STETHS blank Black River in ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: St  Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) forward, Jovoney Brown, netted his seventh goal in as many matches and Demar James fired home a brace as the defending champions slammed Black River High 3-0 in yesterday’s Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW daCosta Cup football match at Black River High. Brown was on target from the penalty spot in the ninth minute, while James scored in the 21st and 34th minutes of a game thoroughly dominated by the champions, who hardly needed to break a sweat in handing Black River their sixth loss. The win takes STETHS up to 15 points from seven matches, with Lacovia High and Munro College battling for the next automatic qualifying spot. Black River will now be playing for pride. The only bright spark for Black River was the Rene Higuita-styled outfield play by their goalkeeper, Davian Gayle, who looked more comfortable with the ball at his feet than standing between the sticks. Gayle has now conceded 13 goals in all against STETHS alone this season and as a team, the Kirk Williams-coached Black River has seen 34 goals hit the back of their net, while they have scored a mere four times so far.last_img read more

Chelsea drop Costa amid rift, unsettling Chinese interest

first_imgLONDON (AP): Diego Costa’s Chelsea career could be coming to a fiery abrupt end, in a setback to the English Premier League leaders’ pursuit of the title. The league top-scorer has not travelled with Chelsea to Leicester following a dispute with the coaching staff, and won’t be playing in today’s game against the champions, a person familiar with the situation told The Associated Press. The person spoke on condition of anonymity yesterday because they were not authorised to discuss Costa being dropped from the team. The discord between Antonio Conte’s side and Costa follows the striker becoming aware of interest from China, the person said, referencing the country’s wealthy and ambitious Super League. The Daily Mail newspaper’s website first reported yesterday that the dispute was over whether Costa was injured. The Daily Telegraph newspaper reported online that Costa is aware of a Chinese club willing to pay him more than $30 million a year, but Chelsea is determined to hold onto its most influential player. The Spain international, who joined Chelsea from Atletico Madrid in 2014, has 14 goals in the league this season and is under contract until 2019. Costa has been a vital component in Chelsea’s revival after the team went from champions to an 11th-place finish last season. Chelsea have a five-point lead over Liverpool after their 13-match winning streak was ended by Tottenham in the team’s last league game. Chelsea have already sold two players – John Obi Mikel and Oscar – to Chinese Super League clubs in the last month. Chelsea made 60 million pounds ($73 million) just from Shanghai SIPG for Oscar. Despite the windfall, Conte said he hoped the club would not lose any more players to Chinese clubs, which spent more than $600 million on foreign players in 2016. “The Chinese market is a danger for all,” Conte said last month, “not only for Chelsea, but all the teams in the world.”last_img read more

The Ronaldo show! – CR7 leads Real Madrid to big UCL win … Monaco, Juve clash today

first_img DISAPPOINTMENT MADRID, Spain (AP): Another impressive performance by Cristiano Ronaldo has left Real Madrid on the verge of another Champions League final. Ronaldo scored a hat-trick to reach 400 goals with Madrid and lead the defending champions to a commanding 3-0 win over city rivals Atletico Madrid in the first leg of their Champions League semifinal yesterday. He scored with a header in the 10th minute, with a strike into the top corner in the 73rd and a close-range shot in the 86th to give Madrid a comfortable lead going into next week’s second leg at Atletico’s Vicente Calderon Stadium. Monaco host Juventus in the first leg of the other semi-final today. “We played a great match,” Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane said. “It’s not easy to score three times against such a difficult opponent and keep a clean sheet.” The result left Atletico close to yet another disappointing elimination against the cross-town rivals, following defeats in the Champions League in the last three seasons. “We’re going to try and do something practically impossible next week,” Atletico coach Diego Simeone said. “We’re Atletico Madrid and maybe, just maybe, we can do it.” Madrid, which are looking to reach their third final in four seasons, were in control from the start at the Santiago Bernabeu Stadium and took advantage of Ronaldo’s impressive form. He had scored five in the two legs of the quarterfinals against Bayern Munich, including a hat-trick in the second leg at the Bernabeu. “The team was amazing, it was a complete match,” said Ronaldo, who reached the 400-goal milestone in his 389th game with Madrid. “We played well from start to finish.” He opened the scoring yesterday after Atletico’s defence failed to fully clear a cross into the area. Midfielder Casemiro sent the ball back in with a bouncing shot and Ronaldo got ahead of defender Stefan Savic to nod it past Atletico goalkeeper Jan Oblak. Ronaldo, Madrid’s all-time scoring leader, added to the lead after Atletico defender Filipe Luis lost the ball in a challenge with the Portugal star, who entered the area and fired a right-foot shot past Oblak into the upper corner. He scored his 10th Champions League goal of the season with a low shot from inside the area after a pass by Lucas Vazquez. Ronaldo now has 103 goals in the Champions League, not counting one he scored in the qualifiers, which is three more than Atletico have scored since the new format was created in 1992.last_img read more

Curry misses cut, still impresses golf’s best

It’s a lot of pressure, and he exceeded my expectations.”Zach Johnson, a two-time major champion, said he has a friend who knows Curry and said he was a good player. The score in the first round was enough to make a believer out of Johnson.“Clearly, he is,” Johnson said. “I don’t know that golf course. Someone said they shoot pretty low there often, but it doesn’t matter. You’ve still got to put the ball in the hole. First round as an amateur in a professional tournament? That’s pretty good.”Johnson vaguely recalled the time Jerry Rice, the Hall of Fame receiver for the San Francisco 49ers, played in the tournament. Rice shot 90.“He’s a good athlete.

It was pretty cool — really cool — to see.
