USC prepares for NCAA championships

first_imgFinishing 29 strokes behind a conference rival doesn’t normally make for a successful tournament in college golf.But in a week that was all about surviving and advancing, the No. 10 USC men’s golf team was happy to do just that.The Trojans played solid but not spectacular golf on their way to a second place finish at the NCAA West Regional at the Gold Mountain Golf Complex in Bremerton, Wash., and earned a spot in next week’s NCAA championships.Young gun · Freshman T.J. Vogel tied with freshman Martin Trainer atop USC’s leaderboard after regionals with a three-round score of 219. – Courtesy USC Sports Information “This was a good week but not that fun,” USC coach Chris Zambri said. “It was kind of stressful because the whole season basically comes down to that week. To play well under that kind of pressure shows a lot about these guys.”Pac-10 champions No. 3 Washington won the regional going away, with three of its players finishing in the top three overall. San Diego, No. 24 Oregon State and No. 12 Illinois also qualified for the next round out of the 13-team regional.The Trojans got off to a rough start, sitting three strokes out of the fifth and final qualifying spot after a nine over par first round.“We were a little frustrated that we played poorly,” freshman Sam Smith said. “But we knew there were 36 holes left so there was plenty of time to get back into position.”Smith, who just secured the fifth spot in the Trojans’ lineup with a strong performance at the Pac-10 championships, paced USC with strong opening rounds of 73-72.“We felt like Sam carried us the first two days,” Zambri said. “He’s playing the best golf of the year and I think he can even play better.”USC shot 1 over par as a team in the second round to jump up into a tie for third place. The Trojans saved their best for last, posting a 1 under par final round to clinch their fourth straight trip to the NCAA championships.“We realized that we had to come in the top five teams and didn’t necessarily have to go out and beat the field by 29 shots like Washington did,” junior Matt Giles said.The Trojans advanced without any of their players finishing in the top 20 of the towurnament individually. Instead, USC relied on consistent play by all five golfers, posting no rounds lower than 70 and only one higher than 75.Freshmen T.J. Vogel (74-75-70) and Martin Trainer (75-72-72) led the way for the Trojans, finishing in a tie for 21st at 3 over par.Smith posted a final round 75 to place in a tie for 24th at 4 over par.Freshmen grabbed the top three spots for a young USC team that doesn’t have a senior.“Arguably we have the best freshmen class in the country right now,” Smith said. “We’re showing why with three guys in the lineup each week and we’re steadily improving.”Giles (77-72-72) and sophomore Steve Lim (75-73-73) tied for 29th at 5 over par.“I putted really poorly the first day and then actually played okay after that,” Giles said.USC will be joined at the NCAA championships, which begin Tuesday at The Honors Course in Chattanooga, Tenn., by seven other Pac-10 squads.Zambri said the Trojans were helped by playing against some of the nation’s best teams throughout the season.“We just had our best finish of the year and it didn’t feel like we played great,” Zambri said. “Then it dawned on me that we played against really great teams all year. Better competition in the Pac-10 makes all these kids better.”last_img read more

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.

BGC backs Treasury measures to protect UK business

first_imgShare UK gambling adopts toughest online advertising code to protect underage audiences August 27, 2020 BGC lauds success of whistle to whistle ban August 21, 2020 UK gambling trade body, the Betting and Gaming Council (BGC), has welcomed Chancellor Rishi Sunak’s economic package, which provides struggling businesses with access to a £330 billion government-backed fund providing loans to overcome COVID-19 disruptions. Yesterday afternoon, Sunak pledged that the UK Treasury would ‘do whatever it takes’, providing a total of £350 billion in economic support to help UK businesses of all sizes. The Chancellor’s headline proposals included: Providing SMEs with expanded access to £5 million in business loansDeveloping a Bank of England-insured credit facility made available to large-scale enterprisesGuaranteeing all insurance claims related to leisure, entertainment and hospitality businessesRemoving all ‘rateable value’ (location-based) costs for UK leisure and retail businesses, set to a £51,000 capProviding small ‘uninsured businesses’ with a £25,000 emergency cash grant bridging any cash flow impactsThe BGC was among several UK trade bodies urging the government to form an action-plan to protect UK retail, hospitality and leisure businesses.However, despite loan support, the BGC detailed disappointment that the Treasury failed to sanction measures to help SMEs counter day-to-day employment costs, including a suspension of Pay As You Earn (PAYE) and National Insurance Contributions (NIC) liabilities.Issuing a response this afternoon, the BGC detailed: “We welcome the Chancellor’s package of support for businesses in the leisure and hospitality industry which helps address some of our concerns, but we will study the details and will be seeking urgent clarity on the measures. “We are however disappointed that there is no direct support for employment costs and remain concerned about the devastating impact on our members and their colleagues. We will continue to work with DCMS and HMT to ensure the financial viability of our members.” Share Related Articles ASA monitoring sweep marks gambling as the worst underage advertising offender August 26, 2020 StumbleUpon Submitlast_img read more
