Hogan said there’s a lot of questions right now, but he’s hopeful answers will come this week and practice can begin soon. “I actually was somewhat surprised with the way things were going. But some is better than none there’s no doubt about that. So happy to hear we’re at least gonna try it,” he said. The number of required practices students need before playing scrimmages/games. The number of games allowed during the fall seasonThe development of consideration for schools to use as athletics return. “Hopefully down the road we’re able to have some competition,” said Hogan. “I’m sure I’m speaking for everybody. If any sport is going to just practice with no chance of playing the game you’d rather take your chances and go later in the school year.” Following Governor Cuomo’s guidance on Monday, Chenango Forks Athletic Director Dave Hogan said he didn’t expect low-risk sports to get cleared to play. In a release, the NYSPHSAA announced staff members met with section executive directors Tuesday morning, followed by a meeting with the COVID-19 Task Force. As Forks’ football coach, Hogan said getting permission to practice beginning September 21 is positive news but it will be difficult to motivate the team without promise of games. (WBNG) — The New York State Public High School Athletic Association held two meetings Tuesday to discuss the return of fall sports. “It’s just not knowing, is really tough,” said Hogan. “We always talk about controlling the uncontrollables and stuff like that. We don’t have any control over what’s going to be decided at that level so you just have to prepare for it as if it’s going to happen.” For more on the guidance released Monday, click here.

Liverpool ace Salah sets sights on elite status

first_imgSalah has 36 goals in 41 games in all competitions, while Ronaldo has scored 37 in 35 and Messi 35 in 43.Palace boss Roy Hodgson must find a way to subdue Salah this weekend as third placed Liverpool look to celebrate manager Jurgen Klopp’s 100th Premier League game.Liverpool have lost just twice in their last 22 league matches, but with a Champions League quarter-final first leg date against Manchester City next week it will be fascinating to see if Salah is given the full 90 minutes or is rested.“I’ve never worked with him so can only talk from having watched him. He must be delighted to be performing in that top bracket of players,” Hodgson said.“The only way you can prevent quality players is through the collective work of the team.”With Palace sitting just two points above the relegation zone, Hodgson is sweating over the fitness of influential Ivory Coast winger Wilfried Zaha.Palace have lost all nine league matches Zaha has missed this season and he is a doubt for the Liverpool clash after being unable to train in the international break.Zaha limped off late in Palace’s 2-0 victory at Huddersfield earlier this month — his first start since returning from a knee ligaments injury — but has since had to rest.“He has not really been doing any training with us to any great extent. Obviously we are nursing the knee problem that he has. He is one that we will have a look at,” Hodgson said.“We hope that the knee will be OK but we have had to be very cautious with him after the Huddersfield game because he came back from injury a lot earlier than perhaps he should have done.”Share on: WhatsApp London, United Kingdom | AFP | Mohamed Salah might not have won his duel with Cristiano Ronaldo during the international break, but the Liverpool winger is on the verge of being ranked alongside the Portugal superstar after his record-breaking season.Salah was left frustrated by Ronaldo last week as he put Egypt ahead in their friendly against Portugal, only to see his rival strike twice in stoppage-time to steal the victory.It was fitting that Salah was on target in his shoot-out with Ronaldo as there is a growing belief the Liverpool ace can emulate the incredible achievements of Real Madrid forward Ronaldo and Barcelona striker Lionel Messi.Salah has already had a remarkable first season with Liverpool following his move from Roma and he heads into Saturday’s Premier League clash at Crystal Palace with more milestones in his sights.The 25-year-old’s four-goal blitz in Liverpool’s 5-0 rout of Watford before the international break set a new record for the most goals by a Reds player in his debut campaign.Salah, who has 12 goals in his last 10 appearances in all competitions, has scored in 20 of his 30 league matches this season.If he scores against Palace he will equal the record for a 38-match season, set by Ronaldo in 2007-08 and Robin van Persie in 2012-13.“You can look at Fernando Torres and Luis Suarez and he is up there with any Liverpool forward to have come in,” Reds legend Ian Rush says of Salah.“He’s been absolutely amazing but the thing with Salah is that he is so down-to-earth as well.“The game against Watford was the best I have ever seen him play, he was untouchable — not just because of his four goals but also because he wasn’t selfish and was trying to make goals for his team-mates.“There are only two players I have seen that can play at that level, and that’s Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.”last_img read more
