But the 34-year-old will start on the bench for just the second time this season before the former Real Madrid player returns to the Spanish capital next week.Paulo Dybala returns to the starting line-up, forming an attacking trident alongside Mario Mandzukic and Federico Bernardeschi.Juventus coach Massimiliano Allegri’s defensive problems have been eased with trio Andrea Barzagli, Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini back training.Juventus captain Chiellini is expected to return on Friday.Second-placed Napoli dropped points last weekend with a goalless draw against Fiorentina and face a potentially tricky test at home against Torino.Walter Mazzarri’s Torino are four points off the Europa League places.Napoli will be without midfielder Marek Hamsik for the first time since the former skipper having sealed his move to Chinese Super League club Dalian Yifang.Lorenzo Insigne takes on the captain’s role and insisted motivation remained high despite Juventus’ charge towards an eighth consecutive league title.“Juventus haven’t sapped our motivation, we knew it would be hard to keep up with them,” said Insigne.“We know they’re a great team, but we’re no worse than them.“The championship is still long. We left some points on the road that we deserved, but we certainly do not give up.”– Inter in turmoil –Meanwhile, third-placed Inter Milan, nine points behind Napoli, are in turmoil as they host Sampdoria days after stripping star forward Mauro Icardi of the captain’s armband.Inter Milan forward Mauro Icardi has been stripped of the captain’s armband © AFP/File / Filippo MONTEFORTEIcardi’s contractual situation, with his current deal expiring in 2021, has become an increasingly divisive issue between club bosses and the player’s wife Wanda Nara, who is also his agent.The Argentina forward hit back by refusing to travel for their Europa League round of 32 first-leg game at Rapid Vienna on Thursday and is uncertain to play against his former club Sampdoria, who are ninth, on Sunday.“It was a difficult and painful decision because we know his worth,” said Inter coach Luciano Spalletti.“It was done exclusively for the good of Inter. There are some things concerning the player that had to be sorted.”The uncertainty over Icardi, who scored 29 Serie A goals last season, could prove problematic as Spalletti tries to secure Champions League football next season.Inter are just four points ahead of city rivals AC Milan who travel to Atalanta.Atalanta, Roma and Lazio are all one point behind AC Milan.The clash in Bergamo will be one for fourth place, the final Champions League berth, which Roma will also be targeting at home against Bologna, and Lazio at Genoa.Roma claimed a 2-1 Champions League last 16, first-leg win over Porto on Tuesday with teenage star Nicolo Zaniolo scoring both goals.FixturesFridayJuventus v Frosinone (10:30pm)SaturdayCagliari v Parma (8pm), Atalanta v AC Milan (10:30pm)SundaySPAL v Fiorentina (2:30pm), Empoli v Sassuolo, Genoa v Lazio, Udinese v Chievo (all 6pm), Inter Milan v Sampdoria (8pm), Napoli v Torino (10:30pm)MondayRoma v Bologna (10:30pm)0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Mustangs encounter too many weapons

first_imgEarly in the second quarter after Newport Harbor had cut the Mustangs lead to 7-6, Kelly scored on a 4-yard quarterback draw to give Mira Costa a 14-6 lead. But Newport Harbor (4-1) scored on two straight possessions with McDonald finding Henry Pyle for a an 8-yard touchdown pass and J.B. Green on a 6-yard touchdown pass to give the Sailors a 20-14 lead. With Newport Harbor leading 20-17 midway through the third quarter, Kelly capped an 80-yard scoring drive with a 1-yard sneak to give the Mustangs the lead, 24-20. “Our offense played well tonight, especially our passing,” said Kelly, who threw for 175 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 80 yards and two more scores. “This nonleague schedule helped us to get ready for the real season – league play.” With Newport Harbor leading, 31-24, with just more than seven minutes to play in the game and Mira Costa driving, Kelly attempted an option pitch to running back Adrien Dotson. Unfortunately for the Mustangs, Dotson did not catch the pitch and Newport Harbor recovered on the Mustangs’ 48-yard line. Two plays later, McDonald gave Newport Harbor a 15-point cushion when he hooked up with Green for a 37-yard touchdown pass. The two-point conversion gave the Sailors a 39-24 lead with 7:42 remaining. Mira Costa drove down the field, scoring with four minutes remaining on Kelly’s second touchdown pass – a 6-yard strike to junior Michael Tam to pull the Mustangs within 39-30. Mira Costa elected to go for a two-point conversion, but Dotson was stopped short of the goal line on a run to clinch the win for Newport Harbor. “We couldn’t afford to turn the ball over tonight as every possession was important in the game,” Morrow said. “After we scored the last touchdown, we decided to go for two because had to at least once to have a chance.” Next week Mira Costa plays defending Bay League champion West Torrance in their league opener.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Unfortunately for the Mustangs, Newport Harbor and running back Danny Miller had other ideas as the junior ran for 201 yards and a touchdown to lead the Sailors to a 39-30 nonleague victory at Newport Harbor. Newport Harbor quarterback Andrew McDonald passed for 180 yards and three touchdowns. “He’s a terrific runner,” Mira Costa coach Don Morrow said of Miller. “They have a very good quarterback and wide receiver. They are three good weapons. We knew that going in, but we just didn’t stop them when we needed to.” Mira Costa (2-3) got on the scoreboard first when senior quarterback Sean Kelly hit Jon-Mikal Personius for a 34-yard touchdown pass early in the first quarter.

Brawl turns tragic; 1 dead, 1 in hospital

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat KingsA friend, Chad White, also 20, was stabbed multiple times and remained hospitalized Monday in critical condition. “The investigators have been out there virtually 24/7 the last couple of days,” said Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Lt. Dan Rosendberg. “Based on what I’ve heard so far it appears the individuals involved don’t have criminal records. They’re kids who made some poor decisions that ultimately resulted in someone’s death.” Sheriff’s homicide investigators continued Monday to question more than a dozen witnesses to the melee that broke out in a parking lot at a Stevenson Ranch condominium complex where a party was going on. Rosendberg said he expects some arrests to be made within days. Ten to 15 people were involved in the incident and while it’s too early for homicide detectives to discuss the case, those who were there have pieced together the night for Pipho’s family. STEVENSON RANCH – He wore No. 3 on his jersey those four years he played shortstop for Canyon High. He had a sparkle in his eye, the kind that “made everyone fall love with him,” his little brother said. But Joshua Pipho died just after midnight Saturday in his cousin’s arms, the climax of a brawl among what one sheriff’s official said involved regular kids who screwed up pretty bad one night. Twenty-year-old Pipho, an audio technician planning to go to college, was rammed by a car, stabbed and then run over again about 12:15 a.m. Saturday while trying to stop a group from vandalizing a friend’s truck, his friends and family said Monday. “We pretty much know he went out because his buddy’s truck was getting thrashed by these guys,” 15-year-old Tye Pipho said of his brother. “They were beating it with skateboards and bats. They told the guys to get out of here and they started a fight.” One of the men left saying he didn’t want to fight, but got in his car and sped toward Pipho, knocking him onto the hood of his car, witnesses said. The driver got out of the car, stabbed Pipho, then got back in and ran him over, sheriff’s officials said. “My cousin Shane (Falsey, 18,) was holding my brother in his arms,” the younger brother said. Meanwhile, the same driver also hit White then stabbed him as he tried to run for help, friends and family said. “I think this is going to turn out to be very tragic – as a disturbance that shouldn’t have happened,” Rosendberg said. “It looks like a bunch of young adults got involved in something I’m sure they’re going to regret the rest of their lives.” Meanwhile, funeral arrangements are pending for Pipho. “He was a caring person,” Tye said. “Everyone who knew him loved him. He had a sparkle in his eye that made everyone fall in love with him. He had a strong heart.” pat.aidem@dailynews.com 661-257-5251 For more news and observations about crime in Los Angeles and the San Fernando Valley, check out the Daily News’ crime blog by clicking here.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Swingin’ places

first_img Those looking for a links-type experience at a reasonable rate might consider Moorpark’s Rustic Canyon, a virtually treeless facility where large, closely mowed chipping surfaces surround each green and wind is a constant factor. History buffs will appreciate Griffith’s Park’s Wilson and Harding courses, which predate the Great Depression and were used for the 1937, ’38 and ’39 Los Angeles Opens. Harry Lighthorse” Cooper, who won the inaugural Los Angeles Open in 1926 at Los Angeles Country Club, became the event’s second multiple winner with his victory at Griffith Park in 1937, when he hit 274 for the lowest 72-hole total of the first 12 L.A. Opens. Knollwood Country Club, an open-to-the-public course that is part of the Los Angeles County system, is another reasonably priced layout and one that offer great variety in its holes, which wend through a well-established neighborhood filled with large trees.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Golf fans in the San Fernando Valley and adjoining communities have plenty of options for varied playing opportunities, from short courses to historic ones, high-end to moderately priced, from par-3 through all the difficulty one would want. Beginners can chose from a half-dozen par-3 courses, which combine limited distance, reasonable green fees, and – in the case of Sinaloa GC in Simi Valley – some memorable lore. For years, former Sinaloa general manager Lynn Shackelford, the one-time Burroughs High of Burbank and UCLA basketball standout, opened the course to free play the first Monday after every Bruins football win over USC. Shackelford is no longer at the course, but his legacy makes for some good memories for UCLA fans who play the nine-hole layout. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORE‘Mame,’ ‘Hello, Dolly!’ composer Jerry Herman dies at 88 Advanced players can take on a trio of executive courses, so called because they play to a par of 10-12 strokes lower than regulation courses. When this type of shorter course – they include no par-5 holes – was first designed in the 1960s, it was with the idea of providing a shorter time commitment for busy executives. El Cariso in Sylmar, Scholl Canyon in Glendale and Vista Valencia in Valencia – where current PGA Tour player Jason Gore got his start in the game – are all challenging executive courses. Vista and El Cariso are the longest and toughest of the trio, but short and tight Scholl Canyon, surrounded by canyon, demands accuracy or plenty of extra golf balls and further challenges with sloped greens that can be extremely quick. Upscale courses include Moorpark’s scenic Tierra Rejada, which offers some spectacular hillside views of eastern Ventura County farmland; Sunland’s Angeles National, site of a U.S. Open local qualifier last year; and Camarillo’s Sterling Hills, which has been host to Southern Section preliminary and championship high school tournaments. Robinson Ranch of Santa Clarita and TPC at Valencia are upscale courses in the Santa Clarita Valley, where an Arnold Palmer-designed course is expected to be built within a few years.center_img Golfers tee-off under perfect weather at the SBC Pro-Am tournament at Valencia Country Club.
