The “river” derby of Northern Bulgaria can be very important for the fate of both teams in this championship.The hosts from Veliko Tarnovo are in tenth place with 24 years. Curiously, they are currently in the Europa League playoff zone, but it seems that they will fight for survival. Their financial crisis is very serious and the players play in every game as if for the last time. The Dragons also have problems, but in recent days light has begun to appear in their “tunnel”. They have only 19 points and with one loss today they will almost certainly secure a place in the top three for places 11th to 13th.In the first half of the season in Ruse, the “violet” won 2-0. The scheme of the Bulgarian championship is such that Eter and Dunav can play against each other three times within the next month.After the departure of Alexander Dyulgerov and Krassimir Stanoev, the coach of Etar Petko Petkov does not have much choice in determining the starting lineup. Florent Bojaj has been restored and will start as a starter in attack, together with Tonislav Yordanov and Milcho Angelov. Anton Ognyanov is expected to remain on the bench, scoring an own goal against Lokomotiv (Plovdiv), at the expense of Dino Martinovic.Ruse will be without the permanently injured CSKA football player Mitko Mitkov. In attack, Lyudmil Kirov is expected to rely on Stefan Hristov. Svilen Shterev and the agile Julian Nenov will act on both flanks.last_img read more

first_imgFollowing their 0-2 defeat at the hands of Trinidad and Tobago, Guyana’s National Men’s Hockey Team on Saturday suffered another defeat against their counterparts from the Twin Island Republic in the second of their three match CAC warm up series.  The margin of defeat was stretched even further in the second encounter as the host, Trinidad and Tobago found the back of the upright on four occasions. Guyana on the other hand, failed yet again to score. The Guyanese started much better than their first match, holding their own against the vaunted Trinidad setup.   Honours remained throughout the first quarter and most of the second quarter, until Rayon Branford received a yellow card with five minutes left in the second quarter, which meant that Guyana would have to play with a man short for the rest of the half. The Guyanese held Trinidad at bay until the 28th minute when they conceded a penalty corner and Daniel Byer deflected in a Tariq Marcano drag flick.  Two minutes later, on the stroke of half time, a clinical Trinidadian counter attack was finished by Kristien Emmanuel to make it 2-0. Guyana started the second half strongly, creating several goal scoring opportunities which went begging. On one such occasion, debutant Edmond Chinian was awarded a penalty stroke after being fouled in the scoring area, but again the opportunity went begging as Andrew Stewart pushed the ball wide left.  With Guyana pressing high to get on the score sheet, Marcano picked up the ball in space and eliminated one defender before sending a drive into the scoring which was deflected by Dylan Francis in the 52nd minute. Trinidad were awarded a penalty corner on the stroke of full time and Marcano finished off a man of the match performance with a clinical drag flick finish off the base of the left post. The trip to Trinidad was used as a doubt opportunity to play against a competitive side and to use turf facilities to get in a few practice sessions.   Guyana in that regard was able to complete their first practice session on Saturday night and will be hoping to improve their finishing in Sunday’s final match.last_img read more

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados, CMC – Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners skipper, Carlos Brathwaite, said his side’s triumph in the Regional Super50 was built on a desire not to simply compete but to play an aggressive brand of cricket and actually win the competition. Marooners lifted the domestic 50-overs title on Sunday when they trounced nine-time champions  Guyana Jaguars by six wickets at Kensington Oval, to register their maiden success in the competition.  “Our motto was we wanted to be respected around the region and [coach] Floyd Reifer instilled in us that we came here to win,”  the West Indies Twenty20 skipper said afterwards.“CCC in the past have come to compete and when you come to compete and you get that close, then it’s not winning. You always have near misses. This year we came to win.“We did a lot of soul searching after the Leeward Islands game – I think that’s the last game we lost. We failed to chase 130 … and the message was just clear: if you want to win, you have to play a brand of cricket that’s aggressive, attacking, no fear and expressive. “Since then, even if players played what may be deemed ‘a rash shot’ or ‘a bad shot’ or lose their wicket, the message from the dressing was always the same: why did you play it? If was more of a conversation – more communication than just slagging.” He added: “I think that gave a lot of players the freedom to express themselves and in the games following obviously as a bowling unit, we bowled very, very well but some of the ways we chased down some of the targets was very impressive. It’s a culmination of a lot of things – a lot of hard work.”One of the challenges Marooners face each year is their squad selection. They can only assemble their unit after the other franchises across the region have picked their squads. As a result, there is often uncertainty about availability of players and ultimately, squad combinations, which proves a headache for selectors.However, Brathwaite said even with these hurdles the squad were still able to come together and gel quickly, holding intense training sessions and pulling together as a family.“It was very difficult. I had a lot of chats with Floyd and I think we had the best combinations possible,” Brathwaite explained. “Firstly, to play the games at UWI but then to be versatile enough to come to the Oval on what is a slightly different surface and be able to not only compete but win and win convincingly. “So it’s a challenge but it’s testament to the system that’s in place at CCC. We’ve counted 33 or 34 players that would’ve passed through the CCC programme and gone on to West Indies A and West Indies international honours so it’s testament to the programme that even with the challenges we have, that we can put in such good performances.“The challenge is now to do it in the four-day if included or to replicate it next Super50.”Brathwaite’s presence was key to Marooners’ success. Not only was his international experience vital but he also performed on the field, gathering 212 runs at an average of 53 and also taking 13 wickets. He said having skipped a potential T20 contract for the Super50 and then leading Marooners to victory, had been a rewarding experience.“It means a lot. Over the past year people have been telling me I needed to sacrifice some of this franchise cricket and come back and play first class [cricket],” Brathwaite said.“[I] sacrificed a contract possibly in the Afghanistan Premier League this time around. I spoke to Floyd about trying to get my batting back on track and the opportunity to come and lead the CCC if possible.“Spoke to Kyle Corbin and asked his blessing as captain at the time. For such big decisions to be made, such sacrifices to be made and then for it to culminate in a victory of the entire tournament, for it to go down in the history books is a special feeling.”last_img read more

first_imgFreeform/Lorenzo Bevilaqua(NEW YORK) — Eline Powell, the star of Freeform’s mermaid thriller Siren, will be making a splash at the 37th annual Coney Island Mermaid Parade in New York City on Saturday.This year marks the Belgian actress’ first time at the parade and she’ll be riding a special Siren-themed float. She’s still deciding what she’ll be wearing to the celebration, which is known for its wild costumes and artistic expression.“This is the best part about any community parade kind of thing, it’s the creativity that comes out,” Powell tells ABC Radio. “I’m obviously so keen to see what people dress up like. But, you know, to draw that to a bigger line, it’s also to see what their interpretation of mermaid is.”Maybe she’ll even hit the beach at Coney Island after the parade is over. Powell says that playing the fierce mermaid Ryn on Siren hasn’t made her sick of the water — it’s only made her more inclined to take a beach vacation.“At this point in time, I’m still like, ‘Does it have a beach? Does it have a sea or kind of place I can swim in?’ Otherwise I’m not too interested at the moment,” she laughs. “So it’s still a really big part of my life.” Siren, currently in its second season and recently renewed for a third, airs Thursdays at 8 p.m. ET on Freeform.Copyright © 2019, ABC Radio.

first_imgNowadays, the two East Coast teams play each other every year, usually splitting four games at each ballpark. Former Orioles third baseman Manny Machado laying the tag on Nationals third baseman Anthony Rendon in a 2018 Beltway Series matchup The question we have to ask ourselves is this, is the Beltway Series a legitimate rivalry? Well, to most O’s and Nats fans, it is indeed. Please follow and like us: The Battle of the Beltways has been a staple series for baseball lovers all around Maryland, and for years the Baltimore Orioles and Washington Nationals have been quite the quiet rivals in MLB. The series name is taken from the beltway highways, the Baltimore Beltway (I-695) and the Capital Beltway (I-95/I-495), that serve Baltimore and D.C., respectively. The Orioles were victorious in the first ever meeting between the two teams on May 19, 2006, defeating Washington at Robert F. Kennedy Memorial Stadium by a score of 5-1. The Nationals hold the largest victory between the two teams, after defeating the Orioles 17-5 on May 20, 2011, with the help of six home runs and 19 tallied hits.center_img In that game, Jeff Conine, Kris Benson, Corey Patterson, Ramon Hernandez, and Eddie Rogers each tallied one RBI in the Orioles win. Former Orioles manager Buck Showalter conversing with former Nationals manager Dusty Baker Washington also holds the longest win streak in series history, winning seven straight games between 2017 and 2019. Unlike the infamous 118-year rivalry between the New York Yankees and the Boston Red Sox, the Beltway Series began in 2006, primarily due to the two team’s close proximity to one another (about 40 miles apart). There have been 73 meetings between the two interleague foes, with the Orioles leading the all-time record 42-31. last_img read more
