Freshman Aiden Gosnell led the Railroaders with a ninth-place finish. On the girls side, Elk Mound put all five of its runners in the top 25 to win
MINNEAPOLIS — With a boost from an illegal block penalty by the Buffalo Bills during a punt, the Minnesota Vikings finally crossed midfield with 9:36 left in the third quarter. Their next two plays were an incompletion and an interception. That was a fitting sequence in a game dominated from start to finish by, not the 16½-point favorite Vikings, but the previously winless Bills in the 27-6 decision . “I have not lost faith in this football team, but it just shows you
SAINT-QUENTIN-EN-YVELINES, France — Already the most intense competition in golf, the Ryder Cup doesn’t need help to boost the excitement. Tiger Woods managed to take it to another level. He looked like the Woods of old by leading the final 36 holes of the Tour Championship, not letting anyone near him until it was too late, a vintage performance made all the more remarkable by four back surgeries and a future that looked bleak only a year ago. Woods was a vice captain at the
Expectations are low for the 2018-19 University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team, at least from the outside. In a preseason poll released Monday, Big Ten Conference coaches picked the Badgers to finish in sixth place, the same spot they occupied at the end of last season. Coaches unanimously chose defenseman Wyatt Kalynuk for the preseason watch list, but with last year’s standard and because of looming questions about scoring and goaltending entering the season, the team’s
CHIPPEWA FALLS — Speed can kill on the soccer field. There are examples everywhere: a winger who can knock the ball past a defender and beat him in a footrace to slip behind the opponent’s back line, or a defender capable of chasing down long balls over the midfield to snuff out a scoring chance. Sprinkle some technique and soccer IQ into the mix, and the results can be mightily impressive. Menomonie has had the chance to witness that firsthand this year. Senior captain Adam
GREEN BAY — The Green Bay Packers lost at Washington on Sunday, and Mike Daniels lost one of his “buddies” when fellow defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson sustained a season-ending ankle injury. “You never want to see anybody go down. You don’t want to see your worst enemy go down out there,” Daniels said Monday. “When you see one of your buddies go down, that makes it even worse. Mo and I are pretty close. He sits right next to me on the plane.
MILWAUKEE — Giannis Antetokounmpo was all smiles but had no jokes. The Milwaukee Bucks’ All-Star forward was more business this time around: While he didn’t indulge reporters by opening his media day session on Monday with a gag, as he had done in previous years, Antetokounmpo still flashed an infectious grin. Things are looking up for the Milwaukee Bucks as they move into a new arena this fall, with a new coach leading a team headlined by one of the NBA’s bright,
Allison Chomniak shot a 77 on Sunday and finished with a two-round score of 155 (11 over par) to take third at the UW-Whitewater Fall Invitational at The Oaks in Cottage Grove. The Blugolds moved up one spot to take fourth as a team. MEN’S GOLF: UW-Eau Claire’s Alex Rogan shot an even-par 72 to move up to third place after the second of three rounds at the Twin Cities Classic at The Links at Northfork in Ramsey, Minn. The Blugolds were second in the team standings, 10 shots
LANDOVER, Md. — A week removed from what he called “an embarrassment,” Adrian Peterson turned in his first 100-yard game in more than 10 months. Peterson ran for 120 yards and a pair of 2-yard scores, Alex Smith threw two touchdown passes and the Washington Redskins held on Sunday for a 31-17 victory over a gimpy Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers, who again had complaints about a roughing the passer penalty on Clay Matthews. On a rainy afternoon, the Redskins (2-1)
PITTSBURGH — The Milwaukee Brewers used their power to put the Pittsburgh Pirates on the ropes. Some heads-up baserunning — and more than a little help from the mistake-prone home team — pushed the Brewers closer to the club’s fifth playoff berth in franchise history. Christian Yelich, Travis Shaw and Mike Moustakas all hit homers and Milwaukee scored three times on one wild pitch in the sixth inning to break it open as the Brewers cruised to a 13-6 victory on Sunday.
