Rangers fight back for game 2 win

first_imgFlyers lose 7-3 to the Spirit River Rangers After playing one of their most complete games of the season on home ice in game one, the Flyers headed to Spirit River on Tuesday night ready for a battle in game two. Sadly, the Flyers only showed up with 11 skaters – something the Rangers exploited masterfully, as they fought back to win game 2The Flyers drew first blood, when Tyler Loney’s powerplay point shot found its way through a screen and past Matt Yesminski. The Rangers evened the score, when Donny Lloyd’s powerplay shot did the same trick. With 9 minutes remaining in the first, Matt Hunter’s sharp angle shot eluded Troy Hunt, and the Rangers were ahead.- Advertisement -Early in the second, the Flyers failed to capitalize on a 5 on 3, but did score on the 5 on 4, when Todd Alexander spun and shot through David Alexander and past Yesminski. A minute later, Matt Shuya led Arlo Hadland into the Rangers zone on a 2-on-1, and fed Hadland who beat Yesminski, to put the Flyers back up. But, from there on out, Spirit River would get the best of it, as they scored three unanswered goals to close out the second period, courtesy of Brad Kennedy (2) and Mark Wallman. It would be an uphill battle for the Flyers to come from behind when short benched, and on this night, it would prove too much, as the Rangers continued to play the body and forecheck hard, as Fort St. John was unable to muster any offence in the third. The Rangers would add two more, from Matt Hunter (his second) and Mike Lefley. The final exclamation point would be a fight between Tyler Loney and Kurtis Swanson. It was Swanson’s first and only shift of the game, and though Loney was dog-tired from the game, he hung in for a split decision.

Natural Resources Canada satisfied with assessment of Site C slope stability and seismic hazards

first_imgHowever, NRCan did present concerns in the area of acid rock drainage and metal leaching, the result of natural weathering on sulphide bearing rock. “Given the abundance of disturbed rocks with high ARDML potential and short lag time to onset of acid generation and non-acid generating overburdens with elevated selenium content,” says Jessica Coulson, Team Leader of NRCan’s Environmental Assessment Division, “ARDML prevention and mitigation can pose some challenges.” Coulson added that more detailed tests are ongoing, and the lack of better water quality modelling “presents a higher degree of uncertainty.” Among NRCan’s recommendations in that area is the development of an ARDML management plan, as well as the improved water quality monitoring, which Site C Chief Project Engineer John Nunn says B.C. Hydro agrees with. The hearings continue today with presentations from Transport Canada and the Ministry of Forests, as well as Saulteau First Nations, West Moberly First Nations, Treaty 8 Tribal Association and the Peace River Environmental Society.Advertisement Cassidy says studies have shown that reservoirs at a height of 60 metres or less, like the Site C project would be, are also drastically less likely to trigger significant earthquakes than taller ones. “The probability of earthquakes is extremely low, so that probability of triggering earthquakes drops off very quickly with reservoir height,” he argues, adding, “In British Columbia there’s no history of significant reservoir triggered seismicity, either at the much larger Bennett Dam, which is 183 metres, or the Peace Canyon Dam.” In it its review, NRCan looked at the seismicity hazards in the area, the possible effects of waves generated by earthquakes, as well as the proposed mitigation measures by Hydro. It found that design of the dam would cover the largest induced earthquakes in the area and any sloshes of water from earthquakes would be less than one metre, leaving another 7.6 metres room. – Advertisement -Research scientist for the Geological Survey of Canada Peter Bobrowsky said the same of the information on the geology and terrain hazards presented in the Environmental Impact Statement, adding that the slope stability line and landslide generated wave impact line given are conservative and exceed minimum required standards. “NRCan is satisfied the Proponent has followed the adopted current standards and best practices used both in Canada and internationally in dealing with slope stability,” he told the JRP. “We have no other recommendations.” Advertisementlast_img read more

All support greatly appreciated.*Senior Gaeltacht Semi Final*CLG BnaG 0-9 Ardara 0-15After great wins over Gweedore and Termon in the Gaeltacht Ardara proved a step too far for Na Galloglaigh on Sunday in Glenties. Having just played Killybegs on Friday evening and with an injury list including Cathal Mc Gettigan, Enda McHugh, Gavin Grier, Anthony Fisher, Kane Barrett and Adam Serrinha it was a great opportunity for Danny to get a look at some players who hadn’t played as much so far this season. In poor conditions for a game neither side really got going and it was 12 minutes before the first score was registered. But Na Galloglaigh grew into the game as it went on and but for some wayward shooting might have been further than 0-6 to 0-5 up at half time. Playing with the wind in the second half Ardara adapted to the conditions much better and clinically punished the numerous basic errors being made by Na Galloglaigh. However the boys were right in the game for the majority and with 8 minutes left Ardara were just 0-10 to 0-8 ahead. With Na Galloglaigh pushing forward for scores Ardara found the space to get the scores to set up a final against neighbours Glenties in the final. Now Na Galloglaighs focus switches back to the bread and butter of the league as they take on Cloughaneely in Falcarragh next Saturday evening. Team: Sean Gallagher, Kieran Sheridan, Barry McNulty, Tj Evesson, Gary Merritt (0-1), Sean Black, PJ Hagan, Luke Barrett (0-2), Joey Cullen, Darragh Black (0-2), Pauric Curley (0-1), Christopher Barrett (0-1), David Curley, Kyle Black (0-2), Paddy Peoples. Subs: Jonny Logue for Sheridan (HT), Brandon Toye for Cullen (42m), Dean Burgess for D.

All support to get behind the lads would be much appreciated.*Seniors*CLG BnaG 0-13 Killybegs 0-13The Seniors played out an exciting draw with Killybegs on Friday evening in a game that could have went either way. Killybegs started the game much brighter than their hosts and seemed to be first to every ball. They were also dominating physically for the first 20 minutes or so and when they went 0-5 to 0-1 up against the wind it looked like it could be a rough day for Na Galloglaigh. But the boys responded very well and in the final 10 minutes took some great scores to draw level. Killybegs snuck ahead again right at the end of the half to leave the score 0-7 to 0-6 and Na Galloglaigh with an uphill task. Yet again though the boys showed great character against a stiff breeze and scores throughout the half were pretty much tit for tat. With less than 10 minutes of the game left Sean Black made a miraculous goal line clearance to keep the boys in the game, and in a frantic finale either side almost nicked winners. All in all a draw was a probably a fair result, although Na Galloglaigh will probably rue their slow start. Team: Caolan Mc Gettigan, Brandon Toye, Barry McNulty, Conor McNulty, Gary Merritt (0-1), Sean Black, Tj Evesson, Luke Barrett (0-1), Jonny Logue, Cathal Mc Gettigan (0-3), Christopher Barrett (0-5), Darragh Black (0-1), David Curley, Pauric Curley (0-2), Paddy Peoples.
