Price: BT not yet out of the woods

first_img “With seven games to go, I told the players that we needed to win all games to stay up. We had a blip in the loss against Waterhouse. Now, we have to gain at least a point in the last game to be safe,” he explained. Price praised his senior players for their roles in the team’s revival. “The leadership of senior players – Michael Campbell, Daemion Benjamin, Wayne Ellis, Garfield Gillespie, Rafiek Thomas, Xavian Virgo, as well as young Shamar Nicholson who has netted 14 goals, has been very good,” the former Boys’ Town defender pointed out. With Arnett already safe and still in contention for the title, Price is not taking comfort from that. “We are going to Arnett to win the game on merit, show integrity. It is a Trench Town derby. It is a big game,” Price noted. Andrew Price, the coach of relegation threatened Boys’ Town, said that despite his team’s good recent form, they need at least a point against neighbouring Arnett Gardens in the Trench Town derby tomorrow at the Anthony Spaulding Sports Complex.. Having spent four months in last place in the Red Stripe Premier League, Boys’ Town are enjoying their best form of the season with five wins in their last six league games. That impressive form moved the Collie Smith Drive-based team into ninth position on 35 points ahead of Waterhouse (34), Maverley-Hughenden (32) and already relegated Jamalco who are at the bottom on 30 points. However, after being written off as likely candidates for relegation, Boys’ Town just need to avoid defeat in their last fixture in order to be safe for the nation’s elite league next season. “We are not out of the woods yet,” Price who has been coaching Boys’ Town for over ten years told The Gleaner.

Local MMA fighter Brad Stewart ready for upcoming fight

Stewart will be entering the bout with a record of 5-2, and will be squaring off against Matt “The Riotmaker” Baker for the Fivestar Fight League’s middleweight title. It won’t be the first time these two have met, as Stewart previously dropped a split decision to Baker in 2010.Stewart says that this time around he’ll be better prepared for Baker.“I’ve been working on my cardio. My first fight, I didn’t have as much time to train as this fight,” he says. “I wasn’t in good enough shape for it, so I got gassed right away so I think that will make the difference. My striking is a lot better, and I have another two years of training in.”- Advertisement -Baker meanwhile enters the contest with a record of 8-3 and was victorious in his last fight in July of last year.Stewart says that Baker is a fighter who likes to take things to the ground.“He does a lot of jiu-jitsu, from what I’ve seen, a lot of ground and pound. He does a lot of take downs as well.”Advertisementlast_img read more
