As the match escalated, we picked each other up and helped each other. It was really a test of character for us,” he said after finishing with 12 points, nine rebounds, and two assists in 30 minutes of play.“We really got tested in this game. They really came out with ferocity. They played with fire and intensity.”Ginebra coach Tim Cone explained that there’s no reason for him to dwell on Aguilar’s play with the game still on the line.“It just happened. We were trying to switch out and we had Japeth out there specifically because he has the ability to switch out on smaller guys. So his instinct on a pump-fake is to jump for the shot, and he just went to his instincts,” Cone said.“Obviously, it wasn’t a good instinct and it wasn’t the right thing to do, but he just went to his instincts, and in those situations, you just gotta try to stay disciplined,” he added. “But it’s the last play of the game. There’s 15,000 people in the stadium and they’re screaming, and it’s Manila Clasico, so you just gotta move on from it. It’s not that big of a deal, but you just gotta move on.”ADVERTISEMENT View comments Bishop Baylon encourages faithful in Albay to help Taal evacuees LATEST STORIES MOST READlast_img read more

Former Donegal GAA star encourages children to read more about the world!

first_imgFormer Donegal GAA footballer Eamon McGee has a simple message for children during this year’s Wainfest – “read and learn about the world, ask questions and don’t be afraid to keep learning”.Wainfest starts this Saturday (October 8th) with story parties in selected libraries around the county and will continue until Saturday 15th October.Eamon McGee who officially launched this year’s Wainfest, is an avid reader and his love of books was clear for all to see when he spoke to the young children from Mrs Daly’s class from St Colmcille Boys School in Letterkenny during the launch which took place in the Central Library on Friday 23 September. He told his young audience that reading “is something that you bring with you throughout your life and there is nothing quite like getting lost in the magical world of a really good book”.“I’ve always loved reading books and comics. I started with Roal Dahl’s BFG and it just grew from there. I remember reading Beano and then moving to the Marvel comics”.Asked if he had a good imagination when he was a child, Eamon said “Yeah I had a great imagination. I was always creating wee worlds and trying to write my own fantasy stories. Think I still have a few of them at home!”Eamon believes that it is really important for children to be allowed to develop their own imaginations and to explore their own artistic endeavours. “A child without an imagination is a poorer child. You can get great ideas from reading a book and by using your own imagination you can make up our own stories and put yourself in your own adventures.”He also says that you need to help children believe in themselves if they are to fulfil their potential. “If a child sees that his peers believe in him, he will draw from that and my message is simple, read and learn about the world, ask questions and don’t be afraid to keep learning”.Eamon got a wonderful response from the boys when he asked them all to ‘do him a favour, and read one book in the next week’ and of course all the children promised to do this.Sinead McLaughlin, from the Donegal Library Service said it was great to have someone like Eamon McGee launch this year’s Wainfest. “He is such a positive role model for the children and especially for the young boys. To have someone like Eamon talk about his love of books and about how he and his team mates enjoyed reading on the bus when going to matches was brilliant. This leaves such a positive impression on the children and we are delighted to have Eamon on board this year.”Wainfest is organised by Donegal County Council’s Library Service and events run from 8th to 15th October and details can be found at www.wainfest.ie. As most events require pre-booking, early booking is advisable to avoid disappointment.
