NewsRegional Montserrat police conducting internal investigation into misconduct allegations by: – January 18, 2012 Share Tweet 20 Views no discussions Sharing is caring! Flag of Monsterrat. Photo credit; flags.netBRADES, Montserrat (GIU) –The Royal Montserrat Police Service has been conducting an extensive internal investigation into allegations of police misconduct during and following the arrests of George Leonard and George Farrell on the morning of 17 December 2011. As a result of the investigation, one officer has been suspended from duty and another is on compulsory leave pending further investigation. The Governor has decided that, in addition to the very comprehensive internal investigation undertaken to date, he should activate the provisions of a co-operation agreement on reciprocal law enforcement assistance between the Caribbean Overseas Territories. This will enable law enforcement officers from the Bermuda and Cayman police services to come to Montserrat to assist in the on-going investigation under the command and direction of Deputy Commissioner Paul Morris and present their findings to the Director of Public Prosecutions through the Governor. The police officers should begin their work early next week.by Nerissa Golden Caribbean News Now Share Share
Giana Wameling beat out a bunt single. Then, on a 3-2 pitch, Alayna Harbaugh tripled to the wall, scoring Wameling, and then trotted home on Brandi Feeney’s RBI single.Brooke Nicolaos walked, and so did Ally Cifaratta to load the bases. Jordyn Maldonado watched Young throw a wild pitch to plate another run and, moments later, singled home Nicolaos and Cifaratta. It was 5-0 before B’ville had even recorded an out.Young was pulled in favor of Taylor Tripodi, who kept C-NS from adding to that total the rest of the first inning and, for the rest of the night, would do a superb job, only surrendering single runs off wild pitches in the second and fourth innings.Still, that early outburst made the ultimate difference, partially because Corasaniti, as she put it, was “as focused as I could be” in atoning for her struggles in her last outing against the Bees.Twice, B’ville tried to put together sustained rallies. In the third inning, two walks, plus Kaycee Hawk’s single, loaded the bases, but though a wild pitch scored a run, Corasaniti prevented anything more.Then, in the sixth, C-NS, up 7-1, had one more nervous moment. Two leadoff singles, plus one by Tripodi with two outs, created another bases-loaded situation, and Chloe Branshaw singled to bring two runs home.Corasaniti recovered to strike out pinch-hitter Kyrah Wilbur to end that threat and then, in the seventh, retired Mattison Phinney, Madison Ascioti and Hawk in order, fanning Hawk to end it, her ninth strikeout of the night.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Just as all of them do when such a feat is accomplished, members of the Cicero-North Syracuse softball team posed for pictures with the championship banner after it defeated Baldwinsville 7-3 in Monday night’s Section III Class AA title game at Carrier Park.But that wasn’t enough.Head coach Mary Beebe invited some of the Northstars’ biggest fans for more pictures. Then she brought in parents, grandparents, other relatives and friends for one more round of photos. All of them enjoyed, as much as possible, C-NS’s accomplishment of a third consecutive sectional championship, earned against a B’ville side that was aiming for a first-ever title and fought hard all the way to the end – but never recovered from the devastating early blow the Northstars threw at them.So much of this game was a direct response to the Bees beating C-NS 14-8 back on May 8, a game where B’ville got to Northstars pitcher Ariana Corasaniti for five first-inning runs and led 14-0 before hanging on late.Here, Corasaniti weathered a top of the first where an error and single put two B’ville runners on base before Kayla Young lined out. Then C-NS had its turn at the plate. Tags: BaldwinsvilleC-NSSoftball
Jamaica’s Sunshine Girls crushed Caribbean neighbors Barbados, to win their fourth straight game in Pool A of the Commonwealth Games in Australia on Monday.Playing at the Gold Coast Convention and Exhibition Center, the powerhouses stamped their authority on the contest from early to come away with a 76-32 victory.While the result kept the Sunshine Girls unbeaten in the competition, it represented the second defeat for the Barbadians, who suffered a similar hammering in their opening game to hosts and world champions Australia.Jamaica were spearheaded by goal shooter Jhaniele Fowler-Reid who scored 32 from 36 attempts while Romelda Aiken shot 28 from 33, in her time also at goal shooter.Goal attack Shanice Beckford supported with 12 goals from 14 attempts.Barbados were never given the chance to get going and goal shooter Latonia Blackman was limited to 17 from 19 attempts.Jamaica wasted little in charging to a 22-9 lead at the first quarter, an advantage which they converted into a 39-15 half-time lead to put the contest virtually out of sight.It was more of the same in the third quarter as the Jamaicans outscored Barbados 18-7 to lead 57-22 at the start of the final stanza, and they pressed home their advantage down the stretch to close out strongly.Jamaica’s biggest test will come on Wednesday when they clash with the Aussies in their final outing of the preliminaries.Barbados, meanwhile, take on Northern Ireland on Tuesday before wrapping up their preliminary campaign against South Africa on Wednesday.
