Lokosa Applauds Eunisel for Career Boost

first_imgNigerian International, Junior Lokosa, has applauded Eunisell for the company’s commitment to the Nigerian Professional Football League and for being behind his dramatic change in fortune.Eunisell launched the prestigious Eunisell Boot in 2018 – awarded to the NPFL’s highest goal scorer in a season.Lokosa, the inaugural winner for his impressive 19 goals scored in 2017/2018, was presented with the trophy and a cheque for N3.8 million – N200,000 a goal. The media hype around Lokosa’s award caught the attention of African Champions, Tunisia’s Esperance Sportive, who recently signed the Kano Pillars star.Incidentally, Lokosa had previously travelled to China and Norway seeking a club, but walked away without securing a deal.“It was only after the Eunisell Boot award had been made along with all the publicity, that my career turned a corner. There can be no doubt that the award will spur young, aspiring players and Nigerian league footballers to perform at a much higher level – the rewards are real”, Lokosa said.Eunisell firmly believes that rewarding the top flight League players will improve the standard of football, increase the fans focus on the league and create sports employment opportunities for future generations.Interestingly, several stars are already in the race for The Eunisell Boot this 2018/2019 NPFL season.Heartland’s Chinonso Okonkwo is ahead of the pack with three goals at the conclusion of Match-day 6 proceedings.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Got an answer for me?

Got an answer for me?

first_imgAfter 20-plus years on this earth, I’ve come to the conclusion that there are a fair amount of things I will just never understand. For instance, the current craze of girls with oversized sunglasses. Ditto for the giant gold purses. Maybe it’s just me, but I don’t get it.Here’s another one — how can George Feeney be so inspiring and full of wisdom? I mean, seriously, where would Cory and Topanga have ended up without him? OK, seriously, enough with ABC Family Channel.Why doesn’t Bucky Badger ever wear pants? I’m pretty sure if I showed up to work with nothing but a striped shirt on, the reception wouldn’t be too good.But, to get on topic, there are some random questions in the sports world lately that are just as vexing.Question No. 1: How is the National League West so bad?This division just drives me insane. Maybe it’s the fact that the Milwaukee Brewers, at 79-79, would be on their way to a playoff berth. Heck, the NL West is so bad the Cubs would be in the title hunt.The Swinging Friars of San Diego have a four game-lead over the San Francisco Giants with a record of just 78-79. First off, the Padres have far too much talent to be mired in their current spell of mediocrity. And secondly, the Giants have no business being in any playoff hunt, regardless of how many home runs Barry Bonds can hit on one knee.If none of the five major league teams in this division (well I guess you could say four, eh Colorado Rockies fans?) can manage to crack the .500 mark, there is no way any of them should participate in the playoffs. I say take two wild card teams, and leave either of these floundering clubs at home in Cali.Question No. 2: How do the Braves keep doing it?Fourteen straight division titles. From Lonnie Smith to Ryan Langerhans, somehow, some way, Atlanta just continues to win. The model of a well-run ball club, the Braves simply replace the players they cannot afford (Gary Sheffield) with a new generation of stars (that would be you, Mr. Francoeur). Or, in Julio Franco’s case, they have found a way to stop the natural cycle of life. Their personnel strategies continue to work like a well-oiled machine, and general manager John Schuerholz deserves plenty of the credit.Most impressive is the fact that the Braves have racked up this streak in a division chock full of talented clubs, a great contrast to the previously discussed NL West.Question No. 3: Was Javon Walker that important to the Packers’ offense?Green Bay averaged 27 points and 397 yards of offense per game a year ago. This season, the Pack has only managed a little over 14 and 309. For a team that entered the year with a pretty suspect defense, that is not a welcome sign. So what’s the big problem?Sure, Javon Walker had himself quite a year in 2004, catching 89 balls for 1,382 yards and 12 touchdowns. But Brett Favre and the Packers’ passing offense have replaced go-to receivers in the past (yes, that would be your cue to hit the bricks Antonio Freeman).Green Bay is also trying to fill the voids left by free agents Marco Rivera and Mike Wahle. And as of now, the new line isn’t gelling too well. Favre has been running for his life and Green Bay has no balance on offense. Ever hear of showing a commitment to the running game?Question No. 4: When is the NHL-hating going to stop?Professional hockey + shootouts = great entertainment. Throw in the league’s newest messiah on the ice (Sidney Crosby) to go along with its greatest player of all time (Wayne Gretzky) making his coaching debut, and you have a pretty intriguing year. Yet, there is absolutely no hype for the return of the National Hockey League.Player movement usually mixes things up as well, so that should work in the league’s favor. Gosh, it seems like every player of any substance has changed teams. Paul Kariya in Nashville … who knew?Nope, mainstream sports fans still don’t seem to care.

Evan Molloy helps Syracuse stave off Hobart in 13-6 win

Evan Molloy helps Syracuse stave off Hobart in 13-6 win

first_imgGENEVA, N.Y. — Evan Molloy bobbed his head up and down while strutting out from the goal crease to the 30-yard line. He turned to his teammates on the sideline to his right and waved his arms up and down, a gesture meant for him as much as it was for his teammates.By Molloy’s estimation he had let in six goals in a row. It was only four, but Hobart had cut Syracuse’s lead down to one goal and had a prime scoring opportunity in front of the net.Molloy slid to his knees and stonewalled Hobart’s Sean Donnelly.“We really needed that save,” Molloy said. “… (The defense) kind of broke down there and they needed me.”In his first career start, Molloy rallied from a mid-game slump to come up big for the Orange. He made three difficult saves in a row to halt the Statesmen’s scoring run and maintain SU’s lead. The redshirt junior got the nod over Warren Hill, who had started the first eight games of the season, and made seven saves while conceding six goals en route to a 13-6 Syracuse (6-3, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) win over Hobart (5-5, 1-1 Northeast) at Boswell Field on Wednesday night.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMolloy’s complete game totaled more minutes than he had previously compiled through two and a half years.“Those were saves that they needed at a very good time and that did provide them a little bit of momentum,” Hobart head coach Greg Raymond said. “… Those saves definitely helped the outcome of this game.”Prior to the game, Syracuse head coach John Desko watched Molloy warming up and thought he looked “fairly relaxed” considering it was his first start. The goalie assumed he’d be nervous, but the nerves never kicked in.Molloy was thrust into the spotlight during the Orange’s loss to Notre Dame on Saturday. He replaced Hill in goal during SU’s third straight loss and had five saves and allowed three goals in 11-plus minutes. Hill let in 14 goals and had four saves in 48-plus minutes.After the game, Desko said Hill wasn’t to blame for the loss, but gave Molloy the start on Wednesday.Molloy made two stops in a goalless first quarter before the Statesmen scored twice in the second quarter and snuck in a third goal with 16 seconds left in the first half.Hobart picked up where they left of when the third started. Three goals in a row without a save by Molloy had the score cut to 7-6. The third of four goals squeezed through Molloy’s legs and barely rolled across the goal line before he could rake it back.He threw his hands up at the referees and punched the air with his right hand in frustration.A team that had blown leads late in two of its last three games looked like it could do it again.“You get kind of deflated there when a team goes on a run like that,” Molloy said.But then he made the sliding stop on the one-on-one. When Syracuse went man-down on Hobart’s next possession, Molloy stepped forward in the crease to send away an open angled shot from midfielder Mark Darden.The stops piled up and so too did the goals for Syracuse on offense. Molloy was able to dig the Orange out of its most vulnerable position in the game and kick start the resurgence on the other end.“He did well other than that in that run that they had,” Desko said. “And shortly afterward he made a couple big saves — and they would have been goals — and really kind of help us fight through it.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 6, 2016 at 10:39 pm Contact Jon: jrmettus@syr.edu | @jmettuslast_img read more
