Rising Stars and Victoria Kings dominate EDFA weekend matches

first_img– Monedderlust FC top Arsenal FC 4 – 0 KEEN rivalry continued in the East Demerara Football Association (EDFA) and the Berbice Football Association (BFA) as the GFF-NAMILCO U-17 Intra-Association Tournament continued on Saturday and Sunday respectively.The EDFA had matches on Sunday at the Victoria Community Centre ground where the Mahaica Determinators FC edged Ann’s Grove FC by a 1 – 0 margin with a goal from Trevon Porter in the 42nd minute.In the second match, Rising Stars got the better of Victoria Kings by a 5 – 1 margin, with a brace each from Diago Britton in the 32nd and 53rd minutes and Shamar George in the 61st and 65th minutes respectively. The final goal was compliments of a kick from the penalty mark made by Rahyeem Mc Gregor in the 68th minute. The lone goal for Victoria Kings was scored by Kevin Maxwell in the 51st minute.In the BFA leg, played at the Esplanade ground in New Amsterdam in bright sunny conditions, Monedderlust FC inflicted a 4 – 0 drubbing on Arsenal FC.  Monedderlust took early command in the first half to lead by 3 – 0 through goals scored by Raul Semple in the 9th minute, Michael Jordan in the 20th minute and Emanuel Moore in the 22nd minute respectively.Upon resumption, Arsenal FC defended staunchly until the 70th minute when Raul Semple again breached Arsenal’s defence to complete his double and seal the victory.On Sunday at the same venue and in similar conditions as the previous day, a keenly-contested match ended in a two 2 – 0 victory for New Amsterdam United FC over Cougars FC in the latter stage of the match.Cougars fought valiantly to hold NA United to a goal-less first half, which remained so until the 58th minute when the ever-attacking Timothy Sommercell found the back of the Cougars net.Then two minutes later, in the 60th minute, Tyrick Ogleton took advantage of a visibly-deflated Cougars defence, which was too slow in their reaction to prevent their net from being rocked a second time by the NA United. The League continues this Saturday and Sunday at the same venue from 13:00hrs each day.last_img read more

Perry breaks out to lead Louisville running game in perfect start

first_imgIn Louisville’s season opener against Kentucky, Senorise Perry showed he was ready to become a key offensive weapon with one play.With the Cardinals up 8-7 early in the second quarter, Perry took a handoff and ran into a wall of defenders near the line of scrimmage. But rather than panicking, he bounced off the pack of Wildcats and found an opening, sprinting down the right sideline for an electrifying 47-yard score. The run marked Perry’s longest to date as a Cardinal.“It felt good,” Perry said in the postgame press conference. “We broke it a lot in practice, so I knew it was going to happen. There was a lot of chaos inside, so I bounced it outside.”Perry didn’t contend for the Louisville rushing title last season. He didn’t come close. Perry rushed for 27 yards on a measly 12 carries in 2011, ranking seventh on the team.What a difference a year makes.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTaking a larger role on the Cardinals offense due to graduations and injuries, Perry has notched 340 yards and three touchdowns through only four games in 2012.Through No. 19 Louisville’s 4-0 start, Perry leads the team in rushing yards and yards per carry with 5.5. The junior serves as a complement to fellow third-year player Jeremy Wright, with potential starter Dominique Brown currently sidelined due to a knee injury.For Cardinals head coach Charlie Strong, the ground game has been a plus so far.“We’ve been very fortunate to have two good runners right now,” Strong said in Monday’s Big East teleconference. “Both backs have been running the ball, and they’ve been running behind their pads. … They’re playing a lot, they’ve been splitting time, but they’ve been doing very well.”Making Perry’s transition to dependable back more impressive is his relative lack of experience at the position. He saw action in 2011 mostly on special teams — in coverage and as a kick returner.Perry averaged 26.2 yards as a kick returner while adding 10 tackles and a blocked kick, but remained mostly on the sidelines due to depth at the running back position.Circumstances dictated a change for this year, and Perry has run with it. With 2011 leading rusher Victor Anderson gone to graduation and Brown hurt, Perry and Wright have taken the reins in the backfield — and they’re making the most out of each carry.“What’s really great for us right now at the running back position is the yards after contact,” Strong said. “They’re getting hit, but they’re able to keep their legs moving and get yards. And our offensive line is doing a great job of blocking.”This is not a year where Louisville’s offense can fly under the radar, as much-hyped sophomore quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and the Cardinals entered the season carrying a Top-25 national ranking, the only Big East team to earn the preseason distinction.The newly-minted running duo fit the bill immediately against Kentucky, as the Cardinals cruised to a 32-14 win behind 108 yards rushing from Perry and 105 from Wright.“We expect a lot out of our offense,” Perry said after the game. “If it happens, it happens. We both ran hard today and got to 100. And when we run hard, we expect to get to 100.”Perry demonstrated great speed on his 47-yard burst against Kentucky, no surprise considering he was clocked at 4.28 seconds for the 40-yard dash in high school, according to the Cardinals website. He also won the Georgia state championship in the 100-meter run as a sophomore.Running back wasn’t even Perry’s predominant position at Chattooga High School in Summerville, Ga. Still, he racked up 1,134 offensive yards and 12 touchdowns as a runner and receiver during his senior year. But he earned All-Area honors at linebacker, where he was ranked 139th nationally by Scout.com.Now after two seasons on special teams at Louisville, Perry has another chance to prove his offensive prowess. He has avoided a letdown after the breakout performance against Kentucky, adding rushing totals of 72, 86 and 74 yards the last three weeks.Perry has also added eight catches for 96 yards to complement his rushing totals.With Bridgewater at the helm, the importance of passing in the Louisville offense is not going away any time soon. But with Big East play coming up, a balance of throwing and running is important for any team that aspires to play a BCS game in January.If Perry can continue to prove he deserves to be a major conference runner, the Cardinals won’t have much concern regarding the ground attack as conference play ensues. Still, Perry knows that continuous improvement is critical if the team hopes to reach its full potential.“Expectations are going to continue to go up,” Perry said. “We just can’t buy into complacency. We have to go out and play like the team we know we can be, and execute.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 25, 2012 at 11:14 pm Contact Kevin: kmprisei@syr.edulast_img read more

Tyler Roberson is putting all the pieces together at the right time

first_imgST. LOUIS – For almost 10 minutes in the second half, the player who had anchored Syracuse down low for the past 70 sat on the bench. Tyler Roberson wore his white long-sleeved warmup shirt in between assistants Adrian Autry and Mike Hopkins, a water bottle sitting between his legs as he watched Syracuse put away a game that he wasn’t a part of anymore.Right before he exited with 12:05 remaining in the second half, Roberson’s head collided with the floor after Tyler Lydon inadvertently mounted him when both contested a rebound. Roberson fell to his chest, turned over and winced while clutching his head.“Possibly, I mean I don’t know really,” Roberson said of why he sat for half of the second stanza, a smile spreading across his face. “…I’m good.”Even with the game well past decided in the waning minutes, Roberson re-entered with 2:45 on the clock and proceeded to finish a thunderous two-handed alley-oop. Less than a minute remained and his stat line was once again filled, the demands from Jim Boeheim for more consistency from the junior satisfied.His 12 points and nine rebounds in Sunday night’s 75-50 win against No. 15 seed Middle Tennessee State (25-10, 13-5 Conference USA) that helped propel No. 10 seed Syracuse (21-13, 9-9 Atlantic Coast) to the NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 followed a 10-point, 18-rebound domination from two days prior. All of a sudden, the player thrown in the doghouse by Boeheim less than a month ago has emphatically emerged from it.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“When he plays like that, with that energy, we’re just a different team,” assistant coach Mike Hopkins said.Roberson picked up where he left off to start Sunday’s game, hitting all three of his shots in the first half and grabbing eight rebounds. His boards came in a variety of ways – one tipping a ball to himself at the peak of a scrum, one chasing after a loose ball by himself, one mounting Middle Tennessee’s Aldonis Foote before holding onto the ball with one hand and untangling the other.His makes also came of varying flavors, a left-handed tip-in, a pump-fake-and-lay-in and a mid-range jumper. He showcased versatility on both ends while manning the paint for the majority of a 20-minute span for the third consecutive half.“He’s capable of doing this night in and night out,” Tyler Lydon said.Roberson even hit all four of his free throws, the ball gently spinning off the edge of his fingertips and through the hoop each time. He was the only player on the team to make all of his attempts from the charity stripe on a night when Syracuse shot an abysmal 59 percent from the line.Since the offseason, Roberson has emphasized expanding his perimeter game. Check. Boeheim wanted more consistency on the glass. Check. After a 1-for-8 performance from the foul line against St. John’s in Syracuse’s worst loss of the season, he had to improve. Check.Roberson’s entire arsenal is materializing at just the right time on just the right stage. He’s had all these tools at his disposal, but he’s finally putting them to use all at once.“These last two games, that’s what we need out of him,” assistant coach Adrian Autry said. “That’s what we know he can do pretty consistently.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on March 20, 2016 at 11:26 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more

Badgers show toughness in battle with Golden Eagles

first_imgNathan HartungA defining characteristic of the Wisconsin men’s basketball team this season has been its ability to adapt to the situation at hand whether it be a defensive battle or a shootout.It was no different Saturday afternoon when Wisconsin (10-0) found itself locked in a physical battle with in-state rival Marquette (5-4) at the Kohl Center.No matter how the season has gone for Marquette and Wisconsin before they meet, the I-94 rivalry game can be depended on to be a dogfight as the Badgers’ 6-6 record against the Golden Eagles under Wisconsin head coach Bo Ryan would suggest.“You can look at any rivalry and it’s always going to be a possession game,” Marquette head coach Buzz Williams said. “Stylistically how we play and how they play is always going to balance out and it always comes down to loose balls and first to the floor and 50-50 balls and offensive rebounds, put backs and-ones. It boils down to ‘how tough are you?’”When looking for a model of toughness, Wisconsin’s players need look no further than their four-year starter and guard battling back from ACL surgery Josh Gasser.Ryan agreed when asked about where his team’s toughness started in its matchup with Marquette answering simply “Josh Gasser.”“The guys saw what he went through last year and you can’t tell me there isn’t a guy in that locker room that didn’t take notice of the hours and the discipline that Josh put in,” Ryan said. “We got some other guys out there that have a lot of grit, but you have to start somewhere and that’s where it starts.”The combination of physicality and the new defensive rule implemented by the NCAA this year made for a lot of foul calls and consequently foul trouble for both teams.“We’re working at it,” Gasser said of adjusting to the new rules. “Some games are different than others. You just have play with the way it’s going. We never really used our hands on defense, coach teaches it that way … You just have to really concentrate sometimes and stick to what we do.”By the time 10 minutes had gone by in the first half, a total of 12 fouls had been called, seven of which went on Marquette, putting Wisconsin in the bonus with still 10 minutes to play in the opening half.Things started to get dicey for the Badgers when both of their big men, Nigel Hayes and Frank Kaminsky, picked up their second personal fouls within six seconds of each other. This forced Ryan to sub in junior forward Evan Anderson and fifth year senior forward Zach Bohannon, who had played a combined total of just five minutes coming into Saturday’s game.“I thought Evan and Zach did a great job of not letting it slip away,” Ryan said. “We were not in a hole when we were down those last three or four minutes. We were hanging tough.”But Anderson’s opportunity was short lived as he picked up three fouls in more than two minutes of play which put him back on the bench in favor of Bohannon.Wisconsin was able to limit their foul calls in the second half picking up just six, while penalties continued to be a problem for the Golden Eagles in the second half, getting called for 13 fouls with two players, Jake Thomas and Juan Anderson, fouling out.As time began to wind down in the second half, the intensity ratcheted up resulting in a quicker tempo and several loose balls. With hustle plays highlighted by Gasser and Traevon Jackson, Wisconsin gained the edge.“50-50 balls are what we pride ourselves on and what we always want to get,” Gasser said. “Loose balls and even rebounds we consider 50-50 balls, so we want to come up with most of those. Just those plays can really turn the tide of a game and it was good that we got a few of those and then limited theirs.  I think that was a big point to the game.”The Badgers were able to weather their foul trouble and win the battle of toughness with Marquette, giving them their 10th-straight win of the season in a game that lived up to the billing of the I-94 rivalry.“That’s why they’re 94-7 in November and December. They’re not beating themselves, you have to beat them,” Williams said. “The last two years, what was the difference? You could say it was our will. You could say today it was their will. It wasn’t tactical.”last_img read more

Betway: Nagelsmann backed to land Bayern role

first_imgShare MoneyMatrix boosts wire transfer options by integrating Klarna’s Sofort August 24, 2020 Share Submit We’re not even two months into the season and one of the biggest managerial jobs in club football has become available, after Bayern Munich dismissed manager Carlo Ancelotti this week. The Italian’s sacking inevitably opened the door to speculation from punters about who will replace him, with the early favourite being 30 year old Hoffenheim manager Julian Nagelsmann.  After guiding Liverpool to fourth in the table last time out, Jurgen Klopp has found himself ‘under a touch of pressure’ this season, and ‘he’s fourth in the betting at 14/1 to return to Germany and take the reins at the Allianz.’Betway’s Alan Alger revealed to SBC that he believes the German champions may not be far off of already securing their new manager.  Alger said: “A stuttering start to Bayern’s season was dealt another blow when losing 3-0 against PSG last night and that was enough to see the club’s hierarchy pull the trigger on Carlo Ancelotti. “The German giants will be looking for a replacement as soon as possible and the betting suggests they might not be far away from getting their man.“Assistant Willy Sagnol has been thrown into the mix at 3/1 and Thomas Tuchel, without a job since parting with Dortmund, is in the running at 4/1. While those two seem to fit the bill nicely, Julian Nagelsmann has been the one for money from the off and now looks the most obvious man for the job at 1/3.
