first_imgBy Andreas VouAPOEL travel to Amsterdam to take on Dutch champions Ajax on Wednesday (9.45pm) knowing that only a win will do in order to remain in European competition beyond the new year. Giorgos Donis’ side are bottom of Champions League Group F, one point behind their Dutch counterparts. A win for APOEL will see them leapfrog their opponents into third place which will hand them progression to the knockout phase of the Europa League.Despite their valiant performances, APOEL have amassed just one point so far in the competition and have lost three games in a row without scoring a goal since their only draw this campaign – that point came against Ajax in Nicosia, where the two sides played out a 1-1 draw.Gustavo Manduca’s penalty, APOEL’s only goal so far in the competition this season, leveled the game just four minutes after Lucas Andersen had put the visitors ahead.Two defeats against Paris Saint-Germain as well as a heavy 4-0 home loss at the hands of Barcelona have left APOEL with the tough task of defeating Ajax on their own patch – the Cypriots have never won a Champions League match away from home.Club captain Constantinos Charalambidis continues his road to recovery while Argentine midfielder Tomas De Vincenti is undergoing individual physiotherapy and gym exercises but both will not make the squad for Wednesday’s game. John Arne Riise will also remain in Cyprus after coming down with symptoms of gastroenteritis.Brazilian centre-back Carlao has been one of APOEL’s top performers in this year’s competition and his return to training is a major boost for the Cypriots, especially as his defensive partner Guilherme misses out through suspension following his red card against Barcelona.Ajax will be without Kolbeinn Sigthórsson after the Icelandic international suffered an ankle injury in his side’s 5-0 drubbing of Willem II over the weekend. The striker managed to bag Ajax’s opening goal on 14 minutes but was forced off just five minutes later.Ajax will qualify for the knockout stage of the Europa League as long as they avoid defeat but Dutch legend Johan Cruyff has warned his former club that playing for a draw could bring negative consequences.“Against APOEL, there could be unfortunate surprises. It is true that, for Ajax, a point is enough but if they play for a draw they may have a problem.“Therefore I suggest they play attacking and intelligently. APOEL defend very well and the best way of approaching them is to be clinical,” Cruyff concluded, speaking to De Telegraaf. APOEL go into their do-or-die match in high spirits following a 0-1 away win against Anorthosis which, coupled with Apollon’s 3-1 defeat against AEK Larnaca, gives them a five-point lead at the top of the Cyprus standings.The scorer of that vital goal was Rafik Djebbour who expressed his delight via his personal Twitter account and also stated his intention for the upcoming European match.“Victory time for APOEL. I’m so glad for giving a goal to my team. Let’s win again against Ajax! Go APOEL.”last_img read more

first_imgTeam Wellington’s title defence could not have started any better as the men from the New Zealand capital stamped their mark early with a period of controlled possession to move Ba around the pitch, with playmakers Mario Illich and Aaron Clapham in particular dictating terms.After nine minutes, a killer ball from Nathan Hailemariam unlocked Ross Allen, whose cutback was steered home by Aaron Clapham to give the reigning champions an early advantage.Allen went from provider to finisher eight minutes later with a predatory strike after  instinctively pouncing on a poor defensive clearance to beat  Ba keeper Josaia Ratu.The sweltering conditions started to take their toll, with a noticeable drop in tempo and despite the occasional attacking probe from the ‘Men in Black’, Jose Figueira’s men went to the break with their two goal lead intact.Ba emerged for the second spell a different team, signalling their intent with an enterprising opening 15 minutes.Their best chance of the half came when Ratu Dau forced an outstanding save from Scott Basalaj, after getting the better of the retreating Illich.Thereafter Wellington were able to soak up the pressure, looking to strike on the break via direct balls into hard running target man Angus Kilkolly but despite creating numerous chances, they were unable to add to the scoreline.Team Wellington coach Jose Figueira was delighted with his players’ effort.“Perfect start for my team, the first game is always so difficult, especially when we are travelling.“I thought today the attitude was number one and professionalism was number two so very happy with the start,” he explained.“You always want to start the game quickly and we did exactly that today and from there we could control the game and manage and the pressure goes onto the other team.“Ba had a very good start to the second half, made life very difficult, but when we dealt with that we maybe could have got a couple of more goals, but look very happy today,” added the Team Wellington coach.His Fijian counterpart Ronil Kumar meanwhile, was left to rue their lacklustre start to the match.“We were too defensive at first and that’s the reason why we conceded two early goals, we didn’t press enough, but we talked with the boys in the break and told them to go back to our game plan in the second half, so from there on they executed the way we wanted play from the start.“Overall I’m happy with my team’s performance, they really worked hard, and especially in the second half they really played the way we planned to play, only the goal didn’t come unfortunately for us, but the boys played really well,” said the Ba coach.In the second Group C match on the opening day Erakor Golden Star were able to exploit Kiwi FC in wide areas early on, but squandered numerous chances through some errant finishing by Elias Silvar Junior and the otherwise excellent Barrry Mansale.That theme continued for the remainder of the first half, as the Kiwi defence, marshalled by the outstanding Andrew Setafano, grew into the game.The passionate and vocal local crowd in their thousands grew increasingly frustrated as the home favourites searched for a goal that would reward their dominance, but the teams went into the break all square.Pressure was relieved in the 58th minute when Mansale was able to spring the offside trap to square for Elias to finish into an empty net.Newly injected substitute Jacky Ruben made it two 12 minutes later after firing home following another Kaltfer Kaltack raid down the left hand flank.The game petered out as injuries started to take their toll on a gallant Kiwi side, who were able to take a number of positives from their solid defensive effort.Erakor coach Benjamin Noel admitted it was a relief to notch up a hard-fought victory against the suborn Samoan visitors.“We have three points no after a very good game against Kiwi, we thank them for their good performance today because they also played really well, they were really tough.“We did face some challenges against them but I think this will help us to take the remaining matches of this tournament very seriously,’ Noel insisted.“The first half we were poor but we improved in the second period, we pressed higher and tried to use our combinations up front but we will need to work on our finishing which was a problem, we learned that we will have to improve the way we combine in front of goal,” he added.Menawhile, Kiwi FC  Assistant coach Ansheil Kumar said his young players will take plenty of positives  from their spirited performance despite the defeat.“We knew that Erakor was the home team and they were well prepared for this and they had the home advantage and as far as our team goes we were a bit undermanned with a small squad of players but we still gave our best, so we are happy with the result.“I’m really proud of my players, obviously most of them are really young some of them are as young as 16, others are 18 and 19, and for some of them this is their first OFC  Champions League tournament  so we are happy with both the result and the performance,” said the Kiwi FC assistant coach.last_img read more

first_imgAnd while much focus centers around the La Salle juggernaut-style offense, Lancers goalie Christa Athur also had a quietly efficient game. The junior finished with four saves, three of which came in the third period. However, while La Salle only scored two goals in the third frame, Athur and company blanked Mayfield (2-9, 1-8) for over 10 minutes. “She has done a great job this year,” Gilbert said of Athur. As usual, Huse led the Lancers in scoring with six goals despite having to sit out large portions of the second and fourth quarter. Junior Olivia Hoffman also chipped in three goals for La Salle. As for Mayfield, the Cubs struggled to contain Huse and the La Salle offense. “When you try to stop Huse, there are other talented girls on La Salle that make plays,” Mayfield coach Lou Mele said. “So you can’t shut her down without opening up opportunities for others.” Despite constantly being under siege, Mayfield goaltender Brittany Banis had a decent contest, finishing with a game-high eight saves. “We’re a pretty young team,” Mele said. “Nearly everyone returns next season, so we should be a much stronger team next year.” The Cubs received a goal apiece from Myrka Lembo, Amy Vergel de Dios and Kat McGinley. “This season it’s not even about winning a championship,” Gilbert said. “It’s about getting respect; the respect these girls feel they deserve.” “We want to head into the playoffs on a roll and avoid getting knocked off in the first round like last year. If we can advance, I’ll be pretty happy.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! “Since the first practice, we’ve been preaching about playing as a team,” Gilbert said. “While (driver) Kara- Leigh Huse is a very talented player, other girls on this team have also stepped up.” One such player is sophomore Chelsea Silvers. The driver scored three of her five goals in the first half, helping propel La Salle to an 11-2 lead at intermission. Silvers’ penalty-throw goal with 2:57 left in the third period gave the Lancers their first double-digit lead, at 12-2. “She’s our second-leading scorer with something like 63 goals,” Gilbert said. “She, like many of the girls on this team, is really starting to look for her own shots.” Secondly, the Lancers (19-1, 11-0), ranked No. 6 in the latest CIF-Sothern Section Division IV poll, remained undefeated in Prep League play over their first two years in league. But what made Gilbert happiest was the overall play of her team, which she feels is primed for a postseason run. center_img SIERRA MADRE- There were several reasons why La Salle third-year girls water polo coach Sara Gilbert was all smiles Thursday afternoon at the Sierra Madre High School pool. For one, Gilbert’s Lancers clinched their second consecutive Prep League title by defeating visiting Mayfield, 16-3. last_img read more

first_imgNoting the trial judge “erred in law,” the Ontario Court of Appeal has overturned the acquittals and issued convictions on 27 sexual and indecent assault charges involving a former Chatham violin teacher.Claude Eric Trachy, now 73, was originally found not guilty in April of last year of dozens of counts of indecent assault, sexual assault, sexual interference and sexual exploitation involving 25 former students dating as far back as the 1970s.The Crown later appealed the decision at a hearing this past May, asking the appeal court to convict Trachy on some of the charges or order a new trial on all of them.“The trial judge erred in law by acquitting the respondent on the sexual assault and indecent assault charges. The evidence establishes that those charges have been proved beyond a reasonable doubt and, but for the error of the trial judge, there would have been convictions,” the Ontario Court of Appeal decision stated.According to previously published reports, court documents filed ahead of the hearing said the complainants, who are now adults, testified they Trachy touched their breasts and had some of them remove their tops while being measured for a shoulder rest.They testified he touched their breasts during this process and often would have them play with their left breasts exposed. Four complainants also alleged he took a plastic mould of their left breasts.In acquitting Trachy at the time, Ontario Superior Court Justice Thomas Carey ruled the former teacher did not touch his students for a sexual purpose. The judge also believed Trachy’s evidence – that measurements were made to help students better play their instruments – to be credible.In its appeal documents, the Crown noted that “no boys, notwithstanding their growth, size or shape, were touched in this fashion.” Neither was Trachy’s daughter, who also played violin, the Crown said.The Crown also said Trachy didn’t have a formula for how the measurement translated into shoulder rest adjustments and had no rationale for how often the girls needed to be assessed.Prosecutors said sexual intention is only a necessary element of some of the charges against Trachy, such as sexual interference, but did not need to be proven for others, such as sexual assault, which only requires the touching be of a sexual nature.The Court of Appeal agreed, stating, “a reasonable observer viewing the respondent’s admitted conduct in touching and manipulating the breasts and nipples of young girls and young women both over and under their clothes would perceive a sexual context to the conduct.“These were largely girls who were in the process of developing breasts, and who were alone with the respondent in a private room with the door closed. Their sexual integrity was violated, regardless of the respondent’s purpose. The acquittals on the sexual assault and indecent assault charges therefore cannot stand.”The decision added the trial judge’s finding of fact that the respondent lacked a sexual purpose is entitled to deference.“The acquittals on the sexual exploitation and sexual interference charges must stand,” the decision stated.The Criminal Code permits an appellate court on appeal from a judge alone to “enter a verdict of guilty with respect to the offence of which, in its opinion, the accused should have been found guilty but for the error in law.”The matter has now been remitted back to the Superior Court of Ontario for sentencing.“The appearance of fairness requires that a different judge of the trial court determine the sentencing,” the decision stated.Defence lawyer Ken Marley, who represented Trachy during the trial phase, said he was surprised by the decision but needed more time to review it.“Obviously, this is going to mean some more local court proceedings involving this case,” said the Windsor lawyer, adding it will be Trachy’s decision as to whether Marley is retained as counsel for the sentencing.Marley said Trachy’s only other avenue to appeal the convictions is the Supreme Court of Canada.He added the Ontario Court of Appeal has ordered convictions in the past, but noted it’s extremely rare.“I’ve been doing defence work for over 25 years now and I’ve never seen this happen,” he said.Marley said he had a chance to speak with Trachy briefly on Tuesday afternoon.“I think he’s as surprised and upset by the Court of Appeal’s decision as I am,” he said, “but he also has been very serious and very respectful of the court process throughout, so I’m sure he’ll comply with whatever the court requires.”Marley said it’s still to be determined how long it will take to arrange a sentencing date. The initial step will be a first appearance in a Chatham courtroom to set that date.“I would imagine it would be some time in the fall. I would be surprised if it went into next year,” he said.One of the complainants, who cannot be named due to an ongoing publication ban, admitted she was still processing Tuesday’s news.“Definitely still in shock, but obviously grateful for the decision,” she said, noting she had felt “further victimized” by the original ruling.Another one of Trachy’s students said she was “beyond relieved,” especially with how the appeal court gave more consideration to the testimony of the complainants.“What had completely baffled us now has now been made right, which is amazing,” she said. “It really is black and white in the eyes of the law.”Another woman said she considered the decision to be both a victory for the survivors and also a beacon of hope to others who have endured similar experiences and want to come forward.She added she hopes to see sexual assault training for judges, believing it is needed for such cases.“We all don’t respond the same, have the same feelings or remember the same details, lack of details, as the next victim,” she said.– With files from Canadian Press and Ellwood Shrevetterfloth@postmedia.comTwitter.com/DailyNewsTTlast_img read more

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Jerry Yang, founder and CEO of Yahoo!, the world’s third most trafficked collection of web sites, yesterday laid out his plan to investors (and in a blog post) to revitalize the company. Yang wants Yahoo! to become the “starting point” for consumers on the Internet — or in other words, return to the portal strategy that made it the most popular starting place for web surfers in the 90s.Yahoo! talked about creating the “sites that help you better manage your life and connect you to what matters most to you.” According to the New York Times Yahoo! is rapidly losing ground to Google as the sort of web starting point that they want to become.“What [Yang’s] fighting against is how much Google has usurped the role of the portal… Google is increasingly winning loyalty for its other services too. It claims iGoogle — its customized home page — is its fastest-growing product. And many sites now say they are getting more traffic from iGoogle than the pioneering My Yahoo service. Gmail, while smaller than Yahoo Mail, is growing faster.” — New York TimesMany think the key for Yahoo! is social networking. I think social networking is something that will exist on the horizon for Yahoo!, but they first need to get their platform strategy in order. As we wrote in July, the platform is the killer app of today’s web and Yahoo! needs to get on board. Words yesterday from Yang indicated that they will be doing just that, opening up more APIs and creating a platform that allows third-party developers to plug into their “starting point” properties.“We have phenomenal technology platforms and data infrastructure, and it‚Äôs time to share. Besides building on open API for critical platforms, we‚Äôre looking at many different ways to open Yahoo!,” wrote Yang. “We‚Äôre excited about what could happen when a motivated community of publishers and developers starts plugging into our most popular services.”That echoes the sentiment we expressed last July, when we said that a Yahoo! platform “should be a major part of their plans going forward.” After the platform, social networking is the next step (this is obviously a reverse approach than the one that sites that were social networks first, such as Facebook, have taken). Yahoo! wants to connect people to what matters most to them — these days that means they will have to figure out how to connect people to one another.
