Hull held by Hammers

first_img Valencia won a back-post header to send Stewart Downing’s cross back across goal and a bundled finish off Sakho’s chest was goalbound until McGregor thrust a glove to his left to make a superb reaction save. Just four minutes later the hosts were ahead. Livermore and Ahmed Elmohamady outmanned Aaron Cresswell on the right wing before the Egyptian swung in a cross. Hernandez was the target and he brushed off the attention of James Tomkins to pick out the bottom corner with a wonderful header. It was a ruthless finish from the 24-year-old, who nearly went one better just before the break. Having been fed by Andy Robertson, he took a single touch on the edge of the box before thudding the crossbar with a piledriver. Jelavic headed home the rebound but came from an offside position. If the Hammers were glad to hear the half-time whistle it barely showed after the restart. They were on the front foot immediately and levelled in the 50th minute courtesy of Valencia’s stunner. He picked the ball up in relatively safe territory, but Dawson’s refusal to close him down allowed the striker to shuffle into range, before crashing home an unstoppable effort. For all the brilliance of the first two goals, the next two were down in large part to defensive error. With 64 minutes gone Cresswell’s loose throw-in was stolen by Diame, who picked Cheikou Kouyate’s pocket, bore down on goal and finished nonchalantly off the inside of the post. This time Hull’s lead lasted less than three minutes and was surrendered in the tamest of fashions. Sakho did well to find space in behind the defence but, having collected Downing’s pass, his low shot was a tame affair. But McGregor failed completely to get a hand on it and the last line of defence, Davies, only succeeded in finishing’s Sakho’s job for him. McGregor was partially redeemed when he pawed Sakho’s header out from under the crossbar, but Hull’s attempts to push for the win – in the shape of two more debutants, Gaston Ramirez and Hatem Ben Arfa – came to nothing. Instead the Hammers almost stole it, Valencia’s header coming off Dawson and hitting the bar. Press Association The home side lost the lead twice, club record signing Hernandez getting the ball rolling with an impeccable first-half header and Diame restoring the advantage against the side he left on transfer deadline day. In between Enner Valencia had marked his first league start with a blockbuster strike from 25 yards and the 2-2 draw was settled when Diafra Sakho’s modest shot evaded Allan McGregor, only for Davies to bundle over his own line. Debut goals from Hull pair Abel Hernandez and Mohamed Diame were only good enough for a draw against West Ham as a Curtis Davies own-goal ensured the spoils were shared in a breathless encounter at the KC Stadium. Valencia almost won it in added time when his header rebounded off Dawson’s shoulder and rattled the crossbar, but that might have been harsh on the home side. Hull can be particularly pleased with the contribution of Hernandez, who also clattered the woodwork in a display that looked a good down payment on the £9.5million sent Palermo’s way, while Diame was desperate to impress against his former employers. West Ham, meanwhile, can rightly be enthused by the forward pairing of Diafra and Valencia, who showed real understanding on their first outing together. It was, in many ways, a shame for the match to be settled by the messiest goal in four, and McGregor in particular will be aggrieved having made two fine saves in the match. The game got off to a lively start, both sides tearing around without taking a breath in the opening minutes. There was more energy than genuine craft in those early exchanges but Diame enjoyed a satisfying moment, taking the ball round his former captain Mark Noble with a deft touch and winning a first ovation from his new fans. Hull came close to making significant breakaways on a couple of occasions, notably when Hernandez’s clever back-heel for Nikica Jelavic almost saw the Croatian in behind the away defence, while Jake Livermore wasted a fine chance to counter with a mis-hit pass. Sakho and Valencia were showing signs of life at the other end of the pitch and the the former must have thought he had opened the scoring in the 35th minute. last_img read more

UW’s playoffs begin now

first_imgGREGORY DIXON/Herald photoTechnically the playoffs started last weekend, but it will be this weekend’s games that truly test the No. 1 University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team and offer it a chance to claim the WCHA championship for the second consecutive season.After easily defeating North Dakota in the WCHA tournament’s opening series, Wisconsin will face Ohio State Saturday with the winner going on to play in the tournament final against the winner of the intrastate battle between Minnesota and Minnesota-Duluth.Ohio State will present a formidable offensive challenge to Wisconsin’s red-hot defense. Leading charge for the Buckeyes will be forward Erin Keys, who is second in the conference in points with 48.Keys will face a Badger defense that hasn’t allowed a goal in four games, spanning over 247 minutes. In fact, the last team to score against Wisconsin’s stingy defense was Ohio State.Unlike UW’s last two opponents, however, OSU has a potent offense, averaging 3.11 goals per game. A strong opposition on offense bodes well for Badger netminder Jessie Vetter.”It’s a lot easier to see more shots,” Vetter said of the transition between playing a weak offensive team and a strong one. “You’re just in the game throughout, and you don’t have to worry about keeping yourself warm.”Badgers head coach Mark Johnson has not yet announced who will start in goal Saturday and is not expected to do so until Friday night. The battle is between sophomore Jessie Vetter and senior Christine Dufour. Neither Vetter nor Dufour have seen too many shots this season, largely due to the play of the defense — a Badger strength all season long that will be integral in this weekend’s matchup.”It’s important as always,” junior defender Emily Morris said of the team’s defense. “We have a really strong defense and it will be key to our success as it’s been all year and as it will be hopefully in the future.”Ohio State is also strong defensively and is led by three all-conference performers — Lisa Bowman, Amber Chesson and Tessa Bonhomme. While the Buckeyes allow 2.31 goals per game, they have had trouble stopping the Badgers’ offense all season.Even though the Badgers have won all four meetings with the Buckeyes this season, three of them have come in hotly contested 3-2 games. This time should be no different, as Ohio State’s season will be on the line Saturday.While UW is a virtual lock to make the NCAA tournament regardless of this weekend, OSU, currently ranked 10th in the country, will need at least one win, probably two, if it wants to be one of the NCAA tournament’s eight teams.Playing against a team that is desperate for a win is never an easy feat, but the Badgers, as always, will be ready for the challenge.”We have to take it one game at a time,” junior Jinelle Zaugg said. “Ohio State is always a good match; they’ve always been a team that battles us. Coach always says the hardest team to play is a team you’re trying to eliminate. If we win, we end their season, and that’s never an easy thing to do. They’re going to want to win badly.”Wisconsin’s semifinal game will be the first played Saturday, meaning the Badgers will have the opportunity to scout the second game should they advance. Seventh-ranked Minnesota-Duluth is the only team to have beaten Wisconsin this season and No. 9 Minnesota is the host team, so both squads present their own challenges. The Badgers, however, say they have no preference about who they meet in the tournament finals.”I think either way they’re very good teams,” Vetter said. “We’ll have to compete and perform and hopefully we can make it to the [championship game.]”last_img read more

Clippers goal in restart against Lakers Thursday is to rebuild ‘winning habits’

first_imgCenter Montrezl Harrell and guard Lou Williams aren’t expected to be available Thursday; it appeared that Harrell was away still early on Wednesday and Williams will remain stuck in a 10-day league-mandated quarantine following a much-publicized stop for chicken wings while he was outside of the bubble for a funeral.Patrick Beverley is a firm “maybe,” Rivers said Wednesday morning, after the fiery guard left to tend to a personal matter and returned to quarantine Sunday.The rest of the Clippers roster should be intact, though not up to speed. Center Ivica Zubac and shooting guard Landry Shamet only recently flew in and will need time to recover their wind and rhythm.With all the coming an going, Rivers said he’s looking ahead to the seeding games not with the goal of fine-tuning and finessing — but with the intention of getting his team on its collective feet and fit.And then maybe then the Clippers can turn their attention to world domination.“Getting to a peak conditioning level,” Rivers said, via Zoom, as all his interviews and news conferences now are held. “It’s very important. Like you’ve got to get through these eight games. By the end of the eight games, you’re going to the playoffs. When you’re going to the playoffs, you’re usually at your peak place, especially conditioning and rhythm and timing. That would be my goal.“Obviously you want to win games, but if you told me we didn’t, but when we started the playoffs we were at the peak in each of those places, I would tell you I’d take that right now.”Likewise, Clippers star Kawhi Leonard expressed less concern with seeding victories than with reestablishing the continuity that had been so hard to come by for the Clippers before the hiatus: L.A. played only 11 games all season with a full lineup — and the Clippers were plenty formidable on those rare occasions, winning 10 times and losing only to a motivated, Western Conference-leading Lakers team on March 8.“Everybody plays a different game,” said Leonard, who was averaging career highs in points (26.9), assists (5), and rebounds (7.3) in his first season with the Clippers.“Just able to get out of their way or able to give it to the guys that are missing, to give them the ball in their spots so they can score, or just even on defense, being in the gap, knowing who’s going to help you or how much extra effort that person is giving at that time,” Leonard continued. “It’s just little things like that that you’re missing on the floor.”Because the Clippers haven’t had the luxury of using the three few weeks of warm-up and trio of scrimmages to truly reconnect on the court, they’ll have to do it when it counts. They know that, Leonard said.“We’ve got eight games to get ready for the playoffs,” the two-time NBA Finals MVP said. “We’ve got to use these games to build some habits and just build team chemistry really … just winning habits, pretty much.“It’s either missing a defensive assignment, running through some players, just making sure we’re executing our plays down the stretch. Just knowing who you’re playing with, knowing your teammates’ habits, knowing what they do well, trying to help them do it well, and that’s pretty much it.“Just trying to build the team chemistry to win.” A healthy Clippers squad was 44-20 and threatening to really start wreaking havoc.Doc Rivers, Kawhi Leonard, Paul George and Co. had won seven of eight games. They were building chemistry and momentum, and looked primed for a potentially historic postseason push.But just when things really were getting really good, the power went out.On March 11, basketball stopped. Almost everything stopped. And the coronavirus took hold. So, on Thursday, in the midst of the pandemic as well as protests over social injustice that are ongoing outside the bubble and within it, NBA basketball restarts for real.The Clippers will tip off Thursday against the Lakers, the fourth episode of this season’s regular-season series selected to headline re-opening night on Thursday (6 p.m., Fox Sports Prime Ticket, TNT). The Clippers are 2-1 against their normal Staples Center co-tenants.It’ll be the first of eight seeding games for both teams before the playoffs, which will be begin Aug. 17 in line with the traditional format.The Clippers will try to make good on their hiatus motto, “Win the Wait,” although it will be tough to pick up exactly where they left off. The team that was at last were coalescing back in March hasn’t had an opportunity tune up together in the bubble. Personal issues and positive coronavirus tests have meant that eight of the 15 Clippers on the restart roster either were delayed arriving or had to leave. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error More than four months later, it hasn’t let go: As of Wednesday, there’s been upward of 4.5 million confirmed cases in the United States, and more than 152,000 deaths.On Tuesday in Florida, site of the NBA bubble that might have seemed like science fiction a few months ago, health officials reported 9,230 new cases and 191 deaths.Early on, before the cases and casualties had climbed so staggeringly high, NBA Commissioner Adam Silver said he was at a loss for when play could resume.But in the months that followed, as Clippers players stayed in daily contact via a group chat, challenging each other during workouts over Zoom and training on equipment delivered to them by the team, the league hatched a plan to resume play.With stringent safety protocols in place, the NBA will continue its interrupted season on a closed campus at Walt Disney World Resort in Lake Buena Vista, Fla. As it stands, the bubble is intact, with NBA and NBPA reporting Wednesday that, for the second consecutive week, none of the 344 players tested was positive for the coronavirus.last_img read more
