Southland Gives Back: Nicholls

first_imgAs part of the “Southland Gives Back” initiative, the Southland Conference will profile a community service outing from each of our 13 member institutions each weekday from Dec. 6 to 22. For the latest information on Nicholls Athletics and SAAC, follow them on Twitter @geauxcolonels and @Nicholls_SAAC. For the second straight year, SAAC collected canned goods during three men’s basketball games – Dec. 3 vs. Idaho, Dec. 16 vs. Culver-Stockton and Dec. 20 vs. Mobile. The canned goods will be going to Good Samaritan’s Food Bank in Thibodaux. Last year, the Thibodaux Food Bank assisted 1,815 families, representing 3,920 individuals. The women’s basketball team hosted a toy drive on Dec. 18 as they welcomed the nationally-ranked Baylor Lady Bears to Stopher Gymnasium. The Colonels then wrapped all the gifts and delivered them to the Start Corporation, which will distribute the presents to families in the community.center_img THIBODAUX, La. – The Nicholls State University Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC) took part in the annual Southland Gives Back initiative by organizing food and toy donations for local families in need. Southland Gives Back is one of the many community service projects Nicholls Athletics is involved in. Earlier this year, the Colonels lent a hand to help out their Southland friends who were affected by Hurricane Harvey.  SAAC collected enough donated goods to fill three vans and the bottom of the volleyball team’s charter bus. The donations were delivered to Texas A&M University-Corpus Christi when the volleyball squad made its two-match Texas trip in late September.last_img read more

Gnabry hits FOUR as Germans completely embarrass Tottenham

first_imgWhy did Niklas Süle do Serge Gnabry like that?! 😂😩Who kicked his hat-trick ball into the crowd?! 😭😭 pic.twitter.com/hyeK6ditzD— Football on BT Sport (@btsportfootball) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:06 pmRIO FERDINAND has described this night for Spurs as being “DESTROYED” – and you can’t argue with that.He says Poch needs to look in the mirror and do some soul searching.Before tonight it had already been a difficult season, with a defeat here to Newcastle in the league and an embarrassing Carabao Cup exit to Colchester standing out.But this is something else. If you conceded seven goals at home you’re not on the ropes but down on the canvas and facing the count.

It needs a good overhaul. It needs a complete change. Maybe even go three at the back. “This is not working for Spurs, it’s not been working for weeks but this system is wrong. The tactics are wrong. Bayern Munich have been able to take the whole back four out of the game.”Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:09 pmGREAT scenes after the final whistle if you are a Bayern Munich fan.Serge Gnabry is understandably the focus – but his team-mates are celebrating in a rather weird way. bants 87 – Lewandowski again.⚪ #THFC 2-6 #FCBayern 🔴— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 1, 2019 83 – Goal for Bayern.⚪ #THFC 2-5 #FCBayern 🔴— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 1, 2019 WHAT A PLAYER! 🚀#TOTFCB 1-2 pic.twitter.com/xhBUUOTvIM— FC Bayern English (@FCBayernEN) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 8:47 pmSPURS 1 – 2 BAYERN – GOAL!!!45 mins: It was coming from Bayern and it’s that man Lewandowski!It looks like Spurs have dealt with the trouble but they fail to get it clear with Ndombele mostly to blame.Lewandowski then turns on the edge of the box and pings it into the bottom corner.And that’s half-time!Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 8:45 pmSPURS 1 – 1 BAYERN44 mins: Gnabry puts a stinger onto the hands of Lloris as his cross from the left turns into a fierce shot. The Spurs keeper did well to get that clear of danger.Coutinho fancies his chances with a shot from range but it’s blocked.When it comes back to the ex-Liverpool ace – who’s only lost twice in 13 appearances against Spurs – he’s brought down by Sissoko who’s booked for his scissor tackle.Lewandowski steps up to take the 30-yard free-kick but his strike hits the wall and goes behind for a corner.Load more entries… 88 – Another.⚪ #THFC 2-7 #FCBayern 🔴— Tottenham Hotspur (@SpursOfficial) October 1, 2019Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:13 pmBAYERN MUNICH are billing themselves as World Class after that.

Here’s what he told BT Sport: “I don’t need too much time to explain. We played 30 mins well, started well, pressing high. But we were unlucky that we conceded in the first minute of the half.“They were very clinical. After we scored the penalty for two we had chances to score the third. But from the 83rd and 88th minute we conceded three more goals.“In football it can happen. Every single touch went in. We are very disappointed and very upset but we have to stay together. I think we are strong in our mentality.“Maybe you are bored about my speech but football is today not yesterday. It is always is about the show. You have to do it today and tomorrow. It is not about experiences and what happened three months ago.“We are disappointed. Every single touch from Bayern was clinical. They scored with every touch. It is tough to accept. You have to move on.“This type of situation you have to face. It is tough and you need to be strong and keep going. Stay together, help each other and be all together. When you receive this type of result it is important to bounce back and believe in yourself. It is the only way to recover.”Simon Rice2 Oct 2019, 10:27 pmTHE SUN’S Neil Ashton was here at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium to witness that hiding.You can read his take on it here as he writes how Spurs were “battered” and made to “look like novices”.

Winks loses the ball in midfield and the ex-Arsenal man beats Lloris once more.He then follows it up with a cheeky “stirring the pot” celebration.

Hope Solo on the Moment She Is Suspended for Olympics Outburst: ‘Seventeen F—— Years and It’s Over’

first_img“Seventeen f—— years and it’s over,” an angry, teary-eyed Solo shouts in an exclusive clip from the Fullscreen series Keeping Score, obtained by PEOPLE.A camera crew from the documentary series was on hand at a Seattle hotel to capture Solo’s reaction after her Aug. 24 meeting with United States Coach Jill Ellis and the federation’s chief executive, Dan Flynn. The decision to discipline Solo came after she called the Swedish team “a bunch of cowards” after they eliminated the United States in the quarterfinals of the Rio Olympics.”Six months suspension,” Solo says as she hugs her husband, former NFL player Jerramy Stevens, in a nearby hotel conference room. “No pay. Terminated contract. Effective immediately.”Solo, widely regarded as one of the best goalkeepers in the world, then turns from her husband and glares at the camera, pounds her hand on a table and says: “Terminated contract. Not just a suspension.”U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati said the comments Solo made after the loss to Sweden were “unacceptable and do not meet the standard of conduct we require from our National Team players.”And while many applauded the decision, some have questioned whether Solo, who has been crusading for better pay for female players, was punished more harshly than a male player would have been.Three days after she learned of her suspension, the Seattle Reign FC of the National Women’s Soccer League, announced that Solo had been “granted a personal leave” before the team faced off against the Portland Thorns.The Keeping Score series consists of six episodes that document Solo, Megan Rapinoe and Crystal Dunne’s journeys before, at and after the Summer Games through self-shot footage, along crew cameras.This last episode in the series, dealing with Solo’s suspension, will air September 2.last_img read more

The biggest commotion in 10 years

first_imgIn campaign 13-14, Real Madrid and Barcelona met again in the match that decided the title. The whites won by 1-2. A year later, Atlético de Madrid appealed to whites in the round of 16, but Barcelona reached the final and again lifted the title beating Athletic (1-3). Madrid made a mistake in Carranza, with the alignment of Cherishev in the first leg of the round of 16. It cost him the elimination in that campaign 15-16. Barcelona, ​​meanwhile, again added one more cup to its history by winning in the final to Sevilla 2-0. In May 2017, Barcelona revalidated its title, with a win over Alavés by 3-1. Madrid had stayed before, had been eliminated by Celta in the quarterfinals. Barcelona chained its fourth consecutive title in the 17-18 season. He beat Sevilla in the final 5-0, while Madrid had left their options in the quarterfinals, when Leganés eliminated him. Last season Barcelona could not repeat. Valencia beat him in the final 2-1. The Catalans could be in the match for the title after knocking down Real Madrid in the semifinals. Since that season, the presence of one of the two greats in the semifinals has been continued and one has always been in the final. In fact, in 2011 both played the title in a final that Cristiano decided with a header. In 2012, Barcelona beat Athletic in the Madrid final 3-0, while Real Madrid had been left out against the Barca team in the quarterfinals. In the 2013 final, Atlético took the Bernabéu in a cup butt derby that won 1-2. Barcelona had reached the semifinals, where he lost to Madrid. Historical commotion in the Cup. Neither Madrid nor Barcelona will be in the semifinals, but the thing is not there. Neither will be either of the two teams that accompanied them in the recent Spanish Super Cup played in Saudi Arabia. Since the 2003 edition, one of those four teams had disputed the seminars. The Cup to a match has ended the status quo of the competition. The Cup to a match has led the two most powerful teams in Spanish football. Neither Real Madrid nor Barcelona will be in the semifinals of the competition after being eliminated by Real Sociedad and Barcelona, ​​respectively. The new format has given rise to several surprises, the last two, the failures of two teams manufactured to add titles. This year the Cup will not decorate its showcases. It is a historical circumstance. La Real and Athletic have ended a decade of hegemony of the two greats. Since the 2009-10 season edition, at least one of them did not miss the semifinals. On that occasion both of them also missed that round, they had fallen, in fact, long before.Madrid crashed in front of Alcorcón, on another mythical night of Spanish football, in the round of 16. Barcelona fell later, in the knockout stages, to double match against Sevilla. In fact, Hispanics were proclaimed champions of that 2010 edition by beating Atlético 0-2 in a final played at the Camp Nou. The rojiblancos had obtained their place in the final after eliminating Racing de Santander. Sevilla, meanwhile, ended the hopes of Getafe.last_img read more
