The future of the boys rep program for Nelson Youth Soccer should be coming up roses sooner than later.That’s all because of the focus NYS is taking with the U12 program.“The focus at this age is development,” said mentor/coach, Jamie Spendlove.“We don’t want to cut any kids and perhaps discourage them from pursuing rep soccer. “A kid that might just miss out on the team at this age, if there were cuts, might be a star player in a couple years, with the extra development.”Spendlove said NYS would enter two teams for every tournament on the schedule — the strongest players spread onto both teams.“We’re making them balanced, but not as strong as if we entered just one team,” Spendlove explained. “This weekend in Kamloops was no different where we entered two, balanced teams in the tournament.” The results were somewhat varied as a result, but overall, some strong performances were delivered from both teams and all the boys. “I was very pleased with the strong play and leadership shown by our second year players that were put on both teams,” said coach Kerry Dyck.“They lead the way. But at the same time, several of our new players, both U12 and U11, stepped up at times with great performances as well. I found that very encouraging. “You could see the progress even through the weekend.”The first Nelson team finished the weekend with one win and three losses. However, in two of the three losses, the team played very well, and with a bit of luck, could have come away with a tie or even a win. The second Nelson team finished the weekend with two ties and two losses. Again, they played very well in three of the games and could have won both of the games they tied and even in one of the losses.Leading the way for Nelson from both teams with goals was Ezra Foy with four, followed by Angus Paterson with two and singles by Keanu Tromans, Jesse Thurston, Jesse Harold, Dylan Luscombe, Bradey Sookero, Max Spielman, Josh Schacher, Thomas Baxter and Jaden Dyck. Jesse Thurston, Max Spielman, Sam Foy, Jaden Dyck and Bradey Sookero won game MVP honours.The U11/U12 Selects’ next action is June 2-3 in Kalispell Montana.
The Selkirk College Saints opened the 2016-2017 British Columbia Intercollegiate Hockey League (BCIHL) regular season with a slight stumble, but nobody said the quest for a fifth straight league title would be easy.Coming into the regular season as the four-time defending league champions, the Saints home opener Saturday night featured an entertaining game against the Simon Fraser University Clan.A pair of powerplay goals and stellar goaltending by Jordan Liem helped the Clan escape the Castlegar & District Recreation Complex with a 3-2 victory.“It’s a learning experience, by no means am I devastated by the loss,” says Saints head coach Brent Heaven.“Last season we got off to slow start and then we had a lot of success in the second half. It’s a process and we are building towards an end goal, that goal doesn’t change because we lose one game.”After raising the banner to the rafters of the Castlegar arena pre-game, the Saints got off to a slow start. Simon Fraser controlled play for the first 10 minutes of the opening frame, before the Saints found their edge. A hard hitting first period ended with both Saints’ starter Brett Huber and Clan goaltender Liem keeping the puck out of the net.Simon Fraser opened the scoring four minutes into the middle frame when Mitch Crisanti scored on the powerplay. A minute later, a sloppy breakout by the Saints resulted in an Adam Callegari goal and a 2-0 Clan lead.Veteran Saints forward Alex Milligan gave the supportive home crowd something to cheer about with less than a minute remaining in the second period when he put away a rebound to cut the lead to 2-1.Saints assistant captain Ryan Edwards tied the score early in the third period when his blast from the point on the powerplay found the back of the Simon Fraser net. Four minutes into final period, the Clan struck again on the powerplay when Brendan Lamont stuffed a rebound past Huber.The Saints pressed, firing 12 third period shots on Liem but could not get the equalizer.“When they have seven opportunities to score with the man advantage, it’s tough to win those games,” says Heaven about the penalty problems that hampered the Saints in the opener.“You have to play a bit more disciplined to have good success in this league.”The Saints outshot the Clan 37-31 in the game.The Selkirk College team will now hit the road for two straight weekends where they will get a look at Trinity Western University, the University of Victoria and a rematch against Simon Fraser.They return home on October 28 for a game against U.S. rival Eastern Washington University.

Other photos of the former India captain also surfaced, where he was seen enjoying the ceremonies with his wife and daughter.MS Dhoni struggling at the moment, India too top-heavy: Sourav Ganguly MS Dhoni has returned from the England tour while Parthiv Patel was snubbed for the Test squad vs England (@rpingh Photo)Lovely to meet old mates.

The former India captain was booed at Lord’s for his slow batting in the second ODI and things didn’t change in the next one-day match as well. The wicket-keeper batsman struggled to get runs at a brisk pace as India went down 2-1 in the three-match series.Following that, a video of MSD surfaced on social media, where he was seen asking for the match ball from umpires and that send social media abuzz about him retiring from international cricket. However, Team India coach Ravi Shastri came out and cleared the air, saying that MS Dhoni is going nowhere.”MS wanted to show the ball to Bharat Arun. He wanted to show him the wear and tear the ball had endured, to get a general idea of what the conditions were like,” Shastri was quoted as saying by the Times of India.”That’s rubbish. MS is not going anywhere,” Shastri said.However, as India embark on a month-and-a-half long Test journey in England, where Virat Kohli’s men play five Tests, the World Cup-winning captain will have time to reflect on his game and work on it before India play limited-overs cricket again in the Asia Cup, which is likely to be played in September.
