Queen’s remain on course to defend titles in ISSA urban netball competitions

first_imgFollowing two months of preliminary round action in the urban area ISSA netball competition, defending junior and senior champions, The Queen’s School, are on course to retain both titles when second round action gets underway tomorrow at the Leila Robinson Courts. A year ago, the Marvette Anderson-coached school dominated their urban counterparts and were unbeaten. The junior team went on to win the all-island title by defeating Denbigh High, while the senior team missed out in their all-island clash against Holmwood Technical. The juniors will have their hands full this time around, as they only qualified to the second round as runners-up. Competing in Group F, they were beaten by a well improved Gaynstead High team, which went on to top the group. The winners and runners-up in each group booked their second round berths and the remaining junior teams qualifying are: Group A: Holy Childhood (first), Excelsior (second); Group B – Campion College (first), Ardenne (second); Group C – St Hugh’s (first), Alpha (second); Group D – Camperdown (first), Norman Manley (second); Group E – Meadowbrook (first), Tarrant (second). Both Queen’s and last year’s beaten finalists, St Hugh’s, were very impressive in preliminary senior action and topped their groups going into the next stage. The defending champions were unbeaten to win Group F and will be joined by Gaynstead, whose only defeat came at the hands of the champions. St Hugh’s, with national senior player Kadian Dehaney in their line-up, also looked good in topping Group C and will be accompanied by St Andrew Technical High School (STATHS). Other qualifiers are: Group A – Holy Childhood (first), Excelsior (second); Group B – St Catherine High (first), Campion (second); Group D – Camperdown (first), Norman Manley (second); Group E – Tarrant (first), Meadowbrook (second).last_img read more

Bayern win sixth straight German league title

first_img0Shares0000Bayern Munich have now won the German league 28 times in their illustrious history© AFP Christof STACHEBERLIN, Germany, Apr 7 – Bayern Munich were crowned Bundesliga champions for the sixth consecutive season on Saturday as James Rodriguez helped turn the game in their 4-1 comeback victory at Augsburg.The result mean Bayern are German league champions for the 28th time in their history, and it was the sixth year in a row they have won the Bundesliga since their treble-winning season in 2013. Augsburg took a shock lead through an own goal by Niklas Suele, but the Bavarians roared back as Corentin Tolisso, James — who then assisted Arjen Robben — and Sandro Wagner all scored.The result leaves Bayern 20 points clear with five league games left and underlined their absolute dominance of the Bundesliga.With one eye on Wednesday’s Champions League quarter-final second leg against Sevilla, in which Munich hold a slender 2-1 lead, coach Jupp Heynckes gambled by resting his stars.Top scorer Robert Lewandowski, plus Thomas Mueller, Thiago Alcantara, Mats Hummels and Javi Martinez all started on the bench.Sevilla would have encouraged by the comedy of errors in Bayern’s defence that led to Augsburg’s goal.Jerome Boateng lingered over a back pass and Colombian forward Sergio Cordova robbed him of possession, sending Boateng tumbling to the turf, clutching his hamstring.Cordova’s shot was blocked by Bayern goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, but the ball ricocheted into Suele’s face and into Bayern’s goal to stun the visitors on 18 minutes.However, Munich were 2-1 up by the time half-time came when Joshua Kimmich’s cross picked out Tolisso unmarked in the area to header Bayern level on 32 minutes.Bayern then laid on a top-class goal to take the lead at Augsburg’s WWK Arena.Kimmich was again involved, firing a pass across goal after combining with Robben for Juan Bernat, who backheeled the ball which James fired home seven minutes before the break.– Cameo for Ribery –The Colombian then ensured the title was heading to Munich for their third.He hooked the ball back into play at the far post for Robben to drill his shot inside the near post on 62 minutes.Ribery celebrated his 35th birthday with a cameo appearance for the final eight minutes before Wagner headed home Bayern’s late fourth.The Bavarian giants will formally lift the Bundesliga shield after the final day on May 12.Elsewhere, second-from-bottom Cologne suffered a blow to their survival hopes as they were held to a 1-1 draw by  Mainz.An early goal by Cologne’s Germany defender Jonas Hector was cancelled out as Pablo De Blasis headed an equaliser for Mainz five minutes into the second half.With five games left, Cologne are six points behind Mainz, who are 16th, which carries a relegation play-off berth against the third-best team in the second tier at the end of the season.Wolfsburg, who are just above the bottom three, won 2-0 at Freiburg in a match featuring two sides just above the bottom three and fighting to stay up.With just two minutes gone at the Schwarzwald Stadion, Wolves striker Daniel Didavi held off his marker and fired past despairing Freiburg goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow. He added a second with seven minutes remaining.Thorgan Hazard came off the bench to score twice as Borussia Moenchengladbach climbed to eighth with a 2-1 win at home to Hertha Berlin.Salomon Kalou gave Hertha an early lead, but Hazard come off the bench to score on 75 minutes, then net a late penalty.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
