Myhill braced for Foster return

first_img When that time does come, Myhill, although happy with the form he has been showing, knows there is every chance he might be dropped, with Foster going straight back into the side. Speaking ahead of West Brom’s Monday night league clash at home against midlands rivals Aston Villa – the club at which the 31-year-old began his career – Myhill said: “Ben has proved himself to be a top keeper all the time he’s been here and I have no illusions – I’ll be up against it. “Your best is always good enough as a player, and if the manager chooses Ben that’s his decision. I just want to do as well as I can while he’s not fit.” Asked if he felt capable of keeping a fit Foster out, Wales international Myhill said: “You’d have to ask the manager that, I don’t pick the team. “I’d like to play in the team, I’m trying my best at the minute and I think everybody’s happy with the way I’m playing. “The manager is paid to pick the team. He’s doing a good job of it and we’ll just keep fighting to get in the team all over the pitch.” Clarke has given little away on the matter, describing Myhill as a “joint number one”. Clarke said: “It’s been great for me, great for the club and great for Boaz because he’s waited a long time to get in the team. Boaz Myhill has emphasised he is under no illusions about the battle he will face for first-team football when his fellow West Brom goalkeeper Ben Foster returns to fitness. “The job of number two goalkeeper at any club is a difficult one but he’s proved this season that he’s more than a number two, he’s a joint number one – when he’s had to come in and do the job for us he’s been great. “To lose Ben Foster when we lost him at the start of the season could have been very difficult for the club and for the team going forward. “But we knew we had another international goalkeeper who could come in and do the job and the way the team has defended tells you the back four are comfortable with Boaz and he is comfortable with them. “It’s been an almost seamless transition.” Myhill has played in Albion’s last nine Barclays Premier League games after Foster, who has been the club’s established number one, sustained a stress fracture of a bone in his right foot in a 0-0 draw at Everton on August 24. Foster was initially ruled out for 12 weeks, and while he has returned to light training, Baggies boss Steve Clarke on Friday refused to give a timescale in terms of when the England international might be available for first-team selection again.

Zardini leads Tour of Britain

first_imgItaly’s Edoardo Zardini emerged triumphant from the gruelling climb of The Tumble to claim victory in stage three of the Tour of Britain on Tuesday and the overall leader’s yellow jersey. Press Association Dylan Teuns of Belgium (BMC Racing Team) was fourth, while defending champion Sir Bradley Wiggins (Team Sky) was fifth, 14 seconds back. The Briton has now moved from 10 to 24 seconds off the top in the general classification, which sees Zardini 13 seconds clear of second-placed Kwiatkowski. Roche, who has been linked with a move to Team Sky, is third overall, 17 seconds back. As the riders started to approach The Tumble on the outskirts of Abergavenny, a three-man breakaway of Britons Michael Cuming (Rapha Condor) and Tom Stewart (Madison Genesis) and Italian Manuele Boaro (Tinkoff Saxo) struck out. Boaro then went it alone, with the other two being swallowed by the peloton, but he was subsequently swept up himself as the bottom of the climb got near. New Zealander Jack Bauer (Garmin-Sharp) instigated an early attack on the summit, but he could not sustain his momentum and it was Roche and Zardini who then put a gap between them and the rest before the latter finally crossed the line to seal the win in four hours, 35 minutes and two seconds. There are five days of the race to go, with Wednesday’s 184.6km stage taking the riders from Worcester to Bristol. center_img Nicolas Roche (Tinkoff-Saxo) had moved ahead of Zardini (Bardiani-CSF) as the pair battled at the front on the summit finish, but the Irishman was subsequently overtaken by his rival, who exhibited perfect timing as he broke clear to win by nine seconds. Roche eventually came in third, 11 seconds back, with Pole Michal Kwiatkowski (Omega Pharma-QuickStep) taking second place. last_img read more

FL woman smiling in mugshot gets 11 years for fatal DUI crash

first_imgAn Ocala woman was sentenced to 11 years in prison on Thursday for the fatal DUI crash that left a 60-year-old mother dead.Angenette Marie Welk who plead no contest to a charge of driving under the influence manslaughter was also fined $5,000 and given 15 years of probation.Additionally, the 45-year-old must write a letter every year in May documenting what she’s learned from the crash.Welk’s case went viral after a mugshot featuring her smiling following the crash was made public record.In May of 2018, Welk drove her car into ongoing traffic on the U.S. Highway 27 and rear-ended a Hyundai Elantra with enough force to sandwich it between her vehicle and a tractor-trailer that was directly in front of it, according to the crash report.Here’s the car Sandra Clarkston was in a year ago. “My mother was senselessly and recklessly taken from me.” Said her daughter, Keonna Sciacca.She said in her testimony that her mother had a stroke, brain damage, and was bleeding following the crash. @news6wkmg pic.twitter.com/ASHWBq5QEp— Ezzy Castro (@EzzyCastro) May 16, 2019 The 18-year-old driver of the Elantra, Shiyanne Kroll, sustained minor injuries but her mother, Sandra Clarkston, suffered critical injuries and died at the hospital a few days after the crash.Officials said Welk had a blood alcohol level of 0.189 when she crashed into Clarkston’s vehicle and that they found an empty bottle of vodka at the scene. ”“I would like to start by saying how sorry I am for this tragic loss. Welk said at her sentencing hearing. “You’ve lost a mother, a sister, an aunt, a loved one. I don’t have the words.”Welk’s defense attorney addressed the notorious ‘smiling’ mugshot while interviewing the defendant in which she said it was a reaction to being nervous.She also cited that the reason for the crash had to do with misplacing her cellphone, not her drinking.Welk faced a maximum sentence of 17 years in prison.last_img read more

Cricket News England recall Jack Leach, Moeen Ali dropped for Lord’s Ashes Test vs Australia

first_imghighlights Moeen Ali has been dismissed by Nathan Lyon nine times in 11 innings.James Anderson has been ruled out of the Lord’s Test.Australia won a Test in Edgbaston after 18 years. New Delhi: England, the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 champions, are on the backfoot in the ongoing Ashes contest against Australia after a huge 251-run defeat in the first Test in Edgbaston. Steve Smith’s two centuries and Nathan Lyon’s haul of 6/44 in the second innings helped Australia break their 18-year hoodoo at the venue. Heading into the second Test at Lord’s which begins on August 14, Joe Root’s side have made changes in a bid to square the series. Moeen Ali, who struggled with the ball on a turning wicket in Edgbaston and was dismissed for 0 and 4 in both innings by Lyon, has been dropped for the Lord’s Test and replaced by Jack Leach, the left-arm spinner. Moeen fell for the ninth time in 11 innings to Lyon and this prompted many England commentators, mostly former England captain Nasser Hussain to say he was ‘shot mentally’.This will not be the first time Moeen has been replaced by Leach. During the Ashes 2017/18 series Down Under, Moeen suffered a slump with both bat and ball and he was not picked for the series in New Zealand. Leach had played in the one-off Test against Ireland in Lord’s and it was his 92 while opening the batting as a nightwatchman that allowed England to recover and register a tense win against the Irish. With James Anderson ruled out of the Lord’s Test, England could hand a debut to Jofra Archer. The right-arm pacer, who suffered a side strain and did not play for a couple of weeks, has been in good form for Surrey and former Australia skipper Jason Gillespie remarked that Archer ‘must play at Lord’s’. “I was surprised he didn’t play the first Test to be perfectly blunt.  I think England missed a trick by not playing him but he’ll certainly play at Lord’s,” Gillespie told the official Cricket Australia website. The replacement for Anderson in the side could also be Sam Curran, the all-rounder who made a big impact in the series against India which England won 4-1. Australia has lost just three games in the last 75 years of playing a Test in Lord’s and they will be determined to extend their advantage.England squad for Lord’s Test: Joe Root (capt), Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow, Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jack Leach, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes, Chris Woakescenter_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Cricket News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps.last_img read more

After knocking off Cornell, Syracuse defense focused on slowing VCU’s prolific offense to reach tournament’s third round

first_img Published on November 18, 2012 at 6:14 pm Contact Trevor: tbhass@syr.edu | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+ Head coach Ian McIntyre knew his team would be in for a difficult challenge against Cornell’s explosive offense.On Tuesday afternoon, two days before the most significant game for Syracuse since 1984, McIntyre made sure his team was ready.Ted Cribley drilled a one-timer toward the goal off a pass from McIntyre, who stood cemented in the center of the box. The ball sailed over the bar. Mark Brode took a shot, but the ball flew just right of the goal. Though a few shots found the back of the net, SU goalkeeper Alex Bono stopped the vast majority, serving as a stone wall for Syracuse, as he’s done all season.Bono’s practice with that drill, along with other similar high-pressure drills, helped prepare him for Cornell’s dynamic offense. With tremendous help from the back four, Bono shut out the Big Red, leading the Orange to its first-ever win in the NCAA tournament. Now SU’s defense will square off against another explosive offense, as Syracuse (13-6) faces No. 14-seed Virginia Commonwealth (12-3-5) Sunday, with a spot in the third round of the NCAA tournament on the line.“We had to grind it out as always,” Cribley said after the win over Cornell. “We’ve been under pressure this season – similar games like that, where teams have put their big men forward and stuck it in the box. We’re accustomed to that. We train like that as well.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDespite Bono’s clean sheet, the goalie doesn’t hesitate to give the majority of the credit to his back four.“The back four was absolutely phenomenal,” Bono said. “I didn’t actually have much to do. Just a couple crosses for me here and there.”Cornell players swarmed into the box, frantically trying to salvage their 15-1 season and ensure it wouldn’t end in heartbreak.Yet, as each shot flew toward the net, communication and cohesiveness enabled the Orange to thwart each attack with poise.McIntyre praised his defense as well, saying that a collective effort led Syracuse to the win. He did single out two players in particular, though, players who have seen an increased role in the weeks since defender Skylar Thomas’ season-ending injury.“Chris Makowski was awesome tonight,” McIntyre said. “(Nick) Bibbs alongside. Since Skylar Thomas went down at Cincinnati those two have been rocks.”Those rocks, along with Jordan Murrell and Tyler Hilliard, have anchored a Syracuse defense that has posted 12 shutouts on the season, the most for the program since 1982.Now Syracuse will look to continue to ride that momentum against VCU and keep its postseason run alive. SU will be in for yet another difficult challenge, though, as the Rams’ offense is in the top 20 nationally scoring at two goals per game.Jason Johnson, VCU’s most lethal scorer, comes into the game tied for 11th nationally with 32 points. The Orange defense will look to shut down Johnson, as it did Cornell’s Daniel Haber, in order to help lead the team to another victory Sunday night.“We’ve got a solid back four,” Cribley said. “We’ve got some very good players back there.” Commentslast_img read more

Marshall unveils international degree

first_imgThe USC Marshall School of Business announced Wednesday a new program that will allow a group of 45 undergraduates to earn degrees from three universities and study on three different continents over the course of four years.Business · Bocconi University in Milan, above, is one of the schools participating in the World Bachelor in Business’ new degree program. – Photo courtesy of USC Media RelationsThe World Bachelor in Business program was created through a partnership between USC, The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology and Bocconi University in Milan, Italy. Students will spend one full academic year at each of the three universities and may choose one of the schools to spend their fourth year. The program will be available to students who are applying for fall admission but not current students.HKUST was named the top university in Asia by QS Asian University Rankings, and Bocconi University is internationally renowned for its business and economics programs. In general, the program will focus on world business and communication in multiple languages.According to John Matsusaka, vice dean for faculty and academic affairs at Marshall, the WBB program is the first of its kind.“There really is no one in the world doing anything like this, where you can go to three places and get three degrees in the three major economic and cultural zones of the world,” he said.Matsusaka said the idea for the program was born out of a 2009 conversation about the future of higher education with a friend who worked at Bocconi. Each presented the idea to their own universities, and eventually, the two institutions came together to find an Asian partner.Once all three schools were onboard, representatives from the universities participated in a series of meetings to outline the details of the program, including admission guidelines, scholarship awards and the process of transferring credits. All the schools have a similar “Western-style” of teaching, according to Matsusaka, which will allow for a seamless transition from school to school for students.“Students will get three degrees, but no school is compromising,” Matsusaka said. “There is some flexibility, but the entire curriculum will fit together. Part of the reason we wanted to do this is that we wanted to experiment.”Students who apply to enter the program before their freshman year must be simultaneously accepted to all three universities, which will jointly decide who is admitted to the program.“There’s a big difference between treading about another country, visiting as a tourist, and actually living there,” Matsusaka said. “There is no substitute for being immersed in the culture, but this experience is not for every student. It’s for a student who’s a bit adventurous, forward-looking and ambitious.”last_img read more
