Fabregas’ ban cut to one match

first_img A statement from Chelsea read: “The standard sanction would have been a three-match suspension. “However, following an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing earlier today, the club’s claim that a three-match suspension is excessive was successful. “Fabregas will therefore now only miss our final game of the season against Sunderland on Sunday and will be available for selection from the start of the 2015/16 campaign.” Fabregas was dismissed in the first half of Chelsea’s defeat at The Hawthorns after hitting Brunt on the head from 20 yards while referee Mike Jones spoke to Gareth McAuley and Diego Costa after they grappled in the area. A statement from the Football Association read: “A claim by Chelsea that the three-match suspension for Cesc Fabregas is excessive has been upheld by an Independent Regulatory Commission hearing. “Fabregas was dismissed for violent conduct during the West Bromwich Albion FC v Chelsea FC fixture on 18 May. The Regulatory Commission has reduced the Chelsea midfielder’s suspension to one match, to be served with immediate effect.” Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho questioned the dismissal after the game and called it “bizarre”. He said: “Where is the danger of the situation, where is the aggression in the situation to get the red card in a friendly game? Cesc Fabregas has had his three-match ban reduced to just one after Chelsea successfully argued the initial punishment was excessive. The Spain midfielder was sent off in Monday’s 3-0 defeat at West Brom after kicking the ball against Chris Brunt’s head during a break in play. He will now only miss Sunday’s final Barclays Premier League game against Sunderland, when champions Chelsea will lift the Barclays Premier League trophy. Press Association “I really don’t understand. I think (Darren) Fletcher was aggressive, he pushed him (Fabregas) in the chest because he is experienced and knows where he can push for a yellow card. He is much more aggressive than what Fabregas did. “For me a top referee, a stable, big personality and in control of the game, goes there, two or three words and it’s done. It’s a bizarre red card. “A three game ban for this? Harsh? Of course it’s harsh. Why does he have to explain? He doesn’t need to explain.” last_img read more

GSA girls out to defend state cross-country title

You can reach him via email at [email protected] Latest posts by Mike Mandell (see all) Bio Latest Posts Ellsworth runners compete in virtual Boston Marathon – September 16, 2020center_img BLUE HILL — Winning the first state championship in team history was a challenging feat for the George Stevens Academy girls’ cross-country team. Now that a banner commemorating it is hanging from the school gym, the Eagles are ready for what’s next.In 2016, the team spent the entire year battling injuries and fighting off other contenders. It wasn’t until the final week of the season — in the state championship meet no less — that it had its entire squad together, and the result was a historic title win.This year, everyone is healthy to enter the season, and with the first meet less than two weeks away, GSA is ready to carry over its success. With the exception of Bella Cimeno, the Eagles are returning each of their top athletes.“We’ve definitely caught lightning in the bottle with this group,” coach Erich Reed said. “These girls have battled through a lot, and having athletes with this mental toughness and talent come together at the same time is something you can’t take for granted.”This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThat group is now back as seniors rather than underclassmen. Mary Richardson, Eliza Broughton, Zeya Lorio, Tess Williamson and Mary Brenna Catus all enter their final years at GSA, and inexperience isn’t a concern — not that it ever was.George Stevens Academy’s Eliza Broughton runs during the Northern Maine regional cross-country championships Oct. 29 in Belfast. Broughton, who was one of GSA’s top-three runners last season, will return as a senior this year. FILE PHOTO“I don’t think we let the ‘young team’ stuff bother us [last year] because our team had still been running together a long time,” Broughton said. “What we did do was focus a lot on the things behind the scenes that people don’t see — looking at the mental aspect and not just the physical aspect.”Broughton, Richardson and Lorio frequently earned top-five finishes throughout the team’s historic 2016 campaign. Those runners had made a big impact for GSA in 2015 as well, but a change in the team’s approach prior to last season helped the trio achieve a new level of success.“We wanted to stay together in packs more at the beginning of races,” Richardson said. “People often think of cross-country as an individual sport, but when we stuck together on the course as a team early in those races, it paid off for us at the head of the pack over the long run.”The strategy worked. After a third-place finish at the Ellsworth Invitational to open the season, GSA posted a clean sweep of the top six at the Bucksport Invitational the following weekend.“The Bucksport meet was when people started to realize just how special this team was,” Richardson said. “We knew we were a tight-knit group and that we might have a big year, but that was the meet where it all came together.”As the year went on, GSA and Orono, another perennial contender, separated themselves from the rest of the field in Class C. At the conference championships, the Red Riots beat the Eagles on a tiebreaker when both finished with 32 points. Two weeks later, Broughton, Richardson and Lorio finished a respective second, third and fourth to give GSA a one-point win at the regional meet.That set up a showdown at the state championships Nov. 5. GSA’s star trio finished in the top five once again, and Eagles denied Orono’s bid at a fourth straight state championship with a nine-point win.“Orono is a big rival, and everyone in the state is always trying to beat them,” Richardson said. “Both teams had a lot of injuries and had to fight hard through them all year long, but we finally pulled it together and got healthy in time for the state meet.”The Red Riots will be a contender once again this year, and Mattanawcook Academy will also provide GSA with stiff competition. The former must replace top runners Hannah Steelman and Kassidy Dill, while the latter will return what is expected to be a strong junior class from last year’s squad.GSA will open its title defense Sept. 2 at the Ellsworth Invitational. Although the Eagles finished a respectable third at that meet last season, the team’s improvements over the course of the year has its runners thinking they can do even better this time around.“We did well [at the Ellsworth meet last year], but we did better in some of the other races,” Richardson said. “There’s definitely going to be another state championship on our minds, and that means we have to get off to a good start.” Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020 MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020last_img read more
