Syracuse controls possession in 20-2 win over Binghamton

first_imgTwo Binghamton defenders bracketed senior Vanessa Costantino with their sticks extended as she readied herself for the free position. As soon as Costantino took her first step forward, the Bearcat defenders exploded, edging her out and blocking her lane to the net.Except, Costantino had passed.Redshirt senior Cara Quimby collected Costantino’s lob with ease, and with the defenders caught off guard, Quimby fired a bounce-shot into the left corner of the net to make it 11-0.“We talked about making one more pass if somebody’s open,” Quimby said. “A couple times, a bunch of girls made another pass if somebody else had a better chance to score.”Sunday night in the Orange’s 20-2 win over Binghamton (0-2), the key was making that extra pass. It allowed the Orange (3-1) to control possession — so much so that it took Binghamton 37 minutes to register its first shot. That dominance stemmed from SU’s accurate, smart passing, paired with creativity on the offensive side of the ball.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFor the first 38 minutes of the game when the Bearcats couldn’t register a shot, the ball rarely ventured into SU’s half. That was largely due to Syracuse’s success on the draw, where Syracuse won 18 draw controls compared to Binghamton’s four. The Orange controlled possession so much that with 11 minutes left in the first half, goalie Asa Goldstock was watching the game on the big screen behind her net.“We were dialed in and ready to play,” head coach Gary Gait said. “I can’t ever remember a time looking up, walking into halftime and seeing zero shots on goal, or zero shots.”Midway through the first half, Mary Rahal collected a pass and sprinted into the 8-meter arc. When the pressure arrived from the Bearcats defender, she feinted right and then made a sharp cut to the left, bouncing her shot off the turf and past the goalie to push SU’s lead to 9-0.Like Rahal, Emily Hawryschuk showed her creativity and versatility in her six-goal performance. On one instance, Hawryschuk was running from the left side of the 8-meter arc toward the middle of the field when she came to a halt after reaching the top of the arc. The Binghamton defense thought she was going to flip it to a teammate on a crossing route. Instead, Hawryschuk kept it, nutmegging the goalie with her bounce-shot.“From the beginning, I asked the team to make that extra pass, communicate better, let the player know you’re open,” Gait said. “I thought they did a much better job today.”Hawryschuk also scored on a sidearm shot and from a free position, where she elected to run it in instead of shooting immediately. Each of her goals was vastly different — the only thing Hawryschuk was missing was a behind-the-back goal, which teammate Morgan Alexander did in the first half.Toward the end of the first half, Megan Carney collected the ball at the 15-yard line, and with no pressure, she drove towards the net. Five Binghamton defenders stood still, ball-watching as Carney completed her hat-trick. She would finish the game with four goals and an assist.Because of the lopsided possession, SU’s defense didn’t have much work to do. They found success in getting numbers back and shifting back and forth as the ball moved. Late in the second half, the defensive unit did that until the shot clock ran out and the Binghamton attack was forced to fire a wild shot that landed way over the net.In the second half, Sarah Cooper even felt confident enough to let the Binghamton attack wander 20 yards away from her when the play was on the other end of the field. By then, though, the Orange were leading 15-0.The Bearcats’ defensive efforts clearly tailed off by the end of the first frame. Quimby’s second goal came one play later after Carney’s as Quimby ran straight to the top of the crease on the free position for one of the easiest goals of the game.Saturday against No. 3 Northwestern, the Orange will face one of the most explosive offenses in the country, a stark contrast from Sunday’s matchup with Binghamton.“It’s such a different level when we head to Evanston,” Gait said. “(Today’s game) does carry over, and that’s what we’re going to focus on. It’s going to be about execution.” Comments Published on February 17, 2020 at 12:10 am Contact Roshan: [email protected] | @Roshan_f16 Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more


A Remarkable 100 Years

first_imgBy Torri SingerSHREWSBURY – A high-heel wearing, bridge playing, French reading, convertible driving Carlotta Niles turned 100 years old on Monday, May 27, and it was quite the party.Niles celebrated her birthday with friends and four generations of family, including six grandchildren and 10 great-grandchildren. The party was held at one of her favorite establishments, the New Jersey Bridge Club in West Long Branch.The essentials for such a grand birthday? Cake, champagne, great company and, of course, the magnificent Niles.Carlotta Niles, of Shrewsbury, recently celebrated her 100th birthday.It is not so much the number of years this birthday signifies but rather the life that has been built within those years that makes Niles a fascinating woman. She is vibrant and engaging with a high sense of fashion. “Oh I love big high heels, they’re wonderful,” she said, smiling with her perfectly applied red lipstick and sporting what she would consider modest 3-inch kitten heels. “I’ve always worn heels, now they’ve talked me into these little things.”At 100, Niles hasn’t missed a beat and is extremely active, regularly driving herself to the New Jersey Bridge Club to improve her game with friends; it’s one of her greatest passions and is being nurtured by her bridge instructor.Though many would agree turning 100 is a huge accomplishment in itself, hitting this birthday milestone is just one triumph among many for this unique woman. Her life is full of pause-worthy events from hot-air ballooning – nine times in seven countries – to globetrotting well into her 90s. She has visited every continent except for Antarctica and Australia. St. Petersburg, Rus­sia, is the top destination in her book. Niles said it is “simply so beautiful,” and has visited half a dozen times.Niles loves traveling. “Per­haps if you could travel, you should,” she advises. “It’s broadening … You always discover something that you didn’t know was there before.”One notable trip she took with a granddaughter was a hot-air balloon expedition in Turkey where she recalled playing tennis with banged up rackets and one tennis ball that required a lot of chasing. “That was a real hoot!” Niles laughed. A longtime lover of the sport, she played team tennis at the Seabright Lawn and Tennis Club and platform tennis at the Deal Golf Club up until a few years ago.Niles has had her fair share of raised eyebrows around the world when she told people she lives in New Jersey. “People very often get, you know, with their noses turned up at the mention of New Jersey,” said Niles, turning up her nose with a slight wave of her hand. She loves the Jersey Shore and thinks that the location – close enough to the beach and also to one of her favorite spots, New York City – is ideal.Niles prides herself in being up-to-date on the latest from art galleries and plays to museums. Until recently she made a ritual of taking the train every Wednesday to visit the Metro­politan Museum of Art and then catching a matinee at a theater – by herself.Niles’ point of view on life is straightforward and classic, just like she is. “You’ve got to march along and do the best you can. You shouldn’t upset people with your problems – they’ve got problems of their own!”A once aspiring actress and daughter of silent film star June Elvidge, Niles’ history is filled with abundant captivating details that she speaks about with nonchalance.Her father died when she was just an infant and she was raised by her grandmother who, Niles said, was, “very strict” but for whom she is extremely thankful. For a brief time Niles attended Le Conte School, which was called the “School of the Stars,“ while living in Hollywood with her mother, but ultimately return­ed to her New Jersey roots to graduate from Long Branch High School in 1930 and wed the love of her life soon after.She married in September 1931 at age 18 after years of being courted by her husband Jonathan Niles, a reporter for a local newspaper who went on to work for the Wall Street Journal. The couple settled in Red Bank.In 1935 they built their Shrewsbury home where Niles still lives today. One of her fondest spots in the world, it has a pristinely manicured garden she designed with inspiration from her many trips to France. It is the house she has walked into for more than 75 years, raised three children and returned home to from trips around the world.Niles remembers going to see Queen Elizabeth when she visited New Jersey in the summer of 1939. “My son was so excited to meet the royal family he ran all the way to the Red Bank train station and stubbed his toe!” she said.Niles has witnessed much change and history. She was 16 when the stock market crashed to begin the Great Depression. At 26, World War II began and at age 56, Neil Armstrong landed on the moon. She was 78 when the World Wide Web was invented and she is still going strong at 100.She is a woman who believes that continuing to expand knowledge is a vital element of life. “I do believe in learning,” said Niles, who regularly visits the library to pick up the latest on the best-seller’s list.Niles recognizes that she is distinct in her activity level; “so many older people close down their lives,” she said. “You’ve got to try and do something that interests you … and you mustn’t be grumpy. You must play your part and do your share!”Wise words from a woman with a century of experience to rely upon.last_img read more


Chelsea have the potential to challenge the big two this season

first_imgChelsea have shown some promise in the early games under Frank Lampard but the bookmakers would have you believe the Blues are not capable of mounting a serious challenge for the Premier League title this season.Liverpool and defending champions Manchester City are still regarded as the division’s two stand-out teams – and that’s with some justification given the quality of their attacking football.The odds found at websites like Mighty Tips highlight that City and Liverpool are much fancied to battle it out in another two-horse race for the top prize.While Chelsea are not among the favourites for the title, they are certainly favourites for this weekend’s game at Wolves despite the Midlands side establishing themselves as a force to be reckoned with since coming up to the top flight.But could Chelsea be decent dark horses for silverware this season – perhaps in the Champions League, which begins next week?Attacking abilityThere are certainly signs that they are building a team with serious attacking ability – and that’s despite the current shortage of attacking options and the summer departure of Eden Hazard to Real Madrid.After a difficult start, Tammy Abraham has been in superb form in recent matches, suggesting he is capable of justifying Lampard’s faith in him and being the goalscorer Chelsea need up front.David McIntyre | With Willian and Pedro on their way back to fitness, new arrival Christian Pulisic finding his feet at Stamford Bridge and Callum Hudson-Odoi recovering from an Achilles injury, Chelsea have attacking players capable of giving any team problems.Defence can improveIt’s at the other end of the pitch where Chelsea have looked vulnerable – but that might be about to change.Kurt Zouma and Andreas Christensen have seemed vulnerable at the heart of the defence, but the imminent return of Antonio Rudiger could make all the difference. So too could the defensive midfield presence of N’Golo Kante, who has struggled with knee and ankle problems but is expected to be available after the international break.January signings?Lampard has of course been restricted by a transfer ban – but again Chelsea’s worries here might only be temporary.Reports have suggested that the club are increasingly confident that their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport will be successful, paving the way for Lampard to make signings when the transfer window opens again in January.If Lampard is able to bring in a striker to complement Abraham and perhaps get an experienced defender in to shore up that leaky defence, Chelsea could well upset the odds this season.

Growing hazelnuts spells a sweet deal for South Africa’s export market

first_img7 October 2014Just after more than 100 South African and Italian commerce and policy leaders met in Cape Town at the South Africa-Italy Summit, Italian company Ferrero Group, which produces well-known brands Nutella, Kinder and Tic Tacs, is quietly consolidating its operations in the country.Ferrero Group’s special advisor Zola Skweyiya says Africa’s first ever hazelnut factory has the potential to create large-scale jobs and boost local exports. Currently, the luxury confectionary group employs about 500 people at its Gauteng operations.The family-owned company, whose turnover exceeded €7.2-billion in the 2010-11 financial year, opened its 9000m² production facility in Walkerville, Gauteng, in June 2009.“In KwaZulu-Natal,’ Skweyiya says, “the plant will be bigger but the [hazelnut] trees are still growing.“If it is found that they are thriving in that area, they will plant more hazelnuts and we will be able to use those hazelnuts to export them to other parts of Africa,’ he said. Skweyiya was speaking at the South Africa-Italy economic summit organised by The European House-Ambrosetti, an international policy and commerce think tank. Skweyiya said construction on the plant in KwaZulu-Natal commenced about five years ago.“There are no hazelnuts in Africa. It is the first time they are being planted on the African continent. So it creates a new adventure for production in Southern Africa and it creates more [local jobs].’In 2013, Tommaso Degregorio, who manages Ferrero trials in SA spoke to local agriculture magazine Farmer’s Weekly, saying “We think there are good reasons to invest in hazelnuts. It’s an attractive long-term investment, it’s something different, and it requires a reduced amount of work compared to crops like cherries. Nuts can also be stored for a long period and can be transported without any problem.’South Africa competes against other southern hemisphere countries such as Chile, Argentina, New Zealand and Australia to produce hazelnuts. Climatic conditions in Chile especially are similar to those in South Africa. The company’s Chile operations have been operating for 20 years; “Chile is now a strong and modern hazelnut market. That is what we would like to replicate in SA,’ said Degregorio.Writing in the International TradeProbe, economist Asanda Languza said South Africa has huge potential for hazelnut production. “The production of hazelnuts has an added advantage because it has counter seasonality from the northern hemisphere, which produces in September. South Africa could sell hazels between March and April.’Trade between Italy and South AfricaBilateral trade between South Africa and Italy was worth around €3.5-billion (R51.5- billion) in 2013. The South Africa-Italy Summit, organised with the help of the Italian and South African embassies, EXPO 2015 and the Black Business Council, under the theme Building Communities of Leaders for Growing their Enterprises, aimed to further bolster bilateral business and economic ties between the two countries.Source: SAnews.govand SAinfo reporterlast_img read more


Open Source Gaming FTW: The Success of the Humble Indie Bundle

first_imgTop Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Market A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Tags:#Analysis#start Earlier this month, a group of indie game developers announced the “Humble Indie Bundle,” a pay-what-you-want campaign in which donations netted you the download of five video games (for Windows, Mac, and Linux) with the option of earmarking part of your donation to Child’s Play or EFF. The games included 2D Boy’s World of Goo, Frictional’s Penumbra Overture, bit-Blot’s Aquaria, Wolfire’s Lugaru HD, Machinarium’s Samarost 2 and Cryptic Sea’s Gish.The “Humble Indie Bundle” was wildly successful, with almost 140,000 contributors shelling out over $1.2 million, over 30% of which was allocated to the charities. And in an act of “giving back,” the developers of Penunbra Overture, Aquaria, Lugaru and Gish pledged to go open source.I chatted with Jeffrey Rosen, co-founder of Wolfire Games today about the Humble Indie Bundle and about his thoughts on open source gaming and the potential for repeating the bundle’s success. Rosen said that gamers have long been asking about the code for Lugaru and had already reverse-engineered parts in order to design mods, maps, and new campaigns for the game. Open sourcing Lugaru made sense. Several bugs and fixes to Lugaru have already been added since opening the code last week. “The only question we’re asking ourselves now,” says Rosen, “is why we didn’t open source sooner.” Wolfire’s latest game, Overgrowth, is built with AngelScript and with HTML5, making parts of it open as well.It may be that the gaming industry is a perfect match for open source, as both gaming and open source rely on a community that is interested in a certain amount of reciprocity – contributing and sharing so as to improve the code (and the game).Another key to the success of the “Humble Indie Bundle” was the collaboration with several indie gaming companies. Rosen said he’d often seen Steam promote “indie bundles” to huge success and wanted to try this on his terms. Wolfire Games is a small startup, with only four employees, and by collaborating with other indies, they’ve been able to reach a wider audience. The massive success of the Humble Indie Bundle is a case in point.Rosen’s brother and co-founder David wrote a blog post reminding people that openware isn’t freeware. “The source code is intended to help out modders and aspiring game programmers, and will probably not be particularly useful for gamers who just want to get the game for free. Since we have no DRM, there are probably easier ways to pirate the game than learning how to compile and run a C++ project from a Mercurial repo.” Rosen says there doesn’t seem to be any loss of revenue or sales by going open source, although with the success of the Humble Indie Bundle, this little indie might have seen more sales this month that even before. Regardless, it does point to the strength in collaboration and the potential for open source for indie gaming startups.center_img Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… audrey watterslast_img read more

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool fullback Robertson: I’m bored of van Dijk praise…by Freddie Taylor10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAndy Robertson has joked that he’s bored of talking about Liverpool teammate Virgil van Dijk. The Dutchman’s stature continues to grow with each impressive performance for the Reds.But one of his teammates is tired of hearing the noise.”I’m getting bored speaking about how good he is!” said Robertson after Friday night’s win over Wolves.”No, I’m only joking. He was fantastic.”We knew when we saw [Adama] Traore up top that he has got great pace. His pace and direction are a big threat and big Virgil did so well with him. We knew on the counter-attack they were dangerous.”I’m sure he will be disappointed he has not scored more goals but it was a clean sheet and his first Premier League goal – pretty much a perfect day for him.”He’s been brilliant [since joining Liverpool]. I’ve had the pleasure of working alongside him for the majority of time on the left-hand side of the defence. He’s just a great lad to have next to you – I’m not sure he will say the same about me!”I think we have had a good relationship, we work together. The whole back four does, whoever plays, his impact on the club has been good. I look forward to it continuing.” last_img read more

Predicting The 1st Loss Of The Season For Every Power 5 Team

And, in the minds of many of these teams’ fan bases, their team will still be undefeated once September, October and November come to an end.  Power 5Predicting every team’s first loss.They are wrong, though. Pretty much every college football team will suffer at least one loss during the 2016 season. Only one Power 5 team went undefeated through the conference championship games last season, Clemson. And the Tigers, of course, didn’t end their campaign unblemished, falling to Alabama in the College Football Playoff title game. So a loss is coming, at some point, for all of your teams. We’re going to predict when that first loss is coming for every Power 5 team (and Notre Dame). Here are our predictions. Start With The ACC >>>Pages: Page 1 Page 2 Page 3 Page 4 Page 5 Page 6last_img read more
