Big day for RSPL’s cellar dwellers

first_imgThe possession of the worst record over the last five games in the Red Stripe Premier League could seriously cost one of the more storied clubs in local football when the final whistles are blown today to signal the end of the 2015/2016 Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) regular season. Four losses in the last five games including three successive ones over the last three games and the only other result being a draw means that Cavalier have attempted the tragic act of committing suicide. Only a miracle or a lack of interest in the proceedings by their opponents, Tivoli Gardens who have very little to play for, could save them. With two teams set to be relegated the lower leagues today, Cavalier, who just weeks ago were in with a chance, albeit slim, of finishing in the top four now find themselves the second least likely team to survive of the four that could go down. Of the four the favourites tag still belongs to Waterhouse who have basically made the relegation zone their residence more most of the season. Waterhouse have shown fight of late and with a victory over Boys’ Town today could end up on a maximum 34 points, one above the total currently held by both Cavalier and Rivoli. Their survival therefore depends on the loss of both teams and in the event of a Rivoli draw Waterhouse would have to win by at least five clear goals – improbable. Cavalier can end the season with a maximum 36 points and stay up but would have to beat Tivoli Gardens and see Rivoli lose to Humble Lion or Reno lose to UWI FC. The University team still has chance of being on the right side of another decision to be made today that of the fourth semi-finalists and they will not give up that fight easily even though Reno will be at home. That situation makes Cavalier’s task much tougher.  Today’s games 3:30 p.m: Portmore United vs Arnett Gardens – Juici Park, Clarendon 3:30 p.m: Montego Bay United vs Harbour View – Montego Bay Sports Complex 3:30 p.m:  Reno vs UWI FC – Frome Complex 3:30 p.m: Humble Lion vs  Rivoli United F – Effortville Community Centre 3:30pm Tivoli Gardens United vs Cavalier – Edward Seaga Stadium 3:30 p.m: Waterhouse vs Boys’ Town – Drewsland Stadium Points standing                         P         W        D         L     GF       GA      GD      Pts    Portmore                    32       18         7       7         41      26        15       61      Arnett                         32       17         6        9        46       28       18       57  MoBay United            32       15        11      6         51       26       25       56 Humble Lion FC        32       12          11       9       28      27        1         47 UWI FC                     32      12           10     10       37      40       -3         46      H.View                        32      10           13       9       39      32        7        43     Tivoli                                 32        11              7        14        38        40         -2          40 Boys’ Town                 32      10          8        14      35       49      -14       38    Reno                            32        7          13      12       34      52      -18        34  Rivoli                           32       8           9       15        38      45        -7       33 Cavalier SC                 32       8           9       15        24       35       -11      33 Waterhouse                 32       7          10      15       29        40      -11       31last_img read more

The Warriors are not better without Kevin Durant. That said…

first_imgPORTLAND, Ore. — The Warriors are not better without Kevin Durant.Anyone who is pushing that narrative is, in essence, saying that the Warriors are better off with an amalgamation of minutes from Jonas Jerebko, Alfonzo McKinnie, and Shaun Livingston instead of 35-plus from perhaps the greatest scorer in NBA history.No offense to those reserves, who have played well in this series against the Blazers, but that’s a downright a laughable sentiment.Yet the Warriors are 5-0 since Durant went down …last_img

South Africa welcomes Nigeria’s economic growth

first_img8 April 2014 South Africa has welcomed the announcement that Nigeria, Africa’s most populous nation, is now the continent’s biggest economy, following a rebasing of the West African country’s gross domestic product (GDP). The World Bank, International Monetary Fund and African Development Bank have endorsed Nigeria’s rebased 2013 GDP figure of approximately US$509.9-billion. The figure, released by Nigeria’s National Bureau of Statistics on Sunday, makes South Africa the second-largest economy in Africa, with a 2013 rebased figure of US$370-billion. It also makes Nigeria, Africa’s biggest oil producer, the 26th largest economy in the world. South Africa’s National Treasury welcomed the announcement, saying it resonated with the country’s consistent call for more African economies to grow to their full potential, and gave “concrete expression to the fact that Africa is indeed rising”. “South Africa has been and will continue to benefit from faster economic growth in the rest of the continent,” the Treasury said in a statement on Monday, adding that the South African government and private sector “continue to play no small a part in the growth and development of the continent. “In Nigeria’s case, the wholesale and retail and the telecommunications sectors, the two largest components of the services sector, have big participation by South African firms who have played a big role in the growth and development of the two sectors. “This is a positive story of African countries contributing to re-shaping each other’s economies through increased investment.” Source: SAnews.gov.zalast_img read more
