The Hornets – who sat bottom of the table with only one win in 15 games when Nigel Pearson was appointed to replace Quique Sanchez Flores in December – had initially moved six points clear of the bottom three following successive home victories over Norwich and Newcastle earlier this month.However, things quickly unravelled again for Watford, who made the surprising decision to dismiss Pearson following a costly 3-1 loss at West Ham and disagreement with owner Gino Pozzo.And caretaker manager Mullins could only watch on as his side suffered the worst possible start, conceding a penalty inside 34 seconds as Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang struck the first blow of the afternoon.Things went from bad to worse for the visitors as Aubameyang tuned provider as Kieran Tierney scored his first goal for the Gunners on 33 minutes, before the Arsenal captain acrobatically scored his second and Arsenal’s third to put the hosts 3-0 up.Troy Deeney did provide a glimmer of hope after the Watford skipper converted a penalty on 43 minutes – the fifth that David Luiz has conceded this season – as they went in 3-1 down at the break. Danny Welbeck cut Arsenal’s lead to 3-2 with 66 minutes on the clock, as Arsenal looked like they were about let a three-goal lead slip.Bournemouth were also relegated from the Premier League despite beating Everton.The Cherries went into the final day with a mountain to climb after languishing in the lower reaches of the Premier League for much of the season.They sat three points from safety and were reliant on other results going their way to keep their place at the top table.Tags: AFC BouremouthPremier LeagueWatford FC
“Manchester United are not quite sure what they’re doing with him so out of respect for them, it’s not for me to talk about that,” Parish told Sky Sports News. “I’m sure that if he can, he’ll try to be a permanent fixture at Manchester United this season. “It’s up to the manager, the players we sign. It’s not up to me. I’m there to help him get the squad he wants. “There’s a sentimental value and I loved Wilf as a kid and he did sensational things for us. “I know the fans would like him back and that will play a part, but in the end the manager will decide what we do.” Parish hopes to complete the signing of two players before Saturday’s Barclays Premier League opener against Arsenal at the Emirates Stadium. “We’re looking at a Premier League midfielder. It’s someone we’re interested in and if we can get the deal right we’ll try to do it,” Parish said. “Hopefully the other player will be here in the next couple of days and that shouldn’t be the end of it, although it will be as much as we can do before the Arsenal game.” Parish revealed that the row over bonuses – the squad have demanded a bigger sum this season – has been brought to a successful resolution. Zaha was sold to Manchester United for £15million in January 2013 but has failed to shine and his Old Trafford future is shrouded in doubt. Parish insists the 21-year-old winger would be welcome back in south-east London, but stresses the decision is up to Palace boss Tony Pulis – and United. Crystal Palace co-chairman Steve Parish has hinted that the Eagles are ready to take Wilfried Zaha back to Selhurst Park. Press Association
Arsenal moved to the top of the Barclays Premier League following a hard-earned 2-1 win over Everton at the Emirates Stadium. This time it was Santi Cazorla with the pinpoint ball in, whipping a free-kick on the left through the six-yard box – where Koscielny got in on the blind-side to nod in a second goal. Everton were, however, quickly handed a way back into the match a minute before the break. Barkley broke down left and drilled an angled shot goalwards from 25 yards, which took a wicked deflection off the trailing leg of Gabriel and flew past Cech. The match remained very open in the second half as both defences were stretched on the break. Giroud was inches away from a second goal on 68 minutes when Ozil delivered another slide-rule pass and the French forward lofted the ball over Howard, but was denied by the crossbar. The visitors were soon close to an equaliser when Lukaku got up to head a cross from Barry onto the top of the crossbar. As the clock ran down, Everton continued to press and Deulofeu found himself in space on the right side of a crowded penalty area – but Cech was out quickly to make a superb block. In stoppage time, Ozil was unfortunate not to add a third for Arsenal when his low 18-yard effort struck the base of the post. Barry was shown a second yellow card for a trip on substitute Kieran Gibbs as Everton finished with 10 men. TWEET OF THE MATCH “That is a big, big win. We looked tired in the 2nd half after Tuesday, but deserved the 3 points. Giroud and Ozil fantastic.” – Prominent blogger @arseblog. https://twitter.com/arseblog/status/657986157746245633 PLAYER RATINGS Arsenal (Out of 10) Petr Cech – 7 Gabriel – 6 Laurent Koscielny – 7 Mesit Ozil – 8 Olivier Giroud – 8 Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain – 7 Alexis Sanchez – 6 Nacho Monreal – 6 Santi Cazorla – 7 Hector Bellerin – 6 Francis Coquelin – 6 Substitutes Kieran Gibbs – 5 Mathieu Flamini – 6 Evertom Tim Howard – 6 John Stones – 5 Phil Jagielka – 5 Romelu Lukaku – 4 Aaron Lennon – 5 James McCarthy – 4 Gareth Barry – 4 Gerard Deulofeu – 5 Ross Barkley – 6 Seamus Coleman – 6 Brendan Galloway – 6 Substitutes Kevin Mirallas – 5 Steven Naismith – 4 Ramiro Funes Mori – 5 STAR PLAYER Olivier Giroud: Had a brilliant game for the Gunners. He was involved in every attack and kept Everton’s defence busy. John Stones and Phil Jagielka failed to keep up with him on a number of occasions and his goal came after he lost both members of the Everton team. MOMENT OF THE MATCH Arsenal’s first goal: Came after a superb build-up. Momentum had been building for the home side and as Mesut Ozil sprinted down the right wing, Olivier Giroud was perfectly positioned in the middle of the box. The striker managed to lose both his Everton markers to skim the ball into the back of the net. Every Arsenal attack involved their link up play and the goal summed up the pair’s work ethic throughout the whole game VIEW FROM THE BENCH Everton’s back four struggled to keep up with the Arsenal attacks. Arsene Wenger had set up Mesut Ozil, Alexis Sanchez and Alex Oxlade Chamberlain to switch in midfield and it worked a treat, confusing the Everton midfield and leaving the defence open to attack. With Giroud in fine form, it meant the Gunners could get a number of shots on target early on. It was not long before these attacks paid off and they were soon two nil up. MOAN OF THE MATCH After 60 minutes Arsenal appeared to have shot after shot against Everton keeper, Tim Howard, but despite an impressive team build up they could not get the ball in the back of the net. WHO’S UP NEXT? Sheffield Wednesday v Arsenal (Capital One Cup, Tuesday October 27) Everton v Norwich (Capital One Cup, Tuesday October 27) Press Association Giroud, preffered to Theo Walcott in attack, saw an effort come back off the crossbar before Romelu Lukaku also sent a header onto the top of the woodwork. Goalkeeper Petr Cech made a superb late block to deny Gerard Deulofeu as the Gunners, who defeated Bayern Munich in their midweek Champions League tie, moved a point ahead of Manchester City, who play at rivals United on Sunday. Giroud – who scored off the bench against both Watford and Bayern – was the target for all of the Gunners’ early assaults. However, Ev erton, beaten 3-0 at Manchester United last weekend, remained resolute with plenty of attacking intentions themselves as the rain drizzled down on the slick Emirates Stadium pitch. On 28 minutes, a cutback from Aaron Lennon through the six-yard box was only palmed away by Cech – but Everton defender John Stones could only hack the loose ball wide as it spun up off his shin. After soaking up plenty of pressure in the rain, Arsenal swept into the lead on 36 minutes. Ozil found himself in some space on the right and delivered a superb floating cross over the Everton defence for Giroud to steal in behind and send a backward header past Howard. Before Everton could regroup, they were 2-0 down. Two goals inside as many minutes in the first half from Olivier Giroud and Laurent Koscielny looked to have set the Gunners up for a comfortable evening. A deflected effort from Ross Barkley pulled Everton back into the match just before half-time – but there was to be no equaliser for the visitors, who finished the game with 10 men as a result of Gareth Barry’s late dismissal following two yellow cards.

Former Syracuse University women’s soccer player Jenna Rickan has gained a fifth year of eligibility and will play basketball at SUNY Buffalo next year, she announced on Twitter on Monday night.Rickan, who tallied six goals and nine assists in her four-year Syracuse soccer career, is listed as a 5-foot-9 guard on the Buffalo website. She starred on the basketball court for Kenmore West High School in Buffalo, where she became the program’s career scoring leader and the first player to surpass 1,000 points. In her senior season, she was named to the All-Western New York basketball team by The Buffalo News.“When soccer ended it was bittersweet, ready for it to be over,” Rickan said. “But I missed being part of a team and I wanted to go to UB for grad school because I wanted to be home.”At SU, Rickan was a key in helping turn around the women’s soccer program. In her freshman season in 2009, the Orange went 5-11-3. In her senior season this year, the team finished 9-7-2 and lost to Notre Dame in the quarterfinals of the Big East tournament. Rickan, a forward, finished tied for 10th place on SU’s career assists list with nine.“The last month (while at Syracuse) I started to play basketball I would say a little bit more just for fun up at Archbold (Gymnasium)… I started to realize I love basketball and I wasn’t half bad even if I haven’t played in a couple of years.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWith encouragement from her family and former coaches at Kenmore West, Rickan sent the coaches at Buffalo an email. Rickan eventually sent the coaches video from her high school career. They offered her a May 14 tryout — two days after SU’s Sunday graduation. There, four coaches ran Rickan through ball-handling and shooting drills.The next day, she was offered a spot on the team.“Coach Felisha (Legette-Jack), she was able to give me the chance to give the desire to my heart,” Rickan said. “I feel like God has put my heart to be there to actually do it. So it’s a pretty cool opportunity.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on June 3, 2013 at 8:48 pm Contact Josh: email@example.com
Shane Carden hadn’t yet played a full game of junior varsity football, and he was already faced with a tough decision.Injured while fielding a punt, Carden had to choose between competing in the final six games with a cast on his wrist, or playing it safe and letting the bone heal.He didn’t need to think twice.“The first thing going through my mind is, ‘How long until I can get back out there,’” Carden said. “I just hate being off the field. I don’t know how to describe it. I just hate not being out there with my teammates.”Now the starting quarterback at East Carolina, Carden has experienced a prolific beginning to his season, leading the offense to 83 points and two blowout wins.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHe set an ECU record with 447 passing yards in the team’s 52-38 opening-week win over Old Dominion.Despite an overbearing father, being overlooked by coaches and more time than he wanted on the bench, Carden has become, statistically, one of the best quarterbacks in college football. His success stems from wanting to be the best athlete in a family full of them.“I was very competitive with my older brother,” Carden said. “He was two years older than me, and he was a very good athlete. I wanted to be as good as he was at that time, even though I was two years younger. Whether it was backyard basketball or whatever, it’d usually end up in a fight with him kicking my ass.”Along with his baseball-playing brothers, Carden lived in a household where playing sports was the norm. His father Jay had an eight-year professional baseball career playing in the farm systems of the New York Mets, Atlanta Braves and Montreal Expos. His mother, a volleyball player, was the first female athlete ever to earn a scholarship to California Polytechnic State, and his uncle was the starting quarterback at Southern California.Carden’s attitude toward athletics didn’t deviate. He grew up playing many sports, but stuck with baseball and football more seriously in high school.So when Carden told his father that he was officially quitting baseball to focus full time on football, his father wasn’t happy.“I bet he had more ability than both of my other two boys that both played college baseball,” Jay Carden said. “When he said he wanted to concentrate full time on football, I didn’t know why necessarily. I hated to see him not playing a sport he was really good at.”Worried that his son might spend afternoons during the spring season at home on his couch, Jay Carden devised a daily workout schedule to help make sure he kept in shape for football season, said Shane’s mother, Scoti Carden.Although Carden wasn’t playing baseball, his father said he encouraged his son because he saw a lot of potential in him.“He would get the team out there working out in middle school in the summer in 100 degrees,” Jay Carden said. “He did the same thing all throughout high school. He always got better. You see a lot of kids in sports, they will reach a plateau, and they won’t ever get any better. I never saw that plateau in Shane.”Throughout Carden’s career, there were several moments that it appeared his plateau had been reached. In his sophomore year of high school, he was called up to the varsity team, but only to play cornerback. He finally earned an opportunity behind center when the starting quarterback got hurt for the year.“He never played (cornerback) before, but he wanted to do whatever it took to get on the field,” said Steven Leisz, his football coach at Episcopal High School in Bellaire, Texas. “He’s a gamer. That’s who he is.”At East Carolina, Carden was faced with a similar situation. He redshirted his freshman season and only appeared as a wide receiver once the next year. He lost the starting quarterback job before the start of his sophomore year.But when his competitor faltered, Carden stepped in. He completed 273-of-413 passes en route to 3,116 yards and 23 touchdowns. He was named the school’s offensive player of the year.Carden said even with the accolades and recognition he has been receiving since his ascent at ECU, there is still more to prove.“When you’re kind of underrated, to get over that and show people that you missed out on me, it’s always a good feeling,” Carden said. “There will always be people that say it’s lucky, but we’ve got to continue to prove those people wrong. I’ve always had a chip on my shoulder.” Comments Published on September 12, 2013 at 1:00 am Contact Sam: firstname.lastname@example.org | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+
