Warriors hold off Kings

Durant then scored the next 10 points for Golden State, including back-to-back 3s.The Warriors committed 25 turnovers but the Kings rarely took advantage and finished with 19 points off the miscues.ADVERTISEMENT Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina “It’s a lot of stuff that we can correct,” Durant said. “Stick to our fundamentals and we’ll cut those turnovers down. But for the most part I like where our defense was.”Curry added 23 points and six assists, Klay Thompson scored 20 points and Green had 13 points, nine rebounds and six assists for Golden State.Both teams were playing the front end of back-to-back games.Durant, who missed an easy uncontested layup on a drive from the baseline, fueled the win despite sitting out much of the first half following Golden State’s slow start. He scored 15 points in the second quarter on 6-for-7 shooting, had a key three-point play early in the fourth and then helped the Warriors close out the win late.Zach Randolph had 18 points and seven rebounds, Justin Jackson scored 17 and De’Aaron Fox added 16 point and six assists for Sacramento.Joerger, who was called for a technical in the fourth quarter, returned after briefly dropping to his knees during Sunday’s game in San Antonio. Joerger missed the remainder of that game and did not coach in New Orleans on Thursday.“It was a good game,” Joerger said. “I was propping up my beverage over there to keep me hydrated.”DEEP AND DEEPERThe Warriors won another lopsided game despite being without Shaun Livingston (personal reasons), Jordan Bell (left ankle), Andre Igoudala (rest) and David West (rest).“That’s just the beauty of having a deep team,” Durant said. “We could give guys like (Kevon) Looney and Omri (Caspi) and Patty (McCaw) those minutes. It’s an opportunity for the young guys to step up. It’s only going to make us better as a group.” Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award TIP-INSWarriors: It wasn’t the crispest of games but it was a much better effort than Golden State had in their 129-99 loss to Utah.

VAR denies Ajax goal as Real Madrid win Champions League clash

first_img0Shares0000Nicolas Tagliafico was denied a goal following the use of VAR © AFP / Olaf KRAAKAMSTERDAM, Netherlands, Feb 13 – Real Madrid needed a late winner from Marco Asensio and VAR’s debut in the Champions League to beat a spirited Ajax 2-1 in the first leg of the last 16 on Wednesday.Ajax have not beaten Madrid in 24 years and thought they were on their way at the Johan Cruyff Arena when Nicolas Tagliafico headed home after a Thibaut Courtois error. But referee Damir Skomina judged Dusan Tadic to be offside upon review and Madrid showed no pity on their youthful opponents, Karim Benzema and Asensio scoring two precious away goals in the second half.Hakim Ziyech’s equaliser at least keeps Ajax in touch heading into the second leg at the Santiago Bernabeu but Asensio’s 87th-minute winner was a sucker-punch in a match the Dutch team had largely dominated.Their ruled out opener will likely only add to the sense of what might have been and it was no surprise to see a cluster of red and white shirts surrounding the officials at the final whistle.VAR has been introduced to the Champions League for the first time in this year’s knock-out stages and leaflets were distributed to the media before kick-off, one of the points explaining that reviews should only be made for “clear and obvious mistakes”.Tadic’s intervention on Courtois was minimal and even if he was just offside, it seemed generous to judge he had made enough of an impact on the goalkeeper to be penalised.Still, there was more than an hour to play and Ajax were twice too easily undone on the counter-attack. Frenkie de Jong, who will join Barcelona in the summer, and Matthijs de Ligt, who could follow him, were each dealt a harsh lesson in the ruthlessness of top European football.Gareth Bale was reinstated to the Madrid starting line-up but there was no place for Marcelo, who missed his first Champions League knock-out game in four years.– Tadic hits post –Ajax fans had put on an impressive display of fireworks late on Tuesday night outside the Spanish team’s hotel and perhaps it paid off because Madrid were run ragged in the first half.Courtois skewed an early clearance, Casemiro miscontrolled and Bale swung a frustrated kick at De Jong’s shin.Tadic had the first chance as Sergio Reguilon’s poor pass was headed into his path, a sliced finish beating Courtois’ right hand but not the post.The best opportunity fell to the excellent Donny van de Beek, after the ball was shifted along the line like a rugby move until the midfielder was left spare six yards out. Courtois saved with his legs.Hero one minute, villain the next, Courtois then fumbled De Ligt’s header from the corner and Tagliafico headed in. There was no protest from Courtois but Skomina pointed to his earpiece. Tadic had brushed past Courtois as the header looped in and was deemed offside.The crowd jeered at half-time and Benzema compounded their misery soon after. It was a goal to sum up Madrid’s resurgence in recent weeks as Luka Modric flicked a ball for Vinicius Junior to race after. He tore past one, jinked inside two more and teed up Benzema, who found the top corner.Ajax refused to fade. David Neres and Tadic both went close before Neres skipped free down the left and crossed for Ziyech to slide in the equaliser. Madrid wanted a free-kick for a foul on Lucas Vazquez in the build-up but this time the goal stood.A draw might have appeased the home fans but they were denied even that as a slick move through midfield freed Dani Carvajal down the right. His cross found Asensio, who could not miss.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

‘This will be the hardest Premier League ever’, insists Monk

first_imgSwansea City manager Garry Monk insists this will be the toughest Premier League season of all-time.The Swans finished eighth in the top-flight last season, their highest finish in the Premier League era, and they are being widely tipped to repeat that feat this term.But Monk is not getting carried away and admits the challenge facing his side will be huge.“This will be the hardest season the Premier League has seen,” he told talkSPORT. “Because of the TV money that kicks in the following season, you can see it now with the squads all teams are assembling and the money that’s being spent.“For teams like ourselves the most important thing is we get to that 40 points as soon as possible. That was our target last year and we did that earlier than ever before and we aimed higher after that.“But that has to be the first port of call for any team outside of those big teams at the top.”last_img

Stewart in rush for Ducks

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.“When somebody goes down like Jeremiah last week, somebody has to step up,” Stewart said. “Right now we’re not missing a beat.” The Ducks (6-1, 3-1 Pacific-10) finished with a school-record 465 rushing yards and 661 total yards. Quarterback Dennis Dixon, who was 19-for-30 for 196 yards and a touchdown, added 99 yards rushing and a 13-yard scoring run with 4:52 left for the final margin. Washington (2-5, 0-4) lost its fifth straight, all to teams ranked in the top 12 at one point this season. Redshirt freshman quarterback Jake Locker had the best yards passing night of his young career, throwing for 257 and four scores, but Washington’s defense could never slow down the Ducks’ potent spread offense. Stanford 21, Arizona 20: Jeremy Stewart scored on a 1-yard run midway through the fourth quarter in Tucson as Stanford rallied. It was the second Pac-10 road victory in as many tries for the Cardinal (3-4, 2-3), who upset then-No.2 USC in Los Angeles two weeks ago. Sophomore quarterback Tavita Pritchard improved to 2-1 as a starter, with both wins coming on the road. Pritchard was 19-for-27 for 181 yards and a touchdown with two interceptions. Arizona (2-6, 1-4) lost for the fifth time in six weeks. Coach Mike Stoops fell to 9-21 in Pac-10 play. Air Force 20, Wyoming 12: Shaun Carney threw two touchdown passes and Bobby Giannini returned a fumble 85 yards for a score early in the fourth quarter to lead Air Force (6-2, 5-1 Mountain West) past visiting Wyoming (4-3, 1-2). The Falcons, who forced five turnovers, became bowl eligible for the first time since 2002. BYU 42, Eastern Washington 7: Harvey Unga rushed for 145 yards and scored two touchdowns to lead BYU (5-2) to the nonconference win over Eastern Washington (4-3) in Provo, Utah. The Cougars gained 377 yards of offense despite heavy snow that blanketed the field by the end of the game. Colorado State 48, UNLV 23: Gartrell Johnson rushed for 162 yards and two touchdowns and the Rams (1-6, 1-3 MWC) snapped a 13-game losing streak with a road win over UNLV (2-6, 1-3). The game featured wind gusts of more than 50 mph that littered the field with debris, sent most of the announced 19,266 fans home early. New Mexico 20, San Diego State 17: Rodney Ferguson’s 6-yard touchdown run with 15 seconds left in San Diego lifted New Mexico (5-2, 2-1 MWC) over the Aztecs (2-5, 1-2). New Mexico has beaten SDSU seven straight times, including the last six in San Diego. Boise State 45, Louisiana Tech 31: Taylor Tharp threw for five touchdowns – one of them for 83 yards – and Boise State won in Ruston, La. Tharp more than made up for the loss of Ian Johnson, who led the nation in scoring last season with 25 touchdowns but was injured last week against Nevada and did not travel to Ruston. Even without him, Boise had 465 yards total offense. The Broncos (6-1, 3-0) have lost only one WAC game since 2002. Louisiana Tech fell to 2-5 and 1-3. Fresno State 30, San Jose State 0: Ryan Mathews had a 58-yard touchdown run while rushing for 144 yards and two scores, and surging Fresno State (5-2, 4-0) remained perfect in WAC play. After trouncing the Spartans (3-5, 2-2) at home, the Bulldogs have four straight wins heading into Friday night’s home showdown with Boise State. ETC.: Fresno State suspended defensive lineman Jason Shirley for the rest of the season, ending the senior’s career after his arrest on suspicion of driving under the influence. Nevada 31, Utah State 28: Luke Lippincott rushed for 241 yards and two touchdowns to help lead Nevada (3-4, 1-2 WAC) past winless Utah State (0-7, 0-3) in Logan, Utah. Kevin Robinson returned a punt 70 yards for a touchdown for Utah State, breaking the school record with his fourth career punt return score. New Mexico State 45, Idaho 31: Chase Holbrook, returning from a two-game absence, threw for 404 yards and three touchdowns and Tony Glynn ran for two scores to lead the Aggies (4-4, 1-2 WAC) over the Vandals (1-7, 0-4) at home. UC Davis 41, Southern Utah 21: Former El Segundo High and El Camino College standout Matt Engle passed for 295 yards and three touchdowns to lead Davis (3-5, 1-2 Great West) in Cedar City, Utah. Wes Marshall passed for 237 yards and two touchdowns for Southern Utah (0-7, 0-1). South Dakota State 48, Cal Poly San Luis Obispo 35: Cory Koenig rushed for 259 yards and four touchdowns as the Jackrabbits (3-4, 1-0 Great West) beat the Mustangs (4-3, 1-1) in Brookings, S.D. Cal Poly, ranked 20th in the Football Championship Subdivision coaches’ poll, had a four-game win streak snapped. Around the nation: Quarterback Jack Elway, son of NFL Hall of Famer John Elway, has verbally committed to playing for Arizona State, the Rocky Mountain News reported.

Woman who knocked notebook from Garda’s hand ‘didn’t realise how drunk she was’

first_imgA woman who knocked a Garda’s notebook from his hand and who kicked out as she resisted arrest only became aware of her behaviour when she viewed CCTV of the incident.21-year-old Yvonne McHugh, of Upper Tullagh, Carrigart, was before this week’s sitting of Letterkenny District Court. On October 3, 2015, Gardai were called to the scene of a disturbance at Voodoo nightclub, Main Street, Letterkenny.The Court heard that what was described as a ‘large, hostile crowd’ surrounded security staff.Garda Gallagher was arresting a male, the then boyfriend of McHugh, when she obstructed the officers.Additional Garda assistance was called to the area.McHugh made an attempt to ‘grab’ Garda Gallagher. refused to give her name to Garda Molloy and knocked his notebook out of his hand.“She resisted arrest by kicking out and she was told to desist, but kept acting aggressively,” Inspector Barry Doyle told the Court.McHugh, who was accompanied in court by her mother, went through a ‘traumatic number of years’, said her solicitor, Patsy Gallagher.“She didn’t realise how drunk she was until she saw the DVD,” Mr Gallagher said.“She came into the periphery here when Gardai were in the process of arresting a male.“She is a young lady who was extremely intoxicated. She is now in a different relationship, she is expecting her first child, she works part-time and is a full-time student.“She has apologised profusely for this and is very embarrassed.”Judge Paul Kelly said McHugh had ‘every opportunity’ to offer a plea.“Gardai found themselves in a very difficult position with people baying for blood,” Judge Kelly said.“She was swinging at one Garda, tried to grab another and knocked a notebook out of another’s hand. She was central to this.”McHugh was ordered to pay €500 to Little Angles.Woman who knocked notebook from Garda’s hand ‘didn’t realise how drunk she was’ was last modified: September 9th, 2017 by Staff WriterShare 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:CarrigartJudge Paul KellyletterkennyLetterkenny District CourtVOODOOYvonne McHughlast_img read more
