England notch up 30th victory over France

first_imgEngland kept up their impressive record against France with a 13-7 win in the latest international at Vidauban Golf Club, near Nice.This was England’s 30th victory since the biennial match was first played in 1934. In that time, the French have won just five times, most recently in 2010 in Chantilly.Play was tight on the first day, when the opening foursomes were shared and England managed to edge just one point ahead after the singles.But, the second day’s play was reduced to one session of singles because of the threat of torrential rain and storms – and England wasted no time in racing ahead.The team won 6.5 of the eight points on offer to underline their superiority in this event. Ben Jones and David Hague were the top scorers, both with a perfect record of three wins from three games. Matthew Jordan, Todd Clements and Gian-Marco Petrozzi all had two wins.The team:Todd Clements, 21, Braintree, EssexBailey Gill, 20, Lindrick, YorkshireDavid Hague, 21, Malton & Norton, YorkshireBen Jones, 18, Northamptonshire CountyMatthew Jordan, 22, Royal Liverpool, CheshireBilly McKenzie, 23, Rowlands Castle, HampshireGian-Marco Petrozzi, 21, Trentham, StaffordshireAndrew Wilson, 24, Darlington, DurhamClick here for full scores 13 May 2018 England notch up 30th victory over France Tags: France, Vidauban Golf Clublast_img read more

Powered by Firework Former English footballer Alex Scott’s one comment about Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City team created a controversy. Alex Scott was there in the talk show of Sky Sports at the time of showing the video of the Goals of the first game week.Advertisement Image Courtesy: AFPWhen she started to praise the attacking line up of Manchester City, Alex Scott mentioned,“Would Messi, with his levels even get into a Pep team?”Advertisement Her words have created a huge controversy. She just tried to emphasize the depth of the attacking line up of Manchester City. One of their main attacking options, Leroy Sane is out of the field for the next 7-8 months with an injury in the anterior cruciate ligament. Without him, Manchester City produced such a stellar performance against West Ham United in the opening match of the season. Even two of their best players, Sergio Aguero and Bernadro Silva were in the bench in this match.However, Alex Scott was questioned by a few fans of Lionel Messi on Twitter. Alex Scott replied to them on Twitter. She said,Advertisement  “Would ‘todays’ Messi fit into the Manchester City Team? Of course he could…“But the point on the show, which I thought would be interesting to start a debate was…“Would Pep have to change City’s high intensity style of play to fit Messi in? And if so, WOULD HE??”Alex Scott brought the topic of Lionel Messi to start a debate and she had no intention of demeaning Lionel Messi.Manchester City clinch Community Shield with Tiebreaker heroics of Claudio Bravo Advertisementlast_img read more

A Summer Destination

first_imgBy Art PetrosemoloMonmouth Park is not just a mecca for horse fans, it’s a whole lot moreOCEANPORT – A summer visit to Monmouth County and the Two River area is not complete without a trip to Monmouth Park (MP). With a horse racing history that dates back to 1870, Monmouth Park, now, is not just a mecca for horse fans.In recent years, and in particular under private management since 2012, MP has and is refashioning itself into a family and entertainment destination. It has become a place where there are things to see, things to do, things to eat along with thoroughbred racing, what has always been called “the sport of kings.”ZaApproval – Red Bank StakesThe focal point of MP’s family events is Sunday Family Fun Day (Memorial Day – Labor Day). From noon to 4 p.m., with regular $3 grandstand admission, in the picnic area there is family entertainment including live music, clowns, pony rides, bounce house, face painting and games. Children under 12 enjoy free admission to the Oceanport track.Monmouth Park has built a 36-hole miniature golf course on the north end of the park. Daily, throughout the season, on race and non-race days, weather permitting, the course opens at 10 a.m. and stays open until 8 p.m. weekdays and 9 p.m. weekends.The famous racing dawn patrol is held each Saturday and Sunday starting at 8 a.m. beginning on the clubhouse apron. There is no charge for the program but make a reservation. It gives you an inside look of what racing is all about with a motorized tour of the backstretch, starting gate and jockey’s room.

Today, Jersey-bred horses and thoroughbreds from across the country gather for the 60-plus day meet at the Jersey Shore. The racing schedule centers around the weekend with Saturday and Sunday cards plus Friday action throughout the summer and some Monday racing.The track’s premier event is the annual Grade 1 Haskell stakes to be run this season on Sunday, July 28.

In the past, many of the season’s triple crown winners and favorites have raced in the Haskell.A mere stone’s throw from the beach, Monmouth Park is easy to get to for a day away from the hot summer sun or as an alternative to outlet shopping on days with no sun.

Kings take their turn

first_imgDENVER — A good team captain will do anything to give his guys a boost, not that the Kings’ Mattias Norstrom particularly wants to volunteer for target-practice duty any time soon. The Kings trailed by two goals in the second period when Norstrom took a dangerous and dubious hit from Colorado’s Brad May directly in front of the penalty boxes, and the hit provided the impetus the Kings needed to rally for a 5-4 deficit over the Avalanche before 18,007 at the Pepsi Center. “I don’t know if that was the turning point, but we got a little fire back in our game,” Norstrom said. Craig Conroy provided the biggest spark, as he scored with 59 seconds remaining to break the tie. Conroy, who also had three assists, skated hard to the net and was in position when Alexander Frolov played the puck behind the net and fired a perfect centering pass to Conroy. In the Kings’ estimation, the hockey gods probably owed them one. Exactly two weeks after they blew a four-goal lead in their season opener at Dallas, the Kings trailed 4-1 early in the second period but managed to cut out their mistakes, particularly in net, and rally for their fifth victory in seven games. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week “I can’t say we deserved to be down 4-1,” Norstrom said. “We deserved to win that game.” The victory drew smiles from most, but more of a sigh of relief from goaltender Mathieu Garon, who is locked into a rotation with Jason LaBarbera as the Kings remain unsure of their long-term plans. Garon endured a dreadful first period, in which he allowed three goals on the first eight shots he faced, but coach Andy Murray stuck with Garon, who saved 12 of 13 shots in the final two periods. “I was happy for Mathieu; that was a big win for him,” Murray said. “We stuck with him and he stuck with us. In my opinion, if we had removed him it would have been an excuse for the rest of the players, and we weren’t about to do that.” Murray’s faith was rewarded, particularly with 1:15 remaining in the second period when Garon stopped a breakaway attempt by Colorado’s Joe Sakic. The Kings tied the game 4-4 just 51 seconds later, when Eric Belanger whipped a cross-ice pass to Sean Avery for a one-time goal. center_img “(Murray) showed some confidence when he left me in,” Garon said. “It would have been easy to pull me out.” Murray’s message, sent by leaving Garon in the game, didn’t escape notice, “He said, ‘Mathieu is going to play the rest of the game and he’s going to shut them down,” and that’s what he did,” Conroy said. “He was able to make some key saves at key times in the game.” KINGS NOTES: Just three days after he suffered a groin strain, Robitaille played Wednesday. Robitaille hasn’t missed a game to injury since the 1999-2000 season. “We taped it and it feels pretty good,” Robitaille said. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
