A Star shines at the Park

first_imgSORRENTINO’S STAR, ridden by outgoing champ-ion jockey Dane Nelson for 14-time champion trainer Philip Feanny upstaged her eight opponents to win race No. 2 in the Supreme Ventures two-year-old series, the $3.6 million Pick 3 Super Challenge Trophy over 1400 metres, at Caymanas Park yesterday.Running at odds of 4-1, SORRENTINO’S STAR, a maiden at the start, made amends for her close fourth to DREAMLINER in the October 19 Cash Pot ‘Only One For Me’ Trophy over 1200 metres (race one in the series), turning the tables on Wayne DaCosta’s DREAMLINER, who could only manage fourth over the longer distance of the PIck 3 Challenge.SORRENTINO’S STAR raced close up on the rails as the previously unbeaten ZUGULU, the 6-5 favourite, led comfortably from SIMPY THE BEST (5-2) leaving the half mile. However, ZUGULU, with Shane Ellis aboard, was joined by the smooth running SORRENTINO’S STAR on the outside entering the straight. He quickly disposed of ZUGULU to win by 13/4 lengths from the late-closing FUTURE KING (3-1) widest of all with top apprentice Linton Steadman aboard.A bay filly by Sorrentino out of the Touch Gold mare Santa Baby, SORRENTINO’S STAR was notching her first win on this her fourth start. She is owned and bred by Robert Dabdoub.Nelson, who recently returned home following a stint at Woodbine racetrack in Toronto, Canada, said he couldn’t believe that SORRENTINO’S STAR was a maiden.”I had been working her in the mornings in preparation for the races and she responded well,” said the three-time champion jockey. “The trainer instructed me to break her sharply and stay as close to the pace as possible She’s a nice filly and I’m looking forward to riding her again on Boxing Day,” added Nelson, who will ride the American horse UPPA TUNE in next Saturday’s $13.5 million SVL Diamond Mile.Meanwhile, Melissa Ward, riding 9-2 chance FIFTYONE-STORM in the eighth race, became the first of the three female apprentices who graduated from the Jockeys’ School on September 26 to ride a winner against senior jockeys. And former champion jockey Wesley ‘Callaloo’ Henry high-lighted the 11-race programme with a fabulous four-timer, this on a day when the Michael Beecham-trained SIR BUDGET scored a 52-1 upset in the ninth race over the straight, then had to survive a stewards’ inquiry and objection.last_img read more

Spotlight on ISSA netball – Top teams clash in finals at Leila Robinson Courts

first_imgThe best of local schoolgirls netball will be on show at the Leila Robinson Courts today. For the first time ever, both the rural and urban Inter-secondary School Sports Association (ISSA) finals will be played at the same venue. Action will begin at 11 a.m. – a the third-place play-off match between Manchester High and Holmwood Technical. One hour later, at noon, there will be three third-place matches for junior and senior teams from both rural and urban schools. The first of four finals will begin at 1 p.m. In a repeat of last year’s final, defending champions Denbigh High will take on Knox College in the rural junior final. This will be followed by the urban junior final at 2 p.m. between many-time winners Queen’s School and newcomers Gaynstead High. At 3 p.m., Holmwood Technical will take on first-time finalists Titchfield High in the rural senior final. Holmwood, who have reached their tenth consecutive final, will be gunning for their ninth overall title, but will be wary of a hungry Titchfield team. Carlene Graham-Powell, coach of defending champions Holmwood, is confident her team will retain their title. “The team did not play as expected in the semi-finals, as most of them were playing at this stage for the first time. However, since that game, we have gone back to the drawing board and had a nice team meeting with them, and we are very confident of victory,” said Graham Powell. In the urban final, which begins at 4 p.m., St Hugh’s will be hoping to avenge their second-round defeat by three goals to Camperdown High, the only unbeaten team in the Corporate Area. Kadi-Ann Dehaney, who was a part of the National Senior team to the Netball World Cup in Australia in mid-year, will carry the hopes of St Hugh’s. Coach of St Hugh’s, Roy Price, is confident they will win today. “We lost to Camperdown earlier, and they are a strong and well-coached team, but we know what we did wrong, and we have fixed those problems and we are hoping to win this time around,” said coach Price.last_img read more

Arnett plan to keep Waterhouse down

first_imgReigning Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) champions, Arnett Gardens FC, are planning to keep Waterhouse on the canvas when both teams meet in the secondpreliminary stage at Waterhouse Stadium tomorrow.Arnett are currently in third position on 32 points, while Waterhouse are at the bottom on 15 points after 18 games in the 12-team league.With a gap of 17 points, Arnett Gardens have no intention of giving Waterhouse a chance to crawl up from last position.As far as the man in charge of the ‘Junglists’ is concerned, it is simply a case of, ‘when a man is down, keep him down’.”We will try to keep them down as they are a dangerous team,” coach of Arnett Gardens, Jerome ‘Jerry’ Waite told The Gleaner at the RSPL weekly press conference at Red Stripe last Thursday.”In previous games, Waterhouse dominated Arnett. We beat them in the first round and we are looking forward to continue this on Sunday,” added Waite, who guided Arnett to three national titles.Arnett will be without hard-tackling midfielder Renae Lloyd, as well as Damari Deacon due to red cards issued in their encounter against Tivoli Gardens two weeks ago, but Waite remains confident that the team will leave Drewsland with a positive result.”Lloyd will be a loss, but if you notice this season started without Renae Lloyd, the other player (Jason Moore), who will fill the slot had been doing well before Lloyd returned to the team,” the veteran coach noted before sharing his anticipation of the game.”Yes, you always have to look forward to a clash of this magnitude, despite where the teams are in the standings. And, it is always a fierce rivalry. We will not underestimate Waterhouse, although they are having a bad season, so far,” Waite maintained.”In their last game, they scored four goals but gave up the same, so there are loopholes in their defensive system, which we aim to exploit. We (Arnett) have won three games in a row and are aiming at four straight,” he concluded.last_img read more

England pull off biggest WT20 run chase

first_imgMUMBAI, India (AP):England pulled off their greatest World Twenty20 victory yesterday, beating South Africa by two wickets in the highest-ever run chase in the tournament’s history.Joe Root smashed 83 off 44 balls as England survived a very late scare to march to 230-8 in 19.4 overs after South Africa had posted 229-4 on the back of half-centuries from Hashim Amla, JP Duminy, and Quinton de Kock.England openers Jason Roy and Alex Hales had provided a roller-coaster start of 48 runs off just 15 deliveries, and Root motored along the chase by hitting six fours and four sixes against wayward South African bowling.”It’s just nice to contribute to a game of cricket,” Root said. “Be sensible, play smart cricket … and the guys were so calm under pressure.”England’s remarkable performance in the Group One match puts them only second behind West Indies’ highest-ever successful run chase in all Twenty20 Internationals when they made 236-6 against South Africa at Johannesburg last year.South Africa seamers were guilty of giving away 20 extra runs from wide deliveries to help England’s cause.Root combined in a match-winning 75-run fifth wicket stand with Jos Buttler (21) off 36 balls as England rebounded in style after being thumped by the West Indies in the opening group match two days ago.Root was brilliantly caught in the deep off Kagiso Rabada’s full toss delivery in the 19th over, but by that time, England required only 11 off 10 deliveries.With the scores tied, England lost two wickets in the first two balls of the 20th over before Moeen Ali drove to mid-off to complete England’s first win in the tournament.UNCHASEABLESCORE”We’ve all played long enough to know that no score is unchaseable,” South Africa captain Faf du Plessis said. “We said we needed to start with intensity and didn’t do that … the execution of our extras, it makes it very tough because you are always under the pump.”Earlier, Amla blazed 58 off 31 deliveries and de Kock smashed 52 off 24 balls against the same England bowling attack, which was destroyed by West Indies’ Chris Gayle at the same Wankhede Stadium.Duminy joined in South Africa’s runfest with an unbeaten 54 off 28 balls with three fours and three sixes as none of the four England seamers could stem the flow of runs.England captain Eoin Morgan said his side had “to play out of our skin” to win the match. “But there’s a lot of talent in our team if we play with freedom.”last_img read more

Lennon claim historic Ben Francis title – Dethrone six-time winners STETHS 4-2 on penalty kicks

first_img Tavis Grant, Christopher Randall, Kwesi Watts and Jason Johnson all scored for Lennon and when Dixon missed, sending his kick high over the crossbar, it was time for the massive Lennon support to storm the field in wild celebration. It was the second successive match that STETHS have taken to penalty kicks, after their thrilling contest in the semi-final against Clarendon, which was decided on sudden death penalty kicks. But Lennon, starved of a schoolboy title and having come close on a few occasion, were determined not to let this one slip and when they grabbed the early lead, outplaying STETHS in midfield, it seemed they were well on their way. STETHS responded as they normally do, with Dixon the driving force once again. The midfielder found James on the flank and the forward drifted inside and unleashed a wicked shot but found Mullings too good to beat. The Lennon keeper was at full-stretch to palm the ball over the crossbar in acrobatic fashion to deny James. As fate would have it, Mullings could do nothing about the resulting corner kick, and James found just enough space to nod home. Dethroned after six-successive lien on the Ben Francis knockout crown, STETHS will now turn their attention to the defense of their daCosta Cup title, according to technical director Wendell Downswell, after the disappointing loss. “We are disappointed, but it was a beautiful game. Lennon really ran at us, and while we responded with that late goal, it’s always a lottery when it comes to a penalty shootout,” said Downswell. “We will be ready for them again in the daCosta Cup semi-final. We want our revenge for this defeat, but congratulations to them for a great game,” he added. WESTERN BUREAU: Lennon High School’s long wait for a schoolboy football title is over. The Mocho-based institution, spurred on by their superb goalkeeper, Tyrone Mullings, surprised St Elizabeth Technical 4-2 in a penalty shootout for an historic lien on the ISSA/FLOW Ben Francis KO title, after ended regulation and extra time locked at 1-1 at Manchester High. Tavis Grant gave Lennon a deserved lead in the 16th minute with a torrid strike that caught the STETHS custodian Kenroy Wallace off guard. He had little time to react, as the ball cannoned off the underside of the cross bar and over the line for a 1-0. It took STETHS the entire second half to find the equaliser, again coming late in an important match, when Demar James headed home from close range in the 93rd minute, sending the match into extra time. “This is huge; this is everything to the school and the Lennon community. There will be massive celebrations come Monday,” said Lennon head coach Merron Gordon. Huge it was, as STETHS, who would have made it seven-straight knockout titles had they won it, wilted in the shootout, with Alex Thompson and the usually dependable Chris-Andrew Dixon missing badly. Nicholas Gayle and central defender Clifton Woodbine scored STETHS’ first two kicks from the spot. WILD CELEBRATIONlast_img read more

Cornwall’s Brown sprints to victory at Western Champs

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Cornwall College sprinter Mathew Brown held off the field to land the marquee Class One 100 metres title at the County of Cornwall Athletics Association Western Championship and put his name in the hat for the remainder of the Digicel Grand Prix series this season. One record was broken early yesterday in the Class Two girls triple jump. Moesha Nott of Rusea’s twice broke Opal James’ five-year-old record of 11.80 metres. She set a new mark of 12.54m in the second round before smashing her own record in the third and final round, soaring to 12.63m. Toni-Shay Stewart of Manning’s grabbed second place with a leap of 11.33m, and St Elizabeth Technical’s Monique Williams, third, after jumping 11.21m. The exciting Grand Prix series of races includes the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m, the long jump, discuss and high jumps events in Classes One and Two. Brown’s winning time, 10.58 seconds, was way off the record held by Nigel Ellis of STETHS, but was good enough to dismiss the challenge of Munro College’s Rushane Edwards (10.63) and that of his teammate, Washington Brown, who was third in 10.65. Green Island High School star Kimone Hines won the girls’ Class One equivalent, taking victory in 11.95.
