Villopoto leads USA to Motocross of Nations triumph

Ryan Villopoto’s monster motocross season continued over the weekend as he led the USA team to victory at the Motocross of Nations in France.

The Poulsbo rider, now living in Florida, won the AMA Supercross and AMA Motorcross 450cc titles previously.

There’s no disputing that the Kawasaki rider is the best in the world at what he does. How many people can say that?

 

Jared Prince earns all-star honors as utility outfielder

Former North Kitsap star Jared Prince of the Myrtle Beach (S.C.) Pelicans was named to the Class A Carolina League All-Star team. The Texas Rangers’ farm hand made it as a utility outfielder.

Here’s what the press release reported on Prince:

After a brutal 4-for-45 start to the season, the Washington State University product has been a constant engine in the Myrtle Beach order, batting .297 in 116 games since. The versatile offensive performer has spent 13 games or more at the second, third, fourth, fifth, sixth, and seventh spots in the order and currently leads Pelicans regulars in games played (128), average (.278) and RBI (67) and is tied for the team lead in hits (131), walks (45), and doubles (29). Prince leads the Carolina League in on-base percentage (.371) and is the second-hardest batter to strike out in the league with one K per 11.83 plate appearances. The Poulsbo native also has made his mark on the Carolina League in a more painful way. Prince has been hit by pitches 29 times this season, a mark that ranks second in all of Carolina League history, one behind the single-season league record set by Winston-Salem’s Seth Loman last season

Update: Kitsap Pumas win playoff game, 1-0

UPDATE:

Kitsap hung for a 1-0 win over Ventura on Saturday morning in Fresno.

The Pumas have now reached the Premier Development League’s Elite 8 three straight seasons.

Kitsap plays the Victoria-Fresno winner Sunday at noon for a spot in next weekend’s Final Four. The game will be live streamed at kmas.com.

The Final Four site has not been announced. Kitsap did put in a bid to bring it to Bremerton.

U.S. Open Cup: Pumas win shootout in El Paso

The Kitsap Pumas have advanced to the second round of the U.S. Open Cup for the second straight season.

They overcame a long day of travel and oppressive heat to beat the El Paso Patriots — another USL Premier Development League team — in a shootout on Tuesday night. The score was tied 0-0 after regulation and after a pair of 15-minute overtime periods. It came down to a shootout and that was also exhausting as it went nine rounds before the Pumas were able to come away with a thrilling 6-5 advantage on goals made.

What’s it mean?

Well, the Pumas will host the Real Colorado Foxes on Tuesday, June 21 at Bremerton’s Memorial Stadium. If the Pumas win that one, it’s highly possible the Pumas could host the Seattle Sounders in a third-round game as the lower seed has the option of bidding to host the game.

How cool would that be?

Victorious Villopoto: ‘Sometimes it’s not about being the fastest’

Poulsbo’s Ryan Villopoto took advantage of a late crash to move from third to first during the AMA Supercross at the Georgia Dome in Atlanta on Saturday night. It was his third win of the season and left him 10 points ahead of James Stewart in the points race at the halfway point of the season.

Here’s a photo of Villopoto at the finish line.

Marvin gets a little help from his friends

Last time Marvin Williams played the Knicks, he was ejected after getting into it with New York’s Shawne Williams in a Jan. 28 game in Atlanta. According to this report in the New York Daily News, Williams called on a couple of friends to  help him out after getting heckled at Madison Square Garden in the return engagement earlier this week. Wonder if they were pals from Bremerton?
