Photo credit: Windies CricketElecting to bat first on a pitch which looked to offer some assistance to the opening bowlers, Australia closed out the morning session on 69 for the loss of 1 wicket.The decision to bat first appeared to be a wrong one when opener Ed Cowan, went first ball in the second over, LBW to Ravi Rampaul, with the score on 1. However vice captain Shane Watson and opener, Warner withstood some pretty accurate bowling by both Rampaul and Kemar Roach, and then by Captain Sammy taking their side to lunch with no further loss of wickets.Warner was however dropped in the slips by West Indies Captain, Sammy, from the bowling of Rampaul, a mistake that may well prove costly to the West Indies.Dominican born, Shane Shillingford, whose introduction into the bowling attack was greeted with thunderous applause, bowled 4 overs accurately from the off spin.At the lunch interval, Australia are (69 for 1) with David Warner on (28) and Shane Watson on (30 ), Rampaul being the only successful bowler having taken 1 wicket for (22 ) runs in (9) overs with 4 maidens.The West Indies team members are:Darren Sammy (captain), Adrian Barath, Carlton Baugh Jr, Kraigg Brathwait, Dre Bravo, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Narsing Deonarine, Ravi Rampaul comes in for Fidel Edwards, Assad Fadadin, Kieran Powell, Kemar Roach and Shane Shillingford- the first Dominican to play test cricket on home ground.The Australia team members are:Michael Clark (captain), Shane Watson (vice-captain), Ed Cowan, Peter Forrest, Ryan Harris (man of the Match in Barbados will play, he was rested in Trinidad), Ben Hilfenhaus, Mike Hssey, Nathan Lyon, Pater Nevill, James Pattinson, Ricky Pontin, Peter Siddle, Mitchel Starc (1st game of season), Matther Wade and David Warner.Australia won the first test, the second ended in a tie and the Windies are determined to win the final to level the series.[nggallery id=161]Dominica Vibes Newslast_img read more

Napoli president urges fans to be ‘patient’ with match-rusty Osimhen, UEFA

first_imgNapoli president, Aurelio De Laurentiis, has urged fans to be ‘patient’ with Victor Osimhen, hit back at kit design complaints, former coaches, the Government, and UEFA. The patron attended the first pre-season training session on Monday, in which striker Osimhen scored his opening goal. “The fans ought to be patient with him because Osimhen hasn’t played in seven months and still needs to get to know Italian football,” De Laurentiis told Radio Kiss Kiss.

If you want to prove yourself for this club, you have to give everything, not be semi-resting the way we had in the recent past… “It’ll be an interesting season, as Juventus have Andrea Pirlo, Inter have reinforced, Roma are under new ownership, Fiorentina will try to do better in their second year. “However, it’s pointless spending money if we then have to play behind closed doors, it’s the dumbest thing I’ve ever heard!

I saw your complaints, but someone who complains cannot be a real Napoli fan. We chose the red colour of the sponsor along with designer Kappa because it had the most aesthetically pleasing design.”last_img read more

Bucksport names Dave Gross next head wrestling coach

first_img Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020 Bio Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all) Latest Postscenter_img BUCKSPORT — For the past three years, coaching on the Bucksport wrestling team has been a team effort. Come next season, that team will have a new leader.Since the start of the 2015-16 season, Bucksport has operated using a four-man coaching staff led by a former state heavyweight champion, Dan Ormsby. Although Ormsby will not return to coach another season next year, the Golden Bucks had another championship winner waiting in the wings.Bucksport named Dave Gross its newest head wrestling coach at the Regional School Unit 25 Board meeting Tuesday. The decision came three months after Ormsby told The Ellsworth American he would be stepping away from the team, which will remain in the hands of a program legend.“It’s a dream come true for me,” Gross said. “This is the place I wrestled as a kid and the place that made me, and to get the chance and to have this opportunity here, it’s absolutely incredible.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textGross and Ormsby, who spent six seasons as Ellsworth’s head coach from 2008-14 before returning to his hometown, were pieces of a strong coaching staff that also included Robby Perkins and Shawn Costigan. That group that helped Bucksport establish itself as a strong program in Class B as the team saw a massive increase in numbers.Following Bucksport’s most recent season, though, Ormsby announced he would not return to coach the team in 2018-19. He wanted to use his master’s degree in education to get further into administration, and when he received an over to become dean of students for elementary and middle schools at Searsport-based RSU 20, he decided to accept it.“I decided that 10 years of head coaching was enough,” Ormsby said. “I wanted to spend some more time watching my daughter’s last two years in high school. It was a good run, and hanging up the shoes was the best choice.”For Ormsby, Gross becoming the next head coach seemed the logical next step in the process. Although Ormsby himself was not personally involved in the final decision, he had a strong feeling his former partner would ultimately be the man to take the reins.David Gross wrestles Erskine Academy’s Jakob Peavey in the Class B heavyweight title bout Feb. 18, 2017, at Bucksport High School. Gross won the match to form a father-son state championship duo along with Dave, who won the heavyweight division crown over Jason Mowry of Wells in 1996. FILE PHOTO“Dave is really good with kids, and he’s been a big part of building the core values of our program and creating that foundation for a good team culture,” Ormsby said. “He was who I figured would take over when I said I would be stepping away.”Gross was crowned heavyweight state champion in 1996 when he pinned Jason Mowry of Wells at the end of the second period. An inspired Ormsby won a heavyweight title of his own four years later when he pinned Dexter’s Ethan Hight in 1 minute, 43 seconds.Yet Gross isn’t the only member of his family with a championship pedigree. His older son, David, won the heavyweight state title as a freshman in 2017 in front of his home crowd at Bucksport High School, and his younger son, Jaxon, was middle school state champion this past season.“He’s been working hard his whole life, and he’s always driving me to be great and supporting me no matter what,” David said. “Wrestling is a big part of my family, and even though he’s coached me a long time, it’s going to be so awesome to have him as head coach now.”Gross will spend time as one of numerous assistant coaches on the Bucksport football team this fall, but come winter, his No. 1 focus will be wrestling. With talented seniors returning and an accomplished feeder program established at the middle school level — Bucksport was 1 1/2 points short of the Pine Tree Wrestling League title this year — the Golden Bucks are set up well for the years to come.“I think we’ve accomplished a lot as a program these past few years, and I’m definitely hoping to build on that even more,” Gross said. “This is my hometown. I wrestled here, and now my kids were raised here. To get this job is a blessing, and I hope to do some great things.”Bucks appoint football assistant, JV coachesBucksport made three other coaching appointments at the board meeting. Dale Tozier was named an assistant coach for the football team, and Rich Rotella and George Watkins were named head coaches of the junior varsity softball and boys’ soccer teams, respectively.“We are very excited to find such great coaches at BHS,” the school said in a statement last Tuesday. “We know they are just as excited [as we are] to get started.” Mike MandellMike Mandell is the sports editor at The Ellsworth American and Mount Desert Islander.

Cricket News Cheteshwar Pujara’s milestones with Rahul Dravid is the mother of all coincidences

first_imgNew Delhi: Cheteshwar Pujara was earmarked as the successor to Rahul Dravid when the India batsman announced his retirement from international cricket in 2012. Pujara had many of Dravid’s traits, which included calmness, tight technique, solid defence and the ability to bat at No.3 for the Indian cricket team in Test cricket. During the Adelaide game against Australia, Pujara cemented his reputation as the Wall of the Indian cricket team when he scored a century on the opening day of the series to give India something to smile. Following his knock, Pujara reached the milestone of 5000 runs but it also created several remarkable coincidences with Dravid’s record.Pujara achieved the 5000-run milestone in his 108th innings, the same number it took for Dravid to reach the landmark. The coincidences of records goes even further. When Pujara reached 3000 runs, he achieved it in 67 innings, the same as Dravid. When the Saurashtra right-hander went past 4000 runs in Tests, he took 84 innings to achieve it. Remarkably, Dravid took the same amount of time.Read More | Cheteshwar Pujara shows value of defence and application in AdelaideThe coincidences do not end there. Pujara’s 123 was his first hundred in Australia and 16th overall. Dravid, during the 2003 Adelaide Test, smashed 233, which was his 16th Test century and also his first in Australia. In a twisted way, even getting to the milestone was same. Dravid hooked Jason Gillespie to fine leg for a six to reach his hundred while Pujara hooked Hazlewood over fine leg to go past 5000 runs.Read More | Nathan Lyon concedes unwanted world record, enters this double centurySpeaking in the press conference at the end of the day, Pujara said this was the most important knock of his life. “I can’t rate if it was one of the best but the teammates were appreciating, they were saying it was one of the best,” Pujara said.With so many milestones achieved in a similar way, it can be safely surmised that Pujara is the new Dravid in Virat Kohli’s Indian cricket team.

Holding: Archer’s workload at his pace is ‘unsustainable’, tantamount to ‘abuse’

first_imgBy Charles RichardsonFORMER West Indies fast bowler Michael Holding believes England’s overuse of Jofra Archer is tantamount to “abuse”.Holding claimed England’s regular deployment of Archer, who bowled 22 of the 75 overs on the penultimate day of the second Ashes Test at Lord’s, was “unsustainable”.“Archer bowled a third of all the overs bowled. That’s a spinner’s quota,” he told The Independent. “If you keep bowling him like this you will lose the 96 mph delivery. He’ll still bowl fast, 90mph, but do you want to lose the express pace? It is not just about this match or the next, but next year and the one after that.”South Africa’s Kagiso RabadaHolding compared Archer to South Africa’s leading quick, Kagiso Rabada who is the same age as Archer (24), has bowled more than 7 000 overs in Test cricket – more than any other fast bowler his age – and has a history of back trouble, which has caused him to soften the speed of his deliveries.“It’s abuse,” Holding said. “When I was bowling, we had three other quicks just as fast. We could share the burden.”While Archer’s spell was ruthlessly impressive – it ultimately forced Australia’s batting talisman Steve Smith from the field with injury – Holding believes that England’s firecracker needs to be monitored closely in the future.“England need to be very careful with Archer. He is obviously very fit, as you could see with his recovery from the side strain. Like me, he is tall, not big and muscular. He relies on rhythm and looks very relaxed running in. All that is in his favour but it is not sustainable for England to use him like this in every match.Holding’s warning was echoed by Jim Pate, senior physiologist at the centre for health and human performance, who spoke exclusively to Telegraph Sport.“Even for a bowler with such a fluent action as Jofra Archer’s, there are inherent risks in one bowler being asked to take on such a big workload in one match,” he said.“Fast bowling places a big strain on different areas of the body: there is a huge amount of stress running through the knee and ankle in the landing leg (although Archer’s smaller jump into the crease mitigates against this a little); there is pressure on the shoulder, which generates so much of the pace in the delivery; and there is tension running through the bowler’s side.“The nature of high-performance athletes is that they will push themselves to the limits of what their bodies can endure – and often beyond. It is the job of the coaches to ensure the athletes are protected from themselves and not allowed to go too far into the danger zone which can lead to injury.” (Yahoo Sport)last_img read more

Hehir, Petersen lead Syracuse into ACC championships

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 31, 2013 at 1:04 am Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Martin Hehir and Jessie Petersen have been stars for Syracuse both on and off the course as they lead the Orange into its first Atlantic Coast Conference championships.Hehir, a redshirt sophomore, leads the No. 14 men into the ACC championships on Friday in Kernersville, N.C., as the favorite to take the team title. Petersen, a junior, leads the No. 19 women as one of the favorites to contend with No. 5 Florida State.Hehir, who has been the top runner for Syracuse this season, was a 2012 U.S. Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association All-Academic honoree and a member of the 2011-12 All-Big East Team.“The key for me is not to get too stressed. My time management is important because it just keeps me sane,” Hehir said with a chuckle.When asked how he would describe Hehir, head coach Chris Fox had one word: “patient.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis Friday, Hehir will run for his second consecutive individual conference title after winning the crown as a freshman in the Big East last year.“That would definitely be a huge accomplishment,” Hehir said. “It would mean a lot not just for me but the school, too.”Not only could the Orange boast an individual champion for the second straight year, but it’s also vying for its second straight team championship after out-running the Big East last year. Its main challengers this time around seem to be No. 18 North Carolina and No. 23 Notre Dame.The Syracuse women have skyrocketed up the rankings in the past several weeks with Petersen’s help, but defeating Florida State provides a significant obstacle.“Because they’re a top five team in the nation, we’ll focus on beating other teams first,” Petersen said. “You never know what can happen with these races, so we will focus on our racing style first.”Off the course, she has been just as successful. She has been named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll every semester she has been at SU.“As basic as it sounds, they key is to learn focus,” she said. “It’s so easy to pretend to do work and fake it, but when you have as little time as we do, I tend to use the small time I have between classes to do work instead of relax.”A runner who Fox described as “relentless,” Petersen has consistently been one of the top racers for the Orange along with sophomore Margo Malone.The grind will continue for Hehir and Petersen as they guide SU into the postseason and an ACC championship meet that Fox believes both teams can finish very close to the top.“If we get lucky and something good happens,” Fox said, “perhaps even better than that.” Commentslast_img read more
