Mau delivers in debut for 2-0 Cargo Movers

Fil-American Kalei Mau debuted with na bang for F2 Logistics as she powered the Cargo Movers to a 25-15, 27-25, 25-22, demolition of PLDT Home Fibr on Tuesday in the 2019 Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Mau, who missed the team’s first game to give her more time to learn head coach Ramil De Jesus’ system, hammered 14 kill blocks with two aces and a kill block for 17 points for F2 Logistics, which won their second straight match. “Not bad para sa unang game ng bago sa team,” said De Jesus referring to Mau, who had 14 digs and eight excellent receptions. Team captain Aby Marano, Ara Galang and Kim Kianna Dy scored nine markers each for the Cargo Movers. Grethcel Soltones and Gen Casugod had 14 and 11 points, respectively, for PLDT.     Meanwhile, Generika-Ayala vented its ire on Marinerang Pilipinas following a 25-18, 25-15, 25-23 win for a 1-1 win-loss slate. After getting blown out by F2 Logistics straight sets in the opener last Saturday, the Lifesavers bounced back to barge into the win column, sending the Lady Skippers to their second straight loss in one hour and 23 minutes. Patty Orendain, who struggled on opener, put up an all-around performance for Generika-Ayala with 18 points off 15 attacks, a pair of aces and a block and had 16 digs and eight excellent receptions. Ria Meneses and Fiola Ceballos had 11 points each while Angeli Araneta added eight markers for the Lifesavers. Dimdim Pacres was the lone double digits scorer with 11 points while Chiara Permentilla scored seven markers off the bench for the Lady Skippers. In the other match, Elaine Kasilag finished with a game-high 20 points in Foton’s 17-25, 25-18, 25-16, 25-21, victory over Sta. Lucia. Didin Santiago-Manabat had 16 points while Jaja Santiago and Maika Ortiz posted 11 markers apiece for the Tornadoes, which recovered from a poor start. MJ Phillips led the Lady Realtors with 19 points while Amanda Villanueva finished with 13 markers, 13 digs and 12 excellent receptions in a lost cause.  .....»»

Germany beats South Africa 4-0 to win World Cup group

By Joseph Wilson, Associated Press MONTPELLIER, France (AP) — Germany is playing like a title contender, just at the right time. After seeing her team start the Women's World Cup with a pair of one-goal wins, Germany coach Martina Voss-Tecklenburg told her players to keep the game simple. Germany played to its status as the world's second-ranked side and one of the top challengers hoping to dethrone the United States, routing South Africa 4-0 on Monday to top Group B with a 3-0 record. The Germans will play a third-place team in the round of 16 instead of the possibility of an immediate matchup with the Americans. After Germany grinded out 1-0 wins over China and Spain, its offense broke out with three goals in the first half at Montpellier's Stade de la Mosson, matching its total in its previous five World Cup games combined. "I told my players that we should keep it simple," Voss-Tecklenburg said. "The players performed very well. They showed that football can really be very simple sometimes. ... There were moments within the match when we tried to go for the more difficult solution. That's something we can work on." Displaying a varied attack, Germany generated a constant stream of scoring opportunities and could have easily won by a bigger margin. Melanie Leupolz opened the scoring in the 14th minute with her first goal for Germany since the 2016 Olympics. Sara Däbritz doubled the lead in the 29th minute from a goal-keeping blunder, Alexandra Popp made it 3-0 in the 40th and Lina Magull added the final goal in the 58th. "I think we are ready for the round of 16," Däbritz said. "Our goal was to come in first, and we are really happy about that." South Africa was winless in group play and outscored 8-1. At 49th, South Africa had the lowest ranking of the 24 teams in the tournament. Spain finished Group B as runner-up after a 0-0 draw with China and advanced to the knockout stage for the first time. Spain will face the winner of Group F on Monday at Reims, and the United States would be the opponent with a victory or draw in its final group match against Sweden. Two-time tournament champion Germany has not lost a match in group play since falling to Sweden in 1995. "Germany has won tournaments that it started out with difficulties," Voss-Tecklenburg said. "It would be great to have the same this time. All the matches will be challenges, and I hope we will be able to meet them all." Germany didn't miss the playmaking of Dzsenifer Marozsan, who broke a toe in its opener. Voss-Tecklenburg said she couldn't guarantee the Lyon midfielder will be ready for the round of 16. Leupolz put Germany ahead when she was left all alone on the edge of the 6-yard box to deftly nod a corner kick into the far corner of the net. Däbritz made it 2-0 after a mistake by goalkeeper Andile Dlamini, who turned what appeared to be a poor German pass into a perfect assist. Left back Verena Schweers's cross looked like an easy grab for Dlamini, only for Dlamini to parry the ball right into the path of Däbritz, who got her second goal of the tournament. "We conceded poorly from a set piece and a second goal, as well, and were on our back foot from there," South Africa coach Desiree Ellis said. Germany boosted the lead to 3-0 with pure power. Popp, the team captain, jumped over her marker to drive home a header. Magull got the fourth goal when she rushed in to finish off a save by Dlamini, who did well to push a header by Marina Hegering off the post, only to see the ball bounce across the open goalmouth. Only Dlamini's sharp reflexes saved South Africa from a greater defeat. "We always knew it would be a challenge," Ellis said. "We are happy with the performance but not the result.".....»»

Australia and Sam Kerr quiet the haters at the World Cup

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press Australia's path to the Women's World Cup was turbulent even before its upset loss in the opening round. That loss to Italy in stoppage time was a terrible start for a team that some consider one of the tournament favorites. The Matildas feature Sam Kerr, their back-flipping global superstar captain, and the forward has urged her teammates to tune out criticism that followed the loss to Italy. "Ah mate, It's just outside noise, we don't listen to the haters. Look at that performance coming back from the deep," Kerr said. "I love these girls, they're something else." Italy scored in stoppage time, an upset considered the surprise of the World Cup. But Australia beat Brazil 1-0 to earn a spot in the round of 16 and closes Group C play at Stade des Alpes in Grenoble, France against Jamaica on Tuesday. Kerr has been feisty since arriving at the World Cup and the openly gay player used Twitter this week to reveal a homophobic message she had received. Kerr has been with the national team since 2009 and has 32 goals in 79 games. But she hadn't scored in a World Cup until the opener when she put the Matildas in front of Italy with a goal in the 22nd minute. She celebrated by punching the corner flag in a tribute to Australian great Tim Cahill. But Barbara Bonasea scored a pair of goals, including the game-winner in stoppage time, to give Italy the win and stun Australia. The Italy loss was one Australia didn't need after months of controversy surrounding the team. The Australian federation dismissed coach Alen Stajcic in January after an internal review revealed a "toxic" team culture. Stajcic denied any issues. He was replaced by Ante Milicic, an assistant on Australia's men's team, who had just a half-dozen exhibition games to prepare with his new team. After the loss to Italy, Milicic suggested that his team would just have to advance "the hard way." Indeed, the match against Brazil wasn't easy. Australia fell behind two goals before rallying for a 3-2 victory on a controversial own goal. The Matildas became just the second team to win a World Cup match after going down two goals. Afterward, Milicic addressed the critics of the team, too. "The important thing is that we, as a staff, give these girls every opportunity to do well in this tournament," he said. "The outside noise stays out." Chloe Logarzo suggested it's characteristic of her nation to never quit, and to ignore their detractors. "The Australian mentality is to come out swinging," Logarzo said. "We like a good fight.".....»»

Lloyd, a World Cup starter again, scores 2 as US beats Chile

By Anne M. Peterson, Associated Press PARIS (AP) — Carli Lloyd wasn't thrilled to open the Women's World Cup on the bench for the United States. She accepted the role, but made no secret she wanted to start. When the call came Sunday, Lloyd made it count with a pair of goals to lead the defending champions to a 3-0 victory over Chile. The win pushed the United States into the round of 16. Lloyd was the hero of the World Cup in Canada four years ago when she scored three goals in the final against Japan that gave the Americans their third World Cup title. But she was on the bench when the U.S. opened the tournament, even though she scored later as a substitute in the 13-0 victory over Thailand. "I know that my ability is there, I know this is my best version of me. I've just got to go out there and prove it," she said. "Whether that's coming off the bench and making an impact, whether that's starting and getting the opportunity, which I'm grateful for, I'm just trying to make the most of it. I want to win." Lloyd became the first player to score in six straight World Cup matches with her goal in the 11th minute. She added another on a header off a corner in the 35th for her 10th career World Cup goal, which moved her into third on the U.S. list behind Abby Wambach (14) and Michelle Akers (12). At 36, she became the oldest player to have a multi-goal game in the tournament. She nearly got another hat trick — which would have made her the first player with two in the World Cup — but her penalty kick in the 81st minute went wide left. "It's haunting me right now," Lloyd said. "Wasn't good enough." The score could have been worse for Chile without unshakable goalkeeper Christiane Endler, who finished with six saves and fended off a flurry of U.S. shots in the second half. Endler was named player of the match. "I love the balls coming towards me and being able to showcase my skills," she said through a translator. "Obviously it's difficult to maintain concentration. I think in the first half it was difficult for me to get into the game. I think the second half went better for me and in general for the team." The victory over Chile was more subdued than the U.S. team's record-breaking rout of Thailand. The Americans celebrated every goal even after the win was well in hand, and the display offended many who thought the champions should have shown more class. The controversy clouded the run-up to the match against Chile. Several of the American players reached out to their Thai counterparts following the match. Lloyd exchanged encouraging words and tweets with goalkeeper Sukanya Chor Charoenying, and FIFA posted an interview with Thailand's coach thanking the U.S. players for being professional and playing well. After such a rout, Jill Ellis made sweeping changes to the starting lineup against Chile, including a new front line with Lloyd, Christen Press and Mallory Pugh. Alex Morgan was moved to the bench along with Megan Rapinoe and Tobin Heath. Becky Sauerbrunn, who sat out the match against Thailand because of a minor quad injury, returned and anchored a backline that included 20-year-old Tierna Davidson, who was making her World Cup debut. Davidson is the youngest player to start for the United States in a World Cup since Tiffany Roberts against Norway in 1995. Chile made just one lineup change, starting midfielder Claudia Soto in place of Yanara Aedo. Chile lost its opener to Sweden 2-0, but Endler was solid in that game, too, keeping the Swedes out of the goal until 83rd minute. The second goal got past the 6-footer in stoppage time. Julie Ertz scored in the 26th minute with a header off a corner kick from Davidson that Endler got her hands on but couldn't stop. It was Ertz's first World Cup goal and came with her husband Zach Ertz, a tight end for the Philadelphia Eagles, looking on. Endler denied Lloyd another chance at the hat trick when she tipped the U.S. captain's shot over the net in the 72nd minute. Sweden also advanced out of Group F with a victory 5-1 victory over Thailand earlier Sunday in Nice. Japan, playing in Group D with England, also went through to the knockout stage because both the United States and Sweden won. Former Vice President Joe Biden was among the U.S. team's well-wishers before the sold-out game at Parc des Princes stadium. Biden, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for president in 2020, referenced the team's lawsuit against U.S. Soccer alleging gender discrimination and seeking equitable pay. "As we cheer them on in the World Cup, we must support their fight off the field for equal pay. In 2019, it's past time we close the pay gap and ensure women get paid as much as men," Biden tweeted. U.S. soccer maintains the two teams have different pay structures because of separate collective bargaining agreements. But for now, the players are concentrating on France and bringing home a fourth World Cup championship. The United States plays Sweden on Thursday to wrap up the group stage. It is the first meeting between the two teams since Sweden ousted the Americans from the quarterfinals at the 2016 Olympics. Chile wraps up the group with a match against Thailand on Thursday......»»

Qatar building for 2022 World Cup on Copa America debut

By Mauricio Savarese, Associated Press RIO DE JANEIRO (AP) — For 2022 World Cup host Qatar, every Copa America match will be like a final. Sunday's clash against Paraguay at the historic Maracana stadium is especially so because it is probably the team's best chance to pick up points in the tournament. Qatar's Spanish coach Felix Sanchez told journalists on Saturday his team will try to compete at a high level in all three group stage matches against Argentina, Colombia and Paraguay. He believes the first two are candidates to win the title, meaning the game against the Paraguayans represents the best chance for Asian Cup holder Qatar to register a victory. "It will be like a final," said Sanchez. "But it will be the same against Argentina and Colombia. These are all great footballing nations." Qatar, which is making its Copa America debut, lost a friendly against hosts Brazil 2-0 earlier this month. Brazil coach Tite said he was impressed with Qatar's defense, although the team's ball possession was not as good as it was in the Asian Cup. Paraguay is trying to rebuild under coach Eduardo Berizzo after failing to qualify for the last two World Cups. "It is a team that counters very well, that can adapt to different tactics. They have a great offense," Berizzo said of Qatar. Paraguay's coach, however, thinks his team is the favorite to win in Rio de Janeiro. "We need to reaffirm our identity," he said. Sanchez, who took over in July 2017 and had his contract extended to 2022 just before the Copa America, said matches like these will help the team reach a higher level before the World Cup. "We have to forget what happened in the UAE and focus here," the Spanish coach said, in a reference to the venue for his team's Asian Cup triumph. "For us to get there (2022) in good conditions, we have to play tournaments like this." Qatar captain Hassan Al-Haydos, who was taking selfies on the Maracana pitch before the press conference, agreed. "We are here to develop, to adapt and to grow," the striker said. "It is an honor to be in this tournament and to be in Brazil with so many other great teams." Next year Qatar will return for another Copa America in Argentina and Colombia. In 2021, the tiny nation will stage the Confederations Cup......»»

Cargo Movers, Lady Realtors win debut games

New recruit Kalei Mau wasn’t available, but F2 Logistics still took care of business as it dominated Generika-Ayala in straight sets, 25-12, 25-21, 25-17, to kick off their bid in the Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference on a high note Saturday at the Filoil Flying V Centre in San Juan. Mau, the prized Filipino-American spiker, was limited into a mere cheerleader as the Cargo Movers crushed the Lifesaver. Team manager Hollie Reyes said they are giving Mau a little more time to adjust and study the system of head coach Ramil de Jesus. Still, the connection of current De La Salle University stars worked as skipper Aby Marano provided the defense with five of the Cargo Movers’ 11 blocks. Maraño delivered 15 points off nine spikes, five blocks and an ace, while Ara Galang nailed 10 kills for 11 points laced up with 11 digs. Majoy Baron and Desiree Cheng were also instrumental with eight points apiece as well as Kianna Dy returning from knee injury with seven markers. "Maganda sa side namin, at least may La Salle connection, yun yung advantage,” said de Jesus.  Meanwhile, Sta. Lucia spoiled the debut of Marinerang Pilipina, 25-23, 25-22, 25-23, to kick off its campaign on a high note. Filipino-American MJ Philips provided the offense, delivering 22 points and 16 digs for the Lady Realtors. Team captain Pam Lastimosa and Amanda Villanueva chipped in 11 points apiece while Rachel Austero added 10 markers on top of the game-winning attack. After taking a two-set lead and holding a 19-14 cushion in the third set, the Lady Realtors flirted with disaster as the Lady Skippers uncorked a 9-1 run to take a 23-20 lead. But the Lady Realtors fought back with five straight points with four coming from Phillips and Austero. Cesca Racraquin had 12 points laced up with 21 digs and nine excellent receptions while Judith Abil and Dimdim Pacres added 11 and 10 markers, respectively, for the Lady Skippers. After dominating the first set, the Cargo Movers needed to escape a neck-and-neck encounter late in the second set only holding a precarious 19-18 lead before Maraño and Galang towed their team for a two-set lead. F2 Logistics caught fire in the third with a fiery 18-11 spread before Generika-Ayala scored four straight points to make it a three-point game.  But the Cargo Movers vaunted their killer instincts scoring seven of the last nine points with substitute Aduke Ogunsanya providing the back-to-back winning points, a quick attack and an ace. Fiola Ceballos was the lone bright spot with 10 points while Libero Kath Arado had 17 digs and seven excellent receptions for the Lifesavers.  .....»»
