Algeria wins African Cup title, beats Mane s Senegal 1-0

By Gerald Imray, Associated Press CAIRO (AP) — Algeria won the African Cup of Nations for the first time in nearly three decades on Friday, beating Senegal 1-0 in the final with a deflected goal in the opening seconds by striker Baghdad Bounedjah. Bounedjah's shot on Algeria's first attack deflected off Senegal defender Salif Sane and looped over goalkeeper Alfred Gomis at Cairo International Stadium. The goal was timed at 79 seconds — the fastest in an African Cup final for at least 39 years — and delivered Algeria just a second African title and first since 1990. Algeria players sprinted the length of the field and jumped over advertising boards to celebrate with their fans at the final whistle. Some players climbed the fences, fists pumping as the raucous Algeria fans surged toward them. Algeria last made the final 29 years ago, when it won its sole title before Friday. "My people have waited a long time," said Algeria coach Djamel Belmadi, a former Algeria player. "I'm very happy even if it is difficult to express. I'm tired, it's true, and it is difficult to show my emotions but when I rest my happiness will appear." Senegal and Sadio Mane trudged off the field at the 75,000-seat Cairo International Stadium disappointed again. Mane, socks down round his ankles, managed to wave to a group of supporters who cheered for him as he left. Senegal has never won the African Cup and Senegal coach Aliou Cisse had another bitter pill to swallow after missing the penalty that cost Senegal the African Cup in a shootout in its only previous appearance in the final in 2002. "This is a different generation and Algeria won," Cisse said. "They seized an opportunity and they scored." Senegal's desperate disappointment was exacerbated when it was awarded a penalty in the second half and then had it taken away following a Video Assistant Referee review. Cameroonian ref Alioum Alioum penalized Algeria's Adlane Guedioura for handball but changed his decision after consulting VAR, which is being used at the African Cup for the first time. Still, Algeria was probably a fitting champion in Egypt having won every game, including a 1-0 win over Senegal in the group stage. Algeria was captained by Riyad Mahrez, who added an African Cup title to his English Premier League title with Manchester City. He lifted the trophy in front of the president of the African soccer confederation and FIFA president Gianni Infantino as fireworks and golden glitter exploded into the air behind him. Mahrez had limited first team action with City but he was an integral part of Algeria's victory at the African Cup. His injury-time free kick put Algeria into the final and he ended with three goals, the same number as Mane. Algeria had a dream start and Senegal a nightmare when Bounedjah took advantage of open space on the left in the opening moments, swept inside and hit a shot that deflected off Sane, who was returning from injury for the final. The ball looped, almost slow motion, over Gomis, who didn't move, apparently certain that it would go over the crossbar. Bounedjah's tournament ended in joy after he attracted attention for his emotional reaction to missing a penalty in the quarterfinals. Fearing he had cost his team, Bounedjah spent much of that match crying in the dugout after he was substituted. Algeria eventually won the quarterfinal in a shootout to keep its dream alive. Senegal was initially given its penalty in the final when Sarr sped down the right wing and sent a cross in that hit Guedioura on the right arm as he held it down next to his body. There didn't appear to be any deliberate move by Guedioura to play the ball and the VAR decision appeared correct. After pointing calmly to the spot, referee Alioum jogged to the sidelines to check the VAR replays. He overturned the decision and canceled the penalty. Making its debut at the African Cup, the VAR was also used in penalty decisions in both semifinals. Algeria protected its lead for much of the game, allowing Senegal to dominate possession and push forward. But Senegal couldn't find the final touch, with its worst miss in the second half when Sarr blasted a volley over the crossbar from in front of Algeria's goal. Algeria's celebrations at the end were boisterous, with thousands of supporters making the trip across to Egypt for the final. They took up almost half of one side of the stadium and were kept in check by rows of yellow-vested security personnel who stood facing them near the field. During the celebrations, the Algeria squad and coach Belmadi kneeled down and prayed as they faced the supporters. Belmadi, who took over as coach less than a year ago, will return home a national hero......»»

Jr. Pirates embarrass NCAA 95 defending champ Red Robins

STANDINGS LPU 3-0 San Beda 3-0 Perpetual 2-1 JRU 2-1 Arellano 1-1 San Sebastian 1-1 CSB-LSGH 1-1 Letran 1-3 EAC 0-3 Mapua 0-3 Lyceum of the Philippines is still smooth sailing in the NCAA 95 Juniors Basketball Tournament after handing Mapua High School the worst loss a defending champion has had in recent history. The Jr. Pirates ran roughshod on the still Jonnel Policarpio-less Red Robins to the tune of a 35-point blowout, 101-66, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre. John Barba showed he is back at full strength following a knee injury with a 27-point, 10-rebound double-double while Jae Omandac also made an impact off the bench with 24 markers, five boards, and three assists. "Yung mga bata, ine-emphasize naming kailangang ibigay na nila dun pa lang yung best nila para madala sa game namin. Yun naman naging resulta ngayon," head coach JC Docto said post-game. Top gun Mac Guadana didn't even have to do much with only, for his standards, nine points, four rebounds, three assists, and two steals as LPU scored no less than 21 points in each and every quarter. They also made a living by turning defense into offense, forcing 23 errors from their opponents and quickly converting them into 30 big points. With the 35-point hammering of defending champion Mapua, the upstart Jr. Pirates sent a statement to the rest of the league that they are a force to reckon with. "Sa amin naman, kahit sino kalaban, champion man o walang panalo, gagawin namn best namin," coach JC said. They now stand alongside perennial powerhouse San Beda High School atop the leaderboard with a 3-0 record. On the other hand, the Red Robins dropped to 0-3 in their title defense. Without Policarpio, still dealing with personal problems, for the third game in a row, they had to lean on rookie Megan Galang once more and he had 11 points to front their effort. BOX SCORES LPU 101 - Barba 27, Omandac 24, Montano 13, Garor 9, Guadana 9, Caduyac 6, Santos 4, Gamlanga 3, Ragasa 2, Garing 2, Caringal 2, Dejelo 0, Dumon 0, Gudmalin 0, Panganiban 0 MAPUA 66 - Galang 11, Fransman 10, Echavia 7, Parinas 6, Lazarte 6, Jugo 5, Tadeo 5, Castor 3, Ejercito 3, Marcado 3, Buenaflor 2, So 0 QUARTER SCORES: 27-13, 53-35, 80-50, 101-66 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»

Petron wins fifth straight; Foton escapes in five

BACOOR CITY --- Petron brushed off a sluggish start before completing a sweep of Generika-Ayala, 26-24, 25-12, 25-19, on Tuesday in the 2019 Philippine Superliga All-Filipino Conference at the Strike Gym here. The Blaze Spikers started out flat, falling behind, 11-17, in the opening frame before sparking a huge run to turn the tables around. “Slow start lang talaga siguro yung receive at attack namin nagstruggle kami,” Petron head coach Shaq Delos Santos said. “Kahit malaki yung lamang nakakatuwa kasi hinabol talaga ng team hanggang sa naipanalo namin.” The Blaze Spikers capitalize on their first set comeback to take the fight out of the Lifesavers for their fifth straight win for a 7-1 win-loss slate. “Malaking bagay sa akin yan dahil ang Generika halos lahat ng team kaya nilang i-beat, siyempre kami din kaya rin nila kami,” added Delos Santos. “Pero siyempre pinaghandaan talaga namin sila mabuti dahil alam naming pag gumana yung team nila, mahihirapan kami.” Bernadeth Pons scored all but one of her 18 points off attacks and added nine excellent receptions for the Blaze Spikers. Ces Molina finishwd with 12 points and displayed great floor defense with 21 digs and three excellent receptions while Remy Palma got 13 markers for Petron. Angeli Araneta was the only Generika-Ayala player in double figures with 10 points. Fiola Ceballos had nine markers for the Lifesavers, who dropped to 5-3 card. Meanwhile, Foton completed a come-from-behind 18-25, 21-25, 25-18, 25-15, 15-4 win over Sta. Lucia for a 5-3 mark. Jaja Santiago, substitute spiker Marian Buitre and Dindin Santiago-Manabat powered the Tornadoes to kick off their second-round campaign.  Santiago delivered 22 points built on 14 kills, six blocks and two service aces while Buitre, who was fielded in the third set, showed her worth with 15 points off eight attacks, five aces and two blocks. Manabat, for her part, added 13 markers. Foton tightened its hold of the solo fourth place with its fourth straight victory. Pam Lastimosa put up 13 points and 15 digs for Sta. Lucia. Rachel Austero had 11, while Amanda Villanueva added 10 markers including 12 excellent receptions as their team dropped to 1-7 card. Sta. Lucia head coach Babes Castillo didn’t field MJ Phillips while libero Alex Bollier is out for at least a week for a week due to patellar tendinitis on her left knee......»»

Balanza s career-high 31 points carries Letran into NCAA 95 win column

Jerrick Balanza’s game-long brilliance shone the way for Colegio de San Juan de Letran past Arellano University, 81-72, Friday at Filoil Flying V Centre and into the winners’ circle in the NCAA 95 Men’s Basketball Tournament. Balanza scored an NCAA career-best 31 points, 13 coming in the final frame, to go along with three rebounds and two assists to seize win no. 1 for the Knights following a season-opening loss. "Actually, everyone stepped up sa second half. We're just happy to win this game," head coach Bonnie Tan said after his first win in the Grand Old League since Season 90. The Chiefs were actually keeping close and even had a two-point lead, 62-60, early in the fourth quarter until the Intramuros-based team went big and owned the paint. With the ball in the hands of its team captain, Letran went on a 19-5 tear to, all of a sudden, boost his side ahead, 79-67, inside the last three minutes. All but six of those points were by Balanza who simply schooled all of Rence Alcoriza, Alfren Gayosa, and Jade Talampas. "Jerrick is an experienced player and he just knows how to make plays down the stretch," coach Bonnie, on his first year for the blue and red, said. In the end, he was backed up by Jeo Ambohot who posted a 15-point, 11-rebound double-double. Ato Ular and King Caralipio also added eight points apiece to go along with much-welcome energy and intensity. Alcoriza was the lone bright spot for Arellano with 19 points while Justin Arana also added 12 markers, five blocks, three rebounds, and three assists. With no answer for Balanza, however, they remain winless in two games. BOX SCORES LETRAN 81 - Balanza 31, Ambohot 15, Ular 8, Caralipio 8, Mina 6, Muyang 5, Olivario 2, Javillonar 2, Sangalang 2, Reyson 2, Yu 0, Batiller 0, Balagasay 0 ARELLANO 72 - Alcoriza 19, Arana 12, Gayosa 11, Salado 9, Sablan 8, Talampas 6, Concepcion 4, Bayla 3, Espiritu 0, De Guzman 0, Santos 0 QUARTER SCORES: 23-16, 36-40, 60-59, 81-72 --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @riegogogo......»»
