Branford notches 11 goals as Pepsi Hikers rack up huge victory

first_imgTUESDAY evening’s matches of the 2019 Noble House Goals Galore Indoor Hockey Championships presented the first showing of the mighty PEPSI Hikers, who amassed the highest total of goals for a single match with 21 to signal a real threat to their opposition. Apart from Hikers; GCC and Saints also had productive evenings in both male and female competitions being played at Cliff Anderson Sports Hall.The PEPSI Hikers, boasting a plethora of senior national players, seemed to be in cruise control as they crafted goal after goal against the junior YMCA OFHC Champs. With the Champs beginning on a 12-goal handicap, Hikers pulled within two by the half and then continued their dominance in the second half en route to a victory of 21 goals to 12.Prolific striker Aroydy Branford was the standout of the match in terms of goals as his total of 11 in a single game is unmatched for the tournament so far.A fit and fast YMCA OFHC Top Form indeed seemed to be in top form, as they took on the seasoned Hikers Generals. With Top Form beginning on a 5-goal handicap to the Generals’ 9, they first needed to make up a four-goal deficit to draw even. Top Form earned in just the second minute of play a penalty corner, which was converted with much aplomb by marksman Omar Hopkinson in what seemed like the beginning of a long and difficult match for the Generals. The seasoned Generals, however, led by former national Devin Munroe, stemmed the tide and held Top Form scoreless for the rest of the half.  The second half of play seemed a carbon copy of the first, as Hopkinson slammed home a second penalty corner goal two minutes after resumption but was unable to produce any further goals for the match. The final outcome saw Generals stroll off with a 9-7 victory.GCC Vintage chalked up their second win of the competition by defeating the YMCA OFHC Pacesetters by 15-13.  While Vintage enjoyed a five-goal handicap, they still needed six goals just to draw even with Pacesetters who had a handicap of eleven goals.Veterans Dwayne Scott and Alan Fernandes led the charge for Vintage who made up the deficit before the end of the first half and cruised to victory in the second.The ladies’ competition saw two close matches. The unbeaten GBTI GCC Spice with zero handicap faced Bingo Spartans with a five-goal handicap. From the opening whistle, the Tigers applied pressure on their junior opponents and Dacia Woodroffe’s opening penalty corner goal in the fifth minute signalled their intention to win.Skilful striker Gabriella Xavier added a second for Tigers four minutes later, moving the score to 2-5 still in favour of the defensive Spartans.  A surprise overlapping run, however, from left back Makeda Harding saw her pounce on a rebound and score against the run of play for the Spartans.  Macaela Harding, opponent and sister of Makeda, not to be outdone, nudged the GBTI ladies one step further with her field goal two minutes before lemon-time.The second half saw some good counterattacks from Spartans but Tigers dominated the scoresheet with three more goals – a Xavier double and a single from Woodroffe. The highly contested match between the two undefeated sides saw their unbeaten records remain intact as the final score read 6-6.The Saints ladies, with a five-goal handicap, took to the court for the first time in the other female matchup of the evening against the YMCA OFHC Bellatrix with a nine-goal handicap.  Captain and national striker Tekeisha Deleon led from the front for Saints scoring a helmet-trick (four goals) for her side while young speedster Chrlia Webb added a single.The five unanswered goals, the last of which came in the final minute, saw Saints edge the Bellatrix by 10-9.last_img read more

Yahoo Fantasy Football Week 14: NFL DFS picks, lineup advice for cash games

first_imgMORE WEEK 14 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderFLEX Josh Adams, Eagles @ Cowboys ($18). For the second-straight week, Adams had 20-plus carries and 80 yards on the ground. While he couldn’t notch a TD, Adams appears to be the clear-cut lead back in the Eagles backfield rotation. The Cowboys have been very good against RBs in recent weeks, which explains Adams’ low price. That said, in a cash game lineup, Adams has volume upside and TD upside, so that should make him a quality start even against a tougher defense.DEF New York Giants @ Redskins ($10). The Giants defense is a terrific value. They are the lowest-priced defense on the slate, but they will be taking on a Mark Sanchez-led Redskins squad. The Sanchize is bound to make some mistakes and turn the ball over, so the Giants can be trusted as a bargain-bin value on defense. Last week, our Yahoo cash lineup fared pretty well. We correctly predicted the Courtland Sutton breakout game and also benefited from spending up to get Christian McCaffrey in our lineup. Additionally, our Philip Rivers/Keenan Allen stack was a huge win, as the duo was able to put up a ton of yardage and connected for a score. For our Week 14 Yahoo NFL DFS lineup, we’re sticking to the same strategy that worked for us last week.Once again, we’re relying on a Chargers stack at QB/WR. In fact, it’s the same one we had success with last week. We’re paying up for the high-floor QB, but there is plenty of value on the loaded slate, and by spending down for one of the cheapest defenses, we were in great position to spread our money around and land quality playmakers at the skill positions. That should give us a chance to perform well again and find some success in NFL DFS Week 14. Week 14 Rankings:Quarterback | Running Back | Wide Receiver | Tight End | D/ST  | KickerWeek 14 Yahoo Fantasy Football: NFL DFS picks for cash gamesQB Philip Rivers, Chargers @ Bengals ($39). For the second consecutive week, I’m going with Rivers as my QB. Rivers has a great matchup against a struggling Bengals defense that has allowed the most fantasy points to QBs this season. Rivers has multiple TDs in every game, so he is a high-floor, high-ceiling guy in a great matchup. He’s only the third-most expensive QB on the slate, so that’s a solid value in this circumstance.RB Phillip Lindsay, Broncos @ 49ers ($30). Lindsay has been on a tear in recent weeks. He has five TDs in his past three games, and he should continue to take advantage of favorable matchups down the stretch. The 49ers haven’t been bad against the run this year, but they have allowed four double-digit scorers to the position in their past three games. Lindsay should continue to stay hot, especially if the Broncos get up early and run the ball a lot late in the game.​WEEK 14 DFS CASH LINEUPS: FanDuel | DraftKingsRB Tarik Cohen, Bears vs. Rams ($20). In recent weeks, the Rams have been surprisingly bad against RBs. Prior to facing the Lions duo of LeGarrette Blount and Theo Riddick last week, they had allowed five 14-plus point scorers in their previous four games. Cohen has been doing a ton of damage as a receiver in recent weeks, and if he continues to get touches, he could perform as a top back in this game. At $20, we like him as a low-budget boom candidate.WR Keenan Allen, Chargers vs. Bengals ($28). Stacking Allen with Rivers is bound to pay off again. Last week, I had the duo stacked, and Allen caught 14 passes for 148 yards and a score. He has scored in four-straight games, so it’s easy to trust him as a top option this week, as the Bengals have struggled against top receivers all year long.WR D.J. Moore, Panthers @ Browns ($19). In three consecutive weeks, Moore has seen eight or more targets. He only had 44 yards in a favorable matchup against the Bucs last week, but he should have a chance to perform better if he keeps getting touches. Against the Browns at less than $20, Moore is a good value pick, and the safe floor (regarding targets) should be there for him.WEEK 14 DFS GPP LINEUPS: Yahoo | FanDuel | DraftKingsWR Antonio Callaway, Browns vs. Panthers ($17). Callaway has come on in recent weeks for the Browns, and he has seven catches for 146 yards and a TD in the past two weeks. He should have had another TD against the Texans, but he fumbled it away at the last second. The Panthers have given up a double-digit fantasy receiver every week since Week 9, so Callaway should have a chance to exploit the ninth-worst fantasy defense against WRs.TE Jared Cook, Raiders vs. Steelers ($19). Cook has scored in each of the last three weeks and gets to take on a Steelers defense that has had some issues against TEs this year. They recently allowed Matt LaCosse to perform at a solid level, so Cook should have a great chance to continue his scoring streak.last_img read more

Wade can only watch as DeJuan Blair, Spurs beat Heat

first_imgMAKING AN IMPACT—Spurs’ rookie Dejuan Blair shoots as Miami’s Anthony Tolliver, (35) and Shavlik Randolph, (42) defend during preseason basketball action in Miami, Oct. 11. MIAMI (AP)—San Antonio coach Gregg Popovich quickly pointed out that former Pitt and Schenley star DeJuan Blair only had one defensive rebound Sunday night.“Not good enough,” Popovich said, barely keeping a straight face. So far, Blair is showing the Spurs—and probably the rest of the NBA—that he’s certainly good enough. The rookie scored 28 points on 11 of 13 shooting, 15 of those points coming in the final 7 minutes, and the Spurs erased an 11-point deficit entering the fourth quarter to beat the Miami Heat 95-93 in a preseason game. “He’s a real mobile, agile player, even though he’s got the girth that he has,” Popovich said of the 6-foot-7, 265-pound Blair, who’s noticeably slimmer than he was playing college ball at Pittsburgh. “It’s a heck of a gift.”The Heat were without several regulars, including reigning NBA scoring champion Dwyane Wade.Blair’s steal and layup with 3 minutes left helped the Spurs take control, and further illustrated why he’s looked like the steal of the NBA draft so far in preseason. The 37th overall pick last June had 16 points and 19 rebounds in San Antonio’s only other preseason game so far.“It’s just hard work and my teammates trusting in me and just trying to adjust to the system,” Blair said. “I’m not showing it, but it’s problems for me. Adjusting to the system is kind of hard, but I’m getting it.”As Blair got dressed after the game, guard Keith Bogans was at the next locker, having a sandwich and some Doritos. Blair lamented that neither of those are among his culinary choices these days, as he tries to slim further down.It’s paying off.“He’s a character guy. He’s a quality guy,” Popovich said. “He’s a hard worker and obviously, he has a passion for the game.”last_img read more

Nelson Figure Skating Club enters nation-wide competition

first_imgSubmittedAnyone who has been a world champion figure skater would have a wealth of knowledge to share with up and comers.That’s exactly what members of the Nelson Figure Skating Club are counting on.The club has entered a nation-wide Skate Canada competition and the top prize is a one-day skate seminar given by Canadian skating icon Kurt Browning.“We would love to see Kurt come to Nelson and work with our skaters,” says NFSC Publicity Chair Murray Kimber. “It would be an opportunity of a lifetime.” Second prize is to have a national team athlete skate at a club’s year end ice show in February, 2011.The essence of the contest is this: Skate Canada asked member clubs to use photos and video to demonstrate how they have showcased the new Skate Canada logo, which launched in June 2010, and submit the entries for judging.The Nelson club produced a short film compiling skating performances from shows it gave at the Civic Arena 75th Anniversary celebration that incorporates the six different logos Skate Canada has used since its inception in 1948.Although the major prizes are awarded by jury, Nelsonites can help the club win the “Fan Favorite” prize, a Sony HD TV and video camera, by voting for the club’s entry online.“Anyone can go to the Skate Canada gallery and vote for the club of their choice,” adds Kimber. “That prize will be awarded to the club that receives the most votes, so we are asking people to vote daily.”A video system would be a valuable teaching tool as it would allow the coaches to film and analyze a skater’s performance.The Nelson Figure Skating Club invites everyone to help it become the “Fan Favorite”.Voting is open now and runs until the end of December.Visit nelsonfigureskatingclub.ca to view the film and to find out how to vote.last_img read more

Behind the scenes with a geocaching reviewer: Antheia

first_imgShare with your Friends:More If you’re lucky enough to meet her in person, thank her for the work she does to keep the game we all love going. Yvonne standing at the Prime Meridian virtual cache at the Royal Observatory Greenwich – GCK7HHThree years into playing the game, UK geocacher Yvonne Mundy (aka mundy family) was asked to become a geocaching Community Volunteer.Community Volunteers are a group of over 400 dedicated geocachers who give their time and talent to support the worldwide geocaching community. Did joining the UK Reviewer team change the way she played the game? We chatted with Yvonne—Reviewer alias Antheia—about why she loves geocaching, what it’s like to be a Reviewer, and playing squash.Tell us about how you first started geocaching, and what you like about it.“I read a small article about Geocaching in October 2005 in a local magazine. Being an adventurous, outdoor person, that weekend as a family we decided to give it a go using our car sat nav. We were triumphant in finding our first cache, and were hooked. I love that it takes me to new places, and find out about them, its sociable (I’ve made some very good friends through geocaching) and its an excellent excuse to go out for a walk.”What do you enjoy about being a reviewer?“I was very stunned to have been asked to be a reviewer and its great to give something back to the game that I am so passionate about. I get a real buzz when a newbie gets it right first time – it doesn’t happen often – when a cache comes together through positive communications between owner and reviewer, and the support I get from the UK review team. They are like extended family and we ‘speak’ most days on line.”Shades of blue in front of the Taj Mahal…and at the site of the now archived GC1A91YHow can someone best set up their cache listing in order to have it published quickly?“After reading the guidelines and taking accurate coords the cache listing needs to make sure it fits within those guidelines, with any extra information added as a note to the reviewer, such as where the hide is, any permission details, how to solve a puzzle etc. The more information you can give us the better. On publication the note to the reviewer is archived so you won’t be giving anything away.”What’s one thing you wish all geocachers knew or did before submitting a cache for review?“Obviously read the guidelines , and also for the UK cachers the UK wiki which gives details of local guidelines.”What’s your favorite type of cache to search for? “One I can find is a very good start! But give me a wow what a great place, a circular walk in the country side with good sized boxes, something imaginative and well maintained caches and I’ll be happy.”Aside from geocaching, what other hobbies do you have?“My other 2 passions are Girlguiding and playing squash. I’ve been involved in Guiding since I was a brownie and I have now been Brown Owl and a Rainbow leader for over 20 years. I have also held Island positions as outdoor activities adviser, Special needs adviser and am currenlty PR and Media adviser. I’m also becoming a trainer for Girlguiding UK and the first training I was asked to do was on geocaching!Yvonne and kids finding the geocache GC4D10.I played squash as a teenager but stopped playing in my early 20’s due to a shoulder injury, then 3 years ago I saw an advert for a Sunday morning ladies only squash and decided to get back on court. Enjoying it again, I now have 2 training sessions a week, play in an individual mixed league (going up 3 divisions in the last year), a mixed team league (we came second last cycle) and have also taken to playing racketball. In 2013 I was Jersey ladies over 40’s champion, and I competed in my first double tournament last year which was great fun. I am currently setting up a new squash club at Fort Regent where I play.”How would you describe geocaching in the UK (as compared to other places in the world)?“In the UK there is a vast diversity of caches, with something to suit everyone. We have large landowners across the UK that fully support caches on their land as long as they comply with the guidelines so as reviewers we do try to ensure that those guidelines are adhered to. There is also land in the UK that has legal protection so again the guidelines must be followed.Throughout the UK is a big series called Church Micro Series – though they don’t have to be micros! This leads you to find caches at some very interesting and pretty churches that are often steeped in history with amazing architecture detail. Currently there are 7732 published. http://www.15ddv.me.uk/geo/cm/  In the UK caches cannot be placed on church property/grounds without specific permission.Yvonne helps out in case you didn’t know where to look for this cache (we’re not saying which one it is!)Another series that has taken off in the UK and now growing in other countries is the Sidetracked Series. This takes you to caches placed near railways, which again has a great history and interesting facts about them. Many are placed where railway stations or tracks used to be which if it wasn’t for caching you maybe wouldn’t have known  existed. There are currently 2219 published with 1986 in the UK. Other countries that it has expanded to are Ireland, Germany, Russia, USA and Lithuania. In the UK a cache cannot be placed on Railway property without specific permission.” http://sidetrackedseries.infoFinally, if you could go geocaching anywhere in the world (or find any geocache in the world), where would you go?“It would have to be USA as I would love to go to HQ and find the cache there, and to see the hub of geocaching. Also to find “HG-35 Antheia (Reviewer UK)” GC479T5 in the Mojarve Desert, California, which makes up a piece of geo-art.”Yvonne/Antheia/mundy family lives in Jersey, one of the Channel Islands off the coast of France. Don’t be surprised if you see her username on geocache logbooks in the area!center_img SharePrint RelatedThe Seanachai: Keeper of the Old Lore, Reviewer of the New CachesMay 6, 2015In “Community”Behind the Scenes with a Geocaching.com Volunteer ReviewerJanuary 13, 2011In “Community”Featured Geocacher of the Month Award WinnersAugust 25, 2011In “Community”last_img read more
