“Players make plays, and players win games,” is a favorite motto of Wisconsin football head coach Gary Andersen.But Andersen said Monday at his weekly press conference his players were not given that opportunity Saturday night against Arizona State after officials let time expire without allowing the UW offense the opportunity to run a final play.Redshirt sophomore quarterback Joel Stave ran off the right hash mark to the center of the field with 18 seconds left, took a knee and placed the ball down, attempting to set up a game-winning field goal. The officials subsequently did not let the Badgers spike the ball to stop the clock and did not penalize an ASU defensive linemen for laying on the ball, resulting in a 32-30 loss for UW.“I am proud of the way our kids played at Arizona State, it was a very competitive football game,” Andersen said.“All we’re looking for is accountability in this situation and an opportunity to let the kids finish the games, which has been said many times before, and let them be the deciding factor.”Andersen said he would coach exactly the same way if they found themselves in a similar situation again. He also said a similar scenario is practiced throughout spring football and training camp.“First of all, let’s make it real clear, he did take a knee,” Andersen affirmed. “By rule he does not have to take a knee…The idea of putting the ball on the ground is to give the officials the opportunity to get the ball spotted quicker and cleaner.”PAC-12 Commissioner Larry Scott released a brief statement Monday morning describing in detail what occurred in the final 18 seconds during Saturday night’s contest. The report concluded, “We’ve determined the officials fell short of the high standard in which Pac-12 games should be managed.”Andersen was asked whether or not the statement was sufficient, to which he replied “To me personally, no.”“It doesn’t change the outcome, obviously” he said. “But it’s accountability, which at the end of the day is what we ask for.”Andersen said he is moving forward from the game and the situation is one which the players must understand and learn from. He was also very pleased with how the players handled themselves.“The way they carried themselves after the game was good, especially through the upperclassmen,” Andersen said.Regarding the game before the final few seconds, he said he was impressed with the performance of the special teams, an area that was a key concern of Wisconsin’s entering the game.“On special teams we won the game,” Andersen said. “We made some huge plays.”Anderson was especially pleased with the touchdown the Badgers’ special teams scored in the second quarter after ASU botched the snap on a punt. He praised senior nose tackle Beau Allen, who recovered the bad snap in the end zone for a touchdown.“That’s a big time game out of Beau Allen,” Andersen hailed. “He was active. He was physical. He played a bunch of reps. He appeared to be in very good shape.“If he plays like that, he’s going to have an opportunity to move on and play at the next level.”Looking ahead to the Big TenAndersen and his squad look forward to opening the Big Ten regular season with Purdue as the first conference foe coming to Madison this Saturday. The Boilermakers and first-year head coach Darrell Hazel are coming off a tough 31-24 loss to Notre Dame this past Saturday and look to display their new pro-style offense.“There’s a lot of moving pieces to the pro-style offense,” Andersen said. “I like both running backs … number one [Akeem Hunt] and number 20 [Dalyn Dawkins].”
Kamloops was up 2-0 when some strong checking by Julia Burkart and Amiee Montpellier created a loose ball for Bomber speedster Hanna Quinn to pounce and slide a low shot into the Kamloops goal cutting the lead in half. It stayed that way for much of the second half until late in the game, when Kamloops had a short corner and netted their third goal and a 3 – 1 win. “All – in – all not a bad game by the bombers they all played hard and in the end it was just inexperience and a short bench that got us,” said Walgren. “Next up was the host Oliver, always a tall order to come out with a win against them,” Walgren added.Even with a short bench and thanks to two Grade 8 girls from Trafalgar Jessica McLeod and Marisa Price, the Bombers scored first when speedy Hanna Quinn got a hold of a loose ball and scored on a partial breakaway. Oliver then pressed the Bomber midfield and backline and scored soon after tying the game 1-1. The Hornets then took the lead on a broken play as the lady bombers could not clear the ball and a low hard shot was deflected past the bomber keeper Ashley Hall who had no chance on the play, for the 2 -1 win. Saturday the Bombers did not start until later in the day and that extra rest seemed to help. First up was Penticton Lakers.Rookie Page Meisner scored off of a goalmouth scramble before Hanna Quinn doubled LVR’s lead with some speedy running and great stick work.Penticton pressed the Bombers and got a goal late to make the game interesting at the end, but strong midfield play from Julia Burkart, Aimee Montpellier and backline play from Heather Potkins, Isabell Curiston, and Ashleigh McLean kept the Lakers at bay. LVR managed to pull even on the weekend by scoring a narrow 1-0 win over Princess Margret from Penticton.”Again strong Midfield play by Aimee Montpellier and Julia Burkart along with a solid back line with rookies Isabell Curiston, Ashleigh McLean and veteran Heather Potkins helped rookie keeper Ashleigh Hall preserve a 1 – 0 shutout,” Walgren said.Potkins scored LVR’s lone goal with a shot after some nice passing by Julia Burkart and Hanna Quinn during an LVR short corner. “All of the rookies, Keeper Ashley Hall, defence – Isabell Curiston, Ashleigh McLean, mids – Sienna Morningstar, Elissa Centrone, Aimee Montpellier, Jessica McLeod, forwards Paige Meisner, and Maria Gioveolioni played very well and showed great determination on Friday and Saturday, never stopping and always learning from the previous game,” Walgren said. Next up for the Bombers is a League game on Thursday against the very tough archrival J. Lloyd Crowe of Trail before the Bombers travel to Pass Creek for a Tournament hosted by Stanley Humphries Rockers of Castlegar Friday afternoon and Saturday. Bring on the High School Field Hockey season.The L.V. Rogers Bombers jumped into the campaign with both feet, finishing with a 2-2 during the annual trek to Oliver to compete in the South Okanagan Hornets High School Girl’s Field Hockey Tournament.”The team ended up with a 2 – 2 record, not bad considering we only went with eleven players and three of them were returning veterans from last year’s Provincial Consolation group win in Victoria,” said coach Bruce Walgren.Walgren said the Lady Bombers started out playing a very fast team from Kamloops. The Bombers were on the defensive for most of the game continuously stopping multiple Kamloops attacks. Rookie goalie Ashley Hall, along with defenders Heather Potkins, Isabell Curiston and Ashleigh Mclean did their best to move the ball up to Julia Burkart and Aimee Montpellier in the midfield but the Kamloops ladies were not giving an inch. Many hard fought battles took place in the back line and midfield.
