Harmon paces Bulldogs

first_imgPasadena (24-2, 14-0) increased its league winning streak to 34 games. “We wanted to keep the streak going and it’s special to get a win against Muir,” Pasadena coach Tim Tucker said. “Muir’s a much-improved team and they’re going to do some damage in the playoffs.” Harmon did most of the damage to keep the streak alive. After hitting just three shots in the first half, he sank seven in the second half, including three 3-pointers. He finished 10 of 21 from the field and 4 of 8 from 3-point range. “This is a big win for us,” said Harmon, who had seven rebounds. “I wanted to step up as a leader tonight. I took control of the game and we came out with the victory.” PASADENA – Facing its archrival, the Pasadena High School boys basketball team wasn’t expecting anything less than Muir’s best shot in their Pacific League finale Thursday night. For two quarters, the Mustangs were right there with the No. 1 team in the CIF-Southern Section Division II-AA poll. That’s when Bulldogs guard Trevon Harmon decided to make his presence felt. Harmon poured in 24 of his game-high 34 points in the second half to lift Pasadena to a 69-55 victory in front of a standing room only crowd at Muir. center_img Added Tucker: “He’s been here four years and we wanted to put the game in his hands.” Nigel Ajere, who almost didn’t play because of illness, had 14 points and a team-high 10 rebounds for Pasadena and Torey Phillips had 12 points and five assists. Muir (14-12, 8-6) took an early 6-3 lead and stayed toe-to-toe with Pasadena throughout the first half before the Bulldogs took a 23-19 halftime lead into the locker room. James Dunlap’s put-back pulled Muir within two points to start the third quarter, but Phillips and Harmon hit back-to-back 3-pointers to spark a string of eight unanswered Bulldogs points. Pasadena closed out the quarter with 10 straight points to take a commanding 45-29 advantage. Muir cut the gap to 45-35 in the fourth, but got no closer than nine the rest of the way. “You have to give it to Muir. They came out and played us aggressively,” Tucker said. Lance Mitchell led the Mustangs with 18 points and Dunlap had 16 points. The Mustangs saw their five-game winning streak come to an end and finished tied for second in league with Hoover. The Tornadoes swept the Mustangs in their head-to-head matchup to earn the tie-breaker and drop Muir to third place. scott.galetti@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4456 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Donegal Association in Dublin’s practical solution to help students find accommodation

first_imgThe Donegal community of both home and away have come together this week to help Donegal students who are finding it impossible to find accommodation amidst the housing crisis.Students find it difficult to secure housing at this time of year due to the influx of people to cities like Dublin to attend third-level, as well as the fact that many landlords specifically ask for no student applications on property applications due to stereotypes. Cost is also a huge factor. The amalgam of these elements makes securing accommodation in Dublin at this time of year very difficult.A spokesperson of the Donegal Community in Dublin told Donegal Daily that as they are aware of the issues facing students from Donegal, they have set up a Facebook page to connect those in search of accommodation, and those who may be interested in renting a room. “All you need to do is join the event and comment either if you’re looking for accommodation or if you have a room available to rent. For example: Single room available to rent in Drumcondra for nine months. Even if you’re neither of the above we would love if you could share the event and help us spread the word.”To visit the Facebook page click here.Donegal Association in Dublin’s practical solution to help students find accommodation was last modified: August 26th, 2017 by Elaine McCalligShare 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:CollegedonegalDONEGAL ASSOCIATIONdublinrentstudent accommodationlast_img read more
