‘It’s just about God’, says JC coach Coley

first_imgHaving pulled off a tactical masterpiece to edge high-riding St George’s College 1-0 and win their third consecutive ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup – the competition’s first three-peat in 48 years – Jamaica College’s (JC) tried and proven coach, Miguel Coley, said their sensational win was his best yet.Donovan Dawkins, who scored a semi-final brace against Denham Town High and who told The Gleaner he was confident he could score in the final, was the JC team’s hero on the evening.He glanced a brilliant header with his back turned to goal in the 88th minute to leave goalkeeper Cyle Elliott and sections of the Sabina Park crowd stunned, none more than the St George’s team, who could not muster an equaliser in the remaining minutes.Saturday’s title-clinching strike took Dawkins to eight goals this season.The Old Hope Road-based institution is now the undisputed kings of Manning Cup by virtue of finishing the tournament unbeaten with two draws, and 27 titles overall.”It’s just about God. It’s been a rough time and testing time and we just have to give Him thanks. We just have to give Him praise, He has always been there for me and this is my gift to Him.”As I say, team work makes the dream work,” said Coley.Clearly overcome with emotions on Saturday, Coley reflected on his team’s 4-0 drubbing by St George’s as the catalyst for this victory.”I just wanna apologise for the 4-0 Super Cup loss. We took our licks and bounced back. It was a tough game, George’s is a fantastic team and we had to counter them with physical play and good man-marking. Team work makes the dream work,” Coley reiterated.JC were 4-0 losers in the Flow Super Cup and lost on penalties in the Walker Cup to Wolmer’s Boys’, who will play St George’s College in that final.JC meanwhile will contest the Olivier Shield final against the rural area daCosta Cup champions, with few betting against the possibility of the Corporate Area titans JC and George’s finishing the season with two trophies apiece.last_img read more

Westlund in Pro/Celebrity Race

first_imgLONG BEACH – When businessman Jerry Westlund was much younger, his parents would drop him off at the gates of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach, he’d enjoy the race, and then he’d take the bus home. His mode of transportation at this year’s Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, Saturday, April 14 will be radically different. “I’m a lifelong Long Beach resident,” Westlund said. “I’ve been going to the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach for around 30 years and I’ve always wondered how I’d do if I ever got in the Pro/Celebrity Race. … I can’t wait to start training and line up on what is basically my home track.” Westlund will join the rest of the celebrity and professional field for four days of driver’s training conducted by Fast Lane Driving School at Willow Springs Raceway in Rosamond. One day of pre-event driver’s training and media exposure on Pro/Celebrity Press Day, plus practice and qualifying on Friday, April 13 will lead up to him taking the green flag at 11:45 a.m. Saturday, April 14 in the 10-lap sprint race over the storied 1.97-mile seaside street course. His winning bid earned him air fare, hotel accommodations, meals and ground transportation, as well as race-week dinners and related press and social activities, including a postrace “Victory Dinner.” Westlund will also receive a custom-made professional driver’s suit, along with shoes, helmet and gloves, and a $5,000 donation from Toyota will be made in his name to “Racing For Kids,” a national program benefiting two children’s hospitals in Southern California. That’s because the 41-year-old nightclub owner will be strapped in behind the wheel of a race-ready Scion tC, dueling with fellow competitors from film, television and sports in the 31st annual Toyota Pro/Celebrity Race, part of the Toyota Grand Prix of Long Beach weekend, April 13-15. Westlund, who owns 12 adult nightclubs in five states across the U.S., was high bidder in the recent auction on “longbeachgp.com” to win a chance to race on America’s most famed street circuit. His winning bid of $70,500 will go directly to the Grand Prix Foundation of Long Beach which, since its inception, has contributed more than $2 million to a wide cross-section of charitable organizations throughout the greater Long Beach area. center_img 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
