Former Knights quarterback Israel warms up with one AFL team, plays for another
Former UCF quarterback Kyle Israel prepared to play in the Orlando Predators' home opener Friday night for the hometown Predators in the event the league's labor issues were not resolved and replacement players were used. As it turned out, the issues were not ironed out, but not all of the two team's original rosters were asked to stay away from the Amway Center, and Israel ended up being "drafted" as a replacement player for the visiting Pittsburgh Power.
"It's kind of surreal to walk into the Predators' locker room and end up on the Power," Israel told the Orlando Sentinel after the game.
The Predators lost the contest, 40-26.
Women's tennis shutout at home by No. 3 Duke
The No. 3 Duke Blue Devils (11-1) visited the UCF Tennis Complex on Friday and left their mark, sweeping their match with the UCF women's tennis team (4-8), 7-0, in an out-of-conference match. The Knights were unable to take any of the singles or doubles matches, although Andrea Yacaman and Taylor Dubins performed well against Duke's Mary Clayton and Ester Goldfeld in the No. 3 doubles position, falling 8-6.
