Boland nets six in ice hockey Warriors’ win over Cazenovia

first_imgBoland quickly established himself against Cazenovia, notching a hat trick in the first two periods. It was needed, too, since the Lakers, still in search of its first win of the season, produced enough to only trail 5-3.Then the Warriors got away with three late unanswered goals, Boland remaining the main part of the attack as he pulled off the rare double hat trick, plus an assist.Most of the time, it was Nick Gagnon passing it to Boland as he notched five assists to go with a lone goal. Xavier Springer notched a goal and three assists, with Marco Palumbo getting two assists as Anthony Bentley earned a single assist.

The Quiet Corner

first_img Comments Published on October 30, 2014 at 12:37 am Contact Jacob: jmklinge@syr.edu | @Jacob_Klinger_ Facebook Twitter Google+ Brandon Reddish murmurs his jokes. If he has an observation about the team that he wants to share, he’ll tell his good friend, Syracuse nose tackle Eric Crume, to say it. He says he doesn’t really like to yell, much less talk.But in his hometown of Brooklyn, New York he’s known as “Bam.”Behind a childish face and a mouth that rarely opens, the 5-foot-10 Reddish leads a much-improved SU secondary. The senior also leads the Orange (3-5, 1-3 Atlantic Coast) in interceptions with two and his open-field tackling has stood out among a set of defensive backs that are routinely targeted by bubble screens.After battling through injury for much of last season, the soft-spoken cornerback is a recovered player with extra hours that used to be spent in treatment. Now, he has time to help teammates study film, quiz them as they do and comfort upset teammates.“He’s aware of everybody on the team and how their personalities are,” SU defensive said coordinator Chuck Bullough.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWhen Reddish goes back to Brooklyn, he greets his former Fort Hamilton volunteer assistant coach, Mikael Young, with the coach’s old nickname, “Money.”Young used to remind Reddish and his teammates to bulk up on what he calls the “poor man’s diet” of peanut butter and banana sandwiches with every meal.Young remembers Reddish not needing much help in high school, just smiling a lot and catching a lot of passes both as a receiver and a cornerback. He caught the game-tying touchdown in the 2010 Public School Athletic League championship game with three minutes to play against Wayne Williams’ Abraham Lincoln High School.“I don’t know how, Brandon Reddish wound up sneaking back there and a deep ball — there just wasn’t enough time left after they went for the two,” said Williams, SU’s junior nose tackle.Young still tells Reddish to work out more and bulk up. But at Syracuse, Reddish does his own share of coaching.“He’s always been the leader,” Bullough said. “Always.”The defensive coordinator said he had doubts about Reddish’s ability to keep up with the faster players in the ACC, but that they’ve been proven wrong. In Bullough’s first season last year, Reddish played hurt in a secondary that gave up 229.8 passing yards per game.In 2013, Reddish would arrive at Manley Field House early to hop in a cold tub to get his legs back underneath him and then get treatment during the day. Now Reddish can play at full strength, teaching without talking unless he really needs to.A week or two ago, he said, another SU defensive back reached out to him about studying film. So Reddish texted and FaceTimed his teammate as they watched film on iPads. Reddish quizzed him on each opponent’s play, asking him what he should do to counter each move by the other team. When the teammate got it wrong, Reddish corrected him.“If somebody’s having a problem,” Reddish said, “I come in with them no matter the time, I’m coming in to help them.”Senior strong safety Darius Kelly remembers visiting Syracuse in December of 2012 when he was in the process of transferring from Pima Community College (Arizona). Reddish was his host.He showed Kelly where he’d be living, took him to the Schine Student Center and they talked about Sbarro’s pizza, but otherwise Reddish didn’t say much.Just under two years later, Reddish is the same in front of Kelly on the field as he was in the food court. It’s not that Reddish is standoffish. He joins his defensive teammates for NBA 2K and Madden tournaments, passes on trips to the movies — “I might just be home chilling,” he said — and jokes with Kelly, but under his breath.He hears him on the field, though.With about five minutes left in the first quarter of SU’s 16-6 loss to Clemson on Saturday, Reddish cut in front of CU quarterback Cole Stoudt’s deep pass down the right side of the field and popped the ball up in front of the 6-foot-4 Mike Williams before snaring it from the wide receiver.Early in the second quarter against Clemson, Stoudt rolled to his right and picked out Adam Humphries, who Reddish promptly drilled, limiting the receiver to a 1-yard gain.Said Kelly: “He has a little wild side when he gets on field.” Related Stories For Syracuse’s Diabate and Reddish, Pinstripe Bowl represents homecominglast_img read more

Kell Brook defeats Michael Zerafa; calls out Amir Khan

first_imgKell Brook put an underwhelming but effective performance to defeat Michael Zerafa via unanimous decision in a WBA world super welterweight eliminator at the Fly DSA arena in Sheffield, United Kingdom.Brook improved to 38-2 (26 KOs) with the hard-fought 12 round battle as judges saw it in his favor by a wide margin with scores of 118-110, 119-109 and 117-111. Brook started fast in the first round and bloodied the nose of his Austrailian opponent behind a jab and a three-shot combination. However, Special K struggled to get into any kind of rhythm thereafter in what was a less than impressive performance in front of his hometown fans. Zerafa grew in confidence as the fight entered the later rounds but offered little that would have had the former IBF welterweight champion in trouble. WBA super-welterweight champion Jarrett Hurd (23-0 16 KOs) — who recently defeated Jason Welborn via a fourth-round knockout on Dec.1 — now has Brook as his mandatory defense, but Brook has his sights set on another fight.Join DAZN and watch Canelo Alvarez vs. Rocky Fielding on Dec. 15Speaking at the post fight press conference, Brook called out longtime rival Amir Khan to agree to the Battle of Britain/War of the Roses bout that the boxing fans in the United Kingdom have been demanding for the past five years.“I want to make it public, I will agree to 147 pounds and the rehydration for Khan,” Brook said regarding the fight and the weight issue that has been an obstacle in making the showdown final. “The time is now. Give the fans the fight they want. I’m on a mission in 2019.”Although the fight has been verbally agreed to, Khan has also been in talks with pound for pound star and WBO welterweight champion Terrence Crawford (34-0 25 KOs) for an early 2019 bout. “People have big expectations of Kell but for me he boxed well,” Brooks trainer John Fewkes said about his fighter’s performance. “He came through 12 rounds and the things we were working on worked. The reason he got hit too much was because he was trying too hard.”Team Brook acknowledged their fighter’s underwhelming performance, as did Matchroom Boxing promoter Eddie Hearn.”Kell knows that was below par,” he said. “If I was Amir Khan, I’d be on the phone now.”The co-main event between Josh Kelly (8-0, 6 KOs) vs. David Avanesyan (23-3-1, 11 KOs) for Kelly’s WBA International welterweight title was postponed due to Kelly falling ill the night before the fight. that bout was replaced with Ireland’s Jono Carroll taking on France’s Guillaume Frenois, which ended in a 114-114, 113-115 & 115-113 draw.

LSU football 2019: Schedule, roster, recruiting and three questions for Tigers

first_imgMORE: SN’s pre-preseason rankings for 2019The Tigers return some key players on both sides of the ball, including quarterback Joe Burrow and safety Grant Delpit, but did lose possibly the program’s best linebacker ever in Devin White, not to mention cornerback Greedy Williams. The talent the Tigers already have on the roster is enhanced by another excellent recruiting class. That said, LSU faces a stiff challenge in its schedule this season with trips to No. 1 Alabama and No. 6 Texas, plus home visits by No. 9 Florida, No. 16 Auburn and No. 11 Texas A&M.LSU is ranked No. 7 in Sporting News’ pre-preseason top 25 for 2019. The Tigers are no longer just trying to establish themselves under Orgeron — they can’t with this kind of schedule.Here’s a closer look at the Tigers heading into 2019:LSU football schedule 2019DateOpponentLocationAug. 31Georgia SouthernBaton Rouge, La.Sept. 7at No. 6 TexasAustin, TexasSept. 14Northwestern StateBaton Rouge, La.Sept. 21at VanderbiltNashville, Tenn.Sept. 28ByeOffOct. 5Utah StateBaton Rouge, La.Oct. 12No. 9 FloridaBaton Rouge, La.Oct. 19at Mississippi StateStarkville, Miss.Oct. 26No. 16 AuburnBaton Rouge, La.Nov. 2ByeOffNov. 9at No. 1 AlabamaTuscaloosa, Ala.Nov. 16at Ole MissOxford, Miss.Nov. 23ArkansasBaton Rouge, La.Nov. 30No. 11 Texas A&MBaton Rouge, La.Dec. 7SEC championshipAtlantaBold denotes SEC gameMORE: SEC 2019 primerLSU football recruiting 2019How tough is recruiting in the SEC? LSU finished with the No. 5 class in the nation, according to 247Sports’ Composite team rankings, and still had only the fourth-best class in conference. Not to say the Tigers didn’t have an incredible haul. The crown jewel of the Tigers’ class is Derek Stingley, the No. 1 cornerback in the country and No. 3 overall player. Grabbing the Baton Rouge-area recruit was a massive victory after the Tigers missed out on Patrick Surtain in 2018. The Tigers also got another pair of five-star players in running back John Emory Jr. (No. 2 RB, No. 13 overall) and outside linebacker Marcel Brooks (No. 2 OLB, No. 32 overall).LSU football roster 2019LSU’s football roster will be updated in the spring and fall here.MORE: Early predictions for 2019 seasonWhat to watch from LSU in 20191. That daunting scheduleLife in the SEC West is never easy: You have to play Alabama, Auburn, Texas A&M, all teams ranked in SN’s pre-preseason top 25. LSU, though, also has to play resurgent teams in Florida. LSU, to its credit, also scheduled a marquee game with Texas in Austin. It is one of the toughest schedules in the nation. Sporting News predicted the winner of the LSU-Texas game would finish the season with one loss. If the Tigers can grab an early win in Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium, they’ll be well on their way to showing the belong among the elite College Football Playoff contenders.2. Joe Burrow’s development LSU enters the fourth season of the Ed Orgeron era with more reason for hope than the Tigers have seen in several seasons.LSU went 10-3 in 2018, its first double-digit win season in five years. That, of course, was thanks to a 40-32 win over No. 7 UCF in the Fiesta Bowl. But this is life in the SEC, and the next challenge the Tigers face is to provide an even better encore. Burrow had a solid first season under center in 2018, completing just under 60 percent of his passes for 2,894 yards and 16 touchdowns to five interceptions. The highlight of his season was the four-touchdown, one-interception game against UCF, against whom he threw a career-high 394 yards. LSU hopes that will serve as a springboard into 2019: It likely won’t ask Burrow to sling the ball all over the field this season, but the Tigers should expect higher output in yards and touchdowns, along with increased efficiency, under new passing game coordinator Joe Brady. Burrow gets back his five top-leading receivers from last year. There’s no reason to expect he won’t be improved in his second year in Baton Rouge.3. How to replace top-end talentWhite, Williams and 1000-yard rusher Nick Brossette have all concluded their LSU careers. Who does LSU use to replace them? In the case of Brossette, at least, the case may be simple: Second-leading rusher Clyde Edwards-Helaire is back, and he can rotate with Emory in the rushing game. With Williams, it could be as simple as plugging in Stingley, an early enrollee who has drawn rave reviews from Orgeron on special teams so far. At linebacker, look for K’Lavon Chaisson to step into a big role after he was injured for pretty much the entirety of 2018. Patrick Queen is also a strong candidate to take over at linebacker as well.last_img read more

‘Test Iowa’ kits being processed twice at state lab

first_imgJOHNSTON — The State Hygienic Lab is still working to clear a backlog of COVID-19 tests. Governor Kim Reynolds says due to a high volume of tests and the double processing required for “Test Iowa” kits, it wasn’t possible to eliminate the backlog this weekend.“I want to again reassure Iowans that this is a short-term issue as we ramp up testing and processing,” Reynolds said this morning, “and complete the ‘Test Iowa’ validation process.”The governor said the backlog should be resolved today. The kits from Des Moines and Waterloo drive-through “Test Iowa” sites are being processed twice at the State Hygienic Lab — first through the system, the lab has been using since March and then through the machines Utah companies have supplied for “Test Iowa.” Last week, the state lab processed and reported more than 17,000 test results.“That’s a significant accomplishment and we’re working hard to improve the timeliness of processing and reporting results, so that Iowans know the results as soon as possible,” Reynolds said.A third “Test Iowa” site started operating this afternoon in Sioux City. The Centers for Disease Control must sign off on the State Hygienic Lab’s validation process before samples from the “Test Iowa” sites may be processed just once, through the “Test Iowa” machines.“Under normal circumstances, individuals should get their test results in approximately 72 hours,” Reynolds said during her daily news conference.State officials reported 534 Iowans have been notified that they have COVID-19 — for a total of more than 97-hundred positive cases since testing began in early March. Eighty-five percent of today’s new positive cases are in the 22 counties where all the governor’s limitations on businesses and public gatherings remain in place. State records indicate 389 Iowans were hospitalized on Sunday for treatment of COVID-19 and 93 of them were on ventilators.last_img read more

GLORYZAPPER TAKES HARD-FOUGHT HALF LENGTH WIN IN GRADE III, $100,000 LA WOMAN STAKES UNDER ELLIOTT; D’AMATO FILLY GETS 6 ½ FURLONGS IN 1:15.75

first_imgGLORYZAPPER TAKES HARD-FOUGHT HALF LENGTH WIN IN GRADE III, $100,000 LA WOMAN STAKES UNDER ELLIOTT; D’AMATO FILLY GETS 6 ½ FURLONGS IN 1:15.75 ARCADIA, Calif. (Oct. 9, 2016)–In a driving four-horse finish, Gloryzapper, with Stewart Elliott up, prevailed by a half length in Sunday’s Grade III, $100,000 LA Woman Stakes at Santa Anita.  Trained by Phil D’Amato, Gloryzapper, who went head and head for the lead with eventual third place finisher Perfect Pic throughout, got 6 ½ furlongs in 1:15.75.Breaking from post position five in a field of eight fillies and mares three and up, Gloryzapper and Perfect Pic set collective splits of 22.13, 45.10 and 1:09.41 as even money favorite Luminance, who broke slowly, could never get on terms with the dueling leaders and finished a close third.“She’s always a fighter, she always pushes on,” said D’Amato.  “Stewart did a great job.  The four (Luminance) broke a little slow, so Stewart put Gloryzapper into the race early and she fought everybody off.  I love her in this scenario.  When she has her head in front of the rest of the opposition, she love the fight…Passing horses, she’s just ok, but she loves to be in the mix and fight them off.”Off at 9-2, Gloryzapper paid $11.20, $5.60 and $3.80.Owned by Hebert Bloodstock, Andrew Leggio and Peter Peluso, the Kentucky-bred 4-year-old daughter of Ghostzapper, who came off an eighth place finish going 1 1/8 miles on turf in the Grade II John C. Mabee Stakes Sept. 4, notched her first stakes win in career start number eight.  She now has four overall wins and with the winner’s share of $60,000, she increased her earnings to $225,045.“She ran really well in her last out, but she just didn’t have that turn of foot on the grass, like grass horses do,” said Elliott.  “With the way she ran today…She got tested and she fought to win, so I could see the Breeders’ Cup as a possiblily.”(D’Amato indicated that the Grade I, $1 million Breeders’ Cup Filly & Mare Sprint, at Santa Anita on Nov. 5, is under consideration).Ridden by Mike Smith, Wild At Heart broke from the rail and sat just in behind Perfect Pic until the furlong pole.  At that point, “Perfect” drifted out a bit, which enabled Wild At Heart to surge late, but she had to settle for second, finishing a half length in front of Perfect Pic, who was ridden by Santiago Gonzalez.Off at 8-1, Wild At Heart paid $6.60 and $4.40Perfect Pic, who finished a head in front of Luminance, was off at 3-1 and paid $3.40 to show.Luminance, trained by Bob Baffert, came off a stirring second condition allowance win on July 27 and looked like the horse to beat in the LA Woman.“She broke a little slow, so I didn’t have the position I wanted to have early,” said Bejarano, who was aboard for the July 27 win.  “She tried really hard, but those fillies didn’t stop.”First post time on Monday, Columbus Day at Santa Anita, is at 12:30 p.m.  Admission gates open at 10:30 a.m.last_img read more

The game on Fridays and Mondays in the League is up to the judge

first_img“On television on Mondays it is one of the most accepted matches. The spectators are usually 50% fans of the two clubs that play and the remaining 50% football fans. If you overlap schedules you have to divide those fans who watch football because they like it between two games. In addition, when taking advantage of channels that is not the usual one there are many times that they do not find out. Putting different schedules gives the clubs greater visibility, “said Miguel Ángel Pérez Vera. “The games on Monday of last season there were more than 270,000 spectators on average and now there are only 14,000 in the sports programs broadcast at that time. There is a lot of room to grow and demand that is not being met now.”González Cueto, a lawyer for the Federation, pointed out Vera’s report as a “cluster of speculation“For his part, he only contributed the expert opinion of a part of the interview to Javier Tebas, president of LaLiga, in El Larguero where he spoke about the Coordination Agreement and the King Decree Law: “And if that agreement is not renewed, how would you do to put all the matches one after another, ten schedules? First you have to see if this agreement is not renewed. In case it is not renewed? I believe that Royal Decree Law 5/2015 allows us to put matches Friday and Monday, but hey, in the hypothetical case that the Royal Decree did not say so, it says so, as we would put them. I will have to remember that, we must be attentive to everything, in the contest of audiovisual rights, and I have said it in many media, but it is difficult for you to have so much memory for such technical issues, there is a new schedule that is Sunday at two in the afternoon. “Now, Judge Andrés Sánchez Magro, once he receives the conclusions of both parties (they have the deadline to send them in writing in 10-15 days) He will have to make the decision to grant LaLiga to play First matches on Fridays and Mondays or not. Last round between LaLiga and the Federation in court. The ‘Case Schedule’, led by Judge Sánchez Magro, has passed its second session in the Commercial Court No. 2. Both the employer and the federal entity contributed in the second session of this trial the reports of their experts so that it can be played or not First and Second matches on Fridays and Saturdays. Now, both parties have between 10 and 15 days to provide their conclusions in writing to the judge. Until the sentence issued by Sánchez Magro, the decision taken in the preview held in August is maintained, when in the injunction he decreed that it could be played on Fridays, but not on Mondays.Luis Borrel, the first of the experts to appear, stressed the importance of extending the time slots: “I understand that it does give advantage to other competitors that LaLiga cannot play on Fridays and Mondays. All leagues are growing more days a week. It has an impact on the impact National and international. You have a competitive damage. What is good for the operator is for the amateur, which is what demands it. “ “The tendency is to increase schedules, because operators are willing to give more. The Premier League does schedule games in the same time zone, “ He responded to the defense. “Expanding their schedules gives more value. This happens in all leagues. All have been expanding schedules and content. They complement the demand of operators and fans. If the amounts change there may be a lower return and it can damage credibility. If you reduce the matches the buyer can trust less for the next sale and reduce its value. In addition, for small teams, audiovisual rights is the great source of revenue, about 80%. ““In a Valencia-Atlético that was played on Monday there was better attendance than the average Mestalla had, “said Miguel Ángel Pérez Vera. This expert and worker of LaLiga explained to the judge how the schedules of each day are set: “We created a tool for the competition department that has more than 70 variables to maximize the schedules and that is for when the maximum possible assistance is given and of spectators. ” “Mondays is the day when there is the greatest television consumption. The day with the most viewers in front of the television during prime time. The Premier League is taking advantage of this season that we cannot put on Monday matches, “he continues.. In addition, he assured that the presence of matches of matches of the highest category does not negatively influence modest football: “The dispute between Second and Second B matches has no impact. Even in the first or second stop weeks, attendance at matches of Second B was lower. “last_img read more
