Ex-teammates pay tribute to Huelar

first_imgManuel “Maui” Huelar. DON HUELAR FB Retired Philippine BasketballAssociation (PBA) cager Hubert John Ferriols said that Huelar was a big part ofhis basketball career’s success. He described the Bacolodnon as a “kind personand a selfless player.” “Una kong nakilala si Maui (Huelar) nung college days pa sa Cebu. 1993 sa USJ-R. Siya na ‘yung number one point guard namin doon. Ako, kararating ko lang sa Cebu noon from Davao,” Ferriols said in an interview with Spin.ph. After his basketball career, Huelar entered politics and was elected as village captain in Barangay 35, In 2004, the two nearly became teammates in the PBA also through FedEx Express. Ferriols was on his sophomore year with the team that time, but Huelar failed to earn a contract after being drafted. Huelar, Ferriols and Hugnatan, along with Columbian Dyip head coach Johnedel Cardel, Erwin Framo, Allen Sasan, Jack Tanuan, Leo Bat-og and Ryan Gamboa, were part of the Slashers team that finished runner-up in the 1998 MBA season. MANILA – Tributes poured in for former NegrosSlashers guard Manuel “Maui” Huelar, who was gunned down by a still unknownassailant at Barangay Villamonte, Bacolod City, Negros Occidental on April 16.center_img “Alam ko na ‘yung laro niya eh. Alam na rin niya kung saan ako pumupuwesto. Kahit nakapikit lang ‘yun or nakapikit ako, alam ko kung saan siya nakapuwesto,” Ferriols continued. Ferriols and Huelar were college teammates in 1993 at the University of San Jose-Recoletos (USJ-R) in Cebu and ended up as teammates once again in 1998 while playing for the Slashers in the defunct Metropolitan Basketball Association (MBA). Meanwhile, Bacolodnon center Reynel Hugnatan of the Meralco Bolts – another former Slashers teammate of Huelar – posted a picture a photo on Facebook and captioned it: “Rest in peace my brother, Maui Huelar. ‘The Flying Fish.’ #MH15. Sad day sa mga Slashers family”. “Siya ‘yung unang nag-entertain sa akin sa quarters. Mabait ‘yun at matulungin. Kapag may mali sa play, bubulungan ka kung anong dapat gawin,” he added. “Hindi siya madamot. Point guard talaga.” Bacolod City. He was also in and out of the detention cell in the past few years due to several cases, including ones related to illegal drugs./PNlast_img read more

Hekari United face off with rivals Lae City

first_imgSoccer BY SIMON KESLEP The PNG Football Association sanctioned National Soccer League heads into overdrive on Saturday with Round 12 kicking off some exciting matches in Port Moresby and Lae respectively. Dubbed as ‘Match of the Round,’ this is the second meeting this season between Hekari United and Lae City. In their round nine early this season, both sides fought out a one-all deadlock. It will also be a rematch of last season’s Grand Final. Other matches held at the PNG Football Stadium in Port Moresby will see Star Mountain face off against FC Bougainville while Vitiaz meet the visiting Morobe Wawens. In Lae, FC Kutubu clash with Gulf Komara and Morobe United take on Tusbab Stallions. Both teams did not concede any goals following last Saturday’s after claiming victories against their respective opponents – Lae City belted Gulf Komara 5-0 and Hekari United beat FC Bougainville 2-0). Goal scoring wise, Lae City is boosted after the third window transfer period with the recruitment of former Tusbab Stallions Stahl Gubag. Leading the top scorer’s tally (9 goals), Gubag missed an opportunity to clock double digits to his tally following a missed penalty against Gulf Komara. The last couple of weeks saw both teams making headlines with controversies over Raymond Gunemba and Nigel Dabinyaba and their inclusion with Hekari United FC. Lae City FC Coach Bob Morris is pretty much happy with the bulk of experience and talent in the squad. “It’s a non-issue, it is a dead issue. Let them fight their issue because I am happy with the team. With them or without them, I don’t have any problem in the team. I am prepared for Hekari, I think we will give them a good run for their money and we look forward (to the game),” said Morris. The match will also be another good experience for Hekari United FC Coach Erickson Komeng, especially standing on the sideline and barking orders compared to his more experience coach Bob Morris on the opposing side. “It is a very hard (huge) shoe to fill with our head coach (Jerry Allen) who departed due to Covid-19 pandemic…I still get advice from him and talk to him. (There is) nothing much to work on but a lot of improvement to go. They (Lae City FC) are a very good side and for us, the inclusion of Raymond and Nigel is a boost for us. Yes, I am looking forward to it,” said Komeng following their 2-0 win over FC Bougainville. Lae City have the likes of captain Emmanuel Simon, Jacob Sabua, Obert Bika including the two Ecuadorians Abdias Aguirre Aguirre and Icaza Gustine with support from Emmanuel Airem to lead their attack while in the backline will see the Komolong brothers Alwin and Felix, Philip Steven and Thomas Yagun keeping their opponents at bay. For Hekari United, Michael Foster and David Muta are the key to dictate plays from the engine room for Kepo brothers Kolu and Freddy, and Nathan James to take advantage. Always on defensive alert are Daniel Joe, Wilson Gia and Junior David. Young Carlos Onne was also impressive and there is likely to be a few changes to see the inclusion of Koriak Upaiga on Saturday.last_img read more

Hearts’ chairman wants clubs to earn sponsorship money

first_imgBoard Chairman of Accra Hearts of Oak Mr. Commodore Mensah believes sponsorship money allocated to the premier clubs should be shared according to their positions on the league log.According to him, it will be in the right direction to implement this to motivate all the clubs to compete keenly to finish up well to earn greater part of the sponsorship money.He told Asempa Sports on Thursday that, this practice will help elevate the status of the local league to a standard where it can be compared to some European leagues.Clubs that played in the 2009/2010 Premier League season received 18,000 dollars.The ones involved in the 2010/2011 season bagged $32,000 while clubs that will play in the 2011/2012 campaign will receive $40,000; his includes promoted and relegated clubs.Title sponsors of the league, Globacom, have had some challenges in honouring their part of the agreement signed three years ago due to ‘operational difficulties’ but have assured they are very committed to seeing the deal through. He added that, the sharing of sponsorship money in the league does not contribute any aggressiveness in the clubs to put up their best since all get the same amount of money.last_img read more

‘Survivor’ contestant in hot water for inappropriately touching booted after undisclosed off-screen “incident”

first_imgPhoto: Robert Voets/CBS Entertainment ©2019 CBS Broadcasting, Inc. All Rights Reserved.(LOS ANGELES) — Viewers who tuned into Survivor: Island of the Idols on Wednesday night spotted an on-screen message informing them that controversial contestant Dan Spilo had been ejected.Spilo, a TV producer and talent manager, had previously been accused of inappropriately touching two female contestants on the show. He had apologized on air for making them feel uncomfortable, but remained on the island.However, his time on the reality show abruptly came to an end, as evidenced by Wednesday’s message, which read, “Dan was removed from the game after a report of another incident, which happened off-camera and did not involve a player.”At the end of the Wednesday night’s installment, host Jeff Probst told the remaining contestants the morning after tribal council that Spilo had been removed from the show.As for what specifically happened off-camera that resulted in Spilo’s ejection, Probst told Entertainment Weekly, “…out of respect for privacy and confidentiality, I can’t say anymore,” giving the same answer when asked why producers elected not to inform the remaining contestants about the exact reason Spilo was ejected.Probst also said that “conversations both internally and with outside organizations will continue” regarding how to handle any future incidents of inappropriate behavior.Copyright © 2019, ABC Audio.
