The Sydney Mets have beaten Sun Coast in a thrilling game in the Men’s 20’s final at the 2009 X-Blades National Touch League in Port Macquarie.The game was intense up until the final siren, with both teams desperately trying to take hold of the game, with the Mets eventually winning 8-7.Tim Good opened the scoring in the 5th minute, putting the Mets in front 1-0.The Mets nearly made it 2-0 two minutes later, but their touchdown attempt was disallowed. This came back to haunt them as Sean Baldwin from Sunshine Coast scored to level the game.Sun Coast was in again just two minutes later, when Kelvin Jones scored from a great ball from Jason Schmidt, to put them into the lead for the first time in the game.Tim Good scored his second try in the 11th minute, but soon after got sent from the field as a forced interchange, and Baldwin scored his double in the corresponding set of six, giving Sun Coast the lead again. Macquire Tatola and captain Matthew Yiangou both scored for the Mets in the last five minutes of the first half, sending the Sydney team to the half time break with a 4-3 lead, despite several disallowed touchdowns against the Mets in the first half.Dave Shaw extended the Mets lead soon after the break, giving them a two touchdown advantage.Back to back tries to Sun Coast put the teams on level terms, with tries to Luke Mendham and Zach Stasser, but it wasn’t long before Shaw scored his second touchdown of the game, capitalising on some slow defence on the line. The Mets’ Luke Eisenhuth broke through the line of defence in the 7th minute, fooling Sun Coast defenders on his way, giving the Mets some breathing space.This didn’t last long, however, with Nathan Sullivan the recipient of a great cut out pass to close the gap for Sun Coast six minutes out from full time. The Mets had many opportunities to run away with the game in the second half, but numerous penalties for forward passes and over the mark calls gave Sun Coast plenty of good field position.Another penalty in good field position gave Sun Coast a great opportunity to level the scores, and that’s what they did when captain Tyson Brough led by example, scoring in the 18th minute to level the scores.The scores weren’t level for long, as Ben Antonio dived through the Sun Coast defensive line in the next set of six, to put the Mets back in front with one minute to go.Sun Coast were disallowed a try due to a forward pass in the dying seconds, handing the Mets an 8-7 win.

Sunday night, the 2015 NCAA Tournament field was revealed, and unsurprisingly, Kentucky was named the overall No. 1 seed. The Wildcats are also the odds-on favorite to win this year’s national title, per Bovada. In fact, Kentucky is almost at even money to take home the trophy – they’re currently listed at 6:5 to win it all.Arizona, the 2-seed in the West Region, actually has the second-highest odds. Wisconsin checks in third, with Duke fourth. Villanova and Virginia come in at 10:1.Here’s a list of all 68 tournament teams, along with their odds to win the championship. You could make a lot of money betting on a 16-seed to win it all, but we wouldn’t advise it. No 16-seed has ever even won an NCAA Tournament game, much less a title.Who are you betting on?
Terrelle Pryor admitted he doesn’t have the most talent or the glitziest numbers. But he proved Saturday he can make plays when it counts. The junior quarterback rallied Ohio State (10-1, 6-1) to a fourth-quarter comeback to escape Iowa City, Iowa, with a 20-17 victory and keep the Buckeyes in the hunt for their sixth straight conference title. “I might not be the best quarterback or have the best stats,” Pryor said, “but I guarantee I can bring my team back and make them believe that we were coming back.” It wasn’t pretty. Pryor scrambled for 14 yards to convert a fourth-and-10 at midfield to revive a game-winning drive that was on life support. Five plays later, running back Dan “Boom” Herron punched in a 2-yard touchdown to cap the 12-play, 76-yard march and give OSU a 20-17 lead with 1:47 remaining. “Our guys don’t panic,” coach Jim Tressel said. “They believe and keep fighting. We felt like it was going to be a four-quarter heavyweight bout.” Herron rushed for 69 yards on 20 carries. The junior has scored at least one touchdown in 10 consecutive games. Iowa’s final crack at tying or winning the game was short-lived. Defensive lineman Cameron Heyward sacked quarterback Ricky Stanzi to force the Hawkeyes into a fourth-and-22, which they couldn’t convert. “I think we knew we really needed a stop,” Heyward said. “The defensive line just took that personally and went out there and played.” Pryor raved all week about OSU’s offensive game plan for Iowa, but aside from the go-ahead series, the Buckeyes struggled to muster up any sort of offensive rhythm. The junior signal-caller tossed a pair of costly interceptions, and officials flagged the Buckeyes eight times for 73 yards, including three false start penalties. “Throughout the game, a lot of things were going on,” Pryor said. “A lot of dropped passes, a lot of bad throws, a lot of inaccurate throws. We lived for another day.” Pryor’s miscues nearly cost OSU the game. Facing third-and-10 with the score tied 10-10 in the fourth quarter, Pryor, looking for receiver Dane Sanzenbacher, threw into double coverage off his back foot. Iowa’s Shaun Prater collected the errant throw after a deflection, returning the pick eight yards to the OSU 27-yard line. The pick “was kind of B.S.,” Pryor said. “It kind of bounced off Dane and bounced up. They made a great play on that.” Two plays later, running back Marcus Coker scored the first touchdown of his career from one yard out to provide Iowa a 17-10 edge. Coker totaled 70 yards on nine carries as he started in place of Adam Robinson, whom Iowa coach Kirk Ferentz benched for the first quarter for what he called “academic indigestions.” “He didn’t do anything wrong, illegal or what have you,” Ferentz said. “But just not dotting the ‘I’s and crossing the ‘T’s.” Robinson, who gained 27 yards on nine carries, left the game on Iowa’s final drive after taking a brutal hit from OSU safety Jermale Hines. With 7:38 to play, Devin Barclay converted a career-long 48-yard field goal to cap an 11-play, 30-yard drive that cut OSU’s deficit to 17-13. One play before Pryor rescued the Buckeyes on fourth down, receiver DeVier Posey, all alone in the end zone, let a downfield heave fall through his fingers. He strutted back to the huddle, hands on his helmet, shaking his head. “Was I pissed? Yeah, I was mad,” Pryor said. “But we had a fourth-and-10 to get to or we were going to lose another game. I hate losing with a passion.” Pryor atoned for Posey’s drop and his own mistakes on the next play, as Tressel opted against punting on fourth down from midfield with more than four minutes left. Instead, the notoriously conservative coach put his trust in an offense that tallied just three points in the first half. “When it was fourth-and-10 and (Pryor) went scrambling, I almost threw up on myself,” linebacker Brian Rolle said. “I held my breath the whole play.” On the Buckeyes’ final possession before halftime, Pryor tried to squeeze a pass into triple coverage for receiver Taurian Washington. After a deflection, Iowa safety Micah Hyde snagged the ball with one hand while falling to the ground to preserve the Hawkeye lead. Following the play, Pryor pleaded his case with Tressel and quarterbacks coach Nick Siciliano, insisting that the turnover wasn’t his fault. “He was probably upset about the fact he threw an interception,” Tressel said. “But in the heat of a game when you’re screaming and yelling at each other, there’s no place for the meek and mild. You need to be screamed at and you need to scream. “I don’t know if I was screaming at him or if he was screaming at me or if we were screaming at each other, but we still love each other.” Pryor completed 18 of his 33 pass attempts for 195 yards. He found backup tight end Reid Fragel for a 5-yard touchdown to cap a 12-play, 77-yard drive to start the second half and turn a 7-3 deficit into a 10-7 advantage. The score was the first of Fragel’s career. Iowa responded with a 10-play, 65-yard march of its own, which culminated in a 31-yard field goal to tie the game. Last season, the teams also entered the fourth quarter knotted at 10-10. Herron and running back Brandon Saine scored touchdowns early in the quarter before Iowa erased a 14-point deficit to send the contest into overtime. After Iowa failed to score, Barclay punched the Buckeyes’ ticket to Pasadena, Calif., with a 39-yard field goal. OSU hosts rival Michigan at the Horseshoe at noon Saturday. A victory would clinch the Buckeyes at least a share of the Big Ten title. Michigan State and Wisconsin remain tied with OSU atop the Big Ten standings with one conference loss. The Badgers beat Michigan, and the Spartans rallied to defeat Purdue.
Fans of Ohio State sports are lucky, spoiled even, you could say. Not only is Columbus home to one of the country’s best football programs with Urban Meyer at the helm, but the basketball team, under the watch of Thad Matta, has developed into a national power. Over the last five years, OSU leads all schools in the two-sport winning percentage of football and men’s basketball. The past academic year witnessed a flawed but driven football team go undefeated and a basketball squad, having to replace a two-time all-American and the program’s third all-time leading scorer, come within a game of matching its NCAA Tournament run from a season ago. As the photo editor of The Lantern, I was privileged to witness each of OSU’s 12 football games in person. I also covered the majority of the basketball team’s contests, including all of the Big Ten Tournament in Chicago and the NCAA Tournament games in Dayton and Los Angeles. Here’s the best that was on the gridiron and the hardwood in 2012-13 at OSU: Best game: OSU 73, Arizona 70, NCAA Tournament Sweet 16 Playing in one of America’s basketball cathedrals, OSU advanced to its second Elite Eight in as many seasons at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. The No. 6-seeded Wildcats, coached by Sean Miller, Matta’s former assistant at Xavier, raced out to a 26-17 lead. Junior forward Deshaun Thomas hit a couple 3-pointers to help the Buckeyes claw back to within four points at halftime. Out of the break, No. 2 seed OSU used a 10-2 run to take hold of the contest. The Buckeyes lead got as high as eight points with 7:42 to play, but an and-one layup from senior guard Mark Lyons tied the game at 70-70 with 21 seconds remaining. With the ball in his hands less than a week after hitting the game-winner in a third round contest against Iowa State, junior guard Aaron Craft passed to LaQuinton Ross with two seconds left. The sophomore forward and occupant of Kobe Bryant’s locker during the stay in L.A. hit a 3-pointer from the left arc to catapult the Buckeyes past the Wildcats. Best player: Then-sophomore quarterback Braxton Miller Thomas made a strong case for himself being the name in this category, leading the Big Ten in scoring and being OSU’s only offensive option for the most of the season. But as much as the junior forward was relied on this winter, Miller was to an even greater extent with the football team. The then-sophomore set a school record for total yards in a season and was a serious Heisman contender until the trophy’s finalists were announced in early December. In 2012, Miller totaled 3,310 yards and 28 touchdowns. With Thomas declaring himself eligible for the NBA Draft, Miller is likely to see his name in this category again next year. Best play: Craft’s game-winning 3-pointer vs. Iowa State Two plays made by players on the football team came to mind when trying to decide who would win this category. There was the scrambling run for a touchdown by Miller at Penn State that involved multiple juke moves before a leap into the end zone. And the superman-esque dive by then-sophomore linebacker Ryan Shazier into Wisconsin then-senior running back Montee Ball forced a fumble at the goal line and stopped history (Ball was a touchdown away from setting the NCAA career record). But neither of those, nor any play made by the football or basketball team this year, were better than the 3-pointer Craft hit in Dayton against Iowa State to send OSU into the Sweet 16. Dribbling the ball at the top of the key, the junior guard waved off calls for the ball by Thomas and junior guard Lenzelle Smith Jr. With Cyclone freshman forward Georges Niang isolated on him, Craft waited until there was one second left before firing a 3-pointer that found nothing but the bottom of the net. “I hope someday they put a statue in front of our building of him,” Matta said on CBS after the game. “Coaches were telling me he’s exhausted. He’s too tough to be tired. What a big-time shot.” Best moment: Then-redshirt junior quarterback Kenny Guiton leads comeback against Purdue OSU’s dream of an undefeated season nearly came to a screeching halt at the end of the third quarter of the Buckeyes’ Oct. 20 game against Purdue in Columbus. Miller had just suffered an injury, left the field on a cart and exited the stadium in an ambulance. OSU was trailing the Boilermakers, 20-14, and with its best player out, the team’s perfect 7-0 record was almost assuredly going to be handed a blemish. In stepped Guiton, who did little to help the Buckeyes’ cause until the game was just about over. With 2:40 left and the score 22-14, the then-redshirt junior threw an interception. Meyer grabbed Guiton, who was noticeably distraught. “I said, ‘You’re going to win us a game,’” Meyer said. “He looked right at me. I think he was down but I think that moment kind of picked him up.” OSU got the ball back, and Guiton led a 61-yard drive with 47 seconds left that ended with a touchdown pass to then-redshirt junior wide receiver Chris Fields. The Buckeyes tied the game with a two-point conversion on a lobbed throw to then-freshman tight end Jeff Heuerman and won the contest in overtime. Best underdog story: Zach Boren’s move to linebacker OSU’s defense had shredded in back-to-back games against Nebraska and Indiana in mid-October. The Buckeyes allowed a combined 87 points in those two contests, and at the heart of Meyer’s concerns about his defense was the linebacker position. Boren, then-senior and 30-game starter at fullback, had played linebacker in high school and was recruited to OSU to play that position. Sensing that his team needed someone to step up and fill a void, Boren asked Meyer if he could play linebacker during an October practice. Meyer obliged to the request, and Boren responded by helping revamp a defense that allowed just 57 points in November. The Pickerington native recorded 50 tackles on the season and averaged 8.2 tackles per game in his six games at linebacker, including a career-high 12 in the overtime win at Wisconsin. “Talk about Zach Boren. You want someone to write a book on, wow, that would be good if you go write a book on Zach Boren,” Meyer said. Best team: Football The basketball team can make its arguments: Big Ten Tournament champions, an Elite Eight Appearance and an 11-game winning streak. The football team only needs to make one, though. Undefeated. Meyer and his squad literally accomplished everything they could in 2012, winning all 12 of their games and recording the school’s first perfect season since 2002.

BALURGHAT: Trinamool MP and party’s youth president Abhishek Banerjee is expected to visit Balurghat on August 7 in a party programme to boost up party workers in a bid to see good results for the upcoming Lok Sabha poll, South Dinajpur district party president Biplab Mitra said on Wednesday.Apart from Banerjee, senior party leaders Partha Chatterjee, Firhad Hakim and Subrata Bakshi are scheduled to attend Balurghat with him. According to Mitra, thousands of party workers and supporters covering all eight blocks will attend the programme, where Banerjee will deliver the message of party supremo Mamata Banerjee to exhibit her planning on how to fight with the communal forces in the forthcoming ballot battle in 2019. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeNotably, in the last Parliamentary poll, popular theatre personality Arpita Ghosh had bagged the Balurghat seat and dedicated it to Banerjee, while the people had voted for Mamata Banerjee to gear up the plethora of development projects undertaken during her two-term state ruling. Consequently and due to this, plenty of workers from different political parties have shifted to Trinamool in recent times.According to the political observers, Mamata has now set her target to strengthen the support base, covering each block of the district and the party has started boosting itself from the booth level. Mitra has asked the leaders and workers to initiate measures regarding the visit of Abhishek Banerjee. He has already conducted a party meeting at Gangarampur Marwari Bhavan on Tuesday, to chalk out a blueprint to ensure his visit becomes a memorable one.”Communal BJP is planning to stop development in Bengal. Our leader Mamata Banerjee is well aware of it. She has already delivered a stern message to us through her rejuvenating speech on Martyrs’ Day on July 21. Our party’s youth president Abhishek Banerjee is scheduled to arrive here on August 7, along with some senior state level leaders,” Mitra said.
20Mar Rep. Allor to DOD: Clean up your mess Categories: Allor News State Rep. Sue Allor today sharply criticized the U.S. Department of Defense (DOD) after recent reports that the DOD has been lobbying the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency to adopt a more lenient standard for cleaning up PFAS in groundwater. For decades, the DOD used fire-fighting foam laden with PFAS for training exercises on Air Force bases, including the former Wurtsmith base.“We all have to take responsibility for our actions, whether we like it or not. It is underhanded and unfair to the citizens of this state for federal bureaucrats to try and dodge responsibility at the eleventh hour, and leave Michigan taxpayers with the bill,” Allor, of Wolverine, said. “This mess will take a long time to clean up, and the federal government must step up and do its part, not play political games with the health and safety of Michigan families.”The DOD’s push to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency for a lower groundwater clean-up standard comes as the Department of Defense faces billions of dollars in cleanup costs tied to its use of PFAS-laden AFFF firefighting foam. If successful, media reports stated, the Pentagon’s move could get the Air Force off the hook for cleaning up sites.“The science around PFAS cleanup is rapidly advancing, but one thing remains the same—our standards are getting stronger, not weaker,” Allor said. “The Pentagon’s suggestion that the EPA adopt a cleanup standard of 380 parts per trillion— more than five times weaker than Michigan’s current standard – is ludicrous. We need to make sure we are pursuing science-backed standards that best protect Michigan families.”
Vice’s linear TV channel, Viceland, will launch via Liberty Global-owned operator Ziggo in the Netherlands next year.Vice said that the youth lifestyle and culture channel will go live in the first quarter of 2017 – initially via Ziggo, but with “further distribution” due to follow later in the year.Viceland NL will air a mixture of international programming and original, local content produced in the Netherlands and Belgium. All content on the 24-hour channel will be programmed, produced and developed in-house.‘’The arrival of Viceland ensures that we will be present with our content on all screens – digital, mobile en linear – and as such, is a logical step for us in the evolution of Vice,” said CEO of Vice Media Benelux, Thijs Boon.“We have the ambition to tell the most remarkable stories in fresh and innovative ways to millennials, and this step ensures that we raise the bar for ourselves even higher.’’Filmmaker and Viceland co-president, Spike Jonze will oversee the development of the new channel – from show creation, to production, to brand identity.The Netherlands launch will follow the rollout of Viceland in France, Asia, Africa, Australia and New Zealand later this year.Viceland first launched in the US earlier this year and is now also available in Canada, the UK and Ireland.
The European Council (EC) has adopted new rules that allow consumers who pay for online TV subscriptions in their home territory access them elsewhere in the EU.The rules, which cover all forms of content services, were passed in May, meaning Netflix, Amazon and HBO Go customers will now be able to access those platforms while in other European territories.The EU has hailed the move’s importance for Europe’s Digital Single Market policy, but content distributors remain concerned it rips up their territorial business model.Essentially, distributors are concerned programmes or films they could have sold into individual territories will find no longer be of interest to buyers, as they are already in effect available.The EU says measures to protect their business models will be adopted.The rules only apply to paid-for services, though free-to-air services such as the BBC iPlayer provided by public service broadcasters can take up the system.“Europeans travelling within the EU will no longer be cut off from online services such as films, sporting broadcasts, music, e-books or games they have paid for back home,” said the Maltese presidency of the EU in a statement.“Together with the ending of roaming charges, this is important progress in creating a digital single market which benefits everyone.”To avoid “abuses”, service providers are being asked to verify subscribers’ member state of residence.The rules will start to apply from the first quarter of 2018.
