Despite controlling the ball in a scoreless first half, the Ellsworth/Sumner football team had a tough time finding its way into the end zone against the Stearns/Lee Academy Minutemen. In need of big plays late in the second half, the Eagles finally found the breakthrough.Touchdowns by Jacob Shorey and Declan White and a successful 2-point conversion pass by Connor Crawford gave Ellsworth/Sumner (2-5) a 14-12 win over the Minutemen (1-6) in Millinocket on Friday. It was the Eagles’ first road win of the season.“This was a total team effort on our part, and it felt great to get another win out there after how hard our kids worked all week,” Ellsworth/Sumner head coach Duane Crawford said. “We focused on controlling the clock all week long in practice, and it paid off for us.”Shorey carried the ball 35 times for 154 yards and scored his touchdown on a 1-yard plunge after Stearns/Lee Academy scored the game’s first touchdown. After White answered another Stearns/Lee Academy touchdown by going 70 yards for the score on the ensuing kickoff return, Crawford found Fickett for the conversion to give the Eagles a 14-12 lead that they held for the rest of the game. Ellsworth/Sumner ran a total of 65 offensive plays.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder textOn defense, Andrew Brown led the way with 10 solo tackles and three assisted tackles. Declan White added a solo tackle and eight assisted tackles, and Chris Fickett recorded an interception.“We were really pounding the ball well the entire game, and we put emphasis on stopping their quarterback because of how well he played against Washington Academy and Bucksport,” Duane Crawford said. “They really tested us in that second half, but our group got together and responded quickly when we really needed.”Ellsworth/Sumner’s next game will be at home against the Maine Central Institute Huskies (7-0) at 7 p.m. Friday, Oct. 21. The Huskies, which are the top team in Class D North this season, have not won a game by fewer than 10 points all year.“MCI is a really good team, and they’ll be a really tough challenge for us,” Duane Crawford said. “After this win, our guys are really excited to get out there and play in front of our home fans these next two games.” MPA approves golf, XC, field hockey, soccer; football, volleyball moved to spring – September 10, 2020 Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020

South Africa-born Grant Elliott clobbers Dale Steyn over wide long as New Zealand enter the final for the first time by beating South Africa. Elliott celebrates and in an image which has become an icon for sportsman’s spirit, he lends a hand to Steyn who is down on the ground with disappointment and helps him get back on his feet. July 15, 2019. Final. Lord’s. Ben Stokes, born in Christchurch to Gerard Stokes, a former All Black rugby player, is the Man of the Match for his knock of 84* and his efforts in the super over as England become world champions for the first time due to not an outright result, but due to a superior boundary count.”The atmosphere, the emotion that was going through the whole game, he managed to deal with that in an extremely experienced manner. And obviously, everybody watching at home will hopefully try and be the next Ben Stokes,” Morgan couldn’t have paid a bigger compliment to the Man of the Final.He was on his hunches when Carlos Brathwaite hit him for those sixes under a smoky Calcutta skyline during a World T20 final three summers back. His career could have ended that day and Morgan couldn’t agree more.”Yes and I have said that a number of times about Ben. I think a lot of careers would have been ended after what happened in Calcutta,” Morgan reiterated.Funnily ironical but all of England’s premier all-rounders over the years have had colourful lives bordering on controversy. Whether it is Ian Botham smoking cannabis or an inebriated Andrew Flintoff hitting the sea and trying to paddle a boat, they have never been the establishment’s favourite child.Stokes is no exception as he was found doing a Rocky Balboa in front of a Bristol pub a couple of years ago. He floored a few with perfect right hooks and then stood in the court room in front of the judge.Another premature ending loomed but the ‘Big Ben’ is destiny’s child. And then Lord’s happened — a World Cup final and he did everything.”To come through it is extraordinary. He’s (Stokes) is almost superhuman. He has really carried the team and our batting line-up,” Morgan was beaming for once while showing a dour face during other times.”I know Jos and his partnership was extraordinary, but to bat with the lower order the way he did I thought was incredible,” he showered praise.Tired, sweaty and exhausted after a tie, he came out again, ran a three, hit a six, got a score for Super Over.And just when one thought he has done everything, he reminded young Jofra Archer: “One over won’t define who you are”.That was enough to bowl one good ball that ensured a World Cup win. From Sunday, the legend of Stokes will only grow.And Morgan attributed it to the all-rounder’s qualities as a team-man.”Ben, on numerous occasions, has stood up individually and in a unit for us. He leads the way in training, in any team meetings we have, and he’s an incredible cricketer.”And today he’s had a huge day out and obviously we are thankful for that,” said ‘Captain’ Morgan, ready to raise a toast for his asset.(With Inputs: PTI)
Against the high-powered No. 10 Fighting Sioux, Derek Lee and the Badgers will be tested often.[/media-credit]Last season, depth was the buzzword surrounding the Wisconsin hockey program.This year, however, deep is the perfect way to describe WCHA rival North Dakota.UW’s youth will once again be tested this weekend as the No. 13 Badgers (6-2-2-) prepare to take on the 10th-ranked Fighting Sioux (5-4-1) at the Kohl Center.UND boasts an experienced lineup complete with 16 NHL draft picks. The Sioux can generate scoring from all four lines and have arguably the deepest defensive corps in the conference, if not the nation.“You said it, it’s basically their depth,” UW head coach Mike Eaves said. “They are an upperclassmen team with some good depth and they have the experience that can help them get to a high level.”Preseason WCHA player of the year and team captain Chay Genoway leads the Fighting Sioux as one of the top defenseman in the country. Genoway missed all but nine games due to post-concussion syndrome last year, but the fifth-year senior is back and working his way toward top form.“In watching video, [Genoway] is skating well, he’s got confidence with the puck and he brings a lot to his team,” Eaves said.“They have Genoway back and he’s a real good defenseman and they have some good depth back there,” sophomore forward Derek Lee said.First-round pick Derek Forbort joined UND this year and the freshman brings even more talent to the Sioux blue line.UND’s forwards enjoy similar depth and they’ll look to attack the Badger defensemen from the get go. Senior forward Matt Frattin leads the team with eight goals and Corban Knight is the top point-getter with 11.But along with all that skill, North Dakota is known for its physical brand of hockey. After a rigorous series last weekend against the Gophers, the Badgers are expecting more of the same from UND.“It’s going to be physical,” Eaves said at his press conference Monday. “They are all about taking time and space away as a lot of good teams, as we try to play.”“We know it will be physical out there,” junior defenseman Jake Gardiner said. “But we’ve been physical, getting a lot of hits all year. That’s been big for us.”As Gardiner said, the Badgers aren’t about to shy away from a battle, and UW knows a thing or two about scoring goals as well.In fact, Wisconsin leads the country in goals scored this season. UW has netted 43 goals in just 10 games despite so much inexperience up front.The men tasked with slowing down the Badger offense are goaltenders Brad Eidsness and Aaron Dell. Eidsness entered the season as the No. 1 goaltender, having played over 80 games in his career, but after a shaky start, Dell stepped in and played both games for UND last weekend against Minnesota Duluth.But regardless of who is in the opposing net, the Badgers’ mindset won’t change.“I’m sure whoever they put in the net is going to be a good goaltender for them,” Lee said. “We’re not too worried about that. We know both guys are good goaltenders.”This series always tends to bring out a little more intensity at the Kohl Center as fans and players feel the excitement when North Dakota comes to town.It’s early, but these two powerhouse programs are currently tied for third in the WCHA standings.The Badgers are still forming their identity in these early stages of the season and they are looking forward to seeing how they measure up against a preseason Frozen Four favorite and conference rival.“This is what you play for. You want to play against the best competition. This series is going to be a battle,” Lee said.“We get excited because it’s a tremendous measuring stick for us,” Eaves added. “You know you are going to see tremendous competition and that draws out the best that you have. That’s what’s so exciting about playing in the WCHA.”

The president said BFN resolved to employ local coaches as it could not afford a foreign coach on fulltime role.The board also announced the dissolution of the coaches, the umpires and the players associations. It said there was a need to elect new members as the concerned executive bodies had been in office for close to over five years.â€œAt the meeting, the umpires association made a presentation that they plan to have their election by April and we have actually asked the three association to forward to the federation their constitutions. The umpires association submitted its constitution and our observation was that it should be updated because it seems it was done quite a while ago. For the other two associations, the board decided to dissolve their executives and put in a place a three-man committee to run the affairs of those associations into having elections to elect a new Exco,â€ Orbih said.Four of the national players will hit Indonesia from March 9 for two months exchange programme while the nationâ€™s top female player will tour Europe for one month, courtesy of the Badminton Federation of Africa (BCA).Orbih, however, lamented the exclusion of Badminton by the Ministry of Sports as one of the sports listed for the Commonwealth Games in April.He said Nigeria which excelled at the All Africa Individual Championship in Algeria remains the best in Africa.He lamented that while six African countries will be represented at the Commonwealth Games, Nigeria, the continentâ€™s powerhouse will be excluded.â€œI tell you itâ€™s a very touchy issue. Before we went to Algeria, we were informed we were dropped from the Commonwealth list. I asked why and the feelers we got was that we are not seen to be likely medal winners. I found it a bit interesting because you can never know who will win a medal until a person goes to participate,â€ concludes the BFN chief.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Olawale Ajimotokan in AbujaThe Badminton Federation of Nigeria (BFN) has proposed to hold oral and written interviews for the 33 candidates that applied for the national coaching jobs on March 13 and 15.The decision was one of the resolutions taken by the BFN board at its meeting over the weekend in Abuja.BFN President, Francis Orbih, said it resolved to employ a head coach for the senior and junior teams in addition to two assistants for each of those teams.Orbih said the technical committee will subsequently recommend the most suitable candidates it thinks should be employed to the advertised positions, based on performance in those two interviews, to the board.This position is a dramatic shift by BFN which in the past had just one individual that combined the function as the national coach for the senior and junior teams.
5 Nov 2013 England Golf loses two Past Presidents England Golf lost two eminent Past Presidents during the autumn, 83-year-old Peter Dutton and John Hall, who would have turned 95 on Christmas Eve. Cheshire-based Dutton was English Golf Union President in 1989 and lived a busy and colourful life inside and outside of golf. It is true to say his life centred on sport and music while he also had an avid interest in railways. Peter became involved in golf early on and was captain at Prenton Golf Club at the age of 31 and a couple of years ago the club honoured him with a dinner to celebrate 50 years since his captaincy. He was an accomplished golfer, getting down to a single figure handicap, and won the Cheshire Foursomes Championship at Prenton in 1967 with Jack Woodcock. Over 600 people attended his funeral at St Stephens Church in Prenton, which was an indication of the remarkable number of lives touched by him in some way or another down the years. He was chairman of his parish council at one stage and president of amateur football club Liverpool Ramblers, while he was also a season ticket holder at Liverpool FC. His musical interests involved singing with the choir at St Stephens Church and with a local group. Back in the 1980s, the EGU president also doubled as the union’s chairman but Peter felt this was too much so he bravely split the roles, nominating John Flanders as the EGU’s first chairman. It was a radical move at the time and he received a certain amount of opposition. However, he won the day. Peter was also an avid supporter of junior golf and was a regular traveller with England for the European Boys Team Championship. His interest in junior golf saw him donate the trophy which is now played for in the English Junior Champion Club event. Peter leaves a wife Ann and children Richard, Howard and Sally and six grand children. John Hall’s life was also sport orientated. Born and bred in Morpeth, Northumberland, it is told he joined Morpeth Golf Club as an eight year old. Educated at King Edward Grammar School in the town, he studied dentistry at Durham University before becoming a dentist at Bedlington. In World War II he joined the Medical Corps reaching the rank of Lieutenant Colonel, serving in India and Burma. In peace time, John was always involved in sport. He loved cricket and golf and played rugby at university. He represented the army and said he played at all the major grounds such as Twickenham, Murrayfield and Cardiff Arms Park but missed Lansdowne Road in Dublin. A founder member of Morpeth Rugby Club, however he devoted much of his time to golf, both playing and administering. He joined the Northumberland Executive and was county president in 1969 and ’70. His association with the EGU began in the early 1970s when he represented Northumberland on the Council. He also joined the R&A and served on its Amateur Status Committee and became EGU president in 1979. He formed great friendships with many but especially Neil Hodgkin, another former EGU president and the architect of the EGU’s move to Woodhall Spa. He was also a passionate follower of all the English amateur tournaments, the Home Internationals as well as the Walker and Curtis Cups and could be seen attending events at home and abroad until quite recently, usually with his great friend George Logan. His wife Gladys predeceased him but he leaves a daughter, Diane.

They trust Espanyol to take advantage of the fluid relationship that exists with him Benfica, since without going any further a year ago they cited a loan in Cornellà Ferreyra Y Alpha Semedo, to convince the Eagles, which however delay the operation in the absence of a substitute for From Thomas, that although he does not play he can act as a wild card.The Madrid attacker it is an old yearning of Espanyol, which already in summer of 2017 he considered his assignment, as I recognized in AS last December 7 who was then a parakeet sports director, Jordi Lardín. Thomas already lived in a similar position to the blue and white with Rayo Vallecano last season, in which his 14 goals however were not enough to achieve permanence.
