Hughes fumes at ‘soft’ penalty

first_imgStoke manager Mark Hughes felt referee Anthony Taylor “bought” Raheem Sterling’s attempt to win a crucial penalty in his side’s 5-3 defeat at home to Liverpool. Having trailed 2-0 to Ryan Shawcross’ own goal and Luis Suarez’s 21st of the season, the Potters hauled themselves level at half-time through two former Reds Peter Crouch and Charlie Adam. However, Hughes felt Sterling went down under minimal contact from Marc Wilson to win a spot-kick which Steven Gerrard converted. Suarez added his second, Jon Walters replied before Daniel Sturridge ended a seven-week spell out with an ankle sprain to add the fifth right at the end. “Soft, easy – any adjective you like really,” said Hughes of the penalty. “When players go down in the box the referee is going to have difficult decisions, we all know that, but I don’t know whether that penalty would’ve been given at the other end. “The reaction of the player himself, he immediately looks towards the referee, is a give-away and the fact there are about 3,000 Liverpool fans behind that goal as well reacting to it means unfortunately the referee has bought it and it’s a poor decision. “There was a hint of handball (by Sterling) and he has been given the benefit of the doubt. “Given that we had come back from 2-0 down in the first half and got back on level terms I thought the momentum was with us and half-time came at a bad time as we were very much in the ascendency. “Almost immediately the game is taken away from us once again. We had to show real character and determination to pick ourselves up from so many set-backs. “I thought in terms of the performance I was really pleased but in key moments, and when you need things to go well for you you need to do the correct things at the right time they went against us. “We needed to deal with key moments better defensively and we conceded a penalty and an own goal with a shot which was heading for the corner flag. “It was a difficult day in terms of what went against us but I thought we showed real determination to keep on going because that augurs well for big games coming up.” Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers insisted Sterling was not the type of player to dive and rejected suggestions the 19-year-old could earn himself an unwanted reputation like a number of other Premier League players. “I don’t think he’s in that bracket. Goodness me he is a young boy who gets kicked left, right and centre and we got good fortune,” he said. “The defender doesn’t make contact with the ball but does the man and Raheem is running at such speed. “He is a fearsome competitor and he is not that type. He has had many decisions gone against him in his young career, ones where he has had dead-cert penalties. “I don’t think he has gone down easily. Contact was minimal but the pace he is going at puts him over.” Rodgers was delighted to see Suarez and Sturridge resume their formidable partnership, which produces a goal from one or the other every 56 minutes on average, to lift his side back into the top four. “Daniel has pace and power on the counter-attack and both combined very well,” he added after the Reds’ first league win at Stoke in just over 29 years. “Both are outstanding talents – you can see that from their link-up for both Luis’ second goal and Dan’s movement for Luis to play him in (for the final goal) was exceptional in such a short space. “Sturridge showed great skill and awareness to get up and have two touches to finish the game (after Jack Butland had brilliantly stopped his initial effort). “To get the fifth goal here really shows that threat we have.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Saints, Peat agree on 5-year contract

first_imgSaints, Peat agree on 5-year contract Share This StoryFacebookTwitteremailPrintLinkedinRedditNEW ORLEANS (AP) — Saints free agent left guard Andrus Peat has agreed to a five-year contract keeping him in New Orleans and virtually ensuring the club’s entire 2019 starting offensive line would remain intact for the coming season.Saints general manager Mickey Loomis announced the agreement Friday and disclosed the length of the deal.A person familiar with the contract said it is worth a total of $57.5 million — an average of $11.5 million per season. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because financial terms have not been released. Associated Press “I’ve definitely settled in at the left guard, but always I’m ready to have versatility,” Peat said. “Whatever the team needs me to do I feel like I’ll do that to contribute to the overall success of the team.”Peat has been selected to the Pro Bowl each of the past two seasons and has contributed to an offense that has averaged an NFL-best 394.8 yards per game during the past five seasons.An Arizona native and son of former NFL lineman Todd Peat, he started at guard in all 10 regular-season games in which he played last season. He missed six games with a fractured forearm but was back in time for New Orleans’ regular-season finale and lone playoff game.“I’m healthy now and just looking forward to this next season and just improving from last year, really,” Peat said.Peat’s return puts all five 2019 starters on the offensive line — Peat, left tackle Terron Armstead, center Erik McCoy, right guard Larry Warford and right tackle Ryan Ramczyk — under contract for the coming season. Peat said he preferred to return to that group over joining four new linemates with another club. “It’s really important that we build that continuity,” Peat said. “I’ve been playing next to Terron my whole career. Larry, Ryan and Erik, they’re all really talented and great players. So, I’m excited to get back and keep building with this group.”___ More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFL,Tampa Bay Lightning advance to face Dallas Stars in Stanley Cup finals, beating New York Islanders 2-1 in OT in Game 6 March 20, 2020 “There was some interest from other teams,” Peat said on a conference call.“Ever since I was drafted here, I wanted to play my whole career with the Saints. So, I’m just really excited to be able to continue my career here with the Saints.”The Saints drafted the 6-foot-7, 316-pound Peat 13th overall in 2015 out of Stanford, where he was a two-year starter at left tackle.Peat’s versatility has been useful to New Orleans, which converted him to a guard but has continued to also use him as a substitute tackle as needed.Peat said he was not actively seeking an opportunity to play more at tackle and said other teams that explored signing him largely discussed keeping him as a guard. He did not specify which other teams shows interest in him.last_img read more

Brathwaite heroics in vain as Kiwis beat Windies in classic

first_imgMANCHESTER, England (CMC) – A stunning maiden international hundred by Carlos Brathwaite just narrowly failed to get West Indies over the line as they suffered an agonising five-run defeat to New Zealand in a tantalising finish here yesterday, to all but end their hopes of progressing any further in the ICC World Cup.In an innings which revived memories of his six-hitting feat which won West Indies the T20 World Cup in India three years ago, the broad-shouldered all-rounder smashed 101 off 82 deliveries to haul his side off the ropes at 167 for seven in the 27th over, and make them believe again in their pursuit of 292 for victory.Opener Chris Gayle had earlier smashed 87 off 84 balls while fellow left-hander Shimron Hetmyer stroked 54 from 45 deliveries, before both fell in a devastating period for West Indies which saw five wickets tumble for 22 runs in the space of 29 balls.Brathwaite, composed and determined from the first ball, then stepped up heroically, punching nine fours and five sixes, as he put on 47 for the eighth wicket with Kemar Roach (14), a further 34 for the ninth wicket with Sheldon Cottrell (15) and 41 for the final wicket with Oshane Thomas who failed to score.The pivotal moment of the late stages came, however, with West Indies needing 33 runs from the last three overs. Brathwaite pummelled 25 runs from the 48th over from seamer Matt Henry – including three sixes – which left the Caribbean side with just eight runs to get from the final two overs.At that point, a Windies victory appeared straightforward once Brathwaite remained on strike but seamer Jimmy Neesham produced a superb penultimate over which saw Brathwaite manage to scrape just two runs – off the fourth delivery – which carried him to three figures.With six needed for victory, Brathwaite attempted to clear long-on with the final ball of the over but managed only to find Trent Boult on the ropes instead, crushing West Indies’ hopes of a much needed win.Left-arm seamer Boult was the best bowler with four for 30 while Ferguson finished with three for 59.The defeat left West Indies still languishing in seventh place in the standings on three points with one win and four defeats in six outings.With three games remaining, West Indies’ hopes of a semi-final spot now lie in as much complicated maths as it does in empty optimism.They can only end on a maximum nine points, and will now need help from unbeaten India who lie third on nine points, and tournament favourites England, who are fourth on eight points, in order to get into the top four.In contrast, New Zealand moved back to the summit of the standings on 11 points, and have all but made certain of their spot in the semi-finals.Left-arm speedster Sheldon Cottrell had earlier claimed a terrific four-wicket haul but was outdone by a magnificent hundred from captain Kane Williamson as New Zealand recovered from a rocky start to post a respectable 291 for eight off their 50 overs, after being asked to bat at Old Trafford.Cottrell, who finished with four for 56 from his 10 overs, knocked over openers Martin Guptill and Colin Munro both without scoring in the day’s first over, to leave the Black Caps stunned on seven for two.But Williamson struck 148 off 154 balls to post his 13th One-Day International hundred while veteran Ross Taylor hit 69 off 95 deliveries, to ensure their side’s revival.Cottrell gave the Windies a wonderful start when he produced a full-length ball to claim Guptill lbw courtesy of DRS off the first ball of the day, and then yorked Munro spectacularly with the fifth ball to put the Caribbean side on top.Williamson and Taylor rebuilt the innings through a 160-run, third-wicket stand as the unbeaten Black Caps regained their composure and took control of the contest.While Williamson struck 14 fours and a six, Taylor counted seven fours before failing to clear Jason Holder at mid-off and falling in the 35th over to Gayle’s part-time off-spin.Williamson then anchored a fourth-wicket stand of 43 with Tom Latham (12) and a 41-run, fifth-wicket partnership with Jimmy Neesham whose 28 came from 23 deliveries, to keep the innings together.Cottrell returned to claim Latham in the 42nd over before getting the prized wicket of Williamson in the 47th over, top-edging a skyer to wicketkeeper Shai Hope running around.Tasked with a challenging but attainable run chase, West Indies had a nightmare start when Hope played on to Boult in the third over for one and Nicholas Pooran (1) top-edged an ill-advised hook at the same bowler, and was taken by wicketkeeper Latham in the seventh over.Gayle belted eight fours and half-dozen sixes and Hetmyer, eight fours and a six, as they put on 122 for the third wicket to pull West Indies out of trouble at 20 for two.Cruising towards victory on 142 without further loss, West Indies suffered a massive setback when Hetmyer was bowled by fast bowler Lockie Ferguson at the start of the 23rd over missing a pull at a slower ball, and Holder feathered a tentative push and was caught at the wicket off the very next delivery.In sight of a 26th ODI hundred, Gayle then needlessly holed out in the deep off seamer Colin de Grandhomme at the end of the 24th over, as the wheels came off the innings.NEW ZEALAND inningsM.

Albion cricket academy a huge success

first_imgPRESIDENT of the Berbice Cricket Board (BCB), Hilbert Foster, urged the 43 graduates of the Albion Community Centre Cricket Club’s annual cricket academy, last Saturday, to uphold the high tradition of the prestigious club.The club, which was founded over 60 years ago, has a very high reputation of producing top class players for Berbice, Guyana and West Indies.Foster spoke at length of the importance of education and pleaded with the attentive cricketers to stay in school, to obtain an educational background, since in today’s modern world, all sportsmen and sportswomen are expected to deal with the media, sponsors, agents and the general public.“National talent would only take you so far while an educational background would open doors of opportunities off the field,’ he stated.Foster also urged them to develop a culture of hard work, discipline and dedication, respect for the elderly and a love of making a positive difference in the lives of those less fortunate.He pledged the full support of his administration for the development of the game at the junior level and announced that in 2019, the BCB would host tournaments at the Under-13, U-15, U-17, U-19, U-21 and U-23 levels. Numerous developmental programmes are also being organized, including the Dr Tulsi Dyal Singh Coaching Programme and Annual Cricket Academy.Foster hailed the outstanding leadership of the Albion Cricket Club.Meanwhile, Foster handed over trophies, medals, cricket balls, educational materials, scorebooks to the Albion Club. Additionally, the BCB boss handed out three special prizes to three players of the academy. Young Berbice player Damian Cecil, whom Foster described as a future West Indies player, received a pair of batting pads. Most Disciplined Player N. Shiwpersaud received two special prizes, while Most Promising Player Tameshwar Mohamed carried home an educational package and a bicycle.The Albion Cricket Club has produced five Test cricketers in Sew Shivnarine, Narsingh Deonarine, Sewnarine Chattergoon, Devendra Bishoo and Veerasammy Permaul.last_img read more

Regal Masters cop Trophy Stall trophy after returning to winners’ row

first_imgAFTER suffering defeats in two recent four-team tournaments, Regal Masters returned to winners’ row in emphatic fashion, registering a comprehensive nine-wicket defeat over Ariel in last Sunday’s final of another competition, played at the Ogle Community Centre ground, East Coast Demerara.The tournament, sponsored by Trophy Stall and being used as preparations for Orlando Cup 3 to be staged in March, saw Regal Masters make light work of Ariel Masters in a lop-sided final.Set 103 for victory after limiting Ariel Masters to 102 all out in their allotted 20 overs, Regal Masters rushed to the required total in 10.4 overs with opener Uniss Yusuf and Mahesh Chunilall leading the way with 41 and 40 not out respectively.Man-of-the-match Yusuf spanked three fours and four sixes from 20 balls before he was dismissed with victory in sight. Chunilall’s knock contained one four and three sixes. The other not-out batsman was Eon Abel (seven).Earlier, after being inserted, Ariel Master lost wickets at regular intervals with P. Gossai being the standout with a top score of 33 which included two fours and two sixes. Skipper Mahendra Hardyal was his team’s best bowler with three for 33 from his four overs while there were two wickets each for Roy Persaud and Tyrone Sanasie for 17 and 24 runs respectively.The semi-final clash saw Regal Masters inflict a 10-wicket thrashing on Success Masters who could muster only 84 for nine in their allotted 20 overs.  It was once more the Yusuf and Chunilall show as Regal Masters raced to 86 without loss in 8.3 overs, thereby winning by 10 wickets.The consistent Yusuf slammed two fours and six sixes in his fine knock of 51 off 27 balls while Chunilall counted one four and three sixes in his 29 off 20 balls.Success Masters were undermined by a masterful spell of five for seven in four overs from Khalid Haslim while Tyrone Sanasie took two for 21.In the other semi-final Ariel Masters got the better of Fishermen.
