Freshmans late goal lifts Ohio State womens soccer team into Sweet 16

Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe Ohio State women’s soccer team (13-6-3) is headed to the Sweet 16 after defeating the Virginia Tech Hokies (15-4-2) on Friday afternoon 1-0 in the second round of the NCAA tournament. Freshman midfielder Arden Holden netted her first career goal with 11 minutes remaining to keep the Buckeyes’ postseason run afloat. With the win, the Scarlet and Gray are headed to their third Sweet 16 in the past six seasons. The beginning of the game was slow, as the first 15 minutes did not present many opportunities to score for either side. In the 20th minute, OSU finally got to a solid opportunity in the final third when senior midfielder/forward Michela Paradiso tried to curl one in from 20 yards out on the left wing but it sailed over the crossbar. Two minutes later, the Buckeyes had another opportunity to score when junior forward Lindsay Agnew sent a strong ball to junior forward Nichelle Prince, but a Virginia Tech defender cleared it away. The Hokies, who entered the game as the 14th-overall seed, were able to generate a scoring opportunity in the 43rd minute when sophomore forward Alani Johnson sent one on the frame, but OSU redshirt junior goalkeeper Jillian McVicker made a lunging save to preserve the scoreless match. The teams headed into the locker rooms at halftime tied 0-0. The Hokies led the Buckeyes 6-1 in shots, 1-0 on goal. OSU came back in the second half with plenty of opportunities to score early on, but the Buckeyes simply could not find the back of the net. In the 79th minute, the Buckeyes put the one and only goal on the board. Prince split two Virginia Tech defenders before playing the ball out to Holden who finished off the keeper. Holden has appeared in 21 of the Buckeyes’ 22 games this season, but her game-winning goal marked the first time in her young career she has scored. The final 11 minutes of play contained some opportunities for the Hokies to level the match, including a solid look off a free kick in the 87th minute, but they could not get past McVicker, meaning OSU was able to hold on for the 1-0 win. For the game, Virginia Tech held a sizable lead in shots, 20-5, including 4-2 on goal. McVicker made four saves to earn her second clean sheet of the season for OSU. The Buckeyes are set to play conference foe Penn State in the Sweet 16 after the Nittany Lions dominated Boston University in the second round, winning 6-0. In the lone meeting between the two teams during the regular season, Penn State topped OSU 2-1 on Oct. 24. With an opportunity to advance to the quarterfinals on the line, the rematch is set to take place on Sunday in State College, Pennsylvania.  Kickoff is penciled in for 1 p.m. read more

Harlem Park Community Assc Working to Restore Neighborhood

first_imgPopulation loss and vacancy are the biggest problems facing Harlem Park. (Photo by Tiffany Ginyard)There’s a buzz going around Harlem Park that change is coming.But first, members of the Harlem Park West Community Association (HPW) are working to bring some old things back— like the activism and leadership that helped this neighborhood thrive in its heyday.Harlem Park West Community Association was formed in April 2015, in response to the death of Freddie Gray, an unarmed black male who died in police custody, that same month. The board of directors is mostly comprised of people outside of the community, save the organization’s president, Joy Ross, who purchased her home on Fulton Avenue in 2014.“We just get out there and get things done,” Ross told the AFRO. “We want the people here to know that, in spite of the current structure and conditions, we are people that really care.”Historically, Harlem Park was a mixed-income Black community. Today, the median income is $27,000, the unemployment rate is 51.8%, and about 45% of the community is vacant, according to the 2010 Census. What was once a spiritual and cultural epicenter for Blacks living on Baltimore’s West side is now an eyesore. Vacant lots are littered with bulk trash, blocks of abandoned properties draw criminal activity, and desolate playgrounds give an air of hopelessness. This has been the scene in Harlem Park for decades too long.In just eight short months, HPW have made great strides on the home front. The beautification process is well underway– scheduled neighborhood clean up days have brought residents out of their homes and closer together; trees are sprouting from green spaces that were once vacant lots covered in concrete; and solution-oriented conversations are being held at least twice a month at the Harlem Park West Community Association meetings.However, the association’s biggest challenge so far has been boosting morale among the residents–people who, by and large, are scratching to survive and have lost faith in authority figures like the government and the police. They are all too familiar with broken promises– one being the “miracle interstate” project that was supposed to connect I-70 to downtown, now known as “the highway to nowhere,” and most recently the Red Line project, canceled by Gov. Larry Hogan last year. These were projects that would have brought major redevelopment and restoration to Harlem Park and the surrounding communities, but instead the blight continues.“I know it sounds cliché, but the power really rests with the people. It always has and it always will,” board member Ronald Bailey, said. Bailey has been a community organizer for over 20 years and has strong ties to Harlem Park. His role on the HPW board is to organize resources through partnership development. “I know the potential this community has, I grew up here. And I refuse to lay down and play dead.”Ross and her team say they are no longer waiting for things to turn around. The goal this year is to engage residents in what has already been started, and build more momentum from there. Part of the work is empowering and educating the residents on how to make change in their community, one household at a time.“We just do,” Ross said. “We are teaching people to own their responsibility as citizens. We don’t need another piece of legislation or proposal to get out there and do what needs to be done.”One of the strongest partnerships HPW has is with A Step Forward (ASF), a community outreach organization that focuses on getting people off the streets by providing housing and support services for individuals who are homeless, reentering the community following incarceration, recovering from substance abuse or facing other life-altering challenges.“We work closely with the neighborhood association to try to utilize our resources to help assist in any way,” Lela Campbel, ASF’s founder and executive director, told the AFRO. “The clients we serve participate in trash pick up, assist with the door-to-door campaigns, and have a general commitment to this community.”Harlem Park West has also joined hands with BUILD (Baltimoreans United in Leadership Development), TRF Development Partners, the Sports Mentor’s Association, Roots and Branches Charter School and Kirby Lane Association.“Last year we set out to make positive change in Harlem Park West,” said Ross, “and it’s already happening.”last_img read more
