Reggae Warriors crash out of contention after tie

Reggae Warriors crash out of contention after tie

first_imgThe Reggae Warriors conceded 18 points in the last 17 minutes and were eliminated from contention for the 2017 Rugby League World Cup as their do-or-die match against Canada ended in a thrilling tie on Tuesday.The Warriors, who lost 20-14 against the United States last week Friday, looked certain winners against the Canadians, a team they had never beaten.The Warriors were all over the Canadians early on and Wayne Rettie’s try in the 53rd minute seemed to put them back into contention for World Cup qualification. The Canadians had other ideas, as full back Robin Legault crossed for two tries in three minutes in an astonishing climax.Canada could have capped an amazing comeback for the win had Canadian scrum half and co-captain, Steve Piatek, who had scored the equalising conversion from the touchline to Legault’s second try, not missed with a final second drop goal attempt.NO SHAME IN LOSSWarriors head coach Romeo Monteith was devastated.”I’m proud of the performance from the team. There’s no shame in losing to the world No. 10 by six points, and drawing with the world No. 12 in these qualifiers. We tried our best and I wish we could have held on at the end, but it wasn’t to be, and we have to move on,” he said. “Canada had more urgency towards the end. They had one particularly dangerous play, turning the ball inside from the play … to the full back that kept opening up our middle. We needed more discipline there; we were calling for the team to be tighter around that area, but we weren’t.”Lamont Bryan opened the scoring in the 21st minute, barrelling over from close in, Joel Farrell converting and, five minutes later, the Jamaican lead was doubled, crisp passing seeing Corey Hanson and Richie Barnett combining to send in winger Alex Brown for a lovely score, Farrell wide with the conversion.Canada will play the USA on Saturday, with a World Cup berth awaiting the winners.last_img read more

Israel minister small differences with US over Iran

Israel minister small differences with US over Iran

first_imgIsrael’s international affairs minister on Thursday said there were “small differences” with the United States over the Iranian nuclear issue, a week after direct talks between Tehran and world powers.“We generally see eye to eye with the Americans on the final objective, which is to prevent Iran from getting a nuclear weapon, but there are sometimes small differences over the way to do that,” Yuval Steinitz, who is also intelligence minister, told Israeli public radio.Steinitz, who was on a visit with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to the US to discuss Iran, did not elaborate, but added that sanctions against Tehran must not be relaxed until there is “an agreement guaranteeing 100 percent that Iran will never be able to have a nuclear weapon.” Israel has repeatedly warned against the so-called charm offensive of Iran’s new President Hassan Rouhani, which led to direct talks between Tehran and the P5+1 countries — United States, Britain, France, China and Russia plus Germany — held in Geneva on October 15 and 16.The Jewish state, the Islamic republic’s arch-foe, has insisted there be no relief for Iran from crippling economic sanctions which it says brought it to the table in the first place.Israel, the Middle East’s sole if undeclared nuclear-armed power, wants Iran to meet four conditions before the sanctions are eased: halting all uranium enrichment; removing all enriched uranium from its territory; closing its underground nuclear facility in Qom; and halting construction of a plutonium reactor.Western countries, along with Israel, suspect Iran’s nuclear activities are aimed at military objectives, a claim Tehran vehemently denies.Steinitz said Israel does not oppose Iran’s right to civilian nuclear energy, but insisted it must not be able to enrich its own uranium, which is required for nuclear fuel but can also be used to develop a warhead.Ahead of marathon talks in Rome with Netanyahu on Wednesday, US Secretary of State John Kerry said “words are no substitute for actions” on the Iran nuclear issue, adding that it was too early to talk about easing sanctions on the country.At the same time he hailed the recent signs of openness in Iran following Rouhani’s election and said the country should now respect the same rules as other nuclear powers.last_img read more

Baseball Ohio State falls big to Lipscomb in 93 loss Saturday

Ohio State junior Noah West (8) runs towards third base as he scores the first run of the game against the Lipscomb Bison on March 15, 2019 at Bill Davis Stadium. Credit: Sal Marandino | For The LanternThe Ohio State baseball team was plagued by sloppy play, as it dropped Game 2 at home to Lipscomb.Ohio State (8-10) fell to Lipscomb (10-7) 9-3. In a game that included 17 walks, Bisons sophomore pitcher Max Habegger provided consistent pitching to keep the Buckeyes at bay to record his second win of the year.  Habegger entered the game in the sixth inning, with Lipscomb leading 5-2. He would go on to strikeout six batters in three innings of work.“Their guys came in and executed and we got out pitched in the backend of the ballgame,” Ohio State head coach Greg Beals said. After sophomore starting pitcher Noah Thompson walked five batters and provided the Buckeyes with multiple scoring opportunities, Habegger did not surrender a single walk.“We were offensively in a couple positions where we could’ve made a difference,” Beals said. The Ohio State pitching staff hit two batters and walked 12, the most this season.Beals noted that his team only surrendered four free bases in the win on Friday. Two walks and an error put Ohio State sophomore pitcher Griffan Smith in a one-out jam in the first inning. With the bases loaded, a hard ground ball hit to redshirt junior second baseman Matt Carpenter resulted in a double play to prevent any damage. Three consecutive walks loaded the bases for the Buckeyes with one out in the bottom of the second inning. Thompson struck out the next two batters in order to keep the game scoreless. A diving catch by Lipscomb sophomore center fielder Maddux Houghton kept the game hitless after three innings. After Thompson’s fifth walk of the game, the Buckeyes had the bases loaded for the second time in the game. A sacrifice fly ball by redshirt senior designated hitter Nate Romans broke the deadlock and allowed senior left fielder Brady Cherry to score the first run of the game. Thompson was able to prevent any further damage in the inning. He would finish the game with one run allowed and one hit in four innings pitched.A pair of walks brought Smith’s total up to six walks on the day and put runners on first and second with two outs. A double off the wall in left center field by redshirt senior left fielder Tevin Symonette brought in two runs to take the lead.Symonette scored off a double by senior third baseman Zeke Dodson to increase the score to 3-1 before Smith could record the third out by strikeout to stop the bleeding. Smith would finish the game with three earned runs and two hits in five innings pitched. Coming into the game with only five walks allowed on the season, he walked six against Lipscomb. Ohio State junior right fielder Dominic Canzone was able to bring in junior shortstop Noah West with a sacrifice fly ball to right field, cutting the deficit in half. After a wild pitch allowed another run to score, a blooper to center field by junior catcher Jarrett O’Leary resulted in a single and another run, increasing Lipscomb’s lead to three heading into the bottom of the sixth inning. A one-out double off the wall in right field by West put a runner in scoring position for the Buckeyes. Canzone produced a big two-out triple off the center field wall to make the score 5-3 through seven innings. A silver lining for the Buckeyes came in the eighth inning when senior second baseman Kobie Foppe pinch hit for Romans and recorded his third hit of the season on a two-out single. “I’ll take anything at this point right now. I just want to see something go through. Anything. A little bit of confidence will help out,” Foppe said.Foppe had come into the game hitting only .056 on the season. After a single and a pair of walks loaded the bases with no outs, Lipscomb senior first baseman Cade Sorrells crushed a grand slam down the right field line to balloon the score to 9-3 in the ninth inning. Ohio State and Lipscomb will play for the series at 1:05 p.m. Sunday. read more

Cristiano Ronaldo is sensational, a very good professional, an incredible goalscoring machine for many years, but Messi is the most complete player I have seen.”“He is a great team player. He’s provided 30 to 40 assists for the last 10 years as well as scoring around 50 goals.”“He’s capable of leaving eight or nine players in his path and his goals always stay in your memory.”last_img read more
