Hurricanes, Marooners confident ahead of Super 50 opener

first_imgBASSETERRE, St Kitts, (CMC) – Hosts Leeward Islands Hurricanes and title-holders Combined Campuses and Colleges Marooners have both exuded confidence ahead of today’s opening clash of the Regional Super50.The two teams will meet at Warner Park in the day/night Group A fixture which will raise the curtain on the 50-overs domestic campaign which runs until December 1.Marooners stunned their rivals last year when they produced a clinical brand of cricket to clinch the title for the first time and captain Kyle Corbin believes his side can repeat, despite an influx of new players.“I think we have a pretty good chance to go all the way in this tournament,” said Corbin, Player-of-the-Match in last season’s final against Guyana Jaguars.“The dynamics of this team I think they compliment each other pretty well. It’s pretty balanced, it’s a side that’s very young, it’s very exciting so I think we should do pretty well in this tournament.”He added: “We’re defending champions but it’s almost a new team. We have a few players going on to their territory so it’s basically a few fresh faces. We know it’s easy to win but harder to defend.Everybody will be looking at CCC this year and looking at the type of cricket we’re playing. I think once the new players coming into the team follow the same way we played last year, the same type of cricket, the same type of attitude on and off the field, we should do pretty well.”Corbin said it was important Marooners played as a team if they were to make it out of the group which also comprised Barbados Pride, Jamaica Scorpions and Canada.“What worked well for us last year was that everybody had a role to play at some point during the tournament,” he pointed out.“There was no one standout performer – each game saw someone else put their hand up. Once we play for each other, we should do pretty well.”Hurricanes skipper, Jahmar Hamilton, said a winning start would be crucial to his side’s campaign, as they looked to break their poor run in the competition.They have not won a regional 50-overs title in nearly a decade but pointed to consistency and simplicity as keys to turning around their fortunes.“Our chances are very high. We have a few experienced players that have been around for a while so it’s just to gel together and put our best foot forward,” he said.“It’s just about starting well, get that momentum going into the tournament and that will just carry us right through to the semi-finals.”Playing at home, Hurricanes will benefit from familiar conditions. However, Hamilton does not expect the burden of expectations from home fans to be a burden to carry.“We know we’re home, we know the conditions here so it’s just for us to go out and play our normal game of cricket, just enjoy it and have fun,” he said.“There’s no pressure, we just want to go out and keep it simple, do the basics and once we’re consistent with that, we’ll definitely be rewarded for that.”SQUADS:HURRICANES – Jahmar Hamilton (captain), Rahkeem Cornwall, Kieran Powell, Devon Thomas, Montcin Hodge, Keacy Carty, Yannick Leonard, Kezron Archibald, Sheeno Berridge, Jeremiah Louis, Akeem Saunders, Terrance Warde, Amir Jangoo, Jason Campbell.MAROONERS – Kyle Corbin (captain), Carlos Brathwaite, Romaine Morris, Akeem Jordan, Jonathan Drakes, Ojay Shields, Kavesh Kantasingh, Larry Joseph, Abhijai Mansingh, Sadique Du Shawn, Luciano Henry, Odain Orlando McCatty, Jarlarnie Niquan, Nigel Seales, Paul Palmer, Akshaya Persaud.last_img read more

Texans rest several key players in 35-14 loss to Titans

first_img First Published: 30th December, 2019 10:47 IST FOLLOW US COMMENT Written By The Houston Texans decided that resting some banged-up players before next week’s playoff game was more important than winning on Sunday.Derrick Henry rushed for a season-high 211 yards and three touchdowns and the Tennessee Titans beat the Texans 35-14 to clinch a playoff spot. The Texans beat the Titans two weeks ago to take control of the AFC South and locked up the division last week, allowing Houston to sit quarterback Deshaun Watson and other key players.”Once we were getting closer to the beginning of the game, it was pretty obvious that our seeding wasn’t going to change,” coach Bill O’Brien said. “So we decided to do those things in the best interest of the team.”Watson was active on Sunday, but O’Brien started AJ McCarron instead. Watson was listed as questionable with a back injury this week but said he was OK. Receiver DeAndre Hopkins (illness) was also active, but did not play and several starters, including receiver Kenny Stills (knee), left tackle Laremy Tunsil (ankle) and nose tackle D.J. Reader, were inactive.“The most important thing when you get to this part of the season is the health of the team,” safety Justin Reid said. “So everybody that got a chance to get healthy and be back next week, that’s what’s most important.”McCarron threw for 225 yards with an interception and ran for a touchdown.Houston was locked into the AFC’s fourth seed after the Kansas City Chiefs beat the Los Angeles Chargers earlier Sunday. The Texans will host Buffalo next week.“I think we’re as healthy as we can possibly be at this time,” O’Brien said. “We need to come in here ready to go … and have a good week of preparation.”The Texans are expected to get three time Defensive Player of the Year J.J. Watt back against the Bills. Watt, who tore a pectoral muscle in October, returned to practice last week, but couldn’t be added to the active roster until after Sunday’s game.It’s unclear how much Watt will be able to play next weekend, but regardless of his snap count, everyone is thrilled about his return after he was thought to be done for the season.“Anything he can give us from a playing standpoint will be great, but I just think that his presence alone is big,” veteran cornerback Johnathan Joseph said. “Just going out there with a guy like that, rushing to get back, beating the timetable, putting it on the line for his team, anytime you have a guy doing that, it’s going to lift everybody else up, give them some extra juice and pump them up as well.”Joseph injured a hamstring in the first half and didn’t return, but said after the game that he is OK and expects to play next week.McCarron scored on a 1-yard run in the third quarter that cut Tennessee’s lead to 21-14.“He made some good plays out there, made some good decisions,” O’Brien said. “It was tough sledding at time, but for a guy that had not played, this was a good opportunity for him to play.” SUBSCRIBE TO UScenter_img Associated Press Television News Last Updated: 30th December, 2019 10:47 IST Texans Rest Several Key Players In 35-14 Loss To Titans The Houston Texans decided that resting some banged-up players before next week’s playoff game was more important than winning on Sunday.

Mocha access road gets long-awaited street lights

first_imgThe Mocha/Arcadia community and frequent commuters are happy that the Ministry of Public Infrastructure has fulfilled its promise to install street lights along the Mocha Access Road, East Bank Demerara.Eighty-seven street lights installed on the Mocha Access Road, EBDOver the years, a high number of serious vehicular accidents have been reported along this road, the most recent being a collision involving a horse and a car, where Franky Morphine was travelling in his car PNN 4631, in company of two female cousins and their children, ages five and seven, when things took a deathly turn.As he was nearing his destination, a horse strutted out from the bushes and into the path of the vehicle.Believing the long stretch of road to be completely desolate at 21:00h, Morphine was caught completely off guard, unable to swerve out of the way in time after he noticed the stray animal running onto the roadway.The horse crashed through the windshield of the car, decapitating the animal instantly. Luckily, no one was seriously injured.However, only a few months ago Shemroy Cave, 21, a bartender lost his life following a head-on collision with a horse.Young cave was heading to see his girlfriend after visiting his father when he crashed into the stray animal. He was rushed to the Georgetown Public Hospital where he was pronounced dead.As a result, residents of the community, as well as the father of the young man appealed to government to provide lighting for the access road, raising the point that more lives will be lost if this darkness continues to be neglected.Public Infrastructure Minister David Patterson in an invited comment said: “A lot of accidents have occurred late at nights on the Mocha Access Road, one of which resulted in a young man losing his life, and the Ministry installed lights in Diamond and felt the need to install in Mocha, subsequently we have installed 87 street lights to date.”In mid-April, the Ministry of Public Infrastructure had announced that 100 streetlights would be installed along the access roads of Mocha and Diamond on the EBD. While the initial plan had been to install 50 streetlights per each community, this figure was increased. The Ministry made good on its promise, having completed the project in four months.The community expressed gratitude for the lights. It is expected that the newly installed streetlights will also heighten security in as well as reduce the likelihood of road accidents, they related.The Ministry of Public Infrastructure had also recently installed 100 lights along the Diamond/Grove Housing Scheme main road which was also prone to accidents.It is expected that the next phase of light installation will be on the Corentyne Coast, Berbice.last_img read more
