Gold pip Red at Eden Lodge
THE LIONS are roaring again, but they were almost stung by the Scorpions at Eden Lodge Primary School’s sports at the Usain Bolt Complex yesterday.
Just one point separated the top two houses as Gold (Lions), 457, pipped Red (Scorpions), 456 by the narrowest of margins for their ninth consecutive crown.
Ironically, Red were the last house to win the sports in 2007 and also by a single point before the Lions started their golden run.
Orange (Lemur), 347, and Green (Tigers) were a distant third and fourth on a keenly contested day when the athletes were cheered on by their parents, other family members and past students, seated in the eastern stand under two tents.

HEATED exchanges, raised voices, accusations and retorts dominated for more than an hour at the Employment Rights Tribunal which renewed hearings yesterday afternoon.
Tribunal chairman Hal Gollop and attorney for the National Conservation Commission, Mitch Codrington, exchanged verbal salvos and it took three adjournments of varying lengths before tempers eased and retired general secretary of the National Union of Public Workers Dennis Clarke resumed his testimony.
Gollop and Codrington began their war of words shortly after Codrington apologised for any inconvenience his absences in mid-December might have caused the tribunal.
Codrington added he had requested the transcripts from the two days he had missed but Gollop explained to him that the tribunal had no obligation to provide anyone with transcripts and it more a courtesy than anything else.
