Carroll uncertain over future

first_img Carroll moved to Liverpool for £35 million as a replacement for Fernando Torres but the move never quite worked out, leading to a season-long loan at West Ham in the summer. The east Londoners have the option to make the deal permanent for an undisclosed fee, although reports this week suggest they will reduce their offer. Asked whether he would stay if West Ham put the right money on the table, Carroll said: “We will have to wait and see. It is obviously a great club and I do not see why not.” Press Association Carroll has also been linked with a move to former club Newcastle and the striker is not sure what the future holds past the end of the season. “I have just got to wait and see, really,” he said. “We’ll see what happens at the end of the season. Obviously I don’t know what is happening so we will just have to wait and see. “It has been great here and every minute has been fantastic. The lads have been great, the gaffer has been great and the fans are unbelievable.” Carroll netted his sixth West Ham goal on Saturday to earn a hard-fought point at Southampton. The England international saw his driven strike deflect in off Steven Davis, levelling just seven minutes after Gaston Ramirez had given Saints the lead. “It was a bit windy,” he said. “The ball was all over the place but we came here and got a result. In the first half I was getting blocked off and there was a few players around me. I was talking to the referee a bit but it was a difficult day to me. “With my goal, I just had to hit the target. Obviously it got a little bit of a deflection and went in, which sometimes happens. I have had a few injuries over the years and I am just getting over them now so it is good to get on a run of games and goals. “I had a few chances and I think we could have won the game in the end. We are disappointed not to but happy we got the point.” center_img Andy Carroll is open to joining West Ham permanently but admits to being unsure where his future lies.last_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
