Humble Lion looking to win first RSPL title – Williams

first_img Before that, Reno were left counting their lucky stars when referee Karl Tyrell turned down a penalty shout from Humble Lion, when a defender obstructed the forward run of Kirk Duckworth into the area. The draw kept Humble Lion fourth in the 12-team points table on 40 points, while Reno are doing their best to avoid the relegation battle. They have 31 points, two places above the red zone. “I am not altogether disappointed. Today (yesterday), I thought we played a good game. We were a little unlucky, but that’s part of the game,” said Michael Graham, the FC Reno coach. “We still aren’t putting away our chances and that is hurting us, but we are confident that we will survive the scrap heap this time around,” added Graham. WESTERN BUREAU: Injury-prone Levaughn Williams scored as Humble Lion FC earned a hard-fought 1-1 draw with FC Reno at Frome Sports Complex in yesterday’s round of matches of the Red Stripe Premier League. Williams told The Gleaner after the drawn encounter that his team was in the right frame of mind to hold on to a semi-final spot. “It was a difficult game. Reno played us hard as they are battling relegation and we are seeking to hold on to fourth or climb as high as we can in the table with the semi-finals around the corner,” the attacking midfielder said. The former national representative scored in the 53rd minute to cancel out Roshane Sharpe’s 16th minute strike for the hosts. FC Reno’s goalie Joel Johnson raced off his line to collect a through pass into the area, but Williams poked the ball around Johnson before slamming the ball home for the equaliser. Williams said he was delighted to have scored, but felt Humble Lion deserved the three points. “This is just us building towards our end of season goal, which is to become Red Stripe Premier League champions for the first time. But that will not happen until we hold our position in the top four and then move from there and, of course, win the final should we get there,” Williams said. The game was there for the taking for either team, and in stoppage time, FC Reno came close when right-back Shamar Bernard struck a fierce shot but found the firm hands of Humble Lion goalkeeper Kadeem Davis.

Need to inculcate value system in children through literature Dy CM

first_imgNew Delhi: Deputy Chief Minister of Delhi, Manish Sisodia attended the International Conference on Children’s literature — Adaab-e-Atfaal: Simt-o-Raftar, organised by the Urdu Academy in the city on Thursday. At the event Deputy CM felicitated authors of Urdu literature and released a set of 25 books. According to a report Sisodia in his address spoke about the need to improve the quality of children’s literature and the conditioned mind set it imposes on its young readers. He said, “While writing stories for children, we should make sure that we understand their minds first. Understanding ‘baal mann’ is the need of the hour. Writing about fairy tales gives false hopes to our children, we are also instilling distorted mind sets in them. Beautiful princess stories make the child think that external beauty is required to be loved in society. Hence, we can see the demand for fairness creams among youngsters”.last_img read more
