H View satisfied with draw

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU:Harbour View FC were joyful following a goalless draw against Red Stripe Premier League champions Montego Bay United (MBU) at the western team’s home ground at Wespow Park, Montego Bay.Down in the doldrums of the league table, Harbour View had goalkeeper Joel Johnson to thank for a superb game, as he made four spectacular diving saves late in the second half to deny MBU.The ‘Stars of the East’, however, were left to complete the game with 10 players after Rosario Harriott was issued a second caution for a crunching tackle on forward Dino Williams in the 67th minute.Harbour View, sitting last in the table with three points, stemmed their tide of losses with Sunday’s draw. They previously recorded a single victory and three straight losses.”We came not to lose, and having drawn the game I think a point is good enough,” said Ludlow Bernard, Harbour View’s coach.”I lift my hat to all the players and I give them credit for playing hard from start to end. Apart from that, it was a great game and we look forward to moving out of the danger zone,” added Bernard.MoBay’s Williams was booked for lashing out at his marker.Slavisa Bozicic, MBU’s Serbian technical director, decried his team’s many missed chances, stating his players were unlucky not to score.”We had many chances to score but just couldn’t hit the target today. It was an otherwise good match. The opposition played hard and the result, although we would have preferred a win, is not a bad one,” said Bozicic.StandingsH Lion FC 6 4 1 1 7 3 4 13UWI FC 6 4 1 1 7 6 1 13Jamalco FC 6 3 1 2 10 5 5 10Arnett 6 3 1 2 7 5 2 10MoBay Utd 6 3 1 2 7 5 2 10Portmore FC 6 2 2 2 5 6 -1 8Reno 6 2 2 2 3 4 -1 8Tivoli FC 6 2 1 3 6 5 1 7Mav-Hugh 6 1 4 1 7 7 0 7W’house 6 2 0 4 4 7 -3 6B Town 6 1 1 4 5 9 -4 4H View 6 1 1 4 2 8 -6 4last_img read more

Naomh Brid in Downings won the Viking for Schools ‘Little Litterbug’ drawing competition – beating off stiff competition from 500 entries from across schools in Ireland.The competition asked for pupils to draw a little litterbug – a creature or machine that is able to recycle classroom rubbish. Judges from schools supplier Viking and competition partner, European Recycling Platform (ERP), praised Paddy’s “Litterbug 5000” because of its environmentally friendly way of reusing classroom materials. Paddy’s design showcased creativity and incorporated eco-friendly elements such as reduced noise pollution and wind power.The Little Litterbug competition was open to pupils 11 years and under encouraging children across the country to think about the environmental impact from their classroom rubbish.The winning entry was built by well-known Donegal gardeners Highland Landscapes.Michael Walby, Director of Viking in Ireland, said: “It was incredibly hard to judge from the short listed entries but we felt that Paddy’s “Litterbug 5000” was a fantastic idea and we were impressed by the consideration and creative flare that he had put into his design. The Little Litterbug competition has been a great opportunity for children to learn more about how they can help the environment and make their school more eco-friendly.” Yvonne Holmes, Head of Corporate Communications at ERP Ireland added: “We had a truly difficult job choosing the winner, but we were amazed by the thought and attention to detail that Paddy and all of the children who entered the competition put into their designs. We are so pleased with the winning design; it has such a fantastic concept and really embraces the sustainable message of the competition.” GREEN-FINGERED DOWNINGS BOY WINS €10,000 IN GARDEN COMPETITION was last modified: November 20th, 2012 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
