Gators hold on to beat East Carolina

first_imgFlorida tight end DeAndre Goolsby (30) runs past East Carolina nose tackle Mike Myers (92) and defensive back Terrell Richardson (22) for a touchdown on a 32-yard pass play Saturday night.Florida tight end DeAndre Goolsby (30) runs past East Carolina nose tackle Mike Myers (92) and defensive back Terrell Richardson (22) for a touchdown on a 32-yard pass play Saturday night.GAINESVILLE — Florida needed another defensive play in the final seconds to beat East Carolina.Will Grier threw two touchdown passes, Jalen Tabor returned an interception for a score and the Gators held on to edge the Pirates 31-24 on Saturday night.The Gators (2-0) secured the win when quarterback Blake Kemp fumbled at the Florida 25, and Alex McCalister recovered it with 12 seconds left.McCalister probably could have scored, but teammate Jarrad Davis tackled him near midfield to prevent a fumble.Florida needed a late interception to beat East Carolina in the Birmingham Bowl in January.The Gators trailed 17-14 late in the third quarter in this one when Tabor stepped in front of Kemp’s sideline pass and went untouched the other way for 39 yards and his first score. That provided some much-needed breathing room for an offense that never really got into rhythm against the Pirates (1-1).A week after totaling 61 points and 606 yards against overmatched New Mexico State, Florida looked far from polished in bowl rematch.The Gators managed 373 yards, converted 4 of 13 third-down attempts, committed 12 penalties for 105 yards, missed two field goals and had two turnovers.And it’s unclear whether coach Jim McElwain’s team even settled its quarterback competition. Grier got the start and looked sharper than Treon Harris, but Harris was back on the field in the fourth quarter.Harris finished 5-of-8 passing for 54 yards. He directed a 75-yard drive in the fourth that ended with Kelvin Taylor’s 7-yard touchdown run.Grier completed 10 of 17 passes for 151 yards, with two touchdowns and an interception. The pick wasn’t his fault. His pass hit Alvin Bailey in stride, but Bailey bobbled it as he went to the ground, and the ball bounced up and into Bobby Fulp’s hands.Kemp found Isaiah Jones on the next play for a 27-yard score, giving East Carolina a 14-10 lead. Kemp’s third TD pass of the night cut Florida’s lead to 31-24 with 3:04 remaining.But the Gators responded — with defense.This one had a throwback feel. The Gators wore an all-orange uniform combination for the first time since 1989. The sluggish offense and sloppy play also looked a little like the one that defined the Will Muschamp era.East Carolina’s only other points came on the opening drive. Kemp completed all five of his passes for 73 yards, including a 31-yarder to Davon Grayson for the score.Grayson caught the well-placed pass over Quincy Wilson, who was filling in for injured All-American cornerback Vernon Hargreaves III.The Gators ruled Hargreaves out about a half hour before kickoff, saying the junior “tweaked a leg injury Thursday during practice.” Hargreaves showed no problems in pre-game warmups. He didn’t wear a knee brace and even danced around during drills.But Florida wanted to be cautious with its best defensive player, especially with the first of eight consecutive Southeastern Conference games beginning next week at Kentucky.last_img read more

Chelsea and QPR legend Sexton dies

first_imgLegendary former Chelsea and QPR manager Dave Sexton has died, aged 82.Sexton led Chelsea to their famous FA Cup triumph in 1970 and to the European Cup Winners’ Cup the following year.And at QPR he managed the club’s best ever team – the 1975/76 side that included the likes of Gerry Francis and Stan Bowles and missed out on the league title by one point.AdChoices广告He also managed Manchester United and had two spells in charge of the England Under-21s.Sexton was appointed as Chelsea boss in 1967 and spent seven years at the helm.He was later reunited with Blues stalwarts Dave Webb and John Hollins at QPR, where he took over from Gordon Jago in 1974.Both players were instrumental as Rangers so nearly became champions and as they starred in the Uefa Cup the following season.After a four-year spell at United, he spent 13 years as England Under-21 boss – a job he returned to in the mid-1990s.In 2005, Sexton was awarded an OBE for his services to football.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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

WATCH: Practice abandoned after drain cover wrecks Williams car!

first_imgOpening practice for the Azerbaijan Grand Prix was abandoned on Friday because of safety concerns after a loose drain cover caused serious damage to George Russell’s Williams car.Only two cars had clocked lap times in the opening minutes before Briton Russell, at high speed, ran over a cover, which had been lifted slightly by a previous car, and suffered impact damage to the floor which sent debris across the circuit.Russell was forced to stop, his car badly damaged. He was unhurt, but with more than 300 similar drain covers around the circuit, the race stewards elected to abandon the session to ensure they were all welded down in position.As Russell’s car was taken back to the pits, the rescue truck hit a bridge.This collision resulted in damage to the vehicle’s on-board crane which, in turn, then released a flow of hydraulic fluid onto the engine cover of the Englishman’s car.This required another vehicle to rescue the car as the early minutes of the opening session descended into near-farce.Ferrari new boy Charles Leclerc had set the quickest of the opening laps in one minute and 47.497 seconds.The session was soon cancelled officially to allow for the local track organisers to check and repair the circuit.It was wretched luck for Russell, in only his fourth Grand Prix with the struggling Williams team.He said: “I got the biggest smack through my body, and the whole engine turned off.“It’s ruined the floor and I’m a bit worried for the chassis now. We were on the normal racing line and it’s completely ruined our session. It’s not what we need at this stage.”Williams deputy team chief Claire Williams said: “It’s clearly not what we want and it’s not what you expect from a Formula One track. These drain covers are supposed to be bolted down.“That’s just not acceptable. The damage could put us out for the afternoon. We have another chassis that we might need to bring in, but it should not be like this on any F1 track. These manholes should be welded down.”For more sport your way, download The Citizen’s app for iOS and Android.last_img read more
