Wisconsin splits weekend clash with Bulldogs

first_imgBadgers forward Tom Gorowsky scored an empty-net goal on Friday to add on to Wisconsin\’s win over UMD.[/media-credit]For the second series in a row, the University of Wisconsin men’s hockey team let an opportunity slip through their grasp as they failed to sweep a WCHA opponent.After winning Friday’s game 3-1, the No. 16 Badgers fell to No. 15 Minnesota-Duluth 1-0 Saturday at the Kohl Center.Considering a victory would have left UW in a tie for first with Denver, the weekend split may sting even worse.“For some reason — we talked about it in the locker room — we just haven’t been able to put together a good Saturday night after a Friday,” senior forward Tom Gorowsky said. “If you want to be a championship-caliber team, you have to play at least two good games in a row, if not three, and we haven’t been able to put that together after Christmas break.”On Saturday, the Badgers found themselves stuck with a 0-0 tie heading into the final period. Some of that can be chalked up to strong defense on the Bulldogs’ part, but UW also failed several times to capitalize on obvious scoring chances. Most notably, when nearly halfway through the first period, Gorowsky missed an empty net from close in the slot.“I thought our energy level was real good in the third period,” head coach Mike Eaves said. “What concerns us as coaches — we told the boys after — is in our second period, where did we go? We didn’t give up a lot, but they probably had the puck more than we had (it).”Trying to ratchet up the intensity at the start of the final period, junior captain Blake Geoffrion picked up an unsportsmanlike penalty before the puck had dropped. After being removed from the faceoff circle for tussling with his Bulldog counterpart, Geoffrion continued to talk to the referee, earning himself two minutes in the penalty box.“Blake is trying to provide us with emotion,” Eaves said. “Did he go too far over the line? It takes two to dance, and just in my view of that, I thought the other young lad was involved as well.”“I’m not really sure — I gave him a love tap, and I got a penalty,” Geoffrion added.Though UMD failed to score on the resulting power play, the Bulldogs tallied the game’s only goal 4:32 into the period. UW sophomore Podge Turnbull turned the puck over in the Badgers’ defensive zone, and UMD’s Jack Connolly was able to find Jordan Fulton in front of the net for the game-winner.“That is definitely a strength of Duluth — they have good quick forwards,” sophomore defenseman Ryan McDonagh said. “They cycle the puck down low, and I think tonight we were just one second too late in picking guys up and closing down on them, and it’s definitely an area we need to work on and get stronger.”Though Eaves was disappointed with the final result, Wisconsin’s coach chose to look at the positives at the end rather than dwell on the shutout.“We will break down the game and we will say, ‘We did a lot of really good things,’” Eaves said.Friday, UW fell behind early when Connolly recorded his seventh goal of the season 5:26 into the game. That was all the Badgers would allow, however, as UW held UMD to 21 shots for the game, including a mere four in the third period.“It was a point of emphasis that we were working on this last week,” defenseman Jamie McBain said. “Our up by a goal forecheck, as far as making sure that we have that third guy back all the time, and to make sure that we have numbers back. It may be boring because we aren’t going quite as hard, but its effective and gives us a chance to play solid defense all the time.”Wisconsin junior Michael Davies found the back of the net on a power play in the first period to tie the game at one. McBain picked up the primary assist to give him a league-leading 20 assists on the season.McBain picked up his second assist of the night when sophomore Sean Dolan slapped home a rebound for the game-winner midway through the second period.“We said going into this game — playing against young Stalock — that he is a very good goaltender and if we are going to have chances, they are going to be on rebounds,” Eaves said. “He is good with the first shot; If can see it, he is going to make saves. … It was about who is going to find a way to get to those pucks, and tonight, Sean Dolan got to a loose puck and whacked it in.”Gorowsky was able to put in an empty netter to give the Badgers a final score of 3-1.With the mixed results on the weekend, UW is choosing to look at this as a learning experience to help for the rest of the season.“Playing at the same level on Saturday has been a challenge for us right now,” Eaves said. “We talked about that after as a team, we brought it to a level of awareness and its like we say, every game is a riddle and we have to solve these Saturday games.”last_img read more

USC tuition growth rate remains stable

first_imgLast month, University of California system President Janet Napolitano proposed a tuition hike for undergraduates. If approved, the cost of attendance could rise by as much as 5 percent in each of the next five years if the state does not increase funding for the system’s budget.Currently, average costs for a full-time undergraduate California resident living on campus is $33,100 per year, with the number jumping to $55,978 for non-residents in the same situation. The proposed hikes could raise those figures by an estimated $3,000 by 2019, according to the Los Angeles Times.Napolitano defended what would be the first rise in tuition in four years for the statewide system to help cover mounting pension costs and keep the schools competitive in terms of hiring new faculty and admitting more students. A portion of the funds would also be used to increase financial aid for students.University administrators said that financial aid at USC has stable funding.“Costs will always be a primary factor, financial aid also does play a large part, and especially here at USC since our aid packages are very generous. Our need-based aid averages $43,000 currently. It also helps that we have stable funding so there is no uncertainty about if our financial aid will or won’t continue,” said Thomas McWhorter, dean of financial aid at USC.Nearly two-thirds of UC system students receive some sort of aid while attending school, with an average award of over $16,000 according to the University of California system website.USC, a private institution that doesn’t charge students based on geography, estimates its yearly costs are $64,761 for a full-time undergraduate student living on campus at present time.Tuitions and fees at USC are set by the Board of Trustees and have increased an average of 4.28 percent annually over the past five years.“Any time an institution significantly increases its costs, that is going to have some sort of an impact. However, we aren’t going to be changing any of our recruitment practices or our messages based on that,” said Timothy Brunold, dean of admissions. “The increase will also contribute to the continued discussion that many people are having about the affordability of college.”Newly re-elected Gov. Jerry Brown, who also serves as the official president of the Board of Regents for the UC system, voted against the tuition hike at the meeting. Brown is in the process of forming a committee to analyze current UC spending and reforming the current curriculum to help students graduate faster in a way to stem the proposed tuition increase. According to the Campaign for College Opportunity, 84 percent of students graduate from the UC system after six years.On Tuesday, a group of Democratic lawmakers proposed an alternative to Napolitano’s measure. The proposition would cut funding for a newly established scholarship program focused on middle-class students and simultaneously raise tuition for out-of-state students only.Napolitano added insight on the recent measure.“The bill introduced today is a promising first step toward making sure that public higher education benefits Californians today and for generations to come, and we look forward to working with Senate Democrats and other elected officials to secure the state funding essential to this end,” she said in a statement.last_img read more

PL on Citi: Spurs come from behind to beat Brighton and Hove Albion

first_imgTottenham have moved within three points of the top four as they came from behind to beat Brighton in the first match of an action-packed Boxing Day.Dele Alli scored a superb winning goal after Harry Kane had earlier cancelled out Adam Webster’s opener, as Spurs got revenge for their 3-0 defeat at the Amex in the final stages of Mauricio Pochettino’s reign as manager.It was Alli’s fifth goal in eight games under Jose Mourinho and it will have provided some comfort to the Portuguese, who revealed before the match that his Christmas Day had been ruined by his dog dying. GETTY IMAGES – GETTY4Alli received the ball after some lovely Spurs play But Kane did eventually get on the score sheet to level the tie before Alli’s winner And he chipped a superb finish over Ryan into the far corner of the goal The three points boost Spurs’ top-four prospects and continue an incredible record on December 26 for both the club and Mourinho – on this date, they are unbeaten in 14 and eight encounters respectively.Brighton, who won the reverse fixture 3-0 in October, had threatened to ruin that run as they were the better side in the first half and had Webster’s opener to hang onto.But they have now gone three games without a win and must prepare for another lunchtime kick-off against Bournemouth in 48 hours.Even before the loss of his family pet Mourinho’s mood had been soured by spending much of the build-up to this game talking about VAR and how it is killing the game and his feelings would only have worsened in the 25th minute as his side had a goal ruled out.center_img Kane thought he had opened the scoring – but VAR ruled his goal out for offside Spurs had laboured in the opening quarter to get in behind Brighton, so they went long as Harry Winks sent Kane clear.The England captain finished in the usual accomplished manner, rolling past an onrushing Mat Ryan, but VAR official Mike Dean needed the perpendicular lines to rule Kane centimetres offside.Spurs needed that pick-me-up so to have the goal chalked off was a blow and what happened 12 minutes later was perhaps inevitable.Winks was adjudged to have fouled Ezequiel Schelotto on the left, though contact was minimal, and Pascal Gross whipped in an inviting delivery which Webster climbed highest to power home.Spurs were booed off by their fans at half-time, but they were immediately better after the break and needed only eight minutes to equalise. Lucas Moura looked to have run into a blind alley but a lucky deflection saw the ball fall kindly to Kane and after Ryan saved his first attempt, the striker put the ball away at the second attempt.It was his 10th goal of the Premier League season, the sixth successive season in which he has reached double figures.That was just what Mourinho will have ordered and Spurs used it as a launchpad to push Brighton back.Kane would have had another chance had his touch been better after Moussa Sissoko’s raid forward, but there was no denying Spurs a second in the 72nd minute.It was a brilliant team move as Moura and Kane linked up with Christian Eriksen, Dane’s brilliant diagonal ball finding Serge Aurier for him to tee up Alli, whose cushioned first-time finish found the top corner.Alli should have had a second in the 90th minute when Kane played him through, but Ryan produced a fine flying save to turn the ball over the crossbar.last_img read more

The FEF accuses the AFE of acting against the interest of the players and having a “hidden agenda”

first_img 3º.- That Labor union, after the meeting held on April 7, He distributed a press release to the media that contained a version of what happened that was contrary to what had actually happened. That, in order to preserve the right to receive truthful information provided in the EC, the RFEF sent the press a press release correcting the differences and inaccuracies with the reality of what had happened at the meeting, accompanying, to the first medium that asked us for it, the recordings that accredited it.4º.- What it is difficult to speak of the right to privacy, which is repeatedly alluded to in the letter, when the AFE has sent a press release on the contents of the meeting, held in the presence of more than 20 people, so that in no case can the quality of secrecy be preached from it. What’s more, even yesterday, AFE sent the press the letter sent to the RFEF referring to the aforementioned meeting. In fact, it has been the habitual practice of that Union to send to the media, even before being received in this Federation, all the letters and writings that are sent to us, with a manifest desire to make known the content of the issues that concern us .We want once again to show that the RFEF has limited itself exclusively to clarifying before the public what really happened, with the corresponding documentary support of the recording. From the AFE brief, it is inferred that what is intended to be considered “secret” is not the meeting, but the real manifestations of their representatives in it, given its nature clearly contrary to the union interests of Spanish footballers.5º.- It must be remembered that, for criminal purposes, all data or information belonging to the company that you want to keep out of the reach of certain people must be understood as secret. The persistence contained in the brief that the statements of the representatives of AFE in the Commission must be classified as secret, leads us to the suspicion that AFE has a “hidden agenda”, which is why it intends to hide its own manifestations from its affiliates and from public opinion and that is why it tries to prevent its dissemination with alleged criminal actions. 6º.- Finally, AFE, how could it be otherwise, can exercise as many actions as it deems appropriate, signaling that the exercise of these will not prevent the RFEF from complying with its obligations in order to inform to public opinion on the veracity of what happened in matters that affect them. “ The Spanish Football Federation has remitted a letter to the Association of Spanish Footballers where you remember that Interveners at the meeting of the coronavirus crisis monitoring committee were warned that it was being recorded. He also explains that not only representatives of the AFE, League and Federation participated in the telematic meeting. The letter is the response to AFE’s announcement of take legal action against the FEF for leaking the audio of the meeting.The letter acknowledges that audios were provided to prove that the version of what happened at the meeting corresponded to that offered by the FEF and accuses the AFE, and implicitly its president, of having defended a position “clearly contrary to the union interests of Spanish soccer players” and of having a “hidden agenda” for demanding that the deliberations be secret.The Federation note states the following“1º.- That the Commission, unlike what some have transmitted, it is not exclusively made up of AFE, LNFP and RFEF. On the contrary, as you are well aware, it is made up of representatives of the RFEF; President, Secretary General, representatives of different committees and departments, (President of the CTA referees, Medical Services, Futsal, F. Feminino, Amateur F, 2nd B and 3rd Division, Legal, Competitions, etc.), by representatives of the LNFP, the Union of Footballers AFE, the Union of Futsal Players AJFS, and the Union of Futsal Players AJFSF, clubs (Women’s Football and Futsal), without any of its members or participants acting in a private capacity or as legal advisers.2º.- That at the beginning of the first meeting, held on March 12, it was agreed, without opposition from any of the interveners, to record the conversations of the commission for the record.In any case, when the commission has met electronically, on the screens of each of the participants a red pilot appears at all times to inform that the recording is taking place of the entire meeting.last_img read more

DaCosta, Walker tipped to take ‘Trials’ double

first_imgThe three-year-old campaign leading up to the 1000 and 2000 Guineas in April reaches a crucial stage at Caymanas Park today with the $1.3 million Thornbird Stakes for native-bred fillies and the Prince Consort Stakes for colts and geldings, both sponsored by Front Runner, sharing the spotlight over 1400 metres. The fillies, in particular, have been lighting up the campaign, and going into this their final prep, the 11 declared coming to ensure an intriguing contest. Among the principals are the hat-trick seekers RUNALLDAY from the Anthony ‘Baba’ Nunes stables, BILINGUAL, who is also trained by Nunes, and Dwight Chen’s MARLENE MY LOVE, All three have looked potential classic winners but may need to show further improvement to stop the classy SHE’S A MANEATER, who has won four races from five carer starts, including a fast-time win over this trip in January. Trained by 16-time champion Wayne DaCosta for owner Winston Kong, the free-running bay filly by Natural Selection out of the 2009 ‘Horse of the Year’ Ahwhofah lost her only race on Boxing Day when caught and beaten by the grey colt SOTOMAYOR in the $4..25 million Supreme Ventures Jamaica 2-Y-O Stakes over a mile, a race in which she turned for home a clear leader. However, she showed in her last race that she had definitely trained on, winning impressively ahead of subsequent winner ANOTHER FURY in the good time of 1;25.3 with customary rider, reigning champion jockey Omar Walker aboard. She continues to look sharp at exercise, and having won twice over this trip, her proven class should ensure that nothing overhauls her in the closing stages. Three time winner DaCosta and Walker should complete the feature race double with recent winner FEARLESS SAMURAI in the Prince Consort Stakes to be contested by nine starters. The chestnut colt by Fearless Vision out of Sayuri has won three races from five starts, but really turned heads last time out when slamming MONEY MAGNET over 1100 metres, covering the distance in the smart time of 1:06.0. FEARLESS SAMURAI (working well) will be seen to even better advantage over this trip, and despite the strong claims of hat-trick seeker DON CHASSIS and recent winner DONTAE, he should take a lot of catching. A notable absentee from the line-up is the ‘Baba’ Nunes-trained SOTOMAYOR, who has bypassed the Prince Consort Stakes in preference for the 3-y-o and up overnight allowance mile, a race he should win ahead of the in-form IAN LINKS, now stepping up to a mile. Other firm fancies on the card are LAWS OF THE CODE in the first race, ZEPHYR in the third, BIG BLACK NATION in the fourth, TIZ A VIBE in the fifth and SUBBIE in the seventh.last_img read more
