Kings allow Artest to come back

first_imgIndiana Pacers guard Jamaal Tinsley was suspended for Saturday night’s game against Philadelphia for conduct detrimental to the team. Tinsley has had his share of problems this season. He was hit with a felony charge of intimidation and misdemeanor counts of battery, disorderly conduct and intimidation after a bar fight in Indianapolis last month. He also was present at the altercation at Club Rio in October that involved former Pacer Stephen Jackson. Pacers coach Rick Carlisle said those issues were unrelated to the suspension. The NBA suspended Detroit Pistons forward Rasheed Wallace one game for receiving his 16th technical foul of the season. Hardy defends titleWilson High graduate Jessica Hardy, now a sophomore at Cal, successfully defended her 100-yard breaststroke title at the NCAA women’s championships Friday in Minneapolis. Hardy finished in 59.43 seconds. Five days after his arrest on suspicion of domestic violence, Ron Artest said he’d stumbled as a father and husband – and the Sacramento Kings announced they would let the volatile player return to the team. “First, I want to apologize to my wife, to my family,” Artest said Saturday. He then lowered his head and fought back tears for nearly a minute before continuing. “I want to apologize to the Kings, to my teammates, to the NBA, everybody.” The Kings had excused Artest indefinitely Tuesday from all team activities, one day after he was arrested at his home in a Sacramento suburb. A woman called 911 and said she had been assaulted, and a police report said Artest had slapped the woman’s face and grabbed her repeatedly, causing visible injuries on her hand and leg. center_img Klitschko KOs AustinWladimir Klitschko successfully defended his IBF heavyweight title Saturday night, dropping Ray Austin with a flurry of left hooks and stopping the American challenger in the second round in Mannheim, Germany. The Ukrainian knocked down Austin 87 seconds into the round with at least three left hooks. The American climbed to his feet but referee Eddie Cotton stopped the fight. “I was surprised he got back up, but he wasn’t clear in the head,” Klitschko said. “I was motivated by the talk from Austin and his promoter, Don King, before the fight.” Klitschko improved to 48-3 with his 43rd knockout in the mandatory defense, while Austin fell to 24-4 with four draws and 16 knockouts. Hastings sets recordSouthern Illinois’ Brittany Riley had the best mark in women’s weight throw history Saturday, breaking her own record with a toss of 83 feet, 10 inches in the NCAA indoor track and field championships. Riley, a junior from Flossmoor, Ill., broke her mark of 80-7 , set this season, and won by almost 10 feet. In fact, her second-longest toss Saturday was 82-2. Later, South Carolina’s Natasha Hastings set a collegiate record in the women’s 400, finishing in 50.80 seconds. Iowa’s Kineke Alexander, the defending champion, was second in 51.48. Jones may be doneTennessee coach Jeff Fisher doesn’t expect troubled cornerback Adam “Pacman” Jones to return to the Titans’ facility with the rest of his teammates when they report March 19. The NFL is examining 10 separate incidents in which when Jones has been questioned by police since being drafted, including a Feb. 19 triple shooting at a Las Vegas strip club. Fisher and chief operating officer Steve Underwood met with Jones’ lawyers at the attorneys’ request Friday for what Fisher characterized as an information-gathering meeting. Fisher said the Titans are still gathering their own information before deciding whether to keep Jones. Marathon to pay upOrganizers of the Los Angeles Marathon promised they will pay this year’s winners on time and avoid delays that prompted last year’s top finishers to boycott the event. Some of the 2006 runners waited nearly a year to collect all their money and some are still owed thousands of dollars, the Daily News reported Saturday. “It’s all the aftermath of last year’s treatment. It didn’t even remotely cross my mind to send anybody this year,” said Brendan Reilly, who represented the 2006 fourth-place finisher, Nuta Olaru. Konstantin Selinevich, who represented fifth-place winner Irina Safarova Salinevich, said the runner still is owed $2,700. Federer closes inNext week at the Pacific Life Open, the mark in peril is the 46-match winning streak put together by Argentine left-hander Guillermo Vilas in 1977. Roger Federer has won 41 in a row during a streak that dates to mid-August of 2006. The three-time defending tournament champion can reach 47 consecutive victories with another title at Indian Wells. The 25-year-old Swiss star says the consecutive winning streak record “would be very nice,” but insists that’s not going to be his focus when he begins play in the tournament on today. Federer has been No. 1 on the ATP Tour for a record 162 consecutive weeks. He has won five of the past six Grand Slams and nine of them in four years. BrieflyGermany’s Jenny Wolf broke a world record that stood for nearly six years and Sven Kramer of the Netherlands shattered a mark that didn’t even last a month. Wolf broke the record for the women’s 500 meters and Kramer broke the men’s 10,000 mark – both by significant margins – Saturday at the World Single Distances Speedskating Championships. Steve Fisher led a U.S. medals sweep at the World Cup halfpipe snowboard competition Saturday at Whiteface Mountain, while Olympic silver medalist Gretchen Bleiler won the women’s event. Clemson running back Ray Ray McElrathbey, who took custody of his 12-year-old brother last year, was suspended from the team for at least four practices because of academic concerns. Coach Tommy Bowden said McElrathbey return to the team after spring break if he gets his class work in order. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

War of malls heating up

Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! ARCADIA – Rick Caruso has studied the marketplace carefully and believes Arcadia can handle two malls and 2.1 million square feet of retail space.He is so confident of this judgment that he is willing to place a $400 million bet on it.But Caruso is also rolling the dice for the Westfield Group, which has reached the opposite conclusion.“It doesn’t make sense,” argued Westfield Vice Chairman Rich Green at a community meeting last week. “This market doesn’t have the capacity.”The conflict between Westfield, owners of the existing Westfield Santa Anita mall, and Caruso, developer of the proposed Shops at Santa Anita mall, often feels unnecessary, observers say.Political leaders have repeatedly urged the warring corporations to cooperate. Why, they ask, should Arcadia be subjected to a zero-sum struggle for market dominance when both companies can succeed side-by-side?But Westfield and Caruso appear to have a genuine disagreement over how much retail the market can bear. Caruso said he believes his project will be successful and make Westfield more successful. Westfield officials say they believe Caruso could ruin them both. With such divergent views, how can they cooperate?“It’s getting to be quite a donnybrook,” said Jack Kyser, chief economist for the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation. “A lot of retail stores are very cautious about putting retail too close to each other… But I think (Caruso) feels like there’s an opportunity there.”The decision about how much retail to allow around Santa Anita Park rests, for the moment, with the City Council. To assist them, the council will have the benefit of an independent economic analysis, due out next month. Both Westfield and Caruso can be expected to prepare their own reports on this pivotal issue.But the decision was largely made a decade ago. Facing flagging attendance, the racetrack’s owner asked the City Council to rezone the track’s south parking lot for commercial development. The council agreed.Since then, the track’s owner, Magna Entertainment Corp., has attempted to develop the property several times. Each time, the deal fell apart.The Westfield Group bought the Westfield Santa Anita mall in 1998, knowing that the parking lot next-door could one day become a competing mall. In fact, Westfield had a series of meetings with Magna owner Frank Stronach in hopes of being selected to develop the property.Those negotiations broke down for reasons that are now in dispute. Caruso cites the episode as proof of Westfield’s hypocrisy. If the Shops at Santa Anita is overbuilding, why did Westfield seek to develop the same property?Westfield claims the negotiations broke down because, in Green’s words, “It just simply didn’t make sense. We don’t think the market can handle the depth.”Assistant City Manager Don Penman said Westfield proposed a “power center” for the site – a development heavy on “big box” retail chains such as Costco and Best Buy.“That was not what Stronach wanted,” Penman said. “He wanted more high-end retail.” gene.maddaus@sgvn.com(626) 578-6300, Ext. 4444last_img read more

DONEGAL LEAGUE – ALL THE REPORTS, RESULTS AND FIXTURES

first_imgDonegal Junior LeagueReports Glencar Inn Saturday Division TwoDrumoghill F.C. Reserves 1 Curragh Athletic Reserves 4Drumoghill will wonder how they let this game slip so badly as they had dominated play for long periods of the game. The first goal arrived within minutes off kick-off when Justin Mc scored from the penalty spot after Dylan Irwin was fouled. Drumoghill fought back and were on level terms on the stroke off half time when Shay Mc Daid slotted home after some fine play by John O’ Kane. Curragh got their second on the hour when Dylan Irwin fired home from close range. Drumoghill pushed hard for an equaliser for the rest of the game but in doing so allowed Curragh the space they needed to exploit the Drumoghill defence. Gary Quinn added goal number three in the 85th minute with a simple tap in and Johnny Corcoran finished off the scoring in injury time with a fine volley giving the keeper no chance. Referee: John CoyleWatson Hire Division One Curragh Athletic 0 Kerrykeel ’71 F.C. 4Three first half goals from brothers Johnny Friel (2) and Mark Friel ensured all three points for Kerrykeel when means Kerrykeel are almost certainly safe while Curragh are condemned to Division Two for next season. In fairness to the young Curragh side they tried their best but were no match for a very experienced Kerrykeel who also had the experienced Paddy Mc Granaghan score a second half goal to wrap up victory. Best for Curragh were Gary Kelly, Tim Scanlon and Jason Sweeney. Referee: Mick Lagan.Old Orchard Saturday Division OneCastlefin Celtic Reserves 4 Glenree United Reserves 1Castlefin kept their survival hopes alive with a comprehensive home victory over Glenree on Wednesday evening.

Michael McHugh got the home side back into the game on 65 minutes when he dispatched a penalty into the corner.. And when it seemed as though Fintown might hold out Phil Boyle did well to win possession before laying the ball off to Martin Proctor who found Chris Mc Glanaghey and he did brilliant to run clear and equalise. Phil Boyle and Sean O’ Hara were best for Arran, team performance from Fintown. Referee: Seamus Mc GroaryCastlefin Celtic Reserves 1 Erne Wanderers 4Erne kept their title hopes alive after taking all three points away to Castlefin, though the score-line didn’t reflect the game. Castlefin had the better of the first half with Damien Mc Anenny having a great chance to open the scoring only for a good save from the Erne keeper. Mc Anenny had another chance on the half hour but his strike went narrowly wide. After a foul in the Castlefin box Erne were awarded a penalty which Barry Mulligan stepped up to calmly finish on the stroke of half time.

The home side started brightly and took the lead on 15 minutes when Martin Maguire headed home a Ryan Lafferty cross. Glenea looked to extend their lead but failed to take advantage of the chances that came their way and on 35 minutes were made to pay when St. Catherines equalised. Ryan Murray then saw his header from a free-kick hit the post and from the rebound Paul Muirhead drilled the ball home. In the 2nd half Glenea continued to press but like the 1st half failed to take advantage of their possession until 70 minutes when Neill Mc Geever headed home a Shane Coll corner.

Referee: Michael McFadden.Glenree United Reserves 2 Donegal Town Reserves 4(No Report Submitted)Orchard F.C. 2 Glencar Celtic 1Glencar had the better of the early exchanges and penned Orchard back with Cathal Gallagher causing Orchard problems. As the game moved on Orchard came close through John Boyle and Niall Bonner. The deadlock was broken on twenty five minutes when a Glencar Corner was not cleared and Seany Houston made a great run from deep to drive his shot to the top corner form inside the box. Glencar nearly extended their lead a few minutes later when Froggy Brown shot over from close in. Orchard got level on forty minutes when they won a free. Joe McCarron sent the free to the back post where Charles McLaughlin rose highest to score. The second have continued as the first with both teams fully committed. Orchard should have went in front when Niall Bonner turned the Glencar defence and keeper but saw his shot hit the post from six yards out and then cleared off the line. As the half wore on it was Glencar who came closest when a shot from Gallagher was turned around the post by Tommy McLaughlin in the Orchard net. In the seventy fifth minute Orchard got in front when Eddy Moore was upended in the box, up stepped Niall Bonner to slot the pen to the bottom right corner of the net. Orchard withstood some late pressure to hold on for the three points. Best for Orchard: Charles McLaughlin, John Boyle and Ciaran Gibbons. Best for Glencar: Cathal Gallagher. Referee: P MartinGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoKeadue Rovers Reserves 5 Drumoghill F.C. Reserves 0Keadue Reserves finished off their home games in League Two in style at Central Park on Saturday and with it guaranteed promotion to Division One. It was a decent day for football and Keadue were straight out of the blocks with an impressive start. They didn’t have to wait long with the opener coming on three minutes when Daniel Bonner rose highest to direct home a corner. It was 2-0 on seven minutes following some excellent play down the left involving Cian Boyle and Aidan Gillespie, Boyles’ shot was blocked by the keeper but he followed up to slot home the rebound. Keadue were knocking it around very well at this stage and could’ve been further ahead. After twenty minutes the home side were 3-0 ahead, Conor Greene with the goal. Drumoghill’s first chance of the game came on thirty three minutes when a shot from inside the box was well saved by Ben Boyle in the Keadue goals. At the start of the second half, with the advantage of the wind, Drumoghill had the better of the first ten minutes. Play was becoming scrappy overall however with the strong breeze dictating the pattern. Keadue upped the tempo with a few subs and on sixty seven minutes Adam Neely came close with a snap shot from close range saved by the keeper. On seventy minutes the game was concluded when Daniel Bonner got his second of the game, again from a header. Keadue made it 5-0 on seventy seven minutes when a good through ball was poked home on the run by Adam Neely. Towards the end Keadue did most of the attacking and had a few other efforts. They eased to victory in the end and sealed promotion and play Tullyvinney Rovers next Saturday needing just a point to be crowned champions. Best for Keadue were Daniel Bonner, Conor Greene and Cian Boyle while best for Drumoghill were Ethan McCready, Kevin Higgins and Richard Tinney. Referee: Andrew Mullin.Drumbar F.C. 2 Milford United Reserves 1The first half saw the home side dominate but go in 1-0 down at half time. Drumbar just could not make anything of several great chances. However the second half was better with the back four of Drumbar pushing further up the field and not giving Milford space to create any chances. Ciaran Nixon was dominating the aerial battle in midfield and worked tirelessly throughout. Gavin Bennett picked up a ball wide on the left and made a good run in from the wing and drilled a shot across the box past the Milford keeper to get the home team back on level terms. It took a late strike from substitute Keelan Heeney to seal all three points. The young 15year old took a wonderful first touch to beat his man on the right wing. He then got the ball back onto his right foot and laced an excellent shot across the goal to the top corner giving the Milford keeper no chance. What an entrance to senior football for this young man, he certainly showed no nerves taking on that shot! Best on the day for Drumbar United was Ciaran Nixon, however man of the match goes to the man who got the match winner Keelan Heeney.Mulroy Celtic 3 Cranford United Reserves 1Mulroy went into the game looking to secure a point to guarantee a play-off spot and duly obliged with a hard fought three points gained against the men of Cranford. Shaun Mc Govern opened the scoring when he pounced on a clearance, rattling the ball home from eighteen yards. Michael Sweeney doubled the lead when played through on goal and he finished nicely. Cranford pulled a goal back but the two goal advantage was restored through Packie Mc Elwaine who tapped the ball home at the back post. The second half passed without incident, Oisin Blaney kept Cranford in the game. Shaun Mc Govern excelled for the home side.Strand Rovers 3 Ramelton Mariners 0Strand Rovers are promoted to Division One of the Donegal Saturday League in just their second season of existence. Told to prepare for another year the Maghery men joined the League for the 2013/’14 season. Having learned the ropes last term the Stephen Barrett led outfit acquitted themselves well this season and now await the outcome of the match between Tullyvinney Rovers and Keadue Rovers Reserves next Saturday to see if they will yet get a crack at claiming League honours. Anything other than defeat will be enough for the Central Park lads however that may be easier said than done against an inform Tullyvinney at the Crossroads. Certainly one for the neutrals to enjoy. Whatever way it goes the Glencar Inn Saturday Division Two crown will be heading west this season.Brian Mc Cormick Sports Premier DivisionKildrum Tigers 1 Milford United 2Either of these two could yet finish third in the Premier Division as they have three and two games remaining respectively. In this head to head Milford ran out winners of a match played on Saturday evening at Station Road.Glenea United 2 Gweedore Celtic 1Glenea completed their home programme with a hard fought victory in this Gaeltacht derby and thus escaped the relegation trapdoor. The home side started brightly and took the lead on 3 minutes when Dean Gallagher headed home a Darren Mc Geever corner. Glenea extended their lead on 15 minutes when Padraig McGee converted from the penalty spot after a foul on Ryan McFadden. The home side continued to press but were unable to add to their tally and as the half progressed Gweedore came more into the game and went close when a Paul Gillespie effort was almost turned in by Daniel Devine. Gweedore pulled a goal back on 43 minutes when Colin Ferry’s cross from the right was stabbed home by Tomas Diver. In the 2nd half Glenea started well and went close with efforts from Darren Mc Geever and Aodhan Ferry. As the half went on the home side were content to defend deep and try to play on the break but despite having a lot of the ball Gweedore found it difficult to create any clear cut chances and it was Glenea that looked more likely to score. Best for Glenea were Kevin Mulhern and Dean Gallagher while Jamie Boyle was best for Gweedore Celtic. Referee: Mick LaganSt. Catherines 3 Cappry Rovers 1St. Catherine’s played host to Cappry Rovers in Emerald Park on Saturday evening. The game stated with both teams trying to get an early goal, St Catherine’s had an early chance but a shot from David Conwell went wide of the Cappry goal. St. Catherine’s then began to put pressure on the Cappry goal and they had a couple of shots but they came to nothing, Cappry had a shot on the St. Catherine’s goal but the shot was well saved by the St. Catherine’s goal keeper Michael Mullin. St. Catherine’s keeper Michael Mullin pumped a long ball to Stephen Gildea inside the Cappry box and he calmly slotted the ball into the bottom corner of the Cappry net. Cappry tried hard to get back on level terms and with thirty three minutes gone Aaron Kelly poked the ball home from about five yards out to make the scoreline 1-1 going into the half time break. The second half was only five minutes old when St. Catherine’s got a corner which was sent into the Cappry box and there was St. Catherines’ Shane O’ Rourke who put the ball into the Cappry net to put St. Catherine’s two one up on fifty minutes. Ryan Mc Closkey saw his shot smash off the Cappry crossbar before, with seventy five minutes gone, Conor O’ Rourke put St. Catherine’s three one up when he headed the ball into the Cappry net after a great cross from the wing.Watson Hire Division OneKerrykeel ’71 F.C. 1 Kilmacrennan Celtic 2Kerrykeel finished their season with a home to defeat to already promoted Kilmacrennan. Kerrykeel, who had the bare eleven, were up against it from the start but battled hard and kept Kilmacrennan to bay for most of the first half as a result of a string of saves from Shane Sandilands and a defence well marshalled by Paddy Mc Grenaghan and James Gallagher.Kilmacrennan opened the scoring on forty six minutes with Rab Sandilands finishing well from the edge of the box. It was two nil on fifty two minutes, this time Ryan Shields heading home after a great cross from Mousey Mc Laughlin. The home side got a goal back on eighty five minutes when Ciaran Mc Laughlin finished off a fine solo run from the half way line. Kerrykeel ‘71 would like to congratulate Kilmacrennan Celtic on their promotion to the Premier League. Great team effort from both teams. Referee: Paddy MartinWhitestrand United 3 Dunkineely Celtic 0Whitestrand United moved well clear of the automatic relegation places with the addition of these three valuable points to their season’s tally. A play-off against Raphoe Town for Division One status looks likely for the Mc Garvey Park residents.CT Ball Division TwoConvoy Arsenal 3 Bonagee United 1With Convoy capturing the league title already and Bonagee having sealed automatic promotion you would of been forgiven for thinking that this was going to be a dull encounter with nothing on the line. But with Bonagee the only team to have defeated Convoy in the league this year the home side were looking to even the score while Bonagee were trying to complete the double over the champions. Bonagee started really brightly and controlled the game in the opening exchanges. Convoy couldn’t get their football going at all and the first half finished scoreless with Bonagee having only a couple of half chances to show for all their hard work. The second half resumed with both teams battling it out in the middle of the park but Bonagee finally broke the deadlock in the 56th minute when Peter Mc Namee poked the ball home after a scramble in the Convoy box. This finally woke Convoy up and they went back to playing the sort of football that won the league. In a crazy 8 minutes Convoy turned a one goal deficit into a two goal lead. Firstly Ryan Carlin slotted home from the edge of the box, next he was sent through by a Lee Guthrie pass only to be taken down in the box. Johnny Robb obliged by sending the keeper the wrong way from the penalty spot to give Convoy the lead and to complete the turnaround Ryan Carlin broke the offside trap rounded the keeper and slotted the ball into the empty net. The game wasn’t over yet as only for two great saves from Lee Boyd in the Convoy net the last 15 minutes it could have been a lot more uncomfortable for the home side. But Convoy saw the game out and finished off the season with the perfect result. Best for Bonagee were Gary Patton and a lively Peter Mc Namee with Ryan Carlin involved in all three goals and Paul O’ Leary very solid in the back line for Convoy. Referee: Michael Mc Cafferty.ResultsGlencar Inn Saturday Division TwoDrumoghill F.C.
