(REUTERS)-Josip Drmic scored less than two minutes after coming on as a substitute to give Switzerland a 1-0 win over Latvia which kept up their 100 percent record in their World Cup qualifying group on Saturday.The Borussia Moenchengladbach forward, who had not scored a goal for either club or country this season, came off the bench in the 65th minute to replace Gelson Fernandes and 90 seconds later rose at the far post to majestically head in Admir Mehmedi’s cross.The win left Switzerland top of European Group B with 15 points from five games with second-placed Portugal on nine points ahead of their match at home to Hungary later on Saturday (1945 GMT).Switzerland dominated the game and Latvia, who have only three points, were indebted to 36-year-old goalkeeper Andris Vanins for keeping the score down.

Though it has certainly enjoyed success in seasons past, the Christian Brothers Academy cross country has reached a new plateau with both its boys and girls programs earning prestigious titles on a regular basis.And that included the Brothers going to Long Branch Park and pulling off a clean sweep of Wednesday’s Onondaga High School League Liberty division championship races.For the CBA boys, no. 4 in the latest state Class C rankings, claiming the league meet meant defeating two rivals just behind them in the state poll, no. 5-ranked Skaneateles and no. 7-ranked Westhill.With 45 points, the Brothers claimed that overall title ahead of the Warriors (63 points) and Lakers (76 points) by placing all five of its top runners within the top 20, three of them in the top 10.Sophomore Michael McMahon’s time of 17 minutes, 3.8 seconds was second only to Skaneateles’ Caleb Bender (16:31.6), while senior Rliey Nash made it to fifth place in 17:23 flat.Another CBA senior, Riley Nash, got to eighth place in 17:35.7, while senior Joel Gaffney was 12th in 17:52.4. When sophomore Cooper Groat crossed the finish line 18th in 18:15.4, the Brothers locked up the team crown as Kyle Gaffney, in 19:35.4, was 39th, two spots ahead of Christian Balistreri, who posted 19:40.8.Moving to the girls OHSL Liberty race, CBA, who sits at no. 12 in the state Class B rankings, found itself in a narrow battle with Chittenango for top honors in both the overall and American division races.Led again by Olivia Morganti, the Brothers won those battles, with 42 points in the American division to the Bears’ 46 and, overall, 72 points to fend off Chittenango by two points.Morganti turned the individual race into a showcase, her blistering time of 19:04.5 on the Long Branch course more than a minute and a half ahead of the second-place 20:35 flat from Homer’s Emma Anderson.Just as important, though, were the top-five finishes of senior Lea Kyle and sophomore Isabella Cannizzo as Kyle made her way to third place in 20:53 flat and Cannizzo gained fifth place in 21:05.2.Though the other CBA runners could not quite keep up with that trio, freshman Mia Kirch did get 30th place in 23:27.3 and junior Annie Toole was 33rd in 23:43.6 to help the Brothers hold off Chittenango, the pair finishing 16th and 18th, respectively, among American division runners. Eighth-grader Abby Nash was 41st overall in 24:08.6, two spots ahead of Rachel Farrela’s 24:14.8.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: CBAcross country

“The policy of economic responsibility and good governance that this board of directors has always set forced to find the best solutions to an unexpected crisis. After this agreement with the soccer players, the scenarios that are presented to us in the future may be assumed by the entity without jeopardizing its economic viability. “ Betis officialized this Wednesday the agreement it has reached with its first professional squad to minimize the economic impact of the coronavirus. Finally, footballers will reduce their salary by 15% in the event that LaLiga is permanently suspended and in less relevant percentages in the event that the championship can be ended, with the difference of whether it is done behind closed doors or open doors, a scenario in which they could lose only two percent. This salary reduction also includes the coaching staff of the first team and senior management executives.“The pandemic has caused colossal damage to the global and national economy. In our professional sports sector, the economic impact will have unforeseeable consequences, with all competitions suspended with no restart date in sight and with the possibility that the main sources of income of the Club will be cut significantly, “says Betis in its statement. “In this way, the solidarity of the footballers, coaches and executives of the Club prevents the entity from having to request an ERTE that would significantly affect the 430 Real Betis workers and their families. In times of great uncertainty, Real Betis is committed to maintaining employment. The board of directors of the entity wants to thank effusively the facilities given by the players, with their captains at the forefront, who at all times have put forward the general interests of the Club and the whole of the Betis fans, “he adds.“This operation would not make sense if it did not reverse the whole of society, which is suffering so much in these weeks. Thus, after this agreement, the Club and the players will make a significant donation to fight the coronavirus, mainly destined to the purchase of protection material for the health workers who fight daily against the disease in our hospitals and the most vulnerable social groups in this crisis “-“Likewise, Real Betis Balompié wishes to convey its deepest condolences to the relatives of the deceased Betis in these days, examples of fidelity and dedication to greenish-white colors. And he also wants to send a message of encouragement and hope to all of Spain and all our fans, with special love for the sick, their families and all the healthcare professionals who take care of us, “he concludes.
