Tourists on top at Stormont

first_imgAustralia A ended the third day of their tour match against Ireland in the ascendancy after a dramatic day featuring three declarations and two centuries. Press Association Australia debutant Fawad Ahmed went wicketless but following a nervous start he bowled with enough variety and control to suggest that he may indeed represent the senior Australian side before the summer ends. Ireland captain Kevin O’Brien declared the innings at tea with the score on 186 for four – still 126 in arrears – in an move designed to take the game forward after most of Saturday was washed out. What followed was a brutal assault by New South Wales opener Nic Maddinson. He made Stirling’s innings look pedestrian by smashing 113 from just 63 balls, including 13 fours and six sixes. His partnership with Alex Doolan was worth 174 in just 122 balls before skipper Haddin called off the carnage with the lead exactly 300. Moises Henriques (two for seven) dismissed John Anderson (eight) and Alex Cusack (15) after Pattinson had made the initial breakthrough as Stirling edged through to Haddin. James Shannon (11 not out) and White (2no) will be at the crease when play resumes on Monday. center_img The hosts will resume on 51 for three and needing a further 250 for victory, but will do so without first-innings centurion Paul Stirling. Following Australia A’s overnight declaration, Stirling dispatched pace bowler James Pattinson for three boundaries in the first over to set the tone for another remarkable hundred for the Middlesex player – his eighth for Ireland. Stirling reached his half-century off just 44 balls, including 10 fours and a six, and soon found a willing partner in Andrew White. Stirling’s innings ended on 115 when he was smartly stumped by Brad Haddin from the impressive Nathan Lyon, who conceded just 34 runs in 16 overs. last_img read more

Koeman wants Saints to start better

first_img Press Association Southampton host Stoke at St Mary’s on Saturday, with Koeman highlighting Peter Crouch’s aerial threat. The former Barcelona full-back put his defensive line through a series of drills designed specifically to counter the dangers of Stoke’s former England striker. “We had specific training for the defenders this week, defending crosses, because of Peter Crouch,” Koeman said. “That’s one of his top qualities, so we have to be ready for that. “We’ve had time this week so we need those sorts of sessions to develop our team. “It’s balls into the box, and we need the goalkeeper to come out and command his defence. “He’s a player with a lot of experience. We’re not afraid about any player, but you have to respect the qualities of players to prepare yourself. “He’s tall, a good header of the ball. “If they play long balls to him, then we have to fight for the second ball. “So we have to be prepared for that.” Southampton might boast the Barclays Premier League’s meanest defence, but that did not stop boss Ronald Koeman forcing his squad to sit through a video bloopers reel this week. Saints thumped Sunderland 8-0 in their biggest win since 1921 at St Mary’s last Saturday, but Koeman still managed to compile a dossier of defensive errors. Koeman’s side have rocketed to third in the table, conceding just five goals in eight games, but the taskmaster former Holland defender nevertheless expects more from his squad. “The players had Monday and Tuesday off, and on Wednesday we showed them some clips from the first 20 minutes against Sunderland,” he said. “That’s not how I like us to start at home. They know what happened – it wasn’t a good start. “Sometimes that’s hard to talk about because we won 8-0, but we know we can start much better than last weekend. “One of our big qualities has been organisation. It’s the quality you need to win games – clean sheets are important in football. “It’s normal to think maybe that’s harsh, to be critical when we win like that, but everyone wants to get better and everyone understands we’re just trying to do that. “My job as coach is to help everyone play as well as they can, but also keep confidence and keep them free to play. “Football’s to be enjoyed, and obviously that’s much easier when you win. “We’ve got to be ourselves. The players know what we like to do, so we’ve got to keep going.” last_img read more

Trojans kick off emotion-filled week of practice

first_img“Not at all,” Vaughns said. “It’s not revenge for these guys. It’s reset and just play this game. It’s not revenge at all. We’re just trying to go out there and ball out like we usually do.”  At many schools, an 8-4 record and a bowl game are evidence of a successful season. At USC however, this performance and the results of the last two seasons are simply not enough.  Last year, USC fell to UCLA 34-27 in one of the Trojans’ worst performances of the disappointing 5-7 season.  But according to many players, the sting of that loss hasn’t entirely faded.  After a spectacular 41-17 victory at Cal last Saturday, things are looking up for head coach Clay Helton’s Trojans. After the weekend, USC is now ranked No. 23 in the latest College Football Playoff rankings, and — more importantly — half a game behind No. 7 Utah in the Pac-12 South.  “We support him 100%,” Vaughns said. “He had our backs when we came here and recruited us out of high school. We’re just trying to give him our best.”  “I’m really excited to just get an opportunity to compete — any week, regardless of whether it’s a rivalry,” Slovis said. “We don’t want to get too emotionally involved, we’ve just got another game on Saturday.” Injury Report St. Brown added that contrary to what many may think, most of the players don’t pay much attention to the controversy.  “Obviously, last year, we didn’t get the outcome that we wanted,” sophomore wide receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown said. “So I think we’re all coming into this week with a little chip on our shoulder.”  When asked about how special the USC-UCLA rivalry is, redshirt sophomore offensive tackle Jalen McKenzie underscored the game’s significance.  The coaching staff also intends to ease Vaughns, who is still recovering from an ankle injury, back into the offense. Helton said the standout receiver looked better during Tuesday’s practice than he did in last week’s practices.  A win against crosstown rival UCLA Saturday would improve the Trojans’ record to a respectable 8-4 and keep USC’s faint hopes of a Pac-12 Championship alive. Provided the criticism USC has faced all season, both achievements might go a long way in determining the future of the program.  Freshman quarterback Kedon Slovis echoed Harrell’s sentiment. “It’s the biggest week of the season — from the standpoint of self-pride, university pride,” McKenzie said. “It’s all of that, so you’re playing for everything.” center_img But before the speculation begins, the UCLA game comes first.  The Rivalry  “It’s business as usual,” Vaughns said. “We’re trying to go 1-0 this week. We’re not trying to focus on putting too much hype on the game or anything like that. We’re just trying to go out there and beat them.”  Vaughns also reiterated that the team’s mindset won’t change for the rivalry game.  With all the noise and hype that is sure to accompany the days leading up to the game, offensive coordinator Graham Harrell emphasized the importance of preparation. “Hopefully it doesn’t affect us too much,” Harrell said. “Obviously, there will be a lot of outside stuff going on and for both the fanbases it will be a big game. We got to give ourselves the best chance to go play well and the best way to do that is to prepare the right way.” Support for Coach  Despite the sting of the loss, redshirt junior wide receiver Tyler Vaughns insisted that Saturday’s game is not about revenge.  Helton said redshirt junior running back Vavae Malepeai practiced in full pads Tuesday and is getting more confident after undergoing knee surgery in October. He remains day-to-day.  Redshirt junior wide receiver Tyler Vaughns was limited against Cal but should play a larger role against UCLA. ( Ling Luo | Daily Trojan) “A lot of us don’t even see it,” St. Brown said. “We’re not all on Twitter or social media like you guys. So we don’t even see all the stuff that people [say]. Like I said, we just go out there … We know what the players are and what the coaches are, and we just go out and play.”  Given the likelihood that Saturday will be Helton’s last regular season game as USC’s head coach, his players made sure to voice their support.  Sophomore linebacker Palaie Gaoteote IV is unlikely to play against UCLA.last_img read more

Williams Wins Wimbledon, Equals Grand Slam Record

first_imgWorld number one Serena Williams on Saturday beat German fourth seed Angelique Kerber to win a seventh Wimbledon and 22nd Grand Slam title. The American, 34, coped with a gusty wind on Centre Court to win 7-5 6-3 and equal Steffi Graf’s Open era record of major titles. Kerber had beaten Williams in the Australian Open final in January but could not produce another shock.Fourteen years since she first won Wimbledon, Williams claimed the title for a seventh time after dropping just one set all tournament. The world number one banished memories of last year, when she fell two matches short of a historic calendar Grand Slam, and of losing in the Australian and French Open finals this year.“It’s been incredibly difficult not to think about it,” she said of finally winning number 22. It makes the victory even sweeter to know how hard I worked for it. This court definitely feels like home, I have a match later today in the doubles, so I’ll be back out.” Williams moves alongside German great Graf in the all-time list of Grand Slam singles champions, and just two behind overall leader Margaret Court, the Australian who won 13 of her 24 major titles before tennis turned professional in 1968.Williams had tried and failed three times to win her 22nd major title but she finally got over the line with a performance that owed as much to nerve as to skill.Kerber, 28, was the outsider but was buoyed by her win over Williams in Melbourne, and the swirling wind added another element of uncertainty to the final.The German’s serve was under pressure immediately but after she saw off three break points in the second game, Kerber managed to contain Williams for the most part with her relentless hitting from corner to corner.A pumped-up Williams roared in celebration after one lunging volley, and again when three serves got her out of trouble at 5-5, and it was Kerber’s resistance which broke first.After a carefully managed 12 games the German made only her fourth and fifth errors of the set to fall 15-40 behind, before Williams converted her second set point with a thumping backhand into the corner.Kerber was not about to fold, however, finally earning her first break point of the match at 3-3 in the second set after one hour and 13 minutes – only to watch as Williams hammered a 117mph ace out wide.And moments later an engrossing final came to a sudden end. Kerber mis-hit a backhand to drop serve and Williams then powered through her final service game, punching away a forehand volley on match point and falling back on to the Centre Court turf.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Doc Rivers pleased DeMarcus Cousins signed with Warriors, not glad to be facing him

first_imgPLAYA VISTA — Where were you when you heard DeMarcus Cousins was joining Golden State?Remember? On July 2, a day after Lebron James agreed to join the Lakers, the two-time defending champion Warriors sent a seismic jolt through the basketball world when they reached an agreement with the four-time All-Star center.Clippers coach Doc Rivers said he remembers clearly how he reacted when he heard about the signing.“I didn’t overreact like everyone else; I thought, ‘Good for DeMarcus,’ ” Rivers said. “Honestly, I thought it was great for him. I thought the Warriors were the right team to sign him, you know, because they could wait for him (to return from a torn Achilles tendon). “Listen,” Rivers continued, “… he would’ve had a huge pay day and he tore his Achilles. And the nice side of me, ’cause it’s in the summer, was thinking like, ‘Good. This’ll give him a chance to get right.’ ”That was then, of course.Now Rivers’ upstart Clippers will have to contend with a fifth All-Star in the Warriors’ starting lineup when the teams meet in the first round of the Western Conference playoffs, beginning Saturday night in Oakland. Cousins made his Golden State debut with 14 points and much fanfare against the Clippers on Jan. 18 at Staples Center. Entering his first postseason action this weekend, the 6-foot-11 center has played 30 games with the Warriors, averaging 16.3 points and collecting 8.2 rebounds and 3.6 assists.“Maybe I shouldn’t have thought that because now we’re playing them,” Rivers joked. “They’re better (with him). He’s a great player.”WELCOME BACK, DOCDespite last season’s valiant effort, the injury-plagued Clippers just missed making the playoffs, snapping Rivers’ postseason appearance streak at 10.“Yeah, it was awful,” Rivers said Friday before the Clippers held their only full practice prior to Saturday night’s series opener at Oracle Arena in Oakland. “It was awful not being in the playoffs.”He said it was tough to watch the postseason go on without him – even if he sort of remained involved, behind the scenes.“I felt like I was coaching in the playoffs,” Rivers said. “I got a lot of calls during the playoffs last year because a lot of my coaches were still in it. Honestly, it was no fun. I got one call and it was right after a game – I’m not gonna say the team or the coach – but he said, ‘What do you think about that?’ And I said, ‘Honestly, I wasn’t even watching the game. I can’t help you. I’ll go back and watch it later.’“This time, I’m in it and I can probably get some information from some of them.”center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
