Rollers’ Lemponye Tshireletso sinks KCCA

first_imgTP Mazembe of the Democratic Republic of Congo host Entente Setif of Algeria on Saturday in the other fixture in the mini-league.Both fixtures in Group C and in Group D will also be staged Saturday with defending champions Wydad Casablanca of Morocco among the clubs in action.Record eight-time champions Ahly sorely missed two injured strikers, Moroccan Walid Azaro and Nigerian Junior Ajayi, as they failed to score against twice title-holders Esperance.It was the eighth draw in 17 matches between the teams across various CAF competitions with Ahly winning six and Esperance three.They clashed in the 2017 Champions League quarter-finals with Ahly winning the second leg near Tunis after being held in Alexandria.In Gaborone, Tshireletso timed his run perfectly on to a Joel Mogorosi pass and rounded goalkeeper Tom Ikapa to score Rollers’ winner on 36 minutes.Mogorosi wasted a good chance to double the lead almost immediately after the deadlock was broken when he fired wide from inside the six-yard box.A couple of stoppage-time saves from Rollers goalkeeper Keagile Kgosipula prevented the Ugandan outfit levelling in a clash of group phase debutants.Rollers shocked Al Merrikh of Sudan and Young Africans of Tanzania to become the first Botswana club to reach the last 16.Mouloudia had Zidane Mebarakou red-carded early in the second half and fell behind after 77 minutes when Hamid Ahaddad of Jadida scored his seventh Champions League goal this season.Amir Karaoui equalised with eight minutes remaining in Algiers for Mouloudia, who had scored 15 goals at home in two qualifiers.Jadida are playing in the group phase for the first time and hope to emulate Moroccan clubs Raja Casablanca, Wydad Casablanca and FAR Rabat by winning the elite African club competition.Share on: WhatsApp Township Rollers  ??  1 KCCA FC  ?? 0Al Ahly?? 0  ??ES Tunis 0Gabarone, Botswana |  INDEPENDENT & AFP | A 36th minute goal by Lemponye Tshireletso was the difference in a closely fought 2018 CAF Champions League group phase match between Uganda’s KCCA FC and Botswana flag bearers Township Rollers on Friday.Tshireletso latched onto a through-pass by Mogorosi, rounded KCCA goal keeper and slotted home to make it 1-0 for the hosts. The Botswana side held on for their Champions League Group state win.The opening Group A tie was a first Champions League Group game for both sides in their first ever clash. It is a tough group that also has North African giants Al Ahly of Egypt and Esperance of Tunisia.“I believe in this group ten points will be enough to qualify for the quarter finals, when and where you get those ten points does not matter; each match is three points, whether it is the first game or the last. But a winning start can give psychological strength, especially because we have two extremely important games coming up in the local league. So from that point of view, this match can determine how we do in both competitions,” Kavazovic said in an interview with rollersfc.com.Tweets about KCCABotswana minnows lead group after Ahly, Esperance drawAfrican giants Al Ahly of Egypt and Esperance of Tunisia drew Friday when the CAF Champions League group phase began, allowing minnows Township Rollers of Botswana to lead Group A.Ahly and Esperance fought a 0-0 draw in Alexandria while a Lemponye Tshireletso goal gave surprise qualifiers Rollers a 1-0 win over Kampala Capital City Authority of Uganda in Gaborone.Rollers top the Group A standings with three points, Ahly and Esperance have one each and KCCA are pointless.In another match, Mouloudia Alger of Algeria came from behind with 10 men to draw 1-1 at home against Difaa el Jadida of Morocco and share the Group B lead.last_img read more

Thunder Bay police under fire over handling of death and missing First

first_img(The parents of Josiah Begg make another plea for his return Wednesday at a media conference in Thunder Bay. “Please come home,” said his mom Sunshine Winters. Photo: Willow Fiddler.)APTN National NewsThe conduct of Thunder Bay police and its handling of its investigations into a missing youth and the death of another came under fire Wednesday as chiefs said they have no confidence in police to conduct thorough investigations.Police ruled there was no foul play in the death of Tammy Keeash, 17, May 7.And police haven’t been able to locate Josiah Begg, 14, who has been missing since May 6.“All available resources should have been deployed on a 24/7 basis since the day Josiah disappeared and the city should be turned upside down until he is found,” said Nishnawbe Aski Nation Grand Chief Alvin Fiddler. “Police have done no better investigating Tammy’s death, accepting drowning as the cause but failing to determine how she ended up in the water.”Pearl Slipperjack says not enough counselling for kids like her daughter #TammyKeeash + shld be more resources “Tammy was a troubled kid”. pic.twitter.com/l3tDJqmTnT— Willow Fiddler (@WillowBlasizzo) May 17, 2017According to the chief of North Caribou Lake First Nation, where Keeash was from but living in a Thunder Bay group home, Keeash was trained to survive in difficult environments.“Tammy lived in community surrounded by water. As a member of the Junior Canadian Rangers she was trained to survive in harsh conditions. We are skeptical about how she died and where her body was found,” said Chief Dinah Kanate. “We have many questions and look to the police and appropriate agencies for answers.”Begg, from Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug, was in Thunder Bay with his father for a medical appointment when he was last seen around 10 p.m. near the Vale Community Centre.“It is a stressful time for the family and our community as we await word of our missing youth, Josiah Begg,” said Kitchenuhmaykoosib Inninuwug Chief James Cutfeet.Police said May 12 that a post-mortem examination indicated Keeash’s death was consistent with drowning.NAN has pushed police to treat Keeash’s death as a suspicious death after her body was found in the Neebing McIntyre floodway.#TammyKeeash was a trained Canadian Ranger, she knew water safety says #NAN @gcfiddler abt Coroner’s drowning conclusion #tbay pic.twitter.com/NP1HrJovt5— Willow Fiddler (@WillowBlasizzo) May 17, 2017“Our communities do not have confidence in the police to conduct thorough investigations. Our leaders are now forced to pool their resources to coordinate their own searches and – potentially – fund their own private investigations. If the police won’t act, we will,” said Fiddler.NAN said the missing persons investigations have been questioned before, which led to the inquest into the deaths of seven NAN youth since 2000 while living in Thunder Bay.In November 2016, the Office of the Independent Police Review Director announced a systemic review of the Thunder Bay Police Service’s practices for policing Indigenous peoples.The review is looking at policies, practices and attitudes regarding missing persons and death investigations said NAN.NAN has established a command centre at Dennis Franklin Cromarty High School to lead the search for Begg.“We are heartbroken over Tammy’s tragic loss and our hearts and prayers are with her family and the Weagamow community, who laid her body to rest (Tuesday),” said Deputy Grand Chief Anna Betty Achneepineskum. “We appreciate the efforts of everyone searching for Josiah and we will not give up hope for his safe return. His family and community desperately want him back, and we will do everything possible to find him.”[email protected]last_img read more
