SWANSEA, Wales (AP): Newcastle gave ailing manager Rafa Benitez something to cheer by beating Swansea 1-0 yesterday, spoiling Renato Sanches’ first experience of the English Premier League. Having earlier cleared a shot off his own goal line, Jamaal Lascelles headed home the winner from a corner in the 77th minute as Newcastle picked up a second straight victory. The 57-year-old Benitez was not at Liberty Stadium after having a procedure last Monday to address an infection resulting from an earlier hernia operation. He had been in such pain this week that he had not been able to travel to training. Sanches made his debut for Swansea after joining on loan from Bayern Munich in a surprise transfer on the final day of the summer transfer window. The Portugal midfielder endured a difficult start to life in the Premier League, battling hard but often giving away possession before being substituted in the 69th minute. The 20-year-old Sanches was being talked about as Portugal’s natural heir to Cristiano Ronaldo after helping his national team win last year’s European Championship title, where he won the Young Player of the Tournament award. He joined Bayern on one of the richest contracts in Bundesliga history, for a transfer fee that could climb to about US$90 million, but struggled for game time last season.

ST JOHN’S, Antigua, (CMC): The newly constructed Brian Lara Stadium will play host to the three-match One-Day International series between West Indies Women and Sri Lanka Women, as the Caribbean side begin their bid for direct qualification for the ICC 2021 World Cup. In a statement yesterday, Cricket West Indies announced the matches would be played on October 11, 13 and 15 at the facility in Tarouba, located in south Trinidad, and would form part of the new cycle of the ICC Women’s Championship which will be contested between the leading eight women’s teams. The Windies along with Sri Lanka, Australia, India, New Zealand, Pakistan, South Africa and newly crowned 50-over World champions England, will do battle in the Women’s Championship until March 2020. Hosts New Zealand and the three other highest-ranked sides at the conclusion of the championship will gain direct qualification for the World Cup. The remaining four sides will enter a qualifier. West Indies were good enough to qualify directly for last June’s ICC World Cup in England after finishing fourth in the last ICC Women’s Championship. They, however, failed to make an impression, finishing sixth after winning just twice. Following the ODI series, the Windies Women will clash with the Sri Lankans in a three-match Twenty20 International series from October 19-22 at the Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua, An 18-member West Indies Women’s squad are currently in training in Trinidad in preparation for the upcoming series.
St Andrew Technical High School (STATHS), winners of the Manning Cup in 1987, are eyeing a second title this year. After an unbeaten run in the competition this year, STATHS are in the quarter-finals and in with a good shot at the title and other silverware. STATHS’ Phillip Williams says that the team has met its goals so far. “With each match, our objective gets higher. We see ourselves taking the Manning Cup, but we will take it one game at a time. We are focusing on what we have to do in each game to get the job done,” Williams told The Gleaner ahead of his team’s quarter-final , game against St Catherine High , today at Constant Spring. “We have restructured from management down to the players. We are on a programme. Going into pre-season, one of the goals was to create a brand that when people see us playing football, they could say it is St Andrew Technical,” he shared. “Apart from that we had set some small goals in terms of reaching the second round and reaching the Walker Cup, which we have achieved so far, our next goal is to reach the Super Cup. Based on the adjustment by ISSA, we know that it is the top four in the Manning Cup that will play in the FLOW Super Cup,” Williams added. “This year’s squad is a combination of under-16 players stepping up from Colts and senior Manning Cup players. Defensively, we are doing well, but it is an overall team effort that has led to us being unbeaten and keeping clean sheets,” he said. “Jaedin White is very influential. He is one of the senior players, although he is very young and playing in the Manning Cup for three years. He was also the goalkeeper for Cavalier in the National Premier League play-offs and was the MVP in the KSAFA Super League last season. The players trust him between the sticks and follows his leadership on the pitch,” the coach pointed out. White apart, the other leading players are David Smith, Noel Walker, Andre Smith, Barrington Bailey, Armani Reid, Geovanni Howell, Jevaughnie Johnson, who has scored six goals and John Henry. Williams said that a lot of preparation was put in ahead of the competition. “We had seen ourselves making a very deep run in the competition. We don’t consider any of the two quarter-final groups easy because it is the top eight in Manning Cup but we know how to accumulate points. We are very confident that at the end of the three matches, we will be there in the semi-finals,” Williams pointed out. firstname.lastname@example.org Small goals
Generation United tops Top Notch League May Day High win Clarendon Junior Netball league Jamalco triumph again in Clarendon Senior League May Day High won their first major Netball trophy when they secured the Juici Patties- sponsored Clarendon Netball Association’s Junior League after outlasting Hayes Super Stars at the Mineral Heights Sports Centre. May Day’s win was remarkable in that they were behind for the first two quarters of the 40-minute game. They trailed 6-9 at the end of the first quarter and even though they outscored their more senior opponents 10-8 in the second, they were still behind 16-17 at half-time. However, coach Janet Hunter got them energised for the third and the teenagers from Mandeville left their Clarendon-based opponents for dead with a robust surge to score 13-3 and an eventual lead of 29-20 at the end of the third quarter. Hayes played better in the final quarter but May Day held on for the win. Later in the awards ceremony watched by their principal Stanford Davis, May Day also collected the award for the most disciplined team while Oliesha Johnson was voted the most valuable player. Jamalco outplayed Team R of Mandeville 59-22 to retain their Juici Patties-sponsored Clarendon Senior League at the Mineral Heights Sports Centre. Veteran goalscorer Elaine Davis pumped in 26 from 28 tries. Team R had beaten Jamalco twice in the preliminary round but several of their top players were absent due to overseas commitments. However, the performance last Sunday was a carry-over from the previous weekend when they brought back their big guns and embarrassed Cavalier 52-17 in the semifinals. The early exchanges were even at 2-2 but once Jamalco moved to 6-2 and then 7-3 midway the first quarter, the game’s scoring pattern had been established. Kerryann Brown of Jamalco was voted the game’s Most Valuable Player. Generation United were crowned winners of the 2018 Top Notch Summer Football League in Manchester last Sunday after defeating Belair Boyz 1-0 in the final at the Sunset Community field in Knockpatrick. Fittingly, the lone goal of the game came from the boots of the Generation United’s manager/captain Bruce Chambers. Chambers, who was netting his third goal of the competition, rose above his rivals to head home Oswald Gordon’s cross in the 30th minute. Generation United were winning the league for the first time after suffering defeat in the final five years ago. Christopher Dunn of the champions was voted the community league’s Most Valuable Player. He scored seven goals while providing seven assists. In other awards, Kemar Green of Central United was leading scorer with 11 goals. Nicholas Ball, also of Central United, was the best defender, Adarie Roberts the best goalkeeper while Jodi Morgan was best coach. The competition’s sponsor Councillor Clayon Francis and Mayor of Manchester Donovan Mitchell handed out the awards. Albion United finished third after defeating Galaxy FC 2-0 in the third place playoff.
WHEN the third set of matches in the second round of the Urban area of the ISSA Schoolgirl Netball Competition gets under way today at the Leila Robinson Courts, all eyes will be on Gaynstead High School and St Catherine High School, as both will be involved in mega junior and senior clashes in Group 1 encounters. At 2:15 p.m., the junior teams of both schools will take the court, while at 3 p.m. it will be the turn of the seniors, as it will be a clash of unbeaten teams. The junior match will be a repeat of last year’s final, where the Phyllis Thompson-coached girls surprised their opponents to win the title for the first time. This will be some revenge for the Dalton Hinds-coached Gaynstead team, as both teams have won their two matches so far. Gaynstead juniors got the better of St Hugh’s 39-19 and Bridgeport 38-16, while St Catherine got by Wolmer’s 27-21 and Jose Marti 38-16. It is a similar affair among the seniors, with both teams coming off two wins. Gaynstead, who were beaten finalist last year, stopped Jose Marti 38-3 and Meadowbrook 42-12. St Catherine, who finished third last year, have so far defeated Holy Childhood 39-31 and Jose Marti 69-11. A win here is very crucial for both teams as the winner will avoid playing favourites and defending champions The Queen’s School in the semi-finals, as the Christopher Smart coached team looks well set to top Group 2. Thompson is very confident of turning back Gaynstead, although she thinks the games will be very competitive. “It is going to be very competitive as they will be coming for revenge, as we beat them in the junior finals last year. However my team is ready for the challenge and the girls are oozing confidence,” Thompson said. In another important clash today among the seniors in Group 2, defending champions Excelsior will take on Queen’s in a clash of unbeaten teams, as both won their first two matches, but the Mountain View-based team looks set to get the better of the Marvette Anderson-coached outfit and continue their unbeaten run since last year. Today’s games JUNIORS – Camperdown vs St Hugh’s 1:30 p.m. – Merl Grove vs Ardenne 1:30 p.m. – Bridgeport vs Wolmer’s 1:30 p.m. – Jose Marti vs St Jago 1:30 p.m. – St Catherine vs Gaynstead 2:15 p.m. – Norman Manley vs Queen’s 2:15 p.m. SENIORS – Meadowbrook vs Holy Childhood 2:15 p.m. – Jose Marti vs St Andrew Technical 3:00 p.m. – St Catherine vs Gaynstead 3:00 p.m. – Merl Grove vs Ardenne 3:00 p.m. – Excelsior vs Queen’s 3:15 p.m. – Camperdown vs St Andrew 3:15 p.m.
LONDON (CMC): Jamaican striker Jamille Matt notched his 15th goal of the season as Newport County edged Exeter City 1-0 in an English league Two match at Rodney Parade on Saturday. It was Newport’s first league win since November, although the Welsh club sprang a major surprise when they knocked out 2016 Premier League champions Leicester City in the third round of the FA Cup earlier this month when Matt was on target with an early header in the 2-1 win. Matt broke the deadlock in Saturday’s match with a close-range finish in the 71st minute to give manager Mike Flynn’s side a lift ahead of next Saturday’s FA Cup fourth-round trip to Championship outfit Middlesbrough. Despite taking all three points, Newport remain in 13th place, five places below Exeter, whose best chance came when Ryan Bowman hit the crossbar. Meanwhile, Bermudian striker Jonte Smith scored his 12th goal of the season as third-placed Lewes bounced back to beat lowly Wingate & Finchley 4-2 in a Bostik League Premier Division match at the Dripping Pan after trailing 2-0 just before the hour mark. Smith scored Lewes’ second goal with a 67th minute penalty, three minutes after coming on as a substitute.
