Gigginstown up for the Cup

first_img The Willie Mullins-trained Sir Des Champs, runner-up in the Cheltenham Gold Cup, heads the trio, with Aintree’s Betfred Bowl winner First Lieutenant from Mouse Morris’s stable and Colm Murphy’s dual Grade One scorer Quito De La Roque completing the strong team. Gigginstown’s racing manager Eddie O’Leary said: “All going well, the plan is for Sir Des Champs to run in the Punchestown Gold Cup. We were second at Cheltenham and you can’t change the result but we’ll hope for a good show at Punchestown.” Gigginstown House Stud are planning a powerful three-horse assault on the Bet Online With The Tote.com Punchestown Gold Cup at the County Kildare track on April 24. He added: “There’s a good chance that First Lieutenant will run as well. It’s been all good so far with him after Aintree and the horse will line up as long as he tells us he wants to run. “Quito De La Roque is likely to go for the race as well. We were happy enough with him at Aintree – he ran a very good race at his level and probably just wasn’t quite good enough there.” Gigginstown House Stud, owned by O’Leary’s brother Michael, are bidding for a first Irish owners’ championship this season and are currently around 200,000 euro ahead of JP McManus in the title race. center_img Press Associationlast_img read more

Mitchell Johnson retires from all forms of cricket

first_imgSydney, Aug 19: Australia left-arm pacer Mitchell Johnson on Sunday announced his retirement from all forms of cricket.Johnson last played for Indian Premier League side Kolkata Knight Riders in this edition. After calling it a day in international cricket in November 2015, Johnson trotted the globe playing in different T20 tournaments.“It’s over. I’ve bowled my final ball. Taken my final wicket. Today I announce my retirement from all forms of cricket,” Johnson said in a column on Perth Now.“I had hoped to continue playing in various Twenty20 competitions around the world until perhaps the middle of next year. But the fact is my body is starting to shut down.”Johnson reasoned that he had been suffering from back problems during the IPL and added that it was an indication for him to call time.“If I can’t play at 100 per cent then I can’t give my best to the team. And for me it’s always been about the team,” he said.“I’m ready to break clear of playing cricket and move on to the next period of my life. He has recently been through retiring himself and I think he understood that when you’re done, you’re done.”Johnson hinted that he would continue being involved with the game by taking up coaching roles in the future.“My competitive urge hasn’t left me and hopefully that’s something I can use to channel into a coaching or mentoring role in the future. I’m a believer in sticking to your strengths and cricket is my strength,” he said. IANSlast_img read more

Stanford ends soccer’s unbeaten streak

first_img“In every position of the field they’ve got quality,” McAlpine said of the Cardinal. “They have  a chemistry about them that’s very good and when you have that is difficult to break down and difficult to deal with.”  Although the final score indicated a close game, Stanford dominated statistically throughout the match. The Trojans had trouble dealing with Macario as sophomore goalkeeper Anna Smith faced 26 shots and was forced to make eight saves in the game. Sophomore forward Penelope Hocking fights with a Stanford defender for the ball in USC’s loss at McAlister Field Saturday. (Yannick Peterhans | Daily Trojan) The No. 3 USC women’s soccer team fell to No. 2 Stanford Saturday at home in a tight 3-2 battle for its first loss of the season. The Trojans are now 7-1-1 on the year.  The Trojans also notched 20 fouls while Stanford had only 10, and USC also received three yellow cards in the second half. Meanwhile, the Trojan offense only got off six shots — their lowest total of the year — with only three shots on goal.   The loss will set USC back in the hunt for its first outright Pac-12 title, while Stanford will have a headstart in taking the conference crown for the fifth year in a row.  The goal put McKeown back at the top of USC’s season leaderboard, but her position alone there was short-lived. Hocking tallied a goal of her own off a pass from graduate defender Natalie Ward just two minutes later to tie her teammate with 8 goals. The bright spot for the Trojans, as has often been the case, was the continued success of Hocking and McKeown. Their two scores in the first half were vital in keeping USC in the game, but they were unable to pull another one out of the bag during the second half.   “It’s an opportunity for us to really check ourselves … and figuring out how to be a little bit better in terms of the small moments in the game that could’ve changed the game,” McAlpine said. “We played a little bit frantically.”center_img For Stanford, the win is proof that its loss to unranked Pepperdine was a fluke and that it is still the powerhouse it was to start out the season. As for USC, the team is likely to drop a few spots in the rankings, and each Pac-12 matchup from now on will carry extra significance because it can’t afford to lose many more games.   However, after Hocking’s goal USC was stymied by Stanford’s defense for the rest of the game — and the Trojans’ 2-1 lead quickly evaporated. Macario scored the equalizer after dribbling through USC’s defense four minutes later. She notched the eventual game winner to close out the first half on a shot that bounced off the left post and in.  “I think both teams were a little fatigued by the time the game ended,” said head coach Keidane McAlpine of the dropoff in action during the second half.   USC tied it up just six minutes later thanks to the partnership of junior forward Tara McKeown and sophomore forward Penelope Hocking, which the Trojans have relied on all season. Hocking slid the ball in perfect position for McKeown to fire it into the back of the net off one touch. The second half was like a whole new game, and the scoring was over.  All of the scoring was concentrated in the first half of the match. The Cardinal struck first after junior forward Madison Haley headed in a long free kick by junior forward Catarina Macario.  USC will now play two more tough Pac-12 opponents as it travels to Arizona to play Arizona State Thursday and Arizona three days later. Both teams are quietly having solid seasons, and those games will be must-wins for the Trojans if they want to keep their Pac-12 hopes in strong position.last_img read more
