Sancho dedicates Dortmund derby-winning goal to grandmother

By Ciaran Fahey, Associated Press BERLIN (AP) — Jadon Sancho pointed to the sky after scoring Borussia Dortmund's winning goal for a 2-1 victory over the club's biggest rival, Schalke, on Saturday. Then came the tears. Sancho dedicated the goal to his recently deceased grandmother after becoming Dortmund's youngest goal-scorer in the Ruhr derby, Germany's biggest, at age 18. "The goal means everything to my family. Sadly my grandmother passed away so that goal was for her," the England winger said. "I'm glad that I got the goal and helped the team get three points." Sancho's classy finish kept Dortmund nine points clear of Bundesliga defending champion Bayern Munich, which kept pace and moved second with a 3-0 win over promoted Nuremberg in their Bavarian derby in Munich. But Sancho's thoughts were elsewhere. "It was a difficult week for him," Dortmund coach Lucien Favre said. "Jadon only came back yesterday evening from London. But he really wanted to train and play." Sancho sealed the unbeaten visitors' 11th win from 14 games with a fine finish in the 74th minute, restoring Dortmund's lead after Daniel Caligiuri equalized from the penalty spot. Thomas Delaney had given Dortmund an early lead. Dortmund's players celebrated with gusto in front of the traveling support. It was the club's first derby win in three years. Delaney became the team's 16th scorer in the league this season - a Bundesliga record at this stage - when he guided Marco Reus' free kick past Ralf Faehrmann in the Schalke goal. Dortmund goalkeeper Roman Buerki then thwarted Guido Bergstaller in the home side's best chance. The Schalke forward had to go off injured shortly afterward. Caligiuri's penalty came after the hour mark. The spot kick was awarded through VAR - after play had continued - for a foul by Reus on Amine Harit. The Dortmund captain complained vehemently against the decision. Tempers frayed afterward, leading to a melee. Achraf Hakimi was booked for shoving, minutes before Reus followed his teammate in the referee's notebook for a tactical foul. Sancho, already a firm favorite among Dortmund fans for his outstanding season, endeared himself further with the winner. Sancho eluded two defenders and played a one-two with Raphael Guerreiro to evade another before he curled the ball inside the far post. CRISIS OVER Robert Lewandowski scored twice in the first half for Bayern, which appears to have put talk of a crisis behind it after three consecutive wins across all competitions. But Nuremberg was always going to be a welcome guest in Munich, where it hadn't won in 14 games. The promoted side has only two wins since its return to the top flight and was thrashed 7-0 in Dortmund and 6-0 in Leipzig. Franck Ribery sealed Bayern's win with his first goal of the season in the second half, which had been delayed after home fans threw hundreds of rolls of toilet paper toward the field. Also, Freiburg defeated Leipzig 3-0 at home, Bayer Leverkusen earned a 1-0 win at home over Augsburg, and Wolfsburg and Hoffenheim drew 2-2. Marko Grujic's first-half header was enough for Hertha Berlin to defeat Eintracht Frankfurt 1-0 in the late game to climb to sixth, level on 23 points with the visitors, who slumped to their second straight defeat......»»

With 2 good shoulders, Lomachenko seeks 2 lightweight titles

By Brian Mahoney, Associated Press NEW YORK (AP) — Vasiliy Lomachenko is back and ready to show what he can do with two healthy shoulders. Injured while winning one lightweight belt, Lomachenko while try to add a second in his return from surgery when he faces Jose Pedraza on Saturday night in the Theater at Madison Square Garden. Lomachenko (11-1, 9 KOs) is already a champion in three weight classes, but this is the first time he can unify belts within a division. "It's the next step for my dream," Lomachenko said. "It's the next step for my goal, and after this fight I think my dreams come a little bit closer to me." That could include a 135-pound showdown with unbeaten Mikey Garcia but seemingly won't include a fight with Manny Pacquiao, because Lomachenko, whose career is going along just fine, doesn't believe he needs to enhance it by beating what he said is an "old legend" about to turn 40. "There are a lot of good fighters to fight who are comparable to me," Lomachenko said. "He's old. I think his career is done. I don't want to become a legend in boxing because of him." But he can do it by unifying titles, and this is the two-time Olympic gold medalist from Ukraine's first chance to do it. He moved up in weight and won the WBA title from Jorge Linares in May despite tearing the labrum in his right shoulder in the second round. Lomachenko got up from a sixth-round knockdown to stop Linares in the 10th, then underwent surgery. While Lomachenko was recovering, Pedraza (25-1, 12 KOs) won the WBO title from Ray Beltran to secure the fight with Lomachenko, who has eight straight victories by stoppage. "We know that he's a great fighter. He's a complete fighter," Pedraza said through a translator. Pedraza was out for 14 months after his lone loss, when Gervonta Davis took his junior lightweight title by stoppage in January 2017, but has come back strong by winning three fights this year. The victory over Beltran made him the second Puerto Rican man to win titles at 130 and 135 pounds, and an upset of Lomachenko would bring even more pride to his homeland that's still recovering from disaster. "It will be the first Christmas after what happened with Hurricane Maria, so definitely me winning on Saturday would bring a lot of joy and blessing to the island," Pedraza said. The undercard of the fight, to be televised by ESPN, includes 2016 Olympian Teofimo Lopez (10-0, 8 KOs) facing Mason Menard (34-3, 24 KOs) in a lightweight bout, and Isaac Dogboe (20-0, 14 KOs) defending his WBO junior featherweight title against Mexican Emanuel Navarrete (25-1, 22 KOs). Then Lomachenko fights for the third straight time at Madison Square Garden and expects no problems with his shoulder. He said he's been able to use all his punches in sparring and may have benefited from the break for the injury, which delayed a planned August fight. He had nearly 400 fights as an amateur and has been on a quest to quickly accumulate as many titles as possible as a pro. A fight with Garcia could provide him a chance for another, but the WBC's 135-pound champion is moving up two divisions to challenge welterweight champion Errol Spence Jr. in March. Lomachenko has no plans to move up any further for now after beginning his career at 126 pounds, but he thinks a matchup with Garcia will happen, assuming he comes back down. "I think this fight will happen," Lomachenko said. "Then, I don't know."  .....»»

‘Narcos: Mexico’ runs to second season

Netflix's "Narcos: Mexico" has generated enough return for the streaming network to declare that a second season is in the pipeline. Less than a month after its debut, Spanish- and English-language crime drama "Narcos: Mexico" is set for a second season, Netflix has announced. At one point conceived of as the fourth season of drug trade crime drama "Narcos", and in many ways still occupying that function, "Narcos: Mexico" turns from Colombian trafficking to the gestation of the Mexican cartel empire in the 1980s. Specifically, it focuses on the rise of the Guadalajara and, with a small amount of cast crossover, introduces Diego Luna ("Rogue One", "If Beale Street Could Talk"...Keep on reading: ‘Narcos: Mexico’ runs to second season.....»»

Second UAAP title sweeter for Nieto twins as they match dad’s feat

Matt and Mike Nieto didn't just have a twin thing; the whole Ateneo team had one---sort of. When the twins got sidelined with injuries and dengue in the middle part of the UAAP Season 81 men's basketball tournament, the whole team picked up the slack until the brothers were able to return to form at the tail end of the Blue Eagles' schedule.
