first_imgBeaver Valley Nitehawks sure know how to keep team supporters on the edge of their seats.Trailing by one with 10 minutes remaining in the game, the Hawks struck for four goals en route to a 5-2 victory over the Aldergrove Kodiaks in the final of the Cyclone Taylor Cup Sunday afternoon before more than 1,200 fans at the NDCC Arena.The victory ends a 13-year BC Junior B Hockey Championship drought for the Hawks.The last time the Fruitvale-based club won the Cyclone Taylor Cup was in 2001 with current skipper Terry Jones at the helm.“This is an unreal feeling,” said Hawks sniper Dallas Calvin, who led the charge back with a pair of third-period goals.“I really don’t know how to explain this . . . it’s just unreal.”“It’s very satisfying . . . it’s what we set out to do August 25th,” said Hawks head coach Terry Jones minutes after the final-buzzer celebration.“When Archie (McKinnon) and Ryan (Edwards) told me they decided to come back I said “let’s build our team for a Cyclone.”“I tell you we worked hard all year long,” Jones added, “and this is a real culminating feeling because you worked so hard and we’re down 2-1 with 10 minutes left and we find a way to win.”Trailing 2-1 after Adam Callegari scored an unassisted goal to give the Kodiaks the lead early in the third, the Nitehawks tied the game when Braden Fuller jammed a loose puck past Aldergove goalie Jordan Liem.Liem was instrumental in getting the Kodiaks into the Gold Medal game after shutting the door on Nelson Leafs during the final round robin game.It was then time for Beaver Valley game MVP Dallas Calvin to take over the game.The 6’5″, 205-pound forward scored unassisted with six minutes remaining to give Beaver Valley the lead for good. Calvin, finishing the game with four points, then combined with Fuller to give the Hawks some breathing room less than two minutes later.Mitch Foyle scored a shorthanded marker into an empty net to complete the comeback.“We just really got into our game . . . we found our rhythm and just started getting pucks deep and went from there,” said Calvin, who has been plagued by injury throughout the playoffs.“Once we got that first one (in the period) it builds momentum,” Calvin added. “As soon as you get that first one you start flying and you just want to get more.”The teams played through a scoreless first period before Riley Brandt opened the scoring on the power play for Beaver Valley.Aldergrove captain, and game MVP for the Pacific Junior Hockey League champs, Kenny Prato tied the game five minutes later.Aldergrove out shot the Hawks 27-22 in a contest that saw the Kootenay International Junior Hockey League winners start a lot slower than the first time the teams met during the round robin part of the four-team tournament when Beaver Valley opened the scoring 12 seconds into the game.“(Aldergove) is a great team,” Jones explained when asked about the slow start of the Hawks.“Every team here is tough. To win this is just an incredible feat. There are four good teams battling over four days. . .. Our guys are spent. They spent everything they had and Aldergrove came out and really took it too us.”Beaver Valley now advances to the Keystone Cup, which begins in just a few days in Abbotsford.First up Thursday morning at 9 a.m. is the host Abbotsford Pilots.Beaver Valley then meets Saskatoon Quakers later in the day.But that’s in a few days. Now is the time to celebrate and enjoy what is an incredible feat for the Beaver Valley Nitehawks.“We’ll get a good rest and get ready to have some more fun next week,” said Calvin when asked about the upcoming Keystone Cup tournament.And what about those injuries, Dallas?“I’ll will be good to go next weekend,” he said with a smile.TOURNAMENT NOTES: 2014 Cyclone Taylor Cup chairperson Russell Stocks said attendance for the four-day tournament in Nelson topped the 6,500 mark with the best crowds happening Friday when Beaver Valley and Nelson played to a 2-2 tie and during Sunday’s Final. . . .Dallas Calvin’s gold medal game explosion powered the forward into the lead in Hawks’ scoring with six points on three goals and three assists. Riley Brandt, with five points — three goals and two assists — was second while Ryan Edwards and Dan Holland each had three points. . . . The Cyclone Taylor Cup now moves to Mission for 2015 with the Outlaws of the PJHL playing host to the tournament.last_img read more

The rain continues through tomorrow late morning to midday. Rain totals are nearly unchanged this morning for the event tonight and tomorrow. We expect .2″-.6″ with 90% coverage. Temps stay warm today, but will come  crashing down as the front passes tomorrow morning. We can see parts of far western Ohio (where the rain stops sooner and we could even see clouds break up by tomorrow morning) dip into the middle and upper 30s, which would be good enough for patchy frost. The rest of the state likely still has plenty of clouds and moisture around tomorrow morning, and therefore escapes the coldest overnight air.The balance of tomorrow turns out partly to mostly sunny, and then sun dominates all day Sunday, along with Monday. Temps are cool, but will bounce a little bit for Sunday and Monday.10 day rain potentialScattered showers are back late Tuesday afternoon and they continue into Wednesday late morning. Rain totals from this minor even will be from a few hundredths to .3″ with coverage at 70%. These totals are lower this morning compared to our look yesterday, due to the southern secondary surge of moisture staying farther south. Still, though, it will be enough to trigger a small pause in fieldwork in many places.Dry for the balance of Wednesday with clouds slowly dissipating. Then mostly sunny and slowly warming for the rest of the week, Thursday through Saturday.We kick off the extended period with a good chance of rain for Sunday the 20th, and that moisture lingers through Monday evening. The intensity is not all that spectacular, but we do end up with moisture adding up over the longer period. Rain totals can be from .1″-.5″ with coverage at 90% of Ohio. The rains are significantly higher farther west, where we see some thunderstorm potential. The rest of the extended period is sunny, dry and cool. We have no rain threat from Tuesday the 22nd through Saturday the 26th. Temps will be normal to below normal.last_img read more

LATEST STORIES “We talked about that a lot. Some kind of way, we have to keep those guys in the rotation and keep them available,” Gentry said. “Obviously, they may not play the amount of minutes that they’ve been playing … but I do think that we have to keep them in the rotation and put them in situations where we can see how their development is going and see how they are against the better players in the league and playing with our better players.”The Pelicans have made Holiday the face of the franchise since Davis’ trade demand. The veteran guard, who is in the second year of a five-year, $126 million contract, said he understands the inherent conflict between focusing on players who are committed to the franchise long-term and playing Davis. But he added, “I think we’re still trying to win. Having Anthony on our team and Anthony on the court, in my opinion, is our best chance of winning.“So I guess maybe there’s a little give and take,” Holiday continued. “Maybe you don’t play him 38 minutes or whatever. … But if you want to develop guys, we can probably find different slots.”Gentry said he wasn’t concerned that his players might be distracted during home games by boos directed at Davis.“We’re in a hell of a lot of trouble if we’re going to let boos determine if we play hard or not,” Gentry said.The coach also sounded confident that team chemistry would not be undermined.“When you’re a competitor, when you step out between the lines, you’re going to play basketball and you’re going to try to do the best you can with your other teammates to try to win the basketball game,” Gentry said. “I think that’s where we are right now. The shock of the whole thing is over. Obviously he said he doesn’t want to be here; he wants to be traded. All that has been known. Now what we’re trying to do is bring back some normalcy to the whole situation and what can we do as coaches and what can we do as teammates to try to win basketball games.”Davis said he has no regrets over how he’s handled the matter.“I never regret anything I do,” he said.He also said he would have understood if the Pelicans insisted on not playing him. ‘We are too hospitable,’ says Sotto amid SEA Games woes New Orleans Pelicans forward Anthony Davis (23) takes the court to warm up for the team’s NBA basketball game against the Minnesota Timberwolves, his first game since injuring his left index finger last month, in New Orleans on Friday, Feb. 8, 2019. (AP Photo/Scott Threlkeld)NEW ORLEANS — Even with one foot out the door, Anthony Davis is showing he can still produce prolific statistics for the New Orleans Pelicans.He only needed 25 minutes to score 32-points in his first game for New Orleans since requesting a trade nearly two weeks ago. Davis also had nine rebounds and three blocks in a 122-117 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Friday night.ADVERTISEMENT Whether his presence in the lineup is sustainable for a club that is trying to move on without him — and protect his trade value by keeping him healthy — remains to be seen. But for now, coach Alvin Gentry and other Pelicans veterans sound inclined to try to make it work.“He’s obviously made it known that he won’t sign back, but he still loves the game of basketball. I know that he loves us as players, and he’s going to go out there and play as hard as he can,” Pelicans point guard Jrue Holiday said. “If Anthony’s out there, that’s the best chance of us winning.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSPrivate companies step in to help SEA Games hostingSPORTSUrgent reply from Philippine ‍football chiefSPORTSPalace wants Cayetano’s PHISGOC Foundation probed over corruption chargesThe Pelicans entered their game at Memphis on Saturday night at 25-31, five games behind the Los Angeles Clippers for the Western Conference’s final playoff spot with 26 games left.When Davis initially made his trade request public through his agent, Rich Paul, Davis’ image was largely removed from the Pelicans’ website and promotional material. Gentry also started providing more playing time to younger players the club wants to develop. US judge bars Trump’s health insurance rule for immigrants But after Thursday’s trade deadline passed without a deal to move Davis, the Pelicans had to decide if they were willing to defy NBA rules by shelving their healthy six-time All-Star. For now, they’ve put him back in the starting lineup, albeit on reduced playing time as he works his way back from a sprained left index finger that had sidelined him since Jan. 18.On Friday night, Davis was kept on the bench in a tense fourth quarter despite the teams being separated by as little as one basket several times in the waning minutes.Gentry said he limited Davis’ minutes because it had been weeks since he played.“I was not going to have him — first game back — play 38, 40 minutes,” Gentry said. “I thought he played well the minutes that he was in there and did a great job. He was typical Anthony.”Gentry is hoping to find a balance that allows Davis to play — and hopefully stay healthy — while allowing other front-court players like the resurgent Jahlil Okafor and third-year pro Cheick Diallo to get meaningful minutes.ADVERTISEMENT SEA Games hosting troubles anger Duterte MOST READ Oil plant explodes in Pampanga town Border collie named Verb wins Westminster agility contest “Obviously, it’s a business,” Davis said. “I know their standpoint on it and I was prepared for that.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Nextlast_img read more

first_imgMusic therapy charity Nordoff Robbins has paid tribute to Status Quo guitarist Rick Parfitt, who died just before Christmas.“Nordoff Robbins were incredibly saddened to hear of the passing of Rick Parfitt over Christmas,” the charity said in a statement. “Rick, alongside Francis Rossi, was a patron of Nordoff Robbins and a big supporter of our work. We were lucky enough to know Rick well and he spent time getting to know our work and the people we helped and he was a regular visitor to our events and our HQ to see our music therapy first hand.“Status Quo won a Silver Clef Award in 1981, and later a Lifetime Achievement Award in 2011. They were there at our Live at Knebworth concert in 1990, and continued to generously support our events, from the Race Day, Boxing Dinner and Clay Shoot, to donating all manner of signed guitars and even welcome drinks for the 2014 Silver Clef Awards.“We couldn’t have hoped for a more passionate supporter than Rick. The world has lost a great musician, philanthropist, and a generally great man. We’re proud to have called him a friend.”“We have been supporting Nordoff Robbins for over 20 years and are proud to be their Patrons. The work they do, helping people through music is really amazing. We have seen for ourselves how Nordoff Robbins music therapy can have a huge impact on vulnerable children and adults who are limited or isolated by their condition. Music therapy quite literally uses the power of music to transform lives.” – Francis and Rick, Status Quolast_img read more
