Rio -- The Indian womens archery team lost to Russia in the quarterfinals, going down 25-23 in a shoot-off at the Rio Olympics on Sunday.The Indian team, consisting of Deepika Kumari, Laxmirani Majhi and Bombayla Devi, won two sets to level scores at 4-4 before losing the shoot-off, which had all the archers from both teams firing an arrow each.It was a heartbreaking exit for India, who fought back after a bumpy start against the world champions. After scoring just 48 of the possible 60 points to concede the first set, they responded with a vastly improved showing in the next two.The Russians, who scored 55 points to take the first set, dropped their level only by a whisker but the Indian girls were quick to swoop in. Two perfect tens among their six shots in the set and a score of 53 meant the match was now on level terms. Each set win is awarded with two points and the teams were now tied 2-2.In the third set, the Indian charge clearly rattled the Russians who had their worst set of the match, slipping to just 50 points. With Indias talisman Deepika Kumari finding her verve and Bombalya Devi also nailing a perfect ten, India took the set and with it led the contest. Even a draw in the final set would have been enough to ensure qualification for the semifinals.However, urged on by a vociferous corner, the Russian girls started strongly at this make or break stage. Despite Deepika and Laxmi scoring perfect tens once each in the set, they went down by a two point margin and the match now reached a crescendo.Each of the archers had one shot each with the sum total counting for victory. Previous scores counted for nothing and the Russians threw the early challenge by scoring a perfect ten. Bombalya missed her mark to hit a 7, putting India immediately on the back foot. A 6 by Russias second archer gave the Indians a window of opportunity and Laxmi responded with an 8.The third Russian archer hit a 9 leaving Deepika with the unenviable task of hitting bullseye to ensure a tie and keep India alive. She could only manage an 8 and with it, a disconsolate Indian team exited the event, much to the dismay of a robust Indian support group at the venue.?Of the 231 points scored by India, Bombayla shot 79, Laxmirani 75 and Deepika 77 points respectively.It is disappointing, but it is also confidence-boosting since Russia is a strong team, Bombayla later told ESPN. It will help us improve our performance in the future. Competing at the Olympics is a big deal. Reaching the quarterfinals is a huge improvement from our previous performances.The event was staged at the Sambodromo, where the annual carnival in Rio begins from. The venue itself is pretty rudimentary, with unkempt approach roads and staircases, but the bewitching backdrop more than compensates for it. The competition was held on an overcast day with dark, though not menacing clouds lurking as the quarterfinals got underway.Two of the Indian girls, Deepika and Bombayla, were part of the team that put in a dismal performance at London four years ago, where the winds at the Lords cricket ground torpedoed their campaign. They arrived in Rio better prepared, but the coach Purnima Mahato felt that the conditions did not make it easy for them.?We were trailing 0-2 at the start of the day and managed to make it 4-2 later on. But the wind was quite strong when it was our turn in the final stages. Even the spectators could tell it was making it difficult, she said.?You have to readjust your aim according to the force and the direction of the wind. It was difficult to keep the bow-hand steady.The archers will now compete in the individual events that begin on Monday.? Austin Watson Jersey .

After Mondays hard-fought loss, the wait seemed longer than usual. Getting set to go their separate ways for a short Christmas break, the Raptors coach credited his team for their effort on a seemingly impossible three-game road trip, urging them to build on that success when they get back to work at the end of the week.

Collaros also started Torontos 23-20 regular-season finale loss to Montreal — Ray didnt dress because the Argos had already clinched first in the East Division — but was one of three quarterbacks to play that day.

Lombardi, the grandson of former Green Bay Hall of Fame coach Vince Lombardi, has been an offensive assistant on Sean Paytons New Orleans staff since 2007. EAST LANSING, Mich. -- Just over a month after being held to single digits by an FCS team, Northwestern has solved a lot of problems offensively.Justin Jackson rushed for 188 yards and two touchdowns, and the Wildcats moved the ball almost at will after a slow start, beating Michigan State 54-40 on Saturday night to hand the Spartans their fourth straight defeat.Clayton Thorson threw for 281 yards and three TDs for the Wildcats, who rallied from an early 14-0 deficit. Michigan State (2-4, 0-3 Big Ten) is now mired in its longest losing streak in coach Mark Dantonios 10 seasons at the helm.Northwestern has won three of four since starting the season with losses to Western Michigan and Illinois State. The Wildcats managed only seven points against Illinois State, but that seems like a long time ago now that theyve scored 38 against Iowa and 54 on the defending Big Ten champions.Our guys have really been grinding, Northwestern coach Pat Fitzgerald said. Earlier in the year we werent a very good team. ... We could either pout and feel sorry for ourselves and start to point fingers, or we could just stay on the grind and keep the pedal down.The Spartans hadnt lost four in a row since 2006, and this was the most points theyd allowed since a 56-21 loss to Wisconsin in 2003.Northwestern held Michigan State to 3 yards of offense in the second quarter.Theres no easy fix, Dantonio said.The Spartans made a change at quarterback for this game, starting redshirt freshman Brian Lewerke instead of Tyler OConnor, but Michigan States problems extend well beyond one position.The Spartans went back to OConnor in the third quarter, and he threw for 281 yards and three touchdowns, but Michigan State couldnt stop Northwestern (3-3, 2-1) with any consistency.Solomon Vault returned a kickoff 95 yards for a touchdown late in the third quarter to put the Wildcats up 40-31, and the Spartans never made it closer after that.Michigan State is off to its worst start after six games since 1994, when the Spartans were 2-4 and later forfeited away the wins.TAKEAWAYSNorthwestern: The Wildcats have to be encouraged by the ease with which they shrugged off an early deficit Saturday, and although the secondary was beaten for a couple long touchdowns in the second half, Northwestern will win itts share of games if it can keep creating big holes for Jackson.ddddddddddddIt was a good one today, but I think were just showing what we can do, Thorson said. Passing the ball, running the ball, everything.Michigan State: Dantonio shook things up by starting Lewerke at quarterback, then watched his defense give up so many yards and points it didnt really matter who was throwing passes for Michigan State. The Spartans were a mess on defense and still dont block well enough on offense to put together many sustained drives.Its almost like everybodys at a loss for words, OConnor said. We feel like weve been saying everything that we think we need to fix and working as hard as we can to fix it, and everybody understands that we need to get better.OConnor did do his best to reclaim the quarterback spot with his work late in the game.NEW FACELewerke had attempted only four passes this season before becoming the first Michigan State freshman to start at quarterback since Stephen Reaves in 2004. Lewerke opened the scoring with a 15-yard touchdown pass to Josiah Price in the first quarter, but the offense bogged down again in the second.Dantonio was noncommittal about his quarterback situation afterward.I thought both guys obviously did some good things, and both guys obviously did some things theyd like to have back, Dantonio said. So well look at it and evaluate it.TOUGH STARTMichigan State took a 14-0 lead in the first quarter when Justin Layne scored on a 43-yard interception return. That was the last touchdown the Spartans scored for a while.We knew that they were going to try and knock us out early. Their backs are against the wall, Fitzgerald said. We basically got what we expected, and it was disappointing with our start, but I really loved the way our guys responded. We didnt flinch.UP NEXTNorthwestern: The Wildcats host Indiana next weekend.Michigan State: The Spartans play at Maryland on Saturday night. If you dont count games forfeited from 1994, the last time Michigan State lost five games in a row within one season was when the Spartans dropped their first five in 1991.---Follow Noah Trister at www.Twitter.com/noahtrister Wholesale Jerseys Wholesale Black NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys Free Shipping China NFL Gear Youth NFL Jerseys Wholesale Discount Jerseys Jerseys From China ' ' '
