Rio -- A nervy India squandered a one-goal advantage as they allowed Canada to stage a fightback with a late strike and earn a 2-2 draw in their final mens hockey pool game.India struck through Akashdeep Singh and Ramandeep Singh in the 33rd and 41st minutes, while for Canada, Scott Tupper scored twice, both times converting penalty corners.?India, who had already qualified for the last eight, ended the group phase with two wins, two losses and a draw, collecting seven points.?Going by form and world rankings, India were the overwhelming favourites against Canada, and as expected, they started on a bright note. They created numerous scoring chances but failed to get past the stout Canadian defence led by the goalkeeper David Carter, who made three saves to deny India.?Canada, on the other hand, played deep on their own half and depended mainly on counter attacks. India had lucky escape on at least two occasions when the Canadians pressed hard from counters.India dominated the opening two quarters and created their first real scoring chance in the eighth minute, but Nikkin Thimmaiahs reverse hit from close range was blocked by Carter. Five minutes later, Carter once again came to his sides rescue by coming off the line to deny Nikkin.India soon secured their first penalty corner but VR Raghunaths effort was blocked by a charging defender. Canada then had the best opportunity to take the lead from a counter attack when an unmarked Matthew Guest found himself in one-on-one situation with Sreejesh but his reverse hit just went wide of the goal, much to the relief of the Indians.India had another chance to score, in the 18th minute, when Manpreet Singh and SK Uthappa combined well to enter the Canadian circle but once again, Carter brilliantly saved the formers reverse shot.Minutes later, India were dealt a big blow when SV Sunil was stretchered off the pitch after he sustained an injury by crashing against the sign boards while pressing for an attack.Nikkin missed his third chance soon when he just pushed wide after being fed by Sardar Singh. The Indians had another opportunity to break the deadlock four minutes from half time, but Rupinder Pal Singhs try from their second penalty corner was saved at the goal-line by Canada captain Scott Tupperas.India came out with more urgency after the change of ends and took the lead two minutes into the third quarter from their third short corner, as Akashdeep scored off a rebound after Harmanpreet Singhs initial low flick was saved by Carter.But Indias joy was short-lived as seconds later, Tupper equalised for Canada, converting their first penalty corner.The equaliser didnt affect India, though, as they pressed hard in search of goals and managed to restore their lead in the 41st minute through Ramandeep, who, lurking in front of the Candian goal, smartly defelcted in a defence-spliting diagonal pass from Raghunath.Canada soon earned their second penalty corner but Tuppers flick was saved by an alert Sreejesh. Leading 2-1, India were dominating the proceedings but they conceded an unnecessary penalty corner in the last 10 minutes of the fourth quarter.In an effort to commit himself too much while defending, Nikkin committed an unnecessary foul outside the cirle which not only resulted in a suspension for him but also gave away another short corner to the Candians and Tupper was up to the task, scoring his second goal of the match.Desperate for three full points to seal a third-place fininsh in Pool B, India went all out attacking thereafter and even withdrew Sreejesh for an additional forward in the last three minutes, but they failed to break the resolute Candian defence.

Stephen Curry 2 Shoes For Sale .Y. -- Sabres forward Drew Stafford has witnessed plenty of turmoil during his eight seasons in Buffalo. A new report examining leadership positions in top international sports organizations points to a significant lack of female representation, especially at the top levels.?The 2016 International Sports Report Card on Women in Leadership Roles was published by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport (TIDES) at the University of Central Florida on Wednesday.The study, TIDES first report card on representation of women in leadership roles in international sport, gave the International Olympic Committee (IOC) a D+ for representation of women in leadership roles, while international federations -- FIFA (1.5 percent), International Ice Hockey Federation (0 percent) -- and regional zone confederations each received an F. The United States Olympic Committees B- was the highest mark awarded.The IOCs calls for gender equality across sport have had no teeth, said Richard Lapchick, primary author of the report. The international federations must improve the percentage of female representation. It is unacceptable that only 5.7 percent of international federation presidents, 12.2 percent of vice presidents, and 13.1 percent of executive committee members are women.As the number of women competing in international competition has increased, their representation in leadership roles has lagged. There are only two women presidents of international federations, and women fill only 12.2 percent of vice president positions..dddddddddddd While the United States delegation is sending more women to the Olympics than any other nation in history, the USOC has women represented in only 31 percent of governance roles.Even so, when compared to data from previous TIDES reports, that is less than the percentage of women in professional roles in the league offices of the NBA, MLB, MLS, the WNBA and at the NCAA headquarters, Lapchick said.Americans Anita DeFrantz and Angela Ruggiero are members of the 90-member IOC executive committee. DeFrantz was named the first female vice president of that group in 1997Dr. Lapchicks exhaustive and powerful report reveals an important and sobering truth: While the number of women who play sports around the world has grown, the number who influence and lead key sports organizations remains dishearteningly low, said Val Ackerman, commissioner of the Big East Conference, and founding president of the WNBA.TIDES is part of the DeVos Sport Business Management graduate program in the University of Central Floridas college of business administration. TIDES releases the Racial and Gender Report Card as an assessment of hiring practices of women and people of color for a number of leagues, including the NBA, NFL, MLB, MLS and WNBA.?Lapchick periodically writes for and appears on ESPN.
