Red Force follow-on despite Ramdin, Jangoo half-centuries

first_imgST GEORGE’S, Grenada, (CMC) – Test discard Denesh Ramdin continued to press his case for a recall to the regional side, stroking his third half-century of the season here Saturday to move to the brink of 700 runs.The Trinidad and Tobago Red Force skipper struck 75 but it was not enough to prevent his side from being forced to follow on, as they were dismissed for 172 in their first innings on the penultimate day of their ninth round contest in the Regional Four-Day Championship against Windward Islands Volcanoes.Behind by 194 runs, the visitors ended the day on 93 for two in their second innings, still requiring a further 101 runs to avoid an innings defeat.They were being carried by left-handed opener Amir Jangoo who was unbeaten on 58.Resuming the day at the National Stadium on 51 for four in reply to Volcanoes’ 366, Red Force were immediately in trouble when they lost Tion Webster without adding to his overnight three, bowled by seamer Kyle Mayers in the third over of the morning.Not for the first time this season, however, the right-handed Ramdin rescued the visitors. The 32-year-old faced 182 balls and struck seven fours but more importantly, anchored two key partnerships to push Red Force past 150.He put on 51 for the sixth wicket with wicketkeeper Steven Katwaroo who made 23 from 75 balls, before adding a further 46 for the seventh wicket with Imran Khan who also got 23.The resistance ended with Imran Khan’s departure as Red Force lost their last four wickets for 18 runs, with Ramdin ninth out with his fourth century of the campaign in sight.Ramdin, a former Windies Test captain, now has 695 runs for the season – the second highest aggregate for the 2017/18 campaign.Off-spinner Shane Shillingford finished with three for 36 while left-arm pacer Delorn Johnson (2-32) and seamer Sherman Lewis (2-39) claimed two wickets apiece.VOLCANOES 1st Innings 366Red Force 1st Innings(overnight 51 for four)A Jangoo c Cato b Johnson 24J Solozano c Cato b Johnson 0E Nicholson lbw b Lewis 2Y Cariah lbw b Shillingford 7*D Ramdin c Edwards b Theophile 75T Webster b Mayers 3+S Katwaroo c Edwards b Edward 23Imran Khan c Cato b Lewis 23K Pierre c Theophile b Shillingford 2D St Clair not out 2B Charles c Hodge b Shillingford 1Extras (b6, lb4) 10TOTAL (all out, 85.1 overs) 172Fall of wickets: 1-3, 2-13, 3-39, 4-43, 5-57, 6-108, 7-154, 8-165, 9-169, 10-172.Bowling: Johnson 11-1-32-2, Lewis 18-5-39-2, Mayers 13-11-6-1, Shillingford 23.1-6-36-3, Edward 11-3-34-1, Theophile 9-1-15-1.RED FORCE 2nd Innings (following on)A Jangoo not out 58J Solozano lbw b Mayers 16E Nicholson c Theophile b Edward 6Y Cariah not out 11Extras (lb2) 2TOTAL (2 wkts, 44 overs) 93Fall of wickets: 1-18, 2-31.Bowling: Johnson 7-2-17-0, Mayers 8-7-3-1, Shillingford 16-4-31-0, Lewis 4-1-8-0, Edward 4-0-16-1, Theophile 5-0-16-0.Position: Red Force require a further 101 runs to make Volcanoes bat again.last_img read more

Update: Stave out indefinitely but not injured

first_imgThe Wisconsin football quarterback situation took another confusing turn Monday afternoon following practice, with Joel Stave remaining out indefinitely, but not because of an injury as head coach Gary Andersen had said earlier in the day. Monday morning, Andersen said Stave would miss an undisclosed amount of time with a throwing shoulder injury.Stave shut down indefinitely Update: Badgers head coach Gary Andersen told reporters after this story was published that Stave is still out indefinitely, but Read…But Andersen met with reporters in the afternoon to clear up his earlier comments. Andersen, for example, said the word “injury” was not the proper word in the statement earlier that day.“Joel is at practice. He’s at meetings. He’s in all the scenarios, as far as that stuff goes. But as far as game-prepping at this point, that’s where Joel is not with us completely 100 percent, all the time,” Andersen told reporters. “He’s at practice all the time. I don’t want to say he’s not practicing, he’s not with us because that’s not the case. When Joel feels that he can do that, he’ll be right back in that process.”The second-year head coach also made it clear that there is nothing wrong with the throwing shoulder that Stave injured in the Capital One Bowl in January.“There’s been no re-injury for Joel whatsoever,” Andersen said. “Is he injured? No. Is he ready to play right now? No.“It’s not an injury as far as him feeling like he re-hurt it, or he’s struggling or it’s a shoulder scenario. It’s him just working through getting in a position to be able to get into the game and play in a game for us.”After Andersen spoke to the media, Stave also did his best to clear up the confusion about the situation.“Physically, nothing is wrong,” Stave said. “I just haven’t thrown the ball the way I’d like to.”Despite nothing being physically wrong, Andersen said in his teleconference this morning that Stave hasn’t looked his usual self since the middle part of August. It’s hard to tell what the case might be with Stave, but tonight’s updates probably won’t be the last of it. However, Stave said the development has been more recent than that.“I’ve noticed in this past week I haven’t really thrown it the way that I’m used to or the way that’d I’d like to,” Stave said. “That’s when you start to think a little bit. You just got to get back to relax and play the game like you know you can.A report earlier in the afternoon by ESPN claimed that Stave could potentially miss the rest of the season. But when he met with the media this afternoon, Stave said he could play this weekend against Western Illinois if he had to.last_img read more

Takeaways from Syracuse’s scrimmage against Lehigh

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ As the buzzer sounded to end the third period, Jakob Phaup was shoved to the ground by Christian McHugh. Phaup stood and exchanged words with the Lehigh midfielder, but then ran back to the Syracuse bench. SU and Lehigh did plenty of talking on Saturday afternoon at Lazer Stadium, starting in warm ups. The Orange fell to Lehigh, 14-10, in their third and final scrimmage of the fall. Here are three takeaways from the game. Time and spaceSyracuse’s defense huddled with goalie Drake Porter outside the goal crease for the third time just over three minutes into the scrimmage. Twice, Christian Mule had cut across the face of goal, received the ball and fired it past Porter. For Lehigh’s second goal, two defenders converged on a cut to the middle, opening up space at the restraining line for a long shot. Throughout the game, SU’s defense was a step behind Lehigh attackers, giving them space to fire shots. Porter improved in the second quarter to limit the Mountain Hawks to two goals, but both came when the left wing was left unattended as Lehigh swung the ball around the outside of the SU defense. The backside defender again lost his mark on the right side to start the second half and backup goalie Luke Strang could do nothing but stand and watch as the ball furrowed into his cage. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIt was a sharp reminder of the youth in the Orange’s defensive corps. Tyson Bomberry, who co-led Syracuse in caused turnovers and was second in ground balls, graduated. The other co-leader in caused turnovers from last season, Nick Mellen, will have to fill that gap on the field and as a leader. Big names shineTucker Dordevic missed all of last season with a foot injury. Chase Scanlan was part of the Loyola team that knocked Syracuse out of last year’s NCAA tournament. Both are playing for SU this year and showed the most creativity of the players in orange and white on Saturday. Scanlan, along with the rest of the SU offense, took time to get going, but he contributed two first-half goals. First, he spun off a Lehigh defender, leaving him on the ground, and looked off the goalie with a fake pass. He finished the play with a no-look finish. For his second goal, Scanlan took a feed to the right of the Lehigh goalie. Tip-toeing around the crease, he snuck his shot into the net. Dordevic didn’t find twine but was the focal point of the Syracuse offense. He was given freedom to keep the ball and try and dodge the Lehigh defenders. He roamed from behind the net to the wings and all the way up to the top of the restraining box. The closest he got to a goal was when he beat his defender with speed and rung his shot off the post. It was clear that he will be the playmaker in the Orange offense this season. Stagnant offenseDordevic took a pass on the right wing with 75 seconds on the shot clock and drifted down behind the net. For the next 15 seconds, he held the ball, trying to dodge past his defender and get to the side of the net. Without finding any openings, he flung it over the cage and past everyone for an over-and-back. Syracuse’s offense for most of the afternoon forced its star players to have to create without much movement from the other attackers. It led to an 11-6 hole heading into the fourth quarter. Most of Syracuse’s goals in the first three quarters came in transition. It was the most space it had all afternoon. But when Lehigh tracked back and forced SU into half-field sets, the Orange struggled. Lehigh packed the middle, and Syracuse swung the ball around the outside without many looks inside. When it gained position behind the net, there weren’t hard cuts to the sides to gain openings. It took until midway through the final frame for Syracuse to find space in the middle of the Lehigh defense. Jake Nelson took a pass with his back to the net, surrounded by defenders, and flicked the ball behind his back and into the goal. Then Pete Fiorini waltzed toward the front of the goal to bring the lead down to three goals. Without Dordevic and Scanlan on the field, Syracuse finally moved and looked to cut open the Lehigh defense with passing.  Comments Published on October 26, 2019 at 4:57 pm Contact Arabdho: | @aromajumder last_img read more

Colts being cautious with Andrew Luck, cite Kevin Durant’s Achilles injury

first_imgAndrew Luck participated in drills the first day of training camp Thursday, but the Colts quarterback sat out the full-team portion of practice with a strained calf.Head coach Frank Reich cited the Achilles injury Kevin Durant suffered in the NBA Finals for influencing his decision to sit Luck. NFL free agency news: Dolphins sign Allen Hurns to 1-year deal Philip Rivers ‘loves’ Melvin Gordon, but Chargers seem content with ‘deep’ running back group “The plan would be for [Friday], for him to do 7-on-7, and we might just keep it 7-on-7 for a few days. We’ll do that for one, two, three, four days, however many it takes.”“It’s all about progress,” Luck said (via the Star). “I wasn’t in a position to go in and test it or push it. I think I did an appropriate amount of work today, got better, and we’ll keep adding.”Backup Jacoby Brissett will take first-team reps during drills as the Colts ease Luck back into action.center_img The 29-year-old quarterback strained his calf this spring and missed the Colts’ OTAs and minicamp, although Reich said in June he would have been able to play if there were a game.But having seen Durant tear his Achilles in his first game back after missing a month with a calf strain, the Colts are taking no chances with their franchise quarterback early in training camp. Related News “We didn’t really talk about it, but I think we all knew it,” Reich said of Durant’s injury (via the Indianapolis Star). “I was certainly thinking it. When you see something like that happen, you’re like, ‘Oh yeah, that’s why we do what we’re doing.’”Colts general manager Chris Ballard said earlier this week that Luck would be limited the first week or so of camp, and Reich certainly concurs with that mindset.“When you don’t go the whole spring, it’s the smart thing to do,” Reich said. “We’ve got plenty of time. He’s working hard, he’s dialed in. He’ll get plenty of reps.last_img read more
