Murray’s double puts Dinthill in daCosta Cup final

first_img Murray, who came into the match on 25 goals on the season, showed his class and dragged his team back into the contest in the 43rd minute with a spectacular free kick. In the second half, it was end-to-end action. Manchester’s Duhaney Williams along with Ajay Chin and Jevaughn Bailey troubled the Dinthill defenders with their hard running all afternoon, but to no avail. Neither team was able to break the 1-1 tie even after the first period of extra time, but with two minutes remaining in the second period Murray, shrugged off his marker to slide the ball just under the advancing Manchester goalkeeper for the 2-1 victory. It was yet another sad end to an otherwise promising season for Donovan Duckie and his Manchester side, following their 4-1 drubbing in the Ben Francis KO final last week by St Elizabeth Technical. Western Bureau: Rodave Murray proved how devastatingly good he can be with a clinical double to fire Dinthill Technical into a first ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup final in more than three decades. Murray inspired the Anthony Patrick-coached Dinthill to a come-from-behind 2-1 win in yesterday’s semi-final at the Juici Field in Clarendon. They will meet either Ben Francis KO winners St Elizabeth Technical or Lennon High who meet today in the second semi-final set for 2:30 p.m. at the same venue. There were wild celebrations in muddy conditions for the Dinthill supporters after the final whistle was blown to signal the end of an enthralling match that swung back and forth between two evenly matched teams. In addition to his two goals Murray missed an eighth minute penalty. His effort from the penalty spot struck the upright and went out of play, with Manchester High’s goalkeeper Nicholas King well beaten. Dinthill appeared destined to pay for the miss when Manchester grabbed a 28th minute lead. Central midfielder Jarvis Mattis sent them in front with a well-taken free kick. The goal appeared to have stung Dinthill into lifting their level of play with Murray, Anthony Hewitt, Ramone Brown and Antone Rhule leading the charge with several dangerous attacks.

And the agreement senators had worked out, which had border protection provisions as well as a path to eventual citizenship, was the most balanced plan that has emerged out of Washington yet. As the senators enjoy their Easter break, it would be a good time for them to reflect on their responsibility to work through the disagreements once they reconvene. Reforming immigration is too important a task to allow politics to get in the way. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! IT seemed so certain. In a rare appearance, Senate leaders from both parties announced to the public on Thursday that lawmakers had crafted an agreement on immigration reform. The first step in an honest reform of the nation’s broken immigration policy appeared to be under way. Then the bottom dropped out of the agreement. At the last minute, partisan bickering tanked the compromise that seemed so close. And on Friday, the day before a two-week spring recess, the agreement was thwarted by some Republicans who kept trying to force amendments that would have fundamentally changed it. In so doing, the Senate failed both the legal residents of the United States and the 11 million or so illegal ones living in society’s shadow. last_img read more
