Under-17 Boyz held by Cuba

first_img MANY CHANCES CREATED “The positive is that we created that many chances and it is something we can work on. Creating the chances and having persons in the position to score is a good sign, and we want to continue building on that,” he added. The Boyz started shakily but came into their own after 15 minutes and had excellent chances, the best of which fell to Treyvonne Reid, Nickque Daley, and Kaheem Parris. Cuba also had a couple good opportunities, but good defending kept them at bay. Early in the second half, a mix-up in defence resulted in a Cuban player being brought down in the box, and Rodan netted the spot kick to put the Cubans in front. However, after wasting a number of great opportunities in the second half, they eventually got the equaliser when the ball fell to McIntosh, who calmly slotted past the excellent Danny Eduardo in goal. “We expected a tough game. Both teams had control of the ball at different intervals. They both got chances, so the 1-1 score is a good result for both teams,” said Cuba coach Rufino Sotolongo. Jamaica’s under-17 men’s football team had to settle for a 1-1 draw with Cuba in the first of their two friendlies at Winchester Park yesterday. Ribaldo Roldan put Cuba ahead from the penalty spot eight minutes into the second half, but Ricardo McIntosh cancelled that effort with a composed finish on 70 minutes. In what was a fairly competitive contest, the young Boyz were clearly the better team over the 90 minutes and had more and better chances to win the game. Coach Andrew Edwards was pleased with the number of chances the team created but thought their decision making and finishing needs more work if they are to advance from their group of death, which consists of USA, Mexico, and El Salvador in the CONCACAF final round. “I have mixed feelings about the game,” Edwards said. “In the first period, we had problems coming out of the back. We were not smooth and fluid as the defenders were not having good connection with the midfielders to ensure a smooth transition into the attacking third. “But we created nine chances in the first period and put away zero, and that is a major cause for concern. It doesn’t matter how good an opponent is, if you are creating chances and put away these chances, you are going to increase your confidence. But our decision making was not at the level we expect,” he continued. However, he says that creating chances is a positive, and they will have to improve on that for the next game on Tuesday.last_img read more

“It is time for us to put aside our differences and work together” –…

first_imgArrival Day 2018 …President Granger joins celebrations at HighburyRegional Chairman of Region Six (East Berbice-Corentyne) David Armogan on Saturday called for Guyanese to put aside their differences and work together for the building of the nation.Regional Chairman David ArmoganHe made this call at the celebration of the 180th anniversary of the arrival of the first set of East Indian immigrants to Guyana.“That is the only way that we will be able to realise the dreams of our foreparents. That is the only way we can pay the greatest to our foreparents by developing the land that they struggled so hard to build for us. Even though they were operating under difficult circumstances, they stuck to their religion, music, food, rituals and were able to hold onto their culture. And that is important for any people because if you lose your culture, you lose it all,” the Chairman told the gathering at Highbury Village, East Berbice – the place where the first set of East Indian immigrants first set foot in British Guiana.Among those who attending the celebrations was President David Granger, who spoke to the sterling contributions East Indians made to the development of Guyana.Attending the yearly pilgrimage of Indian descendants to Plantation Highbury, East Bank Berbice, where the first batch of immigrant Indians arrived as indentured labourers on May 5, 1838, President David Granger said as a group, the descendants of East Indians made significant contributions not only to Guyana but the entire world.He said the immigrants were able to turn challenges into success; these include economic and political success. He said they have also been able to keep their cultural integrity.“They didn’t come with empty heads and empty hands; they came with cultural, customs and traditions.”“Today is a day set aside as a national holiday for the persons who arrived; Indians, Chinese, Portuguese and Africans. It also commemorates the single greatest increase in the Guyanese population. “It was an age during which the entire population was revolutionised… Over 340,000 Chinese, Indians, Europeans and Africans came to this country between 1838 and 1917. So during that period, Guyana had a huge surge in population that they were able to transform a string of plantations into the nation that we recognise to as Guyana.” The President, a historian by profession, said the plantations were transformed by the Indians, Chinese, Portuguese and Africans.While noting that all of the different groups came to Guyana by ships, the Head of State said, “We are all in this boat together and we will have to make a success of this nation that we have put together.”On May 5, 1838, the MV Whitby docked at Plantation Highbury along the Berbice River and 128 Indian natives set foot on the shores of Guyana for the first time.They were brought to replace the African slaves who had successfully fought to have slavery abolished, forcing the plantation owners to seek alternative forms of labour. However, they did not initially look at the East Indians. Although 128 Indians arrived on the Whitby, 354 arrived on May 5; a total of 239,000 were shipped to Guyana as indentured labourers. Records indicate that 75,000 went back after the indentureship period.Among those who attended the event were junior Finance Minister Jaipaul Sharma and Social Cohesion Minister, Dr George Norton.last_img read more

Gary Bowyer asks Blackburn fans to get Ewood Park ‘rocking’ for FA Cup replay with Liverpool

first_imgBlackburn Rovers manager Gary Bowyer has told talkSPORT of his demands for his side’s fans to play a pivotal part against Liverpool on Wednesday night in their bid to reach the FA Cup semi-finals.The Championship side held Brendan Rodgers’ outfit 0-0 at Anfield almost a month ago after a resilient defensive showing, and the winners of the replay going on to play Aston Villa at Wembley.Bowyer noted the impact of the Crystal Palace fans in last night’s 2-1 victory over Manchester City at Selhurst Park, and believes a similar level of support and euphoria is required for his side to progress.“Our fans are going to have to play a massive part,” said the 43-year-old.“We’re expecting a full house at Ewood Park for the first time in a long time and we want them to make the place rocking. Hopefully our fans can play a massive role for us tomorrow.”Liverpool have suffered two damaging defeats in a row to Manchester United and Arsenal and have been caught up in the Raheem Sterling transfer saga, but Bowyer denied Wednesday’s game arrives at a good time to face the Reds.The Rovers boss said: “It was only two games ago they were being touted as the best time in the Premier League, and rightly so – it’s only been two defeats.“It’s going to be a hell of a challenge. We thoroughly enjoyed the occasion last time and we’ve earned the right for a replay.”last_img read more

Poly’s Green appears back on track

first_img The 55 final featured a matchup between the state’s top three sprinters in the 100 last season with Collins, Union City Logan senior Kristina Davis and San Jose Valley Christian’s Khrystal Carter. San Jose Pleasant junior Jeneba Tarmoh, however, was the surprise winner in 6.89. Davis and Carter finished second and third in 7.04 and 7.10, respectively. Collins was fourth in 7.21. There was little concern, however, for Collins who took four months off from training after a long season that continued into last August. Collins also wasn’t particularly enthused to competing on the 160-yard banked wooden oval on loan from the now defunct L.A. Invitational that has not been held since 2003 after a 43-year run because of a lack of a title sponsor. “This is just like a workout,” Collins said. “I’m tired. It doesn’t mean much to be running your best here. I’ll be ready when it counts.” In the college-open competition, Bennie Robinson, a 2000 Poly High graduate who competed at Cerritos and Long Beach City Colleges, won the 55 in 6.33 on three weeks of training in his return from a two-year layoff. In the women’s invitational 55 meters, USC sophomore Carol Rodriguez, formerly of Wilson, finished third in 7.05 and Trojan teammate Whitney Graham was fifth in 7.46. Downey graduate Rolando Felizola won the open long jump at 22-7. — Kirby Lee BOYS BASKETBALL Mary Star 63, Cathedral 45 Marc Saavedra had 22 points, five assists and four rebounds as the Stars (10-9, 3-0) topped the Phantoms (9-11, 2-1) in a battle for first place in the Camino Real League.

Green was hoping to challenge for a Southern Section Division I 100-meter title last spring when he injured his quadriceps in the Arcadia Invitational in April. He missed more than two months of training because of the injury, returning to run on the Jackrabbits’ state runner-up 400-meter relay in June on three weeks of training. Green showed glimpses of his potential in the IAAF World Youth Championships in Morocco where he ran the opening 100-meter leg of the U.S. gold-medal winning sprint medley relay and ran a career-best 10.66 in the 100 semifinals. “I am just glad that I had a chance to run later on in the summer,” Green said. Monday’s meet was just the start of an anticipated long season for Collins, the defending state champion in the 100 and 300 meter hurdles. Collins, an IAAF gold medalist in the 400 hurdles and sprint medley relay, failed to come away with an individual win on Monday but there was little concern. Collins finished second in the 500 yards in 1:11.10, third in the 55 hurdles and fourth in the 55. In all, Collins ran seven races with three heats of the 55, two in the 55 hurdles, the 500 yards and on Wilson’s 4×440-yard relay. center_img FRESNO — Isaiah Green insists he doesn’t have any points to prove. The Poly High junior is just glad to be back competing. However, Green, who missed most of his sophomore season after tearing a quadriceps muscle, certainly made an impression after winning the 55 meters in 6.47 seconds in the inaugural Run for the Dream indoor track and field meet at Fresno State’s Save Mart Center on Monday. Green, along with Myra Hasson of Gardena, and Poly seniors Shana Woods and Nick Armstrong, were other area winners in Monday’s meet. last_img read more
