Bearkats Draw Norman for NCAA Regional

first_imgHUNTSVILLE – The NCAA Division I Men’s Golf championship field was announced on Wednesday afternoon with the Sam Houston State Bearkats being sent to Norman, Okla. for the regional tournament.The 54-hole tournament will be conducted May 14-16 at the Jimmie Austin OU Golf Club on the University of Oklahoma campus. It is one of six regional destinations as a precursor to the NCAA Championships, which will also be held in Oklahoma at Karsten Creek in Stillwater. “Well, we are excited. It’s the kind of golf we play,” Bearkat head coach Brandt Kieschnick said after the selection show. “It’s going to be windy and we are used to Bermuda. I was able to play there in college, so I feel like I know the course a little bit. But we would’ve played anywhere. We’re ready to go compete and we’re ready to have a chance to win.”The Bearkats are the No. 11 seed in the regional, a 14-team pool that also includes five individual medalists. The Sooners come in as the top seed in the regional, along with No. 2 Auburn, No. 3 Arkansas and No. 4 Florida State.Also in the field (in seeded order) are North Florida, Pepperdine, BYU, Virginia, San Diego State, Nevada, UMKC, Navy and Prairie View.“We see these guys all year. These are some great teams and we embrace that competition,” Kieschnick said. “We like to play against the best and we want to beat the best. Our guys want that and definitely respect the teams, but they know our good golf is as good as any.”The week will include 18 holes each day with the low five teams and the low individual not on those teams advancing to the NCAA Championships.“Our first thought was the wind, and we like wind,” Kieschnick said. “We think wind can separate and we like difficult, and it’s something we are used to. We play it in Texas, we played in it at conference. And we seem to play well in the wind each time we play.”Sam Houston earned its way into the field with a win at the Southland Conference Tournament at Stonebridge in McKinney and will be making their third appearance in the NCAA Tournament. The previous appearances came in 2014 (Auburn, Ala.) and 2015 (Bremerton, Wash.).“We met today and we are not going to make anything complex. We do the same things every day. We are back to the grind and did drills today and competed yesterday. So, we’re not going to make this bigger than it is. We’re just going to do the same stuff and get better at it. We’ve had a chance to win our last four tournaments and won two of them, and we have another chance here.”last_img read more

Farah feeling the love at the Rabbitohs

first_imgFarah added spice to his new side’s NRL season-opener against the Tigers by making it clear there was still lingering resentment between him and coach Jason Taylor.Addressing his tumultuous exit from Concord for the first time, he described his time under Taylor as “unhappy.”He had a chance to publicly extend an olive branch to Taylor, who won a power struggle to force out the NSW State of Origin rake, however refused to comment on their relationship.‌”I’m not going to talk about that, to be honest that’s in the past,” Farah said.Asked if there were hard feelings between him and Taylor, Farah again knocked back the chance to bridge the chasm, saying: “Again, I don’t want to talk about what happened there at the Tigers last year.”He said after two-and-a-half years of a very public showdown with Taylor and Tigers management, it was now clear a fresh start was what he sorely needed.As a Wests Tigers life member, premiership winner and former captain, Farah found it difficult to leave the club he had debuted for as a 19-year-old.”Last year was very difficult, 18 months before that was difficult too,” Farah said.”It wasn’t a happy environment for me so the time came I knew I had to move on.”From day one Souths were the club that really pursued me, guys like Sammy Burgess and Greg Inglis really went out of their way to make me feel welcome.”With what went on last year, and you kind of feel unwanted, you get the opposite end of the scale where you have the calibre of guys like Burgess and Inglis trying to convince you why they want you at their club. It was a really easy decision.”It sets up a Round 1 showdown between Farah and his Rabbitohs against the Tigers.Not only will it double as his first NRL appearance in his new colours, it promises to be imbued with a little bit of feeling.”I pencilled Round 1 in my diary because it’s going to be my first game for the club,” Farah said.”It makes it pretty easy and you’re making your debut for your club and it is going to be against my old club. That was going to happen, whether it be Round 1 or further down the track.”I’ve been around long enough and professional enough to treat it as just another game.”Winning’s going to give us two points, it’s not going to give me four competition points or six competition points. It’s not going to guarantee we’re going to win a grand final in October.”last_img read more

Region 5 RDC meeting disrupted again

first_imgAs the ongoing saga between members of the two political entities of the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) of Region Five (Mahaica-Berbice) continues, the nation’s national pledge has been caught up in the dispute. In an interview with Guyana Times on Saturday, Region Five Regional Chairman Vickchand Ramphal disclosed that last Thursday’s RDC meeting was disrupted once again.A section of the gathering at last Thursday’s disrupted meetingHe told this publication that only the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) Councillors, along with newly appointed Regional Executive Officer, Ovind Morrinson and his staff, stood for the recital of the national pledge.“For the national pledge, all of the Councillors of the PPP were standing there, the recently appointed REO and his staff stood up and they had recited the national pledge while Councillors from the [A Partnership for National Unity/Alliance For Change] APNU/AFC remain seated so they disrespected the national pledge,” the Chairman pointed out.“Mr Morrison had attended his first statutory meeting there. I had introduced him, I had welcomed him to the region and I had given him the opportunity to address the Council; however, the Councillors continued with their disrespectful behaviour and did not allow him although he was standing on the floor, and had entered his presentation but because of their disrespectfulness, he had to discontinue,” the Chairman expressed further.Ramphal opined that it is the duty of all citizens to honour the pledge.“They are more disrespectful now because every individual of this land should respect the pledge of this land despite their political affiliation, religion or race… they should have stood at the time when the national pledge was recited,” Ramphal surmised.He also indicated that he then asked to be excused and gave way for the Regional Vice Chairman, Rion Peters, to continue the meeting, but he was also disallowed from presiding.Guyana Times has learnt that the new REO had expected the meeting to move forward as he reportedly stated his intention to work with the RDC to advance the work of the region.Earlier this month, Ramphal had contended that because of the lack of monthly statutory meetings, there was a lack of transparency with regard to the RDC’s financial operations. He had stated that the lack of meetings was also affecting the degree to which there could be effective monitoring of projects that were awarded and he had made calls for former REO, Roderick Edinboro, to be clear on the region’s financial records.The issue that has led to the constant disruption of RDC meetings, stemmed from Councillors of the APNU/AFC demanding an apology from the Chairman, premised on claims that Ramphal had disrespected President David Granger by not showing up for an event on January 15, where the President commissioned two buses under the then Three ‘Bs’ initiative.Ramphal has however argued that he was never invited to the event, and as such, there was no need to apologise.Meanwhile, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo late last month expressed that Government should condemn what he described as “thuggery” at the Region Five RDC.“President Granger, who talks a lot about social cohesion and allowing local government organs to work, should look at what his Government is doing,” Jagdeo had pointed out.last_img read more

Pressure on Messi after Ronaldo scores again at World Cup

first_imgMessi’s teammates have rallied around their superstar captain after his spot-kick was saved in the 1-1 draw against minnows Iceland on Saturday.Messi is bearing the weight of expectations as Argentina seek a first World Cup trophy since 1986, desperate to crown his glittering career with a major international tournament success.However so far in Russia, Messi has been overshadowed by Ronaldo, who took his tournament goal tally to four on Tuesday with the winner in Portugal’s 1-0 defeat of Morocco, which condemned the Africans to an early exit.A defeat against the Luka Modric-led Croatians in Nizhny Novgorod could see Argentina, unthinkably, flirting with a first group stage exit since 2002.“We are all with him, he knows that he can count on the support of all of us more than ever,” said Argentina striker Paulo Dybala of Messi.“We are here to help him every moment, and of course we will be at his side,” Dybala added.– Croatia under a cloud –France’s forwards Olivier Giroud (L) and Antoine Griezmann take part in a training session in Ekaterinburg on June 20, on the eve of their Russia 2018 World Cup Group C match against Peru © AFP / Anne-Christine POUJOULATCroatia secured three points in their 2-0 win against Nigeria in their opening game but enter the match under a cloud.AC Milan striker Nikola Kalinic was sent home from Russia for reportedly refusing to come on as a substitute, though coach Zlatko Dalic claimed the AC Milan man had a back injury.Fancied France could only edge past Australia 2-1 courtesy of an Antoine Griezmann penalty and an own goal in their Group C opener but have vowed to ramp up the intensity against Peru in Yekaterinburg.“We took stock of what was done well or not so well and all agree that we will have to increase our physical intensity and improve our attitude in general,” said France vice-captain and central defender Raphael Varane.“Other teams (among the favourites) did not win or even lost. We won, but we know that there are things to improve on. We know what direction we need to go in.”The defeat to France mean the Socceroos are targeting a win against Denmark in Samara on Thursday to have a realistic chance of qualifying from the group stages.Denmark’s Christian Eriksen (L) and Andreas Christensen attend a training session in Vityazevo on June 18, during the Russia 2018 World Cup football tournament © AFP/File / Jonathan NACKSTRANDCaptain Mile Jedinak, who scored from the penalty spot against France, says improving on a disciplined performance and not obsessing over great Dane Christian Eriksen will be key against Denmark, who squeezed past Peru 1-0 in their opening match.“We know (Eriksen) is a fantastic player and obviously he’s got a huge role to play for them,” said Jedinak.“But we’re not trying to focus on that. We’ll definitely focus on them as whole and as a collective.”Wednesday’s other matches saw Spain edge past Iran 1-0 thanks to Diego Costa’s fortunate third goal in two matches which put them level at the top Group B with PortugalIran, who had a precious second-half equaliser ruled out for offside by VAR, lie just a point behind the Iberian pair and can still guarantee qualification for the knockout stages for the first time by beating Portugal on Monday.Uruguay knocked out Saudi Arabia Wednesday with a 1-0 win which confirmed the South Americans and hosts Russia as qualifiers from Group A with a game to spare.The result means an early exit for Mohammed Salah’s Egypt who will be heading to Volgograd airport along with the Saudis for a plane home after their clash in the historic city formerly known as Stalingrad on Monday.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Argentina’s Lionel Messi (L) and his teammates take part in a training session in Bronnitsy, near Moscow, on June 20, on the eve of their Russia 2018 World Cup Group D match against Croatia © AFP / JUAN MABROMATAVOLGOGRAD, Russian Federation, Jun 21 – Lionel Messi is under increased pressure to redeem himself when Argentina face Croatia in Thursday’s pivotal match after eternal rival Cristiano Ronaldo scored his fourth goal of the World Cup to send Morocco packing.France will be looking for a second World Cup Group C win against Peru Thursday while Australia need to bounce back from their heart-breaking defeat to Les Bleus against Denmark.last_img read more

HARPS HOPING TO ‘RAMBLE’ TO ANOTHER VICTORY AGAINST COBH

first_imgFinn Harps will hope to continue their good start to the season when they host Cobh Ramblers at Finn Park on Friday evening (kick-off 8.00pm).Harps have picked up four points from their opening two games of the season and have kept a clean sheet in both games. However, boss Ollie Horgan is refusing to get carried away and is expecting a tough task on Friday evening against the Cork men.“Cobh will be a huge task for us,” said Horgan. “They have great attacking threats proven by the number of goals they have scored last season and indeed this year so far. “Bobbi Donoghue and Martin Deady will need constant watching down the flanks. Damien O’Rourke has come in at centre half and will provide huge experience as well as problems to us at set pieces,” warned Horgan. “Even if we had a full panel to choose from, this game would be difficult so we know what lies ahead for us.”Horgan watched his side beat Shamrock Rovers ‘B’ at Tallaght Stadium last Sunday with four of his senior players absent, and he will have to do without them again this weekend.“Sean McCarron has suffered a fracture to his cheek bone – it was operated on Saturday last and he will be out for around 6 weeks,” confirmed Horgan. “Ciaran Coll was admitted to hospital last week with stomach and chest pains and timescale for his absence is up in the air a little pending results of tests. Kevin McHugh and Gareth Harkin have ongoing hamstring problems but we hope to have them back in a week or two.”However, Josh Mailey played his first game for Harps in the Ulster Senior League last Sunday and will come into contention for Friday’s game. Although Harps ran out comfortable 3-0 winners against Rovers, Horgan felt the game wasn’t as one sided as the scoreline suggests.“Obviously I was delighted to get a win, considering the number of players out injured,” said Horgan. But, I felt the score line flattered us a little as it could have gone either way until we scored the second goal.“Keeping a clean sheet away from home was pleasing as was the fact that we got a result without playing particularly well,” continued the Harps boss.Harps and Cobh played each other six times last season, including twice in the FAI Cup. Between them they scored a total of 26 goals in the six games with Harps winning on three occasions and Cobh just once. The two other games of which both were at Finn Park finished in draws – one in the league and one in the FAI Cup.~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ TEAM NEWSSuspended: None.Doubtful: None.Injured: Kevin McHugh (hamstring), Gareth Harkin (hamstring), Sean McCarron (fractured cheek), Ciaran Coll (chest).
