first_imgRelatedPosts Nigeria dying under Buhari’s jackboot, by Tunde Odesola Edo poll: APC supporters commend Buhari for providing level playing field Buhari holds closed-door meeting with Ghana’s President The Nigeria Football Federation has budgeted N7.5 billion for the total expenditure of the Federation in the year 2020. This was contained in a communique signed and made available after the Board’s meeting in Edo State on Tuesday. According to the communique, the Congress commended the NFF for a sterling financial performance in the year 2018, which saw unprecedented income from sponsors and others sources to complement Government support, in spite of the distractions and challenges. The sum of N7.5 billion is earmarked for total expenditure of the Federation for the year 2020. The Congress approved the 2018 Financial Statement and the 2020 Budget of the NFF, the former subject to any further adjustment by external auditors PricewaterhouseCoopers, and also approved that the Financial Statement shall be published in at least four national newspapers to ensure wider circulation to all stakeholders and further entrench the transparency mantra of the NFF. “In view of the toxic environment and the reputational damage that the spate of negative reports, half-truths, falsehood and insidious rumours are causing for the Nigerian Football ecosystem, Congress charged aggrieved stakeholders and other Members of the Football family to adopt more meaningful, fruitful and useful dispute resolution methods in the interest of the Nigerian game, by escalating their grievances to the Congress for amicable settlement,” the communique said. The General Assembly also agreed that the reports of the Statutes Amendment Committee and the Reforms Committee of the NFF be stepped down pending the assent of President Muhammadu Buhari to the NFF Bill, which has already been passed by both chambers of the National Assembly. After the presidential assent, the reports would then be harmonised with the new Bill, the Congress agreed. The Congress commended members of both committees for the work done so far. The Congress endorsed a proposal by the Executive Committee for a fresh, five-year contract for the NFF General Secretary, Dr. Mohammed Sanusi, with effect from January 1, 2020, while a four-year contract (the first year being probationary) was approved for the Deputy General Secretary, Dr. Emmanuel Ikpeme. The Assembly however charged the General Secretary to institute processes and methods to ensure a more efficient and effective NFF Secretariat. The Congress also charged the NFF Board and Secretariat to work assiduously to ensure the qualification of the Super Eagles for both the 2021 Africa Cup of Nations and the 2022 FIFA World Cup, and the other National Teams for their various African and global championships, while implementing robust and workable policies that will return Nigeria to the top table of youth football internationally.Tags: Muhammadu BuhariNFFSuper Eagleslast_img read more

Shooting in India has witnessed resurgence with Manu’s generation along with the next generation bringing plenty of laurels for the country. The youngster stressed that shooting in India can only go upwards. “In India, shooters are competitive and that competitive feeling, where they say, ‘Yes, I will shoot better than the other individual’ is present. The determination to give laurels to the country is immense. India will have a brighter future in shooting,” Manu said.Chaudhary continued his golden run in shooting as he secured the gold medal in the 10m air pistol event in the ISSF Shooting World Cup at the Karni Singh stadium in New Delhi on Sunday. Chaudhary defeated Serbia’s Damir Mikec with a world record score of 245.0 and he continued his golden run with yet another flawless display. The efforts of the youngster continued his brilliant run ever since he made waves in the 2018 Asian Games when he won the gold medal in the event in Jakarta. At the age of 16, Chaudhary became the first gold medal winner for India in the event and it was a meteoric rise for a young boy who loved farming. New Delhi: Manu Bhaker and Saurabh Chaudhary continued their golden run in shooting as they won the 10m Air Pistol Mixed Team event in the ISSF World Cup Shooting event in Beijing, China on Thursday. Bhaker and Chaudhary defeated Jiang Ranxin and Pang Wei of China 16-6 and it is the second consecutive gold for the duo at this event, having clinched a gold in the same category in the New Delhi edition of the shooting World Cup in February 2019. This is India’s second gold at the event after Anjum Moudgil and Divyansh Singh Panwar bagged a gold medal in the 10m Air Rifle Mixed Team by beating Liu Ruxuan and Yang Haoran 17-15.Bhaker created history by winning gold in the 10m air pistol in the World Cup in Guadalajara, in the Commonwealth Games in Gold Coast and the Youth Olympics in Buenos Aires. However, she cites the only marquee event where she did not win a medal as her most memorable. “Actually, my most memorable is the Asian Games. Although I did not win a medal, I actually scored the volume of points which I have never achieved even in practice during qualification,” Manu had said in an exclusive interview with News Nation in January.

first_imgGUYANA’S experienced players led the charge on the opening day of the eighth CARIFTA Junior Chess Championship, which is currently underway in Curacao.In total, the 14-member team finished with 11 points from 28 games on Friday.St Stanislaus students Ghansham Alijohn, Jaden Taylor and Jarrell Troyer finished with 1.5 points each, after registering a win and a draw. Troyer swept aside his opponent, Sicilian Paulsen’s mode of play with white pieces after he went for the aggressive English attack.In the second round, he threw away a material advantage, just like his schoolmate Taylor, which allowed his opponent the half point. Taylor had executed brilliantly in round one, which led to a dominant opening win.Alijohn, on the other hand, had bounced back to register an impressive draw after he lost the initiative and advantage in his opening round. In round two, his defence held and he used his wits to pounce on a slight opening to capture full points.Young Milan Ramataursing won against fellow WMCF club mate Mahesa Boodhoo in round one and managed to hold a draw against a higher-ranked opponent in round two.Chelsea Juman finished with one point. The excited youngster went down on time in round one, while in round two she rebounded to tactically destroy her opponent.Another Saints student Savir Gookul had to forfeit his game in the first round after he fell sick (vomiting, possible food poisoning), but after help from medical personnel/parents Dr Rajkumar and Dr. Ryhan Singh, the youngster was able to bounce back and win his second round.Also scoring a point was Samirah Gobin. She got off to a shaky start in round one after losing her way in the endgame. Gobin, however, bounced back nicely in round two to deliver a checkmate against her opponent. Mahir Rajkumar won his first game against a higher-ranked player and lost in round two while Arysh Raghunauth, who was nervous in his first regional tournament, played solidly to take two draws in rounds one and two.The other players Joshua Khan, Jacob McDonald and Mahesa Boodhoo are yet to come off the mark.Wendell Meusa travelled as coach, while Anand Raghunauth is head of the delegation.last_img read more

first_imgGREGORY DIXON/Herald photoBacked by a raucous home crowd, the UW volleyball team tricked previously undefeated No. 2 Penn State Friday night at the Field House. The Badgers fed off the energy of the largely costumed crowd of 5,487 — the second largest home crowd of the season — to treat fans to a 30-22, 30-28, 30-25 victory.UW outside hitter Maria Carlini led the way offensively, totaling 15 kills and a .314 hitting percentage.According to Carlini, the key to the Badgers’ success was enjoying the moment.”We were connecting so well, it was awesome,” Carlini said. “We had so much fun playing and I think when you have a lot of fun, everything’s going well.” UW seized the early momentum midway through the first game. Tied 7-7, with freshman Brittney Dolgner serving, UW ripped off a nine-point scoring run, including two Dolgner aces and three Taylor Reineke kills. Setter Jackie Simpson collected 15 game one assists en route to a match-high 48. Simpson’s 48 assists tied an individual season-high for assists in a three-game match. “I think she had an awesome night,” head coach Pete Waite said. “That’s the difference in our team. When she is on like that and she delivers the ball so the hitters are in a great rhythm, that makes for some wins for us, no doubt about it.”Game two saw the Badgers and Nittany Lions see-saw points back and forth. UW never led by more than one point until Amy Bladow blocked Penn State middle hitter Melissa Walbridge’s hit to give UW a 30-28 victory. The block was one of four in game two for the Badgers, and sent the Field House crowd into a frenzy as the teams headed off the court.”We can’t give them any runs,” Waite explained. “They are very good at just getting runs on people, starting with their serve.””You saw how excited we all get, getting big blocks like that,” Bladow said. “That was a great way to end the second game and I think it helped a lot with the momentum coming into the third.”The game two lead put UW in a commanding position heading into intermission — up two games to none — and one it necessarily did not expect to be in.”That’s always where we want to be going into the locker room,” Bladow said. “Of course, against a team like Penn State, you’re never gonna go in there believing you’re gonna be — I mean you always want to be up 2-0 — but you’re never going to go into a game underestimating a team.”UW was able to slow Nittany Lions thanks in large part to a great defensive effort against one of the league’s top freshman in Penn State’s Megan Hodge. The reigning Big Ten co-player of the week was held to a hitting percentage of zero.”She hit some phenomenal shots and angles, but I think that says a lot about for the discipline of our block,” Waite said. “To hold her to that hitting percentage means our defense and block worked very well tonight.”Down two games to none, Penn State came out determined not to give up their unblemished record without a fight. The two teams battled in another evenly matched game. Leading 28-25, with the Field House seemingly ready to lose its lid, Reineke took service. Following a rally, Bladow and Simpson combined to block Nicole Fawcett’s attack. When Kate Price was unable to return Reineke’s match-point serve, UW’s upset bid became a reality. As the UW team celebrated near the net, they were joined almost immediately by the “Block Party” student section, which stormed the court.After the game, a frustrated Penn State coach Russ Rose said he felt his team was unable to settle into the game.”I thought it was a match where we never really got into synch,” Rose said. “I think you attribute that to how well Wisconsin played, and the energy in the building was a factor … we just never found ourselves in a good rhythm.”Following a day off, UW took to the court again Sunday against Ohio State. Coming off the emotional upset win over Penn State, the Badgers avoided a letdown by beating the Buckeyes 30-15, 30-23, 30-20 behind a career performance from Taylor Reineke. The weekend sweep made amends for the Badgers’ losses to those same teams on the road earlier this season.Reineke led the Badgers with a career-record tying 14 kills and an impressive .722 hitting percentage. Reineke also pitched in seven blocks on defense.”[Ohio State] beat us in five last time, and I didn’t want that to happen ever again, especially on our home court,” Reineke said.Waite and his players expressed gratitude for the layoff between Friday’s emotional high and Sunday’s game.”I think it worked out well that we had a day in between, they could come off that high and rest a little bit. We were solid today,” Waite said.UW jumped out to a big lead early and parlayed that strong start to the first game victory and a sweep to avoid the dreaded letdown.”It was big. We talked about that, about coming out fast,” Waite said. “We were very aggressive from the beginning. That’s a very good sign for our team.”last_img read more

first_img Comments Published on February 22, 2011 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+center_img After his Denver team lost to Syracuse on Sunday, iconic head coach Bill Tierney started raving about his counterpart John Desko’s program.He discussed SU’s consistency from year to year, how difficult it was to beat Syracuse in the Carrier Dome and the athleticism of this season’s team.But Tierney kept consistently coming back to one thing: balance.‘I believe in coaching, the way to prepare your team is the overload principle,’ Tierney said. ‘When you play Syracuse, you’re going to get overloaded. They’ve got great athletes.’The talent overload has become a trademark of Syracuse lacrosse in recent years. Last year, two players were within three goals of team leader Stephen Keogh’s 31, and six players tallied more than 20 points on the season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAnd that same balance showed Sunday against Denver. Five players tallied two goals apiece, showing the well-balanced attack should return in 2011.‘I think, much like we’ve had the last few years, we’ve had different guys step up in different games,’ said SU head coach Desko. ‘Instead of relying on one person to score five or six goals in a game, we’ve been able to hurt people with a bunch of guys scoring one, two, three goals in a game.’In 2010, seven different players tallied three goals or more in a game. The Orange thrived as opponents could not focus on shutting down one particular player.Of that group, Chris Daniello, Cody Jamieson and Max Bartig graduated. Sophomore JoJo Marasco scored a hat trick against Princeton last year and takes over Daniello’s spot this season as the midfielder-attack hybrid. Redshirt junior Tim Desko has filled in for Jamieson at the other attack spot and was one of the five players to register two goals against Denver on Sunday. The Orange also has plenty of experienced midfielders to step in for Bartig, including seniors Jovan Miller, Jeremy Thompson and Josh Amidon.And that list doesn’t include senior attack Keogh, who will likely find himself ranked among the program’s Top 10 goal scorers by the end of the year.‘We want to keep it up, and we like to share it,’ John Desko said. ‘I think we’re pretty unselfish offensively. It’s something that makes us hard to cover.’Despite the offensive display SU put on against Denver, it did take some time for the group to click in the preseason. In an exhibition match against Hofstra on Feb. 5, everyone struggled to score as Syracuse mustered just five goals in a loss.By the next week, though, those issues were all but resolved as Keogh, Tim Desko and Marasco led the way, combining for eight of the team’s 11 goals in a preseason win over Maryland.And against Denver, the offense showed it had come together.‘I think we just had to get comfortable,’ Miller said. ‘I think it was a matter of when we played Hofstra, we still weren’t really clicking as a group. As time goes on, the more you practice, I think everything kind of falls into place.’SU did just that against the Pioneers, as Denver couldn’t hone in on one player to shut down. None of the Orange players scored back-to-back goals. It wasn’t a hot stick that powered the offense. Rather, it was the players’ ability to capitalize on the opportunities they got.That is what Denver head coach Tierney raved about most. The six-time national champion coach was fascinated with SU’s selflessness.And he added that’s the type of performance he prefers.‘They play so unselfishly, and they care so much about winning, and they don’t mind the extra pass,’ Tierney said. ‘You can see they get real excited when they score. They don’t care about who scores.‘As a coach, I’d much rather see that than see one guy with seven (goals) and everybody else with nothing.’zjbrown@syr.edulast_img read more

first_img Comments No. 14 Syracuse (2-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) will compete in this year’s rendition of its historic rivalry against No. 18 Johns Hopkins (2-2) Saturday at 1 p.m. in the Carrier Dome. The Orange are coming off an overtime loss to then-No. 13 Virginia last week, after a late collapse and the heroics of Cavaliers attack Michael Kraus sunk SU.Here’s what the beat writers expect for the outcome of Saturday’s game.Andrew Graham (2-2)Many birds, many stonesSyracuse 14, Johns Hopkins 9Syracuse could win this game by 10, or lose by 10, and I don’t think I would be surprised either way. The numbers seem to indicate the Orange should win — they protect the ball, defend well and score at an OK clip. Johns Hopkins has one of the nation’s worst scoring defenses. But the Blue Jays seem to have turned a corner of late. Following two blowouts at the hands of top-5 teams in the country, JHU has won two-straight, downing North Carolina and Princeton. Freshman Joey Epstein has paced the Blue Jays with 15 points. But that defense is too porous, and SU’s is too good. Ultimately, the Orange get it done, exploiting the obvious weakness.Michael McCleary (2-2)Shoo!Syracuse 14, Johns Hopkins 10AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThere’s a lot of things I’m still unsure about with Syracuse at this point of the season. One thing I’m certain about is their defense is good, and Drake Porter’s play has only made it better. Last week’s performance against Virginia, a defensive breakdown in the game’s final quarter, doesn’t look like it will happen again — not to Johns Hopkins, that is. The defense will remain stout and the Orange’s offense will do enough, which is a formula for a win against the Blue Jays who were crushed by top-5 teams in their first two games and only recently started to gain momentum.Nick Alvarez (1-3)Varsity blues Syracuse 13, Johns Hopkins 11Syracuse has been a hard team to predict this season, just look at our records. But after its first, historic-opening loss to Colgate, SU responded with its best performance of the season in a 13-5 win over Albany. Expect the Orange to rebound again. JHU has answered after a 0-2 start, yet SU’s ever-improving offense should be able to score in the zone. Stephen Rehfuss looked better last weekend, and his health should only improve against the Blue Jays. Nate Solomon is on a historic scoring streak. And let’s not forget Drake Porter’s spectacular play. In a battle of historic teams, SU pulls away late. Published on March 8, 2019 at 6:06 pmcenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

This is how we respond to changing market conditions so that we can ensure the sustainability of our business through legal action.” Related Articleslast_img read more
