Graham inspires STETHS to semi-final win

first_imgWestern Bureau: Neville Graham scored a blistering free kick yesterday to inspire St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) to a 2-1 ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup semi-final victory over Lennon High in driving rain at the Juici Park in Clarendon. The winners will face Dinthill Technical High in the December 5 final. The Santa Cruz-based STETHS will now have a chance to add the biggest title of them all – the daCosta Cup – to their Ben Francis Cup win and keep them on track to winning three of the four schoolboy titles on offer. Graham, the STETHS left-back, has been playing like a man possessed all season and was all over the field, grimacing as a result of a leg injury that he has been playing through. Like an injured soldier, he battled on to score the opening goal in the 19th minute. His teammate and the competition’s deadliest striker, Michael Kerr, netted his 29th goal of the campaign from the penalty spot in the 66th minute, as STETHS regained the lead after Shawayne Nelson had equalised for the Merron Gordon-conditioned Lennon. It was yet another familiar outcome for STETHS as they seem always able to create goals and wins. Lennon hit back in the 50th minute after STETHS had taken the lead. Nelson outran his marker and struck a low, hard shot under STETHS goalie Kenroy Wallace to level the score at 1-1. But STETHS found the winner, when Kerr slotted home from the penalty spot, after the referee penalised Lennon for a handled ball in the box. STETHS came close to making it 3-1. Graham’s shot from an acute angle in the 77th minute had Lennon goalkeeper Shevoy Williams in serious trouble, but the ball failed to dip sufficiently and crashed against the crossbar, much to the relief of the entire Lennon squad and their band of supporters. A venue for the final is expected to be announced early this week by ISSA.last_img read more

Sports Ministry to Relocate for SKD Complex Renovation

first_imgThe Ministry of Youth and Sports is relocating from the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville to 19th Street Sinkor due to the impending renovation of the Complex.The ministry, which has been occupying the SKD Sports Complex for nearly nine years, is expected to move by Saturday, June 21, 2014, according to its Press and Public Affairs Department.The repair work at the Complex is set at the cost of US$16 million agreement signed between the Liberian government and the People’s Republic of China (PRC) in July-2013.The senior engineer and chief of Chinese technical team, Mr. Yi Xuebo said, “the renovation is duly authorized by the PRC government and it is a Chinese fully funded project.”Engineer Yi said, “the US$16 million is temporary because it could be a bit higher during the actual construction period.”He named areas to be renovated as the playing pitch, track, tennis court, scoreboard, practice pitch and around the field.Youth and Sports Minister Eugene Nagbe said a comprehensive renovation will lead to the restoration of the SKD Sports Complex.The renovation is expected to last for about two years.Earlier, the formal agreement, known as the Letter of Exchange Notes, was signed between Foreign Minister Augustine K. Ngafuan and Chinese Ambassador, Zhao Jianhua.Ambassador Zhao said the renovation of the Complex is the PRC’s first ever project and assured Liberians of a brand new complex.He added that the Complex is a manifestation of the Chinese friendship towards the Government and People of Liberia.Foreign Minister Ngafuan described the project as a continuation of a “Good Partnership.”“You have entered a terrain that is very close to a lot of Liberians…sports, which they call (here) the passion of life,” he said, “sports is not just for recreation but also for reconciliation which is also good for progress.”The Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex is a multi-purpose stadium built in 1986. The decade’s civil war destroyed the 35,000 capacity’s Complex.In September 2005 a US$7.6 million renovation began and completed two years later was done by Hunan Constructing Engineering Group Corporation.Meanwhile, as the result of the Complex impending closure the National County Meet will be held at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium in Monrovia.However, the shutting down of the tennis court would not affect the over 600 youths that are involved in the game, because the Liberia Tennis Federation (LTF) has been experiencing leadership crisis for about  18 months.LTF Secretary General John P. Dexter and Acting President, Houssein Cheaitou have been tussling over the leadership of the federation to the detriment of the sport.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Captains go up to battalion chiefs

first_imgMONTEBELLO – The Montebello Fire Department has added two battalion chiefs to the department to enable it to run more efficiently, officials said. Capts. Kevin Collinge and Dominic Hebert have been promoted and will start their new assignments by the end of the year. The 76-member department now has four battalion chiefs. “This change will make the department run smoother and ensure the best possible service to the community,” said Interim Fire Chief James A. Murphy. By the time the pay change takes effect, Murphy said, the fiscal year will have about seven remaining months. There is also a fiscal advantage to the hires because there will be less overtime, since each shift needs a battalion chief, Murphy said. If the City Council had not promoted them, the department would have had a gap with the retirement of the battalion chief and would’ve had to spend time and money recruiting, Assistant City Administrator Diane Albert said. “There will be a seamless and smooth transition,” Albert said. The department, she said, is currently recruiting firefighters to fill out its roster. sandra.molina@sgvn.com (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Both Hebert and Collinge have served in the department for more than 20 years. “They are both up to the job,” said Interim City Administrator Randy Narramore. The raise in pay for the new battalion chiefs will be absorbed in the city’s 2007-08 budget by an unfilled opening in the department and the pending retirement of a current battalion chief. last_img read more

RESIDENTS LEFT OUTRAGED AS WORK STOPS ON POT-HOLE FILLED ROAD

first_imgResidents in Annagry have expressed their anger after council workers stopped repairing a pothole-filled road – just hours after they started to repair it. More than 100 people living on the Glen Road say they have been waiting months to have the stretch of road fixed.The road, which is about a mile long, is littered with potholes and has led to damage to a number of local cars, claim residents. One resident contacted Donegal Daily to say they have now organised a meeting for this evening to try and address the matter.“The road is extremely busy througout the day and has a history of being the worst road around.“We were delighted when we saw workers arriving to start the repairs. But after about two hours they just left and headed in the direction of Loughanure.“We have been given no explanation for it. But we certainly won’t take things lying down,” said the woman.   RESIDENTS LEFT OUTRAGED AS WORK STOPS ON POT-HOLE FILLED ROAD was last modified: July 27th, 2012 by StephenShare 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)last_img read more
