Long-time Waterhouse saviour Lamey returns in 0-0 draw

first_img Yesterday’s results Kevin Lamey’s first Red Stripe Premier League football game in over two years and his first for Waterhouse in over five years ended in a 0-0 draw against Boys’ Town at Barbican Complex yesterday. The striker, who is revered by the Waterhouse faithfuls, showed glimpses of his abilities despite looking a bit short on pace. However, coach Paul Young, who brought in the veteran to add experience and to guide the youngers, thought the 40-year-old was excellent on the day and voted him as his Man of the Match. “Lamey was brought in to add experience, and we know the notoriety of Lamey; he is a true finisher. He can offer some help as he holds the ball up well at the top of field and brings the midfielders into play, and he did that brilliantly. For a player who has not played 90 minutes for so long, he did extremely well. He was my Man of the Match today. But Lamey is here to help guide the youngsters, and when he can score, he will score,” Young insisted. In a hotly contested game, which saw Waterhouse being reduced to 10 men following a second yellow card to Rohan Amos on 56 minutes, both teams had great chances to score, with Peter Keyes getting the bulk of the chances for Boys’ Town and Kenroy Howell getting the better opportunities for Waterhouse. Keyes thought he had given Boys’ Town the lead after 15 minutes, but the goal was waved off for offside. The former Waterhouse player then had two other great chances in that first-half and another three in the second half, but he volleyed over with only the goalkeeper to beat in the 68th minute, and then headed against the post a minute later, with two of his better opportunities. Howell was equally threatening for Waterhouse as Boys’ Town found it difficult to track his runs from deep. He had three great chances in the first period, the best of which came on 45 minutes at the end of a solo run. But he muffed his effort with Lamey wide open. After the break, Howell remained Waterhouse’s biggest scoring option, and 15 minutes from the end, he was unfortunate to see his effort from six yards rebound off the bar and back into the arms of goalkeeper Mikhail Harrison. Sean Coleman and Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson, who came on as a late sub in the 75th minute, also came close for Waterhouse. The match ended on an ugly noted after Anderson was alleged to have elbowed Boys’ Town defender Xavier Virgo, rendering him temporarily unconscious and with a suspected fractured nose. Virgo was taken to hospital for treatment. Boys’ Town’s head coach, Andrew Price, said he would have to review the incident before commenting. However, he believes they had the better chances to win, even though they were missing five regular starters. “We had enough dominance to have won the game. We got a number of chances, and our forwards were not clinical in front of goal. Otherwise, we should have won by a wide margin,” he said. Boys’ Town stayed sixth with 26 points, while Waterhouse remained at the bottom on 16, two points behind Rivoli and three adrift of Tivoli.

LMA To Erect Billboard

first_imgThe country representative of the Liberian Music Awards Foundation (LMA), Joseph Junior Teah has disclosed that his institution has finalized plans to erect billboards across the country, to boost the ongoing awareness program about the LMA voting process. He said this billboard project is part of the LMA’s initiative to ensure that ordinary Liberians understand the SMS (text massage) and the online “voting Code” process.”If we don’t implement many strategies for fans back home to understand the voting code process, at the end of the day they will lose creditability in the LMA,” he added. He also said the LMA will work out other strategies that are intended to make fans exclusively a part of the process, whose ultimate goal is the promotion of the music industry.But he said that since the LMA launched the voting code process, the voting result that they have received so far has been impressive. The LMA team is now asking fans to help spread the message to relatives and friends, who may still not have a clear idea of the voting code.Deputy Minister of Information Isaac Jackson was quoted in FPA as saying “Let the organizers keep on their good work; I think it will help government plans for the entertainment industry,”  “While LMA is doing all it can to ensure the active participation of fans to vote for their artists of choice, we are also calling on nominees to actively educate their fans about the voting code and how it works,” Teah said. The LMA voting code is a platform that is powered by Cellcom GSM, to ensure transparent and inclusive voting process for this year’s award programs, enabling fans with the opportunity of voting via SMS (text massage) as well as online.Fans can vote for this year’s LMA, using the voting code assigned to each artist or nominee. The voting cost is 50 cent per SMS (text massage) while online voting is available only through the LMA website www. liberianmusicawards.comThe voting poll was opened to the public on April 1 and is expected to end June 16, 2015.He said further that it is time that artists get involved with communication or campaigning with their fans, because the fans are the people who make them win.”But if any artists think that they can win without the votes of their fans, the result shouldn’t be a shock to them if it’s not in their favor,” he advised.He also disclosed that immediately after the implementation of the billboard project, the LMA will embark on hosting shows across the country as part of its strategies to create more awareness.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
