RelatedPosts Runarsson joins Arsenal on four-year deal Mane double eases Liverpool to win over 10-man Chelsea EPL: Chelsea, Liverpool in cagey duel Frank Lampard has revealed he has spoken to former Aston Villa striker Tammy Abraham after Chelsea confirmed the signing of Timo Werner.Abraham, who fired Villa to promotion from the Championship last season with 26 goals, has found the net 16 times since returning to Stamford Bridge. But the England international will face competition from Werner next season after a deal to sign the forward from Bundesliga side RB Leipzig was announced on Thursday.Speaking ahead of Abraham’s return to Villa Park on Sunday, Lampard confirmed discussions have taken place and said he will be pleased to have another option.“I have spoken to Tammy before about competition,” Lampard told football.london. “I don’t have to address every player if another one comes in. It’s how it has been in the Abramovich era.“He has been fantastic this season. He has to sustain and improve because at Chelsea we have demands. I am happy to have options and competitions for places.”The Chelsea manager added: “Timo’s talent, humility and work ethic is one thing that stood out when I talked to him. “I think he is clearly a player we liked. I have certainly followed him for a while just as a talented player before I took this job. He will strengthen us, he is a huge talent who had a fantastic season.”Dean Smith wanted to retain Abraham’s services for this season and although a deal wasn’t possible, the 22-year-old paid tribute to Villa ahead of this weekend’s clash.“Last season when I knew I was going out on loan, my plan was to remain in the Premier League but it didn’t happen that way,” he said in an interview last week.“Thankfully I went to a good club like Aston Villa. I could build that confidence back and do my thing there and we had a really good season.”Tags: Aston VillaChelseaStamford BridgeTammy AbrahamTimo Werner
They finished fifth in the table, missing out on a place in next season’s Champions League by one point.“I have had the privilege to get to know Rino Gattuso over the past six months since my arrival at the club,” said AC Milan chief executive Ivan Gazidis.“Rino has given everything to our efforts this season, and has worked tirelessly, always taking full responsibility, putting the club above every other consideration.“I want to say from the bottom of our hearts, thank you Rino.”AC Milan, seven-time champions of Europe, have not played in the Champions League since 2013-14.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram Head Coach Gennaro Gattuso has left AC Milan by “mutual agreement” after the Serie A club missed out on Champions League qualification.The 41-year-old former midfielder, who played 468 matches for the club, had two years left on his contract.“AC Milan wishes to thank Gennaro Gattuso for his leadership during the last 18 months,” said a club statement.
Trailing 36-27 at halftime and by as much as 14 at one point, Liverpool had stormed back to tie it 49-49 going to the fourth quarter, only to have F-M go back in front. When Josh Michel converted a basket and free throw with 37.8 seconds left, the Hornets led 64-58.Then Jack Pento drained a 3-pointer, was fouled and made the ensuing free throw. Even with that, the Hornets were up 67-64 until Jacob Works got open and sank another 3-pointer at the horn to force OT.Then, in the last minute of the extra period, another Works 3-pointer keyed the final surge as he finished the night with 26 points, while Pento poured in 15 points. Kyle Caves had 13 points and Romeo Clarke added 11 points. When the Liverpool boys basketball team made its way to Cicero-North Syracuse for the renewal of their rivalry last Friday night, it had already made one great escape during the week.And while the Warriors’ 73-53 win over the Northstars proved entertaining in its own right, it could not match the wild nature of what had taken place at Fayetteville-Manlius three nights earlier.There, Liverpool seemed beaten before a stunning last-minute turnaround in regulation led to a 79-73 overtime win over the Hornets. While that was going on, C-NS took a 60-39 defeat to Henninger, yet another instance where the Northstars played an opponent close for a long stretch.The Northstars only trailed the Black Knights 33-31 through three periods before Henninger dominated the fourth quarter, seeing Zakir Faircloth-Williams (16 points), Carlito Aldamuy (14 points), Tong Mading and Rasheed Bailey (10 points) apiece all hit double figures.Again, Luke Paragon would pace C-NS, finishing with 14 points and eight rebounds, while Kevin Felasco finished with nine points.Now the Northstars turned to its rematch with Liverpool and, just like with Henninger, the Northstars were competitive for long stretches and then things got away.Though up 18-13 through one period, the Warriors had a difficult time gaining full control against a well-balanced C-NS attack.But Liverpool closed on a 27-11 run, Works leading the way by earning 18 points as Pento had 14 points and Jacob Vacco made an emphatic return to the lineup, earning 13 points.Paragon also had 13 points to pace the Northstars, adding nine rebounds. Joe Penizotto had 11 points, with Brian Bonin getting 10 points and Grant Sennett adding nine points.After the loss to Liverpool, C-NS would take on F-M and Corcoran this week as the Warriors go to Baldiwnsville on Tuesday and visit Nottingham Friday night.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: boys basketballC-NSliverpool
Since winning the 2011 Big East championship, Syracuse has lost in the first round of conference tournament play each of the past two years.The freshmen from that team are seniors now. The Orange has a .500 overall record heading into its first Atlantic Coast Conference tournament and only one way to qualify for the NCAA tournament and extend the careers of Shirley Daniels, Jasmine Watson and Alexis Partyka. “We want to win it because that’s our only shot at going to NCAAs,” Daniels said. “We kind of have more to fight for, more than just a championship. “We want to keep going deep into the postseason.”The No. 6-seed Orange (24-24, 12-12 ACC) will play No. 3-seed Virginia Tech on May 8 in College Park, Md. It will be a rematch of SU’s final series of the regular season on April 26–27, in which Syracuse took two-of-three games to clinch a spot in the ACC tournament, which marks the last run for Watson, Daniels and Partyka. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEven if Syracuse wins two games in the ACC tournament, its record likely won’t be good enough to earn an at-large bid for the NCAA tournament. The only way for the Orange to get in is through automatic qualification, which can only come from winning the ACC championship.“You cannot have a great game and lose, and you’re out in the first round,” Partyka said. “Definitely more of a sense of urgency because we do know that if we don’t show up to play that day, it could be our last.”In their first season at SU, Daniels, Watson and Partyka not only helped the Orange to its second consecutive Big East championship, but also the program’s first-ever NCAA tournament win. That year, Watson ranked fourth on the team in home runs and Daniels was fourth in stolen bases.In 2012, the Orange went one-and-done in the Big East tournament after a 2-1 loss to St. John’s, but won three NCAA tournament games, including a 1-0 victory over No. 2 Arizona State. Daniels ranked third in batting average, hits and stolen bases, while Watson was tied for second with 10 home runs.But after two years of at least some level of postseason success, Syracuse went 23-29 in 2013 and lost to Louisville in the first round of the conference tournament, failing to make the NCAA tournament. For a senior class that has seen both ends of the spectrum, there’s one last chance to salvage last season’s early conclusion. “Play like every game is your last because you don’t want to go out there and regret or wish you did anything else,” Partyka said. “Win or lose, you want to go out there and leave it all on the field.”In the program’s first season in the ACC, Syracuse has performed as expected after being picked to finish seventh in the conference in the preseason coaches poll. Daniels set the all-time stolen bases record on March 15, while Watson broke the program’s home-run mark on April 2. Partyka also saw her role increase significantly from years past, appearing in 25 games and scoring seven runs in her final season. The Orange is a lower seed heading into the conference tournament, but did take two of three games from second-seed Virginia Tech just two weeks ago. “As you can see, it doesn’t really matter what ranking we are because at any given time, a low seed can beat a high seed,” Watson said. “You can have huge upsets, so I definitely believe that we’ll do well.”Each senior helped the Orange beat the Hokies on April 26 and in turn, qualify for its first ACC tournament. Daniels singled off Kat Banks after making a shoestring catch to preserve a 3-3 tie in the seventh. Watson went 2-for-3 with a run and a RBI. Partyka scored the game-winning run in the bottom of the eighth to clinch the win and the ACC tournament berth.In a matter of weeks, the three seniors will have played their last game for Syracuse. Daniels starts her job at Macy’s in New York City on June 3, Watson has one more semester to complete before she graduates and Partyka will attend graduate school at SU, where she’ll study school counseling in the master’s program.Although life will soon take them their separate ways, there’s one last mission to tackle.“We’re not just going in there being whatever seed we’re going to be just to lose first game,” Daniels said. “We want to win.” Comments Published on May 8, 2014 at 2:15 am Contact Matt: email@example.com | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+
On Thursday, Undergraduate Student Government hosted an information session on the USC Village, which is set to open in the fall of 2017.The event was held in the Ronald Tutor Campus Center from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. and featured a presentation conducted by Vice Provost of Student Affairs Ainsley Carry and Vice President and Executive Director of Capital Construction and Facilities Management Lloyd Silberstein.Village people · Above, Lloyd Silberstein, senior vice president of Capital Construction, presents images of The Village at an information session on campus Thursday evening. – Audey Shen | Daily Trojan“This is truly an amazing moment in our university’s history to celebrate the progress we’ve made,” USG president Andrew Menard said. “This development will be the heart of a new community where students can come together and experience state-of-the-art classrooms, collaborative study spaces, concerts, seminars, and cultural and artistic events.”Silberstein first presented images of the project as a whole, noting that the buildings have a distinctive Gothic style and pointed arch entryways.“This campus is growing to the north, and it’s growing in a big way,” Silberstein said. “Although it looks different architecturally from the rest of campus, the design is similar to Wallis Annenberg Hall, and the tower relates to our most iconic building, the Mudd Hall of Philosophy.”The Village will showcase a library, breakout rooms, a lounge and café facing the courtyard on the ground level alone. Underground levels have classes and large lecture halls, while higher floors will hold research spaces.Students in attendance expressed their anticipation for the center’s opening, particularly freshmen since they will have access to The Village by their senior year.“I’m looking forward to the USC Michelson Center for Convergent Bioscience,” Sean Thomas, a freshman majoring in biology said. “As a pre-med student, it’s really nice to see they’re putting forth the effort to improve the science program.”Carry described the expanded residential college experience that will accompany The Village’s opening, which will house 600 freshman honors students and 2,200 others across all grade levels.“All incoming students will be invited to live in a residential college,” Carry said. “We will offer an academic curriculum where residents can attend classes in their resident halls and participate in experiential activities like field trips and cultural events. Being a part of it will make living on campus a highlight of the college experience.”In addition to academia, The Village features a large dance studio for the USC Glorya Kaufman School of Dance and a 30,000-square-foot fitness center with outdoor basketball courts and recreational playing fields.“I always feel excited when I pass by the construction of the new USC Village,” said Raphael Krigel, a freshman majoring in communication. “To me, The Village symbolizes a new chapter in the history of this ever-evolving university. It’s a wonderful investment in the future of our school and the diverse community that surrounds us.”The Village will feature chain stores like Bank of America, Starbucks Coffee and Trader Joe’s. According to Silberstein, the facility also plans to have a bar and grill-type restaurant and “Trojan Town,” a shop where clothing from the lower level of the USC Bookstore will be relocated.“I’m looking forward to the food options, especially the Trader Joe’s,” said Ailish Ullman, a freshman majoring in biology. “The access will make it a lot easier for college students to make nutritious choices.”Carry is optimistic that the expansion will be a haven for all students to have the opportunity to study, participate in extracurricular activities and have leisure time.“The USC Village allows students to have a very sustainable college experience with the safety and convenience of having everything in one particular area,” Carry said.
At the midpoint of the season, here’s head coach Mike Eaves’ verdict on the Wisconsin men’s hockey team: not quite yet.After a 3-3 tie with visiting No. 1 Minnesota-Duluth in the series opener, Eaves hoped the Badgers would take a step forward in the second game. Instead, UW fell behind early and lost a 4-2 game at the Kohl Center to head into the midseason break.“What was disappointing is we that didn’t take that mental step to come out and be that dictating team,” Eaves said. “That’s just a sign that we’re not ready for that step, we’re still awful young.”After an encouraging performance Friday, the Badgers found themselves down 4-0 entering the third period Saturday night. Goaltender Joel Rumpel was pulled midway through the second period after giving up his fourth goal of the night and replaced with Landon Peterson.And while the Badgers were able to come out strong in the first game of the series and take a 2-0 lead in the first period Friday, the Bulldogs asserted themselves immediately Saturday night.Jack Connolly scored 1:39 into the game, firing a shot from the right half-wall that went off UW defenseman Justin Schultz’s leg and past Rumpel. Up 2-0 in the second period, the Bulldogs got another fortunate bounce, as a long shot from Brady Lamb missed the net but bounced hard off the boards and came right to Travis Oleksuk, who just needed to tap the puck in and give UMD a 3-0 lead.“I thought the first two periods tonight were some of our better periods,” UMD head coach Scott Sandelin said. “Just how we were playing; I liked their energy, we were defending well, guys were in the right positions.While UW didn’t take the step it wanted to, the young Badger squad did see a Bulldogs team that has two things that elude Wisconsin: experience and the ability to win on the road.UMD improved to 5-0-3 on the road this season and also improved the longest current unbeaten streak in the nation (12-0-3). Wisconsin is 0-5-1 on the road this season and despite putting together a sweep of then-No. 5 North Dakota in October and a split with then-No. 1 Minnesota, hasn’t been able to put together a consistent stretch of wins.So did UW take another step back with the loss?“I don’t know. It’s tough to say. I don’t really think so,” sophomore Mark Zengerle said. “We’re playing a tough team, I mean it’s our own rink and we want to win, obviously. But at the same time, we’re missing two big guys in our lineup.”It took a gutsy coaching maneuver and some Bulldogs penalties for the Badgers to finally score, as they played without a goaltender for 5:42 of the game, the bulk of it at the end of the third period with UW on the power play. Drew Olson was called for checking from behind, giving the Badgers a five-minute power play. At one point, there were six Badger skaters on the ice to three Bulldogs.“I have to be honest with you, the six-on-three with the empty net was Shuey’s (assistant coach Gary Shuchuk) idea,” Eaves said. “He’s been selling that to us for a couple of years since he’s been with our staff. He says, ‘Coach, this works, this works.’”It worked, as UW scored on a six-on-four and a five-on-four advantage. Freshman Brad Navin scored on a nice centering pass from Schultz at 12:41 of the third. Mark Zengerle extended his point streak to 17 games with his eighth goal of the year, putting away a rebound after Tyler Barnes made a strong drive to the net.Friday night, Wisconsin blew 2-0 and 3-2 leads in a 3-3 tie that pushed the Badgers to 0-3-2 this season in overtime games and 1-12-21 in their last 34 overtime contests.Schultz had a two-goal night and gave the Badgers a short 3-2 lead 28 seconds into the third period.The Bulldogs tied the game less than three minutes later on a long shot at 3:32 of the third period. Caleb Herbert was credited with the goal.UW certainly got its chances to put UMD away. The Badgers had eight power plays – four in the second period alone – and converted on only one. Wisconsin spent a combined 12:18 on the man-advantage, but was unable to get much through a Minnesota Duluth penalty kill unit that collapsed around the net and took away shooting lanes.There wasn’t much the Badgers could do but shake their heads and smile.“We came on the bench one time and were laughing because we had so many chances,” Zengerle said.Minnesota Duluth got goals from Scott Kishel and Wade Bergman early in the second period to tie the game at two. After a rough first period, the Bulldogs looked more poised and dangerous the rest of the game, while the Badgers’ youth began to show.Navin put the Badgers up 1-0 at of the first, scoring his first collegiate goal by tipping a Frankie Simonelli shot.Wisconsin doesn’t play again until an exhibition game against the U.S. Under-18 team Dec. 31. Eaves didn’t get the step forward he wanted Saturday night, but is hopeful it will come in the second half of the season.“We told the boys in the locker room right after, ‘we want to be very clear with you where we stand right now; we like this group of young men that we have in the locker room,” he said. “We see moments that are very encouraging. Those moments have to be more consistent and that consistency is going to come as we grow up together.’”
Published on November 3, 2019 at 11:23 pm Contact Danny: firstname.lastname@example.org | @DannyEmerman Facebook Twitter Google+ Sarah Sinck often doesn’t remember most of her saves. In the moment, her mind goes blank.“Sometimes after games,” Sinck said, “people will go, ‘Oh, great save,’ and I’m like ‘What are you talking about?’”One moment Syracuse’s goalie won’t forget, though, is her team sprinting from the midfield to greet her by the cage on Oct. 20. Sinck had just rejected all four of No. 3 Connecticut’s penalty strokes to secure SU’s second win over a top-five opponent. A career-high 11 saves in that game, including a sliding stop on a two-on-one in overtime, put the Orange in position for the shutout win.That performance earned Sinck a conference defensive player of the week award, but a career-game against UConn wasn’t an outlier. No. 14 Syracuse (12-5, 3-3 Atlantic Coast) has leaned on the freshman throughout the season. Sinck entered the year competing for the starting job but has become one of SU’s most important players and the ACC leader in saves per game (3.65).“I just think she was connected, and in the moment,” SU head coach Ange Bradley said of Sinck’s performance against UConn. “She played fearless.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLast winter, Syracuse wasn’t on Sinck’s radar. She didn’t even know if she wanted to go to the United States for college. But when the Eindhoven, Netherlands native’s club team switched coaches and added a second goalie, she started researching American universities.In Syracuse, Sinck found what she was looking for — a top-notch field hockey program and an opportunity to build off an internship at Philips with industrial design. After a 2018 European Championships win with the U18 Dutch national team, Sinck committed to SU in late March of 2019.“I just wanted to shoot my shot,” Sinck said.When Sinck started training with Syracuse, she and sophomore Syd Taylor vied for the starting job. Early in the season, they alternated starts, and Bradley often used both in a game. Taylor had a year of prior experience with SU’s system, and Sinck had to learn the different technical aspects of the American game.Eva Suppa | Digital Design EditorIn Europe, players are generally more skilled and have more powerful shots. Sinck had to anticipate shots as players began their shooting motion to be able to react in time. Now playing at Syracuse, Sinck waits until a player connects with the ball to start her save motion.“It sounds weird,” Sinck said, “but when you go from fast balls to slow balls it’s hard because you have to get adjusted to the timing.”Since a double overtime win over No. 2 Duke on Sept. 27 in which Sinck allowed one goal in 77 minutes, the freshman has started every match.At 5-foot-9, Sinck’s style in net is predicated on cutting down angles and making kick saves. Midfielder Carolin Hoffmann said Sinck’s footwork and movement make her tough to beat.To prevent scores in two-on-ones or other rushes, Sinck’s strategy is to stay upright for as long as possible, then read and react to the opponent. Depending on the forward’s decision, Sinck will either come off her line to cut off a shooting angle or slide to intercept a crossing pass.With four minutes left in overtime against No. 5 Louisville on Nov. 2, Sinck came off her line once again, this time in a one-on-one situation. She dove and stuffed a Cardinal forward to keep the score tied at one in an eventual upset win — SU’s third top-five win of the season.Now that she’s adjusted to field hockey in America, Sinck needs to continue her sharp play in the postseason for Syracuse to make an NCAA tournament run.
