Defensive breakdowns in 2nd half cost Orange in loss to Washington

first_img Published on August 27, 2012 at 1:32 am Contact Josh: [email protected] Allowing set plays to enter the box close to the Syracuse goal was the Achilles’ heel for the Orange on Sunday. SU allowed two Washington second-half goals on shots from inside the box.Syracuse sophomore forward Alexis Koval scored at the 26:24 mark of the first half as the team outshot the Huskies 7-2 early on. Despite strong play throughout the game, two defensive lapses in the second half resulted in two Huskies goals in the Orange’s 2-1 loss.“They served a lot more dangerous balls into the box,” head coach Phil Wheddon said. “Our marking on both goals was poor. The goal was open at the back post on one of them. We’ve got to do a better job at being more organized.”Syracuse’s defensive shape remained steady despite coming off two overtime matches, one on Friday against Albany. Wheddon said after Friday’s game he was worried about the team’s energy level for Sunday, but he said it wasn’t a lack of stamina that led to Washington’s goals.“I was worried that they were going to be tired, but I thought we battled,” Wheddon said. “I thought our defenders were fantastic for the most part. …They battled through everything. I was really, really impressed with them.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWheddon said he was particularly pleased with junior defenders Rachel Blum and defender Jackie Moriarty. The pair, along with midfielder Rosina Callisto, broke up numerous WU attempts to get the ball into their offensive zone, especially early in the second half.Like in Friday’s match against Albany, forward Hanna Strong came into the game after 25 minutes and had an immediate effect. Strong got her foot on a ball and sent a pass to midfielder Jackie Firenze. Firenze then sent a lead pass over the top of the defense to Koval, who created enough space to fire a shot into the net.Syracuse’s midfield has kept up its high level of play through the team’s first three games of the season. The midfielders are creating numerous scoring opportunities, whether it’s the starters or the substitutes. Strong and freshmen forwards Maya Pitts and Erin Simon have all made contributions off the bench.While the offense couldn’t find the back of the net, the defense and goalkeeping kept the team in the game.Anghel turned aside the two shots she faced in the first half, highlighted by a spectacular save on Washington forward Brittany Archer from point-blank range.Like Friday, Syracuse could not hold its lead. Washington’s Stine Schoening received a pass from Jaclyn Softli and beat Anghel with a shot 18 minutes into the second half. Anghel robbed WU’s Sami Page on the doorstep moments later.Eleven minutes later, WU’s Lindsay Elston found Isabel Farrell open near the back post. Farrell put a shot past Anghel, putting the Huskies in front 2-1.“I think we kept our shape, and it really just came down to set pieces and staying with our marks in the box,” Koval said. “We just have to work on defensive free kicks and marking in the box. I feel like we can take this game and grow from it. We didn’t do badly with our possession or even with our defensive shape, so it can only go up from here.”SU looks to correct its defensive lapses Friday at St. Bonaventure, where the natural grass surface of McGraw-Jennings Field may cause difficulties for the SU players.“I thought for the most part we did a very, very good job at creating opportunities. Again, we outshot them and had more opportunities off of set pieces than they did,” Wheddon said. “Unfortunately, they scored on a set piece. Our marking in the box wasn’t the best, so that let us down.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

USC set to begin NCAAs

first_imgLast year, the USC men’s swim team took home 11th place at the NCAA men’s swimming and diving championships, while the women’s team placed seventh in their NCAA competition.Steep challenge · The Trojans have their eyes set on winning an NCAA title but must first get past California and 2008 Olympian Nathan Adrian. – Daily Trojan file photo A year later, the women’s team showed the country it was a force to be reckoned with, taking home third place at the 2011 NCAA women’s swimming and diving national championships held last weekend at Texas’ Jamail Swim Center in Austin.With that victory still fresh in its memory, the men’s team looks to achieve similar success hoping to improve from its 11th-place performance last time it participated in NCAAs.“Our women’s team accomplished its goal and we have the same program, the same training schedule and we have kind of the same taper,” said freshman Vladimir Morozov. “We are looking forward to performing as well as the women did, or even better.”The 2011 NCAA men’s swimming and diving championships will be held at the University of Minnesota Aquatic Center in Minneapolis.Teams such as No. 1 California, No. 2 Stanford, No. 6 Arizona and No. 7 USC are participating.No. 4 Texas enters the competition as the defending NCAA champion.Arizona, according to Morozov, is the team’s biggest rival, with both teams eager to beat the other.With the women’s NCAA competition complete, the Trojans look to build upon the success of their female counterparts.Although the men and women swimmers compete at different times, USC coach Dave Salo stressed that the team thinks of itself as one entity, not two.“We acknowledge that we are one team, and that the results of one are the results of the other,” Salo said. “I think [the men’s] confidence is always buoyed by how the swimmers before them did. They looked at the women’s team and saw that they did a good job, so now it’s their turn.”Although dual meets made up most of the team’s competition this season, the goal for USC’s team has always been to succeed at NCAAs.With swimmers like Morozov, who has broken several personal and school records this season, and All-Americans sophomore Clement Lefert and junior Patrick White, the team, as a result, hopes to find itself on the podium at NCAAs.“I always set high goals for myself,” Morozov said. “I’d like to win the 50- or 100-freestyle and my biggest competition is Nathan Adrian, the Olympian from Cal. There are some other guys who are close to my best time, but I’m a freshman so I’m just excited to be there.”Though Adrian, who holds American records in 50- and 100-yard freestyle and earned a gold medal as a member of the U.S. 4×100 relay team during the 2008 Olympics, possess a threat to USC’s title hopes, the Trojans do not appear fazed by the stiff competition presented by the Golden Bears, among others.As with the women, Salo’s bunch anticipates a top-10 finish.“For men’s, our goal is to make top-10,” Salo said. “If we have a perfect meet and make no mistakes, we could make top five. They’re excited to go. They’ve looked at the women’s meet results and said, yeah, let’s go.”last_img read more
