Liverpool win Premier League title with seven games to spare

first_imgLONDON (Reuters) – Liverpool’s 30-year English title drought ended on Thursday as they were confirmed as Premier League champions courtesy of second-placed Manchester City’s 2-1 loss at Chelsea.The result at Stamford Bridge means Liverpool have an unassailable 23-point lead over City with seven games left.Liverpool were last champions of England when they won the old First Division title in 1989-90 after which a decline in fortunes saw Manchester United and Arsenal, then Chelsea and Manchester City seize power.Manager Juergen Klopp has rekindled the Anfield flame though and delivered the club’s 19th title, one behind arch-rivals United’s record of 20, after finishing runners-up to City in a thrilling title race last season. Despite the COVID-19 pandemic forcing a three-month suspension of the season and delaying Liverpool’s coronation, they have won the title with a record seven games to spare.They eclipsed the record jointly held by Manchester United (2000-01) and Manchester City (2017-18), who sealed their respective titles with five games left.Had it not been for the unprecedented stoppage Liverpool were on course to smash the record for the earliest league title. Instead they are now the first team to lift the coveted trophy as late as June. Liverpool ended last season with nine consecutive league wins and, after claiming the Champions League, began the new campaign in relentless fashion to leave all of their rivals trailing in their wake.With 28 wins and just one defeat in 31 games, Liverpool have set a record-breaking pace and were 25 points clear in February — the biggest lead in Premier League history. When they beat West Ham United that month it was their 18th successive top-flight win, matching Manchester City’s record, before their hopes of an unbeaten season were dashed by a 3-0 defeat at Watford, a result that was merely a blip.Leading the charge has been Mohamed Salah, the Egyptian forward who is the first Liverpool player to score 20 goals in all competitions in three consecutive seasons since Michael Owen at the start of the millennium.City were the first team to breach the 100-point barrier in the Premier League two seasons ago but Liverpool are on course to shatter that mark, as well as records for most points at home (55) and most wins in a season (32).last_img read more

Watts draws motivation from grandma

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Comments Published on April 6, 2010 at 12:00 pm Contact Mark: [email protected] | @mark_cooperjrcenter_img Before Stephanie Watts’ first at-bat every game for the Syracuse softball team, she leans over to the ground. She writes something, gets up and goes to the plate. The initials ‘DJS’ are left behind in the dirt.‘My grandmother passed away and she never got to see me play in college,’ Watts said. ‘It’s in memory, so she can always see me play.’A little tribute for someone that meant a lot.Watts’ grandmother, Dolores, died on Aug. 5, 2008, due to complications from diabetes. Her death occurred just a few weeks before Watts moved to Syracuse for her freshman year. It was a huge loss for the sophomore, who had a very close relationship with her grandmother.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘She told me she does that, and I bawled my eyes out,’ said Mary Watts, Stephanie’s mother. ‘She was very proud of (Stephanie’s) accomplishments. When Steph played during summer ball, she always called to find out how (the team) did.’Watts has started all 81 games that Syracuse has played since she’s been on the team, and every single time she has written ‘DJS’ in the dirt before she bats. She’ll pay her tribute twice more today as the Orange (15-15) hosts St. John’s (13-16) in a doubleheader beginning at 3 p.m. at SU Softball Stadium. Syracuse is coming home and looking to rebound from a disappointing weekend at Georgetown, where the team lost two of three. Watts will be a key factor when Syracuse tries to turn things around against the Red Storm Wednesday. Despite being only a sophomore, the second baseman is growing both as a player and as a leader. ‘She’s a kid that is open to growing,’ head coach Leigh Ross said. ‘She is looked at as a leader as only a sophomore. That’s tough for a kid that’s still trying to grow and find herself, but she’s willing to take that on.’Since the first time she stepped on the field for the Orange, Watts has been one of SU’s primary offensive players. She homered in each of her first three games of her collegiate career last season at New Mexico and finished tied for the team lead in home runs with seven as a freshman. She’s continued her contributions this season, hitting two home runs and driving in 14 runs through 30 games.Grandma would be proud.‘She was very excited, very proud that Stephanie got a scholarship and was really excited to see her do well in college,’ Mary Watts said. ‘Then she took a turn for the worse and passed away before all this happened.’Watts was the first person in her family to get an athletic scholarship. The tribute to her grandmother before the game is just one sign that she is growing more mature, Ross said. She has also done away with tossing her helmet after a strikeout, a bad habit that hindered her ability to be a leader for the Orange.‘She kind of reminds me of myself with her passion,’ Ross said. ‘Sometimes when you’re young, you don’t quite understand how to use that passion. Whenever you get so angry you want to throw something, you need to turn it into a positive. I see her doing that now.’During Spring Break, Watts could not find the earpieces for her helmet. The earpieces usually fell out of her helmet when she would slam it down. Ross poked fun at her, ‘Did you throw it again?’ A former sign of immaturity became a joke.In the stretch run of her second season for Syracuse, Watts has harnessed her passion and is now one of the leaders of a young Orange team looking to climb to the top of the Big East. Her will to win and love for the game facilitate her success, and they are the reasons why she will leave a lasting image on Syracuse softball by the time she’s done, Ross said.For now, Watts will leave an image in the dirt next to home plate for someone who left a lasting image on her life. ‘My mom would be very pleased and touched that Stephanie would think of her to do something like that,’ Mary Watts said. ‘She would realize how much Stephanie has matured. (Stephanie) has accepted her challenges and deals with them.’[email protected]  last_img read more

Syracuse falters down the stretch, again, in Jim Boeheim’s return against No. 6 North Carolina

And for Syracuse, despite the hype and hoopla of a game that set Saturday night apart, it was a similar late collapse that put SU in its deepest conference hole in 19 years.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We just want to win, period, at this point,” Michael Gbinije said. “Having these back-to-back losses, it’s not a fun environment to be in. It hits us … We talk about it a lot.”Syracuse and North Carolina traded leads 16 times on Saturday. It was the Tar Heels that had started out with a 27-20 lead. When the Orange had scored, the crowd reacted to each like it was a game-winning shot. But 14 minutes in, UNC was on a 10-0 run, powered by eight points in the paint.Trevor Cooney created space by fading away on a corner 3 to start the SU response. Then he hit a pull-up jumper. And even though his long-range jumper missed, an offensive rebound from Dajuan Coleman and a 3-pointer by Malachi Richardson erased SU’s six-minute and 13-second scoring drought.At the next dead ball, Cooney, who finished with 27 points, flexed his arms at his sides. It was like this every time UNC made its run. The Tar Heels went up 44-38 early in the second half. But Richardson stared down Theo Pinson after the UNC guard tripped trying to defend his perfect 3-pointer.It was pure emotion and adrenaline that kept Syracuse afloat, players said after the game. And it seemed to be never-ending.“We wanted to win this game bad,” forward Tyler Roberson said. “… We really needed this one.”North Carolina owned the paint, though, and it owned the high post. That led to easy points, including six Tar Heel dunks, each seemingly more thunderous than the last. The Tar Heels broke down Syracuse for 12 makes in each of its final 13 attempts from the field.The Orange had cut the lead to six points on a Gbinije three-point play and Tyler Lydon had made a body-diving block in transition on Marcus Paige. But a Justin Jackson layup proved it only delayed the inevitable.Syracuse had answered every run. It played, at times better than the better team. But just like Syracuse has seen a second-half lead slip away in each of its first three conference losses, it happened again to finish the fourth.With 1:13 to play, Boeheim sat in his chair, his hand rotating between a place to rest his chin and a tool to scratch the back of his ear. The same fans that greeted him with undying devotion had begun streaming out before the night was complete.He got up with five seconds left, and waited for the result to be official before walking to shake Roy Williams’ hand, the victor on a night defined by his return.“A long way to go,” Boeheim said, unprompted, before he left his press conference. “We’ll be fine.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 9, 2016 at 10:12 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Jim Boeheim acknowledged a crowd of 26,811 with a brief and seemingly forced wave. The pitch of their roar had overtaken a public address announcer that was able to introduce his name for the first time in 32 days. It was the beginning of a night that was — whether he liked it or not — dedicated to him.“Same as always,” Boeheim said, before repeating himself. “… It’s not something new for me.”Syracuse played an inspired game in front its 40-year head coach who returned from a nine-game suspension. It outrebounded a team that outrebounds its opponents by 10 a game. It took a six-point, second-half lead on a team that, on paper, may have been better at every position. The Carrier Dome felt a high that it hadn’t at any previous point this season, but it was a “same as always” result and storyline for the Orange (10-7, 0-4 Atlantic Coast), dropping its fourth consecutive conference game in an 84-73 loss to No. 6 North Carolina (15-2, 4-0).MORE COVERAGEDajuan Coleman plays season-high 27 minutes in loss to Tar HeelsWhat we learned from Syracuse basketball’s 84-73 loss to No. 6 North CarolinaTrevor Cooney shines and Michael Gbinije shrinks in loss to UNClast_img read more
