“It’s always hard watching your teammates go out there and lose,” Storley said, “but I knew I needed to go out and score as many points as possible to get our team back in the hunt.”Kevin Steinhaus kept the momentum going at 184, and Scott Schiller’s major decision at 197 brought the Gophers within two points before Nelson’s loss ended the comeback attempt.Gophers dominate SpartansThe Gophers’ loss Sunday came two days after a dominant win over Michigan State (5-6, 0-3 Big Ten) in East Lansing, Mich., on Friday.Minnesota pounced on the Spartans from the get-go and won 35-3.The Gophers’ only loss of the day came in the 141-pound match, in which Josh Shupe wrestled for the Gophers in place of No. 5 Chris Dardanes.“It was a little disappointing to miss out on the shutout, but Shupe came in and wrestled a great match,” Eggum said after the match Friday. “He fought very hard.”Shupe replaced Dardanes again Sunday, but Dardanes is expected to return to the lineup for the rivalry dual at Iowa next weekend, Eggum said.Steinhaus and Nelson each added notches to their belts with wins over nationally ranked opponents Friday.Steinhaus won via tech fall over John Rizqallah, who is currently ranked No. 19 in the nation, and Nelson continued his campaign for a third consecutive national championship with a win over No. 9 Mike McClure.While the Gophers dominated Michigan State, their loss to Michigan serves as a wake-up call before they travel to Iowa City, Iowa.“We have a lot to prove,” Storley said. Minnesota loses its first dual of the seasonAn overtime win for No. 1 Adam Coon over No. 2 Tony Nelson stopped the Gophers’ comeback against Michigan. Jared ChristensenJanuary 21, 2014Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintNo. 2 Minnesota split a pair of duals on its road trip to Michigan over the weekend.The Gophers fell to No. 19 Michigan 19-14 on Sunday afternoon, just two days after they dominated Michigan State 35-3.The Gophers (7-1, 4-1 Big Ten) fell behind early Sunday after losing five of the first six matches against Michigan (7-2, 3-0 Big Ten), but they won three straight matches down the stretch to pull within two points heading into the heavyweight bout.Gophers head assistant coach Brandon Eggum said he was confident in his upper weights despite the early deficit in thedual.“It’s not the first time those guys have been put in that situation,” he said, “and those upper weights have always done a good job, especially in high-pressure situations.”It all came down to the heavyweight match that pitted No. 1 Adam Coon against two-time defending NCAA heavyweight champion Tony Nelson.And like the rest of the dual, that match had no shortage of drama. Coon and Nelson wrestled to a 1-1 stalemate through three rounds, and the match went into overtime.But one extra frame wasn’t enough, nor was two.After three rounds of overtime, a visibly exhausted Coon managed the first takedown of the match and came out of the sudden-death round with a 4-2 win.The match sealed the upset for the Wolverines and handed the Gophers their first dual loss of the season.The Wolverines were the aggressors early and jumped out to an early lead, due in part to upset wins by Eric Grajales at 149 pounds and Brian Murphy at 157.But Logan Storley’s major-decision win at 174 energized the Gophers’ bench and shifted the momentum in their favor.

Manchester United Alexis finally blossoming into a Swan in breakout Man Utd performance Tom Maston Last updated 1 year ago 00:21 4/1/18 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(2) Getty Manchester United Premier League Manchester United v Swansea City Swansea City A. Sánchez Opinion The January signing from Arsenal scored one and laid on the other as Jose Mourinho finally found a system for the Chilean to thrive in Alexis Sanchez, mouth agape and sliding on his knees towards the corner flag is a sight Premier League fans are well used to by now. And yet when the Chilean set off on his trademark celebration 20 minutes into Manchester United’s routine 2-0 win over Swansea it felt like the moment he had truly arrived at Old Trafford.Since signing from Arsenal in January, Alexis has struggled for consistency – albeit in a team that has rarely played to his strengths. His only previous goal came after Huddersfield goalkeeper Jonas Lossl parried a weak penalty back into his path. So patchy was his form he was benched for the FA Cup tie against Brighton prior to the international break.But having been reintroduced to the starting XI and deployed on the left-hand side of an attacking trio behind central striker Romelu Lukaku he began to thrive, drifting inside to lay on the opening goal for the Belgian forward, who netted for the 100th time in the Premier League via Alfie Mawson’s knee.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Quarter of an hour later it was Alexis himself on the scoresheet, latching onto Jesse Lingard’s through-ball to slot into the bottom corner without breaking stride. It was noticeable how United’s players were quick to acknowledge Paul Pogba’s part in the goal – a routine tackle at the heart of midfield – but in truth the goal was all about Alexis and his trusty sidekick, Lingard.Jose Mourinho this week refuted claims he would need to buy a striker during the summer transfer window given the wealth of attacking talent available to him – even after Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s departure to LA Galaxy – a point that was hammered home in a much more fluid attacking performance than United fans have been used to in recent months.Alexis seemed far more at home on the left than he has done when part of a 4-3-3, and with Lingard and Juan Mata willing to drop deeper to do his defensive work for him he maintained his energy levels despite another international break when he played both matches for Chile.Quite what that means for Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial is a conundrum Mourinho needs to solve. Both precocious youngsters have been described as undroppable at times this term, and yet if United have finally found an attacking quartet that they can rely on their opportunities are likely to remain limited.Behind Alexis, all eyes were expected to be on Pogba as he too returned from both the literal and metaphorical cold that gripped the Theatre of Dreams during the Brighton clash.Sitting deep alongside Nemanja Matic, there was a clear show of support for Pogba from his team-mates on Saturday. They pointed their fingers at him to acknowledge his challenge in the build-up to Alexis’ goal, demonstrating the love everyone has for the Frenchman following the recent soap opera surrounding Mourinho’s treatment of him.In truth, though, Pogba was largely quiet again, but he should really have ended the afternoon with an assist as both Mata and Lukaku failed to convert the midfielder’s floated crosses from close-range. ‘Industrious’ is not a word usually related with Pogba, but with the likes of Alexis firing ahead of him he may have to learn to settle for a supporting role for the remainder of the campaign.Alexis’s afternoon ended after 75 minutes, replaced by Rashford with the job done. Mourinho’s pride at beating Pep Guardiola to the Chilean’s signature will only be justified if he can coax more match-winning performances out of his new asset. After an ugly start, the signs are finally there that Alexis is beginning to blossom into a swan. Check out Goal’s Premier League 2019-20 fantasy football podcast for game tips, debate and rivalries.

The company retains additional options, in its favor, to further extend both charters through 2020.“Our success entering into this new charter at a higher rate highlights the firming fundamentals for mid-size and smaller containerships. Furthermore, through both this new charter and the exercise of two options at attractive rates, we are pleased to have further expanded our contracted revenue backlog and consolidated our relationship with the CMA CGM group,” Ian Webber, Chief Executive Officer of Global Ship Lease, said.Earlier this month, CMA CGM decided to charter four boxships from Poseidon Containers. Poseidon Containers recently announced a merger with GSL, aiming at creating a containership charter owner focused on mid-sized and smaller vessels.As of September 30, 2018, Global Ship Lease owned 19 vessels with a total capacity of 85,136 TEU and an average age, weighted by TEU capacity, of 13.7 years. All 19 vessels are fixed on time charters, 17 of which are with CMA CGM.
