Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : January 16th 2015 Contents However, in their last outing, a 3-2 defeat
at the hands of Defence Force, the St Ann’s-
based club rallied from 2-0 down to level
the match at 2-2 before Devorn Jorsling
struck a winner for the “Teteron Boys” and
Spence will be hoping his players show the
same fighting spirit if they are to stand a
chance of avoiding a fourth straight loss.
In the second match tonight at Couva,
Caledonia, fifth on the table with 11 points
will have its eyes set on leap frogging North
East Stars (14 pts) and Defence Force (13)
into third spot when it faces second from
bottom Pt Fortin Civic, two hours later.
In their first round meeting the
Morvant/Laventille club eked out a 2-1 vic-
tory, but it has suffered defeats in its last
two outings to Stars (1-2) and W Connection
(0-3) while Pt Fortin won over Police 2-0,
for its tenth points from a possible 12 iits
last four matches.
Tomorrow, at the Marvin Lee Stadium,
Macoya, Defence Force tackles North East
Stars at 5 pm followed by Jabloteh and Police.
Central FC, buoyed by securing the inaugural
$35,000 Rawle Fletcher Trophy as round one win-
ners of the Digicel T&T Pro League on goal-dif-
ference from reigning league champions DirecTV
W Connection, will now hope for a winning start
to Akeem Adams Round Two which kicks off today.
Both Central FC and W Connection ended their
eight-match round one campaign with 17 points each
and a goal-difference of plus-15. However, Central
tops the table by virture of scoring more goals than
its Couva neighbours.
And the Zoran Vranes-coached “Sharks” who have
already retained their First Citizens Cup title will
surely we sharpening their teeths for another high
scoring affair when they come up against cellar-
placed St Ann’s Rangers, at the Ato Boldon Stadium,
Couva, from 6 pm today.
When both teams met on the opening day of the
season last September, Central ran out comfortable
7-0 victors led by a double from veteran Marvin
Oliver and based on its four-match unbeaten league
run, another three points should be on the cards.
The Jason Spence-coached Rangers, on the oth-
erhand are yet to taste victory in the league and have
only a point from a 1-1 draw with Caledonia AIA
back in November, which was followed by three
straight league defeats.

Former national boxer Ria Ramnarine has
launched the ‘Boxing Beyond the Ring’ programme
geared towards teaching particpants about the added
benefits of boxing—living a healthy lifestyle, empow-
erment, increasing self-efficiency and self-defence.
At the launch yesterday at the VIP Room of the
Hasely Crawford Stadium, Port-of-Spain, Ramnarine
explained the mission of the programme.
Ramnarine said: “The mission is to encourage
female participation in boxing through a training
programme which enables participants to understand
that apart from the sport outcomes, the physiological
and psychological benefits of boxing lead to an increase
in self-efficacy, empowerment and personal safety.”
Ramnarine spoke about the number of women
who are victims of sexual offence crimes. “According
to the UN women website, sobering numbers show
that one in three women have experienced physical
or sexual violence, mostly by an intimate partner.”
Ramnarine is also grateful for the assistance lended
by T&T Olympic Committee president Brian Lewis
and his team.
Ramnarine was given the opportunity to participate
at the International Coaching Enrichment Certification
Programme (ICECP) in USA, after being nominted
by Lewis. ICECP helped Ramnarine implement ‘Box-
ing Beyond the Ring.’
The first programme begins tomorrow with ori-
entation and registration, followed by the first training
session on January 24. The next programme begins
in June. For further information call 763-1187 or
