A THIRD consecutive Sheffield Shield title for Victoria appears all but certain after the Bushrangers ground South Australia into the Alice Springs dust on the fourth day of the final.Needing only to draw to lift the Shield, Victoria batted without urgency throughout the day; they started in the morning on 2 for 38 and added 216 over the course of the day, for the loss of a further four wickets.That meant that by stumps Victoria’s lead had swelled to 454 runs, and even the most diehard South Australia supporter would agree that to overhaul a target of at least that magnitude on the final day will be essentially impossible.At the close of play Victoria were on 6 for 254, with Daniel Christian unbeaten on 53 from 178 deliveries and Seb Gotch on 29 from 115.Scores: Victoria 487 and 6 for 254 (Finch 83, Christian 53*) lead South Australia 287 by 454 runs.

Except one. And now Hamilton is quickly approaching the legacy of the great Michael Schumacher. LIVE TV 10 months ago MMA: Tito Ortiz is confident about defeating Alberto El Patron SUBSCRIBE TO US AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — One by one, Lewis Hamilton has passed the great drivers of Formula One.Except one.And now Hamilton is quickly approaching the legacy of the great Michael Schumacher. His chances of catching him, once thought to be impossible, now look very, very good.Hamilton won his sixth career F1 championship Sunday with a second-place finish at the U.S. Grand Prix, leaving him one shy of the seven won by Schumacher in the German’s run of dominance between 1994 and 2004.Hamilton’s sixth title — his fifth since 2014 — moved the British driver past Argentina’s Juan Manuel Fangio, the “Godfather” of Formula One, who won five titles in the 1950s. Hamilton now stands alone behind Schumacher.“It’s an honor to be up here with these greats,” Hamilton said.Hamilton may be in a hurry to catch him.Although Hamilton has said he’ll most likely stay with Mercedes after his current contract expires in 2020, he’s 34 years old and one of the oldest drivers on the grid. Formula One will usher in some rules changes in 2021 that it hopes will bring big racing changes with technical tweaks to cars and a budget cap to constrain big teams like Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.And while Mercedes has won six consecutive constructor’s championships behind Hamilton, Ferrari and Red Bull have made enough strides that many see a wide open championship on the table next year.Many thought the same for 2019 until Hamilton and Mercedes lapped the field again. Hamilton has 10 wins this season, a figure that put him so far ahead of teammate Valtteri Bottas he only needed to finish eighth or better in Texas to secure the title.Hamilton has arguably made easy work of the F1 grid the last three years. In 2017 and 2018 he clinched titles in Mexico City in races he didn’t even finish on the podium.He won the title on Sunday despite falling short of a win that would have put an exclamation point on the championship. Hamilton could have settled into an easy drive, but instead chased after a victory when he bolted from fifth to third on the opening lap. He later grabbed the lead and held it until Bottas passed him in the final laps.“You can see how motivated Lewis still is, he wants to win every race and get the best result possible,” Mercedes Team Principal Toto Wolff said.Hamilton won his first championship at age 23 with McLaren in 2008, winning by a single point with a pass on the last corner of the last lap in the last race in Brazil. He didn’t win another until hooking up with Mercedes.Mercedes’ early dominance in the hybrid engine era caused some to question whether it was the car or driver winning the titles.But Hamilton has been the pilot guiding those silver missiles around the racetracks and his driving has silenced much of that. He fought off challenges from former teammate Nico Rosberg in 2014 and 2015, then battled Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel in 2017 and 2018.Serious talk of catching Schumacher began in 2017 when Hamilton matched Vettel’s four titles. After the race Sunday, Vettel came to the post-race cool down room to give Hamilton a handshake and a hug.Hamilton called 2019 one of the toughest championships yet. He’s started from pole position just four times and won from the front spot just twice. He also noted the death in May of friend and former F1 champion Niki Lauda, who had served as non-executive chairman of the Mercedes team and was a race fixture in the team garage.“I miss him so much. Today, he’d have taken his cap off. I wouldn’t have been able to do this without Niki,” Hamilton said.Now the chase for Schumacher is truly on. Hamilton just wants to slow it down for a few days or months.“Reaching Michael was never a target for me,” Hamilton said. “I definitely thought that getting anywhere near Michael was just so far-fetched. I remember having my one (championship) for a long period of time. And then getting the second and it was so far away. Now it seems so close and yet is so far away …“And I don’t want to build up the idea of trying to get to Michael’s seven, because at the moment, I’ve got to enjoy right now,” Hamilton said.___Follow Jim Vertuno at https://twitter.com/jimvertuno___More AP Formula One news: https://apnews.com/FormulaOne__More AP auto racing: https://apnews.com/apf-AutoRacing and https://twitter.com/AP_Sports 10 months ago European airline giant buys Spanish carrier Air Europa WATCH US LIVE Written By 10 months ago Lewis Hamilton considers prospect of winning 6th F1 title ‘unreal’! 10 months ago UK lawmakers electing new speaker to replace John Bercow

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. – Notre Dame coach Brian Kelly was hoping to strike a deal with Urban Meyer about where Ohio State junior defensive end Joey Bosa would line up Friday when the two teams square off in the Fiesta Bowl. The Buckeyes are missing both their starters at defensive tackle, which has given birth to the possibility of Bosa spending more snaps at the interior spots, rather than his usual place at the end. “If (Bosa) comes inside, that would be awesome,” Kelly said. “If we could make an agreement before the game that he was going to play the 3-technique then we would be very happy.”Kelly said he asked Meyer about inking such an agreement, and he got the kind of response many would predict.“He was noncommittal,” Kelly said, laughing, of Meyer’s response to his proposition. But about 45 minutes later, while addressing the media to kick off OSU’s media day, Meyer offered a more concrete answer to Kelly’s inquiry.Meyer was rattling off some of the names of some relatively unknown players expected to fill in for injured senior Tommy Schutt and suspended senior Adolphus Washington, such as sophomore Michael Hill and redshirt sophomore Tracy Sprinkle, before mentioning a more well-known guy.“Then, obviously, Joey Bosa will be playing some on the inside,” Meyer said. Based off that, Kelly, it appears, will be getting his wish. Exactly how much time Bosa spends there is unclear, but regardless, whenever the two-time All-American slides inside, Kelly will be happy.Bosa, though, doesn’t understand exactly why the coach feels that way. “I don’t know,” Bosa said, chuckling. “I have no idea because I think 3-technique is easier, honestly, to be disruptive.” The occasional migration to playing defensive tackle is something Bosa has done before this season, but mainly on third-down passing situations. But with Washington and Schutt sidelined, he will likely be there in scenarios outside of the previously mentioned one. “It’s nothing completely new,” Bosa said. There are similarities between his familiar role as a 4- and 5-technique end, Bosa explained, but the main differences are in the run fits and the size of pass-rush lanes. Bosa said he likes being on the inside because he can, usually, rush the passer on both sides of his blocker, rather than being on the outside where he typically tries to beat the tackle on the edge.As for why Kelly might want him on the inside, Bosa later suggested he thinks the coach might find it easier to double team him that way. That is nothing new to the Fort Lauderdale, Florida, native, though, as he has faced a barrage of blocking combinations this year attempting to slow him down. “Something that’s not going to go away,” Bosa said. Regardless of which technique Bosa plays, he said he knows it will be a challenge against the Notre Dame offensive line, as he called it “one of the best, if not the best, we’ve played this year.”That unit is led by senior left tackle Ronnie Stanley, who many consider to be a sure-fire first-round pick in the upcoming NFL draft. Bosa said the opportunity to go up against fellow elite talent is something he values highly, and Stanley fits that bill. The 6-foot-5, 315-pound Stanley echoed Bosa’s view. “I mean, if you want to be the best you’ve got to go up against the best,” Stanley said. “We’re both really good at our positions. I’m sure we’re both really excited to go up against each other. “That’s what competitors want to do.” Guard Quenton Nelson said the Fighting Irish aren’t going to change what they have been doing all season just because they’re playing against Bosa. The redshirt freshman labeled him an “incredible player,” but Nelson said Notre Dame will stick with its base concepts to try and impede Bosa. Those concepts include frequent double-teams of opposing defensive ends, which the team used against Texas and Virginia, Nelson said. But, Nelson added, the Fighting Irish trust the ability of their own players to match up one-on-one with the opposition. That means Stanley and Bosa, two first-round talents, might go mano-a-mano during the Fiesta Bowl. “I’m sure that’s going to happen,” Stanley said, cracking a smile.Junior right tackle Mike McGlinchey said no matter what Bosa is doing and where he’s doing it, the talent around No. 97 poses a difficult task for the offensive line, even with Washington and Schutt out of the lineup. “They’re all good players, I mean Ohio State is stacked,” McGlinchey said. “There is not much letdown.” Which is why Bosa said he doesn’t feel too much added pressure from losing two starters. All season long, he said, Sprinkle and Hill, as well as redshirt senior Joel Hale and sophomore Donovan Munger, have had the reps in practice to prepare them for this moment. “We all trust them,” Bosa said, “to go in there and do their job.” As for Bosa, who is potentially playing his final game in scarlet and gray, he will likely keep doing the job he’s been doing so well since arriving in Columbus. Kelly might be so optimistic about Bosa playing inside because he doesn’t have to block him. But McGlinchey, who does have to block him, said he knows Bosa will be effective wherever he plays. “No matter where he plays we’re going to be accounting for him,” McGlinchey said. Although Kelly’s wish might come true, Bosa said he thinks Kelly might be selling his ability on the inside short. “Yeah,” Bosa said, squeaking out a smile, “a little bit.” OSU players and coach Urban Meyer addressed the media about the upcoming BattleFrog Fiesta Bowl on Dec. 30th in Phoenix, Arizona.

Ohio State quarterbacks were protected from contact during Saturday’s Spring Game, but they still saw their fair share of pressure. Rising sophomore Braxton Miller and rising redshirt junior Kenny Guiton saw 11 plays blown dead for “sacks,” though the players weren’t actually tackled during the Scarlet team’s 20-14 victory against the Gray team. Despite the sacks allowed by the Scarlet and Gray teams’ offensive linemen, OSU remains confident in that position group. Redshirt junior Jack Mewhort saw limited action for the Scarlet team during the game, but saw his side concede seven sacks by the end of the game. Mewhort credited some of the Scarlet offensive line’s dysfunction to the player draft for the Spring Game, which separated players who were used to playing next to one another. “I thought guys battled really well. I don’t know if we’re necessarily getting beat up,” Mewhort said after the game. “You know, we weren’t the cohesive unit that we are. Guys were playing next to different guys than usual. I was proud of the way the guys went out and battled. I think guys competed.” Throughout spring ball, senior defensive lineman John Simon said he was impressed with how the group of linemen has come together. Simon also said he expects the offensive linemen to be an area of strength for the Buckeyes by the fall. “As an (offensive) line, you can’t really pick one guy,” Simon said. “It’s more, O-line has to play cohesive, and I think they do that. They really learned each other and they’re really comfortable with each other and, you know, a lot of guys that are just very sound at blocking in general. “I think our O-line is going to be tremendous and a strong point of our team this year.” First-year OSU coach Urban Meyer said he has seen the unit progress since he took over the program. “I had three or four miss my first team meeting,” Meyer said. “Unfortunately, we had a couple miss my second team meeting.” With spring ball having come and gone, Meyer said the unit begun positive trends in key areas. “Their bodies are changing a little bit,” Meyer said, “and their attitudes are changing.” OSU opens its 2012 season Sept. 1 against Miami (Ohio) at Ohio Stadium.
A slow start might have been disastrous for the Ohio State women’s soccer team. But senior forward Tiffany Cameron said the team’s early morning wake-up calls helped the Buckeyes recover from losses in each of their first two games. “We started off the season pretty slow, and then we got punished for that and we had to wake up at 6 a.m. for practice, it was crazy,” Cameron said. “Coach wanted to show us the will to win and what it takes to win and we just snapped out of it.” OSU has won the last seven of eight games and coach Lori Walker is pleased with the team’s growth and thinks they are improving a little more every day. “Our goal is to get a little bit better every single day and so I would say we have made a lot of progress,” Walker said. “The challenges we are presented with game to game are different because the opponents present different challenges, and we’ve finally gotten to a place where we are reading problems as they are thrown to us on the field and doing a much better job of solving them.” Similarly, junior midfielder Danica Wu said she thinks they are doing a great job connecting as a team. “We are getting better every game and we are connecting much better,” Wu said. “We give it our all and learn from our games and hopefully we keep doing that.” Cameron said the team’s biggest strength has been its will to win. “We have came out to every game ready to play and work our hardest,” Cameron said. “We are at a really good place right now.” Cameron, a Mississauga, Ontario, product, has scored nine of the team’s 14 goals this season. The hot start puts her at 28 goals and 68 points in her career, which stand seventh and tied for 6th, respectively, in OSU history. “I set a goal for myself to score at least 20 goals this season,” Cameron said. “I want to break the record and I can’t do that without our team and coming out hard everyday and practice.” As the Buckeyes prepare for their 8 p.m. game Thursday against Penn State, Cameron said the strategy against the Nittany Lions is to keep the team connected. “This practice we worked on being on the same page and finding open space because they play with three back,” Cameron said. “We need to have a lot of wide space to expose them.” Walker said the game will be a back-and-forth battle. “You need to contain your opponents’ top personalities and certainly Penn State has many and we need to make sure we have our attack as well,” Walker said. “The piece about Penn State is that they are scoring a lot of goals but they are also vulnerable and giving up some goals.” Cameron, a senior, said she’s especially ready for this year’s contest. “It’s my senior year, we always come out to battle and they are the best in our conference besides us,” Cameron said. “We always give them a run for their money.” The Buckeyes’ matchup against the Nittany Lions at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium will be televised live on Big Ten Network.
Derby County defender believes Chelsea youngster Callum Hudson-Odoi is trying to follow in the footsteps of Jadon Sancho.The 18-year-old winger has been a subject of three rejected bids from Bayern Munich this transfer window, as the Bundesliga giants are keen to lure him away from Chelsea.Hudson-Odoi is understood to be keen on a move to Germany in search more first-team football after only featuring three times in the Premier League for the Blues.Davies believes watching Sancho, who left Manchester City for Borussia Dortmund in the summer of 2017, flourish due to more first-team action has made Hudson-Odoi more unsettled at Stamford Bridge.Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.The former Hull City defender said, according to Sky Sports:“It’s whether Chelsea will offer him a big deal and will say ‘we want you to be involved in games’ like he has been recently, or whether he decides he wants to leave and join Bayern Munich and try to do what Jadon Sancho did, which is leave a British club and now find himself in the England squad and playing at the top of the Bundesliga.”
