Kane clanger hands Sunderland draw

first_img Spurs boss Pochettino, who lost two and drew two of his four visits to the Stadium of Light with former club Southampton, looked set to leave with three points this time around after Christian Eriksen had fired the visitors into a 48th-minute lead. However, substitute Kane unwittingly turned Jordi Gomez’s 82nd-minute free-kick into his own net to hand the Black Cats a point on an afternoon when they were second-best for long periods. It was he who lifted the ball expertly into the path of Adebayor, whose sixth-minute volley was blocked bravely by Mannone, who also had to keep out a long-range effort from Chadli. As the half wore on, Spurs dominated possession with Connor Wickham sporadically causing problems on Sunderland’s rare forays forward, although clear-cut chances were few and far between. But Mannone needed the help of an upright to spare him further damage seven minutes before the break when Mousa Dembele’s 25-yard piledriver left him rooted to the spot. The second half started in much the same way as the first had with Spurs in the ascendancy, and they made it count within three minutes of the restart. Full-back Patrick van Aanholt’s attempted clearance from Chadli’s left-wing cross hit team-mate Wes Brown and Eriksen was on hand to stab the loose ball home from point-blank range. Sunderland fought back in concerted style once again and Rodwell saw a 55th-minute shot on the turn blocked by Kaboul, but Cattermole had to make a last-ditch challenge on Dier inside the box three minutes later when the slightest of miscalculations would have resulted in a penalty. Wickham was working hard to give the home side an out-ball and he did well to power his way past Vlad Chiriches and Rose on the right, only for Capoue to block his shot at source. Poyet turned to Emanuele Giaccherini and Will Buckley as the game entered its final 25 minutes, but it was Johnson who whistled a 25-yard effort just past Lloris’ left post three minutes later. Pochettino responded by sending on debutant Benjamin Stambouli for Chadli with 20 minutes remaining, but it was Erik Lamela who came closest to extending his side’s lead with a 75th-minute shot which came back off the crossbar. But the Black Cats equalised for a second time when Jordi Gomez’s free-kick hit fellow substitute Kane at the far post and looped into the net to hand the home side a point, and they could have won it at the death when Buckley scooped over from Van Aanholt’s pull-back. Tottenham had taken the lead after just two minutes through Nacer Chadli, but found themselves back level almost immediately through Adam Johnson’s fine solo effort in front of a crowd of 40,799. But Eriksen’s 48th-minute strike restored an advantage which looked to be decisive until Kane’s late misfortune. In a frenetic start to the game, Spurs might have been ahead with less than a minute gone when left-back Danny Rose, who had a successful loan spell on Wearside earlier in his career, collected Etienne Capoue’s pass and forced a solid save from Vito Mannone from a tight angle. However, the respite was temporary and the visitors went in front seconds later when, after Mannone was unable to hold Emmanuel Adebayor’s shot from the edge of the box, Chadli pounced on the rebound. But Sunderland’s response was instant and they restored parity in fine style after Sebastian Larsson picked out Johnson on the left. The winger cut inside and squirmed his way between Eric Dier and Capoue before curling a low shot past keeper Hugo Lloris and in off Younes Kaboul on the line. Tottenham were not to be tamed, however, and they set about restoring their advantage immediately with Eriksen tormenting the Black Cats as he exploited the space behind lone striker Adebayor. Lee Cattermole, Jack Rodwell and Larsson were simply unable to get anywhere near the Dane as he probed to find holes in the home rearguard. Tottenham boss Mauricio Pochettino was denied a first ever victory at Sunderland by Harry Kane’s own goal. Press Associationlast_img read more

DIGGING A HOLE: Multiple turnovers, miscues cost Syracuse in 17-10 loss to Minnesota

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Related Stories Minnesota leads Syracuse 7-3 at halftime in low-scoring affair filled with penaltiesOffensive struggles cost Syracuse in 17-10 loss to Minnesota Published on September 23, 2012 at 2:50 am Contact Ryne: rjgery@syr.educenter_img MINNEAPOLIS — Syracuse and Minnesota ran a combined 135 plays on Saturday night. They traded possession for 60 minutes and piled up more than 600 yards of total offense.But Orange players and coaches could describe their 17-10 loss to the Gophers with one word.“For me, it’s about turnovers,” SU offensive coordinator Nathaniel Hackett said. “The whole thing’s about turnovers.”Syracuse (1-3) turned the ball over four times against Minnesota (4-0) in front of a sold-out crowd of 50,805 at TCF Bank Stadium in Minneapolis and dropped its third game of the season heading into a bye week. The costly mistakes dominated the postgame discussion as the SU players and coaches tried to deal with another defeat.SU head coach Doug Marrone pointed to the turnovers as the cause for the loss. Hackett said the word 12 times, saying the miscues far outweighed any other issues his team had in the loss. Ryan Nassib said he and his teammates shot themselves in the foot, and Alec Lemon also said turnovers ruined SU’s ability to find any rhythm on offense.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“At the end of the day, you can’t have four turnovers,” Marrone said. “One obviously inside the 5, two inside the 25 going in. When you do those things, it’s very difficult to win a game.“For us to even be in the situation — an onside kick — to get the ball back is pretty unbelievable when you have four turnovers.”Fittingly, Syracuse’s night started with a turnover.On the Orange’s first play from scrimmage, Nassib dropped back and fired a bullet to the left sideline, releasing the ball before wide receiver Jarrod West even broke off on his route. By the time West turned his head, the ball had already snuck up on him, hit his hands and ricocheted behind him high in the air.Minnesota safety Cedric Thompson dove for the ball and scooped it up for an interception, giving the Gophers momentum and killing morale on the Syracuse sideline right away.“Honestly, what I think about, ‘Why do we deserve so much of this bad luck?’” Marrone said. “That’s the first thing that went through my mind and that’s the truth.”Syracuse’s luck didn’t get any better the rest of the way. An offense that was second in the nation in passing never got going, as three more turnovers followed.With Syracuse trailing 7-3 in the second quarter, Nassib zipped consecutive passes to West and Lemon to pick up a combined 27 yards and move the Orange down to the 31 yard line.But SU couldn’t keep the drive alive.On first-and-10 from the 31, Nassib stepped up to avoid an outside rush. Minnesota nose tackle Ra’Shede Hageman broke through Syracuse’s offensive line and collapsed the pocket, forcing a fumble that the Gophers recovered.“A lot of it, we shot ourselves in the foot,” Nassib said. “Some bad plays by myself that I wish I could have back.”The frustration only grew after the break.Minnesota expanded its lead to 14-3 after a beautifully executed 16-play, 87-yard drive to open the third quarter. Syracuse answered with a 13-play march down the field to the 2 yard line to set up first-and-goal.After Jerome Smith failed to score on two rushing attempts, the Orange went to the air on third down. Nassib was pressured again. And again, he turned the ball over.This time, he was drilled in the backfield, and his pass hung in the air and came down in the hands of linebacker Aaron Hill.“Red-zone turnovers, those are the worst,” Nassib said. “And it’s really hard, almost impossible to win a game with four turnovers.”Minnesota’s lead was safe and the sellout crowd was ignited after the second Nassib interception. But the Gophers offense didn’t close the door on an SU comeback.Syracuse got the ball back at the 49 yard line with 3:12 to play in the third quarter.A 19-yard completion to Lemon, followed by two rushes by Ashton Broyld, got the Orange down to the 23 yard line. Broyld got the call again and picked up the first down with a 2-yard gain, but he coughed it up before going down. Another Orange drive ended in misery.Any time the offense got rolling, it all came back to that one word for Hackett and the Syracuse offense.“Turnovers,” Hackett said. “It was just turnovers. It was the turnovers. You can’t turn the ball over four times. It’s that simple.” Commentslast_img read more

Crane: SU’s 1995 lacrosse team lives in history, 2020’s was never written

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on May 29, 2020 at 6:20 pmcenter_img The Daily Orange is a nonprofit newsroom that receives no funding from Syracuse University. Consider donating today to support our mission.The reunion was more than a year away, but Gavin MacLachlan, Jim Morrissey and a group of their 1995 Syracuse teammates started planning the celebration during a high school lacrosse game last May.It was simple. Syracuse’s 1995 national championship team would pile into Philadelphia bars and restaurants at the beginning of Championship Weekend. Most, if not all, of their roster would be there. And they realized a path similar to theirs, one that ended with a title game on Memorial Day, could unfold for Syracuse in 2020.“We were talking about the chances that, that Monday not only are we gonna be honored but we might be able to stand there and high-five the ‘Cuse team as they come back out for halftime,” MacLachlan said. As the 2020 season opened, that scenario seemed likely. The old Syracuse lacrosse, from the era of five national championships in eight seasons, was always seen as a contender for national titles. The new Syracuse lacrosse was in the midst of a 10-year title drought, yearning for a return to the top of college lacrosse.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOver the span of 25 years, the old Syracuse lacrosse faded and the new took its place. But the 40-something year olds from 1995 had a chance to be remembered. After the coronavirus pandemic shut down sports on March 12, Syracuse’s current group never earned that opportunity.Even if the Orange didn’t lose their 2020 season, an overlap with the 1995 team four days ago might not have happened. But, as current and former members of the Syracuse program said, their chances were good. Really good. So good that when anyone texted Morrissey about Syracuse’s current team, he typed only one response back: They’ve got the goods.As parents and fans leaned over the railings at SUNY Cortland last fall, they watched Syracuse build two- and four-goal leads over Denver with a pair of goals from Tucker Dordevic, returning from a season-long foot injury, and Chase Scanlan, the transfer from Loyola. That was supposed to happen. The goods.But Pioneers cut across Syracuse’s defense, weaving in and out of Nick Mellen, Brett Kennedy and Nick DiPietro. Porous coverage quickly became the Orange’s Achilles heel, a wound that only worsened when Mellen hobbled off with a leg injury in the season-opener. It was a stark difference from 1995, when Syracuse grouped together three All-American defenders — Ric Beardsley, Chad Smith and Hans Schmid — that made opposing midfielders hold their sticks up and stay back on transition runs. Their offensive capabilities posed threats, while still continuing to prevent goals at the other end.After losing two of its first four games, Syracuse’s 1995 national championship team won 11-straight to close the season. Courtesy of Jim MorrisseyA loss to Virginia in the 1994 final four fueled their offseason, and before fall-ball started and Casey Powell torched local opponents at the Pumpkin Stick-Out Tournament, former SU head coach Roy Simmons Sr. passed away on Aug. 19. Syracuse stitched two patches on their jerseys, one to symbolize the NCAA lacrosse tournaments’ 25th anniversary and one black, oval-shaped attachment above the heart to honor Simmons Sr. They became rallying points through the back-to-back losses in the Carrier Dome against Virginia and Johns Hopkins that opened the season, as well as the 11-straight wins that closed it.After the JHU loss, when then-head coach Roy Simmons Jr. was stuck in a hospital bed with pneumonia, Syracuse players awoke to an early-morning message: They needed to be at Coyne Field. “Ah shit, we’re gonna be running,” MacLachlan recalled thinking.Instead, Simmons Jr. emerged from the fog that hovered over the Orange. He’d checked himself out of the hospital, and told his players, “Guys, I’m OK, and I’m not worried about you because you’ll be OK. You won’t lose for the rest of the year, it just will not happen.” They were all being tested, he said, but they hadn’t failed yet.Syracuse’s 2020 team, in a way, is being tested right now. It’s a much longer test than the 1995 group or any team in Syracuse history’s dealt with, a 14-month examination questioning whether the same flair can return next February — or whenever the 2021 season happens.They’ve got the goods.- Jim Morrissey, former Syracuse lacrosse player, about the 2020 teamUntil that test is over, the current group’s message will remain hanging in midfielder Jamie Trimboli’s basement. Before the season, his father, Joe, created a sign with the Syracuse logo, the team’s “Head, Heart, Hustle” motto and a typed message across the top: “If you knew you couldn’t play tomorrow, how hard would you play today?”It was an idea Joe had for his son’s Euclid Ave. house, one shared with the other lacrosse seniors, as a reminder for them to not look back, years later, begging for one more game. The seniors glanced at it throughout the season, glanced at it as one of them, Mellen, dealt with the injury that shortened his.But then a global pandemic cut everyone’s season short. Practices have evaporated into Fortnite squads and Netflix binge-watching with girlfriends. When Joe helped Trimboli move out in March, he took the sign with him, redisplaying it in the basement of their Victor, New York home. “It was eerie when I saw that (sign) after,” Joe said. “Everything was on this year, the stars were aligned and everything was going so well, and then it gets pulled out from under us.”Jamie Trimboli (12) was the second-leading scorer on Syracuse’s 2020 team that started 5-0 and reached No. 1 in the rankings. Will Fudge | Staff PhotographerThree weeks ago, Rob Kavovit’s wife pulled out some of his Syracuse gear for a small 45th birthday celebration in Florida. One of the items was his framed jersey from his sophomore 1995 season, the year he scored seven goals in the final four and championship games. A group chat with teammates from that year has buzzed increasingly the last few days asking when they’ll reunite again, midfielder Roy Colsey said.The 2020 group didn’t have a chance to establish itself like the 1995 SU team did, with its winning streak that started after Simmons Jr.’s speech and continued into Championship Weekend against Virginia and Maryland. They didn’t have a chance to etch their legacy.It wasn’t their fault, but it won’t stop the what-ifs. Not next year, not the year after and certainly not in 25 years when there’s no 2020 national champion to honor.Andrew Crane is the sports editor at The Daily Orange, where his column appears occasionally.

Morgan Schneiderlin scores on debut as United beat Club America

first_imgManchester United new boy Morgan Schneiderlin scored on his debut as his side made a winning start to the International Champions Cup with a single goal victory over Club America at CenturyLink Field, Seattle.It took just five minutes for Schneiderlin – a £25m signing from Southampton – to make an impact for his new club as he climbed highest to head in a perfectly executed cross from Juan Mata.He was one of four new signings to make their debut with Memphis Depay and Matteo Darmian playing the first-half and Bastian Schweinsteiger one of 11players who emerged for the second period.But it was the France midfielder who was the brightest aspect for Louis van Gaal’s side on the day, looking cool and composed on the ball and tough in the tackle.Schweinsteiger was neat and tidy in midfield without making a real impact while it was a fairly quiet match for Dutch star Depay who failed to make an impression. Italian full-back Darmian was rarely troubled.It was the perfect start for United who are the reigning International Champions Cup champions but the result will not have meant too much to Van Gaal. He will have been satisfied with his team’s performance, though, especially with the likes of Schneiderlin and Mata who had particularly impressive displays as well as Sam Johnstone – who replaced David De Gea, who was rested as a precaution – in goal.–last_img read more
