Gone too soon – Lawrence remembers late Duncan as disciplined player

first_imgNational Under-15 coach Aaron Lawrence has described the untimely passing of national youth player Rushawn Duncan as a very sad day for the country’s football. The 14-year-old Duncan, who is from Cricket River in St Mary, was reportedly stabbed to death while playing a prank on his friends on Thursday. Duncan represented the national Under-15 team in three practice games in the Cayman Islands, in preparation for the CONCACAF Under-15 Boys’ Championship. Lawrence said that Duncan’s death came as a big surprise to many because he was always a disciplined player. “He was a quality player, one that could have helped Jamaica’s football for the future,” said Lawrence. “He played centre back, he played right defence, and I think he was somebody that could have made a difference in the Under-17s, in the Under-20s, and even the senior level,” he said. Lawrence added: “He was a man who had size, he had good work ethics, his attitude towards training was excellent and he never gave up. If we put him at right defence, he would go there and play, and if we put him at centre back, he would go there and play, and played to his best. He was more of a utility player.” Lawrence, who is also the coach of newly promoted Red Stripe Premier League side, Sandals Whitehouse, added that Duncan’s death came as a major surprise to everyone. “It is shocking, and it shocked us quite much because we were looking at him as a youngster to make the transition going forward,” Lawrence said. Meanwhile, the Jamaica Football Federation said in a media release that it regrets Duncan’s passing and expresses it’s deepest and sincerest sympathy to his family and peers.

She scored six of her points in the first quarter as St. Anthony (17-7, 2-4), ranked No. 5, led 10-3 at the end of the period. The Saints actually led up until Ashley Ward of St. Matthias scored in the paint right before the buzzer sounded to end the third quarter. The Victorians proceeded to build a four-point lead in the fourth before St. Anthony forged ahead on a 8-1 run of their own on cherry-pick layups by Bramlett. Talor Nixon, St. Anthony’s freshman guard and leading scorer, had a bout with a stomach virus, and finished with only four points and 12 rebounds. “I just told the girls that we’ve got to play 32 minutes,” St. Anthony coach Vince Nicholson said. “We played 30 tonight and somewhere in the last two minutes in the game really made the difference.” The win gave the Victorians (12-11, 4-2), the 11th ranked team in CIF Southern Section Division IV-AA, the 12 victory they needed to earn a berth to the upcoming playoffs and kept them in contention for second place in league with Bell-Jeff. This was all made possible by the heroics of Garica, a freshman guard. She nailed three 3-pointers with a little over two minutes left in the game as St. Matthias outscored the Saints 13-3 to beat them for the second time this season.

We’ve had a tough preseason schedule. We went through an 0-9 stretch. We don’t give up. Even when our point guard got four fouls (tonight), everyone picked it up,” Santisteven said. “This gets us in the playoffs. My kids and I are going through a lot. My mother is in a coma. She has been in one for a week. I have had meetings about pulling the plug three times within a week. I let them know about (her condition) last week. So they are feeling it with me. So it’s a different person coming through each night. My little freshman ( Magli Garcia) can hit 3s and she wanted to get back in.” last_img read more

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESurfer attacked by shark near Channel Islands calls rescue a ‘Christmas miracle’Dantice believes Scotty is probably still in the area, though it’s possible he was taken out of state or out of the country. “We’re not having a raft of horses stolen, though it wouldn’t be unusual for somebody to round up a couple of horses and run them across the border and sell them to make a profit,” Dantice said. Stolen overnight Sept. 9, the buckskin gelding is worth several thousand dollars because of his training, Dantice said. The horse’s most distinctive feature is the gray hair mixed in among its predominantly black mane and tail, the detective added. Anyone with information on the stolen horse was asked to call Dantice at the Palmdale sheriff’s station at (661) 272-2464. AGUA DULCE – A horse thief struck in Agua Dulce. A 3-year-old quarterhorse named Scotty, being trained as a roping horse, was rustled from the corral behind his owner’s house. Los Angeles County Sheriff’s Department Detective Daniel Dantice, working his first stolen-horse case, believes that whoever stole Scotty had planned out the theft and is someone familiar with horses. The thief didn’t take Scotty’s saddle or other gear, though it’s unknown whether the horse was loaded into a trailer or simply led away, Dantice said. last_img read more

Celtic aim to do it again next year, says Scott Sinclair

first_img“We keep the tight group which the manager will want and we hopefully build in that competition.“It’s not just that. Obviously we want to do as well as we can and keep picking up trophies along the way, leagues and all the titles but a main factor is to do well in Europe.“It’s up to the manager [if the squad is good enough for that]. It’s up to him to decide but we can just enjoy what we’ve done right now and celebrate tonight.”Though looking ahead and setting targets for next season, Sinclair said that the key to success this season had been to concentrate on the small steps and let the journey take care of itself. “At the start of the season we never thought we would do the invincible treble but all we’ve done is take each game as it comes and I think that’s the best way to do it,” he said. “It got right up to the last day of the season, today, and we knew what was at stake and had to go and do it.” Scott Sinclair looked ahead after Celtic sealed a domestic treble and said the team will aim for a repeat performance next season.The Premiership and League Cup winners added the Scottish Cup to their trophy haul and completed a domestic season without defeat.Sinclair reflected on a landmark season where he was named as Player of the Year before looking to the challenges ahead.“I think next season we do it again,” he said. “Obviously there’s the Champions League and we want to reach the group stages and progress better than we did this year.last_img read more
