Kootenay boys, Thomson, Freschi spark Ursel rink to BC Seniors Curling Championship

first_imgBut getting off to a 2-0 lead after the first end seemed to calm the rink, despite giving up a deuce to Craig in the second.“We came out strong right from the get-go, getting two in the first end,” Thomson said. “We played strong all week and we were really the team no one wanted to play because we were on fire.”Thomson said the entire rink, was on fire.“Bobby (Ursel) read the ice very well all week and (third) Dave Stephenson made everything this week. Satch (Don Freschi) and I played the front end, did some sweeping . . . it was a great week.”Ursel regained the lead in the third with another deuce before taking over the game with a single point steals in the fourth, fifth and sixth ends.“When we put this thing together, this is what we wanted to accomplish,” Thomson explained. “We felt pressure playing the final game because anything short of a provincial title would be a failure.“So winning it and beating the two-time defending champion was kind of a little icing on the cake.”After finishing in a four-way tie for second with Craig, Castlegar’s Myron Nichol, the Kootenay Rep at the Championships, came up short during the Page Playoff 3-4 game.Nichol and third Bill van Yzerloo of Castlegar, second Garry Beaudry of Nelson and lead Richard Faunt of Trail lost 8-6 to Craig Lepine of Langley.Leading 6-4 after six, Lepine scored a trio of points in the seventh before stealing a single in the eighth as Nichol searched for the tying single, or winning, deuce in the final end.Thomson said following a post-game celebrations, the Ursel rink will refocus on the next challenge ahead, representing BC at the Canadian Senior Men’s and Women’s Curling Championships March 28 to April 2 in Digby, N.S.Yup, once again time to adjust those sights. Bob Ursel and Company set their sights pretty high when Ursel, third Dave Stephenson, second Don Freschi and lead Fred Thomson joined forces back in October— win the BC Senior Men’s Curling Championship.The Okanagan/Kootenay rink successfully achieved that goal Sunday afternoon in Richmond, stopping two-time defending champion Wes Craig of Victoria 7-2 en route to the BC Senior Men’s Purple Heart.“The guys are very excited,” Thomson, from Nelson, told The Nelson Daily from Richmond.Ursel and Stephenson are from the Okanagan while Freschi is a Trail boy.“For me this is another Purple Heart . . . I now have Mens, a Mixed and a Senior’s title,” Thomson said.“I’m so thrilled and blessed,” Thomson added. “I’m so thankful for our supporters . . . people from Nelson sending us good wishes through the week.“This is just overwhelming . . . it was very emotional for us all.”Thomson admitted the rink was a bit nervous entering Sunday’s final. After dominating the rest of the teams throughout the week — finishing on top of round robin standings with a 6-1 record and hammering Craig 8-1 Friday in the Page Playoff 1-2 contest — the pressure was on the Ursel rink to bring home the Purple Heart.last_img read more

first_imgAston Villa boss Dean Smith says Wesley will come goodby Paul Vegas22 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveAston Villa boss Dean Smith has backed new striker Wesley to be a success at Villa Park.Wesley had a disappointing performance against Burnley last week.“His performance wasn’t great on Saturday against Burnley and he was the first to admit that to me afterwards as well when I went through his clips with him,” Smith said.“But what I’ve seen in training this week has been a reaction, he’s trained very well this week and he’ll be the first to go out there and try to prove people wrong.“It’s a tough job as a lone striker and he was up against two street-wise centre-backs in James Tarkowksi and Ben Mee, both very strong and street-wise centre-halves who can give a lot of centre forwards problems in this league.“I think that they got the upper hand on [Wesley] early on in the game and he showed his frustrations a little bit during the game, but he’ll learn from that. “He’s a young striker, still only 22 and he’ll get better and better.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Oil industry to return to profitability this year after three years of

first_imgCALGARY, A.B. – Canada’s oil industry is expected to be back in the black this year thanks to higher oil prices and more production after registering three years of losses.But the Conference Board of Canada says the recovery will be modest and ongoing pipeline capacity problems will likely continue to result in Western Canada’s oil production selling for discount prices.Michael Burt, director of industrial economic trends, says the oil industry will register pre-tax profits of about $1.4 billion this year after a string of losses since prices crashed in 2014. He says the profits are partly the result of efficiencies in the use of labour that are expected to continue to limit hiring. The industry is expected to create just 2,150 new jobs over the next five years.Total crude production in Canada is forecast to rise by an average annual rate of 3.4 percent between 2018 and 2022, with most of it coming from the Alberta oilsands.Industry revenues are forecast to increase by about eight percent in 2018.“We’re talking about a shift back to being in the black for industry but margins are still quite thin,” Burt said.“So it’s obviously good news but for the industry it’s not a level of profitability that they would like to see to earn a sufficient return on their capital.”(THE CANADIAN PRESS)last_img read more
