first_imgAt that point of the game, Nelson carried the play, out shooting Aldergrove by an 11-2 margin.But the Kodiaks found the equalizer less than a minute later.A Leaf turnover at center ice sprung two Kodiak players in on the Leaf defence allowing Stephen Ryan to deposit the puck past a surprised Brad Rebagliati in the Nelson nets.Nelson, a team averaging 4.75 goals per game during the regular season, pressed for the go-ahead goal.But the score remained tied for the next 49 minutes.Needing the win, Leaf coach Frank Maida pulled Rebagliati in favour of an extra attacker to try to find the winning goal.But after applying pressure in the Aldergrove end of the ice the puck squirted outside the Kodiak bluleline with Aaron Martin jumping on a loose biscut before drilling a wrist shot into the empty Nelson net.“This is heartbreaking,” said Rebagliati from outside a very somber Leaf dressing room.“We needed that win. We wanted to be in the final against BV . . . we came here to win the Cyclone. We’re the host team and it would have been great to win it in front of our home fans but we’re all pretty devastated right now.”The Leafs now meet Victoria Cougars at 10 a.m.Rebagliati realizes it’s going to be tough for the Leafs to get ready to meet the Cougars after failing to achieve their goal of the Cyclone Cup.“It’s definitely going to be tough,” Rebagliati admitted. “You want to be playing in that second game . . .. Having to wake up early after a disappointing loss like this is definitely tough but it’s something we’re going to have to do.”CYCLONE NOTES: To no one’s surprise, Jordan Liem was named MVP for Aldergrove in the contest.

I didn’t even mention (tie) to the players before the game,” said Kodiak skipper Brad Rihela when asked about playing for the single point.“We’re trying to gain as much momentum as we can after losing the opener and it’s always a focus for out club to try to get the two points.”Aldergrove entered the contest tied for second spot in tournament standings with Victoria Cougars — each with two points.Nelson was fourth with a single point, but could advance into the final against Beaver Valley Nitehawks.However, Nelson needed to win the game to leapfrog over both Aldergrove and Victoria.The Leafs got the start they wanted when Aaron Dunlap put the puck past Liem from close range midway through the first period.last_img read more

And of the three we lost we did it on penalties. It leaves me that from November the team began to grow and we continue on that line. LaLiga is back a totally different tournament. “Valverde. “I am nobody to comment on what is happening to another family inside his house. Valverde is a great coach, he leaves his team first and qualified for the Champions League. That is what I see.

first_imgAguirre is not a man of whispers. Unlike. Speak loudly and, of course, of course. Cristialino “In the first part the game is thrown. Exactly so. If I say it here it is because I also told the boys inside. We give away the first part in a childlike way. It does not seem that we fight for the descent. (… ) When a team gives 45 minutes in First division, most likely you will lose. A team that plays to follow in First cannot give away, no longer 45 minutes … but only two minutes.

LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of February 10, 2020 The worst in the epiloguesYes, lately the Leganés suffers in the beginning, but it turns out that its true pending subject is the one that points to the final stretch of the matches. To the epilogues. Until the dispute of this last day, the Blue and Whites were the team that has lost the most points in the last 30 minutes of their matches: Eight points stopped winning due to so many rivals from 60 to 90 minutes.Statistics are provided by the specialized site @StatsPrimera, which points out that, in a fictitious classification of matches at 60 minutes, Leganés would be 11th with 26 points. A guarismo that would grow if the matches were only played until the break. If so, Leganés would be 10th with 28 points. It is there, after the resumption, when most suffered a Leganés who has seen how he conceded 20 goals in the second parts of their matches for only eight scored.The mixture of both factors (lazy beginnings, bad endings) explains to some extent the irregularity of a Leganés who, when competing, generates expectations that dissolve at the ends of his matches. It is difficult for pickers to start and finish their matches. Enjoying a competitive routine for 90 minutes is another of the pending tasks from here to the end of the course.center_img The Leganés lost last Saturday to Levente fruit of two too early gorings. Rochina (20 ‘) struck at the start. Roger, shortly after (28 ‘). The first two prickly pimples ended in deadly cucumber injury: 2-0 home. It is not the first time it happens. Before him Getafe The stir was more serious because it happened at home and finished with three goals against it in 31 minutes.

first_imgLow Perea and Malbasic. “It makes me rethink the 4-2-3-1 system when I don’t see the team well to make any changes. The losses can be solved with other players. We have to be strong, neither skilled, nor precious, nor exceptional from there. everything else comes out. I’m going to work on that, that the team is strong, that on the contrary it costs him to reach the goal or handle the ball. “Jury. “He could be a starter, it is something to value, there are still two days left for the game and we will think about it. The other day he left on the left, but the game was very stuck and we put it inside, but he in this team where he can best perform it is on the left. When it has been available we have always used it, but it had two injuries in two moments that came out and has never caught pace. Now it seems that training has a good rhythm, the quality has it. “ Short week. “I would have liked a week longer because after a defeat you have things to improve and correct. After the other day we have things to talk about. You have fewer days and hardly any recovery time with the trip as well.”Sporting “The change of coach at the beginning did not have the effect they expected, but now the team is different. He plays very well with the ball, he has quite clear ideas of what they do with him and they have a very good result that they achieved in Santander the other day. Sporting, good or bad, in Molinón is dangerous, but now they are well. “Plan to stop the rival. “The plan is that they do not play comfortable, keep them away from our goal and take advantage of our moments that when we do that always appear.”Cádiz is stuck. “There comes a time of the season in which teams that have left more points on the road go more to the concrete, which is what we did at the beginning of the season and we are very well known, they know what our strengths are and We are played by taking advantage of that and we are made to change the way we play a team that does not have several records with the same chances of winning. We have a way of playing that gives us many possibilities and we are very safe and in others not so much When the team runs more with the ball it is a team that does not win and when it runs more without the ball it is a team that normally wins. That is what the teams know. Apart from that, we have to be an intense team. “Intensity. “For me, intensity means the number of stolen balls, which you lose to the opponent. Plays that are not seen in a match but that we handle because we have lived them and we have them. Sometimes the intensity is given by the game of the opponent , Zaragoza handled the ball a lot, there you can put the intensity into practice. “ Template state. “We have been with the entire squad for a while, with some players touched but who can train. That’s good, it is a handicap when making a list because many players stay at home and others without playing, but it is good to have it to choose “.System change “Since the arrival of Malbasic and Álvaro Giménez we have always had in mind that we have to try and be able to play like that. We did it in Las Palmas and we won, we did it the other day against Málaga and we didn’t win. The team suffers. at the time of not having the ball but we are supposed to have more stuck. For the moment we are not getting it, but that is not why we will stop trying. “Competition considers Mesa yellow fairIndignation in the cadism by the decision of the Competition Committee. The resolution gives the reason to Pulido Santana and does not rectify the yellow card that Nano Mesa saw in the match of day 28 against Málaga. The Yellow Submarine yesterday presented allegations, now dismissed, to try to free the Tenerife striker from the warning that the referee deemed necessary to pretend foul within the area and that the club considers unfair.The referee stated in the minutes that the reason for the yellow card was “to pretend to have been infringed” in an action between Diego González and Nano Mesa. Pulido Santana did not appreciate the fault and his assistant in the VAR, Ávalos Barrera, did not consider it necessary to review the images. This decision generated a controversy that has given much to talk in recent days after viralizing the images of the play through social networks.Now, the Competition Committee, after reviewing the images, considers that the decision of the collegiate was correct, and collects “the images provided undoubtedly prove the version of the facts that the club maintains: that the Málaga defender contacts his right foot with the player finally admonished causing his demolition. Therefore, this Competition Committee cannot substitute for the referee’s assessment, concluding that there has been a manifest material error. ”The yellow card is not a penalty for being the second of the striker, who once again stepped on the green after spending two days recovering from a sprained ankle he suffered in the match against Racing.Those who will miss the next game against Sporting when serving the federal penalty for seeing the fifth yellow last day are Filip Malbasic and Alberto Perea.
