MSOC : Syracuse defense stifles American throughout game

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ For most of Syracuse’s game against American, all Phil Boerger had to do was sit back in the goal and watch his defense stifle the Eagles’ scorers. It was perhaps the cleanest and sharpest defensive performance the Orange has put together in its four games this season.Except for one miscommunication, which had the potential to spell disaster, the Orange stripped American’s offense of all its scoring chances.‘I thought from Phil Boerger through our back four, I thought we defended well,’ SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. ‘I don’t think they created a ton of quality open chances. I think there was a couple of half chances. It was kind of a mistake for the goal.’Fortunately for the Orange, one mistake didn’t cost it the game.Syracuse’s strong defensive performance in its 2-1 overtime win limited American’s open looks, leading to just eight total shots from the Eagles’ attackers. Using a four-man backline to smother the Eagles’ three strong scorers up front, SU kept control for the entire first half. The ball hardly ever reached American’s offensive zone, and when it did, a Syracuse defender quickly got to the ball to knock it away.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange was simply faster, and more athletic than the Eagles in the first half. In the 17th minute, an American player was running up the right side of the field with a rare open look at the goal. But freshman Skylar Thomas blocked him just inside the box to kick the ball away. Thomas spun around him and cleared the ball.‘I think we kept the ball a little better than we have in past games,’ said Boerger, who only had to make six saves in the entire game. ‘In the first half, we did real well with that. But in the second half, we were kind of just kicking and running a little bit. I think, obviously if we have the ball, they’re not a threat.’The second half wasn’t quite as solid as the first. The Orange offense looked fatigued, leading to sloppier passes and poorer control of the ball. For Thomas, it also meant having a brief mental lapse that led to Syracuse giving up what was a crippling game-tying goal at the time.As the ball rolled toward Boerger in the SU net in the 83rd minute, the goalkeeper called for the ball to come through to him, with the intent of clearing it. But Thomas went after the ball anyway. He tried to kick it away from Eagles’ defender Jack Scott, but his attempt to steal the ball from Scott backfired. Thomas kicked it right to Scott — who now had an open goal in front of him — and he tied things up late in the second half.‘I just had a little mental lapse in the last five minutes, but luckily (Nick Roydhouse) made up for it,’ Thomas said. ‘When the ball came through, I thought I could kick it. As I was about to kick it, my keeper fell. He called for the ball.’While SU didn’t necessarily help itself by taking its foot off the accelerator in the second half and making a critical mistake, McIntyre said the Eagles ‘wrestled the play away’ from his team.Fortunately for Thomas and SU, Nick Roydhouse’s free kick in overtime erased any chance American had of ruining the Orange’s chance to get win No. 2.Syracuse now has two wins in its first four games, which is as many wins as it had in all of last season.That miscommunication aside, Syracuse’s young defense kept American from creating scoring opportunities. While there are still some things McIntyre said the entire team needs to improve upon, a game like this certainly raises the confidence level of his defense.For a team that’s looking to make winning a habit, that’s going to be an important factor in deciding how successful this team can be.‘We’re a new group. We’re a young group finding ways to win games,’ McIntyre said. ‘I think if you were the neutral today, I think you’d say we did enough to win the game. We’ll keep working on some things.’cjiseman@syr.educenter_img Published on September 11, 2011 at 12:00 pm Contact Chris: cjiseman@syr.edu | @chris_isemanlast_img read more

U.S. Banker Praises RCFI Initiative

first_imgThe operations manager of the U.S. Bank National Association has commended the Executive Governor of the Central Bank of Liberia (CBL), Dr. J. Mills Jones, for introducing the Rural Community Finance Institutions (RCFIs) in the country. Mr. Momodu Kemokai observed that the RCFI, the first of its kind established in the country through the economic empowerment initiated by Dr. Jones have begun showing positive impacts on the lives of rural dwellers.“I spent one week at each of the RCFIs in rural Liberia, interacting with the staff and people of those communities they serve. And in all honesty, all that I hear is commendations and praises for the establishment of the RCFI in some of the remotest parts of the country, Mr. Kemokai recounted.He said some politicians and opponents of the RCFI concept link the noble initiative to politics, but due to its popularity and embracing of the idea, it has created political advantage for Governor Jones should he decide to run for the presidency as it has been rumored.“From a public policy and social change perspective, I see it differently, because RCFIs now have created an economic impact on the rural communities in line with the government’s financial inclusion policy,” According to Mr. Kemokai, since the communities are brazenly (openly) receptive to the idea of the RCFIs, “then we should take politics out of the idea, because it is obvious that Governor Jones has shown leadership here.”“We all must do all we can to ensure that the existing RCFIs remain operational, and new ones must be established all over Liberia. We should all contribute and champion the survival of these rural financial establishments,” he urged.Mr. Kemokai was hired by CBL Administration as consultant through the Agriculture Cooperative Development Initiative/Volunteers in Oversees Assistance (ACDI/VOCA) to provide technical support to rural financial institutions. He is assigned to supplement the effort of the CBL to train 30 recruits to manage and operate rural banks, work with bank staff to increase the number of persons in rural communities with access to financial services as well as help increase the number of rural loans and support savings mobilization.ACDI/VOCA is a private, international development non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C, United States with the mission to promote economic opportunities for cooperatives, enterprises and communities through the innovative application of sound business practices.As evidenced by what the RCFIs have accomplished, according to Mr. Kemokai, the entities are conveniently and efficiently serving the rural communities in many ways where public servants no longer have to wait for a pay team from the Ministry of Finance or other banking services. In his final report, Mr. Kemokai commended the CBL management team and staff for embracing the venture by continuing to provide technical support and oversight to the RCFIs. He thanked Afriland Bank, which is providing training, operational, and technical support to them. He expressed the belief that Dr. Jones has proven that he understands the plights of the poor rural communities and that the way to lift them out of poverty is to give them access to financial and banking services.Currently, RCFIs receive government employees’ salary payments for disbursement through direct deposit from the Central Bank as well as provide international and local money transfers and even pay Liberia Electricity Bill.The U.S. banker recommended that CBL computerizes all RCFIs to ensure that the entire system is monitored where customers should be educated on the savings and logistical need for the RCFIs.As an additional empowerment tool, Mr. Kemokai said CBL should channel some of the microfinance loans through the RCFIs and develop a savings led approach to financial inclusion rather than giving loans.Michael Ogun, Deputy Director for Banking Regulations and Supervision of the CBL lauded Mr. Kemokai for his efforts to provide basic training to RCFI staff.He pledged that CBL will take into serious consideration recommendations put forth by Mr. Kemokai to ensure that RCFIs’ facilities are improved.David Parker, Chief of Party, ACDI/VOCA, expressed gratitude to CBL and Mr. Kemokai, also pledging to continuously work with them as partners to improve the lives of Liberians and their economy.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Huskies split back to back meetings with Navigators to finish regular season

first_imgFORT ST. JOHN B.C. – The question heading into this weekend for the Fort St. John Huskies was how did the team stack up against the NWJHL’s best with the playoffs just around the corner. Playing much improved hockey since the new year the Huskies got their answer as they salvaged a split of two games with the North Peace Navigators.The Huskies fell in the first game on Saturday by a score of 5-1. While the score may appear lopsided it was not an accurate representation of the contest played out.“The turning point was a stupid penalty in the second period,” Huskies assistant coach Todd Alexander said. “They went up 3-1 and we kind of sunk back a bit and didn’t have the same energy after that point. It’s not like we played a bad game. I thought we played a pretty good game but that was the turning point right there.”- Advertisement -Yesterday things went more the Huskies way as they came out with a 5-3 win. Aside from a sloppy start to the second period where the Navigators scored twice to erase a two goal deficit, Fort St. John again put forth a strong game and showed they can be contenders heading into the playoffs according to Alexander.“We can play with anybody in the league. That’s a really good hockey team over there; they’ve proved it all year long. That was a big game for them. That was first place on the line and we took that away from them. Going forward that’s big for our confidence because we needed to get a win like that to prove that we can play against a top tier team in this league,” he said.Playing two games in less than 24 hours the Huskies gave goaltender Brody Nelson a rest in favour of Logan Edwards. Edwards repaid the coaches faith with a number of big stops throughout on the way to a 38 save performance.Advertisement “We’ve talked about time and time again where Logan has had his ups and had his downs but tonight Logan was on. It’s been a testament to the work he’s put in. Since Brody’s been here he hasn’t had as many games as he was accustomed to at the start of the year but the kid doesn’t complain. He puts extra time in all the time and he’s first at the rink. It looked good on him to go get that win,” Alexander said.Scoring in Saturday’s game was Josh Robinson.Finding the back of the net in Sunday’s tilt for the Huskies were Jordan Harder (2), Cayle Bell, Ryan McDonald, and Kody Disher.Next for the team is the start of round one of the NWJHL playoffs against the Sexsmith Vipers. Dates for the series have not been finalized at this point, however it is expected game one will go down Thursday night at the North Peace Arena at 8 p.m.Advertisementlast_img read more
