Wasteful West Brom shocked by Norwich

first_img Press Association Hooper scored the opener in the 13th minute, smashing an unstoppable drive into the top corner, before Fer finished off a sharp counter late on to seal a 2-0 victory. West Brom had countless chances to take at least a point from this game with Stephane Sessegnon twice failing to convert great opportunities and Shane Long also guilty of being profligate in front of goal. It is now one win in nine games for the Baggies, and Steve Clarke’s side were booed off at full-time. The midweek hiding against a Luis Suarez-inspired Liverpool had put Canaries boss Chris Hughton’s position under further scrutiny, but he would have been delighted with the way his side responded here to secure an away win for just the second time this season. After starting brightly they took the lead with a wonderful strike from Hooper. Nathan Redmond fed Fer, who picked out the striker’s run with the aid of a deflection off Diego Lugano’s heel. The angle of the pass was taking Hooper away from goal but he fizzed a superb strike beyond Boaz Myhill. Albion sought a quick response with Youssouf Mulumbu, back from suspension, firing straight at John Ruddy after nice link play with Morgan Amalfitano. The Frenchman’s teasing cross from the right then saw Victor Anichebe get in a header which Ruddy gratefully grasped. Norwich were being penned in their own half but Johan Elmander should have done better from a quick break. The Swede’s flick on found Hooper, who quickly returned him the ball. However, Elmander then ignored his better placed strike partner as he drove forward and saw his shot blocked. The hosts were soon back on the offensive, with Ruddy tipping a fierce Anichebe shot wide of goal, before Sessegnon contrived to fail to make any contact with a Chris Brunt corner which found him unmarked. It summed up West Brom’s first half and Clarke made two changes at the break, bringing on Long and Saido Berahino for Liam Ridgewell and, surprisingly, Amalfitano. They helped spark Albion into a very strong start to the second half and they could have had a penalty when a Sessegnon shot, after a goalmouth scramble, struck Martin Olsson on the arm as he made the block. They should have been level in the 52nd minute when Sessegnon surged past two Norwich defenders into the box, but the Frenchman rolled his shot wide of the post having beaten the advancing Ruddy. At the other end Redmond’s pace proved too much to handle for Uruguay defender Lugano, whose vulnerability will doubtless be noted by England manager Roy Hodgson, but the winger’s pull-back could not find Hooper. Sessegnon then spurned another chance after Olsson had gifted the ball to him six yards out, with Ruddy making the save. Long became the latest man to miss for West Brom a few moments later. Mulumbu’s deflected shot fell to him in the area, but his shot was too tame to beat Ruddy. Mulumbu fizzed an effort wide but all the home side’s pressure came to nothing and they were punished as Redmond found Fer for the midfielder to cut inside and fire low beyond a flat-footed Myhill with a minute remaining. Norwich bounced back from their Anfield nightmare as goals from Gary Hooper and Leroy Fer earned them a valuable win over West Brom at The Hawthorns.last_img read more

Men’s hockey: Badgers split Northern Michigan series 1-1, continue dominant start

first_imgComing off a successful 2-0 road trip in New York, the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team were stifled by a hungry Northern Michigan team Friday before battling back to even the series 1-1 Sunday.The Wildcats (3-6-1) jumped on the Badgers (5-3-0) 33 seconds into the opening period of Friday night’s game to score their first of five total goals.The Badgers answered ten minutes later when star freshman forward Trent Frederic took it himself from center ice to net a top-shelf power play score to put Wisconsin on the board.The Wildcats scored three unanswered goals after Frederic’s effort, shutting the Badgers out in the second period. Northern Michigan set the tone physically from the opening face-off, allowing their defense to hold the prolific Badger offense to just one score through two and a half periods.Head coach Tony Granato said postgame the team missed some important chances.“We couldn’t capitalize on our chances,” Granato said. “We had some power play chances at pivotal points of the game where we could’ve got back in the game and didn’t.”Men’s hockey: Badgers dominate offensively on the road, improve to 4-2The University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team impressed in upstate New York this weekend, sweeping their two-game weekend against No. Read…The Badgers final goal of the game came on a penalty shot after sophomore forward Seamus Malone was hooked on a breakaway following a steal from Wisconsin’s blue line.Other than Frederic and Malone’s individual efforts, the previously-prolific Badger offense could not seem to get past the brick wall led by Northern Michigan’s sophomore goalie Mathias Israelsson. The young goaltender had an impressive 34 saves and held a Badgers team who has averaged 4.3 goals a game to just two scores.Wisconsin’s goaltender made some plays too, but not the kind anyone wants to be remembered for. Five minutes into the second, following the Wildcats third straight score, freshman goaltender Jack Berry replaced the struggling Matt Jurusik who allowed four scores in his 25-minute stint on the ice.“I’m fine,” Jurusik said. “Next time I get the net I’ll be better.”Jurusik’s younger replacement, Berry, kept the Badgers in the game, shutting down all six Wildcat shots on the net and giving the coaches a decision to make regarding the starter for game two.“That’s not an easy situation to come in because if you give up another goal the games over, and he’s done it twice for us against good teams and gave us that chance,” Granato said. “We’re going to make a decision on whether or not he’ll start tomorrow. There’s a good chance he’ll start.”The Badgers took another loss as senior forward Grant Besse slammed into the boards after willing his way to the net in effort to get his team going.“Obviously, he hit the boards hard, and that’s a scary part of the ice,” Granato said. “You’re going to the net, you’re off balance a little bit and you get bumped. There’s not a whole lot of chance to recover, so hopefully it’s not too bad.”A frustrating night and a key injury will prove to be a real test for this young Badger team. Despite the loss in injuries and the scoreboard, the resilient Wisconsin squad rallied and took down NMU Sunday behind a shutdown defensive effort.Berry stepped up in his first career start and recorded 22 saves on the day. Regular suspects sophomore forward Luke Kunin and junior forward Cameron Hughes notched two to give the Badgers the lead before dropping back and securing a huge win for the team.Wisconsin now takes an extended break, waiting to play Merrimack University at home on Nov. 18 and 19.last_img read more

My goodness, they bring it,” said Eric Adams, Wellington head girls basketball coach about Sterling. “In my three years of coaching I’ve never seen a team play as hard as that team tonight, with the exception of us.”Wellington never led in the first half, but never trailed after the opening sequence of the second half. Mitchell, who had three fouls and five points in the first half, would open the second half and score 15 points – and never garnered another foul.Lauryn Snipes was the leading scorer with 23 points, including 15 points in the first half – much of that coming in a span in which Mitchell was sitting the bench.“She really stepped it up during that time and showed why she was Ark Valley Chisholm Trail Div. IV player of the year last season,” Adams said.The thing is, Wellington still hasn’t looked like it has come close to its potential with spurts of poor shooting and turnovers.And for much of this game it was about survival.Sterling’s Kylah Comley would score 29 points – 23 in the first half including six three-pointers.The Black Bears also opened the game taking a 7-0 lead, and kept that lead throughout the half. They were in front 20-14 at the end of the first half and upped the lead to 30-21 when Mitchell got her third foul and went to the bench early in the second quarter.At that point, the Crusaders were clearly in trouble. Only they weren’t. The team showed its diversity as a team and shaved the lead to three. It was 34-25 when Snipes hit a three-pointer and a deuce thereafter. Then with 2.2 seconds left in the half, she hit a trey to pull Wellington to within three 36-33.“They were really loose in the locker room at the half,” Adams said. “They felt like they had it.”Mitchell would hit a trey to start the second half to make it 36-all and then Snipes created a steal and layup to give the Crusaders their first lead of the night, 38-36. Wellington would never look back. The Crusaders led 48-42 at the end of third quarter.Wellington would build the lead to nine, 51-42 and then spent the rest of the game playing keep away. Sterling would eventually narrow the margin to four at the buzzer.“It was a state tournament atmosphere out there on the court tonight,” Adams said.Wellington now travels to Andale this Tuesday.

Govt alone with its guns cannot reduce crime – Pastor

first_img…rehabilitation programmes must be set up for ex-offenders“Government alone, with all their guns, vehicles and professionals, cannot reduce crime and recidivism; it takes the unmatched volunteerism and goodwill of the local faith-based authorities, and the resources of Government and donor agencies like the EU (European Union) and the Private Sector, to actualise the needed reduction in crime”.Pastor Wendell JeffreyThese were the sentiments of Pastor Wendell Jeffrey, who is facilitating the 10th European Development Forum (EDF) on Crime and Violence Prevention and Social Development Project, being held with the intent of providing trainers with information to help ex-offenders in prison.The Regional workshop, dubbed ‘Train-the-Trainers’, will focus on Restorative Justice under the ‘Sycamore Tree Project’ being held at the Grand Coast Hotel at Le Ressouvenir, East Coast Demerara.According to Jeffrey, the training will be geared towards training persons who happen to be ex-offenders, and the intent is to conduct rehabilitation programmes with prisoners.He pointed out, “I have long argued that significant and precipitous decline in crime across the Caribbean states will only come when there is a formal marrying of governmental and corporate funding, coupled with the involvement of faith-based, private sector and civic-minded organisations”.Through this collaboration, Jeffrey said, a post-release rehabilitation programme can be developed, as the need for an ex-offender rehabilitation programme across the Caribbean remains evident.According to him, the formal facilities should be a place “where ex-offenders can participate in programmes when they are released from prison”.The facilitator noted that those institutions would need to be fully funded and managed for the sole purpose of transitioning individuals back into the society.He pointed to the grave need for such a programme in Guyana, especially since only a few Caribbean countries currently have such provisions, and have earmarked monies for the intended purposes.This much needed programme is being kicked off now, Jeffrey said, with the launch of the Train-the-Trainers workshop, which will allow for over 60 persons to be equipped with knowledge in the area of prison rehabilitation.“The programme will build from a comprehension of what is termed restorative justice to the actual engagement of ex-offenders and recovering addicts in practical applications,” he explained.Among the areas which will be discussed with prisoners are how their criminal behaviour would affect their victims, as well as the genesis of criminal behaviours of perpetrators.Jeffrey’s statements were endorsed by the Head of the European Union Delegation to Guyana and Suriname, Jerney Videtic, who said that increased punishment will not be effective in lowering the crime rate.According to him, “The assumption that increasing punishment will reduce crime can be applied to three categories of perspective offenders. The first category being criminals who believe they will be apprehended, the second being those who believe they will not be caught, and the third being delinquents who believe they might be arrested; so increasing penalty will only have an impact upon those who believe they might get caught”.It is because of this that the diplomat noted that immediate sanctions should be imposed on perpetrators, rather than giving them lengthy stays in the prisons.The EU is providing funding for the workshop, which will last for just about five days.The Sycamore Tree Project is an in-prison restorative justice programme which seeks to bring together unrelated victims and offenders to discuss crime and its impact. It takes its name from the story of Zacchaeus and his encounter with Jesus in the Bible.A senior member of the organizing team related that they aspire to reach the prisons and begin their mission by January.last_img read more
