FA Cup: Wolves, Man U settle for third round draw

There were changes aplenty following a hectic festive period for both clubs and neither could get a foothold in a fairly drab first-half. Sergio Romero produced one fine save to deny Matt Doherty but that was the only event of note. The second period saw chances for both sides, with Juan Mata first seeing a free-kick fly just inches wide before second-half substitute Marcus Rashford hitting the bar with a deflected effort. Doherty had a goal disallowed for handball, while Raúl Jiménez hit the post as the game drew to a conclusion. The replay will suit neither manager, as both are already having to juggle their squads due to Europa League commitments and United are in League Cup action on Tuesday, but neither side can feel unlucky not to win following what wasn’t a great advertisement for the competition.Tags: FA CupJuan MataManchester UnitedMatt DohertyRaul JimenezWolverhampton Wandererslast_img read more

Fast reactions from Syracuse’s 1st-ever CHA Tournament championship

first_img Published on March 8, 2019 at 6:40 pm Contact Arabdho: armajumd@syr.edu | @aromajumder Facebook Twitter Google+ BUFFALO — Kristen Siermachesky rounded the net and pointed to the Syracuse area of the stands with a wide smile on her face. After her teammates mobbed her in the corner, Siermachesky was the first to slip out and head toward more high-fives on the bench. She had just scored to give Syracuse a 2-1 lead. A lead it would never relinquish. For the first time in program history, Syracuse (13-21-3, 10-8-2 College Hockey America) clinched an automatic bid to the NCAA tournament and earned its first CHA title against Robert Morris (16-14-6, 13-4-3). The teams remained even after one period, but the Orange pulled away in the second period at the HarborCenter, cruising to a 6-2 victory on Friday. Here are three takeaways from the historic victory. Jaycee Gebhard locked downThroughout the game, whenever CHA’s leading scorer Jaycee Gebhard was on the ice at even strength, she was matched against Syracuse’s line of Lauren Bellefontaine, Emma Polaski and Abby Moloughney. The first shift of the game, the RMU forward spent extended time in the offensive zone and on the forecheck. As the game progressed, the lines drew even. Then, with the SU underclassmen line on the ice without Gebhard, Allie Olnowich fired a wrister from the blue line to put the Orange up 1-0.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGebhard had an empty net to shoot at on the power play in the first period but bobbled the puck. She eventually scored in the third period, but RMU was trailing 5-1 at that point. As the Orange’s lead grew, Gebhard grew more and more frustrated. Nearly every time Gebhard touched the puck in the offensive zone, especially in the first two periods, she was hounded by SU players and pinned to the boards. Syracuse’s young line didn’t generate a lot of offense, but they repaid head coach Paul Flanagan’s trust with a shutdown performance.At the right timeBefore Syracuse boarded the bus for Buffalo on Tuesday, Allie Munroe said the Orange were “peaking at the right time.” That held true throughout three games at the Harborcenter. Syracuse came into the tournament having beaten every team in the CHA except RIT, but had only taken one out of four games against Robert Morris. It didn’t matter. At the back, goalie Ady Cohen has trended upwards since the start of February. Before, she was 1-4 with a 3.20 goals against average. In the last month, she’s 3-3-1, but her GAA is down to 2.70. Cohen started against Mercyhurst and made big stops to earn Syracuse’s first win against the Lakers in tournament history. On Friday, she continued her strong play, making numerous key stops including going into the splits to stop a point shot near the end of the second period.Second period team The Orange scored four unanswered goals in the middle period to take control of the contest. It started with Siermachesky. She was moved to forward after coming back from an upper-body injury, and she converted a rebound chance to give Syracuse a 2-1 lead. Just under three minutes later, Jessica DiGirolamo fed Brooke Avery, who slid it five-hole. Savannah Rennie and Lauren Bellefontaine added two more goals later in the period to go into the intermission up 5-1. Robert Morris never recovered, and by the time Gebhard scored her consolation marker, it was just that.In the three CHA tournament games this week, Syracuse scored 10 goals in the second period while allowing just one. Against Lindenwood, SU was down 1-0 after the first period, but four straight second period goals tilted the matchup in its favor. The middle frames of each contest proved vital in the Orange earning their first CHA crown in program history. center_img Commentslast_img read more

One year of Scheer Conservatives mark first anniversary with new leader

first_imgOTTAWA – There is money in the bank. Voters in the hopper. And from many angles, a spring in the step of many Conservatives these days.One year of Andrew Scheer, observers say, has not exactly been flashy but he has done the Conservative Party some good.“He’s been steady,” says Tim Powers, a conservative strategist and vice-chairman of Ottawa-based firm Summa Strategies. “You’d probably give him a solid B or B plus.”Carl Vallee, a former press secretary for the government of Stephen Harper, and now a partner in Montreal strategy firm Hatley, calls Scheer “very, very constant.”Scheer, the 39-year-old, dimple-cheeked father of five, has spent a year fashioning himself as the everyman to Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s jet-setting millionaire ways. His advertising plays up the fact that while Trudeau grew up with a silver spoon or two, Scheer was raised in suburban Ottawa by middle-class parents who didn’t even own a car.Since Scheer took over as leader the Conservative fundraising machine is back in full tilt. The last two quarters were the best the party has had since the 2015 election, and the Conservatives are clearly outpacing the Liberals on the money front — by almost two dollars to one in the first three months of 2018.The polls, while volatile and often hard to parse this far away from an actual vote, have still been favourable of late for the Conservatives, showing them tied with or in spitting distance of the Liberals. If nothing else, the polls serve as a shot of morale in the arm of the Tory caucus and help in the recruitment of candidates.“There’s certainly no mass panic at the moment,” said Powers.As a former speaker, Scheer is one of the most recognizable faces within the Ottawa bubble but outside of it, he’s probably not the first name many people think of when asked to name a Tory politician. Vallee says in Quebec, Maxime Bernier is likely still the most well known. In Ontario and Alberta, provincial Tory leaders Doug Ford and Jason Kenney are eating up more air time.Powers said it’s not horrible if Ford or Kenney are getting more attention currently because they have elections to win before Scheer does. He says the big question mark for Scheer will come in August, when the Conservatives host their first policy convention since he took over as leader. It will also be about the one-year mark from the next election and Scheer has to use it to start to define himself and his version of conservatism.Duane Bratt, a politics professor at Mount Royal University in Calgary, said Scheer’s biggest problem may be that “he is still not well known.”He says any polls favouring the Conservatives have more to do with people being annoyed with Trudeau than with Scheer. And while Scheer has criticized many Liberal policies there have been few alternatives put forward, including how he’d handle the Trans Mountain pipeline or address climate change without a carbon price.Powers notes that Scheer has easily had a better year than either Trudeau or new NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh, but it hasn’t been a year devoid of fires entirely.The appearance or reality of ongoing discord between Scheer Conservatives and those who supported Bernier — Scheer barely beat him on the final ballot of the leadership — continues to float beneath the surface like the lava of a Hawaiian volcano, threatening to burst through at any moment.Bernier himself caused an eruption when he published a teaser chapter from a coming book that said Scheer had won the leadership only thanks to the support of “fake Conservatives” in Quebec. They were people from the powerful dairy lobby, said Bernier, who joined the party only to vote against Bernier and his policy opposing supply management, which regulates production and pricing of milk, eggs and chicken.After a raucous caucus meeting, Bernier suddenly announced he would put off publication of the entire book — initially scheduled for this fall — in order to fully back Scheer as party leader.“They both have found a way to work together,” said Vallee.Brad Trost, the Saskatchewan social conservative MP whose surprise fourth-place finish in the leadership gave him some initial clout to push the party’s position, has mostly been sidelined after losing the nomination to run again in his riding. However, his ongoing lawsuit against the party over accusations he gave out the party’s membership list inappropriately is a simmering issue, and the social Conservatives who backed Trost and then shifted to Scheer may be a little restless in Trost’s absence.The biggest push Scheer has made of late is in Quebec. The second most populous province has not been an easy road for the Tories since Brian Mulroney was prime minister but Vallee says the collapse of support in Quebec for the NDP and the disintegrating Bloc Quebecois are opening the door to a two-horse federal race in 2019: Trudeau or Scheer.Scheer has launched what he calls a “listening tour” in Quebec this spring, complete with a website listeningtoquebecers.ca, and he travelled to the province multiple times in May.Vallee said there is a natural home for nationalist Quebecers in the Conservative Party of Canada, because many of their values are similar, particularly when it comes to fears about preserving language, heritage and history.last_img read more
