Yesterday’s results Innswood 4 Kingston Technical 0 Spanish Town 0 Excelsior 1 Jonathan Grant 1 Vauxhall 0 Bridgeport 1 Wolmer’s 2 St George’s College vs Denham Town Today’s game Cumberland High, led by a second-half hat-trick by Leonard James, came from two goals down to score a shock 3-2 victory over Dunoon High in an ISSA/FLOW Manning Cup Group E game at Rockfort Sports Club field yesterday. The win gave Cumberland their first points of the 2015 competition. They had lost their previous eight matches. James fired home his goals in the 51st, 87th, and 90th minutes. Dunoon went 2-0 up courtesy of Shackel Campbell (14th) and substitute Kashief Gordon (42nd). Dunoon came into the game confident of victory against lowly Cumberland but remained on 10 points with two games remaining. They still have a mathematical chance of advancing to the next round. James was happy that he was able to score all the goals in his team’s first win of the season. “It’s a pleasure to score for the team. They know I am capable, and I went out there and executed. The coach (Wayne Fraser) told me how to play and I followed his instructions,” James, a 15 year-old in his second year in the Manning Cup, told The Gleaner. Fraser added: “The feeling is great! First, thank the Lord for this win today! Well, our senior players are just coming back into the team, so we have been playing better.” On the other hand, coach of Dunoon Gregory Hall was obviously disappointed that his team gave the game away in the dying moments. “We have so many things to work on,” Hall said. “We led comfortably and then lost the game, but they are youngsters, so I won’t come down hard on them. We remain optimistic (of advancing), with two games remaining in the round,” added Hall, a former Dunoon goalkeeper.
An intercomparison of zenith-sky UV-visible spectrometers was held at Camborne, UK, for 2 weeks in September 1994. Eleven instruments participated, from nine different European institutes which were involved with the Second European Stratospheric Arctic and Mid-latitude Experiment (SESAME) campaign. Four instruments were of the Systeme d’Analyse d’Observations Zénithales (SAOZ) type, while the rest were particular to the institutes involved. The results showed that the SAOZ instruments were consistent to within 3% (10 DU) for ozone and 5% for NO2. For ozone the results from these instruments agreed well with total ozone measurements by Dobson and Brewer spectrophotometers and integrated ozonesondes when the air mass factors for the SAOZ were calculated using the ozonesonde profiles. Differences of up to 10% in ozone and 30% in NO2 were found between different instruments. In some cases these differences are attributable to the different absorption cross sections used in the analysis of the spectra, but other discrepancies remain to be investigated. A prominent source of error identified in the campaign was uncertainty in the derivation of the amount of absorber in the reference spectrum, which can contribute an error of up to 3% (10 DU) in ozone and 1.5×1014 molecules cm−2 in NO2.
