first_imgIt was an emotional night for Calabar High School’s coach, Ludlow Barker, after watching his team hold off Ardenne High to win back-to-back Under-19 ISSA National Basketball Championship titles, following a 62-52 overtime win at the G.C. Foster College auditorium on Tuesday evening.Led by a game-high 28 points from MVP Maliek McCarthy and 13 points from Jevaun Faulder, Calabar High shrugged off a fourth-quarter surge from the Basil Barrett-coached Ardenne before going on to dominate overtime 12-4.Justin Rhoden was Ardenne’s top scorer with 15 points.However, in his post-match interview, Calabar High’s coach, Barker, could not restrain the tears as emotions overwhelmed him while he piled praises on his players for their sacrifice on the road to winning back-to-back Southern Conference and national championship honours.”I know these players,” said a tearful Barker. “When they commit to do the work, they come up trumps. I believe in them; they believe in me. I just love these players. I love coaching the school because they have heart and soul.TOP COACH, PLAYERS”They (players) say they have a top coach, but I say I have top players – the greatest players in the world – and I’d never exchange them for anything,” he stated.”Winning back-to-back South Conference titles was going to be tough, but winning back-to-back all-island was going to be harder. We had to have a lot of self-discipline and play good defence.”After an evenly contested first quarter (12-12), Calabar High captured the second period 11-7 to lead 23-19 at half-time. They continued to hold the ascendancy after taking the third quarter 17-14, but in the final quarter, Ardenne upped their game a couple of notches and Calabar High could find no answer as the Basil Barrett-coached team were hitting shots from all angles and range. In the final analysis, Ardenne High won the period 15-8 to be tied 48-48 at the final whistle.However, in overtime, Ardenne did not know what hit them as Calabar High came out firing and easily captured the period 12-4 for a convincing win.”My team held its nerve when it went to overtime. They were still feeling good about themselves even though they gave up the lead,” Barker admitted. “We didn’t lose concentration. We stuck to the game plan and we supported each other, and defensively, we did an excellent job. So to repeat at this level is quite a joy.”In the junior final, St George’s College avenged their Southern Conference final defeat to St Catherine High with a 54-47 win.Jordon Gilles with 17 points and Nathan Reid (10 points) were the top scorers for St George’s. Shevran Williams was St Catherine’s top scorer with 13 points.last_img read more

At least 10 people were killed in road wrecks in Kansas, Missouri and Kentucky over two days. In Texas, a mother and son died in a fire sparked by an improperly installed wood-burning stove. In Chicago, a Southwest Airlines jet trying to land in heavy snow Thursday evening slid off a runway at Midway International Airport, crashed through a fence and skidded into a busy street. No injuries were reported on the plane, but at least one person was seriously hurt in a vehicle on the ground, an official said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREBlues bury Kings early with four first-period goals The eastbound storm system was expected to leave a half-foot of snow in central Illinois and 3 to 5 inches in the Chicago area, where by late afternoon Thursday about 30 flights had been canceled at O’Hare International and Midway airports. In Indiana, dozens of schools dismissed students early, and community groups and churches canceled events, as many cities reported 4 to 6 inches of snow by evening. The Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra promised that Thursday night’s “Yuletide Celebration” would go on, but it discounted tickets to attract stranded commuters. The heaviest snow – up to 10 inches – fell along the Interstate 35 corridor into Kansas City, said Greg Koch, a National Weather Service forecaster. Temperatures in the city fell into the single digits. The St. Louis region received 2 to 4 inches. Missouri State Highway Patrol Sgt. Larry Plunkett said all three passengers in a sport utility vehicle were killed Thursday when it crossed a median on a snow-covered interstate near Charleston and struck a tractor-trailer head-on. Also in southeast Missouri, a Greyhound bus struck the rear of a state truck that was plowing a two-lane highway near Greenville. Plunkett said seven or eight passengers were hurt, but none of the injuries was life-threatening. Numerous vehicles slipped off roads or got into fender benders, troopers said. On a snow-packed interstate near Edgerton, Kan., a 31-year-old woman’s pickup slid across the median Wednesday and collided with another vehicle, killing her and her 4-year-old daughter, authorities said. “A lot of people aren’t slowing down,” said Judy Gilchrist, a spokeswoman for the Kansas Turnpike Authority.

first_img Tags: top FIFA World Cup qualifierUganda 1-0 EgyptOkwi wheels away in celebration after scoring the priceless goal against Egypt. Shaban Lubega.FOOTBALL–An unlikely empty Namboole Stadium did little to dampen the spirit of Uganda Cranes as they made home advantage count with a priceless 1-0 win over record African champions Egypt in a Russia 2018 Fifa World Cup qualifier Thursday.Tanzania-based striker Emmanuel Okwi scored the solitary goal six minutes into the second half after the Pharaohs had failed to clear their lines following a Faruku Miya corner kick.Egypt had a goal ruled out for offside when Muhamed Salah crossed for Hassan Mohmoud who flicked the ball past the steady gloves of Africa’s top-ranked goalkeeper Denis Onyango but the Egyptian celebration was cut short with the waving flag of the assistant referee, who adjudged on-rushing Soliman Mohmoud to have interfered with play from an offside position.That half time escape would prove crucial and Uganda made the most of it later having laboured and in the opening half although they did enough to contain the much heralded Pharaohs.The only clear cut chance Uganda had in the first half came courtesy of Okwi who connected first-time on the volley with a Joseph Ochaya long pass only for legendary Egyptian goalkeeper Essam El-Hadary to parry the ball out of danger.Coming into the top of Group E clash, Egypt had not lost to Uganda since 1965 and were highly fancied to make the most of their professionals such as English based duo of Mohammed Salah of Lvierpool and El Neny of Arsenal count.But fame is one thing, Namboole is another. The Egyptian learnt this the hard way and if they had taken Uganda for granted prior, given even their late arrival for the match, they will be slapping themselves in the face and doing thorough post-mortem.The huff and puff and scoreless half time appeared to have awakened Egyptian Coach Hector Cuper out of his reverie as he realised Cranes were never to be taken for granted even after the departure of Milutin Sredojevic Micho just a month ago.Cuper, who made his name with Spanish side Valencia 16 years ago, made an immediate change at the start of the second half, throwing in Ahmed Ramadan Sohbi for the ineffective Hassan Mohmoud, but before his tactical change could sniff at the bumpy Namboole pitch, Uganda had taken the lead on 52 minutes.Egypt made a further two substitutions in the second half with Saliman Mohmoud and Terek Ahmed both coming off and replaced by Ahmed Amir and Salah Salah, respectively but could not inspire the Pharaohs to getting the elusive goal as Uganda stood firm in defence.“It was a difficult game on a poor pitch but we can go home and work on our mistakes so that we win the return leg on Tuesday.” said Egyptian coach Hector Cuper after the game.Uganda’s interim coach Moses Basena was full of praise for his players after the win.“All i can say is that am proud of the boys because we came into this game with several of them not having enough playing time but they got the result against a formidable opponent,” said Basena, who took over in interim role together with Fred Kajoba in the wake of Micho’s decision to wake out on Cranes.Basena and Kajoba were assistants to the Serbian.“We highly believe we can qualify for the world cup and today’s result will inspire us to go to Port Alexandria and fight for at least a point,” added Basena, who only last week appointed Express tactician Matia Lule and former Cranes inspirational skipper and defender Ibrahim Sekagya to his backroom staff.Uganda will now travel to Egypt for the return fixture on Tuesday before completing the campaign with games at Congo Brazzavile and Ghana (at home) in October.Egypt are now second on the log in Group E with six points, one behind leader Uganda. Congo Brazzaville, who are yet to pick a point, play Ghana away on Friday before they lock horns next week in Brazzaville.

first_imgThere are few opposing managers with such an in-depth knowledge of Donegal as Rory Gallagher.Having spent three years as assistant manager to Jim McGuinness, Gallagher had a three-year stint as Donegal’s manager, walking away in the autumn of 2017 following a heavy qualifier loss to Galway.Now managing his native Fermanagh, Gallagher will be aiming to take down a house he helped to build tomorrow. At club level, Gallagher coaches Killybegs and counts Hugh McFadden and Eoghan Ban Gallagher – two likely starters for Donegal in tomorrow’s Ulster SFC clash at Brewster Park – among his players. Living in Killybegs, Gallagher studies Donegal football with an interest matched by few others.It will count for something – but the conundrum for Gallagher and the Erne is that knowledge alone won’t win tomorrow’s game.Gallagher has named two Championship debutants in his team – Johnny Cassidy and Ultan Kelm – for a repeat of last year’s Ulster final, which was won handsomely by Donegal.Fermanagh, who will pack their defence, will attempt to take Donegal’s players to a dark place in the opening exchanges, but Donegal will be prepared for that onslaught. “It’s a local derby and we know it’s going to be difficult going into Brewster Park and we have to be ready for that challenge,” Declan Bonner, the Donegal manager, said this week.“That’s what we have been gearing towards for the last six to eight weeks.“Yeah we know how Fermanagh are going to set up, and it’s up to us as a team to work our way through that.“They are also capable of hurting on the counter-attack, and we have to be ready for that.”Gallagher would likely have a fair stab at guessing Bonner’s selection for tomorrow, but the Donegal boss appears to have more aces to play. Not least the return of Patrick McBrearty for what will be the Kilcar man’s first appearance for the county since the 2018 final, when he sustained a cruciate knee ligament injury.Donegal are expected to have Neil McGee in to curb the advances of Sean Quigley and with the likes of Stephen McMenamin, Paddy McGrath and Frank McGlynn tipped to be in the rearguard, there is plenty of steel and experience.McFadden and Jason McGee are the likely men to get the nod at midfield, while Bonner has plenty of options in a forward line that will have Michael Murphy at its fulcrum.Gallagher said of the Donegal captain: “Michael’s greatest strength is that I’m quite confident he would cut his father’s throat to win a game of football. I seen him in training cut boys in two to win a game of football. I’m on one side now and he is on the other and that’s the way it is. “Michael’s return is immeasurable. I think never have Donegal relied on him as much as now and they have said that plenty of time over the last five years in particular. Since the slowing down of the likes Colm McFadden, Christy Toye, Neil Gallagher, Rory Kavanagh, Karl Lacey’s careers but I think he is key to it.But, I would also say to that he is delighted to be playing in a re-energised forward line.”While Gallagher talks of the Glenswilly man as ‘a player that we are going to have to make sure has a fairly quiet influence’, it is certainly easier said than done.When Fermanagh beat Donegal this year in the League – their first League win in 40 years against Donegal – Neil McGee and Murphy were among those with a watching brief, Donegal electing to leave Murphy, who did a lengthy warm-up, in reserve.Tomorrow, Murphy will be firmly in the firing line, while the likes of Michael Langan, Ciaran Thompson and Jamie Brennan have all had promising League outings, with injury expected to rule teenager Oisin Gallen out of what would have been a first Ulster SFC appearance.Fermanagh had a solid League campaign and were perhaps unfortunate not to be in the final mix for promotion. Bonner believes his men got a ‘reminder’ in the defeat at O’Donnell Park in February.Bonner knows all about Gallagher and Fermanagh. It’s 19 years now since a cheeky Gallagher goal gave Fermanagh a first Ulster SFC win over Donegal since 1934. That defeat in 2000 brought the curtain down on Bonner’s first spell as the Donegal manager. Little did he think, he’d be back again for a second calling.Last year, Donegal were a whisker from an All-Ireland semi-final and Bonner is keen to take the front door route to the Super 8s./He said: “There’s no doubt that the best way to go is by winning your province and getting straight into it.“That’s what we will be aiming for. It’s not going to be easy, and it’s very difficult to go back-to-back, and we haven’t even looked past the first round on Sunday week, and that’s where our energy has been geared towards over the last eight weeks.”It will surely be a source of frustration for Gallagher that, however much his side shake, Fermanagh seem unlikely to be in a position to topple Donegal’s structure with minimal attacking power by comparison. The frustration is heightened since it was he who helped lay the solid foundations on which they’re now built.Verdict: Anything other than a Donegal win would be a major upset. Donegal to pull clear and advance.

first_imgThe equipment to set-up the cinema is portable and can be taken anywhere. (Image: The Sunshine Cinema)Using solar energy for power, the Sunshine Cinema screens short films of uplifting and useful content, targeting youth and rural communities, to promote self-empowerment by sharing practical ways to improve life.Sunshine Cinema produces a range of “how to” videos and facilitates workshops, as well as makes narrative-based short films that address social issues.Sydelle Willow Smith, the co-founder of Sunshine Cinema, told Redbull Amaphiko, “a collaborative platform for social entrepreneurs who want to change their corner of the world”: “We’re a collaboration between the skills development collective, The Shift, and the documentary filmmakers, Makhulu.”The group chose to use solar power, she said, because as filmmakers and design innovators they had worked in a variety of environments where electricity was not prevalent, and because renewable is sustainable. “We use solar power because we’re passionate about sustainable forms of energy.”RURAL AND DISENFRANCHISED BENEFITThe filmmakers decided to take their productions to the rural and disenfranchised people who were marginalised and did not get the opportunity to view their work.“As filmmakers from privileged backgrounds,” Smith said, “we felt we were often making films in areas where the people we were filming wouldn’t get a chance to see the work. This was problematic so we wanted to find ways to bring films to communities across the digital divide.“We screen community-tailored documentary content in the hope of promoting skills development, dialogues and enabling communities to become their own ‘engines of development.’”The screenings differ but in general they start with warm-up games to connect with the audience, before the viewers are shown the solar-powered cinema kit. “We then screen a selection of short films, including documentaries and our DIY tutorial clips for the day.”RECEPTION OF FILMSAnd the movies are well-received. “[The reception is] fantastic, everyone loves a cinema,” said Smith. “In the last two years we’ve visited diverse communities, youth, farmworkers and rural women’s groups, and all have responded well. We ran a record-breaking crowd-funding campaign on Thundafund and we’ve been featured on local and international media platforms.”Smith singles out the screening workshop in the township of Langa, in Cape Town. “One of the most impactful screening workshops we’ve hosted was in Langa, where we showed a video on how to make seats out of discarded tyres. It was a fantastic experience.“After our tyre seat workshop we screened a local animation film called Khumba. This meant the kids could roll their seats into the makeshift cinema we had created and watch their favourite cartoon.”CHALLENGES AND PLANS FOR THE FUTURESunshine Cinema started as a worthy idea but snowballed into a demanding start-up enterprise, according to Smith.“This rapid growth for Sunshine Cinema has been driven by a small team, which we would love to grow so that we can scale our impact too. Accessing early stage funding is never easy, and most of Sunshine Cinema’s development to date has been funded by the founding partners.”The Sunshine Cinema team will be going on a roadshow in August. “We’re partnering with other organisations to test the reception of the cinema beyond South Africa’s borders. We’ll be travelling from Cape Town to Kenya conducting research about our approach. We’re also working on making our content easily accessible to a wider audience.”last_img read more
