Gers down Linfield

first_img Press Association The Belfast side travelled across the Irish Sea last night – their first trip to Glasgow’s south side – after having stepped in to host a fundraising match last May when the former Scottish champions found themselves mired in a financial crisis that eventually led to their liquidation. Now reformed but playing in the Irn-Bru Third Division, Rangers proved too strong for the Northern Irishmen as they secured victory with goals from Chris Hegarty and youngster Andrew Murdoch. Light Blues boss Ally McCoist paid his part-time visitors full respect by putting out a strong starting line-up, but Rangers struggled to get out of first gear in the early stages, mustering only an Ian Black drive on the half-hour mark before surviving a scare as Matthew Tipton pulled a decent chance wide. It took until three minutes before the half-time break for the hosts to net as Hegarty found the corner of the goal from Fraser Aird’s deep cross. The second half was interrupted by a raft of substitutions. Linfield captain Peter Thompson did have the ball in the net after 65 minutes only to see his big moment ruined by an offside flag. However, Rangers wrapped it up with the last kick of the game as midfielder Murdoch’s deflected 25-yard drive deceived Alan Blayney and found its way home. center_img Rangers repaid Linfield for helping out in their hour of need by handing them a narrow 2-0 friendly defeat at Ibrox.last_img read more

Local cyclists fail to medal at Pan American road race cycling championship

first_img… but turn in creditable performances amid challenging conditionsGUYANA’S six-member team who competed in the just concluded 32nd Pan American road cycling championship in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic failed to medal but despite challenging conditions, turned in creditable performances.Last Sunday, Guyana’s Paul DeNobrega and Junior Niles competed in the 170km race which was staged around the Mirader Sur Park that has a 10km circuit and at the end of the race, DeNobrega finished the gruelling event in the 44th position while Niles placed 69th.It was probably the highest level of competition for the two Guyanese as they came up against some of the best cyclists in the Pan American group.Colombian Andres Martinez (3:18.47) won ahead of Mexico’s Alfredo Infante, Sebastin Benarides (Colombia), Francisco Chomarro (Argentina) and Ignacio Maldonado (Uruguay) respectively.Barbadian Phillip Clarke ended 13th and Cuba’s Felix Fernandez 14th.Meanwhile, on Saturday, Andrew Hicks, Hamza Eastman and Jamal contested a 140km race for Under-23 cyclists and in the end, Eastman placed 20th of 71 riders while John finished 36th. Hicks, who was with the leading bunch nearing the finish, developed cramps in both his legs and had to settle for 69th.It must be noted that on the local scene, cyclists are not accustomed to such long races and especially on hilly courses and that made the exposure important for the Guyanese.Some 240 cyclists from 27 Pan American nations participated in the championships and these cyclists came from other countries including Cuba, Colombia, United States, Uruguay, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Guatemala and Mexico.last_img read more

That meant the first game.” Bryant missed six of the past 10 games because of a sore right shoulder.
