Real survive scare to win club cup with Ronaldo hat-trick

first_imgBy Chris GallagherTOKYO,(Reuters)-Real Madrid suffered an almighty fright before a Cristiano Ronaldo hat-trick hauled them back from 2-1 down and gave them a 4-2 win over rank outsiders Kashima Antlers in the Club World Cup final yesterday.Two goals from Gaku Shibasaki stunned the European champions as the Japanese hosts took a 2-1 lead early in the second half before a Ronaldo penalty brought Real level on the hour.The 11-times European champions then survived several more scares and a possible sending-off for captain Sergio Ramos before Ronaldo scored twice more in the first period of extra-time.Real, who won the tournament for the second time in three years and were crowned champions for a fifth time overall, appeared set for an easy victory when Karim Benzema gave them a ninth-minute lead but Shibasaki changed the story by levelling one minute before halftime.Kashima were the first Asian team to reach the final although they qualified for the tournament as champions of host nation Japan. Asian champions Jeonbuk Motors had lost in the quarter-finals.“We knew it was not going to be an easy one. They were very aggressive,” Real coach Zinedine Zidane told reporters.Real went ahead when Luka Modric’s volley was parried by Hitoshi Sogahata and Benzema tapped in the rebound.Kashima refused to be overawed, continued playing their neat football and snatched a shock equaliser just before the break.Shoma Doi’s cross found Shibasaki, whose first touch was poor but he was gifted a second attempt when Raphael Varane failed to clear and he smashed the ball into the net.Shibasaki struck again six minutes after the break when he collected a poor Real clearance, got away from three opponents and fired a low shot past Keylor Navas from 25 metres.Real were facing their first defeat since they lost to VfL Wolfsburg in April, a run of 36 competitive games, until Lucas Vazquez was bundled over by Shuto Yamamoto and Ronaldo converted the resulting penalty on the hour.Kashima continued to give as good as they got and had three good chances in the final minutes of normal time.Fabricio’s goalbound drive was tipped over by Navas and the Costa Rican goalkeeper came to the rescue again one minute later by blocking Mu Kanazaki’s shot after he got free of the Real defence.Yasushi Endo could have won it with the last kick but fired wide at the far post while Sergio Ramos was lucky to escape a second yellow card for a push on an opponent, a decision which Kashima coach Masatada Ishii said “lacked courage”.Ronaldo ended Kashima’s dream when he collected Benzema’s sliderule pass and fired past Sogahata eight minutes into extra-time, then settled the match six minutes later with an emphatic finish into the roof of the net.“We gave Real Madrid problems,” said Ishii. “That’s what we were able to do. But we made small mistakes in positioning and judgment so it’s frustrating.”last_img read more

Study: Net farm income rises in Iowa as net farm worth falls

first_imgAMES — A report from the Iowa State University Extension shows a slight increase in net farm income but a decrease in total farm assets and net farm worth.ISU Extension economist Alejandro Plastina says the Iowa Farm Costs and Returns Analysis shows net farm income rose by six-percent last year, while the average net farm worth fell by seven-percent.  Plastina says, “We learned that profitability went slightly up in 2018 compared to 2017, but overall, asset values and net worth actually declined, compared to the previous year.”He says the rate of return for Iowa farmers hasn’t budged in six years.  “Since 2013, the rate of return has not gone above 2.5%,” Plastina says, “where if we go back to 2009, ’10, ’11 and ’12, the rate of return was between eight and ten-percent, so a big drop.” He notes, the rate of return hasn’t changed much since 2013, unfortunately.Plastina says one of the surprises from the report is that the size of the average Iowa farm declined by 21 acres, the lowest since 2013. He says a combination of factors likely led to that. “Some farms might have dropped some of the rented acres where they were less profitable,” Plastina says. “Some farms might have dropped from the database, especially those larger farms.”The report was limited to farms with sales of $100,000 or more. The analysis did not contain 2019 information. This year saw severe flooding and planting delays that could delay harvest and reduce yields.last_img read more

Mayfair tops La Mirada again

first_imgAdvantage, Mayfair. Again. In recent years, the Monsoons have dominated their Suburban League rivalry against La Mirada, with no losses since the 2002-03 season and consecutive league titles. Wednesday afternoon at Mayfair, two goals from sophomore Nicole Hubbard helped them prevail in the league opener for both teams, 2-1. “We always know this is going to be the toughest game to decide league,” Mayfair coach Sal Marroquin said. “My first two years here, they took it to us. So far, we’ve been able to, these last two years, answer.” Mayfair (17-0, 1-0), which advanced to the CIF Southern Section Division III semifinals last season, picked up the game-winner a few minutes after halftime as Hubbard put away a deflection of a Tiya Gallegos corner kick. The Monsoons were playing without junior Monique Cisneros, who is spending the month playing for Mexico’s U-20 national team.
