Union College outscores Cumberlands 49-45, wins the Brass Lantern

fb_lantern16BARBOURVILLE, Ky. – The comeback kids did it again, but this time the prize was the Brass Lantern.

Union College rallied from a 10-point deficit to defeat visiting Cumberlands (Ky.) 49-45 on Saturday to bring home the Brass Lantern – the traveling trophy for this annual rivalry showdown.

“It was a dog fight, back-and-forth, a true rivalry game,” said Union head coach Zak Willis after the win.

After trailing by 10 at halftime, the Bulldogs (3-1 overall, 2-0 Mid-South Conference East) bounced back in the third to grab a 35-31 advantage. However, Union found itself down 45-35 with 11:46 to play.

Cumberlands appeared to be in control as it was up 10 and had the ball on its own 12 with 9:41 remaining. Yet, on the very first play from scrimmage, Tyreke Stone picked off a Josiah Robbins pass at the Union 49. Two plays later, Chandler Whittlesey hit Kevin Eichelberger in the end zone for a 15-yard scoring strike, pulling Union within 45-42 with 9:18 left.

Former EKU golfer Dave Ryan wins U.S. Senior Amateur

ST. LOUIS, Mo.– Former Eastern Kentucky University golfer Dave Ryan won the 62nd U.S. Senior Amateur Championship on Thursday at Old Warson Country Club in St. Louis.

Ryan, who played for the Colonels in the early 1970s, edged Matthew Sughrue, 2 up, in the match play finals.

Sughrue won the first hole in the championship match but Ryan won the next five to go 4 up.  The two competitors then matched each other over the next four holes and Ryan was still 4 up after 10 holes were played.  Sughrue got back into it by winning four of the next five and the match was all square after 15 holes.  Ryan took the lead back with a five on the par-5 No. 16.  Both carded three’s on the par-3 No. 17 hole.  Ryan preserved the win with a four on the par-4 No. 18 while Sughrue bogeyed the final hole.

Ryan, 62, of Taylorville, Illinois, earned the Chicago District Golf Association’s senior player of the year award six of the last seven years.  He entered the championship just a week after claiming the Illinois Senior Amateur title.

Ryan defeated Paul Simson, a two-time U.S. Senior Amateur winner, in the round of 16 on Tuesday with the help of a hole-in-one on the par-4, No. 14 hole.  It is just the third known ace on a par-4 in USGA championship history.  After beating Michael Dunsmore in Wednesday morning’s quarterfinals 5-and-3, Ryan won the first two holes against two-time Mid-Am champion Tim Jackson in the semifinals and never gave up the lead.

The course at Old Warson Country Club played to a par of 71 and measured 6,956 yards for the 18-hole championship match.

The 2016-17 Colonels will look to continue their strong start to the season on Sept. 25-26 at the Patriot Intercollegiate hosted by George Mason.

Here is the 1975 EKU men’s golf team.  Dave Ryan is fourth from the left in the front row.

Kentucky hosts New Mexico State on Heroes’ Day

Kentucky returns home to Commonwealth Stadium seeking its first victory of the season on Heroes’ Day, which honors active, reserve and veteran members of the armed forces along with police, firefighters and first responders. This year’s event will take place the week of the 15th anniversary of the attacks on Sept. 11, 2001.
The Wildcats are coming off a difficult loss to Florida in The Swamp and look to rebound in front of their home crowd. Through the first two games the offense has produced a number of explosive plays, including five pass plays of more than 40 yards, and has several players moving up the school’s career ranks.
Defensively, sophomore linebacker Jordan Jones continues to shine while flying all over the field to register 28 tackles in the first two games. Kentucky also has forced a turnover in eight consecutive games.
This will be the first meeting between UK and New Mexico State in football.
GAME NOTES
• Sophomore linebacker Jordan Jones has been a menace to opposing offenses, registering 28 tackles to lead all SEC defenders in tackles after two games. Jones ranks third nationally in total tackles. Continue reading: Kentucky hosts New Mexico State on Heroes’ Day
