    GREENVILLE, NC (UNCW)-– The UNCW women’s golf team carded a team total 295 and holds a share of the lead after 18 holes of the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate Monday at the Greenville Country Club.

    The Seahawks posted their seven-over-par total under wet and windy conditions to earn a share of the lead with Atlantic Coast Conference member Maryland (295) after the opening 18 holes. Old Dominion (301) is six shots back of the Seahawks and Terrapins in third while Elon (302) is in fourth.

    “I was very pleased with how we played today,” said UNCW Head Coach Cindy Ho. “Scoring was difficult today in the rain, wind and cold, but we finally got a solid 4th score to post our best round of the fall so far. Lori Beth (Adams) got off to a great start, getting herself to four-under-par through 13 holes. Johanna (Bjoerk) also played well, holding it together and then finished strong with three birdies over the last four holes. We had a solid round from everyone today and because of that we’ve put ourselves in a great position to see if we can win a tournament tomorrow.”

    Junior Lori Beth Adams carded a one-under-par 71 and sits in third place after the opening 18 holes while freshman Johanna Bjoerk is one shot back of Adams in an eight-way tie for fourth at even par. Juniors Laverry Kumar and Jeanne Metivier both carded four-over-par 76’s on Monday to earn a share of 24th. Senior Danielle Lamy (88/T-100th) completed UNCW’s entry while sophomore Mallory Warrick (86/T-95th) is competing as an individual entry.

    Maryland’s Juliet Vongphoumy holds a two-stroke lead over the field with a four-under-par 68. Boston College’s Cristina McQuiston is in second place after carding a two-under-par 70 on Monday.
    The two-day, 54-hole event was reduced to just 36 holes after second-round action was washed out Monday afternoon. After two hours of action, play was halted for 90 minutes due to lightning in the area during intermediate showers. When the golfers resumed play and finished first round action, heavier rains entered the area and play was halted for good around 4 p.m., leaving officials to cancel second round play all together.

    The final round of the Lady Pirate Intercollegiate is scheduled to begin Tuesday with a shotgun start slated for 8:30 a.m.


    SOUTH BEND, IN (UNCW) -– UNCW shot a tournament-low, four-under-par 280 in the second round to move into second-place overall at the Fighting Irish Gridiron Golf Classic on Monday at the Warren Golf Club. Senior Thomas Bass moved to the top of the leaderboard with a three-under-par score of 68.

    Michigan State (287-282=569) enters the final round on Tuesday with a seven-stroke lead over the Seahawks (296-280=576) and an eight-stroke lead on third-place San Francisco (292-285=577).

    Bass (71-68=139) was one of five golfers to card a 68 in the second round as he climbed from a tie for sixth into first place. He holds a two-stroke advantage over Michigan’s Noori Hyun (73-68=141) and Matthew Moseley (70-71=141) of Michigan State.

    While Bass made a move of his own, juniors Payne McLeod (75-70=145) and Ryan Nagy (77-68=145) made impressive jumps on Monday. Both moved into a tie for 13th. Nagy tied his career-low round with the three-under 68.
    The final round tees off at 8:30 a.m. with the Seahawks teeing off at 10 a.m. and are paired with Michigan State and San Francisco.

    WILMINGTON, NC (UNCW) -– UNCW freshman striker Colin Bonner was named Colonial Athletic Association Rookie-of-the-Week on Monday, giving the Seahawks back-to-back weekly rookie honors after Nathaniel Goodwin received the nod on Oct. 1.

    Bonner moved into a tie for the team lead with three goals when he scored what would prove to the game-winning goal in the Seahawks 3-0 win at William & Mary last Wednesday. Bonner’s goal came in the 48th minute as the Seahawks scored three times in the second half to break a scoreless deadlock after 45 minutes.
    It was the first game-winner for the powerful striker from Fulton, Md. His other two goals were game-tying efforts against Binghamton.

    In the W&M game, all three goals were scored by freshmen as Goodwin and Hannes Schmitz added goals as the Seahawks pulled away from the Tribe.

    The Seahawks open a vital three-game homestand on Wednesday with James Madison followed by a Saturday showdown with nationally-ranked Old Dominion. The homestand concludes on Oct. 17 against Georgia State. All three matches are 7 p.m. starts.

    All three opponents played in the NCAA tournament last fall and the Seahawks faced all three, in succession, on the road in 2011 and dropped each match by one goal.


    EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) – Arian Foster ran for 152 yards and a touchdown, and the Houston Texans stayed unbeaten by defeating the New York Jets for the first time in team history, hanging on for a 23-17 victory Monday night.

    With a chance to lead the Jets on a winning drive, Mark Sanchez was intercepted by Kareem Jackson on a pass that tipped off the hands of Jeff Cumberland with 1:51 remaining and the Texans (5-0) joined the Atlanta Falcons as the NFL’s only teams without a loss.

    The Jets (2-3) were heavy underdogs after coming off a 34-0 loss to San Francisco last week, but made a game of it. Backup quarterback Tim Tebow got the crowd fired up at times throughout the game, including running for a first down on a fake punt, but had little impact otherwise.

    Houston also overcame a 100-yard kickoff return by Joe McKnight that cut the Jets’ deficit to 20-14.

    BALTIMORE (AP) – Rookie Wei-Yin Chen outpitched 40-year-old Andy Pettitte, and the Baltimore Orioles beat the New York Yankees 3-2 Monday night to even their AL division series at one game apiece.

    Chris Davis drove in two runs for the Orioles, who used the same formula that got them into the postseason for the first time in 15 years: a magnificent bullpen and an ability to win tight games. Baltimore was 29-9 in one-run decisions during the regular season and 74-0 when leading after seven innings.

    Major league saves leader Jim Johnson, roughed up for five runs in a Game 1 loss, pitched a perfect ninth to close it out.

    Game 3 of the best-of-five series will be held at Yankee Stadium on Wednesday.

    ST. LOUIS (AP) – Carlos Beltran hit the last two of St. Louis’ four homers and the Cardinals chased an ineffective Jordan Zimmermann early in a 12-4 rout of the Washington Nationals on Monday night that tied their NL division series at one game apiece

    Allen Craig and Daniel Descalso also went deep to help the Cardinals build a big lead and compensate for a two-inning start from Jaime Garcia. Craig hit his fifth career postseason homer and scored three times.

    Ryan Zimmerman and Adam LaRoche hit consecutive homers in the fifth inning for the Nationals, who won’t pitch All-Star ace Stephen Strasburg – shut down for the year early last month.
