Women’s hockey: No. 1 Badgers suffer first loss of season to Minnesota-Duluth

first_imgThe University of Wisconsin women’s hockey team experienced their first loss this weekend against the University of Minnesota-Duluth — a dismal start to the weekend.Wisconsin (12-1-1-0, 10-1-1-0 WCHA) ended an eight-game winning streak Friday night against the Bulldogs (8-3-3, 7-3-2 WCHA), who defeated the Badgers 4-1. The match highlighted key areas that the Badgers need to fix in their play, especially with their special teams.Friday began what was an especially challenging weekend for one Badger, Nikki Cece. Cece, a freshman goaltender, took the spot of Wisconsin’s usual netminder, Ann-Renée Desbiens, this weekend, against the No. 3 ranked Bulldogs.Women’s hockey: No. 1 Badgers face toughest test to-date with No. 3 Minnesota-DuluthAfter a much-needed weekend off to relax and recover from an intense month of competition, the University of Wisconsin women’s Read…Even though they fell to a challenging team Friday night, Wisconsin head coach Mark Johnson knows that the challenge of having a freshman in net and realizes that mistakes will be made early on. Johnson told UW Athletics that this loss did not mean that the team was performing poorly, but that they needed to make sure that some minor issues were fine-tuned as soon as possible.“Overall, we didn’t play poorly,” Johnson said. “We’ve just got to figure out how to get the puck to the net Saturday. That’s the big thing because the first period was good as we had a lot of scoring opportunities and their goaltender met the challenge. We had almost 50 shots in the game and had one crazy deflection go in for us, but we need more of that.”Once Cece and the rest of the Badger team got their footing Saturday night, they began to resemble the same team fans saw two weeks prior. More shots were successfully finding the back of the net and Wisconsin’s top line was proving to be a dominant force.One of the primary keys to the top line’s success was junior Annie Pankowski, who managed to record a natural hat trick Saturday. Pankowski, who had yet to previously score a single goal this season before this weekend’s contest, helped the Badgers shut the Bulldogs out Saturday night. This natural hat trick would be the first in Wisconsin history since Brooke Ammerman’s in 2012.With Pankowski and the rest of her linemates leading the way, and Cece now feeling more confident in her goaltending abilities, the Badgers reciprocated the Bulldogs’ Friday night performance, ending the game with a 4-1 victory.The Badgers come home Friday and Saturday to face Clarkson University. Fans should note that Saturday’s game has been changed to 8 p.m. to accommodate the Wisconsin football game at 2:30 p.m.last_img read more

Magellan predicts early May end for Italy’s COVID-19 cases

first_img Submit Stanleybet Group’s Magellan Robotech B2B division targets international growth August 1, 2019 Domenico Vacchiano joins Magellan Robotech April 14, 2020 StumbleUpon Related Articles Share Share Richest ever speaker line-up makes Betting on Sports the must-attend gambling industry event September 6, 2019 The zero contagion point for COVID-19 in Italy should arrive at the beginning of May, according to a study commissioned by Magellan Robotech – a subsidiary of Stanleybet Group – to analyse the likely trends of the virus.Details of the study, which has been carried out by the Robotics Division of the Liverpool Group, were released to all Stanleybet affiliates earlier this week.It comes as Stanleybet has been forced to close the doors of its European retail estate in line with government advice, resulting in all operations shifting online.By constructing a mathematical model, the robotics division has analysed data from the Civil Protection and Health Authorities of several countries and the World Health Organisation. The data primarily looked at the spread of the virus across the world, and attempted to create a predictive model.The study predominantly focused upon the eight key jurisdictions that Stanleybet operates in: England, Denmark, Belgium, Romania, Croatia, Malta, Cyprus and Italy – one of the hardest hit countries in the world.According to the Magellan model, the peak of the virus in Italy was reached on 27 March after which the number of infected individuals is expected to decrease. Data suggests that the number of new contagions in Italy could ‘reach zero level at any time between 3 and 11 May’.Dr Garrisi, the Stanleybet CEO and creator of the Magellan mathematical model, issued a warning to tamper some of the study’s optimism. Through a phone interview from Malta, he said: “I am confident that the predictions developed by us will prove substantially correct. However, there is a risk. In fact, our model shows that the contagion trend in the coming days should collapse exponentially.“In other words, we will see the number of new infected individuals decrease by the day with astonishing speed, but the curve will thereafter slow down and tend to become flat with an enervating “swing behaviour” equally changing by the day, to reach the zero contagion point at the beginning of May. It is, therefore, to be expected that in the coming days between 7 and 15 April a mood of euphoria will prevail, as if the problem was eventually overcome.“Mind you, this is not the case. A relaxation of the strictest compliance with the prescriptions of the authorities could result in a fresh uptake of the pandemic instead. All of us must absolutely stay at home, not only until the day when the absence of new contagions is declared, but safely well beyond that point in time.“Provided all of us remain compliant and strict in observing the prescriptions of the authorities, the gambling sector may start to think of a re-opening of physical operations within the end of May.”last_img read more
