Lakepoint celebrates 50 years of Oilmen’s golf

first_imgThis was Mckinnon’s second year playing in the tournament, and second in the Championship Flight. This year, the victor had to defeat Gene Danyluk, Darren Leflar, Kevin Mcnee and finally Buddy Streeper to earn the tournament championship.In the first flight, sponsored by Weatherford, first place went to Tom West, who defeated Gary Decker in Saturday’s final round of 18 holes.In the Halliburton second Flight, Jeremy Clothier beat Jim McDonald in Saturday’s finals.Lakepoint Golf and Country Club General Manager Troy Knight shared his thoughts on how the tournament played out.Advertisement “I think generally it was a really good weekend, especially with the weather Wednesday and predictions for the days of the tournament. The course was really wet but the Oilmen were all very respectful of the course and it was a lot of fun…I think it goes to show a very respectful relationship we have with the Oilmen.”The Lakepoint Golf and Country Club has been a host of the tournament for over a few decades, something Knight attributes to the very strong relationship between the two organizations. In the Fort St. John Petroleum Association Championship flight, Justin Mckinnon emerged victorious following 4 rounds of match-play, defeating heavy favourite Buddy Streeper in a final 18-hole championship showdown.Mckinnon earned himself a 3-2 victory, meaning he was lead by three holes with only two left to play. His victory was really cemented along the back nine of the course, winning his final four holes en route to the Championship Flight victory.He spoke about his fellow competitors, as well as how lady luck also made an appearance throughout the weekend.- Advertisement -“I played some tough competitors this weekend, especially in the finals where I hung on to beat Buddy. I was lucky today, made a few big putts and went on to win my last four holes. I also put myself at a disadvantage starting my final round, as I showed up late, missing the first hole. Luckily I birdied hole two to pull even entering hole three.”When asked about any shots that stood out in his mind, this year’s champ talked about the events that took place on his final hole of the tournament.”I hooked my drive into the trees, but had a great recovery, hitting my five-wood 200 plus yards, then tapping in a twelve-footer for a par.”Advertisementlast_img read more

Exclusive – Former Liverpool star admits fears over Balotelli deal

first_imgEmile Heskey admits there are huge question marks over the impact Mario Balotelli could have at Liverpool.The Italian is on the verge of a £16million move to Anfield as Brendan Rodgers seeks to add an extra cutting edge to his frontline.There is uniform agreement the deal represents good value for money, but fans and pundits alike continue to question the wisdom of the transfer.And Heskey is no exception.“In football terms it’s great business,” he told the Alan Brazil Sports Breakfast. “He’s a really good player. If you look at his goals per game ratio, he’s up there with the best, but it’s the other stuff you get with him that you question.“The thing for me is his work ethic. Will he buy into Rodgers’ philosophy? Just look at how hard the players work when they don’t have the ball. Will he do that?“Every manager thinks he can change someone…”last_img read more

Jesus could make early City return in League Cup final

first_img0Shares0000Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus could be back on the field for the English League Cup final © AFP / Oli SCARFF MANCHESTER, United Kingdom, Feb 23 – Manchester City striker Gabriel Jesus could make a shock return for Sunday’s League Cup final against Arsenal but Pep Guardiola has doubts over Raheem Sterling’s fitness for the Wembley showpiece. Brazil international Jesus has not featured for the Premier League leaders since he suffered a knee ligament injury against Crystal Palace on December 31.However, he has returned to training and Guardiola, chasing his first silverware for the club, revealed the 20-year-old is in contention to face the Gunners at Wembley.“We’ll see on Saturday. It is the third training session for Gabriel and every day is better,” said the City boss, who saw his side’s quadruple dreams ended by an FA Cup fifth-round defeat at the hands of League One Wigan earlier this week.“He’s so important. When people say about four titles, you have to be everything going well, when your full-back is injured six months, it’s more difficult, without Gabriel it’s so difficult.“Sergio Aguero has been incredible, but sometimes you need to be fresh. At Wigan we could have played two up front in the last minutes if Gabriel had been on the bench — now we have that chance with Gabriel.”England forward Sterling, who is struggling with a muscle injury, will be assessed ahead of the match.– Bravo in goal –Guardiola also confirmed that he will stick with Claudio Bravo in goal for the final, having used the Chilean in the competition ahead of first-choice goalkeeper Ederson.“The fans have an opinion but I’m the manager,” Guardiola said. “You put all the fans in front of me and everyone has their opinion but we are here for the club.“Against Wolves he had three one-on-ones, saved three penalties, he deserves to play in the final and he’s going to play.“The locker room is important in the final and without him we would not be here. He’s going to play.”Guardiola dismissed suggestions that victory over Arsenal could usher in an era of dominance for City similar to the period he enjoyed at Barcelona.“Not even in Barcelona when we won the first title in the cup did I expect to win 14 titles in four years,” said Guardiola. “I’m more pragmatic.“I think in football it’s a big mistake to think what might happen in the next three years. It’s a big mistake for our heads, our targets, it makes no sense.“When people asked in the beginning, about winning four titles (this season), I said of course we’ll try, but the big teams have not been able to do that — the big Liverpools, the big Uniteds, the big Arsenals, the big Chelseas.Claudio Bravo, who saved the final penalty in a shootout against Leicester, will be in goal for Manchester City in the League Cup final © AFP/File / PAUL ELLIS“So why should I think we can do it? We have a final and we try to do what we have done.“Then after, in the Premier League, we have six games to be champions in the most prestigious tournament in this country. Then we’ll see next year. Then at the end of our time together we will see what we have done.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today)last_img read more

Everton fans excited to welcome Gor home

first_img“It should be exciting. I watched their game on TV against Everton in Tanzania last year and I think they are a pretty decent side. That’s as far as I know about them,” one of the fans said.When I explained to them Gor Mahia’s pedigree and what they have achieved back home, they were excited.“Wow! They must be a very good side. 17 time champions? That’s some good team. They have played other teams in the continent so they should be a very strong squad,” he further stated.Another fan I spoke to said he didn’t know nothing about the Kenyan champions, but said he would come to the stadium just to watch them.Gor Mahia assistant coach enjoying the Brighton v Everton game at Goodison Park“To be honest mate I don’t know much. I have only seen their logo in the ads but I have to come and watch them. I love Everton and I always love to be here when they play. Tuesday is no different,” another noted.At our Hotel in the outskirts of Liverpool’s city centre, we met with a season ticket holder Tony Elston who amazingly travelled with Everton to Tanzania last year when they played Gor and he vividly carries memories from that day.“It was an amazing time. Beatiful country, beautiful people in a beautiful stadium…. It was an amazing experience to watch Gor Mahia and I am so happy they have now come to England,” Elston said, speaking to Capital Sports.The season ticket holder believes Everton are much better than they were last year and says Gor should expect a very tough game, and notes it might be hard for them to win at Goodison.The Goodison park was full to capacity on Saturday November 3, 2018 when Everton played Brighton“They should expect a much better Everton. The team has moved on a lot with better players, a faster team and a more attack minded coach. There might not be too many first team players playing, maybe six, but they should still expect a tough game,” he said.Will Gor win? “No, I don’t think so. But I hope it will be close. Last year was 2-1, very close but I am hoping it will be more competitive. Maybe, you will score a few goals and leave with a smile on your face,” joked Elston.Tickets for the game have been selling at £5 all round (Sh662) and £1 for kids (Sh129) and a section of fans were already buying them at the stadium on Saturday.Being a Champions League week, it is not expected that the stadium will be full but attendance has been approximated at close to 10,000.Gor Mahia head coach Dylan Kerr says a bus loads of his friends will be coming down from Scotland and Ireland to cheer on the team.-Timothy Olobulu is reporting from Liverpool, United Kingdom-0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Fans streaming in to the Goodison park, home of English Premier League side Everton FCLIVERPOOL, United Kingdom, Nov 6 – In and around Goodison park from Saturday, adverts were all over, popularizing the historic Everton v Gor Mahia SportPesa Trophy friendly match set to be played Tuesday evening, with fans excited to see their team play against a Kenyan side.A few fans Capital Sport spoke to over the weekend as Everton FC played Brighton at Goodison Park say they are excited to see what Gor have to offer, saying they will come in to enjoy the game and possibly, give support to K’Ogalo on their maiden UK adventure.last_img read more

You’re all set! “It’s tough to say how important track position is going to be,” Johnson said. “The thing I’m most excited about is having the first pit stall.” Johnson and Jeff Gordon both have 5,210 points, but Johnson’s series-high six victories give him the edge. Gordon has four. Six of the Chase drivers will start in the top 10 of Sunday’s race. Denny Hamlin was third, Kurt Busch fourth, Martin Truex Jr. fifth, Kevin Harvick was seventh and Matt Kenseth was 10th. Other Chase drivers saw Carl Edwards in 15th and Kyle Busch in 22nd. Gordon (second in the standings) and Tony Stewart (third), both former champions, will start a disappointing 27th and 28th. Clint Bowyer, who gained a huge confidence boost with his first career win last week at New Hampshire, was the worst Chase qualifier. He started in the back of the field at 42nd after having to qualify on owner’s points. He did not record a lap speed. From news services Jimmie Johnson will start Dover first in the standings and on the track. The Nextel Cup points leader got another boost in his bid for a second straight title, taking the top spot with a lap of 154.765 mph Friday at Dover (Del.) International Speedway, his second pole of the season. Johnson leads the points standings heading into the second race of NASCAR’s Chase for the Nextel Cup championship. He hasn’t started worse than ninth in any of the last eight races. last_img read more

Rabbi fights for social justice

first_imgWOODLAND HILLS – How you respect and act toward other people is at the core of the spiritual examination that Jews will tackle next month during the holy days of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year, and Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Rabbi Steven B. Jacobs, from Temple Kol Tikvah, said he first realized the importance of respect when he was just 9, and heard an adult use a racial slur against one of his friends as they played together outside his grandparents’ home in Boston. “The man said, ‘Get out of my way, you …’ I had never heard that word. This child I was playing with was just like me, to me. I was upset and shaken,” said Jacobs, who plans to retire next June as the senior rabbi at the Reform congregation. “I ran inside and told my father, who took off after the guy. My father came back and patted our heads. I don’t know what he said to the guy but I knew something was wrong with the world at the age of 9.” Although he grew up in an Orthodox Jewish family, Jacobs gravitated to Reform Judaism because the movement emphasized social justice. Reform Judaism had also begun to place an emphasis on what the Torah prophets had to say about how to treat people and that especially appealed to Jacobs. “What I hope people have learned from me is, don’t fear the people who are different from you or that the stranger can’t add to your life,” Jacobs said. “We can all grow and we can change. We can be more caring and less selfish and self-centered. That’s the most important thing.” Jacobs was ordained in 1967 at Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati. He moved to the San Fernando Valley in 1970 and was the senior rabbi for 14 years at Temple Judea in Tarzana. He has been at Temple Kol Tikvah, “the Voice of Hope,” since 1984. “He is absolutely obsessed with social justice. He has reached out to the non-Jewish religious community in a way that few rabbis have,” said longtime friend Rabbi Harold Schulweis from Valley Beth Shalom in Encino. “He has deep loyalty to his tradition and he wants to see that tradition respond to the needs of the world.” Jacobs has traveled the world for decades for causes he feels passionate about, including seeking shelter for Vietnamese “boat people,” marching for civil rights and going with a 1999 delegation, co-led by the Rev. Jesse Jackson, to help obtain the release of three American soldiers who had been captured by Serb forces in Yugoslavia. “I admire him as a friend who has been a part of the struggle for, and promotes, peace and justice,” said Dr. Nazir Khaja from the Islamic Information Service in Los Angeles. “I admire his sensitivity to the issues and seeing other people’s pain. He is an exceptional rabbi who has a particular gift to bridge the gap between people of different faiths.” After his retirement, Jacobs plans to stay involved in activities at Temple Kol Tikvah, collaborating on a book with Khaja and working more closely with Los Angeles County Sheriff Lee Baca’s Muslim American Homeland Security Congress. “What I’ve learned from him about Judaism is that although ritual is very important, it’s important to ‘pray with your feet,’ said Linda Abrams, Jacobs’ wife, a nurse practitioner. “The idea of getting out there and doing for those who need a voice, that’s really how Steven prays.” Rabbi Steven B. Jacobs will lead the 7 p.m. Shabbat service Friday and a Selichot service at 10 p.m. Oct. 1 at Temple Kol Tikvah, 20400 Ventura Blvd., Woodland Hills. Call (818) 348-0670 or see www.KolTikvah.org.
