Syracuse beats Canisius, 13-11, in game delayed 1 month

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ After a full month, No. 4 Syracuse’s game against Canisius (11-6, 8-0 Metro Atlantic), which had been suspended since April 3, finally resumed Tuesday at Canisius. The Orange (17-5, 5-2 Atlantic Coast) won, 13-11. Kelly Cross scored two of SU’s three goals on the day to pull away from the Golden Griffins.The game had been tied at 10 with 6:05 remaining before snow on the field required officials to call the game. Just before the game was postponed due to weather, the Golden Griffins scored three straight goals to tie up the Orange.SU had originally rescheduled its game against Canisius April 5 to April 3 because SU had more competition dates than the NCAA allows, head coach Gary Gait said. That meant Syracuse hosted Duke at noon, won 14-12 and then boarded a bus to Buffalo to take on Canisius just a few hours later.After play resumed Tuesday, Cross took advantage of a free position opportunity and scored the first goal of the day to give the Orange a 11-10 lead. Canisius answered with a goal to tie the game back up at 11 with 2:57 remaining.But Kayla Treanor won the ensuing draw and threw a quick pass ahead to Halle Majorana, who netted a goal six seconds later. Cross netted the game’s final goal with 1:54 remaining to give SU a two-goal cushion and, eventually, the win.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDespite not scoring Tuesday, SU sophomore attack Riley Donahue had two goals and two assists before the stoppage in play.In April, Canisius jumped out to a 1-0 lead just two minutes into the first half. The two teams seemed evenly matched and traded goals until the Orange outscored the Griffins in the last 17:53 of the half to grab a 7-5 lead going into halftime.Syracuse scored a few quick goals to begin the second half and looked poised to finish the game strong, but SU collapsed in the final 6:57 before the game was called. In a short 1:25, Canisius exploded for three quick goals to tie the game at 10-10. Finally on Tuesday, SU recovered from its near-collapse to grab the win.

Paul ‘Triple H’ Levesque on ‘holding my breath’ through death-defying spot at the end of NXT TakeOver

first_img“You know they are coming,” Levesque said. “You know what’s happening and especially in big ones like that because that is stuff I absolutely know and I absolutely sign off on it. There’s certain things where I believe they can do safely and I believe the risk-to-reward ratio is reasonable.”But there are also things that were brought up tonight where I was like, ‘Absolutely not’ (laughs). ‘No, you’re not doing that guys. As much as I love you guys and want you to tear it up like you were going to tear it up with all the other stuff, you don’t need that.'”But that’s when you hold your breath and you just wait for the landing and you’re just waiting for the referee to tell you that everybody is OK.” THIS IS WAR. #NXTTakeOver #WarGames @AdamColePro @NXTCiampa pic.twitter.com/huX7GjfgET— WWE NXT (@WWENXT) November 24, 2019Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a yearThe ending was one of the most dangerous spots in WWE in some time. Two wrestlers were at the top of a cage about 15 to 20 feet in the air, and all you can hope for as a spectator is that, whatever happens, both men will be OK. Ciampa and Cole ended up being OK.The moment wasn’t lost on Paul “Triple H” Levesque, the founder and senior producer of NXT and WWE’s executive vice president of talent, live events and creative, as he watched his top acts putting it all on the line.”Those are the moments where I’m just holding my breath,” Levesque told Sporting News during a media session following the event. “The truth is in this business, I’ve seen more people get injured, including myself, on dumb little things. The stuff, the big, giant spectacle spots that you really put so much care and thought into — yes, they are extremely dangerous, yes, they are extremely impactful.”It’s funny, (but) more often than not, it’s the guy running across the ring and just turns his ankle and he’s out six months.” Even though Ciampa and Cole safely executed the maneuver, some will question why such a move would be needed in an already physical affair among eight participants inside two steel cages with tables at their disposal.  Levesque admits he approved the ending, but that doesn’t mean he was going to allow his talent to do everything under the sun.  ROSEMONT, Ill. — The main event of Saturday’s WWE NXT TakeOver: WarGames show at Allstate Arena featured Team Ciampa (Tommaso Ciampa, Keith Lee, Donovan Dijakovic and Kevin Owens) defeating The Undisputed Era (NXT heavyweight champion Adam Cole, North American champ Roderick Strong and tag team champions Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly). The end of the match had Ciampa and Cole at the top corner of the first cage fighting for position. Ciampa, the former NXT champion, gained the advantage and executed the Air Raid with him and Cole crashing through a table. Ciampa then obtained the pinfall victory.last_img read more
