Dream IPL debut for Aussie bowler

first_img Tye could have got one more wicket off his last delivery but Ajay Jadeja, also playing his first game for the Lions, blew a catch at midwicket to dismiss Rahul Chahar. Supergiant captain Steve Smith, who missed the last game due to illness, top-scored with 43. It was the Lions’ first win in three matches while Supergiant have lost three of their four matches. Today, Kolkata Knight Riders host defending champions Sunrisers Hyderabad (5:30 a.m. Ja time) and Kings XI Punjab take on Delhi Daredevils in Delhi at 9:30 a.m. RAJKOT, India (AP): Andrew Tye of Australia made a dream Indian Premier League (IPL) debut with a hat-trick to earn the revamped Gujarat Lions a thumping seven-wicket victory over Rising Pune Supergiant yesterday. Medium-fast bowler Tye, one of the four changes made by the Lions, finished with five for 17 and restricted Supergiant to 171-8. Veteran Brendon McCullum (49) and Dwayne Smith (47) then carried the Lions to 172-3 in 18 overs for their first win. Both batsmen tormented Supergiant bowlers with a 94-run opening stand off 53 balls, and negated the spin threat of Imran Tahir, who finished with 1-53. Tye, who took five wickets in five Twenty20s for Australia, claimed the wickets of Ankit Sharma, Manoj Tiwari, and Shardul Thakur in the last over for his hat-trick. Two earlier blows gave him the wickets of Rahul Tripathi (33) and Ben Stokes (25). MISSED CATCHlast_img read more

LCP, Partners Sign Communiqué

first_imgThe national peace festival scheduled to take place next Monday, October 24, has gained a major boost with the Liberia Crusaders for Peace (LCP) and partners signing a major communiqué soliciting the support of everyone in maintaining the nation’s peace.Those who signed the peace document, in addition to LCP, were Women in Peace-building Network (WIPNET), the Press Union of Liberia (PUL), the Muslim Union, Women on the Move, Liberia Marketing Association (LMA), and University of Liberia Students Union (ULSU).LCP Executive Director, Julie Endee, who read the communiqué, said the two-day peace forum (October 18-19) is aimed to build consensus in sustaining peace now and after the 2017 presidential and legislative elections.‘’As we have concluded and affixed our signatures to this document, clothed with legal implications and social independence, we now resolve to sustain the peace. We will not relent to hold politicians including stakeholders accountable for any acts contrary to peace in our country,’’ Madam Endee said.She said delegates from various organizations in partnership with LCP emphasized the importance of peace in Liberia.On behalf of the Peace Building Office at Ministry of Internal Affairs earlier on Tuesday, Madam Massa Fofana expressed gratitude on behalf of her office staff to the leadership of the LCP and all the partners that provided the requisite education to the public on peace.‘’When you have peace, you work freely, move around freely and achieve lots more than when there is war or some other forms of unrest,’’ Madam Fofana said.She called on the youth to be good listeners and remain patient to deal with issues as they arise.On the other hand, she called on the adults to help the young people to learn rather than always calling them names that do not mean good for not only the youth, but society as well.She pledged MIA’s full support to the grand peace festival expected to take place on Monday.For her part, WIPNET head Mrs. Cecelia T. Danuwalie said peace cannot be sustained unless it comes from the heart of an individual.She called on everyone to free his or her mind from prejudices and perceptions that would block positive thinking.Joe Wallay, former spokesperson of the disbanded rebel faction, Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURD), pledged to promote peace in the country for the rest of his life. He called on other former warlords to join the campaign against violence.The two day peace forum’s communiqué last weekend engaged the National Elections Commission (NEC) to sign the document and commit to the conduct of free, fair, credible, transparent, and peaceful elections.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

INTERMEDIATE CHAMPIONSHIP: MILFORD EARN HARD FOUGHT POINT AGAINST NAOMH COLUMBA

first_imgMilford GAA NotesNa Galloglaigh will play their Group 1 games this Sunday at home to Carndonagh. All support greatly appreciatedNaomh Columba 0-14 CLG BnaG 2-8 A year ago nobody would have expected Na Galloglaigh would be disappointed to come away from Pairc na nGael with only a draw, but the lads will be bitterly disappointed to just come away with a share of the spoils today.Played in a cold and typically windy Glencolombcille the lads played against the breeze in the first half and struggled.Naomh Columba seemed to be first to every ball and Na Galloglaigh got themselves very very little breaking ball over the course of the game.Some good Naomh Columba tackling turned over the lads far too often in the first half, sometimes a bit too softly. While the breeze was somewhat an excuse, the overall first half performance wasn’t good enough and the boys went in 0-9 to 0-2 at half time.The boys came out the second half looking much more determined, and after 33 minutes a super pass from Cathal Mc Gettigan found Kane Barrett who rounded the keeper to finish into an empty net, to leave the deficit at 5 points. The lads worked their socks off all over the pitch and began turning over Naomh Columba in possession, but for a lot of the 3rd quarter they were guilty of possibly not chipping away at Naomh Columbas lead as much as they would have liked. The second goal came in the 44th minute when a high ball into the square bobbled about a few times before Joey Cullen fisted into the net to bring the difference to just 3 points. Naomh Columba began to swamp their defence but in effect it only invited our lads on to them and right on the 60 minute mark Luc O Bairead scored a monster of a point from all of 50 yards to tie the game up, before Tj Tj Evesson of all people popped up to put Na Galloglaigh into the lead for the first time in the match, in the 61st minute. The lads defended well and worked incredibly hard again in the bid to be the first away team to win in Glencolombcille this season. However the hearts sank in the 64th minute as Jimmy White gave Naomh Columba an inexplicably soft free in just inside the D, when it looked to most of the good vocal Na Galloglaigh support that it should have been a free out for charging. Not only that, Luke Barrett received a second yellow for telling Jimmy what we all were thinking, and found himself on the sideline. The free was scored and there wasn’t even time for a kick out before the final whistle went. That’s 2 draws from 2 for the boys in Group 1 and play Carn in their final group match at home next week. Having beaten Carn twice in the league the lads would feel optimistic, but reportedly Carn have several key players back from emigration and Na Galloglaigh will need to be on the ball to ensure they advance to the quarter finals. Team: Caolan Mc Gettigan, Gavin Grier, Sean Black, Gary Gary Merritt, TJ Evesson (0-2), Jonny Logue, James James Doyle, Joey Cullen (1-0), Luke Barrett (0-3), Pauric Pauric Curley, Christopher Christopher Barrett (0-1), David David Curley, Kane Barrett (1-0), Cathal McGettigan (0-2), Paddy Paddy Peoples. Subs: Dean Dean Burgess, Manus Manus Boyce, Enda McHugh, Kieran Kieran Sheridan, Cormac Friel, Gearoid Horkan*Reserve Intermediate Championship – Group 1*Naomh Columba 1-5 CLG BnaG 0-5The Reserves were defeated today in a tough and tight encounter in which both teams seemed to have forgotten their shooting boots. Playing with the wind the lads were guilty of too many wides in the first half and should really have built a stronger lead at half time but only went in a point up 0-3 to 0-2. Naomh Columba got themselves in front early on in the second half when they hit the back of the net, but Na Galloglaigh had a golden opportunity to level the match up again ten minutes in the second half when a penalty was awarded after Hugh Mc Menamin was pulled down in the box. Unfortunately Kieran Gorman’s penalty was saved by the keeper. Naomh Columba missed a fortune of chances as the game went on but Na Galloglaigh were always in the game right up to the final whistle, and had a couple of chances to snatch at least a draw themselves. Late on both sides were reduced to 14 men as a Naomh Columba forward kicked out at Paul Grier who retaliated to give the ref no option but to give both players their marching orders. As it stands they have lost both their championship matches but with 8 of 10 teams advancing the lads could still have a chance of progressing depending on the other groups. Team: Barry McNulty, Kieran Sheridan, Gearoid Horkan, Dean Boyce, Cormac Friel, Paul Grier (0-1), Ryan Ferry, Enda McHugh, Kieran Gorman, Jamie Heena (0-1), Adam Serrinha (0-3), Odhrán Coll, Hugh McMenamin, Ciaran McHugh, Mark Farren.

Chris started at centre half forward for WA as they played with a strong breeze in the first half which they failed to take advantage of, while in the second half Victoria used the conditions well to build a solid lead. WA had a great one-on-one chance in the second half to get themselves back into the game but unfortunately it wasn’t to be and Victoria ran out ten points winner in the end. Nevertheless Chris said it was a great experience and all credit to him for being selected for WA and progressing so far in the competition, all at the Club are very proud of his efforts.*Subscribe to Our Newsletter*Our Club Newsletter will be making a return in the coming days, if you would like to be added to the mailing list or your email address has changed please contact us with your name and email by private message on here or text 086-3400082.*U16s Defeated in Shield Final*CLG BnaG 1-12 Letterkenny Gaels 3-9There was heartache for the U16s on Friday as they lost out to Letterkenny Gaels in the Final in a thrilling encounter in Moyle Park. In a slow opening quarter it took ten minutes before a score was registered, but after that Na Galloglaigh ran rampant to lead by 8 points at half time, 1-8 to 0-3, with home advantage starting to show in front of a large attendance. However in the opening 5 minutes of the second half disaster struck, as the BnaG defence, which was so solid in the first half, allowed Gaels players to run from deep to score 2 goals in 4 minutes. This seemed to knock the lads for 6 and before they knew it the lead they worked so hard to build in the first half was gone. However, the boys showed the same spirit that got them to the final, when they battled back from the brink against Burt to come from 2-5 to 0-0 down at half time to emerge victors, and kept putting up a fight against the Gaels. Only for some wayward shooting at times and some last ditch defending from Letterkenny the boys could have snatched back victory once again but in the end it finished in disappointment as Letterkenny Gaels won by 3-9 to 1-12. The Club would like to thank their manager Dean Boyce and all the team for all their efforts this year, there is great potential in this team and if they work hard and stick together for one another there is no reason why they can’t take a Minor title home in the coming years. Dean has also expressed his gratitude to the players for their hard work and we congratulate him on getting his team to the final, even if the result didn’t go his way on the day. Team: Jamie-Lee Blaney, Derek Edwards, Kyle Macaulay, Hayden Curran, Dermot Friel, Ronan Docherty (0-1), Patrick Ferry, Cormac Toland (0-2), Ryan Mcmahon, Conor Mc Hugh (0-2), Connor Gormley (0-5), Martin Doyle, Ryan Toye (0-1), Patrick McCarron, Ryan Spike Flood (1-0).

But it did not stop the BnaG lads fighting to the end and indeed Conor Coll and Rory O’Donnell scored some of the scores of the game. It has been a good season for the U13s all the same and congratulations to all the players and their coaches on their hard work and good behaviour at training and during matches.*U10 Parish League*Their is just one more group game to play for each team this Friday at 6pm before the Semi Final fixtures are decided.
