Reggae Boyz striker Darren Mattocks is set to miss out on Jamaica’s participation in the Copa Centenario football tournament in the United States next month.Twenty-five year-old Mattocks, who was acquired by Portand Timbers from Vancouver Whitecaps in March this year, underwent surgery on Friday last to repair a torn meniscus and will be out for three to six weeks, according to information coming out of the club.The injury occurred in Portland’s 1-2 loss to FC Dallas, in which Mattocks was replaced at the 59th minute by Jack Barmby.Mattocks, who has scored 12 goals from 36 appearances for Jamaica, was expected to be a key member of the Reggae Boyz squad in the Copa Centenario. Drawn in a tough group with Mexico, Uruguay and Venezuela, an in-form Mattocks would have been an asset to the Boyz’s chance of advancement.Last year, he failed to score in all three of Jamaica’s Copa America matches in Chile, but had important goals in the semi-final win over the United States in the CONCACAF Gold Cup and a loss in the final against Mexico in that same competition to give Jamaica their best finish in the competition yet.The former Bridgeport High School standout was – after an impressive college career at Akron – the second overall pick in the 2012 MLS SuperDraft and enjoyed a stellar rookie season for the Vancouver Whitecaps, scoring seven goals and adding an assist as he finished third in Rookie of the Year voting.He enjoyed another strong season in 2014, scoring six goals and dishing out three assists, while earning a career-high 1,802 minutes.Afterwards, he saw his playing time drop to a career-low 848 minutes in 2015.In total, Mattocks has made 96 appearances for Vancouver in both regular season and post season play, netting 20 goals and adding six assists.At the national level, Mattocks’ best year was 2014. He opened his account for Jamaica in 2014 by scoring six goals in eight games, including three finishes during the 2014 Caribbean Cup, which the Reggae Boyz won for a sixth time.With Mattocks out, Reggae Boyz head coach Winfried Sch‰fer could rely more on Giles Barnes and Dever Orgill to support Clayton Donaldson.
Sanjay Smith of Lennon also went down with what appeared to be breathing issues and was also rushed to hospital as the Lennon coaching staff led by Merron Gordon, tried to marshall his players. But in a match that was really a must-win, the STETHS pedigree was put to the test in no uncertain terms by Lennon, with their midfielder Kwesi Watts pulling the strings. His crafty play was a revelation for spectators who were seeing him for the first time, and he left his mark with some superb passes through to his forwards darting through the STETHS defence line. In one brilliant move, Watts went around the STETHS goalkeeper and his superbly floated pass was met at the far post by Odane Grant, whose header found the back of the net for the lead in the 21st minute. Stung by the goal, STETHS made one major change at half-time, bringing on Brown for Denroy Miller, who had his first start for the season. The substitution immediately changed the complexion of the match, as Brown’s movement off the ball made the work easier in attack for his teammates. He would repay his coach with a clinical finish in the 61st minute to equalise and again scored in the 78th minute to bring his tally for the season to 13 goals. Yesterday’s results Breathing issues STETHS 2 Lennon 1 Cornwall College 6 Petersfield 0 Spot Valley 1 Godfrey Stewart 0 Port Antonio 5 Brimmer Vale 0 Dinthill 2 Steer Town 1 Manchester 1 Lacovia 0 Mile Gully 1 Holmwood 1 Alston 2 St Mary Tech 0 Spalding 1 Clarendon College 1 Ocho Rios 1 Fair Prospect 0 Western Bureau: A heavy downpour coupled with unrelenting flashes of lightning sent match officials, players and spectators scurrying for cover, temporarily curtailing action in the ISSA-FLOW daCosta Cup second-round game between St Elizabeth Technical (STETHS) and Lennon High in Santa Cruz yesterday. When the match resumed, STETHS held their nerve to register a come-from-behind 2-1 victory. Several other games were abandoned because of the torrential rain, including the Glenmuir versus Vere Technical encounter at the Juici Beef Complex. The Zone 8 match, featuring Kemps Hill and Garvey Maceo, was also called off. Lennon High pushed St Elizabeth Technical all the way, but in the end, a two-goal burst from Jovoney Brown lifted the home team to victory. The defending champions waltzed into the top spot in Zone Three with maximum six points from as many games. It was sweet victory for STETHS, but they had to do it without their classy centre back Clifton Woodbine, who suffered a head injury and momentarily lost consciousness and was rushed to the hospital. The extent of his injury was still unknown up to press time.
The absence of a trophy race on today’s midweek programme at Caymanas Park shifts the spotlight to the restricted allowance race (non-winners of two) to be contested by 13 three-year-olds over the round five course.Top contenders are the speedy pair of LUNAR ROCKET and BLUE MOON, who finished second and third respectively to LOTTERY TICKET over 1100 metres on November 5.The Fitznahum Williams-trained LUNAR ROCKET led at a fast clip into the straight ahead of BLUE MOON and although looking likely to hold on when two lengths clear a furlong out, was caught close to home by the fast-finishing LOTTERY TICKET in what was a fast-run race (1:05.4).Given the shorter distance and the presence of a more experienced rider in Robert Halledeen, LUNAR ROCKET should not be caught.Coming from a favourable draw at post position nine, she is again expected to out-sprint old rivals BLUE MOON with leading jockey Omar Walker and LIKE A LADY under former champion Wesley Henry, based on her 58.2 split for the first five furlongs last time out.FIRM FANCIESLUNAR ROCKET is still handily placed in the scales with 53.0kg and should go one better at the expense of the Wayne DaCosta-trained BLUE MOON, LIKE A LADY and PROUD PRESIDENT.Other firm fancies on the well-supported nine-race programme, which commences at 1:05 p.m. are the well-forward two-year-old debutante BAD GAL HILARY in the opening race for maiden two-year-olds; FIFTYONESTORM to rebound in the second, GOFORHOME in the fourth, MAN IN BLUE in the sixth over the straight and SIRMANDI in the closing race over 1500 metres for $180,000 claimers.
Improved time In the day’s other events, Ryon Chambers improved his 2016 second place finish with a big win to take home the 9K title in a time of 33:30, ahead of Jermaine Palmer 35:50. Yasuyuki Koyana was third in 36:14. Janetta Robinson won the female 9K in 43:29 defeating Jozanne Harris (44:09) and Tricia McCatty, third in 44:35. Paula Sinclair copped the female 5K Walk title with an impressive 33:14. Fern Townsend was second in 36:54 and Nadine Maitland, third in 37:20. Jon Saleen Oliphant secured the Male Walk title in 28:24, with Johnson Gladstone and O’Shea Morgan taking home second and third with times of 30:23 and 32:20 respectively. KINGSTON: The 2017 Everyone’s a Winner The Best Dressed Chicken Road Race Series got off to a fast start on Sunday at the Hope Botanical Gardens with Lenford Adams and Juliett Dinnal securing the top overall male and female titles respectively in the 5K run. Adams posted a time of 17:41 to win ahead of Shawn Pitter 17:56 and Jerome Kirby 18:23. Juliette Dinnal returned 22:18 to finish ahead of Sovereena Silburn, 24:30 and Victoria Nelson, 24:33 for second and third respectively. The race was the first event of the two-part series, with the second running slated for June 18. Adams, who was racing for the first time this season, said the event was a good start for the year. “I enjoyed the run today. It is a good route, and I think the other competitors all enjoyed the competition from each other. I knew most of the guys competing, including Pitter, but I had a strategy and I stuck to it. That proved to be the difference,” said Adams.
