Craig Young took three wickets on his Ireland debut as Scotland toiled in their Intercontinental Cup clash. Kevin O’Brien also took two wickets and a catch as he started his 200th game for Ireland by helping his side into a commanding position on the first day. Ireland forced Scotland out for 138 and had eaten 35 runs into the total without loss by stumps in Dublin. Only a 56-run eighth-wicket partnership from Safyaan Sharif and Moneeb Iqbal prevented Scotland from real humiliation at Clontarf. Fresh from their World Cricket League double over the Scots, Ireland started strongly following a rain delay when Max Sorensen bowled out Hamish Gardiner for a duck in the third over. And Sussex bowler Young had Scotland in serious trouble when he took the wickets of Freddie Coleman, Richie Berrington and Preston Mommsen to leave the visitors on 33 for four. O’Brien then took over, taking the wickets of Calum MacLeod and Craig Wallace, either side of pouching a catch which removed Majid Haq, to leave the Scots 68 for seven. At this stage Berrington was Scotland’s top scorer with a meagre 14 runs but Sharif and Iqbal then frustrated the hosts with nine boundaries between them in a vital stand. Graeme McCarter, who took three wickets in all, bowled Iqbal out for 25 and Scotland’s innings came to an end when Sharif fell for 41. William Porterfield (23 not out) and Paul Stirling (11 not out) saw Ireland safely through their first six overs to further consolidate the home side’s advantage. Press Association
Facebook Twitter Google+ Alana O’Neill scored twice to lift Syracuse (1-0-1) to a 2-0 victory over Delaware (0-2-0) on Sunday afternoon, SU’s first home game of the season. The win follows Friday’s draw against Colgate, where Syracuse outshot the Raiders 22-5 but was unable to come away with the win.“We didn’t play nearly as composed as we did today,” head coach Phil Wheddon said. “A win is great for your confidence and I thought it was a very convincing one as far as statistics go.”With the rain pouring down, the Orange dominated possession in the first half but was unable to capitalize with a goal. From the 24th to the 32nd minutes, Syracuse fired six shots but none slid past goalkeeper Kailyn Rekos. The junior tallied four saves in the first half to keep the Blue Hens competitive early on.Syracuse’s onslaught continued after the 32nd minute as Jessica Vigna attempted four corner kicks. The Delaware defense, however, held its ground until the end of the half. The Orange had totaled 10 shots and 11 corner kicks by the break but had nothing to show for it.Growing restless entering the second half, the Orange caught a break and was finally able to break the game open. In the 53rd minute Alex Lamontagne laid a beautiful cross which Alana O’Neill lasered into the net.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Our service into the box was fantastic and I thought we created a number of good chances,” Wheddon said. “Obviously you hope to get some good individual performances and I thought we had that today from three or four different people.”Syracuse continued to apply offensive pressure as it kept the ball in Delaware’s half. In the 70th minute, freshman Taylor Bennett’s shot hit the post, but O’Neill was there to knock it in for her second goal of the day. O’Neill replicated her performance from October 2014 against Boston College, where she led the Orange with two goals in a 3-0 victory. Her two goals today were her first since that match.Syracuse outshot Delaware 18-3 on the day. Junior goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan faced little action from the Blue Hens’s offense with just a single shot on goal. Outside of O’Neill’s two-goal afternoon, Lamontagne and freshman Sydney Brackett were active on the attack with four and three shots, respectively.“We’ve played four freshmen so far and the impact they’ve been having is fantastic,” Wheddon said. “I really like where we are at the moment.”Syracuse continues its four-game homestand against Army on Friday at 3 p.m. Comments Published on August 21, 2016 at 4:24 pm Contact Byron: [email protected]

By Shemuel FanfairDecember 2016 marked the end of employment for the majority of workers when the Wales Estate factory wound down operations. Over 1000 workers were employed with the estate at the time of its closure and some took up work at the Uitvlugt Estate, while others refused to travel over the 22-mile distance for employment.To date, many former employees are experiencing difficulty finding consistent employment to sustain their families. However, for two fathers who finally gained jobs as security guards at the beginning of 2018 said they can barely make ends meet as they have not been paid in over two months by their employer, Sentinel Security Inc.Guyana Times recently spoke with the men, who were too afraid to publically come forward out of fear of possible victimisation. They are both fathers – one of which is a grandfather of two.“They taking too long to pay we and they not keeping any meeting to tell we why them ain’t paying we… it hard,” the younger guard related, noting that he has a 10-year-old who is attending school.His more mature colleague, the grandfather, expressed that it is not easy for a man to be going home every evening without any income to support his family. The man said he is finding it difficult to afford his electricity and telephone bills. He said too that he now eats one meal during the day.“You got to find food to carry in the night. When everybody sleeping, you working; it worse than when we went in the sugar industry” he noted.The men related that several other guards in the West Demerara district enduring non-payment of salaries. Guyana Times understands that Sentinel provides services to many of the schools on the West Bank of Demerara, as well as clinics at the West Demerara Regional Hospital. However, due to non-payment to the company by financial operatives in Region Three (Essequibo-Islands West Demerara), the workers’ plight remains unchanged.On Wednesday, this publication reached an official from the company, who identified himself as L Adams. He did not deny that the guards were owed but related that the Region Three administration would be in a better position to give insight into the outstanding payments. He however noted that some workers could be paid in the coming days.When contacted, Region Three Regional Executive Officer (REO) Denis Jaikarran said the region is currently in the process of bringing resolution to the matter. He said that the Regional Democratic Council (RDC) discussed the matter at its statutory meeting on Wednesday. He furthermore stated that the region is currently in discussions with the Finance Ministry.“It is not a shortage of money but there were some difficulties and challenges we faced in terms of the releases… that matter is going to be resolved in quick time,” Jaikarran assured.He claimed that the RDC has been engaging the Ministry over the last three weeks. Guyana Times learnt that the RDC has already forwarded the requisite documents to the Finance Ministry and is scheduled to meeting with officials to sort out the matter sometime today.
