We didn’t really know how we would match up with them,” said Titan co-coach Luke Greenwood. Even though the team struggled early on, he was very happy with the result. “We knew we had the athletes, we have good athletes,” he said. Greenwood credited the defense with stepping up and making plays when the offense was struggling.Sedan didn’t have much luck moving the ball in the second half.“That is what we talked about during the week,” Greenwood said. “If one area is struggling, another area has to step up.” Early on Argonia-Attica moved the ball but had trouble hanging on. In the first quarter the team threw an interception near the goal line. On the next play a nice completion was fumbled on the goal line. Both of those turnovers led to Sedan getting the ball on its own 1, but both times the Titan defense recorded a safety.Earlier in the quarter the teams traded touchdowns, but with the safeties, Argonia-Attica led 10-6 at the end of the first quarter.Sedan drove deep in to A&A territory in the second. A fumble and a bad snap ended that drive.Before halftime A&A got a 17-yard scoring run from Alec McDaniel and Jacob Norris scored from 14 yards out on a reverse to give the Titans a 26-6 lead at the half.From there it was all Argonia-Attica as the offense had found its groove and the defense never let up.Sedan’s only score from that point was a 78-yard kickoff return by Hunter Cummings.Argonia-Attica rolled up 196 yards of offense and held Sedan to 23 in the second half, while scoring 30 points.In the third quarter, Devon Newberry scored on runs of 30 and 24 yards. He had 81 yards on five carries in the second half alone, and had 85 for the game.In the final quarter, McDaniel passed 10 yards to Norris for a touchdown, and Mason McDaniel added a touchdown on a three yard run very late.McDaniel had 62 yards rushing on 18 carries, and completed seven of 11 passes for 76 yards.Argonia-Attical finished with 307 yards and held Sedan to 106.Argonia-Attica travels to Dexter to play another merged team the Spartans of Dexter-Cedar Vale next week.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

Commonwealth Games to restore Australia’s reputation, say organisers

first_imgMark Peters, GOLDOC chief executive, said “we are all devastated and gutted” by events in South Africa.“Everyone in Australia and round the world is working to get back to what the great values are — fair play, equity. It’s winning when you get within the white lines, within the rules.”In a possible dig at the nation’s cricketers, who have made a string of public apologies, Peters added: “Every time an athlete talks we will see a genuineness and we will see people talking about what’s good around sport.”Adding to the upbeat message ahead of Wednesday’s opening ceremony — when rain is forecast — Beattie said: “We are ready. Not every event that has been held in the last 100 years has been able to say that, but we are ready.”Organisers have added an extra 40,000 seats in recent weeks in response to strong demand, they say, after some of the most popular events sold out.Share on: WhatsApp Gold Coast, Australia | AFP | Bullish hosts Australia said the Commonwealth Games will restore the country’s battered sporting reputation on Saturday after a cricket ball-tampering scandal which drew criticism from around the world.Sport-mad Australia’s image took a bruising after a plot to alter the ball was revealed in a Test match against South Africa, an offence which triggered an outpouring against Australia’s hard-nosed cricket team.It comes just days before the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast and Peter Beattie, chairman of local organisers GOLDOC, said: “Cricket has obviously damaged our national standing but the Commonwealth Games will restore it, very simply.“Because the measures that have come in for drug-testing means these will be the cleanest Games, they’ll be friendly Games and at the end of it our reputation globally will be restored.”Beattie was speaking hours after David Warner, former vice-captain of Australia’s beleaguered cricket team, broke down in tears and apologised for his role in the cheating conspiracy.last_img read more

23 youths certified in boat construction

first_imgThe Board of Industrial Training (BIT) has certified 23 youths from Baracara in Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) in boat building, after they would have completed a four-month training programme to that effect.The constructed boat which was donated to the communityA 30-foot wooden boat, which was built by the students, was donated to the residents within the community, along with a 75 horsepower engine to assist residents with their daily transportation.In addition to the construction skills which they would have acquired, the participants received courses in Mathematics, English, Microenterprise, Sexual Reproductive Health, and Operational and Health Safety.BIT Chairman Clinton Williams remarked that this was made possible through the National Training Programme for Youth Empowerment (NYTE) programme, which was launched in 2006 with the objective of providing technical and vocational training to at-risk youths.“The programmes are introduced to every region in Guyana and are designed to target vulnerable groups, such as school dropouts and youths from depressed communities,” Williams said.He estimated that by the end of this year, a total of 2500 persons would’ve been trained in areas such as, forestry, home economics, health sciences, mechanical and introductory engineering, garment construction, information communication technology (ICT), catering among other fields. Throughout this time, they have managed to extend these programmes across other public institutions.“We have expanded our relationship over the years by using all five of the Government Technical Institutes, two Industrial Training Centres, GuySuCo Training School at Port Mourant, the Forestry Training Centre and other recognised Non-Government Organisations and privately-owned workshops,” the Chairman related.This boat building project was the first of its kind for Region Six and materialised to transform the lives of residents. The vessel will serve the residents of the small farming village in transporting agriculture produce to the coastland, since farming is the community’s main economic source.Williams disclosed that in the near future, collaborative efforts will be in placed between his organisation and US-oil giant ExxonMobil to roll out three boat building programmes in other riverine communities along Regions Six and Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam). This is part of the plan to fill the gap in demanded technical skills and transportation logistics.The Board has extended an invite to various stakeholders for collaboration to offer vocational training to persons who are differently-abled. Last June, 128 persons were trained in computer repairs, job access, Job Access with Speech (JAWS) Programme, cosmetology, computer skills training, leather craft, rope mat making, basic sewing and wood working.last_img read more
