– 8:40 p.m. Montego Bay United vs Arnett Gardens at Catherine Hall Complex Tomorrow’s Game Fans crying out for excitement in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) will have it all today when title aspirants Humble Lion hosts former champions Portmore United in a first-leg semi-final at the Effortville Community Centre in Clarendon. Game time is 3:30 p.m. This ‘Clarendon derby’ will feature a number of former teammates at the schoolboy and club levels going against each other and should have fireworks aplenty. Perhaps the only drawback could be the capacity of the venue. Despite the above and the fact that there is a place in the RSPL final on offer, what perhaps will be most on the minds of the fans is whether the ‘vexed’ Humble Lion will have the chance to right what they believe was a wrong. Portmore United, the team many love to hate, were beaten 3-1 in their third encounter of the season with Humble Lion, but had the win erased when they protested the use of an ineligible player. The competition’s committee ruled against Humble Lion and awarded Portmore United three points and a 3-0 win. That result almost derailed Humble Lion’s season as they fell from fourth spot a position which had been their preserve for most of the season and one which would have guaranteed them a spot in the semi-final and fell to sixth. Those three points also enabled Portmore United to top the table on points, as they finished one ahead of defending champions Arnett Gardens and collected the bounty of one million dollars. “Obviously, the issue will be on the minds of all concerned, but we intend not to make it a distraction,” Vassell Reynolds, coach of Humble Lion, said of the impact the ruling will have on his players. “I have asked my team not to focus on that issue, but to focus on the game itself and what winning these two games will mean to us,” added the man who led Wolmer’s Boys’ to a schoolboy football title this season. While stating that he asked his players to put the past in a certain ‘space’, Reynolds confessed that in their matches leading up to this one, that disappointment was a major motivator. “Getting to this stage, we used this incident to motivate us. For about a round and a half, we were in fourth spot, but wouldn’t get any further. Since we lost the points in the boardroom, our only blemish in terms of dropped points was a 0-1 loss to Arnett Gardens. We pledged to fight to get back in,” Reynolds explained. Portmore United’s Geoffrey Hewitt acknowledged that the results and points reversal could play a part in the temperature of the match. “It is something that we are totally cognisant of, but this is a semi-final. It is a big game and several things can motivate us to perform. We are confident in our ability to win and we are motivated to do so,” said Hewitt, a very successful coach at the schoolboy level, in particular at Garvey Maceo. Not one to say a lot, Hewitt would only add that they are driven by ambition. “Our ambition drives us. That is our driving force. We are determined to succeed and we believe that we have what it takes to be champions, and Humble Lion is our first hurdle to the championship,” Hewitt said. Talent is something Portmore United have in abundance. Besides the steady Ewan Grandison, there is the duo of Ricardo Morris and Tramaine Stewart, who can decide a game on their own. Javon East is another player who comes to mind and, if fully fit, could cause problems. Defensively, they are also sound with the vertically-challenged, but commanding Damano Salmon, Ryan Wellington and possibly Uptsan Edwards. Humble Lion are themselves not humble in the talent department and should have at their disposal the on-form Levaughn Williams, Ricardo Cousins, Jermaine Christian, Wolry and Kemeel Wolfe and the fit-again Francois Swaby, who could come off the bench. The other semi-final, between Arnett Gardens and Montego Bay United, who finished third, will be played tomorrow at Catherine Hall Complex in Montego Bay.

Commonwealth Games Federation (CGF) chief executive Mike Hooper on Sunday withdrew his offensive remarks against India for the mess surrounding the Commonwealth Games and said the delivery of the event was a collective responsibility of all the stakeholders.Hooper had earlier shrugged off the CGF’s responsibility for the delivery of the Games and had put the blame squarely on the organising committee and other Indian stakeholders.”We’re at the hands and the mercy of, effectively, the government of India, the Delhi government, the agencies responsible for delivery of the venues. They consistently failed to meet deadlines,” Hooper was quoted as saying by TVNZ.”Now, we were very active, very strong in pushing for this to be done. The actual venues were not handed over effectively and I say handed over from the point of view of getting venue- completion certificates and occupancy certificates,” he had said.But only a few hours later, the Kiwi retracted his remarks, admitting that the CGF too was responsible for the implementation and delivery of the Games.”What I stated in relation to the responsibility of the delivery of the Games rests with the Indian stakeholders – government of India, Delhi government, Indian Olympic Association (IOA) and the organising committee (OC),” Hooper said in his clarification.”The CGF does not have the resources just as the IOC, which conducts the Olympics. The CGF has limited resources and when India won the bid, promises were made to what would be delivered for the Games and the participating athletes.advertisement”Together with the stakeholders, we (CGF) look at the implementation and delivery of the Games,” he added.Hooper also rubbished claims that he ever held the growing population of India responsible for the traffic snarls, which was deemed as an insult to the country by many.While the beleaguered OC has been under the hammer for every problem associated with the Games, the role of Hooper, who has been in the Capital to monitor the preparations for the last three years, has gone unnoticed.Hooper did voice his concerns last year about the way the Capital was preparing itself for the Games, which even turned his relation sour with the OC.But soon after, his growing concerns disappeared and, once in a while, he used to come out to express his satisfaction about the functioning of the OC and its preparedness for the mega event.Just as the chorus against the OC began to increase, Hooper too joined the bandwagon and raised all sorts of question marks on the success of the Games.However, Hooper continues to make his characteristic flip-flops and a few days after he joined the international delegations in their stinging assessment of the facilities at the Games, he has mellowed down.”We look at the delivery of the Games and, by and large, all those things have been done. Yes, we have had some snags and we acknowledge that.We are working to address those snags like the Games Village. Things have started moving with the bright sunshine for the last few days but it does not mean that everything is perfect,” he said.
