Etebo’s Getafe Champions League charge falters with Espanyol draw

first_img Getafe have now won just once in their last six games. “You have to say it is a slip-up,” said Getafe goalkeeper David Soria afterwards. “We were with an extra player for a long time and perhaps a little bit of anxiety creeps in when you have an extra man. You rush your chances and maybe that played a part. It’s true, we’re not on a good run.” Ogenekaro Etebo’s Getafe dropped more points in the race for Champions League qualification on Tuesday after they failed to break down struggling Espanyol despite their opponents playing most of the 0-0 draw with 10 men. Espanyol battled to a well-deserved goalless draw at Getafe The stalemate represents a missed opportunity for Jose Bordalas’ side and they could even have lost to Espanyol, who are building momentum after returning from the three-month suspension due to the coronavirus pandemic. Getafe stay fifth, level on points with fourth-placed Real Sociedad, who will play their game in hand away at Alaves on Thursday. Getafe could also be overtaken if Atletico Madrid win on Wednesday against Osasuna. Espanyol move to within two points of safety and after resuming with a 2-0 victory over Alaves on Saturday, their point against a top-four hopeful will be welcome. They will particularly satisfied given their defender Bernardo Espinosa was sent off in the 16th minute for throwing his hand into the face of Damian Suarez. Espanyol coach Abelardo Fernandez hurled a bottle down in frustration but his team rallied and were never really made to feel uncomfortable by Getafe, who managed only four shots on target. Their best chance came in stoppage time but Espanyol’s goalkeeper Diego Lopez made an excellent double save, denying Angel Rodriguez’s header and then the follow-up from Marc Cucurella.

Mannus excited by Euro campaign

first_imgSt Johnstone goalkeeper Alan Mannus is dreaming of a place at Euro 2016 but fears he will be left on the bench if Northern Ireland do qualify. “To be honest, I don’t think I’m close to really getting that number one spot.” Sitting on the sidelines may have been a frustration for the 32-year-old but it did allow him to pick the brains of international team-mates Sammy Clingan and Josh Magennis about Saints’ next opponents Ross County. The Perth side host Jim McIntyre’s Scottish Premiership basement boys on Saturday knowing that defeat would leave them just three points off the bottom. Mannus said: “County are quite a different team now from when we played them at the start of the season. When I was away with the national squad a couple of the Kilmarnock lads where talking about them. “They played them in their last match before leaving and lost 3-0 at home. The Killie boys admitted they were poor but said County were better than they had been previously. “They have a new manager in and that can help. But to beat Killie 3-0 away was unbelievable. Any team in the league would be happy with that, so it shows how dangerous they can be now. We will need to be ready for them.” Michael O’Neill’s side’s incredible start saw them take maximum points from their first three games before Romania claimed top spot in Group F with a 2-0 win last week. With potentially three teams to go on to the finals in France, Mannus is still hopeful the men in green could book their spot. Press Association However, with former Manchester United and Rangers stopper Roy Carroll the nation’s current number one, the McDiarmid Park keeper admits he may have to accept a back-up role. He told Press Association Sport: “The manager was saying after the games last month not to get carried away because there is still a long way to go. “For us to even be challenging for a place at the Euros would be some achievement. But there is some level of expectation back home because of the start we have made. “The closest we have come in recent times is finishing third about 10 years ago. But to actually qualify would be incredible. “But I don’t really know if I am close to taking the jersey back from Roy. I thought I was close to claiming the place towards the end of last season when I started a friendly in Cyprus. “Roy was at Olympiacos at that point and was third choice, so the manager told me I was starting. “But I couldn’t make the two friendlies we had in South America after that during the summer and then Roy got himself a club with Notts County. “He has been doing really well for both his club and Northern Ireland, so I think it would take him to do really badly for either me or Michael McGovern to get another chance. last_img read more

WG hockey tops Baldwinsville; Syracuse wins twice

first_img Tags: ice hockeySyracuseWest Genesee Should the West Genesee ice hockey team return to the top of the Section III Division I ranks after a three-year absence, it will look at the final minutes of last Tuesday’s game at Baldwinsville as a turning point.Just when it looked like the two long-time rivals were on the brink of another overtime decision, the Wildcats put together a clutch scoring play, which led to a 3-1 victory.No matter the records or the stakes, every game between WG and B’ville is an intense, physical affair, and more often than not produces a memorable conclusion.So it was again when the two rivals gathered for their lone regular-season meeting at Lysander Arena, the Wildcats trying to stay just behind Syracuse in the Division I standing and the Bees looking to stay in the race, too.Having routed Cazenovia 8-1 in its last outing Jan. 31, B’ville had some confidence, and it played a fine all-around first period, keeping the Wildcats off the board and taking a 1-0 lead with Luke Hoskin’s backhand shot.They stayed that way until Joe McLaughlin tied it in the second period for WG on a goal assisted by Anthony Felix and Jeremy Keyes. Deep into the third period, it remained 1-1.But with two minutes left in regulation, Wildcats captain Billy Fisher broke free and put one past Brad O’Neill, which proved the game-winner as WG tacked on an empty-net goal by Andrew Schneid in the final minute.Fisher and McLaughlin both assisted on goals, as did James Schneid and Jake Kopek. David Myers would stop 21 of B’ville’s 22 shots.Now the Wildcats hoped to turn its attention to Senior Night Friday at Shove Park, where WG would take on Ontario Bay, but it got snowed out and would get made up Tuesday night.As for Syracuse, the same weather that pushed back the WG game with Ontario Bay also moved back its trip north for games on the weekend against Massena and Potsdam.The Massena game had particular drama. Trailing 4-3 late in the third period, the Cougars tied it with an extra attacker on Ryan Durand’s goal, and then had Kaleb Benedict score 30 seconds later for the game-winner in a 5-4 victory.For the game, Benedict had two goals and two assists, with Stephan Matro also scoring twice and earning three assists as Nelson Jones also got an assist.Meeting Potsdam a day later, Syracuse didn’t need last-minute heroics, prevailing 3-1 over the Sandstoners to improve its overall record to 12-4-2, the exact same record of WG.A pair of first-period goals held up, the Cougars adding to its margin in the final period as Matro, Jones and Ethan Petty found the net, with Benedict getting two assists. Ryan Durand and Nick Richards also had assist.Once back home, Syracuse would have its own game with Baldwinsville on Wednesday. That, along with a game against Cicero-North Syracuse two nights earlier, would make it four games in five days and help determine if the Cougars won the regular-season league title and the top seed for the Section III playoffs.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

USC senior creates sustainable, reusable party cups

first_img“[That fact] was a huge shock to me because I had always assumed they were, even as someone who’s hyper-aware of their plastic usage,” Armstrong said. “So we’ll go through four or five cups a night, just not really thinking about it. Learning that fact, coupled with seeing all the waste [at Greek Row] everyday, just made me have to do something about it.”  He also added how transitioning to the use of sustainable cups is important for college culture.  Whenever senior Daphne Armstrong visited Greek Row after a weekend full of parties, she always thought about the thousands of plastic red Solo cups littered on the ground that would end up in landfills. In the future, Armstrong hopes to expand her company to other college campuses and added that she would like to create reusable cups in different colors depending on a college’s colors.  William Koch, a customer and senior majoring in international relations, said he admires the company’s goal to push sustainability on campuses.  “I like SUPCUPs because they look like a regular red Solo cup,” Koch said. “You know you’re not losing anything out there … you can still be sustainable while doing the same things that you would with a regular solo cup.”  She then decided to take courses on climate change, where she first learned of the environmental impacts of plastic and that party cups were not recyclable.  “I’ve been meeting Daphne for a while,” Bottom said. “It started off as an interesting idea that she had, mostly because she wanted to figure out a way to improve the sustainability of some of the things that she’s seen.” Armstrong also attributed the development of her startup to Blackstone LaunchPad at USC, a campus resource that provides mentorship, ideation and venture creation to aspiring student entrepreneurs.  Despite lacking background knowledge in entrepreneurship or business, Armstrong was inspired to create SUPCUP due to her love for nature. When she moved from Missouri to California for college, Armstrong began to immerse herself in the environment by becoming an avid surfer and a trip leader for Peaks & Professors, a student group that organizes outdoor adventures.  Koch purchased SUPCUPs for Delta Phi Epsilon, USC’s professional foreign service and international relations fraternity, because he wanted the organization to be mindful during tailgates while still enjoying the social experience.  “The college lifestyle is inherently fairly wasteful,” Koch said. “[The problem] is very easy to ignore and go for something that’s easier and quicker, especially red Solo cups, which are a defined part of college culture.” James Bottom, project director of Blackstone LaunchPad USC, said SUPCUP was a unique company.  SUPCUP was launched in September with the help of Blackstone LaunchPad, a USC resource that provides mentorship and venture creation to help aspiring student entrepreneurs. (Krystal Gallegos | Daily Trojan) After realizing how wasteful and harmful party cups were for the environment, Armstrong, who is majoring in psychology and public policy, decided to take matters into her own hands by creating startup SUPCUP, which aims to reduce the amount of waste caused by college parties. “Even if people don’t buy the cups, my goal is to start conversations and create conscientiousness around single-use plastic consumption and to advocate wrecks on our planet,” Armstrong said. “I believe that even the tiniest behavioral changes cannot help but seep awareness into other habits in our daily life, and every cup can make a difference.” Launched in September, the company sells reusable red party cups made of stainless steel as an alternative to the traditional plastic ones typically used for many social events. SUPCUPs look identical to their counterpart and are sold individually and in packs of four, 10 and 20. Since its launch, over 400 cups have been sold, Armstrong said. “Traditional red party cups are made from plastic No. 6, polystyrene, which cannot be recycled,” Armstrong said. “So all of these cups, even if you use them for 15 minutes, are on Earth like in landfills or the ocean where it takes 450 years to decompose into microplastics.”  “There’s a lot of pregame activities that take place all over the United States, and I think that a lot of college campuses, certainly if they have a big football crowd, will have a whole lot of people that are using red styrofoam cups or red Solo cups for their pregame activities,” Bottom said. “It’s just a lot of ways that is potentially easy to mitigate. last_img read more

Trojans annually dominate NFL draft

first_img “Goal Line Stand” runs Thursdays. If you would like to comment on this story, visit DailyTrojan.com or email Michael at katzml@usc.edu Tailback U? USC should probably call itself NFL U. It might actually be more accurate.The NFL’s annual scouting combine began Tuesday in Indianapolis, where the country’s best talent will meet in hopes of raising its draft stock. Seven Trojans will participate in the combine, among them offensive tackle Matt Kalil, defensive end Nick Perry and tight end Rhett Ellison. Other than Kalil and Perry, no other Trojan is expected to be drafted in the first round.It might seem like a down year for the Trojans in the draft, but let us not forget that two Trojans who were expected to be first-round picks —  junior quarterback Matt Barkley and junior safety T.J. McDonald — decided to stay in school.And while names such as Stanford’s Andrew Luck, Baylor’s Robert Griffin III and Alabama’s Trent Richardson are highly touted in the draft, some people are forgetting a key point: throughout the years, the Trojans have dominated the NFL draft.The numbers don’t lie.Since center Tony Tonelli became the first USC player to be drafted in 1939, 473 players from USC have been drafted by NFL teams, according to NFL.com. USC sent 75 players as first-round draft picks, and five of them were the first overall selection. Four Trojans went second overall in their respective drafts.To put this into perspective, let us take the alma mater of one of the presumed top pick in the 2012 draft, Robert Griffin III. His school, Baylor, has had 214 players drafted in its history. That school across town that wears powder blue? They’ve done pretty well for themselves in turning out NFL talent, with 290 players from Westwood being drafted. That’s 183 less than the Trojans have produced.Alabama, the team that won the 2011 national championship, has had 297 players drafted in its history. The only school that can really compare to USC in terms of draft numbers is the University of Miami, which has had 303 players drafted.But perhaps you aren’t convinced. Maybe USC gets a lot of people drafted, but how good are they really? Well, USC has 11 players in the NFL Hall of Fame, more than any school in the country. In fact, the Trojans have as many as Oregon and Miami combined. Auburn, the 2010 champions? One. Louisiana State University? Three. The kings of the Big 12, Texas and Oklahoma, have a combined seven between them.Currently, 55 players that attended USC are on NFL rosters in some capacity. Three Trojans made the Pro Bowl this season, including safety Troy Polamalu, who is likely headed to the Hall of Fame when his career ends.While this year’s class of Trojans entering the draft might seem top-heavy, one cannot overlook the players that have had great careers in the NFL that weren’t first round selections. Safety Willie Wood, who is in the Hall of Fame, went undrafted in 1960. He did pretty well for himself.In 2010, the Trojans did not have a player selected in the first round — the first time in quite a few years a Trojan did not sneak into the first 32 picks. Safety Taylor Mays was the highest drafted Trojan that year, going 49th to the San Francisco 49ers. Analysts were shocked to hear that not a single USC player went in the first round. It sounded as if even analysts had gotten used to seeing the Cardinal and Gold being selected early. The fact that it was an “upset” says a lot about the Trojans football program.When it comes down to it, USC is the most successful program in terms of converting college athletes into NFL players. To deny USC that honor would be an injustice. Sure, not every player who has graced the football field at the Coliseum has turned into a star. But more than any other school in the country, USC has given its players the chance to be NFL stars. Sometimes, that’s all a Trojan really needs.last_img read more

Fernando Alonso to return to Formula 1 with Renault in 2021

first_imgFernando Alonso is set to return to Formula 1 with Renault next year.The Spanish two-time world champion, who will be 39 later this month, has signed and will be confirmed soon, sources have told BBC Sport.Alonso will return to the outfit with whom he won his World Championships, and for whom he has already driven twice during his career.He left F1 in 2018 and is due to make a third attempt to win the Indianapolis 500 with McLaren in August.A spokesperson for Renault said the team “declined to comment on rumours”.Alonso will partner Frenchman Esteban Ocon and replace Australian Daniel Ricciardo, who is moving to McLaren at the end of this season. Why is he coming back?When he left the sport, Alonso said he was doing so because he had “achieved in F1 more than I dreamed of and it’s time to achieve bigger things outside F1”.But Alonso is known to have been in talks with Renault since November last year, and in May this year his adviser, Flavio Briatore, said he was “motivated and ready to return to F1”.Insiders say they believe his time away from F1 has reminded him that no other motorsport comes close to the level of satisfaction possible at its pinnacle.But Alonso will have to accept he is unlikely to be competitive straight away. Next year, teams will have to use the same cars as in 2020 as a result of a rule change introduced because of the coronavirus crisis, and the Renault was a midfield car at the season-opening race in Austria at the weekend.Alonso will hope the new technical rules being introduced in 2022 in an attempt to close up the field, as well as a budget cap on teams, will enable Renault to compete close to the front. A stellar careerAlonso won his world titles with Renault in 2005 and 2006In addition to his two world titles, Alonso has won 32 grands prix, which puts him sixth on the all-time list, and is regarded as one of the greatest racing drivers in history.He also narrowly missed out on another three World Championships – in 2007 with McLaren, and in 2010 and 2012 with Ferrari.But he has not won a race since the 2013 Spanish Grand Prix, and his final four years in F1 with McLaren were a frustrating battle for a team in decline and, initially, in denial about that fact.McLaren have since started a revival – they finished fourth in the constructors’ championship last year, overtaking Renault.Since leaving F1, Alonso has become a two-time winner of the Le Mans 24 Hours, adding victory in 2019 to his first win in 2018, and also competed in the Dakar Rally. The Spaniard has set himself the target of winning motorsport’s so-called triple crown, for which he needs to add the Indy 500 to the Monaco Grand Prix and Le Mans victories he has already achieved.Alonso starred on his debut at Indy in 2017, driving a McLaren-branded car run by Andretti Autosport.But a second attempt last year with a newly established McLaren team ended in embarrassment, after he failed to qualify because of what the team admitted was a series of organisational failures.It remains to be seen what he will say about his ambition at Indy beyond this year, as the USA’s most famous race usually clashes with the Monaco Grand Prix.last_img read more
