By Frederick HalleyTORONTO, Canada — Attempts by the Ontario Softball Cricket League (OSCL) to reintroduce white balls into the 2017 season, set to commence in May, were met with mixed reaction by its members at Sunday’s annual general meeting, held at the Agincourt Community Centre, Scarborough here.Confusion reigned over whether the balls should be used for all three of the league’s tournaments, namely the T10, 15-over and 20-over regular season matches with some teams maintaining they should be used for all three while some reasoned they should only be used for the T10 as was done in 2015.On the other hand, some teams complained bitterly that the white balls shouldn’t be used at all, citing safety as their main concerns since they felt the conditions of the grounds here weren’t suitable to that type of balls.After heated debates and deliberations, the OSCL executives decided to shelve the idea, thereby reverting to the use of the supreme balls for the upcoming season.The white balls, which are used exclusively in Guyana, New York, Florida and Orlando where international tournaments are being held annually, were introduced here by the OSCL in its T10 tournament in 2015. However, following complaints by members at the 2016 annual general meeting, the league discontinued their use.Among the other major decisions taken at the meeting were to separate the A and B conferences for the T10 and 15-over tournaments with each conference having its own play-off and championship game, all no-balls be free hits and no-balls be called for deliveries above the shoulder in a standing position. Super overs will also be used in case of tied games and no games shall go beyond the scheduled time, except in the case of a tie-breaker.Previously, the A and B conference teams were bunched together for the T10 and 15-over tournaments and played against the other, depending on the draws but several B division teams felt it was an unfair advantage.Giving an overview of his stewardship, long-standing president Albert Ramcharran described 2016 as one of the most challenging seasons “but thanks to the efforts of our hard-working executives and the sober heads of most of our players, we have been able to overcome most of the obstacles.”According to Ramcharran, there are a few members within the OSCL ho are bent and making every effort to bring disrepute to the league. He referred to incidents on and off the field as ample proof of his disclosure.Ramcharran however pointed out that he would like to reiterate that while overall, the discipline could be considered quite satisfactory during the last season, a few issues still remained unsettled and worrying but the league intends to deal with them very firmly. “We have no intentions of sitting idly by and let anyone ruin what we have striven to build in 21 years.”Ramcharran also announced that the OSCL will once again engage the umpires prior to the start of the new season to explore and find a common ground on several matters, including the contentious issue of pelting.The OSCL, Ramcharran pointed out, has embarked on an initiative to assist the needy in Guyana on an annual basis and late last year donated cash to the Red Cross Convalescent Home and for this year, another charitable organisation will benefit.The OSCL president extended sincere thanks to the several sponsors, including Home Trust, Harri Sukhu and Norman Sue Bakery for their continued support.Based on the constitution, only three posts were contested at the meeting, that of vice-president, assistant secretary/treasurer and assistant registrar/statistician. All three incumbents, Terry Mathura, Bobby Ramlagan and Ranjan Persaud respectively were returned unopposed.The entire executives read: Albert Ramcharran – president; Terry Mathura – vice-president; Frederick Halley – secretary/Public Relations Officer; Kim Sue – treasurer; Vish Jadunauth – East end coordinator; Patrick Prashad – registrar/statistician, Bobby Ramlagan – assistant secretary/treasurer and Ranjan Persaud – assistant registrar/statistician.The five members of the disciplinary committee, which is being chaired by Mathura, were also returned unopposed. They are Ian Baldeo, Nandalall Bodo, Nazir Khan, Rudy Bhoopaul and Pooran (Rajin) Roopchand.

Confirmation from the Guyana Motor Racing and Sports Club’s (GMR&SC) office yesterday confirmed that just over 30 persons had been registered.According to the club, competitors are now coming in to register ahead of this weekend’s event.Club vice-president Hansraj Singh contended that “we had a meeting on Monday night to make the guys aware of some of the stuff that we are doing for the race meet.“After that, we were able to register some of the guys for the event and more keep coming in. We estimate over 50 cars on the day turning up to the event.”In addition to the cars, we also have bikes that are being registered, those guys have already asked us to set aside time for them as their category might have around 20 bikes.“So all in all, we expect a really packed day of racing. We just need competitors to turn up early so we can run on schedule and everything could be on-stream.”Singh is urging the remaining competitors to get registered as quickly as possible, with the club looking to close registration by Saturday.Sponsors include ISG, DEL CO ICE, R.

As Van Chew spoke on Wednesday afternoon, there was a sense of irony between his words and the backdrop behind him.Seated in front of a large panorama of the Carrier Dome displaying the kickoff from Greg Robinson’s first game as head coach — Sept. 4, 2005, Syracuse versus West Virginia — the SU wide receiver discussed getting over this past weekend, one of the most embarrassing losses for the Orange since Robinson ceased to be SU’s coach almost three years ago.‘We basically just laid that game to rest,’ Chew said. ‘And during the week we’re just going back to our fundamentals.’Last Saturday’s five-turnover implosion against Rutgers was similar to the game that started the Robinson era against WVU. In that game, a dreadful 15-7 loss for SU, the Orange turned the ball over twice, gained just 103 yards of total offense and went 0-of-15 on third down. All while forcing five turnovers in a superb defensive performance for the losing side.But that game started a 1-10 campaign and set the tone for the darkest era in Syracuse football history. Last Saturday’s loss, though, can just be a blip — a bad day for the SU stock in an otherwise rising season under head coach Doug Marrone.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTo ensure the loss to Rutgers is just a minor downtick, this week is integral for SU. The Orange plays a horrendous — absolutely horrendous — Tulane team. A Tulane team that, despite having two wins, has a coach that’s on the hot seat.The Green Wave lost 45-6 to Army and gave up 33 points to Southeastern Louisiana, a Football Championship Subdivision team that sits at 1-4.I won’t call it a must-win game for Syracuse, but it’s a really, really need-to-win game.‘It’s real important,’ Chew said. ‘Because if we go into the bye week with a losing streak, it’s going to be real bad, and it’s going to sit in people’s heads for the whole week. So we just got to strap up and be prepared for Saturday.’Syracuse needs to knock around the Green Wave. If not, if Tulane hangs around and finds a way to win, SU finds itself sitting at 3-3 at the midway point of the season.The Orange would be a .500 team without a sure win left on the schedule and bowl eligibility not even close to guaranteed. The panic buttons that were pressed after Saturday would be hammered until they broke.‘We’re not really focused too much on the future, but I’d say this is a very important game,’ said Dan Vaughan, an SU linebacker and the team’s leading tackler. ‘We can’t let one loss lead to another, so we’re just focused on Tulane.’Plus, Syracuse should simply be able to knock around the Green Wave. This game shouldn’t be close. The Orange has a goal to compete for the Big East title, and Tulane is borderline dysfunctional. Its head coach, Bob Toledo, spent this week lashing out at naysayers and bandwagon jumpers.But giving up 33, 48 and 45 points to Southeastern Louisiana, Duke and Army could make even the most loyal die-hard consider taking a leap.‘We, as coaches, don’t coach some of the things that are going on,’ Toledo said in a press conference on Tuesday. ‘ … To throw interceptions, to fumble and get beat deep. We don’t coach them to do that, but that’s part of the game. Unfortunately, it’s happened to us, and it’s happened to us numerous times.’The SU defense just forced four turnovers against Rutgers. This is a game to wreak havoc, hit the quarterback, get up a few touchdowns and watch the backups play.Right?‘The one thing that we’re dealing with is again a situation where you’re up on a team and how do you get to that next score to really put the game, to some extent, out of reach,’ Marrone said in his Wednesday teleconference. ‘That’s the situation that we haven’t been in before.’It’s a situation that the great teams find themselves in all the time. The top teams in the Big East this season have done it. West Virginia beat Bowling Green 55-10. South Florida topped Texas- El Paso 52-24. Syracuse failed in its first opportunity to pick up a comfortable win, squeaking one out over Rhode Island.The damage done by the G-Rob era is still visible. Mediocre attendance. A fan base whose belief wavers week to week.Losses to Akron and Miami (Ohio) and a single-digit win over Northeastern define those years.A big win over Tulane would show a difference. And maybe, someday, it could help lead to a new backdrop for players to sit before.Mark Cooper is an asst. sports editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

Published on February 9, 2018 at 9:43 pm Contact Nick: email@example.com | @nick_a_alvarez Facebook Twitter Google+ The 2018 Syracuse season started in a similar way to how the 2017 campaign ended. Last season, in SU’s first game of the NCAA tournament, Boston College scored in the first minute and jumped out to an early lead against a Syracuse team at home en route to a 21-10 BC upset. The first couple sequences of the Orange’s Friday matchup against UConn hinted at another massive upset. Syracuse lost the opening draw and watched as Connecticut’s Sydney Watson burst by Ella Simkins en route to the game’s first goal. The sequence took 40 seconds. Less than a minute later, Watson dusted another SU defender and doubled the Huskies’ lead. It was 2-0 before the home team possessed the ball. “I thought the first half,” head coach Gary Gait said, “we showed a little bit of the rust … I think we came out and we were very focused on what we were supposed to do individually, and the communication wasn’t there.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU’s “rust” came in the form of eight first-half goals allowed, the most its given up in the first half in a season-opener in more than 16 years. No. 7 Syracuse’s (1-0) lackluster defense made it a one-goal game at halftime in what would eventually turn into a 23-11 rout of Connecticut (0-1) in the Carrier Dome. The score at the break would have been worse if not for five free-position shot saves from Asa Goldstock, who finished with 11 stops total. Aside from junior Alexa Radziewicz, who started every game last season, SU entered the game with three new starters on its backline. Senior Mia DiBello started 10 games a year ago, and sophomore Kerry Defliese and Simkins had nine game appearances and zero starts under their belt. The youth, coupled with SU adjusting to a new man-to-man defense, kept the game closer than it needed to be, and the Orange almost paid for it. “We let two players kind of dominate that first half,” Gait said. “… In the first half it was really the dodgers dodging hard. We were sliding, but didn’t have a backup.” Syracuse struggled to stop UConn’s Grace Nolan and the aforementioned Watson. The pair scored six of UConn’s eight first-half goals and Nolan, who scored 44 goals a year ago, gave the Huskies a 3-2 lead seven minutes into the game. The senior juked DiBello behind the net, darted in front of Orange goalie Goldstock, caught a pass and in one swift motion finished the play with a low shot between Goldstock’s legs. With the game knotted at four with 12 minutes left in the half, Nolan charged at the net and watched two SU defenders trip over and crash into one another. Nolan found herself a few feet away from Goldstock and converted the premium opportunity. “In the first half, like coach said, we weren’t communicating as well,” Defliese said after the game. The Orange primarily implemented a zone-based defense in years past. Before this season, Gait said he would start to use a man-to-man scheme. The 11-year head coach said it would be an important tool to “fall back on” but in the season opener, SU relied on its new tactic, even though it didn’t work as well as it wanted to. It switched on ball screens, pressed high on defenders above the eight-meter and collapsed on the many instances when a player broke free inside. Sometimes, the help didn’t come fast enough, and UConn made its chances count. With the visitors up one, Watson beat two SU defenders and worked her way to the right side of Goldstock. Watson swung her stick up high and finished over Goldstock. Before the referees could place the ball at the X for the draw, Gait had called a timeout, and associate head coach Regy Thorpe was jotting down plays on a notepad. Part of the issue came from SU’s poor draw control performance, Gait said. UConn won 12 of the 18 first half draws and was able to pressure Syracuse from the onset. While Syracuse went on a 7-0 run to start the second half as a result of an improved draw control, the shaky defense was protected and only gave up three second-half goals. “We were getting slides late and they are scoring on the one-on-one,” Gait said. “Or we double quick but we didn’t have a second slide. That’s all communication, that’s all stuff we will continue to work on.” For a Syracuse team looking to rebound from its worst record in six years and replace a bulk of its defense, it will have to.

The trio devised a plan and drove to the victim’s residence. Upon arrival, Duel convinced the victim, Kenneth McMullen that she was having car trouble and needed his help. When he went outside he was ambushed by both Keating and McMurren, and was struck in the head with a metal and wooden object multiple times.McMullen was taken to St. Mary’s Hospital in Saginaw for an extensive head injury. These injuries required surgery and have had long–lasting and life-changing effects.After an almost year long investigation, authorities made the connection between Keating and McMullen, leading to the arrest of the three individuals. Duel later testified that it was their intent to tie up the McMullens and steal money and tools to sell for drug money.Both Keating and McMurren pleaded guilty to four charges including breaking and entering and assault with intent to do great bodily harm less than murder. Keating was sentenced to 12 years and 8 months to 30 years. McMurren was sentenced to 11 to 30 years.Kayley Duel also pleaded guilty and was sentenced to serve one year in the Alcona County Jail.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: Alcona County Jail, Alcona County Sheriff’s OfficeContinue ReadingPrevious Spruce man to appear in courtNext Luzerne resident charged with four counts including brandishing a firearm
