Fudadin backs Scorpions to bring the sting against defending champs

first_imgBy Clifton RossASSAD Fudadin, Jamaica Scorpions opener, said he’s thrilled to be back home and playing on his erstwhile home ground, as his team seek an uprising when they tackle the defending champs at Providence as today’s 4th Round bowls off.An ex-Guyana Jaguars/West Indies Test batsman, Fudadin told Chronicle Sport on the eve of Round 4’s battle that he and his team were poised as they prepare to compete with the champs over the next four days.The stylish left-hander, who was one of the seniors in the Jaguars side during their early years of success, then took his skills to Jamaica where he has been one of the key batsmen in the Scorpions franchise in both formats over the past few seasons.Upon his return to familiar territory, the Berbician said he was ecstatic to have another knock on his old turf. “Honestly it’s always good to be home, I’m happy to be here again because I haven’t played in a while on this ground. So right now I’m just looking forward for another opportunity to showcase my talent out here”.The Scorpions have endured a mixed season so far, playing well as a team but lacking the killer edge needed to pull off big wins against strong teams. Speaking on the approach needed against the red-hot champs, Fudadin stated that his team just need to get a couple of wins under their belt and he believes that they can be a formidable force against the Jaguars.“I would say we need to focus on batting, bowling and fielding, we need to be a bit more patient and I think we could stand a chance once we’re a little more patient and thoughtful as we try to execute. It’s hard to lose two good players (Rovman Powell and Brandon King Windies duties), but the replacement guys are capable of doing the job and we have full confidence in them.” Fudadin added.A slightly weakened Jamaican team could be easy picking for Guyana who wrapped up a clinical thrashing of the-then No.1, Trinidad Red Force. However, the Guyanese was adamant that they have learnt much and will be keen on enforcing their lessons going forward.“I’m not going to say things haven’t gone well, because we had two good games and we have been playing very good cricket. I think we just need to string together a few wins now. We were a bit off against Barbados but there were also some positives coming out of that that we can take into this match,” ended the opener.Meanwhile, the visitors engaged in a healthy net session yesterday afternoon at Providence as they looked to get themselves fine-tuned ahead of today’s start to the round, which is scheduled to bowl off from 10:00hrs.last_img read more

Orange defense steps up, holds Zips to 166 yards

first_imgShamarko Thomas remembers feeling ‘a little pressure.’ He remembers feeling the momentum shift. And he remembers how good it felt. ‘When we set the tone,’ said Thomas, a sophomore safety, ‘the offense follows. It’s a great feeling knowing we back each other up.’ With the Orange leading by 10 in the second quarter against the Zips Saturday, an SU turnover put Akron on the Syracuse 18-yard line. That put the Orange in a bind. But with its back against the wall, the defense flexed its muscles. Three plays later, Akron kicked a field goal and came away with its only points of the game. Not allowing a touchdown gave quarterback Ryan Nassib just over a minute to drive down and score on the other end. It was perhaps the turning point in the Orange’s 29-3 victory over the Zips. ‘It’s something that gets taken for granted because I think they’ve really done a good job,’ SU head coach Doug Marrone said. ‘But for them to make that stop was big.’AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Against Akron, the SU defense was as dominant as it has been in a long, long time. Last year, the Orange ranked 13th in the nation in yards per game against the run. But against the Zips, not only was the run defense stout, the pass defense was also equally impressive. SU completely shut down the Zips, allowing just three points and 166 yards of total offense. With the strong effort, the SU defense appears to have picked up where it left off last season. And though it came against a far inferior opponent, the performance gives the Orange defense added confidence heading into Week 2 against Washington and Heisman Trophy candidate quarterback Jake Locker. For Thomas, Saturday was fun. And it may have been the start of big things for the Orange defense. ‘We played well,’ Thomas started, ‘but we’re just trying to get better every week. We’re pushing ourselves to the limit to see just how good we can be.’ A Little Inspiration Before Saturday’s game at Akron, the players were visited by a Syracuse legend. Recent Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee Floyd Little met with players and coaches and gave a speech, encouraging the Orange to bring back a winning football tradition to SU. Marrone described the speech as ‘unbelievable’ and ‘very moving.’ And for the SU players, it gave added motivation to start their season differently from recent years. SU running back Delone Carter, who said he came to SU because of the tradition set by players such as Little, said Little’s remarks gave the Orange added motivation Saturday. ‘It’s just so inspiring to be in front of a Hall of Famer,’ Carter said. ‘Just to get him and to meet him and hear him speak was amazing.’ With SU’s goal of returning to a bowl game for the first time since 2004, Little’s inspirational remarks couldn’t have come at a more opportune time, Thomas said. ‘It was a great way to start the season,’ Thomas said. ‘Anytime you can have a guy like him speak to you before a game, it’s going to give you a little something extra.’ This and that Freshman Ross Krautman started at kicker instead of returning starter Ryan Lichtenstein. He finished the game 1-for-1 from field goal range and 2-for-4 on point after attempts, kicking one wide and botching another due to a bad snap. His field goal was a 47-yarder that could have potentially went for 10 yards farther. Marrone would not offer comment on Lichtenstein’s status after the game. … On Mike Holmes’ touchdown score, the field goal was blocked by Doug Hogue and deflected off Chandler Jones’ elbow before Holmes took the ball 57 yards for the score. … Carter had 12 carries in the first quarter alone, setting up the deep passing routes that allowed SU to complete five passes of 20 yards or more. aljohn@syr.edu Published on September 6, 2010 at 12:00 pm Commentscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Viscarra’s Vice: Rams’ fast start is converting skeptics

first_imgWhen the Los Angeles Rams opened the 2017 regular season with a convincing 46-9 victory over the Indianapolis Colts, there was a positive feeling about the direction that the team was heading in. Los Angeles put on a dominant defensive showing in its Week 1 victory, paired with a clean 300-yard passing effort from quarterback Jared Goff. The Sean McVay coaching era began with a win.But following the victory, as the media gaggle made its way to the Rams’ locker room, I heard several reporters muttering, “Don’t drink the Rams’ Kool-Aid just yet … let’s see where this team is in a few weeks.”These media members had reason to express caution. After watching the Rams begin 3-1 and ultimately tailspin to a 4-12 record last season, anyone around this franchise should be wary of a meltdown.But for followers of the Rams, something is distinctly different about the team this go-around. Something about this group feels more absolute — more concrete. Maybe it’s the youthful spark of 31-year-old head coach McVay that has people buying in. It could be a blossoming Goff, or resurgent running back Todd Gurley that has people feeling like Los Angeles has finally harnessed the talent of its young football stars.And while the Rams are coming off an exhausting 16-10 loss to the Seattle Seahawks, I find myself now, more than ever, saying this team will be formidable in the NFC this season. Dare I say, this team will be vying for a playoff spot come winter.The loss certainly hurt, but with 11 games remaining, the upside for McVay’s Rams is something NFL fans should take note of.Despite serving up five turnovers to the Seahawks (who rank fifth in total defense), the Rams still had every opportunity to come away with a win on its home turf. The fact that the Rams could have escaped Sunday with a win is a testament to the team’s resilience this season.I hate spewing coach-speak in my columns, but the Rams’ loss on Sunday came down to a game of inches. If Gurley’s first-quarter fumble didn’t hit the pylon or if wide receiver Cooper Kupp was able to reel in the game-winning touchdown pass that fell off his fingertips with less than 30 seconds left in play, Los Angeles would be a 4-1 football team today. It would be tied (with three other teams) for the second-best record in football through five weeks.Nonetheless, the Rams find themselves sitting at 3-2 overall through five games. In a very-winnable NFC West, Los Angeles finds itself in second place.The Rams’ strong showings early on have been powered by an offensive attack that, following Week 4, was statistically the best offense in the NFL. After Sunday’s game, Los Angeles now bears the second-best scoring offense in the game, averaging 30.4 points per game.In stark contrast, the 2016 Rams’ attack finished last in the NFL. The team’s offensive resurrection certainly has to be largely credited to McVay, who was a proven offensive mind during his time coaching in Washington the past seven seasons. The guru McVay has helped some assets finally blossom for the Rams.Gurley’s outstanding September saw him bring home NFC Offensive Player of the Month honors. After a sluggish 2016 season, Gurley racked up 381 yards from scrimmage (241 rushing, 140 receiving) and scored six total touchdowns (four rushing, two receiving) in his first four games.At signal caller, Goff has had shining moments through the first five contests of 2017. In the Rams’35-30 victory on the road against the Dallas Cowboys, Goff threw for 255 yards and a pair of touchdowns in what was Los Angeles’ biggest win of the young season.In Sunday’s contest against the Seahawks, Tavon Austin found the endzone on a 27-yard rushing score that was the Rams’ only touchdown of the day.This trio of Goff, Gurley and Austin is a young nucleus that the Rams are glad to see being productive thus far in 2017. And while the Rams’ defense has been underachieving in many aspects, ranking 23rd in scoring defense (allowing 24.2 points per game), it held Seattle to 62 total rushing yards Sunday. This defense also boasts what many consider to be the most dominant defensive player in the NFL in lineman Aaron Donald.So, my conclusion? After just five games, I feel comfortable stating that the Rams have the tools (a budding quarterback, a defensive star and a young, offensive-minded coach) to build a winning season and make a playoff push.But first things first forfresh-faced coach McVay (who has two players on his roster who are older than him): His team has an opportunity to make a statement on the road next week against a thriving Jacksonville (3-2) team that is leading the AFC South.As for the question posed following Week 1: Yes, I am in fact drinking the Rams’ Kool-Aid. Hopefully not prematurely.Angel Viscarra is a junior studying broadcast and digital journalism. His column, Viscarra’s Vice, runs Tuesdays.last_img read more

It is something that I will never forget,” Gyan said on 3 Sports.BackgroundGhana made it to the quarter-finals of the 2010 FIFA World Cup beating the USA in the Round of 16 to become the third African country to reach that milestone.Cameroon was the first in 1990, followed by Senegal in 2002 and then the Black Stars of Ghana.Ghana lost the quarter-finals to Uruguay on penalties after a 1-1 drawn game at the Soccer City in Johannesburg.Penalty misses from Dominic Adiyiah and John Mensah meant Uruguay progressed to face the Netherlands.
