(AP Photo/Miguel Morenatti)MADRID — It was an odd scene at Benito Villamarin Stadium in Seville: The few visiting English fans were chanting “Ole” at every touch of the ball by their squad, while the home Spanish crowd was jeering its own players.It was only halftime on Monday and the Spaniards had already seen their national team concede three goals for the first time ever in a competitive match at home. By the end, they were witnesses to La Roja’s first home loss in 15 years.ADVERTISEMENT Raheem Sterling scored twice and Marcus Rashford once in a stunning first half for England, which held on to beat Spain 3-2 in the UEFA Nations League to get back in contention for a spot in the final four of Europe’s newest competition.In the other match in League A, Iceland lost to Switzerland 2-1 and was relegated to the second-tier League B.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSGinebra beats Meralco again to capture PBA Governors’ Cup titleSPORTSJapeth Aguilar wins 1st PBA Finals MVP award for GinebraSPORTSGolden State Warriors sign Lee to multiyear contract, bring back ChrissSterling ended his three-year scoring drought with England with goals on each side of Rashford’s strike before the break, leading England to its first win in Spain since 1987.“For a young team, they put in an incredibly mature performance, withstood pressure reasonably well and should all be really proud,” England coach Gareth Southgate said.

Only the group winner moves on.Spain started well but its high defensive line struggled against the speed of England’s young forwards. The visitors were clinical, scoring on all of their attempts on goal. Spain totaled 25 attempts and 70 percent of possession, and blew it.England opened the scoring early in a fast breakaway. Rashford sent a nice ball into space for Sterling, who entered the area with only the goalkeeper to beat and found the top of the net with a superb finish. It was his first goal for England since 2015, and first ever away from Wembley.“It was a beautiful feeling,” Sterling said. “I put a lot of pressure on myself to try to get in the box and score. Sometimes it works for you and sometimes it doesn’t, but it’s my position to score goals so I need to keep that going.”Rashford added to the lead in the 30th after a perfect through ball by Kane, entering the area and finishing with a shot from near the penalty spot.Sterling got on the board again from close range after Kane’s set-up in a move which started with a nice pass by Ross Barkley over the top of the Spanish defenders.Spain got on the board in the 58th through a header by substitute striker Alcacer, who has 10 goals in his last six games with club and country. Ramos’ last-minute goal also was a header.RELEGATED ICELANDIceland needed to beat Switzerland for the first time to avoid relegation but the Swiss got off to a two-goal lead and held on to victory.Switzerland routed Iceland 6-0 at home in the team’s opener. It moved into a tie with Belgium for first place in Group 2. The Belgians have a game in hand. Spain suffered its first loss in a competitive match at home since 2003 against Greece. It hadn’t lost at home in 38 matches, and had not conceded three goals in a home match since 1991 in a friendly against Hungary.“It shows how tough it is to come here and win and we have done that,” England forward Harry Kane said. “We came out of the blocks firing, great pressing.”Paco Alcacer scored Spain’s first goal early in the second half and Sergio Ramos claimed the second on the final play of the match.“We have to admit we played very badly in the first half,” Spain coach Luis Enrique said. “We made a lot of individual mistakes.”Despite the loss, Spain stayed ahead in Group 4 of League A with two more points than England after three matches. Croatia, with a game in hand, was five points behind Spain.ADVERTISEMENT Gretchen Barretto’s daughter Dominique graduates magna cum laude from California collegecenter_img Gov’t to employ 6,000 displaced by Taal Lights inside SMX hall flicker as Duterte rants vs Ayala, Pangilinan anew Japeth Aguilar embraces role, gets rewarded with Finals MVP plum LATEST STORIES Tim Cone, Ginebra set their sights on elusive All-Filipino crown NBA Preview: It’s the Warriors, and then everyone else Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard PLAY LIST 02:14Carpio hits red carpet treatment for China Coast Guard02:56NCRPO pledges to donate P3.5 million to victims of Taal eruption00:56Heavy rain brings some relief in Australia02:37Calm moments allow Taal folks some respite03:23Negosyo sa Tagaytay City, bagsak sa pag-aalboroto ng Bulkang Taal01:13Christian Standhardinger wins PBA Best Player award Don’t miss out on the latest news and information.

Flyers Hunt on verge of 100th win

first_imgTroy Hunt has been a fixture in the crease for the Fort St. John Flyers for 12 seasons and with that comes a number of career milestones. The Flyers all-time leader in wins is sitting on 99 for his career and may have the chance to reach 100 tonight should he start against the Dawson Creek Canucks.Hunt said despite being with the club as long as he has, it’s not surprise to him that he keeps coming back as the sport has always been a part of his yearly routine.“I’m not too surprised that I’ve played this long. I just really enjoy it. It’s been a great group of people to play with over the last 12 years and some amazing people are involved in this organization. I’ve played hockey every winter of my life so it’s not too shocking that I’m still kicking at it,” he said.- Advertisement -As for why he keeps coming back year after year, Hunt says it’s still fun going to the rink a few times a week considering the bonds he has with various members of the team.“My wife asks me that every September. I don’t know what else I would do with my spare time although the spare time is getting smaller and smaller every winter. It’s still somewhere that I want to be a couple of nights a week and the camaraderie with the boys in the dressing room that’s huge and the bus trips,” he said.Reflecting back on his years with the Flyers he said the 100 win milestone is something that makes you think of the seasons past while recognizing the time and energy put in.Advertisement “It’s pretty neat. It kind of makes you step back and realize how many games you’ve played and the success we’ve had as an organization in Fort St. John is pretty good. It kind of points that out and makes you realize that we’ve had a pretty good run here and some pretty good years. It’s near to have a number to the work that you’ve put in over the last 12 years,” Hunt said.Hunt and the Flyers will begin a home and home series with the Dawson Creek Canucks tonight at the North Peace Arena at 8:30 p.m. with the clubs meeting in a rematch Thursday night in Dawson Creek.last_img read more

Update from the Elks Speedskating Club

first_img**SubmittedFort St. John Speed Skaters have been busy travelling to the new Olympic oval in Richmond over the last couple of weeks.First off the weekend of Jan 23rd, 24th, and 25th was the B.C. Provincial long track competition.  Twelve local skaters went down to compete.  All did very well in their divisions with many medaling.  Team coach Richard Stickel was happy with the overall performance.  He stated “usually at a meet of this size you have some skaters doing well and a couple struggling.  This might have been the first one where everyone was performing well.”  He was particularly pleased with Mitch Kupchanko who had suffered an injury the week before in Dawson, “Mitch had a badly pulled hip flexor and wasn’t able to start very effectively but he really gutted it out and showed great determination.  Without the injury he would have undoubtedly medalled.               – Advertisement -The week-end of Jan 30th,31st and Feb 1st, was Junior Championships/ Canada Cup #2.  Locally Jolea Bilodeau and Desiree Mitchell competed.  A couple of members that now train out of Calgary were also in attendance, Elyce Henry and Tim Gladysz.  Also notable was Kaylin Irvine and former member of the local club who re-located to Calgary with her family a few years ago.  For Bilodeau and Mitchell the week-end was about getting more experience at Olympic Style Long Track Skating and improving times.  Coach Stickel said that he was happy with their results “Olympic style is all about strength, many of the competitors there are training full time, the girls have been doing very this year.  We can use these results to plan for future competitions, those two work so hard and have improved so much this year.”  Both Henry and Gladysz are seniors hoping to work their way onto the national team.  Stickel says Gladysz has skated so well the last two years “ he is a sprinter specializing in 500 and 100m races, his only problem is that Canada is so strong right now, there as so many good skaters”.  Elyce Henry had a great week-end especially her fourth place finish in the 1000M.Kaylin Irvine also had a great week-end.  Irvine, who graduated last summer started the year training and competiting in short track.  In December she decided to change her focus to long track.  This week-end she finished third overall.  Any other year that would mean that she would be on the Canadian Junior team and compete and the world juniors, however this year there was a change in the team criteria and so she will have to wait for the announcement of the team later this week. ResultsProvincial Mass StartEryn Stickel    11th Bantam girls regional twoBen Maxfield Silver Midget boys regional oneColton Johnson Silver Midget boys regional twoConnor Johnson 12th Juvenile boys regional oneKyle Lyth 19th Juvenile boys regional oneKelsey Johnson Silver Juvenile girls provincialJamie Lee Juvenile girls provincialKathryn Stickel Gold Juvenile girls regional oneMitch Kupchanko fifth Junior Men provincialKayne Dressler seventh Junior Men provincialDesiree Mitchell sixth Junior Women provincialRick Lee Gold Master Men Blast_img read more

first_imgArranmore Fin Swimmers departing Burtonport slipway.Well done to all the fin swimmers who took part in Saturday’s Sheephaven SAC Annual John Mc Garvey Memorial Fin Swim.At 3.00pm 32 participants struck out from Burtonport on the ebbing tide that drove them across to Arranmore in 1 hr 50 minutes. The Sheephaven snorkelers were joined by past members of the club, members of the Rosses Snorkelers and well-knwon long-distance swimmer Anne Marie Ward.Weather conditions were the best encountered over the years of going to Aranmore, with sunny skies and crystal clear waters. Diver Paul McCabe cuts his 44th birthday cake. He doesn’t look a day over 43!The swimmers were supported by 3 boats, their Dry Coxswains and their crews, along with the presence of the Bunbeg Coastguard, for which the participants are very much appreciative.Thanks to the Mc Garvey family who saw us off from Burtonport and later on were on Aranmore to welcome us home, to Jerry Early for his hospitality and especially to Hugo Mc Fadden for leading the day’s activities.An event such as this relies heavily on the generosity of the guys who towed and took time to fuel the boats, but in particular Joe Neely who provided support in his own boat, thanks to all involved.All funds raised go the Sheephaven Search and Recovery Funds, for which the Unit is truly grateful. Finally Happy 44th Birthday to Paul Mc Cabe and a big thanks to Anne Boyle for organizing his wonderfully decorated birthday cake, which was truly fitting for the day that was in it.Aranmore Fin Swim, preparing to enter the Black Hole. DIVERS ENJOY BEAUTIFUL CONDITIONS FOR ANNUAL JOHN McGARVEY MEMORIAL FIN SWIM was last modified: June 22nd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:AranmoreDiversdonegalPaul McCabeSheephaven Sub Aqua Clublast_img read more

JUDGE ORDERS ARREST OF WOMAN FOR NOT PAYING CREDIT UNION LOAN – AFTER 13 WARNINGS

first_imgA Judge has issued a bench warrant for the arrest of a businesswoman after giving her 13 warnings to pay back a credit union loan.Judy Hannon was due to appear at Letterkenny District Court today to answer a summons for failing to comply with an installment order from 2010.Ms Hannon, 48, had been ordered to pay back €30 per week on a loan of €5,241 from Letterkenny Credit Union. However Ms Hannon, of Marcella House, Gortlee, Letterkenny, has paid back just €1,640 in those four years – the last payment being in February of this year.Solicitor for Letterkenny Credit Union, Mr Patsy Gallagher, said his client only brought members to court as a last resort.He said “It is not the policy of the credit union to seek committal orders but their hands are tied for over two years now.“There is a deliberate attempt not to engage and on the 11th hour to make a sporadic payment. The last payment was in February.“This simply cannot go on. Letterkenny Credit union has spent a lot of time and money intrying to get this woman back on track,” he said.Mr Gallagher also referred to the fact that Ms Hannon was a founding director of the Moolicious Food Company which had received significant grant aid.Defense solicitor Frank Dorrian said his client had genuinely mixed up her dates and was due to be in court.He said “The prospect of sending this lady to prison might not be a good fit considering her circumstances.”Judge Paul Kelly said he could not make a committal order against Ms Hannon unless she was present in court.Instead he issued a bench warrant for her arrest but warned that he will be disposed to a committal order in the case.Speaking after the case Mr Gordon Randles, General Manager of Letterkenny Credit Union, said that unfortunately this is an extreme case where all attempts to have on going communication with the member were exhausted.“The Credit Unions objective is at all times to work with members with respect to their financial position, but in this case the member has repeatedly failed to adhere to court orders and also to provide financial information requested by the court.“Letterkenny Credit Union only engage in the legal process for debt recovery as a last resort.”JUDGE ORDERS ARREST OF WOMAN FOR NOT PAYING CREDIT UNION LOAN – AFTER 13 WARNINGS was last modified: October 2nd, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:arrestcredit unionjudy hannonletterkennynon paymentlast_img read more

CHURCH WON’T STAND IN WAY OF CINEMA SHOWING 50 SHADES – IF THEY EVER GET A COPY!

first_imgBuncrana Parish priest Fr Francis Bradley has said the Church will not stand in the way of a local cinema showing Fifty Shades of Grey – if they ever get a copy of it.Fr Bradley was reacting to yesterday’s claims that Cinema Inishown, which is located in St Mary’s Hall, had ben banned from screening the steamy movie.It later transpired that the reason Christian Grey won’t be appearing in Buncrana is because the cinema committee could not agree a deal with the distributor. The cinema committee lease the hall from the Diocese of Derry.But Fr Bradley said they will not interfere with what went on at the cinema.“I don’t know the operating of the cinema at all,” he said. “It’s a free world in which people make decisions themselves. The parish would have an interest in what would happen there, but the cinema makes its own decisions.”However, Fr Bradley said he did not intend to see the film himself. “It is not something that I would recommend. There is enough violence in the world without people indulging in more violence. If you are asking my recommendations, I’d say no.”Fifty Shades of Grey goes on release on February 14th. CHURCH WON’T STAND IN WAY OF CINEMA SHOWING 50 SHADES – IF THEY EVER GET A COPY! was last modified: February 6th, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:buncranaCinema InishowenFifty Shades Of GreyFr Liam Bradleylast_img read more
