By Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsComing from the B.C. Interior, the Kootenay Wildcats log many road miles to compete on the B.C. Female AAA Hockey League circuit.So making another 16-hour trip to northern B.C. was a nightmare the team definitely didn’t want to experience.The Cats all but clinched the fourth and final playoff spot, and the right to host Prince George in the opening playoff round instead of traveling north, during the weekend after Kootenay swept the Cougars by identical 3-2 scores at the NDCC Arena.Kootenay now holds a commanding lead in the BCMHL standings.“It was a great effort by the girls today,” said Kootenay head coach Mario DiBella following Sunday’s nail-biting victory. “They overcame some adversity today to battle back from a 2-0 deficit.”“The (two-game-sweep) was huge for us because we didn’t want to make the 16-hour bus trip to Prince George to play the first playoff round,” DiBella added.Trailing 2-0 after one frame the Cats somehow found a way to penetrate the Cougar defence in the second. Kiana Strand did the damage for Kootenay scoring twice in the period. Hailey McLean snapped the 2-2 tie with a goal midway through the final frame and Kootenay, with Kayla Keraiff standing tall in the Kootenay nets, managed to hold off the pressing Cougars down the stretch.“I thought we came out flat in the first period but definitely our goaltender (Keraiff) stepped up her play in the second and third periods . . . she was outstanding,” DiBella explained. “But I’d like to comment on the play Kiana Strand. She was an incredible asset to our team today. Not only did she score two goals but her effort is always there and she’s a huge leader on this team when it comes to her play on the ice.”Saturday’s game was just as tight as Sunday between these two evenly matched teams.Shea Weighill staked Kootenay to a 2-2 tie after two periods before Holly Nikirk notched the winner in the third.The game was halted when Prince George forward Taya Garneau was removed from the ice on a stretcher after being injury during an on-ice collision.Garneau was taken to Kootenay Lake District Hospital by ambulance with a back injury and concussion. She was later released.Tempers boiled following the hit, leading to a parade to the penalty box.“Both the North and Kootenay are physical teams so there’s lots of contact,” said DiBella. “It’s great the officials are allowing the coincidental contact to occur. But these girls are firey competitors so there is a certain level of angst among the players on the ice.”The Cats are idle until early March when Kootenay hosts Fraser Valley Phantom for a two-game series at the NDCC Arena.KOOTENAY NOTES: Rearguard Amiee DiBella and center Daley Oddy of the Wildcats join former Kootenay star Ella Matteucci as members of Team B.C. that will participate in the Canada Winter Games. The national competition begins Friday in Halifax. The female part of the competition commences the second week of the games. DiBella is from Nelson while Oddy lives in Cranbrook and Matteucci is from Fruitvale.email@example.com
The Uruguayan, therefore, could be new at eleven to the detriment of Savic, a final is a final, and, according to Saul’s words at a press conference, Cholo’s plan against Real Madrid could be in the center of the field. That “will be the battle that can decant the game” and could cause surprises in the eleven rojiblanco as the presence of Llorente, who is strength and muscle and, in addition, made a great game against Barcelona on Thursday, being one of the reasons for the red-and-white comeback against the Catalans. The other two players in doubt of the Atleti, Correa, who received another blow, and Gimenez, falls as a precaution, with some discomfort, they did exercise and made him strong. Oblak’s absence, in principle, should not alarm. On other occasions, when he has had a medical condition, he has managed the training times and then played the matches normally. Atletico exercised in the field of Al-Ahli to prepare the final against Real Madrid tomorrow. And he did it with a notable absence: that of Jan Oblak. The goalkeeper, who was hit by Barça in the semifinal, stayed in the gym doing alternative work. The rojiblancos soccer players did some fut-volleyball before starting the training and, later, an exercise of pass and possession of ball at midfield.

Several students of the University of Guyana on Thursday called on Government to pay attention to the deplorable conditions in which they have to study and learn.They also lambasted the University of Guyana Student Society (UGSS) for not doing enough to lobby for more meaningful infrastructural changes and upgrades to be effected at the Turkeyen Campus.The students contend that since the coalition Government entered office, they have only been promised that the University would be transformed and modernised, with special emphasis being placed on upgrading its edifice and improving the quality of education on offer. “It’s a very sickening situation. The campus buildings need repairs, the classrooms are filthy and not conducive to learning, and most, overcrowded. This situation has to change,” Kamini Persaud, a student of the Faculty of Social Sciences, explained.“We need the administration and Vice Chancellor to place more emphasis on addressing the burning issues that are affecting our stay here. I think that it would take little to nothing out of these big officials to meet with the students to listen to what can be done to make our lives better,” Jermaine Thomas opined.The students have said that while the University has improved its registration process, there is still a lot of confusion when new students attempt to go through the process to become fully registered.“The staff (are) most times rude, petty, and unhelpful. This is another area that I feel like the Vice Chancellor’s attention (should be called to). And maybe the Education Minister can intervene and provide the professionals here with some sort of training and development that would see them treating students and prospective students better,” another student who asked not to be named suggested.The students feel that their elected faculty representatives can do much more to advance these causes, but often become bogged down by their own personal situations and end up frustrated by the non-action by the University on many fronts.“Security is also another issue that I feel strongly they should address. There are a lot of robberies taking place around the Campus, and when you have to leave here late at nights, it does be very scary,” Padma Persaud explained.Students have, for years, been complaining about the deplorable conditions that they have to study in, but only when there are serious protests and lobbying by students is ad hoc work started, and then halted as soon as things return to normalcy.
LBI operations shutdown– operations to close by MayThe Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) plans on completely shutting down the La Bonne Intention (LBI)LBI Estate to be completely closed by the end of MaySugar Estate and merging its existing operations with the Enmore Estate by May 31, 2016.This is according to a brief from the Sugar Corporation to Agriculture Minister Noel Holder on the integration of the East Demerara Estates.Some 125 of the 846 workers attached to LBI Estate are at risk of losing their jobs since the functions they currently carry out are expected to be merged with that of Enmore EstateThe statement explained that the LBI section has 846 employees from which 125 are duplicating functions that are currently being undertaken at Enmore. These include personnel in the Mill Dock, Field Workshop, Field Laboratory, Field Office, and Stores.The breakdown shows that 58 persons work in Mill Dock, 38 in Field Workshop and the remaining 29 is split in the Field Laboratory, Field Office, and Stores.Approximately 721 are working at both the LBI and Enmore sections, primarily in harvesting and crop husbandry areas, therefore it is presumed that these jobs are secured.GuySuCo explained that the number of employees who will be fired will be determined after filling existing vacancies at Enmore Estate; however the Guyana Agriculture and General Workers Union (GAWU) and the National Association of Agricultural, Commercial and Industrial Employees (NAACIE) had expressed concerns that full-time and regular employment will be unavailable.The Sugar Corporation explained to the agriculture minister that the LBI Factory was closed in March 2011 as a part of a plan to integrate the East Demerara Estates into one production entity to optimise the use of the limited pool of labour.The corporation further explained that both estates, at the time, were significantly underutilised as a result of shortage of field labour.It also pointed out that for integration to make sense, the duplicated activities (which were the remaining operations at LBI Estate) would need to be rationalised.GuySuCo said this should have been done since 2011; however because it was not completed, the results were further deterioration in the economics of the East Demerara operations.“The East Demerara Estate’s cost of production increased from US26 to 30 cents per pound prior to the closure of the LBI Factory to US41 cents per pound after the closure, peaking at US54 cents in 2013,” it stated.Consequently, GuySuCo said it behoves the current management to expedite the completion of the integration of the Enmore and LBI Estates to try and prevent sugar production in East Demerara from going out of existence in the near future.The sugar entity also noted that the Mill Dock operation is only necessary where there is a factory and in the case of LBI Estate, its existence is basically useless.“Retaining it for the past 5 years represents keeping approximately 58 persons on the payroll with no productive work to do and transporting canes from the LBI cultivation to the Enmore factory in a more costly manner,” GuySuCo said.Meanwhile, GuySuCo and the two unions are currently in discussion aimed at having the process completed by the end of May, 2016.However, GAWU and NAACIE are completely against this decision and had asserted that GuySuCo had gave its assurance that there would be no closure of any other department after the closure of the factory in 2011.Earlier this year, GuySuCo announced the closure of Wales Estate by yearend and that some of the workers would be deployed to the Uitvlugt Sugar Estate while the others would be redundant.GuySuCo and agriculture ministry are yet to devise a plan for the future of affected sugar workers.Notably, the closures of both estates follow assurances by the government that no estate will be shut down anytime soon.In fact, following the announcement on the closure of Wales Sugar Estate, government promised that no other estate would be shut down.The closures also come on the heels of a multimillion dollar Commission of Inquiry report which advised against the closure of any sugar estate or operation at this time.
0Shares0000Leicester’s Wilfred Ndidi headed the equaliser at Chelsea© AFP Daniel LEAL-OLIVASLONDON, United Kingdom, Aug 18 -Frank Lampard is still waiting for his first win as Chelsea manager after Wilfred Ndidi gave Leicester a 1-1 draw to spoil the Blues legend’s homecoming on Sunday.Thrashed 4-0 at Manchester United last weekend and beaten on penalties by Liverpool in the European Super Cup on Wednesday, Lampard’s side took an early lead through Mason Mount’s first goal for Chelsea. But Ndidi atoned for the costly mistake that led to Mount’s opener as the Nigeria midfielder headed Leicester’s well deserved second half equaliser.Lampard had been given a thunderous reception in his first game as Chelsea manager at Stamford Bridge.Yet the mood was far gloomier by the final whistle after a spluttering display raised the spectre of a potentially difficult season for the returning hero.Lampard, Chelsea’s all-time record goalscorer, managed to avoid being the first Blues boss to lose his first two Premier League games in charge since Gianluca Vialli 21 years ago.But on this evidence there is a lot of work for the 41-year-old to do if he is to emulate his 13-year playing spell at Chelsea, which included three Premier League titles and the club’s first Champions League crown.Greeted by a huge flag with the message ‘Frank Lampard’s blue and white army’ and another reading ‘Welcome home Super Frank’, the former England midfielder emerged from the tunnel to cheers and turned to applaud the crowd as they chanted ‘Super Frankie Lampard’.With his former Chelsea team-mate John Terry in the stands to support his old friend, the Blues nearly gave Lampard a dream start in the first minute when Olivier Giroud chested Cesar Azpilicueta’s pass to Pedro and the Spaniard volleyed into the side-netting.Moments later, Mount threatened when he burst through, but the youngster shot too close to Kasper Schmeichel, who did well to block Christian Pulisic’s attempt from the rebound.Mount, a tenacious attacking midfielder in Lampard’s mold, didn’t need to rue that miss for long.The 20-year-old, who impressed while playing for Lampard on loan at second tier Derby last season, opened his Chelsea account in the seventh minute, with a helping hand from Ndidi.– Clinical finish –When Caglar Soyuncu rolled a pass to Ndidi, he dithered on the ball too long and Mount alertly pressured him into conceding possession before sliding a clinical finish past Schmeichel.It was just reward for a blistering start from Chelsea and Lampard celebrated by punching the air in delight.Mount should have doubled Chelsea’s lead when he headed straight at Schmeichel from Pedro’s cross before N’Golo Kante shot wide from Giroud’s flick.But Chelsea couldn’t keep up that ferocious pace and their dip gave Leicester a lifeline they should have taken when James Maddison miscued his pass after dancing around Blues keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga early in the second half.Giroud had started up front instead of Tammy Abraham, who suffered racial abuse on social media after he missed the decisive penalty in that Super Cup loss in Istanbul.But Lampard responded to Chelsea’s loss of control and Giroud’s lack of impact by introducing Abraham on the hour, the young striker greeted warmly by Blues fans after the midweek taunts.It wasn’t enough to swing the momentum back in Chelsea’s favour and Leicester’s dominance was rewarded in the 67th minute.When Maddison swung over a corner, Ndidi rose above Azpilicueta to plant a powerful header past Kepa.Pulisic had made an underwhelming home debut and the former Borussia Dortmund winger was next to be hauled off by Lampard.Maddison wasted a golden chance when he blasted over from close-range, while Jamie Vardy was just off target after breaching Chelsea’s creaky defence with ease.Chelsea were clinging on and it took a fine save from Kepa to deny Youri Tielemans in the final minutes.0Shares0000(Visited 16 times, 1 visits today)
Belgium v France was never going to be an ordinary friendly with the hosts, undoubtedly, looking to beat their neighbours on home soil.In the end, the clash was a goal frenzy with Premier League stars aplenty contributing to the Red Devils’ 4-3 victory over Les Bleus.Manchester United star Marouane Fellaini got two goals and an assist, Chelsea man Eden Hazard struck home a penalty, while Newcastle’s Moussa Sissoko and Southampton’s Toby Alderweireld also got assists.Olivier Giroud, fresh from an FA Cup final win with Arsenal, got France a debateable penalty and Man United target Radja Nainggolan crashed home a superb strike past Tottenham goalkeeper Hugo Lloris in the thrilling game.You can see all the action above…

Father CarrTHE family of Oisin Crawford are devastated and bewildered following his death, their parish priest said todayFr Dan Carr has been comforting Oisin’s parents and brothers at the family home today ahead of the 22-year-old’s funeral in St Johnston tomorrow.Health authorities and Gardai have issued warnings about a deadly ecstasy tablet which is being sold in Donegal. It’s believed Oisin had taken a number of the pills prior to his death at 4.30am on Monday. “I just couldn’t take it in. As the news spread through the people, they just struggled to accept what happened,” said Father Dan Carr.“Numbness has surrounded everyone. It seems to be drug-related.“The use of drugs are readily available here as they would be in cities.Fr Dan Carr has asked people to “avoid drugs forever”. He went on: “I’ve spoken to the Crawford family and they are absolutely devastated. Oisin worked with his father in a tyre business in Raphoe. The father and mother are just speechless.“Drugs… are such a problem. Avoid drugs forever. Never touch them. They are too dangerous. I hope this is a wake up call.”Oisin’s wake is continuing at the family home at Whitehill, St Johnston. His funeral is tomorrow (Wednesday) to 11am Mass at St Baithin’s Church in St Johnston, with burial in the adjoining cemetery afterwards.Family flowers only please. Family time on the morning of the funeral.Simon Lynch, 22, a friend of Oisin’s, remains very ill at Letterkenny General Hospital.
