Can Canyon bounce back from loss to Burroughs?

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card Canyon can’t afford to overlook last-place Saugus or Burbank, which would like nothing more than to play spoiler. Valencia underestimated Hart earlier this year, suffering its only league loss. “Everyone is tough,” Phillips said. “Every game is a battle.” A Feb. 7 showdown against Valencia looms, and then the Cowboys close out the season against Hart in the finale. Perimeter playmaker: Canyon’s Lucas Guidroz had perhaps his finest game of the season in Friday’s loss to Burroughs, scoring 15 of his 17 points in the second and third quarters and hitting four 3-pointers. The senior is shooting 40 percent from 3-point range. His presence gives Canyon another scoring threat. Kris Rincon, Bryan Lewis and Ryan Kuhn each average more than 10 points per game and are among the top six scorers in the league. Guidroz is eighth, averaging nine points per game. Canyon High’s boys’ basketball team can do one of two things this week: beat itself up over blowing a double-digit lead in a six-point loss Friday to Burroughs of Burbank, or move on. The Cowboys need to move on or they risk falling out of contention in the Foothill League race. The good news for Canyon (14-8 overall, 4-2 Foothill) is that they’re tied for second-place with Burroughs (18-4, 4-2), one game behind Valencia (18-4, 5-1) heading into the final two weeks of the regular season. The Cowboys’ next two games are against Saugus and Burbank, which have three league wins in nine games combined. Said Canyon coach Chad Phillips: “This is make-it or break-it time.” “He’s big for us,” Phillips said. “He can light it up. He does the intangibles, too.” Postseason positioning: Hart and Burbank are tied for fourth, and there are four automatic playoff berths available in the Foothill League. The fifth-place team must await word on an at-large berth. Both teams must play Valencia, Burroughs and Canyon, all among the Daily News’ top 15 teams, in three of their final four games. Hart plays at Burroughs tonight and at Valencia on Friday. Burbank plays host to Valencia tonight and at Canyon on Friday.

PAT THE COPE MEETS COMPETITION COMMISSIONER OVER LOCAL AIRPORT WORRIES

first_imgMEP Pat the Cope Gallagher has met with the EU Competition Commissioner over concerns about proposals to reduce aid for regional airports including City of Derry and Ireland West Airport Knock.Pat The Cope Gallagher MEPPat the Cope met with Joaquín Almunia, the Vice President of the European Commission and EU Commissioner for Competition to express their concerns about draft proposals on state aid guidelines to airports and airlines.The draft guidelines by the European Commission will change the rules that permit EU Member States through national, regional and local authorities to invest in airport infrastructure, to provide operating aid to airports and to provide start up aid to airlines in order to launch a new air route. The European Commission are expected to approve the new rules by the beginning of 2014 Pat the Cope Gallagher MEP said “In early November, I along with over 45 MEPs from across the EU wrote an open letter to President Barroso, as we were extremely concerned with the proposal by the Commission to phase out operating aid for regional airports with over 200,000 passengers per year, after a 10 year transitional period.”“As a follow up to this initiative, I requested a meeting with Vice President Almunia, the Competition Commissioner to discuss directly with him the implications for Ireland West Airport in Knock, as passenger numbers per year are in excess of 700,000 and to outline similar concerns expressed by the City of Derry Airport.”Vice President confirmed today that he was willing to change his proposals to increase the minimum threshold from 200,000 to 500,000 passengers per year.He also confirmed that the proposals will undergo a comprehensive mid-term review in 5 years’ time before they are introduced in 10 years’ time, thus providing regional airports such as Knock and Derry with a window of opportunity. Mr Gallagher concluded “I believe that a much fairer and better solution would be to increase the minimum threshold to 1 million passengers per year. That said, I am pleased that the Vice President has shown a degree of flexibility by increasing the threshold to 500,000 passengers per year and by also including a mid-term review.“While the process will shortly conclude, I shall still continue to make the case for regional airports such as Knock and Derry, which contribute so positively to the economic well-being of the West and North West of Ireland.”Finally, Mr Gallagher stated that the decision to increase the minimum threshold to 500,000 will provide Carrickfinn airport in Donegal with ample opportunity to develop in the future. PAT THE COPE MEETS COMPETITION COMMISSIONER OVER LOCAL AIRPORT WORRIES was last modified: December 10th, 2013 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:Derry AirportKnock AirportMEPPat The Cope Gallagherlast_img read more
