Jamaica College’s captain, Oquin Robinson, says the more mature team will walk away with the Manning Cup prize, when they square off against Wolmer’s Boys in the final at the National Stadium this evening.In a team of accomplished schoolboy footballers, Robinson was chosen to lead the group and so far he has led with distinction. The team’s only defeat this season came in the Super Cup at the hands of Clarendon College, so he believes his leadership has been vital to the team and that it will be very important when they play the deciding game.”I am really important because we have a lot of leaders in this team, players in the national team, players in the Premier League, players from the daCosta Cup and players who have played in this competition before. So my responsibility has been really great. I have to make sure they are motivated, determined and focused on what is at hand,” he said.The central midfielder believes the more experienced team will take the title and he argued that he and his team fit the bill more than their opponent.”It’s going to be a very important game but as the name states, Manning Cup. So it’s the ‘manliest’ team that will win and we have the maturity and confidence,” he said.- L. S.
Houston Astros’ George Springer celebrates after hitting a two-run home run during the 11th inning of Game 2 of baseball’s World Series against the Los Angeles Dodgers Wednesday, Oct. 25, 2017, in Los Angeles. (AP Photo/Alex Gallardo)LOS ANGELES, California—George Springer screamed with joy as he circled the bases after hitting a two-run homer in the 11th inning.Would it be enough? Was this the final plot twist on one of the wildest nights in postseason history?ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ MOST READ “All of a sudden, two runs seemed like it was the Grand Canyon,” he said. “I was just trying to remind these guys two runs is nothing.”Bregman’s RBI single in the third gave Houston its first lead of the Series, a hit that might have turned into a three-run, inside-the-park homer had the ball not caromed off the bill of Taylor’s cap directly to left fielder Joc Pederson.Los Angeles had just two hits through seven innings but led 3-1 behind Pederson’s fifth-inning solo homer and Seager’s tiebreaking, two-run drive in the sixth against Verlander. It was Pederson’s first home run since July 26.Jansen entered with a 3-1 lead trying for his first six-out save in a year after Bregman doubled leading off the eighth against Brandon Morrow, a ball that ticked off the glove of a diving Puig in the right-field corner. Furious that he didn’t make what would have been a sensational catch, Puig slammed his mitt to the ground.Correa’s RBI single off Jansen ended a record 28-inning postseason scoreless streak by the Dodgers’ bullpen.Gonzalez, choking up on the bat, seemed an unlikely candidate for a tying homer. He had not driven in a run in his 45 plate appearances since Houston’s playoff opener, and the blown save was just the second for Jansen this year. The Dodgers had been 98-0 in 2017 when leading after eight innings, including the postseason.“I didn’t make my pitch,” Jansen said. “You can’t beat yourself up about that.”As the slanting sun illuminated the green hills of Elysian Park behind center field and the ochre-tinted San Gabriel Mountains beyond, retired Dodgers broadcaster Vin Scully took the mound for the ceremonial first pitch . The 89-year-old, who left the booth in 2016 after his 67th season, charmed the crowd when he began “somewhere up in heaven, Duke Snider, Jackie Robinson, Roy Campanella and Gil Hodges are laughing their heads off” at his presence on the mound. He feigned an arm injury and turned the ritual over to Fernando Valenzuela, who helped the Dodgers win their 1981 title.The game-time temperature was 93 degrees—down 10 degrees from the opener. Celebrities in the sellout crowd of 54,293 included golfers Tiger Woods and Fred Couples, and former NFL quarterback Peyton Manning.Houston improved to 10-0 in nine starts and one relief appearance by Verlander, the 2011 AL MVP and Cy Young Award winner obtained in a trade from Detroit at the Aug. 31 deadline to be eligible for the Astros’ postseason roster. Coco’s house rules on ‘Probinsyano’ set Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene Jose Altuve and Carlos Correa hit consecutive home runsagainst Josh Fields in the 10th to build a 5-3 Astros lead, with Correa flipping his bat to celebrate.But there was more. Much, much more.“This is an instant classic and to be part of it is pretty special,” Astros starter Justin Verlander said.Puig homered off Ken Giles starting the bottom of the 10th and Enrique Hernandez knotted the score 5-5 with a two-out RBI single .Devenski entered and, with Hernandez at second, made a wild pickoff throw that appeared headed toward left-center field before it struck second base umpire Laz Diaz. An incredulous Hernandez put both hands on his helmet, unable to advance, and was stranded when Chris Taylor flied out.ADVERTISEMENT Jake says relationship with Shaina ‘goes beyond physical attraction’ “We were pretty unlucky at the beginning of the game when Taylor dove in center field and (the ball) hit him in the face or head,” Astros manager A.J. Hinch said. “I felt like the baseball gods were returning the favor, by having an umpire standing in the way there.”Cameron Maybin, who had entered in the 10th, singled leading off the 11th against losing pitcher Brandon McCarthy, a surprise addition to the Dodgers’ World Series roster who was pitching for the first time since Oct. 1. Maybin stole second and Springer hit a drive to right-center for a 7-5 lead, just the third 11th-inning home run in the Series after shots by Kirby Puckett in 1991 and David Freese in 2011.Springer, an All-Star leadoff man, broke out of his slump with three hits and a walk after going 0 for 4 with four strikeouts in the Series opener Tuesday. His decisive drive made the Astros the first team to hit three extra-inning home runs in a postseason game.Devenski retired Corey Seager and Justin Turner on lineouts in the bottom half. Puig checked his swing on a 2-2 pitch — the Astros jumped when first base umpire Gerry Davis signaled no swing—and Puig fouled off two more. Devenski threw his fifth straight changeup, and Puig swung over it as the Astros ran onto the field to celebrate after finally closing out a back-and-forth game that lasted 4 hours, 19 minutes.“It was an emotional roller coaster,” said Dodgers manager Dave Roberts, who removed starter Rich Hill after he threw only 60 pitches in four solid innings and struck out seven.After another steamy night in a Santa Ana heat wave, the series shifts to Texas and resumes Friday night at Houston’s Minute Maid Park, where the retractable roof has not been open for a game since June 9. Lance McCullers Jr. starts for the Astros and Yu Darvish for the Dodgers, who acquired him from Texas at the July 31 trade deadline.Houston is 2-5 on the road in the postseason but 6-0 at home, where the Astros have outscored the Red Sox and Yankees by a combined 31-7.“We didn’t expect these guys to lay down. It’s a very good ballclub over there,” Roberts said. “We’ll be ready to go.”Before Gonzalez’s home run, the Dodgers had an 85 percent chance of winning, according to Fangraphs. After Correa’s long ball, the Astros were a 93 percent favorite.Verlander, wearing an undershirt, entered the dugout at one point and screamed at his teammates that the game was not over.

OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ‘a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Afterward, players were exhausted.“When that last out is made, you finally breathe,” Springer said. “That’s an emotional high—emotional high to low to high again. But that’s why we play the game. And that’s the craziest game that I’ve ever played in. And it’s only Game 2.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next It’s too early to present Duterte’s ‘legacy’ – Lacson Tensions creeping in at PSG as questions asked of two stars Jo Koy: My brain always wants to think funny Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Shirat Nelwadda, a 24-year-old Ugandan woman accused of smuggling drugs into Liberia, will shortly be flown back to her home country, where she is expected to serve her four-year sentence.She was sentenced to four years of imprisonment on Monday, April 14, by Judge Blamo Dixon of Criminal Court ‘C’ at the Temple of Justice, after he confirmed and affirmed a unanimous guilty verdict brought down against her by the trial’s jury on April 7.Nelwadda was charged with multiple crimes; ranging from unlawful possession, trafficking and distribution of 1.2 kilograms of narcotic drugs valued at US$30,000 by the government, a charge she denies.Announcing her sentence on Monday, Judge Dixon said, “It is the candid opinion of Criminal Court ‘C’ for Montserrado County, the Republic of Liberia, that the unanimous guilty verdict of the trial jury brought down against defendant Shirat Nelwadda for the alleged commission of the crime of unlawful possession, trafficking and distribution of narcotic drugs is hereby confirmed and affirmed.”He further declared, “She is hereby adjudged guilty of the said crime, and further sentenced to imprisonment for a period of four consecutive years with immediate effect,” adding, “The defendant is hereby ordered to be deported from Republic of Liberia through diplomatic channels for her to serve her sentence in the Republic of Uganda.”He quoted the law by saying, “Any person who sells narcotic drugs without the written prescription of a physician, dentist; or veterinarian, except as otherwise provided by the provisions, shall be guilty of felony of the first 1trse454 degree.”He continued: “It shall be unlawful for any person to possess or have under his control any narcotic drugs except as authorized by Title 33, Chapter 41, Section 41.23, Sub-section 1 and 2, Section 41.24 Sub-section 1 of the Public Health Law of the Republic of Liberia.”Before Nelwadda was sentenced, her lawyers during the entire case pleaded with the court to have her sent back to her country, Uganda, which they said would make it easier for her family to have access to her.She was arrested on November 30, after she left Kampala, the capital city of Uganda and arrived at the Roberts International Airport (RIA) through Kenya Airways Flight number 508.It was during security checking at the RIA that a parcel believed to contain the 1.2 kilograms of narcotics valued at US$30,000 was found in her travelling bag.It was taken to the headquarters of the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), and tested, apparently in her absence.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
─ at Vreed-en-HoopTwenty-year-old Safraz Mkeed is now a patient at the West Demerara Regional Hospital (WDRH), while his colleague, identified only as Timothy, was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital (GPHC) to receive attention for the more severe injuries he sustained when they both came in contact with a high voltage electric cable at a construction site in Vreed-en-Hoop, West Coast Demerara on Sunday, and were thrown off the 3-storey building they were working on.Eyewitness reports detail that the incident occurred at around 10:30hrs, while a number of men were working on constructing a shopping mall located next to the Republic Bank branch (RBL) at Stelling Road, Vreed-en-Hoop, WCD.This publication understands that the duo were at the time working around the edge of the upper flat of the building when Mkeed stumbled on high voltage cables attached to a nearby Guyana Power & Light (GPL) electricity pole and was thrown against his colleague at the edge of the building. The impact caused Timothy to lose balance, and both men went tumbling from the 3rd flood.Injured: Safraz MkeedThe three-storey building at Vreed-en-Hoop from which the two construction workers fellMkeed somehow managed to land on the 2nd flood, but Timothy tumbled all the way to the ground.The two construction workers were instantly rushed to the West Demerara Regional Hospital in a bus being operated by the RBL. There it was determined that Mkeed had sustained a minor laceration to his head and several electric burns about his body. His colleague Timothy, however, sustained a broken arm, fractured ribs, and other injuries.Mkeed remains under observation at the WCD medical institution, while Timothy has been transferred to the GPHC in light of the severity of his condition.When the Guyana Times visited the scene of the accident on Sunday, the workers had already been sent away. Nevertheless, this newspaper managed to speak to Mkeed while he was receiving treatment. He detailed that he had been labouring at the site for about 6 months, and that the incomplete structure is intended to house a business establishment.Meanwhile, ranks of the Vreed-en-Hoop Police Station have said that a formal report is yet to be made to them concerning the incident, despite the outpost being 2 doors away from where the incident had occurred. In fact, the officers on duty pointed out that they were at the time housing a prisoner and were unable to leave him unattended to rush to the scene.As such, it is uncertain whether a police investigation has been launched.

Is it possible that the Kings might have an audience with the queen this fall? Team sources said Monday that the Kings will play the first two games of the 2007-08 season in London, likely against the Ducks. The trip would mark the NHL’s first venture into Europe. Anschutz Entertainment Group, the Kings’ parent company, is redeveloping an arena in London that is scheduled to open in July, and AEG’s international reach in the sporting world is well known. In addition to its well-documented import of David Beckham to the Galaxy, AEG also controls five professional hockey teams in Europe and a share of a soccer team in Sweden. Historically, hockey hasn’t made much of an impact in England. The country did not qualify for the Olympic men’s tournament although Great Britain does have a 10-team professional league that includes teams from England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. One published report indicated the Kings’ potential partner in the London venture could be the Ducks, who played two games in Tokyo against the Vancouver Canucks at the start of the 1997-98 season. San Jose and Calgary played the next year in Tokyo, but international NHL games have not been played since. The NBA has been perhaps the most proactive about promoting its sport internationally, most recently when the Clippers conducted their training camp in Moscow before this season. The weariness of international travel has been cited as one reason the Clippers have struggled this season, but it’s likely that the Kings would have at least a week of rest before they resumed their season. – Rich Hammond Details are still scarce and no official announcement has been made. The tentative plan is for the Kings to split their training-camp time between Los Angeles and London, open the season overseas, travel back and have a bit of a rest period before playing games on the East Coast. The travel could cause some concern for the Kings. In recent years, several professional teams have traveled overseas for games or training camps and have complained of a rough adjustment period. But the league would like to expand its international fan base, and the Kings are an obvious choice. Also: Phoenix traded leading scorer Ladislav Nagy to Dallas for left wing Mathias Tjarnqvist and a 2007 first-round draft pick. Nagy has eight goals and 33 assists. … Ottawa goalie Ray Emery was suspended three games by the NHL for slashing Montreal forward Maxim Lapierre. … Enforcer Donald Brashear signed a one-year, $1.1 million extension with Washington, which also lost goaltender Olaf Kolzig for at least three weeks after he hurt his knee during practice. … Philadelphia right wing Sami Kapanen signed a two-year extension through the 2008-09 season. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

A Donegal seaside village has smashed the world sand-castle building record.The residents of Dunfanaghy had to make more than 683 castles in just one hour at Killahoey beach on Saturday afternoon last.But the bucket-busting Donegal sandcastle builders demolished the record by constructing a staggering 1,939 castles in the hour. Organiser Sian McCann said the group must now send a video to the Guinness Book of World Records and hope to get the official record in two months time.“We had a brilliant day and the sun shone down on us which made it just perfect.“We must have had more than 400 volunteers taking part including kids from the playschool, the five local national schools, as well as people from the boxing club, the soccer club, the badminton club, the Irish dancing club and many more.“It will take a few weeks to get official confirmation and we have to send them a video of the day but we’re confident we have done it,” she said. Sian said she was also hoping to individual certificates for all those who took part in the world-record attempt.

He said the company has also moved to acquire property along San Fernando Road. Target officials did not return calls seeking comment, and a Federated official would not confirm if the company is in talks with Target. Federated has been selling Robinsons-May stores following its 2005 merger with May Department Stores. “We have stores across the country we’re working on and talking to various parties, and when we have announcements to make, we make them,” said Jim Sluzewski, Federated’s vice president of corporate communications and external affairs. “As Federated has previously indicated, they will close the Robinsons-May site at the Glendale Galleria,” said Arthur V. Sohikian, a spokesman for General Growth. “They will also determine the new tenant by their eventual sale.” GLENDALE – A Target store could be the newest big retailer at the Glendale Galleria in a development city officials call “ironic,” since the mall once objected to the chain going into a project next door. Federated Department Stores Inc. is negotiating with Target, and the chain store could buy the space occupied by the shuttered Robinsons-May outlet at the mall, various city officials said Thursday. Federated owns the Robinsons-May space in the Galleria, so it can bring in whatever retailer it wants, no matter what the mall’s owner, General Growth Properties Inc., says. As the Americana at Brand outdoor mall project, which opens next to the Galleria in 2008, was in the planning stages last year, some objected to a proposal to anchor the project with a Target store, arguing it wasn’t high-end enough.
