KPL All Stars narrowly lose to Sevilla Atletico

first_imgChristian Gonzalez scored the lone goal of the match on the quarter hour mark, but the margin would have been bigger were it not for the astute performance of Sofapaka keeper Mathias Kigonya.The Ugandan who came in as a substitute in the Cordoba match had been drafted into the starting team replacing Boniface Oluoch in goal and he justified his start with a decent performance.Within the first minute, Kigonya was called into his first save, when he did well to block a shot from Marc Gual. The Sevilla Atletico winger had broken into the box from a swift move from the Spanish side straight from kick off, turning away from his markers before shooting at goal.The hosts were faster off the blocks and their short passing game was working well, opening up spaces to play the ball behind the Kenyan defense.On the quarter hour mark, Gonzalez broke the deadlock with the easiest of goals, tapping into an empty net after Kigonya had slipped and bumped into the ball from a freekick, Gonzalez only picking up the spills and dumping the ball home.KPL All Stars’ Vincent Oburu wheels away from Sevilla Atletico’s Bilal Bouttoba during a friendly match in Malaga on July 22, 2017.

Gual had been sent through on goal with a sleek through pass from midfield, but Kigonya came all out to pluck the ball off the forward’s feet as he attempted to side step him.The Ugandan shot stopper continued with his superb performance in goal and in the 22nd minute, he fully stretched to his left to parry away a freekick from the edge of the area curled in by skipper Curro.The Kenyans had struggled to create anything infront of goal with Vincent Oburu who was playing as the lone man upfront in a 4-5-1 formation being isolated and frequently running into traffic when he got the ball.Jackson Macharia had All-Stars’ first opportunity of the game with a shot from inside the box from a Boniface Muchiri cutback but the effort bounced off one of the defenders with another clearing for a corner.Cameroonian international keeper Fabrice Ondoa remained quiet in the Sevilla Atletico goal as the Kenyans never gave him much to work on.In the second half, the Kenyans picked up pace but still the decision making in the final third was always wanting. They did well to win the ball in midfield and played forward, but when it came to the business end, nothing gave.In the 62nd minute, Macharia was gifted with another opportunity on the counter with Muchiri once again cutting back the ball but the former’s shot was pale and rolled out of play without troubling Ondoa.Towards the end, Sevilla Atletico had three chances go begging. Amo’s shot from inside the area coming off a well executed counter rolled wide while Bilal Bouttoba also had two chances inside the box slapped wide.The team returns home on Monday with plenty of lessons as Okumbi continues to build up a team for next year’s African Nations Championship (CHAN).0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000KPL All Stars’ Samuel Onyango vies for the ball with Sevilla Atletico’s Christian Marcelo during a friendly match in Malaga on July 22, 2017.

Concussion could end Green’s career at 37

first_imgFrom news services Thanks to a conflict in sports schedules at the Trent Green household, his wife was spared the scary sight of him face down and motionless on the field Sunday in Houston. When the Miami Dolphins quarterback was knocked unconscious by a severe concussion that could end his career, wife Julie was back home in South Florida at a tennis match with their children. “She was listening to the game with an earpiece, but she didn’t have to sit and watch,” Dolphins coach Cam Cameron said Monday. “So that’s a blessing.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREChargers go winless in AFC West with season-ending loss in Kansas CityGreen’s concussion was diagnosed as grade three, the most severe, and he’ll undergo further tests to determine his future. He has been ruled out of Sunday’s game at Cleveland, and Cameron declined to discuss the possibility the injury will force the 37-year-old Green to retire. “I don’t think we really know the full extent, because there are some ongoing tests,” Cameron said. “Right now I just think there are too many unknowns.” Cleo Lemon, who replaced Green at Houston, will make his second NFL start against the Browns. Second-round draft pick John Beck becomes the backup. Green took a knee to the head blocking 315-pound tackle Travis Johnson on an end-around, then crumpled to the ground. Teammates kneeled in prayer while medical personnel revived Green, and he was strapped to a stretcher before being carted away. But he took a flight home with the team, and A.J. Feely said it was difficult to tell he had been hurt. Pittman out two months Tampa Bay running back Michael Pittman could be sidelined up to two months with an ankle sprain that has the Buccaneers scrambling for experienced help at running back. Coach Jon Gruden said the team was waiting for the results of an MRI exam, but that it appeared Pittman, injured during Sunday’s 33-14 loss at Indianapolis, will be out six to eight weeks. A knee injury ended star running back Carnell “Cadillac” Williams’ season, but Pittman was doing well before his setback. Delhomme out for year Jake Delhomme last week called surgery on his strained right elbow “a last resort.” After experiencing pain trying to throw on Monday, the Panthers quarterback decided the worst-case scenario couldn’t be avoided. Delhomme will have season-ending ligament-replacement surgery on his elbow next week, leaving the Panthers without their leader on offense and scrambling to find another quarterback. Originally injured two weeks ago, Delhomme didn’t show any improvement when trying to throw Monday. A day earlier he threw briefly on the side while sitting out Carolina’s win over the Saints. “I think (Sunday) he was just trying to see how it felt,” Coach John Fox said. “Today he really pushed it.” Goodell weighs decision Commissioner Roger Goodell will review next week whether to reduce Dallas Cowboys defensive tackle Tank Johnson’s suspension from eight to six games. “I did talk to Tank about a week ago and I’m going to be reviewing his case shortly,” Goodell said. “He has been doing some very positive things about changing his life and making better decisions going forward.” Around the league Seahawks: Longtime Seattle fullback Mack Strong has a neck injury that will end his career. It won’t require surgery, but Strong told reporters that it will end his career. The two-time Pro Bowler turned 36 this month, and has spent 15 seasons with the Seahawks. Broncos: Center Tom Nalen tore his right biceps muscle and will be out for the season. The five-time Pro Bowler was injured in the first quarter of a 41-3 loss to San Diego on Sunday, but kept playing. Eagles: Star running back Brian Westbrook said the stomach muscle he injured on Sept. 23 is getting better. He might play Sunday. 49ers: Former San Francisco 49ers president Carmen Policy has been tapped by Mayor Gavin Newsom to lead efforts to keep the team from moving to a new stadium in Silicon Valley. Jaguars: Rookie coach Bobby Petrino insisted that Joey Harrington is still the No. 1 quarterback, but former Jacksonville starter Byron Leftwich is waiting in the wings for his chance. Browns: Cleveland anxiously awaited MRI results on running back Jamal Lewis’ sprained right foot, an injury that knocked him out after one play in Sunday’s loss to New England. Chiefs: Quarterback Damon Huard is awaiting test results on his bruised shoulder that will determine if he can play this week against Cincinnati. Vikings: Sidelined for the last two games with a groin strain, Tarvaris Jackson is expected to return Sunday as the starting quarterback against Chicago.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

RBC will refinance TCI UK Bail Out loan

first_img RBC Team off to Grand Turk with EZ Pay Related Items:royal bank of canada, uk tci bail out Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 06 Jan 2015 – Royal Bank of Canada, RBC is the bank the Government will go with to refinance that UK-backed bail-out loan of 2009. The Loan Refinancing Ordinance passed on December 17th and took effect the next day. The new law lays out the who, the how, the how much and the how long among other things of the bridge loan refinancing which will do away with the UK guaranteed loan of $170 million dollars. It is outlined in the ordinance that the loan with RBC cannot exceed $28 million dollars, must be repaid at the end of three and a half years, at a rate initially of 1.2% and that it will be repaid in fourteen equal installments of two million dollars every ninety days. It is explained that in order to keep that borrowing rate, the Turks and Caicos will have to maintain a BBB+ rating for at least the duration of the loan; if we lose ground there, it will cause a hike in the borrowing rate. This also means that if the TCI secures a better credit rating, then the rate of the loan will decrease. Included in that ordinance is that the TCI can repay the RBC Loan early without penalty and that the first payment would be due ninety days after disbursement of the money.
