Kyle Harper also notched an assist for Ocean City.Joey Cino and Luca Bongiovanni scored for Mainland.Ocean City goalkeeper Kyle Plenn had four saves.The Red Raiders opened up the scoring early in the game with less than two minutes ticked off the clock, when Levy-Smith found the back of the net thanks to some fancy footwork.Unfortunately for the Red Raiders, they found themselves knotted at 1-1 when the Mustangs answered right back within a minute.Ocean City’s Ori Levy-Smith (12), the game’s leading scorer, crosses the ball to a teammate.The next 20 minutes was a back-and-forth effort between the two teams – both battling to gain an advantage on the scoreboard.Ultimately, the Red Raiders would be the next to score, as Steiger tipped in a pass from Levy-Smith to give Ocean City a 2-1 advantage at halftime.As the second half got underway, it was much of the same as the first half – both teams vying for control.  The Red Raiders dominated possession, keeping the ball in their offensive end for the majority of the second half.With under 10 minutes to play, Lindsay would net what was ultimately the game winner, putting Ocean City ahead 3-1.Mainland would continue to fight for a chance to get back in the game, scoring off a free kick when Ocean City was given a card.Red Raider John Lindsay dribbles through the Mainland defendersWith three minutes left to play, the Mustangs were battling back from a one-goal deficit, but Ocean City was not about to let the lead slip away. The defense stepped up and the team was able to eke out a victory.Ocean City Head Coach Aaron Bogushefsky said the Red Raiders did enough to get the job done.“I am happy with the result, but there is plenty of room for improvement,” Bogushefsky said after the game.As the season progresses, Bogushefsky said the ultimate goal is to win the last game of the season so this year, with its shortened preseason and change of schedule, the Red Raiders are working through all of those potential issues within a tighter timetable.“We have the ability. We just need to be more disciplined to be consistently great. Consistency is the key to being successful,” he said.Ocean City’s defense readies itself for Mainland’s free kick.last_img read more

Florida High School Student Gets into All Eight Ivy League Schools

first_imgA North Florida high school student has quite a decision to make on his college education.Craig McFarland,a student at Stanton College Preparatory School in Jacksonville, recently learned that he has been accepted to all eight Ivy League schools.The teen, who has a 4.98 grade point average and and has never gotten a “B” on his high school report card, is unsure which university he will ultimately attend.“With coronavirus, I can’t do that, so the only metric that I have is based on experiences of current students and their virtual campus tours,” McFarland says.CONGRATULATIONS! Craig McFarland, senior at Stanton College Preparatory School, is the newest member of a very exclusive club: The “I Was Accepted into Every Ivy League University In The Country Club.” #TeamDuval #WeHaveThatFull Story: https://t.co/ep0gwfw1g8— DCPS (@DuvalSchools) April 21, 2020 He heard from Yale first, and then received acceptance letters from Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, University of Pennsylvania, Brown, Dartmouth, and Cornell.“With each school, I was more and more in shock,” adds McFarland, who says he plans to study medicine or law.According to Craig’s mother, Donabel Santiago, he has always demonstrated strong initiative.The single mom explains, “I’m very proud of him. I have three kids and I told them I don’t accept a ‘B’ as a grade because I know that they can bring me A’s.”last_img read more


Badgers beat DePaul, snowy conditions to move on to second round

first_imgPlaying in what turned out to be a wintery vortex at the McClimon Soccer Complex Saturday night, fourth-seeded Wisconsin women’s soccer topped the previously undefeated DePaul Blue Demons in a memorable 2-0 match to advance to the second round of the NCAA tournament.With players on both sides slipping left and right, forwards found open space more often than usual, leading to a combined 14 shots in the first half. Leading the charge early for DePaul in the first half was sophomore forward Abby Reed, who had three breakaway shots on-target in the first 45 minutes.Despite Reed beating the Badgers (19-2-2) back line and earning one-on-one opportunities on those occasions, Wisconsin’s senior goalkeeper Genevieve Richard recorded a series of miraculous saves to keep the Badgers in it.Richard noted the importance of making a statement with an early lead, and a big part of that is keeping the shutout intact to support the offense.“I think it helps the team a lot to keep a clean sheet, and it gives us the opportunity to score first and that’s always good,” Richard said. “It just leads to a good momentum, so I’m just glad I did my job.”While DePaul (16-1-4) had trouble finishing their chances in the opening minutes, the Badgers certainly did not. Just 12 minutes into the game, junior midfielder Kinley McNicoll found an open lane into the box, crossing it through the defense to senior forward Cara Walls. Walls then promptly redirected the pass with a header that bounced into the left corner of the goal for the 1-0 lead.The assist was the team-leading 27th point scored by McNicoll, while the goal was number 12 for Walls, also tops on the Badgers.A little while later in the 20th minute, the Badgers got some insurance, upping their lead to 2-0 after redshirt senior forward Kodee Williams found Walls over the middle for a sliding goal through the increasingly snowy field.Looking back at her early goals and the conditions on the field, Walls said the snow really only hindered her ability to fire shots.“I honestly thought the conditions weren’t as bad,” Walls said. “I felt that I was able to pass the ball fine and I don’t think the conditions played as big of a role in the chances of opportunities we created.”For a team that averaged less than one goal allowed per game all season, the Blue Demons found themselves in an early hole, but with plenty of time left to respond. Perhaps due to the snowy field, the Badgers defense appeared more vulnerable than usual, giving up a few costly turnovers in the first half. On one occasion in the closing minutes of the first half, an errant pass back over the middle intended for Richard was intercepted by Reed, who had an open look but barely missed the net wide right.The near miss for Reed epitomized the frustrating night for DePaul’s offense, which finished the night with five shots on-target compared to the Wisconsin’s seven.After a fast-paced first half, the second half showcased far fewer scoring opportunities as the field got increasingly slick and players lost their footing. While the refs appeared to be relatively lenient with calling fouls, there were still plenty to go around, with Wisconsin committing 14 of the 20 total.The big difference maker was Wisconsin’s back line finding some rhythm after a spotty first half. After giving the defense fits in the opening segment, Reed had no on target attempts in the final 45 minutes and was essentially taken out of the game by the Badgers defense, led by senior Alexandra Heller and junior Brianna Stelzer.The Badgers offense successfully maintained control of the ball in the attacking third for the majority of the second half, but couldn’t capitalize. Looking for a dagger in the 84th minute, a sneaky pass to McNicoll in the box looked promising, but DePaul junior goalkeeper Alejandria Godinez stole the ball away before a finishing touch could be made.Sensing the fate of their season in the balance, DePaul began to play desperately in the closing moments. The Blue Demon offense tried several shots from long range, likely hoping for Richard to succumb to the slick field and miss a save. The efforts, however, were too little too late, as the final 2-0 score line punched the Badgers’ ticket to Tallahassee for the second round.After spending two hours in ice and snow, head coach Paula Wilkins said the idea of heading down south for the second round was more than welcoming for her team. That being said, Wilkins emphasized the trip will be business as usual.“I think the players are excited to be in a little bit warmer climate,” Wilkins said. “But, it’s definitely not going to be a vacation for us. They are going to be focused and they have some goals in mind. It will be very exciting.”The Badgers will be on the pitch next against UCF Nov. 21 at the Florida State campus, starting at 3:30 p.m. CT.last_img read more

He is improving and for the moment he is doing well in that position.”If you are 20 years old you always want to play, but we will see if he has any muscle problem. For the moment Declan must continue playing.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more
