Neal immediately knew something was wrong and pulled his car over. 15-20 yards away he saw Joe Casiuk badly wounded and losing blood fast. By quickly applying a tourniquet and calling for help, but largely because of how close behind he was, Neal is believed to have save Casiuk’s life. Back on June 23, New York State Trooper Joshua Neal was driving along I-88 in Fenton when he noticed a motorcycle next to him. After losing sight of it around a curve, Tpr. Neal saw a cloud of dust, and the bike crashed on the shoulder. Despite losing roughly a third of all of the blood in his body, Casiuk only fractured his clavicle in addition to his leg injury. Trooper Neal said he was simply doing his job, but the experience as reaffirmed his livelong passion to be a police officer. Casiuk said after recovering for four weeks in the hospital, he has a renewed sense of life and an understanding of what’s important to him. “If he wan’t there, at the time that he was with how quickly he responded, I would have been dead,” Casiuk told 12 News Tuesday. FENTON (WBNG) — Sometimes, you just happen to be in the right place at the right time.
Former Donegal manager Jim McGuinness believes Dublin should come through the replay against Mayo on Saturday night, but says it will be another bruising exchange. The All-Ireland semi-final wasn’t the greatest of spectacles in footballing terms, but both sides literally put their bodies on the line and Mayo’s comeback made it one of the most exciting games in recent years.McGuinness said it was real championship football with a hard edge and that the commitment from both sides was commendable. McGuinness found the contest intriguing but believes Mayo missed a trick by not employing Barry Moran on the edge of the square.In his weekly column with The Irish Times McGuinness offered his analysis on the match and how things may pan out in the replay on Saturday.McGuinness said, “It was championship football with a true hard edge.It may not have been a flawless game but there were some excellent passages of play and, as an occasion, it contained everything you could hope for from sport.“It was just exhilarating and the commitment from both teams was commendable. “I felt that, overall, Dublin’s game plan was superior to Mayo’s and that this was reflected on the scoreboard after an hour.“They are at a deeper level of understanding of what they want to do and of how to execute it. I thought tactically they got so much right. Their kick-out strategy was very strong – apart from the one they lost at the end of the match, which was critical.McGuiness felt Dublin lacked discipline and this was evidenced by the fact Cillian O’Connor scored 1-09 from placed balls.“The one area that I felt they were lacking was in discipline – 1-9 for O’Connor from a penalty and frees tells its own story.“I thought Dublin were excellent in transition and, as the game developed, they pushed the game out to a lead by seven. Ciaran Kilkenny was excellent in the first half and they produced scores more easily than Mayo. “They got a lot of joy from kicking long, diagonal ball into the right-hand corners. The training field was written all over their performance.McGuinness has a hunch Dublin will get over the line but wouldn’t be surprised if Mayo yet again turn logic on its head.“My hunch is that Dublin will come through but only if they face down what will be a significant Mayo challenge.“Logic suggests that Dublin have the football ability to do that. But Mayo are masters at turning logic on its head. “So who will blink first?MCGUINNESS – “MAYO ARE THE MASTERS OF TURNING LOGIC ON ITS HEAD” was last modified: September 1st, 2015 by Mark ForkerShare 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:Home-page Sportnews
