BYC Regains Honor with Fighting Spirit

first_imgChampion club, Barrack Young Controllers, yesterday fought back from 2-0 down to even the scores 3-3 at the end of a grueling 90minutes of total soccer.It was a performance that shocked thousands of stunned soccer fans who had given up hope of the team’s recovery, after the visitors took a comfortable early 2-0 lead.“Never in the history of Liberian football has a team fought back with such astonishing success,” said a soccer fan who spoke to the Daily Observer.It was in the first leg of the CAF Championship League at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.At the same venue last Friday, Confederation Cup campaigners, Red Lions failed to tame their Algerian counterparts, Club Sportif Constantinois, losing 1-0 in their first leg to the horror of home fans.With the poor showing of Red Lions in the mind of soccer fans, they, however, believed that the ‘Go Blue Boys’ could do better, and they waited for the inevitable.It was bolstered on by the team’s fighting spirit, despite always scoring behind the Ivorians that convinced soccer fans that they could do better in the return leg in Abidjan, this weekend.Their Ivorian counterparts, Sewe Sport of San Pedro yesterday made their early announcement that they were in the country for serious business.By the 5th minute, the Ivorian champions have slotted in 2-0.The two early goals did not dampen the fighting spirit of the Liberian champions and Isaac Popo reduced the tally before the end of the first half.When the second session resumed, the Ivorians raced ahead with their third goal but it was BYC’s Blamoh Nymely who found his side’s second goal.The Liberian champions did not look back and covered every blade of grass on the field, as soccer fans urged them on to score which came through Prince Saydee. The team’s response did not come as a surprise, and therefore throwing the chance for the final decider in far away Abidjan this coming Sunday.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_imgA Port Kaituma, North West District (NWD) miner was on Thursday denied bail by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan after he was slapped with two counts of illegal ammunition and gun possession charges.Roberto Miggins, 25, pleaded not guilty to the charge which stated that on May 31,2016, in the NWD he hadRoberto Migginsone .38 revolver in his possession without being the holder of a firearm licence.He also denied the other charge which stated on the same day at the same location, he had in his possession five rounds of .38 ammunition without being the holder of a firearm licence.Defence Attorney Euclin Gomes told the court the gun and ammunition were found in the riverine area of the mining camp, and his client being the only person there at the time, apart from law enforcement, was accused.Gomes made an application for reasonable bail to be granted to his client on this ground.

Arsenal one foot in Europa final as Lacazette strikes quickfire brace

first_imgArsenal boss Unai Emery is a Europa League specialist having won the competition three times when in charge at Sevilla.And the Spaniard’s decision to start Lacazette and Aubameyang together against his former side was richly rewarded despite a terrible start from the hosts.Arsenal are desperate not just for silverware in Emery’s first season but the guarantee of Champions League qualification for next season that winning the Europa League would bring.A run of three straight Premier League defeats has left Emery’s men needing more favours from Chelsea or Tottenham to stand any chance of a top-four Premier League finish.The Gunners had conceded three times in all three of those defeats to Crystal Palace, Wolves and Leicester and the same defensive deficiencies cost them again early on.Valencia had already missed a glorious chance to take the lead when Ezequiel Garay somehow turned Rodrigo’s driven cross over the bar from point-blank range.However, the hosts did not learn their lesson and from another set-piece, Valencia took the lead when Diakhaby got the final touch at the back post to force home Rodrigo’s header across goal.Emery has been reticent to start Lacazette and Aubameyang together up front, but the game turned on one moment of magic from Arsenal’s two prolific strikers.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Alexandre Lacazette combined for Arsenal’s three goals in a 3-1 win over ValenciaLacazette played in Aubameyang and the Gabon international left his marker and Valencia goalkeeper Neto on the ground before squaring for his strike partner to roll into an empty net.Seven minutes later, Arsenal led as terrible defending allowed Lacazette a free header from Granit Xhaka’s cross and a weak hand from Neto could not prevent the ball crossing the line.The chances continued to come for Arsenal’s front two as Aubameyang volleyed into the ground and over just before the break.Lacazette then had two glorious opportunities to complete his hat-trick as he firstly failed to connect with an inch-perfect Aubameyang cross before Neto made a brilliant save at his near post to keep the Spanish side in the tie.At the other end Petr Cech also had to make a smart stop as he raced from his goal to deny substitute Kevin Gameiro.The veteran stopper has announced he will retire at the end of the season.And Cech’s final game could well be against his former club Chelsea in next month’s final as the Blues secured a 1-1 draw away at Eintracht Frankfurt in the first leg of the other semi-final.Arsenal still have work to do with their terrible away record this season likely to give Valencia plenty of encouragement.However, they moved much closer to booking their place in Baku when Aubameyang turned home at the back post in the final minute.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Matteo Guendouzi also piled in on top of the goalscorer, as the Emirates collectively stood in appreciation. Photo/DAILY MAILLONDON, United Kingdom, May 2 – Arsenal took a huge step towards the Europa League final as a double from Alexandre Lacazette and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang’s late strike earned a 3-1 semi-final, first leg win over Valencia on Thursday.The Spanish side’s bright start was rewarded with Mouctar Diakhaby’s away goal, but Lacazette quickly turned the game around with two goals in eight minutes before Aubameyang’s late intervention gave the Gunners a two-goal advantage to defend at the Mestalla on May 9.last_img read more

Max McGee dies at home after falling from his roof

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREGame Center: Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, 10 a.m.Police were called to the former Green Bay receiver’s Deephaven home around 5:20 p.m., Sgt. Chris Whiteside said. Efforts to resuscitate McGee were unsuccessful. McGee was blowing leaves off the roof when he fell, according to news reports. A phone message left at a number listed for an M. McGee wasn’t immediately returned. “I just lost my best friend,” former teammate Paul Hornung told the St. Paul Pioneer Press. “(His wife) Denise was away from the house. She’d warned him not to get up there. He shouldn’t have been up there. He knew better than that.” Inserted into Packers’ lineup when Boyd Dowler was sidelined by a shoulder injury, McGee went on to catch the first touchdown pass in Super Bowl history in Green Bay’s 35-10 victory over Kansas City in January 1967. Still hung over from a night on the town, McGee caught seven passes for 138 yards and two TDs. “Now he’ll be the answer to one of the great trivia questions: Who scored the first touchdown in Super Bowl history?” Hornung said. “Vince knew he could count on him. … He was a great athlete.” Though an admirer of Lombardi, McGee time and again pushed the tough-as-nails coach to the breaking point. McGee – remembered for saying: “When it’s third-and-10, you can take the milk drinkers and I’ll take the whiskey drinkers every time.” – put Lombardi to the test prior to the first Super Bowl. McGee had caught only four passes for 91 yards during the 1966 regular season and, not expecting to play against the Chiefs, violated the team’s curfew and spent the night before the game partying. The next morning he told Dowler: “I hope you don’t get hurt. I’m not in very good shape.” Dowler went down with a separated shoulder on the Packers’ second drive. A few plays later, McGee made a one-handed reception of a pass from Bart Starr and ran 37 yards to score.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Biomass export plant for Coega

first_img1 February 2007The Coega Industrial Development Zone outside Port Elizabeth has secured a R70-million investment into a biomass fuel project which will supply 10 000 tons of the product per month to European markets.The plant will be one of the largest among the 285 operations of this product globally, the Coega Development Corporation said in a statement on Wednesday.Eastern Cape Biomass Fuel Pellets CEO Willie Claassen said the company had already secured off-take agreements with Nordic countries, where the entire product will be exported to. Production is scheduled to commence in August, with the first product due for export in November.According to the company, about 100 jobs will be created during construction of the plant, which is currently under way, while an additional 60 direct jobs and about 3 000 indirect jobs “in backward linkages to Eastern Cape rural areas” will be created. A transport company that will move the material between the sources of supply, the factory and the harbour will employ a further 40 people.Biomass is an environmentally friendly alternative source of energy used to fire power stations and also used in private homes in Europe. A total of 285 plants around the world produce a combined four million tons of biomass pellets a year.The Coega plant will use forest residue, sawmill waste and alien vegetation from the Eastern Cape and part of the Southern Cape as well as some of the scrap wood from the government’s Working for Water programme.Eastern Cape Biomass chose the Coega IDZ as the location for its plant because of the coastal position and the fact that the Eastern Cape is a source of the raw materials used in processing the pellets.Jobs where they’re most needed“The aspect of creating jobs where they are most needed, and the opportunity to design and build a plant from scratch without the constraints of legacy, also counted in the favour of the Coega IDZ,” Claassen said.The company said it has set aside about 5% of ownership for its workers and another 5% for rural communities that have been roped in to provide the raw materials. The Industrial Development Corporation has 10% equity, with a 30% stake still under negotiation for a black economic empowerment partnership.The Coega Development Corporation (CDC) said it remained on track to achieve its target of signing 10 investors by the end of March. The biomass project is the fourth investor to be announced by the CDC after Cerebos, Dynamic Commodities and Alcan in 2006.“Although four other investors who have signed agreements with the CDC to locate their investments in the Coega IDZ have still not been announced, due to investor confidentiality agreements, the biomass investment brings the total number of investment projects signed to eight against the set target of 10,” the CDC reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more
