Bournemouth 2-1 Manchester United: Josh King goal sends Cherries into dreamland

first_img Josh King celebrates his winner 1 Josh King scored against his former club as Bournemouth followed up victory over Chelsea by beating Manchester United at Dean Court.Junior Stansilas opened the scoring directly from a corner after little more than 90 seconds.Marouane Fellaini then drew the game level with a scrappy equaliser before half time.However, King settled the game with a goal which United will be disappointed to concede, meaning Louis van Gaal’s side have now gone five games without a win in all competitions.Both of Manchester United’s full backs Guillermo Varela and Cameron Borthwick-Jackson were making their first Premier League starts in a depleted defence which had been so solid this season.It was an incredible start to the game when, after only two minutes, Stanislas whipped a right-footed corner straight over the head of David De Gea to give Bournemouth the lead.United nearly fired straight back with a goal of their own but they were twice denied as Artur Boruc pulled off two point-blank saves from Fellaini and Paddy McNair.Van Gaal’s injury list got longer midway through the first half when Jesse Lingard limped off to join the likes of Chris Smalling and Wayne Rooney on the treatment table.Anthony Martial should have equalised on 18 minutes when he was gifted the ball on the edge of the box but he sloppily dragged his shot wide of Boruc’s right hand post.De Gea then made a world-class stop of his own to deny King when the former Manchester United youth prospect tried to round the goalkeeper.The Red Devils were finally level on 23 minutes when Memphis Depay did well to take the high ball down on his chest before seeing his shot saved, only for Fellaini to bundle in the rebound while standing on his knees.However, eight minutes into the second half and the Cherries were ahead again and again it was from a corner.The ball was fired in low and King peeled away on the edge of the six-yard box to stroke home against his old club.Glenn Murray really should have settled the game when he waltzed through the United defence but, with only De Gea to beat, the former Crystal Palace man inexplicably launched the ball into space.Martial nearly grabbed an equaliser as the game wore on as he jinked through the Bournemouth defence with bodies flying at his feet to try and halt him before, like Murray, he scooped the ball over the bar.Bournemouth looked the more likely of either side to get the fourth goal of the evening but it remained 2-1 to give the Cherries only their second win in 10 Premier League games.last_img read more

Skyview grad Ashley Nelson finds adventure in Antarctica

She’s pursued that goal ever since.Last summer, Nelson’s passion for ichthyology — the study of fish — compelled her to travel more than 8,000 miles from her studies at the University of Oregon in Eugene, Ore., to spend five months as a research assistant at Palmer Station, Antarctica.It was a long way from home for the 2009 graduate of Skyview High School.Nelson’s primary thesis teacher first told her about the Antarctica opportunity and said: “It sounds right up your alley.”When Nelson, 23, told her parents that she could spend five months researching icefish in Antarctica, but it would mean graduating a few months later than planned, her mom, Karen Nelson, said: “Go for it! It’s a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.”In May, Nelson flew to Santiago, Chile, and then to Punta Arenas, at the country’s southern tip, at the foot of the Chilean Andes. There she was outfitted with gear and clothing needed to withstand the extreme winter weather of Antarctica.last_img read more
