El Hacen, absolute hero in Lugo; Sekou was not summoned

first_imgThe eight Real Valladolid players assigned to other clubs had different luck, although The great winner was El Hacen again.

Yesterday in the match against Oviedo he played 79 minutes and scored again the only goal of the game, also head, and since his arrival the Lucenses add two victories, six points, two goals in favor, those of the Mauritanian who plays midfielder, and none against, being the best of his team and giving air to his team, which is about to leave the relegation places. On the opposite side was Luismi, that did not disentangle in his team, which premiered technician. The midfielder of the Azulón team played the whole game and continues adding minutes. Oviedo is now four points away from Albacete, of salvation. Marcos André he returned to play as a starter in the Mirandés who lost in the discount in Extremadura (3-2). The Brazilian striker played 71 minutes and did not participate too much in his team’s game, nor did he have clear chances. Nor could he enjoy a victory Álvaro Aguado with Numancia, which was traced in Albacete (2-1). The player assigned by Real Valladolid has become essential for Carrión and all the football of his team goes through it, but the bad moment of the Sorianos is also affecting him. If he celebrated a victory, however, Chris Ramos on his return to the pitch after an injury that has taken him several weeks in the dry dock. The Andalusian entered in the 61st minute to replace Aquino, in the victory of the pacenses against Talavera (2-0).

Big day for Calabar’s Warren Barrett Jr at Charlie Fuller Memorial

first_imgPan-American Games champion Fedrick Dacres dominated the discus at the Charlie Fuller Field Events Memorial on Saturday.However, it was a busy Warren Barrett Jr who had the biggest day on the expansive Manchester High School campus. Barrett continued his fine form in the shot put with a resounding win in the boys’ Class One event and competed fiercely in the men’s competition.Afterwards, the Calabar schoolboy said his main target is the World Junior Championships.He started the day with a loss in the Class One discus to schoolboy rival Sanjae Lawrence of Petersfield High.Then Dacres took centre stage. Defeated last week at the JC/Purewater meet by UWI training partner Traves Smikle, Dacres took charge in the first round with a spin of 59.20 metres and then pulled away with throws measured at 61.71 and 62.41 metres, respectively, in the second and third rounds.The 2014 Commonwealth Games finalist, Chad Wright, was second with a fourth-round mark of 58.27 metres. Smikle was third after a first throw of 57.42.”My first meet was a bit off, but I pulled it through today a bit,” said the discus ace.He expects to improve as the season goes on.”We’ve just started technique work, so I’m not really as efficient as I’d want to be right now,” he reflected.Asked about a recent knee injury, he said, “It’s getting better, but it’s not where I want to be.”With World Championships bronze medal winner O’Dayne Richards watching, Wright won an entertaining shot put with a smooth spin of 18.25 metres. Dacres edged Barrett for second by two centimetres, 17.66 to 17.64 metres.BARRETT-LAWRENCE CLASHThe Class One boys’ shot had been billed as a clash between Barrett and Lawrence, but the Calabar boy was off the mark quickly with a first-round blast of 18.47 metres.Lawrence, who put the shot 18.74 in Montego Bay on the previous Saturday, improved steadily to 17.85m, but that wasn’t even enough for second, as Kyle Mitchell hit the jackpot with a booming last-round shot of 18.48 metres.Fortunately for Barrett, he closed with big throws of 18.75 and 18.75 metres late in the competition.Barrett believes the throws against Wright and Dacres affected him in the Class One event.”It probably held back my performance in the Class One shot at 18.75, but I’m pleased, regardless,” he said when his long day of throwing was complete.”Over the World Junior qualification again, I can’t complain,” he summarised.He first surpassed the World Junior qualifying distance of 18.25 at the JC meet when he won the Class One shot with a massive last-round throw of 19.40 metres.Asked what his main target was this year, Barrett was succinct.”World Juniors 2016. World Juniors,” was his smiling response.In other events at the Memorial, Janelle Fullerton of St Jago and formerly of Edwin Allen took the girls’ Class One shot with a winning put of 14.64 metres. Tamoy Housen of XLCR won in Class Two with a best of 12.91 metres. Ardenne High’s Oggary Martin cleared exactly 2.0 metres to triumph in the boys’ Class One high jump and Faithlyn Irving of Holmwood spanned 5.19 metres to win the Class Three long jump for girls.last_img read more

Atletico salvage 1-1 derby draw against Real

first_imgBARCELONA, Spain (AP):Atletico Madrid substitute Luciano Vietto scored a late goal to snatch a 1-1 draw against crosstown rivals Real Madrid yesterday, denying Rafa Benitez’s side the chance to reclaim the Spanish league lead.Karim Benzema gave Madrid a great start with his league-leading sixth goal to quiet the Vicente Calderon crowd just nine minutes into the match, and goalkeeper Keylor Navas protected that advantage by saving Antoine Griezmann’s penalty in the 22nd minute.But as Madrid settled for defending instead of seeking a second goal to seal the win, Atletico pushed forward and Vietto poked in a cross from fellow substitute Jackson Martinez that the goalie couldn’t handle in the 83rd.”We had the win in our hands,” Navas said. “This isn’t the result we wanted, but it’s a point and we have to value it. We committed a mistake and in these games errors are paid for dearly.”SQUANDERED OPPORTUNITYStill unbeaten, Madrid squandered the opportunity to overtake Villarreal at the top of the standings after the leader lost 1-0 at Levante earlier.Madrid were left one point behind in second place, level on points with Celta Vigo in third and Barcelona in fourth after the defending champions’ 2-1 loss at Sevilla on Saturday.Diego Simeone’s Atletico remained in fifth place, three points off Vilarreal’s pace.”We snatched a point, and tried to get the win, but it wasn’t to be,” the 21-year-old Vietto said after his first goal for Atletico since transferring from Villareal following his breakout last season.last_img read more

Trio slapped with fines for breaches of conduct

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC): Three players have been slapped with fines by the West Indies Cricket Board for breaches of the Code of Conduct during the opening round of the Regional First-Class Championship last weekend. All-rounders Dave Bernard Jr and Kevin Stoute, along with off-spinner Shane Shillingford, were all fined 10 per cent of their match fees for Level One breaches. Bernard, who plays for Jamaica Scorpions and Stoute, who represents Barbados Pride, were both charged for showing dissent at an umpire’s decision by excessive appealing for lbw decisions that were given not out during the encounter between the two teams at Kensington Oval. Shillingford, meanwhile, was penalised for “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game” after he pointed to his elbow during an appeal for a catch while he was batting in the Windward Islands Volcanoes second innings against Guyana Jaguars at the National Stadium at Providence in Georgetown. His actions were adjudged to be an attempt to influence the umpire’s decision. The players all admitted to the charges and accepted the sanctions.last_img read more

Narine grabs two wickets with new action in comeback

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):West Indies off-spinner Sunil Narine made his highly anticipated return to competitive cricket in Trinidad Saturday, as he continued his comeback from a career-threatening international ban.Boasting a remodelled action, the 27-year-old captured two for 37 in a 10-over spell as his domestic club Queen’s Park beat Clarke Road by 32 runs at Wilson Road in the opening round of the 50-overs championship.He was watched by Trinidad and Tobago Red Force head coach, Gus Logie, along with national coach Kelvin Williams.”They were very happy with the fact that during his last few overs he got back his pace on the deliveries, so all in all it was a good day for him,” Queen’s Park coach David Furlonge told The Guardian newspaper here.Narine had not bowled competitively since being forced out of the Bangladesh Premier League last November, with the announcement of the International Cricket Council (ICC) ban.He was reported during West Indies’ series against Sri Lanka and subsequent tests showed that his action was exceeding the 15-degree level of tolerance permitted under ICC regulations.The Trinidadian has since undergone rehabilitation on his action and is scheduled to be tested at the Loughborough University in England next month, to determine if he is fit to return to international cricket.Narine was last week named in a West Indies 15-man squad for the Twenty20 World Cup starting in India in March.However, his place will only be confirmed once his action is deemed legal following the Loughborough test.- CMClast_img read more

Take Ian Links in the fourth

first_img FIRST SUPER-6 FANCIES With CAPTAIN GRANVILLE (21-1) and ZEEVA (10-1) scoring notable upsets at Caymanas Park last Saturday, the Pick-9 had no takers and the carry-over to tomorrow stands at $3.6 million. This should ensure a Pick-9 payout in excess of $5 million. Both Super-6s on the other hand were cornered and start anew with guaranteed minimums of $750,000. The Pick-9 will embrace races three to 11, the first Super-6 from race one to six, the late Super-6 from race six to 11. We look at the first Super-6, which gets under way with a $450,000-$400,000 claiming race over the straight five course to be contested by six starters. Despite the small field, the race promises keen competition, what with the presence of last Saturday’s course winner, ZEEVA, ROCKETEER, FRANKENSTOR and OFFICIAL REPORT, who has beaten better in the not too distant past. Trained by Philip Lee, OFFICIAL REPORT last won over this trip via the Stewards’ Room last August on the disqualification of WOMAN IS BOSS in overnight allowance company and with a mere 48.0kg with apprentice Javaniel Patterson aboard, gets the nod over FRANKENSTORM and ZEEVA. Next on the programme is a maiden condition race for four-year-olds and up, which will more than likely come down to a straight fight between BIG BUCK with apprentice Jerome Innis and MR. TOPPER TOP MAN with in-form Aaron Chatrie aboard. Both finished second and third, respectively, behind FREE RANGE over 1200 metres last Saturday, but with Chatrie replacing female apprentice Andree Powell aboard the Donovan Plummer-trained MR. TOPPER TOP MAN, he should reverse the placings as only three-quarter length separated them at the finish. (1) OFFICIAL REPORT/FRANKENSTORM (20 MR. TOPPER TOP MAN/BIG BUCK (3) GENUINE FRIEND/EXPLOSIVE PRINCESS (4) IAN LINKS (5) RAY RAY/NO MONEY FRIEND (6) UNCLE G/LEGAL ACCOUNT The useful but unpredictable GENUINE FRIEND, with 3.0kg claiming apprentice Odean Edwards aboard, is weighed to win the third race over 1200 metres for five-year-olds and up. The 6-y-o mare from the stables of Linton Calder has come down 4.0kg in the weights and if getting it right at the start, should win from the front running EXPLOSIVE PRINCESS with top jockey Dane Nelson up and SEMPER FIDELIS in a field of 11. IAN LINKS, who beat all barring the promising SOL SENOR over 1400 metres in March 5, should go one better in the fourth race over a mile – for maiden three-year-olds – with former champion Omar Walker riding for 15-time champion trainer Wayne DaCosta. MR DOITBETTA and HEY CHAMP are twin dangers in a 14-strong field. Briefly, the last two races in the first Super-6 should be won by RAY RAY (Oneil Beckford up) and down in class UNCLE G with apprentice Patterson aboard. Their respective dangers are NO MONEY FRIEND and LEGAL ACCOUNT. USEFUL BUT UNPREDICTABLElast_img read more
