Ward one step closer to US Open

first_img The British number two – the only British player to win a match in qualifying at Flushing Meadows this year – is at a career-high ranking of 131 after an excellent run and has kept that going in New York. After beating little-known Bosnian Aldin Setkic in round one, Ward was given a tougher test by Millot but came through 6-4 6-4. Press Association Andy Murray played Millot in the second round of the Australian Open in January and trailed 5-1 in the third set before reeling off 23 straight points. There were no such dramatic twists and turns in this match but it was Ward who managed to claim the crucial advantage in each set. Ward, who will play either Marton Fucsovics of Hungary or Moldova’s Radu Albot on Friday, also reached the third round of qualifying last year only to lose from a break up in the deciding set against Somdev Devvarman. He qualified for the first time at the French Open in May and victory on Friday would ensure he has played in the main draw at each grand slam. Also through to the final round is Ireland’s James McGee, who came from a set down to defeat India’s Yuki Bhambri. center_img James Ward defeated France’s Vincent Millot to reach the final round of qualifying at the US Open.last_img read more

USC defense struggling despite early optimism

first_imgIt was impossible not to be optimistic about USC’s defense coming into this season.After all, the belief was that improvement was guaranteed — not because of a boost in experience, talent or coaching, but rather, because the 2011 defense couldn’t possibly be worse than the 2010 defense.Porous · USC assistant coach Monte Kiffin’s defensive schemes have been subjected to increasing levels of criticism in recent weeks, as the Trojans are surrendering nearly 400 yards of total offense per game. – Carlo Acenas | Daily TrojanLast season, USC gave up an average of 400 yards per game, good enough to be tied with Duke for 83rd in the nation. Teams were scoring 26.4 points per game against the Trojans, and doing so mostly through the air — USC’s pass defense was ranked 100th in all of college football.So with solid performances in weeks one and two, when the defense held the lead for the Trojans as the offense sputtered and died in the waning minutes of each game, it seemed as if the constant worry that pervaded last season was finally something to forget.Flash-forward to week five, and it’s become clear that if anything is ready to be forgotten, it is the notion that stifling defense has returned to USC.Arizona’s aerial thrashing of the Trojans last Saturday highlighted many of the consistent problems USC couldn’t seem to overcome a season ago.The numbers are right there in the stat book — 554 yards of total offense for the Wildcats, led by a 425 yard, four-touchdown performance by quarterback Nick Foles. The senior captain spread the ball around to 12 different receivers, and completed 77 percent of his passes en route to putting up 41 points.These are numbers that sound all too familiar for a Trojan unit that is supposed to have grown up.Fortunately for USC, it was able to stay one step ahead of Arizona’s offense and eek out a 48-41 win. Coming against one of the worst defenses in the Football Bowl Subdivision, USC picked a good time to host a shootout.But the same can’t be said for the 44-23 beatdown USC received from Arizona State in the desert two weeks ago.USC gave up 141 yards rushing and three touchdowns to junior tailback Cameron Marshall, including a 70-yard score on ASU’s opening drive. Brock Osweiler, the mobile-yet-massive Sun Devils quarterback, also put up strong numbers, throwing for 223 yards and two touchdowns.It didn’t help that the Trojans offense gave the ball away four times. But when USC was in desperate need of a stop, it simply couldn’t come up with one.A simplified version of the defense the Trojans ran last season looked like a quick fix for this year’s team. But the pay-off hasn’t come yet, and USC has simply not been able to mobilize its defense. The Wildcats held possession for seven-and-a-half minutes longer than USC on Saturday, and the Sun Devils had an 11-minute advantage two weeks ago.If you are asking why the defense has taken such a big step back from the beginning of the season to now, then you are asking the wrong question — the issue isn’t with USC’s defense necessarily.Up until a run-in with the Arizona schools these last two weeks, the USC defense went largely untested. Once it had to face a well-coached spread offense (in both Arizona State and Arizona), holes opened up that the two teams had no problem exploiting.It’s hard to contest the prowess of USC assistant coach Monte Kiffin, who is widely regarded as one of the great defensive minds in football today.But time and time again it has become clear the current system is not working the way it is supposed to with the players that USC has on the field.And now, with the meat of Pac-12 play on the horizon, the Trojans will surely be challenged as much, if not more on defense. It goes without saying that Stanford and Oregon have high-powered offenses, but even teams like Washington and California have proven they can light up the scoreboard.Playing through the last two weeks will surely provide a lesson for the Trojans defense, as well as the coaching staff. But the same could be said about all of last season, which hasn’t been the stepping stone in the way the Trojans had hoped.Until USC proves it can address its flaws and adapt to the offenses it is sure to encounter in 2011, there is a good chance Saturday’s shootout won’t be the last of its kind this year. “One-Two Punch” runs Tuesdays.

Black & Gold: With Vela, LAFC has chance to dominate

first_imgLast week, LAFC tied the crosstown rival Los Angeles Galaxy 3-3. While continuing the team’s winless streak this season against the Galaxy is disappointing enough, Vela also suffered a minor hamstring injury and left the game early in the second half. Vela’s importance is further underscored by the fact that his team lost the following game against MNUFC 2-0 in his absence. MNUFC’s 20-year-old striker Mason Toye was the difference in ending LAFC’s 19-game winning streak at Banc of California Stadium. Toye scored 2 goals within four minutes in the first half, stunning a dominant LAFC team and its passionate crowd. Toye’s goals were pretty — the first a curved ball from a difficult angle inside the box and the second a powerful left-footed strike from 25 yards out. Like all team sports, the quality of a soccer team does not rely on one player. While Vela’s leadership and spectacular abilities on the field are definitely worth the recognition they receive, LAFC’s dominant season has not only been due to the striker’s record breaking season. Without Tyler Miller in goal, the young and talented Eduard Atuesta in the midfield, Diego Rossi’s attacking prowess, and other talented players on the LAFC roster, the club would not be in the position it is now as the likely winner of the Supporters’ Shield and favorites for the MLS Cup. Despite having other talented players on the team, such as forwards Adama Diomande and Diego Rossi and midfielders Lee Nguyen and Eduard Atuesta, not having Vela on the pitch must have impacted the mindset of other LAFC players as well. Without a player that has consistently shown his value to the team and frequently scored game-winning goals, it seemed as though the pressure negatively impacted the team’s poise. LAFC’s nerves were reflected in a sloppy attack, as evidenced by the lack of shots on goal. With Toye’s impressive performance, the Los Angeles Football Club definitely missed having Vela, its captain and a Golden Boot favorite this season, on the pitch. With the final games of the regular season still left unplayed, Vela has already broken the record for most combined goals and assists in one MLS season. Vela is also in the running to break the single-season goal-scoring record, needing only 5 more scores to surpass Josef Martinez’s 31 goals for Atlanta United FC last season. In just two seasons in the MLS, Vela has already shattered the record for most MLS goals by a Mexican player. As he consistently proves himself to be a frontrunner for this season’s MVP Award, Vela’s value to LAFC as the team looks for its first championship is undeniable. Sunday’s game would have benefited from Vela’s otherworldly offensive abilities. Vela creates space for his runs, misdirects defenders and generates goal-scoring opportunities for himself and his teammates out of thin air. The team couldn’t replace his sharpness and expertise as an attacker. Going against the team with the best record in the league is daunting for anybody. For Minnesota United, seeing Vela’s name in the injury report calmed a lot of nerves and heightened its confidence to be able to win against a dominant LAFC team. Knowing that it did not have to put multiple men on a single attacker all game, MNUFC stepped onto the pitch with more composure. center_img Nonetheless, with its talented players, winning record and passionate supporters, the dreams of LAFC bringing a championship to Los Angeles are not so far-fetched. Less than a month after becoming the first MLS team to clinch a playoff berth, the Los Angeles Football Club suffered its first home loss this season when it was shut out 2-0 by Minnesota United this past Sunday. Although many fans were distraught by the defeat, I contend that LAFC will move forward from the loss to end the regular season strong, especially when injured forward Carlos Vela returns to lead the team. Vela should be returning to the pitch within the next few weeks. However, this loss makes it apparent that LAFC — while impressive all season long — is not invincible with or without Vela. As the regular season comes to a close and the playoffs begin, the road toward an MLS Cup will not be a smooth one. Maintaining 77% of possession and 87% pass accuracy compared to MNUFC’s 57.2%, LAFC had control of last week’s game. However, MNUFC’s ability to capitalize on its opportunities to score rewarded them with the win. Compared to MNUFC’s four shots on target out of five total shots, LAFC’s eight shots on target out of 23 total shots shows a lack of precision in its attack.  Johannah Suegay is a sophomore writing about LAFC.

A Tipp win against Cavan vital for promotion

first_imgTomorrow’s game for Tipp’s senior footballers is vital in terms of promotion chances.If Cavan beat Tipperary, and if Roscommon beat Cork in the same division, Cavan and Roscommon will go into the league decider and up to the top tier.While if Down beat Meath then the Royals would join the already relegated Louth in heading back to Division 3. Those results would mean there would be no need for last weekend’s game between Tiipperary and Down to be played.However, if results go differently, April will be further eaten into.The Division 2 football final, earmarked for Sunday, April 1, will be pushed back a week if Tipperary win or draw away to Cavan this weekend.last_img

Brandon O’Neal, Conway Springs, is bound over for trial; gets probation revoked

first_imgby Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — Brandon O’Neal, 20, of Conway Springs — charged with four felonies stemming from a June 12 fire he allegedly started at his home in hopes of framing a neighbor — had his probation revoked and lost a preliminary hearing at Sumner County District Court today.Judge Scott McQuin has decreed there is enough evidence to bound O’Neal over for a jury trial which is set for Nov. 12-13. Sumner County Attorney Kerwin Spencer said he anticipates the trial to be continued to a later date.Meanwhile, O’Neal was immediately sent to prison for a probation violation on a previous conviction of burglary felony. (see story here) Spencer said O’Neal has already spent 10 days in prison, but will now spend 12 months there. If O’Neal demonstrates good behavior in prison he could be out in 10 months, Spencer said.O’Neal was convicted for a Sept. 12, 2012 theft which he entered a neighbor’s dwelling on North Conway Springs Road and stole guns, jewelry, a video camera, cash, a saxophone and an iPod. He spent 10 days in state prison before being released on probation.During his probationary time, O’Neal then was accused of creating a scheme in which he set two fires inside his home on 822 Chicaskia Road, southeast of Conway Springs when his father, Donald O’Neal was sleeping at the residence upstairs on June 12. He is also accused of setting three fires to two outbuildings at the residence.O’Neal is then accused of breaking into the neighbor son’s 1995 Chevrolet pickup and stealing a hammer from the cab, and also entering a shed and stealing a gas can and two cans of paint before the incident. He then allegedly set these items up in an attempt to make it look like the neighbor was the person starting the fires.O’Neal will now go to trial for four felony counts of aggravated arson, arson, non-residential burglary and burglary of a motored vehicle. Spencer said if convicted of aggravated arson O’Neal could possibly serve 72 months in prison.O’Neal pleaded not guilty to these four charges at the preliminary hearing Tuesday.Spencer said this was an unusual case in which he asked the judge to revoke probation before being tried for a new crime. Normally, Spencer said, if someone is accused of burglary while serving probation for a burglary conviction, he would wait until the alleged thief is convicted of the new crime and then add the probation revocation on top of that.But in this case, Spencer determined O’Neal was a risk to society and needed to be locked up immediately.“When you are allegedly setting houses on fire, I can’t imagine anything more dangerous than that,” Spencer said.At the hearing Tuesday, O’Neal’s defense attorney Kurt Kerns of Wichita — with the defendant by his side in the courtroom — asked the judge to not waive his probation because it would interfere with his therapy he is scheduled to complete on Dec. 15. Kerns said O’Neal has been diagnosed with depression, anxiety, and a personality disorder.Kerns said O’Neal is currently taking two kinds of medicine to help him cope with these symptoms. O’Neal also has volunteered on his own to seek therapy and wear an electronic ankle bracelet used to track an offender’s whereabouts, Kerns said.Kerns said O’Neal had made a very bad decision on June 12 because of several factors including a divorce and the stress from worrying that he could not pay for restitution to the neighbor he had burglarized. Kerns said O’Neal was also having problems with substance abuse which he is getting treatment for.“He is not a danger to society,” Kerns said.But McQuin did not see it that way.McQuin said there is ample evidence that O’Neal had set five separate fires while his dad was asleep and stole items from his neighbor in an attempt to frame him.McQuin said mental depression often causes people to not be able to get out of bed. Yet O’Neal had enough energy to allegedly plot out and execute a scheme. McQuin also did not believe anxiety or a personality disorder was the reason for the alleged crime. He also questioned whether O’Neal had a drug problem, when there has been no evidence that he had one before.“This was a serious violation of your probation,” McQuin told O’Neal. “Therefore I’m placing you under the custody of the state for the next 12 months.” Close Forgot password?

Report Reply 0 replies · active 356 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down Trenton C. Edwards · 356 weeks ago Agreed! I knew this individual in middle school when I attended Conway Springs, we were in the same class, at first I was shocked when I heard of the situation until I started reminiscing about his personality, he was quiet yet very slick and sneaky and always tried to pawn the trouble off on others, I took the fall a couple times for his wrongdoings just because I knew better than to be a “SNITCH” over petty accusations. Many from Conway remember me, Trenton Edwards, I admit I have done wrong to many but fortunately, unlike O’Neal, I chose a better path for myself and was tired of always being in trouble and frowned upon in that small town. Life is all about choices and he had his chance to change and chose to continue down a path of destruction, hopefully this time away will invoke a positive change. I pray he comes to realize that there is consequences to all of his actions and that they affect everyone around him.
