Jobim Carlos rules Iloilo Golf Challenge

first_img“It’s better to survive and win,” says Jobim Carlos. ICTSI JOBIM Carlos avoided a final round meltdown with timely conversions to capture the 2018 ICTSI Iloilo Golf Challenge at the Iloilo Golf and Country Club in Santa Barbara, Iloilo.Carlos had a wide advantage heading into the final day but he suddenly lost his touch on the tricky surface midway through the last 18 holes to allow Guido Van der Valk and Tim Stewart to pull within one four flights ahead heading to the stretch on Saturday.A runner-up in the ICTSI Negros Occidental Classic a week ago, Carlos got a lucky break when Van der Valk faded with back-to-back bogeys and Stewart flubbed a six-footer for par on the 17th and blew his bid for a playoff.“It’s better to survive and win,” said Carlos, who captured his third victory in the last two-and-a-half months after also ruling the Philippine Golf Tour Asia Riviera leg and the PGT Mindanao swing. “I played cautiously in the last six holes to avert going into playoff again,” said Carlos, referring to his loss to Negrense Juvic Pagunsan last week, a setback that only toughened up the young rising star.Carlos also turned in a couple of runner-up finishes and two top six efforts with his latest victory, firming up his hold of the Order of Merit lead heading to the last two tournaments of the circuit.Stewart wound up with a 68 and settled for second while American Lexus Keoninh rallied with a 67 and tied with Rene Menor and Van der Valk, who carded identical 69s, at 275.Joenard Rates and Jhonnel Ababa flinched, with the former also fumbling with a 72 and the latter limping with a 73 to drop to joint sixth at 276 with Reymon Jaraula and Justin Quiban, who fought back with 66 and 68, respectively./PNlast_img read more

Update On Safe Standing

first_imgRight from the outset in our plans to rebuild Ashton Gate we have tried to find a way to bring safe standing to the stadium. Since we helped drive that agenda in the second half of 2013 and into 2014, we have followed with great interest the recent discussions on the subject.In August, the Liberal Democrats called for a change in the law to allow Premier League and Championship clubs to introduce safe standing. Football League chief executive Shaun Harvey stated: “The first logical step would be for safe standing products, such as rail seating, to be licensed for use by the relevant authorities. This would enable one of the 21 Football League clubs that is not currently required by law to have an all-seater stadium to install a pilot scheme at its ground.”Martin Griffiths, chairman of Bristol Sport, said: “While we understand that this is the next logical step in the campaign, it is clear Ashton Gate does not comply with the above criteria to be one of the “tester stadia”. There is nothing that we can do about that. We are required to comply with the current law to provide an all-seater stadium.“It is frustrating, but does not mean we are giving up on safe standing coming to the stadium. It does mean, however, that we will be unable to install rail seating right from the first opening of the redeveloped stadium as we need to start placing orders for all the components of both the new South and Dolman stands very shortly. We have designed these areas to facilitate a retrofit of rail seating if and when the law changes. So for now, we need to keep the stadium build programme on time, while allowing for a retrofit once we get the green light from the relevant authorities.”Bristol Sport would like to thank in particular the Bristol City Supporters Club & Trust and Bristol Rugby Supporters who have worked closely with us on this and their expertiselast_img read more

LSU finds rhythm in time for Ole Miss

first_imgBATON ROUGE – LSU may not be back in the mix, but at least it is in the bowl.The Tigers got bowl eligible with a dominating, 41-3 victory over Kentucky on Saturday night for their sixth win and returned to the national polls on Sunday afternoon just in time for No. 3 Ole Miss and ESPN’s College GameDay on Saturday.LSU (6-2, 2-2 Southeastern Conference) was ranked No. 23 in the USA Today coaches’ poll and No. 24 in the Associated Press media poll after falling out of the polls with a 41-7 loss at Auburn on Oct. 4.“I think what is happening is this football team is coming together,” LSU coach Les Miles said after his team won its second straight game. “We are improving. We are in a position to play better, and I think this football team is looking forward to that. I think the timing is right.”The Rebels (7-0, 4-0 SEC), who are off to their best start since their only perfect season in 1962 at 10-0, will play LSU in Tiger Stadium at 6:15 p.m. Saturday on ESPN, and ESPN’s College GameDay pregame show decided late Saturday to broadcast on Saturday from the Parade Grounds on the LSU campus from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m.LSU was chosen for GameDay’s broadcast site for the 10th time since 1996 and first time since Nov. 3, 2012, when the No. 5 Tigers lost, 21-17, to No. 1 Alabama in the final moments.LSU is 5-4 at home with GameDay, which began in ESPN’s studios in Bristol, Connecticut, in 1987 before moving to on-campus sites in 1993. The Tigers have been the visiting team when GameDay is in town another six times and won four of those, including over Alabama in Tuscaloosa 2005 and in 2011. In neutral site appearances for national championship games and season openers, LSU is 5-1. Overall, the Tigers are 14-7 with GameDay in town.The Tigers have never hosted Ole Miss for GameDay, but it has been a special season so far for the Rebels, who defeated No. 1 Alabama, 23-17, on Oct. 4 for the first time since 2003. Ole Miss will bring to Tiger Stadium its best-ever overall and SEC records. The Rebels will also enter Tiger Stadium with their highest ranking since also being No. 3 in 1963 when it was 4-0-1 on the season and beat LSU, 37-3. Saturday’s game will be the first LSU-Ole Miss pairing in which the Rebels are the higher ranked team since 1999 when No. 25 Ole Miss beat unranked LSU, 42-23, in Tiger Stadium.Ole Miss, which held Tennessee to zero rushing yards in a 34-3 win Saturday in Oxford, Miss., is No. 1 in the nation in scoring defense with 10.6 points allowed a game and is No. 8 in the in nation in total defense with 290 yards allowed a game. The Rebels are fifth in the nation in turnover margin at plus-10 and are tied for first nationally with 15 interceptions. Senior cornerback Senquez Golson is second in the nation with seven interceptions. Ole Miss is also sixth in the nation in rush defense with 97.1 yards allowed a game.“They’re phenomenal,” Ole Miss quarterback Bo Wallace said of his team’s defense after the Tennessee game. “They’re fun to watch. Before the season, I knew they were good. I didn’t know they were this good. All I have to do is take care of the ball.”Wallace has done just that as he has not turned the ball over in four SEC games and is No. 9 in the nation in passing efficiency at 163.0 on 137-of-209 passing for 1,899 yards and 17 touchdowns against six interceptions.“I’m looking forward to it. They have a spread offense and some pretty good receivers, and they’re going to compete,” LSU defensive back Rickey Jefferson said.Rickey JeffersonRickey Jefferson“We have to get over this win because how we practice is going to be how we play against Ole Miss,” said safety Jamal Adams.Jamal AdamsJamal AdamsLSU quarterback Anthony Jennings, who improved to 7-1 as a starter, is 60th in the nation in passing efficiency at 132.1 on 64-of-128 passing for 1,048 yards and seven touchdowns against three interceptions. He has not turned the ball over in his last three games and was 7 of 14 for 120 yards with a 32-yard touchdown to wide receiver Travin Dural Saturday.Anthony JenningsAnthony Jennings“Every game we get more and more comfortable with the offense and the guys around us,” Jennings said. “This game was a building step to getting better each week.

West Ham player says he’s ‘collecting fruits’ of work, reveals Manuel…

first_imgThe midfielder has made his only international appearance in 2015, and due to his great form for West Ham United, he’s caught the Seleção’s eyes once again.His comeback was a subject for Seleção SporTV this week, where the player was interviewed and talked a little about his feelings around returning to the team.“It is a very good feeling, a dream come true, a lot of work that I have been doing and collecting these fruits,” Felipe Anderson told Sportv. “It’s not only this year that I have this focus, it’s been for long time that I have been working to reach this moment and this is an achievement that makes me very happy and very motivated.”Journalist André Rizek pointed out that Felipe Anderson is West Ham’s top scorer, although he wasn’t much of a scorer during his time at Santos, when manager Muricy Ramalho would always demand that from him.“Professor Muricy always pressured me very much for not entering the box, asked me why I did not get in the box to score goals. I knew I had to improve on that, but of course I always had a style of creating plays. But I worked hard on this issue of arriving and making the final move to receive the ball. Of entering the box and receiving the cross.“And now I’m accomplishing this feat of scoring several goals and being a top scorer of the team. I believe that with him I learned a lot, knowing that it’s important not only to make assists, but also contribute directly with goals for the team. It’s important for an attacking player to score goals. And this year things are happening, the goals are coming out, everything I learned from him I have put into practice throughout my career.”Embed from Getty ImagesThen the pundits, who admittedly don’t watch much of the Premier League, have asked Felipe Anderson in which positions has he been playing in so they could analyse what can he bring to the team. The player has claimed he can play as an advanced midfielder or as a winger, and explained that he has changed positions after signing for West Ham.Manuel Pellegrini’s tactical decisions saw the Brazilian change sides.“I played a lot of time in Italy, five years, always on the right. This year now at West Ham, I talked to the manager and he said he wanted me to play on the left, that he saw me very well there. And it worked. So I think I feel free to play in every attacking position.”by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.

Ravens fans vs. Orioles fans – are we two birds of a different feather?

first_imgIt goes without saying that Baltimore isn’t quite yet embracing this 2012 version of Baltimore Orioles pennant fever. No matter how dramatic the victories or how unlikely this late August run for postseason glory seems, nothing about The Birds has moved the sports fans of Maryland.Even into the great beyond via the long reach of MASN – not to mention the reach into your pockets every month like a public utility – for whatever reason people aren’t coming back in droves to give King Peter Angelos their money to watch the likes of Adam Jones, Matt Wieters, Nick Markakis and even boy wonder Manny Machado, who has been worth the price of admission alone this week.Oh, I know I’m being “Negative Nestor” by even writing this blog when the Orioles are winning baseball games and on the verge of a sweep of the hated Boston Red Sox. But every time the TV cameras pan the more than half-empty stadium, I can’t help but thinking the same thing you’re thinking: “I wonder why people aren’t going to Camden Yards to support this winning team?”Yeah, we all thought Camden Yards would be packed once the Orioles started winning. And as the team closes a 10-game homestand tonight in full control of a wild card berth and still within striking distance of the New York Yankees, a true “pennant fever” atmosphere has yet to emerge in Baltimore.It seems that a few months of prosperity hasn’t wiped out 14 years of bad vibes, bad baseball, steroid needles, lies from the owner and the emergence of the Washington Nationals as the regional team with marketing legs and, dare we say, “Natitude.”And here’s where we’ll piss off both side of the Baltimore fence.I have one question for you: “Are you excited about the Baltimore Ravens’ upcoming season?”My gut is that you just yelled, “YES!”My gut also says that your neighbor is excited, your cousins, your co-workers, the folks in your social group – wherever your friends and loved ones reside — they’re ready to don purple and are counting down the minutes until the 7 p.m. kickoff on Monday, Sept. 10 vs. the Cincinnati Bengals.I’m not sure when it became sort of fashionable to only support one of the two teams in Baltimore and perhaps for the younger generation there has never been a good time to embrace the Orioles. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m ready for Ravens’ season and that my love for the purple guys has superseded my spirit and energy for the Orioles. But I do love them both. And I will support them both equally for what it means for Baltimore to have a winning sports team and a chance to hang red, white and blue bunting here in October.And, somehow during this emergence of the purple birds of Baltimore since 1996, this weird kind of divide has occurred here in the Charm City where some folks only have enough “love” – if not dollars and time and energy – for one of the two teams.Do you know people who love the Orioles and have no use for football or the Ravens? Almost to the point where they root against the purple birds in football season?I do.And, conversely, from what I can tell there are a myriad of people everywhere around town who are fervent Baltimore Ravens fans and have long-since given up following the Orioles on a nightly basis, even now that the team on the field is representative of the community’s desire for hard work, overachieving and beating the Yankees and Red Sox.I know many, many people who have purple “Man Caves” – an entire kingdom and closets dedicated to all things Baltimore Ravens. There are whole stores like The Raven Zone dedicated to selling merchandise year-round.I don’t know anyone who has a basement that is an homage to the Orioles these days, despite the fact that you get 162 chances to enjoy games vs. just 16 that count.I also admit that the amount of hours necessary to follow the Orioles is extraordinary. It’s a lifestyle commitment to watch four hours of baseball six nights a week for six months. It’s almost like a full-time job if you’re going to vest into MLB fandom.And certainly this isn’t a new phenomenon for sports teams anywhere in America. It seems that there’s plenty of love for all four sports teams in places like Boston, Philadelphia, etc. where the seasons and the reasons all seem to blur together into a full calendar of activity and passion.But it might be time to ask, “Where’s the emotional investment for Baltimore fans?”Is it possible that you only have room in your heart — or wallet — for one successful local team?last_img read more
