Tech soccer blanked on road at Texas-San Antonio

in

SAN ANTONIO, Texas — UTSA used two first period goals to defeat Louisiana Tech, 2-0, on Sunday evening at the UTSA Rec Sports Complex.
Tech’s (9-9-1, 4-5 Conference USA) offense was shut out for the second time this weekend in what was a challenging road swing. It was not any easier for the Techster defense as both weekend opponents tallied 20 shots as well.
“Friday’s match just took too much out of us,” head coach Kevin Sherry said. UTSA’s No. 17 was the difference today and the one player we just could not handle.”

Adopt, don’t shop for pets

Whether an avid pet lover or someone wanting to get their feet wet with pet ownership, adopting a shelter animal is always a good thing.
October is Adopt a Shelter Dog month, and with the hundreds of homeless animals in Lincoln Parish, we should look at adopting one of them instead of shopping for one.
Locally, we have a large selection of places from which to choose. We have Ruston Animal Control Center, Waggin’ Tails Ranch, Passion for Pups and 4Paws — all of them are more than happy to help you choose your new pet.

Davis, OK.jpg

In the summer of 1985 you could practically set your clock by O.A. “Bum” Phillips.
Just as sure as the Kansas City Southern would zip through Ruston on its regular 12 noon schedule, the folksy Phillips would conduct each press conference for media covering the New Orleans Saints’ preseason workouts at Louisiana Tech at 3:30 p.m. on the top floor of Carruthers Hall.
And be assured, the press conferences always started at 3:30 p.m.
Phillips, who passed away recently at the age of 90, made sure of that with his media brethren.

It was almost the perfect ending to a drama that has played out for nearly two weeks now.
But it wasn’t meant to be. Not yet, anyway.
Looking for their first win over the season, the Grambling State Tigers saw their dreams dashed again Saturday as Texas Southern rallied from a 10-point deficit behind backup quarterback Jamal Small, who plunged into the end zone from two yards out to give TSU a 23-17 win in overtime.
Grambling took first possession in overtime but failed to score after freshman kicker Johnathan Wallace missed on a 29-yard field goal attempt.
