HUNGARY: Pick Szeged demolish Csurgo!

first_imgShareTweetShareShareEmailCommentsThree weeks before their annual super-match against Veszprém, Pick Szeged hosted last year’s bronze medalist Csurgó on Saturday. The guests strengthened their squad in the summer and were hoping to cause a major upset but instead they suffered a heavy defeat.The first five minutes produced the only real excitement in the match as goals came quickly from both sides and Szeged were unable to gain a serious lead (5th minute 3-2). This all changed when Szeged’s brilliant playmaker Mindegia scored five times in 14 minutes and the difference slowly began to grow. But the man of the match in this period was clearly Roland Mikler who showed incredible skills and his saving percentage was well over 40%. By the end of the first half Szeged had already decided the fate of the match  and went to the locker room with a comfortable lead (Half-time 16-10).In the first minutes of the second half things went from bad to worse for the guests as it took only a little more than six minutes for Pick to reach a 10-goal difference (37th minute 21-11). The score then got stuck at 23-15 for seven minutes. Tatai made sure the guests couldn’t  score but due to a long blackout in attack and several technical mistakes Pick players didn’t score either. Garcia Parrondo’s goal in the 50th minute (24-16) opened the final phase of the match. He was also the one who scored the best goal of the match after a fantastic assist from Mindegia. Vranjes’s goals concluded the match thus reaching the biggest difference.Pick Szeged-Csurgó 32:20 (16:10)Best scorers: Mindegia 5, Ilyés 4 / Szöllősi 5Text: Péter ButtyPhoto: hartza0 6.

Weather, stocks drop may take a toll on January auto sales

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr by. Tom KrisherAuto sales this year are supposed to be the best since 2007, but they may have gotten off to a slow start in January.Frigid temperatures and a barrage of snowstorms over much of the U.S. kept some buyers from showrooms. Some dealers felt the pinch from the cold shoulder.“I’d say flat is a generous summation of the month,” said Timothy “Bruce” Detweiler, dealer principal of a Buick-GMC dealer in Masontown, Pa., about 50 miles south of Pittsburgh, where temperatures were near or below zero for several straight days. “When you go three days when no one comes on the lot, it’s a little tough to be up to average.”Last year, U.S. sales rose 8 percent, or by 1.1 million vehicles, to 15.6 million. With old cars needing to be replaced, abundant low-interest financing and exciting new vehicle introductions, many analysts are predicting sales this year of more than 16 million — a return to pre-recession levels. But the rate of growth is expected to slow a bit. continue reading »last_img read more
