Syracuse falls to .500 with 2-0 loss to Auburn

first_img Facebook Twitter Google+ Kailey Brenner had the ball at her feet in the box with just under 13 minutes to play. She took one touch to her left, and that was all the Auburn defense would allow her before stepping in front, clearing the danger. After losing the ball, Brenner fell to the turf for a couple moments, not in pain but simply exhausted. Syracuse (2-2) made just three substitutions in a 2-0 loss to Auburn on Thursday night. The Tigers made 18. With nine injured players on the roster, Nicky Adams had no other options to alleviate the toll the southern humidity was taking on her players. Early on, both defenses stood tall. Sophomore Meghan Root had the Orange’s best chance of the first half 19 minutes in, but failed to get much power behind the shot as it floated harmlessly into Auburn keeper Kate Hart’s arms. As Auburn continued to cycle fresh legs, Syracuse began to tire and lose its shape and composure. Junior keeper Lysianne Proulx kept SU in the game with two acrobatic saves – one with her face, the other with a leaping punch. AdvertisementThis is placeholder textIn the second half, the Tigers continued to pressure the Orange before finally breaking through with a goal in the 51st minute. Sixteen minutes later, third-team All-American Bri Folds snuck a shot between Proulx’s fist and the crossbar to give Auburn a commanding 2-0 lead. The Orange mustered just one shot on net in the second half and two for the entire match. Proulx made a career-high 10 saves in the loss, while junior Georgia Allen tallied one shot on goal in her return from U-21 English international play a week ago.

O’Rourke supports refinancing, lowering interest rates on student loans

first_imgMASON CITY — Democratic presidential candidate Beto O’Rourke has been in Iowa the last few days holding town hall meetings, including late Wednesday morning in Mason City.O’Rourke is calling for letting Americans refinance their student loans “at much lower rates.” “We have a 10 percent default rate. Let’s get that default rate down to zero by making sure that your payments are affordable,” O’Rourke says. “Something is better than nothing and right now we are getting nothing from far too many of those who took out those loans.”O’Rourke, a former Texas congressman, supported President Obama’s “College Promise” proposal that would have made community college tuition free for students who kept their grades up and made steady progress toward completing their two-year degree. He supports erasing student loan debt for college graduates who work in certain occupations. “If you’re willing to work at the VA in one of those unfilled positions, let’s wipe clean in total the debt that you owe so that you can focus on taking care of those who stood up for us,” O’Rourke said. “If you’re willing to teach or become a public school educator in an underserved community, come back to your hometown, perhaps – a decision you could not afford if you had to pay back all those student loan debts, let’s wipe those debts clean.”He emphasized not only the importance of training beyond high school, but of universal preschool. “Starting that education not at four or five, but at three or four, we move the starting line back so everybody has an even chance at success in their lives,” O’Rourke says.O’Rourke stopped in Charles City on Tuesday where he was the guest of Iowa House Minority Leader Todd Prichard. He also made an appearance at Fat Hill Brewing Company this morning.last_img read more
