D-day for some in daCosta Cup

first_imgWestern Bureau:It’s crunch time for the three teams in contention for the top places in Group E of the 2015 ISSA/FLOW daCosta Cup.None can afford to misfire today in what is shaping up as a win-or-go-home scenario.Lacovia High (19 points) will take a three-point lead into their clash with the group’s third-place team Munro College (16). This game will be played at St Elizabeth Technical’s (STETHS) playfield in Santa Cruz. STETHS (18) will meet Newell who have registered a measly two points. They meet at the Treasure Beach Sports Park.With two to advance as automatic qualifiers and the best third-place team also a possibility these match-ups take on added significance.STETHS coach Omar Wedderburn, though pleased with his team’s 4-0 rout of B.B. Coke on Wednesday, knows that to top the group his team will have to win and hopes that rivals Munro can do them an enormous favour by defeating Lacovia.”Come later this evening, we are looking for a three-point result,” Wedderburn told The Gleaner.”We know we have what it takes and are confident that we will defeat Newell. In the same breath, if we are to top the group, Lacovia must lose so we are hoping that Munro will stop them,” Wedderburn said.It is almost a similar storyline in Group H, which features the defending champions Clarendon College. They lead with 15 points, one more than Lennon High (14).The champions are set to meet one of the weakest teams in the group in Thompson Town while Edwin Allen (13 pts), third in the group, will no doubt have three points on their minds when they tackle second-place team Lennon (14).Meanwhile, the free-scoring Manchester High will travel to DeCarteret in their final Group F game, having already secured the top place with a perfect nine wins from as many matches.Today’s matchesGreen Pond vs IrwinFrome vs Rusea’sWilliam Knibb vs Herbert MorrisonSpot Valley vs MuschettMannings vs Maud McLeodPetersfield vs Godfrey StewartMunro vs LacoviaMaggotty vs B.B.

The 5 Takeaways from the Coyotes introduction of

first_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “Healthy competition only makes us better,” head coach Bruce Arians said. “We’ve been consistent that whenever there’s the potential to make our football team better we’re going to explore that opportunity.” Last season, Carpenter connected on all 26 of his extra points and 22-of-27 field goal attempts, including two from 50 yards or more.Feely has been with the Cardinals since 2010 and has been reliable. In 2012, the 37-year-old hit 25-of-28 field goal attempts. But in last Saturday’s preseason win over the Dallas Cowboys, Feely missed a 30-yard attempt which head coach Bruce Arians called “unacceptable.”It is interesting to note that when Carpenter was a rookie in 2008, he beat out Feely for the Dolphins’ kicking job. Feely hooked on with the New York Jets and spent two seasons with them before signing with the Cardinals in 2010.As a result of signing Carpenter, the team released wide receivers Robby Toma and Robert Gill. Suddenly, there’s another position battle going on with the Arizona Cardinals during the final days of training camp in Glendale.The Cardinals have brought in veteran Dan Carpenter on a one-year deal to compete with Jay Feely for the team’s placekicking job.Carpenter, who spent five years in Miami, was released by the team last week. Rookie Caleb Sturgis is expected to take over the kicking duties for the Dolphins. 0 Comments   Share   center_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Top Stories last_img read more
