first_imgBrentford will face a tough test at Elland Road on Saturday. Here are five potential battles we think could be crucial to their chances against Uwe Rosler’s Leeds.Maxime Colin v Stuart DallasEx-Brentford star Dallas faces his former club for the first time since leaving. He will come up against an impressive defender in Colin, who has settled in well following his recent move from Anderlecht.Toumani Diagouraga v Tom AdeyemiAdeyemi is another familiar face, having been on loan at Brentford. His style would make for an interesting battle with Diagouraga – if the Bees midfielder retains his starting place after being substituted in the first half against Reading last time out.AdChoices广告Jake Bidwell v Sam Byram or Jordan BotakaThe versatile Byram, who can also play as a full-back, has struggled as a winger this season and recent signing Botaka could take his place. Coincidentally, Leeds’ new arrival played under Brentford boss Marinus Dijkhuizen at Excelsior last season.James Tarkowski v Chris WoodNew Zealander Wood will lead the line for Leeds, having scored in each of the last three league games – including the winner at Derby last time out. It should be an interesting battle between the 6ft 3in target man and Tarkowski.Marinus Dijkhuizen v Uwe RoslerThis will be ex-Brentford manager Rosler’s second game against his former club. The first, while in charge of Wigan last October, ended goalless. The German picked up nine points from his first four league games in charge at Griffin Park. Dijkhuizen has just four.

first_imgThe Baltimore Orioles got bad news regarding Manny Machado’s suspension as it was upheld.  Machado appealed the suspension hoping it would get reduced.  The five-game suspension was not reduced and Machado will begin serving it tonight.  The Orioles will likely have Ryan Flaherty playing third base during this time.  Jonathan Schoop can play third but he showed that he is very inexperienced there.  Machado has been hitting for power lately but his average is still only .239.  Machado’s defense has still shined this season despite the offensive struggles. The Orioles are short in the bullpen after getting blown out last night so a roster move could happen.  The Orioles hands may be tied and the may not be able to bring up an extra infielder. Please follow and like us:last_img read more

(Photo by Donita Clausen)by James Jordan, Sumner Newscow — The Wellington girls survived the opening game of the sub-state tournament Thursday, beating Coffeyville 50-41. Wellington will play host Ark City Saturday to try to win a third consecutive trip to the state tournament.Wellington appeared poised to pull away from the Coffeyville team that came into the game with a 1-19 record, but the Golden Tornados would not go quietly.Wellington coach Eric Adams said his team had the “jitters” with playing in sub-state.“We have players who have been to the state tournament for two straight years.  The tournaments are different. You have to remember these are still kids,” he said.Wellington does have a couple of players with playoff experience, but this year’s edition also has a good group of newcomers. Several times Wellington would get a turnover by playing good defense, only to make a bad pass or take a bad shot and turn the ball back over. Several times Wellington managed to get a 10-point lead, only to see Coffeyville storm back to make the game close again.Shayland French gets double teamed, early in the game. (Clausen photo)Wellington had shooting troubles all night. The Crusaders were 14-of-34 in 2-point field goal shooting, and was 3-of-16 beyond the 3-point line. Even their free throw shooting was not up to par, going 13-of-24. It was that kind of night.As for turnovers, Wellington had a lot of them with 21. That’s the largest total since committing 26 against Cheney in the Haven Tournament.“You have to credit Coffeyville too. They played hard and fast — faster than we were,” Adams said. “We are happy to survive. Win and advance. It’s March Madness for us.”Avery Rusk took over in the fourth quarter for Wellington and finished with 23 points. She hit six of nine foul shots in the last two minutes of the game to help seal the win. Eight of those points came in the fourth quarter.Adams credited Rusk, as well as Shayand French with coming up with big plays.“We need our seniors to step up like that. I thought Avery Rusk took the team on her shoulders in the fourth quarter,” he said.The fourth quarter started with Wellington up by six, and French scored two quick layups and put the lead back to 10 at 42-32. Coffeyville responded with one more run, reeling off seven unanswered points to get within three, at 42-39, with five minutes left.Rusk got a field goal, and moments later hit two foul shots to put the lead back at seven. Coffeyville got to within five with two foul shots, but did not score again.  Jordan Rooks led the fourth-quarter surge for Coffeyville, converging a three-pointer and hitting three of four foul shots.Avery Rusk’s leadership helped Crusaders stave off a Coffeyville upset bid. (Clausen photo)Wellington milked a minute off the clock and held on from there to take the win.Very early in the game it looked like Wellington was going to have an easy time. French and Avery Rusk scored four points each and Wellington stormed out to a 10-1 lead a few minutes into the game.  Jacelyn Buck hit a three, and Riley Rusk scored and Wellington led 15-5 at the end of the first quarter. That lead swelled to 19-5. Then Wellington went cold. The Crusaders did not score for almost six minutes of game time, and Coffeyville scored 11 straight points to cut the deficit to three with a couple minutes left in the half.French and Riley Rusk scored late and Wellington managed a 25-17 lead at the half.Wellington got the lead back to 10 early in the third, but Coffeyville managed another run, scoring eight straight points to cut the lead to four.French finished with 13 for Wellington and Riley Rusk also had 13. Buck had 3.Nine players scored for Coffeyville. Rooks had 8 points.Follow us on Facebook.Follow us on Twitter. Zlast_img read more

first_img“We’ve had some up and down performances, especially at home,” Alan Murphy told“We probably started off with a shock performance, everyone externally would’ve expected Shelbourne to wipe the floor with us in terms of their budget and their off-season additions. It’s been a bit up and down since then, but I think we’ve been unlucky at times not to get results. It’s important this weekend that we try and turn that performance into a result. We had some good performers in Waterford on Monday, that’s what the squad needs. We’re in search of a home win and we need that competition and freshness.This First Division campaign is going to be extremely tight. There are going to be upsets every week. We’d like to add ourselves into the mix and we’ve been in and competing in every game, but some haven’t gone our way. We’re growing from the bottom up as a club, we’re trying to give players experience and also coupling on that we’re trying to get results also.” Alan Murphy has fresh injury headaches to contend with ahead of the Limerick game. Conor Layng (cruciate), Iarfhlaith Davoren (calf), Kevin Horgan (abdominal), Ronan Asgari (calf) and Ivan Gamarra (ankle) are all sidelined.

first_imgWiseman shows he’s wise young man by dumping college Lava gushes out of Taal Volcano as villagers flee No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next An announcer in a dress suit bellows introductions and provides play-by-play during the events. Fans yell, whistle and cheer. The arena lights come on for the races. Otherwise, it’s swirling spotlights in the dark with only the starting blocks illuminated. Unlike other meets, there are no yawn-inducing preliminary heats. Every race is a final.“This have been some of the most fun meets of my career and I’ve been to the big ones,” American Olivia Smoliga of Cali Condors said. “We’re talking trash to all the other teams and to come home with a team championship, that’s unlike anything we’ve ever been able to experience before in swimming. That’s really cool.”Most of the world’s top swimmers who are professionals have sponsors that pay their training and travel expenses while providing an income. Many also earn bonuses tied to winning Olympic medals. But the league represents a chance for lower-tier swimmers to bolster their bottom line.“It’s giving a lot of post-grads an actual opportunity to make money and support themselves rather than kind of living off their parents, which is what a lot of people, unfortunately, have to do,” said King, in her first season as a pro.The most valuable swimmer in Las Vegas earns $10,000. The season MVP, based on points earned during the six-match season, earns $50,000.ADVERTISEMENT Leonardo DiCaprio, Taika Waititi, other stars react to Oscar nominations After Friday’s first day, Turkey-based Energy Standard led with 219 points. Cali Condors was second at 205.5, followed by London Roar with 202 and LA Current at 185.5. Swede Sarah Sjostrom of Energy Standard leads the season MVP standings with 188.5 points. U.S. star Caeleb Dressel of Cali Condors is second at 171.Two short-course world records were set. Energy Standard’s Daiya Seto of Japan won the men’s 400 individual medley in 3 minutes, 54.81 seconds in his ISL debut. That bettered the old mark of 3:55.50 set by American Ryan Lochte at the 2010 short-course meters world championships in Dubai.Seto experienced jet lag and a headache since arriving two days ago.“Even when you’re struggling or feel like you’re not doing well, you can hear the encouragement by the other team members and that helps you push forward,” Seto said through a translator.The day’s other world record belonged to Dressel. He won the 50 freestyle in 20.24 seconds, erasing the record of 20.26 set by Frenchman Florent Manaudou of Energy Standard. Manaudou finished second in 20.69.The league comprised of U.S. and Europe-based teams began in October, with stops in Indianapolis, Naples, Italy, Lewisville, Texas, Budapest, College Park, Maryland, and London. The ISL says attendance ranged from 1,000 for the U.S. matches to nearly 5,000 at the European stops.“The crowds at these meets have been really cool,” King said. “That’s a big component for me to swim fast.”The first of two days in Las Vegas saw plenty of empty seats and a mix of adults and kids. Except for a couple of photos, there was little advertising in the hotel or on the Strip for the league. Nearby in the Mandalay Bay complex, the NBA’s G League was holding its much better promoted winter showcase.However, Campbell calls the ISL a “disruptive force” in an inaugural season where the focus has been on spreading the word about a new way to watch the sport.“The most noticeable thing about this league is how much chatter it’s creating. I’ve had people who don’t follow swimming come up and talk to me,” she said. “I hope that it can continue to build on this year. It’s already made a name for itself, which in itself says that there is an appetite for it and that there is an audience for it.” MOST READ LATEST STORIES Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:06SEA Games 2019: Comaling gives PH another gold in modern pentathlon00:50Trending Articles01:05Poor visibility, nakaapekto sa maraming lugar sa Batangas03:028,000 pulis sa Region 4-A, tuloy ang trabaho03:57Phivolcs, nahihirapan sa komunikasyon sa Taal01:04Sold-out: Stores run out of face masks after Taal spews ash01:45Iran police shoot at those protesting plane shootdown01:54MMDA deploys rescue team to Batangas following Taal eruption Daiya Seto celebrates after his swim in the the men’s 400-meter individual medley during an International Swimming League event Friday, Dec. 20, 2019, in Las Vegas.
