Women’s World Cup 2019: Australia roars back from 2-0 deficit to stun Brazil

first_imgAustralia wanted a penalty in the 20th minute when Thaisa bundled into Tameka Yallop, but referee Esther Staubli waved away their appeals and the decision stood after VAR adjudged the Matildas midfielder handled in the build-up.Matters were made worse for Australia when Elise Kellond-Knight recklessly dragged down Leticia Santos and Marta sent Lydia Williams the wrong way from the resultant spot-kick, becoming the first player to score at five Women’s World Cups in the process.5 – Marta is the first player to score in five different editions of the FIFA Women’s World Cup, netting in 2019, 2015, 2011, 2007 and 2003.

Cristiane followed up on her hat trick from the opening win over Jamaica to add a second, but Caitlin Foord gave Australia hope.And after Chloe Logarzo’s fortuitous strike had restored parity, Australia completed a famous comeback when Monica headed into her own net and Sam Kerr was deemed not to be interfering in a contentious decision. Related News Marta’s 16th Women’s World Cup goal was not enough to inspire Brazil to victory as Australia rallied to a controversial 3-2 win Thursday in Group C. Brazil’s record scorer, who went off injured at halftime, moved level with Miroslav Klose’s tally of goals at World Cup finals when she opened the scoring in Montpellier with a 27th-minute penalty. Women’s World Cup 2019: USWNT went ‘overboard’ celebrating vs. Thailand, says Hope Solo Australia picked up where it left off and equalized when Logarzo’s long-range effort found its way through a crowd of players.Brazil’s misery was compounded eight minutes later. Monica inadvertently turned Emily van Egmond’s ball beyond Barbara, and although an offside call against Kerr seemed to have bailed out the Brazilians, the decision was overturned after a VAR review and Vadao’s side slumped to a humiliating defeat.last_img read more

Women’s Basketball Travels To UNI Friday Night

first_imgCEDAR FALLS, Iowa – The Drake University women’s basketball team plays its third-straight road contest on Friday night when it travels to UNI with a 7 p.m. tipoff scheduled at the McLeod Center. The in-state matchup will be broadcast online via The Valley On ESPN3. Drake (17-7, 10-3 MVC) and UNI (15-9, 10-3 MVC) along with Missouri State are locked in a first place tie on top of the Missouri Valley Conference standings. The Panthers defeated the Bulldogs by a score of 79-73 on Jan. 24 at the Knapp Center. Drake dropped its last game at Indiana State, 68-53, as the Bulldogs struggled to shoot the basketball at 30.9 percent from the floor and made just 3-of-20 attempts from behind the three-point line. Even with the poor shooting, Drake only trailed by five points at halftime, but an 11-2 run by Indiana State to start the third quarter proved to be the difference. Junior Lizzy Wendell (Blue Springs, Mo.) scored 18 points while sophomore Maddy Dean (Jordan, Minn.) recorded her fifth double-double of the season with 13 points and 10 rebounds. Indiana State held Drake, the MVC’s top scoring team at 80.2 points per game, to its lowest season total. The Sycamores are one of two league teams that hold opponents to less than 60.0 a game. UNI is the other top defensive team as it holds opponents to a league-low 58.2 points per game. Friday night features the MVC’s top offense and defense in a game that will factor heavily in the race for the regular season title. Junior Madison Weekly leads the Panthers and ranks second behind Wendell in the MVC at 17.3 points per game. Following Friday night’s game, Drake returns to the Knapp Center for its final two home games of the season as Loyola visits on Feb. 26 at 7 p.m. followed by Bradley on Feb. 28 at 2 p.m.Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

Rev Latimer said he was retiring with a “heavy heart”.Reflecting on his relationship with Mr McGuinness and the controversy it caused, he said: “You’ll never take everybody with you, but if you were to wait until all the ducks were in a row you would end up doing nothing.”“There was a hand that was guiding and a heart that was planning.“That was the hand and the heart associated by the maker of us all – Catholic, Protestant, atheist, agnostic, black, white, republican, loyalist, and I look back and I see what I could never have imagined – meeting a man named Martin McGuiness and Martin McGuiness meeting me.”The pair became friends in 2006 when Rev Latimer asked Mr McGuinness for help as his church, which overlooks the Bogside, was being attacked by paint.“We clicked and I believe maybe that was the reason I came to this city.” Advertisement Rev David Latimer: Donegal minister to retire in new year was last modified: November 8th, 2019 by Shaun KeenanShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
