The second generation known as “gold” from Senegal is running out of time. They arrived in Cameroon with a stacked squad, but many of their key players are in their late thirties or are already there.

To make matters worse, coach Aliou Cissé is without a host of great players against Zimbabwe, a game he will just want to rule out.

“I was looking at the makeup of our team,” Cisse said. “Compared to our last match against Congo, I can already tell you that we have six indisputable starting players who are not on the squad list: Edouard Mendy, Krepin Diatta, Ismaila Sarr, Nampalys Mendy, Kalidou Koulibaly and Saliou Ciss.

“With six incumbents absent, it is true that it is worrying but we still start the match against Zimbabwe full of confidence.”

All eyes on Mané

Senegal have one of the best – if not the best – teams in the tournament, but they’re going to rely on Mane to some extent, especially considering their covid-19 absences. Fortunately, he is exceptional both when it comes to spotting opportunities and creating them, with his 0.67 expected goals without penalty every 90 minutes being the Premier League’s fourth best (at least 900 minutes played ) this trimester.

“Warriors seeking to shock”

Norman Mapeza’s men enter the game as major underdogs and will be encouraged after their first clean sheet in six as a The “Warriors” drew 0-0 against Sudan in a friendly pre-tournament. Zimbabwe will aim for a second or better third place in their bid to advance to the round of 16.

Brooke Limits Cameron’s Superiority and Advances to Holiday Tournament Final | News, Sports, Jobs https://fsc-clan.org/brooke-limits-camerons-superiority-and-advances-to-holiday-tournament-final-news-sports-jobs/ Thu, 30 Dec 2021 06:12:10 +0000 https://fsc-clan.org/brooke-limits-camerons-superiority-and-advances-to-holiday-tournament-final-news-sports-jobs/

WELLSBURG – Brooke coach Adam Shinsky and his Bruins were well aware of the kind of difference Cameron senior Trevor Beresford could face the Dragons on Wednesday night in the first round of the Brooke Holiday tournament.

So, after playing Beresford on several occasions over the summer, along with a few of his players working with Cameron’s big man, Shinsky and his team have watched enough movies and prepared enough to make their best to get Beresford into a mess.

That mission was more than accomplished with the Dragons star watching a significant portion of the game from the bench, before committing a foul in the fourth quarter, the Bruins leading their guests by a margin of 34-15 with Beresford not on. field.

Seniors Alex Isinghood and Cole Sperlazza totaled 49 points and Brooke overcame a slow start, which only saw the Bruins hitting two of 15 shots in the first quarter, before gaining control in the second quarter and ultimately hanging on. for a fierce 57-46 win over Cameron at Brooke High School.

With the victory, Shinsky’s record 4-2 club advance to tonight’s championship game at 8 p.m. against the mighty Mount Lebanon, who earned a 54-51 overtime win over Bloom-Carroll in the cover lift on Wednesday. Meanwhile, coach Tom Hart’s 2-2 Dragons will face Bloom-Carroll in the consolation game at 6 p.m.

“Alex (Isinghood) and Cole (Sperlazza) were the Valley’s two top scorers last year and both are at the top again this season,” Shinsky said. “But we were expecting them to have a game like this together and (Wednesday) was by far their best combined game so far.

“The kids were upset that we lost our last game and we challenged them to bounce back against Cameron, who has a great little school team and could very easily claim the State Class A championship.

“The kids were very resilient (Wednesday) and I can’t say enough about their play.”

Things didn’t start well for the hosts with Beresford scoring eight points in the first quarter as Cameron led by to 10 before settling for a 16-8 advantage after one. However, as Beresford scored eight points on six shots in the first eight minutes, he managed just one more shot and two runs the rest of the night while battling fouls.

A Nathan Haeberle triple just 23 seconds into the second quarter reduced the visitors’ lead to nine, 19-10, before Brooke’s dynamic duo began to gain the upper hand. The Bruins used a 9-0 run to close the count and after Cole Burkett put the Dragons back in the lead with a basket, Sperlazza emptied a long-range bomb to give Shinsky’s crew the lead for more. good at 22-21.

Isinghood scored nine of his game-high 25 points in the second quarter while Sperlazza had eight of his 24s in the frame, but a third from Chris McCauley reduced Brooke’s lead to just 26-24 at the pause.

As the Bruins kept a 30-29 advantage at 5:14 of the third, Beresford was whistled for his fourth foul and sent back to the bench as the hosts closed on a 13-6 streak to gain the upper hand 43-35 with eight minutes to go.

The fateful fifth personal foul came 2:35 of the fourth with a score of 49-44 as Brooke closed on an 8-2 streak to put things right. Sperlazza has scored eight more points in the past eight minutes, including six of eight charity throws down the home stretch.

“Beresford is a phenomenal player, and we knew that when we arrived”, Shinsky said. “Cole (Sperlazza), Alex (Isinghood) and Ryan (Knox) ​​all train with him this summer and we’ve played him seven or eight times, so we watched the movie and thought we could blame a few … him and we did.

“I also can’t say enough about the job Jason Varner did on him defensively and then after he got on the bench we transferred Jason to (Cole) Burkett and he did a great job as well. on him. He does whatever we ask him to do and then he comes out and gets 13 rebounds as well.

“Our goal when I came here two years ago was to start winning basketball games and we are doing it. We’re at 4-2 right now, but we know we should be 5-1 or 6-0. There is nothing we can do about it, but we have to keep winning. We have a strong team from Mount Lebanon on Thursday and are looking forward to going up the hill to Wheeling Park next week.

Brooke returned the ball 14 times, nine behind the Dragons, but was passed by a margin of 26-24. The Bruins had just three starters, and four players in total, scored in the evening. Burkett and Lance Hartley each scored 12 points for Cameron while Beresford finished with 10. Hartley also registered eight rebounds, a record for the team.

“I felt like a Trevor (Beresford) had made a few faults in the first half that were his own, but the last couple they called was another story,” Hart commented. “But we just didn’t execute our attack. Even with him off the ground, we still have the length and size, but we didn’t box and gave them too many second chance points. We knew that when we got there we had to win the 50-50 balls and get some rebounds and the fact that we didn’t was a huge difference.

“We moved the ball well inside at the start of the game, getting good penetration, but we weren’t doing open shots and looking to pass instead, which is a lack of focus and execution.

“But overall it’s a great experience for us. When we were invited to this we knew the competition was going to be good and the schools were going to be big. We will learn from this tournament and it will make us much better in the long run. “

Cameron actually had one more field goal than Brooke, 20-19, but the Bruins had 16 of 24 on the line while the Dragons had just three of eight.

Online racists could be banned from football matches for up to ten years https://fsc-clan.org/online-racists-could-be-banned-from-football-matches-for-up-to-ten-years/ Sun, 26 Dec 2021 15:17:00 +0000 https://fsc-clan.org/online-racists-could-be-banned-from-football-matches-for-up-to-ten-years/

People who send racist slurs at online footballers could be banned from attending matches for up to ten years, the home secretary said.

Priti Patel has announced that the football ban orders, intended to prevent disorder in matches by banning those deemed to be at risk, will extend to hate crimes online.

The decision came in the wake of the Euro 2020 final, when England players Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Bukayo Saka received a wave of racist abuse on social media after the game.

Ms Patel told the Mail on Sunday: “We saw the beautiful game marred with shameful racism from online trolls, who hid behind their keyboards and abused our footballers.

“Racism is unacceptable and football has been marred by this shameful prejudice for too long.

“Those responsible for appalling racist abuse online must be punished. The changes to the law that I am announcing will mean that they will be banned from attending football matches. “

Culture Secretary Nadine Dorries added: “The racist abuse that floods footballers’ social media feeds is having a profound impact on everyone involved in the game and it must stop.”

The Police, Crime, Sentencing and Courts Bill will be updated to include the new policy in early 2022.

Prime Minister Boris Johnson has vowed to put the legislation in place after the tournament in July, saying he “is appalled at the heinous abuse directed at a number of our footballers following Sunday’s game.”

Mr Johnson was under fire at the time for not doing enough to defend players against racism. Social media platform Instagram has also come under fire for allowing more than 94% of racist accounts to remain active.
