Syracuse scores twice early to beat Cornell, 2-0

first_imgIn the eighth minute of Syracuse’s matchup with Cornell, it found the separation that eluded it three days prior against No. 12 Notre Dame. A string of passes and turnovers ended with the ball at Ryan Raposo’s feet. The freshman darted his eyes towards Cornell’s goalie, Ryan Shellow. The Big Red stalwart was flat-footed and Raposo noticed. Raposo wound his right leg back, sending the ball curling towards the top-right corner, past Shellow’s out-stretched hand. On a rain-soaked field that temporarily knocked out the scoreboard at Charles F. Berman Field, Raposo’s strike served as a catalyst for the Orange offense. It kick-started a 13-minute stretch that proved the difference in Syracuse’s (3-2, 0-1 Atlantic Coast) 2-0 victory over Cornell (3-1) in Ithaca. “We started the game well,” Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre said. “We’re up 2-0 on the road in the first 12 minutes. That was awesome.”The early firepower further demonstrated SU’s offensive ability. The Orange played without its point leader, Tajon Buchanan, who suffered a knee injury this past Friday. And it didn’t matter. SU still scored multiple goals. It was the third-straight game it did so. On Monday night, Cornell was its latest victim. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFour minutes after Raposo’s goal, SU kept up the pressure. It extended possessions by creating turnovers in the midfield. In the 12th minute, Hugo Delhommelle, the designated set piece taker, whipped a ball into a thicket of bodies. Grad-transfer Len Zeugner rose and angled his head perpendicular to the ground. His header bounced into the back post, doubling the Orange lead. After the initial flurry, Syracuse’s offense “took its foot off the gas,” McIntyre said. The Big Red wrestled back control of the match by executing short passes. McIntyre said the rain acted as an “equalizer,” preventing the Orange from controlling possession. Jonathan Hagman, Massimo Ferrin, and Delhommelle rushed at Cornell forwards, taking away vertical passing options. Yet the home team generated scoring chances and took advantage of poor positioning by SU’s backline. In the 21st minute, Kamal Miller was left on an island and chased a striker down the right side of the Orange defense. The scrum led to a free kick just outside the penalty area. It gave Cornell a set piece, something Syracuse failed to handle in its most recent loss against Notre Dame. The initial shot was deflected, but Caleb McAuslan was left alone in the box and had a point-blank attempt at SU goalie Hendrik Hilpert. McAuslan’s shot flew wide, drawing a gasp from the Cornell faithful. “We lacked a little bit of quality in the second half,” McIntyre said. “We were absorbing a lot of pressure. They were throwing everything at us, they had nothing to lose.”SU spent the remainder of the match on its heels, dealing with eight Cornell shots and more scoring opportunities. Yet the shutout was maintained. A doorstep shot was cleared away by a Syracuse defender. Hilpert was late on a clearance, gifting Cornell a scoring chance. The Big Red pushed a ball over the line in the 55th minute, but it was disallowed due to an offsides call. After the game, Syracuse dried off and celebrated with music on the team bus. The first shutout of the year wasn’t the easiest, but it got SU above .500 ahead of its matchup against Clemson on Friday night. “The guys realized the challenge here,” McIntyre said. “It was a combative, physical game. We found a way.” Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img Published on September 10, 2018 at 9:59 pm Contact Nick: nialvare@syr.edu | @nick_a_alvarezlast_img read more

Photo: El Paso Newspaper Mistakenly Calls Washington State “Huskies”

first_imgWashington State mistakenly called the Huskies in newspaper article.Wazzu HuskiesWashington State capped off a bounce-back season with a 20-14 win over Miami in the Sun Bowl on Saturday. Apparently, however, the win wasn’t enough to earn respect from the local media. This morning’s El Paso Times headline about the game featured a colossal error: it referred to Wazzu as the “Huskies” instead of the Cougars.Take a step forward if you can report the correct team names in your local bowl. Not so fast @elpasotimes #gocougs pic.twitter.com/YLZ6LalYZM— Jeff (@saomonella) December 27, 2015Of course, the Huskies are Washington, Wazzu’s top rival.

Thousands Attend Independence Grand Gala

first_img Thousands gathered to celebrate the country’s 51st Anniversary at the Independence Grand Gala Story Highlights The event, which was held under the theme, ‘Our History, Our Strength’, showcased the nation’s rich musical legacy The show also paid homage to a number of outstanding Jamaicans A sea of black, green and gold descended on the National Stadium in Kingston on Tuesday, August 6, as thousands of Jamaicans from near and far, gathered to celebrate the country’s 51st Anniversary at the Independence Grand Gala.Among those in attendance were Their Excellencies the Governor-General, the Most Hon. Sir Patrick Allen and Lady Allen; Prime Minister the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller; Minister of Youth and Culture, Hon. Lisa Hanna; other Cabinet Ministers; and Custos of Kingston, Hon. Steadman Fuller.The event, which was held under the theme, ‘Our History, Our Strength’, showcased the nation’s rich musical legacy over the past five decades. The well-organised production took the audience on a musical journey, highlighting past and present entertainers, who have had tremendous successes on the local and international stage.From Derrick Morgan, Ken Boothe, General Trees and Tiger to Junior Reid, Queen Ifrica and Junior Gong, the country’s rich repertoire of musical talent, creativity and innovation was well represented.Not to be outdone were the performances of the uniformed and costumed groups, choirs and dance troupes, who gave stunning performances throughout the evening’s proceedings.The show also paid homage to a number of outstanding Jamaicans, who have helped to focus international eyes on an island of just 2.7 million people. Among the video tributes of the evening were a replay of the Men’s 4×100 meters Final at the 2012 London Olympics; a feature on Jamaican Miss Worlds; and a tribute to past and present Prime Ministers.But, it was the unforgettable feature on the best festival songs over the years which brought the audience to their feet. Both young and old could be seen dancing and singing along to songs such as ‘Land of my Birth’, ‘Bam Bam’ and ‘Mek wi Jam’.Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Youth and Culture, Sydney Bartley, told JIS News that this year’s production was different from all other Grand Galas of the past.“We deliberately wanted it to be different…We looked at the Grand Gala over the last several years and (we decided this year) to do a (production) that was totally artistic,” he said.“We brought in dance companies, trained dancers, choirs and we decided to do a musical – different from the other Grand Galas of the past,” he explained.Mr. Bartley said that while this year’s event was somewhat different, it still sought to uphold tradition by highlighting the richness of Jamaica’s culture and history. “You want to maintain your traditions, but you also want to change, innovate and create,” he added.“My feeling now is that the people seem to be enjoying it and that is good, because ultimately that’s what you want,” he said.Mr. Bartley noted that the organisers were able to put on a spectacular show with very limited funding. “The Grand Gala budget was about $50 million and we had to use that in some very wise ways. I have to lift my hat to the creative team that worked day and night to do this,” he said.“I also lift my hat to the dressmakers from the inner city communities, who sat down after the costumes were designed and worked (overtime) to make these brilliant costumes tonight,” he added.Patron, Jean Sutherland, who lives in New York, but visits Jamaica every year, said she was happy to be celebrating the nation’s 51st Independence in such grand style.She pointed out that her favourite segment of the show was the festival song feature. “It was very entertaining and it brought me way back to the (old days), back to Dinki Mini and those things. That’s what festival was all about,” she said.Spanish Town resident, Dave Davis, said the Grand Gala is one event that he cannot miss. “I am a born Jamaican. I am here every year,” he said.Mr. Davis said he enjoyed himself tremendously, adding that the performance from D.J. Tiger was the most memorable moment of the show.  “I haven’t heard anything from Tiger in many years. I didn’t even know he was still in Jamaica, so it was a pleasure to hear his voice,” he added.last_img read more

Gracia geared up for tough Bournemouth test

first_imgAhead of their trip to Bournemouth on Wednesday, Watford boss Javi Gracia says his side needs no extra motivation to beat Eddie Howe’s side at the Vitality Stadium.Gracia saw his side lose 4-0 at home to Bournemouth in their first meeting in the Premier League in October.As they prepare to travel to Bournemouth on Wednesday, Gracia wants his side focused on the tactical and technical aspects of the game, and not on revenging their 4-0 defeat.“I don’t think my players need the motivation to do our best,” he told the club’s official website.“I know my players and I know in all the games without exception they give their best. They don’t need extra motivation to play against Bournemouth.”In the October clash between the two teams, Watford had a player sent off after Bournemouth took the lead.Joshua King then scored a brace after Christian Kabasele was shown red and the first half ended 3-0.Callum Wilson completed the scoring two minutes into the second half to make it a humiliating 4-0 home defeat for Javi Gracia’s side.What to expect from Watford V Arsenal? Taimoor Khan – September 8, 2019 Arsenal are set to take on Watford this weekend and the game is definitely going to be quite a peculiar contest between two sides…“It was a very, very tough game for us,” Gracia said, recalling the events of the game.“After the sending off, it was difficult to play with ten players and losing 2-0. It was tough for us. I saw the game many times, not only the period against ten men.“I saw when we played with 11 and that was for around 30 minutes. In that moment, I think we conceded one goal and I think we didn’t play badly.“We could have done many things better but we kept a good level in that 30 minutes. After that it was a bad game, maybe I made some decisions, like playing Capoue as a center-back to see if able to have more options.“There were different situations, decisions like that. But I am sure it will be different. We know it will be demanding against a good team, but I am sure we compete in the same way as in other games, we have options.”last_img read more

Behind the Latest Restructuring at Condé Nast

first_imgLast month, the company announced it was shuttering the print edition of Teen Vogue in order to invest in the brand’s growing digital presence, while also making reductions in the frequencies of several other titles. Meanwhile, it launched six new digital brands and recently unveiled an expanded 23 Stories’ Creative Group under creative director Dirk Standen, which the company says now caters to “more than a dozen big external clients” like 20th Century Fox and Lincoln.Per comScore data, the company hit a record 113 million web visitors across its portfolio in October, and in November topped one billion total video views across its own brands’ platforms, YouTube, and Facebook.“We are already seeing results within the sales division of a more unified approach to the market, and there is clear momentum heading into Q1 2018, pacing well ahead of last year at this time,” Blanchard adds.In a holiday note to staffers this week, CEO Bob Sauerberg pointed to the restructuring of Allure and Teen Vogue, the hiring of Radhika Jones as Graydon Carter’s successor at Vanity Fair, the launches of digital brands like them, and The New Yorker’s Pulitzer Prize, among several other things, as highlights of the year.“We make the best content in the world, and that is something that will never change,” Sauerberg wrote. “No matter what new platform, trend or app disrupts our industry next, it will be our content that matters the most.” Major changes are afoot at Condé Nast as the publisher continues to evolve its operations to meet changing demands from consumers and advertisers alike.Responding to a Sunday New York Post report that the company was “poised to take a scalpel to its corporate side” after losing $100 million this year, Condé Nast chief communications officer Cameron Blanchard tells Folio:, “We are going to … look at the corporate functions to make sure that these areas are best set up to support the new business and editorial structures we put in place over this past year.”Those new structures, which took shape through multiple reorganizations in late 2016 and early 2017, were primarily aimed at driving efficiency by increasing collaboration across departments.Where publishers were once responsible for individual brands, chief business officers now oversee multiple titles. A unified sales and marketing team, under the banner “Condé Nast One,” reports to chief revenue and marketing officer Pamela Drucker Mann. Fashion and beauty editors collaborate on content for brands across the company’s portfolio, and formerly disparate creative, copy, and research teams were merged to operate in a more cross-brand manner a little over a year ago.As with most media-company restructurings, those shifts were followed by multiple rounds of layoffs, and Blanchard acknowledges, “We will resource more heavily in the growth areas, which may result in some duplications in others,” but insists the changes are not a cost-cutting exercise, but a restructuring to support the aforementioned changes elsewhere within the company.A privately held company, Condé Nast does not publicly disclose its finances, but its moves over the past year indicate that its evolution is at least in large part aimed at cutting costs tied to print in order to further embrace new revenue from digital media, events, and its recently expanded creative services unit, 23 Stories, which acquired experiential agency Pop2Life in March and produced a two-day Teen Vogue Summit in Los Angeles earlier this month.last_img read more
