Syracuse topples No. 5 Louisville for 3rd top-5 win of the year

first_img Published on November 2, 2019 at 3:34 pm Contact Adam: [email protected] | @_adamhillman As Chiara Gutsche knocked the ball away from a Louisville forward, multiple Louisville defenders stood in front of her, but that didn’t matter. She sprinted past two, pushed the ball by another and spun away from the last. She fired a pass to a sprinting Carolin Hoffmann who was in on goal.The junior tapped the ball in as No. 14 Syracuse (12-5, 3-3 Atlantic Coast) escaped No. 5 Louisville (14-4, 3-3) with a 2-1 win in overtime, its third top-5 win of the season. After a slow first half, the Orange crushed the Cardinals in the second, eventually finding the winner from Hoffmann in overtime.Syracuse fell behind in the first half after Louisville knocked in a penalty corner. After goalkeeper Sarah Sinck deflected away a shot with her pad, the ball rolled to the right of the cage. Sophomore Laura Graziosi dove with her stick extended to try to push it away but Louisville’s Biz Allgeier got there first, tapping the ball into the goal. Following that late second quarter goal – and for most of the first half – SU struggled to mount pressure, totaling only one shot and no penalty corners in the first 30 minutes. That changed after the half. Syracuse’s press forced more turnovers, leading to more chances and two shots in the third quarter. One of those came from Hoffmann. Gutsche danced into the circle and fired a pass to the German-born midfielder, who slotted home the game’s tying goal, Hoffmann’s fourth of the season. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe offense’s second half improvements coincided with stifling defense. Backs Claire Webb and Olivia Graham poked away pass-after-pass and stepped in front of various opportunities for the Cardinals. When Louisville’s Bethany Russ – who has nine goals on the year – tried to fire away shots, she often couldn’t find space. Orange sticks pestered Louisville and sent the ball back down the field toward SU forwards. Once overtime came, the Orange were in full control. They had stopped the momentum Louisville had in the first half. All they needed was a moment of brilliance of Gutsche. Entering a rematch with the Cardinals in the first round of the ACC tournament on Thursday, Nov. 7, Syracuse is well-positioned to make the NCAA tournament. No. 8 in RPI before traveling to Kentucky and an overtime win over the No. 5 team should alleviate any concerns.  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

A Paddle Wheeler Called The Navesink Queen Is On Its Way

first_imgBecausepaddle wheelers are not fast boats, the 120-mile trip from the Cape May area toAtlantic Highlands will take 19 hours. Coincidentally,the paddle wheeler then known as the Elizabeth Ferry was built in the sameplace the Schades’ Mariner was constructed: Deltaville, Virginia. Six weeksafter he made his bid, Schade learned he’d become the proud owner of a biggerboat. This article was first published in the May 23-29, 2019 print edition of The Two River Times. Now, thisCinderella of the water ways is being reborn as the Navesink Queen, undergoinga transformation that includes adding bathrooms (they were not needed for shortcrossings), bench seats, picnic tables and other enhancements. “We’re going tofine-tune the furniture,” he said. He won’t say what he paid for the paddle wheeler, but it was far less than the $185,000 and change he thought was the winning bid. As it turned out, Schade said, that number was a bidder ID number, not the bid itself. “You haveto do the Coast Guard inspections. You have to get approvals. Once we get everythingready, we’ll probably do a friends and family cruise, and then later we’ll havean open house celebration cruise and give short boat rides around the river.” “A few of my friends had said, ‘Why don’t you get a paddle wheeler?’ ” Schade recalled. When he happened upon the notice in Boats and Harbors of a paddle wheeler up for auction, he and his wife decided to put in a bid. When he saw the numbers on the bidding site, he assumed he’d been outbid. Then he got the call saying he had won. They’regoing to need a bigger boat. But theMariner’s maximum capacity is 40 people. With the popularity of their cruisebusiness growing every year, the Schades decided the time was right to, well,get a bigger boat. Once itsettles in to its home berth in Atlantic Highlands, work on the interior willcontinue. When all the work is done, the boat will need to pass its U.S. CoastGuard inspection before it can begin taking passengers out on the water. As they’ve done on the Mariner for many years, the Schades will be happy to recommend musicians for clients wanting to charter the paddle wheeler. They’ll also offer live music cruises on the Navesink Queen as they do on the Mariner. The Schades are also hoping to acquire a second liquor license (the Mariner already has one) for the boat to accommodate parties and other special events. Before its sale, the boat was owned by Hampton Roads Transit, making 30-minute ferry trips across the Elizabeth River in Virginia. It was an unglamorous occupation. He put in a call to Hampton Roads Transit to see what kind of shape the boat was in. “Is it running?” he asked. “Well, it was yesterday,” they told him. “It was well-maintained, but not really loved,” Schade said. And best of all, there’s no need to worry about sharks. This Saturday the boat will make the journey from Yank’s Landing down by Cape May, where the Schades have been working on it since last January, to the Atlantic Highlands marina. “It needed lots of paint and cleaning, Schade said. The Schades have been operating their cruise and charter business on the river since 2004, offering sunset cruises, music and dance cruises, mansion tours and fireworks excursions aboard their wooden boat, the Mariner. Their boat is also available for charter for group get-togethers and special celebrations. Their cruises are all about the fun. “We don’t do fishing,” Schade said. The newvessel will have top deck passenger space as well as enclosed passenger spaceon the main deck, which will be heated for fall cruising. The Schades are alsoinstalling a Bluetooth sound system so passengers can play their own party mix. Capt. Dan Schade and his wife Vicky have been operating pleasure cruises here since 2004. The Navesink Queen will soon join their wooden boat, the Mariner on the Shrewsbury and Navesink. Photo courtesy Classic Boat Rides Thecouple named the new paddle wheeler in honor of the Navesink River and also intribute to Vicky’s mother. “My wife is from England, so the queen thing kind ofcame in,” Schade said. TheNavesink Queen can carry 100 people, making it possible for customers to booklarger celebrations on the boat. For Capt. Dan Schade and his wife Vicky, owners of Classic Boat Rides, that legendary line from the movie “Jaws” pretty much sums up why they decided to bid on a paddle wheeler that the captain had seen for sale in Boats and Harbors magazine. last_img read more

Leeds boss Warnock tells Hughes to ‘get own house in order’

first_imgLeeds United boss Neil Warnock has taken another swipe at his former club, insisting Mark Hughes is wrong to suggest some of QPR’s problems are down to the previous management.Warnock, who was replaced by the Welshman at Loftus Road in January, last week declared that Rangers had ‘lost part of their soul’ because of the number of foreign players signed by Hughes.And in another dig at his successor, Warnock told talkSPORT: “There are quotes coming out sometimes from the current manager and I don’t accept it.“’We’re trying to get away from last year’ – but I bet they wish they were [in the same position as] last year this time.“I think people should just look after their own house, put their own house in order.“I thought we had a great dressing room spirit and you probably have to look at that and think ‘Have they got one now?’”See also:Leeds boss Warnock has dig at 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 Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

And despite some claiming he dived, Salah was cleared of any wrongdoing.However, Kitson wrote for The Sun: “The truth is that Salah falling over at Anfield against Newcastle with Liverpool top of the league and already winning the match, is the easiest decision any referee can make.“It’s cheating and I don’t recognise it as part of the game that I love.“Unfortunately, the rewards in football are such that many players feel no shame in throwing themselves to the floor and there is absolutely no doubt the biggest players in the biggest teams are favoured by most teams.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

Syracuse Walk-On Carter Sanderson: Uncalled Travel At End Of SU-Pitt Game “A Joke”

first_imgPitt not called for travel late in game vs. Syracuse.Vine/Brian ShearerThe end of Pitt’s 65-61 win over Syracuse at the Carrier Dome wasn’t without some controversy late. Syracuse fans online are livid over a blatant travel by Pitt guard James Robinson that went uncalled, with just seconds left in the game. Apparently walk-on Carter Sanderson feels the same way. He voice his discontent about the play on Twitter.You can’t be serious, right? A No call? What a joke.— Carter Sanderson (@TheCarter3_) February 21, 2015The call is very bad, but we bet someone will remind SU’s players to keep their criticism of the refs off of social media. Even Jim Boeheim censored himself after the game.Boeheim declines to comment on the last call. “We’re not allowed to talk about that.”— Phil D’Abbraccio (@PhilDAbb) February 21, 2015Pitt is 18-10 after the big road win.last_img read more

Ohio State mens basketball finishes off season sweep of Rutgers 7969

OSU sophomore forward Keita Bates-Diop (33) during a game against Rutgers on Jan. 13 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo EditorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team has been a mystery wrapped in a riddle for much of the season.It has been nearly impossible to get any kind of gauge on what kind of team the Buckeyes are, to learn if the team that has shown itself thus far in 2015-16 is underperforming, lacking talent, lacking experience or some combination of the three.One thing has become abundantly clear, however: OSU is far from the worst team in the Big Ten. After beating Rutgers, which is still winless in conference games this season, by a combined 38 points in their two meetings, it is clear that the Buckeyes have placed themselves well above the basement of the conference.Their opponent on Saturday, however, might want to be on the lookout for flooding after heavy rainfall.The Buckeyes (16-10, 8-5) handled the Scarlet Knights (6-19, 0-12) on their home floor in Piscataway, New Jersey, on Saturday by a score of 79-69 in a game that was never really in question. That contest came a month to the day since OSU handled Rutgers in Columbus 94-68.A pair of sophomore forwards in Keita Bates-Diop and Jae’Sean Tate were major contributors in the game for the Buckeyes, with a double-double each. Bates-Diop scored 24 points on 10-of-16 shooting and had 14 rebounds, while Tate added 22 points and 13 rebounds. Redshirt sophomore guard Kam Williams was also big, scoring 19 points off the bench, including 12 in the second half.The Buckeyes did not get off to a tremendous start shooting the ball, but they really didn’t need to, as Rutgers started the game shooting a grotesque 3-of-20 — which included making its first shot of the game 22 seconds in.When all was said and done on the first 10 minutes of the game, the Buckeyes held a 20-6 lead, shooting 8-of-18. That effort was led by Bates-Diop, who scored a quick 10 points, including a pair of 3-pointers in quick succession.An extended 13-0 spurt by Rutgers made a dent in the lopsided score, cutting it to 22-19, but the Scarlet and Gray snapped their lengthy scoreless drought with a jump shot by Bates-Diop. That was followed up on the next possession with a layup by Tate to bring the lead back up to seven points.The visitors were then able to jump their lead back up as high as 14 points en route to a 35-26 halftime margin.Bates-Diop led all first-half scorers with 14 points on 6-of-9 shooting, while the Scarlet Knights countered with freshman guard Corey Sanders’ 13. Williams contributed seven points while Tate had six, but junior forward Marc Loving continued his extended period of poor play with zero points, four missed shots, a turnover and a few defensive lapses throughout the opening 20 minutes.The opening minutes of the second half featured much more efficient scoring for the Buckeyes, who put nine points on the scoreboard in the first four minutes of the stanza. That enabled them to take control of the game, holding onto a comfortable lead throughout the half that never got smaller than seven points.Twice when the home team threatened to get the deficit back down to single digits, Williams knocked down a shot from outside to take the crowd out of it. The Scarlet Knights finally did get it back there with a 9-0 run midway through the half, but, once again, Williams dropped in a shot from the outside to move the momentum back toward the Scarlet and Gray.Eventually, the Buckeyes’ 61.5 percent shooting mark in the second half was too much for Rutgers to ever mount a real comeback, sealing OSU’s 17th victory of the year, with five contests left on the regular-season schedule.OSU freshman guard JaQuan Lyle, who had the strongest all-around performance of his young college career with a triple-double in the teams’ first matchup, was unable to replicate the dominant performance. He finished with four points, three rebounds and five assists, and played just eight minutes in the second half.Loving was also absent for much of the second half after struggling while on the court. He was on the court for just five of the final 20 minutes and failed to score a point. Sanders was the Scarlet Knights’ leading scorer with 23 points.One very unsatisfactory statistic for OSU coach Thad Matta was the turnover column, where his team coughed the ball up 19 times to Rutgers’ 11.A trip back home is next in the cards for the Buckeyes, as they are scheduled to take on Michigan on Tuesday. Tip-off is scheduled for 7 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Virginia Tech transfer Trevor Thompson added to Ohio State mens basketball roster

Trevor Thompson (right) talks with OSU men’s basketball coach Thad Matta during the 2014 Spring Game April 12 at Ohio Stadium. Thompson announced his decision to transfer to Ohio State April 13.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorSeniors Aaron Craft and Lenzelle Smith Jr. might be gone, along with junior LaQuinton Ross and sophomore Amedeo Della Valle, but Ohio State men’s basketball coach Thad Matta is not wasting any time filling those vacancies.After announcing that former-Temple redshirt-junior forward Anthony Lee would transfer to Ohio State last month, Matta has secured another inside presence in Trevor Thompson.Thompson, who spent his freshman season with Virginia Tech, can start playing for the Buckeyes beginning in 2015-16 after sitting out for a season per NCAA transfer rules.Thompson tweeted his excitement in joining the Buckeyes on April 13, a day after attending the 2014 Spring Game at Ohio Stadium.“Well it’s official I’m a Ohio State Buckeye Show Me Love #BuckEyeNation !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” Thompson tweeted from his personal account, @TrevBallinTrey2, at 1:29 p.m. April 13.During 2013-14, Thompson started 11 times for Virginia Tech, averaging five points and 4.7 rebounds per game.“Trevor has proven he is capable of competing at our level,” Matta said in an OSU press release. “He will be a very athletic big man for us. We are looking forward to having Trevor in our program.”Last season, OSU finished ninth in the Big Ten in rebounding margin, only grabbing 0.3 more boards per game than their opponents, and the Buckeyes are likely to benefit from Thompson’s ability on the glass.With the Buckeyes’ top two centers from last season, juniors Trey McDonald and Amir Williams, entering their final year of eligibility next year, Thompson is set to join David Bell, a member of the 2014 recruiting class, as one of only two centers on the roster. read more
