Joey Taycher won for the first time in his IMCA Modified career Saturday at Shawano Speedway. (Photo by A and H Photos)By Scott OwenSHAWANO, Wis. (June 10) — One night removed from a full moon, the Shawano Speedway almost had it all … a nasty wreck, a first-time winner, sweet redemption following a nasty wreck and drivers coming from deep in the field.Joey Taycher got soaked in victory lane after his first career IMCA Modified victory. Travis Van Straten won his fourth local IMCA Sunoco Stock Car feature of the season and Jason Ebert won his first Karl Chevrolet Northern SportMod feature of the season.The IMCA Modified feature got off to a scary start as more than half the field was involved in a wreck at the end of the back straight away. Lance Arneson rolled multiple times before his car came to rest on its side. All drivers were okay though numerous cars were eliminated from action.Once the race got going again, Taycher and Matt McDermid raced side-by-side for the top spot before Taycher pulled ahead. Taycher led the rest of the race for his first career win in the division. McDermid held on to finish a strong second in only his third night back after a seven-year hiatus. Seventy-six-year young Jerry Muenster continues to amaze after a third place finish.Luke Uttecht led early in the IMCA Stock Car feature as Van Straten quickly raced to second. Van Straten and Justin Jacobsen passed Uttecht to begin a battle for the lead. As the laps clicked away, Jacobsen made numerous attempts to find a way around Van Straten. Jacobsen tried the high line right on the wall and the low line right on the barrels, but to no avail. Van Straten held on to win the race, his fourth in a row. Dan Michonski came from 15th to finish third.The Northern SportMod feature was led early by Tyler Thiex but Ebert quickly moved to the front. Ebert led the rest of the way fending off a late charge by Lucas Lamberies for the win. For Ebert, it was sweet redemption after a nasty wreck a few weeks back. Lamberies, fresh off a big win in Davenport, Iowa the previous night, came from 18th to finish second. Jordan Barkholtz took third.
Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ The 2001 Syracuse Orangemen entered their bowl game against Kansas State as an underdog with something to prove.Despite finishing the season 9-3, good for second in the Big East behind Miami (Fla.), SU was shut out of a more prolific bowl game. And to top it off, the team wasn’t even favored against a 6-5 Kansas State team in the Insight.com Bowl.But Syracuse didn’t let the pundits stop it in its 26-3 rout of Kansas State in the 2001 Insight.com Bowl in Phoenix, Ariz. Led by running back James Mungro’s 112 yards and three touchdowns, the Orangemen (10-3) became the sixth SU team in 112 years to win 10 games.It was the Orangemen’s 12th win in a bowl game, a number that still stands today.‘The fact that Kansas State was favored was an incentive to us,’ Mungro told reporters after the game. ‘We just wanted to go out and prove to America that we are a better team.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe game was a rematch between two teams that played in the 1997 Fiesta Bowl. Kansas State won that version 35-18. But outside of the school names, the two games held no similarities.Mungro, who ran for over 1,000 yards during the season, ran 65 yards for a score to give SU a 7-0 lead in the first quarter. The Orangemen would never look back, moving down the field with ease on four touchdown drives while holding Kansas State to just a first quarter field goal. Johnnie Morant had two big catches for a total of 93 yards and a score, and Syracuse outgained Kansas State 109 to 33 in rushing yards.But as quick and dominating as the SU offense was, its defense was even better. Kansas State entered the game averaging 255 rushing yards per game but were shut down completely. Orangemen junior linebacker Clifton Smith was a big reason for the Wildcats’ offensive ineptitude. Smith led the SU defense with 12 tackles and a sack.Syracuse forced Kansas State to four turnovers — two interceptions and two fumble recoveries. One Wildcats quarterback, Eli Roberson — KSU switched between two QBs throughout the game — was just 2-of-15 for the game.‘I think we played very aggressively because we were underdogs,’ Smith told reporters after the game. ‘Even with playing two quarterbacks, we knew they were a running team. But it’s nothing new in terms of our ability to stop the run.’Winning was nothing new for SU head coach Paul Pasqualoni’s 18th-ranked Orangemen. The team may not have been able to play in a New Year’s Day bowl, but the win against a previously Kansas State team that was favored by nearly a touchdown provided confirmation for Syracuse. The team was just as good as its record read.Even more impressive was SU’s record after its first two games. The team went 10-1 following an 0-2 start and had an eight-game winning streak.‘I feel very satisfied,’ Pasqualoni told reporters after the game. ‘We played 10 teams with winning records and nine of them went to bowl games. We are only the sixth team in 112 years of Syracuse football to win 10 games.’– Compiled by Asst.
