College football: La. Tech falls to Western Kentucky, finishes regular season 7-5

first_imgLouisiana Tech Sports InformationRUSTON — For the second straight game, Louisiana Tech’s inability to score in the red zone cost the Bulldogs in the win-loss column as WKU defeated Tech 30-15 Saturday afternoon at Joe Aillet Stadium.WKU (3-9) rode the momentum of a quick start the saw the Hilltoppers jump out to a 23-0 first half lead and hold on for the victory. Tech (7-5) ends the regular season with back-to-back losses and will now wait for the bowl announcement next weekend.“When you go into senior day, the one thing that you’re really trying to do is sending your seniors out the right way. We certainly didn’t do that today,” Tech coach Skip Holtz said. “I think we saved our worst for the end of the season. I felt like we played very uninspired football early in this football game. I don’t think we had a lot of passion. We didn’t have a lot of energy. “I wish I could put my finger exactly what it was today. I did not see it coming. I did not feel it coming. We felt like we did everything we could to prepare for the early start. At the end of the day they wanted this game more than we did. I thought they outplayed, outcoached and out-executed us.“But, ultimately, at the end of the day, to get this football team ready to go play, is my job as head football coach. I do not feel like we went out and played very inspired football especially in the first half. We just couldn’t get off the field, and they were making the plays that they needed to stay on the field.”Similar to last week’s road loss at Southern Miss, Louisiana Tech had numerous opportunities to score in the red zone. The Bulldogs drove inside the WKU 20-yard line three times, including twice inside the 5-yard line, in the second half but Tech managed only three points out of those opportunities. Two other drives inside the WKU side of the field resulted in missed field goals.Playing without wide receivers Teddy Veal and Rashid Bonnette, the Bulldogs turned to Adrian Hardy (9 catches, 125 yards) and Alfred Smith (8-105) as starting quarterback J’Mar Smith completed 24-of-44 passes for 280 yards and one interception.The interception came on Smith’s first pass attempt of the game and with the Bulldogs already trailing 7-0. WKU would capitalize, scoring its second TD of the opening quarter and extending the lead to 14-0.Early in the second quarter with Tech deep in its own side of the field, Smith was sacked in the end zone for a safety and a 16-0 Hilltoppers lead. Just 70 seconds later, WKU scored its third TD of the game and a 23-0 lead.Tech finally got on the board late in the second quarter. After an Amik Robertson interception set the Bulldogs up in WKU territory, the Bulldogs struck paydirt on a 19-yard run by Israel Tucker with 1:43 to play in the half. Bailey Hale’s extra point made the score 23-7.After forcing WKU to punt with less than a minute to play in the second quarter, the Bulldogs blocked the punt towards the Hilltopper end zone. After a scramble for the ball around the goal line, the ball was knocked through the end zone for a safety.Tech scored one last time in the half following the free kick. Hale connected on a 33-yard field goal on the last play of the second quarter, following a 48-yard drive on five plays. WKU led 23-12 at the half.The Bulldogs opened the third quarter with a promising drive. Tech started on its own 25 yard line and drove to a first and goal on the WKU 4-yard line. However, three plays failed to reach the endzone and Hale came on for a 20-yard field goal, cutting the deficit to 23-15.After the Bulldogs defense forced a punt, Tech once again drove deep into WKU territory. A first down and goal on the WKU five eventually found Tech facing a fourth down and goal from the 1-yard line. However, Kam McKnight got stuffed on a run up the middle turning the ball back over to WKU.On the Bulldogs third possession of the third quarter, Tech once again drove inside the WKU side of the field before stalling. Hale’s 50-yard field goal missed wide right and WKU maintained its 23-15 lead.WKU scored its lone points of the second half following a turnover on downs by the Bulldogs with just over four minutes remaining. D’Andre Ferby ran off right tackle for a 36-yard TD, sealing the victory for WKU.Senior defensive end Jaylon Ferguson recorded eight tackles in the game, including a half of a sack and two tackles for loss. Ferguson now has 42-5 career sacks, only 1.5 shy of the NCAA career record by Terrell Suggs.The Tech defense held WKU to under 300 yards of total offense in the game while the Bulldogs recorded 380.Perfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndoTheTopFiveVPNThe Secret Netflix Doesn’t Want You To Know To Unblock RestrictionsTheTopFiveVPN|SponsoredSponsoredUndoAspireAbove.comRemember Abby from NCIS?

Ricciardo wins in Monaco

first_img(REUTERS) – DANIEL Ricciardo brought back memories of Formula One great, Michael Schumacher in his prime on Sunday as the Australian nursed a wounded Red Bull to Monaco Grand Prix victory in the team’s 250th race.Winning from pole position for the first time in his career, Ricciardo drove for nearly two thirds of the race — some 50 laps — with a car down on power due to problems that emerged on lap 28.Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel, last year’s race winner, finished second — easing off towards the finish to save the tyres — to cut Lewis Hamilton’s overall lead to 14 points after six of 21 rounds.Hamilton, the reigning world champion, was third for Mercedes.“You have done an amazing job today,” team boss Christian Horner said after Ricciardo took the chequered flag 7.3 seconds clear of Vettel for his second win of the season and seventh of his career.“That is right up there with what Schumacher did in 1995 and this is payback for 2016.”Ricciardo’s only previous pole had been in Monaco two years ago, when he lost out to Hamilton on strategy and finished runner-up. Schumacher won in Belgium in 1995 with a famously defensive drive on dry tyres in the wet.“I had half the power it seemed and I felt like it was going to come to a stop,” said Ricciardo. “For a few seconds I just wanted to close my eyes and start crying.”LOSS OF POWERRicciardo had made a clean start and, controlling the race, looked as much of a nailed-on certainty for victory as ever exists on Monaco’s treacherous metal-fenced streets.And then he reported a loss of power.“OK mate, we can see what’s going on,” his race engineer replied after a pause. “You just need to keep it smooth, keep focussed.”“Will it get better?” enquired the Australian. “Negative,” came the reply.last_img read more

Neymar treble inspires PSG to 6-1 rout of Red Star

first_imgPARIS, France (Reuters) – Paris St Germain got their Champions League campaign back on track with a 6-1 home rout of Serbian side Red Star Belgrade yesterday as Brazil forward Neymar lit up a lop-sided Group C clash with a hat-trick.Angel Di Maria, Edinson Cavani and France World Cup winner Kylian Mbappe added a goal each as the French champions ripped into 1991 European Cup winners Red Star, who were spared a heavier defeat by goalkeeper Milan Borjan.The result left PSG on three points from two games after their opening 3-2 defeat by Liverpool, who visit Napoli in the group’s 1900 GMT kick-off. Napoli were held to a surprise 0-0 draw at Red Star in their opening match. The outcome was also Red Star’s heaviest defeat in Europe, ending their 38-match unbeaten run in all competitions stretching back to last season.Despite the obvious gulf in class, PSG coach Thomas Tuchel praised his team for keeping up a high tempo which barely allowed the visitors to get out of their own half and singled out the outstanding Neymar.“We’ve improved our intensity in every game and you saw that tonight,” Tuchel told a news conference. “Neymar is one of the best players in Europe. We have several of the best in our team – not just Neymar. We’ve won lots of games because we have the best players, but also because we were the best team. That’s very important.”It was one-way traffic from the start as the home side raced into a 2-0 lead with two goals in two minutes as Neymar curled a delightful free kick past Borjan in the 20th minute before he converted a fine run and pass by Mbappe. Cavani made it 3-0 with a deflected shot from inside the penalty area in the 37th minute before Di Maria added a fourth from close range after Thomas Meunier floated in a superb pass with the outside of his foot.In-between the goals and early in the second half, Borjan pulled off a string of superb saves to deny Neymar and Mbappe on multiple occasions as PSG carved open Red Star’s defence at will, with Mbappe also guilty of some sloppy finishing.Mbappe finally found the back of the net in the 70th minute after a dazzling move involving Neymar and Juan Bernat left the 19-year-old with a simple tap in from six metres. Red Star, playing in the competition’s group stages for the first time, scored their maiden goal on the big stage when midfielder Marko Marin buried a shot from 12 metres into the top corner in his team’s first purposeful move.Borjan could only offer a wry smile when Neymar put the icing on the cake of a brilliant individual performance, as he unleashed another breathtaking free kick from 30 metres in the 81st minute before he was substituted.Cavani had the ball in the back of the net again shortly afterwards but the goal was disallowed for a marginal offside, as PSG kept their feet on the pedal until the final whistle.last_img read more

‘As seems currently probable’ – Expectation is Newcastle ‘will not redeem’…

first_imgTo do so, they would need to pay around £20m, and it’s fair to say the St James’ Park side were hoping to get more than five games out of him before making a decision.Unfortunately for all involved, the Covid-19 outbreak has put the season on hold for the time being, and with just a limited amount of performances to go by, it seems Newcastle might be reluctant to commit a lot of money towards the Austria international.That is, in essence, what Calciomercato are saying, reporting it ‘seems currently probable’ that the Magpies ‘will not redeem Lazaro’, meaning he would return to Inter in the summer.Embed from Getty ImagesIf previous reports from Italy are to go by, that won’t be a problem for the wing-back, who has allegedly made it an objective to break through with the Serie A side, even if Antonio Conte isn’t exactly keen to use him.Then again, Inter also don’t seem too fussed, as he apparently has a ‘big market’ in Germany following his stint with Hertha BSC.It’s still all speculation for the time being, but it would be surprising to see Newcastle commit such an amount after five games, especially if the season were to never resume.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this City-Building Game is a Must-Have.
