Stronger St George’s College looking to deliver in Manning Cup

first_imgAhead of Thursday’s opening clash with Tivoli Gardens High School at the Edward Seaga Sports Complex, St George’s College (STGC) assistant coach Marcel ‘Fuzzy’ Gayle is pointing to a more “physical game” and killer instinct to STGC’s play this year, which could make the difference and help them win their 20th Manning Cup title in the ISSA-FLOW competition.The North Street-based school won the FLOW Super Cup last year, but were beaten Manning Cup finalists, going down 0-1 to arch-rivals Jamaica College.Gayle says he is not mindful about who the favourites are this season, but notes his team is expected to not just compete, “but play their natural game, entertain and win”.”I think, last year, if we were more stronger physically, the outcome would have been different; and we spent a little bit more time on the physical aspect of the game, passing the ball around, and we want to be a little bit more stronger and win more physical encounters so we can endure the duration of the competition,” Gayle highlighted.DISAPPOINTMENTS BEHIND THEMThe light blues, who were heavily touted as title favourites last season by virtue of outscoring all teams, also fell in the Walker Cup final on penalties to Wolmer’s Boys’. This year, Gayle says those disappointments are behind them.”We are fully motivated because St George’s College always goes out there and just play. We have retained 60 per cent of the squad from last year, with the inclusion of two outside players. It’s a good set up. The guys are carrying a little bit more stability to the squad, so we are ready now,” Gayle told The Gleaner.He tipped last season’s leading goalscorer, Alex Marshall, to get the goals again this year.”Every game is going to be a tough one. When our opponents hear the name of St George’s College, they always try to go out and play their best game against us, so we are looking forward to a tough match against Tivoli Gardens at Tivoli,” he reasoned.”For the last four or five years, we have been scoring over 40 goals, and this year, we will see if we can repeat the same,” he stressed.last_img read more

Impressive Cornwall blank Cedric Titus

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Defending champions St Elizabeth Technical numbered among the list of victors in yesterday’s matches in the second round of the ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup, edging a spirited Holmwood Technical 1-0 at Manchester High School, while Cornwall College impressed with victory over Cedric Titus. The three points gave them joint lead of Zone Three, on points, as Lennon High stamped their class all over Mile Gully in a 4-0 win. There were fine victories for Rusea’s, Cornwall College, Dinthill, Clarendon College and Petersfield, as the seeded teams begun their quest for a place in the last 16, from which the winners of each zone will contest the FLOW Super Cup against Manning Cup opposition. In the first game of the Jarrett Park double-header, St James High were lucky to escape with a 0-0 draw against Spot Valley in their Zone Two opening match. The draw gave them a share of the points with former winners Rusea’s, courtesy of their 1-0 win over Godfrey Stewart at Frome. Rusea’s lead the zone standings with three points. Spot Valley and St James are next with a point each. Godfrey Stewart, the 2005 champions, are languishing at the foot of the standings. However, it was all about Cornwall College in the day’s second fixture at Jarrett Park. Striker Peter-Lee Vassell fired a brace to carry the Dr Dean Weatherley-coached team to a resounding 3-0 win over Cedric Titus. The Cedric Titus team never looked like taking the game to Cornwall and suffered, as the ploy to soak up pressure backfired and Vassell in particular was severe in his execution. Playing in his first game of the season, Vassell netted the opener in the seventh minute and got his second goal of the match in the 77th minute. His strike partner, Jourdaine Fletcher, found the target in the 47th minute. HAPPY WITH OUTCOME Weatherley said he was happy with the outcome of the game, adding that his players were now settled into the belief that they can be special this season. “It was a very hard fought match. This is the difference from the preliminary round; it’s where teams start to shine and today I think we did that,” Weatherley said. “We have some brilliant players, but Peter-Lee is a special talent and his two goals today opened his appetite I think, so now we look forward to our next game Saturday against Petersfield.” Elsewhere, Dinthill rallied from a goal and a man down to edge Port Antonio 1-0 in Zone Six.

WI Women, England square off at Sabina

first_imgWest Indies Women and England Women will square off at Sabina Park today in the third game of their five-match one-day international series.Set for a 9:30 a.m. start, West Indies will enter the contest on a high after winning the second game by 38 runs at the Trelawny Stadium to level the series.England claimed the first encounter, also played in Trelawny, by a mere five runs.”Our aim remains to win the series,” stated West Indies captain Stafanie Taylor.”It was encouraging to see the way we fought back, and if we continue to show that form, I can only see us getting better results.”West Indies, in winning their encounter, had Taylor and batting all-rounder Deandra Dottin to thank and will be hoping the pair can lead the way once again.Taylor hit a top score of 56, while Dottin supported with 21 in their modest total of 148.Dottin, bowling medium pace, then claimed four for 19 off 6.4 overs, bowling at the death of the innings.England will be hoping that the form of left-armer Alex Hartley will continue, as well as opening pacer Katherine Brunt.Hartley, bowling mostly at the end of the innings, has taken seven wickets so far, while Brunt has picked up five.The visitors will also be hoping that captain Heather Knight and top batter Natalie Sciver will improve from their leading scores of 27 and 26 in the last fixture.”We will be looking to go at them very hard as we have been playing some good cricket on the tour so far,” Knight said.”We’ve got a few little things to tweak and, hopefully, we will do so in this game. We also would like to take the final three games, knowing that if we do, it would qualify us for the World Cup.”The West Indies would also qualify for the World Cup if they win the remaining three matches of the series.Australia, on 30 points, have already qualified, with West Indies, 20; England, 19; and New Zealand, 16, the next best teams.last_img read more

Chase loves Sabina Park

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica (CMC):West Indies all-rounder Roston Chase has revealed his love for Sabina Park following a face-saving half-century on the opening day of the 50th Test match at the historic venue here Friday.Chase struck 63, including seven boundaries and a huge straight six as West Indies closed on 244 for seven after rallying from a dire position of 71 for five in the first over after lunch.Last year, Chase wrote his name in the history books with a maiden Test century and five-wicket haul against India in his second Test at the same venue against India.GROWN TO LOVE SABINA”There was a time when I didn’t really enjoy playing here (at Sabina Park), but I have grown to love the ground a lot. I did well here against India last year, and knew I had to dig in today after we were in big trouble after lunch,” Chase said following the day’s play. “I think it’s the way the Jamaica crowd really gets behind you that I like the most.”Chase added a record 118 for the sixth wicket with keeper Shane Dowrich, who made 56 off 130 balls with nine fours. The pair came together after opener Kieran Powell perished after lunch. They kept the Pakistanis at bay until after tea, when Chase fell to a stupendous catch at long off by Wahab Riaz.last_img read more

Qatar is building another seven stadiums for use by 32 teams at the tournament in five years.“I’m very happy to say that our project scale is on time and there is no significant impact on our projects,” Al Thawadi said. “As of today we haven’t seen a significant impact on the cost. There might have been some minimal increase in terms of establishing alternative supply chains but these have been absorbed very, very quickly and been normalized as these supply chains have been put in place.”Qatar is investing more than $150 billion on infrastructure to handle the World Cup in the tiny desert nation. Under pressure from activists, Qatar has been compelled to raise living standards and worker rights for the large migrant workforce being relied on to construct venues. Al Thawadi said organizers are “always improving” worker welfare standards.Qatar has also staved off calls for the country to be stripped of the World Cup after facing investigations into the conduct of its bid.FIFA ethics investigators found that the Qataris used a full range of lavishly funded state and sports agencies to deliver the victory in the 2010 vote.
