Saints take Game one, can capture BCIHL title Saturday at NDCC

first_imgThe Selkirk Saints are a win away from completing an amazing turnaround season after edging Simon Fraser 2-0 in Game one of the B.C. Intercollegiate Hockey League Championship series Friday at the NDCC Arena.Selkirk, going from worst to first in one season, can capture the BCIHL title Saturday in Nelson.Puck drop is 7:30 p.m.The Saints were led to the victory by netminder Alex Sirard who stopped 23 shots to register the shutout. However, at the other end of the ice, Selkirk had trouble beating SFU counterpart Graeme Gordon kept the game scoreless until late in the second period when blueliner Justin Sotkowy scored with a wrist shot through traffic on a Saints man-advantage.And after waiting nearly 40 minutes to open the scoring, the hosts struck again on the power-play just over a minute later when Mason Spear banked a puck off of Gordon from behind the goal line to double the Selkirk lead.”SFU has a highly-skilled team and we were able to hold them off the board tonight with a very good defensive effort, especially from Alex (Sirard),” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois.”He made a number of big saves, especially in the latter part of the second period before we finally got a couple past Gordon. The work ethic was great from top to bottom but we’re going to need an even better performance in order to finish things off.”The Saints held SFU to just four shots on goal in the third period and were foiled by Gordon on a number of opportunities to build their advantage. TSelkirk out shot SFU 29-23. A third and deciding game, if necessary, would take place back at the Castlegar Complex on Sunday at 6 p.m.last_img read more

Aduriz against Soldier, two good friends for a Cup final

first_imgTo cover two such notable absences, Manuel Llorente and Braulio Vázquez signed to Roberto Soldado and Aritz Aduriz, for fourteen million euros (ten for the Valencian and four for the San Sebastian). Emery He accepted the challenge of having a legendary duo forgotten. They joined a Juan kill which began to be the reference in the core. The case is that the Soldier-Aduriz society was set at a level of notoriety similar to that of Villa-Silva. In 2010, in one of those years of tsunami continued in Valencia and in full inheritance of Juan Soler, the two franchise players of the entity che had to pack. Shortly before David Villa and David Silva became world champions with Spain, they proceeded to sell both to Barcelona the first for 40 million euros and at Manchester City the canary, for 33. Good money to float a not very long time. From that coexistence, both forged a friendship that lasts until today. In fact, in 2016, when Soldier was in the Villarreal at full capacity scorer, he defended the call of an Aritz in his second youth with The Red for the European Euro Cup The Valencian battering ram was questioned for a possible citation by Forest, and far from pulling phrases, it was blunt: “Talking that I can go to the National Team is a lack of respect for what Aduriz is doing.”His path separated in 2012. Aritz returned to his beloved Athletic, where he is already a legend, and Roberto tried the Premier, in the Tottenham, where he barely had prominence, so two years later he completed the return operation, in the Yellow Submarine. Then he tried another experience outside, in the Fenerbahçe Turkish, before another return, with the Pomegranate.Neither of them will start tonight, but they could jump in the end in search of the epic. Soldier may record the farewell of Aduriz to the Cup in San Mamés, the sanctuary of his greatest deeds. Aritz blew 39 candles yesterday, his last birthday as a lion. “I’ve been fantasizing about a title for a long time. At the beginning it was a fantasy and I might be closer now. Imagine leaving football this season and winning a title. It’s anyone’s dream. Taking out the barge would be magical,” he said. Monday at a gala Panenka magazine, while throwing him very seriously that it is time for a revolution: “We are tired of seeing the Barça and at Madrid win everything. “last_img read more

Rivers clash! … Westmoreland FA Major League final marred by violence

first_imgThe Captain’s Bakery and Grill/Charley’s JB Rum sponsored Westmoreland FA Major League final between Three Miles River FC, and Roaring River FC played at the Llandilo Sports Complex on Thursday had it all. There were goals, three red cards, two yellow cards and fights between players and spectators that resulted in the cancellation of the trophy presentation. Westmoreland FA boss Everton Tomlinson, has since pleaded to the Westmoreland business community to assist in getting the facility fenced and the playing area secured. “Today (Thursday) began with such a lovely feel for a beautiful final between these two teams, who were clearly passionate about the chance to represent the parish in the Western Confederation Super League,” Tomlinson said. “In the end, indiscipline and the cane piece mentality of some fans turned what was to be a celebration of our football into a nightmare for other spectators and sponsors. This is atrocious!?,” added Tomlinson. Up the point where the fracas broke out first between players, it was an interesting final, with Roaring River looking the team more likely to score, although Three Miles River FC did have their moments in the first half. By the second half, however, the tide had turned and Three Miles River held sway and took the lead in the 49th minute when Chevan Morris scored. Davane Gardner doubled the lead for Three Miles River in the 89th minute of play and all hell then broke loose. Players were issued red cards and the action spilled over into the crowd, as bottles and stones rained on players and fans. “This is one of the darkest days of football in this parish. We pride ourselves on being disciplined in this league but some will have no part of it. Therefore, we will meet as an association to decide what action will be taken against the clubs and their supporters for this debacle,” Tomlinson said. He said the business community have a direct responsibility to help socialise and educate the people of the parish and that their contribution by way of funds in the construction of the facility will be greatly appreciated, while adding to the security of patrons and residents alike. It will cost the Westmoreland FA a further US$40 million to complete the facility inclusive of a perimeter wall. The complex currently houses the association’s office and a multi-purpose court for netball and basketball. Meanwhile, the result lifts Three Miles River FC into the Western Confederation Super League, joining two other Westmoreland Clubs – Sandals Whitehouse FC and Beaches Negril FC.last_img read more

Caricom seems to support unconstitutionality of Guyana’s Govt

first_imgDear Editor,On the side of the Caricom Youth conference currently being held at the Guyana Marriott Hotel, the Secretary General was asked to comment on the no-confidence situation in Guyana. Instead of addressing the real matter of the legal passage of the no-confidence motion on December 21, 2018, and the subsequent reaffirmation of the Speaker to that ruling and motion, the SG instead choose to hide behind the court case, taking the safe way like the Government. He indicated that the democratic process of the court is at work. Mr SG, what about the democratic and constitutional process of the no-confidence motion being passed by a majority decision of Guyana’s Parliament. Why not give credence to this rather than taking the tail end of the court which for all intents and purposes is a delaying tactic to stall the legal and constitutional process of lawful elections in 90 days.This approach is exactly why Caricom, for all wants and purposes has deemed a failure in many ways and list a few:1.      The Caricom Single Market and Economy (CSME) has been a talk-shop for over three decades and is nowhere close to fruition. Similar is the single currency.2.      Free movement of people and skills is still a big hoax.3.      West Indies cricket in crisis and yet, no action by Caricom.4.      Travel in the region even by regional carriers is so expensive, it’s cheaper to go north than some Caricom countries.5.      The CCJ is also a failure – only three or four member states have signed on to CCJ. The SG’s own home country has refused to sign on to the CCJ.Caricom is run by a few elites who are privileged to get a job there and contributes very little to any sensible deliverable. It’s a big social organisation with very little impact on economic issues and solving the region’s problem. If Guyana is to do a tally on the number of monies that go towards supporting the secretariat and the duty-free concessions given to staff, that will be more than enough to give Public Servants a handsome increase.So again, Caricom needs to take an impartial role in Guyana’s political situation and call it for what it is. Don’t skirt behind the issue and say it’s democracy at work.Sincerely,Pauline Wonglast_img read more
