Elaine Carey scores two goals, propelling Syracuse to 3-0 win over Ohio

first_img Published on September 3, 2017 at 5:52 pm Contact Matt: [email protected] Two Ohio defenders lay on the ground. Their sticks sat a few feet away from their hands. Above them stood a 5-foot-1 Irish forward muscling her way through the Bobcats’ defense.“She’s feisty,” senior back Lies Lagerweij said. “She’s small, (but) gritty.”In a 3-0 shutout against Ohio (1-3), one of No. 5 Syracuse’s (5-0) smallest players provided its biggest performance. The Orange controlled possession against the Bobcats and dominated most offensive categories, but struggled to fully convert. But on Sunday afternoon at J.S. Coyne Stadium, Elaine Carey provided the lone spark for the SU offense.Just five minutes into the contest, Syracuse earned a long hit coming off of a penalty corner. Roos Weers launched a missile into the arc, where Carey waited for the deflection. Carey’s ball flew by Ohio goalkeeper Alex Pennington for her first goal of the season.“I was just happy to see her score,” Syracuse head coach Ange Bradley said. “Today she was the one that was able to finish.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the first 19 minutes, SU scored just once on seven shots. Five of the six misses were saved by Pennington. But just under the 20-minute mark, Carey battled down the left sideline, weaving between defenders to make her way into the arc. Crossing through the middle, Carey tripped over a stick. Falling to the ground, she flicked the ball past Pennington for her second goal.The senior rose to her feet and punched her fist in the air as she ran back to midfield.“I try to use my speed to throw the ball past people,” Carey said. “That’s my one advantage over taller people.”Despite those two goals being her only two of the game, the offense continued to run through Carey despite being tightly marked.One minute after her second goal, Carey found herself one-on-one racing into the arc. She pushed the ball through a defender’s legs and fired the ball to the bottom right corner. A diving kick-save from Pennington prevented a Carey hat-trick.Rather than pushing the ball down the side lines, Syracuse has worked on pushing the offense down the middle of the field. After receiving a pass from Weers, Carey did just that. Two Ohio defenders closed in to force a turnover, but after a whistle, SU maintained possession and the two defenders were left on their backs.“It was a fun game today,” Carey said.Carey didn’t record a shot in the second half, but her impact of drawing out the defense and two goals made the difference in a game where the rest of the team struggled to finish. Carolin Hoffmann’s goal at the end of the game came when two defenders crowded Carey, who blocked Pennington’s vision in the cage.Ahead of a contest against No. 12 Boston College, who has already knocked off two top-15 opponents in No. 6 Maryland and No. 14 Northwestern, SU may need Carey’s offensive spark to lead the charge.

Golf in England is more accessible than ever

first_img Golf clubs in England are more accessible and inclusive than ever before, according to new research.Feedback from England Golf’s 2012 Golf Club Membership Questionnaire shows that clubs are becoming increasingly flexible and customer-focused as they strive to attract new golfers and to recruit and retain members.The main findings of the research are highlighted in the Results Booklet, which  includes information and ideas for golf clubs. The survey also helps England Golf to direct national strategy and to show where resources will be best used in future.Richard Flint, England Golf’s Development Manager, said: “These are very difficult times for golf clubs, both in terms of the economy and overcoming the effects of the wettest summer for 100 years. But, it is encouraging to see clubs responding to these challenges in creative and imaginative ways and putting their customers at the heart of everything they do.“England Golf is here to support golf clubs and we urge clubs to take advantage of this and to work with their County Golf Partnership (CGP) to recruit and retain members.”Altogether,  81% of clubs which have maintained or increased their membership figures over the last two years are working with their County Golf Partnership and/or are involved in England Golf programmes.In total, 25% of golf clubs which responded to the questionnaire have experienced an increase in members in the last two years. This is despite an overall drop in membership nationwide. England Golf will be examining these golf clubs in more detail to establish how they are achieving success.According to the research, more golf clubs are offering a range of membership categories, including flexible, corporate, student and intermediate.They are adopting a wider range of initiatives to attract members and increasingly working with their County Golf Partnerships to recruit and retain players. Over the past four years, the CGP network has introduced more than 154,000 people to golf, with 4200 memberships reported to date.Clubs are also becoming more innovative in their promotion and marketing, with a marked growth in the use of social media alongside established communication.Almost all clubs which responded (94%) have membership vacancies and a growing number of clubs are abandoning entrance fees. More clubs are also staggering fees over the transition period from junior to adult ranks.The encouraging trends are also reflected within clubs’ junior sections. More clubs (62%) now have a Child Welfare Officer – highlighting the importance of safeguarding within the golf club environment.More clubs are doing away with specific demands around junior playing standards and course restrictions, demonstrating that U18s are increasingly seen as an integral part of the club. This is reflected by the number of clubs – now 600 – which have achieved the GolfMark Award from England Golf in recognition of their junior and beginner friendly facilities.In addition, a growing number of clubs now allow juniors to play in all adult/main competitions. Almost all clubs (97%) offer group junior coaching and this is increasingly available to both members and non-members.The 2012 Golf Club Membership Questionnaire was returned by 40% (777) of affiliated golf clubs. 16 Jan 2013 Golf in England is more accessible than ever last_img read more
