Add to Google+ Sutherland wins one for the program By Paul Gotham on October 28, 2017No Comment “Will played a beautiful ball,” fellow classmate John Mozrall said. “Their men were pushed up. Dylan just went right around them. He one-timed it with a beautiful finish to the far corner, off the volley. It was amazing.”Mozrall iced the victory with 1:26 remaining when he beat out an HF-L defender and goalkeeper and touched home his team-leading 15th goal of the season.“It was just a point of effort,” Mozrall said of the goal. “There was no skill involved. You just got to work at it. You work hard enough, you get the win.”Sutherland (11-7-1) opened the season 2-4-1 and entered sectionals a game over .500 at 8-7-1. Friday night they held off an HF-L (16-3-0) squad which was ranked No. 12 NYS Class A.“We wanted to attack the outsides and clog up the middle,” Hopkins explained. “We wanted to make sure we had Parker (Hotchkiss) up top and tried to limit his opportunities and we did.”Sutherland lost in the finals from 2013-2015. The Knights have not allowed a post-season goal this year and have outscored opponents 9-0 over the three wins.“They worked so hard all year,” Hopkins stated. “We’ve talked about this. This is what we wanted – the ‘Block.’”The loss ended a three-year run for HF-L which had won 12 straight games including a victory over Class A1 champion Brockport in the regular season finale.“Hats off to Sutherland,” HF-L head coach Mike Merrill said. “They played really hard. They had a great strategy and frustrated us. We couldn’t make good on our chances and they did. That’s soccer. I’m really excited for those guys.”Sutherland moves on to play Class A1 champion Brockport in the regional qualifier. A 5 p.m. kickoff is scheduled at Spencerport Central Schools on Tuesday.*Updated to include the time and location of the Class A regional qualifier.

(Photo: PAUL GOTHAM/Pickin’ Splinters)By PAUL GOTHAMForgive Sean Hopkins and his Pittsford Sutherland Knights if they have had tunnel vision for the past couple weeks. Falling in three straight sectional finals can do that to a team.Friday night Sutherland turned the tables on those disappointments.Freshman Dylan Kladstrup and senior John Mozrall scored a goal apiece, and Sutherland upended three-time reigning champion Honeoye Falls-Lima, 2-0 in the Section V Class A2 finals played at Hilton’s LeBeau Field.“We had some other guys who were really close over the last few years,” Hopkins said. “We wanted to win for them. They’ve been sending us emails and text messages. For the program. We just wanted to win one for the program. I’m pumped that they got it done. It was great.”The championship was the program’s first since 2007.“It’s such a relief,” the senior stopper said. “It’s such a great feeling. My sophomore year we lost to them, and we got our revenge. There is no better feeling.”Graupman delivered the eventual game-winning assist with a 65-yard free kick that Kladstrup redirected home in the 61st minute.“He got really good contact on it with a volley and just nailed it bottom left corner,” Graupman said of his teammate.

WOS came out swinging on the opening drive of the game, led by quarterback Chaka Watson, who finished the game 7-of-15 for 53 yards with one score. The first-year starter completed his first four passes for 39 yards. The drive seemed to stall inside the Indians’ 10 before Watson threw a 6-yard touchdown pass on third down.PNG quarterback Roschon Johnson, who recently verbally committed to Texas, had a slow start missing on 6 out of his first 7 pass attempts. With 6:18 remaining in the second quarter, Johnson threw a 60-yard bomb to senior Preston Riggs, who finished the game with four receptions for 152 yards and a pair of touchdowns. Indian head coach Brandon Faircloth credited Johnson and Riggs chemistry to their hard work in the offseason. “Roschon and Preston work really hard at timing in the offseason, he said. “Hard work pays off and Preston is a very explosive receiver. Roschon also does a good job of finding him.”On the first play of the second half the duo connected again for 70-yard connection. This time, Riggs caught short slant and out ran the defense for the rest of the way.“Preston is a tremendous receiver,” Johnson said. “He has raw ability and talent. It’s not really that hard. I just have to put it in his hands and he’ll do the rest.”Mustang running back Kavyn Cooper, who compiled 108 yards on seven carries, quickly responded with a one-play, 66-yard touchdown. By Chris MooreSpecial to The NewsPORT NECHES — Port Neches-Groves got a taste of football under the lights, as they hosted West Orange-Stark for their first scrimmage at Indian Stadium on Friday. The reigning 4A Division II champion Mustangs came out on top 17-14 after a late, fourth quarter field goal. Faircloth said his team was happy to get to hit someone else for a change and the defending champs were a good measuring stick.“(WOS) is going to have big plays,” he said. “They are an explosive football team. I thought our defense did a great job of responding. Offensively, we got some good drives together, which was really nice to see.”Johnson, who finished with 172 yards and two touchdowns, said that he wants to work on his consistency.“I felt like (the scrimmage) was OK,” he said. “I have a lot of stuff to work on. That’s the good part about scrimmages. You get to see what your weakness is and work on them throughout the week. I felt like I was kind of off and on. I haven’t been able to get into a good rhythm, yet. That’s a good defense over there. I’m not taking anything away from them. I just can’t force certain passes.”Faircloth said he is pleased with the Indians’ performance despite being outscored.“We had a great effort,” he said. “We played a bunch of young guys tonight, which is good to get them in the action and see what they can do. Like any coach is going to tell you, we have a long way to go. We got to have a great week of practice before we scrimmage West Brook, Friday night.”PNG hosts West Brook for a scrimmage next Friday, at Indian Stadium. Kickoff is slated for 7 p.m. The Mustangs travel to Vidor to face the Pirates in scrimmage Thursday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at Pirates Stadium.
EB14: Redesigned Arsis 10 speed Shifters from MicroShift, plus MTB thumb shifters and cassettesEB14: Redesigned Arsis 10 speed Shifters from MicroShift, plus MTB thumb shifters and cassettes
Another little bit that Microshift was quite proud of showing at the show were a set of bar end shifters indexed for Shimano 10 speed mountain groups. With a lot of alternative bikes being setup, for example drop bar bikes with Shadow rear derailleur and wide gear ratios, the bar ends offer more flexibility. Also offered with a bar top mount the shifters provide an interesting option for those building bikes outside the box. The rear shifters can be set to either 10 speed indexed or friction, and the front are friction only and can control a double or triple.We didn’t get pricing details, but outside of the new road shifters everything is already available from Microshift’s distributors with more info on their website. As for the road stuff, we might try to get a set in to review as an upgrade to an old drivetrain.Microshift.co.tw The President and VP of Microshift were on hand from Taiwan at Eurobike to show a few new key pieces of tech they have recently developed. The 15 year old company isn’t really known to truly challenge the Big 3 component manufactures (Shimano, Campagnolo, and SRAM), but they do offer a good quality line of products at what are usually much more down to earth pricing. Although the bulk of road (and some mountain) drivetrains have moved on to 11 speed at the high-end, Microshift just introduced a new set of 10 speed levers at the show. The new shifters, which will be available in their top, carbon Arsis group, as well their third-tier Centos group, finally make the jump to cable routing beneath your bar tape.The shape and function of the levers looks to borrow a bit from each of the Big 3, with a lever shape reminiscent of the previous generation of Campy, hoods that look a bit SRAM-ish and shifting that feels like a combo of Shimano and Campy. Take a look at the pics above, and if you like the looks of what they mash up, maybe they would make good replacements when you look to upgrade a lower-level group set.Jump past the break for a look at their carbon road derailleurs and MTB thumbies… The full Arsis group is designed to be direct replacements for Shimano groups, and are therefore compatible with Shimano 10 speed systems, letting you mix-and-match or get the whole group. Microshift targets Arsis at the Ultegra 6700 / Dura-Ace 7900 level and offers both front and rear derailleurs in options with either more or less carbon bits.An interesting addition from Microshift this year are new 10 speed cassettes in 11-28, 11-32, and 11-36 configurations. The 11-28 is available with the 5 big cogs on an aluminum carrier, or loose cogs as with the wider range. They will also offer a 9 speed 11-32. They might just be a much more affordable replacement option for keeping those older, but otherwise functional Shimano/SRAM groups running for another couple of years.
Said Arabia reports 3rd MERS case this monthA 39-year-old man is the latest addition to Saudi Arabia’s MERS-CoV case count. His illness was reported today by the Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH).The case-patient is a Saudi national from the city of Hofuf in the Eastern province bordering the Persian Gulf. He reportedly had contact with suspected or confirmed MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome) cases in the community or hospital setting, but no other demographic or exposure details were given.His case brings the cumulative count in Saudi Arabia since June 2012 to 984, with 428 deaths, 552 recoveries, and 4 active cases. His case is the third so far this month in the country, compared with 8 in April, 53 in March, and 75 in February.May 5 MOH update Studies note pertussis vaccine protection in infants, waning effect in teensTwo studies yesterday by Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) investigators noted the effectiveness of the pertussis vaccine in preventing death and hospitalization in infants but also the waning effectiveness of the pertussis-containing Tdap vaccine over time among adolescents in a 2012 Washington state pertussis (whooping cough) outbreak.Both studies appeared in the journal Pediatrics.In the first study, CDC researchers analyzed data on 45,404 US pertussis cases in infants from 1991 through 2008, including 258 fatal cases. They used multivariable logistic regression to estimate the effect of one or more doses of pertussis vaccine on outcomes and to assess factors related to death from pertussis. Among infants 42 days and older (ie, age-eligible for pertussis vaccination), receiving at least one dose of vaccine was associated with a 72% decrease in the estimated relative risk of fatal pertussis (adjusted odds ratio [aOR] of 0.28). Vaccine also protected against hospitalization (aOR, 0.69) and pneumonia (aOR, 0.80).In assessing factors associated with fatal pertussis, the authors found the risk to be elevated in Hispanics and Native Americans (aOR of 2.28 and 5.15, respectively). Antibiotic treatment was associated with a lower risk of death (aOR, 0.28).In infants younger than 42 days, the risk of death was again elevated in Hispanics and lower with antibiotic use.The authors concluded that providers “should ensure vaccination as early as 6 weeks of age during pertussis outbreaks and provide early recommended antibiotic treatment.”May 4 Pediatrics abstract on infant protectionIn the Washington study, CDC researchers teamed with those from the Washington State Department of Health on a case-control study during the state’s pertussis epidemic in 2012 among adolescents born from 1993 through 2000.All pertussis cases from Jan 1 through Jun 30, 2012, in seven counties were included, with each case matched with three controls. Participants were classified by whether they had received a mix of the whole-cell and the acellular vaccine, known as Tdap (tetanus, diphtheria, and acellular pertussis, adsorbed), or just Tdap alone. Those born from 1998 on would have received Tdap only.Among adolescents who received acellular vaccines exclusively (450 cases and 1,246 controls), overall Tdap vaccine effectiveness (VE) was 63.9%, but it varied widely from the last date of vaccination. VE within 1 year of vaccination was 73%, but at 2 to 4 years post-vaccination, it declined to 34%.The authors conclude, “Lack of long-term protection after vaccination is likely contributing to increases in pertussis among adolescents.”May 4 Pediatrics abstract on waning Tdap effectiveness
US Army’s Electronic Warfare Planning & Management Tool is Almost ReadyUS Army’s Electronic Warfare Planning & Management Tool is Almost Ready
Raytheon has now entered the final phase of developing Capability Drop 4 of the Electronic Warfare Planning and Management Tool (EWPMT) for the US Army. The project is a multi-million dollar contract awarded by the army to be completed over the next 24 months by Raytheon.The EWPMT is a first-of-its-kind tool that plans, manages and controls sensors and systems in the electromagnetic spectrum, providing critical information about what is happening in a crowded signal environment. Delivered in what the Army calls Capability Drops, CD4 represents the final stage of a fully operating capability, or Increment 1.According to Niraj Srivastava, product line manager for Raytheon Electronic Warfare Systems, the EWPMT thus gives the Army the freedom to add new capabilities and algorithms so they can manage an increasingly complex electromagnetic spectrum. And because it uses open architecture, the tool can be shared with other military services. Open architecture also allows the tool to execute cyber effects in multi-domain operations.Raytheon delivered CD1 and CD2, and is currently working on CD3, which addresses using the tool in a tactical environment against threats. CD3 also includes all of the functionality of Raytheon’s Raven Claw, a mobile version of EWPMT that helps operators control signals in the field even without a host server or reliable connection to external data. Under the CD4 contract, Raytheon will continue to develop software and the user interface for a more connected, mobile system.
