first_img Next Game: The Ramblers pushed for the equalizer before halftime, but the Bulldogs’ defense held their ground as goalkeeper, Jared Brown (Aurora, Ontario) collected two saves and two shots were blocked and one went wide. ESPN+ Western Illinois 9/26/2018 – 7 PM Drake (4-3-1) scored first with sophomore Leroy Enzugusi’s (Marion, Iowa) goal in the 23rd minute (23:22) of the opening half. Enzugusi used one touch to get past a Loyola (3-3-1) defender and slotted his shot past the goalkeeper, Josh Lagudah, far post from the edge of the 18-yard box. “Tonight, was a good really good competitive match up on the road.” said head coach Gareth Smith. “We started the game very well and the first half was one of our best and most complete performances this season. We maintained good purposeful possession, created a number of chances and scored an excellent goal. Offensively we caused Loyola a lot of problems and could have extended our lead. The second half we just didn’t get going and took too long to get into the game. The momentum shifted in Loyola’s favor and they challenged us to defend for periods of time. We needed to take better care of possession and look to be more composed in key moments to play out of pressure. That being said our guys defended exceptionally well for the most part and we should have seen the game out before overtime. We got back into the game for short periods and created a few half chances later in the game, but lack a little quality in key moments. Overall a solid point in the road and one we will build on going into the game against Western Illinois.” Full Schedule Roster Watch Live Brown finished with eight saves while Enna led the team with four shots.

On his birthday, Mulayam reveals interest in Delhi

first_imgNot just Uttar Pradesh, focus on capturing power in Delhi as well: this was the advice Samajwadi Party (SP) founder Mulayam Singh gave to party workers and leaders as he entered the 81st year of his life on Thursday. While his public appearances have decreased over the past one year, party workers still look up to the Yadav patriarch as a guiding light and a potential prime ministerial candidate, especially as the crucial 2019 Lok Sabha election approaches.Mr. Singh has in the past made his PM aspirations known to all.“Yours eyes must be set on Delhi. Delhi is everything, keep that in mind… You must resolve to create such a situation that no government can be formed in Delhi without the SP,” Mr. Singh told a gathering at the party office on the occasion of his birthday.The SP founder even asked party workers to organise public meetings for him at the local level so that he could join in the campaign.Mr. Singh reflected on his career and how the SP formed the government in Uttar Pradesh four times and become part of the Centre twice, despite being underestimated as a “party of one district”.However, he said that “some leaders” broke away from the party after creating strife and causing damage, and now it was up to the youth to unite and strengthen the party ahead of 2019. Mr. Singh did not name any leader, though it could be speculated if he was referring to his younger brother Shivpal Singh Yadav who, after a long family feud, especially with his nephew Akhilesh Yadav, formed a separate outfit recently. Akhilesh and Shivpal, however, have been locked in battle to claim Mulayam’s political legacy. The patriarch has so far enacted a balancing game.While SP leaders cut a cake and celebrated his birthday at the party headquarters, his son Akhilesh, along with his daughter and son, called upon him to wish him, before he headed out to campaign in Madhya Pradesh. “He taught us all to walk on Gandhiji’s path of truth and non-violence and to follow Lohiaji’s principle that in order to defeat the evil, we must first recognise it, and that trust is the biggest asset of human relationships,” Mr. Akhilesh tweeted.On the other hand, Shivpal Yadav’s party organized a session on “Socialism and Secularism” in Lucknow, while he himself attended a ‘dangal’ (wrestling contest) organized in Safai as tribute to his elder brother. Mr. Singh is a former wrestler. Saifai is the native village of the Yadavs in Etawah district.last_img read more
