Defensive lapses in 1st half hamstring Syracuse in 2-1 loss to Louisville

first_imgLouisville pushed as the clock ticked under a minute in the first half. With the score knotted at one, a cross-field pass found its way to Mohamed Thiaw, the Cardinals’ top striker. Thiaw, somehow, found defenders switching to give him a one-on-one with Sondre Norheim. He beat Norheim and fired past the diving Hendrick Hilpert to give Louisville a one-goal lead.After the match, Syracuse head coach Ian McIntyre described that shot as the “dagger.” The defensive mental lapse with under a minute left in the first half ended up as the deciding factor as No. 17 Louisville (4-1-1, 1-1-0 Atlantic Coast) defeated No. 7 Syracuse (4-1-2, 0-1-1) Friday night at SU Soccer Stadium, 2-1. McIntyre has never beaten Louisville, and SU’s first loss at home since Oct. 17, 2015 came off a “lottery ball” corner kick, as goalkeeper Hendrik Hilpert described it. The second half Louisville played more reserved, but any counter attack was smothered by the Orange defense.“Our defense dominated throughout the game,” junior defender Kamal Miller said. “Just a few mistakes in the ACC, that’s the difference between a win and a loss.”Syracuse struck first with a quick goal off a corner kick, headed in by John-Austin Ricks. But Louisville answered with a corner kick of its own. The cross aired over the packed penalty area and ended up on the foot of Cody Cochran far post. Hilpert threw his hands up, but the ball sailed into the back of the net.Louisville’s offense pushed often in the first half. Through balls and across-the-field passes created 11 first-half shots for the Cardinals, though the Syracuse defense had an answer to almost every play. Mo Adams stole the ball multiple times and pushed transition. Other times Miller used his body to corral loose balls. An offensive push by UofL’s Adrien Cabon entered Syracuse’s penalty area. Adams and Miller both closed in on Cabon, stripping him of the ball.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOther times, Louisville got shots off but Hilpert was right there to make the diving stop. Before Louisville’s first goal, it had a free kick just outside the 18-yard mark. Thiaw, who “can be the best (forward) we play against,” McIntyre said, lined up for the kick. He fired a ball top shelf, but Hilpert shuffled right, stretched and punched the ball out of bounds.Switching off Thiaw and allowing him to go one-on-one with a defender was one of those lapses that doomed for the Orange. The forward, who last year finished second in the country in game-winning goals and scored the lone goal in a 1-0 Louisville win, scored again.“If a guy one minute before halftime gets in front of your goal,” Hilpert said, “eleven players on the field are responsible.”Coming out of the break, Louisville often settled when it gained possession and hung back, seemingly reluctant to push on offense. Syracuse countered with aggression.As the offense pushed upfield, the defense followed. The unit played close to the Louisville strikers and midfield that straggled around the center of the field. Anytime the Cardinals defense tried to play the ball out of pressure, Syracuse defenders were there to make the stops and keep the ball in Louisville’s defensive half.“We stepped it up,” Miller said of the team’s second-half play. “We took our mistakes on the chin and said it was time to man up.”Paired with Thiaw’s exit with an injury 63 minutes in and a more aggressive defensive approach, Syracuse limited the Cardinals to just one shot. Though, Thiaw returned less than 20 minutes after he exited.Despite Louisville playing more relaxed and focusing on defense rather than offense, SU stopped any attempts at counters. Despite boasting the best offensive team SU has faced thus far, Hilpert said, the Orange stood strong in the second half.“The damage had been done,” McIntyre said.

Ilorin Youth Games Feat Excites Gov. Emmanuel

first_imgAkwa Ibom State Commissioner for Youth and Sports, Monday Ebong Uko, has expressed appreciations to Governor Udom Emmanuel for making it possible for the state to emerge second out of the 34 states and Abuja that participated in the National Youth Games in Ilorin. Akwa Ibom athletes won 16 gold, 15 silver and 15 bronze medalsSpeaking yesterday, the commissioner said: “I knew that we were going to do well in Ilorin, but not this well – I am happy that we acted on Governor Emmanuel’s directive that we organise a Youth Sports Festival for primary schools and colleges in Akwa Ibom and it threw up a lot of potentials in all the sports.” Also, Mr. Paul Bassey, the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Sports, who was in Ilorin said: “That was one occasion where it felt good to be an Akwa Ibomite.”Coming on the heels of the very successful maiden Akwa Ibom Youth Sports Festival in Uyo, the Akwa Ibom Chief Executive who is the progenitor of the youth sports fiesta is happy that the state is already reaping the fruits of its grassroots sports development.From fourth position last year to second this year, the state has made remarkable progress and by National Sports Commission statistics, Akwa Ibom is the “greatest mover” this year placing second out of the 34 states and Abuja that participated at the Games in Ilorin.The state won two of the three track events that were reserved for the closing ceremony of the Games last Saturday.Akwa Ibom was an all round competitor as the state’s medals came from a variety of sports. The state won gold (s) in weightlifting, tennis, boxing, scrabble, chess, track and field, wrestling etc. and were in the finals of nearly all the sports.”According to Bassey, the seeming vacuum that has existed in the sports community of a state that before now produced world-class athletes and administrators, “prompted Governor Udom to institute a return to the grassroots (schools and colleges) for the discovery and training of budding talents as a foundation for a solid sports future for the state.“The revolution is on, thanks to Governor Emmanuel and the Sports Commissioner whom we call “Sports Joseph” for his uncanny translation and implementation of the governor’s sports dreams and aspirations,” concludes Bassey.Just last week, Governor Udom Emmanuel facilitated the travelling abroad of the junior national and African sprints queen, Aniekeme Alphonsus, who has gained a collegiate scholarship in the United States of America.Share this:FacebookRedditTwitterPrintPinterestEmailWhatsAppSkypeLinkedInTumblrPocketTelegramlast_img read more

Clippers’ preparation seeks to incorporate new guys, new experience

first_img What the Clippers are saying the day after Luka Doncic’s game-winner tied series, 2-2 Who needs an arena full of fans when you’ve got Pat Bev in the building?Clippers guard Reggie Jackson said Friday that while he and his teammates prepare to get back to competing, they’re also readying themselves for the experience of playing NBA basketball without a crowd when scrimmages begin inside the NBA’s Bubble in Orlando, Florida.“For the most part, we know the statement is true now that we’re all that we’ve got, so we have to rely on each other,” Jackson said via Zoom before practice. “We have to bring energy for each other. We’re constantly talking about it. I think guys are bonding more, and I think each team is getting ready for that challenge.”That’s where Patrick Beverley comes in. And it turns out, Mr. 94 Feet also is Mr. 24-7 when it comes to bringing the energy. Game 4 photos: Luka Doncic, Mavs shock Clippers in overtime “Pat Bev, shoot, he’s one of the funnier stories,” Jackson said of the team’s initial quarantine period in the Bubble. “We’re all locked up … can’t leave your room, but it’s probably 2 a.m. and all we get is a ‘Yoooo! Yoooo!’ Everybody is like, what is going on?“Bev is just yelling through walls, making sure everybody is good. It’s the first day, he’s just checking … that made the first part of the 24 hours of lockdown even better, just knowing that your teammates were there with you.“That’s just something very simple, but the guy is constant energy.”Spirits are high, but the on-court conditioning and continuity is up and down, said Coach Doc Rivers, who again declined to discuss when Marcus Morris Sr., Landry Shamet or Ivica Zubac are expected to join the team in Orlando.“I go back and forth,” Rivers said. “There’s days I think our conditioning is great, and it is, and then there’s days I don’t know if our conditioning is ready for an NBA game. Practice-wise our guys are hanging in there doing great. “We have refs, right, and they’re 12-minute quarters,” Rivers said. “I think we made a mistake by calling them scrimmages … I typically try a lot of stuff in those games just because it’s a different opponent.“It’s pretty much we know who we want to play, but as far as the rotations and the minutes, I think that’s still a little bit in flux. We’ll see. You kind of decide on what you’re going to do going by how you’re practicing. If you think your team is practicing extremely well and they’ve done it for a long time, then you’ll probably be less in the preseason games. If you think you need more scrimmaging, you’ll probably play more, so that’s how I’m going to look at it.” Clippers hope they can play to their capabilities, quell Mavericks’ momentum center_img Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error For Lakers’ LeBron James, Jacob Blake’s shooting is bigger issue than a big Game 4 victory “Continuity will take time. You can see that. That’s been the thing that I would say — especially with us being a new team together (that) made a lot of different trades right before the trade deadline, you can see we need to be in the gym.”In the weeks — and days — before the NBA suspended play, the Clippers added Morris via trade and signed Reggie Jackson and Joakim Noah as free agents. Morris played 12 games with the team; Jackson appeared in nine and Noah has yet to take the floor in a Clippers jersey.So after a four-month break because of the coronavirus, the Clippers are trying to making good use of their time together before they’re scheduled to tip off again in earnest against the Lakers on July 30 at Walt Disney World.The Clippers’ preparation also is set to include three scrimmages — what Rivers is calling a “preseason games” — starting July 22 against the Orlando Magic. The 21st-year head coach said he expects those to prove valuable in plotting a course for the playoffs.Related Articles Clippers’ Paul George: ‘If I make shots, this series could be a little different’ last_img read more
