season in net. The duo earned the NHLs
« on: July 06, 2018, 06:06:09 AM »
DURBAN, South Africa -- Joost Luiten holed out for an albatross on the way to a 5-under 67 Friday and a share of the second-round lead with Louis Oosthuizen and Tommy Fleetwood at the Volvo Golf Champions. Taron Johnson Jersey . The Dutchman holed his 7-iron from 248 yards for a two on the par-5 No. 10 at Durban Country Club. His shot pitched near the front fringe, took a couple of bounces across the green and rolled home. "The ball just pitched exactly where I wanted it to, in front of the green and rolled right up to the flag and disappeared in the hole," said Luiten, who turned 28 on Tuesday. "So, yeah, it was a good feeling. Ive never had an albatross before and now at 7 under par I am in a great position for the weekend." Luiten is at 7-under 137 total alongside defending champion Oosthuizen (69) and Fleetwood (67). There was only one albatross -- or double eagle -- on the European Tour all of last season. Chris Doak got it at the Madeira Islands Open in May. Oosthuizen made four birdies and a bogey, while Fleetwood had six birdies and a single dropped shot. Victor Dubuisson (69) was alone in fourth at 6 under. Luiten, who qualified for the elite 36-player field in Durban by capturing the KLM Open, was 3 under when he made his albatross and immediately jumped into a share of the lead at 6 under. He also birdied the last. Oosthuizen is looking to successfully defend a European Tour title for the second time in his career after winning the Africa Open in 2011 and 2012. "Im delighted with my position and luckily its the type of golf course where you can get away with it by not hitting a lot of drivers or 3-woods," the 2010 British Open winner said. "So I just need to keep it together for the weekend." Fleetwood earned his place in the field by winning the Johnnie Walker Championship at Gleneagles in September and he matched Luitens 67 to move into contention for a second tour title. First round leader Raphael Jacquelin (73) remains in contention despite a slip into a share of sixth place with former British Open winner Darren Clarke (71). Padraig Harrington shot a 71 after his caddie collapsed mid-round and was treated for dehydration. A photographer and then an Irish tourist stepped in to carry his bag. Jim Kelly Bills Jersey . UCI President Brian Cookson said Wednesday the commission will investigate allegations "that the UCI has been involved in wrongdoing in the past -- allegations which have done so much to hurt the credibility of the UCI and our sport. Phillip Gaines Bills Jersey . Rico dove horizontally to meet Andoni Iraolas precise long cross from the right to score his second league goal of the season in the 33rd minute. Two minutes later, Aritz Aduriz netted Bilbaos second when he raced forward and pounced on a poor clearance by Villarreal defender Mateo Musacchio, sending a low shot rolling past goalkeeper Sergio Asenjo. . -- Howie Kendrick had a two-run single in his first game batting leadoff this season, Chris Iannetta hit a pair of RBI singles and the Los Angeles Angels beat Cleveland 6-4 Tuesday night, sending the Indians to their fifth straight defeat.DENVER -- Patrick Roy was at a rare loss for words. The subject that silenced the Hall of Fame goaltender? Himself and possible records. These days, Roy is far more interested in keeping his team rolling than setting records. But they sort of go hand-in-hand at the moment. The Colorado Avalanche won their sixth straight with a 3-2 win over the Dallas Stars on Tuesday night, allowing Roy to tie the NHL mark for victories to start a coaching career. He shares the record with Mario Tremblay, who won his first six games with Montreal in 1995-96, a team Roy played for before being traded to the Avalanche later that season. Tremblay played a big role in the trade after not pulling Roy out of a game soon enough in a lopsided loss. Now, theyre linked -- again -- in league history. For the moment, anyway. Roy can break that mark Thursday against the Detroit Red Wings, one of Roys biggest rivals as a player. "I dont know what to say. And that doesnt happen to me very often," Roy said. "I certainly appreciate more the way our guys played than appreciate breaking a record or something like this. "Im not really excited about that record, to be honest with you. Im excited about looking at the way the team has been playing, how hard the team has been working." Matt Duchene scored twice and Semyon Varlamov stopped 39 shots as the Avs moved within a win of tying the franchises best start. The organization was 7-0 in 1985-86 as the Quebec Nordiques. Another possible mark to set. Not that Roy looks at it quite like that. "Were playing with a lot of confidence," he said. "We dont want to lose our confidence." Rich Peverley and Cody Eakin had goals for the Stars, who dropped their second straight road game despite outshooting Avs 41-26. Dallas pulled Dan Ellis with more than a minute remaining, but couldnt score the equalizer on Varlamov, who turned back Alex Chiassons final shot with 1 second remaining. Varlamov came up big all third period, including a point-blank stop of Tyler Seguin. "I guess goaltending is crucial in this league," Roy said, grinning. "You need some good goaltending every night, thats what weve been lucky with. ... Thats a game where Varly -- that was a steal from him." Jamie Benn couldnt agree more. "He playeed another great game and sometimes you have to give them credit," Benn said. Trent Murphy Bills Jersey. Duchene earned the 200th point of his NHL career with the winning goal 14:18 into the second period. With Varlamov on the bench for an extra skater following a delayed penalty against Dallas, Duchene flew into the zone and beat Ellis with a shot just inside the top of the net. That goal came 3:20 after Eakin tied the game with a power-play goal, the first the Avs have allowed this season. Jan Hejda gave the Avs a 2-1 lead with 7 seconds left in the opening period when the defenceman took a shot from near the blue line and it deflected through the legs of Ellis. A few minutes earlier, Duchene intercepted an errant pass down low and beat Ellis with a shot over the goalies right shoulder. Dallas also capitalized on a turnover for its first goal, when Gabriel Landeskog lost the puck while making a move toward the net. Seguin quickly corralled it and sent a perfect pass ahead to Peverley, who beat Varlamov with a low liner 4:18 into the game. It was the first goal Colorado has allowed in the first period all season. "It was probably our best skating game, probably our best game on a chance sheet and Varlamov came up with beauties," Stars coach Lindy Ruff said. Varlamov and Jean-Sebastien Giguere have been difficult to beat this season in net. The duo earned the NHLs second star of the week after combining for three wins. Energized by the excitable Roy, the Avalanche have been playing with plenty of confidence this season. Hes given them a simple message -- play with passion -- and theyve run with it. "You can tell hes been a player, because he yells the same stuff were yelling to each other," Landeskog said. "The passion and how calm he is, both on the bench and here, in meetings -- he spreads that calm." Roy, calm? He nearly knocked over a glass partition when he was screaming at Anaheims Bruce Boudreau after a 6-1 win to open his Colorado coaching career. "He might raise his voice, but hes still calm," Landeskog said. NOTES: The Stars placed G Kari Lehtonen on injured reserve, retroactive to Friday. ... The two goals are the most Colorado has allowed this season. ... The Avalanche are now 6-0 like Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos.
