To its credit, WG did shut out the Bees in the second half and got on the board thank to Marlee Pontello’s goal on a penalty kick with four minutes left, which made the final score 3-1 in B’ville’ favor.WG then beat Rome Free Academy by that same 3-1 margin on Thursday, with Ana Castro, Emily Dunning and Shannon Foster putting home the Wildcats’ goals as Caitlin Mills and Liz Croft combined for seven saves.In Saturday’s game against Elmira (Section IV), WG prevailed 2-0, with one goal in each half as Samantha Snyder and Sarah Petrus converted, freshman Eva Poissant added an assist and the duo of Croft and Mills got eight total saves. Even more impressive for the Wildcats was the way it played on Sunday against reigning state Class B champion Chenango Forks, unleashing its attack on the Blue Devils while prevailing in a 6-2 decision.Dunning led the way for WG, earning a three-goal hat trick, while Petrus, Poissant and Chrissy Van Allen also earned goals.Elsewhere in local girls soccer, Skaneateles had to travel Saturday to face undefeated Clinton, who proceeded to rip past the Lakers 7-0 as Maddie Luke scored three goals and one assist to pace Clinton, Avery Maxam adding two goals and two assists.This followed an 11-1 romp over Hannibal on Wednesday where Maddy Ramsgard, Maeve McNeil and Grace Bailey each landed two goals, with Grace Dower and Tatumn Pas’cal both finishing with one goal and one assist.Jordan-Elbridge got run over in a 7-0 defeat to Phoenix last Tuesday, with Breannah Demo and Taylor Petrie both scoring twice for the Firebirds as Madison Pelton had a goal and two assists. A 5-0 defeat to Mexico followed a day later.Solvay lost 2-0 to Christian Brothers Academy last Tuesday, with both of the Brothers’ goals coming in the first half as Delaney Hayden and Bella Roberson scored them. Bearcats goalie Nancy Gonzales made 11 saves.Bishop Ludden kept Tully scoreless in the first half, but lost 2-0 when the Black Knights’ Emma Byrne and Alexa Shay earned goals to overcome 23 saves by Gaelic Knights goalie Sarah Boyea. Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Playing four times in a six-day span, the West Genesee girls soccer team managed to win the last three of these contests following some wonderful charity work with one of its main league rivals.The Wildcats went to Baldwinsville last Tuesday, the game serving as a fund-raiser for brain cancer awareness. All proceeds from concessions, T-shirts and other donations went to the Preston Robert Tisch Brain Tumor Center, and more than $2,000 was raised.The game was good, too, the Wildcats hanging close until B’ville’s Simone Neivel scored twice in the last minute of the first half – once on a penalty kick, and then on a screaming 35-yard shot into the top left corner.

Patrick Gallagher1340031%31%$112,120 STELLAR WIND WORKS FOR MEETING WITH ‘THE QUEEN’Anticipation is gaining momentum hour by hour for Santa Anita’s Spring Meet showdown between champions Beholder and Stellar Wind in next Saturday’s Grade I, $400,000 Vanity Mile for fillies and mares, three and up.Three-time Eclipse Award winner Beholder, winner of 12 of 13 races at Santa Anita and 16 of 21 overall, eyes her eighth straight victory for Richard Mandella, who trains the six-year-old mare for owner B. Wayne Hughes’ Spendthrift Farm.“She’s doing great, couldn’t be better,” Mandella said of Beholder Saturday morning in the company of Hughes, who will be on hand for the Vanity. Asked tongue-in-cheek if he would take a walkover in the race, Mandella quipped, “That’s one race I could be confident about.”Stellar Wind, three-year-old filly champion of 2015, makes her first start since finishing second by a neck in the Breeders’ Cup Distaff at Keeneland last Oct. 30. The four-year-old daughter of Curlin worked five furlongs in company Saturday morning under regular rider Victor Espinoza in 59.60. Stablemate Too Fast to Pass was timed in 59.80.“She went good,” said Espinoza of Stellar Wind, whom he has ridden six straight times, all stakes, three of them Grade I’s, since owners Kosta and Peter Hronis purchased the chestnut filly for John Sadler to train over a year ago.“She worked in company and I let her stretch her legs down the lane. It’s been a while since she raced, but she’s ready.“Now she has to against The Queen (Beholder). It should be fun.”Added clocker Toby Turrell of The Yellow Sheet on Stellar Wind: “She’s right on point. She hasn’t missed a beat. Her works have been long, fast and she’s finishing good.”Stellar Wind has never lost at Santa Anita, winning all three of her starts including the Grade I Santa Anita Oaks last April 4.The Vanity is expected to draw a short field headed by the Big Two. Other entrants could include Divina Comedia, Lost Bus, Moyo Honey and Taris.

Chelsea interim boss Rafael Benitez warned the race for the top four would go to the wire after victory over Sunderland lifted his side into third.A Matthew Kilgallon own goal and Branislav Ivanovic’s back-heel turned around a half-time deficit as Chelsea fought back to see off Paolo Di Canio’s Black Cats.Their hopes of Champions League qualification were further boosted as Tottenham and Everton cancelled each other out at White Hart Lane.Chelsea would face a punishing schedule of matches should they reach both the FA Cup and Europa League finals – and Benitez said it was unlikely a top-four spot could be guaranteed by then.He said: “I don’t think that will be possible. Tottenham and Arsenal are pushing, Everton as well. So we’ll have to carry on until the end.“Hopefully we can do well this week with the games we have in the cup competitions.“Every week it [the table] will change. The main thing is to have a relaxed approach but not to panic because the next week, everything can change.“It’s important to keep the team winning and keep everybody on their toes, because we have another four games in the next week so you can’t stop.

Ten people, including eight young men returning home from an Army recruitment camp, were killed in Haryana’s Jind on Tuesday night when a speeding oil tanker collided with the autorickshaw they were travelling in near Ramrai village. One person was injured.The men, aged between 18 and 21, had gone to Hisar for medical examination as part of the recruitment drive. On their way back, they had boarded an autorickshaw. The oil tanker hit the vehicle on Hansi Road, around 8 km from Jind city, around 10 p.m., killing 10 people on the spot. The auto driver and a local passenger were among the dead.“While the oil tanker was overspeeding, the autorickshaw was overloaded. It seems the tanker driver hit the autorickshaw head-on in a bid to avoid the potholes on the road,” said Jind SP Ashwin. Tanker driver Bachu Khan, a resident of Barmer in Rajasthan, fled after the accident. He was arrested on Wednesday.The police team had a tough time pulling out the auto from under the tanker. The tanker was lifted with the help of two cranes. The victims included brothers, Sanjay and Parminder, from Badtana village. While Sanjay died, Parminder suffered grave injuries.

Three people went on a hunger strike, dozens camped outside the Muskrat Falls construction gates, and about 35 people occupied the offices of Nalcor Energy, a provincial corporation for a short time shutting down operations for several days.While dozens of people have faced civil charges for violating a court injunction obtained by Nalcor last year, these are the first criminal charges come out of an ongoing investigation by the RCMP.18 men and 10 women face a total of 60 charges including:• Disobeying a court order• Mischief over $5000• Mischief• Taking a motor vehicle without consent• Breaches of a court orderIn a media release, the RCMP said it respects and protects the right to peaceful demonstrations as guaranteed under the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.Watch video from the Land Protectors being charged here: Muskrat FallsNot everyone involved has been served.Innu Elder Bart Jack lives in Sheshatshui and is waiting to hear whether he’ll be charged.Jack describes the rallies and occupation of the Muskrat Falls site as peaceful.“We were all together, the settlers, Inuit and Innu,” said Jack. “It all culminated in the fact that we appreciated each other and felt had a common cause.”The group who shut down the Nalcor site only came out after Newfoundland and Labrador Premier Dwight Ball reached an agreement with the Innu and Inuit leaders to address environment concerns over Muskrat Falls.Many feared the trees and soil in the flood zone of the dam will create methylmercury and contaminate traditional food sources downstream, and many still have concerns over the structural integrity of the dam in an area called the North Spur.Labrador land protectors continue to oppose the project calling for Muskrat Falls to be shut down and are planning another day of Action in Happy Valley-Goose Bay on Sunday.The 28 people charged will make their first court appearance on April [email protected] @trinaroache

Kolkata: Within a few months of peace restoring in Darjeeling, it has once again turned out to be the favourite hill destination for people from different parts of the country and abroad alike.It may be mentioned that the tourism industry in Darjeeling had received a major hit, with trouble engulfing the Hills. Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee had taken necessary steps with requests from the people of the Hills and had held an all party meeting for restoration of peace. Subsequent steps were also taken for development in the Hills. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsAccording to Suvasree Ganguly, who looks after the operation part in the West Bengal Tourism Development Corporation, said: “Booking for the Darjeeling Tourist Lodge starts six months in advance and it remains booked most of the time.”There were also a good number of enquiries related to different tourist spots in Bengal, in the Parjatan Utsav 2018, that kicked off on Friday. It has been organised by the state’s Tourism Department and Travel Agents Association of Bengal, at Khudiram Anusilan Kendra. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Merc, 2 B’deshi bystanders killedThe fair, that started on Friday, will continue till Sunday. It will remain open from 11 am to 8 pm. A total of 65 tour operators have participated in the fair.In the past few months, the transportation facilities have improved and people can now reach Darjeeling from the plains more easily.Besides Darjeeling, the people have also enquired about different places in the state, including places in North Bengal like Dooars and Lataguri.It may be mentioned that for the first time, a business summit was also organised exclusively for the Hills, which was held in Darjeeling. So, the number of people visiting Darjeeling for business purposes would also increase. It may be mentioned that the travel loving people of the state have also shared their interest of visiting other places in the country, during their visit in the fair. After listening to people, the operators felt that many of them are also showing interest in visiting places like Leh, Ladakh and some parts of the North East. People are favouring Leh and Ladakh, as at present Kashmir is not a favourable place for them to visit, owing to the situation prevailing there.It may be mentioned that now, people are also preferring to visit hamlets close to Darjeeling, where home stays are coming up in a big way. One of the main reasons for visiting such hamlets is to enjoy the scenic and natural beauty of the place. There are many such hamlets, where home stays are now available, from where clear view of Kanchenjungha is possible.It may be mentioned that with the development of infrastructure in the Hills, more tourists are getting attracted to Darjeeling and it is one of the reasons behind the increase in passenger load at Bagdogra Airport.
“Nitish Kumar dashed the dreams of mentor Jayprakash Narayan as well socialist leader Karpoori Thakur by joining hands with the Congress for the sake of power,” Shah said at an NDA rally at the historic Gandhi Maidan before flagging off ‘Parivartan Rath’ in several parts of the state.Taking a dig at Kumar, Shah said: “What did you do with George Fernandes and Jitan Ram Manjhi?” Charging Kumar with “backstabbing” the mandate of people given to NDA in 2010 elections, Shah took potshots at him for joining hands with arch rival Lalu Prasad Yadav for the sake of power. Also Read – Need to understand why law graduate’s natural choice is not legal profession: CJIThe NDA rally showed a picture of unity with top leaders of the constituents present on stage. Lok Janshakti Party (LJP) president and Union Minister Ramvilas Paswan, former Chief Minister and Hindustani Awam Morcha (HAM) supremo Jitan Ram Manjhi, Rashtriya Lok Samata Party (RLSP) leader and Union Minister of State Upendra Kushwaha, Union Minister Ananth Kumar and several BJP leaders of the state as well of national level were present.Shah flagged off 160 rath (chariot), which he addressed as ‘Dhoot’ (representative of PM Narendra Modi), which would roll across Bihar spreading message of development under the NDA at the Centre and also “expose” the “unholy” alliance between Kumar and Lalu Prasad Yadav. Also Read – Health remains key challenge in India’s development: KovindWhile painting a dim picture of secular alliance of Kumar, Yadav and Congress, Shah highlighted the performance of the Modi government in the past one year, which he said would be repeated in Bihar too by the future NDA government.Shah made a blistering attack at Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) president Lalu Prasad Yadav, claiming that Kumar avoids his photograph in state hoardings, while Congress president Sonia Gandhi shuns him. “Still he (Lalu) considers himself a leader of the alliance,” he sarcastically commented on the RJD chief. Shah wondered if Kumar wanted to bring back days of “jungle raj” in Bihar, by joining hands with Lalu Prasad Yadav, whose 15-year rule was “remembered for bad law and order situation”. Indicating that PM Modi and the performance of his government in past one year would be the poll plank of the NDA in Bihar elections, Shah talked about Modi’s background as a tea seller and hailing from extremely backward caste. “While some leaders would try to whip up caste and communal tension, remedy of all ills of Bihar is in ‘vikas’ (development) for which NDA government is needed in the state,” he said.He appealed to the people to give an opportunity to NDA in Bihar as they did for the Centre to “make Bihar number one state in the country.” Shah repeated MP’s slogan of “Congress mukt Bharat” and claimed that Bihar would be another destination after Haryana, Jharkhand, Maharashtra and J&K in the process.Attacking the Bihar CM, Shah said “…how much efforts you (Kumar) make to put as many posters you want and remove ones of PM and BJP, but when ballot would be counted NDA would be in position to form government.” He said Narendra Modi would unveil the future roadmap of Bihar development “when he would address a rally at Muzaffarpur on July 25”. Shah stressed that Bihar polls are very important as its effect would not be limited to the state, but spread across the country “as a message to uproot all forces opposed to dalits, poor and downtrodden.”Shah appealed to people to ensure NDA wins more than 185 seats in September-October Assembly elections and forms a strong government. Flagging off 160 raths (chariots) christened ‘Parivartan rath’, Shah said these would be increased to 260 soon to reach out to every village in the state.In the 243-member Assembly, 122 is the magic figure for forming the government.Shah referred to NDA winning 13 out of 24 seats in recent Legislative Council polls and asserted that “people have made it clear which way the wind is blowing.” Earlier, Union Minister and LJP chief Ramvilas Paswan described the pact between Nitish Kumar and Lalu Prasad as “Lathbandhan” (alliance of warring forces). “Both are hugging each other by holding daggers in their hands to stab each other,” he said. To buttress his charge, he said that JD(U) has lost Legislative Council seats in Patna, Saran and Madhubani “because of rebel Yadav candidates having background in RJD”.
