Powered by ‘Tuffy’ – Anderson’s brace gives Waterhouse first RSPL win

first_img – Rivoli 3-4 Boys’ Town – Tivoli Gardens 2-0 Harbour View – Montego Bay 1-1 Humble Lion – Portmore 1-0 Cavalier Today’s Game: Waterhouse registered their first win of the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) season after scoring a convincing 3-0 win over the University of the West Indies (UWI) at the Drewsland mini-stadium yesterday. Jermaine ‘Tuffy’ Anderson (38th and 81st) led the way with a goal in each half, sandwich by another strike from captain Damarley Samuels (45+2). However, the game ended on a sour note for the hosts as midfielder Romario Campbell was shown the red card in time added. Although not satisfied with the performance, Waterhouse coach Calvert Fitzgerald said the players showed they wanted the ‘monkey off their back’. “I am feeling good (for win) … but I am not pleased with how the team performed. We were a bit lazy, and the coordination wasn’t what I want. “But I credit them for endeavour. They wanted to win, and they showed the ambition to get the monkey off their back, so I am happy for that but not totally happy with how the team performed,” he insisted. The home team took a while to control a spirited UWI team and get the game under their control. They almost took the lead on the half-hour, but Evan Taylor, who had a Man of the Match performance, saw his shot hit the post and roll across the face of the goal. Anderson also came close but Amal Knight was equal to his low strike moments later. They eventually broke the deadlock when Anderson’s header squeezed through Knight’s legs and over the line. The home team continued to dominate, and Samuels made it 2-0 in added time with a low, fierce drive from 20 yards. Waterhouse were again the better team after the break, and they sealed the win nine minutes from time when Anderson got on to the end of Kemar Seivwright’s cross and fired under Knight to make it 3-0. In added time, Campbell was shown the red card for a retaliatory tackle on a UWI player. UWI’s coach, Marcel Gayle, was making his first return as an opposing coach to the club where he coached for more than 15 years. Yesterday’s Results 8:30 p.m. – Arnett Gardens vs Reno at Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.last_img read more

NHL notes: Stars, Turco agree to contract extension

first_img The deal keeps Turco, 30, in Dallas through 2009-10. He becomes another core player the Stars will keep at least through next season, including forward Mike Modano, who was re-signed to a five-year deal last summer. “My belief is that I had to put my stake in the ground and build the team around one player,” Stars general manager Doug Armstrong said prior to their game against the Ducks. “It’s not that one player can win or lose for us, but you have to put a statement, and in my mind a statement player.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan Clarkson Three years ago, Turco set a modern NHL record with a 1.72 goals-against average, beating the former record of 1.77. Turco is 20-11-2 with a 2.44 GAA this season. He is tied for second in the NHL for wins, and his three shutouts are tied for second-most. He will play for Canada in the Olympics next month. Friday, he gave up three goals on the Ducks’ first six shots and was lifted before the second period. Injury update: Atlanta put Bobby Holik on the injured list after the 35-year-old center broke his foot last weekend. Passings: Ken Mosdell, a defensive forward who won three Stanley Cups with the Montreal Canadiens in the 1940s and ’50s, has died at 83. The Dallas Stars have made sure goalie Marty Turco isn’t going anywhere. The two-time All-Star goalie signed a four-year, $22.8 million contract extension that will keep him from becoming an unrestricted free agent at the end of this season. center_img He played in five all-star games from 1951-55. Losing their way: With a league-low 10 wins so far, the St. Louis Blues are in danger of ending the longest playoff streak in professional sports after 25 seasons. In the offseason, St. Louis traded star defenseman Chris Pronger to Edmonton and allowed forward Pavol Demitra to leave as a free agent to the Kings. Plus, longtime defenseman Al MacInnis retired. “It’s been a tough year,” star Doug Weight said after a 3-0 loss in Detroit on Thursday. “We didn’t do a lot in the offseason, other than lose MacInnis, Demitra and Pronger. We’ve been without (Keith) Tkachuk for most of the year because he’s been hurt. We lost our No. 1 goalie, then we got a goalie (Patrick Lalime) that didn’t work out too well for us. “But with the depth and the young guys we have, I still think we can turn things around.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
