0Shares0000Barding High School players celebrate after scoring against passenga. PHOTO/COURTESYKISUMU, Kenya, Aug 5- Passenga’s journey to a second successive Airtel Rising Stars national crown was cut short by a sharp Barding side that blanked them 2-0 in the semifinal fixture played before a partisan crowd at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu on Friday morning.Benjamin Ojiambo struck twice, five minutes into the match and bang on the stroke of half time to guide the hosts to the championship match in their ARS debut. Both sides saw red and finished the fixture with 10 players each, Barding’s Dennis “Junior” Oduor and Passenga’s Jimmy Maina dismissed by the match referee.Barding will now face Laiser Hill who were pushed all the way by Friends School Bukembe, eventually bossing the result courtesy of a 3-2 score at the Kisumu Boys Grounds.Laiser opened the scoring through Richard Odanda’s 20th minute strike before Joe Waithaka added the second thirteen minutes later. Victor Omondi would pull one back for Bukembe, scoring three minutes to the break as Laiser took a 2-1 lead into the breather.Harambee Stars under-20 midfielder Kevin Owino would extend Laiser’s lead after the restart, his 50th minute goal from the penalty spot giving the Metropolitan region representatives a 3-1 lead before Omondi landed his double in the 90th minute, too little too late for first timers Bukembe.Girls defending champions Wiyeta set up the stage for a successful title defence, seeing off hosts Nyakach Girls 2-0 in the early kick off at the Moi Stadium in Kisumu.Judith Musimbi was a handful for Nyakach, an ever present danger either with her distribution or finishing. She started and finished her own goal, plundering the ball into the net for Wiyeta’s opening goal after 29 minutes of the first half and before playing a hand in Sheila Anyango’s 63rd minute goal that killed off Nyakach.They will now face St. John’s Kaloleni who relied on the exploits of keeper Regina Shehe to crawl into the championship match, beating Nginda Girls 6-5 on penalties after the two sides were tied 1-1 after regulation and extra time.Nginda had gone ahead through Kitaru Christina’s early strike that was cancelled out by Aminah Randi’s 70th minute goal.Neither side would find the back of the net in the ensuing period and after both sides had gone through the motion of the penalty shootout, Shehe’s save of Mary Wambui’s penalty attempt saw St. John’s return for a first ARS national final appearance since 2014 when they fell to Butere Girls in the final.Collated ResultsGirls SemifinalsWiyeta 2 Nyakach 0, St. John 1 Nginda 1 (St. John’s win 6-5 on sudden death penalties)Boys semifinalsBarding 2 Passenga 0, Laiser Hill 3 Bukembe 2Final PairingsGirlsThird place playoff; Nyakach v NgindaFinal ; Wiyeta v St. JohnsBoysThird Place Playoff; Passenga v BukembeFinal; Barding v Laiser Hill0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
“We’re in the middle of summer, and we just said why not, because kids are out of school,” said Dan Fellman, head of distribution for Warner Bros. “It certainly turned out to be the right decision.” “Order of the Phoenix” did more business in five days than each of the first three “Harry Potter” movies did in their first full week, and it nearly matched the $146 million first week total of the fourth film, “Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” Fellman said. Warner Bros. counts on the “Harry Potter” frenzy to persist with the publication Saturday of the final book in the series, “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows.” “People are going to have Potter mania happening again when the book comes out,” said Paul Dergarabedian, president of box-office tracker Media By Numbers. “They’ll be walking book in hand into the movie theater.” By the numbers Estimated ticket sales for Friday through Sunday at U.S. and Canadian theaters, according to Media By Numbers LLC. Final figures will be released today.1. “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix,” $77.4 million.2. “Transformers,” $36 million.3. “Ratatouille,” $18 million.4. “Live Free or Die Hard,” $10.9 million.5. “License to Wed,” $7.4 million.6. “1408,” $5.01 million.7. “Evan Almighty,” $5 million.8. “Knocked Up,” $3.7 million.9. “SiCKO,” $2.65 million.10. “Ocean’s Thirteen,” $1.9 million.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Warner Bros. fantasy sequel “Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix” conjured up a $77.4 million debut to lead the weekend box office, according to studio estimates Sunday. That raised the movie’s total domestic gross to $140 million since opening Wednesday. “Order of the Phoenix” also has taken in an additional $190.3 million in 44 other countries where it began rolling out Wednesday. “Transformers,” the DreamWorks-Paramount sci-fi tale that was the previous weekend’s No.1 movie, slipped to second place with $36 million, lifting its total to $223 million. The weekend’s other new wide release, grisly horror story “Captivity” from Lionsgate and After Dark Films, opened out of the top 10 with $1.55 million, coming in at No.12. The movie stars Elisha Cuthbert as a model who is abducted and tortured. “Order of the Phoenix” expanded overall business for Hollywood. The top 12 movies took in $171.1 million, up 14 percent from the same weekend last year, when “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest” was No.1 with $62.3 million. The fifth chapter in the movie series based on J.K. Rowling’s novels about the teen wizard, “Order of the Phoenix” has Harry (Daniel Radcliffe) leading a secret society of students to prepare for the coming showdown with the evil Lord Voldemort. The previous four “Harry Potter” flicks all had bigger first weekends, ranging from $88.4 million to $102.7 million, but those all debuted Friday. “Order of the Phoenix” was the first to get a jump on the weekend with a Wednesday opening.
Burke has about $5 million to work with under the league’s $39 million cap as the Ducks (18-16-7) fight to climb from 11th place in the Western Conference and into playoff contention. A.J. Perez, (562) 499-1338 firstname.lastname@example.org 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “I’m not much on what guys did before they got here,” said Burke, the Mighty Ducks general manager, in a conference call with reporters. “This business, fortunately or unfortunately, is based on what can you do for me today. I felt the goal production to date certainly didn’t merit the salary paid to date.” Sykora, 29, was in the final year of his contract that pays $3.1 million, the third-highest salary on the Ducks. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Kondratiev, 22, switched American Hockey League jerseys as he went from the Hartford Wolf Pack to the Portland Pirates, two teams that happened to be playing each other Sunday. The Russian played 29 games with the Rangers and four in Hartford this season. Burke said he eventually sees the 6-foot-1, 194-pound Kondratiev as a solid fourth defenseman in the NHL. The move comes nearly two months after the Ducks traded former Hart Trophy winner Sergei Fedorov and a draft pick to Columbus for little-known defenseman Francois Beauchemin. With the trade of Sykora, the Ducks have none of their top four scorers from the 2003-04 season left on the roster. The Ducks enter play tonight against the Kings at the Pond tied for 26th in the league in scoring. “Does this mean in some way we don’t consider ourselves a playoff team?” Burke said. “Absolutely not. Nothing can be further from the truth.” It didn’t take an abacus for Brian Burke to surmise that another former All-Star on the Mighty Ducks’ roster was expendable. Petr Sykora’s seven goals and 13 assists, Burke said, just didn’t jive with his contract – and that’s why the right winger found himself bound for the New York Rangers along with a fourth-round pick for minor-league defenseman Maxim Kondratiev on Sunday.
Celtic won 5-1 in their last meeting with Rangers 1 Old Firm rivals Celtic and Rangers will face each other for a place in the final of the Betfred Cup.The Glasgow giants were paired together in the draw for the last four, with Aberdeen facing Championship side Morton.Premiership champions Celtic beat promoted Rangers 5-1 when the sides met earlier this month.The semi-finals will take place on the weekend of October 22-23, with the final being played on November 27.Celtic needed two late goals against Alloa on Wednesday to secure their place in the last four while Rangers, winners of the trophy by beating the Bhoys in 2011, eased past Queen of the South.Morton are through to the semi-finals for the first time since 1979 while Aberdeen, last-gasp winners over St Johnstone on Thursday, are looking to regain the cup they won in 2014.
1 England were hugely disappointing against Slovenia, yet Germany’s team coordinator Oliver Bierhoff believes Gareth Southgate’s men are one of the “strongest teams in the world”.Throwing paper planes onto the pitch was one of the main forms of entertainment for England fans on Thursday, when there was precious little to shout about for the Wembley faithful until Harry Kane snatched a late 1-0 win.MATCH REPORT: Kane’s late winner papers over England cracks in dull victory over SloveniaPLAYER RATINGS: ‘Same old England’ – talkSPORT’s verdict of Wembley winSouthgate’s side secured World Cup qualification with a match to spare despite the abject display and the Football Association wasted no time in announcing back-to-back home friendlies against Germany and Brazil next month.Given their display against Slovenia, ranked 55th in the world, November’s matches may well make for difficult viewing, but former Germany striker Bierhoff appears impressed by the Three Lions’ capabilities.“We will use autumn and spring to prepare for the World Cup, playing friendlies against the strongest teams in the world,” the team coordinator said after Germany secured their place at the World Cup by winning 3-1 in Northern Ireland.“In spring we will play Spain and Brazil, but first up we face Gareth Southgate and his team.“I’m looking forward to this classic at a fantastic stadium and I hope that as many fans as possible will follow us to London.”The November 10 clash will be the third time within 20 months that England have faced reigning world champions Germany.Roy Hodgson oversaw a remarkable 3-2 comeback win in Berlin at the start of last year, before Lukas Podolski’s stunner on his farewell match secured a 1-0 win in Dortmund despite a positive display by Southgate’s men.Five-time World Cup winners Brazil will arrive at Wembley on November 14 and it is understood a trip to Holland is lined up in March. England sealed their World Cup spot with a 1-0 win over Slovenia
ST NAUL’S stand an hour away from the Ulster Intermediate final – but boss Barry Meehan says his men face a mammoth task on Sunday.St Naul’s take on Galbally from Tyrone at Celtic Park with a berth in the Ulster decider up for grans.St Naul’s, who came from nine points down against Naomh Columba in a Donegal IFC quarter-final, ended their years of pain in winning the county title, but now they’ve lifted their sights once more. “We’re expecting a huge, huge challenge,” Meehan told Donegal Daily/Donegal Sport Hub.“They’re a serious side. I’ve been very impressed with them. People are talking about them being the favourites for the Ulster Intermediate.“They’re really on an upward curve and we’re ready for a huge battle.”St Naul’s have come through the mill at times in 2019 and Meehan believes that experience will stand to the Mountcharles side. Meehan said: “I do believe we’re battle-hardened. Division 2 in Donegal was a great experience for us. We had a lot of games when we had to come back from the jaws of defeat. That has stood us in good stead for the Championship.”Listen to the full interview below …Listen: Barry Meehan expecting ‘huge challenge’ for St Naul’s in Ulster semi was last modified: November 14th, 2019 by Chris McNultyShare 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) Tags:2019 Ulster club IFCBarry MeehanBrendan McColeMOUNTCHARLESPeadar MohanSt.NaulsStephen Griffin

Garda Commissioner Noreen O’Sullivan has sought a report into the decline of Garda numbers within the Donegal DivisionShe will then evaluate the matter on a county wide basis in conjunction with senior Garda authorities and report back once her report is completed.Deputy Pat the Cope Gallagher Leas-Cheann Comhairle has welcomed the reply which he has received from the Garda Commissioner. Pat the Cope welcomed the commitment of the Garda Commissioner to have the matter looked into and a report compiled on the current compliment of Gardaí serving within the Donegal Division and the decline in numbers which has occurred over the past 6 years and the impact that is having on service delivery.“This is a matter which I have raised on a number of occasions in Dail Éireann, with the Department of Justice and most recently with the Garda Commissioner, the commitment to have a report compiled is a welcome first step and it will be imperative that Garda management take real action and that Garda numbers will be increased within the Division on a phased basis over a prescribed period of time.”Pat the Cope has further requested the Garda Commissioner by way of written correspondence – as an interim solution to the shortage of Gardaí in the Donegal Division to proactively look at all current internal Garda transferees, who are seeking to transfer into the Donegal Division and fast track their transfer in order to deal with the current shortages within the Garda ranks in the County.“The Donegal Division has experienced massive decline in Garda numbers over the past 6 years and the situation is steadily worsening- it is going to essential that immediate action is taken to strengthen Garda numbers and to properly resource the Donegal Division in order that they can carry out their duties to meet the growing challenges facing them on a daily basis,” concluded Pat the Cope.
