Brown Eagles and Kikila Cats clash in local derby

first_imgBY SIMON KESLEP Softball They are brothers, uncles and close relatives of Matupit Island, East New Britain but come game-day on Sunday (11.30 am), Brown Eagles and Kikila Cats go head-to-head in a local slug fest derby. Another notable highlight of the matchup between these two teams in Port Moresby men’s A grade is that it will be a noisy, entertaining and the dugouts will be full of laughter. It is also a test for the Julius Uvia Eagles finals experienced side up against Arthur Kinakava-coached side. The reigning back-to-back Niugini Islands Insurance Brokers Eagles-sponsored side will be out in full force to deny Cats’ opportunities to score runs in opening innings. For Cats, they have had a bumpy ride this season with some ups and downs in their current form but Club president Apisai Guguna said they aim to finish off on a good note. “It is our last game, no high hopes but we will finish off on a good note. It is up to the players to pay attention to calls and game plan set by coach Arthur Kinakava.” “We’ve shown some good improvements, the likes of Graham Penias and Clement Okole stepping to take lead on the pitching mound proves to be working…we just need to play our own game and need to execute our game plan,” said Guguna. Eagles, with the likes of pitcher and catcher combination of Kolish Pagal and Pedro Kulukul, will test Cats top opening sluggers. Backing the duo (Pagal and Kulukul) in fielding will be ToAlbert brothers Manu, skipper Martin, Bernard including Peter Bunbun, Oscar Burangat and fellow team mates. However, the count them (Cats) out of the slugfest as they too have what it takes once they find tune in their batting which can stir up some positive rhythm for them on the score card. Fielding wise, the Cats will have to work extra hard if they mean serious business to cause an upset and putting on a good game finish. In the other A grade games, Yokomo vs United Brothers, Stingerz vs Defence, Gazelle in another slugfest with Bears while PNG Power take on Saints in the main game. Meanwhile, the wash-out games will be played next weekend.last_img read more

Rasmus Placed on DL, Yacabonis Called Up

first_imgThe Baltimore Orioles made a slight roster move this morning, placing outfielder Colby Rasmus on the 10 day disabled list and calling up relief pitcher, Jimmy Yacabonis from Norfolk. Rasmus is dealing with a left hip flexor strain, but everyone knows it’s because he’s been absolutely terrible at the plate so far this season, going 2-21 at the plate, with a whopping 13 strikeouts.Yacabonis, a 26 year old righty, came up late in the season last year and notched a 4.35 ERA and 0.57 K/BB in 20.2 innings pitched.Yacabonis is going to be a middle reliever while up in Baltimore, coming in when needed to keep Mychal Givens’ and others’ arms healthy for the long haul of the season.Rasmus was signed to be the latest in the revolving door at right field, but so far that experiment has failed. Expect rookie Anthony Santander to start in right and eventually “Wally Pip” Rasmus.Please follow and like us:last_img read more

Funniest NBA Draft memes, especially ones ravaging the reeling Knicks

first_imgNEW YORK — The first two rounds of the 2015 NBA Draft are complete and, let’s just say, Knick fans are even more depressed and irate than they were during their travesty of a 2014-15 season that saw them win just 17 games out of a possible 82.Their cross-country rival, the Los Angeles Lakers, are in a party mood after they came up after drafting Ohio State’s superstar point guard D’Angelo Russell and then followed that up with the pick of Larry Nance Jr., son of former Cleveland Cavaliers All-Star Larry Nance Sr.The Knicks, needing something to infuse electricity and excitement into their pathetic franchise, selected an unknown man with an unpronounceable name from a country most have never heard of: Kristaps Porzingis, a power forward from Latvia. The pick incited anger among Knicks faifthul inside the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. They booed. They gave thumbs down gestures. One little boy looked like he wanted to cry. Another covered his face. The Knicks, on surface, seemed to be the biggest losers in the 2015 NBA Draft, and social media were sure to convey their feelings in hilarious ways. Take a look:last_img read more

First half goals by Dessie Conneely (2) and a Robert Finnerty penalty gave Galway a 3-3 to 0-7 half time lead over Leitrim after playing into a strong wind. In desperate conditions, Leitrim could only manage 1 point in the second half as Galway registered points from David Wynne (0-1) and Johnny Heaney (0-2) to ease to a 7 point win. The win follows Galway’s 1-10 to 1-9 win over Mayo in Castlebar on Friday night so with 6 points out of 6 they qualify for the final against Roscommon on the 18th of February.
