Trojans come out on top in shootout

first_imgAll things considered, Pete Carroll had no reason to complain with the end result of a win.But the defensive-minded coach sighed slightly when discussing his team giving up season highs in points and yards allowed.After the Trojans surged out to an early lead, USC and Oregon State swapped scores down the stretch in a shootout that left both defenses exhausted. A high-powered attack centered on a strong ground game pushed USC toward a 42-36 win against Oregon State on Saturday at the Coliseum.The Beavers were within striking range of the Trojans in the fourth quarter, but the USC offense converted two third-downs and wiped the final five minutes off the clock to secure the win.“This is a different game than we hoped to have,” Carroll said. “The offense carried us because we challenged them to win this game for us.”Senior running back Allen Bradford anchored the USC running game with a career-high 147 yards on 15 carries. With starter Joe McKnight sidelined with a hand injury, Bradford became the offense’s centerpiece. He plunged into the end zone from the 2-yard line and ripped off a 43-yard run in the third quarter for his second touchdown of the day.But even after redshirt junior wide receiver Damian Williams returned a punt 63 yards for a touchdown, the Beavers did not relent.A 1-yard touchdown run by Oregon State running back Jacquizz Rodgers drew the Beavers within six, but Oregon State couldn’t cut any deeper into the Trojans’ lead.“We really just ran out of time,” Oregon State quarterback Sean Canfield said. “At the end of the day, we just didn’t get enough big plays.”Canfield shredded the Trojans secondary for 329 yards and three touchdowns on 30-of-43 passing. After Rodgers was temporarily sidelined by an ankle injury in the third quarter, Canfield kept the Beavers offense alive by repeatedly finding his safety valves. His favorite target, tight end Joe Halahuni, reeled in nine catches for 127 yards.The diminutive Rodgers returned in the second-half to give the Beavers balance by rushing for 113 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries.“We schemed the run up really well and thought that was what they were going to come out and do, especially after last year,” said linebacker Chris Galippo. “They came out early and we shut the running game down, but then they got out on us in the passing game and the perimeter game.”The Beavers’ 36 points was the most allowed by a USC team in the Coliseum since 2005. For a USC defense that had frequently lifted a sluggish offense through the first half of the season, the role reversal came as somewhat of a surprise.“Letting up 36 points, you can lose a lot of games that way,” said senior safety Taylor Mays. “It’s disappointing, but we have confidence in what we can do.”Coming off a career game at Notre Dame, true freshman Matt Barkley had two touchdowns passing and ran the ball in for a score from the 1-yard line. The signal-caller’s second touchdown throw came in the second quarter when wide receiver Ronald Johnson made a diving catch in the end zone for his first score of the year.After missing the first five games of the season with a broken collarbone and contributing sparingly against Notre Dame, the junior said the highlight reel catch provided him with relief.“It felt like all the pressure was off me,” Johnson said. “It had been so long since I had gotten one, so it felt really good.”Barkley also threw two interceptions, including a fourth-quarter pick that set up the Beavers’ final scoring drive.Still in the thick of a Pac-10 title race with next week’s game against conference leader Oregon looming, the Trojans took solace in coming out of the night still poised to make a run for the league championship.“Every week in the Pac-10 is a dogfight,” Galippo said. “You have to be ready for teams that are trying to make their season by beating you.”last_img read more

On a roll in Russia, Mexico begs World Cup fans to behave

first_imgBut Mexico midfielder Marco Fabian was one of several players who warned against complacency.“We reached our first target and have beaten Germany, but we can’t sit back,” Fabian said. “Some consider us to be group favorites now, and that’s a compliment — but it’s one we shouldn’t believe. There are no favorites in this World Cup.”The Koreans, stung by their 1-0 defeat by Sweden, could reconsider their attacking 4-3-3 formation that provided little threat and handed space to their opponents.Midfielder Koo Ja-cheol, who plays at Bundesliga club Augsburg, said players were studying Mexico on their tablets and had identified Hernandez as the major threat.“Of course we are not ready to give up. Everyone put in so much effort to get here,” Koo said. “What we want is to turn fans’ disappointment into joy.”ADVERTISEMENT As traveling Mexican fans prepare to descend on this southern Russian city, players and the federation are imploring them not to repeat it at Saturday’s match, in messages on television and social media. The Group F game will be attended by South Korean President Moon Jae-in.The Mexicans have reached the last 16 in their six previous World Cups, and are on course to make it seven after beating Germany 1-0.

(AP Photo/Darko Bandic)ROSTOV-ON-DON, Russia — Mexico’s biggest worry at the World Cup may be its fans instead of its next opponent, struggling South Korea.The Mexican football federation was fined 10,000 Swiss francs ($10,000) and warned of further sanctions over a chant by supporters considered to be homophobic during the opening game against Germany. Fans in Mexico use the chant to insult opposing goalkeepers as they take a goal kick. Widely considered a slur, some argue there is no discriminatory intent.ADVERTISEMENT Bicol riders extend help to Taal evacuees Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
