OSU mens soccer defends Wolstein Classic title in overtime

Ohio State men’s soccer’s first win of the 2012 season was doubly important – it also clinched its second consecutive Wolstein Classic championship.OSU (1-2-1) captured its first win against Davidson, 3-2, on Sunday in an overtime victory in the Bert and Iris Wolstein Classic at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes drew with Coastal Carolina, 1-1, Friday to stay in the running for their second consecutive tournament title. The Buckeyes, also tournament hosts, rallied from 2-0 deficit to capture the tournament.“It’s awesome. It’s such a relief for us because we have been so close for so long,” said senior midfielder Austin McAnena. “I mean every single game we have been pretty unlucky at the end of games, and that last goal we got lucky and I think that can really turn our season around.”OSU coach John Bluem wasn’t too happy with how his team started in the beginning of the game, but was proud of the way his team finished.“It feels great. I thought we would already have won one by now,” Bluem said. “We lost some games we thought we could have won. Today was a game we thought we could win, and then we put ourselves in a really deep hole. Really proud of our players that they hung in there and got the win today.”With the Buckeyes down, 2-0, in the second half, things went from bad to worse, as sophomore midfielder Yianni Sarris was hit with a red card early in the period, and forced the Buckeyes to play with only 10 players on the field. Instead of the man-down scenario setting OSU back even more, it spurred the Buckeyes to a revival.“We all kind of looked at each other,” sophomore forward Kenny Cunningham said. “Let’s get it together; this is a turning point of our season. If we get this together, the whole season turns around.”Shortly after the red card, senior midfielder Sebastian Rivas scored the first goal for the Buckeye. Then freshman defender Alex Bujenovic tied the game up 2-2 with a free kick that forced overtime.In the 97th minute, Cunningham put Davidson away for good with a powerful, game winning shot.If the game had two different stories of the intensity level for the Buckeyes, McAnena said the penalty on Sarris ignited the team and brought them together.“I think it was just the intensity,” McAnena said. “We were a man down, and we really needed to pick it up. It was kind of our last stand, and when we were down 2-0, with Sarris on the bench, we just had to start attacking.”After the game, Bluem pointed out the issues with his team early in the season, but said he felt the team came together at the right time on Sunday.“I think one of the issues with the team through the first four games have been a little bit of selfishness,” Bluem said. “They got to start looking for each other rather than thinking about themselves, and I think they did that when we were a man down. They collectively came together and played harder for each other, so that is a good step.”As the team prepares for San Diego on Friday, there are other areas Bluem wants to correct within the team.“I think we need to be better defensively,” Bluem said. “We have allowed too many goals. Our goalkeeper has made some mistakes, as well as our back four, in allowing goals.”With the win, Cunningham said OSU no longer faces the pressure of taking its first victory.“It’s hard to explain, once you lose a couple of games in a row, it seems like impossible to win,” said Cunningham. “So getting out of this hole was really important for us, and for us to win our first game, it was really important.” read more

Ibrahimovic enjoying crazy start to Holloywood

first_imgZlatan Ibrahimovic has revealed that he is enjoying his new “crazy start” to life at Hollywood after scoring a brace in his debut for LA GalaxyThe star made an instant impact on his debut in the MLS last Saturday by scoring a 40-yard stunner and then adding a second later on, as Galaxy overcame a 3-0 deficit to defeat Los Angeles FC 4-3.After an injury-ridden season at Manchester United, where the former Swede international’s appearances had become increasingly restrictive, Ibrahimovic is delighted to be playing regular football once more.“Every movie has a good start; hopefully it has a good ending also,” said Ibrahimovic, according to Sky Sports.“It has been a crazy start, playing the first game and scoring two goals – expectations are very high.“I demanded a lot from myself, I put a lot of pressure on myself because every time I play I want to perform. I want to do what I know I can do.“It will take time to adapt to everything but I’m just happy I’m playing football after my injury. I appreciate every time I put on my boots.”When asked who should play him in a movie, Ibrahimovic said: “Probably somebody like [Sylvester] Stallone.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…The forward admitted that he may be unable to watch the Manchester derby on Saturday due to the jet lag he is currently recovering from, as United will be looking to prevent their local rivals Manchester City from claiming the Premier League title.“I don’t know because of the jet lag, probably not at that time! Of course I follow all the teams I played with because I have a good relationship with every club I was at.” revealed the 36 year-old.“I just want positive things to happen for them and I wish them all the best of the luck. Hopefully things go well – let’s see if I’m awake.”But Ibrahimovic is confident that his former United coach Jose Mourinho will have a plan to spoil the celebrations for City.“I think they are pumped. They are looking forward to a game like that because obviously City are ahead by many points and the rest of the league is not playing for the Premier League trophy,” predicted Ibrahimovic.“They are playing for the Champions League and the places behind City so someone will want to give them a little shake like Liverpool did the other day.“I know the coach very well. He is very motivated for these kind of games and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t want them to become champions against him. He’ll make sure of that.”last_img read more

first_imgTwo Alaska Division of Forestry 20-person hand crews, the Pioneer Peak Hotshots and Gannett Glacier Fire Crews, arrived on Thursday to bolster local resources and began work to secure the southwest corner of the fire. Additional crews are expected to arrive on Friday from the University of Alaska Fairbanks Type 2 crew. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Swan Lake fire is now estimated at 8,400 acres after a reconnaissance flight Friday morning, an increase of over a thousand acres from the night before. In addition, smoke from the fire is visible from the Sterling Highway between mileposts 65 and 75. Motorists are urged to yield to fire apparatus entering the highway from the Alaska Division of Forestry station located at milepost 92. Today, firefighters will focus efforts on constructing miles of hose lays in order to capitalize on a series of natural and man-made barriers, including the 2017 East Fork burn scar. They will also establish spike camps to reduce travel time during this period of heavy tourist traffic. Crews observed shifting winds throughout the day and reported periods of increased fire behavior as they worked on the southwest section of the fire, preparing to defend the gas pipeline and improve indirect fireline along the East Fork of the Moose River. Saarloos: “The Fairbanks crew is coming in to help put in more lines and get them more pumps and hoses throughout that area.” center_img The temporary flight restriction (TFR) remains in place around the perimeter of the fire as heavy helicopters support ground resources.

Contact the Refuge Visitor Center by calling 907-260-2820 or by clicking http://www.kenai.fws.gov. Sarah Saarloos, with the Division of Forestry: “We did see a little over a thousand acre growth. Most of that growth occurred on Thursday when west winds pushed the fire further east into the Dave Spencer Unit of the Kenai Wilderness. That is away from the community of Sterling and north of the Sterling Highway.”  For current road conditions visit the Sterling Highway Rehabilitation Skilak Lake to Seterline Road construction website. A virtual joint information center (VJIC) has been set up online at www.kpboem.com for public information.

Netflix has announced plans to raise another US2

first_imgNetflix has announced plans to raise another US$2 billion in debt financing for content acquisitions, production and development.The proposed US$2.0 billion offering of senior notes will be used for “general corporate purposes,” according to the SVOD giant, which could also include investments, acquisitions and strategic transactions.The announcement marks Netflix’s latest bond offering as it continues to aggressively expand its content slate. Earlier this year it said it would spend some US$8 billion on content in 2018.In April Netflix priced a bond offering of US$1.9 billion and made similar senior notes offerings of €1.3 billion in April 2017, of US$1 billion in October 2016 and US$1.5 billion in 2015.In its most recent quarterly earnings announcement and letter to shareholders, Netflix said that its cash flow in Q3 was negative-US$859 million, compared to negative-US$465 million in the year ago quarter.“As a reminder, our growing mix of self-produced content, which requires us to fund content during the production phase prior to its release on Netflix, is the primary driver of our working capital needs that creates the gap between our positive net income and our free cash flow deficit,” said Netflix in its shareholders letter.“We recognise we are making huge cash investments in content, and we want to assure our investors that we have the same high confidence in the underlying economics as our cash investments in the past. These investments we see as very likely to help us to keep our revenue and operating profits growing for a very long time ahead.”Netflix added a record number of new members in the third quarter thanks to strong growth across all its markets including Asia, taking its total user-base to 137 million. Its revenues also grew 34.0% year-on-year to US$4.0 billion, while operating income was US$481 million compared to US$209 million a year earlier.last_img read more
