At around seven minutes played, the Mocs offense struck again, this time beating Garcia at the upper 90.The Argonauts seemed to be lost, and were not able to mark up the fast offenders from the Mocs when around twelve minutes they used the open spaces in the Argonauts defense and struck again with no chances to Garcia, giving the Mocs the 2-0 lead.During an injury time out from the Mocs, the pouring rain came and the Argonauts met in the middle of the field and pumped each others up.

Tottenham head coach Tim Sherwood is targeting a final-day win over Aston Villa to ensure the club will be playing Europa League football next season. Press Association Sherwood’s side currently sit sixth in the Barclays Premier League table and go into their last game of the campaign knowing that a point against Villa is enough to keep Manchester United behind them and secure European qualification. With constant speculation over his future, it remains unclear if Sherwood would be the man to lead Tottenham into next season. But the 45-year-old knows that qualifying for the Europa League is something that is of vast importance to a club like Spurs. “It is a huge game,” he said. “We want to finish with maximum points if possible, we know they are going to be tough, they carry a threat on the counter attack and are better away from home than they have been at home. “I will be guaranteeing to our fans that I will be selecting a team that want to play for Tottenham in this last game and want to be playing in the Europa League next season. “I think that is hugely important for a club like Tottenham. Everyone aspires to be in the Champions League but we know how difficult it is to actually achieve that. “We’ve got a big squad of players and when they’re all fit…they need a games programme and I think the Europa League gives them opportunities to play games, keep themselves mentally prepared and physically ready.” Kyle Walker will not feature for Spurs. The England defender will still be hoping to go to the World Cup but a pelvic injury means he is again unavailable to Sherwood this weekend. Winger Andros Townsend (ankle) remains sidelined along with club-record signing Erik Lamela (back) while Jan Vertonghen (ankle) and Etienne Capoue (foot) will hope to be involved after returning to training. Meanwhile, Paul Lambert has no idea if he will still be Aston Villa manager next season. Speculation surrounds both his future and that of the club in general, with American owner Randy Lerner rumoured to be considering selling up. Lambert describes Villa’s survival in the Barclays Premier League this season as his greatest managerial achievement following another difficult campaign in his second year at the helm. Last weekend’s victory over Hull secured their top flight place and allowed thoughts to start turning towards next season and beyond. However, Lambert’s most common answer at Friday’s press conference ahead of the trip to Tottenham was “I don’t know” as members of the media grilled him on the future. Asked whether he thinks he will still be at Villa Park next season, Lambert said: “I don’t know. I’ll say it once and once only: I don’t know what the statement from the chairman is going to say. “I don’t know when it’s coming out. I know as much as you do at the minute. But I’ll respect whatever Randy’s got to say. I don’t have one problem. “My job is to keep this club up and protect everybody else and that’s what I’ve done. “I don’t know when it’s going to come out or what’s going to be said. I’ll just see what happens.” He added: “It’s not something Randy and I talk about every minute of every day. We don’t do anything like that. “I know there’s going to be a statement but that’s it. I’m a football manager, not a business person. But it’s his club and he’ll do what he thinks is right for this club.” Lambert believes his reputation has been enhanced during his two years at Villa regardless of what Lerner decides over the future of both the manager and the club in general. “Number one, I fully intend to be here next season. “Number two, my directive was to keep the team in the Premier League. “Number three, it’s been the hardest season ever but it’s never plain sailing in football management and that’s why I say it’s the greatest thing I’ve achieved. “I won promotions at Norwich from League One to the Premier League but I still class this as the best thing I’ve done.” Villa hope striker Gabriel Agbonlahor will be fit for the game. The striker missed the midweek 4-0 defeat at Manchester City with a knee injury but Lambert hopes he will have recovered in time for the trip to north London. Winger Marc Albrighton (groin) is a doubt while the likes of Jores Okore, Christian Benteke and Libor Kozak are still absent with long-term injuries.
Some residents in Delray Beach are reporting that they experienced flooding in their homes after the city removed the sandbags they purchased and placed around their homes to help protect them from the rising waters during king tide.On resident in particular, CJ Johnson, told our news partners at CBS12 that he purchased $6,000 worth of sandbags to protect his and his neighbors’ homes. Johnson says he placed the bags in the roadway by the Intracoastal which is across the street from their homes.City officials later came out and removed the bags from the roadway“My sandbags would’ve stopped all of this and they took them away,” Johnson said.While Johnson and other residents believe the city is responsible the for damage because they removed the bags, City of Delray Beach spokeswoman Gina Carter says the sandbags caused damage to the road and would have not protected their homes from flooding.“The sandbags that were placed on the roadway by one of the residents caused a good deal of damage to the road which now needs to be repaired. It is not sound, from an engineering perspective, to put so much weight the edge of a older road. In short, the sandbags could not stay and were not providing any substantive protection to those residents from their most common flooding issue, namely ground water,” said Carter.“Placing sandbags on a small section of roadway can not provide protection from flooding, especially if it is actually caused by ground water. In other to truly address their ground water flooding issue the homeowners would need to raise their homes,” said Carter.Eugenia DePonte, who has lived in the area for almost 30 years says he has noticed the flooding is getting worse, she continued.“It seems to be getting worse, particularly during a hurricane,”DePonte said.The city says they have plans to build a seawall to help prevent flooding, however, residents say they need a fix while that is in process.
