Ground and pound, turnover time and more from Syracuse’s 41-24 win at Wake Forest

first_img Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on November 3, 2018 at 3:35 pm Contact Josh: jlschafe@syr.edu | @Schafer_44 Turnover timeIn the first quarter, Hartman dropped back to pass, but before he finished his throwing motion, dropped the ball. McKinley Williams snatched the loose ball with one hand, granting Syracuse possession at the Wake Forest 10-yard line. The Orange punched in a touchdown four plays later.In the third quarter, the mishaps of the Demon Deacons offensive line proved costly once more. As Hartman started his handoff with the running back, safety Andre Cisco dove in between the two, jarring the ball loose. This time, an Evan Foster recovery negated Wake’s ability to fully mount a comeback and once again granted Syracuse favorable field position. The Orange chewed off more than three minutes of clock en route to a field goal after the fumble.With a little under six minutes left in the game, Hartman lofted a pass into the corner of the end zone. It fell short, though, and landed in the hands of Syracuse cornerback Chris Fredrick, ending Wake Forest’s last hope for a comeback, as it trailed 41-24. WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — No. 19 Syracuse (7-2, 4-2 Atlantic Coast) defeated Wake Forest (4-5, 1-4), 41-24, on Saturday at BB&T Field. In Syracuse’s first November win under head coach Dino Babers, the Orange dominated on the ground, rushing for 264 yards and five touchdowns. Syracuse forced three turnovers and sacked Wake Forest five times while allowing 434 total yards of offense.Ground and poundIn Syracuse’s first drive of the second half it threw three times in 10 plays. Moe Neal carried up the middle, went right and stumbled forward for seven yards. Three plays later, Eric Dungey rushed right on a quarterback power, outrunning the defensive end. He planted his right foot and cut back up the middle of the field, shaking off a weak tackle which didn’t bring arms.A few more quick-hitting passes, and a Dungey brought the Orange down to the goal line where the drive ended with a five-yard Chris Elmore touchdown run.On Syracuse’s next drive, Dungey dashed through the middle of the Wake Forest defense for a 26-yard touchdown run. Dungey didn’t throw a touchdown Saturday. It was the Orange’s first win without a passing touchdown since a 2014 win at Wake Forest.Party in the backfieldWake Forest’s freshman quarterback Sam Hartman spent much of Saturday’s game lying on his back. Early in the first quarter, middle linebacker Ryan Guthrie blitzed between the center and guard of Wake Forest’s offensive line. As Hartman tried to escape to the outside, Guthrie pulled Hartman’s feet out from under him for a three-yard loss.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textGuthrie’s second sack of the day came in the next quarter. This time, the linebacker ran free through the line of scrimmage directly at Hartman. As Hartman tried to duck underneath the tackle, Guthrie swallowed the quarterback for a sack.The trend continued throughout Syracuse’s five sacks. Hartman dropped back with little room to maneuver and was taken down by a streaking Syracuse defender. In the second quarter, a Kenneth Ruff bullrush led to the junior’s first career sack as Hartman tried to step up in the pocket, but landed in the right arm of Ruff.last_img read more

Cerro Gordo supervisors amend pandemic travel policy for county employees

first_imgMASON CITY — The Cerro Gordo County Board of Supervisors today amended the COVID-19 travel restrictions imposed on county employees. The county’s director of administrative services Tom Meyer says with the travel recommendations being changed from the Centers for Disease Control on being under quarantine upon return, it was time to update the county’s policy.  “We had some requirements for employees involving any travel outside of Iowa that would require a 14-day quarantine from work. Given what’s happening, and also some of the changes in CDC recommendations, I spoke to our public health director. They are not necessarily recommending a ban on travel outside the state. I think the board could amend that to any travel outside of the country would require a quarantine.” Meyer says they still would like for now to have county employees still report on their travel in the event they go to an area of the country where COVID-19 is still a hot spot.  “I would still like to leave in there that they would still report to let us know if they are traveling out of state, so if there is a hot spot and we have to evaluate that on a case-by-case basis.” The supervisors unanimously approved the change in the policy.last_img read more

Early loss sends Nelson Selects to consolation round at B.C. Soccer Provincial B Cup

first_imgAn early round loss spelled the end of the line for the Nelson Selects at the B.C. Soccer Provincial B U15 Boy’s Cup Sunday at Kings Park in Penticton.Host Pinnacles from Penticton scored early and often en route to a 7-1 shellacking of the Selects in consolation play.The loss dropped Nelson into eighth spot in the tournament.“Naturally we are disappointed with our final placement but the difference was so tight from first to fourth in our group . . . just a one-game difference,” commented co-coach Dan Szabo.“We certainly belonged in this tournament and competed well and if not for a few errors and breakdowns could have challenged for gold and were so close to the bronze game.”“You only get three games to determine your placing,” Szabo added.Nolan Percival scored the only goal of the game for Nelson against Penticton.The Selects opened with a 4-1 loss to Comox Valley in a game the Kootenay Reps dominated in the early going.Two first half goals by Comox Valley, one on a penalty shot, gave the Island Reps a 2-0 lead. James Miller pulled Nelson to within a goal.With the Selects pressing for the equalizer, Comox Valley put the game away with two goals in the final three minutes.Nelson bounced back Friday by stopping West Vancouver Spuraways 3-2. The teams exchanged goals, Nelson’s Percival scoring, before the Lower Mainland team took over the game scoring to make it 2-1.In the second half Spencer Szabo, on a fine individual play, tied the game before Micah May pushed the ball past the West Vancouver defence to notch the winner.Still in the running for a medal, Nelson saw its hopes fade away with a 3-1 loss to Vancouver Point Grey.“A win or a tie in this game would have resulted in Nelson playing in the bronze medal game,” Szabo said.Once again Nelson fell behind before the trio of Szabo, May and Percival, the latter scoring the goal, combined to pull Nelson to 2-1.Pressing for the tying goal Nelson saw its medal hopes dashed when Point Grey scored an insurance goal on goalkeeper Harrison Giles.“(The coaching staff is) proud of our boys . . .. They really worked for it,” said Szabo.“We have come so far with this group since last season,” he added. “We reached our goal of making provincials and now have a good idea of where we are with teams from across the province. “We will only get better.”sports@thenelsondaily.comlast_img read more
