Guyana maintain winning streak at CBC C/ship

first_imgThe confidence of the men’s national basketball team is at an all-time high, as they are yet to lose a match-up in the Caribbean Basketball Confederation (CBC) Championships in Paramaribo, Suriname.Guyana’s Kevon WigginsIt was a battle of the undefeated teams on Wednesday evening, as Guyana met Suriname at the Anthony Nesty Sporthal to contest an age-old rivalry once again. With Guyana looking to maintain their successful streak and Suriname seeking to go 4-0 in the competition, both teams were out for blood and couldn’t seem to get out of each other’s way in the first few minutes of the match-up.Petty squabbles aside, players on the Guyanese side were determined to make their mark in the neighbouring country. With a jam-packed crowd, the game got off to a slow start, with both teams lacking in their shot accuracy. With the quarter ending 10-12 in favour of Suriname, the Guyanese boys had to go back to the drawing board to reassess their game plan.Whatever was said to the team by Guyanese Coach Junior Hercules during their break seemed to be a game changer for them as they returned to the game with improved accuracy and defence.The second quarter proved to be better for the local team as they surged to a 12-point lead thanks to several exciting shots from 17-year-old Kevon Wiggins. With crucial contributions from Shaine Webster, Anthony Moe, Travis Belgrave, and Orlon Glasgow and Captain Stanton Rose setting up successful plays, Guyana were able to maintain their lead, although Suriname came close on several occasions. At the end of the first half, 39-27 was the score, which set the tempo for how the remainder of the game would play out.Guyana’s Stanton Rose (number 11) gears up for a free throwWiggins continued in excellent fashion, often silencing the Surinamese-dominated crowd with his superb three pointers, as Guyana continued to dominate the encounter despite the height and age advantage that the experienced Suriname team possessed.Guyana cruised to victory owing to several failed attempts by the home side and a number of clean blocks on the part of the Guyanese defence. The final score was 83-72, as Guyana celebrated yet another hard-fought victory.last_img read more

‘OIL’ NOT BE BEATEN BY STORM SAYS BATTLING SUPERMARKET BOSS

first_imgStephen O’Donnell (right) with his son Gavin at their dark supermarket in Crolly yesterday.A supermarket owner went back to the ‘dark ages’ to make sure his business remained open during Storm Rachel yesterday.Stephen O’Donnell, who owns the Mace Supermarket in Crolly, arrived at his business at 6.30am to find it in darkness.The business had been struck by lightning which left phonelines and power out. The busy Go garage owned by the O’Donnell family in Crolly.But rather than disappointing his customers, Stephen decided the shop would open.He dug out some paraffin oil lanterns which he purchased thinking they were antique a number of years ago.And those, combined with head-lights and candles, kept the shop open throughout the day.Those who only had credit cards and didn’t have cash were trusted and were allowed to pay another day. Stephen described it as one of the busiest days in recent times.Staff even used old fashioned calculators to take a note of how much items cost.“We decided that we owed it to our customers to stay open because we knew there would be a lot of people looking for coal and foodstuff.“I just thought of the lanterns and they worked really well. I thought they were antiques and although I don’t think they are, they certainly did the job,” he said.Stephen, who also runs the adjoining Go Service Station, paid tribute to his staff. “They were trying conditions but everyone got stuck in. We’re open around 27 years and a lot of the staff are with us for up to 24 years.“They’re very loyal and I would like to thank them for going above and beyond the call of duty today.‘Hopefully we’ll be back to normal tonight. I would also like to pay tribute to the ESB workers who worked so hard to get everyone back their power,” he said.‘OIL’ NOT BE BEATEN BY STORM SAYS BATTLING SUPERMARKET BOSS was last modified: January 16th, 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)last_img read more
