Germany Beats Chile to Win Confederations Cup

first_imgWorld champions Germany secured a first Confederations Cup title after victory against Copa America winners Chile in yesterday’s final in St Petersburg, Russia.Lars Stindl hit the first-half winner following a mistake by Marcelo Diaz.Chile’s Arturo Vidal and Angelo Sagal both blazed over the bar in the closing stages.Germany’s Timo Werner was elbowed by Gonzalo Jara, who escaped with a yellow card despite the use of the Video Assistant Referee (VAR).Earlier, Adrien Silva scored an extra-time penalty as Portugal recovered from a goal down to beat Mexico 2-1 in the third-place play-off in Moscow.Luis Neto bundled into his own net to hand Mexico the lead, but Pepe stabbed home a stoppage-time equaliser to force an extra 30 minutes at Spartak Stadium.Having seen their team win the European Under-21 Championship in Poland on Friday, Germany’s fans can celebrate another impressive tournament victory 12 months before they launch the defence of their world title.Their success in Russia has been achieved without a number of players who helped beat Argentina in Rio three years ago to be crowned world champions.Goalkeeper Manuel Neuer, midfielders Mesut Ozil and Toni Kroos, and forward Thomas Muller have been rested before next summer’s World Cup.That has allowed a new generation to come to the fore.Midfielder Leon Goretzka, 22, has excelled while 21-year-old forward Timo Werner has also shown he has a bright international future ahead of him.It was Werner who seized on a moment of madness by Diaz to create the goal. The Chilean gave away possession on the edge of his own penalty area, allowing the RB Leipzig forward to square the ball for Stindl to tap home.Germany should have doubled their lead before the break after another error. Jara’s lapse in concentration let in Goretzka but Claudio Bravo did well to spread his frame and block.FIFA’s decision to trial the VAR system has led to a series of debatable moments throughout the tournament and the final provided one more.Referee Milorad Mazic used a video replay to watch Jara’s challenge on Werner, and decided the elbow across the face from the Chilean was worthy of a yellow card and not a red.The process took around four minutes, and while the technology was used properly, it shows that referee’s decisions are still open to interpretation and conjecture.In the group stages, six “game-changing decisions” were made using VAR, along with another 29 “major incidents” – according to FIFA’s Head Referee Massimo Busacca. That is 35 decisions in 12 games.There was controversy in Chile’s semi-final win, when Portugal defender Jose Fonte appeared to foul Francisco Silva in the box, but the referee did not award a penalty – or ask to see the incident again.In the group game between Germany and Cameroon, the referee sent off the wrong player after watching a replay, before correcting the mistake following a second viewing.And in Mexico’s group game against New Zealand, there was a long delay late in the game as the referee watched back a melee between players. He initially booked one player, before stopping the game again and booking two more.  Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

No. 2 Syracuse’s overlooked defense carries Orange into matchup with No. 3 Florida

first_imgSelena Lasota ran up field with the ball following a Syracuse foul on Sunday. The Orange jumped out to a three-goal lead in the first three minutes, and the leading goal scorer for then-No. 5 Northwestern was trying to sneak in a rapid counter-attack score. She seemed to have a wide-open path to the goal, but then the green turn was filled with white jerseys and grey sticks.The suddenly flustered Wildcat tried to lob a pass toward a teammate up ahead, but she overthrew her badly and the ball rolled out of bounds. And just like that, the Orange regained possession.“I think they’re a very physical team and they definitely work on being aggressive in the style of defense they play,” Kelly Amonte Hiller, Northwestern’s head coach, said after SU beat her team 16-12.With All-Americans and Tewaaraton award watch lists members Kayla Treanor and Halle Majorana, it’s easy to focus on Syracuse’s potent offense. But defense has arguably been the No. 2 Orange’s (5-0) backbone this year, and it will again be key against No. 3 Florida’s (4-0) high-powered offense at noon in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday. The Gators have scored 14.75 goals per game, which ranks 12th in the nation heading into the matchup.The Orange plays a zone defense predicated on pressuring its opponent’s attack. If there’s not a clear opportunity, the defenders don’t always risk their position to try and intercept the ball. The unit just wants to make sure the other team always know that it’s there.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We want to put a lot of pressure on the offense, kind of chaos is all we want,” redshirt senior defender Mallory Vehar said, “we don’t want people to get comfortable.”On Feb. 21, Syracuse played two games in one day against Wagner at noon and Marist at night. The starting defensive line only played the first half of each game. Wagner only scored two goals in the half. Marist tallied just one.Syracuse returned its entire starting defensive group form last year, with no player younger than a junior as part of that group.“We’re not starting from scratch,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “We’re just elevating their knowledge and understanding of what we’re trying to get done.”Gait and several Orange players also credited new goalie Allie Murray for its goals against average of 6.8, which is currently the 14th best mark in the country. Murray’s play as a goalie mirrors that of the defenders. She often steps well out of the goal circle in order to fight for ground balls or to take away shooting angles away from players. Gait said the Notre Dame transfer’s style of play is exactly the kind of approach he wants from a goalie anchoring this defense.The same physicality also earned Syracuse a whopping 53 fouls against Northwestern. A week earlier, when the Orange faced Marist, SU was called for 39 fouls while the Red Foxes were called for just eight.But Syracuse is unapologetic about its physicality. After the Marist game, Majorana and Treanor started laughing when they saw the discrepancy in foul calls. After the Northwestern game, Gait said that it didn’t matter that his team was called for so many fouls, that it was just the flow of the game. Junior defender Haley McDonnell even thinks that it’s a key part of the unit’s success.And against a strong offensive team like the Gators, the Orange is confident it will be able to make the Florida attacks uncomfortable.“We don’t have any elaborate plans,” McDonnell said. “We stick to what we know and we’re good at that.” Comments Published on February 29, 2016 at 8:00 pm Contact Tomer: [email protected] | @tomer_langer Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Thurston County Celebrates National Public Health Week: What is Public Health?

first_imgFacebook26Tweet0Pin0Submitted by Thurston CountyIt’s National Public Health Week! Every year the first full week of April celebrates the work done nationally and locally in public health. This year, because of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are hearing daily about pieces of the work that public health does. But have you ever wondered, what is Public Health?Photo courtesy: Thurston CountyThe CDC defines public health as the science of protecting and improving the health of people and their communities. This is done a variety of ways including education, policy-making, and research for disease and injury prevention. According to the American Public Health Association, public health “promotes and protects the health of people and the communities where they live, work, and play.” To make that possible, public health looks at the causes of poor health and disease risk among individuals and within our communities.Where people live, learn, work, worship, and play affects them, their health, and their life expectancy. The work of public health spans across many different sectors, partnering with public and private organizations to help improve overall health. Some examples of the types of jobs that we see in public health include emergency preparedness, health educators, food inspectors, disease investigators, community planners, epidemiologists, sanitarians, and public policymakers.Sometimes our local public health department is confused with the Washington State Department of Health (DOH). We work very closely with DOH but we are a separate health jurisdiction that is locally governed by the Thurston County Board of Health. This week we will be highlighting the work of several different areas of public health that the Thurston County Public Health and Social Services Department does. You will learn more about:Disease ControlFood SafetyVeteran’s ServicesHazardous WasteDrinking WaterPublic Health NursesDuring this time of the global pandemic, these areas of public health are still working providing critical services to the community. All areas of our local Public Health Department work together to keep our community safe and healthy!last_img read more

HEAVILY FAVORED ONE LUCKY DANE MAKES LEAD & DEMOLISHES ALLOWANCE FOES BY 9 ¾ LENGTHS, STAMPING HIMSELF A DERBY HOPEFUL IN THE PROCESS

first_imgIDLE SINCE BREEDERS’ CUP JUVENILE, BAFFERT TRAINEE GETS FLAT MILE IN 1:35.48 UNDER BEJARANO                 ARCADIA, Calif. (March 19, 2015)–Idle since running sixth in the Grade I Breeders’ Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita Nov. 1, Bob Baffert’s heavily favored One Lucky Dane came off the bench swinging on Thursday, as he demolished four rival sophomores in Santa Anita’s $58,000 allowance feature, winning by 9 ¾ lengths under Rafael Bejarano while covering one mile in 1:35.48.            Breaking from the outside post position five, One Lucky Dane was sent to the lead aggressively by Bejarano, setting fractions of 23.89, 47.84, 1:11.34 and 1:23.15.            “I thought the number three (Commute, with Elvis Trujillo) was the only other speed and when he broke slow, I put my horse on the lead,” said Bejarano.  “There was no competition for him today.  He was just breezing the whole way and he was much the best.”            An imposing bay colt by Lookin At Lucky, out of the Boston Harbor mare, Echo Harbor, One Lucky Dane was a runaway 9 ½ length maiden special weight winner going a mile two starts back on Oct. 4, and thus registered his second win from five starts Thursday.  Off at 2-5, he paid $2.80, $2.10 and $2.10.            “We were hoping he would do something like that, but he’s coming off a layoff,” said Baffert.  “We were disappointed after the Breeders’ Cup.  We freshened him up, and here he is…I was hoping this would prep him for something real big, so hopefully, it will.”            Owned by Michael Lund Petersen, One Lucky Dane collected $34,800 for the win, boosting his earnings to $92,400.            Off at 7-1 with Kent Desormeaux up, Harmonic sat a close fifth into the far turn and just edged Commute on the wire by a nose for second money.  Harmonic paid $3.20 and $2.20.            Although he broke cleanly, Commute, who was trying two turns for the first time in his third career start, bobbled shortly after the break but was quickly into contention around the Club House turn.  Ridden by Elvis Trujillo and trained by Mark Casse, Commute drew within a half length of One Lucky Dane approaching the quarter pole, but was no match for him thereafter.            The second choice at 2-1, Commute paid $2.10 to show.            Note:  Baffert also noted following the race that another of his talented 3-year-olds, Lord Nelson, who won the Grade II, seven furlong San Vicente Stakes on Feb. 1, and was most recently fourth in the Grade II, 1 1/16 miles San Felipe Stakes March 7, will not run as originally planned in Sunday’s  Grade III Sunland Derby in New Mexico.            “He just ran and I entered him to see if he would bounce back, but he’s…not quite as sharp as I’d want him to be,” said Baffert, who declined to say what might be next for the son of Pulpit.last_img read more
