PANTHERS Rugby Club came out winners 12-7 over Trinidad Northern Rugby Club after 14 minutes of intense battle, to win this year’s STAG Beer Guyana Carnival 7s tournament on Sunday evening at the National Park.The scores were level, 7-7, at halftime and based on the relentless defending by the two sides, the game seemed set to go into extra time.However, Osie McKenzie made a blistering run down the middle to score what would be the winning try of the game.Jamal Angus had scored the first try which was converted by Godfrey Broomes.The visitors quickly responded with a breakaway of their own with Davel Scott making the try which was brilliantly converted by Sebastian Navarro.Northern had trounced Panthers 22-7 during the preliminary stages and knocked out defending champions Pepsi Hornets via a 14-0 rout.Panthers drew 12-12 with Yamaha Caribs in the first match and got convincing victories over Hornets (14-12) and Police (29-7).Panthers captain Rondell McArthur said they were overjoyed with the victory, especially after bouncing back from a tough defeat to Northern.Journalist Rawle Toney, chief organiser of the event, expressed great delight at the high level of play. He strongly believes the one-day event gave the national selection panel an overview of possible options for the Olympic Qualifiers for Cayman Islands in July.Toney also brought broader smiles to players by stating the first-place prize will move to US$5000 next year, making it the most lucrative tournament in the Caribbean.“Let me say this now; Guyana Carnival Rugby Sevens will be $1M (US$5000). I am putting that out there because we have the support of our sponsors. This year’s tournament, as it is, recognised as the second largest prize money for rugby in the Caribbean and next year we will supersede that of any tournament in the Caribbean,” he fervently stated.Apart from Ansa McAL Trading Limited through the STAG Beer brand, Guyana Lottery Company’s Let’s Bet Sports and Ramps Logistics were the other partners.

In order to maintain high water quality in the county’s water distribution system, the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department (PBCWUD) will temporarily modify the disinfection process used to treat drinking water from Monday, November 27 through Saturday, December 23.Stronger disinfectantPBCWUD will use a stronger disinfectant process to produce chlorine residual instead of a chloramine residual during the preventive maintenance process. Customers served by PBCWUD may notice a slight chlorine taste or odor in their tap water during this period. These temporary conditions will not cause any adverse health effects.Those who are especially sensitive to the taste or odor of chlorine can keep an open container of drinking water in their refrigerators for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate.Seek professional adviceUsers of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish, and managers of stores and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method of removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water.Anyone needing more information on this change in the water treatment process may call the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department at (561) 740-4600, option #1.To find the most up-to-date information concerning the Palm Beach County Water Utilities Department water distribution and wastewater collection systems, follow the department on Facebook and Twitter @PBCWUD.For more on Palm Beach County initiatives, click the link: PBC launches challenge to end homeless youth
Allen Hurns will play with his third team in as many seasons after the Cowboys release the veteran receiver later this week.According to ESPN, Dallas hoped to keep Hurns at a smaller price tag than what he was due in the final season of the two-year, $12 million deal he signed with the team last offseason. However, Hurns wanted to see what he could get on the open market, prompting his release. Interest in Hurns from other teams will rely heavily on his health after he suffered a gruesome ankle injury in the Cowboys’ 24-22 win over the Seahawks in the wild-card round of last season’s playoffs. Dak Prescott ‘the first guy’ Cowboys want to get under contract, report says NFL rumors: Bengals lock up Tyler Boyd with $43M extension Hurns participated in drills at Dallas minicamp last month and figured he was 90 percent back from a broken fibula and dislocated ankle.

He went undrafted in 2014 before catching on with the Jaguars, where he spent four seasons and caught 21 touchdowns.
