College football: NSU picks up first win

first_imgNATCHITOCHES — Northwestern State gave up 35 points as the nation’s leading rusher, Kade Harrington, ran for 282 yards and all five touchdowns — and Demons coach Jay Thomas was all smiles about his defense after a breakthrough, wire-to-wire 48-35 Homecoming victory Saturday night over visiting Lamar.It was the first win in six games overall, four Southland Conference contests, for the Demons, who came off an open date with a flourish in front of a Turpin Stadium crowd of 9,133. NSU opened a 17-0 lead early in the second quarter and never allowed Lamar (3-3, 2-2) closer than 10 points afterward.Senior quarterback Stephen Rivers went the distance, throwing the first two touchdown passes of his college career while going 15 of 21 for 197 yards and steering the Demons to 479 total yards, 347 in the first half while building a 31-14 lead.Junior running back De’Mard Llorens had his first 100-yard rushing total, gaining 105 on 21 carries including scores of 53 and 1 yards. Shakeir Ryan caught a 22-yard touchdown throw from Rivers while Zach White snagged a deflected 2-yarder, with the ball knocked away from intended receiver Ed Eagan.A pivotal play with 14:17 remaining put NSU in command. With second-and-goal at the NSU 2, and the Cardinals poised to cut the Demons’ 34-21 advantage in half, Harrington fumbled and Demons junior safety Adam Jones snatched the ball and raced 95 yards to make it 41-21.“All year long it’s felt like we haven’t gotten a break. Teams would fumble and the ball bounced right back into their hands, but tonight, we got a couple breaks,” said Thomas. “It feels like a ton of bricks off my shoulders, off our shoulders. These players, these coaches, they worked so hard the last two weeks and they came out and played like we can tonight.”Rivers went deep to Eagan on the game’s first play, a 39-yard connection, and three snaps later senior Daniel Taylor scampered 12 yards up the middle for a 7-0 lead just 2:17 into the contest. Llorens’ 53-yard run through the left side came at the 3:47 mark of the opening quarter to double the margin, and a 26-yard Chris Moore field goal 34 seconds into the second period made it 17-0.Harrington, who ran for a conference-record 347 yards in a win over Abilene Christian last week and came in averaging 166 yards per game, dashed 79 yards 13 seconds later to get the Cardinals on the board. He also ran for scores of 5, 2, 3 and 2 yards among his 36 carries.The Demons got Rivers’ two TD passes before halftime sandwiched around a Harrington score. Ryan’s catch came with 9:31 left in the half and White’s score was posted with 13 seconds showing, capping an impressive 68-yard, 8-play drive.Lamar opened the third quarter with a score but could not sustain its next two possessions, the latter halted by Jones’ school-record fumble return touchdown.“Our defense played great,” said Thomas. “Kade Harrington is that good. But we created some negative plays, got some big stops, and played aggressively, with confidence. We bounced back well.”Senior linebacker Jacob Merriman made 10 tackles while sophomore linebacker Lyn Clark had eight, including a sack, and posted two quarterback hurries. Junior safety Darius Poullard also had a sack against a Lamar squad that had allowed only one sack in its first five games, including a competitive loss at Baylor and a 49-46 win at then third-ranked FCS Sam Houston State.The Demons ran for a season-high 282 yards, with Chris Jones posting 89 on 10 carries and Taylor getting 69 on his 10 tries.“Proud of our offensive line. Those big guys had their best game tonight. We had a really good plan, and executed it,” said Thomas. “Stephen Rivers gave us something special running the offense, and it all clicked. Time after time, we did what we needed to do to win.”NSU will hit the road for the next two weeks, visiting unbeaten conference leader and old rival McNeese next Saturday night, then going to Nicholls on Halloween, before hosting Abilene Christian on Nov. 7.— Northwestern State Sports InformationTop Expat InsuranceExpat Living in Hong Kong without Health Insurance?Top Expat Insurance|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoOceandrawThe One And Only WD40 Trick Everyone Should KnowOceandraw|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Trick Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unlock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoezzin.com20 Breathtaking Places to See Before You Dieezzin.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndolast_img read more

Ojo’s goal earns victory for Fulham

first_imgFulham 1 Birmingham 0 Sheyi Ojo’s volley was enough to earn dominant Fulham victory against a Birmingham side who missed a second-half penalty.Ojo scored his third goal of the season on 14 minutes, converting a cross from the left from Neeskens Kebano after Tom Cairney’s pass had opened up space behind the City defence.The Whites wasted numerous chance to add to the on-loan Liverpool man’s goal and almost paid the price when Kevin McDonald turned blindly with a raised foot to make a clearance, bringing down the onrushing Emilio Nsue.AdChoices广告But City’s on-loan Chelsea attacker Jeremie Boga knocked the resulting spot-kick over the bar.The Whites should have made the game safe before Boga’s miss.Ryan Sessegnon shot wide from close range after latching onto a defence-splitting pass from McDonald. And only a fine reflex save on the line from former Whites keeper David Stockdale denied Kebano just before the interval.After the break, a good move down the right involving Cairney and Stefan Johansen opened up a decent chance for substitute Aboubakar Kamara, who fired just wide and, moments later, Johansen forced Stockdale into a fine save.Birmingham took an hour to cause Marcus Bettinelli any problems and even then the Fulham keeper did not have to make a save, as a Boga free-kick curled wide.It was the same with the penalty, which Boga lofted into the Putney End.The Whites were the ones who always looked the more likely scorers, but they spurned chances to wrap up victory, Ojo guilty of skying the best opening after good work by Sessegnon down the left flank.Fulham: Bettinelli; Fredericks, Kalas, Ream, Sessegnon; McDonald; Cairney, Norwood; Ojo [Djalo 90], Johansen [Fonte 79], Kebano [Kamara 45].

Anthony Joshua opens up on struggles with dating, life as a dad during lockdown and fighting Tyson Fury

first_imgANTHONY JOSHUA may be one of the globe’s biggest sporting stars, with a raft of titles and a legion of adoring fans – but true love is still proving tough to conquer.The world heavyweight boxing champion today opens up to The Sun about life in lockdown with his family — including becoming “super dad” to his four-year-old son, JJ.Anthony Joshua has opened up about his love life claiming that he hasn’t found anyone to call his girlfriend yetIn a world exclusive interview, the 30-year-old fighter also discusses his determination to knock out boxing rival Tyson Fury, his flirtatious quip to The Queen and how sport can help reunite Britain after the Covid-19 crisis.However, despite all of his accolades, Anthony admits there is one prize which remains as elusive as ever – finding love.AJ says: “I think you can date and still be a successful sportsman but it’s hard to find a balance and I would have to compromise — which I’ve not felt able to do.“My dad never gave me advice about much. But in terms of relationships what I have learnt and what I tell my son is, it would be nice to find a high school sweetheart and to grow together because as you get older you get set in your ways.The heavyweight champ has also revealed how he has become super-dad while in lockdown with his four-year-old son, JJ“For me to have a relationship now means I would have to compromise and change my ways and I don’t know how easy that would be for me to do.“So I do date but I don’t get to the stage where I actually put anyone into that position.“I don’t have a girlfriend and I haven’t had one for a while. But as I get older I do think it would be nice to have someone, someone to grow with as well — but I honestly haven’t found anyone.”Any future girlfriend would have to understand what it’s like to be famous, he believes.‘I NEED TO GO TO CELEBRITY PARTIES’He explains: “Maybe I need to get off the estate and start going to celebrity parties — maybe do something different.“I hope I will — and probably meeting someone else who understands fame would make sense. I would hope so. But it needs to be someone down to earth, family-orientated – someone who can call my mum their second mum.“It takes time to grow that and, as I said, now I am older I am stuck in my ways. As I get older it would be nice to bring someone into my world but it’s dependent on who and I just haven’t found someone yet.“Maybe we can go on a hunt. We have all the time now.”The 33-year-old says that he is eager to take on boxing rival Tyson FuryCredit: PA:Press AssociationWith boxing currently on hold, Anthony has spent months at home enjoying time with his family at their Watford home.But after initially embracing home-schooling his son, he admits he has struggled to keep up his efforts as the lockdown continues.He told how the youngster’s attention has gradually drifted away from his dad’s tuition and towards his favourite cartoons instead.AJ says: “I started off as super-dad and then that slowly went out the window and to be honest he’s watching way too much TV now.While in lockdown, Anthony has put his boxing on hold to enjoy time with his family in Watford“The only thing he wants to do is watch Paw Patrol and Ryan’s World – there’s no way you’d get him watching Joe Wicks.”AJ’s success in the ring means little to JJ and his modest dad is perfectly happy with that.He says: “At home he doesn’t really think of me as a famous boxer or anything like that. I’m not a superstar and he doesn’t think so either. He knows I fight but that’s all.“I always keep that stuff away from home. I’m not like that at home – and I’m not even like that when I go out, really.”The boxer reveals that he finds it hard to balance his professional and personal lifeSoon AJ’s home-schooling will come to an end, although he does not know when yet. The heavyweight says: “The next conversation is about him going back to school — although I’m not too sure if we’ll send my boy back to school just yet.” Sport is gradually preparing to return, with top-flight football resuming next month — and AJ believes it can help Britain get back on its feet.He says: “Things are heading in the right direction and as long as it’s safe I think sport could play a big part in helping Britain come out of this — it’s 100 per cent going to help lift people.“It’s great news about the Premier League and boxing will hopefully follow at some point.Anthony says he has always been driven and focused on getting better at fightingCredit: Getty Images – Getty“Sports in Britain, especially football, is part of our culture. It has to come back you know. It is part of our nation’s heritage.“Once it comes back there will be an uplift of energy in households. It is passed down through families. It is good for communities.”The whole of Britain wants to see him fight British rival Tyson Fury. AJ wants it, too, saying: “In my own mind I had mentally written off most of this year but, if I was to fight this year, it would probably be November or December.“It’s difficult at the moment knowing how you cover the costs, and whether you could charge people in the circumstances for pay per view.”‘YOU NEED DISCIPLINE’AJ has been determined to stay in shape despite being forced to train alone without his team around him.He has his own key to his local gym and he says the unusual silence there has actually helped him.AJ explains: “It’s my lifestyle. That’s what I’ve done all my life – instead of going to college, I went to the school of boxing. I learnt how to fight.“So I’m still doing my studying, I’m still doing my education but I’ve got a key to my local gym which I’m allowed to go in. You need discipline and that’s one thing I’ve got personally, I don’t need to be told or pushed – it’s in my character.The whole of Britain wants to see Anthony fight British rival Tyson FuryCredit: Reuters“I just hit the bags, skip and it’s the first time in my whole boxing career where I’ve been left alone.“Normally I’ve got someone in my ear, telling me what to do, how to do it and I’ve actually really enjoyed being on my own.

Mbappe and Henry would have another link if France wins cup

first_imgST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — Kylian Mbappe and Thierry Henry both attended France’s Clairefontaine academy before playing as left wingers at Monaco, and they both won French league titles as teenagers. Mbappe wants to replicate another one of Henry’s accomplishments — a World Cup title for France in his first tournament.Henry, 40, is France’s leading scorer with 51 goals, the 19-year-old Mbappe is Les Bleus’ new sensation, with three, matching Henry’s total from 1998 and 2006.If Mbappe scores again, France plays Uruguay in Friday’s quarterfinal , he would become the first Frenchman since 1958 to score four at a World Cup since Just Fontaine’s record 13 over six games in 1958 .Henry and Mbappe both share the electric pace Fontaine had, but with a far more rounded game than their illustrious predecessor.“I don’t really like to compare players from different generations, but they have a similar profile, with their speed and ability to beat players,” said France coach Didier Deschamps, captain of the 1998 champions. “I can only wish Kylian the same career as Thierry.”Deschamps said that after Mbappe’s debut in a qualifier at Luxembourg in March 2017. He already was hailing Mbappe’s maturity.“His biggest strength is his composure when he’s through on the goalkeeper,” Deschamps said. “That’s very rare at his age, and it’s why he’s so efficient.”Mbappe showed that in a 4-3 win against Argentina last Saturday , scoring two clinical second-half goals after earning a first-half penalty kick with an astonishing run from deep inside his own half. Mbappe stole the spotlight from five-time FIFA Player of the Year Lionel Messi, and he emerged as a candidate to join Neymar in the conversation for who is the world’s best player after Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo move on.Mbappe has played as a wide forward and as a central striker for both France and Paris Saint-Germain, joining from Monaco last year in a deal worth 180 million euros ($216 million). Playing alongside Neymar and Edinson Cavani in a star-studded attack, he helped PSG win all three domestic titles.Like Henry, Mbappe grew up in a Paris suburb: Mbappe in Bondy, Henry in Les Ulis. Mbappe has been active in the community and he says he will donate his World Cup earnings to a charity that organizes sports for children with disabilities.Mbappe scored six goals in his first 19 international games and Henry seven: three at the 1998 World Cup and two when France won the European Championship in 2000.Henry’s pro career was launched in 1994 by Monaco coach Arsene Wenger, who brought him to Arsenal from Italian side Juventus five years later. Henry scored at least 20 league goals in six consecutive seasons for Arsenal, and a club record 228 in all competitions for the Gunners.Wenger moved Henry to Monaco’s first team after Henry scored more than 40 goals the under-17 team in one year.“Henry already had a great attitude. He was already mature and didn’t need anyone to control him,” youth coach Paul Pietri told The Associated Press. “He crushed everyone with his physique, his strength. He could carry the attack all by himself, he could do everything.”A 76-year-old Corsican now in retirement after nearly 30 years on Monaco’s staff, Pietri recalled exactly when Henry’s “natural class” first stood out.“We went to a tournament in Italy, which we always did at the start of the year,” Pietri said. “We beat Lazio 5-3, with three goals from Henry. Then we drew 3-3 against AC Milan, with three goals from Henry. I told myself ‘This lad can play with the pros.’ Wenger took him.”But Pietri adds a note of caution when predicting Mbappe’s future.“What we need to see is if Mbappe lasts 15 years. You shouldn’t forget Henry is Arsenal’s leading scorer, the best they ever had,” Pietri said.___Follow Jerome Pugmire on Twitter at https://twitter.com/jeromepugmire___More AP World Cup coverage: https://apnews.com/tag/WorldCup In this Saturday, June 30, 2018 file photo, France’s Kylian Mbappe celebrates after scoring his side’s third goal during their round of 16 match against Argentina, at the 2018 soccer World Cup at the Kazan Arena in Kazan, Russia.

Selkirk College Saints Look to Set Tone for Post-Season

first_img“This is a strong league, and to be in a position to have home ice to start the playoffs is a goal we set out at the beginning of the season,” says Saints head coach Brent Heaven. “As a group, we know we can do better than we have of late. We have to trust the process and make sure we get back to playing a full 60 minutes, which will in turn bring our group success.”The Saints are 1-3 in their last four games which were all played on the road. On Friday night in Burnaby, SFU came away with a 4-1 victory that helped close the gap on the Saints. Needing a win on Saturday in Langley against Trinity Western, the Saints fell behind early and couldn’t recover in a 6-4 loss.“The weekend was difficult, we have been dealing with a lot of injuries. At times played very well and certainly had a chance to win against Trinity Western,” says Heaven. “There are small adjustments that need to be made, but I’m confident in the group we have in the dressing room. This group is committed to finish strong and head into the playoffs with momentum.”With Trinity Western University now sitting comfortably in first place, the Saints are focused on making sure that at least the best-of-three BCIHL semi-final is played at the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex. The Saints have two games remaining in the regular season and SFU has three.“Home ice advantage is vital for our team,” says Heaven. “We have the best fan support in the league and the players really feed off the energy in the arena, especially in the playoffs. We control our destiny and winning both remaining regular season games is what it will take.”Due to the Castlegar Rebels KIJHL playoff game in the evening, Saturday’s Selkirk College game will start at 4 p.m. The Selkirk College Saints return home on Saturday for a pivotal tilt with the Simon Fraser University Spartans that will go a long way in determining home-ice advantage in the British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) post-season.Coming off four straight road games, the Saints will be looking to rebound from a pair of disappointing losses against SFU and Trinity Western University this past weekend as the team aims to lock up second place in the regular season standings. The Saints are currently one point ahead of SFU who have won four straight to surge up the standings.last_img read more

Figo and Van Praag pull out of FIFA presidential race

first_imgBy Brian HomewoodFormer Portugal forward Luis Figo pulled out of the FIFA presidential election race on Thursday, hours after Dutchman Michael van Praag had also withdrawn.“My decision is made, I will not stand in what is being called an election for the FIFA presidency,” he said on his Facebook page.“After a personal reflection and sharing views with two other candidates in this process, I believe that what is going to happen on May 29 in Zurich is not a normal electoral act. And because it is not, don’t count on me.”His decision left Jordan’s Prince Ali Bin Al Hussein as the only challenger to incumbent Sepp Blatter for the FIFA election.“There has not been a single public debate about each candidate’s proposals,” said the 42-year-old Figo in announcing his decision.“Does anyone think it’s normal that an election for one of the most relevant organisations on the planet can go ahead without a public debate?”“Does anyone think it’s normal that one of the candidates doesn’t even bother to present an election manifesto that can be voted on May 29,” he said referring to Blatter.“Shouldn’t it be mandatory to present such a manifesto so that federation presidents know what they’re voting for?“This electoral process is anything but an election.“This (election) process is a plebiscite for the delivery of absolute power to one man – something I refuse to go along with.“I do not fear the ballot box, but I will not go along with nor will I give my consent to a process which will end on May 29 and from which football will not emerge the winner.”He added: “I have witnessed consecutive incidents, all over the world, that should shame anyone who desires football to be free, clean and democratic.“I have seen with my own eyes federation presidents who, after one day comparing FIFA leaders to the devil, then go on stage and compare those same people with Jesus Christ.“Nobody told me about this. I saw it with my own eyes.”last_img read more
