first_imgIn the men’s final last night, Team Sherrard had their way with Team Hansen. The Sherrard rink broke things wide up early scoring two in the second end and three in the third. Skip Dan Sherrard says everything went well over the weekend and avoided a few close calls in the early stages of the tournament.“We had a good weekend. You come up here and you’re not exactly sure who you’re going to be playing against or what the ice is going to be like,” he says. We had a couple real close games to start that could have gone either way. We came out pretty hot both games today, it’s what we were hoping for.”Lauren Jenkyns of the St. Albert team took top spot in the women’s portion of the tournament. She says the team dynamic was great throughout the weekend and they hit the shots they needed in the final.- Advertisement -“We just came out, we were all very on. We were very focused and supporting each other when things went wrong,” she states. “We were well matched, it kept it close. There was a few mistakes on both sides and we were just able to capitalize on them when it counted.”Both teams will move on to play in nationals later this year.last_img read more

first_img1 Northern Ireland captain Steven Davis has been forced to withdraw from Friday’s Euro 2016 qualifier in Romania.The Southampton midfielder has been battling to prove his fitness since a hamstring injury forced him off in the first half of the Saints’ Premier League win over Leicester last weekend, but has finally admitted defeat.The team will now travel to Bucharest on Wednesday evening without their inspirational skipper, who has played every game since inheriting the armband almost three years ago.Davis’ absence represents a huge blow for Michael O’Neill’s side, who are the surprise leaders of Group F after kicking off their campaign with three successive wins.A point in Romania would see them remain at the summit until at least the next round of fixtures in March.In light of the injury, winger Niall McGinn said: “No-one does more than Davo. He’s our captain, he’s definitely our leader on the pitch and he’s done so well for us for a number of years.“He came in to the team hotel on Tuesday because he’s been with his club having scans, he was just chilling and taking it easy but there’s no doubt he’ll be hugely disappointed not to have made it.“It’s a massive miss for us but there are other players who come in and do a good job.“It will show the strength in depth we have if we can cover for him.“He brings so much with his performances alone and he helps bring up everyone else around him to those standards.”Goalkeeper Roy Carroll added: “Steven has been fantastic since I came back into the set-up. He’s never missed a game.“But you can’t take a chance on a player of his quality. We don’t want to make the injury worse if he isn’t 100 per cent and we have other players who can come in and give 100 per cent.”O’Neill, who had already lost forward Jamie Ward and full-back Ryan McLaughlin to injury, must now replace Davis as captain and in the centre of the park.Brighton defender Aaron Hughes led the side for a decade before Davis and would be an obvious candidate to step in, but he has also got question marks over his match fitness after suffering an ankle problem.Gareth McAuley is another option, though turned down the chance to lead the team out in Greece last month on the occasion of his 50th cap in deference to Davis.In midfield, O’Neill can choose from the likes of Sammy Clingan, Paul Paton and Corry Evans, as well as uncapped Rochdale man Matthew Lund who was called up as squad cover on Tuesday.

first_imgSCOTTISH police are planning extra security for Celtic’s Donegal-based fans when they start travelling to Glasgow tomorrow for the final day of the SPL season on Sunday.Tension is already high following an attack on Neil Lennon at Hearts on Wednesday and the arrest of two bomb suspects.Celtic play Motherwell at Parkhead on Sunday, while Rangers travel to Kilmarnock. Walter Smith’s side are one point ahead of Celtic at the top of the table and must drop points and Celtic must win if the Hoops are to have a chance of winning the title. Rangers are odds-on favourites with the bookies to retain their title.But once again it is matters off the pitch which are making all the headlines.And Scottish police are planning extra patrols along the main routes through the west of Scotland from tomorrow as a large contingent of Celtic and Rangers fans make their way to Glasgow.Security will be stepped up even further after the games and on the routes back to the ferry ports at Stranraer and Cairnryan. Officers don’t want Old Firm fans to clash before or after the games.Up to 7,000 Irish-based Celtic fans will make the trip to Glasgow this weekend, most of them by bus and ferry. Around 500 of them will be from Donegal.Ahead of the weekend, Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond has appealed for calm and an end to the sectarianism which has increased in recent months.Neil Lennon’s agent says incidents like this week’s attack by a fan at Tynecastle will not drive the Celtic manager out of the Glasgow club.“I think now it’s getting to the stage where he will sit down in the summer with Celtic and the security and go through the whole scenario of what’s going on,” said Martin Reilly. “Obviously, he is a wee bit shaken by what happened.“But I don’t see them driving him out the door.”A man appeared in private at Edinburgh Sheriff Court charged with breach of the peace and assault aggravated by religious prejudice following the incident during Celtic’s 3-0 win over Hearts.Celtic chief executive Peter Lawwell has called for “vile, sustained and relentless attacks” on Lennon and his club to be addressed by Scottish society. And the Scottish Football Association, the Scottish Premier League and Hearts have begun investigating the security breach.“I know fans can get on the pitch area at certain parts of the game, but to get into the technical area is unbelievable.”On Thursday, Strathclyde Police revealed that they are investigating a suspicious package found at Celtic Park, while two men have been detained by police investigating parcel bombs sent to Lennon.Reilly admitted that these and incidents earlier in the season were having a “horrendous” effect on the former Northern Ireland midfielder’s life, with even his parents being under guard.“He is a very strong character, but it’s getting on now,” said the agent.“These incidents are coming quite frequently now.“He is going to have to sit down and have a right good think about it and go from there, but I’m sure, once he gets a taste of some success, it’ll be a new chapter and he’ll just want to get on with it again.”Reilly blamed certain elements of the media for putting the spotlight on Lennon and “trying to drive him out the door”.“All he wants to do is get on with his job, but there is certain quarters of the media that won’t leave him alone,” he said. “They’ve always got some agenda against him.“They are either obsessed by him or have a personal vendetta against him.“I am not going to glorify who they are, but there are certainly ones out there who constantly write about what he is up to off the park rather than what he is doing on the park as a manager, which has been really successful this season.”Reilly thought that Lennon aroused strong emotions because he was a winner, similar to former Rangers striker Nacho Novo.“He has got the same kind of thing for the Rangers fans as Nacho Novo had to the Celtic fans, because they are good at their job,” said the agent.“People who know Neil as a person know he isn’t the kind of figure that the press are making him out to be.“Neil is a very passionate guy about football especially and about his family and his country, but there is certain people in the media that just want to write things that are probably not true.“There is a rule for Neil Lennon and a rule for everybody else. He has brought the fans back to Celtic in their droves and they are singing his name.“A lot of people say he’s no angel, but he doesn’t bring a lot of things on himself. He does not bring this on himself.”DONEGAL HOOPS FANS WARNED AHEAD OF TRIP TO GLASGOW FOR SPL TITLE DAY was last modified: May 13th, 2011 by gregShare 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

However, the school principal K. Sagar termed it a “friendly” punishment. “They were not strong slaps but mild and friendly ones. We will also talk to the parents. We don’t allow corporal punishment in the school. The girl is weak in studies and doesn’t complete her assignments,” Mr. Sagar said, adding that the teacher chose this form punishment to improve her performance in school. The incident took place at the Navodaya Vidyalaya in Thandla town here and the girl’s father, Shivpratap Singh, told police that she was slapped 168 times between January 11-16 for not completing her homework.The girl is a student of Class VI at the school.He told police that the school’s science teacher, Manoj Kumar Verma, on January 11, asked his daughter’s classmates to slap her as a form of punishment and 14 girls slapped her two times every day for six days.Mr. Singh also stated in his complaint, filed a couple of days ago, that his child was unwell and therefore was unable to complete her homework. He alleged that the school was aware of the child’s illness. He also told police that his daughter fell ill due to fear and distress and refused to go to school, following which she had to be admitted to a local hospital.Thandla police station in-charge S.S. Baghel confirmed that a complaint had been received but added that no injury was found during medical examination conducted on the girl. “We had received a complaint.
