Syracuse defense stifles Stony Brook, helps Orange win turnover battle

first_imgIn Syracuse’s last game, a two-goal win over Loyola (Md.) on May 3, the SU defense almost let a five-goal lead turn into a devastating loss.Syracuse’s turnover woes led to easy transition scoring for the Greyhounds.But the problems that plagued Syracuse last Saturday were largely absent as the second-seeded Orange (19-2, 6-1 Atlantic Coast) won the turnover battle, shutting down Stony Brook (17-4, 4-1 America East), 13-6, in the second round of the NCAA tournament at SU Soccer Stadium on Sunday afternoon. “Usually when we have practice for such a long time, we’re on our toes ready,” defender Natalie Glanell said. “When we have so much time to prepare we usually come out on fire like that.” Syracuse forced 16 turnovers. It’s biggest came at the end of the first half. SBU’s Courtney Murphy was attempting a free-position shot to bring the score to within six. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textInstead, the Syracuse defense collapsed and forced a turnover with 10 seconds to play. The Orange got out in transition and scored to increase its lead to eight heading into halftime. “When it counted in that first half, they were all over it, making plays,” SU head coach Gary Gait said. “That’s all we can ask for of them.”Stony Brook got off just three shots in the first half. It’s first was by Murphy just more than four minutes into the game. Goalie Kelsey Richardson reached out and blocked it away with her stick to keep Stony Brook off the board. All afternoon, Syracuse’s defense ensured similar opportunities were few and far between for the Seawolves.“It’s friggin’ – we’re going to the next round,” Glanell said. “It’s awesome. It’s exciting. There’s so much chemistry on this team.” Comments Related Stories Murray scores 4 straight goals to start game, powers Syracuse past Stony Brook into NCAA quarterfinalsSyracuse dominates draw circle in victory over Stony Brook Published on May 11, 2014 at 7:31 pm Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3center_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Several Escape Death

first_imgWhat would have been a serious disaster missed residents of Buzzy Quarter on January 11, 2014 when the brakes of a container truck failed and its  driver lost control.The truck came from the road crossing Capitol Bypass stretching down to the former Ministry of Labor.Eye witnesses told the Daily Observer that they saw the truck passing by without knowing that it had mechanical problems. Much to their surprise, it suddenly crashed into the fence surrounding the old Ministry of Labor building undergoing renovation.The slum community of Buzzy Quarter is home to hundreds of residents, many of which sell along the roadside while others have their provision centers near the very area where the truck crashed.The level of damage caused by the truck has not been made clear. However, when the Daily Observer reached the scene of the accident, the broken window glasses were shattered on the side where the wreckage of the truck is still parking.When the police were contacted on January 13, 2014, spokesperson Sam Collins said the Accident Division was still compiling its report to order the driver and company that owns the truck to court.According to Mr. Collins, container trucks are not allowed to ply the streets of Monrovia until the evening hours when traffic is less busy. The driver refused to abide by this rule and bypassed the main road leading to the central part of the city.Mr. Collins said the driver is in custody awaiting a court date, and they were still assessing the damage done to the building to establish the cost.He stressed that there is a restriction on containers plying the streets in the day until 6 p.m. when traffic has reduced in the streets.He warned all to abide by the restriction to avoid embarrassment with the police.Even though the police spokesman admitted to the rule being in place to restrict containers from plying the streets of Monrovia, it remains quite challenging for this restriction to be maintained.At most times in the day, 20 or 40-foot containers are seen plying streets and delivering goods from the seaport.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

He joked to donegaldaily.com afterwards: “Paul Simon will be meeting with his solicitors after that!”All proceeds from the song will go to the suicide crisis centre Pieta House, with bookies already predicting that it will take on this year’s X Factor for the number 1 slot!The Dublin Gospel Choir and the Lucan Gospel Choir were on hand to provide, well, a bit of professional harmony.Bridge Over Troubled Water can be downloaded on iTunes for €1.29. The project was sponsored by Noel Recruitment. Eighteen TDs and Senators took part in the recording organised by Fine Gael TD Derek Keating.“Everyone sounded great.
