Wolmer’s Boys secured a 2-1win over Vauxhall as they played out the remaining six minutes of their previously rained-out ISSA/Flow Manning Cup encounter at Constant Spring yesterday.The game was originally called off on Monday, with both teams locked at 1-1 due to a waterlogged field.Wolmer’s win adds more pressure for Group H rivals and defending champions Jamaica College (JC), who now sit two points behind, along with Holy Trinity, with whom they drew on Monday.JC must now win their game against Vauxhall next Thursday in a Constant Spring double-header starting at 1 p.m., with Holy Trinity and Wolmer’s facing each other in the feature game at 3 p.m.Wolmer’s and JC will square off in the final group game for both teams in what should be an intriguing contest.Wolmer’s got the go-ahead goal when Stuart Payne cleverly beat the off-side trap to punish them from close range.Wolmer’s coach, Vassell Reynolds, was clearly happy with his team’s improved scoring.”We have now scored five goals in two games, so I think we are improving,” said Reynolds.Also yesterday, Charlie Smith came from behind to secure a 2-1 win over Calabar High in the first game of a Group K double-header.MATCH-WINNING BRACECaptain Shaquille Notice led with a match-winning brace, scoring in the 37th minute and stoppage time of the first half (45+one), despite Romaine Rollins sending Calabar ahead inside 30 minutes.Charlie Smith coach Jerome Waite said the win positions his team nicely.”We showed character to come from behind, and it’s a good feeling, but we still have a lot of work to do,” he stressed.Meanwhile, goal-shy Excelsior fell 0-1 to a fighting Jonathan Grant in the later game.Tyrone Small scored the lone goal in the 40th minute, from Jonathan Grant’s only real chance of the contest, while Excelsior missed several chances from point-blank range.Jonathan Grant coach Oneal Thomas, who himself was a former Excelsior Manning and Walker Cup winner, was happy despite his team’s win over his alma mater.”We don’t really have the equipment to really match up to what Excelsior has, but we are happy with the 1-0,” he said.Following their wins, the group is jointly led by Charlie Smith and Jonathan Grant, respectively, on three points.ISSA is asking spectators to stop stealing the match balls that go outside the grounds, with up to five balls going missing in one game on Monday.
BARCELONA, Spain (AP):Lionel Messi scored with an unstoppable free kick to help Barcelona come from behind to beat Sevilla 2-1 yesterday, a record-equalling 34th game without loss that kept the champions on track to retain their Spanish league title.Sevilla’s Victor “Vitolo” Machin struck first for the visitors in the 20th minute, but Messi curled home his free kick 11 minutes later before Gerard Pique put Barcelona ahead just after half-time.Barcelona equalled Madrid’s record unbeaten streak in all competitions from 1988-89. Barcelona’s last loss in any competition was at Sevilla on October 3.”The record means nothing to me,” said Barcelona coach Luis Enrique. “If we win the title, fine, but, if not, then it means nothing to me.”Luis Enrique’s team is certainly on course to win the league. In fact, they have a chance to repeat their rare treble of league, cup and Champions League trophies from last year.Barcelona’s 10th consecutive Liga win maintained their eight-point lead over second-place Atletico Madrid. Third-place Real Madrid, which lost 1-0 to Atletico on Saturday, fell 12 points behind the pacesetters with 12 rounds to go.Sevilla, which remained dangerous until the final whistle, slipped down to sixth place. Unai Emery’s team will have the opportunity to avenge the defeat when they meet Barcelona in the Copa del Rey final on May 22.”It’s tough for a defeat to strengthen you,” Emery said. “To beat Barca, you have to find that extra something because we are probably talking about the best team in the world.”Elsewhere Sunday, Villarreal eased to a 3-0 win over 10-man Levante to cement their hold on fourth place, while Athletic Bilbao won 3-0 at Valencia in a preview of their Europa League round-of-16 clash.
Fernandez, who helped Jamaica to a historic performance at the FIBA Americas Championships in 2013, where wins over Argentina and Brazil led to a first-time ranking for the Jamaicans, would further confirm his talents in the NCAA system, where his 6′ 10″ frame proved useful with 119 blocked shots in his senior year at Valparaiso University. His performances on the college scene certainly turned some heads and when he declared for the 2016 NBA Draft, the Portland Trailblazers and Toronto Raptors were among those who showed an interest. In the end, it was the Heat who proved to be most serious, stepping in and putting a contract in front of the Jamaican big man. “It came out of nowhere. My agent called me one day and told me they (Heat) wanted me to try out with them. They called me back three weeks after that and told me they were going to sign me. I had to ask myself who could it be but God. He’s the one that is making all of this happen and I just want to give Him all the praise,” Fernandez said. “I am ready for this step. If I need to go get more development, I am good with that, too. This is where I want to be. I am a good defensive player and that is what I can contribute and be a force out there to help this team as much as I can to get a championships,” added Fernandez. The Jamaican, who played two preseason games with the Heat, totalling three points, one rebound and a steal in 14:38 minutes on the court, was yesterday waived by the franchise ahead of the start of the season and is expected to continue his growth at the Heat’s NBA Development League team, the Sioux Falls Skyforce, which is based in South Dakota. Fernandez, who pointed to Hakeem Olajuwon and Heat executive Alonzo Mourning as his inspirations, has been married for almost two years and has two children, who he label as his daily source of motivation. The holder of a bachelors degree and two masters’ degrees, Fernandez is testament to the value of hard work and faith. He hopes that his journey will not only meet his ambitions, but will also inspire those who are looking on. “With everything you do, the sky is the limit. One thing to know is that if you put God first and you are dedicated, then anything is possible. As long as you are doing your part, God will do his part,” Fernandez notes. Vashil Fernandez has certainly come a long way; and in a relatively short space of time. It’s been just about a decade since he started seriously bouncing around a basketball, but after putting pen to paper on a deal with the NBA’s Miami Heat on October 17, the former Calabar High student is one step closer to realising his dream of playing in the world’s top basketball league. “I am definitely pleased to have signed with the Heat, but I am giving all thanks and praise to God on how He has made everything come into play just the way He want it to be. It’s been a long summer of just working hard and trusting Him, being patient and staying calm and praying; just waiting for that moment for the door to open and just walking through it,” Fernandez told the Sunday Gleaner in a recent chat. His story is an interesting one – from being told that he would lose a leg to rising above his challenges and excelling both on the court and in the books, Fernandez is eyeing his biggest leap yet. Living in Moneague, St Ann, with his grandmother, aunt and over 15 siblings and other relatives, Fernandez’s dribble to the top was a matter of chance perhaps – or, as he would say, fate. As a teenager, Fernandez would travel for the better part of three hours from Moneague to Kingston, where he was actually born, to spend time with his mother and babysit his youngest sister. It was on one of these trips to the capital when he would be introduced to Calabar High coach Ludlow Barker. His life would forever change. “I used to come to Kingston every weekend to babysit my youngest sister when my mother had to work, and I was on the street corner with one of my friends who sold coconut water and sugar cane. One of his friends turned up and asked me if I knew how to play basketball and I said, ‘Well, I could learn’. I didn’t know that much about it and he introduced me to Ludlow Barker, my high school coach, and that is where it all started for me.” Barker saw his abilities and when an injury situation threatened to derail his strides, eventually directed him to then Jamaica Basketball Association president Ajani Williams, who, to this day, acts as a mentor to the 24 year old, who, at one point, was told that a leg injury would require amputation. HISTORIC PERFORMANCE
Chairman of the Jamaica Football Rugby Union (JFRU), Jerry Benswick, has issued a call for sponsorship of country’s male and female teams as they gear up for the next year’s HSBC World Series Sevens Tournament in Hong Kong.The tournament which usually attracts some of the best Rugby Sevens teams in the world, will be held from April 7-9.Benswick told The Gleaner that his association is looking to raise $5 million to help with the team’s preparations for the tournament.”We need sponsors now because our training has started, but we are going to kick into full gear come January and we need money right away to start this thing rolling,” said Benswick.”This is a world event and therefore the sponsors can get huge publicity from it because rugby is big all over the world and it is also big in the Caribbean,” he said.PROPER NUTRITION”We need sponsors for gears and so we are looking for people to come on board and help us with this because we want to take these teams as far as they can go,” Benswick said.He added that both teams will need proper nutrition if they are to compete at their best in Hong Kong.”We need a field with lights so that we can train at night’s 0during week. We have a relationship with the JDF (Jamaica Defence Force) so we get to train there (Up Park Camp) on Saturday, but we need three more training days each week,” he said.According to Benswick, Jamaica stands to benefit a lot from this tournament because the HSBC World Series of Sevens is one of the most recognised sporting events in the world.It’s a big deal for us,” he said. We have two teams going, our men also qualified because they came third in the tournament. There are only two Caribbean teams going to this tournament, Jamaica and Guyana.”This is a big stepping stone for most national teams because this is where you go to make your name. If you do well in Hong Kong then you get to continue on the circuit,” Benswick said.
