Tottenham secure first ever WSL win as Rachel Furness penalty downs Liverpool

first_imgRACHEL FURNESS fired Tottenham to their first victory in the top flight of women’s football.Her penalty in first-half injury-time secured a 1-0 home win over Liverpool.1 Rachel Furness stepped up and scored the penalty for TottenhamCredit: Getty – ContributorThe Northern Ireland midfielder coolly slotted the ball into the bottom left corner after sending Reds keeper Anke Preuss in the opposite direction.It was enough to see Spurs bounce back from their loss against Chelsea last week.Furness, who was brought down by Becky Jane, said: “I was running into the box and didn’t see her coming and she’s made contact.“I guess I didn’t expect it because I hit the floor.“Our penalty taker was on the bench but I felt confident so I stepped up and put it away.“We are a newly promoted side and it’s really important to get points on the board early.“It’s our first home game so I’m really happy with the three points.”The penalty was not the only dramatic moment in the match.Irish defender Niamh Fahey — who gave away the ball that led to the penalty — was sent off  to the sound of mild pantomime boos from the Tottenham fans. Rosella Ayane was making a sprint for goal on 64 minutes after pinching the ball from Fahey, who then toppled her.Tottenham next face  Reading — from where Furness is on loan — on Sunday  in the group stages of the Women’s Continental League Cup.And head coach Karen Hills is expecting the tie to be an interesting one.She said: “Reading are a fantastically well- established side.“They have some amazing players and we know it’s going to be a tough and challenging game.“We’ll look at ourselves, analyse and reflect, and make sure all our players are ready and geared to take them on.”Elsewhere, Pauline Bremer fired Manchester City to a 2-0 win over Reading to maintain their 100 per cent record.The German forward, 23, scored both goals at Adams Park.That made it four  in a week  for  Bremer after her double in the Citizens’  7-1 Champions League rout of Lugano.MOST READ IN SPORT THROUGH ITRobbie Keane reveals Claudine’s father was ’50-50′ in coronavirus battle’I ACCEPT’McGregor accepts Silva fight at UFC catchweight of 176lbs in huge super-fightTOP SELLERGavin Whelan has gone from League of Ireland to David Beckham’s InstagramExclusiveRIYAD RAIDMan City’s Riyad Mahrez has three luxury watches stolen in £500,000 raidPicturedA CUT ABOVEMike Tyson shows two-inch cut ‘picked up in training’ ahead of boxing returnPicturedAN EYEFULMeet Playboy model and football agent Anamaria Prodan bidding to buy her own clubI SAW ROORodallega saw Rooney ‘drinking like madman’ & Gerrard ‘on bar dancing shirtless’NEXT STEPJonny Hayes set to move to English Championship having been let go by CelticIT’S…NOT TOMMY BOWETommy Bowe discovers someone has been impersonating him on TinderMAC DADDYTriple H wants McGregor v McMahon with winner getting rights to billionaire strutShe said: “I’m enjoying every minute on the pitch and it feels even better to score.

Bandits rob, terrorise 2 separate families

first_imgIn less than three days, bandits have brutalised members of two separate families, robbing them and carting of millions in cash and jewellery, leaving their victims distressed and in pain, and vowing to pack up and leave.The first family which was robbed and terrorised is the Vanpat’s, of Liliendaal, East Coast Demerara (ECD), who bandits assaulted last Thursday evening. In fact, wife and mother, Carol Vanpat, was home with her 14-year-old son when the three masked men struck.Speaking to Guyana Times on Tuesday, Vanpat said it was only 10 minutes after her husband left around 21:00h on Thursday that two armed and masked men mounted her veranda using a construction ladder. The third bandit entered through the door which was opened for him by one of his accomplices.Vanpat said her sister had just two days before arrived from Canada with her two young children and had decided to visit a friend in Enmore, ECD. She left sometime around 15:00h that day and it was around 21:00h that her husband left to collect his sister-in-law from the Enmore residence.“I think we were being trailed,” she said. “Maybe they were trailing us since the day she came,” the frustrated woman said. She explained that upon entering the home, the men gun butted her, causing a huge laceration to her head from which blood oozed.“The whole house was sheer blood; my son’s jersey was sheer blood and my pants”, she said, as she relived the dreaded experience. The woman recalled that after being hit with the gun, she fainted as she “was losing a lot of blood.”She said she was then held and the bandits turned to her 14-year-old son, who they ordered to go find the money, lest his mother’s throat be slit. She said the child immediately went in search of the money and came out with an undisclosed sum of cash she had withdrawn from the bank to carry out repairs to her house. Her son was also severely beaten by the bandits.They bandits also reportedly took CDN$5000 which belonged to her sister, she and her son’s cellphones, cameras and some artificial gold jewellery worn by her niece. The bandits then made good their escape on foot.Vanpat said the Police were contacted and they immediately went in search of the men, as her son was able to track their location using his computer since the men had his cellphone in their possession.The frustrated woman, in tears, said she could not stand to live in Guyana any longer with her life and that of her family threatened. She said she and her family will have to leave in order to feel safe.Meanwhile, another family was on Monday evening robbed and the ordeal was very much similar to that endured by the Vanpat family.Fifty-two-year-old Bhim Singh, of 17 Block R Sophia, Greater Georgetown, said he and his family had just returned from a wake on Monday evening when they were greeted by three masked men who seemed to have been waiting in the yard.“As soon as I get out my car, I was confronted by the men”. He said he was gun butted across his forehead, leaving a nasty laceration. Before carting off with $48,000 in local currency and CDN$1180 and $300,000 worth in gold, the men reportedly went into the house and “beat up” Singh’s wife and daughter. The bandits then escaped on foot.Singh said he then summoned the Police who arrived on the scene “less than five minutes after” the call was made.This is not the first time the family has endured such a tragedy. In July 2013, the businessman said his family was robbed in a similar fashion. He too is tired of the situation and is again calling on the authorities to hasten the issuance of his firearm licences. The Police up to press time were still continuing their respective investigations into the two robberies.last_img read more

Criminal Lawyer Jason Doe Solves: The Case of the Culpable Father

first_imgA fawn-colored light streaked here and there with tints of deepest orange. It was like multicolored weather that appeared when there was a visit of a rainbow.Inside the courtroom, a fever of enthusiasm filled defense lawyer Jason Doe when he said, “You definitely want justice for the victim, don’t you?”“Yes,” the victim’s father, Johnson Kollie said with a grin.“Have you thought about the possibility that this man, Leslie Solo, the defendant might not be the one who is responsible for the crime he is being accused of?”“I don’t have to think about that.”“But you want justice for your son?”“Absolutely.”“And your son was not living with you before his death?”“Yes.”“And it was not because he wanted to live by himself but because you did not want him to live with you?”“That was our family matter.” The prosecutor rose to object but changed his mind and frowned.“You asked him to leave your house and that particular night you threw his belongings out of the house?”Prosecutor Rufus Teah shouted, “Your Honor, this is too much. What has that got to do with his son’s murder?”Leaning closer with his arms on the bench, Judge William A. K. Jeboh glared at Jason Doe and said, “Will counsel justify his line of cross-examination?”Jason Doe smiled and turning swiftly to the judge said, “I am trying to reveal the entire circumstances that in desperation caused the tragic death at his own hands.“I am also trying to show how culpable the father is in the events that led to, unfortunately, the young man’s death.”“Very well,” Judge Jeboh said, “you may continue.”“Thank you, Your Honor,” Jason Doe said, and turning to the witness in the box, said, “You loved your son like any good father would?”“Yes, I loved him.”“And because you loved him,” Jason Doe said, “you were prepared to do as much as you could in his interest.”“Yes.”“And even though there have been witnesses who have testified that you are an excellent father, they never told the Court about your periodic fights at your house with him, along with the woman who lives with you?”“Families have problems here and there.”“While that is true, those witnesses did not know that despite their claim of your love for him,” the lawyer said, “you were FORCEDconstraint to throw your son’s things, including his clothes out of a house you have given him and had resided for the last five years.”“It was poor judgment on my part.”“You did not tell the prosecutor that when you asked him to leave the house after you threw his things out of the house,” the lawyer said, “neighbors were good enough to steal everything you threw out, did they not?”“I don’t think so.”“You don’t think about what?”“I…I…I…,” the witness stuttered and shifted his position.“Please remember you are under oath, to tell the truth.”“Yes.”“All the things that belonged to your son were stolen by neighbors while you stood there, did you not?”“Yes.”“What was the reason you asked him to leave and did not give him at least a month to leave the house?”“Mr. Doe,”’ the witness said, “my son has been murdered by that man,” he pointed his finger defendant Leslie Solo, the Good Samaritan who took the victim in, after he was thrown out of his house, “and I’m sure the law will give me justice.”“That’s the objective of this Court,” the lawyer reminded him, “but at the same time circumstances that led to your son’s death indicate your own negligence about the son you claimed you love and on whose untimely death you are here accusing a man who rescued your son.”“Parents can have disagreements with their children.”“You were one of the first persons to be at the remains of your son’s body?”“Yes.”“What was in the hands of the decedent?”“The decedent held firmly in his folded arms several sheets of paper.”“And the sheets were from a book that you owned, is it not?”“Yes.”“And you told the police that the decedent had apparently stolen from a neighbor?”“Yes.”“Who did you have in mind as the one that your son might have apparently stolen from?”“I am not sure I can remember what I said.”“But you told the police your son you claimed you loved had stolen from someone?”“I think…”“No, don’t think,” the lawyer interrupted him, “just tell me what you told the police.”“I had always kept money in that particular book,” the witness said, “and someone stole the book from my house.”“So was it the fact that your son allegedly stole from a neighbor as you indicated to the police?”“I was simply confused.”“And you told a lie to incriminate your son?”The prosecutor was on his feet, “This is not proper cross-examination, not sufficient background laid.”“Sustained,” the judge declared.Jason Doe smiled and rephrased his question.“The truth was that your son did not steal anything from you?”“I had the impression that he did.”“Tell the Court about your intention to provide such negative about your son?”The witness shifted his position again and all the spectators stared at him.“It was a pure assumption.”“And you assumed that your son stole from you and also from someone?”“I was simply confused and not to myself,” the witness said, “though he was one of the few that visited the house.”“And the torn book belonged to you and not to a neighbor as you told the police?”“Yes,” he responded, lamely, and a titter among the spectators dealt a lasting blow to the witness claim.The lawyer allowed his answer to sip through the Court and then walked to the defense table and pawed through some papers and, returning to the witness, said, “Did your son have the habit of stealing things from you?”“No.”“Was there any evidence that he stole the book?”“He was indebted to someone in the amount of USD1, 000.00 and therefore when the book and the money disappeared, I assumed that he was the one.”“How much money was hidden in the book?”“About USD3, 000.00.”“But he denied it?”“What else could he have said?”“But he denied it,” the lawyer repeated,   “is your answer yes or no?”“Yes,” the witness said, embarrassed.Jason Doe allowed the witness answer to sip through the spectators and then change his of questioning.“Are you presently married, Mr. Kollie?”“I am a bachelor.”“But you have a live-in girlfriend?”“Does it have anything to do with his?”“Is that your answer?”“Well,” the witness said, “I have a live-in girlfriend.”“Felicia Zoe is her name?”“Yes.”“Is she still in Monrovia?”“She has traveled abroad to buy goods.”“And that means she took along a considerable amount of money for the trip.”“Yes.”“Will you please tell the Court the feud that erupted between you and your live-in girlfriend a week before your son’s death?”The witness lowered his head and began to fret with his hands. The brief silence was filled with the echoes of the ceiling and standing fans rattling on their hinges, as they swept to and fro across the room.With a frown, Jason Doe went for the kill, when he said, “Is it not a fact that on March 22 you accused your live-in girlfriend of ‘stealing’ your money for a young man that you suspected she was going out with?”“Yes.”“On March 30 just before her trip to Nigeria, did you not find concealed in her bag an amount of USD3,000.00 along with a note or a letter allegedly written by her lover requesting for money, as she had promised him?”“Something like that.”“Is it yes or no, Mr. Kollie?”“Uhuh.”“Could that money not be the missing USD3, 000?”“It could be the money or not the money.”“On the night of your son’s death,” the lawyer continued, “which was on April 4, did you not shadow your live-in girlfriend when she reportedly visited her lover, who happened to live in the same vicinity of your son, that is in Sinkor around 14th Street.”“Uhuh.”“Is that yes or no?”“Yes, I was trying to find evidence against her.” A ripple of laughter filled the room.But suddenly, the witness began to perspire. The lawyer was not done with him and moved to burst the case wide open.“Isn’t it true that due to your intense jealousy when you hid around your live-in girlfriend’s lover’s house which was about 11:30 p.m you by accident encountered this man who you thought was your girlfriend’s lover but incidentally was your son?”“It was fate,” the witness said and covered his face with his two hands.Jason Doe said, “Perhaps it was a chance meeting but you assumed it was the man who was going out with your girlfriend and as a result, you assaulted him by knocking him dead.”“Oh Your Honor,” the prosecutor whined, “this is getting too much,” but the judge raised his right hand to silence him, urging the witness to answer the question.“I was not to myself.”“So jealousy consumed you to the point that you were prepared to kill another?”“I had intended to only find out the information and then leave her.”“But you could not control your emotion after you found the information and allowed your jealousy to dictate to you to kill your son.”“I did not know it was him.”“You did not know it was who?”“My son.”The lawyer grinned and said, “So instead of doing the reasonable thing by leaving your girlfriend, you chose to kill that incidentally turned out to be your son.”Tears filled the witness eyes, and he fought them back with a white handkerchief.“Please help me,” he said, as his face darkened and his eyes narrowed slightly.“And still unaware that the victim was your son, a book he had taken from your house to do research for a project he had initiated, and assuming that his attacker wanted the book, he had held it till you bashed him to death?”“Please tell him to stop because I am losing my mind.”Jason Doe’s forehead knitted into a perplexed frown as he turned swiftly and smiled, before strolling to his table. He grinned at the defendant, whose spirits had apparently been elevated by the blistering evidence that had vindicated him.Judge Jeboh, also grinning, said, “It is shocking the level a man can go to vent his jealous anger and concoct a plot to involve the innocent.“This case has underscored one of man’s inherent deficiencies in his affair with the opposite sex and while this case is horrible, the Court is pleased that an innocent man was not prepared to face a trial that would have exhausted his joy as a free man.“The court appreciates the forthrightness of defense lawyer Jason Doe and now stipulates that the witness must now be held since there is a probable cause to begin his trial for crying wolf in his attempt to let someone carry his load.“At the same time,” Judge Jeboh went on, “the Court orders the defendant released.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

3rd dead bandit identified as Kitty resident

first_img…5-year-old victim to receive counsellingPlans are apace to provide counselling to the five-year-old boy who witnessed the shoot-out between Police and three armed bandits on Thursday night.Dead bandit: Leslie GriffithThis is according to a senior Police official close to the investigation who told Guyana Times on Friday that the Guyana Police Force (GPF) will be taking the necessary steps to ensure that the traumatised child receives “proper and adequate” counselling after being subjected to such a “horrible ordeal.”Meanwhile, Police have since identified the third bandit as Leslie Griffith, 24, of Lot 165 William Street, Kitty, Georgetown. The man was identified when his mother turned up at the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) morgue on Friday.Griffith, along with Junior Nurse of Albouystown, and Shawn Browne Jr were all killed during a shootout with Police at a house at Norton and Victor Streets, Lodge on Thursday evening. Browne Jr is the son of the prison escapee Shawn Browne. Browne Sn was Guyana’s most wanted criminal and was among three men killed on June 5, 2003 at a house in Prashad Nagar, Georgetown, in which three grenades were lobbed at the Police.Dead bandit: Shawn Browne Jr son of Guyana’s most wanted criminal, the late Shawn BrowneOn Thursday, the three bandits swooped down on the residence of construction worker, Neville Lesley, moments after he had put his five-year-old son to bed.Reports are at about 20:00h, while the man was closing the doors to his Lot 46 Norton and Victor Streets home, he saw someone scaling the fence but by the time he reacted, he was held at gunpoint. The gunman demanded gold and cash as he took the man into the house. By that time, the two other gunmen also made their way into the man’s home, with each of them carrying a handgun.Hearing the commotion, the five-year-old child woke up and ran downstairs. “They tell me if I don’t keep me son quiet, they’d shoot me and meh son,” the man related.Lesley said a relative, who recently returned from the United States, is staying at his home and the bandits had enquired about her. However as the robbery was occurring, the Police patrol which was in the area was notified and responded.With the bandits distracted by the Police presence, Lesley and his son managed to escape and hid in one of the bedrooms, where he removed the louvres in the window and lowered his son from the upper flat of the house.The child was safely collected by a Police Officer, and Lesley jumped through the window to safety.Dead bandit: Junior NurseIt was at this point that the shoot-out between the armed bandits and law enforcement commenced. According to information from residents in the area, two of the bandits were shot and appeared to be dead, while the third was also shot but surrendered to the Police.The bodies of the two dead gunmen, along with the injured bandit, were taken to the GPHC but the third man subsequently died while receiving medical attention. The Police have since removed two handguns from the scene with several rounds of spent shells.The killing of these three bandits comes on the heels of three other bandits being killed during a Police shoot-out in Black Bush Polder. Those three men were identified as wanted murder suspects; 32-year-old Kelvin Shivgobin, called “Kelly” of Belvedere, Corentyne, Berbice; Ramnarine Jagmohan of Belvedere Village, who was acquitted of murder; and Sewchand Sewdat, called “One Eye Pappy”, also of Belvedere, Corentyne, Berbice.last_img read more

Hazard inspires Chelsea comeback against Newcastle

first_imgChelsea’s victory, which keeps them third in the Premier League, ought to have been more emphatic but it briefly looked as if they might not collect the three points at all when Newcastle took a surprise lead in the 12th minute.Dwight Gayle chased down his own header and hurried Marcos Alonso into a back-pass which sold his keeper Thibaut Courtois short.Seeking to prevent Jacob Murphy nipping in to round him, Courtois was forced to dive at the Newcastle winger’s feet but succeeded only in pushing the ball back to Gayle, who stroked it into the empty net.The Chelsea response was immediate. Twice they went close before inevitable equaliser finally arrived  after 20 minutes. Alvaro Morata contested a high ball and it bounced off him and dropped towards Hazard, who controlled his half-volley to perfection, driving the ball into the ground and bouncing it into the far corner of the net.That goal settled any anxiety that had been floating around Stamford Bridge and it came as no surprise when the home side took the lead just after the half-hour.Matt Ritchie’s clearing header was neither strong, nor decisive and fell straight to Victor Moses who quickly drilled over a cross that Morata merely had to divert home with his head.Danny Drinkwater, making only his second Chelsea start in the Premier League, was the next to go close with a shot which drifted away from the far post.The second half began as quietly as the first, with only a deflected Hazard shot raising excitement levels among the crowd above the soporific.That was until the 56th minute when the Belgian danced through the centre of the Newcastle defence only to stumble just he approached Karl Darlow in the Newcastle goal.At the other end, Ayoze Perez sent a bouncing shot just wide of the post, his last act before being replaced by Isaac Hayden.If anyone was going to add to the scoreboard, however, it was going to be Hazard. Prepared to drift all over the pitch in search of the ball, he picked it up in his own half after 69 minutes and had Newcastle defenders backpedalling and afraid to tackle lest he skip his way past them.A one-two with Drinkwater ended with the ball agonisingly out of his reach.When his second goal came, it was from the penalty spot, impudently chipping the ball beyond Darlow after Ritchie had brought down Moses.The Newcastle keeper exacted a revenge of sorts moments later when he stuck out a hand to deny Hazard his hat-trick.As if in an act of mercy by Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, that was Hazards last contribution as he was replaced by Willian. Chelsea did not need him by then and may even have won more convincingly had Darlow not blocked Alonso’s goal-bound shot.0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Eden Hazard scored twice in a superb man-of-the-match performance and the Belgian came very close to scoring a hat-trick.

Man United transfer news: stunning signing – 72 goals in 87 games! Video highlights

first_imgGoal machine Radamel Falcao has joined Man United on a season-long loan.The 28-year-old striker’s move from French club Monaco took many by surprise, with United paying £12m for the privilege.It is likely to annoy Arsenal fans, who are keen for the club to buy a new striker after Olivier Giroud’s injury lay off. But Man United have pounced with Gunners manager Arsene Wenger refereeing a charity match in Italy.Falcao has established himself as one of the best scorers in football, producing spectacular efforts with both feet as well as his share of tap-ins and countless headed goals.At Porto he scored 72 times in 87 matches between 2009 and 2011, then 70 in 91 games for Atletico Madrid. Last season he joined Monaco and before being sidelined through injury in January he scored 13 goals in 22 games in all competitions. 1 Man United have signed goal machine Radamel Falcao on loan last_img read more

LAST BLAST OF SUMMER? RENEWED HOPE FOR ANOTHER HEATWAVE

first_imgFORECASTERS are still too nervous to call it for sure – but next week could see another blast of glorious sunshine and temperatures again in the Mid-20s.Met Eireann and MeteoTimes.net now believe a warm spell will arrive around Tuesday or Wednesday of next week.But the different modelling patterns they use to predict the weather are still not certain how long it might last. “Latest indications suggest a spell of rain in some places next Tuesday, but overall indications suggest a good deal of dry bright weather for Wednesday and Thursday,” said Met Eireann.MeteoTimes.net – the irish online weather channel – says it will gradually get warmer and mostly dry with some chance of overnight showers late Monday night into the daytime hours of Tuesday mainly north of a Galway to Dundalk line, possibly becoming quite warm in the south during Tuesday and then in all regions later in the week with highs into the mid 20s.“This warm spell may feature east winds and somewhat cooler readings near the east coast (18-21 C) and warmest weather in west Munster and Connacht (24-26 C). Some models are indicating a rather prolonged warm spell developing and it should be dry and sunny most of that time but details will emerge later.”Fingers crossed!  LAST BLAST OF SUMMER?
