Flyers round out season in Hythe, S.R.

first_imgThe Senior Flyers are heading into their final weekend of the NPHL regular season, with just two games left to play. Thursday night, the Flyers will play in Hythe.  Fort St. John has beaten Hythe in all three meetings so far this season, but the Mustangs have been an impressive team on their return to the NPHL, posting a 13-11 record with two games remaining, despite playing in the much tougher NPHL West.   Their best effort against the Flyers was a 5-2 loss in Fort St. John Dec 27th – a game that was close until the third period. Saturday night, the Flyers visit Spirit River.  The Rangers (18-6-1) boast a fast and physical team by NPHL standards, including Mike Lefley who, at 81 points heading into his final game, will win the NPHL scoring title. – Advertisement -FSJ has already clinched first overall in the league, meaning this weekend’s games aren’t must wins. But, the urgency is building for the Flyers, who are looking to break out of the winter doldrums that seems to have taken ahold of them in the past few weeks. There’s also few competitive games remaining.  After playing Hythe and S.R. this weekened, the Flyers may not get another competitive game until the NPHL finals.   After that, it will be another layoff, as they watch Alberta AAA teams raise their games as they compete to reach the MacKenzie Cup. Coach Adam Brash says he’s looking for the team to turn things around, and soon. “It all starts in practice” he says, “We’ll head to Hythe and get a good road win, by working hard, and just carry that momentum.” Advertisement Brash is concerned about the lack of competition, particularly for players on the Flyers’ affiliate team, such as Greg Lakovic and Mike Hofstrand, who are ineligible to play any NPHL games. “They’re not in game shape” he admits, “But they are pro hockey players. They’ve played at this level before, and they’ll be skating a lot between now and then.” Catch both of this weekend’s games live on Moose FM, and online at energeticcity-beta.mystagingwebsite.com. Pregame shows on both Thursday and Saturday begin at 8:15pm.last_img read more

Chelsea’s Morata to join Atletico Madrid on permanent deal

first_imgThe Spain international was Chelsea’s record signing when he joined the club from Real Madrid for £60 million ($75 million) on a five-year contract in July 2017, and scored 24 goals in 72 appearances for the Blues.Despite scoring on his Premier League debut, the former Real Madrid player failed to find his feet in England, with injury and poor form costing him his place in the starting line-up.He had to share striking responsibilities with Olivier Giroud when the France international arrived in January 2018 and now-departed manager Maurizio Sarri’s preference for using Eden Hazard as a central striker further restricted Morata’s involvement.Morata tweeted that he was happy that he would be remaining with Diego Simeone’s side.“We would like to thank Alvaro for his contribution and wish him the best of luck for the future,” Chelsea said in a statement.Atletico, who signed another forward Joao Felix from Benfica for 126 million euros ($142 million) earlier this week, finished second in La Liga last season.The Spanish club said in a statement: “Atletico de Madrid and Chelsea have reached an agreement for the transfer of Alvaro Morata as of July 1, 2020.“The Spanish striker will play at our club on loan this season, as was agreed when he joined Atletico de Madrid in the January transfer window, and the move will become permanent at the beginning of the 2020-21 season.”0Shares0000(Visited 10 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Alvaro Morata will move to Atletico Madrid on a permanent deal at the end of next season © AFP/File / PIERRE-PHILIPPE MARCOULONDON, United Kingdom, Jul 6 – Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata will join Atletico Madrid on a permanent basis after the end of his 18-month loan deal, the clubs announced on Saturday.The 26-year-old has been at the Spanish club since January, scoring six goals in 17 games, and is on loan until the end of the 2019/20 season.last_img read more

Angels’ focus turns to rotation for ALDS

first_imgThe Angels can still earn the home-field advantage throughout the playoffs by finishing with the best record in the American League. Their 8-7 defeat to the Rangers, though, left them third in the AL’s best-record race at 92-65, a game behind the leading Cleveland Indians and a half game behind the Boston Red Sox. But the Angels’ primary focus seems to be the rotation and getting their pitchers lined up for the playoffs. Kelvim Escobar will be scratched from today’s start, his second scratch in a week, and moved to this weekend’s series at Oakland. Dustin Moseley will start today instead. Escobar originally was supposed to take the mound Saturday, but inflammation in his right shoulder prompted the change. Escobar, who is expected to be the Angels’ Game 2 starter in the American League Division Series, was the subject of a recent meeting by the coaching staff, which decided on the latest move. “We really want to give him more time to get strong and he’ll pitch over the weekend,” Manager Mike Scioscia said. By letting Escobar get further along in his recovery from a sore shoulder, it also gives the right-hander a better schedule heading into the playoffs. If he pitched today, he would have 10 days until his playoff start. By moving Escobar to Saturday’s game at Oakland, he will have five days rest between starts. “We’re talking that it’s better for me to take this little break now and keep doing my treatments and exercises and make sure I’m 100 percent pain-free and pitch in Oakland and go from there,” Escobar said. “That way I don’t have to wait 10 days to pitch again.” After Escobar, the next priority will be to get Jered Weaver in line. If expected Game 1 starter John Lackey pitches Friday at Oakland and is followed by Escobar on Saturday, then it is expected that Weaver will be pushed back to Sunday. If Weaver was to take his normal turn, he would be starting Wednesday at Texas, but Joe Saunders has been announced as Wednesday’s starter. If the Angels play in the opening playoff series that starts Oct. 3, then Lackey, Escobar and Weaver will be the only three starters needed for the five-game series, barring any rainouts of course. If the Angels are in the ALDS series that begins Oct. 4 then Saunders will have to take a turn in the rotation in the first round. Notes: Anderson is expected to return to the lineup today, while Guerrero gets another day of rest. Gary Matthews Jr., who returned this weekend from a sprained right ankle, will get a decent amount of playing time this week, but is expected to get either today or Wednesday off. … Guerrero, who hasn’t played in the outfield since Sept. 5 because of an inflamed right triceps, will test his throwing arm by this weekend. doug.padilla@sgvn.com160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

By Doug Padilla STAFF WRITER ARLINGTON, Texas – With more rewards still to be had, the Angels didn’t completely abandon their competitive spirit. Vladimir Guerrero and Garret Anderson were out of the lineup against the Texas Rangers on Monday, which certainly qualified as an attempt to surrender. But a day after clinching the American League West, most other starters were pressed into action, helped along with coffee and some aspirin after a champagne celebration one day prior. last_img read more

Danica Mania arrives

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREWalnut’s Malik Khouzam voted Southern California Boys Athlete of the Week Throughout the season, ticket sales spiked, TV ratings boomed and Danica quickly became the face of the series. Which brings us to this weekend, and Sunday’s season-ending Toyota Indy 400 at California Speedway. At a promotional event Wednesday, Patrick was peppered with silly questions courtesy of the goofs from “ESPN Hollywood,” who told a group of sports writers in the back of the room to shhhhhhh so they could hear the answers to truly pressing concerns. Danica, they asked, do you ever see yourself acting in a dramatic role? This is where the confusion begins. This is where the red carpet movie premieres, the late-night talk show appearances and the sexy magazine spreads fool people into thinking she is Anna Kournikova, Part II. LOS ANGELES – Danica Patrick is asked to look into the camera, smile and repeat the following line: “Hi, this is Danica Patrick, and you’re watching `ESPN Hollywood,’ where sports and entertainment collide.” If a statement existed to describe Patrick’s rookie season on the Indy Racing League circuit, and the so-called Danica Mania that surrounded the organization, that would be it. Save for a few hardcore racing fans and subscribers of FHM magazine, no one had heard of the 23-year-old driver before this year. Then, in one spectacular avalanche of publicity and hype, Danica Mania crashed down onto the United States – and suddenly she was everywhere. After May’s Indianapolis 500, where she finished fourth, Patrick was on the cover of Sports Illustrated, TV Guide and did 60-plus interviews with other media outlets in the three days after the race. center_img Patrick, first and foremost, is a race car driver, not a model or an actress. She has won three poles and has seven top-10 finishes this season en route to clinching rookie of the year honors. She thinks the glamour of the red carpet is fun, and being on TV shows and magazines is cool. But that’s just side stuff. What she really wants to do is win. Badly. She is serious at the track, with a game face that includes little or no makeup, and she always dresses down, not up. Besides the sex appeal, there is another, more frustrating comparison with Kournikova: Neither woman has won anything. Yet Patrick, with all of her major sponsors based in Southern California, has a decent shot to get her first victory Sunday. “I want to do so well this weekend,” she said. “The most magical and perfect way to end this season would be to win.” For now, participating in a somewhat normal life is still possible. She said going grocery shopping isn’t out of the question, and she doesn’t worry about crazy fans following her every move. But she fears the day when her fame might render even the smallest tasks burdensome. “It’s not unrealistic and that will then be the worst thing,” she said. This is someone who tends to conduct every interview with the same calm, reasoned manner. Her attitude is one reason she said she never gets nervous when meeting people. “People are people,” she said. “I don’t think anybody’s above anybody.” At one point in the interview, workers began rattling dishes and silverware in the back of the room. “That silverware is so loud,” she said to an assistant, hoping to silence the forks and knives. Aha! A diva-like statement? A crack in the humble armor? Not really. “I just want you guys to be able to hear this stuff,” she said, nodding toward the writers and their tape recorders. Of course, not every day is a good day, and the energy for her various obligations isn’t always easy to muster. Being evaluated during one of her ho-hum days is what she said is the worst aspect of celebrity. “People are looking harder, and they’re looking constantly,” she said. “I am human, and I have bad days just like everybody else has bad days. … Say today was the worst day of my life … and I could hardly speak – I’d be judged a little bit. “That’s one of the hardest things – people kind of expect more from you.” The IRL, however, couldn’t hope for much more. The series’ weekly conference call, originally designed to promote various drivers, ended up featuring Danica on a regular basis to help diffuse the media frenzy. “We were getting 12 to 15 calls in a given week (for interview requests),” said John Griffin, the IRL’s vice president of public relations. “She caught the imagination of the general public in this country.” Sunday likely is Patrick’s first and only appearance in Fontana. The IRL has announced the series will not return to Southern California next season, part of a slimmed down 14-race schedule. For someone who once said racing in NASCAR’s 36-event season wouldn’t provide enough coveted weekends by the pool, one might think fewer races could be a good thing. But she doesn’t plan to use the extra time for the beach or for playing dramatic roles in Hollywood movies. She plans to drive. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set!last_img

Defense carries wounded Ducks

first_img Brady Leaf, a sophomore used primarily as a holder, was ineffectual at quarterback most of the fourth, but after Phillips’ recovery of Bell’s second fumble on the Oregon 34, he completed a 10-yard pass to Demetrius Williams and a 17-yarder to Terrence Whitehead for crucial first downs to run out the clock. Leaf finished 5 of 10 for 53 yards and an interception. @Roundup Score:At Stanford 45, Arizona State 35 @Roundup Text:Trent Edwards passed for career-highs of 303 yards and three touchdowns, and the Cardinal scored 38 consecutive points in coach Walt Harris’ first home victory. Mark Bradford caught nine passes for 185 yards, including two long touchdown passes in the second quarter while the Cardinal (4-2, 3-1 Pac-10) pulled away from Arizona State for their third win in a row. Rudy Burgess caught a pass for a touchdown and ran for a score for the Sun Devils (3-4, 1-3), whose once-promising season has plummeted with three consecutive losses. Arizona State hasn’t won at Stanford since 1997. Quarterback Sam Keller was cleared to start for Arizona State despite an injured thumb, shoulder and ankle, but the Bay Area native struggled, throwing for just 98 ineffective yards before getting benched in the third quarter. Keller’s replacement, freshman Rudy Carpenter, threw an interception on his third play that was returned 26 yards for a score by linebacker Mike Silva. But Carpenter recovered to lead a series of impressive drives resulting in 28 points, throwing scoring passes to Burgess, Terry Richardson and Brent Miller to trim Stanford’s huge lead. Arizona State was ranked 14th before a heartbreaking 38-28 loss to USC on Oct. 1, and the Sun Devils then were beaten 31-17 at home by Oregon before their bye week. Now they must win three of their final four games just to become bowl-eligible. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Ducks won for the fourth consecutive time since losing to No. 1 USC. They also won their seventh in a row over the Wildcats (1-6, 0-4). Haberly’s score 2:46 into the fourth quarter came after the Wildcats knocked out Clemens, the third-best passer in school history, and backup Dennis Dixon on consecutive possessions in the third. Clemens couldn’t put weight on his left ankle after a hard sack by Arizona’s Copeland Bryan with about eight minutes left in third, and coach Mike Bellotti didn’t expect the team leader back until the postseason. “There’s a slight chance he’ll be back for a bowl game,” Bellotti said. “He is scheduled to have ankle surgery tomorrow.” Haberly couldn’t believe it when he saw the ball come out of Mike Bell’s arms. “I was going to put a hit on him, and then I saw the ball,” Haberly said. “My eyes lit up, and I grabbed it.
