first_imgAssistant coach Todd Alexander said after Sunday’s victory that the team was able to recover after the Navigators tied the game in the second period and the team effort as a whole was better compared to Saturday night.“It was better effort and attitude. We had a bit of a lax in the second period when we were down on ourselves again and we were having a tough time controlling our emotional roller coaster that we have going on here with our young guys,” he explained. “It’s tough when you get into junior hockey and you’re playing with older guys. The team that can maintain their level headedness through three periods usually gives themselves a better opportunity. We did a little better job of that tonight gathering ourselves up after that second period and coming out and finishing the game hard.”Another contributing factor in the win was the commitment to staying disciplined in the game. In Saturday’s contest the Huskies nullified three man advantage opportunities as they took penalties on the power play.- Advertisement -“Discipline was a lot better. Last night [Saturday] we negated three power plays with bad decisions after the whistle that there was no need for. Those are scoring opportunities for you that you just can’t give away when you work so hard to get one and you push it away with a stupid decision.” Alexander said.Despite facing 37 shots in the game, goaltender Daimon Derouin was sharp and steady between the pipes.“They kept the shots to the outside which was awesome. It definitely helps. There was a couple where they snuck in but for the most part it was to the outside so I didn’t feel as busy. It makes it a lot easier. It’s what we try to work on.” he stated.Advertisement Scoring for the Huskies in the tilt were Cayle Bell (3), and Shawn Wilson.The Huskies will take on the Navs for the third time in three games as they’ll be in Peace River on Friday night. They’ll return home to take on the Grande Prairie JDA Kings the following evening at 8 p.m.last_img read more

first_imgHow does it feel?How does it feelTo be without a homeLike a complete unknownLike a rolling stone ?#WATP— Joey Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 22, 2016 Joey Barton, 33, is set to swap Turf Moor for Ibrox Joey Barton has given Rangers a verbal assurance that he will sign for the Ibrox club, it is understood.The 33-year-old free agent had a 12-month offer on the table to stay at Burnley but has decided to go with the longer-term security offered by the Glasgow giants.He will now pen a two-year deal after being impressed by Mark Warburton and his Light Blues set-up.The former Manchester City, Newcastle and QPR player met with the Gers boss last week while being shown round Ibrox and the club’s Murray Park training base.Barton had hoped his move north would signal a return to European action but has not been put off joining the Scottish Championship winners despite seeing their Europa League hopes evaporate with Saturday’s 3-2 defeat to Hibernian in the final of the Scottish Cup.He now becomes Rangers’ fourth summer signing, joining Accrington Stanley pair Josh Windass and Matt Crooks as well as former Liverpool midfielder Jordan Rossiter.Warburton will see the signing as a major coup as he prepares to do battle with Celtic and their new manager Brendan Rodgers next term.Barton was named Burnley’s club player of the year as he helped lead Sean Dyche’s side back to England’s top division as Championship winners.He has now given Rangers the nod following a day of speculation about his future, sparked when the one-cap ex-England midfielder took to social media to post some cryptic tweets.The first was posted online shortly after 11pm on Sunday evening and quoted lyrics from Bob Dylan’s hit ‘Like a Rolling Stone’, ending with “#WATP” – short for ‘we are the people’, a chant often heard being sung by the Ibrox faithful.Then at 2pm on Monday, he also wrote: “Tough decision but it’s now made. Onwards and upwards from here.”He added “#Rollupandspendyourlastdime” – a reference to lyrics from the Roy Orbison song ‘Penny Arcade’, another favourite of the Rangers support. Tough decision but it’s now made. Onwards and upwards from here. #Rollupandspendyourlastdime— Joey Barton (@Joey7Barton) May 23, 2016 1last_img read more

first_imgTHE ‘Cant Pay, Won’t Pay’ campaign has tonight hit out at Fianna Fail over proposed amendments to the septic tank charges.In a statement, a spokesman said: “It has come to the attention of the Can’t Pay Won’t Pay group in Donegal that Senator Brian Ó Domhnaill, speaking in Seanad Éireann, proposed a number of amendments to the Water Services ( Amendment) Bill 2011.“Apparently one of the amendments being proposed by Senator Ó Domhnaill, if passed, would have meant a €200 levy on every household every seven years. “This flies in the face of every statement that Fianna Fáil and Senator Ó Domhnaill have been issuing recently on the issue of the septic tank registration charge.“If it is true that Fianna Fáil are making those proposals, then they have to explain how it is that the model they are proposing would mean people being billed every 7 years, whereas the proposal from government is that every household with a septic tank should pay a one-off registration fee of €50.”CAMPAIGNERS HIT OUT AT FIANNA FAIL SENATOR was last modified: November 24th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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)last_img read more
