Howard backs Everton to bounce back

first_img “We’ll be focused from Monday to deal with what City have to throw at us.” Captain Phil Jagielka, who has not played since the end of February because of a hamstring problem, is expected to return to face City as Everton’s injury list continues to grow. The club are still awaiting details of the extent of calf and knee problems sustained by Leighton Baines at the weekend. Martinez had eight players unavailable through injury against Southampton and with Barry ineligible against his parent club this weekend the Spaniard has recalled forward Apostolos Vellios from Blackpool after just two appearances since joining them at the end of last month. Everton received some good news on Baines late on Monday, with the England defender now likely to face City. “Leighton Baines is set to be fit for this weekend’s game against Manchester City,” said a statement on evertonfc.com. “The England international was assessed over the weekend, but has reacted well to the problem, meaning he should be fit for Saturday’s crunch Goodison clash.” The self-inflicted 2-0 defeat at Southampton damaged the Toffees’ dreams of Champions League football but a point against Manuel Pellegrini’s team will at least guarantee a return to the Europa League for the first time since 2009. They could also do neighbours Liverpool a huge favour by taking points off City, which would give the Reds renewed hope of winning the title for the first time in 24 years. Howard said the priority was to get themselves back on track after the disappointment at St Mary’s Stadium. “Hopefully we’ll brush it aside as a one-off and we’ll have it all to do against Manchester City,” he told the Liverpool Echo. “It will be wide open, a tactical battle with top players on display. “Those games take care of themselves. Those are the easy games to play in. “Gareth Barry (on loan from City) won’t be there but we can cope.” Howard is confident there will be no hangover from a second defeat in three games. “The manager has been brilliant in that regard. He dismisses things very quickly, both brilliant performances and bad ones. “We’ll get it out of the way and have a good week of training again. Everton goalkeeper Tim Howard insists Saturday’s visit of Manchester City will be an easy game to play in simply because of the quality of opposition. Press Associationlast_img read more

Women’s lacrosse falls in NCAA quarterfinals

first_imgThe women’s lacrosse team’s undefeated season came to a screeching halt on Saturday with a 12-11 overtime loss to Syracuse in the NCAA tournament quarterfinals at the Carrier Dome in New York, ending the Trojans’ season in heartbreaking fashion.The Women of Troy (20-1) rallied from a 3-goal deficit with under six minutes to play in regulation to force overtime, only to have Syracuse junior Kelly Cross score the game-winner with three minutes and 21 seconds remaining in the first overtime session. Cross took a pass from Halle Majorana and buried it from point-blank to send the Orange (19-5) to their fifth consecutive semifinals appearance in the NCAA tournament.It was a back-and-forth first half that ended with the score deadlocked 5-5. The Trojans scored the first two goals of the second half on tallies by senior midfielder Amanda Johansen and junior attacker Cynthia Del Core. But the Orange went on a 3-0 run, with two goals by Majorana to give her a hat trick in the second half and Syracuse a 8-7 advantage.Johansen equalized with her fourth goal of the game, but the Orange connected on three straight goals once again over the next five minutes to give them an 11-8 lead. Still, the Trojans swung the pendulum back in their favor with the next two goals, and Del Core equalized with under two minutes remaining as she took a feed from Johansen across the middle and fired it in.Johansen, who was all over the place in the game, had a chance to win it in the dying seconds as she dodged left and attacked the net aggressively, but was stopped by the glove of Syracuse goaltender Allie Murray.In overtime, a turnover by junior attacker Kylie Drexel handed possession to the Orange, who called timeout and set up the game-winning goal by Cross.The Women of Troy had been perfect in 1-goal games this season, though this was the first time they played a game that went to overtime. They are now 0-4 all-time in overtime games. The 12 goals was the most allowed by USC this season. USC defeated Stanford handily in the second round of the NCAA Tournament before running into Syracuse.The loss is a bittersweet end to a historic season for the fifth-ranked women’s lacrosse team, which won all 17 regular season games for the first time in its four-year history and cruised through the MPSF Tournament.Junior attacker Michaela Michael moved into second place in MPSF history for single-season goals after scoring her 68th goal of the season in the loss. The 99 points she scored on the season are also a USC record and fifth in MPSF history.last_img read more
