Jesus keeps up scoring spree, Man City beats Wolves 3-0

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is keeping a close eye on Gabriel Jesus now the young striker's family are no longer with him in England. Maintaining his hot streak in front of goal should keep the Brazilian's spirits high. The 21-year-old Jesus scored twice in City's 3-0 win over 10-man Wolverhampton Wanderers in the Premier League on Monday, extending his spree to seven goals across three different competitions in the past nine days. Whether he can retain City's sole striker spot ahead of club great Sergio Aguero, who started on the bench after a recent illness, remains to be seen but Jesus cannot be doing any more to impress his manager, Pep Guardiola. "I know Sergio Aguero is an amazing player and helps me a lot," Jesus said. "When Sergio plays he helps the team, and when I play I want to help as well. "I play better now and to score goals is important to me." And having two in-form strikers can only boost City's chances of reeling in Liverpool in the Premier League title race. Liverpool's lead was trimmed to four points by City's win over Wolves, for whom the match was a damage-limitation exercise from the moment center back Willy Boly was handed a straight red card for a dangerous tackle on Bernardo Silva in the 19th minute. By then, Jesus had tapped in a left-wing cross from Leroy Sane, who was found by a searching ball forward from center back Aymeric Laporte, to put City in front in the 10th minute. Jesus added his second goal from the penalty spot in the 39th after Raheem Sterling was fouled by Ryan Bennett. City piled on the pressure in the second half — it finished the game with 76 percent possession — but had only one more goal to show for it, with Conor Coady glancing a header into his own net from substitute Kevin De Bruyne's cross. Since losing back-to-back league games around the Christmas holiday to drop out of the lead and, at one point, be seven points behind Liverpool, City has been in relentless form — winning five straight matches in all competitions and scoring 24 goals in the process. Among them was a 9-0 win over third-tier Burton in the English League Cup, when Jesus scored four times. Guardiola spoke ahead of the game about the club needing to rally around the striker because he might start to find life difficult after his mother, two older brothers and nephew returned to Brazil following an extended stay in Manchester to help Jesus acclimatize. And teammates Sane and Sterling could not have handed him easier opportunities to continue his scoring run. Wolves were potentially tricky opponents for City, given their strong record against the top six in the league. Nuno Espirito Santo's team drew against City at home in August and recently beat Tottenham. Boly's straight red card put paid to any chance of an upset at Etihad Stadium and Wolves failed to have a shot on target. And neither Boly nor Espirito Santo had any complaints about the decision, with the defender having got the ball in a challenge with Silva only to catch him with the follow-through. "The game 11 vs. 11 was the same as 11 vs. 10," Guardiola said. It was the 16th time this season that City has scored three or more goals. This latest victory moved the champion five points clear of third-placed Tottenham, which lost at home to Manchester United on Sunday. Liverpool will also be wary of City's improved form. "All we can do is win our own games," Guardiola said. "We spoke many times in the last hours about this to our players. We cannot control what they do. We can control what we do. The only way to do that is by being there. Maybe one day they fail and we try to be there. "But you can be sure if we don't win, they will be champions.".....»»

Jasmine Alkhaldi raring for SEA Games gold at home

MANILA, Philippines---Olympic heartbreaks won't make Philippine swimmer Jasmine Alkhaldi walk away from the sport. Jasmine Alkhaldi had thoughts of giving up swimming when she failed to advance to the semifinals of the 100-meter women's freestyle event in the 2016 Rio Olympics, but the notion of competing in the 2019 Philippine Southeast Asian Games made her change her mind. Representing Filipinos in her home country lit a fire in Alkhaldi that almost got doused in the pools of Rio de Janeiro and now she's on a mission to wear the Philippine colors proudly in the regional games.

PBA: Magnolia muse Sharon Cuneta shrugs off online bashers

BOCAUE, BULACAN -- Megastar Sharon Cuneta just shrugged off online bashers critical of her selection as the Magnolia Hotshots muse in the opening of the 44th PBA season here. Cuneta, an endorser of the poultry products of the compan, represented the newly-crowned Governors' Cup champions as they were introduced one by one. When the announcement was made that she would be the muse last Tuesday, an online firestorm erupted, bashing Cuneta for primarily her age.

The 53-year old veteran actress and singer is no stranger to being the muse of the franchise, and accompanied Purefoods back in 1990 when Alvin Patrimonio and Jojo Lastimosa led the charge. It was a star-studded affair for all 12 squads, who brought lovely ladies to accompany them to the makeshift podium at the Philippine Arena floor.

Kiteboarder Tio eyes Olympic gold in 2024

After bagging the Philippines’ first silver medal at the recent 2018 Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in Argentina, 17-year old kiteboarder Christian Tio is eyeing a gold medal finish at the 2024 Paris Summer Olympics. “Kiteboarding will be an Olympic sport in 2024 in Paris, that’s part of the plan,” said Tio, in the press conference on Monday at the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex. Tio was joined by Philippine Sports Commission Commissioners Arnold Agustin and Celia Kiram, YOG Chef de Mission and Philippine Canoe Kayak Dragonboat Federation President Jonne Go and Tio’s mother Liezl Mohn. “I got six more years to prepare and get better every day,” added the Filipino-Norwegian athlete.   Go intimated that she was really banking on Tio upon she learning that he qualified for the Youth Olympics.   "I looked over his credentials and had a gut-feel he will deliver,"she said. Agustin congratulated Tio “for giving us our first medal in the Youth Olympic Games, since we participated in 2010” and assured him of PSC’s full support in his campaign going to 2024. Tio shared the silver medal in the men’s kiteboarding twin tip racing with Toni Vodisek of Slovenia while Deury Corniel of Dominican Republic won the gold. “With all the postponements happening for the finals race due to the inclement weather, I was already expecting for a fourth-place finish or just the bronze. But, I just went all in and made it through,” said the Boracay-native Tio. “I am very proud of Christian for what he’s achieved,” said his mother Liezl, who is also a kiteboarder and who introduced Christian to the sport at the age of seven. Meanwhile, Kiram shared that by virtue of Republic Act 10699, Tio is set to receive two million five hundred thousand pesos (P2,500,000.00) in cash incentives, with his coach receiving the equivalent of fifty percent of Tio's incentive. Incentives of Tio and 2018 Asian Paragames medalists will be awarded at the Malacañang Palace next month......»»

YOUTH OLYMPICS: Saso struggles in round two but remains in medal contention

BUENOS AIRES — Yuka Saso hobbled with a four-over-par 74 on Wednesday but still remained in the hunt for a podium finish in women’s golf while swimmer Nicole Oliva reached the finals in the 200m freestyle at the 2018 Youth Olympic Games here. The 17-year-old Filipino- Japanese compiled 145 over two days, five strokes off leaders Alessia Nobilio of Italy and Kim Grace of Australia after she bogeyed four straight holes to take the turn at three-over. Saso also had a pair of bogeys on No. 11 and No. 15 and birdied No. 12. "She didn’t play her best today,’" said Saso’s coach Rick Gibson. "It’s really tricky out there today.’" Grace was steady with a 69 while Nobilio scored 72 for an identical 140 with Emma Spitz of Australia two shots behind (70) followed by Hoyu An of Chinese Taipei (72). "I’m hoping for a windy day tomorrow. We handled it well yesterday and hopefully a different wind tomorrow will give us a different look at the golf course, fresh perspective," said Gibson. Carl Jano Corpus also struggled the entire day, limping home with a 76 to fall 10 strokes behind the lead. The 17-year-old bogeyed twice on the front nine and registered three more bogeys on hole nos. 13, 14, 15 after a double bogey on the 10th. Karl Vilips of Australia grabbed the lead (69-68-137) while the only highlight for Corpus was a single birdie on the par-5 No. 11. "Carl had the same problem today. They putted really well yesterday but didn’t putt as well today," said Gibson. Oliva made it to the 200m freestyle finals at the Olympic Park swimming pool but finished seventh in the medal race after clocking 2:02.1. "To make it in the YOG finals is one huge accomplishment for any junior swimmer. Amazing," said Philippine Swimming Inc. president Lani Velasco. "She made top eight in the 200m free event with five heats competing against 36 countries."
