Edwards’ 51 saves backstops Huskies to 5-2 win over Sexsmith

first_img“Defence was great tonight. All of the shots were pretty much from outside the house. It wasn’t much work, just tracking the puck. When you get a lot of shots it goes good. You can stay warm in the game and your head is in it,” He said.Scoring for the Huskies were Cayle Bell (3), Jacob Lang, and Shawn Wilson.Final shots were 53-33 for Sexsmith.The Huskies next game is scheduled for Wednesday in Dawson Creek against the Junior Canucks. Despite being down four regulars last night against one of the NWJHL’s top offenses, the Fort St. John Huskies got the job done against the Sexsmith Vipers. Cayle Bell scored a hat trick, and Logan Edwards had what was easily his best game between the pipes as he made 51 saves on the way to a 5-2 win.The Huskies had a 1-0 lead after the first period and had eventually built themselves a 3-0 lead in the second despite being heavily outshot. The Vipers closed the gap to two and seemed to be taking over momentum in the game but a late goal in the period by Fort St. John seized it back.The clubs exchanged goals in the third to conclude the scoring.- Advertisement -Assistant coach Todd Alexander was thrilled with the work of his goaltender saying the time and energy being put in is starting to pay off.“Edwards had his best game of the year tonight. He played awesome. He was under control, he was athletic, and his rebounds were money tonight. He’s been working hard and he deserved a game like that tonight,” he said.With a number of players out of the lineup including Kody Disher and Jordan Harder the offence needed to step up and they answered the bell with their offensive output.Advertisement “We know we can score goals. That’s not our problem around here. We showed that tonight. Those weren’t soft goals that were scored tonight. Those were good goals that were buried by our guys. It’s nice to see especially when we’ve got four regulars out of the lineup,” Alexander said.Leading the way offensively was Cayle Bell with three goals as he also earned props from the Huskies assistant coach.“When the pressure is on and we’re playing good teams he always seems to step up to the next level of play and again he came with his A game. When he’s going it’s a big lift for the team. He’s our top shooter and that kid can score,” Alexander said.In goal the 51 saves for Logan Edwards was a season high, but despite the heavy workload he said the defence in front of him did a good job making sure the shots came from low percentage areas.Advertisementlast_img read more

DONEGAL’S SIX STAR HOTEL PLAN PUT ON ICE AS COMPANY BATTLES TO SURVIVE

first_imgA property developer’s wife, who had plans to turn a 34 acre site into Donegal’s first six star hotel and marina, is trying to avoid being made bankrupt.Emma McElroy is arguing that she she signed loan guarantees without reading them and without getting independent legal advice.Mervyn and Emma McElroy were the directors of Lough Shore Development in County Fermanagh. Amongst its plans was to establish a luxury hotel and marina on the shores of Ball Hill outside Donegal Town.It went into administration in August 2010 owing its bank over £7m and Mr Elroy was bankrupted earlier this year.Allied Irish Banks is now seeking to have Mrs McElroy declared bankrupt.The details are contained in a recently published High Court ruling in which Mrs McElroy was successful in winning the right to introduce fresh evidence in an appeal to the bankruptcy court. The usual legal principle is that people should produce all available evidence to the bankruptcy court at the initial stage.The bankruptcy petition jointly named Mr and Mrs Elroy and they were jointly represented.However, Mr Justice Deeny accepted that it is not clear whether Mrs Elroy ever consulted the barrister.He gave her the right to introduce new affidavits which make the case that she was “a housewife of a farmer who then turned to property development” and that she “signed documents without reading them or without independent advice”.She further argues that she was not separately represented throughout the bankruptcy proceedings.
