Lombán: “Is the salary cut? We are ready to help the club ”


first_imgHow do you carry the confinement ?: “We handle the situation as best we can, trying to physically support ourselves as much as possible. I get along well, I am quite a home person and I think it is not a great effort that we are being asked to stay home. I am strictly adhering to it. I am with my partner and I try to have a daily routine that is not far from what my life was. Get up early, have breakfast, do exercises to keep fit and then spend time with chores around the house, reading, watching series, movies … “.What message does the club transmit to them ?: “The club transmits tranquility and patience to us and that we do not lower our arms because at any moment we can return. You have to keep fit and prepared for the decisions that may come. ”How do you think this situation will be resolved ?: “I think it will be played, I do not know in what periods or when. The fairest thing would be to finish. What I am in favor of is that health comes first and when everything is well secured, the secondary can start walking. ”Workforce salary reduction: “We have been talking, in communication. It is true that the club is the one that has to take the measures and do the corresponding studies. Each club has a totally different situation and the players have always been willing to listen and help the club from day one. Ours is a different situation than the rest because of everything we have been experiencing since the beginning of the year. Now the administrator has to take the necessary measures. All the employees and the players have been willing to listen. We are not clear about anything, studies are being done and when everything is clear we will be notified and an agreement will be reached in every way. ”The club has a huge pay gap: “The numbers that come out are worrying. We decided to be isolated from everything. The situation is worrying from the beginning of the season. The players decided to isolate ourselves from all this because we do not know how true the news that comes to us is. We live day by day and each one, from their situation, tries to help as much as possible ”.Shaheen’s moves: “Everything we have experienced since the beginning of the season is unreal. We must dedicate ourselves to minimize problems and play. People will be deceived by the press conference that he gave, which was a bit unrealistic because of the numbers he gave and because of the sports city. We live in a very uncomfortable situation at the beginning of the season ”. Renewal: “They have told me that they are happy with me, but they have not spoken because of the uncertainty the club is experiencing. I have always shown that I am happy at Malaga. We do not know what will happen or how the club will be, neither tomorrow nor the day after. I am at ease, I have been treated spectacularly from the first day. I am happy, I belong to a very large club and I would like to help as much as possible to return it where it deserves ”.He has had to experience the worst moments of Malaga in recent years: “Football gives you many things, not just results, and Malaga has given me a lot. It is a big powerlessness not to be able to see Malaga where it deserves and where it should be as a club, but I do not think it will give up. I will continue working for it. The possibilities that Málaga has as a club, until you know them, you don’t know them. I do not regret having made this decision at all. Málaga, I do not know how long, but it will return to where it has to be. One of the great powers that the club has is that there are very few players who do not want to play for Malaga. That is always going to be able to take advantage of this club. Málaga is a big club and it has many possibilities ”.Preseason before playing again: “Soccer cannot be trained anywhere that is not a soccer field. Today we would need an adaptation period, but I don’t know if a week or 15 days. The important thing is to play again and that this is over as soon as possible ”.Where could Málaga go in this season finale ?: “I do not know. Let’s see if we compete again and then we’ll see. Our goal is to win every game, we cannot think of anything other than day to day. With the situation that Malaga is experiencing day by day, thinking about the future is impossible ”.Play behind closed doors: “It is a shame, but not for us, but for depriving people of the essence of soccer, enjoying it and living it on the field. We want to play in any way and doing it behind closed doors is not going to be an impediment. It will be worse for people who cannot attend the field than for us. Play every 48 hours? Playing 11 games 48 hours apart I don’t know if the teams are going to be ready. I don’t know how it will be done, but the more hours that pass between games, the better. ”Sequelae of coronavirus: “There will surely be a before and an after. The country will suffer a lot, the recovery will be slow in every way. But I want to see the positive things. As human beings it will make us better, feeling vulnerable and weak will make us leave selfishness aside and be more supportive and it will make us stronger. That will improve the human being ”.last_img


From shootout to second best in province, Nelson Selects surprise medal winner at Provincial B U13 Boys Cup

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsNo one gave the Nelson Selects much of a chance at the B.C. Soccer U13 Boy’s Provincial B Cup — especially after the Heritage City squad needed shootout to dispose of Kootenay rivals Kootenay South.But the Selects surprise many of the experts by winning silver after falling 2-0 to Prince George Kodiaks in the final Sunday in Powell River.“It was a little disappointing to fall short at the very end of a long, hard road, but the boys can hold their heads high,” said coach Paul Dawson.“Prince George is a well-coached, tactically sound team and they deserved the victory.”“The boys gave everything they had for the four days, but in the end, missing five key players for various reasons meant it was always going to be challenging,” Dawson added.Two first half goals proved to be the difference in the final as the Northern Reps edged our Nelson.“By the last game four of our players on the field were playing with injuries, but they continued to fight hard to the final whistle,” Dawson explained.“At one point it looked like we might not even be able to attend the Provincials, so to win silver against the best teams in B.C. at this level, is a remarkable achievement.”Nelson opened the tourney by surprising Kamloops Blaze 2-1. Goals by Quinn Dawson and Bryce Twible gave Nelson the 2-0 lead. But the difference in the game may have been the incredible save off a penalty kick by Nelson keeper Parker Shaw-Lintz. Nelson lost to Coquitlam 5-3 during game two as the Lower Mainland squad rallied from an early Nelson lead.“(Coquitlam) is large and physical team,” said assistant coach Simon Lintz.  “Full credit to them for coming back after our early goals.”Realizing the team could finish first or last in the pool, Nelson pulled off a 2-1 win over Comox Valley.Darian Johnson proved to be the hero scoring the winner for Nelson after Nigel Ziegler corralled a Guss Lammers cross to score the first goal of the game.“We’ve had great support from the parents, the team manager, and the rep coordinators at Nelson Youth Soccer,” Dawson explained. “Having Soccer Quest assist us in development helped us peak at just the right time, and Simon and I are very proud of the boys for what they’ve accomplished this year.”sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img

Castlegar special teams make Leafs pay during 6-3 KIJHL victory Saturday night in Nelson

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsThe Nelson Leafs rolled the dice Saturday night against the Castlegar Rebels, believing the Heritage City squad could play undisciplined hockey and still win.However, the defending Kootenay Conference Champs didn’t get to the KIJHL final last season by fluke.The Rebels looked to be in mid-season form, making the Leafs pay for their mistakes by scoring four times on the power play en route to a 6-3 Kootenay International Junior Hockey League drubbing of Nelson at the NDCC Arena.The win by the Sunflower City squad avenged a 3-0 loss Friday in Castlegar.“I thought we controlled the play for a good portion of the game but penalties just killed us really in the (third period),” said Leaf defenceman Tyler Parfeniuk, wearing the captain’s “C” for the game.“I thought we were playing well except for a 10-minute span in the third period.”The Kelowna native was correct in his assessment of the game.The Leafs displayed flashes of brilliance before a somewhat controversial goal eight minutes into the third period by Aaron Brewer appeared to turn the tide in the favour of the Rebels.Brewer sped into the Leaf end and dribbled a shot past Leaf goalie Patrick Defoe.The Leafs protested the net was already dislodged from the goal line before players colliding with Defoe completely removed the goal.However, two consecutive power play goals by Tyler Robinson and Erik Alden, the latter coming less than two minutes after Brewer’s game winner, was more than enough to erase any controversy and give Castlegar its first win of the season.“I’m obviously happy . . . happy with the win,” said Rebel head coach Steve Junker. “It’s nice to get that first one out of the way.”“We took a step in the right direction tonight,” Junker added. “I don’t think we had a very good start . . . it was pretty sloppy on both sides. But we were able to find a way to win and obviously finding the back of the net helps with confidence. Hopefully we can build off of that.”Nelson held leads of 1-0 thanks to a shorthanded marker by Patrick Martens and 3-2-advantage after two second period goals by James Sorriey and Max Mois erased a 2-1 Castlegar lead.But Anthony Delong tied the game at 3-3 with a marker late in the middle frame on a delayed penalty.And the Rebels made the Leafs pay for their undisciplined ways with three goals in the third.Delong and Alden each finished the game with two goals and an assist for three points.Tyler Robinson scored the other Castlegar marker.Alex Ross was solid in goal, especially in the second period when Nelson peppered the Montrose native with 14 shots. Ross finished the game stopping 24 of 27 pucks.Defoe, who started training camp in Castlegar, took the loss.Both coaches are eager to get some practice time after a month of finding the right players to fill out the respective rosters.The Leafs next game is Friday when the Green and White host Kelowna Chiefs while the Rebels travel to Grand Forks to meet the Border Bruins.ICE CHIPS: Prior to the start of Saturday’s game the Leafs paid tribute to four people who played major roles in Nelson hockey. Two devoted fans, Nina Arabia and Harold Epp, died during the off season as well as former senior Leaf goalie Gerry Koehle and longtime scorekeeper Jim Kienholz. The bearded scorekeeper was killed in a plane crash over the summer. . . .Leaf defenceman Walker Sidoni tried to fire up his teammates after going toe-to-toe  with Anthony Delong in a third-period tilt. Sidoni, however, was whistled for the extra two-minutes for instigating allowing the Rebels to score its fifth goal of the game on the power play. . . .Nelson lost its second defenceman of the night minutes later when Riley Henderson was hit with a checking-from-behind penalty, which carries an automatic game misconduct.sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img

Walls Tabbed as 17th Annual Division I FCS ADA Scholar-Athlete of the Year

first_imgDivision I FCS ADA Academic Scholar-Athlete of the Year Release CLEVELAND, Ohio – Already having accumulated a plethora of academic honors in his four years a Lumberjack football player, recently graduated Stephen F. Austin safety Marlon Walls can add another prestigious award to his name. Walls has been chosen as one of two recipients of the 17th Division I Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association (FCS ADA) Scholar-Athlete of the Year accolade, the organization announced Wednesday morning. The plaudit comes on the heels of Walls gaining several major national recognitions following the 2017 season. As FCS Scholar-Athlete of the Year, Walls will receive a $5,000 postgraduate scholarship during the Association’s annual Awards Luncheon, held in conjunction with the National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics (NACDA) Convention at the Gaylord National Resort & Convention Center in Washington, D.C., June 28-30. Walls and University of San Diego nickelback Max Michaels were selected from a group of nine FCS ADA Academic All-Star Team finalists. 2018: Marlon Walls, Defensive Back2017: Marlon Walls, Defensive Back2014: Ryne Chambers, Offensive Lineman2012: Drew Nelson, Punter2011: Drew Nelson, Punter2008: Cory Long, Kicker About the FCS ADA: Now in its 24th year, the FCS ADA’s mission is to enhance FCS football. For more information on the FCS ADA, please visit www.fcsada.com. The FCS ADA is administered by NACDA, which is in its 53rd year. For more information on NACDA and the 17 professional associations that fall under its umbrella, please visit www.nacda.com. “First of all, it’s a great honor to have received recognition, after-the-fact, for my undergraduate work both on and off the field,” said Walls. “With this scholarship, I will be able to focus all of my time into my research and classes without the potential of a financial burden along the way. In doing so, I will be able to gain an advantage early on within my research group and concentrate on grasping the material in my graduate level courses. In all, I’ll be better equipped to succeed as a grad student and, more importantly, in my profession.” A native of Pearland, Texas (Pearland H.S.), Walls was the Southland’s pick as a 2017 STATS FCS Doris Robinson Scholar-Athlete Award finalist. The safety is also a three-time CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team selection and was a nominee for both the 2016 and 2017 Allstate/American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) Good Works Team. Placed on the Southland’s All-Academic Team the past three seasons, Walls was a member of the Southland fall commissioner’s honor roll each year since his freshman campaign in 2014. Named to the SFA President’s List every semester of his career, he was the recipient of the SFA physics department’s Brian Patrick Hanson Memorial Scholarship last year and claimed the Murray Shaw Award for owning the highest GPA of any Lumberjack football player. The only Lumberjack to ever earn College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-America® of the Year honors, Walls was tabbed an Academic All-American® First Team selection for the second-straight year in 2017. He became just the third student-athlete in the history of the Southland to attain the title of CoSIDA Academic All-American® of the Year since the inception of the plaudit in 1987 and is the first SFA football player in program history to be named Academic All-American® First Team. In claiming the national honor, which includes both FCS and FBS football student-athletes, Walls joined an illustrious fraternity of Academic All-Americans® of the Year with some of the most notable names in the sport. Previous CoSIDA Academic All-America® of the Year selections include Danny Wuerffel (Florida, 1995 & 1996), Peyton Manning (Tennessee, 1997), Drew Brees (Purdue, 2000), Alex Smith (Utah, 2004), Tim Tebow (Florida, 2008 & 2009) and Andrew Luck (Stanford, 2011). SFA’s first William V. Campbell Trophy® finalist and National Football Foundation (NFF) National Scholar-Athlete, Walls’ accomplishments were highlighted in front of one of the most powerful audiences in all of sports this past December at the 2017 NFF & College Hall of Fame Annual Awards Dinner in downtown New York City. The prestigious Campbell Trophy® is regarded as the highest scholar-athlete honor in all of college football and the academic equivalent to the Heisman Trophy. With SFA already having a Walter Payton Award winner in former quarterback Jeremy Moses (2010), the ‘Jacks became just the sixth football program in the nation to have both a Walter Payton Award winner and a NFF National Scholar-Athlete. Of those, only five schools have had both a Walter Payton Award winner and a Campbell Trophy® finalist since the Campbell Trophy® began in 1990.center_img Last summer Walls completed an internship at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory. While there, he joined other students from institutions such as MIT, Stanford and Yale to assist with the Europa Propulsion Module, a NASA space probe joint project. Walls returned to Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in January and is gaining more work experience before pursuing a graduate degree in mechanical engineering this fall. A special Review Committee of FCS athletics directors were tasked with selecting the all-star team and scholarship finalists. Completing this task were Thorr Bjorn, Rhode Island (chair); Bruce McCutcheon, Lafayette; Bill Smith, Bryant; and Nathan Pine, Holy Cross. Football players from all FCS institutions are eligible for the award. Each of the nominees were required to have a minimum grade point average of 3.20 (on a 4.00 scale) in undergraduate study and have been a starter or key player with legitimate athletics credentials. They must have reached their second year of athletics and academic standing at the nominated institution and have completed a minimum of one full academic year at the nominated institution. They must also have participated in 50 percent of the games played at his designated position. SFA’s FCS ADA Academic All-Star Recipients On the gridiron, Walls recorded 60 tackles, including 31 solo stops and two tackles for loss, while playing in all 11 games and making 10 starts this season. He registered a career-high 11 total tackles versus 17th-ranked Nicholls on Nov. 11 and posted nine tackles in two other outings. Walls also claimed three pass breakups, a quarterback hurry and a fumble recovery throughout the year. No Lumberjack on SFA’s current roster played in (46) or started (24) more games than Walls did throughout his four-year career in the purple and white. For the second consecutive year, Walls earned a spot on the FCS ADA Academic All-Star Team in January and was one of just four Southland Conference football players to appear on the 49-man list. In December, Walls attained his bachelor’s degree after posting an unblemished 4.00 grade point average while majoring in engineering physics and minoring in mathematics. A two-time Southland Conference Football Student-Athlete of the Year, Walls completed his undergraduate degree in three and a half years of study in Nacogdoches.last_img
