Morton’s fountain of youth too much for Ted Allen’s in Men’s Over-35 final

first_imgBy The Nelson Daily SportsCaleb Morton was to quick, and to young for Ted Allen’s as the Bia Boro striker scored three times to lead the second-half surprise of the Men’s Over-35 League to a 4-1 victory in the Nelson City Soccer Final Sunday afternoon at the Lakeside Pitch.The victory completed the rags to riches story for Bia Boro, which finished the Spring/Summer League with a dismal 2-7 record.Morton gave Bia Boro, which used the same formula for success for the second straight week — scoring early and often then hold onto the lead— all the goals it would need, scoring the first three markers for the winners.Rick Cutler added the other first half marker for Bia Boro while Brian Cutts replied to give Ted Allen’s some form of life.In the second half it was the goalkeepers, and a little Lady Luck on the part of Bia Boro, that kept the score the same.Ted Allen’s Cam Kuch and Al Faraguna each drilled shots off the iron as the Red Side tried desperately to get back in the game.Jackson’s Hole, Spring/Summer winners, defeated Red Dog 5-1 to capture the Consolation final.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more

Three-game weekend set concludes preseason for Leafs

first_imgIt’s only September and already Leaf head coach Dave McLellan likes what he sees in his Kootenay International Junior Hockey League club.“Phase one is training camp, and we’re done that now,” McLellan said Thursday prior to a three-game exhibition weekend.“We’re now into phase two and I’m pretty happy with stuff that happened in (Wednesday’s) exhibition game — we battled back to tie — and our returning players.”Nelson, scoring a 4-4 tie against Beaver Valley to begin the exhibition campaign, travels to Creston Friday before concluding the preseason at home against the Thunder Cats (Saturday) and Beaver Valley Nitehawks (Sunday).McLellan is pleased with the defence that has a solid core of returning players in Darnel St. Pierre, Patrick Croome, Robson Cramer and Austin Seaman.Up front, Blair Andrews, Austin Lindsay, Nelson Minor Hockey graduates Nolan Percival and Sam Weber, Rayce Miller, Aaron Dunlap and Alec Wilkinson return. Adam Maida is the early candidate for starting goalie between the pipes.“If Wednesday’s game is any indication, the fans can expect to see a physical game,” McLellan said when asked about this weekend’s games.“We carried the play, had a good up-tempo pace. We were good in our own zone and were able to rally in the third period.”Despite getting a late start on the rest of the KIJHL teams, McLellan has been working diligently with his junior contacts to fill out the balance of the team.“This is a work in progress,” said McLellan.McLellan said fans may see a few affiliate players in the lineup during the early part of the season as the Leafs continue to find the right players to fill out the roster. “You never know who might end up here coming out of Junior A teams plus I’ve got to finalize a couple of trades I’m working on to add to the mix,” said McLellan, already pleased with the working relationship with Kootenay Ice Major Midget coach Rob Wright.“The start is the toughest part of the season especially at the Junior B level. You really don’t know your team until a week or two.”Nelson opens the KIJHL regular season Friday, September 12 at home against Beaver Valley.last_img read more

Defeat for Colaiste Einde in Under 16 Boys League Final

first_imgUnder 16 B Boys All Ireland Schools League Final St Oliver’s Drogheda (Louth): 61 Colaiste Einde (Galway): 44 National Basketball Arena, TallaghtWATCH BACK: Oliver’s of Drogheda drove home to a memorable Under 16 B Boys All Ireland Schools League title this afternoon with a 61-44 point win over reigning Subway Schools Cup champions, Colaiste Einde of Galway.While the Galway side were hoping to scoop two All-Ireland titles this year, St Oliver’s had drastically different ideas and from the start, took the reins of the game with a fast-paced, driving offense and a tenacious defence.These two sides are no strangers to each other this season, having previously met in the Subway Schools Cup semi-final which Colaiste Einde won, but revenge was certainly sweet today for a well-drilled and on-form St Oliver’s side.Superb displays from Wede Esajobar, Clinton Ofodile and Josh Ola for St Oliver’s sent them into the lead early on, as they chipped in some great scores to have a ten-point cushion (17-7) at the end of the first.They kept control in the second, limiting Colaiste Einde to just seven points, as they extended their lead with Ofodile, Esajobar and Ola all increasing their tallies, while Zain Timajo worked brilliantly on defence to get some vital interceptions to lead 30-14 at half time.Colaiste Einde weren’t done though, and settled more into the game in the third quarter. Cup MVP Malik Thiam had a huge quarter, bagging eight points for the Galway team, while James Parnell, Ben O’Sullivan and James Webb were also on hand to try and close the gap. Again, captain Ofadile, Mark Alao and Ola responded well at the other end, and managed to stretch their lead back out as the clock ticked down to lead 48-30 going into the last.Time was not on Colaiste Einde’s side as the fourth got underway, with Oliver’s laying down the marker with six quick points from Timajo, Ofadile and Esajobar. Thiam, Webb and Parnell continued to work hard at the other end, but the mountain was just too big to climb and St Oliver’s were crowned deserving All Ireland League champions.ST OLIVER’S DROGHEDA: Muhammad Saod, Zain Timajo, Wede Esajobar, Clinton Ofadile, Josh Ola, Mark Alao, Damien Dooley, Emmanuel Ezumah, Brandon Barry, Adam Rooney, Sean Murray, Domatas Paulauskas, Graham King Abor.COLAISTE EINDE: James Webb, Lewis Ferrer, Shane Befula, Uyi Uyiosa, Ben O’Sullivan, Christian Alletsee, Dominic Matei, Prezemyslaw Siwak, James Parnell, Romain Gadioux, Malik Thiam, Neil Jennings.MVP: Clinton Ofadile (St Oliver’s)print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Banner season for Whitewater Ski Team

first_imgIt’s also safe to say that growth isn’t going to be stopping anytime soon.“We sent six of our kids to the BC Games in Kamloops this season, and we also sent one racer, Henry Leischman, to the U16 Nationals in Ontario,” Henderson said.“It’s a significant first for us that we’re incredibly proud of.”In addition to these milestones, Whitewater Ski Team traveled far and wide for the regular Nancy Greene and Provincial race series’, taking young skiers to compete both in towns as close as Salmo, Rossland, and Grand Forks, and further afield to Kimberley, Whistler and Banff.The zone finals at Whitewater were also a great success, bringing 200 young athletes to Nelson for a day of competition, fun and sportsmanship.“We had a ski cross track, mini downhill course, speed trap, a long jump, and a parents vs kids dual slalom in addition to the regular events,” says Coach Henderson. “It felt like a festival on skis!”The Whitewater Ski Team wishes to thank Whitewater Resort for being such a gracious host, the parents and coaches for their dedication and the skiers for training and competing hard throughout the season. Sending skiers to the BC Winter Games, taking the Nancy Greene program on the road and hosting the zone finals are just a few of the accomplishments this season by the Whitewater Ski Team said coach Dylan Henderson.Henderson made the comments after Whitewater Ski Team recently completed its “biggest year yet.”“There was a lot of snow falling, which sometimes made training a challenge,” Henderson said. “But the kids really enjoyed skiing the powder and the steeps alongside race training. It’s just classic WH2O.”With 150 athletes and 17 coaches this year — 110 of those racers being in the under 10 years old Nancy Greene program, the team can claim the largest roster in its history.last_img read more
