Press Association Tottenham have announced that goalkeeper Heurelho Gomes will be leaving the club at the end of his contract. The 33-year-old Brazilian arrived in 2008 to much fanfare in a £7.8million deal, playing a key role in Spurs’ run to the Champions League quarter-finals three years later. However, Gomes made the last of his 135 appearances for the north Londoners in November 2011 and will be leaving the club this summer. A statement on the club’s official website, www.tottenhamhotspur.com, said: “Heurelho Gomes is to leave the club at the conclusion of his contract next month and we would like to wish the popular goalkeeper all the best for the future.” Gomes has acted as third-choice goalkeeper behind Hugo Lloris and Brad Friedel in recent seasons and made nine Bundesliga appearances on loan at Hoffenheim last season.

THE Malteenoes All Stars ended their run in the University of the West Indies (UWI) Unicom T20 cricket tournament after falling to the Queen’s Park Cricket Club by 55 runs on Friday evening, in semi-final one at the Sir Frank Worrell Cricket ground at UWI-SPEC in Trinidad.The Guyanese team won the toss and opted to bowl first, but the home team was up to the task.Several of their batsmen had starts, which propelled them to 160-7 in their allotted overs.Tion Webster and Nicholas Alexis led the attack with 37 (from 26 balls) and 35 (from 21 balls) respectively, while Justin Guillen finished with 25 runs from 19 balls.Left arm spinner Anthony Adams was the pick of the visiting bowlers. He grabbed 3-34, while Quintin Sampson took 2-31 from three overs.In the chase, Trevon Griffith scored 23 runs from 12 balls, while Raj Nannan finished with 17 runs from 20 balls, but overall, the Guyanese batsmen had little answer for Christopher Vincent and Jon Russ Jaggessar, who combined for seven wickets, which helped to restrict Malteenoes All Stars to 105 in 17.1 overs.Man-of-the-match Vincent took 4-25 from four overs, while Jaggessar took 3-21. Support came from Dexter Sween who finished with 2-36 from four overs.
Lin Zastrow, along with the rest of the Badgers, improved her play against Michigan State.[/media-credit]After all the heartbreaking, last-minute losses Wisconsin has suffered this season, the Badgers finally got some revenge Sunday, downing Michigan State 54-51 at the Kohl Center.In front of a season-high 14,657 fans, the Badgers held off the Spartans, who led the Big Ten standings entering Sunday’s contest.“It was awesome,” forward Tara Steinbauer said of the win. “Especially knocking off the No. 1 seeded team in the conference was really big for us.”Although the Badgers came out on top against the Spartans, the game was eerily similar to the tough losses they have endured throughout the conference season.With 24 seconds remaining, the Badgers’ Jade Davis had an opportunity for two shots at the free-throw line, leading 51-50 over MSU. Davis hit both shots, giving UW the lead with one last defensive possession left in the game.The situation resembled Wisconsin’s last home game, when Indiana took the ball with just under 40 seconds remaining in regulation trailing by three following an UW free throw.In that game, the Hoosiers’ Kim Roberson hit an open 3-pointer to send the game into overtime and give IU the momentum needed to win the game in overtime.So, when Michigan State fired up three shots from beyond the arc in the final 24 seconds of play Sunday, the Badgers were relieved to find that the Spartans failed to connect on all three attempts.“At the end of the game we said that those three misses that they had at the end counted for all the ones that people made on us,” forward Lin Zastrow said. “It feels good to finally get a win in a close game, especially against someone like Michigan State.”After proving Sunday they could win a close game in the final seconds, the Badgers are playing as well right now as they have all season.Although Wisconsin is just 2-2 since breaking a season long five-game losing streak, it could just as easily have gone 4-0 over the same stretch.“This is the perfect time to play the way we are, especially against two good teams,” Zastrow said. “We’re creating a lot of momentum going into the Big Ten Tournament.”Following the overtime home loss against the Hoosiers, the Badgers let a victory slip through their hands on the road against the Iowa Hawkeyes.Wisconsin led 32-30 at the half, the first time they went to the locker room with a lead after the first half since leading 24-15 against Penn State, a game they went on to lose in overtime.Unfortunately, they came out flat in the second half, going scoreless in the first five minutes of play while going 0-for-8 from the floor during that period.If UW could have won the game in Iowa City, it would currently be riding a four-game winning streak with a chance to extend it to five games before heading into the Big Ten Tournament.Despite the two losses, the Badgers feel they are peaking at just the right time of the year.“This team is getting hot at the right time, and these Badgers are a great group of young women,” UW head coach Lisa Stone said following Sunday’s win. “I’m so lucky and proud to coach them every single day, and I’m looking forward to making a big run here late.”The way the Badgers have improved of late has a lot to do with the greater balance in scoring they have achieved over the entire 40 minutes of each game to overcome the loss of Mariah Dunham following her dismissal from the team.One player who has really stepped up over the Badgers’ recent stretch is Steinbauer, who has done an excellent job filling in for Dunham.In the last four games, Wisconsin has had at least three players score in double figures in each game. In the last two, the Badgers had five players reach double figures at Iowa and four at home Sunday against Michigan State.“If we can get that kind of even scoring distribution every game, I think we’re going to be in pretty good shape,” Steinbauer said. “I think it’s just one of those things that comes the more you play together. We’ve just been doing a really fantastic job of sharing the ball recently, and it’s really shown in our scoring.”
Unforced errors continue to drag Syracuse down.Outside hitter Samantha Clarey struck a ball out of bounds to end what had been a competitive first set against Pittsburgh on Sunday afternoon. Two net violations in the early stages of the set and four Syracuse attacking errors helped the Panthers pull away for a 25-22 win.The Orange continued to give Pitt easy points in a three-set sweep by the Panthers. The unforced errors cost Syracuse crucial points in what was otherwise a competitive match. The mistakes are one of the main causes of the Orange’s recent slide. SU has lost six of its last eight games with some coming against teams they expected to beat, including Buffalo and Binghamton.“It was a lot of unforced mistakes, a lot of errors,” Syracuse head coach Leonid Yelin said. “This is the game, unfortunately. If we made less errors it might have been different.”The net violations were a symptom of aggressive play, Syracuse assistant coach Stephanie Cantway said. The coaching staff has been stressing assertiveness on the block, so those errors came as a side effect. Mistakes in other facets of the game ultimately became critical.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“When we’re blocking well, we’re going to have some errors; it’s kind of a give and take,” Cantway said. “When you’re being aggressive and hitting well and serving well, you can have errors. But we weren’t being aggressive in those areas and still had errors, and that’s what got us to where we are.”Those attacking woes worsened as the match went on. The Orange made five errors each in the second and third sets of the match. Its hitting rate dropped from .275 in the first set to .147 in the second and .065 in the third. Outside hitter Silvi Uattara posted nearly as many kills and attacking errors as the rest of the team combined. Hitting mistakes kept the Orange from establishing a consistent offensive game.Service struggles disrupted Syracuse nearly as much. The team made four service errors in the match, and most of them came at important points.Andrea Fisher hit a serve out of bounds to give Pitt a 13-11 advantage and start a 3-0 run in the second set. When the Orange got the serve back, Emily Betteridge hit a serve into the net to swing the momentum back to Pitt. The Panthers began pulling away soon after.Fisher, who despite tallying six kills made three attacking errors and two service errors, said the team gets flustered when one player makes a mistake, and it leads to even more mistakes.“As a team, if someone makes an error, it kind of affects all of us,” Fisher said. “We really need to work on just staying focused individually and not letting our errors affect us.”Yelin said careless mistakes have been Syracuse’s downfall in losses against beatable competition. He knows it’s something his team needs to improve upon as it enters the thick of Big East competition.“A lot of times this year we’ve lost because of our mistakes,” Yelin said. “It’s discipline and focus, and that’s something we need to change.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 8, 2012 at 1:12 am Contact Jacob: email@example.com Comments
Published on November 17, 2013 at 1:16 pm Contact David: firstname.lastname@example.org | @DBWilson2 Facebook Twitter Google+ TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — There were few positives for Syracuse to take away from Saturday’s 59-3 loss to No. 2 Florida State, but Scott Shafer is pleased that viewers got to see something that he’s known all along.“I was really pleased with the two young guys I’ve been talking about since I got the job,” the Orange’s head coach said.George Morris II and Devante McFarlane, who have spent the season buried on the depth chart behind Jerome Smith and Gulley, received the bulk of the action in Saturday’s loss. Morris led the Orange with 21 carries and piled up 67 yards on the ground. McFarlane’s 13 carries ranked second on the team and he led SU with 81 rushing yards and 23 receiving yards.With the game out of hand early and Gulley already knocked out with an injury on his first carry, Syracuse decided not to risk anything. Smith carried the ball just five times — all in the first half.The Orange turned to Morris and McFarlane. Morris said he had a feeling he would get most of the action with Gulley and Smith on the sideline — he received the second most carries in last week’s win over Maryland when Gulley was pulled because of an ankle injury. Shafer wanted to keep his team healthy, but he also wanted to see how Morris and McFarlane would fare against an elite FSU team.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“You’ve got to be very disciplined,” Morris said. “Go with your first read and not do too much.”Morris was most impressed by Florida State’s sideline-to-sideline speed. He felt he could still break runs on the outside, but big plays were tough to come by.Morris’ day wasn’t spectacular, but running well against the Seminoles was still something to be proud of.“It feels good to say that,” Morris said. “You hung with the No. 2 team in the nation and you gave it your best shot.”McFarlane had more success in the explosive plays department. His only catch made him Syracuse’s leading receiver in terms of yardage and he busted a team-best 28-yard run during the second half. McFarlane also led the Orange with 6.2 yards per carry.“I think we’ve got two very good football players and they’re just young pups coming up through and we’re going to have them for a few years,” Shafer said, “so I was excited to see those guys get a chance and run around a little bit.” Comments
Facebook Twitter Google+ After jumping out to an early lead Saturday, Syracuse couldn’t finish the job it started and lost its first of two weekend road tests.The Orange (7-10, 2-9 Atlantic Coast) won the doubles point and looked in control during singles play before falling 4-3 to Wake Forest (13-11, 3-9) in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.The doubles tandem of Amanda Rodgers and Rhiann Newborn made quick work of Andrea Retolaza and Xue Zhang, winning 8-3. Breanna Bachini and Nicole Mitchell then won their match in a tiebreaker after previously falling behind 7-5, clinching the doubles point for SU.Syracuse’s Valeria Salazar was the first Syracuse player to win a singles match. She disposed of Zhang, 6-4, 6-2, at second singles.At third singles, Newborn also won for the Orange, beating Samantha Asch in straight sets, 7-5, 7-5.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse’s fourth through sixth singles players, however, were not as fortunate. Bachini lost to Luisa Fernandez at the No. 4 spot, 6-2, 7-5. Komal Safdar lost a competitive match at fifth singles, 6-3, 4-6, 6-4, to Karen Forman. At sixth singles, Mitchell won only one game in a straight-set loss to Courtney Meredith.With the match tied at 3-3, Syracuse’s fate for the day rested on the shoulders of Rodgers, SU’s No. 1 singles player. And for a moment, it looked like she might send the Orange off a winner.After splitting the first two sets, Rodgers held a 4-2 and 5-4 lead in the third set against Kimmy Guerin. But she ultimately lost it in a tiebreaker and thus dropped the match, 3-6, 7-6, 7-6.Syracuse still has a chance to salvage the road trip and will seek its third ACC victory when it meets Virginia Tech (13-7, 4-6) on Sunday at 10 a.m. in Blacksburg, Virginia.
