Seahawks suffer yet another road divisional playoff loss

CHARLES ODUM, AP Sports Writer br /> ATLANTA (AP) — Another road divisional round playoff loss didn't shake Russell Wilson's confidence the Seahawks can win away from Seattle at this stage of the postseason. The list of road postseason losses is daunting, however. Seattle's 36-20 loss at Atlanta on Saturday marked the second straight year the Seahawks' season ended with a road divisional round playoff loss, following last year's loss at Carolina. The Seahawks had home-field advantage through the NFC playoffs while making two straight Super Bowl appearances in the 2013 and 2014 seasons. They lost road divisional playoff games in the 2012 and 2010 seasons, to Atlanta and Chicago, respectively. 'I don't think you have to be at home,' Wilson said. 'I think you just have to find a way to win.' Wilson said he was reminded of the loss five years ago in Atlanta when he was a rookie. He said all the success he and the Seahawks have experienced since that loss is a good reason to remain confident — even in road playoff games. 'I think back to 2012, I was young and I was a rookie and I was being put in a position to play and a lot of people told me I couldn't do it,' Wilson said. 'Now for me I think about how far I've come, winning a Super Bowl, winning multiple playoff games, winning as many games as we have. Why would I doubt anything else when I think about what's ahead?' The Seahawks might have pulled off Saturday's road win over the Falcons if not for two key plays. Seattle appeared to be in excellent position to extend a 10-7 lead when Devin Hester returned a punt 80 yards to the Atlanta 7. Instead, a costly holding call against Kevin Pierre-Louis pushed the Seahawks all the way back to the Seattle 7. Cheap flag? Nope. Pierre-Louis conceded 'I was holding' on Atlanta's LaRoy Reynolds. 'I grabbed him a little bit so he wouldn't get down to Hester,' Pierre-Louis said. 'But the referee was able to see it. It cost us.' Two plays later, Wilson was tripped by backup right guard Rees Odhiambo and fell in the end zone for a safety. Hester, who played for the Falcons in 2014-15, said the play 'kind of put a dent in the momentum.' If so, it was a huge dent. Seahawks coach Pete Carroll called the penalty 'a huge turnaround. Just as obvious as you can get, a 70-something yard penalty was just ridiculously large play in the game.' Carroll said the safety 'wasn't the worst thing that happened.' The Falcons seized momentum, however, and scored 10 points on their next two drives to lead 19-10 at halftime. Wilson said the punt return wasn't the only game-changing play. His 58-yard completion to Paul Richardson to the Atlanta 22 with less than 3 minutes remaining was ruled no catch on a review. 'We believe if we had hit that, we score on the next play and the game is real close,' Wilson said. .....»»

Almadro, Vicente, Acaylar lead nat'l team coach list

Ateneo de Manila University coach Oliver Almadro, University of the East’s Francis Vicente and Perpetual Help tactician Sammy Acaylar lead the shortlist of mentors Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. is looking into to call the shots for the national women’s team that will see action in the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur. The association has in its list 23 names limited to the members of the LVPI coaches commission. LVPI acting president Peter Cayco said that they will narrow down the list to 8 to 6 coaches for interview and in a week’s time he will recommend one to the board who will take the position. Among the names in the list, Almadro and Acaylar stood out as possible national team coaches as they led their respective collegiate teams to the throne. Almadro steered the Blue Eagles to back-to-back UAAP men’s volleyball titles and was the head coach of the men’s U-23 team and Singapore Southeast Asian Games two years ago while Acaylar led Altas back on top of the NCAA in Season 91 and was part of the coaching staff of the national squad that won gold in the 1993 SEA Games in Singapore. Acaylar also coached the national team in the 2015 AVC Asian Senior Women's Championship in China.  Vicente, meanwhile, handled the national youth team in a couple of international stints last year. Macky Carino of defending NCAA women’s volleyball champion College of St. Benilde and Obet Javier of NCAA Season 90 titlist Arellano University are some of the other prominent names on the list. Other big names like multi-titled mentor Ramil de Jesus of reigning UAAP champion De La Salle and University of Sto. Tomas’ Kungfu Reyes all begged off for various reasons but are willing to offer their help and support.                 San Sebastian College and National University mentor Roger Gorayeb, who called the shots for the national team in the 2015 SEA Games, is not included in the list “Ang kailangan natin ay ‘yung may oras,” said Cayco. “Meron d’yan magagaling pero wala naman silang oras.” LVPI is also looking to tap Serbian mentor Moro Branislav, who handled the PSL-F2 Logistics Manila in the 2016 FIVB Women’s Club World Championship and the Philippine Superliga back-to-back Grand Prix champion Foton, as team consultant.  The chosen head coach will be tasked to form a 16-woman pool. As part of the preparation the national team will play in the Asian Women’s Volleyball Championship from August 9 to 17 before heading to Malaysia for the SEA Games from August 19 to 31.   “We have all time to prepare and that’s the best part,” Cayco said. Also included in the list are Lerma Giron, Mac Gepuela, Marcelo Joaquin, Jason Gabales, Michael Inoferio, Bryan Esquibel, Raymund Castillo, Jeremiah Barrica, Raplh Dablo, Leovimo Rivera, Michael Santos, Roberto Javier, Carl Bryan Vitus, Richard Estacio, Ruel Pascual, Leonardo Toyco, Benjamin Mape, Michael Carino, Dexter Clamor and Alvin Dumalaog. The participation of the men’s team in the SEA Games is yet to be discussed.       --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»
