Dakota Derrer plays role of shot blocker for Syracuse

first_imgDakota Derrer doesn’t claim to be one of Syracuse’s most skilled players, so she’s had to find a niche to get playing time. She found that spot in being an aggressive, shot blocking defender. Derrer currently leads Syracuse with 39 blocked shots, 18 more than the next highest player, Jessica Sibley.“I grew up with two brothers,” Derrer said, “and we always played hockey downstairs and they always shot the pucks at me, so it didn’t really bother me.”Derrer’s aggressive defensive style and grinding play have anchored the Syracuse (4-7-3, 3-2-1 College Hockey America) defense. The defender’s shot blocking has helped the Orange roll into a home-and-home weekend against the Rochester Institute of Technology (3-15, 1-5 CHA) with the CHA’s best defense and least goals allowed per game.“Remember those hats that came out a few years ago that said, ‘No fear?’ Literally,” SU head coach Paul Flanagan said. “A lot of it is just not having that fear of frozen, vulcanized rubber coming at you at varying speeds.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textDerrer prides herself on blocking shots and winning the puck in the corner. Playing fearlessly fuels Derrer’s edge to being a true grinder, but she also possesses fundamentals.Flanagan said she knows the right spots to drop and block shots so the puck hits her in the body and arms, not the face and neck. Derrer also takes pride in going into “dirty areas” and doing what other players might be more reluctant to do. She views it is a necessity.“I got a lot more playing time when I was being a grinder because I didn’t really do anything else so that’s how I made myself a player so I could get playing time,” Derrer said.But the physical, aggressive defense does not come without a cost. After a 3-0 Friday night victory over then-No. 7 North Dakota, a game where the Orange blocked 28 shots and Derrer blocked five, she was almost unable to play the next day because of the physical toll it took, Flanagan said.And when it comes to penalty minutes, Derrer leads the team with 15 penalties for 30 minutes.But Derrer’s play has helped SU’s blue line be one of the best in the conference. It gives up the fewest goals per game at 1.86 and boasts a penalty kill of 85.5 percent. By doing things other players might not want to do, Derrer has been able to lift herself and team.“When I block a shot when the bench gets crazy,” Derrer said, “they get loud, it boosts me up, it gives the team more will to go.” Comments Published on November 30, 2016 at 11:31 pm Contact Andrew: [email protected] | @A_E_Graham Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Softball: Badgers batter Valparaiso, score 21 runs in double-header sweep

first_imgIn an otherwise foggy day at the Goodman Diamond Wednesday afternoon, the Badgers had clear vision in the batter box, combining for 21 runs in a two game mercy-rule sweep of Valparaiso.The first game between the Badgers (16-20, 1-7 Big Ten) and Valparaiso (8-25, 2-6 Horizon) looked promising at the start for the Crusaders, as the visitors took a 2-0 lead following a two-run homerun by infielder Mollie Lindeman in the top of the second inning. In the final three frames, Wisconsin pitcher Mariah Watts took command on the mound, shutting Valpo out for the remainder of the game.The Badgers’ bats came alive in the bottom of the third inning as second baseman Megan Tancill started a three-run frame off with a single, eventually scoring with a single by outfielder Maria Van Abel to tie the game at two apiece. A subsequent defensive error by the Crusaders and RBI double by catcher Chloe Miller put the Badgers up 3-2, a lead they would not relinquish for the remainder of the game.After failing to score and stranding three runners on base in the top of the fourth inning, Wisconsin put the dagger in any chance of a Valpo comeback with a 7-run inning in the bottom of the frame. Leading the charge for Wisconsin was a bases-clearing triple by Tancill to extend the lead to 6-2, followed by designated hitter Marissa Mersch’s two-RBI double, making it 8-2.Wisconsin added on two more runs to end the frame at 10-2, a lead they held on to in the five inning mercy rule win. Watts picked up her team-leading seventh win of the season.After an inconsistent offensive stretch for the Badgers in several March road trips, head coach Yvette Healy believes a return to the Goodman Diamond was exactly what her team needed to get back on track.“It’s been fun to be at home. I think since we’ve been here, we’ve been swinging the bats really well, running bases well, and it’s been a team effort, not just one kid,” Healy said. “We’re excited to see the ball fly and see people run bases, and anytime you can put up runs, especially in front of your home fans, it’s fun.”Pitcher Taylor-Paige Stewart took the mound for the Badgers as they aimed to take home the doubleheader sweep. Stewart confidently blazed through Valpo’s first three hitters for a perfect opening inning with consecutive strikeouts.The Crusaders’ starting pitcher Taylor Weissenhofer found herself in an early hole after a combination of command issues with pitch placement and defensive miscues in the field. Following a walk to first-baseman Stefanni LaJeunesse with the bases loaded, the Badgers took an early lead. Later in the inning, an error by shortstop Stephanie Moreno allowed two additional runs to score. A bases-loaded walk gave the Badgers a four-run lead despite only one ball leaving the infield during the frame.Continuing her dominance on the mound, Stewart allowed just one base runner through two innings on one walk, recording seven strikeouts in the process to leave Valpo hitless and scoreless.Wisconsin recorded just its fourth homerun of the season in the bottom of the second after Miller cleared the left field fence for a commanding 5-0 lead. Despite a fast offensive start, the homerun was only the second hit of the game for the Badgers.Valpo’s first legitimate offensive threat came in the top of the third after a single by Moreno and two consecutive walks with two outs loaded up the bases. With the shutout hanging in the balance, Stewart managed to force an infield popup to get Wisconsin out of the jam.Stewart, who finished her outing with 11 strikeouts, is no stranger to the unpredictable Madison weather and credited her previous playing experience to not allowing the misty and cold conditions affect one of her strongest performances on the season.“I think with this being my third year here, you just learn how to adjust,” Stewart said. “Definitely as a freshman, it was a factor and a variable you start thinking about more, but I think by junior year, you start warming up outside and figure out your adjustments early before the game. So when you get into game time, it shouldn’t affect you much.”The Badgers continued their offensive onslaught in the bottom of the third, tallying five more runs. Van Abel highlighted the frame with an RBI triple and Mersch later drove her home for an 8-0 lead. Later in the frame, a two-out RBI double by shortstop Ashley Van Zeeland followed a bunt-single by Briana Flagaur made it 10-0 before Weissenhofer could end the damage with a strikeout.Valpo’s Taylor Nadler found the gap in left center for an RBI single in the top of the fourth, putting the Crusaders on the board for the first time since the second inning of the first game, ending a six-inning scoring drought. After looking nearly untouchable in the first three frames, Stewart walked four batters in fourth, including two with the bases loaded, to cut Wisconsin’s lead down to 10-2 after three outs.A bases-loaded groundout by Miller tacked on an insurance run for the Badgers in the bottom of the fourth, which required Valpo to score at least two runs in their next frame to avoid their second consecutive mercy-rule loss of the day. Despite putting a runner in scoring position, Stewart closed out the 11-2 victory fittingly with a strikeout in a two-hit outing for her sixth win of the year.The Badgers are back in action this Friday at home against Iowa, with the first pitch of the series opener scheduled for 5 p.m.last_img read more

Brickwall Tavern Pulls Plan For Little Silver’s First Pub

first_imgOn Wednesday, Mayor Robert Neff said the borough council may take action on the matter at its next meeting, scheduled for April 15. LITTLE SILVER – A two-year-long saga over the borough’s first potential pub crawled to an unexpected conclusion last week when the developer withdrew its application. By ordinance, a projectof this scale would require230 parking spaces. The siteplan proposed just 36 spacescontained on location. Though the withdrawal was in their favor, Gale said, in situations like this, his clients don’t truly win. Krimko did not respondto multiple requests forcomment. The project, which proposed the construction of a two-story Brickwall Tavern with two bars on the first floor and a third bar with an outdoor balcony on the second floor, was unanimously dismissed by the planning board without prejudice. Though that potential exists, according to members of a resident opposition group that organized to fight the project, this withdrawal still feels like a win. “It’s a much better result than the alternative, which would be to have the application continue, so in that sense it feels like we accomplished something. Now we just have to keep our fingers crossed that the application never comes back,” Tom Kennedy said. At that February hearing the developer’s attorney, Jennifer Krimko of Ansell Grimm & Aaron, P.C. in Ocean, supplied a letter of intent from NJ Transit that outlined terms for an agreement that would allow Kelly 29, LLC to direct overflow traffic into the nearby commuter lot for the Little Silver train station. Noise pollution from patrons and musicians taking the party to the outdoor balcony of the second story bar, hours of operation that would see the last of the tavern’s customers departing at 2 a.m., and an exit point for vehicles that would potentially lead to an influx of vehicles through the Townhomes of Little Silver development were just some of the points raised since the hearings began. “It just wasn’t a good fit for that part of town,” said homeowner Kennedy. “The only other business in Little Silver open that late is the 7-Eleven. You’re talking about having live music late into the night. It was going to be too much.” During an April 4 meeting, planning board chairman John Chimento said simply, “We won’t speculate on why the application was withdrawn, but I will say, I think (Kelly 29, LLC) got the picture,” referring to the public outcry. A group of 15 townhome residents hired attorney Jeffrey B. Gale of Hazlet to represent them in the matter. Gale said the most egregious design flaw was the size and scope of the proposed project on the 0.63-acre lot. The developer, Kelly 29, LLC, could potentially re-submit the application at any point in the future, but would be forced to start the application process from square one. The developers planned to build an 11,480-square-foot facility with seating for 250 patrons. Gale speculates that since the NJ Transit letter was introduced, something went awry with the agreement. Kennedy and a number of his neighbors living in the Townhomes of Little Silver, a development located off Oceanport and Sycamore avenues adjacent to the proposed site of this project, 51 Oceanport Ave., had questioned several design and operational choices for the tavern. “In zoning matters, when you represent the applicant, they have the potential of winning and making a lot of money. When you represent the objectors, the only thing they win is the opportunity to maintain their property and quality of life. They simply maintain the status quo.” Though the application has been withdrawn, the question remains: What will happen to Little Silver’s first and only liquor license – currently held by Kelly 29, LLC – now that the Brickwall project has been shelved? “The testimony I thought was most prohibitive to the application was when their own professional said the lot was an appropriate size for a 2,000-square-foot Dunkin’ Donuts. What they were proposing was more than 11,000 square feet,” Gale said, referring to testimony provided by project engineer James Kennedy at a Feb. 7 hearing. last_img read more

Kinrade takes a chance in Europe, inks one-year deals with HC Plezen 1929 in the Czech Republic

first_imgBy Bruce FuhrThe Nelson Daily SportsIt seems like only yesterday Nelson’s Geoff Kinrade was hoisting the Calder Cup over his head as a member of the Binghamton Senators.Clicking the fast-forward button on the remote finds Nelson’s favourite son in the Czech Republic gearing up for the Europe’s most prestigious ice hockey pre season tournament as a member of the HC Plezen 1929.Kinrade inked a deal with the Czech Republic franchise after declining another minor league deal with the NHL’s Ottawa Senators.“Ottawa offered me another two-way contract and if I wanted to sign an NHL deal it would have to be with them,” Kinrade told The Nelson Daily on the reason why he decided to play in Europe after two seasons Ottawa’s AHL affiliate in Binghamton. “(Ottawa) didn’t show me that I was a top prospect and their commitment seemed to be invested in other players.“I also liked the chance to move to a new setting,” added the 26-year-old Nelson Minor Hockey League graduate.Kinrade played two seasons in the American Hockey League for the B-Sens.During that time the Michigan Tech product never got even a cup of coffee in the NHL by the Senators, past by countless times by Ottawa brass as the struggling franchise searched for answers with other players.But there was Kinrade anchoring a defence that ousted the four teams, including the Houston Aeros in six games, to capture the 2011 Calder Cup Championship.“No this isn’t a career ending move,” the six-foot, 207-pound defenceman said when asked if he ruling out ever returning to the North America and a shot at playing in the NHL.“I will be unrestricted after this coming year and will have a chance to get offers from other NHL organizations (that) are interested,” he added. “I obviously need to have a good year in Plezen to better my chances at returning to an NHL organization.”Kinrade said Ottawa wanted the former Nelson Leaf defenceman to sign another deal. However, the middle son of Terri and Marg Kinrade, thanks to a European agent, inked a one-year deal with the Czech Republic franchise that pays more than any of Ottawa’s one-year-deals.“I think (Europe) will be a good fit for me,” said the swift-skating Kinrade, playing all 23 playoffs games for the B-Sens, finishing the playoffs with a goal — an overtime winner — and four assists.“I’ll (definitely) know soon enough.”Soon enough? Try like right now.While NHL and AHL players are barely getting off the 18th green with training camps more than a month away, Kinrade has already laced up the skates in training camp for HC Plezen 1929.First action is Friday, August 12 when HC Plezen 1929 meets HC Mountfield in the first game of the 24-team European Tournament.The other teams in the East Division, which HC Plezen 1929 is slotted into, include HC Slovan Bratislava, KalPa, Oulun Kärpät and Vienna Capitals.The European Tournament has each team play one game against the five other teams in the same division and one game against one team from each of the other three divisions, for a total of eight games per team.The other three has HC Plezen 1929 up against HC CSOB Pojistovna Pardubice from the South, Tappara from the West and HC Slavia Praha from the North.The top two teams from each division qualify for the playoffs December 16-18 at the Salzburg Eisarena and Vienna’s Eisarena.After the Euorpean Trophy event, HC Plezen 1929 begins play in the Czech Republic Extraliga.HC Plezen 1929 finished fifth last season.European hockey teams on average 52 games a season.Despite experiencing a great playoff run, Kinrade didn’t feel he earned the respect of the Senators management.Which is why the trek to Plezen, located 45 minutes west of Prague.“I felt (signing in Europe) was in my best interest for my life and career,” said Kinrade, almost completely healed from an injury suffered during the playoffs.Time will only [email protected]last_img read more

What Happened to Lofa Road Pavement Plans?

first_imgA prominent citizen and professional civil servant of Lofa County has asked a startling question and wants to know what happened to the pavement plans of the Lofa County highway.Senior citizens, business entities, farmers, aid agencies and residents of Lofa County have made urgent appeals to the Liberian Government and the Kingdom of Kuwait to start the Lofa road pavement project.Mr. Joseph H. Farkollie, Sr. claims that almost everything seems mute regarding the feasibility studies conducted by the Liberian Government and supported by the Kingdom of Kuwait.He contends that Lofa County being for years the bread basket of the country, the pavement of the highway should be given urgent and serious priority in order to stimulate agriculture and boost economic development in Liberia.The Liberian accountant and human resource manager also indicated that considering Lofa County’s huge population and its great agricultural potential, pavement of the highway cannot be over emphasized.The former Manager for Operations of the Liberia Produce Marketing Corporation (LPMC) intimated that in the early 1980s, Lofa’s cocoa and coffee farmers topped the nation’s produce sector.“Such an accomplishment came as a result of the meticulous commitment of Lofa County’s farmers during that period which contributed considerably to the development, growth and progress of the Liberian economy,” Mr. Farkollie asserted.He also pointed out that Liberia could return to and surpass that level of productivity if urgent consideration could be placed on the national agenda for the complete pavement of the Lofa highway in rural Liberia.“Year in and year out, the Lofa highway has continued to be in deplorable condition perpetually impeding the free movement of food and other goods and services that are  critical to business interactions,” Mr. Farkollie lamented.The former LPMC’s senior branch accountant assigned to the entity’s Voinjama station in the 1980s indicated that if any investors are contemplating tapping into the resources of Lofa, the full pavement of the highway must be a top priority.“Besides paving the highway, GOL should consider upgrading the educational institutions and providing better quality health services for the residents and citizens of Lofa County,” Mr. Farkollie stressed.He further underscored the need for serious consideration by would be investors to the rehabilitation of the many feeder roads that highly impact agricultural activity especially the farming of needed produce for the urban markets.Asked about Lofa’s population in terms of socio-economic growth, Farkollie says that the county’s population growth, especially given political considerations, should be placed on the national agenda as one of the key factors by the Liberian Government.For countless decades, he said, Lofa County has endured too many hardships relating to deplorable road conditions and other socio-economic hardships.The former LMPC official sounded an urgent appeal to the Liberian Government and support partners associated with the Lofa road project to consider the plight of the citizens and residents of that agriculturally driven county.“Our appeals as major stakeholders in the socio-economic viability of the nation are on the basis of economic growth, political expediency and progress,” Mr. Farkollie concluded.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
