Two tries from Liam Williams helped Scarlets register their first Guinness PRO12 win of the season after they overcame Connacht 17-8 in a low quality basement battle at Parc y Scarlets.Scarlets came back from 8-7 down at the break to control the second half and leave the defending champions still looking for their first league point of this campaign.Williams went over either side of half-time with both tries converted by outside-half Rhys Patchell, who added a drop goal. Connachts try came from wing Niyi Adeolokun with Jack Carty kicking a penalty.This was a bottom of the table clash with Scarlets having lost their opening three games of the season and defending champions Connacht having suffered heavy home defeats against Glasgow and Ospreys.Aaron Shingler returned at blindside flanker with Aled Davies coming in at scrum-half to replace Gareth Davies, who had a virus.Connacht made seven changes from the team that played in the Zebre game which got abandoned because of torrential rain. And the inclement weather in Llanelli did not help two sides low on confidence.?Connacht just about edged a mistake-ridden first half with Scarlets cause not helped by Aled Thomas wayward kicking, the full-back missing three penalties inside the first 20 minutes.Those misses proved crucial as centre Bundee Aki broke into Scarlets 22 and when the ball was moved right, Adeolokun went over in the corner. Carty missed the conversion.Matters did not get much better for Scarlets when Patchell kicked his penalty attempt to the corner into the dead ball area. But Carty missed a penalty attempt at the other end before Scarlets broke their duck to go into the lead briefly when wing Williams ran in to finish off a move begun by a Shingler break, with Patchell converting.Their 7-5 lead only lasted three minutes before Carty kicked a final minute penalty after skipper Ken Owens had disrupted a Connacht maul illegally.In the second half wing Steff Evans went closest to scoring a try but with Scarlets still trailing the Welsh region brought on Scott Williams in a reorganised backline.Scarlets began to play on the front foot with scrum-half Aled Davies and Owens combining well before Williams went over in the left corner.The conversion was put over from the touchline by Patchell, who also kicked a 71st minute drop-goal to put his side nine points ahead to make sure they walked away with the points.Mike Gartner Stars Jersey .

On June 1, he was anesthetized and taken to Mary Bird Perkins - Our Lady of the Lake Cancer Center for stereotactic radiotherapy, or SRT, which delivered a precise, concentrated dose of radiation to Mikes cancer. The radiation dose was delivered in a single treatment and optimized to avoid normal tissues surrounding Mikes cancer in order to reduce the risk complications.On Oct. 3, Mike was taken to the Vet School for further observation and two days later it was announced that the cancer had returned and spread. The Tiger was returned to his habitat and spent much of his last week outside. Tiger fans came to offer flowers and notes and take pictures outside the cage with Mike VI before he was moved to hospice care for the remainder of his time.Mike VI, one of only two live tiger college mascots in the United States, was born on July 23, 2005, and came to LSU as a 2-year-old. At the time of his arrival, he weighed about 320 pounds and put on some 100 pounds during his years in the habitat.Mike VI was donated by Great Cats of Indiana, a nonprofit sanctuary and rescue facility for big cats and other large carnivores, located in Idaville, Ind. He was separated from his mother at two weeks old. He was first moved into the indoor portion of the habitat on Aug. 25, 2007, and was introduced to the LSU community on Sept. 1, 2007.He was known as Roscoe at the sanctuary in Indiana, but was officially christened Mike VI in a Sept. 14, 2007, ceremony. He debuted in Tiger Stadium on the evening of the LSU-Florida game on Saturday, Oct. 6, of that year.Mike VI was the first LSU mascot to have the use of new LSU Tiger Habitat, which was completed in August 20055, from his arrival until his departure.dddddddddddd The habitat incorporates natural substrates, including grass, and also includes elements of LSUs renaissance architecture and facts educating Mikes visitors on the live subspecies of tigers. Mikes yard encompasses 14,010 square feet (including his night house, 15,105).Mike VI had a personal veterinarian from the LSU School of Veterinary Medicine, Dr. David Baker, who was in charge of his overall healthcare and well-being. Besides Dr. Baker, there have been numerous other specialists at the veterinary school available to assist with the specialized healthcare that Mike has needed. Mikes daily care has been provided by two veterinary students. These students work with Mike in two year rotations until they graduate.Mike VI had a diet of some 20 pounds of food daily. His food was a formulated zoo carnivore diet, the same commercial food used for most of the large cats at the zoo. It consists of beef and all the necessary vitamins and minerals to maintain Mikes needs. It also allowed his student handlers to give him his meal designed during football season in the shape of the opponent or in spellings of words like LSU or Beat Bama.The tradition of the live Bengal Tiger started when the original Mike was purchased form the Little Rock Zoo in 1936 for $750 with money contributed by the student body. Originally known as Sheik at the time of his purchase, his named was changed to Mike to honor Mike Chambers who served as LSUs athletic trainer when the first mascot was purchased.Chambers was inducted into the LSU Athletic Hall of Fame in 2015.Dr. Baker has already begun a search for a young Tiger cub that can be brought to LSU to become Mike VII.According to the University announcement, there will not be a formal memorial service for Mike VI, but fans are encouraged to share their memories, stories and photos on social media using #MikeVI.
