Eagles have rematch with Cougars in CJ IV football semifinal game

first_imgBY WAYNE WITKOWSKI Correspondent Middletown South Middletown High School South’s football team will be eyeing revenge in a different context when, as the No. 7 seed, it travels to No. 3 seed Colts Neck High School for the NJSIAA Central Jersey Group IV semifinals at 1 p.m. on Dec. 1.Coming off a gritty 21-13 Thanksgiving victory over Middletown High School North, the Eagles (7-3) remember a late season 28-9 loss to Colts Neck on Nov. 11 that dropped it from a No. 3 playoff seed at the time.“It was disappointing as far as the effort we put forth,” Middletown South coach Steve Antonucci said after the Colts Neck game that was the Eagles’ second straight loss. “That was a huge game for seedings.”After practice early this week, Antonucci said, “I don’t have to go about motivating them. They’ve got all the motivation they need, and they’re 48 minutes from a state final. I expect a much better effort. We have to protect the ball and sustain an offense. They (Colts Neck) got after us defensively and put us in a bind when we played them. We have to convert third down plays and put a drive together.”Middletown South comes off its victory over Middletown North injury-free, but it got a good warmup for its semifinal playoff game. The Eagles rallied from an early 6-0 deficit and had to hold off Middletown North’s 37-yard touchdown pass from Cody Thompson to Rob Spinelli that cut the lead to 21-13 with 3:34 left. “We need to continue to do better. We need to be more consistent in moving the ball and on defense to be a little tighter like early in the season,” Antonucci said after the Colts Neck game. It won its playoff opener, 40-8, over West Windsor- Plainsboro High School South on Nov. 16.On Thanksgiving, Thompson caught an 8-yard pass from Jake Betkowski on a trick play off a reserve as Middletown North struck first. But, the extra point kick was blocked, which Antonucci said was a “huge” play.Eagles quarterback Kyle Brey connected with Elijah Smith for a 48-yard pass play that tied it midway through the second quarter and Connor Ryan’s extra point then gave the Eagles the lead for good.“This game is always difficult because it’s a rivalry for them and it’s their last game. We have nothing to gain but bragging rights and we’re playing on,” Antonucci said. “It’s difficult to motivate our players off a playoff win like we had against West-Windsor Plainsboro South, but the kids responded.”Brey completed a 30-yard scoring strike to Andrew Wisialko for a 14-6 lead with 7:09 left in the third quarter and Smith ran nine yards for a touchdown with 7:39 left for a 21-6 lead before Middletown North battled back. Smith also was named the Defensive Player of the Game. Thompson got the offensive honor.last_img read more

first_imgThe group stage ended on the weekend with Hekari finishing second in Group B while Dwellers failed to secure a win, settling in fourth place in Group A.Hekari failed to qualify for the semifinals after being defeated by Team Wellington 4-0.Wellington progressed with the maximum nine points while Hekari’s campaign was over despite two impressive victories from their three matches.Hekari defeated AS Lossi in their first game 1-5 and beat Suva FA 3-0 in their second game.The OFC official website reports that Hekari coach Jerry Allen couldn’t hide his disappointment after the match against Team Wellington.Allen said it was a really tough game and they knew that Wellington were very strong, a well-disciplined team.“They scored early and that wasn’t good for us.

We learned a lot and I love this tournament. If we get a chance to play in it next year we will give our very, very best,” Gunemba said.Hekari and Dwellers return home this week.The semi-finals of the tournament will see Auckland City FC take on best runners-up AS Tefana at 12pm on Wednesday before Team Wellington face AS Magenta at 3.30pm at Auckland’s QBE Stadium.last_img read more

Liverpool legend backs Man United to beat Chelsea in FA Cup

first_img Forbes list reveals how much Mayweather, Ronaldo and Messi earned this decade no dice Chelsea beat Man United in last year’s final in what proved to be Antonio Conte’s final game in charge of the Blues Many want Solskjaer to be handed the United job on a full-time basis after going unbeaten in his first 11 matches since succeeding Jose Mourinho in the dugout, though recent joy was tempered when PSG rocked up at Old Trafford in the Champions League last week and outplayed the Red Devils to secure a 2-0 win.But that defeat by one of Europe’s powerhouses means nothing in terms of tonight’s clash with Chelsea, according to Hamann, who says the Blues are not at the same level as PSG.Speaking to, Hamann said: “You’ve got to ignore their defeat by Paris Saint-Germain – it was a result which told us more about PSG than United. Hamann belives Solskjaer will guide United to success this evening “Chelsea aren’t in that class and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s men can return to winning ways at the Bridge. This is the type of game we’ll see how much United have improved.”The FA Cup quarter-final draw will take place following Monday night’s match, with the winners joining Wolves, Millwall, Crystal Palace, Manchester City, Swansea, Watford and Brighton in the last eight. huge blow Liverpool legend Didi Hamann says Manchester United will get back to winning ways when they visit Chelsea in the FA Cup fifth round on Monday evening.talkSPORT brings you full live commentary of the showpiece clash of the round, with one of last year’s finalists set to be knocked out the competition before the quarter-finals. shining ADVICE REVEALED LATEST FOOTBALL NEWS Top nine Premier League free transfers of the decade REVEALED Ronaldo warned Lukaku how hard scoring goals in Serie A would be before Inter move Which teams do the best on Boxing Day in the Premier League era?

Andy Murray crashes out of Queen’s in opening round

first_imgThompson had lost in the second round of qualifying on Sunday to Frenchman Jeremy Chardy but he was thrust back into the main draw after Bedene, the British number four, pulled out with a wrist problem on Tuesday morning.For all Murray’s inadequacies, the Australian 23-year-old played brilliantly, dictating the points with his rasping forehand and showing an aggressive approach that his more established opponent was simply unable to match.Thompson had beaten David Ferrer in Brisbane in January and world number 15 Jack Sock in the Davis Cup in April, but this was his first Tour win against a player in the top 20 and by the far the biggest of his career.He set the tone early on when Murray had to save two break points in his opening service game, and while the Briton changed his racket he could never really turn the tide.Into the first-set tie-break and Murray double-faulted to hand back a mini-break before a missed volley helped Thompson move 6-3 clear.Murray saved one set point but not the next as another backhand volley dropped into the bottom of the net and the underdog took the frame.The second set grew even worse for Murray, whose backhand lob – usually a trademark shot – dropped long to give Thompson the break and a 3-2 lead.The two-time Wimbledon champion has proven himself one of the greatest scrappers but even he could not escape this time as a forehand blown wide conceded a second break, and Thompson duly served out after an hour and 43 minutes. World number one Andy Murray has lost 7-6 6-2 to Australian lucky loser Jordan Thompson in the opening round of the Aegon Championships at Queen’s Club.Thompson was called up to replace the injured Aljaz Bedene just a few hours earlier on Tuesday but the world number 90 played the match of his life to beat the Scot.For Murray, his Wimbledon warm-up could hardly have gone worse.A record five-time champion at Queen’s, he must now recover confidence and rhythm if he is to avoid a similarly disappointing defence of his Wimbledon crown in two week’s time. This was the world number one’s ninth defeat already in 2017 and sixth against an opponent ranked outside the top 20.It is his second worst result by ranking since he lost to world number 92 Guillermo Garcia Lopez at Indian Wells in March 2012.There were signs of a return to form when Murray reached the semi-finals at the French Open earlier this month but this represents a step back, his serve again unreliable and forehand particularly wayward.The Scot reportedly pledged to donate his prize money from this event to victims of the Grenfell Tower disaster and that figure for losing in the first round will be around £12,000.last_img read more

Check out their five lessons learned.What are the differences in how age demographics search the internet?: Rebecca Sentance discusses some interesting results on how different groups of people search the web. With all the latest voice-controlled speakers, I expect a more current study would show different results for voice search usage across groups. The UX Testing Tool that was here all this time – for free: First time I’ve heard of the User Experience Questionnaire (UEQ). It’s a two-three minute survey to evaluate the user experience of a product. And you don’t have to do the analysis yourself.The most wonderful thing about the UEQ is that it comes with an Excel analysis tool.A 6-point microcopy checklist for product teams without UX writers: Imagine you have no user experience writer on your team. And no one on your team feels qualified to take on the task of writing the microcopy for your interface. This six-point checklist can help.

What a time to be alive and working with CSS. 😍🌟— Mandy Michael (@Mandy_Kerr) March 16, 2018Moving From Flash To HTML, CSS, And JavaScript: Yes, there are still a lot of websites out there using Flash. But with Adobe no longer officially supporting Flash, it’s time to move on. Simon Owen explains what you can do to migrate from a Flash-based site. Designing Button States: How many button states can you name? When you use buttons in your designs, you’ll want to go beyond including only a default and hover state.Buttons are a staple of any design system. The best ones are simple, versatile, maybe even a little fun.What’s the Deal with Margin Collapse?: Thanks to Jonathan Harrell for providing visual examples of how margin collapse works (and when it doesn’t). Creating User-Friendly Forms: If you want to increase the completion rate of forms on your website or web app, invest time and resources to make the form simple, use labels, and write clear, easily understood messages. What I Found InterestingTwenty: Congrats to Jason Kottke on the twentieth anniversary of his website. In 2000, he introduced the concept of the permalink as a deliberate design feature.

Web 3.0 Conference: Real-World Value from Semantics and Analytics

first_imgTags:#Sponsors#web Editor’s note: we offer our long-term sponsors the opportunity to write ‘Sponsor Posts’ and tell their story. These posts are clearly marked as written by sponsors, but we also want them to be useful and interesting to our readers. We hope you like the posts and we encourage you to support our sponsors by trying out their products.From May 19th to 20th, mediabistro will hold its Web 3.0 Conference in New York City at the New Yorker Hotel. The conference focuses on the semantic web, mashups, text and data analytics, and how they add real-world value to end users and businesses.The last phase of the web, which has been referred to as Web 2.0, was more about AJAX-driven interactivity and social media. The Web 3.0 conference focuses on technologies that make the Web and data management substantially smarter.Keynote speakers at the conference include:Christine Connors, Global Director of Semantic Technology Solutions, Dow Jones;Aza Raskin, Head of User Experience, Mozilla Labs;Thomas Tague, Calais Initiative Lead, Thomson Reuters;Loren Grossman, Global Chief Strategy Officer, Rapp/Omnicom.While some think of Web 3.0 as an almost science-fiction-like intelligent Web, the truth is that a lot of here-and-now technology can make your Web and corporate applications smarter and more profitable. This includes everything from extracting insights from customer behaviors to serve them better, to breaking down the corporate information silos spread throughout your company so that your business information can become actionable insights.The next generation of the Web is about leveraging the massive amounts of information you have or intend to collect or find available on the Web to make more profitable, efficient businesses and services. This concept will be one of the major drivers of profit as we push past the “2.0” generation and seek the “what’s next” of the Internet.For more details and to register for the conference, visit ReadWriteWeb readers save 15% with the discount code XRWW.

Think Integration for Your Supply-Chain Security Program

first_imgThe supply-chain network demands controlToday’s supply-chain security program networks are a far cry from the basic lock-and-key operations of the past. Readily available technological tools and business intelligence data can help support organizations as they fortify their networks. In order to thrive, however, teams must look to integrate and align these enhancements.[text_ad use_post=’2386′]In a column in the March–April 2017 issue of LP Magazine, Maurizio Scrofani, CCSP, LPC, illustrates the challenges faced by organizations when it comes to implementing and aligning technology and strategy in the supply-chain security program. He shares a sample integration roadmap based on his own past experiences. From the article:- Sponsor – Find the right operating and reporting structure to allow your team to thrive and you to spend your time where most needed. As I set out on my own roadmap some years ago, I quickly realized that to build on accomplishments, I would need a structure to institutionalize learning and tackle big projects.I focused first on collaboration and created regions supported by a network of project management teams (PMTs). This structure progressed and socialized ideas in the business and encouraged interfacility, interdivisional collaboration on such topics as audits, green initiatives, investigations, shortage awareness, technology, training, uniforms (yep, those too if you use them), and vendor vetting and engagement.Team leaders were encouraged to become subject-matter experts (SMEs) certified by the Loss Prevention Foundation, American Trucking Association, and International Association of Interviewers. From this experience, the PMT in charge of training enhanced our standard operating manual, which eventually became a digital interactive tutorial. Building on shared knowledge and a “pay it forward” attitude, the network became connected and focused on a singular vision—one team with one goal “to win at all we do.”The column also covers next steps, such as “capturing quick wins” through technology enhancements and improving speed-to-market through new initiatives and programs.
