Brendan Bomberry delivers No. 6 Syracuse in an 8-7 overtime thriller at No. 14 Johns Hopkins

first_img Published on March 18, 2017 at 6:28 pm Contact Matthew: | @MatthewGut21 BALTIMORE — After Ben Williams won the faceoff to start overtime, players huddled around the All-American specialist. He put Syracuse in position to win in sudden-death overtime against archrival Johns Hopkins. In the second-lowest scoring Syracuse-Johns Hopkins game since 1985, players welcomed any chance for a score.Sixty-one seconds later, junior midfielder Brendan Bomberry punched the winning score in from just outside the crease. In SU head coach John Desko’s 300th game, the player who hadn’t collected a point ended No. 6 Syracuse’s (5-1, 1-0 Atlantic Coast) fifth straight one-goal game, 8-7, over No. 14 Johns Hopkins (4-3) on Saturday afternoon at Homewood Field. With a defender on his tail, Bomberry caught a Sergio Salcido pass and, hardly pulling back his stick, pushed the ball past JHU goalie Gerald Logan.“Our guys drew slides and make it easy for me around the net,” Bomberry said. “If they don’t draw slides, I don’t get open.”Through six games, three game-winners by three different players illustrates the balance by which Syracuse’s offense thrives. In the first, a month ago against then-No. 12 Albany, Nick Mariano fired the game-winner with under two seconds on the clock. Against then-No. 9 Virginia two weeks ago, Salcido rifled the final score. On Saturday, Bomberry clinched the game, extending Syracuse’s streak to 45 consecutive wins when holding opponents to fewer than 10 goals.Midway through the season, SU hasn’t established a single go-to option. Jordan Evans has been inconsistent, Saturday included, when he had just one assist for an SU team that has scored fewer than 10 goals in back-to-back games. Yet Syracuse has resorted to a different player to bring magic to the offense late in games. Seven SU players have five goals or more, led by Bomberry’s 13 — none bigger than his last, which Nick Mariano set up with his no-look goal in the final minute of regulation.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAsked whom Hopkins keyed on in the final minutes, Blue Jays head coach Dave Pietramela shook his head. Junior midfielder Hunter Moreland snickered, then smirked as if to acknowledge SU’s diversified attack.“All of our guys can finish and make plays,” Bomberry said. “We have that many guys who can make plays and put the ball in the net for us.”The 56th all-time meeting between Syracuse and Johns Hopkins lacrosse started fitting enough. About 40 minutes before faceoff, a handful of players from both sides met at midfield for a pregame scuffle. Officials handed each side an unsportsmanlike penalty and both teams started a man down.Last year, Syracuse jumped out to a 4-0 lead, outshot JHU by 10 and picked up eight more ground balls. Yet the Orange committed 14 turnovers and blew its four-score lead on a rebound goal in the overtime heart-breaker for its first loss of 2016. The JHU loss started SU’s three-game losing skid.“Homewood,” senior attack Jordan Evans said before the season began, “that’s not a good memory going in there. We have the lead and give it up. It’s a good thing for us to go down there and make a statement.”Bomberry penned that statement in his first college game at Homewood. It buzzed as temperatures sat around 50 degrees. The JHU pep band played during stoppages. A steady hum came from the middle of the Johns Hopkins fan base all afternoon, no louder than in the final minutes of regulation. No quieter than after Bomberry’s blow to the Hopkins faithful.“You saw what happened when we slide too much,” Pietramala said. “The last two goals were off a slide. If you have a miscue on the interior, they find it.”The teams first met in 1921 with a 4-4 tie. Fifty-five meetings and nearly a century later, the units remain at the top of the sport. They’ve met each year since 1980. They’ve combined for 19 NCAA titles. For decades, Syracuse and Johns Hopkins have been the landing spots for the nation’s most prized recruits.Three of Syracuse’s 25 victories against Johns Hopkins have come with the national championship on the line. A single goal has now decided 14 of the last 29 meetings. In the most recent edition of college lacrosse’s most storied, intense rivalry, goals came at a premium. Syracuse held leads of 4-2, 5-4 and 6-4. Still, in a game during which no lead was safe, JHU inevitably fought back to pull within one. Then tie. Then take the lead, 7-6, before Mariano’s game-tying shot.This time, the Orange came out on top with the sight of Bomberry emerging from the crease, stick held high.

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from Syracuse’s 59-45 win over Pittsburgh

first_imgAfter going into double overtime with then-No. 23 Florida State in its last matchup, Syracuse (13-6, 2-4 Atlantic Coast) struggled to get much going early against Pittsburgh (8-11, 0-6). The teams combined to shoot just 38 percent in the first half as the Orange went into the break with a five-point advantage. Syracuse eventually managed to pull away late for a 59-45 win to snap its four-game losing streak.  Here are three reactions from the game.Feel it stillTyus Battle played a season-high 50 minutes in the Orange’s loss to the Seminoles. The game actually pushed his minutes per game average in ACC play to 41.2 — more than the standard 40-minute game.TV broadcasts claimed that Battle was under the weather heading into the game. Either way, Battle was noticeably a bit weaker to start Tuesday‘s game.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textOn one play he made a move to drive baseline, but his floater weakly fell off the side of the backboard, not even reaching the rim. Later, he had a wide-open look from deep. His 3-point attempt was on line but not strong enough, barely grazing the front of the rim and falling straight down. He missed his first six shots of the game and entered the break with just four points.Halftime seemed to get Battle a little bit back on track. He was five-of-eight from the field and scored seven points in the frame. His 3-pointer out of the under-eight media timeout seemed to inject life in the Orange, which went on to open up a 10-point edge.How longFreshman Panthers guard Parker Stewart came into the game averaging just 7.4 points per game, the fifth-highest mark on the team. He’d hit 30 3-pointers in 18 games, shooting at a 36 percent clip.Stewart hit two 3-pointers within the first five minutes of the game. By the end of the night, Stewart accounted for more than half of Pitt’s offense by himself, as he knocked down seven 3-pointers and had 23 points, both career highs.Although Syracuse has been solid on defense for most of the season, this was the third time that one player has made at seven 3-pointers in a game against the Orange.New rulesThrough the first four games of ACC play, freshman point guard Howard Washington was averaging two minutes per game. It seemed like his only way on the floor was to provide a very quick breather to Howard or Battle, or if either one was in foul trouble.But against FSU he played a career-high 24 minutes and Syracuse deployed its three-guard lineup for a good chunk of the first half.On Tuesday, Washington again checked into the game early in the first half, replacing Tyus Battle who sat for a few minutes. When Battle came back, Washington stayed on, with SU again giving its three-guard lineup a look.The Orange scored five quick points when Washington was in, and the Buffalo native added two steals. But the offense stalled with the three-guard lineup in, scoring no points. On one play, it appeared that both Howard and SU head coach Jim Boeheim were frustrated with Oshae Brissett not getting into the high post properly.Washington was subbed out with 7:22 left in the first half and didn’t play the rest of the game.

Barbados says Grantley Adams Airport Remains Closed Until June 30

first_img“If the happy circumstances arise that you have significant improvements, and we can feel confident that it is easy to reopen, then that decision will be taken, but until such time we are going to be very guarded on this matter, and go as fast as the data and the circumstances allow us to feel comfortable. He said that temperature testing and prior knowledge of travel history would be required, so that as much as possible persons exhibiting symptoms could be “sieved out”. Protocols were also needed for the appropriate levels of quarantine space for persons who may eventually test positive. “We all want the highest degree of safety that we can have. Nobody feels comfortable in reopening until you have been able to secure, first of all, the well-being of the people in your country and the workers, and secondly the visitors to the island,” he added. “I cannot give you a date on which the airlines will be returning. We have taken a position that the airport remains closed to commercial traffic until the 30th of next month,” Tourism and International Transport Minister, Kerrie Symmonds told a virtual news conference regarding the Grantley Adams International Airport. Symmonds said that domestic protocols also needed to be settled because while there was a common understanding at the regional level, the sovereign state would have to implement as best as possible its own standards and due diligence to minimize risk. “Going about it phase by phase and step by step gives us an opportunity to protect our people while giving us an opportunity to develop some economic activity which is absolutely critical to the same people as well,” Symmonds added. BRIDGETOWN, Barbados– Barbados says while its international airport remains closed to commercial traffic until June 30, this is not a guaranteed date for when airlines will resume flying to the island. “Bottom line is, the perfect scenario would be to have a vaccine … but that is several months away …. In the meantime, life has to go on and we will have to exist with this threat we call COVID-19, until this time comes. So, therefore our [approach] has to be about managing the risk, minimizing the risk and making sure that we can still do business, while we protect people as best as humanly possible,” Symmonds said. “I want to make it clear that we have not settled yet on any definitive course of action, not just in Barbados, but across the Caribbean and also with the airlines,” he said, adding that Prime Minister Mia Amor Mottley and her St. Lucian counterpart, Allen Chastanet, both chaired a “useful meeting” with all the airlines that service the region last week. Symmonds said that safety is a priority for Barbados, and any decision taken to reopen the sector will “not be date driven, but rather data driven. CMC Photo via LinkedIn “This is a discussion that is being had around the region. In the absence of that, we are going to have to rely on the airlines being very robust partners, in the context of that which they do, to make sure there is a contaminant free corridor between, for example, when you leave JFK and when you arrive in Barbados,” Symmonds added. These include possibly implementing a COVID-19 rapid test, which could be conducted on departure from the source market, on arrival to Barbados, or at both points if cost allows. Noting that regional protocols were also being examined, he said officials were looking at criteria with regard to the data, managing risk and safety protocols. Barbados, like other Caribbean Community (CARICOM) countries closed its borders in March in a bid to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) that has killed nearly 400,000 people and infected more than 4.5 million others worldwide. “The airlines understand what we are trying to achieve …. Their interest as well is safely. The take away from that meeting is that there is no competitive advantage that anybody has over the other in terms of being safe.last_img read more

Op-Ed: John Lewis Would Want Us To Vote And Vote Safely

first_imgToday, his legacy continues to come under attack and the House of Representatives playing defense, attempting in his name to restore and strengthen overturned provisions of the Voting Rights Act.  Now, more than ever, America needs us all engaged and giving our all to ensure every voter is heard. Thank you in advance for doing your part. To honor John Lewis and all our other heroes who have fought and bled for our freedoms over the years, we must all exercise our right to vote. Copyright Paul McDermott Photography In Florida, the Republican-controlled legislature has worked to suppress the vote, blocking expanded mail-in voting and frustrating the populace’s overwhelming vote to restore the civil rights of over a million former felons who have served their time and are therefore returning citizens. As I write, voting by mail is already underway for local primary and judicial elections on August 18 that are crucial to our future. The state has already missed the opportunity to protect citizens and poll workers by sending every voter a vote-by-mail ballot. center_img A tireless, fearless, life-long fighter for equality and voting rights, John Lewis told us: “We must ensure every vote and every voter counts.”  We honor and serve our community by voting and supporting our candidates of choice in every way possible. John Lewis would be proud to see us help the elderly and disabled get to a polling place and help anyone who might need assistance requesting a vote-by-mail ballot on the website.  With COVID-19 surging out of control, it is important that everyone request a vote-by-mail ballot before the August 8 deadline, to have the option of mailing or dropping off your ballot. The alternative is to vote very carefully in person during early voting from August 8-16, or on Election Day at your normal polling station. Joe Scott is a current Democratic candidate for Broward County Supervisor of Elections who credits the inspiration of John Lewis for encouraging him to make a difference and run for office.last_img read more

Chris Taylor’s struggles could change Dodgers’ left-field look – but not yet, Dave Roberts says

first_imgLEAN LEFTThe Dodgers will face a third consecutive left-handed starter Thursday at Wrigley Field. The Chicago Cubs plan to activate Jon Lester from the injured list and start him against the Dodgers (following on the heels of Jose Quintana and Cole Hamels in the first two games of the series).Related Articles The left-handed Alex Verdugo could become an option against left-handed pitching if Taylor continues to struggle, Roberts said. Verdugo has gone 3 for 7 with three extra-base hits (double, triple, home run) in his limited exposure against lefties this season.Taylor’s early struggles seem to be an extension of his spring training, when he batted .211 with 20 strikeouts in 57 at-bats (after leading the National League with 178 strikeouts last season). But Roberts still thinks Taylor deserves more time.“Yeah. I still think he’s a guy that’s done it for two years for us at this level,” Roberts said. “His preparedness, his work ethic, the makeup, what he does – for me, he’s going to get more leash because I believe in the person.”Taylor was a revelation in 2017, coming out of Triple-A to become a catalyst at the top of the Dodgers’ lineup. He hit .288 with an .850 OPS and 21 home runs that year. He has not replicated that since, slumping to .254 last year with a less impressive .775 OPS – and all those strikeouts.“There’s a mechanical piece that he’s kind of been tinkering with,” Roberts said. “Then you’re trying to figure out what approach you have. When you’re swinging through balls in the strike zone – mainly fastballs – that’s something where there’s something that clearly needs to be cleaned up. Then you try to speed up and then you’re swinging at the ball down below out of the zone. So he’s kind of in between a little bit for me.” Cody Bellinger homer gives Dodgers their first walkoff win of season Going into the matchup with Hamels, the Dodgers were hitting .271 with an .858 OPS against right-handed pitching but just .236 with a .767 OPS against left-handers. One of the front office’s goals during the offseason was to even those splits off and get a more consistently-performing offense.Roberts cited another statistic – wRC-plus (Weighted Runs Created Plus, which attempts to incorporate multiple factors) – as an indication the Dodgers are, at worst, middle of the pack among major-league teams against lefties. But he said it is far too soon to draw any conclusions.“We haven’t seen them enough,” he said. “To be honest with you, for me right now, that’s not even enough. For me to say we’re ninth (in wRC-plus), I don’t think it’s fair. We just haven’t seen them enough.”UP NEXTDodgers (RHP Ross Stripling, 1-1, 3.07 ERA) at Cubs (LHP Jon Lester, 1-0, 2.57 ERA), Thursday, 11:20 a.m., SportsNet LA (where available), 570 AM Dodgers hit seven home runs, sweep Colorado Rockies Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Errorcenter_img Dodgers’ Max Muncy trying to work his way out of slow start How Dodgers pitcher Ross Stripling topped the baseball podcast empire Fire danger is on Dave Roberts’ mind as Dodgers head to San Francisco CHICAGO — Left field was supposed to be the Dodgers’ only true platoon this season.So far, though, it has been a decidedly lopsided one. Joc Pederson is off to an excellent start against right-handed pitching with 10 home runs and a 1.091 OPS overall. But Chris Taylor has not upheld his end. He went into Wednesday’s game batting .161 with 18 strikeouts in 56 at-bats.If that continues, Dodgers manager Dave Roberts acknowledged starting Pederson against left-handed pitchers (despite his career .178 average and .569 OPS against lefties) might become a better option than having Taylor face them. Pederson has not started against a left-handed pitcher this season and did it only twice last season and 21 times since his rookie season in 2015.“Can it (happen)? Is it possible? Certainly,” Roberts said. “This is not, for me, enough runway for Chris based on what he’s done for us in the past. … It’s not nearly enough time for me to even broach that.”last_img read more

MLB hot stove: Red Sox ‘extremely unlikely’ to re-sign closer Craig Kimbrel, says team chairman

first_imgRIght hander Matt Barnes is one prospect to step in as the team’s closer in 2019. He is 20-14 with a 4.14 ERA in four-plus seasons in Boston’s bullpen. Ryan Brasier, Tyler Thornburg and perhaps other candidates could emerge this spring. Dustin Pedroia has second thoughts about decision to have knee surgery Never say never, but it doesn’t appear the Red Sox are looking to re-sign Kimbrel, who is a free agent and is still seeking a team. Kimbrel, a seven-time All-Star who saved 108 games for Boston the past three seasons, earned $13 million last year. He’s reportedly seeking a six-year contract worth more than $100 million. That would be a record for a closer, eclipsing the five-year, $86 million deal Aroldis Chapman signed with the Yankees in 2016.That’s a lot of money for a reliever, especially considering Red Sox stars such as Mookie Betts, Xander Bogaerts, Chris Sale and Rick Porcello will be eligible for free agency within the next couple of years. Boston already has the highest projected payroll in MLB for 2019, at $221 million, according to Spotrac.
