Super sub lifts Clarendon

first_imgSecond-half substitute Joel Sterling struck twice yesterday to hand Clarendon College a come-from-behind 2-1 win over ten-man Hydel High in the ISSA-FLOW Super Cup round-of-16 at Sabina Park. Hydel’s leading scorer, Nicholas Nelson, fired the St Catherine school ahead in the 22nd minute, however, Sterling, who has been sidelined with injury since the third game of the daCosta Cup season, slammed home the equaliser six minutes from time before adding the winner in the second half of extra time for the defending rural champions. Sterling, who was netting his seventh goal in five matches this season, said they never doubted they would win. “It (win) was expected, so it’s just the same feeling during and after (game) … . I always knew I could go on the field and do my best, and this (double strike) is normal,” he told The Sunday Gleaner. Hydel were reduced to ten men in the 90th minute when midfielder Howard Morris was ejected for a second caution. The first period of extra time failed to produce any real chances and it was a similar situation in the second half, until a moment of real brilliance from captain Seigel ‘Pele’ Knight. Clarendon’s Player of the Season in 2014, Knight, picked up a pass in the centre circle, eluded a tackle before slipping a beauty of a through pass into the path of Sterling, who made no mistake. “I saw the pass from way back, but I wasn’t sure if I should do it on the cricket pitch because I was sliding, but it went through and I was really happy,” Knight said afterwards. Winning coach, Paul ‘Tegat’ Davis, said they were always confident, and a few adjustments and the introduction of Sterling did the trick. “They (Hydel) got their chances and didn’t use them, but we knew we would get chances too, and we have this guy (Sterling) that can score goals and he came on and did wonders,” Davis commented.last_img read more

first_imgJoining the effort to fight against the deadly Ebola virus that is claiming lives across Liberia, the President and CEO of Morweh Energy Group Inc., Christopher Y.Neyor, has donated the amount of L$100,000 along with 50 buckets and sanitation materials to Liberia Crusaders for Peace to help fight the deadly Ebola Virus in other counties.Mr.Neyor made the donations of buckets, chlorine, Clorox among others, yesterday August 14, at the Head Quarters of the Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP) in Monrovia.“Our hearts are heavy with the Ebola epidemic that is destroying our people in the land.  People are sick and still have dead bodies in houses and no one to pay attention to them.“This is the intent of my visit to the LCP to help distribute those items to some counties in our country that are effected with this Ebola virus to help save the lives of other citizens in the country,” Mr.Neyor said.Discussing the danger of Ebola in the country Mr.Neyor, said it is time for all Liberians to join the fight against Ebola by putting aside politics and tribalism and focus to the real issue that is affecting the citizens.He meanwhile called on the National Task Force on Ebola to work tirelessly especially in saving the lives of those that are not affected and that they should also focus on those that are affected by providing food and treatment.“Because of the epidemic in the country, our people are afraid to go to hospitals. We still have major hospitals closed and moreover, dead bodies are staying two to four days in a home which is very dangerous to the health of the communities.“With this the National Task Force on Ebola  must be properly empowered with good human capacity, proper planning and implementations to help carry on their  duties.”Discussing some of his contributions to the fight  against Ebola in the country, Mr. Neyor disclosed that his organization earlier donated over L$200,000 to nurses for protective gear and pledged his organization’s support to LCP and the Liberian people to aid fight the  Ebola virus in the country.Receiving the donations on behalf of the Executive Director Amb.

Gor, AFC switch focus to continental football

first_imgGor Mahia began their season in emphatic fashion, blowing away Nakumatt FC 4-0 last Saturday in a match head coach Dylan Kerr believes should have had a bigger goal haul, but the tactician believes the result gives them a psychological edge ahead of Saturday’s game.“We should have had at least six goals in each half and I was a bit frustrated with the finishing. However, creating those many chances means we are doing something positive and we can improve that in training,” the coach said.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr shouts instructions during their KPL SUper Cup win over AFC Leopards in Nakuru on January 28, 2017. PHOTO/Timothy Olobulu“It gives us some boost of confidence and the players now see that many things are possible. This week we will work on a few areas of weakness and ensure we are very ready for Saturday,” the tactician further added.K’Ogalo will have a third feel this year of the Machakos Stadium on Tuesday when they play Sudanese champions Al Hilal in a friendly match and Kerr says he will give playing time to those he feels have not had enough time to prove their worth.“They have to show me that they want to be part of the team on Saturday and this is their chance. I already know most of the first team players but there are some especially the new ones who have not had quite the opportunity to show,” Kerr noted.Among those who are likely to earn starts include midfielder Cersidy Okeyo who came on as a sub against Nakumatt, Lawrence Juma and Bernard Ondiek who were all January arrivals at the club.AFC started their season with a 1-1 result against Posta Rangers but boosted their confidence with a 4-2 win over Al Hilal on Sunday.Head coach Robert Matano is looking on the brighter side of things, noting his team has been improving since their Super Cup loss to Gor Mahia.“The new players are integrating into the team very well and the most important thing is that as a team we are improving. I am confident in the players and we will get very good results this season,” added the experienced tactician.AFC Leopards players line up before the Kenyan premier League Super Cup clash against Gor Mahia on January 28, 2017 at Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium.

We don’t want to be too ambitious and set unrealistic targets. We go a game at a time and I am pleased that we could start with a win,” Ouna said.Sony on their side were left ruing the loss with head coach Salim Babu tearing down at the referee as well as the Camp Toyoyo pitch.“That field should not host a Premier League match because it is very small and below standard. Also, we were let down by very poor officiating because I simply couldn’t understand what the referee was doing the whole afternoon,” Babu fumed after the game.The slim win by Ouna’s men sees them start the season at eighth.KPL weekend results: Saturday: Ulinzi Stars 4 Zoo Kericho 2, Posta Rangers 1 AFC Leopards 1 (Afraha Stadium), Gor Mahia 4 Nakumatt 0, Chemelil Sugar 2 Tusker FC 0 (Chemelil Complex), Nzoia Sugar 0 Kariobangi Sharks 1 (Sudi Stadium, Bungoma), Wazito 1 Sony Sugar 0 (Camp Toyoyo).Sunday: Sofapaka 0 Bandari 3 (Narok Stadium), Thika United 0 Kakamega Homeboyz 1 (Thika Stadium), Vihiga United 1 Mathare United 2 (Bukhungu Stadium, Kakamega).0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr congratulates his players after their KPL Super Cup win over AFC Leopards in Nakuru on January 28, 2017.

NASA docks Dawn project

first_imgAn unmanned NASA spacecraft intended to visit two of the solar system’s largest asteroids will not launch this year, as the space agency deals with cost overruns and technical issues. The planned summer launch of the Dawn spacecraft has been indefinitely postponed, said Andrew Dantzler, director of NASA’s solar system division. The mission is managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Ca ada Flintridge. Mission managers were ordered to halt work on Dawn last fall while an independent review team led by the space agency’s Marshall Space Flight Center assessed the project. The team is expected to present its findings to NASA on Friday. Even if NASA gives Dawn the green light, it would take another year for engineers to finish routine testing of the spacecraft, said mission principal investigator Christopher Russell of UCLA. “It’s like running a relay race,” Russell said. “You’re on your last leg and the judges suddenly say, `Stop.’ You lose your momentum.” Dawn is part of a NASA program called Discovery, which seeks to explore the solar system on a shoestring budget. The program includes the Stardust mission, which last week returned to Earth with samples of comet dust. – Associated Press AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

COLEMAN NAMED MAN OF THE MATCH, BUT IRELAND BEATEN BY GREECE

first_imgDONEGAL’S Seamus Coleman was named Man of the Match at the Aviva Stadium this evening as Ireland lost 1-0 to Greece in a friendly.Giovanni Trapattoni finally gave youth a chance and while the defeat was disappointing, there is little doubt that young stars like Coleman hold the key to a brighter future for the Irish national side.Ciaran Clark, James McCarthy, James McClean and Robbie Brady from the start and Wes Hoolahan after the break, all played well. But Jose Holebas’ sweet 29th-minute strike was enough to win the game for the visitors.Ireland had strong claims for a first-minute penalty waved away by Israeli referee Eitan Shmuelevitz and defender Konstantinos Stafylidis could consider himself extremely fortunate not to be penalised.Ireland looked certain to take the lead with 10 minutes gone when full-back Seamus Coleman, whose combination with Brady proved a repeated threat down the right during the opening 45 minutes, collected the winger’s return pass and crossed.Cox had found a yard of space and climbed to meet the ball unopposed, but he was unable to hit the target with just keeper Orestis Karnezis to beat! But on 29 minutes Hoops man and Greek skipper Georgios Samaras turned Konstantinos Mitroglou’s pass into the path of Holebas, thumped the ball into the bottom corner.McCarthy almost dragged Ireland back into the game two minutes into the second half when Karnezis failed to hold his long-range shot, although Papastathopoulos prevented Doyle from converting the rebound and Cox’s follow-up was blocked.But while perspiration was not in short supply, inspiration was and the Irish failed to make the most of the possession they were allowed as the game passed the hour-mark with Greece’s narrow lead intact.Ward hacked a 69th-minute shot harmlessly across the face of goal after the Greeks had failed to clear a McClean free-kick, and Greece coasted to the final whistle and victory with few alarms. COLEMAN NAMED MAN OF THE MATCH, BUT IRELAND BEATEN BY GREECE was last modified: November 14th, 2012 by BrendaShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:BUT IRELAND BEATEN BY GREECECOLEMAN NAMED MAN OF THE MATCHlast_img read more

first_imgA serious Achilles problem sustained in October 2016 led to numerous operations and there were even fears he could lose his leg at one point.Cazorla, a hugely popular figure at the Emirates, was released at the end of last season and many thought he would call time on his career.But he has spent pre-season at Villarreal in his native Spain and, having battled back to fitness, has done enough to earn contract.The 33-year-old has penned a one-year deal with the option of a further 12 months at the club where he started his career.He told the club’s official website: “I feel like a footballer again, it’s really special.“It has been a really promising few months and the help from everyone during that time will remain with me for the rest of my life, and many have given me the strength to carry through.“Coming on in a match was almost unthinkable 20 months ago and now I just want to find the rhythm to play football regularly as it is what I love.” Santi Cazorla made 180 appearances for Arsenal Former Arsenal favourite Santi Cazorla has signed a deal with Villarreal following a successful trial.The Spaniard spent six years at Arsenal and a was key man for the club before injury curtailed his career.center_img 1last_img read more

Jose Mourinho is acting like Antonio Conte did last season, says Graeme Souness

first_img possible standings There have even been reports of tensions between Mourinho and vice-chairman of the club Ed Woodward as a result of the lack of activity.Comparisons can be drawn to the way Chelsea’s transfer window panned out last summer which led to Conte’s relationship with the club’s board breaking down.The Italian was eventually relieved of his duties at Stamford Bridge and Souness believes Mourinho could be going down a similar path. United have had a difficult start to the season Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is acting like former Chelsea manager Antonio Conte did last season, according to Graeme Souness.It’s been a frustrating summer for the Portuguese after United only made three signings this summer and were unable to get a deal done for either Harry Maguire or Yerry Mina. England’s most successful clubs of the past decade, according to trophies won REVEALED Writing in his column for The Times, Souness said: “Chelsea’s failure to defend their title or finish in the top four last season provides a cautionary tale for Manchester United in the current campaign.“It was obvious early on that Antonio Conte did not get his way with the players signed and was in a huff.“As a manager, you set the mood in training. If you’re a bear with a sore head with your players, they ­eventually won’t play for you.“Jose ­Mourinho has fallen out with Manchester United’s directors for the same reasons Conte did at Chelsea — not getting the players he wanted — and it is not a happy camp at Old Trafford. “They are both big managers who are used to getting their own way.
