“The boys played very strong in that game, dominating the play and the ball, and generating at least a dozen good scoring chances to effectively none for the other team,” said Dyck. Unfortunately, the team was snakebitten around goal that game, and failed to find the net, leaving the scored tied 0-0 at the end of the game, leading to shoot-outs. Fortunately, they came through in the shoot-out, with Jesse Thurston, Ezra Foy, Josh Yasek and Grayson Hill netting for Nelson, and keeper Bradey Sookero coming up with a couple big saves. This got the team through to the gold medal final, and a rematch with the Spokane Breakers, as they had won the other semi-final. “This didn’t surprise me,” said coach Hill, “I thought they were definitely the strongest of any other team we saw at the tournament.” It was an exciting, tight, hard fought game, which, unfortunately Spokane won, with a late goal, seven minutes from full time. “We suffered a few injuries through the course of the weekend, losing a number of players, and at one point in the final, we had six injured players and only one sub available,” said Dyck. “That took its toll, and by the second half of the final, you could just see our boys start to run out of gas. They played their hearts out though, and Lyle and I couldn’t be prouder of them.” The coaches singled out the play of the midfield of Ezra Foy, Grayson Hill and Jaden Dyck.“ They’ve lead our team all year, and it was the same this weekend, also, as those three were superb, and allowed us to control the games a majority of the time.” Silver was the colour of the day for the Nelson Selects U14 Boys at the Pend Oreille Cup soccer tournament in Sandpoint Idaho this past weekend.“It was a great weekend for the boys, and they played really well throughout the tournament,” said coach Lyle Hill. “This is especially considering it falls right at the end of summer, when the team hasn’t really played for two months and can be a bit rusty. In past years we’ve had some struggles at this event for this reason. But this year, the boys were ready.” The Nelson squad won both of its round robin games, 3-0 against the Coeur d’Alene Sting and 1-0 against the Spokane Breakers, to win their group and earn entry to the semi-finals. Bradey Sookero and Blake Markin Hellekson split the goaltending duties and earned the goose eggs for both games. “As usual, our defense was strong, lead by Jesse Thurston, Jahmal Truth-Verville, Luka Eyre, Jacob Erickson and Aidan Mushumanski,” said coach Kerry Dyck. “Combined with solid goaltending, this has been a strength of ours all year.” Goals in the games were scored by Ernesto Archambault, Milo Baranyai Sheppard and Angus Patterson (with two). In the semi-final, the team was pitted against another Spokane team.
CRUISING West Indies, who were cruising at 147 for three, had lost two quick wickets, including Pope, who laid the foundation by putting on 44 runs for the first wicket with Tevin Imlach. Hetmyer arrived to lead the recovery of an innings which appeared to be wobbling and compiled a 64-run stand with Keacy Carty. Heymyer’s score of 60, his second straight half century, included 7 fours and a six, while Carty picked up two boundaries in his contribution of 22. Hetmyer’s departure threatened to tilt the game towards Bangladesh but when Jyd Goolie joined Springer, the two gathered 30 runs for the fifth wicket to take the score past 175. The run chase was disrupted again when left-arm spinner Saleh Ahmed Shawon, Bangladesh’s chief wicket taker with three for 37, struck twice in four balls to remove Goolie for nine and Paul for four. But Springer weathered the threat by teaming up with Michael Frew to steal singles and twos in a patient stand of 36. Springer, dropped on 15, was unbeaten on 62 with five fours and a six, and scored the winning runs for West Indies when he smashed Mohammad Saifuddin through the covers for four. Earlier, captain Mehedi was forced to rescue his side with a top score of 60 after they had slumped to 88 for four. Mehedi stitched together an 85-run partnership with Mohammed Saifuddin for the sixth wicket, which lifted the homeboys from 113 for five to almost 200. Paul broke the partnership, capturing the wicket of Mehedi and added two lower-order wickets to finish with impressive figures of three for 20 from three overs. DHAKA, Bangladesh (CMC): West Indies will make their second appearance in the Under-19 World Cup final after a stunning three-wicket victory over Bangladesh in the semi-final at Shere Bangla National Stadium yesterday. West Indies, inspired by an all-round performance from man of the match Shamar Springer, silenced more than 10,000 fans at the stadium with a gutsy run chase to overhaul the 227 runs set by Bangladesh who won the toss and elected to field. Keemo Paul destroyed the Bangladesh lower order, grabbing three for 20, including the important scalp of captain Mehedi Hasan Miraz, who led the innings with a half century. Half centuries from Shimron Hetmyer and Springer, under pressure, complemented a positive innings from opener Gidron Pope as the visitors negotiated some anxious moments before romping to victory with eight balls remaining. They will now contest the showpiece championship match against India in Mirpur on Sunday. Pope, who was dropped on 23, started the chase in aggressive fashion, clobbering 14 runs in the first over on his way to 38.

There was an unusual situation during Monday’s Los Osos-Indio girls basketball game, which the Grizzlies won 84-23. Or was it 85-23? Because Los Osos had such a mammoth lead, the game officials ran the clock continuously in the fourth quarter for mercy purposes. It wasn’t a problem until the Grizzlies’ Cierra Warren stepped to the free-throw line and attempted a buzzer-beating foul shot with the clock ticking down in the final seconds. Warren made the shot, but the buzzer sounded and an official appeared to wave off the basket. It was never posted on the scoreboard, but the point was recorded in the team’s stat book. No matter whether it counted, it certainly was a bizarre situation.

There are supposed to be buses coming from Letterkenny, Kildare, Limerick and Athlone,” he said. “Of course it worries me, but it’s got nothing to do with the students’ union or the university.”He added that he had not received any complaints for residents yet.Students began queuing from as early as 10am yesterday to gather at various pubs around Galway city including The Hoel In The Wall bar.

Embed from Getty ImagesAston Villa boss Steve Bruce praised his players for seeing out a victory over Fulham – and then turned his attentions to the local derby with his former club Birmingham.Bruce has picked up seven points from his first three matches in charge, which began with a 1-1 draw at home to Wolves last weekend.Following Tuesday night’s win at Reading, Jonathan Kodjia took advantage of a David Button error to see off the Whites at Villa Park and clinch back to back victories for the first time since April 2015.“I’m delighted for the players because a week ago they were quiet. We’ve just tried to breathe a bit of life back into them,” Bruce said“I think it’s fair to say we can only get better. We’ve got to still improve.“We were better in the second half [against Fulham], we went 10 yards further up the pitch.“Fulham are a good side. They were unbeaten away from home and you can see why. They didn’t really cause us any problems defensively but they keep the ball in deep areas.”Bruce, who managed Birmingham between 2001 and 2007, returns to St. Andrews with Villa next Sunday.“It should be a nice, quiet affair. I’m sure I’m going to be welcomed with open arms!” he joked.“It’s a special occasion in the second city. I don’t think it’s happened for five years.” See also:Fulham lose at Villa after Button error Ads by Revcontent Trending Articles Urologists: Men, Forget the Blue Pill!
