Wilson’s late heroics lift Seahawks over Packers

After a shaky beginning, Russell Wilson got hot in the fourth quarter, Bobby Wagner and Seattle’s defense stymied Aaron Rodgers and the Seahawks stayed in the middle of the NFC playoff race. “We’ve been through so much throughout this season it was time to get over the hump,” Wagner said. “We’ve been down, we’ve been up, we’ve lost close games, we’ve won close games. It was time.” Wilson threw for 225 yards and his 15-yard touchdown pass to Ed Dickson with 5:08 left was the difference in the Seahawks’ 27-24 victory over the Green Bay Packers on Thursday night.

Red Sox’s Mookie Betts caps off winning year with MVP award

Mookie Betts is ready to become an ambassador for baseball, now that he’s won a batting title, World Series and Most Valuable Player award with Boston. “I enjoy being kind of a face around the game. I’ve kind of used this pedestal or whatever you want to say to spread knowledge that the game is fun,” he said Thursday after his runaway victory for the AL MVP award. Milwaukee’s Christian Yelich was close to a unanimous pick for the NL honour. A 26-year-old outfielder just like Betts, Yelich also won a batting championship and led his team to a division

Matt Wallace FINED £3,000 for slow play despite back-to-back Dubai birdies

This season’s triple Tour winning Wallace was adjudged to have taken too long to putt out for par on the ninth hole and this after bizarrely being timed in birdying both the seventh and eighth holes on the Earth Course. The Tour’s Chief Referee, Andy McFee, was waiting for Wallace as he headed to the scorer’s hut having ended his round by also birding four of his closing five holes. His round of 68 saw him share fifth place in the closing Rolex Series event. Wallace had been advised by McFee he was ‘on the clock’ during the time he

Federer beats Anderson & reaches ATP Finals semi-finals in London

Federer first lifted the season-ending title in 2003 but the last of his six wins was in 2011 Six-time champion Roger Federer beat Kevin Anderson 6-4 6-3 to secure his place in the semi-finals of the ATP Finals for the 15th time. Federer’s victory means he tops his group to boost his chances of avoiding world number one Novak Djokovic in the last four in London. The Swiss, 37, looked out of sorts when he lost his first match on Sunday but bounced back with two successive wins. South African Anderson had already won two matches to reach the semi-finals.

Prep boys golf: Fairfield, Monroe’s Gomia earn return trips to Division I district

CROSBY TWP. — 

Fairfield High School’s boys golf team is headed back to the Division I district tournament for another shot at some program history.

The Indians have been to state six times and won the Class AAA championship in 1979, but their last trip to Columbus came in 2001.

Junior Mason Hamilton led Fairfield to a third-place finish in the Cincinnati West sectional at Miami Whitewater Golf Course on Wednesday, giving the Tribe a spot in the district event Oct. 11 at Beavercreek Golf Club.

“We’re trying to get that reputation back with Fairfield golf,” Indians coach Nick Gray said. “When you think of some of the great coaches, teams and players that have come through Fairfield High School, we’re trying to get back there.”

Elder (307), St. Xavier (314), Fairfield (320) and Oak Hills (324) were Wednesday’s district-qualifying teams. The Indians tied for fourth in the Greater Miami Conference tournament and will square off with GMC rivals Lakota East, Mason and Oak Hills at district.

Can Fairfield advance to the state tourney?

“I’ve seen some of the shots and the scores that these guys have put together,” Gray said. “It’s golf, so it depends on the day. If they catch a heater, if they get hot, we’ll see.”

“If we all get our ‘A’ game going, all we need is four good scores,” Hamilton said. “I feel like I can trust these guys that can put some scores together. We’ve just got to keep our head in the game and stay motivated and focused.”

Fairfield High School junior Mason Hamilton talks about the Indians’ third-place finish Wednesday in the Division I sectional boys golf tournament at Miami Whitewater Golf Course.

Hamilton’s 40-38—78 led the way for the Indians on the par-71 course. A balanced effort followed him with junior Jared Hinkle (39-41—80), junior Chandler Kellum (40-41—81), sophomore Logan Murphy (41-40—81) and senior Adam Leugers (44-40—84).

“It’s pretty much right where we’ve been, give or take a few shots,” Gray said of Fairfield’s 320 total. “It was kind of an up-and-down round. With some of the holes where we struggled, I’m very proud of the kids. They kept it together mentally, hit some good shots and put together a pretty good team score.”

Fairfield started on the back nine and finished on the front. Hamilton had a 38 on the back and parred the first three holes on the front before carding a quadruple-bogey 8 on the fourth hole.

“It was a game-changer because my mental toughness kicked in,” Hamilton said. “I parred out to save the team, so I didn’t fall apart. I had to keep my composure. The course was playing better than I thought it would. The greens were faster than I expected.”

It’ll be the second straight trip to district for the Indians. That can also be said for Monroe junior Alex Gomia, who shot a 41-37—78 to lead all individuals not on a qualifying team.

Gomia had to win a sectional playoff last year to advance to district.

“I played a little better than last year,” Gomia said. “I still left some strokes out there, but I felt better and had more confidence than last year.”

He said his driver was the best part of his game Wednesday. His putting wasn’t exactly where he wanted it to be.

“The conditions were kind of tough,” Gomia said. “The greens were long and slow. Putts weren’t doing what you thought they were going to do.”

He had a 79 at last season’s district event at Glenview Golf Course. The highest state-qualifying score among the individuals was 73.

“I feel like I can make it to state this year,” Gomia said. “This will be a tougher course than last year at district. I feel like the scores are going to go up.”

Talawanda was seventh, Ross 10th, Monroe 11th and Hamilton 12th in Wednesday’s team standings.

Hamilton sophomore Braden Hubbard (42-40—82) and Talawanda sophomore Austin Goerss (41-41—82) were involved in a five-man playoff for the last two individual district spots, but neither advanced. Princeton’s Josh Dartnell and Harrison’s Sam Bischel will join Gomia and La Salle’s Drew Daly (38-42—80) at Beavercreek.

Junior Logan Hollander paced Ross with a 44-40—84.

The sectional medalist was Elder senior Evan DiSanto with a 36-36—72.
