UW looks to rebound at LaBahn

first_imgJunior goaltender Alex Rigsby surrendered three goals in the two losses to Minnesota-Duluth.[/media-credit]The Badgers’ offense was nowhere to be found last weekend, as the Wisconsin women’s hockey team not only suffered their first two defeats of the season, but were shutout twice on the road against Minnesota-Duluth at AMSOIL Arena.The 2-0 and 1-0 defeats marked the first time since 2001 that the Badgers (3-2-1, 1-2-1 WCHA) have not managed a single score in back-to-back games. The series also marked the end of a six-game road trip for Wisconsin, one which included games against Minnesota State and Lindenwood.“The toughest thing in our business is to score goals,” head coach Mark Johnson said at his weekly press conference. “We were unfortunate this weekend to come away empty-handed both nights. … Their goalie was good, and we didn’t capitalize on a lot of opportunities, especially on the powerplay.”What the Badgers did get in Duluth were several difficult breaks. In Friday’s game, the Bulldogs’ (2-2, 2-2) first goal came off a botched clear that left an open net for UMD forward Brienna Gillanders. The second goal came after a solid poke check from Wisconsin’s goaltender, Alex Rigsby, which sent the puck behind her into the Badgers’ net. Saturday’s 1-0 defeat was equally disappointing, as UW failed to find a breakthrough despite multiple chances and 25 shots on goal.As Johnson pointed out, the other problem for the Badgers was the lack of scoring on powerplays. While the defense looked impressive, thwarting all eight UMD powerplays, the Wisconsin offense was another story. On Friday, the powerplay unit went 0-for-5, as Bulldogs’ goaltender Kayla Black turned aside all 31 shots. Saturday’s effort was similar as the Badgers yet again failed to capitalize, finishing 0-for-3 on powerplays. Despite their first two losses of the season, UW’s head coach said his team is not panicking.“Everything’s pretty upbeat; everything’s pretty positive,” Johnson said. “The team has played pretty well. Unfortunately, we just came away this past weekend with not scoring the goals we needed to win hockey games.”Instead, they are looking forward to their home opener and the first game ever played at LaBahn Arena. The puck will drop in the brand new 2,400-seat arena Friday at 7 p.m. against Bemidji State, and game two of the series will take place Sunday at 2 p.m.Located directly behind the Kohl Center, LaBahn Arena is a sign of the growth of the Wisconsin women’s hockey program over the last decade. The program has won four national titles since 2006 and also has six Frozen Four appearances over that period.In regard to the new arena and the home opener, Johnson had only high praise.“The future is bright for the young athletes to get a chance to work out of the facility,” he said. “There’s so many wonderful things about it. Now we get to open it up Friday night. It will be a special week. It will be a special night for the hockey program.”Some wonder how long it will take to make LaBahn feel like home for the team, as the Badgers posted a 19-2 record at the Kohl Center last year. Johnson noted that the team is beginning to adjust to its new home.The more we play, obviously, the more comfortable we’ll be,” Johnson said. “But our players, after spending a couple of weeks in the locker room, spending a couple of weeks practicing, those things are starting to come.”The Badgers will look to start turning their new house into a home against a Bemidji State team they beat in all four games last year, and currently sits at the bottom of the conference with a 1-3 overall record. However, there is no guarantee Friday’s game will end with a comfortable victory, as the Badgers only escaped the last meeting with a one-goal victory.But it may take until the first puck drop Friday night for Johnson to fully absorb the changing face of his program. “I had to pinch myself this morning as I drove down to work,” he said. “It’s a reality. It hasn’t really hit me yet.”That’s understandable since the women’s hockey team has called the Kohl Center home since 1998, sharing the venue with the men’s hockey team and both the men’s and women’s basketball teams.Once the game begins, Johnson believes that the “pinch myself” mindset will be gone and “reality will be with us Friday night.”And if they want to open their new arena on a positive note, the Badgers will be needing some goals as well.last_img read more

Middletown Wants Microgrid Grant for Emergency Power

first_img“Staff is in the process of evaluating the 13 micro-grid feasibility studies that have been submitted and determining next steps,” said BPU spokesman Peter Peretzman in an email Feb. 14. “Through us, we can guarantee a price and a completion date,” he said. “We can have an operating system delivering power in under 30 months.” MIDDLETOWN – A New York-based real estate and infrastructure investment firm said last week that it is interested in partnering with Middletown on the construction of a microgrid to supply the community with backup power. “My interests are aligned with you,” he said to an audience that included township officials and others. “I want this service to get online efficiently and on time, because I don’t make any money otherwise.” The microgrid would supply power to the sites identified in the report, even in non-emergencies. A system relying upon a renewable energy source like solar would help the township immediately in case of an outage or a shortage, one Middletown official said at the information session. By Philip Sean Curran In all, the BPU awarded 13 grants to towns and others to create feasibility reports for microgrids. Middletown was hit hard in 2012 when Super Storm Sandy caused widespread and prolonged power outages. In 2017 Middletown received a $150,000 grant from the state Board of Public Utilities to create a feasibility study for a microgrid to supply power to “critical facilities” located in a 3.5-mile span of the township. Among other places, those include public schools, the municipal Sewage Authority, Naval Weapons Station Earle and traffic signals on Routes 35 and 36 and Leonardville Road.At the information meeting, municipal administrator Anthony P. Mercantante said the report is completed and went to the BPU for review. The project does not have a price tag yet or a location. David R. Soares, president and CEO of Lexden Capital, made his presentation Feb. 13 during an information session at the Middletown Arts Center about the project. He said the firm would work with the township from the pre-construction phase, through such steps as engineering, to building the grid. In an email Feb.15, Mercantante said the “BPU is supposed to select three or four proposals to go to the next phase for more detailed design, along with additional funding.” Paul Heitmann, president of Businovation and consultant on the project, said in a phone interview Feb.14 that the location of the grid would be determined during the upcoming design phase of the project. There was some initial thought of putting the entire grid at Naval Weapons Station Earle, but nothing has been finalized, he said. “So we expect to hear in a couple of months where we stand,” he said. “JCP&L has committed to working with the BPU, municipalities like Middletown and their consultants as they work to conduct feasibility studies related to development of microgrids and is providing information to help inform the studies,” JCP&L spokeswoman Jennifer Young said by email Feb.15. “It’s very early in the process and too soon to say how JCP&L might integrate with a microgrid in the future, but we will continue to engage in the process to determine the microgrid potential in Middletown.” “So there’s no delay and, most importantly, the power gets generated locally,” said township committeeman Kevin M. Settembrino. “We don’t have to wait for power from outside the region.” The township’s normal electricity provider is Jersey Central Power & Light. last_img read more

EL HUERFANO BATTLES BACK TO EARN HEAD VICTORY IN $60,000 SANTA ANITA ALLOWANCE FEATURE UNDER ESPINOZA; MILLER TRAINEE GETS MILE IN 1:37.05

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (March 31, 2016)–With favored Whiskey Ticket battling back to his inside, El Huerfano proved best late as he registered a hard-earned head victory under Victor Espinoza in Thursday’s $60,000 allowance feature at Santa Anita. Trained by Peter Miller, El Huerfano, winless in his last nine starts, covered a flat mile in 1:37.05.“A win is a win,” Espinoza cracked, after being reminded there was no where near the $10,000,000 that he pursued in winning last Saturday’s Dubai World Cup aboard California Chrome. “I thought it was going to be very close, but when the other horse came to me, my horse came back on again.”Off as the 2-1 second choice in a field of six older horses, El Huerfano sat a close third, just to the outside of Whiskey Ticket at the quarter pole, took charge a furlong out and repelled a gallant late surge from “Whiskey” to prevail, paying $6.80, $3.20 and $2.40.Owned by Wachtel Stable and Gary Barber, the 4-year-old California-bred colt by Tannersmyman was making his third start for Miller and picked up $46,800 for the win, increasing his earnings to $145,527. He now has four wins from 15 career starts.Trained by Bob Baffert, Whiskey Ticket, a winner of the Grade III Illinois Derby in his second career start on April 18, had been idle since well beaten in the Ohio Derby on June 20. Ridden by Martin Pedroza, he was off at 6-5 and paid $3.20 and $2.40.Ridden by Rafael Bejarano, Tribal jewel saved ground throughout and ran on for third money, finishing 2 ¾ lengths behind Whiskey Ticket. Off at 9-2, Tribal Jewel paid $2.20 to show.Fractions on the race were 23.11, 46.40, 1:11.10 and 1:23.82.First post time for an eight race card on Friday at Santa Anita is at 1 p.m. Admission gates open at 11 a.m.last_img read more
