Berra goal earns Scotland win

first_img The Watford wide-man then tested McGovern with a low drive which was turned round the post for a well-worked corner which finished with James McArthur driving high over from 20 yards. A subdued Northern Ireland side created a decent chance in the 13th minute when Josh Magennis headed a raking Evans pass into the path of the unmarked Oliver Norwood but the Reading midfielder slashed his shot over the bar. Anya had another long-distance drive which sped past the post and his third attempt in the 22nd minute was also off-target, after he had been played in by McArthur following a break. Midfielder Shaun Maloney was the next to fire over the bar after the increasingly confident Anya laid the ball into the path. The Scots kept huffing and puffing and in the final minute McGovern again blocked Fletcher after he had been put through by Maloney. As expected, Strachan made interval substitutions with Gordon, stopper Martin and Maloney being replaced by Allan McGregor, Berra and Steven Naismith. The latter came close within five minutes with a near-post header from a Forsyth cross from the bye-line following a Fletcher pass. The home side jauntily continued on their quest for the goal their performance deserved. Just before the hour-mark the Irish replaced Chris Baird and Will Grigg with Lee Hodson and Paddy McCourt and the match, understandably, began to fragment as more substitutions followed. Ritchie drove wide with an effort from distance and McGovern made another save, this time from a Naismith header. But with five minutes remaining the Hamilton keeper was eventually beaten as Berra got his head to a Ritchie corner, sending the ball in at the near post. It was a decent performance from the Scots as they turn their attention to their 2016 Euro qualifier against Gibraltar at the national stadium on Sunday although Gordon Strachan will be looking for his side to be more incisive in front of goal. Michael O’Neill’s team were rather insipid but they will be glad of the work-out ahead of their Group F qualifier at home to Finland on Sunday. Strachan, as promised, utilised his squad with Ritchie handed his debut. The English-born Bournemouth right winger, who qualifies through his father Alex, was drafted into the squad for the first time this week and was asked to support main striker Fletcher with Anya on the other flank. Derby defender Craig Forsyth made his first start as Celtic’s Craig Gordon was given the nod in goal and West Brom midfielder Darren Fletcher took the armband. Manchester United’s Paddy McNair was given his debut and the 19-year-old teamed up in defence at right-back with Old Trafford team mate Jonny Evans who captained the visitors. And both players had their hands full as Scotland started with purpose. In the fourth minute McGovern, making his second appearance for the visitors, denied Fletcher with a fine save, after the Sunderland striker had been set up by Anya. Visiting keeper Michael McGovern made several saves in the first half to keep an enterprising home side at bay, most notably from Steven Fletcher and Ikechi Anya. The Scots also had the best of a second half which was punctuated with substitutions but it looked like ending in a stalemate until the 85th minute when the Ipswich defender, these days down the pecking order but who had replaced Russell Martin, headed in a corner from debutant Matt Ritchie. A late header by substitute Christophe Berra gave Scotland a narrow but deserved 1-0 win over Northern Ireland in their Vauxhall International Challenge match at Hampden Park.

Real survive early Atletico onslaught to reach final

first_imgBy Rik SharmaMADRID, Spain (Reuters) – Real Madrid survived an early Atletico Madrid onslaught to reach the Champions League final, 4-2 on aggregate yesterday and set up a mouth-watering clash against Juventus.Atletico roared into a two-goal lead in the semi-final second leg with a Saul Niguez header and Antoine Griezmann’s penalty, but Isco notched in the 42nd minute for Real who saw out the game calmly to lose 2-1 on the night and ease into the final.Real, who won the first leg at home 3-0, have now eliminated Atletico from the competition in four consecutive seasons, including the 2014 and 2016 finals.Zinedine Zidane’s side can become the first team to retain the Champions League title when they face his former club Juventus in the final in Cardiff on June 3.“It’s special, for sure, (Juventus) gave me everything,” Zidane told reporters. “But I’m with Real Madrid, another club of my life. It will be a beautiful final.”Atletico’s final European game at the Vicente Calderon before they move stadiums will be remembered for the fantastic atmosphere the supporters created as they tried to help their team overcome their arch-rivals.But Simeone’s men could not break their European curse against Real.“The first 20 minutes of this magic night at the Calderon will be remembered forever,” the Atletico coach said. “We have to be proud of the players. They kept hope, showing we weren’t talking for the sake of talking but because we believed.”Driven on by the deafening Calderon, Atletico started well, creating more danger in the opening minutes than they managed in the entire first leg before Saul nodded home Koke’s corner in the 12th minute.When Raphael Varane brought down Fernando Torres four minutes later and Antoine Griezmann converted the penalty, the comeback seemed a real possibility.But Real, who last failed to score 61 games ago, were not to be denied. Karim Benzema’s sensational solo dribble on the left byline took out three Atletico defenders and he cut the ball back for Toni Kroos to drive a shot at goal.Jan Oblak made an excellent save to keep the German at bay but Isco was on hand to poke home from close range and give Real a precious away goal.Atletico continued to press but Navas pulled off a fine double save to deny Yannick Carrasco and Kevin Gameiro.Cristiano Ronaldo thought he had added a second for Real but it was harshly ruled out for offside and the visitors calmly kept possession in the closing minutes to stay on course for a 12th European Cup.last_img read more

Badgers thrash UW-Milwaukee

first_imgJEFF SCHORFHEIDE/Herald photoMake no mistake about it — Joe Krabbenhoft doesn’t want to be known as the team’s main scoring catalyst, let alone as a scoring threat.Preferring to do the team’s dirty work by grabbing rebounds, diving on the floor for loose balls and doing all the little things to make sure the University of Wisconsin ends up on with tallies in the win column are things that rank much higher for the senior than putting the ball in the basket.But when his team needed an offensive push in the first half against UW-Milwaukee on Saturday, Krabbenhoft begrudgingly obliged.Averaging only 5.8 points in UW’s first five games, Krabbenhoft scored a season-high 12 points, including a vital nine first-half points, and added 10 rebounds to help No. 25 Wisconsin pull away in the second half, beating in-state rival UW-Milwaukee, 67-46, Saturday afternoon.“We did a great job playing Wisconsin basketball,” Krabbenhoft said. “We wanted to go out there, play hard and do those (little) things, and the score will take care of itself, which it did.”Krabbenhoft, who fell one point short of his career high, had been providing for Wisconsin (5-1) in a variety of areas in the early weeks of the season, except on the scoreboard. Leading the team in both assists and rebounds by a solid margin, Krabbenhoft’s season high entering the game was a quiet seven points.But with his teammates starting the game 3-for-10 shooting and struggling from the floor, Krabbenhoft picked up the void, scoring nine of his 12 points in the game’s first 10 minutes and all at opportune times.All four of his first-half baskets came with Wisconsin either tied or trailing the Panthers, a team that had diligently battled Marquette throughout the first half before losing by 20 last week, and all of the points came with his size advantage in the paint. For the game, the Badgers outscored the Panthers 26-18 under the basket with Krabbenhoft doing most of the dirty work early on.“My teammates did a great job of finding me down low,” said Krabbenhoft, who also had three assists with no turnovers. “I had a height advantage of some of the guys guarding me, and they were just easy buckets. I tried to get my hands on some offensive rebounds that went my way, and I did my best job of trying to finish.”UW-Milwaukee (3-4) didn’t go away though, which was evident by the Panthers being within three points at 26-23 with four minutes, 40 seconds left in the first half. From there, however, it was all Wisconsin, as the Badgers closed the first half on an 11-4 run and kept their foot on the accelerator after halftime, rattling off a 23-8 run to open the half, eliminating all doubts of another in-state victory for Wisconsin.“The first 17 minutes of the game, we seemed to be doing the things that followed the game plan,” said UWM head coach and former Badger assistant Rob Jeter, as the Panthers fell to 1-25 lifetime against the Badgers. “That didn’t carry over into the last three minutes of the first half and into the second half where the dry spell was a big partof the lack of success tonight.”After 22 turnovers turned into 31-Connecticut points one week ago, costing UW a chance at beating the country’s second-ranked team, the Badgers cleaned up their act. UW-Milwaukee scored only four points off six Wisconsin turnovers while the Badgers turned 11 UW-Milwaukee turnovers into 13 points.“You don’t want to have turnovers. Turnovers lead to other baskets for the other team,” senior Marcus Landry said. “That’s something we try to focus on and make sure that we are handling the ball and making good decisions.”Krabbenhoft wasn’t alone in the scoring department for the Badgers, as junior Trevon Hughes scored a game-high 16 points on 5-for-8 shooting, including 4-for-4 from behind the three-point line, and Landry chipped in with 12. The three leaders on Wisconsin scored 40 of UW’s 67 points and shot 15-for-25 (60 percent).“We just ran our offense, made the extra pass and were getting open looks,” said Hughes, UW’s leading scorer this season at 14.2 points per game. “We’ve got unselfish people on this team — and sometimes we’re too unselfish. But this time we got into the paint, we drove and kicked it; we had our shooters open, our big men making plays in the post, and our shots were falling.”With the Badgers facing Virginia Tech (4-2) tonight in Blacksburg for their first true road game of the season, Wisconsin will be able to show off what they learned from the Connecticut game. Of course, the Badgers will have had little time to prepare for the Hokies. After beating UW-Milwaukee Saturday afternoon, the Badgers had a brief walkthrough on Sunday before flying to Blacksburg for their game tonight, marking their fifth game in the last 10 days.The Hokies, meanwhile, last played on Nov. 26 and will be well-rested and prepared for the Badgers.“The Big Ten office had our schedule. They knew we played Saturday. If you play Saturday, you don’t want the Monday game. And, of course, we got the Monday game,” UW head coach Bo Ryan said. “It’s the NBA schedule.”last_img read more

SA whisky wins ‘world’s best grain’ title

first_img Bain’s distillers attribute part of its success to the distillery’s location. “Our whisky showcases South Africa’s ability to produce a premium, specialist whisky of an award-winning international standard while reflecting a unique taste of place,” Bain’s said. “Only the finest South African grain is used to create our elegant premium whisky. “Made from water that flows over 850-million year old sandstone and indigenous fynbos, Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky holds a unique and distinctive flavour profile,” the producers said. It has won several awards since its launch, including silver medals at the 2010, 2011 and 2012 editions of the International Spirits Challenge and gold medals at the 2011 and 2012 editions of the International Wine and Spirits Competition. “By taking the World’s Best Grain Whisky title, we have amply demonstrated that South Africa can make exceptional whiskies,” Green said. “The 2013 title follows last year’s win by Three Ships 5 year old of the WWA’s World’s Best Blended Whisky, [and] puts South Africa as a whisky-producing country squarely on the map.” SAinfo reporter 26 March 2013 Bain’s Cape Mountain Whisky secured a first for South Africa when it was named the world’s best grain whisky at Whisky Magazine’s annual World Whisky Awards in London last week. More than 300 whiskies had to make it through three blind tasting rounds – judged by journalists and retailers, with master blenders, distillers and brand ambassadors in the final round – to be crowned best in their categories. “South African whisky featured in the top ranks again this year with Bain’s winning the title of World’s Best Grain Whisky,” the magazine said. “This isn’t just a win for this brand but for South African whisky-making,” Bain’s distiller, Jeff Green, said in a statement. Bain’s was established in 2009 at the James Sedgwick Distillery in Wellington in the Western Cape. It became the first single grain whisky to be produced in South Africa.last_img read more
