USA Truck Announces Executive Appointments
The United States women’s soccer team will face New Zealand in a pair of exhibitions next month, a rematch of their meeting in last year’s Olympic quarterfinals. The Oct. 27 game at Candlestick Park will be the first time the U.S. women have played in San Francisco in their 28-year history. The teams will then travel to Columbus, Ohio, for a game on Oct. 30. The United States is 9-1 against New Zealand, including a 2-0 victory in the quarterfinals of the 2012 Olympics. The Americans went on to win their third straight gold medal in London and are currently the top-ranked team in the world. “New Zealand is a much-improved side over the past few years,” said U.S. head coach Tom Sermanni, who saw quite a bit of the Kiwis during his two stints as head coach of Australia. “Qualifying for World Cups and Olympics have helped them significantly, and now they are a very composed and competitive team that plays with a great deal of confidence.” The United States Soccer Federation also announced that it will play Australia in an exhibition game on Oct. 20 at San Antonio’s Alamodome. The top-ranked U.S., the defending Olympic champion, is 9-0 in previous indoor matches. The Americans beat the Matildas 2-1 and 6-2 last year in the final two matches under coach Pia Sundhage, who left to coach her native Sweden. She was succeeded by Tom Sermanni.
USA Counts On ‘Modern Family’ To Draw Wider Crowd
September 22, 2013 HOUSTON Giles Barnes and Boniek Garcia scored two goals apiece to lead the Houston Dynamo to a 5-1 victory over Chivas USA on Saturday night. Also Barnes recorded his second two-goal game of the season, and Garcia scored his first goals this year to give Houston consecutive wins for the first time since July 6 and 13. Will Bruin also scored for Houston. Eric Avila scored for Chivas, which is winless in 13 consecutive road games (0-11-2). The Dynamo its season high in goals to solidify its hold on fourth place in the East, two points behind third-place Montreal. Chivas USA already had been eliminated. Houston dominated the first half and Barnes teamed up with Brad Davis on the Dynamo’s fifth corner kick of the half. Davis bent a perfect kick to the top of the penalty area and Barnes jumped above the Chivas defense. Barnes flicked Davis’ feed down and into the net past goalie Dan Kennedy. Avila leveled the score in the 50th minute when he headed a rebound past Tally Hall. Carlos Alvarez took the first shot, but it bounced off the near post and went right to Avila, who scored easily. The Dynamo responded four minutes later with Barnes’ second goal of the game. Ricardo Clark fed Barnes, who ran toward the net and drew Kennedy away from the post. Barnes slipped his shot into the net for his eighth goal of the season. Bruin made it 3-1 in the 63rd minute and Garcia scored in the 80th and 90th minutes, with the second coming on a penalty kick.
The network is maintaining its ties to hour-long dramas, said McCumber, which often come with comic overtones. So certain are USAs operators of Modern Familys draw that they are putting it on most weeknights for long stretches of time much in the same way Time Warner-owned rival TBS has employed The Big Bang Theory to draw audiences during prime time to create a potential viewer base not only for 11 p.m. talk show Conan but an ongoing slate of original comedies. Modern Family will air five nights a week: 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. Tuesdays; 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Wednesday and Thursday; 8 p.m. to 10 p.m. Friday; and 9 p.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday. That represents 22 episodes of the program roughly a seasons worth of shows in a seven-day span.
