KINGSTON: The Milex Eaglets ended the Cinderella run of the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF) when they beat the army men 2-1 to win the 2017 KPMG Squash League which wrapped up at the Liguanea Club on Wednesday night. The Eaglets were unexpected finalists after battling through the early rounds of the competition. In contrast, JDF blew through the field, blasting into the finals without losing a match. Undaunted by the odds against his team, Eaglets’ captain, All Jamaica Under-19 champion Tahjia Lumley, kept a cool head to beat Gatasheu Bonner 3-1 in the first match of the finals. After winning the first two games of the match, Lumley was stunned when Bonner rebounded to win the third game. However, the youngster regained his form to claim a 21-19, 21-18, 5-21, 21-19 victory over Bonner. The win gave the Eaglets the statistical and psychological advantage and Shane Slater followed in his captain’s footsteps to defeat Darrian Barrant 21-20, 21-18, 21-18 and take the Eaglets to their first championship. Although the final match could not affect the ultimate result, the JDF took the opportunity to stave off a sweep, when Mark Gray beat Adam Sykes 17-21, 21-15, 21-17. Reflecting on the Eaglet’s victory, Lumley said: “I am very happy the team pulled through. We knew it would be hard against JDF because they haven’t lost a match throughout the league; so as team captain I knew I had to play my best to win the first match and see if it would lift the confidence of my team members and it did.” It wasn’t a total loss for the JDF as Darrian Barrant received the award for most improved player. Screaming Eagles placed third when they beat Goliath 2-1 in a playoff. Rajeev Venugopal put the Eagles ahead when he defeated Fritzroy Smith 21-10, 21-11, 21-23, 21-20. Then, Goliath managed to pull even when Dave Morrison beat Shane Murray 21-13, 21-15, 17-21, 21-13. However, Goliath then had to give the Eagles a walkover which handed them the victory. Managing partner for KPMG in Jamaica, Tarun Handa, said his company was pleased to have sponsored yet another successful tournament. “This tournament gets bigger and better every year and this time around the players really challenged themselves and gave us excellent squash,” he said. “I was very impressed with the JDF who played well consistently throughout the tournament but the Eaglets really came on strong in the final and played their best squash when it mattered the most,” he added.

They are extremely athletic and they gave us problems with their length, and they made shots tonight.”Jason Terry, who spent a few brief moments with the Kings in 2014 before being traded to Houston, was booed every time he touched the ball.

1 Martial Manchester United have completed the signing of Monaco starlet Anthony Martial.The Premier League side have splashed out a mammoth £36million, plus numerous add-ons, for the 19-year-old.The staggering deal sees Martial surpass Paris Saint-Germain’s Lucas Moura as the costliest teenager in football history.Martial was given permission to leave France’s training camp on Monday to travel to Manchester and finalise his switch after United had their offer accepted by Monaco over the weekend.He underwent a successful medical on Tuesday before penning a four-year contract, with an option of a fifth, with Louis van Gaal’s side ahead of the 6pm deadline.Martial, who has made just 29 starts in his senior career, becomes United’s third most expensive signing of all-time – with only Angel Di Maria and Juan Mata costing the club more.Likened to Arsenal and France legend Thierry Henry, the youngster can operate as a striker or out wide.
Tara the Jack Russell with owner Maire.A tiny Jack Russell dog is being hailed a hero after it saved a singing festival in a Donegal gaeltacht village.Residents in Falcarragh were left red-faced after its prize trophy went missing just days before its annual Sean-nos singing festival.The prestigious event attracts singers from across Ireland and was due to be opened by Minister of State at the Department of the Gaeltacht, Joe McHugh.But disaster struck when the Corn Chuimhneacháin Éamonn Ghráinne (or the Éamonn Ghráinne memorial cup) went missing from An tSean Bheairic arts and cultural centre.Organisers were left distraught and had started a search for a new trophy.Tara and the trophy.But in a bizarre twist of faith, manager of the centre Maire Ni Chasaide had called to the centre with her dog Tara.Tara needed a call of nature and Maire duly let her roam free.That is when she noticed Tara rummaging in a piece of overgrowth next to a skip, and saw that something was grabbing the dog’s attention.“I went over to see what Tara was sniffing and scratching at”, Máire said, “and to my amazement, I saw a number of items in the bushes with something shiny in the middle of them. It was the cup. I was absolutely delighted”.It’s not clear how the trophy ended up under the overgrowth in the first place.But Máire thinks the cup may have being inadvertently dumped during a spring-clean of the venue last week. The trophy had being packed in a cardboard box along with other items, and the manager believes the box may have being mistaken for items of rubbish and thrown onto the skip.“As the skip was full, the box and its contents may have fallen into the overgrowth”, Ní Chasaide said.She said the group are absolutely delighted that Tara helped find this very important trophy.The Éamoinn Ghráinne sean-nós competition is one of the most important events the group organises organise. The competition and cup are named after the late Éamoinn Ghráinne Mac Ruairí of Tory Island and Falcarragh, who was highly respected as a singer, musician and folklorist and is acknowledged as one of the masters of the Donegal sean-nós singing tradition.“Some of the best exponents of sean-nós singing in the county participate in this prestigious competition and it would have being catastrophic to have lost a trophy that means a lot to so many people. ”And now Tara’s cunning exploits in sniffing the trophy out have not gone unrewarded.While she may not receive a year’s supply of dog food like the famous english dog Pickles who recovered the World Cup in 1966 when it had been stolen, Tara is to get a big thank you.Local butcher Josie Doohan, the chairman of an tSean Bheairic said “Those of us who remember the story of Pickles and the World cup trophy will know that particular dog became an international celebrity and was rewarded with a year’s free supply of dog food. Although, we are unable to match that, as a retired butcher I can guarantee that Tara will be presented with the best quality prime T-bone steak to be got in Donegal”.TARA THE JACK RUSSELL SAVES THE DAY FOR SINGING FESTIVAL! was last modified: June 19th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:DOGdonegalFalcarraghTara the Jack Russelltrophy
