Ian McIntyre was forced to start as many as seven freshmen at times in 2011. Thrust into a pressure situation amid a team-wide struggle, they didn’t thrive collectively.This year, the Syracuse head coach has the luxury of only starting three freshmen: Alex Bono, Jordan Vale and Stefanos Stamoulacatos. All three players have gotten off to strong starts for the Orange (5-1) and have helped lead the team to its best start since 1996.“We’ve got a really good group of new guys that have helped develop our culture day in and day out.” McIntyre said. “They’re also a group of guys that improve in practice and every game.”Bono has only allowed two goals in six games for Syracuse, leading the Big East in goals against average (0.34) and save percentage (.909). He has made 20 saves for the Orange and was recently named the Big East Goalkeeper of the Week.The freshman goalie has set the tone for fellow freshmen starters Vale and Stamoulacatos.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textVale has scored three goals and added an assist, while Stamoulacatos has one goal and three assists. Both players have logged considerable minutes in all six games.Ben Ramin also added a goal in Syracuse’s 6-0 win over Colgate.“We’ve done a good job at spreading goals around,” McIntyre said. “To have Ben, Jordan and Stefanos all chip in with goals, and important goals, has been exciting. It’s always nice to have that output from new faces.”This year’s group of freshmen has helped transform the culture of Syracuse soccer, and McIntyre insists the chemistry between the veteran players and the freshmen is what makes this team so potent.Sophomores Skylar Thomas, Jordan Murrell and Nick Perea have a year of college experience under their belt and have helped the newcomers get acclimated to playing college soccer.They’ve been through a rough season and now are helping elevate the team to a much higher level.“Those individuals have really helped our new guys because now they’re a year older, a year more experienced, more mature and more resilient,” McIntyre said. “The returning players have set the tone and led by example, so you blend those two together and it’s been a fun group to work with so far.”McIntyre said seniors Ted Cribley, Louis Clark and Lars Muller have set the tone for the Orange and served as role models for the freshmen on and off the field.“We have a special group of seniors that has really led by example day in, day out in practice, as well as how they prepare for games,” he said.Other Big East teams that have gotten off to hot starts, like Notre Dame, have no goals from freshmen. Five of the Orange’s 19 goals this year have come from freshmen, and 10 of its 19 strikes have come from players who are new to the program, including Tony Asante.Freshmen Noah Rhynhart and Juuso Pasanen have also played well for Syracuse. Pasanen recorded his first career point in SU’s 5-0 win over St. Bonaventure on Sunday.Syracuse’s newcomers have accounted for 25 of the team’s 96 shots, and 13 of those shots have been on goal.“Within our program, you earn a spot based on how you perform in practice, and then you keep that spot based on how you perform in games,” McIntyre said.“It doesn’t matter what year you are.” Comments Published on September 11, 2012 at 12:45 am Contact Trevor: email@example.com | @TrevorHass Facebook Twitter Google+
After cruising past Colgate in the season opener on Friday, No. 18 Syracuse (1-0) faces Holy Cross (0-1) in the Carrier Dome on Tuesday at 7 p.m. The Crusaders, out of the Patriot League, already have one blowout loss to their name and bring an underwhelming roster into SU territory in game two for each team.Here’s everything you need to know about Holy Cross.All-time series: Syracuse leads, 14-12Last time they played: On Nov. 28, 2014, SU downed the Crusaders in the Carrier Dome, 72-48. The Orange rode a 25-point outburst from Rakeem Christmas, who shot 8-of-10 from the field and 9-of-10 from the foul line. Chris McCullough added a double-double with 14 points and 13 rebounds, while Kaleb Joseph chipped in 14 points, seven rebounds and six assists.The Orange missed each of its 14 3-point attempts, but Holy Cross only went 3-of-16 from behind the arc. SU rolled out the walk-ons in the 24-point win and still won going away despite only outscoring the Crusaders by two points in the second half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Published on November 15, 2016 at 12:10 am Contact Matt: firstname.lastname@example.org | @matt_schneidman Facebook Twitter Google+ The Holy Cross report: Holy Cross went 15-20 last season, including a 5-13 mark in the Patriot League. But despite earning the second-to-last seed in the conference, the Crusaders won the conference tournament to earn a berth in the NCAA Tournament. Holy Cross then won a play-in game against Southern, 59-55, before being blown out by top-seeded Oregon, 91-52, in the Round of 64.The tallest player in Holy Cross’s starting lineup is 6-foot-7, and the Crusaders’ backcourt consists of two players under 6 feet tall. The Crusaders’ top three scorers from a season ago — Robert Champion, Malachi Alexander and Karl Charles — all return. The trio averaged a combined 34.4 points, 14.6 rebounds and 6.8 assists a season ago.How Syracuse beats the Crusaders: Aside from when John Gillon is on the floor, Syracuse will likely be bigger than Holy Cross at every position at all times. Like against Colgate, the Orange used Tyler Roberson and a host of others to pound the inside at will, something Jim Boeheim will presumably be able to do at leisure Tuesday night. That’ll open up shots for the likes of Andrew White, Gillon, Frank Howard and Tyus Battle on the outside – where more mismatches play in favor of the home team.Holy Cross shot under 33 percent from 3-point range as a team last season and with three of its four top 3-point shooters returning, that number shouldn’t waver too much. So as long as the Orange can secure its fair share of rebounds and not turn the ball over at an alarming rate, it should be able to coast again.Stat to know: 19 – Only 19 opponents in Syracuse history have more wins against the Orange than Holy Cross.Player to watch: Robert Champion, guard, No. 22The 6-foot-6 senior led the Crusaders with 12 points per game last season and ranked second on the team with 4.8 rebounds. In a 32-point loss to South Carolina to start the season, Champion scored a team-high 18 points. He shot 44.3 percent from the field last year and 36 percent from 3-point range, and will likely be the visitors’ go-to man on Tuesday night. Comments

The controversial distribution of US$ 100,000 Ebola Funds allotted from the Nimba County Development Funds to fight Ebola has backfired, with Gbi and Dorlu Administration District Commissioner David Toe saying he had not received a cent from the Administration of Nimba County, headed by Supt. Fong Zuagele.Commissioner David Toe on Radio Kehgheamahn Breakfast show on 6th October, 2014 said his district’s share of money to enable them to carry on awareness is yet to be delivered.All efforts to get his share have proven futile and the only reason given him is the allotted share for his district was spent on other Ebola issues in Karnplay.At the time of the distribution of the said funds, he said, he was on an awareness trip in his district distributing buckets and other preventive materials to the citizens.“At the time the stakeholders were meeting in Sanniquellie, I was on a trip distributing buckets and I didn’t hear the story, but when I got the info and went to Sanniquellie, the County Inspector, Reginald Mehn, told me that my share of the money was used to bury Ebola victim in Karnplay,” he said.“All the money I have been using for Ebola in my district came from my pocket; I have not received any money from the county as it was announced,” Commissioner Toe stated.Nimba leadership has been at loggerheads over how the US$ 100,000 allotted to fight Ebola in Nimba was used.The Nimba Lawmakers of the 53rd National Legislature had repeatedly said that the money was intended to purchase PPE and sufficient medical drugs for all health centers in Nimba, but instead, the county leadership headed by Supt. Fong Zuagele divided portions of the money among the 17 administration commissioners, city mayors, and media, while the some of the money was used to procure motorcycles for the awareness campaign in the county.The diversion of the funds from the expectation of the caucus brought great dissatisfaction among them, something they considered as disrespect.This crisis and other issues led the Lower House of Parliament to summon Superintendent Fong Zuagele and Development Superintendent Teeko Yorlay for an inquest. As a result; the plenary imposed a “vote of no confidence” in the two county officials.However, in counter reaction to Commissioner David Toe’s claim on the same media 6th October 2014, Nimba County Inspector Reginald Mehn said the Commissioner was left out, because he was at the special county council sitting to endorse the usage of the money so what was allotted for them was diverted to other area of need, precisely in Gbehlay Geh/Karnplay). It appears as though Gbi and Dorlu were not the only districts left out; Kparblee was another district believed not to have received any share of the Ebola Fund, Mr. Toe said. Gbi and Dorlu is one of the remotest districts in Nimba, located at the southern part of Nimba bordering Sinoe, Rivercess, and Grand Bassa counties. But this district had been complaining bitterly of marginalization from the county administration from developments and other opportunities. This has led them to seek legislation to join Rivercess County.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)
Despite the inclement weather on Sunday morning, the highly anticipated launch of the now annual Prime Minister’s T20 Softball Cup went ahead as planned at the Everest Cricket Club ground. The event marks the first step towards the three-day tournament which is set to bring together top softball teams from Guyana and North America battling for cash and other incentives.Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan (centre) with Georgetoen Softball Cricket League executives and sponsors at the launch of Prime Minister Softball Cup 2 on Sunday at Everest Cricket ClubSpeaking at the significant ceremony, Minister of Public Security Khemraj Ramjattan who represented Prime Minister Moses Nagamootoo said sport in any form may be used as a public security tool. “Sport helps people to understand the need for open spaces, the need to get fit which means no smoking, no drinking which is healthy,” Ramjattan said.The honourable minister told the gathering of softball cricketers and enthusiasts, “Young people that are involved in sport take their minds off the negatives and so it [sport] is important since a lot of persons involved in sport have more or less become law abiding citizens by taking themselves off the drugs, guns crimes which helps in the long run to make our societies safer.”In 2017, Prime Minister Nagamootoo made a sponsorship pledge of G$300,000 which was once again done this time by Minister Ramjattan who also spoke of the tourism benefits the country may generate from such a tournament.Also speaking from the head table was President of the GSCL, Ian John who reflected on the inaugural edition and at the same time boast of the anticipated growth of the 2018 tournament, “last year we had just two overseas teams but so far seven teams already confirmed their trip to Guyana and that number is expected to increase as we get closer [to the tournament].”Added to that, there is an increase in the winning purse in both categories with the All Stars set to pocket $700,000 while the winning Masters team will win $600,000. Like last year, the Most Valuable Player (MVP) in the Open Category will ride away with a Hero Motor Cycle compliments of Rose Ramdehol Auto Sales.In the Masters Category, the MVP will once again win a 55-inch television set compliments of Regal Stationery and Computer Centre who like Rose Ramdehol are repeat sponsors.Also present at the launch were Sarah Persaud of Hero Motor Cycles and Rawl Nedd of Banks DIH Limited who both spoke of their companies’ deep commitment to the success of the tournament.There we 20 teams in 2017 with Regal Masters rising above the 11 other masters teams and Speed Boat powering away from the other seven teams to the titles and G$500,000 and G$600,000 respectively.So far, the GSCL have confirmed that there are 24 teams that will suit up in the two categories from October 19 to 21. In the Open Category; Regal All Stars, Farm XI, Success XI, Boots All Stars, Corriverton Spartans, Die Hard All Stars, Bartica Rangers, Ontario Softball Cricket Association and defending champions Speed Boat will battle for G$700,000.In the Masters Over-45 category, the winning purse is G$600,000 where defending champions Regal Masters, Wellman Masters, HS Masters, R.R Masters, Fishermen Masters, Parika Masters, Success Masters, Tropical Spring Masters, Albion Masters, Florida/Guyana Hope, Impact Masters (Canada), NYSCL Masters (New York), Rebel Masters (New York), New York Hustlers (New York) and Better Hope Masters (New York) are set to lock horns.Another feature of the Prime Minister’s Softball Cup is that Florida Guyana Hope, a charitable organization out of the USA will be distributing various supplies to the value of US$20,000 to various individuals and organizations over the 3-day period.
The Ducks have spent the entire season near the top of the Western Conference standings while the Kings have sunk to the bottom, but the Kings showed Saturday that they still have some fight left in them. In the latest round of a cross-town battle often described as tepid, the Kings and Ducks played the roles of bickering neighbors and wore a path to the penalty box. Between scrums, they played some entertaining hockey, a game the Ducks ended winning 3-2 in a shootout in front of 18,118 at Staples Center. Chris Kunitz’s goal, 5:48 into the third period, gave the Ducks the lead. But Anze Kopitar tied the score with 5:14 left. Corey Perry scored in the fifth round of the shootout to give the Ducks the win, after Teemu Selanne and Michael Cammalleri traded goals in the second round. A contentious first period included just one goal – Alexander Frolov’s deflection with eight seconds left – but plenty of action, including one fight, three misconduct penalties and 56 penalty minutes. Things settled down a bit after that, and Teemu Selanne tied the score 3:22 into the second period. The goal was Selanne’s 300th as a Duck, which tied the franchise record set by Paul Kariya. The teams hadn’t met since Dec. 3, and there wasn’t any obvious animosity, but given the way things have been going for both teams of late, perhaps the chippy play shouldn’t have been a big surprise. In one of those what-was-he-thinking moments, the Kings’ Lubomir Visnovsky, listed – generously – at 5-foot-10 and 188 pounds, went charging after Travis Moen, the Ducks’ 6-2, 216-pound enforcer. After some initial clutching, pushing and yelling, Moen dumped Visnovsky to the ground with a shove, and could there have been a better metaphor for the way the Kings’ and Ducks’ seasons have gone? Neither team entered Saturday’s cross-town matchup in much of a sunny mood, though. The Kings have long since settled into last place in the conference and the Ducks, after a brilliant two-month burst to start the season, have slipped a bit and had lost seven of their previous 11 games. In fact, the Kings have had a better February than the Ducks. It took the Kings four months to find consistent goaltending, but the emergence of Sean Burke and Mathieu Garon has helped greatly. During their recent five-game East Coast swing, the Kings recorded at least one point in four games. “You can say all the right things in the (dressing) room and talk about being positive, but until you win, it doesn’t matter,” Kings team captain Mattias Norstrom said before the game. “We can do all the right things out there and have meetings … but the only way to learn how to win is by winning. “It’s no secret that if you’re going to win in this league, you have to have good goaltending.” Burke, who has a stellar 2.16 goals-against average since being claimed off waivers by the Kings, got the night off as the Kings turned to Garon, who looked to get back on track. Garon, who missed nine games last month with a broken finger, had made only one start since his return, when he allowed four goals in a loss to Washington, but Garon fared better against the Ducks. Through two periods, Garon stopped 17 of 18 shots. Garon’s only mistake came on the power play, when Selanne slapped in a rebound on a shot by Dustin Penner to tie the game in the second period. Frolov had given the Kings the lead with his 10th goal in his last 13 games, at the end of a rough-and-tumble first period that featured pushing and shoving after almost every whistle. The chippy play reached a peak nine minutes into the period, when equipment went flying in the Kings’ zone and a handful of shoving matches broke out. Twenty-four penalties minutes were issued, including misconduct penalties to the Kings’ Aaron Miller and the Ducks’ Samuel Pahlsson. Ducks goalie Jean-Sebastien Giguere, who allowed four goals against Phoenix on Thursday, rebounded nicely, held up under early pressure and stopped 21 of 22 shots through two periods. The Kings were shorthanded as Norstrom left the game in the first period and didn’t return. Norstrom took four shifts in the first 10 minutes of the first period, but then missed the entire second period. The Kings announced that Norstrom had left the game with an undisclosed lower-body injury. firstname.lastname@example.org (818) 713-3611 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
