Only supporters of the home team were allowed in the matches in Argentina to avoid fan violence.It wasn’t a full house, though, with 62,000 attending the match at the around 80,000-capacity stadium. There were empty sections behind both goals.“It’s difficult to talk about the fans right now,” Boca Juniors coach Guillermo Barros Schelotto said. “We couldn’t win the Copa for them. They endured a lot to come here from all different parts of the world. It was incredibly sad in the changing room. It hurts a lot for me not to win the Copa, especially because of the fans.”Quintero scored with a shot from the edge of the area after a well-coordinated attack past the Boca defense. Martinez allowed the celebrations to begin when he scored into an open net in the final seconds as Boca goalkeeper Esteban Andrada had gone to the opposite area to try to equalize on a corner.Just seconds earlier, Leonardo Jara had a chance to score for Boca and send the match into a penalty shootout, but his shot struck the post to the desperation of the team’s fans.Benedetto had opened the scoring with a beautiful goal on a counterattack in the 43rd.

Boca Juniors remained on six titles and missed a chance to tie Argentina’s Independiente as the competition’s most successful club.“River was the better team throughout the entire tournament,” said Matias Biscay, River’s assistant coach who replaced the suspended Marcelo Gallardo. “Our team played against the toughest opponents and knew how to overcome them. And in the final against our rival we were superior in both matches.”After reaching 1-1 after 90 minutes on Sunday, River went ahead when Juan Fernando Quintero scored four minutes into the second half of extra time, and Gonzalo “Pity” Martinez added a third goal in the final minutes of the high-profile match.Dario Benedetto had opened the scoring in normal time just before halftime for Boca, and Lucas Pratto equalized for River in the 67th.Boca had Wilmar Barrios sent off early in extra time and then had Fernando Gago leave the field near the end because of an injury.ADVERTISEMENT View comments

Following his team’s two-point victory against Miami Saturday afternoon, Louisville coach Rick Pitino expressed some concern for the way the Hurricanes handled a potentially-concussed player. In the first half of the contest, Cardinals’ senior forward Montrezl Harrell threw the basketball at the face of Miami center Tonye Jekiri. Harrell was given a Flagrant 1 after referees reviewed the play. The Louisville star said following the 55-53 victory the throw was not intentional, though Hurricanes’ coach Jim Larranaga disagreed. Jekeri, a starter for Miami, began the second half on the bench. Larranaga said after the game his player was suffering from severe headaches. Miami’s trainers originally believed the 7-foot big man had a concussion, before allowing him back into the game. Miami’s handling of Jekeri was troubling to Pitino. Here’s what the Louisville coach said during his post-game press conference, courtesy of the Courier-Journal:“Here’s the ironic thing: Coach Larranaga walked over to the officials, all the way over to the other side. I’ve never seen that. I wanted to know what (Larranaga said). The official says, ‘Well, he wanted to let me know that the big guy has a concussion on that play.’ I said, ‘What motive do you need to know that? He’s back in the game.’“So I called (Louisville football coach) Bobby Petrino — this is no joke — I said, ‘Get a hold of that Miami doctor because, in 15 minutes, a kid went from a concussion to playing and totally healthy.’ We’re sending a plane down to hire that doctor for football. We will never have a concussion ever again. He was back 3-4 minutes later. He walked all the way over there to tell him he had a concussion, then he was back in the game.”That’s a pretty direct calling out of Miami from Pitino. Concussions are obviously something that should be taken very seriously, but it’s impossible to know if the Hurricanes’ medical staff followed protocol or not. This likely won’t be the last we hear of this incident. [Courier-Journal]
Junior forward Tanner Lacyzinski (9) skates with the puck in the first period of game one during Ohio State’s hockey game vs. Michigan State on March 1. Ohio State won 5-1. Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternThe Ohio State men’s hockey team’s season is over after losing 2-0 in a low scoring game against Denver in the NCAA West Regional Semifinals.In what was one of the lowest scoring games of the season for the Buckeyes, Ohio State (20-11-5, 13-7-4 Big Ten), a No. 3 seed in the NCAA tournament, was not able to crack the defense of Denver (23-11-5), resulting in its third loss in a row and the end of its season. Ohio State’s head coach Steve Rohlik was upset after what he described as a disappointing end to the season.“We knew the team that’s good first was probably going to get the upper-hand and we certainly had our chances there and it just didn’t work out the way we wanted to,” Rohlik said.The turning point in the match came nearly 40 minutes after the puck drop, when Denver put the first point on the scoreboard with 39.5 seconds left in the second period on a goal by senior defenseman Les Lancaster. Despite Ohio State getting its fourth power play of the match in the third period, the Buckeyes still couldn’t find an opening in Denver’s defense. With 1:30 left in the game, the Buckeyes replaced their goalie with another skater in an attempt to tie the match up and go into overtime. Denver managed to win the faceoff, however, and scored the game-sealing goal with 58.3 seconds to go.Ohio State finished the game outshooting the Pioneers 24-13. Despite the loss, senior forward Mason Jobst was proud of the Buckeyes’ aggressive performance in the first period.“I think going into the game, obviously, we know the style that they were playing and we were playing was going to be mainly defensive and 0-0: that’s what we expected,” Jobst said. “We had the upper hand in shots and we were keeping things simple. After [the first period] I thought we were feeling pretty good.”Senior defenseman Sasha Larocque said it was difficult to comprehend this being his final game in an Ohio State uniform.“We played that Carmen song after every game for the last four years so it was a little bit of a goodbye,” Larocque said. “It’s tough to accept that the best four years of your life are behind you, and you’re never going to throw this jersey on again and play a real game.”
Southgate was overwhelmed with excitement over his side’s opening World Cup win against Tunisia in Volgograd on Monday.The 2-1 victory plus another three points against Panama in Nizhny Novgorod on Sunday will book their place in the knockout stages.However, the England boss, Southgate was brought crashing back to earth quite when he tripped up while jogging and dislocated his shoulder.He admits he feels embarrassed and that the messages from back home have gone from herograms to mocking ones.He said as reported by Daily Star:Crouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“I just clipped a step, landed on my elbow and that popped my shoulder out. I tried to get up, but my arm was pointing in a different direction so I just pulled my cap down hoping no-one would see me!“Running is, as a manager, where you get time to think. That time on your own and I will have to find a replacement for that because I don’t think I’ll be on the running machine any time soon in the next couple of months.“Every time I phone home, it’s the usual thing once people know you’re alive the gloves are off and there is more stick flying around!”Southgate has refused to wear a sling and will settle for the damaged arm being strapped up when he’s on the touchline to face Panama.He added: “They’ve got it strapped up. I didn’t like the look of a sling in public. So they can strap it and keep it in place.”
Dan Cohen AUTHOR The House and Senate Appropriations committees on Wednesday filed a $1.15 trillion fiscal 2016 omnibus providing funding for every agency, wrapping up weeks of tough negotiations between the two parties covering questions of policy and funding.By the time party leaders reached a final deal, the most contentious policy riders had been dropped, including provisions that would have limited Obama administration environmental, financial and campaign finance regulations, and effectively blocked the flow of refugees from Syria and Iraq, reported CQ Roll Call.Adhering to House Republicans’ “three-day rule” means that chamber will not take up the 2,009-page measure until Friday. Senate leaders said they would need a high degree of cooperation from every member to complete consideration of the spending package before the weekend.To avoid a government shutdown, both chambers on Wednesday approved a third continuing resolution (CR) that would keep the government running through Dec. 22. White House spokesman Josh Earnest indicated the president would sign the CR. Congressional leaders don’t believe they will need six days to pass the omnibus, but the extra time should ensure they don’t need to advance another stopgap, according to the story.“Nobody, I think, sees any benefit of stringing this out any longer than necessary, so my hope is that we’ll be able to conclude this Friday,” Sen. John Cornyn (R-Texas), the chamber’s Republican whip, told reporters.The existing CR expired at midnight Wednesday.Republican leaders praised the hard-fought omnibus deal. “While an end-of-the-year omnibus is not the preferred way to do business — it is always better to complete individual bills in a timely fashion — this bill will allow Congress to fulfill its constitutional duty to responsibly fund the federal government and avoid a shutdown,” House Appropriations Chairman Harold Rogers (R-Ky.) said in a statement.
