SYRACUSE, N.Y. -- All the conference shuffling going on will change the future of the college sports landscape, but what about the here and now? As for the SU football team, they returned to practice Tuesday evening for the first time since falling to USC over the weekend.
As Doug Marrone mentioned at his weekly Monday press conference, he doesn't want this ACC thing to turn into a distraction for his team. And from what his players are saying, it doesn't sound like it has.
Deon Goggins senior nose tackle said, he didn't even know what was happening until a reporter told him about it.
The Orange hit the gridiron for the game with Toledo Saturday with a noon kick. And you can watch it on Time Warner Cable Sports.
And in boys high school soccer, Baldwinsville needed overtime at West Genny to remain unbeaten. Baldwinsville was on the road at West Genny putting their 5-0 record on the line and would escape on a West Genny own goal in the second sudden death overtime. The final score was 4-3.
The Bees would lead 1-0 in the first half on a goal by Ben Ramin. Then they looked to Michael Guardino to make it 2-0. He would be able to chorale the loose ball and put it in and it was 2-0 Baldwinsville at the half.
West Genny would bounce back with 2 unanswered goals, the second was on a breakaway from senior striker Jake Sutherland and that tied it at 2-2.
But the Bees had an answer in the 62nd minute with a goal from Jack Jeffery to make it 3-2 That one looked like maybe it would be the game winner with just 18 minutes to play.
But only until West Genny got a free kick deep in B'ville territory with 13 minutes to play. A well designed set play produced a lofting free kick headed in by Jake Sutherland for his 2nd goal of the game.
So they'd go to overtime where B'ville would prevail on an own goal by West Genesee. 4-3 was the final.
