The 17-year-old from Royal Lytham and St Annes (image © Leaderboard Photography) defied winds gusting up to 35mph on the first day to post the low score of the tournament with a two-under 72 in the second round. Her score, combined with her opening 85, put her within one shot of the lead held by Ireland’s Gillian O’Leary. In the third and final round Emily moved ahead to secure the win, shooting 76 in blustery conditions, with  birdies on eight, ten, and 15 before she holed from 12ft on the last.

Victory for England at women’s Home Internationals

first_img4 Sep 2012 Victory for England at women’s Home Internationals England successfully defended their title in the women’s Home Internationals at Cork, Ireland – winning by the narrowest of margins over Wales. The two teams met today in the title decider and, in a very close encounter, the match was halved. But England emerged as champions on countback, having won more individual games during the three-day tournament. England had earlier beaten Ireland 9-0 and Scotland 5-4, while Wales defeated both those teams by a scoreline of 6-3. Team captain Chris Pascall commented: “We knew it was going to be a very tough day and the match was very close, but we got the half and that was a good result. We’ve won the week and that’s all you can ask.” Today’s match was intensely tight, with both the foursomes and singles exactly shared. As the afternoon’s play unfolded Wales seemed to have the edge, with only two England players ahead at the halfway stage. But England toughed it out and secured the necessary half. Curtis Cup star Holly Clyburn, who was three up at the turn, powered on to win her game 6/4. British girls’ champion Georgia Hall – ranked third in the world – took the lead in her match for the first time on the 15th. She also quickly won the 16th to go two up and halved the 17th for her point. Norfolk’s Amber Ratcliffe completed a successful team debut by securing the half with her 3/2 win. The 16-year-old was never behind in her game, although she was pulled back to all square after 12. She responded by winning the next three holes, before halving the 16th. The team, captained by Chris Pacall, was: Holly Clyburn (Woodhall Spa), Gabriella Cowley (West Essex), Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak), Bronte Law (Bramhall), Alex Peters (Notts’ Ladies), Amber Ratcliffe (Royal Cromer), Emily Taylor (Hillside), Kelly Tidy (Royal Birkdale). Results England 4½ Wales 4½ Foursomes Georgia Hall and Emily Taylor beat Amy Boulden and Becky Harries 4/2 Holly Clyburn and Bronte Law halved with Chloe Williams and Katie Bradbury Alex Peters and Kelly Tidy lost to Gemma Bradbury and Jess Evans 2/1 Singles Tidy lost to Boulden 3/1 Hall beat Williams 2/1 Taylor lost to Katie Bradbury 1 down Clyburn beat Gemma Bradbury 6/4 Amber Ratcliffe beat Evans 3/2, Law lost to Harries 4/3 In the day’s other match Ireland beat Scotland 5-4 How they finished: 1st England 2½ pt (games won 18½) 2nd Wales   2½ pt (games won 16½) England retained the title on the tie-breaking, individual games won rule. 3rd Ireland 1pt 4th Scotland 0pt   England snatch last gasp victory over Scotland 05 September 2012 England snatched a last gasp victory over Scotland today in the women’s Home Internationals at Cork, Ireland. Now they go head to head with Wales tomorrow in the title decider. Norfolk’s Amber Ratcliffe and Curtis Cup player Bronte Law both fought back in the final two singles to secure the precious 1½ points required for the team’s 5-4 win. Captain Chris Pascall said afterwards: “It was nerve wracking, but a very good result in the end. We had to dig deep.” The score means England, the defending champions, have won both their matches so far. So too have Wales, who today beat Ireland 6-3.   England, who enjoyed a 9-0 clean sweep in their opening match against Ireland, conceded their first game points of the tournament in this morning’s foursomes. English champion Kelly Tidy and English strokeplay champion Alex Peters romped to a 7/5 win in their game, conceding just one hole in the match. But the Scots beat the pairing of Holly Clyburn and Bronte Law and held Georgia Hall and Emily Taylor to a draw. As the singles unfolded, scoring remained extremely tight. With the first four games decided, England had won two, courtesy of Kelly Tidy and Emily Taylor, while Scotland also took two. Then, as the final two matches moved into the closing stages the Scots appeared to have the upper hand. Amber Ratcliffe, making her debut for England at this level, was see-sawing: one down after losing 15 to a birdie, all square after 16, one down after losing 17 to another birdie. Then, from a difficult lie in thick rough by the 18th green she got up and down for par to win the hole and halve her game. The outcome of the match then depended on Bronte Law – and the Curtis Cup player delivered the victory. She was never in front in her match until she won the 17th to edge one up with one to play – and she went on to also win the 18th for a 2up victory. Results England 5, Scotland 4 Foursomes Georgia Hall (Remedy Oak) and Emily Taylor (Hillside) halved with Kelsey MacDonald and Rachael Watton Kelly Tidy (Royal Birkdale) and Alex Peters (Notts’ Ladies) bt Laura Murray and Alyson McKechin 7/5 Holly Clyburn (Woodhall Spa) and Bronte Law (Bramhall) lost to Eilidh Briggs and Jane Turner 3/2 Singles Hall lost to MacDonald 1 hole Tidy bt Briggs 3/1 Clyburn lost to Watton 6/5 Taylor bt Rachel Walker 7/5 Amber Ratcliffe (Royal Cromer) halved with Lauren Whyte Law bt Turner 2 holes Final matches tomorrow: 08.30 and 13.10 Scotland v Ireland 09.00 and 14.10 England v Wales How they stand: England 2pt, Wales 2pt, Scotland 0pt, Ireland 0pt.   England beat Ireland 9-0 at Home Internationals 04 September 2012 England made a flawless start to their defence of the women’s Home Internationals with a 9-0 victory over the hosts, Ireland, on the first day of the championship at Cork. “It was a great result,” said captain Chris Pascall, whose team includes world number four, Georgia Hall, and three members of the winning Curtis Cup side, Holly Clyburn, Bronte Law and Kelly Tidy. But, she was quick to point out that despite the scoreline, the players had to work for their wins. Their strength was on the undulating greens, which are drying out after three days of sunshine and becoming very quick. “The putting was good today,” said Chris. The players set the tone of the day with their clean sweep of the three morning foursomes. Kelly Tidy and Alex Peters lost the first hole but were four up at the turn; Georgia Hall and Emily Taylor, birdied the 16th and won the 17th for their point, while Holly Clyburn and Bronte Law chipped in twice as they made their way to the turn five up.   As the singles got underway, English champion Kelly Tidy demonstrated devastating form with an 8/7 victory which she sealed with an eagle three on the 11th.   She was steadily followed by her team-mates.  Georgia Hall, the British girls’ champion, and Emily Taylor, the English girls’ titleholder, were never behind in their games; Amber Ratcliffe and Holly Clyburn both trailed by one hole during the front nine, but both played the back nine strongly to secure their points. Meanwhile, Alex Peters staged an impressive fightback to keep the clean sheet. The English stroke play champion was four down after 10 holes, but won the next six in a row, before halving the 17th for a 2/1 win. “It was a fantastic comeback,” said Chris. In the day’s other match Wales beat Scotland 6-3. Tomorrow England play Scotland, while Ireland play Wales.

To add to the electrifying main event, the co-main event will showcase the Light Heavyweight division contenders Maurício Rua and Paul Craig who are all set to punch and grapple all the way to their titles.Weight classAll  Fights on SONY TEN 2 and SONY TEN 2 HDLight Heavyweight BoutAdvertisement (Main Event)Jan BłachowiczVs.Ronaldo Souza Light Heavyweight Bout(Co-Main Event)Maurício RuaVs.Paul CraigLightweight BoutCharles OliveiraVs.Jared GordonMiddleweight BoutAntonio ArroyoVs.Andre MunizMiddleweight BoutMarkus PerezVs.Wellington TurmanMiddleweight BoutAntonio ArroyoVs.Kevin Holland Light Heavyweight Title Bout (Main Event) – Jan Błachowicz and Ronaldo SouzaUFC with Fight Night 164 has made inroads all the way to Brazil, where Jan “John” Błachowicz will be facing off Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza this weekend. This time Ronaldo Souza will look to be more Thiago Santos and less Luke Rockhold when he challenges Jan Blachowicz in Jacare’s native Brazil. The duo is all set for the Light Heavyweight main event seizing the limelight and keeping their fans up from their seats. Ronaldo “Jacare” Souza, a veteran in the UFC roster, has very strong control on the mat and John might have a tough time grappling him. At 40, he is an explosive athlete however what causes the slightest tension for the fans is that despite his strong calves, he might be giving up a substantial amount of reach to Blachowicz, who is only one inch taller and has a 78” reach compared to Jacare’s 72”.Jan “John” Błachowicz, on the other hand, might not have physical strength at bay but is known to take over with his strong mental game, which has always rendered the opponent unconscious around the fence. However, the fight is predicted to be very simple and if Jacare can get Blachowicz down then there’s every chance he can get him out of there with a submission, as well.Light Heavyweight Title Bout (Main Event) – Maurício Rua and Paul CraigThe co-main event this week is a reminder of the abode of talent that exists in the Light Heavyweight with the incredible opening act with Maurício Rua and Paul Craig.Keeping his boat afloat this year after that violent knockout by Anthony Smith, Maurício “Shogun” Rua is back this weekend to face Paul “Bearjew” Craig. Craig is almost everyone’s favorite all over the world right now. He may not the best athlete or isn’t as skilled but has got to this level due to sheer hard work and dedication. He’s not terrible from the clinch to be fair, but against some of the more explosive 205lbers, he always has a tough time as he struggles to grapple.Shogun, on the other hand, is a BJJ black belt and a skilled grappler and is known to steer his opponents away by reminding them of his incredibly hard punches. Amongst these two, Craig might have some success early on by clinching with Shogun, but we really doubt his strength and stamina to combat the heat that Shogun’s going to throw at him. Of course, Shogun’s power and finishing instincts undoubtedly remain intact. Advertisementlast_img read more

Powered by Firework The coach of Australian cricket team, Ricky Ponting would have picked Australian bowling lineup ahead of Indian bowling attack ‘every day of the week’. Ricky Ponting told exactly this after the series win against Pakistan in the  official website of Australian cricket board.Advertisement India are currently well ahead of Australia in terms of points in the ongoing Test Championship. India have demolished two test sides, South Africa and Bangladesh at home quite brutally. The pacers of Indian cricket team are finally getting the recognition they deserve.Advertisement At this moment, Ricky Ponting tried to put some pressure on Indian bowlers with his comment. India will play against Australia in a 4 match test series next year. So, they will certainly remember these words of Ricky Ponting ahead of the series.According to Ponting, Australia have more variations in the bowling lineup than India. Mitchell Starc is a very much special bowler for Australia. On the other hand, Nathan Lyon is also successful in Australian condition. Ponting thinks that Ashwin and Jadeja are not that much good in Australia. However, Bumrah and Shami are consistent performers for India. Umesh and Ishant are also doing well; but still they are behind Australia in terms of variety.Advertisement Perils of Social Media: Hobart Hurricane’s Emily Smith handed a one-year suspension over Instagram post Advertisementlast_img read more
