TUESDAY MARCH 16 2021 SPORT 35 V1 - NTNE01Z01MA Arsenals Alexandre Lacazette slots home a penalty during his sides 2-1 win over Tottenham. Picture: AAP ARSENAL recovered from Erik Lamelas astonishing Rabona opener to beat 10-man Tottenham 2-1 in a dramatic north London derby despite the absence of exiled captain PierreEmerick Aubameyang. Lamela scored one of the greatest goals in Premier League history with an audacious strike in the first half at the Emirates Stadium. But the Tottenham forward went from hero to villain when he was sent off for a second booking after Jose Mourinhos side blew the lead. Martin Odegaard had equalised with a deflected effort just before halftime and Alexandre Lacazette sealed the points with a second-half penalty. Lamelas moment of genius was ruined by his red card and it was Arsenals day as it beat Tottenham for the first time in six games. AFP ARSENAL TRIUMPHS IN DERBY Milestone victory Snoop a Loop wins 50th race WELL played Snoop a Loop was a common theme at Winnellie Park on Sunday night when the grand old campaigner notched up the 50th win of his greyhound career. A total of 10 races were run and won in front of a big crowd who got plenty of value for their money with some close finishes. Steele Bolton once again grabbed the training honours with four wins, while Adam Poulters good run continued with a double and Simon Nathanael, Ron Phillips, Russell Savige and Andrew Lasker all had winners. The highlight was Snoop a Loops 50th win when he beat a good field of open sprinters, including kennel mates Pepperberry and Go Brandi who rounded out the placings. The son of Fernando Bale who is now over five and a half years of age with 156 career starts with 50 wins and 54 placings in what can only be described as a wonderful racing career. It has been a privilege to have him racing in the Top End and the way he won on Sunday night he is not finished yet. It was a night for the tough older campaigners. Rittos Hanger defeated a high-class field of open sprinters over 312m at start No.166 and Choice Way made it win No.24 approaching five years of age when winning ran a slick 18.37 seconds for the 312m. Black Rock came to Winnellie Park with nice interstate form but it has taken him a while to find his feet until recent times. He made it three straight wins on Sunday, winning over 537m by over six lengths and while it was a lower-class race, on that effort he must have an eye on the Easter Cup. There were a few other winners who caught the eye, including Aeroplane Rose who made a fine return from a lengthy lay-off and Motlop clearly has ability, breaking his maiden status in his second start. Others winners included Rockstar Jaimee who showed good early speed to lead and win well over 383m and Little Bolo returned from a spell and duly saluted. GREG ALDAM Kohli back in the runs INDIA skipper Virat Kohli revealed Indias managers had a chat about his batting form before his unbeaten 73 steered India to a seven-wicket win over England to level their T20 series. After Englands emphatic win in the first game, India came out all guns blazing for the second of the five matches. I had to shift the focus back to the basics, said Kohli. The management spoke to me about things, he added without giving details. Kerr scores hat-trick MATILDAS captain Sam Kerr got what I came to Chelsea for, after a stunning hattrick to inspire Chelsea to a 6-0 thumping of Bristol City in the English Womens League Cup final. Kerr was monumental in her team collecting the major piece of silverware, scoring in just the second minute to set the tone for proceedings at Vicarage Road. Its what I came to Chelsea for, Kerr said. It was a massive team performance. Curry lifts Warriors GOLDEN State star Stephen Curry celebrated his 33rd birthday with a 32-point performance that propelled the Warriors to a 131-119 win over the NBA-leading Utah Jazz and snapped a four-game skid. Curry got off to a sizzling start, connecting on 63 per cent of his shots in a 14-point first quarter in which the Warriors seized a lead they wouldnt relinquish. He finished 10-of-20 from the field with six threepointers. Its like that ageing wine, right? Curry said.
