URA head into Friday’s game still unbeaten in the league (file photo)StarTimes Uganda Premier LeagueURA FC vs Nyamityobora FCMandela National Stadium, NambooleFriday, 02-10-2018 @04:00pmNAMBOOLE – URA FC will be hoping to go six matches unbeaten at the start of the 2018/19 Uganda Premier League season when they host Nyamityobora on Friday afternoon.The Tax Collectors have had a fairly good start to the league this season, winning two and drawing three of their first five games.However, Sam Simbw’s side are currently on a two game winless run as they have draw 1-1 against Maroons and 0-0 away to SC Villa in their last two fixtures.Their main concern going into the game should be the fact that they are not scoring enough goals.The Tax scored only four goals in their first five games which falls below average. However, they have been defending well, conceding only one goal and non coming at Namboole.Going into the game, The Tax Collectors have no major injury worries and will be banking on top scorer-Vitalis Tabu to try see them over the huddle.For Nyamityobora, they are in desperate need to start accumulating points as soon as possible if they are to avoid dropping back into the Big League on the first time of asking.James Odoch’s charges have lost a league high four games already this season including a 2-1 loss at home to Police in the last games.Captain Henry Wamala is still out serving an internal suspension and it is still not clear when he will return.However, Nigerian Center-back Calvin Barni Tar returns after overcoming an injury that forced him out of the Police game on Tuesday.Match Facts:This will be the first ever top flight meeting between the two sides.This will be URA’s third match against the newly promoted sides. The Tax Collectors have won the other two, 2-0 vs Paidah and 1-0 against Ndejje University.Sam Simbwa’s side are currently on a nine match unbeaten run which dates back to last season (W3 D6). Their last league defeat was in the 7-2 humiliation at the hands of KCCA in April.At home, they have also been fairly impressive, winning five of their last nine games (D3 L1).For Nyamityobora, they go into the game having won only one of their first five games in the top flight. All the others have culminated into defeats.Odoch’s side have conceded a joint second league high of 9 goals (level with Police Fc ). Only Maroons (10) Have conceded more goals than Nyamityobora.Nyamityobora will be attempting to gather their first point of the season away from home after losing both of their first two.Comments Tags: Nyamityobora FCStarTimes Uganda Premier LeaguetopURA FC

Share Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest 180104_RyanMartinLake effect snow is still a story in NE Ohio today. In fact, we won’t rule out lake snows in these typical areas right on through tomorrow and into the start of the weekend. We can see accumulations north and east of Cleveland, and light snow and flurry action can pop up from time to time over the next couple of days along the south shore of the lake. In general, this action will not make it any farther south than US 20. The rest of Ohio will see mixed clouds and sun, with no major weather issues. A cold front worked in overnight, so we look for colder temps the next couple of days, and subzero temps are not out of the question, particularly tomorrow morning, over northern and central parts of Ohio.Temperatures will moderate dramatically this weekend. Strong south winds kick up later Saturday afternoon and continue through Sunday. Those winds bring temps up ahead of our next system. We expect to see a mostly dry Sunday, with precipitation not starting to nose into western and southwestern Ohio until after sunset Sunday evening. The system brings precipitation in for Sunday night and Monday. We still like a track of the low to the south and east, and we are also seeing a slight decrease in overall total available moisture. We still have action starting as snow Sunday night through Monday morning. There can be some mixing and changeover to rain in the southwest and west central part of the state, Monday morning but an all-out rain event is not likely. As cold air returns behind the cold front, we do not see as much snow potential – moisture is already leaving to the east by that time. We are reducing our total precipitation range to a liquid equivalent of .25”-.5”.The map above shows total liquid equivalent precipitation for the event. The highest end of the range looks to be over southern and southeastern Ohio. This means we see snow in a lot of the state, but should be able to miss out on any absolutely epic snow storm development. Our official snow totals will be out tomorrow morning, but we are leaning toward a 2-5 inch range over basically all of the state.Arctic high pressure comes in behind the front for Monday night through Thursday. This will take temperatures to below normal levels through most of the week. A front slowly works into the northern half of the state for next Friday. Cold air from the north butts up against moderating air over southern Indiana and into southwest Ohio. We expect snows, potentially several inches worth, from I-70 northward, and the best snows actually could be along and north of US 30. Closer to I-70, we may see an attempt at mixing with a bit of rain. Generally, the southern half of Ohio misses out. Liquid equivalent precipitation totals can be from .2”-.4”. Coverage will be at 90% of areas north of I-70.The extended 11-16 day forecast window starts with a nice front around the 14th, but this front has lost a good deal of its moisture. It likely is being robbed by the front for late next week. Still, we can add a little more light snow to the area. Cold air holds through mid-month, but with a strong upper level ridge building over the western US, we think that eventually, we will see a bit of a “thaw” the second half of the month, before another arctic blast takes over.

Touch Football in Australia is going from strength to strength on the back of its partnership with the National Rugby League. The alliance between Touch Football Australia and the NRL occurred in late 2013 and since then the profile of Touch Football has increased dramatically. So much so that a Mixed Touch Football All Stars series like that of the Rugby League will take place on Saturday. The Indigenous Touch All Stars will take on the TFA All Stars at Suncorp Stadium in a two-match series on Saturday, with the latter to be played just prior to the kick-off of the Harvey Norman NRL All Stars fixture. A match will also be played on Friday afternoon to make it a three-match series. Events like Saturday, accompanied with high profile sponsors such as Harvey Norman, are giving the sport the exposure it needs. This exposure is turning into high participation levels and an increasing supporter base. Pathways are now there for talented men and women to turn their Touch Football skills into a career with the NRL.Touch Football requires agility, fitness and speed â€“ all of which are important components of rugby league and NRL clubs are on the lookout for the next fleet-footed superstar.Four-time Touch Football World Cup winner and TFA All Stars representative, Kylie Hilder, says the partnership between the two codes has done wonders for the profile of Touch Football in Australia. â€œIâ€™ve been in the game a long time and itâ€™s only been since the NRL has come on board with the alliance that Touch Football has just gone through the roof,â€ Hilder said. â€œI think people are just starting to realise that Touch Football is not just a game that people might play as a warm up or and off-season game to rugby league. â€œYou need to have skill and be an athlete to play Touch Football at a high level. â€œI really like the fact that the NRL clubs are starting to realise that this partnership is bringing more people to their game as well. Many rugby league players started their sporting journey in the sport of Touch Football. Both Australian international Scott Prince and New Zealand international Shaun Johnson started their careers stepping around defenders in Touch Football competitions. Prince, now retired from rugby league, has returned to Touch Football. A participant in the Indigenous All Stars Touch Football team last year, Prince is now a mentor for the 2016 team.He says the partnership has created opportunities for both men and women to create a career doing what they love. â€œItâ€™s massive. It raises the profile of Touch Football,â€ said Prince. â€œThe NRL has some fantastic supporters and sponsors of it. Itâ€™s been great to see Harvey Norman jump on board with a Touch sponsorship throughout all the platforms. Through the national leagues, the World Cup and now the All Stars week. â€œI think even the fact that the number of pathways that this partnership creates is something special. Whether itâ€™s through the women that move onto rugby league. The boys can push on from Touch and go into the rugby league. â€œItâ€™s an opportunity for players like me who have retired from rugby league who still think they can contribute without the full on conflict and training. That is what makes this partnership so perfect.â€Related LinksNRL All Stars
zoom Dry bulk shipping company Golden Ocean Group Limited (GOGL) has taken delivery of the first two dry bulkers from the batch ordered in March this year.The vessels in question are 2013-built Q Sue and 2014-built Q Kaki, which will now be renamed Golden Sue and Golden Kaki.The batch is comprised of 16 dry bulk vessels which were agreed to be acquired in the form of an all-share transaction where the company would issue in aggregate 17.8 million consideration shares and assume debt of USD 285.2 million.Q Kaki; Image Courtesy: Quintana ShippingOf the 16 vessels to be acquired, 14 will be acquired from subsidiaries of Quintana Shipping, and two ice class Panamax vessels will be acquired from subsidiaries of Seatankers, an affiliate of Hemen Holding, the company’s largest shareholder.To that end, Golden Ocean said that it has issued 1.6 million consideration shares to Quintana Shipping and associated companies in exchange for the two vessels.Following this transaction, the company’s issued share capital is USD 5,843,649.6 divided into 116,872,992 issued shares, each with a nominal value of USD 0.05.The acquired vessels’ average age is four years in line with GOGL’s rest of the fleet. The acquisition comes at a time of very favorable prices of second-hand vessels enticing many owners to venture into fleet expansion.
The Ohio State women’s volleyball team will see postseason action for the second straight year after receiving an at-large bid to the 2010 NCAA Tournament. The Buckeyes will face Atlantic Sun Conference champion Lipscomb (24-6) at 6 p.m. Friday at the Thomas J. Frericks Center at the University of Dayton. “They’re a very good all-around team,” OSU coach Geoff Carlston said. “They run things very fast, they’re efficient and they don’t make a ton of mistakes.” Lipscomb is a change of pace from the big, powerful teams the Buckeyes face in the Big Ten. “They’re a little bit different from the teams we’ve seen because of their speed and how they run their offense,” Carlston said. “They have six or seven just all-around great volleyball players.” The Buckeyes are going to have to tweak their game plan for a new type of opponent, junior middle blocker Kelli Barhorst said. “We’re really going to utilize their left side because they are a shorter, scrappier team,” she said. “We’re going to use our power against them.” The Buckeyes are glad to see the Big Ten gauntlet end but realize that their schedule has prepared them for tournament play, senior outside hitter Katie Dull said. “Every week in the Big Ten, every game it was like, ‘OK, this is the most important match of the season,’” she said. With a record of 22-11 and a sixth-place finish in the Big Ten, making the tournament wasn’t a sure thing for the Buckeyes. Carlston said the selection show was a nerve-racking experience for the team, watching all the schools get picked in front of them before they finally got selected to the last bracket. “It was a very nervous moment for us,” Barhorst said. Carlston said the goal heading into Friday’s match is getting the team healthy. “We’re trying to get everyone healthy this week so we are ready to go at full strength Friday,” Carlston said. The Buckeyes hope that, with the match being close to home, there will be a swarm of scarlet and gray in the stands. “We’ve got the band going, we’ve got a bus or two going, we’ve got Block ‘O,’” Carlston said. “You never know who is going to make the road trip.” If the Buckeyes win Friday, they will advance to play the winner between Horizon League champion Butler (21-9) and Atlantic 10 champion Dayton (27-3) at 5:30 p.m. Saturday.

Barcelona goalkeeper Marc-Andre ter Stegen conceded a late penalty against Sevilla, but later made amends by saving it from Wissam Ben Yedder in injury-timeGoals from Gerard Pique and Ousmane Dembele had given Barcelona a 2-1 lead over Sevilla, after Pablo Sarabia’s ninth-minute opener, on Sunday’s Supercopa de España encounter.But the Catalan squad’s good work in Morocco appeared to have come undone when Ter Stegen conceded an injury-time penalty that could have forced the game into extra-time.However, the German made up for the error by saving Ben Yedder’s spot-kick to ensure that Barcelona got their season off to a winning start.And, speaking after the win, Ter Stegen revealed that he was never going to miss the penalty.Quiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.“I think it’s a penalty, but I can’t move out of the way either,” said the 26-year-old, via Marca.“I’m happy to win this title, the important thing is to win.“We are a team that knows how to win and we must always prove that.”Barcelona will next begin the defence of their La Liga crown against Alaves next weekend.
