Syracuse falls to Mercyhurst, 4-3, on late OT winner

first_imgAfter four minutes and fifty-nine seconds into the overtime period, Syracuse had lost. The Orange had battled all game. Had come from behind twice. But after three whole periods and nearly all of overtime, Laker forward Maggie Knott took the puck in the SU corner and thrust it toward the net. After it pinballed between a forest of legs, the puck found its way into the back of the SU net. Orange skaters bowed their heads, their arms sagged. Goaltender Ady Cohen slammed her stick against the post, her frustration flowing out. SU’s bench somberly emptied out before quietly shaking hands and saluting the crowd at Tennity Ice Pavilion. Syracuse (6-14-1, 5-2-1 College Hockey America) was bested in overtime by Mercyhurst (12-8-2, 6-2-0), 4-3, on Saturday night. The Orange had regained first place in the conference just 24 hours prior. They had scored eight goals to defeat the Lakers and claim the top spot. But on a night that could have ended with head coach Paul Flanagan earning his 400th win as a college coach, SU had to fight and scrap just to stay level.“We were stuck at our end for a while there, we got to learn and get pucks out and execute at the end,” Mae Batherson said.Mercyhurst slotted the only goal of the first period, a scrappy shot that squeezed under the right pad of Cohen. Six minutes into the second, though, Madison Beishuizen picked up the rebound from her own breakaway shot to equalize the game at one. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textFour minutes later, Anonda Hoppner won the faceoff for the Orange in their offensive zone and played it back to Lindsay Eastwood on the blue line, who sent the puck to the stick of Mae Batherson. Batherson ripped a slapshot from the top of the circle, rifling the puck off the crossbar and in for the 4-on-4 goal, giving Syracuse the 2-1 lead.But the lead was short-lived. Less than two minutes later, Rachel Marmen capitalized on her breakaway – the result of a blistering Mercyhurst breakout – and evened things up at two. “That just revolves around, you know, sticking with it, sticktoitiveness, if that’s a word,” Flanagan said, “just sticking to our plan and, you know, having to make plays and critical junctures.”Once again, Syracuse’s penalty woes factored into their loss tonight. Emma Polaski was sent to the box late in the second period for hooking. Mercyhurst quickly recorded four shots on Cohen, with the fifth shot off of junior forward Alexa Vasko finally breaking through.That’s why the Lakers held a 3-2 lead over the Orange heading into the third. A back-and-forth game had tilted in Mercyhurst’s favor, and Cohen (39 saves) continued to bail out the Orange in their zone and limit the deficit to one. As the third period approached the halfway mark, Polaski took the puck into the Mercyhurst zone and dumped a high shot on goalie Kennedy Blair, who had trouble smothering the shot. The puck rolled off her sweater and onto the ice. Syracuse defender Eastwood was there at the top of the crease to bury it home. “That was a communication on our end,” said Eastwood. “Emma [Polaski] knew what she had and she took the right shot and gave us a good rebound and we capitalized.”Tied at three, the clock ran down, and the two teams entered overtime. Like the three periods that preceded it, both Syracuse and Mercyhurst traded shots at their opponent’s netminders — only for them to be turned away. But in the final 90 seconds, Mercyhurst dominated, spending nearly the entire time in the Syracuse zone until its final shot hit the back of the net. The time on the clock was 0.1, the final score 4-3.  “You know, you win 8-3,” Flanagan said after the game, his record still at 399 wins, “you walk out of here last night feeling pretty good about yourself. Then you come back here, today is a different day, and I don’t know if we transitioned real well last night preparing for today. So we need to do the same things.”  Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on January 11, 2020 at 9:08 pm Contact Will: wrhentsc@syr.edulast_img read more

Shohei Ohtani activated as Angels’ DH, batting 3rd tonight

first_img“Having him behind Mike, if Mike’s getting on base at the clip he gets on base, they’re going to have to hold a runner on first, and that will open up a lane over there as well,” said General Manager Billy Eppler, who made the trip to Detroit. “You’re adding a middle-of-the-order bat, and when you can do that, it can help everybody throughout the lineup.”Trout said it is “huge” to have Ohtani back in the lineup.“He’s super talented,” Trout said. “It’s special. We’re excited to have him back. He’s ready.”Ausmus said that Ohtani will play essentially every day, against righties and lefties. The Angels have no plan to limit Ohtani’s workload because of his rehab. He will play as often as he and the medical staff deem he can.When Ohtani hits, he’ll continue to wear the protective elbow guard he wore last year, and when he’s on base, he will have a different elbow guard that protects his arm from anything that could happen sliding. Angels’ poor pitching spoils an Albert Pujols milestone Jose Suarez’s rocky start sinks Angels in loss to Astros Angels offense breaks out to split doubleheader with Astros Angels’ Shohei Ohtani spending downtime working in outfield Although Ohtani will not pitch this season, he will continue his throwing progression. At some point, Ohtani will be throwing with a level of intensity that could possibly require him to be unavailable as a hitter, but if that happens it wouldn’t be until he’s deep into his routine of throwing off a mound, sometime in September, Eppler said.Ohtani returned to action seven months and one week after undergoing Tommy John surgery, reaching a significant milestone in a rehab process that Eppler said has so far gone without any hitches.Now, the Angels have regained a hitter who last year batted .285 with 22 homers and a .925 OPS in 367 plate appearances, winning the Americana League Rookie of the Year.“I just want him to be the best version of himself,” Eppler said. “I think he’ll bring the tools we’ve all seen, the speed, the power, the plate discipline. He’s basically finishing spring training and it can take guys a little time to get into the flow and comfort of their routines.”Ohtani’s return created a ripple throughout the roster.It means that now Albert Pujols and Justin Bour will mostly need to split time at first base in order to see any action.The Angels also designated slumping veteran Peter Bourjos for assignment, which leaves the team with a somewhat inflexible roster. The Angels have an eight-man bullpen and a three-man bench, which is one more pitcher than typical. Their position player roster also includes a player, Ohtani, who doesn’t play a position. Two other players, Pujols and Bour, play only first base. Two others are catchers.It places even more value on the versatility of David Fletcher, Tommy La Stella and Zack Cozart, who was activated from the injured list on Tuesday. Luís Rengifo was optioned to clear room for Cozart.La Stella plays all four infield spots and Fletcher and Cozart play all but first. Fletcher is also now the fourth outfielder.“Fletcher becomes even more valuable,” Eppler said. “He’s doing a good job in the outfield. The Swiss army knife nature of David Fletcher is very valuable and allows us to have this roster construction.”ALLEN RETURNSCody Allen spent the minimum time on the injured list with a sore back before returning on Tuesday.Related Articlescenter_img PreviousLos Angeles Angels’ Shohei Ohtani smiles with manager Brad Ausmus, left, before a baseball game against the Detroit Tigers in Detroit, Tuesday, May 7, 2019.

(The injury) is by no means an excuse for poor performance. That was just a bad stretch of baseball right there.”Allen nonetheless said he’s optimistic that feeling better can lead to pitching better. Ausmus said they’d like to keep in Allen in low-leverage spots for now.In order to create a roster spot for Allen, the Angels designated Chris Stratton for assignment.
