Syracuse midfielder Lecky uses speed to advantage, scores 2 goals in win over Notre Dame

first_img Published on April 28, 2013 at 11:50 am Contact Trevor: [email protected] | @TrevorHass EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — JoJo Marasco knew Notre Dame’s defense couldn’t cover Hakeem Lecky.Lecky was way too fast.“In the first quarter he was just kind of dodging just to dodge,” Marasco said, “and then we spoke to him and a couple other guys and told him, ‘These guys can’t cover you with your speed.’”They were right. Lecky scored two goals off his speed, helping No. 7 Syracuse (11-3, 5-1 Big East) to a statement 10-4 win over No. 1 Notre Dame (10-3, 4-2) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. on Saturday night.“He really went hard to the net, and he’s finally seeing the field a lot better offensively,” Marasco said. “He’s taking some great shots.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHis first goal ended a 20-minute scoring drought to start the game for the Orange. Lecky blew by Matthew Collins, maximizing the quickness Marasco wanted him to use. He scored unassisted from 10 yards out, tying the score at one.Lecky added another goal with three minutes left in Syracuse’s dominant fourth quarter. He feasted on Notre Dame’s defense all night long, scoring a season-high two goals.“Having Lecky hit two big goals like that was huge for us,” Syracuse head coach John Desko said.Fresh off a strong performance against Georgetown when his first-half goal helped lead Syracuse to a win, Lecky’s play has improved considerably of late.Early in the season the problems were obvious. Lecky dodged too frequently and missed contested shots from mainly the right side.But the past two games those problems have disappeared.“I think it’s all coming together for him,” Marasco. “He’s playing relaxed out there.”Lecky, Ryan Barber and Henry Schoonmaker all shined on Syracuse’s second unit Saturday night.Marasco, Scott Loy and Luke Cometti consistently produce on the first line, and Marasco says that other teams don’t stand much of a chance when the second line produces.Said Marasco: “That second line’s coming together. When they produce I don’t really see a team beating us this year.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more

Zico: Managerial casualties in the league is a result of competitiveness

first_imgChief Executive Officer of Bechem United, Kingsley Osei Bonsu, believes the current managerial casualties in the league is as a result of the competitive nature of the league.The Ghana league has seen as many as 7 casualties representing 43.75% of clubs changing managers after only 11 matchdays.Aduana, Kotoko, Inter Allies, Bechem United, Medeama, Dwarfs and now Ashantigold have new men in charge of the club.For Osei Bonsu, the clubs have been competitive.“That should tell you the competitive nature of the league, he told Joy Sports.“I can tell you about Bechem United, we have changed two coaches. “ “The terrain also leads to this. When the system does not fall in line with the coach he has to go.”“For other clubs, I can confidently say that it is due to the competitive nature. If the club administrator is not convinced about the work of the coach, that’s where change comes in.”“It all has to do with the policy of the coach.”Bechem United replaced Seth Osei Wire with Portugese Manuel Zacharias.– Follow Joy Sports on Twitter: @JoySportsGH.
