first_imgA Liberian man, who collapsed while watching Arsenal losing to Chelsea on Saturday afternoon, was pronounced dead by doctors after he was rushed to a local clinic in Monrovia.According to eyewitnesses, shortly after the game ended in favor of Chelsea with 2 over Arsenal, the elderly man, only identified as Fofana, fell to the ground.“Fofana apparently had a heart attack when the final whistle sounded,” an eyewitness told this newspaper, following the stampede that ensued after the match, at a video club on Benson and Lynch Street in Central Monrovia.The deceased, a resident of Clara Town, was a professional tailor, who worked as president of the Fofana Tailoring Shop on Benson Street, neighbors said.Paramedics, who arrived at the video club around 2p.m. and took the man to the clinic, confirmed his death.An eyewitness, who claimed to be a Chelsea fan, said Mr. Fofana’s death was a tragedy, because he was a loyal member of Arsenal Club. It was also reported that a van conveying Mr. Fofana’s body to a local mosque was reportedly involved in a crash on Broad Street, Crown Hill.Meanwhile, in keeping with the Moslem tradition, the remains of Fofana were reportedly buried yesterday morning. On the game itself Coach Jose Mourinho was full of praise for his players, following Chelsea’s 2-0 win over Arsenal at Stamford Bridge Saturday.The Blues scored twice in the second half, through Kurt Zouma and Eden Hazard, to secure a much-needed three points, and it was no more than the team deserved having been much the better side.The visitors had both Gabriel and Santi Cazorla sent off, but Mourinho preferred to focus on the qualities of his own side.“It was a very good performance, a deserved victory, I’m happy with the performance and points,” Jose Mourinho, Chelsea’s Manager said after the match.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Jordan’s career day gives lift to Raiders, 19-13

admin no comments

first_img Enter LaMont Jordan. The Raiders’ other big acquisition on offense ran for a career-high 126 yards and a score, Sebastian Janikowski kicked four field goals and Oakland’s defense mounted a late goal-line stand in a 19-13 win Sunday. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe top 10 theme park moments of 2019 “I will forever look at it as teams saying we can’t run the ball,” said Jordan, who bounced back from a 19-yard performance last week against Philadelphia. “I encourage defenses to play that way. If you play two-deep defense against us with the way we’re capable of running the ball … we are going to run the ball down your throat. I think today was a true test of that.” A week after gaining just 21 yards as a team, Jordan and the offensive line took it upon themselves to fix the running game. They succeeded from the start, as Jordan frequently got tough yards up the middle. “We were determined to get running yards, especially after being shut down last week,” offensive lineman Barry Sims said. “We really wanted to get LaMont going. And you can’t go when there’s no where to go, so we really wanted to get some lanes opened up for him.” The Cowboys kept it interesting until the final 2 minutes. Dallas (2-2), trailing 19-13 after Janikowski’s 43-yard field goal with 4:29 left, drove inside the 5-yard line with help from a 57-yard pass from Drew Bledsoe to Terry Glenn. But Tommy Kelly dropped Julius Jones for a 2-yard loss on second down from the 3, and Bledsoe followed with incompletions to Keyshawn Johnson and Glenn to turn it over with 1:45 to go. Jason Witten was open in the end zone on the last play, but Bledsoe said he had chosen to go toward Glenn’s side and didn’t see Witten. “It’s a three-step drop. He just has to make a decision to go the other way with the ball,” Witten said. “I’m not doubting his decision. He’s got Keyshawn and Terry over there. He’s got to make a quick decision and go with it. I was open. That’s for sure.” Jordan then ran twice for a first down and Oakland (1-3) ran out the clock to head into next week’s bye with a much-needed win. Kerry Collins threw to Moss only three times in the opening half. He connected on the long pass on the first drive to set up Janikowski’s 30-yard field goal and threw in his direction on back-to-back plays to open the second quarter. Moss, who had 10 touchdowns in his first five games against Dallas, finished with four receptions for 123 yards and remained unbeaten in six games against the Cowboys. Collins finished 13 for 23 for 218 yards, extending his streak without an interception to a career-high 149 passes, dating to last season. “I definitely didn’t play my best game today but I didn’t turn it over and I made some smart decisions at times that ultimately helped us win the ballgame,” Collins said. “The other guys picked me up today. LaMont and the other guys up front did an excellent job.” Oakland’s defense played a big role in holding Jones to 76 yards on 22 carries and limiting Dallas to 146 yards through three quarters. “I know they think Julius Jones is the next Emmitt Smith,” Oakland safety Stuart Schweigert said. “I played against the guy in college and he’s a good running back but he’s not a great running back. We knew we were going to shut down the running. That allowed us to get some sacks and pressure on Bledsoe.” Janikowski, who missed four field goals the first three games, kicked short field goals in the first half and a 49- and 43-yarder in the fourth quarter. “I didn’t change a thing,” Janikowski said. “I worked the whole week with the same approach I always do.” Bledsoe hit Patrick Crayton on a 63-yard touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter to make it 16-13. Bledsoe finished 11 of 26 for 212 yards. “We feel like we missed out on an opportunity here,” Bledsoe said. “We made a lot of mistakes in the ballgame that really hurt us in the end.” The Raiders, the most penalized team in the NFL, committed 13 more infractions, including three in the first 74 seconds of the fourth quarter. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

After that, his biggest contribution to the Raiders’ first win came in the running game. But the talented receiver didn’t run a long reverse or throw a big downfield block. His presence instead kept the Cowboys’ safeties away from the line. last_img read more
