Wisconsin looks to carry momentum into mid-week matchup

first_imgUsing their prolific and relentless offense, the No. 3 Wisconsin’s women’s hockey team looks to win again Wednesday evening against conference rival Minnesota State. The Badgers, who are 8-1, have been rolling over opponents all season and have won eight games in a row. The offense has been the key to the Badgers success all season, with the team averaging a lofty 4.3 goals per game. The offensive attack has also made things easy for the defense, as the their fore-checking keeps the puck in the opponent’s zone for much of every game. This has resulted in having just 14 goals scored against the Badgers all season.Junior forward and assistant captain Sara Bauer, who was named WCHA offensive player of the week, leads this offensive attack. Bauer scored six points in last weekend’s sweep of St. Cloud State, and had four points in Friday’s victory. She also scored a hat trick last season against the Mavericks in February.The line of team captain Sharon Cole, Bauer and forward Jinelle Zaugg produced five goals and five assists in the series. The line has been performing well all season, with Cole and Bauer displaying incredible on ice chemistry and Zaugg using her size to camp in front of the opponent’s goal and collect rebounds.”We just need to play the best hockey we can,” Cole said. “We’re doing a good job of working together, moving the puck and moving our feet. Our communication is getting better … if we continue do what we have been, we’ll do well.”The Badgers will look to continue this trend Wednesday against Minnesota State, a team the Badgers have already conquered. Wisconsin holds an all-time record of 24-0-1 against the Mavericks.Head coach Mark Johnson stated he was not worried about a letdown.”One of our mottos is we try to play well no matter who we’re playing,” Johnson said. “If you’re playing a series against one of the top teams in the country it might be easier to get up for. But if you’re a good team and you have good leadership in the locker room, you can get yourself for every game.”The Badgers defeated the Mavericks by a score of 4-1 in Mankato on Oct. 21. The second game was cancelled due to a burst water main near the arena. This mid-week game is a rarity for Johnson’s squad.”The tough part about tomorrow’s game will be playing mid-week,” Johnson said. “It throws the players off their routine and throws the whole team off. That will be the toughest challenge.”The Badgers must look out for the Mavericks’ two best offensive players, freshmen forwards Maggie Fisher and Felicia Nelson. Fisher has 10 points on the season with eight goals and two assists while Nelson has five goals and two assists.The Mavericks do have a relatively low scoring offensive attack, but their defense only allows a few goals to slip by. Minnesota State has allowed just 17 goals in nine games this season.As the Badgers have done so well in previous games, they will look to control the puck in the Mavericks zone and wear down the defense. The Mavericks’ goaltender Brit Kehler will likely face a high number of shots, as Wisconsin has peppered the opposing goalkeeper with a multitude of shots in most games this season. The Badgers out shot St. Cloud State 75-49 this past weekend at the Kohl Center and put 68 shots on goal in just one game against Vermont earlier in October.It is unclear who will start Wednesday’s game in goal, with Meghan Horras and Christine Dufour splitting every series so far this season. It is a possibility that freshman goaltender Jessie Vetter may get the nod for her first start of the season.This game will be the first in many away from the Kohl Center. The Badgers will play six series on the road and will not play at the Kohl Center again until Jan. 20. Despite being away from the Kohl Center, Johnson isn’t concerned.”It (the long road trip) is broken up by the holidays, so that’s OK,” Johnson said. “If you want to do anything in this league, you have to win on the road. I just look at it as another game day, but sometimes you have to get on a bus or get on a plane.”The Badgers will play at St. Mary’s University in Winona, Minn. The puck drops at 7:05 p.m.last_img read more

“Disgraceful”: Jose Mourinho launches attack at CAS for overturning Man City’s ban

first_img Source: Daily Mail When asked if City got lucky with the decision, Mourinho added: ‘Maybe they got unlucky. Maybe they don’t deserve to be punished by one single pound and they were punished in eight or nine million pounds. Maybe they were unlucky.’CAS released their verdict on Monday morning, and said: ‘Most of the alleged breaches reported by the Adjudicatory Chamber of the CFCB (UEFA’S Club Financial Control Body) were either not established or time-barred. f Jose Mourinho has launched a blistering attack on the outcome of the Manchester City court case, claiming Financial Fair Play is now dead and that football might as well throw open the ‘circus door’.The Tottenham boss hit out at the verdict delivered on Monday by the Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) to revoke a two-year ban from UEFA competitions but still fined City £9million for failing to cooperate.Mourinho was perplexed with why City were fined £9m if they were ‘not guilty’ before suggesting that if they were guilty, then their ban from UEFA’s European competitions should be upheld.“In any case it’s a disgraceful decision,” Mourinho said in his Tuesday press conference when asked about CAS’s verdict.“If Man City is not guilty of it, to be punished by some million is a disgrace, If you’re not guilty you’re not punished,” he continued.“In the other way, if you’re guilty you should be banned.“So it’s also a disgraceful decision, in any case, it’s a disaster,“If you’re not guilty, you don’t pay, I’m not saying Man City is guilty, I’m saying if you’re not guilty you don’t pay.”“You are not punished, even with a pound.“I know that money is quite easy for them but it’s just a principle.“Why are you paying eight or nine million pounds if you are not guilty?” he inquired.last_img read more

DEA Receives US$80K Donations

first_imgUnited Nations Offices on Drugs and Crimes (NODC) yesterday handed over to authorities at the Liberia Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), two brand new Toyota pickups and other equipment valued at US$80,000.This is one of the UN agencies leading the fight against illicit drugs and international crime, with the mandate to assist member states in their struggle against illicit drugs, crime and terrorism.  NODC is leading the effort jointly with our international partners, notably the United States of America State Department and their Embassy accredited near this capital with significant contribution of funds.The UNODC affirmed its commitment to enhance the law enforcement agencies of Liberia such as DEA and the Trans International Crime Unit (TCU) to be efficient, solid and reliable antinarcotics or organized crime agencies.The donation includes computer lab training equipment as well as uniforms and other crime fighting resources.The UNODC Representative to Liberia, Jesus Agvilar Cereno, in his presentation statement said, the vehicles and other equipment donated to the DEA signify a strong dedication and collective commitment to building a modern, efficient internal security and criminal investigation system.The equipment and the vehicles are to further empower the DEA to cope with challenges of transnational crime, organized crime, drugs trafficking that are taking advantage of the country’s vulnerabilities, which can undermine the country’s stability and development efforts.“With capable human resources and adequate equipment DEA is prepared to address the challenges of organized crime and drug trafficking in the Liberian society, in collaboration with other societies in the region in matters related to transnational crime,” Mr. Cereno stated.According to him, transnational organized crime is a global threat, “since organized crimes take roots to destabilize countries and whole regions.”However, he said, the threat that transnational` organized crime, notable drug trafficking in the country and the region can be mitigate by making additional efforts towards strengthening law enforcement agencies.Meanwhile, UNODC has reiterated its commitment to continue the enhancing and modernization of law enforcement agencies in the country.In his response, DEA Director, Anthony K. Souh, expressed gratitude on behalf of the staff and officers of the agency for the donations.“With open hands and hearts, we are glad to receive these materials because they are coming at a time when we need them the most,” Director Souh declared.Earlier, Mr. Cereno presented keys of the vehicles to the Assistant Justice Minister for Administration, Wheatonia Dixon Barnes, who in turned presented them to the DEA Director. She however warned that the items and vehicles presented should be used for their intended purposes.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img
