MONTEREY PARK – El Camino Real of Woodland Hills’ players knew it, and so did their coaches. Even Shanna Sarris, who guided the Conquistadores to their last three City Section girls’ soccer titles, admitted she was blown away with how much Sylmar had improved since an 11-goal loss to ECR in last season’s quarterfinals. But Sylmar’s bid to make history Saturday night at East L.A. College’s Weingart Stadium fell short against a team that knows a thing or two about rewriting the record books. Behind two goals from Katie Etcher and a second-minute score from Megan Quinn, the top-seeded Conquistadores extended their dynasty with a seventh consecutive City title, turning away a valiant effort from the No. 2 Spartans with a 3-0 victory. Sylmar senior goalkeeper Nicole Gonzalez made seven saves, but Quinn and Etcher capitalized for the Conquistadores when it mattered most. “Our training is to get to the City finals and win it,” Etcher said. “We all worked so hard for this and put so much desire into it and wanted it so bad. It’s an amazing feeling to know you contributed to your team.” Senior goalkeeper Ashley Menin recorded four saves for ECR (20-2-4) to post her fourth shutout of the postseason – with only Taft of Woodland Hills scoring in the second round – and her third consecutive shutout in a championship game. “I couldn’t be happier right now,” said senior Michelle Oakes, who helped extend the Conquistadores’ postseason winning streak to 32 consecutive games with two assists. “I’m so proud of my team. It’s such a balanced team and I love the girls so much. I’m just happy to go out with a bang.” ECR extended its unbeaten streak against City opponents to 50, and also moved into a tie for second in state history with its seventh consecutive title, joining Bakersfield (1989-95) and Pleasant Valley of Chico (1996-2002). firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3607 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

You’re all set! “With these girls, you can’t let down against them at any time, because we always take advantage of our opportunities,” said Eric Choi, who became the third coach to guide ECR to a championship. “Sylmar played very hard and very well. We plan on seeing them in the future as well.” The Spartans (30-3) rode a 27-match winning streak – second-longest in area history – to reach Saturday’s final, recording the biggest win in program history over Granada Hills in Tuesday’s semifinals to become the first Valley Mission League team to compete in a City girls’ final. But Quinn’s quick strike and goals by Etcher in the last 30 seconds of the first half and the first five minutes of the second were too much for Sylmar to overcome. “They scored on three mistakes and that’s why the girls are so upset,” said Sylmar coach Jose Navarro, who consoled several emotional players following the game. “We wanted to do something nobody thought we could do, but the inexperience hurt us. I’m very proud of my girls because they refused to let them have anything. But I give El Camino a lot of credit, they’re an amazing team.” Sylmar used its speed to create a few chances in the opening half, but the discipline of the Conquistadores’ defense, led by Chelsea Forte, Lindsey Forte, Erin O’Leary, Jessica Stadheim and Ashleigh Thomas, didn’t give the Spartans too many openings.
Dry and dark Responding to demand, cruise promoters are increasingly chartering entire 3,000-bed cruise ships for Christian passengers so they can control the environment onboard. That means more ships are sailing with “darkened” casinos and the bars serve nonalcoholic beverages. “The great thing with the Christian market is the ability to take a typical Carnival cruise and change that to a Christian theme,” said Cherie Weinstein, vice president of group sales and administration at Miami-based Carnival Corp., the world’s largest cruise operator. “They will shut down the casinos, remove all liquor from the bars, or at least move it from display.” They can also make sure showgirls cover up racy outfits and swap out naughty comedians for clean comics. Weinstein said full-ship charters cost more because of lost revenue from the casinos and bars. Imagine a cruise to Alaska where the casino is converted into a Christian bookstore, the bars serve orange juice but no vodka, and the Vegas-style entertainers are replaced with G-rated comedians and preachers. Forget the Love Boat. Think Love Thy Neighbor. Special interests have long taken to the high seas to pursue their passions with like-minded travelers. There are cruises for chocolate lovers, clothing-optional groups, Trekkies, craft enthusiasts and gays and lesbians. But Christian cruises change the traditional cruise experience more fundamentally than any other niche. But Carnival works with the cruise promoters to make up the losses elsewhere, with sales of books and audio tapes, for example. Full-ship charters still represent a small slice of the overall cruise business, but it’s a desirable slice. “It’s a very important portion because it’s volume business,” said Weinstein. Most Christian cruises sail out of ports in Florida or the Gulf Coast. But rising demand in California and the Southwest is prompting cruise companies to consider more excursions to Mexico from the ports of Long Beach and Los Angeles, said Lisa Mann of All Christian Cruises, based in Roswell, Ga. Even when Christian cruise promoters share the ship with other groups or individuals, they tend to do things in a way that stands out. Premier Christian Cruises’ Girl’s Get-A-Way weekend trip to Cozumel, Mexico, offers morning worship services and a fashion show by Christi’s Pure Fashion, a Glendale, Ohio, company that makes modest clothing that encourages women to celebrate their “authentic beauty.” Pilgrimage to leisure Historically, religious travel has fallen under the category of either educational tours to the Holy Land or mission trips to evangelize and do outreach in disadvantaged areas. But the rise of Christian marketing has resulted in busy religious families looking for a way to relax and maybe worship at the same time. “There has been a generational change,” said David Meier, a Baptist minister in Texas who started International Travel & Tour Consultants 38 years ago. The company still arranges educational trips to Israel, Egypt and Greece, following in the footsteps of St. Paul. But not as many as it used to. “There was a time when there was a very heavy demand. There aren’t as many people traveling now for that; it’s more for leisure and relaxation.” Kevin Wright, a religious market consultant and co-founder of the World Religious Travel Association, said that in the past decade, the religious travel model has shifted from groups traveling to a religious destination with a religious intent to religious people looking for fun and friendship. The Christian cruise offers a tempting package. For about $599 for a four-night, five-day cruise, travelers of faith can take a real vacation along with some religious enrichment. Tours to the Holy Land start at about $1,300, not including airfare, said Honnie Korngold, president of Christian Travel Finder, an agency in Sunset Beach. “It’s one thing to fly your family down to Florida and go to the Bahamas and back,” said John Sanders, a co-founder of Premier Christian Cruises and vocalist for the Christian band, Brother’s Keeper. “It’s another thing to take them through other countries and through a dangerous environment.” In the same boat Family-themed cruises like Premier’s “VeggieTales & Friends Cruise” and singles trips are popular subsets of the Christian cruise niche. Tom Harris, a 52-year-old minister from San Diego, just finished a one-week singles cruise out of Fort Lauderdale to Key West, Cozumel and Belize. “It’s lonely to travel if you’re single,” he said. “I’ve been on trips with two or three friends, but it sounded thrilling to be with a group in my age bracket that I might have faith in common with.” He said he didn’t meet a significant other on the trip, but he did make some great friends and is already planning his next Christian cruise. Harris’ cruise was not a full-ship charter, so he was rubbing shoulders with plenty of non-Christians and made friends with a Jewish couple. In a show of brotherly love, most tour operators say sharing the whole ship with the larger cruise population – gambling, alcohol, and all – is no problem. Lorilee Scott’s Matter of the Heart Ministries organizes cruises for Christian singles who share space with non-Christians. “If people say they can’t be where there’s alcohol, I say this is not the cruise for you. I’m a Southern Baptist, but I know that Jesus drank wine, not grape juice.” She said she wouldn’t serve drinks at a Christian-related seminar, and if someone showed up in a bikini, she might ask them to cover up. But there’s never a problem, she said. Her travelers get along great with everyone, she said, because they are not judgmental. Not just the religion Indeed, most Christian cruises are organized along secular lines with plenty of music, sporting contests, dancing and other features of standard cruises. Some of the most popular are floating music festivals, headlined by superstars from the contemporary Christian music world. Christian illusionists and even Christian wrestlers are onboard as well. Retired Army veteran Ken Bachini and his wife, Michelle, have been on two cruises with artists from K-Love, a contemporary Christian radio network, and they have already signed up for their third this year. Bachini said he likes being surrounded by music he is already familiar with, and that the Christian environment makes him feel more comfortable traveling with his children. “The people are so friendly. There’s not a lot of vulgar language going on, \ you feel fine having your kids on the boat,” said Bachini, who has done both Christian and secular cruises. “You tend to see more rudeness on the non-Christian cruises. The way people are treating one another, it is night and day.” Travel agents and cruise operators say they are girding for even more growth. Effective Jan. 1, 2008, all cruise passengers will be required to have passports to travel to Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean. (Similar passport rules went into effect for air travelers in January.) “Travel is a very new frontier for Christians,” said Honnie Korngold. “I would say 75 percent of our Mexico cruise had never been on a cruise before. … With the new passport laws, it will be easier for them to think about traveling abroad.” Skeptic’s view Not everyone is convinced, however, about the new religious travel model. Ronen Paldi, president of Ya’lla Tours, a Portland, Ore., agency that specializes in tours to biblical lands, agrees that the demographic of faith-based travel is changing. But he doesn’t think Christian cruises are where the growth will continue to be. “The cruise is very interesting,” he said. “But I think we are reaching its peak right now. What will continue to grow is people going for the real thing and seeing the real sites.” email@example.com (818) 713-3662 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

“We know that Morocco is an excellent team,” he told reporters.“We cant afford to relax… We need to be awake with our eyes open and be aware that Morocco aren’t going to give anything away.”The 2010 winners drew their opener 3-3 with European champions Portugal and, after making hard work of a narrow 1-0 win over Iran, they need at least a point to make the last 16 for the first time since that tournament.“It’s always tough against teams who are eliminated,” Hierro said. “Mathematically we have not yet qualified and we have to give the match the importance it deserves.”Morocco were the first team eliminated from Russia but coach Herve Renard on Sunday claimed his side had been on the wrong end of several refereeing decisions during successive 1-0 losses.“When you look at the facts in the Portugal game, it’s totally unfair,” Renard said.“For the goal we conceded, there was an obvious foul by (defender) Pepe at the front post. Why did (the referee) not see it?“It’s unfair that we’re already eliminated but we have to accept reality.”Spain midfielder Sergio Busquets said he had some sympathy.“Often football is not fair,” he told reporters. “It’s true that at the level they’ve been playing they deserve more than zero points. But it’s hard to win matches at this World Cup.”– ‘Not focused on past’ –Real Madrid midfielder Isco has impressed in Spain’s first two matches © AFP/File / Roman KruchininSpain dominated the international game for nearly a decade, winning an unprecedented Euro and World Cup treble between 2008-2012 with their brand of high-tempo, possession-based play anchored by the legendary Barcelona linchpin Xavi.But a new generation of playmakers are making their World Cup bow this time around, including young Real Madrid trio Isco, Lucas Vazquez and Marco Asensio.Hierro singled out Isco for praise after the midfielder’s impressive performances against Portugal and Iran.“Isco always contributes with his quality and hardwork, he’s good one on one, he can sneak between lines and he’s hard to pin down,” said Hierro, himself a Real alumnus.Depending on the Portugal result, a win or draw Monday would see Spain play either Russia or Uruguay from Group A in the second round — their first World Cup knockout game since winning the final in Johannesburg eight years ago.The build-up this time around was chaotic, with Hierro only given the head coach role two days before the Portugal tie after Julen Lopetegui’s spectacular sacking.Hierro said the squad were focused and eager to go far in the tournament after Spain’s disastrous first-round exit four years ago in Brazil.“You could focus on what happened four years ago or eight years ago,” he said.“These lads have been world and European champions. We’re not focusing on the past, now is the time to fight to win our group.”0Shares0000(Visited 2 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000Spain coach Hierro has urged his players not to take Morocco lightly © AFP / OZAN KOSEKALININGRAD, Russian Federation, Jun 25 – Spain coach Fernando Hierro said Sunday his players would not make the mistake of underestimating a Morocco side playing for pride in their World Cup Group B decider in Kaliningrad.Spain need a result from Monday’s encounter and Hierro vowed his players would not take the North Africans lightly.
0Shares0000Victor Wanyama wheels away in celebrating his goal against Liverpool on February 4, 2018.NAIROBI, Kenya, Feb 5- Harambee Stars captain and Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Victor Wanyama has disclosed in the aftermath of his wonder-strike against Liverpool on Sunday, that his teammates had told him never to shoot again after some below per efforts.Wanyama came on for Moussa Dembele in the 79th minute of Spurs’ 2-2 draw against Liverpool at Anfield and with barely two minutes on the pitch struck a worldie from almost 25 yards out to pull his side level at 1-1. “I have had several shots at goal since I returned and some of the lads were not happy and they said that I should not be shooting again but i said to myself that I would continue shooting and one day it will get into the back of the net and that day was today,” Wanyama joked speaking to Spurs’ official TV stream after the game.The sentiments were shared by striker Harry Kane who was at the centre of the game, missing a penalty and scoring a late one as he joined an elite list of Premier League players to reach 100 league goals.“He’s proved us wrong! He had a few shots recently and they have all gone to the corner flag and we told him not to shoot. But fair play to him he stuck it for us today and he pulled us one of the best strikes I have seen. I probably haven’t seen a better one in my career to be fair,” the English forward who described the goal as a ‘wonder strike’ further opined.Harry Kane wheels away in celebrating his goal against Liverpool on February 4, 2018 with Victor Wanyama in the background. PHOTO/Daily MailWanyama has had a slow return to the Spurs first team since fully recovering from a knee injury that put him out for a period of four months and is yet to be in the starting 11 for a Premier League match.The midfield workhorse said he was delighted to play a positive role for the side, adding that getting a point away to Liverpool is no mean task.“I thought in the second half we played much better. We had a feeling we would score but unfortunately we didn’t until I came on and I got a goal. Sometimes it’s difficult; you can shoot and don’t score. I am happy I scored today to help the team,”“It is a difficult place to come because they always give us a tough time but today we got better and showed what we can do and I think we deserved to win today,” the midfielder further stated.The result sees Spurs remain at fifth on the English Premier League table, four ahead of North London rivals Arsenal who they face on Saturday in Wembley.Before then, Spurs will take on League Two side Newport County in the FA Cup on Wednesday and Wanyama might start the match.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today)
Jurgen Klopp and Ilkay Gundogan 1 It is widely believed Jurgen Klopp, the two time Bundesliga winner, will take over at Liverpool.Brendan Rodgers was sacked at the weekend, with the German apparently waiting in the wings. Here, talkSPORT looks at the latest from Germany and what the players who know him think…KLOPP HAS NOTHING TO SAYBild journalist Phillip Arens caught up with Klopp in Leverkusen yesterday when he was at a meeting of the Federal German Football Coaches (LMA) at the BayArena. He was asked about Liverpool and the answer was simple: ‘There’s nothing to say.”HE LIKES THE CITY AND CLUBAccording to Sascha Bacinski, a reporter for Sky Sports in Germany, Klopp is a ‘great fan of Liverpool. “It’s kind of like what Dortmund was like when he took over seven years ago. A lot of history, a lot of potential, a lot of tradition,” he said.GUNDOGAN CAN SEE ITIlkay Gundogan, the Borussia Dortmund midfielder said his former boss moving to Liverpool is something he can see happening. “I’ve not had that much contact with him recently, and I’ve not followed much of what has been said, but I think Klopp would be a great fit at many clubs and I believe also at Liverpool,” the Germany international said at a national team press conference.“Of course it’s something I can see happening. I think Klopp is capable of helping many top clubs in the world.”ENGLAND NEXT STEP FOR KLOPP“I can definitely see it happening and there’s absolutely no reservations at all in terms of his expertise,” Olivier Kahn, Germany’s former goalkeeper told Sport1 television. “England would be the right next step for Klopp, also in terms of his personal development.”

PICO RIVERA – Dave Hertzing, the director of community development, and Scott Wasserman, manager of the public safety division, are the latest department heads to leave the city. Hertzing retired Wednesday after 20 years with Pico Rivera. Wasserman, whose last day is today, is leaving to become a human services administrator for the city of Santa Monica. Wasserman, 34, said although he feels positive about the new public safety division, he could not refuse an opportunity to advance his career. “It’s a return to grassroots community work, where I will get to use my Spanish and do a little social work every day,” he said. The move has nothing to do with the recent hiring of Chuck Fuentes as Pico Rivera’s city manager or the politics of a new majority in the City Council (Mayor David Armenta, Councilman Ron Beilke and Councilman Pete Ramirez), he said. Hertzing could not be reached for comment. But Councilman Gregory Salcido, who opposed the hiring of Fuentes because of his lack of a bachelor’s degree, believes these departures are due to changes at City Hall since the March election. In that election, Beilke won a seat on the council, forming the current majority. That newly constituted majority fired longtime City Manager Dennis Courtemarche and appointed Fuentes to the city staff as a $50,000-a-year administrative consultant. “To date, the city has lost seven senior administrators to other cities or expedited retirements,” said Salcido. “This is not a coincidence.” Others who left in 2005 include Cindy Lu-Gans, the parks and recreation director, Finance Director Marcie Medina, City Clerk Chris Schaefer and Public Works Director Gail Farber. Only two of those positions have been filled – the city manager and recreation director.Patty Bailey, the city’s acting parks and recreation director, was promoted to the latter position. Wasserman and Hertzing were considered professionals by those they worked with, said Salcido. Hertzing joined the city in 1986 as director of building services. Following a reorganization in 1992, he was promoted to director of community development. Wasserman was with the city for about five years and was a recreation manager prior to being named the manager of the public safety division. firstname.lastname@example.org (562) 698-0955, Ext. 3028
Jurgen Klopp doesn’t usually comment on transfer rumours, but he couldn’t help himself in the summer.When the Liverpool manager was asked in May, following the 1-0 Premier League defeat to Chelsea, about a rumour the club had agreed a deal for France star Nabil Fekir – during the game – and were also keen on Ousmane Dembele, he did little to quash the story.

Now I’m interested,” he said smiling.It may have been said been tongue-in-cheek, disguised as Klopp being his jovial self to avoid angering Barcelona, but as he said himself it was already more than he normally says.And the Reds continue to be linked with a move for the Barcelona forward, with reports suggesting they could launch an £85million bid to bring him to Liverpool in January.
