A single goal might not sound unusual or special, but it was. The freshman scored to give Mayfield its first victory over Poly in 15 years. The win moved Mayfield up into a tie for second place, and in the hunt for a playoff spot.Mayfield Coach Calum Torrie: “Daria Young collected a pass and ended up the line toward the Poly goal. She cut inside and passed to Nadia. Nadia still had a bit to do, but she beat her defense, and then coolly slotted by the on-rushing goalkeeper from an acute angle, and from about 12 yards (out). The goal was huge for us this season, as it propelled us into a 4-way tie for second place. It was also a huge weight lifted after 15 years of ties, large defeats and close-fought losses. The messages coming in have been unbelievable. I have been there for all 15 years of the hurt.”Prep League Standings:Flintridge Prep (16-3-3 overall, 5-1-1 in league)Poly (13-4-3, 4-2)Westridge (10-3-1, 3-2-1)Mayfield (5-5-4, 2-2-1)Chadwick (2-8-1, 2-3-1)Firebaugh (1-10-2, 0-6)Remaining Schedule:1/31: Mayfield at Westridge at 3:152/1: Westridge at Mayfield at 7:302/3: Mayfield at Flintridge Prep at 62/7: Mayfield at Poly at 32/8: Mayfield at Firebaugh at 3:15center_img Community News Pasadena’s ‘626 Day’ Aims to Celebrate City, Boost Local Economy First Heatwave Expected Next Week Name (required)  Mail (required) (not be published)  Website  EVENTS & ENTERTAINMENT | FOOD & DRINK | THE ARTS | REAL ESTATE | HOME & GARDEN | WELLNESS | SOCIAL SCENE | GETAWAYS | PARENTS & KIDS faithfernandez More » ShareTweetShare on Google+Pin on PinterestSend with WhatsApp,Virtual Schools PasadenaHomes Solve Community/Gov/Pub SafetyPASADENA EVENTS & ACTIVITIES CALENDARClick here for Movie Showtimes Make a comment top box 9 Girls Athlete of the Week: Nadia O’Reilly of Mayfield Senior School Published on Sunday, January 29, 2017 | 12:26 am Home of the Week: Unique Pasadena Home Located on Madeline Drive, Pasadenalast_img read more

‘Idol’ voters give boot to one of season’s best

first_imgPaula Abdul echoed that sentiment, telling Edwards she should have “more fun” onstage. Dodging viewer elimination was Chris Richardson, who had the next-lowest vote tally. Richardson, 22, of Chesapeake, Va., had impressed judges with his smooth take on “Don’t Let the Sun Catch You Crying.” Cowell called it his “best performance so far,” while Abdul praised him as “charming and sexy.” Wednesday’s show also featured performances by this week’s guest coaches: Peter Noone, who fronted the 1960s British rock band Herman’s Hermits, and singer-songwriter Lulu. North Hollywood resident Brandon Rogers got the boot last week. In its sixth season, “American Idol” continues to dominate the ratings. It has attracted 26 million to 37million viewers per telecast this season. Is “American Idol” for real? In a surprise, Stephanie Edwards – one of this season’s best singers – was voted off the top-rated talent contest on Wednesday, while weak and sometimes unwatchable performers Sanjaya Malakar and Haley Scarnato were allowed to stay. The untimely departure of Edwards, 19, of Savannah, Ga., narrowed the number of “Idol” contestants to 10. The winner will be chosen in May. Simon Cowell said on Tuesday’s show that Edwards’ rendition of Dusty Springfield’s “You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me” lacked the edginess and youthful energy that she brought to her previous performances. last_img read more

REVENUE INVESTIGATE COMPANY WHICH SHAFTED DONEGAL WORKERS

first_imgANGER is growing in Donegal over a company which shafted more than one hundred workers – then cleared off without paying redundancy.We understand Revenue Commissioners have been asked to investigate why ticketing agents Keith Prowse has still not paid out to more than one hundred workers who lost their jobs in Lisfannon near Buncrana SIX MONTHS AGO!Last night one worker claimed: “We are still waiting to get our P45s, never mind redundancy payments. It is a crazy situation and no-one seems to give a damn.” Many call centre workers who have found new jobs are paying 50% tax on their new incomes because they haven’t been able to get their P45s.The law requires companies to give redundant employees the form.Buncrana Mayor Pádraig MacLochlainn said he disgusted at the attitude of the call centre organisation. “I am totally outraged that so many months have passed and these workers have still not received their P45s or their redundancy pay,” he told us. “This company appears to have cut ties with them completely and have walked away from their responsibilities.”He called on the Government to intervene on behalf of the workers.Keith Prowse in Dublin did not answer our queries last night.The organisation employed 50 full time and 50 part time workers in Inishowen before pulling the plug last August.It has moved into the Lisfannon premises in 2002 – thanks to millions of euro in grants from the IDA.
