first_imgThere was a bit of a change to the Nelson Leafs during a three-game Thanksgiving homestand.The team decided to show their respect to Breast Cancer Awareness Month by adding a touch of pink to the Green and White home jerseys.”It was an idea from the players,” said Leaf head coach Frank Maida. “A couple of players took it upon themselves to go a little pink and the executive was happy with the idea.” Nelson players pink shoelaces in their skates and jerseys while the goalies wore pink on the masks and pads.Traditionally football players north and south of the 49th parallel wear pink shoes or tape their pads with pink tape to show support for breast cancer charitie.Breast Cancer Awareness month is an annual international health campaign organized by major breast cancer charities every October to increase awareness of the disease and to raise funds for research into its cause, prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure.The campaign also offers information and support to those affected by breast cancer.Maida said the team plans to continue wearing pink throughout the month of October.last_img read more

first_img–30– ARCADIA, Calif. (April 9, 2015)–Favored Avenge rallied from just off the pace under Flavien Prat to register a convincing 1 ½ length win in Thursday’s $58,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita as the 3-year-old daughter of War Front negotiated 6 ½ furlongs down the track’s hillside turf course in 1:13.90. Trained by Richard Mandella and owned by Ramona Bass, LLC, she won for the second consecutive time down the hill, but her trainer is convinced she’ll do well on dirt as well.“She does like the turf but I don’t know that she can’t run on dirt,” said Mandella. “I don’t think the dirt was the reason she didn’t run well before because she didn’t run any better on the hill her first time. She’s a good filly and I just need to cultivate her a little bit.”Off at 9-5 in a field of eight fillies and mares, Avenge took command at the sixteenth pole and paid $5.60, $3.40 and $2.60. Following her maiden score down the hillside on March 15, Avenge now has two wins from three starts over the unique layout and is two for five overall. With the winner’s share of $34,800, her earnings stand at $79,600.“She was great behind the speed today,” said Prat. “She was a little bit green when she was up front last time, she was real keen. I had a lot of horse and a lot of confidence once we crossed the dirt (at the top of the stretch). I’m grateful to be riding her.”Ridden by Victor Espinoza, Sea Mona sat second throughout behind fractions of 21.64, 44.07 and 1:07.74, and when pacesetter Windy Forecast folded a sixteenth out, the winner went by on her outside. Off at 7-2, Sea Mona paid $4.00 and $3.00.Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Whisk rallied to out finish Desert Steel for the show, finishing three quarters of a length behind Sea Mona. The second choice at 3-1, Whisk paid $2.40 to show.First post time on Friday at Santa Anita is at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m. The $75,000 Santa Lucia Stakes for older fillies and mares will serve as the day’s headliner and has been carded as the sixth race on an eight race card. Two time Eclipse Award winner Beholder will make her 5-year-old debut in the Santa Lucia and is the heavy 1-5 morning line favorite.last_img read more

first_img23 July 2013After securing an impressive 153-run win over Sri Lanka in the first test in Galle, the Proteas have shifted their focus to the second and final test, which starts in Colombo on Thursday.There is plenty at stake and plenty of motivation for Hashim Amla and company to win the series, beginning with the fact that they would again take over as the world’s number one ranked test team should they secure a 2-0 series victory.Previous series in Sri LankaThe Proteas will also be seeking only their second series win in Sri Lanka. They previously won a three-match series 1-0 in 1993.In 2000, they shared a 1-1 draw in the three-test series, with the South African win coming by the narrow margin of one wicket.In 2000, the Sri Lankans scored an emphatic 2-0 series victory in two tests. Most recently, in 2006, they won 2-0 again, edging the Proteas by one wicket in the second test in Colombo.HungrySouth Africa’s vice-captain AB de Villiers said the squad is hungry and committed to finishing the tour off with a win, and will not back off despite the fact that the series can’t be lost.“It was great to have had a day off yesterday just to reflect and celebrate an amazing and special win,” he said after training on Tuesday. “In saying that, it’s not rocket science, there is a huge test coming up.“We would love to win the series 2-0, winning both the ODIs and tests would be special for us as a team.“It will be important for us to lay the foundation again on Thursday, like we did in the first test in Galle,” he said.“I thought we started really well and it gave us the freedom to express our talent over the five days.”VenueThe last three matches at the Sinhalese Sports Club (SSC) have been high-scoring draws, but De Villiers is hopeful the Proteas will make the most of the conditions on hand.“The general feeling in Sri Lanka is to bat first,” he said. “In the past there has been a little bit of juice in the wicket in the first session. You have to make it work for you if you lose the toss and bowl first.“From Sri Lanka’s point of view, they would like to get a result from this match and so do we. I think both teams will play positive cricket. That is what everyone wants.”Unwanted part of historyDe Villiers, Hashim Amla and Dale Steyn were an unwanted part of history when the Proteas’ were beaten by an innings and 153 runs in 2006 in a match which featured a world-record 624 run partnership between Kumar Sangakkara (285) and Mahela Jayawardene (309).This time around, the Proteas find themselves in a more favourable position heading into the match, and have shown they are equipped to deal with the challenges of playing on the sub-continent.‘A natural leader’A series win would be the perfect start for new captain Hashim Amla. “He has always been a natural leader,” De Villiers said of Amla. “He had a great start, I think he is going to have an amazing career as captain.“He has all the credentials, everything that you need to be a good leader. The whole team is right behind him.”SAinfo reporterlast_img read more
