Young Cubs pull through

first_imgThe Loyola High of Los Angeles boys’ soccer team is used to deep postseason runs, but as Joe MacMillan was reminded before Saturday’s Southern Section Div. I playoff opener, this year’s version of the Cubs has little playoff experience. MacMillan, a senior and one of the few returnees from lastseason’s Div. II runner-up, was told by his coach before the game that he needed to be a leader and help keep his teammates relax as they entered the foreign territory of the postseason. MacMillan followed through by scoring the only goal of the game in a 1-0 victory over visiting Westlake, advancing fourth-seeded Loyola to Wednesday’s second round. MacMillan knocked in a back-door shot in the 62ndminute on a play set up by a throw-in from Conor Maher deep in Westlake territory. “We needed one,” MacMillan said. “That’s all I was thinking. I wanted to take some stress off the team. … We definitely had some nerves out there today. We just have to remember it’s one game at a time and each player has to do his part and not try to do too much.” The Cubs were enouraged by the way they played after taking the lead. “The second part of the second half we settled in and played much better,” Loyola coach Chris Walter said. “We’re a young team. We don’t have a lot of playoff experience, so it took us a long time to get settled in.” Cubs goalkeeper Kevin Klasila was in peak form from the start, shutting down any potential Westlake threats, including a free kick from near the top of the box in the 69thminute. The shutout was the 19th of the season for Loyola (22-6-3), which has allowed just one goal in its past 11 games. The Cubs’ victory ended a late-season surge by Westlake (13-10-2) and marked the second year in a row the Warriors were eliminated by Loyola. Westlake started the season 7-9-1, but went undefeated in its final six games of the regular season to earn a playoff berth as the Marmonte League’s fourth-place representative, then advanced through the wild-card round with a win over Cabrillo of Long Beach on Wednesday. center_img Loyola, which has reached the Div. II finals the past threeyears, faces two-time defending Div. I champion Damien of La Verne in the second round. The Spartans, who advanced by edging Palmdale 2-1 in overtime, tied the Cubs 1-1 when they met early in the season. “It doesn’t matter who we face,” MacMillan said. “We control our own destiny.” heather.gripp@dailynews.com (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

VIEWPOINT: ‘THE LONGEST NIGHT…ALL CHANGE BUT ALL REMAINS THE SAME’

first_imgVIEWPOINT: BY MARK McCOLLUM, VOICE OF OLDER PEOPLE DONEGALOn this day, the 7th of February the feast of Blessed Eugenia Smet, the birthday of Charles Dickens and Eddie Izzard… and looking to the future, perhaps historically more of greater significance a day of revisions and Reconstruction re-balancing of fiscal to sovereign debt and of liquidation of banks, payment or non payment of promissory notes to ECB/IMF what a glorious day in the life of Ireland ….It’s all so much window dressing and appears to amount to no more than rearranging the deckchairs on the Titanic, all change but all remains the same…. and there is nothing like signing legislation onto the statute book at 3:30am in the bar of the Dail. With economists and political pundits clambering and salivating to inform us how ‘Positive and significant’ or ‘damming and detrimental’ (delete which every you deem the most appropriate) thids ‘bold’/ ‘misguided’ will be for the Country; what will it mean in reality for the average man or woman struggling to scrape a living on this rock… the stark reality is that despite all the headlines, rhetoric, alleged informed opinions, colum inches and air time devoted to this hastily contrived situation nothing will change for struggling people of Ireland… the situation was bad yesterday… and despite of the all night sittings of the Dail and Seanand… it is equally as bad today… and will be the same tomorrow… all change… but all remains the same…Our leaders have to get a grip on the reality of the situation for the average person trying to get by and do their best in these abysmal circumstances, they have to stop procrastinating and dithering and actually do what they are in power to do… lead and make decisive well thought through decisions for the benefit of everyone, now, and in the long term. It appears we are creating an unsustainable burden of debt that will now be passed to the next generation; is that the future we want for our children and grandchildren, shackled by the debt burden created by speculators and corruption.The reactionary improvised policies and ‘make it up as we go along’ of this arrogant and disconnected government has to stop, they have to reconnect with the people of the country and learn that the actions and decisions they make now will resonate long into the future, and history will be the judge of their leadership, wisdom or lack thereof.  VIEWPOINT: ‘THE LONGEST NIGHT…ALL CHANGE BUT ALL REMAINS THE SAME’ was last modified: February 7th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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:VIEWPOINT: ‘THE LONGEST NIGHT…ALL CHANGE BUT ALL REMAINS THE SAME’last_img read more

Brazil women’s soccer team coach Vadao sacked after World Cup loss

first_imgBrazil have parted ways with Vadao, the coach of their women’s football team, the country’s football confederation said on Monday.”After a year and 10 months, following his second stint with the CBF, the coach Oswaldo Alvarez, (aka) Vadao, is no longer in charge of the Brazilian women’s team,” the CBF said in a statement.Vadao, who previously coached the team for two years from 2014, was removed just four weeks after Brazil were knocked out the World Cup by France.His team had lost their previous nine games before the tournament but performed well enough to reach the last 16 where they were beaten 2-1 by the hosts after extra-time.Under Vadao’s tutelage, they reached the semi-finals of the 2016 Olympic tournament in Rio and won two Copas America and a Pan American Games title.”The CBF is working to define the name of a new coach for the women’s team in as short a time period as possible,” it added.Read more | Real Madrid is trying to sell Gareth Bale, I have not disrespected anybody: Zinedine ZidaneAlso see:last_img read more

He’s a role model, an example.“He is the best in the world. I’m excited to play against him in the final.“It’s the game of my life. It’s going to be difficult, but we have a chance of beating Real Madrid.”While Luan is relishing the opportunity to lock horns with Ronaldo, he admits that it was the 32-year-old’s namesake and a Barcelona legend that he looked up to growing up.He added: “My idols were Ronaldo Nazario and Ronaldinho.”Both of those Brazilian icons graced the grandest of stages in Spain, with Real and Barca, and it could be that Luan follows in their illustrious footsteps at some stage in the near future.last_img read more

Report: Atalanta 3 Juventus 0

first_imgJuventus’ hopes of a fifth successive domestic double were extinguished after they were knocked out of the Coppa Italia by Atalanta in a 3-0 quarter-final defeat that marked their first domestic loss of the season and saw Massimiliano Allegri sent off.The Bianconeri went into Wednesday’s tie in Bergamo on the back of an extremely unconvincing performance in a 2-1 Serie A win over Lazio that sent them 11 points clear at the top.And they were underwhelming again at the Stadio Atleti Azzurri d’Italia as they were undone by an Atalanta side that is the most prolific in Serie A, having scored 47 goals. Article continues below Editors’ Picks ‘There is no creativity’ – Can Solskjaer get Man Utd scoring freely again? ‘Everyone legged it on to the pitch!’ – How Foden went from Man City superfan to future superstar Emery out of jail – for now – as brilliant Pepe papers over Arsenal’s cracks What is Manchester United’s ownership situation and how would Kevin Glazer’s sale of shares affect the club? Gian Piero Gasperini’s men dominated from the outset and Timothy Castagne’s 37th-minute strike and Duvan Zapata’s 19th goal of the season proved enough to set up a semi-final with Fiorentina, with the frustration that fuelled Allegri’s dismissal after the second goal increased late on when a defensive mix up allowed Zapata to double his tally as their dominance of the competition ended.Atalanta will have been buoyed by their stirring comeback against Roma on Sunday and Alejandro Gomez forced Wojciech Szczesny to turn behind with a fine effort from outside the box.The hosts saw Josip Ilicic forced off through injury while Juve were dealt a significant blow when Giorgio Chiellini motioned to the bench that he could not continue.It was his replacement, Joao Cancelo, one of the heroes of Juve’s fightback at Lazio at the weekend, who was at fault for the opener. Cancelo was dispossessed by Castagne, who then surged towards the edge of the box and bent an effort beyond Szczesny and into the bottom-right corner.And 125 seconds later Szczesny was beaten again in stunning fashion as the in-form Zapata turned and fired a fierce effort inside the Poland international’s near-post, with a furious Allegri sent from the dugout in the aftermath after an exchange with the fourth official.Juve improved after the interval and Daniele Rugani skimmed the woodwork with a header but they offered little thereafter and a terrible error by Mattia De Sciglio allowed Zapata to round Szczesny for his second as Allegri watched forlornly on from the stands.FT: Our Coppa Italia adventure comes to an end.#AtalantaJuve #FinoAllaFine #ForzaJuve pic.twitter.com/PTal3UxsBS— JuventusFC (@juventusfcen) January 30, 2019What does it mean? – Juve invincible no moreWhile a first domestic loss for Juve is unlikely to provide hope for those vainly pursuing them in the title race, their inability to find the net and their sloppy play at the back will provide plenty of encouragement to an Atletico Madrid team that is extremely talented at both ends of the pitch ahead of their Champions League last 16, first leg next month.Zapata reaches 20-goal markThough Zapata was aided by some questionable goalkeeping from Szczesny and some ponderous play from De Sciglio, the clinical manner in which he dispatched his double was indicative of a forward who has been one of the best in European football this season and now has 20 goals in all competitions.Cancelo’s Bergamo blunderPivotal to their revival in Rome, Cancelo’s performance could not have been more contrasting to the one he produced at the Stadio Olimpico. He dallied on the ball for the opener and did more to hinder Juve’s cause than help it on an evening he will want to quickly forget.What’s next?The visit of Parma is unlikely to provide a stumbling block for Juve in their seemingly inevitable march to the Scudetto. Seventh-placed Atalanta visit Cagliari as they push for the top four. read morelast_img read more
