Short-handed girls soccer Bees upended in rematch with F-M

first_imgThings are now even between the Baldwinsville and Fayetteville-Manlius girls soccer team, perhaps only to be resolved if the teams meet again with a Section III Class AA title at stake.All that had gone right late in the Bees’ Sept. 17 win over the Hornets reversed itself Monday night, when B’ville went to F-M and got run over in the first half of a 4-1 defeat.Several factors worked against B’ville. One was that it had not played a game since Sept. 28, when it beat New Hartford 2-1, avenging what was, at the time, its only defeat of the season to the Spartans late in August.Aside from the nine-day layoff, the Bees were short-handed. A minor injury had sidelined starting goalkeeper Jenna Boutilier, forcing B’ville to turn to sophomore Isabelle Cartier.Having not converted on many set pieces in their first meeting, F-M worked on it plenty in its week of practice, but as it turned out all of the Hornets’ scoring plays took place during the normal flow of play.Just 3:57 into the game, Anna Hartzheim sent a pass toward the net, where Hannah Knych’s low shot slipped past the goal line. Less than four minutes later, it was 2-0, Chloe Hodge’s pass hitting Lauren Clark in full stride and Clark ripping a low shot that Cartier could not stop.Not content with this, F-M continued its regular attacks, and in the 24th minute Hartzheim, gathering the ball at the point amid another sustained push, crushed a hard left-footed shot past a diving Cartier and inside the right post.Even when Hannah Johnson replaced Cartier in goal, F-M was relentless. In the 35th minute, it was eighth-grader Morgan Goodman finding the net, poking in the rebound of a Lauren Farrella shot that Johnson could not gather in.Behind all this was a superb effort from the Hornets’ defense, with freshman Alora Miller leading that effort as she tracked B’ville’s Simone Neivel throughout the night and rarely gave her space to produce.Neivel did score with less than two minutes left, but only after seeing her younger sister, Makaelynn Nievel, leave the game with an injury of her own.About the one benefit the Bees would get is another week to rest and have Boutilier recover so she might return for next week’s trio of contests against East Syracuse Minoa, West Genesee and Cicero-North Syracuse that closes the regular season.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: Baldwinsvillegirls soccerlast_img read more

FAVORED MOR SPIRIT WINS GRADE III, $150,000 ROBERT B. LEWIS STAKES BY A MEASURED 1 ½ LENGTHS WITH STEVENS UP; BAFFERT COLT STAMPS HIMSELF AS WEST COAST’S TOP DERBY HOPEFUL

first_imgARCADIA, Calif. (Feb. 6, 2016)–Mor Spirit took Saturday’s Grade III, $150,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes by a measured 1 ½ lengths under Gary Stevens and unequivocally stamped himself as the West Coast’s top Derby hopeful.Trained by Bob Baffert, who saddled his record sixth Lewis winner, the Pennsylvania-bred colt sat a perfect trip in behind dueling leaders I Will Score and Uncle Lino around the far turn and Stevens waited to call upon the long-striding son of Eskendereya leaving the furlong pole and won easily.“I actually got there (to the lead) quicker than I wanted to,” said Stevens. “I was loaded going into the stretch. He’s pretty special and I’m looking forward to facing more competition. He wasn’t even blowing after the race…I haven’t got close to finding the bottom of him yet and that’s a good feeling. He seems to do just enough of what’s in front of him, he likes a target. I think as he faces better horses, he’ll only get better.”Off at 3-5 in a field of six, Mor Spirit paid $3.40, $2.40 and $2.10. Owned by Michael Lund Petersen, Mor Spirit followed his win in the Grade I Los Alamitos Futurity posting his third win from five starts. With the winner’s share of $90,000, he increased his earnings to $378,400 and most importantly, picked up 10 all-important qualifying points to start in the Kentucky Derby on May 7.“He has that long stride, but in the mornings, he’s not a very good work horse. He’s sort of lazy…They were two really nice horses (Uncle Lino and I Will Score)…It makes the race even more interesting in that he’s able to collar those horses.”When asked what might be next for Mor Spirit, Baffert replied, “I don’t know. We know he’ll go on a plane to go somewhere, but right now, I’ll just go by how he’s doing. It’s just too far ahead.”In his fourth career start and first time around two turns, Uncle Lino, who was ridden by Fernando Perez, broke from the far outside and pushed I Will Score through splits of 23.49, 47.78, 1:12.34 and 1:37.10.Off at 7-1, he finished a half length in front of I Will Score. Trained by Gary Sherlock, he paid $5.20 and $2.80.“I’m very happy, he ran good,” said Sherlock. “The pace scenario dictated what we had to do what we did today…We’ll move forward off of this. He won’t be leaving here. I don’t have to go anywhere, there’s a million dollar race four hundred yards from his stall (Grade I Santa Anita Derby on April 9).Ridden by Mike Smith, I Will Score was making only his third career start and was also trying a route of ground for the first time.“He ran really well,” said Smith. “The winner’s a really good horse. He’s definitely on the Derby Trail. He’s definitely that kind of horse. So we got beat by some good horses…He’s probably better off sprinting because he’s naturally quick. In saying that, he didn’t run bad.”The second choice at 5-2, he paid $2.60 to show.The second, third and fourth (Dressed in Hermes) place finishers picked up four, two and one Kentucky Derby qualifying points.last_img read more
