West Florida Blanks Another GSC Foe

first_img Share West Florida Blanks Another GSC Foe Oct. 21, 2007 Box Score  Carollton, Ga. – West Florida (12-2-0, 7-0-0 GSC) continued to roll through the Gulf South Conference, when they record their sixth straight shutout over a conference conference foe, West Georgia (7-11-0, 2-5-0 GSC), 4-0 Sunday afternoon on the Wolves campus.The Argonauts controlled the flow on the field and for the 10th straight fixture the defense held their opponent under 10 shots, as West Florida out shot the Wolves 11-7. West Florida has now out scored their GSC rivals 29-1 in 2007.The Argonauts cracked the score board in the 30th minute of action when Sheka Codner sent a cross into the box and Dernelle Mascall flicked the ball over the head of the Wolves keeper.Three minutes before the end of the first half Mascall struck again when she gathered in a attempted clear by the Wets Georgia defense and rifled a shot from the top of the box for her 18th goal of the season. The sophomore is now second in school history for single season goals, one shy of the record set by Brianna Oeser in 2005.Following the break the Argonauts would mirror their first half performance controlling the ball and netting two goals.Amanda Wallace became the 15th Argonaut to score a goal this season when she tucked away her first goal in her West Florida career following a Mascall cross.Alison Riley finished the scoring when she hauled in a thru ball from Niala Owens inside the box, turned and finished.”Every game presents different problems,” said head coach Joe Bartlinski, who surpassed the century mark in career wins on Friday. “West Georgia was battling hard for a conference playoff spot and they played a tough physical game.”Up next for the Argonauts is a final GSC home fixture, before the conference tournament, against rival Montevallo.”For a team that has nine new starters we have done pretty well but we are not there yet. I am pleased how the new players have stepped up but there is still a lot of work to be done, especially with Montevallo coming up.”Kick off at the UWF Sports Complex is set for 5 p.m., this Friday when West Florida takes on the Falcons. “Live Stats” will be available at goargos.com on the Women’s Soccer home page.

Remembering Kobe: In lieu of a Lakers game, fans, Hall of Famers grieve at Staples Center

first_imgDwyane Wade talked about how Bryant called him during the 2009 playoffs, asking for advice on how to attack the Celtics’ defense. Reggie Miller talked about the grudging respect he felt for Bryant after he helped dismantle the Pacers in the 2000 Finals. O’Neal spoke to the loss he felt that he wouldn’t be able to speak to Bryant at Kobe’s Hall of Fame enshrinement, which is expected to be next fall. He said he hadn’t spoken to Bryant since his retirement game in 2016, when Bryant scored 60 points.“That’s the only thing I wish,” O’Neal said, “that I could speak to him again.”Jerry West, who famously maneuvered for Bryant after being floored by a workout, said he felt like “his father” when he was running the front office for the Lakers. Although West is now a Clippers consultant, he related a time when Bryant threatened to sign with the Clippers – and West (working for Memphis at the time) talked him out of it, telling him not to play for then-owner Donald Sterling. Even after West left the Lakers in August of 2000, he remained close to Bryant and continued to advise him.“I don’t know if I can get over this,” West said, cracking. “I really don’t.” PreviousLOS ANGELES, CA – JANUARY 28: Fans leave condolence message on boards to pay their respects to Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna, 13, at a memorial set up outside of Staples Center on January 28, 2020 in Los Angeles, California.

(Photo by Hans Gutknecht, Los Angeles Daily News/SCNG)ExpandLOS ANGELES — Where there was to be a basketball game, there were dim lights and Hall of Famers sitting in chairs, shedding tears.Where there was to be cheering, there were silent, empty rows of seats.Outside Staples Center was where Lakers fans gathered – not in joy, but in grief.There was only one Kobe Bryant, and mourning his death was a similarly singular affair on Tuesday evening, when the Lakers and Clippers had been previously scheduled to play. The game was postponed out of respect for the Lakers and the Bryant family. In the L.A. Live plaza, thousands of fans, some from as far away as China, roved through memorials of all kinds to the Black Mamba and his daughter, 13-year-old Gianna Bryant, who were among nine to die in a helicopter crash in Calabasas on Sunday morning. AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREUCLA alum Kenny Clark signs four-year contract extension with PackersThere were eight wall-sized paper murals, erected by the Staples Center staff, tattooed on both sides with personal inscriptions. Hundreds of candles glimmered along metal barriers as the sun set on downtown Los Angeles. There were layers of flowers, purple and golden blossoms, laid down among inscribed jerseys, hats and basketballs. Fans left stuffed animals, balloons, action figures, Kobe Bryant shoes both new and well-worn. People had drawn portraits of Kobe and Gianna, lovingly embracing, or simply printed out pictures and framed.The grief ran all the way onto the very ground the masses walked on, where messages to Kobe and GiGi were scrawled both in chalk and in ink: “R.I.P. KOBE” or “LEGENDS LIVE FOREVER” or “THANK YOU MAMBA” or “MISS YOU GIGI”. Arena officials opened adjacent Chick Hearn Court to pedestrian traffic to allow the placement of still more memorials.There were those who adopted a game-like atmosphere, chanting “KO-BE” or “M-V-P,” and cheering on fans who shot on an office hoop set up on one of the murals. Others sat on the ground or kneeled, uttering prayers or silently weeping.Most were caught somewhere in between, wandering the makeshift memorials with the readily identifiable haze of grief around them.Inside Staples Center, that grief was being put into words by people who knew Bryant well. For a TNT special broadcast from center court, former Lakers center Shaquille O’Neal had tears trailing down his cheeks as he spoke about his often fraught relationship with Bryant, who he first met when Kobe was 17 and told him in no uncertain terms that he was going to be the best basketball player ever and “bigger than Will Smith” off the court. Their three-peat dynasty fueled by the duo was eventually torn apart by their feud. But O’Neal said their names will be forever linked, and he believes that they constituted the “most dominant, big-little, one-two punch ever.“Got two strong-minded people that are gonna get it done that way,” he said. “You’re gonna say certain things. The respect will never be lost. But when it comes to being inside the lines and win, that’s what we did.”center_img That there was no game Tuesday spoke volumes about how the Lakers, and the NBA at large, felt about Bryant’s loss.There’s precedent for the NBA canceling games, but they are rarely associated with the death of one person. The league canceled games in 1992 during the Rodney King riots; in 1999 after the Columbine shooting; in 2013 after the Boston Marathon bombing. The last time the NBA is believed to have postponed a game for the death of an individual is in 2000, when Charlotte Hornets player Bobby Phills died in a car collision the day the Hornets were supposed to take on the Chicago Bulls.Both the Lakers and the Clippers had reservations about staging a game at Staples Center just two days after Bryant’s death, two people with knowledge of the situation said. Beyond the readiness of the players, there were also questions about the ability of the hundreds of team employees and arena staff members to be able to work through grief on a short timeline. Bryant was personable and well-known, even after his retirement, and his death left many in the organization devastated.That was felt at the highest levels: General Manager Rob Pelinka was Bryant’s agent for more than a decade before accepting a Lakers role in 2017 and remained close with him – Bryant himself said the two were frequent tennis partners. Team owner Jeanie Buss considered him a close friend and advisor, and The Athletic reported that Bryant was one of the figures who urged her to consolidate her power in the franchise when she fired her brother Jim and longtime GM Mitch Kupchak. ESPN was first to report Pelinka and Buss had gone to Orange County to be with Vanessa Bryant and her surviving children.Discussions about postponing the game continued through Monday as those in the Lakers organization gauged their emotions, with the team calling in grief counselors on Monday to address employees. In the end, the league and the teams agreed that postponing the game to a later date (which has yet to be decided) would be the best strategy for all parties.Instead of their typical game prep, which would have been a morning shootaround, the Lakers came to their El Segundo practice facility in Tuesday for a light workout and a team luncheon – more for the team to be together than for any functional practice work. The gathering lasted several hours.Outside of the practice facility were more shrines: A paper mural stretched nearly court-length, with Bryant’s face in the middle of each panel. Open bottles of wine and an open can of Modelo were left as offerings among more flowers and candles.The iron gates of the facility had left a door open for fans to venture in, and here they were more mournful and silent. Purple and gold balloons danced in the wind, and staffers gently picked up vases that had tumbled after particularly strong gusts.One of the few visitors who spoke was on a video call with a friend, showing the party on the other end of the line the shrine to Bryant and Gianna. She prefaced the display: “Just don’t cry, OK?”Whether you cried or not, you were in good company.Mirjam Swanson contributed to this story.

More Challenges As Another Group Opposes LNG Project

first_imgFORT. ST JOHN, B.C. – Those hoping for jobless, and overall economic relief for the hard-pressed oil and gas industry in this region as the result of the federal government approval next month of the 36-billion dollar Pacific NorthWest LNG project, are facing yet another opposition challenge. About 90 climate scientists from Canada, the U.S., Australia, and the UK are warning of dire environmental effects if the project, majority owned by Petronas, the Malaysian government owned Oil and Gas Company, and four other minority consortium partners, gets the green light from the Trudeau government.Some of the world’s leading experts on climate change are part of this group including NASA scientist James Hansen and Tim Flannery, the chief councillor of Australia’s Climate Commission. They have released an open letter claiming the project would be one of Canada’s largest point source greenhouse gas emitters. – Advertisement -They’re calling the draft environmental assessment for the project, superficial and incomplete, arguing it likely underestimated the amount of emissions that will be released.Doctor Danny Harvey, a senior Canadian climate scientist, and lead author with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change says:“Major uncertainties remain concerning greenhouse gas emissions from the fracking that would supply the natural gas, and concerning its full impact on emissions in the countries that would receive the natural gas.”Advertisement He goes on to say: “To proceed with a long term project without knowing the consequences would be reckless.”The federal government is set to make the final decision on the controversial proposal within the next 90 days, but Environment Minister Catherine McKenna has indicated it could come by the end of June.The LNG project would see a liquefaction and export facility built on Lelu Island on land administered by the Prince Rupert Port Authority, and Progress Energy, which like Pacific Northwest LNG is majority-owned by Petronas, would supply that facility with natural gas produced in Northeast BC and that’s why the project is viewed by many in this region as a panacea to the current economic downturn.
