Nick Salafrio assisted on UWF’s lone goal in a 2-1 overtime loss on Friday (Photo by Ron Besser) Share No. 14 Barry Slips by West Florida 2-1 in Season Opener MIAMI SHORES, Fla. – The West Florida men’s soccer team had a tough task ahead of them in Friday’s season opener at No. 14 Barry, and the Argonauts took the Buccaneers to the edge in a 2-1 overtime loss. UWF led for the majority of the game after scoring in the first half, but Barry tied the score in the 77th minute and clinched the win in overtime.UWF (0-1) got on the scoreboard first, as newcomer Junior Prevalus (Boynton Beach, Fla./Culver Stockton) scored the team’s first goal of 2011 in the 34th minute. The scoring play started as sophomore midfielder Nick Salafrio (Gainesville, Fla./Buchholz HS) held the ball near the left corner, and Prevalus used his speed to sprint forward into the box. Salafrio found Prevalus open in the middle, where he was ready for a one-touch shot past Barry goalkeeper Johnny Rodrigues.The Argonauts held the lead going into halftime, but Barry (1-0) was very active on the attack, attempting 12 shots to UWF’s six. The Bucs kept the pressure on, and they finally broke through with the equalizer at the 76:24 mark. Mark Anderson received a pass from Kendall Sealy on a breakaway, and he beat UWF’s freshman goalkeeper Stuart McCrory (Prattville, Ala./Prattville HS) to tie the score at 1-1. Anderson then nearly won the game with less than two minutes left in regulation, but his shot ricocheted off the post.After a hard-fought six minutes in the first overtime period, Barry broke through with the game-winner. Eyal Schechter and Joong Kim combined to send the ball to Sealy in the middle, and Sealy headed the ball over McCrory and into the net.McCrory finished his first collegiate game with six saves, including five in the first half. Rodrigues totaled two saves in goal for Barry while allowing one goal. The Bucs outshot UWF 19-11, and they also were awarded six corner kicks to the Argonauts’ two.The Argos will finish their two-game trip to South Florida with a match at Nova Southeastern at 1:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, Sep. 4.

SAITAMA – Top-ranked challenger Julian Lorcy of France took a hard-fought unanimous decision from Takanori Hatakeyama on Sunday to wrest the World Boxing Association (WBA) lightweight title from the Japanese champion.Both boxers exchanged fierce blows from the outset at Saitama Super Arena, with Hatakeyama throwing a rally of body blows while Lorcy, on the defensive for most of the 12-rounder, countered with uppercuts and left jabs that stung the champion. Lorcy, 29, a former WBA lightweight champion, hit Hatakeyama with combinations to the head throughout the fight but the tenacious Hatakeyama continued to back the Frenchman into the corner with body blows.In the end, Erkki Meronen of Finland scored the fight 117-112, Stan Christodoulou of South Africa saw it 117-111 and Lou Tabat of the United States had it 118-112 — all for Lorcy. “I have nothing to say. I lost the fight fair and square. He was simply the better fighter. He had more stamina than I did and was greater in all respects and he prevailed,” Hatakeyama said after the fight.Lorcy explained later that “My punches were more accurate than Takanori’s punches. This was the big difference in the fight.” IN FIVE EASY PIECES WITH TAKE 5 GET THE BEST OF THE JAPAN TIMES
Former national senior women’s team coach, Charles Edwards, has heaped blame on the nation’s football administrators for the Reggae Girlz’s disappointing showing at the ongoing Concacaf Women’s Olympic Qualifiers in the United States. Edwards, who was head coach of the Reggae Girlz at the Pan American Games in 2007, believes that instead of ‘riding the wave’ and capitalising on the Girlz’s FIFA Women’s World Cup qualification in France last year, the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) drove the programme into turmoil and he believes our performance at the tournament is a result of the ripple effects of the federation’s mishandling of a number of affairs concerning the women’s teams and their coaches following the World Cup, “We went to the (men’s) FIFA World Cup in 1998 and we never rode that momentum. I was hoping that with the Girlz going to the World Cup we would have got on top of the wave to push the programme forward but we have seen where we have fallen down. So we definitely suffer from an administrative problem, we are not recognising the importance of these waves to push the programme forward. “The blame has to be on the administrative side because the coaches don’t pick themselves. The coaches (that were) there before had a falling-out with the JFF because of a reported lack of honouring payments for salaries and money owed. So if what we hear in the media is true the blame has to go on the side of the administrators,” he told The Gleaner. Since the Reggae Girlz’s historic qualification to the FIFA Women’s World Cup, things have gone downhill, with head coach Hue Menzies quitting the programme due to the federation’s failure to pay money, he said, was owed to him and poor communication. Menzies’ assistant and heir apparent, Lorne Donaldson, then walked away, citing poor administration. As a result, goalkeeper coach Hubert Busby Jr was only appointed to the job one week ahead of the tournament and Edwards said that was a grave error. However, he does not think the 9-0 defeat to Canada is a massive setback. He said the programme can recover quickly from the embarrassment if they get the girls properly prepared for future tournaments. “To the average spectator looking on it (9-0) would seem like a serious setback but I would want to more look at it as an eye-opener. A lot of issues caused these problems. Now it’s just a matter of getting the players and coaches to sit and have a meeting and iron out all the issues and put the proper things in place and I think we can get over it quickly,” he said. “I don’t know if changes (technically) are needed right now … but we need to start dealing with the team on a better level in terms of the commitments we make … We need a proper programme in place so the team can be assembled quicker (ahead of tournaments),” Edwards said. He added that some overseas professionals might not be able to join the team immediately but they are in a well-organised environment and that will help them fit in quickly when they join up with the rest of the squad. “But the rest of players need to be in camps working diligently and hard to get the team meshed together. So going forward the administration needs to sit down and look at the programme and see where they want to go and give the coaches more time to work with the team,” he added, while noting that the players’ mental toughness also needs to improve.
Ryan Hunter-Reay during practice for the IndyCar Firestone Grand Prix of St. Petersburg auto race March 27, 2015, in St. Petersburg, Fla.A Chevrolet official has blamed valve springs for a mass repair following the IndyCar season opener.The repairs cost Chevy 220 manufacturer points for what series officials called a “non-minor engine repair.” The penalty put Chevy in the negative and gave the early manufacturer points lead to Honda, whose highest-finishing driver at St. Petersburg, Ryan Hunter-Reay, was seventh.Jim Campbell, Chevrolet’s U.S. vice president for performance vehicles and motorsports, said the springs were replaced because engineers thought they could fail.“We identified a batch of valve springs that, due to a process change at one of our suppliers, may fracture before the full mileage requirement,” Campbell said in a statement released by Chevrolet. “We notified IndyCar of the issue and obtained approval to change the valve springs.”Cavin: Making sense of Chevrolet infractionEleven of the 12 Chevy engines were repaired after the St. Petersburg opener.Chevrolet and Honda competitors are using the first of their allotted four engines covering 10,000 miles for the season.According to to IndyCar rules, manufacturers are awarded points for their top three race finishers. Bonus points are awarded for pole position and the manufacturer leading the most laps.Chevy originally received 128 points for its top three finishers — Juan Pablo Montoya (first), Will Power (second) and Tony Kanaan (third) — and the bonus points for pole position (Power) and most laps led (Power). The 220-point penalty left Chevy at -92 points and 162 points behind Honda, whose top three drivers at St. Petersburg finished seventh, eighth and 10th.The IndyCar season resumes Sunday with the Grand Prix of Louisiana at NOLA Motorsports Park in Avondale, La.Bourdais: Blame IndyCar drivers, not aero kits

Week 8 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST | KickerIs Rob Gronkowski playing Monday night?Gronk (back) is “questionable” after getting in limited practices all week, and all reports have indicated that he will suit up against the Bills on Monday night.Considering we’re talking about the Pats here, it wouldn’t hurt to grab Charles Clay or Dwayne Allen if you have space, but Gronk should be good to go in Week 8. He’s a must-start.WEEK 8 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endAllen Robinson injury updateUPDATE: Robinson is officially OUT.After playing sparingly in Week 7, Robinson (groin) is “questionable” heading into Week 8. ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported late Saturday night that Robinson is not expected to play.It’s a fairly favorable matchup, so it will be tough to sit Robinson if he’s somehow active, but there are obviously plenty of worries with him. Last week, Trey Burton and Tarik Cohen saw most of the extra targets, but Taylor Gabriel and Anthony Miller also have some flex appeal if Robinson is out.MORE WEEK 8: How You’ll Lose | Preview podcast | DFS adviceIs Randall Cobb playing Week 8?UPDATE 2: Cobb is officially ACTIVE.UPDATE: Cobb is expected to play.Cobb (hamstring) hasn’t played in over a month, so it’s somewhat concerning he was only able to practice on a limited basis this week and is listed as “questionable” for Sunday’s game against the Rams. There aren’t many key “questionable” pass-catchers in Week 8 (Rob Gronkowski, Allen Robinson, Randall Cobb, Josh Gordon), but that doesn’t mean fantasy owners won’t be frantically checking for active/inactive updates throughout the day Sunday and Monday. Fortunately, we already know a bunch of WRs who are “out” or “doubtful” (Cooper Kupp, Jamison Crowder, Quincy Enunwa, Robby Anderson, Pierre Garcon), but start ’em, sit ’em decisions will still go down to the last minute this week — or at least until the last official injury update.We’ll be here with you all day Sunday updating this post and our RB updates for guys like Matt Breida, Marlon Mack, and LeSean McCoy (which you can find here). You can also get the latest news and advice by following us on Twitter @SN_Fantasy. Because it’s a late-afternoon kickoff, fantasy owners should have a backup ready if they’re planning on using Cobb. The good news is teammate Geronimo Allison (hamstring) wasn’t even listed on the final injury report, so he’ll be available and worth using. If Cobb is out, Marquez Valdes-Scantling would once again be in play as a potential fantasy starter.Is Josh Gordon playing Monday night?Gordon (hamstring) has practiced in limited fashion and been listed as “questionable” every week since joining the Patriots, so his “questionable” designation for Monday night’s game against the Bills shouldn’t concern his owners.There’s little reason to think Gordon won’t suit up on Monday, and given his increasing role in the Pats offense the past two weeks, he’s a solid WR2/3 in all fantasy formats.
