EPL: Arteta conflicted as Arsenal eye benefit from Man City ban

first_img The 20-year-old missed his big chance to make an impact when he hit the bar from Nicolas Pepe’s cut-back in an explosive start to the second period from Arsenal. Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang showed his young apprentice how to pounce in front of goal as he rose highest to power home Pepe’s floated cross on 54 minutes. One of the revelations of Arteta’s early days in charge has been Bukayo Saka’s performances as a makeshift left-back. No Arsenal player has created more goals than the 18-year-old this season and Saka nutmegged Valentino Lazaro before teeing up Pepe to fire home the hosts’ second from close range. “He takes responsibility, he takes risks in the final third. He is a player who wants to make an impact, he has courage,” said Arteta. Newcastle have scored just 24 goals in 26 league games this season and their lack of a goal threat was obvious as they chased the game in the final half hour. But Steve Bruce was most disappointed with their defending as they conceded twice more in the closing stages. “The goals were gave away were not like us, it was too easy,” said Bruce. “We did not start the half like we should’ve done. We’ve been sloppy and given away awful goals.” Read Also: Allardyce can see Guardiola quitting Man City for Juventus Lacazette replaced Nketiah five minutes from time and made a huge impact to give his confidence a much-needed boost. Firstly, the Frenchman crossed for Mesut Ozil, whose tame shot squirmed through Martin Dubravka’s grasp. Luck then shone on Lacazette to end a nine-game goal drought as his right-footed shot flicked off his left foot and flew into the top corner in the fifth minute of stoppage time. FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta said he still only wants the best for former employers Manchester City, even though a European ban for the English champions could give the Gunners a route into next season’s Champions League. A 4-0 win over Newcastle on Sunday lifted Arsenal up to 10th in the Premier League, but just six points adrift of Tottenham in fifth. Nicolas Pepe (centre) celebrates Arsenal’s second goal in a 4-0 win over Newcastle City’s two-season ban handed down by UEFA on Friday means fifth will be enough to secure a Champions League place unless the champions succeed in overturning that sanction at the Court of Arbitration for Sport. Arteta, who left City to take his first senior managerial role at the Emirates in December, could now be the beneficiary of his former club’s punishment. “It’s very difficult. I want the best for Manchester City, the best for Pep (Guardiola) and the players. The only thing I want for them is positive and good things,” said the Spaniard. “I just want to do for Arsenal the best I can.” Victory was just the second in eight league games since Arteta took charge and there was plenty of encouragement for the 37-year-old in Arsenal’s second half performance after an all too familiar subdued first 45 minutes. “We talked before the game that we wanted to turn draws into wins,” added Arteta after a run of six draws in eight games. “The first half it was a little bit slow, but the way they play with low block, you can get frustrated. We improved much more in the second half.” – Explosive Arsenal – Arteta handed Eddie Nketiah his first Premier League start up front at the expense of the out-of-form Alexandre Lacazette.

Girls soccer Bears earn 3-1 win over Lakers

first_imgEver since they both got together again in the Onondaga High School League Liberty division, the Chittenango and Cazenovia girls soccer teams have enjoyed a lively rivalry, with neither side dominating.In the case of the 2019 regular season, the neighborhood bragging rights would go to the Bears, who turned back the Lakers 3-1 last Monday night to improve its overall record to 9-3.Chittenango had, of course, started 7-0 before a trio of defeats to Westhill, Marcellus (in overtime) and Cicero-North Syracuse late in September. Tags: CazenoviaChittenangogirls soccer Cazenovia did not have much time to recuperate, going to Solvay two nights later and using a consistent attack to pressure the Bearcats and ultimately get what was needed to prevail 2-0.As the Lakers’ defense fully contained Solvay, the Lakers were patient on the other end of the field, overcoming 13 saves from Bearcats goalie Nancy Gonzales and Haley Muehl by having Lili Gavitt and Caitlin Smithers pick up goals.On Friday afternoon, the Lakers had its last home game of the regular season against Oneida, and claimed its second consecutive victory with a productive attack that took the Indians apart in a 7-3 victory.All game long, Gavitt proved impossible to contain, notching the team’s first, third and sixth goals while assisting on two others to augment her hat trick.Lily Clonan and Katie Rajkowski both had one goal and one assist, with Smithers and Julia Reff also converting. Megan Hughes picked up an assist as Cazenovia took 34 shots to Oneida’s eight.Chittenango looked for three wins in a row  last Wednesday at Phoenix, and it wasn’t easy, the Firebirds showing its 6-4-1 record was far from a fluke as it pushed the game to the wire before the Bears won 2-1.In each of Chittenango’s two scoring lays, Sarah Martin converted, with feeds from Emily Moon. Phoenix did convert once, but Kelly’s seven saves helped her side hang on.More opportunities to win for the Bears would arrive in the last week of the regular season as it made up a postponed Oct. 3 match with Mexico in between games against Solvay and General Brown.Cazenovia would venture to Hannibal Friday before finding out Sunday, along with Chittenango, where it would get seeded for the Section III Class B playoffs.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story center_img Far more steady, Cazenovia carried a 9-3-1 record into its trip into Bear Country, but would find on this night that it had no answer for one Chittenango striker in particular.Three different times, Madison Wagner would convert, her hat trick including a pair of unassisted goals and one assisted by Savannah Penoyer, which negated 11 saves by Cazenovia goalkeeper Tessa Hansknecht.Throughout the game, the Lakers would test the Bears’ defense, and while it did allow a goal, many more chances were turned back, Cassidy Kelly also recording 11 saves.last_img read more

Syracuse men’s soccer opponent preview: What to know about North Carolina

first_imgUnseeded Florida Gulf Coast gave North Carolina a fit in an NCAA tournament second-round matchup last week, but the Tar Heels prevailed in double overtime, 3-2. The win earned UNC a date with Syracuse, which coasted past Dartmouth, 3-0, behind Sergio Camargo’s two goals and assist. The two Atlantic Coast Conference foes meet for the fourth time in two years Sunday at 2 p.m. at Onondaga Community College’s Murphy Field, instead of at SU Soccer Stadium because of field conditions.The winner of No. 8 seed Syracuse (12-3-4, 3-2-3 ACC) and No. 9 seed North Carolina (12-3-3, 5-1-2) will host an Elite Eight tilt against either Creighton or Providence, which stunned No. 1 seed Maryland.Here’s what you need to know ahead of the matchup, SU’s third straight Sweet 16 appearance.All-time series: North Carolina leads, 2-0-2 (Syracuse advanced past UNC on penalty kicks in last year’s ACC tournament, a game recorded as a tie.)Last time they met: A Friday night battle between then-No. 3 Syracuse and No. 4 UNC, two of the country’s top offenses, ended in a scoreless tie. Syracuse owned a 5-2 advantage in shots on goal and outshot UNC, 13-6, but the closest SU came to a score was a Chris Nanco shot off the crossbar.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThe North Carolina report: The Tar Heels are as deep as SU. Six players on each team have netted at least three goals. Where UNC separates itself is offensively: seven times this year the Tar Heels have scored three or more goals, including twice they have scored five or more (SU has not scored more than four in a game).Redshirt senior forward Tucker Hume netted four goals through UNC’s first eight games. The 6-foot-5, 203-pound Division II transfer has size, skill and experience that make him dangerous. His 11-goal total last year ranked second in the conference, and his seven goals this year places second on the team. He’s flanked by Zach Wright, who’s posted five scores and seven assists, and Nils Bruening, a sophomore with a team-leading eight goals.How Syracuse beats North Carolina: While SU’s scoring offense places only 33rd in the country, its defense is dominant. A fourth-ranked goals-against average (0.55) and a shutout percentage (0.58) that ranks tied for fourth nationwide have kept Syracuse just two wins away from a trip to Houston for the College Cup. The Orange could rely on its defense for 110 minutes then take its chances in penalty kicks.The Orange could also try to set up Chris Nanco. When the senior forward scores, SU is 17-0 over the last four years. Sergio Camargo has come on of late — the senior transfer has four goals in SU’s last seven games after not having scored in his first nine games.Stat to know: 11 — The Tar Heels place in the nation’s top 12 in 11 statistical categories, including goals-against average (third), assists per game (second) and shutout percentage (third).Player to watch: Tucker Hume, forward, No. 36Hume scored in both SU-UNC matchups last year. The first goal came off a ball passed around the box that found Hume. On the second, he tied last year’s ACC quarterfinal bout, sending it to overtime before SU advanced on penalty kicks. A Rollins College (Florida) transfer, Hume could give SU’s back line difficulties with an imposing frame and knack for scoring.
