However, All Nigeria Soccer reports that the deal has been unable to go through as his international clearance has not been processed.Ibahadon is also reportedly wanted by a number of Championship clubs, including West Bromwich Albion, Birmingham City and Nottingham Forest.The teenager – a centre-back who can also play in midfield – was previously in the youth academy of Italian side Atalanta BC before moving to England for family reasons in 2018.Tags: Aston VillaNigeriaPaul IbahadonPremier LeagueWest Bromwich Albionlast_img read more

first_img Published on November 21, 2014 at 9:08 pm One-hundred minutes of play and a regular round of five penalty strokes wasn’t enough to decide a winner. Then Syracuse midfielder Alyssa Manley fired and scored on a sudden-death penalty stroke to send the Orange to the NCAA championship game.No. 4 Syracuse (18-5, 2-4 Atlantic Coast) beat North Carolina (19-4, 4-2 ACC) in a penalty shootout after the teams played to a 2-2 tie in regulation and two overtime periods on Friday. SU will now play for its first-ever NCAA national championship against  No. 3 Connecticut (19-2, 5-0 Big East) at 1 p.m. on Sunday. It was also be an opportunity for the SU field hockey team to capture the first-ever women’s national championship in school history. The Orange held UNC to no shots for nearly 16 minutes to start the match. The Tar Heels however got on the board with their first shot as forward Emma Bozek tipped the ball off her stick past SU goalie Jess Jecko on a penalty-corner shot.Syracuse was two minutes away from getting a shutout in the first half until Emma Russell scored her second goal of the NCAA tournament, and 22nd on the season, on a rebound shot past North Carolina’s Shannon Johnson.The match remained deadlocked in a 1-1 tie until Manley fed a pass to freshman Lieke Visser, who delivered her second goal of the tournament in the 47th minute of the game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNorth Carolina pulled their goalie with 10 minutes remaining to give them a one-man advantage on the attack.SU couldn’t convert on an empty net and a brief defensive lapse allowed midfielder Emily Wold to flick a shot from the top of the circle past the reach of Jecko.The 2-2 tie would remain so through the end of the second half of regulation, and both 15-minute overtime periods that followed. The national semifinal was to be decided in a five-round penalty stroke-off.SU held a 3-2 advantage in strokes, with Russell looking to seal the victory with a goal. She couldn’t convert, allowing North Carolina to tie the stroke-off on their last shot.The sudden-death victory round of strokes then took effect, with Jecko making a save on the Tar Heels’ first shot to set the stage for Manley, who sent a shot past Johnson and hysteric celebration ensued.

first_img Published on April 26, 2017 at 1:11 am Contact Matt: [email protected] Syracuse head coach Gary Gait remembers his first “stall game” vividly.He was an assistant coach for Maryland in the 1994 national championship game, his first year coaching. Princeton held the ball for nearly the entire second half against Gait’s UMD squad, eventually topping the Terrapins, 10-7.The Tigers knew they would have to “slow things down,” head coach Chris Sailer told the Baltimore Sun after the victory.“Slowing things down” had become the euphemism for stalling opponents out, and Princeton exploited the absence of a stall warning rule.It was a rule that bugged Gait for the next 22 years, following him to Syracuse. In 2014, the rule cost Gait a shot at a national title game when the Terrapins took advantage of the stall, and Gait’s team suffered the loss.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textKayla Treanor had gotten Syracuse within two goals of the Terrapins in the pair’s matchup two years prior, and with the Terrapins holding a slim 10-8 lead and nearly a quarter of the half left, an Orange comeback seemed possible.With no rule in place to stop the Terrapins from draining the clock, UMD held the ball for the final 7:18 of the game. Chants of “shot clock” crept through the crowd as UMD effectively iced an SU comeback.From 2011 to 2015, every NCAA women’s national championship game was decided by three goals or less. Dozens more postseason games, like the Orange’s defeat against UMD two years ago, had been decided by similar margins.After that game, when the Terrapins won its 12th NCAA Championship and the SU players sat wondering what could have been, the NCAA released the new set of rules. One of those added the shot clock, which took effect this season.“It’s been a lot more fun to watch,” Gait said, looking back on a full regular season under the shot clock rule. “Getting rid of stalling and holding long possessions, it makes you play.”An NCAA committee determined that the shot clock should be 90 seconds because it’s the “average time of possession,” in the women’s lacrosse game, according to Halley Quillinan, a former Orange attack who played from 2007-2010 and now serves as the women’s editor at Inside Lacrosse.“I think 90 seconds is a perfect amount of time,” Quillinan said. “I certainly think that teams have the opportunity to work for multiple offensive looks, which is nice when a shot is taken but not on cage.”The clock works similarly to the basketball shot clock. The only way to reset it is to either hit the frame of the goal or the goalie. Sophomore attack Nicole Levy called it “a whole new game” back in January.Some of the early benefits that Quillinan has seen from the rule change are more full-field rides from defenses, re-defending post slide and zone defenses, all in an effort to squeeze time from the clock and force unwanted shots. She called it “one of the first rules that actually helps the defender.”“(The shot clock) rewards the defense,” Quillinan said. “If you do your job, and if you play clean smart defense collectively as a team, then you’re rewarded. That’s pretty great to see.”SU defender Haley McDonnell said that the Orange defense was excited about the new rule coming into the season, and the team still feels that way. She said the clock has made the defense’s job more exciting. If they ride out the opposing offense for the entire clock, they can get the ball back.Quillinan said that she doesn’t see the shot clock coming into play much until the postseason. It’s the most common time for teams to settle for one-goal wins to make it to the next round, and with the previous rules, this was most easily done through stalling, she said.The new rule hasn’t come without its problems. The largest problem Quillinan has seen this season is young players rushing shots, and in turn making dangerous attempts on goal where they would regularly pass for a better shot.When the clock is running out and an inexperienced player has possession, they’re much more likely to take a risky shot, Quillinan said. The constant running of the shot clock gets in the attackers’ minds, and they’re more likely to make a poor decision with a whole sideline screaming at them to shoot.“When you have a young woman who knows she has to take a shot with 10 seconds left from the corner of the field, that’s dangerous,” Quillinan said. “And it’s a lot harder to (make a safe play), especially when there’s a national championship or conference championship on the line.”Quillinan said through her conversations with individuals involved in the rule change, this was a problem that was foreseen far before the rule was implemented. It gave coaches the opportunity to plan how they would teach the rule to their shooters.Orange attack Riley Donahue said that from her perspective, the shot clock isn’t forcing dangerous shots. Instead, it’s forcing attackers to work for smarter shots, Donahue said, and even though it’s a rule mainly meant for defenders, she applauded the NCAA for adding it to the game.When the Orange enters postseason play Thursday in the first round of the ACC tournament against Virginia Tech, it’s a strong possibility that the game will be decided in the final minutes, similar to SU’s 12-11 win at SU Soccer Stadium on April 9.One thing is for certain. This time, Gait won’t have to worry about stalling like he did in 1994, 2015 and the 22 years in between.“It’s been exceptional,” Gait said regarding the shot clock. “I think now we’re just going to see fun, great lacrosse in the playoffs. And that’s it.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgTHE expansion of Pramerica with an extra 330 jobs on top of the 1,200 already employed there is proof that Donegal can create even more jobs given the right infrastructure, says TD Thomas Pringle.While so many tech companies choose to go to Dublin, Cork or Galway, Donegal has lost out on almost every IDA investment in recent years.Premises lie empty at the Business Park in Letterkenny as a result. But Deputy Pringle said: “I believe this shows that Donegal does have the necessary skilled workforce and can facilitate state-of-the-art employers coming to Ireland.“Jobs policies should continue to focus on counties like Donegal to increase access to good quality jobs while also facilitating other types of employment to maximise employment to the region.“This means developing infrastructures like high speed broadband and other supports to facilitate local job creation as well as IDA jobs.”  GIVE US THE INFRASTRUCTURE FOR MORE JOBS, SAYS PRINGLE was last modified: July 22nd, 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:donegalIDApramericaTDThomas Pringlelast_img read more

first_imgThe Congress that had not very long ago rubbished allegations of the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) that EVMs were tampered with during the Punjab Assembly elections earlier this year, has leveled similar charges in the ongoing polls in Gujarat. The volte-face by a section of the local team in Gujarat has left a larger dominant leadership sharply divided over the issue. The allegations of faulty EVMs by Congress leaders have prompted the same response its own leaders had fired at the AAP after the party came a distant second in Punjab.The BJP has mocked the Congress of staring at defeat and pulling out excuses in advance.”The Congress had introduced EVMs and it will be very foolish of us to blame an electoral loss on its tampering. While the party has put the BJP on the backfoot right on Narendra Modi’s home turf, if we do not manage to win, we should be a sport and take it on our chin instead of making excuses like the AAP,” said a senior party functionary.Playing down the controversy, Gujarat Congress chief Bharatsinh Solanki told Mail Today, “It is not an unknown fact that some EVMs were found faulty and the Election Commission had to conduct repolls there. But we trust the EC and are sure of a victory.”Delhi Pradesh Congress Committee chief Ajay Maken, who was faced with the same dilemma of whether to back AAP’s claims of EVM tampering during the municipal polls earlier this year, maintained, “I cannot comment on the issue in Gujarat, but in our past experience in Delhi, I had written to Arvind Kejriwal before the municipal polls backing the demand for ballot papers for more transparency in the polling process. But once the elections were announced, we decided to put our faith in the EC and did not question its role in conducting free and fair polls.”advertisementSeveral other senior leaders across state units refused to comment on the issue citing lack of clarity on the party’s official stand.During the first phase of polling on Saturday, senior Congress leader and former Gujarat unit chief Arjun Modhwadia, who is contesting from Porbandar, alleged that mobile phones were detecting some external devices connected to EVMs at polling booths in his constituency.”The chips fitted in EVMs appear to be programmable using bluetooth, and this raises the possibility of tampering,” alleged Modhwadia.Chief electoral officer BB Swain later said as per the inquiry report, the complainant’s phone was detecting another device identified as ‘ECO 105’ giving rise to apprehensions of possible tampering and rubbished foul play. Modhwadia was then backed by senior party colleagues such as Shaktisinh Gohil and Rajya Sabha MP Ahmed Patel.ALSO WATCH: BJP rakes up Ram Mandir as it can’t show any development, says Hardik Patellast_img read more

This was explained today in a media statement that a team of special investigators are in country and the goal is for them to take another and a more expert look at some of the homicides committed within the islands. “The Commissioner alerted the Council to the arrival of an investigative group of senior police, who would be in TCI for twelve weeks to review a number of murder cases.” The special team is being funded by TCIG. Also being reviewed is the illegal landings and troubles with poachers. The Council made up of the Governor, the Premier, the Border Control Minister, the Attorney General and the Police Commissioner notes that the total number of arrivals have been more limited in recent months, and were also considerably fewer in individual vessels. Still, it was explained that the British Ambassador to the Dominican Republic was arranging for a visit by the Governor and Minister of Border Control to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Santo Domingo to discuss illegal fishing and maritime issues.
