Brazil earn draw with late goal – Victory puts Jamalco on top

first_imgPecheeko Green’s added time equaliser earned Brazil FC a crucial point from a 1-1 draw with host Maverley-Hughenden in the second round of games in the Charley’s JB Rum Premier League playoffs, at Maverley Complex yesterday. Jamalco lead the standings with maximum six points after a 1-0 win over St James’ Granville FC at Wembley Centre of Excellence. Andrew Isaacs scored the winner at the 63rd minute. Maverley are second in the table with four points, followed by Brazil with one and Granville are yet to get off the mark. At Maverley Complex, the home team had the better of the opportunities in the first half and had only themselves to blame for not going into the break with an advantage. However, four minutes upon the resumption, they took the lead when Rohan Williams headed home from a corner. The home team’s hopes of taking three points were dashed when Green rose above a stagnant Maverley defence to head home from a free-kick just outside the area. Phillip Peddie had a great chance to win the game for the hosts, but he failed to score from six yards. Maverley’s head coach, Lijyasu Simms, lamented: “It’s a tough feeling. We lost concentration in the last minute. We didn’t take our chances and sometimes it ends like this. “But we cannot drop our heads because the journey continue and our aim is to get into the Red Stripe Premier League,” he added. Brazil’s coach, former Arnett Gardens striker, Kirk Ramsey, said: “The plan was to get three points, and if we can’t get three, we take one. “We came to Maverley knowing it was going to be hard, but we worked hard and picked up this well needed point. Now we can’t afford to drop another point, so we are going to work hard each game for three points,” he said.last_img read more

Getting Insulation Out of Your Walls and Ceilings

first_imgMore and more builders have realized the advantages of leaving stud bays empty and putting all of a home’s insulation outside of the wall and roof sheathing. If done correctly, exterior insulation can help produce a building that is almost airtight, very well insulated, and almost immune to water damage.The construction method was first developed in the early 1960s by the National Research Council of Canada. In its purest form, the method is known as PERSIST — an acronym for Pressure-Equalized Rain-Screen Insulated Structure Technique.Here’s how you build a PERSIST house:To some builders and building inspectors, PERSIST details seem counterintuitive or dangerous. One typical reaction is, “You can’t install peel-and-stick over your wall sheathing! It’s a wrong-side vapor barrier! The membrane will trap moisture! The walls can’t dry out!”Actually, the peel-and-stick works perfectly. The membrane acts as a combined air barrier, vapor barrier, and water-resistant membrane (WRB). Because the membrane completely seals the walls and roof, it produces an unusually airtight envelope.Since the membrane is on the warm-in-winter side of the insulation, it’s exactly where it belongs. All of the home’s framing and sheathing is on the conditioned side of the membrane, so these wood components are maintained at indoor conditions. That means they aren’t subject to swings in humidity or temperature; the framing stays stable and dry in all seasons, in all climates.On the exterior side of the membrane, there aren’t any components which are likely to suffer any moisture damage. Since the system includes a rainscreen behind the siding, any water that gets past the siding drains quickly from the walls.PERSIST has a few disadvantages. It costs more than conventional construction, because of the cost of the peel-and-stick membrane, the two layers of… This article is only available to GBA Prime Members Start Free Trial Already a member?
