Women’s soccer: Wisconsin junior midfielder Rose Lavelle named semifinalist for MAC Hermann Trophy, called up for U.S. National Team stint

first_imgThe Wisconsin women’s soccer team may have suffered an abrupt end to a promising season, but the shortcomings of the team haven’t deflected any attention to the quality season of midfielder Rose Lavelle. As the only unanimous selection to the all-conference team, Lavelle once again showed the Big Ten why she is considered among the country’s elite players.Coming into the season on the MAC Hermann Trophy watch list, which honors the best male and female soccer player in the NCAA, Lavelle managed to lead a depleted Wisconsin attack to an unlikely regular season conference crown, scoring seven goals and tallying three assists along the way. In addition to her impressive stat line were the intangible benefits she brought to the team, which include her ability to draw multiple defenders to the ball and maintain her spring speed while dribbling like few others can.Women’s soccer: Lavelle, unsure at start of college career, has found home at WisconsinAs a two-time all-conference selection and national player of the year candidate, it’s hard to imagine a player of Rose Read…It was a 2015 campaign that left no one surprised at her being selected one of the 15 semifinalists for the Hermann Trophy, joining Penn State star forward Raquel Rodriguez as the only Big Ten players to earn the nomination. Lavelle is the first Badger semifinalist since goalkeeper Heather Taggart in 1991, who went on to finish as the runner up.The next cut of nominees will occur on Dec. 11, which will leave three women left for consideration. If Lavelle were to advance, she would earn the chance to become the first woman in school history to walk away with the award.Certainly helping her case for the award will be her call up to the U.S. Women’s National Team. As a member of the squad’s last four matches of their Victory Tour, Lavelle will suit up for her first match Dec. 6 against Trinidad and Tobago at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii.Noting a mix of nerves and excitement in reaction to the promotion, Lavelle said playing with some of her childhood idols will be a surreal experience, namely legend Abby Wambach, who will play her last game as a professional at the tour’s end in New Orleans.“I’ve grown up watching her,” Lavelle said. “It will be really exciting to be there to send her off in person. It still seems a little unreal that I’ll be there for that.”last_img read more

Baraza upbeat he can guide Sofapaka to title

first_imgHowever, Baraza who was elevated to the post of coach after the Ugandan’s exit believes they will be a force to reckon in the race to this year’s title despite currently sitting six points off the leaders.“He might have had his reasons to say that. But I have been with these players from the beginning of the season and I know their potential. They have the experience and if we do things in the right way, we are strong contenders for the title,” Baraza told Capital Sport.Baraza, suited for the occasion took charge of his first match in charge of the club on Sunday but his charges were held to a 1-1 draw by visiting Sony Sugar who played almost half the match with 10-men.Baraza was pleased with the point, but was left ruing the missed opportunities.New Sofapaka head coach John Baraza was well suited for the occasion on his first match in charge against Sony Sugar on April 15, 2018.

This is work in progress and we will work on it. We will get it soon,” a confident Baraza added.The draw left Batoto ba Mungu six points off leaders Mathare United who suffered their second defeat of the season, losing 2-1 to Posta Rangers at the Camp Toyoyo.Two goals from Kennedy Otieno and Jockins Atudo off set plays in the opening 13 minutes saw Mathare tackle a mountain and though Clifford Alwanga halved the deficit before thehalf way mark in the opening half, it proved to be tough for them.“If we can keep the momentum that we saw in the second half and correct some few mistakes. We gave way too many balls. If we can work on that then we can create more and force a good start,” the coach said after the game.“You have to be disappointed for not getting the three points but not extending the lead at the top. I think what is important is that the disappointment can be a huge learning lesson from the youngsters,” the coach further noted.The loss saw them retain a one point lead over Gor Mahia who have a three-match deficit owing to their participation in the CAF Confederation Cup.For Posta though, it was a priceless win that took them fourth on the log, a welcome result especially after their loss away to Zoo Kericho.AFC Leopards forward Ezekiel Odera celebrates his goal, mourning his Mother.

But there has been improvement in the team hopefully we can fix the small areas of weakness and we will be good,” Kitambi said.Sony Sugar FC head coach Patrick Odhiambo issues out instruction to his players during their Kenyan Premier League match against Sofapaka on April 15, 2018.
