Mighty Esperance melt African hopes of Tanzania’s Azam

first_imgJohannesburg, South Africa | AFP |Esperance of Tunisia demonstrated why they are ranked 342 places above Azam of Tanzania in Africa by winning 3-0 on Tuesday to reach the CAF Confederation Cup play-offs.The Tunis club, winners of all the CAF competitions except the Confederation Cup, qualified 4-2 on aggregate after suffering a surprise first leg defeat in Dar es Salaam nine days ago.After having a first half goal disallowed for offside in the last 16 second leg, Esperance went ahead three minutes into the second half when Saad Bguir converted a free-kick.Haythem Jouini doubled the lead just past the hour and Fakhreddine Ben Youssef put the overall outcome beyond doubt with a third goal nine minutes from time.An ice cream company sponsors Azam, who were handicapped by the absence of three regulars.Injuries ruled out Ivorian striker Kipre Tchetche, whose round of 32 hat-trick is the only one in the competition this year, and compatriot and centre-back Pascal Wawa.Tanzanian full-back Shomari Kapombe is being treated in Johannesburg for a pulmonary embolism after suffering chest pains.Stade Gabesien were another Tunisian club to reach the play-offs, scheduled for May against CAF Champions League last 16 losers.They also triumphed 3-0 at home against Zanaco of Zambia after coming from behind in the first leg two weekends ago to force a 1-1 draw. Ahmed Hosny, who equalised in Lusaka, scored again midway through the opening half in Gabes.Giant Hichem Essifi doubled the lead soon after and completed the scoring during the second half.Gabesien have won two of six qualifiers and drawn the rest in a first Confederation Cup campaign.Sagrada Esperance of Angola have been equally impressive in securing a play-offs place that was clinched through a 2-0 home win over V Club Mokanda of Congo Brazzaville.Guedes Lupapa scored six minutes after half-time in remote mining town Dundo and Osvaldo ‘Joka’ Palana completed a 4-1 aggregate victory with a last-minute goal.Since losing at home to Ajax Cape Town of South Africa in a preliminary round first leg, Sagrada have been unbeaten in five matches, winning four.The matches in Tunisia and Angola were the first in the 13 years of the second-tier African competition to be officially scheduled for midweek.National associations seeking more weekends for domestic fixtures triggered the change and the second legs of the play-offs and three group matchdays are also set for Tuesdays and Wednesdays.Share on: WhatsApplast_img read more

Petrozzi’s amazing 50-footer wins NSW title

first_img2 Feb 2018 Petrozzi’s amazing 50-footer wins NSW title England international Gian-Marco Petrozzi holed a 50ft eagle putt to win the New South Wales Amateur in Australia on the 37th hole of the final.Petrozzi commented: “It feels absolutely great, especially the manner I did it in. To hole a putt like that and win was fabulous.”The 20-year-old from Trentham Golf Club in Staffordshire had been through highs and lows during the final against Australia’s Jed Morgan. He set off playing great golf, firing on all cylinders and was four up after the first 18 holes before extending his lead to six holes in the afternoon.Then, his putter went cold and his opponent found top form. “We ended up all square after 35 and on the last I managed to scrape a half,” said Petrozzi.“On the play-off hole I had 260 yards to the green and hit a three iron to about 50ft – and then managed to hole that 50-footer for an eagle to win.“I’d been down, it’s the end of a long trip and I was mentally tired and feeling almost beaten before I was beaten. But the golfing gods helped me out and I think I did deserve it in the end – and it was great to do it in that fashion.”Petrozzi continues a great English winning tradition in this event, following Scott Gregory in 2017 and Paul Howard in 2015. “The Australians can have the Ashes but not the NSW trophy!” he joked.Petrozzi has been part of a four-man England Golf squad on a month long tour of Australia, alongside Jake Burnage (Saunton, Devon), David Hague (Malton and Norton, Yorkshire) and Matthew Jordan (Royal Liverpool, Cheshire). Other highlights included Hague’s second place in the Avondale Amateur and his quarter final place in the Australian Amateur.“It’s been a fantastic trip,” said Petrozzi, who is also the Welsh open champion. “I will never forget this.Caption: Gian-Marco Petrozzi with the New South Wales Aamateur trophy, courtesy David Tease, Golf NSW Tags: Australia, Gian-Marco Petrozzi, New South Waleslast_img read more

STABLE NOTES BY ED GOLDEN – SATURDAY MAY 28, 2016

first_imgPatrick Gallagher1340031%31%$112,120 STELLAR WIND WORKS FOR MEETING WITH ‘THE QUEEN’Anticipation is gaining momentum hour by hour for Santa Anita’s Spring Meet showdown between champions Beholder and Stellar Wind in next Saturday’s Grade I, $400,000 Vanity Mile for fillies and mares, three and up.Three-time Eclipse Award winner Beholder, winner of 12 of 13 races at Santa Anita and 16 of 21 overall, eyes her eighth straight victory for Richard Mandella, who trains the six-year-old mare for owner B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm.“She’s doing great, couldn’t be better,” Mandella said of Beholder Saturday morning in the company of Hughes, who will be on hand for the Vanity. Asked tongue-in-cheek if he would take a walkover in the race, Mandella quipped, “That’s one race I could be confident about.”Stellar Wind, three-year-old filly champion of 2015, makes her first start since finishing second by a neck in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Keeneland last Oct. 30. The four-year-old daughter of Curlin worked five furlongs in company Saturday morning under regular rider Victor Espinoza in 59.60. Stablemate Too Fast to Pass was timed in 59.80.“She went good,” said Espinoza of Stellar Wind, whom he has ridden six straight times, all stakes, three of them Grade I’s, since owners Kosta and Peter Hronis purchased the chestnut filly for John Sadler to train over a year ago.“She worked in company and I let her stretch her legs down the lane. It’s been a while since she raced, but she’s ready.“Now she has to against The Queen (Beholder). It should be fun.”Added clocker Toby Turrell of The Yellow Sheet on Stellar Wind: “She’s right on point. She hasn’t missed a beat. Her works have been long, fast and she’s finishing good.”Stellar Wind has never lost at Santa Anita, winning all three of her starts including the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks last April 4.The Vanity is expected to draw a short field headed by the Big Two. Other entrants could include Divina Comedia, Lost Bus, Moyo Honey and Taris.

Nvidia Plans New HQ For Its Expansion Beyond The GPU

first_img12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout nick statt Tags:#AMD#gaming#microprocessors#Nvidia Related Posts center_img 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex… We’re only two months into 2013, but it has already been a big year for graphics-processing giant Nvidia. At the Consumer Electronics Show in January, the company unveiled Project Shield, its first foray into console gaming hardware. And in February, it was revealed that Nvidia is helping the team behind the Ouya, the wildly successful Kickstarter campaign for an Android-based $99 gaming console, max out its Tegra 3 processor.Now Nvidia, which started as a 3-person team 20 years ago, has announced that it’s outgrown its headquarters in Santa Clara, Calif. In a post on the company’s blog, co-founder Jen-Hsun Huang unveiled plans to build a new complex across the street from the current HQ, designed by architecture firm Gensler with a team headed by prominent architect Hao Ko.Losing Ground To AMDIts no secret in the industry that by purchasing rival graphics chip-maker ATI, chip-giant AMD has in recent years been steadily pushing Nvidia out of one of its prime markets – gaming GPUs. The Gamecube, Wii U and the Xbox 360 all went AMD in that respect (and the Xbox 360’s successor will reportedly follow the same path).With the pressure mounting, Nvidia gambled big and moved fast this year, attempting a home-console disruption with its partner Ouya. So far, the plan seems to be working. The Ouya, which runs solely on a souped-up Nvidia Tegra processor, has everyone talking, be it about the system’s launch games or the fact that CEO Julie Uhrman wants to release a hardware update every year. And Project Shield, a strange hybrid device that fits a flip-out screen to a full-sized controller, has generated some well-earned buzz.New Markets?Beyond gaming, Nvidia is also expanding into vehicle add-ons – driver assistance technology, navigation and in-car entertainment hardware – and has its units in space through a partnership with NASA.The new HQ is meant to signify the company’s new aggressiveness – and free up some desks in the old office, which Huang wrote is getting a little tight now that the company has grown to 8,000 employees across more than 40 sites.In a mock-up provided by Gensler, the new office looks like something out of one of the many science-fiction games Nvidia chips have powered over the years. Featuring two large triangular heaps of glass and what looks like a sprawling hedge-filled perimeter, the new design looks flashy enough to represent the company’s confidence. An even cooler reason behind the three-sided geometry: the triangle represents the fundamental building block of computer graphics.last_img read more

Irving doesn’t mention LeBron in his goodbye to Cleveland

first_imgLATEST STORIES Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH “You understand the magnitude of decisions that you make in your life can affect a lot of people all at once,” Irving said in the more than 4-minute video . “And when you get to that point and you understand that the best intentions for you and ultimately to be in your truth, and find out what you really want to do in your life and how you want to accomplish it — that moment comes and you take full advantage of it.“And there are no other ulterior reasons other than being happy and to be somewhere you feel like it’s an environment that’s conducive for you maximizing your potential.”Irving apparently felt it was time to get out from under the colossal shadow cast by James. The pair won an NBA title together — the first for any Cleveland team since 1964 — in 2016, but Irving did not single out James in his video or the accompanying note.When the Cavs first announced Irving’s trade on Aug. 22, James offered praise to his younger teammate on Twitter , saying: “Special talent/guy! Nothing but respect and what a ride it was our 3 years together.”Irving’s comments were his first since the trade. He was sent to the Celtics for All-Star guard Isaiah Thomas, forward Jae Crowder, center Ante Zizic and the 2018 first-round pick Boston acquired from Brooklyn.ADVERTISEMENT Arellano’s Lervin Flores crowned new NCAA slam dunk king SEA Games in Calabarzon safe, secure – Solcom chief In a meeting last month with Cleveland owner Dan Gilbert, Irving said he wanted out.

After the Cavs were beaten by Golden State in this year’s Finals, Irving spoke at length about what it meant to play with James and how much he had learned.But as he closed his video, Irving didn’t acknowledge their relationship.“And to my teammates: crazy stories, crazy experiences and just unbelievable human beings, man,” Irving said. “You all know how this brotherhood goes, man.

We had more energy in our game, character and spirit.”That’s why the crowd applauded at the end. Let’s take this forward.”The Blues did have a goal disallowed by VAR due to an offside, which Lampard was happy to accept after the game.”I like to think we might get a couple in our favour, but you can see Mason is a tiny bit offside,” he added.”We have to get on with it. It is a sad thing for the celebration and the moment but if we are looking for correct decisions that is where we are at. It changes the atmosphere in the crowd, on the pitch. We are slightly deflated and they get a boost. We deserved to be level at that point.” last_img read more
