RelatedPosts Southampton’s Hoedt signs for Antwerp on season-long loan Belgian side Genk has announced the sacking of first team coach Felice Mazzù.The two consecutive losses suffered in the Beglian pro League and the current position in the table both in the league (9th place) and in the UCL group ( bottom of the table) proved fatal for the Italian-Belgian coach.With a statement on their official website, Genk thanked the coach and his staff for their work, but it appeared evident to the club that the team’s current poor run of form could not be overturned by the current coach.“The gap between the quality of the team and their performances so far has been too wide to be solely imputable to the squad rebuilding process put in motion after last season’s title win,” the statement reads.

SYDNEY, Australia, (CMC) – Barbados and West Indies stroke-maker Deandra Dottin took the Women’s Big Bash league by storm on Sunday, pummelling a stroke-filled half-century to fire her new franchise Brisbane Heat to a commanding five-wicket victory over Sydney Sixers.Chasing 139 for victory in their opening game of the tournament at the North Sydney Oval, Heat overhauled their target with four balls to spare, with the right-handed Dottin ending unbeaten on 60 off 44 deliveries to earn Player-of-the-Match honours.Heat were in chaos at 38 for four in the ninth over before Dottin arrived to inspire a 76-run fifth wicket stand with Jess Jonassen, who made 30 from 18 deliveries.When the left-handed Jonassen, who struck three fours and one six, departed at the end of the 16th over, Heat still needed 25 runs from 24 balls to secure victory.Both Dottin and Jemma Barsby (9 not out) struck key boundaries to keep Heat in touch with the run rate, and they entered the final over needing just five for victory.Dottin then made sure of the result, smashing consecutive boundaries off the first two deliveries of the final over sent down by off-spinner Lauren Smith.All told, Dottin counted nine fours and a six in what was her career-best in the Big Bash following an underwhelming last campaign.Earlier, she had taken two for 24 from three overs of medium pace to help limit Sixers to 138 for six off her 20 overs.Alyssa Healy top-scored with 48 off 42 deliveries in a 74-run opening stand with Ellyse Perry who made a run-a-ball 42.In the second game of the triple-header, Dottin’s Barbados and West Indies teammate, Hayley Matthews shone with the ball but failed with the bat as her Hobart Hurricanes crashed to a 17-run defeat to Perth Scorchers.She grabbed two for 19 from her four overs of off-spin as Scorchers reached 142 for four but then made just nine as Hurricanes could muster only 125 for nine from their 20 overs.
.. Josh Hazlewood to play ahead of StarcTHE first day of the second Ashes Test between England and Australia was abandoned without a ball being bowled because of rain at Lord’s.A break in the weather did allow a 15:30 BST start, only for further rain to intervene.There has yet to be a toss and the teams have not been officially named.However, pace bowler Jofra Archer was presented with his England cap, confirming that he will make his Test debut.At Archer’s request, the presentation was made by Chris Jordan, his Sussex team-mate.Like Archer, Jordan was born in Barbados and helped introduce the debutant to the English game.England’s warm-up seemed to indicate that all-rounder Sam Curran would be the player from their squad of 12, to miss out, meaning batsman Joe Denly and left-arm spinner Jack Leach would play.Even if England had decided on a team yesterday, because it is yet to be confirmed, they can still make changes.Australia coach Justin Langer said Josh Hazlewood will play ahead of fellow pace bowler Mitchell Starc, with James Pattinson rested after the first Test.The tourists, the Ashes holders, lead the series 1-0 after a 251-run win in the first Test at Edgbaston.With the full 90 overs lost to the weather on day one, an additional eight overs will be added to each of the remaining four days.Further disruption is likely, though, with more rain forecast for tomorrow and Saturday.There is clear weather predicted for today, when Lord’s will be turned red for the Ruth Strauss Foundation, a charity founded by former England batsman Andrew in honour of his late wife, who died of lung cancer last year.(BBC Sport)
(REUTERS) – World number one Novak Djokovic has said participating in the U.S. Open would be an impossible task due to the “extreme” COVID-19 protocols in place for the tournament at Flushing Meadows.The U.S. Open, scheduled to begin on August 31, will be the first Grand Slam to be played after the COVID-19 pandemic suspended the season in March. The French Open was postponed to September while the Wimbledon championship was cancelled.The suspension of the tennis season was last extended until the end of July but Djokovic, a three-time champion in New York, is not sure the tournament will go ahead. “I had a telephone conversation with the leaders of world tennis. There were talks about the continuation of the season, mostly about the U.S. Open due in late August, but it’s not known whether it will be held,” Djokovic told Serbia’s Prva TV.“The rules that they told us that we would have to respect to be there, to play at all, they are extreme. We would not have access to Manhattan; we would have to sleep in hotels at the airport, to be tested twice or three times per week.“Also, we could bring one person to the club which is really impossible. I mean, you need your coach, then a fitness trainer, then a physiotherapist.”Djokovic suggested economic factors were behind the push to play the tournament. “They want the tournament to go ahead at any cost for economic reasons, which I understand,” he said. “But the question is, how many players are willing to accept those terms.”World number two Rafael Nadal had also said he would not travel to the U.S. in the present circumstances. Nadal has also questioned whether tennis can restart with the pandemic still gripping large parts of the world and every player unable to compete.“For me is very difficult to separate the status that the world is living from my real perspective on the world of tennis, no?” Nadal said this week.“We need to be responsible; we need to be sure that the situation is safe enough then of course try to come back to our tour when things are clear.” The U.S. leads the world in total cases, numbering over 1.9 million, while it has also recorded more than 109 000 deaths due to the novel coronavirus.
MUNICH, Germany (Reuters) – Robert Lewandowski struck twice and set up two more goals as Bayern Munich cruised past Chelsea 4-1 on Saturday to reach the Champions League quarter-finals with a 7-1 aggregate victory and remain on course for a treble of titles.The Bavarians will be on an 18-game winning streak across all competitions as they head into next week’s Final Eight tournament in Lisbon, where they will face Barcelona.“We’re already excited. Barca are a quality side but we want to compete with them,” Bayern defender David Alaba said. “We will go to Portugal with confidence and, after the last few months, we have nothing to hide from.”Bayern, who won the domestic league and Cup double and have won all eight of their Champions League games, quickly killed off the tie with a ninth minute Lewandowski penalty, after having won 3-0 in London in the first leg in February. Polish striker Lewandowski, with 53 goals in 44 matches in all competitions this season, turned provider to set up Ivan Perisic in the 24th minute as the hosts showed no lack of fitness despite a five-week gap since their last competitive game.Chelsea, who conceded seven goals in a two-legged European tie for the first time, did not lack match practice having played in the FA Cup final last week.But half a dozen players were missing through injury, including Cesar Azpilicueta, Christian Pulisic and Pedro, or suspension.“We had individual errors that gave them goals and at this level that will finish you off,” Chelsea coach Frank Lampard said. “It is a good exercise for us to go up against Bayern and their Champions League experience, with a lot of our players having debut seasons.“I can see where I want us to go and I know we’ll be back.” Chelsea did get onto the scoresheet with Tammy Abraham’s tap-in from a Manuel Neuer pass a minute before the break but it was Bayern who were in control in the second half.Bayern substitute Corentin Tolisso restored their two-goal lead in the 76th minute with a well-timed volley from a Lewandowski cross.The forward then bagged his second eight minutes later with a towering header to make it 13 goals in the Champions League this season, confirming Bayern’s status as one of the favourites for the title.The three-month stoppage caused by the COVID-19 pandemic means that the remainder of the Champions League will be played at neutral venues in one-legged showdowns.
Comments After the hurt has fully dissipated, there will be a clear goal over the next four days for Syracuse head coach Doug Marrone: to get his team above .500. And again, he is putting all of the attention and pressure on himself. He did so in just the second sentence of his press conference Monday. ‘Obviously, we’re disappointed going out to the West Coast and losing a game to Washington,’ Marrone said. ‘It starts with me.’ In his first time addressing the media since returning from Seattle following the Orange’s disappointing 41-20 loss to the Huskies Saturday, Marrone looked inward to start the week. He harped on some of the deepest intricacies regarding SU this season, following the loss, for the first three minutes of the presser, all unprompted as part of his opening statement. Marrone discussed the Huskies man coverage, a specific red zone penalty, misdirection in the red zone and the fact that he said the Huskies were a ‘zero-pressure’ team in the red zone defensively. All of the details, one right after another.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text But after those three minutes, the focus quickly shifted to Maine, the Orange’s opponent this Saturday in the team’s home opener. And it shifted toward the hurt. Hurt Marrone didn’t want to endure in the first place, but he is glad his team wants to and is willing to endure. It’s a sign. A good sign. ‘You’re damn right I’m worried if after we lose a game it doesn’t hurt,’ Marrone said. ‘But it hurt. And it hurt everyone when you know you could have done things to win the game. Then there comes a point where you have to learn what has gone on, cut out what everyone around you is going to say, face it and focus on your next opponent knowing that you control what you do. ‘That is an important message and one that has been delivered to our players. We expect them to come back, give us their best effort and get ready to win a game and go above .500.’ In the midst of the discussion regarding Maine, and to wrap it up with the final words at the end of the press conference, Marrone’s mindset trickled down to his almost identical usage of words. Twice, he said the Orange needed to ‘get over .500.’ After two weeks, ‘getting over .500’ equates to defeating a Maine program the Orange beat 41-24 last year. But the head coach said his team is just as focused on the Black Bears as SU was leading up to Akron and Washington. Even if it’s a Black Bear team that has struggled mightily to start the season. The most paramount of those struggles: failing to score once against Albany at home to start the season. The Black Bears lost an embarrassing 3-0 contest to an Albany team that lost eight defensive starters from a team that ranked fourth in the Northeastern Conference in team defense in 2009. On offense, Maine returns nine offensive starters. Still, that was only good enough for a 3-of-14 mark on third down against the Great Danes — and those zero points. The Syracuse players, on the other hand, have four days to prepare to defeat the first of two subdivision opponents. Four days to get above .500. Numbers are just that as of Monday: numbers. Practice for Maine hadn’t even started. But hurt is always hurt. And a game is always a game. Maine isn’t a trap game. But don’t dare say that. The Orange hasn’t earned a trap game yet. Not in Marrone’s book, anyway. ‘Some people refer to these games as trap games,’ Marrone said. ‘You take them for granted. ‘We’re not even close to that stage.’ email@example.com —Asst.

A drive for competition, a love for a sport or a search for a new way to get involved on campus pushes students toward the 44 different active club sports offered at Syracuse University.“It’s a different way to get involved,” said 2012 graduate Bryan Sakakeeny, former captain of the club lacrosse team. “I think lacrosse not only gives the students a sport to play but an alternative way to find a niche or a group of friends.”Club sports give students the opportunity to stay involved in athletics without the demands of playing for a Division-I team. They also give students a chance to build friendships with people of similar interests. Many club leaders must book facilities, schedule matches, order equipment and balance a budget each season. The annual Sport Club Activity Fair will be Sept. 4 from 6:30-8:30 p.m. in Flanagan Gymnasium.Sakakeeny said students can find a social circle within a club sport, a recreational organization as opposed to a more serious student organization like a fraternity. The passion for a sport often brings the athletes closer together.Stephen Rathbun, a junior and president of the running club, wanted to continue running in college. He felt he didn’t have enough skill or interest to run on the varsity team, so he joined the less demanding club.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe said that runners think differently than most people, and he was relieved to find a group in college.“Runners are sort of like twins in the sense that everyone thinks the same in a way,” Rathbun said. “So it’s nice to have that set of friends in college along with other friends.Sakakeeny said many lacrosse players have similar motivations. He and others who joined the club played for four years in high school. Many could have continued at a smaller college, but they wanted to attend the larger SU, which has a top Division-I lacrosse program. The club team gives these students an outlet to continue playing without altering their school choice.Some use club sports as a starting point for potential Division-I participation. Anthony Herbert, a sophomore, works out and competes with the running club.Herbert said workouts are not mandatory, making them easy to work around his schedule. Most clubs allow the participants to decide how much time they want to put into the club, and they get out what they put in.For Herbert, the goal is to earn a spot on the SU track and field team.“A lot of the athletes on the track team have been running a lot longer than me,” Herbert said. “So I joined the running club to stay in shape while I work toward qualification.”Even students who never played sports in high school can join club sports and fit in perfectly.Senior Tim Koes, a senior and president of the rugby club, said many high school athletes, particularly football players, join the team to stay active, despite having little or no experience with the sport.The draw of competition and the team atmosphere attracts students to club sports each year.“They played a sport in high school, and they still want that activity, that camaraderie,” Koes said. “It’s a new sport, new experience. Everyone wants to keep that competitive drive.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on August 21, 2012 at 12:04 pm Contact Jacob: firstname.lastname@example.org
