Petersfield surprise Cornwall

first_imgWestern Bureau:Maliki Reid’s hat-trick led Petersfield to a surprise 4-3 victory over 10-man Cornwall College at the Frome Sports complex yesterday.The win secured Peterfield’s spot among the eight daCosta Cup Interzone winners in the FLOW Super Cup and eliminated Cornwall.Over at Jarrett Park, Rusea’s found renewed hope with a 7-1 lopsided victory over Herbert Morrison to join Petersfield in the next round of the daCosta Cup.It was a splendid display from the Westmoreland-based Petersfield, who earned their first ever win over Cornwall College in the daCosta Cup.Reid struck the opener in the seventh minute, then added his team’s second in the 12th and completed his hat-trick in the 34th minute.Cornwall, who were behind the eight- ball even before kick-off after arriving 20 minutes late for the 3 p.m. start, found some solace in attack when Peter-Lee Vassell found the net in the 22nd minute to cut the lead in half at 2-1.Reasonable leadBut a 3-1 deficit at half-time was always going to prove a challenge in the slippery underfoot conditions at the venue.Eight minutes into the second half, Donovon Brown struck a sweet free kick with venom into the Cornwall goal from 35 yards out to push his team into a 4-1 lead.Cornwall then got 59th-minute goal from Giovanni Reid, but then received a severe setback. Stephen Hylton, a key Cornwall College defender, was shown a straight red card in the 83rd minute for stomping on a Petersfield player.Playing a man short, however, Cornwall showed some amount of determination to reduce the deficit. Alrick Ottey this time netted in the 93rd minute, but it was a little too late to save their season.”We finally get one over Cornwall, and it is sweet,” said Petersfield’s assistant coach Dwayne Forrester.”The finishing was great today. We conceded three but managed to outscore them and earn a place in the Super Cup. Reaching the last 16 of the daCosta Cup is more important, but we will take it one game at a time,” he declared.Teams that have already qualified for the FLOW Super Cup as zone winners are Petersfield, St Elizabeth Technical, Clarendon College, Lacovia, Port Antonio, Vere Technical and Glenmuir.Yesterday’s resultsSTETHS 8 DeCarteret 0Annotto Bay 1 Fair Prospect 2Glenmuir 1 Seaforth 1Petersfield 4 Cornwall College 3Port Antonio 3 Brown’s Town 0Rusea’s 7 Herbert Morrison 1Clarendon College 0 Munro 0Manchester 1 Spalding 0Marcus Garvey 2 Lacovia 1Paul Bogle 4 Denbigh 0Dinthill 11 Islington 0Spot Valley 0 Manning’s 5Vere Tech 2 Ewarton 0Alston 0 Lennon 4Bog Walk 0 Kemps Hill 1last_img read more

Russell aiming to set a high bar, rich legacy

first_imgKOLKATA, India (CMC): Global trotting Twenty20 superstar Andre Russell says his ultimate goal is to create a rich legacy in cricket’s shortest format by setting the bar as high as he possibly can. The West Indies all-rounder was speaking in a post-match interview after a small but impressive cameo with the bat and brilliant death bowling that spurred Kolkata Knight Riders (KKR) to an exciting seven-run victory over Kings XI Punjab in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Wednesday. Russell lashed 16 from 10 balls at the death as KKR rallied to 164 for three and crippled Kings XI run chase with a fiery opening spell that reduced them to 13 for three in the fourth over. “This is what I really work hard for. I am an all-rounder. I know my job is not very easy. My job is very hard,” said the Jamaican cricketer. “So I don’t have a problem batting until the end then coming and bowl the first over of the innings and bowl the last over. I don’t mind doing it.” Russell, who started his innings in the 17th over, belted a four and a six in a 27-run third wicket partnership and returned to capture four wickets for 20 runs from his four overs. With Kings XI needing 12 runs from the final over, Man-of-the- Match Russell conceded just four runs and also effected a run-out and grabbed his fourth wicket. “I think as a youngster part of my legacy I plan to leave behind, I want to set the bar as high as possible. So I love these challenges,” said Russell, a member of the West Indies team that defeated England in the finals to regain the T20 World Cup recently. “I enjoy bowling in this moment where you know it is either I can win the game for my team, or if it goes the other way, I learn from it and take a positive from it knowing next time what can I do different. So I enjoy the load and I just want to go from strength to strength.” With the victory, KKR joined new boys Gujarat Lions on 12 points but topped the standings courtesy of a superior net run rate.last_img read more

Diamond Debate | Merritt vs James in 400m showdown

first_imgK.C. Graham: The 400 metres field for the Prefontaine Classic is loaded with five men with sub-44 seconds in the race. Lowe: The 400m is probably my favourite event these days, and how could it not be with the performances we’ve see over the past few seasons! K.C. Graham: A cracker is expected, but it is the rivalry between LaShawn Merritt and Kirani James that will take centre stage, following their keen battle at the meet the last two times they met there. Lowe: It’s likely to be another good race between the two, but James must be feeling extremely confident given his start to the season and the fact that he has won here for two consecutive years. K.C. Graham: Yes, he has, but based on his world-leading time in the 200 metres, Merritt could upstage him here. I think Michael Johnson’s meet record of 43.92 seconds done in 2000 is in serious danger here. Lowe: Eugene always gives us good times and I’m going to agree regarding the meet record. Yes, Merritt’s speed has looked impressive, but he just doesn’t seem to have the answer to James in recent times. James has dominated this rivalry, finishing ahead of the American in six of the last eight meetings. K.C. Graham: Could we have a repeat of 2014 when both athletes touched the line at 43.97 seconds? James will be seeking to go under 44 seconds for the third year in a row. He should start favourite to win here, but Merritt could use his early speed to kill him off, and I liked how he ran at the Rabat Meet, not extending himself, possibly saving for the clash with James at Eugene. Lowe: He can save all he wants. He will not beat Kirani in Eugene. I’m going for a Kirani win. What can we expect from Rusheen McDonald in this one? K.C. Graham: I saw McDonald in a short workout on Tuesday evening at Stadium East and he looked good. An improved performance from him is expected. The race itself, despite James drawing first blood over Merritt at Drakes (Drake Relays), I am giving Merritt the edge here as his 19.78 seconds personal best in the 200 metres will see him using his telling speed to overcome James. Lowe: I’m sticking with Kirani and anticipating a solid run from Rusheen.last_img read more

Said Snyder: “You have to be who you are. In the end it’s all about what style you play that fits your team.”Clippers: Rivers said G Milos Teodosic did not actually tear his plantar fascia on Sunday. “But whatever he did, he did it well. That’s why we’re calling it indefinite,” Rivers said. Austin Rivers started Tuesday in place of Teodosic. Doc Rivers said rookies Sindarius Thornwell or Jawun Evans will pick up the bulk of the extra guard time. Said Rivers: “I think Sindarius has a chance to be an elite defender in our league.”TEAM PLAYFor a team that lost three starters from last season — and three of its top five scorers — the Clippers are finding ways to share the scoring load early this season.Griffin is again leading the team in scoring, but he’s getting plenty of help.“It’s versatility,” he said. “I think that’s our calling card this year. We’re going to do a lot of things by committee.

Man U beats Arsenal 3-1 in EPL as de Gea shines in goal

first_imgMOST READ De Gea made 14 saves, equaling the record for the most stops in a Premier League match.It was a pulsating contest from start to finish at Emirates Stadium, with a glut of shots on goal, amazing goalkeeping, a sending off, and textbook counterattacks.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folk“The game was fantastic,” United manager Jose Mourinho said. “If I was in the stands, or if I was at home watching, I would be sad to see the game finish. In my case, it’s different because I want to win. I wanted to see the game finish.”United’s first two goals came early on from sloppy play in possession by Arsenal. Antonio Valencia intercepted a poor pass from defender Laurent Koscielny that was meant for wing back Sead Kolasinac. The Ecuadorean quickly drove forward and exchanged passes with Paul Pogba. Valencia struck a low shot that went in between goalkeeper Petr Cech’s legs in the fourth minute.Lingard doubled the lead in the 11th after Arsenal defender Shkodran Mustafi gave the ball away in United’s half. Anthony Martial flicked on to Lingard in the area and the latter’s effort careened in off a post.“The concentration at the back wasn’t sharp enough at the start,” Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger said.Arsenal got back into the match in the 49th when United defender Marcos Rojo tried and failed to play Alexandre Lacazette offside. Midfielder Aaron Ramsey was onside when he touched the ball back to Lacazette who fired it past De Gea.But it was the Spaniard’s quick reflexes that kept his team in the match, especially when he denied Arsenal an equalizer with a double save in the 57th from Lacazette and Alexis Sanchez.Mourinho sarcastically referred to Lacazette’s presence on the pitch, because before the match Wenger said the forward would most definitely not be available because of a groin injury on Wednesday.ADVERTISEMENT Emotional Tabal makes history, wins 5th straight Milo Marathon It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ Manchester United’s Jesse Lingard, second left, scores his side’s third goal of the game against Arsenal during the English Premier League soccer match at the Emirates Stadium, London, Saturday Dec. 2, 2017.

Arsenal had 33 shots on goal, with 15 on target, while United had eight shots with four on target.It was a statistic that upset Wenger, who lamented missed chances.“I’m just disappointed and angry that with the quality of that performance we have nothing to show for it,” he said, attributing his team’s loss to a lack of efficiency in finishing and De Gea’s “outstanding game.”It was Mourinho’s first away victory in 11 games against the “Big Six” and the first home loss for the Gunners after winning their last 12.
