The Belle Vue Aces ended the Poole Pirates unbeaten record at Wimborne Road with a 49-41 win on Monday evening. Terrance Ferguson Jersey. It was nip and tuck throughout the meeting before the away side came on strong towards the end to take the victory on a tricky track. Scott Nicholls was the hero for the Aces scoring 12 whilst Hans Andersen scored 9+1 for the home side.The Poole reserves of Brady Kurtz and Adam Ellis got the first 5-1 of the evening in heat two before the Aces responded immediately in heat three as Nicholls and Craig Cook both hunted down the early leader Joonas Kylmakorpi, passing the Finn one by one in a stunning heat. The Aces then took the lead in heat four as Steve Worrall beat Chris Holder to the chequered flag with brother Richie Worrall in third for a 4-2 to the Aces. Watch the Belle Vue pair of Scott Nicholls and Craig Cook hunt down the lone Pirate to combine for a 5-1 to the Aces Two shared heats followed as Cook was controversially excluded for moving at the tapes twice in heat six. The Pirates were back in front after heat seven though as Kylmakorpi combined with Andersen for a maximum to the home side. It was all level again after nine heats though as the Worrall brothers combined for another 4-2. Craig Cook was excluded in heat six at Wimborne Road The Aces kicked on from this point in proceedings though and hit a 5-1 in heat 10 as Matej Zagar won and Max Fricke worked hard to get past Kyle Newman in second. The Aces extended the lead in heat 11 as the impressive Nicholls swooped round Andersen on the back straight of the first lap with partner Cook in third for a 4-2. Reaction from both team managers as Belle Vue won at Poole in the Elite League Mark Lemons side essentially won the tie in heat 13. The Pirates pair of Bjarne Pedersen and Andersen gated on a 5-1 to the home side but Andersen got into trouble on the bumpy track and fell going into the fourth turn of the first lap and was excluded. Zagar was in good form in the re-run passing Kylmakorpi to take the win with Cook in third.Nicholls brought the win home for the Aces with one heat to go beating Holder with Richie Worrall in third giving them a ten point lead. Andersen won heat 15 with Pedersen in third for a Pirates heat advantage but it wasnt enough to stop Belle Vue taking the maximum four points from the meeting.

Edwin Encarnacion had a two-out, bases loaded two-RBI double in the third inning. Kevin Durant Jersey. The Dutchmans tenure got off to a poor start when referee Guido Winkmann awarded a penalty within two minutes for Niklas Starks clumsy challenge on Alexandru Maxim. http://www.thunderteamstore.com/Cheap-Sh...Thunder-Jersey/. With the first unit struggling of late and Amir Johnson - one of the teams iron men - hobbling on an injured right ankle, Patterson knew he could get the nod in a challenging matchup against one of the leagues up and coming players at his position.Detroit Lions wide receiver Calvin Johnson - one of the leagues best players - has officially retired today. Our sportswriter Alex Ferguson, writing from the USA, looks at Johnsons history and says goodbye to a legend…. The strangest thing about Calvin Johnson, when you reflect on his career and his heroics, is the fact that he wasnt widely-recruited in high school, and wasnt even listed in the top 100 of high school players.Only Georgia Tech, Georgia, Miami and Notre Dame vied for his signature, with Tech winning out. Despite awful quarterback play, he became one of the most untouchable wide receivers that college football had even seen. And while it was clear from the outset that Johnson would be great, he only seriously flourished in his third year, where he won the award for the best wide receiver, several conference awards, and was a consensus pick to the All-American team - college footballs equivalent of a Pro Bowl. He had 76 receptions, 1,202 receiving yards and 15 touchdowns, and left Georgia Tech with several school records under his belt and the promise of millions.And they arrived, when Detroit picked Johnson as the second pick in the 2004 Draft. JaMarcus Russell was picked first. I wonder who had the better NFL career…. With Calvin Johnson retiring have a look back at the top ten plays of his career. Courtesy of NFL Network The careerJohnson wasnt a dominant receiver…until his second year. In his first, he had 48 receptions for a tidy 756 yards (15.8 yards/game) and 4 TDs, making Jon Kitna looking like a somewhat relevant quarterback. And thanks to the fact that he could go up and get any ball thrown to him, he was given the nickname Megatron by his teammate Roy Williams. He should have been given the name Makes Us Look Better too, but I dont think that one would have stuck…He then led the league in receiving touchdowns, was fourth in receptions, and had his first 1,000 yard receiving season (1,331) - despite having no constant quarterback throwing to him (the Lions went through three that season). Johnson leaves the NFL as one of its greatest ever players Johnson struggled in production in 2009 as new QB Matt Stafford found his feet, other playerrs and problems with his knees, and the Lions had to replace him with Daunte Culpepper and Drew Stanton. Patrick Patterson Jersey. You cant help but thinking it was more poor quarterback play than Johnson heroics.But by the turn of the decade, Johnson was one of the best wide receivers in the league - if not the best.From 2010 to 2015, he went to five straight Pro Bowls. He had five straight 1000+ receiving yard seasons, which included a stunning 1,964 season in 2012 - which broke the record for all-time receiving yards in a season, smashing Jerry Rices record of 1,848 which had held up for 17 years (by the way, he had 1,681 in 2011 which was seventh on the all-time list at the time).Hell retire with 67 touchdowns in 104 games, and plenty of other inclusions on all-time career top 25 lists. He probably could have broken more records or made more lists, but that would have had to be with a better offensive line and frankly, a better quarterback. And another good wide receiver to take attention away from him (which the Lions rarely seemed to want to sign). Megatron retires The full story as Calvin Johnson calls time on his NFL career ESPN in the USA remarked that he probably wont go in a first ballot Hall of Famer. In my view, why shouldnt he? There hasnt been a better wide receiver in years.The sadnessJohnson had already said in January that he was thinking about retirement - or a move.Im happy for him that he decided to retire as a Detroit Lion, following on from the great Barry Sanders, who also retired in his prime. I dont like the thought that Johnson would play for another team.Johnson didnt even go for a huge press conference. He just put out a release, apologised for not having a press conference (showing the kind of grace and humility it seems no NFL wide receiver has right now), thanked God and the Lions owners, and apologised again for not bringing the Motor City a Super Bowl victory. Even though it was far from being his fault. Johnson never played in a Super Bowl but left plenty or memories and records Like Marshawn Lynch, he didnt leave the league with his body a broken mess - unlike Peyton Manning, who retired a day before.But unlike Manning, who we saw in plenty of Super Bowls, we never got to see Johnson play in one. It would have been fun to see him make cornerbacks and safeties look exceptionally stupid on the biggest stage.But after seeing him as a college and pro player, Im thankful that I saw Calvin Johnson.But like Peyton Manning and Marshawn Lynch, the game of American Football will be all the poorer without him.Have your say on Megatron below. A future Hall of Famer, surely? One the greatest ever? Fill in the form below and let us know what you think and who else would figure in an all-time wide receivers list.
