Indian Super League (ISL) club Odisha FC have announced a new partnership with the Dhenkanal District Athletic Association.

In this agreement, the sports body has been designated as the club’s new technical partner for the current season.

The deal was announced by the ISL club via their official social media platform. The post said, “We are pleased to announce that the club has entered into a technical partnership with the Dhenkanal District Athletic Association 🟣⚫

Recently the unit also signed a sponsorship renewal with Russell Roof Tiles. The extension of this sponsorship means that the tile brand will remain the club’s community and kit partner for the current season.

On the pitch, Odisha FC surprised everyone with their performance against East Bengal FC. The match, which was played on November 18, had a brilliant comeback. Kalinga Warriors recorded yet another comeback win, beating the Kolkata-based club.

Odisha FC head coach Josep Gombau took a risk at half-time by introducing four players, and it made up for it with three of his four substitutes paired with the four goals they managed to score in second period.

Odisha FC have come from behind to win three of their four games this season, showing their courage and determination. During this season, Odisha have collected nine points from losing positions, more than any other team.

Saturday night business.

The DCAA held its 91st Annual General Meeting November 12 at Bear Mountain Ski Hill.

Dawson Creek Athletic Association president Dennis Kesterke said the golf committee had a good year.

“We continued to fundraise for sporting events, and golf committees made a profit of $17,000 in 2022,” he said.

“The ski resort has been used more – so many families and children.”

Pat O’Reilly presented the Nordic Club report. He said the main plan for the purchase is to replace the groomers and the tracker.

O’Reilly noted that if it’s a Nordic ski club, 85% of the on-site work is done during the other three non-winter months.

Jim Wickstrom said Dawson Creek Golf and Country Club was a two-season affair. They started late this year but finished the season strong and hope the greens will be in good shape after the thaw.

Kesterke said some things were still secret and ongoing with the DCAA and the golf club,

“We are looking at a few projects and it should be an exciting time at the club.”

The organization is hosting its 12th annual Bear Wear party on November 19 at the ski resort. There are 20 teddy bears in different themes for sale by Silent Auction and more. For more information, call 250-719-9171. Funds raised go to Bear Mountain Ski Hill projects.

The Chicago Athletic Association (CAA) is an elite, hidden, and multi-faceted space in the heart of the Loop. Located directly across from Millennium Park, the CAA is primarily an established hotel where tourists can retreat to from busy Michigan Avenue. Plus, there are several bars and restaurants waiting for you inside, including Cindy’s rooftop bar and a Shake Shack; However, I think the crown jewel of this hotel is their lounge.

This large room is entirely designed in wood with large functional fireplaces and soft armchairs and sofas on which hotel guests and tourists can sit. The ambience of the space resembles a library in the Harry Potter book series or an Ivy League college study lounge. There are plenty of tea, coffee, libation and light snack choices on their menu for when a waiter stops by. For those looking for more activity, directly across from the drawing room is a game room, with a pool table, bocce ball, and shuffleboard.

You’ll often see a group of employees at this location on a happy hour outing after work. There are plenty of ways to explore this hotel’s public spaces, and it’s a place to score and rest after a stroll through Millennium Park or the Art Institute.

ADRIAN – A few years ago, it would have been easy to imagine Brady McKelvey scoring a last-second shot for Adrian Lenawee Christian to win a basketball game or for him to find the back of the net with a game-winning football goal.

But fast forward to today and McKelvey might be more likely to score a game-winning field goal for the No. 2-ranked 8-man Cougars football team.

“I watched football of course, but I never played it until last year,” McKelvey said. “It’s interesting. It was great fun. I’m glad Coach (Bill) Wilharms asked us to try.

McKelvey is a two-sport athlete in the fall, playing for both the Lenawee Christian soccer and football teams. He played on MHSAA championship teams in both sports. Last week, McKelvey reached rare territory when he scored his 100th career extra point – the state record for 8-man football.

“We were never great football players,” McKelvey said, referring to him and his brother, Jacob, now a student at the University of Michigan. “We have always had a football in our hands.”

Wilharms is the strength and conditioning coach and college football coach of Lenawee Christian, who became an 8-man powerhouse, winning Division 1 championships in the 2020 and 2021 seasons. Brady and Jacob McKelvey s were training at the LCS facility two springs ago when Wilharms asked if they wanted to try kicking for the football team.

“I always wondered what it would be like to kick a soccer ball,” Brady McKelvey said. “I always wanted to do it, but I never got the chance. We were excited to try it.

The two came out for the team last season and were coached by Casey Opsal, a former Hudson kicker and now Lenawee County Sheriff’s Deputy who is one of Wilharms’ aides. With Opsal’s guidance, Jacob and Brady became exceptional kickers.

“He’s the person who taught me everything I know about it,” McKelvey said. “He helped me a lot to improve myself.”

McKelvey has never attended a football camp or taken a course on how to kick a football from anyone outside of LCS staff. Still, his stats are nothing short of amazing.

Last season, McKelvey had a streak of 52 consecutive extra points at one point and finished the season with 59 of 61 attempts. He has a current streak of 23 consecutive games heading into this week’s game and is 44 of 45 altogether this year. In two seasons, that makes him 103 for 106. He scored his first field goal earlier this season, giving him 106 career hitting points.

Twice in his career he scored 10 extra points in a game. This year he has hit at least eight PATs for four consecutive weeks. He also averages around 45 yards per kickoff.

Wilharms said he was happy McKelvey had decided to try his hand at football and said the elder was still learning the nuances of football, such as where to place the ball at kick-offs.

McKelvey, with father Scott McKelvey and mother Melissa Dempsey. “He’s a good athlete,” Wilharms said. “His PATs are consistent. We are really happy to have him in the team.

Brady and Jacob shared duties last season, although by the end of the season Jacob was starting and Brady was handling most of the extra points.

“At first one of us would come out and kick and the next time the other would come out,” McKelvey said. “Towards the end of the season I was better at extra points and he was better at kick-off. It’s cool to be part of a team that scores a lot because you hit a lot.

LCS has no trouble scoring. The Cougars are 6-1 and averaging 49.8 points per game.

Football continues to be McKelvey’s favorite sport. The Cougars are also having a strong season on the field, and he’s a big part of this team’s success as well.

“I still love football,” McKelvey said.

Cougars soccer coach Nathan Sharpe said McKelvey is a team leader. He has three goals and three assists this fall. “He’s a captain and a key player for our team,” Sharpe said.

McKelvey said kicking the ball in soccer and kicking in soccer are very different things that require different technique.

“It’s amazingly different,” he said. “A soccer ball is much bigger. You have more room to hit it. You want to bend over and try to keep it down. A soccer ball, you have to make a very different kind of contact because you want to get it going through the air.

“The first time I kicked a football without a frame was interesting. I had to try and completely change the way I kicked.

He’s learned the technique so much that this winter he plans to skip basketball so he can attend soccer camps. He hopes to become good enough to try out or get into a college football team.

“I didn’t really expect to be as consistent as I have been,” he said. “You watch college kickers, and even they miss sometimes. I work on it as much as I can. With football games, there are times when I can’t go to football practice, but I try to get out as much as possible.

“I think it would be great to kick college,” he added. “I plan to go to some camps this winter. If I am able to walk somewhere, it would be fine for me.

Besides football, the McKelveys also have a background in basketball. Their father Scott coached boys and girls basketball in Lenawee County for years. He was recently hired as the boys’ varsity coach at Blissfield. The boys grew up as managers and hung around the teams Scott coached.

McKelvey sets the bar high in the 8-player football record books. LCS still has two regular season games to play and is considered one of the favorites to make a long run in the playoffs, which means it could push that number of extra points much higher.

“I’m very happy to have tried out for the team,” he said. “Being part of it is a lot of fun. The guys on the team have always treated me like part of the team. I really like being on the team. All the success we have makes it so much fun.

RICHMOND, Va. (October 6, 2022) – Colonial Athletic Association competition heats up with the schedule turning to October, as a sold-out field hockey Friday is joined by the midpoint of the league game in men’s soccer and weekends of competition in soccer and women’s volleyball. Additionally, the CAA champions compete in Wilmington and the majority of conference cross country teams converge on the Lehigh Valley.

Three teams — Delaware, Hofstra and Towson — remained unscathed, posting 6-0 conference records in the first three weeks of the CAA schedule. All eyes should be on Newark this weekend with a battle of undefeated and serial teams as Delaware hosts Towson.

The series could go a long way in determining the regular season champion and CAA tournament standings.

Plus, Hofstra is trying to stay undefeated against Charleston in an intriguing game. When the Pride and the Cougars get together, the competition is fierce. Charleston maintains a slim 11-10 advantage in the all-time series, and nine of the 21 games have come in five sets.
