Man United captain Rooney raises $1.5m from charity game

MANCHESTER, England (AP) — Manchester United captain Wayne Rooney says he raised 1.2 million pounds ($1.5 million) from a friendly game against former club Everton last year. That represents the profits, after operational costs, from August's sellout match at Old Trafford and goes toward the Wayne Rooney Foundation's target of raising 5 million pounds for children's charities. Rooney said: 'I'd like to thank all the fans who came to the testimonial and made it such a special night. They've raised a huge amount of money for children who are disadvantaged and it will make a real difference to their lives.' Rooney is one goal from breaking Manchester United's scoring record, with the striker currently tied with Bobby Charlton on 249 goals. Rooney joined United from Everton in 2004. .....»»

Lionesses secure semis spot playoff

San Beda College played with fire and almost got itself burned but the Lionesses regrouped just in time to turn back the feisty Mapua Lady Cardinals, 25-16, 25-15, 22-25, 20-25, 15-9, Friday to secure at least a playoff for a semis berth in the 92nd NCAA women’s volleyball tournament. The Lionesses dodged an upset at The Arena in San Juan to improve to 6-3 win-loss record which equaled the college’s best finish back in 2014 when San Beda was then led by Frances Molina and Janine Marciano. Francesca Racraquin, who suffered muscle spasms on her left abdomen after the game, finished with 16 points while Satrianni Espiritu had 13 for the Mendiola-based squad. “Masaya kami nakapasok kami sa playoff pero mas masaya kami kung nasa Final Four na kami,” said SBC head coach Nemesio Gavino. The mentor fielded his second stringers in the third set pulling some of his starters with San Beda ahead in the match 2-0. But the Lady Cardinals, hungry for a taste of victory, took advantage of the Lionesses’ gamble with Patricia Pena, Dianne Latayan and Danielle Ramilo leading the way to steal the third frame. Smelling blood, Mapua raced to a 21-17 lead in the fourth set and never looked back to force a decider. San Beda with their season on the line fought back to build an 8-3 lead only to see Mapua close the gap, 11-9, in the fifth set. Racraquin sparked the Lionesses closing rally with an off the block kill to finish off the Lady Cardinals, who closed their season without a win. “Gusto ko rin kasi sana bigyan ang second stringers ko ng kompiyansa kasi hindi naman pwedeng sa first six lang umasa ang team ko eh. Tulad nga nu’ng nangyari kay Cesca kailangan talagang ilabas kasi pagod na,” said Gavino. “Nu’ng dumating ang fifth set sinabi ko sa kanila na kalimutan na ang lahat ng set mag-focus na lang sa last set para mawala lahat ng frustrations kasi nakatanbla sila eh,” he added. Pena had 13 points while Latayan and Ramilo each had 10 markers for the Intramuros-based squad. In men’s play, San Beda completed the Final Four roster by eliminating Mapua, 22-25, 25-23, 25-13, 25-13. The Red Lions finished the elims with a 7-2 card and secured at least a playoff for a Final Four twice-to-beat advantage, while sending the Cardinals packing with a 5-4 mark. SBC joined College of St. Benilde (7-1), Arellano University (6-2) and defending champion Perpetual Help (6-1), who is playing also ran Jose Rizal University as of posting time, in the Final Four.           ---     Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles            .....»»

PSA to honor Diaz as 2016 Athlete of the Year

Behind her powerful arms and legs, a young petite lady gave Philippine sports a lift it badly needed in the year just passed. Weightlifter Hidilyn Diaz gave this country of 100 million people something to cheer about at the break of dawn one rainy day in August after copping an Olympic medal that was long overdue during the 2016 Rio De Janeiro Games. A combination of hard work, effort, heart, and sheer luck paved the way for the 25-year-old pride of Zamboanga City to run away with the silver in the women’s 53-kg weight division behind eventual winner Hsu Shu-Ching of Chinese Taipei. Diaz totaled a combined 200 kgs. in both the snatch and clean and jerk to the 212 of the Taiwanese bet. An Airwoman First Class at the Philippine Air Force, Diaz was only hoping for a bronze medal finish, but ended up a surprise runner up when fancied Li Yaiun of China – who earlier set an Olympic record in the snatch - failed to complete her final two attempts in the clean and jerk. “Sabi ko thank you Lord. Bronze lang ang hinihingi ko, pero silver ang ibinigay mo,” said Diaz moments after her triumph as the first-ever Filipina to win an Olympic medal. The Cinderella finish by Diaz was the first for the country in the last 20 years since boxer Mansueto ‘Onyok’ Velasco punched his way to a similar silver medal feat during the 1996 Atlanta Olympics. Hidilyn also became the first Filipino weightlifter to win an Olympic medal for the country and the only one to bag a silver outside of boxers Velasco and the late Anthony Villanueva (1964 Tokyo Games). In the light of her outstanding feats, the Philippine Sportswriters Association (PSA) was one and unanimous in naming Diaz its 2016 Athlete of the Year during its traditional Awards Night presented by MILO and San Miguel on Feb. 13 at the LE PAVILION in Pasay City. Diaz is the first lady to be feted by the country’s oldest media organization with its highest individual honor after boxer Josie Gabuco and the Team Manila women’s softball team in 2012. “This one is a no-brainer. Hidilyn Diaz is truly the hands-down choice as the 2016 PSA Athlete of the Year,” said PSA president Riera Mallari, sports editor of The Standard. Last year, pro boxers Nonito Donaire Jr. and Donnie Nietes, along with young golfer Miguel Tabuena were the recipient of the coveted award annually handed out by the PSA, comprised by editors and sportswriters from the different broadsheets, tabloids, and online portals in the country. Diaz, who came home empty handed during both the 2008 (Beijing) and 2012 (London) Olympics, respectively, leads a long list of personalities and entities to be recognized during the formal rite co-presented by CIGNAL/HYPHER TV. In the coming days and weeks, recipients of the President’s Award, Lifetime Achievement honor, Executive of the Year, National Sports Association of the Year, Mr. Basketball, Mr. Golf, Mr. Football, and Ms. Volleyball will also be named as part of the two-hour program backed by Smart, Foton, Mighty Sports, Philippine Basketball Association, ACCEL, Gold Toe, SM Prime Holdings Inc., Globalport, Rain or Shine, ICTSI, and MVPSF. There will also be major awardees in different sports and citations to various personalities and entities in the annual rite backed by the Philippine Sports Commission, Philippine Charity Sweepstakes Office, and Federal Land. Not to be missed out is the PSA’s recognition to young promising achievers such as the Tony Siddayao Awards and the Milo Male and Female Junior Athletes of the Year, as well as posthumous awards to those dearly departed friends of the local sportswriting community.   .....»»
