UHV Women’s Soccer Looks For First Win

Rough start to the season so far for UHV women’s soccer.
In their first two games of the season, both in Oklahoma, the Jaguar women first lost to 13th-ranked Oklahoma Wesleyan, 4-0, last Saturday. Two nights later, the UHV women lost 3-1 to 20th-ranked University Of Science And Arts Of Oklahoma. Two of the players told me how well their team played in those losses.
Said center midfielder Lauren Leslie, “I feel we matched the intensity well, especially in the first match. I feel they were really two good games to get us ready for our home games this weekend.” Said defender Katy Castanuela, “We came out strong but we fell off more towards the end. It wasn’t our best performance but it wasn’t our worst. It was just a rough game that we had that day.”
UHV soccer’s first home games of the season come Friday afternoon at the UHV Cage against Mid America Christian. Ladies first at 1:00.

MADRID (AP) – Real Madrid says its operating revenue for 2017-2018 reached 750.9 million ($871 million), 11 percent more than the previous year.

The figure, which doesn’t include gains from the transfers of players, represents an increase of more than 76 million euros ($88 million), the largest rise for the club in a financial year since 2000.

Madrid, which sold Cristiano Ronaldo to Juventus for more than 100 million euros ($116 million) in July, won its third straight Champions League title last season. The Spanish powerhouse also won FIFA’s Club World Cup and the European and Spanish Super Cups. Its basketball team won the Euroleague and the ACB League.

Madrid said Thursday the results helped produce “increased revenues, but also greater expenses, particularly in terms of bonuses to sports personnel.”

The club said it has no debt, with the net figure negative for the third consecutive year.
