First Division Title Race: Oilers’ Unbeaten Run Continues

first_imgWednesday’s result sent Oilers six points ahead of BYC and Watanga FC The deciding moment of the 2018/19 LFA-Orange First Division league is nearing as the league gradually draws to a close.With eight games left to be played, league leaders LPRC Oilers continued their unbeaten run on Wednesday, May 15, at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium after a 1-1 draw against LISCR FC.LISCR FC needed a late goal from Armah Vaikainah to force the league leaders to the one-all draw. The deserving equalizer came in the 85th minute after LISCR intensified the pressure in their attacks with forward Edward Ledlum leading the attack.Oilers had gone ahead in the first half thanks to a 40th minute goal from Dominic Jarteh.LISCR’s equalizer also brought to an end goalkeeper Prince Wlame’s clean sheet streak after keeping eight successive clean sheets and has so far kept 11 in 14 games.The result was not a good one for LISCR as they dropped to the fourth position. However, it was a significant result for Oilers as head Coach Cooper Sannah described LISCR as one of the biggest bridges that he has crossed on his championship journey.“I am partly convinced that my team will go undefeated this season, because LISCR is one of the best clubs as compared to BYC, now that we have them behind us, the other smaller teams, no disrespect to them, we are going to win them,” Coach Sannah said in his post-match interview.Wednesday’s result sent Oilers six points ahead of BYC and Watanga FC that moved up to the third position following their 3-1 against Keitrace FC on Wednesday at the Nancy B. Doe Stadium.In other league games, Barrack Young Controllers stumble along the way after falling to a 2-1 defeat against Nimba United at the North Star Sports pitch in Mount Barclay.Striker Mustapha Lomell, former striker of Nimba United, scored the opener for BYC, before Varney Dukuly and Morris Janteh came to the ‘Mountaineers’ rescue. It was striker Dukuly’s 13th goal out of 14 games, moving level with Christopher Jackson of LISCR FC.United remained in their same fifth position, but are now leveled on points with LISCR FC.Earlier at the ATS, FC Fassell and Monrovia Club Breweries settled to a 1-1. The draw moved Breweries a step above to the sixth position with 17 points out of 14 games, while Fassell remained at the bottom of the table with four points.Elsewhere, relegation battled, Jubilee FC suffered a 2-1 defeat against 9th placed NPA Anchors, while Nimba FC made five consecutive home wins by defeating Small Town FC 2-1 at the Ganta Sports pitch in Ganta, Nimba County.The league will continue on Sunday with another six games taking place at various venues across the country.Sunday, May 19, 2019 Fixtures:LPRC Oilers vs. NPA Anchors -Kakata- 2:00PMKeitrace FC vs. FC Fassell- Kakata- 4:00-PMWatanga FC vs. Nimba United- ATS- 2:00PMSmall Town FC vs. LISCR FC -ATS- 4:00PMBYC vs. Jubilee FC – Blue Field- 4:00PMNimba FC vs. MC Breweries- Ganta- 4:00PMShare this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Gunman ID’d as suspect in BM Soat shooting

first_imgHigh-speed Police chaseOne of the three men nabbed on Monday after a high-speed chase with Police, was positively identified as one of the bandits who shot and robbed BM Soat Auto Dealer, Rameez Mohamed.This was confirmed by A Division (Georgetown-East Bank Demerara) Commander, Clifton Hicken, who told Guyana Times that investigations are ongoing and assured that more information will be revealed today.Shot: Rameez MohamedIn late October, 28-year-old Mohamed was exiting the establishment on Croal Street, Georgetown, when two men rode up on a motorcycle and shot him to the left leg. The perpetrators then escaped with an undisclosed sum of cash.Mohamed was taken to a private hospital in the city, while the Police launched an investigation.Meanwhile, on Monday, after almost an hour of chasing a suspicious car with fake registration plates, the Police took three men, including an ex-Guyana Police Force (GPF) officer, into custody.Two of the men were identified as Eloy Livan, 28, of Lot 47 Richards Town, Lusignan, East Coast Demerara; and Devon Chase, 30, of Hill Street, Albouystown. The third suspect refused to cooperate with Police.A 9mm pistol and 10 live rounds of ammunition were also found in the vehicle.However, it is still uncertain whether the third suspect was identified and whether the perpetrator in the BM Soat shooting was among those identified.last_img read more

Lyon president confirms Lacazette to complete Arsenal move within next 48 hours

first_imgAlexandre Lacazette is set to join Arsenal in the coming days for around £44million, according to Lyon president Jean-Michel Aulas.The France striker has been linked with a move to the Gunners for much of this summer as they seek to lift themselves into Premier League title contention.The outspoken Aulas has previously insisted Lacazette is going nowhere this summer.But, quoted in Le Progres on Sunday, he said: “The transfer of Alexandre Lacazette to Arsenal could be completed in a day or two.”The deal for Lacazette will eclipse Arsenal’s previous record transfer of £42.5m for Mesut Ozil in 2013.Aulas said: “The 67million (euros, £58.75m) announced by sources in England is an unrealistic sum. Arsenal’s first offer was 45million and the transfer will be done for a fee of between 45 and 50million (£39.5m-44m).“Being close to 50million is something unique and would undoubtedly be a record for Arsenal, and also for Lyon of course.”The 26-year-old has been one of the most prolific strikers in Europe in recent years, having struck 76 league goals over the last three seasons.Despite Lacazette’s imminent arrival, Arsenal still hope to keep hold of Alexis Sanchez.The Chilean forward has just 12 months left on his contract and is refusing to sign a new deal amid interest from Manchester City.Sanchez said last this week he has made his mind up over his future – but refused to reveal his plans. 1 Alexandre Lacazette has been in prolific form for Lyon in recent years last_img read more

More South Africans getting educated

first_img30 October 2012 South Africans are becoming increasingly better educated, according to the country’s latest census, with the proportion of children at school showing a marked increase, as well as the percentage of people who have completed their secondary schooling. Statistics South Africa released the results of census 2011, the country’s third population count since democratic elections were first held in 1994, in Pretoria on Tuesday. The previous censuses took place in 2001 and 1996. There has been a general increase in the percentage of South Africans from the ages of five up to 15 attending school, the census 2011 results show. Enrolment for the five-year-old age group increased from 22.5% in 1996 to 45.6% in 2001 to 81.2% in 2011. For the six-year-old age group, these figures were at 49.1% in 1996, 70.3% in 2001 and 92.7% in 2011, while for the seven-year-old group they were at 73.1% in 1996, 88.4% in 2001 and 96.1% in 2011. “The vast majority of students in South Africa attend public educational institutions. Only 5% of those aged 5 to 24 years, who were attending educational institutions in 2001, attended private institutions as opposed to the 7.3% in 2011,” the census report states.Increase in private school attendance There was a general increase in private school attendance across all the provinces, with the highest in Gauteng at 16.7%, followed by the Western Cape at 7.5% and the Free State at 6.4%. All other provinces had private institution attendance rates of less than 5%. An increase in black Africans aged between 5 and 24 years attending educational institutions was also recorded. Figures for this population group increased steadily from 70.7% in 1996 to 72.1% in 2001, to 73.9% in 2011. Attendance rates among coloured, Indian/Asian and white population groups also increased. The results also showed that the proportion of individuals aged 20 who have no schooling, halved from 19.1% in 1996 to 8.6% in 2011. “There is a significant decrease in persons with no schooling over the 10 years,” the report states. In addition, the percentage of South Africans aged 20 years and older that have received no formal education has decreased steadily between 1996 and 2011. In 1996, 17% of males in this age group had no formal education. This decreased to 15.5% in 2001 and further to 7.2% in 2011. Among females, the percentage with no formal education declined from 20.9% in 1996, to 20% in 2001 and 9.9% in 2011. A notable improvement was also recorded in the number of people who had completed their education. “The proportion of persons who completed secondary education (matric) or higher increased from 23.4% in 1996 to 40.5% in 2011,” the report states.

AB de Villiers’ sensational come back ton helps South Africa regain No. 1 ODI rank

first_imgAB de Villiers returned from his sabbatical with a blistering 176 off 104 balls to set up South Africa’s series-clinching 104-run win over Bangladesh in their second one-day international on Wednesday.De Villiers hit his career-best score in 50-over cricket in his first international innings in four months, taking South Africa to 353-6 after it was put in to bat by Bangladesh at Boland Park.A career best score in ODIs wins @ABdeVilliers17 the POTM award for the 2nd #SAvBAN ODI: best ever ODI innings? ICC (@ICC) October 18, 2017Round of applause for these career-best performances. #ProteaFire @ABdeVilliers17 @andileluck19 #SAvBAN Cricket South Africa (@OfficialCSA) October 18, 2017Bangladesh replied with 249 all out, with 21-year-old seamer Andile Phehlukwayo claiming 4-40.South Africa leads the three-match series 2-0, and now has the luxury of resting some of its big names for the final game on Sunday. Bangladesh is still searching for its first win over the Proteas on the tour, having also lost the test series 2-0.Imrul Kayes made 68 for Bangladesh at the top of the order and Mushfiqur Rahim hit 60, but it wasn’t enough as they chased South Africa’s big score.That big total was mainly down to the improvisation and power-hitting of De Villiers, who arrived with South Africa on 90-2 and left just over two overs from the end with his team 343-4.He was part of century stands with Hashim Amla (85) and JP Duminy (30), and was the driving force of both, making 86 of the 136 runs he put on with Amla and 90 of the 117 he put on with Duminy.advertisementCongratulations @OfficialCSA – you’re back on top of the @MRFWorldwide ODI team rankings! ???? #SAvBAN ICC (@ICC) October 18, 2017De Villiers’ last international was at the Champions Trophy in England in June. He skipped the test series against England and Bangladesh to rest and spend time with his family.The break appears to have been well-timed for the 33-year-old former South Africa captain. He collected 15 fours and seven sixes on his way to the fourth highest score by a South African in ODIs. He was out caught in the deep only 12 runs short of Gary Kirsten’s South African record of 188 not out.De Villiers took only 68 balls to get to 100, and only 25 balls to go from 100 to 150, when he launched a flurry of sixes over square leg and midwicket.Amla and Quinton de Kock (46) set South Africa up with a solid opening partnership of 90 but it was De Villiers’ acceleration in the middle and late overs that took the game beyond Bangladesh.Rubel Hossain was Bangladesh’s best bowler with 4-62, including the wicket of De Villiers and two in two balls in the last over.last_img read more

‘It’s not fair to compare Salah to Messi’ – Gerrard

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player After a James Milner shot hit the post, Salah pounced on the rebound, chipped it over Porto goalkeeper Jose Sa, headed it to himself past a diving Diego Reyes and then put it into the empty net to give Liverpool a 2-0 lead.And that goal left Reds great and current under-18 manager Gerrard impressed, who also thought Porto were simply overwhelmed by the Premier League side’s attack.“Liverpool have had too much aggression for Porto. They look like they can score every time they go forward,’ Gerrard said on BT Sport .“And we’ve seen a moment of magic from Mo Salah.“It’s not fair to the kid, though, to compare him to Messi.”Wednesday’s win was a long time coming for Liverpool, who had not been in the knockout rounds of the Champions League since the 2008-09 season, when Gerrard was a starring member of the Reds cast. Salah’s goal was his 30th in all competitions this season, as he became the first Liverpool player to achieve that feat since Luis Suarez in the 2013-14 season. Only Harry Kane has more goals in the top five European leagues this season than Salah.It was also Salah’s fifth straight game in all competitions with a goal, with the second leg set to take place at Anfield on 6 March.  Subscribe to Goal’s Liverpool Correspondent Neil Jones’ weekly email bringing you the best Liverpool FC writing from around the weblast_img read more

There’s A Big Update In Kelly Bryant’s Transfer From Clemson

first_imgKelly Bryant #2 of the Clemson Tigers reacts after his team scores a touchdown against the South Carolina Gamecocks during their game at Williams-Brice Stadium.COLUMBIA, SC – NOVEMBER 25: Kelly Bryant #2 of the Clemson Tigers reacts after his team scores a touchdown against the South Carolina Gamecocks during their game at Williams-Brice Stadium on November 25, 2017 in Columbia, South Carolina. (Photo by Streeter Lecka/Getty Images)It appears that we’re a step closer to the eventual Kelly Bryant transfer from Clemson.The Tigers’ quarterback situation got even more interesting on Saturday, during a narrow home win over Syracuse.Trevor Lawrence left the game early after taking a big hit from Orange defensive back Evan Foster. With Bryant off the roster, the job fell to Chase Brice, and a dynamic Clemson rushing attack, to lead the Tigers back from a two score deficit to win the game.The injury looked like it might be a rough one at the time, but Dabo Swinney has expressed optimism about Lawrence’s status ahead of a game against Wake Forest. The former five-star recruit is expected to play.After the injury, some speculated about the Kelly Bryant transfer status, but he is not going to return to the team.According to Rivals’ Woody Wommack, Bryant has received his released from the program.A source close to the situation tells me that Kelly Bryant received his release papers from Clemson today and will now begin communicating with college coaches. Bryant has already graduated but schools were hesitant to contact him directly until he had the written release.— Woody Wommack (@RivalsWoody) October 3, 2018As Wommack notes, Bryant is already a Clemson graduate, which allows him to play next year for what will likely be a wide array of teams. Now, he can begin that process.Among the many schools that have been floated as potential landing spots for Bryant are Auburn, FAU, Florida State, NC State, Ole Miss, Penn State, Syracuse, and Wisconsin.Some of those seem realistic. Others are fun to think about, but make less sense.Wherever he winds up, we should find out in the coming months.last_img read more
