Penalty corner goals doom No. 19 Syracuse in 2-0 loss to No. 5 Virginia

first_img Published on September 20, 2019 at 9:12 pm Contact Adam: adhillma@syr.edu | @_adamhillman Facebook Twitter Google+ As SJ Quigley unintentionally deflected a penalty corner shot over the head of goalie Sarah Sinck and into the back of the cage, two Orange defenders stood in penalty gear with their heads facing their feet.The Orange had dominated UVA in nearly every statistical category, and yet they looked up at the scoreboard and saw a one-goal deficit. Syracuse head coach Ange Bradley tried to salvage hope for the Orange by asking for the Video Assistant Referee (VAR) to review the play. The referee motioned a rectangle with his hands and jogged toward the touch screen on the sideline to review the play.“It was a blockout,” junior Carolin Hoffmann said. “Their striker blocked out our fly so we asked for it. They didn’t see it the same way.”The referee returned and pointed both fingers to the turf of J.S. Coyne Stadium, signaling the game’s first goal. UVA fans stood up, pumped their arms and cheered as a few SU fans yelled, “Obstruction” in objection to the decision.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textNo. 19 Syracuse (5-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) had outshot the Cavaliers nine to three before the goal and had controlled more possession. Yet, No. 5 UVA (6-1, 1-0) executed in two penalty corner situations, handing the Orange a 2-0 defeat. Following the first goal, SU struggled to move the ball up the field, only recording one shot in the final quarter.After the game, a few players cried as they realized a marquee victory over one of the nation’s best had slipped through their fingers. “Obviously, we’re frustrated but taking out of that game we can really see that we can play with the top teams in the nation,” Hoffmann said.In the first 43 minutes, the Orange controlled the midfield, pressing UVA to play the ball between its backs instead of up to its forwards. The Cavaliers only had three shots in the first half.Freshman Charlotte de Vries, while being shadowed by preseason All-ACC back Amber Ezechiels, tallied two shots on goal, the most of anyone on Syracuse. She used her blazing speed and dazzling stick skills to run toward the endline, creating multiple chances for SU. But Virginia goalkeeper Lauren Hausheer, who’s only allowed five goals in seven starts this year, stifled every Orange opportunity. de Vries, who leads the ACC in goals, couldn’t decipher the quick reactions of Hausheer – her dangerous shot off a penalty corner in the first half was somehow kicked away. “I thought we were holding up really well,” freshman Olivia Graham said. “I thought we all did well at staying together and fighting for what we wanted.”That sentiment flipped after the first goal. UVA held more possession, holding the ball in the SU half and continually putting Graham and senior back Claire Webb under pressure. One minute into the fourth quarter, the Cavaliers earned another penalty corner after the ball bounced off a SU player’s foot. The Orange, following the first penalty corner goal, moved Webb into a defensive position in front of goal. It didn’t matter. UVA’s Anzel Viljoen played the ball into Greer Gill. Her deflected shot fell right to Cato Geusgens, who fired a looping shot past Sinck. Graham raised her stick in the air at the last second to try and keep it out of the net. Realizing her efforts were futile, she tossed her helmet off the field in disgust as Webb called for a team huddle to rescue any remaining energy.“Do a better job better defending our shell so that we give up fewer corners,” Bradley said. “That’s the best protection for defensive penalty corner defense.”Entering a matchup with No. 2 Duke on Friday, Sept. 27, the Orange don’t have much time to fix their issues defending set pieces besides Colgate in two days. Bradley cited that film and repetition in practice are the only ways to fill the holes at the back.Still, there are signs of optimism. Thirteen days ago, SU struggled to even fire shots on goal in a disappointing 2-1 loss to unranked Cornell. The Orange had little to no answer as the Big Red double- and triple-teamed de Vries.Now, SU outshot the No. 5 team in the nation. To Hoffmann, that’s a sign of a team that has yet to reach its peak. “It’s a loss for us but we can also see that we have a lot of potential,” Hoffmann said. Commentslast_img read more

It is very possible he will not be able to complete his 6 year US Senate term because of health Issues. The Governor of kansas will appoint the person to fill out Pat Roberts US Senate term. Governor Graves chose Sheila Frahm the LT Governor of Kansas to fill Bob Doles US Senate Seat on June 11,1996 till the next election on November 5,1996. If we Elect Paul Davis as Governor and Jill Docking as LT Governor, can we take any chance of Jilll Docking being the Jr US senator from Kansas.

Davis is as much of a leftist/statist as Obama, Harry, or Hillary. If you cast your vote for Davis, or Orrman, you are in Obama’s corner. If you support either of the two and think that you are not also aiding the Obama agenda, you are an idiot. Report Reply 0 replies · active 301 weeks ago 0 Vote up Vote down Credence · 301 weeks ago Mr. Miller is entitled to his opinion, even if it is wrong. Supporting Paul Davis and his tax and spend policies goes against the very comments Mr. Miller gives for supporting Davis. Maybe Governor Brownback is a little too conservative for some, but I say that we are better off today than we ever were under the previous administration. I have personally met with Sam Brownback and discussed a number of issues and I believe he is right on track with his policies and truly wants what is best for Kansas. Paul Davis on the other hand, based on his campaign ads, is a tax and spend liberal who believes the way to prosperity can only be accomplished by increasing taxes and punishing successful companies. Unfortunately, this will lead to fewer businesses locating in Kansas and will drive more citizens to leave the state. I really don’t believe that is what Mr. Miller wants.

Tweet this comment Cancel Submit Comment Subscribe to None Replies All new comments Guest Editorial by Robert Miller — As a lifelong Republican I believe in fiscally prudent and conservative philosophies, including living within my means, saving for emergencies, investing wisely, and working hard to support my family. That’s why I’ve been so dismayed by Gov. Sam Brownback’s reckless economic “experiment.”Robert Miller· Increased Taxes: Brownback’s tax plan gave out huge tax breaks to wealthy special interests, while raising taxes on middle and lower income families. Local property taxes have gone up $300 million and sales taxes have increased $777 million. During my 26 years in the Legislature I heard hundreds of objections about property taxes and sales tax, and worked hard to enact changes to fix those problems.  I don’t recall ever hearing a complaint about the Kansas Income Tax.· Deficit Spending: Over the next five years, Kansas will collect $3.7 billion less because of the Brownback tax bills. It is estimated that total deficit spending will reach more than $1 billion in five years. At the hundreds of public meetings I held around Sumner County, people often said we should be running state government more like a business.  Kansas is now being run like a business that is failing.· Reduced Credit Rating: As a result of the reckless Brownback deficit tax and spending policies, Two independent credit agencies have downgraded the state credit rating a total of three times in the last year.· Stunted Job Growth: Brownback’s own Council of Economic Advisors recently said Kansas is last among its neighbors in almost all economic indicators – including job creation, business creation, and personal income.Sam Brownback’s policies have put Kansas on the brink of falling off a fiscal cliff. I’ll be voting for Paul Davis on Tuesday, November 4 because he shares my priorities in terms of responsibly managing our state budget, keeping taxes down for Kansas families, and creating jobs in our state.Robert Miller is a former legislator of the former 80th District of Sumner County. He has served as Kansas Speaker of the House.Follow us on Twitter.last_img read more

New partnership drives Isle of Man golf

by ,

first_img An historic new partnership is helping drive the game of golf on the Isle of Man. The men and women’s organisations on the island have come together to form Isle of Man Golf, a united campaign to grow the sport and support the eight clubs on the island. The island is only the second region of England to merge the men and women’s organisations, following Northamptonshire, although at national level both sides of the sport are now represented by England Golf, while next year will see the R&A and the Ladies Golf Union become one body. The merger of the two organisations means just one body is now responsible for the promotion and development of golf on the island, where there are more than 2,500 active club members already. However it is hoped the new partnership will grow this figure. Melanie Jansen (pictured) has been appointed IOM golf development officer to help encourage more people to take up golf and to increase club membership. Melanie is a Chartered Accountant by profession, but holds coaching qualifications in a number of sports, and has been one of the driving forces behind the Western Swimming Pool Board over the last 14 years. Daughter Breeshey is the IOM Ladies Champion and a member of the England Regional Performance Squad, while her other children, Pheric and Dollin, are also keen golfers at the Peel Juniors Section. Melanie remarked: “We are so fortunate to have eight wonderful affiliated golf courses on the Island, each playing an important role in our community and Island life. “IOM Golf is keen to work alongside and support our clubs in their future development and success by the promotion of the sport and ensuring that golf is made more accessible to all.” She added: “The days of a golf club being able to operate successfully purely based on membership are long gone and our golf clubs need to review activities in order to survive against competition from other activities or sports.” Isle of Man Golf President Geoff Skillicorn commented:  “Not only is the focus on making our better players even better through defined coaching, encouraging play in more challenging competitions, and achieving success at national and international level, but also at the start of the golfing journey in encouraging our junior golfers by working more with our schools and colleges.” Gary Jakeman is the new General Secretary. He is also the Chairman of the Island Games Association, and has recently retired from his role as ICT Manager at QEII School. The work of the development group is supported by Manx Sport & Recreation, who have identified golf as a key community sport. The organisation has revamped its website – www.isleofmangolf.im – to provide an invaluable source of information For more information contact Melanie Jansen, golf development officer for Isle of Man Golf, email: gdo@isleofmangolf.im 6 Jun 2016 New partnership drives Isle of Man golf last_img read more
