Syracuse discovers new scorers in rout of Colgate

first_img Published on August 31, 2013 at 12:10 am Contact Josh: [email protected] Questions about the sources of Syracuse’s goal-scoring production were silenced for at least one night. On Friday in Hamilton, N.Y., the No. 20 Orange had three different goal-scorers secure a 4-0 victory over Colgate in the team’s season opener.Syracuse (1-0) played without its five leading scorers from last season – losing three to graduation, one to injury, and one to transfer. But against the Raiders, new faces produced similar results. Three players — freshmen Alex Halis and Emil Ekblom and sophomore Noah Rhynhart — scored their first career goals.“It’s a great start,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “This is a very difficult place to come and we knew that. It’s great to come away with a win and a clean sheet.“We’ve got so many new faces, young guys, in the attacking third. It’s going to be important that they kind of share the load. And they did that tonight.”Syracuse and Colgate played a helter-skelter opening half. The pace moved quickly and several lead passes were sent too far. The field tilted back and forth and play became physical.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSU’s first scoring opportunity came on a header from Halis at the 16th minute. In the 19 minutes following Halis’ header, Colgate received four fouls and two yellow cards.That span was bookended by another header from Halis, this time one that eluded Colgate goalkeeper Liam Stapleton and gave the Orange a 1-0 lead.“Alex was very good, especially in the first half,” McIntyre said. “When he was finding space and picking the ball off he was very dynamic and was creating chances. He’s an exciting soccer player, and when he’s on, we’re on.”Syracuse held a 1-0 halftime lead.The Orange continued to dominate the scoring opportunities into the second half. Yet SU had just a one goal lead. In the 59th minute, Rhynhart and Ekblom came in for Halis and freshman Chris Nanco. Syracuse found an immediate spark.In the 69th minute, Rhynhart picked up a loose ball near the top of the box and sent a shot on net. The sophomore forward from Albany, N.Y., beat the Colgate keeper to give the Orange an insurance goal.A minute later, Ekblom received a through ball from Nick Perea and scored his first career goal.He scored his second of the game on a feed from fellow Norwegian and freshman Oyvind Alseth to put the game away.“There’s that beauty of youth and innocence sometimes. When you’re playing so many freshmen there’s this youthful exuberance, energy, and enthusiasm,” McIntyre said. “We’ve never talked about specific players filling specific goal-scoring responsibilities, it’s just playing.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

George Wallace once stood to block two Black students from entering in 1963.Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban said he supports his players’ focus on trying to “make things better in the future.” They’re joining a number of other college and professional sports teams who have marched or spoken out in the wake of police shootings including Jacob Blake in Kenosha, Wisconsin.Tailback Najee Harris posted the plans for Monday’s march on Twitter and teammates retweeted. Harris said they would march from the Mal Moore Athletics Facility at 4 p.m. and “meet at the schoolhouse door at Foster Auditorium.”“We want our voices to be heard as we strive to enact social change and rid our world of social injustices,” Harris wrote.In another post, he said: “We want all Alabama athletes to join us. This isn’t a fan day … this isn’t a football game … this is about lasting CHANGE!”Saban has arranged for a number of speakers to the team, including Condoleeza Rice, Tony Dungy, Stephen A. Smith, Joey Galloway and Charles Barkley.“And they all did a phenomenal job of trying to explain to players, how can we have a plan for change?” Saban said. “How can we make things better in the future? And I think that’s what our players have really been focused on, and I think that’ll be what they want to try to get out there, a message on Monday. And we’re very much in support of that.” Associated Press Television News Written By COMMENT LIVE TVcenter_img SUBSCRIBE TO US WATCH US LIVE First Published: 30th August, 2020 07:53 IST FOLLOW USlast_img read more
