Toti City continue winning run

first_imgSOCCER By DENNYS IORERE diorere@spp.com.pg REIGNING champions Toti City FC maintained its supremacy in the National Soccer League with a 7-2 thumping of FC Momase in one of the double headers held at the PNG Football Stadium in Port Moresby on Saturday. Toti City proved a class above with captain and strike weapon Raymond Gunemba and David Matthew sharing five goals between them in the opening half. The strike duo, plus Obert (Plesman) Bika continue to probe and pulverize the opponents’ defensive line to score. The visitors opened first points after an awkward challenge in the penalty area that allowed Gunemba to convert from a spot kick to take an early 1-0 lead. Toti City FC made it 2-0 after a clinical header from Matthew. Despite some resistance from Momase, it was Toti City who were in control as Emmanuel Simon until injured and Jacob Sabua dictating play from centre for Gunemba, Bika and Matthew. Minutes later, Momase defender Ivan Sevese failed to clear the ball with some urgency allowing Matthew to pick up his double after stealing and scoring to make it 3-0. On occasions, Momase came close as strikers Basil Jofari, Theo Sergius and Moses Asirib kept on contemplating on finding the visitors’ target but their chances were thwarted by veteran defender Valentine Nelson and goalkeeper Ronald Warisan. At times, they took wrong options that denied them any opportunity of scoring. However, it was Toti City, with the Morobe provincial flag flying proudly and vocal fans cheering them on Gunemba, using his speed and agility, maneuvered through a couple of his opponents to score a double to take their lead to 5-0 heading into the break. Minutes into the second half, Momase pulled one back from a penalty. Sevese curved a shot into the goalmouth that saw Asirib poke into the target. However, by then the damage had already been done. Toti City continued to lift the tempo in the second half but seemed to be running out of energy and stamina, an area they should concentrate on and try to rectify as they prepare for the OFC Champions League quarter finals against Team Wellington in New Zealand next month. Despite bringing on another strike weapon Nigel Dabinyaba who kept on making rings around the Momase defensive line but he failed to find the target. However, this time he took his chances only for the shot to bounce of the cross bar but Gunemba was there again to easily slot in his fourth goal and minutes later, he became the provider setting up one for Bika to make it 7-1. And with minutes ticking away, Ricky Togubai scored for Momase to settle for a 7-2 defeat. In the early match, Southern Strikers came back from a 3-0 deficit in the opening half to narrow the gap to 3-2. In Lae, FC Morobe Wawen belted Buang FC 10-1. After the weekend’s games, the unofficial points ladder has Toti City FC on 18 points followed by Madang FC 13, FC Morobe Wawen 9, Besta PNG United FC 6, FC Momase 5, Southern Strikers 4 and Buang FC 0.last_img read more

Why are the Capitals missing Samson? The Russian goalkeeper was…

first_imgDuring the basic part of this year’s NHL, he had better statistics than club number one Braden Holtby, but Ilya Samsonov is missing from the playoffs. Capitals goalkeeper is on the sidelines, the club did not state the official cause. According to journalist Alexei Shevchenko from the daily Sport-Express, the Russian goalkeeper was injured while riding an ATV. Samson’s absence from the Washington team has long been speculated. No one knew exactly what had happened. After the forced break, the Russian goalkeeper was missing from all team trainings.“The only thing I can confirm to you is that he is not positive for the coronavirus, but that there is an injury behind his absence. I hope to tell you more in the future, “said head coach Todd Reirden.The team hierarchy has thus changed. The clear man number one is the experienced Braden Holtby, Pheonix Copley and Vítek Vaněček are ready as substitutes, who is currently waiting for the premiere in the NHL. The vice-champion of the world until the age of 18 was on the farm last year with his colleague Samsonov, the management of the first team then preferred the offspring of Russian Magnitogorsk.After the “coronavirus” break, however, everything is different. Samsonov was injured during his stay at home in Russia, the Shevchenko mentioned more details on his Youtube channel. “According to my information, Ilja was injured while riding an ATV. He fell, damaging his back and neck quite seriously, “he said, adding that the accident had taken place in Magnitogorsk.The Capitals management remains silent, but general manager Brian MacLellan expressed disappointment and called the injury “unsportsmanlike”. Riding an ATV is risky for hockey players, and NHL players’ contracts prohibit similar events. Maybe that’s why Samsonov did not immediately report the real cause of his health problems and hoped that he would recover in time and be available for the playoffs.But the plan did not work out, which theoretically can affect his further work in the organization. The club must cope in the elimination fights without him. Capitals hockey players will enter the playoffs with today’s group duel for the first round against Tampa Bay.

NFL to spend $250 million on social justice initiatives

first_imgLast Updated: 12th June, 2020 04:59 IST NFL To Spend $250 Million On Social Justice Initiatives The NFL is committing $250 million over 10 years to social justice initiatives, targeting what it calls “systemic racism” and supporting “the battle against the ongoing and historic injustices faced by African Americans.” Associated Press Television News First Published: 12th June, 2020 04:59 IST Written By COMMENT WATCH US LIVEcenter_img FOLLOW US The NFL is committing $250 million over 10 years to social justice initiatives, targeting what it calls “systemic racism” and supporting “the battle against the ongoing and historic injustices faced by African Americans.”The league, which has raised $44 million in donations through its Inspire Change program, announced the additional $206 million commitment Thursday. It plans to “work collaboratively with NFL players to support programs to address criminal justice reform, police reforms, and economic and educational advancement.”Less than a week ago, Commissioner Roger Goodell denounced racism in a video prompted greatly by a players’ video seeking NFL action.“I am listening, and I will be reaching out to players who have raised their voices and others on how we can improve and go forward for a better and more united NFL family,” he said.The players want to see definitive action, of course. There has been increasing distrust of the NFL since San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick and others began kneeling during the national anthem in 2016 to protest social injustice and police brutality. The message was misconstrued by the league and many team owners as anti-military and anti-flag. Goodell admitted as much in his video, though never mentioning Kaepernick, who has not found an NFL job the last three seasons.That distrust was expressed Wednesday by 49ers star cornerback Richard Sherman.“They’ve tried their best to throw money behind it for a long time,” he said. “It takes more than that. It takes you literally calling out bigotry and being motivated. It’s not just pleading. It’s being consistent year in and year out that you’re combating this issue and that this is a problem that needs to change. And it’s not just this year, not just 2016, not just 2017, but ‘Black Lives Matter.’ They have to matter forever.”The Players Coalition was established in 2017 to work for social justice, growing out of the Kaepernick-inspired protests and pledging to improve police/community relations, champion criminal justice reform, and promote education and economic advancement in communities across the nation.Earlier this week, the coalition collected more than 1,400 signatures from active and retired athletes, coaches and executives from a variety of sports and presented them to Congress this week in support of a bill seeking to eliminate qualified immunity regarding police brutality. That bill was introduced in response to the deaths of George Floyd and Breonna Taylor while in police custody.Saints safety Malcolm Jenkins, a co-founder of the Players Coalition, spoke on CBS about the movement to defund police:“It doesn’t mean we eradicate police completely. We’ve got 10 million kids going to schools with police officers in them and no social workers. Three million that have got police in their schools and no nurses. Six million with police in their schools but no psychologists. Yet we want to invest in putting more police on the streets and over-policing that we know does not make our communities safer.“We’d rather see that money go to programs that help with entrepreneurship, that help with our schooling, that help with black people who have been disproportionately affected by COVID.”Some of the programs the NFL is targeting will deal with those issues, according to Anna Isaacson, the league’s senior vice president of social responsibility.“What this really is is a deeper and expanded commitment form the league and owners to say we are in this for the long haul,” she said. “It’s probably a deeper clarification on what we are meaning and focusing on. It has always been there, that focus, but obviously with current events and even before the last two weeks, conversations with the players have been on really focusing on this. Recent events solidified this has to be a key focus for us.”Isaacson mentions Big Brothers and Big Sisters, and Metro Peace Academy in Chicago as two organizations the league works with.“With Big Brothers and Big Sisters, we fund a program to bridge the gap in communication and understanding,” he said. “The program is pairing law enforcement officers with specific under-served youth, and those one-on-one relationships are to both the `Big’ and the `Little,′ as they call them, meant as a way to bridge whatever gaps exist. Building one-on-one relationships where trust is built and knowledge gained is essential.“In Chicago, we funded a program that does training with the community in how to work with their local police department and training with police on how to work with the community. That program is trying to reach the most at-risk youth and adults.“There are many such programs across the country that have started this work and are doing incredible work on the ground. We are looking for programs with a proven model and good track record and that has boots on the ground and treating people directly. National in scale, but that is truly the grass roots.“We’re making sure a lot of our grants are reaching down into the communities they serve, people to people and person to person.” SUBSCRIBE TO US LIVE TVlast_img
