Arnett’s Waite hails goalkeeper after win

first_imgArnett Gardens coach Jerome Waite praised his goalkeeper, Damion Hyatt, after his team came away with a 2-1 win in the Red Stripe Premier League semi-final first leg against Humble Lion on Monday night.The Junglists will take their slim advantage into the second leg at the Effortville Community Centre field in Clarendon next Sunday.”It was a competitive and tactical game,” Waite told The Gleaner, “Our goal-keeper, Damion Hyatt, came up big with two outstanding saves, and we also created some clear chances and should have scored at least one more time,” he said after the game, which was played at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.The home team settled early with some good attacking play and pushed back Humble Lion. They, however, had to wait until just before half time, when hot striker Fabian Reid found the back of the net.The home side doubled the advantage when star midfielder Vishinul Harris converted past Humble Lion’s goalkeeper Khadeen Davis in the 60th minute. However, the visitors responded with a goal from Kevon Reid two minutes later.POWER OUTAGEIt was, indeed, a good game for the spectators, despite rain before and during the game that started 15 minutes late due to a power outage.Harris, who came back from injury during the late part of the season, was replaced after scoring, and Waite said he wanted to save the player for the next game.”Vishinul Harris is a class player. We have another leg, so we made a decision to take him out as he is just back from injury,” Waite explained.Looking forward to the second leg, Waite said they are very confident.”Everybody is confident playing at home. In the quarter-final, we went to St James and beat Montego Bay United, so we can do the same to Humble Lion,” he said.last_img read more

Strugglesville: Cavs blow big lead, end Magic

first_imgCleveland Cavaliers’ Derrick Rose, center, drives between Orlando Magic’s D.J. Augustin, left, and Khem Birch during the first half of an NBA basketball game Thursday, Jan. 18, 2018, in Cleveland. (AP Photo/Tony Dejak)CLEVELAND — There was none of the usual postgame chatter or music in the Cavaliers locker room.The mood was somber and quiet, not the same place.ADVERTISEMENT Michael Porter Jr. stays patient as playing time increases Newsome sets focus on helping Bolts open new PBA season on right track “Right now we’re in Strugglesville,” LeBron James said. “But it felt like a win. We needed it. Definitely.”Isaiah Thomas made two free throws with 11 seconds left and Cleveland came up with a defensive stop in the frantic final seconds after blowing a 23-point lead to beat the Orlando Magic 104-103 on Thursday night and snap a four-game losing streak.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 folkAfter Thomas made his shots, Orlando’s Elfrid Payton missed a contested layup with three seconds left. The three officials ruled there was an inadvertent whistle and held a jump ball at midcourt.Magic forward Aaron Gordon grabbed the toss and sank a 45-footer as the horn sounded and Cleveland’s crowd shrieked in disbelief. But Gordon committed a jump-ball violation with the move and Cleveland only had to inbound the ball to come away with a victory following a crazy and exhausting final sequence that left everyone dazed. The Cavs were rolling to a rare, easy win before they went cold from the outside and were outscored 33-17 in the third quarter by the Magic, who have dropped 17 of 19. Cleveland went 1 for 17 on 3-pointers in the second half.Payton scored 19 and Gordon 17 for Orlando, which felt a few calls should have gone their way in the final seconds.Thomas was sent to the line with 11 seconds left when referee Kane Fitzgerald called a foul on Orlando’s Shelvin Mack. Magic coach Frank Vogel felt Mack had tied up Thomas to force a jump ball.“I’m disappointed for our guys,” Vogel said. “I felt like they deserved the victory. We didn’t get the breaks down the stretch.”ROSE RETURNSCavs guard Derrick Rose returned after missing more than two months with ankle injuries and scored nine points in 13 minutes.Rose deepens Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue’s rotation and the former league MVP gives the Cavs another proven scorer.“I thought he looked pretty good,” James said. “For as long as he’s been out, can’t ask for much. He gave us everything he had. Defensively he was in tune, offensively he made some great moves.”CAPTAIN, MY CAPTAINBefore the game, James was chosen as one of the captains for this year’s All-Star game after receiving the most votes in balloting by fans, players and media. James will have first choice from a pool of selected players, which will include former Cavs teammate Kyrie Irving and players from Western Conference teams.James wouldn’t reveal his No. 1 pick, but made it clear he’s going to take his duties seriously.“I’m going to try to build the best team I can,” he said. “I don’t play fantasy anything. And I don’t trade guys onto teams when I play 2K or play the video games so this is different for me.

I’m just glad we just came out with the win.”James committed six turnovers and went 2 of 8 from the free-throw line but closed in on 30,000 career points, Thomas scored 21 and came through in crunch time and the Cavs got their fourth win in 13 games.However, some of the same problems — defensive lapses, stagnant offense — that have plagued the Cavs for much of the season resurfaced in the second half, when Orlando outscored Cleveland 56-37.“Obviously we know we’ve been struggling as of late,” James said. “We’re just trying to figure out how we can put two halves together. Obviously we had a great first half on Monday (against Golden State), great first half today and the same result. So we’ve got to keep pushing, keep watching film and seeing ways we can be better.”James scored 16 and now needs 25 to become the seventh player in NBA history to reach 30,000.
