Credit: Christopher Slack / Lantern PhotographerThe Ohio State men’s soccer team advanced to the Sweet 16 in front of a home crowd at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium on Sunday afternoon after defeating Dayton 4-3 in penalty kicks following a 1-1 double-overtime draw.“Sweet 16 sounds a lot better than round three,” OSU junior forward Danny Jensen said, referring to the round the Buckeyes are now advancing to. “I just hope we could keep this going whether it’s a trip to California or playing at the Jesse.”The Buckeyes moved to 13-6-3 after the game, while the Flyers ended their season 13-5-5.Jensen and senior goalkeeper Chris Froschauer played the role of hero in Sunday’s match.With the Buckeyes down a point, Jensen scored in the 72nd  minute to keep the home team’s hopes and dreams alive.“I was hoping we wouldn’t go down a goal because our record of being down a goal is not very good this year,” OSU coach John Bluem said. “We were able to manage because of a very nice goal by Danny to get back into the game.”The Buckeyes and the Flyers were forced into penalty kicks when the game remained at a 1-1 tie after a pair of overtime periods.Once there, Froschauer led the Scarlet and Gray to the victory with a total of two saves in the five-round penalty kick session.“You get to penalty kicks and you don’t know what’s going to happen,” Bluem said. “But we have a lot of faith and confidence in (Froschauer) that he’s going to come up with a save, and he did.”Despite advancing, the Buckeyes did not play at its best as Dayton took full advantage of OSU’s deficiencies.The Buckeyes and the Flyers battled it out in the first half, but neither team managed to score.The best looks of the half came from the Scarlet and Gray, with several different opportunities.Senior defender Liam Doyle took a penalty kick after freshman forward Abdi Mohamed was fouled in the box during the 6th minute, but Dayton junior goalkeeper Justin Saliba saved his shot.In the 30th minute, sophomore forward Marcus McCrary sent in a shot after Jensen forced a turnover but his ensuing shot was saved.In the second half, the Flyers came close to scoring a goal right out of the gate, but Froschauer came up with a save.However, just five minutes later Dayton senior defender/midfielder Alex Amankwah sent in a header to give the Flyers a 1-0 lead early in the second half.OSU kept a level head despite being down a point.Jensen scored his sixth goal of the season after getting loose with the ball and going into attack mode, sending in a shot from far out and tying the game to keep the Buckeyes’ hopes alive.“Something happened in the middle and fortunately the ball bounced over one of their last defender and I ran out at kind of an awkward angle,” Jensen said describing the goal. “But I actually had it in line because I was the opposition and I took it off my chest, and I knew if I hit a good shot and kept it below the crossbar it would probably go in.”Neither team scored for the rest of the second half, forcing the game to head into the extra sessions.In the second overtime, Dayton came close to scoring, but the ball hit of the crossbar and was cleared safely.Despite the look, both Dayton and OSU did not score, leading the game into penalty kicks with each team’s season hanging in the balance.Bluem said, given the competitive nature of the tournament, he had his team work on penalty kicks in the days leading up to the game in case it came down to that. OSU is no stranger to that situation, as last year it advanced past Akron in the first round of the tournament after a 15-round affair.“We practiced penalty kicks every day for the past week or so and we became a little bit more serious as we got closer and closer to this game,” Bluem said. “The five guys that stepped up today all had very good shots.”In the fifth round of penalty kicks, Froschauer made his second save of the shootout to seal the victory.“It honestly helped that (Dayton) went into (penalty kicks) Thursday night, so we knew where they were going with their first two shooters, but it went the opposite way,” Froschauer said. “From there I just tried to read the shooter more and go from there.”Overall, shots were 17-12 in favor of Dayton, while the Flyers also held a 7-6 lead in corner kicks.Froschauer ended with a total of seven saves against his former team, plus the two key stops in the third and fifth rounds of the penalty kicks.The Buckeyes are set to travel to Palo Alto, California, to take on eighth-seeded Stanford (15-2-2) after the Cardinal defeated Santa Clara 3-1 on Sunday. The third-round matchup is scheduled to take place on either Nov. 28 or Nov. 29. Kickoff time has yet to be announced. Update, Nov. 22, 10:15 p.m – This post has been updated to reflect the outcome of the second-round game between Stanford and Santa Clara. read more

Simeone is happy with Morata even after defeat

first_imgAtletico Madrid was defeated by Real Betis 1-0 today in Spanish La Liga tournament Sunday action.A single goal by Real Betis’ Sergio Canales was enough to defeat Atletico Madrid in the Spanish La Liga tournament.With this, the Colchoneros are now six points behind leaders.Atletico keeps the second position but is just now five points ahead of Real Madrid who is yet to play this Matchday.Los Merengues will play against Alaves in a few minutes to close today’s fixture.Atletico has now 12 wins in 22 matches, eight draws, and only two defeats.And for manager Diego Simeone, the only positive thing that happened today was the debut of Alvaro Morata.“I don’t think it’s fair to talk about it [the penalty decisions] after a defeat,” said Simeone to Spanish media outlet Marca.“You saw it clearly.”“I’m talking about the team,” he added after saying how he will not speak about a non-called foul in the rival’s area against Morata, but then the team got a penalty called against them.Gerard Pique, Neymar, BarcelonaLa Liga Betting: Match-day 4 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Despite it being very early into La Liga season, both Barcelona and Real Madrid have had unprecedented starts to their campaigns. With this in…“There were few occasions for the two [up top – Morata and Antoine Griezmann].”“We could not find solutions when the game drew to a close,” he added.“Morata had an important job in his first game.”“Let’s hope he continues to contribute,” Simeone wished.“I see it differently. I am optimistic and the good thing is that Barcelona drew.”Atletico will not have an easy way to return to the winning path, as they will host Real Madrid next week.The team will then visit Rayo Vallecano just before they host Italian Lega Serie A club Juventus in the UEFA Champions League Round of 16.📸 | PHOTO GALLERYThe snaps of the #RealBetisAtleti match.➡ https://t.co/BDB1GDPWpp#AúpaAtleti pic.twitter.com/nXbuaAm8r0— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) February 3, 2019last_img read more

Souness says Liverpool has to win all matches to be champions

first_imgThe Reds are currently in second place of the English Premier League table with 65 points behind Manchester City.Manchester City is currently in first place of the English Premier League table with 65 points.Liverpool has the same number of points but it’s in the second position because they have one game less played than the Citizens.And for former professional Scottish midfielder Graeme Souness, the only way the Reds can win the EPL championship is to win all of their matches.“City were ruthless and they were devastating and they were clinical – and at the other end, Chelsea weren’t,” he told Sky Sports.“If you look at the match statistics and ask someone who’s not seen the game how they think it ended up, they’re never going to say it was 6-0.”“City were fabulous. I don’t know how to describe it. I watched the first five minutes and thought Chelsea were going to have a real go but then they conceded a goal, then they conceded a bad goal,” he continued.“City have put a marker down today. Liverpool are going to have to win every single game to win this league. City have the bit between their teeth right now.”“The way Liverpool beat Bournemouth [on Saturday] doesn’t confirm they’re back at their best,” Souness commented.Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.“But that result for City has confirmed after their hiccup, they’re saying: ‘We’re bang at it, this is how we’re going to finish the season’.”“If that is their form between now and the end of the season, Liverpool have to win every game. That’s what they’re looking at,” he added.“City today have won 6-0 and you’re thinking, with it being nearly 50/50 in possession, were they that good? Yeah, I think they were in the areas that mattered.”“When they came to defend, they defended properly as a unit and individually. Up front, they were getting goals, albeit through some mistakes from Chelsea,” the Scottish footballer added.“City have had their rollicking off their manager and they’ve had their points dropped. They’re going to take some stopping if that’s their mood between now and the end.”G I N I 😱 pic.twitter.com/UuvNKf4k1R— Liverpool FC (@LFC) February 10, 2019last_img read more
