The Wichita Eagle says that the general manager of the Liberal Bee Jays team, Mike Carlile, confirmed late on Sunday the death of Kaiser Carlile.The boy was struck by a follow-through swing near the on-deck circle on Saturday afternoon. A spokesman for the National Baseball Congress says the child was wearing a helmet, which is mandatory. Home-plate umpire Mark Goldfeder, who is a longtime paramedic, treated the boy until an ambulance arrived. The team played a game on Sunday, winning 8-0. The National Baseball Congress is made up of amateur and semi-professional teams.Husbands dominates Woodbine weekendTORONTO, Canada (CMC):Veteran Barbadian rider, Patrick Husbands, snatched victory with 8-5 favourite Florida One in Sunday’s CAN$162,100 Grade Three Seagram Cup, to win his fourth added-money race of the Woodbine season and complete a hugely successful weekend at the prestigious Toronto oval.In a competitive contest over a mile and sixteenth on polytrack, Husbands managed to stave off the fast-finishing Pender Harbour on the inside, to claim victory by half-length in a time of one minute, 43.33 seconds.The victory was part of a double on the nine-race card for Husbands, who also scored in race four with 4-1 chance Hot Hot Heat, when he made all the running with the four-year-old colt to beat the three-year-olds and upward by half-length over a mile and sixteenth.Husbands also stole the feature race on Saturday’s 10-race card, producing a brilliant ride aboard 9-1 bet Bear’s Pride to get the better of the three-year-olds and upward fillies and mares, in the $126,600 Victoriana Stakes.Etienne returned as DFA presidentROSEAU, Dominica (CMC):Glen Etienne has been given an overwhelming mandate to serve as president of the Dominica Football Association, after convincingly beating out his rivals to gain re-election here Saturday. He secured 36 votes to easily win the election, which took place during a marathon six-hour annualgeneral meeting and against the backdrop of raging controversy over the leadership of the organisation.Challenger Ibrahim Brohim finished with just 12 votes, Ronaldo Isidore got seven, while former president Dexter Francis secured just a single vote.The DFA has been embroiled in controversy in recent time, with Francis challenging Etienne’s initial appointment in court and managing to have a previously scheduled AGM postponed. However, football’s world governing body, FIFA, had warned the DFA to settle the matter internally or face sanctions.FIFA official Howard McIntosh and FIFA legalofficer Marco Leal oversaw the elections.Missing Special Olympics athleteturns upLOS ANGELES (AP):An Albanian athlete who disappeared from the Special Olympics in Los Angeles turned up safe Monday, 350 miles (563 kilometers) away in a San Francisco Bay Area city. Andi Gusmari, 44, came to the Hayward Police Department on his own early Monday and used a lobby phone to contact a dispatcher, said acting lieutenant Guy Jakub.Gusmari, who had his documents with him, was safe and comfortable, but police were not able to communicate very well with him because of his speech disability, Jakub said. Gusmari, a bowling competitor, disappeared from the University of Southern California sometime Saturday night. How he travelled from Los Angeles to Hayward, east of San Francisco, remained a mystery.”We all want to know,” Jakub said. “We’re glad he’s safe.”last_img read more

STETHS beat Dinthill in a rain drenched Ben Francis KO classic

first_img Murray, who earlier gave Dinthill the lead during regulation time, missed in the shoot-out as his shot was saved by the STETHS custodian to send the game into sudden death. It took the defending champions three additional kicks for the win, after Shemar Brooks missed for Dinthill, with the scoreline finally settling at 7-6. The Anthony Patrick-coached Dinthill had themselves to blame as they thought on two separate occasions they had won the game. Jahmari Ranger found his range with a blistering shot from just inside the 18-yard area for the 1-0 lead in the 86th minute. The defending champions responded as champions should do. Their top marksman, Michael ‘Diddy’ Kerr, profited from a botched attempt at a clearance and he rounded George Brown in the Dinthill goal to equalise in injury time (90+2) for his 28th goal of the season. That goal pushed the game into extra time and Dinthill took the lead again, this time from the penalty spot through Rodave Murray, who calmly stepped up to stroke the ball firmly into the goal at 2-1. However, McCulloch hammered in an absolutely sweet left-footed shot to even things up once again for STETHS, who dominated the game in large chunks. “Belief was our ally today; we believed we could win even when falling behind,” said STETHS coach Omar Wedderburn. On Monday, Dwainey Williams’ goal deep into the second period of extra time carried Manchester High to a come-from-behind 2-1 win over Lennon High and into the final. Lennon, buoyed by their emphatic beating of a stellar Petersfield High team in the quarter-finals last week, jumped to an early lead when Chawayne Nelson netted in the eighth minute. However, Manchester drew level in time added after 90 minutes of pulsating action, with Romaine Walsh getting the goal. Then with 108 minutes on the clock, Williams struck a goal that sent his team into the final with a 2-1 scoreline. – Click link for more Schoolboy Football photos.http://jamaica-gleaner.com/myreport/schoolboy#mid=&offset=&page=&s= Murray missed penalty WESTERN BUREAU: St Elizabeth Technical High School (STETHS) stayed alive to defend their Ben Francis KO title after coming within a kick of losing to Dinthill Technical yesterday. They ended up edging a drama-filled semi-final 7-6 by virtue of sudden-death penalty at Manchester High School. They will now face Manchester High in Friday’s final at Juice Field in Clarendon Park. Kicks from the spot began badly for STETHS, as Trevar McCulloch’s effort was brilliantly saved by Dinthill goalkeeper George Brown. Michael Kerr, Shawn Genus, Dwayne Foster and Glendon Gopaul scored for STETHS, while Antoine Rhule, Jahmari Ranger, Danchennel Goulbourne and goalkeeper Brown netted for Dinthill.last_img read more

Red Force into final after whipping Jaguars

first_imgPORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Reigning champions Trinidad and Tobago Red Force stormed into the final of the Regional Super50 when they produced a clinical bowling performance to whip Guyana Jaguars by 54 runs in the semi-final here Wednesday night.In a repeat of last year’s final, Red Force raised a competitive 259 for nine off their 50 overs and then used their spin attack on a turning Queen’s Park Oval track, to bundle out Jaguars for a disappointing 205 off 48.3 overs.Left-hander Darren Bravo missed out on a sixth regional one-day hundred when he fell for 95 while West Indies teammate Denesh Ramdin weighed in with an attacking 43 off 44 balls and Kjorn Ottley, a well-played 33 off 62 deliveries.Left-arm spinner Veerasammy Permaul was the leading bowler with three for 56 while off-spinner Steven Jacobs (2-12) and seamer Paul Wintz (2-67) picked up two wickets apiece.In reply, Jaguars suffered from a sluggish start before losing wickets steadily as the Red Force spinners crippled the innings.Wicketkeeper Anthony Bramble resisted with a cameo 51 while Paul Wintz struck 26. Chris Barnwell got 22 and captain Leon Johnson and opener Vishaul Singh both scored 20.The damage was done by Jon-Russ Jaggesar who claimed three for 36 while fellow off-spinner Narsingh Deonarine (2-35) and left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (2-42) picked up two wickets apiece.Red Force will now await the winners of last night’s second semi-final between Barbados Pride and Windward Islands Volcanoes, to know their opponents in tomorrow’s final.last_img read more
