The perfect fire – AS.com

first_imgIt seemed that the only thing that could alter the Barça in San Mamés, in addition to the unique atmosphere that is lived in the Cathedral, were the nightmares of Paris, Turin, Rome or Anfield. This weak-minded Barça smelled like psychological thriller and corpse in Bilbao. But the thing has risen in temperature to the point that the culé dressing room has been lit by the friendly fire and arrives in flames at the San Mamés volcano. It is the perfect fire (follow the match live on As.com).It is impossible to foresee Barça’s response tonight in San Mamés, but there will be no half measures. An indolent team that passes everything in the middle of this giant building that falls apart is an option, but not quite feasible. At the end, it would be a group of players voluntarily putting themselves in the trigger. Although I no longer achieve excellence often, this club still has gas for some great dance. In the middle of the focus is Messi. Those who know him well say that there is nothing worse than angering him on the grass. Well he knew Balenziaga, today unveiled, in the 2015 Cup final. But this time it already comes on for the events. If Athletic pays the broken plates of the crisis with Abidal, will have a problem. But sometimes, bad mood makes you lose focus. Your answer, clairvoyant or erratic, will determine this face or cross.And then there is Athletic, which also plays. 23 Cups contemplate you and a pride and instinct for special survival in the competition. An allegal pilgrimage of Herrerín and a miracle of Yuri saved him in Elche and Tenerife. Not only that. They unleashed the euphoria in the city, where there are already leaflets in the bars with buses announcing to go to the final. This is Bilbao, excessive and delivered with a tournament that is so yours that Piru Gainza He is still the player with the most Cups (seven), ahead of legends like Busquets, Piqué and Messi (six). It is a big game without a favorite. Barça has Messi. The great Athletic is his liturgy. They add 53 titles. Long live the Cup.last_img read more

Starlets hit Malawi,keep Olympic dream alive

first_imgStarlets put themselves on the advantage after 19 minutes when Shilwatso struck her second in as many games with a low shot from the edge of the box after picking up a poorly defended ball.The girls got just what they needed, an early goal to calm their nerves and put them in control. They had started the game on the front foot and before the goal had chances to break the deadlock.As early as the fifth minute, the home girls had caused the first threat, Elizabeth Wambui striking the upright with a stinging shot after skipping past her marker on the right.Kenya’s danger girl Mwanahalima Adam who was tightly marked the entire contest had an effort at goal in the 16th minute when a poorly defended ball landed on her path but her effort with a first time volley flew straight to the keeper.The array of attacks by Kenya continued with Gentrix Shikangwa forcing the keeper into a good save with a curling freekick from the right.Harambee Starlets forward Cynthia Shilwatso controls the ball against a Malawi opponent during an Olympic qualifier at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on September 1, 2019. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluWambui had a golden chance for Kenya with 10 minutes left to the break when the ball landed graciously on her path a yard off goal. When it was harder to miss the opportunity than score, the Kenyan winger skied the ball over the bar.Malawi had been limited to few half chances and their danger girl Tabitha Chawinga was closely guarded by Kenyan skipper Dorcas Shikobe who breathed on her neck everywhere she ran.Her sister Temwa with whom they had masterminded the first leg victory was also anonymous as the Kenyan backline keenly tracked her every move.In the second half, Malawi came back a stronger side and threatened Starlets from the first whistle. In the 55th minute, Madina Nguluwe came close with a freekick but the Kenyan keeper turned it behind for a corner.Two minutes later, Tabitha had a shot come off the crossbar when she struck a freekick from distance and the Kenyan keeper did well once again to thwart Nguluwe’s effort on the rebound turning it behind for a corner.On the opposite end, Starlets should have taken the game to comfort, but Shilwatso was denied her second of the evening when her rasping shot from inside the box came against the bar.Harambee Starlets forward Mwanahalima Adam strides forward against a Malawi opponent during an Olympic qualifier at the Kenyatta Stadium in Machakos on September 1, 2019.

California Episcopalians to vote on secession

first_imgFRESNO – The world will be watching this weekend as California Episcopal leaders decide whether to pull out of the American church. Delegates from 14 California counties will vote today on whether to leave the U.S. Episcopal Church, confirming a preliminary vote last year. It would be the first diocese to leave the U.S. Episcopal Church, which has 110 dioceses and 2.4million members. The Diocese of San Joaquin is made up of 48 congregations with 10,276 members. At issue are differences over homosexuality and the Bible. Delegates are looking to break away from the church because it allows the blessing of same-sex unions, the ordination of gay bishops and the ordination of women as priests. These issues have put the U.S. Episcopal Church at odds with the worldwide Anglican Communion since 2003, when the Episcopal Church consecrated V. Gene Robinson of New Hampshire as its first openly gay bishop. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREPettersson scores another winner, Canucks beat Kings“It’s a troubling time,” said Cindy Smith, president of Remain Episcopal, a Fresno-based organization opposing the split. “Any way this works out, there will be people who feel excluded or unhappy – and that’s the most unfortunate thing. There’s no winner in this.” The split requires two-thirds approval by both clergy delegates and lay delegates. The margin could be narrower than it was last year, diocese officials say. The preliminary vote to split last year was approved 68-16 by clergy and 108-12 by laity. “When there is a second vote, there are people who don’t feel the same latitude,” said the Rev. Van McCalister, spokesman for the diocese headquarters in Fresno. “This vote is the real thing.” Bishop John-David Schofield of the Diocese of Fresno on Wednesday rejected an appeal from U.S. Presiding Bishop Katharine Jefferts Schori urging Schofield to “reconsider and draw back” from efforts to withdraw the Diocese of San Joaquin from the Episcopal Church. In a letter to Jefferts Schori, Schofield said the convention vote would continue as planned. If the proposal fails, the process dies — and would have to start all over again for the diocese to leave the Episcopal Church. If the proposal passes, delegates will decide when the split officially takes place and when related business will be completed. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
