Waterford to defend INSPORTS football title

 

Waterford Primary will launch the defence of their Institute of Sports (INSPORTS) Portmore Primary League football title next week Friday when they oppose Ascot Primary in the feature match of a double-header, as the league kicks off with a uniform parade and opening games at Portsmouth Primary playing field, starting at noon.

Prior to that match, Portsmouth, who placed third last season, will tackle Gregory Park at 10 a.m., while at 11 a.m., the uniform parade and opening ceremony will take centre stage.

Waterford are in a rebuilding stage as most of their star players have left. However, they have a young crop of ballers who are eager to shine.

Portsmouth have retained most of their players and are well set for a title charge. Independence City, Bridgeport, Gregory Park and the ever-improving Kensington are expected to be in the mix of things.

 

Jamaica Domino Council Premier League

 

There seems to be no stopping Waterhouse United this season.

Fresh from their mid-season triumph over Braeton All Stars, Waterhouse United took down another heavyweight opponent as they outclassed Caribbean Classic 300-290 during the return-leg matches in the Jamaica Domino Council Association's Premier League last Sunday.

In other games, Spit Fyah burnt Mechanical Strikers 300-228; Right Stuff whipped Soursop Tree 300-275; Small Axe cut down Highlight Strikers 300-286; Naggo Head outlasted Jade Strikers 300-294; Vintage Pub clipped Memory Lane 300-298 in a cliffhanger and Exceptional thumped International 300-264.

 

INSPORTS netball to start Wednesday

 

The Institute of Sports (INSPORTS) Portmore Primary Netball League will tip off with opening games and a dress parade at Waterford Primary School this coming Wednesday.

The feature match pits Portsmouth against Gregory Park at noon, while the opening game at 10 a.m. pits Naggo Head and Waterford Primary, and is expected to be quite competitive.

The opening ceremony and dress parade will be at 11 a.m.

Portsmouth, the two-time defending champions, will again have favourite status written on their backs. However, schools like Naggo Head, the recent INSPORTS/Klato Sutherland Portmore Primary Netball Rally champions, Ascot and Waterford Primary, will be breathing down their neck in the race for the title.
