PVL: Lady Warriors seek to end campaign on winning note

Pocari Sweat-Air Force and Adamson-Akari clash in a battle of ousted teams Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Open Conference at the Batangas City Coliseum. Already eliminated in the semifinals race, the two squads collide at 4:00 p.m. hoping to end their respective slumps. The match will air live on LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183 and via livestream. The Lady Warriors are looking to close their campaign in the season-ending conference on a winning note after missing the Final Four for the first time in franchise history. Pocari Sweat, which is coming of a straight sets win over Iriga-Navy, sports a 6-7 win-loss record and is tied with Tacloban. Plagued by stinging five-set losses, the Lady Warriors' hunt for the last best-of-three semifinals berth ended after PetroGazz clinched its eighth win. Meanwhile, the Lady Falcons march into their 13th outing still searching for the elusive win. Bitten by the injury bug throughout the conference, the Collegiate Conference bronze medal winner Adamson-Akari struggled. The Lady Falcons absorbed a straight-set drubbing at the hands of the Angels last Sunday but did found some bright spot in the match after top hitter Eli Soyud saw action for the first time.            Though playing only in the third set, Soyud’s five-point outing is good news for Adamson-Akari which is using the tournament as part of its preparation for the UAAP next year.             --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles  .....»»

It's official.  Eight-division boxing world champion and current reigning WBA (regular) Welterweight World Champion Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao will be making his way back into the squared-circle next January.  Pacquiao, who will be 40 years old by fight night, will be defending his title against former four-division world champion Adrien Broner on January 19th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.  The welterweight title bout will be Pacquiao's return to the US after a two-year absence.         View this post on Instagram                   PACQUIAO vs BRONER January 19 | Showtime PPV #PacquiaoBroner A post shared by Manny Pacquiao (@mannypacquiao) on Nov 19, 2018 at 11:14am PST "I just want to prove that I’m still in boxing, Manny Pacquiao is still in boxing, and my career is just continuing, my journey in boxing is continuing," Pacquiao said during the officiall press conference in New York, early Tuesday morning, Manila time.

Everyone knows about Adrien Broner,"  Broner was significantly more animated on the microphone, as he addressed the fight and had some pretty interesting words for Pacquiao as well.  "I’m happy, there’s a lot of people who wanted this fight, and God blessed me to get it, I’m just the chosen one." "It’s gonna be a hell of a fight. All bullsh*t aside, I’m not just coming here to pick up a check. F*ck the money.

Portugal qualifies for finals, Italy earn positives in draw

By Daniella Matar, Associated Press MILAN (AP) — No Cristiano Ronaldo, no problem. Portugal drew with Italy 0-0 on Saturday to pick up the point it needed to qualify for the UEFA Nations League finals and confirm it as host of the first Final Four in June. Ronaldo is taking a break from the national team and wasn't present at San Siro, just as he wasn't in Portugal's first two Nations League matches — both of which they won. "There's a lot of satisfaction at having reached the final phase," Portugal coach Fernando Santos said. "It was a difficult match, much more than we thought it would be. When we had the ball it was difficult to build and that was merit to Italy and demerit to us. Italy had a great game." Poland has already been assured of finishing last in Group A3 and will be relegated to League B, and Italy will finish second. However, a year after Italian football's darkest moment, there are positive signs for the Azzurri. Italy dominated and had the better of the chances in front of a packed crowd in Milan but ended with a sixth successive home draw. The Azzurri have also scored only twice in four matches in the competition — but only conceded as many. "I don't think there's so many problems up front, it's a question of five centimeters here, 10 there," Italy coach Roberto Mancini said. The Azzurri almost took the lead as early as the fifth minute. Lorenzo Insigne unleashed a scorcher from distance which Portugal goalkeeper Rui Patricio did well to bat away, and Ciro Immobile fired the rebound over from point-blank range. There was a lot of good interplay from the hosts with crisp, efficient passing in the best performance seen by an Italy side in a long time. It was a far cry from Italy's last match at San Siro, when it drew with Sweden 0-0 last November and failed to qualify for the World Cup for the first time in six decades. "Little by little we'll manage to sort out the attack, too," Mancini said. "Having so much possession in their half is something very significant. We're a step further ahead than we thought we'd be. We have to resolve this small problem (of scoring) but we will." The fans are also starting to fall back in love with the Azzurri, with 73,000 spectators at San Siro. LEAGUE B Sweden kept alive its hopes of promotion with a 1-0 victory at Turkey, which was relegated to League C. Andreas Granqvist netted the only goal with a second-half penalty after Okay Yokuslu brought down Marcus Berg. Sweden will be promoted on Tuesday if it beats Russia, which leads Group B2. LEAGUE C Scotland will win Group C1 if it beats Israel on Tuesday following a 4-0 victory over 10-man Albania in Tirana. Ryan Fraser scored his first international goal shortly before Albania captain Mergim Mavraj was sent off. Steven Fletcher doubled Scotland's tally from the penalty spot, and James Forrest netted a second-half double. Serbia beat Montenegro 2-1 despite Aleksandar Mitrovic missing a penalty and will win Group C4 if it beats Lithuania on Tuesday. Mitrovic scored Serbia's second, two minutes after Adem Ljajic opened the scoring, before chipping over from the spot. Lithuania lost 3-0 at Romania, which will go up if it beats Montenegro and Serbia fails to win. LEAGUE D Kosovo beat Malta 5-0 and Azerbaijan beat the Faroe Islands 2-0. The teams set up a winner-takes-all clash when they meet on Tuesday in Group D3, although a draw would be enough for Kosovo. The Nations League also offers a second chance to qualify for the European Championship in 2020. The 16 group winners in Leagues A, B, C and D — or the next best-placed teams who have not already qualified via the European qualifiers starting in March — will progress to the playoffs to compete for the last four qualifying places......»»
