All-round T&T beat Guyana by five wickets… Barbados triumph by 99 runs over Leeward IslandsTRINIDAD and Tobago dished out an all-round performance to register an emphatic five-wicket win over Guyana in match two of Cricket West Indies (CWI) Women’s T20 Blaze yesterday at the Guyana National Stadium, Providence.The victory was first set up by a 68-run opening stand between player-of-the-match Stacy Ann King and Lee Ann Kirby, before Britney Cooper put the finishing touches in the run chase.Stacy Ann King sweeps during her knock of 59.(Adrian Narine photos)Earlier, captain Shemaine Campbelle did the bulk of scoring for the Guyanese to guide her team to a commanding 157 for 4 from their allotted 20 overs. However, the visitors reached the target, finishing 161-5 with eight balls to spare.King struck a 48-ball 59, with three fours and a six while Cooper ended with an unbeaten 52 off 26 balls, counting eight fours and a six while Kirby made a 19-ball 31, with three fours and two sixes.The 26-year-old Campbelle lived up to her reputation and was in her element, hitting an unbeaten 77 off just 56 deliveries, counting six fours and three sixes.Deciding to bat first, the hosts got off to a flying start with openers Sheneta Grimmond and Tremayne Smartt scoring 29 runs in the first four overs – helped partly by some wayward bowling from the Trinidadians.Smartt was the more subdued in the early overs, as Grimmond went after the bowling, especially medium-pacer Canesia Isaacs who conceded 16 runs in her first two overs.The right-hander Grimmond had been flowing smoothly when she offered a simple return catch to off-spinner Anisa Mohammed (2-35), for a 17-ball 21, counting four boundaries.Campbelle joined her Berbician counterpart, and kept the momentum going with a 40-ball 36-run second-wicket stand.Britney Cooper hits an unbeaten 52.Change of bowling had worked well for the visitors with Lee Ann Kirby (1-22), effecting the second breakthrough that was desperately needed.Smartt, who batted for a 27-ball 21, was cleverly stumped by Merissa Aguilleira while Shabika Gajnabi was run-out for seven, leaving the Guyanese 79-3.However, Campbelle took charge soon after and her stand with Akaze Thomspon (11) lifted the hosts to 133 at the end of the 19 overs before she ended the innings with consecutive sixes to spoil Karishma Ramharack’s bowling figures.At the start of the run chase the Guyanese women were mindful of their opponents’ batting prowess so there was no margin for error.However, their bowlers were wayward up front. This allowed openers King and Kirby to achieve a solid start of 68 from their aggressive brand of cricket, in the powerplay overs.The Guyanese soon struck a body blow when Thompson dismissed Kirby. The visitors were further reduced to 90-3 at the halfway stage when they lost Reniece Boyce (6), off the bowling of Smartt and Shania Abdool was run-out for two from a direct hit by Gajnabi.With the required run-rate within reach, the right-handed King was joined by Cooper, who also played a solid knock, but the contest was as good as over, as the pair kept up the pressure on their opponents.They stitched together a 58-run partnership to steer their team within nine runs of the victory target.Meanwhile, Barbados easily overpowered their Leeward Islands counterparts by 99 runs in the first encounter.Player-of-the-match Deandra Dottin made 62 off 23 balls, counting ten boundaries and three sixes; Hayley Matthews, 40 off 23 balls, with eight boundaries and a six while Charlene Taitt made 35 from only 25 deliveries to propel the Barbadians to 206-6. Amanda Edwards took 2-24.Leedward Islands in reply limped to 107-5. Shebani Bhaskar hit an unbeaten 40 while openers Malissa Howard (15) and Shawnisha Hector (18), were the next best batters.Matthews (2-21) was the most destructive of the bowlers.

He crossed the plane of the goal line on the play where they said he was inches short. I am 100% sure the ball crossed the plane. Could have changed the whole ball game but then again that kid still would have ripped a 74 yard TD. He was gone Report Reply 0 replies · active 304 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

But once Wellingtonâ€™s Trevor Nance connected with Colin Reichenberger for a 15 yard completion with 8:48 in the second quarter, the Crusaders would go on to score 34 points. Stranger things have happened. After all Kansas City is one game up in the American League Championship Series.Â Wellington would cap an 80 yard drive when fullback Jaden Hines would scramble 27 yards for a touchdown to put the Crusaders on the board.Collegiate responded with a Austin Waddell to Jack Copher 26-yard touchdown pass. Back came the Crusaders, when another Hines run followed by a Reichenberger batting the ball in the air and making his own catch put Wellington into enemy territory. Three plays later Nance hit Connor Phelps on a 30-yard touchdown throw – narrowing the margin to 24-13 at the half.On Wellingtonâ€™s second half possession, it appeared as if the Crusaders were going to march down the field to score. But Collegiateâ€™s Jack Larsen made a sensational one-handed interception and return it to the Wellington 40.Wellington would eventually stop Collegiate with a Phelps interception in the end zone. Then Lane Beard would scramble for a long run into enemy territory. A few plays later he would do it again on a 21 yard run and Wellington was within three points 24-21.However, Collegiate struck back and scored on a Jaques Williams 13-yard touchdown.Still Wellington wasnâ€™t through. A Reichenberger 35-yard pass reception would take the Dukes into enemy territory and four plays later Beard was just inches short from going in.But then Wellington commits a horrendous 5-yard false start penalty and two incompletions later, Wellington had nothing to show for the impressive first part of the drive.Then Williams got loose three plays later and scrambled 74 yards for the score. This game was all but over, 38-21 with 5:31 to play.But not so fast. Wellington engineered a 66 yard drive in slightly more than two minutes that was capped by a Beard 3-yard touchdown.In a strange sequence, Collegiate recovers an onside kick but is penalized. The second kick, Wellington recovers. Then Reichenberger makes a pass reception to the 4. Nance then takes it into from the 2 and with 1:36 to play, the Crusaders were back within four, 38-34.On the next onside kick, Collegiate recovers and would run out the clock for the win.â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢â€¢Adam Condit left the field after the game on a gator with what appears to be a high ankle sprain.

Liberia’s popular female blogger and manager of Jon Bricks, Berenice Mulubah, has launched a US$ 3,000 grant for arts and culture artists in order to help them improve the quality of their music video and to ensure it is up to international standards.Berenice is passionate about introducing Liberian arts and culture to the rest of the world through aid for artists. “I’m entirely funding this grant project and I remain open to accepting donations that would go towards different areas of art and culture development,” she explained.“Liberian artists need more than a US$3,000 grant to change their game, but this little grant is meant to provide help towards that process,” Berenice said. Ms. Mulubah, the owner of the blog “C Liberia Clearly”, added that art and culture grants are open to Liberian musicians both in Liberia and the Diaspora and that interested candidates must submit a song they have made, as well as the concept for a music video to accompany it. “The grant will go towards producing a quality video for the winner, and deadline for submission is October 31, 2015,” the blogger noted.In a e-mail, LIB Life asked Ms. Mulubah why she places the focus of the grant on musicians and the reward for artist to make quality video. “The industry has seen a new stream of goodies songs, but the lack of classic video to go along with it has become a serious problem now in the industry,” she said.“Liberian artist doesn’t need promotional training; they need a great promotional team,” Ms. Mulubah stressed. “She has called on Liberian stars to build a winning team of individuals who are skillful in management and marketing, in order to move from being only a singer and to a professional artist.Ms. Mulubah urges Liberian artists to send their work and that the project will be transparent. She explained that the grant is assured and is her way of helping to build the industry.Berenice Mulubah is Liberian born and was raised in Harper, Maryland County. Currently, she resides in the United States and has been promoting Liberian arts and culture a few years ago. Her blog discusses a range of subject that is associated with Liberian entertainment, politics, human rights and freedom of expression, with special emphasis on Liberian arts and culture.She is also an author and was once nominated for the Liberian Entertainment Awards Best Radio Personality.To contact her about applying for the Arts and Culture Grant, donating to the grant, or her other works, she can be reached by phone at 910-554-7600 or e-mail at [email protected] this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
