Criticizing your boss. Whispering behind his back, carping to her face, or making your supervisor out to be wrong, pathetic, or inept puts you in the danger zone, Hepler says. “If you’re doing this, don’t expect to land a promotion or last there.” continue reading »last_img read more

Syracuse stresses continued finishing ahead of No. 2 Florida State

first_imgSyracuse finished practice last Wednesday by moving the goals in, to about 30 yards away from each other. Players lined up behind each goal and began a drill in which they had a one-on-one chance against each “team’s” goalie.Practice didn’t end until one side scored 15 times. Head coach Phil Wheddon hoped it would help the team increase its scoring, which it did against Boston College on Saturday, breaking through late in the second half with three goals for a shutout win.“We’re defending pretty well, but you need to score goals to win games,” junior midfielder Jackie Firenze said after practice on Oct. 1. “We’ve been doing our very best to make the most of our chances.”Syracuse (5-5-3, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) hopes to continue to finish its attacking opportunities when it faces No. 2 Florida State (11-1, 4-0) on Thursday at 7 p.m. in Tallahassee, Florida. SU’s first three ACC games were all decided by one goal, but the team didn’t fully capitalize until its fourth conference matchup, against BC. Then, the Orange scored on three of its ten shots.But the Seminoles have shut out opponents in eight of their 12 games and have not given up more than two goals in a game all season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textPlaying in what’s widely regarded as the top conference for women’s college soccer, the importance of taking advantage of opportunities is heightened.“There’s a lot of focus on finishing the chances we do have, because we won’t get many,” said junior defender Taylor Haenlin. “We can be as solid as we want defensively, but we need to score too.”There has also been a lot of emphasis in practice on not simply shooting, but finishing, Haenlin said. Shooting is simply kicking the ball toward the goal, she said, whereas finishing is actually putting the ball into the back of the net.Saturday’s win and offensive success gave Wheddon’s team confidence that it could play with the big-time soccer powerhouses of the ACC, he said. Firenze added that she believed it was a turning point for the attack.Before it’s victory over Boston College, the Orange had only one goal on 17 shots in ACC play.While the practices and drills leading up to the Boston College game may have helped the team finish better, sophomore defender and midfielder Rebecca Pongetti said SU still has a lot of work to do.“We need to keep working as hard as possible and not take anything for granted,” Pongetti said. “We’re playing some of the best of the best. We just want to expose teams when we can and take advantage of the few chances defenses will give us.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on October 9, 2014 at 12:09 am Contact Liam: [email protected]last_img read more

Deontay Wilder continues to jab Anthony Joshua over upset loss to Andy Ruiz Jr.

first_imgDeontay Wilder was quick to blast Anthony Joshua following the British boxer’s monumental upset loss to Andy Ruiz Jr., essentially calling for the former unified world heavyweight champion a fraud who “quit.”Well, more than a month later, the WBC heavyweight champ isn’t done jabbing at AJ. Speaking with TalkSport’s Jim White, “The Bronze Bomber” doubled down on his opinion that Joshua quit during his shocking seventh-round TKO loss to Ruiz at Madison Square Garden in New York City on June 1.“I think Ruiz beat him too easily,” Wilder said. “I don’t think Joshua knows how he lost right now. In my opinion, Joshua quit.Join DAZN and watch more than 100 fight nights a year”As a fighter looking in, understanding and reading the body language, he quit. I’m sad to say, he quit, though.”Wilder proceeded to pinpoint three tell-all signs that Joshua did indeed quit, including him spitting out his mouthpiece following his fourth knockdown of the fight, blatantly ignoring the ref’s instructions to come forward and finally looking to his corner for guidance, which the WBC champ believes was a “sign like I’m looking for a way out.””I don’t think he’s a quitter,” Wilder continued, “but it’s going to sound contradicting, but he quit that night.”“In my view, Joshua quit.” ❌“As a fighter reading the body language, I’m sad to say that he quit.” 💥“Ruiz beat him too easily, he doesn’t know how he lost that fight.”@BronzeBomber says Anthony Joshua quit in his big fight with Andy Ruiz Jr. pic.twitter.com/frz1pURAHr— talkSPORT (@talkSPORT) July 26, 2019MORE: The timeline that led to Ruiz’s historic upset of JoshuaWilder’s latest comments follow him ripping Joshua with a series of tweets in the immediate aftermath of him losing to Ruiz.(Warning: explicit language) He wasn’t a true champion.
