Pardew instilling belief at Palace

first_img Press Association The Eagles were defeated 2-1 on Saturday by London rivals Arsenal but outplayed Arsene Wenger’s side for large periods of the game and came within inches of snatching a late draw when Glenn Murray’s stoppage-time header came back off the post. Pardew hailed the performance as the best he has seen since taking charge at Selhurst Park at the turn of the year and – with victories over Liverpool and Tottenham behind them – the former Newcastle boss insists his side can take on all comers if they have the self-confidence to do so. “The message in our dressing room was that we have to come out and play a more competitive game even against the top teams and be brave,” he said. “I was proud that they took it to Arsenal and we can lean on that. That’s one thing that we can take from the game, lean on the fact that we took the game to Arsenal, and in that framework we had individual players that can hurt teams. So we have got more here than we think we have, in my opinion. And I keep trying to stress that to the team. “We have that individual ability within the group, I genuinely believe. It was a hard call to get beat here today by this team. It’s just in the way you set up the team and the strategy and philosophy that you’re putting in front of them. “To go and take the game to Arsenal. We did that from the moment the game kicked off and the possession today doesn’t surprise me.” With the likes of Jason Puncheon, Wilfried Zaha and Yannick Bolasie, Palace have the pace and trickery to test the best defences in the league and Pardew felt he saw the first glimpses of the players feeling they can take it to the likes of Arsenal. “I think we should have a little more confidence in what we have in the dressing room, and I think that showed,” he added. “They believed it today for the first time since I’ve been here. We’ve won games because we’ve been resilient and we do have attacking flair on the break. “But we can also mix it and take it to the opposition and I was very proud of the team today that they believed they could do it, and they almost did achieve it. “We’ve still got lots to do. I’m pleased that they believe they can take a game to the likes of Arsenal because we’ve got some big clubs to come here still in Manchester United and Man City, and we can mix it with them and we’ve got to believe that. Of course the next three games are in and around that mid-table and we’ve got to exploit that situation.” center_img Alan Pardew is instilling a belief among his Crystal Palace squad that they are capable of beating any of the Premier League elite. last_img read more

Wellington loses to Wichita Collegiate 35-8, falls to .500

Despite some great defensive plays in the first half, Wichita Collegiate would win 35-8. (Eric Rinehart photo).by Tracy McCue, Sumner Newscow — The good news is, Wellington has probably completed its toughest two game stretch of the season. The bad news is Wellington has been outscored 81-8 in the past two ball games and went almost eight quarters without scoring.Wellington would lose to Wichita Collegiate 35-8 on homecoming night. The Crusaders, 3-3, will now embark on the most important part of the season when they battle Rose Hill next week to start district play.“They were the most physical team we’ve played this season,” said Tyler Ryan, Wellington head football coach. “But I’m not a moral victory kind of guy.”This effort was better than the week before, but Wellington’s propensity to give up the big play has been a problem.Offensively, Wellington could not sustain a drive.Wellington played a good first half, giving up just two touchdowns, one of them coming off a trick play. But for the second straight game, the Crusaders fell apart to start the third quarter.Before Wellington fans could settle into their seats, the special teams, who have been abysmal all season, opened the half with a fumble on what seemed to be a reverse. That turned a 13-0 lead into a 20-0 contest. After Wellington went three and out, Spartan Austin Waddell would scamper 56 yards for a touchdown and at the 9:43 mark of the third quarter, this game was pretty much over with Collegiate leading 28-0.Collegiate would score thereafter on a Waddell to Nathan Burgoyne 81-yard touchdown early in the fourth quarter.The Crusaders broke a seven-quarter scoreless streak when Logan Jones scored on a 1-yard plunge with six seconds in the game.Collegiate opened the game using chicanery when tailback Nathan Burgoyne threw a 48-yard touchdown pass to Cody McNerney.The Spartans would score on the next drive starting from the Wellington 31 and scoring thereafter on an 11-yard touchdown pass from Waddell to Cooper Root. If Wellington had one solace in this game, Collegiate never had a sustained drive. But giving up big plays are killing this team.Connor Phelps had 84 yards on 23 carries.For photo gallery of the football game of pictures by Eric Rinehart click here.

An entire story involving a private school without a single mention of the need to recruit players. You are maturing as a writer. Report Reply 0 replies · active 252 weeks ago +2 Vote up Vote down bob · 252 weeks ago that was the worst offensive play calling I’ve seen in a long, long, time. Report Reply 0 replies · active 252 weeks ago +4 Vote up Vote down CJ Carey · 252 weeks ago I understand what Coach Ryan is trying to do with the offense because apparently from what i have heard the team lacks speed. But to run this offense effectively your line needs to be extremely strong and get movement along the front. That is why a similar offense is effective in Conway Springs. Have we won games this year, yes but if we’re happy winning 3-4 games a year and only making the playoffs once in awhile then great stick with this. I am a product of Coach Hibbs so I lean towards the I formation. You dont have to have a lot of speed since you only have to have one person out wide, and you can run and pass effectively out of the formation . It seems like a happy medium between the spread they ran and the offense they have now. It allows you to have more inventive play calling when you are out matched physically. Obviously im washed out high school football player not a coach but it just seems like an obvious move. Regardless of wins i will continue to cheer on our team and wish them nothing but success.

Crusader football is not about being satisfied with 3-4 wins. There is a tradition here that is slowing dying because mediocrity is settling in. Report Reply 1 reply · active 252 weeks ago +1 Vote up Vote down Bill · 252 weeks ago From a surrounding towns perspective, the Wellington tradition left many many years ago. Hibbs saw the writing on the wall. Schmidt saw the writing on the wall. Ryan is trying to get the so called tradition going again along with the assistant coaches that were here during the Hibbs era. Report Reply +2 Vote up Vote down JACKIE FULLERTON · 252 weeks ago Bob….you hit that on the head. Tradition is going fast…Did anyone notice that the Collegiate football players standing on the sidelines cheering their players on? We could barely stand up with our cheerleaders and yell….Our players look very brow beat… Report Reply 0 replies · active 252 weeks ago Post a new comment Enter text right here!

Ministry looking for volunteers for wildlife count

first_imgPeace River residents are being encouraged by the Ministry of Natural Resource Operations to participate in the 4th Annual Public Winter Wildlife Count.The Ministry is hoping to persuade hunters, First Nations, agricultural producers, naturalists and families to participate in a one day event to help keep up-to-date and accurate wildlife records for the Peace River area.- Advertisement -The count first began several years ago after the Ministry received complaints from local farmers and ranchers about wildlife communities causing agricultural crop damage, says Conrad Thiessen, a wildlife biologist with the Ministry. Thiessen says the Ministry wanted to change hunting regulations for certain wildlife populations, but first had to collect information on specific species population densities.[asset|aid=3387|format=mp3player|formatter=asset_bonus|title=c17a8265ff15c3fa25059b2ac70d8976-Thiessen wildlife count 1_1_Pub.mp3] The wildlife count will take place on Jan. 15. The count is only being conducted over one day to help avoid double counting.Participants are asked to count mule deer, white-tailed deer, moose, elk, coyotes, wolves, foxes and sharp-tailed grouse. The Ministry is also asking people to write down if any animals appear sick so that those numbers can be recorded.Advertisement Thiessen says there are approximately 400 blocks making up the survey area and each group of people is given one block to survey throughout the day.He says the survey is a great way for residents to get involved in wildlife management and spend time with their families.The Ministry will also be awarding prizes to some residents that come out and participate.Anyone interested in getting involved with the wildlife count can contact the Ministry at 250-787-3411 and ask for Nick, Lori or Conrad.Advertisementlast_img read more
