Barbados Women too hot for Jamaica

first_img At Sion Hill, former Windies captain Merissa Aguilleira played a key role as Trinidad and Tobago bounced back from their first-round loss to inflict a six-wicket defeat on Guyana. The right-handed Aguilleira controlled the defending champions’ run chase with an unbeaten 30 as they overhauled a paltry target of 83. Aguilleira faced 50 deliveries and counted four boundaries. Caneisha Isaac had earlier taken four for 22 from eight overs to wreck Guyana for 83 all out off 42.4 overs. She was supported by West Indies Women off-spinner Anisa Mohammed, who collected three for 15. In the other game at Park Hill, Twenty20 World Cup star Afy Fletcher produced a solid all-rounder performance to help Windward Islands brush aside Leeward Islands by 75 runs. She struck 29 in the Windwards’ 179 all out off 41.1 overs and returned to take three for 23 as the Leewards were bowled out for 104 off 36.2 overs. KINGSTOWN, St Vincent (CMC): Teenaged West Indies batting star Hayley Matthews made her presence felt, stroking an unbeaten half-century to fire Barbados to a comfortable seven-wicket win over Jamaica in the second round of the Women’s Regional Super50 here yesterday. Set a meagre 88 for victory at the Arnos Vale Stadium, Barbados romped home in the 24th over with the right-handed Matthews carving out a delightful 56 not out. Kycia Knight fell cheaply for five in the fifth over with the score on 20, but 19-year-old Matthews partnered with Reshelle Griffith (14) to add 40 for the second wicket and take Barbados to the brink of victory. Matthews struck 10 fours in her 73-ball knock. There was no such enterprise from West Indies Women’s skipper Stafanie Taylor, who was dismissed without scoring as Jamaica, sent in, were bowled out for 87 off 34.1 overs. Her Windies teammate, Chedean Nation, top-scored with 17, but it was medium pacer Deandra Dottin who shone, ripping through the innings with a spell of four for 22. Fast bowler Shakera Selman, who has also played for West Indies, claimed two for 17. AGUILLEIRA PLAYED KEY ROLElast_img read more

Portugal slump to 3-0 loss against the Netherlands in Geneva

(KEYSTONE/Salvatore Di Nolfi/Keystone via AP)GENEVA (AP) — Portugal was made to pay for a weak first-half display as the Netherlands cruised to a 3-0 win in a friendly on Monday.Cristiano Ronaldo’s evening barely improved after a rough challenge early on by Dutch defender Tonny Vilhena.

It finished off a sweeping Dutch counterattack which saw Van Dijk surge forward in support.De Ligt went deep into the Portugal defense to create the next two goals, first firing a powerful cross from near the byline that Babel met unmarked with a header.In his next foray, De Ligt met a free kick with a looped header to tee up Van Dijk, and the Liverpool player fired a shot across the goalmouth into the corner of the net.Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Nadine Lustre’s phone stolen in Brazil In Liverpool, Man United sees the pain and path to recovery LATEST STORIES Recto seeks to establish Taal rehab body to aid community, eruption victims MOST READ Judy Ann’s 1st project for 2020 is giving her a ‘stomachache’ “We were much more comfortable on the ball and scored first,” Koeman said. “That gave us a little bit of confidence.”Two goals were assisted by teenage defender Matthijs De Ligt, and his fellow 18-year-old from Ajax, Justin Kluivert, made his international debut as a substitute late in the game.Though Portugal exited the Confederations Cup semifinals in a penalty shootout against Chile in June, this was its first defeat inside 90 minutes since gifting Sweden a 3-2 comeback win in a friendly one year ago.In fact, Portugal has lost a friendly in March for four straight years under Santos.“Two years ago before the Euros we lost at home to Bulgaria and I didn’t lose confidence in the players,” the coach said.ADVERTISEMENT View comments Scarlett Johansson, Sterling K.

“Mango Man’s” wife, daughter testify

first_img“Smallie”, Nero murder trial As the 2007 “Mango Man” murder trial continues at the Demerara High Court, the wife and daughter of deceased Kumar Singh called “Mango Man” recalled the harrowing night bandits stormed their Cove and John, East Coast Demerara (ECD) premises during which Singh was shot and later died. The two accused, Mark Royden “Smallie” Williams and Sherwin Nero called “Catty” were indicted on allegations that they were involved in the August 30, 2007, murder during the course or in the furtherance of a robbery at the ECD man’s home. They have, however, denied the State’s case.Indroutie Singh, wife of Kumar Singh recalled that her sister and her family were visiting from Suriname and were drinking a few shots of rum on the night of the attack. Singh told the jury that she heard a gunshot and someone said: “Pass what y’all get.” She recalled being in the lower flat of their two-storied home when she reportedly saw two men standing in front of her sister-in-law’s husband and her own husband whom she claimed was wearing several gold rings at the time.The woman further testified to hearing a man ask her daughter for her mother then several gunshots rang out. Afterwards, she said the men ran downstairs and fled the scene and she then saw her husband was shot and without his rings. Kumar was rushed to Georgetown Public Hospital in a police vehicle and he later died. She said she then returned to the institution’s mortuary where she identified his remains.Their daughter, Deoranie Singh, who was a teenager at the time testified to hearing “terrible gunshots” and later seeing her father in blood. She said the bandits asked for jewellery and the $7 million the family was keeping. She, however, noted that she told them that no one kept that amount and repeated that they had no money to hand over.“We keep telling them ‘no, we don’t have money’ and they keep insisting that ‘yes we have it’”.She said that their wardrobe upstairs was shot at and a male had lashed her causing her nose to bleed. It was after the men fled that she ran to her father, held him and screamed. The two accused men’s attorney, Nigel Hughes, declined to cross-examine the two witnesses.It was earlier in the week that Police Detective, Inspector Suraj Singh claimed that the duo, upon being captured in 2008, admitted under caution that an ex-Police accomplice was the one who transported them from the scene via a horse cart. The matter continues before Justice James Bovell-Drakes in a case being prosecuted by State Counsel Tamica Clarke.last_img read more

first_imgA man stole a hearse and then abducted his teenage daughter and her friend and brought them to Donegal.Jonathon Ayton took them across the border and drove around at high speeds with them in the vehicle for up to 12 hours, the High Court in the North has heard.It was also alleged he told the girls to take the Sim cards from their mobile phones during the overnight incident. A judge was told that Mr Ayton, 36, of Bonds Hill, Derry, is to be prosecuted for two counts of child abduction.He has also been charged with a “plethora” of motoring offences, including taking the hearse, dangerous driving and having no insurance.Mr Ayton was refused bail due to the risk of further offending and concerns he may not turn up for trial.The court heard the hearse was taken from outside a funeral director’s at an undisclosed location in the city in September 2010.Although no coffin was in the vehicle, Kate McKay, prosecuting, said: “It was being loaded at the time it was stolen.”She claimed the vehicle was driven erratically and then used to collect both Mr Ayton’s daughter and her friend the same night.Mr Ayton then drove them into the Republic of Ireland, with the girls believing he had either been drinking or taking drugs, according to the prosecution.Mrs McKay said the two friends asked to go home but were not returned until the following morning.“The girls were said to be extremely upset by the whole incident,” she told the court.“That part in the Republic of Ireland is under investigation by gardai.”She added that PSNI officers who were alerted to events surrounding the incident were informed Mr Ayton had gone off in “an unusual looking car”.A defence barrister argued that the accused should be released on bail due to the delays in the case.He said the decision to prosecute for child abduction was only now being disclosed.“There has been no explanation whatsoever for the delay in this,” the barrister added.Mr Justice Hart acknowledged the length of time the case has taken was unsatisfactory.But refusing the application, the judge said: “I’m entirely satisfied that if admitted to bail there is a very grave risk he would not turn up and would abscond.”MAN STOLE HEARSE BEFORE ABDUCTING DAUGHTER AND DRIVING HER TO DONEGAL was last modified: October 12th, 2011 by StephenShare 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:donegalhearseJonathon Aytonlast_img read more

first_imgFormer Kerry legend and RTE pundit Pat Spillane has said watching Donegal play is like watching paint dry.The outspoken commentator, who famously labeled Ulster football as “puke football’, launched another attack on Jim McGuinness’ men in his Sunday World newspaper column.But as well as slating Donegal, Spillane admits that he also admires Michael Murphy and co. Spillane used last weekend’s Ulster Final victory over Monaghan to judge Donegal.“There are people out there who enjoy watching paint dry. Then there are masochists who love having pain inflicted on them.“Unless you fit into either of these categories I don’t see how you could have enjoyed watching the first half of the Ulster Final. “It was dire, ultra defensive, negative and nasty,” he said.However he added “Having said that, one could only sit back and admire Donegal. They gave a masterclass in defensive play and work ethic.“The non-stop running play of the Donegal players was unbelievable.”He said that while he still believed the Donegal team of last year were “running on empty’ he believes that has changed.“They’re different this year – hungrier, sharper and working harder,” he said.And then he asked himself if Donegal are good enough to win the All Ireland saying he would love to see them meet Dublin in the semi-final. “I’m not so sure. I don’t think they are as god as they were in 2012. So I wouldn’t get carried away yet.“But Donegal have a system and it will test Dublin if they clash in the semi-final. I would love for this game to happen.“But if the game transpires, the key question is whether they can hold their blanket defense in place for the entire duration of the match when faced by Dublin’s unbelievable pace,” he added.SPILLANE: WATCHING DONEGAL PLAY IS LIKE WATCHING PAINT DRY, BUT THEN……! was last modified: July 27th, 2014 by StephenShare 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:all-irelanddonegalGAAJim McGuinnessPat Spillanelast_img read more

Half-time: Tottenham 3 QPR 0

first_imgNacer Chadli scored twice as Tottenham were gifted a commanding lead in a one-sided derby at White Hart Lane. Eric Dier also netted in a first-half in which promoted QPR’s showing was strikingly similar to the kind of abject displays they produced when last in the Premier League.The north London side went ahead in the 12th minute, capitalising after Loic Remy had lost possession.Emmanuel Adebayor crossed from the right and Chadli was able to slam the ball past exposed keeper Rob Green from six yards out.A Spurs goal had been on the cards – Eric Lamela saw a shot deflected wide following a mistake by R’s wide-man Armand Traore before Adebayor headed over.The visitors, with recent signings Leroy Fer and Mauricio Isla making their debuts, struggled to create anything before Matt Phillips missed a golden chance to equalise against the run of play.Phillips, playing in the absence of Charlie Austin, who has a hamstring problem, latched on to Joey Barton’s ball over the top only to fire over with just keeper Hugo Lloris to beat.But Tottenham were otherwise in complete control and Christian Eriksen rattled the Rangers bar with a 25-yard free-kick shortly before Dier scored on the half-hour mark.Inexplicably, Fer allowed Dier to get away from him and the England Under-21 international was able to head in from Lamela’s corner.Yet more half-hearted Rangers defending led to the third goal seven minutes later, Chadli heading home after being set up by Lamela. QPR: Green; Caulker, Ferdinand, Dunne; Isla, Barton, Fer, Mutch, Traore; Phillips, Remy.Subs: Murphy, Wright-Phillips, Simpson, Onuoha, Faurlin, Hoilett, Zamora.Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
