Pons eyes revenge against La Salle in FEU title bid

first_imgPons averaged 18.5 points in those two matches and she is determined to avenge those losses against a La Salle team that has appeared in the championship round for 10 straight seasons.“Those matches in the first and second rounds were really close and it’s just unfortunate that we lost both,” said Pons, who is playing on her first title series. “I’m really excited to take those losses back against La Salle.”Pons, could be playing in the last three games of her collegiate career, is aware of the disparity between the experience levels of the two teams but the outgoing Lady Tamaraw said they can counteract it through sheer unflappable will.FEU last won the title in Season 70 and last appeared in the finals in Season 71 where it lost to, as fate had it, La Salle.“Yes they’re well ahead in terms of experience because they’ve been fighting for the championship for so long but we’re always reminded that we should fight for every point,” said Pons.ADVERTISEMENT Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

‘1st, 2nd Divisions Spaces on Sale after July 17’

first_imgThe Liberia Football Association (LFA) has announced that clubs in the 1st and 2nd division teams that deliberately refuse to write the football house by Wednesday, July 17, 2014 about committing themselves to CAF’s Club Licensing System (CLS) will be dropped immediately.The LFA says the position of be clubs will be declared vacant and subsequently filled.Secretary General Alphonso Armah said yesterday that compulsory fill-in of spaces in the 1st and 2nd division is to uphold the revised statutes.He said key among the requirements are: youth team (ages 10-14 years), affidavit of ownership of clubs, stadium, practice pitch (at least up to three clubs could join), office space, proof of financial capacity, and a technical director (minimum high school graduate).Armah also noted that the LFA has agreed to use the Antoinette Tubman Stadium for all applied teams and stressed that 1st division to cover 50% of the key requirements, while 2nd division should do 30%.“These registration requirements serve as a prelude to the implementation of the LFA Club Licensing whose compliance for the participation of LFA 2014/2015 League,” Armah said.He added: “The decision is to improve the standard of football in the country in pursuant to FIFA and CAF directives.”Armah indicated that FIFA in its Circular No. 1128 of December 28, 2007 explained the Club Licensing Regulations as the “basic working document for the club licensing system, through which the different members of the football family can promote common principles in football.”He intoned that FIFA seeks to ensure that clubs participating in any competition fulfill minimum standard requirements and the regulations set forth by FIFA took effect from January 1, 2008.“For CAF, the 2012/13 season was slated as the take-off date but in a recent circular, the continental body granted a grace period and set a new date of November 30, 2014,” Armah said. “The circular mandated all its national affiliates including the LFA to confirm in writing by January 30, 2013 that the licensing regulation has been adopted by its congress which we did and subsequently adopted in our statute on January 18, 2014.”Meanwhile, some stakeholders who begged not to be identified reminded the LFA to take into consideration the country’s poor economy and be flexible in the implementation of the CLS.They noted that there should be a deferment and the LFA should meet CAF to set-up a role-map in achieving the Club Licensing System or else most clubs would pull out and hundreds of youths will lose their jobs.They said further that the LFA, like in Nigeria, should set up a body or committee which would be responsible to decide on whether a license is granted an applicant on the basis of the ‘final approved documents provided.’They also requested a committee, called the Appeals Body, which would be responsible to decide on appeals submitted in writing and make a final and binding decision on whether a license shall be granted.“It is for this purpose that governments exist to make rules and ensure that the rules are complied with. Every profession, business, social group and competition have their qualification thresholds and conditions for retaining membership,” they argued. “To participate in any sport, the organising body sets standards to be met by either nations, clubs or individuals and only those who are committed to abiding by the set regulations are admitted and retained. It is same for football.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Ngafuan Hails Outgoing Egyptian Ambassador Lotfi

first_imgForeign Minister Augustine Kpehe Ngafuan has praised outgoing Egyptian Ambassador to Liberia for his pivotal role played in cementing the cordial ties between Liberia and the Arab Republic of Egypt. Minister Ngafuan stated that Ambassador Sameh Lotfi has distinguished himself as a dynamic diplomat, who never ceases to identify new opportunities for strengthening the bilateral relations between Liberia and Egypt.A Foreign Ministry release quoted Minister Ngafuan as saying that the Egyptian envoy executed his duties with commitment, excellence and diligence, adding, “We are grateful for the true spirit of representation, which he has demonstrated on behalf of his great nation and people.”Minister Ngafuan spoke at the occasion marking the official celebration of the 63rd Anniversary of the July 23rd Revolution of the Arab Republic of Egypt and at a farewell dinner in honor of Ambassador Lofti, whose tour of duty has ended. He said Ambassador Lotfi’s tenure ends at a time when Liberia is just beginning to recover from the impact of the deadly Ebola virus disease (EVD), which claimed the lives of many Liberians and caused social and economic disruption.“We would have loved him to stay a little longer to help us with this recovery from a virus, which he and his country helped us defeat. But the reality of his profession as I have seen is that diplomats are always on the move at the call of duty.” He further said that at the height of the onslaught of the Ebola virus disease in Liberia, the outgoing Ambassador worked tooth and nail to mobilize assistance from the Egyptian Government, in solidarity with the people of Liberia to fight the disease. “Mr. Ambassador, during your tenure, Egypt provided assistance in the form of medical supplies and equipment and doctors at the John F. Kennedy (JFK) referral hospital to assist the Government of Liberia in its combat against Ebola and other challenges of the health sector,” the Minister indicated with deep appreciation. Minister Ngafuan further observed that the relations between Egypt and Liberia have been cordial and mutually respectful and beneficial with Egypt providing technical assistance to Liberia including short-term training program and long-term bilateral scholarship based on Technical Cooperation Agreement between the Egypt Fund for Technical Cooperation with Africa and the Government of Liberia which continues to greatly impact the human resource development of the country. “We are happy that you turned a milestone in the history of your great country and your place in history is well deserved. I want to take this time to congratulate you on this joyous and auspicious occasion. I am particularly impressed by the remarkable progress that your country has made since the transition from the events at the Tahrir Square to democratic elections, which finally saw the ascendancy of President Al-Sisi to power.”Minister Ngafuan stated that the July 23rd Revolution played a significant role in the political and economic development of Egypt. He also noted that the decision to institute a republican government launched Egypt into a new era of Nationalism, industrialization, unprecedented infrastructure development and Agrarian reform at which time Egypt has begun to show early signs of the pivotal role it would play in the non-aligned movement of which Liberia is also a founding member. For his part, Ambassador Lotfi paid a special tribute to President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf and officials of her government for the cooperation and support accorded him during his three years of diplomatic assignment in Liberia. He stated that those three years have produced a stable development and cordial bilateral relations between Liberia and Egypt. While acknowledging the solidity of the relations and the existing cooperation between Liberia and Egypt, the Egyptian envoy stated that during his tenure, Liberia- Egypt relations was marked by mutual bilateral cooperation with rewarding benefits. He said his tour of duty in Liberia witnessed the visit of high level Egyptian officials including the General Director of the Egyptian Social Fund for Development and the Special Envoy of President, Al Sisi, to Liberia and reciprocal visits of Liberian official to Egypt for training and working of joint committee to be discussed in the near future. While reflecting on the deadly EVD outbreak, which ravaged Liberia, the Egyptian diplomat stated that his country’s refusal to shut its doors was a stance of solidarity with their African counterparts so as to share the country’s struggle to defeat the Ebola epidemic. Ambassador Lotfi also said the celebration of the 63rd Anniversary of the July 1952 Revolution marked a significant milestone in his country’s history, as the occasion corresponds with the inauguration of new projects such as the Suez Canal, which is now ready for navigation and will formally be opened on August 6. He further asserted that the newly constructed two way route promises to nearly triple revenue from the Suez Canal to over US$3 billion per year by 2023. The Egyptian envoy said the new canal will minimize the waiting time for vessels to three hours at most, instead of 8-11 hours and will support the Suez Canal Area Development Project that will turn Egypt into an international logistics center.

first_img0Shares0000Stan and deliver: Wawrinka celebrates winning his semi-final against Kei Nishikori © ANP/AFP / Koen van WeelROTTERDAM, Netherlands, Feb 17 – Three-time Grand Slam title winner Stan Wawrinka reached his second Rotterdam Open final on Saturday by knocking out top seed Kei Nishikori 6-2, 4-6, 6-4.Switzerland’s 2015 champion needed almost two and a quarter hours to defeat the Japanese star who was playing at the Dutch event for the first time. Wawrinka will face off for his first title since Geneva in May 2017 when he plays against good friend Gael Monfils in Sunday’s final.The French showman returned to the final as he overhauled Daniil Medvedev 4-6, 6-3, 6-4.Nishikori suffered only his second loss of the season against 11 victories, which included the Brisbane title and a quarter-final run at the Australian Open.Wawrinka, 33, won the first set from a 4-0 lead, trailed 0-4 as Nishikori levelled in the second before he broke in the final game of the third.The Swiss world number 68 sent a stinging service return winner down the line to clinch victory, which comes almost a year and a half after he underwent two knee surgeries in the summer of 2017.“It’s a big relief to reach my first final since my surgery,” Wawrinka said.“It’s really important to see that I can play a full week of matches. I’m feeling good physically, I’m glad to be in a final again and glad to do it here.”He added: “When you come back from surgery, you need to be patient with yourself. The toughest thing is to come back at the right level, where you want to be.”The Swiss won his last meeting with Monfils at Roland Garros two years ago.Wawrinka ended with eight aces and 35 winners while breaking Nishikori five times.“Stan was playing well in the first set, but not like amazing,” said Nishikori.“I made too many mistakes, too many unforced errors, I could have played better. I was missing too much.”Monfils said he will be heading into Sunday’s final needing painkillers to ease a left wrist injury.The 32-year-old had also reached the title match in his last Rotterdam appearance in 2016, when he lost to Martin Klizan.Monfils revealed that he has been suffering all week with a left wrist injury.“I fell heavily on day one and I’ve felt it every day. I’ve been on painkillers. It’s not so good but I’m working with my physio,” said the world number 33.“I try not to think of it. I hope the momentum will get me through.”Victory on Saturday was quick revenge for Monfils, who lost to Medvedev a week ago in the Sofia semi-finals, an event which the Russian won.Medvedev’s defeat was only his third loss of the season, leaving his record at 14-3.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Donegal businesses asked to help ‘alpaca’ punch to cancer

first_imgFormer RTE newsreader Aengus MacGrianna is urging businesses in Donegal to support cancer patients and their families by getting behind the Irish Cancer Society’s Daffodil Day on Friday, March 22nd.Aengus, who lives on an alpaca farm run by his husband Terry, is calling on businesses in Donegal to help the Irish Cancer Society meet ever increasing demands for services such as counselling.Aengus was just 11 when he lost his mother to cancer, and her death was devastating for his whole family. He said: “Losing mum to cancer was heart-breaking, especially as she was so young and we were still growing up. It was an extremely tough time.“The Irish Cancer Society’s free counselling sessions for families affected by cancer didn’t exist when I was younger.“This support, which is only available because of Daffodil Day donations, could be a lifeline for someone struggling with the impact of a diagnosis. Get your workplace involved on March 22 to ensure families like ours can receive free services and get the help they need to cope with a cancer diagnosis. ”Last year, with the help of Daffodil Day donations, 318 counselling sessions were provided to people from Donegal to help them deal with a cancer diagnosis. This represents an 18% increase in the number of sessions provided in 2016. With cancer incidence on the rise, the Society expects even more people to seek counselling in 2019, a demand that can only be met if enough funds are raised on Daffodil Day.Companies can help rally around their customers and staff affected by cancer by hosting a fundraising coffee morning in work or by volunteering to sell daffodils on the day. Boots Ireland is the sponsor of Daffodil Day this year and all 87 stores are backing the campaign by selling daffodils and hosting instore fundraisers.Chief Executive of the Irish Cancer Society Averil Power said, “Because more people are getting cancer each year, not everyone is getting the care and support they need. We must do more to ensure we can support every cancer patient. With the help of local companies and supporters on Daffodil Day, cancer patients and their families can receive free counselling sessions across the country through our affiliated cancer support centres. To help deliver more care and support locally, and meet increasing demands, we are asking more companies to get involved in Daffodil Day this year.”Bernadette Lavery, MD, Boots Ireland said: “Boots staff come face to face with people facing cancer every day. We do our best to offer support through local services such as the Boot Irish Cancer Society Information Pharmacists, who are trained specifically to provide information and advice on cancer, and our Beauty Cancer Advisors, who help women manage the visible side effects of cancer. Staff in our 87 stores are looking forward to showing further support for people affected by cancer on March 22, with cyclathons, bake sales and other fundraising activities taking place in our stores around the country.”To get involved register at www.cancer.ie/daffodildayatwork Donegal businesses asked to help ‘alpaca’ punch to cancer was last modified: March 8th, 2019 by Rachel McLaughlinShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:daffodil dayIrish Cancer Societylast_img read more

Ray loved every part of it. It put everything into context because Ray is already a wee hero considering what he’s going through.”Ray has neurofibromatosis (NF1), which has the potential to cause tumours to grow on his nervous system. The brave boy has finished two years of chemotherapy which has successfully stablised a tumour behind his left eye. He is blind in his left eye as a result of the optic glioma.Patricia added: “This day was so special for Ray because he missed a lot of school last year. To be part of an assembly is amazing.

Ray is so lovable and so full of craic. We were delighted to see how excited he was on the day.”Ray was overwhelmed with excitement and loved showing his friends his shiny new uniform.He is now part of an elite unit of bright young gardaí in Donegal. He joins the force alongside Raphoe schoolboy Garda Jack Beattie (aged 7) who was drafted into the Letterkenny station earlier this year.

It will go a long way and we are so grateful,” Patricia said.Ray’s parents Patricia and Ronan Campbell added: “We’d like to say a huge thanks to Garda Laura Martin, who organised everything from start to finish. We can’t thank her enough. Thank you to Garda Halferty and Garda Lambe, thanks to the school and Principal McGowan for letting us disrupt their day with all the excitement at the assembly. “Thank you to the special medical teams who cared for Ray when he was going through his treatment in Crumlin and Letterkenny. Their kindness makes life better for us. “And thank you to everyone in our local community who have given us amazing support, who have fundraised for us and have always been there when we need them.”Garda Declan Lambe, Garda Gary Helferty and Garda Laura Martin present a cheque to Little Blue Hero Ray Campbell and his mother Patricia Campbell.

DONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUE REPORTS: LIFFORD HOOPS CONTINUE TITLE PUSH

first_imgDONEGAL JUNIOR LEAGUEBrian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionMilford United 1 Kilmacrennan Celtic 2 Kilmacrennan won this local derby thanks to two late goals from Eddie Doherty in a game switched to Rathmullan. Milford took the lead after 5 minutes when Paul Shields headed home from a Cathal Mc Gettigan corner. Milford playing with the wind had several chances to extend their lead but failed to find the net. Kilmacrennan pushed forward in the second half and their best chance fell to Eddie Doherty only for Caolan Mc Gettigan to save well. Milford broke with great chances falling to Brendan Murray, Cathal Mc Gettigan and TJ Evesson who failed to convert. Referee Joe McHughLifford Celtic 3 Lagan Harps 0Lifford Celtic maintained their title push with victory over Lagan Harps at Greenbrae on Sunday afternoon. Despite winning well in the end up it took the Lifford lads until after the break before they settled into their familiar style of play. Lagan Harps came to Greenbrae bearing little in the line of gifts for the title chasers. In the first half especially they battled for every ball and had they reached the interval level it would have being no injustice. Damien Patton spoiled those thoughts however for the Lagan men. After thirty minutes he stormed in undetected at the back post to connect with a Lifford free kick that had been floated from the left wing. Needing to find a second goal Celtic were having to be cautious in their approach. Fifteen minutes into the second half JP Malley found the net to settle the nerves. Eight minutes later he did it again, this time after Colin Carlin had made a right wing run to the byline before cutting the ball back across the Lagan box where Malley was lurking. The striker made no mistake from close range. Lagan competed till the final whistle but Lee White wasn’t troubled in the Lifford net. Kilmacrennan Celtic will be the visitors to Greenbrae next Sunday as Lifford play their game in hand before the league reaches it’s climax the following week. Referee: Patrick Martin.Glenea United 4 Castlefin Celtic 0 Glenea completed their home league programme with this hard earned victory over a youthful Castlefin side. The border side played with the aid of the strong wind in the 1st half and started well but were unable to create any clear cut chances. As the half progressed the home side came more into the game and started to look dangerous but could just not find the correct final ball. With Glenea looking for the points to continue their league challenge they started the 2nd half well. Michael Barry opened the scoring on 46 minutes when he was on hand to knock the ball home from close range after good work by Sean McBride down the right. Glenea extended their lead on 48 minutes when Ciaran Gallagher’s long clearance was controlled by Michael Barry who saw his shot well saved but Lee O’Brien was on hand to slot home the rebound. Glenea got the 3rd goal on 56 minutes when Michael Barry reacted quickest to a poor clearance and he fired home. Glenea completed the scoring on 75 minutes when Sean Coll’s header from a corner was forced home by Paul Sweeney. Best for Glenea were Padraig McGee and Ryan McFadden, while it was a good effort from a young Castlefin team. Referee: Mick Lagan.Glencar Inn Division TwoDeele Harps 3 Tullyvinney Rovers 1It was a case of going through the motions for Deele Harps when Tullyvinney Rovers were the visitors to the Athletic Grounds on Saturday. With the League title already secured they were playing to remain the only unbeaten side in the Donegal League.
