Spurs took a big step towards reaching the second-tier European competition with a 2-1 win against Arsenal on Sunday thanks to Toby Alderweireld’s late goal. Mourinho has already won the Europa League with Manchester United and with Porto – in its earlier guise as the UEFA Cup – and wants his side to allow him a crack at a third. “I would love to play Europa League,” said the Spurs boss, whose side are eighth in the Premier League table. “If you ask (six-time Formula One world champion) Lewis Hamilton if he wants to win Formula Two, I don’t think it will be a great deal for him, but it is a competition and I prefer to play Europa League than to not play.” While the victory helped Spurs’ European ambitions, it dealt a major blow to Arsenal’s. Boss Mikel Arteta has vowed to keep on fighting until all hope has gone. His side were in front through Alexandre Lacazette’s first-half screamer before a defensive howler allowed Son Heung-min to equalise, with Alderweireld then left unmarked at a late corner.

Walsh learns lessons from injuries, teammates

first_imgGREGORY DIXON/Herald PhotoWhen she first stepped onto the UW soccer fields in 2004, then-freshman Taylor Walsh didn’t know what to expect.She was coming to a team with outstanding forwards Marissa Brown, Kara Kabellis and Amy Vermeulen, and she didn’t know how she would fit into the scoring formula.Through her first three games of the 2004 season, however, it was Walsh who looked like the veteran, scoring three points. More importantly, Walsh and Vermeulen had developed a connection that could prove to be one that produced a plethora of goals for Wisconsin.However, Walsh’s good fortunes were about to take a turn for the worse.In her fourth game, Walsh sprained her ankle and was forced to leave the game. The next weekend, the trainers thought Walsh had developed mononucleosis and she had to sit for two games. When she was finally cleared to play in the seventh game of the year, Walsh tore the meniscus in her right knee and had to miss the remainder of the year. All in all, it wasn’t a good month for Walsh.”After I tore my meniscus, I was like, this is the worst season of my life,” Walsh said. “Looking back, it worked out because if I would have played that game, I wouldn’t have been able to take a red shirt. I couldn’t bear to stay home when they played, so I begged my dad to drive me to Illinois and Northwestern and my mom flew me to Ohio State. It was really difficult not being there.”Not only was the injury devastating for Walsh, but head coach Dean Duerst was equally disappointed to see Walsh’s fast start to the season ruined by an injury.”[As soon as she got here], Taylor clicked with Vermeulen,” Duerst said. “That’s why it was so exciting to see her start out so well and get on a roll, get confidence and score goals for us. [The injury] became a real challenge that you are now faced with the situation where you aren’t on the field. Adversity will challenge you in a certain way that you have to figure out what it is all about and learn from it.”When the women’s soccer team finished the season 16-6-1 in 2004 and lost to Notre Dame in the first round of the NCAA Tournament, it began one of the most important off-seasons for Walsh. Put through a rigorous training regimen in the off-season, Walsh got back on the field a year later with a fresh start and a stronger leg. The only problem was that Walsh’s mental edge was still on the mend. “I was over-thinking everything,” Walsh said. “I was thinking about what the coaches thought about me, what other players were thinking, how I was playing and every touch I made. My mind was racing all over the place and it was a bad situation. I played fine but I didn’t have a great season.”Walsh played in all 24 of the team’s games in 2005, starting 15, but never really could find the back of the net, scoring only three goals in her first year back. However, Walsh knew she still had the talent and the skills to play when she scored two goals against her in-state rival Wisconsin-Milwaukee. For Walsh, it was a nice welcome back gift.”It was one of the high points of my season,” Walsh said. “It was my welcome back party against a team that I really don’t like, because I know a lot of the girls on the team. I love them but it’s always a grudge match. It really helped my confidence.”Even though she struggled to regain her form, Walsh took refuge in having her two best friends playing soccer with her in Katy Meuer and Ann Eshun. These three were not only in the same recruiting class, but also went to three rival high schools in the Madison area (Meuer went to Madison Memorial, Eshun to Edgewood and Walsh to Madison East).It was at this level they developed a rapport with each other, although it wasn’t always friendly competition. “I met Taylor through (the Olympic Development Program) and all three of us played on the same club team,” Meuer said. “We always competed in practice and our club team was very competitive. I remember Taylor and Ann going against each other one-on-one all day on the field, and I think it helped all of our individual skills become better.””We had one of the best experiences playing club [soccer],” Walsh added. “Katy’s high school was a big rival of everyone in the Madison area and no one never really liked them. Katy is a feisty player in general who pushes you around a lot. That’s Katy though. Ann and I played against each other once, but it was fun since we won that game. … It wasn’t necessary friendly competition, but healthy since we needed to compete to get better.”Their friendship continued to develop when all three decided to attend UW and play soccer on the same team. “I was very excited. I thought it was really cool that we kind of knew each other already and now, I didn’t have to come in as this lone freshman not knowing anybody,” Meuer said. “Going to college together has made us a lot closer. We got to practice everyday together, travel together, see each other 24-7, going to library and movies together. We are really close with each other.””I love it [and] I think it’s exciting that you get to see your best friends everyday,” Walsh said.Through the first 11 games of this season, it seems like Walsh is back to her old self. She has tied her career high with three goals and has dished out three assists as Wisconsin boasts a 5-4-2 record overall. The key to Walsh’s early success this season could be in what she does before the game.”Taylor has a lot of crazy superstitions,” said junior goalie and former roommate Lynn Murray. “[She has to] straighten her hair before every game. She had a salad before the first three games this year and scored in all three. So now she has a salad before every game. Just crazy little things that just make her the player she is.”Putting her pre-game meals aside, what has made Walsh a complete player is that she has matured in all facets of her game, learning the skill and characteristics that go into playing the forward position. Plus, she has regained her mental edge, which she was sorely looking for after her injury.”Mentally, I am more focused and mature in my game this year than last year,” Walsh said. “Last year I was testing the waters to come back. This year, I am seeing things more, understanding my position, what the coaches and my teammates are looking for me to do. I am actually happy with [how I am playing] for once, which is saying a lot since I am so hard on myself.”last_img read more

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments By Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The Kodak Chevrolet Lumina, driven by Ernie Irvan, that made him the 1991 Dayton 500 winner is being featured at Countryside Motors in Wellington.The Lumina, which came to Wellington on June 19, will be on hand for viewing in the showroom for the next couple of weeks.Believe it or not it has been 24 years since Irvan finished his 200 laps in first place winning $233,000 prize money. He finished the race at 3:22.30, besting second place finisher Sterling Marlin. The average speed for the car during the race was 148.148 mph in front of 145,000 fans.Today, the Lumina is for show and one Sumner County NASCAR enthusiasts can see firsthand for the rest of the month.“Come see a racing legend in our main showroom,” said Jeff Jesina of Countryside Motors. “You can take pictures and get up close with the actual Chevy NASCAR winner.”Ernie IrvanIn 1991, Irvan coasted to the checkers to become the first Californian since Marvin Panch in 1961 to win the Daytona 500.The 1991 Daytona was a dramatic one with newly pit rules implemented at the time and late race drama.First of all, the race began a series of changes to pit road procedure after the death of a Melling Racing rear tire changer in a pit road accident at Atlanta the previous November. There was a series of new pit procedures that changed the complexity of the race. But the rules were so restrictive that they were eventually alleviated by the next April.At the time in the Daytona 500, teams considered it too time consuming to change four tires since it had to be done under the green flag.It would adversely affect the race, as Kyle Petty ran the entire 500 miles on the same left side tires.The race also had plenty of late race drama.With 16 laps to go, Richard Petty and off-road racer Robby Gordon tangled on the backstretch. Polesitter and leader Davey Allison pitted with the leaders, allowing Rusty Wallace to take the lead. He was quickly shuffled off the lead on the restart and was touched by Kyle Petty in Turn 4. Four other racers were also caught up in the mayhem.Leader Dale Earnhart was passed by Irvan when the green flag returned, after which he spent several laps battling Allison for second.Irvin retired from American stock car racing in 1999. He was named one of NASCAR’S 50 greatest drivers in 1998.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more
