Notre Dame senior Mikey Wynne leading Notre Dame in final season

Posted on by

first_imgLeading by one goal against North Carolina on April 22, 2017, then-junior Notre Dame attack Mikey Wynne patiently waited near the net.With a flurry of Tar Heels defenders surrounding him, he watched calmly as his teammate, then senior midfielder Sergio Perkovic, swam move to separate from the Tar Heels defending him. Wynne, noticing the opportunity for a possible attack, moved slightly toward Perkovic. The bait worked; the UNC defender took a step forward, to cover the passing lane while Wynne slid back, faking out the entire Tar Heels defense. Perkovic slung the ball to Wynne, who slotted away his second goal of five on the day.Ever since his freshman season, Notre Dame senior captain Wynne has taken on a large offensive role for the Irish. The Maryland native totaled over 30 points in each of his first three years. Now as a senior, he directs the team on and off the field. In seven games this season Wynne has poured in 13 goals, tying with Syracuse attack Brendan Bomberry. On Saturday, the two will play at opposite ends when No. 7 Notre Dame (5-2, 1-0 ACC) takes on No. 10 Syracuse (4-3, 2-0 ACC) in the Carrier Dome.“I always have looked up to (former Notre Dame seniors) like Jimmy Marlatt, Jack Near, and Conor Doyle for examples to how to lead,” he said. “I just want to be the best example for the guys younger than me.”Entering college in 2013, Wynne was not afraid. He had been prepared for intense competition since a young age.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textWynne grew up in a family with three older brothers, all of whom played lacrosse. The Wynne brothers routinely practiced in his backyard. Whether it was two-on-one, horse, or shooting drills, Wynne’s brothers pushed him to get better, he said.As he grew older, his preparation with his family translated into success. In his final two seasons of high school, he totaled 141 goals and 45 assists. He captained St. Paul’s (Maryland) School in his senior season to the championship game of the Maryland Interscholastic Athletic Association playoffs.“I learned the game at a quick rate,” he said. “I always have played for coaches who played the game so that helped a lot.”In his first game for ND, Wynne totaled six goals in a 14-12 win over Georgetown. He followed that up with a four-goal performance the next game against Michigan. He ended his first season with 33 goals and four assists.To the other Irish players, his success was a result of his work in the pre-season.“The way he played early on was great to see,” former Notre Dame midfielder Near said, “We had seen him play well all throughout fall so I don’t think it was really that surprising when the season came around.”During his freshman season, it was obvious to most on the team that Wynne had natural leadership qualities, Near said.As he progressed throughout college, he grew more into that commanding role.“He does more things now with distributing the ball and understanding the flow of the offense,” Notre Dame head coach Kevin Corrigan said. “Now, he’s capable of of doing a lot of other things as well. His game has continued to evolve as he’s matured.”Now, his job is to set the tone for the next generation of Fighting Irish lacrosse players, just like the upperclassmen did for him.“As a captain, I get to represent all the guys before me who were in my position,” Wynne said.

Neymar turns it on as seven-up PSG destroy Celtic

Posted on by

first_imgPSG players celebrate, they hammered a shellshocked Celtic 7-1 in the Champions LeagueParis, France | AFP | Neymar was back in the mood with the Brazilian scoring twice to set up Paris Saint-Germain’s comeback from behind as they hammered a shellshocked Celtic 7-1 in the Champions League on Wednesday.Moussa Dembele had put the visitors ahead inside a minute at the Parc des Princes, but Neymar’s brace soon turned the game around and both Edinson Cavani and Kylian Mbappe added goals of their own before the interval. They had suffered their heaviest ever home defeat in Europe when they last faced PSG in September, losing 5-0. They had also only ever managed just two wins in 29 previous away games in the group stage, and yet they stunned their hosts by going ahead with just 58 seconds played.– Celtic score too soon? –Alves gave away a corner before Paris had even made it out of their own half and Olivier Ntcham’s low delivery was swept home by Dembele, the highly-rated France under-21 striker who was on PSG’s books as a youngster.That scuppered PSG’s hopes of becoming the first side to complete the group phase without conceding a goal, but quickly the Scottish side were wondering if they had scored too soon.Neymar’s form has dipped over the last six weeks, and yet the Brazilian led the turnaround in stunning style.He levelled in the ninth minute with a low finish into the far corner following an Adrien Rabiot pass, and he scored again midway through the first half after a one-two with Verratti.That was a sixth goal in five Champions League outings this season for the world’s most expensive player, and it was also the seventh time he had found the net against Celtic.He loves playing against the Scottish side and he claimed an assist as it became 3-1 just before the half-hour, using his shoulder to help an Alves ball across goal for Cavani to turn in.Poor Celtic defending contributed to PSG getting their fourth before the interval, as they failed to deal with a Neymar free-kick into the box and Mbappe fired in.The Ligue 1 leaders took their foot off the gas after the break but they rounded out their win with three more goals late on.Celtic lost 7-0 to Neymar’s Barcelona in this competition last season and this turned into a similar hiding as Verratti made it five before Cavani volleyed in his 21st of the season.The best was saved for last as Alves made it seven with a quite stunning effort from 22 yards that arced into the top-left corner. That allowed PSG to beat their previous best result in the competition, a 7-2 victory against Rosenborg in 2000.Share on: WhatsApp Marco Verratti made it five with quarter of an hour left, before Cavani got his second and a sensational Dani Alves hit wrapped up the French giants’ biggest win in the competition.Already through to the last 16 before this game, they will look to clinch top spot in Group B ahead of Bayern Munich when they travel to Germany for their final outing next month.Bayern won 2-1 at Anderlecht on Wednesday, while PSG remain on course to finish with maximum points in the section having already set a new group-stage goals record with 24.“He is extraordinary. He wants to be there in every match. When he is on the pitch he is happy and wants his team-mates and the fans to enjoy themselves,” said PSG coach Unai Emery of Neymar’s dazzling display.Celtic, who were already eliminated, will at least secure a Europa League spot in the New Year as long as they avoid a heavy defeat at home to Anderlecht in their next outing.“There are lessons for us. We can keep the ball a bit better, and secondly you’ve got to defend better, but you also have to admire the sheer quality of Paris Saint-Germain,” admitted their manager Brendan Rodgers.last_img read more

‘Proud’ Lampard eyes first Chelsea win in home debut

Posted on by

first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Frank Lampard Chelsea managerLondon, United Kingdom | AFP | Frank Lampard admits his first match as Chelsea manager at Stamford Bridge will be a proud occasion, but only a win against Leicester will make Sunday’s homecoming a truly memorable occasion.After successive defeats in his opening two competitive games in charge, Blues legend Lampard is desperate to get his reign up and running with three points this weekend.The 41-year-old, Chelsea’s record goal-scorer, is certain to get a hero’s welcome from his adoring fans despite the frustrating start to the season.A crushing 4-0 defeat at Manchester United in Chelsea’s opening game of the Premier League campaign was followed by Wednesday’s penalty shoot-out loss to Liverpool in the European Super Cup in Istanbul.Both performances featured moments of promise for Chelsea, but Lampard knows he will be judged on results, making it essential to avoid a third consecutive defeat when Leicester visit west London.“I’m proud to manage this club. I’ve been back a few times and had great support,” Lampard said.“It will be an emotional, special day for me but the important thing is trying to get the three points and that’s what I am really worried about.”“There were good parts of the Man United game that got lost in the result but not lost on me — against Liverpool, we played one of the top teams in the world and really matched them.”Lampard has only one season of managerial experience in the second tier with Derby, but his strong connection with Chelsea persuaded owner Roman Abramovich to hire him in the close-season.It was a bold move and Lampard is enduring a baptism of fire after Chelsea sold star playmaker Eden Hazard while operating under a transfer ban that has forced him to turn to the club’s youngsters.– ‘Big challenge’ –Lampard is still getting settled into the job and he acknowledges Leicester, who opened the season with a goalless draw against Wolves, will pose a stern test to his hopes of a maiden win. “It’s a big game for us in front of our home fans for the first time this season,” Lampard said ahead of the game against Brendan Rodgers’ team.“Leicester are very much a team that should be respected for the players and manager they have got and how they have performed in recent years.“I know Brendan well. He’s a fantastic manager. He’s got a great group of players there. They will be well coached so we are going to have a big challenge.“Our mindset is important. It’s been a strange two games. We can’t think the strong performance on Wednesday will replicate itself just because we walk out on that pitch. It’s important we tackle it head on with a real focus.”Lampard was forced to condemn racist abuse of Tammy Abraham on social media after the young Chelsea striker missed the decisive penalty against Liverpool.It remains to be seen if Abraham returns to the team after he started the United game and was then a substitute against Liverpool as Olivier Giroud came in.Lampard also has German defender Antonio Rudiger and Brazilian winger Willian back in contention after the pair returned to training.Rodgers, who worked in Chelsea’s backroom staff during Lampard’s playing career, believes the inexperienced manager will prove a success in the long-term.“In the games I have seen, Chelsea have played with a good tempo and intensity,” Rodgers said.“Frank understands the importance of giving those young players a chance, but he also knows he has to win matches and get results, and I believe he will do well there.”last_img read more
