Paul & Sons 15-over final set for tomorrow

first_img… Rems, Enmore aiming for consecutive titlesBy Frederick HalleyTORONTO, Canada – After carting off last weekend’s Caribbean Sensation/Nirad Lall-sponsored 10/10 Division One championship, Rems will be aiming to make it two straight titles when they clash with Mercenary in the Paul & Sons-sponsored 15-over final tomorrow at the Ashtonbee number two ground.Meanwhile, the Division Two final features Enmore and Carr Tec at the Ashtonbee number one ground in what is a repeat of last Saturday’s 10/10 final, with the latter not only endeavouring to turn the tables on their opponents but also reversing last year’s finish when they had to settle for the runners-up spot to Good Success.Incidentally, both of last year’s winners – Sunshine in Division One and Good Success in Division Two – are out of contention for varying reasons, Sunshine opting to pull out of the league and Good Success losing to Carr Tec in the semi-final.On the Division One consolation final Rebels will trye to take home another winners trophy when they battle with last week’s losing championship finalists GT Bannas, on Ashtonbee Reservoir number one while Bacchus Ruff Ryders and Ramblers square off at Ashtonbee Reservoir number two.While Rems made light work of GT Bannas in the 10/10 final, the showdown with Mercenary is expected to be far fiercer and a keener contest is definitely on the cards.It will be recalled that Rems were responsible for Mercenary’s exit from the 10/10 tournament at the semi-final stage and also stopped them in their tracks in the regular season (20 overs) tournament, giving them somewhat of an added momentum entering tomorrow’s final.Terry MathuraRems will also be hoping that their top-order which includes the likes of Chien Gittens, Richard Dias, Krishna Deosaran and Ian ‘Russian’ Baldeo, hit form since apart from Surujpaul Deosaran, who hit a top score of 29 last weekend, the rest of the batting failed to get going.Their bowlers, led by Yoodhanlall Sukhlall, were simply superb against GT Bannas and will be looking to replicate those performances.Regular season leaders Mercenary had high hopes of making a clean sweep of the Division One titles but their expectations have already been shattered. Apart from wanting to “settle the score” with their opponents, bragging rights are also up for grabs in this highly anticipated contest.Skipper Looknauth Ramsuchit is extremely confident that Mercenary will come out on top. Apart from the captain’s contribution, the batting hinges around Shauan Deonandand, Munniram Karran, Yadram Bogh and all-rounders Aftab Shamsudeen and Avinash Sookdeo. Support will also come from bowlers Rabindra Diaram and Bolanauth Sukhu.The Division Two final, featuring Enmore and Carr Tec, is expected to be brimful of interest. Undoubtedly, Carr Tec were the favourites to win last week’s 10-over contest after playing unbeaten in both the regular and knockout tournaments. However, they were brought down to earth by a spectacular performance from Enmore who outduel them in all facets of the game.Led by fine innings from man-of-the-match Abdool Azeez and former Guyana youth player Steve Ramdass, Enmore were by far the better team on the day and fully deserved their triumph.Carr Tec will once again be pinning their hopes on former Guyana youth batsman Ravendra Mandolall, who was a ‘no-show” as far as getting among the runs last week. A surprising element in Carr Tec’s play last week was the experienced Terry Mathura who bowled only one over, in which he conceded nine runs and claimed two wickets.Following the conclusion of the 15-over final, the battle will resume for regular-season (20 overs) supremacy.last_img read more

Double reverse: Limegrover, Kill working to revamp Minnesota offense

first_img Published on September 20, 2012 at 3:34 am Contact Phil: | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+ Southern Illinois’ 80-yard, beautifully orchestrated game-winning drive against Western Illinois on Oct. 5, 2002, did more for two men standing on the sideline than it did for the program.The drive didn’t just end the Salukis’ 18-game losing streak to the Leathernecks, which dated back to 1983. The defining victory established the names of offensive coordinator Matt Limegrover and head coach Jerry Kill.“It was one of those drives where every play call was right and they were on the right page together,” said Mike Fritzler,  a Southern Illinois offensive lineman from 2001 to 2002. “It was a huge wall that was knocked down for Southern Illinois. And it was a springboard for Jerry and Matt.”Ten years later, the Salukis’ glorious march down the field symbolizes what Limegrover and Kill have perfected throughout their 14 years of coaching at each other’s side: cooperation and turning around football programs. After starting together at Division-II Emporia State (Kansas) in 1999, Limegrover and Kill revitalized the Southern Illinois and Northern Illinois programs and now strive to make Minnesota their third such project.The Gophers finished 2011 last in the Big Ten in scoring with 18.4 points per game and in yards per game with 310.3. Through three games this season, Minnesota’s 34 points per game puts it at sixth in the conference, and the Gophers’ 429 yards is good for fifth.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTurning offenses around has been Limegrover’s expertise throughout his career.Limegrover coached the offensive line at Emporia State for the 1999 and 2000 seasons. When Kill left the Division-II ranks for Southern Illinois, he brought most of his staff with him, including Limegrover.This time, though, Limegrover would have the added responsibility of offensive coordinator.“He cares about us as assistants, he’s hard on us, but he also wants to make sure that we’re getting the most out of the kids and I appreciate that,” Limegrover said via Minnesota athletic communications. “He’s made me a much better coach over the last 14 years for sure.”Fritzler was a member of Kill and Limegrover’s first recruiting class at Southern Illinois. He joined a team that had finished 3-8 the season before.“That was a terrible program,” Fritzler said. “I was coming from Butler County Junior College, where we won a national championship. And I walked into one of the worst athletic programs in the country at the time in SIU.”In Kill’s first season at the helm, the team found a way to regress and finished 1-10. Limegrover’s offense finished at the bottom of the Missouri Valley Conference in touchdowns and points per game.The offensive coordinator saved his job and possibly his career when he found out about quarterback Joel Sambursky, from Liberty, Mo. Sambursky, though, had already committed to Northwest Missouri.But that didn’t stop Limegrover.“He ended up basically forcing his way on my front porch,” Sambursky said. “He said ‘I want to talk to you. We want you to come out here and give it a look.’ He was incredibly persistent.”With Sambursky under center for the 2002 campaign, the team immediately saw improvement. The Salukis scored more than 75 points in each of their first two victories and then upset No. 8 Western Illinois, 54-52, on a fourth-quarter touchdown pass from Sambursky to receiver Brandon Robinson as time expired.Sambursky said the SIU offense turned around so quickly because the coaches stressed the consistent execution of the “little things.”“For me, it was footwork,” the former quarterback said. “It was everything from where my first step was to just making a handoff or how to make a proper juke step. … But the little things are what dictate a football game.”The Saluki offense was one of the best in the Missouri Valley Conference for the next six seasons. SIU averaged just 15.2 points per game in Kill and Limegrover’s first season, but averaged as many as 42.6 points per game during their tenure in Carbondale.Braden Jones transferred to Southern Illinoisin 2005 from Northwestern and was one of the Salukis’ most consistent producers. He said Limegrover’s work ethic toward creating an effective game plan deserved credit for the team’s offensive outbursts.“He is meticulous,” Jones said. “I think he lives and breathes football. He is always up on the offense watching film and always coming up with new ideas.”Sambursky recalled hearing stories from film sessions in which Limegrover would rewind the same play 15 times because everything regarding the offensive line needed to be flawless. The former quarterback said his coordinator sees the game of football as “a chess match.”Sambursky, who graduated in 2005, holds the SIU career records for touchdown passes, completion percentage and most rushing yards by a quarterback. It wouldn’t have been possible without the offensive coordinator who personally recruited the quarterback.“I owe a lot to Matt Limegrover,” Sambursky said. “He gave me a shot and we got things turned around.”Prior to the start of the 2008 season, Northern Illinois hired Kill to replace Joe Novak. Like he typically did, Kill brought the majority of his coaching staff with him.Again, Limegrover took over the reins of an offense that was at the bottom of a conference. The 2007 Huskies’ unit scored 25 touchdowns and scored 19.1 points per game, both fewer than any other team in the Mid-American Conference.By the time Kill and Limegrover left Northern Illinois, it was one of the top offenses in the nation, and not just in the MAC. In 2010, the Huskies averaged 37.8 points per game, good for 13th in the country. The team finished third nationally in rushing touchdowns and seventh in rushing yardage.“One of the things about our offense is that we’re not going to try to fit square pegs into round holes. There’s a lot of different ways we can go with the offense, depending on our personnel,” Limegrover said. “So the biggest thing is just who we have at our disposal. The kind of athletes we have will really drive the offense we’ll have from year to year.”Justin Kramer, a former Saluki offensive lineman from 2002 to 2005, said Kill’s system, not just Limegrover’s offensive prowess, is a reason these programs have improved so drastically.“At any time you get a collective whole buying into one vision and one goal, I think success is going to happen early for you,” Kramer said. “I’m not shocked one bit they turned it around. Not one bit.”Kramer said he isn’t surprised by Minnesota’s 3-0 start this season. Fritzler said it’s only a matter of time before the Gophers’ football program takes off, since the offense’s style is similar to what Limegrover directed at Southern Illinois.“It keeps a defense honest,” Fritzler said. “It may not be loaded with talent, but it gives the offense a chance. They’ll adapt a system to the talent they have.”Minnesota running back Donnell Kirkwood also believes that the Gophers will be Limegrover and Kill’s next successful masterpiece.“We’re real close,” the redshirt sophomore said. “We made a big jump to this year from last year. We can do anything on any down, and that’s what makes this offense so good.”It remains to be seen what Kill and Limegrover can accomplish with a Minnesota team that competes in a challenging Big Ten conference.But the results from a bond between two inseparable and intelligent men who have made their careers off turning around football programs couldn’t be clearer.“I think it says a lot about loyalty,” Kramer said. “That’s something you don’t see a lot in the profession anymore. With that loyalty comes consistency, and anytime you can create consistency in a program, you have a great chance to be successful.” Commentslast_img read more

Kobe Bryant say no current teammate is ready to carry the Lakers following 101-88 loss to Wizards

first_imgThe noise became louder and louder for reasons that had nothing to do with what the Lakers did on the court. Instead, it involved the reality that Kobe Bryant did not log 48 minutes in an otherwise awful game.“We want Kobe,” became the constant backdrop during the Lakers’ 101-88 loss to the Washington Wizards on Sunday at Staples Center. If only the Lakers could have played with as much force, or “zip” as Lakers coach Byron Scott called it.“I even tell the guys it’s like a broken record, and we talk about the same thing over and over again,” Scott said. “We talk about the same things over and over again. I want to sometimes just tape myself and just play it. Let me just save my breath and just tape it.”Are the players listening? “I feel they’re hearing it. They’re just not applying it,” Scott said. “It’s either not applying it or they can’t apply it. I’m just going to keep preaching it to them until they get it.”The Lakers (15-58) did not get it against the Wizards (36-37).The Lakers allowed Washington to post 52 points in the paint while John Wall (22), Martin Gortat (16), JJ Hickson (14), Otto Porter Jr (14) and Ramon Sessions (11) to crack double figures. The Lakers’ ball movement disappeared again as they shot 37.9 percent from the field, while Jordan Clarkson scored only two points on a 1-of-7 clip.“I have to figure out a way to be engaged in the game and impact it in terms of rebounding, defensively making steals and making plays for my teammmates,” Clarkson said. “It’s something I have to figure out.”The Lakers only have nine games left. Then, Bryant will end a storied 20-year NBA career that apparently involved enjoying the banter with the fourth estate. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img “I’ve done a lot of interviews here standing in front of this locker,” said Bryant, mindful it’s likely the last one as media crowds increase for his last games. “The one I’ll always remember is the night I ruptured my Achilles. I’ll miss standing here and watching you guys elbow each other.”Bryant hardly sounded as complimentary on whether his current teammates have what it takes to lead the Lakers franchise once he leaves.“No. If you have to ask that question, the answer is already there,” Bryant said. “Torches never get passed. You have to earn that.” Scott said that “it showed some guts” that Lakers guard D’Angelo Russell played a mere two days after suffering a moderate sprain in his right ankle. Russell did not receive clearance until going through layup lines 20 minutes before tip. But after making his first three shots, Russell finished with 22 points albeit on a 8-of-20 clip in 32 minutes. A game after recording his first career triple double, Julius Randle’s 14 points, seven rebounds and one assist that mostly happened when the game was out of reach. Scott repeated in general terms it takes young players “two to four years” before showing their full potential.“It’s tough, because everybody is different,” Bryant said. “Everybody is different. It manifests itself in different ways. I think at the core of us all, though, it’s that kind of competitive drive and the obsession about the game.” And then there was Bryant, who had 17 points on a 6 of 15 clip in his fourth consecutive game while nursing soreness in his right shoulder. That recent attendance spike led Bryant to offer some optimism on if he will play in all of the Lakers’ nine remaining games.“Yes,” Bryant said, “unless something drastic happens, God forbid.”The fans that endlessly pleaded for Bryant to stay in the game will cheer. But that did not convince Scott to play Bryant in the fourth quarter, both mindful of the deficit and the need to preserve Bryant for Monday’s game in Utah.“At the time they’re yelling it, we’re down 20 points. You really think I’m going to put him back in with six, seven minutes left and we’re down 20 points?” Scott said. “I wouldn’t fathom putting him in at that particular time.”last_img read more
