Tags: County Finals, Dorset, Lancashire, Nottinghamshire, Senior Men, Sussex 10 Oct 2018 It’s a title showdown after a day of drama Lancashire squeezed into a title showdown with Sussex for the English Senior Men’s County Championship after a dramatic second day’s play at Stanton-on-the-Wolds Golf Club.The Northerners were held to a draw by a resurgent Dorset team, who bounced back in style after a heavy defeat on the opening day. Meanwhile, Sussex kept up their winning ways with a 5.5-3.5 win over the host county, Nottinghamshire.The results so far give Sussex two wins from two matches and means they head into tomorrow’s finale knowing that a halved result will be enough to claim the trophy for the first time. For Lancashire, with one win and one half as they pursue their third title, it’s a simple case of win or fail.Today, Lancashire had to pull out all the stops after Dorset threatened to derail their progress. The South West champions took 2.5 points from the three morning foursomes, claiming the first one comfortably (5/4) and then holding their nerve to win another the last and finally to snatch a half, having been three down after 12.Dorset kept up the pressure in the singles, notably over the front nine, and Lancashire needed all their determination and experience to force the half.The first two singles results were both comfortable wins, with each county in turn taking a point. Then it was time for grit. Lancashire’s Tony Flanagan and Tony Holt both trailed over the front nine, both pulled it back, both edged ahead, and both were finally held to halved results by their Dorset opponents, respectively David Barton and Ashley Beckett (pictured top).It gave Dorset a guaranteed half in the match and Lancashire depended on a strong finish. It was delivered by British Senior Champion Trevor Foster (4/2) and his immediate predecessor, Bryan Hughes, (1up).Team captain Mike Gray commented: “This wasn’t what we wanted but the fightback means we are still in it and nothing has changed: we need to win tomorrow to win the championship.”Dorset captain Phil Addis was delighted with his team’s comeback. “Yesterday we just didn’t get out of the starting block, but today the lads have done us proud and, for a small county like Dorset, this is a great result.”In the other match Sussex continued their impressive progress – both in this championship and in their season as a whole. They’ve reached the finals of two other major senior events which will be played over coming weeks.But their focus tomorrow is Lancashire. Sussex captain Rick Thomas remarked: “It’s all to play for, against tough opposition. It won’t be a walk in the park, but we’re delighted to be part of this and to have this opportunity.”Sussex have looked confident and composed throughout this event, today holding off the challenge of the Nottinghamshire side.They led 2-1 after the foursomes, but were quickly caught in the singles when Nottinghamshire’s Ian Gretton sped off to win 7/6.Sussex edged ahead again with Martin Galway’s 3/2 win, but almost immediately Nottinghamshire’s Charles Banks answered him. Banks continued his unbeaten record with his 2/1 win, which featured an impressive birdie on the very difficult 16th green.But Mark Logan got up and down on the last to grab a half for Sussex and take the pressure off Thomas’s nerves, before the win was confirmed by Steve Graham (pictured above, left) and Malcolm Cawte.“Things felt a lot better after that half,” said Thomas. “All the games were tight and all had moments when they could have gone either way, but we managed to get the points.”Tomorrow’s matches are Dorset v Nottinghamshire and Sussex v Lancashire.Click here for full scoresImages copyright Leaderboard Photography
by Malik VincentPeople gathered on May 21 to recognize the contributions of both current and former Ozanam alumni, coaches, volunteers, and sponsors at its benefit dinner at Damon’s Grill and Sports Bar, Downtown.Vince Sims of WPXI-TV served as the evening’s Master of Ceremonies and conducted the silent auction. Some of the items sold included a ‘legends’ basketball signed by several greats, or what they refer to as “legendary alumni” that have participated in the program over the years. Another was a wood-burned art rendering by OZ’s executive director Curtis Cureton. There was also a raffle that included an autographed football signed by Robin Cole, Mike Meriwether, Mel Blount, and Craig Bingham—to name a few, as well as other sports-related items. OZANAM STAFF AND ALUMNI—Front row, from left: OZ Executive Assistant Darelle Porter, Alumna Dr. Mary Myers, Girls’ Program Director Karen Hall, and Executive Director Curtis Cureton. Back row, from left: Alumnus Chuck Crummie, Dwight “Ice Man” Clay, Jennifer Bruce-Scott, Chuck Franklin, Kirk Bruce, and acclaimed actor Lamman Rucker, who served as the event’s keynote speaker. “Until Ozanam gets the proper funding, it’s going to be a struggle,” program alumni Dwight Clay said. “Now, you can see that they’re on the right track to developing that type of leadership and following but they still need the funding.”Referred to as, ‘the Iceman’, Clay hit the game-winning shot to end UCLA’s NCAA Division I men’s record-longest 88 game winning streak back in January, 1974—a mark that still stands today.“As a young man, Ozanam prepared us intellectually, worldly, and skillfully in sports to take that beyond the Hill District boundaries,” Clay said. “It was just another vehicle presented to young men such as myself to utilize to continue my growth.”Dr. Mary Myers, who is now coordinator of Student Organizations at Cleveland State University, was one of the first female players in Ozanam to play with boys in the mid- ‘70s. Her Archerettes played together in the OZ summer league and then met later on in the regular-season at Fifth Avenue High School.From there, she took her talents to star at the University of Kansas.“We didn’t lose much, in fact, I don’t’ think we lost at all,” Myers said. “The time I spent with Ozanam earned me a scholarship. It provided me with an opportunity for exposure and an environment to cultivate. “Myers, who refers to the late Ozanam founder Karl Kohlman as ‘Daddy Kohlman’, said he was a “disciplinarian” who enjoyed girls basketball and who applied the idea that she called the “each one, teach one rule.”Cureton mentioned that the organization plans to continue Kohlman’s vision, financially, pursuing opportunities for funding by continuing to conduct community events and by obtaining more corporate sponsorship.“Back during the Kohlman era of Ozanam, many of its ventures were funded by his own organization. The Catholic Diocese (who was a key supporter, during that time) assisted with things such as the maintenance of the Community Center.”He feels one long-term solution to any financial difficulties is to build its alumni base and for it to campaign for more such gateways to gain such funding.Native son Lamman Rucker, an Ozanam alumnus, served as the event’s keynote speaker. In his address, he made several references to his pride in hailing from Pittsburgh and how he’s applied his experiences with the OZ program to his life.“Ozanam has been a pillar in the community, and in particular to the Hill District, for many years,” Rucker said. “It was a big part of my childhood. It’s as if your own family asked you to come back and asked you to tell what they mean to you. The fact that I’m here right now is a similar thing.”The famed actor moved to New York after earning his masters from Duquesne to fulfill his stage and screen aspirations. After performing in the theatre, he obtained work in television series, such as: “All of Us,” “House of Payne” and “Meet the Browns.” His major movie credits, to date, are Tyler Perry’s “Why Did I Get Married?” and “Why Did I Get Married Too?”“I can look around and see some of the results of that work we put in back in the OZ days,” Rucker said. “The other guys are here doing great things, whether it’s teaching, coaching, active in business, politics, (etc.). We’re all peers, so it’s no surprise that they’re thriving. I know them and that’s the way it’s always been. It’s good to see that they’re the same people that they were back then… (Their success) is no surprise.”(Malik Vincent can be reached at [email protected])
