(AP Photo/Francisco Seco)MOSCOW — Cristiano Ronaldo made European soccer history by scoring in Portugal’s 1-0 win over Morocco on Wednesday, a result that makes the North African team the first to be eliminated from the World Cup.Ronaldo’s header in the fourth minute was his fourth goal at this year’s tournament, and his 85th for his country. That moved him ahead of Hungary great Ferenc Puskas and alone in second place worldwide behind Ali Daei’s 109 goals for Iran.ADVERTISEMENT Ronaldo’s four goals tops the individual scoring chart at the World Cup. Buoyed by his hat trick against Spain on Friday, including a spectacular free kick late in the game, Ronaldo scored against Morocco with his first meaningful touch early in the match.He was too strong for marker Manuel Da Costa and found space in the goalmouth to meet Joao Moutinho’s cross after a corner.Ronaldo had two more free kick chances, though each from less than 20 yards (meters). He could not get the ball up and over a solid wall of defenders on either occasion.Benatia, a rugged defender who plays for Juventus, led the efforts to stop Ronaldo. His hard tackles from behind, however, earned him a yellow card.GROUP DYNAMICSADVERTISEMENT Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew In fight vs corruption, Duterte now points to Ayala, MVP companies as ‘big fish’ PVL: BanKo-Perlas ousts Iriga-Navy Christopher Tolkien, son of Lord of the Rings author, dies aged 95 MOST READ Cloudy skies over Luzon due to amihan Portugal looks well set to advance to the round of 16 while Morocco will certainly be going home.Portugal now has four points and leads Group B ahead of the late match between Iran and Spain.The Portuguese will face Iran in their final match on Monday in Saransk.KEYS TO SUCCESSRonaldo was a clinical finisher and also one of Portugal’s best defenders. His headed clearances helped out a back line that seems vulnerable to corners and free kicks despite the height of veteran center backs Pepe and Jose Fonte.Morocco, playing in its first World Cup in 20 years, linked play neatly through midfield but relied on set-pieces for its clearest chances — a growing theme at this year’s tournament.Its clearest shooting chances fell to a defender, Benatia, who could not keep them on target.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Jury of 7 men, 5 women selected for Harvey Weinstein rape trial The Portugal forward celebrated his goal with a trademark run and soaring leap toward the corner flag at the Luzhniki Stadium.Morocco lost 1-0 for the second straight Group B match and is out of contention for a spot in the next round.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownThe North Africans had several chances against Portugal, nearly all from set pieces, and three of them came in a five-minute spell early in the second half.

Huskies put Junior Canucks on the brink with thrilling overtime victory

first_img“Defence wins championships, period,” Alexander explained emphatically. “You can have the fanciest offence you want but if you can’t play in your own zone at this time of year then it’s all for nothing. We’ve struggled with it here and there especially with consistency in our own zone but these last two games it’s been great. That’s a big testament to some of the older guys especially on the back end.”Scoring for the Huskies were Blair Karasiuk and Josh Robinson.Game three goes tomorrow night in Dawson Creek at 8 p.m. “We just had to keep sticking to the game plan tonight,” he said. “Both goalies played great out there. It was a really nice night if you were a fan of goaltending. They made some great saves; they made some timely saves. That’s your prototypical playoff hockey game. It was hard work and it was a tight game.”The gradual momentum swing was evident in the game especially in the third period when the Canucks had minimal offensive production. Alexander added that was a byproduct of the Huskies continuing to push the tempo of the game and they were eventually rewarded for it.“As they game went on we got stronger and it definitely showed,” he stated. “We started to run away with the shots a bit there at the end. That’s a testament to the work. We just kept setting the table, setting the table, setting the table and then finally someone brought the dinner and we were able to capitalize on it.”There were times throughout the season where defensive lapses had hindered the Huskies but the past two games have been A+ efforts from the guys patrolling the blue line.Advertisement Win or lose the home town fans definitely got their money’s worth at the North Peace Arena Friday night. The Fort St. John Huskies and Dawson Creek Junior Canucks clashed for game two of their first round NWJHL playoff series and those in attendance were treated to a thrilling game as the Huskies came from behind to tie the game in the third period, before eventually winning the game early in overtime 2-1.Fort St. John struggled out of the gate with some sloppy play as they tried to find their skating legs. Dawson Creek made them pay as they jumped out to a 1-0 lead and also held a 6-1 advantage in shots at the time of the goal. Falling behind seemed to spark the Huskies as by the time the period ended they had closed the gap in shots to 9-7.The early stages of the second period was spent by both teams trying to get a read on one another, and as was the case in the opening period the Huskies began to apply more pressure as time went on. Canucks goalie Josh Round stood on his head to preserve the one goal lead and Dawson Creek held a slim margin in shots at 15-14.- Advertisement -Not wanting to go back on the road with the series tied the Huskies were finally able to break through. On a faceoff in Canucks territory after an icing call, Blair Karasiuk found the puck on his stick and wired it into the goal to tie the game. The third period was dominated by the Huskies as they limited Dawson Creek to only two shots on goal, however they were unable to get the go ahead goal.The go ahead goal would come however in the extra frame. A scramble in front of Round resulted in Huskies forward Josh Robinson having the puck with an open cage staring at him and he made no mistake 2:13 into overtime to put the Huskies up 2-0 in the best of five series.After the game assistant coach Todd Alexander said the play of both goalies in the game allowed the Huskies to stick with what they like to do on the ice, and he tipped his cap the tenders as they made stellar saves throughout the contest.Advertisementlast_img read more

Concordia rattles La Verne relievers

first_img“The game got away from us a little bit on the mound,” said La Verne head coach Scott Winterburn, who scolded his players for about 10 minutes after the game. Concordia did all of its damage in the sixth with two outs. With a runner on first, submarine-style right-hander Craig Neu came in for La Verne and promptly hit two batters to load the bases and then allowed a ground-ball single to right by Concordia leadoff hitter Daniel Robertson to make it 4-1. Freshman right-hander Daryl Hall replaced Neu and was greeted by Fuentes, who slammed a 1-1 offering over the center-field wall. “We missed a couple of signs and we just did some things that aren’t characteristic of our club,” Winterburn said. “So we’re going to go back to the drawing board and see if we can iron that out.” La Verne starter Ryan Rose was effective in his 52/3 innings, holding Concordia hitless in the first three innings before tiring in the fifth. (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2239 IRVINE – Shaky pitching left the University of La Verne baseball team out in the cold on Wednesday afternoon, as the Leopards continued a poor start to their season with a 9-1 loss at Concordia. Concordia (4-0), the NAIA’s No. 11-ranked team, broke open the game with a big sixth inning against La Verne’s relievers. The Eagles batted around and scored five runs in the inning, including a grand slam by right fielder Nick Fuentes. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Paulinho admits he could quit Tottenham for Brazil return

first_img1 Paulinho in action for Tottenham Tottenham midfielder Paulinho has admitted that he is considering a return to Brazil after falling down the Spurs pecking order.Paulinho arrived from Corinthians in a £17m move in July of last year and enjoyed an encouraging first season in north London, scoring six goals in 30 Premier League appearances.But he has struggled to establish himself under new manager Mauricio Pochettino this term and his first-team involvement has dried up.The 26-year-old has played just 29 minutes of League action this season with six further appearances coming in the Europa League and Capital One Cup combined.Paulinho has been linked with a return to Brazil, with his former club Corinthians supposedly keen on bringing him back.And now he has fanned the flames of that speculation after returning to the country for a film premiere in Sao Paulo on Tuesday night.After the film, he told Lancenet: “I am always honest, players always wants to play.“I am participating in only a few games at Tottenham. Maybe now is the opportunity to go back.“There is interest from Brazilian clubs, but nothing concrete yet. I’m glad to have a recognition, I feel proud.“Tottenham invested a lot of money for me, but I can play or not, like any other player. I do not have to think about transferring, but any player is subject to transfers when the window opens.”last_img read more

first_imgTHE documentary-maker behind an award-winning film on how Donegal islanders were shafted by Europe has made a plea to people here to watch it – to get the message to our politicians.TG4 will have a special screening of A Turning Tide in the Life of Man this Sunday December 27 at 8.15pm on TG4 with English subtitles. The film retraces the origin of the global problems the small fishermen are facing today, the complexity of such political decisions and the consequences for the lives of small coastal communities, emanating from the implementation of the Salmon Ban and other EU Regulations over the years.Since 2006, islanders from the communities of Árainn Mhór Island, Inis Bo Finne and Tory Island, in Donegal, together with experts from around the world, have been working on common documents and actions that will help them to survive Government-led policies, and allowed them to participate in the writing of new reform of the fishing policy which was put in place in 2014 for all European countries.Lead by one fisherman’s voice, John O’Brien, the film follows John’s very personal journey with his family and friends from Árainn Mhór Island and Tory Island over eight years.The film sees their efforts to survive and their long quest to find answers to their questions; traveling, meeting with politicians, gathering together other islands communities from all around Europe, querying MEPs, working with International NGOs to understand the political process and convincing those who hold the power to join their fight and make a difference. Sharon Ni Cuilibin from Lugh Films in Falcarragh said: “Please tune in to watch it live (again, if you’ve seen it before) on TV and online worldwide for free and help us secure the highest possible ratings for the film.“We want to send a message to the politicians that this story matters, these lives matter, we are concerned for their livelihoods, their way of life, and we want the attitudes and actions of government to change.“Watching the film can be your act of citizenship.”The want you to Tweet during the screening @BealStoirme #turnthetide and like and leave your comments on our Facebook page here: your feedback/support in this way will help them to galvanise their efforts to inform politicians of this story, say the film-makers.In the film, as John gets closer to the European Parliament circumstances force him into a more important role. He becomes one of the few EU small fishermen representatives and advisor by default in the new reform process.Discovering that he’s only a little piece of a larger puzzle, for the first time, John has to envisage the bigger picture for himself and like the Members of the European Commission, John and his people also have to take into consideration, environmental, economic and social issues.Watch it tomorrow on TG4.FILM MAKER PLEA: ‘WATCH OUR MOVIE ABOUT DONEGAL ISLAND FISHERMEN TO GET MESSAGE TO POLITICIANS’ was last modified: December 27th, 2015 by John2Share 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:A Turning Tide in the Life of ManTG4last_img read more
