Roma beats Sampdoria 4-0 to reach Italian Cup quarterfinals

ROME (AP) — Roma is on course to face city rival Lazio in the Italian Cup semifinals after easing past Sampdoria 4-0 in the round of 16 on Thursday. It next faces second-division Cesena, which has already seen off two Serie A sides in Empoli and Sassuolo, while Lazio visits Inter Milan in its quarterfinal. Roma survived an early scare as Luis Muriel hit the post in the third minute for Sampdoria. The home side also hit the woodwork, with Leandro Paredes' volley crashing off the underside of the crossbar before bouncing just the wrong side of the line in the 25th. Roma broke the deadlock six minutes from time with an absolute stunner from Radja Nainggolan, who volleyed a poor clearance into the top right corner from 25 yards. On the bench, Francesco Totti swung his scarf around his head in celebration. Stephan El Shaarawy missed a couple of chances at the end of the first half but he set up Roma's second shortly after the restart with a deft chipped pass for Edin Dzeko. Dzeko returned the favor on the hour mark with a 40-yard pass, which El Shaarawy controlled before lobbing Sampdoria goalkeeper Christian Puggioni. Samp had the ball in the net but Patrik Schick's effort was ruled out for offside, and Nainggolan headed in Diego Perotti's cross in the 89th for his first double for Roma. .....»»

FA Cup: Allardyce's Palace wins; 2 non-league teams through

LONDON (AP) — Sam Allardyce secured his first victory as Crystal Palace manager by reaching the fourth round of the FA Cup on Tuesday when two non-league teams also advanced. Palace fell behind to third-tier side Bolton but two goals from substitute Christian Benteke clinched a 2-1 victory for Allardyce against the team he managed between 1999 and 2007. It ended Allardyce's five-match winless streak with Palace in all competitions. Palace will next host Manchester City in the FA Cup, but more important for Allardyce is producing a win in the league. Palace is only out of the Premier League relegation zone due to its superior goal difference. ___ BURNLEY 2, SUNDERLAND 0 Sunderland, which is next from last in the Premier League, found no respite in the cup in this all top-flight meeting. A header from Sam Vokes before halftime was followed late in the game at Turf Moor by substitute Andre Gray's strike. ___ NON-LEAGUE GLORY Lincoln and Sutton, who play in the fifth tier, will both face second-tier League Championship sides in the fourth round later this month. Lincoln stunned Championship side Ipswich with a stoppage-time goal from Nathan Arnold securing a 1-0 win to set up a meeting with Brighton. Sutton knocked out 10-man AFC Wimbledon with a 3-1 victory to secure a match against Leeds. .....»»

Texans couldn't avoid mistakes in 34-16 loss to Patriots

JIMMY GOLEN, AP Sports Writer br /> FOXBOROUGH, Massachusetts (AP) — Jadeveon Clowney arrived at his stall in the visitors' locker room on Saturday night to find a swarm of reporters talking to fellow defensive lineman — and former Patriot — Vince Wilfork next door. 'Excuse me!' Clowney shouted, over and over again, unable to get a television camera to move out of his way before he uttered an expletive and found another place to change out of the uniform he won't need any more this season. It was that kind of a day for the Texans, who made their presence felt but couldn't stop New England from winning 34-16 to advance to the AFC championship game for the sixth straight year. 'We held our own for a while,' Houston offensive lineman Duane Brown said, noting that the Texans trailed by four points at halftime and eight heading into the fourth quarter. 'We had a lot of self-inflicted mistakes that cost us.' Brock Osweiler threw three interceptions , the defense allowed Tom Brady to throw for 287 yards on a night he was picked off twice, and the Patriots also scored on a 98-yard kickoff return to move one win from their seventh Super Bowl appearance since 2001. The Texans return to Houston with an AFC South title and a first-round victory over Oakland but also a measure of how far they have to go to compete with the conference's best. 'Any time you don't end your season with a Super Bowl championship, you're going to be disappointed. And I'm certainly disappointed,' Osweiler said. 'The one thing I will say is that I think it's easy to point out the negative, especially on offense, of what has taken place this year. But I think there was also a lot of great things that took place that we can certainly build on in the future.' Houston coach Bill O'Brien said after the game that he had no intention of leaving, despite rumors that he is at odds with management. 'I'll be back next season. I'll be the Texans coach. I have a five-year contract. This is Year 3,' he said. 'But, like I've also said, I've got to do a better job. ... It starts with me. I don't point fingers; I look in the mirror. I look right, square in the mirror.' The Texans sacked Brady twice, with Clowney hitting him several times — always a bit too late, and once drawing a flag for roughing the passer. Brady's two interceptions were as many as he threw all season. 'That was the game plan going in, to try to hit him as much as possible,' defensive end Christian Covington said. 'At the end of the day, it didn't count for anything.' Wilfork, 35, had openly discussed retirement and received a farewell cheer from the opposing fans when he was shown on the scoreboard in the final seconds. He responded with a wave, then struggled to get off the field as one Patriot after another came to wish him well. But afterward, Wilfork said he hadn't decided yet whether he was done. 'I will take my time and think about it. I think I have played my last NFL football game,' he said. 'It doesn't change the fact that I enjoyed every bit of my career.' Wilfork spent 11 years in New England and the last two in Houston. He won two Super Bowls with the Patriots and made the playoffs in all but one season of his career. Asked if it was a special moment to get a going-away cheer from the Patriots fans, he said, 'It's never special to lose.' .....»»

LVPI to announce national team coaches on Friday

Larong Volleyball sa Pilipinas, Inc. could be leaning towards tapping Sammy Acaylar and Francis Vicente to handle the national teams that will see action in the 29th Southeast Asian Games in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The two coaches out of the 23 names in the associations shortlist of mentors presented solid programs for the national squad when they sat down with LVPI acting president Peter Cayco. “Both of them showed their commitment and presented a very good training program for the national team,” said Cayco, who with the association is looking forward for a better showing for the national team in the biennial meet from August 19 to 31. Cayco together with Jeff Tamayo and Rod Roque of the three-man search committee will forward their recommendation to the LVPI board of trustees, which will then make the formal announcement on Friday. “We already have the decision but we don’t want to preempt the LVPI board. We will forward our decision to the LVPI board,” Cayco said.         The chosen head coaches will then be tasked to form a 16-man pool each for the men’s and women’s teams. Acaylar led Altas back on top of the NCAA in Season 91 and was a part of the coaching staff of the national women’s team that won the country’s last gold medal in the SEA Games and was the head coach of the national squad that saw action in 2015 Asian Women's Seniors Volleyball Championship. Vicente, meanwhile, handled the national youth team in a couple of international stints last year. Aside from the two, other coaches in the shortlist are Ateneo coach Oliver Almadro, who handled the men’s national team in the Singapore SEA Games two years ago, Macky Carino of defending NCAA women’s volleyball champion College of St. Benilde and Obet Javier of NCAA Season 90 titlist Arellano University. Also included are Lerma Giron, Mac Gepuela, Marcelo Joaquin, Jason Gabales, Michael Inoferio, Bryan Esquibel, Raymund Castillo, Jeremiah Barrica, Raplh Dablo, Leovimo Rivera, Michael Santos, Roberto Javier, Carl Bryan Vitus, Richard Estacio, Ruel Pascual, Leonardo Toyco, Benjamin Mape, Michael Carino, Dexter Clamor and Alvin Dumalaog. De La Salle women’s team head coach Ramil De Jesus and University of Sto. Tomas’ Kungfu Reyes declined the invitation because of various reasons but promised to help out and give their support if needed.         --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles        .....»»

Watson and Clemson dethrone top-ranked Tide, 35-31

div>RALPH D. RUSSO, AP College Football Writer /div> div>  /div> div>TAMPA, Florida (AP) — College football's first national championship rematch was even better than the original, with an incredible twist at the end. /div> div>  /div> div>Deshaun Watson and Clemson dethroned the champs and became the first team to beat Nick Saban's Alabama dynasty in a national title game, taking down the top-ranked Crimson Tide 35-31 Monday night in the College Football Playoff. /div> div>  /div> div>Watson found Hunter Renfrow for a 2-yard touchdown pass with a second remaining to give the Tigers their first national championship since 1981. A year after Alabama won its fourth title under Saban with a 45-40 classic in Arizona, Clemson closed the deal and denied the Tide an unprecedented fifth championship in eight seasons. /div> div>  /div> div>The lead changed hands three times in the fourth quarter, but Watson got the ball last. Likely playing in his final college game, the junior quarterback threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns. In two games against Alabama and the most ferocious defense in college football, Watson has thrown for 825 yards and accounted for eight touchdowns. /div> div>  /div> div>Coach Dabo Swinney, the native Alabaman and former Crimson Tide walk-on receiver, has built an elite program at Clemson that was missing only one thing. Now the Tigers can check that box, too. /div> div>  /div> div>'Eight years ago we set out to put Clemson back on top,' said Swinney, who can turn postgame interviews into a rousing sermon. 'We came up a little short last year, but today on top of the mountain, the Clemson flag is flying.' /div> div>  /div> div>After three quarters of vicious hits and tight defense, Tigers-Tide II ended up looking a lot like the first meeting when the teams combined for 40 points in the fourth quarter. /div> div>  /div> div>Clemson took its first lead when Watson found Mike Williams for a 4-yard touchdown a minute into the fourth quarter to make it 24-21. /div> div>  /div> div>The Tigers took a 28-24 lead with 4:38 left in the fourth quarter when Wayne Gallman surged in from a yard out. /div> div>  /div> div>The Tide's offense, which had gone dormant for most of the second half, came to life with the help of a sweet call from newly promoted offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. Receiver ArDarius Stewart took a backward pass from Jalen Hurts and fired a strike to O.J. Howard for 24 yards. /div> div>  /div> div>On the next play, Hurts broke free from a collapsing pocket and weaved his way through defenders for a 30-yard touchdown run to make it 31-28 with 2:07 left. /div> div>  /div> div>More than enough time for Watson. /div> div>  /div> div>'I was calm,' Watson said. He said he thought about Vince Young's last-second touchdown for Texas that derailed the Southern California's championship run in the 2005 championship game at the Rose Bowl. He told his team: 'Let's go be great.' /div> div>  /div> div>Watson hooked up with Williams and Jordan Leggett, who made great catches for big gains to get to first-and-goal with 14 seconds left. /div> div>  /div> div>A pass interference on Alabama made it first-and-goal at the 2 with six seconds left. Time for one more play to avoid a game-tying kick and potential overtime. Renfrow slipped away from the defense at the goal line and was alone for an easy toss. It was the walk-on receiver's second TD catch of the night, adding to the two he had last season against Alabama. /div> div>  /div> div>When it ended, Clemson's 315-pound (143 -kilogram) defensive lineman Christian Wilkins did a cartwheel and Ben Boulware, one of the toughest linebackers in the country, was in tears. /div> div>  /div> div>The Tigers had snapped Alabama's 26-game winning streak and beaten a No. 1 team for the first time ever. /div> div>  /div> div>'It's been 35 long years!' Boulware screamed. 'It's coming home baby! It's coming home!' /div>.....»»
