Guyana Jaguars Super50 chances good, says Harper

first_imgWITH just five days before the 2017 NAGICO Regional Super50 tournament bowls off, former Demerara Cricket Club (DCC) and Guyana middle-order batsman and head coach, Mark Harper, believes that the Guyana Jaguars have an excellent chance of winning the coveted trophy.The 59-year-old Harper, who played the last of his 42 First-Class and 13 Regional Limited Overs matches in 1991, is of the opinion that the team’s all-round ability will be a huge positive for the side.Mark Harper“I think Guyana have a good chance. When you look at the squad, we have a good all-round squad, a squad with good experienced players, who have been playing the game for some time now,” Harper pointed out.The Guyana Jaguars have been labelled as the pre-tournament favourites, but that label means nothing unless it can be backed by strong performances.However, the former Bermuda national coach pointed out that execution will be the key for any strong performances.“In limited overs cricket or any form of cricket you have to bat well, but having said that the team’s bowling department is well equipped to handle any situation.“Beaton (Ronsford) is back, and he will add a bit of pace, then there is Barnwell (Christopher), Reifer (Raymon) and Wintz (Paul), but our spinners … Guyana have always produced quality spinners, and with Bishoo (Devendra), Permaul (Veerasammy) and Jacobs (Steven), our bowling department is well equipped,” Harper added.Meanwhile, Harper expressed his surprise at the omission of middle-order batsman Vishaul Singh from the touring squad.“I’m surprised he is not in the squad. He is a quality player,” Harper said.Singh, left-arm spinner Gudakesh Motie, fast bowler Romario Shepherd, opening batsman Kevon Boodie and all-rounder Royston Crandon were all omitted. The five players were part of the squad last year.The squad includes seven players who have represented the regional side in Tests, One Day Internationals (ODIs) and Twenty20s.The left-handed Leon Johnson is once again at the helm, and he will have a bunch of experienced players to call on, among them is middle-order batting stalwart Shivnarine Chanderpaul.When the action bowls off, the Guyanese will be aiming for a 10th Regional 50-over title, the last of which was achieved in 2005 when they defeated Barbados in near darkness in the final of the KFC Cup at the GCC ground, Bourda.Prior to that, Guyana reigned supreme in 1980, 1983, 1985, 1993, 1995, 1998, 2001 and 2003.The Guyana Jaguars will do battle in Group B of the Super50 which runs from January 24 to February 18 in Antigua and Barbados.Ronsford BeatonGroup B comprises last year losing finalists Barbados Pride, Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners, Jamaica Scorpions, Guyana Jaguars and ICC Americas.Meanwhile, title-holders Trinidad & Tobago Red Force, Leeward Islands Hurricanes, Windward Islands Volcanoes, the West Indies U-19s, and visiting English County Kent Spitfires have been installed in Group A.The Guyana Jaguars squad reads: Leon Johnson (captain), Veerasammy Permaul (vice-captain), Anthony Bramble (wkp.), Shimron Hetmyer, Shivnarine Chanderpaul, Christopher Barnwell, Raymon Reifer, Rajendra Chandrika, Steven Jacobs, Assad Fudadin, Devendra Bishoo, Ronsford Beaton, Paul Wintz and Jonathan Foo.Management Staff: Esaun Crandon (head coach), Rayon Griffith (assistant coach) and Ernesto Gonzalez (physiotherapist). … Surprised at Vishaul Singh’s omissionlast_img read more

New Sport Minister calls for end to  ‘ad hoc’ approach to the sector

first_img..vows to transform sports for the benefit of all By Rawle Toney MINISTER of Culture, Youth and Sport, Charles Ramson Jr called the approach to sports in Guyana “ad hoc”, while noting that for the sector to see any growth, things will have to change so there can also be sustainable for the development of the country’s athlete. Ramson is also hoping to use his far-reaching network to help transform the sports sector. Ransom took his Oath of Office from President Dr Irfaan Ali, and will serve as the Minister of Culture Youth and Sport in the People’s Progressive Party/Civic Administration.Speaking to the media at the Author Chung Conference Centre after being sworn-in, the 36-year-old said operating sport in an ad hoc manner will do the sector more harm than good. “Right now sport is very disorganised,” Ramson reasoned, while firmly stating that “we cannot have sport function in a way where it is operating in an ad hoc manner; at one time somebody thinks this is a good idea or one group thinks this is a good idea.”“In order to create a sustainable sport development programme that is a sport economy as well, because sport is a business too, we need a system that is sustainable and that can only be done through organized stakeholders and people that are connected to the overall development trajectory of the country,” the Sport Minister said. Ramson was adamant in stating that “sport is more than just hobbies and staying fit; it is far bigger than that. It is one of the largest sectors in the world and it could very well be transformational for the country as well, by being able to draw on our human capital and our talents as young people.”Having graduated with a Master’s of Science degree in Oil and Gas Engineering from the University of Aberdeen in Scotland, Ramson, who is an Attorney-At-Law, was asked about being in a sector that is the total opposite of his area of expertise.In response, the avid cricket and basketball fan explained “the President recognises that over 60% of the population of Guyana is below the age of 35. For the last five years, this country has had a lack of strong youth leadership and an absence of sport leadership.”“The President, as well as the party, also believes that all three areas require strong leadership. It requires us to get organized so that we could help to transform the country and also to unify the country, and it is a critical component of who we are as a people and part of the healing process,” Ramson reasoned.According to Ramson, “Most of you know that I have a very strong sports background even though I was doing Oil and Gas and was speaking regularly on Oil and Gas subjects, I have always been doing sports-related issues and sports-related programmes. ”The Minister said as far as providing the young leadership in Guyana for which there is a strong voice, both the President and the party felt that he would better serve in the area of Culture, Youth and Sport. Meanwhile, Ramson said he has already hit the ground running and will meet with key personnel in the sector and other stakeholders.last_img read more

Fast start doesn’t translate to success as UW falters late

first_imgANN ARBOR, Mich. — In a hostile environment, coming in as the underdog, with virtually every major college football expert and publication raving about the upcoming opponent, there’s really one main thing that a football team can do to turn the tables in its favor: start out strong.If the team that nobody expects to put up any fight comes out in the first quarter and the first half looking like the team that everyone figures to win easily, that’s a huge advantage for the underdog. Especially on the road, where the crowd can be taken right out of the game with such an effort.The Wisconsin football team did exactly that Saturday, looking very much deserving of an AP ranking name and quieting the 111,058 Michigan fans on hand.Well, for a quarter and a half, at least. The Badgers can leave Ann Arbor with pride in turning some heads across the country — tied 10-all at halftime against the No. 6 Wolverines — but it almost hurts worse that UW actually gave itself a chance to pull the stunning upset, rather than getting smoked like everybody expected.Things started swimmingly for the unranked Badgers, as a tip ball landed in the arms of UW cornerback Allen Langford. Not the prettiest of interceptions, but it counted, and was promptly converted into a 7-0 lead when John Stocco drove Wisconsin’s struggling offense 60 yards in five plays.Besides that, in the first quarter, the UW running game looked better than that of Michigan, Stocco looked as relaxed and poised as he had all year, and the Badgers defense kept the clamps on big-play threat Mario Manningham, whose muff led to that Langford pick.The more than 111,000 people in the stands started to get antsy. Everything seemed to go Wisconsin’s way in the early goings.Well, the wheels didn’t completely fall off for the visiting Badgers until after the break, but the game’s momentum began to shift in the second quarter. First, Manningham made up for his early blunder by beating Langford on a 24-yard touchdown grab in the end zone, knotting the game at 7-all.Then after a well-constructed 10-play, 66-yard drive resulting in a Taylor Mehlhaff field goal, Wisconsin committed their worst miscue of the game — effectively letting the Wolverines (and their home crowd) right back in the contest. Zach Hampton’s fumble of a punt return led to three Michigan points going into the locker rooms and set the stage for the Badgers’ devastatingly-poor second half.Michigan got another long touchdown to Manningham, a 5-yard TD dash by Mike Hart, and another field goal on 173 offensive yards, jumping out to a 27-10 lead — all before the Badgers earned their initial first down of the second half.The Wolverine offense put on a show, and it came at the expense at the UW defense that never seemed to get a chance to catch its breath. In the third quarter, Stocco did not complete a pass and the Badgers running game — a focal point in Wisconsin’s game-plan coming into the match-up — mustered just 13 yards, not good enough to move the chains even once. The frustration continued into the final quarter, with no first downs coming until under four minutes remaining in the game.Not the way you want to finish, and though Stocco did lead the UW offense to some more yards in garbage time, it was too late to undo the damage done. Six-straight three-and-outs after halftime, as UW head coach Bret Bielema attested, just isn’t going to get it done against such a talented Michigan team.”They have a lot of good players, and good players with good coaches just line up and do what they do best,” Bielema said. “That’s what they were able to do for four quarters and something we need to do with more consistency.”Manningham, who struggled early in his first minutes since scoring three touchdowns against Notre Dame the previous week, added greatly to Wisconsin’s demise late in the game with seven catches for 113 yards and a pair of scores.”We tried to warn our kids and put ourselves in a positive situation, but he was able to execute,” Bielema said.If the Badgers had maintained their first-half play into that third quarter, perhaps the outcome would have been different.”You can’t argue with the way we started,” Bielema said. “It’s going to be something that we can build upon, but I didn’t like the third quarter.”last_img read more

Courtney Brosnan makes 6 saves in Syracuse women’s soccer’s 1-1 tie against Notre Dame

first_img Published on September 18, 2016 at 6:46 pm Contact Matt: Facebook Twitter Google+ Monica Flores sent a corner kick flying into the box. Bodies from both sides flew toward the ball, but above everyone else, Syracuse goalie Courtney Brosnan rose up and punched it away.The ball sailed outward, but was recovered by Notre Dame. Another shot attempt led to a scrum around the left goal post and Brosnan aggressively dove to gobble up the ball.In the 1-1 draw against the No. 20 Fighting Irish (5-1-3, 0-0-1 Atlantic Coast) at SU Soccer Stadium on Sunday, the Orange (7-1-2, 0-0-1) was outshot for the first time all season. Brosnan saw 16 shots come her way. The previous high against Syracuse this season was Buffalo’s 11 and the Orange managed to shut out the Bulls. Brosnan came away with six saves and was the backbone of the Syracuse defense.“I’ve said time and time again that Courtney is one of the best in the ACC,” Syracuse head coach Phil Wheddon said. “I think that was very clear today.”In only the second minute, Brosnan found herself on the ground after diving back to deflect a shot up and over the crossbar.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNotre Dame controlled the beginning of the first half and was relentless on the attack. After 22 minutes the Fighting Irish had generated five shots and four corner kicks, keeping Brosnan constantly on her toes.“I thought they dominated for the first 20 minutes of the game,” Wheddon said. “It’s important to have a big-time goalkeeper.”The Orange began to settle down and find its rhythm after Notre Dame’s fifth shot attempt. SU began to generate some offense and ease the pressure on Brosnan. An Eva Gordon goal in the 33rd minute put the Orange up 1-0.Once the second half got underway, Brosnan saw a flurry of shots come her way, leaving her diving in every direction.Her one slip up came in the 53rd minute. A scrum in front of the goal left Notre Dame’s Taylor Klawunder wide open on the right side of the goal and she eased a header off a corner into the back left side, past Brosnan.“Courtney was a bit unlucky,” midfielder Carolin Bader said. “She held us in the game.”With the game locked at one, Brosnan’s responsibilities went beyond just making saves. After her save on Flores’ shot, Brosnan rose to her feet and punted the ball down the field to teammate Stephanie Skilton.Brosnan had been trying to avoid taking punts and goal kicks because of a nagging right knee injury — center backs Jessica Vigna and Taylor Bennett had been taking the goal kicks instead. But in the 82nd minute on Sunday, the pace of the 1-1 game took over and Brosnan launched a ball past the midfield line to try to generate offense.She took a season-high six goal kicks, something Wheddon did not expect, in an attempt to help Syracuse’s offense get up the field.When teammates Alana O’Neill and Sydney Brackett were wandering around the box trying to find opponents to mark before a corner kick, Brosnan yelled their names, positioned them and pointed back to her head coach, who had been trying and failing to get O’Neill’s and Brackett’s attention to get them in the right spot.Notre Dame continued its pressure on goal throughout the rest of the game and Brosnan continued to stifle the UND attack with diving saves.Brosnan walked off the field after the game, her jersey littered with grass stains and turf filling her hair.“The competition is amazing and I love facing this big competition,” Brosnan said. “It gets me amped up to make big-time saves.” Commentslast_img read more

Having this investigators’ unit in place will allow us to address issues from the roots,”Further IFSI integrity directives saw the IOC and  EUROPOL sign a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) that will establish a mutual cooperation framework between the two bodies – facilitate the exchange of expertise, information and deeper all-round cooperation fighting against manipulation of competitions and related organised crime.Europol’s Deputy Executive Director, Wil van Gemert, said: “Corruption in sports is a global criminal phenomenon perpetrated by organised crime groups operating cross-border and often involved in other crimes. Working closely together in coalition with key partners, like the IOC, is crucial in the fight against corruption in sports.

Wayne Rooney: I was a bit emotional out there… I’m happy it’s done

first_imgEngland captain Wayne Rooney lashed home a late penalty against Switzerland to become his country’s record goalscorer with 50 goals.The Manchester United striker began the international break one goal short of Sir Bobby Charlton’s haul of 49, but two spotkicks – the first against San Marino, the second under the Wembley floodlights – propelled him to the top of the leaderboard.Charlton’s record had stood for 45 years.”I was a bit emotional out there and it’s something to be extremely proud of. I’m happy it’s done and hopefully I can kick on from here and concentrate on the team and our success in the future,” Rooney told ITV Sport.”I knew myself it was a big moment for me and I just picked my corner and put my boot through it to get as much power as possible and make it hard for the keeper. He got a touch but thankfully it had too much power.”I went through a spell around 2008 when I didn’t score for two years for England, and since Roy’s (manager Roy Hodgson) come in I’ve scored a lot of goals and I’m grateful to Roy for letting me play with the freedom that I enjoy.” Rooney’s remarkable journey to a half-century of international goals began in September 2003 against Macedonia and concluded in the 2-0 victory over Switzerland that continued England’s perfect record in Euro 2016 qualifying Group E.WAYNE ROONEY’S ENGLAND GOALS1) Macedonia 1 England 2, European Championship qualifier, September 6, 20032) England 2 Liechtenstein 0, European Championship qualifier, September 10, 2003 3) England 2 Denmark 3, friendly, November 16, 20034 & 5) England 6 Iceland 1, FA Summer Tournament, June 5, 20046 & 7) England 3 Switzerland 0, European Championship finals, June 17, 20048 & 9) England 4 Croatia 2, European Championship finals, June 21, 200410) Denmark 4 England 1, friendly, August 17, 2005 11) England 3 Argentina 2, friendly, November 12, 200512) Netherlands 1 England 1, friendly, November 15, 200613) England 3 Estonia 0, European Championship qualifier, October 13, 200714) Russia 2 England 1, European Championship qualifier, October 17, 200715) Croatia 1 England 4, World Cup qualifier, September 10, 2008 16 & 17) England 5 Kazakhstan 1, World Cup qualifier, October 11, 200818 & 19) Belarus 1 England 3, World Cup qualifier, October 15, 200820 & 21) England 4 Slovakia 0, friendly, March 28, 200922) Kazakhstan 0 England 4, World Cup qualifier, June 6, 200923 & 24) England 6 Andorra 0, World Cup qualifier, June 10, 2009 25 & 26) England 5 Croatia 1, World Cup qualifier, September 9, 200927) Switzerland 1 England 3, European Championship qualifier, September 7, 201028 & 29) Bulgaria 0 England 3, European Championship qualifier, September 2, 201130) Ukraine 0 England 1, European Championship finals, June 19, 201231 & 32) England 5 San Marino 0, World Cup qualifier, October 12, 2012 33) Poland 1 England 1, World Cup qualifier, October 17, 201234) England 2 Brazil 1, friendly, February 6, 201335) San Marino 0 England 8, World Cup qualifier, March 22, 201336) Montenegro 1 England 1, World Cup qualifier, March 26, 201337) Brazil 2 England 2, friendly, June 2, 201338) England 4 Montenegro 1, World Cup qualifier, October 11, 201339) England 2 Poland 0, World Cup qualifier, October 15, 201340) England 2 Ecuador 2, friendly, June 4, 201441) England 1 Uruguay 2, World Cup finals, June 19, 201442) England 1 Norway 0, friendly, September 3, 201443) England 5 San Marino 0, European Championship qualifier, October 9, 201444) Estonia 0 England 2, European Championship qualifier, October 12, 201445) England 3 Slovenia 1, European Championship qualifier, November 15, 201446) Scotland 1 England 3, friendly, November 18, 201447) England 4 Lithuania 0, European Championship qualifier, March 27, 201548) Slovenia 2 England 3, European Championship qualifier, June 14, 201549) San Marino 0 England 6, European Championship qualifier, September 5, 201550) England 2 Switzerland 0, European Championship qualifier, September 8, 2015–Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @Joy997FM.

Clippers, Doc Rivers making the most of trip to China

first_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error It’s been an interesting week for the Clippers and coach Doc Rivers in China.Austin Rivers and Chris Paul suffered injuries in practices Friday and Saturday, the Clippers lost to the Charlotte Hornets in Shenzhen on Saturday and Doc Rivers has had to read all about Klay Thompson’s response to a rather innocent Rivers quote.But the team has bonded, and that’s big.“It’s been great,” Rivers said in a telephone interview late Monday night from Shanghai, where the Clippers will again play the Hornets at 5 a.m. Wednesday (on NBATV). “I would say that’s been the biggest positive of the whole thing, that part right there.” Rivers said from the long flight over, to the bus rides for the team’s many functions, to a trip to a Buddhist temple, to a ping pong table in the meal room, all have had played a part in the bonding experience.“The Charlotte guys were upset, you know, like, ‘Geez, we don’t have a ping pong table in our room,’” Rivers said, laughing. “But it’s been great. They’ve had tournaments, everybody’s watching everybody play.”Rivers had let reporters know in so many words that he wasn’t crazy about this trip, an eight-day grind in the middle of the team preparing for the regular season, which opens Oct. 28 at Sacramento.Yet he’s glad it happened.“I don’t think anyone wants to pack their stuff and go anywhere during training camp,” he said. “But of all the years to pick a year to go, this was the perfect year. It was just fate. It was perfect. Because we have nine new players, really 10, because Austin came late in the year, you know what I mean?center_img “And so for them to go into camp together, go under different conditions, travel together, it kind of shortens that learning curve mostly.“Now, as far as on the court, we still have a long way to go. You can’t shorten that, but the closer you become as a group, the easier that becomes and I think this trip has really helped in that regard.”Injury updatePaul sustained a fractured left index finger Saturday. Rivers said it’s a small fracture, there are no tendons involved and it’s not on his shooting hand.Austin Rivers took an inadvertent elbow to the mouth while going up for a blocked shot Friday and spent the rest of the day in a dental chair. He had one tooth knocked out and three pushed back, Doc Rivers said.Neither played Saturday, but both practiced Monday and Rivers immediately took a charge.“Probably not the smartest thing to do when you have stitches in your mouth,” Doc Rivers said, “but he took it anyway and it was pretty cool. The guys got fired up.”Both are expected to play Wednesday.Rivers vs. ThompsonGolden State’s Thompson on Friday responded to a quote from Rivers, who told that a team needs some luck to advance in the Western Conference playoffs.“Look at Golden State, they didn’t have to play us or the Spurs,” Rivers said.Thompson, who helped the Warriors win the title this past season, called Rivers’ remarks “bitter” in a story on and went on to note how the Clippers lost to Houston after leading 3-1 in the conference semifinals, and so on.“I was really disappointed in them because that’s not how I said it,” Rivers said. “I was really surprised at how sensitive they are, but I’m giving Klay the benefit of the doubt. I’m sure it was worded wrong in the question that was asked to him. I basically say it and I say it all the time. During the conversation, I said of my (Boston Celtics) team in 2008, you’ve gotta have some luck, things have to go your way. You need all that.“But I respect Golden State a hundred percent. But I was surprised at how quickly they jumped on it. To each his own.”last_img read more
