first_imgThe Vermont Agency of Transportation (VTrans) on Saturday, November 19, will close a section of Route 125 in Hancock so that a culvert damaged by Tropical Storm Irene can be replaced. The closure, which will take place along                    Route 125 about two miles west of its intersection with Route 100, will render the road impassible for two days. Work crews will close Route 125 at sunup on Saturday, November 19, and plan to reopen the road sometime on Monday, November 21. ‘There is no doubt that this closure will inconvenience some travelers,’ said VTrans Secretary Brian Searles. ‘Fortunately, most of the work can be done quickly and over the weekend to minimize impacts on people’s commute to work.’ Shortly after Irene destroyed a culvert in this location, state crews installed a temporary pipe adjacent to the old one. While this temporary culvert allowed the road to remain open, it is undersized for the location, and a larger, permanent structure needs to be installed. The new culvert will be made of concrete, and will have a larger opening than the original. The larger culvert will allow greater volumes of water to flow underneath the road, and help prevent similar storm damage from occurring in the future. While Route 125 will reopen on Monday, November 21, work will not be completed at that time. Motorists should expect traffic to be constricted to one lane at this location for several more days as crews finish repairs. Irene struck on August 28, 2011 and severely damaged more than 500 miles of state highway, including some 200 state bridges. Today, only 2 bridge locations remains closed, and all but nine miles of state roadway are open to public travel. Questions regarding storm-damaged roads and bridges related to Tropical Storm Irene can be answered by calling VTrans’ Irene Storm Center at 1-800-Vermont.

Syracuse’s Kailah Kempney and Marquette’s Katie Bathon were in position, prepared for the ball to be placed between their sticks.But with the chemistry that exists between Kempney and her teammates surrounding the circle, the official might as well have put the ball right in the pocket of Kempney’s stick.“Especially since last year, we got more comfortable with people around the circle and we just read each other well,” Kempney said. “We know if one girl is positioned somewhere, we should put the ball (in) a different place. We just really know what each other’s thinking.”Kempney and the Orange (12-3, 6-0 Big East) dominated the faceoff circle in No. 5 Syracuse’s 18-6 rout of the Golden Eagles (2-14) on Senior Day in the Carrier Dome on Sunday. Sophomore Kempney notched all six of her draw controls in the first half and four in the opening nine minutes to allow SU ample opportunities to pile on goals early.As the Orange cruised to a sizable lead, other SU midfielders replaced Kempney at the circle and maintained her success. Kirkland Locey recorded five draw controls. Syracuse finished the game with a 19-7 advantage in faceoffs.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“Kailah, Kirk, Tori (Praino) all crushed it at the point and then everybody who came onto the circle stepped up for sure,” said midfielder Bridget Daley.From the first whistle, Kempney had a beat on Bathon. Kempney secured the first possession of the game, leading to a Daley goal to put the Orange ahead.Kempney proceeded to grab three of the next four draw controls. Two of those possessions immediately led to scores, as Syracuse quickly took advantage of Marquette’s defensive breakdowns.When Kempney wasn’t seizing possessions, her teammates were in the right spots. Mallory Vehar and Brenna Rainone each picked up a draw control that Kempney lined up for, and both of those possessions paid off directly in goals.By the 16:22 mark, Syracuse had built a double-digit lead and the Golden Eagles had yet to even fire a shot.“It’s always nice when you have the ball,” said SU head coach Gary Gait. “When you have those extra possessions, it just gives you scoring opportunities. Kailah did a great job.”After a goal by Kenzie Brown — MU’s first attempted shot of the game — put Marquette on the board with 12:47 left, Syracuse didn’t lose a faceoff for the rest of the half. Kempney and Locey each logged two more draw controls.With Syracuse ahead 11-1 with less than 10 minutes remaining in the half, Kempney secured the faceoff. On the same possession, Ella Thorpe drew a foul inside the arc for a free-position opportunity, which she dished off to Kempney for an easy score.By the break, SU’s lead ballooned to 13-1 behind a 12-3 draw-control advantage.“Over the games so far this season, we’ve just done really well at communicating, even without the signal,” Kempney said. “We just know where each other is going to be.”Faceoffs have been one of the Orange’s many strengths this season, as SU has only lost the faceoff battle in three of its 15 games so far this season. The Orange is first in the Big East with more than 15 draw controls per game.With difficult conference matchups at Loyola (Md.) and Georgetown — two of the Big East’s top four teams — next weekend, Gait hopes the faceoff battle is one the Orange continues to dominate.“That’s the focus we need,” Gait said, “and as we start to get ready, we got two tough games, we’ll continue to look for those great draw controls and those great starts.” Comments Facebook Twitter Google+last_img read more
