It was our privilege to be part of the community and we thank you for being our loyal guests for the past 37 years,” the post said.“This place is a landmark restaurant.

It’s a 10-minute drive from here at Central Avenue,” Mysolveck said. They hope to have the bar and 180 seat restaurant remodeled by January.The symbolic English taxicab and red phone booth out front at 25 West Walnut Street have long welcomed visitors into the cozy rooms of the English-style pub.

MANCHESTER, England (CMC) – West Indies’ dismal One-Day International form continued with a seven-wicket defeat to England in the critical opener at Old Trafford here yesterday, a result that condemned the Caribbean side to a 10-team qualifying tournament in order to reach the 2019 Cricket World Cup.Chris Gayle launches his innings with a volley of sixes.Needing to sweep the five-match series in order to achieve direction qualification for the showpiece, West Indies put themselves under pressure when they mustered 203 for nine in the contest reduced to 42 overs per side following a two-hour delayed start due to a wet outfield.Captain Jason Holder top-scored with an unbeaten 41 off 33 deliveries, while opener Chris Gayle, in his first ODI in two years, belted a typically aggressive 37 off 27 balls.Stylish right-hander Shai Hope carved out an attractive 35 while Rovman Powell got 23, but no other Windies batsman passed 20.As expected, England made light work of the target, coasting home in the 31st over with Jonny Bairstow celebrating his promotion the top of the order with 100 not out – his maiden ODI century.Test captain Joe Root chipped in with a polished 54 while all-rounder Ben Stokes arrived at the end to help formalise the result with a cameo unbeaten 23 off 15 balls.The defeat was the 16th in the last 21 ODIs for West Indies and their 12th loss in their last 17 outings to England.West Indies, two-time former World champions, will now battle minnows Ireland, Afghanistan and Zimbabwe, along with four teams from the ICC World Cricket League Championship and another two from the ICC World Cricket League Division Two, in a tournament next year in order to reach the World Cup.Opting to bat first, West Indies were given a rousing start by Gayle and Evin Lewis (11) who put on 45 off 33 deliveries.The left-handed Gayle, dropped at second slip by Root off the third ball of the innings from pacer Chris Woakes before he had scored, looked in great touch, smashing two fours and three straight sixes to dominate the stand.However, Lewis pulled a long hop from Moeen Ali to Alex Hales at square leg in the off-spinner’s first over, and Gayle followed 20 balls later with 10 runs added when he holed out to deep mid-off to a brilliant running catch by Root off Woakes.Hope stroked five boundaries as he consolidated in a 50-run, third-wicket partnership with Marlon Samuels before he too perished softly, whipping an ordinary delivery from seamer Stokes off his hip to be caught at square leg by Bairstow in the 24th over.Samuels, who consumed 46 balls in making a boundary-less 17, departed 12 balls later at 107 for four in the 26th over brushing a leg-side catch behind off Stokes.Powell and Jason Mohammed (18) then propped up the innings by adding a run-a-ball 42 for the fifth wicket but once they were separated, West Indies lost five wickets for 53 runs to decline.It was left to Holder to wag the tail, the right-hander thumping five fours to push his side beyond the 200-run mark.Stokes finished with three for 43 while leg-spinner Adil Rashid (2-31) and Woakes (2-41) were the other wicket-takers.Requiring a strong opening burst, the Windies claimed Alex Hales cheaply for 19 when Lewis held a juggling catch at point off seamer Jerome Taylor with the score on 31 in the fifth over.However, the joy was short-lived as Bairstow and Root came together in a 125-run, second-wicket stand which killed off the Windies’ hopes of a victory.All told, Bairstow faced 97 balls and counted 11 fours in a well-paced knock, reaching his landmark in the last over of the game with a punch to deep over off off-spinner Ashley Nurse for three runs.Root, meanwhile, struck four boundaries off 53 balls before chopping on to seamer Kesrick Williams (2-50) in the 24th over and captain Eoin Morgan’s lean run continued when he nicked one behind off the same bowler three overs later, to perish for 10.But Stokes provided a swift end to the encounter, lashing a four and a pair of sixes – the last of which sealed the rout for the hosts.WEST INDIES inningsC.

WITH the novel coronavirus pandemic jeopardising the start of 2022 World Cup qualifying for teams in the CONCACAF region, FIFA vice-president Victor Montagliani noted their already revised format will change to align with the compressed calendar, thanks to the COVID-19 pandemic. Montagliani acknowledged the complexity of relaunching competition as domestic leagues; national teams and overlapping international tournaments compete for space in a compressed timeline.The CONCACAF president did, however, warned that it is still way too early to make any assumptions about when competition can restart, though the next FIFA window is in early September.The regional qualifying phase, known as the hexagonal, is scheduled to start in September. But in the wake of international windows in March and June cancelled and uncertainty about the resumption of sports in general, qualifiers in September and beyond might not occur as scheduled.The likelihood of international matches of any kind in September is “not very high,” said Montagliani.FIFA, football’s global governing body, recently formed a working group to look into changing the international windows for World Cup qualifiers and other competitions.Montagliani told reporters during a conference call that CONCACAF is looking into “the possibilities and probabilities. If this calendar is going to change, how is it going to change and how will that affect the format of the World Cup qualifying, which in likelihood will happen.”Under current guidelines, the six regional teams ranked highest by FIFA are scheduled to play one another home and away for a total of 10 matches apiece between this September and June 2021.Three would earn automatic berths to the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, and a fourth would enter a playoff against the winner of a second-tier regional competition in fall 2021. That survivor would advance to an international playoff in spring 2022.The World Cup will not take place until November and December 2022 because of oppressive heat in Qatar in the summer, yet Montagliani said, calendar issues are “piling up at our doorstep. We may have to look at reformatting how this looks. Whether it’s a hexagonal or some other shape that is part of a kid’s block set, I don’t know.“We just don’t know what this thing is going to look like until we know what the (FIFA) calendar is going to look like and how this calendar fits into our entire ecosystem.”Although World Cup qualifying is the most visible competition, the CONCACAF president said the idea is to ensure that everyone is given a fair chance at qualifying for the world’s most-view single sporting event.CONCACAF also must reschedule qualifiers for the 2021 Gold Cup and the last phase of the inaugural Nations League, whose semifinals; third-place game and final were scheduled June 4-7 at three Texas venues and serve as the last tune-ups before World Cup qualifying.Also, Montagliani said the vote to choose the 2023 Women’s World Cup location, initially scheduled for June, might take place in September. The candidates are a joint-bid of Australia and New Zealand; Japan; Brazil; and Colombia.
Published on March 15, 2014 at 9:14 pm Contact Jesse: [email protected] | @dougherty_jesse BALTIMORE — Syracuse held a comfortable four-goal lead heading into halftime but it was quickly erased by a one-man machine.Sophomore attack Ryan Brown spearheaded a second-half charge by the Blue Jays, after the Syracuse defense stymied Johns Hopkins in the first frame.A running goal 52 seconds into the third quarter gave him a hat trick for the day and cut into the Orange’s lead, but Brown was far from done. He’d go on to score two more in a five-minute span and then three more in the fourth before his valiant output fell short in a losing effort.“Offensively, we had one guy with eight goals and that’s great,” JHU head coach Dave Pietramala said. “But where was everybody else?”Brown accounted for eight of No. 3 Johns Hopkins’ (5-1) 10 goals in its 12-10 loss to No. 10 Syracuse (4-2, 0-2 Atlantic Coast) at Homewood Stadium on Saturday. He also netted six of the Blue Jays’ seven second-half goals and put a damper on what could have been the Syracuse defense’s first complete performance against a top-flight team this season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“He’s got such a quick release on his shot and he places it really well,” SU head coach John Desko said. “He really finds the space within their offense and obviously the guys look to him because he finishes well.“I think he played really well and is a really smart player.”While Syracuse’s offense has frequently been touted as the team’s strongest area, its back line is undoubtedly it’s most experienced. With redshirt sophomore Brandon Mullins, junior Sean Young and seniors Dominic Lamolinara and Matt Harris — Desko shifted Harris to close defender against the Blue Jays — the unit has the makeup to anchor the team but had underachieved in the Orange’s first five games.That includes yielding 16 goals to then-No. 11 Albany and then-No. 5 Maryland in back-to-back games, and 17 to then-No. 4 Virginia. But after giving up just three in the first half against JHU, it looked like the defense was turning the corner.But while the back line did rectify some of its recent struggles, Brown’s performance left a stain on the progress.“Ryan Brown just took great shots,” Lamolinara said.In the 60-minute contest, Brown scored in all kinds of ways.He beat Lamolinara near side. Over his opposite shoulder. Through his legs. Once in a man-up situation. Twice when he wasn’t in the net. And on two occasions, started personal 3–0 runs — once in the third and again in the fourth.And while it was enough to place another mile marker on what has been an early-season marathon for the Syracuse defense, it didn’t provide any tangible results.Said Brown: “It’s great but at the end of the day, we still didn’t get the job done.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
Published on February 22, 2020 at 6:20 pm Contact Michael: [email protected] | @MikeJMcCleary Syracuse (15-12, 8-8 Atlantic Coast) beat Georgia Tech (13-14, 7-9) 79-72 in a game separated by two completely different SU performances in the first and second halves. The Orange got off to a horrid start and spent a majority of the first half pleading for foul calls. But Georgia Tech’s similar futility allowed it to stick around. In the second half, that small deficit flipped to the Orange’s advantage when they came back and won.Here are three takeaways from the game.Youth (slow) movementIn the first half, Syracuse couldn’t get anything going at all. So, around the 12-minute mark, SU head coach Jim Boeheim turned to a lineup featuring Brycen Goodine, Howard Washington, Jesse Edwards and Quincy Guerrier all sharing the floor together. The less-experienced and usual bench replacements now demanded attention on the floor, and for a short period, they at least matched the futility of those in the game before them.Each had its own flash: Goodine showed off a step-back on a missed jumper. Edwards battled for loose offensive boards and got to the line. Guerrier muscled his way to the rim. Washington kept a steady pace as the primary ball-handler. Though Syracuse’s normal lineup is a youth movement of its own (every player on the team can return next season if they choose to do so), in recent games the lower rotational players have been checking in earlier with an eye on the seasons to come.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNot that same ElijahThe last time Syracuse played Georgia Tech, Elijah Hughes scored 26 first-half points and 33 total. He displayed every bit of the No. 1 scoring potential SU expected from him this year. But this version of Georgia Tech, though not much different in personnel, led to a much different output all over the floor for Syracuse. Hughes struggled early, and despite being the only player on the Orange to reach double-figures in the first half, most of his points came near the tail-end of the opening 20 minutes. With little support around him, the isolation play Hughes fell into during some of his worst games sunk him early on. He tallied a few timely assists to cut the lead early in the second half, but the scoring punch of the two teams’ last meeting wasn’t there.Big finishAfter a rough first half, Syracuse looked like a new team in the second. The Orange made up for their deficit quickly, and then in the final 10 minutes secured the win they never lost. Joe Girard III, Marek Dolezaj and Hughes all turned in solid outputs. A game that at one point looked as if it would be a blowout loss at the expense of SU turned into a seven-point win behind the Orange’s 64% shooting percentage in the second half.

Vine/@MattNorlanderMichigan State nearly lost its game against Minnesota on one of the worst fouls you’ll see. Instead, the Spartans lucked out, and have a chance to redeem themselves in overtime. With his Golden Gophers down three and two seconds remaining in the game, Carlos Morris drilled a three-pointer and was fouled by Michigan State’s Gavin Schilling. Foul up three. But not like that. Izzo not even registering what happened. https://t.co/BaMUDf0LVr— Matt Norlander (@MattNorlander) February 27, 2015With the game now tied at 78, Morris had a chance to win the game at the free throw line, but was unable to complete the four-point play. Instead, this great Big Ten battle has gone to overtime. Minnesota leads 81-80 with 3:32 remaining in the game.
Louisville just finished its regular season with a 59-57 victory over No. 2 Virginia at the KFC Yum! Center. What made the Cards’ victory so remarkable was just how they got it done.After Virginia’s Malcolm Brogdon put the Cavs up 57-56 on a three-pointer with 16 seconds to play, Louisville had a chance to win it. The Cavaliers doubled UL point guard Terry Rozier off of a pick-and-roll, leaving big man Mangok Mathiang wide-open. Since January 31st, Mathiang had made just one of 16 field goal attempts. He had not attempted a shot in 14 minutes today. Naturally, he swished the foul line jumper off Rozier’s feed like it was second nature.Virginia’s foul-court inbounds pass landed out of bounds, and Rozier finished things off with a free throw. Louisville’s win clinched the No. 4 seed in the upcoming ACC Tournament, and a coveted double-bye into the quarterfinals.All thanks to the 6-foot-10 sophomore from Australia who found his way into the scoring column at the most opportune time.
