Syracuse erases 1-goal deficit after Bono’s blunder to defeat Penn State, advance to 3rd round of NCAA tournament

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ For almost 14 minutes in the second half, Syracuse’s historic season was on the verge of ending because of a blunder from its all-conference goalkeeper.Alex Bono’s botched distribution found the feet of Penn State forward Connor Maloney, who was fouled by SU defender Tyler Hilliard and slotted the penalty kick dead center as Bono dove left to give the Nittany Lions a one-goal lead with half an hour left.But then the tide turned.“We looked up with 30 minutes, left and said, ‘Yeah, we’ve got this in the bag,’” SU defender Jordan Murrell said.The Orange pushed numbers forward and peppered PSU goalie Andrew Wolverton, who bent, but didn’t break. After multiple heroic saves from the PSU keeper, SU was finally able to break through.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textLate goals from forward Emil Ekblom and right winger Oyvind Alseth pushed the hosts out in front and ninth-seeded Syracuse (16-3-1) squeaked out a 2-1 victory over Penn State (13-6-1) in the second round of the NCAA tournament in front of 1,213 fans at SU Soccer Stadium on Sunday afternoon.“All season long, when we’ve given up goals we’ve been really quick to get back on the front foot and try and go find our equalizer,” Bono said. “That’s how we’ve been all season and that’s how we’re going to keep being.”Temporarily being on the back foot was a far cry from how the game began, though. Syracuse assaulted the Penn State goal in the first half, as forward Alex Halis, midfielder Liam Callahan and Alseth all had point-blank chances denied by either the post or Wolverton’s fingertips.The head-in-hands position that Bono assumed after his error was the same one SU’s forwards and midfielders often had throughout the opening 45 minutes despite being on the front foot. Frustration reigned throughout the 11 players on the field and the fans in the bleachers, as the home contingent screamed substitution recommendations at McIntyre and at Alseth for not crossing the ball soon enough.Then Bono lost control of the ball after getting caught in between holding onto it and distributing to Hilliard. Maloney put the Nittany Lions ahead early in the second frame and the tension came to a peak.After Bono guessed incorrectly on the penalty kick, he grabbed his water bottle and threw it against the left post as water spurted out. The Atlantic Coast Conference Defensive Player of the Year stood with a blank stare, looking out at the field as his team prepared to kick off down one.“I was very calm,” McIntyre said sarcastically. “No, we were on top of the game at the time and then it was kind of a flukey play and all of a sudden they’ve got a penalty kick.”Syracuse rarely conceded first before Sunday, and would be tasked with climbing out of a hole for only the fourth time this season.When Alseth threaded a perfect through ball to Ekblom on the right edge of the box and the sophomore slotted it bottom left, that was the first step.“It felt like the world got lifted off my shoulders for a second,” Bono said.Then when an intended cross off the foot of Alseth was muffed by Wolverton and ended up over the line, Syracuse was no longer desperate. Instead, elated.Alseth said it wasn’t meant to be a shot, and that he just got lucky.But on a day when the Orange couldn’t convert routine opportunities, it had to be the benefactor of a stroke of chance.Said McIntyre: “You need a little bit of luck. We created our own luck tonight.” Comments Published on November 23, 2014 at 6:41 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidmanlast_img read more

Tua Tagovailoa doesn’t need Dan Marino’s number to dominate NFL jersey sales

first_imgFor the Audience of 1🙏🏽 pic.twitter.com/kZYXaYVD1R— Tua. T 🇦🇸 (@Tua) May 6, 2020As for Tagovailoa, his jersey sales confirm his status as the most intriguing draft selection of 2020. His new number matches his attitude about a fresh start in Miami.”For me, I’m not too worried about what number I have,” said Tagovailoa, who wore No. 13 at Alabama. “I understand No. 13 is retired, and it should be. Dan Marino, he’s the GOAT. He’s like the mayor out there, and I have much respect for him.”Speaking of GOATs, it’s fitting that Tagovailoa has an edge over Brady, even in an off-field category. After years of dealing with Brady in the AFC East, the Dolphins will take any small victory over him they can get. Charles Barkley can relax. There is no need to call Dan Marino, as the basketball great suggests, and ask the Hall of Fame quarterback to let Tua Tagovailoa wear the No. 13 the Dolphins retired years ago in honor of the greatest player in franchise history.Tagovailoa, the No. 5 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft, literally has said his jersey number “doesn’t matter.” And based on NFL jersey sales, Miami fans appear to agree. Tagovailoa will wear No. 1 with the Dolphins. An NFL spokesman confirmed to ESPN that jersey is both the highest seller and the second highest seller since the draft on the NFL’s official merchandise site. Tagovailoa’s aqua Miami jersey ranks first, and his white Miami jersey ranks second.Below are the 10 top sellers on the NFL’s site as of mid-May.MORE: Tagovailoa’s No. 1 jersey soon to be a Dolphins firstNFL jersey salesRankPlayerTeamJersey colorPrice point1Tua TagovailoaDolphinsAqua$99.992Tua TagovailoaDolphinsWhite$99.993Tom BradyBuccaneersPewter$149.994Tom BradyBuccaneersWhite$149.995Tom BradyBuccaneersRed$149.996CeeDee LambCowboysNavy$99.997Joe BurrowBengalsBlack$99.998Tom BradyBuccaneersRed$99.999Tom BradyBuccaneersPewter$99.9910Rob GronkowskiBuccaneersPewter$99.99The jersey sales rankings are not surprising given the seismic nature of Tom Brady’s free-agency move from the Patriots to the Buccaneers. Brady had dominated jersey sales for years in New England, so his arrival in Tampa Bay gives fans a new inventory of jersey options.The only mild surprise on the list is that so many appear interested in the more expensive editions of Brady’s Buccaneers jerseys. (Nike’s “Vapor Limited” jersey for $150 features enhancements like stitched numbers and a more flexible fabric as opposed to its “Game” jersey for $100.)last_img read more

King disappointed by sentence for water dousing incident

first_imgFORT DODGE  — Republican Congressman Steve King says he’s disappointed in the sentence for a Colorado man who admitted he threw a glass of water on King last year.Twenty-seven-year-old Blake Gibbins was sentenced to two years of probation and ordered to perform 200 hours of community service.“I have seen two of my colleagues shot since I’ve been in congress, others assaulted,” King said this morning. “There’s already been one copy cat crime committed against (Congressman) Matt Gaetz in Florida after this assault on me.”King said he would have preferred a public apology and some jail time for Gibbons. According to King, Gibbons got money after the assault from well-wishers and that money should be donated to charity.“Gibbons has received the proceeds from a Go Fund Me page in the amount of $5645. The fine needs to be much higher than that,” King said.In a plea agreement, Gibbons admitted it was wrong to throw a glass of water on King. The incident happened nearly a year ago, at a restaurant in Fort Dodge.“He took a 20 ounce glass of water and dumped that all over my head and just, you know, doused me with it,” King said. “And I jumped up and tackled him into a booth and I had some help from one of the other guys at the front that helped head him off at the pass…We held him there and the police force came from Fort Dodge and took him into custody.”Gibbins’ attorney said Gibbins’ actions were out of character and may have resulted from recent emotional pressure. Gibbins, who had no prior criminal history, was in Iowa for a family funeral when he approached King.last_img read more
