Man Utd midfielder suffers injury setback

first_img Pogba has played only eight times this season after having surgery in the autumn to correct an ankle problem. The 26-year-old’s comeback was then delayed by illness, meaning he did not resume training until mid-December.

Solskjaer said last month that Pogba would not be sold in January. The France international only made his comeback last month from an ankle injury that had kept him out since the end of September. “He’s injured. He’s feeling some discomfort in his ankle. He’ll be out for a few weeks,” said Solskjaer.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content7 Of The Wealthiest Universities In The WorldWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?5 Of The World’s Most Unique Theme Parks7 Inventions Created To Start Saving The World2020 Tattoo Trends: Here’s What You’ll See This YearA Guy Turns Gray Walls And Simple Bricks Into Works Of Art8 Things To Expect If An Asteroid Hits Our PlanetCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable WayWhy Do So Many Digital Assistants Have Feminine Names & Voices?What’s Up With All The Female Remakes?18 Cities With Neverending Tourist-FlowHere Are The Top 10 Tiniest Mobile Phones On The Planet!center_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Manchester United’s Paul Pogba is out for “a few weeks” with an ankle injury, says manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

West Genesee girls basketball wins twice at holiday tournament

first_imgSome tough results in December, including defeats to Baldwinsville and Liverpool, had left the West Genesee girls basketball team in need of some quality wins.And the Wildcats got them in the More Than A Game Tournament, starting Dec. 27 at SRC Arena with a 59-46 victory over Section V’s Fairport.The game was close until the Wildcats outscored the Red Raiders 17-7 in the fourth quarter. Meredith James earned 12 of her career-high 20 points at the free-throw line as Catie Cunningham had 15 points, with Molly Coyne getting seven points and Ellen Kearney six points.Far more important, in the long-term, was WG’s 53-40 victory over Rome Free Academy in the Dec. 28 final, since it matched up two area Class AA sides.A low-scoring first half saw the Wildcats gradually overcome the Black Knights’ early 14-8 lead. Then WG decided matters by dominating on both ends in the third quarter, stunning RFA with a 20-4 push.Cunningham led this time, pouring in 20 points as Molly Benetti stepped up with 13 points. Julia Logana added eight points as Tailyn Frost paced RFA with 14 points.Skaneateles played in the Chittenango Holiday Tournament and, after falling 66-51 to the host Bears in the opening round, recovered to beat Auburn 45-35 in the consolation game.Maddy Ramsgard (13 points), Kate Aberi (10 points), Tatumn Pas’cal (nine points), Lexi Cotttrill (eight points) and Maeve Canty (seven points) all scored well against Chittenango, but no one broke out the way Sarah Lanphear did for the Bears as she earned a game-high 18 points.Defense was the story against Auburn, with the Lakers limiting the Maroons to four points in the fourth quarter to gradually draw clear. Canty, with 18 points, and Ramsgard, with 12 points, accounted for most of the Skaneateles attack as Cottrill added eight points.Bishop Ludden was 5-1 and no. 13 in the state Class A rankings when it took on Class AA no. 15-ranked St. Mary’s, from the Buffalo area, last Saturday afternoon.The Gaelic Knights lost, 61-56, to the Lancers, who broke out of a 22-22 halftime tie by outscoring Ludden 23-16 in the third quarter. In defeat, Amarah Streiff had 21 points, with Lauren Petrie adding 17 points.That same day, Jordan-Elbridge was back on the court, seeking its first win of the season against Canastota, but took a 51-44 defeat to the Raiders.The Eagles led 34-32 going to the fourth quarter, only to have Canastota go in front, carried by Jessica Evans, who poured in 30 points, more than half her team’s outputNo one on J-E got close to Evans’ totals, though Kaley Jackson did have 13 points, with Mollie Yard adding 12 points as Gabby Smart finished with eight points.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Bishop Luddengirls basketballJ-EskaneatelesWest Geneseelast_img read more
