FOR the third year running, Florida-Guyana Hope, a non-profit organisation based in Florida USA, will collaborate with Regal Stationery and Computer Centre for a series of charity events throughout Guyana and a feature cricket match at Crabwood Creek.The group, which comprises Guyanese that are now living in Florida, got together to accumulate resources to assist members of the Guyanese society who may need a helping hand. Since the majority of the Florida-Guyana Hope membership originally hailed from Corriverton a lot of the relief efforts are centred on that area.Tomorrow, the kind-heated gentlemen will match their skills against a Corriverton United Select team in an exhibition softball cricket match for bragging rights and fun, at the Crabwood Creek Sports Complex from 12:00hrs. Following the game, a grand donation of 40 wheelchairs and 20 walking aids will be made.In addition to the donation, the visitors will be spreading cheer to at least four Children’s Home around the country including West Demerara, East Coast Demerara and Georgetown.Some members of the Florida-Guyana Hope organisation include president Mohamed Yassin, vice-president Rajroop Ramkellawan (Bowie), treasurer Raj Bharat, secretary Guru Shivram and officers Anthony Dhannie and Buddy Rampersaud, some of whom will be part of the activities over the next few days.Other than charity work, the versatile Guyanese are very active on the field. In February this year, they played in the South Florida Softball Cricket League-organised Florida Cup and despite not winning the tournament they won many hearts.However, they have their fair share of troubles too. While preparations were ongoing for the annual trip to Guyana, some members were severely affected when hurricane Irma hit Florida and caused widespread damage. Yet, they decided to continue with the planned visit to help those in need.For the cricket match tomorrow, Florida-Guyana Hope members will be joined by friends including Mahendra Hardyal of Regal Stationery, Steve Narain of Steve’s Jewellery, Atif Khan of M&J Khan Grocery and Guyana Times Sport Editor, John Ramsingh with the aim of making their side a more balanced one.Teams for tomorrow’s cricket match are: Corriverton United James Hart (captain), Vibert Dan (vice-captain), Anthony Seeraj, Michael Dan, Lawrence Mentis, Raymond Lowenfield, Hassan Mohamed, Mirza Ally, Patrick Mentis, Zafrul Khan, Vishal Persaud, Fabian Seerraj, Akash Lutchman and Orin George.

Head coach Younes Limam won the Wilson/ITA coach of the year, associate head coach Shelley George took home ITA assistant coach of the year and Gabriela Knutson was awarded ITA senior player of the year. SU’s (14-13, 5-9 Atlantic Coast) season ended with a 4-1 loss to Stanford in the second round of the NCAA tournament on May 5, and only Knutson qualified for the NCAA singles and doubles championships that begin on Monday in Orlando, Florida.Over the past five months, the Orange constructed one of the most successful seasons in their 44-year history. They swept both matches during ITA Kick-Off Weekend — including a 4-2 victory over then-No. 9 Michigan — and advanced to the ITA National Team Indoor Championship for the first time. Two four-match winning streaks sandwiched a two-week losing streak to open the season, but during that time SU climbed to No. 10 in the Oracle/ITA rankings, its highest ever.In his five seasons at Syracuse, Limam has led the Orange to their only three NCAA tournament appearances in program history alongside George — who completed her 12th season with the Orange this year. The pair has developed All-Americans in Knutson and her doubles partner junior Miranda Ramirez, attracted top transfers in sophomore Guzal Yusupova and established international recruiting connections in countries such as Russia.Knutson, who moved into No. 2 for all-time career wins on Feb. 17 against Harvard, has compiled a 16-10 singles record this year to go along with a 14-11 doubles record, both lower than last season. But SU’s top singles player consistently competed with the top-ranked opponents despite nagging arm issues late in the season. Knutson defeated then-No. 5 Makenna Jones of UNC and took Miami’s then-No. 2 Estela Perez-Somarriba to two tiebreakers.Behind her backhand, a strength since she first began playing tennis at age 2, Knutson peaked at No. 4 and No. 13 in the singles rankings the past two years. She begins her second consecutive NCAA singles tournament appearance against Washington’s No. 57 Stacey Fung on Monday at 10 a.m. Last year, Knutson advanced to the round of 16 before falling to Pepperdine’s Mayar Sherif in three sets.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Comments
Hugh ‘The Yank’ Boyle in action for Naomh Muire.GAA: A late, late goal from Hugh ‘The Yank’ Boyle in the last minute of normal time rescued Donegal against in Mayo in the North-West Cup Final this afternoon in Strandhill, Co. Sligo.Boyle’s decisive strike in the final minute of normal time capped a superb comeback for Donegal which sent the game into extra-time.However, despite the additional period of play – neither side could be separated at the end and both sides will have to do it all over again. Donegal will be delighted considering they had a severely depleted squad this afternoon.Several of their key players were involved with the Donegal senior side, while their Kilcar contingent where involved in Ulster U21 action.However, Bonner will be delighted with how his charges applied themselves against a top side in Mayo.The game, in truth was a cagey affair and it was a low-scoring game played in dreadful conditions. Mayo led at half-time on a score-line of 1-03 to 0-04 with the goal coming from Barry Duffy.Mayo extended their lead in the second-half, but Donegal refused to give up and crawled back a four-point deficit as the game ticked towards the final whistle.Jack O’Brien turned over possession and played in his Naomh Muire teammate Hugh ‘The Yank’ Boyle who cheekily lobbed the keeper to send the game into extra-time.Donegal led by two points in ET, but Mayo pegged them back to leave the game all level at the death for a second time.Mayo wanted to play more additional time, but Donegal refused so more than likely the game will be replayed.
