Koeman praise for stand-in Davis

first_img England international Forster was carried off on a stretcher in the early moments of Saturday’s 2-0 win over Burnley – with Koeman confirming the 27-year-old was taken to hospital for a scan on his knee. Shane Long’s third Premier League goal for Saints and a second-half own goal from Burnley skipper Jason Shackell was enough to keep Koeman’s side in the hunt for a Champions League spot but it was Davis who will be hailed as the hero of the hour. The 38-year-old may be Southampton’s club captain but he had not tasted first-team football in over a year when he was called upon to replace the stricken Forster. That did not stop the former Ipswich and Sunderland man producing a number of top quality saves, most noticeably from Sam Vokes and Danny Ings. “Kelvin is a very experienced goalkeeper,” said Koeman, who celebrated his 52nd birthday with another three points. “He was looking very comfortable and confident and made two great saves. The Ings shot was a great save at a very important moment. “It is difficult because it was a long time ago that he played. The positive thing is that he is an experienced goalkeeper. He wasn’t nervous to come in, he looked comfortable and that is important for the defenders and the team organisation. “He was joking after and said maybe they will take him to the national team.” Forster is one of only two goalkeepers named in Roy Hodgson’s squad for the upcoming games against Lithuania and Italy but the England manager is likely to have to bring in reinforcements. The former Celtic man was left in agony after clearing the ball under pressure from Vokes, and Koeman said the early signs suggest it could be a bad injury. Press Association “I don’t think so,” the Dutchman replied when asked if Forster had a chance of being fit for international duty. “He is now in the hospital and he is having a scan, we have to wait but it is not looking very positive about his knee. We have to wait for the scan but the doctor wasn’t very positive. I was following the ball and I didn’t see what happened.” Burnley, on the back of their 1-0 victory over champions Manchester City last weekend, created the best openings of the first half but their spirited fight waned after Shackell turned a Ryan Bertrand cross past Tom Heaton. Clarets boss Sean Dyche felt his side were denied a clear penalty by referee Roger East as Jose Fonte challenged George Boyd moments after Davis’ first spectacular save. “It is impossible how we didn’t get a penalty, I have seen it back,” he said. “It was certainly very surprising we didn’t get a penalty. I don’t mention it too often but that is the third one in a matter of weeks that we haven’t had.” But it was the lack of a clinical edge in front of goal that Dyche believes cost his side a chance at getting out of the relegation zone and adding to the eight points they have collected away from Turf Moor so far this season. “I thought we had four key chances, certainly three, and we didn’t take them,” he added. “They were good saves from the keeper but I played with Kelvin a long time ago and they are saves a keeper of his calibre was expected to make. “I was disappointed in the finishing because at half-time you’re scratching your head at how we are 1-0 down.” The defeat leaves Burnley two points behind Aston Villa and in 18th place with games against two other Champions League-chasing clubs in Tottenham and Arsenal to come after the international break. Ronald Koeman was full of praise for stand-in goalkeeper Kelvin Davis after the Southampton stalwart stepped in following an early injury to Fraser Forster. last_img read more

Cazenovia’s Smith makes state boys swim meet in two races

first_imgBut throughout the long race, Smith proved a bit quicker than Merkling, and then he pulled away in the last 100 yards, finishing in 4:48.77 to Merkling’s 4:51.74, an improvement of nearly 17 seconds from earlier this season.Since the state qualifying standard was 4:52.52, Smith easily gained a place on the Section III team that will go to Long Island’s Nassau Aquatic Center for the March 6-7 state meet – and he’ll do so in two events.Earlier in the sectional meet, Smith attacked the 200 individual medley. Again, Merkling was the main opposition and this time the Liverpool junior won in 1:57.92. However, Smith, needing to record 2:00.63 to reach the state meet, finished in 1:59.63 to advance. That was an improvement of more than eight seconds over his previous best of 2:08.23.Moving to Saturday’s sectional state qualifier, Smith would go 4:49.92 in the 500 freestyle, finishing a close second to Syracuse’s Belal Hamad, who posted 4:49.71 to get to the top spot.In the 200 IM, Smith improved 1:58.92, still second to Merkling, who won in 1:56.95. And in the 400 freestyle relay, Smith, joining Lucas Weires, Eric Bang and Ben Rabin, went 3:19.94, again second to Liverpool, who went 3:17.79.Three other Cazenovia students swam at the sectional Class A meet, too, with sophomore Cooper Hughes making his way to 18th place in the 50 freestyle in a season-best 24.48 seconds.Freshman Max Vidakovic took part in the 100 backstroke, finishing 24th in 1:09.41, and eighth-grader Eddie Comeau swam in the 100 breaststroke, getting 22nd place in 1:15.58.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story All through this winter, four Cazenovia High School students have taken part in boys swimming with Fayetteville-Manlius, competing in home meets a few blocks from their home campus at Cazenovia College.That included sophomore Quinn Smith, who would go to Thursday’s Section III Class A championships at Nottingham High School and secure spots in next month’s state meet in two different events, winning the 500-yard freestyle.Going into the meet, Smith has posted a time of five minutes, 5.70 seconds that made him the third seed, well behind Liverpool’s Griffin Merkling, the top seed at 4:56.86.center_img Tags: Cazenoviaswimminglast_img read more

Syracuse field hockey falls 4-2 to Wake Forest

first_imgLooking to extend its four-game winning streak, No. 10 Syracuse (10-4, 1-4 Atlantic Coast) took to the road and lost to No. 13 Wake Forest (10-5, 3-2), 4-2, on Saturday afternoon. The Orange pitted a hole for itself early, going down 2-0 after 24 minutes of play on  goals by Demon Deacons’ junior forwards Krysta Wangerin and Madi Julius.SU emerged for its first goal of the day shortly after halftime when junior forward Emma Russell connected for her 10th of the season to cut the lead to one. Wake Forest would counter just a minute later as sophomore midfielder Sarah Thornhill deflected a shot past Syracuse goalkeeper Jess Jecko to give the Demon Deacons a 3-1 advantage with 19 minutes remaining.Standout freshman midfielder Lieke Visser countered with a deflected goal of her own to close the margin to 3-2 at the 62-minute mark, but it was a little too late. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHead coach Ange Bradley pulled Jecko from the goal in favor of an extra offensive player with four minutes remaining in the game. It proved to be a costly decision when Thornhill notched her second goal of the game to seal a 4-2 win.The four goals for the Demon Deacons is the most Syracuse has allowed to an opponent this season. Additionally, the loss was the third for SU on the road and it places it further back in the ACC standings — as it remains the only one-win team in the conference. Syracuse returns home next weekend to play its final two home games of the season against Duke (10-4, 2-3) and Bucknell (9-4, 4-0 Patriot League).compiled by Connor Grossman, staff writer, cgrossma@syr.edu Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 18, 2014 at 11:34 pmlast_img read more

Top-ranked tussle in store for Trojans

first_imgIn collegiate sports, it is rare to find a regular-season matchup showcasing the two top teams in the country. These types of marquee matches are normally saved for primetime television or late-round tournament games.Tough test· Junior setter Riley McKibbin will help lead USC against Cal State Northridge, recently given the nation’s top ranking. – Katelynn Whitaker | Daily Trojan Though as the No. 2 USC men’s volleyball team (6-2, 4-1) travels tonight to the Metadome to face the newly-crowned No. 1 team in the land, the Cal State Northridge Matadors (8-1, 5-1), there will be no championships at stake, no ESPN camera crews and no late-night exposure. And while the final result may not leave the victor with a trophy or ticker-tape parade, no match this season has held as much importance as tonight’s showdown between these two Mountain Pacific Sports Federation conference foes.The Trojans, who previously were ranked No. 1 in the country, enter tonight’s match in Stockton, Calif. in what simply can be described as unfamiliar territory. Last Friday, they led No. 11 Pepperdine 2-1, with an 18-14 lead in the fourth set, when the wheels on what looked to be an emphatic road win came off. The Waves rattled off a 12-6 run to win the set, and then carried that momentum in to the final set, en route to a 15-10 victory.The match not only ended USC’s perfect conference record, but it stripped the team of its standing as the nation’s elite. While the team has had several statement victories over top teams including UC Irvine, Ohio State, UCLA and Long Beach State, all of their previous success means little without a victory over the Matadors — a team this group of players has had trouble with during their time at USC.“Our team hates losing as much as we enjoy winning,” senior middle blocker Hunter Current said. “We have been able to overcome pressure situations in previous matches, so we are looking to prove the same against Northridge.”While the Trojans were left searching for answers this past week, Northridge had arguably its best two performances of the season. The Matadors, behind senior leader opposite Theo Edwards and sophomore setter and assist leader Matt Stork, convincingly swept Pacific in three sets and upset previously second-ranked Stanford in a five-set stunner.CSUN will enter tonight’s 7 p.m. tussle with the Trojans in a bit of unfamiliar territory as well. The team’s 8-1 record is the best in school history — a history that has featured only one appearance in the NCAA final, back in 1993.Yet, while the chips may be stacked against the Trojans as they look to reclaim the top spot, many of the players are drawing on a motivational message they received from a guest speaker last season — former USC football head coach Pete Carroll.“He told us when you are playing a top-ranked team, a lot of guys think they have to play at a higher level to win the game,” junior setter Riley McKibbin said. “That’s when players tend to make some unreal plays but, more often than not, make mistakes.”McKibbin believes if the team can follow Carroll’s words and play consistent despite the level of competition they may be facing, the outcome will end favorably for the battle-tested Trojans.last_img read more
