Brazil of St Ann defeated St Georges of Portland 4-3 on penalties to win the Charley’s JB Rum Eastern Confederation Super League football title, this after battling to a 1-1 scoreline in regulation and extra-time in the final at Drax Hall on Sunday.Brazil joins KSAFA’s Maverley/Hughenden, Western Confederation’s Granville and the South Central Confederation’s Jamalco in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL) play-offs, which begin on Sunday. The top two will qualify for next season’s RSPL.St George’s jumped in front right after the half-time break when Tyrone Brown scored for the Carl Brissett-coached team. But the Portland team was reduced to 10 men shortly after, when Oneil Brown was ejected for violent conduct.By the 57th minute, Brazil were right back in it when Andre Reid fired home a free kick for the equaliser.”Brazil is the stronger and the better team, and we have more fighting spirit,” said their head coach, David Galloway.”It was a tense moment, but we knew that once we got to penalties, Brazil would win because we have the better kickers and the better goalkeeper. We missed one penalty, but we knew we would bounce back and come out victorious,” he added.St Georges’ team manager, Cedric Ormsby, thought his team had a bad day.”It just wasn’t our day in terms of the matchup between us and Brazil. We are a far better team, but it was just a bad day, and bad days come in any sport. But we are very disappointed,” he stated.
THEY’RE the real night riders…the Donegal Mountain Bike Club members who plan to hit the trails of Gartan and Glenveagh this Friday night.So if anyone spots strange lights in the hills of Donegal this weekend, don’t worry – it won’t be UFOs!And they’re hoping new members will come along to see what all the fuss and fun is about. Paul Nash from the Donegal Mountain Bike Club said members had just taken possession of sophisticated new bike lights which will make their journey from Gartan through Glenveagh in the pitch black this Friday much easier.“I suppose with all the lights bopping about the place, some locals may think a UFO has landed,” said the 35-year-old.“With the darker evenings upon us, we still want to head out into the countryside after work so we’ve decided to do some night-time biking.“We will be staying off the main roads and taking to country paths around Gartan and Glenveagh. “We ordered hi-tech bike lights which will give us great visibility, especially in the darkness of the countryside.“We’d be delighted to see new members come along and enjoy night mountain biking.”The software developer at Letterkenny company Pramerica insisted amateurs are welcome.“We’ll be taking it fairly easy on Friday night but most importantly we will be sticking together for safety reasons. We don’t want to be losing anyone up there!” he added.The club is meeting at the boathouse at Gartan this Friday at 7.30pm and new members are welcome.
