Home' Trinidad and Tobago Guardian : April 4th 2015 Contents Clarke Road eased into the finals
of the UWI T20 competition as
national player Yannick Ottley struck
a half century to propel the southern
based team to a 32-run win over
Moosai at the Sir Frank Worrell
Ground in St Augustine, UWI.
Right-handed Ottley, who repre-
sented T&T in the recently concluded
Regional Four-Day tournament,
cracked an even 50 as Clarke Road
posted 139/8. Barbadian Kyle Mayers
boosted the team s total with a knock
of 35. Bowling for Moosai, Isaiah Rajah
grabbed 3/29 and Oba Thomas picked
After a short delay due to rain, Moo-
sai was set 129 in 18 overs. Moosai
faced an uphill climb when it was
reduced to 42/4 after ten overs. After
Ottley s older brother Kjorn took an
excellent catch to dismiss Jahron Alfred
for 36, Moosai was limited to 79/6 in
15 overs. Requiring 50 from the last
three overs, Moosai could only get to
96/9. Samuel Roopnarine (3/12) and
Kerwin Sirju (3/29) both grabbed three
wickets for Clarke Road.
Up to press time, defending cham-
pions Merry Boys were in battle against

The leading athletes from 26 countries across
the region will do battle in the Under-18 and
U-20 categories over the Easter weekend.
Yesterday, teams had their first practice ses-
sions for the showpiece which organisers expects
to attract large crowds, with St kitts hosting
Carifta for the second time in seven years.
The hosts will field a 37-member contingent
and will be hoping to increase their haul this
year, after picking up three medals last year
when the meet was staged in the French
Caribbean island of Martinique.
As usual, powerhouses Jamaica will be
expected to dominate the Games, with their
78-member strong contingent tipped to be the
ones to beat yet again.
Their squad will be headlined by the out-
standing Jaheel Hyde, the World Junior 400
metres and Youth Olympic Games 110m hurdles
Jamaica won 89 medals last year -- 42 gold,
34 silver and 13 bronze -- and will be going all
out to better that mark. The powerful Jamaicans
have won all but five of the meets over the
Carifta Games history.
T&T finished second to Jamaica last year
with 25 medals.
Barbados, meanwhile, who did well to pick
up 16 medals in Martinique, will have a 26-
member squad to the Games.
Included is Sada Williams, the reigning girls
U-18 400 metres champion; Rivaldo Leacock,
who took silver in the boys U-18 400m hurdles
and Hayley Matthews, who also claimed silver
in the girls U-18 javelin.
The highlight of the Games will come tonight
when the marquee 100 metres for both boys
and girls are contested.
Tomorrow will be headlined by the sprint
relays across all categories, with the 200m finals
climaxing the championship on Easter Mon-
Today, however, in the evening session, quar-
termilers Jamol Pierre and Jesse Fredericks in
the boys U-20 category; Jacob St Clair and
Judah Taylor (boys U-18); Thyle- Marie Scott
(girls U-20); and Renee Stoddard and Anika
Wolf (girls U-18).
Ashton Gill and Iley Bruce are in the boy U-
20 boys 1,500m final while Akidah Briggs takes
part in the girls U-18 javelin event.

Jones rescues a point
for The Cherries
....with a debut goal
Bournemouth could only draw against
Ipswich which handed the Championship
top spot to Middlesbrough as the league lead-
ership changed hands for the 21st time this
T&T s Kenwyne Jones, on loan from Cardiff,
headed Bournemouth level late on, just three
minutes after coming on for his debut, but
somehow they came away from Portman Road
with only a point after falling behind to an
early goal from Freddie Sears.
Middlesbrough are a point ahead after their
victory against Wigan and this season s Cham-
pionship title race is becoming more reminis-
cent of pass the parcel at a children s party
than a football league title race as no-one can
get a grip on the main prize.
Eventually, on May 2, the music and cheering
and excitement will go silent, and only one
winner will remain.
All it took was a split second lapse in con-
centration from Bournemouth s defence and
they were behind in only the sixth minute.
The first half was still taking shape when Daryl
Murphy was afforded time and space on the
right inside the box to bring a cross under
control with a lovely touch and pass into Sears
to fire in first-time.
Ipswich striker Sears, formerly of West Ham,
was so free he looked over to the linesman,
fearing he was offside, but the flag stayed
down and he notched up his 19th goal of the

have been at the break, given his side went

Andrew Surman and Harry Arter narrowly
missed early chances, but Ipswich then had
to rely on goalkeeper Bartosz Bialkowski to
keep them ahead.
