Vipers defeat Lahanis in close encounter

first_imgYesterday they defeated the Bintangor Goroka Lahanis at the Oil Search National Football Stadium, 14 points to 10.It was neck and neck through-out the first half of the game until Larsen Marabe scored the first for the 3rd-placed Vipers, just a couple of minutes before the half-time whistle. Benton Leme met Marabe halfway with a conversion.Back into second half, the attacks and defense from both sides intensified, but not without a lot of ball handling errors as a fifth-placed Lahanis fought tooth and nail to get one over.Vipers, noticing the pressure coming from their opponents, increased their attacking strengths but succumbed to more dropped balls.The Lahanis took advantage of this with their first try from Amos Kafare.It was an unconverted try, but a penalty in the 57th minute to the Lahanis equalised the game 6 all.However, Vipers showed the visitors they were a team to be reckoned with.They push past the Lahanis’ defense when Gary Pep went in for the Vipers’ second try, putting them 10 ahead of Lahanis.Vipers sought after another try in Kerry Pep, who put it just in the right corner of the Lahanis tryline…and Brendon Gotuno brought the Vipers to 14.The Lahanis never backed down, going in for their second through Charlie Buka in the 78th minute.It was 14 – 10 in favour of the Vipers when the final whistle went off.last_img read more

But I didn’t do anything yet because I was still waiting for the right time to get back at him.

Yankees pitcher Lidle dies in plane crash

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John PhillipsThe official said he did not know whether Lidle was at the controls; at least one other person was aboard the four-seat aircraft.The crash rattled New Yorkers nerves five years after the Sept. 11 attacks, abut the FBI and the Homeland Security quickly said there was no evidence it was anything but an accident. Nevertheless, fighter jets were sent aloft over New York and other U.S. cities as a precaution, the Pentagon said.The plane came through a hazy, cloudy sky and hit the 20th floor of The Belaire — a red-brick tower overlooking the East River, about five miles from the World Trade Center — with a loud bang, touching off a raging fire that cast a pillar of black smoke over the city and sent flames shooting from four windows on two adjoining floors.Firefighters shot water streams of water at the flames from the floors below and put the blaze out in less than an hour.Large crowds gathered in the street in the largely wealthy New York neighborhood, with many people in tears and some trying to reach loved ones by cell phone. I was worried the building would explode, so I got out of there fast, said Lori Claymont, who fled an adjoining building in sweatpants.On Sunday, the day after the Yankees were eliminated from the playoffs, Lidle cleaned out his locker at Yankee Stadium and talked about his interest in flying.He explained to reporters the process of getting a pilot s license, and said he intended to fly back to California in several days and planned to make a few stops. Lidle disccused the plane crash of John F. Kennedy Jr. and how he had read the accident report on the National Transportation Safety Board Web site.Lidle, acquired from the Philadelphia Phillies on July 30, told The New York Times last month that his four-seat Cirrus SR20 plane was safe. The whole plane has a parachute on it, Lidle said. Ninety-nine percent of pilots that go up never have engine failure, and the 1 percent that do usually land it. But if you re up in the air and something goes wrong, you pull that parachute, and the whole plane goes down slowly. Lidle pitched 1 1/3 innings in the fourth and final game of the Division Series against the Detroit Tigers and gave up three earned runs, but was not the losing pitcher. He had a 12-10 regular-season record with a 4.85 ERA.He pitched with the Phillies before coming to the Yankees. Began his career in 1997 with the Mets. He also pitched for Tampa Bay, Oakland, Toronto and Cincinnati.Lidle was an outcast among some teammates throughout his career because he became a replacement player in 1995, when major leaguers were on strike.165Let’s talk business.Catch up on the business news closest to you with our daily newsletter.

New York Yankees pitcher and South Hills High School graduate Cory Lidle was killed Wednesday when his small private airplane crashed into a New York City skyscraper, killing at least two people.Lidle, who graduated in 1990 from South Hills in West Covina, was reportedly killed along with another unidentified person when the plane struck a 50-story condominium tower on Manhattan s Upper East Side at about 2:45 p.m. Eastern standard time.Lidle, 34, is said to have been building a home in Covina with his wife and child.A law enforcement official in Washington, speaking on condition of anonymity, said Lidle was on the plane. And Federal Aviation Administration records showed the single-engine plane was registered to the athlete, who just days ago — after the Yankees humiliating elimination from the playoffs — told reporters that he was getting his pilot s license.last_img read more

Police Scotland probing ‘threatening comments’ made against Neil Lennon

first_img Neil Lennon 1 Police are probing ‘threatening comments’ made against Neil Lennon after the Hibernian head coach’s eventful return to Ibrox.Social media posts apparently show a user claiming he would shoot Lennon, and adding he was ‘serious’ about the threat.Police had earlier received complaints over Lennon’s conduct during Hibs’ victory over Rangers on Saturday but the former Celtic manager has denied any wrongdoing.A force spokeswoman said: “Police Scotland is aware of offensive and threatening comments that have been posted on social media concerning a named individual and enquiries are ongoing in connection with this.”Police earlier confirmed they were making enquiries following the complaints about Lennon, which centred around his goal celebrations after Simon Murray made it 1-1.The Northern Irishman cupped his ears and raised a fist towards Rangers fans, after being subjected to verbal abuse beforehand. Hibs went on to win 3-2 after Rangers midfielder Ryan Jack was sent off following a clash with Anthony Stokes.Following the Ladbrokes Premiership match, Lennon insisted he had no concerns about his celebrations after the 20th-minute goal.When it was suggested Rangers assistant manager Helder Baptista had spoken to police about him, Lennon said: “I didn’t make a gesture, I celebrated a goal.“If they are unhappy about it they can come and tell me. But I shouldn’t get into trouble for doing that.“I am celebrating a goal. What way are you supposed to celebrate a goal?”Scottish Football Association compliance officer Tony McGlennan could also look into the incident.Lennon has a two-game suspended ban hanging over him following a touchline clash with Morton boss Jim Duffy last season. The ban would be triggered if Lennon was found guilty of misconduct before the end of 2017.Former Dundee United manager Mixu Paatelainen was handed a suspended two-match ban for similar celebrations, although more prolonged and aggressive, in front of Dundee fans in April 2016. An SFA disciplinary tribunal ruled he had breached rules by ”shouting and gesticulating at away supporters”.last_img read more

An investigation is under way into the crash on Rosemead Boulevard near San Gabriel Boulevard, which occurred when a 1990 Cadillac going north on Rosemead collided with three southbound vehicles, said Public Affairs Officer Bill Preciado of the California Highway Patrol’s East Los Angeles Station. WHITTIER – A 19-year-old Whittier man apparently hanged himself in the Turnbull Canyon area Sunday, police said Monday. The man was found at about 2:30 p.m., hours after he was reported missing by family members, said sheriff’s Lt. Duane Harris. A Whittier police officer spotted the man’s abandoned pickup truck on Turnbull Canyon Road, and sheriff’s officials brought police dogs to search for him, said Harris. Officials said he was found hanging from a tree limb several hundred feet from his truck, on a mountainside. The collision killed the male driver of the Cadillac, a female passenger and a 60-year-old Downey woman, who was a passenger in a 1999 Nissan Maxima, one of the southbound vehicles. The driver of the Nissan, a 59-year-old Downey man, suffered major injuries, along with the 27-year-old Pico Rivera man, who was driving a 1998 Honda Accord. They were both transported to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center. Toxicology reports on the individual driving the Cadillac were not yet back, added Preciado.

Jason Jones, the 35-year-old owner of ACME Game Store, pleaded guilty earlier this year to conspiring to violate federal copyright laws. He was sentenced Monday to six months of home detention and three years probation.
