Ellsworth/Sumner football optimistic despite season-opening loss

They were far from perfect, but a series of mental mistakes — seven turnovers and multiple penalties, for instance — had prevented them from playing the Lynx much closer than they otherwise could have.Ellsworth/Sumner quarterback Connor Crawford throws a pass during the second half of a high school football game against Mattanawcook Academy on Sept. 2 in Ellsworth. PHOTO COURTESY OF MEGHAN SCHULTZYet head coach Duane Crawford, whose team was all too familiar with blowout losses against Mattanawcook from its meetings with the Lynx in previous seasons, saw that as a positive. As such, he had an encouraging message for his dissatisfied team.This is placeholder textThis is placeholder text“You know what I saw tonight? I saw a team that’s really close to figuring it out,” Crawford told his players. “Think about how many chances we had. The mistakes I saw and the other coaches saw, those are fixable mistakes. Let’s work on fixing them.”Although Mattanawcook began the game with a 14-0 lead halfway through the first quarter, that could hardly have been attributed to a poor performance from Ellsworth/Sumner’s defense. In both instances, the Lynx took over deep in Eagles territory after Ellsworth/Sumner turned the ball over to them good field position. They scored touchdowns both times.Despite those early touchdowns, Ellsworth/Sumner still showed signs of making this contest competitive early on. The Eagles responded to Mattanawcook’s second score with a long touchdown drive, one that ended with a touchdown run from Jacob Shorey and a successful 2-point conversion that made the score 14-8 with 3:58 left in the first quarter.“Mattanawcook has a good team, and they deserved this win, but I don’t feel like they outmuscled us or beat us up too much,” Crawford said. “It’s disappointing when you beat yourselves in certain areas, but as a coach, you know you can get those things turned around.”Unfortunately for Ellsworth/Sumner (0-1), the team continued to make the same mistakes throughout the game. Even when it looked as if the Eagles would finally get a second touchdown as they reached the red zone with just over a minute left in the second half, Mattanawcook (1-0) returned an interception 100 yards for a score of its own.After each of Ellsworth/Sumner’s players and coaches had gathered in the south end zone, senior lineman Keith Jordan spoke up. He wanted the Eagles, who were scheduled to have Monday off for Labor Day, to hold a 5 p.m. practice instead. Other players agreed; this type of loss wasn’t acceptable, and they wanted to rectify the mistakes that made the score look more lopsided than it really was.“I saw so much improvement tonight compared to what we did last week [in the preseason game] against MDI,” assistant coach Toog McKay told his players. “We’re very close — very close, guys — to taking that next step, and we’re getting better as the season goes on. That’s all you can ask for.”Ellsworth/Sumner’s next game will be on the road against the Orono Red Riots (1-0) at 7 p.m. Friday, Sept. 9. The Eagles lost to the Red Riots 36-12 last season.“We’ll see how we improve over the week, but I really think we’re going to be competitive [against Orono],” Crawford said. “It’ll be a big test, but we have to learn from tonight and get ready for it.”Correction: An earlier version of this article misstated Ellsworth/Sumner’s first opponent last year. The Eagles opened the 2015 season against Orono. Bio Hospice volunteers help families navigate grief and find hope – September 12, 2020last_img read more

Safer Teen Driving Initiative

first_imgTo The Editor:A new, first-in-the-nation education initiative designed to help high school coaches make student athletes aware of the New Jersey Graduated Driver License (GDL) program has been unveiled by the NJSIAA (New Jersey State Interscholastic Athletic Association) and the NJ Teen Safe Driving Coalition. The New Jersey GDL program, which took effect on January 1, 2001, is a three-step licensing system that helps new drivers gain behind-the-wheel experience before becoming fully licensed. The steps consist of the learner’s permit, the probationary license, and the basic or unrestricted license.The two organizations are distributing a pamphlet, “A Game Plan for Talking to Your Student Athletes About New Jersey’s Graduated Driver License Program,” to athletic directors and coaches across the state in an effort to help them educate their student athletes about the proven principles of the GDL program. Along with information and statistics about how and why the GDL works to reduce teen crash risk, the pamphlet also includes a sample student athlete code of conduct that athletic directors and coaches may choose to use.“It’s our responsibility to help athletic directors and coaches protect student athletes by promoting initiatives aimed at keeping these kids safe,” says NJSIAA Executive Director Steve Timko. “We believe making the announcement at the start of National Teen Safe Driving Week is the ideal way to get everyone on board.”The crucial need for the GDL program was illustrated in tragic fashion this August, when four football players from Linwood’s Mainland Regional High School died in a car crash on the Garden State Parkway. Four other players were injured. Had the GDL provisions – which allow the teen driver to have only one passenger in the vehicle – been followed, this deadly crash may have been prevented.“The leading cause of teen crashes in New Jersey is distraction and inattention, which is prompted not just by the use of cell phones and texting, but other passengers,” adds Pam Fischer, Leader of the NJ Teen Safe Driving Coalition and the mother of a high school student athlete. “The provisions of the GDL program address those things that cause the greatest risk for teens and that has helped drive teen crashes, injuries and fatalities in our state to record lows. But it’s important that athletic directors and coaches know the facts and can share them with their athletes so that they not only have a winning season, but a safe one.”The GDL “game plan” pamphlet can be downloaded from the NJSIAA website at www.njsiaa.org.NJ State Interscholastic Athletics AssociationRobbinsvillelast_img read more

AMERICAN STAKES QUOTES – FRIDAY MAY 6, 2016

first_imgJOCKEY QUOTES JOE TALAMO, HOME RUN KITTEN, WINNER: “This horse has so much confidence, he works so well in the mornings and Dave always keeps him fresh so I just tried to be a good pilot today.“The track feels good. It feels great when you win. It’s easy to run on, it’s pretty versatile and you can kind of do what you want out there.“He’s done an unbelievable job training this horse. ‘You’re my man Dave!’” DAVID HOFMANS, HOME RUN KITTEN, WINNER: “He had a slight temperature the day we were supposed to ship him (to the San Francisco Mile up at Golden Gate) and with this race coming up, we didn’t want to take a chance. We thought we’d run him here and we didn’t want to miss the opportunity in case he got up there and he got sick.“We had decided to run anyway (even when the race came off the turf) because Joe has been after me for years now to run him on the dirt. We thought we’d give him a shot in here even if it came off the dirt.“He overcame my training. I was lost with him. His last two or three races were SO uncharacteristic and I was totally lost. I had no reason whatsoever. I even gave him time off, gave him a few months off, turned him out because we campaigned him so hard and he came back super and stronger but just ran like hell.“We were lost and I came into this race like ‘who’s going to show up today?’ Let’s hope he’s back on track because he’s a nice horse, real nice horse.” NOTES: The winning owner is Susan Osborne of Glendale, CA, who races as Tarabilla Farms, Inc.

Messi staying with Barcelona to 2021 after new contract

APBARCELONA, Spain — Barcelona enjoyed a big win on Saturday (Sunday Manila time) without even playing.Lionel Messi finally put Barcelona and its fans at ease by signing a new contract that will keep the Argentine forward at the Spanish club through 2021 when he will be 34.ADVERTISEMENT “The club … is my home,” Messi said. “My dream was to finish my career at Barca and we are moving down that path.”The club did not reveal many financial details, including Messi’s salary. According to El Mundo newspaper, Messi will receive 30 million euros ($35.8 million) per season along with a signing bonus of 50 million euros ($59.6 million).FEATURED STORIESSPORTSRedemption is sweet for Ginebra, Scottie ThompsonSPORTSMayweather beats Pacquiao, Canelo for ‘Fighter of the Decade’SPORTSBack on the throneWith his former contract set to run out next summer, Messi would have been free to listen to offers from other teams on Jan. 1. That approaching deadline generated speculation Messi could follow Neymar’s lead and leave.Messi’s new deal includes a buyout clause of 700 million euros ($835 million). The massive figure is aimed at keeping away even the likes of Paris Saint-Germain, which secured Neymar in the offseason by triggering his buyout clause with a record 222 million euros ($262 million) payout. Club president Josep Bartomeu said Barcelona and Messi already agreed to a new deal in June, but that following Neymar’s departure they revised it to more than double the buyout clause. It was originally set at 300 million euros ($358 million).Bartomeu said the new contract “is more in line with the current situation in the ever-changing world of football.”Barcelona announced in July that Messi agreed to a new deal that it would make official “in the coming weeks.” The wait that turned into months eventually caused many Barcelona supporters to fear the worst.Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said having Messi signed up for four more years should help the team focus on its strong Spanish league and Champions League campaigns this season. Barcelona visits second-place Valencia on Sunday seeking a win that would give it a commanding lead as it tries to retake the Liga title from Real Madrid.“I am not an expert in contract clauses, but if we look at what happened with Neymar, then you have the answer,” Valverde said. “The renewal of Leo is great news for the club. It calms everything down, especially all that surround the team. We already were calm because we see him train every day and we see his commitment to the club.”ADVERTISEMENT Messi has been the heart and soul of Barcelona for more than a decade.A five-time world player of the year, Messi has helped Barcelona win 30 titles since he arrived from Argentina at age 13. That haul includes four Champions Leagues and eight Spanish leagues.Now in his 14th season, Messi is the club’s all-time leading scorer with 523 in 602 matches.He received his fourth Golden Shoe award on Friday for leading all of Europe’s leagues in scoring last season.“The objective is to continue achieving things, fill the club’s trophy cases, and keep making history at Barca,” Messi said. “We’ve been lucky enough to have won a great many things and I hope there will be more in the future.”Sports Related Videospowered by AdSparcRead Next MOST READ Kiss-and-tell matinee idol’s conquests: True stories or tall tales?

The active weather pattern will continue

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest The active weather pattern will continue. The week of July 11th will bring a very warm and humid week with rounds of showers and thunderstorms. Some storms may be severe at times with high winds and heavy rains. Maximum temperatures will be in the 80s to lower 90s this week with overnight lows in the 60s to lower 70s. Temperatures will average about 5 degrees above normal for the week. Relief from the very warm weather will occur this coming weekend again with lower humidity and temperatures returning to not far from normal, likely a few degrees below the normal highs which are generally in the 80s now. Rainfall will average 1 to 2 inches but again will be highly variable due to thunderstorms ranging form less than an inch to over 3 inches in places. Normal rainfall is near 1 inch for the week.The week of July 17 will feature a pleasant start with a return of hot weather. Scattered storms will return as well as the week goes along. Overall, the week of July 17 will continue to support rapid growth of crops with the warm weather. With ample soil moisture in most areas, this will keep the heat in check with temperatures likely not getting too much above 90 which is not too far from ideal heat, just a bit high.The week of July 24 will see a return to more normal temperatures with rainfall being above normal again. The switch to drier weather this summer just has not happened. We thought a switch would occur sometime in July but it looks more likely to occur in August now.Drought this summer is confined to the far western corn belt of western Iowa and eastern Nebraska and it is a fairly small area. The main drought area is in South and North Dakota into Montana and is more focused on the wheat areas. Most of the corn and soybean areas are seeing fairly decent conditions this summer.The 16-day rainfall forecast is for 2-4 inches across Ohio from south to north on average. Normal is 2 inches so no real dry concerns are seen the next few weeks. You can see the latest 16-day rainfall forecast from the NOAA Ohio River Forecast Center in the map below. Most of the corn and soybean belt at least an inch of rainfall except far western areas including Nebraska and eastern South Dakota the next two weeks.last_img read more

A Lesson Learned the Hard Way at Lunch

first_imgWhen I was very young, naïve, and new to selling, I relentlessly called a big prospect in my territory. She refused my meeting requests dozens of times. I had no idea then that a sales call requires a value proposition, some value the contact will gladly trade their time to obtain. So I did what I thought might work, and I invited this prospect to lunch.I picked the prospect up in my car, and she requested that I take her to an Asian restaurant in Century City. When we sat down, she ordered two appetizers, one for now, and one that she could take with her for later. It was a little weird, but I said nothing. Then she ordered two entries, one for now, and one she could take with her at the conclusion of our lunch “meeting.”There was no lunch “meeting.” There was only lunch. Every time I tried to ask her about her business, she changed the subject. The more I attempted to engage with her, the more awkward it was to talk at all. We were both silent, and one of us was in way over his head.After the lunch plates had been cleared, my prospective client ordered two desserts. She looked at me and asked me if it was alright, knowing there was no way I could object having already waived my rights. You know by now that my prospect ate one of the desserts and had the second put in the already large bag of food she was taking with her.I was always upset by the fact that this prospect took advantage of me. I was 23 years old and had no experience to know what to do in such a situation. I had no language available to me. I suffered through it.It took me years to absorb the lesson she taught me. I had no value proposition, and I believed that I could buy her time and attention for the price of lunch. Because I thought so little of her, she thought the same of me. From that point forward, I started taking prospects lunch only after I had a discovery meeting and I always made it a working lunch.last_img read more
