And fortunately, we still have time and a lot of games to bounce back from this kind of game.” The Beermen seemed to have ripped the game wide open in the third quarter when they grabbed a 72-52 lead only for the Hotshots to rally, behind Ian Sangalang, Jio Jalalon and rookie Robbie Herndon, who proved effective playing against SMB’s zone defense with a couple of triples.“It’s very disappointing and frustrating. I guess we fell in love with our defense because it gave us a lot of glory in the past few games,” Austria said. “But I was not able to react at the time when we needed to go back to man-to-man. And it’s my fault.”Austria also couldn’t get his bench players going as only Chris Ross scored among the reserves—chipping in a single point.“Maybe that’s the reason why we lost this game,” Austria said, after the Hotshots outscored them, 47-1 on bench points.Sangalang more than held his ground against four-time MVP June Mar Fajardo in the series opener, scoring 29 points, two less than the output of his SMB counterpart. But Sangalang hit the baskets that mattered most, while holding Fajardo to just six points in the fourth quarter.ADVERTISEMENT Conor McGregor seeks to emerge from controversy in UFC comeback LATEST STORIES Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

OIA sexual assault…family seeking legal adviceTop officials from the Guyana Police Force (GPF) and the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU) have withdrawn themselves from the alleged sexual assault perpetrated on a teen at the Ogle International Airport (OAI).A 17-year-old girl was alleged to have been cavity searched over the weekend as she was about to depart Guyana for Barbados. In the process, she was sexually assaulted.While Head of the Customs Anti-Narcotics Unit (CANU), Major General (Retd) Michael Atherly, has acknowledged receiving a report of the incident, the top CANU official has denied that one of his officers was responsible.Atherly told Guyana Times on Monday that the offence was carried out by a member of the GPF, whom he claimed allegedly conducted the search of the passenger’s cavity.Contacted on Monday, ‘C’ Division Commander Eon Cooper also denied having knowledge that a Police rank was responsible for the act. He brushed aside allegations that the rank is under close arrest, but said he received reports surrounding the matter and an investigation has been launched.Efforts to contact Head of the Criminal Investigations Department, Assistant Commissioner Paul Williams, proved futile.A close relative of the young lady has said the family is seeking professional/legal advice on the matter, and, as such, declined to comment further.If the Policewoman is found culpable, she stands to be demoted, fined, or dismissed from the GPF.The female teen was in process of visiting her relatives on Sunday when she allegedly was subjected to a “strip search” by officers at the airport before being placed in a room.It was there that a female officer allegedly inserted her “finger” in the girl’s private parts. The law enforcement rank reportedly asked the teen to “spread out and cough”.But Atherly has already condemned the officer’s actions as he stated that the search done on the teenager was carried out in an improper manner.This incident is being seen as important given the Shanique Myrie case which saw her being paid US$38,000 by the Barbadian Government after she alleged that she was sexually assaulted and raped by a female immigration officer in Barbados during a cavity search.Myrie was awarded damages by the Caribbean Court of Justice (CCJ) after she filed a lawsuit claiming she was subjected to a dehumanising cavity search by the female immigration officer at Grantley Adams International Airport, locked in a filthy room overnight, and deported to Jamaica in March 2011.
Sunderland boss Gus Poyet believes January signing Jermain Defoe will get “better and better” during his stay with the Black Cats.The ex-Tottenham striker endured an unhappy return to White Hart Lane on Saturday, having failed to score in a club debut for the first time in his career as a late Christian Eriksen strike secured a 2-1 Spurs win.Defoe struggled to make an impact against his former club before being substituted in the 74th minute, although the 32-year-old could have won a penalty when he tumbled over Vertonghen’s planted leg in the first half.Yet, Poyet was still encouraged by the frontman’s display.“He started brightly, he was sharp,” said the Black Cats boss.“If he got the penalty and he scores we’re talking about a great debut.“The referee, though, didn’t see what everybody else saw clearly.“He was looking for his chance and I played him a bit longer than expected.“He will get better and better and when he gets that first chance he will put the ball in the back of the net.“It was a good start and a great place for him to start playing for us.”Sunderland remain 16th in the table, one point above 18th-placed Hull, who play West Ham on Sunday.“When the winning goal is so late, it hurts,” Poyet added.“But it is part of football, you have to be good until the last minute, not the 88th or the 89th.”

Saugus and Hart appeared in tournament finals. The 3-1 loss to two-time defending Div. II champion Thousand Oaks was just the third of the season for Hart (22-3-1). “It was very successful,” Ramirez said of the Indians’ season. “This is just one game. Unfortunately, soccer is a sport where anything can happen. It’s hard to end this way, but we won 22 games. They’ve got to keep their heads up. “It was a great season. I just didn’t think it’d come to an end this soon.” Done at 41: Hart senior forward Matt Valaika finished his record-setting season with 41 goals, 13 more than the previous school season record. Valaika scored three goals during the playoffs, including the Indians’ lone strike at Thousand Oaks. “I was hoping we’d shut him out, but he got one against us, too,” Thousand Oaks coach Mark Tietjen said. Valaika gave Hart the lead early in the second half. After knocking in the shot from a few feet out, he pulled his shirt over his head and was mobbed by teammates who piled on top of him. The goal could be the last of Valaika’s soccer career. He’s the starting shortstop on Hart’s baseball team, which begins its season next week, then is headed to UC Santa Barbara on a baseball scholarship. Valaika scored 68 goals the past two seasons.

The GAA has praised a Co Donegal club – for becoming just the second in the country to make their club grounds smoke-free.St Mary’s GAA club in Convoy officially launched the plans this weekend.Grants and signage are available from the GAA to other clubs under its ‘Healthy Clubs’ initiative. Stacey Cannon. The National Health & Wellbeing Co-ordinator at Croke Park, said the organisation is keen to encourage clubs to introduce smoke-free communities rather than introducing a ban and praised Convoy for the initiative.“We know this is not going to happen overnight. It’s about wanting to normalise the fact that smoking no longer takes place sat the side of a pitch or training ground. St Mary’s engaged with our programme and we are delighted at the example they are setting,” she said.Lorena Barron, the Children’s Officer at the St Mary’s club, said she was delighted to see her proposal backed by the club executive.“I just didn’t think it was fair that I could be watching a game and someone could light up a cigarette beside me and send smoke over the dug-outs,” she said.“We want to encourage a healthy lifestyle and this is one way of doing that.” Smokers will have to go outside the gate for a puff.The move was also welcomed by County Chair Sean Dunnion who was special guest at Saturday’s official ceremony.The club is being helped by the quit.ie website.The GAA has asked clubs who want to introduce the initiatve to email email@example.com.Meanwhile the club had its awards night.

Buddu walked home with Sh5 million for finishing third. Shaban Lubega.FOOTBALL–2016 Masaza Cup champions Buddu had to do it the hard way against Busiro to take third place at this year’s championships.Buddu who lost their quest to defend the title to Gomba in the semi final, were in shambles at the start as Busiro went 1-0 ahead as early as the sixth minute when striker Kalule lashed onto a through ball to finish in style.It was soon 2-0 with four minutes to play in the first half as Kalule completed his brace.Buddu showed indications that they were still in it by grabbing one at the stroke of half time through Micdad Ssenyonga.The teams were soon level inside five minutes of the second half as Buddu’s striker Frank Ssebufu headed home his fourth of the campaign.Buddu were clearly the better team and when Ssebufu was brought down inside the area, one result was always expected from the resulting penalty as Ivan Sserubiri ensured that went into the lead for the first time on the night.Ivan Kato made sure that the self-proclaimed best county in Buganda walked home with SH5 million rather than Sh3 million reserved for fourth place finisher.Buddu county chief Vicent Pokino said the consolation was not bad and that his players had done their best for the honours.“I am so pleased with the players because it is always not easy when you are playing for third place but the determination and character they showed makes me believe they will win it next year,” he said.Comments
