Jordan Evans and Nick Mariano orchestrate offense in No. 6 Syracuse’s 19-6, season-opening win over Siena

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ The question mark surrounding Syracuse’s offense loomed heading into its season opener. The Orange had lost top points scorer and “quarterback” Dylan Donahue to graduation. Before the season, SU head coach John Desko said senior Jordan Evans, the most experienced attack and wearer of No. 22, needed to step up.On Saturday, Evans did just that, helping facilitate the offense like Desko asked. And he was not alone. Senior Nick Mariano mirrored Evans’ production as the duo filled the quarterback gap to combine for six goals and nine assists. The pair orchestrated No. 6 Syracuse’s (1-0) fourth consecutive season-opening win against Siena (0-1), 19-6.“(Evans and Mariano) played well and finished well,” Desko said. “They played well together because of how they understand the offense.”On three separate occasions, Evans and Mariano were a part of putting together three or more consecutive Syracuse scores. The duo assisted each other twice during a five-point streak mid-game that pushed SU’s lead to double-digits and the offense clicked in the team’s first game without Donahue since 2013.In the third quarter, Siena’s goalie Aaron Lewis picked up the ball off the ground and darted to his left. Evans ran at Lewis, who tried turning and firing the ball across the field to his teammate. When he began to pass, Evans knocked his stick deflected the ball down.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textQuickly, he scooped up the ball and found Mariano already cutting toward the empty net. Lewis ran back and dove block the shot. It was too late. Mariano registered his third goal.On 12 different scoring plays for SU, Evans or Mariano had assisted or scored. Evans’ career-high eight total points was quickly followed with Mariano’s career-high of seven. For Mariano’s six shots on goal, Evans was right behind with five. The two seemed to riff off each other’s momentum as SU quickly pulled away after a slow start in the first frame.“End of the first quarter, Nick and I looked at each other,” Evans said, “and I told him this is the best I’ve played with a duo since I’ve been (at Syracuse).”While Mariano or Evans had possession, the rest of the team ran off-ball cuts toward the net. Keeping their heads up and quickly making decisions led to multiple opportunities. Like one particular goal from Brendan Bomberry to put SU up 10 with 6:16 to go in the third quarter.Mariano saw Bomberry cutting right around the cage and instinctively pulled the defenseman toward him. Mariano lofted a pass high that Bomberry reached to grab. The junior transfer wound up and made it 13-3.“It was all with our guys off ball,” Mariano said. “Our offense is facilitated through everyone; it doesn’t matter who is gonna get the points.”There doesn’t need to be a singular quarterback, Desko said, that the offense needs to run through. Instead, it seems Syracuse has two signal-callers working in tandem.And Mariano and Evans are entering just their second year together as teammates. If Saturday’s performance is any indication, the pair might continue SU’s offensive success without a hiccup.“It’s good to have someone else who really knows the game inside-out,” Evans said, “and knows where to be at the right time.”Evans is not Donahue. Neither is Mariano. But that did not matter in Syracuse’s season opener. Comments Published on February 11, 2017 at 8:36 pm Contact Charlie: csdistur@syr.edu | @charliedisturcolast_img read more

Lightning ERTE has been supported

first_imgUntil this outcome, it was hoped to reach an understanding between the parties as has happened in other entities and by the economic situation of this one in particular. “With 19 million surplus and € 21M entered by the transfers, you have to have two eggs and go out to secure the wages of your employees. I’m not talking about Barça or Atlético. I’m talking about Lightning, that’s why I give those numbers, “coach Paco Jémez stated bluntly a few days ago in ‘Estudio Estadio’.Beyond the first team, ERTE also It has affected the Rayo Femenino, the Foundation, the quarry … And the workers who are on a daily basis of the club, although with particularities. In some cases it is a reduction in working hours and, therefore, salary; while in others, ERTE is total: they would only collect 70% of the contribution base from the State. A month after Rayo acknowledged his intention to apply an ERTE, it has become effective. It has already been admitted, as AS has learned, and so the workers have been notified since Friday, May 1. The Temporary Employment Regulation File will also affect the coach, Paco Jémez, and the staff of the first team, who will experience a 70% reduction in their emoluments since the alarm state was decreed (14-M). Thus, will be retroactive, since players and coaching staff normally received their salary for the month of March.This news has been a jug of cold water for all redhead employees. And is that captains have met with the club and put forward various proposals for weeks to try to avoid this scenario and try to ensure that the most vulnerable workers (those who need their salary to make ends meet) do not lose a single euro in the process. Agreement has not been possible and the general feeling is one of deep disappointment.last_img read more
