President confident of players performance

first_imgAFL POM AFL president Douglas Lai is confident that a majority of his players will make it into the PNG Mosquitoes and PNG Flames teams for next year’s AFL International Cup. He said his side will retain many of the spots in the two national teams. “However, some good talent was on show at the championships by both men’s and women’s side from other centres that requires selectors attention,” said Lai. He congratulated the champions, Laurabada and runner ups Mirigini of POM AFL for bringing so much talent with great display of footy in front of the huge West New Britain crowd. Team Laurabada was unbeaten in the tournament as the team consisted of some of Port Moresby’s senior players who played in the competition. Lai said that their outstanding performance was worth the sponsorship as both teams played in the grand final. He stated that sponsorships are moral boosters for teams and supporters came at a time when they really needed it. He acknowledged NCD governor Powes Parkop and Vitis Industries for the support to the POM AFL teams to attend the championships. “I would like to say thank you to Vicky Mosin of Vitis Industries. Besides our good NCD governor, Mrs Mosin’s assistance with ticketing and funding through Zoya Travel Services was a great boost and help to the POM AFL teams.” The championship finals results include Laurabada 6.1 (37) defeated Mirigini 2.4 (16) in the mens while Kimbe 4.7 (31) defeated Lae 2.1 (13) in the womenslast_img read more

La Follette Police hit the “daily double”

first_imgThe La Follette Police Department’s Drug Unit, assigned to the Drug Task Force, started a very busy day for local law enforcement this morning in west La Follette. La Follette Police executed a search warrant at this home on 905 West Forest Street in La Follette.A search warrant was executed not long after 10:30 am on Friday morning at 905 West Forest Street.  LPD Captain Stephen Wallen  says the raid netted about a pound of pot (marijuana) and drug paraphernalia.However, information shared at that bust led to an even bigger bust a short time later a few streets over at 1012 West Central Avenue.Someone at the light colored stone home gave officers consent to enter and search the residence. Wallen describes the mid-afternoon  haul as ten plus pounds of pot that may actually be between 15 and 20 pounds.  A person in the home told police that they have a marijuana grower in California who ships the pot by way of the US Mail Service to their La Follette address.Agents assigned by the Campbell County Sheriff’s Office and Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms agencies also took part in today’s activity with the LaFollette Police Department’s Drug Unit and Special Response Team.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/06/2018-4:30PM)UPDATE:  No arrests were made in either of these busts.  However, lots of evidence was gathered as state and federal grand juries are still to come involving these cases.  (WLAF NEWS PUBLISHED – 07/07/2018-11AM) Share this:FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Werenski takes advantage of Thompson’s late stumble; 3M tied

first_img FOLLOW US COMMENT Associated Press Television News LIVE TV SUBSCRIBE TO US Richy Werenski birdied three of the last four holes Saturday to erase a four-stroke deficit and catch Michael Thompson for the 3M Open lead.After sharing the halfway lead, Thompson and Werenski traveled on vastly different paths to each shoot 3-under 68 before walking together to the clubhouse even again. They were at 15 under at the TPC Twin Cities.Charl Schwartzel shot a 66 in the third round, pulling even with Tony Finau for third place at 13 under. Max Homa posted a 64, making a big jump to fifth at 12 under.Thompson, who entered the week well below the cut for the FedEx Cup Playoffs in 151st place, made three straight birdies on the front nine. The 35-year-old, whose only career tour win was at the Honda Classic in Florida in 2013, knocked in another one on the 590-yard, par-5 12th hole to move to 16 under.Thompson held a four-stroke lead until the 15th, when his game on the greens suddenly faltered. His 8-foot putt for birdie went long, and he settled for par.Werenski, who was one spot off the FedEx Cup cut last season and came to Minnesota in 89th place, birdied the 15th hole to move up. So did their playing partner Finau, making up for three earlier bogeys.Thompson rolled a 15-footer too long on the 17th green, too, taking just his second bogey of the entire tournament as a light rain began to fall on another muggy and breezy afternoon in this suburb north of Minneapolis as the heat index reached the upper 90s.Thompson, whose best finish on this virus-interrupted tour schedule was a tie for eighth at the RBC Heritage in South Carolina, started 18th with even more trouble by hitting his drive into the drink. There were 248 balls hit into water hazards over Thursday and Friday, the most through two rounds on the PGA Tour this season.Thompson’s next try after the penalty stroke landed in the green-side bunker, but he saved par with a clutch chip out of the sand that landed 7 feet from the cup. Werenski, whose 63 in the first round is tied for the low score of the tournament, birdied that hole. That set up a Sunday duel with a handful of competitors well within striking distance.That includes Schwartzel, the 35-year-old South African who has two career tour victories. He just missed an eagle on the 18th, when his 70-foot shot from the bunker almost dropped in.“It was a slow motion lip-out,” Schwartzel said.Homa, who missed the cut on four of his last five starts, had eight birdies.“I guess it’s been, I don’t know, four or so months since I’ve been in any kind of heat other than the cut heat, so it was kind of nice to just keep doing what I was doing at the beginning of the season,” said Homa, who bogeyed the 17th.Tringale made four birdies and an eagle over his first eight holes on the way to tying his career low score with a 63, last posted in 2011. He only needed 25 putts, giving himself an outside chance for his first tour win.“Golf’s a game of confidence. I love where I’m at. I love where my game’s at,” Tringale said. “Sundays are a different day, so I’m excited about the opportunity.”Image credits: AP center_img Written By First Published: 26th July, 2020 07:09 IST Last Updated: 26th July, 2020 07:09 IST Werenski Takes Advantage Of Thompson’s Late Stumble; 3M Tied Richy Werenski birdied three of the last four holes Saturday to erase a four-stroke deficit and catch Michael Thompson for the 3M Open lead WATCH US LIVElast_img read more

“We got you” – Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims sound off after sex charges filed against mogul

first_imgPawel Kaminski/ABC(NEW YORK) –Rose McGowan and Asia Argento, two of Harvey Weinstein’s alleged victims, are sounding off about the disgraced former movie mogul being charged with three sex crimes Friday.Weinstein surrendered to New York City authorities Friday morning. Prosecutors charged him with one count each of first-degree rape, first-degree criminal sexual act, and third-degree rape.“We got you, Harvey Weinstein. We got you,” tweeted McGowan, who claimed the producer raped her more than a decade ago, then paid her off to buy her silence.“What took you so long Harvey?” tweeted Argento, with a pic of the mogul walking in the NYPD’s 1st Precinct. She also posted her comment to USA Today that read in part: “Today Harvey Weinstein will take his first step on his inevitable descent to hell. We, the women, finally have real hope for justice.”  Argento has also accused Weinstein of rape.Argento’s boyfriend, celebrity chef and Parts Unknown host Anthony Bourdain, tweeted the menu that the producer will be eating should be wind up behind bars. Safe to say it’s not the five-star fare Weinstein is used to.Gretchen Carlson, whose own harassment lawsuit against former Fox News head, the late Roger Ailes, led to his downfall, added: “Today is a day I never thought I’d see when I came forward 22 months ago alone. Thank you for listening to women.”The Time’s Up movement posted, “Harvey Weinstein shattered the lives of an untold number of women. We stand with them, and remain in solidarity with women everywhere who have faced unsafe and abusive workplaces. We look forward to seeing justice prevail.”Weinstein’s bail was set at $1 million cash or $10 million bond.  He was also ordered to be fitted with a monitoring device and surrendered his passport, with orders not to travel beyond New York state or Connecticut without the court’s permission.Weinstein’s attorney, Ben Brafman, issued a statement, reiterating that his client didn’t engage in any non-consensual sex acts, and that Mr. Weinstein, who pleaded not guilty, “fully expects to be exonerated.”Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

LVR Junior Bombers sweep past rivals

first_imgHigh School Fieldhockey is back and so are the L.V. Rogers Junior Bombers.The Junior Bombers scored a pair of wins over Stanley Humphries of Castlegar and Trail’s J. Lloyd Crowe Grade 8-9 team in action at Pass Creek Park in the Sunflower City. First up for the Bombers were the Rockers of Stanley Humphries, who are rebuilding after losing most of her seniors. “After a sluggish start the girls began to get into a rhythm and move the ball around with more success,” said Bomber coach Bruce Walgren. “The Bombers controlled much of the play en route to a 5 – 0 win on goals by Gioia Valk with a hattrick, Elle Schlegel and Zoe Baxter each with singles.”Against J. Lloyd Crowe, in a evenly played match, Walgren said the Bombers found a way to get the win through two exchange students Gioia Valk and Elle Schlegel as they combined to score four of the Bombers five goals to post a 5 – 0 win. Gioia and Elle both scored a pair and Zoe Baxter netted a single. Keeper Johanna Brochagen recorded both shutouts. “Strong defensive play by Emma Chirico, Rayne Fulgin, Marisa Price, Jessica McLeod and Skyla Short,” Walgren explained. “Very good midfield work by new comers Erica Potkins, Paris Miesner, Ariel Fulgin,  Several exchange students play for the Junior bomber squad and played very well considering they have never played before, Ruka Kato, Africa Bajils-Garoz, Siyeon Noh and Alba.”Next up for the Bombers is a Senior league contest versus Stanley Humphries Thursday at Pass Creek.last_img read more

Melbourne slam minor premiership prize

first_imgWith the Storm playing Cronulla on Sautrday and the winner set to receive the top honour after 26 rounds, Tripp says the league won’t be taken as seriously as the AFL as a consequence of the award.While the AFL doesn’t pay out for the minor premiership, it has a stepped payment system for teams as they are knocked out of the finals, with $71,000 for the first two teams eliminated with the premiers receiving $1.2 million.The NRL grand final winners receive $400,000, meaning if a team does the double it only takes home $500,000.”$100,000 is embarrassing for the amount of work that goes in over the course of a pre-season and a season,” Tripp told Fairfax Media.”The prestige of winning the minor premiership has waned quite considerably and it’s certainly not front of mind for a lot of clubs these days because the incentive isn’t there. If they want to be seen as a peer of, and on equal footing to, the AFL, there are areas (league administrators) that need to improve in order to be taken as seriously as the AFL.”I would dearly love to be able to reward the entire club for the amount of work that goes in over the course of those 26 rounds.”But we have a huge payroll that are not just players, we’ve got an administerial roster, and $100,000 doesn’t go very far.”last_img read more
