Jedinak stars as Australia qualifies for 2018 World Cup

JOHN PYE, AP Sports Writer SYDNEY (AP) — Mile Jedinak didn't miss when it counted, propelling Australia into next year's World Cup with three goals in Wednesday's 3-1 intercontinental playoff victory over Honduras. The Australia captain was in doubt for the series with a groin injury that had forced him to miss end of the Asian qualifying campaign, when his team narrowly missed out on direct entry to the tournament in Russia. But Jedinak played a full game in the 0-0 draw in San Pedro Sula last Friday and, aided by the state-of-the-art rehabilitation program on Australia's charter flight home, took the free kick that broke the scoring drought in the 54th minute at Sydney's Olympic stadium. His free kick curled to the left of the wall and deflected sharply in off defender Henry Figueroa, bringing the parochial 77,060-strong crowd at Sydney's Olympic stadium to life. He converted from the spot in the 72nd after referee Nestor Pitana penalized Bryan Acosta for a hand ball and again calmly slotted home another penalty after Robbie Kruse was dragged down in the area in the 85th to ensure Australia qualified for its fourth consecutive World Cup. "I'll take them all," Jedinak said. "It wouldn't have mattered who scored. I'm happy to chip in." Honduras scored a consolation goal deep in injury time in a scramble in front of goal with Alberth Elis and Maynor Figueroa both swiping at the ball from close range. The result meant Asia got a full quota of five teams into the World Cup in Russia, with 31 of the 32 places decided. Peru was hosting New Zealand for the last spot later Wednesday. Under-fire coach Ange Postecoglou said he was delighted for his team, and declined to comment on his future with the Socceroos amid speculation that he may not stay on for the World Cup. "They got what they deserved — it wasn't by luck or by chance," Postecoglou said. "They believed in something that we started, and right to the end they displayed the kind of resilience and belief that has made me proud all the way along. They did it their way, and got great rewards for it." While the Australians invested heavily in the charter flight to get home Sunday after the first leg, the Honduras squad took a commercial flight and arrived a day later. But with veteran skipper Maynor Figueroa returning, and with Elis adding pace on the flank, Honduras lifted its tempo in the first half and frustrated the Australian attack. Honduras coach Jorge Luis Pinto said the Australians clearly worked to neutralize Elis out wide, and the momentum shift was too great after the opening goal. "Australia were very strong and aggressive and put pressure on us. In the first half the game was more balanced — in the second half, the (first) goal took a toll," Pinto said. "The second goal, there was contact with the player's hand, but it wasn't intentional." Honduras earned a playoff spot with a 3-2 win over Mexico on a hectic last day of qualifying in North and Central America and the Caribbean, securing fourth spot and ensuring the U.S. missed out. Australia advanced after beating Syria for fifth place in Asian qualifying, with veteran Tim Cahill scoring twice in Sydney, and setting up the intercontinental playoff. Cahill was involved when Australia edged Uruguay on penalties in a playoff in 2005 to qualify for the following year's World Cup in Germany. He was also there when the Australians qualified directly from Asia for 2010 and 2014. There is a good chance he'll be in Russia, too, even after he has turned 38. The final word went to the jubilant Jedinak, a veteran midfielder who plays for Aston Villa in England. "We got the job done and that's all that matters — it's going to be a big 2018," he said......»»

Irving, Celtics hold off Hawks in closing minutes

By George Henry, Associated Press ATLANTA (AP) — Kyrie Irving scored 35 points, Jayson Tatum added 21 and the Boston Celtics held off the Atlanta Hawks 110-107 Monday night (Tuesday, PHL time) for their ninth straight victory. Irving’s triple from the right wing put the Celtics up 104-103 — the game’s 25th lead change — with 1:37 remaining, and Boston led the rest of the way. Dennis Schroder had 23 points for the rebuilding Hawks, who dropped to 2-9 a night after a surprising two-point win at Cleveland. Boston improved to 9-2, best in the NBA, and has its longest winning streak in seven years. Al Horford had 15 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists in his best game against the Hawks. Horford spent his first nine seasons in Atlanta before leaving as a free agent ahead of last season and had totals of 20 points and 17 rebounds in three games against the Hawks. Irving had his first 30-point game as a Celtic on a night packed with highlights. He dribbled between his legs and behind his back before hitting a floater off the glass from the left baseline to put Boston up 46-44. He had two impressive assists late in the third with long, one-handed passes that led to 3s by Marcus Smart and Tatum, the latter giving Boston a 72-71 lead. And Irving fed Horford for a dunk that was part of a 13-0 run that put the Celtics up by six. Boston coach Brad Stevens wasn’t pleased with the ball movement or defense early in the third, storming the floor to call timeout after Atlanta’s Luke Babbit hit a triple to put the Hawks up 57-54. Irving took charge, either scoring or assisting on 16 straight points. The Celtics gradually pulled away, taking a 10-point lead early in the fourth on Semi Ojeleye’s triple. RAINING DOWN Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer joked before the game that he regretted having his assistants work with the 6'10" Horford a couple of years ago to develop a strong presence beyond the perimeter. Horford entered the game shooting nearly 52 percent on 33 attempts from the arc. “I think there was just a real push from us and a credit to him that he could do it,” Budenholzer said. “It’s part of the way the game is, and his passing just opens up the court even more for him to drive and attack. He’s such a good player, such a smart player.” TIP-INS Celtics: Irving has scored more points — 245 — than any player in his first 11 games with Boston. ... With Marcus Morris getting the night off to rest his sore left knee, Aron Baynes started at center and finished with just two points and three rebounds in 15 minutes. Hawks: Malcolm Delaney returned after missing two games with a sprained right ankle and had 13 points. Marco Belinelli scored 19 despite a sore left Achilles. UP NEXT Celtics: Host the Lakers on Wednesday night (Thursday, PHL time). Hawks: Off until they visit Detroit on Friday night (Saturday, PHL time)......»»

UST coach Sablan: It takes at least three years to rebuild

Since UST Growling Tigers head coach Boy Sablan took the helm in June 2016, he was aware of the monumental task of taking a squad depleted of star players to victories in the UAAP. Thus far, he has only registered three victories against 24 losses. With a rag-tag squad of players, the Growling Tigers are facing history as the first team to finish a season undefeated, only to go winless later.  Not given the luck of having star players in his squad, Sablan said that the team is still in a state of rebuild after the departure of star players Kevin Ferrer, Karim Abdul, and Ed Daquioag. “Sabi ng isang kataas-taasang pari sa amin, rebuilding process, it takes three years, at least. Noong nag-assume ako last year, noong June, tapon, kasi wala akong time,” Sablan said after the game. In his second season with the team, with much more preparation, the UST tactician added that the players are more experienced, in terms of maturity and exposure.  "Sabi nga ng [UST Alumni Association President], si Mr. Henry Tenedero, sabi niya, there is winning in losing. Ang interpretation sa sarili ko panalo ako sa mga players na ito, dahil wala naman sila a few years back." In the second-to-the-last game of the season, where the Tigers came close against the immaculate Ateneo Blue Eagles, Sablan pointed out the strides of improvement the players have made, with the help of his coaching.  The former Glowing Goldie also said that the team, which will be mostly intact next season, will only get better. “Ang interpretation sa sarili ko panalo ako sa mga players na ito, dahil wala naman sila a few years back. Yung development nila, maganda, siguro yun ang nagawa kong maganda. Panalo ako sa kanila.” --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary......»»
