Reggae Boyz trounce Aruba 2-0 to remain on top

first_imgKINGSTON, Jamaica, (CMC) – Unbeaten Reggae Boyz remained firmly on course for promotion to League A and qualification for the CONCACAF Gold Cup when they brushed aside Aruba 2-0 in the Nations League here Saturday night.Devon Williams put the hosts ahead in the 13th minute and Shamar Nicholson scored late on after missing a second half penalty.The victory was Jamaica’s third on the trot and left them top of Group C of League B with nine points, three clear of Antigua and Barbuda.Playing at the National Stadium in the country’s capital, the Reggae Boyz went quickly in search of the opening goal and it came when Kemar Lawrence crossed from the left for Williams to finish with his left foot from just inside the 18-yard box.Goalkeeper Eric Abdul then denied Dever Orgill and Nicholson to keep the scoreline intact and Aruba in the contest at half-time.Jamaica had a wonderful opportunity to double their advantage when substitute Javon East was brought down by Hoah Harms in the area in the 76th minute but Nicholson blasted the resulting penalty well over the crossbar.Nicholson made amends two minutes from time, however, when he kept his composure to poke home a close range finish.In the other games in League B, St Lucia remained winless with a 3-0 defeat away to the Dominican Republic in Group B while hosts Montserrat perished 2-0 at the hands of El Salvador to concede defeat for the first time in three matches.In League C, Nicholas Blackman’s second half free kick was enough to seal Barbados’s 1-0 win over US Virgin Islands, and return them to the top of Group A on six points.Cayman Islands, who went down 3-0 to Saint Martin, lie second also with six points but are behind on goal difference.Anguilla, meanwhile, suffered elimination in Group C after going down 5-0 to Guatemala at home at The Valley, leaving them without a win in two outings.last_img read more

Which is the best coaching duo in the Big 12?

first_imgScreen shot 2014-05-06 at 10.03.37 AMI started thinking the other day about Big 12 football coaches — I don’t know why I do these things, only that they happen.Then I started ranking them in my head then I threw in basketball coaches and now, here we are. I made a poll below to see what your thoughts are but before we get there, let me give you mine.First, I think this is pretty tough. All the schools with what I consider terrific basketball coaches have “meh” football coaches and vice versa. Sadly, I think OU takes my top spot. I don’t think Lon Kruger is the best basketball coach in the Big 12 but whatever he lacks, Stoops makes up for. The second slot is up for grabs. You could talk me into probably four different duos. I guess I’ll go with Hoiberg and Rhoads but only because I value basketball more than most and because I think Rhoads is better than his record suggests. If you pick, say, Snyder and Weber, I wouldn’t blame you.I’ll round out my top three with — I cannot believe I’m typing this — Briles and Drew. Briles is one of the three best in the Big 12 in football and it’s sort of hard to argue with the fact that Baylor has been to three Sweet 16s in the last five years, isn’t it? Are we really at this point? If I didn’t think Weis was so awful I’d have him and Self in the three spot, same for OSU and Ford. Gundy and Self are both top 12 coaches in their respective sports but they’re being weighed down by their counterparts.Here are my full rankings:1. Stoops/Kruger2. Hoiberg/Rhoads3. Briles/Drew4. Self/Weis5. Gundy/Ford6. Snyder/Weber7. Kingsbury/Smith8. Barnes/Strong9. Holgorsen/Huggins10. Patterson/JohnsonYour turn…[poll id=”5″]Photo: USATSIIf you’re looking for the comments section, it has moved to our forum, The Chamber.

Big 12 Getting Crushed For Reportedly Considering Splitting Football Into 2 Divisions

first_imgBig 12 expansion fpiBig 12.The Big 12 dropped some interesting news Friday, announcing that starting in 2017, the league will bring back a conference championship game, despite the fact that it is staying at 10 schools. It was also announced by commissioner Bob Bowlsby that the league is considering moving to two five-team divisions and keeping its round robin scheduling. If you’re thinking that doesn’t make a ton of sense – you aren’t alone. College football fans and analysts are mocking the league for what seems like a pointless exercise. Why have divisions if you already play every other team? Couldn’t that potentially leave the league without its two best teams in the title game?What’s the point of divisions if doing round-robin? The Big 12 is clueless https://t.co/En2GE7PZ9D— Jason Brown (@JasonBrown96) June 3, 2016“two five team divisions”One one hand, that’s dumb.On the other hand, the Big 12 East featuring WVU, ISU, Kansas, KSU, and someone.— Smoking Musket (@SmokingMusket) June 3, 2016So the Big 12 is going to five-team divisions.

BCs Chief Electoral Officer recommends allowing teens to preregister to vote

first_imgVICTORIA, B.C. – B.C.’s Chief Electoral Officer, Keith Archer, has submitted a report to the Legislative Assembly recommending changes to the Election Act.Archer says his recommendations are aimed at increasing the accessibility and efficiency of the electoral process in the province. The most prominent of the main recommendations in the report are to allow 16- and 17-year-olds who will become eligible to vote to pre-register, so that they will be added to the voters list automatically when they turn 18.Archer is also recommending that Elections BC be provided with greater access to information held by public bodies to help maintain the provincial voters list, and using technology to modernize voting and counting administration while maintaining paper ballots. In addition, he suggests making the election period longer during a snap general election to allow more time for candidate nominations, material distribution, staffing, and communicating with voters. Archer’s report also proposes a new administrative model for counting votes, which he says could be implemented under any form of electoral system. The model would maintain most facets of the current administrative model while eliminating the need for the final count of absentee ballots, which under current legislation takes place 13 days after General Voting Day.Finally, Archer recommends establishing a legislative committee to work towards implementing the proposed administrative model over the next three to six years.Archer’s full report can be read here: http://elections.bc.ca/docs/rpt/2018-CEO-Recommendations.pdflast_img read more
