And while Pannell exploded in the game’s opening moments, he was silenced for the final 54 minutes. Meanwhile, Marasco dodged and dished all over the Big Red defense. Cornell couldn’t contain the Orange’s top midfield line, led by Marasco, and with SU’s No. 22 paving the way, No. 7 Syracuse came back from 4-0 down to upset the Big Red.“JoJo Marasco’s a heck of a player,” CU head coach Ben DeLuca said.After the Big Red held Syracuse scoreless for the first six minutes of the game, Marasco streaked onto the field down the right wing. It was one of his first chances to stretch his legs all game.“We believe in our defense, though,” Marasco said of the scoreless opening. “They get us the ball a lot and it shows when we get the ball. We’ve been taking such good shots this year we were normally scoring with every possession.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMarasco settled the Orange into just its second set offense of the game, dodging from the point down the right hash marks where he hit Loy in stride to set up SU’s first goal of the game with 8:20 left in the first quarter. The game no longer belonged to Pannell.Defender Brian Megill silenced the Cornell playmaker for the rest of the game.

After the game, the midfield orchestrator was the butt of celebratory joking from his teammates.“So nice of you to join us,” Megill said to Marasco as the midfielder rushed into the postgame press conference. Marasco pointed to the chair he was trying to sit in, sandwiched tightly between Megill and coach Desko.“Take your time, take your time,” goalie Dominic Lamolinara piled on.It was just what he did all game, and it gave his teammates a reason to joke afterward, pleased with their monumental victory.

I can recognize a confession when I see one,” Harris said, laughing along with the crowd.Harris accused Trump of taking the word of authoritarian leaders in Russia, North Korea and Saudi Arabia rather than the professionals the U.S. intelligence community.“Sold out our country and our nation’s security,” Harris said.Harris’ appearance in Ames is part of her retooled campaign effort in Iowa.last_img read more

Suddie Public Hospital out of insulin, syringe supplies

first_imgScores of diabetic patients in Region Two (Pomeroon-Supenaam) have been complaining of having to incur additional expenses to purchase insulin medication and also the syringes for them to receive their treatment at the Suddie Public Hospital.The State-run medical facility is without insulin injections and syringes since late January, and although requests were made for additional supplies, there still remains a shortage.According to patients, they are given prescriptions to purchase the insulin and syringes and to return to have doctors administer same.This is causing great inconvenience, as many patients cannot afford to purchase the medication.Recently, several persons were admitted to the Hospital for hypertension and there is very little that medical practitioners can do. Pensioners are predominately affected, since they cannot afford to purchase the medication needed.“It seem as if we have to reserve to alternative measures of eating cucumber to lower we pressure, I have been never out of tablets or injections… it’s frustrating, I cannot afford this, my pension has to maintain me and I can’t ask my children,” a poor pensioner from Marias Lodge related.Residents are therefore calling on Public Health Minister, Dr George Norton to immediately intervene, since the situation had become extremely burdensome.Guyana Times was also made to understand that the Hospital is in need of additional medical supplies. A visit to the Suddie Public Hospital Pharmacy on Thursday revealed that essential medications are in short supply.last_img read more
