Palace pile pressure on QPR

first_img It was a goal that came at a cost, though, as the winger’s momentum meant he suffered a nasty collision with the post, leading to several minutes of medical attention. A standing ovation greeted Zaha when he gingerly trundled back onto the field and he soon made a further impact, firing a shot at Robert Green, unaware offside had been called. Aside from a Charlie Austin effort, it was one-way traffic as Damien Delaney fizzed an effort wide, Furlong squeezed out Bolasie and Glenn Murray headed over. It seemed just a matter of time until Palace netted again and so it proved. Bolasie was again allowed to send over a cross and this time McArthur got ahead of Yun Suk-young to tap home from close range. The collapse did not stop there, though. Zaha was running riot and, despite being hassled by three QPR players, was still able to cut back for Ward, whose shot under pressure from Sandro snuck into the far corner. Fortunately for QPR, the half-time whistle soon arrived and when the teams returned Clint Hill replaced teenager Furlong. Palace were soon making changes themselves, with Zaha limping off shortly after Jason Puncheon hobbled down the touchline in pain. Julian Speroni dashed off his line to deny Shaun Wright-Phillips on a rare QPR voyage forwards, before Austin saw a tame header saved – QPR’s first effort on target in the 72nd minute. Austin followed up with another shot on target after Steven Caulker’s block denied Murray at the other end, where substitute Dwight Gayle’s free-kick was kept out by Green. Just as the match was petering out, Phillips injected some life into proceedings, hitting a remarkable drive from 40 yards past Speroni. Palace fans could only applaud the audacious effort, although it is doubtful they would have done the same had the winger beaten Speroni with another thumping drive shortly afterwards. The Palace goalkeeper saved that and QPR, try as they might, were unable to do any more damage. QPR’s Premier League status is looking more precarious than ever after Crystal Palace ran amok in the first half at Selhurst Park. For a side staring down the barrel of an immediate return to the Championship, Rangers’ capitulation after a solid start was nothing short of embarrassing. Wilfried Zaha, James McArthur and Joel Ward all struck what proved decisive first-half efforts as Palace won 3-1, with Matt Phillips’ late goal of the season contender a mere consolation as the west Londoners suffered a ninth defeat in 10 top-flight matches. This felt like a potentially season-defining performance, never mind result, as Chris Ramsey’s men downed tools after a bright start, with Zaha’s bravery rewarded with the opening goal. Yannick Bolasie was the architect just as he was for Palace’s second, with McArthur tapping home shortly before Ward netted his first goal for the club. The Premier League’s worst away side managed to stem the tide in the second half and pulled one back through Phillips’ incredible 40-yard drive – little comfort given defeat leaves them three points from safety. QPR now have just five points to show from their last 12 top-flight outings, whereas Alan Pardew’s side now look all-but certain to stay up after this win. Things could have been so much worse had the hosts maintained the dominance they enjoyed after Rangers’ solid start came to an abrupt end. The ever-impressive Bolasie cut in from the left past Darnell Furlong and played a neat ball through to McArthur, only for a timely Sandro interception to thwart him. Scott Dann had two headers of differing quality in quick succession as Pardew’s men upped the ante, with the breakthrough arriving in the 21st minute. Bolasie did the damage, ghosting down the left to send a low, driven cross to the far post, where Zaha turned home under pressure. Press Associationlast_img read more

Indian Premier League IPL 2019: Dwayne Bravo credits MS Dhoni’s captaincy for brilliant death overs spell

first_imgChennai Super Kings won their second consecutive game in IPL 2019.Chennai Super Kings will take on Rajasthan Royals in their next game.Dwayne Bravo has taken four wickets in the IPL 2019 so far. New Delhi: Dwayne Bravo had conceded 17 runs in his first over. Shikhar Dhawan and Rishabh Pant were batting with confidence and after 15 overs, Delhi Capitals were in a strong position at 118/2 at the Feroz Shah Kotla. However, Bravo bounced back and took three wickets in his next three overs, including the big wickets of Pant (25), Colin Ingram (2) and Dhawan (51). Bravo’s figures of 3/33 from four overs helped Chennai Super Kings restrict Delhi Capitals to just 29 runs in the last five overs as they reached 147/6. In response, Shane Watson blasted 44 and MS Dhoni’s side won their second consecutive game in IPL 2019 by six wickets against the hosts on Tuesday. In the post-match press conference, Bravo credited Dhoni’s brilliant captaincy for the way he bowled in the final five overs. “Dhoni wanted me to bowl on a straighter line, wicket to wicket and a lot of seam-up. I bowled a lot of effort balls as compared to previous games when I have bowled. I bowl a lot of slower balls, lot of variations and Yorker. The wicket was not suitable for those kind of variations. Dhoni told me no slower balls. Good pace and straight on the wicket and in the second over it paid off.  highlights Having restricted Delhi Capitals to 147/6, Shane Watson got Chennai Super Kings off to a flier and despite MS Dhoni dragging the match deep into the last over, the three-time IPL champions managed to secure a six-wicket win. In the clash between the most experienced side and the youngest side in the IPL, Dhoni’s golden oldies got the better of the young guns. However, Bravo pointed out that in each game, Chennai Super Kings players are reminded of their age but it does not play on their minds. “As we proved last season, age is just a number. When they talk about the Chennai Super Kings team, they always talk about the age factor. We are not 60 years of age. We are 32,35 years of age. We look after ourselves, we look after our body and we have experience. Whatever one tries, you cannot beat experience in any sport, in any tournament. We don’t let these things dominate our mind. We know we are not the fastest, we play to within our strengths, we play smart and we are led by the best captain in the world. He keeps reminding us that we are not the fastest team but we are the smartest team,” Bravo said. Chennai Super Kings will take on Rajasthan Royals in their next encounter at the MA Chidambaram stadium on March 31 while Delhi Capitals will take on Kolkata Knight Riders at the Kotla on March 30.

USG approves accessibility assembly

first_imgUndergraduate Student Government Senator Christopher McMorran gave updates on a program he wants to bring to USC that would subsidize U-Pass transit cards for students. McMorran said he and Sen. Emily Donahue met with USC Transportation to discuss bringing the U-Pass program to USC and increasing the boundaries for free Lyft services. Since the meeting in November, McMorran has created a survey to gauge student interest in subsidized transportation to move forward with the project. Sen. Sara Khoshniyati also provided updates for her work with Residential Education to provide free menstrual products to students. She said they are currently deciding in which locations to pilot the program and how to restock the products.  “Something like accessibility is a huge part of someone’s identity and it’s a huge part of their daily lives … I’m really hoping that the assembly will help advocate for that group and make them feel more welcome here at USC,” Sen. Christopher McMorran said.  SAA will be incorporated as the 11th cultural assembly following a trial period from Jan. 13 to March 31. The resolution grants the assembly $6,000 from the administrative budget for its expenses.  Undergraduate Student Government passed a resolution to include the Student Assembly for Accessibility as one of its cultural assemblies during a Senate meeting Tuesday night.  The inclusion of SAA allows the organization to receive the benefits of other USG-recognized assemblies under the programming branch, including increased funding from USG and greater visibility on campus.  “Incoming transfer students would have a place they could go and share their experiences with other transfer students and have a place to call home because right now, a lot don’t,” McMorran said. center_img “It definitely is a project that is going to be on the ground soon,” Khoshniyati said. “We are looking forward to its launch.”  McMorran is also working with Residential Education to create a special interest floor for transfer students. McMorran believes the floor would help transfer students build a stronger community at USC.  During his monthly Senate presentation, McMorran updated senators on his ongoing projects, including kickstarting a program at USC to provide subsidized U-Pass transit cards to students. The U-Pass program provides college students greater fare discounts on all Metro services in Los Angeles County, including Metro Rail, Metro Rapid and Express Buses.  SAA advocates for issues of accessibility on campus and the diverse needs of disabled students. The cultural assembly consists of several organizations including Colleges Against Cancer, Kicks for Kids, Trojan Dance Marathon, Trojans for Neurodiversity and National Alliance on Mental Health.   The programming branch currently includes five special interest committees that plan campus events and 10 community-focused assemblies that represent the interests of different student groups. Assemblies, such as Latinx Student Assembly, act as funding and advocacy umbrella organizations that unify individual member organizations.  CORRECTION: A previous version of this article reported that Sens. Christopher McMorran and Emily Johnson had met with USC Transportation. McMorran and Sen. Emily Donahue met with USC Transportation to discuss the U-Pass program.

Bermuda’s Boulevard goalkeeper gunned down in gang killing

first_imgHAMILTON, Bermuda, CMC — Ronniko Burchall, Premier Division Boulevard Community Club’s 30-year goalkeeper, has died after being gunned down in what police say was a gang-related killing over the weekend.Burchall, whose last appearance for his club came just over a week ago in a 2-1 defeat against Dandy Town in a Friendship Trophy semi-final, was shot several times at point-blank range outside a Christmas party attended by around 100 guests at St David’s County Cricket Club at around 1.40 a.m. on Saturday.He died in hospital of his injuries on Sunday afternoon.Police arrested a 31-year-old man in St David’s 20 minutes later in connection with the murder, Bermuda’s fourth of 2018.Burchall had faced trial for murder and attempted murder in the past.Burchall was one of three men charged with attempted murder in Supreme Court in 2013.The men, who denied the charge, were accused of shooting another man in his buttocks outside a house in Pembroke parish in February of the previous year. Puisne Judge Stephen Hellman ordered the jury to find them not guilty of attempted murder, and the men were tried on a lesser charge of causing grievous bodily harm and using a firearm.A jury cleared all three, along with another man charged with handling a firearm.Burchall faced a murder charge in 2011 alongside his half-brother, Leroy Symons.It was alleged that they were responsible for the shooting murder of Shane Minors, who was 30, outside his home in the early hours of December 17, 2009.Both men pleaded not guilty to the charge but blamed each other for the killing during the trial.A jury cleared both men of the charges by a unanimous verdict.last_img read more

Miller: LA Clippers starting with new sense of purpose

first_img“If you want to win, you have to have balance,” Coach Doc Rivers said. “You’d love to be in the top 10 in both categories, both offense and defense. That gives you a chance to be a winner.“We have a chance to be a good defensive team.”The Clippers were better than just good Sunday at Staples Center in an 88-75 victory over Utah, a somewhat plodding team that right now is without Gordon Hayward, its leading scorer.Still, it’s worth nothing that the Clippers limited the Jazz to 39.7 percent shooting, 13 second-quarter points and zero hope of winning after the middle of the third quarter.“That defense was terrific,” Rivers said. “We were very physical.“That’s two games in a row where I think our physicality has been something that you notice visually.”Everyone at sold-out Staples Center noticed the physical play.Also noticed was the fact that, even with an entire offseason of absence to build anticipation, poor Chuck the Condor remains the least impactful mascot in sports.It’s amazing, if you think about it, that a person dressed as an enormous cartoon bird could appear in front of 19,060 fanatics who are ready to scream for just about anything and draw a reaction of stifling indifference.But maybe, just maybe, when the home team can make shutting down Rodney Hood seem exciting, there’s no need for outside entertainment.For the sake of accuracy, the Clippers were a good defensive team by just about every measure last season, too. They also continue to employ DeAndre Jordan and Chris Paul, both multiple all-NBA defenders.This season, though, they are doubling down by committing to rebounding, something you’d think would have occurred to them earlier, what with all those too-soon playoff exits.Anyway, the Clippers outrebounded Utah overall, 49-43, and had twice as many offensive rebounds (14-7) as their opponents Sunday. By halftime, Jordan had 13 rebounds himself on his way to a game-high 16.A signature moment came during the second quarter when Jordan followed his own miss with a put-back dunk on which he eclipsed Trey Lyles, making the Utah power forward look like the smallest 6-foot-10 being on Earth.“If you look at the team, at the talent we have, the size and athleticism, that should be a strength for us,” Griffin said in reference to the rebounding.“That is a point of emphasize and it will be going forward.”The Clippers’ leading scorer against the Jazz was Austin Rivers, who finished with 19 points, including 10 in a fourth quarter during which the Clippers refused to allow this to become a game again.And yet, afterward, the talk was about Rivers’ defense, particularly as it related to Utah’s Joe Johnson, who scored seven points in the first quarter and no points in the three quarters that came next.Sunday also marked the home debut of Marreese Speights, one of the Clippers’ new bench players, a guy whose offensive abilities earned him the nickname “Mo’ Buckets” in Golden State.Well, Speights was “Mo’ Bucket” against the Jazz, hitting only 1 of 8 field-goal attempts.Still, he stood in and took four offensive charges, turning a game featuring some of the world’s flashiest players into something as basic and fundamental as canvas high-tops.Much like Austin Rivers’ defense, Speights’ willingness to play the masochistic mannequin was what really mattered in the postgame.“That’s a great example,” Doc Rivers said, “of just hanging in there and trying to do something else for your team.”Said Paul, who knows about the importance of assisting others, “That’s as selfless as it gets.”So, the Clippers improved to 2-0 with a community effort on offense and a dominating defense so impressive that one of them starred by standing still.In all, it was a solid home opener for a team expected to again take flight this season, even if the Clippers’ mascot is still searching for his wings. Yet, there he was Sunday, the former mayor of Lob City, talking about the Clippers winning their latest home opener and explaining that one of their goals remains making “teams feel us on the defensive end.”For a bunch that used to operate so spectacularly above the rim, the Clippers appear determined to keep their knees flexed and their fannies as near to the floor as possible, all the better position to stymie their opponents.In truth, the lights have been out for a while in Lob City. But this? This reality suggests a team certain that it has seen a light come on. LOS ANGELES >> He once was most famous for slamming a basketball after jumping over a car.Sure, the moment occurred during a dunk contest. But there always has been a feeling Blake Griffin could do the same thing in an actual game, if the NBA also permitted that sort of traveling, the kind normally reserved for the 405.center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorlast_img read more
