Windsor comeback falls short

TOLEDO As long as Palestine-Hutsonville wasnt putting Windsor away at the free throw line, the Blue Devils head coach Silas Pogue thought his team had a chance.

I thought, Here we go, Pogue said. It was fun.

The Tigers were 5-for-14 in the final 1:25 of Tuesdays game, until Trent Newlin became the first Pal-Hut player, during that stretch, to make both free throw attempts, giving the Tigers their last two points of a 72-65 regional win.

Windsor got within five points, 68-63, on two Alex Allen free throws with 23 seconds left, but that would be as close as the Blue Devils got.

Tristan Warner was called for an intentional foul on the ensuing inbounds pass, sending Pal-Huts Graham Alspach to the line. He made 1-of-2, but the Tigers got the ball back and Alspach added another free throw.

It was too late for the Blue Devils, even though Allen scored the last two of his 18 points on the next possession, with 10 seconds left.

The Blue Devils dug themselves into a hole twice in the second half, one at the beginning of the third quarter and again at the start of the fourth.

Pal-Hut used a quick 4-0 run to take a seven-point lead in the third quarter, which was its biggest at the time. The Tigers led by nine points after three.

We hit a cold spell in the third quarter, Pogue said. We got rattled. I thought we were tired.

Windsors nine-point output in the quarter was its smallest of the game, but Pal-Hut added to the lead from the start of the final quarter.

Peace hopes fade as Israel plans 381 more settler homes

Israel moved ahead Tuesday with plans for another 381 homes for West Bank settlers, prompting Palestinian charges it was more interested in building settlements than building peace.

It was the third such announcement in just over two weeks and raised to 2,530 the number of new settler homes announced since the start of the year.

The new construction will be in Givat Zeev, a settlement immediately south of the West Bank city of Ramallah, Peace Now spokesman Lior Amihai told AFP.

“The Israeli Civil Administration, which falls under the defence ministry, has published plans for the construction of 381 extra units in Givat Zeev,” he said.

The move comes just three weeks after Israel’s release on December 31 of 26 veteran Palestinian prisoners, in accordance with commitments under US-led peace talks.

“This is the third time since the last phase of Palestinian prisoner releases that the government has approved plans for new houses,” Amihai told AFP.

The announcement showed that the government of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is “not serious about the two-state solution and that its actions are contradictory with the negotiations,” Amihai charged.

On January 6, Israel approved plans for 272 new homes in various West Bank settlements. Four days later, it unveiled plans for more than 1,877 new units, some in annexed Arab east Jerusalem.

Last July, Israel and the Palestinians embarked on nine months of direct negotiations at the urging of US Secretary of State John Kerry.

But over the past six months, Israel has not slowed its construction on land the Palestinians want for a future state, raising questions over its commitment to the talks.

Monarchs win 4-2

January 4, 2014 – American Hockey League (AHL) Manchester Monarchs WILKES-BARRE, PA – Left wing Nick Deslauriers beat goaltender Jeff Deslauriers with 5:55 left in the game to give the Manchester Monarchs a 4-2 win over the Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins at the Mohegan Sun Arena at Casey Plaza on Saturday night.

Manchester (23-8-2-4) leads the Atlantic Division with 52 points. Wilkes-Barre/Scranton (19-10-1-3) is ranked second in the East Division with 42 points.

“We fought hard against Wilkes-Barre, and we earned the win,” said Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris. “An early greasy goal by Nick Shore gave us a lead and some jump. All four lines were skating well, and our defensive unit played pretty solid. A few late shifts, things got chaotic; J.F. Berube came up big for us. He made some key saves when it mattered most. Nick Deslauriers ripped a rocket past his namesake, Jeff Deslauriers, for the eventual game-winning goal late in regulation. This game was exactly what we had hoped for after last night’s effort.”

N. Deslauriers tallied his 12th goal of the season at 14:05 of the third period to give the Monarchs the win. Forward Ian O’Connor and right wing Sean Backman battled for the puck along the left wing half-wall. O’Connor fed the puck over to N. Deslauriers in the left face-off circle. N. Deslauriers turned and carried the puck a couple of strides before wristing a shot past J. Deslauriers’ blocker for the game-winning goal.

Center Nick Shore lit the lamp with his fifth goal of the season at 2:34 of the opening frame. Defenseman Andrew Campbell tossed the puck off the end wall and Shore picked it up to the left of the net. Shore shot the puck at J. Deslauriers from an odd angle. The puck bounced off of J. Deslauriers and into the back of the net to give the Monarchs a 1-0 advantage. Right wing Brandon Kozun also earned an assist on the opening goal.

Right wing Brian O’Neill doubled the Monarchs lead 52-seconds into the second period with his eighth tally of the season. Defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk sprung left wing Tanner Pearson down the right wing. Pearson put the brakes on at the right wing half wall as center Jordan Weal skated to the top of the crease. Pearson fed a pass into the slot where O’Neill grabbed the puck, spun around and flipped a backhand shot toward the net. O’Neill’s shot bounced through traffic, and up and over J. Deslauriers’ right pad to give the Monarchs a 2-0 lead.

Right wing Tom Kuhnhacki cut the Monarchs lead in half with his seventh goal of the season at 18:09 of the middle frame. Center Zack Torquato won the draw from the left face-off circle in the Monarchs zone. Torquato drew the puck back to Kuhnhacki who fired a slap shot past Monarchs goaltender J.F. Berube’s glove to bring the game to 2-1.

Center Nick Drazenovic tied the game, 2-2, at 7:43 of the final frame. Left wing Harry Zolnierczyk carried the puck behind the Monarchs net from right-to-left. As he came around the net, Zolnierczyk passed the puck to defenseman Nick D’Agostino who was skating into the slot. D’Agostino fired a one-timer that Berube saved and directed the rebound to his left. Drazenovic was at the bottom, inside corner of the right face-off circle to one-time the puck just inside the right post for his sixth goal of the season.

Pearson added an insurance goal at 19:31 of the third period with an empty net tally. Weal and O’Neill assisted on Pearson’s team-leading 13th goal of the season.

Berube (14-8-2) earned his 14th win of the season making 24 saves on 26 shots. J. Deslauriers (14-8-2) took his eighth loss of the season, stopping 22-of-25 shots.

Europe’s Biggest Underachieving Clubs as Manchester United Lose Again

Selling the best players and failing to replace them has never been a proven method of attaining success, and that policy is costing Lyon dearly this season. Down in 10th in Ligue 1, Lyon have won just one from their last five prior to the winter break, and they sit a mighty 15 points behind Lille, who occupy the third and final Champions League spot in the table.

Monarchs Find a Vey to Win

December 29, 2013 – American Hockey League (AHL) Manchester Monarchs MANCHESTER, NH – Center Linden Vey and left wing Tanner Pearson each collected three points as the Manchester Monarchs snapped their two-game losing streak with a 5-2 victory over the Hartford Wolf Pack at the Verizon Wireless Arena on Sunday.

Manchester (22-7-1-4) leads the Atlantic Division with 49 points. Hartford (11-16-0-4) is ranked fifth in the Northeast Division with 26 points.

“It was as close to 60 minutes as we’ve been in a long time,” said Monarchs Head Coach Mark Morris. “I think we got caught on a line change one time and other than that, just a little miscommunication on a check shortly after that gave them a couple of goals and I thought, ‘Oh boy, here we go again.’ But it was nice to get that fifth goal to right the ship and I thought we had a complete effort. It was nice to play four lines and I thought that J.F. Berube was real solid.”

Manchester scored their third goal of the night while on the power play at 14:25 of the first period. Center Jordan Weal circled from the left wing to the top of the zone before sending the puck to Vey as he skated inside the right face-off circle. Vey sent a wrist shot above Wolf Pack netminder Dov Grumet-Morris’ glove and into the top left corner of the net for the eventual game-winning goal. The score was his third tally of the season.

Hartford changed goaltenders after the Monarchs third goal of the night as netminder Jeff Malcolm replaced Grumet-Morris.

The Monarchs started the scoring early when Vey passed the puck from his own zone to Pearson as he was streaking along the right wall. Pearson controlled the pass and flipped the puck into the air directly in front of Grumet-Morris. Left wing Andy Andreoff flew toward the net from the left side and deflected the puck between Grumet-Morris’ legs for the 1-0 lead. The score came at the 4:37 mark of the first period and was Andreoff’s sixth goal of the season.

Manchester doubled their lead just two minutes and three seconds later as right wing A.J. Gale registered his fourth goal of the season at 6:40 of the first period. Forward Nick Shore passed the puck from the left wing to right wing Brian O’Neill, who fired a low shot toward the net. The puck bounced off of Grumet-Morris’ right pad and was corralled by an off-balance Gale who was just able to deflect the puck above the goaltender’s stick for the goal and a 2-0 advantage.

The Monarchs continued the scoring when Vey scored his second goal of the night and fourth tally of the season at the 14:02 point of the second period. Defenseman Andrew Bodnarchuk received a pass from Pearson before cycling the puck from the right face-off circle to Vey, who faked a shot from the top of the zone. Vey then skated down to the left of the net before firing a blocker-side shot that struck Malcolm’s right shoulder before finding the back of the net to give Manchester a 4-0 lead. The goal marked the third point of the game for both Vey and Pearson.

The Wolf Pack quickly responded less than two minutes later with their first goal of the night to bring the score back to within three. Hartford right wing Jesper Fast received a pass from defenseman Brendon Nash behind every Monarchs player on the ice and skated toward Manchester goaltender J.F. Berube for a breakaway scoring opportunity. Fast closed in on Berube with the puck to his right before bringing his stick to his far left and sending a backhanded shot above an outstretched Berube for the score. The goal was Fast’s second of the season and came at 15:45 in the second period to make the score 4-1.

Hartford made it a two-goal game just 30 seconds later when left wing Marek Hrivik brought the puck down near the right side of the net before spinning around and delivering a centering pass to defenseman Danny Syvret at the top of the zone. Syvret quickly gained control of the puck and blasted a slap shot past Berube’s glove and into the back of the net for the goal. The score was Syvret’s second tally of the season and made it a two-goal game at 16:15 in the second period.

Althouse: Chuck Schumer says both left- and right-wing blogs …

Excerpts from his interview with TNR’s Isaac Chotiner: CS: [One] thing the Tea Party does is threaten their fellow Republicans. They actually threaten them. If you punched inI used to do thisMarco Rubio when we were doing immigration reform, nine out of ten hard-right blogs were negative on him: attack after attack after attack….

[T]here are some on the far left who just have a visceral hatred of Wall Street. Its counterproductive.

IC: … Is this a problem for your party?

CS: You dont want to go after them for the sake of going after them. The left-wing blogs want you to be completely and always antiWall Street. Its not the right way to be. IC: So are the left-wing blogs as bad as the Tea Party ones in this case?

CS: Left-wing blogs are the mirror image. They just have less credibility and less clout.

Oh, you mean we haven’t pushed the Democratic Party outside of the national mainstream? Weird, then. On the other hand, it wasn’t bloggers trying to save Sen. Scott Brown’s hide in 2012, like good ol’ Chuck:

From my perspective, intra-party relations have never been better. It seems odd that Schumer is trying to start an internecine war at this very moment, particularly with a tough 2014 up ahead. And as the number three Democrat in the Senate, his words carry outsized weight. But it’s clear that the Wall Street wing of the Democratic Party is feeling the heat from its resurgent populist wing: the Warrens, Baldwins, Browns and Merkleys.

Republicans are locked in their own bloody civil war. Schumer (and his Third Way allies) may have just signaled that we may be in for some bloodshed of our own. In fact, he appears eager to lead Wall Street’s counter attack.
