Orange uses physicality to frustrate weekend opponents

first_img Published on October 17, 2010 at 12:00 pm Facebook Twitter Google+ Commentscenter_img Freshman defender Rachel Blum got tangled up and brought Seton Hall midfielder Ashley Clarke down to the ground in SU’s 0-0 tie with the Pirates Sunday. Clarke then retaliated, throwing a forearm that struck Blum in the face and drew a yellow card from the referee. The play reflected the tone of the weekend. During its two contests, Syracuse asserted itself as one of the most physical teams in the Big East. The Orange was able to stall and frustrate Rutgers and Seton Hall with intense challenges and brute strength. The style of play is just a part of the package when playing Syracuse. At least, that is what SU’s players profess. ‘We want to go in at our hardest and win every tackle,’ Blum said. ‘And that just comes along with it.’ With playoff implications going into the weekend, emotions were running high for the Orange. SU intended to outhustle and outwork its opponents, and a trademark physical style of play ensued.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text Brittany Anghel suffered a bloody nose early in Sunday’s contest when teammate Tina Romagnuolo inadvertently kneed the goalkeeper in the face. But Anghel knows the degree of aggressiveness her team displays is far from detrimental to her team. Borgstrom picked up a yellow card in the 84th minute of Sunday’s game when she collided with a Seton Hall midfielder. Borgstrom was going full speed to gain possession of the ball, but made too much contact. Borgstrom’s attitude is something head coach Phil Wheddon wants to see from all his players. The challenge may have been risky. It was far from conservative. ‘Everyone says we’re this physical team, but really we just ask the players to play hard,’ Wheddon said. ‘We want the players to not back down, and I don’t want them to back out of challenges.’ Sophomore Alyscha Mottershead explained teams have begun to recognize they are going to be in for a battle when they face SU. ‘I think our reputation in the Big East has caused other teams to come out harder and try to draw some fouls,’ Mottershead said. ‘I think that that is something that we may have had a reputation from the beginning of the season, and I guess we just have to keep it up with them knowing how we are going to come out.’ Wheddon has urged his team all season to match its opponents’ physicality, and his players have responded. But an unwillingness to allow opponents to get easy chances has resulted in numerous fouls and bookings. The Orange lead the Big East in fouls with 250. Although the number of fouls is not something Wheddon condones, he also frowns upon half-hearted challenges from his players. ‘We encourage our players to go in 100 percent with the intention of winning the ball,’ Wheddon said. ‘At times, the timing isn’t great, and we end up with a foul. That’s part of the game.’ Most of the Orange’s success this season has been because it has been able to bully teams and frustrate them. The Orange did just that this weekend. SU held a potent Rutgers offense, which had scored 24 goals entering the contest, at bay. SU would need just one goal to defeat the Scarlet Knights. Syracuse turned away Seton Hall on Sunday as well, but it had to settle for the tie. And it all comes back to that physical style of play. ‘I think we have a number of different personalities that are just a little bit harder than in the past,’ Wheddon said. ‘They take a little more of a physical risk, and it’s showing in our games.’ [email protected]last_img read more

Tendulkar’s wicket was special: Dockrell

first_imgSachin Tendulkar’s dream wicket in the ongoing World Cup is Irish teenager George Dockrell’s biggest scalp in his short career and the promising left-arm spinner said he will cherish that moment throughout his life and narrate the story to his kids.Dockrell got Tendulkar lbw for 38 in India’s five-wicket win over the minnows in a Group B match in Bangalore on Sunday.Later in the game, he even dismissed India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni, also leg before, but for the 18-year-old the master blaster’s wicket will always remain in the top of the list.”Definitely Sachin Tendulkar’s wicket is the best wicket I have ever taken in my career so far. I think I will never forget his prized wicket till the end of my career,” Dockrell told PTI in an interview.”I am a huge fan of Sachin Tendulkar. I love his batting.Probably, when I become old I will tell this to my children and inspire them,” he said.Interestingly, Dockrell would not have achieved the feat if he had stick to his childhood dream of becoming a fast bowler.”I always wanted to become a fast bowler and started as a left-arm seam bowler. But on a tour of Wales, my coach at the Leinster Cricket Club saw me bowl some spin at the nets and asked me to give it a go in the next match and from there on its just spin obviously.”At that time a lot of young batsmen found it difficult to play my spin and I was quite successful initially. Then on I seemed to develop quite well. I was able to hit consistently in the right areas and its going on since then,” said the Dublin left-arm orthodox bowler, who made his ODI debut for Ireland only last year.advertisementDockrell was also impressive for Ireland in the 2009 World Twenty20 following which Somerset snapped him for a two-year contract.Ask him who is his favourite spinner, pat came the reply, “Obviously, Daniel Vettori. He has much control and he is very cunning with his bowling.”In the spin department, he also looks up to India discard Murali Kartik with whom he shared the dressing room in Somerset last season.”I also admire Murali Kartik as a spinner. I saw a bit of him last season in Somerset. He also has amazing control,” Dockrell said.Asked whether Kartik gave him any special tips about how to bowl in Indian conditions, he said, “I haven’t spoken to him yet and last season was only my first season in Somerset but I hoping to interact with him more this season.”After giving India a tough fight in their last match, Ireland will lock horns with the West Indies at the PCA Stadium here on Friday and a win against the inconsistent Caribbeans will brighten their quarter-final hopes.Ireland, who are still to play the West Indies, South Africa and the Netherlands, are fifth in Group B and in the hunt for a last eight spot with the top four teams from both groups advancing through to the next round.”It (the West Indies) is a big game for us. After the win over England there is a lot of confidence in the team that we can beat any side,” Dockrell said.- With PTI inputslast_img read more

The Gallaghers most festive light display

first_imgThe light display started when the family use to live in town, close to Bert Ambrose school. Gallagher admits the substantial display at that time would expand out of his yard into a neighbouring park.  Four years ago when he purchased this new property, Gallagher said as soon as he looked at the property he knew it was perfect for his light display “the winding entrance would be the perfect ‘Candy Cane Lane”.To create the growing display Gallagher has purchased light displays from the States then found a Supplier in Edmonton and chooses to purchase second-hand lights. This is more meaningful as he uses his time in the summer to refurbish the lights by stripping the frames of their old incandescent lights, sanding and repainting the frames and then rewiring with new LED lights.  Gallagher says residential displays this big could not happen with the old incandescent light as the power usage would be too great.“LED technology uses 90 percent less energy,” said Gallagher yet he still upgraded to a 400 amp service to be able to power the over 65,000 lights in the display. Gallagher tells me he already has plans for next year and I could tell he is eager to continue to grow the size of the display.Gallagher has received help from his friend Bob Amon a local Electrician, who has donated a lot of his time to help install panels and all the underground wiring.  Gallagher’s youngest daughter also enjoys helping by going outside to work on and look at the lights.This year the Gallaghers offered a spot on the property to house a Red Kettle for the Salvation Army’s Red Kettle Campaign. Gallager admits he was surprised by the success that the kettles received.  About 500 vehicles passed through his property each night, the week before Christmas giving the Red Kettle great exposure. Gallagher was happy to do this by providing help to the community.Typically the lights of the display are turned off at midnight, Christmas Eve and Christmas Day they were left on all night and the family saw approx 1000 vehicles pass through the property on Christmas Eve alone. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – For the past 15 years Gallagher’s light display has been the fulfillment of a childhood dream and continues as the display grows in size every year.Many residents of the North Peace have come to look forward to and have created their own family traditions by visiting the Gallagher’s ‘Candy Cane Lane’. Set on their property which can be seen from the West Bypass, the light display is impressive and inspiring.Sean Gallagher shares “As a little kid I always loved Christmas more than the average person, I dreamed of doing this even as a little boy. I never dreamed it would be this big, its a real love for Christmas and it has never gone away.” There is still time to view the display as the lights will be turned off for the season on January 15th, 2019. To see the lights travel north on 100 Street past fish creek and taking a left onto the west bypass road, take a left onto the 244 Road for approx half a km and the property is on the left. You can also approach the property if you continue on the bypass and take a right onto the property. You get a different view of the display when approaching from either direction.last_img read more
