No. 20 Notre Dame frustrates Syracuse in 1-1 draw

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on September 18, 2016 at 6:57 pm Contact Byron: Kaleigh Olmsted received a pass and saw open field in front of her in the 76th minute. As she burst ahead with the ball, Syracuse’s Alana O’Neill, in an act of desperation, lunged her body out to bring Olmsted down.Olmsted jumped right up and rushed to take the following free kick. O’Neill, clearly irritated, jumped in her face. Olmsted shoved her back and yelled at her.“That’s the type of confrontation you find in the ACC,” O’Neill said. “I was frustrated with them playing quickly so I went in her face to prevent the short pass.”Syracuse was justified in its frustration. The Orange had blown chance after chance in the box throughout the second half. Despite totaling 14 shots by game’s end, SU (7-1-2, 0-0-1 Atlantic Coast) was marred by poor finishing in a 1-1 tie to No. 20 Notre Dame (5-1-3, 0-0-1).MORE COVERAGEAdvertisementThis is placeholder textCourtney Brosnan makes 6 saves in tie against Notre Damecenter_img The last time Syracuse beat or tied a ranked opponent was Sept. 22, 2013, when the Orange tied No. 18 Duke, 2-2.“Lack of composure,” head coach Phil Wheddon said. “In ACC play, you have less time and space than you think you have. We have to take shots sooner.”The Fighting Irish dominated possession for the first 20 minutes but were unable to capitalize, thanks to Courtney Brosnan. In the first eight minutes, Brosnan made three diving saves, earning applause from the crowd. She finished the game with six saves.Syracuse finally got a legitimate opportunity on a corner kick in the 33rd minute. Jessica Vigna crossed it to Stephanie Skilton, who despite facing the other way, headed the ball off the top right post. The ball bounced to Eva Gordon, who fired it into the net.But that proved to be Syracuse’s best shot on net. The Orange attack consisted of three tendencies: inaccurate corner kicks and crosses, overshooting through balls to forwards and shots in the box that sailed nowhere near goalkeeper Kaela Little.In the 53rd minute, Notre Dame capitalized on its own corner. Taylor Klawunder headed a cross toward the bottom right corner. Maddie Iozzi stretched out her leg but it narrowly went into the net.The game stayed tied entering into sudden death overtime. Right after the kickoff, Gordon sped past her defender and received a perfect pass forward from Sheridan Street.Gordon missed wide left.Brosnan, who had jumped up and down in hopes of a game-winner, fell straight to the ground in disbelief. The teams hardly had real chances on net through two periods of extra time.“We have to capitalize on the chances we do get,” Gordon said, “because in the ACC those opportunities are going to get slimmer and slimmer.” Commentslast_img read more

Powered by Firework The Indian Cricket Team has seen some of the most spectacular batsmen in the squad’s history, and the two names under Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy that can easily stand out as even the greatest of all time are undoubtedly Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. While the ‘Master Blaster’ is revered for being the greatest run machine of all time, ‘The Wall’ is praised for his sound and unique batting technique. Choosing between the two was not an easy task for former Pakistani cricketer Shoaib Akhtar, but the iconic pace bowler names Dravid as the tougher batsman to face on the pitch!Advertisement Image Courtesy: Twitter/HT PhortAlthough Shoaib Akhtar has his own YouTube channel, the former international cricketer took to the social app Helo for an interactive session with his fans. During his prime, the superstar fast bowler was famous for his rivalry with the two Men in Blue batsmen. However, it was the technical Dravid whom Akhtar felt was more of a challenge on the 22 yards than the blistering Sachin.“Dravid was more difficult to bowl than Sachin,” Akhtar revealed during the interactive session.Advertisement Although Sachin, the highest run scorer in the game was the usual nightmare for any bowler during his prime, Dravid was known for his patience and and composure on the pitch.The former right handed batsman, who has faced the most number of balls in international cricket, rightfully earned his famous nickname for being anchored against even the topmost bowlers, including Akhtar himself.Advertisement In his 16 years of international cricket, Dravid earned 164 Test and 344 ODI caps for India, scoring 13,288 and 10,889 runs in both formats respectively, and also enjoyed a short stint with Indian Premier League franchises Royal Challengers Bangalore and Rajasthan Royals.Following his retirement, the Karnataka cricket team stalwart continues to invest in the sport.

No agency devoid of massive corruption, bribery and fraud

first_imgDear Editor,There seems to be no governmental agency in Guyana that is devoid of massive corruption, bribery and fraud, which only spells doom and disaster for our beloved country, particularly with the coming of first oil in a few months.The most recent agency exposed in such transgressions is the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board (NPTAB) for which some of its operatives have been discovered sneaking around accessing tenders that they should not have, tampering with them, and as a consequence, making a complete mockery of the tender process of Guyana.Of course, such lurid goings-on at NPTAB have been an open secret for a very long time now as there has been for a while, a hullabaloo by some contractors, companies and even by the public, of the skewed manner in which only some entities and individuals are awarded contracts, many times for which they are ill-equipped and trained to do.Even worse, recordings of telephone conversations with very damning information are coming to the surface, involving claims that some senior operatives are coaching their juniors into committing perjury.So now that the cover has been blown at NPTAB and everyone is running for cover, there seems to be a sudden PR blitz coming from that office with unprecedented levels of public announcements, releases and awareness programmes in what is obviously a smokescreen intended to confuse the public about the real happenings there.The hypocrisy of a very senior official there, who in a recent statement to the press claimed that he was not a politician, is quite laughable as in the 2015 campaign season, he was very visible at all of the stops of the ‘Unity Train’ and at the campaign rallies of a certain political party, and who since the elections, has been rewarded with lucrative positions on several State boards. This is quite evident as on one hand, he is holding himself out to be a beacon of moral rectitude while on the other hand, is now alleged to be giving a heads up to junior staffers as it relates to covering up the current saga.If Guyana is to improve its rankings on international indexes on corruption, it is important that agencies such as the National Procurement and Tender Administration Board be staffed by young, competent, qualified, decent and apolitical individuals.Sincerely,Roseanne Rodgerslast_img read more

APNU/AFC Government is on a “life support machine” fighting for survival

first_imgDear Editor,Guyanese don’t have to be statisticians to spot that the recent polls conducted by the Caribbean Development Research Services (CADRES), was suspicious and fake. CADRES should publicly state who really financed that poll since it is the worst form of propaganda by the APNU/AFC coalition Government as desperation is stepping into the failed APNU/AFC camp.Several questions are exposing the Government, because if President David Granger’s approval ratings are at 94 per cent, why is the Government so afraid to go to an election? How are President David Granger’s approval ratings so high but the APNU/AFC coalition Government was completely swept away in the last LGE?If Granger’s ratings are 94 per cent then Irfan Ali’s ratings would definitely be 500 per cent since this Government is not only unpopular in the PPP/C support base but also in the APNU support base.Imagine last week President David Granger refused to announce publicly that he was coming to visit the Albion Estate in East Berbice, he actually sneaked into Berbice, afraid that the thousands of dismissed sugar workers would picket him for not attending to their cries since these severed sugar workers were left to the mercy of the Almighty God. Why did President David Granger, after four years, decide to visit workers at Albion Estate? The simple answer is that elections will be held shortly and he needs workers’ votes, sorry Granger.The analogy about diabetes that was used by President Granger on the sugar industry should be used on the Government since corruption, incompetence, mismanagement, etc is prevalent in the Government and unless Granger amputates some of the limbs that he has, the diabetes of corruption, incompetence, mismanagement etc would cause the Government to rot to death. The APNU/AFC coalition Government is presently on a “life support machine” fighting for survival.Regards,Zamal Hussainlast_img read more

High on Ice to broaden its spectrum

first_imgPhoto:  An example of what coloured ice can look like – FSJ Arts CouncilBy Jon Zacks- Advertisement – Arts advocates in Fort St. John are planning on adding a little colour to the 2011 High on Ice festival.Representatives from the Fort St. John Arts Council appeared before City Council on Tuesday night, to share their plans for the next High on Ice event, and to talk about some of the challenges faced in the 2010 event.Tara O’Donnell and Lisa Bush said High on Ice 2010 brought the biggest-yet turnout to the Energetic City, and more coverage than ever before. They say it contributed to community pride, active lifestyles, and employment in the region, as well as providing a major boost to winter tourism.Some changes the Arts Council would like to see for next time include:Advertisement · Facing the ice slides (or at least the one for small children) towards the hospitality tent, so that parents can keep an eye on their kids while huddling up to heaters and hot chocolate. · Getting funding allocated from the City earlier, so that the money will be available for cash prizes and other costs. · Providing a power supply at the front of Centennial park, to enhance the safety of carvers using power tools. · Improving lighting at Centennial Park and opening the concession at night, to give the public more opportunity to visit the festival in the evenings.O’Donnell also described how organizers plan on injecting ‘coloured ice’ into the festival in 2011. She says ‘coloured ice’ is quite a simple, but aesthetically pleasing effect. Moreover, for around $3,000, O’Donnell says organizers could provide a ‘coloured ice’ workshop to local students.The arts council is responsible for the ice and snow events at the festival, which includes bringing in the professional carvers, and organizing the various competitions. The overall budget for the Ice and Snow Event at High on Ice 2011 is projected at $116,100.last_img read more
