Scorpions suffer crushing defeat

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC):Barbados Pride needed just 54 minutes to wrap up an uncomplicated 10-wicket triumph over Jamaica Scorpions and make a strong start to their Regional First Class Championship campaign here yesterday.They picked up the last two Scorpions wickets for the addition of only 26 runs in just over half-hour, as the visitors were dismissed for 187 in their second innings, and then scored the required four runs to complete the victory at Kensington Oval.They secured 17 points for their efforts, while Scorpions walked away with a single point.Resuming the day on 161 for two, Scorpions would have entertained thoughts of saving the game after heavy rains here delayed the start by 11/2 hours.Once the skies cleared, however, fast-bowler Kemar Roach swiftly removed Jason Dawes (nine) and Marquino Mindley (13) to end the Scorpions’ innings.Pride then needed three overs to knock off the required runs. Captain Kraigg Brathwaite was voted Man of the Match for his first-innings score of 119.Jaguars stun WindwardsAT GUYANA NATIONAL STADIUM: Left-arm pacer Raymon Reifer and off-spinner Steven Jacobs shared eight wickets as defending champions Guyana Jaguars stunned Windward Islands Volcanoes to pull off an emphatic 104-run victory here yesterday.Requiring an uncomplicated 230 for victory on the final day, the Volcanoes folded meekly for 125. They were undermined by Jacobs, who claimed four for 35, and Reifer, who picked up four for 41, as the visitors slumped to 76 for seven at lunch.Miles Bascome top-scored with 38, and captain Liam Sebastien got 36, but were the only two batsmen to pass 15 and only two of four to get into double figures.AT WARNER PARK: Trinidad and Tobago Red Force crushed hapless Leeward Islands Hurricanes by an innings and 23 runs inside three days, to make a superb start to the Regional Four Day Championship here on Sunday.

After 2 lopsided losses to Thunder, Durant leads Warriors rout

Man United 1-2 Arsenal: Welbeck’s winner dumps former side out of the FA Cup

first_imgDanny Welbeck came back to haunt former club Manchester United with the winning goal as Arsenal ran out 2-1 winners in their FA Cup quarter-final clash at Old Trafford.It was a lively tie between the two Premier League giants, in which the Red Devils – who had Angel di Maria sent off for pushing the referee – were punished for a horrible defensive blunder which gifted the Gunners the win.Arsenal took the lead after 25 minutes through full-back Nacho Monreal but United responded immediately, with Wayne Rooney pulling his side level with a wonderful diving header.The end-to-end contest continued after the break with the game there for the taking, but it took a mistake from Antonio Valencia for Arsene Wenger’s side to claim the winner, with the wing-back’s poor back-pass pounced upon by Welbeck, who darted around David de Gea to send his side to Wembley.It was a frantic, end-to-end encounter with both sides enjoying decent attacking spells throughout the clash.The tempo was set right from the first whistle, with Alexis Sanchez breezing past Antonio Valencia on the left before seeing a low, stinging shot saved by De Gea.Ashley Young was next to go close at the other end, the winger stretching to meet Marouane Fellaini’s cross but sending his effort wide.It then turned into a very scrappy affair, with both sides seemingly unable to control the ball, and a mistake in midfield from United allowed the Gunners to take the lead through an unlikely goalscorer.Mesut Ozil, who was given acres of space to run in to the edge of the box, flicked a pass out wide to Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who then cut inside and beat three defenders before drilling a pass across the goal to find Monreal, with the full-back slotting past De Gea at his near post.But the hosts mustered an instant response – and in fine style too – as Rooney beat Wojciech Szczesny with a brilliant diving header from Di Maria’s in-swinging cross.United then escaped a penalty appeal when Welbeck went down in the box under pressure from Marcos Rojo, but the hosts were close to going in front on the stroke of half-time when Di Maria latched on to Valencia’s chipped pass into the area but saw his angled volley well parried by Szczesny.Louis van Gaal made two changes at the break, with Phil Jones replacing Luke Shaw and Michael Carrick coming on for Ander Herrera, who can’t seem to catch a break with the manager.But the change through the middle only seemed to make United’s defences even more vulnerable, and they might have been beaten more comprehensively if it weren’t for Arsenal’s hesitance.The Gunners had a host of chances on the counter-attack, bursting through three-on-two at times, but often stalled the final pass, which in-turn gave United time to track back and snuff out the move.De Gea also pulled of two top class stops to deny Arsenal in the second-half, first stretching to save Sanchez’s deflected strike and then managing to scoop Santi Cazorla’s well-struck volley off the line.But the star Spaniard was left helpless by his hapless back-four moments later as a horror show display saw the Londoners go in front for the second time on the hour-mark.It’s not often players celebrate against their former sides, but Welbeck seemed untroubled by the boos after Valencia’s misjudgement allowed him to dive in, dink past the oncoming De Gea and tap home with the goal at his mercy.And it only got worse for United, who found themselves a man down with 15 minutes left when record signing Di Maria was shown two yellow cards in the space of 30 seconds, first for diving and then for grabbing hold of the referee’s shirt.The hosts were desperate for a way back into the game, with substitute Adnan Januzaj booked for diving in his attempt to win a late penalty, but Arsenal managed to close out the victory as their quest to defend the cup continues.

CONCERN AS ANOTHER LETTERKENNY BUSINESS CLOSES ITS DOORS

first_imgOne of Letterkenny’s most iconic businesses has closed its doors in recent days.The shutters have remained down on the famous Bakersville restaurant at Church Lane in the Cathedral Town.The business, which was opened more than 15 years ago by the local Keeney family, was a hugely popular meeting place for many people. Last night a source close to the shop said “We’re not sure why it closed. Hopefully it will open again because the staff were so friendly and the food was great.“We’re just hoping it has not become another victim of the recession like so many other shops before it.“Bakersville was all that was good about Letterkenny and Donegal. Hopefully it hasn’t closed for good because it will be sorely missed if it had,” he said.    CONCERN AS ANOTHER LETTERKENNY BUSINESS CLOSES ITS DOORS was last modified: December 16th, 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:Bakersvilleletterkennylast_img read more

Slain state prisoner was in protective area

first_imgLANCASTER – A state prison inmate found in his cell with his throat cut was identified as a 36-year-old murderer who lived in a section of the prison set aside for inmates who might be in danger from other prisoners. Richard Ponton had been at California State Prison Los Angeles County for nearly six years. “He was found in the cell under his bed wrapped in a bed sheet,” prison spokesman Lt. Ken Lewis said Wednesday. Prison officers found Ponton, a laceration in his throat, after an inmate called “man down” just after 11 a.m. Tuesday. “Man down” is a term commonly used by inmates to indicate various kinds of problems, Lewis said. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Ponton was pronounced dead by a prison doctor. Cellmate Christopher Bass, a 32-year-old convicted robber and child molester from Ventura County serving a 60-year sentence, was placed in administration segregation as a suspect in Ponton’s slaying. Lewis said he did not know whether Bass was in the cell when Ponton was found. Ponton was serving a life sentence without possibility of parole for murder on a Los Angeles County conviction. Sheriff’s homicide detectives were called in to investigate. Lewis said reasons why inmates are placed in the “special needs” section are confidential. In some cases, inmates might have dropped out of a gang and be in danger from its members, or they might be in jeopardy for conviction of crimes such as child molesting. This is the prison’s second slaying in a month. About 2 a.m. Jan. 2, convicted arsonist and child molester Robert Painter, 59, was found beaten to death in his cell in the same “special needs” section. He also was wrapped in a sheet, which might be an attempt to conceal the body, Lewis said. Painter’s cellmate, Michael Andrews, 41, who is serving a 25 years to life sentence as a “three strikes, you’re out” repeat offender, was the only other person in the cell. Andrews was placed in administrative segregation. Inmates’ movements in the prison’s Facility C section have been restricted in what is called a “modified program” because of the latest slaying. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DUNPHY CLAIMS ‘OVERWEIGHT’ GIVEN SHOULD NOT COME BACK

first_imgControversial soccer pundit Eamon Dunphy has said Shay Given should not wear the Irish number one jersey again.The RTE analyst claims he cannot forgive the Lifford man for appearing overweight and unfit during the European Championships.He says that was an unforgivable crime and that Republic of Ireland manager Giovanni Trapattoni must move on in his choice of goalkeeper. Dunphy’s claims are set to lead to a serious backlash from many fans across Donegal who recently welcomed Shay’s decision to rethink his retirement.Dunphy said Keiren Westwood should remain as Ireland’s number one goalkeeper after Given’s retirement.“Given is not in the Villa team and I think we have to be respectful of Westwood, who is the number one goalkeeper.“I think Given looked overweight and was clearly unfit during the European Championships. I don’t think that’s a forgivable crime. I wouldn’t have him,” said Dunphy. Loyal Given, 36, retired from international duty after the summer tournament in Poland, where Ireland conceded nine goals in three games.He finally confirmed at the weekend that he has made himself available for selection to the Republic of Ireland.Despite Aston Villa dropping into the Premier League relegation zone, Given has been out of favour with boss Paul Lambert, making just two league appearances so far this season.Westwood has also been sitting on the bench at Sunderland, making just three appearances in total, all coming in the league cup.DUNPHY CLAIMS ‘OVERWEIGHT’ GIVEN SHOULD NOT COME BACK was last modified: January 15th, 2013 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:goalkeeperRepublic of IrelandShay Givenlast_img read more
