The Drua had arrived in the nation’s capital top of the table after four rounds but the only categories they dominated on Friday night were turnovers conceded and missed tackles.Vikings winger Andy Muirhead scored the opening try in the fourth minute of the match and from there the home side never relinquished their lead, running in ten tries to one.Coach Tim Sampson admitted he was surprised at just how well it went.”It’s a dream, you certainly hope so,” he said of the way the game played out.”But there were things that we focused on during the week when coming up against the Drua and thankfully tonight they did come off.”That’s credit to the players stood out there to execute what we practised during the week.”Despite losing their previous two matches, Sampson felt the team’s performances had been positive and hoped Friday’s result will give the squad “that little bit of extra belief” in how they can play.”We’ve been reasonably happy with how we’re going, especially with our defence, so in attack what was a big focus for us this week and that washolding onto the ball and starving Fiji of possession, which we did quite well,” he said.Queensland Country are the new competition leaders, after thumping Melbourne Rising 54-12, while the top four teams, including Canberra, Perth and the Drua, all have 15 points and are only separted by points differential.All nine teams have managed at least one win in the first five rounds and Tim Sampson believed anyone can beat anyone.The Drua are on the road again this weekend, away to the Greater Sydney Rams.last_img read more

first_imgThe ‘Pichichi’ CupsAfter the conquest of the Copa del Rey in 1910, The time came for Rafael Moreno Aranzadi, better known as ‘Pichichi’. Before playing for the Biscayan club, he played a Cup match in 2011 against them with Bilbao, scoring the only goal of his team. In the 89 games he played with Athletic between 1911 and 1921, the Spanish striker scored 83 goals, becoming the best scorer of the time.AITOR MARTIN & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Brazil made offerings to the bust of Pichichi.AITOR MARTIN (DAILY AS) Iriondo joined in 1944, where they beat Valencia 2-0, with goals from Escudero and, again, Zarra. The following year, they got the consecutive triplet, the fourth of their history, after defeating Valencia 3-2 in the final, with goals from Zarra and Iriondo. The latter scored two goals, the last one in the discount to give Athletic his seventeenth wound. In 1950, with the complete lead, the Biscaynes achieved a convincing 4-1 in the final against Valladolid. Zarra was raised in this match with four goals, three of them in extra time.Latest titlesWith the third historical front, formed by Arteche, Marcaida, Arieta, Uribe and Gaínza, three other Cup championships arrived between 1955 and 1958, with the only blur of the one played in 1957, where they fell in the first round against Espanyol. Sevilla, Atlético de Madrid and Real Madrid were the rivals they faced in those finals. From there, Bilbao’s idyll with the Cup was declining.In 1969, after 11 years without winning it and after losing two consecutive finals between 1966 and 1967, the Basques again tasted the glory. They did it after winning the minimum to Elche, with a lonely goal from Arieta. He would dial again four years later, when Athletic won Castellón 2-0 in the final, where Zubiaga would also score. The last title would be the 1984 Cup. The second most successful team in the history of the Copa del Rey will be in the final of La Cartuja on April 18. Athletic eliminated Granada thanks to the double value of goals away from home. Five years after Barcelona ended his dream, the Bilbao people will fight for the title again. And they will do it in a game with even more morbidity than a final means, since they will face Real Sociedad, your maximum rival.Garitano’s have played the final of the National Cup up to three times so far this century, but in all of them he was defeated. And in all of them the executioner was the same: FC Barcelona. Iago Herrerín, San José, Beñat, Aduriz, Balenciaga, Williams and Ibai are the survivors of the last final.Now, the situation will be different. They will not have to face the team that has done more times with the title of this competition, which they had in San Mamés in the quarterfinals. But they will have to face a derby that promises strong emotions.Miguel Toña & nbsp; (DIARIO AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>La Gabarra del Athletic, ready to go out again.Miguel Toña (DIARIO AS) 36 years without CupDespite showing 24 championships, Athletic have not won a Cup final since May 5, 1984, when they won FC Barcelona de Maradona 1-0. A lonely goal of Endika in the 14th minute, at the exit of a cornerHe gave the rojiblancos his last league title in a game in which there was more tension than football.In that season, an Athletic commanded by some of the most mythical players of the Biscay club, like Zubizarreta, Goikoetxea, Patxi Salinas or Captain Dani, would achieve the domestic double. In addition to the Cup, he also won the league by defeating Real Sociedad on the last day, who will be his rival in the final of La Cartuja. It was the second and last time that Athletic took out the barge, that mythical vessel with which they celebrated the titles of 1983 and 1984.First Cup ChampionIn the spring of 1902, Athletic Club and Bilbao Football Club, a team that had been born two years before, they formed a combined team under the name of Bizcaya to play the Coronation Cup, a national tournament created to celebrate the coming of age of King Alfonso XIII. This title, considered precursor of the current Copa del Rey, Bizcaya raised it, after imposing 2-1 on F.C. Barcelona with goals from Astorquia and Cazeaux, for the Basques, and Parsons, for the Catalans.LLUIS GENE & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Valverde and Aduriz lament after losing the Copa del Rey final.LLUIS GENE (DAILY AS)center_img It was not until 1913 when he could play an official match with Athletic. From that season, Bilbao won three Cups of the King consecutively. In one of them, the one that won RCD Espanyol 5-0, ‘Pichichi’ scored three goals. Among his honors are being the first scorer in the history of San Mamés and being the first Athletic player to collect a salary for playing football. In the season of his retirement, in 1921, he would conquer his fourth Copa del Rey, the ninth in the showcases of lions.Four twisted in a rowBetween 1930 and 1936 Athletic won four League titles, in addition to many other Cup. The latter achieved them consecutively between 1930 and 1933. They were the years of the first historical front of the lions, formed by Lafuente, Iraragorri, Bata, Chirri and Gorostiza. This was one of the best times in the history of Bilbao, but it was cut by the Civil War.His rivals in those four Cup finals were Real Betis, prevailing 3-1 in 1931; F.C. Barcelona, which they defeated 2-1 in 1932; and Real Madrid, that was its rival by double game in 1930 and 1933, in both cases becoming the Basques with the victory. The Real Madrid players would take revenge in 1934, appealing to the Bilbao people in the semifinals.Another triplet with ZarraBetween 1943 and 1945, the lions continued to include trophies in their showcases, reaching 17 championships. It was the stage of the second historical forward, with Telmo Zarra as spearhead, accompanied by Iriondo, Venancio, Panizo and Gaínza. But not all of them participated in these titles. In 1943, only Zarra, Panizo and Gaínza played the final against Real Madrid, where they won 1-0 with a goal in the extension of the first.DAILY AS & nbsp; (DAILY AS) ‘); return false; “class =” item-multimedia “>Zarra heads up in an Athletic match.DAILY AS (DAILY AS) The following year the Copa del Rey was created. In its first edition only three teams participated: Athletic Club, Spanish in Madrid and Madrid F.C. After beating both the Spanish, Athletic and Madrid faced in what is considered the final, where the Basques traced a 2-0 in the second half to establish the final 2-3. This comeback inspired a group of young people from Madrid to create a subsidiary of Athletic in Madrid. Years later, would unlink from Athletic to end up being what is now Atlético de Madrid.In 1904, and after a mismatch in the organization that ended up being impossible to resolve, the Federation he gave the Athletic champion without having to play the final. The Bilbao presented the day and time that was set for the final. The Spanish did not do so, aware that the delays of previous rounds prevented the end, since that same weekend they played a game against Moncloa, which never ended. As the Basques were not notified of such delays, champions proclaimed themselves, and the Federation ended up proving them right.last_img read more

first_img The visitors were pegged back largely by rookie leg-spinner Damion Jacobs, who picked up four for 53 from his 10 overs. “It was a really good sign that our bowlers got some time in the middle before it started raining. It was turning out to be a good game,” Amla said. “They bowled well. It started raining and the ball got really wet, but even then they bowled decently. Getting overs under the belt is the most important thing.” South Africa will join hosts West Indies and world champions Australia in Guyana for the Tri-Nations Series, which runs from June 3-26. The series will move on to St Kitts from June 11-15 before winding up in Barbados. Though the majority of the Proteas unit are coming off the Indian Premier League, which climaxed last Sunday, Amla said he did not foresee any major problems with the transition from Twenty20 cricket to the 50-overs format. “I don’t think (the difference) is that big. The only thing is that you have a lot of time to set the game up,” the former captain said. “You have to remind yourself that there is a lot of time still left in the game, but it’s a lot easier to go from T20s to one-dayers than from a Test match.” GOOD SIGN PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Opener Hashim Amla says Sunday’s one-day tour match against the WICB President’s XI was important in South Africa’s build-up to the start of the Tri-Nations Series later this week, even though rain ruined the contest at Queen’s Park Oval. Opting to bat, the Proteas piled up 280 for nine off their 50 overs, and the President’s XI were 127 for three in the 25th over when rained arrived to end the game prematurely. The game was ruled a tie under Duckworth/Lewis. “It was a great outing for us. When you come to a foreign country, the most important thing is having time on the legs, especially some of the guys who haven’t played in a while,” said the prolific opener, who top-scored with 92. “We put up a good total on the board. Fortunately I managed to get some runs and a few of the lower order batsmen as well, which is quite handy.”last_img read more

first_imgPreparation and discipline enabled the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) to take top honours in the National Amateur Boxing Championships held at the Stanley Couch Gym in Kingston last weekend. Ten gyms participated, and the JDF scored an impressive 42 points, well ahead of Stanley Couch 22, Bruising 17, St Thomas 14, G.C. Foster 10, Oracabessa 6, Heavy Metal 5, Dream Sports 4, Boys Town 3 and Sugar Olympic 2. Special guests at the finals on Saturday were Oliver McCall, former world heavyweight champion; and USA boxing promoter Chris Joy. The army men were superior to the other teams in every department, and although some of their bouts were keenly contested, they were able to produce the extra spark at the right moment to take the honours. They were very aggressive in the closing 10 seconds of each round, a tactic that paid rich dividends for them. The most exciting bout of the night, was the lightweight contest between the army’s Marvin Shea and Sanjay Williams from Bruising gym, who reached the finals by dethroning defending champion Ricardo Carter from G.C. Foster gym. SPLIT DECISION In a torrid third round, in which both boxers let it all out, Shea’s consistency ruled the day, and he came away with a split decision. He was also voted the outstanding boxer of the competition. Former middleweight champion Janathan Hanson, from Stanley Couch, regained his title with a good victory over Alando Lewis from Heavy Metal gym. Hanson was methodical, and Lewis did not challenge him enough during the encounter to give himself a better chance of victory. The bouts in the heavier weight classes ended with decisions that neither the losers nor the crowd agreed with. In the light-heavyweight division, Ian Darby from the JDF was given the nod over Carlos Dwyer from Stanley Couch. Dwyer was impressive, but the hard working Darby got the nod from the judges. There was also crowd displeasure with the decision in the heavyweight division, when army man Bassanio Shaw outpointed Clive Thomas from St Thomas. This, too, was close, but Shaw finished each round with a flurry of activity, and this assisted his cause. In the Super heavyweight division, veteran Dukey Rowe from Stanley Couch, used his experience to defeat Ricardo Brown from the G.C. Foster gym. The army’s Gilbert Vaz was named the outstanding coach, and a special award was given by the Jamaica Boxing Board to referee/judge Ransford Burton for his invaluable service to boxing.last_img read more

first_imgThe Ministry of Health and Social Welfare (MOHSW) Thursday, May 8, celebrated the International Children’s Mental Health Day under the theme, “Inspiring Resilience, Creative Hope.”The event, held on the compound of the Health Ministry, brought together government officials students and community dwellers.Speaking at the occasion, Yeetlen Niapeh, a Medical Health practitioner at the John F. Kennedy Medical Center (JFK) urged parents to promote resilience amongst their children in order to help them solve their mental challenges; adding that they (parents) should be resilient in their speeches and activities.She noted that Liberia has no mental health facilities and medications to help children combat mental health issues.“We do not have mental health facilities here, so parents, community dwellers, and family members should help children in the process. Mental health problem is difficult to the upbringing of every child, so we must take a step in helping these children, because they are our future and Liberia wants the best of them,” she said. Madam Niapeh highlighted peer pleasure, early marriage and teenage pregnancy as some of the challenges that lead to mental health disorder in children.She recommended to the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare that a policy be put in place to address cases of mental illness in children.“I will also want to recommend that the Catherine Mills Mental Health facility is rehabilitated. With that we will have a starting point and from there, we know where to go again.”She also called on school authorities to create counseling sections in our schools because, the children spend most of their hours in school,” she said.Also speaking, Mrs. Theresa J. Grandoe, Deputy Chief of Interpol Liberia National Police, acknowledged that mental health problems are originated from the home and family.She noted that most family members tend not to know about their children’s daily activities, adding that as a result, many children get involved to move around with the wrong friends.She also urged parents to report to the LNP if they have cases of exploitation against their children, because exploitation is one of the main causes that lead to mental health disorder.“Liberia needs a strong law to combat drugs trafficking. We need to join hands to track down culprits that are making the lives of our children difficult and stop them from escaping. We have started what we call the Yellow Notice. This is to help trace perpetrators of crimes. Once you have a case of sexual violence and exploitation, just report the case and if we enter it in our data base, we can track down criminals no matter where they are,” she stressed.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 light of the recent incident at the St George’s High School that left Auburn Campbell, 15, nursing chop wounds to his hands, Chief Education Officer (CEO) Olato Sam has indicated he is collaborating with Police to implement measures to prevent recurrence of a similar nature.Chief Education Officer Olato SamIt was reported that the attack on Campbell stemmed from an altercation that occurred on Monday after the assailant allegedly made a remark that a female student “smelled of sex”. Campbell reportedly told the female about the remarks made, which angered the assailant, resulting in a scuffle between him and Campbell.Thinking the matter resolved, Campbell attended school as per normal the next day, only to be greeted by the assailant and his mother, who reportedly instigated the matter after allegedly commenting, “Wha he gon get, he look for” as well as instructing her son to chop his classmate.Melinda Campbell parent of the injured student, expressed frustration with the lack of action taken by law enforcement and the school’s disciplinary system. In reference to this, Sam said there is an ongoing investigation to evaluate the situation to determine what measures can be taken.Meanwhile, in another incident at Tucville Secondary School, a fourth form student was relieved of her cellular phone after a man approached her demanding her valuables.The student angered the man after refusing to relinquish her items; he then forcibly took away her cellular phone and began to flee after he realised the commotion had caught the attention of other students who were coming to the young woman’s aid.The perpetrator in possession of a knife, reportedly threatened to stab anyone that followed him, causing students to discontinue their chase.Chanise Brotherson the student’s mother, claimed that she was informed of the incident by the school’s administration.

first_img Trebilcock seemed to favor Ohio State throughout her short recruiting process, but said her trip to UConn this week was so good, it made the decision tougher than she anticipated. “There’s a reason coach (Geno) Auriemma and Connecticut have been so successful, and I was fortunate to be able to experience that first hand,” she said. Ultimately, she chose Ohio State. She’d formed a close bond with Buckeyes’ coach Jim Foster and the team on her visit two weeks ago. “His personality reminds me a lot of (Hart High) coach (Dave) Munroe, and we had a great relationship,” she said. “He’s the kind of coach who doesn’t have to raise his voice, or yell or scream, his players just naturally respect him. “He’s an amazing basketball coach, all you have to do is look at what he’s done to see that. But I also think he will help me grow as a person, and we’ll have a great relationship.” Ramona Shelburne, (818) 713-3617 ramona.shelburne@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

She said she still was undecided until she returned home late Friday night. She won’t have much time to get ready for her new school. She’s flying today to Columbus, Ohio, where classes begin Jan. 3. Because of NCAA transfer rules, she will have to sit out one year, meaning she’ll be eligible to play for the Buckeyes in December. Ohio State returns most of its core group next year, including 6-5 All-American center Jessica Davenport, who will be a senior. The 5-foot-9 guard was a Parade All-American at Hart, where she holds nearly every school record. She committed to UCLA in the fall of her junior year, but didn’t last long in baby blue and gold. Just four games into her freshman season, on Nov. 30, Trebilcock announced her intention to transfer. UCLA granted her release to any school outside the Pacific 20 Conference. Within a week, she had over 30 scholarship offers. She narrowed the list to four – Ohio State, Connecticut, Oklahoma and Georgia – and visited the first three before canceling her trip to Georgia this week. center_img It’s take two for Ashlee Trebilcock.
