Roche in red

first_img Konig timed his winning burst to perfection on the Alto de Penas Blancas climb to hand Team NetApp-Endura their first victory in a Grand Tour. He set off in pursuit of leader Igor Anton (Euskaltel-Euskadi) two kilometres from the end and upped his speed again at the one-kilometre mark after being joined by a group of four including Roche (Team Saxo-Tinkoff) and Italian Ivan Basso (Cannondale Pro Cycling). Konig got past fading Basque Anton with 500 metres remaining and crossed the line 10 metres clear of charging Spaniard Daniel Moreno (Katusha), with King of the Mountains leader Roche five seconds adrift of the winner in third place. Stage-two winner Roche took over atop the general classification from Italian Vincenzo Nibali (Astana Pro Team), the Irishman establishing a 17-second cushion over American Chris Horner (RadioShack Leopard) and Moreno, with Nibali a further second back and Konig 29 seconds off the pace. Irishman Nicolas Roche took over the race leader’s red jersey at the Vuelta a Espana on Saturday by finishing third on stage eight, which was won by Czech rider Leopold Konig.center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Trojans reshuffled in NWSL Draft

first_imgTwo former USC women’s soccer players were selected on Tuesday in the 2018 NWSL Dispersal Draft. Forward Morgan Andrews was selected as the second pick in the second round by the Seattle Reign, while goalkeeper Sammy Jo Prudhomme went to the Houston Dash as the sixth pick in the third round.Former USC goalkeeper and NCAA National Champion Sammy Jo Prudhomme was drafted by the Houston Dash in the 2018 NWSL Dispersal Draft. Daily Trojan file photo.The draft took place after the Boston Breakers, one of the league’s founding teams, announced that it would cease operations on Sunday. All of the players who were under contract or whose rights were owned by the Breakers were eligible for selection in the draft, along with any members of the team’s Discovery List. Andrews and Prudhomme graduated in 2017 and played integral roles in the Trojans’ championship run in the 2016 NCAA College Cup. The duo were both part of head coach Keidane McAlpine’s early success with building his roster through transfers — Prudhomme left Oregon State after a stellar season with the Beavers in 2013, while Andrews left Notre Dame for the Trojans at the start of the 2015 season.In her two years with the program, Andrews scored 47 goals for the team, including the team’s first ever hat trick in the College Cup in 2016. She went on to become a captain that season, scoring one of the three goals in the 2016 national title game against West Virginia.Andrews was selected by the Breakers with the third overall pick of the 2017 NWSL Draft. A native of Milford, N.H., the selection was a homecoming for Andrews, who grew up dreaming of one day playing for the Boston program. She made 18 appearances for the Breakers. She also made several appearances for the U.S. U-17 and U-20 national teams, notching 2 goals.Now, Andrews heads to the Seattle Reign, a program that has defined itself as one of the most stable in the league in both success and in fan support. The team finished first in the regular season in both 2014 and 2015, and finished fifth overall last season. On her new team, Andrews will join a roster stocked with international superstars such as midfielder Megan Rapinoe. Prudhomme only allowed 27 goals during her two years as a keeper for the Trojans, becoming the core of the “brick wall backline” that defined the defense-first national championship team in 2016. She made 106 saves and only allowed 11 goals in that season’s run to the national title, earning distinction as Pac-12 Goalkeeper of the Year.In her solo season with the Breakers, Prudhomme made five appearances in the net. She now heads to the Houston Dash, a team that has struggled historically. In past seasons, the Dash has finished at the bottom of the league almost every year, failing to ever qualify for the playoffs.However, off-season trades and re-signings mean that Prudhomme will have the chance to play behind names such as striker Christen Press and forward Rachel Daly. In goal, she will be jockeying for playing time with Stanford alumni Jane Campbell, an up-and-coming star for the U.S. national team.The dispersal draft consisted of five rounds of nine picks, with teams choosing in an order selected by a weighted draw based on last season’s results. Most teams chose to defer their selection to the fourth round, leaving several younger players off the roster of any team for the foreseeable future.last_img read more

Five major trophies Hearts of Oak have won since being founded 108 years ago

first_imgHearts of Oak are without doubt one of Ghana’s biggest ever clubs.Aside their over 100-year history, Hearts of Oak are one of the country’s most successful clubs, winning over 30 domestic and continental laurels.Hearts of Oak also placed 7th in CAF’s list of the best African clubs of the 20th century.With the club celebrating 108 years since it was founded today, let’s relive five of their biggest successes.2000 CAF Champions LeagueHearts of Oak began their memorable CAF Championship campaign against Guinean club, Horoya FC, beating them 3-2 on aggregate. In the next round, the Accra-based club beat DC Motema Pembe 4-3 on aggregate to seal a spot in the group stages of the competition.Hearts finished top of a group which included Egyptian side, Al Ahly; Lobi Stars of Nigeria and  Senegalese Club Jeanne d’Arc without losing a single game. With the top sides in the two groups qualifying for the final, Hearts faced Tunisian giants Esperance in a two-legged final. After winning the first leg in Tunisia 2-1 with goals from Ishmael Addo and Emmanuel Osei Kuffour, Hearts won the second leg 3-1 with both players getting on the scoresheet yet again (Kuffour with a brace). Kuffour scored 10 goals to finish as the tournament’s top marksman as Hearts won their first, and so far only, Champions League crown.2001 CAF Super CupHaving won the CAF Champions League the year before, Hearts of Oak earned the right to contest the CAF Super Cup against the winners of the African Cup WInner’s Cup, Egypt’s Zamalek.The side led by coach Cecil Jones Attuquayefio triumphed yet again, picking up a 2-0 win, with Charles Taylor and Champions League hero Emmanuel Osei Kuffuor finding the net.2004 CAF Confederation CupHaving been knocked out of the CAF Champions League that year at the Round of 16 stage, Hearts of Oak entered the new CAF Confederations Cup tournament at the Playoff stage. They earned a narrow 1-0 victory over Senegalese side AS Douanes after two legs to make it through to the group stages. Hearts won their group which included Cameroonian sides Coton Sport FC and Sable FC and South Africa’s Santos FC, winning four of their six matches. In the final, they face their fiercest rivals, Kumasi Asante Kotoko, with the tense first leg ending  1-1, after a late Louis Agyemang strike cancelled out Michael Osei’s goal for Kotoko.  In the second leg, another late Hearts goal, this time by Lawrence Adjah Tetteh stopped Kotoko from claiming the trophy after Charles Taylor had given them the lead. The match went to a penalty shootout with Edmund Owusu-Ansah and Amankwah Mireku missing the first kicks for both Kotoko and Hearts respectively. After both sides scored their next four penalties, the shootout went to sudden death, with both teams finding the net on their next three tries. Crucially, however, Joe Hendricks missed for Kotoko with Michael Donkor hitting the back of the net with his effort.2008/09 Ghana Premier LeagueKicking off the campaign with a 2-0 win at St Mirren and ending it with the same scoreline at home to the same team, Hearts of Oak were crowned Premier League Champions in July 2009.It wasn’t a walk in the park however as Hearts finished only three points clear of Asante Kotoko in second place. They started the season in fine form, winning nine of their first ten games, including a 2-1 win At Asante Kotoko and drawing the other. And despite losing 1-0 in Accra to Kotoko, Hearts eventually held on to capture their 20th league title. They have not won a league title since.2000 FA CupHeart of Oak’s run to the 2000 FA Cup was a long and tedious one as they beat Okwahu Youngsters (2-0), Hasaacas (5-3 on penalties after a 1-1 draw), B.A. United (1-0), and Dawu Youngsters (1-0) en route to the final. In the match against Okwahu United, goals from Ishmael Addo and Emmanuel Osei Kuffour gave Hearts a 2-0 winlast_img read more
