Hockey Northstars take three losses in four days; Warriors blank Ontario Bay

first_imgTyler Murray got C-NS in front midway through the first period before Robert French tied it and Aidan Elbrecht converted with 10 seconds left in the frame, giving New Hartford a 2-1 edge.The deficit grew to 3-1 before the last minute of the second period, where Holden Sarosy scored with 25 seconds to play and, a mere 15 seconds later, Murray converted again, tying it 3-3.Again it fluctuated in the third period, the Spartans retaking the lead on John Syrotynski’s goal, C-NS pulling back even when Braylen Tuff found the net with 3:56 to play in regulation.But in the five-minute OT period, Syrotynski returned and sent a shot that just eluded Kaii Van Iuven and past the goal line for New Hartford’s game-winner.With no turnaround, C-NS had to come back to the Twin Rinks Thursday to face Fayetteville-Manlius, and were far better on defense, yet still lost 2-1 to the Hornets.A first-period goal by Logan Bucher was matched by F-M, who then inched in front in the second period and hung on the rest of the way.Miller took his turn in the net and had 27 saves, only allowing goals to Mike Hockenberger and Josh Kuchinski as Jake Johnston had 20 stops for the Hornets.Liverpool would avoid these ups and downs when, in its only game of the week, it traveled to Ontario Bay last Tuesday night and, carried by Connor Boland on one end and James Welch on the other, put together a 3-0 shutout of the Storm.For a while, Boland’s first-period goal was all that could get managed against Ontario Bay goalie Julia Holister, who finished with 19 saves, but in the third period Boland converted twice more for the hat trick.On each of those three scoring plays, Matt Gagnon got an assist, with Anthony Bentley adding an assist as the Storm had its fair share of chances, but saw Welch amass 25 saves.Then the Warriors were off until another trip north on Wednesday to face Watertown IHC, the prelude to a showdown between Liverpool and C-NS Friday at the Twin Rinks, the Northstars having won 5-3 when they first met Dec. 20.Share this:FacebookTwitterLinkedInRedditComment on this Story Tags: C-NSice hockeyliverpool The Red Raiders tied it in the second and then, a three-minute stretch of the third period, twice found the net, Derek Schumaker as the focal point since he scored one Fulton goal and assisted on the other two, by Kevin Van Buren and Freddy White.A far bigger factor, though, was the way Red Raiders goaltender Jadon Lee stopped everything C-NS threw at him, earning 51 saves to carry his team as Jordan Miller got 22 saves for the Northstars.Two nights later, C-NS was at New Hartford, where it engaged in a wild, back-and-forth battle that dragged into overtime before the Northstars fell to the Spartans 5-4.center_img Entering the decisive month of February, the Cicero-North Syracuse and Liverpool ice hockey teams both knew that they had to quickly turn things around.The Northstars traveled to Fulton last Monday night, where its offense again went quiet for long stretches and it took a 3-1 defeat to the Red Raiders.A Fulton turnover led to a C-NS goal by Matt Cramer in the first period, but that was all the Northstars could produce.last_img read more

University receives 85 responses regarding health center doctor accused of misconduct

first_imgThe University administration announced in a memo Wednesday evening that USC had received 85 reports and responses regarding a gynecologist who was fired due to allegations regarding sexually inappropriate and racially insensitive behavior.In the memo, Senior Vice President for Administration Todd Dickey and Provost Michael Quick thanked those who reported their experiences with gynecologist George Tyndall following a memo from President C. L. Max Nikias Tuesday regarding Tyndall’s firing. The memo said a large amount of those who reported new information about Tyndall were former students.“We are taking great care to respond to all persons individually, and to make sure that everyone is receiving our full support, as well as our compassion and understanding,” the letter stated. “Every response — whether identified or anonymous — is extremely important to us, and is being carefully addressed to determine the appropriate referral or follow up.”Dickey and Quick invited those with more information on Tyndall’s conduct to continue submitting reports, and to contact University counselors if needed. “We want to reiterate that each individual report is being handled with sensitivity,” the letter stated. “We care deeply about how this matter has affected each person in our community, and we are dedicated to providing the most compassionate support we can.”Tyndall was put on administrative leave in June 2016 and later terminated by the University in June 2017 following an investigation into his conduct with patients at the student health center.In 2016, the USC Office of Equity and Diversity looked into Tyndall’s conduct at the student health center during physical examinations. A Los Angeles Times report found that several of Tyndall’s patients submitted letters to the University since the early 2000s.“We understand that any unacceptable behavior by a health professional is a profound breach of trust,” Nikias wrote in the original memo. “On behalf of the university, I sincerely apologize to any student who may have visited the student health center and did not receive the respectful care each individual deserves.”last_img read more
