first_img “Yes, I did see it [after the Grimsby game],” said Gilmour. “One of my friends text me, I was buzzing.

Raheem Sterling already focused on Manchester City’s next game

first_imgRaheem Sterling is looking onwards and upwards after igniting his Manchester City career with a hat-trick in Saturday’s 5-1 demolition of Bournemouth. Wilfried Bony also struck twice as the Barclays Premier League leaders made light of the absences of key attacking duo Sergio Aguero and David Silva at the Etihad Stadium. But with star striker Aguero likely to be out for at least a month and playmaker Silva for a fortnight, Sterling is aware there are tougher challenges ahead. They start with Sevilla in the Champions League on Wednesday before City then travel to Old Trafford for next Sunday’s derby against Manchester United. Sterling said: “It is always good to be on the scoresheet and even better to get a hat-trick. That was my best game so far for City – I had chances and I finished them so I’m happy. “But the game has gone now and I need to focus on the next game and hopefully try to get on the scoresheet then. We have to put this game to one side now and look towards Sevilla and Man United next weekend.” Sterling played just behind lone striker Bony with the outstanding Kevin de Bruyne to his left and Jesus Navas on the right. Bournemouth did have a good early penalty appeal rejected but City’s attack soon started to fire as Sterling and Bony both struck in the opening 11 minutes. Glenn Murray replied but Sterling showed great composure to net another after being released by a brilliant De Bruyne pass and completed his treble before the interval, although Navas should have taken the initial chance. Bony claimed his second with a neat turn in the closing minutes and Kelechi Iheanacho had another effort ruled out for offside. The performances of the forwards, and particularly of De Bruyne and the understanding between Bony and Sterling, were among the highlights and bode well for City at a time when squad depth is being tested. Sterling said: “The movement up front and the passing from midfield has been really good in the last few games and we’ve been playing some good, free-flowing stuff. “I thought Wilf was unbelievable. He brought people into the game and scored goals when he needed to. That was a credit to him.” For Bony there was also great satisfaction. His City career is yet to get going with a combination of international commitments, injuries and illness – now revealed to be malaria – having hampered him since his £25million January move from Swansea. Bony said: “This is a good chance for me and it started to work, so let’s hope it carries on like this.” Bournemouth’s preparations had been disrupted when goalkeeper Artur Boruc aggravated a thigh injury in the warm-up and had to be replaced by Adam Federici. It was the latest in a series of injury problems to hit the promoted side, having already lost Tommy Elphick, Callum Wilson, Max Gradel and Tyrone Mings to long-term problems. Manager Eddie Howe said: “With our full squad this would be an incredibly tough task and it is even more so with the players we have out. “But we are going to have to cope. I still believe the squad we have got is able to be competitive, despite the fact we have so many players out long term. We are not looking at that as an excuse.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Sharma equals fastest T20 ton

first_img(Reuters) – INDIA’S Rohit Sharma on Friday equalled the fastest century in Twenty20 International cricket from only 35 balls to set up the hosts’ massive 88-run victory against Sri Lanka and a series win with a match to spare in Indore.Opening batsman Rohit, leading India in the absence of the newly-wed regular captain Virat Kohli, matched the record South Africa’s David Miller set against Bangladesh in OctoberRohit, the only batsman to hit three double hundreds in the 50-over format, added 165 with fellow opener Lokesh Rahul to power India to 260-5 in their 20 overs for the joint-highest total by a team in what is the shortest format of the game.In reply, Sri Lanka, who lost the opening match by 93 runs at Cuttack on Wednesday, were bundled out for 172 in the 18th over to go down 2-0 in the three-match series after also losing in tests and one-day internationals.India’s wrist spinners once again did the damage for the hosts with leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal taking 4-52 while left-armer Kuldeep Yadav picked up 3-52.Angelo Mathews could not bat due to an injury as Sri Lanka’s chase screeched to a halt after they lost six wickets in two overs from the spinners.Kusal Perera top-scored with 77 off 37 balls for the touring side, who had also gone down 9-0 across formats to India at home earlier in the year.The 30-year-old Rohit smashed 10 sixes and 12 fours before he was eventually dismissed for 118 in 43 balls on a featherbed of a wicket at the Holkar Cricket Stadium, where Sri Lanka captain Thisara Perera won the toss and opted to field.Four of Rohit’s sixes came in consecutive deliveries off Thisara which took him to 97 and he completed his second hundred in the format with a four on the next ball he faced from seamer Angelo Mathews.Rahul took charge after Rohit’s dismissal and added 78 for the second wicket with former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni before falling for 89 off 49 balls.India were well on course to eclipse the highest T20 International total of 263-3, which was set by Australia against Sri Lanka in 2016, but lost their way by losing four wickets in the last two overs of their innings.Mumbai’s Wankhede Stadium will host the final match of the tour on Sunday.last_img read more

Trojans look to rebound against Long Beach State

first_imgThe men’s volleyball team hit its first roadblock last week with a tough loss at the hands of the Pepperdine Waves. Still, there’s plenty of optimism around the program going forward this season. The Trojans will get a chance to rebound against Long Beach State today in what should be another highly contested Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference matchup.Stepping up · Freshman Lucas Yoder has 66 kills to lead the Trojans. Yoder has started all four games for the team this year. – Ralf Cheung | Daily TrojanThe Trojans (3-1, 2-1 MPSF) came into the Galen Center last Thursday night, Jan. 16, looking to stay unbeaten in the early season after wins over Loyola-Chicago, UC San Diego and UC Irvine. The Trojans, however fell to the Waves (3-0, 3-0) in four sets by a score of 26-28, 25-22, 25-22, 26-24.“I was disappointed by the result,” starting junior setter Micah Christenson said. “But I’m still feeling good about the season moving forward.”“I’m happy that it’s still early in the season,” Christenson said after the game. “We have a lot of things to get better at but we also have a lot of positives to take from this match. Pepperdine’s a very good team, very well-coached and hats off to them. They dug the ball and blocked the ball very well tonight.”USC head coach Bill Ferguson added to Christenson’s points.“The team did not look as good as it usually does defensively,” Ferguson said. “We definitely weren’t at our best.”Ferguson also praised his opponent’s play. “Pepperdine was playing great,” the eighth-year coach said. “There were just too many defensive plays that we normally make that we didn’t make tonight. Digs, balls that are hit near us that we get all the time and we just weren’t there.”He added that the team didn’t react very well after losing big points.“We left a lot of points out on the court,” Ferguson said. “I thought we got out of sorts a little bit and we had some plays we normally make that just wasn’t happening for us and I think we were letting that get to us. I think we got too frustrated. If we would lose a big point we would get frustrated rather than move on to the next play and it’s a good learning experience for us. We have that experience and we can learn from it, and that’s the cool thing.”Christenson agreed that given the experience Pepperdine has over the Trojans, a relatively young team with several freshmen cracking the starting roster, it might some time before USC reaches its full potential.“They’ve had that core for three years, so they don’t have any time lost getting to know each other,” he said. “We are a new team and it’s very positive that we’re scaring good teams and beating good teams with the short amount of time that we’ve had to learn each other.”Christenson had 50 assists on the night as well as two service aces. Senior libero Henry Cassiday led the team with 21 digs. Freshman outside hitter Lucas Yoder led the team with 16 kills along with nine errors, junior middle blocker Robert Feathers had 10 kills and three errors and freshman middle blocker Andy Benesh had nine kills with one error.Even though redshirt senior Maddison McKibbin has gotten most of the starts at opposite this year, junior Cristian Rivera got the starting nod there and McKibbin spelled him later in the match. Yoder started along with sophomore Alex Slaught on the outside, though redshirt freshman Christopher Orenic substituted in for Slaught late in the match. McKibbin finished with three kills and an error, Rivera had seven kills and seven errors, Slaught had six kills and five errors, while Orenic had three kills with two errors.“We have a ton of depth,” Ferguson said, who at times will stick with his starting lineup for the entire game but used much more of the bench against Pepperdine. “We’re going to use that depth to our advantage.”In addition to the tough early competition, Ferguson said the team’s travel schedule has been relatively hectic early on in the season but that the team should get into more of a normal routine as the year goes on. The Trojans began their season with a road trip two weeks ago to Chicago to play Loyola-Chicago, then hosted UC Irvine last Tuesday before the Pepperdine game last Thursday. After today’s game against Long Beach State, the team travels to Cal State Northridge on Friday.“We’re back to a bit of a normal schedule for us where we’re either Wednesday/Friday or Thursday/Saturday and I think that’ll help us,” he said. “We get a couple of days off, we’ve had a funky schedule with a Tuesday game and coming back from Chicago on a Monday the previous week so now we’re back to normal.”Ferguson said that today’s game should be another competitive conference match, particularly in the middle of the court where Long Beach State likes to attack from. The Trojans sit at fourth in the nation, while Long Beach State (3-2, 2-2) is ranked fifth in the American Volleyball Coaches Association poll released Monday. Pepperdine jumped to the top spot in the poll after its win against USC.“They’re very outside hitter-oriented,” Ferguson said. “Their middles hit right next to the setter and they always have a hitter coming over the middle. It’s a back row outside hitter coming down the middle. Taylor Crabb was the National Player of the Year last year and he’s one of those outside hitters. Dalton Ammerman is their other outside and they really make things go.”The Trojans will face Long Beach State tonight at 7 p.m.last_img read more
