After a second pitching change by McNeese, Caroline Settle got a huge pop out to get Shelby Friudenberg out for the third out to leave the tying run stranded on third “This was an intense game with a lot of offense,” said McNeese head coach James Landreneau. “I thought Flores was pitching really well early in the game and we were able to put up some run support and then Baylor started to score some runs in bunches. We knew they have that ability to score like that, I’m just proud of the girls for staying within ourselves through all the momentum changes.” The Cowgirls got one run back in the top of the seventh with two outs to lead 11-9.

Joan Alcaraz: from Villarreal to Guayaquil in search of happiness

first_imgAn endless parenthesisJoan Alcaraz’s story in Ecuador has only just begun and already has large doses of unexpected action. Shortly after arriving in the South American country, the Spanish witnessed how LDU Quito’s bar brava beat up a person who was reselling tickets to the final for the Super Cup. He also saw a robbery at gunpoint, that of a hooded motorist to the Guayaquil City doctor: “He pointed a gun at him and took everything he had on him”. Incidents that, unfortunately, are the order of the day in Ecuador. What nobody expects is the outbreak of a pandemic. Nor the death of a 20-year-old youth squad, Edwin Espinoza, shot to death after being mistaken for another person at the door of his house. “The last weeks are an endless nightmare,” discovers Alcaraz, who came to witness the burning of corpses in the middle of the street after the collapse of health by COVID-19. Nothing that has led him to question the decision he made almost six months ago. His search for happiness continues in South America. As he supposed since discovering the U-20 team of Independiente del Valle, Joan Alcaraz has found in Ecuador a source of inexhaustible talent: “It is not a minor country. It is under development and I think that, in three or four years, it will have a very important presence in South America. He does not have great financial resources, but at the talent level he is brutalAnd he is not the only Spaniard who bets on soccer in the country: Miguel Ramírez conquered the South American Cup with IDV, Ismael and Juan Rescalvo lead Emelec and Antonio Cordón, sports director of the Ecuadorian Soccer Federation, chose Jordi Cruyff as selector. “Being able to help in that construction process is what moves us all”, discovers Alcaraz.Joan Alcaraz ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Joan Alcaraz working at his home in Guayaquil, where he awaits the return of Ecuadorian football.Joan Alcaraz In the second most important city -after Quito- in Ecuador, Joan Alcaraz acts as Pool Gavilánez’s right hand man. “I do my own and rival analysis, I transmit my impressions during games and I see other footballers as possible additions. We are a young coaching staff and we do not take a step without agreeing everything. The coach is the one who makes the decisions, but we all feel important in all areas “, details the only Spaniard in Guayaquil City, a” selling “club that bases its football on ball possession:” The coach is smart and knows that if we want to expose and sell players, we cannot bet on first-round matches and He has a sensitivity for positional play, for dominating matches … If you add to that giving opportunities to young players in Primera, City is very similar to Villarreal “. “Villarreal offered me everything a professional can ask for, but I was not happy”center_img Joan Alcaraz, Spanish in Guayaquil City During his time at the Villarreal technical secretariat, Joan Alcaraz (Gandía, 1991) they commissioned him to analyze the sub-20 team of Independiente del Valle. His expectations were very low, but it only took him 90 minutes to fall in love with Ecuadorian soccer. He didn’t know, but somehow he was connecting with his future. Two years have not passed since then and Ecuador is already part of your logbook. Guayaquil City, a modest team that competes in the First Division of the South American country, is now his home. And there, more than 9,000 kilometers from his native Gandia, he has found what he was looking for.For any other soccer fan, being part of Villarreal’s technical secretariat at the age of 28 would have been enough. But Alcaraz “needed something new”: “It was very good, the club offered me everything a professional could ask for, but I was not happy. I did not feel completely full”. It was then that a visit changed his life: “The Guayaquil City coaching staff took a tour of Spain and they asked me to show them the facilities and tell them how we worked in Villarreal. We connected and, before leaving, the coach, Pool Gavilánez, he told me that he was looking for someone like me. “That was how Joan Alcaraz left an elite European club to join the ranks of a modest in South America. “Some people don’t understand it, but I needed to turn my life around and Ecuador is the ideal place to start a new path”, defends from his home in Samborondón, a 15-minute drive from downtown Guayaquil.last_img read more

Child’s play for Iraq

first_imgAfter working at Kaiser in Anaheim Hills, he decided to sign up for the Army Reserve. With temperatures in the “mid-120s” and electricity in short supply, Fematt said small kindnesses go a long way. “It is very difficult for the Iraqi people to make a living these days with the ever-present danger of sectarian violence,” he wrote in an e-mail. “The world only sees the bad stories of Iraq, the indiscriminate killings, kidnappings, torturing and general mayhem that occurs daily. “What they don’t see is the feel-good stories, soldiers giving out humanitarian aid to the people or soldiers engaged in play activities with the children. The children of Iraq suffer needlessly, the government of Iraq has the capabilities to provide public services to its citizens but there is so much corruption at all levels of the government that nothing gets done.” Fematt said numerous organizations are helping in the effort, including Treats for Troops and VFW organizations. But among the most committed, he said, is his mom. “My mother has taken on a mission of getting the word to whomever will listen that her son and granddaughter are stationed in Iraq,” he wrote. “With that in mind, she has made it a priority to ensure that the Iraqi children are supplied with school supplies for the students of Al Abrahemia School for girls.” Reaching out to the children in Iraq, Sofia said, is just the kind of gesture that can build small, person-to-person bridges that transcend the violence there and the bickering back home. “This isn’t helping anything politically,” she said. “But it’s certainly helping those children.” Fematt has dubbed his informal giveaway “Help-A-Kid” and his brothers and sisters are among those who are pitching in with enthusiasm. “Maharban Mother, means hello in Arabic,” he wrote to his mother in a recent e-mail from Iraq. “Happy to see that everything and operation Help-A-Kid is in full swing. I cannot thank you and the family enough for the support you have given me in assisting the Iraqi children. ? Every little act of kindness helps.” Family members believe the efforts will pay off. “People need to know that people do care,” said Fematt’s brother, Ronnie. A recent shipment that went out included 40 soccer balls and several bottles of bubbles, something Ronnie thought children in Iraq might especially enjoy. Fematt’s sister, Rebecca Phineas, sent her collection of 120 Beanie Babies. Sofia has also mined the local medical-supply offices and sporting-good stores, sending boxes of bandages, gloves, paper shoes, soccer balls, liquid bubbles, spiral notebooks, pens and pencils. “People really are so nice,” she said of the response from local merchants. One day, wearing an Army hat while shopping at Henry’s Farmers Market in San Pedro, Sofia said the butcher asked her if she had family members serving in Iraq. “He came right around the counter and asked me, `Can I give you a hug?”‘ Several merchants have donated items or given her big cost breaks when they discover the destination of the items she’s collecting, Sofia said. “This will go on until he comes home,” brother Ronnie said. “We know it’s not going to change the world or the politics. But when they see a soldier coming out to them with a bunch of soccer balls for them, I think it will change some minds. “These kids are the ones who are going to change things.” donna.littlejohn@dailybreeze.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Deals expected, but who? 10 players that could be on Arsenal’s transfer wish list

first_imgArsenal could, believe it or not, be active in the January transfer window.Arsene Wenger recently revealed that the Gunners could complete their first transfer of the winter market within the next 10 days, so it makes sense to look at who could – or rather should – be on the Frenchman’s wish list, including their rumoured opening signing.But who could catch Wenger’s eye over the next month?Take a look at our possible Arsenal wishlist of 10 players who could head to the Emirates in January by clicking the yellow arrow above, right. 10 3. Mohamed Elneny (FC Basel) – Reports have claimed that Arsenal have agreed a £7m fee for the transfer of Elneny and, as such, it looks now to be more of a case of understanding where the Egypt international will slot into Wenger’s side. The 23-year-old looks to be a direct replacement to the injured Francis Coquelin, with his strengths lying in his physical prowess and his reading of the game. In today’s market, £7m is a minor fee, and if he can quickly adapt to the Premier League and fill the void left by Coquelin, he could be one of Wenger’s finest deals. 10 10 10 10 10 10. Charlie Austin (Queens Park Rangers) – On the subject of strikers, if the Gunners are looking for a cheap attacking option in the winter window, Austin, who will be out of contract in the summer, could be worth considering. Many were left disappointed when the striker followed the Hoops down to the Championship, believing that his goal-scoring exploits, despite his side’s relegation, proved his value in the Premier League. His price tag, though, may have been the key deterrent in no top-flight club making a move. With his current Loftus Road deal expiring at the end of the campaign, however, his future is in his hands. 6. Sergi Samper (Barcelona) – We all know how successful Arsenal’s signings from Barcelona have been. Cesc Fabregas, Hector Bellerin and Alexis Sanchez are among the notable names to have stunned north London, and perhaps it’s time for another exciting Camp Nou prospect to turn to the Emirates Stadium. The youngster has excelled in Barcelona’s B side, and his few classy performances for the first-team has earned him much support from the club’s supporters. He could therefore prove difficult sign, with the possibility that he is considered a long-term replacement to Sergio Busquets or Andres Iniesta but, ultimately, if the Gunners offer the right cash, he could be available. 10 2. Javier Hernandez (Bayer Leverkusen) – While Hernandez’s exit from Old Trafford arrived with little shock in the summer, there were some left resenting the decision, particularly with goals proving hard to come by from Manchester United’s current forwards. And they could be questioning the decision further should reports prove correct that Arsenal are interested in the Mexico international. The 27-year-old is renown for his clinical ability in front of goal, with the Little Pea having scored 22 goals in all competitions already this season, and he could be an exciting alternative for the Gunners’ rhythmic attacking play. 4. Ruben Loftus-Cheek (Chelsea) – With his playing time, despite his potential, failing to improve at Chelsea, Loftus-Cheek may now be beginning to consider his future with the reigning Premier League champions. And with Coquelin and Cazorla absent through injury, could a switch to the north of the capital be an attraction? With limited experience, his price tag shouldn’t be too sizeable and he could prove to be a superb acquisition in the Gunners’ midfield. He may be considered a gamble given Jose Mourinho’s reluctance to embed him in his starting line up before his departure, but his quality has been there for all to see. Mind you, with Petr Cech helping the Gunners to the top of the table, Chelsea would probably be loathe to lose another talent to Wenger. 1. Victor Wanyama (Southampton) – In the summer transfer window, reports claimed that the midfielder had told the Saints of his desire to move on from St Mary’s, with Tottenham Hotspur heavily linked with a move. As with Morgan Schneiderlin 12 months before, however, Southampton stood firm in blocking his exit and, similarly to the Frenchman, staying looks to have benefitted his development. Arsenal have recently been credited with interest in the Kenya international, but he may prove difficult to prize away with Ronald Koeman, understandably, not keen on selling in January. 10 7. John Stones (Everton) – Wenger has done a fine job in signing Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, but the money Arsenal have spent on their attack has left their defence neglected. Laurent Koscielny has often been described as one of the best centre backs in the Premier League; his partner Per Mertesacker, on the other hand, doesn’t scream confidence. At present, there are few better in central defence than Stones. It was a disappointment when Wenger didn’t push to sign Gary Cahill ahead of Chelsea – don’t let that happen again. This deal may be more realistic in the summer, but why not jump ahead of the pack by registering interest now? 9. Loic Remy (Chelsea) – There’s no question that Remy has to seek a Stamford Bridge exit if he is to resurrect his career, no matter how enticing his current wages may be. The Frenchman has almost gone backwards at Chelsea, and it’s unlikely that his situation will improve, with the possibility of new signings likely to further move him down the pecking order. Should Arsenal express an interest, therefore? The striker has proven his reliability in front of goal for Queens Park Rangers, Newcastle United and, on the occasion he has been called upon, Chelsea, and if he remains keen on a top four side, the Gunners could be an exciting proposition. Whether his playing time would drastically improve, though, is questionable. 10 8. Ben Chilwell (Leicester City) – With Nacho Monreal nearing the age landmark of 30 and Kieran Gibbs remaining unreliable, Wenger may be considering a long-term option at left-back. That man could be Chilwell. The England Under-20 captain enjoyed an eight-game loan spell at Championship outfield Huddersfield Town, and he could already have caught the eye of the Gunners, if reports are to be believed. With Bellerin bursting into the Arsenal first-team as a teenager, Wenger could be keen on nurturing another promising young talent. 5. Michael Carrick (Manchester United) – Carrick’s United contract runs out in June, so while he may seem the most fanciful player on this potential wish list, he could be the most influential. At 34 years old, Carrick wouldn’t be a long-term prospect for the Gunners, but the signing of Petr Cech in the summer has suggested that Wenger is finally interested in more than potential alone. The addition of an experienced player such as Carrick could be a further boost to their dressing room, and his calm authority on the ball could see him settle in with ease on the pitch. If Arsenal are to sustain a challenge for the title in the second half of the season, an experienced Premier League player should surely be a priority. 10last_img read more

Hillary’s fete with Fox’s Murdoch raises ire

first_imgNEW YORK – Media mogul Rupert Murdoch, whose Fox News Channel and other conservative news outlets have been skewering Hillary Rodham Clinton for years, will host a summer fundraiser for the senator, mystifying some observers and enraging others. Especially incensed are liberal activists, who for months have decried what’s seen as a shift to a right on Clinton’s part as the Democrat contemplates a run for president in 2008. They are stunned that she is associating with a man viewed as a cornerstone of the “vast right-wing conspiracy,” the term Clinton herself coined. “Hillary, help us. Who the hell are you?” thundered Washington Post columnist Richard Cohen. Liberal blogger David Sirota complained: “The brazenness of this move is almost too much to stomach.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinalsNeither Clinton nor Murdoch have had much to say about the fundraiser since it was first reported this week by The Financial Times. “I think this is about New York. It’s about the kind of job that I’m doing as a senator from New York,” Clinton said Friday. Murdoch, for his part, dismissed the event as “no big deal.” “We think that she has been effective on state issues and local issues here in New York,” Murdoch said on a News Corp. earnings call. The Clinton-Murdoch alliance is not entirely new. The two have been moving toward a detente since 2000, when she won her Senate seat after a campaign that included a series of not-so-flattering Clinton headlines in another Murdoch property, the New York Post. The Post even ran a pleading headline, “Don’t Run!” before Clinton formally joined the race. Murdoch also has developed a relationship with former President Clinton, a prime target of criticism from Fox and the New York Post during his presidency. Murdoch participated in a conference of the Clinton Global Initiative last fall, and the former president is scheduled to address a gathering of News Corp. executives in California later this year. Murdoch, whose $60 billion empire is a major presence in New York, is more shrewd businessman than ideologue, and friendly relations with a powerful New York senator are in his best interest. Murdoch also organized a fundraiser for New York Sen. Chuck Schumer, a Democrat, during his re-election campaign in 2004. But Clinton’s motive for accepting a Murdoch-sponsored fundraiser is not quite as clear. She faces minimal opposition in her Senate race – something Murdoch acknowledged this week in an interview on Fox News. And with at least $20 million in her campaign account, Clinton doesn’t really need the money. But Maurice Carroll, director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute, said the arrangement suits Clinton and Murdoch equally well. “She’s reaching out to a guy who’s on the right side of the spectrum, and she needs some friends there,” Carroll said. And Murdoch? “That’s simple – Hillary’s going to run for president, and she might win,” Carroll said.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

first_imgDonegal GAA fans from the greater Philadelphia area will get their opportunity to get their hands on the coveted Sam Maguire when Donegal boss Jim McGuinness and some of this year’s Donegal All-Stars visit the Commodore Barry Irish Centre in the city on November 13th.McGuinness, who spent a summer in Philadelphia playing for the Donegal team there in 1999, knows only too well how passionate the Donegal exiles in Philly are about the game and he readily agreed to their request to bring Sam to the city.The Donegal manager will be joined on the trip to his old stomping ground by All-Stars Michael Murphy and Mark McHugh and the trio will bring the coveted trophy to event in Philadelphia a few days before their all-Star match in New York City.

Some of them perhaps were at home when the team last won it in 1992 and these are the people we really want to reach.“We’re hoping that people at home in Donegal will contact their relatives – young and old – and let them know of this visit because it really will be a memorable night,” he added.To defray the cost of the event and continue to support Donegal Gaelic Football in Philadelphia there will be a charge of $50 per adult on the night that will include music and hors d’ouevres, but under 18s will be able to attend for free.“There is a massive population in the Greater Philadelphia region proud to hail from or claim Donegal as their heritage. We have a very active and involved Donegal Association here that is about to celebrate its 124th Annual Ball and having witnessed the emotions and sense of pride the All Ireland victory evoked in so many outside of Ireland we are certain that this as an event that Donegal people, indeed any Irish sports fan here, will not want to miss.”Anyone in Philadelphia seeking further information about the event or tickets for the night can call – Louie Bradley – 6106330313, Ciaran Porter – 2675819394, Pat Bourke – 6107210063, Brid McMeel – 2157786512 or e.mail donegalphilly@gmail.com CALLING ALL DONEGAL EXILES – SAM IS ON HIS WAY TO PHILADELPHIA! was last modified: November 6th, 2012 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:Jim McGuinnessPhiladelphiaSam Maguirelast_img read more
