West Florida falls in doubleheader against UNA

first_img North Alabama* 2/15/2015 – 1 p.m. CT Preview Next Game: Story Links Live Stats Watch Live Strike Out Cancer Day Video Full Schedule Roster PENSACOLA, Fla.  – The University of West Florida softball team lost both games of its doubleheader against the University of North Alabama Saturday afternoon. The Argonauts (1-6, 0-2) fell in game one to the Lions 7-0 and then 5-1 in game two. “We just came out tight today and couldn’t find a way to play relaxed,” said head coach Melissa Paul. “As long as we come out tomorrow relaxed, we’ll be in good shape.” Game 1 – West Florida 0, North Alabama 7 West Florida struggled at the plate during the first game and had their first hit in the game in the fourth inning after junior Emily Pettigrew (Navarre, Fla./Pensacola State College) singled for the Argos. UWF totaled three hits in the game and had three walks. North Alabama started the scoring early for the Lions after scoring a run in the first and then followed with runs in the third and fourth to jump to an early 3-0 lead. UNA would close out the game with two runs in the sixth and seventh to seal the 7-0 victory over the Argos. Bianca Lopez (Stuttgart, Germany/Patch American HS), Alex Marionakis (Royal Palm Beach, Fla./Royal Palm Beach HS), and Pettigrew each had hit in the game. Kalyn Chapman (Boonville, Ind./Wabash Valley JC) was credited with the loss after going one inning and gave up one run. Game 2 – West Florida 1, North Alabama 5 It was another slow start for the Argos in the second game of the doubleheader, but this time the Lions took a while to get things rolling as well. Neither team produced a run until the fourth inning after UNA scored in the top half and junior Kayla Rosario (Pensacola, Fla./Pensacola State College) batted in Chelsy Krantz (Fort Dodge, Iowa/Iowa Central CC) to keep things tied at one. However, a three run fifth inning by the Lions would give UNA the momentum and North Alabama would score an insurance run in the seventh to take the 5-1 victory. Two Argos had multiple hits in the game including Rosario who went 2-for-3 as well as Lou Barnard (Apopka, Fla./Lake Sumter State College) who also went 2-for-3. Freshman Sarah Maloney (Tamarac, Fla./Cypress Bay HS) was credited with the loss after going 4.1 innings, gave up six hits, four runs, and struck out two batters. The Argos will wrap up their three game series against North Alabama tomorrow with a single game slated to start at 1 p.m. CT. For information on all UWF athletics, visit www.GoArgos.com. #ARGOS# — www.GoArgos.com –Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Reid hungry for more after netting milestone goal

first_imgThe City academy graduate transitioned from midfield to the forward role over the summer and is the club’s top scorer this season, having netted 10 goals in all competitions.The latest of those came in the 2-0 win against Fulham at Craven Cottage on Tuesday night.Speaking after the match, Reid told BCTV: “I think the game went well. I think our game plan worked perfectly for us and we got our goals early enough to see the game out. We could probably have played better in the second half and controlled it more but overall we have got the three points here and everyone is happy.”I think that going forward you are going to get more chances, the goals keep flying in for me and I keep on plugging away. I have now got 10 goals and I want to carry it on, keep winning games and see where that takes us.last_img read more

Mendi RFL laud Tsaka re-election as PNGRFL chairman

first_imgRugby League BY JACK AMI Mendi Rugby League administrator Barclay Tenza has congratulated the election of incumbent Sandis Tsaka as he takes up his third term as the chairman of Papua New Guinea Rugby Football League. Tenza said the re-election of Tsaka as the chairman of PNGRFL for the third successive time speaks volumes in his professional management with government, corporate sectors and all the stakeholders in Papua New Guinea. He said his professionalism has brought confidence for the government and corporate sector to support rugby league in the country and has created new dimensions in his six years as the chairman. “The impasse has ruined rugby league and the current chairman and his board has brought it from nowhere to where it is now and I salute them all for their voluntarily efforts, time and commitment,” Tenza said. “The re-election of Tsaka has saved the face rugby league to go forward instead of going backwards another three years. The former rugby league president for 14 years said that with Tsaka retained as the head of rugby league in Papua New Guinea, he will continue and deliver the plans he has for the code. “We, as league presidents and administrators, should forget all our differences and politics and work together to develop rugby league in the country. “Let’s support the chairman and the confederation directors and deliver rugby league to the missing link which is the smaller rural leagues. “This is the missing link and we really have to get all our acts together and partner as a team. “We all should change our attitudes and approaches to build and establish good foundations in our respective leagues and not to dwell on the past anymore. “We should also respect one another and stop criticizing and working together to start developing school rugby league as a priority in our leagues,” Tenza said.last_img read more

Kohli sets record as India thrashes South Africa

first_img(REUTERS) – INDIA’S Virat Kohli set a new batting record as he put on another master class with an unbeaten century against hosts South Africa on Friday to secure an easy eight-wicket victory and win the one-day international series 5-1.India strode to a comfortable win at Centurion as they reached their victory target with 107 balls to spare after putting South Africa into bat and bowling them out for 204.India, who have taken over from South Africa as the world’s top-ranked ODI team, were 206 for two wickets in reply in another dominant performance with captain Kohli again leading from the front.He scored 129 not out to set a new record for the most runs in a six-match ODI series.Kohli reached his 35th ODI ton in just 82 balls, was dropped on 103 and finished the six-matches with a total of 558 runs at an average of 198, easily eclipsing the previous mark of 491 runs achieved by team mate Rohit Sharma against Australia in the 2013-14 season.South Africa had been hoping for a consolation win at the end of the series, but were again in trouble early in their innings as talisman AB de Villiers (30 runs) struggled once more with the bat and wickets kept tumbling at regular intervals.Khaya Zondo, in only his third ODI, top scored with 54 as Shardul Thakur took 4-52.South Africa were all out with 19 balls still to face, setting India a modest target that Kohli comfortably reeled in with a flourish of stroke play.India, who lost the three-match test series 2-1, now plays South Africa in three Twenty20 internationals at end of their two-month tour.ScorecardSouth Africa 1st inningsAiden Markram c Shreyas Iyer b Shardul Thakur 24Hashim Amla c MS Dhoni b Shardul Thakur 10AB de Villiers b Yuzvendra Chahal 30Khaya Zondo c Hardik Pandya b Yuzvendra Chahal 54Heinrich Klaasen c Virat Kohli b Jasprit Bumrah 22Farhaan Behardien c Jasprit Bumrah b Shardul Thakur 1Chris Morris c Shikhar Dhawan b Kuldeep Yadav 4Andile Phehlukwayo c&b Shardul Thakur 34Morne Morkel c Shreyas Iyer b Hardik Pandya 20Imran Tahir c Virat Kohli b Jasprit Bumrah 2Lungi Ngidi Not Out 0Extras 0b 0lb 0nb 0pen 3w 3Total (46.5 overs) 204 all outFall of Wickets : 1-23 Amla, 2-43 Markram, 3-105 de Villiers, 4-135 Klaasen, 5-136 Behardien, 6-142 Morris, 7-151 Zondo, 8-187 Morkel, 9-192 Tahir, 10-204 PhehlukwayoBowling Ov Md Rn Wk Econ ExShardul Thakur 8.5 0 52 4 5.89 3wJasprit Bumrah 8 1 24 2 3.00Hardik Pandya 10 0 39 1 3.90Kuldeep Yadav 10 0 51 1 5.10Yuzvendra Chahal 10 0 38 2 3.80……………………………………………….India 1st inningsShikhar Dhawan c Khaya Zondo b Lungi Ngidi 18Rohit Sharma c Heinrich Klaasen b Lungi Ngidi 15Virat Kohli Not Out 129Ajinkya Rahane Not Out 34Extras 4b 1lb 0nb 0pen 5w 10Total (32.1 overs) 206-2Fall of Wickets : 1-19 Sharma, 2-80 DhawanDid Not Bat : Iyer, Pandya, Dhoni, Thakur, Yadav, Bumrah, ChahalBowling Ov Md Rn Wk Econ ExMorne Morkel 7 0 42 0 6.00 2wLungi Ngidi 8 1 54 2 6.75 3wChris Morris 6 0 36 0 6.00Andile Phehlukwayo 4 0 27 0 6.75Imran Tahir 7.1 0 42 0 5.86last_img read more

Messi with serious criticism after losing the title – Football World…

first_imgBarcelona captain Lionel Messi has criticized the team after losing the La Liga title.“We didn’t expect, we didn’t want to end the season like that, but this game shows to a large extent what we were like during it. We were fickle, we were a weak team, beaten with intensity, which was easily scored. We lost a lot of points where we shouldn’t have, “said Leo after the loss to Osasuna.“Real Madrid has done its thing. They did not lose a single point after the break. We lost a lot of points where we shouldn’t have. We need to be self-critical of ourselves as players, but also globally. We are Barcelona and we have to win every game “, shared the Argentine.“I have said it before. If we play like that, we can’t win the Champions League. It was clear that even La Liga could not win. We need air and to think about the Champions League. If we play like that, we will lose against Napoli “, added Messi. Follow us anywhere and anytime with the mobile application of Gong.bg.

Warriors seek revenge against Patriots tonight

first_imgTonight the Guyana Amazon Warriors will kick off their 2018 HERO Caribbean Premier League (CPL) campaign with the first of three home matches this week at the National Stadium, Providence against St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots. The Warriors have a score to settle. Last season, the Patriots had the better of the Warriors, winning both games by four wickets. However, with a revamped Warriors set up and home advantage, Warriors will feel confident in their chances.Warriors were the beneficiaries of two warm-up matches that showcased to their newly installed head-coach and assistant-coach Johan Botha and Rayon Griffith respectively, the form of some of the players.According to Botha at the end of their final warm-up match Tuesday night, the team has been settled and there are about 11 or 12 players who have put their hands up and basically picked themselves.St. Kitts and Nevis Patriots will be coming all guns blazing Looking at the overseas players, Shoaib Malik will captain the side making him an automatic pick. He has shown a liking to the Providence surface, scoring considerably well in the two matches while wicketkeeper/batsman, Luke Ronchi, has also adapted to the surface with an unbeaten 48.Left-arm seamer Sohail Tanvir has impressed with the ball and so has leg-break bowler Devindra Bishoo and left-arm orthodox spinner Veersammy Permaul while Imran Tahir, who only had the benefit of one match on the pitch, looked in sync with his tantalizing leg-break bowling.Newbie and exciting young prospect, Chris Green, has also delivered with the ball and adds to the lengthy list of off spinners in the side while his big hitting ability could add some depth to the batting order. Also, United States of America’s Saurabh Netravalkar, adds variation with the left-arm seam option to go with Tanvir.Jason Mohammed has not made that much of an impact lately but his efforts last year showed what he is capable of doing and the Warriors unit will be hoping he does the same this season.Likewise, Chadwick Walton, who is likely to open the batting with Ronchi will look to kick start the Warriors innings with a bang. With Shimron Hetmyer scoring over 170 runs in the two One Day Internationals recently at the venue, in addition to a blistering 66 in the warm-up match, he has shown his skill and determination to make an impact in the CPL if given the nod. Gajanand Singh, another top order batsman who has been in the fold before, along with new comer Akshaya Persaud are the other two batting options in the Warriors squad.Botha compared a 125-130 run score as challenging a few seasons ago but noted this year it seems that has changed to a range of 160-180.Similarly, West Indies T20 fast bowling all-rounder Keemo Paul is an exceptional talent with the head coach already impressed with him and Sherfane Rutherford who hits the ball a long way and provide the additional seam option. Romario Shepherd, Roshan Primus, Rayad Emrit are both handy with the ball and bat, making the Warriors squad one of the most rounded in the tournament.Meanwhile, in the Patriots set up, the openers alone with the likes of Chris Gayle and Evin Lewis will be the beginning of discussions for any opposition but with head coach Donovan Miller already noting Gayle isn’t under pressure to score he has exerted confidence in his team with Anton Devcich also in the fray.The West Indies T20 captain, Carlos Brathwaite has the ability to win games with both bat and ball while Bangladesh all-rounder Mahmudullah has showing his worth on the venue and during the recent T20 series in the Caribbean.Brandon King and Devon Thomas can both his the ball a far way but it is the bowling unit of Patriots that stand out. The seam pair of Sheldon Cottrell and Alzarri Joseph will be a lot to deal with while the Nepal spinner, Sandeep Lamichhamie will play a big part.Jeremiah Louis’ career has been on the rise and had been one of the standouts in the Canada T20 Global for the West Indies B side.Ben Cutting is an explosive batsman and electrifying blower, who along with Fabian Allen with his ability to score runs and slow left arm orthodox can provide stability to the side and allow the balance.last_img read more

NPFL: Rivers United Join Lobi Stars at the Top

first_imgFormer leaders Plateau United suffered another setback in their plot to reclaim the top spot, crashing 1-2 to Sunshine stars in Akure. They have been pushed further down to third spot on 25 points while the Akure Gunners have moved up to fourth on same 25 points but with lower goal difference.Akwa United who suffered a 0-2 home defeat to Kwara United in Uyo slipped out of the current Top Four.The Match-day 15 clashes were characterized by amazing three results of away victories in Warri, Aba and Uyo.Title holders Enyimba lost 0-2 at home for the first time this season to Heartland in an Oriental Derby in Aba. It is the first defeat for new Coach Fatai Osho who replaced sacked Usman Abd’Allah.The People’s Elephants are now just a step above the drop zone.Rangers made good their intentions to challenge for the NPFL team position after a poor stint in the CAF Confederation Cup group stage.The Flying Antelopes went to Warri to pick maximum points off Wolves.Rangers pulled their first away win of the season and move up from the bottom of the table, replaced there by Nasarawa United, while JigawaGolden Stars and Adamawa United remain in the red zone.At the Agege Stadium, MFM FC handed a 2-1 defeat to visiting Jigawa Golden Stars.However, the real star of the clash was Joshua Akpudje.The Delta State-born defender made all the difference scoring all three goals which do not qualify for a hat trick.After bagging the first yellow card of the game, he opened the accounts with a 34th minute own goal when he tried to defend a corner kick but ended up displacing goalkeeper Folarin Abayomi who was already in flight.Akpudje however soaked in the disappointment and remained determined.He produced the equaliser with a fine finish from a goal mouth melee in the 41st minute and proceeded to nod in the winner from Akanni Elijah’s 69th minute free kick.Akpudje told www.npfl.ng that he had the fans to thank for keeping faith with the team after the own goal, the reason he went to the crowd to celebrate the equaliser.Coach Tope Bulos said the team had a slow start but he was sure they were going to pick up steam even with the own goal.“We had a slow start but I was sure the team will pick up their element which they eventually did. For Akpudje, the own goal was a mistake and mistakes do occur. The good thing is the team was not deflated and Akpudje stood up to responsibility to produce the equaliser and the winner,” concludes the coach.MATCH-DAY 15Warri Wolves 1-2 RangersSunshine 2-1 Plateau UtdRivers Utd 2-1 Lobi StarsMFM 2-1 Jigawa GSKatsina Utd 1-1 K’PillarsEnyimba 0-2 HeartlandAkwa Utd 0-2 Kwara UtdAdamawa Utd 0-0 WikkiAbia Warriors 2-1 IfeanyiubahShare this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Rangers, Heartland, Kwara grab away victories in Warri, Aba, UyoDuro IkhazuagbeRivers United consolidated their push to the summit of the Nigerian Professional Football League (NPFL) picking maximum three points from leaders Lobi Stars in their Match-day 15 clash which ended 2-1 in favour of the Port Harcourt side.Now, the Pride of Rivers State have joined Lobi at the top on same 27 points with the Makurdi team only ahead on superior goal difference.last_img read more

However, Shane Breen and Golden Hawk left two poles down in their second round after a four-fault first attempt, while 19 year-old Wexford rider Bertram Allen, making his Hickstead Nations’ Cup debut on Molly Malone, failed to repeat his opening clear round, incurring eight faults.Mayo anchorman Cameron Hanley, however, who initially had one fence down with Antello Z, came back in the final round with a zero score. Despite this, Ireland finished on a team total of 12 faults, equal with Belgium.Ireland’s show jumping manager Robert Splaine said after the Nations’ Cup: “We almost did everything right in the first round, but we failed to repeat the performances in the second round, which was somewhat frustrating. With Darragh Kenny’s great double clear on Imothep, we had it within our grasp to deliver a better result. However, this now lays down a marker for Dublin. We know where we stand now, and we’ll have to be good in Dublin.“As always, I want to thank the owners for making it possible for us to bring such a strong team to Hickstead today.”The Discover Ireland Dublin Horse Show hosts the last of the eight legs of the 2014 Furusiyya Nations’ Cup League Division One on August 8th.HICKSTEAD NATIONS’ CUPIrish team scoresDarragh Kenny/Imothep 0/0Shane Breen/Golden Hawk 4/8Bertram Allen/Molly Malone V 0/8Cameron Hanley/Antello Z 4/0TOTAL 12 faults 25 June 2015, 18:58 Breen and Howley in the ribbons on opening day of Hickstead Related news stories 19 June 2015, 12:29 Hickstead to auction off Adventure de Kannan portrait for charitycenter_img 31 July 2015, 13:33 Breen brothers in the ribbons at Hickstead 27 June 2015, 15:15 O’Connor Second As Irish Revel In Hickstead Class IRELAND FINISHES EQUAL FOURTH IN HICKSTEAD NATIONS’ CUP Home  »  Disciplines News  »  Showjumping News  »  IRELAND FINISHES EQUAL FOURTH IN HICKSTEAD NATIONS’ CUP 1 August 2014, 19:52last_img read more

The greens were not as swift as usual but still ok to putt on.The scoring was in general very good with the little French General taking 3rd spot with a fine 33 points, coming in in second place was Sandy Chapo playing to his handicap scoring 36 points, and taking the top spot was the Lovely Sasicha for the second time in a row with 41 points.There were two 2s coming from Sasicha and Bill Marsden.Friday, August 31Phoenix CC, Monthly ScrambleThe monthly scramble at Phoenix was a great day as usual with 11 teams participating. After an early start with an orderly fashion, teams played the Mountain and Ocean loops, which were in great condition with greens that were fast and true.At the bar after it was the usual comments about how many birdies were left out there but it certainly was a grand day out.It was good to see some new faces on the podium, well not new but not seen for some time.The Billabong A team came 3rd with 57 net. The team from the Courtyard Geoff Couch made up of Helmut Hebstriet, Jeff North and Chris Brendle, came 2nd with a score of 56.3 only being beaten by one tenth of a shot by the team from the player’s lounge, Micky Beresford, Eddie Beilby, Barry Tregurther and Gareth Gill with a score of 56.2.It was good to see some of the faces that have been playing this event at the Billabong from the start coming to the podium.

It does not help when one person, who will remain nameless, had a 10 on the first hole and used a hand wedge to extricate himself from a bunker.last_img read more
