2 IC"E"EY " EP"ESS Thursday, October 29, 2015 SECTION 2 SPORTS ullm in Photo by John McCallum Cheney senior Olivia Swenson controls a long ball against a Pullman defender during the first half of Saturday's regular season finale against the visiting Greyhounds. By JOHN McCALLUM Editor Inaway, lastSaturday's shootout loss to Pullman in the regular-season finale for both teams exemplified the Cheney girls' soccer team's season -- one break shy of success. After finishing 80 min- utes of regulation and 10 minutes of two overtime periods, the Lady Black- hawks and Greyhounds were tied at 3 with Pull- man preparing to take its fifth shot in the first round of five. Needing a goal to win, Anna Mari Petrino's shot struck the cross- bar almost dead center and went straight down, bouncing several times on the ground. After a few seconds, with Pullman players,left corner of Pullman's Blackhawks are the play- coaches and fans lobbying defensive end, worked a offs, with Cheney facing the ballwas inside the line pass back to Eaton whoa loser-out contest today for a score, and Cheney's crossed the ball in front (Thursday, Oct. 29) at players and fans waving of the net where Leliesecond place West Valley, it off, the referee signaled Holland rushed forward10-2, 11-4. the score that gave the to knock in the goalfromRadtke is excited Greyhounds the 2-1 win just outside the 18-yard about the match up, de- on the Lady Blackhawks box. spite Cheney losing all Senior Day.

Since Jones' reinstatement, the two have resumed their trash talking. But there's specula- tion that Jones will have a tune-up fight before a shot at the title. In a state- ment, the UFC wrote that it is currently discussing a potential date for Jones' rgturn, but there was no mention of Cormier as an opponent. While Jones' image as a fighter hasn't been tar- nished, his life outside of the octagon has taken a few hits over the years. The hit-and-run acci- dent wasn't his first run-in with legal trouble. In 2012, he was arrested for driving under the influence after he drove his vehicle into a pole. Before his fight with Cormier, he tested posi- tive for benzoylecgonme, a metabolite of cocaine. The Nevada State Athletic Commission didn't pre- vent Jones from fighting because benzoylecgonine is not banned out-of-com- petition by the World Anti- Doping Agency. Jones entered a one-night stay in rehab after the news came out. Although it reinstated Jones, the UFC isn't giving any leeway to their former champion. In a statement, Lorenzo Ferttita, UFC chairman and CEO, stated that he and the promotion has made it clear that they have ex- pectations from Jones and that his reinstatement is a "privilege, not a right." Part of Jones" condi- tions in the plea agree- ment includes 72 separate appearances for charity or youth outreach. His public relations team has already bombarded various news sources with pictures of Jones appearing at local Boys and Girls clubs, juve- nile detention centers and elementary schools. Hopefully, these good deeds are genuine and Jones can keep himself on the straight-and-narrow. Jones is regarded as one of the most dan- gerous fighters on the planet but his toughest opponent may in fact be, himself. Al Stover can be reached at al@cheneyfreepress.com.
