I am proud of you, team,” Nimley.Photo: Spartak MoscowLiberia’s Russian-based forward Sylvanus Nimley’s fourth goal in the 2018 Russian National Football League could not have come anytime better than midweek, after he scored a late goal to rescue a point for Spartak Moscow II in a 2-2 stalemate against Luch Vladivostok on Wednesday, October 24.Spartak were down 2-1, with little or no time left to play, and the 20-year-old Liberian forward scored in the 90th minute after smartly cutting through to connect with teammate Rudkovsky Egor’s through-pass and hit it past goalkeeper Kotlyarov Alexander.Spartak took the lead in the 12th minute through Vladislav Panteleev before Pauel Golyshev leveled the scores in the 21st minute to end the first half 1-1. Luch took the lead for the first time after Nail Zamaliev struck from outside the penalty area to make it 2-1 against Spartak.However, Spartak kept pushing for an equalizer with Nimley coming close in the 73rd minute with a strike, but a little inaccurate, before scoring the long-awaited equalizer 13 minutes later.“Not the result we were counting on, but it was a real battle!

Rain to taper down after Tuesday chaos

first_imgPALMDALE – Rain is expected to diminish this afternoon to scattered rain showers and a slight chance of thunderstorms. Partly cloudy or mostly sunny skies are forecast for Thursday and Friday, with a 20 percent chance of rain returning Saturday and sticking through at least Monday, the National Weather Service said. Before sliding Tuesday afternoon into the Antelope Valley, the latest storm caused havoc on the main traffic artery leading into the valley. Sixteen cars were involved in four separate collisions at late morning Tuesday on the southbound Antelope Valley Freeway in Santa Clarita, tying up traffic along a 2.5-mile stretch of the freeway. “There were no major injuries in any of the collisions, that’s the good news,” California Highway Patrol officer Michelle Esposito said. A CHP officer traveling on the shoulder of the 14 freeway attempting to get to the scene of another accident near San Fernando Road was involved in a minor collision when a van swerved to the right and clipped the left rear of the patrol car, causing minor damage, she said. Antelope Valley rainfall remains slightly below normal for the season. Since last summer, 6.88 inches fell as of Monday night on Palmdale – down .69 inch from normal for this time of year. Last year, the wettest on record in the Antelope Valley, had 15.72 inches of rain by this time. Charles F.
