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.

Done deal: This striker is on his way to Anfield but should Liverpool welcome him in January?

first_img2 Divock Origi has been linked with an early move to Liverpool 2 Liverpool’s attacking woes reached a new low this season when it was confirmed that star striker Daniel Sturridge will face a further spell on the sidelines.The England man’s absence has been keenly felt by the Redmen, and the news that he could be out for another six weeks is a major blow.With Mario Balotelli and Rickie Lambert struggling to find the net and Fabio Borini only at Anfield because the club couldn’t get rid of the Italian in the summer, boss Brendan Rodgers faces a struggle to turn around a stuttering campaign.According to reports, the Kop chief is considering a surprise move to recall Divock Origi from his season-long loan at Ligue 1 side Lille – a move that would cost Liverpool in the region of £5m.The Belgian sensation officially signed for the Merseysiders from Lille in the summer, but as part of the deal was immediately loaned back to the club for the 2014/15 campaign.But while Kopites demand a resolution to their striking problems, would recalling Origi be a smart move?Take a look at the youngster’s stats this season… The answer in a nutshell, would seem to be ‘no’.Liverpool’s problems in attack go deeper than simply a quick personnel change.The loss of Luis Suarez was more damaging than many first thought and while it seems almost unfathomable that there wasn’t some sort of contingency plan in place ahead of his – almost inevitable – departure, that is what appears to be the case.Although Origi is an exciting, if raw, talent, it would be incredibly unfair to expect him to turn around Liverpool’s attacking fortunes in an instant.At 19 years old, he is in an important developmental period in his career and requires time and patience, rather than expectation and pressure to perform.While he proved for Belgium during the World Cup that he knows the route to goal, he has hardly been prolific for Lille this season.Four goals in 18 appearances across all competitions is an ok return for a developing striker, but it is by no means anything that Rodgers would be able to place faith in.Indeed a conversion rate of less than 20 per cent is not anywhere near good enough to warrant immediate first team football at Anfield, while his profligacy and inconsistency in front of goal is more comparable with Balotelli than Sturridge.Origi could prove to be an excellent acquisition for Liverpool, but that doesn’t mean he is schooled in the Reds’ style and traditions. He will need time to adjust to life at Liverpool and the pressure of the Premier League.If Rodgers truly believes that he needs to bring someone in during the January transfer window, then his best policy would be to move for a vastly more experienced player who has a track record of settling quickly.CLICK HERE TO SEE SIX SUPER STRIKERS LIVERPOOL SHOULD LOOK AT SIGNINGLiverpool fans, should you recall Divock Origi from his loan or try to bring in a more experienced striker?
