Edwards, Griffith join Jamaica Scorpions

first_imgBarbadian opener Kirk Edwards and his young Guyanese counterpart, Trevon Griffith, are both in the country and will meet up with their Jamaica Scorpion teammates today, ahead of the team’s sixth and final West Indies Professional Cricket League trial match at Sabina Park. The duo, who are at different ends of the spectrum of the West Indies Professional League in terms of experience, were drafted by Jamaica as their two compulsory overseas-based professionals for the championship. The 30-year-old Edwards, who has represented the West Indies in 17 Tests and has an average of 31.80, including two centuries and eight fifties, was excluded from the list of 15 players contracted by Barbados Pride. He was the Scorpion’s first overseas pick during the draft held before the summer, and was followed by Griffith, who failed to make the roster of title-holders Guyana Jaguars. The 24-year-old Griffith, a former West Indies Under-19 representative, has so far made seven regional first-class appearances, managing one fifty for an average of 13.66. The two will be hoping to impress the national selectors for a starting spot in the Jamaica franchise team, which last season chopped and changed openers to little effect. Jamaica, former recent five-time back-to-back champions, finished fourth in the six-team tournament last season. Meanwhile, Edwards and Griffith could be joined by West Indies wicketkeeper-batsman Chadwick Walton and former national leg-spinner Akeem Dewar for tomorrow’s final trial match. Walton, Jamaica’s most prolific batsman towards the end of last season, and Dewar missed the earlier trial matches due to their studies at the University of The West Indies. They are both hoping to represent Jamaica as pay-per-play players.last_img read more

‘Development can still lead to titles’

first_imgSt Catherine High school coach, Lennox Lindo, says winning the ISSA Southern Conference Under-16 high school basketball title proves that with a proper programme and the right application, schools can still win trophies by developing their own talent.In recent times, recruiting and transfers have become a major part of the local high-school sports landscape, but Lindo, who led St Catherine’s junior team to a 2-1 series win over St George’s College at the National Indoor Sports Centre last Friday, says development can still lead to titles.”I am really proud of these guys because they have been developing for quite a while. Most of them have been together for three, four years, so it’s good to know that development can still win championships,” he said.”They have come up gradually through the stages, so that is what I am really proud of. They came up through Under-14 together; last year they lost in the Under-16 semi-finals; and now, this year the hard work had paid off,” he told The Gleaner.In Friday’s 59-57 game-three win, Daniel Jones scored 21 points for St Catherine, while Swayveon Henry had 14 points and eight rebounds. Akeem Ellis top-scored for St George’s with 12 points and 10 rebounds.BEATING THE FAVOURITES”St George’s were the favourites as they were unbeaten up to the final. We played them in the zone at their school, and they beat us by ten points, so I knew we could compete against them. After (losing) game two, we changed our tactics,” he added.Meanwhile, the Under-19 final will go to a decisive game three after defending champions Calabar levelled the series 1-1 following a 57-52 win over Camperdown.Shamar Shand, with a game-high 18 points, and Maliek McCarthy, with 13 points and 12 rebounds, were Calabar’s leading players. Kemar Hurd top-scored for Camperdown with 13 points.Game three will be played tomorrow.last_img read more

Molynes United oust champs in JN Open League

first_imgA new champion will be crowned this Saturday when the final of the JN Open League netball competition is contested at the Leila Robinson Courts, as defending champions Mico ‘B’ were beaten 20-17 by in-form Molynes United ‘A’ in their quarter-final encounter on Tuesday.The winners booked a spot in today’s semi-finals, where they will face Mico ‘A’ at 7:15 p.m. Other winners UWI Pelicans ‘A’ and Waulgrovians ‘A’ will also play for a spot in the final, beginning at 6:45 p.m.Molynes United ‘A’, rated second in attack and defence, started off on fire and raced to a 7-0 lead as goalshooter Shantal Slater was bang on target, with goalkeeper Kadian Dehaney making it hard for the Mico ‘B’ shooters at the other end.MISSED CHANCEMolynes ‘A’ finished with a 9-1 first-quarter lead, but Mico fought back gallantly to tie the score at 9-9. They got opportunities to take the lead, but two missed attempts by Daniel Masters and Shauna Jones let the chance slip.Their opponents capitalised to lead 14-10 at half-time and the Roy Price-coached team kept their title ambitions on track, as they will face another Mico team, which had an easy 28-17 win over Cablepro.Despite the absence of ace goalshooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid, who jetted off to New Zealand for the ANZ Championships, the Annette Daley-coached Mico ‘A’ remained unbeaten in this season with a fine all-round display. They led 8-4, 17-15 and 23-13, respectively, at the end of the first three quarters.Goalshooter Taniele Roberts, who took Fowler-Reid’s position, scored 27 goals from 38 attempts, while Petal Smith top-scored for Cablepro with nine goals from 15 tries.There was no luck for Cablepro’s sister team, Jamalco.After a big setback, which saw ace goalshooter Marsha Murphy having to leave the game early in the first quarter after twisting her knee, the Winston Nevers-coached Jamalco lost by two goals, as UWI scored a 25-23 win to book their semi-final place.SMOOTH SAILINGAnother former many-time champion, Walgrovians ‘A’, also booked their semi-final spot, but in a one-sided affair, as they turned back Police ‘A’ 32-16.Having racked up a big 10-1 first-quarter lead, it was smooth sailing for the rest of the way as Waulgrovians ‘A’ led 16-6 after the second quarter and 24-10 at the end of the third stanza, before cruising the rest of the way to set up a clash with UWI ‘A’ in today’s semi-final.The matches will be preceded by the Open League ‘B’ Group semis, with Speg ‘A’ vs Molynes United ‘B’ at 5:45 p.m., followed by Tivoli Gardens vs UTech Knights at 6:15 p.m.- R.

Lin lifts Charlotte over Spurs in NBA

first_img TIGHT RACE CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (AP): Jeremy Lin scored 15 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter as Charlotte overcame a 23-point deficit to snap San Antonio’s six-game winning streak, winning 91-88. Lin was 11 of 18 from the field and hit all four three-point attempts, including three in the fourth quarter. Courtney Lee had 17 points, Nicolas Batum added 15, and Cody Zeller grabbed 14 rebounds for the Hornets, who bounced back from a disappointing loss to the Denver Nuggets on Saturday night. The Spurs had two chances to tie it at the end of regulation, but Patty Mills and Danny Green both missed three-point attempts. In Cleveland, LeBron James scored 33 points and had his 41st career triple-double as the Cavaliers clinched their second straight Central Division title with a comfortable 124-91 victory over Denver. James added 11 rebounds and 11 assists before checking out with 6:02 left to a thunderous ovation. He scored 17 in the first quarter, helping the Cavs build a 19-point lead and erase the memory of an embarrassing loss on Saturday in Miami. The Nuggets fought back and briefly led before the Cavs regrouped, scored 68 after half-time to notch their 50th win. Will Barton scored 27 for the Nuggets. Andre Drummond’s tip-in with two seconds remaining lifted Detroit over Milwaukee, 92-91. The Pistons, who are in a tight race for the final play-off spot in the Eastern Conference, came out inexplicably flat and trailed by 17 points in the first half. They were down 13 in the third quarter before chipping away at Milwaukee’s lead in the fourth. Drummond was outplayed badly early on by Greg Monroe, but when Kentavious Caldwell-Pope missed from the perimeter in the final seconds, Drummond was able to tip the ball in. Draymond Green had 24 points, nine rebounds and six assists to help Golden State narrowly avoid their first two-game skid in nearly a year with a 109-104 victory at Minnesota. Klay Thompson scored 17 points and hit all five of his three-pointers, and the Warriors (63-7) overcame a second straight poor shooting night from Stephen Curry. He missed 11 of his 17 shots, including seven of his nine three-pointers, but still had 19 points, 11 assists and seven rebounds.last_img read more

Ramdin, Pollard axed from Windies’ ODI team

first_imgST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC):Wicketkeeper Denesh Ramdin’s 12-year international career was dangling by a thread after he and all-rounder Kieron Pollard were axed from the one-day international (ODI) squad for next month’s Tri-Nations Series in Zimbabwe.Neither Trinidadian was named in the 15-man squad announced yesterday by the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) for the tour which runs from November 12-27 and also features Sri Lanka.Both players have paid the price for poor form during the 3-0 drubbing by Pakistan in the recent three-match ODI series in the United Arab Emirates.Pollard’s form was perhaps the most glaring, as the right-hander managed just 42 runs from three innings at an average of 14 and produced precious little with the ball.More striking, however, was Pollard’s lacklustre approach with the bat, which prompted Pakistani bowling legend Waqar Younis to call for his dropping ahead of the final ODI.Pollard was only recalled to the West Indies ODI squad for last June’s Tri-Nations Series in the Caribbean – involving Australia and South Africa – following a near two-year period of exile.UNBEATEN HALF-CENTURYHe marked his return with a match-winning unbeaten half-century against South Africa in Guyana, en route to averaging 41 in the series as West Indies reached the final.The 31-year-old Ramdin, meanwhile, may feel hard done by especially after scores of 37 and 34 in the last two ODIs against Pakistan.While he managed just 79 runs in the series, only Marlon Samuels (116), Darren Bravo (90) and Kraigg Brathwaite (85) scored more, in what was a poor showing overall by the Windies batsmen.During the Tri-Nations Series in June, Ramdin scored nearly 200 runs, including a scintillating 91 against Australia in Bridgetown and 40 against the same side a few days later in a losing effort in the final.Ramdin’s sacking from the ODI side comes four months after he was also dropped from the Test squad and just over a year after he was removed as Test captain and it leaves his international career at the crossroads.He is not currently a member of the Twenty20 set-up.SQUAD: Jason Holder (captain), Sulieman Benn, Carlos Brathwaite, Kraigg Brathwaite, Darren Bravo, Jonathan Carter, Johnson Charles, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, Alzarri Joseph, Evin Lewis, Sunil Narine, Ashley Nurse, Rovman Powell, Marlon Samuels.last_img read more

Englishman leads the way at Ja Golf Open

first_imgWestern Bureau: Englishman Paul Eales holds the early lead at the 2017 Jamaica Open Golf Championship, taming the field at the picturesque Half Moon Course with a superb 4 under-par 68 to sit atop the leaderboard after day one in Montego Bay. His score was one stroke better than James Hazen of the United States, who fired a 3 under-par 69 to complete the round in second position, while three-time champion Johnny Bloomfield and Kenny Goodykoontz are tied for third after stroking 71. Eales, Hazen, Bloomfield and Goodykoontz were the only golfers to break par on a challenging opening day. Eales had three birdies on the front nine and added three more on the back nine for the one-stroke lead. Four others were tied for fifth, including Barbadian Alex Sandeman at Even-par 72, while Orville Christie ended the day as the best-placed Jamaican with a two over-par 74. Two other Jamaicans, Michael Rowe and Wesley Brown, are tied in fourth place on 4 over-par 76 heading into today’s second day. But on another windy day, it was Eales who found his touch early to move away from the field on the front nine before making three birdies on the last six holes to post best score of the round. “The course is in great shape … and I realised that after I birdied the first three holes and although the wind was making it really difficult. I managed to putt well on the green and finish well,” said Eales. “And, of course, the last six holes were something special, and to have round things off with three birdies was just dream stuff,” the 1991 Audi Open winner said. Eales made his move early with two quick birdies and never relinquished the lead. The course record at Half Moon is 7 under-par 65 by two-time Open winner Ross Cochran. Cochran won back-to-back titles in 2011 and 2012. Not concerned about the record, Eales told The Gleaner that he hopes to carry his fine putting form through the championship, while hoping for another fine day on today’s penultimate day. Meanwhile, in the amateur section, Jamaican Owen Samuda had a difficult time on the greens to finish the day with 3 over par 75, holding a three-stroke lead over compatriot Oshae Haye at six over for 78, the same as Canadian Robert Sterling. The championship continues today with the first tee-off time set for 7:30 a.m. Eales will be among the last to tee-off at 11 a.m.last_img read more

Reid aiming to lift level of football in region

first_imgCONCACAF director of football, Horace Reid, says the mission of the new office, which was officially opened at the New Kingston Shopping Centre on Wednesday, will help to make Caribbean Football Union (CFU) members and their football stronger, more competitive and respected on the world stage, both on and off the field.Reid, a former Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) general secretary, says they also want to make the most of benefits available to regional members and establish programmes that will drive the region’s football forward.”The role of the office is to serve our 31 members, to elevate our service level and improve the lot of the Caribbean. It’s a wide area of responsibility as we want improve administration, improve grassroots programmes and our capacity-building programmes.”We want this region to become one that the global football family will respect, not only on the pitch but off it,” he said.He noted that not everyone in the region will qualify for a World Cup, but he believes every association has the right to follow their dreams and aspirations and that the office was established to help everyone maximise their full potential.ACHIEVING DREAMS”We are not here to dictate how and what they dream, but to help them once they have that vision and the aspiration, to achieve it. But the reality is that we have a diverse region, we have countries with ten million people and we have countries with 500,000 people so everybody will have different objectives and different goals,” he continued.Reid also wants to make the most of benefits available to regional members and use it to drive the region’s football forward.”We also want to utilise the assistance coming to our region, through the ONE CONCACAF initiative, through the FIFA Forward Programme and ensure that investment coming to the region is efficient in how it is utilised, where we can move Caribbean football in a new direction,” he reasoned.Meanwhile, the former CONACACAF director of competitions, has also employed the services of two of his trusted employees of the JFF in Latoya DaCosta, who will oversee operations involving CONCACAF competitions and Andre Waugh, who has been drafted as development manager. However, other administrative slots remain unfilled and other staff members will be added in the coming days and weeks.last_img read more

Spurs beat Arsenal, no St Totteringham Day

first_img Had it not been for Cech’s agility, Arsenal might have fallen behind sooner. The second period opened with Victor Wanyama’s shot being tipped over and Kane’s effort collected by the goalkeeper. But Arsenal was undone in the 55th minute. Kane ran onto a long throw-in and held up the ball under pressure from Gabriel Paulista. Alli seized possession and passed to Eriksen, who weaved past Laurent Koscielny before testing Cech. The shot was parried, but Alli stuck out his left boot into a crowded area to clip the loose ball into the net. Arsenal never recovered. It took 77 seconds for the penalty to be conceded, with Kane going down lightly under Gabriel’s challenge and winning the spotkick. Kane thrives against Arsenal. His 27th goal of the season was his fifth in five league games against Arsenal. Cech kept his team in the game, with a flying save that prevented Vertonghen’s shot from curling into the top corner and Toby Alderweireld’s effort being blocked. But Arsenal could find no way back against Tottenham, which is now virtually assured of making the top four, given its superior goal difference over fifth-place Manchester United. Arsenal’s season could still end with the FA Cup if it beats Chelsea at Wembley Stadium. Tottenham will still be hoping Chelsea doesn’t enter the final as Premier League champions. LONDON, England (AP): Tottenham shifted the balance of power in north London’s football rivalry by securing its first Premier League finish above Arsenal in 22 years with a 2-0 victory over its neighbor yesterday. Arsenal imploded inside 77 seconds at the start of the second half to hand Tottenham a ninth consecutive league win. In the penultimate game at White Hart Lane before the stadium is demolished, Dele Alli scrambled the ball into the net and Harry Kane won a soft penalty that he converted. “We worked hard. We outworked them,” Kane said. “The fans have got the bragging rights for now, but we’ve still got four important games to finish off.” Manager Mauricio Pochettino’s hopes of overhauling Chelsea’s four-point lead at the top of the league are fading after the leaders’ win over Everton. But Spurs are still locking down second place for their highest finish in 54 years and on the brink of a second successive season in the Champions League for the first time. There was no doubting which team was on top. It looked like Tottenham might pay for its missed chances in the first half when Alli headed wide and Christian Eriksen swept a shot over and Jan Vertonghen was denied by goalkeeper Petr Cech.
