Mystery virus postpones upcoming Caymanas Park raceday

first_imgThe Jamaica Racing Commission (JRC) has postponed this Saturday’s race meet at Caymanas Park due to the lack of entries. Clovis Metcalfe, chairman of the JRC, said the meet has been moved to next Wednesday and this was result of a mysterious virus which has been affecting the horses at the track. “It is nothing new because it has happened in the past and the horses have gotten better within a couple of days,” Metcalfe said.”The virus is something that you can’t really pin exactly what it is, but what we can tell is that the horses are eating, but they are running some temperature of a 103 to 104 degrees,” he said. “But we know that after three or four days, the few are going away and they are back to normal, so it is a temporary situation.” A number horses were scratched from today’s races because they were deemed unfit to run by the vet. It is understood that over 100 horses have been affected by this virus. [email protected]last_img read more

Pross defeats Bremner in final

first_imgFollowing days of thrilling action Emuwnah Pross was crowned the inaugural champion of the iBet Supreme FIFA 20 ‘League of Champions’ e-Sports tournament, defeating Tevin Bremner Thursday evening in a hard-fought contest. In what was a virtual rematch of the 2018 UEFA Champions League final, Pross, who represented the famous white shirt of Spain’s Real Madrid, defeated Bremner and England’s Liverpool 3-1 to clinch the coveted title. Ironically, the match mirrored the identical score of the aforementioned 2018 grand finale.Pross won the first prize of $50,000, two pennyweights of gold, a trophy, a case of Monster Energy Drink and a special Church’s Chicken Meal.  Bremner’s second prize was $25,000, a case of Monster Energy Drink and a Church’s Chicken meal.Losing finalist Tevin BremnerMichelangelo Jacobus, coordinator of the tournament during post-match comments said, “It was an exciting last couple of matches. The final was truly a thrilling encounter which the final score line did not reflect. I believe the better player on the night won. Congratulations to Mr. Emuwnah Pross who went undefeated in the end and it was a tough loss for Tevin Bremner who was brilliant as well throughout the tournament. The level of competition has been set. I could not have asked for a better start to our (iBet) eSports drive.” Jacobus also took time out to thank the sponsors.“Thanks must be given to the sponsors; Church’s Chicken, Smoke Shack, A&A Game Spot, NCN and Banks DIH through their Monster Energy drink brand. The tournament was a huge success. Of course we had a few difficulties which we managed to overcome, the biggest challenge is the quality of the internet, sometimes the game would lag and that can cause a bit of a disadvantage to the players. In time, I’m sure we will find a way to overcome that, hopefully in the very near future.“The gaming community in Guyana can look forward to much more from iBet, the final eight in the tournament will be ranked according to some criteria. They will be the first ranked gamers in Guyana and are automatically qualified for the next tournament where they will await a new set of participants in the Round of 16. Our social media streaming also went well and we had a few hundred viewers on a nightly basis coming down to the end of the tournament. We will be looking to improve on our quality and reach in the future,” Jacobus added. In the earlier third place playoff, Jonathon Hutson (Manchester City) brushed aside Pernell Cummings (Manchester United) 7-1 in the Manchester Derby. With the win, Hutson will receive $15,000, a case of Monster Energy Drinks as well as Church’s Chicken meal.The event was contested using an elimination two legged format (except final and 3rd Place playoff) and consisted of players battling with their favorite European club for bragging rights and the label of best in the nation.The sponsors of the event were iBet Supreme, Banks DIH under their Monster Energy Drink, Church’s Chicken, A&A Gamespot, Smoke Shack and NCN.

Mark Efendie’s stand out score

first_imgAs it happened, it did not rain at all but many complained about how hot the day was, and with little or no breeze for respite.Statistics show that this is not the easy course it appears and not usually giving up high Stableford scores. Looking at the scores below will confirm that nothing changed today.Mark Efendie was the one shining light as his very good score of 39 points, in winning A flight, was a long way ahead of the rest, and continued his good form this trip.The two Americans, Chris Barker and Bill Copeland, are usually figuring in the finish and here they went to a countback to split second and third places. Both had 34 points but Chris had the better back nine.The B flight was a bit of a lack lustre affair, but to Mike Firkin, a win is a win. 32 points was all it took to take first spot in B flight.Bill Stewart looked a little sheepish when announced as second place with 28 points, but Stu Brown was not at all embarrassed to take third with just 27 points.Near Pins: Michael Lohse (A flight), Chris Barker (A flight). Neither of the B flight pins were won. An A flight player put his name to a B flight pin. That will get you nothing.A Flight (0-16)1st Place – Mark Efendie (15) -39 pts2nd Place – Chris Barker (14) – 34 pts c/back3rd Place – Bill Copeland (12) – 34 ptsB Flight (17+)1st Place – Mike Firkin (23) – 32 pts2nd Place – Bill Stewart (20) – 28 pts3rd Place – Stu Brown (28) – 27 pts c/backBest Front Nine (non-winners) – Kevin Rogers – 16 pts c/backBest Back Nine (non-winners) – Rod Weekes – 16 pts c/backBarry Horman was disappointed when he missed out on the “silly hat” for having the lowest nine hole score, but he need not have worried, he got the “wig” instead.Brock Jensen, who may have had other things on his mind, had an even lower score than Barry and got to wear the “silly hat”.The Eastern Star course was still in very good condition with good run on the fairways and greens that had slowed slightly from a previous visit, but played truly. The rough had not been mowed for a while, obviously too wet for the mowers, so became an adventure at times.Wishful thinking is that prices here don’t go up by too much for “high season”. Winner A flight, Mark Efendie, with Brock Jensen (L) and Barry Horman (R).PSC Pattaya Links Golf SocietyWed. Oct. 16Eastern StarStablefordUnannounced walk-ins and scratchings meant much re- shuffling of players and groups, just to start the day off right. But everyone did get away on time for the trip to Eastern Star.The last time we came here heavy rain had most players heading for the clubhouse and ending their round early. The hope was for no repeat today.last_img read more

Valley West Hawks explode past Kootenay Ice

first_imgThe  Nelson Daily SportsQuick-starting Valley West Hawks used some early offence to take a pair of B.C. Major Midget Hockey League games from the Kootenay Ice during weekend action in the Fraser Valley.The fifth-place Hawks scored three times in each of the two games to stop the Ice 5-3 Saturday at the South Surrey Arena and 6-2 Sunday in Langley at the George Preston Rec Centre.Kevan Kilistoff, Kyle Burroughs and Trevor Cox scored first period goals to stake the Hawks to an early 3-0 lead.Nelson’s Joren Johnson gave Kootenay some brief life with a goal midway through the second frame. But Kilistoff and Ram Brar scored before the period ended to put the game away.Castlegar’s Jesse Knowler had the other goal for Kootenay.Saturday, Kootenay, winless in 12 games, opened the scoring when Carsen Willans of Nelson potted a marker 26 seconds into the game.However, the lead was short lived as Valley West tied the game 24 seconds later before adding two more goals to conclude the period with a 3-1 lead.Knowler and Luke Bertolucci of Trail scored in the second period as Kootenay cut the margin to 4-3. But the Hawks’ Neil James scored the only marker of the third period to give the home side the win.Kootenay, 2-13-3, returns home this weekend for a pair of games against the third-place Greater Vancouver Canadians.Game time Saturday at the NDCC Arena is 5:45 p.m. Sunday the teams drop the puck at 10:30 [email protected]last_img read more

Liverani: Lecce need to be ‘carefree’

first_imgFabio Liverani believes Lecce must be “carefree” in their approach if they are to spring a surprise against Juventus tomorrow. Juve are heavy favourites to beat Lecce, given they are at home and remain the dominant force in Serie A, but Liverani – who must serve a touchline ban on Saturday – is upbeat about his side’s chances. “I won’t be on the field but I’m not bitter about it, even I certainly won’t like not being there,” the Coach said at a Press conference. “I accept the ban that I received after the match against Milan, even if I don’t agree with it. “As for whether Juve will rotate, everyone looks at their own first. The Bianconeri have a squad that can manage any game because they have valid options in every position. “Above all, those who have played less could give something more. Whether Ronaldo is there or not doesn’t change anything. “We’ll certainly enter the field with that bit of carefreeness, which you need in games like these. “We’re only thinking about our guarantees and the collective because we know we can’t match them individually. “We mustn’t think about who we’ll be facing, only that we’ll continue on our way. The group can push us beyond this obstacle. My players can stick together even more when they face difficulties.” The Salentini have yet to win at home this season, so is the ex-Lazio midfielder concerned? “Points count, not where we get them: I don’t look at these things. “I have plenty of forward options and I’ll make my considerations.” Watch Serie A live in the UK on Premier Sports for just £11.99 per month including live LaLiga, Eredivisie, Scottish Cup Football and more.

first_imgOklahoma State hosted a number of top-flight talents on campus both for unofficial visits and for the final mini-camp of the summer over the weekend.We gave a general overview of the names to expect both on Saturday and Sunday, but let’s face it: You want to know who the big dogs on campus were.Here are the five biggest names who made their way to Stillwater this weekend.Isaiah Spiller — Running backKlein Collins tailback Isaiah Spiller visited OSU on Saturday before making his way to Norman for the Sooners’ blowout barbecue event, and he might have been the biggest name in the 2019 class on campus.Spiller has already been offered by OSU, so his visit was little more than a trip for him to view the facilities and meet with coaches. He’s the son of former Texas A&M tight end Fred Spiller, but it’s no less important that he made the haul to Stillwater.In addition to OSU, Texas A&M, Oregon, Oregon, TCU, Baylor, Houston and others have already extended offers.Dax Hill — SafetyDax, the younger brother of Justice Hill, has also been on OSU’s radar for quite some time. The Booker T. Washington product wowed with his Odell Beckham like talents and validated his evaluation as one of the elite players in the 2019 class.“I had a real good day and I wasn’t trying to do too much, but just show the coaches what I could do,” Hill told “They really haven’t seen my play, so I wanted to show what I could do and I had a good day.” being back on campus made me realize how bad i really want it— ??CJ Moore?? (@daddydimes35) July 31, 2017At 6-foot-5, Moore — a four-star talent —  figures to be a potential plug-and-play replacement for Marcell Ateman when he arrives on campus in 2018. Although Brown is considered a bluechipper, he’s already set a commitment date for Nov. 2 — potentially hinting that he’s already got a good idea of who he wants to play for. The Crimson Tide are the leaders in the clubhouse.Branson Bragg — Offensive linemanCenters are recruits too! And Bragg is what many believe to be the best center prospect in this region.The 2019 recruit was offered by OSU during the spring game visit in April, and he made a return trip that could be a good sign for the Pokes’ chances.Bragg also has offers from Texas and OU, and he too made a trip to the Sooners barbecue event on Saturday.CJ Moore — ReceiverTulsa Union standout receiver CJ Moore, an OSU pledge, made a trip on Sunday to Stillwater. And regardless of his commitment status, it’s always good bringing him in given his status as a national recruit.Moore is locked in with his OSU pledge after picking the Pokes over Ohio State, among others, and he seemed to come away motivated after his trip to campus. Although 247 favors OSU in his recruitment, I get the sense that he’s wide open at this juncture. But OSU certainly has a strong case, and both Dax and Justice are very tight.?— Daxton Hill (@daxhill5) July 30, 2017Bobby Brown — Defensive tackleArlington Lamar defensive tackle Bobby Brown is rated as a top-150 player in the 2018 class, and OSU jumped aboard with an offer during his visit.Brown is now up to 20 offers from the likes of OU, Alabama, Texas A&M and a slew of others.
