Huskies grind out 6-5 win over Fairview for first of season in home opener

first_img“We just blocked up the middle. We didn’t give them any clean shooting lanes. The boys transfered back and forth between the box and the diamond very well. They played a bit of an umbrella power play at times and the transition between the two was pretty good. When you block the lanes it’s pretty hard to get pucks through.” Alexander explained.Scoring in order for the Huskies were Thomas Webster, Cayle Bell, Jordan Harder, Cayle Bell, Thomas Webster, and Thomas Webster.Assists went to Jordan Harder (2), Cayle Bell (2), Jerome Thorne, Daylen Pearson, Shane Rutherford, and Jarod Lang.Next for the Huskies is a road game on Wednesday in Beaverlodge before returning home to take on the defending NWJHL champions the North Peace Navigators on Saturday at 8 p.m.Advertisement While the opened the scoring in the first period, the opening 20 minutes wasn’t pretty for the Huskies. The team struggled to get shots on goal as they had only three in the frame and break outs from the defensive zone were also a struggle. Fairview dominated the shots on goal at 14-3 in the period but the teams were tied at one at the buzzer.Fort St. John scored early in the second period as Cayle Bell found the back of the net 19 seconds in. The following three minutes however could have been a disaster for Fort St. John. The Huskies allowed three quick goals to fall behind 4-2 but they were not deterred. The Huskies scored two goals in a span of 1:05 to tie the game at four.Fairview again took the lead in the third period but the Huskies responded quickly just as they did in the second period as the game was tied at five 2:46 after the Flyers had taken the lead. Fort St. John would score the winning goal on the power play after some great perimeter passing found its way back to Thomas Webster at the faceoff circle and he had an open net and made no mistake to complete the hat trick.- Advertisement -Head coach Gary Alexander said it was vital for the coaching staff to remain calm when the Huskies faced adversity in the second period as the players take on the personality of the coaches.“The coaching staff has to remain calm and calm them down. Two goals in this league isn’t anything. Teams can score 14 on any given night. If you stay focused and you stay in the game and let them have it, your chances are still there to do it and that’s what happened tonight. We stayed around and lurked in the shadows until we got our chance and it worked out for us.” he stated.The Huskies did a great job on the penalty kill which was key in such a close game. The Flyers went 0-5 with the man advantage and had minimal scoring chances in their opportunities.Advertisementlast_img read more

Arsenal planning sensational triple swoop for France stars

first_img Alexandre Lacazette, Kylian Mbappe, and Thomas Lemar 1 Arsene Wenger is plotting a stunning overhaul of his Arsenal squad with a trio of French stars reportedly on his radar.Having finally penned a new contract to stay on as manager, Wenger is set to be given a sizeable transfer kitty to boost the club’s Premier Leaguie title hopes.And, according to reports, he has identified Alexandre Lacazette, Kylian Mbappe and Thomas Lemar as his main targets.Lacazette has been a long-term target of the Gunners boss having developed into one of the most prolific strikers in Europe at Lyon.The 26-year-old, who netted 37 goals in all competitions last season, will be allowed to leave Lyon this summer if his £60million valuation is met.Arsenal are also said to be working on a sensational deal for Lacazette’s international teammate Mbappe.The 18-year-old has emerged as the most sought-after young player in world football after a stunning breakthrough season with Monaco.Mbappe is also wanted by Real Madrid and would likely command a world-record transfer fee – but that has not put Arsenal off making a move.Arsenal are also reportedly chasing Mbappe’s Monaco teammate Thomas Lemar.The 21-year-old midfielder scored 19 goals last season and is part of the France senior squad.With a host of signings being planned, there are expected to be outgoings at Arsenal.Wenger appears to have accepted that Alexis Sánchez will not sign a new contract and, with just 12 months left on his current deal, the Chilean could be sold this summer.There are also doubts over the futures of Mesut Ozil, Lucas Perez and Olivier Giroud.last_img read more

Sergio Ramos caught on camera angrily lashing out at Real Madrid youngster

first_img Ramos boots the ball at the 21-year-old 4 He wrote: “Although it does not seem, are quite common situations, but no excuse, my reaction should not be that. We always go to full, don’t we, Regui? At the end of the team victory together.”Appearing to not be bothered by the incident, Reguilon replied: “Always with my team and my captain, for the victory tomorrow!” Clearly frustrated, the 32-year-old picked up a nearby ball and volleyed it towards the young left-back – who thankfully watched it whistle past his head.As the handball drill ends, Ramos again kicked a stationary ball at the 21-year-old, although he has since taken to Twitter to apologise for his action. 4 Sergio Ramos has apologised after being caught on camera angrily booting a ball at Real Madrid youngster Sergio Reguilon during training.The Spain skipper appeared to take an accidental elbow to the nose as Los Blancos step up their preparation for their Champions League game against Viktoria Plzen. Ramos (circled) kicks the ball at his younger Real Madrid colleague 4 An over-exuberant Reguilon catches Ramos in the face with an elbow The Real Madrid captain then did the same thing just moments later Ramos has a history of disciplinary problems and is the most booking footballer in Champions League and LaLiga history. He is also the most booked Spanish international in history.In the Champions League Final last May, he was widely criticised for his robust challenge on Liverpool forward Mohamed Salah.However, footage later emerged which appeared to suggest Salah himself was to blame for the dislocated shoulder injury he suffered.Check out the footage below. 4 While playing handball during training today, an over-excited Reguilon caught Sergio Ramos’ nose with a flying shoulder.

first_imgGary McDaid (left) fined for cigarette smuggling and Seamus McLaughlin jailed for 12 years for having lethal mortar bombs shipped from DonegalTHE North’s Police Service is in the dock today over revelations an undercover officer crossed the border into Donegal to follow dissident republican suspects without apparent permission from Gardai.A solicitor has said the covert officer – codenamed Oscar 401 – travalled 800 metres into Donegal from Derry to pursue dissident republican suspects Seamus McLaughlin and Gary McDaid. The cross-border incursion emerged after the officer refused to give evidence against McDaid for possession of the mortars in March 2013 unless a court granted him anonymity.After the order was not granted, the prosecution decided to drop the mortar bomb charges and instead McDaid pleaded guilty to the offence of smuggling cigarettes and was fined £300 on Tuesday in what the judge described as a bizarre and saying it had reached a “novel conclusion”.His solicitor Ciaran Shiels has written to the Departments of Justice and Foreign Affairs in Dublin to raise concerns about the unlawful PSNI incursion.Mr Shiels said today: “Given the nature of the operation in which the police were involved, it seems reasonable to assume that all PSNI officers would have been armed, although none of them refer to it in any of their statements.“I have therefore raised the offices of Justice and Foreign Affairs in Dublin whether any consents were given to allow the PSNI to operate in Donegal at this time.“And if no consents were provided, what the southern authorities intend to do about the matter. It should be investigated.“I await their response,” added Mr Shiels.Oscar 401 – a cipher given by prosecutors to protect his covert cover being blown – was one of a number from the PSNI’s Surveillance Unit deployed in March 2013.It followed an intelligence tip-off from an informant that dissident republicans were moving a bomb-laden Citroen Berlingo van from Donegal into Derry to target a police station.When the van was rammed by covert cops, officers found that a hole had been cut in the roof of the van and four primed mortars were in a state of readiness to be launched on the police station in Derry’s Strand Road.McLaughlin, the driver of the van, was given a 12 year prison sentence last November after pleading guilty to possessing the deadly mortars with intent to endanger life.McDaid, who drove a mortar bike ‘in convoy’ behind the van along the Letterkenny Road from Donegal into Derry, denied any involvement in the planned attack.He maintained that he always believed McLaughlin was smuggling cigarettes across the border.His solicitor says that Irish and British authorities have refused to reveal details of any cross border incursion or security operation, including whether An Garda Siochana or MI5 were involved in assisting in a surveillance operation.The cross border incursion by British police has also been raised with the office of the Police Ombudsman in the North.A spokesman said today: “We are currently considering the case.”It is likely the illegal incursion will be raised in the Dail in the coming weeks by local TDs.CALLS FOR PROBE OVER PSNI INCURSION INTO DONEGAL OVER MORTAR BOMB SUSPECTS was last modified: April 15th, 2015 by John2Share 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:CALLS FOR PROBE OVER PSNI INCURSION INTO DONEGAL OVER MORTAR BOMB SUSPECTSCIARAN SHIELSGardaiGary McDaidMI5PSNISeamus McLaughlinlast_img read more
