first_img Ruby Walsh made all of the running on the 4-6 favourite, trained by Willie Mullins, but he was ridden with a bit more restraint than had been expected. Even so, Un De Sceaux had all his rivals at full stretch coming down the hill. God’s Own (33-1) tried to make a race of it but he could not compete on the run to the line and had to settle for being beaten six lengths in second place. Un De Sceaux lived up to his billing as he duly landed the odds in the Racing Post Arkle Trophy at the Cheltenham Festival. Josses Hill (12-1) stayed on to take third spot, two lengths away. The victory gave Mullins and Walsh a double in the first two races of the meeting after Douvan struck in the opener. Walsh said: “He has got a turn of foot. I wasn’t going that hard and I knew that when I gave him a squeeze he would quicken up and he’s pinged the last. “He didn’t come to the Festival last year, he went to France twice, and you can see it’s made a man of him. “He’s not an easy horse and they have minded and nurtured him. They’ve done a great job. “I rode Master Minded and Azertyiuop so going that speed is nothing new to me.” Mullins said: “It was just fantastic. He was very clever. He jumped the first two nicely and settled into a rhythm in his jumping. “He jumped the water very easy, probably the first time he’d jumped one in his life, then came to the ditch which is a big test for a novice after the water. He pricked his ears and flew it again. “I got a fright when God’s Own came up beside him, but Ruby sat and then he just flew up the hill. “He’s not a typical racehorse and I don’t think he’s any pedigree, either, which is extraordinary. He is what we call a pure freak.” Mullins will now target Punchestown, and added: “He was very good with his jumping, he’s improved so much. He jumped like he was a handicapper the whole way round. Ruby thought he settled better today. He’s getting more mature with each race. He set himself up for the fences rather than getting Ruby to do it. “Some people like to go to Grade One races with a horse when they’re not ready, but I’m not keen on doing that. A jumper’s career is over many years and I don’t want it all at once, you have to let them mature and come round. Today it has paid off. I want them to go up the steps of the ladder one by one.” Tom George was delighted with the effort of God’s Own and thought the better ground had helped his cause. He said: “That isn’t a fluke, he was a Grade One winner last year when he beat Champagne Fever and a few others. “We had a blip in mid-winter but he simply can’t go on soft ground . We won’t even try running him on soft ground next year, good to soft is as bad as he wants it. “We will look at Aintree and Punchestown now, see where the best ground is and looking at that he will get two and a half miles.” Nicky Henderson was satisfied with Josses Hill and felt a sound pace had brought out the best in his runner. He said: “He’s run a great race. Fair play to Barry (Geraghty), he always said he would jump better in a faster run race. The quicker pace just helps his impulsion – when they are going slower he’s too brave. “I don’t know where we will go next, we could go two and a half miles, but I think Ruby should be fined for speeding!” Press Associationlast_img read more

At the time, Syracuse trailed by just seven to the nation’s top team.Throughout the Orange’s (3-7, 1-5 Atlantic Coast) current seven-game losing streak Shafer has stressed that his team continue to “control the controllables,” but that’s something he didn’t do against Clemson.When asked Tuesday on his weekly teleconference about the challenge of contradicting himself, Shafer said, “Good point. I made a mistake on that play.

first_imgThis Saturday, ESPN College Gameday will be at the USC-Washington game in Seattle. I’ve grown up a USC fan, and for as long as I can remember, I’ve loved getting to watch Gameday and have always wanted to go to a show when they were at USC. I’ve always been entertained by the signs and the antics that come with the show. Now in my junior year, one of my main wishes as a student has been to have Gameday on campus. I still haven’t had the chance. I almost had the chance in 2013 when Gameday was at Stanford when USC was visiting Palo Alto. Ironically enough, my parents were at the game while I was in the mountains on a church retreat. I had an amazing time while on retreat, but getting the videos of the Trojan victory and fans storming the field from current students, friends and USC alum sent to me made it all bittersweet. In 2014, I lived vicariously through my best friend Nicolette, a Baylor fan, when Gameday stopped in Waco, Texas for the Kansas State-Baylor game. It was really cool to hear about how she spent the night on a grass field surrounded by her fellow Bears fans making posters, getting free gear and bonding together as a fan base. She was even lucky enough to get her sign on the broadcast. It was everything I had wanted to experience, but I looked forward to the possibility of Gameday being at USC either of the next three seasons. There were rumors and speculations of Gameday coming to USC during my sophomore season, but nothing panned out. I was halfway through my time at USC, but undeterred from the chances of it actually happening. On Sunday morning, while I was at home, my dad came in my room to tell me, “Guess where Gameday is going on Saturday?” Frankly, I didn’t want to believe it. I even hesitated to say the Washington game because it meant that Gameday was going to be at a USC game and I was not. Of course, Gameday would be at Washington. It stung even more because I was supposed to be in Seattle for the game. Not only would I get to work the game on the field, I was also going to get to visit friends from home that I hadn’t seen in awhile. On top of all of that, I would get to participate in the excitement that is College Gameday. But, of course, because of some commitments for a class project, I am not able to go up to Seattle for the game. It’s a bummer for a number of reasons, because I also love Seattle, but it’s a huge bummer because I’m missing out on the opportunity to participate in Gameday.With only one home game left against 3-6 Notre Dame, I can almost certainly say that College Gameday will not be making the trek to L.A. to cover the game. Another USC football season through, another season without Gameday on USC’s campus. Just as I have over the last two seasons, I’ll survive by looking forward to the possibility that Gameday will make an appearance. Looking forward, there’s a huge part of me hoping that Gameday will come in September when the Texas Longhorns make their way to the Coliseum. While the Trojans have a 4-1 all-time record against the Longhorns, every Trojans fan knows about the poor taste left behind by the 2005 National Championship Game — the last time the Trojans and Longhorns faced off. Even though this season isn’t done yet, I’ll be looking forward to next season and Sept. 16 when there’s a real chance that College Gameday could once again be on our campus.

first_imgBALTIMORE — The yellow penalty flag plummeted to the turf in front of the Syracuse bench as head coach John Desko raised his arms and barked at the official. Late in the third quarter of its opening-round NCAA tournament game against No. 8 seed Loyola, SU had been keeping the Greyhounds at arm’s length. Every time Loyola managed a goal, the Orange scored one of its own. But Syracuse had just surrendered a man-up goal to the Greyhounds and seven seconds after LU’s faceoff man, Bailey Savio, won the ensuing melee for the ball, Syracuse long stick midfielder Jared Fernandez was called for a push while riding his defender to the sideline. Desko didn’t agree with the call, but that didn’t matter.Loyola’s top-flight offense took the field and minced SU’s man-down defense. Savio won the ensuing faceoff. “I was frustrated,” Desko said. “I thought Jared kind of rode the guy out of bounds and it wasn’t terrible. It wasn’t like he shoved him or anything like that. To lose the faceoff, to give up the one on the man-up, then give another man-up right away off the faceoff, that was difficult.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s (9-5, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) combination of untimely, back-to-back penalties from Fernandez and Brett Kennedy and an inability to win faceoffs and control possession in the second half left the door open. Loyola (12-4, 7-1 Patriot) came in, kicked SU out and slammed it shut, topping the Orange 15-13 after scoring seven straight goals from 2:23 left in the third quarter into the last two minutes. SU, which controlled most of the game to that point, crashed out in the first round of the NCAA tournament for the second straight year. “I could just see the energy in our sideline develop in that moment,” Loyola head coach Charley Toomey said of the second man-up goal. “When we hit Chase (Scanlan) on that backside, that got us going.”When Kennedy wandered to the penalty box with 2:57 left in the third quarter, the Orange nursed a four-goal lead, the largest for either team. A couple more goals may have secured a victory. Instead, with extra space to operate, the Greyhounds offense whipped the ball around the outside of Syracuse’s defense, seeking an open shooting line or pass inside.The ball rested in Tewaaraton finalist Pat Spencer’s stick at the top of the alley when he spotted Aidan Olmstead standing on the backside of the crease. Before SU goalie Drake Porter fully moved to cover his goal mouth, Olmstead was already putting Spencer’s feed in the back of the net.On the next man-up situation, less than a minute later, Loyola got an identical look, but to Porter’s opposite side. This time, Olmstead fed midfielder Chase Scanlan, who easily beat Porter.In a 33 second span, the Greyhounds cut the Orange’s lead in half.“When you get two in a row, especially in a close game like that, it definitely swings the momentum a little bit,” Loyola midfielder John Duffy said. “When you’re able to capitalize on it, it makes a world of difference.”Riding the wave of momentum into the fourth quarter, the Greyhounds started dominating possession, keyed mainly by Savio. He dominated SU’s faceoff duo of sophomore Jakob Phaup and junior Danny Varello after playing relatively even in the first half. Kaci Wasilewski | Senior Staff WriterSyracuse had two faceoff violations in the third quarter and risked giving up an extra-man opportunity with a third. In response, SU’s specialists had to react to the whistle instead of anticipating it, letting Savio get the jump. In the second half, Loyola won 10-of-13 faceoffs.Constantly defending, Syracuse’s back line wore down in the fourth quarter. Spencer started to get the best of Mellen and rifled assists left and right, eventually setting the NCAA record for career assists (226). When Syracuse needed a short stick to help contain Spencer, the first slide often came in time, Mellen said, but SU’s defense struggled to fill in the space left where the second slide should’ve come.Against fatigued defenders, Loyola poured in four goals through the first 7:14 of the fourth quarter, flipping a two-goal deficit into a two-goal lead. The Greyhounds parlayed two lapses by the Orange into an 8-1 run that ended the game and SU’s season.“There was still so much time left on the clock and then, again, those penalties were off of faceoffs,” Desko said. “So it was Kennedy on the slash and Jared on the push, so did those mistakes come because of playing so much defense?”It’s a question Desko has all offseason to mull over.

first_imgGuzal Yusupova walked back toward the Syracuse bench after a soft net handshake with Duke’s Kelly Chen. Yusupova’s eyes stared at the ground as she walked back to her bench, and she slammed her racket against the tennis bag twice before Jennifer Meredith walked over. The Orange’s top singles player had just lost her singles match in a third-set tiebreaker, 10-6. Yusupova had a chance to beat the No. 7 player in the country but eventually trailed off.Yusupova and the rest of No. 25 Orange (6-2, 1-1 Atlantic Coast) lost their match, 7-0, against No. 10 Duke (9-2, 2-1) and lost 14 of 16 sets overall. Net hit after net hit, out after out and groan after groan from the crowd. After opening the season with a six-match winning streak, Syracuse has now lost two-straight — including 4-2 to Columbia last Friday.“They are a top-ten team for a reason,” Syracuse head coach Younes Limam said.The Orange already faced an uphill battle when four ranked singles opponents and a ranked doubles pairing strolled onto the Drumlins Country Club courts before the match, compared to Syracuse’s only ranked player: No. 77 Yusupova.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textYusupova started her match serving and at 30-30, a 13-hit rally ended when she dropped a shot out-of-bounds. Chen and the senior battled back-and-forth and exchanged the lead continually during that opening set. Whenever Chen’s shots went out-of-bounds and she winced at the lost point, Yusupova responded with an out-of-bounds hit of her own.Chen eventually rallied back against Yusupova to tie the first set, 1-1, and had Yusupova running from alley lane to alley lane during a 30-all point. The senior could only respond with a backhand that flew out of bounds.When Yusupova smashed a winner past Chen and pushed ahead 4-3, Chen clenched her teeth and complained to head coach Jamie Ashworth. Despite all of Chen’s frustrations, she topped Yusupova 7-5 in their opening set.That paralleled Syracuse’s other matches against the Blue Devils, who had already clinched because of victories against Syracuse’s Miranda Ramirez (6-1, 6-2), Zeynep Erman (6-1, 6-3) and Sonya Treshcheva (6-4, 6-3). The Orange couldn’t recover from a lost doubles point, something they did against St. John’s on Feb. 4 and Boston College on Feb. 15.Yusupova battled back in her second set and took advantage of Chen’s frustrations from earlier. Slices agitated Chen, and at one point Yusupova fired an ace past the Duke junior, who had no reaction.“Guzal is the biggest fighter I’ve ever seen in my life,” said Erman postgame. “She never gives up, she fights for every ball, she’s the number one.”To start the third set, Chen took the lead 3-0 after a few net hits and long balls from the SU senior. Then, it extended to 4-0 after another out-of-bounds hit from Yusupova — who hit her racket on the court in frustration. Despite three straight-points from Yusupova in the tiebreak, Chen rebuilt her lead back to four after a few long rallies, an overhead spike and a backhand winner.By that point, the rest of Syracuse had gathered alongside court three. Duke blew past each of the bottom five singles matches with ease and ensured the Orange wouldn’t beat their second ranked opponent this season. Yusupova swung her racket back and forth, awaiting Chen’s serve.“That’s it Guzal,” Kim Hansen shouted, still trying to encourage from the sidelines.But Yusupova hit one straight into the net through with her backhand, and eventually Chen’s cross-court forehand flew across while Yusupova watched aimlessly. Minutes later, the Orange clumped together for their postgame stretching circle. Duke had successfully handled both of Syracuse’s doubles matches, all five of the previous singles and even solved the Orange’s top-ranked player.“I can promise you we are going to watch more (film) this week,” Limam said.

first_img Source: Atletico Madrid midfielder Joao Felix has been named the 2019 Golden Boy, after a strong start to his career at Wanda Metropolitano.Felix joined Atletico for £113 million ($146m) back in July, after rising through the ranks at Benfica over the previous five years.The 20-year-old contributed 15 goals and seven assists to Benfica’s cause last season, and has picked up from where he left off at the start of the 2019-20 campaign in Spain.Felix has been a standout performer for Atletico, racking up 13 appearances across all competitions in total and scoring three goals.The Portuguese has now picked up this year’s Golden Boy award, ahead of Borussia Dortmund‘s Jadon Sancho and Red Bull Salzburg forward Erling Haaland.Felix has joined a prestigious list of past winners which includes Lionel Messi, Paul Pogba and Kylian Mbappe, with last year’s award given to Juventus defender Matthijs de Ligt.He expressed his delight after receiving the Tuttosport distributed prize on Wednesday morning and paid tribute to Benfica head coach Bruno Lage for the key role he has played in his development.Felix told Tuttosport: “Thanks to Tuttosport for the Golden Boy Award 2019, I am very proud.“It is the second time that a player from Atletico Madrid has won this award and I am happy.“Thanks also to Benfica, in particular to coach Bruno Lage for all he has done for me and my family that is always close to me.”Sancho finished second in the final voting for the highly-coveted individual accolade, after helping Dortmund fight for the Bundesliga title last term while also earning his first caps for England‘s national team.Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz came in third, one spot ahead of Haaland, who has earned plenty of plaudits for his goalscoring exploits in the Champions League with Salzburg.De Ligt ended up fifth, while Barcelona and Manchester City teenagers Ansu Fati and Phil Foden secured sixth and seventh respectively, with the latter the Premier League’s sole representative in the top 10.last_img read more
