Cumberland stun Dunoon

first_img Yesterday’s results Innswood 4 Kingston Technical 0 Spanish Town 0 Excelsior 1 Jonathan Grant 1 Vauxhall 0 Bridgeport 1 Wolmer’s 2 St George’s College vs Denham Town Today’s game Cumberland High, led by a second-half hat-trick by Leonard James, came from two goals down to score a shock 3-2 victory over Dunoon High in an ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup Group E game at Rockfort Sports Club field yesterday. The win gave Cumberland their first points of the 2015 competition. They had lost their previous eight matches. James fired home his goals in the 51st, 87th, and 90th minutes. Dunoon went 2-0 up courtesy of Shackel Campbell (14th) and substitute Kashief Gordon (42nd). Dunoon came into the game confident of victory against lowly Cumberland but remained on 10 points with two games remaining. They still have a mathematical chance of advancing to the next round. James was happy that he was able to score all the goals in his team’s first win of the season. “It’s a pleasure to score for the team. They know I am capable, and I went out there and executed. The coach (Wayne Fraser) told me how to play and I followed his instructions,” James, a 15 year-old in his second year in the Manning Cup, told The Gleaner. Fraser added: “The feeling is great! First, thank the Lord for this win today! Well, our senior players are just coming back into the team, so we have been playing better.” On the other hand, coach of Dunoon Gregory Hall was obviously disappointed that his team gave the game away in the dying moments. “We have so many things to work on,” Hall said. “We led comfortably and then lost the game, but they are youngsters, so I won’t come down hard on them. We remain optimistic (of advancing), with two games remaining in the round,” added Hall, a former Dunoon goalkeeper.last_img read more

Thursday Is Thanksgiving Day

first_imgTomorrow, November 6, 2014 has been declared National Thanksgiving Day and is to be observed throughout Liberia as a national holiday. All businesses and public houses are to be closed.President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf,  by a Proclamation issued this week, has called upon all Liberians and foreign residents, clergymen and women and all religious organizations to gather in their places of worship to give thanks and praise to the Almighty God, that his mercies may continuously rest upon Liberia as a nation and upon all Liberians.There has been no better time in the existence of Liberia that underscores the need for the divine intervention and the healing hands of the Almighty than this period when the Ebola Virus Disease (EDV), the worst ever health crisis to face the nation, is threatening the existence of the state. On this day, the residents will be thanking God through prayers for His healing hands upon the nation.The people of Liberia, President Sirleaf said,  have  always given thanks and praises to God for His mercy on the nation, especially for “His continuous protection and blessings in times of peace, disaster and other natural phenomena and for sustaining us politically, socially and economically over the years,” the President said.The Proclamation, which was signed by the Minister of Foreign Affairs, noted, “At this moment of our national existence, the Liberian people are overwhelmingly confronted by the deadly Ebola virus.  The virus has wreaked havoc in the country and confounds the collective efforts of the nation and the international community to contain the effects of the disease, currently claiming the precious lives of more than 1,800 of our compatriots.“It is befitting that a day has been set aside for the nation and its people to give thanks and adoration to the Lord for His dispensation of grace, mercy, and providence for the perseverance of our lives and to overcome the spreading of the pathogenic disease,” the Proclamation continued.It was in 1883 that the National Legislature, in session, enacted a statute declaring the first Thursday in November of each year as a National Thanksgiving Day. This came after the nation had gone through some rough times.Though the day is traditionally used to give thanks and praises to God for His goodness during the year, this year’s celebration will take a different dimension as all Liberians, as they have done in recent weeks, will be focused on prayer and intersession for the Ebola menace to be eradicated from Liberia.The nation’s health experts have stressed that there is no time for complacency and religious leaders continue to call on their followers to unceasing prays for the nation for “total deliverance”. This should, however, be the order of Thursday.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

50-year-old woman wanted for 2009 murder of fuel dealer

first_imgOn July 12, 2009, Good Hope, East Coast businessman, Ramzan Ali, 43, was found in the trunk of a rented white Toyota Carina AT 212 on the Railway Embankment in the vicinity of Coldingen.Wanted: Milaimi AlliPolice are viewing the killing as a crime of passion. Nine years later, the police have issued a wanted bulletin for 50-year-old Milaimi Alli for questioning in relation to the murder which they say occurred between July 11 and 12, 2009.Her last known addresses are said to be Lot 29 Good Hope, East Coast Demerara (ECD); Gordon Street, Kitty, Georgetown, and 107-15 110th Street, Richmond Hill, Queens New York.Just a few days ago, Zaheed Mitchell, a 38-year-old driver of Foulis, ECD, was charged with the murder of the fuel dealer.The indictment stated that Mitchell and others murdered Ali between July 11 and 12, 2009. Mitchell was remanded to prison until April 15, 2019. It was during investigations that Ali’s name surfaced, hence an arrest warrant was issued for her arrest.Back in 2009, the businessman’s body was found by relatives who had launched a search for him after several calls to his mobile went unanswered.At that time, investigators could not say if Ali was shot but they informed that his skull was smashed in.He was found with a paper bag sealed with duct tape over his head. Ali’s death came at a time when family members were preparing to hold a religious function in memory of his brother Akbar Ali, a scrap metal dealer from Enmore who was gunned down on Brickdam on July 24, 2008.Murdered: Ramzan AliOne of the dead man’s cousins, who assisted in the search, said he observed Ali’s locked car on the Railway Embankment.Upon checking, he initially did not see anyone inside. He made further checks and observed that blood was dripping from the trunk onto the roadway.The relative then broke the driver’s side window and unlocked the trunk where he made the shocking discovery.“His head was bagged and taped,” the dead man’s relative had stated. The police were contacted and they quickly cordoned off the scene and commenced their investigations.The detectives believed that Ali was killed somewhere else and his killers brought him in his car and left him in the desolate area.There was what appeared to be a skid mark on the parapet near where Ali’s body was discovered, leading investigators to believe that the killers fled the scene in another car.Several persons had recalled seeing the parked car at around 01:00h but they did not have the slightest clue that it contained a body in the trunk.last_img read more

first_img$5 million more will be given to additional areas identified by the task force, including issuing naloxone and naloxone training to police and RCMP for administering to the public in the event of overdose and for officer safety in case of accidental exposure. VICTORIA, B.C. – Christy Clark announced today that the BC Government is giving $10 million to the fight against the overdose crisis as well as the newly formed Task Force.“Too many families have lost someone they love to addiction or overdose,” Premier Clark said. “We’re fortunate to be home to some of Canada’s leading addiction and recovery experts doing incredible work. This funding will help them continue to identify and develop leading and innovative practices, and prevent more families from enduring the worst possible news.”$5 million will be going to the establishment of the new British Columbia Centre on Substance Use (BCCSU).The BCCSU will establish procedures for the province’s addiction treatment system and link together health authorities, academic institutions, care providers and service agencies.“B.C. is at the forefront in efforts to tackle the overdose crisis faced by jurisdictions across North America. We know we need to take action on many fronts, from public awareness and education, to treatment and harm reduction, to public safety and policing,” said Health Minister Terry Lake. “Putting in place the best evidence-based treatment to help people recover from substance-use issues is, of course, integral to addressing the problem, and the B.C. Centre on Substance Use will play a crucial role.”- Advertisement -One of the first tasks for the BCCSU is to come up with a provincial guideline for the treatment of opioid addiction this fall.Advertisementlast_img read more

Rodgers ‘disappointed’ after dominant Liverpool are held by Chelsea

first_imgLiverpool manager Brendan Rodgers was left disappointed following his side’s 1-1 draw with Chelsea in the first leg of their League Cup semi-final tie at Anfield.The Reds were the more dominant team throughout Tuesday night’s clash but fell behind against the run of play in the first-half through Eden Hazard’s penalty.Rodgers’ men maintained pressure on their opponents, who managed just two shots on target in the 90 minutes, and eventually equalised after the break courtesy of Raheem Sterling’s fine solo goal.They had a handful of chances to win the game in the final moments, too, but Sterling, Jordan Henderson and substitute Adam Lallana all had decent efforts well saved by Thibaut Courtois.A frustrated Rodgers felt his side would have been worthy winners, but also said the Redmen’s bright performance will give them confidence ahead of next week’s return trip to Stamford Bridge.The Northern Irishman said: “I’m delighted with the performance, disappointed with the result.“I thought we deserved to win the game, we showed wonderful character. We went behind to their only shot on target but some of our play, taking the game to Chelsea, was very impressive.“It was a wonderful performance and sets up the second leg perfectly. They’re at home and will have to open up a wee bit more.“My players were super tonight, they were tactically brilliant and I’ve got no complaints.“We deserved to win the game and only managed a draw, but our performance gives us great confidence for the second-leg.”last_img read more

first_imgWe got our trophy back! The Anglo Celt is back in Donegal hands for the third time in four years and with the Fr. Murray cup also crossing the border last night after the minor team’s victory it was a day of double delight for the green and gold. Despite being somewhat used to the celebrations that go with an Ulster title win, the management and players took particular pleasure out of yesterday’s win; it seemed to mean more, even judging by Jim’s reaction at the final whistle. There’s a fierce determination within the group to right the wrongs from last year and they’ve now banished the memory of the provincial showpiece 12 months ago.For a few of course this is their first Ulster medal – Ryan McHugh marked the occasion with a man of the match performance while Odhran MacNiallais kicked three wonderful points over the course of the game.In the early stages of the match, the blood and thunder of last year wasn’t quite evident; there was nervy, nasty atmosphere and a somewhat claustrophobic tension which mirrored the dead heat in the Clones air. The apprehensiveness affected the players too with three of the country’s leading dead ball specialists, Conor McManus, Michael Murphy and Rory Beggan, all missing attempts at the posts in the opening minutes; indeed McManus would register his only score in stoppage time at the end of the match – and that was a long ball intended to land in and around Paul Durcan’s square. Donegal coped better in the dour opening exchanges, notching the game’s first three points and Monaghan struggled to cope with Jim’s defensive setup. McGuinness stationed Leo McLoone in the full forward line alongside Colm McFadden and it is an example of the options that the coaching staff have developed over time. Leo’s fabulous fetch on the end line led to MacNiallais’ second point of the day and kept Donegal nudging ahead.Despite the perception that ‘The System’ is extremely rigid, the players have to be agile and be able to undertake different roles throughout the course of a game. Murphy is the best example of this of course; he spent most of yesterday’s game as an auxiliary centre back alongside Frank McGlynn and on numerous occasions he was even covering in at full-back when Neil McGee sauntered up field. Armagh were the pioneers of this role under Joe Kernan – Tony McEntee used to slot in alongside Kieran McGeeney as Murphy did yesterday.The purists baulk at such tactics, stunned that one of the game’s eminent attackers is asked to perform such a role yet I’m sure Michael didn’t mind one bit where he played once he was able to climb the steps of the Gerry Arthur stand to pick up the trophy for the third time.When the team was named during the week, it was assumed that there would be changes before throw-in and Karl Lacey was sure to be one of them. He had a fine afternoon, getting the game’s opening point and also displaying his now trademark, textbook dispossession on Dermot Malone in the second half. You often see defenders – not very good ones – frantically swinging both arms at an attacker hoping to dispossess them; Karl does this but always in a measured way, aimed at the ball and it’s a fantastic skill.Lacey’s half back counterpart, Anthony Thompson, had a somewhat unusual game – time and again his handling let him down and he, like quite a few of the players, looked nervous. Yet the Glenties man just always seems to make a big contribution and he certainly did that again. Neil Gallagher was another change to the fifteen named and the Glenswilly man had an outstanding game. Such are his injury problems that he rarely gets seventy minutes in a Donegal jersey these days but he lasted the pace yesterday and that in itself is a huge positive as we move into the All-Ireland series.There’s an intense, somewhat bitter rivalry building between these teams lately and that always simmered close to the surface yesterday. There were quite a few flashpoints in the game and it was a surprise that both teams managed to keep their full complement of players on the field. The McGee brothers both picked up cautions in the first half but did well to keep their discipline thereafter, crucial in such a tense, turgid battle.The battles were taking place in the stands too with quite a few slagging matches breaking out amongst the two sets of supporters. Stephen Gollogly didn’t help matters as he put in a high tackle on McHugh, this of course the same player who ended Mark McHugh’s Ulster final participation last year. Monaghan were intent on drawing Donegal into a physical battle and they hit hard and sometimes late. Yet the discipline shown by the men from the Hills was commendable – in the first few minutes Gollogly swung Murphy around by the neck but there was no reaction whatsoever from the Maestro, he just took his free and got on with it.Donegal had a two-point lead at the break and continued to look in control in the third quarter, stretching the difference out to four. Monaghan’s goal could have been a major turning point as it left just the minimum between them – the next score was going to be crucial. McGuinness’ men got it and added two more and that was the winning of the game.Patrick McBrearty was to the fore in this period and maybe the decision not to start him was a smart call from Jim in that it reminded the Kilcar youngster that his displays had to improve. Injury curtailed his involvement during the league but in almost every game he came off the bench to good effect and got his name on the score sheet, just like he did yesterday. It was the captain who had the final say, Murphy nailing a monster 70 yard free to sink Monaghan hearts. It was reminiscent of the free he scored against Ardara in last year’s county semi final to get his club to the final – big moments, big man.A handling error from Frank McGlynn led to the goal but that aside he was immense throughout. He was the source for many of his side’s attacks and swept up in front of the McGee brothers. Earlier in that move for the goal, McFadden handled poorly to give possession back to the Farney men; Colm’s poor form continued yesterday, having been brilliantly marshalled by Drew Wylie, and his lack of confidence is a worry as we head for Croke Park. He’s working as hard as ever but it just isn’t happening for him at present. That can happen sometimes and you feel that a goal or a big point from play could turn his season around. He still notched 0-4 from frees though and for that alone he’s a vital cog.Neither Colm nor Michael scored from play yet the team still registered 0-15; maybe Donegal aren’t as reliant on these two as everyone makes out. For a defensive side who supposedly neglect the attacking element of the game, it was a decent score to post and indeed there were some very poor wides and missed chances to go along with that.So all this means that its back to Jones Road in a few weeks’ time for a quarter final against either Armagh or Meath. The Orchard had our number for quite a few years so a rematch would be something to look forward to.Looking forward to the semi-final is what the rest of the country are doing though – the unbeatable juggernaut that is Dublin will be there and many believe Donegal are the only team that can stop them. A Dublin street trader even found his way to the market town yesterday, selling headbands for a euro, maybe on a spying mission for August. Certainly right now, the team is not as fluid or assured as it was this time two years ago. However Jim has broken a seventy minute football match into so many little parts and has a specific plan for each as regards positioning of players, personnel changes from the bench and game plans that you wouldn’t back against him in any contest.There probably wasn’t a need to go as defensive yesterday as Jim did but maybe this was with an eye on future opponents and honing that watertight system that will be undoubtedly pushed to its limit by the Dubs should the two sides meet.That’s for another day though; for now it’s a quarter final to think about and a chance to bask in the glory of another Ulster title.
