Spotting her teammate, Daisy Granholm, 30 yards away, Weir put her right boot to the ball and sent it flying toward the middle of the 6-yard box.Had Weir’s kick been even 3-4 inches higher, it would’ve soared over Granholm’s head; had it been 6 inches lower, Ellsworth goalkeeper Kayla Duhaime would’ve gathered the ball with ease. Instead, it flew squarely onto Granholm’s forehead, producing a wide-open header to break open a game that seemed destined for a scoreless draw.Weir and Granholm’s connection with 3 minutes, 44 seconds left to play Thursday gave MDI a 1-0 win over Ellsworth at Del Luce Stadium. The goal stretched the Trojans’ winning streak to nine games with the regular season reaching the home stretch and playoff time approaching.Ellsworth and MDI players chase after the ball during the first half of a high school girls’ soccer game Oct. 10 at Del Luce Stadium.

It was two awesome players making an awesome play.”Ellsworth got the first major scoring opportunity when Sara Shea was fouled in the penalty area inside two minutes, but the game remained scoreless as Addi Laslie’s penalty kick went inches wide of the left post. Laslie made amends at the other end of the pitch moments later, though, as she snuffed out a promising MDI attack that nearly put Granholm in a one-on-one situation with the goalkeeper.Midway through the opening half, Duhaime was forced to leave the game temporarily after suffering a minor injury. Yet she returned after just five minutes to make a pair of key saves, and the Eagles (5-6) were able to withstand MDI’s remaining first-half scoring threats to keep the score level going into the break.MDI (10-1) forced Duhaime into another save in the opening minutes of the second, but the next 20 minutes belonged to Ellsworth as the home team controlled possession in the midfield and threatened offensively through junior Lexi Rossi. Yet the Trojans survived the Eagles’ barrage through solid goalkeeping from Sabine Costello-Sanders and were able to go back on the attack in the final 10-15 minutes.“We started winning more balls and started pushing forward,” Weir said of the Trojans’ resurgence late in the second half. “The time was starting to wind down, and we had to show how much we wanted it.”MDI put the ball in the back of the net with six minutes left to play, but the goal was nullified as the Trojans were called for a handball. Yet the visitors got another opportunity when an Ellsworth clearance behind the goal line set up the deciding corner kick, and neither Weir nor Granholm let that chance go to waste.MDI’s Rachel Leonard and Ellsworth’s Lexi Rossi battle for the ball during the second half of a high school girls’ soccer game Oct. 10 at Del Luce Stadium. The teams will meet again at 6 p.m. Oct 21 in Bar Harbor. ELLSWORTH AMERICAN PHOTO BY MIKE MANDELLThe game-winner marked the 35th goal of the year for Granholm and the 16th assist of the year for Weir. The two have formed one of Class B North’s deadliest attacking tandems this season with every one of Weir’s assists to date going to Granholm.“I love playing with Daisy,” Weir said. “She’s been such a difference maker for us this year. She’s a great player and a great captain for our team.”The 77th-minute goal marked the latest opening score for MDI all season. Ellsworth’s use of Laslie and Sawyer as part of a back three instead of as attackers gave the Eagles the speed needed to mark Granholm, who was nearly held scoreless for the first time this year.“Those girls are great soccer players,” Dow said. “They have a lot of speed, and with the knowledge of the game they have, they can play back there and do very well. They did a great job of marking Daisy.”The game was Senior Night for Ellsworth’s Silvana Diaz, Marissa Havey, Alicia Kelly, Audrey Ward and Emma Whitney. The 10th-place Eagles will play on the road against Maine Central Institute (6-5) at 1 p.m. Monday, Oct. 14.MDI will face No. 2 Hermon (10-0) on the road at 1:30 p.m. Monday. That game will have plenty on the line with the Trojans aiming to avenge their only loss thus far and Granholm needing just two goals to set the team’s single-season record, but the primary task, Dow said, is for MDI to play the Hawks tougher than it did Sept. 9.“When we played Hermon down [in Bar Harbor], we didn’t give them our best game,” Dow said. “We had a few moments in that one where we broke down, and they capitalized. Our girls are ready to step up this time and give them a battle.” Biolast_img read more

Wrong advice has cost marine sector millions – Pat the Cope

first_imgDeputy Pat the Cope Gallagher Fianna Fáil Marine spokesperson has welcomed the admission that the International Council for Exploration of the Sea (ICES ) advice has been inaccurate over the past number of years and in fact has overcut our National Quota or Total Allowable Catch for various fish species. He says this has cost our marine sector millions of Euro’s and our fishermen have been severely impacted by this dude or inaccurate advice which determined the value or size of our quotas over the past number of years.Pat the Cope added the accurate information which has come to light shows a major change in the perception of the stock. And it proves that the Marine sector were correct in their assessment – earlier this year when ICES advised a massive 68 % cut last year this based on false calculations of stocks.He said “The correct position is 4.16 million tonnes of a stock size as opposed to 2.35 million tonnes, as ICES had informed us last autumn. In actual fact they underestimated stocks by 50%, it is shocking that the advice on which Quotas were set and based was out by a margin of 50% or almost 2 million tonnes. It is not surprising then how we retain little confidence in how quotas are set annually.”He added last year and again earlier this year he stated that he had lost confidence in recent years in the mackerel advice provided by International Council for Exploration of the Sea (ICES) and that the inaccurate advice being put forward by them was costing the Irish Marine sector in terms of catch and onshore jobs.He said “The position is now confirmed whereby these sets of inaccurate advice given by ICES have cost the state millions of euro each year. “In November 2018, I stated that I believed their advice is not based on the accurate assessment of the stocks and too many errors have occurred over the last number of years. ICES advice each year was filled anomalies and inaccuracies, this was always contested by fishermen, as each year the fishermen were reporting increased stocks at sea but ICES were reporting decreases. It is now clear and beyond doubt that the fishermen were correct and the professional advice from ICES was completely wrong.“Last November I informed the Marine Minister that the ICES advice is totally contrary to the entire pelagic fishing industry observations on stocks of fish at sea, which even then were not consistent with ICES view or observations indicating huge decline in fishing stocks but instead the pelagic sectors evidence showed very large stock sizes at sea.“But, as we all are very well aware of now the ICES advice was accepted by the EU and cuts were made when in actual fact no cuts should of occurred.”He said he is now calling on the Minister for​ Agriculture, Food and the Marine and the EU Coastal states to revisit the recent decisions which were taken on the basis of ICES advice, and to without delay put in place an increased Quota and TAC for those states which were unfairly cut in those respective years.“The decisions to cut the TAC over the past number of years should not have been taken – they were based on a false premise and inaccurate information provided by ICES. It is clearly now a matter for Minister Creed to correct the wrongs of the past and appropriately compensate the Irish marine sector and the fish producers with increased catches in the years ahead. “There is sufficient basis now for a revised and increased quota for 2019, this must be immediately acted on and examined by the Irish Government in conjunction with our EU partners concluded Pat the Cope.Wrong advice has cost marine sector millions – Pat the Cope was last modified: April 5th, 2019 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalFishingPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more

Coincidentally, both ties ended in 1-0 scorelines on aggregate.At the UKM Mini Stadium, Bangi, Sulaiman Husin’s charges are set to become the second university side to enter the M-League, after they defeated Shahzan Muda 1-0 in their second leg semi-final match. UKM endured a jittery start to the match to retain the stalemate at the end of regulation time.With 10 minutes remaining in the extra-time, things looked bleak for the hosts when one of their players had to receive treatment off the pitch, while they had used up all three of their substitutions. But while the physio was frantically patching up the injured man, forward Faidzol Fazreen Shamsudin made sure Shahzan Muda did not get to take advantage of their extra man, scoring following a corner kick.
