GFF/Pele Alumni Frank Watson U-15 League – EBFA

first_imgLambert bangs five past Diamond United as Agricola take over leadAGRICOLA Red Triangle have maintained their unblemished record when they posted their third win in as many matches, a 7-0 whipping of Diamond United last Sunday in Day 5 action of the East Bank Football Association (EBFA) leg of the GFF/Pele Alumni Frank Watson U-15 Intra Association League.Playing at the Grove Playfield, Agricola subjected Diamond United to their second loss in as many matches. Grove Hi Tech were held to a 2-2 draw by Mocha Champs, the second draw in as many days for the Grove boys, who were overtaken by their rivals Agricola who have played one match less.Sunday’s matches saw two upsets with newcomers Samatta Point/Kaneville needling Soesdyke, while Diamond Upsetters edged Herstelling Raiders 2-1. The latter were without the tournament’s leading marksman Shoran James.Agricola’s Brian Lambert was the man on fire on the day as he hit in five of Agricola’s goals in the 3rd, 8th, 36th, 52nd and 56th minutes. He has now taken his tally in the league to 7. Floyd Boyce supported with a goal in the 16th minute while Jamal Fiffe tucked in the other in the 30th minute.Grove Hi Tech, coming off a draw on Saturday with Samatta Point/Kaneville were hoping to nail full points against Mocha Champs but the Mocha lads fought back admirably twice to earn an equal share of the points.Grove captain Devon Padmore scored both their goals in the 17th and 27th minutes. Mocha got their goals off the boot of Jermaine Harry in the 16th minute and Shemel Allen in the 20th.Diamond Upsetters were in no mood to give Herstelling Raiders a smooth day at the office; they recorded their first points of the league after suffering two defeats. Mario Richards handed Diamond Upsetters the lead on 14 minutes but Damien Persaud responded in like manner for Herstelling in the 39th minute for an even first half.But with the game 43 minutes old, Upsetters regained the lead through Abdullah Amin’s goal which turned out to be the winning strike. Hamid was one of Upsetters’ leading players in the just concluded Ralph Green-sponsored Under-11 League.Samatta Point/Kaneville, riding high from their 1-1 draw with Grove on Saturday, built on that high with a 1-0 win over Soesdyke Falcons; it was the latter’s third loss in as many games.Netting the golden goal was Matthew Austin in the 22nd minute.Matches will continue this weekend at the same venue.Latest Points StandingsTeam                          P          W        L         D         F          A         GD      PointsAgricola                      3          3          0          0          12        2          +10      9Grove                          4          2          0          2          9          4          +5        8Samatta Point/KV       3          2          0          1          5          2          +3        7Herstelling                   4          2          2          0          19        7          +12      6Mocha                         3          1          1          1          4          4          0          4Timehri                        2          1          1          0          2          2          0          3Friendship                   2          1          1          0          5          4          -1         3Swan FC                     2          1          1          0          2          3          -1         3Kuru Kururu               3          1          2          0          2          5          -3         3Diamond Upsetters     3          1          2          0          2          5          -3         3Soesdyke                     3          0          3          0          2          7          -5         0Diamond United         2          0          2          0          1          20        -19       0last_img read more

Special teams nearly cost the Bulldogs big against Arkansas

first_imgSTARKVILLE – Dan Mullen believed in his special teams. The sixth-year coach backed both his kickers and punt returners prior to Mississippi State’s game against Arkansas.One made him look good. The other let him down.Mississippi State’s field goal unit played a vital role in the Bulldogs’ 17-10 win on Saturday. Jamoral Graham, on the other hand, mishandled a punt for the fourth straight game. Fred Ross took over for the true freshman after Graham’s fumble in the second quarter.Mullen hinted earlier in the week that, if healthy, Jameon Lewis would field punts for Mississippi State. The senior returned 22 last year. Lewis saw limited time on offense.“He’s still not 100 percent. To put him in that situation when he’s limited,” MSU coach Dan Mullen said. “We tried to limit him during the week. He was cleared for the Kentucky game and (Saturday), but he’s still not 100 percent.”Lewis caught his first pass since the LSU game on Sept. 20. It went for 2 yards.Ross fielded the first punts of his of his career against Arkansas. He fair caught each one, so he officially did not record a return.“Fred did a nice job catching the punts, though,” Mullen said. “In practice, everybody does a nice job.”Mullen has raved about both his kickers’ abilitiy during practice this season. Evan Sobiesk and Logan Cooke didn’t miss many kicks during their pregame routines. Sobiesk even converted a 50-yarder.The sophomore succeeded in the game as well. He drilled a 37-yard field goal in the third quarter to tie the game at 10.“I had faith in him,” Mullen said.It came after MSU decided to keep its offense on the field on the previous drive. The Bulldogs took their chances on fourth-and-one from the 22 rather than attempting a 39 yard field goal.“That was me. That had nothing to do with anything else,” Mullen said. “We had fourth-and-one at the 20. I thought we were moving the ball. I thought we’d have a good play called.”Instead, Arkansas stopped quarterback Dak Prescott on a rush.“As it shook out, I probably should have kicked form there,” Mullen said. “It’s much easier to make the call after the game.”Sobiesk’s make was the longest of the season for Mississippi State. He is still the only MSU kicker to make a field goal this season. He is now 5 of 6. His season-long prior to Saturday was 28 yards.Arkansas’ special teams didn’t come through in the fourth. The Razorbacks missed a 42-yarder early in the quarter.The Razorbacks decided not to attempt field goals later in the fourth, as well. They converted on fourth-and-three form their own 21 midway through thequarter.In the end, it didn’t matter. Arkansas nevercut the lead to less than a touchdown in the final 13 minutes.Mullen opted for true freshman Logan Cooke last week to attempt a 40-plus yarder against Kentucky. He wanted to get the first-year player confidence in a game situation.MSU hadn’t attempted a field goal when trailing in the second half this season. It now has experience in pressure situations.“That was a huge kick for us,” Mullen said.Contact Michael Bonner at (601) 961-7289 or mbonner @jackson.gannett.com.

Guyana U-17s begin title hunt today

first_imgThe Guyana national U17 cricket team will face their first challenge on their quest to bring this country its maiden title in the Cricket West Indies Regional Under-17 tournament in Trinidad and Tobago. Under West Indies Under 16 captain, Sachin Singh, the South American boys will face off against Windward Islands in their first match today.They will then play Leeward Islands (July 12), Trinidad and Tobago (July 14), Jamaica (July 16) and Barbados (July 17) in that order.Singh is easily the most experienced campaigner, having travelled with the side for the past two years and is the talk of any dressing room for his big hitting ability and his medium pace bowling. Singh will also have the services of his deputy, Andre Seepersaud, who is a decent, middle-order batsman and provides another spin option to complement spin triumvirate Nigel Deodat, Niran Bissu and Hrithik Singh.The pace department is also stocked with the likes of Essequibo duo Sylvan Williams and Sheldon Charles alongside Leon Swamy and Gevon Shultz.The balance of the side comes with Dwain Dick, a belligerent batsman with a touch of deadly spin bowling ensuring that the skipper has variety with the ball and depth in the batting line up. Wicketkeeper/batsman Yeudistir Persaud and Navendra Persaud provide good top-order strength and if they get going there is no total too large.Singh has commented on the team, noting that  the players are a good bunch and they gel really well, pointing out that it is just a matter of going and executing in an effort to create history.Guyana U-17 squad: Sachin Singh (Captain), Andre Seepersaud (Vice Captain), Seon Glassgow, Navendra Persaud, Yeudistir Persaud(W Keeper), Hrithik Singh, Niran Bissu, Nigel Deodat, Gevon Shultz, Badesh Parsotam, Sheldon Charles, Sylvian Williams, Leon Swamy, Dwain Dick, Nazeer Mohamed (Manager) and Orin Bailey (Coach).last_img read more

Can Caps Keep Winning in Game Four?

first_imgPlease follow and like us: The Washington Capitals are currently ahead in the Stanley Cup Finals 2-1 against the Las Vegas Golden Knights. Winning games two and three of the series is a huge momentum booster for Washington. The offense for the Caps has been outstanding the entire series putting up no less than three goals a game against Marc-Andre Fleury. Defense was not at it’s best game one to say the least, but since then it has been stellar. Braden Holtby has found his rhythm and in game three had a 95.5 save percentage. Overall the Washington Capitals have been playing in some peoples opinions, the best hockey in their playoff run.Coming out firing on offense in game one did not do the job for the Washington Capitals. Putting up four goals must not have been good enough as Braden Holtby and the Capitals defense did not play well letting in six goals. Washington has a combined ten goals in three games this series. Averaging 26.67 shots a game in the finals, they would like to have more. Even though any team would like to have over 26.67 shots a game, Washington is converting on their chances. Ultimately, this has been the difference in the series.Defense after game one has been almost as good as it gets. with a combined 84 hits and 44 blocks in game two and three alone has gained the Caps a 2-1 series lead. If the defense keeps playing like this, it will be hard for shots to get to Holtby. Braden Holtby has a combined 95.2 save percentage in games two and three. He has been a big contributor to Washington’s defense the entire offseason.A 3-1 series lead would be monumental for the Capitals in the Stanley Cup Finals. Having that big of a lead in any series makes the team much more confident and sure about winning the series. For the Caps to do this the offence has to keep playing well and the defense will have to keep being stellar.last_img read more

Raiders v Sharks: Schick Preview

first_imgThe Sharks headed to Melbourne last week with the chance of winning their first minor premiership since 1999.That chance slipped away as the Storm prevailed by 20 points. Making matters worse, Cronulla wouldn’t even finish second with the Raiders leapfrogging them less than 24 hours later after flogging the Wests Tigers 52-10.Canberra welcome back prop Junior Paulo (back) who will start instead of now 18th man Paul Vaughan as Ricky Stuart’s men look to make it a whopping 11-straight victories.The Sharks have lost Joseph Paulo (knee) for a couple of weeks but coach Shane Flanagan has welcomed back Ricky Leutele. Leutele starts in the centres and Gerard Beale returns to the bench and will be joined by 18th man Kurt Capewell. Watch out Raiders: Retiring Sharks hooker Michael Ennis has missed one game this season and not only did it coincide with the last time his side faced the Raiders, it also signalled the end of Cronulla’s unbeaten run of 16 games. Ennis has laid on 10 tries this year from dummy half and averaged 36.3 tackles per game. His work in the middle was sorely missed against Canberra six weeks ago as opposition rake Josh Hodgson ran rampant. Watch out Sharks: Jordan Rapana and Joey Leilua have combined so well this year they now have their own couple name. ‘Leipana’ have scored just over a quarter of Canberra’s tries this year between them (Rapana 20, Leilua 11) while combining for 16 try assists and 245 tackle breaks. It spells bad news for Sharks’ left-edge players, particularly the competition’s biggest defensive battler James Maloney (99 missed tackles). Key match-up: Jack Wighton v Ben Barba. With Wighton cleared by the judiciary on Tuesday night, a highly-anticipated clash with Sharks counterpart Ben Barba beckons. Barba has been one of the NRL’s success stories in 2016. With 18 try assists and 15 tries to his name Barba has proved a perfect foil for Sharks halves James Maloney and Chad Townsend. Wighton benefits Canberra most as a running fullback (137.1 metres per game) but is more than capable of laying on tries with eight tries and 12 assists under his belt already this year.  The history: Played 66; Raiders 31, Sharks 35. The Raiders and Sharks have traded wins in 2016. They last played in Round 22 when the Raiders prevailed by 16 points at Southern Cross Group Stadium. Since 2010 that these teams have traded two wins for two losses. What are the odds: Eighty per cent of money has been for the Raiders in the head-to-head market, and Canberra 13-plus is the best backed winning option with Sportsbet punters. Rapana is most popular in the first try scorer market ahead of skipper Jarrod Croker. Latest odds at Sportsbet.com.au.Match officials: Referee: Matt Cecchin. Assistant Referee: Alan Shortall. Sideline Officials: Rickey McFarlane and Jeff Younis.Televised: Fox Sports 1 – Live Coverage from 2:25pm. The way we see it: There seems to be too many points in the Raiders to deny them the win on Saturday afternoon. The Raiders haven’t scored scored less than 20 points in a game since their last loss to the Broncos back in Round 14. Cronulla have managed to score more than 20 points just once in their past six games. Raiders by 10 points.last_img read more

In Peru, a new president is faced with old conservation challenges

first_imgVizcarra has inherited the task of making critical decisions on the long-term, global benefit of an intact Amazon against short-term profits from mining, extraction and both legal and illegal logging.Nowhere is this struggle for balance more critical than in the country’s nature reserves and national parks such as Manu National Park.Manu is renowned as one of the world’s richest biodiversity hotspots, with greater numbers of certain plants and animals than any other park on the planet.Critics cite a legacy of neglect and question whether the Vizcarra administration will do any better enforcing the nation’s environmental protection laws. MANU NATIONAL PARK, Peru — There was movement in the understory deep in the dense rainforest off Trail 6. We saw a shadow scurry left to right, followed by more rustling. White-lipped peccary. Several of them.“You’re going to be as quiet as you’ve ever been in your life,” biologist Miles Silman told me as he stepped off the trail, lifting his muddied, shin-high rubber boots and setting them down softly, silently. I followed, mimicking his steps, looking for spongy footfalls, avoiding branches. Silman is with Wake Forest University in North Carolina, and has been doing field research in these jungles for more than a quarter of a century.It had already been a productive early-morning hike in Cocha Cashu Biological Station (CCBS), a world-renowned tropical ecology field station in the middle of Manu National Park in the southern Peruvian Amazon.Manu is equally renowned as the world’s richest biodiversity hotspot. It has a greater number of species — trees, frogs, birds such as horned screamers and hoatzins, butterflies, primates such as emperor tamarin and howler monkeys, snakes, big cats such as jaguar and puma, and oddball mammals such as giant otters, tapir, capybara, giant anteaters and spectacled bears — than any other park on the planet.The dense, untrammeled jungle in Cocha Cashu, where nature is in near-perfect balance. Photo courtesy Jason Houston.We set out in search of peccary after we had already marveled at a fist-sized pygmy marmoset with an even tinier baby clinging to her furry, brown back. Squirrel and spider monkeys, working in tandem, leaped through the canopy in search of fruiting fig trees. A flock of jet-black, razor-billed curassows, the size of wild turkeys and just as graceless in flight, crashed from tree to tree. A twig-thin snake the color of leaf litter slithered underfoot. Spiderwebs with shining interior spirals alerted birds and bats to steer clear.If ever there were a Garden of Eden, a lightly trammeled old-growth forest with soaring trees and nature in near-perfect harmony, Cocha Cashu is it. But like everything else in the tropics, the entire ecosystem is struggling from the effects of global warming. And Manu, established in 1973 and roughly the size of Connecticut, is also under threat from human incursions inside and outside its borders, just like so many other Peruvian nature preserves.last_img read more
