Delight for Ronaldo after match-winning display against PSG

first_imgRonaldo’s first was a penalty that took him to 100 Champions League goals as a Real player, cancelling out Adrien Rabiot’s opener for PSG.He then struck the second in the 83rd minute before a Marcelo strike gave the reigning European champions a two-goal advantage ahead of the return leg of their last-16 tie on March 6.Ronaldo admitted that the penalty that allowed his side to draw level just on the stroke of half-time was crucial.“We knew Paris were a very dangerous side, especially up front with the three strikers they have, but we knew we had to press them,” he added.“I think we sat back a bit more in the second half, but we played better, had more chances and scored two more goals.“Today things worked out for me — I scored twice and helped the team to win, but we know the tie is not finished yet.

Bruins hope players meeting works

first_imgBy Brian Dohn STAFF WRITER Along with the usual Sunday team meeting and several meetings involving coaches and UCLA individual players, the Bruins held a players-only meeting to discuss Saturday’s surreal 38-point loss at Utah. The topics discussed included accountability and leadership as the Bruins look to regroup before Saturday’s Pacific-10 home game against Washington. “We talked about leadership, and how everybody has to buy into the program,” Bruins receiver Brandon Breazell said. “There was a moment where everyone was looking at their wrist bands (which has a team goal imprinted in them), to know what you’re working for. We have to put in extra work this week and play like this could be your last moment. “And you have to believe it. You have to believe in the guy next to you.” With 20 returning starters and 23 scholarship seniors, UCLA was supposed to be beyond such colossal collapses, which seem to happen once a season. But many of the Bruins said they took Utah, which was 0-2, lightly. “It’s necessary (to have a players-only meeting) after a loss like that because your team can go in different ways,” senior strong safety Chris Horton said. “Everyone can be sitting around, moping around about what happened Saturday, but we’re not going to let that happen. We have a lot to play for.” UCLA injury update An MRI showed Bruins starting left guard Shannon Tevaga suffered a mild tear of the medial collateral ligament in his right knee, and he is expected to miss the next two games. He could return Oct. 6 against Notre Dame. With Tevaga out, P.J. Irvin is in line to make his first career start. Coach Karl Dorrell said strong side linebacker Aaron Whittington will be held out because he sustained concussions in successive games. Kyle Bosworth will start in his place. Dorrell said that if receiver Marcus Everett (ankle) was limited or could not play, Osaar Rasshan would get more time. Markey’s mystery start After rushing for 1,109 yards and averaging 4.9 yards per carry last season, Bruins tailback Chris Markey has gained 153 yards in three games and is averaging 3.3 yards per carry. The lack of production has led to questions as to whether the fractured foot Markey suffered in the spring is healed. “He’s not banged up,” Dorrell said. “I know that he’s working hard and trying hard. I think at times he probably presses a little bit because of him wanting to make plays for the offense.” Price is right at last UCLA freshman defensive tackle Brian Price had his transcripts validated by the NCAA Clearinghouse and was deemed eligible by the NCAA. He may play a small role Saturday. Around the nation Arizona: Four little-used reserves were arrested on suspicion of underage drinking on Friday, police said. Arkansas: Defensive tackle Ernest Mitchell has been suspended for Saturday night’s game against No. 21 Kentucky due to unsportsmanlike behavior in Saturday’s loss at Alabama. Northern Illinois: Demetrius Jones, the Notre Dame quarterback who lost the starting position after a poor performance in the season opener, expects to play next season at Northern Illinois following his decision to transfer. Kentucky: The SEC fined Kentucky $25,000 for violating league policy about keeping fans off the playing field following the Wildcats’ 40-34 victory over Louisville on Saturday. Texas: Three Longhorns suspended for the first three games have been reinstated and should be available to play Saturday against Rice, Coach Mack Brown said. Sophomore linebacker Sergio Kindle and junior defensive end Henry Melton were suspended after summer drunken driving arrests. Wide receiver Billy Pittman was suspended after the school determined he received improper benefits for the use of a friend’s car.

His photo, titled “Tragedy by the Sea,” appeared on the newspaper’s front page the next day. Pulitzer judges called it “poignant and profoundly moving.” Despite the honor, Gaunt’s daughter said the image “was hard for him to bear.” He had a 3-year-old child of his own at the time, and although he didn’t know the couple he knew others who did. According to the Times, Gaunt was born June 4, 1924, in Syracuse, N.Y., and his family moved to Southern California when Gaunt was an infant. A Redondo Union High graduate, Gaunt grew up in Hermosa Beach. He worked on the school newspaper and contributed photographs to the Daily Breeze. By The Associated Press DESERT HOT SPRINGS – John L. Gaunt, a retired Los Angeles Times photographer who won a Pulitzer Prize for his heartbreaking picture of a young couple embracing by the sea after discovering their 19-month-old son had drowned, has died of congestive heart failure. He was 83. Gaunt died Friday at a hospice, his daughter Jane Gaunt said. According to the Times, Gaunt was at his Hermosa Beach home on April 3, 1954, when he heard a neighbor shout, “Something’s happening on the beach.” Gaunt, known as “Jack” to friends and colleagues, worked at the Times for 38 years until retiring in 1988. Had he still been working, he told his daughter earlier in the week, he would have hoped to be photographing Southern California’s wildfires. Gaunt is also survived by another daughter, Abigail Gaunt of Cleveland.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations!

ASSAULT VICTIM: ‘I CHALLENGED JUDGE OVER COMMUNITY SERVICE SENTENCE’

first_imgBrave: Dani spoke out after sentenceA WOMAN whose ex-boyfriend beat her for 90 minutes and was given a Community Service Order as punishment has revealed how she challenged the judge after the case.Danielle Kerrigan (pictured right) told Donegal Daily how she waited until after the court hearing to challenge Circuit Court judge John O’Hagan. Eamonn Harkin, 24, from St Eunan’s Terrace in Raphoe beat Danielle Kerrigan black and blue for 90 minutes and only stopped to get a drink of water.Harkin, 24, escaped jail last November after being convicted of the assault in February, 2010 for which he served 240 hours community service. He spent two weeks in jail awaiting sentence.Harkin has been back in court again facing charges that he assaulted William O’Donnell, Mr Kerrigan’s new boyfriend.Letterkenny District Court heard Harkin was ‘traumatised’ because of Donegal Daily’s reporting of the case last November.Judge Paul Kelly fined Harkin €250 for assaulting Mr O’Donnell and €200 for failing to give his name and address to Gardai. He was also bound to the peace for two years.Today Danielle revealed she had spoken to Judge O’Hagan after the November case.“I did ask Judge O’Hagan after my court case in November about the sentence. He told me that he felt 240 hours community service was enough for the crime as well as Mr Harkin doing two weeks in jail,” said Danielle.“We went to the District Court this time and we knew ourselves he wasn’t going to go to jail but we are glad that we got him convicted! He got more of a punishment for punching my boyfriend than for the attack on me.”The Raphoe woman paid tribute to the community in the town for their support.Harkin: Convicted of assault again“Their support has been one of the things that has gotten us through these past three years,” she said.“However I had to say that my experience of the courts has not been good in my opinion. Women find it hard to speak out – but you have to stand up to bullies,” she added.ASSAULT VICTIM: ‘I CHALLENGED JUDGE OVER COMMUNITY SERVICE SENTENCE’ was last modified: June 22nd, 2017 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:ASSAULT VICTIM: ‘I CHALLENGED JUDGE OVER COMMUNITY SERVICE SENTENCE’last_img read more

Everything’s in the Cards

first_img St. Louis quickly moved past overmatched San Diego, advancing to the NL championship series for the second straight season and fourth time in six years after finishing a NLDS sweep late Saturday night. They’ll meet Houston, which eliminated Atlanta on Sunday, in the NLCS beginning Wednesday in St. Louis. “We’ve got a great club,” Carpenter said. “We’ve got to continue to play the way we’ve been playing in this series to continue to move on. We’ve got some quality guys here. We played quality games. We went out and swung the bats early.” SAN DIEGO – Chris Carpenter stood soaked with champagne in the St. Louis clubhouse as he reeled off everything the Cardinals are doing right this postseason. They jumped to big leads in all three first-round games against San Diego. Carpenter and the other starters were superb and the bullpen sealed it each time. The defense turned enough double plays that the Padres never found any kind of offensive groove. Sanders’ bases-loaded, two-run double came four batters later, and just like that the Cardinals had taken a 5-0 lead. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
