The Harvard Crimson men’s hockey team faced a familiar foe on a familiar stage Monday (Feb. 8) in the consolation game of the 58th Beanpot tournament. But with just one win in its past six games, struggling Harvard received no consoling from Northeastern (13-12-1), who took down the Crimson (6-14-3; 6-7-3 ECAC), 4-1.The matchup, which was the ninth time since 2000 that the Crimson faced the Huskies in the Beanpot, was the seventh time both teams clashed in the consolation game. But despite Harvard’s 22-16 all-time series record against Northeastern, the Crimson were unable to bounce back from an early two-goal deficit. The defeat followed a 6-0 loss to Boston College in the Beanpot opener on Feb. 1.“I give a lot of credit to Northeastern. I think they wore us down as the game went on,” said Harvard coach Ted Donato. “We started the game a little bit flat, and put ourselves in some tough situations.”The Crimson’s only goal came when a slap shot by freshman forward Conor Morrison found the back of the net at 11:13 into the second period. Although that pulled Harvard within a goal, the Crimson continued their Beanpot scoring woes going scoreless the rest of the game.“Tonight we had a couple chances early. We just weren’t able to get shots through,” said Donato. “I don’t think we were sharp on the power play, and I think at times we looked disorganized in what we were trying to do. We certainly were able to get the puck in control, but weren’t able to get shots in traffic and get second and third opportunities.”Despite their recent losses, the Crimson historically have closed the regular season with momentum after the Beanpot. Last season the Crimson went 4-0-2 in their remaining six games, and in 2008 Harvard closed the season 5-0-1.With four of the remaining six games at home, Harvard’s recent struggles will likely be forgotten with another strong finish to the season. The Crimson currently stand in eighth place, but four points behind fourth-place St. Lawrence.Harvard hosts Rensselaer Friday (Feb. 12) and Union on Saturday (Feb. 13). Both games start at 7 p.m.
Auckland Now 29 Sep 2011First Steve Crow had to can his Rugby World Cup Boobs on Bikes Parade because no one wanted it, now the porn king is being stripped of the venue for his Erotica Lifestyles Expo. After 12 years, Auckland’s ASB Showground will no longer play host the adult entertainment expo after a contract between the two parties ended. “Their contract expired and we’re not renewing it. The show had seen better days and had dropped off in popularity,” ASB Showground’s chief executive Mark Frankham said. Speaking at the Auckland Council’s culture arts and events forum on Tuesday, Auckland Agricultural, Pastoral and Industrial Shows Board chairman Dave Scott said the board, which owns the showground, had been trying for a long time to show Crow the door. “It’s taken us several years to move him out legally and we’ve forgone a bit of income to do that,” he said.http://www.stuff.co.nz/auckland/local-news/5700327/Crow-stripped-of-his-Erotica-venue

FORMER captain Michael Clarke has long been calling for Pat Cummins to become Australia’s next Test captain and now he wants the superstar to lead his country in all three formats.Clarke has suggested the end of 2020-21 might be an ideal time for Tim Paine, who alongside Justin Langer have led Australia’s recovery since the Cape Town ball-tampering scandal, to step down.Clarke also declared the end of this year’s T20 World Cup could be the right time for Aaron Finch to hand the reins over to Cummins.Langer has previously backed Paine to lead until at least the final of the world Test championship, at Lord’s in mid-2021, and Finch’s position is not considered in any jeopardy.The merits of Steve Smith reclaiming the captaincy have been publicly debated over the past year, with his leadership ban expiring at the end of this month.It was at the start of Australia’s scandal-laden tour of South Africa in 2018 that Clarke first publicly floated the idea of Cummins becoming Test skipper, long before Paine had assumed the role.Clarke, who captained Australia in 47 Tests and 74 ODIs, can now envisage the set of circumstances in which fast bowler Cummins is promoted to call the shots in all three national teams.“Tim Paine’s done a wonderful job, there’s no doubt about it, and I think he’s earned the right to continue to captain Australia until it’s time for him to retire,” Clarke said on Big Sports Breakfast.“Tim is 34 or 35 and I imagine he will be thinking about that after this Australian summer.“I imagine if Australia can win there (during a home series against India) that’s an ideal time for Tim to walk away on top.”Clarke added the team “needs one captain across all three formats” and the obvious candidate is Cummins.“He reads the game really well,” he said.“Yes, he’s an opening bowler but he can bat. He’s brilliant in the field.“He sees the game how a captain needs to.”Cummins, who endured a horror stretch on the injury front after an eye-catching Test debut at age 18 in 2011, has become remarkably resilient in recent years.Since March 2017, no paceman in the world has bowled more deliveries across all international matches.“There’s always been a lot of talk about a bowler being captain, and generally that’s because the bowlers get injured,” Clarke said.“Pat has shown that he’s fit, he’s healthy, and he can play all three formats.“His body has now matured into a position where he’ll be on the pitch as much as any batsman.”
