first_imgLetterkenny U18’s unbeaten run came to an end in the cruellest of fashion on Saturday last when Armagh came away with a slender 11-8 victory in a very entertaining and exciting league cup final in Magherafelt. Letterkenny played more rugby but Armagh managed the game much better and had more “big game” experienced players on the pitch and this was the difference in a match where a single penalty kick separated the teams at the final whistle.The Armagh team on display was a much improved outfit from the last time these teams met in the league. The addition of the former Ulster coach Brian McLaughlin to the Armagh coaching entourage was also evident from the off. Letterkenny started the game in a very tentative fashion and allowed Armagh on the front foot from the start. Within 10 minutes Armagh had registered the first score of the game with a well worked try from an attaching scrum on the Letterkeny 22. Barry Finn, the Armagh number 8 and captain, picked and went blind. The Letterkenny blind side was very slow to react and winger Oisin Toal had to commit to the tackle leaving Finn an easy off load to his winger to score in the corner. The conversion was missed by the usually reliable Cormac Fox at out half.Letterkenny then got into the game from the restart with Joseph Dunleavy causing havoc in the Armagh defence and wining a penalty. From the resultant line out Letterkenny sent Daragh Taol on the attack and he was once again well supported by Dunleavy. Matthew Faulkner came in from outside centre to take quick ball and fix the Armagh defence before finding Daniel Faulkner on the loop.The powerful first centre then beat the covering defence to put Kevin Grant away in the corner for a very well worked score. The conversion was missed by Peter Scott to leave the game level with 15 minutes on the clock.Armagh then came thundering back at Letterkenny using their tight forwards to make inroads and draw two penalties in mid field for not rolling away. The referee then made the first of numerous strange decisions when he formally warned Letterkenny that the next penalty would draw a yellow card. Joeseph Dunleavy then made a thundering tackle on the Armagh prop, clearly released before going for the ball to be immediately blown for a penalty followed with gusto by a yellow card. Armagh then went for the jugular from the resultant line out well aware that Letterkenny had lost their best forward for seven minutes. Letterkenny then produced the bravest of defences by holding Armagh out and finally getting a penalty to relieve the pressure. Team captain Daniel Faulkner, leading by example, produced a series of plays and caries to take his team back into the Armagh half.He then chipped to the corner and followed up with a great tackle wining a penalty for not releasing. Peter Scott made no mistake with the boot to level the scores at 8 apiece. Dunleavy then re-joined the fray but was mindful of the fact that he could not take another yellow, leading to red. Letterkenny finished the half much stronger and were unlucky not to capitalise on line breaks by Matthew Faulkner and Daniel Faulkner when the ball was knocked on by the supporting player on both occasions.Letterkenny were playing into the wind in the second half and were forced to keep the ball in hand. This suited their style of play and it wasn’t long until Louis Carson was causing real difficulty to the Armagh defence after his introduction at half time. He was well supported by Connon Cannon upon his introduction followed by James Roulston. The fresh legs to the Letterkeny pack were significant as Armagh began to tire.Letterkenny were now dominating territory and possession but could not find a way through a very resolute Armagh defence. Numerous mistakes, some forced and some unforced, allowed the Armagh forwards turn over ball after ball and the boot of Fox was used to great effect to relieve the pressure.In what was their only concerted play in the Letterkenny half Armagh were awarded a penalty at the breakdown and Fox scored an excellent 3 pointer from near the half way line. Letterkenny again upped their efforts thanks to a great outside break by Matthew Faulkner but he had no one in support when he looked for the off load on the inside. Dunleavy, Carson and Ward continued the charge with a series of memorable carries but the supporting forwards were a little slow in getting there and this resulted in poor ball protection allowing Armagh turn the ball over once again. Then came the real turning point of the game when Armagh were eventually warned that a yellow card would be produced after six consecutive penalties near the 22. Three of these penalties were conceded by their best forward Barry Finn yet he escaped, unlike Dunleavy in the first half. The warning came only after three attempts by the Letterkenny captain to get the referee to take action.In a remarkable show of game management Armagh immediately substituted one of their props who was tiring. His replacement immediately conceded a penalty and received the yellow card. (It was interesting to note that Armagh then tried to send back the original prop after the seven minute sin bin was over. This “oversight” had to be brought to the referees attention by the Letterkenny coach.) With the numerical advantage Letterkenny went to the line but a poor lift allowed a golden attacking opportunity to be lost. Armagh did defend very well and perhaps Letterkenny should have played the widen channels at this stage.With the clock now the real enemy Letterkenny set up another great attack with the impressive Cannon on a ball run. He charged into the Armagh 22 and was eventual tackled. The tackler didn’t release and stole the ball which was not penalised by the referee. He maintained he was unsighted which was the only admission he made all day. The reliable boot of Fox put Letterkenny back on their own 5m line after a magnificent wind assisted clearance. With only two minutes remaining on the clock it looked like this was the match for Armagh but Letterkenny had other ideas.They then produced one of the most impressive passages of play witnessed by the large crowd when they went from their own 5m line to the Armagh 5m line through a series of strong carries by Dunleavy, Cannon and Faulkner, great inter-passing by Scott, Matthew Faulkner and Daragh Taol, and then a potential match winning snipe from the base of a ruck 30m out by substitute scrum half Josh Smeaton. Smeaton made it to the 5m line before being tackled as the Letterkenny support arrived for what appeared to be a try scoring opportunity. The influential referee had other ideas as he surprised all present by awarding a penalty for off side by a Letterkenny player despite the fact that no ruck had formed and it appeared that the Armagh tackler should have been penalised for not rolling away. Armagh kicked to touch from the resulting penalty and that was the game. Letterkenny were beaten by the more disciplined team on the day who carried out their Brian McLaughlin game plan to the letter. Armagh made much fewer mistakes and showed their experience of the big match occasions. Letterkenny will have learned a lot from this game and only time will tell if they can fulfil their potential and come back even stronger for the cup competition.Letterkenny were well served by Joseph Dunleavy, Daragh Toal and Matthew Faulkner on the day. Armagh had match winners in their captain Barry Finn and out-half Cormac Fox but it was the Letterkenny captain, Daniel Faulkner, who was the standout player on display. He continually dragged his team back into the game and was at the heart of everything good that Letterkenny did on the day.The saying is that you must “lose a final to win one” and this should be motivation for the Letterkenny team to regroup and focus on the cup competition which commences on Saturday next with a home game against Dungannon. The blue ribbon of youth rugby is the cup final in Ravenhill and this is now the clear target for a team that have done themselves and their club proud so far this seasonTeam: David Ward, Stephen Holmes, Christopher Green, Diarmiud Gallagher, Will Douglas, Martin Molloy, Daragh Toal, Joseph Dunleavy, Ben Khavia, Peter Scott, Oisin Toal, Daniel Faulkner (Captain), Matthew Faulkner, Adam Boal Quinn, Kevin Grant, James Roulston, Louis Carson, Connor Cannon, Stephen Gibson, Douglas Doyle, Josh Smeaton and Eunan Henry.RUGBY: LETTERKENNY U18s LEARN FROM FINAL DEFEAT was last modified: March 14th, 2016 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Chris Jeffries from Washington Court House recently announced the formation of a new company, Seed Genetics—DIRECT, LLC.Chris Jeffries“Seed Genetics—DIRECT, LLC will be a direct sales company offering a pricing structure that will be fair to all customers, not just the larger farmer. Seed Genetics—DIRECT will eliminate the middle man and deal directly with growers,” Jeffries said. “We will eliminate costly marketing programs that benefit a few, but are paid for by all. Our pricing will allow growers to pick and choose which programs work best in their management system and of course, we will only sell the highest quality and best performing seed genetics.”Always a proponent of research and testing, Seed Genetics—DIRECT, LLC will team with Agricultural Research & Testing from Williamsburg, Ind. as their testing partner. In 2017, Ag Research & Testing’s corn and soybean plots span from Galesburg, Ill. to Tiffin, Ohio and from Concord, Mich. to Danville, Ky. Ag Research & Testing has 28 corn locations with more than 13,000 yield plots and nearly 10,000 soybean yield plots.For spring 2018, Seed Genetics—DIRECT will offer nine conventional, five RR2Y, six RR2Xtend, and nine Liberty Link soybean varieties from 2.6 to 4.2 maturity. Additionally, SG—DIRECT will have access to Balance GT soybeans. Seed Genetics—DIRECT’s corn line up will offer 26 hybrids, ranging from 86 to 116 days in maturity. SG—DIRECT will have a large offering of conventional hybrids as well as a strong offering of GT, GTCBLL, GTCBLLRW, Viptera, and Artesian traits.“As the seed industry contracts from all the mega mergers and buyouts, it allows opportunities for expansion. From 2010 to 2016 independent regionals have grown 3.7% market share, showing that farmers prefer to work with strong independent companies. Seed Genetics—DIRECT plans to be a vital part of that continued growth,” Jeffries said. “If farmers are going to stay profitable in the current agricultural economy, they need to take the seed industry back from Wall Street.”Chris can be contacted at chrisjeffriesag@gmail.com; 740-505-0073; or P.O.

first_imgOne of the shrewdest politicians Maharashtra has ever seen, Vilasrao Deshmukh enjoyed the distinction of being the Maharashtra Chief Minister for the second longest term of seven years after Vasantrao Naik’s tenure of 11 years. Born on May 26, 1945, to a rich farmer Dagdojirao at Babhalgaon in Latur district, Deshmukh’s political journey was full of ups and downs.Deshmukh graduated with a degree in Science from M.E.S Abasaheb Garware College in Pune and later studied law at the I.L.S. Law College. Senior BJP leader Gopinath Munde was his colleague in the law college. Deshmukh chose to work for drought relief in his early political days. First, he became sarpanch of Babhalgaon on a Congress ticket in 1974 and then was elected as director of Osmanabad District Central Cooperative Bank and Maharashtra State Cooperative Bank in 1979. He was a member of Osmanabad Zilha Parishad and Deputy Chairman of Latur Taluka Panchayat Samiti from 1974 to 1980. In 1980, Deshmukh entered Assembly for the first time. He was inducted in the state cabinet in 1982. Since then, he handled various portfolios of Home, General Administration, Cooperation, Public Works, Transport, Legislative Affairs, Tourism, Agriculture, Animal Husbandry, Dairy Development Fisheries, Industry, Rural Development, Education, Technical Education, Sports and Youth Welfare.A rebel by nature, Deshmukh didn’t get along very well with then Chief Minister Sharad Pawar. He, along with Sushilkumar Shinde, tried time and again to topple Pawar’s government but every time the party high command managed to pacify him. “When I was Industries minister I got the CM in trouble on a number of occasions. Now, you learn a lesson and keep a watch on your Industries Minister,” Deshmukh once famously told former CM Ashok Chavan. Narayan Rane, who defected Shiv Sena to join Congress in 2005, was the Industries Minister in Chavan’s government.advertisementThe lowest point in Deshmukh’s political career came in 1995 when he lost the Assembly election from his home town Latur to independent candidate Janardan Waghmare. Deshmukh suspected that his bte noire Sharad Pawar was instrumental in his defeat. The next year, Deshmukh rebelled and contested the legislative council election as an independent. However, luck didn’t favour him and he lost the election. Following the rebellion, he was suspended from the Congress for six years. Suspended, Deshmukh focused on his educational trust Manjra Educational Trust and Manjra Cooperative Sugar Factory. In 1999, Congress gave him a ticket and he won the Assembly election from Latur with a margin of 91,000 votes. When the Congress and NCP combine was set to form the government Deshmukh became the first choice for the post of chief minister as the Congress wanted a staunch opponent of Pawar in the chair. Interestingly, Deshmukh was technically still suspended from Congress at that time.He took oath as CM on October 18, 1999, and served till January 17, 2003, when he was forced to resign in light of a controversy over the promotion of his actor son Retiesh’s first film Tujhe Meri Kasam. Deshmukh had asked the state’s publicity department to organise a campaign for Riteish’s film. Deshmukh was re-elected in 2004 and again became CM after the Congress preferred him over his best friend Shinde. He was sworn in as chief minister a second time on November 1, 2004. His second tenure also ended before his tenure after the infamous November 26, 2008, terror attacks. This time, too, the reason was Riteish. Deshmukh had taken Riteish and film producer Ram Gopal Verma to inspect the damaged Hotel Taj Mahal after the attack. The Congress rehabilitated him by making him a Rajya Sabha member in 2010 and subsequently minister in the Union Cabinet for Heavy Industries and Public Enterprises first, then for Rural Development and recently for Science and Technology.Deshmukh was also one of the most controversial personalities in the state politics. His name came up in the Adarsh Housing Society scam in which he allegedly approved many irregularities regarding reduction of road width to granting extra FSI to the society. His proximity to film producer Subhash Ghai landed him in trouble. Deshmukh had allotted land for Ghai’s film institute Whistling Woods International for Rs 30 crore whereas its actual market price was Rs 300 crore. The Supreme Court also imposed a fine of Rs 10 lakh on Deshmukh for shielding a money lender Congress MLA Dilip Sananda from police action.Deshmukh enjoyed personal and political friendship with political opponents like Gopinath Munde, Manohar Joshi and the late Pramod Mahajan. However, his political ambitions took him away from close friends like Sushilkumar Shinde and Ashok Chavan. When Deshmukh was made CM in 2004, Shinde had remarked, “I failed to recognise a green snake in the grass.”advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDehradun: Congress president Rahul Gandhi launched his party’s campaign for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls in Uttarakhand on Saturday, saying Prime Minister Narendra Modi was posing for cameras at the Corbett National Park for a documentary when CRPF jawans were being killed in Pulwama.At a rally here, in which BJP veteran and former Uttarakhand chief minister Bhuvan Chandra Khanduri’s son Manish Khanduri joined the Congress, Gandhi also said his party would introduce a scheme of guaranteed minimum income for the poor if elected to power. Also Read – How a psychopath killer hid behind the mask of a devout laity!”Immediately after the Pulwama attack, in which 40 CRPF jawans were killed, the Congress had said it was with the government and the country. I had cancelled all my programmes. “Everyone knows what Narendra Modi was doing when our jawans were being killed in Pulwama. He was posing for the cameras to shoot for a National Geographic documentary,” Gandhi said to loud cheers from a large gathering at the Parade Ground. “Modi shoots for three-and-a-half hours on a day something like Pulwama happens and he still talks about patriotism,” the Congress president added. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedThe ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) had rejected the charges when they were first levelled by the Congress. On the issue of the Rafale fighter jet deal, Gandhi reiterated his charge of Modi backing industrialist Anil Ambani in getting a related offset contract, a charge repeatedly denied by the government. “All of you must have heard of Anil Ambani. Can he make an aeroplane? He cannot even make a paper aeroplane as children do,” he said, holding up a piece of paper. “Still, Modi took him along with him as part of his delegation to France to ensure that he got the deal worth Rs 30,000 crore,” he added. Gandhi asked why the defence deal, negotiated by the previous UPA regime at Rs 526 crore per aircraft, was finalised by the Modi government for Rs 1,600 crore apiece. Reiterating the “chowkidar chor hai” (the watchman is a thief) barb, the Congress president said he had posed four questions to the prime minister in Parliament on the Rafale deal. “The prime minister delivered a long speech lasting one-and-a-half hours in Parliament, but failed to answer even one of my questions. All he did was keep looking up, down and sideways. Why? Because he is guilty,” he said and asked the youth of the state to pose the same questions to Modi when he comes to Uttarakhand for campaigning.last_img read more

OSU junior forward Christian Soldat (13) dribbles the ball during a game against Rutgers on Nov. 13 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won 4-0. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorAfter garnering the No. 9 overall seed in the NCAA tournament and having a first-round bye, the Ohio State men’s soccer team will finally get back out on the pitch against Dayton on Sunday in the second round at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes claimed their fourth regular-season Big Ten title in program history in the final game of the regular season against Michigan. They could not add a Big Ten tournament title to their trophy case however, as the Scarlet and Gray fell to Maryland in the championship game.“Maryland gave us a really physical game that we weren’t really expecting from them after we played them the first time,” junior defender and co-captain Tyler Kidwell said.Despite OSU’s loss, the Buckeyes will be returning to the NCAA tournament for the second year in a row to try and beat Dayton for the second time this season.The Scarlet and Gray defeated the Flyers on Sept. 25 in a 2-0 game. Although the Buckeyes have already topped Dayton, OSU knows it cannot take its one win lightly.“We have a psychological advantage having beaten them already this season, but we can’t take anything for granted,” senior defender and co-captain Liam Doyle said. “It’s going to be tough because it’s tournament time. Anything could happen.”Coach John Bluem said it could be difficult to beat a team the second time around because the opposing team is coming in with a greater motivation to be better than the first time.“This is the NCAA tournament. It’s almost like a new season in a different season,” Bluem said. “I think you throw that first game out. Our guys are just looking forward to playing in the NCAA tournament again. They’re excited about it and they are ready to go.”The Buckeyes are expecting the Flyers to come out with intensity and physicality because Dayton will be seeking revenge.The Scarlet and Gray plan to focus mentally and work on their physicality heading into Sunday’s match.“NCAA tournament games are always more physical than the rest because it’s win or go home,” Kidwell said.Senior midfielder and co-captain Zach Mason echoed his teammate, but he said the team the Flyers faced in September is completely different from the one that will be stepping inside the lines on Sunday. “The season is on the line for both of us, so we’re going to come in ready to fight and win the game,” Mason said. “We did well earlier this year against them, so we’re going to know what to do. We’ve really grown since our first game, so we’re excited about our opportunity.”Dayton’s first-round victoryThe Flyers hosted Oakland in the first round of the NCAA tournament, where they defeated the Grizzlies 4-3 in penalty kicks after the game ended as a 2-2 double-overtime draw on Thursday night.Oakland scored in both the 8th and 23rd minutes of the game, giving it a 2-0 lead. However, the Flyers managed to score within the final 10 seconds of the first half, leaving the team down only one point.Dayton leveled the match in the 72nd minute, forcing the game to go into the overtimes. Neither team could convert in either overtime period, therefore moving the game to a penalty-kick shootout.Dayton came out on top in penalty kicks when Oakland could not manage to convert its final try.With the penalty-kick win, the Flyers advanced to the second round of the NCAA Tournament for the first time in school history.Postseason reunionOSU goalkeeper Chris Froschauer has fortified the Buckeyes’ defense all season long, capturing the Big Ten Goalkeeper of the Year award. When the senior takes the field on Sunday, he will have a little extra motivation, as his opponent is very familiar.Froschauer spent three seasons in Dayton as the starting goalie for the Flyers before transferring to Columbus for his final collegiate campaign.“I figured if I wanted to take a chance somewhere else and do something, why not do it now,” Froschauer told The Lantern earlier in the season about the decision to transfer. “I get to play college soccer one time, so I went for it.”For the Buckeyes, Froschauer has started every game and currently leads the Big Ten in save percentage with .809, while having nine clean sheets to his credit. What’s nextThe winner between OSU and Dayton will move on to face the winner of Santa Clara and Stanford in the third round of the NCAA tournament. The game is scheduled to be played on either Nov. 28 or 29. read more

OSU redshirt sophomore middle blocker Blake Lesson goes to serve in the set against No. 4 Long Beach State. OSU won 3-1. Credit: Aliyyah Jackson | Lantern ReporterThe top-ranked Ohio State Men’s volleyball team (13-0, 4-0 MIVA) is set to play two matches this weekend. Friday they will face Quincy University (3-8, 1-4 MIVA) and Saturday they will take on Lindenwood University (0-11, 0-6 MIVA).After setting the program’s longest win streak with its 33rd straight victory, OSU now sits four games shy of Loyola University’s 40-game win streak set in the 2014-15 seasons. Two wins this weekend would bring OSU that much closer to the national mark.The all-time record of 47 straight wins was set by UCLA in 1983-1985.“Honestly, and I don’t know if people believe this, but I don’t think about that at all,” said redshirt sophomore middle blocker Blake Leeson. “It’s not something that I go into each match thinking about. It’s something to defend and we’re going to the best of our ability continue to do that, but I don’t think I add any pressure on myself more than I already do.”QuincyThe Quincy Hawks come to Columbus having only beat the Buckeyes twice in the 53-game history, and having never beat OSU inside St. John Arena. The Buckeyes have only lost 14 total sets against the Hawks since the teams first met in 1993.The trip to Columbus will be a homecoming for Ohio natives redshirt junior setter Thane Fanfulik and senior middle blocker Jarrod Kelso, both from Hilliard, Ohio, and junior outside hitter Anthony Winter from Olmsted Falls, Ohio.Kelso and Winter are slotted in the No. 2 and No. 3 spots in kills per set for the Hawks with 2.10 and 1.70 kills, respectively. Fanfulik comes into the matchup averaging 7.21 assists per set.“I think the challenging thing for us is that we just got to stay focused,” OSU coach Pete Hanson said. “We can’t play down to the level of the opponent. When we talked about that in practice this week about ‘Hey, we got to set a standard and play to our standard.’”LindenwoodIn OSU’s short history with the Lindenwood Lions, the Buckeyes have won all eight matches. Despite its historical dominance against the Lions, OSU is not looking past them this weekend.“They’re young,” Hanson said. “They haven’t won too many matches, but they could come in and just create problems by playing hard and playing with energy if our guys don’t respond. So, we’ve talked more about our response to that physically and mentally and playing our game.”Lindenwood has two players ranked in the top-five in four statistical categories within the Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association. Junior libero Ryan Vorderer is ranked No. 4 in digs per set with 2.25. Lindenwood’s freshman middle blocker Sam Schindler has the fifth-best hitting percentage in the conference at .332, and holds the No. 2 spot in blocks per set and aces per set with 1.16 blocks per set and 0.42 aces per set.Schindler trails OSU senior opposite hitter Miles Johnson, slotted in the No. 1 spot, and OSU senior outside hitter Nicolas Szerszen, slotted in the No. 2 spot, in hitting percentage. Johnson, attacking at a rate of .442, earned his third straight MIVA Offensive Player of the Week honor on Tuesday, becoming the first player since Shawn Sangrey in 2011 to win the award in three consecutive weeks.OSU begins the weekend’s play against Quincy on Friday at 7 p.m. in St. John Arena. On Sunday, the Buckeyes take on Lindenwood in St. John Arena at 4 p.m. read more
