Dino Williams continued his hot scoring form, netting a brace for leaders Montego Bay United, who halted Tivoli Gardens’ three-match winning run in the Red Stripe Premier League with a 2-0 win over the home team at Edward Seaga Sports Complex yesterday.Victory lifted the Montegonians two points clear and gave them sole leadership at the top of the standings on 17 points.Williams netted after just four minutes and added his second on 45 minutes for his eighth goal of the season.The striker, who has been nursing a groin injury for the last four weeks, capitalised on a mix up in defence to nod home the opener.Tivoli offered very little going forward in the first-half, with the visitors looking more threatening on the offensive and the speedy striker headed in from a corner just before the break to give his team a 2-0 lead at the interval.However, Williams did not return after half-time.”I am not 100 per cent fit, and as an injured player, to get two goals in a tough game, I can’t complain,” the 25-year-old national striker said after.”To come out and score two goals I have to give thanks, because every time you come out as a forward you want to score and to get two more today, to push my tally to eight, feels great … . So I have to just keep working hard, and each game I come out and see if I can do it for my team,” he continued.”When you are on a run, you know at some time you are going to go on a drought, so each time you play you just have to try to score. Sometime during the season the drought is going to come, so I just have to make sure I get as many in the first round to go into the second round,” he added.TRANSFORMEDAfter the break, Tivoli came out transformed and pinned their opponents in defence for half-hour. Junior Flemming was the main antagonist, taking right back Donovan Carey apart at will, but his teammates, especially Miguel Ricketts, failed to take advantage of his good work down the left.Although the intensity dropped after 75 minutes, Tivoli continue to threaten but could not find the net despite some near misses.MoBay moved two points clear of Portmore United, who were held to a 1-1 draw by Reno, which advanced to 12 points. Tivoli dropped to 11 points.MoBay’s coach, Timothy Hankinson, said the early goal gave them the start they wanted and the second put them on the path to victory.”Tivoli is a determined squad, they never gave up and we were fortunate to hold our goal clean. We are proud to find a way to be successful to this point, but we know there are a lot of challenges ahead,” he said.Tivoli’s coach, Christopher Bender, said: “The team wasn’t at it best and they needed to be for this contest.”Yesterday’s ResultsTivoli Gardens 0 MoBay United 2Reno 1 Portmore United 1Humble Lion 1 UWI FC 0Boys’ Town 1 Cavalier 0Arnett Gardens 1 Waterhouse 0Today’s game8:40 p.m. Harbour vs Rivoli United
Vice-Chancellor of the University of the West Indies, Professor Sir Hilary Beckles, has urged the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to implement the most crucial reform aspect of the Patterson Report.Telling the WICB president Dave Cameron that reform was the “duty of his generation”, Sir Hilary pointed to Carlos Brathwaite’s heroics of four sixes off the first four balls of the final over in the men’s final which fired West Indies to victory over England and stressed that it was now left to the regional governing body to complete the process.”All that is now required is for the WICB, president and directors, to complete the over,” Sir Hilary said in a letter to media.”There are two balls left to face, one is to accept the governance reform that calls for the Council of Stakeholders as set out in the Patterson Report, and the other is to recognise that by accepting the governance interdependence of cricket and society is not to lose autonomy.”The players have done their job on the field. It is now for the president, whose heart resides in cricket as much as any one of us, to do his and lead his board boldly into the rest of the decade with public support and popular legitimacy.”The Patterson Report, commissioned by the WICB and authored by former Jamaica Prime Minister P.J. Patterson, was produced in 2007, but its main recommendations have been ignored by the WICB.Among these proposals are the implementation of a Council of Stakeholders, comprising 23 members and, according to the Report, “representative of a wide cross section of stakeholders and will determine policies and strategies and provide guidance for the development of West Indies cricket”.This council would appoint the president, vice-president and the executive directors.West Indies cricket is being destroyed by “internal conflict and acrimony.”Without this reform, West Indies runs the risk of being razed to the ground by internal conflict and acrimony,” he pointed out.”The golden monument we have all built as a tribute to our cultural tenacity and collective wisdom must come first. This is your task, Mr President. It’s a duty of your generation.”Noticeably, Sir Hilary made no reference to the most recent Caricom-commissioned Governance Report, which last year called for the “immediate dissolution” of the WICB.Speaking last November after the report was made public, Sir Hilary said he believed institutions like UWI and the WICB needed to be “preserved for posterity”, but also adapt to changing times.- CMC

Amateur Swimming Association of Jamaica (ASAJ) president, Handel Lamey, is throwing full support behind his sport’s standard bearer Alia Atkinson, who he is hoping will win her second RJR Sports Foundation National Sportsman and Sportswoman of the Year award next month. The prestigious annual awards ceremony will be held on January 13 at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston. Two years ago, Atkinson, 28, won her sport’s first national award since Belinda Phillips’ 1974 nod. According to Lamey, the only blemish on Atkinson’s high-calibre performances this year was her failure to medal at the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro earlier this year, but he was quick to underline her impact on the sport both locally and internationally, pointing to her as a worthy candidate. “I think she is a very strong candidate for this year being that she (equalled the) 100m world record, (set a new) 50m world record and the only thing is that she did not achieve an Olympic medal, but in terms of performances, she has done exceedingly well,” the ASAJ boss told The Gleaner yesterday. Atkinson, who won three medals at the Short Course (SC) World Championships recently and broke the 50m breaststroke SC world record, will be looking to upstage a high-level field which favours double Olympic sprint champion Elaine Thompson, who is looking for her first hold on the award. TREMENDOUS IMPACT Locally, Lamey describes to the swimmer’s impact as tremendous, noting that the she has now become a household name and continues to lift the sport in a positive light. “It’s a big deal for us, considering that she has been the only swimmer in a long time that has won the award,” said Lamey. “She is very good to have been nominated on so many occasions and having won it.” Meanwhile, the overseas-based Atkinson has also lifted the prestige of swimming by virtue of being back-to-back runner-up in 2012 and 2013 behind sprint queen Shelly-Ann Fraser-Pryce. “She is our winner, she is our standardbearer and topped the sport here in Jamaica, and she has a very good international ranking and standing also. When you look out there in the swimming environment, there aren’t that many black swimmers coming from this region who are participating at that level,” said Lamey. After her disappointment in Rio, Atkinson equalled the 100m breaststroke world record in her return to the pool, clocking 1:02.36 on August 26 in France. She then posted 28.64 to break a seven-year SC record by 0.16 seconds at a meet in Tokyo. The Jamaican finished second in the overall World Cup points standings and in a dominant showing, won all eight 50m breaststroke events that she started. Besides Atkinson and Phillip, the only other swimmer to win the National Sportswoman of the Year award is Frances Noble, who did so 1968. Phillip Alexander (1965) and Paul Nash (1969) are the only National Sportsman of the Year recipients.
