The southeastern Boys of Maryland County will battle Montserrado County in the 2016/2017 National County Sports Meet Finals on Sunday at the Antoinette Tubman Stadium.This follows their 2-0 victory over 2011 champions Nimba County yesterday.The Marylanders, having qualified for the semi-finals on a goal difference after losing to Grand Cape Mount County in their last quarter-finals match, yesterday put up a splendid performance against the “Mountainous Boys” ofNimba County, who were considered one of the tournament’s favorites. Nimba were confident to reach the finals and earlier planned to travel to their county to mobilize more fans for the final which would have been on Sunday, according to one of their technical staff members, Musa Kamara.But two goals from Davis Toe and Alfeh Allison in each half of the match spoiled the Mountainous Boys’ plans.The Mountainous Boys, who booked their slot in the finals after defeating the “Wologizi Boys” of Lofa by three goals to nil, made the first attempt of the match in the 13th minute after striker Marker Yallah headed the ball over the cross-bar.Nimba, noted for their collective passes to maintain possession, found it difficult to do so due to persistent pressure from their opponents.The two teams continued to struggle for goals until stoppage time, when Toe netted a through pass from Patrick Williams in the bottom right corner of the goalpost.The first half’s result left supporters of the Maryland in a jubilant mood, while supporters of Nimba were in the opposite mood, but still had hope in their team for the last forty-five minutes.Nimba returned to the second session with attacks in search for a goal and to reawaken their many supporters at the crowed stadium.Yallah attempted to get the curtain raiser for Nimba in the 56th minute through a right foot shot outside of the 18-yard box, but his shot was pushed over the bar by Maryland’s goalkeeper Larry Hne, who saved another shot four minutes later when Ivin Gbotoe took a shot from about 16 yards.Maryland later made some attempts after Alfeh Allison was introduced in the 68th minute.The introduction of Allison put the defensive line of Nimba under pressure with the striker continuously attacking his opponents.Nimba also made a change after 2015 highest goal scorer David Tuazama was substituted for Musa Jabateh in the 71st minute.Supporters of Maryland stood up around the stadium awaiting the final whistle to end the match on the 1-0 score, but they became more jubilant when Allison doubled the lead for Maryland in the 83rd minute to finally secure their spot for the final. He was named Man of the Match for his performance.Many supporters of other counties expressed satisfaction with the result and said that they are happy to see a county like Maryland reaching the finals.Maryland last reached the finals in the 50s. On the other hand Montserrado County have appeared in the finals three times, 1969, 2013 and the last edition.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window) read more

There was no confirmation of gunfire. “They said they heard gunfire in the Rayburn garage, but this is a huge building, I’m guessing it’s a car backfiring or balloons popping,” said Gene Smith, chief of staff to Rep. Howard Berman, D-Calif., who has an office in Rayburn. The Rayburn House Office Building was completed in early 1965 and is the third of three office buildings constructed for the United States House of Representatives. It sits southwest of the Capitol. The building has four stories above ground, two basements, and three levels of underground garage space. The U.S. Capitol Police Department’s Containment & Emergency Response Team maintains an indoor shooting range in the basement of the Rayburn building, according to the department’s Web site. WASHINGTON (AP) – Police investigated reports of gunfire in a House office building on Friday and briefly sealed off the Capitol as a precaution. Capitol police were investigating “the sound of gunfire in the garage level of the Rayburn House Office Building,” said an announcement on the internal Capitol voice alarm system. The Senate was in session at the time, but the House was not. Four ambulances were summoned. The FBI said there have been no injuries reported thus far. Rep. Peter Hoekstra, R-Mich., conducting a House Intelligence Committee hearing, interrupted a witness to request those attending the meeting to remain in the room and said the doors must be closed. Within minutes of the reports, Rayburn halls were virtually empty and police were not allowing anyone to leave or take elevators or stairs to the garage. The event occurred at the end of a week of unusually tumultuous series of events that ironically enough, began in the same building. FBI agents armed with a search warrant seized documents and computer material from the first office of Rep. William Jefferson in an weekend raid. Jefferson is at the center of a federal bribery investigation. At the Capitol, police quickly closed all doors, stopping people from either entering the building. Tourists who were in the building were herded into a first-floor chamber in the middle of the building. Other corridors on the House side of the building, where lawmakers had already left for the Memorial Day recess, were deserted. The Capitol was re-opened within an hour. Jeff Connor, a spokesman for Rep. Jo Ann Emerson, R-Mo., said Capitol Hill police notified the office that gunfire was heard in the Rayburn building garage. “They specifically said there was the sound of gunfire on one of the garage levels of the Rayburn House office building and asked staff to remain in their offices,” Connor said. Many members of the House were back home in their districts for the Memorial Day recess. House Speaker Dennis Hastert was home in Illinois when the incident began, an aide in his office said. Incidents of violence inside the Capitol and its office buildings are rare. On July 24, 1998, a man with a history of mental illness shot and killed Capitol Police officer Jacob J. Chestnut at a first-floor Capitol entrance. He then charged into an adjacent suite of offices occupied by Tom DeLay, then the House Republican whip, and exchanged fire with officer John Gibson, who also was killed. The gunman was wounded and captured. In 1983, a late-night bomb, possibly set by someone protesting U.S. military action in Grenada and Lebanon, exploded just outside the Senate chamber. No one was injured. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! read more
