All the attention was on the Red Devils’ record goalscorer as the Rams hosted his old team and he caught the eye in more ways than one. Far from taking the 34-year-old’s greeting the wrong way, United fans on social media found the moment hilarious. And Pereira himself did not seem bothered at all as he patted Rooney on the back having helped his side to a 3-0 win.Advertisement The ex-England ace received a rapturous reception from the away end at Pride Park after featuring in the Derby midfield for the full 90 minutes. Pereira, meanwhile, came off the bench for the final 25 minutes and failed to add to the lone goal he has scored in 2019/20. Having arrived at Old Trafford from PSV Eindhoven’s youth academy in 2011, the 24-year-old spent five seasons with Rooney including two alongside him in the first-team.

Prince survives early scare to make clean sweep of round two(By Stephan Sookram in Trinidad and Tobago; compliments of B.M. Soat and Mohamed’s Enterprise)BRYCE Prince survived an early scare and changing weather conditions to continue his Caribbean Motor Racing Championship (CMRC) 2017 dominance with a clean sweep of round two Sunday.Inclement weather delayed the start of the day and caused several races to be pushed back, but Prince was flawless in the execution of his duties and even fought off the challenges of the hosts’ Nicholas Gonzalves on several occasions to be crowned the overall bike champion at the end of the day.Speaking to Chronicle Sport, Prince said, “All in all, we are happy for a good weekend; three wins are always a good thing and of course the points are important too.”Prince, of team Mohameds Enterprise R6 wasted no time in getting off the line first on all three occasions but had the challenge of battling changing weather conditions in race two.Azad Hassan joined the local Group One where he picked up one first place.In the Group Two division, an early incident between Trinidad’s Dr. Mark Williams and points leader, Luke Bhola, left the latter out of commission for the remainder of the day with a damaged rear suspension.Nonetheless, Barbadian Mark Thompson picked up two victories and a Did Not Finish (DNF) for valuable championship points; but the overall driver accolade in the class was picked up by Williams.Guyanese Rameez Mohamed had another mixed weekend, having continuous mechanical problems where he finished 8th out of the 18 car grid, saying, “That is racing. We had some difficulties that we didn’t see and we tried to make use of what we had.”Mohamed also entered Group Three where he picked up a fifth, fourth and a DNS (did not start), with Ronald Worthman and David Lyons each picking up one win.The final Group Three race results are under investigation following the issuing of the wrong flag at the wrong time which caused two cars to return to the pit.At the Group Four two-wheel drive end of things, It was a usual day at the office for Barbadian Mark Maloney who racked up two wins, but suffered mechanical troubles in Race Three where he did not finish.That allowed the host’s Franklyn Boodhram, who finished second on two occasions and first in Race Three to pick up the champion driver award.In the 4wd Drive class, Andrew King picked up two second place finishes to the Host’s Christian Bourne. The team began returning home yesterday.
Fifty years ago, Jim Boeheim was a freshman at Syracuse University. He would go on to walk onto the basketball team, playing three seasons and serving as a captain his senior year.Those years helped set the foundation for his Hall of Fame coaching career. It’s a career that has seen him win 890 games, a national championship and eight Big East titles – all at Syracuse. The head coach is entering his 37th season at SU as he leads the program into its final season in the Big East.At the team’s annual Orange Madness event Friday night, that history took center stage for a moment. Boeheim was introduced with a slide show of photographs, ranging from his playing days in the early 1960s to the last three-plus decades prowling the sidelines for Syracuse. He then rode to the Carrier Dome floor in a U.S. Army vehicle operated by soldiers from Fort Drum and Syracuse.Upon his arrival, Onondaga County Executive Joanie Mahoney presented Boeheim with a plaque – a proclamation – listing off his notable achievements piled up in his 50 years being associated with Syracuse. The plaque declared Oct. 12, 2012 as “Jim Boeheim Day” in Syracuse.The head coach addressed the crowd, speaking with pride as he held up his gold medal from the London Olympics before thanking the soldiers for their service. Without them, he said, simple everyday life wouldn’t be as easy and playing basketball wouldn’t be possible.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter his grand introduction, entrance and address, Boeheim watched his team scrimmage. The easygoing event provided some entertainment for fans, but it was far from an indicator of what to expect from a specific player or the team in general.Still, Boeheim expects another winning season on the beat, and the talent is there to accomplish that feat and more. After 50 years, Boeheim remains a fixture in the community and the face of the basketball program he built into a powerhouse and maintained until the school announced its move to the ACC year ago.****Trevor Cooney showcased his long-range shooting ability and finished with 11 points (three 3-pointers) in the team’s scrimmage. Boeheim said at media day the guard benefited greatly from sitting out last season. His teammates lauded him as a knockdown shooter, and Boeheim made it clear Cooney is not just a shooter. He sees him as an all-around player.*Jamesville-DeWitt product, freshman DaJuan Coleman, played strong and looked in shape to start the season. The center displayed his athleticism throughout the scrimmage and Boeheim said at media day that the 6-foot-9, 288 pound freshman is “more than ready to contribute.”*Syracuse women’s freshman guard Brittney Sykes competed in the dunk contest, attempting to become the first Orange women’s player to dunk. Her attempts fell short as the closest the 5-foot-9 Sykes got to dunking would be grazing the rim with her fingertips. Sykes arrived at SU among one of the most talented freshman classes in the country. The McDonald’s All-American was also impressive during the women’s scrimmage, hitting shots from beyond the arc and battling down low for offensive rebounds and finishes. James Southerland defended his dunk contest title. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 13, 2012 at 1:41 am Contact Ryne: email@example.com

USC junior pitcher Andrew Triggs ended last season with a 2-7 record and an injury that sidelined him for nearly the final month of the season.He will take the mound today at Rice University in Houston as the Trojans’ top starter.Opening debut · In his season debut against Missouri, starting pitcher Andrew Triggs allowed three runs through four and two-thirds innings. – Daily Trojan file photo “It’s a total 180 from where I really expected to be,” Triggs said. “I’m so pumped. It’s gonna be a blast.”The Trojans (3-1) open up a three-game weekend series today against No. 22 Rice at 2:30 p.m. It’s just another typical weekend against a ranked team for the Trojans, whose schedule includes nine teams currently in the top 25.Don’t be deceived by the Owls’ 2-3 record — two of those losses came last weekend to No. 8 Stanford. They lost to unranked Lamar on Tuesday and held off Texas State by one run Wednesday.The Trojans certainly do not take those as a sign of weakness.“They’re a good team, so they’re gonna be fired up,” Triggs said. “They’re gonna be ready to play. Don’t left records deceive you. It’s really early in the season, and they’re always one of those teams vying for a trip to Omaha.”There is no doubt about the talent the Owl’s possess.Rice infielder Anthony Rendon could easily be the first overall pick in this year’s MLB draft.“We’re gonna have to play our best to beat them,” said USC coach Frank Cruz. “We’ll really have to be on top of it.”As pitching goes, the Trojans have it pretty good. On the mound Saturday will be junior Austin Wood, the No. 22-ranked junior prospect in the nation and a former fourth-round draft pick of the Tampa Bay Rays.Senior Logan Odom will take the hill Sunday after keeping the Trojans in the game last Sunday against No. 24 North Carolina.Cruz has a new goal for his pitching staff: three walks or less for the entire game.“Pitchers throwing strikes and executing is big for us,” Cruz said. “Against Riverside [on Tuesday] we used nine pitchers, and eight of them were pretty good.”Timely hitting is also something USC could improve upon, as well.The Trojans have left a staggering 36 men on base in their first four games.But Cruz has seen improvement, especially in “small ball,” moving runners up base-by-base, as opposed to waiting for the three-run homer.“There was some execution [on Tuesday] that I really liked,” Cruz said. “[Our] situational hitting was good. Also, offensively, we had a higher number of base on balls than we did strikeouts yesterday. And we’re really trying to focus on that a lot right now.”There will be pressure on the middle of the Trojans lineup, particularly preseason All-American junior first baseman Ricky Oropesa, to match Rendon and the heart of the Rice order.Oropesa exemplified situational hitting with a bases-loaded double with two outs and the count full last Sunday against North Carolina to tie the game.“[Rendon] and Ricky [Oropesa] are two of the top hitters in the country,” Cruz said. “It will be a good series to feature the two of them.”Defense, meanwhile, is something the Trojans appear to have down. They have committed just one error in their four games so far.Chalk that one up to freshman nerves, as the middle infield combination of freshman shortstop James Roberts and senior second baseman and captain Joe De Pinto is about as solid as they come.“[De Pinto’s] given me a lot of pointers,” Roberts said. “As a freshman I’m not quite as consistent as seniors are, so he gets on me. He’s definitely improved my game.”Regardless of the outcome of its trip to Houston, the team insists that it can only stand to gain from the experience.“Early season road trips like this weather you take a series or come up short it’s good for cohesiveness,” Triggs said. “Instead of being around guys for four hours a day you’re around them for 24 hours a day. We already have good chemistry, but these kinds of trips only help. They’re a lot of fun.”

Like many of her teammates, Janelle Gabrielsen, a senior setter for Wisconsin, has been impressed with the development and maturity of the younger players on the team.[/media-credit]Coming off their second-longest road trip, the Badgers have something to smile about.While the first two tournaments of the road trip were marked with close losses, the Badgers pulled out the brooms to sweep all three of their matches on their way to winning the Art Carmichael Invitational in Kingston, Rhode Island.The Badgers never lost a single set at the tournament, bringing their record at the end of the nine game road trip to 6-3.It was a major step forward for head coach Pete Waite to see his squad steadily improving throughout the duration of a long journey away from Madison.“I saw progress from our first through our third weekend, especially in the way our group is coming together,” Waite said. “Just the fact that we’ve had young players on the court as freshmen, it takes time to get a feel for each other. I think they’re starting to gel better and play better together, understanding the concepts that we’ve given to them in practices. I was happy to see they played a higher level of ball this last weekend then they had the first two.”The Badgers have been seeking to improve on winning close sets, an area that haunted the team throughout last season. The team put away some of those demons in Rhode Island.“There were times in some of the matches where they were put in stressful situations and they stayed composed,” Waite said. “We went into extra points in the third set against Rhode Island and they were never fazed, they kept plugging away until they got the break they needed.”One Badger effort in particular that was recognized was freshman Courtney Thomas, who was named tournament MVP for her 29 kills in the three matches, including an 11 kill, 21 assist effort against Columbia in the final match of the tournament, giving the freshman her third double-double of the year.For Thomas, a key new player that is still recovering from a battle with mono this past summer, the award is an honor but nothing to dwell on.“I’m happy about it, but I’m still the same player,” Thomas said. “It’s an accomplishment, but that doesn’t change how hard the team works. I play for my team and not myself. It feels good though to be recognized for your performance.”Thomas’ teammates and coach, however, were not so shy about giving the freshman high praise.“Courtney came in from a great club and was ready to compete and ready to play,” senior Janelle Gabrielsen said. “Every time she’s out there she’s yelling and talking and most the time when you’re dealing with freshmen they’re quiet and timid. I think she’s going after it and that’s only helped us.”“I think it’s great for Courtney’s confidence, but she’s also a very composed and poised player on the court and that’s a big part of her success,” Waite said. “She’s well rounded in all the skill areas; it’s something she’s working hard for and she’s found she’s become a very good weapon in a lot of different ways.”With Thomas only one of the new faces in the Badger lineup, the tournament victories are adding to the confidence of the players throughout the matches leading up to Big Ten play. Another underclassman who is providing the Badgers with terrific play is sophomore Annemarie Hickey, who recorded 47 digs throughout the weekend matches.Hickey, who made the switch to the libero position this year, has kept the Badgers running with her solid play all over the floor.“I love the new position,” Hickey said. “I mean, I always have loved defense; I was an outside hitter before the shift this year. I know what I need to do; I need to dig every ball and pass perfectly. I’m still working on it because I’m only a sophomore and I think I’ve been doing an alright job so far and I’ve been getting by with my teammates great play.”“They’re starting to understand how to flow together as a team and that’s the important part,” Waite said. “Once they start doing that we’ll become much tighter as a unit and be able to achieve much greater heights.”
Esports in the Philippines recently received a massive boost after the government declared its official support for the industry.A statement from the Games and Amusements Board (GAB) was posted on the official Facebook page of Mineski.net, a local gaming organisation. The GAB is tasked with the regulation and supervision of “professional sports and allied activities”, mostly in order to prevent organised illegal gambling and match-fixing activities.In the statement, the GAB announced that they have “started recognizing esports or competitive computer/video gaming as among the professional activities falling under its regulation and supervision”. That means that esports is listed alongside boxing, basketball, football and more as falling under the jurisdiction of the government agency.The message went on to say that “While esports is different from the traditional competitions that we are used to, it cannot be denied that esports requires tremendous amounts of skill and training”. The announcement singles out multiplayer online battle arena games (MOBAs) in particular as requiring “careful planning and strong teamwork”.“With its growing popularity and commercial success in recent years, it has caught the attention of the government since up to now there seems to be no supervision and regulation in place.”So what does this move mean for local esports?Foremost in the minds of the GAB seems to be providing adequate protection for players, and ensuring that organisations look after their health and welfare. They will also be on the lookout for any improper conduct in order to “protect the integrity” of the competition and “prevent game-fixing, fraud, and possible breach of contracts that could leave our local players at a disadvantage”.In addition, the GAB has already licensed “about a dozen” Dota 2 players who will be competing in The International 2017 in the US state of Washington this month. The licences, usually reserved for professional athletes of traditional sports to engage in international competition, will allow members of Dota organisations Execration and TNC Pro Team to travel to the US. This is a hot topic in Dota 2, as only yesterday Swedish ex-pro Henrik “AdmiralBulldog” Ahnberg was denied access through customs at the US border where he was travelling to provide commentary for the year’s biggest tournament.Esports Insider says: official government recognition should provide a massive stabilising presence to esports competition and players in the Philippines. Other countries should look to the country’s example to provide regulation as the industry develops and matures.
