McCall happy to escape with win

first_imgSaracens director of rugby Mark McCall was a relieved man after his side had a close encounter with Connacht at the Sportsground before emerging 23-17 victors in the Heineken Cup. Owen Farrell kicked two second-half penalties to complete a personal 13-point tally and steer the Sarries home but the Aviva Premiership leaders had ridden out a frantic finish, with Connacht duo Aly Muldowney and Paul O’Donohoe going close to scoring tries. McCall’s men had started like a train with backs Chris Wyles and Chris Ashton crossing in the opening nine minutes, but Connacht roared back and tries from man-of-the-match Kieran Marmion and Danie Poolman had them level by the break. “But when you get a game that close, there was no doubt that some of the calls were right, but it’s just consistency. “To get a penalty against us for holding on and, in that last play of the game going for a win, if you take a look at the video and have a look at how many (Saracens) guys are offside, in from the side – all the things we were penalised for. “That’s what I struggle with, it really hurts me because I feel for our team. Those guys have given everything and they deserve better.” Sarries had most of the possession and territory in the third quarter, with TMO decisions ruling out lunges for the try-line from George Kruis and Neil de Kock. “It’s an important four points. It was a tough and physical game so I am just happy to come here and take the points,” admitted McCall, whose side reached the semi-finals last season. “Fair play to Connacht, they kicked just about everything tonight and found space in our back field and put us under real pressure when they got their tries and got a real energy from that. “We did not cope with that all that well. We had started the game great and also the start of the second half, and had a couple of chances which we didn’t take, but they defended bravely and had that chance at the end, so I am just grateful to come away with a result. “I thought our team had a lot of energy and there was no lack of effort or urgency, but we didn’t do well with our kicking game and most of the pressure of the game came from that area so I am just happy to come here and get a result. “We know it’s a difficult place.” Meanwhile, Connacht head coach Pat Lam said he was disappointed with the inconsistencies in referee Pascal Gauzere’s decisions which he believes prevented his side from getting a possible upset. He said: “There were big calls at crucial times, but I am so proud of my team particularly up front where the boys were massive. Press Associationlast_img read more

Leave My Son Alone, Courtois’ Father Tells Madrid Media

first_imgThibaut Courtois’ father has accused the Madrid media of bullying his son following Real Madrid’s woeful performance against Ajax that saw them dumped out of the Champions League.Thierry Courtois believes the Spanish and Flemish press have ‘targeted’ his boy after he shipped four goals, including a Lasse Schone free kick, against the Eredivisie side last week at the Bernabeu.It’s not the first time the former Chelsea goalkeeper has faced criticism since joining Real last summer and his dad is refusing to keep quiet on the matter. ‘I feel that everyone is targeting Thibaut,’ Courtois’ father said. ‘The Spanish press, and also the Flemish. As a father, I cannot ignore that.‘A goalkeeper is always the first target, it is part of the job. For right or wrong, I let you judge that.‘But after the match against Ajax, he was targeted because of the fourth goal after he’d played well. This single mistake has taken on huge proportions.‘There are also personal things that come out in the press. I see the intentions of journalists to my son.‘I’m struggling with that, but luckily Thibaut is above that. He knows what to do and is aware of his qualities and he will not doubt himself.’Courtois’ future at the club is also in doubt following Monday’s huge announcement that Zinedine Zidane has returned as manager.Zidane, who originally blocked Courtois’ move to the club during his first stint in charge, could reinstate Keylor Navas as his No 1 again having trusted the Costa Rican previously.Real paid Chelsea £35million for Courtois last summer but may ship him off should they receive a good enough offer for the Belgium international.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Syracuse survives scare against St. Francis

first_img Published on November 18, 2013 at 9:48 pm Contact Stephen: sebail01@syr.edu | @Stephen_Bailey1 Facebook Twitter Google+ Finally, St. Francis unraveled. Thirty-nine minutes of heart-wrenching, November-upset scare later, Syracuse finally forced two turnovers. Jerami Grant finally made two free throws.The Terriers, who upset Miami (Fla.) 66-62 in their opener, nearly pulled off another mammoth win. Instead, Grant and Michael Gbinije recorded steals in the final 1:02 and the No. 9 Orange escaped with a 56-50 victory in the Carrier Dome on Monday.Three times Syracuse pushed its lead as wide as eight in the first half, and three times St. Francis battled back. The Terriers refused to be bullied around.Coming out of the locker room at halftime, the St. Francis players chanted “ACC, ACC.” They’d been there before, and they made sure SU knew with a 9-2 run to open the second stanza.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textJalen Cannon swished a jumper before a monstrous Grant block turned into an Anthony White 3-pointer. Then Cannon beat DaJuan Coleman off the dribble to make it 35-32 with 15:28 to play.When the Orange turned to ACC preseason player of the year Fair, the Terriers turned to Lowell Ulmer. He stuck with Fair on a spin in one possession. Tied him up on the next. Then drew a charge with 12:03 left.Ben Mockford swished a 3-pointer to push St. Francis’ lead to 43-40 nearly five minutes later before turning toward the SU student section and pounding his chest.About a minute later, Gbinije lay on his back with his hands on his head. Jim Boeheim stood on the sidelines with his hands on his head.The previously silenced student section erupted with chants of “bullsh*t” after Gbinije was called for a block with 6:22 left. Syracuse already trailed 45-42.Nothing could go right for the Orange. At that point C.J. Fair was 2-for-12. Rakeem Christmas looked lost in the paint. St. Francis was shooting about 45 percent from the field and matching the Orange on the glass.The minutes dragged on as Mockford swished a corner 3 and Boeheim turned back and forth on the sideline.It wasn’t until Grant jumped into Wayne Martin’s passing lane with 62 seconds left and lofted a pass ahead to Gbinije who laid it in that Syracuse regained the lead at 52-50.A White turnover led to two Grant free throws before Fair sealed it at the foul line with two more.A Christmas block with 15 seconds left sent the crowd into an uproar as the Orange eluded what would’ve been its worst loss in recent memory.

Rossier game assists high schoolers

first_imgA new USC-produced card game offers high school students an innovative way to prepare for college.Application Crunch, a game produced by the Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis at the USC Rossier School of Education in partnership with USC’s Game Innovation Lab, uses simple rules to teach students the strategy of applying to college.College knowledge · The game Application Crunch was developed by the USC Rossier School of Education and the USC Game Innovation Lab. – Photo illustration by Ani Kolangian | Daily TrojanThe game is now available in the Pertusati University Bookstore  and at collegeologygames.com. The website also includes the option of donating a game to a local school.Players start the game with an assigned role, such as a student with average grades looking for a scholarship, and have to make a series of choices to help that student achieve their goals.William Tierney, director of CHEPA, said the center developed Application Crunch to give low-income students “access to higher education, a mentoring program and a writing program to help them get into college and be better prepared for college.”Though many college preparatory programs are available, Tierney said few are affordable enough for low-income or first-generation college students.“If you think about poor schools, we’ve got most of the kids as first- generation college applicants,” Tierney said. “And then they’re in schools where there are very few of their peers going to college and they often don’t have adequate advising.”Tierney first realized the need for a program of this kind three years ago, when he approached then-Provost C. L. Max Nikias for a grant. With university funding, Rossier brought USC’s Game Innovation Lab onto the project and chose the name Collegeology Games.Graduate students in Rossier’s Ph.D. and research programs also helped develop the game.Post-doctoral research associate Zoë Corwin worked on research and development for Application Crunch and said the key to the game is its strategy.“If you are role-playing and you are picking the stakes and learning strategy, like, ‘I need to be on top of my deadline and get good grades to get into college,’ you learn so much more,” Corwin said.Collegeology Games conducted focus groups in L.A. high schools and compiled statistics from national surveys to make Application Crunch as relevant to students as possible. Tierney said Rossier has continued to conduct more research on the most efficient ways to teach students.“We’re at a university, [so] we are concerned about not just creating a game but creating a game that can be valid and reliable,” Tierney said. “We’re constantly doing research to make sure the learning is as [maximized] as possible.”Following the success of Facebook applications like FarmVille and Family Feud, Collegeology Games hopes to launch a Facebook version of the game in March to reach more high school students.“Imagine how you would respond to someone lecturing you about college versus a game with social networking that’s fun. Information is good, but it has to be fun for kids to get interested,” Corwin said. “That’s why this game is working so well.”last_img read more

Carlos Adames puts Dominican boxing on his back, sends message to U.S. tourists concerned about visiting D.R.

first_imgThe reaction of Terence Crawford’s trainer, Brian McIntyre, said it all. McIntyre, a wide grin plastered across his face, let out a hearty laugh and threw his own fists in a frenzy from Top Rank’s broadcast booth.“That was a good ending,” McIntyre said. “Good ending.” “I want to face the best,” he continued. “I want to fight against all of them. I thought (Jaime) Munguia was going to give me the opportunity, but I’m hearing that now he’s moving up in weight.“There’s a lot of good fighters in the division — I want to face all of them,” he continued. “There’s also (Jermell) Charlo and some other guys in the division that I want to face. But I just want to face the best fighters.”Doing so would allow him to inch closer to a world title and further cement him as the face of Dominican boxing — for many years to come. “That was a good ending!” Just wait for @BomacBrian’s reaction at the end of #AdamesDay 🤣🤣@CrystinaPoncher @TheEricRothman pic.twitter.com/kn6z7bNjyQ— Top Rank Boxing (@trboxing) July 2, 2019Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearHis animated offering came in response to Carlos Adames landing 20 hard punches in a ferocious flurry over the final minute of his dominating, unanimous-decision victory over Patrick Day at the Pechanga Resort & Casino in Temecula, Calif. on June 28. Adames was way up on the scorecards and didn’t need to unleash that kind of powerful barrage.He did so anyway, displaying his hunger for more in the process.In many ways, McIntyre’s reaction should reflect the boxing community — pundits and fans alike — and its excitement for the 25-year-old bruising junior middleweight who keeps adding to his body count, now 18-0 with 14 KOs.“I just want to say to all the fighters in the division that ‘Caballo Bronco’ is here to stay,” Adames — who flew back to his native Dominican Republic following the win — told Sporting News in Spanish, through an interpreter. “I’m a top fighter. I’m a problem for every single one of them (in the division) and if they don’t want to face me, they better move up in weight because I’m coming for all of them.”And fast. The win over Day was the thumping puncher’s third victory of 2019. He still has the back half of the year with which he, his trainer Robert Garcia and Top Rank can play. Adames intends to close the year as strongly as he ended his fight with Day — ferociously.“I want to keep active,” told SN. “I want to keep fighting the maximum fights that I can fight. I like it that way. If the company offers me fights, I’m going to take them.”Adames’ urgent mindset goes further than just zeroing in on one of the division’s world champions, whether it be Jaime Munguia (WBO), Julian Williams (IBF/WBA) or Tony Harrison (WBC). That exigency is also about Adames shouldering the load of the Dominican Republic and filling what he feels has been a void for the Caribbean nation — a face to represent it for boxing.“I feel very happy because of the support from my country and my countrymen have given me,” he said. “I feel like we needed that for a very long time — someone to represent us well in boxing. I feel like that’s my responsibility and that’s what I want to do — I want to become the face of Dominican boxing.”MORE: Demetrius Andrade brilliant again, but Canelo, GGG fights not in sight yetThe nation’s youth frequently gravitates to baseball, a penchant that has produced 102 Major League Baseball players on opening day-rosters this season, spelling 11.6 percent of the MLB’s player base, as reported by The Associated Press. Adames, though, said he never flirted with the baseball diamond, opting for the sweet science at 12 years old to stay out of trouble. If he did ever get out line, Adames had plenty of people to wrangle him back to his path, with a whopping 23 brothers and 12 sisters.“I just went for training in boxing and that’s what I wanted to do,” Adames said. “I didn’t like any other sports.”Adames chose the right sport, piling up an amateur record of 273-7 before turning pro in July 2015. But just because he chose boxing over baseball, doesn’t mean that he can’t show love to a fellow slugger, especially when they’re arguably the most famous Dominican player to ever step foot onto the diamond.Adames dedicated his win over Day to fellow countryman David Ortiz, donning Big Papi’s Boston Red Sox jersey in the ring live on the ESPN broadcast. Ortiz is recovering after being ambushed in a shooting in Santo Domingo last month.Adames and Ortiz are friends who go back some years.“I felt very good that I dedicated the fight to him,” Adames said. “I spoke to him on the phone and he’s doing better. His wife is telling me that very soon he will be the same David Ortiz that we know and love.“He’s a legend, but I’ve known him for a very long time and I consider him just like my friend,” he continued. “It’s an honor to be friends with him and I thought it was a good gesture on my part to give him some support by dedicating my fight to him.”MORE: Charlo brothers vow to use experience as fuel as judges get call wrong againOrtiz being shot and a rash of U.S. tourist deaths there — nine confirmed, according to USA TODAY — made the timing of Adames’ dedication all the more special. He felt like he was uplifting his friend and Dominican Republic at the same time.Adames even acknowledged the bad publicity his beloved nation has received lately, offering the following message to Americans teetering on whether to visit.“I would like to welcome all those fans that want to come to D.R.,” he said. “They’re going to love it. I know that — like every country in the world — we have a situation right now.“Every country has their problems, but once people get to know the real Dominican Republic and the real things that we do, the nice people and all that, they’ll never want to go back to their own country.”According to reports, U.S. flights to D.R. are already rebounding. That should put a smile on Adames’ face — similar to what he’s doing with boxing fans in each of his fights. As he surveys the junior middleweight division, “Caballo Bronco” already believes he’s the hardest puncher at 154 pounds.“So far, I haven’t seen anyone (in the division) that punches as hard as I do,” Adames said.And he wants every plume of smoke with the elite.last_img read more

Timeforarms wins Caymanas feature

first_img READY TO RUMBLE The seven-year-old horse, TIMEFORARMS, won the annual renewal of the Ren Gonzalves Memorial Cup overnight allowance feature over 2000 metres in decisive fashion at Caymanas Park yesterday. Installed a 2-1 second favourite with 3.0kg claiming apprentice Bebeto Harvey riding for trainer Fitzroy Glispie, TIMEFORARMS chased the leader KURI (45-1) from a long way out, engaged her on the inside leaving the half mile and eventually gained the ascendancy approaching the distance. At this stage, the 7-5 favourite ORIGINAL TRAIN moved into contention three-wide in mid-stretch, but TIMEFORARMS responded to a bustling ride from the apprentice to win by two and three-quarter lengths. Glispie who co-owns TIMEFORARMS with Gary G. Lee-Sin, said the bay horse by Twilight Time – Armsofanangel needed the run when finishing seventh to PUDDY POOH in a fast-run 1600 metres race on April 23 and he was confident of winning this time. “That was his first race since the rich Diamond Mile on December 5, and he was programmed to lift this trophy today. He has kept better company for most of last year and, now running from the convenient mark of 51.5kg by virtue of the apprentice claim, he was ready to rumble, especially going two turns,” said the former jockey. TIMEFORARMS has now won 11 races from 55 starts lifetime with total stakes of $6.7 million. Harvey and fellow apprentice Hakeem Pottinger shared the honours with two winners each on the 10-race programme. In addition to TIMEFORARMS, Harvey booted home 6-5 favourite PRINCE O’SHAUN for veteran trainer Noel Freeman in the fourth race over 1500 metres for $180,000 claimers. Pottinger, son of ex-jockey Mikey Pottinger, scored a shock win aboard the 99-1 outsider DIRECTOR DALEY for owner-trainer Lorenzo Robinson in the eighth race over 1300 metres for maiden three-year-old, the bay colt getting up in the nick of time to beat 1-1 favourite OK DUDE and MR LYNDHURST (6-1) in a blanket finish. Pottinger closed out his double with a narrow win aboard 6-1 shot TWO STEPS UP in the last race.last_img read more
