  • Kenya beats Tanzania, books Burundi in CECAFA semis

    first_img0Shares0000Vincent Oburu celebrates his goal against Tanzania. PHOTO/Timothy OlobuluMACHAKOS, Kenya, Dec 11- Kenya’s Harambee Stars have qualified for the CECAFA Senior Challenge Cup semi-finals as Group A winners after beating Tanzania 1-0 in Machakos on Monday and will pay Group B’s second placed side Burundi in Machakos on Thursday.Kenya finished the group stage matches with eight points, one ahead of Zanzibar who will play defending champions and Group B winners Uganda Cranes in the second semi on Friday. AFC Leopards forward Vincent Oburu repaid the faith shown in him by head coach Paul Put handing him his first ever start for the national team as he tapped home a 20th minute goal to hand Stars the win.Put made changes to his forward line for his fourth match in charge of the team, handing Oburu a starting role as the team’s lead strikers supported on either wing by George Odhiambo and Ovella Ochieng.Chris Oduor who started ahead of Whyvonne Isuza was handed the supporting striker’s role, playing behind Oburu. Gor Mahia midfield workhorse Ernest Wendo also started his first match for the national team, coming in the place of Duncan Otieno.Libya’s 1-0 win over Zanzibar in the early kick off handed Kenya a confidence boost of sorts as they knew they only needed a point to get t the last four. However, the pressure was for them to win and top the group.They should have opened the scoring five minutes into the tie when a mistake by Erasto Nyoni in his own box handed Ovellah Ochieng a chance, but the Kariobangi Sharks forward placed the ball over with only the keeper to beat.Chris Oduor wins the ball against Tanzania’s Abdul HassanEarlier on, Odhiambo had come close for Kenya with a  low shot from the edge of the area which went wide.Stars were dominating possession but were guilty of losing it often, the biggest culprits being Ovella on the right and Oduor who had been deployed as the support striker behind Oburu.Ovella however made amends in the 20th minute, this time not taking too many touches. He set himself up with the first touch before crossing low into the box to an awaiting Oburu who had the simplest task of tapping the ball gone with the keeper beaten.It was a pressure relieving goal for Kenya who had only scored one from open play prior.Tanzania though grew in confidence after going down as they sought for an equalizer, but they couldn’t breach a watertight Kenyan backline.In the 32nd minute defender Dennis Sikhayi almost caught Tanzania keeper Peter Manyika offguard with a long range effort which however went wide.In the second half, there wasn’t much of action infront of goal. The best chances of the last 45 fell on Odhiambo whose first shot from the left was saved by the keeper while in his second attempt, his outstretched foot three yards off goal failed to connect to an Ochieng cross.0Shares0000(Visited 3 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

    first_imgA Donegal man who was told by surgeons to stop running a number of years ago notched up his 100th marathon today!Peter celebrates with his 100th marathon medal!When Peter McGlynn underwent a quadruple heart by-pass after completing his 67th marathon, most thought his race days were behind him.A round of golf or a spot of fishing were probably what the doctor ordered. But those who knew the Letterkenny man allowed themselves a gentle smile at the thought of Peter throwing his runners into a cupboard to gather dust.But the Bomany man is no ordinary athlete.So when he completed his 100th such race this afternoon in Longford, some weren’t that surprised at all.As the former HSE employee puts it ‘They told me to perhaps not run another marathon but they said nothing about walking them.” Peter can be seen tramping the streets in and around Letterkenny and into the wider countryside most days.Peter celebrates with his friend Seamus Temple at the finish line today.If he’s not with his trusted friends Seamus Temple and Jimmy Harte, he’s alone but always raising a hand to the endless motorists who salute him.Today he nipped in under the six hour mark and told Donegal Daily he was delighted having reached a century of marathons.The ever-competitive athlete said “We were over three hours at the half-way stage so we had plenty of ground to make up.“I’m delighted we did and I’m delighted to have completed one hundred marathons. I feel great but I am tired. “I need a bit of a rest before I can even think of celebrating,” he said.Peter was met at the finish line by his friend and fellow marathon man Seamus Temple of Crievesmith, Letterkenny.At 70 years young Seamus completed the half marathon version of the race in preparation for the Dublin City Marathon in October.His friend Senator Jimmy Harte was also one of the first to congratulate Peter. Today Donegal Daily salutes Peter.He’s an inspiration to young and old that life is for living and not sitting around growing old.PETER BAFFLES THE DOCS TO NOTCH UP HIS 100TH MARATHON was last modified: August 25th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:heart by-passletterkennyMarathonPeter McGlynnlast_img read more
