first_imgArsenal boss Arsene Wenger felt his side’s 1-0 defeat at Stoke was a “massive setback” for their Barclays Premier League title challenge. The Gunners conceded in the 76th minute when Jon Walters’ flick struck Laurent Koscielny’s arm in the box and referee Mike Jones awarded a penalty, which the Potters forward stepped up and converted himself. Wenger described the goal as a “nice gift” for Stoke from Jones, but was also in no doubt that Arsenal had not been good enough in attack during the contest. Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud in particular was on the end of some rough-looking treatment during the game, with Stoke midfielders Glenn Whelan and Charlie Adam appearing to stand on the France international. Wenger after the match made reference to the Potters’ physicality, but was reluctant to speak about individual incidents. He said: “You have to give credit to Stoke. They defended well, with resilience, and made the game very physical. “We knew that would be the case before the game, though. They have the highest number of fouls in the Premier League. But we didn’t cope well enough with it and at the end of the day we were punished.” Asked about the challenges on Giroud, Wenger added: “I don’t want to talk about the referee. I have nothing to say about that. “I am long enough in the game to make my own judgement and I prefer to concentrate on our own performance.” When questioned about Adam in that context, Stoke manager Mark Hughes said it was the first he had heard about it, adding: “It would be a shame if people highlight that as it wasn’t that type of game.” Hughes, whose team are now six points clear of the relegation zone, was keen to praise the Potters’ efforts in achieving what was only their second victory in 11 Premier League games. Reflecting on a result that sees Stoke’s record at home against Arsenal extend to one loss in the last eight, and follows other notable victories this term in triumphs against Chelsea and Manchester United, Hughes said: “The stars were aligned and it came together. I thought we were excellent on the day to be perfectly honest. “We were up against a very accomplished Arsenal side with a lot of talent and lot of ability, but we matched that and in the end won the game courtesy of a penalty. “I’ve been made aware that maybe Arsenal felt it wasn’t a just penalty, but I’m a bit bemused by that as I thought it was clear-cut to most people. “Regardless of that, we deserved the victory anyway by virtue of what we produced in our general play. All in all it was a very satisfying performance.” Walters has seen several of his penalties fail to hit the back of the net, and regarding his success this time out, Hughes said: “That is what you get from Jon – he is mentally very strong. “He takes responsibility every day so it didn’t surprise me that he grabbed the ball, he wasn’t going to give it to anyone else. “I was really pleased for him that he was able to dispatch it as it was a pressure kick. “Charlie (Adam) wasn’t too happy that I took him off as he sensed he would get a penalty. But he will get over it.” And with the result, plus leaders Chelsea’s 3-1 win at Fulham, meaning Arsenal are now four points adrift of the Blues with each having 10 top-flight games to go, Wenger said: “It is not slightly worrying – it is a big worry for us to lose a game like that. It is a massive setback. “It was a good defensive performance and, overall, we were unlucky to lose this game. But offensively we didn’t create enough. “Our offensive game was poor, considering our standards. And, at the end of the day, we didn’t score because of that. “We conceded a goal which was a nice gift from the referee, but that can happen. “He is one yard away – how can he take his hand away? He has no time to take his hand away from the ball. “He had no intention at all, but we cannot influence the decision of the referee and I feel going forward we were not good enough to create chances, and that is why we were punished.” Wenger insisted his team are “not fragile at all”, and, on the prospect of them bouncing back, he said: “I’m not worried. “But we didn’t produce the performance we wanted and to win a title, when you are expected to perform, you have to perform. It is as simple as that.” Press Associationlast_img read more

first_imgSam Arslanian | Daily TrojanFrom the second the Vegas Golden Knights and the Washington Capitals entered the Stanley Cup Finals, it was destined to be a memorable series. The Western Conference presented its best team in the Vegas Golden Knights. A year ago, the Golden Knights barely existed. As an expansion team in the 2017-2018 season, they were heavily criticized by hockey fans claiming that the team would fail as an organization. “Las Vegas is not a hockey town,” said pessimistic hockey fans. However, a solid expansion draft landed players like goalie Marc-Andre Fleury, defenseman Jason Garrison and offensemen William Karlsson. These players, bolstered by the hockey expertise of head coach Gerard Gallant allowed for the Golden Knights to make a deep-run into the postseason.On the other hand, the Washington Capitals represented the Eastern Conference in their second Stanley Cup Finals. Their first appearance came in 1997-98 in which they fell short of my Detroit Red Wings. The Caps franchise player Alexander Ovechkin has been with the organization since he first entered the NHL in 2005. Since then, he has been one of the most dominant and admired players in the league.Growing up, Ovi was one of my hockey role models. My fascination with him spawned when I saw a video of Ovechkin scoring a goal from his back in a game against the Phoenix Coyotes. When 99 percent of people thought the play was over, Ovechkin had other thoughts. The determination and perseverance he possesses are forces to be reckoned with.As a neutral fan in this situation, I didn’t know which team I wanted to get behind. Do I root for the first-year Cinderella team in the Golden Knights or do I root for Ovechkin and the Capitals? I couldn’t find an answer to that question throughout the series. It wasn’t until after the Capitals bested the Golden Knights four-to-one that I had my answer. Following Game 5, Ovechkin was presented with the Conn Smythe Trophy, awarded to the most valuable player in the Stanley Cup playoffs — a well deserved award. After receiving his MVP trophy, he was the first person to hoist the greatest trophy in professional sports, the Stanley Cup. As he lifted the 35-pound prize, Ovechkin let out one of the most triumphant screams I had ever heard. The only time he wasn’t screaming was when he was kissing the trophy. As he skated around the arena with the cup in hand, tears came to his eyes and fans of both teams cheered in celebration for Ovi. At that moment, the answer to my seemingly unsolvable question was obvious. I wanted Ovechkin to win. There are few athletes in the world of professional sports that can maintain the amount of perseverance and dedication Ovechkin has demonstrated throughout his career. Despite coming short of a championship in 12 consecutive seasons, the Capitals finished first place in their division seven times under Ovechkin. That is a frustrating statistic for a captain to swallow. Take the Los Angeles Dodgers, for example. They mount a dominant season, have high postseason expectations set on them, make a deep playoff run and they fail short. It always makes me smile to see NHL players celebrate with the Cup in their hometowns following the championship. There is something so pure about it. Walking around, living your daily life, lugging a 35-pound trophy. Every Cup winner does this; its a way to show off and remember your hard work and dedication. Throughout my years as a hockey fan, I have seen some outrageous pictures and videos with the cup, but nothing can top the media that came from Ovechkin’s tour. He had a full day with the Cup, performing a “keg stand” on the Cup and then jumping into a fountain. Ovi capped off the night by saying goodnight to the Cup and spending the night with Lord Stanley’s Cup right by his side.An underdog story always makes me happy. Seeing a team come out of nowhere and steal a title is one of the most exciting moments in sports. But for me, a story of dedication and perseverance like Ovechkin’s will top an underdog story every time.Sam Arslanian is a sophomore majoring in journalism.

first_img20 Sep 2015 Champion club Birstall will seek Euro glory The three-man team from Birstall Golf Club made up nine shots to claim the title of English Champion Club – and set a date to seek European glory.Chris Webb, Jack Merry and Steve Sansome beat the halfway leaders, City of Newcastle, on countback after both teams finished on 11-over par at Brancepeth Castle in Durham. Birstall’s second round total was just four-over par, while their rivals were 13-over.Now they will represent England in the European Champion Club tournament in Cyprus in October.Keith Marston, president of the Leicestershire & Rutland club, said: “This is the biggest thing that has happened to Birstall in our 114-year history. I’m very, very proud of them, it’s been a very special and emotional day.”After the first round, the team were a combined seven-over par and nine shots behind the City of Newcastle – but they weren’t daunted. “We knew if we played well we would have a good chance,” said Sansome, who is a past winner of the English mid-amateur championship.He and Merry duly obliged with rounds of two-under 68 and 67 respectively, but Webb feared he had let the team down when he scored 79. However, his par on the last proved crucial.“I had the biggest sigh of relief when we found we had actually won. It was a very, very long 45 minutes and I couldn’t look at the scoreboard,” he said.Merry, meanwhile, had the low-score of the day with his three-under 67. “I played quite solid and then had three birdies in the last five holes,” he said. “I’ve never played competitively overseas so it will be fantastic to go to Cyprus.”Sansome summed up for them all when he said: “We are really thrilled, absolutely delighted. We knew we had a good team – but there’s a lot of other good teams here.” All three players hold plus handicaps.City of Newcastle, Northumberland, had to settle for the runners-up spot, just as they did in 2009. One shot behind them, on 12-over, were third placed Workington from Cumbria.City of Newcastle’s Phil Ridden, who went round in one-over par today, had the compensation of topping the individual leaderboard on four-under, one ahead of Merry. Joshua McMahon of Redditch also beat par for 36 holes, finishing on one-under.Click here for full scoresCaption: (from left) Chris Webb, Jack Merry and Steve Sansome with the English Champion Club trophy (image © Leaderboard Photography)last_img read more
