first_imgEVERTON VS BOURNEMOUTH, GOODISON PARKEverton have won only four home league games – only relegated Villa have won fewer (2) – and they last won in front of their home fans in the Premier League in early February against Newcastle. Since then, Everton have taken one point from a possible 12 at home. Bournemouth have lost four of their last five.NEWCASTLE VSCRYSTAL PALACENewcastle are unbeaten in their last three league games, winning just one, but remain in a perilous position, in 19th spot and a point from safety. Importantly, the two teams immediately above them, Norwich City and Sunderland, have a game in hand. Palace reached the FA Cup final thanks to Sunday’s 2-1 semi-final win over Watford, and while they have 39 points, they need another win to be sure of their top-flight status.STOKE CITY VSSUNDERLANDSunderland have lost just one of their last seven Barclays Premier League game though five have been drawn, including last Sunday’s 0-0 stalemate with Arsenal. Sunderland travel to Stoke having conceded 39 away goals this season. Only Newcastle (41) have let in more away from home. But they have kept three clean sheets in their last four – after conceding in each of their previous 16.WATFORD VSASTON VILLAWatford return to Vicarage Road, where they have both scored and conceded 15 goals. Only Villa, with 14, have scored fewer home goals, but the 15 conceded is two fewer than league leaders Leicester City. Relegated Villa have lost their last 10 league games. The club record for straight defeats is 11, set between March 23 and May 5, 1963.WEST BROM VSWEST HAMOn Monday night, WBA drew 1-1 at Tottenham, a point which takes them 10 points clear of the relegation zone. West Ham, meanwhile, are sixth on 56 points. If they stay there, it will be the Hammers’ highest place since they came fifth in 1998-99. The 57 goals they have now scored is their best return ever in the Premier League, beating their previous record of 56 goals scored during the 1997-98 season.SWANSEA CITY VSLIVERPOOLLiverpool are flying high with three wins and two draws from their last five games in the Barclays Premier League. Swansea are 15th in the Premier League on 40 points, nine points clear of the relegation zone with three games to go. They have scored only 34 goals, 10 fewer than their previous fewest in the Premier League, in 2011-12.last_img read more

Arrest warrant issued for traffic cop

first_imgAn arrest warrant has been issued for a rank attached to the Tactical Services Unit (TSU) of the Guyana Police Force by Chief Magistrate Ann McLennan, after he failed to attend court to answer a charge of obtaining money from road users to drop a traffic charge.Mark Collins and his colleague Chris Brown were summoned to appear in court after they allegedly accepted a ‘bride’ to drop a traffic charge.The court heard that on December 7, 2017, at the Ruimveldt Police Station, while being employed by the state, Collins and Brown obtained a sum of $10,000 from Iyana Hutson as inducement or reward to forego instituting charges against Dwayne Dover for a traffic offence he had committed.On Friday, Collins did not make his court appearance, but Brown appeared. Brown’s attorney, George Thomas, in a submission for bail, told the court that his client is innocent, and is also unaware of the allegations that were made against him.Brown was placed on bail in the sum of $5,000, and the matter was adjourned to August 5.last_img read more

first_imgStudents and faculty members at the University of Guyana (UG) Turkeyen Campus will soon be able to access quick GTT credit on campus, as GTT on Tuesday signed an agreement with the tertiary institution to have a vendor ‘top up’ machine installed there.GTT Sales Manager Richard Das and UG TMC Chairperson, Dr Paloma Mohamed Martin sign the MoU between GTT and the University of GuyanaGTT Sales Manager Richard Das explained the installation of the machine would help strengthen the company’s self-service and 24-hour ‘top up’ programme to some 14,000 persons.After months of negotiations between the two parties, UG Deputy Vice Chancellor (PACE), Dr Paloma Mohamed Martin, who is also Chairperson of the Transitional Management Committee (TMC), expressed delight in the signing of the agreement, and said the installation of the kiosk would go a far way in benefiting those on campus.“We have had a long history of partnerships with GTT since I took office about four to five years ago … We are looking forward to closer and more meaningful collaborations with GTT and we are thankful for this first step,” Dr Martin stated.The Deputy Vice Chancellor explained that the University looked forward to the installation of many more kiosks, since the campus was vast and there was another campus in Berbice. “There is scope for growth, once we are able to test this and see how it is going to work,” Dr Martin said.Das stated that the GTT team would take on the University’s hope to have more kiosks installed at more points on campus.This will be the first GTT ‘top up’ kiosk to be set up at the University by GTT.last_img read more

Tigers pounce on Eagles, 5-2

first_imgThe Tigers led 2-1 at halftime when Davis slid a pass to Paige O’Conner, who finished for a 3-1 lead in the 45th minute. O’Conner returned the favor minutes later by setting up Davis for a goal in the 50th minute for a 4-1 lead. Perhaps the most fitting goal came from the Tigers’ so-called big three. The trio of senior sisters Annie and Kate Thorne and Davis teamed to seal the victory over the Eagles, a result they were hoping for last season when they lost in the second round of the playoffs to Monrovia on penalty kicks. Kate Thorne’s long throw-in was headed backward by Annie Thorne to Davis, who knocked in a right-footed shot for a 5-1 lead in the 58th minute. The Tigers (12-2-5) will play No. 2 seed Mayfair, a 3-0 winner over Riverside Poly, in the quarterfinals Thursday on the road. “We changed our lineup to put more players in attack, and it’s creating a lot of opportunities,” said Davis, who scored her third and fourth goals of the playoffs. “(Freshman) Michelle Stathatos has been a huge help up front, and so has Liz Bridges. It’s so much fun when we’re attacking and scoring goals like this.” PASADENA – For a team that has struggled to score goals most of the season, the Westridge girls soccer team is attacking with a vengeance in the playoffs. Katie Davis had two goals and an assist for the Tigers, who blew past visiting Pac-7 League champion Arroyo Grande 5-2 on Tuesday in the second round of the CIF-SS Division III playoffs. center_img The three senior captains were winning balls all over the field in making it clear they’re not ready to hang up their jerseys. “We don’t want it to end,” Davis said. “Since our freshman season, we’ve never been to the quarterfinals, so it’s a big deal for us.” Tigers coach Jason Windass predicted early in the season that when the goals come, they would come in bunches. Bridges opened the scoring in the 16th minute and Annie Thorne scored 10 minutes later for a 2-0 lead.

Guard killed in Texas prison break

first_imgOne of the prisoners, John Ray Falk, was recaptured within the hour. The second, Jerry Martin, was found several hours later hiding in a tree after a manhunt that included a helicopter, Stetson-hatted lawmen on horseback and bloodhounds. Martin and Falk were working outside the Wynne Unit of the Texas Department of Criminal Justice just north of Huntsville when they overpowered the officer about 10:30 a.m. along Interstate 45, took her weapons and stole a Huntsville city truck that was nearby, corrections department spokesman Jason Clark said. “They ran over the officer,” Clark said. “We can confirm she did die.” The guard, Susan Canfield, 59, had been a corrections officer for seven years, Texas Department of Criminal Justice spokeswoman Michelle Lyons said. After the inmates took the truck, they at some point stole another vehicle and ditched it, too, Lyons said. Martin, 37, had been imprisoned since 1997 and was serving a 50-year sentence for attempted murder. Falk, 40, had been serving a life sentence since 1986 for murder. Based on his record in prison, Martin was classified as a minimum security inmate and assigned to do field work outside the prison under supervision. “In this case, obviously, something went wrong,” Lyons said. She said Martin did not appear to be hurt, and would face felony escape charges “at the very least.” The Wynne Unit, established in 1883, is one of the oldest in the Texas prison system. It holds about 2,600 inmates of various custody levels.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!
