Pumas femenil dejó todo en la cancha y demostró que es un equipo de guerreras: Ileana Dávila

 

“Pumas cierra muy bien, es un equipo que vino de menos a más. Me voy muy satisfecha y contenta. Las chavas han dejado todo y han demostrado que son unas guerreras, que tengo un muy buen equipo, con muy poca experiencia, y (aún así) lo hicieron muy bien. Dimos un muy buen espectáculo, somos un equipo que les costó trabajo a los demás y fuimos de los menos goleados. Nosotras queremos ser campeonas, quisimos colarnos dentro de los dos primeros del grupo, no se pudo, pero vamos a trabajar para lograrlo”, afirmó Ileana Dávila, al término del encuentro en el que las felinas empataron sin goles con Morelia en el Estadio Morelos, en patido de la jornada 14 del torneo Apertura 2017 de la Liga MX Femenil, última del campeonato.

De esta manera, el conjunto universitario se despidió ubicándose en el cuarto puesto del grupo 1, con 21 unidades.

Rayados ‘ataja’ pase en Copa MX

 

Juan Pablo Carrizo se luce en serie de penales ante Leones Negros

 

En el futbol hay que saber aprovechar la oportunidad, y fue en esta ocasión Juan Pablo Carrizo quien se echó al Monterrey a los hombros para darle el pase a los Cuartos de Final de la Copa MX Apertura 2017.

 

Tras empatar 2-2 en los 90 minutos, el guardameta se convirtió en figura al atajar dos penales para darle a Rayados el boleto a la siguiente ronda, combinado con el tanto del triunfo de Alfonso González celebrado por los 34 mil 521 seguidores en el Estadio BBVA Bancomer.

 

El marcador se movió apenas comenzando el encuentro después de una jugada individual de Rogelio Funes quien dejó la mesa servida a ‘Poncho’ para que el mediocampista abriera el marcador al minuto 9′, pero Daniel Amador se encargó de poner el 1-1 al 31′ con un golazo.

 

La historia fue muy similar en el segundo tiempo ya que el tesón de Carlos Sánchez puso en ventaja a los albiazules con un zurdazo al 55′, pero nuevamente Amador emparejó la pizarra al 59′ para decretar la serie de pena máxima.

 

Ya desde los 11 pasos, ‘Carri’ fue factor al atajar los penaltis de Ismael Valadez y Jorge Padilla , además de la falla de Hibert Ruiz, combinado con la puntería de Dorlan Pabon, el propio ‘Pato’, Avilés Hurtado y nuevamente González para darle el triunfo 6-5 a los dirigidos por Antonio Mohamed en la tanda.

 

El camino del Monterrey en la Copa MX Apertura 2017 tiene como próxima parada el enfrentamiento ante Santos en Cuartos de Final, en donde el compromiso es seguir luchando por el Campeonato.

WHAT’S ON THE MINDS OF THE STARS OF UFC® FIGHT NIGHT: BRUNSON vs. MACHIDA?

Oct 28, 2017

WHAT’S ON THE MINDS OF THE STARS OF

UFC® FIGHT NIGHT: BRUNSON vs. MACHIDA?

 

Sao Paulo, Brazil – The Octagon® returns to Brazil for an astonishing 30th time in UFC history. UFC® FIGHT NIGHT: BRUNSON vs. MACHIDA takes place this Saturday, October 28 at Ginásio do Ibirapuera in Sao Paulo, with the return of former light heavyweight champion and middleweight title challenger Lyoto Machida. “The Dragon” will face No. 7 middleweight contender Derek Brunson. Here is what the fighters and other stars had to say ahead of their bouts:

 

Derek Brunson:

  • His expectations: “To arrive on Saturday and submit. I’m a first round guy. The perfect ending would be a victory in the first round. I see myself walking in the Octagon and waiting for my moment. I know everyone expects me to wrestle and for him to stay on his feet, but I feel comfortable in any area.”
  • On Lyoto’s return: “I don’t know how he is doing, I’m not sure. But I think of him as the Machida of always – fast and agile on his feet. I can’t think about the last fights, in which his opponents were able to take him down with ease.”
  • On the Brazilian fans: “Many Brazilians texted me in social media saying they would like to watch me fight, so I believe that I will have some support. But I don’t feel any pressure having the crowd against me. Once in the Octagon, it’s me against him. The fans can’t go in and help him. At least I think that’s illegal.”

Lyoto Machida:

  • Return to the Octagon: “I waited a long time to get back to the Octagon, it’s a moment I have been waiting for. I worked hard to get here and it’s what I like to do. It’s a dream come true to come back, I’m enjoying it all, from the little things – traveling, the media commitments, making weight, everything that is involved in fight week.”
  • Saturday’s fight: “I had a great camp. Many people think that the time off will be a problem for me. But I don’t see it that way. The time out helped me find different people and have a different outlook on everything. It was a maturing moment.”
  • On his opponent: “Brunson is a complete fighter, a guy who even though he is a wrestler, he is good in other disciplines, punching and kicking. But I think he will use his strength with is grappling and clinching.”
  • Fighting in home country: “It’s a unique opportunity for me. I am coming back, in my country, with the crowd on my side, everyone helping me. It’s a different environment. I am very happy.”

Demian Maia:

  • São Paulo: “It’s special. I didn’t get this opportunity many times in my career. I only fought in the city of Sao Paulo once and I would like to experience that more.”
  • Fighting after title shot: “My last three fights were very close. That is tiring, but at the same time it gives a good competitive pace. If you can use that in your favor, it can be advantageous. I accepted this fight for many reasons. The main one is to get back to winning, which is something I can’t control, but I can only get back if I try.”
  • Colby Covington and his trash talk: “I think he is going down the same path that everyone thinks is right nowadays, which is to be controversial as the only way to promote a fight. As a fighter, he is a great athlete, wrestler and, as with any UFC Top 10 fighter, he is a very tough guy. I think it will be an intense fight, because he is a very aggressive guy as I am, within my style.”

Colby Covington:

  • On fighting in Brazil: “I don’t want to fight here, but it was the only way to face Demian. Fighting in his home, in front of his fans. I know how Brazilians are and I hope they are very loud. But after the fight, I know they will be in silence.”
  • On his opponent: “He’s a legend, had a great career. That’s why I will retire him in the first round. And the Brazilian fans will thank me because he will be in my highlights until the end of my career. He is a one-trick pony and I will catch him when he tries to take me down, submitting in the first round.”
  • On the Welterweight Division: “I see myself as the uncrowned king of this division. This is my division. When Tyron Woodley comes back from his injury, his time will come. My victory over Demian will scare Woodley.”

Predictions: I think that a win will give me the chance to fight for the belt, since they are not having Robbie Lawler fight Woodley again, and Rafael dos Anjos shouldn’t be in this division – I would send him back to lightweight if I fought him.”

Pedro Munhoz:

  • Fight Expectations: “The best possible, I’m fighting before the co-main event, in Sao Paulo, my city, for the fourth year in a row in search of my fourth consecutive win. I think it will be a very special moment and a victory on Saturday will be a big step to get to the coveted title shot.”
  • On his opponent: “Rob is good, experience, ranked. I hope he brings his best, because I am bringing my best. I’ve seen him using different strategies in his fights, so I prepared for any situation – on my feet and on the ground. But my goal is to knockout or submit.”
  • On the Bantamweight Division: “It’s a stacked division, with many great athletes, especially the Brazilians. There are always new and capable athletes coming in. Today, I see the winner of Jimmie Rivera and Dominick Cruz fighting the champion. I think they will be two highly contested fights, but I see Cody and Jimmie winning and facing each other. I don’t want to think about my next fight, because I focus on one day at a time. But victory on Saturday, I believe would put me in 8th or 10th in the rankings.”

Rob Font

  • On his opponent: “He is a very aggressive striker and has very strong jiu-jitsu, but he doesn’t try to go the ground at all costs. He forces you to take him down and submits you.”
  • Fight expectations: “It will be a big fight, it was a great match. He is an exciting fighter and will be at home, in his city, with the crowd supporting him. The fans here are crazy, loud and they defend their fighters at any cost. This is my second time here, I love Brazil, I love the food and the culture.”

Ganar sí o sí en Rayados

Copa MX también es prioridad en el Monterrey

En vísperas de los Octavos de Final de la Copa MX Apertura 2017, el Monterrey tiene el compromiso de obtener el triunfo ante Leones Negros a como dé lugar para avanzar a la siguiente ronda.

  

Manteniendo altas expectativas en la doble competencia, Alfonso González espera un buen partido de Rayados frente a los de la UdeG en el Estadio BBVA Bancomer mostrando la misma intensidad característica.

“(Debemos) darle la importancia que se merece, ser bien conscientes que es un partido a eliminatoria directa que hay que ganar sí o sí. Saber que estamos en casa y acá es donde nos hacemos fuertes”, dijo en conferencia de prensa en el Centro de Entrenamiento BBVA Bancomer El Barrial.

“El Equipo viene haciendo las cosas muy bien. En lo general, todo el torneo lo hemos hecho muy bien. (Hay que) seguir con esa actitud y las ganas. Viene la Copa (MX), pensar en el partido de mañana que es de vida o muerte y jugar así los partidos que sean”, expresó.

EL EQUIPO ESTÁ EN ASCENSO: JOSECARLOS VAN RANKIN

 

“El equipo viene en ascenso, mejorando muchas cosas, como la garra puma y estar muy ordenados en el terreno de juego. Creo que la confianza se perdió un poco individual y colectivamente, pero la llegada de Patiño nos vino muy bien porque es un entrenador que conoce al equipo y supo inyectarnos lo que nos faltaba para mejorar los partidos”, declaró Josecarlos Van Rankin este martes en conferencia de prensa, realizada en las instalaciones de la Cantera al término del entrenamiento del primer equipo auriazul.

El defensa lateral derecho añadió: “Se ha visto una mejoría en los últimos tres partidos. El buen momento que estamos teniendo pasa por la decisión de hacer las cosas y la confianza de que van a salir. Monterrey nos ganó por circunstancias del futbol, pero el equipo se plantó bien, fue agresivo, aunque es difícil jugarle así al líder del torneo. Estuvimos ordenados tácticamente y supimos tener posesión de balón a pesar de que es uno de los equipos que más presionan”.

Y dijo que buscarán imponerse al Puebla en su siguiente compromiso: “Tenemos que ganar este juego y vamos a ir a proponer el partido. Pumas debe pensar en ganar los tres últimos partidos, ya que no puede quedar hasta abajo en la tabla (de posiciones). Debemos buscar ganar los últimos nueve puntos que nos quedan. Esta liga es muy competitiva y cualquier equipo te puede sacar un buen resultado, pero lo importante es concentrarnos en nosotros para seguir por esta línea de trabajo”, concluyó.
