Blygen’s hat-trick lifts Boys’ Town in Locker Room Sports KSAFA Jackie Bell KO

first_imgMichael Blygen’s hat-trick rescued Boys’ Town from embarrassment against lower leaguers Maxfield Park, in their Locker Room Sports KSAFA/Jackie Bell Knockout game at Collie Smith Complex yesterday.The home team surrendered a two-goal lead to the Major League outfit, which came back from two-nil down to level at 2-2. But two late goals from the former Tivoli Gardens striker saw the home team win 4-2.After a dour and goalless first half, Boys’ Town went in front just before the hour (59th) when Blygen flicked the ball over the Maxfield goalkeeper and it fell into the goal. Minutes later, Chavanney Willis made it 2-0 when he latched on to a through ball and slotted home.However, the visitors responded minutes later when Romaine Mullington was on the end of a good build-up to tap the ball past the Boys’ Town custodian. And before Boys’ Town realised what hit them, Nico Reynolds, Maxfield’s best player, equalised with a rasping shot from the edge of the box.Maxfield nearly went ahead in the 80th minute, but referee Carvel Banton adjudged that the ball had not crossed the goalline. Then on the counter, Boys’ Town went straight up field and Blygen capitalised on a loose ball to make it 3-2.The former Humble Lion and Rivoli player sealed the win two minutes from time when he broke away and calmly slotted home.Blygen spent the second-half of last season in the Dominican Republic, but missed most of that campaign through injury.”So far in the Premier League, things have been very disappointing. I hope this will be a stepping stone for me to get more playing time and deliver for my team and try to help them make the top four,” he said.”Last season, I joined Boys’ Town in January, then went on a trial overseas in Dominica Republic. I made the team and played three matches, but injury got the better of me. But this season I am back, so I am just taking it a step at a time and doing my best and see what happens.”So I hope this hat-trick gives coach more confidence in me because I have always worked hard, but the team has been up and down; we are not being consistent. So I hope that this is a stepping stone for me to get time on the pitch,” he reasoned.Coach Andrew Price is also hoping this is a turning point for his striker.”I hope that this will be a catalyst for him (Blygen) to assist us in the third round. Boys’ Town always play better football in the third round, and we are preparing ourselves assiduously to really make a good run and see where it leads us,” he declared.Yesterday’s resultsBarbican 1 UWI 0Waterhouse 2 Maverley/Hughenden 1Boys’ Town 4 Maxfield 2Today’s games3 p.m. August Town vs Bull Bay at UWI Mona Bowl3 p.m. Olympic Gardens vs Real Mona at Cling Cling Oval3 p.m. Rockfort vs Cavalier at Rockfort3 p.m. Cooreville Gardens vs Arnett Gardens at Duhaney Park7 p.m. Harbour View vs Tivoli Gardens at Harbour View Stadiumlast_img read more

Students pack out Bafana training

first_img9 June 2010Greeted with ululations and blasts from vuvuzelas, the South African squad took to the pitch in an open training session at Wits University’s Sturrock Park ground in Johannesburg on Tuesday afternoon.Calls of “Boooothhh” (referring to South African footballer Matthew Booth) and the singing of South Africa’s unofficial sports anthem, Shosholoza, echoed around Sturrock Park as the fans showed their support for their national side.The training session’s tickets were reserved for Wits University staff and students, many of whom have been waiting for an opportunity to see the team in action.“I did everything in my power to get here,” said Yaeesh Moosa, a 22-year-old engineering student. “I have to get my hands on Steven Pienaar’s boots. No, seriously, I am a huge Bafana fan.“I want to be patriotic and support my side,” Moosa said. “I was ready two hours before this practice event, and I couldn’t sleep I’m so excited for the tournament.“The fact that we get to host these great teams and see some of the stars on campus is amazing.”Wits University is a hub of activity during the World Cup, with both South Africa and the Dutch sides having venues on the campus for training.Certain hostels will be hosting international fans, while the journalism, medical and commerce faculties are involved in research and support during the tournament.Wits is also one of the designated “Park and Ride” venues for both the Ellis Park and Soccer City stadiums.Watching the South African side play a practice game, Lekwatle Pheladi and Pedzie Chiwota, two Wits staff members, said they were on the edge of their seats in anticipation of the tournament.Chiwota has a ticket to the opening game and is looking forward to the historic occasion.“This event has united the people of South Africa,” he said. “It is the first World Cup in Africa and it will be incredible to see Bafana playing at Soccer City against Mexico.”Source: 2010 Fifa World Cup South Africa Organising Committeelast_img read more

Larrick recognized for taking pork industry leadership to a higher level

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest For some, the perfect blend of livestock care, management, breeding savvy, and good old-fashioned hard work coordinated and peaking at just the right time for show ring success holds a powerful appeal. Marvin Larrick from Highland County caught the bug early and has built a life around it.His love for pigs runs deep. He grew up raising cattle, which eventually led to feeding hogs as an opportunity to feed out some corn. He showed Durocs growing up through 4-H, but as he got older and started his own herd, they began selling some club pigs and raised Hampshire purebred hogs that led to many show ring successes.Larrick and his family reside in Highland County where he works with his brother and retired father farming about 1,800 acres of corn, soybeans and wheat while also maintaining a sow operation. Having raised several county fair champions, Larrick decided to get into a larger show circuit and started showing and selling pigs nationally. In recent years, the Larrick herd sold a barrow named “Dakota” that brought home a champion banner from what he describes to be “the premier barrow show” held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma as well as winning the Hampshire Boar competition at the Indiana State Fair.The family enjoys the show atmosphere, the challenges of facing different judges each time they enter the ring and the evolving expectations of the ideal animal.“What is great today may not be great tomorrow,” he said. “I would like to see us getting back into the middle of the road between lean and heavy muscle where the hog is still sound, still productive and still grows.”Over the years of showing, Larrick has seen many changes in the show world including converting from purebreds to crossbreds and the overall structure of the hog. As a breeder it can be a gamble to breed hogs that the judges prefer. Always looking for the next edge when it comes to feed rations, genetics and management, Larrick stays up to date on the next best thing for his herd.“I have seen the pendulum swing from the left to the right and then back to the left again. If you are continuing to chase it, you are never going to catch it,” he said. “If you were very smart, you would breed the hogs you like to raise yourself because if you do not satisfy yourself, you are not going to satisfy anyone else. Raise the hogs you like to raise and what you know. The ideal hog should be the ideal pork chop.”Beyond the barn and the show ring, the Larricks are very involved in the community, county fair and Highland County Pork Producers where Marvin served as president. From there he continued to serve at higher levels in the Ohio Pork Council.In 2001, he became the Ohio Pork Board President. Through his 10 years on the Board he saw many great things accomplished as well as the challenges and barriers for the pork industry in general. He also had the opportunity to travel to Washington D.C. and gain an understanding about what happens with legislators while working to advocate for farmers and livestock operations.While serving the Ohio Pork Board, he saw hog prices go to $8, the termination of the checkoff, the checkoff re-instated, and the establishment of a new voluntary checkoff. He was able to do some legislative work himself with the Ohio Department of Agriculture to brainstorm ideas in order to not lose the checkoff. He then took the idea to the national level.Larrick’s two years as board president overlapped a very critical time for the state and National Pork Producers Council and he worked to negotiate a new and vital funding mechanism with the National Pork Board and the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Voted into action in 2002 by national producer delegates, the program was originally called the Producer Consent program and it was started to ensure that adequate funding would be available for critical programs focused on public policy, including legislative and regulatory issues management, as well as trade issues. Now called the Strategic Investment Program (SIP), the program provides funding for state organizations to support their members on local legislative and regulatory issues. SIP funds are used to strengthen the organization’s mission to enhance and defend opportunities for U.S. pork producers at home and abroad.Pork producers participate by voluntarily investing a percentage of the sales of each market hog sold. A portion of this investment is distributed as unrestricted funds to the state organizations, allowing them to respond to threats on a local basis including fighting for reasonable legislation and regulation, developing revenue and market opportunities and protecting the livelihood of pork producers.Larrick really championed the SIP program in Ohio and nationwide.“Marvin was able to carry the message to all producers, regardless of the size of the operation. As a result, Ohio was one of the first states in the country to ‘buy in’ and encourage a large percentage of pigs marketed in Ohio to enroll in the program,” said Bryan Black former Ohio Pork Council president.In addition, Larrick served as a delegate at the National Pork Producers Council annual meeting and served as chairman of the Ohio Pork Council’s Legislative Committee. He currently serves on the Ohio Pork Council Events Committee and is very involved at the local level in Highland County. He also serves as the lead coordinator for the annual Pork Congress PAC auction.Going forward, Larrick believes that environmental groups and animal care issues will be the greatest challenges the industry has to face.“Producers are taking the best care of their animals because it is their livelihood, everyone doesn’t always understand that, though,” Larrick said. “If you treat the sow right, she will take care of everything else and you will be successful.”As he continues his service to the pork industry, the Larrick herd is thriving and they are looking to continue to produce high quality county fair pigs far into the future. When not working on the farm or handling hogs, Marvin spends time serving as a husband and father of five children. Along with his wife, Christy, he thoroughly enjoys watching their children excel in sports as he also coaches softball and basketball, and stays busy with WW Cleaners — the dry cleaning business they own. Just recently, the Larrick family got into the rodeo scene as well with their youngest boy, Owen.The pork industry in Ohio is made up of many outstanding leaders and occasionally there are a few of those leaders that strive to go above and beyond the expectation and exert a passion to improve swine production as a whole. Though he may suggest otherwise, there is no question as to why the Ohio Pork Council selected Larrick as the 2017 Pork Industry Excellence Award winner. From the Larricks’ continued support and passion for the industry, it is evident that they truly care about pork production and watching others succeed in the end.“Being involved with Pork Congress for the last 20 years now with some of the great people that have gone through, I was honored to be put in that category,” he said. “I am not sure why I am worthy, but I was honored. I was not sure what I had done that had been that spectacular.”last_img read more
