The Demons will take on the winner of that matchup at 4 p.m. Caleb Ricca then singled down the left field line to plate Kunert, stole second, and scored on a Peyton Davis RBI single to push the lead to 5-1 NSU. Maddox made way for left-hander Tyler Pigott at the bottom of the eighth, finishing with 123 pitches, six strikeouts and just four hits. Pigott promptly retired the Lions before the Demons headed to the ninth looking for their first run. An RBI single to right field from Drew Avans plated Cody Grosse for a 1-0 Lions lead at the bottom of the first but left three on to end the inning. Southeastern left the bases loaded again to end the third, still holding a 1-0 advantage. Southeastern pitcher Bryce Tassin finally escaped the inning which saw him give up three earned runs on four hits against five batters. Northwestern State then registered base hits in five straight at-bats, one for an RBI single and one to put a runner on second before Lenni Kunert singled through the right side. He ended up advancing to third on an errant throw which advanced Larson Fontenot home along with Luke Watson for a 3-1 Demon lead.center_img Box Score | Photo Gallery | Tournament HomepageSUGAR LAND, Texas – For the first time since 2004, the No. 3 Northwestern State Demons are 2-0 to open the Southland Conference Baseball Tournament, doing so in dominant fashion with a 5-1 win over No. 2 Southeastern Louisiana.

‘It’s nice competition!’ – Vardy tells talkSPORT of England’s striking options

first_img 1 His rise has been quick, but he admits he has not had time to consider his achievements this season.“No, not really. I just think at the end of the day things that happen the way they do is meant to happen. So the season was obviously meant to be and it’s time to see if this tournament’s meant to be.“[On the tournament so far] we were unlucky to concede late on against Russia and the flipside was against Wales when we nicked it at the end.“We were [always] confident – there was a lot of positives to take from the first game and the second game we thought we dominated and were unlucky to be down at half-time. There’s loads and loads of positives and not that many negatives. So the confidence is high and we’ll take it into the next game now.”Vardy was asked about the difference between his on-field and off-field personality, he responded: “That’s a toughie!“I’d say they are both similar…it’s just in person I can be more chilled out with family and stuff, to absolutely mellow out.“As soon as I get on the pitch, I’ve got to be pumped up and ready to go – I’m not the biggest lad so I need to be quite aggressive! I love it, as soon as I get out on the pitch I want to put in a good performance in for the team and it’s what I’ll always do.”Vardy made headlines this week when he was reportedly spotted wearing nicotine patches and drinking an energy drink.When asked about his dietary habits being discussed in the media, Vardy added: “It’s a strange one – I didn’t get a nice sleep one night so thought I’d have a can of Red Bull to wake me up! That’s all any normal person would do I’m sure.“LIVE on talkSPORT: Slovakia v England – June 20, 8pm kick-offLIVE on talkSPORT2: Russia v Wales – June 20, 8pm kick-off Euro 2016: Every Goal, Every Game, Every Day on talkSPORTJamie Vardy says the competition for places in England’s Euro 2016 squad can only be a good thing for Roy Hodgson.The Three Lions boss raised eyebrows when he named five strikers in his final 23-man squad for the France tournament – Vardy, Wayne Rooney, Daniel Sturridge, Harry Kane and Marcus Rashford.All of the forwards have featured so far, with Leicester City’s Vardy, Liverpool’s Sturridge and Manchester United’s Rashford coming on to help England to victory against Wales on Thursday.Kane – last season’s top scorer in the Premier League – has started both games as the lone striker, but the performance of others has now given Hodgson a selection headache.Ahead of England’s Group B finale on Monday, Vardy told talkSPORT’s Nigel Adderley: “I wouldn’t say it’s a rivalry – it’s just nice competition.“I think it makes everyone want to try that little bit more and if you get that extra 1% out of them then it’s going to add up and only benefit the team.“It’s always good to have something different if the boss needs to change things up. The competition is good and we will wait and see.“[On criticism of Kane and Raheem Sterling] a lot of people say it might have been tiredness, this and that. We don’t see it like that when we see them training every day. They put the same effort in as everyone else.“The gaffer will pick the best XI he’ll think can go out and get the points and we’ll try do exactly that.”LIVE on talkSPORT: Slovakia v England – June 20, 8pm kick-offVardy’s second-half strike for England against the Welsh contributes to his amazing campaign with Leicester City, where he scored 24 times and laid on eight assists as Claudio Ranieri’s men were crowned Premier League champions.last_img read more

TiVo narrows its quarterly losses

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! SAN JOSE – As it struggled to gain new subscribers, TiVo Inc., the maker of the popular set-top digital video recorder, on Wednesday reported narrower fourth-quarter losses in line with Wall Street expectations. For the three months ended Jan. 31, the DVR pioneer said it lost $19.5 million, or 23 cents per share, compared to the year-ago loss of $33.7 million, or 42 cents a share. Revenue rose slightly to $60.1 million from $59.4 million in the quarter last year. Analysts were expecting the Alviso-based company to post revenue of $46.4 million, according to Thomson Financial. TiVo said it acquired 356,000 new subscribers in the fourth quarter, compared to 698,000 in the year-ago period. About 173,000 of those new accounts were from DirecTV satellite TV subscribers, instead of consumers who purchased TiVo’s stand-alone DVRs. But that long-running relationship with DirecTV is set to end next year as the satellite TV company switches to a different DVR platform. And the competition continues to heat up from other cable and satellite TV operators now offering their own DVR services – usually at lower prices. DVRs record shows onto a hard disk while allowing users to pause TV broadcasts and fast-forward past commercials. TiVo, which now has more than 4.4 million subscribers, has been adding new features and is expanding its service beyond set-top-boxes to cell phones and portable digital players to help differentiate itself. It also has a deal with Comcast Corp., though details of how the cable TV titan will incorporate TiVo’s technology into its services remains to be seen. A TiVo-based Comcast set-top-box is expected to be released in the second half of 2006. For the fiscal year, TiVo said it had a net loss of $34.4 million, or 41 cents a share, compared with a net loss of $79.8 million, or 99 cents a share in fiscal 2005. The company has pegged losses throughout most of its eight-year history, though it did break even on a per-share basis in its last fiscal second quarter. Shares of TiVo fell 10 cents, 1.7 percent, to close at $5.75 Wednesday on the Nasdaq Stock Market. The stock gained 15 cents in extended trading. last_img read more

RAPHOE AND ST.JOHNSTON TO UNVEIL PLAN TO BEAT BURGLARS TONIGHT

first_imgRural dwellers in a large stretch of townlands around the St. Johnston and Raphoe areas will tonight launch the latest stage of their community alert battle to beat burglars.Residents who are members of the Drumatoland, Castledooey, Sheskin and Momeen Community Alert Committee (DCSM) along with members of the neighbouring Binion View and Glenmaquinn Community Alert Committees have now launched a text alert schemes to help them report suspcious activity.Chairman of (DCSM) Joe Boland, said the alert system would help residents in the respective areas to be vigilant against any suspicious activities. “Unfortunately in all of our areas in recent years we have had residents who have been victims of break-ins and burglaries and it would seem that these thieves think that any quiet rural area is fair game.“By establishing our Community Alert Groups and indeed by extending co-operating across a number of groups, we will have even more people than ever watching for suspicious activity and will have a way of reporting that activity as well.”The new scheme is being launched in Ballylennon Church Hall tonight and present will be Garda Siochana Inspector David Kelly, local Gardai and Vanessa Clarke of Muintir na Tíre, the National Association for the Promotion of Community Development in Ireland.“The call will be assessed and if the Gardai deem it relevant, a text alert will be sent out to everyone who has signed up to the scheme in their area. We are confident that this scheme will send another message out to would-be burglars that we are mobilising our communities in association with the local Garda to be more vigilant than ever and that would be burglars have a much greater chance now of being apprehended if they think about coming into our areas,” Mr Boland concluded.  RAPHOE AND ST.JOHNSTON TO UNVEIL PLAN TO BEAT BURGLARS TONIGHT was last modified: October 21st, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:burglarsdonegalRaphoeSt Johnstontext alert schemelast_img read more
