Sept. 30, 2007 Box Score PENSACOLA, Fla. – West Florida’s (9-1-0, 2-0-0 GSC) attack was too much for the Harding (3-8-0, 0-2-0 GSC) defense as they rolled to their ninth straight victory 5-0 Sunday afternoon at the UWF Soccer Complex.The Argonauts scored three times within the first 10 minutes of the match. Rafael Segal scored two of the goals, the first coming only a minute-and-a-half into the match when Keith Savage left a pass at the top of the box for the junior to finish. Segal struck again four minutes later when he headed in a cross fro Jimmy McHenry for his eighth goal of the season.At the 7:26 mark of the first half, Nolan Intermoia netted his first goal of the season when he flicked the ball over the head of the Harding defense coming off a set play sent in by Mason Hupp.West Florida would keep possession of the ball for a majority of the first half and take the 3-0 lead into the break.The Argonaut would begin the second half similar to the first scoring early and quickly. In the 54th minute, Jimmy McHenry would pick up his team leading ninth goal of the season after Savage and Segal set up McHenry with a break away. It was Savage’s 22nd assist of his career placing 3rd in school history, just three behind the all-time record set by Pat Cannon who played from 1998-2001.Less then two minutes later Savage would also pick up his ninth goal of the season when he scored off of a corner kick, which was flicked on by Patrick McLean.For Savage it was his 24th point of the season and 106th of his career placing him third in school history.The Argonauts defense remain solid keeping the Bisons attack to only 10 shot three of which were on goal. Keepers Juan Garcia and David McNally combined for three saves en route to West Florida’s fifth shut out of the seasonThe Argonaut will play one more home against William Carey on Thursday beginning at 7:30 p.m. before going on a three game road trip all against conference opponents. “Live Stats” for all game will be available at goargos.com on the Men’s Soccer home page.

The Latics head to Wembley anchored in the Barclays Premier League relegation zone knowing their manager is hot favourite to replace David Moyes at Goodison Park following the confirmation he will join Manchester United on July 1. Wigan chairman Dave Whelan has already insisted the Toffees are not a big enough club to attract someone of Martinez’s calibre. However, whilst he allowed himself a chuckle at Whelan’s intervention, it is clearly not a debate Martinez is prepared to get into, either with the media or, more importantly, Everton – at least not now. “It would be a waste of time for anyone at the moment,” said Martinez. “The chairman has a fantastic knowledge about the game and you can ask him anything. He will never turn away from an answer. But the most important thing for me is to be ready for Saturday. “Whatever people say doesn’t affect us. This is the peak of our season and we are not going to lose any focus or concentration. All that matters is Wigan Athletic. We need to fight to make our fans proud.” It is a shame for Wigan that the build-up to the biggest day in their entire history should be overshadowed by discussion of Martinez’s future. The Spaniard believes success at Wembley would help alter the perceptions which surround the club from those outside of the DW Stadium. He added: “It would change the perception from the outside and I think that’s very, very important. “Internally we all know what an incredible achievement Wigan Athletic is. Wigan Athletic as a whole – from the chairman coming up with that vision and that idea – is an incredible story, but from the outside there’s nothing like winning titles and major titles to get that huge football respect and that will be very, very important for us. “Internally it’s just another step forward to what this football club is defying the odds to achieve and carry on achieving.” Wigan boss Roberto Martinez has no intention of allowing speculation over a summer move to Everton to get in the way of his side’s first FA Cup final.

Barcelona are set to be without Lionel Messi for around three weeks after he ruptured an adductor muscle in his right leg in the 1-1 draw at home to Atletico Madrid on Wednesday night.The Argentinian maestro appeared to suffer the injury after tussling for possession with Atletico defender Diego Godin and was replaced by Arda Turan with 58 minutes gone.Worse was to follow for Barca as Angel Correa then equalised for the visitors, jinking past Javier Mascherano and steering a shot past Marc-Andre ter Stegen and in off a post. The news about Messi was a further blow to Barcelona, who were unable to make any inroads into Real Madrid’s three-point lead at the top despite Ivan Rakitic heading them in front against Diego Simeone’s side in the 41st minute.The club confirmed the time-frame of Messi’s injury in a tweet from the club’s official account, and coach Luis Enrique told the Spanish media: “Losing Messi is a loss to us and a loss to football. With Leo we are stronger, but we are still strong without him.”The injury means Messi is set to miss LaLiga matches against Sporting Gijon and Celta Vigo plus a Champions League tie away to Borussia Monchengladbach in between.Enrique admitted it would be “difficult to protect” Messi with the games coming thick and fast for Barcelona and with Argentina no doubt desperate to have him involved in next month’s World Cup qualifiers.Enrique said Atletico had been a tough nut for his side to crack.“When there are 11 guys in the area, co-ordinated like that, it takes a lot out of us to break them down,” he said in quotes reported by Marca.“This result is not what we wanted, but we must move on.”There was also an injury for midfielder Sergio Busquets just before Messi suffered his problem, which will somewhat overshadow the ceremony to mark Busquets renewing his Barcelona contract until 2021 on Thursday.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegram
Comments Published on January 11, 2012 at 12:00 pm Contact Ryne: firstname.lastname@example.org Facebook Twitter Google+ Quentin Hillsman could only stare down at the podium as he tried to explain the loss. But the Syracuse head coach had the explanation right in front of him on the box score.The Orange shot a dismal 22 percent from the field in the first half a number that came back to haunt SU as it tried to mount a comeback in the second half.‘If you don’t come and compete for 40 minutes, you’re not going to win a basketball game in this league,’ Hillsman said. ‘When you look at the stat sheet and you shoot 22 percent in the first half and you shoot 48 percent in the second half, that’s just not putting two halves together.’Syracuse (12-6, 1-3 Big East) fell behind early after a brutal start. The Orange missed its first eight shots and never fully recovered in a 70-58 loss to St. John’s (11-6, 3-1 Big East) in front of 811 in the Carrier Dome on Wednesday night. Though the team found life behind SU center Kayla Alexander’s 21 second-half points, every time SU challenged the deficit, the Red Storm came through with an answer to regain momentum and hang on for the win.The poor shooting percentage Hillsman highlighted after the game was largely the result of Syracuse’s struggles to get on the board early. The crowd stood waiting for SU to make its first field goal of the game early on, but Alexander and forward Iasia Hemingway combined to miss six of the team’s first eight shots, bothered by St. John’s swarming double teams.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textEvery time Syracuse threw the ball to Alexander in the post, two — sometimes three — defenders were waiting for the center in the paint. Alexander had little room to operate and often had the ball stripped or her shot attempts blocked.SU didn’t make its first field goal until 5:27 into the game. But from there, Alexander showed how she would have to beat the relentless double teams. She caught the ball on the left block, kept the ball high above the two defenders and fired a quick pass to a cutting Carmen Tyson-Thomas for an easy layup.Still, Alexander rarely gained solid post position in the first 20 minutes. Oftentimes, she was pushed out into the corner to make her moves. The SU offense couldn’t get into its high-low set, and it showed as Alexander and Hemingway combined to go 0-of-9 from the field in the first half for three points.‘We felt like we were probably rushing with the double teams coming, not taking our time and just throwing it away,’ Alexander said.In the second half, the Orange tandem came to life to lead a comeback.Hemingway scored four points on tough drives to both sides of the basket to open the half and cut the deficit to nine. Then, Alexander scored 17 of SU’s next 20 points, getting the Orange within eight and seven after the Red Storm rebuilt its lead multiple times.After falling behind by 17 points more than four minutes into the second half, Alexander and Hemingway went to work to energize Syracuse. Hemingway drove sharply into the paint to her left, stopped and fired a jump pass to Alexander, who finished the layup to pull within 42-30.Shanee Williams jumped up off the bench and clapped enthusiastically, and Hillsman greeted his team with high fives on the court after calling a timeout. Syracuse felt a momentum shift as Alexander found her rhythm.It continued to grow after Hemingway and Alexander hooked up on the next possession to slice into the lead again. The SU offense was clicking, and the SJU double teams weren’t able to surround Alexander as effectively as the first half.‘I thought they made it a lot harder for us to double,’ SJU head coach Kim Barnes Arico said. ‘They went from the top and they really dug us out, and she got us so deep that by the time she got the ball, we couldn’t get the double over there.’After her free throw, Syracuse got within seven with less than eight minutes left, and Orange guard La’Shay Taft hit a 3 to cut the lead to four points.But St. John’s responded again with six straight free throws to increase its lead back to 10.A 3-pointer by SJU guard Eugenia McPherson iced the game for the Red Storm, giving it a 61-51 lead with less than two minutes to play.And Hillsman was left to lament his team’s poor start — leaving a hole too large to overcome — for another conference loss.‘We got to give two halves of effort to win these basketball games,’ Hillsman said. ‘You can’t come out and not play for the first seven or eight minutes and expect to win these basketball games.’email@example.com
On page 11 of the NCAA’s report on Syracuse University, it states that neither “the representative” nor the student-athletes he admittedly paid could “provide clear information about the kind of work they actually performed.”“Well I got paid through the YMCA of Oneida,” former Syracuse quarterback Perry Patterson said Monday in a Facebook message. “And I was on payroll for doing small jobs like mentoring a troubled teen, coaching and helping with basketball tournaments, like setting up the gym, coaching, etc.”Patterson was first identified by The Post-Standard as one of the four football players who were either paid by an account run by the representative, identified by The Post-Standard as Jeff Cornish, the former sports director at the Y, or one who interned there. According to the report, Cornish admittedly paid only three football players and two men’s basketball players. On Monday, Patterson admitted that he was indeed one of the three football players paid. Cornish paid a total of $8,335 to the former quarterback and four other student-athletes, according to the report.In the report, it states that any work associated with the “Back on Track” or other mentoring programs at the YMCA was volunteer work.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut that’s not how it was made out to be for Patterson.“Think we even signed like the normal tax papers you would sign when you start a new job,” Patterson said. But Patterson didn’t realize the future implications this “job” would have in the NCAA’s investigation into an entire university.“For me it was just a job,” he said. “No different than working for this hotel or at the car auction that some of us used to work at.”Patterson said he remembers being interviewed by who he believes was the NCAA in 2007 or 2008, but added that he didn’t recall anything coming from the interview.Patterson said that he liked Cornish and his son as people overall, but admitted he didn’t know what Cornish was into back then.

Facebook Twitter Google+ Backup goalie Maddi Welch’s first shutout of the year led Syracuse (5-7-4, 4-2-2 College Hockey America) to a 3-0 win against conference rival Rochester Institute of Technology (3-16-1, 1-6-1) at the Gene Polisseni Center in Rochester, New York.In just her second game of the season, Welch recorded 20 saves en route to her second career shutout.A day after SU had yet another late game collapse, causing head coach Paul Flanagan to cut his hand by hitting it in the locker room, the Orange sustained a lead after Dakota Derrer scored her first goal of the season in the second period.Syracuse’s co-points leaders factored in the win as forward Alysha Burriss tallied her fourth goal of the year, putting SU up 2-0 late in the third period. With just over a minute left in the game, Stephanie Grossi added an empty-net goal, giving her six goals on the year.Both Heather Schwarz and Allie Munroe tallied two assists on the game, as six total Orange players logged points. Syracuse outshot RIT, 26-20.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange committed five penalties and gave RIT 10 minutes of ice time with a skater advantage.

South Africa broke English hearts with a ruthless display of power rugby to seize their third Rugby World Cup in devastating fashion.Twenty two points from the boot of nerveless fly-half Handre Pollard and second-half tries from wingers Makazole Mapimpi and Cheslin Kolbe ground England into the Yokohama dirt on a horrible night for Eddie Jones’s men.England had trailed 12-6 at the interval after taking a hammering in the scrum and making a series of handling errors.And despite four penalties from captain Owen Farrell they never looked like closing that gap as the Springboks produced an outstanding display to match those of 1995 in Johannesburg and 2007 in Paris.Those were iconic moments for a nation besotted with rugby and when Siya Kolisi lifted the William Webb Ellis trophy aloft as the first black man to captain the Springboks they will have the final part of a triptych that will endure forever in the country’s collective memory.For England it was a chastening end to a campaign that had promised to end the 16-year wait for the World Cup glory.They were out-muscled, out-run and out-thought by a team transformed by the leadership of skipper Kolisi and the coaching of Rassie Erasmus.Never before has a team beaten in the group stages gone on to win the trophy, but this is a triumph to match that of the teams of Francois Pienaar and John Smit with a wider story that perhaps surpasses both.South Africa find their width as England stumbleEngland, so quick out of the blocks in their semi-final win over the All Blacks, were rocked in the opening exchanges as prop Kyle Sinckler was knocked out in an accidental collision and forced to leave the field before touching the ball.South Africa took that momentum and through a Pollard Garryowen-and-gather went deep into the English 22 before Willie le Roux knocked on as he carved an outside line down the right.England were rattled, throwing loose passes, Farrell isolated as he tried to mop up one from Billy Vunipola and Pollard banging over the resulting penalty for 3-0.The huge Springbok pack was making a mess of the English scrum and disrupting their line-out, but when the men in white made their first series of forays they won a breakdown penalty and Farrell levelled things up.Now it was the Springboks forced into changes, hooker Mbongeni Mbonambi off with concussion and lock Lood de Jager appearing to dislocate a shoulder.Yet England knocked on at the restart, had their scrum splintered and were behind again as Pollard slotted the penalty from the angle.Back they came. The forwards hammered away at the South African line after driving a line-out on the 22, Courtney Lawes and replacement Dan Cole both going close until Duane Vermeulen infringed and Farrell kicked the penalty for 6-6.The vast English support in the stands found their voice but the mistakes kept coming.Billy Vunipola was penalised for holding on and Pollard landed a beauty from 40m, and then Elliot Daly knocked on from Lukhanyo Am’s kick ahead, the scrum was mangled again and Pollard struck again from in front of the posts.It was a horrible half from Eddie Jones’ men, that 12-6 half-time deficit the biggest they had faced in the entire tournament.Springboks pummel England before cutting loose Cheslin Kolbe crossed six minutes from time for South Africa’s second trySouth Africa coach Erasmus threw replacement props Steven Kitshoff and Vincent Koch on just after the break and at their very first scrum they mangled England again.Pollard drilled over a beauty from just over halfway and at 15-6 England were staring into the abyss.The South African power was stopping their big runners dead and killing England at the breakdown and Jones rolled the dice, throwing Joe Marler into the front row and Henry Slade in at outside centre as Farrell took Ford’s place at fly-half.It initially appeared to work. England blew the Springbok scrum apart, Farrell lined up the penalty and it was a six-point game.Now Curry got to work, snaffling a breakdown penalty to give Farrell another shot, this time from 45m out wide, only for the kick to drift just wide of the right-hand post.What could have been 15-12 was suddenly 18-9 as South Africa set up a maul in midfield and England were caught offside for a penalty that Pollard was never going to miss.England had 22 minutes to save their World Cup and grabbed a lifeline from Farrell’s fourth penalty after Vermeulen held on from the restart.Luke Cowan-Dickie and Mark Wilson came on for Jamie George and Sam Underhill but with 14 minutes to go the killer blow came.South Africa went left down the blindside, Mapimpi kicked on and Am gathered before finding the winger on his outside shoulder for the first try the Springboks had scored in three World Cup finals.Pollard’s conversion from in front made it 25-12 and the stands were alive with green-shirted noise.And when the diminutive Kolbe stepped and accelerated through an exhausted rearguard in the final moments the Springboks could kick-start a Japanese party that will sweep through their homeland.
