Herriman boxer uses last year’s disappointment to fuel this year’s effort to earn a trip to Golden Gloves National Tournament

SALT LAKE CITY — Milo Gutierrez thought he’d worked hard enough to earn a trip to the National Golden Gloves Tournament last year. He was wrong. So the 22-year-old Herriman man made more sacrifices, worked even harder and developed a mental toughness he didn’t know he had. That effort paid off when he earned his first Golden Gloves regional championship Saturday afternoon at the Salt Palace with a win over Wrylee Padilla, Wyoming, in the 141-pound division. He is one of four Utah fighters who earned a spot on the Rocky Mountain National Team with victories in Saturday’s championships. Gutierrez fought and beat Padilla at last year’s regional, but it… Read More

Giveaways doom Real Salt Lake in first loss in the Mike Petke era

SANDY — Ahead of Saturday’s match against Atlanta, Real Salt Lake coach Mike Petke offered a insightful comment about what he hoped didn’t happen. “If we allow their press to slow our build-out, it’s going to crush us,” said Petke. Unfortunately for Petke, that’s exactly what happened. Atlanta played high pressure whenever RSL tried to play out of the back, which created periodic havoc and numerous giveaways. Atlanta pounced on two of those miscues, and that proved to be the difference as the expansion side earned a comfortable 3-1 victory at Rio Tinto Stadium. “The two goals they actually scored, they’re on us,” said Luke Mulholland. “We have the ball… Read More

Offensive struggles at root of Canadiens’ series loss to Rangers

NEW YORK – The Montreal Canadiens had their backs against the wall and a player who had 14 goals in 380 regular-season games and zero in 28 previous Stanley Cup Playoffs games was the only one to hit the back of the net for their team in their series-ending 3-1 loss to the New York Rangers Saturday night. It says everything about why they were ill equipped to advance any further. You could’ve scripted a lack of offence leading to their undoing. They had averaged less than 2.5 goals per game since Claude Julien took over on Feb. 14 and had scored only 10 goals in the five games that… Read More

Purdy: Sharks’ offensive frustration leads to an early spring

SAN JOSE The weather forecast for Edmonton on Monday night calls for snow and a low of 27 degrees. The Sharks would have loved to be there. No need to pack the suitcases now, not after Saturday night’s 3-1 loss to the Oilers in Game 6 of their first round series. The only cold the Sharks will feel is courtesy of the ice packs clinging to their bruised bodies as they head into the offseason. The defeat eliminated the beloved Los Tiburones from the Stanley Cup tournament three rounds before they went home a year ago when they reached the Final and lost in six games to the Pittsburgh Penguins.… Read More
