Police, Pele move into next round of Turbo KO Football

first_imgPOLICE Football Club and Pele Football Club are the first two teams to advance to the next round of the Petra-organised Turbo knockout football tournament.Playing at the Ministry of Education ground which recently saw the installation of lights, the two teams had drastically differing paths to their spots in the next round.The Guyana Police Force were in no playful mood as they thumped the West Demerara’s Eagles FC by a 6-0 margin in the first game of the night.Rawle Haynes led the line with a hat-trick for the boys in blue with successful strikes in the 64th, 75th and 77th minutes.Goals were also scored by Junior Gordon (34th), Travis Jones (48th) and Kester Dundas (63rd) in the rout.In the other game, however, Pele eventually won 2-1 after a constant shift of momentum between them and opponents Northern Rangers.Sherwin Vincent scored for the Rangers to put them ahead in the first half (12th) and the side looked as though they might be heading for victory with some tidy defensive work.Pele’s Darrhan Persaud found the equaliser in the 35th as the half ended with the score deadlocked.On the resumption, both sides tried valiantly to break the deadlock but it was Akosi Jarvis who scored just two minutes into the additional time (90+2).Matches will continue on Tuesday evening at the same venue with Georgetown Football Club taking on Silver Shattas followed by Riddim Squad against Pouderoyen.Group A now contains Pele, Santos, Riddim Squad, Silver Shattas, Uitvlugt and Winners Connection.Group B has Grove Hi-Tech, Pouderoyen, Buxton Stars, Camptown FC, Mahaica Determinators, Kuru Kuru, Georgetown Football Club and Police.The remaining 14 teams are contesting for a first-place prize of $500 000 while the runners-up will receive $250 000, third-placers $125,000 and fourth-place finishers will pocket $75 000.last_img read more

Constant changing of Sports Directors hampers industry growth – Dr.Owusu Ansah

first_imgFormer National Sports Council Chairman, Dr. Emmanuel Owusu Ansah, has attributed Ghana’s ineffective showing in the sporting sector down to the constant change in Sports Directors and Ministers.Speaking as the main speaker at Thursday evening’s Joy Sports Leadership Dialogue, Dr. Ansah touched on the phenomenon of changing too many directors of sport in the country and how it affects its development.“From 1960 to 2015, Ghana has had 24 directors of sports. Out of the 24, only five of them were in office for a little over five years,” he said at the event, held at the Best Western Premier Hotel.“This means that 19 other directors had an average of one year and two months in office.”“One director, the late Joe Lartey, stayed in office for three days and was removed. His position was announed on a Friday. On Monday, another announcement came and he was off.”“The picture of the tenure of office of Ministers of Youth and Sports is even worse. For a period of six years from 2009 to 2015, the sports ministry has seen seven Ministers of Sports.” Dr. Ansah is of the view the constant chopping and changing will affect the implementation of any policies generated by the directors and ministers.–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.
