Leafs restore power to power play to dump Spokane 5-1

first_imgA bit of tweaking to the power play proved to be the difference as Nelson struck for three extra-strength goals en route to a 5-1 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League victory over the Spokane Braves Saturday night at the NDCC Arena.The win was the first in a home-and-home series between the two Murdoch Division clubs.The rematch is Sunday in the Lilac City.Trailing 1-0 after one period, Nelson went to work in the second frame, scoring two special-teams goals to take over the game.“I like the way we worked out power play tonight,” said Leaf coach Dave McLellan. “We re-worked (power play) this week. . .. I like the fact we had traffic at the net and battled hard throughout.”“We dressed three lines, but really only played two-and-a-half for most of the game,” McLellan added. “So you’ve got to give our guys a lot of credit for tonight’s win.”Rayce Miller scored twice to spark the offence — both goals coming on the power play.Matt MacDonald, on a highlight reel goal, unassisted, Timothy Nichols and Sam Weber also scored for Nelson.Sean Collins gave Spokane a 1-0 lead.Nelson out shot the Braves 46-38 in the game to make a winner out of Leaf netminder Joey Karrer. The lone goal came off a teammate’s skate late in the first period.Nelson, 22-10-2-1, remains five points behind Murdoch leading Beaver Valley Nitehawks.The defending KIJHL champs, which suffered a 2-1 road loss Friday to Spokane, pounded Grand Forks 12-3 Saturday in Fruitvale.BLUELINES: Nelson played the game with only 14 skaters, including Kootenay Ice affiliate player Ainge McGeady Bruce. The Leafs hope to have defenceman Patrick Croome and winger Dylan Williamson back in the lineup next week. Forward Michael Rand, out of the lineup with a chest infection, could be back for Sunday’s game in Spokane. . . .Leaf coach Dave McLellan continued to work the phone right up until the BC Hockey roster midnight deadline Saturday with no luck.last_img read more

Irish U16 Girls Basketball team qualify for European 1/4 finals

It’s the first time that two Irish squads have made top-eight in a single European Championship summer, following a quarter-final appearance by the U18 Women’s squad in July. The U16 squad includes 3 girls from the Maree Club, Alison Blaney, Dayna Finn and Maeve Cannon and all three scored in last night’s win.Ireland’s lead was forged in the second quarter. Niamh Masterson hit a triple before Maeve Cannon threw an assist for Enya Maguire and hit a jump shot herself in a game-breaking 9-0 run. It was Ireland’s best shooting half of the tournament with 44.1% field goal accuracy.There had been nothing to separate the sides in the first quarter and an 8-2 run from the English had them right back in the hunt in the third. It took two layups inside a minute from Annaliese Murphy and Abby Flynn to quell the comeback – Flynn’s contribution ensuring all 11 fit players contributed to the scoreboard.Dayna Finn’s jump shot early in the fourth quarter restored a 10 point advantage and big shots were vital as field goal accuracy fell off. Murphy’s triple with 4:41 left was exactly what her side needed and Finn saw Ireland home with five more points to complete her double-double. It was another gritty performance as Ireland confirmed their top-five ranking in the tournament for both steals and rebound. Next up for the Irish girls is a quarter final meeting with Poland tomorrow.Ireland: D. Finn* (10), E. Maguire* (7), A. Blaney* (2), B. Power Cassidy* (6), M O Seaghdha* (2), N. Masterson (3), M.

All Blacks skipper ‘prickly’ on eve of crunch Wallabies Test

first_img0Shares0000Kieran Read will lead New Zealand’s fightback in the second Bledisloe Cup Test against Australia. © AFP / Marty MELVILLEAUCKLAND, New Zealand, Aug 16 – All Blacks captain Kieran Read warned he was in a “prickly” mood Friday as he demanded a marked improvement in discipline and defence for Saturday’s Bledisloe Cup decider against the Wallabies in Auckland.At stake is not only the All Blacks’ 16-year grip on the cup, but also the defence of a phenomenal record at Eden Park where they have not been beaten in 42 Tests since 1994. Another Australian triumph would also mark the first time since 2011 that the All Blacks have lost two matches in a row and, after their recent draw with South Africa, it would be the first time in 260 Tests since 1998 they have gone three successive matches without a win.Wallabies’ coach Michael Cheika has stuck with his winning formula from Sydney a week ago, while the All Blacks are still tinkering with their preferred line-up.Read cut a stern figure as he led the All Blacks through the captain’s run pre-game training session on Friday.Referring to his “prickly nature”, the All Blacks skipper said: “If you don’t do that you’re not going to get a response.“It’s a do-or-die game… it’s our discipline and our ability to defend early that’s going to be key. They put pressure on us through that last week so we have to respond.”Coach Steve Hansen, who will be marking his 100th Test in charge of the All Blacks, has been emphatic in spelling out his priorities with the World Cup number one and then the Bledisloe, which he suggested was a learning exercise.“They’re going to test our resolve to step up to the plate and we’ll learn a lot out of it and march on to the next occasion,” he said.– Fortress Eden Park –The Wallabies have not won at Eden Park in 18 games over the past 33 years, a dismal statistic which coach Michael Cheika has turned into a challenge.“There’s no point in hiding from it,” he said.“We know that that’s a big challenge but if you want to make change, one person has got to say, ‘Okay, this is going to change’. Then the next person will join in and the next person will join in.“You’re allowed to understand the history of the event and also the game, the trophy and also the venue, to make it ultra-important.”Despite being outplayed last week, Hansen has insisted the situation was like 2015 when the All Blacks were well beaten in Sydney and bounced back with a five-tries-to-one victory in Auckland.Australia, however, made sweeping changes to their line-up between the Tests four years ago while Cheika this time has made only one, with Adam Coleman in for the injured Rory Arnold.Hansen has made five changes including the axing of the battle-hardened Ben Smith, Owen Franks and Rieko Ioane.He used the word “dumped” but also said that with an eye on the World Cup they would probably have been rested anyway to see how replacement wings George Bridge and Sevu Reece, along with prop Nepo Laulala, handle a pressure game.The Wallabies last beat the All Blacks in New Zealand in 2001, when they sneaked home 24-23 in Dunedin.0Shares0000(Visited 15 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
