LOVE HURTS: Hobart’s star attack stuns Syracuse 13-12 to take Kraus-Simmons Trophy

first_img Related Stories Freshman Paduda dominates at faceoff X, gives Syracuse chance at victoryZonino stifles Syracuse in Hobart victoryHobart takes home coveted rivalry trophy with win over Syracuse The Carrier Dome was nearly empty one hour after the game except for the Hobart players and fans.At 10 p.m. a booming “Woo!” echoed across the Dome. Four minutes later the excitement bubbled once again and the cheering intensified. Three minutes later it grew even louder, finally stopping at 10:10 p.m.Hobart (6-6, 2-3 Eastern College Athletic) had every reason to celebrate. It staged a stunning comeback over heavily favored No. 3 Syracuse (9-3, 3-1 Big East) an hour earlier, beating the Orange 13-12 in front of 2,362 at the Carrier Dome. Alex Love scored six goals for the Statesmen, setting the team’s single-season scoring record and leading his team to a victory it’s coveted for years.“I know when we play Syracuse we always get a lot of fans,” Love said.Hobart’s comeback attempt against Syracuse came up one goal short last season. The Statesmen trailed 12-9 with 11:17 remaining. They scored three of the next four goals, but failed to capture the game-winner.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThis year, the situation was similar. Down 12-9 with 11:36 to go, Hobart stormed back once again. This time, though, they sealed the deal.Love’s game-winner with 2:13 remaining gave Hobart its first win over SU since 2006 and just its third win over SU in the last 27 years. It left Syracuse players stunned on the sidelines, and paved the way for the uproar an hour later that put a bow on the remarkable comeback.On the final goal, SU’s Drew Jenkins inadvertently pushed the ball in Love’s direction. Love knew he had to act quickly, so he scooped the ball from right to left to clear space.Love torched Syracuse all game with his left hand, sidearming the ball underneath Brian Megill and scoring from all over the field. He prematurely fired what he called a “horrible shot” on the previous possession and said that shot was in his head.“I was like ‘Oh, I should probably pull this out,’” Love said, “and then the kid backed in a little bit so I was like ‘Uh, it might be time.’ So I let it go and it went in.”Love recognized the Hobart faithful by sprinting toward the sideline and launching an imaginary arrow their way.But Syracuse wasn’t done. Steve Ianzito had one last chance. He sprinted down the field as the milliseconds dwindled and the Orange’s fate became imminent.Hobart goalie Peter Zonino, who finished with 18 saves, made his most critical save with 18 seconds left. Ianzito immediately fell to the ground, face-planting into the turf in disbelief. From there, Hobart ran out the clock and completed the upset.Love’s six-goal outburst matched a career-high and gave him Hobart’s all-time single season record with 42 goals.He torched Syracuse the year before with four goals but was unable to come away with the win. Syracuse head coach John Desko said he expected a close game from Hobart despite the team’s sub-.500 record.“He did last year, too,” Desko said. “We had a really good lead early and they came roaring back once again. They don’t quit and it’s a Hobart-Syracuse game. The guys know each other and it’s right down the road, so we expect this kind of game every year from them.”Love’s lefty, sidearm shot was too sly for Megill to handle. With two minutes left in the second quarter, Love snuck one inches under Megill’s stick and past SU goalie Dominic Lamolinara. One minute later he scored on a pass from Jake McHenry right outside the crease.“He’s got a great shot,” Megill said. “He’s really good at getting his left hand open. He had a couple nice rips from up top on man-up and then one in transition and a couple times he got me on that rocker.”Love stole the show Tuesday night with four in the second and two in the fourth. And after two goals from Derek Akner and one from Cam Stone, the game was tied.Just eight seconds after Akner’s second goal, Love delivered for the final time.And when the comeback was finally complete, Love sprinted over to his teammates and chest-bumped with teammate Ryan Munnelly. He let out a massive scream, just like the team did an hour later, still in bliss.Said Love: “It’s a big game for our school – well, maybe not for Syracuse, but for us at least.” Comments Published on April 17, 2013 at 12:52 am Contact Trevor: | @TrevorHasscenter_img Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

This time they’re offering £30,000 in prizes split over two games.The Summer 2017 season as it’s being stylised, offers £15,000 in prizes for competing teams in CS:GO and League of Legends. With CS:GO being the staple title throughout the previous three seasons, and with League of Legends making its return since its only appearance in Season 2. This is also the first time the tournament is designating the Republic of Ireland as a competing country, therefore allowing teams with a majority Irish contingent to compete.The Champions of the Spring 2017 Season of UK Masters (Credit – Katy Eyre/iEventMedia)The new season also ushers in a redesigned look for the league, bringing in a purple colour scheme alongside a new logo. This brings it more in-line with the GAME camp as they intend to centralise more of their esports offering under one roof. This comes after the retailer started focusing their esports properties into their “Belong by GAME” brand, by creating a tournament system alongside their new stores.The competitions are set to face eight teams in each title’s league, with qualifiers starting from the 15th May. Each qualifier is set to have the top two teams secure a spot to their respective league. CS:GO is set for three qualifiers and two invited teams, and LoL is set for four qualifier tournaments.

The finals for both titles will be set for Insomnia i61.More information, including on how to get involved with the tournament, is available on the UK Masters website.Esports Insider says: Nice to see this regular commitment coming from the GAME camp and their attempts to keep the UK competitive. The addition of Ireland to the league is also a recognition of how closely linked the two scenes are.last_img read more

Fantasy Injury Updates: Emmanuel Sanders, Adam Thielen, Amari Cooper, more impact Week 11 start ’em, sit ’em calls

first_imgWide receiver continues to be the NFL’s most injury-laden position in 2019, as the length of this pre-Week 11 injury update list shows. It’s certainly made our WR rankings a bit of a mess. This week, we’re keeping track of Emmanuel Sanders, Adam Thielen, Amari Cooper, Will Fuller V, T.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess, Alshon Jeffery, Demaryius Thomas, and Robby Anderson. They’re all at varying degrees of health, and Funchess is eligible to return from Injured Reserve, further causing start ’em, sit ’em headaches. We have latest updates below.For news on banged-up QBs Matthew Stafford and Jacoby Brissett, click here; for updates on injured TEs George Kittle, Jack Doyle, and Gerald Everett, go here; for the latest on ailing RBs David Johnson, David Montgomery, Jordan Howard, and more, click here. Follow us at @SN_Fantasy for more news and updates. WEEK 11 NON-PPR RANKINGS:Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerLISTEN TO THE SN FANTASY WEEK 11 PREVIEW PODCAST BELOWWill Emmanuel Sanders play Week 11?UPDATE: Sanders missed practice on Thursday.After exiting Monday Night Football with a ribs injury, Sanders missed San Francisco’s Wednesday practice. Kyle Shanahan told reporters earlier in the week that Sanders will probably be a true game-time decision Sunday for a 4:05 p.m. ET meeting with the Cardinals.Sanders’ absence would boost Deebo Samuel into very playable fantasy territory. The rookie had eight catches for 112 yards on Monday night, benefitting from Sanders’ absence. If Sanders plays, he should be in fantasy lineups and Deebo would be no more than a FLEX play.MORE WEEK 11:Waiver wire | FAAB planner | Trade values | Snap counts | Fantasy playoff SOSWhen will Adam Thielen play again?UPDATE: Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Thursday there’s a “chance” Thielen could play this week.Thielen (hamstring) didn’t participate in Wednesday’s or Thursday’s practice, instead doing resistence work with trainers off to the side. Minesota plays the Broncos in Week 11 before a Week 12 bye.At this point, it’d be odd to see Thielen return before the Vikings’ bye. Based on his recovery, he should be ready to go full throttle in Week 13.WEEK 11 DFS LINEUPS:Y! cash | Y! GPP | DK cash | DK GPP | FD cash | FD GPPAmari Cooper injury newsUPDATE: Cooper practiced in a limited fashion on Thursday.Cooper (knee, ankle) was held out of Dallas’ practice Wednesday. It’s not the first time this season he’s missed practice, and he’s yet to miss a game. The Cowboys play at 1 p.m. ET Sunday in Detroit.You never like to see the double injury on the injury report, but Cooper has dealt with these injuries at various points this season and been fine. Unless we see him miss practice Friday, there’s probably nothing to worry about for one of fantasy’s best WRs, especially in this favorable matchup.WEEK 11 PPR RANKINGS: Running back | Wide receiver | Tight endWill Fuller V injury updateUPDATE: Fuller practiced again in a limited fashion again Thursday.Fuller was a limited participant in the Texans’ practice Wednesday. He hasn’t played since injuring his hamstring in Week 7. Fuller’s return would shift Kenny Stills down the WR pecking order in Houston.As long as Fuller gets one full practice in before the end of the week, it should be safe to count on him for Sunday in a matchup with a beatable Ravens defense, which is why he was among our Week 11 sleepers. MORE WEEK 11 DFS: Values | Stacks | Lineup BuilderT.Y. Hilton, Devin Funchess injury statusHilton sat out Wednesday’s practice as he continues to deal with his calf injury. Funchess (collarbone), on the other hand, practiced for Indianapolis on Wednesday and is eligible to return from Injured Reserve and play this week. Funchess is not likely to suit up in Week 11, according to CBS4 Sports’ Mike Chappell. A Funchess return with Hilton still out would muddy the waters on the fantasy utility of Zach Pascal, who’s been the unquestioned No. 1 WR with Hilton on the shelf. Funchess probably would just play opposite Pascal but potentially funnel some targets away from him. Indy TE Jack Doyle is also a question mark for Sunday, but it looks like Jacoby Brissett will be back.Alshon Jeffery Week 11 statusJeffery didn’t practice Wednesday due to an ankle injury he sustained in the Eagles’ Week 9 game ahead of their bye. Doug Pederson referred to Jeffery as day-to-day, and Jeffery missed Thursday’s practice, too. The Eagles play at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday against the Patriots. We would’ve already advised avoiding Jeffery in this one, and this just adds to that. Philadelphia will probably have to force feed Zach Ertz and Dallas Goedert to have any chance of moving the ball against New England, and Carson Wentz’s shaky stock for Week 11 is now worse. If Jeffery is out, Philadelphia will probably continue to feature Nelson Agholor in the slot with Mack Hollins and JJ Arcega-Whiteside on the outside in three-WR sets.Demaryius Thomas, Robby Anderson injury newsThomas and Anderson were both limited in the Jets’ practice Wednesday. New York travels to Washington to take on a subpar Redskins defense in Week 11.Thomas caught six balls for 84 yards against the Giants in Week 10, while Anderson was an afterthought. If the Jets can’t protect Sam Darnold, he doesn’t have time to look downfield for Anderson. The Jets should score points against Washington, and Thomas is probably the slightly preferred FLEX option in a good matchup.last_img read more
