Garrett Handed Indefinite Ban, Morant Shows Out For Grizzlies In Jazz Win, Team USA Men’s Soccer Gets Canada Revenge

Grace Higgins | November 16th, 2019

You’d like to wake up and see some good news or read about a good game that took place from the night before most days, but that’s just not how Saturday is going to be- this week at least. News had come down from the NFL on Friday that Myles Garrett- who had clubbed Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Mason Rudolph in the head with his very own helmet- has been given an indefinite ban. This means he will miss the remaining six games of the season and will also miss the playoffs is the Cleveland Browns somehow manage to make it there. It’s also been made clear that he will have to meet with Commissioner Roger Goodell next year before he can be reinstated for next season- hence the indefinite part. Browns defensive tackle Larry Ogunjobi got a one-game suspension for pushing Rudolph on the ground after the helmet hit, while Steelers’ center Maurkice Pouncey received a three-game ban for his kick to the head of Garrett in a scene that was appalling and, quite frankly, disgusting.


Whenever the ‘new’ guy takes on the old guy in sports, it’s an interesting battle. That’s what took place on Friday night when Ja Morant the Memphis Grizzlies took on Mike Conley and the Utah Jazz. Morant, who was the first round pick of the Grizz in the draft, led the home team to improve their record to 5-7 by posting 25 points and dishing out eight assists in a 107-106 win. Dillon Brooks also chipped in with 20 of his own on the evening to help them grab a win. The Jazz saw Conley put up 15 in the defeat, while fellow guard Donovan Mitchell led all scorers with 29. Morant had one behind-the-back move that utterly destroyed the Jazz ahead of a finish at the rim, underlining just why he was taken so highly in the draft to begin with.

After a humiliating 2-0 loss to Canada in Toronto last month, the United State Men’s soccer team needed to right the ship in their CONCACAF Nations League rematch on Friday night. They wasted little to no time doing just that, either, quickly seizing control in the second minute when Jordan Morris converted a chance. Gyasi Zardes then scored in the 23rd minute only to be followed by Aaron Long 11 minutes later, making it 3-0 to the USA. Steven Vitoria scored for the Canucks in the 72nd, but Zardes restored the three-goal lead in the 89th minute to seal the score at 4-1. As a result of the win, the US are now in control of their own destiny in the group. A win over Cuba in four days time means they will advance to the semi-finals.
