USA reached the CONCACAF Gold Cup final as Clint Dempsey equalled the nation’s goalscoring record in a 2-0 win against Costa Rica.Clint Dempsey scored a record-equalling goal to help the United States reach the CONCACAF Gold Cup final after a 2-0 win over Costa Rica.Dempsey set up Jozy Altidore for the game’s opening goal in the 72nd minute at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Saturday.His clever 25-yard free-kick then saw him draw level with Landon Donovan on a record 57 goals for USA.Bruce Arena’s men were deserved winners as they reached the decider, in which they will face either Mexico or Jamaica on Wednesday.Dempsey was dropped to the bench for the clash as Arena made five changes to the team that beat El Salvador 2-0 in the quarter-finals.Eric Lichaj, Justin Morrow, Matt Hedges and Gyasi Zardes also made way, with Jorge Villafana, Matt Besler, Graham Zusi, Kellyn Acosta and Jordan Morris starting.Costa Rica were unchanged from the team that edged past Panama 1-0 in the quarter-finals.USA almost made the perfect start as Altidore and Morris exchanged passes, the latter hitting the post just seconds into the clash.The tournament hosts had their second chance in the 15th minute, but Altidore decided to pass the ball back into the middle of the box instead of taking a shot himself. Acosta then hit a right-footed shot high and wide to the right.Marco Urena tried to put Costa Rica on the board in the 37th minute after streaking down the middle of the field, but his shot was blocked by a charging Tim Howard.USA continued to look the more likely and they almost struck seven minutes into the second half.With Costa Rica goalkeeper Patrick Pemberton off his line, an incoming cross for Altidore was too high, and Darlington Nagbe was unable to capitalise afterwards.But USA would finally take the lead in the 72nd minute, thanks to Dempsey and Altidore.Dempsey did brilliantly to find space before releasing Altidore, who finished well in a one-on-one with Pemberton.Victory was sealed through the record-equalling goal from Dempsey, the forward smartly placing a free-kick under a jumping wall and into the bottom corner to send USA into the final.
England produced a fighting performance in this morning’s foursomes against Spain and need 3½ points from the afternoon’s 10 singles to win back the Seve Ballesteros trophy at Burnham & Berrow.The foursomes were shared 2½ points apiece, thanks to a last gasp half from the final pair, Nick Marsh and Michael Saunders, who had been three down after 12 holes. It took the overall scoreline to 12-8 in England’s favour, with 15½ points required for victory.Marsh and Saunders narrowed the deficit to one down with birdies on the 14th and 17th – both par threes – and won the 18th with a great up and down from a greenside bunker, while the Spanish pair three-putted from the back of the green.England’s two wins were provided by Ashley Chesters and Jimmy Mullen (Image © Leaderboard Photography), who won 6/4; and shortly afterwards by Gemma Clews and Hollie Muse who won 3/2.Chesters and Mullen set off set off at high speed, with five birdies in the first eight holes, taking them to seven up. They didn’t lose a hole until the ninth where they missed the green in regulation for the first time and dropped a shot. Spain had two birdies in the next four holes but their challenge ended after their tee shot finished in a bush on the short 14th and the point was England’s.Clews and Muse were relentless, reeling off the pars with very tidy golf and steadily edging further ahead of their opponents.Meanwhile, Alice Hewson and Bethan Popel also produced par golf, but their opponents were inspired, with four birdies and an eagle which helped them to a 4/2 win.Sean Towndrow and Ashton Turner were locked in an excellent match which was spattered with birdies, but in which the Spanish pair just had the upper hand on the greens. The England pair battled fiercely and won the 17th to keep the game alive, but were beaten on the last. 10 May 2015 England lead Spain by four

(AP Photo/File)MIAMI (AP) — Jack Ramsay, a Hall of Fame coach who led the Portland Trail Blazers to the 1977 NBA championship before he became one of the NBA’s most respected broadcasters, has died following a long battle with cancer. He was 89.Ramsay’s death was announced by ESPN, for whom he worked as a broadcaster for many years.“Dr. Jack Ramsay has passed,” ESPN spokesman Chris LaPlaca wrote on Twitter early Monday. “A rare man. Loved and respected by all. Fascinating life well lived. An inspiration to so many.”Ramsay coached in the NBA for parts of 21 seasons before embarking on a second career as an NBA analyst. He was diagnosed with melanoma in 2004 and later battled growths and tumors that spread to his legs, lungs and brain, then later fought prostate cancer and most recently a marrow syndrome.In this Sunday, April, 14, 2002, file photo, former Portland Trail Blazers coach Jack Ramsay smiles during a special 25th anniversary reunion of the Trail Blazers’ 1976-77 championship team at halftime of their NBA basketball game against the Los Angeles Lakers, in Portland, Ore. (AP Photo/Shane Young, File)His affinity for fitness never wavered, though. Ramsay, who competed in at least 20 triathlons during his life, worked out regularly into his 80s, even as he battled the various forms of cancer that he was stricken with. He often spoke of his love of swimming in the Gulf of Mexico near his home in Naples, Fla., or jogging in a pool or from wall to wall in his hotel room when he was traveling on NBA assignments.“He’s probably forgotten more about the game than I know,” Miami Heat coach and president Pat Riley once said of Ramsay, whom he counted as a close friend.Ramsay also spent several years late in life caring for his wife, Jean, who was diagnosed in 2001 with Alzheimer’s disease. She died in January 2010.Ramsay had enormous popularity within the league, even until the final stages of his life. To commemorate Ramsay’s 89th birthday earlier this year, Portland coach Terry Stotts wore a loud checkered jacket and open-collared shirt for a Blazers’ game — a nod to how Ramsay dressed when he coached the club.“Jack’s life is a beacon which guides us all,” Bill Walton, who was on Ramsay’s 1977 title team in Portland, told USA Today in 2007. “He is our moral compass, our spiritual inspiration. He represents the conquest of substance over hype. He is a true saint of circumstance.”John T. Ramsay was born Feb. 21, 1925, in Philadelphia and enrolled at Saint Joseph’s in 1942, eventually becoming captain of the basketball team there for his senior season. He earned a doctorate in education from the University of Pennsylvania in 1949, explaining the “Dr. Jack” moniker that most players and fans simply knew him by.Ramsay’s biggest impact on Hawk Hill would be when he started coaching his alma mater in 1955. He was wildly successful there, going 234-72 and taking the Hawks to the NCAA tournament seven times, the Final Four in 1961 and to a No. 1 preseason ranking by Sports Illustrated in 1965.To Ramsay, the most significant part of the Saint Joseph’s years was this: “I met my wife there,” he said.He was a founding father of sorts for the growth of “Big 5” basketball, which is what the annual series between Philadelphia-area schools Saint Joseph’s, La Salle, Penn, Villanova and Temple was dubbed.“I felt a lot of personal pride and interest in the outcome of those games,” Ramsay told the AP in 2004. “There wasn’t as much interest in conference play. There wasn’t the impact of a national championship or conference championships like there is today. The Big 5 was clearly the biggest thing any of those schools were involved in at that point.”Ramsay took over as coach of the Philadelphia 76ers in 1968, moved on to the Buffalo Braves in 1972 and took his craft to Portland in 1976 — where he took a team with stars like Walton and Maurice Lucas and delivered an NBA championship in his first season, beating the 76ers in six games in the final series.“For me, it was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and one that I will cherish forever,” Ramsay in an 1997 interview.Indeed, that was his lone NBA title. Walton got hurt the next year, crippling Portland’s chances of getting back to championship form during that era. Ramsay coached the Blazers for nine more seasons without another trip to the finals, and spent the final three years of his NBA sideline career in Indiana — resigning from the Pacers in November 1988 after the team got off to an 0-7 start.Ramsay was 864-783 in his NBA career, being named one of the league’s Top 10 all-time coaches in 1996.When he left the Pacers, Ramsay carefully did not use the word “retire,” and began working as a television analyst on 76ers games. Eventually, he worked on Heat television broadcasts for eight seasons before moving full-time to ESPN for radio and TV commentating before the 2000-01 season.“So grateful that his path crossed ours,” his former Heat broadcast partner Eric Reid wrote on Twitter early Monday. “Hall of Fame coach and man.”

Families in US enclave in north Mexico hold sad Thanksgiving MOST READ Ateneo played without its starting libero Dani Ravena who is recovering from her appendectomy operation on Tuesday, and opposite hitter Ponggay Gaston, and the diminished lineup proved to be a factor in the loss that saw the Lady Eagles slide to a 4-3 record.“Even though Dani is just a rookie, she’s a crucial player in our rotation, and of course Ponggay too because she subs in for Jules [Samonte], so when one player has a bad game we don’t have a substitute,” said Madayag.The Lady Eagles enjoyed a 21-11 lead in the third set but squandered it all and allowed the Lady Spikers to take the 24-22 match point before Madayag and Kat Tolentino teamed up to extend the match to the fourth set.La Salle held off Ateneo in the fourth set when Kianna Dy gave the Lady Spikers a 24-19 lead with a block on Tolentino before Samonte ironically awarded the victory to the Lady Spikers when her final serve hit the net.“We know our lapses, so we’ll get back to training and fix what needs to be fixed,” said Madayag who had 10 points in the loss.ADVERTISEMENT Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Neymar scored the third penalty after David Luiz and Marcelo also scored from the spot. Brazil goalkeeper Julio Cesar saved the first two penalties and watched Gonzalo Jara’s final attempt hit the post. Brazil will next face either Colombia or Uruguay in the quarterfinals. Time for a shootout! Match moves into penalties as second half of extra-time comes to an end. Chile almost scored a few seconds before the end as Pinilla’s shot hit the crossbar. Brazil get a worthy corner, but couldn’t make much of it. 87′: Medel taken off on a stretcher, Rojas replaces him. 72′: Willian steps in place of Oscar, Brazil pushing forward. Match in extra time. End of normal time as Howard Webb blows the whistle. Stay tuned for another 30 minutes of action as Brazil try to sharpen their finishes. 87′: Chile’s Arturo Vidal is substituted for Mauricio Pinilla 55′: Hulk gets booked for handball after his goal is disallowed.

Dion Waiters scored 21 points for Miami, which was potentially playing the next-to-last home game of Dwyane Wade’s career. Hassan Whiteside came off the bench to finish with 18 points and 15 rebounds for Miami, and Wade scored 17 for the Heat.“Kind of like a playoffs kind of game,” Wade said. “It was a good basketball game. They held us at bay. Every time we tried to make a run and get close, they made something happen.”Detroit and Brooklyn also lost on Wednesday, meaning the race for the No. 6 spot in the East is even more muddled than it was entering the night. Detroit is sixth at 39-39, Brooklyn and Orlando (which beat New York) are 39-40, and the Heat fell to ninth at 38-40 — a half-game out of eighth, a game out of sixth, but running out of time.It could be a doubly costly loss for Miami. Josh Richardson returned from a three-game absence with a sore heel, and left early in the third quarter with a leg injury. He’ll get an MRI on Thursday and the Heat are concerned.“They got us into some tough looks and when we were open, we missed some of those,” said Heat coach Erik Spoelstra, whose team shot 41 percent and went only 12 for 20 from the foul line. “It was a combination of everything. You have to credit their defense.”ADVERTISEMENT Duterte wants probe of SEA Games mess Boston Celtics forward Gordon Hayward drives to the basket as Miami Heat center Bam Adebayo defends during the second half of an NBA basketball game Wednesday, April 3, 2019, in Miami.
