USC gets a chance to prove itself

first_imgFor most of the USC women’s cross country team, Saturday’s NCAA West Regional meet in Springfield, Ore., will be the last race of the 2009 season.It also serves as a chance to show that the Women of Troy’s ninth-place finish at the Pac-10 Championship was not indicative of the team’s potential.“This is a great chance for us to build off of Pac-10s,” USC coach Tom Walsh said. “It’s one last chance to get a real important race in.”Although only one of USC’s runners, junior Zsofia Erdelyi, appears on track to qualify for the NCAA Championships, Walsh insists that the West Regionals are just as important for the other members of the team, especially underclassmen.“This is great experience for the rest of the girls,” Walsh said. “They will learn so much and their improvement curve will be much better after they run this race. Looking ahead to the future, we have a lot of freshmen that are starting out at a high point and are going to be productive in our program for the next four years.”The race also holds a bit of extra importance for four of USC’s eight competing runners. Senior captain Bridget Helgerson is a native of Portland, Ore., and freshman Kathleen Moloney, senior Katherine Ellis, and junior Zara Lukens all hail from Washington.“This is basically a homecoming for half of our team,” Walsh said. “I think it’ll be a boost to these four girls to be back in familiar territory.”On the course, however, Saturday’s race holds the greatest significance for Erdelyi, who is looking to qualify for the NCAA Championships for the second consecutive year. The junior standout from Hungary is coming off a slightly subpar race at the Pac-10 Championships.But Walsh says he is not worried about Erdelyi’s chances to compete at NCAAs.“Every year she’s finished higher at regionals than she has at Pac-10s,” Walsh said. “We’re hoping that is something she continues. I have faith that she will.”Last season, Erdelyi finished 17th overall at Pac-10 Championships, then rebounded to finish eighth overall at West Regionals two weeks later. Walsh estimated that Erdelyi would have to finish somewhere in the top 20 overall at this year’s meet in order to qualify for nationals.Rounding out USC’s competitors on Saturday are juniors Christine Cortez and Dina Kitayama, along with freshman Christy Ambrosini, who will be an alternate.The women’s 6K race will begin on Saturday at 10:45 a.m. at Springfield Golf Course.last_img read more

Fast reaction: 3 takeaways from No. 9 Syracuse’s 13-7 win over No. 11 North Carolina

first_img Published on April 16, 2016 at 6:12 pm Contact Jon: [email protected] | @jmettus No. 9 Syracuse (7-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) clinched a berth in the conference tournament by beating No. 11 North Carolina (6-5, 2-1), 13-7, at the Carrier Dome on Saturday.The Orange had lost four of its last five games coming into the match and was 0-3 against teams ranked No. 11 or better, but broke the streak with the six-goal win over the Tar Heels.Here are three observations from the game.Holding onSyracuse ran out to a commanding 8-2 lead over North Carolina in the first half. But a four-goal third quarter for the Tar Heels cut the Orange’s lead to two.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn three of the SU’s last five games it had blown second half leads on the way to losses. It was up by two to Cornell on Tuesday and fell in overtime. The Orange had a five-goal lead at one point when it played Duke on March 26 and dropped the game in overtime. Syracuse had a two-goal lead in the fourth quarter against Johns Hopkins on March 19 with and blew that one, too, losing in overtime.But on Saturday, the Orange avoided the trend of dropping games and held on. Jordan Evans found the back of the net early in the fourth quarter to end UNC’s four-goal run and Nick Weston scored with just under seven minutes left to stretch the lead to four.The Orange took control of the fourth quarter to outscore UNC, 4-1, in the final frame.Stuck in limboSyracuse goalie Evan Molloy’s job was still in limbo prior to the UNC game. He had allowed 16 goals and made 13 saves in his first two starts after taking over for beginning-of-the-year starter Warren Hill.Through the first half on Saturday, Molloy turned in the best half of his career. Against the fourth-highest scoring offense in the country, Molloy made five saves and let in just two goals. Twice he passed the ball quickly up the field, which led to transition goals for the Orange.None of Molloy’s success from the first half carried into the third quarter, though. Almost all the shots that the Tar Heels took wound up in the back of the net.His three saves in the fourth quarter, though, were enough to help stave off the Tar Heels comeback.SurgeMidfielder Sergio Salcido once again led the Orange offensive attack with a team-high five points (three goals and two assists). He’s now second on the team with 32 points.Salcido netted two of the Orange’s first three goals using his speed to get around defenders. When the North Carolina defense adjusted to slide faster when Salcido had the ball, he dumped it off and found open players for assists. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
