Leafs score three in the third to outlast Grand Forks 5-3

first_imgThe Grand Forks Border Bruins recently won its first Kootenay International Junior Hockey League game in two years on home ice.The Nelson Leafs were looking to avoid being the Bruins second home-ice victim in as many games.The Leafs shook off a couple of early defensive lapses to outscore the Bruins 5-1 en route to a 5-3 Neil Murdoch Division victory Thursday night in the Boundary City.The win keeps Nelson in top spot in the Murdoch Division, four points in front of the idle Castlegar Rebels.The two teams meet tonight in Nelson at 7 p.m. in the NDCC Arena.In a game that had “trap” written all over it, the Bruins surprised the Leafs with two first-period goals by Nelson Minor Hockey grad Colton Dawson and Chase Anchikoski.The lead came despite the Leafs out shooting the Bruins 27-9 in the first frame. However, a late goal by team captain Colton Schell cut the advantage in half before the period ended.The teams exchanged second period goals.Affilate player Brandon Sookro tied the game before Bruins’ Connor Gross restored the one-goal advantage for the home side on the power play.In the third Nelson finally solved Grand Forks netminder Robert Dunsmuir scoring three times to rally to victory.Matt MacDonald and defenceman J.J. Beitel scored less than a minute apart to give Nelson a 4-3 lead.Matthew Naka scored shorthanded late in the third to pad the lead.The Leafs finished the contest out shooting the Bruins 61-27.Adam Maida, a teammate of Sookro on the Kootenay Ice Major Midget squad, made 24 saves to register his first junior career victory in goal.LEAF BANTER: The win kept Nelson undefeated against the Bruins this season. . . .After playing the first eight games with Beaver Valley, Colton Dawson has been a nice find for the Bruins, scoring three goals in 11 games for Grand Forks. Dawson played last season for the Nelson Midget Reps . . .After winning 11 straight, the Leafs have now won three in a row and have points in 15 consecutive games.last_img read more

SPRING FEVER HANDICAP QUOTES – MONDAY JULY 4, 2016

first_imgNOTES: Winning owner Terry Lovingier resides in Seal Beach.             OWNER TERRY LOVINGIER, LOST BUS, WINNER: “This filly has a nice stature; she’s a big filly. When she checked early like she did, I thought, ‘I don’t think she’ll be able to make up that much ground.’“When Codacious went with Sunday Rules and pressured her, I think it took a little bit out of (Sunday Rules) and we were able to get there after that.“Lost Bus has a bit of a nasty temperament. I took a few people to see her and I was showing them to move slow when you get up close. She acted all nice to me and when I got up close, she head-butted me! I fell to the ground.“But it can’t get any better than this, winning a race on the Fourth of July.” EDWIN MALDONADO, SUNDAY RULES, FOURTH: “I didn’t expect that in a million years, I don’t know what Kent (Desormeaux, aboard Codacious) was thinking. He killed both of us; we both ran last. He finished third, I finished fourth.”             GARY SHERLOCK, LOST BUS, WINNER: “The five (Codacious) went with the two (Sunday Rules) and softened her up and it may have made a difference. When I saw my filly make her move, I felt pretty good. She made the lead pretty early. She ran good.“She’ll probably run in the Rancho Bernardo (Handicap) next (Grade III, $100,000, 6 ½ furlongs at Del Mar Aug. 17).” JOCKEY QUOTES FERNANDO PEREZ, LOST BUS, WINNER: “Desormeaux (aboard Codacious) closed off the hole that was right in front of me. I was letting Sunday Rules go and then when I tried to go up on her outside, to sit just off of her, Desormeaux closed off the hole and I was about to be sandwiched, so I had to take up.“I just took back and tried to make a run at the end. She ran huge. These are really good fillies so I didn’t know exactly what would happen today but (Lost Bus) ran a big race.” TRAINER QUOTESlast_img read more

Firefox Home Brings Bookmarks, Open Tabs & History to iPhone

first_imgMozilla, the company behind the world’s second most-popular browser, writes this morning that it is “happy to announce that the wait is over.” Firefox, its open-source entry into the browser market, has made its way onto the iPhone and iPod Touch. Before you get too excited, it’s not as a browser, but as a companion to Firefox on your desktop, giving you mobile access to all of the details normally saved at home. Firefox Home works with the free Firefox add-on Firefox Sync, and brings all the details from your desktop to your iPhone or iPod Touch. It has all of your bookmarks, your browsing history and even the tabs that are currently open on your desktop browser. The app also has an “Awesome Bar”, just as in Firefox, which tries to predict what you are looking for while you type. If you don’t have Firefox Sync already installed, the first thing that Firefox Home does is to send you a quick email with the four simple steps to get going. Mozilla’s mobile version of Firefox, called Fennec, came to Android last April but there’s still no word on its landing on Apple’s mobile devices. Let’s be honest, though. Everyone wishes for their favorite browser, whether Firefox or Chrome or Opera, to make it on to their mobile platform, but does it every really replicate the desktop experience and fulfill their desires? We like Firefox on the desktop for its extensibility, but this isn’t the sort of functionality we’re likely to see, were we ever to get Firefox on the iPhone. And as we saw with Opera for the iPhone, the simple fact that it couldn’t be made to act as the default browser put it on a second tier status from the get go.So, for now, we say stop lamenting the fact that this isn’t a fully functional Firefox browser and enjoy the ability to quickly access everything you’ve done at home while you’re on the go.

first_imgJuventus captain Chiellini: Ronaldo ‘s arrival surprised meby Carlos Volcano9 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveJuventus captain Giorgio Chiellini admits he was surprised by their swoop for Cristiano Ronaldo from Real Madrid this summer.Chiellini confessed he was taken aback by the deal.“Cristiano scored many, many, many times against us and he broke my dreams many times – in Cardiff, in Madrid, in Turin,” the defender told BBC Sport.“Before, the Champions League was a dream. Now it is a target because Cristiano is the best player in the world and we need him to make the last step.“It’s the personality of Cristiano. He has fantastic skills in the field but out of the field, his attitude – how he works, how he prepares for the match, how he lives every day of his life – can help us. The team has changed.“We started in the first three months nearly in perfection but we know the most important period is from spring.“I think that we are one of the four or five teams who are favourites – Barcelona, Manchester City, Real Madrid, Bayern Munich. But also PSG and Atletico can reach the victory and we are so far away from the key matches still.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
