All told, the city has recorded 10,261 cases of the virus and 256 deaths.The three new deaths all involved men living among the community at large, as opposed to in long-term care facilities, city spokeswoman Lisa Derderian said.Two of the men were in their 30s, with one suffering from a severe underlying health problem, she said. The third new victim was 64 years old.Pasadena’s average daily infections over the prior week reached 62.3, which was the lowest rate recorded since Dec. 4.Officials at Huntington Hospital reported treating 148 COVID-19 patients, with 23 of them being cared for in intensive care units.Los Angeles County Director of Public Health Barbara Ferrer reported daily deaths are down about 33% from early January, but she called that a small decline compared to the 1,400% surge in daily deaths in December into January.“This is a tragedy that we’ve yet to turn around,” she said.The county on Monday reported another 85 deaths, lifting the cumulative death toll to 16,854.Another 4,223 cases were also announced, giving the county a total from throughout the pandemic to 1,120,895.Case and death reports are typically low on Mondays due to lags in reporting from the weekend.According to state figures, there were 5,259 people hospitalized in the county as of Monday, including 1,415 in intensive care. The overall number is well below the daily average of more than 8,000 patients in early January.Dr. Christina Ghaly, director of county Health Services, said emergency hospitals in the county reported a total of 816 available beds Monday morning, including 87 ICU beds.But while the numbers are trending in the right direction, health officials urged residents to continue adhering to infection-control measures, particularly with more businesses reopened, such as outdoor restaurants.“It is not time to relax. It is … time to remain super-vigilant against this deadly virus and continue to stay home as much as possible,” Ferrer said. “It is only by the actions that each business and each individual in L.A. County takes that we’re going to see this continued reduction intransmission.”Ferrer also repeated a message that will be heard often throughout the week — urging people to avoid gatherings for Sunday’s Super Bowl.“We do know that the surge was driven in part by gatherings with those not in your household,” Ferrer said. “This is why we’re asking that during this time of continued high rates of community transmission, and the appearance of more infectious variants, please stay home on Super Bowl Sunday.“This year, no one should create any additional risk that will come by hosting or attending a party with people outside their immediate household,” Ferrer said. “This Sunday, play it safe and enjoy the game at home with those who live in your household.”At the state level, public health officials reported 15,358 new infections and 211 deaths on Monday, bringing the statewide totals to 3,258,706 cases of COVID-19 and 40,908 fatalities.The state’s average positivity rate over the prior week fell to 6.5%, while the 14-day rate was recorded at 7.3%, according to the California Department of Public Health.As of Monday, L.A. County represented 34% of California’s total COVID-19 infections and 41% of the state’s deaths.last_img read more

IHOC : Syracuse prepares for physical McGill team in exhibition match

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Paul Flanagan likes to talk about how his team is more unified this season than it has been in the past, but that doesn’t mean there isn’t some competition in Syracuse practices.‘There’s always an American-Canadian rivalry,’ SU goaltender Kallie Billadeau said.‘As an American,’ she joked, ‘we don’t like (them).’When the Orange (5-7, 0-0 College Hockey America) takes on McGill (4-1, 2-1 Quebec Student Sports Federation) in an exhibition game Friday at Tennity Ice Pavilion, it will be taking the rivalry from the practice rink into a real-game situation. The Martlets are regularly one of the top teams in Canada and are currently the top-ranked team in the Canadian Interuniversity Sport (CIS). Syracuse is facing McGill for the first time since 2009, which was the Orange’s inaugural season.SU is no stranger to elite teams this season, having played and lost to third-ranked Minnesota 4-0 in the season’s opening weekend and getting clobbered 9-2 by No. 2 Cornell on Tuesday.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text‘It’s tough to play teams like this, but it’s a good thing,’ Billadeau said. ‘It shows where you are as a team and where you want to be.’Despite the Martlets’ Canadian origin, Syracuse doesn’t expect McGill to provide any more unique of a challenge than the other elite teams SU has faced this season. Syracuse has 10 players on its roster from Canada, but Canadians don’t play with any different schemes or strategies than the Americans.Even with the Martlets’ talent, the Orange still plans to treat the game as an exhibition. Though SU obviously hopes to win the game, Flanagan expects to get some players in the lineup who haven’t played as much this seasonFor Syracuse to successfully rebound from a loss to the Big Red and defeat McGill, the first priority is finding some way to beat McGill goaltender Charline Labonte.Another potential issue for the Orange is McGill’s physicality. Though Syracuse has 10 Canadian players, McGill, located in Montreal, is entirely Canadian. Billadeau expects the Canadians’ physical style of play to be notable on the ice Friday.‘I don’t know (many differences), but they’re physical,’ she said.Most importantly, though, is learning from the Cornell game. The blowout Syracuse suffered to the Big Red is a valuable learning experience for the Orange, and SU will make adjustments based on the game against McGill.‘You just take it game by game, period by period, even,’ SU forward Jessica Sorensen said. ‘You break it down even smaller, and that’s when good things happen.’Friday’s game against the Martlets will usher in a nearly two-week layoff that is much needed for the Orange after a brutal loss to Cornell and the challenge of this Canadian powerhouse.The time off will allow the Orange to overcome a few injuries that have hampered the team. SU forward Lisa Mullan hasn’t played since the opening weekend, and she can benefit from two straight weeks of treatment.But first come the Martlets. Though Syracuse’s final real game before a layoff didn’t go the way the Orange had hoped, the fight it showed when it finally got in the scoring column down 4-0 will have to carry over onto the ice Friday against McGill.‘It doesn’t count for any statistics other than just a chance to play,’ Flanagan said. ‘We can get everybody in. It’s an exhibition game, so we’ll have everybody dress and try to play everybody, and some of the kids that don’t play much are really going to get a chance to play a little bit more.’[email protected]center_img Published on November 2, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact David: [email protected] | @DBWilson2last_img read more

Who is David Ayres? Everything you need to know about the EBUG that helped beat the Maple Leafs

first_img42 years is a long time to wait to make your NHL debut, but for David Ayres, it was better late than never. Serving as the emergency backup goalie in Saturday night’s game between Carolina and Toronto, Ayres was called upon by the Hurricanes after both of their main goaltenders were injured. James Reimer started the game in net for Carolina but left early in the first period after a collision with teammate Jaccob Slavin. His replacement, Petr Mrazek, was injured after getting barrelled over by Toronto’s Kyle Clifford.  Petr Mrazek to the locker room after being taken out by Kyle Clifford— Brady Trettenero (@BradyTrett) February 23, 2020With no other goalies on their bench, the Hurricanes had no choice but to turn to Ayres.A native of Whitby, Ont., Ayres spent most of his career bouncing around the minor leagues before a serious health issue interrupted his playing career. He underwent a kidney transplant in 2004, but the procedure was successful and he made a full recovery. He has been in and around the Maple Leafs organization for eight years now. It started when he began working at Ricoh Coliseum (now Coca-Cola Coliseum), home of the AHL’s Toronto Marlies, where he’s an arena maintenance worker and occasional Zamboni driver. After injuries struck several of the Marlies’ netminders a few years back, he got a chance to show off his skills. “A couple of guys were hurt, I ended up bringing my gear in and they said ‘hey, you’re pretty decent,” Ayres told the Toronto Sun in January. His job is primarily to fill in during practice whenever the Marlies or Maple Leafs needed an extra body. For the past three years, he’s also served as the Maple Leafs’ emergency backup, waiting in the wings of Scotiabank Arena just in case his services were ever required. On Saturday night, they finally were.When Mrazek went down midway through the second period, Ayres quickly got ready. Before he stepped on the ice, he had to sign a one-game contract with the NHL. His payment? $500. Oh, and he would get to keep his game-worn jersey. This is the contract David Ayres would have signed because he had no prior pro experience. NHL teams aren’t permitted to use former pros as emergency backups.— Chris Johnston (@reporterchris) February 23, 2020He emerged from the tunnel wearing a Toronto Marlies goalie mask and blue pants — in contrast to his red Hurricanes uniform — and strode onto the rink where his new teammates greeted him. Carolina was winning 3-1 with almost 30 minutes of hockey left to be played. The honeymoon didn’t last long either. Ayres let in goals on the first two shots he faced, although in fairness there wasn’t much he could do for either of them. It wasn’t an ideal start, but the Canes made it to the end of the period up 4-3, and from there Ayres settled down. He kept the Leafs off the scoreboard in the third, making a few great saves in the process. We believe in Dave— Carolina Hurricanes (@Canes) February 23, 2020When all was said and done, his first and last game with the Carolina Hurricanes ended in a comfortable 6-3 win. He was named first star of the game. Tomorrow he’ll be back in practice with the Maple Leafs, the very team he helped defeat. “I’m probably going to get ripped pretty hard after today,” he told Fox Sports Carolinas after the game. “I guess I can take the game puck with me and show it to them.”It’s almost certainly the only time we’ll ever see David Ayres in an NHL game, but for one unforgettable night, with the entire league watching, he owned the spotlight.last_img read more

Schmidt’s fightback sets up title shoot-out

first_img Teenager Ben Schmidt pulled off a great comeback today to give Yorkshire their second win at the English Men’s County Championship and set up a title shoot-out with Gloucestershire.Schmidt’s hard-fought point gave the Northerners a 5-4 win over BB&O (Berks, Bucks & Oxon) at Aldeburgh Golf Club, Suffolk. Gloucestershire, meanwhile, defeated Lincolnshire 6-3, also for their second match win of the tournament.The results mean that tomorrow’s head-to-head between the two teams will decide the outcome of the trophy. Victory would give Yorkshire their 22nd win, while Gloucestershire would claim both their third win – and a notable double, after the county’s women won their championship a couple of weeks ago.Both teams made their first move in the foursomes, each claiming two of the three points on offer. Before long, though, drama was unfolding in the singles.Yorkshire started the afternoon in style, with international David Hague playing nicely under par to defeat England team-mate David Langley by 3/2. Bailey Gill, yet another England player, added his point to Yorkshire’s tally on the 17th and took them to within touching distance of the win. But the team had to withstand a determined BB&O onslaught before they could get over the line.First Tim Shin came back from 2 down after 12 to win on the last green, after a low scoring game in which the players notched up seven birdies between them. Then boy international Harrison Arnold broke through in a close match to win 3/1 – and the two counties were level-pegging with four game points apiece.In the final game, Yorkshire’s Schmidt, trailed Adam Birdseye over the opening holes and was three down after nine. “I lost both my matches yesterday and I went into the back nine thinking ‘I really don’t want to lose another one’,” said Schmidt, who is the English Boys’ County Champion of Champions.So the 16-year-old blocked out the pressure, clawed his way back and was 1up after 15 – only to put his second shot on 16 in the gorse. Back to all square.A text book par on 17 was good enough to put him back in the lead, but he gave himself one more test before claiming his point. His long approach putt on 18 went 6ft past the hole and left him a nerve-tingling downhill, breaking putt – but he slotted it straight in for the win, to cheers from his team supporters. “It was nice to make that,” he said. “I’ve really enjoyed today.”Yorkshire captain Darryl Berry remarked: “He (Schmidt) was out to prove a point, he wanted his point and I knew he would dig in for us.“It’s been a tough day, but we got the win and now it’s a shoot-out tomorrow – and it will be a good one.”Gloucestershire captain Gary Ward echoed that after his team found their stride and then powered to their win.Mitch Waite, yet another England player, led the way in the singles and was four-under when he won on the 16th. Joe Harvey followed up with another 3/2 win before Jake Phillips holed a 25-footer on 16 to both win his point and claim the match for Gloucestershire.“It’s unreal, I’m dead chuffed,” said Phillips, who had been in a fairway bunker on the hole but who saved par with his great putt. “This is my Ryder Cup, this is as good as it gets for me and it’s fantastic.”Gloucestershire’s team total rose with two halved games, thanks to Nick Day and Haider Hussain, who holed a 40ft putt on the last.“They were outstanding today and now it’s all to play for tomorrow,” said Ward. “It was nip and tuck to start with, we didn’t pick up the pace for the first seven or eight holes and Lincolnshire have some cracking players, but then they were fantastic.“Tomorrow we’ve got two great teams who have both performed well all week. Both teams have got the players and it will all be on the day.” 29 Sep 2018 Schmidt’s fightback sets up title shoot-out Tags: Aldeburgh Golf Club, BB&O, County Finals, Gloucestershire, Lincolnshire, Men’s Golf, Yorkshirelast_img read more

Chopin, Clan knocked out in NCAA Championship semi final

first_imgJovan Blaglo had given SFU a 1-0 lead.But three second half goals by Carson Newman sealed the deal.Juan Sanchez scored the other goal for SFU.”It’s a game of opportunities and a game of mistakes and I didn’t think we took the opportunity tonight,” Koch explained.”They are a great team and they deserve to be in the final. They didn’t take us by surprise at all because when you get to the Final Four, every team is a good team. They were a good team. They deserve to be in the final. They were better than us tonight. I think we need to give ourselves a bit of a head shake because this is the second year in a row we have come to the Final Four and been out-worked and there is no excuse for that.”Chopin, a grad of the Nelson Youth Soccer, got into the game for 16 minutes as a substitute. The six-foot sophomore finished the game with no shots. The loss ends the Clan season after SFU captured their second consecutive conference NCAA West Region Championship and fourth straight Great Northwest Athletic Conference crown. The wonderful season for Kaslo’s Jules Chopin and the Simon Fraser Unversity Clan went out in Georgia as Carson Newman Eagles scored a 3-2 victory in the semi-final match at the NCAA Championship Tournament in Evans, Georgia.It was the second consecutive season SFU has lost in the NCAA Championship tournament semi final. “We weren’t good enough,” Clan head coach Alan Koch said on the SFU website.”At halftime I told them that the game wasn’t over and that you have to play the full 90 minutes to win the game. We took our foot off the pedal after we scored. We had ample opportunity once we went up one nothing and could have gone up two, three, four nothing and the game would have been over at that stage, however we didn’t and that is the sport that we play. We allowed them back in it, they out worked us tonight, so I take my hat off to them for that.” The game was tied 2-2 in the dying minutes of the game, with overtime looming, when Carson Newman scored to make it 3-2 with just over a minute remaining as Joao Pedro Dowsley took a through ball and beat Clan keeper, Brandon Watson of Victoria, with a shot off his left footlast_img read more
