Magpie links spur on Hammers

first_img Midfielder Mark Noble is once again expected to captain the Hammers with regular skipper, and another ex-Newcastle man, Kevin Nolan serving the last of a four-game ban. The 26-year-old Noble scored the second goal at Cardiff and believes everyone at the club is pulling together to make sure they survive in the Premier League. “At Cardiff, you could see from the way the lads worked, and with Kevin and James Collins travelling with us, that we’re all together,” he told the club’s official website. “The whole squad was happy for each other and that’s what you need when you’re in the position that we’re in. It was nice to get back on the scoresheet. I enjoy getting forward but obviously the position I play in means those opportunities are quite rare.” The returning Carroll, who played his first minutes of the season after appearing as a late substitute, set up the decisive goal and Noble is delighted to have the England striker back in action. “You could see in the pictures of the celebration that Andy was buzzing,” he added. “It was like he was holding a little boy – he just held me up with one arm and put the other arm in the air. It was a nice picture and nice for him to come back, set up a goal and be involved in a win. Hopefully we can have many more of them.” McDonald played for hometown club Newcastle at the start of his career whilst West Ham record signing Andy Carroll, who has returned to fitness in time to feature in the weekend’s Barclays Premier League clash, also began his footballing life at St James’ Park. Hammers’ boss Sam Allardyce had an eight-month spell in charge of Newcastle before being sacked in January 2008 and McDonald admits it is always nice to perform well against former employers. West Ham’s Newcastle connections will inspire them in search of a win at the Magpies’ expense on Saturday, according to assistant manager Neil McDonald. “If you played for a football club and you are then playing against them you want to get one over on them, don’t you?” he said. “I’m 48 now and I played for them in the 80s but I always want to get one over on Newcastle. “It is Andy’s hometown club of course but at the end of the day we have got another 10 players who will be involved in the game, will be wanting to beat Newcastle and everyone will be doing their best to do that.” After last weekend’s 2-0 win at Cardiff lifted West Ham out of the relegation zone, another three points against Newcastle would represent the first back-to-back league wins for Allardyce’s side since they returned to the top flight. Newcastle travel to Upton Park having lost their last four fixtures in all competitions and, although McDonald is targeting victory, he is adamant West Ham will not underestimate Alan Pardew’s side. “They’ve had a couple of bad results, but having said all of that they’re still in the top half of the league,” he said. “They’re still a very, very good team who’ve got some exciting, dangerous players. We’ve done our homework on them, we’ve got a game plan for them, we know their strengths and weaknesses and we have to exploit those weaknesses. “It goes without saying that it would be six points out of two games and that’s certainly what we’re trying to do.” Press Associationlast_img read more

Marcellus girls basketball tops Bishop Ludden, 71-63

first_imgSomehow, the great numbers and impressive victories put up by the Marcellus girls basketball team was not drawing notice outside of Central New York circles.Despite its 10-1 record and six-game win streak, the Mustangs were still not in the state Class B rankings, but still had a chance at another signature win when it took on state Class A no. 19-ranked Bishop Ludden last Friday night.Marcellus grabbed that victory, overcoming a fourth-quarter deficit with an all-out assault that led to a 71-63 victory over the Gaelic Knights.A strong second quarter had Ludden out in front, 37-30, by halftime, and it stayed that way until the final period, when the relentless Mustangs pressure led to a series of easy baskets on the other end.All told, Marcellus outscored the Gaelic Knights 28-14 in those last eight minutes, Sarah Fallon leading the way as she got 20 points. Hannah Durand and Katie MacLachlan each had 16 points, with Emma MacLachlan getting 10 points and Sam Wynne earning seven points.On Ludden’s side, Amarah Streiff put up 20 points, followed closely by Keiara Odune, who got 17 points. Lauren Petrie earned 13 points and Kaitlyn Kibling added nine points.Before this, Marcellus faced Chittenango last Tuesday and, just like it would against Ludden, displayed some late-game toughness in defeating the Bears 48-42.Leading 17-9 after one period, Marcellus could not put Chittenango away, instead seeing the margin disappear in the game’s middle stages.So they were tied 32-32 going to the fourth quarter, but here the Mustangs flourished, reclaiming the lead for good thanks to a well-balanced attack.Katie MacLachlan finished with 14 points, with Fallon earning 12 points. Wynne had nine points and Hannah Durand had eight points.Ludden had returned to action last Wednesday, against Syracuse Academy of Science, and broke its three-game skid by holding off the Atoms 47-43.A 14-6 start gave the Gaelic Knights a lead it would nurse through most of the game, eventually building it to 37-29 before SAS staged a late rally that fell just short.Streiff again led the way, earning 17 points. Petrie had 12 points, while Odume had nine points and Kibling had seven points.Westhill, who was 5-5 going into last week, had its own game against Chittenango on Thursday and, like Marcellus, proved successful against the Bears, claiming a 60-44 victory.Things were close until the Warriors outscored Chittenango 20-7 in the fourth quarter, Jenna Larrabee working inside for 23 points and Catherine Dadey sinking five 3-pointers on her way to 17 points. Tess Roesch had eight points and Erica Gangemi earned seven points.All of this followed last Monday’s 83-31 romp over Altmar-Parish-Williamstown, where all 10 Warriors players that saw action earned at least one field goal.Before an early exit, Larrabee gained 19 points, closely followed by Dadey, who had 16 points. Ellie Masterpole had 11 points and Erica Gangemi got 10 points as Tess Roesch had seven points.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Bishop Luddengirls basketballMarcellusWesthilllast_img read more

Baseball wins twice, loses once in Tony Gwynn Classic

first_imgJunior shortstop Ben Ramirez hit 3 of his 8 total RBIs this season in USC’s win over San Diego State Saturday. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan) USC will travel to face Cal State Fullerton before returning home to take on Keio University Tuesday and Wednesday. CSUF is 3-4 on the season despite having a historically strong program. On the other hand, Keio — a part of the Tokyo Big6 Baseball League that features six prominent baseball programs — will be traveling from Japan for an exhibition game. USC beat Seattle University 6-2, lost to Southern Illinois 3-1 and took down SDSU in a comeback 11-5 victory. The Trojans are now 4-2 early in the season. As for the Aztecs, sophomore pitcher Aaron Eden had a perfect first three innings before giving up a walk with two outs in the fourth. But it was only a matter of time before USC started its comeback. The Trojans put up 11 unanswered runs the rest of the game, including 2 in the seventh and 4 more in the ninth. For the Trojans, freshman center fielder Rhylan Thomas finished the game with three hits and 2 runs while junior shortstop Ben Ramirez finished with three RBIs. “I was actually pretty proud of them,” head coach Jason Gill said. “It was a long stretch. We didn’t hit well yesterday, and then the first five innings of the game today seemed to snowball into ‘Oh no, here we go again.’ It just takes one or two guys to break that open.” The game started off quickly for the Trojans as USC scored three runs in the first inning thanks to a 3-run home run from sophomore first baseman Clay Owens, who finished with 4 RBIs. Juniors righty Kyle Hurt and lefty John Beller combined to allow just one earned run on the night as the Trojans coasted to the victory. It was SDSU, however, which started the game off hot, scoring 5 runs in the first four innings. Redshirt sophomore pitcher Alex Cornwell lasted only 3.2 innings, giving up 3 earned runs on nine hits for the Trojans a week after pitching 5.2 innings of 2-run ball against Western Michigan. “[SDSU was] kinda pitching us backward, and to beat guys like that, you gotta use the whole field,” Gill said. “You can’t just sit up there and try to hit 500-foot home runs. What [Thomas and Ramirez] did was [they] went the other way with the baseball. And it paid off.”center_img Sophomore first baseman Clay Owens is hitting .421 on the season with 7 RBIs. Owens hit a clutch home run in USC’s win over Seattle Friday. (James Wolfe | Daily Trojan) The USC baseball team traveled to San Diego this past weekend to participate in the Tony Gwynn Classic at San Diego State. The Trojans took on another opponent they had not seen in more than 40 years when they played Southern Illinois Saturday. In USC’s second loss of the season, the Trojans could not find a way to get the bats going. There were still some bright spots for the Trojans, however. Junior pitcher Isaac Esqueda pitched 5.1 innings while allowing only 2 runs on six hits with three strikeouts, and Owens added two hits out of just four on the day for USC. USC took on Seattle Friday in the first game of the event. The Redhawks were an unfamiliar opponent for the Trojans, as USC entered Friday with just a 2-0 all-time head-to-head advantage.  In the final game of the Tony Gwynn Classic Sunday, USC took on a familiar opponent in SDSU. Having faced the Aztecs a total of 89 times, the Trojans got their 61st win against the Aztecs on a 5-run comeback win to cap off the weekend. “We gotta get on a little roll,” Gill said. “We have a tough matchup on Tuesday against Cal State Fullerton, and I know they just recently got ranked. So we got our hands full on Tuesday and that’s all we’re going to focus on.”last_img read more
