Ghostriders double Leafs to remain undefeated

first_imgThe lead stood up until Colton Schell worked a pretty three-way passing play with teammates Gavin Currie and Cameron Dobransky with three minutes remaing in the frame.Fernie, undefeated in six games, dominated the Leafs for most of the game, holding a commanding 32-20 margin in shots and an 18-5 advantage in the first period.The loss snapped a brief two-game winning streak by Nelson, which started the season 0-4. The Leafs opened the weekend with an 8-3 trashing of Grand Forks Friday in the Boundary City thanks to a  four-point performance from Currie and two goals by Schell.The win gave Nelson some payback after the Bruins blasted the Green and White 6-2 earlier this season.After the teams traded goals, a power play marker by Currie put the Leafs ahead for good. Colton Malmsten gave Nelson a 3-1 lead before the period ended.Zachary Thompson beat Marcus Beesley in the Leaf nets to pull the Bruins to within a goal six minutes into the second frame. But Nelson outscored Grand Forks 3-1 in the late stages of the period to take a commanding 6-3 advantage after 40 minutes.Connor McLaughlin and Schell scored in the third to pad the Nelson lead.Dallon Stoddart, Marcus Dahl and Adrian Moyls also scored for the Leafs. Thompson led the Bruins with two goals while Nick Van Damme added the final marker.The Bruins out shot the Leafs 34-30. Rookie Walker Sidoni and Leaf captain Taylor O’Neil were involved in fights for Nelson.The Leafs return to action tonight at 7 p.m. at the NDCC Arena when Fernie Ghostriders pay a visit. The Ghostriders, 5-0 to start the season, dumped Creston Thunder Cats 3-1.BLUELINES: The official word by the KIJHL for suspending head coach Chris Shaw was due to the Leafs using  “non-approved – by Hockey Canada – players.” Twice Shaw used ineligible players and received a one-game suspension for the first offence (the Sept.18th contest against Grand Forks) and a two-game (during the Sept.19th game against Penticton) sit for the second. Assistant coaches Jason Rushton and Sean Dooley handled the coaching duties . . . Nelson was also without the services of defenceman Raymond Reimer. The 6’4”, 205-pound rearguard was suspended for one game for receiving a game misconduct in the final ten minutes of Sunday’s 3-2 Nelson win over Penticton Lakers. Reimer missed Saturday’s game due to family commitments. Forward Cody Abbey and defenceman Tyler Parfeniuk also missed the weekend games due to [email protected] By Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily Sports EditorThomas Abenante scored his second goal of the game on a penalty shot to spark the visiting Fernie Ghostriders to a 4-2 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Leafs Saturday night at the NDCC Arena in Nelson.It was the second game of the weekend Nelson played without head coach Chris Shaw, suspended by the KIJHL for using “non-approved” players. Shaw, watching the game from the NDCC press box, was handed a three-game sit and will miss Nelson’s next game of the season, Wednesday night at home against Spokane.Abenante was awarded the penalty shot when a Leaf defenceman closed his hand on the puck while it was in the air over the goal crease. Abenante calmly skated toward the Leaf goal before snapping a low wrist shot past Marcus Beelsey.Mark Stachan added an insurance goal for the Eddie Mountain leaders.Twice the Leafs rallied from one-goal deficits. Abenante gave the visitors a 1-0 lead at the first intermission break. Fernie dominated the frame, at one point out shooting the Leafs 12-0.Tanner Burns tied the game in the second, scoring on the power play before Mike Weist regained the lead for Fernie with a power play marker.last_img read more

We needed that win: in five months we had only two losses and all of a sudden, in one week we had two losses in a row. We needed that win today to get back on track.”Demons also had a double-header weekend of games, and won out 85-72 over Moycullen on Saturday evening in Galway.Garvey’s Tralee Warriors meanwhile kept their spot at second place on the table secure this weekend, with an 84-72 point win over Pyrobel Killester in the Complex in Tralee. Trae Pemberton shot the lights out for the Kerry side as he netted an impressive 38 points and put in an absolutely stunning performance on both sides of the court and, despite a third quarter run from Killester, Tralee’s early lead in the first half, teamed with a fantastic finishing performance from Kieran Donaghy and Darren O’Sullivan saw them come out on top.Elsewhere, Cup champions Black Amber Templeogue got the better of KUBS while Belfast Star ran out 71-62 point winners over Eanna.In the Women’s Super League, meanwhile, the hugely anticipated clash between Courtyard Liffey Celtics and DCU Mercy certainly lived up to all expectations, with Liffey winning out 61-57 in a cracking game. A nail-biting end to the clash saw brilliant scoring from Devon Brookshire and international underage star Sorcha Tiernan see them home to victory.“That was the third close game we’ve had between the two teams this season,” said Celtics’ coach, Mark Byrne afterwards. “DCU were coming off the back of a great cup win the previous weekend, so it was just a great game for us to come out on top.“Sorcha [Tiernan] is probably one of the best, if not the best, young player in the country right now. She showed great composure today. DCU are known for putting a lot of pressure on people and they pressed us for the whole game, and she shot 15 points so it was an all round great performance from her.”Elsewhere, Ambassador UCC Glanmire took a comfortable win over Portlaoise Panthers, NUIG Mystics fell to Maxol WIT Wildcats 59-71, while Pyrobel Killester secured the win on the road against IT Carlow Basketball.last_img read more

Mauricio Pochettino is a miracle worker and puts Jose Mourinho to shame

first_imgEIGHT days ago, they were calling it the Week from Hell.The three-game run that would finally see Spurs crumble, as their lack of signings finally came home to roost.6 Mauricio Pochettino has helped Spurs defy doubters and injury worries – to leave them with bigger dreams than just a top-four finishCredit: Getty Images – GettyA spell which would see the first cracks in a stretched-to-the-limit squad as Premier League battles with Chelsea and Arsenal sandwiched a must-win Champions League game with Inter Milan.Instead, they go into today’s North London derby with two wins in the bag already, spirits and confidence rarely higher and dreams starting to stretch simply beyond the top four.It would have been a stunning start under normal circumstances.Under the circumstances Mauricio Pochettino has had to contend with, it is truly remarkable.6 Tottenham chief Mauricio Pochettino goes head to head with Unai Emery after his rivals impressive start as Arsenal chief this seasonCredit: Getty Images – GettyArsenal vs Tottenham: Kick-off time, TV channel, live stream and team news ahead of the first North London Derby of 2018/19That lack of signings, having nine senior stars involved for the duration of the World Cup and eight various injuries so far as a consequence.Problems on and off the field for keeper Hugo Lloris and, of course, that ongoing stadium issue . . . put all that together and Pochettino is more miracle worker than manager.And throughout it all the Argentine has handled himself with a dignity to put many of his peers to shame.Yes, Jose, that most definitely does include you.6 Keeper Hugo Lloris has had problems on and off the pitch but Spurs keep thrivingCredit: Getty – ContributorThere have been no tantrums at how he has been let down by those above him, for all he would be well justified.Even when he has had a little gripe — like how the recruitment policy affected his selection policy ahead of the Inter game — it has been done quietly.Even then it was “It’s in the club’s hands, not only in mine, we share the responsibility.”Even then he didn’t publicly take a pop at chairman Daniel Levy.6 Daniel Levy has escaped public criticism from Spurs chief Mauricio PochettinoCredit: ReutersA far cry from one ex-Tottenham chief’s throw-Levy-under-the-bus condemnation a few years back when he didn’t get the players he wanted.In January 2012, Harry Redknapp told the world he wanted Carlos Tevez and Gary Cahill but had to settle for Ryan Nelsen and Louis Saha. Five months later he was sacked.There’s no danger of Levy taking aim at Poch. He should be giving him a medal for all he’s done and the fact he will never have a more loyal manager.Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino grateful to Arsenal boss Unai Emery for recommending him to Valencia previously Two hallmarks of a top boss are whether he improves players and whether they enjoy playing for him.On both counts the answer with Pochettino is a resounding yes.The likes of Moussa Sissoko and Juan Foyth prove the former — and virtually the whole squad the latter.Bookies rarely form a market on who will be Manager of the Year but if they did, Pep Guardiola would be hot favourite.Unai Emery and Maurizio Sarri would be up there after their great starts, while Jurgen Klopp’s Prem run — despite his European flop — would also put him in the reckoning.most read in footballBRO MESSAGEBobby Charlton’s touching tribute to Jack revealed as he misses funeral serviceFRESH OUTFITMicah Richards pokes fun at Roy Keane backstage at Sky Sports studiosFALL OF TROYDeeney calls Sky reporter ‘cheeky b******’ after he asks about retirementSHOTS FIREDDenis Irwin’s son trolls Liverpool fans with savage Steven Gerrard tweetPicturedC’MON THE LADSRamos’ becomes dad again as wife gives birth to FOURTH son Maximo AdrianoVideoROY MEANKeane says ‘that’s why they never win anything’ as Villa celebrate staying upYet all of them are either working with already assembled all-star casts, or been given crazy money to recruit top-level players.Poch has had none of that.You could argue he’s not even really had a fair slice of luck.It’s why he is the outstanding candidate as the Premier League’s Manager of the Year approaching the halfway stage.And it’s why Levy must pray he doesn’t finally get sick of all the problems, should the likes of Manchester United come calling next summer.Premier League matchweek 14 preview including Arsenal v Tottenham and Liverpool v EvertonKLOPP IS MYTH-ING THE BOATTHREE away games, no points, five shots on target and one goal from open play.The stats of a side in a relegation fight, stuck in a rut, with confidence at rock bottom?Well, you would think so but this is Liverpool on the road in their Champions League group.Wednesday’s defeat at Paris Saint-Germain has them needing to beat Napoli 1-0, or by two clear goals, or last term’s runners-up are out.They may be unbeaten in the Prem — and are the likeliest to be second to Manchester City come May — but Europe has been a calamity.6 Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp should be under pressure than he seems after three Champions League away lossesCredit: PA:Empics SportJurgen Klopp was right in pointing out PSG’s embarrassing play-acting, especially that from show-pony Neymar.But it wasn’t why they lost. More relevant might be his odd decision to split the central defensive axis of Joe Gomez and Virgil van Dijk.It might be why the midfield held off, rather than pressing high and creating chance after chance like last year.Klopp has done much good in his three years, but Liverpool were hardly dull under Brendan Rodgers, who went closer than anyone to end a title wait that is now more than a quarter of a century.The questions are no more than a whisper at the moment but another trophy-less season and those who reckon he’s more myth than hit may have a point after all.Jose Mourinho smashes water bottles on the sidelines as Manchester United score injury time goal against Young Boys in the Champions LeagueRASH TO BLAST JOSE OVER MARCUS MISSFEBRUARY: Raheem Sterling misses a sitter against Burnley. Pep Guardiola subs him minutes later.SEPTEMBER: Jurgen Klopp berates Xherdan Shaqiri in front of the Anfield fans for not taking a late free-kick in a League Cup defeat to Chelsea.NOVEMBER: Jose Mourinho spreads his arms and rolls his eyes as Marcus Rashford misses a sitter against Young Boys.6 Jose Mourinho should not be criticised for his gesture after a bad miss from Marcus RashfordCredit: AFP or licensorsThe difference? Guardiola and Klopp copped no more than the gentlest of flak while Mourinho had ex-players and amateur psychologists putting the boot in.If Jose had sat down, he would have been slated for not caring enough.His crate-throwing reaction was cringeworthy. His reaction to Rashford’s miss most definitely was not.Jose Mourinho says best keeper in the world David de Gea wants to stay at Manchester UnitedGEA CHANGE NOT ALWAYS NEEDEDMINUTES after David De Gea made an astonishing Champions League save on Tuesday, Liverpool’s keyboard warrior fans went into action.Mocking his unsigned contract offer at Man Utd, they asked, ‘If you’re this good you’re not going to stay at a bad team, are you?’.Just like Steven Gerrard did for all those years, you mean?last_img read more
