Juve held at Bologna, opens door to Napoli

Posted on

first_imgBOLOGNA, Italy (AP):Juventus missed the chance to move four points clear in Serie A and will not be able to level the record of consecutive wins after they were held to a goalless draw at Bologna yesterday.Massimiliano Allegri’s team beat Napoli last weekend to move top and were seeking a 16th consecutive win, which would have left them one behind Inter Milan’s record set in 2006-07.Victory would also have given Juventus a significant advantage ahead of Napoli’s match against AC Milan on Monday. Instead, Napoli can move a point ahead of Juventus with a win.”We gave our all on the pitch, maybe with a few too many errors in the last ball,” Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci said. “The season is long. We didn’t win the title last week against Napoli, and we haven’t lost it now.”Bonucci insisted he and his teammates did not have one eye on Europe ahead of the resumption of the Champions League next week and Tuesday’s visit of Bayern Munich.”The title will be fought for right until the end,” he added. “Now, we have to focus on Tuesday, but we weren’t distracted by the match against Bayern Munich. When you’re playing for the title, you never think about the next match.”Juventus did not have a single shot on target all match, for the first time since 2011.Bologna had the best chance of the match in the 21st minute when Juventus goalkeeper Gianluigi Buffon parried a Matteo Destro effort from long range and Godfred Donsah fired the rebound well wide of the left upright.last_img read more

JFF dominates $216m SDF grants

Posted on

first_img Outside of the funding that the JAAA received, the SDF pumped $42,124,000 into the Jamaica International Invitational IAAF World Challenge meeting, which is held inside the National Stadium in the first Saturday in May annually. The financials for the years 2014 and 2015 were published, and in both reports, the JFF emerged with the lion’s share. The 2015 figure was a major leap over 2014 as well, as the JFF received only $45 million in that year. The SDF said that its grants in 2015 had exceeded its budgeted amount of $186,660,000 by $30,169,000. That included an additional $25,600,000 given to the JFF. The SDF received a major portion of its funding from gaming, with $606,971,000 coming from that one source, $11,160,000 coming from its investments, and $14,690,000 from other income sources. The Betting, Gaming and Lotteries Act states that the SDF is entitled to 40 per cent of the gaming proceeds received by the Culture, Sports, Arts, Health, and Education Fund. Among the SDF’s mandates are to fund programmes of the national sporting associations and to facilitate the development and growth of talent and skills through the construction of sporting facilities. Several government agencies also received grants totalling $45,561,138. Those included the Institute of Sports, which was given $16,500,000; the Social Development Commission, which received $16,952,410; the G.C. Foster College of Physical Education and Sport, which received $8,794,227 and Independence Park Limited, which received $3,314,501. The Sports Development Foundation (SDF) granted $216,829,036 in subventions to local national sporting associations in 2015, according to the latest annual report published by the government agency. Of that amount, the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) received more than $70,000,000, while the next three top-funded sporting associations combined received $69,133,192. Some 40 sporting bodies were listed in the 2015 financial report, but while the Jamaica Athletics Administrative Association (JAAA) ($26,652,242); Jamaica Cricket Association ($23,800,000), and Netball Jamaica ($18,680,850) received millions of dollars in government support, some associations did not receive a dollar. Those who got no funding included the Jamaica Bobsleigh Federation, the Jamaica Rifle Association, the Jamaica Ski Federation, and the Jamaica Cricket Umpires Association. In fact, the JFF received around $6 million less than the other 33 bodies combined. The top four recipients were the only associations to receive more than $10 million in funding. $40M FOR MEETlast_img read more

Photo by Randolph B. LeongsonAlab Pilipinas got off to a poor start and that ultimately caused its downfall in a close 92-89 defeat to Hong Kong Eastern Sports Club on Sunday in the 2018 Asean Basketball League.“I think it was really a tale of two halves. In the first half, we had 15 turnovers, but in the second half, we only had three. I think if we would have played with the sense of urgency like we did in the second half in the first half, I think the outcome could have been different,” said Alapag, who made his head coaching debut.ADVERTISEMENT Bobby Ray Parks Jr. did pick up the slack in the second half to lead Alab’s belated rally. That effort was a welcome sight for Alapag as the home crew came one Urbiztondo desperation three away from forcing overtime against the defending ABL champion.“I was very pleased with our effort in the second half,” he said. “But we need not just 20 minutes, it needs to be a 40-minute effort.”Rather than dwell on the defeat, Alapag noted the game should serve as a pick off point for Alab as it seeks to bounce back in its next game against Singapore on November 29 in Sta. Rosa, Laguna.“It was definitely something that we can build off of. Despite the loss, there were a lot of positives we can build on,” he said, not just for the players but also for the coaches themselves.“When you’ve played for so long, it’s a much different perspective. When you’re playing, you’re focused on making the shot or making the assist. But now when you’re coaching, you’re trying to put the pieces together to make it work with the five guys on the court,” shared the PBA legend. “Just like the players have to get back to work in practice, I’ll do my part watching video tonight and making sure that we’re better next game.”ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Steam emission over Taal’s main crater ‘steady’ for past 24 hours It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set MOST READ Booed by PH crowd, Standhardinger delivers for Hong Konglast_img read more
