  • Georgia Tech, Virginia Tech prep for Thursday showdown; Ebron stars for North Carolina

    first_img Published on September 26, 2013 at 1:16 am Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass When Georgia Tech and Virginia Tech square off in Atlanta on Thursday night, they will both be coming off five days of rest and a grueling game last Saturday.Georgia Tech rallied against North Carolina, while Virginia Tech barely survived in triple overtime against Marshall.This Saturday’s game is on ESPN at 7:30 p.m., and could have long-term implications as both teams jockey for the ACC Coastal Division championship.“It’s just really tough to come off five days’ rest,” Georgia Tech head coach Paul Johnson said at the teleconference Wednesday. “And it’s hard on the kids.”The Yellow Jackets trailed 20-7 in the second quarter against the Tar Heels. They scored 21 unanswered points the rest of the way, though, remaining undefeated on the year.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Hokies, meanwhile, battled Marshall in front of more than 64,000 fans as rain poured down at Lane Stadium in Blacksburg, Va. Virginia Tech survived an ugly game, scoring with 3:09 left in regulation and outlasting the Thundering Herd in triple overtime.“We’re coming out of a really physical game with North Carolina,” Johnson said, “and I’m sure they had a lot of plays going into triple overtime.”Virginia Tech head coach Frank Beamer said at the teleconference that he expects a serious challenge ahead.“Well, as you can imagine, your whole week is sped up,” Beamer said, “trying to cover a lot of things in a short period of time.”Beamer said Georgia Tech’s option offense is completely different than Marshall’s offense. He added that 32 of the 69 players traveling with Virginia Tech are first- or second-year players.Despite the challenges, though, Beamer believes his players are excited for the opportunity to play on national television.Beamer said: “It’s certainly being on national TV on Thursday night that’s different for your kids.”Ebron impresses early in season for North CarolinaEric Ebron reached up with his left hand, tapped the ball to himself and corralled it for a touchdown. The touchdown reception came late in the first quarter in North Carolina’s 28-20 loss against Georgia Tech.That was Ebron’s first touchdown of the year, but he’s been a consistent force at tight end all season. The 6-foot-4 Ebron has 13 receptions and exactly 200 receiving yards through three games.His 15.4 yards per reception ties him with Miami’s Clive Walford for most in the ACC among tight ends.“The guy is really talented,” North Carolina head coach Larry Fedora said at the teleconference. “I mean, he really is.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

  • Marcus Stroman on future with Blue Jays: ‘It doesn’t seem like’ he’ll be with Toronto long-term

    first_imgMarcus Stroman doesn’t think he’ll be with the Blue Jays “long term.”Toronto could look to move the 28-year-old ace before the deadline and the Yankees are reportedly interested in dealing for him. Stroman discussed the trade rumors Tuesday after his team’s 3-1 loss to the Angels. Mets’ Zack Wheeler addresses trade rumors: ‘It’s something that you don’t want to think about’ “I’m starting to really, truly understand the business of baseball and the business of sports,” Stroman said, via Sportsnet. “They’ve been throwing my name around in trade talks all the time. It doesn’t seem like I’m going to be signed here to a long-term deal. It’s just something you have to come to terms with.”Stroman allowed four hits and three runs in seven innings of work against Los Angeles. He struck out three and walked one while throwing 102 pitches.

I love everything about the country and I’m going to continue to go out there each and every start and just compete, compete, compete. Do everything I can to limit runs.“It seems like everyone’s saying I’m not going to be (here after the July 31 deadline). I don’t know. I’m doing everything in my power to keep that out of my head. The more (time) I spend thinking about that, the more it’s going to take away from me on the field.”Stroman holds a 4-9 record with a 3.23 ERA this season after his start Tuesday. He has spent his entire six-year career with the Blue Jays. Yankees trade rumors: New York has spoken with Blue Jays about Marcus Stroman “I’ve seen the whole cycle,” Stroman said. “The ups, the downs. I love being a Blue Jay. There’s no other team that I would have traded to start my career. The things that we’ve been through since I’ve been here. I feel like I embody the city of Toronto and take that passion out there with me every fifth day.”The Blue Jays finished play Tuesday with a 26-47 record, 13 1/2 games out of the second American League wild-card spot.last_img read more

  • 2017 Intra-Government Tourney Begins March 23

    first_imgThe 2017 edition of the Intra-Government Tournament, which brings the three branches of government together, is expected to kick-off on Thursday, March 23, the Ministry of Youth and Sports has announced.This year’s tournament will be played at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium and BYC’s Blue Field, both in Monrovia.In a letter to the Legislature, the first branch of government, the Ministry said under the auspices of the Bureau of Sports, it organizes the annually intra-governmental tournament with a goal to enhance socialcohesion and bridge the gap between top and lower level managers/employees in the public sector.“All affiliated institutions attached to the Executive, Judiciary and Legislative branches of government are eligible to participate in the two disciplines to be competed for in both categories (football and kickball) during the tournament, and a fee of US$500 is required for registration. “The registration process begins Friday, February 17 and ends Friday, March 17, at 4pm,” stated Deputy Sports Minister Henry B. Yonton Jr.“I look forward to solicit your cooperation in the interest of promoting physical fitness in the public sector…”In an exclusive interview with the Daily Observer via mobile phone, Minister Yonton said the draw for the tournament is scheduled for Monday, March 20.“We are expecting at least 36 institutions from the government; and the games will be played both at the ATS and the BYC’s Blue Field,” Minister Yonton said.It may be recalled that the football segment of the 2016 intra-government tourney was won by the Ministry of Information, Cultural and Tourism (MICAT), while the Judiciary won the kickball title.“The tournament also promotes physical fitness and recreation among civil servants and top government officials for the enhancement of good health, while at the same time promoting friendship and good sportsmanship,” he said.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
