Report: Bristol City U23s 2-1 Charlton Athletic U23s

first_imgAlfie Doughty equalised from close range for the Addicks, but no matter what the outcome of the game, City had already qualified for the first of the knockout stages.City headed into their final group game level on points with Liverpool, who had already played their sixth and final match, therefore Luke Williams’ side knew at least a point would be enough to finish top of Group G.HEGELER RETURNSJens Hegeler captained the side as the defender marked his first start for five months after recovering from a knee injury. Milan Djuric also played for half an hour in the cup clash at City’s Failand training base, signalling his return from a groin injury.It was the visitors who went closest to scoring first after Jordan Zemura darted down the left before picking out Albie Morgan but his teammate curled an effort over the bar as he opted for placement into the top corner.Djuric should have put City ahead after George Nurse whipped in a driven, low cross. The Bosnian international seemed certain to score from close range but the ball tapped off the post. The keeper Jordan Beeney may have got a touch too before the ball was eventually scrambled away.But City were ahead after quarter of an hour; Woodrow picked the ball up to the left of goal and unleashed an unstoppable shot beyond Beeney.It was then a tale of two keepers as City shotstopper Jojo Wollacott first denied Alex Willis, before Beeney produced a smart save of his own to deny Gustav Engvall after he burst through on goal.ADDICKS EQUALISECharlton Athletic made it 1-1 through Doughty’s close-range shot shortly after the half-hour mark. A cutting through pass found Morgan whose shot flicked off Wollacott before pinging off the post. Doughty was ready to pounce for the rebound, smashing the ball into the open net.Already-qualified City came out for the second half far from content with a point and showed early signs of their pursuit for more goals: first, Woodrow clipped a delightful ball into Engvall, whose shot had to be tipped on to the post, and Woodrow fired off target shortly after.Chances came few and far between in the crisp and windy conditions, that was until substitute Antoine Semenyo turned and unleashed a powerful drive at goal which was finely pushed out for a corner from Beeney. But it was from that corner City’s decisive goal came.CITY WINNEREdwards, who earlier replaced Djuric, was the man of the moment as he received the ball from the City corner. He took the ball beyond a handful of Charlton players before striking the ball into the net.City held on to their winning scoreline, with only a Brendan Sarpong-Wiredu header a threat which Wollacott easily held late on.City complete their Group G journey with 13 points from four wins, one draw and one defeat.FULL-TIME THOUGHTSSpeaking after the whistle, U23s coach Williams said: “It was a good win. We were already through the group stage but the boys continued to play in a professional, competitive manner so that was good to see.”There was a lot of quality which they (first-team players) brought to the game. It’s credit to their attitudes that they are willing to come and play with the younger lads, in this type of game and they managed themselves immaculately.”They bring calmness and quality on the ball, leadership and their reading of the game. They help the players to understand different scenarios.”WILLIAMS RELISHING NEXT ROUNDCity take on Swansea in the next round of the PL Cup.Williams added: “I’m very much looking forward to playing Swansea. It’s going to be difficult, it always has been against Swansea, they are a strong outfit so it will be a great game.”All knockout ties, from the last 16 through to the final, will be one-off matches. If the teams are level after 90 minutes, they will be decided by extra-time and then penalties if there is still no winner.last_img read more

Mike Sorensen: It’s an amazing time of year for sports

first_imgE-mail: sor@desnews.com You usually don’t think about the second week in April being the ultimate sports week of the year, but it’s amazing to think of all the different sports that are being packed in this time of year.Let’s see, we had baseball, college football, indoor football, college basketball, pro basketball, pro hockey, college hockey, soccer, gymnastics, golf, tennis, car racing, volleyball and track and field all contested over the weekend.No wonder we had a 20-page sports section yesterday.On a local basis alone, just about everything you can think of was played over the weekend.• The Salt Lake Bees had their home opener Friday night, drawing their second-largest opening-day crowd ever, and games Saturday and Sunday.• Real Salt Lake soccer team had a real good result for a change as RSL crushed D.C. United by a score of 4-0 at Rice-Eccles Stadium.• The University of Utah women’s gymnastics team qualified for nationals for the 33rd straight year by finishing first in Saturday night’s regional in Minneapolis. Next up are the nationals next week in Georgia.• The two-time defending MWC champion BYU football team concluded its spring drills with a scrimmage among its second and third-teamers, which attracted an impressive crowd of more than 16,000.• The Utah Grizzlies hockey team opened the playoffs last night in Fresno and will continue tonight with the first home playoff game on Wednesday night.• The Utah Jazz blew out Denver Saturday night to keep their slim Western Conference title hopes alive.• In the bad news category, the Utah Blaze indoor football team scored a bunch of points again — 62 — but still lost by 17 points to the Los Angeles Avengers Saturday night to fall to 0-7.• We also had the Utah High School Track Coaches Invitational and a BYU men’s volleyball title-clinching victory over USC on Saturday.If there wasn’t enough going on locally the last few days, check out the national scene.• At the top of the list is the Masters, arguably the most interesting golf tournament of the year and the one most casual fans pay the most attention to. Although it got a bit shaky toward the end, that was quite a performance by winner Trevor Immelman (try saying Trevor Immelman five times quickly).• We had our first Red Sox-Yankees series of the year over the weekend with another coming up this week.• Lorena Ochoa, perhaps the best athlete you’ve never heard of, won the LPGA event in Mexico by 11 shots to qualify for the Hall of Fame at the tender age of 26 (in women’s golf you get in the Hall of Fame by your accomplishments).• The United States advanced to the semifinals of the Davis Cup with a win over France Sunday a day after they failed to clinch a day earlier when the usually unbeatable Bryan brothers lost.• Also last week, we had the NCAA men’s and women’s final basketball games, more exciting NBA playoff-implicating games, early round games in the NHL hockey playoffs and the “Frozen Four” in Denver, eventually won by Boston College along with a NASCAR race won by Jimmie Johnson.So what does all this mean? Not much, except when you’re feeling bored a couple of months from now during the dog days of summer, just remember how great you had it back in the sports-filled days of mid-April. last_img read more

Bengals’ playoff drought goes on with 18-16 loss to Steelers

first_imgBut, then, the self-destruction began.“We have to be smart in situations throughout the game and make smart decisions,” left tackle Andrew Whitworth said.Instead of protecting the ball at all costs, Hill got stripped by Ryan Shazier to give the Steelers one more chance. Hill lost his starting job temporarily this season because of fumbles. This one set up the ugly final sequence to Cincinnati’s season.“It’s hard to put into words,” said Hill, who failed to run for 100 yards in any game this season. “Words don’t do anything at this point. It’s on me. I take full blame for it. It’s very unfortunate.”Ben Roethlisberger returned from a shoulder injury to lead the winning drive, with personal fouls on Burfict and Jones moving them within range.Burfict lowered his shoulder and hit receiver Antonio Brown in the head after an incompletion, drawing a penalty. While the Steelers were on the field checking on the injured receiver, Jones got into it with Steelers assistant coach Joey Porter and drew another flag, making it 30 yards in penalties.Shortly after the game ended, Jones went on a profane rant against the official on Instagram, which was soon deleted. He also tweeted his disagreement with his penalty, saying a Steelers coach came on the field to trash talk and it was “Not even a head coach.” Burfict had no explanation for his penalty, repeatedly saying, “I don’t know.”Boswell’s fourth field goal extended Cincinnati’s playoff drought to 25 years and counting, the sixth-longest in NFL history.Lewis fell to 0-7 in the playoffs, moving ahead of Jim Mora for most such losses to start an NFL coaching career. And the Bengals (12-5) now have lost an opening-round game for five consecutive seasons — no other team has done it more than three times in a row.McCarron filled in for the injured Andy Dalton and showed his big-game mettle against long odds. No NFL quarterback with so little starting experience had won a playoff game since 1979, when Gifford Nielsen led the Oilers over the Charger. Dan Fouts threw five interceptions to make that one possible.“We were so close to giving this city what they deserved — to do it against a team like Pittsburgh — and for it not to happen … it’s bad,” McCarron said.An injury gave the Bengals their opening. With the Steelers up 15-0 in the fourth quarter, Roethlisberger hurt his right shoulder when Burfict sacked him, forcing him to the locker room. McCarron’s clutch TD pass to Green got the Bengals to the verge of their breakthrough.But Big Ben returned to lead the final nine-play, 74-yard drive, converting a third down and a fourth-down play to keep it going.It ended with Burfict jawing at Lewis on the sideline and players staring in disbelief. The Steelers ran right to their locker room when time ran out, getting pelted with cans by angry fans. The Bengals headed into an offseason of change, with nearly half the starting lineup in the final contract year.Lewis has one more year on his deal, but will come under intense scrutiny after his team self-destructed. Defensive end Carlos Dunlap tweeted: “Bengals beat Bengals … No 1 to blame but ourselves.”Heading into the game, Lewis had joked that an “exorcism” was needed for the team’s playoff history.Now what?___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and http://twitter.com/AP_NFL,CINCINNATI (AP) — Jeremy Hill got stripped of the ball. Vontaze Burfict led with his shoulder head-high. Adam “Pacman” Jones lost his cool. In a matter of seconds, Cincinnati let it all slip away.The Bengals’ latest playoff meltdown was one for the books, in many ways the worst of them all. And it will shake the franchise for a long time.Hill fumbled away a chance to close out the game, and personal fouls on Burfict and Jones moved the Steelers in range for the winning field goal on Saturday night. Chris Boswell’s 35-yard kick with 14 seconds left gave Pittsburgh an 18-16 victory — another blow-to-the-gut moment to the Bengals’ horrid playoff history. “Got back and went ahead, and then we destructed on ourselves, offense and defense together,” coach Marvin Lewis said. “That’s disappointing.” The Bengals rallied from a 15-0 deficit in the fourth quarter behind AJ McCarron, who threw a 25-yard touchdown pass to A.J. Green for a 16-15 lead with only 1:50 to go. The Bengals appeared to seal it when a diving Burfict picked off Landry Jones’ pass with 1:36 left. Burfict celebrated the play by running all the way to the other end of the field and into the tunnel — with the ball — followed closely by an entourage of teammates.
