Bristol Flyers Women 2017/18 season review

Posted on

first_imgAfter an uncertain start to the season itself, which saw them win their first game away to Lancashire but drop their home opener to the Reading Rockets, the offensive efforts of both Maialen Ansoain Zilbeti and Liisa Juul led the Flyers to four wins in a row. This streak included a come-from-behind win against defending champions Team Solent Kestrels, and a 21-point victory over eventual champions Anglia Ruskin University, in which Juul scored 28 points. In her first season as captain of the team, Fiona Fox was particularly pleased to see the team doing so well early on: “I felt honoured when asked to be Flyers captain, though obviously it was quite daunting and there are a lot of responsibilities that come with it, but it was a great feeling seeing us all come together, playing well as a team and executing the game plan.”last_img read more

Eliasson anticipating a great year

Posted on

first_imgAnd so he should after netting two well-taken goals against Cheltenham Town in Tuesday night’s (July 10th) pre-season friendly.Both of the winger’s goals came in the first half as he helped City to a 4-2 win. He first rifled in a back-post volley before timing a run to perfection and chipping the ball over the onrushing Cheltenham keeper.The team – new signings and youngsters included – look assured and spirits are naturally high, just weeks before the start of the new season.Speaking after Tuesday’s ‘Johnson Cup’ victory, Eliasson said: “I thought it was a great game, the team played really well and I scored two goals as well so I am happy.”‘WORKING HARD TO GIVE MYSELF A CHANCE'”I feel great,” he added. “I’ve been working really hard this summer to come back fit and to give myself the best opportunities for the season. I feel in good shape but it is still early and we have a couple more weeks before we start the season but I feel good.”There’s an atmosphere in the camp which is certainly being reflected on the pitch too, Eliasson said.He continued: “We have a great group, all the news lads have settled in quickly too. We’re all helping each other and I think this will be a great year for everyone.”BACK TO THE GATECity host Shrewsbury Town on Saturday, July 14th (1pm kick-off) – their first match of pre-season at Ashton Gate.Eliasson said: “It’s been a couple of months [since we last played at home] so hopefully we will have a good game on Saturday. We hope to see a lot of fans turning up as well.”CITY V SHREWSBURY TOWN – TICKETSlast_img read more

UK baseball takes aim at NCAA bid in SEC tourney

first_imgUK third baseman Thomas Bernal is congratulated after scoring UK's first run during the University of Louisville vs. University of Kentucky baseball game at Cliff Hagan Stadium in Lexington on Wednesday. May 6, 2015UK third baseman Thomas Bernal is congratulated after scoring UK’s first run during the University of Louisville vs. University of Kentucky baseball game at Cliff Hagan Stadium in Lexington on Wednesday. May 6, 2015LEXINGTON, Ky. – Kentucky baseball finds itself in an interesting position heading into the Southeastern Conference Tournament this week, having delivered some of the most impressive wins in the league yet forced to participate in a play-in game against Auburn for a spot in the double-elimination field.Odder still (and more importantly), despite seven wins against top-25 teams and road series victories over No. 1 LSU and No. 6 Florida, the Wildcats (30-24, 14-15 SEC) remain very much on the NCAA Tournament bubble as they try to earn their third invitation in four years.With a body of work D1Baseball.com analyst Aaron Fitt calls “quirky,” thanks to some head-scratching losses, Kentucky ranks just 56th in the RPI and might have some work left to extend its season into next week.“When you look at an SEC team with an RPI in the mid-50s, it usually doesn’t fare very well on selection day,” Fitt said. “But then when you get to 14 wins in conference, it usually does bode fairly well.”Coach Gary Henderson has done the math and, as his eighth-seeded team prepares to face the ninth-seeded Tigers (34-22, 13-17) at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in Hoover, Ala., in a game that will be televised on the SEC Network, he’s fairly certain of one thing.[tweet https://twitter.com/KyleTucker_CJ/status/600328154138411008%5D“We need to keep winning,” he said.That’s because for all the good, which included a critical series win at Missouri to end the regular season, the Cats were also swept by a struggling South Carolina team and in one rough stretch lost 5 of 7 home games against Vanderbilt, Louisville and Georgia.The Bulldogs had lost 9 of 11 before stealing a series in Lexington.“That was a blow” to UK’s NCAA hopes, Fitt said. “I think if they had managed to win that one, maybe they’re sitting pretty right now. But you lose that series and now you’re in a spot where you really need a couple of wins to secure this thing. I don’t think they can afford to go to Hoover and go one-and-done. Even if they win one game, I don’t know if that’s enough. It might be, but it’ll be close.”Win Tuesday and it’s on to a date with LSU, the nation’s top team and the league’s regular-season champion. If anyone can pull that upset, though, it’s Kentucky. The Cats took 2 of 3 in Baton Rouge, handing the Tigers their only series loss of the season.“I don’t know that any team in the country has had two weekends more impressive than winning a series at LSU and at Florida,” Fitt said. “That speaks pretty loud.”Kentucky tied a school record by winning three SEC road series and nearly managed a .500 record away from home in league play – impressive considering the conference has four top-10 teams in the polls.[tweet https://twitter.com/KyleTucker_CJ/status/600327941332017152%5D“Any time you win a series on the road in our league, especially against somebody in the upper part of it, I think you get confidence,” Henderson said. “We’re a group that’s gotten better as the season progressed. I’ve said it all year and I told you in February: Our guys like to play. And they really do. We’ve got a spirit about us that’s fun to be around.”It also helps to have first-team All-SEC second baseman JaVon Shelby, second-team All-SEC centerfielder Kyle Barrett and Freshman All-SEC first baseman Evan White, plus what Henderson calls “three solid starters” on the mound in Zack Brown (6-5, 3.31 ERA), Dustin Beggs (7-4, 3.65) and Kyle Cody (4-4, 4.91).Henderson, whose specialty is pitchers, said the sophomore Brown has “a couple more steps that he’s going to take before he leaves Kentucky and he’ll end up being a guy that everybody knows.” Cody, a 6-foot-7 junior with a great arm but spotty consistency, posted a 1.78 ERA over his final three regular-season starts, recording 21 strikeouts and allowing just 16 hits in 20 2/3 innings.“He has a different gene pool than most kids playing college baseball,” Henderson said. “He’s a talented kid that has figured out how to keep the ball down and relax while he’s competing, and he’s in a really good spot right now.”Now the Wildcats just hope they end up in a positive place, too, by the end of this week.Kyle Tucker can be reached at (502) 582-4361.

Anderson hit a free throw with 2.4 seconds left to send it into overtime tied at 58. At Byrd, Haughton got down early but stayed within striking distance most of the game. The Lady Bucs trailed 28-25 going into the fourth quarter. McKnight, Hardy and Madison Collins all fouled out. Williams finished with four fouls as did Anderson. The Benton Lady Tigers rallied from a 20-point halftime deficit to defeat the Parkway Lady Panthers 65-62 in overtime in a District 1-5A game Tuesday night at Benton. The teams combined for 51 free throws. Parkway was 14 of 24, and Benton was 13 of 27. Trailing by one at the half, the Lady Vikings came out strong in the third quarter. Williams and Russell each had one basket for Parkway. Parkway welcomed back star freshman guard Mikaylah Williams on Tuesday. She hadn’t played since suffering a knee injury during warmups before a game against Ouachita Parish on Dec. 13 in the Benton tournament. In the finals of the “Doc” Edwards Invitational on Dec. 30, Benton erased an 11-point deficit in the second half against Red River. Kayla Hampton scored 11 of her 17 points and Airline outscored Natchitoches Central 22-13 to take the nine-point advantage into the fourth. Makaila Antwine made Benton’s only basket in overtime. Anderson hit four free throws and Anna Robins had one. Nia Hardison, who led the Lady Chiefs with 25 points, scored eight in the final period. J’unti Franklin, who finished with 22, added seven. Chambers finished with 28 points before fouling out. All but two of those came in the second half. Anderson tallied 25, including 18 in the second half and overtime. Harris added nine. Airline’s three district losses have been by a combined 10 points. At Airline, the Lady Vikings led 49-40 after three quarters but managed just seven in the fourth as the Lady Chiefs rallied for the win. Meanwhile, Airline struggled at the line, making just one of five free throws down the stretch. McKnight led Parkway with 22 points, 11 in each half. Williams finished with 18 and Hardy had 11. Benton is no stranger to comebacks. In their first district game, the Lady Tigers were down by three against Airline in the fourth quarter before rallying to win. Benton (15-3, 3-0) and Captain Shreve (11-5, 3-0) are tied for first. Southwood (12-3, 2-1) and Natchitoches Central (8-7, 2-1) are tied for second. They are followed by Byrd (13-6, 1-2), Parkway (15-4, 1-2), Airline (12-9, 0-3) and Haughton (9-7, 0-3). In other 1-5A games, Airline fell to Natchitoches Central 59-56 at Airline and Haughton lost to Byrd 45-39 at Byrd. Defending champion Captain Shreve defeated Southwood 54-32 at Southwood. The final quarter had plenty of suspense. Could Benton rally or would Parkway hold on? McKnight scored seven and Williams six in the second. Meanwhile, Benton continued to have issues offensively and added just seven points. The Lady Panthers led 34-14 at the break. As she has often done in her career, Chambers came up big down the stretch. She scored 17 of the Lady Tigers’ 26 fourth-quarter points. Anderson scored six and Alisa Harris two. Kori Rice added 12 points for Airline and Ashanti Bratten had 10.last_img read more

Badihagwa Technical Secondary School gets refurbished basketball court

Posted on

first_imgBY KEVIN TEME Fitness in sports plays a very important role in students’ lives. KPMG audit partner Herbert Maguma said this during the official announcement of the partnership between KPMG and Badihagwa Technical Secondary School today. While officially presenting some refurbished basketball courts structures to Badihagwa Technical Secondary School, he said, “We are accountants. We are auditors but one of the important aspects of what we do is we partner with community organisations and try to make a difference in whatever small way we can.” “This is another step in our partnership with Badihagwa. I know fitness in sports play a very important role in the student’s life. I, myself love sports but it does not show now,” Maguma said with a smile on his face. “I used to play basketball and represent my province so it’s an activity that I know brings together a team, bring together like minded individual and you know a healthy mind, a healthy body is a healthy student as well when you go into the classroom. So health and well being is the key focus of what we promote at KPMG,” Maguma said. He said his company started in 1966 and is a professional services firm with global reach, with a deep expertise in audit and assurance, tax and advisory. Maguma added: “One of the things which we’ve committed to doing things is supporting education in PNG, and Badihagwa School is very close to our hearts.” “You know we’ve got some of our employees in KPMG who have been here at Badihagwa. We’ve got some of our employees as well who live around this place so it’s a school close in proximity to our office and it’s a school that we want to support in various ways,” Maguma said. This is not the first time that KPMG has come to Badihagwa. Earlier this year KPMG donated some furniture for the classrooms and the teachers meeting rooms as well as donating Trukai Fun Run T shirts for the students and staff to participate in the annual Trukai Fun Run. Maguma thanked the Badihagwa community and the school principal for inviting KPMG and they hope to continue the partnership for a long time. “This is just a small token of our appreciation and us as an organisation we are excited to continue to work with you. We are happy to give back to the community,” Maguma said. Meanwhile school principal Maru Bala thanks KPMG for the timely gesture which will go a long way. “We are thankful for the timely gesture however we hope that this venue can be built into a multi sports stadium depending on what KPMG can offer,” the school principal said. Bala said Badihagwa has been struggling in terms of development in the school however for KPMG to come on board to support the school in their own ways was encouraging and he thanked KPMG and their staff for the support. Bala said in building multi sports complex, the school can also use the building to organise meetings and other things apart from hosting basketball. “Badihagwa as you know have set history in sports like our golden girl Dika Toua who once attended this school and we are happy to partner with KPMG and we thank you for the kind gesture given,” Bala said. Maguma in responding to the principal said, “I know Mr Bala have already put the seeds in our head but turning this place into a multipurpose facility so you know those are things we will be going with or take away with so on behalf of KPMG Nippon Paint, this was a joint initiative between the two companies and we now present this basketball court to you and I am sure Mr Ikupa Ovia (Sports head teacher) and your students to make good use of the court.” “On behalf of KPMG and Nippon we just want to say thank you,” Maguma said.last_img read more

Leicester City transfer hyped up in Portugal as 56.4% of fans…

Posted on

first_imgIf Adrien Silva wanted to create a big rumour when saying he’d like to return to his former club Sporting, he’s done it pretty well. Following the coverage of his quotes, Lisbon newspaper Record now comes up with a big article saying what the Lions have to do to sign the Leicester City player in the summer.They say the main concern is about the number of midfielders Sporting have in the squad. It’s claimed the club currently own 10 players for the position, and would need to get rid of a few of them before signing another one.And it doesn’t really look like Record are even considering the possibility of the Lisbon side signing Adrien Silva on a permanent deal.They say that for the operation to be possible, the player only needs to accept a big pay cut, as the Lions can’t afford the €4.6m gross he makes at Leicester City.Embed from Getty ImagesTo hype up the possible transfer, Record consulted three pundits to comment on it. They’ve also made a poll on their website asking Sporting fans if the club should spend on bringing Adrien Silva back. There were 56.4% saying yes to the signing, while 43.6% were going against it.Considering that Adrien used to be Sporting’s captain, this approval rate is quite lower than we expected.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Kenya bars athletes from global travel over coronavirus worries

Posted on

first_imgNAIROBI (Reuters) – Kenya’s athletics authority said yesterday it had barred its athletes from travelling to international events due to concerns over the coronavirus outbreak. The announcement could affect some high-profile races over the next few weeks, including the highly-anticipated showdown at the London Marathon between Eliud Kipchoge and Kenenisa Bekele, the only men to go under two hours, two minutes for the distance. The race is scheduled for April 26.More than 126,000 people have been infected globally by the virus and more than 4,600 have died, according to a Reuters tally based on official announcements.The East African nation, which has not had a confirmed case of the virus, boasts some of the world’s top athletes, who regularly win medals at premier competitions in Europe, Asia and North America. “Following a directive from the Government of Kenya and due to the global outbreak of the COVID-19 virus, Athletics Kenya has suspended all clearance and travel to international events for athletes,” Athletics Kenya said in a statement.“In a bid to safeguard the athletes and consequently the country from the virus, we urge all athletes to cancel travel arrangements for the next one month pending further communication.”Bernard Ouma, who coaches 1,500m world champion Timothy Cheruiyot, told Reuters yesterday: “Collectively we are taking precautions just as the country is taking precautions. “The risk of importation is what we are trying to avoid. So whatever measures are being taken by the authorities we will abide with them.“At the end of the day it’s about health … if by travelling you will get sick, then you avoid travelling.”Kenyan half marathon world record holder Geoffrey Kamworor told Reuters that the situation was a crisis. “It’s really a bad thing and we have to bear with the situation and we give it time,” he said, when asked about the outbreak and its potential impact on the Olympics.A host of sporting events around the world have been cancelled or postponed as countries try to contain the spread of the virus by discouraging mass gatherings.There are growing concerns that the outbreak may impact this summer’s Tokyo Olympics, though organisers say they are pressing ahead with the schedule. Late on Wednesday, the National Basketball Association (NBA) said it was suspending the season until further notice after a Utah Jazz player tested positive for the coronavirus. The pandemic has disrupted other sporting events in North America while soccer matches in Europe have also been hit hard, with many high-profile fixtures taking place in empty stadiums.last_img read more
