Aubameyang takes centre stage as injury sidelines Salah

first_imgGuinean Amadou Diawara scored his first Italian Serie A goal to earn Napoli a last-gasp 2-1 win over Chievo and keep them in hot pursuit of leaders Juventus.ENGLANDPIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG/MOHAMED ELNENY (Arsenal)The Gabon striker slotted home Danny Welbeck’s pass from close range to keep his scoring streak since becoming Arsenal’s club record signing in January.However, there was an end to forget for Egypt midfielder Elneny as he was shown a straight red card for pushing his hand into Cedric Soares’s face as tempers flared in the closing stages.STEVE MOUNIE (Huddersfield)Mounie pounced on a terrible backpass from Brighton’s Shane Duffy to salvage a priceless point for Huddersfield, who drew 1-1 in their quest to remain in the Premier League.The Benin striker now has nine goals in all competitions this season.MAME BIRAM DIOUF (Stoke)Diouf grabbed his sixth goal of the season, but admitted he couldn’t remember much about it after Tottenham Hotspur goalkeeper Hugo Lloris’s clearance smashed off the Senegalese’s face.The forward kept his balance just long enough to slot the ball into the unguarded goal.However, Diouf’s bravery didn’t ultimately help Stoke’s battle against the drop as two goals from Christian Eriksen condemned them to a 2-1 defeat, leaving them still rooted in the relegation zone.SPAINNABIL EL ZHAR (Leganes)Morocco-born former Liverpool winger El Zhar cut inside and fired into the bottom corner from the edge of the box despite slipping as he shot to give runaway La Liga leaders Barcelona some anxious moments before Lionel Messi completed his hat-trick to ensure a 3-1 victory at Camp Nou.Barcelona are unbeaten in 38 league matches, equalling the record set by Real Sociedad 38 years ago.ITALYCHEICK DIABATE (Benevento)Mali forward Diabate scored a brace to twice drag Benevento back into the game against champions Juventus, but the rock-bottom side lost 4-2 and fell to their 26th defeat in 31 games.Diabate tapped in a rebound after 24 minutes to cancel out Paulo Dybala’s opener and scored his second six minutes after the break with a header off a corner.The towering forward has scored five goals since arriving in Naples last February. But the 29-year-old — who helped save French club Metz from relegation in 2016 — looks to have arrived too late for Benevento.AMADOU DIAWARA (Napoli)Guinean midfielder Diawara scored his debut Serie A goal and a last-ditch winner that kept Napoli’s title ambitions burning with a 2-1 win over Chievo.The ball dropped for the 20-year-old midfielder to curl in a right-foot finish from a corner at the 93rd minute in Naples. “I’m very happy, it’s my first Serie A goal and it couldn’t have come at a better time,” said Diawara.“I dedicate this goal to my mother, who died a year before I came to Italy, so she didn’t get to see me play in Serie A.” Napoli remain within four points of leaders Juventus.GERMANYISHAK BELFODIL (Werder Bremen)The Algeria striker, on loan this season from Standard Liege, netted Werder Bremen’s consolation goal in a 2-1 defeat at Hanover 96.Belfodil netted his third goal in as many league games when his header looped over the Hanover goalkeeper and into the net via the crossbar.FRANCELEBO MOTHIBA (Lille)The South African forward, 22, put Lille in front at Bordeaux with his third goal in eight games since being recalled from a loan at second-tier Valenciennes in January.However, he could not stop his side from sliding to a 2-1 defeat that leaves the 2011 champions still in the relegation zone, without a win in nine games.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The absence of injured Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah allowed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to steal the limelight among the African stars in Europe at the weekend © AFP/File / Glyn KIRKPARIS, France, Apr 9 – The absence of injured Liverpool and Egypt star Mohamed Salah allowed Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to steal the limelight among the African stars in Europe at the weekend.He scored his sixth goal in eighth appearances for Arsenal since moving from Borussia Dortmund as they shaded Southampton 3-2 in a fiery English Premier League clash.last_img read more

Fulham relegated from the Premier League

first_img0Shares0000Fulham relegated from the Premier LeagueLONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 3 – Fulham were relegated from the Premier League as a 4-1 thrashing against Watford on Tuesday brought a fitting end to their turbulent one-season stay in the top flight.Scott Parker’s side had to avoid defeat at Vicarage Road to stave off their inevitable demise for a few more days. But second-bottom Fulham, 16 points from safety with five games remaining, slumped to a ninth successive loss that confirmed their relegation to the Championship.Abdoulaye Doucoure put Watford ahead in the 23rd minute before Ryan Babel’s equaliser 10 minutes later briefly gave Fulham hope.Fulham’s fate was sealed in the second half when Will Hughes, Troy Deeney and Kiko Femenia all netted for Javi Gracia’s men in the space of 12 minutes.On Saturday, bottom-of-the-table Huddersfield became only the second team after Derby in 2008 to be relegated from the Premier League in March with six games left.Three days later, Fulham followed Huddersfield through the trapdoor in what ranks as the third earliest relegation in the Premier League era.Despite a close-season investment of over £100 million ($131 million) on new signings — the most ever spent by a promoted Premier League club — the Cottagers went down with a whimper.Fulham have lost all five matches under caretaker manager Parker, but they were already destined for relegation long before he took over as the club’s third boss this term.Slavisa Jokanovic was sacked in November as Fulham owner Shahid Khan tried to lift his team out of their wretched run.But his replacement Claudio Ranieri fared even worse and was axed in February after Fulham fans turned on the Italian following seven defeats in eight league games.It was fitting that Fulham’s futile stay in the Premier League ended on the road as they have been historically bad in away fixtures.They have lost their last seven consecutive away matches and have not won away in the league for almost a year, with their tally of just two points away from home this season the lowest in the top four tiers of English football.Fulham have also conceded at least twice in 13 consecutive league games, both home and away.In contrast, Watford’s victory was the ideal preparation for Sunday’s FA Cup semi-final against Wolves at Wembley.Watford’s 13th league win this season is their most in a top-flight campaign since 1986-87.The Hornets have also eclipsed their Premier League club record of 45 points, set in 2015-16.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Belfast couple say heartfelt thanks to locals who helped after car crash

first_imgBelfast woman Sarah Orr would like to reach out and thank everyone who stopped to assist her and her husband Phil after their car and caravan crashed beside Errigal on the Dunlewey side of Glenveagh National Park on Saturday evening.The couple was towing the van with their car when strong winds and a bumpy road caused the caravan to start snaking. It became difficult to regain control and the car began to weave along the road.Speaking to Donegal Daily Sarah explained; “We go on a holiday to Donegal every year, Phil has been going to Carrickfinn since he was a wee boy so we have a lot of friends there. “We were on our way back from Carrickfinn, the road was worse than it was last year. We lost control of the van and the car began to snake and swerve. To avoid hitting a car coming towards us we swerved into a ditch and rolled over.”Sarah says the experience terrified her, and that they are very lucky to escape the wreckage alive.“We’re really lucky no one else was involved and that we walked out unhurt. The girl who saw it happen thought no one was coming out.“There are so many people I’d love to thank. A girl came over with a blanket, people stopped and hugged us and held my hand. Everyone just gathered around and helped us. “I was in shock and I don’t remember faces and names, I remember some faces, and I’ve found others on Facebook. Phil’s reaction to shock is to get things sorted but I was the opposite. Everyone was so good to me, someone gave me their coat and through Facebook I arranged to get it back to her.“I want people to know how thankful I am. There was a psychiatric nurse there who helped calm me down. From what I remember and from what Phil told me, an off duty fireman, an off duty Garda, and a GP were also on the scene! We are also so thankful for all the help and support the emergency services provided. They were really understanding and made sure we were okay.”“It was an act of God, there’s no way we should have come out of that. Apart from some aches and a few bruises we were relatively untouched. I think the marsh took the impact of the crash from the car.“Roarty’s were also really good and helped us get the van and car back to Dunlewey.“There was a woman, I think her name was Martha, who traveled to Dunlewey to make calls for me as there was no signal. I gave her my phone and told her which people to ring and she rang my mother-in-law and my husband’s cousin in Carrickfinn and she came back with my phone. That was awesome, she just helped no questions asked. “It was just a real showing of basic human kindness and that’s how incredible people can be.“There were loads of people who stopped, I wasn’t fully aware but I had about five or six women checking if I was okay, and men were helping Phil. It’s still hazy. Everyone came to the rescue so fast.“We were amazed, it gives you faith in humanity with all the bad stuff happening around the world,” she said.Belfast couple say heartfelt thanks to locals who helped after car crash was last modified: September 8th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:Belfastcrashdonegalgood newsHelplast_img read more

Trails need fixing after storms, fires

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBasketball roundup: Sierra Canyon, Birmingham set to face off in tournament quarterfinals“We also have mountain bikers who go out too soon – I can’t blame them, they’ve been cooped up and want to go outside – but that creates divots in the trail that are hazardous.” Langhans sees the day as a chance for relationship building as well as park renovation. “This can be fun. I see people laughing and enjoying the camaraderie,” she said. “This is also a good opportunity for parents to teach their children how to be a part of the community. By giving them a chance to do labor that is valued, it builds them up. “Trails are multigenerational and multicultural. Native Americans walked along these trails hundreds of years ago; the padres walked along the trails, as did the oil explorers, who built roads along the trails to get to the fields. “Now we use the trails for recreation or health concerns and by repairing them, we’re preparing for the future, for people we don’t even know to use them. It’s a good thing to do.” NEWHALL – After Mother Nature burned and flooded Towsley and Placerita canyons and thousands of hikers have taken their toll on the winding paths, the trails are in serious need of some TLC. June 3, as part of National Trails Day, both nature parks are hosting volunteer trail-mending events to make each location more accessible to hikers and families looking to get in touch with nature. At the main gate of Towsley Canyon, volunteers will meet at 8:30 a.m. for a day of working on trails. At Placerita Canyon, visitors can check in at 10 a.m. at the nature center for a volunteer orientation. “During the winter rains, we have the problem of water running down the center of the trails and we have to create little earthen barriers to divert the water,” said Wendy Langhans, outreach and special projects coordinator for the Mountains Recreation and Conservancy Authority, which administers Towsley Canyon. Towsley Canyon Park is still closed to drive-in traffic because of January 2005 storms that washed out the culvert near the nature center. A temporary vehicle crossing has been installed strictly for emergency and park vehicles; a permanent replacement bridge is in the works. At Placerita, three miles of the park’s 12 miles of trails are planned for renewal. Volunteer orientation will be held at 10 a.m.; workers can sign up to work just June 3, become docents or trail maintenance workers for a longer commitment. Workers at Towsley will be directed to specific sites that need attention. At The Narrows, deep into the canyon, volunteers will move rocks and spread dirt to define a level trail. On the Wiley Canyon Trailhead, volunteers will fill in gullies created by runoff, level and outslope tread and cut down weeds that have grown over the trails. If enough workers turn out, four mile-marker posts are ready to be installed at the one-, two-, three- and four-mile points. For the workers at Towsley Canyon, water and snacks will be provided but they should bring their own lunches. They should also wear closed-toe shoes and bring a hat and sunscreen. Organized groups are welcome, but all members of the group must submit a pre-registration form by May 28. Forms are available at or by calling (310) 858-7272, Ext. 115. Volunteers are welcome on the day of the event; all volunteers under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian, who must also sign their registration forms. A limited number of hand tools will be available at Towsley Canyon the day of the event. At Placerita Canyon, or for last-minute arrivals at Towsley, volunteers are encouraged to bring their own tools. Towsley Canyon Park is at 24255 The Old Road in Newhall. Take the Calgrove Boulevard exit from the Golden State Freeway; turn west, curving into The Old Road south. Parking is a half-mile from the park entrance. Placerita Canyon Natural Area and Nature Center is at 19152 Placerita Canyon Road in Newhall, one mile south of the Antelope Valley Freeway.

first_imgSenator: Fighting allegations against himTHE COUNCIL expenses ‘mole’ behind a series of leaks about the expenses of Donegal county councillors has made new allegations.However it’s understood a number of ‘error’s in the allegations have led to the new claims to be dismissed.A number of councillors have had to fend off allegations – in at least one case, the allegations were completely bogus. In several others, it’s understood there are ‘valid explanations’ about what happened.For example, one councillor received payments for events on the same day – but we understand that those payments are made automatically and were not ‘claimed’.The most high profile target of the mole, Senator Brian O Domhnaill, is currently fighting allegations against him.The Fianna Fáil Senator has been granted leave to apply for a judicial review regarding an investigation by the Standards in Public Office Commission into expenses claims he made while a member of Donegal County Council. The investigation is focusing on travel and subsistence claims made by Mr Ó Domhnaill during 2006 and 2007.The commission was due to begin a public sitting of the investigation last week but this was postponed.The leave for judicial review is based on a request from Mr Ó Domhnaill that the investigation be carried out in Irish and that documents relating to the investigation be made available to him in Irish.He says his constitutional rights would be infringed if this occurs.Mr Ó Domhnaill is also refusing to accept documents provided to him by the commission that he says are based on “anonymous allegations”. He also strenuously denies the allegations.No-one knows the identity of the mole behind all the claims; he or she has sent all his/her allegations anonymously.Comments on this story are closed because of ongoing legal cases.COUNCIL EXPENSES MOLE MAKES NEW ALLEGATIONS was last modified: June 16th, 2013 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more

Volleyball Stumbles In A 3-0 Loss To Valparaiso

first_imgTaylor Graboski led Valparaiso (12-10, 4-5 MVC) with 12 kills on 20 attempts while Katherine Carlson added 12 kills. Libero Rylee Cookerly recorded 18 digs for a Valpo team that had 69 digs in three sets. The Crusaders came into the match leading the nation in digs per set. Box Score (PDF) Story Links DES MOINES, Iowa — The Drake University volleyball team suffered just its third Missouri Valley Conference loss of the season with a 3-0 loss to Valparaiso Saturday, Oct. 20, at the Knapp Center. “Tonight was definitely a rough night for our team, but a lot of credit to Valparaiso,” said Drake head coach Darrin McBroom. “We beat them at their place and they definitely came in on a mission to even that score. We got off to slow start and when you do that, it’s hard to get traction. We never found rhythm tonight.” Full Schedule Roster The Crusaders hit a season-best .295 in the win to avenge an earlier 3-0 loss to the Bulldogs in September. Valparaiso defeated Drake in the 3-0 sweep by set scores of 25-12, 25-22 and 25-15. Loyola University Chicago 10/21/2017 – 7 p.m. “Natalie had a good night, and we passed well,” McBroom said. “But offensively we couldn’t terminate and defensively we couldn’t slow them down.” Next Game:center_img The Valley on ESPN3 In the first set, the score was tied early before the Crusaders answered with an 8-0 run that was part of a larger 13-2 run to close the set for the 25-12 win. The Bulldogs bounced back and held the lead well into the second set 18-12, but the Crusaders pushed back and had another big run, this one a 13-4 spurt, to take the set, 25-22. Play in the third set was similar to the first two sets with the teams playing close early until another big Valpo run of 10-2 gave the Crusaders plenty of cushion to cruise to the 25-15 and take the match, 3-0. Box Score (HTML) Preview Buy Tickets Live Stats “In the Missouri Valley Conference, there is no easy match,” McBroom said. “This is a key learning point for our team. We keep saying our team is young and we start four freshmen. As a team, we’ve always been the underdog, but now we’ve beaten seven MVC teams and we need to learn how to play with a target on our back and meet that challenge.” Watch Live Drake (18-6, 7-3 MVC) was led by freshman Natalie Fry (Allen, Texas) and senior Kyla Inderski (Urbandale, Iowa) with nine and eight kills, respectively. Fry’s nine kills came on 17 attempts with just one error. Freshman Kylee Macke (Ankeny, Iowa) also contributed with 14 digs while sophomore Paige Aspinwall (Dayton, Minn.) had a 22-assist, 12-dig double-double.
