Waterhouse, Harbour View secure playoff spots in RSPL

Waterhouse, Harbour View, secure playoff spots while Montego Bay United and Arnett Gardens close in With four rounds remaining in the Red Stripe Premier League (RSPL), the top four playoff spots are all but sewn up by Waterhouse, Harbour View, Montego Bay United and Arnett Gardens while August Town kept their slim survival hopes alive . Leaders Waterhouse secured their playoff spot and in the process inflicted a cruel blow to the hopes of Tivoli Gardens with a come from behind came from behind 3-1 win at Drewsland. Former National striker Navion Boyd gave the visiting Tivoli Gardens a 37th minute lead converting from the penalty spot but Waterhouse struck three unanswered second half goals through Damarley Samuels (55th), Kenroy Howell (74th), Jevaunie Benjamin (89th). The Anthony Patrick-coached Waterhouse remained in top spot on 53 points while Tivoli Gardens stayed in fifth spot on 36 points, nine adrift of the playoff spot and with only four games remaining, they need a miracle to snatch that spot from Arnett Gardens. Tivoli Gardens have Portmore United, Humble Lion, Cavalier and Rivoli United left to play and must win them all and pray that Arnett Gardens lose their remaining matches. At Juici Patties Park in Clarendon, a beautiful Nicholas Beckett free kick in the 73rd minute gave Harbour View a 1-0 win over Sporting Central Academy in a game marred by poor officiating. The decisive moment came when Sporting Goalkeeper Allien Whittaker controlled a ball on his chest just outside the box but referee Raymond Bogle thought he used his hand and gave Harbour View a free kick from which Beckett scored. It was a result that moved Harbour View into a clear second on 51 points and sealed their semi-final spot. But it was a cruel blow for Sporting which slipped a spot to eighth on 34 points and in a real dog fight to survive relegation. They are just two points above the relegation zone and that can be changed when Boys Town (33) and Portmore United (32) meet on Monday. For more updates and results visit: www.jfdb.info

UN warns over ‘mass destruction’ of banana crop

UN warns over ‘mass destruction’ of banana crop
A warning has been issued by the United Nations over the potential ‘massive destruction’ of the world’s banana crop if a disease affecting the most popular variety spreads from Asia to Africa and the Middle East. According to the UN, the disease is “posing a serious threat to production and export” of bananas, which is the fourth most important food crop for the world’s least developed countries. According to a UN official countries need to act now to avoid the worst case scenario, which includes the affect on employment and government revenues in several tropical countries. The TR4 strain of the Panama disease is one of the world’s most destructive and affects the Cavendish variety (the most popular banana in global exports). This disease is soil borne and the fungus can remain viable for two decades, but it is dangerous to humans.
