DEARBORN COUNTY, Ind. — An Aurora man was arrested on charges related to last week’s crash that killed a Moores Hill man. Indiana State Police say, Rocky McMurray, 47, was arrested after the investigation into the crash was turned over to the Dearborn County Prosecutor’s office, which issued an arrest warrant. Police say the investigation determined that McMurray was intoxicated at the time of the crash, and tested over twice the legal limit on a breath test on the scene. McMurray was arrested on charges of Reckless Homicide, Operating While Intoxicated – Causing Death, and Operating While Intoxicated While Endangering a Person.
Ryder Cup star Graeme McDowell maintained his brilliant form at Sheshan International to remain in command at the halfway stage of the £5.4milllion WGC-HSBC Champions event in Shanghai. McDowell, who won all three of his matches in Europe’s victory over the United States in September, carded a second successive 67 to lie 10 under par, three shots ahead of Gleneagles team-mate Ian Poulter. The 35-year-old Northern Irishman fired five birdies and no bogeys and has now played his last 11 rounds at the venue in 49 under par after finishing third in 2011 and again 12 months ago. Poulter, who was runner-up to Dustin Johnson last year and won the title when it was staged at Mission Hills in 2012, birdied four of his last five holes to match McDowell’s 67. And double Masters champion Bubba Watson went one better with birdies at all five of the closing stretch in his 67 to finish six under alongside Japan’s Hiroshi Iwata, whose 65 was the best score of the week so far. McDowell won the US Open in 2010 but has yet to win one of the WGC events and told Sky Sports 4: ” It would be very special. The WGC’s are a special tier of events, there’s no doubt about that and this has always been one I had my eye on. This one and Doral (venue for the WGC-Cadillac Championship) are the two golf courses I feel I perform well on. “But this is a world-class field. They are bunching up behind me and I have to get out there tomorrow and keep the pedal down and position myself for Sunday and give myself a sniff on the back nine.” Asked to explain his remarkable scoring at Sheshan, McDowell added: ” I think it’s the fact you don’t have to hit it a long way, you have to be accurate and I like these greens. I read them well here, this course is always so well presented and I just enjoy playing it. ” I didn’t play as well as I did yesterday. I missed a lot more fairways, which is a big key on this golf course. You must find fairways to have a chance out there. I got lucky a couple of times and I made some good saves. “It wasn’t my best ball-striking round but I hung in there and I’m right where I want to be going into the weekend.” In contrast, Poulter was delighted with his performance in his second tournament with new Titleist clubs as he looked to put an injury-plagued campaign behind him. Press Association ” It was great. I played very, very solid,” said Poulter, who has slipped to 44th in the world rankings. “Probably the best I’ve played all year, which is very exciting. “It was a little frustrating the first 13 holes that I was missing chances, but four birdies in the last five holes, chances started to go in at the end, and I’m very happy. “I played with Graeme in the last round last year and he likes this golf course and played well, and I’ve had success around here as well. So if you’re within six shots, then you’ve got a great chance on Sunday.” Watson was just level par for his round after 13 holes but produced a brilliant finish with five birdies in a row, which included using his four wood to “chip” in from the fringe on the 17th after a more orthodox chip in on the previous hole. “It was a struggle,” said the left-hander, who finished eighth last year. “I hit some good shots but couldn’t make some putts. Hit some bad shots and made some putts. And then to finish that strong, it was a great round of golf, or great last five holes I guess you could say. “It’s kind of like where I was last year. I was hanging around right there going into the weekend so I look forward to the challenge. Hopefully I can play a little better this time on the weekend.” World number two Adam Scott had closed to within one of McDowell with four birdies in his first six holes, but ran up a quadruple-bogey nine on the eighth after a wild hook into the trees ended in an unplayable position and his fifth shot was stymied by a large rock in front of the green. The former Masters champion also double-bogeyed the ninth and dropped another shot on the 11th, but eagled the 14th and birdied the 16th in an eventful 72 that left him eight off the lead on two under.
It was far from plain sailing for the world number 385, who had entered the final day with a four-shot lead before a poor start allowed Thanyakon to go two shots clear after nine holes. A two-hour rain break seemed to stall the Thai’s momentum, however, and Harrington fought back to restore parity with his rival heading to the 18th. The Irishman skewed his tee shot to the edge of a hazard but Khrongpha failed to capitalise, finding the water with his second and registering a double-bogey six. Harrington recovered his composure, sinking a 15-foot putt to make par and secure a dramatic victory. Press Association Padraig Harrington held off a late challenge from Thailand’s Thanyakon Khrongpha to win the Asian Tour’s Indonesia Open by two shots on Sunday. Ireland’s triple major winner came through a stuttering start to the final round and then a thrilling 18th hole to card a winning total of 16-under-par 268. The victory is Harrington’s first at a full field tournament since he lifted the Johor Open title in 2010.

…Fruta Conquerors trounce Lady Panthers; Santos wins via walk over from PoliceFRUTA Conquerors romped to their third win in as many matches and, in the process, handed Lady Panthers their first loss when action in the GFF-Always Championship Cup 2019 continued on Sunday last at the GFF National Training Centre, Providence, East Bank Demerara.It was another successful day for the Fruta ladies as they emerged 5-0 winners, led by a brace each from Tiandi Smith and Abiosi Heywood.The other match yesterday saw Santos Football Club taking full points from the Guyana Police Force (GPF) via the walk over route; it was Santos’ first points and the GPF’s fourth successive loss.Yesterday’s match was anticipated to be a keen affair between the two best teams in the competition, but it did not turn out that way as Conquerors stormed out of the blocks from the opening whistle to score on the first run down; Lakeisha Pearson netting the fastest goal of the league so far– in the first minute.From that point, the Conquerors team did not relent and took full advantage of Lady Panthers not having their leading player, Shavey Reuben, due to studies at UG. Before the end of the first half of 30 minutes, Conquerors were already up 4-0.Tiandi Smith netted the first of her brace in the 8th minute after which Abiosi Heywood took over proceedings with strikes in the 13th and 22nd minutes.The second half saw Lady Panthers putting a more steady performance to the extent that Conquerors only found the back of the nets once; Smith completing her double in the 40th minute.Lady Panthers did produce a few chances of their own but were unable to crack the airtight Fruta Conquerors backline which had not conceded a goal in their three matches whilst scoring a total of 23 goals to date.Smith is the leading scorer of the league with eight goals– a helmet-trick and two doubles. Matches will continue this weekend.

Eric Devendorf, the former Syracuse guard who is in Boise, Idaho, with the Stampede of the NBA Development League, firmly believes the allegations are untrue. He refuses to believe that Fine, an associate head coach with the SU men’s basketball team, molested young boys. ‘I think it’s a lie,’ Devendorf said. ‘ … I’ve been to his house numerous times. I’m good friends with his son and his family. Bernie is a great person, and I was always able to come back and talk to him. He did a lot of things for me off the court besides basketball, so it’s not even in his character to even do something like that. It seems like a lie to me, the whole thing seems real fishy.’ Like many others, Devendorf was shocked when he heard the news and discussed the event with friends and family back in Syracuse. He questioned why Bobby Davis, a former ball boy for the Orange in the 1980s, would come out nearly 30 years after the alleged molestations after an investigation was already completed in 2005. He also found it ‘fishy’ that the only other person to come forward and claim to be molested was Michael Lang, a stepbrother of Davis.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text ‘First of all, they’re related, so they’re obviously trying to stick up for each other,’ Devendorf said. ‘It just seems like the guy is trying to get attention. Bernie has never been accused of anything like that, no one has ever seen it.’ And that, according to Devendorf, is the big difference between this situation and the sex abuse scandal at Penn State. Jerry Sandusky, a former defensive coordinator for the Nittany Lions, was seen allegedly raping a 10-year-old boy in the team’s shower facility by then-graduate assistant Mike McQueary. But that never happened to Fine. No one ever witnessed the alleged molestations. Not even Boeheim, Devendorf said. ‘The Penn State thing is a whole different issue,’ Devendorf said. ‘(Sandusky) was seen doing stuff to kids, and Bernie hasn’t ever been seen or anything like that. So it’s just a whole bunch of nonsense to me. ‘Coach Boeheim has been around Bernie longer than everybody. I’m sure if something like this took place, he would have been notified of it or something like that. And he hasn’t seen anything. Coach Boeheim has Bernie’s back, and I do too. Bernie’s a great person, and he’s been great to me and my family.’ Devendorf said that he was probably closest with Fine of all the players on the team during his time at Syracuse. He said Fine helped him both on and off the court, and continues to do so to this day. This past summer, Devendorf was in Syracuse with his family and working out in preparation for the D-League. He said he ate dinner at Fine’s house multiple times over the summer, even bringing his daughter over to visit. Devendorf said he thinks Fine was getting closer to retirement anyway, perhaps within the next few years. Now, though, his reputation as one of the most widely respected assistant coaches will have an asterisk attached to it, according to Devendorf. ‘It’s definitely going to put a tarnish on him either way it goes, because with something like that, it’s pretty serious allegations,’ he said. ‘It really sucks that somebody would come out and say something like that, because it’s definitely not a good thing to have over your head. ‘It just seems like a whole bunch of nonsense to me, and I definitely support coach.’ firstname.lastname@example.org
Freshman forward Penelope Hocking has scored 6 goals and recorded four assists as a Trojan. She is also a member of the Under-20 Women’s National Team. (Emily Smith | Daily Trojan)Now halfway through Pac-12 conference play, the No. 2 women’s soccer team will head to Pullman, Wash. on Saturday to take on No. 19 Washington State.After beating Arizona 2-0 and Arizona State 3-1 last weekend, the Trojans look to continue their winning streak and improve upon their overall record of 11-1-1. USC has conceded 5 goals this season, compared to scoring 36. They have outshot their opponents in all 13 matches. Aside from their loss against No. 2 Stanford on Sept. 30, the Trojans are undefeated with 10 shutouts so far. The Trojans have consistently been the first to put points on the board, dominating possession and controlling the pace of the game. They have held opponents to an average of .375 goals per game this season, the best in the Pac-12. Redshirt sophomore goalie Kaylie Collins has seven shutouts, the most in the conference.The Cougars (10-2-0) are coming off a two-game losing streak, their most recent loss being against Utah this past Sunday. The Utes pulled off a 1-0 upset in overtime with a converted penalty kick, handing Washington State its second loss of the season. The Cougars outshot the Utes 9-8, but could not find the back of the net for the first time this season.Coming off two undefeated home games this season, the Women of Troy will hit the road again. “Anytime you go on the road into an environment … where a team is feeling confident, and they are feeling very good at home, we’ve got to make sure we lock in and really focus,” head coach Keidane McAlpine said.Even though the Trojans beat the Cougars 2-1 in last year’s match, McAlpine said that Washington State is a strong team this season and will present a challenge.“They can score, and they can defend, and teams like that are very dangerous,” McAlpine said.The Trojans will prepare for competitive offensive players like Washington State junior forward Morgan Weaver, who has 7 goals this season, tied with USC’s top scorer senior forward Leah Pruitt. Weaver ranks ninth in the country with an average of 5.08 shots per game. Junior defender Maddy Haro ranks second in the nation in assists with 10 and will put up a tough offensive front against the Trojan defense under the leadership of Collins and senior defender Ally Prisock.After a double-header weekend, the Trojans took a rest day before heading into practice to prepare for their game against the Cougars.“Now that we are done with the weekend, we just want to take a good rest day and get recovered,” redshirt sophomore attacker Savannah DeMelo said earlier this week. “And then we want to go into practice working hard and getting ready for Washington State, because we know that they are a great opponent and it’s just going to keep our momentum going into the next [Pac-12] games.”Saturday’s game will be broadcast on Pac-12 Network at 7 p.m.
