first_imgBy Anthony Alandt CHAGRIN FALLS, OHIO – The Kenston Bombers won a hard-fought hockey match in overtime 2-1 against the Strongsville Mustangs Sunday evening. The two teams faced off for the second time in as many days, as Strongsville pulled out the 4-2 win Saturday night over the Bombers.Strongsville jumped out to an early 1-0 lead after a goal by sophomore forward Kyle Czworkowski a little more than two minutes into the game. Kenston was unable to counter with a goal of their own, but maintained possession of the puck throughout the majority of the first 15 minutes and made the Mustang defense work.From the initial puck drop to the buzzer signaling the end of the first period, the Bombers kept their foot firmly on the gas pedal. Kenston’s aggressive approach in the first period was outmatched by senior goalie Luke Bell, who kept Kenston scoreless and amassed 12 saves.When the Mustangs were able to flip possession, they took advantage of their opportunities and shot a flurry of times at Kenston goalie Jason Hildebran, who saved 20 of the 21 shots at him.Junior Valentino Carriero was able to tie up the game for the Bombers at 1 after 1:33 of play in the second period off an assist from senior Tanner Mulhern. Strongsville had many more attempts to score in the second period, but Hildebran staved off every chance with impeccable blocking and saves. Both power play opportunities that came in the second period were unable to be capitalized on, as neither squad could muster a goal while it was 5 on 4. Bell, the goalie for Strongsville, finished by saving 27 of 29 shots on goal.Regulation ended with the score at 1-1 after a very defensive-heavy third period. Both the Mustangs and the Bombers had trouble getting anything to materialize and when they found some path to the goal, neither team was able to slip one by the goalies.With all the fans in attendance on their feet and the clock ticking down towards 4 minutes in the overtime, Carriero came through with his second goal of the game, winning it for the Bombers. Carriero picked up his 32nd and 33rd goal of the season, while Mulhern added his 9th assist of the year.Kenston remains atop the Red Central division as they improve to 6-1 in league play. They face off next at Rocky River on Friday. Strongsville falls to 5-3 in league play and stay behind the Bombers in second place in the Red Central division.

The worst Cristiano Ronaldo since 2010-11

first_img His next test in La Liga will be against rivals Atletico, at the Vicente Calderon next weekend. Sport EN Cristiano Ronaldo did not score for Real Madrid in the 0-0 draw with Malaga and the Portuguese hasn’t found the net in four of the five La Liga games this season. He still has five goals, but all of them came in a 6-0 win over a limp Espanyol side at the Cornella El Prat.  Against Malaga he tried to score time and time again, but could not. His discontent at being unable to beat Kameni was tangible. He tried to score an incredible 14 times, without success.  27/09/2015center_img CEST Upd. at 14:17 Against Sporting, Granada, Athletic and Malaga he has been incapable of finding the net. His run reminds us of the 2010-11 season where he had his worst goalscoring start as a player of Madrid, scoring three times in six weeks of La Liga. last_img read more

Powered by Firework Vijay Shankar has been a polarising figure for the fans and critics alike after a series of sub-par performances. The all-rounder was slotted in the line-up after Shikhar Dhawan’s tournament came to a premature end owing to a hairline fracture. Advertisement Image Courtesy: Deccan ChronicleThe all-rounder’s World Cup journey has been off to a rough start. After bagging a wicket off his very first ball, things have gone only downhill for Shankar. The right-arm medium pacer is yet to deliver a solid outing in the crucial No.4 position for the Men In Blue. Shankar could only manage a couple of patchy innings’ against Afghanistan and West Indies.While many have voiced their opinion about replacing Shankar off the line-up with either Dinesh Karthik or Rishabh Pant, Kevin Pietersen is not one of them as he pleaded Virat Kohli and Ravi Shastri to back the 28-year-old in a tweet. He said:Advertisement “Dear Virat and Ravi (Shastri) — please don’t drop Vijay Shankar,” Pietersen said in a tweet on Saturday. “I think he’s coming into his own and would potentially win you tomorrow’s game.”Pietersen also voiced his concern about Pant being thrown away right into the World Cup mix. He added:Advertisement “Don’t think about Pant. He needs another three weeks preparation before I think he can get into your World Cup side.”Check out the tweet below:Read Also:  Advertisementlast_img read more
