Virus concerns prompt Democrats to hold largely virtual nominating convention

first_imgDemocrats will hold a largely virtual convention in August to nominate Joe Biden as their presidential candidate, the party said on Wednesday, with Biden giving his acceptance speech in person in Milwaukee, but state delegations staying home.The decision comes as novel coronavirus cases are spiking in several states nationwide, including California, Florida and Texas, further upending the 2020 presidential race.Republicans, in contrast, plan to hold a largely in-person event in Jacksonville, Florida, in August, intending to have President Donald Trump accept his nomination on Aug. 27 before thousands in an indoor arena. “Leadership means being able to adapt to any situation,” Tom Perez, chair of the Democratic National Committee, said in a statement. “That’s exactly what we’ve done with our convention. Unlike this president, Joe Biden and Democrats are committed to protecting the health and safety of the American people.”Milwaukee was originally chosen as the site of the convention because Wisconsin is a battleground state in the Nov. 3 general election. Opinion polls show Biden with a lead over Trump there. Trump’s victory in Wisconsin in 2016 helped propel him to the presidency.Delegates will conduct all convention business remotely, including casting their votes for Biden as the nominee, the party said.A poll conducted by the University of North Florida released on Wednesday found that almost 60 percent of Jacksonville residents opposed the Republican convention being held in their city. Respondents cited concerns over the coronavirus and potential protests over racial justice and police brutality.Topics : The Republicans moved the speech from Charlotte, North Carolina, after the state’s Democratic governor refused to relax social-distancing rules aimed at curbing the coronavirus.It was not clear if Biden’s speech, expected for Aug. 20 at a Milwaukee convention center, would have a live audience.Biden, who was vice president for eight years under Barack Obama, has been critical of Trump’s handling of the coronavirus, saying he has pressed states such as Florida to reopen their economies too quickly and disregarded health and safety concerns.After holding a rally at an arena in Tulsa, Oklahoma, on Saturday, Trump spoke at a campaign event on Tuesday in Arizona, another state being hit hard by a surge of coronavirus cases.last_img read more

Picture: Marc McCormackCARAVONICA brings together old and new in a diverse, affordable and scenic Cairns suburb.Wedged between the Barron River and rainforest, the area is popular among families.The emergence of Red Peak Forest Estate, driven by the Oberdan family, has changed the face of Caravonica.Kaylan Close resident Dragan Rastoka moved to Caravonica with his wife Meena and their two children more than 20 years ago.He said Red Peak Forest Estate had been beneficial to the entire suburb.“Vince Oberdan came around and talked to people, saying this is what he planned to do. There’s no doubt it has added value to our property,” the retiree said. “It was a very quiet area when we first moved here – the Western Arterial Rd wasn’t built. “The kids would ride their bikes to Caravonica State School and we’d go swimming in Lake Placid.

Mr Gray and his family have lived in the suburb, about 17km northwest of Cairns, for about 23 years.“It is a beautiful area and is also quite family-orientated, everyone looks out for one another,” he said. “Apart from Red Peak Forest Estate it hasn’t changed too much, although you do see some of the older homes being renovated.” Caravonica has an average gross rental yield of 5.4 per cent, with houses spending an average of just 28 days on the market.According to Cairns Regional Council, the suburb was named after the Italian hometown of 19th century Far North farmer Dr David Thomatis.last_img read more

Cairns real estate: Earlville classic Queenslander up for auction for first time in its 60-year history

first_img Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health Service chairman Clive Skarott with former real estate agent Tony Williamson. PICTURE: STEWART MCLEANMore from newsCairns home ticks popular internet search terms2 days agoTen auction results from ‘active’ weekend in Cairns2 days agoHe said the only changes to the house were when the roof was changed and the toilet was moved to an internal one. “It’s a very open and breezy home and Dad liked sitting on the front patio with Mum for a beer. Earlville is a great area to live in, it’s close to everything you need,” he said. This house features classic timber flooring, currently under carpets and vinyl, but ready to be polished and restored. The spacious living area features casement windows and high ceilings and all three bedrooms offer plenty of space.Sitting on an 875sq m block, downstairs is fully enclosed, allowing for two cars, but there is a huge undercover carport at the back for another two vehicles or a caravan. It is within minutes of Stockland Shopping Centre, schools, sporting facilities and social clubs. With amazing potential to reap the rewards, this property is in a great position and will be snapped up quickly. The auction will be held on June 9 at 5.30pm at the Whitfield Chapel, 47 Heavey Crescent, Whitfield. Prominent Cairns businessman Clive Skarott grew up at 7 Gordon St, Earlville which will be auctioned on June 9.QUEENSLANDER home enthusiasts will love this rare three-bedroom home on a large lot with a backyard, located in a bustling central Cairns suburb. There’s not many homes on the market like 7 Gordon St, Earlville, as urban streets and lifestyles become confined to modern or renovated homes, on smaller blocks. But this classic Queenslander stands tall in its original glory, with only minimal work on it since it was completed in 1960. It has managed to sustain its originality, because after 60 years, it is only now entering the market for the first time, after remaining in the hands of one clan for six decades – the Skarott family. Prominent Cairns businessman Clive Skarott grew up at 7 Gordon St, Earlville which will be auctioned on June 9.Prominent Cairns businessman and current chairman of the Cairns and Hinterland Hospital and Health board Clive Skarott remembers moving into the property as a 17-year-old. “Mum and Dad bought it in November 1959 and moved in February 1960,” Mr Skarott said.“It’s definitely a big allotment compared to what’s out there, and it took a while to mow the lawn.“There were four children and Mum and Dad. As we all started buying cars, there was enough room there for all of us. “Dad was a motor mechanic at Irelands and I remember we had enough room for him to work on our cars on the weekends.” last_img read more

Usmanov: Arsenal just one man short

first_img “If I had the right, I would keep Arsene until he wants because until he cannot perform his activity as a manager, it is a gift for any club to have a coach like Arsene Wenger.” Arsenal are not expected to have either midfielder Jack Wilshere (ankle) or forward Danny Welbeck (knee) available against West Ham. Forward Sanchez will also not be involved following an extended break after helping Chile win the Copa America. Press Association Arsenal are just one player short of being ready to dominate Europe, according to shareholder Alisher Usmanov. The Gunners beat Chelsea to win the FA Community Shield at Wembley last weekend, and will begin their challenge for the 2015/16 Barclays Premier League at home to West Ham on Sunday. Manager Arsene Wenger moved to strengthen the squad with the £10million summer addition of veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech, and Arsenal continue to be linked with a big-money bid for Real Madrid’s France international forward Karim Benzema. Usmanov, whose Red & White Holdings group own just over 30 per cent of the club’s parent company, believes should Wenger bring in another top target, then he would have assembled a squad capable of challenging the best across Europe. “If there aren’t (any) severe injuries, he’s got a great chance to compete with teams like Chelsea, Manchester United and Manchester City. The championship will be decided between these four teams,” Usmanov said in an interview with CNN. “With the team that Arsene has put together, except for one position, I think it’s a club that’s ready to successfully fight for European cups.” While Real Madrid coach Rafa Benitez intends to keep Benzema as part of his plans for next season, it appears the 27-year-old – who did not travel with the Spanish side to the Audi Cup in Munich – looks set to be on the periphery of the team led by Cristiano Ronaldo and Wales forward Gareth Bale. Arsenal, though, would have to again dig deep into the Emirates Stadium reserves , with Benzema likely to command a fee of around £40million, not to mention his hefty wage packet which would be expected to put him among the top earners at the club. Following improved transfer activity in recent seasons, with the purchases of Mesut Ozil and Alexis Sanchez, Wenger has received the backing of the Arsenal Supporters Trust in a member’s survey. Usmanov, yet to be included on the Arsenal board, believes the 65-year-old Frenchman put his own reputation on the line to help the club move forwards with relocation from Highbury in 2006, which saw almost a decade pass before successive FA Cup triumphs. “Arsene had a very, very difficult position when club shareholders didn’t want to put their money into constructing the new stadium, a nd because of this he lost five years, maybe the best of his career, without a trophy. In reality, 10 years,” Usmanov said. last_img read more

Live IND vs PAK, Highlights Asia Cup 2018: Men in Blue thrash Green Army by 8 wickets

first_imgNew Delhi: India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2018 Live Cricket Score, Commentary: Pakistan were 162 all out against India in a Group A game of the Asia Cup at Dubai International Stadium on Wednesday. Batting first, Pakistan didn’t get a good start and Bhuvneshwar struck twice to remove in-form duo of Imam ul Haq (2) and Fakhar Zaman (0) early. They were reduced 2 for 3. But then experienced Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam stitched a crucial 82 runs partnership for the third wicket and appeared to have taken control of the proceedings. However, Babar failed to read Kuldeep’s googly as it clipped his off-bail. From 85-2, it soon became 100-5 as Pakistan suffered a batting collapse losing five wickets for 36 runs. Then, Faheem Ashraf (21) and Mohammed Aamir (16) added an invaluable 37 runs for the eighth wicket to take the total past 150-run mark. For India, Bhuvneshwar Kumar (3/15 in 7 overs) provided initial breakthroughs, Jadhav, making a comeback to the national team, bowled with control to return with exceptional figures of 3 for 23 in 9 overs to break the backbone of the Pakistani lower middle-order. Jasprit Bumrah (2/23 in 7.1 overs) and chinaman Kuldeep Yadav (1/37 in 8 overs) also accomplished their task to perfection. India vs Pakistan, Asia Cup 2018 Live Cricket Score, Commentary# Rohit Sharma-led India win by 8 wickets!!! #10:23 PM: SIX! Karthik decided to go after it. #10:19 PM: OUT!  Dhawan misses hit fifty. Went after the short-wide liner to toe-end the flat bat to point where Babar Azam caught it very fine. Is it too late or there are still mroe twists left?#10:17 PM: 100 comes up for India: Score after 16 overs: India 100-1; Dhawan 42(51); Rayudu 3(8)#10:13 PM: Injury scare continues. After Pandya, Shadab Khan also felt his lower back and he left the field. Fakhar Zaman, left-arm orthodox, will complete the over.#10:10 PM: Score after 15 overs: IND 98-1; Rayudu 2(3); Dhawan 41(50)#10:07 PM: FOUR! Short of length around off, hardly gave Dhawan enough room but he somehow carves it away to the fence#10:04 PM: Twitter Talks: “It is high time Shikhar Dhawan commands more respect for being an ODI star! In multi-nation tournaments he is fabulous,” says Bibhu Prasad Tripathy.#10:01 PM: Ambati Rayudu, right handed bat, comes to the crease#10:00 PM: OUT! Rohit Sharma out after fifty. Shadab Khan provides Pakistan a much-needed breakthrough. A googly that slipped right through Rohit’s defence. He could not pick it. But He has done the damage and Pakistan won’t be too much happy as they need couple of more quick wickets.#09:58 PM: FOUR! And fifty for Rohit Sharma. Full on off stump, Rohit hits through the line over mid-off. Wonderful timing. Shadab Khan, right-arm leg break, comes into the attack#09:56 PM: SIX! Hasan Ali didn’t learn any lessons here. Boss, no matter you are Hasan Ali or Wasim Akram, you can’t bowl short to Rohit Sharma. He is a wrong man, bowl that to Dhawan, you might get away with that,#09:49 PM: Twitter Talks: “Where is the theatre? Where is the drama? No twists and turns. This game ain’t what Indo-Pak contests are known for,” says Mohammad Aquib.#09:46 PM: SIX! Dhawan joins the party. Hooked it in the air, but cleared the fielder at the deep backward square. The thinking was right as there was a fielder at deep backward square but Dhawan was too good for this. Pakistan can’t afford more runs. They need a couple of wickets here or they will end up losing side.#09:45 PM: Score after 10 overs: India – 58-0; Dhawan 18(31); Rohit 38(30)#09:43 PM: FOUR! Dhawan this time. He was like – why should Rohit have all the fun? A length ball outside off and Dhawan cuts it well past cover point for four.#09:42 PM: Faheem Ashraf, right-arm medium, comes into the attack#09:40 PM: Score after 9 overs: India 52-0; Dhawan 14(26); Rohit 37(29)#09:39 PM: FOUR!  Just a little short around off and Rohit again played that on front-foot. He makes batting look so easy.#09:37 PM: Hasan Ali, right-arm fast medium, comes into the attack#09:35 PM: SIX, well, it’s going out of the park! That went from Dubai to Abu Dhabi. Clearly the biggest hit of the game, or maybe the tournament. A short delivery again and Rohit was waiting for it. Pulls it off the front-foot and times this over the mid-wicket fence for a 96m six. 19 runs off the over.#09:33 PM: No ball, FOUR, insult to injury. A boundary, a no ball and more over a free hit. Usman is losing the plot here. Rohit on fire.#09:32 PM: SIX, top-edge but it goes the distance. Rohit Sharma has decided to make things one sided. Usman was bowling very tight but this time bowled it short with not enough pace. Rohit won’t leave you if you will bowl such deliveries to him.#09:29 PM: FOUR more! Comes on to the front foot and drills the full-length delivery through the gap at covers. #09:28 PM: FOUR! Rohit Sharma has decided to attack Pakistan’s most lethal bowler Amir. There was not enough pace in that. Gets width on offer and makes sure to thrash with a superb square-cut. #09:22 PM: Another fine over from Usman Khan. Just two runs off the over. India after 6 overs: 17/0#09:18 PM: Maiden over by Amir: India off to a very cautious start. They don’t want to take any risk as the target is very low. Score after 5 overs: India: 15-0; Dhawan 10(19); Rohit 5(11)#09:12 PM: Five dots and a single. Usman Khan bowled that over very tightly. Didn’t allow players to open hands and go for a drive. Pakistan needs plenty of bowling like this. #09:10 PM: India fans at the innings breakIndia fans at the innings break like… 🎉Reply with a gif of how you’re feeling right now!#INDvPAK #AsiaCup2018— ICC (@ICC) September 19, 2018#09:04 PM: Score after 2 overs: Indian 7-0; Rohit 5(9); Dhawan 2(3)#09:00 PM: FOUR! First boundary of the innings from Rohit. This is his 100th ODI innings as opener. It was a short of a length delivery around off, Rohit tries to defend it but the ball nips back and catches the inside edge. Goes for four towards fine leg fence.#08:58 PM: Tight first over from Amir: Four dots and two singles. The start is good for Pakistan but they will need quick wickets if want to stay in the game. Usman Khan, comes into the attack#08:55 PM: Welcome back! Rohit and Dhawan are at the crease. Rohit is on strike. Amir will open the attack#08:10 PM: Innings break! Join us after the break.#08:08 PM: Its all over. OUT! India bundle out Pakistan for 162 runs. Bumrah fired it right into the blockhole, a yorker he’d swear by to clean up even the best. A wonderful effort from Indian bowlers. Except for Malik and Babar Azam’s partnership, Pakistan never looked in the game. India won’t mind chasing 163 on this pitch.#08:02 PM: OUT! Wicket number nine for India. Bhuvneshwar takes his third. Well nobody wants to hang around and Pakistanis are self-imploding. #08:00 PM: Score after 42 overs: Pakistan 160-8; Amir 16(21); Hasan Ali 1(2)#07:58 PM: Hasan Ali, right handed bat, comes to the crease. India would look to continue attacking and wrape things as early as possible.#07:55 PM: OUT! Bumrah breaks the partnership between Faheem and Asif. Faheem was looking to go after it but couldn’t get the hold of it and the ball went high up in the sky. Dhawan takes an easy catch.#07:50 PM: Twitter Talks: “How many….how many…how many times tailender would come and score runs and won match for their team?????Disgusting to see this,” says Avinash.#07:44 PM: 150 up for Pakistan: Slowly and steady Faheem Ashraf and Amir are taking Pakistan towards a fighting total. Score after 39 overs: Pakistan 151-7; Faheem Ashraf 20(32); Amir 14(17)#07:40 PM: Score after 37 overs: Pakistan 141-7; Faheem Ashraf 14(25); Amir 10(12)#07:36 PM: Dropped! Chahal should have caught this as it wasn’t too hard. Faheem had chipped it straight back to the bowler but Chahal fails to hold on to it. That’s the third dropped catch of this match so far.#07:24 PM: OUT! And lightning strikes here as Dhoni removes Shadab’s bails in a flash. Third wicket of the match for Kedar Jadhav. He has used Pandya absence in the best way.  This was fired outside off and Shadab was outside his crease to go inside-out. Never take a risk when Dhoni is behind the stumps. Score after 33 overs: 121/7 #07:14 PM: Twitter Talks: “Anyone please talk to Indian team and tell them that please let Pakistan make some run otherwise India will finish the match in 20 overs,” says Niranjan Kumar#07:09 PM: Wicket maiden for Kedar Jadhav: Score after 29 overs; PAK 110-6; Faheem Ashraf 0(5); Shadab Khan 2(2)#07:05 PM: OUT! Indian man with the golden arm Kedar Jadhav removes Asif Ali, out Caught by Dhoni!! And with this Pakistan have started to falter. That was flatter and shorter outside off, the batsman went for the slash and edged it for the keeper to take it.#07:00 PM: OUT! Shoaib Malik is runout. After a poor show, Indian fielders have turned it around here. Malik wanted a single but Rayudu was too quick at it and hit it directly. Shadab Khan, right handed bat, comes to the crease.Fantastic run out by @RayuduAmbati! Direct hit to the non-strikers end and @realshoaibmalik must depart for 43! Pakistan in trouble on 100/5 – can they recover?#INDvPAK LIVE ➡️— ICC (@ICC) September 19, 2018#06:58 PM: Score after 26 overs: Pakistan 97-4; Shoaib Malik 41(65); Asif Ali 0(1)#06:55 PM: Injury update: Injury update – Hardik Pandya has an acute lower back injury.

He is able to stand at the moment and the medical team is assessing him now.Manish Pandey is on the field as his substitute #TeamIndia #AsiaCup— BCCI (@BCCI) September 19, 2018#06:50 PM: OUT! Manish Pandey takes a stunner to remove Sarfraz. What a catch! He balanced himself like a trapeze on a tight rope. That was heaved away, Pandey took it inches inside the ropes. There was momentum as he was still in motion and before going over the ropes, he tossed the ball upwards.#06:46 PM: High in the sky! Malik could not get the elevation and the ball went up and Bhuvneshar over ran and Malik survived once again. Kuldeep is furious as he had already started to celebrate.#06:44 PM: A tight over from Jadhav. Just off the over.

Can he provide another breakthrough?#06:39 PM: OUT! Kuldeep Yadav to Babar Azam, THAT’S OUT!! Bowled! Flights it above the eye-line and it dips to beat the batsman, who was advancing down the track. Kuldeep provides India a much-needed breakthrough. Skipper Sarfraz Ahmed comes to bat.#06:36 PM: Malik, Azam consolidates Pakistan: The Azam-Malik partnership has been looking comfortable – it’s now worth 82 runs – but Shoaib gets a reprieve, put down by Dhoni off Pandya on the last ball before drinks! Pakistan are 85/2.#06:27 PM: Score after 18 overs: Pakistan 73-2; Babar Azam 40(53); Shoaib Malik 31(39)#06:21 PM: Harduk Pandya is down! It looks something serious. The physio is out there to attend Hardik who continues to lie motionless with a lot of pain holding the hand of one of teammates. India will hope that this isn’t anything serious. The stretcher is coming for Hardik! He’s been escorted off the ground, not a good sight at all. Rayudu will complete the over.#06:18 PM: FOUR! Cracking stroke from Babar Azam. Rayudu did a good job but the ball stuck in his legs and kissed the boundary ropes. Pandya gave a lot of width and Azam crashes the drive on the up through the covers.#06:13 PM: Pakistan making a fair comeback: Babar and Malik are doing a fine repair job for Pakistan after those early blows.#06:10 PM: Dropped! Can you believe it was Dhoni? Pandya is not happy at all. Was a really sharp take and was dying on him but you expect him to take these. Shoaib Akhtar in commentary asks if India dropped match as well. Too early to say that but Malik is going to be a pain in the back for India.#06:08 PM: Twitter Talks: “Shoaib Malik and Babar Azam wickets are important. Both are good players of spin. If we get these two wickets early we can wrap them up under 200,” says Shoeb Zama.#06:06 PM: A tight over from Chahal. He conceded just two runs. After 15 overs: Pakistan – 57-2; Shoaib Malik 25(34); Babar Azam 30(40)#06:04 PM: Six off Pandya’s over: Yuzvendra Chahal [1.0-0-7-0] is back into the attack. Rohit is rotating his wrist spinners.#06:03 PM: FOUR! This wasn’t a bad ball from Pandya at all. Azam played it cleverly. Perhaps just too wide outside off and he just hung back to open the bat face really late. Got it well wide of Dhoni and fine enough as it raced to the third man fence. 50-run partnership! #06:00 PM: 10 off the over: Score after 13 overs: PAK 49-2; Babar Azam 24(33); Shoaib Malik 23(29)#05:58 PM: SIX! That was a monstrous hit from Malik! He loves to face Indian bowling especially the spin. Doesn’t want to let Kuldeep settle and uses to feet to clout this over deep square leg.#05:56 PM: Kuldeep Yadav, left-arm chinaman, comes into the attack#05:55 PM: 7 runs in the over: Babar Azam smashes boundary on the last ball PAK 39/2 after 12 overs#05:51 PM: FOUR: Babar Azam smashes boundary on wide cover, PAK 32/2 after 11 overs#05:48 PM: Hardik Pandya gives just 2 runs: After 10 overs, PAK 25/2#05:44 PM: One run added to the over: After 9 overs, PAK 23/0 with Azam (12) and Malik(9) at crease#05:36 Eight of the over: Score after 7 overs: Pakistan 20-2; Babar Azam 10(18); Shoaib Malik 8(8)#05:34 PM: Consecutive boundaries: Pakistan is getting started. Back of a length delivery outside off for Azam, he got enough width and slapped it off the front foot. He beat the cover for four.#05:33 PM: FOUR! A full ball around off by Bhuvneshwar and Azam leaned forward played it straight down the ground past Bhuvneshwar’s left. #05:30 PM: Eight off the over: Score after 6 overs: Pakistan 12-2; Shoaib Malik 8(8); Babar Azam 2(12)#05:27 PM: Bumrah to Shoaib Malik, FOUR:  First boundary for Pakistan. They needed this to ease the pressure. Nice juicy half-volley outside off, Malik leaned forward and punched it through the covers quite gloriously.#05:22 PM: Score after 5 overs: Pakistan 4-2; Babar Azam 1(10); Shoaib Malik 1(4)#05:20 PM: Bhuvneshwar to Fakhar Zaman, THAT’S OUT!! Caught!! Fakhar Zaman, the hero of that Champions Trophy triumph in 2017, is gone for a nine-ball duck. It’s not a no-ball, no. Bumrah’s maiden over put pressure on Pakistan, Zaman panicked and tried to pull it but the ball went up high in the sky and Chahal took a wonderful catch running opposite.

In a remarkable performance, the 16-year-old Jeremy, who is competing in group B of the 67Kg men’s event, smashed the Youth World and Asian records in snatch, clean and jerk and total lift with an effort of 297kg (134kg+163kg) to be placed second in his group behind Pakistan’s Talha Talib, who lifted 304kg (140kg+164kg).     The final standings for the men’s 67kg event will be known after group A competition on Monday.     Jeremy, in fact, broke 15 records in total, combining national and international marks. He smashed six international records — three youth world and three youth Asian — and nine national records — three youth national, three junior national and three senior nationals.RELATED     The Mizoram weightlifter pulled off clean lifts in two of his three attempts in snatch (130kg, 134kg) to set a new youth world record. The earlier youth world record was also in Jeremy’s name when he had lifted 131kg in the EGAT Cup in Thailand in February.     Jeremy then lifted more than double his body weight (157kg, 163kg) in two successful attempts in the clean and jerk, and in the process obliterated Kazakhstan weightlifter Saikhan Taisuyev’s youth world record of 161kg.     It was Jeremy’s personal best and nine kg more than his 288kg youth world record effort in the EGAT cup, where he won the silver medal.      It was his only second international competition in 67kg after the international federation added this weight category last year for the Olympic Games and other events.     Jeremy also smashed the 67kg national senior record in snatch, clean and jerk, and total lift. He smashed his own snatch record of 131kg while he erased Gulam Navi’s clean and jerk record of 160kg to better his own total lift record of 288kg. The Asian Championships is a gold level Olympic qualifying event, the points from which will be counted when the final rankings for Tokyo 2020 cut are done.      Jeremy had won a gold in the Buenos Aires Youth Olympics in October last year in the 62kg category with a total lift of 274kg (124+150).last_img read more

Eric Dungey unable to jumpstart offense after returning from helmet-to-helmet hit

first_img Published on October 24, 2015 at 5:59 pm Contact Sam: | @SamBlum3 Facebook Twitter Google+ Eric Dungey scrambled out of what looked like a sure-fire sack and turned it into a 3-yard gain on the first play of the second half. But Syracuse’s starting quarterback lay flat on his stomach after the play, his arms at his side, his palms facing upward, not moving.For a moment, he was motionless following helmet-to-helmet contact. Then he popped back up to his feet as trainers came out to make sure he would be evaluated before taking another snap.“He didn’t throw it — he was supposed to throw it to the right,” SU offensive coordinator Tim Lester said. “And he didn’t hand it. So he just started taking off running. It wasn’t a good decision.”Dungey missed the end of the three-and-out drive as he was taken to the locker room to be evaluated. Zack Mahoney, who started the LSU game on Sept. 26, came in. Dungey was back out on the field for the following drive following yet another helmet-to-helmet scare.He finished with 210 passing yards on 21-of-30 attempts. He threw two touchdowns, had two interceptions and was not sacked in Syracuse’s (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) 23-20 loss to No. 25 Pittsburgh (6-1, 4-0) on Saturday afternoon in the Carrier Dome.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“I took a pretty big hit, but I was good and just ready to get back out there,” Dungey said. “Just had to take a second to make sure everything was working.”Later in the quarter Dungey threw interceptions on two consecutive plays. The first one over the middle that Pitt linebacker Matt Galambos picked off was one that Lester said Dungey had a shot to complete if he had thrown a slightly better pass.Dungey only completed six passes in the second half for a total of just 71 yards.Still, SU head coach Scott Shafer said Dungey looked good coming back out following his time in the locker room.Against Central Michigan on Sept. 19, Dungey was hit on a targeting penalty and missed a game and a half. When SU played Virginia on Oct. 17, he took two more hits to the head.“Obviously, we are hypersensitive to our guys getting hit and not getting up,” Shafer said. “He popped right up and wanted to go right back in, but our medical staff did a nice job.” Commentslast_img read more
