ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr My 15 ½ year old son, Joe, has started cutting the grass more regularly. The key part of the sentence is 15 ½ year old because that means he’s not too far away from getting a driver’s license. And that means he’s thinking about a car which means he’s thinking about where he’s gonna get money from to pay for gas. And he’s wondering how much of the car he’s going to have to pay for if he gets his own set of wheels.I’ve told him he can drive the 8 year old mini van all he wants but he’s not overly excited about that. Maybe it’s because I’ve also told him I was going to paint “Mom’s Taxi” in big pink letters on the side of the van. So we’ve been negotiating the price per lawn cut, and he wants me to teach him how to use the electric edger so he can get a few more dollars per week.Ten years or so from now, it might be a different conversation. It might be about how mom & dad are going to help with buying his first home. The mortgage lender LoanDepot recently completed a study and released a report that identifies a growing trend of parents helping their children purchase their first home.What does this mean for Credit Unions wanting to be memberlicious? continue reading »
When Caitlin Roach scored her second goal of the season on a power play against Union on Oct. 26, it gave Syracuse a 2-0 lead en route to a comfortable 5-2 win at Tennity Ice Pavilion.Had it not been for the series of events that occurred afterward, the goal might have easily been forgotten.Ten minutes later, on the next Union penalty, Margot Scharfe connected. Seconds later it was Nicole Ferrara who put one in the back of the net on the power play. Melissa Piacentini connected on the last power-play opportunity to top off the scoring in the third.Five Dutchwomen penalties led to four Syracuse goals. It was tied for the most power-play goals in a game in program history.“You can’t rely on your power play every night like that, and certainly in past years it’s been anemic,” Syracuse head coach Paul Flanagan said. “It’s nice to see them getting goals, and I think a lot if it is nothing too extravagant. It’s really just getting pucks on net.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThat game against Union may have been an anomaly, but the Orange has taken care of business on the power play front all season. It has converted on 18.2 percent of its opportunities. That number is a vast improvement from the 12.7 percent last season, and SU will look to continue that trend Tuesday against Cornell at 7 p.m. at OnCenter Complex.“Our power plays have been working,” sophomore Nicole Renault said. “We work on them all the time in practice. I think with time they’ll get better.”With 16 power-play goals on the season, the Orange is just five from last season’s total of 21. Aside from 19.5 conversion percentage in 2009-10, this season is shaping up to the best season in terms of power plays ever for the Orange.And everyone has gotten in on the action.The 16 goals have been split up among 10 different SU players. Jessica Sibley, who leads the team in goals with six, has scored a team-high three goals on the power play.Syracuse has connected on at least one power play during 12 of its first 13 games on the season, including eight during a five-game winning streak that spanned Oct. 19 to Nov. 10.Even with the ability to convert on opponents’ penalties, Scharfe, whose 10 career power-play goals are the most of anyone on the team, said there was still room for improvement in the area.“Just getting bodies in front and capitalizing on the rebounds is something we need to work on,” Scharfe said.Flanagan doesn’t shy away from discussing the importance of scoring on the power play, noting that one or two plays can change the outcome of a game.“A lot of games in our sport are so close,” Flanagan said, “2-1, 3-2, and the special teams, on the one end if you kill the penalties, you’re going to have a lot of success.“But you’ve got to be able to execute on the power play.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+ Published on December 3, 2013 at 12:34 am Contact Sam: [email protected] | @SamBlum3
