Liverpool fall 2-1 to Sevilla in Fenway friendly

first_imgNolito’s powerful shot in the 37th minute past Liverpool starting goalkeeper Andy Lonergan — who was at Middlesbrough last season — was Sevilla’s reward after a half-hour of pressure.It needed a sprawling save from Lonergan in the 13th minute to deny Luuk de Jong after Liverpool lost possession in their own territory and de Jong was just wide with a header in the 23rd.– ‘Not too cool’ –Liverpool’s equalizer came off a scrappy set piece as Trent Alexander-Arnold’s corner was kept alive by Nat Phillips, the ball falling to an unmarked Divock Origi who swept in from close range in the 44th.Both teams made wholesale changes at halftime, but even a match that was just one more step in both team’s pre-season preparations there was nothing laid back about Sevilla.A foul was called on Ever Banega for a hard tackle in the 12th minute and when he slammed the ball to the ground in protest he was shown a yellow card.Liverpool midfielder Harry Wilson took a smack to the face just before halftime — an infraction that paled in comparison to that of Gnagnon — who was arguing with the referee as Larouci received treatment.“Harry got a knock on his jaw and a finger in his eye, so not too cool,” Klopp said. “He should be OK as well but couldn’t carry on as well.”Share on: WhatsApp LiverpoolNew York, United States | AFP | Alejandro Pozo delivered the late dagger in 10-man Sevilla’s 2-1 friendly win over Liverpool in Boston Sunday, a defeat made worse for the European champions when they saw Yasser Larouci stretchered off.Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp was furious at Joris Gagnon’s outrageous kick at an on-rushing Larouci in the 76th minute. Gnagnon was shown a straight red card after sweeping one of the Frenchman’s legs out from underneath him, toppling him to the pitch where his head bounced hard on the ground.“(It’s) much too early in the season to create headlines with saying the things I think about the situation,” Klopp said at his post-match press conference, where he added that it appeared that the 18-year-old Larouci was “lucky” in terms of avoiding serious injury.“But of course, how it always is with these things we have to wait a little bit. I don’t know 100 percent. It looks like he was lucky but I only spoke quickly to the Doc and that’s what he said, but we have to see.”Even with the La Liga outfit reduced to 10 men, Liverpool were unable find a way ahead, and Pozo sealed it in the 90th minute as he smoothly collected a pass from Munir El Haddadi, rounded Liverpool keeper Simon Mignolet and knocked the winner into an unguarded net.Sevilla had enjoyed by far the majority of scoring chances on a sweltering evening at Fenway Park — home of the World Series Champion Boston Red Sox. Both Liverpool and the Red Sox are owned by groups led by John W. Henry.Players were granted water breaks in the hot, humid conditions, and even the pitch created on the baseball diamond received extra water during the match.The pro-Liverpool crowd weren’t treated to many of the club’s stars as Brazilian internationals Roberto Firmino and Alisson were both absent for the Reds following their Copa America campaign along with Mohamed Salah and Sadio Mane, both missing due to the African Cup of Nations.As in a 3-2 defeat to Borussia Dortmund on Friday in Indiana, there was some shaky defending from Liverpool.last_img read more

Schenley beats Oliver in double overtime thriller

first_imgSchenley will play Punxsutawney in a PIAA (Pennsylvania Interscholastic Athletic Association) Class AAA play-in round matchup at Dubois, Pa., Nov. 20 at 7 p.m.“We’re going to try to use our speed up there,” said Bell. “We have our big play guys in Jerome Mathews and DeAndre Black. With their skills and speed, I’m confident that they will make some things happen for us.”In the second overtime, Black scored on a fourth-and-four in the second overtime to strike a scare to the stout Oliver defense and Jackson tacked on the two point conversion. On the ensuing possession, Donte Jeter found Tyree Mathis on their second touchdown hookup of the game from 13 yards out to make things really interesting.However, Mathis went up the middle on the following two-point conversion attempt and it appeared that he’d successfully crossed the goal line when the officials ruled it a free ball. Both teams struggled for the recovery until the ball squirted out of the back of the end zone, signifying a Schenley victory.The Spartan’s celebration was intense, to say the least.“This is an amazing feeling,” said Schenley’s senior lineman Hykeem Moore. “I am so proud of our team. This is an accomplishment that’s way over due. Most of our seniors have played together since junior varsity and we become very close, just like best friends.”Others had things to say about the tight knit nature of this team that led them to this point.“I am very pleased with this year’s team,” said Schenley’s Jamal Walter. “We have worked hard for four years and it has finally happened. We come really far and we’ve done so together.”Schenley beat Oliver by the score of 6-0 in their previous outing. They would go into this game expecting to have a similar outcome as they featured the two stingiest defenses in the league.Among other surprises, senior running back Mathews had one of his quietest games of the season for the Spartans. Suffering from cramps and eventually leaving the game, Mathews only carried the ball eight times for eight yards. That would, of course, include an 11-yard screen pass that he grabbed from quarterback Darren Jackson for the first score of the game. In Mathews’ absence, Jeron Grayson would fill in nicely, helping the team with a 29-yard touchdown rush in the second quarter.On the other hand, running back Martise Smith of Oliver had one of his better performances of the year as he caught three passes for 141 yards. One of which was a 74-yard touchdown pass from Jeter.   Mathis would add rushing scores of six and two yards for the Bears. Jeter would finish with six completions for 16 yards for 160 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions through the air.(Follow our continuing coverage of City League sports and add your comments at newpittsburghcourieronline.com.

See page C-4 for story and more photos. It was the biggest game of the year and it, rightfully so, had the biggest finish. The Schenley Spartans outlasted Oliver, 34-32, in a double OT marathon to take their second title since 1950.“It’s good for the kids,” said Schenley’s head coach Jason Bell. “When we were in the stretch run, especially in the double overtime, the team wasn’t nervous at all. It was by far our worst performance of the season but our guys came through beautifully.”last_img read more
