Collinge wins one for the Canucks

first_imgPSC Bunker Boys @ The RanchMonday, Oct. 1, Royal Lakeside – StablefordA smaller group of golfers today due to several players staying up to watch the heroic exploits of the European team in the Ryder Cup until the early hours of the morning.  We had no American players today, so maybe they’re keeping a low profile – for a change!  Those that made it to golf (including at least 3 who had watched the whole match until 5.30 a.m.) made the trip to Royal Lakeside in good time. The course was in good shape, if a little soggy after recent heavy rain and we elected to play ‘pick, clean and place’, playing off the white tees.  There was little or no run on the fairways, so the course was playing long, but the greens were in their normal superb condition.Neil Griffin won a rare near pin on his first game back.There was no stopping Al Collinge (Canadian, and definitely not American) from taking his second win in a row; fortunately he’s departing to Canada later this week, so somebody else will get a chance!1st Al Collinge (hcp. 15) 39pts2nd Tony Robbins (12) 35pts3rd Gordon Melia (16) 33ptsNear Pins: Geoff Parker, Tony Robbins and Al Collinge (2).Wednesday, Oct. 3, Burapha – StablefordA bright sunny day as our three groups set out to play the unusual combination of A and D nines at Burapha. Once again the fairways were soggy and the buggies were confined to cart paths only, so we elected to play pick, clean and place, which turned out to be a wise decision as there was mud on the ball after virtually every shot. The course was in generally good shape though, with difficult rough and subtly sloping  greens. Alan Freeman produced the best round of the day to claim the winners spot, one point ahead of Geoff Parker. The walk from buggy to ball proved too much for Roger Mitchell’s dodgy knees and he forced to retire – hard luck Roger – hope to see you back soon.1st Alan Freeman (3) 35pts2nd Geoff Parker (13) 34pts3rd Lee Butler (14) 33ptsNear Pins:  Alan Freeman, Geoff Parker and P.J. Redmond.Friday, Oct. 5, Green Valley – StablefordDespite the impending arrival of tropical storm Gaemi later in the day, the sky was bright and clear as we set off to tackle the popular Green Valley course.  The course was surprisingly quiet and once again was a little soggy in places after the recent heavy rain.We welcomed back Neil Griffin (the only Derby County supporter in Pattaya) for his annual visit, and he made a good start by claiming one of only two near pins hit on the day.The course was playing long because there was very little run on the fairways, but that didn’t really account for the surprisingly poor scores.  Normally someone will at least play to their handicap here, but today the best score was recorded by Mikito Homma, also playing his first game back, with a modest 33 points.The round was completed in good time, leaving ample time for a few cold beers before returning for the presentation at The Ranch.1st Mikito Homma (15) 33pts2nd Geoff Hart (20) 32pts3rd Mashi Kaneta (13) 32ptsNear Pins:  Geoff Hart and Neil Griffin.Red Ants RuleSome time ago the Bunker Boys had the rule that there was no relief allowed from red ants.  The PSC then adopted a local rule that relief could be granted if the player was attacked by red ants whilst addressing the ball.  We decided to follow this PSC rule, but unfortunately this has led to several controversies recently.The crux of the problem is that if you are blocked behind a tree, how many red ants constitute an attack, thereby allowing you to a free drop away from the obstruction?  Rumour has it that certain people have been observed desperately searching for ants, and even observed whistling and stamping their feet to attract them! (But surely this is as likely to scare them away?)  Anyway, we’ve now decided to revert to the old rule – so make sure you pack some balm in the golf bag.Note:  The Bunker Boys are a PSC affiliated golf society, who now play out of The Ranch bar on Pattaya 3rd Road (in front of the fire station, and almost opposite the Buffalo Bar).  We play three times per week on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, so if you enjoy a fun day out, and a friendly but competitive golf competition why not come and join us.We meet at The Ranch at 9 a.m. for breakfast and transportation, and new players are always welcome.  Contact Buff on 086 046 5091 or 080 605 5663 for all enquiries.

Seraphs softball team wins Non-Public B title

first_imgBY WARREN RAPPLEYEA Staff Writer Mater Dei High School softball coach Jeanne Dickinson has been noting her team’s defensive strengths throughout the campaign – and those were quite apparent during the Seraphs’ 11-2 victory over Montclair Kimberley Academy in the NJSIAA Non- Public B title game. JEFF GRANIT staff Mater Dei High School shortstop Lauren Florio makes a catch against Montclair Kimberley Academy in her team’s 11-2 victory in the NJSIAA Non-Public B championship. The triumph was Mater Dei’s first and it came against a team that had won four successive Group titles and appeared a heavy favorite entering the game. Dickinson’s club has been stellar in the field throughout the campaign, boasting a .975 fielding percentage. The D, however, has been a bit overshadowed thanks to the outstanding pitching of Sara Cline, who was brilliant in shutting down St. Joseph’s of Hammonton in the Non-Public B South championship on June 2 to propel her team into the Non- Public B final. Cline permitted more base runners than usual in the championship game, but the Seraphs defense made the plays behind her and Montclair Kimberley ended up leaving 12 runners on base. “The girls made the plays, just like they have been doing all season long,” said Dickinson, who embraced Mater Dei’s underdog status to fire up her team. “That’s what I’ve come to expect.” Ironically, the best play came following a Mater Dei error. With the bases loaded with one out in the top of the fifth inning, Cline fielded a roller and tossed to catcher Erin Carroll for a force at the plate. Carroll, looking to complete a double play, threw the ball to first. The throw, however, went into right field, where hustling Lauren McKeown tracked it down and came up throwing. McKeown’s throw back to Carroll nailed a Cougars runner trying to score from second base to end the inning. Mater Dei, meanwhile, was stymied for the first three innings. However, the second time through the lineup the Seraphs broke through against Molly Herforth, Montclair Kimberley’s top pitcher. Dickinson’s team scored four times in the fourth inning to build a 5-1 lead. Cline, who drove in five runs on the day and has 22 RBIs on the year, doubled in a pair of runs, and Carroll followed with a single that brought home two more runs. Center fielder Danielle Murphy pounded out three doubles and scored three times. The victory followed Mater Dei’s exciting 1-0 win over St. Joseph’s of Hammonton in the Non-Public B South final last Tuesday. Cline was masterful, tossing 9 2/3 innings of hitless ball, while striking out 10. McKeown scored the winning run on a close play at the plate following Elyse Parker’s dribbler back to the pitcher. McKeown started the inning on second base as a result of the international tiebreaker rule. Cline faced the same situation in the bottom of the tenth. The runner tried to advance to third on a grounder back to Cline, who threw to first for the out. First baseman Elyse Parker threw across the diamond to Tess Gagliano at third to get the runner. “This is a strong all-around team,” Dickinson said. “We have good pitching, good fielding and good hitting. That’s a tough combination to beat. Everyone has been contributing. They deserve the success they’ve had.last_img read more

Guardiola heaps praise on ‘master’ tactician Conte

first_imgAntonio Conte is a “master” tactician and the Chelsea manager has already changed the way clubs play in the Premier League, according to the Italian’s Manchester City counterpart Pep Guardiola.Conte won the Premier League title in his debut season in England last year but the London outfit are currently struggling down in fifth place, 22 points behind runaway leaders City.Chelsea are also two points behind Tottenham Hotspur in the race for a top-four finish that will ensure qualification for next season’s Champions League.“I think Conte is going to leave something to English football. I am sure of that,” Guardiola told reporters as his side prepare to heap more misery on the champions in Sunday’s clash at the Etihad Stadium.Guardiola’s side will go into the match on the back of a 3-0 league victory over Arsenal on Thursday, while Chelsea lost their last league fixture 2-1 to Manchester United at Old Trafford last Sunday.Conte, who led Italy to the Euro 2016 quarter-finals before joining Chelsea later that year, has been the subject of persistent British media reports suggesting he will leave the club after criticising their transfer policy this season.Guardiola, however, feels the former Juventus boss has already left his mark on English football.“What Antonio has done here in the Premier League, maybe the people don’t realise,” the former Barcelona boss said.“He introduced another way to attack with five at the back, another system. A lot of teams, even Arsenal, had to do a lot of imitating to do that.“Tactically, he is a master. He did it amazingly with the national team with Italy and when he went to Turin.”last_img read more

No surprise: USA starts Fiba World Cup title defense with rout of Czechs

first_imgLOOK: Kryz Uy, Slater Young expecting first son No need to wear face masks in Metro Manila, says scientist While the Americans’ 78-game winning streak in international games with NBA players ended last month with a loss at Australia, their long winning streak in major tournaments continued. It’s now at 54 games, starting with the bronze-medal game of the 2006 world championships and continuing with gold-medal runs at the 2007 FIBA Americas, 2008 Olympics, 2010 world championships, 2012 Olympics, 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics.“We did a lot of good things,” Mitchell said. “We guarded it well. We’ve got a lot of things we can definitely work on, and I think this is a good start to the tournament.”The Czechs scored the first four points of the fourth quarter to get within 66-52, but the Americans weren’t threatened. Walker made a 3-pointer to stop the mini-run, found Mitchell in the corner for another 3-pointer that made it 72-52 about a minute later and the outcome was academic from there.The Czechs had their highlight run early for a quick 11-7 lead, and the couple thousand of their fans in Shanghai — most of them wearing either white or blue team jerseys, with a few Wizards jerseys for Satoransky mixed in there — were roaring.It didn’t last long.ADVERTISEMENT After a 9-0 run by the Czechs, order was quickly restored. The Americans scored the next 10 points, kick-starting what became a 29-9 run in all, and led by as many as 16 before going into the half with a 43-29 edge.And it was defense that carried the Americans. Over a 10-minute stretch of the half, the Czechs went 4 for 20 with seven turnovers.“The chemistry is building,” Barnes said. “Looking forward to it continuing to build.”TIP-INSCzech Republic: This was the first World Cup game for the Czechs since 1982, when the tournament was called the world championship and the country was still Czechoslovakia. That nation went 0-3 against the U.S. in past world championship matchups. … Jaromir Bohacik and Vojtech Hruban each scored 13.U.S.: The Americans started Walker, Mitchell, Tatum, Barnes and Turner. … Mason Plumlee, the only player back from the U.S. 2014 World Cup gold-medal team, was the only player not in U.S. coach Gregg Popovich’s initial 11-man rotation Sunday.

The average margin of victory: 22.6 points.FASHION STATEMENTPopovich and the U.S. staff wore red polos — Popovich and assistant coach Steve Kerr went untucked — and blue pants.

City sorry over Balotelli criticism- agent

first_img0Shares0000ROME, Italy, October 18 – Mario Balotelli’s agent says Manchester City contacted him to apologise for their perceived criticism of the controversial striker.It was widely reported in Britain at the weekend that Balotelli had been warned he must set a better example with his behaviour on and off the pitch. “I think that it’s important to make a good example,” City’s chief football operations officer Brian Marwood was quoted as saying by several English newspapers on Sunday.“I think – and we all know who we are talking about – that you will get people within the system who do not show the right values and the right behaviour.”But according to Balotelli’s agent, Mino Raiola, Marwood said his comments had been misinterpreted.Raiola told Italy’s Radio 24 on Wednesday: “Brian Marwood telephoned me and asked me to excuse him for these comments which were badly interpreted by the English press and Mario understands the situation, no problem.”Raiola added: “In England, journalists often twist things like that and their newspapers are only good for cleaning windscreens.”The Italian press did not escape Raiola’s wrath either, the agent talking about “the highs and lows of the Italian press, sporting or not, towards Mario Balotelli. There is no balanced viewpoints..with him (Balotelli) everything is news.”Balotelli has been involved in a number of high-profile and often bizarre incidents since joining City from Inter Milan in 2010.The 22-year-old has been involved in bust-ups with team-mates, threw a dart at a City youth team player and set off a firework in his own bathroom.Earlier this month, Balotelli angered City manager Roberto Mancini by walking straight down the tunnel rather than staying to support his team-mates after being substituted.But he was praised by the Italian media for his performance in Tuesday’s 3-1 World Cup qualifier win against Denmark when he set up a goal, got on the scoresheet, and helped out in defence.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Bayer count on Chicharito to blunt Atletico threat

After reports that Leverkusen wanted to sell the former Manchester United and Real Madrid star in January, Chicharito is now being hailed again for his role in victories over Augsburg on Friday and Eintracht Frankfurt a week earlier.But Bayer, third last year when Chicharito got 17 goals and was fourth in the Bundesliga scoring charts, are still back in eighth place, a long way off the four German spots for next year’s Champions League.And Leverkusen will still be outsiders against Atletico with Antoine Griezmann spearheading their attack.Chicharito is being hailed for his role in victories over Augsburg and Eintracht Frankfurt © AFP / Alfredo ESTRELLAThe Germans will be without suspended Hakan Calhanoglu and key winger Karim Bellarabi said Bayer must step up to the plate to break their Champions League last 16 curse.The Round of 16 has been the source of misery for Bayer over the last 15 years since Leverkusen reached the 2002 Champions League final.Atletico beat them in a penalty shootout in this round in 2015 following heavy defeats to Paris Saint-Germain in 2014 and Barcelona in 2012 over the two legs at the same stage.– ‘Hard game’ –Bellarabi is returning to form after missing the first half of the season with a leg injury and is relishing another crack at Atletico after their 3-2 defeat on penalties, to break the 1-1 aggregate score, two years ago.“We are full of confidence now and want to really put our foot on the gas,” said Bellarabi.“We’re looking forward to it and will have to concentrate 100 percent on Atletico, because it will be another hard game on Tuesday.Antoine Griezmann will spearhead the Atletico Madrid attack against Bayer Leverkusen © AFP/File / PATRIK STOLLARZDiego Simeone’s Madrid received a massive boost before the flight to Germany as goalkeeper Jan Oblak was included in the squad.The Slovenian international, who kept eight clean sheets in 13 Champions League games when Atletico reached last season’s final, has been sidelined since since surgery on a dislocated shoulder in December.Oblak’s return is a timely boost with Atletico’s defence depleted by injuries to centre-back Diego Godin and right-back Juanfran.Lucas Hernandez has deputised for Godin in Atletico’s last two outings, but is due in court on Tuesday.The French youth international faces domestic violence charges after both he and his girlfriend were arrested over an altercation earlier this month.On Friday, Simeone said Hernandez could be free to face Leverkusen, if the club fly him to Germany in time for kick-off.Kevin Gameiro made his case to start up front alongside Griezmann, in place of Fernando Torres, after coming off the bench to score a five-minute hat-trick in Saturday’s 4-1 win against Sporting Gijon.That display ended a four-month La Liga scoring drought for Gameiro.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more
