Powered by Firework South United FC’s clinical performance completely outshone their opponents in a 2-0 victory.Advertisement South United outclassed MEG in the 2019/20 BDFA Super Division league with a well-settled 2-0 win here on Tuesday.Advertisement The fairly small audience at the Bangalore Football Stadium today were in for a spectacle as both Abhilash (37th Minute) and Magesh (92nd Minute) scored for SUFC while MEG were unable to convert any of their Goal-scoring Opportunities.The game was initially well-controlled by MEG, with a fair amount of chances created by the MEG Winger Imnaakum, but as the game progressed, it was clear that SUFC was gaining the upper hand.Advertisement The deadlock was broken in the 37th Minute by the SUFC forward Abhilash through a pin-point pass by Rungsing. After the goal was scored, MEG started playing more cautiously and attempted to counter SUFC’s attack with a lot more stability. Their best chance came in the 43rd Minute when a free kick very close to the penalty box of SUFC nearly converted into a goal.During the 2nd half, it became clear that though MEG played more aggressively, they were unable to retain possession and were easily beaten in SUFC’s counter-attacks, thanks to the energy and pace of the Winger-captain Aaron, midfielder Rungsing and the Full-backs Krishanu and Satish.The biggest clash in the game saw a fight emerge between SUFC and MEG during the second-half, resulting in red cards for both SUFC’s Midfielder Alex and MEG’s VinodMagesh then made it even harder for MEG to equalise the game by scoring a well-fought goal through a incisive pass into the penalty box by the substitute David, thus settling the game in the 92nd minute.Result: South United FC 2-0 MEG (Abhilash 37’; Magesh 90+2’) Advertisementlast_img read more

Swastika-Painted Stone Found in Highlands Public Park

first_imgBy John Burton |HIGHLANDS – Swastikas and white supremacist rhetoric are not limited to recent events in Charlottesville, Virginia, with one appearing in the borough over the weekend.An approximately 6-inch rock painted with a Nazi swastika symbol and the words “white power,” were discovered on Sunday afternoon at the borough’s Robert D. Wilson Community Center, 22 Snug Harbor Ave., according to Acting Police Chief Robert Burton.The rock was first discovered by a citizen who reported it to the police, Burton said. A photo of it began being circulated on social media, shortly after- wards, according to police.Police are conducting an investigation and haveinformed the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office about it. However, Burton continued, “As offensive as it is to some people, it doesn’t rise to the level of a crime,” under the state Office of Attorney General’s guidelines on bias incidents and crimes.The prosecutor’s office hasn’t had other recent reports of similar incidents and in general hasn’t seen an increase in such activity, according to Charles Webster, a spokesman for the prosecutor’s office.The Nazi-symbol rock was found a day after violence erupted in Charlottesville when various so-called “alt-right” groups violently clashed with counter-protesters, dominating the weekend’s news coverage.This article was first published in the Aug. 17-24, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more

Heart-Stopping Moment in Monmouth Beach

first_imgMONMOUTH BEACH – For 13 years Jeremy Julio has taught students at Long Branch High School how to do Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) techniques.On Sunday morning, Julio, who teaches physical education at the school and is the assistant manager at the Monmouth Beach Bathing Pavilion, got to use these techniques to save a life.Julio said shortly before 9 a.m. on Sunday, July 9, a woman “came running up to the front desk,” to say a man was in trouble on the beach. He had had been swimming and became weak, Julio said, and made it partly out of the ocean on his knees. This article was first published in the July 13-20, 2017 print edition of The Two River Times. Some women on the beach assisted him, he said.Julio said he went to the beach with an automated external defibrillator (AED), which the club keeps at the desk, and applied it once the man was fully out of the water. Julio explained how, once a pad from the unit is placed on a person’s chest, it immediately registers if a pulse is present. If not, it directs that a shock be applied. Instructions are verbal, Julio said.At that point the AED showed the man had no pulse, Julio said, so he administered shock and when the pulse reappeared, began alternating chest compressions and breathing aid.“He wasn’t breathing. He didn’t have a heartbeat,” before the shock was administered, Julio said. He noted the man’s wife “was right behind me,” as Julio worked on him.Julio was aided by a group of nurses who were on the beach, the Monmouth Beach Police Department and First Aid Squad, and the lifeguards. “It’s all a team effort,” he said.The lifeguards at the club are on the beach from 10 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., he said, and most incidents occur when lifeguards are not present. “It’s important to swim with lifeguards,” Julio said.He said he had been told the man, who was 65 and from Newark, had surgery and “he’s going to be all right.” Monmouth Beach Police Chief Thomas Walsh said Tuesday he could not release the name of the man who was treated at this time.Julio, 35, lives in Oceanport, with his wife and two children.In addition to his work as a teacher, and at the beach club, he runs a business with his brother and a partner called Last Bite Mosquito Control, based in Oceanport, that treats properties for mosquito and tick control.center_img By Liz Sheehan | last_img read more

Half Dozen Boaters Rescued in Another Boating Accident

first_imgBy Jay Cook |SANDY HOOK – A relaxing Labor Day weekend boat trip turned dangerous for six boaters when their vessel capsized Monday.The boaters were aboard a 22-foot pleasure craft in the afternoon when their boat began taking on water and eventually began to capsize.The distressed boaters used VHF-FM Channel 16 to alert the surrounding vessels they were going to need assistance. A patrol boat from U.S. Coast Guard Station Sandy Hook heard the call and responded.At about 1:40 p.m., only five minutes after the distress call, both the Coast Guard crew and a good Samaritan listening over the airwaves responded to the craft.Three people came aboard the good Samaritan’s boat, and the remaining three joined the Coast Guard vessel. The boaters were then taken back to the Atlantic Highlands Marina with no injuries reported from the incident.Prior to the holiday weekend, U.S. Coast Guard officials stressed safe boating measures for what is typically one of the busiest weekends on the water.Those boating safety tips were: never boat under the influence; file a float plan with friends or family members ashore; wear proper lifejackets; monitor weather broadcasts for “current storm” and “small craft” advisories; ensure one of many signaling devices like flares, whistles, horns, or emergency position-indicating radio beacon are on board; and carry a marine VHF-FM radio, as Channel 16 is the marine emergency channel.In an interview with The Two River Times last week, United States Coast Guard Chief Petty Officer Jeremy Mitchell, stationed at Sandy Hook, said the emergency lines are buzzing nearly every weekend.“Now the insurance checks are rolling in” from boats damaged during Super Storm Sandy, Mitchell said and, “people are putting a little bit of money back into their boats. But meanwhile, they haven’t been on the water in a while. They forget a couple things, and next thing they know, they’re sinking.”Monday’s incident is just one of many to occur on Two River waterways this boating season.On Aug. 19, three boaters capsized in a nine-foot John boat while on the Shrewsbury River, but were safely rescued by a Station Sandy Hook boat crew.A boat caught fire on the Shrewsbury River on Aug. 13 as 10 people were packed onto a 19-foot Sea Doo Speedster 200 small speedboat. New Jersey State Police, Monmouth County Sheriff’s Department and local fire departments all responded to the blaze. All 10 boaters made it off the craft safely as a nearby boater helped in the rescue.On Aug. 4, 44-year-old Sinisa Bjelajac went missing while kitesurfing in Horseshoe Cove, a small inlet along the bayside of Sandy Hook. The Coast Guard suspended the search on Aug. 5, and Bjelajac’s body was found on Aug. 8, floating a few hundred yards off the beach at Seven Presidents Oceanfront Park in Long Branch.The body of a middle-aged African American woman was recovered at Anchorage Beach in Sea Bright on July 30. According to an investigation by the Monmouth County Prosecutor’s Office, she was believed to have potential ties to New York City. A sketch of the woman generated by the New Jersey State Police was published, but has not yielded any information.The United States Coast Guard continually urges boater safety and asks boaters to utilize the Coast Guard Auxiliary for complete vessel checks before launching into waters.This article was first published in the Sept. 7-14, 2017 print edition of the Two River Times.last_img read more
