T&T Red Force again

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC):Trinidad and Tobago Red Force retained their Regional Super50 title after brushing aside Barbados Pride by 72 runs in the final at Queen’s Park Oval last night.The reigning champions piled up 270 for seven before producing a clinical bowling performance to bundle out Pride for a disappointing 198 off 42.5 overs.They reduced Pride to 31 for four in the 10th over, a situation the visitors failed to recover from despite a top score of 50 from West Indies batsman Shai Hope and an attacking 46 from all-rounder Carlos Brathwaite.FLICKER OF HOPEThe pair put on 59 for the seventh wicket to give Pride a flicker of hope, but once they were separated, another three wickets fell for ten runs as Red Force reasserted control.Tail-enders Sulieman Benn and Jomel Warrican frustrated Red Force, however, adding a breezy 49 for the last wicket.Benn struck a run-a-ball 27 not out while Warrican made 24 from 31 deliveries before he missed a heave at seamer Rayad Emrit and was bowled, sparking celebrations among the Red Force faithful.Emrit was the best bowler with three for 46, while off-spinner Jon-Russ Jagessar (2-30), fast bowler Marlon Richards (2-38) and left-arm spinner Akeal Hosein (2-55) all finished with two wickets each.Earlier, stylish left-hander Darren Bravo agonisingly missed out on three figures as Red Force prospered after being sent in.Bravo made 97 while opener Kyle Hope stroked 34, captain Jason Mohammed, 31, and Denesh Ramdin 26.Bravo’s knock, his third half-century in as many innings in the tournament, was laced with eight fours and two sixes and came from 104 balls.Carlos Brathwaite took two for 54 with his medium pace.last_img read more

H View hold advantage in race for fourth spot

first_img – 8:40 p.m.: Montego Bay United vs Portmore United – Montego Bay Sports Complex Today’s Games – 3:30 p.m.: Boys’ Town vs Harbour View – Barbican Stadium – 3:30 p.m.: Reno vs Tivoli Gardens – Frome Complex – 3:30 p.m.: Humble Lion vs Waterhouse – Effortville Community Centre – 3:30 p.m.: Rivoli United FC vs Cavalier – Prison Oval – 3:30 p.m.: UWI FC vs Arnett Gardens – UWI Bowl, Mona POINTS STANDING Former champions Harbour View will go into today’s set of matches in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) with the advantage as the battle for the fourth place continues. The stars of the East, as Harbour View are dubbed, currently occupy the fourth spot on 39 points, the same as UWI FC, but with a superior goal difference. What gives them the edge today is the match-up. While Harbour View will play away to the inconsistent Boys Town, UWI FC will host defending champions and the team occupying second spot, Arnett Gardens. Of the opposing teams, Boys’ Town are the easier of the two while only a brave person would bet against Arnett Gardens defeating UWI FC. Arnett Gardens are filled with ammunition and with the likes of the in-form Michaelous Martin, their leading scorer Kemal Malcolm, Leon Strickland and Newton Sterling. Any of those forwards can provide the goods on the day. With UWI FC’s slow defensive unit and Deno Schaffe being out, it will take a major effort to keep Arnett Gardens off the score sheet. UWI FC are also capable of finding the back of the net through Girvon Brown, Anthony, Grant, Anthony Greenland and Kemar Cummings. Since his return to the island from the USA, Brian Brown has been in good goal-scoring form and is expected to lead the Harbour View attack against Boys’ Town.

Marshals nab tax cheats by posing as supporters

first_imgCONCORD, N.H. – U.S. marshals posing as supporters arrested convicted tax-evaders Ed and Elaine Brown at their rural, fortress-like home, the head marshal said Friday. “They invited us in, and we escorted them out,” U.S. Marshal Stephen Monier said, releasing the first details of Thursday night’s arrests. A small team of marshals pulled off the ruse, arresting the Browns without incident on the front porch of their Plainfield home in west-central New Hampshire, Monier said. The arrests ended a months-long standoff that began in January, when Brown, 65, a retired exterminator, and his dentist wife, 67, walked out of their federal trial in Concord. She returned to the trial but soon joined her husband at home, where they vowed to resist violently if authorities tried to arrest them. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

At a news conference, Monier said officials found booby traps in the woods on the 100-plus-acre property and weapons, ammunition and homemade bombs inside and outside the house. He said more charges are likely. The couple claims the federal income tax is not legitimate.last_img read more

Convicted killer to serve 50 to life

first_imgA 19-year-old gang member was sentenced Wednesday to 50 years to life in prison for gunning down an innocent man in front of the victim’s Hacienda Heights home. Juan Tovar was sentenced to 25years to life for first-degree murder and another 25 to life for using a gun to shoot James Ramos, 50. Tovar and co-defendant Anne Marie Harrison, 24, had mistaken Ramos for an informant who testified against a fellow gang member. Ramos had no connection to the gang member, authorities said. Pomona Superior Court Judge Charles Horan expressed sympathy for Ramos’s widow and sons. “Unfortunately, this is not that unusual. … This is business as usual in Southern California,” he said. “It happens because people let their children wear gang clothes, shave their heads, get tattoos and live a gang life,” he said. “This was an innocent family man trying to get to work.” Ramos was getting ready to go to his early-morning shift at Albertsons, where he had worked for 30 years. But on March 2, 2004, around 3 a.m., his car wouldn’t start. As he tried to change the battery, Tovar and Harrison pulled up alongside him and Tovar fired a shotgun round into Ramos. Harrison, the driver, was convicted of second-degree murder. According to witness testimony, she pointed out the home and encouraged Tovar to shoot. Her sentencing has been delayed until March 17 because she has switched attorneys and the attorney needs time to prepare for the sentencing, the court heard. The case remained unsolved a year later, until an anonymous tip came from a person who read a newspaper story about the one-year anniversary of the shooting. Tovar and Harrison were arrested in July. Family members spoke to the judge before the sentencing. Joseph Ramos, the second of Ramos’ three sons, told the court that for a long time after the murder he tried to come up with reasons why his father was killed. “I went through every possibility. … I couldn’t bring myself to believe my father died for no reason,” he said. Vivian Ramos, the victim’s wife, said she was making coffee and lunch for her husband at 3 a.m. the morning of the murder. She wanted to help with the car, but Ramos told her to go back inside because it was raining and cold, she said. They were married 32 years. “He was my provider, my protector,” she said. “Even with his last breath he wanted to protect me.” Tovar appeared to be listening to the family’s statements, but did not show emotion. Tovar’s attorney, James Horan, had argued during the trial that Tovar took credit for a murder he didn’t commit in order to elevate his gang status, and he couldn’t backtrack even after he was arrested. Detectives had a tape of Tovar discussing the murder with a fellow gang member in a prison cell, not knowing he was being recorded. shirley.hsu@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 2306 AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Paulinho on surprise Barcelona move: ‘I hope things can be resolved this week’

first_img Former Tottenham midfielder is close to sealing a shock move to Barcelona 1 Former Tottenham midfielder Paulinho is hoping to force through a move to Barcelona by Friday.The Brazilian, who spent two seasons at White Hart Lane from 2013 to 2015, is currently plying his trade for Chinese side Guangzhou Evergrande.However, Barcelona are interested in the 28-year-old and they have reportedly already failed with a bid of £17.5million.READ MORE: ‘Barcelona are a finished club!’ Football fans react to shock Paulinho transfer newsTime is running out for the Spanish side, though, as the transfer window in China closes on Friday – but Paulinho is hoping a move can get over the line.“I have to speak with the [Guangzhou Evergrande] president,” Paulinho told El Mundo Deportivo.“But since I received the offer from Barca I’ve not stopped thinking about it and I hope things can be resolved this week.“I asked my agent to speed everything up so that it can all be resolved this week because the transfer window shuts soon. That doesn’t affect me leaving, but it would prevent Guangzhou signing a replacement.“If the two clubs reach an agreement, everything between me and Barca will be very easy.“When I was at Corinthians I turned down an offer to move to Russia worth 10 times what I was earning in Brazil – it’s not about money.”last_img read more

OISIN McCONVILLE: McGUINNESS IS WRONG OVER INJURY CLAIMS

first_imgARMAGH GAA star and media pundit Oisin McConville has disagreed with Donegal manager Jim McGuinness over the Glenties man’s claims about serious injuries to his players.Speaking to RTE Radio One, McConville said he believed injuries suffered by Mark McHugh in the clash with Monaghan was an accident.He responded to comments by both Karl Lacey and Jim McGuinness on the affair. “There will always be players who will be targeted and dished out a bit of treatment,” said McConville.“If Colm McFadden had have been taken out of the game (by Laois) then Donegal would simply not have won the game.“Laois didn’t do that, they didn’t take him out…ok he was given some treatment, he was hit hard and he was tackled hard. Most players get plenty of protection from the referee.”McConville instead said McGuinness had made the comments because he was under pressure. “The cupboard is a little bit bare,” said the Armagh man.“Jim McGuinness could be using this for a siege mentality; rally the troops, you know, everybody is against us. We’re here on our own.“I can’t blame him for doing that. He is going to do whatever he can to hold onto the All-Ireland title but they are struggling.” OISIN McCONVILLE: McGUINNESS IS WRONG OVER INJURY CLAIMS was last modified: July 29th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img read more
