First-time winners dominate at Algona

first_imgBy Greg Grabianowski ALGONA, Iowa (July 19) – Tad Reutzel and Isaac Hill earned their first feature wins of the season at Algona Raceway on Saturday evening. Chad Palmer and Dalton Kron also grabbed their first feature win of the year at the track with Matt Hoeft earning his second win of the season. Dustin Smith took the early IMCA Xtreme Motor Sports Modified lead and had a straightaway advantage before Reutzel reeled him in. Hill was the winner in the caution-slowed IMCA Sunoco Hobby Stock main after drawing a front row start. Palmer came from the inside of the fourth row to take the double checkered flags in the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature. The yellow flag was also frequently displayed in the Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature but Hoeft overcame all of those delays to earn his second local feature win of the season. Kron steered his No. 99 rig into the winner’s circle from the outside of row two in the Mach-1 Sport Compact go.last_img read more

Pollard urges attention to detail ahead of St Kitts T20 double-header

first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada, (CMC) – Captain Kieron Pollard has urged his side to pay attention to the small details and improve their bowling discipline, as they seek to come from behind and win the three-match Twenty20 series against Ireland.Labelling those areas as the “one percenters”, Pollard said doing the small things properly was often the difference between winning and losing a cricket match, and said the Windies had been guilty of not paying attention to these details.West Indies slumped to a narrow four-run defeat to Ireland in Wednesday’s opening T20 International here, to leave themselves with the challenge of winning the next two matches in St Kitts at the weekend in order to avoid a third straight T20 series defeat.“The attitude of some of the guys in the field –  that cost nothing. It’s just a matter of showing up for 120 balls and again, the discipline was out the window again with the wides and no-balls,” Pollard pointed out.“(There were problems with) backing up and misfielding and when we’re batting, not having that urgency running between the wickets.“We know we’re a good power-hitting team but again when the singles are there, when the twos are there we need to run hard between the wickets and not just settle for one.“We saw that when Ireland were batting – they hit the ball to a fieldsman and they ran and that is something we didn’t do. At the end of the day, it’s all a learning experience. I was very, very disappointed we didn’t get over the line because we were in the chase for most of the way.He added: “But it was good to see the batsmen coming out with that sort of intent and that sort of intensity. We have a couple things to speak about (as a team) and now we move on to St Kitts.”West Indies were under pressure from early as Paul Stirling (95) and Kevin O’Brien (48) smashed a record 93 inside the first power-play, before going on to add 154 for the first wicket.Though West Indies eventually pulled the scoring back, they found themselves chasing 209 which proved insurmountable, as only opener Evin Lewis with 53 and Pollard with 31, managed to really get going.“Ireland came out and came hard and they took the initiative in the first 10 overs or so but I thought the bowlers really came back well when we decided to bowl one side of the wicket and tried to execute our skills,” Pollard said.“I thought Hayden Walsh in all the carnage that was taking place – he bowled four overs on the trot – was consistent with his line and length as well. So there are still some positives in the bowling aspect but we need to execute our skills properly.”He continued: “Batting-wise, all the way through we were in with a chance but in the last overs we let it slip.”last_img read more
