first_imgEdwards urges T&T to take ‘bull by the horns’ PORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Veteran winger Carlos Edwards has reiterated the importance of taking early initiative when Trinidad and Tobago meet Panama in the first of two crucial World Cup qualifiers starting next week. Currently one from bottom of the CONCACAF final round of qualifiers, Trinidad will attempt to launch a comeback against Panama and then against confederation giants Mexico four days later. “It is something where we need to take the bull by the horns. As players, we have to take responsibilities,” said the 38-year-old, a member of the historic 2008 side which qualified for the World Cup in Germany. “We know what is at hand, and we know what it takes to win a game. I can say that the guys know this. They will go out there and put their best foot forward when they cross that white line.” Mbappe gets first call up PARIS, France (AP): Teenage forward Kylian Mbappe has been rewarded for his scintillating club performances with Monaco with his first call up to France’s national team. The 18-year-old Mbappe, whose speed and skills have led to comparisons with France great Thierry Henry, was included yesterday in coach Didier Deschamp’s squad for a World Cup qualifier in Luxembourg and a friendly against Spain. Deschamps called up three other newcomers in his list of 24 players: Monaco defender Benjamin Mendy, Marseille winger Florian Thauvin, and highly-rated Lyon midfielder Corentin Tolisso. Mbappe made it 11 goals in 11 games when he scored in a 3-1 win on Wednesday as Monaco eliminated Manchester City on away goals to reach the Champions League quarter-finals. He had scored in the first leg and so far this season has netted 17 goals. Hayatou’s reign ends ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia (AP): Issa Hayatou was voted out as president of the African soccer confederation yesterday after 29 years in charge, ending his tenure as FIFA senior vice-president. Hayatou’s 34-20 loss to Ahmad in a vote by the Confederation of African Football’s member countries delivered a seismic shake-up for soccer on the continent, which Hayatou had led since 1988. The 70-year-old from Cameroon left the congress room briefly without commenting when the result was announced, led away by the arm by one of his aides. He returned to conduct other business. New CAF president Ahmad, who is from Madagascar and goes by one name, was held aloft by officials.last_img read more

KC’s appeal thrown out

first_img FINAL SAY Inter-secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA) competitions director George Forbes said yesterday that Kingston College (KC) has no further room to appeal its decision to disqualify 800 metres runner Colin Rowe at the ISSA/GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships earlier this month. The North Street-based institution had written a formal appeal to ISSA about Rowe’s disqualification after he was adjudged to be in breach of IAAF rule 163.2b, in his seventh-place finish in the Class One boys 800m. This rule outlaws jostling for position in the race, and obstruction. If he had not been disqualified, KC and Calabar High would have ended Champs equal on points, but the purple and whites would have won the championships based on number of events won overall. Forbes said that IAAF’s rules and guidelines have protected ISSA from further dealing with the matter, should KC decide to take it further. “It went through the jury of appeal, and the rules are quite clear: The jury of appeal has the final say. Not even the Court of Arbitration for Sport can overturn that appeal ruling,” Forbes told The Gleaner. He said that this also means KC cannot even go to the Court of Arbitration for Sport in Lausanne, Switzerland, but should the school decide to take the matter to court, he will not try to stop them. “KC can do whatever KC wants to do,” he said. “We can’t stop them from taking it to court. The rules are quite clear that it can’t be overturned. The IAAF website states this. The jury of appeal is the final arbiter on the matter.” The Gleaner visited the school to speak to officials, including principal Dave Myrie and track and field head coach Neil Harrison, but were told all relevant members of staff were absent from the premises at the time. Neither Myrie nor Harrison answered subsequent phone calls.last_img read more

Facey fueled by family for Barbados Test

first_imgMother’s Day was extra special for Stacy-Ann Facey.For the Sunshine Girl who is gearing up for this weekend’s three-Test series against Barbados, her son is everything. As it relates to her mom, no one compares.”My biggest motivation is my son. My mother is my hero,” declared Facey.”He gives me the drive whenever I feel like I need to quit or I need to give up. It’s like he’s like a vision. Whenever something goes wrong and I feel like it’s time, it’s like he’s there saying, ‘Mommy, you can’t give up’,” she declared of her five-year-old.”Whenever I feel I’m going down or I feel depressed, he’s there. I have to keep it strong for him,” she added.Facey reciprocates those feelings for her mother, Janet Reid.”She’s been there for me ever since,” she stated.”She’s the one who’s keeping my son right now,” said Facey, referring to the times when she is away training with the Sunshine Girls or studying at the G.C. Foster College.”She’s so supportive and she’s there. Mi just haffi love her!” Facey added.Her passion does not stop there as she pours a great deal of energy into the clear number-one sport for females in this country.”I had to choose between basketball and netball, and I chose netball,” she admitted, noting the importance of playing for Jamaica.”To be a Sunshine Girl is everything. To go and represent your country is such a wonderful feeling.”Already, the Kingston Hummingbirds and G.C. Foster College defender has been capped 17 times for Jamaica. A former Under-21 Jamaica representative, Facey’s experience also includes playing at the Netball World Cup, Commonwealth Games and a Test series against Barbados.For the May 19-22 series against Barbados, Facey, who plays the goalkeeper, goal defence and wing defence positions, is ready for action.LOOK FORWARD TO THE SERIES”I’m looking forward to the series,” she said. “We’re going out there to compete and we can’t let Barbados beat ‘wi’. Never! Because they’re beneath us and they should stay there, because we’re trying to be in the number-one spot right now, so we can’t let a lower team (beat us). No matter if half of our players aren’t here, we have to keep strong.”In terms of championing the world, Facey, who turns 24 in August, has strong belief in the Sunshine Girls’ capabilities.”I’ve a good feeling about it. We can do it, ‘enuh’. We just need good resources and good support and a strong foundation to move forward,” she observed.last_img read more

Division I-A appears to be tough, too

first_imgBut when the divisions were realigned for this season, Los Alamitos was left out of I-AA, where perennial powers Mater Dei, Artesia, Dominguez and Centennial now reside. Instead, the Griffins were put in I-A, but coach Russ May warned not to let the division fool you. DIVISION I-AA Top seeds: 1. Mater Dei (24-3), 2. Artesia (24-2), 3. Dominguez (18-7), 4. Gahr (24-4). Local teams: Downey (16-12), Mayfair (19-6), Lakewood (13-13), Compton (23-3), La Mirada (19-7), St. John Bosco (15-12), Poly (17-10), Centennial (19-5), Jordan (18-9), Wilson (15-12), Bellflower (10-15), Warren (16-11). Outlook: Obviously, the Monarchs and the Pioneers are the favorites to reach the Honda Center on March 3, but don’t discount the Dons, Gladiators or the Tarbabes. Duke signee Taylor King (28 ppg) leads Mater Dei, but it already lost once this season to Artesia. Arizona State signee James Harden had another fine year for the Pioneers and if he’s having a bad night, then 6-10 sophomore forward Renardo Sidney and Malik Story, who’s committed to USC, are more than capable of picking up the scoring slack. Both Dominguez coach Russell Otis and Gahr coach Bob Becker did fantastic jobs with their squads and both teams are battle- tested after splitting their games this season in the San Gabriel Valley League. Look for Compton to play Gahr in the quarterfinals after the Tarbabes won the Moore League for the first time in 10 years. They have one of the area’s most talented players in junior forward Demar Derozan, and throw in 6-9 forward Edgar Garibay and you have a powerful 1-2 punch. Another team that figures to be tough to beat is Mayfair. The Monsoons lost twice this season to Artesia, but they shouldn’t be overlooked. Jonathan Wills can carry a team and if all goes as planned, Mayfair would meet Mater Dei in the quarterfinals. Centennial had another good season under Rod Palmer, winning the Pioneer League. It plays Jordan on Friday, but if the Apaches are going to make some noise, they would have to beat Artesia in another quarterfinal game Feb. 23. Finals: Mater Dei vs. Artesia. DIVISION I-AA Top seeds: 1. Redondo (22-4), 2. M.L. King (24-3), 3. Los Alamitos (22-4), 4. El Toro (23-3). Local teams: None. Outlook: Redondo enters the playoffs on a five-game winning streak and King has two pretty good scorers in Eric Wise (18.7 ppg) and Carlon Brown (17 ppg) to fall back on. But, this is really Los Al’s division to lose. The Griffins are playing their best basketball of the season as is 6-9 forward Corbin Moore, who’s been a monster since he lost his starting spot 10 games ago. Couple Jones, Amberry’s and Moore’s scoring and the fact that this team knows how to win big games, it makes it very difficult not to pick them to reach the finals once again. Their toughest test might be in the second round where they could play the winner of the Dos Pueblos/Leuzinger game. Each team is tough and if Los Alamitos can get past that game, that should serve as springboard to the title. Finals: Redondo vs. Los Alamitos. DIVISION IV-A Top seeds: 1. Twentynine Palms (24-2), 2. St. Anthony (23-3). 3. Whittier Christian (24-4), 4. La Salle (21-5). Local teams: Valley Christian (20-6). Outlook: If a Coach of the Year award were to be given out before the playoffs, Valley Christian’s Bryan Branderhorst would have already won it. After an absolutely miserable season by V.C. last year, Branderhorst has turned around the Crusaders, who finished in second place in the Alpha League behind Jeff Rochon (13 ppg), Blake De Jong (11 ppg) and Kurtis Korver, whose cousin Kyle plays for the 76ers. Of course, St. Anthony’s Glenn Marx hasn’t done that bad of a job himself. The Saints won a league title (Santa Fe) for the first time in 19 years and Howard Douglas and Michael Cotton are as good as it gets. In addition, St. Anthony’s schedule was tough and the team is battle-tested. Finals: Twentynine Palms vs. St. Anthony. DIVISION V-AA Top seeds: 1. Maranatha (17-8), 2. Pacific Hills (17-8), 3. L.A. Adventist (20-3), 4. Fairmont Prep (18-9). Local teams: Avalon (13-6). Outlook: Maranatha and Pacific Hills tied for first place in the Delphic League, so no surprises there. But the team to really look out for is L.A. Adventist. The Eagles know how to put the ball in the basket and that’s going to make them difficult to beat. Twice this season, they scored more than 100 points and four times, they scored 80-plus. Finals: Maranatha vs. L.A. Adventist. L.A. CITY SECTION CHAMPIONSHIP DIVISION Top seeds: 1. Fairfax (19-5), 2. Westchester (19-5), 3. Polytechnic (21-4), 4. Chatsworth (19-7). Local teams: Narbonne (10-17), King-Drew (22-6). Outlook: It goes without saying that both Fairfax and Westchester are not only two of the best teams in the L.A. City Section but in the entire country. Fairfax, ranked No. 7 in the state, only lost to nationally ranked opponents such as Oak Hill Academy and St. Patrick of N.J. Chace Stanback (26.7 ppg, 11 rpg) is probably going to be the Player of the Year. Look out for King-Drew though. Despite the fact, it was seeded 11th, the Golden Eagles are a tough team to beat. They average almost 80 points a game in their run-and-gun style and Aaron Hill (21 ppg) is having a great year. Sterling Miller is also solid, recording nearly a double-double every game. Finals: Fairfax vs. Westchester. INVITATIONAL DIVISION Top seeds: 1. Bell (17-6), 2. Roosevelt (18-8), Huntington Park (17-4), 4. University (19-12). Local teams: San Pedro (10-19). Outlook: Bell probably should have made the Championship Division but playing in the lowly Eastern League probably hurt it come seeding time. However, it won’t be a surprise if the Eagles, led by Daniel Torres (16.9 ppg) are the ones standing at the end. Finals: Bell vs. Huntington Park. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Even though today is Valentines Day, the Los Alamitos High boy’s basketball team doesn’t need any gifts because it already got a sweetheart deal from the CIF. Last season, the Griffins won their first CIF Southern Section title in school history when they defeated Jordan, 71-61, in the Division I-AA championship game. center_img “It’s a tough division and maybe more importantly, it’s really balanced top to bottom,” May said. “I can think of 11 or 12 teams from just looking at our bracket that can win the title.” The Griffins enter the playoffs on a roll. Behind senior guard Cameron Jones and 6-foot-9 senior forward Clint Amberry, who are averaging 18 and 16 points a game, respectively, Los Alamitos (24-4) won the Sunset League title with a perfect 8-0 record and it’s currently riding a 16-game winning streak. The Griffins will begin their quest to win a second straight CIF-SS title at 7:30 p.m. Friday night when they host the winner of tonight’s Huntington Beach/Tustin game. “It’s a new year and a new team, but we do have three starters back from last season’s squad,” May said. “Hopefully some of the experience from winning a championship will carry over to this year.” Here’s a look at the rest of the divisions: last_img read more

Bad news for Norwich! Manchester United trio in line to return

first_imgWayne Rooney is expected to return to Manchester United’s starting XI against Norwich on Saturday.The United captain has missed the last three games with an ankle injury, but Louis van Gaal confirmed in his pre-match press conference that the 30-year-old has come through training unscathed this week.Rooney is in line to make his 500th appearance for the club at Old Trafford.United could also welcome back Chris Smalling and Ander Herrera against the Canaries, while Ashley Young has an outside chance of featuring.“Three or four players are coming back,” Van Gaal said.“They have trained a full week – Rooney has, for example. It is possible he can play, but we have to wait and see.“We have to decide if they can play or not because some players like Herrera have already been ‘out of the office’ for three or four weeks.”Rooney has only scored once for the club since October, and Van Gaal added: “I hope when he plays he scores a goal, because it is a big day for him.” Wayne Rooney 1last_img read more

Tottenham dealt blow in chase for £40million winger as his club demand premium

first_imgTottenham Hotspur have been dealt a huge blow in their chase for Aston Villa star Jack Grealish after the Midlands club’s new owners refused to let him go on the cheap.Villa boss Steve Bruce claims the American financer and Egyptian billionaire who now control the club will accept nothing less than a ‘premium’ for any of their star players. REVEALED 4 Tony Cascarino backs Everton to sign two strikers for Carlo Ancelotti The biggest market value losers in 2019, including Bale and ex-Liverpool star Villa’s new financial clout should allow them to hold out for £40m for the winger IN DEMAND 4 Chelsea confident of beating Man United and Liverpool to Sancho signing This has not been enough to placate some fans however, worried that the lack of incomings could be the start of a long-term period of austerity as they struggle to cover the £1billion cost of their new stadium.Just two weeks remain for Spurs to dip into their transfer budget before the window slams shut early on August 9.The club could be forced to put out a second-string side for their opener against Newcastle two days later, with a league-leading NINE players having made it all the way to the World Cup’s final weekend and requiring a longer break.Earlier this summer Bruce told talkSPORT that Grealish could play ‘for any team’, such was the level of his talent.
