Orange holds Clarkson in check after allowing 2 goals in opening period

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 6, 2015 at 11:30 pm Contact Chris: [email protected] Clarkson’s Rhyen McGill took the puck following a missed shot from Syracuse’s Melissa Piacentini and started skating furiously toward SU goalie Jenn Gilligan. Gilligan deflected McGill’s shot on the right side of the net. With no Clarkson players nearby, Gilligan looked safe from a rebound.But one came from Syracuse’s Megan Quinn, who accidentally tipped the puck toward her own goal. The Orange, now down 1-0 midway through the first period in its season opener, had begun the 2015-16 campaign in the worst way possible.“It’s not the way we want to start the season,” Gilligan said. “I think Quinn felt worse about it than I did.”Two minutes later, Clarkson’s Shannon MacAulay scored on a power-play goal. For a brief moment, the flood gates that led to a 9-1 Clarkson win last year inched open again on Tuesday night. But Syracuse held them shut, only allowing one more goal.“It would have been easy to lay back and fold a little bit,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. “But I thought our kids came back hard.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe Orange defense not only held up for the remainder of the first period, but also improved as the game went on. Though the end result was a 3-1 loss to No. 5 Clarkson (3-0), Syracuse (0-1) was in a position to compete in the third period.Syracuse’s prevented Clarkson from scoring in the second period after the two-goal first. Larissa Martyniuk, along with Quinn and freshman Allie Munroe, were instrumental in breaking up Clarkson passes in transition. Gilligan had 34 saves, with 16 coming in the third period.Syracuse’s defense flashed its potential during a third-period penalty kill, stopping seven shots while shorthanded, with four saves from Gilligan and four blocks from defenders.“I can’t even think about it,” Gilligan said about the sequence. “Once it’s done, you’re gasping for air. The team did a great job, and obviously, Clarkson has one heck of a power play.”But with just over two minutes left to play and the Orange trailing by one, Martyniuk was called for tripping. Clarkson’s Cayley Mercer scored just 24 seconds into the power play, preventing any chance of a Syracuse comeback.But for the Orange, especially with its defensive miscues at the start, a 3-1 loss may not be as bad as the scoreboard lead on.“It’s not great to lose to them, but we kept with them and dominated them in the second,” Martyniuk said. “We took it to them in the third and gave them a little run. It’s not horrible.” Commentslast_img read more

Cowboys’ Jason Witten still has ‘jitters’ entering 16th NFL season

first_img Antonio Brown’s new helmet fails test; receiver reacts with harsh tweet All the years of experience Jason Witten has in the NFL still couldn’t prepare him for his return to action for the first time in 20 months.The Cowboys tight end played his first game since Dec. 31, 2017, Saturday as Dallas defeated the Rams in their second preseason meeting, and while Witten may need some more warming up, his transition from the broadcast booth was smooth considering his break. Witten, who came out of retirement in February to return to the Cowboys after a tepid season as a “Monday Night Football” analyst, caught just one pass for 10 yards on the first team’s only drive of the Cowboys’ 14-10 win at Aloha Stadium. But that was all he needed to feel good and comfortable. Patriots players ‘pulling for’ reinstated receiver Josh Gordon Andrew Luck sighting: Colts quarterback warms up ahead of Week 2 preseason game “Doing what I love, no place I’d rather be,” Witten said. “Feel like I’m on schedule. This is the next step for us, and all through training camp, I felt good. We shall see as we move forward, but I wouldn’t bet against.”Witten played 15 seasons for the Cowboys from 2003-17, which included 11 Pro Bowls, the most in franchise history by any offensive player before he retired and started the TV gig at ESPN. He returns with 1,152 career receptions (fourth in NFL history) and 12,448 career receiving yards (21st in league history) to go with his 68 touchdowns in that span.The Cowboys went 10-6 in 2018, winning a wild-card game before falling to the Rams in the NFC’s divisional round. “A year away from the game, all the work to get back here since March, getting in shape, getting your body ready, having an opportunity, I know I’ve got a lot to prove,” Witten said, per ESPN.com.”It wasn’t perfect. I thought we’re on schedule with the things I want to work on. Able to get a third-down conversion. Dak showed he had the confidence on that. Some of the other things in the passing game, running game, I felt good with. It’s always tricky when you’re coming back out here … so the jitters were real. A lot of work to get back to here, but it felt good.” Related Newslast_img read more
