Youngster playing beyond his years

September 16, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: egielqmer.

first_imgTo his fellow Minnesota natives, he’s a high school state hockey tournament poster child. To Badger fans, he’s a standout freshman and the scorer that helped send a top-ranked archrival home without a win last weekend. But inside the locker room, he’s Billy B.“My real name is William. So they found that out…” William Grant Besse said with a laugh, hiding his embarrassment with a smile.To his teammates, Besse is a fast, smart player who came into the Wisconsin men’s hockey program a true freshman and a hyped recruit. Unsure of what to expect from the next Minnesota high school hockey protégé, the Badger players soon got to know what they describe as a cool, humble, down to earth guy. And when Besse was selected by the Anaheim Ducks in the fifth round of the NHL draft in June, he became Billy B. to the others in cardinal red and white.“None of us knew until he got drafted and we were like, ‘is that Besse?’” senior center Mark Zengerle, better known to his team as Zengs, said. So the nicknames Willy, Bill and Billy B. began.Since his first series as a Badger back in October when he scored a game-winning goal at home give UW a series sweep over Northern Michigan, Besse has made a name for himself among fans as the guy who knows how to get it done at home, having recorded all 12 of his points this season on the Kohl Center ice sheet.Last weekend against then-No. 1 Minnesota, Besse skated in UW’s top line alongside Zengerle and sophomore left winger Nic Kerdiles. Head coach Mike Eaves said during the series that he wanted to give Besse the opportunity while senior winger Tyler Barnes remained out of the lineup with a shoulder injury.That opportunity paid off as Besse scored the first goal for Wisconsin in game two of to the series last Friday night and assisted on Kerdiles’ game-winner to give UW a series sweep in the border battle.“It was a peak of things we hope can be there on a regular basis,” Eaves said. “He has the confidence to play with anybody right now and we need him to continue on the path that he showed us this past weekend.”Although pleased with his performance, Besse sees consistency as the biggest challenge for himself moving forward.Hoping to get in a groove with the upcoming series on the road against Ohio State, both Besse and Eaves know he possesses the potential after the big weekend performance and confidence running high.“He is on the right path, there’s no magic trail…it’s going to take a little bit of time but he’s on the right path,” Eaves said.Consistency may be what Besse is after, but the 5-foot-10, 178-pound winger has shown he can step up to the plate even as a freshman.“Grant is the type of player that you can throw him anywhere. He’s very smart, very skilled and very fast,” Zengerle said. “It takes some of those guys, true freshmen, a little time to adjust [to college hockey] but I think just because of his hockey sense and his speed he was able to adjust a little quicker.”“That was one of the biggest goals of the year and that’s just the type of player he is,” Zengerle added about Besse’s goal against Minnesota.Despite being a naturally skilled player, Besse was not the stereotypical Minnesota kid raised in a hockey-crazed family. In fact, he was the first in his family to lace up the skates and pick up a stick. A Plymouth, Minn. native, Besse originally wanted to be a goaltender after seeing gear that “looked pretty sweet” in the basement of a friend’s house at a young age.“I originally wanted to be a goalie but decided I wasn’t very good, so I tried to be a skater and just have ever since,” Besse said.Skating came more naturally for Besse, who made his way onto the varsity team as a freshman at Benilde-St. Margaret High School. Not long after his first high school start, Besse came to UW on an unofficial visit and knew then that Wisconsin was where he wanted to go.“Seeing the Kohl Center, compared to what I had played in for high school, was just two drastic, different things,” Besse said. “There were just so many things that caught my eye that made me want to come here.”While surfacing in big moments is a trait UW has learned about Besse, it is a skill he had in his back pocket even before taking to the ice in Wisconsin. As a junior in high school, Besse led his team to a high school hockey state championship, scoring all five goals in his team’s 5-1 victory and setting a tournament record. Of the five goals he scored back on March 10, 2012 in front of 17,607 screaming fans, three of them were short-handed.“We kind of did a double take. Like, he did what?” Eaves said, recalling hearing about his recruit’s performance. “So that’s a pretty unique situation and one he will look on when he is older.”But for Besse, it wasn’t so much the game that meant the world to him, but rather its significance to his team, the community and one particular screaming onlooker in the stands.On Dec. 30 of that season, Besse’s teammate, sophomore Jack Jablonski, suffered a spinal cord injury during a JV game that left him paralyzed from the chest down. The entire community rallied around the kid they all referred to as “Jabs” and his family, Besse and Jabs’ teammates wanted to bring home a championship in his honor. To accomplish such a feat meant so much more than the five goals.“Being able to rally back and end up winning the state tournament and seeing the look on his face while we were in the locker room,” Besse said. “That moment when we were in the locker room that we accomplished our goal from the beginning of the season despite everything that had happened—that was probably the best moment.”Besse said he still talks with Jablonski on a regular basis and has remained close with his high school coach and the hockey community since coming to UW. Besse is now both an experienced player of hockey and of life, bringing an outlook to UW that many young, aspiring athletes don’t have.“There is more to life than just hockey. At that point in my life, that is all I really cared about to be honest,” he said. “But seeing that injury and what happened to him and seeing everything you take for granted on a daily basis being taken away from someone who now can’t do simple day-to-day tasks. It just makes me so appreciative for what I have.”last_img read more

Angels can’t overcome costly first-inning error in loss to Blue Jays

August 26, 2020 | By admin | No Comments | Filed in: pllavecyf.

first_img Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros In Richards’ previous start, he gave up a two-run homer after a two-out error by Zack Cozart, and those were the only runs in a 2-0 loss to the Houston Astros. On Saturday, Andrew Heaney gave up a grand slam after a two-out error, and that again was enough to beat the Angels.This time, Richards managed to hold the Blue Jays for the next four innings, but the Angels hitters couldn’t do enough to erase the deficit.They managed two runs in the fourth, but they could have had more after the first three hitters of the inning reached. They wasted runners by hitting into double plays in the second and seventh. In the eighth, Martín Maldonado led off with a double and scored on a groundout and a flyout.“We still tried to battle,” Young said. “Still tried to put some runs on the board. Garrett did a great job after that inning, recovering and putting up zeroes on the board for us. I don’t think the guys were deflated. It definitely (stinks) to make a mistake like that in the first inning to start the game, and that kind of set the tempo of the game. But the guys did a good job turning the page and trying to battle back. We just couldn’t get enough.” Richards then threw a slider that Morales pounded into the right-field seats, making it 5-0.The Angels have, statistically, been one of the best defensive teams in the majors this season, but they’ve sprinkled in a few more errors lately, and they have been costly.Related Articles Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Clippers, Mavericks brace for the unknown in Game 4 center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Mike Trout, with bat and glove, helps Angels end losing streak “We were a little flat tonight as a group,” Richards said. “But we’ll be able to come back and get them tomorrow.”Richards suggested a late arrival in Toronto on Sunday night, followed by an off day on Monday, was responsible for the team being “flat.”Certainly, an ugly first inning can make any team look that way.Richards had allowed a run on two hits and a walk in the first, but he appeared to be out of the inning with no more damage when Martin hit a fly ball to right.Sign up for Home Turf and get 3 exclusive stories every SoCal sports fan must read, sent daily.

The ball nicked off Young’s glove, and two runs scored. Garrett Richards then compounded the error by giving up a two-run homer to Kendrys Morales.At that point, the Blue Jays had a 5-0 lead, which was too much to overcome for a team that has now hit .176 and scored 25 runs in its last 10 games.last_img read more
