This year’s edition was especially difficult.Sure, the alumni team usually wins this game. Some haven’t played in a while, but they make up for that with their added experience and the fact that they’re closer to their athletic peaks. On this occasion, the varsity players were at yet another disadvantage: Ellsworth legend Brian Higgins, their former coach, was coaching the opposition.Though it had strong moments throughout the match, the Ellsworth varsity soccer team couldn’t defeat its veteran counterparts Friday night. Two early goals from Zach Emeigh gave Higgins’ team an advantage, and the alumni never looked back in a 5-1 victory.“It’s one thing to be playing guys who are older than you, but you also have coach Higgins there on the other side,” said former player and current Ellsworth Athletic Director Josh Frost, who played 20 minutes of the match for the alumni team. “They don’t want to let him down.”Ellsworth varsity player Jack Lee gains possession of the ball during the first half of the Ellsworth boys’ soccer team’s alumni game Aug. 19 in Ellsworth.PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLThis is placeholder textThis is placeholder textThe alumni team has often faced roster shortages in the past, but that can be overcome with the right amount of experience and athleticism. There were no such issues Friday, and there was little the varsity team could do to stop the onslaught.“We had like 20 guys here tonight, so people can sub in and out all the time,” Frost said. “There have been years where we could barely find enough 11 guys to put on the field, but everyone wanted to be here for coach Higgins tonight.”Emeigh scored the opening goal with 31 minutes, 4 seconds remaining in the first half and doubled the lead less than six minutes later. The alumni team added another six minutes later and scored again with 1:30 left in the half to take a 4-0 lead.In the second half, Travis Coffin added the alumni team’s final goal at the 25:31 mark. It looked as if the varsity side would go home goalless until Brad Smith capitalized on a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper to score with just over 14 minutes left.Few in the crowd expected a different result, but some did find solace in the varsity team’s performance.“They communicated better throughout the match, and their passing looked good,” said Laura Dyer, whose son, Logan, scored the alumni team’s third goal of the match. “The defense could have been a bit better, but there’s a lot they can take away from this.”New varsity coach Paul Lock’s team was far from perfect — the final score showed as much — but it did end the match with a slew of chances on goal that it hadn’t gotten earlier. The reward was a goal that pleased Ellsworth’s new coach.“We did better and better as the game went on,” Lock said. “We were nervous at first, but our guys learned from (the alumni team’s) demeanor and were able to figure out the right adjustments.”Ellsworth’s first game will be at home against the Caribou Vikings at 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 3. The Eagles are hoping to improve on last season’s campaign, which ended in a 2-1 loss to Erskine in the Class B regional title game.last_img read more

Linden’s synthetic track moving apace, says MP Jermaine Figueira

first_imgBy Joe ChapmanREGION 10’s (Upper Demerara/Upper Berbice) Member of Parliament Jermaine Figueira has stated in an exclusive interview with Chronicle Sport: “I am most definitely satisfied with how things are going with regard to Linden’s international 400m synthetic track, which is being constructed at the Bayrcok Community Centre ground in Wismar.”Exactly two years ago, it was Figueira who on March 13, 2017 went public, before the official announcement had been made, that the Bayrock Community Centre had been chosen as the site for the 400m synthetic track, following a second consultation. There were back-and-forth discussions in the town as to whether it should be laid at the Mackenzie Sports Club ground or the Wismar site on the west bank of Linden.Looking at the work which is currently underway Figueira opined, “I think the contractor who actually won the contract for it I think it is moving at a good pace and I am happy with the developments I have seen this far.”The reported contract for the $179M track was awarded to Builders Hardware and General Supplies and this phase of the work includes groundwork – laying of the necessary drainage pipes, curb wall for the track and asphalting and concreting work.Noting that Linden has come a long way with regard its showing particularly in athletics the Member of Parliament said: “This is a promise that the government would have made to the people of Linden, Region Ten, that was denied by the previous administration, even though the evidence pointed to the fact that Region Ten is the hub for athletics prowess in Guyana.”Figueira made the point: “We have the medals and the timings and the athletes to prove that those are indeed the facts and the evidence is there to substantiate that claim. So we are very much pleased that this work has started and the people of Region Ten would benefit from this pristine and world-class facility when it is completed. And we are very confident that such a facility will aid Guyana in presenting Olympic world-class athletes.”Speaking passionately about what Linden has shown by its performances over the years; and being the most decorated district at the annual National Schools Athletics, Swimming and Cycling Championships ever in history Figueira stressed, “I am also satisfied that there is local content being a feature of the development of this track where Linden workers are being employed. In the future they can say that they had contributed towards the existence of such a track in this community.”The active and youthful MP cautioned: “But I strongly believe, however, that more of our people should be employed. I know that the synthetic track is in its embryonic stage and it requires a unique type of skill-set, but more of our people need to be employed.“I have spoken to the contractor about it but he said this is a very technical part of the process and as soon as this is completed more Lindeners will be employed and I am extremely happy about that.”last_img read more

It didn’t bother me but there were people from out of town griping about it. Was it posted somewhere that pool was closing early?
