West Genesee baseball stunned by F-M at sectionals

first_imgBut the Bees won them both and, by seizing the top seed in a seven-team sectional AA bracket, earned a bye straight into the semifinals, leaving the Wildcats to have to deal with an F-M side that knew them well from a three-game series two weeks earlier.It wouldn’t happen in Camillus, either. Rains that fell early on Tuesday forced the game to get moved to the new all-weather field at Wells College, stripping the Wildcats of home-field advantage, yet another bad break.WG had won two of those three games in the series with F-M, but here it had to face Hornets ace Tom Coleman, who for six innings quieted the Wildcats’ bats, accumulating seven strikeouts.Itai Spinoza’s RBI single in the top of the third put the Hornets in front 1-0. Despite allowing five hits and five walks, Paige kept F-M off the board until Gallager relieved him in the seventh.Three outs from having its season end, WG struck in the bottom of the seventh, Kensey bringing home Comins with the tying run, sending it to extra innings, where the Wildcats had found frequent success during the season.The eighth and ninth innings went without a run, Gallager and F-M counterpart John Egnaczyk keeping it 1-1. Then, in the top of the 10th, F-M loaded the bases, and Max Parker coaxed a walk, followed by a Sean O’Connor sacrifice fly.With that two-run cushion, Egnaczyk got the final three outs, and for the second year in a row WG saw its season conclude with an extra-inning defeat, Baldwinsville having done the same thing to them in the 2018 sectional final.And F-M didn’t stop here, also knocking off no. 3 seed Cicero-North Syracuse 5-0 in Thursday’s semifinal at Auburn’s Falcon Park to set up a shot at dethroning B’ville in the sectional final.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story On May 24, the Wildcats beat Utica Proctor 6-3 to close its regular season at 14-5 overall, breaking out of an early 1-1 tie with a run in the fourth inning and four runs in the fifth.Tyler Kensey went four-for-four with a double and RBI, while Joe Comins, Jake DePalma, Gavin Leahy, Dan Davis and Brad May also drove in runs, Comins and Chris Bonacci each scoring twice. Ryan Paige pitched five innings, limiting Proctor to three hits and striking out seven before Sam Gallager and Jack Gordon closed it out in relief.Now WG had to watch and see if it would get the top seed, which would take place if Baldwinsville lost either of its last two games, to F-M and Cicero-North Syracuse. A single week of diamond drama was supposed to determine whether the West Genesee baseball team ended 42 long years of waiting for another Section III title.Instead, the no. 2 seed Wildcats never made it out of the quarterfinal round, ousted 3-1 in 10 innings by no. 7 seed Fayetteville-Manlius Tuesday night at Wells College.Just about every possible break went against WG in the days and hours leading up to the game with F-M, even after it had clinched the SCAC Metro division regular-season title with an 8-4 record.center_img Tags: BaseballWest Geneseelast_img read more

Rohr Debunks Rejection of Accommodation Claim

first_img“I never rejected any apartment,” he said. “I might have spoken to a few people who I believed to be genuinely interested in me, saying that the apartment was very big and I joked that I might get lost inside it when I start to live there, but I never rejected it.“When the Federation engaged me, and told me I had to live in Nigeria, I agreed to it because I believed that my base has to be in the country where I work. I did the same in Niger, Burkina Faso and Gabon, and I do not see it any differently in Nigeria,” Rohr added in a statement.The Franco-German stated further: “The Federation moved to rent an apartment for me, and this is a good gesture that shows their commitment. If I have issues with it, it should be done directly through the Federation and not on the pages of the media.”Rohr decried the habit of people trying to get close and then twisting his comments in order to make press news, and cautioned that it would not augur well for media relations if he has to close up in fear of being misquoted.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Keno EdhowoSuper Eagles’ Technical Adviser, Gernot Rohr, has reacted to news making the rounds that he rejected the accommodation given to him by the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF), for his stay in Nigeria.Rohr, who managed the senior national team for the first time in a 1-0 home win against Tanzania earlier this month expressed displeasure at the way people are using his openness and easy accessibility to quote him out of context and attempt to derail him from the core assignment he has at hand.last_img read more

Fray to Lead 15-man Bermuda Squad in World Cup 2023 Series

first_imgHAMILTON, Bermuda (CMC) — Terryn Fray has been named captain of a 15-man Bermuda squad to take part in the first series of the ICC World Cup Challenge League B against Hong Kong, Italy, Jersey, Kenya and Uganda.The series, taking place between December 2-12 in Muscat, Oman, is the start of the road to the 2023 50-overs World Cup in India.Between 2019 and 2021, there will be 90 matches between both League A and B with each team playing 15 games and fighting for points to move on to a qualifier play-off in 2022.Bermuda’s most recent international outing saw them finish 13th of 14 teams in a qualifier in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), for six places in next year’s T20 World Cup in Australia.They lost all six of their games with only Nigeria, late replacements for suspended Zimbabwe, finishing below them with an inferior net run rate.The squad shows a raft of changes from the team who were largely outplayed in the UAE, with Tre Manders, Justin Pitcher, Kyle Hodsoll, Zico Burgess and Pierre Smith called up.Manders is returning after suffering a broken ankle in a motorcycle accident in July.Left out of the squad are Allan Douglas, George O’Brien, Oronde Bascome, Charles Trott, Malachi Jones and Macai Simmons.Also missing is 44-year-old Janeiro Tucker, although he will continue to serve as assistant coach under Head Coach Herbie Bascome.Bermuda’s first game will be against Hong Kong on December 3.Calvin Blankendal, the Bermuda Cricket Board’s executive director, said: “This is the beginning of our three-year qualification campaign which will also aid in increasing our international ICC rankings.”Bermuda’s one appearance in the historic 50-overs World Cup came in the 2007 tournament staged in the Caribbean, when they failed to advance from the group stage after losing heavily to India, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh.England are the current champions, having beaten New Zealand in this year’s final at Lord’s in London, by virtue of hitting more boundaries after the teams tied and a super-over still could not separate them.last_img read more

Arsenal ready to launch £8m move for midfielder they let go in 2012

first_imgArsenal are plotting a move for former academy prodigy Oguzhan Ozyakup, claim reports in Turkey.The Gunners sold the midfielder to Besiktas in 2012 for around £350,000 but his performances for the Turkish giants over the last year-and-a-half have caught the eye of his former employers.According to AMK, Arsenal sent scouts to watch Ozyakup score the winner in Besiktas’ 1-0 win over Bursaspor on Sunday.Despite having plenty of midfield options, Arsenal remain on the lookout for a deep-lying midfielder with Mikel Arteta and Mathieu Flamini expected to leave at the end of the season.Ozyakup, 23, has become an integral member of Besiktas’ squad this season and it is understood Arsenal will have to pay a fee of around £8m to prise him away from Istanbul. 1 Oguzhan Ozyakup last_img

CLLR McDAID SLAMS CUT IN ONE PARENTS ALLOWANCE

first_imgCounty Councillor James Pat McDaid has slammed a situation where lone parents across Donegal have now been hit by an €80 cut.Cllr James Pat McDaid“More than 3,000 lone parent families in Donegal are about to be hit by a savage cut in their essential support from next week and many will be €80 worse off per week.”The FF Cllr James McDaid says he will continue to highlight the ongoing levels of austerity that now seem to be never ending. Cllr. McDaid said he knows many lone parents who are really struggling to make ends meet and this cut is something that must be reversed.He says that it will be a priority for FF to have this decision cancelled out if they are back in governmnet after the next election.Cllr Mc Daid said: “There are over 3,000 families in Donegal in receipt of the one parent family payment. Any of these whose children are aged over 7 years will suffer another cut in the payment from next week. From July 2nd, the age threshold for qualification is being slashed from 16 to 7 – so families who have children all over the age of 7 are no longer eligible.
This means that thousands of lone parents in Donegal who are dependent on this payment will lose up to €80 a week from July.“This is a savage cut, coming on the back of two consecutive cuts to the same support. Together, these three cuts imposed by the Minister for Social Protection Joan Burton have led to huge financial loses for working lone parents, pricing many out of the workplace and leaving huge obstacles for lone parents looking to access third level education. “I have spoken to some lone parents in recent week who say it is now impossible for them to stay in work. They simply cannot afford it. Since 2012, the Government has reduced the age and income eligibility thresholds and as a result, some lone parents in Donegal will now be down effectively €140 a week.”CLLR McDAID SLAMS CUT IN ONE PARENTS ALLOWANCE was last modified: June 27th, 2015 by StephenShare 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:Cllr James Pat McDaiddonegalLONE PARENTS ALLOWANCElast_img read more
