Goal-getter Ennis wants daCosta Cup glory for Glenmuir

first_imgWESTERN BUREAU: Glenmuir High School’s 19-year-old daCosta Cup team football captain, Jevaughn Ennis, has his teammates eyeing the big prize. For him, the target is more goals. The centre forward currently leads the race for the 2016 Inter-Secondary Schools Sports Association (ISSA)-FLOW daCosta Cup Golden Boot award – the title that goes to the leading scorer at the end of the season. He has so far netted 19 goals. Those strikes include three separate hat-tricks and a five-goal onslaught against Foga Road High in an earlier Zone M fixture. Ennis told The Gleaner that his lethal form is due to understanding the simple nuances of the game, which works better when his teammates understand their role in the system. Having gained rich experience as part of previous Glenmuir High teams over the past five years, Ennis is one of the first names on the team list. MODEST PLAYER The modest player said that while he would continue scoring goals, it will never be for personal gratification, but for the betterment of his team. “I never set personal targets like the number of goals I want to score in a year, because I am scoring them for my school. That is the important thing. As long as the team does well, I am happy,” said Ennis. Ennis has scored 19 of his team’s 33 goals in 10 matches so far, and with the inter-zone round about to get under way, his ambition is to continue his rich vein of form to take his team as far as possible in the competition. “As captain, I have to lead from the front, literally, and that means staying calm and collected and focused to get my job done well. So if that means scoring another 19 goals, then that is what I want to do,” he reasoned. “I believe we have what it takes to do well this year. My pace and skill make me a dangerous player for defenders. I hope to keep scoring,” said Ennis, whose school advanced to the inter-zone round in second place in the zone behind Garvey Maceo.last_img read more

(AP Photo/Tim Ireland)LONDON — Grigor Dimitrov’s talent took him to the brink of his biggest career win, but he needed more than that to get over the line.ADVERTISEMENT Margot Robbie talks about filming ‘Bombshell’s’ disturbing sexual harassment scene That was not the only record Dimitrov set. After winning all five of his matches at the O2 Arena, he became the first player to win the elite tournament on debut since 1998, when Alex Corretja of Spain triumphed in Hanover.“I was a little bit tired,” said Dimitrov, who beat Goffin for the loss of just two games when they met on Wednesday. “I had to play a few matches obviously back-to-back against solid opponents. I knew that David is going to try something new. He had to be aggressive in order so he doesn’t let me play my game.”Goffin’s adjustments paid off early as he broke Dimitrov’s first two service games either side of losing his own, before settling down to control the opener.However, Dimitrov fought his way back. He leveled in the eighth game before breaking once more in the 12th to snatch the set, despite Goffin hitting eight more winners.Dimitrov’s confidence carried into the second set, where he brought up the first break point in the sixth game, only for Goffin to produce a stunning cross-court backhand winner to save it. The momentum back with him, Goffin broke the following game for a 4-3 lead and calmly closed out the set.ADVERTISEMENT Having become the sixth player to beat Nadal and Federer at the same tournament — the latter from a set down in the semifinals — Goffin had every reason to be confident after drawing level. But he wasted four break points in the opening game and they would turn out to be his only chances in the decider.“I think after this week I’m a better player mentally,” said Goffin, who ends the season at a career-high No. 7 ranking. “I proved to myself that I can do it.”Dimitrov was more clinical, striking in the sixth game to take control of the third set. However, the Bulgarian has had problems closing matches out this season — losing three times after holding match points — and had cause for concern when Goffin saved his first three to hold from 0-40 down at 2-5.Dimitrov served his way to 40-15 but saw another chance drift away, before Goffin finally netted a backhand volley to end the match.“I was a little bit tired in the third,” Goffin said. “It’s the only game maybe I didn’t serve well. I didn’t put a lot of first serves in that game … He was really solid.”Dimitrov claimed his first Masters title in Cincinnati in August, and having risen to a career-high No. 3-ranking with victory in London, his next target is a Grand Slam.“I don’t want to get too hyped up because I’ve done well, now I’m No. 3 in the world,” Dimitrov said. “Of course, one of my main goals is to win a Grand Slam tournament. This has always been, again, a dream of mine.”        /kgaSports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.
