It was the fifth consecutive victory and sixth in seven games for Syracuse (21-8, 10-5 Big East), and it sent many in the raucous Carrier Dome crowd of 26,287 rushing onto the court in jubilation. It also was only the Orange’s second triumph in six games against ranked teams, but this one halted an 11-game winning streak by the Big East’s first-place team, and that spoke volumes. SYRACUSE, N.Y. – It took Syracuse less than four minutes to build a strong case for postseason consideration. Senior Demetris Nichols and Andy Rautins each hit a pair 3-pointers to key a 14-0 second-half spurt that took just 3:42, and Syracuse beat No. 9 Georgetown 72-58 Monday night. Georgetown, first in the Big East and fifth nationally in scoring defense at 56.1 points per game, got a taste of its own medicine. The Hoyas shot 29.8 percent for the game, just 20 percent in the decisive second half against the Syracuse zone. “We picked the wrong night to have maybe our worst game of the year,” Georgetown coach John Thompson III said. “They just beat us.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “Two weeks ago, we didn’t deserve to be in \,” Syracuse head coach Jim Boeheim said after his 747th career victory, 13th all-time in Division I and one more than Phog Allen. “I’m proud of my kids. This game was the culmination. We knew five games ago we had to win and play well. The seniors deserve a lot of credit. This was our best game.” Georgetown (22-6, 12-3 Big East) had won 11 conference games in a row for the first time in school history and had defeated Pittsburgh 61-53 on Saturday to take sole possession of first place in the Big East. But the Hoyas fizzled against Syracuse’s 2-3 zone. They committed 19 turnovers that Syracuse converted into 25 points, and scored just six points off the Orange’s 13 turnovers. Jeff Green, Georgetown’s leading scorer, finished with nine points on 3-of-13 shooting, the first time he failed to crack double figures in 10 games. And 7-foot-3 center Roy Hibbert, who has had little success against Syracuse, continued that trend with just six points and two rebounds in 20 minutes. Starters Jessie Sapp, Jon Wallace and DaJuan Summers scored a combined 25 points on 4-for-29 shooting, with 15 coming from the free-throw line. “We just weren’t converting on offense, and that was a big key,” said Green, who had 10 rebounds. “We let them go on their runs and we didn’t go on ours.”
Former Fulham captain Brede Hangeland has joined Crystal Palace on a one-year contract.The 33-year-old Norway international was a free agent after leaving Craven Cottage following the club’s relegation from the Premier League.He will compete for a starting place at Selhurst Park with Scott Dann, Paddy McCarthy and Damien Delaney.Hangeland is the third close season signing for Tony Pulis’s side, following deals for Blackpool goalkeeper Chris Kettings and striker Fraizer Campbell from Cardiff.The ex-FC Copenhagen man, who played against Palace in Fulham’s 4-1 win at Selhurst Park last season, said: “I’m delighted to be here. I look forward to helping out and doing the best I can for this club.“I’m quite old school as a player, I just want to be part of a good group of players, working for a good manager, working really hard and driving something in the right direction.“All the people I spoke to told me that’s what’s going on at Crystal Palace and I really wanted to be a part of that.“It’s a traditional club with a big following. I thought the atmosphere here was fantastic and obviously the fans had a lot to be happy about come the end of the season.“If we can do something similar to that this season, that would be great. I’m really looking forward to playing in front of those fans as soon as possible.” Brede Hangeland 1
First half goals from Manguxi Quiberto and Brazilian Toni Roso Ribeiro saw the home side pick maximum points and throw Group D wide open.Nicholas Kipkurui headed home in added time off a Kenneth Muguna delivery, but it was too little too late.Despite a good start to the tie, Gor found themselves trailing after 12 minutes. Shafik Batambuze was caught in possession on the right by Leal Tiago who skipped into the box and cut back for Manguxi to wrap his boot around the ball and curl it beyond Boniface Oluoch.Gor had kept possession from the first whistle and had a sniff at goal in the third minute when Francis Mustafa, stepping in for the suspended Jacques Tuyisenge had a go at goal from distance but it didn’t trouble the keeper.Despite going down early, Gor still dictated the pace of the game and had the bigger chunk of possession.But they couldn’t create anything meaningful in the final third of play, the attacking duo of Mustafa and Erisa Ssekisambu failing terribly in their audition to permanently mark themselves a starting role in the team.-Oluoch mistakeGor were almost caught out after 31 minutes when Oluoch came off his line to punch away a cross from the left, but it fell kindly on Job Ricardo. However, the skipper couldn’t get a shot on target, the effort on the half volley going wide.Three minutes on the turn, the Kenyan champions had their first effort on target when Batambuze’s effort with a freekick from range flew straight into the keeper’s arms.With the little possession they had, the home side always created danger when they went up in attack.In the 35th minute, Leal came close to doubling the tally but his header off a Joao Diogenes cross went inches off target. Two minutes later though, they were 2-0 up.Joash Onyango playing as a makeshift right back in place of the suspended Philemon Otieno was turned inside out by Gaspar Mateus who swung in a frsit time cross that was met by Antonio’s diving header at the edge of the six yard box.With a 2-0 scoreline off their favor and a torridly ineffective forward line, Gor boss Hassan Oktay sought to re-jig matters and pulled out Boniface Omondi for George ‘Blackberry’ Odhiambo with two minutes to the break.-Gor Mahia surviveAt the start of the second half, the home side looked to get a third and put the game to rest and they began with pace. Four minutes after the restart, some fancy footwork saw Ricardo skip away from Joash to lift in a dangerous cross but Leal’s header was straight at Oluoch.Oktay made changes, the ineffective Mustafa coming off for KipkuruiK’Ogalo still got their tempo on, keeping possession and trying to open up the defense. In the 56th minute, Lawrence Juma tried his luck with a shot from the edge of the box but it went just over.Odhianbo had Gor’s next chance when his glancing header at the edge of the six yard box went just wide off a beautiful Kenneth Muguna cross.As they threw bodies forward, Gor were almost caught off their guard when another move on the wings saw Diogenes find space on the right to cross, but Leal’s shot from the cutback, unmarked, went wide.On the turn, Petro keeper Jorge Elber made a brilliant save to finger tip Charles Momanyi’s header from a corner.The Kenyan champions kept their surge and with 12 minutes left, Oktay threw in his last dice, Ssekisambu coming off for Samuel Onyango.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Hassan Oktay on the touchline during their SportPesa Cup match against Tanzania’s Mbao FC at the National Stadium in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania on January 23, 2018. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluNAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 13 – Gor Mahia’s hopes of a second successive CAF Confederations Cup Group D win was halted on Wednesday evening after going down 2-1 to Angola’s Petro Atletico at the November 11 Stadium in the capital Luanda.Gor travelled to Central Africa on the back of a hugely motivating match day one 4-2 win over giants Zamalek in Nairobi but had the stubborn monkey on their back of failing to win away from home.

When Hollywood meets Letterkenny! Saoirse, dad Paul and new friends from Donegal!A group of young Donegal actors were left star-struck when Hollywood star Saoirse Ronan paid them a surprise visit.Teenagers at the An Grianan Youth Theatre in Letterkenny were literally left speechless when The Lonely Bones star dropped by.Saoirse was accompanied by her dad and agent Paul Ronan. Paul is friendly with An Grianan Youth Theatre Co-ordinator Ronan Carr who arranged the shock visit.And instead of just visiting the young actors and signing autographs, Saoirse and Paul delivered a workshop for the delighted students.Daithi Ramsay of An Grainan Theatre said it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience for the young stage students.And he had nothing but praise for the young Dublin starlet’s approach to her fellow actors. “She was so down-to-earth and just got stuck in with the rest of the students.“She passed on some great information including how to approach a script and Paul was just so helpful.Saoirse gets a birthday cake from Patricia Toye from Patti Cakes“There was no airs or graces with them and everyone got on so well with them because they took the time to help everyone,” he said.But although Saoirse may have shocked the young acting students, they managed to get their own revenge.The group learned that Saoirse turned 19 today and presented the slightly-embarrassed star with a cake for the occasion. “It was the perfect end to a perfect day and we are so indebted to both Saoirse and Paul and to Ronan for organising the visit,” added Daithi.Saoirse helped put the group through their paces for their upcoming showcases on Wednesday, 15th May which will include An Occurrence at Owl Creek Bridge and Johnny Baluba Teenage Detective by Ronan Carr. The Youth Theatre is run by An Grianán Theatre and is affiliated to the National Association for Youth Drama.Saoirse told the students she would love to return for the youth theatre’s end-of-year drama presentation but may have to film instead.HOLLYWOOD STAR SAOIRSE GIVES DONEGAL ACTING STUDENTS A MASTER CLASS! was last modified: April 12th, 2013 by StephenShare 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:HollywoodPaul RonanSaoirse Ronan
