Hydel cut down high-riding Denham Town

first_imgHydel High halted their recent losing skid and surged into sole leadership of Group I courtesy of a 3-0 whipping of red-hot Denham Town, in second-round action of the ISSA-FLOW Manning Cup football competition at Spanish Town Prison Oval yesterday.The Ferry-based school put an end to Denham Town’s seven-match unbeaten run following consecutive losses from the Walker Cup and FLOW Super Cup knockout competitions.Hydel’s charge was led by Nicholas Nelson, who scored in the sixth and 44th minutes. Nelson’s tally is now at 11. Stephen Barnett scored the third goal, finishing off a rebound from a 29th-minute penalty. Barnett has netted 10 times this campaign.Besides them, Rodario Edwards put in a Man of the Match performance, bolstered with two assists.Hydel’s coach, Geoffrey Maxwell, praised their output.”We did what we had to do to win. The competition is wide open. Playing in the second round of the Manning Cup, the most important thing for us to do is try and qualify, then we take it round by round. Our intention is to always try and win and play tactically,” Maxwell said.Denham Town’s Omar Edwards called it a tough loss.”To see us lose like this was really bad, after winning seven games. Actually, we have two games to go, and who knows what will happen? That’s six points we have to play for and it still can allow us to advance,” he reasoned.Meanwhile, former champions Camperdown High continued to have a less-than-stellar season in the competition, with a come-from-behind 1-1 draw with Innswood High School in the day’s curtain-raiser, played at 1 p.m. at the same venue. Sanjai Nelson scored for Innswood in the 31st minute, while Camperdown pulled one back from a 49th-minute own goal.last_img read more

Top shooters shine at Fast and Furious

first_img The clash in the standard division among Brown Jr, Andy Yap and Orville ‘Red’ Henriques lived up to the Fast and Furious hype with accurate shooting, leaving onlookers guessing the outcome. However, Brown’s six-stage win gave him the high overall trophy ahead of Yap, who took four stages with 97.11 percentage points. Henriques’ 92.84 percentage was only good for third. Ellsworth Dixon’s fourth-place finish handed him victory in C Class. Patrick Evelyn shot 82.69 percentage for fifth overall and first in B Class. David Lazarus won D Class and Christopher Christie took unclassified. Moulton left nothing to chance in the open division, schooling Cheung with a 10-stage win. Shooting on day one, Moulton left scores unmatched by Cheung, who ended with a 85.84 per cent shoot to take second spot. After a poor showing in the Jamaica Cup in July, due to faulty ammunition, Howie Brown made amends by taking third with a 75.17 percentage shoot. Debutant Ryan Grala won fourth with 66.42 per cent. Competitors will now turn their attention to the Todd Jarrett Invitational at the Negril Tactical Shooting Range, set for Saturday. The nine-stage, 250-round match will be governed by the United States Practical Shooting Association and is expected to be another humdinger with six-time world champion, Grand Master Todd Jarrett, headlining the competition. INTENSE ACTION LESGAR ‘Speedy’ Murdock, Ron Brown Jr and Lennie Moulton topped 62 of Jamaica’s ace shooters to win their respective divisions of Woodleigh’s Fast and Furious Pistol Championship on Sunday, November 29, at the sprawling May Pen range. Murdock surprised production division shooters, leaving his normal open division to beat local favourite Ryan Bramwell. Brown Jr topped standard and Moulton got the better of Kevin ‘Fast Foot’ Cheung in the open division. The 10-stage, 200-round, International Practical Shooting Confederation Level Two match did not disappoint. Competitors had to negotiate stages which left them no option but to go all out, forcing mistakes ranging from novice to expert. Murdock showed up unexpectedly to shoot standard, commandeering seven of 10 stages to Bramwell’s three. Senior veteran Anthony ‘TJ’ Johnson was third overall and first in Master Class. Christopher Nunez took top honours in B Class; Darin Richards, C Class; Sanjay Welsh, D Class; and Dane Smith won unclassified. Yeonie Simpson and Jackie Richards represented the ladies well, winning high lady and runner-up, respectively, in production.last_img read more

Bolt eager to show speed at Racers Grand Prix

first_imgSpeaking at the launch of the inaugural Racers Grand Prix yesterday, club patriarch Glen Mills is promising a meet with a difference, while his top draw, Usain Bolt, says he will be using the June 11 event to show his readiness ahead of the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.”I’m looking forward to it, I am excited. I don’t get to compete here that often, so the fact that I will be competing this year is a motivation to work even harder to make sure that I will be in top form and run fast times to show the country that I am ready to go to Rio and do big things,” Bolt told The Gleaner after yesterday’s launch at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel.”This helps a lot of athletes; a lot of athletes really want to compete here. I think it’s a well-positioned meet because it’s just before the trials, so they can go out and compete and know where they are just before the trials, so it will be the right time for me,” he added.A long-time ambition of Mills, the IAAF Area Permit-certified Racers Grand Prix – which gets under way at 6:30 p.m. inside the National Stadium just a few weeks before the National Senior Championships, the Olympic trials – will boast some of the biggest names in local and international track and field, including Bolt.Mills, the driving force behind Racers Track Club, promised that the meet will bring together the largest collection of Olympic and World Championships medallists ever to compete on our shores, and believes it will serve as a catalyst for the formation of a regional circuit of international athletics meetings.EXPECTED PARTICIPATIONOrganisers are expecting the participation of 112 athletes in 15 events – the 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 110m hurdles, 400m hurdles, javelin, and discus for male athletes, and the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, 100m hurdles, high jump, and triple jump for females.In addition to local stars Bolt, Yohan Blake, Asafa Powell, Danielle Williams, Warren Weir, Hansle Parchment and Rasheed Dwyer, several international standouts such as 400m World Champion Wayde van Niekerk (South Africa); American stars LaShawn Merritt, Jason Richardson, Queen Harrison, Lolo Jones, Tori Bowie and Isaiah Young; Caribbean standouts Shaunae Miller, Michelle-Lee Ahye, and Kelly-Ann Baptiste; plus Great Britain’s Zharnel Hughes, are among the confirmed athletes.”We are currently having negotiations with several other big names in the sport and are awaiting confirmation from others who have expressed strong interest in competing at Racers Grand Prix,” Mills shared.”I am excited, I’m very excited about it,” Mills added. “This region is the most powerful in the athletics world and boasts a number of world stars and emerging future champions in the sport. The potential of success is great and will bring meaningful benefits to the region.”BROADCASTING MEETMills mentioned plans to broadcast the meet in the European, North American and regional markets, and hopes that its growth will help the club to secure much-needed technical equipment and facilities such as electronic starting systems, high-speed cameras for biomechanics analysis, and a treatment centre to aid in its continued success.Newly returned sports minister, Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, welcomed the meet and believes it presents several benefits to the country’s sporting brand.”We are delighted and extremely proud that our country is staging another major track and field event of international repute,” Grange said.”The inaugural Racers Grand Prix is testimony as well as further proof that we are a major force in global athletics. It provides yet another opportunity for brand Jamaica as the world will be watching some of the best athletes on show,” Grange added.Organisers have promised to confirm ticket and entertainment package information at a later date.last_img read more

Brathwaite, Powell among WI stars for T20 tourney

first_imgDHAKA, Bangladesh (CMC):Twenty20 World Cup hero Carlos Brathwaite, along with rising stars Rovman Powell and Nicholas Pooran, were among 14 West Indies players picked up in the players’ draft for the Bangladesh Premier League set to bowl off here next month.Brathwaite, who smashed four consecutive sixes off the last over in the T20 World Cup final as West Indies dramatically beat England in India last April, has gone to the Barisal Bulls, while Powell will turn out for Comilla Victorians and Pooran for new franchise Khulna Titans.Test and one-day captain Jason Holder has also been picked up by Victorians, while superstar opener Chris Gayle has moved from Bulls to Chittagong Vikings for the coming season, which bowls off on November 4.SOUGHT-AFTER PLAYERThe 28-year-old Brathwaite has emerged as one of the most sought-after players on the T20 circuit ever since his heroics in the T20 World Cup.He turned out for Delhi Daredevil in the Indian Premier League and is also expected to feature in this year’s Big Bash in Australia.However, the strapping all-rounder will be unavailable for most of the BPL campaign between November 10-28.He is currently part of the West Indies one-day and Test team in the United Arab Emirates for the series against Pakistan.Powell, meanwhile, was part of the Windies squad for the just-concluded T20 International series against Pakistan, though he failed to make his debut in the three matches.last_img read more

I didn’t understand system – Russell tries to explain whereabouts violation

first_imgWest Indies cricketer AndrÈ Russell took the witness stand in his whereabouts violation hearing at the Jamaica Conference Centre yesterday.However, the hearing, which was scheduled to end yesterday, will resume on Tuesday with the cross-examination of the all-rounder.JADCO’s executive director Carey Brown and whereabouts officer Tajae Smith also gave testimonies.Russell’s lawyer, Patrick Foster, tried to prove that his client took all possible steps to file his whereabouts information but found it difficult, with his compact schedule and limited knowledge and training, to update his whereabouts on JADCO’s ADAMS website.”I tried to put in my whereabouts information but could not do it properly,” Russell stated.Russell said that he made frequent trips to JADCO to update his info and was usually assisted by staff, including Smith.However, during his cross-examination, JADCO’s representative, Lackston Robinson, questioned Russell’s knowledge of JADCO’s rules, guidelines, and consequences with regard to whereabouts filing and tried to prove that Russell knew of his filing failures and the laws that govern such situations. Robinson argued that the cricketer should have acted more responsibly in order to avoid his present predicament.But Foster continued to focus on JADCO’s blunder in their correspondence with the West Indian all-rounder, who said that at one point, he grew confused with communiquÈs from JADCO after repeated attempts to update his whereabouts through his agent, Will Quinn, and West Indies Cricket Board representative Judith Lue.Foster argued that the anti-doping agency did very little to educate and train cricketers on updating their whereabouts information on the ADAMS website.Russell had enlisted Lue to assist with his whereabouts filing in the April to June quarter, while in India competing, with the assistance of Smith, who, in his testimony, admitted giving Lue instructions on updating the system.It was noted that Russell contacted Smith to retrieve his log-in details before passing that information on to Lue, who then called Smith for guidance as it relates to navigating the submission system.Russell did his whereabouts submission for January to March on February 17.However, Foster noted that although Lue completed the April to July update, it was not recorded on the system. As a result the commission erred by sending the cricketer two filing failures in the same quarter.He noted that the filing failure from July to September did not clearly state that Russell was in danger. But he did receive notification from JADCO on July 6 to file his whereabouts by July 13, with a deadline extension to the 24th.THE EXPLANATION”The rules are clear: Where there are two filing failures in one quarter, notification must be clear so the athlete knows he’s under threat,” Foster remarked.”The complainant does not have a proper threshold on the conduct and methods of the system, so there is no proper basis for a second filing failure,” he insisted.Russell received another email on the 20th, but he only believed it to be an extension of his first filing failure deadline.On his return home, he visited JADCO and updated his information, but on reaching home, he was presented with a package regarding his filing failures. Russell shared that his reason for not meeting the September 9 deadline was because Quinn told him to focus on cricket as he (Quinn) would take care of it.Foster also highlighted the fact that the cricketer had done numerous doping tests in other countries around the world.Earlier, JADCO executive director Brown testified via telephone, however, his testimony was delayed for about an hour after JADCO representative Robinson protested Foster’s team’s use of the telephone, which is not allowed.However, after getting consensus panel chairman, Hugh Faulkner allowed Foster and his team to continue using their communication devices.last_img read more

UAAP finds no referee bias in controversial La Salle-Adamson game

OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales? View comments There was glaring discrepancy between the number of fouls by both teams. Adamson was whistled for 33 fouls as compared to La Salle’s 12 that resulted to a huge free throw disparity. The Green Archers went to the line 39 times while the Falcons only had five attempts.But Saguisag said that the numbers don’t show everything as he found no controversy with how the game was handled upon review.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throne“The stat sheets show that 33 fouls were called against Adamson and 12 were called against La Salle. While the disparity in statistics tend to suggest biased officiating, it is imperative to focus on whether or not the non-calls were actually incorrect since the disparity in non-calls could be an indication of how the teams played, i.e., one team was more focused on its inside game and lane incursions, while the other team was more predisposed in its perimeter game, among other factors,” the statement read.Just like any other game, Saguisag resigned to the fact that errors, bad calls and non-calls, will always be a part of the game for the referees, and the said game wasn’t an exception. Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next “We recognize the importance of having officials who must be able to perform at the highest levels. We also acknowledge the need to maintain public confidence in the league. Further to their preventive suspension (provisional in nature and not based on a finding of guilt), the officials concerned have been heavily reprimanded with a warning of stiffer penalties should evidence of bad faith or malice surface even after this review. They also remain excluded from the pool of referees for the finals series to remove any cloud of doubt in the Finals,” he said.

Particularly, there were 10 incorrect non-calls on fouls committed by La Salle. However, there were seven incorrect non-calls on fouls committed by Adamson as well,” he said. “We do understand the frustration of the players, coaches, supporters, and the viewing public in general when the right call is not made. Teams train hard and lay everything on the floor to compete.”Saguisag assured everyone that the league office is as impartial as ever as he vows fairness in every game played in the UAAP.“The office of the commissioner will never tolerate or condone any conduct, act, or omission that would compromise the integrity of the sport,” he said. “However, bias or partiality on the part of the officials cannot be presumed. Partiality is related to intention which is a mental process, an internal state of mind, that must be judged by the person’s overt acts.“This office cannot infer bias or partiality on the basis of errors in judgment. These must be proved with clear and convincing evidence — which, upon meticulous review of the game, are absent in the case. To hold otherwise would be to render refereeing untenable, for no one called upon to officiate a sport, where you only have a brief moment to decide (without the benefit of a replay), can be infallible in their judgment.”Saguisag also said referees Enan Alejo, Ian Borbe, and Mollie de Luna, will remain out of the officials pool for Game 2 of the UAAP Season 80 men’s basketball Finals, as well as in the ongoing juniors tournament.ADVERTISEMENT Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Rebo Saguisag.
