Caseys show tenacity is defense of their SCT crown

first_imgBY DOUG McKENZIE Staff Writer Sometimes, being a champion is not all about how you good you can be. Sometimes, it’s more about whether you can be good enough when you’re not at your best. The Red Bank Catholic girls soccer team was good enough in the semifinals of the Shore Conference Tournament (SCT), posting a hardfought 1-0 win over a pesky Holmdel team, before coming out firing on all cylinders in the final against Jackson, and cruising to a 3-1 win and their second consecutive SCT title. For the undefeated and top-ranked Caseys, this was a well-earned championship, though it was also a revealing one. Holmdel likely did the Caseys a favor by playing them so tough for the third time this year. After scoring a pair of onegoal wins (3-2 and 2-1) over Holmdel during the regular season, RBC had to know that despite being seeded 13th in the SCT, the Hornets were not going to go quietly in their semifinal match-up on Oct. 28. However, whether they expected it or not, the Caseys were not matching Holmdel’s level of play early on. The Hornets (11-6-1) had the better of the play in the first half, but were unable to capitalize with a lead. They came close in the ninth minute, but an Angela Pento shot on a direct kick from about 30 yards out went wide left. The teams entered the break deadlocked at 0-0, before RBC began to assert itself in the second half. The Caseys finally broke the tie in the second half. Devin Griffin notched the game winner in the 45th minute, off an assist from Christina Stern. After Stern dropped a soft pass into the heart of the 18-yard box, Griffin beat her defender to the spot, corralled the ball, and blasted a shot inside the right post for her fifth (and biggest) goal of the season. Following the win over Holmdel, the Caseys set their sights on a second straight title, knowing full well that they would need to come out firing against a third-seeded Jackson team that featured one of the most explosive players in the state in Dana Costello. They also knew that they would need to play without starting right back Elle Mahon, who suffered torn knee cartilage in the win over Holmdel. On Saturday night, RBC left little doubt that they had learned from their slow start against Holmdel and were up for the challenge of facing Jackson. The Caseys got three first-half goals en route to a 3-1 win over the Jaguars, cruising to the title in what head coach Ken Santos called “the best 80 minutes we’ve put together.” Following the Holmdel game, Santos spent the next couple of days reminding his team that if they put together a full game against Jackson, they would be celebrating come Saturday night. And the Caseys responded, jumping out to a 1-0 lead at 7:13 when Noelle Arcomano floated the ball into the corner of the net from the right side. Jackson goalie Sydney Lavan seemed to have a beat on the shot, but once the wind got a hold of the ball, sailed just under the crossbar. Danielle Colaprico then notched the game-winner in the 27th minute, off a nice setup from Griffin and Annie Gray. Jackson, meanwhile, had a goal disallowed due to an offside call earlier in the half, struggled to get anything going, getting outshot 13-1 in the first half. With sophomore Bri Reed stepping in to shadow Costello, RBC held the prolific scorer in check. Jackson did manage to get within one, scoring in the 34th minute, but RBC then padded the lead just three minutes later, when Kelly Dolan scored on a rebound of a Colaprico shot. As it turned out, the Caseys didn’t need that goal, as they held the Jaguars in check the rest of the way to secure the title. RBC will now prepare for the NJSIAA Non-Public South A tournament, which is scheduled to begin on this week. Among the other local teams that will be in action this week in the state tournament are the Ocean, Red Bank and Rumson-Fair Haven girls soccer team. Ocean (12-3-2), the Class B North champions, and Red Bank (9-6-1) both qualified for the Central Jersey Group III tournament, while RFH (12-5-0) the Class B Central public school champs, will vie for the CJ Group II title. On the boy’s side of play, Shore Regional (12-5-2) will be chasing a CJ Group II title, along with their Class B Central rivals from RFH (10-6-1). Monmouth Regional (10- 8) also qualified for the state tournament, and will open play in the CJ Group III tournament this week.last_img read more

Fire victims to finally get new home from Beharry Build Partnership

first_imgSherry Bacchus and Imran Khan are soon to become official new home owners through the Beharry Build Partnership.The family has been through their fair share of challenges, having lost their home to fire in 2014, leaving them and their three children, one of whom is physically challenged, homeless. After losing their home, the family went through many hardships, including having to live in a dog kennel, finding a place to rent and dealing with an unscrupulous landlord, leaving the family with the only option of occupying the chicken coop, the only surviving structure on the land.When it seemed things could not get worse, heavy rains caused the area to flood, wetting their mattresses as they slept on the ground and the family was forced to seek refuge from a kind stranger until the water subsided.The couple then became aware of the work of Habitat for Humanity Guyana Inc. (HFHGI) through the Enterprise Youth Development Group, whose chairperson is Samantha Persaud, and made contact with the entity in the hope of gaining assistance to build a new home.Upon contact, representatives from the “A Dollar makes a Difference” partnership between Edward B. Beharry & Company Ltd (EBB) and Habitat for Humanity, came to verify the family’s claims and shortlisted them for the building of a new home under the second phase of the campaign.The Beharry Build Partnership called “A Dollar makes a Difference” between Habitat for Humanity Guyana Inc and Edward B. Beharry and Company Limited has been actively committed, since 2014, to provide low income families, who would not be able to secure a commercial mortgage, with homes.This partnership between a non-profit and a for profit organisation is the only one in Guyana which mobilises funds from the general public to help support a social cause. This is made possible as the EBB takes one dollar off every unit of item sold and donates it to the Habitat for Humanity Guyana.Since the projects commencement in 2014, eleven families have benefited from various housing needs ranging from new homes, sanitary blocks, home repairs, and improvements.To date the partnership has generated over $17,000,000, raising awareness of the role housing plays in poverty reduction and strengthening livelihoods, while encouraging commercial entities or individuals to join as partners and improve the lives of families across Guyana.Through the “A Dollar makes a Difference” partnership, this family will be receiving a two-bedroom concrete home, with three mattresses donated from Comfort Sleep and other household items from anonymous donors.The Beharry/Habitat partnership is characterised by the organisation’s corporate responsibility in an atmosphere of collaboration to further the prospects of Guyanese families’ recognising the joyfulness of owning their own home and improving their livelihood.The official handing over ceremony will take place on November 1 at the couple’s residence at 68 Nonpareil, East Coast Demerara.last_img read more

England through as France falter

first_imgFrance were woeful as they saw their 23 match unbeaten run under Laurent Blanc brought to an end with a stunning bicycle kick by Zlatan Ibrahimovic and one from the outstanding Sebastian Larsson.Victory gave the Swedes their first win over the French in almost 43 years, dating back to October 1969.England’s win sees them avoid defending champions Spain and instead they will play Italy in their quarter-final in Kiev on Sunday while it is the French who will face the Spanish in Donetsk on Saturday.A 48th-minute header from the talismanic Rooney gave the English some breathing space over a Ukrainian side – shorn of its own talisman Andrei Shevchencko, who was unable to start as he was injured – that had to win to go through.They thought they had at least got back on level terms when Marko Devic had a clear goal wrongly disallowed on 62 minutes.Devic had powered into the box and his looping shot had flown over keeper Joe Hart towards goal.John Terry launched himself into an acrobatic clearance to hook the ball away but despite furious Ukrainian appeals no goal was given.Television replays, however, showed the ball had crossed the line by several inches but had incredibly been missed by the additional assistant referee stationed behind the goal.“We had our bit of luck tonight (the goal that wasn’t allowed) but you deserve some luck,” mused England coach Roy Hodgson, who is yet to be beaten in five games since he took over.However, Hodgson said that his relatively inexperienced team, shorn of several key players through injury before the tournament, had shown great character to prevail.“It was a very good defensive and disciplined performance,” he said.“We could have shown some more composure on the ball but we are a fledgling team and we can work on that part.”France rarely looked like they were up for the battle and Sweden were the side that looked to be the one who had a chance of reaching the quarter-finals rather than taking an early flight home.The defeat left Blanc seething, questioning the commitment of his players and clearly hinting that changes would be made for the clash with Spain.“Sweden played this match with its heart. Physically, they were better prepared and (in Ibrahimovic) they had a player in the team who made the difference, which makes a hell of a difference.“We are really disappointed by this result but we were in trouble throughout the match. When you lose a match, it is because you have not got the right team out there.“Therefore, if I were to start it all over, we would not start with the same team.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000KIEV, Ukraine 20th June – England rode their luck to top Euro 2012 Group D as they beat co-hosts Ukraine 1-0 while France also made it despite being outclassed in a 2-0 defeat by already eliminated Sweden.A goal by the recalled Wayne Rooney – thanks to a howler by the Ukrainian goalkeeper – was enough for England although Ukraine were desperately unlucky not to be level when the ball clearly crossed the line but the fifth official didn’t see it.last_img read more

Nolito hails Manchester City teammate Sergio Aguero as one of world’s best

first_imgNolito is honoured to be playing alongside the prolific Sergio Aguero at Manchester City.Spain forward Nolito has made a fine start to his City career, scoring his second and third goals for the club in Saturday’s comfortable 4-1 Premier League win at Stoke.But it was still not enough to command the headlines as Aguero continued his flying start to the campaign with another double to take his tally to six in three games.“Aguero is one of the best players in the world and I’m very proud to work and play with him,” Nolito said. “I hope he keeps scoring to help us this season.“I feel very good here. It’s only been three games and I’m still settling in, but I feel fit and I just want to keep working with the team.“I’m really happy with both of my goals, and happy to score them because it was our first away game, but it was more important to get the three points.”City supporters at the bet365 Stadium chanted their support for goalkeeper Joe Hart and playmaker Yaya Toure, who were again both omitted by boss Pep Guardiola.But they were even more vocal in their appreciation of Guardiola, whose development of the team is gathering momentum.Following on from their impressive win at Steaua Bucharest in midweek, City were at their most fluid in the first half, with the rejuvenated Raheem Sterling again impressing.The lead came in the 27th minute as Aguero, not perturbed after two misses in Romania, stood up to take a penalty after Nicolas Otamendi was held back by Ryan Shawcross. He headed a second after 36 minutes.Stoke were denied a penalty before the break after Aleksandar Kolarov felled Joe Allen but did get one early in the second half when Sterling was adjudged to have impeded Shawcross by referee Mike Dean.Both of the penalties given underlined a new determination to clamp down on pushing and holding at set-pieces this season, but while there was no doubting contact for the Otamendi spot-kick, the second award seemed harsh.Bojan converted and Stoke went on to have a good spell, but ultimately they could not take advantage of a dip in City’s intensity. Substitute Nolito eventually wrapped up victory, with the 29-year-old netting two goals in the last four minutes.Nolito said: “I was lucky to come on as a substitute. I did well. I won’t always start because of the other guys in the squad but the most important thing is we all worked together in the same direction and in the end we had a good win.”The result left Stoke still waiting for their first win of the new campaign but manager Mark Hughes saw reasons for optimism.“I don’t think the scoreline was a fair reflection for our efforts,” said Hughes, a former Manchester City boss.“Overall there were elements of our game I was pleased with, but other elements we need to improve on because they are the ones that cost us the game.“The scoreline was flattering for City but they are a good side, they are going to run the league title very close. We need to be better next time we face them but I am sure they will build like we will.” Sergio Aguero and Nolito celebrate a Manchester City goal 1last_img read more
