Photo/GERALD ANDERSONKAKAMEGA, Kenya, Mar 25 – Plateau Queens from Nyanza stunned favourites Tar Tar from Rift Valley after winning 4-3 in post-match penalties to be crowned the Girls Chapa Dimba Na Safaricom champions in a pulsating decider hosted at a full to capacity Bukhungu Stadium on Sunday.This is after the match had ended 1-1 following Tar Tar’s late equaliser through Cheyesh Jeniffer who cancelled out an own goal that had sent Plateau ahead in the 66th minute. Plateau won Sh1mn prize and a life time trip to London where they will train for one week as well as receiving mentorship from the tournament’s brand ambassador Victor Wanyama.Plateau goalkeeper, Judith Osimbo won the Golden Glove, Mercy Akinyi scooped the Golden Boot award after netting five goals while Beryl Eshiteku from Plateau was named the Most Valuable Player.Plateau Queens celebrating. Photo/GERALD ANDERSONBoth teams got the support of their 12th man and as teams were ushered into the pitch, the fans -Plateau seating on the left side of the stadium and Tar Tar on the right, were competing on who will be loudest in rallying support to their respective teams.Tar Tar fondly referred as the Super Maroon, entered the match as favourites, going by their past experience and not only getting support from the County Government of West Pokot represented by their Sports  CS, they took time to sing their anthem conducted by their band.It was a tense final with both sides approaching the match with caution where Plateau went for a 2-3-3-2 formation as Tar Tar preferred for a more attacking approach.-Second Half-Plateay Queens keeper Judith Osimbo going for the ball. Photo/GERALD ANDERSONIt was Osimbo the busiest, pulling a crucial save in the 4th minute when she rushed of her line to clear the ball that was miss-cued by her stopper Winnie Akinyi.The Plateau defence was caught off-guard most of the times with their back-fine failing to clear away dangers, handing their keeper much task to perform though they were good on attack orchestrated by Sylvia Nabwire on the flanks but the solid defence of Tar Tar could not allow her to break through.In the 38th minute, Tar Tar was dispossessed in the midfield for Nabwire to break through on the left to cut cross for Margaret Atieno who feebly shot direct to keeper Lilian Achieng.Tar Tar players coming to terms after the loss. Photo/GERALD ANDERSONThe second half was more of open play as Plateau’s attack paid dividends when Tar Tar failed to handle pressure to see their defender Lindi Nanjala flick a header for own goal to silence the Tar Tar fans and send theirs into a frenzy.The goal changed the dynamics of Tar Tar who surged forward in search of the equaliser which came three minutes to stoppage time courtesy of a well taken shot by Cheyech from 18 yards to force the match into post-match penalties.Osimbo was the heroine when she saved one kick before a Tar Tar player blazed over as her corresponding counterpart from Tar Tar rescued one.Plateau converted four kicks against Tar Tar’s three.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Alicia Villarreal kept returning to the spot where a crossing guard was hit by a truck and dragged about 45 feet down the street – still shocked that someone could run down a human being and then just walk away. “I was yelling, `Stop! Stop!’ I don’t know if he didn’t see Jaime or what, but he just kept going,” said Villarreal. She was just feet from crossing guard Jaime Meza on Wednesday morning when the 50-year-old Whittier man stepped off the curb at Greenstone Avenue in Norwalk and was instantly hit by a red Toyota pickup. “\ got out, then got back in and pulled the truck over, then he left. I couldn’t believe he just walked away,” she said. Meza had to be airlifted to Los Angeles County-USC Medical Center with serious head wounds. He was released on Saturday from the hospital. Investigators are still looking for the suspect, a 30- to 40-year-old man identified as Jose Francisco Velez Serrano of Artesia, who had just purchased the truck. The incident and thousands of others have given California the dishonorable distinction of having the nation’s highest rate of hit-and-run collisions, according to the Insurance Information Institute. Last year, 8,250 hit-and-run collisions involving injury or death were reported on the streets of Los Angeles County. The figure makes Los Angeles the third highest-ranking county for hit-and-runs in a survey of 58 counties statewide, according to the state Office of Traffic Safety. Locally in 2004, La Habra ranked 12th out of 97 cities with populations between 50,000 and 100,000 surveyed for hit-and-runs crashes by the state office. Whittier was not far behind, ranking at 25th. Montebello ranked 32nd in the state; Pico Rivera ranked 42nd; and La Mirada was 52nd, according to the state agency’s statistics. “I really think juries have no sympathy for these people,” said Joe Zizi, public affairs officer for the California Highway Patrol’s Southern Division. “They forget that if the CHP officer gets their license plate number, they’ll be getting a visit at their house, followed by a ride to jail.” Under California law, a driver involved in any accident resulting in injury or death must stop immediately and report the crash, or else face a felony violation that can lead to up to four years in county jail and a fine of up to $10,000. Hit-and-run drivers who damage property can be charged with a misdemeanor, leading to up to six months in jail and $1,000 in fines. Zizi said many people run because they are scared of getting in trouble. Others often grossly underestimate the damage they inflict. “People think they only tapped someone, so they take off. But they may have caused major injury,” he said. “Then it becomes much more than just a traffic collision, because you risk being sent to jail. If there are injuries, you’ll be booked. It’s not worth it to hit and run.” Another primary reason people run from a collision scene is a lack of a driver license, said Montebello Police Department Chief Garry Couso-Vasquez. “In most of my 35 years in the police force, it’s the lack of a driver’s license that causes most hit-and-runs,” he said. “Other top ones are uninsured or unregistered vehicles, suspended licenses and DUI’s.” To reduce hit-and-run crashes in the city, Montebello police check for driver’s licenses during DUI check points. Drivers found violating license laws have their vehicles impounded for 30 days. Violators also pay an impound fee and a fine in order to get their vehicles back, Couso-Vasquez said. “We want to increase accountability, because people will use it as an excuse,” he said. “They’ll let someone drive their car and say, `Oh, I didn’t know he didn’t have a license.’ Well, if you let someone drive your car, you better know if they have a license.” Staff Writers Susan Abram and Molly R.
