Bombers blast past J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks

first_imgBy Bruce Fuhr,The Nelson Daily SportsFreshman point guard Garrett Perry had a breakout game as the L.V. Rogers Bombers blasted the J. Lloyd Crowe Hawks 76-44 in Kootenay High School Boy’s Basketball League action Thursday night at the Hangar.Perry checked in with 20 points, but it was his fine distribution of the ball that caught the attention of Bomber head coach Blair D’Andrea.“Garrett stepped up at the point guard position,” D’Andrea said. “He hasn’t been playing with a lot of confidence of late but tonight he distributed the ball well and hit a lot of his shots.”“He deserved the 20 points he got tonight,” he added.Bombers turned a close game early into an easy win, especially after struggling Tuesday against Mount Sentinel Wildcats.Jason D’Andrea led all scorers with 24 points, including three from three-point land. John Zak had 18 points before spraining an ankle.Maverick Seed was a force on the boards for LVR. Jesse Zak also left the game with an ankle injury.“I’m happy with my UN (United Nations) team on the bench,” D’Andrea said with a chuckle. “They (David Chen, Jae Tak and Leonard Batubura) all chipped in with valuable floor time.”LVR is idle until Feb. 4-5 when the Bombers host a four-team tournament. The event is combined with four girls teams.On the boy’s side are Mount Sentinel, Selkirk Storm of Kimberley and Kalamalka Lakers of Vernon.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more

Nitros explode for three goals to double Leafs 4-2 in Bavarian City

first_imgIt was a positive sign for a team struggling to find anything positive.The Nelson Leafs stayed stride for stride with the defending Kootenay International Junior Hockey League champs for 48 minutes before the Nitros offence exploded for three goals in a 10-minute span to double the Green and White 4-2 Friday in the Bavarian City.Keenan Haase, Jason Richter and Trevor Van Steinburg, with an insurance marker in the final three minutes of the game, rallied the top team in the Eddie Mountain Division to its league-leading 22nd win of the season. The goal by Haase came seconds after Blair Andrews gave Nelson a 2-1 lead midway through the third period.Jordan Busch on the power play gave Kimberley a 1-0 lead after one period.Austin Anselmo, also on the power play, tied the game for the Leafs in the second.Kimberley out shot the Leafs by a wide 30-19 margin — including a 14-7 advantage in the third period — making the night a busy one for Nelson netminder Patrick Ostermann who looks to the go-to guy in goal for the Murdoch Division club.Nelson, riding a three-game losing streak, host the Columbia Valley Rockies Saturday at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.The Leafs will be looking to avenge a 4-2 loss to the Rockies last week in Invermere.last_img read more

Alex Byrne signs new Galway United contract

first_imgGalway United are delighted to announce that Alex Byrne has signed a new contract with the club.The former Salthill Devon midfielder has spent the last three seasons at Eamonn Deacy Park.The 21-year-old has made 71 appearances for Galway United, scoring one goal for the club in the Playoff final against UCD in 2014.The Galway native has signed a contract extension until the end of 2017 SSE Airtricity League season.Galway United manager Shane Keegan has already added central midfielders David Cawley and Gavan Holohan to his squad for 2017 and he feels the re-signing of Byrne will prove to be another important addition.“I’m delighted to get Alex on board, he’s been with the club for a few years now. He’s progressing and heading towards an age now where he should really be looking to be coming into his prime so he can fulfil the potential that he’s got.“I’d like to think that we’ll see the absolute best of Alex. There really is bundles of potential in him. He’s determined to show everybody just how good he can be next season.“I think Alex will be the first to admit, regarding the impact he can make, it really is all about fitness. He struggled with injury last season and he was chasing his tail by the time he got back. Whereas this time, we had him in as part of our fitness tests a couple of weeks ago, he’s ready to hit the ground running. He’s already started (into a pre-season programme) and he’s planning to work very hard on that over the next four or five weeks.“Alex will be arriving in, in early January, already in good shape, ready to hit the ground running. I think, realistically, that’s all that has been holding Alex back from fulfilling that potential over the last few years, in that he probably hasn’t ever hit peak physical condition.“I think with the likes of Johnny O’Connor in our corner, he’s determined to make sure that we do get Alex in condition to allow him to show the full range of his abilities. I have no doubt that if he commits himself to getting into fantastic shape, he can have a brilliant season for us.”After signing his new deal with the club, Byrne told www.galwayunitedfc.ie that he is determined to make a big impact under Shane Keegan after enduring a frustrating 2016 campaign.“When we arrived back for pre-season I was still injured from the previous season, so it took me a little bit longer to get going,” Byrne explained.“I feel next year there is no excuses. I’m working with the new strength and conditioning coach already, having sessions in the morning, before we get working. I want to hit the ground running in pre-season and then when the season starts, we’ll be more than able for it.“Shane has brought in a lot of good players with a lot of experience. The competition is always welcome, otherwise players will become complacent, which you don’t want. You want a good, competitive atmosphere in training to get the best out of everyone.“I know what is required of me and what everyone expects of me too. I’m just looking forward to getting back into training on the pitch so I can show everyone what I can do.“I feel that the best is yet to come from me, so I’m looking forward to that.”print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

Sigerson Cup semi final: NUIG 2-12 DIT 0-15

first_imgCorofin’s Kieran Molloy, who will miss Saturday’s final as he will be in action for his club in the All-Ireland semi-final, put NUIG four ahead but DIT got it back to two with points from Sean Hurley and Kilian O’Gara. Points from Enda Tierney and Adam Gallagher seemed to make the game safe for NUIG. However, NUIG had to endure a nervous finish when Conor Madden cut the gap to a goal for DIT. But NUIG held out during six minutes of stoppage time to book their place in the final. Ref – Anthony Nolan (Wicklow) NUIG for their first Sigerson Cup final since 2003 when they held off a DIT comeback in heavy rain at St Loman’s GAA grounds in Mullingar last night. NUIG never trailed throughout the contest, and thanks to goals in either half from Sean Kelly (Moycullen) and sub Eoin Finnerty (Mountbellew Moylough), held on for a deserved victory. Scorers – NUI Galway: A Gallagher 0-4 (2f); S Kelly, E Finnerty 1-0 each; R O’Toole, E Tierney (1 ‘45) 0-2 each; P Cooke, O Gallagher, D Comer, K Molloy 0-1 each. DIT: S Hurley 0-4 (4f); C Loftus 0-3 (1f); K O’Gara 0-2; B Howard, S Dempsey, R O’Brien, C O’Reilly, T Corcoran, C Madden 0-1 each.NUI Galway – Tadhg O’Malley (Leitir Mor); Stephen Brennan (Mayo), Sean Mulkerrin (Oileain Arainn), Kevin McDonnell (Sligo); Colm Kelly (Donegal), Ruairi Greene (Killanin), Gerard O’Kelly-Lynch (Sligo); Cein D’Arcy (Caherlistrane), Peter Cooke (Moycullen); Enda Tierney (Oughterard), Owen Gallagher (Antrim), Adam Gallagher (Mayo); Brian Donovan (Limerick), Damien Comer (Annaghdown), Sean Kelly (Moycullen). Subs: Ronan O’Toole  (Westmeath) for S Kelly, Kieran Molloy (Corofin) for Donovan, Eoin Finnerty (Mountbellew Moylough) for O Gallagher, Ryan Forde (Annaghdown) for C Kelly, John Maher (Salthill Knocknacarra) for Greene. The Galway college led by 1-6 to 0-7 at the interval with Kelly’s goal coming just before half time after Adam Gallagher’s free taking had helped establish a 0-5 to 0-3 lead. DIT scored the last two points of the opening half however and then produced a good third quarter which saw them draw level at 1-9 to 0-12. NUIG were creaking, but the introduction of substitutes Kieran Molloy and Eoin Finnerty turned the tide and almost immediately Finnerty struck a huge blow for NUIG when he blasted home their second goal 12 minutes from time. Dublin Institute of Technology – L Stacey; A McGowan, B Power, R Shanahan; B Howard, R O’Brien, B Maher; T Corcoran, S Hurley; C Pearson, C Loftus, C Howley; C O’Reilly, D Kirby, S Dempsey. Subs: L Hughes for Dempsey, K O’Gara for Corcoran, L Hughes for Kirby, B Brennan for O’Reilly, D McAllister for Dempsey, C Madden for Loftus print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Emaillast_img read more

NATIONAL ROAD SERIES Round 3 Donamon GP

first_imgCOUNTY Waterford rider Conor Hennebry has moved into a podium position in the Cycling Ireland National Road Series after a hard-fought win in Roscommon on Sunday. The former underage hurler lined up for the 112km Donamon GP with three Viner Caremark Pactimo team mates – Matteo Cigala, Sean Hahessy and Aaron Kearney. All four were part of the five-strong squad that won the Irish County Rider Team Classification at Ras Tailteann in May, with 25-year-old Hennebry having also won the Kerry Group Ras Mumhan stage race in April.On a fast, hot 16km circuit around Donamon Castle, Hennebry and Hahessy worked hard to get into the break that stuck, nine getting away on the second of seven laps.An elite chase group, including Holdsworth Bikes’s Conn McDunphy and Cigala, briefly closed in on the break, but crossing the line with a lap to go the gap was out to nearly 2 minutes, as Hennebry mercilessly attacked his remaining cohorts.That proved the winning move, Hennebry soloing to victory, with Burren Racing Team’s Mark Shannon a tired second and Hahessy third.Hennebry said: “It was tough, it was riding full gas all day. I think we averaged about 44kph, and there was a fair bit of climbing in it as well. To average that on that course was tough for a day out, and it was surprisingly hot.He added: “The gap [from the break to the bunch] was still very small going on to the third lap, so we all had to ride and fully commit. The gap slowly grew from 25 seconds up to about two minutes. We all kept riding anyway, but I could see a few guys missing a few turns – they were starting to get tired, so I decided to try my luck.“I attacked the last time through the finish line and kinda dangled with a lead of 50 metres or so for two thirds of a lap, until Mark Shannon of Burren Cycling Club came across to me. That was a great help to me because he’s a good engine. He was well able to pull turns.  It came down to a bit of a sprint coming up the final hill and I just about held on.”Hennebry will race next in the National Criterium Championships in Mullingar on Friday night, and will return to the same town on Sunday, July 15 for round 4 of the National Road Series at the Mullingar GP.The win elevates the Portlaw man to joint third in the National Road Series standings with reigning champion Sean Lacey. Lacey, Hennebry’s team mate, had led the table before Sunday’s race, but the Tralee man is set to miss the remainder of the season through injury.The new league leader is Sunday’s 12th Jamie Blanchfield on 81 points, with Cigala in second on 76 points.Cigala is now set to join UK team Holdsworth Bikes for opportunities to compete in bigger races with the likes of Sean McKenna, Damien Shaw and McDunphy.The Women’s National Road Series race at the Donamon GP came down to a bunch sprint won by reigning champion Eve McCrystal.The Garda CC rider beat newcomer Aine Donegan (Scott-Orwell Wheelers) and National Road Series league leader Katharine Smyth (Ballymena Road Club), who retains her position despite the defeat,Donegan remains in second position overall, 15 points adrift of Smyth, with McCrystal creeping on to the podium after her second win in as many races. Nessa Rochford (De Ronde Van Cork CC) is fourth and Niamh O’Donavan (TC Racing) is 5th.Round 4 of the Cycling Ireland Men’s and Women’s National Road Series is the Mullingar GP in Mullingar on Sunday, July 15, hosted by Lakeside Wheelers.
