first_img The 31-year-old saw his first-half free-kick deflect in off Daniel Sturridge to put relegation-threatened Saints on course for an invaluable 3-1 victory at St Mary’s – his 13th of the season, making him the top English scorer in the Barclays Premier League. Lambert said: “I am still pinching myself. I am really enjoying the season.” With talk of a call-up to Roy Hodgson’s national side, it is a far cry from the beetroot factory he worked in little over a decade ago and the years spent plying his trade in the lower leagues. “Obviously there have been some lows but the highs have been unbelievable and I am confident there are plenty more to come in my career, hopefully at Southampton. It is going really well but we’re still not safe, there are still points to be taken, but the lads are absolutely buzzing after that result. I think everybody knows the relationship I have with Liverpool. “It was a massive game and my family were there, but obviously I am professional and my main focus was to try and get three points. I am just over the moon that my goal helped get three points.” It is a victory that gives Southampton a seven-point cushion over the drop zone ahead of Sunday’s fixtures. “It was massively important that we got the three points,” Lambert said. “I think we have been unlucky these last few weeks and deserved a few more points than what we’ve got. “But I don’t really like saying that, I am just happy to say we got the three points. You can say all day that you’re unlucky and that, but it is the points that matter and we managed to get the points along with a great performance, which is even better.” The defeat of Liverpool was a relief for Southampton as all too often their performances have not been rewarded with points. Saints have been praised for the high pressing game employed since Mauricio Pochettino replaced Nigel Adkins, although the win over Liverpool was just his second in eight matches at the helm. Liverpool fan Rickie Lambert is “still pinching himself” after his impressive first season in the top-flight continued as Southampton overcame his boyhood club.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts,  (CMC )– Kjorn Ottley hit his maiden Super50 Cup century as Barbados Pride put one foot in the semi-finals with a comfortable four-wicket win over reigning champions CCC Marooners here Sunday.The in-form Pride chased down an uncomplicated target of 208 at Warner Park, with the left-handed Ottley leading the way with an unbeaten 101 off 127 balls.For Pride, it was their fifth win in six outings and it put them on 20 points, helping them to open up a significant eight-point gap on second placed hosts Leeward Islands Hurricanes at the top of Group A.The loss for Marooners, meanwhile, was the fourth in fifth matches and it virtually ruled them out of a place in the semi-finals.They got half-centuries from Akshaya Persaud (55) and Sadique Henry (54) to reach 207 for nine off their 50 overs, after choosing to bat.With the innings slumping at 96 for six in the 28th over, Persaud and Henry came together in a 76-run, seventh wicket stand to rescue their side.Persaud, a 22-year-old left-hander in only his fifth List A match, struck four fours and a six in a 91-ball knock to complete his second half-century of the tournament, while Henry faced 69 deliveries and counted five fours and a six.Much of the damage was done by West Indies fast bowler Miguel Cummins who snatched three early wickets to finish with four for 29 while off-spinner Ashley Nurse supported with two for 32.In reply, Pride were given a handy start by Ottley who put on 74 for the first wicket with Leniko Boucher who made 25 from 44 balls with four boundaries.Bouncer was looking set when he fished at a widish delivery from seamer and captain Carlos Brathwaite and was taken behind by wicketkeeper Gian Benjamin, diving to his right in the 15th over.Nicholas Kirton (10) and captain Jonathan Carter (7) then fell cheaply as Pride stumbled, losing three wickets for 28 runs to be 102 for three in the 22nd over.Ottley, however, stabilised the run chase, adding 33 for the fourth wicket with the in-form Kyle Mayers (19) before putting on a further 45 for the fifth wicket with wicketkeeper Tevyn Walcott who made a busy 25 from 28 balls with four fours.All told, Ottley struck 10 fours and two sixes, reaching triple figures in the 45th over with a driven single to deep cover off Brathwaite.last_img read more

first_img Published on December 14, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.edu Quentin Hillsman rose to his feet on the sideline in anticipation of La’Shay Taft’s wide-open 3-point attempt from the left wing. Taft set her feet, received a cross-court pass and let it go.The Syracuse head coach then threw his arms in the air and tilted his head, trying to will the ball into the basket. But a split second later, his arms and head went down.It was Taft’s sixth shot of the first half against Coppin State. And it was her sixth miss.‘Some days we have on days, some days we have off days,’ Taft said. ‘It’s life, you know?’For Taft and Syracuse, it seems that nearly every game this season has been an off day from beyond the arc. The Orange (7-3, 0-1 Big East) is shooting a paltry 23.2 percent from 3-point range through 10 games this year. That dismal shooting performance has made Syracuse a one-dimensional team on offense, with a predictable strategy heading into each game. It’s something that has played a large part in SU losing three of its last four games.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse will try again to find its stroke on the perimeter against Xavier (3-5) at the Duel in the Desert on Sunday at 3 p.m. in Las Vegas. The Orange also plays Oklahoma (4-3) and Ohio (5-5) as part of the tournament.The Orange went 12-for-76 (15.8 percent) from long range in its last four games and relied too heavily on its inside game as a result. Every time down the floor, the first option is to get the ball to SU center Kayla Alexander and the forwards on the block.Without even a marginal threat on the perimeter, though, opponents have keyed on shutting down the inside, daring Syracuse’s guards to shoot as they packed the paint on defense. It was a strategy an inferior Coppin State team employed to give the Orange a scare in a 56-50 narrow SU victory last Saturday. But even as the turnovers piled up, Syracuse continued to throw the ball down low into traffic.‘We got in our high-low and when we didn’t get it, it would be a turnover and we were still were looking and were forcing it, pounding it in,’ SU guard Carmen Tyson-Thomas said. ‘Because when you’re not making shots, you have to do something else.’Looking inside proved to be the only option against Coppin State. So as Tyson-Thomas said, the Orange forced the ball into the post.On one possession early in the second half, Rachel Coffey came down the floor and scanned her options. She zeroed in on Alexander, who was fighting for position in the low post and lobbed a pass in her direction from the top of the key.But Alexander had already turned away and the ball fell into the waiting arms of Eagles center Jeanine Manley. Hillsman could only lean back helplessly against the scorer’s table, bewildered by the play as Coppin State rushed up the court for an easy bucket in transition.The Eagles knew exactly what to expect on each Orange possession. And it showed.Syracuse finished with 27 turnovers and went 17-for-70 from the field — its worst shooting performance of the year.‘The past couple games we haven’t really shot the ball (well) from the perimeter,’ Hillsman said. ‘But obviously we can see what those results are when you don’t. … So we need to get some balance and we need to get our guards scoring the basketball.’It starts with Taft. The guard arrived at Syracuse as a heralded recruit known for her accuracy from 3-point range. But in her sophomore season, that shooting touch has inexplicably disappeared. She is 15-for-71 from long range this season, a 21.1 percent clip.Her struggles were perhaps most obvious last Saturday against Coppin State. She missed all six shot attempts in the first half, and her off day continued after the break.After misfiring on her first two shots of the second half, Taft shot an air ball from beyond the arc on the left wing with just over six minutes to play. On SU’s ensuing possession, Taft revealed her frustration. Despite being outnumbered 1-on-4 on the break and with Hillsman urging her to pull it out, she forced the issue and missed a left-handed layup.It was her 10th and final shot of the night. Ten misses.‘I’m going through a little process now, trying to find the rituals and get a rhythm, see what works for me,’ Taft said. ‘I’ve got to do something consistent and have a good rhythm to getting things done. So that’s a process that I’m in now in trying to find myself and my game.’rjgery@syr.edu Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgHeather Gray | Daily TrojanJudge James Gray, the former vice presidential candidate for Gov. Gary Johnson’s failed 2012 presidential campaign, came to speak to USC students about the United States’ failed drug policies, as well as the consequences of the drug war in America in Waite Phillips Hall Wednesday at 7 p.m. Hosted by the Young Americans for Liberty, Gray is the first speaker in a series that will be presented by the USC club. Gray, a libertarian, graduated from USC’s Gould School of Law in 1971, then served in the Peace Corps and in the Naval JAG. He now presides as a judge for the Superior Court of Orange County in California. Gray has been speaking publicly about the errors in the United States’ drug policies for years. He published a book, Why Our Drug Laws Have Failed and What We Can Do About It: A Judicial Indictment of the War on Drugs, on the subject in 2001.Chad Lonski, the president of Young Americans for Liberty and a writer for the Daily Trojan, spoke on why this discussion was important for USC students to hear, especially as it touched on numerous issues relevant to the upcoming election.“I think a lot of students want to get over this hurdle of poor drug policy,” Lonski said. “At least with California and the marijuana laws that will be coming up on the next election, it’s gonna be a very controversial issue, especially in young liberal-minded students.” Gray explained how the issues the United States has with drugs is less with drug users and more with drug money that is involved — the main driving factor of the ongoing drug war. Gray supports regulating drugs for quality control, as well as cutting money off from illegal groups that profit off of drugs. “We’re ruining a lot of people’s lives in a way, taking a lot of parents away from their children, filling up our jails, taking a whole lot of resources that could better be spent elsewhere,” Gray said.Gray further detailed how the government is focusing on criminalizing drugs when instead they should be taxed and regulated, much like tobacco and alcohol currently are. “I think any time you impose boundaries on people’s personal lives, there will be issues, and obviously that is reflected in the drug war. Marijuana should definitely be regulated,” said Bella Estrada, a junior majoring in history who agreed with Gray’s stance on U.S. drug policies.Gray encouraged all eligible voters to support Proposition 64, the Marijuana Legalization Initiative, as it will start the process of rectifying California’s drug policies. “One thing you can do is vote in favor of Prop 64,” Gray said. “If California goes away from drug prohibition, if they were to go for regulated marijuana, the federal government will have to start changing policy.”last_img read more

first_imgThe No. 2-ranked USC men’s water polo team got back in the winning column Saturday with two blowout wins over No. 11-ranked Princeton and Whittier in their home opener at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center.Making a splash · Senior driver Nikola Vavic recorded two hat tricks in the Trojans’ two victories this weekend. The Trojans started slow in their first game back since their loss to UCLA in the NorCal Tournament earlier this month, but recovered to finish off the Princeton Tigers 22-4 and the Whittier Poets 23-2 this weekend at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center. – Chris Roman | Daily TrojanThe doubleheader began with the Trojans netting a 22-4 win over a strong Princeton team and immediately following it up with a 23-2 rout of Whittier for the second time this season. With the pair of wins, USC (12-1) also extends its 30-game home winning streak.This comes just a week after crosstown rival UCLA snapped the Trojan’s 41-game winning streak in the championship game of the NorCal Tournament 9-8.USC started slow against Princeton, as both teams were scoreless in the first four minutes.The Trojans, however, would start their offensive outpour soon after beginning with a goal by senior two-meter Connor Virjee. With that goal, the team would take a 1-0 advantage, and there was no looking back from there as redshirt junior driver Zach Lucas put a goal in just 30 seconds later.The theme of the day for the Trojans was “spreading the love,” as eight different Trojans netted USC’s first eight goals and 13 different USC players scored on the day.The main emphasis of the day though, according to USC head coach Jovan Vavic, was not offense but defense.“We really wanted to focus on playing better defense, and I felt like we did a much better job with our half-pool defense,” Vavic said.Redshirt sophomore two-meter player Mac Carden came up big for the Trojans against Princeton. Carden had four goals on the day, but had great defensive intensity as well.“[Carden] had a lot of steals on defense today and was playing harder than anyone on our team, which was motivating us to raise our intensity,” senior utility player Mace Rapsey said.The Trojans were up on the Tigers 10-4 before a 12-goal offensive outburst that gave them the 22-4 win. Drivers Lucas, junior Kostas Genidounias, senior Nikola Vavic and Rapsey had hat tricks in the win, while senior two-meter Jeremy Davie and junior driver Marc Vonderweidt also had multigoal games with two each. Senior James Clark recorded double-digit saves in goal with 10.“We had a great scoring day on offense and it was nice to see so many people getting on the board,” Vonderweidt said.Following a short break, the team continued its scoring run against Whittier, blasting 11 straight goals into the back of the net to take a big early lead. The Poets would eventually get on the board late in the first half with a man-up goal by attacker Nicholas Beavers.Eleven different USC players would score against the Poets and a plethora of players would have multigoal games led by Genidounias, who had four. Vavic, redshirt junior Ivan Kustic and Carden also had hat tricks. Sophomore Aleck Ryner and redshirt junior Paul Mitre would relieve Clark in goal and netted eight saves in a combined effort.And though the elder Vavic was happy with his team’s performance on defense, he wasn’t very impressed with his team’s large scoring output, mainly because of the many goal-scoring opportunities that it didn’t capitalize on.“We basically missed 15 one or nobodies today, so we need to do a much better job finishing and be more focused in those situations,” coach Vavic said.USC will stay at home and jump into Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play next Saturday, Oct. 5 against UC Irvine.
