Pinterest WhatsApp Community By Steven Miller – 20th June 2018 The ongoing troublesome issue of walkovers in the Laois hurling and football leagues raised its head this evening again – after Clonaslee’s big win over Barrowhouse ensure that three teams finished level on points in joint second place in ACFL Division 2.Barrowhouse were seeking their third win in five days but were no match for a Clonaslee side that ran out comfortable 4-10 to 0-5 winners.The result means that Courtwood, Clonaslee and Barrowhouse finish level on 14 points, one behind St Joseph’s who have topped the division.But because Clonaslee were awarded the points from their games against Annanough and Graiguecullen, scoring difference cannot be used.A similar scenario raised its head in Division 1 of the hurling league – in both the relegation and knockout places.In the relegation instance a playoff was ordered by the Laois CCC but it will be interesting to see what decision they come to here as promotion is also an issue.Something similar could play out at the bottom of that division as wins for Annanough over Timahoe or Kilcavan over Park-Ratheniska could leave at least three teams on six points but again scoring difference couldn’t be used because of walkovers.The Clonaslee footballers have an ACFL Division 2 semi-final to look forward to after they recorded a big win over Barrowhouse in the last regular league game for both side.In Division 1A of the hurling league there was a big win for Rathdowney-Errill over Clonad. That result means that Rathdowney-Errill go straight into that final while the semi-final between Rosenallis and Ballinakill will be played this Saturday in the Laois GAA Centre of Excellence.In Division 2 Clough-Ballacolla’s win over Shanahoe means Ballacolla go into the final while Borris-Kilcotton had a 1-15 to 2-11 win over Slieve Bloom but the same sides will have to meet again in the semi-final.The results to hand this evening are:ACHL Division 1AClonad 2-3 Rathdowney-Errill 2-19ACHL Division 2Clough-Ballacolla 3-15 Shanahoe 1-15Mountmellick 1-19 Castletown 1-14ACFL Division 2Barrowhouse 0-5 Clonaslee 4-10ACFL Division 4Camross v Arles-Kilcruise – conceded by Arles-KilcruiseU-17 Hurling LeaguePortlaoise 3-10 Rosenallis 2-16U-13 Football League Division 2 FinalThe Harps 3-3 Camross 2-8U-13 Football League Division 3 Cup Semi FinalStradbally Parish Gaels 4-14 Spink 6-10 Twitter Pinterest Community RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR TAGSLaois GAA Results Facebook Ten Laois based players named on Leinster rugby U-18 girls squad Five Laois monuments to receive almost €200,000 in government funding Rugby Charlie Flanagan on Electric Picnic: ‘I’d ask organisers to consult with community leaders’last_img read more

But at the same time I imagined that I would already be a bit further ahead. Playing and training more regularly with the first-team squad.“Now, these three years must enable me to play at the professional level. I’ve acquired a background at the youth academy in Manchester that I want to use at a higher level now.“I hope that happens in Manchester, if not then why not go and get playing time elsewhere. But if I leave, it is for a first team.

first_imgJoin DAZN and watch Bellator Dublin on Sept. 27But even more history will be made on the show when McKee’s father, Antonio, returns after a five-year retirement to face William Sriyapai in the preliminary portion of the card. When A.J. steps into the cage as part of the main card, the McKees will officially become the first father-son duo to fight at the same event for a major MMA organization.* * *Antonio McKee (29-6-2) started competing in 1999, when A.J. was 4 years old. MMA wasn’t sanctioned in those days, which means fighting was like the Wild, Wild West. He competed in promotions like the UFC, the IFL and the World Series of Fighting (now the Professional Fighters League). He went undefeated for 7 1/2 years (14-0-1).A.J. doesn’t remember much about the early days, except for one thing.”He always had these funky wrestling shoes that always made me laugh,” the younger McKee said. While Antonio was taking fights in Japan, Mexico and Russia to put food on the table, A.J was getting into fights on the playground at school starting in the second grade. He graduted to fighting in the bathroom when he was in high school for much as $100.”I kept telling my dad I wanted to fight like he did,” A.J. McKee said. “He kept telling me no, so I went and did it at school to get his attention.”BELLATOR 228: Patricio ‘Pitbull’ Freire vs. Juan Archuleta fight date, price, how to watch, live streamA job of a parent is to protect their kids at all costs and ensure they are always safe. Despite A.J.’s badgering to let him follow in his father’s footsteps, Antonio kept resisting until right around A.J.’s 18th birthday. “Amateur fights weren’t really around, so we used to go to other gyms and do, like, little exhibition matches with this gym vs. our gym, their gym vs. this gym,” the younger McKee said. “That was kind of my amateur career for me until I started doing actual amateur fights.”Antonio still wasn’t convinced his son should fight for a living, though. He wanted to see if A.J. could compete in an MMA bout instead of the bare-knuckle, street-fighter variety to which he was accustomed. The rest is history.”I would say a week after my 18th birthday, I went up to my dad and was like, ‘You know what? I’m ready. I want to fight like you. Let’s do this. I need to be in this industry fighting,’ so he was like, ‘You know what? Let me see for myself.’ I went out there and faced this guy, and the match was supposed to be three rounds at three minutes apiece. Immediately, I picked this guy up and dropped him on his head. And he looked at me and was like, ‘Holy crap. I think we got a fighter here. Let’s stop messing around. Now, if you’re going to do this, you got to do it right and give it 110 percent.'”* * *A.J. McKee made his pro debut at Bellator 136 on April 10, 2015, against Marcos Bonilla. He instantly put the MMA world on notice in choking out Bonilla in a little over two minutes.McKee has steamrolled through the competition ever since. He sports a 14-0 record, with nine victories by stoppage, heading into Bellator 228. He has become one of MMA’s hottest prospects, with most pundits feeling he’s on the cusp of becoming a world champion.When the 49-year-old Antonio McKee approached his son about him also being on the Bellator 228 card, A.J. was excited because he always wanted the moment to happen. There is trepidation, however; A.J. doesn’t want to see the person who helped him become the person he is today to get hurt in any way. “When your actual father’s going into the cage, he’s going to war, in a sense,” A.J. McKee said. “He’s going to get punched and kicked, so it’s a little scary, but I got to go out there and do my job and make sure that I do my job and advance to the next round.”The fight against Karakhanyan is personal for the younger McKee. Both fighters come from California and have known each other for years. When Karakhanyan started in mixed martial arts, he trained in the same gym as Antonio McKee. Things turned sour recently when Karakhanyan and A.J. McKee were doing media rounds together. Karakhanyan was asked who he wanted to fight next, and he said McKee, who was surprised by the comments. A.J. will be in Antonio’s corner Saturday, and the roles will be reversed later in the evening. A.J. knows his dad will take care of business, and he’s confident he’ll cap off the monumental night by inching closer to accomplishing his dream and carrying on the McKee name with honor and dignity.”Georgi knows he’s going to have a fight on his hands,” A.J. McKee said. “He remembers when he was a 17-, 18-year-old kid walking around, playing around, punching and kicking people. I’m not a 4-year-old kid anymore. I’m not only fighting for a million dollars, but for my family’s legacy.”Georgi, he’s been around. He knows my dad. He knows he’s got a fight on his hands. My advice to him is, ‘Don’t leave room for error, because if you do, you can get caught.’ I’m the mercenary doing what he does best by kicking ass, taking names, and Georgi is the man with the name and needs to get his ass kicked.” In the mind of 24-year-old A.J. McKee, history was already going to be made Saturday at Bellator 228. He will be starting his journey toward winning the Featherweight Grand Prix and, ultimately, the featherweight championship as he takes on Georgi Karakhanyan in the opening round of the tournament, which can be seen exclusively on DAZN. “I think the 145-pound division we have is probably one of the most stacked weight classes in the world,” McKee told Sporting News. “Not even just in the world, we are in the common division right now, which is kind of weird, you know, With me being the young one, I’m looking to come out there and win the tournament, become the featherweight champion and cash that $1 million check at 24 years old. My dad literally has to calm me down. I’m cutting weight, and I’m still wanting to go work out. He’s like, ‘Dude, just relax, like, chill out a little bit.’ I’m like, ‘Dude, this is grind time.'”last_img read more

first_imgThe All-Pro vowed to learn from his mistakes and follow a path similar to the one Steelers’ great Jerome Bettis paved on his way to the Hall of Fame.“I’m glad to finally get it over with, look behind me, know exactly what I have to deal with, and move forward,” Bell said.Bell’s suspension stems from a DUI arrest and drug charges — cited for marijuana possession — when he and former teammate LeGarrette Blount were pulled over on their way to a team flight for a preseason game in Philadelphia last August.Bell said the suspension won’t affect his preparation for the upcoming season.“I just want to go out there, try to get better as a player and grow with the team,” Bell said.Bettis, the sixth-leading rusher in NFL history, will witness the peak of his career this weekend when he is inducted into the Hall of Fame. Bell’s career is just beginning and the Steelers’ current backfield star believes he can top last year’s record-breaking second season.“I feel a lot more confident in myself and I feel like a better football player,” Bell said. “Last year, I left some plays on the field and I could’ve had an even better season.”The 23-year-old Bell idolized Bettis while growing up in Columbus, Ohio.“Everybody in my family loved the Steelers, so I watched (Bettis) all the time,” Bell said. “When he was on TV, we were watching the game, and he was running, breaking tackles and spinning off people.”Bell distinctly recalled the Steelers’ run in 2005 to the Super Bowl title, specifically the regular-season game in whiteout conditions when Bettis bowled over Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher en route to a touchdown.“When it’s cold outside, I don’t wear sleeves because I watched Jerome Bettis,” Bell said. “It could be 12 degrees and snowing and he was out there without sleeves on.”Bettis has complimented Bell on his ball security, an area Bettis excelled in despite an infamous and rare goal-line fumble late during a playoff game against Indianapolis. Bettis fumbled once in his final 360 regular-season carries, and Bell has lost the ball just once in 534 rushing attempts.“That’s something he always preaches, to make sure I secure the ball,” Bell said. “He loves the fact that I’m able to do that and I have been doing it really well.”Bell enjoyed a banner sophomore season, finishing second in the league with 1,361 yards rushing and 2,215 all-purpose yards from scrimmage. Bell, a lynchpin in the Steelers’ No. 2-ranked offense, also set single-season team records for yards from scrimmage and receptions, and yards receiving by a running back.Bell said this year could be even better.“When I watch my film from last year, especially at the beginning, I look at myself and I think, ‘What was I doing there?’ ” Bell said. “It’s crazy to think, but a year from now, I’ll be saying the same thing.“As long as I continue to get better, the sky is the limit.”How high remains to be seen, but Bettis is already a fan of Bell’s work.“He doesn’t always get on my back about the things I do bad,” Bell said. “He always tells me about the good things I do, too.“We have a great relationship off the field and I think it’s going to get stronger as time goes on.”AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL,The All-Pro vowed to learn from his mistakes and follow a path similar to the one Steelers’ great Jerome Bettis paved on his way to the Hall of Fame.“I’m glad to finally get it over with, look behind me, know exactly what I have to deal with, and move forward,” Bell said.Bell’s suspension stems from a DUI arrest and drug charges — cited for marijuana possession — when he and former teammate LeGarrette Blount were pulled over on their way to a team flight for a preseason game in Philadelphia last August.Bell said the suspension won’t affect his preparation for the upcoming season.“I just want to go out there, try to get better as a player and grow with the team,” Bell said.Bettis, the sixth-leading rusher in NFL history, will witness the peak of his career this weekend when he is inducted into the Hall of Fame.
