Potcheen for None Such Trophy feature race at Caymanas Park

first_imgChampion sprinter POTCHEEN should defy topweight once again and win today’s grade-one feature over 1200 metres for the None Such Sprint Trophy at Caymanas Park. The $1.2 million race is run annually in honour of the legendary native-bred sprinter None Such, who was Horse of the Year in 1967. Significantly, None Such won more than 20 races in an illustrious career and was ridden to victory on many occasions by Hall of Famer Kenneth Mattis, who died in October last year at age 78. Fittingly, the Kenneth Mattis OD Memorial Trophy over 2000 metres for overnight allowance horses will be run as the supporting feature on the card, this attracting seven starters, including top contenders ROYAL VIBES, MIRACLE STAR and BOLD AVIATOR. POTCHEEN, who shoulders topweight of 57.0kg with customary rider Omar Walker aboard, is out for the first time since winning the Lotto Sprint Trophy over 1100 metres on May 23, a race in which he closed rapidly on the rails to beat the fleet-footed FORTUNEONEHUNDRED by a neck in the fairly good time of 1:06.0. In that race, the Harry Parsard-trained POTCHEEN had stable-companion UPPA TUNE behind in fifth, while further behind were PETE’SWILDONE and the 2013 derby winner, PERFECT NEIGHBOUR. All three renew rivalry with POTCHEEN on slightly improved terms at the weights, and with UPPA TUNE and the Wayne DaCosta-trained PERFECT NEIGHBOUR having looked razor-sharp at exercise, it could be closer. Both UPPA TUNE and PERFECT NEGHBOUR have won their subsequent races, the Parsard-trained UPPA TUNE capturing the Reggae Trophy over the straight on July 11, and PERFECT NEIGHBOUR the Prime Minister’s Stakes over 2000 metres on August 6. UPPA TUNE, in particular, represents the genuine speed in this small field, and with Paul ‘Country’ Francis retaining the ride aboard the versatile American horse, he will have to be caught. However, a well-prepared POTCHEEN won’t be far off turning for home, and his now-famous stretch run should prove too much for UPPA TUNE in deep stretch. Other firm fancies on the card are TARANIS (Ellis up) to go one better in the second race over 1820 metres, FORCE DE JOUR to repeat in the third over the straight, down-in-class INFANTRY OFFICER in the sixth, DOOLAHIN in the eighth, and ROYAL VIBES in the Kenneth Mattis OD Memorial Trophy.last_img read more

Hubert Lawrence | Saving football, a programme of work

first_img In a culture that believes that talent reigns supreme, the value of good playing surfaces is sometimes underestimated. Recently, government embarked on a programme to improve the quality of high-school playing fields. Something similar is needed for football and cricket fields if players are to properly learn the skills they need. Bumpy fields make it impossible for them to control the ball and pass it at the required level of proficiency. Perhaps, in exchange for a tax concession, companies involved in landscaping could be invited to help in this area. The target would be to renovate at least one football field per parish each year and provide the expertise and staff to do the maintenance. The next critical element is the establishment of a national playing philosophy. Our biggest asset is sprint speed, and a style that embraces that asset may well suit Jamaica best. This may run at odds with our love of Brazilian and Barcelona football, but beauty can have many faces. Whatever style we choose, it should become the template for all of Jamaica’s national teams. That would allow newcomers to the senior team to fit in seamlessly. Once this choice is made, choosing players from the diaspora will be much easier because the selector will be looking not just for good players, but for those who will fit. The wholesale elimination of players from the diaspora could also eliminate the exposure they have received elsewhere. Lest we forget, Paul Hall, Fitzroy Simpson and Deon Burton, all based in England, boosted Jamaica’s drive to qualify for the 1998 World Cup with their competitiveness, professionalism and skills. The door should never close on such an input. The same logic applies to home-grown players who ply their trade abroad. Instead, an overall programme of work should be undertaken to improve Jamaica’s football. Better- coached players on better fields working together within a playing philosophy that suits Jamaica, will work much better. It will take time, but it needs to start now. – Hubert Lawrence has made notes at trackside since 1980. Talent reigns supreme Picking a national squad solely of local players isn’t going to save Jamaican football. The issues facing us on that field of play are too wide-ranging for that. The football fraternity will have to look itself in the eye and build a structure that produces quality play. That will take time. Pegging success to qualifying for the 2022 World Cup may be a mistake, too, as it may force the Jamaica Football Federation (JFF) to rush or overlook key elements in the development process. To be fair, some work has started with the certification of many more coaches in recent years. The requirement that coaches must have FIFA certification to train high-school teams is a plus. The pay-off is better-equipped players in the future. Those who organise preparatory and primary- school football might be well advised to adopt similar regulations. Such a move would ensure that aspiring players adopt good technical habits early in their acquaintance with the game. As we all know, bad habits can be really hard to break.last_img read more

Flyers handed 5-2 Loss in Game 2

first_imgAfter 40 minutes, the tide had taken a 360 degree turn. And by the end of the game, one team came out with a huge victory while leaving the other gasping for breath as they try to find a way to solve the other team for a whole 60 minutes. In the end, it would be the Powell River Regals who would score 4 consecutive goals in the second period, en route to a 5-2 victory on home ice. The series is now 2-0 for the Regals and the Flyers will now need to win 3 straight hockey games if they want to defend their 5-time defending Savage Cup champ status.The first period would quickly establish itself as the most exciting period of the series to date; mostly on behalf of the Flyers, who outshot the Regals 16-9 but could not solve netminder David Brumby. Brumby made 5 or 6 saves that should have goals, as did Clayton Pool at the other end, despite facing nearly half the shots. Just two penalties would be called in the opening frame, with each team killing off successfully. The only thing aside from big saves that would get fans on their feet was a huge hit by Aaron Schepers of the Flyers on to Chris Tarr of the Regals who would leave to the dressing room but would return minutes late. Tarr cleared the puck from the zone just as Schepers was incoming and it resulted in Tarr going spread eagle on the boards before quickly going to the bench.As the Flyers knew they had the momentum going in to the second, it would take under 20 seconds to finally beat Brumby, as Mat Alexander would beat the former ECHL starter to open the scoring on a play that was momentarily the game changer. Alexander would later leave the game and not return due to a minor injury; but during his time on the ice, he played the hardest of anyone on either of the teams; and the goal was certainely well deserved. The Flyers would battle hard but the Regals would strike back 10 minutes later, with a Elias Godoy goal that was set up on a nifty pass in the spot from Scott Kirton. The deadlock would last just 2:29 as the Regals would capitalize on the power play, on a Dale Lupul point shot that beat Pool over the right shoulder. With a one goal lead, the Regals started to attempt longer passes, and the man who has long pass written all over him, John Coyle; would make no mistake in burying his first with 3:06 remaining in the middle frame. Then, just 37 seconds later, Coyle would again capitalize on a Flyer mistake, sniping one under the glove of Pool for a 3 goal lead late in the second. Both teams took 3 penalties in the second, to bring the power play opportunities to an even 11 for each team through 5 periods of the Savage Cup. Shots in the second would be 14-6 in favor of the Regals, proving that in no way were they going to just roll over.- Advertisement -Another 16 shots in the third period for the Flyers would be necessary, and that’s exactly what they did. The Regals would also match their first period total of 9 in the third, but it would only take one of those shots to really bury the win. Taylor Greatrex would pull the Flyers within two with 6:54 remaining, on a weak shot from the point that snuck through the legs of Brumby and in to the back of the net. The Flyers would play the next couple of shifts very hard, but a turnover in the neutral zone would lead to ex-Victoria Salsa Blair Tassone wiring a slap shot under the blocker of Pool to restore the 3 goal lead, as the Flyers bench looked on in disbelief. The Regals would get a power play late in the game off of a questionable call on Michael Olson, who looked better and better as the night went on. The power play would be unable to generate anything as Aaron Schepers pinned the puck to the boards deep in the corner, which he used his strong frame to fight off Regal opposition for the final 45 seconds of the contest. The final buzzer would sound and Dave Brumby would make 38 stops to lead his team to a 5-2 win and a 2-0 series lead over the Flyers going in to Saturday night’s game, in which the Savage Cup will be in house. Final shots on goal in the game would be 40 for the Flyers, and 30 for the Regals, many of which came on the powerplay, one area in particular where Pool played well.Quickly touching a few other thoughts about the game; the Flyers welcomed Rick Cleaver and Gary Gladue in to their lineup, and both players played very well from the getgo but by the end were leading the Flyers attack; along with Michael Olson and Jason Deleurme, who seemed to settle in as the game wore on. Also having very strong games for the Flyers was Todd, Dave and Mat Alexander, Luke Middleton and youngster Taylor Greatrex. At the end of the day, it has to be said that most of the Flyers played an efficient game, but a few costly mistakes and missed saves and blocks, would cost them the game.Next game for the Flyers and Regals will be tomorrow night at the Hap Parker Arena in Powell River, as the Flyers will fight for their Allan Cup contention lives. Not only is the spot as host for the McKenzie Cup on the line, but also the Flyers 5-time defending Savage Cup champions is on the line. The Savage Cup will be in house for Dunc McCallum Jersey Retirement Night at the Hap; which begins at 7:30.

Lancaster students take in City Hall

first_imgLANCASTER – High school students got a little sample of municipal government Thursday when they watched City Hall employees and council members at work and made plans for a hypothetical recreation and cultural center. Twenty-one teens from six high schools in Lancaster spent the day at City Hall in the annual Youth in Government event. Students shadowed city employees from various city departments, including public works, finance, redevelopment, human resources, and parks, recreation, and arts. “Government is more complex than I thought,” said Laura Moulton, a Desert Christian student who was the city’s student mayor. “It (the event) is an incredible hands-on experience.” Moulton’s day included following Mayor Frank Roberts and presenting a proclamation to the Lancaster High School robotics team. “I didn’t know what city councils were about. I didn’t know about the hierarchy of City Hall,” said Mario Ware, an Antelope Valley High School student who played the role of a concerned citizen. “I have a better knowledge and experience about City Hall.” For some of the students, the day was a glimpse into a possible career. “I plan to get into government,” said Justine Thompson, a student from Quartz Hill High School who was the youth public works director. “I plan on being a lawyer. I thought I might as well start now.” Whether the students were planning a government career or not, the key point was learning the mechanics of how municipal government works. “It’s nice to know what’s going on in your city,” said Erika Webb, an Antelope Valley High School student who also played the role of a concerned citizen. “I like having that awareness.” Jim Skeen, (661) 267-5743 james.skeen@dailynews.com 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

This year’s project was called the Westside Community Recreation/Cultural Facility. The students were divided into five groups, with each group coming up with its own proposal using a budget of $50 million. The best ideas were to be put together into one project for discussion at a mock City Council meeting Thursday. “You have to deal with everybody’s needs and concerns,” said Rachael Thompson, a Quartz Hill High School student who spent the day as the city’s student public information officer. “It’s a very big project that includes everybody.” Each of the five proposals were critiqued by architect Doug Grove, who is working on the city’s baseball complex at the former Antelope Valley Fairgrounds. Some of the students’ ideas worked, such as trying to use a golf course or other landscape projects to buffer the development from nearby homes. Other ideas were not practical, such as a hotel deemed to be too far away from the city core to be profitable. last_img read more

GAA NEWS: BARNEY LAFFERTY MASTERCLASS ENSURES MAC CUMHAILLS EARN POINT AGAINST KILLYBEGS

first_imgGAA NEWS: Mac Cumhaills V KillybegsA Brian Lafferty masterclass in scoring played out in awful conditions saw Seán Mac Cumhaills leave Eamonn Bryne Memorial Park with a share of the spoils against Killybegs. Mac Cumhaills, with 5 players once again not available for selection through injury fought back from a 5 point deficit to head back through the gap with a valuable point on the road in a game that was subject to a pitch inspection before throw in as the heavy volume of rain that fell during the reserve game threatened to call the game off.It was the home side who opened the scoring with their first attack when a long range effort in defied the water laden pitch to bounce over the Killybeg’s forward and Mac Cumhaill’s marker to sail over the bar to put the home side into the lead. Mac Cumhaill’s had an effort themselves on 2 minutes but it sailed wide.Less than a minute later Killbegs had another point on the board but Brian Lafferty responded with a free on 5 minutes to open the scoring for Mac Cumhaills before adding another on 7 minutes to have both teams on 2 points apiece.Killybegs followed up with a shot that came back of the post before being cleared to safety by the alert Twin Town’s side defence. Killybegs took the lead again on 9 minutes with a point from play. The dangerous Brian Lafferty put in great work to chip the ball into his hands before taking on the Killybeg’s defence with a cutting run and laying the ball of to Aaron Kelly but unfortunately his effort was saved by the home team keeper and the ball went out for a 45’. Killybeg’s took a 2 point lead on 12 minutes with a point from play before Gary McGirr opened his scoring of the day with a well-taken fisted point a minute later to keep in touch of the home side by 1 point.  Brian Lafferty once again levelled the scores with another well struck point from a free on 17 minutes and Brian Patton made a run from midfield and pointed over himself from the left corner position on 20 minutes to put Mac Cumhaills into the lead for the first time in the game.Killybegs hit back on 21 minutes with a point which was followed by a penetrating run by Chris Gallen to point over and put Mac Cumhaill’s a point up once more. Killybegs levelled the game from a free via their goalkeeper who was on free duty for most of the afternoon.With 2 minutes before half time and after an impressive save from Eoin Gallen to deny a goal attempt the referee awarded a penalty for an alleged throw ball incident by one of the Mac Cumhaill’s players. The home side dispatched the penalty to take an important 3 point lead in with them to half time.Half time Score:Killybegs:                     1.06Sean Mac Cumhaills:  0.06 The weather conditions quickly deteriorating in the second half with heavy rain falling once again and causing problems with passing for both teams. An effort for a point by Killybegs on the Mac Cumhaill’s goals dropped into the hands of the waiting Eoin Gallen and an attack up the pitch was finished by Brian Lafferty once again with a powerful fisted point to reduce the margin to 2 points with 2 minutes played.Killybegs saw an effort come back off the post but quickly exchanged scores with a fisted point of their own shortly after to restore their 3 point lead before adding another score from a free to extend that lead to 4 points.A scramble in the Killybeg’s box almost let the away side in for a shot on goal but the home side smothered it out and Killybegs went on to add another point from a free to leap into an almost unassailable 5 point lead. However Mac Cumhaills were not to be daunted and Brian Lafferty with his pacey runs once again was on target to point over from play just inside the 45’ on 40 minutes.A powerful ball in from Brian Patton on 46 minutes against the conditions was almost met by the lurking James Beirne as Mac Cumhaills battled to claw the home side back. Another Killybeg’s free a minute later re-established a 5 point lead for the home side. Man of the moment Brian Lafferty notched another superb point from play and another followed soon after on 26 minutes when a promising Gary McGirr run at the home side’s defence resulted in him being brought down with Brian Lafferty converting the free again and reducing the deficit to 2 points.With the game in the melting pot Brian then went on to add another 3 scores, a point from play on 61 minutes quickly followed by a converted free and then that all important equalising score to ensure Mac Cumhaill’s went home with a valuable point.Full time Score:Killybegs:                     1.10Sean Mac Cumhaills:   0.13GAA NEWS: BARNEY LAFFERTY MASTERCLASS ENSURES MAC CUMHAILLS EARN POINT AGAINST KILLYBEGS was last modified: May 11th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:GAAKillybegsMac CumhaillsNoticesSportlast_img read more
