After concluding its exhibition season with an 88-33 victory over UW-Platteville Sunday, the Wisconsin women’s basketball team is ready to tip off the regular season.”It feels nice to come into the regular season 2-0 in exhibitions,” head coach Lisa Stone said. “Two state schools and some opportunities for us to get some people some playing time and show improvement from week to week as well as preparing now for the regular season. The intensity will surely rise a bit as we have a lot of games in a short amount of time, but we’re healthy right now, our young players are gaining some maturation, if you will, and we’re working on finding combinations. I’m very pleased where we’re at, at this present moment.”Wisconsin opens the season this weekend with a game Friday versus Houston and Sunday versus Cleveland State.Still room for improvement: While the Badgers won both of their exhibition games by a large margin, Coach Stone was quick to say that her team was far from perfect heading into the regular season.As coaches always point out that the little things still need to improve, so did Stone.”We need to do a much better job boxing out, rebounding is huge,” Stone said. “In our exhibition games we were able to just athletically jump up and get the ball. We need to make contact, in particularly with some of these non-conference teams that we play, that will just jump right over our back. We need to make contact, be more physical, continue to apply better ball pressure, lessen touches inside, better decisions offensively — I think in transition we get a little careless at times. Again that’s early, those are things that we can fix, but overall I’m pleased.”Wisconsin to continue playing state schools in exhibitions: This was the first season that Wisconsin hosted other state schools in the exhibition season and Coach Stone said she will continue to play opponents from the WIAC conference, the same conference where she built UW-Eau Claire into one of the top Division III programs in the nation during the late-’90s.”I think it’s great for the state to have them experience the Kohl Center and be in this venue,” Stone said. “Obviously we want to find out where we’re at in the present moment — competitiveness, etc. People can question and not question, I’m a big believer in the WIAC; I always have been and I’m an advocate for the conference. If we can help them and they can help us then it’s a great experience for everybody.”Next season, the Badgers will be playing UW-Stevens Point in an exhibition game.Rotation not yet set in ‘Stone’: It seems as though the starting lineup is in place with Jolene Anderson, Janese Banks and Ashley Josephson on the perimeter and Kjersten Bakke and Annie Nelson in the post, but as far as the rest of the lineup Stone says she is not ready to establish a rotation just yet.Based off of the exhibition showings, however, it seems as though sophomore forward Danielle Ward has earned herself a certain spot off the bench.”[Ward’s] fun to watch,” Stone said. “Some of the things that this young girl can do are amazing. She has slowed her wheels down inside and letting the game come to her, but she can run and catch. She’s solidified herself in the rotation without a question.”Sophomore guard Akiya Alexander, too, helped secure herself some minutes off the bench with her preseason performance.”[Alexander’s] play was really, really solid,” Stone said. “She’s composed as a point guard and to give us another dimension that again will boil down to the question of consistency. Can Akiya and Danielle bring that every day?”

Powered by Firework Every football fan around the world remembers the 2006-07 UEFA Champions League final face off between two European giants- FC Barcelona and Arsenal, where the former achieved glory. However, former Gunners boss Arsène Wenger has said that the match would have gone different if video assistant referee system as available back then.Advertisement Image Courtesy: Getty/ReutersThat was during the Frenchman’s 10th spell with the club, as they reached the final for the first time, beating out Real Madrid, Juventus and Villarreal, 6 years after the defeat against Turkish powerhouse Galatasaray in the 1999 UEFA Cup final.Pitted against a feared Catalan side, the Gunners were the first to make a break into the score sheet with a power header from Sol Campbell. Although, the La Liga giants came out on top, beating out the Premier League elites 2-1, including the infamous offiside goal from Samuel Eto’o.Advertisement Cut back to 13 years, today the 69 year old feels the match could have been different if VAR was available back then.Replays have shown that the Blaugrana opener in the 76th minute was a clear offside, as the Cameroonian attacker was ahead of Kolo Toure, which missed the eyes of the Norwegian referee Terje Hauge.Advertisement In an interview with beIN Sports, Wenger wished how VAR’s usage in that match would have altered the club’s history.“It is the final of the 2006 Champions League, because I think Eto’o’s equaliser was offside. That would have changed the history of Arsenal football club.” he said.After the controversial goal from Eto’o and the match winner from Beletti, nearing the end of the game, Frank Rijkaard’s side lifter the trophy, leaving the Gunners out from tasting the most prestigious silverware of European football, which is still absent in the club’s trophy room.

Watanga FC made nonsense of pre-match predictions and kicked out Monrovia Club Breweries out of the 2014 FA Cup with a 4-1 thrashing in the first match of the tournament at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium, yesterday.In the second match, LPRC-Oilers came from a 1-0 down in the second half to find the equalizer and then moved on to eliminate the Liberian champions BYC, 5-4 on penalties.Oilers will now face FC Fassell who drew a bye and moved to the semi-finals automatically.Now with Oilers as their opponents, they will clash in the semi-finals on March 3, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.Oilers yesterday had their game, putting lots of pressure on BYC who played their game with occasional counter attacks. Oilers’ Soto Roberts cancelled BYC’s goal that right winger Lamin Jabateh scored in the 43rd minute midway in the second half.By all indications LPRC-Oilers deserved their victory since they played a much better and purposeful game.Left winger Vincent Joseph, Myers Gallo and striker Adonis Peter fought bravery but their attempts at goal could not materialize because they were too hasty outside their opponents’ area that they could not initiate any effective tactic to beat the offside traps set by their opponents.They would attack from the wings and push BYC into their own area but forgot that the officiating referee and his linesmen were keeping watch of the offside rules.The players would simply rush, ignoring the offside rule and they were caught at each occasion. They earned several corner-kicks but they could not convert them into goals.At least two of their players earned an unnecessary yellow card caution when they played rough against their opponents.The game ended 1-1 and the five-five penalty kicks were applied and the Oilers managed to win 5-4.The third match was in progress at press time between LISCR FC and NPA, in match that was expected to be more exciting.There were side attractions worth mentioned here. Vuvuzelas blew across the stadium, along with two drummer groups who entertained the crowd and the teams as well as a brass band. The band played memorable tunes that delighted the fans who witnessed some of the best games of the year.The winner of LISCR FC v NPA will meet Watanga in the second game on March 3 at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Ireland Women are just one win away from a maiden RBS 6 Nations Grand Slam after Ailis Egan’s second-half try earned them a narrow 15-10 victory over France – with Donegal’s Nora Stapleton and Larissa Muldoon playing their part in the historic win.Trailing 10-5 at half-time, Ireland roared back with Egan burrowing over to add to Niamh Briggs’ first-half score – the full-back slotting the conversion and adding a late penalty.In following up victories over Wales, England and then Scotland, Ireland clinched just a second ever win over France – the first coming in 2009 – meaning only Italy stand between them and the Grand Slam. France, who had designs on leapfrogging Ireland in the table at Ashbourne, having won their last two fixtures, began the brighter and took the lead when fly-half Sandrine Agricole knocked over a penalty in the first ten minutes but Briggs wasted little time in putting her side ahead.A fine move saw No.8 Joy Neville find Briggs, who sped through the gap and dotted down on the right-hand side, before dragging her conversion just wide.The lead did not last long however and France hooker Gaëlle Mignot grabbed her side’s only try of the night soon after, Agricole again on target with a fine kick from the right, handing les Bleues a 10-5 lead.Ireland did their best to respond and had Ashleigh Baxter’s inside pass not gone forward, centre Lynn Cantwell would surely have raced clear. France led by five at the break but Ireland came roaring out of the blocks in the second period and after some fine rucking at close quarters, Egan forced her way over – Briggs adding the extras to put Ireland ahead again.That prompted wave after wave of attacks from the hosts but some resolute defending and handling errors from Ireland kept the French within two points.When the visitors finally started to enjoy some territory, a fluffed drop goal attempt was the best they could muster and when Briggs was on target with a late penalty, just after one had hit the post, Ireland led by five and successfully ran down the clock.They will now head to Milan looking to clinch the Grand Slam on St Patrick’s Day and they will be crowned champions on Sunday if Italy fail to beat England.Should Italy down the seven-time defending champions, both sides would be in with a chance of lifting the crown next Sunday. 15 Niamh Briggs14 Ashleigh Baxter13 Lynne Cantwell12 Jenny Murphy11 Alison Miller10 Nora Stapleton9 Larissa Muldoon1 Fiona Coghlan2 Gillian Bourke3 Ailis Egan4 Sophie Spence5 Marie Louise Reilly6 Siobhan Fleming7 Claire Molloy8 Joy NevilleReplacements:16 Stacey-Lea Kennedy17 Fiona Hayes18 Lauren Day19 Leigh Dargan20 Laura Guest21 Amy Davis22 Grace Davitt23 Niamh KavanaghDONEGAL GIRLS HELP IRELAND TO STUNNING RBS 6 NATIONS VICTORY OVER FRANCE was last modified: March 9th, 2013 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:DONEGAL GIRLS HELP IRELAND TO STUNNING RBS 6 NATIONS VICTORY OVER FRANCE

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Pamela SmithDTN Progressive Farmer Crops Technology EditorDECATUR, Ill. (DTN) — DTN is looking for two farmers to document and share their 2019 growing season.For the past 14 years, DTN’s View From the Cab series has encouraged readers to experience the successes, struggles and dreams of two farm families from spring planting through harvest. Now we’re looking for volunteers to step into the role for 2019.Genny Haun reported in from Kenton, Ohio, this past year. She said the experience caused the Layman Farms team to adopt a habit of gathering each week to review and plan ahead. “It did wonders to keep us all on the same track and that’s something we want to continue,” said Haun.Kyle Krier filed his weekly reports from Claflin, Kansas. He said reader responses and hearing what was happening in Ohio each week made him think beyond his own fields and furrows.“It definitely opened my eyes to agriculture in other regions and how diverse it truly is in the U.S.,” said Krier. “I loved learning about the challenges, differences in practice and how others use their time and abilities for their own prosperity.”The 2018 season definitely contained its moments. We interviewed Haun and Krier via texts, direct messages, emails, phone calls and personal visits to each farmer. We talked to them while they were baling hay, hauling kids to preschool and trying to fix computer issues (everyone’s worst nightmare). We birthed two babies, lamented employee labor challenges, disagreed and agreed on dicamba, crunched through crop insurance concerns and covered many other agricultural issues.What makes View From the Cab special as an editorial feature is it is real and celebrates the day-to-day.“The whole experience reminded me why I decided to farm in the first place,” Haun noted. “Agriculture is truly a passion of mine, and I want our family operation to run as efficiently and effectively as possible. I also want to stay actively involved in the agriculture community both at my local level and state.”Farmers interested in participating in View From the Cab during the 2019 season should send us a short note and tell us why you and your farm should be featured in this series.

A sharp rise in the number of attacks on the traders in the outskirts of Gurugram by dreaded gangsters has resulted in the business community protesting on the worsening law and order time and again. The traders have been demanding that is a need for more police vigilance in the outskirts of the city like Sohna, Pataudi and Badshahpur where the rates of crime against the traders are rising rapidly.
