Freshmen forward Emaly Vatne scored three of the eight goals in Thursday night’s win, recording the 15th hat trick in Ohio State history, scoring in the 41st, 68th and 73rd minutes against Morehead State. Vatne said she is most proud of her team’s professionalism on the field tonight. “We approached this game with a really good attitude,” Vatne said. “We didn’t let up in one moment of the game, so I think that’s something we should really be proud of.”In the 22nd minute, freshmen defender/midfielder Talani Barnett notched a goal from eight yards inside the right post, giving Ohio State the early lead. A minute later, freshmen forward Kayla Fischer found success by scoring a goal in the first half, recording her third goal of the year.

Shoji aware Lukaku is not the only threat in the Belgium

first_imgAhead of the last-16 clash between Japan and Belgium, defender Gen Shoji said he is up for the challenge and is well aware what exactly he needs to be prepared for.Even though Lukaku might be Shoji’s direct opponent in the fixture, he is not Belgium’s only attacking option. Eden Hazard and Dries Mertens are just some other names who could easily find the back of the net of Japan’s goal.“I do feel I will be faced with Lukaku quite a lot. In preparation of the match, I think I have to overcome him mentally,” Shoji said, according to FourFourTwo.“Yes, we are facing Belgium, a formidable foe, but I’d like to be mentally prepared.”Romelu Lukaku, Serie A, Inter MilanCapello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R.

His position, his play, we discussed for quite a long time. ”“He’s the only one who’s played as a goalkeeper in Europe. And he self-analysed his play very well.”last_img read more

Fred explains his adaptation to England

first_imgThe Manchester United footballer played in his native Brazil and in Ukraine, and this will be his first season in the English Premier LeagueFor Brazilian footballer, Fred, adapting to the English Premier League is not easy.But the Manchester United player is doing all he can to adapt quickly to his new competition and team.When asked about how his English is going, he said: “I managed to do some classes in Ukraine but people there didn’t really speak English. They spoke Russian so that’s what I learned there. I didn’t get to practice much English but now I’m here and I’m going to classes.”“I want to learn as quickly as possible because I know it will help me to integrate and adapt here. I already know a lot of sentences, many words – ‘How are you?’ I know how to communicate. I’m studying so hopefully I will be better in no time,” he said to the club’s official website.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“The first time I got a car it felt really different to drive on the opposite side. In other countries it’s different and here the ‘right’ side seems weird.”“On the first day when I arrived during pre-season, I went to the training ground and they left a car for me to drive to the hotel. I had to figure it out and learn. Now it’s okay, I’ve adapted to that and slowly I will adapt even more,” he commented.Would he give his younger self any advice?“I don’t think I would give any advice. When we are kids we live without thinking about the consequences. We do things our own way, we make mistakes but those are all lessons to learn. If, when I was I, child, I hadn’t done the right and wrong things I’ve done I wouldn’t be here today.”last_img read more

Settlement Near In Prison Heat Lawsuit

first_img Listen 00:00 /08:52 Michael HagertyThe Wallace Pack Unit, located about 70 northwest of Houston, near Navasota. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code:center_img Share X A class action lawsuit over heat in a Texas prison is likely to be settled after a federal court hearing Tuesday.Houston Chronicle reporter Gabrielle Banks tells Houston Matters the terms of the settlement would require temporary air conditioning units installed at the Wallace Pack Unit near Navasota be replaced by permanent units by May 2020, pending legislative approval. The settlement also resolves several wrongful death and wrongful injury lawsuits and awards $4.5 million to an Austin law firm for trying the case.The Chronicle also learned that Bryan Collier, the executive director of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice, has proposed creating 26 new definitions of at-risk inmates who are especially susceptible to extreme heat — such as those age 65 or older, or those with diabetes or heart conditions.The original class action lawsuit, filed in 2014, claimed hot conditions at the low-security, 1,400-bed prison of mostly geriatric inmates violated constitutional protections against cruel and unusual punishment.Tuesday’s proceeding is merely a fairness hearing, where any of the parties in the class action who had a complaint could make a statement in court. Since those parties are prison inmates, Banks says it could make for a chaotic day in court as they make statements via phone.Banks learned some other measures the prison system is taking that aren’t part of the settlement, including plans to relocate at-risk prisoners at 75 uncooled units to 29 prisons already equipped with air conditioning. Such a move could possibly be an effort to stave off future lawsuits from other prisoners, she said.The Texas prison system intends to make use of the 32,000 beds it already has in air conditioned cell blocks but might need additional fencing and other equipment to secure violent offenders. Completing such transfers could take years but would be cheaper than installing air conditioning to old prisons.Banks researched how many other states provide air conditioning for their inmates and how that compares to Texas. She found only five states that provide air conditioning to all state prisoners, while 21 others offer it to at least half their prisoners. Texas is among six states in the South that do not provide cooling for the majority of their state inmates.Banks says officials acknowledge 22 prisoners died from extreme indoor heat over 14 years in prisons from South Texas to Dallas. However, some human rights and health experts who visited Texas prisons estimated the actual number is much higher.last_img read more
