Kinsmen Atom Flyers use big comeback to come away with atom A tier one banner

first_imgThe Fort St. John Kinsmen Atom Flyers squared off against Chetwynd for two games over the weekend to determine the atom tier one champion. The series was based on aggregate and while things may have looked bleak following an 8-3 loss in game one the Flyers eliminated the five goal deficit in game two with a 10-4 win which gave them the banner.Assistant coach Sheldon Gibb said the Flyers put in their best effort of the season and they needed it especially after Chetwynd built on their aggregate lead as they held a 3-1 advantage at one point in the second game.“The game that the boys and girls brought was definitely the best that they’ve played all year and they never gave up,” he said. “We were down 3-1 and they had some tenacity and found a way to put the puck in the net shift after shift. We rolled three lines and four D the whole game and came out on top.”- Advertisement -Entering the third period the Flyers still had a big mountain to climb. They had battled back to take a 6-4 lead, but still needed another four goals in the final 20 minutes to come away with a win.“It was a positive mood,” Gibb said referring to the team’s state heading into the last stanza. “You could just feel it. They knew they could do it. 30 seconds in we hit the cross bar and about a minute later we scored our first of four. When there was about five minutes left we needed to score one more. We killed a five on three penalty and right after we killed that penalty we went and scored again.”The victory concluded the season for the team as there are no provincials to follow.Advertisementlast_img read more

first_imgDonegal County Council is to explore options to reinstate a crossing at the Mulantiboyle Bridge in Glenties which collapsed more than three years ago.Cllr Marie Therese GallagherThe costings for the bridge if more than €600,000.Cllr Marie Therese Gallagher has welcomed plans to explore EU funding options to re-instate the bridge. Cllr Gallagher said “The estimated costs to re-instate this bridge is over €600,000, this seems to be to be an astronomical amount of money for a project of this size.“I have asked the council to investigate alternative sources of funding to have this bridge re-instated, and I have received a commitment from Council that all avenues will be investigated, in the meantime I have asked that a costing be done to instate a bailey bridge, like what has been installed on the Fintown-Glenfin road.“I have been assured that this will be done, and am hopeful that this measure if accepted by Council will allow access through this route for the people of Glenties.”She added that it is unacceptable that this bridge has been down for over three years, and a solution has to be found to this situation without delay.  A BRIDGE TOO FAR FOR GLENTIES was last modified: November 27th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Cllr Marie Therese GallagherGlentiesMulintaboyle Bridgelast_img read more

Beckenbauer had three. Aged 20, he stood out in the 1966 West German team; playing in midfield, he scored five times to finish tied third top-scorer as his side were runners-up. ‘Der Kaiser’ helped Germany beat England 3-2 in 1970 with a long-range rocket shot. Later, he played on with his dislocated arm in a sling (both German substitutions having been made) in the semi-final, as Germany bowed out 4-3 to Italy in probably the greatest World Cup match of all time. That third place in 1970 was to be his worst World Cup finish. 3 3center_img Beckenbauer went toe to toe with Johan Cruyff in the 1974 World Cup final… and came out on top Beckenbauer guided West Germany to the 1990 World Cup as manager talkSPORT is your home of the 2018 World Cup.

A passionate plea for Rodgers to be included on FIFA award shortlist

first_img“Brendan Rodgers was rewriting history!” Jim White explains why #CelticFC boss Brendan Rodgers deserved to be nominated for the Best FIFA Men’s Coach 2018 award 🍀🏆[📻 @JimWhite on talkSPORT] pic.twitter.com/IF9LZH5U1a— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) July 25, 2018In addition to Cherchesov, the other managers in the running are Massimiliano Allegri (Juventus), Zlatko Dalic (Croatia), Didier Deschamps (France), Pep Guardiola (Manchester City), Roberto Martinez (Belgium), Diego Simeone (Atletico Madrid), Gareth Southgate (England), Ernesto Valverde (Barcelona) and Zinedine Zidane (Real Madrid).Listen to Jim White on talkSPORT every weekday at 10am here. 1 When FIFA released the Coach of the Year shortlist for their ‘Best’ football awards, Jim White was gobsmacked.The talkSPORT host couldn’t understand why Brendan Rodgers was ignored, but there was room for Russia boss Stanislav Cherchesov. Brendan Rodgers should be on FIFA’s shortlist, says Jim White Last season Rodgers guided Celtic to an unprecedented second successive treble and also oversaw an incredible 69-game unbeaten domestic run.Cherchesov, though, guided unfancied Russia to the World Cup quarter-finals when the team was widely written off before the tournament began as one of the nation’s worst in recent history.Among their victims were Spain before losing to Croatia on penalties in the last eight.“Cherchesov. Get him off the list and the name, Brendan Rodgers,” Jim White explained to the talkSPORT listeners.“Rodgers became the first manager in the club’s history to win his first four domestic trophies. On April 29, 2018, Rodgers secured his second – Celtic’s seventh – consecutive league title with a 5-0 win against Rangers at Celtic Park; this win extended their unbeaten run against Rangers to 12.“But the season ended with Rodgers winning the first ever double treble. A treble in two consecutive seasons, which was the first ever in Scottish football history. He was rewriting history here.“And you’re telling me that this guy Cherchesov should be on it and Brendan Rodgers shouldn’t?”last_img read more

Seven running for Pico Water Board

Incumbents Andy Gonzalez, Antonio “Tony” Martinez and Sal Orozco are running against challengers Jesus Barreras and Henrietta Salazar for seats on the water district board. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Briones was appointed to the water board after Fred Silva’s death about seven months ago. Silva’s term would have expired in November 2007. The three incumbents running believe their experience on the board and focus on future projects, such as replacing aging pipelines in the district and increasing security at the wells, should earn them additional four-year terms on the board. “My priority has been to build up reserves to keep the district away from borrowing when we have to deal with such pending projects as replacing meters that are aging out and the aging of pipelines,” said Martinez. “I will continue to focus on these reserves to make sure the district does not go into debt.” Orozco believes his time on the board has resulted in more projects getting done. Then there is the two-year unexpired term in which appointed incumbent Richard Brionesis running against challenger Juan Fred Silva Jr., the son of late director Fred Silva. “It was a really divided board when I started. We couldn’t get personal issues out of the board room and water issues in,” he said. “I worked to make it a more cohesive board so we could focus on projects like installing no-flush toilets in the school district. “We’ve also addressed the issue of working on the pipelines and will continue to work on them in the future.” Gonzalez believes his experience on the board should stand for itself. “I have eight years of experience and I’ve gone to school to learn what the water district is about,” he said. “I don’t think the public should throw away eight years of experience for a neophyte. “I have the best intentions to finish projects and continue bringing this district into the 21st century.” Barreras says voters should consider him at election time because he can speed up district projects. “My experience and knowledge of the water industry is the main reason people should vote for me because we have to move faster on projects,” he said. “Right now there seems to be a lot of indecision on the part of the board on how projects should move forward. “Things just get discussed forever.” Salazar believes projects are being done when the money comes available. Her goal is to bring positive change to the board. “After going to Pico Water meetings for 12 years I know what is going on there now and what took place before,” she said. “A lot of people who serve on the board end up running for the City Council. My focus will be on Pico Water.” If he is elected, Briones will continue to focus on making sure district wells are secured under the Homeland Security Plan. “It’s a very high possibility one day we could have an earthquake here or a 100-year flood,” he said. “With six wells in operation serving 5,200 residents we have to have preventive measures in place.” Silva did not return several phone calls seeking comment. — Debbie Pfeiffer Trunnell can be reached at (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028, or by e-mail at debbie.pfeiffer@sgvn.com.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

DONEGAL FOOTBALLERS GET BEHIND ROAD SAFETY MESSAGE

first_imgWITH thousands of fans heading for Clones and Lisnaskea this Sunday to watch the minors, seniors and senior ladies play Ulster Championship semi-finals, Donegal’s players have helped launch a safer driving campaign.The County Health & Wellbeing Committee of CLG Dhún na nGall and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group have launched a campaign to encourage all road users to change their behavior and make these changes part of their lives in the future, which will save lives and reduce serious injuries on our roads.The message is simple – make smart choices about how you use the roads, never ever drink or drug drive, strictly keep to the speed limits and reduce your speed, make sure you and your passengers are wearing seatbelts before you set off on a journey, no matter how short and never use your mobile phone for any purpose while driving. The campaign asks motorists and passengers to make a personal commitment to drive responsibly and a special appeal is being made to all Donegal supporters traveling to this Sunday’s Ulster semi-final in Clones against Antrim and any subsequent games to drive with care.On the road as on the pitch you need to be alert. The campaign is fully backed by Donegal GAA and Donegal Road Safety Working Group with Donegal Senior Team Player, Ryan Mc Hugh as its Ambassador.Footballers and management will be encouraging people to make their pledge to decide every time they sit in a vehicle before they turn the key, that they will make smart choices about how they use the roads. The hope is that everyone takes note and thinks road safety when using the roads.This Road Safety campaign for the football season is being co-ordinated by Brian O’Donnell, Road Safety Officer, Donegal County Council and Sean Dunnion, County Chairman, Donegal GAA as part of their road safety education and casualty reduction strategy. “This is another opportunity to remind football fans about their road safety responsibilities Fans should ensure the enjoyment of the game isn’t followed by tragedy on the roads,” said Brian O’Donnell.“Individuals and organisations should follow their football team’s example and make a commitment to support this campaign and ask all their family members to adhere to the rules of the road at all times and lead by example. It is also important to factor in a rest break on your journey from Donegal to the game.”Sean Dunnion, County Chairman said: “The new County Health & Wellbeing Committee formed earlier this year immediately identified that Road Safety should be a focus area for their plan for 2014 so we are delighted now to partner with the Donegal Road Safety Working Group in delivering a campaign for our members and supporters as they travel to venues across Ulster and indeed hopefully outside the province later in the season as they support the Donegal Minor and Senior football teams.”Ryan Mc Hugh said: “It was a great honour for him to be selected as the Donegal GAA Road Safety Ambassador and looked forward to working with both the County Health & Wellbeing Committee and the Donegal Road Safety Working Group in promoting a safe driving culture for both young and older drivers.”He also appealed to everybody, both drivers and passengers, to heed the many safe driving messages that will be delivered particularly over social media channels in the coming months.
