Carson vs. Manogue Baseball @ Manogue

The Miners took the first game of the series today at home… tomorrow’s game is at Carson @ 3:45…

I’m just going to put up a gallery here of photos from the day… Manogue threw four pitchers today… with 17 total runs today there was a lot of hits and a lot of running… we were commenting on the bus coming back that it was kind of a strange game…

Carson is fighting tomorrow for their first round playoff game to be at home… if they win, they seal their own fate and will play the first round at home on Tuesday… time will tell!  See you at the field tomorrow!

Douglas vs. Manogue Varsity Baseball…

A strange game today… I’m always learning the rules, the strategies of the game, etc… today some strange things happened… and this is from my perspective… based on what I heard and saw… and I’m NO baseball expert by any stretch of the imagination….

Bottom of the 7th, Manogue 5-3, no outs… Douglas with runners on 1st and 2nd…  Batter pops the ball up… the Manogue shortstop and 3rd baseman loose the ball in the “ball colored” sky and it drops to the ground, apparently the field umpire called it an infield fly (but no one heard this…)(supposed to be an out… I don’t totally understand the entire idea behind this rule… but it’s a rule… ) the runners started advancing… the runner reaching third thought he was out by force… but if it’s and infield fly then it’s not a force… I’m confused just writing all of this…

Anyway… Douglas’ Manager was out to “discuss” this with the umpires… out he goes after a long “discussion”…. when we get back to baseball… Douglas now has two outs… Douglas puts another runner on, then drives them both in… tie game at 5… base hit, pinch runner, another single… the Douglas 3rd base coach sends the runner… a collision at home plate (see the photo below and in the Douglas gallery)… the Douglas runner touches home plate, ump calls him safe, game over… that’s the speed reader version… tensions high… fans chipping away too… time to exit stage right for me!

WOW that was a wild one!  Still not sure I exactly understand all of what I witnessed…

Here are some photos from the day!  🙂  The good stuff for me…  More photographic “editorial” comments below the photos… Click on the photos to see them larger….

Shooting at Douglas for these 11:00 AM games is a bit of a nightmare… but you get what you get when you shoot outdoor sports… The problem is the sun is blasting the field players from behind… so you have to accommodate for that which then blows out the sky… The batters will have a harsh shadow across some part of their face… The pitchers, when they stretch back you get part of them blasted with sun and part in the shade of their own body… then let’s add in some white pants… 🙂  Gotta love photography!  See you out at the fields soon!

NIAA Regional Championship Wrestling… Finals!!

A VERY big Congratulations to all of the wrestlers today… and to the host Carson Senators for their Zone Championship.  The North will be well represented in Vegas next week when the group of Northern Region 4A Wrestlers heads down to the State Tournament at Cox Arena.  Here are just a few shots from today… See more at the link on the side or click HERE (just FYI… there are 13 pages of images… so look at the header to be sure you’ve reached the end…)

This shot ended the competition!  This fella looked up and smiled as he was pinning his opponent!!  I love it!!

Nico from Carson… dedicated his run for a State Championship to his friends Stephen and Keegan who lost their lives a little less than a year ago in a scuba accident… his pin in the Championship helped secure the Team Zone Championship for Carson.

… and coach McCarthy accepting the Zone Championship from the NIAA… A good day for Coach McCarthy… League Championship, Check… Zone Championship, Check… His son winning a Zone Championship, Check!!

Carson vs. Bishop Manogue Basketball tonight @ Carson High

What a night of basketball!  After the two JV games the Girls battled out a close finish, Manogue taking the win and I believe solidifying their first place in League… and the Carson boys squeaked out a win in overtime 73-70.

Here are some photo from the night…see all the action at the links on the side for the respective school… one more league night and then onto playoffs for the teams in the top 4 of each league.

Carson High vs. Bishop Manogue High Football… Playoffs…

Carson hosted Bishop Manogue tonight… after the fire and incredible winds we had on Friday, the North Section Semifinals were moved to… Monday Night Football!!  Just can’t resist that!  🙂

The first half was close but in “Roman” Fashion, adjustments were made and the second half swung Carson’s way for a 32-21 victory….  This puts Carson playing Reed (who defeated Douglas tonight…) on Saturday at UNR’s Mackay Stadium at Noon.

Here are some shots from tonights game…

The Manogue QB… he saw a lot of action tonight, Carson kept him on his toes and he threw the ball… a lot…

… but tonight was about celebration for Carson…  Here Big Luke after his TD reception… (this is what happens when you try to capture a celebration with a very large lens standing way too close… but I liked it…)…

… and after Brock’s TD reception…

… and of course, Mr. Sawyer’s saw the ball a lot tonight…

Carson High vs. Manogue High Volleyball tonight…

Manogue visited Carson High tonight… and took seven straight matches from the Senators… the third set of the Varsity was the closest of the night but Manogue just seemed to have more polish tonight.  Just two photos here, check out the rest at the links under Current Events.

Check out the ball in this shot…!

Carson High vs. Bishop Manogue High Varsity Football…

A day of football today!!  First off was the Varsity match up of Carson High @ Bishop Manogue High.  BEAUTIFUL BEAUTIFUL day today!  You could argue that the wind was a bit annoying but it kept the temps down… and what a great day for the Manogue Homecoming… Unfortunately for Manogue, Carson walked away with a 27-24 win… and in thrilling fashion… with 33 seconds to go Carson kicked a 64 yard field goal to win it…  This game had it all, neither team could capitalize on the other’s mistakes to gain any kind of advantage… A lot of grinding it out on the ground, I’d say Carson won the “air” battle… just barely connecting a few times with Brock Pradere for some good gains… Here is some action from the day… see more at the individual links on the side under Current Events.  See you out at the fields soon!

Some runners first… Manogue’s big strong #5 got the lion’s share of the “pound it out” yardage today….

 

And Carson’s #32… does he need an introduction?  Dylan saw a lot of carries today….

The Veteran QB for Manogue…

… and the Junior QB for Carson…

Carson High vs. Bishop Manogue High… Freshman and JV Football

Carson High walked away with two wins tonight at Bishop Manogue High.  Both games were close into the last quarter but Carson pulled away in each game with a few key plays that made the game for the Senators.
