Thompson scored four in the ninth to put the contest away.And the B-C-event game didn’t look good early for Winters. Thompson struck for three in the opening end forcing Winters to play catchup.However, it didn’t take long for the veteran skip to rebound. Winters scored a single in the second before stealing a pair in fourth and a single in the five to establish a 4-3 lead.After Thompson tied the contest by scoring one in the sixth, Winters struck for a deuce in the seventh before holding off Thompson for the narrow win.This is the second time in three years Winters had skipped a team to the B.C. Scott Tournament. The West Kootenay rink included Allison Hurley and Loreen Amonson of Nelson and Lisa Nevakshonoff of Castlegar.

BPL PREVIEWS

Posted on

first_imgBOURNEMOUTH VS WEST BROMDespite losing five of their last six games in the Barclays Premier League, Bournemouth can plan for a second season in the top flight thanks, mainly to three straight wins in early March. Albion have lost five and drawn two of their last seven league outings. They last won in early March against Manchester United while their most recent win on the road came at Everton in February.ASTON VILLA VSNEWCASTLE UNITEDAston Villa are down and Newcastle United couldfollow them if they lose this game. Last weekend’s 1-0 home win over Crystal Palace took the Magpies out of the Barclays Premier League relegation zone, a point above Sunderland and two clear of Norwich. Villa have lost their last 11 league games, equalling a club record, and will set a new low with another defeat.CRYSTAL PALACE VS STOKE CITYGoals have been Palace’s problem. They have netted just 36 in 36 games. Only Norwich (35), West Bromwich Albion (32) and Aston Villa (27) have fewer this season. However, their record fewest is the 33 they netted in the 2013-14 campaign. Stoke have gone five league games without a win and have lost twice to Palace already this season, in the league and FA Cup.SUNDERLAND VS CHELSEASunderland have lost only one of their last eight games in the Barclays Premier League but they have also won just one while drawing six. Chelsea have won only one of their last four league games though, on Monday, Guus Hiddink’s men ended Tottenham’s hopes had of winning the league with a 2-2 draw.WEST HAM VS SWANSEA CITYWest Ham have lost only twice at home this season, while winning eight and drawing seven. The old stadium has been treated to 50 goals in 17 games, 30 by West Ham and 20 from the visitors. Swansea, meanwhile, are safe for another season after winning five of their last nine Barclays Premier League games.LIVERPOOL VSWATFORDLiverpool’s record at home to Watford is impressive. In eight home Barclays Premier League games the Reds have won seven and lost just once, in August 1999. Yet in December Watford profited from Liverpool’s dreadful opening at Vicarage Road to continue their remarkable rise with a fourth consecutive Premier League win.last_img read more

CYCLING: CLARKE BREAKTHROUGH AT RAS DHUN NA nGALL

Posted on

first_imgCormac Clarke has put in a breakthrough performance on the queen stage of Ras Dhun na nGall today, going on the attack before the feared final climb of the race, Glengesh Pass, and taking the stage and overall victory. He also wrapped up the climbers’ and junior classifications in the three-day.Clarke, a Newry Wheelers junior riding with a Cycling Ulster selection this weekend, and Liam Blanchfield (Bray Wheelers) were simply too good for the rest of the field, emerging at the finish at the top of the climb almost two minutes ahead of the next man.That third placed rider was none other than New Zealand junior Sean Hambrook who had held the yellow jersey going into this morning’s stage. Hambrook, who rides with VCC Morteau in Eastern France, had come to Ireland with his team mate, first-year U23 rider Darragh Zaidan from Dublin. Hambrook won the stage two uphill TT on Saturday morning and looked very strong when taking second in a two-up sprint finish behind Cormac Clarke in yesterday’s afternoon road stage. It appeared he would be very hard to dislodged form the yellow jersey on today’s 61-mile final stage.But Clarke and Blanchfield took the fight to him, with the Newry teenager taking a chance and winning big; going home with the best win of his career after his most impressive performance ever on a bike.Clarke showed great courage in seizing the initiative early today, going clear in an eight-man group with only around five miles of the stage completed.That group pulled out a gap of 40 seconds almost immediately and while it would stubbornly stay like that for the next five or six miles, the elastic to the peloton soon snapped and the gap rocketed to two minutes and then three. The riders up front with Clarke were, among others: Matt Blayney (North Down), Liam Blanchfield (Bray Wheelers), Thomas Fallon (Black Rose), Jonathan Gibson (Unattached) and Ian Richardson (UCD).The breakaway combined very well to build their lead but around 40 miles into the stage it began to fragment with Fallon and Richardson paying the price for perhaps doing too much work early on and losing their places.By the time the final ascent of Glengesh Pass started up to the summit finish, there were only four riders left in the break. And almost immediately the road went it, it was Clarke and Blanchfield who pulled away together.Behind them, the yellow jersey and his one team mate Zaidan had not given up. By the time they reached the foot of the climb they had pegged the gap back to 2:20 and it was not inconceivable that Hambrook might motor up the climb after the leaders and that the pair up front might crack.However, while Hambrook is a classy rider who has been pre-selected for the New Zealand team for the World Championships later this year, there was to be no fairytale ending for him on the weather-battered Glengesh. Clarke and Blanchfield showed no signs of weakening at all up front. Hambrook rode all but a handful of riders off his wheel on the climb as he tried desperately to protect his lead, but he only managed to shave around 20 seconds off the gap to the two men out front.Coming towards the top of the climb, Clarke – who had started the day second on GC just 13 seconds down – dropped Blanchfield. The Bray man fought very hard to stay in touch and actually caught and passed Clarke again just before the finish. But the teenager had plenty in the tank and put in a strong finishing gallop that put four seconds between him and Blanchfield on the line.Not only did he wrap up the stage and overall win, but his taking the final KOH prime also won him the climbers’ classification. Cycling Ulster also won the team prize, won the junior category and two of the four stages and one second on a stage with Clarke and were second in the U23 category with Marc Potts.Blanchfield may have come up short in his efforts to win the stage today, but his breakaway heroics moved him up to second, with third on the stage Hambrook also finishing third on the final GC. Organised by John Curran and all the team from Fourmasters CC, it was another weekend of great racing that further cements the event as one of the toughest and most prestigious fixtures on the Irish calendar open to all but the A1s.Stage 4: Ardara to Glengesh 60.9miles1) Clarke,Cormac ULS Cycling Ulster Slane 2h37’24″2) Blanchfield,Liam BRA Bray Wheelers 2h37’29″ @05″3) Hambrook,Sean VCC VCC

PENSIONER TELLS HOW HE FOUGHT OFF GANG WITH BRUSH HANDLES

Posted on

first_imgA pensioner last night revealed how he and his brother fought off a gang of burglars using brush handles.Eric and Jim Steele saw off the gang who tried to break into their home in Manorcunningham late on Monday night.The brothers, aged 68 and 75, became the latest victims of a spate of rural crime that is sweeping the North West. The men, who are both farmers, were preparing to go to bed at their home on Main Street in Manor when the gang of four struck.Speaking from his home last night, Eric (pictured right) told Donegal Daily the first they knew their house was under attack was when they spotted shadows.“We were sitting in the living room and I saw feet in the shadows underneath the kitchen door.“Jim went to the door between the living room and the kitchen and he grabbed a brush shaft. “There were four of them. They had masks on and big coats and Jim gave one of them one hell of a bleaching. They turned and ran out the door. Sure Jim could still go a few rounds with Sonny Liston.“We shouted after them but they disappeared. They didn’t get anything,” said Eric.The Steeles, who own considerable tracts of rich farming land across East Donegal, are well-known in farming circles.The brothers still work the land each day and are respected as hard-working farmers across the community.Eric said he suspected the gang didn’t quite know what they were letting themselves in for when they entered their home. “I think they knew what they were doing but they didn’t think we would try to stop them.“They picked on the wrong boys. We might be getting on years but we can still look after ourselves. They thought we would be easy pickings.“There was nothing here to get with anyway. I reckon the boys came in from Derry.”The two farmers are the latest victims of an epidemic of burglary across Donegal and rural Ireland Greta Lilly, 96, was punched in the stomach when burglars broke into her home and stole her handbag in Buncrana, Co Donegal ten days ago.Another Donegal pensioner, 86 year old Margaret Kelly was robbed at her home in Convoy last week when burglars robbed eight homes in the area in one afternoon.And 78 year old Phyllis McGee was robbed for the second time in just two months last weekend when three men forced their way into her home in Pettigo, Donegal last weekend before escaping with cash.Two more Inishowen pensioners were attacked last night.

CONCERN THAT DONEGAL CONSTRUCTION WORKERS NOT COVERED BY ‘SAFEPASS’ OVERSEAS

Posted on

first_imgSinn Féin Councillor Gary Doherty has called for increased cooperation between training bodies in Ireland and their counterparts in the UK and beyond. Cllr Doherty says that the certificates awarded in Ireland by FETAC in conjunction with bodies such as Solas are not being recognised by employers in Britain.Cllr Doherty said “I have been contacted by numerous people who are very concerned at the situation at present. These people are struggling to find work to feed their families. They are being forced to go to the UK to look for work in the construction industry which is still moving in parts of Britain. “They are doing courses in Ireland to get the relevant certificates to work on site, however on attaining employment in the UK they are being told they don’t have the relevant accreditation to work and are being turned away. This is not acceptable.”To work on a construction site in Ireland you must do a Construction Skills Certificate Scheme or CSCS which entitles you to a FETAC award, otherwise known as the ‘Safe Pass’.Cllr Doherty says he has heard reports of men turning up for work in London, Liverpool and Aberdeen with the safe pass only to be told it is not recognised in the UK.“I am also aware that other Irish certificates such as the MEWP or Mobile Elevated Work Platform certificate which allows work on cherry pickers and cranes etc. is not recognised by British employers. “I am calling for Solas and the Education and Training Boards to liaise with their counterparts in the Construction Industry Training Board in the UK to overcome this problem. I see no reason why Irish certificates cannot be accepted in Britain so it boils down to a simple lack of communication. It is certainly unfair for people to pay for training courses in Ireland only to find their tickets aren’t worth the paper they are printed on in England.He concluded “It is a big enough decision for these people to leave their families to go to work across the water, we cannot allow the situation to continue where they are then being turned away from work because we haven’t ensures that our qualifications are recognised outside Ireland.” CONCERN THAT DONEGAL CONSTRUCTION WORKERS NOT COVERED BY ‘SAFEPASS’ OVERSEAS was last modified: March 11th, 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:CLLR GARY DOHERTYCONSTRUCTION WORKERSdonegalSAFEPASSlast_img read more
