Senior attackman Katie Chase (11) handles the ball during a game against Northwestern March 9 at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 11-10.Courtesy of OSU AthleticsFrom the first drop of the ball, Katie Chase had one thing on her mind: scoring goals.The senior attackman for the Ohio State women’s lacrosse team turned in a career-high seven goals on her way to eight points as the No. 18 Buckeyes topped Oregon, 13-9, Wednesday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.High winds wreaked havoc on play throughout the entirety of the game, leading OSU coach Alexis Venechanos to attribute much of the team’s success against the Ducks (4-4, 1-0) to Chase’s work on and off the ball.Venechanos described Chase as a “special player” that had a “really strong game.”“She took over parts of that game in the draw control,” Venechanos said after the game. “Her teammates looked for her and she shot phenomenally.”The Buckeyes (7-4, 1-1) got off to a quick start, gaining possession of the ball off the game’s first draw. Chase set the pace for the match early by scoring the game’s first goal 23 seconds into the game.“We always want to score first,” Venechanos said. “That was important to start like that.”Chase said setting the tone early is a goal OSU has every game, and she felt they were able to do that with a quick goal from the start.“It gets the beat up for our attack and gets us in the flow of things,” Chase said after the win.The momentum from Chase’s quick strike didn’t continue, however, as the Ducks responded with two goals in just less than five minutes to take a 2-1 lead.But OSU, lead by Chase — who completed a hat trick before the half ended — struck back to take a 4-2 lead before Oregon evened the count with 11:06 left in the first half.OSU senior attackman Cara Facchina tallied her third goal of the season at the 2:29 mark in the first, though, to give the Buckeyes a one-goal advantage heading into the break.“They would answer, then we would answer,” junior goalie Tori DeScenza said on the first half. “But we really (hunkered) down knowing that they were going to swing the ball pretty fast.”Along with hard work on the offense, the Buckeyes gained their success with the defensive mentality around the field forcing numerous turnovers from Oregon’s strong attack.“We haven’t seen an attack like them,” Venechanos said. “We really had trouble with it.”The Ducks’ strong attack tested the OSU defense, but the Buckeyes maintained composure and were able to gain more possessions to help secure the victory.Part of that defense was DeScenza, who fought hard in the net all throughout the game and ended the game with 10 saves.The game was the first ever between the two programs.DeScenza credits Oregon with its good stick skills but was proud of how hard the defense worked to combat them.“It was a hard battle all the way to the final whistle,” DeScenza said.The Buckeyes head back to work to prepare for a match against William and Mary set for noon Saturday at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

Cristiano Ronaldo’s former Manchester United teammate Patrice Evra has advised the superstar to go ahead with the move to Juventus as it will allow him to continue to win silverwareThe five-time Ballon d’Or winner is looking increasingly likely to end his nine-year spell at Real Madrid this summer following a falling out with club president Florentino Perez.A move to Serie A champions Juventus is on the cards with a reported bid of €100m set to be the fee paid for Ronaldo’s services.Evra, who also played for Juventus himself, gave his former teammate his full endorsement of the possible transfer to Turin in a live Instagram video.“Everyone asks me, ‘Pat, what do you think?’ ” he said, as stated on Metro.Maguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“I haven’t spoken to Cristiano about this, but my advice is, if he wants to play to 2050, he has to go to Juve. There is no other team he must join. It’s simple.“I thank Juve, because if after Manchester I continued to win and to run, it was thanks to Juve. You should never spit on the plate that fed you, so Juve will always be in my heart.”Following a short interpretation of the Juventus song, Evra added: “So Cristiano, I tell you this: make the right choice.“You know how much the Italians love you, but it’s a sacrifice. If you go to Juve, it’s to work and to work HARD. This lot, ha, don’t know what a vacation is.“But that’s the choice. Either you want to continue playing to 2050 or just carry on for a bit. I can tell you this. If you go to Juve, you’ll be at the next World Cup not as a mascot, but as a protagonist. A PROTAGONIST!”

It’s disappointing, now we no longer have our destiny in our hands.“In the coming days, we will have to analyse it even if it is not easy to find the right words.”
Cardiff City manager Neil Warnock says they were unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty in their goalless draw with Huddersfield Town on Saturday.Despite Warnock’s claims, Cardiff City should count them lucky after referee Lee Mason overturned a penalty he awarded to Huddersfield Town in the 76th minute.Cardiff felt they were denied clear penalty calls when Philip Billing’s header hit Erik Durm’s arm and when Hoilett was brought down by Hadergjonaj.“We knew we’d be struggling a little bit today,” Warnock told Sky Sports.“We had one or two players who shouldn’t have been playing. Callum Paterson and Victor Camarasa weren’t really fit but I wanted to play them.Cowley explains why he changed his mind about Huddersfield Manuel R. Medina – September 9, 2019 Last week Danny Cowley rejected the chance to coach Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, but today he accepted saying it was a good opportunity.“I thought we had the opportunities but we didn’t get the rub of the green although thankfully the linesman was alert to overturn the penalty. We thought ours was a certain penalty for a foul on [Junior] Hoilett.“The lad doesn’t see him coming, he gets to the ball first, and he takes the man.“I don’t understand why they can’t be given but I suppose next season with VAR, we’ve got a chance.”
