Fast reaction: 3 quick takeaways from No. 1 Syracuse’s 15-8 win over Cornell

first_imgIn its first game since being named the No. 1 team, Syracuse (9-1, 3-0 Atlantic Coast) defeated unranked Cornell (3-7, 2-2 Ivy), 15-8. The Orange extended its win streak to seven games and now has its best 10-game start to a season since 2011. Nick Mariano, Nate Solomon and Jordan Evans all finished with a hat trick for SU.Here are three takeaways from Tuesday night’s win inside the Carrier Dome.Syracuse uses 10-0 run to pull away from CornellThe Orange struggled to get off to a strong start Tuesday night, but that all changed after Sergio Salcido found Brendan Bomberry on a man-up situation. Bomberry’s goal pulled SU within one and started what would become a 10-0 run.In that string of 10 goals, the starting attack scored seven. Evans had his three during the run while Bomberry and Nate Solomon each added a pair of goals. Freshman Jamie Trimboli also added a buzzer-beating goal to enter the half.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSix different Syracuse players scored on the run that was the difference maker. The hole became too deep for Cornell to dig out, as SU walked away with a comfortable win.Jordan Evans has first multi-goal performance since Feb. 25For most of the season, Evans has struggled to create offense. He transitioned into becoming more of a facilitator and less of a scorer. The last time he scored more than one goal was against Army on Feb. 25.But on Tuesday, Evans led the Orange with five points. He scored a hat trick for the first time since the season opener against Siena and assisted on two more. The senior attack made smarter decisions and created multiple scoring opportunities for SU.A Cornell shot that went off the post and was sent flying 60 yards the opposite direction. Evans grabbed the ball that went out of bounds and found Solomon waiting in front of the goal, who scored and gave SU its first lead since the first goal of the game.For the third time all season, Evans had more than a pair of points. Against Duke and Johns Hopkins, he was goalless. But on Tuesday night, the Cornell defense struggled to stop him.The old Ben Williams returns at XBen Williams’ midseason slump seems to be a thing of the past after the faceoff specialist dominated on Tuesday night. Even while winning 17-of-28 the previous week at Hobart, there were many times where Williams didn’t look like his normal, dominant self. That all changed against Cornell.The All-American opened the first half winning 9-of-12 faceoffs, creating possession on offense and allowing the defense to take a break — something that has not been the case the past few games. His success at the X carried into the second half where Williams won all but one faceoff in the third quarter.The senior was a big contributor to advancing the Syracuse 10-0 run, finishing the day with a season-high 76-percent success rate at the X (19-of-25).

EGBA urges German authorities to reconsider ‘detrimental’ proposals

first_img Submit StumbleUpon Share Share Related Articles EGBA calls for enhanced collaboration on consumer rights August 11, 2020 The European Gaming and Betting Association (EGBA) has welcomed the progress made on Germany’s new draft state treaty for gambling regulation, but has urged the gambling authorities to reconsider some of the proposals made.The proposals made which have focused upon consumer protection, state tax revenues and regulatory oversight of gambling have been backed by the EGBA.However, it emphasised that some of the proposals made in the current draft treaty, such as the imposition of advertising restrictions, curbs on player account activity and live betting restrictions ‘would be detrimental and counterproductive to the intentions of the regulation’.Maarten Haijer, Secretary General of EGBA, commented: “This is a positive development towards bringing Germany’s gambling regulation into the 21st century. The challenge will be to deliver a new regulation which is fit for the digital age we live in, which provides a safer gambling environment for consumers and enables a well-regulated and well-channelled market.“We look forward to providing formal comments to the proposals in due course and continuing a constructive dialogue with the German authorities.”The new treaty, if agreed at the Minister-Presidents meeting on 5 March, would replace the existing second state treaty and come into force on 1 July, 2021.It aims to regulate Germany’s gambling activity in an effective way and ensure gambling activity takes place within the legal, regulated gambling environment, particularly in the online sector.Despite German treaty reforms, the EU has continually rejected Germany’s regulatory framework, underlining that German online gambling maintains restrictive business conditions as Schleswig-Holstein chose to limit operator licensing – deemed an infringement upon foreign competition.

River flows through Leavitts State of the City address with video

first_imgThe city of Vancouver has redesigned its website to make it more user-friendly.A “find it fast” section has links for several options, including paying bills or parking tickets, reporting problems or applying for building permits.The Columbia River was the central theme of Vancouver Mayor Tim Leavitt’s State of the City address Wednesday, which included praise for many and sharp criticism for few.“As the largest river in the Pacific Northwest, she is our community’s lifeblood, and has been so for thousands of years,” said Leavitt, speaking to a crowd of about 160 people at the Water Resources Education Center. “The river brought us together for trade, for culture, for nature and for community life. And today? Our Vancouver neighborhoods and businesses are connected, from the Port of Vancouver to Vancouver Lake and Burnt Bridge Creek to Wood’s Landing, by inland streams that feed our watershed, nurture our wildlife and green our forests.”“Indeed, the city of Vancouver incorporated on this great river, long before Washington became a state,” Leavitt said. The defining river also represents the city’s future, he said.City officials have a large waterfront park and an extension of the Waterfront Renaissance Trail in their sights. In 2012, crews punched through the BNSF Railway berm south of City Hall, offering a view from the end of Esther Street to the river that had been hidden for more than a century.After showing new drawings of the proposed park, Leavitt listed several projects, finishing with the Columbia River Crossing.Starting his sentence with, “And,” Leavitt paused for laughter as the audience correctly predicted what he was about to say. “Are those seat belts in those chairs? Buckle up, ladies and gentleman,” Leavitt said. “There is no more important opportunity for our city and our region than completion of the Columbia River Crossing. Five miles of highway improvements, bringing aged and decrepit infrastructure into the 21st century.”Leavitt praised Oregon lawmakers for approving that state’s share of the funding, and federal lawmakers for placing the CRC in the top five most important projects nationwide. He thanked U.S. Sens. Patty Murray and Maria Cantwell and then representatives from “south of the river,” notably leaving U.S. Rep. Jaime Herrera Beutler, R-Camas, off his list.last_img read more
