Spaniards around the world: Hugo López, José Kanté, Onwu …

first_imgMuch better was the Asturian striker Hugo López, who signed the first poker of his career in the victory by four goals to zero of Dhofar FC against Al Nahda. Salalah’s are second in the First Division of Oman, just three points from Seeb. Yes, he is the leader, although in the Indian I-League, the Mohun Bagan of Kibu Vicuña, who this weekend achieved a meritorious victory (6-2) against Neroca. The central Cordoba Fran González signed a ‘hat-trick’ and his partner on the back line, Fran Morante, also scored. Joseba Beitia, on the other hand, gave three assists.In the Indian Super League, bad news for López Habas’ ATK, which fell 1-3 against Chennaiyin and failed to become the first club to link five consecutive victories this season; and good for Manuel Onwu, who scored and assisted in the triumph (2-1) of Odisha against North East United. Since his arrival on Josep Gombau’s team, the Navarrese striker has scored four goals and given an assist in three games. It was also a great weekend for the Gohar goal of the Andalusian physical trainer Pepe Losada, who defeated the Sanat-Naft 1-2 and managed to leave the relegation zone in the First Division of Iran.On the opening day of the Thai League (First Division of Thailand) he highlighted Sergio Suarez, which only needed five minutes to overtake Port FC against Nakhom Ratchasima. David Rochela also started and the lions ended up scoring 4-1. They also won the Chonburi of Carli de Murga, the Ratchaburi of Javier Patiño and the Pathum United of Daniel García ‘Toti’ and Álvaro Silva.Michel, undefeated in MexicoIn America, Pumas stands out, who had to overcome against Toluca to keep his undefeated in the MX League. The team led by Michel González ended up winning 2-3 and leads the Mexican First Division alone. Although in Bolivia, the Real Potosí of Fran Pastor also starred in a prestigious victory, which won 4-1 to Jorge Wilstermann, champion of the last Clausura. The Spaniard also scored two goals: he opened the can in the 6 ‘and put his team back in the 63’. Spanish soccer players and coaches competing outside our borders continue to give what to talk about. José Kanté’s scoring streak with Warsaw Legia, Hugo Lopez’s goal poker in Oman or Benali’s first triumph as coach of Ittihad Tanger, among others, marked the weekend in a ‘Spanish for the world’ key.The good news comes to TripoliEverything seemed to indicate that the season would be bitter again in Tripoli, but a run of good results has risen to the Asteras, the most ‘Spanish’ team in Greece, to the group for the championship in the Super League helena. The group of Ángel Martínez, Dani Suárez, José Valiente, Borja Fernández, Eneko Capilla, Xesc Regis, Luis Fernández, Sito Pascual, Adrián Riera and Eneko Jauregui defeated Volos 0-1 and, after chaining five days without losing, momentarily occupies a sixth place that would allow him to fight for a place in Europe. Óscar Whalley’s OFI Crete could take it away if he defeats Atromitos on Monday.Another team that crosses an oasis in the desert is FC Voluntari de Pablo de Lucas, who defeated Chindia Targoviste with the Spaniard in ’11’ 1-2 and, after winning three of his last four games, begins to dream of a stay in the Romanian First Division that is still far away. In Poland it is much closer to Górnik Zabrze, who won his third consecutive victory at home after defeating Arka 2-0. Igor Angulo missed a penalty in the first half, but he avenged his mistake by opening the score after an assist from Jesús Jiménez seven minutes from the end.He also missed a penalty Erik Expósito and his team, the Slask Wroclaw, did pay dearly. Those from Wrocław could not count on Israel Port and did not go from zero to a draw in a direct duel for the top positions of the Ekstraklasa against Pogon. At the top of the Polish First Division, the Legia de Warsaw will continue for another week despite its draw (2-2) in the Rakow field. The legionaries saved a point thanks to the Catalan José Kanté, who returned to ‘wet’ and already has 10 points in his last 11 official matches.Continuing on the Ekstraklasa, Dani Ramírez played his first official minutes with Lech Poznan, who could not take any prize from his visit to Krakow. He also debuted as a starter, in this case at LKS Lodz, former Antequera Antonio Dominguez. The ‘gentlemen of the spring’, in whose ’11’ also formed Carlos Moros, Pirulo and Samu Corral, reaped an insufficient draw at home in front of Angel Garcia’s Plock. Colistas continue.Luckier had St. Gallen, who without Victor Ruiz, sanctioned, fell on his visit to Lucerne. Those of San Galo, who did have the marshal Jordi Quintillà, continue to lead the Swiss Super League thanks to the stumbling block of the Young Boys, who fell 2-1 in the field of Lugano, a team that has the Spanish Luis Sánchez in his sports direction. He is also the leader, although in Azerbaijan, the Qarabag, which hit Zira 0-6 with the collaboration of Jaime Romero, who signed his first goal for riders since November 22.You have to go back further, until September 29, to remember the penultimate goal of Aleix Garcia with the Belgian Mouscron. Penultimate because the Catalan midfielder on loan from Manchester City became the protagonist of his team’s victory in the Waregem field. He first attended Osabutey in the 0-1 and then signed his fifth goal in the Pro League with a great shot from outside the area. De Fauw spicy a meeting that ended with a visiting victory.Xavi, closer to another title with Al SaddIn Asia, a new triumph of Xavi Hernández’s Al Sadd, which without Gabi Fernández in the call imposed on Qatar SC on penalties and acceded to the semifinals of the QSL Cup, was also noteworthy. It was also a good weekend for the coach of Vigo Oscar Bruzón, whose team, Bashundara Kings, started the Bangladesh Premier League with a minimum win over Baridhara. The competition also started, in this case the League Cup, in Japan: the Osaka Cherry Tree Michelangelo Lotina he beat Yamaga 4-1, while Isaac Cuenca’s Sendai, without the Spaniard in the call, fell 5-2 on his visit to Urawa. 01 ‘: Toluca 1-0 Pumas 33 ‘: Toluca 1-1 Pumas 37 ‘: Toluca 2-1 Pumas 58 ‘: Toluca 2-2 Pumas 69 ‘: Toluca 2-3 Pumas Pumas goes back to remain undefeated in the MX League. Michel González’s team is already a solo leader. 💪– Migrants of the Ball (@migrantesbalon) February 16, 2020In Ecuador we attended the start of the Pro League. Miguel Ramírez’s Independiente del Valle, with Dani Nieto in the ’11’ starter, defeated Mushuc Runa 2-1, while Angel Lopez’s Dolphin won 1-2 to Aucas in a meeting that had to be suspended and resumed 24 hours later due to a failure in lighting. The Emelec of Ismael Rescalvo, meanwhile, tied (2-2) in the Orense field.The Opening in Uruguay also started, where Peñarol managed to start the championship with victory thanks to the Catalan striker Xisco Jiménez. Despite not playing a great game, the team led by Diego Forlán took the three points of the Century Champion. Xisco made the 1-0 in the 10 ‘, Cerro managed to tie in half an hour but Jesus Trindade, already in the 90’, unleashed the madness in Montevideo. He suffered much less Envigado in Colombia. The team led by José Arastey won Atlético Bucaramanga 4-0, which ended with a three-day run without knowing the win.Although in Morocco, the Spanish coach Ittihad Tanger also resumed the flight Juan Pedro Benali, who achieved his first victory in charge of the blue and white after defeating FAR Rabat 2-1. They continue to decline, although salvation is only one point away. In the last positions of the Second Division of the African country the Chabab Rif Hoceima of the assistant Sebastián Álvarez continues. Alhucemas tied 0-0 at the home of Marrakech and chained three games without knowing defeat.last_img read more

Lara fails again

first_imgSHARJAH, UAE (CMC): Brian Lara’s struggles with the bat continued while former West Indies teammate Fidel Edwards bowled a poor final over as their Leo Lions went down by four wickets to Virgo Super Kings in the Masters Champions League yesterday. Promoting himself to the opening slot, the left-handed Lara managed just one before he was stumped off left-arm spinner Murali Karthik with the sixth delivery of the game at the Sharjah Cricket Stadium. Lara, who is captaining the side, now has scores of eight, nought, and one in his three innings. New Zealander James Franklyn top-scored with 44 from 33 balls with two fours and two sixes, while South African Johan Botha chipped in with 27 from 24 deliveries with two fours and a six. Lions were wandering at 102 for seven in the 17th over when Franklyn and Zimbabwean Heath Streak (21 not out) arrived to add 44 off 20 balls in an unbroken eighth-wicket partnership. In reply, Pakistani Azhar Mahmood lashed 48 from 28 balls with four fours and two sixes, while Neil McKenzie got 30 off 34 deliveries to put Super Kings on course for victory. However, they still needed 15 off the last over and Edwards managed just seven runs from the first four deliveries. Englishman James Foster then turned the game on its head when he blasted a six and a four off the last two deliveries to deliver Virgo Kings a dramatic win. Edwards went wicket-less from his four overs, which cost 41 runs.last_img read more

first_imgThe Administration of the United Methodist University (UMU) has commended the management of the Cavalla Rubber Corporation (CRC) for an US$88,000 check the company recently presented to the university in support of its Agriculture College.In a formal letter of appreciation to the company under the signature of UMU’s Interim president, Johnson Gwaikolo, the Administration said: “We express our thanks and appreciation to you and the entire management of the CRC for the kind gesture rendered the UMU, especially the Agriculture College.” Mr. Gwaikolo said the company’s contribution exemplifies the goodness and integrity of CRC’s management to the students, adding, “Your contribution will help boost student enrollment to the Agriculture College.” The CRC check was presented to the UMU Administration on behalf of the company by Cllr.

AFC to fight for 60 per cent of seats secured after polls

first_imgCoalition LGE talks…or break away from coalition, ride soloBy Michael YoungeAs the Alliance for Change (AFC) is, over the next two days, readying itself for the next round of talks with A Partnership for National Unity (APNU) about contesting the upcoming Local Government polls under a united list, there are within the AFC those who are pressuring the Executive to demand that the AFC be given 60 percent of the total seats secured after the elections.This would mean that that party would have to field 60 percent of the candidates to contest key areas across various municipalities, districts and town councils, while the APNU and its partners would have to settle for fielding just 40 percent of the candidates thereof.“We are in the process of submitting a proposal to the negotiation team headed by Minister David Patterson, to have him seriously consider making this demand as a means of testing the sincerity and commitment of the APNU to the coalition. We didn’t get what we deserved after the last elections…but this time we are not playing games”, a senior AFC Executive told the Guyana Times on Thursday morning during an interview.The Executive, who is not yet ready to be named publicly, said there is strongPresident Granger and Prime Minister Nagamootoo in happier timessupport for the position that will be articulated in the proposal, which will be shared with other party Executives in a strategic manner.“We want them to know that we are not ploys, and that we can work together to keep the PPP out and far away from securing an outright victory, as they managed to do in key areas at the last LGE polls. It is also important to us that we send a strong signal to the PPP and their propagandists that we are not dead meat, as Khemraj had said”, this Executive member maintained.The AFC team is officially headed by Minister Patterson, while the APNU team is headed by its General Secretary, Joseph Harmon. To avoid tension during the negotiations, both sides have agreed to keep under wraps the discussions and types of proposals which are being considered and made, until the time is right for disclosure.But this source, who sits on the AFC Executive and is a privy to the discussions, told this newspaper that a faction in the party believes that, in the interest of transparency, members of the public and supporters of the AFC ought to know what is taking place at the negotiations.“The mood is that party members do not want them to make a decision that is binding for all of them…they want to understand the terms and conditions properly. They want it discussed and voted on before any agreement is reached…cause this won’t go down like in 2015…it’s either they give us more seats and more power, or we will walk away and go solo,” the Executive maintained.Meanwhile, the coalition, in a brief statement on Wednesday evening, said it discussed at its Monday meeting “several national issues that required urgent attention, including arriving at an agreement for contesting Local Government Elections and Constitutional Reform”.“The meeting was conducted in an atmosphere of the highest cordiality, and was most productive. This process will continue in earnest in the coming weeks. The coalition partners have agreed to release joint statements at appropriate times”, the statement ended.The meeting took place on Monday afternoon following insistence of the Alliance For Change and the dispatch of several pieces of legislation between the two coalition partners.The talks between the AFC and APU come on the heels of the first partner issuing an ultimatum last week to discuss several key issues before a formal decision is made by the AFC to coalesce for the polls.On May 1, the AFC gave President David Granger fourteen days for the meeting to take place, after its executives had raised concerns about neglect, disrespect, and unfair treatment from APNU.last_img read more

Transportation plan idles as councillors choose to further debate project list

first_img“We do want to promote cycling when we can, its about having them when they are needed and desired.Coun. Gord Klassen supported the proposed new bike infrastructure.“Long term what we’re trying to do is help to change behaviour,” he said.“I think it’s an investment in more than just a bike lane.”Other parts of the plan call for establishing new residential road widths, establishing new sidewalks and boulevards, extending connector streets, and beefing up crosswalks.Advertisement Donnelly said it wasn’t in the plan’s scope to consider rail traffic, and added that the Alaska Highway will remain the major highway route in the region.“That’s not going to change in the short term, or the immediate term,” he said.“(The bypass roads can) accommodate future growth as long as they are built to ensure limited number of intersections.” Some of the bigger ticket projects include a $10-million plan to four-lane the West Bypass Road, and an $11-million plan to four-lane 100 Street between 110 and 119 avenues. It also includes another $1.4 million in work to add bike routes along 85 Avenue and 90 Street, and a $3.7-million plan to extend 105 Avenue to the West Bypass and add a multi-use trail along portions of that road.Coun. Trevor Bolin criticized the plan for not considering the need for new bypass roads as land to the west of the city and near the hospital are slated for residential development in the future. Existing bypass roads will quickly become residential roads and shouldn’t be used for heavy industrial traffic, he said.“We’re trying to look at the big picture,” he said.Coun. Larry Evans added the plan failed to take into account the rail lines that trail the northern boundary of the city that will slice through new subdivisions as well.“It’s a certain type of traffic that makes it dangerous to have a bypass in residential area, on top of the railroad,” he said.Advertisement City councillors stopped short of fully endorsing a $66-million transportation development blueprint for the future of Fort St. John, instead choosing reorganize the plan’s 15-point priority project list.Representatives from Urban Systems, hired to conduct the city’s master transportation plan, appeared before council Monday afternoon to present a plan councillors deemed top-heavy on new cycling infrastructure, but light on major new roads they say are needed more to meet the growing pains of the city.Councillors voted to send the plan to a future committee of the whole meeting to discuss the projects identified in the plan, from a $3.7-million downtown bike network to a $9.6-million plan to connect the North and West bypass roads.- Advertisement -“It’s an in-depth and robust report,” said Mayor Lori Ackerman.“There are parts we like, parts we’d like to see changed.”Councillors appeared to have the toughest time swallowing a litany of proposed new on-street bike routes they see would only be used for half of the year.Advertisement “That’s a lot of investment for a six month exercise, unless we’re going to create something year round,” said Ackerman, suggesting the city take a bolder look at more “human-powered” transportation, and envisioning the bike routes for multiple uses for the winter, such as snowshoeing or cross-country skiing.“Are we doing the right thing where, done differently, it could be a 12-month space instead of a six month space?”James Donnelly with Urban Systems said a network of bike lanes and separated multi-use trails throughout the city would encourage use, saying the the lack of “comfortable” cycling infrastructure was a common refrain heard during consultations.“On-street bike routes are going to be used infrequently, that’s understood, though I wouldn’t say never. We have changes in weather,” he said.Advertisementlast_img read more
