Messi’s worst streak in LaLiga in more than six years

first_imgMessi admitted some disgust gesture during the match against Getafe. Performed superclass snatch, but it costs keep more the continued efforts and ended up visibly frustrated with the development of the match. However, its involvement in the game and in the reality of the team is undisputed. The Argentine knows star, captain and leader of the group and although he is aware that the season has been complicated by the bad head of the team away from home, his injury at the start of the season and the Current of Suarez, He is still willing to win a title. For many, the most calming I have the Bernabéu party near … Then Messi takes out the antennas. But first he will touch the Eibar and especially the visit to San Paolo, Diego’s temple. Six seasons ago, Messi he was 13 consecutive days without scoring, although in five of them he did not play for one muscle tear. It means that his streak stretched up to eight days of drought. The Argentine continues to rule the Barça game and against Getafe he broke the game with a master pass to Griezmann. Carries six assists in the last three league games Definitely, Messi It has been scolded with the goal. For the first time in more than six years, the Argentine passes four days League adding unmarked. Anxiety or not, the streak began in Mestalla against the Valencia; continued against him I raised; continued in Heliopolis against the Betis; and, so far, it has extended to the match against Getafe. Messi could not with Jaume Domènech, Aitor, Joel or David Soria. Add as one thirty shots in the last games, although every day its production of pitches falls more. This Saturday was faulty in the first part. He missed a petroleum jelly attempt that he normally runs with mastery and then met Soria after a Griezmann center. As well the tried direct foul unlucky. In the second part it barely appeared, which increases the whir about that muscular fatigue on the left leg with which he is playing and from which all are so outstanding ten days after the game of Naples and ten of the visit to the Bernabéu in the Classic.center_img But it is evident that Messi sees no door. It has not been only the four days of the League. Also that Cup match against Athletic in which he had the qualification for semifinals but ran into Unai Simon, that frustrated a seemingly good definition of the Golden Ball six times. And another significant fact. For Messi, who has llegacy to score 50 goals in the same edition of LaLiga, it is not normal in recent years to have marked only fourteen in the day 24. He is LaLiga’s ‘poorest’ top scorer since the 2001-02 season, when Kluivert, Catanha and Raul were eleven.last_img read more

GC Foster, Sprintec make mark

first_imgOVER the years, the Stephen and Paul Francis-coached MVP Track Club and the University of Technology (UTech) have dominated action at the Milo Western Relays.However, at last Saturdays staging of the event, both teams had to play second fiddle to the Maurice Wilson-coached G.C. Foster College and Sprintec teams, which both accounted for the majority of wins in individual and relay events.”I was very pleased with the performances of both the college and club teams, and I think we are on target, especially among the college athletes, to do very well for the remainder of the season, although it is still early days. But we do have a very vibrant team that has been very supportive in the form of Dr Joyce Royal, Paul Beckford, Marvin Gayle, Alf Remekie, and other members who have been helping so far,” said Wilson, who is also a senior lecturer at G.C. Foster College and technical leader of Jamaica’s track and field team.In individual events, there were wins for G.C. Foster College’s Ronda Whyte, AndrÈ Clarke, Nascieve Powell, and Sprintec’s Oshane Bailey.RECORD BOOKSWhyte and Clarke, who were members of Jamaica’s team to the World University Games last summer in Gwangju, Korea, wrote their names in the record books.Whyte won the women’s 400 metres hurdles in 58.24 seconds to erase former Edwin Allen High athlete Sherone Pinnock’s 2006 record of 59.30.Clarke, who fractured his right shoulder in practice a few days before the start of his event in Korea and could not participate, won the men’s 400m hurdles in 51.25, erasing the 2014 record of former St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) standout Okeem Williams of 52.34.Bailey captured the men’s 100m in 10.32 seconds, finishing ahead of the G.C.

Calabar and Edwin again

first_img DOUBLE WINNER Meanwhile, Cemore Donald was a double winner, adding the Class Two girls 800m title to the 1,500m title she won on Friday. The Edwin Allen athlete posted 2:08.01 to win ahead of Petersfield’s Shaquena Foote, 2:09.39, and Hydel’s Charokee Young, 2:17.28. Earlier, Excelsior High School’s Ackera Nugent’s frustration was palpable as she was beaten in the Class Three girls 80m hurdles by a fast-finishing Crystal Morrison of St Jago. Rayon Butler pulled off a coup on his St Elizabeth Technical High School teammate, Jauavney James, in a tight finish to win the Class One boys 800m final. The highly favoured James showed it was all love, hugging his teammate after the race, which Butler won in 1:50.24 to James’ 1:50.27. Leon Clarke of St Jago was third in 1:51.11. Chrissani May of Holmwood stamped her class on the girls Class One 800m with a 2:11.17 win ahead of Edwin Allen’s Asshani Robb in 2:11.26. Edwin Allen’s Gabrielle McDonald shattered her Class One 100m hurdles record on her way to winning the final in 13.12. McDonald, a former Holmwood student, erased her mark of 13.52, which she set in the heats. Wolmer’s Janeek Brown was second in 13.16 ahead of Nicolee Foster, who finished third in 13.40. Calabar’s De’Jour Russell turned in a scintillating performance to win the Class One boys 110m hurdles in a new meet record of 13.21. Russell, who was suffering from a hamstring injury entering the championships, eclipsed the previous mark of 13.24, which was held by KC’s Omar McLeod. Russell’s teammate, Orlando Bennett, was second in 13.52, while third went to JC’s Oquendo Bernard in 13.53. St Jago’s Jahvel Granville won the boys Class Three 100m hurldles in a new meet record 12.90. Granville’s time erased the previous mark of 13.10, which was set by Kamali Simpson. KC’s pair of Timothy Lee (13.17) and Tajae Francis (13.33) was second and third, respectively. St Jago’s Kimara Francis delivered an upset to defending champion Sanique Walker of Vere Technical, coming from behind to win the Class Two girls 400m. Francis posed 54.11 to Walker’s 54.19 with St Catherine’s Anna-Kay Allen in third in 55.06. Petersfield’s Kevin Nedrick won the Class One shot put in a new meet record of 20.65m. Nedrick’s throw erases the previous mark of 19.52m, which was held by Demar Gayle of Edwin Allen. Calabar’s Kyle Mitchell was second in the event with a throw of 17.64m, while KC’s Zico Campbell was third with a mark of 17.52m. Calabar High defied the pre-meet odds last night while Edwin Allen High’s girls posted an expected victory as an exciting and sometimes tension-filled ISSA-GraceKennedy Boys and Girls’ Championships ended inside the National Stadium. Edwin Allen clinched the girls’ title in late afternoon, but the boys’ race went down to the final event. Going into the 4×400 metres, Kingston College, the pre-meet favourites, led by four points – 309-305. Calabar, as expected, swept to victory with ace 400 metres sprinter Christopher Taylor on anchor. KC needed to be in at least third to win the title. They ended in fifth. The National Stadium was turned into a sea of green and black as Calabar finished on 317 points, three ahead of KC, to cop their sixth straight title and 27th title overall. It also extended what was already their longest streak in control of the Mortimer Geddes crown. The top two were followed by Jamaica College (203), St Jago (157), St Elizabeth Technical (114.50) and Wolmer’s (82). Edwin Allen retained their girls’ title after comfortably scoring 304.5 points. Hydel finished second with 255, followed by St Jago (246), Holmwood (238), Vere (117.5), Excelsior (113), Wolmer’s (54) and Immaculate (40). Calabar’s Christopher Taylor was one of the star performers of the meet as he captured the boys Class One 200m, 400m, as well as helping his team to gold in the 4x100m and 4x400m relay events. Taylor ran his heart out to win the Class One boys 400m as he beat teammate Anthony Carpenter in 46.45 seconds. Carpenter, who was fifth in the event last year, clocked 46.53, while Kingston College’s Dawshawn Morris was third in 47.18. The 17-year-old Taylor then returned to capture the Class One 200m in a respectable 20.70. Excelsior’s Andel Miller was second in 20.90, while Taylor’s teammate, Tyreke Wilson, was third in 21.03. Calabar’s Kimar Farquharson added the Class Two boys 800m title to his 1,500m bronze after a stunning final 100m to edge Kingston College’s Tarees Rhoden on the line in a time of 1:52.49. Rhoden posted 1:52.53, while Munro’s Rushane Fullerton was third in 1:53.31. KC’s Ugandan athlete Aryamanya Rodgers won the 5000m Open in 15:07.58. Rodgers’ teammate, Shane Buchanan, the steeplechase champion, was second in 15:20.94, while third went to St Elizabeth Technical’s Shemar Salmon in 15:21.56.last_img read more

City Council approves a part of Station 44 to local developer

first_imgCouncillor Klasssen also assured Mayor Ackerman that his approval of the 54 acres in a one-time deal, and will not reflect future decisions when, and if, another developer requests a piece of Station 44.“I would agree that we will not let any other properties build until that interchange is in place,” Klassen said.The resolution was made to approve North Point’s request after city staff assured the mayor and council the no build covenant will stay in affect for the remaining acres.Once a developer picks up the rest of the land, they’ll be responsible for constructing the accompanying interchange, which Mayor Ackerman insists to be better planned than the current interchanges off the Alaska Highway, which many see as a serious danger to the roads.Advertisement North Point, a local developer, wants to be granted 54 acres of Station 44, which is 220 acres in total, and while Councillor Klassen and Councillor Stewart, who were the only councillors present during the conversation, seem to be completely on board, Mayor Lori Ackerman is concerned that this exception will create a domino effect, allowing more and more pieces of land to be lifted from the no build convent, and subsequently resulting in the much needed interchange becoming the responsibility of the public.“I want to see that the community is not going to wind up, however many years from now, paying for an interchange that should have been built as a result of this development,” Mayor Ackerman explained.However, in a mutual beneficial agreement, city council and the developer have been discussing an alternative, splitting the cost of construction for 85th Avenue instead.- Advertisement -“There’s no reason why we cant put this in place, and request that North Point put it in writing that as an alternative to putting money towards the interchange, they are agreeing to put money towards 85th Avenue to go through,” Councillor Stewart said.Mayor Ackerman’s concerns seemed to be alleviated when City Manger, Diane Hunter assured both the mayor and council that the MOT is aware of the request, and a new traffic impact study is currently underway.“They’ve (the property owner) indicated to us that they definitely see commercial going into that area, they’re not sure if it’s a power centre type of development any longer,” Hunter explained. “So once they nail that down, an additional traffic study will need to be done based on whatever they’re proposing to do, and we’ll match that up against the original traffic study.”Advertisementlast_img read more

A tax too soon

first_imgTAX now; ask questions later. This could be the motto of the Los Angeles City Council. On Friday, the council directed the city attorney to draft the language for a $40-a-year parcel tax for gang programs on the February ballot. This, despite the plea from City Controller Laura Chick to wait until her audit of the city’s current anti-gang programs is completed and it becomes clear how much money – if any – is needed for new programs. Audit, schmaudit. The council doesn’t need an audit to know that the public wants something done about gangs, so it’ll be easy to sell the public a bill of goods. As Councilwoman Janice Hahn said, council members will figure out what to do with the $30 million a year after they get it. If the council wants more cash from the overtaxed citizens who already get a falling-down city for their contributions, the council members must do more than offer vague proposals. They need a plan. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! And they won’t have one until the audit is finished, strategies are put forward and debated, and a commitment is made to end the era of tolerance for hoodlums – and for incompetents at City Hall.last_img read more

Wafer likes to beat odds

first_img It didn’t matter. An AAU team out of Little Rock, Ark., found Wafer and helped put him on the national radar. By the end of his senior year, Wafer had a scholarship to Florida State and an invitation to play in the McDonald’s All- American game. Now consider the circumstances Wafer found himself in this April, when he decided to enter the NBA Draft after two turbulent years as a Seminole, culminating in a season in which he was regularly benched and twice suspended for disciplinary reasons. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week He read plenty of reports saying he would not get drafted. He wasn’t about to be welcomed back to Florida State, even if he didn’t sign with an agent. He ended up being selected by the Lakers in the second round with the No. 39 pick. “Every day I think about that,’ Wafer said. “I made sure I looked at the negative things people said about me every day when I was going through my workouts so I could be motivated. Sometimes I look at them from time to time now.’ Maybe it’s not such a good idea then to bet against Wafer, as the 20- year-old guard tries to make the team out of training camp. After all, Wafer said he won’t merely be content with a spot on the roster; he wants to carve out a 10-year career in the NBA. “It’s good to be where I’m at right now but it can be gone away at any given time,’ Wafer said. “I set my standards a little bit higher. When I get there, I think I’ll be proud of myself then.’ Exactly where Wafer fits is in question. He connected on 48 percent of his 3-pointers in summer- league play and could be the shooter the Lakers need off the bench. But he has little experience handling the ball, part of the job description for a guard in the triangle offense. HONOLULU –Playing in the tiny town of Homer, La., just across the state line from Arkansas in what could be called Karl Malone country, Von Wafer nearly went unnoticed his first three years as a high school basketball player. “I was going to a Class C school, it had like 150 students K-12,’ said Wafer, who averaged 32 points a game almost anonymously as a junior at Pineview High School, “so nobody really ever came to see me play.’ center_img “He’s a highly competitive kid,’ Lakers coach Phil Jackson said. “He’s a child in many aspects of basketball. He’s probably played a lot at the wing and we’re forcing him out there on top of the floor to play a guard position. So that’s where he’s struggling a little bit. “He’s a great shooter. He’s got quickness. He takes the ball to the basket really hard and he competes very well on defense. . . . I’m really pleased with his talent. We anticipate that it’s a growth year for him, like Andrew (Bynum), so we want to keep encouraging him, keep him learning in the process of competing with these guys.’ One unintended benefit of Lamar Odom’s off-season shoulder surgery is that it somehow improved the mechanics of the 6-foot- 10 forward’s shot. Odom said his shot never has felt smoother and he now expects to connect whenever he is left open.
