Man City finds stride in 4-1 victory vs Burnley; Palace wins

LONDON (AP) — After the lights went out in the changing room, Manchester City finally found a way to shine on the pitch again. City bounced back from its disappointing draw at Newcastle by beating Burnley 4-1 in the Premier League on Tuesday, displaying the kind of fluent attacking play that has often eluded Pep Guardiola’s team lately. Gabriel Jesus scored twice for City, which arrived at Turf Moor to find that the lights weren’t working in the away dressing room. The club tweeted out a picture of a black screen to make light of the situation, and the team then made light work of Burnley as well. Jesus curled in the opener in the 24th minute and doubled the lead just after halftime. Rodri added the third with a thundering volley into the roof of the net from 20 yards out in the 68th before substitute Riyad Mahrez netted his 50th Premier League goal in the 87th. Burnley's Robbie Brady grabbed a late consolation goal for the host. City had won just one of their last five games in all competitions but moved into second place above Leicester ahead of its game against Watford on Wednesday. It also cut Liverpool’s lead to eight points ahead of the Reds’ game against rival Everton in the Merseyside Derby on Wednesday. And Rodri insisted the defending champion hasn’t given up hope of catching Liverpool. "Until the maths say another thing we have all the chance of winning the Premier League,” Rodri said. "We don't see the best version of Manchester City until now." TEN-MAN PALACE WINS In Tuesday’s other game, substitute Jeffrey Schlupp scored in the 76th minute as 10-man Crystal Palace beat Bournemouth 1-0 to provisionally move up to fifth. Roy Hodgson's side played a man down for 71 minutes after Mamadou Sakho was sent off for a rash tackle, but Palace’s makeshift back four produced a solid display to see out a second straight win. Bournemouth, meanwhile, has now lost four games in a row. Sakho was making just his second league start of the season and recklessly caught Adam Smith high on the knee when sliding in for a tackle in the 19th minute, causing referee Anthony Taylor to show a straight red card. Palace then had another setback when Patrick Van Aanholt sustained a hamstring injury and had to be replaced by Schlupp. That meant Palace had center-back Martin Kelly playing on the right of the back four, midfielder Cheikhou Kouyate at the heart of defense and Schlupp — usually a winger — filling in at left-back. However, Bournemouth struggled to create chances and the hosts were still a threat on counterattacks, with Wilfried Zaha having a penalty appeal waved away in the 70th minute after colliding with Chris Mepham. Schlupp then scored the winner after he raced past Jefferson Lerma and Dominic Solanke before dribbling into the area and rifling an effort past Aaron Ramsdale from 12 yards out. Tuesday’s games were the first Premier League matches to be streamed live by Amazon in Britain, after the online giant bought the rights for two full rounds per season for the next three years......»»

SEA Games: Afril hopes gold medal shines light in struggles of Pinay ballers

MANILA — With a breakthrough gold medal for Philippine women’s basketball in 3x3 play for the 2019 Southeast Asian Games, national team star Afril Bernardino hopes she and her team have sent a clear message to everyone in this hoops-crazed country. Pinay players can ball too and so, they also need attention and support. “Sana napansin na,” Bernardino said after Gilas women beat Thailand Monday here to win gold in the SEA Games. “Yun din po yung point namin, if we win this game, sana magkaroon na nag attention sa women’s,” she added. Afril Bernardino hopes their gold medal ???? in 3x3 basketball of the Southeast Asian Games shines a light on women’s basketball in the Philippines. “Sana napansin na. Yun din po yung point namin, if we win this game, sana magkaroon na ng attention sa women’s.”#SEAGames2019 — Paul Kennedy Lintag (@paullintag8) December 2, 2019 Basketball opportunities for men come aplenty in the Philippines, that's just a fact. Women are not afforded the same luxury as players that can’t make the national team pretty much have nowehere to go after graduating college. Despite an influx of talent, there’s no place for Pinay players to play professionally in their own country. Bernardino hopes their gold medal can shine a light on their struggles as players. “Syempre as a women’s basketball player, gusto rin namin na mapansin yung women’s para sa mga kababaihang gusto maglaro, meron din sila. After ng college kasi, wala kaming mapuntahan dito lang sa Gilas Pilipinas women,” she said. “Yun po hinihiling namin, sana mapansin yung women’s basketball. Suporta lang po sa women’s,” Bernardino added.   — Follow this writer on Twitter, @paullintag8.....»»

SEA Games: Espejo, Retamar shine in PHI’s opening day win

Marck Espejo provided the spark on offense while debuting setter Joshua Retamar made his presence felt both on orchestrating attacks and defense at the net as the Philippines hammered Cambodia, 29-27, 25-17, 25-17, in the 30th Southeast Asian Games men’s volleyball Monday at the PhilSports Arena. The Nationals had some anxious moments in the extended first set but when Espejo got his groove going combined with his teammates’ solid net defense anchored by Retamar, the Filipinos went on a tear to join the other Pool B elimination round first day winner Indonesia. Down, 26-27, in the first set, Retamar saved a set point with a heady drop ball off a broken play to force a deuce. A Cambodian miscue gave the Philippines the set point advantage before Retamar ended the frame with a kill block. Espejo continued his hot attacking in the second frame but it was the Nationals defensive gems at the net – a total of eight – that spelled the difference. With momentum on their side, the home team easily brushed off the Cambodians’ early fight as the Nationals pulled away midway in the third to break a slim, 17-16, lead with a 6-0 blast for a seven point lead. Espejo hammered the match point before Cambodia yielded the match with an attack error.           The Nationals will take on Vietnam on Wednesday at 6:00 p.m.   --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»

SEA Games: PHI sepak takraw bets hope gold medals shine light on sport

SUBIC - The Philippines made history in sepak takraw in the 2019 Southeast Asian Games. With their double gold in the women's and men's hoops last Sunday, the Filipinos won an event in the sport for the first time in the regional meet. And for the country's sport officials, that should just be the start. "Out of six (events), sana makakuha tayo ng tatlo. You have to understand that powerhouse Thailand is here, but makatatlo lang tayo, boundary na," Pilipinas Sepak Takraw president Karen Tanchanco-Caballero said. She then continued, "This is the realistic forecast. Sino ba ayaw ng six (golds), but we know our limitations." Still up for grabs in the sport are six gold medals in doubles and regu in the coming days. Whether or not the Philippines gets its goal, though, it already has two golds to show for its trouble - and that is already a much-welcome development. With that, Tanchanco-Caballero said that they are only hoping that this encourages the country's youth to try out sepak takraw. As she put it, "I told (the athletes) that this would make or break the sport in terms of pagkilala. This is very popular in Visayas and Mindanao, but Metro Manila is yet to discover how we are built for the sport." She then continued, "We want to inspire the youth na meron pang ibang sport na magagaling tayo. This is as Filipino as it can get." After all, the Philippine governing body is already going all-out in supporting the growth of the sport. "Our athletes really worked hard. They spent time away from their families and nag-commit talaga sila," its president said while also mentioning that the national team had a three-month camp in Thailand as well as month-long training in South Korea before the regional meet. And of course, that only proved to be a big boost to the Filipinos' gold medal bid. "Yung support ng government, malaking tulong. Pinadala kami sa abroad kaya malaking tulong yun sa preparation," coach Romulo Ruedas said. He then continued, "Pagdating ng panahon, yung Thailand, baka mabi-beat natin." --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
