Led by current Australian Women’s Open squad members Ashleigh Dobbins, Jessica McCall and Nicole Beck, the Wollongong side are now looking for the double, next month’s New South Wales State Cup title. The Devils were on the scoreboard early, when Nicole Beck scored a length of the field intercept touchdown to give her side a 1-0 lead. Jessica McCall made it 2-0 one minute later, capitalising on a penalty close to their attacking line, diving over to give her side their second touchdown. Back-to-back penalties gave Wollongong good field position and in the ninth minute a Nicole Beck long ball gave Leah Hayes her first touchdown, and gave the Devils a 3-0 lead. Strong Wollongong defence kept the Magpies off the scoreboard until the 15th minute, when Nicky Albery dived over to score following back-to-back sets of six to take the score to 3-1. Wollongong’s Kristen Whittacker scored her first touchdown on the half-time siren to give her side a 4-1 lead at the break. It only took two minutes into the second half for the Devils to further extend their lead, when a Melissa McCall long ball set up Hayes for her second touchdown, to take the score to 5-1. Australian Women’s Open squad member Nicole McHugh led by example for Wests in the fourth minute, diving over the line to bring her team back to within three touchdowns, 5-2. Whittaker scored her second touchdown of the game one minute later, when the Devils created an overlap to take a 6-2 lead. The Devils soon took their lead out to five touchdowns when Bianca Mounsey dived over in the corner in the eighth minute to give her side a 7-2 advantage. Some fancy footwork by Whittaker in the 11th minute gave her a hat trick of touchdowns and helped further extend her teams lead, 8-2. A good half run set up the Magpies’ Tara Mohi to score in the 16th minute off the back of a penalty close to their attacking line to bring the score back to 8-3. Two quick touchdowns to the Devils, through Rachel Beck and Melissa McCall, gave their team a 10-3 lead. Wests’ Elisha Dougal scored in the 19th minute to bring the margin back to six touchdowns, but it wasn’t enough, with the Devils taking a 10-4 win. Wollongong Captain, Ashleigh Dobbins, was ecstatic about the win, paying tribute to her side that has played together for several years. “We’re very excited, we’ve played together for a long time, since we were 15 or 16, so we’ve been together for a long time.”“Last week was amazing, we were scared that last week we played our grand final, but we had another one in us and it gives us confidence for State Cup as well,” Dobbins said. “We’re great friends inside and outside of Touch so we are really, really happy.”The Devils’ Jessica McCall was proud of her team’s performance and can’t wait to go for the double in Port Macquarie at the start of next month. “I think it’s just amazing, this feeling isn’t going to go away for a couple of weeks. It’s such a good lead up to State Cup, it’s probably the best lead up we’ve ever had. So I’m looking forward to going for the double,” McCall said.Men’s Premier LeagueThe Hornsby Lions have beaten a fast finishing Penrith Panthers side to win the 2010 Men’s Premier League Vawdon Cup final.The Lions, who finished fifth in the regular season, won back the title they last won in 2008, taking the game 7-6. Hornsby was the first team to score, with Nathan Wong diving over the line in the first minute to give his side a 1-0 lead. Penrith hit back in the next minute, with Matt Moylan sliding over the line to level the scores at 1-all.Hornsby’s Tom Hillard gave his side the lead in the sixth minute, when the Lions capitalised on an overlap, with Hillard scoring in the corner. The Panthers levelled the score four minutes later, when Matt Moylan set up captain Nick Good’s touchdown to bring the game to two touchdowns all.  Hornsby hit back in the 11th minute, with Joseph Tarau scoring, and they took their lead out to two touchdowns when Hillard scored his second to give his side a 4-2 advantage. The teams traded touchdowns in the final minutes of the first half, with the Panthers Dean McKechine scoring in the 19th minute, while the Lions hit back in the final minute of the half through Michael Abood to take a two touchdown lead into half time, 5-3. The Lions were in again in just the second minute of the second half, when some good footwork from captain Dylan Hennessey gave them a three touchdown advantage.Two touchdowns in the space of three minutes put Penrith back into the game, with Nick Good and Daniel Springfield scoring, to hit back to within one touchdown. Potatau Berryman scored for the Lions in the 14th minute to take his side’s lead to two touchdowns, before the Panthers’ Dean Springfield’s touchdown in the next set brought the game to seven touchdowns to six. The Panthers tried hard to level the score in the dying minutes, with plenty of possession close to the line, but strong Hornsby defence kept them out, with the Lions taking the title with the one touchdown win. Hennessey, who was named Player of the Final, was proud of his team’s achievements, but admits they were lucky to take the title over a strong Penrith side. He says that the title win was due to the side playing as a team. “It’s our second win now, we are missing two of our boys so we just came up and lifted for them, we were lucky to get away with it.”“With our team we don’t know if we are going to play on the day or not or if the boys are going to turn up but today we turned up and decided to play so we were lucky with that,” he said. The win is a good lead up for the Hornsby side who are looking to put back-to-back titles together at this year’s New South Wales State Cup after winning the title over the Panthers in 2009. “It would be sensational (to win), we are not even thinking about that at the moment, we’ve just got to get to the semis and the finals and hopefully we can get there,” Hennessey said.last_img read more

Jamia Millia university as shooting destination becoming favourite among filmmakers

first_imgNew Delhi: With its huge campus and large auditoriums, the Jamia Millia Islamia is increasingly becoming a favourite option for filmmakers to shoot their projects. While the Delhi University continues to be a favourite with Bollywood, the filmmakers say they usually avoid going to the Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU) as securing permissions there is a tedious process. According to sources, the reason behind the JMI opening its doors for shoots can also be attributed to fund cuts by the government. Also Read – Gurdwara Bangla Sahib bans single use plastic They said the varsity administration has become lenient with shoots and that has helped the filmmakers. Professor Majid Jamil, the secretary of Jamia Teachers’ Association, said the varieties have been asked to generate their own funds and efforts are underway to generate own fund resources. “For the last two years, the varsity has been facing issues in paying salaries of teachers. The varsity had to even break its fixed deposits to pay the salaries of teachers. Every university is facing these issues and most of the research and development activities are being hampered,” he added. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murder The grand finale of ‘Bigg Boss 12’ was shot in one of the auditoriums of JMI, while a film titled ‘Doordarshan’ starring Mahie Gill was recently shot in the campus. An advertisement of Subway India was also shot in one of the classrooms of the varsity where the makers spent close to Rs 2-2.5 lakh in renovating the classroom according to their requirement, the sources said. Filmmaker Imtiaz Ali recently visited the campus for a recce for his film ‘Love Aaj Kal 2’ since he wanted to shoot a scene in a science laboratory but since the varsity’s lab did not fit his requirements, he will now be shooting that particular portion in Mumbai, the sources added. The varsity will soon play host to Kangana Ranaut starrer ‘Panga’, the sources said. A Malayalam film was also recently shot in the campus. “The campus of JMI is huge and we do not have to worry about procuring additional security as we can shoot without worrying about our actors getting mobbed. The varsity has a strong security in place,” said Line Producer Javed Khan. He secured permission for shooting the film ‘Doorsdarshan’ and also the commercial for Subway India. Khan said the varsity provides several options through its auditoriums, classrooms and lawns. “Every centre of the varsity has a different look. We can even recreate government offices in the varsity,” he added. While Khan did not talk about the rates charged by the varsity, he said the JMI offers an economical option for shoots. He said the Delhi University is more expensive than the JMI. The sources claimed that shooting in the JMI costs Rs 50,000 per day and the varsity gives concession if the film has a social message. The Delhi University, with its ambience, despite the high rates has been a favourite with Bollywood. Shahid Kapoor starrer ‘Kabir Singh’ was recently shot in Miranda House while Amazon Prime’s web series ‘Breathe 2’ featuring Abhishek Bachchan and Amit Sadh was shot in Kirori Mal College, the sources said. “In the Delhi University, one mostly has to shoot during vacation time as there is always a threat of the actors getting mobbed but if there is an urgent requirement, the colleges give permission even on working days,” said Line Producer Navmeet Singh. Singh said colleges like Kirori Mal, Hansraj and Miranda House are quite open for allowing shoots while it is difficult to procure permission to shoot in the St Stephen’s College. The sources said the cost of shooting in Kirori Mal college, Hansraj college and Miranda House is anywhere between Rs 2-2.5 lakh. Arjun Kapoor-Shraddha Kapoor starrer ‘Half Girlfriend’ was shot in the St Stephen’s College and the sources claimed that the makers had to shell out Rs 3 lakh for each day they shot in the college. The sources claimed that the JNU is not very open to the idea of film shoots and even filmmakers prefer to stay away from shooting there. “We have applied for permission to the JNU earlier but have not got a response. The perception of the varsity is that it is very political and filmmakers prefer to stay away from shooting there,” said Singh. Even for the film ‘Raanjhana’, in which Sonam Kapoor and Abhay Deol played JNU students, the varsity was recreated in some other university in Noida.last_img read more

Ohio State mens gymnastics dominates at Big Ten championships

Credit: Luke Swartz | Lantern reporterSt. John Arena played host to the Big Ten Men’s Gymnastics Championships over the weekend, and the hosting team stole the show, grabbing the team title among a trove of other accolades.  The No. 3 Ohio State men’s gymnastics team capped off a thrilling Friday night with a team championship, while also boasting two of the events’ top all-around scorers from a pair of Olympic hopefuls, redshirt sophomore Sean Melton and freshman Alec Yoder. Then, the following night, the Buckeyes collected all three of the major end-of-the-year awards and multiple event titles. “I’m glad (the guys) have stuck with the process of what we’re trying to implement, and I think it’s very sweet to get these results,” said OSU coach Rustam Sharipov. “I think it’s a great reward to see them happy and, of course, they make me happy.”OSU, which now owns 13 Big Ten championships, last won the conference title in 2007.  Coincidentally, this marks the first time since that year that the event was hosted by the Buckeyes. A fitting coda to the big weekend came when the Scarlet and Gray had multiple individuals recognized for their successful seasons, including Sharipov, who won the Big Ten Coach of the Year award. Melton received the conference’s gymnast of the year award, while Yoder earned Big Ten Freshman of the Year. The All-Big Ten teams were also announced. Melton and Yoder took home first-team honors, while sophomore Seth Delbridge and senior Alex Johnson received spots on the second team. Johnson was also recognized with the Sportsmanship Award.Melton finished first in three separate events on Friday night, including rings (15.850), floor exercise (15.400) and parallel bars (15.500).  Yoder also put up impressive numbers on the night, finishing second on the pommel horse (15.250), fourth on rings (15.150) and fifth on high bar (14.100).Melton, who is a member of the U.S. Senior National Team, earned the gold medal for his all-around performance, scoring a six-event high score of 89.75 en route to his first Big Ten all-around win. He is the first OSU men’s gymnast to win the all-around title since 2004.  Yoder, meanwhile, finished in second place, putting up a six-event score of 87.55.Despite being recognized for his solo performance, Melton remains focused on the success of the team. “Anything individual is just another plus, but my main goal is the team title,” Melton said. “I’m going to enjoy it and I’m excited about it, but the team title is my No. 1 priority.” In the individual championships, which were held on Saturday, the Buckeyes grabbed three event titles. Melton won the parallel bars (16.175), which is a new school record, and the floor exercise (15.450), while Yoder won on the pommel horse (15.225). OSU also had three second-place finishes, with Melton on the rings (15.100), Delbridge in the vault (13.325) and Johnson on the high bar (14.550).Yoder said he finds pride in the team success and individual accolades while also taking in the emotion of the big stage.“This is surreal, this is something that I’ve been dreaming about for a long time,” Yoder said. “I’m just so proud of this team and (I’m) just amazed with this whole experience.”The Buckeyes are next set to have the benefit of competing on their home floor once again as they host the NCAA Men’s Gymnastics Championships. OSU looks poised for a successful showing after dominating the conference championships, as six of the Big Ten teams it defeated ranked in the top 10 nationally. The event is scheduled to be held April 15 and 16 at St. John Arena. read more

Gerrard discusses Merseyside and Glasgow derbies

first_imgRangers manager Steven Gerrard talks about the high stakes involved that make derby games special occasions.The former Liverpool captain took part in his fair share of Merseyside derbies during his time at Anfield, with little camaraderie displayed on or off the pitch when the Reds face Everton.The clashes between Liverpool and Everton are often dubbed ‘the friendly rivalry’ but Gerrard insists there’s no chance the Glasgow derby between Rangers and Celtic getting such a tag.“There were certain times when we were both pushing for the top four and there were some juicy ones in there,” Gerrard said, according to Evening Times.“But form and where you lay in the table seemed to go out of the window. It was about bragging rights, the build-up and it just felt different as a fixture.”“That’s how this has felt. More people stop you around the city. You have a little bit more verbals on the street and some more good luck messages.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“That’s just the way it is. It’s a huge fixture and will never change.”“There was certainly hostility. Certainly to me, anyway. But that’s what makes them – the banter, the rivalry.”“I used to go out of my way to come and watch these games when I was on the outside. To now be part of it is a great feeling.”last_img read more
