GCB/Hand-in-Hand Under-19 tourney

first_imgDemerara bowled out for 190; Anderson rescues Select Under-17 with centuryTHE final round of the Guyana Cricket Board/Hand-in-Hand Under-19 Inter-county three-day tournament got off to a relatively prompt start yesterday, despite the current weather conditions.This competitive round saw the commencement of battles between defending champions Demerara and Berbice at Everest, and the National Select Under-17 and Essequibo at the Police Sports Club ground.At the Everest Cricket Club ground, Demerara won the toss and elected to bat first, but only managed 190 runs off 90.3 overs. Ramnarine Chatura hit a solid 53 off 98 balls, with three fours and three sixes. West Indies youth selectees Bhaskar Yadram and Joshua Persaud made 39 and 17 respectively, while Riche Looknauth contributed 21 and Raymond Perez 17.Bowling for Berbice, left-arm spinner Keith Simpson grabbed 5 for 78 from 31 overs and off-spinner Kevin Sinclair took 5 for 32 from 38.3 overs.Berbice in reply reached 19 for 1 at the close from 13 overs, Kevin Sinclair and Adrian Sukwah unbeaten on 12 and 1 respectively. Veramootoo was dismissed by Bhaskar Yadram for 3.Over at the Police Sports Club ground at Eve Leary, the National Select Under-17 team attempted to capitalise on their option to bat first, but Essequibo had other plans as they sent back three of the Select Under-17 top-order wickets and held them at 45 for 3 after 33 overs at lunch.The Select Under-17, despite a slight recovery were soon 68 for 5 before Kevlon Anderson, batting at number five, and Pradesh Ballkishun batting at number seven gave Select Under-17s a sixth-wicket partnership of 77. Ballkishun was soon caught at long off by Quentin Sampson off Mahendra Persaud for 24.Kevlon Anderson continued to lead the Select Under-17 batting lineup, bringing up his century off 287 balls, with 13 boundaries.Anderson finished the day’s play on an unbeaten 101 that rallied the National Select Under-17 to 167 for 6 from 107 overs. Essequibo’s bowlers have so far combined to produce a good team effort, with Mahendra Persaud taking two wickets, while receiving valuable support from Joshua Jones, Sheldon Charles, Lesley Allen and Joel Fortune, all with wicket apiece.The matches continue today, with play on the second day at both the Everest and Police grounds starting at 10:00hrs.last_img read more

Police retain Hamilton Green Cup

first_imgBy Joe ChapmanSTRIKER Kester Dundas banged in the solitary goal of the Hamilton Green football championship final against home side Winners Connection to give the Guyana Police Force their second Hamilton Green title.Dundas’ goal in the 78th minute of play was the result of a received cross from Rawle Haynes down the right flankPlaying on a bigger outfield at the MSC ground the lawmen were not as dominant as one expected but their opponents were not up to scratch, as they struggled in the first half to outplay each other.However, as the second half got underway the Linden side looked better, but the City-based team always were on the hunt for top honours as they pressured the Linden side at midfield and were able to come away with some close shaves.The second half was more up-tempo and competitive as Winners Connection saw veteran Rawle ‘Boney’ Gittens replace Marmalaque Davidson.Changes by Police were not far off with Dundas coming on around the 68th minute. Ten minutes later he was able to unlock Connection’s defence and find the back of the net against a dazed Linden side. This dented the hopes of a victory after being competitive, at the very least, in this encounter.The Police side are on a good run of football performances. They have been the side to beat outside of the Guyana Football Federation’s Elite League.Their manager Keyron Boston said he was satisfied with the win although they could have played better ahead of another final which they will contest tomorrow in the City.last_img read more

Badger swimmers resume Big Ten slate

first_imgAfter impressive showings in Hawaii in their last competition, the men and women’s swimming and diving teams jump back into Big Ten competition as they compete in the Big Ten Quad Duels this weekend in Minneapolis.So far this season, the No.9 Wisconsin women (9-1, 4-0) have been on a tear through the water and the conference. In Wisconsin’s four conference meets this season, the Badgers have won by an average of 106.25 points and have shown no sign of slowing down. “I am happy with the way they have come around,” head coach Eric Hansen said. “We have got a good group already qualified for the NCAAs. Our main objective between now and the NCAAs is to prepare more and to have more people qualify. So, I feel good with where we are at with the women.”Wisconsin has been anchored by some impressive performances thus far, especially from freshman Jennifer Illescas.Against Hawaii, Illescas placed in three events, coming in third in the 200-yard freestyle (1:54.27), and winning both the 500-yard freestyle (4:59.43) and the 1000-yard freestyle (10:07.55).”She had [been swimming] really well,” said Hansen. “We knew she was a talent. So, I don’t think that’s too surprising, but her training has been very consistent. Now that the majority of the hard work is behind us, we’ll get to see how they handle the rest and what becomes of it. I’m very happy with how she has trained and how she has come around.”Not only is Illescas swimming well, but, as a whole, the Badgers are making strides towards a strong surge throughout the second half of the season.At this point, five Badgers have already earned NCAA “A” qualifying times, which qualify them for the NCAA Championship. Those Badgers are Anna Trinidad in the 200-yard IM, Andrea Wiesner in the 200-yard IM, Sarah Johnson in the 100-yard butterfly, Yi Ting Siow in the 200-yard breaststroke and Susan Johnson in the 200-yard backstroke.”We’re six qualified and it helps with a lot of things,” Hansen said. “We will be able to rest them for the Big Ten Championships so that they are 100 percent for the NCAAs.”On the men’s side, the Badgers (5-4, 1-2 Big Ten) have yet to get on a roll. They haven’t won back-to-back meets since early October.However, the Hawaii meet seemed to give the Badgers a much-needed boost, as they were able to cruise to a 106-53 victory over the Warriors. However, with Wisconsin posting a combined 18 freshmen and sophomores on their roster, the Badgers early-season struggles may not be indicative of how Wisconsin is performing.”[Our record] doesn’t reflect how we’ve performed,” Hansen said. “With a team with one junior and one senior, we’re the definition of a young team. I am really happy with how they’ve come around.”We knew we were going to take some losses this year, but, our main objective is to get people to that NCAA level and get back to the top 20. We have really seen some good results with our program.”So far this season, the standout swimmer for the men has been freshman Scott Rice. After earning a ninth place finish in the 200-yard butterfly at the Texas Invitational, Rice had one of his best meets as a Badger, earning a second-place finished in the 200-yard IM (1:55.48), the 200-yard butterfly and the 400-yard freestyle relay (3:05.12).”Scotty is a hard worker and very talented,” Hansen said. “He’s one of the major players on our men’s team. He’s surrounded by a great freshman class, and I think that class, as a whole, has really stepped up.”Scotty … is probably the closest person to qualifying individually and will play an integral part in our relays. He’s put himself in a great position [to succeed] and now it’s just attention to detail and attacking at the end of the season.”While the women had success at the duals last year, the men are heading to Minnesota in hopes of avenging last season’s poor results, in which the men lost to both Minnesota (269-85) and Purdue (212-141).Although records are important, Hansen is more concerned about technique as both teams prepare to make a splash. The women will strive towards a national championship and the men look to make a statement for the future.”Winning is something we all like doing, but how we judge our season is how we do at the end of our season,” Hansen said. “The NCAA Championships is everything to us in this sport. The Dual meet is important, and the thing I am looking for more than anything is swimming cleaner and technique. If we can do that, then we know with more rest, we can be better and be where we need to be at the end of the season.”last_img read more

Former Syracuse starters Nassib, Pugh take in game at MetLife Stadium

first_img Published on September 27, 2014 at 9:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Seeing a former Syracuse teammate coming his way, Justin Pugh delayed the beginning of an interview and greeted him.“What’s up with these jerseys, man? You guys start swaggin’ out once we left,” Pugh said after hugging senior wide receiver Jarrod West who, like his teammates, wore the SU’s new gray uniforms with shiny orange helmets. A sweaty West replied, “It’s because of y’all!” and then jogged back out to the field for pregame warm-ups.Pugh is used to seeing Orange at MetLife Stadium. Former SU defensive end Jameel McClain plays defensive line for the Giants. And Pugh’s quarterback with Syracuse, Ryan Nassib, debuted for New York Thursday when starting quarterback Eli Manning helped the team to a big lead. Pugh and Nassib addressed the media about an hour before Syracuse’s (2-1) 8 p.m. kickoff with No. 8 Notre Dame (3-0) on the same field they play out the early stages of their NFL careers, again, as teammates.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“When you see Ryan on the sidelines, it’s always — you don’t have to say anything, you just know,” Pugh said. “He gives me a little tap. I’m like ‘OK baby, let’s get this thing rolling.’”In orange pants and a navy blue Lacoste t-shirt, Pugh stood behind the same end zone he usually spends half of each Sunday shunting opponents toward.The shirt was nothing new, but the pants arrived Friday.“I had to get a little orange flavor in there, a little something different,” he said. He said he’ll be watching from the sideline, screaming, cheering on his former team. Then added: “When we win it’ll be even better.”The schedule lined up well for the SU products on the Giants, who played at Washington on Thursday night and had Saturday off to spend at MetLife Stadium. Besides a bowl game, Saturday was possibly the only time Nassib and Pugh could watch the Orange play in person.“Couldn’t ask for a better situation,” Nassib said.Nassib said he stopped by the Orange’s hotel Friday night and spoke to the team, telling the players to have fun and enjoy the moment — nothing too different from what he told his teammates when he was Syracuse’s starting quarterback.He also added that he talks weekly with SU quarterback Terrel Hunt through text.But when they greeted each other Saturday, the discussion wasn’t really about football.“He’s from New York, so I had a few questions about the area for him,” Nassib said.He talks a little more frequently with cousin Joe Nassib, but more about family than football. Joe Nassib’s a fifth-year cornerback who has recently recovered from a recent shoulder injury and could see playing time for SU’s nicked-up secondary.As Nassib spoke to reporters, he took a peek over his right shoulder as a few Orange players poured out of the tunnel and onto the field.Nassib gave a nod of approval and said, “Uniforms look nice tonight.” Commentslast_img read more

‘Next man up’ has thrived in Dodgers rotation deprived of Clayton Kershaw

first_imgLOS ANGELES — This has happened before.In fact, it has happened three consecutive seasons now. Clayton Kershaw has been lost to injury – and the Dodgers have played better than they were before his injury.Counting his two stints on the DL with back injuries in 2016 and 2017 and the first 24 games of his absence due to biceps tendinitis this season, the Dodgers have gone 74-45 while Kershaw was on the DL. That is an inexplicably better winning percentage (.622) than they have with Kershaw on the active roster in those three seasons (.584).“I guess they don’t need me,” Kershaw joked when asked about the record. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “No, it’s just a compliment to this team that we have guys who can fill voids. You see that all over the place when guys have been out. We always have a lot of guys on the DL every year it seems like. Part of the culture around here is just a ‘next-man-up’ mentality.”Through Tuesday, the next men up had made 25 starts since Kershaw’s last appearance. In that time, the Dodgers starters posted a 3.09 ERA with a 1.13 WHIP and 10.6 strikeouts per nine innings.“That’s certainly not my sentiment,” Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said of Kershaw’s “They don’t need me” line.“I think it’s just coincidence. Guys have stepped up when he’s been down. But there’s no question that we’re better when he’s there and we’re excited for him to make his start on Thursday.”That anticipation for Kershaw’s return no doubt ramped up when Kenta Maeda left his start Tuesday in the second inning with a hip injury.center_img The Dodgers have needed more than one next man to step up. Rich Hill and Hyun-Jin Ryu joined Kershaw on the DL this month.In their absence, Walker Buehler and Ross Stripling have stepped to the forefront. In their nine starts this month, those two have combined for a 1.87 ERA with 68 strikeouts in 53 innings and a .198 average against. Kershaw has noticed.“They’ve been pitching unbelievable,” he said over the weekend. “I think they’re way beyond filling the void. I think they’re here to stay for awhile. Strip (Friday against the San Diego Padres), not only did he pitch well, but that’s really, really good stuff. That’s like top-of-the-line starter stuff that he was featuring last night. Walker’s the same way.“It’s fun. Hopefully, these guys keep pitching like that – we’re going to be in a good spot.”The key for this to continue is “execution” of pitches, Roberts said.“You look at Ross Stripling and the boost he’s given us and how he’s executed his pitches,” Roberts said. “Walker’s done the same thing, obviously with plus-plus stuff but he’s executed. He really has. And I think Kenta, his past two starts, he’s executed as much as he has all year.“You look at those guys and Woody (Alex Wood) has been kind of fighting some things but outside of that last one has done a really nice job for us. I think it’s more execution and they’ve fed off each other’s starts.”ALSORight-hander Brock Stewart was returned to Triple-A Oklahoma City after going four innings in a start Monday. With Kershaw coming off the DL, Stewart won’t be needed in the rotation again. In his place, the Dodgers recalled utilityman Breyvic Valer from OKC.Acquired from the St. Louis Cardinals at the start of the season, Valera has hit .317 with six home runs and 21 RBIs in 36 games for OKC but is 0 for 4 during three previous promotions to the Dodgers. He is likely to be headed back to OKC on Thursday when Kershaw is activated from the DL.Closer Kenley Jansen took a tumble on the outfield warning track while doing his conditioning run Tuesday afternoon. Jansen tripped on a hole in the warning track and came away with a scrape on his knee but said he was fine to pitch Tuesday night.The photographer who was injured during Monday’s game, Mark Hammond of Black News Service, received 40 stitches in his forehead and was using crutches to get around Tuesday. Hammond was injured when he fell in the photo well while trying to avoid a foul ball. The game was briefly stopped while he received treatment.UP NEXTPhillies (RHP Zach Eflin, 1-1, 3.27 ERA) at Dodgers (RHP Ross Stripling, 2-1, 1.74 ERA), Wednesday, 7:10 p.m., SportsNet LA (where available)last_img read more

Tweet from Kobe Bryant highlight of Andre Ingram’s overnight stardom

After making four out of five 3-pointers in his debut, he was just 1 for 4 from deep against the Clippers, finishing with five points, six assists and three rebounds.That did not diminish, however, what occurred one night earlier.“It’s such a great story because people who play in this league know how hard it is and know what sacrifice and dedication it takes to make it here,” Lakers coach Luke Walton said. “People all around the NBA were watching and commenting on it and excited for him. And that’s a really cool thing.”Ingram said he was “advised to just cut the phone off.” But when he turned on his cell in the hours after his sizzling debut, Ingram saw hundreds of messages from friends, former teammates and coaches, and the students he’s tutored in math to supplement his $19,500 salary as a player with the South Bay Lakers. “I tried not to read them,” Ingram said, “because I’d end up responding. That’s just how it would be.”The question now for Ingram, who will return to Virginia with his wife and two daughters, is whether he has a future in the NBA.Related Articles Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error – LOS ANGELES — It wasn’t the live hit with Charles Barkley and the rest of the Turner Sports’ “Inside the NBA” crew that was most surreal to Andre Ingram. Nor was it the fact that following his 19-point outburst Tuesday that his presence was requested across the street from Staples Center on set with ESPN’s late-night “SportsCenter”.It was when his brother told him about the tweet sent by Kobe Bryant. “LOVE IT” the Lakers legend tweeted, joining a chorus of NBA stars in voicing admiration for the 32-year-old following his NBA debut.“When he told me that, we both kind of went a little crazy,” Ingram said. “We are Kobe lovers. We just are, for some time now.”Ingram was, quite literally, an overnight sensation. Trail Blazers beat Grizzlies in play-in, earn first-round series with the Lakers Lakers, Clippers schedules set for first round of NBA playoffs “I’m sure every team right now is talking about that,” Walton said. “What the answer is, I don’t know. … But when you can shoot the ball that well. … (In) the NBA you get superstars and you get specialists around those superstars. That’s kind of how you build out a really good team. He is a specialist at what he does.”Whether he plays in the NBA again or not, Ingram has achieved the kind of crossover fame many NBA players never do. He is scheduled to appear on “Good Morning America” on Thursday morning. The morning after his breakout performance, paparazzi were stationed outside Ingram’s hotel.“My wife and I, we look at each other every, I don’t know, 30 or so minutes and we say, ‘What is going on? What is happening here?’” Ingram said.What happened was that on Tuesday and Wednesday nights, a 32-year-old math tutor from Richmond, Va., got to live to his NBA dream.“It was pretty special,” Walton said.
