SCT title behind them, Colts focused on state tournament

first_img Christian Brothers Academy Unbeaten Christian Brothers Academy’s soccer team continued along with business as usual, winning an unprecedented eighth Shore Conference Tournament title, 4-0, over Holmdel on Oct. 30 at Neptune.“I think the players had a lot of confidence, but this was more of a business attitude,” said coach Dan Keane, whose veteran-laden Colts (19-0) repeated as SCT champions as the No. 1 seed. Defending NJSIAA Group III champion Holmdel, the No. 6 seed, fell to 16-3. “We have a very talented group who did what they needed to do. They were thinking now they have bigger things down the road in the states.”It was a more convincing victory for CBAthan in the earlier rounds when it beat Toms River North, 2-0, in the semifinals and pulled out a 2-1 comeback victory in overtime over Rumson-Fair Haven in the opening round. Those victories were sandwiched around a 6-2 quarterfinal victory over Point Pleasant Borough.CBA capitalized on breaks for three of its goals. Two “own” goals off CBA shots that deflected off Holmdel defenders found the back of the net, and Matt Jelinsky scored off a give-and-go from Alex Bialko for a 3-0 halftime lead. Both players replaced injured midfielders — Nick Villani, out the past two weeks with a high ankle sprain, and Scott Thomsen, who has a strain in the upper thigh.“They both had a great tournament. They’ve been in big spots this season,” Keane said of Jelinsky and Bialko.The coach expects Villani back in the lineup on Nov. 4 when CBA, the No. 1 seed in the NJSIAA Non-Public A South bracket, plays host to the winner of No. 8 seed Bishop Eustace vs. No. 9 seed Gloucester Catholic, which was played on Nov. 1. Keane will decide on game day whether Thomsen will play.“The quad really hurt and he had trouble playing on it,” Keane said.Just like the first two goals, CBA also scored its final one on a break when Bob Cartas picked up a misplayed ball when Holmdel’s goalie tried to push it out and Cartas found an opening for his shot.CBA goalie Steve Donato needed to make only one save for his 11th shutout.Many players remembered last year’s team that won its state tournament opener over Monsignor Donovan, 4- 0, and lost in the next round, 1-0, to St. Joseph’s of Metuchen in a shootout. St. Joseph’s had a 3-0 edge in penalty kicks. “They’re driven now. That loss is a motivating factor,” said Keane. “If we get Thomsen and Villani in, we’ll be fine. The defense is OK, and if the offense can get its shots, we’ll keep playing. We have to make sure our goalie keeps up and improves his play a little bit. He’s had a good year, but we have to make sure he’s ready to make the big saves.”Donato is supported by a back line that was led against Holmdel by stopper Alex Lazzaro, who Keane said “has been outstanding all year and in this game,” as well as sweeper Sean Leister.Holmdel, last year’s Group II state champions, are the No. 3 seed in the Central Jersey Group II section. The Hornets began defense of their 2010 state sectional title on Nov. 1, hosting 14th-seed Ewing.If the Hornets are victorious, they will host the next round on Nov. 4 against the first-round game between sixth-seeded Red Bank Regional and 11th-seed Point Pleasant Boro.

All set for December 2 Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon, 10K

first_img He announced plans to move the staging of the annual event in 2018 to a Sunday, instead of the usual Saturday race day. “We took the decision to host next year’s sporting event on Sunday to ease the effect of the road closure in Negril and also to allow more persons to attend by giving those who have to work up to Friday the opportunity to arrive in Negril on the Saturday”, he said. The event’s world-renowned Pasta Party is back at the Swept Away Sports Complex this year. Also, runners and the general public can enjoy the sounds of the award-winning reggae band Raging Fyah at the Beach Bash Victory Party at Long Bay Beach Park, on December 2. Reggae Marathon’s charity partner is the Heart Foundation of Jamaica and the event continues to encourage runners and walkers to raise funds for the organisation through participation in the event. In addition, the donation of six computers to the winning schools in the 10K High School’s Championship is ongoing. MOVING TO SUNDAY KINGSTON: The 2017 staging of the Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K is set for Saturday, December 2 in Negril. In making the announcement at a media launch yesterday at the Alhambra Inn, Race Director, Alfred ‘Frano’ Francis noted that last year’s staging of the annual sporting event by the Jamdammers Running Club of Kingston received the most recognitions from runners and walkers over the 16 years of staging. In addition, there were accolades from international professional sporting magazines and associations as a calendar event of high international standards. The Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K race event was selected among the Best Half Marathons around the world in 2016. The award was the result of a survey among members of the 100 Half Marathons Club, based in the USA. This is a racing club of members who have completed 100 lifetime half marathons, with some members completing up to 300. In addition, the annual event received the nod from more than 24,000 readers of the UK-based Women’s Running and Men’s Running magazines. They decided that Reggae Marathon was the Men’s Running International Race of the Year and a highly commended event in the Women’s Running International Race of the Year category. “We are very pleased to advise that to date, runners and walkers from over 32 countries have registered to participate on December 2 and we are looking forward to an even more outstanding staging,” Francis said. He noted that the 2017 Reggae Marathon, Half Marathon and 10K has been chosen as the culmination race in the successful national Jamaica Moves Corporate Challenge, led by the Ministry of Health. “This choice by the ministry validates all our previous efforts to have Corporate Jamaica use the event as a platform to build a healthy workforce, while increasing productivity through camaraderie and team building at the workplace, thereby reducing the pressure on the island’s health system,” Francis added.last_img read more

Early-season showdown – Top schools set to clash on JC’s new track

first_imgThe 2019 track and field season is expected to start with a big bang on Saturday. Several of the top high-school track and field teams will be sending large teams to the new Ashenheim Stadium at Jamaica College for the 26th staging of the Purewater JC/Danny Williams Invitational meet. It’s the first meet on the 2019 Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) calendar and for the first time, athletes will be competing on an all-weather 4000-metre track at JC. Meet director Ian Forbes told The Gleaner on yesterday’s closing date for entries that 60 teams, including the national high-school boys’ and girls’ champions, Calabar and Edwin Allen, respectively, are among the entrants. “We are expecting a high-quality meet. There are more athletes than last year, and there is great anticipation by all to compete in this new world-class facility,” said Forbes, who is also first-vice-president of the JAAA. As many as 80 athletes from Calabar are expected to compete at the meet. However, while the Red Hills Road-based school will make their usual strong showing, a lot of focus will be on the host school Jamaica College (JC) and Kingston College (KC). Both schools have had coaching changes coming into the new season. Neil Harrison has moved to JC after four years at KC and will be hoping to put on a grand display. Lead coach at KC Leaford Grant is downplaying the expected clash with their former coach. “KC will be taking a different approach this season. It will be a slow and progressive one for us as the guys are just coming off a Christmas break, and we will not be pushing them so early in trying to seize any psychological advantage over any team,” said Grant, who indicated that winning last year’s Manning Cup football competition has lifted the level of confidence at KC and that this will be reflected in the track and field season. Girls’ champions Edwin Allen have also entered over 80 athletes at the meet, and head coach Michael Dyke will be firing some ‘warning shots’. “We did not have a very good preparation as we did not compete on the road and in development meets in December, but the holiday camp was an excellent one, and come Saturday, we expect great performances all round. The platform for another successful season will be set on Saturday,” said an upbeat Dyke. It’s being whispered in some circles that former girls’ champions Holmwood Technical will unseat Edwin Allen this year, and they have also entered a big team. Coach Dave Anderson said that Holmwood will show on Saturday that they are ready to take back the title they last won in 2013. “We have had a great preseason, and we are strong in all classes,” Anderson said. “Preparation between September to December was excellent, and it will be shown on Saturday and in the days leading up to Champs,” he added. All throwing events for Saturday’s meet will be held at the UWI-Usain Bolt Stadium in Mona, and the athletes will be shuttled by bus to that venue. As usual, an outstanding individual who over the years has contributed to the meet will be recognised, and this year’s honouree is statistician Trevor McCain. Trophies will also be awarded to top athletes at the meet. HIGH-QUALITY MEETlast_img read more

Poverty line

first_imgThis month Guyana will be joining the rest of the United Nations member countries in commemorating International Day for the Eradication of Poverty.Through Resolution 47/196, adopted on December 22, 1992, the General Assembly declared October 17 as the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. The UN invited all States to devote the Day to presenting and promoting, as appropriate in the national context, concrete activities with regard to the eradication of poverty and destitution.The resolution further invites inter-governmental and Non-Governmental Organisations to assist States, at their request, in organising national activities for the observance of this important day. The resolution requests the Secretary General to pursue, within existing resources, the necessary measures to ensure the success of the Day’s observance by the UN.People of all backgrounds, beliefs, and social origins gathered every year since 1992 on October 17 at various places to renew their commitment to eradicating poverty and to show their solidarity with the poor. October 17 presents an opportunity for the world to acknowledge the efforts made by Member States as well as the poor in their struggle to overcome poverty. It also allows Member States, as well as the poor, a chance to make their concerns heard. And it allows the world a day to recognise that poor people are the first ones to combat poverty in their own ways.According to the UN, some one billion people live in extreme poverty and more than 800 million endure hunger and malnutrition. The UN has noted that poverty was not simply measured by inadequate income. It is manifested in restricted access to health, education, sanitation and other essential services and, too often, by the denial or abuse of other fundamental human rights. The poor are marginalised in government participation.As pointed out by former Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, poverty is both a cause and consequence of marginalisation and social exclusion. To fulfil the promise of the 2030 UN Agenda not to leave anyone behind, Member States must address the humiliation and exclusion of people living in poverty in governance. Governments need to be reminded that humiliation and exclusion are powerful drivers of social unrest.It is the duty of all Governments and societies to address systemic socio-economic inequalities and to facilitate the governmental engagement of all people living in extreme poverty. Governments must provide them a role so they can help themselves, their families and their communities to build a more equitable and meaningful life as well as a sustainable and prosperous future for all.In Guyana, too many citizens are still considered living below the poverty line, and many more are still waiting to access the opportunities that would allow them to lift themselves out of poverty. Even though President David Granger has said before that Guyana has enough resources to banish poverty forever, the nation is still waiting to see what concrete plans and programmes are being put in place by the Administration to eradicate poverty and to create “the good life” for all that was promised.The Government must come up with plans to improve education and expand Guyana’s economy to create job opportunities. This is a basic condition to lift people out of poverty as well as, in the process, promote socio-economic equality.Guyana is not a poor country in terms of natural resources. Guyana’s hinterland possesses bountiful natural resources. But despite this endowment, the country remains underdeveloped and mired in poverty. It is plagued by poor infrastructure and environmental hazards.It is also noted that there is a wide disparity in development and in household income between the hinterland and the coastland regions and between urban and rural areas; urban areas are more developed and have much higher household incomes. Efforts must be made to reduce this gap if the nation is to become a more equal nation in terms of urban versus rural areas and/or hinterland versus coastal regions.Building a sustainable future requires Governments as well as people to intensify efforts towards eradicating extreme poverty and ensuring that everyone can fully exercise their human rights. The full participation of the poor in decision making that impacts on their lives and communities must be at the centre of Government policies and strategies to build a sustainable future.last_img read more

Brother of £15m United man Zaha is ‘general’ in gang

first_imgBut it was a different story for the gifted winger’s brother, who appeared to revel in his links with the violent mobs that terrorise neighbourhoods.Herve even bragged he was a “general” in one of the most feared gangs in London, responsible for scores of stabbings, ­shootings and robberies.As Wilfried, 20, prepares to join Manchester United from Crystal Palace, it was revealed his 24-year-old brother claimed to be a leader of the notorious Don’t Say Nothing crew, also called DSN.Herve goes by the gang name Zeltor. In 2009, he wrote on a Bebo profile page: “General Zeltor on dis ting say no mre.”And in a chilling reference to ­gangland violence, he posted: “All u aluminium gangsters coverd by other peoples fame, u knw hu u r, get real. level has changed. my TEAM DO, DID AND THEY F****** DOES THIS THING. so n***** please, cos u dnt wanna see my n*****s squeeze, cos if we do we leave ur f****** body ina fridge, let it freeze…let it go six feet deep…bigup my up all my DSN mandem say no mre.”DSN rose to notoriety in 2007 after a pitched battle took place at a shopping centre in Croydon, South London. Members fought with a rival gang in broad daylight using machetes and bats as shoppers looked on horrified.Dozen of stabbings around the area have been linked to the thugs along with a string of shootings.In July 2012, Herve received a 12-month conditional discharge for criminal damage after launching a paving slab through a car window while a woman sat at the wheel. He was also ordered to pay £100 compensation, £100 to the victim and £80 court costs.His Facebook page features a large picture of him standing next to his younger brother, who joined Palace as a schoolboy and quickly rose to ­prominence with his silky skills catching the eye of United boss Sir Alex Ferguson.The Mirror has also seen an online music video of Herve posing with members of DSN.There is no suggestion England star Wilfried himself has ever been part of the gang or its crimes.One source said: “Wilfried has come from a really difficult background and has done well to stay out of all the gang warfare that goes on in those areas.“He’s also now involved with charities that are trying to help these communities to give something back.” One of DSN’s most notorious gangsters is Joland Giwa, who goes by the ­streetname of Dexter, and also declares himself a general.He became known to the public after sneaking a camera phone into his cell at Rochester jail in Kent where he posted pictures showing off his bulging biceps – honed in the prison gym.In one post on Facebook while still locked up, Giwa declared that “DSN Dexter is out real soon”, bragging that he will “touching road real soon” – slang for being released. DNS, which is even feared by the police over its violence, declared a turf war in 2007 – battling any rival gangs who tried to tread on their toes. They had claimed an entire town centre as their “patch”.Brawls raged in front of horrified ­shoppers, with youths using knives, rakes, brooms, spades and anything that came to hand to batter their opponents.In one fight a youth was chopped in the head by a machete. DSN also used belts fitted with chunky metal buckles – which would leave victims with wounds needing dozens of stitches – to attack rivals.Arch enemies include SMN – Shine My Nine – and Gipset.– Daily Mail and The Mirror0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000LONDON, England, May 7- As Wilfried Zaha prepares to link up with his new Manchester United team-mates this summer, the gang culture he has managed to steer clear from in south London has been brought to light by revelations surrounding the young winger’s elder brother.Zaha, 20, officially became a United player in January after Sir Alex Ferguson sanctioned a £15million deal to bring him north from Crystal Palace, where the player has spent the last four months on loan.last_img read more

A 66-year-old man accused of shooting and killing his elderly brother and sister-in-law, then setting fire to the couple’s West Covina garage to cover up the crime, was ordered Thursday to stand trial. Kent Wesley Holman of St. George, Utah, was told by Pomona Superior Court Judge Charles E. Horan that there was enough evidence for him to be tried on two counts of murder and one count each of arson and burglary. Officials said that on Aug. 5 at 8:30 p.m., firefighters and law enforcement officers were sent to the 1700 block of East Aspen Village Way on a double homicide and arson call. When they arrived at the scene, authorities said, there was a fire in the detached garage of the condominium where Lavar Holman, 83, and his wife, Adeline, 80, lived. West Covina police Detective Steve Wheeless testified Thursday that Lavar Holman’s body was found outside on the patio and Adeline Holman’s body was found on the floor in the hallway between the living and laundry rooms. Both had been shot. Police said Kent Holman drove back to Utah after the shootings, walked into the St. George police station and confessed to the killings. The charges against Kent Holman include a special circumstance allegation of multiple murder. The District Attorney’s Office could seek the death penalty, but prosecutors have not yet decided whether they will. Holman is scheduled to be arraigned in Pomona Superior Court on March 6. – Nisha Gutierrezlast_img read more

Scored his first goal in two years to level the scores 14 14 14 14 14 Rob Holding – 7 – Could have grabbed the glory in extra-time with a thumping header. But the youngster failed to time his jump properly as the chance passed him by SUB – Danny Welbeck – 7 – Utilised his pace against the tiring City defence, but showed a lack of a composure when given the opportunity to go through on goal. His introduction proved to be the catalyst 14 Petr Cech – 7 – Should have done better to obstruct Aguero’s deft chipped finish, but redeemed himself with an outstanding fingertip save to deny Yaya Toure and others in the closing stages Olivier Giroud – 6 – Saw his early header saved by Bravo, but struggled to get into the action through a lack of service.

Click the right arrow above to find out… Aaron Ramsey – 6 – Largely overpowered in midfield by the likes of Yaya Toure and Fernandinho.

Celtic 0-5 Paris Saint-Germain: Battered Bhoys rated and slated

first_imgCeltic suffered a night to forget at Parkhead as they were humbled by Paris Saint-Germain.It was the Bhoys’ heaviest ever home defeat in European competition, and they certainly won’t be looking forward to the video review!Match report: Celtic 0-5 PSG – Neymar and his mates run riot at ParkheadOf course, their Champions League ambitions have to be put into perspective by the level of Scotland’s domestic competition, but the players will largely be disapponted with the overall display.Check out our ratings below by clicking on the arrow to see how each player performed… 14 14 Patrick Roberts – 6 – Was arguably Celtic’s liveliest player before half-time, but he faded after the break before being replaced. Some nice touches, but no real goal threat. 14 Mikael Lustig – 5 – His own goal late on compounded the misery. This is a game, like many of his team-mates, he will want to forget in a hurry. 14 Sub: Odsonne Edouard – 5 – Introduced for the last 20 minutes, but the game was long gone by then. 14 Scott Sinclair – 7 – Got stronger as the game went on and was responsible for most of Celtic’s best moments, although sadly for the home fans those moments were few and far between. Kieran Tierney – 5 – Undoubtedly one of Celtic’s best players on his day, but this wasn’t his day. It was all too easy for PSG to get balls into the box from their right hand side Olivier Ntcham – 5 – The French youngster would have hoped for a big game against his countrymen but, like so many of his team-mates, he just couldn’t make an impact. 14 Tony Ralston – 5 – The teenager battled hard, but he was always going to struggle against some of the best forwards in the world. There will be positive talk of learning from the experience, but he won’t feel like that in the morning. 14 14 Jozo Simunovic – 5 – Gave away a daft penalty to give Cavani the chance to make the game safe before half-time, and it didn’t get a great deal better after the break. 14 14 14 Tom Rogic – 6 – Always tough to be asked to make a difference when your team is 3-0 down at half-time to one of the best sides in Europe. Not a lot he could have done to alter the final outcome. Craig Gordon – 6 – A tough night at the office, but impossible to blame for him for any of the goals his side conceded. His defenders did him very few favours. James Forrest – 5 – Came on the last ten minutes or so. No time to make an impact. 14 Leigh Griffiths – 5 – A thankless task up front, largely on his own. Hard to blame him when the service was so poor. Stuart Armstrong – 4 – The game just completely passed him by. He simply never got going and was replaced at half-time. Scott Brown – 6 – As always from the captain, there was no lack of effort or endeavour, but he simply had no answer to the class of the PSG midfield. 14 14last_img read more

Alleged getaway driver turns self in

first_imgLAKE BALBOA – A Mission Hills man who allegedly drove away with a slaying suspect in the shooting death of a 17-year-old outside of Birmingham High School turned himself in to police Thursday. Bruce Williams, 38, walked into the Los Angeles Police Department’s Van Nuys division about 3:30 p.m., where authorities interviewed him for his role in Wednesday’s shooting, said Fabian Lizarraga, an LAPD patrol captain. Dazohn Tony Roberts died after being shot several times in the abdomen outside the high school during an afternoon gunfight with a suspect identified as Nanshon Williams, 16, of Van Nuys, who remains at large, police said. Lizarraga said both teens were gang members. After he was shot, Roberts staggered down Balboa Boulevard and dropped onto the sidewalk in the designated Safe School Zone in the neighborhood. He died later at a local hospital.
