The venue for the match is yet to be announced.Multiple champions Caribbean Classic, the most celebrated team in Portmore, warmed up for the mid-season title as they thumped Feluchi Strikers 300-202, while Spit Fyah, just formed a couple seasons ago by former Classic captain, Javlin James, outlasted Naggo Head 300-283.In other games, third-place Eradication (29 points) defeated Ten to Ten 300-263, fourth-place Waterhouse United (25 points) beat Highlight Strikers 300-241, sixth-place Exceptional International (24 points) whipped Tamarind Tree 300-262, Giants trampled Memory Lane 300-262, Right Stuff defeated Spring Village 300-257, and Small Axe cut down Sour Sop Tree300-289.George Leecenter_img Memorial 5KSchools in Portmore are being encouraged to participate in the second staging of the George Lee Memorial 5.8 km Run/Walk, which will take place on Sunday, September 27, starting at the Portmore HEART College of Construction Services in Portsmouth, St Catherine.Aneita Lee, chairperson for the George Lee Foundation, is making the call for schools to make use of the opportunity. Lee is the widow of former Portmore mayor, the late George Lee.”Whether the competitor is a track athlete, football, or netball player, this is an event for you for stamina, fitness and wholesome fun,” she said.She also added that there are special prizes for senior citizens who finish atop their categories, noting that “Portmore has joined the rest of Jamaica as being health-conscious and exercise is known to do wonders to the human body when done inmoderation”.Warm-up is at 6:15 a.m., and the race will begin at 6:30 a.m. Proceeds of the event will go to a children’s scholarship/grant fund and a senior citizens’ recreational centre. Contributions are as follows: $1,000 per individual entry and $800 each for a group of 10.Lee pointed out that George was instrumental in Portmore becoming a Municipality. He was the first directly elected mayor of Portmore and the only man to serve as mayor twice.Dover Lawrence, who represented Sun City Radio and Dana Thomas of Bridgeport High School, were last year’s male and female winners, respectively.Top Hill win Jamalco Football LeagueTop Hill defeated Napoli 1-0 to be crowned the 2015 Jamalco Football League champions, at the Wembley Excellence Centre last weekend.Top Hill, who last won the title in 2011, secured the championship when Andrew ‘Joycie’ Issacs netted the lone goal of the game in the 15th minute. The goal developed from a free kick, which the Napoli custodian failed to collect and Isaacs was there to score from the rebound.The youthful Napoli team tried to pull one back. However, solid defending, mixed with counter-attacks from Top Hill, prevented their success.The competition ended with a total of 118 goals being scored at an average of 3.06 goals per game.Savannah’s Huggart ‘Sweetie’ Nugent with seven goals won the Golden Boot Award.Finalists confirmed in Peter Bunting netballBoth finalists in the junior and senior netball leagues sponsored by central Manchester’s Member of Parliament Peter Bunting were confirmed following last weekend’s semi-finals.At the Manchester High courts, Albion United and Newleigh All Stars secured their berth in contrasting fashion.Albion, the runners-up from the preliminary zone, created an upset after outscoring the previously unbeaten Comfort 13-11. The second final proved a predictable victory for the unbeaten Newleigh All Stars, who won 25-5 over Broadleaf Gators.The senior finalists will be Bombay and Williamsfield. Bombay were 27-11 winners over Woodlawn Phoenix while Williamsfield got the better of Mandeville All Stars 21-16.Manchester FA to hold AGMThe incumbent president for the last three terms, Dalton Wint, seeks re-election as the Manchester Football Association hosts its annual general meeting tomorrow at the Rural Agricultural Development Authority office on Caledonia Road in Mandeville.Wint also serves as the South Central Confederation general secretary. Quite noticeably, the top brass of that body was present at the recent 2015 season Manchester awards ceremony, including chairman Michael Ricketts and senior member Peter Reid, president of the St Catherine FA.

first_imgOn what can only be described as a miserable morning weather wise 254 women braved the wind and rain for the inaugural Rundonegal Womens 5k held in Glenveagh.The money raised went to charities nominated by the incumbent Donegal Lord Mayor Cora Harvey –  the benefitting charities Diabetes and Strengthening Families programme.Cora was indeed out their taking part joined by family members and all were set on their way by race director Grace Boyle pretty much on time at 11 am. Some chose to run, others walked and the best on the day was Letterkenny’s Noreen Mc Gettigan ahead from Clonmany teacher Teresa Doherty and Ballybofey athlete Noleen Porter 3rd.This is an event that surely will grow in the years ahead and with Donegal Co Co on board in support it offers an exciting prospect also too in years to come as the intention is that each incoming Mayor will lend their support and nominate a charity.A big thank you to the staff at Glenveagh and sponsors Lucozade and the usual support team without whom these community events just do not happen.  Rundonegal Womans 5K
