T&T clubs meet for CFU title

first_img Brilliant free kick Importantly, both winners qualified for the 2016-17 CONCACAF Champions League as two of the three Caribbean slots allowed. The third spot will be filled by the winners of today’s third place playoff between Arnett Gardens and Don Bosco. In Friday’s opening game, W Connection grabbed the lead as early as the second minute when Alvin Jones scored with a brilliant free kick from just outside the box. Arnett Gardens missed a couple of chance to equalise and were made to pay for their wastefulness as Shahdon Winchester doubled W Connection’s lead on the stroke of half-time after being set up by Jamol Williams. The second half was fairly evenly contested but Arnett failed to find the two important goals to keep the semi-final alive. In the second game of the night, neither team could find the decisive goal in regular time, as they battled a heavy downpour, and the contest only came alive early in extra time. Central FC snatched the lead in the 93rd minute through Sean Silva’s free kick but his strike was cancelled out when Don Bosco earned a penalty and Kerlins Georges converted in the 104th minute. PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti (CMC): Title-holders Central FC and last year’s losing finalists, W Connection, will clash again in today’s final of the Caribbean Football Union Club Championship, after posting contrasting wins in the semi-finals here Friday night. Playing at the Stade Sylvio Cator, W Connection blanked Jamaican club Arnett Gardens 2-0 in the opening game and Central FC ensured another all-Trinidadian final when they edged home side Don Bosco 4-2 in a dramatic penalty shoot-out after scores were locked 0-0 after regulation time and 1-1 after extra time.last_img read more

Ashwin puts India in control over New Zealand

first_imgKANPUR, India (AP):Ravichandran Ashwin (3-68) took his 200th Test wicket to leave New Zealand struggling to stay afloat at 93-4 in 37 overs at stumps on day four in Kanpur. Set at an improbable 434 runs by India to win the first Test, the visitors still need 341 runs on day five, with six wickets and 98 overs remaining.The slide began immediately after tea with Martin Guptill (0) caught at short leg, the third batsman in this Test to be dismissed after the ball hit the boot and lobbed up. Ashwin then made it two wickets in five balls in the fourth over, trapping Tom Latham (2) lbw.When Kane Williamson (25), too, was deemed lbw in the 18th over, Ashwin became the second fastest bowler to take 200 Test wickets – in 37 Tests – after Australia’s Clarrie Grimmett (36). Williamson had added 40 runs with Ross Taylor (17), who was run out after not grounding his bat as Umesh Yadav hit the stumps from deep.COMPETING WITH SELF”I am just happy trying to compete with myself. If you try and beat records, it will teach you a lesson. And this I learnt early in my career as I lost a good 12 to 18 months of Test cricket. It taught me to compete with myself and get better every day,” said the off-spinner, who missed a chance to equal the record earlier in August when India’s fourth Test against West Indies in Port-of-Spain was washed out.Luke Ronchi (38) and Mitchell Santner (8) stemmed the tide, batting out 15.3 overs until the close of play. However, it will take something special for the visitors to overcome the highest-ever successful run chase of 418-7 by West Indies against Australia in 2003.The highest fourth-innings’ total in Kanpur is 240 by India against West Indies in 1958, which the hosts lost by 203 runs.”We need to keep fighting. That’s how we play our cricket. We still have six wickets in hand and India showed that it’s easier to score runs if you get a partnership going. More importantly, we need to bat for time,” said New Zealand bowling coach Shane Jurgensen.Earlier, India finished at 377-5 declared in their second innings, with Rohit Sharma (68) and Ravindra Jadeja (50) scoring fifties. Overnight batsmen Murali Vijay (76) and Cheteshwar Pujara (78) fell short of hundreds for a second time in the match.Skipper Virat Kohli (18) was dismissed cheaply, while Ajinkya Rahane made 40 as the hosts piled on the runs.last_img read more

Alaska whips Phoenix five

first_imgPBA IMAGESStarting out hot and finishing at boiling point, Alaska mowed down Phoenix Petroleum, 93-75, on Wednesday night as the Aces—who have never looked this good in almost two years—are now staring the PBA Philippine Cup leaders in the face and are making a case for a twice-to-beat privilege.Calvin Abueva didn’t just warm up this time. He came off the bench at Mall of Asia Arena to pump in 21 points that went with 14 rebounds and four steals in 25 minutes and lead a hardnosed defensive stand by Alaska that starved the Fuel Masters to a franchise low total at the half.ADVERTISEMENT JRU boosts Final Four bid The Aces clamped down hard and gave up 24 points in the first two periods, and when the Fuel Masters tried making a game out of it in the fourth quarter by coming to within 14, Alaska scooted away for good on the way to rising to 5-2 and solo third.Only San Miguel Beer and Magnolia are better with 5-1 slates, though the Beermen and the Hotshots are sure to part ways as they still have to face each other later on.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSTim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crownSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSAfter winning title, time for LA Tenorio to give back to Batangas folkPhoenix couldn’t find the same game it dished out in upsetting Barangay Ginebra last week and slipped to 3-4.“We gave up 24 (first half) points.

Portland’s CJ McCollum joins the 50-point club

first_imgLights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew McCollum’s feat came a day after James Harden had 60 in a triple-double that led the Rockets over the Orlando Magic, 114-107.It also helped the Blazers (29-22) to their fourth straight overall victory (the first four-game winning streak of the season) and eighth straight win at home. Portland rests in sixth place in the Western Conference and appears poised to make a second-half push for playoff position.It was clear McCollum was on his game from the start. He scored a franchise-record 28 points in the first quarter alone — besting Lillard’s previous record by a basket — including four 3-pointers. It was the most points scored in a quarter in the league this season.He punctuated the first half with a dunk, finishing the half with 32 points as the Blazers went into the break with a 67-44 lead.“Once he hit a couple of those tough ones, I was like, I mean I recognize that feeling and I saw the rhythm that he was playing with. At that point, it was just my job to make sure he got the ball in his hands as many times as possible,” Lillard said.After he sat down at the end of the third quarter, McCollum smiled when the crowd chanted his name.“I was thinking, I hope I don’t have to go back in,” McCollum said. “That means we’re not playing the way we should be playing. There was a lot of love tonight, and I appreciate it.”McCollum joined an elite group of 50-point Blazers: Lillard, Damon Stoudamire, Brandon Roy, Andre Miller, Clyde Drexler and Geoff Petrie.But what made it most special for McCollum was one face in the crowd. McCollum’s 92-year-old great aunt was visiting Portland for the first time and was at the game.He planned to celebrate with her afterward. “A lot of the elite players score 50 points, that’s just the way it is,” McCollum said. “It shows you are a really unique scorer and have a lot of abilities.”McCollum sat in the fourth quarter for obvious reasons: The game was already a rout, and risking injury in a blowout was foolhardy. Sportsmanship comes into play, too.“At that point it was a 20-, 21-point lead? You don’t want no bad karma,” said teammate Damian Lillard, who holds the franchise record with a 59-point game last season. “I was thinking about that last year when I was in Miami, I had 49, and there was a couple seconds left and something happened where I could have gone over 50, and I was like, I’d rather take 49 the right way than go out there and force 50 and something bad happens.”But even so, some of his teammates wished the show could go on.“I wanted to see him score more,” Shabazz Napier said. “That’s just me being selfish, though.”ADVERTISEMENT Nueva Ecija warehouse making fake cigarettes raided, 29 Chinese workers nabbed MOST READ OSG plea to revoke ABS-CBN franchise ’a duplicitous move’ – Lacson Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track Jiro Manio arrested for stabbing man in Marikina Almazan vows to comeback stronger after finals heartbreak For McCollum, 50 points was enough.The Blazers guard’s final tally in the 124-108 victory over the Bulls on Wednesday night was a career high.
