News, Weather and Classifieds for Southern New England NORTH PROVIDENCE, R.I. (TurnTo10) – A Rhode Island man, who has overcome adversity in his life, is hoping to make a difference for others. This weekend he’s completing his training as an EMT, despite facing his own physical challenges.
Jesús Malagón 27/06/2018 The inclusion of Busquets doesn’t come as a surprise because del Bosque has always been a fan of the midfielder. At the World Cup in South Africa the now former coach said, if he could be like any footballer, he’d be Busquets. Upd. at 12:30 Del Bosque made his selection during a promotion for football manager game available for mobile phones called ‘Top Eleven’. Maybe more surprisingly there is room for Samuel Umtiti in his team, this despite his gaff in France’s opening match against Australia. VICENTE DEL BOSQUE’S WORLD CUP XI: CEST IN SPORT.ES El once ideal de Vicente del Bosque del Mundial de Rusia Vicente del Bosque’s ideal XI at the World Cup in Russia doesn’t have much of a Spanish feel about it. In fact, there’s only room for one Spain player in his entire team and that’s Barcelona’s Sergio Busquets. Manuel Neuer (GER); Kyle Walker (ENG), Thiago Silva (BRA), Samuel Umtiti (FRA), Marcelo (BRA); Luca Modric (CRO), Busquets (SPA), Eden Hazard (BEL); Messi (ARG), Cristiano Ronaldo (POR), Neymar (BRA)
Manchester United booked their place in the last 16 of the Champions League with a 1-0 win at Old Trafford over Young Boys on Tuesday. Upd. on 29/11/2018 at 17:11 CET Mourinho manda un mensaje a sus ‘lovers’ It means they can go into their final game against Valencia without the pressure of needing a result to stay in the competition. IN SPORT.ES 28/11/2018 And with qualification assured, Mourinho sent a message to his ‘lovers’: “For some of my lovers, I just want to say: for the ones that like stats, 14 times in the Champions League, 14 times qualified through the group phases. Mourinho’s reaction to Fellaini’s winner. You and us all Jose, mate. pic.twitter.com/0J8D1c8CJx— The Man Utd Way (@TheManUtdWay) 27 de noviembre de 2018 “Reaching the next round is a feat for us. There are better teams, teams with more quality and ambition, but when a team reaches the knockout rounds, anything can happen.” “It was a gesture of relief and frustration,” the coach explained. “Our performance wasn’t a 0-0. It wasn’t a game to have problems until the last minute. I wasn’t angry with the players, I was frustrated not to score before. “My players were really tired at the end and that’s what we wanted: it means they gave everything. There were moments of good football, but there were also moments with a lack of confidence and pressure, but we got the goal.” Sport.es “Never one of my teams stayed in the group phase. The seasons I didn’t play in the Champions League, I won the Europa League. That didn’t look like the case at one point, though, with a late Fellaini winner earning United a vital three points and provoking a typically evokative Jose Mourinho celebration.

Even in these highly unusual times, Selkirk College Saints head coach Dave Hnatiuk has managed to bolster the program’s roster with talented recruits who are eager to start their post-secondary journey.The former assistant coach with the University of Regina Cougars, Hnatiuk took the reins of the Selkirk College program last June. Though not optimum timing to sculpt a roster through proper recruiting, the rookie head coach iced a team for the 2019-2020 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) season that held its own.“There are many challenges when you arrive to a new program as the head coach,” says Hnatiuk.“We had a dressing room full of great young athletes who represented their school very well and adapted to the coaching change in a positive way. Recruiting players for future seasons is essential to the success of any program and has many layers. In preparing for this season, we have been able to carry out a proper process that has resulted in some great commitments.”The latest addition to the Saints’ roster brings with him 122 games of British Columbia Hockey League (BCHL) experience with the Alberni Valley Bulldogs. Jackson Doucet is a speedy forward who is expected to provide an exciting level of offensive production to the Saints in the 2020-2021 season. Originally from Victoria, Doucet scored 13 goals and added 17 assists with the Bulldogs last season.“I chose Selkirk College because after speaking with Coach Hnatiuk multiple times, he gave me a very solid picture of what the program’s goals are both on the ice and off the ice,” says Doucet, who was an assistant captain with the Bulldogs.“Selkirk College gives me the best opportunity to develop as a player and improve in all aspects of the game. I take my education very seriously and this will be a great start for my post-secondary.”Doucet will join other recruits that include goaltender Jake Anthony, defenceman Bekkam Willis and forwards Carson Erhardt, Jacob Elik, Eric Hildebrand and Brad Marshall. All six commitments have solid Junior A resumes and are expected to make immediate impacts on the ice and off.Hnatiuk will continue to speak to student-athletes about joining the Saints, but has put down a solid foundation with the key additions to this point.“Being the only college in a league that consists of four-year universities makes the recruiting process more continuous and absolutely vital to success,” says Hnatiuk.“Our program provides individuals the opportunity to compete at a high level and get an ideal start to their post-secondary education. We take great pride knowing that we have moved many players onto next steps in both their education and their hockey careers.”The opening of the Saints training camp and the start of BCIHL season will be contingent upon Provincial Government guidelines associated with the COVID-19 pandemic.
“I know for a number of years in recent times, Connacht were very grudgingly involving themselves in the Railway Cup. It appears to me that the Connacht Council didn’t really have any great love for it, particularly in recent years,” the new Louth manager said. The future of the GAA’s interprovincial series is up in the air after Connacht confirmed they didn’t expect to take part in the competition again. The GAA announced in August that the series would not proceed this December. Last year’s winning Interprovincial football manager Peter McGrath (pictured above 3rd from the left at the launch of last years event) feels the Connacht decision not to participate will kill off the series once known as ‘The Railway Cup’. Connacht secretary John Prenty said today: “We feel it has run its course and we decided at the beginning of the year that we wouldn’t compete this year. I don’t think we’ll take part again but what the other three provinces will do again I don’t know.”In their 1950 and ’60s heyday the competitions attracted large crowds, but interest has dwindled since the club finals took over their previous St Patrick’s Day date in the calendar and they have regularly been shunted around the fixture diary or even cancelled. Last year’s football final saw 150 people attend the Ulster v Connacht football final in Carrick on Shannon. It remains to be seen whether the GAA will attempt to proceed with a three-team format next year or simply scrap the concept.In the 90 year history of the competitions, Connacht won 11 Interprovincial hurling titles and 10 football titles. Their last hurling win was in 2004 and their last football success came in Tuam Stadium in 2014 after a gap of 45 years.print WhatsApp Facebook Twitter Email
