NP Oscars finish second at Zones

first_img**SubmittedIn one of the most bizarre finishes anyone has seen, the North Peace Oscars fell victim to a much better team on Saturday, losing 91 – 51 to the Kelly Road Roadrunners.  It took a bit longer to complete than most games.  Four minutes into the first quarter with Kelly Road already up by ten points, a put back jam by the Roadrunners big man damaged the basket at Prince George Secondary School.  With repair out of the question it was decided that the game would be completed at another venue.  After packing up everything and everyone, the game was restarted at College Heights Secondary School, about twenty minutes from PGSS up the hill along Highway 16.  It probably didn’t matter where the game was staged.  On this day Kelly Road came with their best game and North Peace had already played as well as they could against Prince George Secondary on Friday.  As if to put some sort of punctuation mark on the victory, the Roadrunners were still running a full court press with under four minutes left in the contest while up by forty points. “As a team, we’re happy with second.  We came here, played some good basketball, beat a good 3A school (PGSS) twice and extended Kelly Road to their max in our first game on Thursday.  I think our players learned a lot about themselves and about basketball in general.  We are not yet good enough to represent the Zone at the Provincial level … we wish Kelly Road all the best … with some good fortune they’ll win a couple of games.  They are definitely the top team in the North right now.”  Assistant Coach Mike Brown was speaking by cell phone as the Oscars bus rolled northward out of Prince George with the expectation of being home near midnight tonight. The North Peace Ookapiks were second in the girls division finishing behind Prince George Secondary but ahead of Kelly Road and South Peace.  No details of the girls games were available.- Advertisement –last_img read more

Ulster Bank employee Meghan Murray told Donegal Daily, “Last year we done a charity cycle and it was a great success, we raised over €800 for the Irish Cancer Society.“However, this year we’re hoping we can break the €1,000 mark to help raise much needed finance for all these incredible charity organisations.“This year, we opted to do something a little different, so we’ve swapped the road for the water!“We’re doing a charity row, it should be great fun but we know it will be a very difficult challenge and we’ll more than likely be very OAR after it. EVERY EURO raised will be matched by the Ulster Bank so it’s a superb and worthwhile cause for everybody to get behind and support.The event will take place this place next Thursday the 4th of June in Killybegs.Get down and support the staff from Ulster Bank and donate a few quid to three brilliant charity organisations.HELP ‘ROW’ IN BEHIND ULSTER BANK KILLYBEGS AS THEY LAUNCH CHARITY DRIVE FOR IRISH CANCER SOCIETY was last modified: May 29th, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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) Tags:FeaturesnewsNoticeslast_img read more

Pujara, Vijay hit centuries; India in commanding position

first_imgSHARE COMMENT Sri Lanka × COMMENTS SHARE SHARE EMAIL Published on The Pujara-Vijay combination has been a nemesis for bowlers in the Indian sub-continent with their 10th century stand in longest version. Vijay hit 11 boundaries and a six off 221 deliveries before being dismissed while trying to sweep Rangana Herath.Pujara batted through the whole day facing 284 balls in which he hit 13 boundaries.Three more satisfying pieces of statistics is sure to bring smile in the Indian dressing room. Vijay-Pujara pair score at an average of 73 runs per partnership – highest among all Indian pairs across Test cricket and Saurashtra right- hander has completed 1000 Test runs in 2017.Pujara-Vijay were also involved in their fourth successive century stand.Vijay teed off with a glorious square drive off Eden Test hero Suranga Lakmal (0/58), who was far from his best with conditions not aiding his kind of bowling.For someone who plays the drive fluently, Vijay was time and again provided with loose half-volleys both outside the off-stump and on his legs for him to make full use.The shot with which Vijay brought up his half-century was a picture perfect straight drive off Dasun Shanaka.There was a lot of time at India’s disposal and that’s why the batsmen were in no hurry yet comfortably got their runs. The home team scored at a steady if not breakneck pace but always had control of the proceedings with the three seasons yielding – 301 runs in 90 overs.The acceleration in the final session was largely due to skipper Kohli’s flurry of strokes — he hit six boundaries facing 70 balls.Dinesh Chandimal’s decision to bring in his spinners hardly yielded any different result as both looked comfortable reaching to the pitch of the deliveries nullifying any help that they could have possibly got off the pitch.When Herath (1/45) flighted one inviting Pujara to come out, he promptly did so by flicking it to the vacant mid- wicket boundary. His straight drive off Lakmal was regal as he hit nine fours having faced 183 deliveries.Vijay on his part gave Herath the charge hitting him for a straight six. He completed his hundred with a push towards long-off of Dilruwan Perera’s bowling. He achieved the landmark in 187 deliveries.Dilruwan (0/117 in 21 overs) could hardly turn a single delivery and was the weaklink of the attack leaking runs from one end.Worse, he was stationed at short mid-on for a specific uppish drive. Vijay did fall into the trap trying to flick Lahiru Gamage and the ball flew towards Dilruwan, who couldn’t pouch onto the catch. The Tamil Nadu opener was batting on 61 then.There wasn’t a single wicket-taking delivery from the Lankan attack as they could hardly beat the bat. With no lateral movement on offer and the pitch offering reasonable good bounce and carry, strokeplay became relatively easier.The fuller length deliveries did not seem to work for them while the trio of Lakmal, Shanaka (0/43 in 13 overs) and Gamage (1/47 in 22 overs) did not have enough pace to trouble the batsmen when they hit back of the length.On a pitch like this and a toothless attack, Pujara would have always proved to be a handful as he batted with effortless ease. It seemed like he treated the Lankan attack like any other domestic team. There wasn’t even a single delivery that could breach Pujara’s defence.

Photo credit: Vivek Bendre Opener Murali Vijay added to the selection conundrum with a patient 128 and was ably complemented by ‘Run Machine’ Cheteshwar Pujara’s unbeaten 121 as India grinded a mediocre Sri Lankan attack on the second day of the second cricket Test, here.Pujara and Vijay added 209 runs for the second wicket to set a platform from where India would look to bat the Islanders out of the contest.Ending the day at a comfortable 312 for two, the hosts are 107 runs ahead of Sri Lanka’s first innings total of 205.Playing his first Test match after eight months, Vijay increased the ‘happy headache’ of the team management as they will be spoilt for choice during the third Test match in Delhi and more importantly, the Test series in South Africa.With his compact technique, the Tamil Nadu opener is certainly going to have a headstart over his nearest rivals — KL Rahul and Shikhar Dhawan, when the team embarks on the tour to South Africa.Pujara, who scored his 14th century has skipper Virat Kohli (54 bating) for company. Kohli is looking good for a big one on the third day and surely would be playing a more attacking role than Pujara, who took 246 balls to reach his century.With the pitch not offering any assistance to the bowlers, Sri Lankan attack looked pedestrian as the seasoned Indian duo scored runs easily without taking any undue risks.
