Both teams stayed compact in defense. A combined 46 fouls between the sides halted play constantly. Confident and, at times, acrobatic goalkeeping from SU’s Christian Miesch and Louisville’s Jake Gelnovatch kept the ball out of the net.The first half of Tuesday night’s match between Syracuse and Cornell, particularly the opening five minutes, was the exact opposite. Less than two minutes in, poor marking from the Orange’s backline gave the Big Red’s striker George Pedlow a wide-open chance at the back post, which he buried. Ninety seconds later, Massimo Ferrin’s lofted cross from a long-range free kick somehow skidded into the goal.Undisciplined defending or goalkeeping was at the center of all five goals as Syracuse (2-1-3, 0-0-1 Atlantic Coast) inched past Cornell (2-2), 3-2, in overtime on a clear Tuesday night at SU Soccer Stadium. The Orange fell behind twice and clawed back to even it both times before Noah Singelmann’s game-winner with three minutes remaining in the first overtime period.“It was a poor start to the match against a very good team,” SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “But [it was] a great response. We came back twice and found a way to win the game.”The victory snaps SU’s streak of three straight draws and marks the fourth consecutive game the Orange have gone to overtime.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textSyracuse hadn’t yet advanced the ball past midfield when the visitors opened the scoring. When Cornell’s Harry Fuller gathered the ball in ample space on the right wing, nobody tracked Pedlow, the Big Red’s main striker, as he darted towards the back post. By the time SU center back Dylan McDonald noticed Pedlow’s run, the ball was already on its way to him. Moments later, it nestled in the bottom right corner of the net. Before 90 seconds had passed, the Orange were level. Ryan Raposo won a free kick roughly 35 yards from the goal, a distance Ferrin usually doesn’t shoot from. The senior forward opted to loop a cross toward the back post in hopes of a teammate heading it back across goal or into the net. Rather, the ball went untouched, bounced high off the ground and into the top right corner past an unprepared Cornell goalkeeper Ryan Shellow.“If you can put good balls in dangerous areas, you’ve got a chance,” McIntyre said. “We were hoping somebody would get a touch. But it went in, it was an important goal.”The game’s next goal came at the expense of another goalkeeping error, this time from Miesch. Cornell won a free kick from just inside the halfway point, Fuller launched it into the box and Miesch mistimed his move from the goal. The SU goalkeeper rose to catch the ball but instead punched it to the ground. It fell to Cornell’s Ryan Bayne, who poked it through a flurry of players and into an empty net.“I was going to come out for sure. My idea was to catch the ball,” Miesch said. “I should have punched it. Looking back at it, it’s easy to say that now.”Just as it did after Pedlow’s opener, the Orange responded strongly. With just over 10 minutes remaining in the first half, SU’s Simon Triantafillou chipped a ball into the box toward Raposo and Big Red midfielder Brandon Morales. The two 5-foot-7 technicians battled for position, and when the ball came, Raposo was on top. SU’s leading goals corer towered over the back of Morales, sending him to the floor, and nodded the ball to Severin Soerlie. The SU forward took a touch, turned, and laced the ball into the net for his first goal of the season. After a scoreless second half and opening five minutes of the first overtime, Singelmann, who has started three games at center back this season, notched the winner. Senior John-Austin Ricks found the freshman wide-open and in an advanced position from a throw-in, Singelmann drove into the penalty area one-on-one against a Cornell defender, side-stepped, and slotted the game-ending strike into the bottom left corner. The goal was his first-ever for the Orange.“Noah showed he has quality,” McIntyre said. “When the game opened up a bit, he showed he could influence the game. To finish with his non-dominant left foot was a reward.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img

Mustangs face another heavyweight on its path to a state championship

Please enter your email address here Gov. DeSantis says new moment-of-silence law in public schools protects religious freedom 11-2 Dr. Phillips travels to Wekiva for a final four matchupThe classic example of a “Cinderella Story” or a “Fairytale Season” typically involves a team of lesser talent winning games against stronger teams by last-second heroics and come-from-behind miracle stories. Certainly, the Wekiva Mustangs have been described in this manner, but does the glass slipper really fit?The Mustangs used a strangling defense and a second-half scoring spree to overwhelm the #1 seeded Winter Park Wildcats 33-6 to win the 8-A Region 1 final and advance to the state semifinals for the first time in the school’s history. The win gave the Mustangs a 12-1 record and evened the score with Winter Park, who earlier in the season beat them 10-6.But here’s the thing… the Wildcats came into the game undefeated, ranked first in the region, and had an air of inevitably after a come-from-behind 34-27 win against Apopka the week before.Photo from AGO Action Photos.That inevitable air shifted, however, when Wekiva rolled them up on their home field.The Mustangs simply looked bigger, stronger, and faster – particularly on defense where they overwhelmed the Wildcats, who never came close to sustaining a drive, and only scored on a breakaway 65-yard-touchdown in the third quarter.The victory put to rest a winning streak Winter Park held over Wekiva that both knocked them out of the playoffs in 2016, and was their only loss this year.Now Wekiva heads home where another heavyweight awaits them in the state semifinals – the Dr. Phillips Panthers. Wekiva beat the Panthers 14-0 in October, which was its first victory over them in the school’s history. Dr. Phillips leads the overall series 4-1.The Panthers are 11-2 on the season, but after successive losses to Wekiva, and Apopka in the span of four days, have run-off seven straight victories, won their district, and made it to the state semifinals for the second straight season.Terrence Moore catches a 65-yard touchdown as the Wekiva Mustangs defeated the Winter Park Wildcats 33-6. Photo from AGO Action Photos.The Mustangs are on a 10-game winning streak, also won their district, and are in the state’s 8A final four for the very first time.The winner of this game will play either Miami High (11-1) or Delray Beach Atlantic (11-1) in 8A state final at Orlando’s Camping World Stadium next week.
