Middletown All-Stars earn a hard-fought district title

first_imgAfter losing their first game in the double elimination portion of the District 19 9- and 10-year-old Tournament, the Middletown All-Stars reeled off six consecutive victories in seven days, defeating Colts Neck Little League twice to, capture the District 19 9- and 10-year-old Little League Championship. On July 17, Middletown lost to Marlboro North, 9-0, in the first round of the tournament. However, the kids and coaching staff didn’t hang their heads. Instead, they pulled it together and defeated their next three opponents (Eatontown, Sandy Hook and Freehold American), to allow them to reach the semifinal round and another shot at Marlboro North. Middletown’s squad came ready to play and avenged their earlier loss by beating Marlboro North, 10-0, in four innings, behind a solid pitching performance from Gavin Koegel (3-0 in tournament play). The hard-throwing righty shut down Marlboro North, allowing only three hits while striking out eight batters. The offense was powered by Jake Fay’s three hits and five RBIs, Jason Huelbig’s two hits (including a two-run double), and Andrew Suarez, who collected two hits and two RBIs. With the win, Middletown moved on to the championship round against undefeated Colts Neck. The task would not be easy, as they would need two wins against Colts Neck, in as many consecutive days, to capture the crown. Once again, the Middletown team pulled together. In the first game, the score was knotted at 3-3, with Middletown coming to bat in the bottom of the sixth inning. With a runner on second base (Sean Wollman), Andrew Suarez stepped to the plate and crushed a 2-2 pitch to the left center-field wall that knocked in Wollman for the game-winning run, giving Middletown a 4-3 victory. Wollman (4-0 in tournament play) was tremendous on the mound, allowing only three hits while striking out seven batters. In the final contest, Middletown opened the scoring with two runs in their first at bat. Jason Huelbig (three hits) singled to lead the game off, and scored on Sean Wollman’s RBI single. Wollman scored the second run of the inning when Jake Fay lined a base hit to center. The score remained 2-0 until the fifth, when Colts Neck battled back and tallied two runs of their own to tie the game at 2-2. In the top of the sixth, Huelbig singled to center, and Joe Kissenger followed with a sacrifice bunt, moving Huelbig to second. On the next pitch, Huelbig went to third on a passed ball. Wollman then hit a 2-2 pitch for a single to right that brought home Huelbig for the winning run and gave Middletown the District 19 Championship. Once again, Gavin Koegel was the king of the hill as he picked up the victory, his third of the tournament. Faye (two hits), Wollman (two hits), Adam Gocinski, Sean McKee and D.J. Begley provided the offense for Middletown. The coaching staff, which is comprised of manager Steve Wollman, and coaches Jay Huelbig, Jim Fay, Pete Koegel and Mike Gocinski, would like to thank and congratulate the All-Stars on a tremendous tournament. The players are Rob Barnack, Will Barnack, D.J. Begley, Jason Huelbig, Joe Kissenger, Sean Wollman, Andrew Suarez, Sean McKee, Gavin Koegel, Adam Gocinski and Jake Fay.last_img read more

Harambee dimmed by Taifa in battle of Stars

first_img0Shares0000MWANZA, Tanzania, November 14- Harambee Stars return home on Thursday with defeat echoing through their ears after neighbours and rivals Tanzania upset them 1-0 in a FIFA international friendly in the lake side town of Mwanza.With claims that the hosts flouted the world governing body rules by appointing a home referee from the match, Henri Michel’s side that went to the fixture as the favourites had no one to blame apart from their inability to turn mammoth possession to goals. Azam FC defender, Aggrey Morris towered over the Kenyan defence to net the winner with only seven minutes on the clock at the CCM Kirumba Stadium to hand Frenchman Michel his second defeat on the trot.On the opposite dugout, Dane Kim Poulsen enjoyed his first victory in charge of the hosts as his side braved a second half onslaught to hold on to their early lead in the end.Of concern to Michel who lost to South Africa 2-1 is the match will count towards FIFA World ranking and defeat narrowed the chances of Kenya moving up from their current lowly position of 130. “They have been in camp for just a few days, but they played as a team. I am very happy with the way they played today,” the Dane told Citizen News after the match at the same stadium the Kenyans won 2-1 in 2009 the last time they clashed prior to Wednesday.The host attacked from the onset stretching Michel’s side and they were rewarded when their star midfielder Mrisho Ngassa whipped in a cross off the right that was met to devastating effect by Morris.That stung the visitors to action led by their skipper and AJ Auxerre striker Denis Oliech but Tanzania’s rearguard of Shomari Kapombe, Amir Maftah and Kelvin Yondani held fort.TP Mazembe striking duo Mbwana Samatta and Thomas Ulimwengu on the other hand were pressing Michel’s side as the hosts enjoyed the better of the first half.The Frenchman who has taken Morocco, Tunisia and Ivory Coast to the World Cup introduced Ayub Timbe, Christopher Wekesa and Teddy Akumu in the second period for Patrick Oboya, James Situma and Jerry Santos as he sought to charge for the equaliser.Stars lifted off their slumber and dominated the second period but wasteful finishing left Michel a disappointed man and Kenya staring at the abyss.Celtic FC star Victor Wanyama and first choice keeper, Arnold Origi did not make the Mwanza trip but the chronic problem of finishing yet again cost them despite being the more fancied side.Michel has the task of lifting his side for the Africa Home Nations Championships (CHAN) and the regional CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup.Michel is not keen on the latter competition that starts next weekend with his focus gazed on the CHAN qualifier against Burundi and after losing to a team ranked lower than his side, time is running out for the much heralded tactician.SQUADSTaifa Stars: Juma Kaseja, Shomari Kapombe, Amir Maftah, Kelvin Yondani, Aggrey Morris,Frank Domayo, Abubakari Salum, Mwinyi Kazimoto, Thomas Ulimwengu, Mbwana Samatta and Mrisho Ngassa.Harambee Stars: Frederick Onyango, Brian Mandela, Eugene Asike, James Situma, Edwin Wafula, Jerry Santos, Jerry Opiyo, Patrick Oboya, Patrick Osaika, Denis Oliech and Wesley Kemboi0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Algeria, Senegal seek quarter-final berths

first_img0Shares0000MANGOMO, Equatorial Guinea, January 22 – Billed as the toughest group at this year’s Africa Cup of Nations, Group C could be done and dusted with a game to spare on Friday. Algeria, widely tipped as favourites coming into the competition, and dark horses Senegal won their opening games and so could qualify for the last eight if both record wins against Ghana and South Africa respectively.Meanwhile, the Black Stars and Bafana Bafana, who threw away leads in their opening games, can ill afford a second straight defeat if they are to keep their dreams of the continental title alive.The first game of a double-header in the eastern Equatoguinean town of Mongomo pits Algeria against Avram Grant’s Ghana, who have been waiting to see if talisman Asamoah Gyan will be able to return after he missed the 2-1 defeat to Senegal on Monday due to a mild bout of malaria.Ghana led against Senegal courtesy of an Andre Ayew penalty but were pegged back in the second half before losing to a stoppage-time goal by Moussa Sow.However, Israeli coach Grant, who was only recently appointed, remained upbeat as to his side’s prospects.“As you saw the players showed good mentality and we hope it will be the same next game. But we knew that if we lost nothing would be decided,” insisted the former Chelsea manager.Some Ghanaian fans might take it as an omen that the last time they beat Algeria at the Cup of Nations, in 1982 in Libya, is also the last time they won the trophy.Algeria, meanwhile, come into the game after a dramatic win in their opening game.Christian Gourcuff’s side trailed 1-0 against South Africa and only a missed penalty by Tokelo Rantie prevented them from falling further behind before they stormed back to win 3-1 with three goals in the final quarter.“Algeria had not won their opening game at the competition since 1990, so that augurs well for what is to come,” Yacine Brahimi, one of the potential stars of these finals, told Algerian media.“(The next match) will be like a final. It will be a super match. Ghana will undoubtedly react, while we need to build on our good start to close in on qualifying for the next phase.”Senegal face South Africa in the second game of the day as the Bafana Bafana look to bounce back from their collapse in their opening match.“We have a mountain to climb but we are still confident that we will do well in our next match,” coach ‘Shakes’ Mashaba told South African media.“We still have two games to go. We need to motivate the boys and get them back on their feet because understandably they are dejected.”Eric Mathoho and Reneilwe Letsholonyane, who missed the first game through suspension, return to contention for South Africa.However, youngster Rivaldo Coetzee will miss the game with the knee problem that forced him off against Algeria, although he is hoping to return for the final match against Ghana.Sow is hoping that his goalscoring heroics off the bench against Ghana will be enough for him to be included in Senegal coach Alain Giresse’s starting line-up.If only one of Senegal or Algeria win, they would still qualify if the day’s other match ends in a draw.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Gor halt Ulinzi’s march, Tusker dim All Stars

first_img0Shares0000NAIROBI, May 2- The Gor Mahia steamroller in the Kenyan Premier League (KPL) forced Ulinzi Stars to surrender in a 2-0 victory at their Nairobi City Stadium citadel on Saturday to sustaining their unbeaten start to the season.Elsewhere, former champions Tusker propelled themselves to second behind champions K’Ogalo on the log after dismissing the hapless Nakuru All Stars 3-1 as Western Stima edged out visiting Bandari 1-0 in Kisumu to round the day’s top flight action. Ulinzi, the 2010 titleholders were the latest side to try ending Gor’s unbeaten start to the season when they checked into the partisan and parked City in the highlight fixture but despite putting up a fight, they were disarmed 2-0 by the unshakable champions.Rwandese international Meddie Kagere and in-form Michael Olunga once again found the net as Gor moved to 23 points from nine outings on top of the standings.Scottish head coach, Frank Nutall named an unchanged side to the one that taxed Ushuru FC 3-1 last weekend as Benjamin Sande came on for seasoned Stephen Ocholla in Robert Matano’s only tweak on the military men’s side.– Oluoch scare-The vociferous home fans had hearts in their mouths when their keeper, Boniface Oluoch contrived to give Ulinzi the lead when Oscar Wamalwa stole the ball from him only for the custodian to redeem himself by saving the resultant finish with his feet mid first half.They were up on their feet shortly before half time when Olunga forced James Saruni in the soldier’s goal to spill the ball from a poor Anthony Muriithi back pass and Kagere gleefully accepted the gift to fire his side in front with his sixth goal of the nascent campaignwhen he swept the ball to a yawning net.Ulinzi returned from the break determined to seek the leveller and pinned Gor back but were made to pay in the 76th minute when Olunga sealed maximum points when he converted a Nizigiyimana low cross to spark rousing celebrations on the stands for his fifth of the season.At Nakuru’s Afraha Stadium, home team All Stars were once again dimmed by the potent brew concocted by Francis Kimanzi’s side who are shifting the gears after a lacklustre start to the campaign.Captain Jesse Were notched a brace with Clifford Alwanga scoring the other as the Brewers moved to 18 points from ten matches.Tusker took the lead when Abud Omar robbed Lawrence Juma and set up his skipper to unload a left-footer that went in off the post on 34 minutes before Alwanga made it 2-0 four minutes later when he beat the exposed Wycliffe Bukaya in the All Stars goal before stroking it to an unguarded net.The hosts gave themselves hope of salvaging the match ten minutes after half time when Boniface Akenga pulled one back but Were was on target again when he converted a penalty for hand ball in the box.Fredrick Shimonyo was the hero for Stima when he successfully fired in a 66th minute spot-kick to give Western Stima maximum points against the dockers in Kisumu.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

County’s annual legal bills rise 17%

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas City“It’s a troubling trend in large part because the supervisors have taken strong steps to decrease legal costs. The fundamental reason we insisted that the county counsel hire a litigation cost manager was to get a handle on our legal fees. “County counsel said they heard our message loud and clear, but these numbers indicate the opposite.” The findings come shortly after the supervisors approved a $450,000 wrongful-termination settlement for the county’s former litigation cost manager. Agoura Hills attorney Robert Nagle, who helped cut the county’s litigation costs by nearly 50 percent, from a high of $109 million in 2002-03 to $75 million in 2004-05, alleged in a letter to the supervisors last year that County Counsel Ray Fortner’s office hid information about rising costs. “(We) are very concerned that there is a backsliding into a lack of oversight in the monitoring of legal costs,” said Jon Coupal, president of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. Los Angeles County’s total legal costs jumped 17 percent from $86 million in 2005-06 to $101 million last fiscal year, just shy of a record high reached several years ago, officials said Friday. The $51 million in settlements and judgments was 20 percent higher than the average paid in the past five years and 32 percent higher than the previous year. The disclosure is expected to be presented to the Board of Supervisors this month, but some already expressed concern. “Supervisor Gloria Molina is very concerned that these costs went up for another year in a row,” said Roxane Marquez, Molina’s spokeswoman. “There needs to be an independent investigation as to why this guy was terminated. The decreased costs during his tenure suggest he was doing precisely what he was hired to do.” Litigation Cost Manager Steven H. Estabrook, who replaced Nagle, said the County Counsel’s Office is working to bring the costs down. “They are making sure the fees we are paying are appropriate to outside counsel,” Estabrook said. “Efforts are also being undertaken to make sure the cases are being properly managed, the proper amounts are spent on settlements and the right cases are going to trial.” In the report, Estabrook said the supervisors approved 238 lawsuit settlements last fiscal year totaling $36 million. Ten of the cases involved amounts of more than $1 million and contributed to more than half of the total value of all settlements. Settlements included $2.8 million for former jail inmate Jose Beas, who was severely beaten by other inmates, and $1 million for the family of Chadwick Shane Cochran, a mentally ill inmate who was beaten to death after he was left unsupervised. The supervisors also approved $1.8 million in a case involving a sexual assault by a sheriff’s deputy and a $1.8 million medical-malpractice suit in which a baby died. The total amount paid in settlements for the year includes $11.7 million for settlements made in prior years, including $2.5 million paid to attorneys overseeing a consent decree. The number of cases the county took to trial dropped from 38 to 24 last fiscal year, 15 of which the county prevailed in. The amount of money spent on legal fees and outside law firms totaled $50 million last fiscal year, 6 percent more than the prior year. Estabrook said the County Counsel’s Office fees and costs have increased as in-house services have replaced some of those previously provided by outside law firms. “The increase in in-house fees is also attributable to upward adjustments of in-house billing rates brought about by annual increases in salaries and employee benefits,” Estabrook wrote. troy.anderson@dailynews.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Christmas 2017: Every Premier League club’s festive jumper revealed and ranked

first_imgIt’s the most wonderful time of the year!Nope, it’s not Christmas (not yet, anyway)… it’s talkSPORT’s Premier League Christmas Jumper awards!So, who is festive and who is not? Click the right arrow, above, to see all 20 top flight teams ranked by their 2017 Christmas jumpers, from worst to best… 9. Brighton and Hove Albion – The blue on Brighton’s jumper is slightly more Christmassy than Burnley’s, so they sit one place ahead. 20. Stoke City – click the right arrow to see the rest of the Christmas jumpers ranked from worst to best – Stoke (the spoilsports) have not released a Christmas jumper this year. The above picture seemed most suitable for such a dour bunch. 19. Newcastle United – Vulgarity of the highest order. 20 7. Manchester City – Penguins are awesome. This penguin might be the most adorable penguin ever. That makes this penguin even more awesome. 20 20 20 17. Watford – Again, it looks like a real lack of effort has gone into this. Christmas jumpers are meant to horrible but exuberant… this is just horrible. 15. Crystal Palace – I’m loving the design, but I suspect there will be some real problems when the penguin actually attempts to kick the football with those skis on. Clearly a lack of thought went into this. 20 20 20 8. Liverpool – Liverpool top the rankings of the teams using the same template, as the red and white mix is perfect for the season to be jolly. 20 14. Manchester United – United have gone traditional with the inclusion of Santa, but they come lower than other teams because of the black background not being overly festive. Plus, just what is that chimney resting on? 10. Burnley – The first of three jumpers all using the same template, Burnley come last because their adherence to club colours means the jumper is not very festive. 3. Huddersfield Town – Yes, I know Terriers are not exactly Christmassy, but have you seen his face? Adorable. 20 11. Bournemouth – ‘Cherry’ Christmas? I mean, come on… ‘Cherry’ Christmas. Aside from that monstrosity, this is actually quite a snazzy jumper. 13. Arsenal – It’s red, it has Santa giving the thumbs up, and it has a three dimensional aspect. It’s got all the things to make it a great Christmas jumper, but is just missing that… pazazz. 20 20 20 20 20 20 20 5. Chelsea – Now this is snazzy. While the lion proves this is a Chelsea jumper, it has so few allusions to football it actually comes across as surprisingly classy. 12. West Ham United – Big marks for the winking reindeer. Low marks for Santa heading into the chimney head-first. Who would do that? 20 2. Tottenham Hotspur – Hehe… just look at that reindeer. How can you not love him? 20 16. Everton – The first of a few penguins we will see in this ranking. Everton’s is the lowest ranked as it appears the penguin was coerced into appearing on the jumper. 4. West Bromwich Albion – A bold move from West Brom to make it look like Santa is a Baggies fan. 6. Leicester City – Get rid of the Leicester badge and you’ve got a jumper so suave it could be worn all through the year. Even with the badge it remains a fine effort. 20 18. Southampton – This looks like the intern was tasked with making a Christmas jumper. Then the intern gave it to his own intern. And he gave it a child. And that child did a very, very bad job. 20 1. Swansea City – They are bottom of the Premier League table, but who cares about that as Swansea have won talkSPORT’s Christmas Jumper award for 2017! That’s the only thing that matters in this world.last_img read more

Mayor gets unanimous support

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREFrumpy Middle-aged Mom: My realistic 2020 New Year’s resolutions. Some involve doughnuts.Villaraigosa said he and his staff worked hard to get the 15 council members to back his efforts as part of an orchestrated campaign to develop momentum for the legislative committee hearings that will begin Monday. “Let me tell you, I have not worked this hard for something in a long time,” Villaraigosa said. “I haven’t worked this hard since the election.” Assembly Bill 1381 would give Villaraigosa greater control over the 727,000-student district – the second-largest in the nation – similar to the power of mayors in New York and Chicago. Under the measure, a council of mayors from Los Angeles and other cities that are part of LAUSD would have the power to hire a superintendent and give initial review to spending. The plan also would create a strong school superintendent position with an elected school board dealing almost exclusively with policy issues. Decrying the status quo while declaring the desperate need for school reform, the City Council voted unanimously Friday to support Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa’s proposed legislation to take over the Los Angeles Unified School District. Buoyed by the strong show of support after hours of council debate, Villaraigosa said he is preparing for “hand-to-hand” combat next week, when lawmakers in Sacramento will decide whether to approve the bill. “I am very, very, very gratified by the council vote,” Villaraigosa said at a news conference after the meeting. “It was important to let the state know how important this issue is to us in Los Angeles. “But make no mistake, it will not be easy in Sacramento. I will be up there fighting all the way to get this through.” The measure has changed in recent weeks to reflect concerns over its constitutionality and whether the city would face any liability for the mayor’s actions. Other changes dealing with budget policies, public comment and involvement, and staffing are undergoing review, mayoral aides said. But school officials said the changes are unnecessary and could hamper progress that already has been made. School board President Marlene Canter, wearing a blue-and-white “I support reform” lapel button, said the district is not getting credit for the changes it has made to put students on the road to success. “We want to work with the city,” Canter said. “We don’t need legislation to form a partnership. And I do support reform. But I have not been part of this dialogue with the mayor. “I was elected six years ago. We had started to change and we are beginning to see the results of that. We are moving faster than any other part of the state of California. We are doing that because we have an education program that we refine every day. “This bill doesn’t address any of those education issues.” Canter said the problem with the school system is that generations of students were allowed to move ahead without being able to read. Once new instruction programs began, that started to change, she said. But city officials said the change is coming too slowly – and at too high a price. Councilman Ed Reyes, who represents some of the poorer areas of the city, held up a map showing that the highest crime rates are around schools in his district. “Something has got to be done,” Reyes said. “We cannot allow this to continue.” Other council members revived years of complaints over the LAUSD and its refusal to work with them or the city on a variety of programs – from the initial creation of the LA’s BEST after-school program to current efforts involving the joint use of land or school siting. Councilwoman Wendy Greuel said her San Fernando Valley district has seen private schools flourish because of parents’ belief that the LAUSD fails to provide a quality education. “The status quo is not acceptable,” Greuel said. “Is this a cure-all? No. But something needs to be done and it needs to be done soon.” Councilman Alex Padilla, who pushed to include amendments to ensure board members would be able to hire their own staffs, said he was supporting the measure because of his belief the City Council should play a role in education. “We all recognize there is a lot of good going on in the district, but there is so much that needs to be done that it is time to look at a change,” Padilla said. Councilman Jose Huizar, who was an LAUSD board member before being elected to the City Council, has been among the most ardent supporters of the proposal. “If you had experienced what I did when I was a board member, there would be no question in your mind about the need for this,” Huizar said. “This will bring about a cultural revolution in the school district.” Villaraigosa, as part of his mayoral campaign, also received support from the leaders of several business organizations, including the United Chambers of the San Fernando Valley, the Encino Chamber of Commerce, the East Los Angeles Chamber of Commerce, the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce and the Central City Association. Pamela Carradi of the United Chambers, said her group has long supported reform of the LAUSD. “We wanted to see the district broken up,” Carradi said. “But we support the mayor’s plan. The status quo is simply unacceptable.” Villaraigosa said it was important for him to have a cross section of support. “People say to me that this will be good only for the poor schools,” Villaraigosa said. “That’s not it. This will only work if it works for the San Fernando Valley, if it works for East Los Angeles, South Los Angeles. “It has to work for all the children of the city or we will all fail.” rick.orlov@dailynews.com (213) 978-0390160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
