McCarthy, Campbell combine to put Scorpions ahead

first_img TOP ORDER WRECKED Opener Kjorn Ottley hit 31, and first-innings century-maker Jeremy Solozano, 19, but Campbell claimed four for 35 to wreck the top order. Captain Yannick Ottley, unbeaten on 10, and Yannic Cariah, eight, will lead Red Force’s fight on the final day. They looked to be batting themselves into a strong position when Ottley stroked five fours in an innings consuming 81 balls in nearly one and a half hours at the crease. Once Solozano fell after an hour at the crease, the innings spiralled into turmoil. Barbadian Kyle Hope perished, without scoring, to the fourth ball he faced before Kjorn Ottley was taken at cover by Damion Jacobs to leave Red Force on 56 for three. With much depending on seasoned left-hander Narsingh Deonarine, Campbell struck yet again, having the Guyanese stumped for 14 to leave Scorpions on top. Earlier, it was McCarthy who provided the early momentum for the visitors in a superb 149-run, fourth-wicket stand with former skipper Tamar Lambert, who made 45. All told, McCarthy struck 16 fours off 180 deliveries in an innings lasting just over three and three-quarter hours. Lambert, meanwhile, on 12 at the start, batted solidly for 191 balls and 217 minutes and gathered four boundaries. McCarthy eventually fell in the third over before lunch, which Scorpions reached at 228 for four, but a collapse ensued on resumption, with wickets falling steadily. Wicketkeeper Chadwick Walton then held the innings together with an unbeaten 33 as Scorpions rallied to a small first-innings lead. PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Andre McCarthy stroked a brilliant, maiden first-class hundred, and part-time off-spinner John Campbell snapped up four wickets as Jamaica Scorpions rocked Trinidad and Tobago Red Force to take a giant step towards victory on today’s final day of their third-round encounter in the Regional First Class Championship. The right-handed McCarthy converted his overnight 49 not out into 121 as Scorpions, resuming from 119 for three, posted 291 all out for a lead of 20 runs at Queen’s Park Oval yesterday. Leg-spinner Imran Khan led the Red Force attack, finishing with seven for 90 to register his 13th five-wicket haul in first-class cricket. Red Force then easily erased the deficit, coasting to 49 without loss before Campbell engineered a collapse to leave the hosts tottering on 87 for four at the close – a lead of only 67.last_img read more

#JaVotes2016: JLP victory!

first_img Holness, who defeated the PNP’s Patrick Roberts to retain his St Andrew West Central seat, will be joined in Parliament by his wife Juliet, who defeated Imani Duncan – Price to secure the St Andrew East Rural constituency. PNP’s deputy general secretary Julian Robinson said: “We have clearly lost a number of seats but the overall picture is very close so we will wait on the final figures.” Asked if the PNP has been taken by surprise, Robinson said, “We knew a number of seats were close but we obviously never expected to lose that many.” “We knew there were some marginals but we expected to win some of the marginals,” he added. The PNP leadership is expected to concede shortly in front of a small, somber crowd at the party’s Old Hope Road headquarters. The Jamaica Labour Party (JLP) will be declared winner of the 2016 General Elections after unseating the People’s National Party (PNP) at today’s polls. JLP party leader Andrew Holness arrived at the party’s Belmont Road headquarters a short while ago, where he was greeted by a large and jubilant crowd of party supporters.last_img read more

Brilliant Edwin Allen! – Two three-peats for Clarendon-based girls

first_imgPHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania: Edwin Allen High’s girls were brilliant on yesterday’s penultimate day of competition at the 122nd renewal of the Penn Relays in Philadelphia yesterday. The Clarendon-based school had two three-peats as they captured the 4x100m and 4x400m for the third consecutive year at the prestigious relay carnival. Unlike Thursday’s opening day when it was very cold, things warmed up yesterday and this lifted the performances. Despite coming into the finals of the 4×100 metres as the second-fastest qualifiers behind Holmwood Technical, Edwin Allen had few problems in achieving victory. They shrugged off early pressure from first-time finalists St Catherine High on the first two legs. Then the classy Shellece Clarke on the third leg put her team into the lead. Khamoy Farquharson on anchor then coasted home as Edwin Allen clocked to win in 45.73 seconds. St Catherine finished second in 46.11, with Nansemond River out of Virginia third in 46.26. Holmwood were fifth in 46.66 and Green Island seventh in 47.85. The other members of the winning Edwin Allen team were Kasheika Cameron and Patrice Moodie. Coach Dyke hailed his girls as before the race, he had told them that winning was the main focus. “Based on the preliminary round, we were very confident of victory, and with the type of weather, I told the girls that our main focus was just to win. The time was not important as the objective was for them to get on top of the podium,” said Dyke, who added that his young team could win the event for another three years. UNDERDOGS IN RELAYS After a quiet season, Dyke finally showed his hand in the 4×400 metres. They came to the Relays as underdogs despite retaining three members of last year’s winning team as St Elizabeth Technical, with the hot Junelle Bloomfield on their team, were howling favourites to bring home their first title in the event. However, Dyke silenced the very overconfident St Elizabeth Technical. It was a plucky Holmwood Technical who gave them much to worry about. Holmwood, the record holders in the event, looked like pulling off a win, but their outstanding Ashley Williams fell on the anchor leg and Edwin Allen went on to win in 3:40.88. St Elizabeth Technical was second in 3:41.17, with Union Catholic out of New Jersey third in 3:42.59. Unlucky, Holmwood ended at the back of the field in 4:03.74. Shannon Kalawan, who ran the third leg for her team, was delighted with the win. “We came to Penn Relays as underdogs, but we were very confident that we would have won. I am extremely happy that I played my part by giving the team the lead, and it was good to be on the podium for the second time on the day, and I want to give God thanks for this,” said Kalawan, who finished second in the 400 metres hurdles on Thursday’s opening day. The other members of the team were Joneil Moore and Davia Smith.last_img read more

Scorpions hunt bonus points

first_imgWith no traditional first-innings points on offer, getting as many bowling points as possible will be the primary aim for the Jamaica Scorpions heading into today’s fourth and final day of their Digicel WICB Four-day Championship showdown against front-runner Barbados Pride at Sabina Park.This is according to Jamaica’s head coach, Robert Samuels.The encounter, which has been affected by rain and a waterlogged outfield from the opening day, is currently headed for a draw after Barbados closed the third day on 153 for four in their first innings.This is in reply to 224 posted by Jamaica in their first innings, of which in-form opener John Campbell made 60; all-rounder Derval Green, 40; and captain Nikita Miller, 24 not out.Out-of-favour West Indies fast bowler Kemar Roach, with three for 27, and his new ball partner Justin Greaves, two for 49, claimed most wickets.”There’s no first-innings points, so the bowling and batting points and fast-bowling points, are now important,” said Samuels.”Four wickets down for 150-odd runs, Barbados are a little bit ahead, but we hope to pull it back tomorrow, get the other wickets, get some points, and then look to bat out the day,” he added.Resuming the day on 157 for eight, Jamaica were lifted past the all-important 200-runs landmark, which offers one batting point, by Miller and Green.The duo, who came together after the fall of fast bowler Reynard Leveridge’s wicket with the total on 167, put on 57 runs for the final wicket.Green hit three fours during his 56-balls innings, which lasted one hour and 11 minutes, while Miller gathered two fours off 113 balls during his two hour and 32 minutes stay.”It was a good knock by the skipper, who was not out at the end, and Derval Green, who came in at number 11,” commented Samuels.”Their knocks helped to put us in a decent position where we earned a batting point, which, in recent years, has been very elusive. We just now need maximum bowling points.”AT QUEEN’S PARK OVAL: Trinidad and Tobago Red Force reached 287 for seven in their first innings before rain brought a premature end to the third day of their third-round game against Leeward Islands Hurricanes.Only 35 overs were possible because of rain.Scores: Red Force 287 for seven (Kyle Hope 86, Isaiah Rajah 69, Roshon Primus 42 not out; Kieran Powell 3-29).SCOREBOARDSCORPIONS 1st Innings(overnight 157 for eight)J.

Blackwood only J’can in Windies Test Squad

first_imgJamaica’s Jermaine Blackwood is the only Jamaican named in the West Indies Cricket Board’s 13-member squad for the historic 50th test match at Sabina Park against Pakistan on Friday. Blackwood last played for the West Indies in the third Test against Pakistan in Sharjah in October last year. In that game, he made 27 runs, 23 in the first innings and four in the second inning in the West Indies five wicket win. The squad also includes the uncapped Shimron Hetmyer and Vishual Singh and the returning Kieran Powell. The West Indies selectors said that they included the three for various reasons. Maturity “Shimron has shown a lot of maturity during this season of regional games and also within our ‘A’ team,’ they said in a release. Powell was selected because the panel “felt a need to fast -track him through our ‘A’ team programme last year.” “We are happy that Kieran is once again available as an option for us to open the batting. West Indies cricket has invested heavily in him over the years . Singh was noted to be a consistent batsman in the Regional Four-day tournament. “His hundred over the weekend for the WICB President’s XI against the Pakistanis helped to fortify in our minds that he has a place in our squad.” The remaining squad includes Captain Jason Holder, Devendra Bishoo, Kraigg Brathwaite, Roston Chase, Miguel Cummins, Shane Dowrich, Shannon Gabriel, Shai Hope, and Alzarri Joseph.last_img read more
