Syracuse football opponent preview: What to know about Wake Forest

first_imgThe Wake Forest report: WFU started off its season 4-0, beating Tulane, Duke Delaware and Indiana. Most recently, the Demon Deacons lost to North Carolina State, 33-16, on the road.Starting quarterback Kendall Hinton is still recovering from a knee injury so the Orange is going to see John Wolford at quarterback again. Wolford threw for 373 on 43 attempts against SU last season. Starting freshman running back Cade Carney missed WFU’s last three games also with a knee injury, but Wake Forest head coach Dave Clawson said he hopes Carney will play against SU. The last time Carney played, he gouged Duke for 108 yards and three touchdowns.WFU runs the ball for about as many yards as it throws it each game, but scores most of its touchdowns on the ground with a 10-to-3 rushing-to-passing touchdown ratio. Running back Matt Colburn will likely shoulder most of the load.Defensively, the Demon Deacons are led by Duke Ejiofor, who has the ninth-most sacks per game in the country (1.1) and eighth-most tackles for loss per game (1.8).  Wake Forest’s defensive weakness comes in the passing game where it ranks near the bottom of the ACC in yards allowed and in the bottom half of the country in passing efficiency defense.How Syracuse beats Wake Forest: If the weather cooperates enough. It won’t have to be a clear night, but heavy rain and wind will not equal success for Syracuse. There’s only so much Eric Dungey can do to “grip it and rip it” through a hurricane passing along the coast. A low-scoring game favors Wake Forest, considering Syracuse’s struggles to run the ball this season and Wake Forest’s relative success.Chase Guttman | Staff PhotographerStat to know: 64.7Wake Forest boasts a red zone defense that has held its opponents to under a 65 percent success rate. That ranks ninth in the country and is the only statistical category in which the team is slotted in the top 10 in the nation.Player to watch: Cade Carney, running backCade Carney was named the starting running back prior to the season as a true freshman. Though he only got seven carries for 21 yards in the season opener, he ripped up Duke in his second career game, including a 55-yard touchdown run. Syracuse doesn’t have the best rush defense and the weather could force this game to stay on the ground. If Carney is healthy, he’ll be key in Wake Forest’s attempts to dominate the running game.

Recovery hits a snag

first_imgDUARTE – La Canada High School’s softball team appeared to have turned the corner after a rough 4-16 season a year ago. The Spartans were 3-0 and reached the championship game of the Duarte Tournament. A throwing error by Stenzel allowed the Knights to take a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Lexi Thomas’s RBI single and a towering two-run double by Hannah Harmon made it 5-0. Ontario Christian scored one run in the second, three in the third and six in the fourth to grab a commanding 15-0 lead. The Spartans, trailing 15-0, showed some life with four runs in the fifth on RBI singles by Devon Zerebko and Anna Brenner, and a two-run single by Abby Ulf. Brenner, Zerebko and Kylie Mulligan each had three hits to lead the Spartans. “The girls know that this is a learning tool and we’ve got to get better from it,” Valassidis said. Ronnie Alvarado’s booming two-run homer to center in the fifth closed out the Knights’ scoring. Kelsey Nanchy had three hits for Ontario Christian. scott.galetti@sgvn.com (626) 962-8811, Ext. 4456. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong. Please try again.subscribeCongratulations! You’re all set! They’re hoping Friday’s game against Ontario Christian was merely a misstep. Ontario Christian took advantage of seven La Canada errors in a 19-4 win at Duarte High. center_img “It was tough for the girls and I feel for them,” first-year Spartans coach Justin Valassidis said. “I was hoping that the girls would wind up with a better game today, but after last year, 4-16, we’re looking for a great year and a year of redemption.” La Ca ada (3-1) didn’t find any redemption Friday as Ontario Christian (4-0) collected 11 hits. The only thing that went wrong for the Knights was the field lights went off while they were taking their victory photos. Not only did the Spartans suffer their first loss, they lost starting pitcher Jade Stenzel, who was hit by a line drive off the bat of Donie Thomas in the fifth inning. “It looks like it might be a possible fracture, but she’s being sent down to the urgent care to identify that,” Valassidis said. last_img read more
