(Courtesy of Lori Harper) The Parkway Panthers’ dream season ended Saturday night with a 70-41 loss to the Acadiana Wreckin’ Rams in the Class 5A state championship game in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.Parkway, the first Bossier Parish team to play in a title game in the Superdome, closed the season 13-1 Acadiana, which won its third state championship since 2006, closed 14-1.“My overall thought was how amazing it was our team was able to play so well every week,” Parkway coach David Feaster said. “You saw what we had out there. We had a bunch of little guys that played extremely hard.”Feaster was asked if the loss tarnished the season.“No, it didn’t he any way,” he said.As lopsided as the score was, the Panthers made the Wreckin’ Rams sweat in the third quarter.Acadiana kicked off to start the second half. Parkway failed to cover the ball and the Rams went on to score for a 49-13 lead.The Panthers weren’t ready to throw in the towel, though.William McKnight ran 31 yards for a touchdown and Harris hit Austin Roth for the two-point conversion.The Panthers then recovered an onsides kick, and Harris hit Brodrick Jefferson for a 30-yard score.Parkway recovered yet another onsides kick and McKnight went eight yards for a TD. All of a sudden it was 49-35 with 1:10 left in the third quarter.Parkway couldn’t recover three onsides kicks in a row, and the Rams scored quickly. On Parkway’s next possession, Harris threw an interception. Acadiana scored again and that was it.The difference in the game was Acadiana’s powerful rushing attack.The Rams rushed for a Class 5A game record 393 yards in the first half alone, building a 42-13 lead.Acadiana finished with 623 yards rushing. The Rams had four backs who gained 140 yards or more.Harris set the Class 5A single game for passing yardage with 355 yards. He completed 13 of 27 with three touchdowns and three interceptions.McKnight, a junior who was named Parkway’s MVP, rushed for 87 yards and two touchdowns. He also caught two passes for 110 yards and two TDs.Premier Diamond BoutiqueHong Kong’s first lab-grown diamond empirePremier Diamond Boutique|SponsoredSponsoredUndoInstant Voice TranslatorInstant Voice Translator (43 Languages) Takes Hong Kong By StormInstant Voice Translator|SponsoredSponsoredUndoPerfect-Dating.comAre You Ready to Meet Cool Guys in Tung Chung?Perfect-Dating.com|SponsoredSponsoredUndoStanChart by CNBC CatalystBlockchain Is Changing the Game for Trade Financing.

It was stated the Premier League club have already made an approach to sign the striker in June. The claim wasn’t just that the Hammers had made contact, Calciomercato say they’ve made a proposal for Caicedo.This has been blocked by the Serie A club, because they have no intention of selling the player.Caicedo has eight goals and five assists in 29 appearances for Lazio so far this season, and his contract with the club lasts until June 2022.It’s not that long ago he was being linked with a move to Leeds United, and he scored a total of nine goals last season and six the season before.This isn’t a player West Ham would be falling over themselves to sign, especially considering he’s 31 years of age. Therefore, them making a proposal already just doesn’t seem likely.by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameBuild a City, Trade With Your Neighbors, Play With Your FriendsForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?

Latvia beat Moldova by a result of 3-0 (25:10, 25:21, 25:20).Atvars Ozoliņš was the most productive with 21 points for Latvians, Hermans Egleskalns scored 16 points, but Romans Saušs had ten points.Latvia has managed to qualify for the final tournament in 1995, but Avo Kēl with the Estonian national team – twice. Under the leadership of head coach Kels, this is the second attempt for Latvians to enter the final of the European Championship.In 2019, both the Latvian and Moldovan national teams participated in the European Championship qualification tournament, but none of the teams managed to reach the final tournament.Moldova played in subgroup C together with Iceland, Slovakia and Montenegro, making three successes in six dues. However, this was not enough to take the second place, which would guarantee participation in the final tournament.Meanwhile, Latvians in subgroup B played together with the Estonians and the Israeli national unit. The only victory in the last match was won over the Israelis, but the subgroup had to settle for the last, third, position.Even before leaving for Cyprus, the Latvian national team in Estonia held three test matches with the local national team, failing in all dues. Duels with the Polish team “Radrad Enea Czarni” in Radom were also planned, but they had to be canceled due to the Covid-19 pandemic.The Latvian national team will play the next match a day later, when they will meet with Spain, but on September 1, a game with Cyprus is planned. The second round will start on September 4 against Moldova, but in the next two days the Spaniards and Cypriots will have to fight.The European Championship qualifying tournament in Group D will take place in the capital of Cyprus, Nicosia, where the two-round matches will take place from 30 August to 6 September. In addition to Latvia and hostess Cyprus, Spain and Moldova will also take part in it.The qualifying tournament for the European Championship in Group D will be the only one in which both rings will be played at the same time in one country, and the only one that will be played in late August and early September, with the other groups finishing in January next year.The final tournament is scheduled for August and September 2021 in Poland, the Czech Republic, Finland and Estonia. Four home teams and the top eight teams from previous European Championships in Serbia, Slovenia, France, Russia, Italy, Ukraine, Germany and Belgium have already secured a place in the top 24 teams in Europe. The remaining 12 places in the final tournament will be taken by the winners of seven groups and the five best second place winners.Composition of the Latvian volleyball team:builders – Deniss Petrovs (Nizhny Novgorod ASK, Russia), Edvin Skruder (Jekabpils “Lynx”);second tempo – Romans Saušs (“Argo de Sete”, France), Kristaps Šmits (“Limbaži” / MSĢ), Atvars Ozoliņš (“Parnu”, Estonia), Markuss Cielavs (“Savo Volley”, Finland);diagonal – Hermans Egleskalns (Olympiacos of Piraeus, Greece), Edward Buvids (LINDAREN Volley I, Amrisville, Switzerland), Kristaps Platačs (Parnu, Estonia), Renārs Jansons (RTU / Border Guard);first tempo – Toms Švans (“Parnu”, Estonia), Vladislavs Blumbergs, Zigurds Adamovičs (both – Jēkabpils “Lūši”);libero – Ingars Ivanovs (RTU / “Border Guard”).
(Reuters) – Sri Lanka fast bowler Lasith Malinga claimed four wickets in four balls for the second time in his international career to rip through the New Zealand batting order in a Twenty20 match at Pallekele yesterday. Chasing 126 runs to win, New Zealand openers Colin Munro and Tim Seifert scored 15 in the opening two overs before captain Malinga rattled Munro’s leg stump for his 100th Twenty20 international wicket.Malinga removed Hamish Rutherford and Colin de Grandhomme in his next two deliveries to claim his second hat-trick in the format before trapping Ross Taylor leg-before for his fourth in the over.
The Ravens entered training camp with cornerback depth high on the list of concerns following the free-agent departure of Corey Graham and the lack of a significant offseason addition through free agency or the draft.The anxiety has only grown with a lingering back injury for starter Lardarius Webb that is likely to keep him sidelined for most of the preseason, according to head coach John Harbaugh. Webb “probably” won’t play in the first two preseason games and could even miss the all-important third game of the summer despite tests revealing no structural damage to the sixth-year defensive back.“He has some things going on in there that aren’t long-term things,” Harbaugh said. “I’m not going to get into it and give you the exact diagnosis of it. It’s probably as much me as anything. This early part of camp –- I just don’t want to put him through this on his back. He’s had sports hernia surgery [earlier in the offseason], also. There’s still some scar tissue in there. I just would rather keep him out of this first part of training camp, and we’ll just see how it feels more toward the end of camp.”As anyone could tell you, back injuries are tricky, and there’s no guarantee that Webb will be in the clear even when he returns to action. The Ravens are taking the prudent approach considering the regular-season opener against Cincinnati is still more than a month away, but that will only quell concerns so much in a day and age when the NFL is all about defending the passing game.Entering the summer, the competition was already wide open for the No. 3 cornerback spot with young defensive backs Chykie Brown and Asa Jackson expected to be pushed by veterans Aaron Ross and Dominique Franks, who were both signed following June’s mandatory minicamp. Instead, Ross tore his Achilles tendon taking the conditioning test at the start of camp and Franks took several days to pass the test to even get on the field. The former Atlanta Falcons cornerback has done very little to distinguish himself while working with the second- and third-string defenses in practice.Rookie free agents Tramain Jacobs, Deji Olatoye, and Sammy Seamster have all flashed ability and are intriguing candidates to potentially make the 53-man roster, but none can reasonably be counted on to handle a significant defensive role in Week 1.The only certainty right now is 2011 first-round pick Jimmy Smith handling one of the starting spots.“Somebody has to rise to the top,” defensive coordinator Dean Pees said. “The cream has to come to the top and somebody has to take the job, and I don’t know right now who that is. I feel pretty good about Jimmy Smith on the one side, and then there’s a lot of competition over on the other side. Right now, I couldn’t tell you who that is. Those guys just have to keep competing.”Through the early stages of camp, Jackson has played better than Brown, but neither has shown enough consistency to feel comfortable about penciling one into the nickel defense. When it comes to experience, Brown has the edge as he’s filled in as an outside corner in the nickel due to injuries while Jackson has yet to play a defensive snap as he enters his third season.Pees and secondary coach Steve Spagnuolo prefer to slide Webb inside in the nickel package where his ability to play the run and blitz can be better utilized, and Brown is better suited to play outside, but the 2011 fifth-round pick consistently struggles to find the football in coverage. Meanwhile, Jackson is more of an inside corner with a height listed at 5-foot-10.“That’s something that I went into this latest break trying to really work on and really working on my technique on the outside,” Jackson told AM 1570 WNST.net last week. “Being a smaller guy, it gets a little hairy out there sometimes, but I’ve put in a lot of good work this offseason. I’m excited to keep trying to improve and play on the outside.”The Ravens have experimented with a variety of different looks including moving strong safety Matt Elam to the nickel spot, but it’s fair to wonder whether the defense’s No. 3 cornerback isn’t currently on the roster. General manager Ozzie Newsome has found contributors who have become available at the end of the preseason in the past, but there’s no guarantee a quality cornerback will shake free with the pass-happy nature of the league and the premium placed on coverage.Newsome spoke highly of Brown and Jackson throughout the offseason, but the inability to add an impact cornerback this offseason is even more concerning with the absence of Webb.“We may do some things that I may not normally do in a game just to put those guys out there and see what they can do,” Pees said. “This is the time to experiment and see if they can do it — not when the season starts.”Of course, the Ravens are expressing confidence that Webb will be ready to go by the end of the summer, but they’ll need to find a comfort level with their No. 3 cornerback before they can even begin thinking about how to align the defense should Webb’s absence linger into the regular season.It’s not a comfortable place to be with a group of unproven and unheralded cornerbacks competing for what has essentially become a starting position in the NFL. And that discomfort becomes a nightmare if the Ravens aren’t being completely transparent about Webb’s injured back.For now, Harbaugh and his coaching staff can only hope one of the young cornerbacks answers the bell while Newsome keeps his eyes peeled for what might become available through trade or free agency.“There is a lot of competition out here for that third spot,” Jackson said. “I think we’re all kind of raising each other’s level of play. Hopefully, we can keep doing that and then once the games get here, it’ll sort out how it will.”
‘The View’ co-host Sunny Hostin: debating Colin Kaepernick’s Nike ad “the most American thing” people can do
ABC/Heidi Gutman(NEW YORK) — During the 22nd season premiere of ABC’s The View Tuesday, the hosts discussed the backlash centering around Nike’s new “Just Do It” campaign, featuring former pro football player Colin Kaepernick, who sparked controversy in 2016 by taking a knee during the national anthem in protest against police brutality in against African Americans.Some have responded to the add by destroying or burning their Nike gear and calling for a boycott of the brand. That touched off a debate between View co-hosts Whoopi Goldberg, Joy Behar and frequent contributor Sunny Hostin, who squared off against the show’s newest panelist, Abby Huntsman — the lone voice speaking out against the Kaepernick ad. Hostin tells ABC Radio that she welcomes the passionate response on both sides of the issue, calling it “the most American thing” people can do.“At this point in our country, no one should be on the sidelines. It’s just too important,” she says. “When I’m buying something, I do wanna know what the position is of the corporation. I wanna know that you’re being a good corporate citizen, that your values are in line with my values.”Adds Hostin, “I’m gonna go out and buy more Nikes…because I understand their position and I understand Colin Kaepernick’s position.”“Of course you can burn your Nikes, just like you can kneel during the national anthem,” she argues. “And I’m shocked that people don’t understand the parallels there. It’s fascinating to me.”“This is, you know, what should be happening in this country,” she explains. “When it isn’t happening in this country and speech is squelched, then people should be concerned…Boycotting is one of the most American things you can do.” On Monday, Hostin retweeted Kaepernick’s earlier post, featuring a picture of the ad.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

As the row between the Georgetown Mayor and City Council (M&CC) and the vendors continues, vendors are yet again dissatisfied with the relocation system. However, Town Clerk Royston King is confident that the system is fair.Vendors are complaining about the slow pace of the system of relocation is going.“I am out here since 7:00am and can’t get through yet,” a vendor told this newspaper at 16:30h.The town clerk indicated that the process was moving at that pace since the council is trying to ensure the process is “fair to everyone”.On the other hand, some vendors are contending that there may be some biasness in the allocation process since a number of persons are going to the Market Clerk subsequent to them and are given spots even as they wait.However, the Town Clerk in contesting this argument noted that the council is operating in phases to relocate the vendors to the temporary location beginning with the 133 vendors. He added that the 133 vendors have been registered with the market and Council and are known to the council to do business in that area.“The council has a register and we are working with it. That register is managed by the Market Clerk and I am confident that she will do a job that is fair,” King told this publication.He acknowledged that the Council has a huge problem with unregistered vendors, who are now coming forward to claim spots ahead of those registered.According to him, the council will give preference to the 133 registered vendors and will also accommodate a few from America Street.“There are some we will allow to remain back down to the Water Street area in a more organised manner but right now we are dealing with the vendors around the Stabroek Market Square.”The Town Clerk noted that he is happy about the temporary location and is encouraging patrons to support this move.Even as this is being done, some vendors are still not pleased with the new arrangements.One vendor who sells drinks said the new arrangements are not financially feasible for his business.“This location is a waste of time because we depend on people who travel with public transportation to support us and if we go there nobody will come there to buy a drink and go back,” the upset vendor complained.Prior to the relocation, over 400 vendors had plied their trade in the Stabroek Market area, however the new location can only accommodate 150 tents—at a squeeze at that.Vendors are aware that the space is insufficient to facilitate them but King said the Council is trying to facilitate as many vendors as possible.“We will accommodate as many as we can but when we reach that bridge we will cross it,” he said.According to vendors, they are faced with two alternatives if not awarded a spot – they will go back to their old spots or look for other work.One vendor contended that the City Council is taking away his honest means of making a living, noting that he is disappointed.“They putting we out of honest living,” the man said.Over the past week, vendors operating in the vicinity of the Stabroek Market Square were engaged in heated confrontations with M&CC after word surfaced that the council will be relocating them to facilitate works on the area for the 50th Anniversary of Guyana’s Independence.The relocation is said to be temporary.Meanwhile President David Granger on Friday called on the Council to hasten its efforts to prepare and provide an alternative location for the vendors.
