Successful weekend for rugby players from Fort St. John and Dawson Creek

first_imgIt was a new experience for the boy’s of the two schools, who just last week were in competition against each other. The tournament marked the first time that they had played competitively as a team. Coach Clayton Woodruff says the boy’s team played solid considering they had never played as a group before. “We played Dawson on Thursday, they beat us 5-0, then we jumped on a bus together and made a team out of two,” Woodruff explains. “Everybody got along great, they gelled really well. The committed guys from Dawson and FortSt. John made the trip, and it went really well, everybody played well together.”- Advertisement -The team was rewarded for their efforts as they finished with four wins and two ties over the tournament. Woodruff says that putting a combined team together considering the circumstances was difficult at the start, however things smoothed themselves out as the weekend progressed.“Trying to figure out who we were going to start was a challenge initially but us coaches agreed right away who was going to start, and it went well,” Woodruff says. “Once you get a game or two in, everybody loses that edge to play, and everybody got lots of playing time. For six games, that’s plenty of crashing and banging for everybody. We thought it may be a problem, but it wasn’t.” The boy’s from the high schools now go their separate ways as the squad from FortSt. John concludes their regular season tomorrow against Grande Prairie.Advertisementlast_img read more

AT LAST! SLIEVE LEAGUE FINALLY PUT ON THE TOURISM MAP

first_imgEUROPE’S highest sea cliffs at Slieve League are to be finally put on the tourist map – giving a boost to south west Donegal.For years the incredible 600-metre high cliffs were ignored by tourism bosses (and some would say the entire county.)Now Slieve League is to be included in an “end-of-the-world” road trip drive route taking in the Atlantic coastline and stretching to Co Cork. Tourism bosses are hoping the route will appeal to Americans and Europeans on a trip to rival California’s Pacific Coast Highway.It’s already being called the “Wild Atlantic Drive” – so let’s hope tourists are encouraged to drive the entire route or Donegal will miss out again!“We’ll be pitching this at people who want to come over and have an authentic experience and enjoy not only Irish landscapes, but also the company of Irish people,” said Alex Connolly from Tourism Ireland.“It will be for people who are looking for that rugged, authentic Irish experience, the Ireland that at one stage – before the discovery of America – was considered the end of the world, but still has that remoteness and beauty about it.” The proposed route hasn’t been finalised – and it’s not known if it tourists will be encouraged to start the trip in Donegal or Cork. (Our best bet says it will be Cork).The route could be ready and designated in time for the 2013 tourism season.© 2011 donegaldaily.com, all Rights ReservedThe copying, republication or redistribution of donegaldaily.com Content, including by framing or similar means, is expressly prohibited by law.Follow us on www.twitter.com/donegaldaily Follow us on www.facebook.com/donegaldailySell anything on www.donegaldailyclassifieds.comAT LAST!

What to Watch For Against Texas Tech

Oklahoma State will face what could be their toughest matchup of the season on Saturday in Lubbock as they look to defend their perfect record. In order to do so, here are four things that will have to favor the Cowboys in the game to steal a win in Lubbock.4. Wide Receiver PlayJhajuan Seales is likely in the dog house for this one, which means there’s a good chance we see a heavier dose of Chris Lacy and maybe Jalen McCleskey. McCleskey has been increasingly more involved in the past two weeks offensively, specifically in jet sweep and misdirection, and it will be interesting if they continue that theme again this week in Lubbock.AdChoices广告3. Hot startTexas Tech followed up a lax performance in Lawrence two weeks ago with another loss in which they got their doors blown off in Norman last weekend. Both games provided less than stellar starts, and Kingsbury acknowledges as much. “Just need to start faster,” he told Fox Sports. “You know, there’s no recipe for that, just got to do it as a team and work on it at practice and try to get better at it.”For Oklahoma State, a fast start would do wonders to stymie what will likely be a big Texas Tech crowd. Keeping the fans out of the game and putting this one away early would not only be a boost of confidence, but also a big resume builder for those still in doubt of what this team can accomplish.2. Line playBoth sides of the line will be big aspects to watch in this matchup. Texas Tech is absolutely horrid at defending the run (124th in the nation), and Oklahoma State hasn’t necessarily been able to get things going; although they appeared functional last week against Kansas, for what it’s worth.On the other side, Texas Tech’s usually stout offensive line has had some run ins with the injury bug, but running back DeAndre Washington is your typical Tech scatback who can give the defense fits if you aren’t careful. For the Cowboys defensively, they’ll have a tall task of trying to contain both Washington and Pat Mahomes, who has proven to be a very elusive QB with an ability to throw and run well.1. QuarterbacksJ.W. Walsh was BIG last week in homecoming, accounting for five total touchdowns in a blowout over Kansas. As the season has progressed, Walsh has really caught his groove and more importantly, his niche in the redzone. With the Texas Tech defensive line being somewhat suspect, Walsh may be called on frequently to put his legs to use and keep the defense honest.On the other hand, Tech’s defense through the air hasn’t been much better, which means Rudolph will still be a big factor in this one. Tech ranks 114th in the nation in passing defense – which is slightly unfair given that they’ve already faced TCU and Baylor. There’s an opportunity in both facets offensively for Oklahoma State to take a big step forward on Saturday, and obviously the quarterback play will be a big determining factor in the outcome.last_img read more
