first_img Waterhouse coach Glendon ‘Admiral’ Bailey, who was brought in two months ago with the mission to save the team from relegation, believes that he can move them into the championship rounds. “It is a good victory for us as the team worked hard leading up to the match. The effort and fight were there today. We have to keep working,” Bailey said. “Our main problem is injuries and cards. However, there are a lot of points to play for and my job is to turn things around,” he added. Meanwhile, Arnett’s Jerome Waite credited Waterhouse for their determined approach, but believes there was too much physicality in the play. “It was a very physical game and I think more cards should have been issued. Waterhouse needed points and came to win at all cost,” Waite said. Veteran defender Irvino ‘Dada’ English came off the bench to score his first Premier League goal in six years to seal the deal in Waterhouse’s 3-0 win over Arnett Gardens at the Anthony Spaulding Complex yesterday. English, who stepped up to bury a free kick after only a minute on the pitch, was obviously elated about his struggling team’s victory. “I came back to the team last year after six years away and scored my first goal. It is always a special feeling to score against rivals Arnett,” English told The Gleaner. The win pushed Water House on to 18 points, but they remained in the relegation zone in 11th position in the 12-team Red Stripe Premier League. English says this win is encouraging and could turn things around. “This win could turn things around for us to climb up the table. I missed the league while away, and the fans called for me and I’m here to help put Waterhouse back where they belong,” the 38-year-old added. “I’m not where I want to be physically, but I am working hard on fitness. I really believe that the team can finish in the top six as we have quality players and a good coach.” Another substitute, Kemar Beckford, opened the scoring for Waterhouse in the 63rd minute before Romario ‘Rum Rum’ Campbell converted a chance six minutes later before English’s 81st- minute icing on the cake. Waterhouse, however, finished with ten players as central defender Jeffery Henry received a second yellow card and was ejected by referee Valdin Ledgister in second-half stoppage time.

first_img26 August 2013 Farming the Wild, a community-driven project backed to the tune of R22-million by the government’s Green Fund, aims to transform lives in rural Somkhanda in KwaZulu-Natal through the establishment of a community game reserve. Environmental Affairs Minister Edna Molewa launched the project in uPhongolo local municipality in KwaZulu-Natal on Friday. Managed by the Development Bank of Southern Africa, the Green Fund provides finance to facilitate investment in greening initiatives. The Department of Environmental Affairs said the Somkhanda Community Game Reserve represented a green economy solution suitable for the rural areas across the country.Transforming rural communities “The sustainable use and conservation of wild animal and indigenous vegetation resources have the ability to … transform the poor rural economy of South Africa.” The land on which the game reserve was founded was restored to the community of Somkhanda through the land reform process in 2005. The community decided to place the majority of the land under conservation and create a game reserve to drive development in the area. The Somkhanda community has formed partnerships with the Wildlands Conservation Trust and the World Wildlife Fund to guide them in establishing the reserve. Through this partnership, various skills development projects have been introduced to members of the community.Introducing endangered black rhino The Somkhanda game reserve is a participant in the Black Rhino Range Expansion Programme, which is introducing endangered black rhino to the reserve. Some of the game already purchased includes buffalo, impala and zebra. “Revenue can be generated from hunting, live game sales, game products and ecotourism,” the department said. “The project will create approximately 80 jobs. Thus far, 28 permanent and 15 temporary jobs have been created.” The project will be implemented by the Wildlands Conservation Trust, who will coordinate all financial expenditure of the project.‘Sustainable development path’ On Friday, Molewa also launched the South African Green Economy Modelling (SAGEM) Report, which explores the question of whether equal or higher growth could be achieved with a more sustainable, equitable and resilient economy. “South Africa views a green economy as a sustainable development path that is based on addressing the interdependence between economic growth, social protection and natural ecosystems,” the department said. “The SAGEM was therefore developed to explore the transition to a green economy for South Africa, with special attention for its ability to meet low carbon growth, resource efficiency and pro-job development targets.” The transition to a green economy in South Africa is linked to many policies, strategies and plans, including the National Development Plan, the New Growth Path, the National Climate Change Response Policy and the Industrial Policy Action Plan. The SAGEM report is closely aligned to these policies and plans. It seeks to present a modelling process and test the national targets and the effects of investing in a green economy in South Africa. The department and its stakeholders have committed to continuing initiatives that will simulate green economy investments. The department said it will regularly update the SAGEM report, as and when new relevant policies and scenarios arose. Source: SANews.gov.zalast_img read more

OSU then-sophomore attacker Colin Chell (22) prepares to shoot during a scrimmage against The Hill Academy on Jan. 30. Credit: Kylie Bryant | | For The LanternA stinging loss to No. 19 Marquette followed by a marginal win against Detroit Mercy was not what the then-No. 6 Ohio State men’s lacrosse team had in mind going into the Midwest Lacrosse Classic last weekend. But the now-No. 14 Buckeyes (5-1) have had a full week of practice to improve their play as they prepare to clash with Towson for their first game of the season at Ohio Stadium.The Tigers have stumbled to a sluggish 2-3 record this season with an 0-2 away record. But the Buckeyes aren’t counting them out, especially considering Towson’s previous performances against them.“This is a game that the last four years we’ve played them — twice last year and the two prior to that — you’re looking at two overtime games and two one-goal games,” Ohio State head coach Nick Myers said. “We anticipate it being a really healthy competition, seeing two teams collide and probably being something like that as it has been in the past.”The Buckeyes are 3-1 in the past four years against Towson, with their lone loss coming in the 2016 season by way of a 10-9 overtime decision. Last year, Ohio State managed a 6-3 mid-season win versus the Tigers, and followed that up with a dramatic 11-10 win in the NCAA semifinals, before losing to Maryland in the championship game. Towson brings Colonial Athletic Association player of the week Jon Mazza to the table. He is a 6-foot-4 junior attack who had a standout day for the Tigers in their 8-6 win against the University of Maryland, Baltimore County on Saturday. He recorded five goals and two assists. Myers specifically mentioned Towson junior midfielder Alex Woodall, who has won 72-of-105 draws, as a notable opponent for Ohio State’s own faceoff specialists — freshman midfielder Justin Inacio and sophomore midfielder Christian Feliziani. “They’re very disciplined. They typically don’t do anything to beat themselves, and they’re going to force you to beat them, which for us creates a really good challenge,” Myers said.Myers said Ohio State’s first loss on the road against the Golden Eagles on Friday created a sense of urgency among team members, forcing them to analyze the facets of their game that needed attention before going up against Towson. “I think it just starts with leadership, you know just taking that one-goal-at-a-time approach,” senior attack Colin Chell said. “I think it’s really settling the guys down, making sure we have good offensive possessions, making stops on defense, big ground balls at the [faceoff] and just taking it one possession and one goal at a time.”Saturday’s game will be the team’s first this season playing in Ohio Stadium, a fact that leaves players both excited and humbled.“I’ve been fortunate enough to play in there for three years – this’ll be my fourth year – and you know we’re just excited to get out there,” said Chell. “[We’re] pumped for these young guys to experience the Shoe – it’s a truly incredible experience.”The Buckeyes’ faceoff is slated to begin at 4 p.m. Saturday in Ohio Stadium. read more
