The point was enough to secure top-flight survival for West Ham who moved up to 15th place on 38 points — four points above 18th-placed Watford.United are in third place on 63 points, Chelsea are fourth, also on 63 points ahead of their game at champions Liverpool later on Wednesday.Leicester are fifth on 62 points.After the disappointment of their 3-1 FA Cup semi-final defeat to Chelsea at Wembley on Sunday, Solskjaer was hoping for a positive reaction from his team but United looked tired and uninspired in what was a poor performance.David Moyes’s side sat deep and crowded the centre of the field and United struggled to create openings from wide and lacked sharpness and creativity. West Ham got in front when Paul Pogba raised his hands to protect his face from a long-range Declan Rice effort, giving referee Paul Tierney an easy decision to award the spot kick.United made a bright start after the break and once again it was their 18-year-old talent Greenwood who provided the inspiration, his 17th goal in all competitions coming with a sweet drive after a clever exchange of passes with Anthony Martial.Solskjaer’s goal this season has been to return to the Champions League and while his team are stumbling towards the finish line, they will succeed in that aim if they can avoid defeat on Sunday at Leicester.Tags: Champions LeagueManchester UnitedMichail AntonioOle Gunnar SolskjaerWest Ham United read more

After failing in its attempt at a third-straight victory, the USC men’s golf team returns to action at the Stanford Intercollegiate today hungry for a win. The squad finished 10th among tough competition earlier this month at the Southern Highland Collegiate Masters in Las Vegas, where No. 1 California claimed an easy victory, defeating second-place Alabama by 13 strokes. Stanford’s Patrick Rodgers took the individual championship after defeating New Mexico’s James Erkenbeck and Alabama’s Cory Whitsett in a playoff.Senior Sam Smith’s 3-over 219 led the No. 9 Trojans, but his tie for 16th could not match the excellent play of the Golden Bears, who placed four players in the top 11. Fortunately, three teams that finished ahead of USC in Las Vegas are ranked in the top five nationally, while all teams, except host UNLV, ranked in the top 25.This week’s tournament will provide an excellent opportunity to get back on track after a two-week hiatus. None of the nation’s top-five teams, of which three are Pac-12 rivals, have entered, seemingly opening the door for a USC victory if the team can get by the host Cardinal, ranked No. 10 in the nation. USC head coach Chris Zambri is optimistic about the team’s chances.“We are excited to get up to Palo Alto,” Zambri said. “We love that golf course, as it fits our style of play really well.”This was apparent in 2012, when the Trojans finished a close second behind Oregon in the tournament and ahead of Stanford, UCLA and Washington. Zambri, now in his seventh year at the helm of the program, knows the importance of the last few tournaments before Pac-12 playoffs and NCAA regionals and will not overlook this event.“This is the time of year we need to be at our best,” Zambri said. “These are the most important two months of the season.”The Trojans have shown great potential at several points this season, picking up consecutive team victories in late February at the Prestige Tournament and North Ranch Intercollegiate. It was also at North Ranch that freshman Yi Keun Chang picked up the team’s only individual victory of the season.The Trojans will need continued brilliance from Chang, consistent play from sophomore Anthony Paolucci and junior Ramsey Sahyoun and leadership from senior Sam Smith to finish the season strong. Coach Zambri has faith that his players will be able to do just that.“[Assistant Coach John] Wurzer and I both think the guys are ready to step up,” Zambri said. “The break came at a perfect time for us. Our guys got to slow down and recharge a bit.”With the ultra-competitive Pac-12 championships only a month away, the team needs to rediscover its late-February form. After this week’s tournament, the Trojans will return to Northern California for the Western Intercollegiate in Santa Cruz, Calif. in mid-April. Later in the month, the squad will battle for first place in the nation’s toughest conference at Los Angeles Country Club. Last year’s third-place result at Pac-12 championships shows that the team has what it takes to meet the challenge.“I’m really excited,” Paolucci said. “I know we all are ready to test the best teams in the country.” read more
Published on January 24, 2017 at 11:55 pm Contact Matt: firstname.lastname@example.org | @matt_schneidman The narrative has been beaten to death, so much so that Jim Boeheim has run dry of reasons why Syracuse has been abysmal away from home and far superior on the court named after him.The one constant resurfacing from the 41st-year head coach’s mouth that he’s able to pinpoint is his four “first-year players” failing to mesh as expected. Whether Boeheim’s preseason expectations were fair or not, the foursome of Andrew White, Tyus Battle, Taurean Thompson and John Gillon have struggled to lift Syracuse from the crater it has spiraled into after a record-worst start.With 10:23 left in Tuesday night’s game against Wake Forest and the Demon Deacons leading by eight, that narrative seemed to flip on its head. The crater would sink deeper and Syracuse would be one game closer to .500 with a team ranked in the Top 10 up next.But sure enough, it was timely shots from each of those four — and the fifth, a player by the name of Tyler Lydon – that defied the trends of Syracuse allowing deficits to balloon late propelled SU (12-9, 4-4 Atlantic Coast) to an 81-76 win over Wake Forest (12-8, 3-5) in its first conference game decided by single digits. This win, even if it comes against a mediocre Demon Deacons team in the building that Syracuse has earned all it wins, is something the Orange can hang its hat on — for now at least.“We’re growing as a team,” Battle said. “It was a great comeback.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat growth, however small when all 40 minutes were done, certainly wasn’t evident in a first half that saw Wake Forest outrebound Syracuse by 10 and John Collins fall one rebound shy of a double-double with the visitors up three.Before Tuesday, the last time there had been a second-half lead change in a Syracuse game was Dec. 17 against Georgetown. But this game wasn’t nearly like the others, as Gillon’s nifty lefty lay-in gave Syracuse a 34-32 lead in a precursor to what would be a back-and-forth, chaotic second half.MORE COVERAGE What we learned from Syracuse’s 81-76 win over Wake ForestThe Final Word: Beat writers discuss Syracuse’s 81-76 win over Wake ForestAndrew White’s season-high 27 points lifts Syracuse to 81-76 victory over Wake ForestGraphical breakdown of Syracuse men’s basketball’s 81-76 win over Wake Forest Facebook Twitter Google+ First a Wake Forest eight-point lead. Then a Syracuse six-point lead. Then a 7-0 run capped off by a Mitchell Wilbekin 3-pointer that followed two Thompson missed free throws. Only three Syracuse games this season had been decided by single digits, the loss against Connecticut, the win against North Florida and the loss against Georgetown.A fourth was about to be added, and the same team whose inexperience with the Syracuse way has plagued it finally rose to the challenge.“Tyus making some plays when we needed it … Drew was steady the whole game, had a big scoring night … Taurean finishing those plays on the back end,” Gillon said. “All those put together didn’t put too much pressure on one person to make a play.”Battle’s acrobatic and-1, followed by Thompson’s and-1 of his own gave Syracuse its biggest cushion of the night with 4:25 left.With the game tied at 68, Syracuse swung the ball around like clockwork, so unlike the team that registered only eight assists three days prior in a blowout loss to Notre Dame. The play ended with a Gillon kickout to White, who drilled a 3-pointer in front of a now-raucous SU bench, before the often-subdued fifth-year senior clenched his left fist and let out a scream. For the final 1:23, Syracuse held on.“I thought the last play that we made, everybody touched the ball,” Boeheim said. “It was just perfect ball movement.”Nothing about this season has been perfect for Syracuse. Far from it, in fact.This one wasn’t close to perfect either, but Syracuse found a way in its first close game of a daunting ACC slate. And with the way this season has been going, the Orange will take a win any way it can.“We haven’t been in close game and when you get in one for the first time, it’s not always that easy,” Boeheim said. “They made really good plays, really good plays when they had do.” Comments read more

9 May 2017 Golf to tee off at Special Olympics GB national games Golfers with learning disabilities will be among the competitors in the Special Olympics GB national games this summer, with the support of England Golf and The R&A. They will be among 2600 athletes with intellectual disabilities who will gather in Sheffield in August for four days of sports competition, supported by 800 coaches, 9000 volunteers and over 6000 family members and friends. The golf programme, which is being supported by The R&A, will take place at Rother Valley Golf Club and is the culmination of three years of work between England Golf and Special Olympics GB to create more opportunities for golfers with intellectual impairments. In that time, the number of golfers registered with Special Olympics GB has risen from 150 to over 430 and it is set to grow further in 2017. Golf will be offered through the Special Olympics GB network in Tyne and Wear, Suffolk, York and, to create a legacy from the national games, in Rotherham. It is hoped these projects will introduce another 300 people to golf. Among the golfers at the national games will be Yorkshire’s Mark Rhodes (pictured), the winner of the 2016 Bradford Disability Sports Personality Award. Mark, a member at Rawdon Golf Club, will be part of the Bradford Disability Sport and Leisure athletic squad taking part in Sheffield next August. He claimed his place when he won a nine-hole qualifier at Bromsgrove Golf Centre featuring golfers from across the country and Wales. His mum, Janet said: “Mark has worked hard to learn and practise his golf. I am so proud of him and hope his success encourages other people with disabilities to try the sport.” Jamie Blair, England Golf Disability Manager, commented: “It is really positive to see The R&A invest in these games and support GB athletes. “Golf has benefited many disabled people and we hope these games will encourage many more, especially those with an intellectual impairment to try the sport and enjoy all it has to offer.” Click here for more information on the Special Olympic GB national games, which take place from August 7-12. read more
The first captain of the team also spoke of the degree of identification with colors. “The people of the earth have less problems to get involved in the philosophy of the entity. The quarry is important. Now there are colleagues who feel the club as much or more than I do. The team’s objective is for there to be a relationship of trust because that is good for the institution and for us, “he said.Manu He is from Vitoria (he went to Mendizorroza with his family when he was a child) but from the quarry of the San Viator it went directly to Zubieta and was formed in the lower categories of the Real society. Martín AgirregabiriaWithout going any further, he has become a footballer at the Ibaia facilities. Then continuity must be found so that cases do not pass in the base such as those of Einar, Vesga, Calls or Alday, who walked away from Vitoria for various reasons. “The working method has to be very strict, marking the red lines and the new members have to adapt to it when they arrive. Sometimes you can be flexible with some players but it is clear that working as a team gives you much better results than if you do it individually, “he said. Regarding leadership, he commented that “it is good to have four or five references so that, together, we are able to reach all members. You have to have the confidence of the team but it seems to me a good idea that this leadership is distributed.

Due to age and the characteristics that all of them have within the team. 19 Manu pointed out that “Alavés’ strength resides in the group and I think that this is a method that can be exported to other clubs. Here neither the effort nor the attitude is negotiable and you have to go to train every day with a good face. A few years ago I was very strict with the discipline but now I have learned to relativize the results in the short term. Here there is maximum respect for all colleagues and, in some cases, you have to have a left hand with some footballers because the ultimate goal is to integrate them “.

Irving had asked for a trade to a team where he wouldn’t have second-billing.Thomas said he is excited about playing with James, a four-time MVP, and Kevin Love, a former AAU teammate .“I’mma just say this here, point-blank, to get it over with — and then you can go ahead and post it on whatever bulletin boards you want to: You are not going to want to mess with the Cavs this year,” he said.“Me on the Cavs is a match made in heaven.

It’s just sad,” he said. “But I didn’t come to Cleveland to lose.”Among the messages Thomas received after the trade was one from Patriots quarterback Tom Brady wishing him luck and telling him “You’re gonna do great.” That was bittersweet, Thomas said: He had hoped to build a Brady-like career as an unheralded draft pick who went on to become an all-time Boston great.“In my mind, I wanted to be the Celtics version of Brady and (Red Sox slugger David) Ortiz,” he wrote. “So when I got that text from Tom, you know, there was part of me that felt a little down.“But then I thought about the text some more,” he wrote. “Tom Brady isn’t sending a text like that to guys who played in Boston for only two and a half years — unless they did something very special. So maybe, I don’t know … maybe that’s something to be proud of. And maybe, my time here . even if, in the end, I guess it wasn’t quite what I’d dreamed it would be — maybe it still meant something to some people.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Break new ground View comments read more
