first_imgDerek Green was the $2,000 IMCA Sunoco Stock Car winner Thursday at Kossuth County Speed­way. (Photo by SM Photos)By Greg GrabianowskiALGONA, Iowa (July 27) – Derek Green used a late-race pass to take home the $2,000 first place money at Kossuth County Speedway’s Thursday night IMCA Sunoco Stock Car special.Green’s victory came in the Altenburg Construction 25-lap special. He started deep in the field, avoided getting seriously caught up in either two multi-car collisions that brought the race to a halt be­fore the first lap was scored and passed Keith Knop for the front spot with two circuits left.“It means a lot to win a big-paying race like this, especially after starting 17th,” said Green.  “There were a lot of very good cars here tonight and to get to front from where I started is a big deal to me.”“The car has little rear end sheet metal damage from those two incidents in the beginning of the race but it did not slow me down,” he continued. “I could not get around Knop. He finally went into (turn) four a little too hot and I squeezed by him. It is nice to win a race sponsored by Andy Alten­burg and all of the drivers here tonight hope things will continue to get better for him.”Heath Tulp had grabbed the early lead following the two early restarts only to see Eric Bartels drive by two laps later. Knop took charge on lap 10 as Green weaved and bobbed his way through traffic and into the top five.Green slowly reeled in Knop and stayed right on his bumper until the late opportunity presented itself.Knop held on for the runner-up spot as 12th starting Brandon Czarapata was third, Randy Brands took fourth and 21st starting Jim Larson was fifth.More than150 veterans were admitted free to grandstand as part of salute to the veterans by the Hunting With Heroes group of Lakota. Tad Reutzel’s IMCA Modified was specially designed with a red, white and blue wrap and emblems of each branch of the armed forces for the evening.Feature results – 1. Derek Green; 2. Keith Knop; 3.

Field hockey Warriors defeat Baldwinsville, 1-0

first_img Tags: C-NSfield hockeyliverpool Though it was playing defense most of the way, Liverpool made a rare attack pay off in the first half when Emily Haskins, off a feed from Riley Techmanski, put a shot past B’ville goalie Sara Smiley.All through the rest of the half, plus the entire second half, the Warriors turned back all of the Bees’ attempts to pull even, goalie McKenna Ecker stopping all six shots she faced.Two nights later, Liverpool visited East Syracuse Minoa and saw things completely turn around as the Warriors lost 4-0 to the Spartans. Plenty has gone well for first-year head coach Molly Brown at her alma mater, but the Liverpool field hockey team reached a new peak in last Monday’s match at Baldwinsville.Against a Bees side mired in a long scoring drought, the Warriors didn’t let the Bees break out of it and, with a single tally was able to earn a 1-0 victory.It was quite a turnaround from their first encounter Sept. 9 at LHS Stadium, which B’ville claimed 4-1. Defensive adjustments and a much better end-to-end effort helped the Warriors in the rematch.center_img A first-half scoring barrage saw ESM get a pair of goals from Angelina Dodge, plus goals from Abby Herrington and Grace Stone. Mary Searle assisted on three of those goals as, in defeat, Ecker recorded 11 saves.Liverpool’s last regular-season game is Wednesday against visiting Cicero-North Syracuse, who had its own big match last Wednesday night at Bragman Stadium when it tried to upend SCAC leader Fayetteville-Manlius.The Hornets had started 9-0-1 before taking a 6-0 defeat to reigning state Class C champion Whitney Point on Sept. 28. But when C-NS and F-M first met on Sept. 11, a goal by Lucy Fowler late in regulation allowed the Hornets to pull it out 1-0.It was the Northstars jumping out in front in the rematch 1-0 thanks to Chrissy Wagner’s goal, but it did not hold. The Hornets tied it, 1-1, by halftime, and then inched out in front in the second half, hanging on to claim a 2-1 decision.C-NS would now rest until its match with Liverpool, which precedes a Friday-night visit from Camden.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story last_img read more

In its 2nd year, Cleveland State men’s lacrosse looks to a bright future

first_img Published on February 27, 2018 at 11:02 pm Contact David: ddschnei@syr.edu Facebook Twitter Google+ In the last week of June 2015, Dylan Sheridan was busy evaluating eighth- and ninth-grade lacrosse players at an Under Armour skills camp when he felt his phone vibrate in his pocket.At the time, Sheridan was the defensive and recruiting coordinator for Princeton men’s lacrosse, and had spent the previous four years at Denver as a face-off coach and defensive coordinator, helping the Pioneers to three final four appearances.Sheridan took his phone out of his pocket to see Cleveland State’s athletic director, John Parry, calling him. Less than a month prior, Sheridan had interviewed to become the inaugural head coach for the Vikings, and moments after he answered the call from the camp, he found out he’d been chosen.“I felt it could be a pretty special place,” Sheridan said. “(Parry) really loved the game and it was a school that I felt could be attractive to a lot of different kids. I decided I would love to be there if they wanted me, and fortunately, they chose me.”A year and a half later, Sheridan is leading Cleveland State (1-5), a team comprised of 39 underclassmen and one senior, in its second season of existence. In 20 games since the start of last season, the Vikings have faced eight top-20 teams, including Duke, Denver and Ohio State, and are set to play three more before ending the 2018 season. Although CSU has a losing record and a roster full of inexperienced players, Sheridan and Cleveland State believe a young core and willingness to schedule ranked opponents will help them compete for championships down the road.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAfter leaving Princeton and committing to the Cleveland State job, Sheridan shifted his focus to recruiting high school juniors, rather than freshmen, to start filling his roster. Most Division I-bound players had already committed by the time they were in ninth or 10th grade, so Sheridan knew his best bet was to find late-bloomers and players who hadn’t decided whether they wanted to play college lacrosse.Zach Whitenack, who was lightly recruited despite being one of Ohio’s top high school players, Sheridan said, was the first to consider the program. He visited Cleveland State’s campus in late July 2015, the summer before his senior year. The Galena, Ohio, native was the first to commit, which sparked an increased interest from other rising-seniors still looking for a home. In early August, 12 players visited and ended up committing. One of the 12, Tristen Copeland, noted the difficult schedule Sheridan promised as the reason for his commitment.“We were all told we’ll play some of the best top-tier teams,” Copeland said. “Growing up as a kid, that’s all you can ask for. Being from North Carolina, I always grew up watching Duke. And as a freshman, being able to play on their home field was an absolutely surreal experience.”By Feb. 2017, with a complete, 36-man roster in place, the Vikings were set to make their D-I debut. Sheridan wasn’t worried about wins and losses. Rather, he simply wanted his team to compete. In its first season, with a roster composed of 34 freshmen and two juniors, Cleveland State went 5-9. Six of the defeats came against nationally-ranked opponents.The Vikings made “underclassmen mistakes,” Copeland said, and they needed to act like age and experience weren’t factors.“We were all basically freshmen on the field at the Division I level,” Parese Williams, then one of CSU’s two upperclassmen, said. “It was tough at times. Just because we’re inexperienced doesn’t mean we have to play that way.”Williams, who is the sole upperclassman on the Vikings’ current roster, transferred to Cleveland State after two years at Howard (Maryland) Community College. Erik Foust, the head coach at HCC, contacted Sheridan when he heard a lacrosse program was forming at Cleveland State, referring to Williams as his top defender and a Division I-quality player.Williams chose CSU, and when he arrived, he immediately adopted a leadership role. He tried to guide the younger players with the experience he gained from two years at HCC.Going into CSU’s second-ever season, Sheridan knew he and his players wanted to do more than just compete. Despite stacking his team’s schedule with three top-10 opponents, the Vikings’ main goal was to build on last season’s foundation.“We could water things down, but it wouldn’t help our current student-athletes,” Sheridan said about his team’s ambition to challenge the nation’s best. “And it wouldn’t help the future of the program.”Six games into the 2018 season, the Vikings have one win, an 8-7 triumph over Air Force on Feb. 23. While its record is not ideal, Cleveland State’s wins will come as the players continue to improve and become more experienced each day, Sheridan said.As expected with any new athletic program, Cleveland State lacrosse has experienced struggles in its first year and a half of competition. The Vikings’ youth and desire to play the best has Sheridan hopeful for the future of lacrosse in northeast Ohio.“Nobody in lacrosse ever had a reason to come through the city of Cleveland. There aren’t tournaments here, there’s not high-quality high school lacrosse here,” Sheridan said. “We want to get the word out about all the great things happening here.” Commentslast_img read more

Both sides pushed hard to add to the score line but were unable to convert the chances that came along until the 32nd minute when Orchard failed to clear the ball and it fell to Shane Ferry and he lobbed the ball in at the back post. Orchard pulled a goal back on 36 minutes when Raymond Gorman headed home from close range. In the 2nd half  both teams looked to add to their tally and it was  the home side that extended their lead on 64 minutes when Aodhan Ferry made a good run down the left and his chip found the corner of the net. Once more Orchard pushed hard and got their 2nd goal and on 75 minutes when Raymond Gorman headed home his 2nd goal of the game.
