Ajax draw first blood against Spurs

first_imgLONDON (AP): Donny van de Beek gave youthful Ajax a 1-0 win over Tottenham in the first leg of their Champions League semi-final yesterday, edging the Dutch side towards a first European Cup final in 23 years. A Tottenham side depleted by injuries and suspension gifted the visitors too much space to string together slick passes early on, and the 22-year-old Van de Beek ghosted into the penalty area to receive a through-ball from Hakim Ziyech before knocking a shot past goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the 15th minute. Overwhelmed in the first half, Tottenham were more assertive after the break against the 1995 champions but lacked the attacking end product to equalise, with Harry Kane injured and Son Heung-min suspended. The hosts, contesting their first European Cup semi-final in 57 years, also had to contend with the loss of defender Jan Vertonghen in the first half with an injury that threw a fresh spotlight on football’s handling of suspected concussions. Vertonghen challenged for a header in the Ajax area but slammed his face into the back of teammate Toby Alderweireld’s head, leaving him with blood pouring from a cut on his nose in the 32nd minute. Vertonghen received treatment on the field and went to change his bloodied white jersey. Referee Antonio Mateu Lahoz was pointing at his head as he spoke to Vertonghen, before allowing him to return to action in the 38th minute. Vertonghen lasted only 40 seconds before going across to the sideline, leaning over and struggling to stand. Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino had to grab Vertonghen to stop him from keeling over before the Belgian was helped down the tunnel by two medical officials. Vertonghen could miss the trip to Amsterdam to face his former club next Wednesday. Barcelona host Liverpool in the other semi-final today.last_img read more

High school football: Plain Dealing routs Tensas in opener

first_imgIt took only one play for the Plain Dealing Lions to assert their dominance against the Tensas Panthers on Thursday night in Plain Dealing.On their first offensive play, the line opened a big hole for running back TJ McCauley. The result was a signficant gain. A few players later, Ladavious Scott went 12 yards for the season’s first touchdown with barely a minute gone in the contest.The Lions went on to rout the Jaguars 36-6. Scott led the Lions with 98 yards rushing on 12 carries. McCauley also had a big night, gaining 90 yards on 16 carries. He scored two two-point conversions and ran hard throughout the game, picking up many of his yards after being hit.“It’s good to open with a win, because when you open with a loss it’s hard to dig out of it sometimes,” Plain Dealing coach James Thurman said. The Lions lined up in a tight formation for much of the game and got big yardage up the middle on the ground behind a strong push by the line. But as Tensas loaded up to stop the run, senior quarterback Artavious Washington-Carper was able to hit junior Ladarious O’Neal twice for touchdowns of 26 and 29 yards in the first half.The second TD pass made it 22-0 early in the second quarter and that was the score at the half. “We kind of changed some of our personnel up, got some of our big guys where they’re not going both ways full time, get a good rotation,” Thurman said. “The offensive line really played hard. They kind of packed the box on us early on so we were able to hit them with two touchdown passes. That was great that our quarterback was able to put the ball where he needed to and Ladarious O’Neal was able to take it to the end zone.”Plain Dealing increased its lead to 28-0 early in the third quarter on an 8-yard run by Washington-Carper. The Lions took over at the Tensas 20 after the Jaguars punter, under a heavy rush, was unable to get the kick off.Plain Dealing added a final touchdown in the fourth quarter. Inside the Panthers 5, Washington-Carper fumbled the snap and lineman RJ Bragg picked it up and ran it in. Dezmond Player scored the two-point conversion.A running clock was used for most of the second half.Tensas didn’t score until the final minute. The Lions defense dominated. Freshman Ar’davious Washington-Carper, Artavious’ brother, intercepted two passes. Senior Jakevious Washington also had an interception. The Panthers hurt themselves with numerous short snaps out of the shotgun formation. The Lions recovered one of those and took advantage of the others by making life miserable for Tensas quarterback Kedrick Giles, who took several hard hits.“I felt like we got to their quarterback real well,” Thurman said. “We were getting some pressure on them. We had some guys that were coming pretty hard. The center was having to get the ball off and get a block right there. I think he was snapping it low a little bit and the quarterback was kind of getting in a little hurry.“We hit No. 2 (Giles) pretty hard and he had to go out for a little while and that probably paid off for us. He’s their best player. He’s a heckuva athlete. So any time he was on the bench taking a break it really helped us out on defense.”Overall, it was a satisfying win for Thurman, whose team ended last season on a seven-game losing streak. The Lions lost only one fumble and had only one penalty that was really costly. “I’m very, very proud of the kids,” Thurman said. “We were able to come out in the shotgun a little bit, throw the ball a little bit and run the ball a little bit. We were just trying to be a little more versatile.” Premier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond Boutique|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoBig Data Courses | Search AdBig Data Online Courses Might Actually Surprise YouBig Data Courses | Search Ad|SponsoredSponsoredUndoNews gadgetThis watch takes the whole country by storm! it’s price?

The Boston franchise won 108 games during the regular season en route to winning the World Series title in 2018, losing only three playoff games in the season.

Windies crash out of World Cup after NZ fightback

first_imgBENONI, South Africa, CMC – West Indies dropped four catches, missed a vital run out while conceding 38 runs from the last three full overs, as they squandered a winning position to crash to a shock two-wicket defeat to New Zealand, and miss out on a spot in the final four of the ICC Under-19 World Cup here yesterday. Defending 238 at Willowmoore Park, the Caribbean side reduced the young Kiwis to 153 for eight in the 35th over after left-arm spinner Ashmead Nedd had ripped through the innings with an excellent spell of three for 33 from his 10 overs.But eventual Man-of-the-Match Kristian Clarke, with an unbeaten 46 and Joey Field, 38 not out, displayed composure and maturity beyond their years in a record, unbroken ninth wicket stand of 86, to turn the game on its head and propel New Zealand to victory with two balls to spare.Left-arm spinner Ashmead Nedd celebrates one of his three wickets against New Zealand yesterday.Clarke belted three fours and a six off 42 deliveries while Field faced 58 balls and counted three fours. With the pressure growing, West Indies’ fielding fell apart and discipline left their bowling, and New Zealand capitalised to whittle down a required asking rate from nearly 11, by taking 14 runs from both the 47th and 48th overs and another 10 from the 49th over.West Indies missed a big moment off the last ball of the 49th when Field raced back to the striker’s end for a second run but wicketkeeper Leonardo Julien failed to gather the return which would have found the batsman short of his ground.With a manageable seven runs needed off the last over bowled by seamer Nyeem Young, Clarke scrambled a single off the first ball before Field struck a sweetly-timed straight boundary off the next ball. Another sharp single left the scores tied and Clarke carved the fourth ball – a full length delivery – to the cover boundary to break the Windies’ hearts.New Zealand had earlier gotten 33 from Simon Keene, 32 from wicketkeeper Quinn Sunde while Fergus Lellman struck 29 and opener Rhys Mariu, 26, in a stuttering start to their run chase.Fast bowlers Joshua James (2-45) and Matthew Forde (2-64) claimed two wickets apiece to help give West Indies the early advantage. Left-hander Kirk McKenzie had earlier perished agonisingly short of triple figures for 99 as the previously unbeaten West Indies, opting to bat first, were dismissed in the 48th over.Kevlon Anderson chipped in with 33 and Antonio Morris, 31, but the Windies declined from a promising 183 for three in the 36th over to lose their last seven wickets for 55 runs in a swift collapse.Clarke was again at the forefront of New Zealand’s success, snaring four for 25 from 7.5 overs of pace while left-arm spinner Jesse Tashkoff (2-35) and seamer Field (2-52) picked up two wickets apiece. The Windies’ start was less than enterprising, losing captain Kimani Melius (17) and Julien (4) cheaply to be 32 for two in the 10th over before McKenzie anchored two half-century stands to restore the innings.First, he added 78 for the third wicket with Anderson who struck four fours off 46 balls, and then posted 73 for the third wicket with Morris who blasted four fours and a six in a 32-ball cameo.All told, McKenzie blasted 11 fours and three sixes in a 104-ball knock before he was forced to retire hurt with cramp at the end of the 42nd over.However, the slide had started when Morris fell lbw to Clarke in the 36th over and in the following over with a single run added, Young holed out to mid off trying to attack Tashkoff. Wickets continued to tumble and not even the return of McKenzie at the fall of the ninth wicket could rally the innings, as he played on to the first ball he faced.West Indies struck early when Ollie White (0) tugged a short one from Forde to mid-wicket in the third over but Lellman and Mariu added 48 for the second wicket to stabilise the innings.New Zealand stumbled, however, losing three wickets for 15 runs as James accounted for both Lellman and Mariu before captain Tashkoff (6) gloved a pull off Young and was caught down the leg-side by Julien at 67 for four in the 16th over. Keene revived the innings, putting on 51 for the fifth wicket with Sunde before adding a further 30 for the sixth with Beckham Wheeler-Greenall (16).And New Zealand were finding their groove when Nedd ripped through the innings with three wickets in the space of 28 balls, as the run chase spiraled and the Windies took command.West Indies then squandered the perfect chance to drive home the advantage when they put down Field on 11 at mid off in the 43rd over off James.last_img read more
