Payne’s Diaghilev had two fences down.Lynch came back in the second round with four faults, as did Hanley, but O’Connor and Twomey lifted their game to produce zero scores, leaving Ireland in joint third place with Britain on a 12 fault team total at the finish.Show jumping team manager Robert Splaine said after the Nations’ Cup: “I’m a little disappointed for the lads, who came here believing they were good enough to win, and that was my belief, too. We were capable of being a bit better, and that little bit would have made a big difference, but nevertheless we’re on the podium, with good points early in the season, so overall I’m satisfied with that achievement. “There were three good clear rounds from Denis Lynch, Cian O’Connor and Billy Twomey which helped us achieve today’s finish. I’d like to thank the owners yet again for their support.”Belgium finished second of the eight teams competing in the second leg of the Division One Furusiyya 2014 season at La Baule, with an eight fault total.Cian O’Connor and Quidam’s Cherie.center_img 22 July 2014, 22:44 HORSE SPORT IRELAND ANNOUNCES SQUAD FOR HICKSTEAD NATIONS’ CUP 16 May 2014, 16:53 IRELAND FINISHES JOINT THIRD IN FRENCH NATIONS’ CUP 20 June 2014, 19:17 IRELAND FINISHES SEVENTH IN ROTTERDAM NATIONS’ CUP 11 May 2015, 12:38 Splaine announces Irish squad for French Nations’ Cuplast_img read more

Pees says Lewis “going to play” Sunday, but how much remains to be seen

first_imgOWINGS MILLS, Md. — It’s all but confirmed that Ravens linebacker Ray Lewis will make his return to the field for the first round of the playoffs against the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday, but trying to project the role he’ll play remains a bit of a mystery.Only 11 weeks removed from surgery to repair a torn right triceps suffered against the Dallas Cowboys on Oct. 14, Lewis has accelerated a recovery process that typically takes a minimum of four months. Of course, his announcement Wednesday stating his intention to retire after the season further complicated how defensive coordinator Dean Pees might like to handle his workload in his first game since Week 6.“I can’t be real specific on how or what he is going to be doing other than the fact that we are more than happy to have him back and just having him out there on the field is an inspiration,” Pees said. “I don’t know how else to explain it other than — he’s going to play.”Lewis is expected to start next to fellow inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe, but how the 37-year-old will handle blockers and full contact remains to be seen. The Ravens haven’t practiced in full pads since earlier in the season and Lewis was limited in his first few weeks since returning to practice on Dec. 5.It’s possible that Pees and the Ravens will handle Lewis in a similar manner to how they re-acclimated linebacker Terrell Suggs when he returned from an Achilles tendon injury earlier this season. Suggs played just over 50 percent of the defensive snaps against the Houston Texans on Oct. 21 and took several series off during the course of the game.Young linebacker Josh Bynes, who made three starts with Lewis, Ellerbe, and Jameel McClain all missing time over the last six weeks, will be ready to spell Lewis if needed. However, it’s difficult to envision the veteran asking out of the game knowing it will likely be his final game in Baltimore — or even of his career.“I don’t think the people that I work with would tell me no [on] Sunday,” Lewis said. “We’ve got a great relationship with each other that I trust them, and they trust me. I’ve worked my butt off to get to this point. There is no reason for me not to be playing on Sunday.”Crunch time for FlaccoThe common theme that emerged following the firing of offensive coordinator Cam Cameron on Dec. 10 was the need for quarterback Joe Flacco to finish strong over the final weeks of the season before his rookie contract expires.The Ravens hope Flacco’s performance against the New York Giants in Week 16 is a harbinger of strong performances to come in the postseason. And the quarterback would improve his chances of securing the type of long-term deal he prefers with a deep run through the month of January.If Baltimore is unable to come to an agreement with Flacco and agent Joe Linta, the organization would be faced with allowing the 27-year-old to hit free agency or using the franchise tag, which is projected to be $14.6 million in 2013. Flacco dismissed the notion of contract negotiations being a major motivator for him to perform well in his fifth trip to the postseason in five years.“I go out there, and I play football,” Flacco said. “You try to lead this team to victories. That’s what we are trying to do right now. That’s all I’m concerned about is making a playoff run and making the Super Bowl. All that other stuff will take care of itself.”Flacco appeared to take a quantum leap forward in outperforming New England’s Tom Brady in last season’s AFC Championship game, but his play was as schizophrenic as ever in comparing how he fared at home and on the road during the regular season. He threw 15 touchdowns and five interceptions for a 99.0 passer rating in eight home contests, but Flacco passed for only seven touchdowns to go along with five interceptions and a 74.9 rating on the road.Those numbers won’t be on his mind starting Sunday when he begins the journey to try to lead the Ravens a step further than he did a year ago. What bearing that has on a new contract remains to be seen.“Whatever happens, happens,” Flacco said. “It’s not really that big of a deal at the end of the day.”Flacco better hope it is — for his own sake — as he plays out the final days of his rookie contract.Ellerbe’s future with Lewis exitingWith Lewis walking away from the game after the season, the Ravens would presumably turn to Ellerbe to take his place — at least in the short-term future — next to McClain at the inside linebacker position.However, the Ravens will need to re-sign the fourth-year linebacker, who will become an unrestricted free agent after the season. Lewis’ retirement will clear approximately $4.4 million from the projected 2013 salary cap, but it will be interesting to see how much Ellerbe will command in the open market.“I love Baltimore. I started my career here, I’d love to finish it here,” Ellerbe said. “It’s a business, so it’s not up to me. If it was up to me, I’d be here.”Possessing better coverage skills than McClain, who inked a three-year, $10.5 million deal to remain in Baltimore after lukewarm interest last offseason, Ellerbe would likely be more appealing to other teams, but his injury history will likely be a factor in keeping his price tag at a reasonable level.The University of Georgia product missed three straight games with an ankle injury last month and missed seven games with groin and hamstring injuries last season.In 13 games this season, Ellerbe finished second on the team with 98 tackles and collected 4 1/2 sacks as an effective blitzer from the inside linebacker position.last_img read more

LDS mission call has to wait for State Am final

first_imgHIGHLAND, Utah — Newly crowned State Amateur champion Joe Parkinson had planned all week to open his LDS mission call letter on Saturday night despite receiving it in the mail on Wednesday. He wanted to wait until his girlfriend, Kirsten, flew in from New York.However, after making it to the State Amateur finals late Saturday afternoon, his father, Dan, urged him to wait until after his State Am finals match with Stu Gold Sunday afternoon, perhaps so he wouldn’t be distracted.So minutes after receiving his State Amateur trophy Sunday afternoon, Parkinson opened the large white envelope with his large extended family of five sisters, one brother and 15 nephews and nieces looking on. Parkinson read that he was going to the Florida Tampa (Spanish-speaking) Mission on Sept. 22, four days after he turns 19.And who should happen to be the brand-new president of the Tampa Mission for the new State Amateur champion? None other than Bruce Summerhays, the 1966 State Amateur champion, who was a successful golfer on the Champions Tour for the past 16 years.Joe’s father must have been inspired, because earlier Sunday, he told his son that Summerhays was the president of the Tampa mission, to which Joe replied, “that’s cool.”Now he can swap stories with his new mission president about being a State Amateur champion.”It will be very fun,” Joe said. “I’m very excited.”e-mail: [email protected]last_img read more
