TORRINGTON — Three-time Torrington senior captain Ethan Stater kicked a penalty kick into the net for a 1-1 draw with Woodland in the final minute of a men’s tied soccer game Tuesday night at the Robert H. Frost Sports Complex .

“It was probably an appropriate result,” Torrington co-trainer Jason Appruzzese said. “It was two good teams fighting in a tough and physical game.”

In fact, it was the kind of game that drives non-football fans crazy.

Two stellar defenses forced most of Tuesday’s shots wide and wildly off target. The Raiders applied much of the pressure in the first half, leading to a misleading 18-8 shot disparity.

“We didn’t want them going out in midfield,” said Appruzzese, whose side are now 4-1-1 in NVL.

“We were organized and communicated well.”

Eight minutes from halftime, Woodland (2-1-3; 2-0-3 NVL), who lost nine regular-season starters 13-0-3 last year, found the tailoring his experienced new starters needed.

In a full charge, Aldin Jahja sent a forward pass through midfield to Alexander Farr towards Torrington goalkeeper Logan Tucciarone. Farr’s shot passed him for a 1-0 lead over Hawk.

The second-half pressure stabilized, starting with a reflex star save from Tucciarone on a hard shot from Woodland in the second minute.

A minute later, three-time senior Torrington captain Marco D’Addona led three-time senior captain Chase Gurtowsky with a perfect pass. Gurtowsky’s shot deflected off Woodland’s left post.

Stater, a huge defender with a booming kick, had his first equalizing chance in the 28th minute, sending his shot past Woodland’s crossbar.

With three minutes remaining, the Hawks forced another big save from Tucciarone.

A minute and a change remained when the referees called a Woodland out into the Hawks penalty area.

Stater fired his shot for the draw.

“It wasn’t the result we wanted,” Woodland coach Kenan Collins said. “We had the opportunity to put the game aside early and we didn’t take advantage of it.”

The Hawks travel to Derby on Thursday. Torrington welcomes Wolcott.

SAN LUIS OBISPO, Calif. – The Hawaii women’s soccer team took on Cal Poly to a 2-2 draw on the road on Sunday, scoring two early goals in the opening minutes of the game before the Mustangs tied the game with a score in the final minute of Game.

The Rainbow Wahine (4-2-2, 1-0-2 Big West) still got a point, giving them two points on the road trip and five on the conference season. Hawai’i came into play Sunday tied for the top of the conference standings with Long Beach State.

After UH fended off countless chances from the Mustangs (4-5-1, 1-0-1 Big West) throughout the game, including 13 corner kicks and 18 shot attempts, Cal Poly tied the two things each with only 11 seconds remaining. as Monserrat Marquez netted from a free-kick just outside the box.

UH got off to a flying start, scoring twice in the first seven minutes of the game to take a 2-0 lead. Krista Peterson put the ‘Bows on the board in the fifth minute, firing a long-range shot that went past Cal Poly goaltender Lindsay Kellogg and crossed the goal line.

Two minutes later, Amber Gilbert added to the lead with his third goal of the season. The freshman in the red shirt chased a long ball from Eliza Amendoliabeating his defender and finishing ahead of Kellogg to double the lead at 6:43.

The Rainbow Wahine also fought off plenty of scoring opportunities from Cal Poly to preserve the shutout in the first half. Sophie Augustine recorded three saves in the first 45 minutes as Jacey Jicha made an incredible sliding save on the goal line in the 34th minute after Augustin left the net to take the Mustangs away from the board.

Men’s football faces adversity at start of season https://tomcosgrave.com/mens-football-faces-adversity-at-start-of-season/ Fri, 23 Sep 2022 14:00:24 +0000 https://tomcosgrave.com/mens-football-faces-adversity-at-start-of-season/ The men’s soccer team kicked off the season Monday afternoon against home Anderson University at Reavis Stadium.

The men’s soccer team kicked off the season Monday afternoon against home Anderson University at Reavis Stadium. Sophomore Alec McCarty scored just six minutes into the game with a powerful header, giving the Tigers a 1-0 lead. In the 23rd minute of the game, junior Ben Weidner pressured Anderson’s goalkeeper on a routine pass, forcing an error and slotting the ball into the net to double the Tigers lead.

Shortly before halftime, Anderson was able to get on the board after a scrappy scrum in front of DePauw’s net led to a goal from Anderson’s Caleb Gosner. A relatively calm second half was opened up when Anderson’s Drew Vaughn netted a deep free kick with 15 minutes remaining, leveling the game at two goals apiece until its conclusion. Needless to say, a 2-2 draw was relatively disappointing for the Tigers, who had comfortably beaten Anderson in the previous two years.

On Wednesday, the men’s team traveled to Franklin where they won 2-0. Sophomore Ethan Webster scored from a beautifully placed cross from Ben Weidner in the 32nd minute, which he managed to slot the goalkeeper into the back of the net. In the closing minutes of the game, DePauw doubled his lead when Weidner scored again with a hard shot off a pass from junior Sam Thiel.

On Friday, the Tigers took on the University of Chicago, a nationally ranked opponent. Chicago dominated possession and shot attempts throughout the game, but great play and nine total saves by sophomore Alex Lundin kept the Tigers in contention. U Chicago’s Kai Walsh slipped the one and only goal of the game past the Tigers in the 59th minute after a brief battle in front of the Tigers goal. While not the result the Tigers were hoping for, they played impressively against an accomplished University of Chicago team that averages three goals per game.

Despite a loss at the start of the season, there are some positives, according to Lundin.

“Obviously away it hurts the team, you never want to record a loss. We played a team like U Chicago which is, you know, one of the top five teams in the country… It’s the program standard we want to achieve is where we want to be,” said Lundin.

Since playing against U Chicago, the Tigers have had one win and one loss.

On Sunday, the Tigers traveled to Olivet College to play their final game of the week. Needless to say, the team finished the week strong after crushing Olivet 5-1. The goals were scored by senior Quinn Flaspohler, two by Sam Theil, second Jack Kirby and freshman Jack Powers. To wrap up the two-week period last Wednesday, the Tigers suffered a disappointing 1-0 loss in a tight home game to Rose-Hulman. They then tied Milliken and Center in 1-1 matches. Only good things can come from the adversities the team has faced, according to senior captain Jacob Fowler.

“It’s been an interesting season for sure…So far we’ve faced tough opposition, but I think that’s the push we need to win a conference title. Our goal is always to reach our potential and hopefully this year we can do that,” Fowler said.

The team now has a record of three wins, two losses and three draws.

Football is back in Madison, but maybe not the one you think. Both the Wisconsin men’s and women’s soccer teams are back on the field and both have a lot to prove this season.

The women’s team started their year with a dominating performance in preseason play. The action began away from home against Texas Christian University. The Badgers held the Frogs to a 0-0 draw.

The team continued through Texas, taking on Baylor three days later. With goals from Wisconsin sophomore Adee Boer and senior Emma Jaskaniec, plus a massive effort from goaltender Erin McKinney, the Badgers won their first game of the new season by a score of 2-0.

Ranking the top five sporting events of the semesterIt’s another busy semester of athletics at the University of Wisconsin. With almost every sport competing at least once this Lily…

The Badger’s women’s soccer team’s first home game was against Loyola. Sophomore Maia Richters scored her first career goal with a pass from Jaskaniec in the 41st minute. Amanda Cassidy scored a late equalizer for the Ramblers, ending in a 1-1 draw. Wisconsin then topped UW-Green Bay later that same weekend with a 3-0 win.

The team’s unbeaten run ended with a trip to play at Notre Dame. The Fighting Irish scored four goals against the Badgers in the second half. Jaskaniec managed to score a goal in the 79th minute, and although he couldn’t save a point for Wisconsin, it was Notre Dame’s first goal conceded this season.

The Badgers regrouped and quickly got back on their winning streak, as they won three games in a row. First, a 2-0 victory over Butler in Indianapolis. Wisconsin then picked up home wins over UW-Milwaukee and Northern Illinois.

With non-conference play out of the way, the Badgers turn to Big Ten play. This Wisconsin team has high hopes because they are ranked third in the Big Ten coaches preseason poll.

The women began their conference play with a trip to Iowa City to take on the Iowa Hawkeyes. Iowa struck first in the 6th minute of play, scoring a goal past McKinney. It would, however, be the Hawkeyes’ only goal of the game, as Wisconsin tallied three goals in quick succession in the 46th, 47th and 50th minutes of the game. Wisconsin came home with a dominating 3-1 performance in their first conference outing.

Volleyball: Shooting Stars Paving the Way for New Talent: The New Dynamics of Wisconsin VolleyballA city of champions is a classification accorded to the understanding of consistent success and repeated victory over the greatest Lily…

The women’s team this year had no problem finding the back of the net, a theme that should continue throughout the season.

On the men’s side, the Badgers enter conference play with fewer minutes under their belt than the women’s team. After a disappointing 2021 season that ended 3-5-1 in conference, the Badger’s men put in a strong non-conference showing.

The team welcomed new head coach Neil Jones to Madison with a 5-0 win over Utah State. A transfer from freshman Matt Chandler scored the opening goal, followed by a goal from junior Maxwell Keenan. Juniors Jack Finnegan and Tim Bielic teamed up for a goal, followed by two shots on goal from senior Inaki Iribarren.

Volleyball: look back at the defending national champions after four gamesIn the first two weekends of the 2022 NCAA women’s volleyball season, the defending national champion Wisconsin Badgers are ranked Lily…

The next game against a ranked team from Tulsa created drama.

Finnegan scored two goals and Iribarren netted a third, setting up three goals for the Badgers in the 69th minute. That’s when lightning struck, literally. The game had to be called off seconds before the game reached the 70th minute (where the game could be called over). This meant the match ended “no contest” with no impact on either team’s record.

The strong performance in the first two games was not enough to keep the Badgers going for long, however. Wisconsin suffered losses to UW-Milwaukee and Western Michigan, both on the road. Although Wisconsin scored early in both games, the Panthers and Broncos managed to sneak past goaltender Carter Abbott.

The Badgers closed out the non-conference season with dominating performances against UAB and Marquette. Wisconsin entered the conference season with a positive 3-2 record.

Conference play began with a trip to State College to take on Penn State. The first 45 ended level, with both teams testing the other. The Nittany Lions managed to beat the Badgers in the dying embers of the game with a goal in the 85th minute. Despite 16 free-kick chances, the Badgers were unable to shoot more than three shots on goal, returning to Madison with a 0-1 loss.

Badger’s men are still finding their footing after years of disappointing results. New head coach Neil Jones also appears to be working on how he plans to coach the team in the future. The team is led by three experienced captains and has decent depth. The question is how the team plan will use it.

Wisconsin football is expected to be an exciting and energetic season for both teams with outstanding players and great coaching. Looks like UW excels at more than American football…

Waverly, Iowa. – The Macalester College women’s soccer team traveled to Iowa to take on the Wartburg Knights. Wartburg won the match, 6-0. Macalester is now 4-2-2 (1-1-0 MIAC).

The Knights took the lead in the fifth minute. Junior Ella Thomson (Palo Alto, Calif./Palo Alto) tried to tie the score, but the ball went just high.

Wheeling, WV – Since the start of Mountain East Conference (MEC) play, the Wheeling University men’s soccer team (2-3-1, 2-2-1) has enjoyed success in start of the season by clinging to 4th place in the conference. On Saturday, they will face one of their toughest tests of the season as they hit the road to take on the #6 Atlantic Region team at Gannon University. This will be the last non-conference test of the season for the Cardinals as they try to show they can compete with one of the best teams in the region.

In their last match, they faced the side ranked two places below Gannon at Notre Dame College and lost 3-0. The Cardinals held the Falcons at bay throughout the first half, conceding just one goal in the 20th minute of the game before the teams headed to the locker room. In the second half, the Cardinals created more chances, only trailing 7-3 but still couldn’t find the net. The Falcons scored two more goals in that second half and took the game to its final score of 3-0.

Despite the loss, the Cardinals got another solid effort from their pair of goaltenders who took to the field and kept their streak alive by allowing three or fewer goals each game. Flemming Sandt started and made six saves on nine shots faced while playing just over 71 minutes in goal. Five of those six games came in the first half of the game, including three saves after Notre Dame’s goal that made it a one-goal game. austin aaron came on to play the game final at 6:55 p.m. and did not face a shot on goal during that time. Wheeling goaltenders are averaging 1.67 goals against this season and have a combined save percentage of .655.

On the offensive side of the ball, the Cardinals are looking to find their rhythm and have been led by Diego Buenano and Richard Afolayanka. Buenano has found his footing lately, scoring a goal in two of the last three games in big storylines. Afolayanka is right there with him with two goals, coming against West Virginia Wesleyan and Alderson Broaddus and has been a leader for offense. With other attackers Harry Martin, Michael Martinand Christian Ruud gaining more experience with each other, they each try to elevate each other’s game and put Wheeling back on the scoreboard.

With conference play in full swing, the Cardinals are currently in a good position, clinging to fourth place in the conference. They are currently a game and a half ahead of West Virginia Wesleyan, but have tough tasks ahead as they still have Charleston and Davis & Elkins to play this season. Saturday’s game will be a good yardstick for the team as they see how they stack up against an Atlantic ranked opponent. They are looking to create more opportunities up front and set themselves up for success ahead of their rivalry game on Wednesday.

The game

The Cardinals and Golden Knights will meet for the ninth time in program history on Saturday, with Wheeling holding the all-time series record at 5-4. However, on the road it was a different story with Gannon winning three of the four meetings between the two teams in Erie, Pennsylvania. The teams have split each of the past seven meetings, with the last victory going to Gannon in a 2-0 affair at Bishop Schmitt Field last season.

Christian Ruud led the Cardinals in that game taking three shots, one on goal, while Michael Martin and Hugo Rodriguez each finished with two shots on goal. former cardinal Harry Firth would start the game in net and made five saves on seven shots faced throughout the night. Wheeling will be looking for its first win against the Golden Knights since the 2013 season when they beat them 3-1 at Wheeling.

AUSTIN — In a close game, the Minnesota West men’s soccer team lost 2-0 on the road to Riverland Community College on Wednesday.
“The game was pretty competitive early on,” West head coach Jordan Balster said. “Riverland managed to drive the ball forward and create chances but our defense was solid and we kept it scoreless until later in the first half. At half time we were down 0 -1. Riverland scored their second goal 12 minutes from the end of the game.”

Minnesota West’s goal, Balster said, was to work to move the ball forward and create their own opportunities. The Bluejays managed to close with a few free kicks and corners but still failed to convert.
Ulises Barrera put in a shot on goal with a free kick, but the Riverland keeper made the save. Guilherme Castro attempted a long-range shot that drifted wide late in the game. Meanwhile, Angel Flores made some big saves to keep the game close.
Minnesota West’s next game is Sept. 14 at Anoka-Ramsey at 4 p.m.
Balster said that despite Wednesday’s loss, his players had improved their communication. The team continues to improve their communication skills while working on combinations and other tactics to increase the chances of scoring.
