  • Syracuse men’s lacrosse opponent preview: What to know about No. 3 seed Duke

    first_imgIn the loss, Syracuse won just 15-of-34 faceoffs, including the crucial one in overtime.“That’s a great question,” head coach John Desko said when asked about Williams’ ability to win a game-changing faceoff. “He gets us the ball early and puts us in that position.“We’ve got to learn to play when we don’t have the ball.”The Duke report: The Blue Devils’ offense runs through its midfield with All-ACC players Class and Myles Jones leading the way. Class leads the conference in goals per game with 2.8 while Jones is second in the conference with 2.13 assists per game.And don’t forget about their attack, either. Justin Guterding scored the game-winning goal in an overtime victory over Notre Dame on Friday night in the semifinals. He has scored 38 goals this season and is the benefactor of other players garnering defensive attention. Attack Case Matheis has 23 goals and 27 assists, too, to round out the well-balanced offense.Faceoff specialist Kyle Rowe has won 63.7 percent of his faceoffs this season and won a staggering 18-of-23 against the Fighting Irish on Friday night. His ability to give the Blue Devils possession after possession helps fuel their high-powered offense.Duke’s offense averages 13.65 goals per game, which ranks fourth in the country, and has scored in double digits all but three times this season. The Blue Devils also average 8.38 assists per game, which is sixth in the nation.How Syracuse beats Duke: The biggest thing the Orange has to do is limit Jones and Class. They are the Blue Devils’ two most dynamic offensive players and if either one of them is given even just a little bit of space, they have the ability to burn SU. Class did it in March and Jones has a cannon of a shot that he could unload from 15-plus yards out at any time.Syracuse has struggled defending midfielders all season (see: Johns Hopkins’ Cody Radziewicz with three goals, Cornell’s Clarke Petterson with three goals, UNC’s Michael Tagliaferri with four goals). But with starting short-stick midfielder Tom Grimm back from injury on Friday, the Orange has a boost in that area. In the first matchup against the Blue Devils, Syracuse put its long pole on Jones and Class made them pay. Whether SU sticks to that plan or changes it up, its’ defensive midfielders will have a tough task either way.Numbers to know:15.38 — Average number of turnovers Duke commits per game, which ranks 54th out of 68 Division I teams.13.65 — Average number of goals per game Duke scores, which ranks fourth in the country.3 — Syracuse and Duke have played three one-goal games in their last four meetings.Player to watch: Justin GuterdingWith all of the attention on Class and Jones, Guterding has feasted on opportunities right in front of the net. The All-ACC player often gets sometimes lost when mentioning Duke’s lethal threats but his 38 goals and 27 assists are a testament to him capitalizing on chances. Against Syracuse on March 26, Guterding scored three goals on three shots. His efficiency is just another thing that makes him dangerous inside. Against North Carolina on Friday, SU extended out to stop UNC’s shooters and sacrificed the core of its defense, where several Tar Heels goals came from. If the Orange sticks to that strategy, Guterding will have more chances to score. Comments No. 4 seed Syracuse (9-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) will take on No. 3 seed Duke (10-6, 2-2) with the ACC championship on the line on Sunday at noon at Fifth Third Bank Stadium in Kennesaw, Georgia.The title game is a rematch of the Blue Devils’ 16-15 overtime win on March 26. The Orange enters Sunday having won four of its last five after a three-game losing streak in the middle of the season. SU beat No. 1 seed North Carolina, 10-7 on Friday night. Three different players, Derek DeJoe, Jordan Evans and Nate Solomon, each scored two goals to pace Syracuse. The victory gave the Orange nine wins for the ninth consecutive year.Here’s everything you need to know before SU plays for a conference title on Sunday.All-time series: Syracuse leads 9-6Last time they played: This was the Deemer Class show. The Duke midfielder had seven goals and two assists and helped carry a late comeback after Syracuse had a five-goal lead in the third and a four-goal lead with just 15 minutes left in regulation.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn overtime, Duke won the opening faceoff and scored on its only possession. Chad Cohan caught a pass on the interior of Syracuse’s defense, dodged past three defenders and delivered an underhand bounce shot.

  • Summer Camp Offers Glimpse Into a Public Safety Career

    first_img“It’s really, really great to see what they are doing, so I know what I’m going to be doing in the future,” she said. “This is a week of opportunity for our young adults to come in (and) have an experience about law and public safety through our Monmouth County Police Academy,” Monmouth County Sheriff Shaun Golden said. “They take a week out of their summer. They could be on the beach, they could be doing some recreation, doing something else. But they’re here dedicated to learning about law enforcement and public safety.” July 8 to 12 marked Sheriff’s Youth Week, a program the Monmouth County Sheriff’s Office started in 1992 with 16 students. The program is more than just a week of summer camp for children. Rather, it is aimed at young men and women with an interest in a career in law enforcement. While many students were returning participants in the program, others, like Dori Valentine, were there for the first time. “They are not allowed to have their cellphones,” said John Cuccia, the assistant director of youth week and a supervisor at the sheriff’s 911 center. “It’s funny, because I told them that on the first day. We took their cellphones and told them to put them in the bags that we gave them. And every few hours, I would sit there and go, ‘My God, you guys have made it four hours without a cellphone. Are you alive?’ ” As he spoke, a group of teens marched past, all wearing matching T-shirts, baseball caps and black pants on a hot morning. “If you need water, fill up your water bottle now,” an instructor called out to them. “Who’s first?” he asked. A young woman raised her hand and got into the seat. “We want them to understand it’s a tough job, it’s a great job,” said executive undersheriff Ted Freeman, the director of youth week. “It’s a rewarding experience.” By Philip Sean Curran Their days began at 7:45 a.m. and ended at 4 p.m. – days filled with work and sweat. As a rising junior at Red Bank Regional High School, she aspires to attend college at either the U.S. Military Academy at West Point or the Coast Guard Academy. She said she would like to work for the FBI one day. “Most people go to work and they make a living,” said Freeman, who got into law enforcement in 1966 in Spring Lake. “We make a difference in law enforcement. Every day, any police officer, any corrections officer, goes to work (and) they have an opportunity to make a difference in someone’s life. And that is worth more than the pay and it’s worth more than the benefits.” “Her longest successful track is 5.9 miles, eight hours after the guy crashed his car and fled on foot,” Kroeper said.center_img On the grounds of Monmouth County’s Situational Training and Response Simulator facility in Freehold, more than 100 teenagers from the county got a first-hand taste of what it’s like to be in law enforcement – from flying drones to getting up close and personal with a bloodhound that’s been used to hunt down murderers. Youth Week has a high return rate, with about 45 percent of students having previously attended. Through the years, some alumni of the program have gone into law enforcement, including one who decided to forgo becoming a nun and instead became a police officer in Alexandria, Virginia, Freeman said. Mya Ostermiller was a first-time attendee of youth week as well. At 18, she graduated this year from Middletown South High School and, bound for Kutztown University in Pennsylvania later this summer, she said she wants to do something in law enforcement as a career. “We have drill instruction every morning, every afternoon we have an hour of (physical training),” Freeman said. “It’s just like the academy.” At the facility in Freehold, Sheriff’s Officer Kurt Kroeper, a member of the K-9 unit, was holding forth with Skye, a 5 1⁄2-year-old bloodhound. The students stood in front listening as he talked about the dog and some of the work she has done around the state. “We want them aware that, if you’re vaping or if you’re thinking about it, these are the health hazards and health hazards affect a police officer’s ability to perform,” Freeman said. Through the week the teens also had a chance to hear from guest speakers from various law enforcement agencies. One included Doug Collier, a retired agent with the federal Drug Enforcement Administration who is now a Monmouth University professor. He spoke about vaping, the practice of using electronic cigarettes. And there wasn’t a smartphone in sight. FREEHOLD – Inside a darkened room normally used for law enforcement training, Tracey Tift set up a driving simulator that gave a bunch of teenagers a sense of what it’s like to be on the road behind the wheel of a police car. “It definitely opens up my eyes and I totally get a new perspective on what people in police specifically really do out in the real world,” said Valentine, 16. This article was first published in the July 18 – 24, 2019 print edition of The Two River Times.last_img read more
