Syracuse attack nets 10 of team’s 11 goals in 11-10 win over Irish

first_imgWhen Syracuse has sufficient time with the ball, it’s proven that both its attacks and midfielders can find the back of the net. It’s not easy for other defenses to game plan against.“Depending on which poison the opposing team’s defense picks,” SU head coach John Desko said, “you’re going to see some games where we have a little bit of scoring from the attack and a lot from the middies and vice versa like today.”With Syracuse winning more than 50 percent of the faceoffs in a game for the first time since Feb. 16, its attack had plenty of chances Saturday and made the most of them. In the No. 9 Orange’s (5-3, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) 11-10 triumph over No. 7 Notre Dame (4-3, 2-1), the SU attack accounted for 10 of the team’s 11 goals.For Syracuse, it’s been a season in which the scoring load started mostly on the shoulders of the attacks, but has since swayed back and forth between the midfield and attacking unit.Junior Kevin Rice netted four goals — the last one proving to be the difference in the game — while Dylan Donahue and Derek Maltz registered a hat trick each. Aside from the three starting attacks, redshirt junior Nicky Galasso, part of the second-line midfield, was the only other SU player to net a goal.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“We just have a lot of threats coming in,” Rice said. “Randy (Staats) played some midfield today, which made matchup problems for them, and Derek was huge inside. I thought we had a pretty good team effort offensively.”The Fighting Irish came into the game allowing just 8.5 goals per game. The UND defense forced the Orange into committing 15 turnovers, including 10 in the second half, and denied Syracuse on four clearing attempts as SU looked to set up its attack.But after clearing, the Orange was methodical against Notre Dame’s air-tight defense.“They pack it in tight and you have to be really patient against them,” Rice said. “You can’t take that first dodge, that first look. You’ve got to work your offense.”Each starting attack scored a goal in the first quarter, and Galasso’s sidewinding rip capped off a 3-0 string for the Orange to go up 6-3 in the second frame. Maltz logged all three of his scores in the first half, the last of which put SU up by two before the buzzer.Donahue drilled a shot past UND goalie Shane Doss for a two-goal lead in the fourth quarter, but it was Rice who spearheaded Syracuse’s second-half offense.Rice notched a hat trick to extend SU’s lead to three. Then, after the Irish fought back, he buried the game-winner with two minutes left.Said Rice: “We were able to wear them down by the end of the game.” Comments Published on March 29, 2014 at 6:57 pm Contact Phil: pmdabbra@syr.edu | @PhilDAbb Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Kawhi Leonard’s camp made ‘unreasonable’ demands to Raptors, report says

first_img Paul George-to-Clippers official as Thunder GM drops subtle hint at tampering When asked whether he thought Leonard had been upfront in his negotiations, Ujiri told TSN, “I think he was.” After pausing, he added, “Kawhi was.” Still, Toronto had hoped to convince Leonard to return. Raptors officials met with Leonard and his uncle, Dennis Robertson, in Toronto on July 3. According to the TSN report, which cited unidentified sources: “Leonard and his camp — namely Uncle Dennis — asked for a lot from the Raptors in that meeting, things players don’t generally ask for in standard contract negotiations.”The report labeled those demands “unreasonable,” and noted there was no way Raptors President Masai Ujiri could have delivered on them. The NBA Finals MVP’s demands reportedly “made the Raptors wonder whether Leonard was seriously considering them at all.” Related News Kawhi Leonard officially signs with Clippers, but reportedly opts for 3-year deal Kawhi Leonard’s negotiations with the Toronto Raptors reportedly broke down when his camp made “unreasonable” demands, TSN reports .The Clippers, of course, this week signed the free agent forward to a deal reportedly for three years and $103 million. Leonard will team up with newly acquired Paul George in a suddenly loaded L.A. lineup. Masai Ujiri on Raptors losing Kawhi Leonard in free agency: ‘There’s no time to go out and cry’ Read into that pause what you will about Ujiri’s thoughts on Leonard’s camp. Whatever the intent there, the Raptors are moving on.“I know what we’re dealing with here and I appreciate what the process was,” Ujiri said. “I know free agency, I know how it works. It’s not my first rodeo. You know things are going to go up and down. This was a different kind of free agency. It was high stakes and we understood that.”As previously reported, one of the topics Leonard reportedly broached involved the possibility of Toronto acquiring George from the Thunder, although TSN notes, “a deal with Oklahoma City was never as close as some have reported.”last_img read more

MODEL GEORGIA TURNS HEADS AT DONEGAL NIGHTCLUB

first_imgTOP Irish model Georgia Salpa certainly turned heads – when she dropped into a Donegal club to say hello to fans.The ex-girlfriend of Calum Best shocked the producers of a panto show earlier this month after pulling out at the last minute. And now we know why – she had a Christmas date at Ink in Letterkenny.“I love being here and I had a fantastic night,” she declared.She wasn’t however tempted by all the male talent on offer; she went back to her room at the Station House Hotel alone.The model upset dads everywhere she pulled out of The Sleeping Beauty in Dublin, a week before it was due to open. The model was due to play the part of Queen Kardashian in the production, and her decision to leave at the last minute left panto star Alan Hughes and his husband Karl Broderick, the show’s producer, non-too pleased.In a statement issued the couple said: “Her representative informed the producers that she feels she can no longer commit to the role. The producers have already been very accommodating to Georgia in her preparation for the role, that was specially written for her, and are angered at her sudden departure, which was beyond their control.”It is the second high profile event that the former girlfriend of Calum Best has withdrawn from. She was due to take part in the charity fundraiser From Catwalk to Kilimanjaro with fellow models in October, but pulled out at the 11th hour. Her place was taken by a journalist. MODEL GEORGIA TURNS HEADS AT DONEGAL NIGHTCLUB was last modified: December 24th, 2011 by BrendaShare 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:georgia salplast_img read more
