City League Roundup: Schenley win creates four-way tie in City League

first_imgLEADING THE SPARTANS— Running back Jerome Mathews sprints upfield on the wet turf at Cupples Stadium. KEY INTERCEPTION —Deandre Black of Schenley intercepts a pass in front of Tyrail Morgan in the Oliver end zone after the Bears had gotten down to the Schenley three-yard line. Look for someone to drop their second contest of the year whenever Perry and Oliver face off in this year’s football version of the “Battle of the North Side.” This game is scheduled for 3 p.m. on Friday at Cupples. Oliver (3-1) came into the game against Schenley (3-1) as the only undefeated team left in the league. But Spartan senior running back Jerome Mathews was determined to make certain that would not be the case as his team got past the Bears, 6-0, at Cupples Stadium Sept. 26. The Schenley win creates a four-way tie at the top of the standings in the City League. Perry and Brashear join the two with identical marks of 3-1.center_img After a quiet first half, neither team committed a turnover until the 10-minute mark in the third quarter. In fact, there were five committed in an approximate six- minute span. The last was an interception by Schenley’s DeAndre Black in the Oliver end zone after the Bears had gotten down to the Schenley three-yard line. This helped set up a drive in which Mathews led Schenley on an 11- play, 80-yard drive that he capped off with a seven-yard score with close to 11 minutes left to go in the game. In that drive, he carried the ball eight times for 40 yards and was on the receiving end of a 27-yard reception that put the Spartans in Oliver territory. “I just followed my O-line and they got it going for me,” said Mathews. “They did their jobs and I took advantage of those opportunities.”Schenley’s defense held Oliver’s Dante Jeter to only 4/13 for 69 yards and two interceptions. They also held him to 12 carries for minus 30 yards. As a team, they rushed for 28 total yards. David Marshall led the Bears with two carries for 40 yards.“I can’t stress more of how much I commend these guys on how mature they play,” said Jason Bell, Schenley’s head coach. “They came out and played with intensity and passion. With this effort, they deserved to win.”Other games:Perry 13, Peabody 0Once again, Perry was able to rely on their star running back, Richard Lowry, and their defense to lead them past Peabody. Lowry scored on a 4-yard run in the first quarter to give his team a 6-0 lead. However, it wasn’t until 7:13 remaining that he would put the Highlanders away for good with a 25-yard touchdown catch from his quarterback Greg McGhee. Lowry carried the ball 24 times for 84 yards in the game.Peabody’s DeVaughn Jemison was held to 2 of 7 for 9 yards and two interceptions. They committed 13 penalties for 65 yards. Most surprisingly—Highlanders’ running back Jaylen Coleman was held to only 35 yards on nine attempts, just one week after his near 200-yard performance against Langley.Brashear 42, Allderdice 18Brashear’s Bruce Patterson continues to crumble each defense he faces. He led all rushers with 146 yards on 15 carries. Also lighting it up on offense for the Bulls was quarterback Henri Chatman. He threw for three touchdowns to Manasseh Garner (9 yards) and Eric Lynch (43 and 24 yards). He finished with 7 of 13 passes for 147 yards. Manny Reed had a 79-yard punt return for a touchdown, giving him three (kick or punt) in as many games.Allderdice’s Mike Pfleger completed 4 of 11 passes for 48 yards with two touchdowns and an interception. His touchdowns were of 7 and 20 yards to Jared Davis and Jay Barlow, respectively. ’Dice’s running back Patrick Ferguson carried the ball 24 times for 102 yards.(Follow our continuing coverage and add your comments of District 8 football to our website at www.newpittsburghcourier.com.

Top flight curlers on display when Nelson hosts 2016 Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championships

first_imgThe calendar may say August, but organizers of the 2016 Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championships are already busy preparing to roll out the red carpet for the best curlers in the province.The Nelson Curling Club was awarded host club for the provincial men’s tournament during the spring.Organizers have been working with Curl BC to make the 2016 Championship, set for February 10-14, the best of the best.“For all of those who do not follow or curl, this prestigious event is the forerunner to the Canadian National Men’s Curling Championship . . . also known as the Tim Horton’s Brier, which will be held in Ottawa in March 2016,” said Vivian Benedetti of the Nelson committee.As the precursor to the Brier, the Canadian Direct Insurance BC Men’s Curling Championship hosts the best 16 men’s teams from throughout the province.Nelson is no stranger to hosting provincial events.Twice the Heritage City club has played host to major tournaments — the BC Interior Curling Championships in 1980 and in the mid 1990’s, BC Senior Women’s and Masters Playdowns to name a few.Nelson is also no stranger to curlers excelling at the provincial and national stage.The likes of George Beaudry in the Senior’s Division comes into play when people talk about Nelson Curling success, winning the provincial crown in 1987.There’s also Tara Richardson, at the Junior Curling level, Lois Cutler, who led her Senior Ladies rink to a Bronze Medal. And then there was the Dean Horning rink, with Nelson’s own Fred Thomson at third, along clubmate Rob Nobert and Don Freschi of Trail who captured the Purple Heart in 2005.Thomson also skipped Nelson to a pair of Provincial Mixed title in 2003 and 2004 with Heather Griffiths, Brent Pihowich, Allison Hurley.Back to defend the Canadian Direct Insurance 2015 crown, is Vernon’s Jim Cotter.Cotter, third Ryan Kuhn, second Tyrel Griffith, lead Rick Sawatsky and coach Pat Ryan defeated Team Joanisse 7-6 in the thrilling final in Vernon.It was the second win in as many days for Team Cotter, which outlasted Brent Pierce 7-6 in 11 ends.The week of the February event, teams arrive Tuesday of the event for a practice round and banquet.Opening draw in the triple-knockout event goes on the Wednesday along with opening ceremonies.There are three draws per day with the Page Playoffs beginning Saturday.The Final is slated for the Sunday. Both Page Playoff semi final and Championship contest are being telecasted live on Sportsnet TV.However, avid curling fans will want to take advantage of the on-ice viewing and curling lounge viewing.Benedetti said hosting the Canadian Direct Insurance Championship is a huge undertaking for the club.The event needs many volunteers to ensure the success.Anyone interested in volunteering should contact Tim Beecham of Garry Meadows at:  [email protected] or [email protected] Business owners looking to provide sponsorship should contact Benedetti or Brenda Fraser at:  [email protected] [email protected]last_img read more

Using a biological approach to restoring soil function

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest Farmers that are looking to find the balance between a lower cost of production and better nutrient placement while maintaining the health of their soils may consider a strip-tillage system.Many thoughts and ideas about this type if farming were shared in early August at The National Strip-Tillage Conference in Bloomington, Illinois.“Farmers need to understand ecological principals and how to make their soil function properly, using biological approaches before we use a physical and chemical approach to restore soil function,” said Ray Archuleta, NRCS regional soil health specialist. “It’s not about strip-till, it’s not about no-till and it’s not about conventional-till, but it’s about understanding the whole ecosystem processes and how the soil works and how the soil wants to be approached to stimulate nutrient cycling, water cycling and solar energy capturing to help reduce inputs and enhance soil function.”A paradigm has been formed in recent years where farmers look at their soils from a chemical and physical perspective. Archuleta is hoping to reshape that paradigm so farmers see themselves as more of an ecological producer than a strip-till producer.“The current paradigm we have is wrong, dysfunctional and has caused a lot of major problems and has caused many producers to go broke,” Archuleta said. “The end results of relying on petroleum-based inputs are uncleaned water, massive erosion, no ecosystem restoration and we are paying dearly with weeds that don’t respond to certain chemicals, losing biodiversity for pollinators and contributing to climate issues because of too many acres of bare soils.”Dale Buendorf, who farms in Albert Lea, Minnesota, was one of the attendees of this year’s National Strip-Tillage Conference and he said he got the message from Archuleta about growers replicating what Mother Nature does.“Healthy soil doesn’t want to be disturbed, it wants to be covered,” Buendorf said. “One of his other points was that everything is connected. The soil without plants, bugs, bacteria and fungi is just geology, so we have a living, breathing thing out there to work with and he sees that integrating living cover crops into our production systems in agriculture as a great way to mimic what nature is trying to do out there.”Those types of results can be realized in a strip-till system that minimally disturbs the soil, unlike a more invasive broad acre tillage practice. Another benefit to strip till is placing nutrients directly in a fertility zone, while leaving a good majority of the soil alone.“This will be our 8th year of using strip-tillage on our 1,800-acre farm and we have really seen some great improvements in soil structure and consistency across the field,” Buendorf said. “We’ve dabbled in some cover crops, but as I head back home after this year’s conference I’m beginning to think that more cover crops are the way to go.”last_img read more

Agent Viru

first_imgThe Indian team’s departure from Bangalore to Delhi meant that my interactions with Agent Viru would be temporarily disrupted. I grabbed the last opportunity I had before the team was cordoned off by the national Capital’s paranoid security. As Agent Viru boarded the flight with the rest of the team, he saw me greeting him, working undercover as the flight attendant. He evaded any further eye contact and went straight to a seat in the economy class where I was serving.The players dropped their guard as soon as the flight took off. Piyush Chawla was on his PSP, beating the heck out of the machine, which must have been an unusual experience for him. Virat Kohli emerged from the toilet with his hair freshly spiked, designed to cause serious bodily harm to any fly that may sit on it. Fortunately for the flies, Munaf Patel’s gaping mouth as he slept was far more attractive. S. Sreesanth was flirting with the airhostesses, for some odd reason, with his iPod plugged into his ears disturbing communication signals with the air traffic control. Over the next two and a half hours, I caught up with Agent Viru for five quick chats and overheard some other conversations, a synopsis of which forms this week’s report.Everyone asked what Chawla is doing in the team? Apparently, it’s more than just ‘C’ being close to ‘D’, as Viru had told me earlier. With Ashish Nehra injured, the other bowling option makes one senior bowler very insecure. “The Masala Dosa in our team is better than Butter Chicken. And Butter Chicken knows it. He and his close buddy Captain Cook won’t let Masala Dosa in, unless Nehra remains injured and our situation becomes desperate,” Agent Viru told me cryptically.advertisementThere’s a feeling that Doug Bollinger’s “injury”, once M/s Lee, Tait and Johnson struck form, making way for Michael Hussey to bolster the middle order, seems too convenient to be true. Also, most believe that the pretence of being civilised, a recently acquired fa?ade, has also been thrown out of the window going by the way the Aussies ruffled Tillakaratne Dilshan. “Thank God. Now I can recognise Ricky Ponting,” Viru told me on his way to the toilet.Kevin Pietersen’s (KP) injury is beyond suspicion, although, probably not caused on the field. “Don’t lift any watermelon,” KP said to a confused Ian Bell who was, incidentally, seeking dinner suggestions. Bell figured it only when he saw a soft drink commercial with KP jumping around with watermelons. “I took those watermelons home after the shoot,” Viru told me. “They were juicy but also heavy,” he added with raised eyebrows.There were laughs galore about Bangladeshi fans who pelted stones on the West Indies team bus. “Their fans are like their bowlers, always off target,” Yuvraj Singh said generating more laughs than Kamran Akmal’s face does. Kamran was also briefly discussed with Harbhajan Singh saying that Kamran should try catching the ball with his mouth. “Who needs hands when you have a mouth like that,” he added.Munaf was the butt of most jokes. He was watching 7 Khoon Maaf with his wife when Kevin O’Brien started blasting the English bowlers. Munaf was called back midway through the film to watch him bat. “Abey, couldn’t you have seen the highlights?” Agent Viru asked him jokingly. Privately, though, he chuckled mischievously as he told me, “When you look like Munaf and perform like Munaf, it’s not wise to take your wife for 7 Khoon Maaf . Why give her ideas?”- The writer was formerly known as the Fake IPL Player. He will observe the 2011 World Cup through Agent Viru’s eyes.last_img read more

Juan Martin del Potro overcomes Grigor Dimitrov to retain Stockholm title

first_imgFourth seed Juan Martin del Potro put himself in contention for the ATP World Tour Finals when he successfully defended his Stockholm Open title on Sunday, defeating top seed and 2013 champion Grigor Dimitrov 6-4, 6-2.The Argentine, who secured his first title since he lifted the trophy in Sweden last year, dominated the final with his serve, notching up nine aces and saving all four break points he faced.Fittingly enough, Del Potro ended the championship with a big serve in the deuce court down the middle, eliciting an error from his opponent. When the ball landed in the net, Del Potro’s arms rose in celebration.”I played the best match of the week against Grigor today. Unlucky for that, sorry Grigor,” Del Potro said. “It’s amazing to come back and hold this big trophy and hopefully I can come next year as well.”Not only did Del Potro capture his 20th ATP World Tour title but he launched himself into contention for the season-ending finals in London next month. The 29-year-old will move up to 14th in the ATP’s Race to London with 2,135 points, 470 behind Pablo Carreno Busta who currently occupies the final qualifying spot.last_img read more

Russian athletes Skorobogatko and Nikolayev allowed to compete as neutrals

first_imgTwo Russian athletes – 1,500m runner Yegor Nikolayev and 400m runner Alexander Skorobogatko – have been allowed to compete internationally as neutrals, the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) said in a statement.”The IAAF Doping Review Board has agreed that the applications of two Russian athletes have met the exceptional eligibility criteria to compete in international competition as neutral athletes in 2018 while the Russian national federation (RusAF) remains suspended,” the statement read, reports TASS news agency.However, a thing to note is that neither Nikolayev nor Skorobogatko have yet qualified for the European Athletics Championships scheduled to be held in Berlin on August 6-12.”A total of 74 Russian athletes have so far been declared eligible to compete as Authorized Neutral Athletes in 2018,” the IAAF said, adding that “68 applications have been denied and five athletes have had their ANA status revoked.”In December 2016, the IAAF decided that until the membership of the All-Russia Athletics Federation (ARAF) was restored, Russian athletes who met all the anti-doping criteria could participate in international tournaments as neutrals. Those willing to become neutrals are to file individual applications that must be approved by IAAF officials.On Friday, the IAAF Council refused to reinstate the ARAF at its meeting in Argentina’s capital of Buenos Aires.”The Council noted significant progress by the Russian Federation in meeting the outstanding requirements, and in some cases going above and beyond what was required, but has decided that the Russian federation’s suspension will remain in force until its next meeting in December,” the IAAF said.advertisement(With IANS inputs)last_img read more
