RIT (11-14-4, 7-8-0 College Hockey America) senior Mallory Rushton’s goal 49 seconds into the second period was the difference in SU’s (8-19-2, 8-6-1) first conference loss in February. SU nearly doubled RIT in first period shots and controlled possession, winning 12 of 19 faceoffs. Despite the solid start, SU gave up the lead when Rushton broke through. More of the same continued through the second, as Syracuse out-shot the Tigers 17-11 but couldn’t capitalize. Senior Brooke Avery, who had four shots in the game, hit the pipe. SU’s leading scorer Emma Polaski paced the Orange offensively with eight shots on net and four other skaters recorded four chances. Defenseman Allie Munroe launched 18 shots, but only four ended up on goal. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textAdy Cohen, making her second straight start in net, stopped 25 shots. She earned CHA Goalkeeper of the Week last week by recording her first shutout of the season against Mercyhurst. As a team, the Orange struggled on power plays, going 0-for-3 on the night. Entering the night, SU led the conference in power play goals per game (0.93). RIT and Syracuse meet again tomorrow night in Tennity Ice Pavilion at 7 p.m.last_img read more


Red Sox trade news: Boston acquires Andrew Cashner from Orioles

Posted On Aug 16 2020 by

first_imgBut even if he isn’t, or if he is just a reliever in the postseason simply due to roster constraints and trying to get the best pitchers onto the staff, Cashner’s stuff plays up out of the bullpen.He tones it down as a starter but could still hit the high 90s in short stints. Boston has added a good pitcher as either a starter or reliever. That is the big news for the Red Sox.But does this mean the team is done dealing? It’s doubtful. MLB trade rumors: Tigers’ Matthew Boyd monitored by at least 5 teams The Red Sox have added a starting pitcher.Boston acquired Andrew Cashner and cash considerations from the Orioles in exchange for minor league infielder Noelberth Romero and minor league outfielder Elio Prado, the team announced Saturday. MLB trade rumors: Here’s who the Tigers could want from teams targeting Matthew Boyd The #RedSox today acquired RHP Andrew Cashner and cash considerations from the Baltimore Orioles in exchange for minor league INF Noelberth Romero and minor league OF Elio Prado.Boston’s 40-man roster is now at 40.— Red Sox (@RedSox) July 13, 2019The defending World Series champions have been rumored to be looking for pitching help over the last few weeks and they have now taken action.With Cashner it remains to be seen exactly how they’ll use him. He is in the middle of a very good year for Baltimore as he has posted a 9-3 record with a 3.83 ERA, but the Red Sox have a pretty well set rotation even if it has underachieved. Related News MLB trade rumors: Mets want ‘multiple top prospects’ in exchange for Noah Syndergaard However, Boston is supposed to get Nathan Eovaldi back soon from injury, but that doesn’t mean Cashner won’t start. Eovaldi has been rumored to be making a move to the bullpen when he gets back so Cashner very well could be a starter down the stretch for the Red Sox.last_img read more


City of Olympia Offers Matching Grants For New Parklets

Posted On Aug 6 2020 by

first_imgFacebook0Tweet0Pin0 Submitted by City of OlympiaCity of Olympia’s Parking & Business Improvement Area (PBIA) is offering matching grants of up to $3,500 each for the creation of new parklets in downtown Olympia. Businesses, non-profit associations, and community groups can submit parklet design concepts by 5:00 PM, May 31, 2013. All grant money provided by the PBIA is intended to help offset the initial cost associated with the supplies and materials needed for the construction of the parklets.What are Parklets?Parklets are parking spaces converted into “mini parks” providing space for people to sit, converse, and enjoy the city around them.PBIA chair, Darren Mills, says “Downtown Olympia is in need of public gathering spaces and parklets not only provide a space for people to gather but widen our somewhat narrow sidewalks.” In 2012, The PBIA awarded similar matching grants to Darby’s Café and Jakes on 4th which resulted in the creation of the first two parklets in downtown Olympia. “People of all ages are taking advantage of the parklets as a place to see friends, hang out, and relax,” says Rob Cameron, owner of Jakes on 4th. Sara Reilly, owner of Darby’s Café, says, “We’ve had an overwhelmingly positive response to the parklet from customers and people just walking by.”Mills said, “One of best outcomes of parklets is the partnerships that they create between the sponsoring business owner, the city, PBIA and the public. They also bring economic benefit to the city by encouraging people to come downtown and spend dollars in our locally owned businesses.”To learn more about parklets and future downtown projects, please visit the Downtown Project page on the City of Olympia website. For additional information on parklet development and how to apply for a parklet in front of your establishment, please feel free to contact the City of Olympia Downtown Liaison, Brian Wilson, at 360.709.2790 or via email at bwilson1@ci.olympia.wa.us.last_img read more


Regional roller derby team set to attend national competition

Posted On Aug 3 2020 by

first_imgWest Kootenay Roller Derby’s all-star team has managed to climb to the top of the heap in Canadian Roller Derby, and they’ve done it in a remarkably quick fashion. The Kootenay Kannibelles are gearing up for some high-calibre derby at a national level tournament set to take place at West Edmonton Mall’s Ice Palace March 15-17. Belles captain and West Kootenay Roller Derby League marketing and media director Amber Harper, who is best known as ‘Pantsoff’, is excited that what she describes as their “rag-tag troupe of mismatched-jersey-wearing ladies” are getting the opportunity to represent British Columbia in the first ever Roller Derby Association of Canada’s Canadian National Championships. No small feat, as she explains that they’ve “only been playing for two seasons as a team; most of (them) only just learned how to skate with the birth of West Kootenay Roller Derby, so this is pretty incredible.” The Belles are ranked sixth in the country (out of 101 travel teams), which earned them a spot in the tournament. However, the blood-splattered team is entering nationals with a new roster, featuring some new all-star players ready to make their mark on Canadian roller derby, bruise by well-earned bruise. Up against some top teams – including E-Ville Roller Derby (Edmonton, AB), Central – Saskatoon Roller Derby League (Saskatoon, SK), Pile O’ Bones Derby Club (Regina, SK), Atlantic – Muddy River Rollers (Moncton, NB) and Fog City Rollers (Saint John, NB) – the Belles are fiercely gearing up for some hard-hitting derby and have their eyes firmly on the gold medal prize. With an impressive 8-1 record last season, BC’s dark-horse team is certainly rolling into this, their third competitive season, hungrier for results than ever. After debuting at the Roller Derby Associations of Canada’s Western Tournament in 2011, the Belles shocked both fans and fellow skaters by finishing fifth after only one loss – a five-point nail-biting triumph by Red Deer’s Belladonnas. Their competitive appetite not sated, the Belles then went on to take second place in the RDAC Western Tournament in June 2012, after coming out on the losing side of a hard-fought battle against Terminal City Roller Girls’ All Stars, who secured their victory by 84 points. With this history in mind, it’s no wonder these ladies are approaching this tournament with ferocious appetites for victory. The team is currently busy prepping for spring, not only on but also off the track as they fundraise to help offset the costs of travel and accommodation (they are also looking for season sponsors). The Belles are hoping to raise funds through the Fundscript program where they sell gift cards for major retailers and the retailers pay a percentage of the dollar value of cards bought to the team. “Calling it a “no fuss, no stress fundraiser,” Pantsoff explains Belles are selling gift cards for 100-plus retailers. “No buying useless junk,” she says. “Just get the card for the denomination and retailer you want and we get the kick back from the supplier.” The Belles hope to see some hardcore fans at the nationals, but at the very least are looking forward to the kick-off of the local season, where some of these savage skaters will be hitting the rink with their home teams.(Story by Valerie Rossi)last_img read more
