TODAY’S GAMES: Denham Town 1 St Jago 1 Jamaica College 3 Hydel 1 Bridgeport vs STATHS 1 p.m. @ Constant Spring Charlie Smith vs Kingston College 3 p.m. @ Constant Spring FEELING GOOD YESTERDAY’S RESULTS When pushed, reigning ISSA/Flow Manning Cup holders Jamaica College (JC) responded like true champions, showing composure and depth in quality to overcome a stout Hydel High challenge to win 3-1 at the Prison Oval playing field in Spanish Town, yesterday. The champions now lead Group I on six points, courtesy of two wins from as many games and seem set for yet another semi-final spot, with only a game against lowly St Jago remaining. Hydel is second, on three points, with a game against Denham Town remaining. JC began the contest by applying high pressure on the Hydel defence, though it was Hydel who took the first shot at goal through former Under-17 standout Nicholas Nelson, who forced the JC keeper into a save. The Dark Blues settled in the game without many ball possession, but forced Hydel into defensive errors, with Chavany Willis slicing home a powerful shot into the Hydel net in the 25th minute, which took their defence off guard. Five minutes later, Tray McKay drew the Ferry-based school level at 1-1 from a direct counter attack, which ended in a tap in by the Hydel attacker in the 30th minute. Duhaney Williams swung the game back in JC’s way 11 minutes later (36th) by firing past a lapse Hydel defence from a JC corner kick. Forward Donovan Dawkins finished off Hydel’s hopes of a late equaliser when he climbed beautifully to head home a powerful 82nd minute goal, to secure all three JC points. The scorer was subbed on in the second half along with the clever Tyreek Magee, who added much attacking impetus to the JC team. “I feel good to come on and score. It’s been a long time I haven’t come on and win a game for my school, but I feel really good to help out my team,” Dawkins revealed. “It’s my third goal this season,” the player, who has won two Manning Cup titles, and scored the lone goal which decided the Manning Cup final last year, told The Gleaner. Hydel’s coach Donovan Duckie said JC did their homework on his team and knew their deficiencies, noting that his team “could have done better scouting of JC”, as well. Meanwhile, in the day’s curtain-raiser Denham Town held on for a 1-1 draw with St Jago High at the same venue, despite having a controversial goal disallowed.
PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Well-travelled Belgian Tom Saintfiet was yesterday appointed head coach of the Trinidad and Tobago national side but could be sacked after just two games in charge if he does not keep the twin-island republic in contention for the World Cup finals.The 43-year-old was announced by the Trinidad and Tobago Football Association as the replacement for Stephen Hart, who was fired last month after the country’s poor start to the CONCACAF World Cup qualifying final round.Saintfiet, who has already coached in multiple countries, will be in charge of the national side for their two upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Panama and Mexico next March, and TTFA president David John Williams said he would be held to a very high standard for those two encounters.”He came highly recommended as well. He worked in difficult situations in Africa and we feel he can do the job for us,” John-Williams told a media conference here.”I will also tell you this, if he doesn’t get the job done on the 24th and 28th of March , he will be looking for a job, and I make no apologies for saying that.”We are very serious because if we don’t get the result on the 24th and on the 28th of March, we may as well kiss our campaign goodbye.”NEAR THE BOTTOMTrinidad lie one from bottom in the six-team final round without a point after losing both their opening games last month.They went down 2-0 at home to Costa Rica on November 11, and four days later, suffered a 3-1 defeat to Honduras away in San Pedro Sula at the Estadio OlÌmpico Metropolitano.Hart, who led the squad for three and a half years, paid the price with his job and John-Williams argued that results was the nature of professional football.”Football and professional sport is a brutal game,” he pointed out. “World Cup qualifying, it’s about results and getting to the World Cup. If the results don’t go your way, you have to do something different.”Saintfiet has coached extensively in Africa, leading Namibia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, Togo and Malawi, as well as a stint with Asian nation Bangladesh.Facing the media for the first time, he praised Trinidad and Tobago as a country with a “huge history” but with a “more huge future”, and said he believed he could play a role in advancing the national programme.He said he also believed T&T could still rescue their World Cup dream of reaching Russia 2018.”I believe it’s possible. Two games have been played. We are in fifth position and we have to be in the top three or if needed, to be in the fourth position for the playoffs but they are still eight games to go,” Saintfiet said.
National junior golfer, Tristan Brown, despite dominating with 15 consecutive wins over the last two years, is looking to continue his transition as a champion golfer.The former Dunrobin Prep student was unbeatable on the local circuit between age 11-12.Now a 13-year-old Jamaica College student, Brown says he is looking to continue winning tournaments locally and regionally.”I have been playing at the national level for two years. I made the team for those two years and it’s been a good experience going around and playing golf at a high level,” Brown shared in an interview.The quiet but outstanding young golfer has made his name as an elite junior golfer.Brown, while not playing at his best, was again in command to card a comfortable victory at the recent SANTA charity golf tournament.He won the Boys Red tees category with a score of 84.”I can do better. It has been a good experience for those two years, and I hope to improve always,” he told The Gleaner.Brown, who keeps notching up win after win, will have no time to settle as he is expected to travel overseas for a tournament early next year.Ahead of match four in the Jamaica Golf Association (JGA) series, which could land him yet another title, the JC student notes that he is putting in the work at every opportunity.”At JC; there is a little golf range for my benefit of practising because from school to the golf course, it takes a lot of time to travel, so I got a little group together who have a little passion to practise, and get better,” Brown outlined.The youngster will turn his attention to the national trials soon, a challenge that he hopes will help his game improve.”I would like to see my game playing under par, 60s golf and being focused all through and not making simple mistakes,” said Brown.”It takes a lot of work, early Saturday mornings, and mental strength, and a lot of playing. The persons in my age group now, from last year they have improved, they have better scores so I am moving on to the age 14-16 age group next year and I want to be on top of this age group,” he added.
ST JOHN’S, Antigua (CMC):Jason Mohammed believes West Indies have sent a strong signal to their detractors they can compete against world class sides like England, despite their defeat in the opening One-Day International of the three-match series.The 30-year-old right-hander was the standout performer at the Vivian Richards Cricket Stadium here with a maiden ODI half-century as West Indies went down by 45 runs in the encounter on Friday after being asked to chase 297 for victory.”I thought we played a very good game of cricket,” the Trinidadian told reporters.”I know probably not much people gave us a chance before this game but I think we played really well and showed that as a young team coming in, that we can compete with England and most importantly, we can win games.”The second One-Day International will be played today, starting at 8:30 a.m. (Jamaica time).England captain Eoin Morgan stroked an excellent 107 to rally his side, after fast bowler Shannon Gabriel had stunned the visitors with two early strikes to leave them on 29 for two in the eighth over.In reply, West Indies fought back from 39 for three in the 12th over courtesy of Mohammed’s top score of 72 off 91 balls.He put on 69 for the fourth wicket with Shai Hope (31) and a further 82 for the fifth wicket with Carter, to steer West Indies to 190 for four in the 39th over.But once Carter perished in the deep, the innings lost energy, and the Windies were all out for 251 in the 48th over.Mohammed, who was seventh out in the 42nd over, said losing Hope and Carter had been the turning point in the run chase especially since the lower order failed to fire.”We were in the game right through. I think with myself and Shai and then Carter, we had a really good partnership and then losing the both of them kind of pulled back the momentum … so that was the changing point in our chase,” Mohammed explained.GOOD CHANCE”I think we had a good chance at chasing but the two guys (Hope and Carter) coming and getting out and then our power-hitters – the captain (Jason Holder) and Carlos (Brathwaite) – didn’t get off so I think that was a crucial part in the game.”The personal achievement for Mohammed came in only his third ODI and his first international appearance in two years, and he said he was still feeling in good nick from last month’s Regional Super50.”We just came off our regional tournament and I had a very good one. [I was] coming in here with a lot of confidence knowing I had some good form and some good innings behind me,” the Trinidadian said.”But they are world class bowlers and it was always going to be a tough job but I think I played pretty well in the end and that’s the reason I got 50-odd.”
TRAINING like greased lightning, 2015 Sprint champion POKER STAR returns off an eight-month lay-up none the worse and is the firm choice in this afternoon’s ninth race, an open allowance at 1100 metres.Last raced September 16, beaten nine lengths behind BUZZ NIGHTMARE in the grade one None Such Sprint, POKER STAR returns down in class, looking every hand the horse that went on a four-race win streak from October 2015 to February 2016.Had it not been for an unfortunate incident in which he decked jockey Robert Halledeen at the start of last year April’s Lady Geeta Trophy, POKER STAR would have extended that streak to six consecutive victories, because he returned a month later to win the Lotto Sprint.Bouncing at exercise with cheekpieces fitted for the first time, POKER STAR has been flying in the mornings. He galloped 58.1 from the gate, out the straight, a month ago and returned two weeks later to clock 1:06.1 for five-and-a-half furlongs.As if that wasn’t convincing enough, trainer Wayne DaCosta had jockey Omar Walker put him to the test a week later, 1:12.2 for six furlongs, followed by 1:06.4 for another five-and-a-half last Thursday morning.CRUCIAL APPEAL, TALENTED TONY K and CHACE THE GREAT are all quality horses in the nine-horse field, but POKER STAR is back and looking awesome.DOWN IN CLASSDaCosta’s runner is actually down in class. His last seven races were all in grade one, of which he won four, decked his rider once and was not in the best of health for his two most recent outings, July and September of last year.In July, POKER STAR went off at odds of 5-2 against stablemate SEEKING MY DREAM in the 1400-metre Eros Trophy in July but suffered a nine-length loss. It was afterwards revealed by DaCosta that his sprint star had hurt himself at the start by slamming into the gate while being loaded.He returned in September’s None Such Sprint but wasn’t himself, again losing by nine lengths, beaten by BUZZ NIGHTMARE, CAMPESINO and FRANFIELD at 1200 metres.However, after eight months off, POKER STAR seems nicely freshened for his 2017 debut, working sweetly and looking unbeatable on paper.
