Iheanacho, Ndidi to miss League Cup final

first_imgRelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Watford tempts Troost-Ekong with five-year deal Ighalo: My best moment as ‘Red Devil’ Nigeria’s duo of Kelechi Iheanacho and Wilfried Ndidi failed to inspire Leicester City to League Cup final following their 1-2 loss to Aston Villa on Tuesday night. Villa’s Trezeguet scored a dramatic late winner to reach the final with a 3-2 aggregate win. Five-times winners Villa will face either Manchester United or Manchester City, who play in the other semifinal on Wednesday. Leicester could only manage a 1-1 draw in the first leg at the King Power Stadium and came they came out firing with James Maddison coming close twice in the opening minutes in search of a spot in the Wembley final. Despite the early chances for Leicester, it was Aston Villa that took the early lead when Jack Grealish set up Matt Targett to smash a shot past Kasper Schmeichel to make it 1-0. Leicester scored a deserved equaliser after the break with Iheanacho smashing home at the back post from a nice Harvey Barnes assist to set up a tense closing 15 minutes to the cup tie. With the match seemingly headed to a draw in regulation time, Trezeguet popped up at the back post and volleyed home to send the Villa fans into wild celebrations as their team returned to the League Cup final for the first since losing to Manchester United in the 2010 final. Villa have struggled in the Premier League and sit 16th in the table, two points above the relegation zone, but fought well against their third-placed opponents in both legs of the semi-final. Smith handed new signing Mbwana Samatta, a Tanzania international forward, his debut but Brendan Rodgers left Leicester’s talismanic striker Jamie Vardy on the bench after injury. Vardy was brought on after 56 minutes but found it hard to get involved and Villa might have doubled their lead but Samatta could not reach Grealish’s inviting cross. Iheanacho levelled when he tucked home Harvey Barnes’ low cross after 72 minutes, and the game seemed destined for penalties. Yet in the third minute of four added on Ahmed Elmohamady launched a dangerous ball into the area and Trezeguet coolly finished to send Villa to Wembley.Tags: Aston VillaKelechi IheanachoLeague CupLeicester CityManchester CityManchester UnitedWilfried Ndidilast_img read more

Syracuse ice hockey cruises past No. 7 Robert Morris, 5-1, to split weekend series

first_imgWith 9:11 left in the second period, a deflected puck skidded to the stick of an RMU player in the neutral zone. The lady Colonial attempted to skate back out, but SU forwards Heather Schwarz and Alysha Burriss raced toward the puck. Burriss knocked the puck away toward the Syracuse blue line.A racing Schwarz corralled the puck and sped toward the net. When she skated past the left circle, Schwarz fired a shot to the right pad of RMU goaltender Jessica Dodds. The puck slipped away from the net-minder, near where Burriss was waiting for the rebound. The score gave Syracuse a 2-1 lead, on which SU expanded in the rout.A day after failing to tie the best team in the conference for first place, Syracuse (10-11-5, 9-3-2 College Hockey America) gained a much-needed two points Saturday night in its 5-1 victory over No. 7 Robert Morris (17-3-6, 10-2-2) at Tennity Ice Pavilion. In handing the Colonials their worst defeat of the season, the Orange ensured that its hopes for a first-round bye in the upcoming CHA tournament were still alive.“We treated it like a playoff game,” Allie Munroe said. “This was two points we really wanted and we really needed.”In Friday night’s defeat, the Orange looked a step slow in the first period as it struggled to create momentum. Less than 24 hours later, the opposite occurred. Within the first eight minutes of the game, Syracuse scored one goal, generated seven shots and drew a penalty. With the threat of falling six points behind the first-place team in the conference, SU consistently out-hustled the Colonial defenders.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the crucial opening minutes of the game, SU forward Savannah Rennie fired off a shot that ricocheted off an RMU defender and fell to Emily Costales’ stick. Costales, who positioned herself to the goaltender’s right, paused before sending the puck across the body of Dodds and into the net.Syracuse produced many of the same chances it did in last night’s game, but SU executive efficiently on Saturday. SU blocked 17 shots to Robert Morris’ one.Seconds after Burriss’ goal, SU defender Megan Quinn found herself on the wrong end of a 2-on-1 breakaway. As the RMU skater attempted a pass across the ice to her teammate, Quinn laid out, thrusting her stick forward and knocking the puck off its course.Later in the period,  SU responded with a big play. As RMU established an offensive zone for the first time in the game, Munroe jumped in front of a slap shot and absorbed the force of the shot. Seconds later the puck was cleared and the Orange bench applauded Munroe’s effort.“The energy on the bench today was something you can’t describe,” Syracuse point leader Stephanie Grossi said.During the Friday night loss, the Colonials used a strong fore-check to disrupt SU’s transition opportunities. In response, Syracuse dropped its center lower in the zone defensively, providing an outlet for a pass whenever the puck was stuck against the boards.After his team’s disappointing start to Friday’s game, SU head coach Paul Flanagan asked his team to put together a strong 60-minute performance. On Saturday afternoon, the Orange only needed 40, scoring three goals in the second period.Grossi contributed her 10th and 11th goals of the season in the victory. Costales added three points, scoring in the first and assisting Grossi on both of her goals.Throughout the third period, RMU searched for a goal to cut into the deficit. But the Syracuse defense held strong.Many of the Orange players, Flanagan included, declined to say this game was a “must-win,” but the implications were there. With only six regular season the games left, the Orange has time to claim a first-round bye in the CHA tournament.“Yesterday we weren’t really playing our game,” Miller said. “But today you could just feel it.” Comments Published on January 28, 2017 at 8:07 pm Contact Nick: [email protected] | @nick_a_alvarez Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

World Handicap System: new details announced

first_img The R&A and the USGA have today announced details of the new World Handicap System (WHS).It is designed to welcome more players, to make golf easier to understand and to provide all golfers with a handicap which is portable all around the globe.The system is expected to be launched in January 2020 and its features will include:• A minimal number of scores needed to obtain a new handicap• Allowing both competitive and recreational rounds to count for handicap purposes so a golfer’s handicap is more reflective of current ability• A consistent handicap that is portable from course to course and country to country through worldwide use of the USGA Course and Slope Rating System, already successfully used in more than 80 countries• An average-based calculation of a handicap, taken from the best eight out of the last 20 scores. The system will also be able to ‘remember’ good scores, even when they have dropped out of the last 20.• A calculation that considers the impact that abnormal course and weather conditions on a player’s performance each day• Daily handicap revisions, taking account of the course and weather conditions calculation• A limit of net double bogey on the maximum hole score (for handicapping purposes only)• A maximum handicap limit of 54.0, regardless of gender, to encourage more golfers to measure and track their performance and so increase their enjoyment of the game.England Golf is working closely with The R&A and the USGA to help introduce the new system and is running workshops for golf clubs this spring to outline the proposals and their impact. More detailed workshops will be run in the autumn.Chief Executive Nick Pink commented: “We’re joining golfers around the world to welcome this new system. It shows that golf is modernising and becoming easier to understand and I’m sure it will encourage more people to play, get a handicap and enjoy our sport, which is very good news for the future of the game.”The WHS looks set for a great reception. Research was conducted in 15 countries, involving 52,000 people. Of these, 76% were in support of WHS, 22% percent were willing to consider its benefits and only 2% were opposed. This was followed by focus groups when over than 300 golf administrators and golfers offered extensive feedback on features of the proposed new system.This feedback has helped shape the WHS, which has been developed by the USGA and The R&A with support from each handicapping authority as well as the Japan Golf Association and Golf Canada.Mike Davis, CEO of the USGA, commented: “For some time, we’ve heard golfers say ‘I’m not good enough to have a handicap,” or ‘I don’t play enough to have a handicap.’ We want to make the right decisions now to encourage a more welcoming and social game. We’re excited to be taking another important step – along with modernizing golf’s rules – to provide a pathway into the sport, making golf easier to understand and more approachable and enjoyable for everyone to play.”Martin Slumbers, Chief Executive of The R&A, said: “We are working with our partners and national associations to make golf more modern, more accessible and more enjoyable as a sport and the new World Handicap System represents a huge opportunity in this regard.“We want to make it more attractive to golfers to obtain a handicap and strip away some of the complexity and variation which can be off-putting for newcomers. Having a handicap, which is easier to understand and is truly portable around the world, can make golf much more enjoyable and is one of the unique selling points of our sport.”The full details of the WHS will be released in late 2018.To provide feedback on the new World Handicap System or for more information, visit www.usga.org or www.RandA.org. 19 Feb 2018 World Handicap System: new details announced Tags: WHS, World Handicap Systemlast_img read more

Heartbreaker: Gilyard rallies Cincinnati past Pitt 45-44

first_imgSHADES OF DORSETT— Freshman running back sensation Dion Lewis had 47 carries, a new Pitt record, for 194 yards and three touchdowns in a Tony Dorsett-like performance to lead the Panthers. PITTSBURGH (AP)—No. 5 Cincinnati trailed Pittsburgh by 21 points late in the first half, a perfect season and BCS bowl berth in peril. Teammate after teammate came up to wide receiver Mardy Gilyard asking for a big play.Gilyard listened to every plea, silently whispered a short prayer, then relied on his speed and can’t-tackle-me attitude to give the Bearcats numerous momentum-swinging plays in a game they led only once—at the end. Tony Pike’s 29-yard touchdown pass to Armon Binns with 33 seconds left finished the comeback from a three-touchdown deficit, and the Bearcats stunned No. 14 Pittsburgh 45-44 on Saturday to secure their second straight Big East title.The first de facto Big East championship game since the conference began playing football in 1991 was a high-scoring classic. Freshman Dion Lewis’ three touchdowns and 194 yards rushing on 47 carries in a Tony Dorsett-like performance carried Pitt (9-3, 5-2) to leads of 31-10, 38-24 and 44-38, only to have the Gilyard-led Bearcats (12-0, 7-0) rally each time.Gilyard gave the Bearcats a much-needed jolt with a 99-yard kickoff return only 70 seconds before halftime—immediately after coach Brian Kelly and a half-dozen teammates pleaded for a game-changing play—and he made it 31-24 in the third quarter with a 68-yard scoring catch.Gilyard’s 49-yard kickoff return also led to Pike’s 8-yard scoring pass to D.J. Woods that cut Pitt’s lead to 38-30 early in the fourth quarter. Gilyard has four kickoff return touchdowns in his career and three kick return scores this season. SENSATIONAL PERFORMANCE— Mardy Gilyard catches a critical two-point conversion for Cincinnati. “Mardy Gilyard was absolutely brilliant,” Kelly said. “The kickoff return was the spark that got us back into the game.”Gilyard didn’t do it all by himself. Pike shook off a rough opening three quarters to complete his final 11 passes for 128 yards and two touchdowns. Binns made five catches for 104 yards in an offense that came in averaging 473 yards and 39 points.“We were going through the motions,” Pike said of falling behind 31-10 in the second quarter. “We were trying to make too many big plays. But then Mardy got us going, just like he has so many times.”Cincinnati heads off to the BCS for the second season in a row with its first 12-0 record to face Florida in the Sugar Bowl, while Pitt’s second consecutive loss dooms the Panthers to the Meineke Car Care Bowl only two weeks after they were 9-1 and ranked in the top 10.Pitt coach Dave Wannstedt called it “a tough, heartbreaking loss, to say the least,” and his players’ faces said it was even worse than that.Linebacker Adam Gunn became upset with questions about how Cincinnati drove 61 yards in only 63 seconds for the decisive score. Lewis didn’t talk to reporters despite playing one of the best games by any running back in school history.“I told my teammates that we had a terrific ride,” defensive end Mick Williams said. “It’s a tough way to end, and I really don’t know how to describe it.”Lewis, breaking Craig “Ironhead” Heyward’s 1987 school record of 42 carries in a game, put Pitt ahead 44-38 with 1:36 remaining on a 5-yard run. But holder Andrew Janocko mishandled a perfect snap from center and Pitt never got off the extra point, a costly mistake.Lewis, whose 1,640 yards are 46 shy of Dorsett’s freshman season total of 1,686 yards in 1973, had 116 yards on 29 carries and three catches by halftime.Cincinnati also failed to convert an extra point but made up for it with a 2-pointer. Pike was held to 8 completions in his first 22 attempts, but went 4 of 4 on the final drive and finished 22 of 44 for 302 yards despite throwing three interceptions.“He had to fight through it,” said Kelly, who briefly warmed up backup Zach Collaros early in the third quarter.Before that, Lewis sliced through Cincinnati’s defense with speed and power, running three times for 17 yards ahead of his 15-yard scoring run that restored Pitt’s two-touchdown lead at 38-24 with 12:26 remaining. Woods’ score got the Bearcats close again, and they tied it at 38 with 5:46 left on Isaiah Pead’s 1-yard run and Pike’s conversion pass to Gilyard.Gilyard made five catches for 118 yards and also had 256 yards on seven kickoff returns.“I don’t know what their scheme was, but they kept kicking it to me,” said Gilyard, who has 2,442 all-purpose yards this season, an average of 203 per game.Pitt, which lost 19-16 to rival West Virginia on Nov. 27 to fall out of the top 10, had everything going in the first half—the running game, the occasional deep pass and, for a change, special teams. Nate Nix’s blocked punt led to Bill Stull’s 3-yard TD run that made it 31-10 with 1:26 left before halftime.It was Pitt’s biggest regular-season game since the then-No. 1 Panthers, led by Dan Marino, took a 14-0 lead before losing to Penn State 48-14 in 1981, costing them a chance to play for the national title. Pitt beat Georgia Tech in the Sugar Bowl that season.last_img read more

Prime Lending Offers Simple Steps to Protect Your House While You’re…

first_imgFacebook1Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Prime LendingYour bags are packed and you’re ready for the vacation you’ve been planning for weeks, months or even years. Summer time is a busy time for travel. According to Forbes Magazine, 68% of Americans plan to head out on a summer vacations this year. Peak vacation season is also prime time for home burglaries, according to the U.S. Bureau of Justice. How safe is your home?While your mind may already be in vacation mode, before you head out, take some time to run through this home security checklist to ensure your home is safe and sound while you’re off relaxing and enjoying the sites on your trip.Invest in a monitored home security system. You may feel you live in a safe neighborhood, where a security system is unnecessary, but this really is your first line of defense against anyone who wants to enter your home while you’re away. Security companies today offer a number of the devices we’ve previously mentioned to help monitor your home, from door and window sensors to doorbell cameras, motion detectors, cameras and glass-break sensors. Not only are you able to monitor your home from an app on your phone, you’ll also have the peace of mind knowing the security company is watching over your home and will alert authorities if there is ever a breach in your system.Use smart switches and programmable lights. Especially handy when you’re away from the house, these smart devices have an “away mode” which will periodically switch on a light or television to make it appear as if someone is home.Add smart door locks. Purchased individually, or through your home security company, smart door locks allow you to lock and unlock your front door remotely. You may also grant temporary access with expiring door codes for any family, neighbors or pet sitters who may be looking in on your home and pets while you are away. Keep track of exactly who enters your home and when with a smart lock.Install a doorbell camera. These simple, affordable and easy-to-use devices are becoming increasingly popular. A doorbell camera allows you to monitor your front door and answer your door from anywhere. When someone approaches your front door or rings your doorbell, you’ll get a notification on your smartphone and will be able to engage in a two-way conversation with that individual.Reschedule or cancel package deliveries. Schedule any package deliveries to arrive before you leave or after you get home from vacation. Deliveries left on your porch aren’t just a temptation for porch snatchers, they’re also a clear indication nobody is home. Don’t leave any notes on your front door for mail, package delivery or visitors either. Doing so is just a green light for would-be burglars. You can suspend mail delivery while your away. Simply go to USPS.com to put a hold on your delivery until you return from vacation. This service is free for 30 days.Keep your plans private. Avoid making any public announcements that you’re headed off on vacation. This includes social media, email autoreply and voicemail. If you’re one who enjoys posting photos on social media, hold off on posting your vacation photos until you are safely at home, or be sure to check privacy settings on and photos you do post to ensure only friends are able to view them. Don’t mention the dates you’ll be away and keep any work voicemail or email autoreply messages vague, without any details.Remove any spare keys. Gather up emergency house keys you may have stashed under the doormat or in flower pots. As clever as you think your hiding spot may be, it’s probably the first place a potential burglar would look. Before you leave, double check that all doors and windows are shut and locked.Install motion-sensor security lights. Anyone attempting to break into your home will likely hide in dark areas around your home to stay out of view of your neighbors. Motion-sensor lights around the exterior of your home will illuminate your house when someone is nearby.Close curtains and shut blinds. Keep blinds closed so anyone looking can’t see inside your home, looking for valuables, electronics and other items to steal.Check batteries in all home security devices. Make sure motion detectors, cameras and smoke detectors batteries are good and won’t die while you’re away. Although they come with a higher price tag, higher quality batteries are worth the investment over budget batteries in these devices throughout your home.Unplug non-essential electronics. You’ll save a little extra on your electric bill but you’ll also reduce the risk of a fire while you’re away by unplugging TVs, coffee-makers, computers, printers, and other non-essential electronics. Should a storm pass through while you’re on vacation, any unplugged appliances and devices will be protected from a power surge, which can short out your equipment and cause a fire.Shut off the water main. To avoid damage from any burst pipes or other problems while you’re away, turn off the water main. Even if you need to keep the main line on so your sprinkler system will run, you can individually shut off the water supply to toilets, sinks, the ice maker, washing machine and dishwasher.Secure any valuables in a safe deposit box. Don’t leave anything of value in plain sight that may be able to be seen from a window. Make a record of your valuables and take pictures of high-ticket belongings such as laptops, TVs and jewelry. Should the worst happen, you’ll at least have a record to provide police and be able to confirm ownership of any items that are recovered by police.Taking these steps to protect your home isn’t about being paranoid, but about giving yourself some peace-of-mind so you’ll be able to enjoy your vacation to the max without concern for what’s happening back at home. And if you are looking for the peace of mind that comes from knowing your mortgage is in good shape, contact a PrimeLending home loan expert who run the numbers and see if refinancing makes sense.To find out how PrimeLending can help make your dreams come true, see Becky Carver and her team at 2401 Kresky Avenue in Chehalis or call 360-262-4005.last_img read more

Coach doubts Chelsea man will agree move to Brazil

first_imgSantos head coach Muricy Ramalho has appeared to suggest that Florent Malouda is highly unlikely to move to Brazil.The France international, whose wife is Brazilian, is reported to be considering offers from a number of the South American country’s top clubs, including Vasco da Gama.Malouda has been tipped to leave Chelsea this summer, but Ramalho told local media the player’s wage demands mean a move away from Europe looks improbable.“Malouda was offered to us. He is a very interesting player, but you get scared when they tell you their demands,” he is quoted as saying.“They say they are in crisis in Europe, but they spend so much money on transfers there. He was offered to us, but when you think about his wages, it gets hard.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Productive sectors to create jobs: Zuma

first_img9 November 2011 President Jacob Zuma says the 2008-9 global economic crisis taught South Africa not to count on growth for sustainable job creation, but to focus on strengthening productive sectors capable of creating employment on a large scale. Despite continuing global economic pressures, and growing frustration among South Africa’s unemployed youth, Zuma was optimistic that things would improve soon, while reaffirming that job creation remained the government’s top priority. He was speaking at the 5th National Convention of the Federation of Unions of South Africa (Fedusa) in Boksburg, east of Johannesburg, on Tuesday.Slight decrease in unemployment rate Quoting the Quarterly Labour Force Survey for the third quarter, which reported that SA’s unemployment rate decreased from 25.7% to 25% in the second quarter and that total employment rose by 193 000 in the quarter ended September, Zuma said it was encouraging that the most growth was among people aged between 25 and 34 years. “These figures may look like a drop in the ocean when one looks at the scores that still remain without jobs,” Zuma said. “However, for those individuals whose lives will be enhanced due to being gainfully employed, the statistics are most meaningful. “And for those who are still searching for jobs … they want to hear that the situation will improve – and it will improve,” Zuma said. The government aims to create five million jobs by 2020 through a new growth trajectory by increasing investment in infrastructure development, sectors such as manufacturing and the so-called “green” economy. Zuma said South Africa had learned its lessons from the 2008-9 global economic crisis, which saw the country losing more than one million jobs. The lesson was that one cannot count on growth to create sustainable employment. Rather, he said, the government was strengthening productive sectors such as infrastructure, mining and agriculture, rural development and manufacturing, because they created employment on a large scale.Drive to cut ‘red tape’ blocking business He told the congress that the government was working on other programmes in order to create job opportunities. He added that the number of public sector internships would be increased by five percent or 60 000 positions by 2013. This would give young people work exposure and hold them in good stead when they went looking for formal employment. Calling for more private-public partnerships in creating jobs, Zuma said the government was working on addressing “red tape” in the private sector, such as unnecessary regulatory delays and lack of financing. Already, a task team has been set up to address bureaucratic blockages to major private investments and projects “We are serious about the need for government to act swiftly to cut the notorious red tape,” Zuma said.

Watchdog group urges probe of Ivanka Trump tax break role

first_imgWASHINGTON — A watchdog group is asking the Justice Department to investigate whether President Donald Trump’s daughter Ivanka violated federal conflict-of-interest law by her key role in promoting an Opportunity Zone tax break program from which she could potentially benefit.The complaint from the Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington follows an Associated Press investigation last month. The AP found that, as White House aides, Trump and her husband Jared Kushner both backed the Opportunity Zones program, which could financially benefit the couple.Kushner owns a $25 million to $50 million stake in Cadre, a real estate platform has announced plans to invest in several cities under the Opportunity Zones program.The CREW complaint says that, under the law, Kushner’s financial interests are considered of value to Ivanka Trump.Stephen Braun, The Associated Presslast_img read more
