Sione Molia also scored a stunning individual effort, bursting through three or four tacklers before diving in under the posts.After the break, Regan Ware, captain Scott Curry and Andrew Knewstubb scored to bring up 40 points for New Zealand. Samuel Oliech scored a late consolation for Kenya.Shujaa had earlier began their campaign with a 26-10 win over Canada.  Nathan Hirayama put the Canadians ahead for a 5-0 lead but Collins Injera scored on the stroke of half time to see the teams tied 5-5 at the interval.Oliech would then convert Jeff Oluoch’s try to put the Kenyas 12-5 up but Canada kept in touch through Justin Douglas’ unconverted effort which brought up the scores to 12-10 before Oliech stroked home two conversions after Nelson Oyoo and Willy Ambaka touched down to win the game for Kenya.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Broke Leopards suffer Tusker hangover

first_imgThe focus of Saturday KPL action was at Nyayo where Leopards who trained only once this week after players went on strike over pay were bottled in a match decided by Kevin Kimani’s 21st minute free-kick.“We didn’t deserve to lose at all because we had our chances and they had one from a free kick and they scored. We dominated with the proceedings but we have problem with the fitness; we couldn’t put pressure on them in the last 20 minutes,” Ingwe head coach, Zradvko Logarusic declared.Tusker boss, Francis Kimanzi applauded his players for sticking to his game plan as his team brewed a second successive win.“I’m satisfied with the result, what we are looking forward to is building match after match. It’s a slim win but the most important thing is we have maximum points.“We were more composed though we started slowly but more important we kept our game plan. People may say Leopards were not training but they were training individually so if you engage them in running, you will see a lot of problems,” Kimanzi added.The win saw the Brewers climb to third on 15 points, two behind champions and leaders Gor Mahia who have two matches in hand, the first against plucky Ushuru FC on Sunday.Leopards’ players had threatened not to honour the fixture until they were paid three month salary and bonus arrears and reports suggest they were convinced to take to the field after receiving Sh80, 000 from a Good Samaritan on Friday.Ingwe who entered the tie on the back of another 1-0 defeat to Ushuru made three changes with Joel Bataro in goal, Edwin Wafula in midfield and Joseph Shikokoti at the back for first choice keeper Wycliffe Kasaya, Martin Kiiza and Bernard Mang’oli who were ruled out by injury.Ingwe gave the Brewers a run for their money in the first-half with both sides battling for supremacy in midfield as Emanuel Ngama, Jacob Keli and Lamine Diallo tormented Tusker’s defence.After Bataro tipped over Aboud Omar’s shot from the left, Kimani made the difference after Joseph Shikokoti handled the ball at the edge of the box.Kimani stepped up to punish Bataro’s poor positioning by squeezing the ball inside the right bottom corner.Logarusic brought on Khaleed Jumaan, Diallo and Ezekiel Seda for Ngama, Karim Ndungwa and Noah Wafula in the second half.Ndungwa and Wafula piled the pressure but Tusker stood tall while on the other end Osborne Monday and Patrick Oboya blasted wide when presented with chances to double the lead.Kimanzi introduced Donald Mosoti for Oboya to push the marauding Leopards back as Tusker wound down the clock to collect maximum points.In Awendo, Andrew Sekayombya, Meshack Okukhulu and Kennedy Oduor scored for Sony with Daniel Mutai scoring the consolation.Skipper Abass Akinyemi scored from the spot against Western Stima to hand Muhoroni Youth the win in Kisumu.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000NAIROBI, April 25 – Cash-strapped giants AFC Leopards suffered their second successive defeat after a week of turmoil ended with the hangover of a 1-0 defeat to Tusker FC during a hard fought Kenyan Premier League (KPL) clash at Nairobi’s Nyayo Stadium.At Awendo Green Stadium, Sony won the sugar millers derby after bouncing back to overcome Chemelil 3-1 and across in Kisumu, Western Stima were outclassed 1-0 winners by Muhoroni Youth who recorded a first victory in four games.last_img read more

Bureaucrat scolded for Wikipedia entries

first_imgBy The Associated Press TOKYO – A Japanese bureaucrat has been reprimanded for shirking his duties to make hundreds of Wikipedia contributions about toy robots, officials said Friday. The agriculture ministry said the bureaucrat, whose name was not released, contributed 260 times to the Japanese-language Wikipedia entry on Gundam, a popular, long-running animated series about giant robots that has spun off intricate toys popular among children and adults who belong to the so-called “otaku culture” of fascination with comic books, animation and robots. “The agriculture ministry is not in charge of Gundam,” ministry official Tsutomu Shimomura said. The agriculture ministry verbally reprimanded five other bureaucrats who contributed to entries on movies, typographical mistakes in billboard signs and local politics. The six employees together made 408 entries on the popular Internet encyclopedia from ministry computers since 2003. The ministry did not object to employees making limited contributions on World Trade Organization and free trade agreements. The reprimands emerged from an internal probe following recent media allegations that a growing number of Japanese public servants were contributing to the Web encyclopedia, which anyone can edit, often to reflect their views. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Liverpool target snubbed Anfield because he ‘wants to win trophies’

first_imgDanish defender Simon Kjaer has offered a damning assessment of Liverpool’s current status, suggesting he turned down the Merseyside club because he ‘wants to win trophies.’The Lille centre-back has opted for Turkey instead with Fenerbache, supposedly rejecting Premier League advances from the Reds and West Ham in the process.And the 26-year-old, whose family are reportedly all Liverpool supporters, cited a single reason for his decision to snub Brendan Rodgers – trophies.“It’s not a secret that my family are Liverpool fans, and a move to Liverpool would make my family happy,” said the Dane.“Liverpool wanted me, but I want championships, I want to win trophies. Fenerbahce’s goals this season are big, and it was explained to me very well.” Simon Kjaer 1last_img read more

Stem-cell save

first_imgWHEN former Mayor James Hahn bungled the application to host the state’s new stem cell research institute, it seemed like an irreparable blow: Hundreds of millions, perhaps billions of dollars in future revenue to the region were lost in that single error. But the generosity of billionaire Eli Broad and his wife could put L.A. back on track to reap some of the economic benefits. The Broads say they will donate $25 million to a stem cell research center at the University of Southern California. Broad, who made his fortune transforming the open lands of Southern California into housing tracts for the masses, now has the power to transform South L.A. with the center and research park that could add good-paying jobs to the economy.
