first_imgFORT ST. JOHN, B.C. — Rick Cleaver lived up to his nomination as the NPHL’s MVP during the regular season last night, in what ended up being the Dawson Creek Senior Canucks’ final game of the season.Things got off to a bit of a quiet start in the first period with only two penalties assessed, both of them to the Sr. Canucks. Cleaver didn’t need the an advantage to put Fort St. John up 1-0 just past the seven minute mark, assisted by Adam Horst and Dan Pappin.An early Flyers Interference penalty helped Dawson Creek tie it up just a minute and a half into the second frame, but Cleaver scored two minutes later to once again give the Flyers a one goal lead after getting a pass from Robbie Sidhu. Four minutes after that, Adam Horst made it 3-1 on a feed from Marshall Sidwell and Daylen Pearson.

Millions sought to build ‘surf reef’ in Ventura County

first_imgVENTURA – Californians have created plenty of surf spots by accident with harbor jetties, power plant outflows and even drainage pipes. Creating one on purpose is proving more difficult. In Ventura County, engineers want to build the nation’s first successful artificial “surf reef” at a site known as Oil Piers, an accidentally created surfing hotspot that disappeared when a pier was demolished in 1998. Surfers hope the project will revive the waves at what had been one of the most reliable surf spots on a strikingly picturesque stretch of the Southern California coast. Organizers hope Congress will pave the way for the project next year by passing the Water Resources Development Act, which would allow the corps to undertake work on the nation’s coastlines, rivers and harbors. The coalition is seeking funding through a federal appropriations bill for innovative beach protection projects. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! Environmentalists add that the reef is needed to stop massive erosion that’s eating away at the beach. “It was the only place that, when the wind really, really blew, you could still surf,” recalled Gary Ross, who heads Stanley’s Reef Foundation, a nonprofit group pushing for the project. “Besides that, it was kind of a cool spot – a little bit of a bohemian spot with a young group of surfers,” he said. The $4 million project is being proposed by a coalition that calls itself BEACON, or Beach Erosion and Clean Ocean Nourishment, a joint-powers agency comprised of Santa Barbara and Ventura city and county officials. Under the plan, the Army Corps of Engineers would use 700,000 pounds of synthetic tubes filled with water and sand to build a submerged reef at just the right angle to create surfable waves. It would be 50 feet wide and 140 feet long. last_img read more

Arsenal line-up v Besiktas: Gunners to go for it in Champions League?

first_imgArsenal fans, what do you think of this line-up? Let us know below… 1 It’s that time again. With the domestic season barely under way Arsenal are forced to face the Champions League playoffs once more, and while probably not the toughest possible opponents out of the teams the English side could have drawn, Besiktas are no pushovers. The Gunners can’t take anything for granted therefore, so with Champions League football at stake, talkSPORT takes a look at how they are likely to line up…Tough test for ChambersArsene Wenger has surprised observers by using Calum Chambers at centre back, despite the former Southampton man previously playing at full back for the majority of his senior career. So far the 19-year-old has came through the new challenge with flying colours, but the Champions League is a further step up and should give a real measure of his composure in the middle. Fitness concerns surrounding Laurent Koscielny means Per Mertesacker may be forced to return to action early, should the Frenchman prove unable to play.Attacking midfield threeThough Arsenal struggled to excite in their Premier League opener against Crystal Palace it wasn’t due to a lack of attacking intent. Arsene Wenger opted for an extremely attack-minded midfield three against Palace, so it will be intriguing to see if he goes for more of the same against Besiktas. Should the Gunners boss look for a more conservative approach, Jack Wilshere could be dropped in favour of Mathieu Flamini, who would add more defensive solidity alongside Mikel Arteta.An upgrade on Sanogo?Yaya Sanogo’s injury issues mean Olivier Giroud will probably occupy the middle of Arsenal’s front three tonight, and the Frenchman won’t have to do much to prove an upgrade, considering his team mate’s lacklustre showing last weekend. Alexis Sanchez is a certainty to keep his place in the team, while Santi Cazorla’s ability to drop back and provide more control in the middle of the pitch will be an asset in a tough away trip. Alexis Sanchez is likely to start for Arsenal against Besiktas 1last_img read more

Liverpool title win will not heal Gerrard’s ‘wound’

first_imgLiverpool currently trail Manchester City by one point at the top of the table with nine games remaining.“This wound has been open since my experience. I’m not sure it’ll close because I can’t change that experience,” Gerrard, who left Liverpool after 17 years as a player in 2015, told reporters.“It doesn’t affect how I feel now. I look at a squad of players, some of whom I’m still friends with.“I see a support that gave me absolutely everything from the terraces and around the world.“I just hope for their sake, and mine as a supporter, that come the end of the competition they are victorious. But it won’t make me or my wound feel any different.”Klopp’s side have been accused of letting the pressure get to them in recent weeks, having blown the chance to open up a seven-point lead over City just over a month ago by drawing at home to Leicester and have since been held on the road by West Ham, Manchester United and Everton.“My advice, having been a player in that team and playing for those supporters for so long, would be don’t overthink it. Just enjoy it. Believe in yourselves,” added Gerrard.“I think it is only normal for the supporters. They want it more than anyone. They will help. The players have to see it as a help rather than a hindrance.“When we were in that situation, I didn’t feel suffocated from the fans. I actually felt they were right behind us and with us and wanted it so much. I saw it as a help rather than a hindrance.”The 18-time English champions could easily set a club record points tally and still fall short of a relentless City side, that romped to the league with 100 points last season.And Gerrard insists should that be the case, Liverpool’s season should not be seen as a failure.“Certain people will see it as failure but that is football and opinions. Jurgen has taken the squad forward giant strides. He’s doing everything he can,” he added.“Sometimes in football, if someone beats you to it, you have to hold your hands up and say the better team won.“I hope that’s not the case but I don’t think you can be too critical if you have been fantastic yourself and have done ever so well to be in it in the first place.”0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Liverpool legend Steven Gerrard failed to win the Premier League as a player © AFP / OLI SCARFFLONDON, United Kingdom, Mar 8 – As a Liverpool captain, Steven Gerrard won almost every trophy bar the Premier League and despite urging Jurgen Klopp’s men to end the club’s 29-year wait for the title this season he admits it will not ease his personal pain.Gerrard, now manager of Scottish giants Rangers, famously slipped to hand Chelsea the opener of a 2-0 win at Anfield in April 2014 with Liverpool on course to win the league.last_img read more

FAN PICKS UP HOTEL BILL FOR DONEGAL TEAM AFTER COUNTY BOARD SAID IT ‘COULDN’T AFFORD IT’

first_imgAn English-based Donegal fan picked up the tab for an overnight stay by the Donegal squad and management in the Slieve Russell Hotel on Saturday night –  after the county board said it couldn’t afford to do so.Donegal chairman PJ McGowan confirmed today that an ex-pat had paid for the pre-match accommodation but insisted that it had not caused a rift between the board and team management.Donegal’s team management had asked to stay at the Slieve Russell Hotel in Ballyconnell, Co Cavan, for the semi-final because players had complained of fatigue when they had travelled to Kingspan Breffni Park to play Cavan in their previous match. The request for that initial stay in the luxury 5-star hotel was granted by the board, but when it was made again prior to the Ulster final clash with Derry the Board said ‘no’.“Financially we just wouldn’t be able to meet the request, but at that point someone else stepped in,” Mr McGowan tells today’s Irish Independent. “There is no rift, there is nothing like that over it. Everyone is just happy that we are Ulster champions after 19 years again.“We were happy to fund the initial stay in the Slieve Russell, which is a qualityhotel, and were happy to give this team as much as we can so that no stone is unturned.” FAN PICKS UP HOTEL BILL FOR DONEGAL TEAM AFTER COUNTY BOARD SAID IT ‘COULDN’T AFFORD IT’ was last modified: July 19th, 2011 by gregShare 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:donegalDonegal GAASLIEVE RUSSELL HOTELlast_img read more
