XLCR too hot for StGC

first_imgThorne Buchanan’s clever 17th-minute penalty pushed former champions Excelsior High to the top of Group A, while condemning many-time ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup champions St George’s College to a nervy 1-0 defeat at Winchester Park yesterday. With group honours and three valuable points up for grabs, the visitors showed that they were up to it from the onset, constricting their hosts’ normal free-flowing game, while showing their own abilities in what was an exciting contest in front of a jam-packed venue. Excelsior’s dangerous Tyane Wilson made himself a nuisance to the opposition’s defence from the get-go, slipping behind the St George’s defenders before he was bundled over by goalkeeper John Wilson in the 16th minute. The cool and confident dread-locked Buchanan stepped up, spotted his penalty and fired clinically into the far left hand corner. With this goal, they grew in confidence, and Buchanan could have scored a second, having been fed through cleverly by teammate Wilson, but with only the keeper to beat, he fired high. “Well, it’s a great feeling scoring against St George’s College. Anytime scoring against STGC is a great feeling, I am very happy,” Buchanan said following the game. “This can be a big year for me. I just need to continue putting in the work and performing. I am looking forward to scoring atleast 12 goals,” he added in reference to his fifth goal of the season. He later hopped off injured, but gave the assurance that it was not a serious injury.

The visitors closed the channels and did well to wrestle possession away from St George’s, who were forced to start playing long balls in the second half. Voshawn Williams had an opportunity to double Excelsior’s lead late on after picking up a bad giveaway by the St George’s keeper before dribbling into space and firing a curling shot at an open goal wide of the target. Excelsior’s coach, Shavar Thomas, said his charges came expecting a hard-fought game from St George’s and was happy with the win. “We could have got some more goals, but we are happy with three points. We have a confident bunch, and we give our guys confidence to go out there and express themselves,” said the winning coach. His St George’s counterpart, Neville ‘Bertis’ Bell, said: “We are always disappointed when we don’t win, but credit to Excelsior, they played very well, and this was a wonderful schoolboy football game.” This was St George’s College’s third loss at Winchester Park since 2007.last_img read more

Seven goals, six games for Southampton’s bargain striker Austin

first_imgLONDON (AP): As the goals have dried up for Jamie Vardy at Leicester City, another former non-league striker has embarked on a hot scoring streak for a Premier League club. Charlie Austin made it seven goals in six games in all competitions for Southampton with a double in yesterday’s 3-1 victory over Burnley that took the south-coast club up to eighth in the standings. In a career that began outside England’s four professional leagues, Burnley provided the 27-year-old Austin with one of his stepping stones to the world’s richest soccer competition. Austin was a bricklayer working a full day on a building site before playing on a part-time basis for Poole Town in the ninth tier until 2009. It took third-tier club Swindon to pluck Austin from obscurity, for Burnley to take him up another league, and then QPR to give him a shot at the Premier League. The day’s first Premier League game lacked the entertainment provided later by Southampton, with the only memorable moment coming with Jose Holebas’s eye-catching goal. The 32-year-old Greek midfielder sent a shot from the edge of the penalty area soaring into the top of the net in the 54th minute at the Riverside stadium in northeast England. Watford climbed to 10th place as Middlesbrough remained winless at home this season since returning to the Premier League and only out of the relegation zone on goal difference. Still, doubts persisted around Austin’s fitness. Southampton were able to snap him up for £4 million (then US$6 million) in January. What a bargain that now seems. Austin’s first goal yesterdaycame in the 52nd minute, Nathan Redmond’s low volley from the edge of the area doubled Southampton’s lead, and Austin was on target from the penalty spot in the 66th minute, following Johann Berg Gudmundsson’s push on Sam McQueen. The one blot on the afternoon for the Saints was Burnley becoming the first team to score against them in 612 minutes when Vokes scored a late penalty. “This team will always create chances, it’s a dream for any striker,” Austin said. “I am in the right place at the right time.” Burnley is only a point above the relegation zone, with seven points from its first eight games back in the Premier League.

Diving into 2017 – Lyn expects bigger things from Jamaican divers in New Year

first_img “Because of Yona, he wants to represent Jamaica at the highest level,” Lyn says. “He dives for Crystal Palace Diving Club in England, and people who have seen him dive say that he dives better than Yona did at that age.” But Lyn told The Gleaner that the facilities at the National Aquatics Centre in Kingston have hampered unearthing local talent. “At this point, we have none, but what I am encouraged to do is get some infrastructure for the National Stadium pool,” he says. “Not many countries in the world have an outdoor diving set-up, but had we had an outdoor set-up prior to Rio, we would have been able to host several countries coming here to practise. “It really is important that we try and get the facilities here to promote diving, not just for our local divers, but as a local destination for other countries that want to do diving year round. Lyn says Knight-Wisdom’s nomination for the RJR award hints that the discipline is getting the exposure it needs. “It really is good for diving. Yona, as a diver, goes to some places and some countries that a lot of other athletes wouldn’t go to normally. Therefore, as part of a diving fraternity, it just brings more exposure to Jamaica as a country, which is good for us.” HIGHEST LEVEL Former Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica President Martin Lyn says that he has a big year planned for diving in the island in 2017. The diving fraternity has been encouraged by Yona Knight-Wisdom’s performances at last summer’s Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, which have seen him nominated for the People’s Choice Performance of the Year award at the RJR Sports Foundation National Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year awards. Lyn, who has said he welcomes nomination for re-election to the presidency, says that he expects Knight-Wisdom to continue to do what he describes as big things for Jamaica next year, when he returns to fitness. “He took a little rest towards the end of the Olympics, but he’s getting back into focus now,” he says. “After getting him back into his regime, he has the British [Diving Championships] Trials at the end of February, or early March. Then he has the World Championships in Budapest [in Hungary].” But the 21-year-old is not the only hopeful Lyn has in mind. He says he is expecting another British-born Jamaican, 14-year-old Pele Julien, to represent the country well next year.last_img read more

When they finally hit the Honda Center cage on Saturday night, he’ll have a chance to show how he really feels.“A guy like Daniel, he has my full, undivided attention,” Jones said this week. “He says that he’s in my head, and that’s exactly where I want him to be, because he is in my head.

Before Jones and Cormier, welterweight champion Tyron Woodley takes on Brazilian jiu-jitsu master Demian Maia in a compelling clash of styles, and pound-for-pound women’s superstar Cris “Cyborg” Justino faces Invicta champion Tonya Evinger for the vacant featherweight title. View comments Jones’ yearlong suspension has ended, and the UFC put him right back in a title shot with Cormier, who dutifully defended the belt during the mercurial ex-champion’s absence. Cormier, an ex-Olympian and family man who also works as a television commentator, sees every flaw in Jones’ makeup.“He’s a guy who can’t stop hurting himself and people around him,” Cormier said. “He’s a talented athlete, but mixed martial arts aren’t just about the best athlete. He’s weak mentally. He’s got problems, and I don’t know if he solved them yet.”Jones plays it cool when talking about Cormier, yet their promotional staredowns have usually devolved into trash-talking and physical drama. They got into an infamous brawl in a Las Vegas casino lobby in 2014 during the early stages of their promotion of the first bout.They exchanged harsh words again this week in a faceoff, but Jones has vowed to be classy after he wins their rematch.“He’s a good dude,” Jones said. “I want the best for him, I really do. I wish he was just man enough to realize that he’s (in) the wrong era. He just happened to come into the sport, he’s 39 years old, and he’s (fighting) a guy who’s in his prime, a guy who’s doing everything in his power to make sure this is his era. I wish he could just swallow that and say, ‘I’m the baddest (man) outside Jon Jones, and I can go to sleep with that.’”The UFC 214 pay-per-view card starts with two absolute corkers: Veteran brawlers Robbie Lawler and Donald “Cowboy” Cerrone meet after light heavyweight prospects Jimi Manuwa and Volkan Oezdemir.

There will be no trilogy. Like I say all the time, Daniel Cormier is not my rival. I have no issue with him.”Jones’ biggest issues have always been with himself.Jones reached the pinnacle of his sport when he soundly defeated Cormier in January 2015 to defend his UFC 205-pound title. Practically nothing has gone right in the ensuing 2 1/2 years for Jones, whose capacity for self-sabotage and lousy decision-making surpassed even his incredible MMA talent.The UFC stripped Jones of its title twice — after a hit-and-run accident in which he broke a pregnant woman’s arm, and again after he was revealed to have failed a doping test four days before fighting Cormier at UFC 200 last July.ADVERTISEMENT Indian national gunned down in Camarines Sur End of his agony?
