Dikko Hails Enyimba’s Never-Say-Die Attitude

first_imgThe League Management Company (LMC) has lauded Enyimba’s qualification for the CAF Champions’ League group stage after beating Etoile du Sahel to the ticket on Wednesday at the Olympic Stadium in Sousse.Chairman of the LMC, Shehu Dikko in a social media post congratulated Enyimba for their show of bravery throughout the encounter while urging Nigerians to take a cue from the People’s Elephant who showed the Nigerian spirits even when many had written them off after the 90 minutes.“Enyimba have shown the Nigerian spirit today after they qualified at the expense of Etoile du Sahel. Even though they were three goals down but they never collapsed or gave up,” writes Dikko. “They could have scored the away goal at the 86th minute to win the match but they couldn’t convert the chance that came their way. Even though they were two goals down from the first two penalties in the penalty shootout still they never gave up and they clawed their way back.“They were presented with the opportunity to close up the tie with a penalty conversion in their sixth penalty to win and they lost it but they never surrendered and they got the result by the seventh penalty to win the match.“There is no better way to demonstrate the Nigerian spirit and this is how we use to know Nigerian teams. Enyimba have been able to revive our zeal and commitment to our fatherland. I want to congratulate Enyimba and to all lovers of Nigerian football. May this be the beginning of the turnaround to our international football performances.Enyimba have thus become the first Nigerian club after Sunshine Stars in 2012 to qualify for the CAF Champions’ League group stage and they are joined in the last eight by Entete Setif (Algeria), AS Vita Club (D R Congo), Al Ahly (Egypt), Zamalek (Egypt), ASEC Mimosas (Cote d’ Ivoire), Zesco United (Zambia) and Wydad Club (Morocco).Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Yes, again: Dodgers blow lead in eighth, lose in ninth on homer off Kenley Jansen

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Wednesday was another one of those nights.“Over the past couple weeks, there’s been a few signs of us coming out of it. But it’s been a few players,” Roberts said. “Collectively, we just haven’t done it. So it’s all of us. But again, we have no other alternative but to move forward. That’s our only option.”Cardinals rookie right-hander Jack Flaherty held the Dodgers hitless into the sixth inning when Joc Pederson launched a solo home run.That was half of the Dodgers’ hit total for the night. But it was enough to give the Dodgers the lead thanks to seven scoreless innings from their rookie starter Walker Buehler.That has been a precarious situation for the Dodgers recently.Scott Alexander gave it up this time, serving up a game-tying solo home run to pinch-hitter Tyler O’Neill in the top of the eighth. It was the first home run allowed by Alexander since June and only the third all season.But in the nightmare swirl of walk-off balks and blown leads the past two weeks, it almost felt predictable.So too was the wasted opportunity in the bottom of the eighth. The Dodgers loaded the bases on a single, an error and a walk, bringing Machado to the plate with yet another chance to put a gold star on his time with the Dodgers. He got ahead in the count 2-and-0 against Cardinals reliever Dakota Hudson but wound up taking a weak swing on a 2-and-2 pitch and grounding out.Related Articles How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Jansen was at the hospital early Wednesday morning with his wife as she gave birth to a son, Kyrian Jeremiah. It was his turn to labor in the ninth.Jedd Gyorko got on with a broken-bat single. But Jansen got ahead 0-and-2 on DeJong. That’s when he left a 94-mph fastball up over the heart of the plate and DeJong sent it into the left-field pavilion for the decisive swing.“The pitch was up to DeJong,” Jansen said. “I tried to get it up and away but it was more up and middle and he got me.”For 10 days while Jansen was treated for atrial fibrillation, the Dodgers played rope-a-dope, absorbing the nightly blows and counting on things being right when Jansen returned. But twice in the three-game series Jansen entered a tie game in the ninth and took the loss. He gave up back-to-back home runs in the ninth inning Monday night.Dodgers relievers have now given up 62 home runs this season. Only the New York Mets have allowed more among NL teams.“For me, it’s not rust. I think it’s just execution,” Roberts said. “Kenley’s going out there and giving us everything he has. Right now, it’s just not working out.” Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco center_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start PreviousDodgers Chase Utley, #26, gets a hug from his boys before the start of the game against the Cardinals at Dodger Stadium Wednesday, Aug. 22, 2018.

The 3-1 loss to the St. Louis Cardinals is the 10th time in the past 13 games the Dodgers surrendered a lead or lost a tie game in the seventh inning or later and the seventh time in that stretch they lost in the opposing team’s last at-bat.“It sucks losing,” Jansen said. “It sucks going 4½ back. It sucks being in third place. But you’ve just got to be a man and deal with it. Step up Friday. We all need to step up.” The loss completed a three-game sweep for the surging Cardinals and did indeed drop the Dodgers 4½ games out in the National League West, their largest deficit since late May – what the Dodgers thought would be their darkest hour this season.Sign up for our Inside the Dodgers newsletter.

Keep grinding. Put some runs on the board. Prevent runs.“Pressure – however you want to frame it – it really doesn’t matter. Who we play, where we play – we’ve put ourselves in a position where our margin is getting smaller. It’s not about blaming anybody. It’s about coming together as a team and winning a baseball game and then another one and another one.”Blame-worthy as the Dodgers’ bullpen has been, they have co-conspirators in the balky offense.Despite the decision to bolster the lineup at the trade deadline (adding Manny Machado and Brian Dozier) rather than addressing the bullpen’s deficiencies, the offense has run hot and cold, disappearing for long stretches and putting the team’s relievers on a tightrope every night.

UCF Announces Lazy River Next to Stadium, As Team Drops Game to Pitt

first_imgA slow start, combined with penalties and mistakes, sealed Number 15 UCF’s fate for the game. Pittsburgh quarterback Kenny Pickett caught a 3-yard touchdown pass during a trick play called the “Pitt Special,” with just 56 seconds left in the game, causing UCF to drop the game to the Panthers (2-2), 35-34. UCF is now 3-1 on the season. The University of Central Florida is planning to take tailgating to a new level in time for next year’s football season, with the introduction of a lazy river to be located outside the school’s stadium.Officials say they will be offering 250 memberships to what will be called McNamara Cove for $2,500 each. The all-inclusive package will cover “covegating” leading up to all regular-season home games.Guests will be able to enjoy the lazy river, in addition to a pool, sand volleyball courts, lounge chairs, a bocce ball green, and a service cabana.Outside of game days, McNamara Cove will be open to student-athletes, as part of the university’s $30 million Kenneth G. Dixon Athletics Village.The lazy river is named for Tom and Stacey McNamara, who made a naming gift commitment of $1 million last year.Meanwhile, the national champion UCF Knights’ winning streak came to an end on Saturday against Pittsburgh.last_img read more

Gemma beats Ôhorrendous’ weather to retain title

first_img30 Mar 2015 Gemma beats Ôhorrendous’ weather to retain title England international Gemma Clews beat both the field and atrocious weather to retain her title in the Delamere Comboy Scratch. She scored two-over par 75 around her home course of Delamere Forest in Cheshire, to win by a stroke in what were described as “the most horrendous conditions imaginable.” The scratch event, which was started last year, should be played over 36 holes but organiser Jackie Hesketh recounted how the competition was reduced to 18 holes after two failed attempts to start the first round. “We eventually managed to get them out at the third attempt, after making it a one-round competition.” she said. “Shortly after they had all started and the rain had stopped, the wind speed got up to 40mph, the balls were moving on the greens and the gazebo for the starter on the first tee took off and landed halfway down the first fairway! “The Delamere members did a wonderful job in clearing rain from a few greens and all the competitors appreciated the effort that everyone went to and thoroughly enjoyed the course.” Clews (Image © Leaderboard Photography), who is a member of the England Golf women’s squad, was one shot clear of regional squad player Billie-Jo Smith of Lincolnshire and Surrey’s Iona Stephen.

Urban Forestry Restoration Project: Helping our Trees Help Us

first_imgFacebook2Tweet0Pin0Submitted by The City of LaceyThe Urban Forestry Restoration Project, administered by the Washington State Dept. of Natural Resources (DNR) Urban and Community Forestry Program, is an exciting opportunity to enhance the capacity of urban forests to manage storm water and improve air and water quality by improving the health and functionality of trees and forested sites in urban settings. Even more exciting is our opportunity to participate in this program here in Lacey at Lake Lois Habitat Reserve.A Puget SoundCorps team will work with City staff to remove the English ivy, Himalayan blackberry, Spurge Laurel, Scotch Broom and Robert’s Geranium from Lake Lois Habitat Reserve during the month of December. These invasive non-native plants prevent forested areas from providing our community the full benefits and services of healthy forests by competing for water and nutrients, and in some cases even killing trees. Many undesirable plants that grow in dense thickets also harbor rats and other vermin, creating a public safety hazard as well. Once the unwelcome plants are gone, native vegetation will be planted in its place.The Lacey Board of Park Commissioners approved the Forest Management Plan for Lake Lois Park and Lake Lois Habitat Reserve in September of 2012. Volunteers have been removing invasive plants and re-planting those areas with native trees to implement the recommendations in the plan.  Paul Royer, Chair of the Park Board states, “Many people are not aware of Lake Lois Habitat Reserve, but once they have been out to volunteer, they realize the importance of what they are doing and the difference it makes in the health of the forest.”To learn more about future volunteer opportunities, contact the Lacey Parks and Recreation Dept. at (360) 491-0857, or Lacey’s official website at www.ci.lacey.wa.us.For more information about the Urban Forestry Restoration Project, visit the Project online or contact Micki McNaughton at (360) 902-1637 or micki.mcnaughton@dnr.wa.gov. DNR’s Urban and Community Forestry Program is made possible through a partnership with the USDA Forest Service. Puget SoundCorps is part of the broader Washington Conservation Corps program administered by Washington Dept. of Ecology. Puget SoundCorps crews work on projects that help restore and protect water quality in Puget Sound. The Washington Conservation Corps is supported through grant funding and Education Awards provided by AmeriCorps.last_img read more
