first_imgBridgeport High advanced to the semi-finals of the ISSA-FLOW Walker Cup knockout competition with an easy commanding 2-0 win over Denham Town High at the Constant Spring Complex yesterday. Shane Moodie sealed the victory in the 90th minute with a brilliant goal after Javaughn Dunn had headed the Portmore-based school in the lead in the 40th minute. Moodie’s goal was one of the best seen in urban area schoolboy football this season. He made a good run down the left before controlling a peach of a cross from Ronaldo Banks on his chest. He then struck a ferocious volley which rocketed into the roof of the Denham Town net to end the game in style. It was the midfielder’s second goal of the season. “So far, I have scored two goals; this one is very special because I helped to send the team to the semi-finals in the Walker Cup, so this is a blessing to score on this day,” he said. Winning coach Garnett Lawrence was elated with the victory. “It wasn’t one of our best games of the season, but when you come to a knockout, it’s a knockout, so we give God thanks for the victory, and we will just press on for the next game,” he said. Meanwhile, Denham Town’s coach Andrew Edwards said his team “deviated from our game and paid the price”.last_img read more

This will help save water stored in reservoirs and avoid further shortages throughout the county .With the experience from the widespread disruption last winter we are highlighting the following areas in particular where the public can help eliminate wastage of the public water supply:Running taps – please avoid leaving taps running. This is counter productive and will run down available water in storageBurst mains / leakage – any suspected leaks on watermains or wastage should be reported to the County Council at your local public services centre. Vacant properties – please continue to check vacant properties where internal plumbing may be damaged by freezing conditions. Ideally the water supply to vacant buildings should be turned off and systems drained of all water, e.g. where members of the public who are going on holiday during the coming months, we would recommend that they turn off the water supply to their premises and drain all water out of the system before leaving the property.Farming Community – we ask that you check all field connections and turn off leaking drinking troughs. This has proven to be a serious problem in rural areas in recent years. We also ask for your assistance in checking for burst pipes in farm buildings and burst hoses laying over ground. Essentially anywhere on the farm that water may be lostCaravan Parks – another area that is often remote where plumbing may be exposed and water losses can be slow to appear, we appeal to all caravan park owners to turn off the water supply to eliminate wastage.Once again the co-operation of every community is required if we are to avert widespread shortages in water supplies.
