Baggies stun United

first_img Fellaini did think he had equalised when he poked home Nani’s low cross five minutes from time but the effort was ruled out for offside. The result, at the start of what was supposed to be an easy run of fixtures, is a shattering blow to new manager David Moyes, whose team have now slipped six points off the pace in the early stages of the title race. More importantly, United have now lost half their league matches and find themselves firmly in mid-table, with the faith the club’s supporters vowed to have in their new boss already starting to fray judging by the boos that accompanied the final whistle. There could hardly have been a greater contrast between the drab fare served up in the first-half and the 10-goal thriller between the sides that served as a fitting epitaph to Sir Alex Ferguson’s managerial career in May. Whereas the spectacular show at The Hawthorns had supporters on the edge of their seats, this soporific show had them slumped. United were on top, as expected. But their efforts were sporadic. Rooney, who retained the captain’s armband, had one header saved by Boaz Myhill and sent another soaring over the bar. Shinji Kagawa’s scheming presented a chance for Alex Buttner, but his scuffed shot was blocked. Manchester United slumped to their third Barclays Premier League defeat of the season as West Brom recorded a 2-1 win – their first triumph at Old Trafford since 1978. Second-half goals from Morgan Amalfitano and Saido Berahino proved enough for the delirious Baggies despite Wayne Rooney netting for the fifth time in as many games. Not even the introductions of Robin van Persie and Marouane Fellaini after the interval could swing the contest back in United’s favour. The nearest United came was when Kagawa countered after some intelligent hold-up play from Javier Hernandez, cut inside Gareth McAuley, then picked out Anderson with an excellent cross. It did seem an offside flag had been raised against the Brazilian. If so, it was a bad decision. Not that it mattered in the end as the midfielder’s diving header crashed back off the bar before he hooked a volley over. Yet, for all their dominance of possession, United still lived dangerously at the other end. Substitute Berahino flicked a header just wide from Amalfitano’s cross. He then fired an effort straight at David de Gea in the last dregs of the opening period when really he should have done much better. Moyes cannot have been that impressed as when his side re-appeared after the interval, Kagawa had been replaced by 18-year-old Adnan Januzaj The teenager had no time to make an impact before the visitors seized the initiative. Large question marks hung over the United defence as West Brom celebrated their goal though. For, after nicking possession in front of the dug-outs on halfway, Amalfitano was allowed to stride directly towards goal, brushing off a couple of half-hearted attempts to stop him. Faced with only De Gea to beat, the Frenchman showed admirable composure, lifting his shot over the goalkeeper and in. Moyes immediately called Van Persie off the bench. But before the Dutchman could be introduced, Rooney had levelled. Yet again it was a free-kick. This time from about 25 yards, which the in-form England forward curled expertly home. It was Rooney’s fifth goal in as many games and with Van Persie ushered on a few minutes later, Old Trafford expected a routine end to proceedings. The game did not pan out that way though. Sensing their opponents are not the force of old, West Brom went hunting more. And after a couple of close calls – including a Jonas Olsson header that hit the underside of the crossbar – they duly went ahead again as Amalfitano laid a superb pass into the path of Berahino, who found the bottom corner. As Moyes had already introduced Fellaini, there was no more he could do other than hope for a change in fortune. It did not arrive. Rather than one of those stirring comebacks this ground had seen so many of, West Brom actually held their own. Indeed, Stephane Sessegnon nearly made the damage even worse, only to slice his shot when glory beckoned. Fellaini had a goal ruled out for offside before Rooney’s late free-kick was punched clear by Myhill and Januzaj flashed an injury-time effort wide. Press Associationlast_img read more

UW to host ITA Championships

first_imgThe top 15 women’s tennis teams in the nation will travel to Madison for the ITA Team Indoor Championship Feb. 13-16 at the Nielson Tennis Stadium.The Badgers are hosting this event for the 22nd time, and as the host they are privileged to face the toughest competition in NCAA. The team will face off against No. 9 Duke on Friday and will play two subsequent matches throughout the weekend.The Nielson Tennis Stadium has been home to this tournament since 1988, and the team is proud its courts are on display at the highest level. No. 1 singles player, Elizabeth Carpenter, loves that this prestigious tournament visits her stadium every year.“It’s great to have everyone come to our home courts, our atmosphere, our weather,” she said. “It’s really fun to have everyone come here and see how we do it. It’s awesome.”“They get to take some pride in their school and their facility,” UW head coach Brian Fleishman added.The team praised the university in its efforts to continue supporting women’s athletics at UW, particularly the tennis program.“The University of Wisconsin Athletic Department has committed themselves to women’s athletics,” Fleishman said. “This is their way of saying, ‘Women’s athletics is strong, it needs to be supported around the country, and more schools need to have tournaments like these, in any sport, not just tennis.’”“Wisconsin has a great athletic program, and we really host the tournament well, and I think we’ve hosted it well every year,” Carpenter added.During the four-day tournament, Wisconsin will face some of the best competition the country has to offer, but the Badgers aren’t intimidated.“We’re going to be surrounded by amazing players so it’s basically the best opportunity you could ever ask for,” Carpenter said. “Everyone should go out there and play with all their heart, just go for it with the mentality of you have nothing to lose.”The No. 68 Badgers are not scared of the competition. Instead, they see playing against quality teams as a privilege.“It provides us with three quality matches we normally wouldn’t have gotten on our schedule,” Fleishman said. “It allows us to see where we are, what we need to work on, and where we want to go.”The women’s team will play its first match against No. 8 Duke Friday morning at 9 a.m.“We’re looking forward to playing Duke, and we’ll go out there and leave it on the court on Friday and see where it takes us,” Fleishman said. “Win or lose, I think we’ll become a better team.The tournament will include the nation’s 18 best squads. All of these teams will be competing for the first time against one another, and while the top teams are expected to advance, the field is so talent-rich that any team could come out on top.“All these girls have intentions of being top 15 players nationally and of making this team a top 15 team, and they’re going to see it this weekend and be able to measure themselves up, see where we stand.”last_img read more

Tough Texas matchups perfect for young softball squad

first_imgMeghan McIntosh went 6-8 for the Badgers last season with a 6.61 ERA. McIntosh and UW are set to start their season at Texas State.[/media-credit]Just beginning her first year as Wisconsin softball head coach, Yvette Healy is optimistic as her young team faces Texas State Thursday in Austin, Texas, to begin the 2011 season.Following their game against Texas State (2-3), the Badgers will take on No. 15 Texas (3-0) Thursday in the 2011 Time Warner Cable Texas Invitation.Texas State will be a tough test for the inexperienced Badgers. The Bobcats have won the Southland Conference regular season championship the past three seasons and feature back-to-back SLC Pitcher of the Year Chandler Hall.In her press conference Monday, Healey noted that the Badgers matchup nicely against the tough Texas State team, making it a good segue into UW’s match against Big 12 Pitcher of the Year Blaire Luna and the Texas Longhorns.After setting or tying 22 individual and team records last season and adding a talented crop of six freshmen to the roster, Healy is excited about the season. She saw improvements from Wisconsin’s play and level of commitment during the fall exhibition schedule.“You open up in Texas against Texas,” Healy said. “We’re going to have our hands full out there, but so far what we’ve been focusing on has just been getting a little better everyday. Trying to really get the kids to buy in and play hard and compete, and we’ve been happy to see how hard they are competing.”Wisconsin improved to 20-31 last season after winning just 15 games the previous two seasons, but with only four juniors and seniors on the roster and a new coach, the Badgers will have to undergo a great deal of growth this season. Healy said the team is anxious to get started and see how it matches up.She also believes her young group of players has more talent and dedication to improving than what Wisconsin’s current RPI ranking of 170 out of 290 and record from the past couple of seasons would suggest.The Badgers return eight of nine starters from last year’s squad, including leading hitters Molly Spence and Jennifer Krueger. Spence was awarded second-team All-Region honors along with the team’s MVP and Best Offensive Player awards. The sophomore set a UW freshman record with a .347 batting average and set school records for 41 RBI in a season, seven in one game and 11 multi-RBI games in 2010.While Spence and Krueger are recovering from surgery over the summer, Krueger is expected to see some playing time in Texas but Spence will not be back in the lineup until Wisconsin’s March 5 road trip to Florida State. Krueger stole a single-season record 29 bases last season to become the Badgers’ all-time leader in stolen bases with 55.“It helps they have experience, but it’s not going to be an easy track,” Healy said. “We’ve got some freshmen that are impact kids that we’re really excited about. Some kids that are going to help us right away that will get a ton of playing experience.”The Badgers have high expectations for freshman pitchers Amanda Najdek and Cassandra Darrah after losing three of their four pitchers last year. Sophomore Meghan McIntosh will have to set a strong example for the team’s new pitching staff after finishing 6-6 with one save and 48 strikeouts last year.Since Wisconsin will play just 15 games at home this season, Healy says traveling as a team will facilitate team bonding for her immature team. Newly hired assistant coach Randy Schneider has made a profound impact in aiding this process.“The kids are laughing; they’re lighthearted,” Healy said. “He’s got them bonding with the coaches, with the players, so I’m really pleased with how energetic they are right now, and you can’t underestimate that. Being on the road, I’m sure we’re all going to get to know each other a lot better now, the first couple of trips.”For the Badgers, measurable and attainable goals for team improvement, such as getting runners on base, advancing runners and keeping the ball in the ball park defensively will take precedent over a win total expectation.“We’re not walking out there and giving them a number, but we want to see them getting better every game and just really competing against everyone [by] staying in games, showing that effort,” Healy said. “I’m really looking forward to seeing whether we can get them there to be a really competitive, tenacious group.”last_img read more
