PVL: Flying Titans eye return to win column

ChocoMucho tries to rebound from a stinging setback as it tangles with struggling newcomer Chef’s Classics on Saturday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 3 Open Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. The Flying Titans opened their campaign on a winning note only to be shot down by PacificTown Army on Wednesday in a record-setting match that saw ChocoMucho walk away with a disappointing result. Licking its wounds that came off a 41-39, 25-19, 19-25, 20-25, 12-15, loss at the hands of the Lady Troopers, ChocoMucho wants to bounce back big time in its 4:00 p.m. assignment. The match will air live on ABS-CBN S+A Channel 23, ABS-CBN S+A HD Channel 166, LIGA SkyCable Channel 86, LIGA HD SkyCable Channel 183, iWant and via livestream.       Kat Tolentino and Maddie Madayag, who scored 23 and 15 points, respectively, the last time out, are expected to deliver their usual numbers with Bang Pineda, Arianna Angustia, Shannen Palec and Cindy Imbo as back up for the Flying Titans. Bea De Leon’s availability to suit up remains a game time decision after missing the squad’s first two games to rest her sore muscles. The Red Spikers have yet to win a game in their maiden stint in the league after absorbing a heavy beating at the hands of Motolite and defending champion Creamline last week in their back-to-back weekend schedule.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

Jets Bell eager for contact, wants teammates to hit him

By Dennis Waszak Jr., Associated Press FLORHAM PARK, N.J. (AP) — Le'Veon Bell wants his teammates to hit him. Nothing too hard or violent, but just enough for him to feel it. The New York Jets running back isn't playing during the preseason, so he's doing whatever he can to be ready for football when the regular season starts. "Give me a little something," he tells some of the veterans on defense. "Go for the ball, things like that, just so I can get prepared." Bell hasn't played in a game in nearly 20 months, a lengthy layoff as a result of his contract dispute with Pittsburgh. He sat out last season, signed with New York in March and is being held out of preseason games as a precaution. The three-time Pro Bowl pick has been getting plenty of action in practice, though. And he feels ready to go. But just to be sure, he goes up to guys such as nose tackle Steve McLendon, linebacker C.J. Mosley and safety Jamal Adams and asks them to get physical. He knows they might be wary, not wanting to injure him — so he'll try to make them angry by running harder, so they'll give him a pop. "I try to do that intentionally just so I can feel it," Bell said. "And, a lot of times you'll start seeing guys a little frustrated and they'll try to hit me back and that's what I need. They won't take me to the ground, they're not really going for my legs. Hitting me up top, things like that, I need all that." Coach Adam Gase understands how important Bell is to his offense, giving quarterback Sam Darnold a versatile playmaker out of the backfield. And from where Gase is watching, he sees a guy who is ready to play. "It's his body demeanor and the way he's attacking the defense," Gase said. "Those guys know the difference between how a guy is going to (practice). Either we're thudding up and they're wrapping up and then when they see him start getting lower and accelerating toward them, they know, OK, he's looking to do some damage here." The Jets have increased Bell's workload in practices the past couple of weeks, and he has been running well. Still, the running back knows the real test won't come until he touches the ball for the first time against Buffalo on Sept. 8. "Obviously, it's still practice," Bell said. "I know once I get to the game it's going to be a little different. But that's something I'll adjust to. I've been playing football my whole life." Bell has been talking to Gase all summer about the plan for how he'll be used in practice and in preseason games. Gase announced last weekend that Bell will be held out of games until the regular season, a scenario with which the running back says he's "completely fine." "It's going to come," he said. "I don't think four plays of the preseason is going to help me for Week 1 in the game." That doesn't mean Bell isn't itching to get on the field. "I really hate watching Sam play," Bell said with a smile. "I just want to be in there with him because I know how special he is and I want to play with that. "Obviously, I know everybody's eager to watch me play. I'm eager to play." That's evident in the way Bell has prepared for the first two preseason games, dressing in full uniform despite knowing he won't see the field. "Yeah, he's out there in pregame with the pads on and dancing around and he's like, 'Let's go, guys! Come on! Get fired up!'" Darnold said with a big grin. "I'm like, 'Bro, you're not even playing. Once you start playing, you can start doing that stuff.' Nah, he's been great." Bell acknowledged that this year's season opener will be different from any he experienced during his previous stint with the Steelers. He knows all eyes will be on him — including those of his coaches and teammates. "I'm excited that when we get the opportunity and it's go-time for him, I can't wait to see what he does on a Sunday," Gase said. "Watching him in practice, that's fun enough. You can tell the guy is a special player and to see him on Sunday, that's going to be fun." NOTES: LG Kelechi Osemele (pectoral), RG Brian Winters (shoulder) and WR Jeff Smith (hamstring) remain sidelined. ... RT Brandon Shell (knee) returned to team drills after missing a few days. ... LB Blake Cashman (shoulder/leg) was limited after sitting out practice since getting hurt in the preseason opener......»»

ONE Championship: Coach Mark Sangiao Wary Of Burnout as Danny Kingad Starts Preparing For ‘DJ’

  Danny "The King" Kingad will employ a precautious yet stringent approach as he prepares for Demetrious "Mighty Mouse" Johnson in the ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Championship Final.   The top flyweights in the world are set to collide in ONE Championship’s historic 100th event at ONE: CENTURY on 13 October at the Ryogoku Kokugikan in Tokyo, Japan.   Both athletes overcame stiff challenges in the semifinals at ONE: DAWN OF HEROES this past 2 August at the Mall Of Asia Arena in Manila, Philippines.   Kingad upended Reece “Lightning” McLaren and Johnson defeated Tatsumitsu “The Sweeper” Wada.   With just roughly two months to spare until the final match, that gives little time for both athletes to rest.   For Team Lakay head coach Mark Sangiao, it is all about balancing rest and preparation.   “We’ll be giving a week of light training before we go back to the rigid training sessions,” Sangiao shared.   “We haven’t really finished sitting down intently and discussing our lapses in the previous match.”   One factor that Sangiao is looking at is the possibility of Kingad burning out from going hard each and every training session.   Sangiao says he has everything covered if he sees signs that “The King” is burnout during training.   “You’ll see that during training sessions, that sometimes he’ll get burnt out, we have adjustments for that,” Sangiao shared.   “We have a lot of adjustments for everything. We have to have everything covered because we know that Johnson is a very difficult opponent. He has proven it worldwide.”   Fans and experts alike point out that Kingad is in a win-win situation in his bout against an athlete touted by many as the pound-for-pound greatest mixed martial artist in history.   After all, at 23 years old, Kingad will be getting something out of it - regardless of the result.   Sangiao agrees with that notion, but do not expect them to be happy just to be there.   “It’s a win-win situation for us, even more so if we win,” Sangiao said with a laugh.   “We cannot be content with where we are right now. We have to win. If Danny wins here, it will not only be for him but for the Philippines as well, knowing Demetrious and the legacy that he has worldwide.”   Whatever happens, Sangiao knows that Kingad would not be backing down from the 12-time flyweight World Champion.   “He’s up for a grind. He’s the pound-for-pound king worldwide, but let’s look at Danny - maybe he’s really ‘The King.’”   Catch ONE Championship’s event, ONE: IMMORTAL TRIUMPH, on 6 September in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. It will be the organization’s first ever all-Super Series event.    Watch the action live on the ONE Super App.   More From ONE Championship   Danny Kingad Admits ‘Bittersweet’ Feeling But Ready For Demetrious Johnson Danny Kingad Defeats Reece McLaren To Reach ONE Flyweight World Grand Prix Final Demetrious Johnson Ready For the King After Wada Win  .....»»

Lampard s Chelsea homecoming ruined as Leicester earns draw

By Steve Douglas, Associated Press Frank Lampard climbed the steps in the tunnel and emerged to rapturous applause from Chelsea fans, a flame display and a giant banner at one end of Stamford Bridge that read "Welcome Home Super Frank." "The stuff of dreams," Lampard described his homecoming on Sunday. He couldn't mark it with a victory, though. Lampard's winless run as manager of the club where he is the record scorer and one of its greatest players extended to three games after Leicester fought back to earn a 1-1 draw in the Premier League. "It's very early for us," Lampard said after his first home match in charge of Chelsea. "We have to be patient as we are working toward something." After a 4-0 loss at Manchester United on the opening weekend of the Premier League and then a penalty-shootout defeat to Liverpool on Wednesday, Chelsea couldn't hold on to the lead given by youngster Mason Mount's seventh-minute goal. Holding midfielder Wilfred Ndidi was at fault for that goal after being dispossessed by Mount on the edge of Leicester's area, but he made amends by scoring the equalizer. James Maddison swung over the corner and Ndidi rose higher than marker Cesar Azpilicueta to plant a firm header into the corner. Chelsea struggled in the second half, perhaps through fatigue having been taken to extra time by Liverpool in the Super Cup, which finished after midnight local time in Turkey. Leicester wasted a clear chance to take all three points when Maddison weaved past Chelsea's static defense in the 73rd minute only to blaze over from point-blank range. "It's a results business," Lampard said. "It's strange because the performance against Manchester United overall made me happier than today, even though it was a 4-0 result. We need both. "There were frustrations. If there were frustrations in the crowd, there were frustrations in the team and on the bench." While Chelsea has started the season disappointingly under Lampard, Leicester — highly fancied to break into the top six under Brendan Rodgers — is also without a win after opening with a 0-0 home draw against Wolverhampton Wanderers. "The top six is always going to be difficult," Rodgers said, "but we have got to be aggressive and dominate, whatever arena you are playing in, home or away, and you saw that from my team today." BLADES LOOKING SHARP Sheffield United is comfortably settling back into the Premier League after its return to the top flight after a 12-year absence. A 1-0 win over Crystal Palace on Sunday followed up a 1-1 draw at Bournemouth on the opening weekend. Only Liverpool and Arsenal have more than Sheffield United's four points from two games. John Lundstram was the team's matchwinner, the midfielder finishing from close range in the 47th minute after Palace goalkeeper Vicente Guaita could only tip away a driven cross into the box. Palace has yet to score a goal this season, having started with a 0-0 home draw against Everton......»»

Madison Keys, Daniil Medvedev get 1st titles in Cincy

By Joe Kay, Associated Press MASON, Ohio (AP) — Two unexpected champions embraced their first Rookwood championship trophies, concluding a week that brought more questions than clarity to the upcoming U.S. Open. Who's going to be healthy on the women's side? Will stumbles in the men's bracket at the Western & Southern Open carry over to New York? And are Madison Keys and Daniil Medvedev capable of carrying their newfound momentum into a Grand Slam event? After winning the biggest tournament title of their careers, they were already getting asked about how it might transfer to the bigger stage. Keys rallied late in both sets and beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 7-6 (5) Sunday for her second title of the season and easily the biggest of her career. After flameouts in her last three tournaments and a tough draw for the week, she couldn't imagine the outcome. Back on the court to receive the trophy , she told the crowd: "If you told me this is where I would be a week ago, I would have laughed in your face!" Yet there she was, back in the Top 10 on a surprising upswing heading to New York. She'll move up to the No. 10 ranking after a gritty showing that was typical of her week. She broke Kuznetsova to pull even in both sets at 5-5 and then pulled them out with a steady serve. Keys hadn't made it past the second round in her last three tournaments, including Wimbledon. Now she's got a good feeling with her favorite Grand Slam event at hand. "It's definitely a great building block," Keys said. "I want to do well in New York and have a good end to the season." At 34, Kuznetsova was the oldest finalist in the Western & Southern Open's history. She beat three top-10 players in a tournament — Sloane Stephens, Karolina Pliskova and Ashleigh Barty — for the first time in her 19-year career. The 153rd-ranked player got a late start on the season as she completed a seven-month recovery from a knee injury. In her ninth tournament of the season, she got her game together and got her best result in two years. "Honestly, I didn't expect to be so good at this tournament," she said. After what happened in Cincinnati during the week, nobody knows what to expect in the women's bracket in New York. Serena Williams dropped out of Cincinnati because of back spasms that also forced her to withdraw from the final in Toronto. Naomi Osaka, the defending U.S. Open champion, withdrew from her semifinal match on Friday with discomfort in her left knee that left her worried about her condition heading to New York. There's some intrigue on the men's side, too. The bracket in Cincinnati was billed as a reunion of the Big Four — Novak Djokovic, Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Andy Murray back together for the first time since January. None of them made it to the final. Nadal won the Rogers Cup last Sunday and withdrew from the Western & Southern, citing fatigue. Murray played singles for the first time since hip surgery in January and lost his opening match. Seven-time champion Federer was knocked out in the quarterfinals, and Djokovic lost to Medvedev in the semifinals with the crowd cheering him on. The Russian thanked the crowd for its support after beat David Goffin 7-6 (3), 6-4 for his first Masters 1000 title Sunday. It was his third straight final, but the first time he'd won. Medvedev lost to Nadal on Montreal a week earlier, then went on to reach his sixth final of this season, most on the ATP tour. He's won twice. "To finally lift the trophy this week is an amazing feeling," Medvedev said. At age 23, he became the youngest Cincinnati champion since Murray at age 21 in 2008. "Congratulations," Goffin told him, "and I think you're ready for New York.".....»»

VAR denies Man City again in latest wild match with Spurs

By Steve Douglas, Associated Press Four months later, Manchester City was denied another crucial late goal against Tottenham by an intervention from the video assistant referee. Gabriel Jesus thought he scored the winner in the second minute of injury time in a wild English Premier League match at Etihad Stadium on Saturday when he curled home a finish after the ball landed at his feet following a corner. The Brazil striker waved and danced in front of City's jubilant fans, unaware the on-field referee had been told the goal was under review. VAR — new to the league this season — ruled the ball reached Jesus off the arm of Aymeric Laporte as the City defender stretched to head it. Newly implemented rules say a foul should be awarded if a goal is scored from an accidental handball. The goal was disallowed, much to the anger of Jesus and City's frustrated fans, and the match finished 2-2. The final whistle was greeted with loud boos inside the stadium as the English champions dropped points in the second match of their title defense. Back in April, almost the exact same thing happened to City when Spurs visited for a Champions League match. On that occasion, Raheem Sterling had a goal disallowed for offside by VAR in the third minute of injury time, denying City a place in the semifinals. City manager Pep Guardiola didn't drop to his knees and look as crestfallen like he did in April. Instead he engaged in conversation with Tottenham counterpart Mauricio Pochettino in the technical area as confusion reigned around him. "I thought we left that situation against Tottenham in the Champions League last season. But it is the same," Guardiola said. "The referee and VAR disallow it. It's the second time, it's tough. It's honestly tough." Guardiola will wonder how his team didn't win. Twice taking the lead in the first half, through Sterling and then Sergio Aguero, City was twice pegged back by Tottenham, first by Erik Lamela and then by Lucas Moura 14 seconds after he entered the field as a substitute. The diminutive Brazil winger ran straight toward the penalty area to line up for his team's corner and rose highest — somewhat improbably — to send a glancing header looping into the net in the 56th. Aguero was substituted soon after that goal and exchanged some strong words on the sideline with Guardiola as he sat down. The pair was seen embracing near the end of the match, however, suggesting they patched up their differences. The result leaves City two points behind Liverpool, the team expected again to be its biggest rival for the title. Liverpool beat Southampton 2-1 earlier. ADRIAN'S CRAZY WEEK In the space of nine days, Spanish goalkeeper Adrian has made his Liverpool debut as an injury substitute, saved the decisive penalty to win the club the UEFA Super Cup, got injured by a pitch-invading fan, and made an embarrassing error in a Premier League game. To say it has been a roller-coaster start to life at Anfield would be an understatement. Adrian, an offseason signing filling in for the injured Alisson Becker, was a doubt for Liverpool's match at Southampton after a fan slid into the goalkeeper's ankle while the team celebrated his crucial penalty stop in a shootout win over Chelsea in the UEFA Super Cup on Wednesday. He was declared fit on the morning of the match and made some good saves before Sadio Mane and Roberto Firmino put Liverpool 2-0 up at St Mary's. Adrian ensured there was a nervy finish when he kicked a clearance straight at Southampton striker Danny Ings and saw the ball rebound into the net in the 83rd. Liverpool hung on, though, for a second straight win after beating Norwich. PUKKI PEAKING Teemu Pukki scored a division-high 29 goals to proper Norwich to the second-tier League Championship title last season. He cannot stop scoring in the Premier League, either. After his consolation goal at Anfield on the opening weekend, the Finland striker added another three in dismantling sorry Newcastle as top-flight soccer returned to Carrow Road. "The guys are creating chances — I could have scored more," Pukki said. Newcastle has lost both of its opening games under new manager Steve Bruce. AUBAMEYANG AGAIN Another striker to have started the season strongly is Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, who has grabbed winning goals in each of Arsenal's first two games. A week after scoring the only goal at Newcastle, Aubameyang led Arsenal to a 2-1 win over Burnley with a shot inside the near post from the edge of the area. He was tied as the top scorer last season with Liverpool attackers Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane. The standout player for Arsenal, though, was Dani Ceballos, who is on a season-long loan from Real Madrid. He set up both goals — the first was scored by Alexandre Lacazette — and showed the touch and vision Arsenal has been missing since the departure of another Spanish playmaker, Santi Cazorla. WINS FOR EVERTON, BOURNEMOUTH Everton and Bournemouth got their first wins after opening the season with draws. Brazilian winger Bernard scored in the first half to secure a 1-0 victory for Everton against Watford, while Bournemouth built on a second-minute penalty from Josh King and beat Aston Villa 2-1. Jack Grealish, the Villa captain, has lost a record 20 straight Premier League games, stretching back to when the team was last in the top flight in 2015-16. Brighton and West Ham drew 1-1 in the other match......»»

Giants may not have to worry about Eli getting hurt anymore

By Tom Canavan, Associated Press EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — For the first time in about a decade, the New York Giants seemingly don't have to worry about Eli Manning getting hurt. In just two preseason games, first-round draft pick and heir apparent Daniel Jones has shown he can play in the NFL. Take a look at the statistics. Jones is 16 of 19 for 228 yards and two touchdowns. He's completed 84.2% of his passes with a 151.8 quarterback rating. No one ever would have felt the same about former backups Geno Smith, Alex Tanney, Davis Webb, Josh Johnson, Ryan Nassib or Kyle Lauletta in recent years. Jones has changed that feeling by his play. When he takes over remains to be seen. Giants co-owner John Mara said recently he would love to see Manning remain the starter all season and for Jones not to play. Coach Pat Shurmur seconded that approach after New York won its second straight game. So far, there is no need to make the move. Manning has looked good playing just two series. He had a three-and-out against the Jets and hit all four of his passes in engineering a first-drive touchdown against the Bears. He is 5 of 5 for 42 yards and a TD. His quarterback rating is 143.8. Shurmur has said Jones is getting ready to play. On Saturday, in discussing the Giants' 32-13 win over Chicago on Friday night, the coach refused to say if Jones was ready. "I think when his time comes, he's going to be ready," Shurmur said. "I still think we've got training camp left to push through, we've got preseason games left to push through. I would say right now, we're three weeks from any of us being ready, so that's sort of where we're at. We've got work to do, and so that's how I approach that. That would be my answer to that question, I guess." Jones wasn't perfect against the Bears. He lost two fumbles. The first came when he and center Jon Halapio failed to get together on a snap in the red zone. The second came after he was sacked, the result on not keeping two hands on the ball. "You don't want to make any mistakes, but I think it was going to happen and you realize that," Jones said after the game. "There are going to be some mistakes and just figuring that out sometimes. I didn't try to make any mistakes." After watching video of the game, Shurmur felt the Giants were a little loose with the ball overall. TJ Jones, who caught a touchdown pass from Daniel Jones on Friday, muffed a punt. Linebacker Nate Stupar dropped an interception, and the Giants' receivers dropped three other passers. Running back Rod Smith also had a fumble. "Those are all correctable, every one of those, and those are the things that we will continue to focus on as we go through camp," Shurmur said. If there is a concern for Shurmur, it has to be the defense. The first unit gave up a touchdown to Sam Darnold and the Jets on the opening drive in the first game, and backup Chase Daniel led Chicago's second offensive unit to a field goal on the opening series. The Bears did not play their starters. Shurmur downplayed the fast starts, noting the defense limited the Bears to one touchdown and two field goals and had eight 3-out-series. "There were many things that were good," Shurmur said. "Certainly, you don't want anybody to score on the first drive, but I think there was an improvement this game, we forced them to kick a field goal, so I don't see a trend there. Like everything, though, we're fighting to get better in all areas throughout the game." At least Jones seems to be ready......»»
