Syracuse men’s soccer ties No. 8 Clemson in national semifinal rematch

first_img Published on October 21, 2016 at 10:47 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Just like in the College Cup semifinal, neither Syracuse nor Clemson mustered a goal in 110 minutes. This time, there were no penalty kicks to determine which team advanced to the national championship.Chances were few and far between on Friday night as both sides managed just two shots on goal, but a late acrobatic save by Syracuse goalkeeper Hendrik Hilpert preserved his eighth shutout of the season in No. 6 Syracuse’s (10-3-2, 3-2-2 Atlantic Coast) scoreless draw with No. 8 Clemson (9-2-4, 3-1-3) at Historic Riggs Field in Clemson, South Carolina.“No penalties this year, which was probably good for everybody,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “These are fun games to be involved in. It’s a little bit helter-skelter. I think there probably could’ve been a little bit more quality in the 110 minutes.”SU and the Tigers are the top two teams in the ACC in terms of fouls committed, and both surpassed their season averages by committing 16 and 19, respectively. Syracuse’s Mo Adams, who has started every game thus far and scored his first-career goal against Hartford on Tuesday, will miss SU’s regular season finale due to suspension after picking up his fifth yellow card of the season.The game was scrappy, and despite Syracuse dominating possession it wasn’t able to generate the chances it has on such a consistent basis. The Orange’s lone shot on goal in regulation was a soft header by Johannes Pieles that fell gently into the hands of Clemson goalkeeper Ximo Miralles.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the second overtime period, Hilpert came well off his line to clear a ball out of bounds, which he drilled right into the Clemson bench. He sprinted back to his net and on the next sequence made a diving save with his right hand on a near-post strike from Michael Melvin.“Collectively we defended extremely well,” McIntyre said. “To come on the road to a place like this and keep a clean sheet is terrific.”Syracuse’s draw kept it behind four other teams in the ACC standings with only the top four getting a bye in the upcoming conference tournament.The only team remaining on the Orange’s regular season schedule is No. 2 Wake Forest. Against the other four top-15 teams in the ACC the Orange has played, Syracuse has one goal combined.“It’s so difficult to get points in this league,” McIntyre said. “…I know that we have goals in this team.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Syracuse’s offense carries it to doubleheader victories against Pittsburgh

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on April 14, 2017 at 9:25 pm Contact Josh: jlschafe@syr.edu | @Schafer_44 Syracuse (23-15, 5-9 Atlantic Coast) scored eight runs in each of its games against Pittsburgh (21-18, 4-13) on Friday, both resulting in wins. SU won 8-0 in the first game and 8-1 in the second game, and has now scored five or more runs in five straight games.In game one, Syracuse made quick work of Pittsburgh, ending the game an inning early due to the mercy rule.

Two batters later, Hannah Dossett sent the ball back to left field for a double, which scored three runners. Dossett’s three RBI’s were a team high for SU while Alicia Hansen led the team in hits going 4-5 from the plate.As Syracuse racked up ten hits, freshman left-hander Alexa Romero only allowed Pittsburgh four. She pitched a complete game shutout, striking out 12 out of the 25 batters she faced.Game two went the full seven innings but the result was similar. Syracuse smacked 14 hits while Pittsburgh only mustered two. In the fifth, Jessica Hesse sent one over the fence in left for a three-run shot. In the next inning, Cain hit a three-run bomb of her own over the center field wall. Seven runs for Syracuse in the fourth, fifth and sixth innings sealed the gameSyracuse’s pitching matched the hitting just like in game one. AnnaMarie Gatti started the game, followed by Sydney O’Hara, before Romero came in to close. The trio combined for 12 strikeouts with O’Hara earning the win and Romero the save.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse closes out the three-game series at Pittsburgh on Saturday at 12pm.

Rose and Teague both have missed significant time with injuries recently.Karl-Anthony Towns had 24 points and 10 rebounds for Minnesota, while Dario Saric had 19 points.

The Clippers came in leading the league in bench scoring at 51.6 points per game.Minnesota had lost its previous four games and six of its previous seven while struggling with injuries at the point guard position. On Monday night, the Timberwolves had both Rose and Teague on the court at the same time for the first time since Jan. 20 against the Phoenix Suns.Teague returned to the lineup Friday in New Orleans. He had missed the previous eight games with soreness in his left foot. Rose played Monday after missing six of the previous seven games with soreness in his right ankle. For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory center_img Clippers vs. Mavericks Game 5 playoff updates from NBA beat reporters The Timberwolves had played nine games without having both Teague and Rose available.Neither team led by more than eight points in the first half. The Timberwolves closed the half on a 10-2 run to take a 63-55 lead into the locker room. Rose scored 12 of his 22 points in the first half, including a difficult layup just before the halftime buzzer.Minnesota then scored the first 10 points of the third quarter to open a double-figure lead. The Timberwolves later led by as many as 23 points before the Clippers cut the deficit to four. Minnesota held on against a Clippers team that has rallied from 20 or more points down on the road three times this month.“We were awful defensively,” Clippers coach Doc Rivers said. “The game was 48 minutes of single mistakes. We made so many mistakes.”Williams became just the seventh reserve in NBA history to score 45 points, and the first since J.R. Smith did it for Denver in a 118-98 victory on April 13, 2009, according to basketball-reference.com.“He was great,” Rivers said. “Had too many turnovers, though.”TEAM-FIRST TAJSaunders moved Saric into the starting lineup Monday. His start came at the expense of veteran forward Taj Gibson, a former USC standout who willingly moved into a reserve role. Both Saunders and Saric were full of praise for Gibson, who scored 14 points off the bench while playing both power forward and center.Related Articles “Lucky for me, I’ve got a guy like Taj Gibson on my team,” Timberwolves interim coach Ryan Saunders said. “I can’t say enough about him. I brought him the idea. It was actually yesterday. And he was all for it. It just shows his professionalism in the fact that he has 14 points off the bench playing both the 4 and the 5. You can’t say enough about him.”TIP-INSClippers: Williams scored a team-high 11 points in the first half and made only one field goal. His first nine points came from the free-throw line, where he was 9 for 9. Coach Doc Rivers remains close friends with former Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau, who was fired on Jan. 6. “We talk a lot,” Rivers said. “I tried to get him today a lot to get the scouting report, but he wouldn’t give it to me.” … The Clippers concluded a 12-day, six-game trip that will cover 6,659 miles. It’s the fifth-longest trip in the NBA this season. … Forward Wilson Chandler (right quad strain) and forward Luc Mbah a Moute (sore left knee) were sidelined.Timberwolves: Luol Deng started in Wiggins’ place. It was Deng’s first start since Oct. 19, 2017, the first game of last season, when he was a member of the Lakers. That was his only appearance of the season. … The Timberwolves were still without forward Robert Covington (bone bruise in right knee) and guard Tyus Jones (sprained left ankle). … Guard Isaiah Canaan was signed to a second 10-day contract Sunday.UP NEXTThe Clippers host Phoenix on Wednesday.

New Shopping Center Coming to Newman Springs Road

first_imgBy John BurtonSHREWSBURY – Development of a new shopping center on the former site of Memory Lanes by the firm behind The Grove promises to please Two River shoppers within a month.“That’s what I always try to do,” with these projects, said Metrovation/Terranomics Chris Cole. “Create an interesting mix of tenants for the customer.”Speaking of the 89 Newman Springs Road location, Metrovation’s retail and commercial site is in the final stages of construction and Cole said his firm is looking to fill the relatively small site with the type of businesses that would appeal to the Two-River-area shopper. The site is expected to have three to four businesses, with one tenant already signed, and construction estimated to be finished within the month, according to Cole.Metrovation/Terranomics is a Seattle, Washington-based firm behind The Grove and Grove West shopping centers on Broad Street/Highway 35, in Shrewsbury, and the Brook 35 and West shopping centers, Sea Girt, and is a partner in the large-scale residential and commercial project West Side Lofts, completing construction on the west side of Red Bank.The approximately 48,825 square-foot lot, on the southern side of Newman Springs Road/County Road 520, a short distance from the Grove and Grove West and about a mile from downtown Red Bank, had been the home to Memory Lane Bowling until it was destroyed by fire in June 2009 with Metrovation purchasing the site in 2013.Cole regularly drives along Newman Springs Road and when the property became available he “thought it was a good location for another retail spot.”Platypus, a home furnishings store, has closed its Grove shop and will relocate to 89 Newman Springs Road. “They wanted to stay in this market,” Cole said, believing the move is “a logical place for them.”The development has been approved and can accommodate up to a 1,500 square-foot restaurant, and Metrovation is continuing to secure an appropriate eatery for the site. In addition, the firm is in negotiations with a mix of national, regional and independent retailers about taking the additional available spaces.“We’re trying to figure what the right mix of it is,” for the shopping center, he said.And that’s the strategy for Metrovation, he explained: “A certain synergy between the tenants,” and businesses that would appeal to area shoppers. “I think the Grove has a little bit for everyone,” Cole said, “and I think this one will as well.”He expected the shopping center will be fully leased by the end of spring.last_img read more

Cook Islands urges PGA’s to maintain Mini Games

first_imgCISNOC Secretary General Robert Graham told members of the Pacific Games Council (PGC) that his country would not be able to host Pacific Games because it has no capacity to host the games.“We won’t be able to host a Pacific Games – never. We cannot it’s too big for us,” he said.“About 12 of us members that will only probably host Pacific Mini Games,” he said.Graham said if the PGC changes the Mini to Youth Games it won’t get the support from the government.“If we were to make it a Youth Games I don’t think I will get 100 percent support from my government. If we say Pacific Games, they look at Pacific – doesn’t matter if it’s a mini Games. If we say Pacific our government will say yes we gonna help you.“2009 was proof, today we have legacy, and we have a gymnasium that in some of Australia, NZ cities suburbs can’t beat. You observe our islands facilities its ‘wow’, that’s a legacy why because we host the mini games and get support from our Cook Islands people and  from our government because its Pacific Mini Games not Youth Games.“We travel overseas for Oceania championships to participate in Youth Games, under, 18, under 20,” he stressed.Graham emphasized the need for Pacific Mini Games to be retained.  “For me I just hope that my brothers and sisters support that we maintain that Pacific Mini games because it gives us smaller countries a chance to host you guys- brothers and sisters to us. Probably maybe not so long distant future we gonna put another bid again.“Please let’s take a really long look at these because it’s disadvantaging us the smaller PGAs,” he said.PGC President Vidhya Lakhan assured members the concerns raised by the Cook Islands will be taken into consideration by the chairman of the Sports Committee.last_img read more
