. To be clear, it wasn’t the match that underwhelmed, but the energy for a match between two women that American audiences don’t know very well.Shave those two matches off and you have an excellent paced event. But the promotion has made every effort to get as much talent on the card as they can. Maybe that will change once they go to television and some of these feuds can be blown off during the week. As of right now, the PPVs are doing more to wear the crowd down than keep them engaged. The term “less is more” certainly applies here.last_img read more

Three takeaways from Steelers’ road win over Chargers

first_imgThe undrafted rookie out of Samford performed admirably, completing 15 of 20 throws for 132 yards, one touchdowns and one interception.With the loss, the Chargers fall to 2-4 and are off to a disappointing start after many experts pegged them as contenders in the AFC before the start of the season. Related News Pittsburgh (2-4) heads into its bye week while the Chargers travel to Tennessee to take on the Titans (2-4) in Week 7.Three takeaways from Steelers’ win over the ChargersChargers’ early miscues cost themAfter the two teams traded punts to start the game, things got off the rails for LA.A backward pass from Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers went over the head of running back Melvin Gordon. That’s when Steelers’ linebacker Devin Bush scooped up the live ball and took it to the house to get Pittsburgh on the board just under four minutes into the game. Devin Bush Jr. is turning into a special player for the Steelers 👀 @_Dbush11 pic.twitter.com/VC44ueuRXR— The Checkdown (@thecheckdown) October 14, 2019Four plays later, it was Bush again who intercepted a tipped pass from Rivers that set up another touchdown by the Steelers’ offense on the ensuing drive. DEVIN BUSH IS TAKING OVER SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL pic.twitter.com/ErSu4Qj7jV— The Checkdown (@thecheckdown) October 14, 2019At the end of the first quarter, Pittsburgh was up 14-0 and it never looked back.Steelers’ defense was relentlessWhile Bush was all over the Chargers early forcing two turnovers, the Steelers’ defensive unit as a whole was stifling all night.Pittsburgh’s defense held LA’s offense to two punts, a fumble, an interception and a missed field goal on its first five drives of the night. The Chargers’ rushing attack was also nonexistent as the Steelers allowed just 32 yards on the ground. It wasn’t until the fourth quarter when LA managed to put its first points on the board on a 38-yard field goal by kicker Chase McLaughlin. The defense then sealed the win after intercepting Rivers with 41 seconds remaining in the game. James Conner was Mr. Reliable for PittsburghWhether it was in the air or on the ground, Conner came up big for the Steelers when they needed some yards.Almost half of Hodges’ completions on the night were to Conner, who caught seven passes for 78 yards and one touchdown.
