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.

GRFU lacks funding ahead of RANs 7s

first_imgPresident of the Guyana Rugby Football Union (GRFU), Peter Greene, has discussed the recently concluded Americas Rugby Challenge (ARC) 15s and the more-than-familiar position of the GRFU being short of funds as it seeks qualification for the Pan American Games, to be held in Peru 2019.The claim is being made that the GRFU had submitted its list to the National Sports Commission (NSC) for the 2018/2019 year; but in a recent meet with Director of Sport, Christopher Jones, the GRFU was nowhere listed among the names to receive funding from the Government.The GRFU seems to be under tremendous financial strain after recently paying a medical bill that amounted to over two million dollars. This strain had implications for the holistic unity of the team, which has both local and overseas-based players competing in the ARC.Among other members of the GRFU present on Friday at Olympic House were Guyana’s 7s team Captain Dwayne Schroeder and the 15s Captain Ryan Gonsalves.Gonsalves defended his team even after the horrendous defeats Guyana suffered at the hands of Colombia and Paraguay at the 2018 ARC. His contention is that in the game of rugby, sometimes you win, or come out on the other end.Gonsalves urges Guyanese fans to support the team even in their time of loss. The captain was confident of a better showing with the current selection, but he said things seemed not to have gone their way on this occasion.Last year the team had made it to the finals, but this year wasn’t their time, he reasoned. Nevertheless, according to the GRFU boss, the team will bounce back strong with assiduous training.However, if they do manage to show at the upcoming Rugby Americas North (RAN) Sevens Championships, it is expected that the side would give a good account of itself.Photo: Dwayne Schroederlast_img read more
