Jaylen Coleman scored on an 84-yard run and Dontae Forte connected with Brennan Duckett for a 10-yard touchdown pass for the Highlanders.Perry 42, Langley 12Once again, Perry’s Richard Lowry shined in a dominating performance as the Commodores slipped past Langley to cap-off a winless season for the Mustangs. Lowry carried the ball 10 times for 192 yards and a touchdown.Perry’s Aaron Patterson came up big for its offense, with three touchdowns—two rushing and one receiving. Junior quarterback Greg McGhee completed 7 of 10 passes for 133 yards with two touchdowns and an interception.Westinghouse 13, Allderdice 0The Bulldogs of Westinghouse earned their third win of the season. They scored on a 27-yard touchdown run by Ron Tyler and a 48-yard fumble recovery by Darrell Cosby. DIRECTING TRAFFIC —Perry quarterback Greg McGhee threw two touchdown passes and ran for a touchdown. On their way to the top seed they’ve gone on a five-game winning streak. Their previous loss was back on Sept. 18, losing 36-6 to defending champion Brashear. They will rely on their running game, which is led by one of the league’s best, senior tailback Jerome Mathews. Junior DeAndre Black, known as an explosive playmaker on both sides of the ball, will lead the way for the Spartans. UNSTOPPABLE—Richard Lowry of Perry tries to bust through two Langley defenders. Lowry rushed for 192 yards and a touchdown. “Obviously, It’s been good,” said Schenley head coach Jason Bell. “We wanted to turn the corner, which has been a problem for us in the past, and this time we plan to actually get to where we need to be this year (in the championship).” “Our key guy is Mathews,” said Bell. “He’s been a four-year starter for me and we’ve always expected big things out of him. Black makes big plays for us as well. The biggest thing for us to be successful (especially on defense) is the play of our secondary. If they play well, it will cause things to happen for us up front and we can use the athletes that we have on our (defensive) line to make key plays.”Schenley was in action against last past Friday when they blew out Carrick, 58-16. Black scored on a 70-yard touchdown pass from Calvin Beck. He also scored on a 98-yard interception return. Mathews added on by scoring on three touchdown runs of 6, 7, and 10 yards on their way to clinching this year’s regular season crown.Other games:Oliver 22, Peabody 14Oliver’s quarterback Dante Jeter scored on a 1-yard run in the first half. He added on a 24-yard touchdown pass to Martise Smith to lead the Bears past Peabody to finish as this season’s City League runner-up. Smith had a touchdown pass of his own to David Marshall for 22 yards, in the fourth quarter. The seedings are final in the City League as all top four teams were victorious in their final regular season matchups.

first_img36% ITM% Philip D’Amato32 14% TWO THUMBS UP FROM TEAM ASMUSSEN ON MIDNIGHT BISOU WORKMonster Midnight Bisou, undefeated in seven races this year, each a graded stakes, three of them Grade I’s, hopes to enhance her Horse of the Year credentials with a victory in the Grade I, $2 million Longines Distaff at Santa Anita on Nov. 2.With regular rider Mike Smith aboard for trainer Steve Asmussen, the four-year-old daughter of Midnight Lute worked five furlongs towards that goal at 6:45 Monday morning in company with Comedian, each receiving a clocking of 1:01.60.“It went brilliant,” said Smith, who has ridden the dark bay filly in 14 of her 18 career races, winning 10. “She really got over the race track nice; I love the way she handled the surface. She was happy and just cruised in 1:01 about as easy as you could do it. She left her company pretty handily.”Added Asmussen: “Perfect. I thought she looked very comfortable. I was extremely curious for Mike’s input on how she went over the race track because of his familiarity with her and the race track separately, and all reports were very positive.”Midnight Bisou has three wins and a second in four starts at Santa Anita, including victory in the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks on April 7, 2018, when trained by Bill Spawr.BLACKER HITS THE ROAD (NOT REALLY) FOR FIRST BREEDERS’ CUPDan Blacker is looking forward to this year’s Breeders’ Cup races more than most horsemen. It will mark the first time the 37-year-old trainer born in Oxford, England, competes in the championship event, having upstart Hit the Road primed for the $1 million Juvenile Turf at one mile on Nov. 1.Blacker studied at the University of Edinburgh before coming to the U.S. where he was assistant to Richard Mandella from 2007 to 2009, working with Grade I winners The Tin Man, Into Mischief and Dixie Chatter, among others.“Hit the Road came out of his win in the Zuma Beach (Oct. 6) as good as he went in,” Blacker said of the bay son of More Than Ready, who was making only his third start. “His weight is good, but his biggest asset, along with his talent, is his mind. He’s got the mind of an older horse.“He’s very smart, very laid back, and when you have a horse like that, they just do what they need to do, don’t expend any more energy than they have to.“He looks really good right now, and missing a start at Del Mar because he got sick was beneficial in his winning the Zuma Beach and setting up for the Breeders’ Cup.“Maybe that was a blessing in disguise, because he won the Zuma Beach off what might be considered a layoff (a span of more than two months), so he should be peaking for the Breeders’ Cup. I’m feeling really good about having a winning race over the course.“He hasn’t even been tested over the turf, having won both his races so easily.”Hit the Road, owned by D K Racing, LLC, Radley Equine, Inc., Taste of Victory Stables and Rick Gold, broke his maiden going a mile on turf at Del Mar by a length and a quarter, rallying from eighth in a field of 10, then came back to take the Zuma Beach by 2 ¼ lengths.D’AMATO HAS TWO FOR THE MONEY IN CALIFORNIA FLAGPhil D’Amato, the training leader in stakes wins with four through 11 days of Santa Anita’s 23-day Autumn Meet, could add to that total Saturday when he sends out King Abner and What a View in the $100,000 California Flag Handicap for three-year-olds and up at 5 ½ furlongs on turf.Both horses are coming off a series of route races at a mile or longer, but D’Amato is optimistic that he is doing right by shortening them up.“Both have a lot of back class,” D’Amato pointed out. “They’re fresh and they both run their best races when they’re fresh. They’re training very well.”King Abner, a gray son of Hansen, last raced on June 29, a span of some 14 weeks, while What a View is coming off a seventh-place finish Aug. 18 in the Grade II Del Mar Mile Handicap in which he set the pace until reaching the homestretch.The California Flag Handicap is one in the lucrative Golden State Series, restricted to California-bred or sired horses.FINISH LINES: Bob Baffert sent Eight Rings, romping six-length winner of the American Pharoah Stakes on Sept. 27, five furlongs in 1:01 this morning as he prepares for the $2 million TVG Breeders’ Cup Juvenile on Nov. 1. The son of Empire Maker worked in company with Qahira, who was clocked in 1:01.20. Also working for Baffert under Drayden Van Dyke was Improbable, a candidate for the $1 million Big Ass Fans Dirt Mile on Nov. 2. He went five furlongs in 1:01.20 . . . Breeders’ Cup Sprint candidate Engage went four furlongs for Steve Asmussen in 50.60, while Mirth (Filly & Mare Turf), front-running winner of the Rodeo Drive Stakes, went four furlongs on the training track in 50.80 for Phil D’Amato . . .

first_imgThe decisive actionIn the absence of five minutes to conclude the final, a bad control of Dani Carvajal led to a rapid counterattack of Atlético that managed to leave Morata completely alone. The 9 rojiblanco, with meters to run, undertook the race to the goal of Courtois. Fede Valverde was able to recover the position and made a strong entry behind the athletic striker to cut the play and avoid a certain decisive, even at the cost of being expelled.The arbitration recordFrom the beginning, the drafting of the arbitration record of the referee of the final, Sánchez Martínez, already showed that Fede Valverde would only receive a penalty match: “In the 116th minute the player (15) Valverde Dipetta, Federico Santiago was sent off by the next reason: Knock down an opponent thereby preventing a clear chance of scoring. “ The Competition Committee has imposed a penalty match against Real Madrid player Fede Valverde for the foul he committed on Atlético de Madrid striker Álvaro Morata in the Super Cup final disputed in Arabia. The action of the Uruguayan was the direct red card to avoid what could have been the goal of the triumph of Atlético, leading the end to extra time and subsequent penalties in which Madrid won the title.Uruguayan soccer player will fulfill the penalty in League against Sevilla this Saturday at the Santiago Bernabéu (16:00 hours), just as it is established by Article 56.8 of the Disciplinary Code of the RFEF, which states that “the suspension by parties that is a consequence of the Spanish Super Cup regardless of its seriousness, will imply the prohibition of aligning (…) in as many (matches) as the sanction for the order in which they take place” .last_img read more

first_imgIker Casillas, former Real Madrid international goalkeeper, stated this Wednesday that lthe best stop of his entire career was the one he made to Arjen Robben during the final of the World Cup in South Africa, which Spain won against the Netherlands in 2010.That was Casillas’ choice when asked by an amateur on the official Champions League Twitter account, in which the Spanish goalkeeper answered other questions related to his career.“I choose stops that are decisive in the end. Like the one in the World Cup final in South Africa. That hand in hand with Robben, not for the spectacular but for the moment. And then the 2002 final in Glasgow (of the Champions League that Real Madrid beat Bayer Leverkusen), those final minutes. “Casillas explained how the seconds before his action against Robben were, in the 62nd minute of the final, when the scoreboard was 0-0 between Spain and the Netherlands.“At that time what I tried was to preview what he could do. He had been my partner at Real Madrid and he already knew more or less what his skills were. I tried to give him a little more left side to try to dribble around, but then he decided to shoot at goal and I was able to get the right foot out quickly, “he said.By last, He chose between one of the two great titles he won with Spain: lto Euro 2008 in Switzerland and Austria or the World Cup in South Africa 2010.“It is a good question. The difference from 2010 to 2008 is great. It is true that for us there is a beginning, which is the Euro Cup in Austria and Switzerland where we managed to pass the penalty shootout against Italy (quarterfinals). From there, everything else came, “he explained.“If we had not passed that round of the quarterfinals of the Euro Cup, neither the World Cup nor the next Euro Cup would have arrived. It was a decisive moment in Spanish football. Whatever it is to win a World Cup outshines the rest. They are different moments but at the same time very important “, he pointed out.“You have to be very restrained for football to return”The exguardameta Íker Casillas, candidate for the presidency of the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF), considered that it is necessary to be ‘very restrained’ to make the decision to return the competition. “I am quite optimistic about life in general, I have always liked to see the glass half full, but right now I think you have to be very restrained when making a decision like that. I am convinced that all the people who are in different positions worldwide are always thinking about the quality of football and the fans, “he said. “But right now I think that there will be a few months in which it will take a certain calm and a certain calm to know when and when everything begins to establish itself as it was before. It is taking slow, safe and firm steps, especially for the good of the people.“He said. On his aspiration to preside over the highest body of Spanish football, he commented:” From a distance I have been aware of everything for a long time. But it is true that right now the main thing is to be able to have this cure, to be able to have it under control, above different levels “.“The decision was made a few months ago but right now everything is so stopped that you have to wait for events and see how everything unfolds.. Right now this is secondary and the main thing is to insist that people be consistent and listen to what they tell us, “he added in the online solidarity marathon #YoMeCorono organized by Carlos Latre and which aims to raise funds to find the vaccine against the disease.Asked about how he is handling the situation caused by this disease, he said: “I am a little scared but confident with the people who are aware of everything. I am convinced that they are doing everything possible to keep the world population calm.. It is a new situation for everyone, first time. We have to listen very well to the people who are in the front row fighting against all this. ““In Portugal the state of alarm is not, it is that of emergency. It has some nuance different from Spain but still the people are quite consistent and almost everyone is responsible, they stay at home, “he declared. He also spoke of the unity his country is experiencing, similar to the one that took place during the celebrations after the conquest of the 2010 World Cup in South Africa:” Since I remember We have rarely seen an entire country, all of humanity, so close together and so eager to live and help as we are right now. “Ten years ago we had to do it in a happy way, Madrid was a show. Now we are seeing the opposite but we continue to see that unity that we have. It is a pity, a misfortune what is happening. But still we see that the union is strength and I think we are going to have to pull it more than ever“he opined.last_img read more

first_imgJamaica College’s Miguel Coley, the winning Oliver Shield coach for the past four seasons, says the trophy still stands as the symbol of supremacy in schoolboy football. The Sydney Oliver Interscholastic Challenge Shield, or the Oliver Shield, has been contested since 1909 between the top rural and urban area high schools and for many years was the climax of the schoolboy football season. However, the introduction of the more popular FLOW Super Cup and the glamour and fanfare that accompany it have led many to believe the winners of this new all-island competition represent the best schoolboy team in the island, but not so says Coley. “I believe it is still the symbol of schoolboy supremacy,” Coley told The Gleaner. “Since the inception of the FLOW Super Cup, only one team has won both the FLOW Super Cup and the Oliver Shield, and that is JC. Last year, St George’s won the FLOW Cup and JC won the Manning Cup and Oliver Shield titles. No other team has won the Super Cup and gone on to win the Oliver Shield. “But it’s not just about country versus town (as in the case of the FLOW Cup). It’s about the best team from the Manning Cup against the best rural-area team, which in the Super Cup you have teams in the top eight of the rural area that couldn’t come through a Manning Cup group. “So the Oliver Shield is still significant; it has a lot of prestige, a lot of history, and there are always two good teams in the final. Cornwall were in the Super Cup final and now they are in the Oliver Shield, so it’s usually the best two teams in the island playing the Oliver Shield,” he said. He thinks the Oliver Shield has only suffered because it is not being highlighted. “People believe what they see and hear. The Oliver Shield is not marketed as much as other competitions … but for persons who understand and know the history of our football, it is still very significant,” he said.last_img read more

first_imgThe worst Ebola outbreak on record has now killed more than 7,000 people, with many of the latest deaths reported in Sierra Leone, the World Health Organization said as United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon continued his tour of Ebola-affected countries in West Africa on Saturday.The three countries hit hardest by Ebola have now recorded 7,373 deaths, up from 6,900 on Wednesday, according to WHO figures posted online late Friday. A total of 392 of the new deaths were in Sierra Leone, where Ebola is spreading the fastest.The new totals include confirmed, probable and suspected Ebola deaths. The WHO says there have also been six Ebola deaths in Mali, eight in Nigeria and one in the United States.The total number of cases in Guinea, Sierra Leone and Liberia now stands at 19,031, up from 18,569.Ban arrived in Guinea, where the outbreak’s first cases were confirmed back in March, on Saturday after touring Liberia and Sierra Leone on Friday. After meeting with President Alpha Conde, he expressed concern about the situation in the country’s southeast forest region, where he said the number of infected people “seems to continue to grow.” The region borders Liberia, Sierra Leone and Ivory Coast, and Ban called for cross-border collaboration to bring the disease under control.He urged all Guineans to commit themselves to eradicating Ebola, saying that the U.N. and its partners “are there to help you.””It has never been so important to work together,” he said.Guinea has recorded 2,453 Ebola deaths and 1,550 cases, according to the WHO. This past week, officials in Conakry, the capital, announced a ban on New Year’s Eve celebrations such as fireworks displays and beach gatherings in a bid to curtail transmission.Ban was expected to travel to Mali Saturday evening.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgIn wake of the Orlando massacre which left 49 dead and over 50 injured, one of Guyana’s major political parties, the People’s Progressive Party has called on the international community to increase its efforts in the fight against terrorism.During a press conference on Monday morning, PPP General Secretary Clement Rohee said the shooting in Orlando, USA is suggestive of terrorism and in this regard, he called on the international community to increase its efforts to stamp out terrorism.The PPP condemned the attack in the strongest possible terms.“This is the worst killing in recent history in the USA and came on the heels of a series of terrorist-related activities which have left scores of people dead not to mention the untold number who suffered physical and emotional trauma as a result of such barbaric actions.“Actions such as these can only be the work of sick and warped minds regardless of the motive or motives they may wish to attribute in justification of their murderous action,” Rohee stated.The PPP has called for heightened international efforts against terrorism in wake of the Orlando shootingInitial investigations into the incident by US officials revealed that the killer, Omar Mateen, did not appear to receive any external directions.According to CNN, Mateen, however, pledged allegiance to the international terrorist group ISIS.It is believed that homophobia may have prompted the violent action.In this regard, Rohee reflected on the progress made internally as it relates to Guyana’s legal framework in protecting the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community.“I have not noticed anything that the PPP has done against to antagonise such a community,” he stated.He said the ball was now in the Government’s court to take action.Only recently, in observation of its 13th anniversary in Guyana, the Society Against Sexual Orientation Discrimination (SASOD) lamented that the political will was lacking and little progress has been made in putting measures in place to curb incidents of violence and discrimination against LBGT members.last_img read more
