Massive defeat for Girlz – Canada hit Jamaica for 9 in Texas; Jordyn Huitema scores 5

first_imgIt was one of the most pathetic displays of football by any Jamaican age-group team as the Reggae Girlz put in a hapless display in Texas to go down by 9-0 to a professional and clinical Canada team in their CONCACAF Women’s Olympic Qualifier.The loss put an end to the Jamaicans Olympic dream as they lie third in the group without a point after two games, with only the match against St Kitts and Nevis remaining.With captain Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw cleared to play after picking up a head injury against Mexico and the inspirational defender Konya Plummer returning to the starting line-up, the Jamaicans were expected to put in a better showing against the Canadians.But it was complete domination by the Canadians from the opening whistle as they pressed the Jamaicans high and had them on the back foot for the entire game.It took only 10 minutes for the Canadians to get the opening goal as Jordyn Huitema hit the back of the net after the Jamaican defence failed to clear their lines, which allowed the striker to fire home from close range.Five minutes later, it was 2-0 as Dionne Rose bundled in a well-placed right-sided cross from the ever-present Janine Beckie.Beckie would then get on the scoresheet just before the half as she slotted home from inside the area after some more neat work down the flank by Huitema.Down three goals, Coach Hubert Busby Jnr decided to change things up as he brought on striker Kayla McCoy and dropped Shaw back in midfield.That tactic didn’t change the outcome much as the Canadians continued to press forward, utilising both flanks. DOUBLE BLOW The fourth goal for the Jamaicans would be a double blow as Beckie outpaced defender Plummer to fire home her second on the night. The ensuing play caused an injury to Plummer, who had to be substituted by Alyssa Whitehead in the 51st minute.With the stuffing knocked out of the Reggae Girlz, the Canadians raided the Jamaican goal at will, and it was a matter of how many goals the Jamaicans would concede on the night.Well, that answer would be five more as Huietama wrapped up a five-timer, and Beckie would complete her hat-trick as the Canadians stamped their dominance in the group. The Jamaicans managed only two shots on target during the entire match, and that summed up their pathetic display as they now turn their attention to the bottom-of-the-table clash with St Kitts and Nevis on Tuesday.last_img read more

first_imgAnd on top of the health victims of superstar Janis Adetokunb, the Milwaukee Bucks had such a perfect season before the coronavirus attack.

Permaul due back home today

first_imgGuyana  and West Indies left arm orthodox spinner Veerasammy Permaul is due to return home today with the rest of the West Indies team following their 0-3 T20 series loss to Pakistan in the series which ended yesterday in Karachi.

Permaul is expected to continue his rehabilitation upon his return home.last_img read more

Orioles spring training preview: 40 for 40

first_imgAs Orioles pitchers and catchers prepare to hold their first workout in Sarasota on Friday, much of the attention will begin to shift from an abysmal offseason to the daily happenings of spring training.Executive vice president of baseball operations Dan Duquette and ownership have yet to deliver on stated goals of adding a veteran starting pitcher as well as significantly addressing a number of other needs, but the roster isn’t devoid of talent either as manager Buck Showalter attempts to guide the Orioles to their third consecutive winning season.With 13 players out of options on the 40-man roster, Duquette and Showalter will face some difficult decisions while fans will justifiably continue to clamor for some impact additions between now and Opening Day.Here’s a glance at the current 40-man roster — left-handed pitcher Troy Patton will not count during his 25-game suspension to begin the regular season — with a preview of non-roster spring training invitees coming later in the week:PITCHERS (22)LHP Mike BelfioreOpening Day age: 25Options remaining: two Musing: The southpaw reliever had a few call-ups to Baltimore last season — appearing in one game — but his 1.441 WHIP at Triple-A Norfolk suggests he’ll start the season with the Tides once again.LHP Tim BerryOpening Day age: 23Options remaining: three Musing: Added to the 40-man roster after a strong 2013 campaign for Frederick, the 2009 50th-round pick can firmly put himself on the club’s radar if he can duplicate or better his 2013 ERA of 3.85 at Double-A Bowie.RHP Brad BrachOpening Day age: 27Options remaining: oneMusing: Acquired from San Diego in exchange for Devin Jones, Brach has a career 3.70 ERA and has averaged 10.1 strikeouts per nine innings pitched in three major league seasons but might be squeezed out of the Baltimore bullpen to start the season since he has an option year remaining.LHP Zach BrittonOpening Day age: 26Options remaining: noneMusing: We’ll see if new pitching coach Dave Wallace can work any magic with Britton, who is coming off a poor 2013 season and no longer has age or options on his side in finally realizing his once-impressive potential.RHP Dylan BundyOpening Day age: 21Options remaining: twoMusing: His Tommy John surgery was one of the more disappointing developments of the 2013 season, but his rehabilitation progress suggests a late-season return to live-game action is realistic and he still has his entire career in front of him at such a young age.LHP Wei-Yin ChenOpening Day age: 28Options remaining: threeMusing: Entering the final season of a three-year, $11.09 million contract that includes a team option for 2015, the Taiwanese southpaw can show the Orioles he’s capable of reaching another level after pitching to a solid 4.04 ERA in his first two seasons despite missing two months with an oblique injury in 2013.LHP Kelvin De La CruzOpening Day age: 25Options remaining: noneMusing: De La Cruz has never pitched in the majors and has control issues (4.7 walks per nine innings), but his strikeout numbers (11.3 per nine innings at Triple-A Albuquerque in 2013) are impressive and he’s had success against lefties, which made him a viable project in Duquette’s mind.RHP Edgmer EscalonaOpening Day age: 27Options remaining: noneMusing: The Rockies product posted ERAs of 6.04 and 5.67 in 2012 and 2013 respectively — making the Orioles’ interest in him puzzling — and he figures to face an uphill battle to carve out a spot in the Orioles bullpen but would likely clear waivers to be outrighted to Norfolk.RHP Kevin GausmanOpening Day age: 23Options remaining: twoMusing: Vying for the fifth spot in the starting rotation after spending time in the bullpen during his rookie season, the 2012 first-round pick gained 12 pounds in the winter and hopes his developing slider has improved enough to land him a stable job with the major league club.RHP Miguel GonzalezOpening Day age: 29Options remaining: twoMusing: His stamina often comes into question with only a 170-pound frame, but Gonzalez has gone 20-12 with a 3.58 in 43 starts in his first two seasons and doesn’t get nearly enough credit for the stability he’s added to the starting rotation after being one of the best stories of the surprising 2012 playoff season.RHP Liam HendriksOpening Day age: 25Options remaining: oneMusing: The Australian was selected off waivers in December and figures to be a good bet for Norfolk’s starting rotation in 2014 after posting a 6.06 ERA and making 28 starts for the Minnesota Twins over the last three seasons.RHP Tommy HunterOpening Day age: 27Options remaining: noneMusing: The favorite to be the new closer, Hunter has the makeup for the ninth, but a tendency to give up the long ball (11 in 86 1/3 innings in 2013) and shaky numbers against left-handed hitters (.294 against him last year) won’t make Showalter comfortable until Hunter proves himself in his new role.RHP Steve JohnsonOpening Day age: 26Options remaining: oneMusing: An injury-plagued 2013 was a lost season for the local product, but Johnson remains a candidate for the fifth starter job and has averaged 11 strikeouts per nine innings pitched in 54 major league innings despite underwhelming velocity that often leaves critics doubting him. LHP Chris JonesOpening Day age: 25Options remaining: threeMusing: Acquired from Atlanta in the Luis Ayala trade early last season, Jones went 4-4 with a 2.67 ERA in 31 appearances with Norfolk and is a name to keep an eye on if the Orioles need left-handed bullpen help later in the season. LHP Brian MatuszOpening Day age: 27Options remaining: noneMusing: The 2008 first-round pick still has visions of starting in the big leagues, but it appears that ship has sailed as he’s found a niche as a situational reliever and will be even more valuable with Patton suspended for the first 25 games of the season.LHP T.J. McFarlandOpening Day age: 24Options remaining: threeMusing: After being stashed in the bullpen as a Rule 5 pick last year, McFarland figures to be a member of Norfolk’s rotation where he can continue to develop and hopefully justify the Orioles’ choice to hinder their roster flexibility last season.RHP Bud NorrisOpening Day age: 29Options remaining: threeMusing: His control issues and 4.80 ERA were a disappointment upon being acquired from Houston last July, but Norris is an excellent bet to win a starting rotation spot and has a career 4.36 ERA in five major league seasons.RHP Darren O’DayOpening Day age: 31Options remaining: player permission only Musing: The bullpen struggled down the stretch last year with O’Day limited to just two appearances from Aug. 29 through Sept. 18 while dealing with numbness in two fingers, so his return to full strength is critical for a group already needing to fill the void of departed closer Jim Johnson.LHP Troy PattonOpening Day age: 28Options remaining: none Musing: His suspension for Adderall use would likely have him on shaky footing had it not been for the solid 3.70 ERA he posted last season, but Patton must deal with the reality of how he’ll prepare for the season with Showalter already saying he won’t pitch in many spring games.RHP Josh StinsonOpening Day age: 26Options remaining: noneMusing: Liked by Showalter, Stinson will compete to win a long-relief spot in the bullpen and pitched very well in that capacity late last season, posting a 0.79 ERA in 11 1/3 innings of relief after a less-than-impressive spot start made early in 2013.RHP Chris TillmanOpening Day age: 25Options remaining: noneMusing: The 2013 All-Star righty became the ace of the staff last season and was very consistent after a rocky April, but his next goal will be to pitch deeper into games all season like he did late in the year when he completed seven or more innings in six of his final eight starts.RHP Ryan WebbOpening Day age: 28Options remaining: oneMusing: Webb being the Orioles’ best free-agent signing to this point speaks volumes about a miserable winter, but he’s the dark-horse candidate to close out games — if Hunter falters — due to his impressive splits against right-handed and lefty hitters (both hit .244 against him in 2013).Continue to next page for position players >>>>>last_img read more

“Jurassic Park” turns 25

first_imgPhoto by Murray Close/Getty Images(NEW YORK) — Today, June 11, marks the 25th anniversary of the release of Steven Spielberg’s Jurassic Park.An adaptation of the bestselling book from the late Michael Crichton, the movie centered on an eccentric tycoon named Hammond, played by director-actor Richard Attenborough, who funds a team of scientists to use DNA technology to revive dinosaurs that populate a one-of-a-kind theme park.Before the park opens, Hammond invites experts in various disciplines — Sam Neill as paleontologist Dr. Alan Grant, Laura Dern as a botanist, and Jeff Goldblum as a skeptical mathematician — to kick the tires, so to speak. Also along for the preview ride are Hammond’s two grandchildren. The tour goes sideways in a massive way however, when a park employee — played by a pre-Seinfeld Wayne Knight — shuts down security systems as part of a plot to sell steal dino embryos. The park’s main attractions soon slip their pens, and wreak havoc on the humans stranded there. All this is set to another great John Williams score.The movie famously made use of cutting-edge computer generated effects from the wizards at George Lucas’ special effects house Industrial Light and Magic, as well as the late Stan Winston and his team, who supplied stunning, full-sized dinos for close-ups — including the now-iconic scene that saw a T-Rex getting up close and personal with a couple of kids, with only a toppled SUV’s window between them.Both effects teams won Oscars for their respective efforts. The film also won a third trophy, for Best Sound Effects Editing.The movie — “Jaws with claws” as how some described it — went on to gross more than a billion dollars at the global box office, and spawned a pair of sequels, 1997’s The Lost World: Jurassic Park, and Jurassic Park III in 2001.The franchise got a billion dollar-plus boost with a blockbuster 2015 reboot, Jurassic World, with Marvel movie star Chris Pratt playing a veteran-turned-velociraptor trainer, alongside his onscreen boss, played by Bryce Dallas Howard. A sequel, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, hits theaters June 22.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.
