first_imgWith four races to go, the Warriors trailed WG 65-61, but went in front when Jessica Testone, Sophia Russo, Kaitlyn Thompson and Delaney Gellert swam the 200-yard freestyle relay in one minute, 48.58 seconds to beat out the Wildcats’ 1:50.72.Thompson returned to the pool minutes later and won the 100 backstroke in 1:08.62. Then Delaney Gellert, in 1:14.58, prevailed in the 100 breaststroke and to cap it off, Thompson, joined by Domenique DeRuijter, Delaney Gellert and Emerson Gellert, was first in the 400 freestyle relay in 4:07.92.Earlier in the meet, Delaney Gellert had finished first in the 200 individual medley in 2:23.91, with Testone beating the field in the 100 butterfly in 1:07.57. Liverpool had also gone 1-2 in diving as Sophia Recuparo, with 202.70 points, beat out Macy Moore (174.00). All through the fall and winter of the 2019-20 school year, various sports teams from Liverpool would have to make their home elsewhere as the school’s athletic complex undergoes a full makeover.In the case of the girls swimming Warriors, that meant going nearly 20 miles north, to Fulton’s Granby Elementary School, to host meets against a tough slate of foes inside and outside the Salt City Athletic Conference.The first of these contests proved successful, though, as Liverpool took on West Genesee last Tuesday night and, with a late surge, defeated the Wildcats 105-81 to improve to 2-1 on the season.

In the 200 freestyle relay, Gucciardi, Myers, Alayna Harbaugh and Cassidy Svoboda prevailed in 1:49.05.Harbaugh took second in the 50 and 100 freestyle, with Devinney runner-up in the 200 IM and 100 backstroke. Wood did win the 100 breaststroke in 1:18.56 as Thorne scored 170.0 points in diving.Now the Northstars could look ahead to two tough meets this week, welcoming both Fayetteville-Manlius and Jamesville-DeWitt to the Le Moyne pool. Before returning to Fulton on Oct. 2 to face Jamesville-DeWitt, Liverpool would go to New Hartford this Tuesdaylast_img read more

first_imgThe sharp pass skipped hard over the turf, and seemed to be headed out of bounds across the end line until it found Liz Sack’s outstretched stick.Sack dove, fully extending her 5 feet 7 inches. The goalkeeper, who had stepped up seemingly to intercept the ball, turned her head and flinched.  Sack pushed the deflection sailing over the goalie’s right shoulder and down into the net.Sack’s goal increased its lead to 3-0 and gave Syracuse room to breathe. Before her play with 17:03 left in the game, the Orange had 20 shots and just two goals to show for it.“It was nice to add a cushion,” Sack said. “That let us … play with more control.”Syracuse, which has been a second-half team all season, struggled mightily in the first half and still had trouble finding an offensive spark for the majority of the second. But on a cold, windy day at J.S. Coyne Stadium, the No. 2 Orange (10-0, 3-0 Atlantic Coast) attacked enough times to eventually breakthrough for a 5-0 victory over Monmouth (3-8). The Orange generated 29 shots and 12 penalty corners, but struggled to finish early on. The low shooting percentage led head coach Ange Bradley to shuffle up her starting lineup in the second half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“The starting group wasn’t getting it done,” Bradley said. Emma Russell, Alma Fenne and Emma Lamison— responsible for nearly 50 percent of the Orange’s goals this season — stood on the sidelines near the bench, watching as play resumed.The Orange started Sack, freshman Emma Tufts and sophomore Caroline Cady instead.“That’s what competition breeds and people have to step up and play a little differently,” Bradley said.Until Sack’s goal, the new line didn’t fix Syracuse’s problems.The Orange would force a turnover near midfield or near its own zone, push up the field, attack from the sideline in and get a shot or force a penalty corner. Then, Monmouth goalie Christen Piersanti either made an impressive diving save, usually with her blocker, or the Orange’s shot would roll just wide, usually left.There were frustrations on the field as Syracuse’s struggles continued.Late in the first half, back Zoe Wilson tried to reverse the ball and send it up the field to Fenne, but as Wilson ran away from her defender and tried to create a better angle, Fenne ran up and toward the defense.“Stop running away from me!” Wilson shouted through her mouth guard before the pass was intercepted.On penalty corners, Monmouth rushed out of the net in time to block the Orange’s shot either with a stick or a leg. If it led to another penalty corner, Monmouth fought that off too.Syracuse converted just two of 12 corner chances.“We had a lot of shots that just missed, like, 10 centimeters by the post,” Roos Weers said. “These are always really difficult games. You go into the game knowing in the back of your head that you’re maybe a little bit better than the opposition.”Rarely was the ball in Syracuse’s defensive third and even then the Orange cleared the ball with ease. SU allowed just one corner. Monmouth didn’t manage a shot — its only shot of the game — until 41:43. Syracuse goalie Jess Jecko dismissed the ball with a kick.Though the Orange’s offense played ineffectively for most of the contest, just having possession seemed enough to stop the Hawks.“In those type of games you’d like to get up a goal in the first half so you can choose when to attack,” Russell said. “It was frustrating at times but we didn’t let it affect our play.“The main thing is that we got the win.” Comments Published on October 2, 2015 at 8:29 pm Contact Sam: sjfortie@syr.edu | @Sam4TR Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

first_imgThe Bengals put together one of the worst offensive showings in recent “Monday Night Football” history, limping to a 27-3 blowout loss to the Steelers in Pittsburgh.Cincinnati’s only points of the game came on a 28-yard field goal by Randy Bullock on the final down of a four-play drive in the first quarter. It was that kind of night for quarterback Andy Dalton and a once-potent roster that has regressed each year since 2015. Poor offensive line play and untimely penalties were the root causes of the team’s struggles. Dalton went down a whopping eight times for a loss of 69 yards against a relentless Pittsburgh defense. The 0-4 Bengals were also flagged eight times for 60 yards, pinning the Bengals into even deeper holes.A few more stats to tag along: Cincinnati averaged 2.3 yards per passing attempt (lowest in the NFL this season), 3.8 yards per rushing attempt, and went 0-for-3 in its red zone trips.Somehow, though, the Bengals won the time-of-possession battle, edging the Steelers by 28 seconds. So maybe the evening wasn’t a complete loss. MORE: Bengals vs. Steelers final score: Steelers defense shuts down Bengals in winTo put into context just how bad Cincinnati was offensively, we have to do some digging into recent “Monday Night Football” history. Since 2000, just five out of 650 teams playing on Monday night recorded three or fewer points while averaging three or fewer yards-per-play. The Bengals, of course, tallied three points against the Steelers and averaged 2.7 yards per play.Cincinnati’s drive chart from the dismal performance is below.Drive ResultDrive LengthPunt7 plays, 33 yardsField goal4 plays, 5 yardsPunt3 plays, -1 yardPunt3 plays, -5 yardsFumble9 plays, 46 yardsEnd of half3 plays, 17 yardsPunt3 plays, -11 yardsPunt6 plays, 2 yardsInterception16 plays, 67 yardsDowns11 plays, 19 yardsThe Bengals had as many drives totalling negative yards (three) as they did eclipsing 20 yards (three). Even their three “lengthy” drives resulted in a punt, fumble and interception. Only two drives went longer than eight plays; those possessions were the final two of the game and resulted in an interception and turnover on downs.last_img read more

first_imgIf you’ve played Valve’s fun and funny first-person shooter Team Fortress 2, you’ll recognize the subject of the video above: it’s a level 1 sentry gun, hand-crafted by designers at WETA Workshop and sent to the staff at Valve, makers of the game. Team Fortress 2 has been one of the most popular Steam games for well over three years now, and fans will get a laugh out of this. Even if you’re not a fan, you’ve got to appreciate the workmanship that went into it. The sentry gun can track movements and follow you as you move across its path, and it lights up and makes sounds like it’s firing when it has a lock on you. When idle, it’ll move from side to side, looking for targets. Granted, a level 1 is nothing a Pyro can’t make quick work of -it would behoove the engineer that built it to upgrade to level 3. [via UberGizmo]last_img read more
