Today's Latest Sports

24th August 2016

The Western Collegiate Hockey Association announced changes to the overtime policy for league games today, saying that beginning this season (2016-2017) all games tied after regulation would continue with a traditional five-on-five sudden death overtime. If the game was still tied after the five-on-five overtime, another five minute overtime session will be played…also sudden death…but also with just three skaters aside.

Also new this year, the league will adopt 40 inch deep nets…the same used in the NHL…rather than the traditional 44 inch deep nets. The smaller nets will lead to more room for skaters behind the net.

The Beaver Radio Network had a chance to visit with Head Men’s Coach Tom Serratore about the changes. Listen here


Victor Martinez clubbed a two-run homer and Erick Aybar added a solo shot as the Tigers topped the Twins 8-3 at Target Field.  Brian Dozier went deep for the Twins, who have dropped five straight.  Kyle Gibson gave up five runs in five-plus frames to fall to 5-and-8 with the loss.

The Twins and Tigers resume their three-game series tonight at Target Field.  Tyler Duffey will get the start for Minnesota.  Detroit will send out left-hander Matt Boyd.

The Vikings continue to prepare for Sunday's preseason home opener against the San Diego Chargers at US Bank Stadium.  Minnesota is 2-and-0 so far following last Thursday's 18-11 win in Seattle.

The Wild are changing their goal celebration song to Prince's "Let's Go Crazy" to honor the Minnesota native.  The team decided to make the change after receiving feedback from season ticket holders this summer.

The Lynx will return to action on Friday at Connecticut.  Minnesota won six straight to enter the Olympic break 21-and-4 on the season.  The Sun are 8-and-16.
