Portmore cautious ahead of big clash with MoBay United

first_img Consistency Former champions Montego Bay United will be hoping to continue in the form with which they ended the first round when they play away to Portmore United today in the Red Stripe Premier League. The most consistent team in the league over the past two seasons has gone to the finals in both years. They lost their opening match handsomely at home to Portmore United, but have been unbeaten since. Montego Bay’s good run was guided by their American coach, Tim Hankinson, who gave up the post right after the team’s final round-one game, a 3-0 win over Rivoli United. Today, according to club owner Orville Powell, the players will take orders from Dillon Thelwell, Locksley Reid and Norman Foster. This arrangement, Powell said, is a temporary one until a permanent coach is found. Today’s Games – 8:40 p.m.: Cavalier vs Tivoli Gardens at Stadium East – 3 p.m.: Boys’ Town vs Harbour View at Barbican Stadium – 5 p.m.: Humble Lion vs Reno at Effortville Community Centre – 3 p.m.: Portmore United vs Montego Bay United at Juici Park – 3 p.m.: UWI FC vs Arnett Gardens at UWI Bowl, Mona – 3 p.m.: Waterhouse vs Rivoli United at Drewsland Stadium Tomorrow’s game Portmore United, on the other hand, is hoping that consistency will get them through. “We are not trying to set unrealistic expectations. Montego Bay United are on a good run so one cannot look past that, but as I always say, we just need to be consistent and the rest will take care of itself,” Portmore United’s co-coach, Jeffrey Hewitt, told The Sunday Gleaner. The promoted team, while they did not have the form of Montego Bay United, finished the round in second position. This is close enough to where they wanted to be. “In terms of where we wanted to be at the end of the first round, we are somewhat there. We have no major injuries; just one or two niggles which will be sorted out, so that is a good thing. The spirit is high, (there is) a lot of confidence in the team,” Hewitt explained. The coach has good reason to feel optimistic as former Calabar High School star, Jovan East, found his scoring boots and has been firing them to victories. East, Hewitt said, missed a part of the preseason, which resulted in him being introduced late. While East has been firing for Portmore United, Montego Bay United will be looking to the attacking trio of Dino Williams, Owayne Gordon and Allan Ottey. At Barbican, Boys’ Town will be aiming to add another prized scalp to their collection when they host the inconsistent Harbour View, while Humble Lion will be hoping to put last week’s 2-1 loss to Waterhouse behind them by inflicting another defeat on the sliding Reno. UWI FC took care of Tivoli Gardens, 5-2, last week and are aiming at doing the same to their neighbours when they host defending champions Arnett Gardens, who are being kept afloat by the goalscoring run of Kemal Malcolm. Waterhouse recorded their third victory last week, their second under Anthony Patrick, and home advantage should help their cause when Rivoli United visit this afternoon. On Monday night, the resurgent Cavalier will be hoping to record one more home victory when they host Tivoli Gardens, who will be looking to restore lost pride.

Pink ball Tests can boost region – Walsh

first_imgBRISBANE, Australia (CMC): West Indies legend Courtney Walsh believes the pink ball is the future of Test cricket and could work wonders in the Caribbean. The Jamaica icon is with the West Indies team as ‘selector on tour’ for the upcoming three-Test series starting here next week and caught a glimpse of the first Test under lights between Australia and New Zealand at the Adelaide Oval last week. “I was very impressed with the Test under lights. It looked like a wonderful occasion,” said Walsh, who grabbed a West Indies record 519 wickets in 132 Tests. “I would love to see that happen in the West Indies. For us, because of the work and the economy, we might get more support to come and watch cricket at night. I’d love to see them give it a try.” None of the Windies upcoming Tests against the Aussies for the Frank Worrell Trophy will be played under lights, however. The opening game is set for the Blundstone Arena in Hobart, while the second Test is scheduled for the MCG in Melbourne and will see West Indies playing their first Boxing Day Test in more than a decade. Sydney’s famous Sydney Cricket Ground will host the third and final Test in the New Year. Australia won the historic game at Adelaide, sneaking home by three wickets in a low-scoring contest that finished within three days, and Walsh said he was impressed with the encouragement given to bowlers. “I’m just happy to see what’s happening with the pink ball. It was good to see a contest between bat and ball that’s a little bit more even, not just a flat placid wicket where the batsman dominates and the bowlers have to toil hard,” Walsh said. “There was something for the bowlers in every session. For me, that’s a good even contest. It’s good to see they had something to do.” Walsh is rated as one of the greatest cricketers of all time and is a member of the ICC Cricket Hall of Fame. In an illustrious career, the former Test captain also took 227 wickets in 205 one-dayers in a career spanning from 1984 to 2001.last_img read more

Follow the Trace: Sports still alive and well

first_imgThe year 2015 will long be remembered as the year when international sports suffered significant damage to its reputation. The massive corruption scandal engulfing the world’s most popular sport has seen several high-ranking officials of the governing body of football, including former president Joseph ‘Sepp’ Blatter and several of his former vice-presidents, already charged and tarnished. A similar fate seems to have befallen the world governing body of track and field, the IAAF, with its immediate past president Lamine Diack and other functionaries currently under investigation after allegations of corruption. Add to that the not unrelated issue of the widespread doping facing the sport generally, and specifically the significant allegations that athletics powerhouse Russia has been practising widespread state-sponsored doping. On the face of it, at least two of the world’s major sports are in critical but stable condition and fighting for dear life. Despite the sensational appeal of these developments, I think the sports of football and athletics are as strong and as relevant as at anytime in their history. The fact of the matter is that these scandals, for what they are worth, are at the administrative level of the sports, and except for the doping component, these issues have had no real negative effects on the integrity and the specific functionality of the sports themselves. Not important to fans The case could even be made that despite the confirmation of prevalent drug use in the sport of athletics, track and field is still very alive and well. Certainly, at the level of the Olympic Games and the World Championships, these events are no lesser spectacles than they were before. Simply seeing the world’s best competing against each other is still an attractive proposition for most sports fans. When, for example, Justin Gatlin faced off with Usain Bolt for the 100-metre World title in Beijing, it still was one of the most, if not the most, anticipated and well-watched sprint races in the modern history of the sport, despite Gatlin’s conspicuous history of drug use. Similarly, the scandals at the boardroom level of world football have in no way affected the attractiveness of the game itself. The UEFA Champions League, the Barclays Premier League, the Spanish La Liga and all the other major leagues of Europe are still appealing to the thousands and thousands of people who fill the stadia in support of their favourite teams, and this is in addition to the millions who religiously tune in across the world to indulge in the passion of the world’s simplest yet most popular sport. When the Olympics come around in the summer of 2016, no one will even remember the name Lamine Diack and what he might or might not have done. When the World Cup Finals come around in 2018, very few people, if any, will remember or care to remember the name ‘Sepp’ Blatter; we will all be submerged in another monthlong orgy of football. Track and field alive While the allegations of corruption and doping scandals and all the intricate details are good for news, and make for great ‘bar talk’ and verandah discussions, I think their importance to the average sports fan is highly overrated. We are more interested in the fortunes of our favourite teams, whether it be Liverpool, or Manchester United or Chelsea or Arsenal, or Barcelona or Real Madrid, and what they do week in week out on the football pitch than if ‘Sepp’ Blatter did or did not make a nefarious payment to Michel Platini. At the end of the day, sports is alive and well. Despite the moral and ethical dilemma at the administrative level of sports, the sports themselves are still very much intact and genuinely mean a lot to millions of passionate fans all around the world.last_img read more

Day looking to put Rio nightmare behind her

first_imgPARIS, France: The season started well for Christine Day, but after a second-place finish at the National Senior Championships, she failed to her good early form in Rio de Janeiro. Day dropped out in the semi-finals at the Olympics and, to add to her disappointment, she was left off the team for the 4×400 metres final after running the opening leg in the preliminary round. Today at the Paris Diamond League, Day is hoping for a better race execution when she competes in the one-lap event. “Tomorrow, I just want to execute well by putting a good race together. I was very disappointed in my performance at the Olympics despite being in the best shape of my life,” Day said in Paris yesterday. She wants to put that Olympic Games disappointment quickly behind her with a big run today. “I have put that behind me already and it is about the future, and if you want to be a champion, you just have to move on, and I am really motivated to do well,” she added. Day has no regrets about changing camp last year after switching from Stephen Francis’ MVP to Bertland Cameron’s Blazers. “I have no regrets. The past is the past and, in life, you just have to move on. Cameron is a great coach and the first year with him was a feeling-out process and now (that) he knows my weaknesses and strengths. I am going for great things next year,” Day said. “I know things will be better. You just have to believe in God because he granted me this talent and gave me the gift to run and I trust in Him and believe in His words as it wasn’t man who gave me the talent, and no matter what, I will always be Christine Day,” she concluded.last_img read more
