Keep out-of-town ‘junk’ out of paper

Liverpool suffer new injury blow as Danny Ings is sidelined for six months

first_imgLiverpool have suffered another injury blow after striker Danny Ings was sidelined for six months with a cruciate knee ligament injury, Press Association Sport understands. England Under-21 coach Gareth Southgate expressed his disappointment at the news of Gomez’s injury. Southgate said: “First and foremost, our thoughts and best wishes are with him. “All of us were shocked to learn the severity of Joe’s injury, not least given the symptoms displayed during the pitch assessment and on further examinations after the game. “We took the immediate decision to substitute him following the incident so as not to take any risk. “I have spoken with Joe and, on behalf of all the England Under-21 players and staff, wished him a full and speedy recovery and we look forward to his return.” Earlier, Klopp urged his players to be brave, rediscover the fun in football and forget about making mistakes. The German was both positive and pragmatic in his first pre-match press conference having been appointed as Brendan Rodgers’ successor a week ago. Klopp has been preaching that to his squad as they returned in dribs and drabs from international duty during the week, and while he has not had a great deal of time to effect many changes he expects to see the players at least approach Saturday’s early kick-off at Tottenham with a new mindset. “Some things you can change instantly: mentality, readiness. That is all you can change. It is not fixed that you cannot do more,” he said. “To get really tuned as a team takes time but I am really not interested in the problems we could have on Saturday. “I want to see more bravery, more fun in their eyes. I want to see that they like what they do – I saw that in the week and that is good. “We want to get back trust from outside, get back confidence in our own skills, our own quality. “It is the bravery we need in football, the bravery to make faults. It doesn’t work without faults. Never in history. “As a human being we always think about faults, we don’t think about the good things. That is what we have to learn again. “It is not important how many faults are made in the game, it is very important that no-one can remember the faults after the game. “That is where we can always get better – to accept that something is not the best decision in your life. “Football works because you are prepared for your team-mate making a fault and you can help him. “You don’t have to always try the most risky ball in our lives – you have to learn to run and fight and do everything until the moment, and when the moment is there, take it.” The 23-year-old, who made his England debut in Monday’s 3-0 win in Lithuania in the final Euro 2016 qualifier, sustained the injury in training at Melwood on Wednesday. It is the second major injury setback for new manager Jurgen Klopp after 18-year-old defender Joe Gomez was ruled out for the season after damaging an anterior cruciate ligament in England Under-21s’ 3-0 win against Kazakhstan in Coventry on Tuesday night. Press Association Ings’ hopes of being involved in Roy Hodgson’s squad for next summer’s tournament in France are now in serious jeopardy. He will definitely miss the friendlies with Spain and France next month and is unlikely to be available for the clash with Germany next March. Meanwhile, Klopp has reassured Gomez he is happy to wait for him to return to fitness. He said: “The information about young Joe Gomez is not the best. He came back here and I met him for the first time. “What a wonderful young boy: tall, muscles in the right positions, but he has an injured knee – an ACL. “We have to make a further diagnosis and we will see when he gets operated on but from this point on he can count the days until he comes back. “It was not the best day in his life but he is a young guy and I am pretty good at waiting for players, young players especially. “This is his home and we will do everything to help him come back as soon as possible.” last_img read more

C-NS softball stopped just short of state Class AA title

first_imgJust one more run, were it secured at many different key moments early on a tense Saturday evening at the Town of Moreau Recreation Mark near Glens Falls, and the Cicero-North Syracuse softball team would add a sixth state championship to the five it already owned.But that run never arrived.Instead, in 11 innings, Corning, from Section IV, defeated the Northstars 4-3 in the state Class AA title game, an agonizing conclusion to a season where C-NS had pointed itself toward a state title and very nearly got there. So the Northstars not only knew who was waiting for them, it also had to avenge a 5-2 defeat to Victor back on May 24, no easy task given that the Blue Devils were the defending state AA champions.Perhaps the long wait affected both teams because, for four innings, neither side could get on the board. But in the bottom of the fifth, C-NS got to Victor pitcher Carrie Sidare for three decisive runs, Brandi Feeney’s triple the key blow in that rally.Another run followed in the sixth, but Northstars pitcher Arianna Corasaniti didn’t need anything more. She threw a complete-game shutout, holding the Blue Devils to four hits in a 4-0 victory that helped C-NS earn a spot in the title game against Corning.After just 45 minutes to rest and 45 minutes to warm up, the state final started, and the first batter Corasaniti faced, Atalyia Rijo, belted a home run to put the Hawks in front, but it didn’t last long.Giana Wameling led off the bottom of the first with a single and raced home when Feeney tripled again. Ally Cifaratta’s single scored Feeney, and C-NS owned a 2-1 lead.They stayed that way until the top of the fourth, when again Corning struck with power, this time with Ellie Daugherty going deep off Corasaniti. Another run followed off two Northstars errors.Trailing 3-2, C-NS was quiet in the fourth and fifth innings, but in the bottom of the sixth Brooke Nicolaos tripled and raced home on Jordyn Maldonado’s sacrifice fly to tie it again, 3-3.And it would remain even for a while, due to the clutch pitching of Corasaniti on one side, and Corning’s Laura Bennett on the other side.In the seventh and eighth innings, C-NS put the winning run on base and couldn’t cash in. More frustrating was the bottom of the 10th, when Alayna Harbaugh beat out a bunt single and Feeney singled, putting two on with nobody out, but Nicolaos hit into a line-drive double play and the Hawks escaped.Corning had close calls, too, stranding two runners in the eighth and having Rijo hit a long drive that got caught in the 10th, so the two sides were still 3-3 heading into the 11th.Going first, the Hawks again put a runner in scoring position, this time Erin Austin, and eighth-grader Olivia Keegan delivered a single that brought Austin Home.Now C-NS had to answer it, and got a single with one out, only to have Bennett, with a strikeouts and infield pop-up,  to bring the Hawks its first-ever state title.What made it all hurt more for the Northstars was the fact that a senior class that was part of three consecutive Section III titles – Corasaniti, Feeney, Cifaratta, Maldonado and Bella Kingsley – would graduate. Nicolaos and Wameling return in 2020, as does Alayna Harbaugh, Jenna Imbesi and Francesca LaRobardiere.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: C-NSSoftballcenter_img To say that the state final four festivities in Moreau were eventful underscored all that took place, and it affected the Northstars long before it was able to take the diamond.Originally, the state AA semifinal against Victor (Section V) was set for 11:30 a.m. But the Class A semifinal that preceded it, Ballston Spa against Sayville, went 20 long innings, making the Northstars and Blue Devils wait for more than two hours.By the time Ballston Spa finally won that game 2-1 and the warm-ups for C-NS and Victor were done, the first AA semifinal on another diamond was already over, Corning turning back East Meadow 3-1.last_img read more

Agbakoba-Onyejanya Lights-up Sangotedo with Tiger Active Sports Centre

first_imgBverley Agbakoba-Onyejanya may be a lawyer by training and already a senior associate in Olisa Agbakoba Legal (OAL), but that has in no way reduced her penchant for sports, little wonder she decided to open a sports centre at Sangotedo, Ajah, in Lagos.Tiger Active Sports Centre, which is a sports and recreational centre which contains, an astroturf, basketball, volleyball, tennis court and is also an event/viewing centre is meant to take care of the sporting needs of Sangotedo community. “There was a need to bring up a sports community centre to Sangotedo. It is an area that has a massive influx of inhabitants, with a lot of people migrating from different parts of Lagos to Sangotedo in their droves.“We are more concerned about having banks, schools, churches and mosques in a community but we always seem to neglect the need to have a good sporting and leisure facility. It’s always the last thing that people think about when developing new areas and me being in the sporting industry for almost seven years I felt that there was a gap in this market and I was very excited to come in and fill that gap in this area,” Agbakoba-Onyejanya noted.Tiger Active Sports Centre was officially opened last Saturday by the Chairman, Eti- osa Local Government, Mr. Rafiu Olufunmi Olatunji, who was represented by his chief of staff, Mr. Kunle Ajayi.Agbakoba-Onyejanya said the local government chairman had been on board with the project from the beginning and embraced it, saying the centre had attracted the huge presence of  people .On how the locals are expected to benefit from the project, she said, “It’s a place where families can come and enjoy sport . Even if you are not into sport you can come and relax, sit inside the functions room and watch matches. The place has something for everyone.”She indeed stressed  the need to have more centres within the area.“There is the need for more leisure centres like this for people to escape from the stresses, hustle and bustle of life. We don’t have enough outlets for people to relax we hope that this community would make this their number one premier destination for all things sports and leisure,” she expressed.Agbakoba-Onyejanya has mostly been involved in football, she owns an academy called Litle Tigers Football Club, which has been on since 2012.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more
