The Belgian centre-half’s contract at White Hart Lane expires at the end of June, and although the club are understood to wish for Vertonghen to stay, the player himself recently dropped a major hint that his future lays elsewhere. His exit will necessitate a defensive arrival in the summer window, with Jose Mourinho persistently linked with swooping for a former Diego Simeone favourite.

(July 11) – A great week of racing for the 30th annual Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour was wrapped up by a nail-biting finale at the Dacotah Speedway that included one of the closest finishes in recent memory. A total of 110 IMCA Modified racers and 35 IMCA Stock Car racers competed on the 30th edition of the tour. Next year promises to be huge as Bob Kupper, owner of Kupper Chevrolet, announced in victory lane Thursday that he will double the purse for the 31st edition of the Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Modified Tour. Feature Results A mishap up front helped Casey Arneson and Taylor gain ground but Marriott had a big enough gap that there was no real contention for the $2,400 win. Marriott was already on the Fast Shafts All-Star Invitational ballot. Thornton ended up second, winning the tour championship with an unprecedented 198 out of a possible 200 points. Those two, along with third place finisher Speckman, finished in the top five every night on the tour. Austin Daae finished fourth and Flory’s father Joe rounded out the top five. By Jackson Braun Arneson staved off Taylor to grab the runner-up spot while Jason Hughes made a run up to fourth and Berry completed the top five, winning the tour championship in the process. Arneson’s brother Austin ended up making a run from 19th starting to sixth. A good run off turn four gave Marriott the momentum to take the lead. As Thornton faded, his hopes of sweeping the your championships came to a close as Tom Berry Jr. took his car from 12th around Thornton during the middle portion of the event. Once Marriott got out to the lead, it was smooth sailing until he reached lapped traffic. IMCA Stock Cars – 1. Dalton Flory, Williston; 2. Ricky Thornton Jr., Adel, Iowa; 3.

A feature win and consistency throughout made Tom Berry Jr. champion of the IMCA Modified portion of the 30th annual Kupper Chevrolet Dakota Classic Tour. (Photo by Byron Fichter) Flory put his car way down on the inside of the speedway and had a huge run coming out of turn four on the final lap. That huge boost off of the bottom of the speedway gave the 2014 tour champion enough oomph to outlast Thornton to the line in an absolutely stunning turn of events and which paid Flory $800. Taylor got a jump off of the start as Marriott advanced into second. Marriott was able to set his car through the corners smoothly around the rim of the speedway and to pull alongside Taylor. Jeff Taylor and Ricky Thornton Jr. led the IMCA Modified field to green for the final 30 laps on the tour. Coming into the night, Thornton had a 14-point deficit to make up. Three-peat champion Hunter Marriott did not come across his usual luck this season but heated up towards the end of the tour as the Brookfield, Mo., racer took advantage of a starting spot inside of row 2. A late-race caution made way for some close racing in the closing laps. Thornton had Matt Speckman, the only guy who has beat him in Stock Car feature action up to that point, right on his bumper looking to make a move. However, Dalton Flory lurked behind them.
The following incidents were reported in the USC Dept. of Public Safety incident summary between Friday, Sept. 30, and Sunday, Oct. 2.Crimes against a personAt 1:45 a.m. on Oct. 2, a student reported that a security guard at the 901 Bar & Grill placed him in a choke hold and another one flicked a lit cigarette at his face following an altercation inside the establishment, during which he discharged pepper spray in self defense. One of the guards refused to speak with DPS officers who responded to the scene and the second guard could not be located at the time of the report, so the matter was turned over to LAPD detectives for further investigation.Crimes against propertyAt 2:03 p.m. on Sept. 30, a student approached a retail unit officer inside Pertusati University Bookstore and advised him that another student had picked up several items and placed them in a backpack he was carrying. The officer attempted to detain the student when he was observed exiting the store without paying for the merchandise, but the student ignored the officer and fled on foot. The student was detained by DPS officers who responded to the scene. They found him in possession of several items for which he had not paid. The student was then arrested and transported to 77th station for booking.Miscellaneous incidentsAt 12:17 p.m. on Oct. 1, DPS officers responded to an intoxicated student who sustained a cut to the back of his head when he fell outside the Edward L. Doheny Jr. Memorial Library. Fire Safety personnel responded to treat the student and an LAFD unit was requested. LAFD Unit #15 took over treatment of the student and he was released at the scene after declining transportation for additional medical treatment.At 8:46 a.m. on Oct. 1, DPS officers responded to a report of two suspects at the location selling parking spaces in private lots at 36th Place and Vermont Avenue without the owner’s permission. When questioned by the officers the suspects claimed they had the necessary permits to conduct their business and stated they would retrieve the documentation from another site. The suspects then left the scene and never returned.At 2:48 a.m. on Oct. 1, DPS officers responded to an intoxicated non-USC female who was lost near Kappa Alpha Theta. The officers determined the female was unable to care for herself and they were unable to locate the student with whom she was staying or any other person who could take custody of her. The officers then arrested the female and transported her to 77th station for booking.At 4:16 p.m. on Sept. 30, DPS officers responded to a report of a suspect trespassing Theta Chi and detained him for investigation. A check of the suspect’s name revealed three outstanding warrants. He was arrested and transported to 77th station for booking.
Published on October 22, 2016 at 12:48 am Syracuse (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) visits Boston College (3-3, 0-3) at 12:30 p.m. on Saturday. The Orange is coming off a 31-17 upset with over then-No. 17 Virginia Tech while the Eagles are coming off a bye week. SU is looking for its first back-to-back wins of the season.Here’s how beat writers Tomer Langer, Chris Libonati and Jon Mettus forecast the matchup.Tomer Langer (2-2)Clawing backSyracuse 27, Boston College 24I think this game will be closer than some people expect after SU’s win against then-No. 17 Virginia Tech. There are a lot of factors working against the Orange here. Boston College is well rested coming off a bye, the weather conditions shouldn’t be great and there’s also always the possibility of a let-down the week after a really emotional win against a weaker opponent (which seemingly is what happened to VT). I do think the Orange get back to .500 and get one game closer to bowl eligibility, but I don’t think it’ll be easy.Chris Libonati (5-2)Won if by airSyracuse 31, Boston College 20AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNow that Syracuse has established itself and gained a little bit of momentum, it is on the cusp of putting together its first winning streak in the Dino Babers era. It’s easy to see an emotional let down coming, but the team has a chance to put this season and the program on the right path. If SU understands that, I think it’ll be able to guard against a let down. Having had its first bad weather game, you’d think SU has learned how to cope with the conditions coming its way. If SU holds down the outside factors, given that it’s the more talented team, you should be looking at a .500 ball club after facing BC.Jon Mettus (5-2)Boston creamed (sort of)Syracuse 24, Boston College 13I’ll be honest, a week ago I would have picked Syracuse to lose this game with Boston College coming off a bye. But after SU’s performance against then-No.17 Virginia Tech, it’s nearly impossible to pick against it. BC has a strong defense but hasn’t won an Atlantic Coast Conference game since it beat the Orange in 2014. The Eagles offense is subpar so this one will be in the hands of the Syracuse offense.
