Women of Troy look to get back on track in Texas

first_imgIntent on rebounding from a frustrating 1-0 season-opening loss to San Diego, the USC women’s soccer team must bear the Texas heat this weekend as it squares off against Texas Christian University and the University of Texas at Austin in two non-conference matchups.Moving on · Junior midfielder Carly Butcher looks to continue her strong play as the soccer team travels to Texas for two games this weekend. – Sundaram Kuppuswamy | Daily Trojan On Friday, the Women of Troy will kick off their road schedule against TCU (1-1); from there, they will travel farther south to face Texas (1-0) on Sunday.Despite the disheartening beginning to the season, which included being dropped unceremoniously from the top 25 rankings, the team is not dwelling on its opponents. When asked about the challenges TCU and Texas pose, coach Ali Khosroshahin turned his focus to the Women of Troy.“To be honest, the biggest challenge is ourselves,” Khosroshahin said. “Right now, the biggest challenge is the ball and ourselves.”Evident in Khosroshahin’s response was not only the frustration that accompanies an unexpected early-season loss, but also his steadfast confidence in his team.During practices, he has emphasized maintaining formation as the team progresses down the field and staying connected. And as senior striker Megan Ohai pointed out, by staying in their own lanes, the Women of Troy can stretch the field and make themselves more difficult to defend.“We weren’t doing the little things,” Ohai said. “Everyone needs to work together and get on the other side of some of these crosses.”Undoubtedly, teamwork is how the Women of Troy will generate more offense and enjoy sustained success this season.“If we don’t connect, we won’t generate anything. It’s all based on the same thing,” Khosroshahin said.In TCU and Texas, USC faces two unfamiliar opponents, both unranked and coming off of mediocre seasons. The Horned Frogs opened their season with a 3-0 loss to Texas Tech, but soon rebounded, beating Texas Southern 7-0. The Longhorns won their only game 2-1 against North Carolina State, but also beat Louisiana State by the same score in an exhibition game.last_img read more

The impact reportedly flung Bristol into a nearby gutter while his motorcycle ended up under the minibus. Extracted from the gutter with visible injuries about his body, he was rushed to the GPHC, where he subsequently died.At Bristol’s home on Sunday morning, his mother, Sharon Mitchell, told Guyana Times that she rushed to the scene after being informed of the accident. There, she saw only his mangled bike lying on the parapet, but she was told the youngman had been taken to the GPHC.At the GPHC, she recalled, she saw a Police rank with blood on his skin, but she was unaware that it was he who had been involved in the accident.“I went to the hospital and I saw this Indian guy with blood on his skin, and I ask him if he was the person that bring in my son, and somebody turned to me and said that he was the one that knock him too,” the distraught mother related.She detailed that on her way into the hospital, she was told by a woman that her son had already passed away, but she did not believe this.The tearful mother continued her explanation, “I didn’t believe, so I went to see if I could see the doctor, and I had to wait… Then she came, and there were two nurses cleaning up, and she told me that let them clean up first, because she didn’t want me to see the amount of blood that was around him…“When I was eventually allowed to go in, I saw my son lying there lifeless. I rubbing he head, I try opening he eyes, calling he name; no answer…,” the woman related.The woman revealed that she further broke down when she saw the driver who was responsible for her son’s demise.“When I see the bus, I start to lash it up…then when I check, I saw blood oozing out from the back of the bus where they had he lying (down),” she revealed.The late Akemo’s father, Percy Bristol, detailed that the Police rank involved in the accident had attempted to flee the scene. “Some people came and had to stop the vehicle, because the driver was trying to go away; and like the driver was saying that it’s just two beers he had, as if that was supposed to justify what he did. He was driving so fast that he didn’t even see my son; because there was no skidding, so he didn’t even pull brakes!” the man explained.The demise of the late Akemo Anthony Bristol has been described as a big blow to his family. He was described as having been a very humble person, whose humility had “separated him from the rest”. He leaves to mourn his son, parents, three siblings, and many relatives and friends.The implicated Constable has since been taken into Police custody, where he is said to be assisting with investigations. Guyana Times understands that this Police rank has failed the breathalyser test administered to him. In addition, it has been reported that the minibus was speeding at time of the accident.It is not clear whether Bristol had been wearing a helmet at time of the accident.
