    Girls golf: Making the most of one last shot

    For five DuPage County girls golfers, this weekend’s state tournament was a last chance to make an impact on the sport in high school.Hinsdale Central’s Roshannah Gaur, Wheaton Warrenville South’s Sarah Hauenstein, Waubonsie Valley’s Arushi Singh, Lake Park’s Nicole Hansen and Naperville North’s Lauren Nay made a final appearance at the large-class girls golf state finals this weekend at Hickory Point in Forsyth.Singh made the early move as her first-round 3-over 75 was soon conquered.“I was really playing well,” the Indiana signee said. “It was my goal to at least get into the top 10.”When the six members of the 12 qualifying teams and 39 at-large competitors completed play, New Trier — behind individual champion Penelope Tir — had another team title with a 10-shot victory, 603-613, over Barrington.Hinsdale Central was nine shots better collectively on Saturday in passing St. Charles North for its second consecutive major-consolation trophy in third at 619.Naperville North was eight shots better in second-round action to finish a stroke behind St. Charles North with a 626.Singh finished with a level-par 72 to tie Gaur for fifth at 147.“I knew once I got on my back — technically the front — I would have a lot more opportunities to make birdie,” said Singh, who came home with a 2-under 34.Hauenstein finished with a 6-over 148 to finish in an eighth-place tie with Duke University recruit Megan Furtney of St. Charles North.“It was definitely different,” Hauenstein said of the Tigers having their run of team appearances end. “We accomplished so much last year, so I can’t complain. I just wanted to have two scores that I could be proud of. I didn’t do anything insane.”Naperville North was looking for some second-round magic. Hannah Martin certainly set the tone for the Huskies as the sophomore rifled off three straight birdies to start her day. Nay and Mara Flaherty followed suit.The three teammates were a stroke apart as Flaherty led the way with a 75.“I knew the course a lot better (than last year),” Flaherty said. “I was playing a lot better going into the tournament. I got myself out of hard situations to get up and down.”Nay, following the 76 Martin posted, came home for a final time with a 77.“I think we ended the season on a positive note,” Nay said. “My thought process was that I would rather play worse on the first day than the second day.”Hansen was at the top of her game after winning the Wheaton Academy sectional earlier this week.“I was really confident coming in,” the Purdue signee said. “The girls who did well are good competition for me.”Hansen had rounds of 76-77 to tie for 23rd.“I was really upset with how I finished (on Saturday),” Hansen said. “I was 1-under through seven holes.”Naperville Central sophomore Emma Lim was seven shots higher after a first-round 75 to finish in the top 40.Glenbard West senior Samantha Moody was in a similar spot after a 78 and 82.The sole Class 1A qualifier, St. Francis’ Katherine Lemke, was top 20 in Decatur with a final-round 79.

    Jackson, Thorson carry Northwestern past Maryland 37-21

    COLLEGE PARK, Md. (AP) — With record-setting Justin Jackson leading the way, Northwestern got its groove back on offense and cruised to a much-needed victory.Jackson scored two touchdowns and ran for 171 yards to become the Wildcats' career rushing leader , and Northwestern beat Maryland 37-21 Saturday for its first Big Ten win of the season.Jackson has 4,639 yards on the ground over four seasons at Northwestern. He moved past Damien Anderson (4,485) to the top of the school list and also supplanted Anderson as the Wildcats' career leader in all-purpose yards with 5,350."It's special with Justin. It's unbelievable," coach Pat Fitzgerald said. "I think at times we all take for granted special players just because they're so consistent. But it seems like just yesterday that Justin came into our program, and now to have him at this mark, I'm incredibly proud of him and honored to be his coach."Clayton Thorson completed 27 of 49 passes for 293 yards and a touchdown to help the Wildcats (3-3, 1-2) avoid their first 0-3 start in the conference since 2013.Northwestern ran 93 plays and amassed 531 yards in a reversal of form following last week's 31-7 loss at home to Penn State."Great job bouncing back by our offense, especially our offensive line," Fitzgerald said. "I think they shut the noise off and went to work."Jackson gave credit for his record to the offensive line, most notably center Brad North."It means a ton doing it with these guys around me," Jackson said. "Brad has been my center for three years, so it's very cool to have some consistency back there."D.J. Moore had career highs with 12 catches and 210 yards receiving for Maryland (3-3, 1-2).Max Bortenschlager went 17 for 38 for 255 yards and three touchdowns (two to Moore) in his third college start. He was returning from a hard hit to the helmet that put him on the sideline for the fourth quarter last week in a 62-14 loss to Ohio State.Bortenschlager started the season as the Terrapins' third-string quarterback but became the starter after Tyrrell Pigrome and Kasim Hill sustained season-ending knee injuries.The defense, however, allowed 30 first downs and the Wildcats turned 10 third downs into a new set of downs."We didn't do a very good job today tackling, and that let to big plays," linebacker Jermaine Carter said. "We've got to get off the field on third down."Thorson ran for an 18-yard touchdown and threw a scoring pass to Flynn Nagel during the final four minutes of the first half to put Northwestern ahead 24-14.It was 27-14 before Bortenschlager capped a 79-yard drive with a 20-yard touchdown pass to Taivon Jacobs.Charlie Kuhbander's third field goal upped the margin to nine points with 13 minutes left, and Jackson clinched it with a 21-yard TD run with 1:54 to go.After Maryland went up 7-0 on a 12-yard touchdown catch by Moore, Kuhbander kicked a field goal before the Wildcats grabbed the lead on a 5-yard touchdown run by Jackson. The drive also featured a 23-yard run by Jackson on a third-and-19 from the Northwestern 20.Moore turned a short pass into a 52-yard touchdown to put Maryland in front — for the last time.MOORE CATCHES ONMoore moved into 10th on the school career list with 110 catches and ranks 11th with 1,610 yards receiving.The 5-foot-11 junior ranks fourth in career TD catches at Maryland with 16. His 12 receptions on Saturday were the most by a Terp since Torrey Smith's 14 against NC State in 2010.THE TAKEAWAYNorthwestern: After starting their Big Ten schedule with losses to Wisconsin and Penn State, the Wildcats showed they have enough talent to handle middle-of-the-pack teams such as Maryland. That should bode well for Northwestern down the stretch because the remainder of its schedule does not include Ohio State or Michigan.

    Edwards, Rutgers down Illinois 35-24

    CHAMPAIGN, Ill. (AP) — After a 56-0 beat down by then-No. 11 Ohio State two weeks ago, Rutgers had hit rock bottom — particularly in the Big Ten.The Scarlet Knights tried to turn their lowest point into a turning point on Saturday, managing nearly 400 yards of total offense in a 35-24 win over Illinois.Gus Edwards led the way for Rutgers (2-4, 1-2), rushing for 91 yards and two touchdowns as it ended a 16-game losing streak in the Big Ten.The Scarlet Knights led the entire way for their first conference victory since 2015 at Indiana."Nobody gave us a chance to come out here and win a football game," Rutgers coach Chris Ash said. "I know that, but nobody gave up on each other in that locker room."Rutgers rushed for a season-high 274 yards. Edwards, Raheem Blackshear and Josh Hicks all scored touchdowns. Blackshear provided the most exciting run — a 19-yard gain up the middle on the Scarlet Knights' second possession that he finished by running over defensive back Jalen Dunlap at the goal line.Jeff George Jr. was 20-of-38 passing for a career-high 308 yards and a pair of touchdowns for Illinois (2-4, 0-3). George also threw two interceptions, totaling 12 in seven career games for the Illini, who have now lost six consecutive Big Ten games."Losing at home like that, it's a tough deal," George said. "We've got to find a way to be more competitive as a whole team — each individual player, myself included."The Scarlet Knights offense wasn't nearly as effective through the air. Ash benched Kyle Bolin — who started in the team's first five games — and went with Giovanni Rescigno, who completed 5 of 10 passes for 89 yards.However, Rescigno picked up 45 yards on the ground."I think the stats speak for themselves," Rescigno said. "So shout out to the o-line. ... They really dominated up front and I think that was huge for our success."Ra'Von Bonner scored Illinois' only rushing touchdown midway through the second quarter. After a 19-yard reception by Louis Dorsey to start to the drive, Ricky Smalling made a tough catch on the right sideline to put the Illini in the red zone. Bonner finished it with a 1-yard plunge on fourth-and-goal.Despite its offensive woes, Illinois was still in the game late in the third. Trailing by 11, the Illini forced a three-and-out but Carmoni Green fumbled on the punt return. Rutgers recovered it and took over at the Illinois 21. Two plays later, Edwards scored on a 5-yard rush that put the Scarlet Knights ahead by three scores.Smalling scored the first touchdown of his career in the fourth and finished with a career-high five catches for 111 yards."(This) isn't where we want to be, but that's where we are," Illinois coach Lovie Smith said. "When you have a performance like this, thank God you get a chance to play another game."EPSTEIN'S INJURYRunning back Mike Epstein will most likely miss the rest of the season for Illinois with a foot injury. Smith made the announcement following the game after Epstein failed to suit up against Rutgers. The loss serves as a huge blow the Illini's offense. Epstein leads the team with 346 rushing yards and three touchdowns.THE TAKEAWAYRUTGERS: After being shut out by Ohio State, Rutgers' offense bounced back with a big performance against the Illini. The Scarlet Knights didn't score through the air but rushed for the most yards in program history against a Big Ten opponent.ILLINOIS: The Illini have taken a few steps back since the beginning of the season. After a strong performance against Western Kentucky, Illinois' offense has continued to struggle. George has made more plays down field than Chayce Crouch — who started in the team's first four games — but his interceptions have made it hard for the team to find a rhythm.UP NEXT

    Altuve’s dash lifts Verlander, Astros over Yanks in Game 2

    HOUSTON — With each stinging line drive, Jose Altuve is putting his stamp on this October. Same with every pitch from Justin Verlander, no matter the inning or score.Houston’s longest tenured player and its durable new ace — an incomparable pair so far this postseason.Altuve raced home on Carlos Correa’s double in the ninth inning, Verlander struck out 13 in a complete game and the Astros beat the New York Yankees 2-1 Saturday for a 2-0 lead in the AL Championship Series.Correa also homered , but Houston needed a daring dash from the 5-foot-6 Altuve to get Verlander a win. Altuve, an AL MVP front-runner, reached with a one-out single against closer Aroldis Chapman, then sprinted around from first base on Correa’s shot to right-center field. Shortstop Didi Gregorius’ relay beat Altuve to the plate, but catcher Gary Sanchez misplayed a short-hop, allowing Houston’s dynamo second baseman to slide past safely.“When I saw him running I was like, ‘Oh God,’” Correa said. “And then obviously he beat it out.”Altuve had two more hits and is 13 for 23 (.565) this postseason after hitting just 4 for 26 (.154) in the 2015 playoffs.“He’s unbelievable,” Verlander said. “The guy does everything.”Verlander improved to 8-0 in eight appearances with Houston since agreeing to an Aug. 31 trade from the Tigers, including his Game 4 win in relief during a Division Series against Boston. He has a 2.04 ERA over a postseason-leading 17 2/3 innings.“When I decided to say yes, these are the moments that you envision,” Verlander said of agreeing to the trade. “You don’t envision going 5-0 in the regular season once you get here, that’s all fine and great, but that’s not why I was brought here. I was brought here to help this team win a championship.”Verlander set a postseason career best for strikeouts and allowed five hits in his second career complete game in the playoffs. He threw a season-high 124 pitches and retired baby Bronx Bombers Aaron Judge, Sanchez and Greg Bird in the top of the ninth.“This is such a big moment for our team, but he put us on his back today with his pitching,” manager A.J. Hinch said.Dallas Keuchel won Game 1 for the Astros — also 2-1 — pairing with Verlander to give the Astros perhaps the best 1-2 punch in these playoffs.“That was one of the most impressive things I’ve seen in my professional career for sure,” Keuchel said. “But that’s why we got him — for his postseason pedigree.”In the bottom of the ninth, Judge picked up Correa’s hit in right field and threw toward second base. Gregorius fielded there, and his throw beat Altuve to the plate by a few steps. Sanchez just couldn’t squeeze the one-hopper.“That’s a play I’m used to making,” Sanchez said through a translator. “Really thought I had a chance at making that play there. Unfortunately I dropped the ball and couldn’t make that play.”The Astros mobbed Correa in shallow center field while Altuve pointed and smiled from near home plate.Houston took its first ever 2-0 lead in a Championship Series in front of a crowd of 43,193 which included Houston Rockets stars James Harden, Chris Paul and Trevor Ariza in front-row seats. Minute Maid Park buzzed throughout, and fans let out huge cheer when Hinch sent Verlander back out to pitch the ninth.“No words were necessary,” Verlander said. “It was my game to win or lose.”
