New networks provide added coverage

first_imgOver the last six years, the USC women’s soccer team has had a game shown on television exactly six times. Two of those games came during the Women of Troy’s run to a national championship in 2007, and two more came against high-powered UCLA teams.National attention · Junior midfielder Autumn Altamirano and the Women of Troy stand to benefit from the Pac-12 Networks’ coverage. – Daily Trojan file photo The last time a USC soccer game was showcased on television was in 2009 — an away game against No. 3 UCLA. Not even the Women of Troy’s 2010 game against UCLA, played at the Coliseum in front of 8,527 fans, managed to crack the airwaves.But with the Pac-12 Networks’ debut last Wednesday, the Women of Troy will be featured on TV nine times this season alone, each time reaching a larger regional audience than their previous local telecasts did.For the players, TV exposure is rewarding and exciting. Families can now watch certain road games and players can watch their friends on other teams (and scout them, too) and have the chance to be seen by a broader audience.And for coaches, the possibilities are endless: recruiting, scouting, building an identity for the program, recruiting again.“The more visibility you have, the more kids are going to be enticed to come play,”  USC coach Ali Khosroshahin said. “Unfortunately, we don’t have lights here, so it’s hard for people to get out here and see us play. I think the network will allow a lot more people to see us that normally don’t get the opportunity to.”From the pure excitement the current USC players have when talking about the chance to play on TV regularly, it’s obvious that that opportunity will be a big plus to recruits.“It has a huge impact [on recruiting],” said junior midfielder Autumn Altimirano. “Having a network that people can watch your games on is pretty awesome — we’re all really looking forward to it.”Plagued by injuries throughout a disastrous 2011 season in which the Women of Troy suffered the second-most losses in program history, Khosroshahin and the coaching staff went on the recruiting trail like they never had before, bringing in 20 new players, including five transfers. Some of them already felt the pull of the Pac-12 Networks.“When I was in high school, I never even thought about West Coast schools because I’m from 2,000 miles away,” said sophomore goalie Caroline Stanley, a transfer from Missouri. “So I think it will boost recruiting for sure, especially when they see how we play. It will be a showcase for girls all across the country.”Stanley perhaps takes thatmentality — that it’s not just the notion of being on TV that is attractive to potential recruits, but the way USC moves the ball fluidly and attacks downfield — from her new coach.“It’s only going to help us,” Khosroshahin said. “The way we play the game is [an] attractive style, and I think the more people that get to see us play, they’re going to realize what it is we got here.”And Stanley believes that the newfound exposure will be good not only for USC, but for the sport on a national level as well.“Women’s soccer doesn’t get a lot of recognition,” Stanley said. “[The] Pac-12 Networks will really showcase our team, along with the other Pac-12 teams. People will see that Pac-12 soccer can compete with the Atlantic Coast Conference.”last_img read more

3 quick takeaways from Syracuse’s 28-20 win over Boston College

first_imgCHESTNUT HILL, Mass. — Syracuse (4-4, 2-2 Atlantic Coast) beat Boston College (3-4, 0-4), 28-20, on Saturday. The Orange got back to .500 before its matchup against Clemson in two weeks.Check out three fast reactions from the game.Sloppy joesSyracuse and Boston College played relatively below average in the first half. A large reason for that is the turnovers and interceptions. The Eagles and Orange combined for five total turnovers, including two botched snaps from under center (Patrick Towles and Eric Dungey had one apiece) and an interception from Dungey.On SU’s first drive, the offense had several false start penalties, including on back-to-back plays and the BC defense jumped offsides several times. When SU was at the 35-yard line, it appeared as if the Eagles had jumped offsides and Dungey threw a deep pass to Ervin Philips on what would have been a free play. Instead, no offsides was called and the pick stood. It led to a shoving match with BC players running into the SU sideline.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThen Dungey fumbled snap on a third-and-short stopped a drive SU had pushed deep into Boston College territory. Despite getting first-half weather similar to or worse than in the Orange’s matchup with Wake Forest, SU managed two scores, one more than it tallied in the whole game against WFU.Despite scoring an end-of-third-quarter touchdown, SU had a holding call and two false starts that pushed SU back for a 1st-and-goal from the BC 20-yard line.Bend don’t breakBoth teams had to do a little bit of stretching on Saturday. The biggest impact play in the red zone was likely Parris Bennett’s interception to stop a 53-yard Boston College drive. With the Orange nursing a 14-10 lead toward the end of the third quarter, cornerback Christopher Fredrick hit BC wide receiver Michael Walker. The ball popped loose and Bennett came up with the interception. The Orange quickly drove down the field and took a 21-10 lead on a Steve Ishmael touchdown.The play became crucial because Patrick Towles scored a 75-yard touchdown on BC’s next drive and then scored on a field goal to close in on SU, 21-20.After Dungey’s interception on the first drive, Syracuse also prevented Boston College from scoring a touchdown. The Eagles started with the ball at SU’s 14 and didn’t progress in the drive, knocking home a 30-yard field goal. The two stops proved crucial in what ended up being a one-score game.On BC’s final drive of the game, it drove all the way into the red zone but failed to convert for a touchdown. Josh Black sacked BC backup quarterback Darius Wade for a loss of 11 yards on 2nd-and-10. After a short gain of seven yards, Wade tried to fit a high throw to Charlie Callinan, who dropped the pass after he was hit by two SU defenders.Clear SkiesAlthough there were anything but clear skies, they were clear enough for SU’s aerial attack. The Orange had two 100-yard receivers in Amba Etta-Tawo and Steve Ishmael. The latter had his first 100-yard receiving game of the year.Ishmael jumped and stretched his arms out in the back of the end zone, bringing his left foot down while grabbing an Eric Dungey pass for his first touchdown of the year. The touchdown accounted for the last point SU would need against Boston College.Etta-Tawo added a late 68-yard touchdown and lead Syracuse in receiving with 144 yards in the game. He also passed the 1,000-yard mark in the game, becoming the fourth SU wide receiver to do so in program history. Although he didn’t score, Brisly Estime gained 93 yards from the inside receiver position while Ervin Philips accounted for two of SU’s four touchdowns.That all added up to a 434-yard day for Eric Dungey, good for the second-most yards in program history.
