Scoring 21 goals in a football season isn’t bad these days. In fact, some defenders and midfielders may not reach that number during an entire career. But for a player over in Sweden it’s all in a day’s work. Just recently a player in one of Sweden’s lower divisions managed to thump 21 goals past the keeper during his team’s 30-0 victory. The scoring machine, who registered the equivalent of three hat tricks in the match, is a 25-year-old named Yanick Djouzi Manzizila and his achievement broke a 60-year-old record in the country.
Manzizila is a member of the Kongo United squad and they humiliated a team named Balrog Botkyrka Södertälje 30-0 during the match. However, it might not have been as bad as it sounds for Balrog, since they had three players ejected during the contest and had just eight players on the pitch when the final whistle blew t end their embarrassment. In fact, the team took the beating quite badly and after it was over they announced they were quitting the league. Perhaps it was for the best though, since the squad hadn’t earned a single point all campaign long.
American golfer Cameron Tringale tied for 33rd place at the recent USA PGA Championship at the Valhalla Golf Course in Louisville, Kentucky and took home $53,000 in winnings as well as 37 FedEx Cup points. However, a week after the tournament had ended he handed the money back as he felt he should have had another stroke added to his final score. The 26-year-old Tringale said he actually missed a putt on the par-three 11th hole in the final round at Valhalla.
Tringale added that he whiffed the tap-in putt and instead of being credited with a bogey four, he should actually have been charged five shots. Tringale contacted the America PGA and told them what happened on the hole. He claimed that his putter swung over top of the ball while approaching the hole before he tapped it in from three inches away. He said he swung over the ball it should have been recorded as an additional stroke.
David Wilson was drafted into the NFL just two years ago by the New York Giants, but has already been forced to retire from professional football. Wilson walked away from the game a couple of weeks ago following the advice of doctors. They told him he could suffer some irreparable damage if he aggravated a serious neck injury that he suffered during a contest just last October. However, the 23-year old hasn’t retired from all sport since he’s now turning to track and field.
When he retired, Wilson told the press, “I’ll set another dream and be great at that because I always look at trying to be great at whatever I do.” His next goal is to make the American Olympic team as a triple jumper for the 2016 Games in Rio de Janeiro. Wilson recently told a class full of high school students in New York City that he intends to head back to school to earn his degree and then start training for the Olympics.
It’s hard to believe that a soccer fan can invade the pitch in an English Premier League game these days due to all of the security and cameras around. However, not only did a young hooligan make it onto the pitch during a match between West Ham United and Tottenham Hotspur, he actually took a free kick for Spurs.
The man invaded the action on August 16 at Upton Park during the London derby on the opening day of the 2014/15 season. Tottenham was awarded a free kick just outside of West Ham’s 18-yard box at the 63 minute mark. West Ham set up a defensive wall and Tottenham’s Christian Eriksen prepared himself to take the kick. However, before he was able to do it the fan came out of nowhere and took it for him. The ball sailed over the net and into the crowd.
Major League Baseball implemented a few new rule changes this year with one of them being a video review system. In theory, managers are able to challenge an umpire’s call on certain plays and officials will review the video replay and then make a final ruling on it. This is all supposed to take place in a matter of a minute or two. However, in a recent game National League between the Miami Marlins and Cincinnati Reds, it took well over six minutes to come to a decision after video replay was called upon.
During the game Cincinnati had the bases loaded with one out in the eighth inning. Todd Frazier of the Reds hammered a pitch into right field where outfielder Giancarlo Stanton happened to catch it. Stanton then fired the ball into home plate as Zack Cozart broke for the plate after the ball was caught. The home-plate umpire ruled Cozart out after the catcher caught the ball and tagged him.
