Soccer Auckland City FC confirmed themselves as the winners of Group C in the OFC Champions League and booked a home quarterfinal with a hard-fought 1-0 victory over 10-man Lautoka FC at Trusts Stadium on Saturday. The defending champions will now host Papua New Guinea’s Lae City Dwellers or one of the Solomon Islands duo of Solomon Warriors or Marist when the draw for the April 7-8 quarterfinals is made on Monday at OFC headquarters. As group runners up, Lautoka will travel to Papeete, Port Vila or Wellington to face AS Dragon, Nalkutan or Team Wellington – the winners of the other three groups. Meanwhile in a battle between Group C’s two previously winless teams, Tahiti’s AS Venus edged Madang FC from Papua New Guinea 2-1 to finish the tournament on a relative high note. It took Auckland City until the 70th minute to break down a well-organised Lautoka defence with Emiliano Tade finally breaking the deadlock from a Daniel Morgan cross. It was a stark contrast to lop-sided wins in their first two matches with Fijian champions Lautoka offering a sterner test, even after going down to ten men a few minutes before halftime when Arami Manumanubai lashed out at Darren White in an off-the-ball incident. Auckland City coach Ramon Tribulietx was pleased to secure a home quarterfinal and said he expected the match to be as tough as it was, especially after an intense week. “Lautoka are a good team. They dropped off and parked the bus so that’s always going to make life difficult and they’ve got players that can hurt you on the counter,” he said. “For us it was a matter for keeping dominating with patience, not getting frustrated and just wait to see if we could score one. When we got the goal, and even when they got the player sent off, things changed.” Lautoka coach Kamal Swamy had to balance the desire to win the match with concerns about a number of players sitting one caution away from missing the quarterfinal but took heart from the way the players he brought in responded. “Auckland are the defending champions and had the home advantage and of course we missed five key players in the starting line-up because of the yellow cards and the reserves played very well,” said Swamy. Swamy said that despite the defeat, the promising performance gives them some hope looking ahead to the last eight of the competition. “Of course yes we are positive about it and we know we have a good side and with these reserve players performing now we have known that we have equally good players on the bench.” In the early kick off, Venus drew first blood through a 12th minute goal from captain Teaonui Tehau who wrong-footed goalkeeper Charles Lepani before passing the ball into an empty net. Neil Samuga Hans drew Madang level from the spot in the 29th minute but Tehau struck again in second half injury time to give Venus coach Sam Garcia something to smile about. “I’m happy today and I’m proud of the players for this game and during the whole tournament. “It’s a young team and we came here to improve and to represent Tahiti football well. “I think we have progressed. We haven’t qualified but we leave a better a team.” Madang coach Maurie Wasi was naturally disappointed to leave without any points despite some promising performances, at time with a skeleton squad. He hopes his side can get another bite at the OFC Champions League in the future. “We are good enough to go back and qualify again for next year but we need to fix a lot of thing at the club and organise things professionally. We’ll try to get back next year with a strong enough squad and good preparation to really try to have a go at it,” he said.
Murray celebrated his 33rd birthday two months ago, and due to his advanced age and current coronavirus break, he thinks his best days in grand slam tournaments may be numbered. According to the three-time grand slam winner, the tennis player is already old. Nevertheless, he still wants to return to the courts.The Dunblane native played the last grand slam singles match at last year’s Australian Open, after which he announced that he was probably ending his career. However, the second operation of the problem hip gave him hope, after half a year he jumped into the tennis carousel again, and even celebrated the title in the hall in Antwerp.However, other health problems arose and Murray did not manage to return this year before the coronavirus break, which has lasted since March. He planned another comeback in March at the Masters in Miami, but became the second canceled event due to a coronavirus pandemic.Two days ago, the famous Wimbledon was to end, and Murray regrets that this year’s home grand slam was canceled without compensation. He himself does not know how many times he will look at grand slams as an active player. “I’m an old tennis player, so it’s not nice to lose big tournaments. You can never know how many times you’ll play the biggest tournaments. Of course I’m sorry we lost Wimbledon this year. I also miss traveling. I’ve enjoyed my whole career, getting to know different corners of the world. ”He can check what he can do in grand slams at the end of August. On the last day of August, the US Open, which it intends to attend, will begin. If he dares to play clay matches, a month later he will start the translated French Open.
Nathan Congleton/NBC(NEW YORK) — It’s very possible that Reese Witherspoon’s 20-year-old daughter Ava constantly hears “You look just like your mother!” The mother-daughter duo proved just that in their recent Instagram snap.The 43-year-old actress posted a photo of the two standing side by side before a fun outing with the caption, “Girls night out with my favorite daughter! (ok she’s my only daughter but still).”The two are wearing bright red lipstick, chunky earrings, and black tops. However, despite the matching outfits, fans can’t seem to get over how much Ava looks like an exact replica of her mother when she was 20.Fans and friends couldn’t stop gawking about their doppelganger situation in the comments section, either. Zoe Kravitz gushed, “omg my lil gorgeous twinZzzzzzzz” while Mindy Kaling hilariously declared, “I fainted.”This isn’t the first time people freaked out over the twinning Witherspoon-duo. A month ago, the Big Little Lies actress posted a sweet lunch selfie with her daughter, which earned similar remarks. It also didn’t help that in the post before that, Reese shared a throwback photo of what she looked like in the 90s. That said, it probably isn’t so bad to hear over and over again that you look like your mother when your mom is actually Reese Witherspoon.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio. All rights reserved.
17 December 2013The rhino that survived an attack by poachers in South Africa’s Eastern Cape province last year is pregnant, according to Alan Weyer, the general manager of Kariega Game Reserve.“Although this may be a small step toward winning the fight against poaching, we remember Madiba’s words, ‘It always seems impossible until it’s done’,” Weyer said in a statement last week, quoting Nelson Mandela, South Africa’s former president, who died on 5 December.Thandi, as the rhino is named, survived an attack at the reserve just outside Port Elizabeth in March last year. Poachers tranquillised three rhino with darts, and hacked off their horns, leaving them to bleed to death. The two other rhinos – both bulls – died from their wounds.Wildlife vet Dr Will Fowlds, who has been treating Thandi since the attack, said blood tests had confirmed that the rhino was at the end of the first trimester of her pregnancy. “I don’t recall such a small value carrying such huge significance for anything in my professional life,” Fowlds said.TrustingFowlds has devotedly attended to Thandi – which means “love” in isiXhosa – since her attack. She has been through countless surgeries and procedures to keep the wound from infection and to find ways “to protect her vulnerable face from the rigours of normal rhino life”, the reserve said. This has included a pioneering skin graft earlier this year.“There have been ups and downs including two occasions when her wound has reopened but despite that, her behaviour has returned to normal and she has become more trusting and less nervous with each passing day.”Staff at the reserve say Thandi has shown “an incredible fighting spirit and will to survive”.Fowlds has taken Thandi’s story around the world – including to Vietnam and China – to raise awareness about the fight against poaching.Courage“Thandi is arguably the single most important rhino alive as I am not aware of any individual animal that has carried the plight of the rhino out to the world to the extent that she has and continues to do,” Fowlds said.“Her story has touched the lives of so many people across the globe and her courage is reflected in our love for her and the species that she represents. The prospects of a successful pregnancy and birth represent the hope of survival. In a crisis which threatens us with despair, that hope, as insignificant as it may seem for some, is what we cling to for dear life.”The gestation period of white rhino’s is between 15 and 16 months. If Thandi is somewhere in her first trimester she will probably have the calf in around a year’s time, the reserve says on its blog. “Thandi is over 10 years old. If all goes well this will be her third calf.”The reserve says Thandi spends most of her time in the company of one of the other rhino cows on the reserve. Her female companion gave birth in March this year – a year after the poaching incident. The calf was fathered by one of the two bulls lost in the poaching incident.The horns of the reserve’s remaining rhinos were surgically removed after the attack to prevent another tragedy.Source: Kariega Game Reserve
It was supposed to be the pre-series press conference of the Asia Cup, but Rahul Dravid, who retired from firstclass cricket on Friday, dominated the proceedings with captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni saying that it's not even advisable for youngsters to think that they would replace the most successful Indian No.3 Test batsman, or any other great player."'Jam' was a great character to have in the dressing room. He was someone who loved challenges, whatever was thrown to him throughout his career - whether he was asked to open because of any reason or was asked to keep wickets."He's someone who will definitely be missed - an ideal role model and a good ambassador for the sport," Dhoni said."Definitely, we will miss him when it comes to the talent and what he brought into the team. Guys like him... it's not even advisable to think that they will be replaced by some other youngsters. Youngsters will be under tremendous pressure if they start to think like that."Dhoni pointed out the huge contribution that senior players like Dravid and a few other Indians have made to the game. "Every individual is different. Anyone who comes in shouldn't even think of the kind of senior we've got, whether you talk about Anil Kumble, Rahul, Sachin or Laxman or Sourav Ganguly. It's tough to replace them, so no point in thinking you'll have players who will replace them," he said."Somebody will start his career and who will be, after 10 or 12 years, very successful. But to say whether they will replace Rahul or talent like his, it's difficult."advertisementOn India's prospects in the Asia Cup, which begins with a Bangladesh-Pakistan game on Sunday, Dhoni hoped his team would perform consistently in the 12-day tournament."Over the years, its format has changed. Now, four good sides are playing. It's very important to start on a positive note."I said important because it's not very often that all the Asian countries play together. Hopefully, the team that plays the best will win the tournament. All the sides are really good," said the captain who will have a new vice-captain in Virat Kohli."It's important to take it one game at a time, not to think too much ahead. When it comes to ODI format we've done quite well."We are hoping that we will stick to it and be consistent throughout the tournament," he said.
England, seeking its first title, has been the pick of the teams in the Champions TrophyEngland topped its Champions Trophy pool by drawing with second-place Belgium 1-1, while Argentina dispatched Germany 3-0 on Tuesday.England, seeking its first Trophy title, has been the pick of the teams with wins over five-time defending champion Australia and Pakistan. It conceded an early goal to Belgium but dominated thereafter.Amaury Keusters put Belgium ahead in the eighth minute, and goalkeeper Vincent Vanash fisted out some threats from England to help hold on to the lead.But England's pressure was unrelenting. Iain Lewers hit the crossbar from a penalty stroke but produced the equalizer in the 48th minute with a crisp reverse-flick from the top of the circle."I was fortunate to find myself in a position to score and make up for not converting the stroke," Lewers said. "We're pleased with our performance today but what matters is that we win our knockout games."Winless teams Australia and Pakistan were to decide third and fourth in the pool.In Pool B, Argentina handed Olympic champion Germany a second straight loss with its biggest ever win in the Trophy.Captain Matias Paredes connected on a cross from the right to put Argentina ahead early in the second quarter. Joaquin Menini doubled the lead with a fine move down the center in tandem with Peredes, and an unmarked Ignacio Ortiz tapped in on a pass from Manuel Brunet to made it 3-0.The Netherlands could top the pool if it beat winless India late on Tuesday.advertisementAll eight teams are assured of quarterfinal berths, and the final pool positions determine the draw.
