Irvine: Baggies similar to Toffees

first_img “Terry is someone I’ve respected as a coach from a distance for many years and I’m looking forward to working closely with him. “I’m extremely excited about the challenge and I’ll certainly give it everything I possibly can. “I’ll work however many hours it takes to make things work.” “The situation at this club is similar to what I went through at Everton when I went there with David,” he said. “I’ve got a great deal of respect for the club right the way from the first team through to the academy. “It is run very sensibly and, as a result of that, any head coach coming in has got a great chance of doing a good job. “A number of the players who have had success in the Premier League with the club are still here. “But it’s a small squad at this moment in time and, clearly, the first job is going to have to be to get some more players in.” Irvine is looking forward to utilising the experience of a 22-year coaching career to help West Brom move on from a turblent season which saw Steve Clarke sacked and then Mel depart after just a few months. The Scot will work closely with West Brom’s technical director Terry Burton to get the squad up to speed again in time for the new season. “My passion is for coaching and I believe my strength is on the training ground, which is where we need to get the work done,” he told wba.co.uk. New West Brom manager Alan Irvine believes the club shares similarities with Everton at the time when David Moyes first took over a decade ago. Irvine, who has left his job as the Toffees’ academy boss to take up the vacancy at The Hawthorns having been confirmed as Pepe Mel’s successor at the weekend, spent five years as Moyes’ assistant at Goodison Park. After managerial experience with Preston and Sheffield Wednesday he returned to Everton to oversee their youth programme but has now secured his biggest job to date.

Second line makes difference in 2nd game; Ammerman dazzles with 4 goals scored

first_imgWisconsin’s line of Brooke Ammerman, Brianna Decker and Saige Pacholok may not have started Friday’s game against Wayne State, but they ended it fairly quickly.The three players contributed to five of Wisconsin’s goals, as the Badgers dominated the Warriors 6-2 in the series finale. Ammerman scored four goals, while Decker added a goal of her own and Pacholok assisted on three of their scores.Although they could be considered Wisconsin’s second line, they have been the most productive group for the Badgers all season. The line members were not originally paired with each other at the start of the season, but according to Pacholok, the group has started to come together.“Coach said in between periods we were dynamic on the ice,” Pacholok said. “We weren’t standing still, we were looking for sticks to hit passes with.”Just 42 seconds into the game, Decker stole a pass deep in the Wayne State zone and fed it to Ammerman for the easy score. It was Decker’s first shift back from a broken arm suffered Oct. 3 against North Dakota, and she appeared to have no lingering effects from the time off.Decker — playing in just the third game of her career — also scored when she netted a wrist shot from inside the blue line. According to Decker, the game was a big step forward personally and for the team.“It was great to be back out there with the team and on the bench,” Decker said. “I think we just showed the potential we have.”Decker isn’t the only one happy she’s back out on the ice.“Decker is a special player,” Wisconsin head coach Tracey DeKeyser said. “You can see just the way she has vision for the ice.”In the nine games without her, the Badgers scored just 2.8 goals a game, well below expectations for a team that has outshot opponents almost every game this season.One player who stepped up during Decker’s absence was the freshmen Pocholok, who had three assists in the last nine minutes of the game. None was more impressive than in the last minute, when she was down on her knees deep in the UW zone. Despite being unable to skate, Pacholok spun her stick around and directed the puck away from the Wayne State attackers to set up a goal with just 7.8 seconds remaining.The real star of the game, though, was Ammerman, who scored in both the first and last minute of the contest. Her four goals were not only a season-high but it would have been good for third place on the team for the whole season. With her last score, however, Ammerman tallied her ninth goal of year, almost twice as many as the next Badger.“Brooke was phenomenal — she played great today,” Decker said. “I think if we continue to put the puck in the net, it’s going to help our team a lot.”Ammerman also finished the game with plus-3 rating, the only player on either team to do so.“I hope I can play like this against better teams.” Ammerman said. “It was just a productive day for everybody on the ice.”As a group, the line achieved some remarkable statistics. With Pacholok’s three shots, Decker’s seven and Ammerman’s 11, they outshot the entire Wayne State team. In fact, Ammerman’s total was one short of all the shots Wayne State had for the first two periods.The trio also managed to solve Wisconsin’s power play issues, which had been frustrating the team all season. Decker and Ammerman scored the two goals with the extra attacker, and the team was 2-for-5 on the power play for the night. According to DeKeyser, if the line continues to play this well, it could finally mean a turnaround for the frustrating season.“Both [Ammerman] and Decker are very good offensive threats,” DeKeyser said. “That 1-2 punch was the difference today.”last_img read more

Syracuse, Georgetown to continue basketball rivalry starting in 2015-16 season

first_img Published on June 10, 2014 at 12:02 pm Contact Matt: mcschnei@syr.edu | @matt_schneidman Syracuse will renew its rivalry with Georgetown in basketball starting in 2015-16, according to an SU Athletics release.The deal consists of a four-year home-and-home series, with Georgetown hosting in 2015-16, Syracuse in 2016-17, the Hoyas in 2017-18 and the Orange in 2018-19.“Continuing this historically important rivalry has always been of the highest priority for us since our move to the (Atlantic Coast Conference),” SU Director of Athletics Daryl Gross said in the release. “…and something I know our players, coaches, fans and the entire SU community are excited about.”The two former-Big East rivals didn’t play each other in the 2013-14 season after Syracuse’s move to the ACC and are also not scheduled to face off in the 2014-15.Syracuse leads 49-41 in the all-time series, and won the last game between the two teams, a 58-55 victory, in the 2013 Big East tournament semifinals.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Georgetown against Syracuse is one of the great rivalries in college basketball,” Georgetown head coach John Thompson III said in the release.  “From the days when my father was coaching against Coach (Jim) Boeheim to our most recent games, this is one of those games that generates passion from both sides.”The Orange and Hoyas hold the second-highest attendance total in Carrier Dome history at 35,012, when then-No. 11 Georgetown knocked off then-No. 8 Syracuse on Feb. 23, 2013. That was the final Big East regular-season game between the two teams, and only 35,446 fans that attended the the Syracuse-Duke game on Feb. 1 of this past season ranks higher.“The games in that series have been played at a remarkably high level over the years,” SU head coach Jim Boeheim said in the release. “We’re looking forward to the challenge of playing Georgetown again.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Trojans lost without a true pitching ace

first_imgOver the weekend, California swept the Trojans baseball team at Dedeaux Field for the first time in school history. USC’s record dropped to 15-17 on the season, including a dismal 2-7 in Pac-10 play.To make matters worse, USC coach Chad Kreuter reached a milestone no coach wants to encounter in his fifth season on the job. Friday’s 16-9 loss to the Golden Bears marked loss No. 100 for Kreuter. By the time the weekend was finished, that number had climbed to 102.Unlike many, I don’t think finding a new coach is the team’s most pressing issue. USC has many other problems to figure out that actually take place, you know, on the field.The Trojans desperately need to solidify their bullpen, and it would be nice to see some more consistent hitting up and down the lineup — unfortunately, there is only one Ricky Oropesa.But I still feel the biggest need for the Trojans lies atop their rotation.This season, USC is without a true No. 1 starter. The team has no ace, a problem for any baseball team wishing to contend in the strong Pac-10.When junior starters Brad Boxberger and Robert Stock were selected in the 2009 Major League Baseball draft last June, the Trojans were left with gaping holes to fill at the top of their rotation.Last season, Boxberger, whom the Cincinnati Reds selected as the 43rd overall pick in the draft, posted a 6-3 record with a 3.16 ERA. In 94 innings, he allowed only 69 hits, and he racked up 99 strikeouts as he held opponents to a .211 batting average against him on the season.Stock was also a rock behind Boxberger. He tallied a 5-4 record with a 2.90 ERA and 86 strikeouts in 77 and two-third innings. The St. Louis Cardinals selected Stock 67th overall.Struggles · Sophomore starter Andrew Triggs was pegged by USC coach Chad Krueter to be the team’s ace, but has been inconsistent early. – Nathaniel Gonzalez | Daily Trojan Replacing an ace at any level of baseball is hard to do, but replacing your best two pitchers in one offseason is extremely difficult.Still, Kreuter pointed to sophomore Andrew Triggs to pick up some of the slack vacated by his anchors from the 2009 season. Heading into 2010, Triggs was tapped as USC’s ace and rightfully so.In his 2009 freshman campaign, the right hander was a pleasant surprise for the team. He went 5-3 with a 3.96 ERA in 75 innings pitched. He allowed 79 hits and struck out 50.But Triggs has yet to elevate his game in 2010. He hasn’t been bad by any stretch, but he hasn’t provided the Trojans with the true No. 1 starter they need.In eight starts, Triggs has posted a 1-5 record with a 4.19 ERA. He has improved his strikeout rate, racking up 46 in only 53 and two-thirds innings, but he hasn’t been tallying up the wins for USC.And wins are what the game comes down to.Triggs earned his lone win of the season in the team’s first game, a 9-4 USC victory over Cal Poly in San Luis Obispo. He pitched seven innings, tallied seven strikeouts and allowed four earned runs.Hardly ace material, but a win is a win.The problem is since that start, Triggs is 0-5. His 4.09 ERA in that span isn’t bad, but it’s not dazzling either. The Trojans need a shutdown starter, and Triggs hasn’t been that.Starters Ben Mount and Chad Smith have better ERAs (3.57 and 3.65, respectively) than Triggs, but they haven’t pitched anywhere near the level that Boxberger and Stock did last season.And senior Kevin Couture has been very unspectacular with his 6.99 ERA in nine games.Without an established ace, USC has no pitcher to look to when they need a starter to throw up zeros all night and give their bullpen a rest.A great staff has to start with a strong No. 1. There is still enough time left in the season for Triggs to emerge as that guy — or even for Smith, Mount or Couture to exceed expectations — but as of now, the Trojans are ace-less.That’s quite possibly the worst of their many problems.“Soft Hands” runs on Tuesdays.
