Red Bulls midfielder Luquinhas has been voted Major League Soccer Player of the Week for week 15 of the 2022 MLS season, it was announced on Tuesday.

Luquin scored his fifth goal of the season on Saturday in the Red Bulls’ 2-0 victory over Toronto FC, which lifted them to second place in the Eastern Conference. His five goals are the second most for the Red Bulls this season and tied for the most by a midfielder in their first season in MLS. The Brazilian has scored or assisted in two-thirds of his starts (six of nine) and the Red Bulls are 4-1-1 in those games.

With the Red Bulls leading 1-0 in the 56th minute, the team played the ball intricately from defense to attack which saw forward Tom Barlow bounce off his effort saving on the Luquinhas road. The midfielder raced on the ball a few yards from the penalty area and neatly hit a one-time chip on a diving Toronto defender and goalkeeper for the game’s second goal (watch here).

Luquinhas is the second Red Bulls player to win MLS Player of the Week this year, joining Lewis Morgan in Week 2. Only the LA Galaxy and San Jose Earthquakes have won MLS Player of the Week honors. the week this season. He is the first Red Bull player to receive the honor in his first season in MLS since Luke Rodgers in 2011.

The Red Bulls will be looking to win back-to-back games when they face LAFC at Banc of California Stadium on Sunday, June 26 (3 p.m. ET, ABC/ESPN Deportes).

Before that, they will host New York City FC in the quarter-finals of the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup at Red Bull Arena on Wednesday at 8 p.m.

The MLS Player of the Week is selected each week of the regular season by media and fan voting in a process conducted by MLS Communications. A panel of journalists from the North American Soccer Reporters (NASR) comprises 75% of the vote, while a vote from Twitter fans accounts for the remaining 25%. NASR is made up of members from print, television, radio and online media.

SEOUL, South Korea — Australia’s win over Peru in the Intercontinental Qualifiers this week secured an unprecedented six Asian confederation teams at the World Cup, giving the continent an opportunity to repeat success from 2002 when it first hosted football’s premier event.

South Korea reached the semi-finals and Japan advanced to the round of 16 when they co-hosted the tournament in 2002, but Asia have underperformed at every edition since.

At the first World Cup in the Middle East, Europe, with 13, will be the only continent with more teams represented.

Hosting of Qatar from 21 Nov.-Dec. 18 tournament added to Asia’s usual four automatic qualifying spots occupied by Saudi Arabia, Japan, Iran and South Korea.

“It is indeed Asia time and there is no better way to mark this celebration than with the qualification of a record six teams for the FIFA World Cup for the first time in our history,” Asian Football Confederation President Sheikh Salman bin Ibrahim Al Khalifa said. . He hopes 2022 will show a marked improvement over Asia’s performance in 2018.

With just over five months to go, the signs are mixed.

Japan was shaping up to be the best hope. A narrow 1-0 home defeat to Brazil on June 6 was sandwiched between 4-1 wins over Paraguay and Ghana. But on Tuesday, Hajime Moriyasu’s men lost 3-0 at home to Tunisia.

“The result was disappointing,” said Moriyasu, but added that the friendlies gave him the opportunity to try out different formations. “It will help in the future and I will use it as a stepping stone to improve.”

Japan start and end Group E against Germany and Spain with the middle game against Costa Rica, who edged New Zealand on Tuesday for the last of 32 places in the draw for Qatar.

Saudi Arabia finished ahead of Japan and Australia in qualifying but lost earlier this month to Colombia and Venezuela, two South American teams that did not qualify. That leaves Saudi Arabia’s Group C opener against Argentina a bad omen.

“The players are tired after a long season and the coach (Hervé Renard) has tried different strategies and we hope to take advantage of them,” said Saudi FA president Yasser Al-Mishael. The Saudis plan to have six or seven more friendlies. “September training camp will be focused on correcting mistakes and preparing for the World Cup.”

Iran are set to play England, USA and Wales in Group B, but the team’s only game since qualifying was Algeria in Doha on Monday and ended in defeat 2-1. The Qatar team, who have never been to the World Cup before, haven’t seen much international action.

Australians have had their ups and downs. After winning 11 consecutive qualifying matches in the second round and the start of the third round of Asian qualifying, the Socceroos recorded just one victory in seven games to finish third in their group.

The Socceroos beat the United Arab Emirates 2-1 in the Asian qualifiers last week. Six days later at the same stadium in Qatar on Monday, the Socceroos qualified for a fifth straight World Cup after beating South America’s fifth-placed Peru 5-4 on penalties.

The reward is a place in Group D and games against defending champions France, Tunisia and Denmark.

South Korea, competing in a 10th consecutive World Cup, began their rise to prominence with a heavy 5-1 loss to Brazil in Seoul on June 2. The results improved as the Taeguk Warriors beat Chile 2-0, drew 2-2 with Paraguay and then went on to beat. Egypt 4-1.

The South Koreans, who beat Poland, Portugal, Italy and Spain on a remarkable run to the semi-finals on home soil in 2002, will play in Group H against Uruguay, Portugal and Ghana in Qatar.

“The biggest positive to take away is how the players reacted against Chile after the loss to Brazil and how they fought back 2-0 against Paraguay,” said South Korean coach Paulo Bento. “We still have work to do.”

Soccer Aid: Lee Mack scores winning penalty for the World XI

Jamie Carragher has finally decided that extreme times call for extreme measures after wiping out Usain Bolt.

The 100m world record holder has long spoken of his desire to play football at a competitive level, previously spending a spell with the A-League’s Central Coast Mariners. He leads the line for the World XI during the latest edition of Soccer Aid at the London Stadium.

Carragher is the man tasked with stopping the Jamaican legend and struggled early on to keep up with his pace, constantly made by the sprinter. This led to the former Liverpool man, who retired several years ago, mowing down Bolt to contain him.

Bolt has previously claimed he was not given a fair chance during his spell training in Australia which all but ended his hopes of succeeding as a footballer. He told Wide World of Sports: “I think I didn’t have a fair chance. I didn’t do it the way I wanted to, but it’s something I think I would have been Well.

“But it’s just one of those things that you miss out on and you just have to move on. I sometimes think about it that it didn’t work out the way I wanted it to because football is something I love. The fact that it didn’t work, I think about it, but like I said, it’s one of those things that you have to get past.

Bolt plays in the stadium where he said goodbye to athletics. The Jamaican last raced at the 2017 World Championships, looking to retain his crown. However, he was beaten by American Justin Gatlin, eventually finishing third.

In 2015, Bolt claimed he should be tried at Manchester United, the team he supports, to see if he could step in. He said: “In my mind, I think I should sue and see if they would say, ‘Okay, come in.’ or if they would say, ‘No, you’re no good.’ I think I would be good enough because I’m fit, I’m quick, I can control the ball and I understand all the plays.

So I think if I gave it a try, they’d be like, “You know what, here’s a five-year contract!” You’re 30, here’s a five-year contract. Let’s do it! »

Semi-finals class 3

Tabb 2, Charlottesville 1

Following Tabb’s loss in the Grade 3 men’s football semi-final a year ago, longtime coach Scott Kuhnle suggested his players “remember that feeling”, so they work for it. redeem it.

The Tigers did just that on Friday, rallying to beat Charlottesville 2-1 at Courtland High in the state semifinals. The 18-1 Tigers will contest a first state title since 1997 at 10 a.m. Saturday at Courtland Field.

Charlottesville (17-3-2) controlled the ball for much of the first half and took the lead eight minutes after Xavier Trager’s goal. The Tigers had one of their rare first-half chances as Garrett Aunapu slipped Ty Hefner’s cross into the right corner of the goal to level the game at 1 apiece.

“I thought we started slow, but their first goal woke us up,” Kuhnle said. “I don’t know if it’s because we play such a tough and grueling schedule, but I think it helped our fitness and we controlled the majority of possession in the second half.”

Austin Robertson capitalized on that advantage with a long run into the penalty area, where he was brought down by one of the Black Knights. Robertson converted the ensuing penalty with 22 minutes remaining to give the Tigers a 2-1 lead.

Charlottesville never really threatened that lead, as Michael Hackworth controlled the ball in midfield, where Andrew Fiocca dominated the balls in the air as usual. When the Tigers went into head protection mode in the final 13 minutes, Kyrillos Henin, Jacob Kimball, Jackson Shiflett and Noah Martin proved impenetrable.

“We were humbled last year, sent home with our tails between our legs, so stepping up and playing for the state title was our goal from day one,” Kuhnle said. “We wanted to prove ourselves and everyone did their part by working hard.”

Semi-finals class 3

Lafayette 4, Lord Botetourt 1

Brooke Potter scored her 37th and 38th goals of the season and Lexi King added another as the Rams (17-2) earned a berth in the program’s state championship opener.

Lord Botetourt cut the Rams’ lead to 2-1 before the 10th minute of the second half. But the Rams pushed the attack on the Cavaliers goal behind midfielder Walker, Sam Lynch and Emma Moyer.

Walker added the third goal. Potter, who got plenty of help up front from King and Posey Troy, added the fourth to make it 4-1.

The defense, led by Jasmin Piggott and Kira Moore, held the Cavaliers (20-4) in check from there. The Rams play for the state title at 12:30 p.m. Saturday at Courtland.

“We said from practice one that our goal was to play for a state championship,” Rams coach Kellie Ernst said. “They fought all the time and deserve to be there.”

Semi-finals class 2

Poquoson 2, Alleghany 1

Kayla Romine scored the game-winner for the Islanders with 2 minutes and 30 seconds left in second overtime, putting Poquoson in her first women’s soccer state championship game with victory Friday at Salem.

Poquoson coach Jeff Imgrund felt his side had the best scoring opportunities most of regulation time. However, the key game of the first 71 minutes was the save of goalkeeper Sydney McCarthy on a Mountaineers penalty (20-2-2).

“That save changed the game,” Imgrund said. “It gave Sydney confidence and it gave us momentum.”

The Islanders (9-10) fell behind with nine minutes left in regulation time on their own missed punt that the Mountaineers’ Kinley Eggleston put in goal. Poquoson responded with Skylar Brown’s goal off Quinn Sparkman’s corner kick, tying the game at 1 apiece with five minutes left in regulation time.

Imgrund believes the athleticism of players like Brown, a star of the Islanders’ 2020 state field hockey champion, has been key.

“We have players who excel in other sports, like field hockey and track and field, rather than year-round club soccer players,” he said. “They have to work harder, but I think that makes us a better team.

“That experience of playing in a state championship game for the first time in program history is something they will never forget.”

Class 4 semi-finals

Tuscarora 4, Smithfield 1

Smithfield’s maiden trip to a Class 4 women’s football semi-final ended in a 1-0 loss to Tuscarora at Riverbend High on Friday, but Nathan Jones did not consider the result a failure. Instead, the second-year Packers coach saw the tight result as a sign of better things to come.

“Nobody thought we had a chance, but the girls set their sights on the pitch and gave it their all,” Jones said. “They played at a high level in the Bay Rivers District and the State Tournament, and I’m proud of what they did and the season they had.”

While the Huskies (14-2) controlled the ball more often, the Packers (18-2) had a few good chances to take the lead in the first 60 minutes. Lydia Jones narrowly missed scoring from a Katie Lutz cross by a foot or two early in the game, before Kaitlyn Worrell made a good shot to create a shot that she missed high in the second half.

Meanwhile, the Packers’ defense, led by Emma Forbes – who cleared two potential goals off the line – and goaltender Sydney Schwartz (13 saves) was spectacular. Tuscarora broke through with a close goal in a scramble in the box with just under 20 minutes to go.

The Packers offense took a hit moments before when Region A Class 4 Player of the Year Lutz (30 goals, eight assists) left the field with an injury.

“Tuscarora had the best defense we’ve played all year and they’ve got a really good team,” Jones said. “But this game has shown that our girls buy into what we teach, so we will be back.

“I am sad for the elders, but they can be proud of the foundation and the legacy they have created. »

Semi-finals class 3

Christian Liberty 12, Lafayette 1

The Rams’ loss at Spotsylvania High marked the final outing for one of the most successful senior classes in program history.

Kevin Cole, Luke Hanson, Blake Townsend and Price Whitaker were all part of the Rams team that won the second state title in program history with the spectacular 9-8 victory over Riverside in the class final 4 2019. After losing the 2020 season to COVID-19, they helped lead the Rams to back-to-back Class 3 State Semifinals.

The end came quickly Friday as LCA hit for nine runs in the second inning. Losing pitcher Kevin Cole’s single to left field in the third inning led Tristan Hiestand for the Rams’ lone run.

Cole will play for Division III Rowan in New Jersey next year and Luke Hanson – a star on the 2019 state title rosters – has signed to play for Virginia. Whitaker led the Rams (17-8) with a .432 batting average, while Hanson pitched 7-1 and struck out 72 in 48⅓ innings.

“They were a hell of a group to coach and we as coaches were lucky to have them,” Rams coach Matt Mills said. “This team fought hard, worked hard and learned to deal with failure after losing a handful of games.

“They were resilient.”

Semi-finals class 3

New Kent 2, Fort Challenge 0

Morgan Berg threw one hit, striking out six, and Alline Alexander and Jess Taggart had two hits to lead the Trojans (23-1) into Saturday’s 11 a.m. championship game against Lord Botetourt at Spotsylvania High.

Six students from Wabash College have accepted scholarships to engage internationally. A total of nine Wabash men have been awarded international and postgraduate scholarships this academic year.

Three students, Jacques Boulais ’19, Ian Gale ’22 and Kwaku Sarpong ’22, have obtained internships in the teaching assistant program in France (TAPIF), while Chase Breaux ’24, Jacob Monninger ’24 and Caleb Peare ’24 received Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarships to study abroad.

Graduation number 2022


People often ask me: “Where did you do your JR? At Northwestern, students at the Medill School of Journalism spend a quarter doing their journalism residency at a newsroom or company that interests them. I’m often tempted to say something funny and pretentious like, “Oh, The New York Times, how about you?

But usually, I just remind them that I’m not studying journalism. I study history and have never taken a Medill course. Next year, I’ll be teaching in college—not becoming a journalist.

In fact, I had no intention of writing for The Daily when I arrived in September 2018. I was the editor of my high school newspaper and, although I liked it, I thought I I might be done with student journalism. But when I visited the activity lounge, I couldn’t pass the Daily table. The thing is, I love to write and edit.

So I wrote my name.

As I reflect on my time at the Daily – a tenure that included countless articles and several positions on the editorial board – I think of all that a history student, a future teacher and a person who has never not intend to become a journalist drew from this article.

First, The Daily cultivated my academic interest in sports and gender. This year I wrote a thesis on Toni Stone, Connie Morgan and Mamie Johnson, three black women who played professional baseball in the mid-1950s.

This thesis was born out of my work at the sports office of Le Quotidien. I joined the office my freshman year and spent my weekends covering softball and cross country. I loved telling the stories of female athletes who didn’t always get the recognition they deserved.

A few weeks into the term, Ella Brockway, then sports editor, asked me to write about Allyson Darragh, then director of baseball operations at NU. As I spoke with Darragh – and then with two other women from the athletic department – ​​I was captivated by the stories of women who excelled in male-dominated worlds. Although I didn’t realize it at the time, these articles sparked my interest in writing more about the intersection of sport and gender.

Second, The Daily allowed me to try new things and have fun. I have never covered sports, attended an NCAA media availability, or interviewed a college president, to name a few opportunities.

Every time I lost myself in the stress of it all—a 6 p.m. deadline here, a 2 a.m. bedtime there—I tried to remind myself that I loved writing for the paper. I enjoyed the pleasure of asking questions at press conferences or summing up an exciting football match in 500 words. I didn’t feel pressured to win awards or rack up awesome clips for journalism internships – I wrote because I had fun doing it and wanted to help keep the community informed.

I’m sharing all of this to show that you don’t have to be studying journalism, aspiring to be a journalist, or seeing your group of friends in the newsroom to have a rewarding experience at The Daily. You can come out of curiosity and stay for years.
