Jerome Porical kicks Perpignan into the Top 14 final

first_imgSunday May 16, 2010 Jerome Porical kicks Perpignan into the Top 14 final Perpignan knocked Toulouse out of the Top 14 with a 21-13 victory over their French rivals in the semi final in Montpelier on Friday. Jerome Porical kicked all 21 points as they progressed to the final, where they will face Clermont, who beat Toulon yesterday. Toulouse had hoped to get a rare double by winning both the Top 14 and Heineken Cup, but thats not possible now so theyll throw everything into that final next weekend. They did get off to a good start though, with scrumhalf Nicolas Bezy scoring early on thanks to a typically Toulouse counterattack and classy interplay. They were also up 13-9 at halftime, with two other penalties againt the three from Porical. The defending champions Perpignan took control in the second half though with fullback Porical kicking four penalties to place them out of reach and into the final. There was a bit of a scuffle in the second half, with Toulouse wing Vilimoni Delasau making an accusation of eye-gouging, one that is taken very seriously these days. We’ll wait to see if anything develops from that. Coach Jacques Brunel was delighted with the win, saying it was hard work getting there, but that his side couldnt wait to face Toulouse. “We knew this would be very, very tight from the start. “Even when we were four points down at half-time, we knew there was still everything to play for. We are in the final again, but I don’t know whether we are stronger than last year. “We want to defend our title, but we know it’ll be very difficult,” he added.

Indiana and Illinois Crops Wilting Under Blistering Heat

first_imgThe weather forecast does not hold out much hope of improvement. HAT meteorologist Rob Wasson says the next few days are going to be brutal, “Extremely dry and hot weather will continue for the rest of the week with very little rainfall.  Daytime highs in the 90s to lower 100s will bake soils and push evapotranspiration rates above .40″ each day.  Livestock heat stress will push into the danger category on Thursday and through the weekend.” Wasson added that scattered showers and a few thunderstorms will be possible on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday.  Most areas, he said, will get only light amounts under .25″ with a few areas of .50″ or more.

The latest crop condition ratings show both corn and soybeans are suffering under the blistering heat and lack of rain. Katy Darr, with Crestview Commodities in Syracuse, IN, says the crop ratings have gotten the attention of futures traders in Chicago, “Especially Illinois with only 39% in good to excellent condition and Indiana at 27% in good to excellent condition, both well below their averages at around 60% good to excellent.” She added that a major technical move occurred in the corn on Tuesday when December futures moved above $6, a major resistance point.  While soybean prices moved lower on Tuesday, Darr says the state of the soybean crop is a key factor to watch, “Again Illinois with soybean conditions at 35% at good to excellent and Indiana at only 24% good to excellent condition.” Previous articleNew CFO And CAFO Rules Require Operational ChangesNext articleSouth Korea Suspends Iranian Oil Imports Gary Truittlast_img read more

Spirited morning of paintball concludes Syracuse’s Fort Drum trip

first_imgFORT DRUM, N.Y. — Tim Daoust had barricaded himself behind a wooden plank. He lay on the ground, maneuvering his body on all fours as he tried to line up a shot.He had already taken out Micah Robinson, but once he got up and made his way to the spot Robert Welsh was hiding, the defensive end came out and bombarded his helpless defensive line coach with a slew of paintballs.“It felt good, I’m not going to lie,” Welsh said. “When he ran over the barricade that I was hiding under, I said it had to be him, so I got up and I saw it was him and I kept shooting. I think I emptied my paintball gun.”Welsh’s attack was one of many highlights of Syracuse’s final day at Fort Drum. After four days of training and fraternizing with the soldiers on the military base, the players and coaches spent Friday morning playing paintball before heading back to the SU campus.Teammates stood along a chain-link fence, laughing and yelling whenever a player raised his hands and surrendered after getting hit.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We had fun out there, man,” senior linebacker Cameron Lynch said. “Great way to go out for our seniors and a great way to end Fort Drum.”Most players wore long-sleeve, loose-fitting attire. But not everyone.Senior linebacker Josh Kirkland was one of a few who wore just a T-shirt. Center Jon Burton wore camouflage overalls. Assistant trainer Matt Mancz used a Syracuse shirt as a bandana.It was a friendly atmosphere, but the competition wasn’t lost on the SU players.Mitch Kimble took no mercy on a teammate when the backup quarterback fired from point-blank range as the victim tried to slide behind a rusted-over crate.The 90-minute excursion ended with a matchup between the seniors and the coaching staff. Afterward, Shafer addressed the team, bitter with the coach’s defeat.“We were just trying to renegade and just light the coaches up as best we could,” Welsh said. “If we got hit, to be honest, we were just going to stay in and keep shooting.” Comments Published on August 15, 2014 at 1:36 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3 Related Stories Freshman safety Williams shines after colonel pumps up SU defense and other defensive observations at Fort DrumBroyld looks like a go-to option and other offensive observations from Syracuse’s Fort Drum scrimmageShafer discusses Cooper’s transfer announcement, Enoicy’s status after Fort Drum scrimmagecenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
