Saints heap more misery on Royals

first_imgAny remaining hope Reading had of beating the drop appeared to be extinguished as Nigel Adkins’ first home match at the helm ended in a 2-0 defeat to former club Southampton. Press Association Goals from Jay Rodriguez and Adam Lallana proved the difference at the Madejski Stadium as Saints ran out comfortable winners, condemning the bottom-placed Royals to a seventh successive defeat. The result leaves the Berkshire side seven points adrift of safety with just six matches remaining, making an immediate return to the npower Championship increasingly likely. center_img Talk in the build-up was about Adkins exacting revenge on the club that so harshly disposed of his services 78 days ago, despite having led Saints to back-to-back promotions. However, after weathering the Royals’ early pressure, it was successor Mauricio Pochettino that enjoyed the spoils as Saints won a third successive Premier League match for the first time since 2003. As Reading upped the ante Adam Le Fondre was guilty of wasting a decent effort, blazing over after Saints’ attempts to clear a free-kick saw the ball land kindly for him. Adkins’ side returned to the attack and felt they should have had a penalty, only for referee Mike Jones to wave away the appeals that followed Jos Hooiveld’s challenge on Hal Robson-Kanu. The opener in the 34th minute owed as much to poor defending as fine attacking play, with an impressive team move ending with Rodriguez playing a one-two with Rickie Lambert before bundling home through Adam Federici’s legs. The Australian goalkeeper should have done better and was beaten by Rodriguez again, only for his strike to rattle the crossbar. Rodriguez has shone since Pochettino’s arrival on the south coast and that confidence was epitomised two minutes from half-time, showing incredible pace to burst past the Reading backline. Federici did well to save the striker’s right-footed shot when clear on goal, with Ramirez putting the follow up just wide. Much like the opening period, the hosts were again quicker to settle but failed to turn possession into clear-cut opportunities. That allowed Saints to return to the attack and, after Federici easily dealt with a tame Steven Davis effort, a fine driven Rodriguez cross just evaded Lambert at the far post. Le Fondre struck wide as Reading searched for an equaliser, although Saints were still looking dangerous themselves. After striking an audacious 25-yard effort wide, Rodriguez put through substitute Lallana to slot home at Federici’s near post to send the 2,216 visiting fans into raptures. It was no less than Pochettino’s side deserved but Reading thought they had pulled one back through Le Fondre. Boruc spilled the former Rotherham forward’s header but was adjudged to have stopped the ball crossing the line, much to the home fans’ annoyance. Saints substitute Guly do Prado should have found the target in stoppage time. last_img read more

Syracuse women’s basketball opponent preview: What to know about Washington

The Orange had never advanced past the Round of 32 before this year and is amid its best season in program history. SU has won 15 of its last 16 games, its only loss coming in the ACC championship game against then-No. 2 ranked Notre Dame.Here’s everything you need to know about Syracuse’s Final Four matchup with the Huskies.All-time series history: Syracuse leads 1-0Last time they played: The Orange got its only win ever against UW, 66-62, earlier this season on Nov. 27, 2015, in Las Vegas. SU led by as many as 21 late in the second quarter, but Washington clawed nearly all the way back. Led by 22 points (11 in fourth quarter) from Talia Walton, 19 from Kelsey Plum and 10 from Chantel Osahor, the Huskies made it close down the stretch.Syracuse went just 7-of-33 from behind the arc and was outrebounded 48-46. However, the Orange did force 19 turnovers compared to committing just eight, which led to SU outscoring the Huskies 13-4 on points off turnovers. With 3:47 left to play, Washington trailed by just one. But six free throws down the stretch helped seal the Syracuse victory.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Kelsey Plum did well, (Walton) did an excellent job making shots, getting rebounds and (Osahor), she’s been having a good season so far and in the tournament,” Syracuse’s Cornelia Fondren said Thursday, “so we just want to come out and compete hard like we’ve been doing all year.” The Washington report: Plum averages 26.2 points per game, which ranks third in the country. And throughout the postseason, the Huskies have also received contributions from Walton and Osahor, who average 16.2 and 10.3 points per game, respectively. It’s that three-pronged attack that has made UW dangerous in the postseason as it has knocked off Maryland, Kentucky and Stanford in its last three games.Washington averages 12.6 turnovers per game while Syracuse forces opponents to commit a nation-leading 24.2 turnovers per game. The last time they played, the Huskies committed 19 turnovers.“(Plum) is a great shooter. She’s a lefty that can get to the basket,” Fondren said. “She can shoot it pretty well, she can shoot the ball off the bounce, she’s been having a pretty good season so far.”Numbers to know:12.6 — Washington averages 12.6 turnovers per game while forcing 13.9 from its opponents.10 — In the fourth quarter of the game between Washington and Syracuse earlier this season, the Huskies outscored the Orange 24-14. Though UW didn’t pull off the comeback, it gave SU a scare down the stretch.0 — In the Nov. 27 matchup between these two teams, Syracuse shot 0-for-10 from behind the arc in the second half. The Orange has relied on the 3-pointer all season and may not be able to survive with a repeat performance like that in a half on Sunday.Player to watch: Chantel OsahorWhile all eyes will be on Plum as Washington’s go-to scorer, Osahor has flashed strong potential, especially recently. In UW’s Elite Eight win over Stanford, Osahor scored 24 points. In the Sweet 16, she scored 19. In the Round of 32, she scored 20. Plum will garner the attention, but the 6-foot-2 Osahor has a stronger potential to get in the cracks of Syracuse’s 2-3 zone and exploit the high post. If she gives Washington a legitimate second threat to pair with Plum, the Orange will be in for a tough fight.

Beilstein: A bittersweet goodbye

first_imgI have only spent three semesters writing sports for The Badger Herald, and I sincerely wish I had spent more. After spending two semesters writing for the opinion section during my freshman and sophomore year, I decided I should try my hand at hopefully my future career.While I have acquired a number of skills, they are not comparable to the group of writers and community I have been exposed to. To my editors from last year, Eric Goldsobel and Nick Brazzoni, to this year’s, David Hayes and Ben Cross, and the countless other writers I have met, I am grateful to have known you. The Herald office offered me nothing but support, encouragement and guidance in my short time here.I enjoy looking back to the time when I did not know what to expect or how to exactly go about my duties, looking back to the nerves I felt when I interviewed my first athlete, looking back to the first game I covered and the satisfaction I felt when I saw my stories go online and to print. I thank the Herald for such a transition to where I am now as a sports journalist.Cross: Why Tony Romo deserves the respect of the massesFormer Dallas Cowboys quarterback and Wisconsin native Tony Romo leaves behind a high school, college and professional legacy few can Read…Though professors would advise against it for a journalist, I was able to become a fan of the teams and players I covered. I was able to see their lives as athletes and students. From interviews at practice, via phone or postgame, I gained an enormous appreciation and admiration for the athletes here at Wisconsin.Over the last three semesters, I have covered both the softball team and the women’s soccer team here at University of Wisconsin. For all four years, I have been a member in the marching band playing at football, volleyball, basketball and hockey games. These beats gave me the opportunity to view Wisconsin sports beyond what I would normally see.I was able to cover a Wisconsin women soccer team’s run all the way to the second round of the NCAA tournament and a player that now competes for the U.S. national team. I was also able to watch and cover a Wisconsin softball team grow from a team four games above .500 to a team that matched their previous season’s win total with nine games to play and a shot at the NCAA tournament.I would like to thank all the players and coaches who gave me the time to talk with them to better my stories: Kelsey Jenkins, Brooke Wyderski, Samantha Arents, Melanie Cross, Taylor Berry, Kaitlyn Menz, Sara Novak, Kirsten Stevens, Taylor-Paige Stewart, Chloe Miller, coach Yvette Healy, Coach Danielle Zymkowitz, Caitlyn Clem, Rose Lavelle, Sydney McGinnis, Micaela Powers, Kylie Schwarz, Dani Rhodes, Steph Fabry and Coach Paula Wilkins.Schreter: Romo turned out to be less of a success, more of a failureTony Romo, long time Dallas Cowboys’ Quarterback, has retired at the age of 36 to pursue a career in sports Read…I would also like to thank the sports contact for both teams, Kelli Grashel, for coordinating interviews and providing everything I needed to do my job.I look forward to moving on to another chapter, but I will never forget my time here.
