What Did You Miss Saturday?
--The BC Lions got a last play chip-shot field goal by Ty Long as they beat Winnipeg 20-17. The Bombers led the game 17-0 at the half. The Lions are now 2-2 while the Bombers are 2-3.
--The CFL is suspending Toronto Argonauts defensive lineman Dylan Wynn for one game, effective immediately. The discipline is in response to a play in the fourth quarter of Friday night’s game, when Wynn hit Edmonton Eskimos running back C.J. Gable. In making this hit, Wynn used his helmet to deliver a late and direct blow to Gable’s head in a reckless manner while the player was on the ground and in a vulnerable position.
--Belgium has achieved its best World Cup finish by beating England 2-nil in the 3rd place game Thomas Meunier gave Belgium the lead in the fourth minute. Croatia plays France in the championship game Sunday.
--The St. Louis Cardinals have fired manager Mike Matheny during his seventh season with the team hovering around .500. The Cardinals announced Matheny’s firing after an 8-2 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on Saturday night, a defeat that dropped St. Louis to 47-46 and seven games back of the NL Central-leading Chicago Cubs.
--Ilya Kovalchuk says he has three to four good years left. Kovalchuk made the statement to reporters in Los Angeles Saturday as he discussed his return to the NHL and the Kings after playing in the KHL for the last five years. The 35 year old figures with players like Drew Doughty, Jeff Carter, and Anze Kopitar around that he should be able to produce at a high level.
