first_imgThe No. 2-ranked USC men’s water polo team got back in the winning column Saturday with two blowout wins over No. 11-ranked Princeton and Whittier in their home opener at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center.Making a splash · Senior driver Nikola Vavic recorded two hat tricks in the Trojans’ two victories this weekend. The Trojans started slow in their first game back since their loss to UCLA in the NorCal Tournament earlier this month, but recovered to finish off the Princeton Tigers 22-4 and the Whittier Poets 23-2 this weekend at the Uytengsu Aquatics Center. – Chris Roman | Daily TrojanThe doubleheader began with the Trojans netting a 22-4 win over a strong Princeton team and immediately following it up with a 23-2 rout of Whittier for the second time this season. With the pair of wins, USC (12-1) also extends its 30-game home winning streak.This comes just a week after crosstown rival UCLA snapped the Trojan’s 41-game winning streak in the championship game of the NorCal Tournament 9-8.USC started slow against Princeton, as both teams were scoreless in the first four minutes.The Trojans, however, would start their offensive outpour soon after beginning with a goal by senior two-meter Connor Virjee. With that goal, the team would take a 1-0 advantage, and there was no looking back from there as redshirt junior driver Zach Lucas put a goal in just 30 seconds later.The theme of the day for the Trojans was “spreading the love,” as eight different Trojans netted USC’s first eight goals and 13 different USC players scored on the day.The main emphasis of the day though, according to USC head coach Jovan Vavic, was not offense but defense.“We really wanted to focus on playing better defense, and I felt like we did a much better job with our half-pool defense,” Vavic said.Redshirt sophomore two-meter player Mac Carden came up big for the Trojans against Princeton. Carden had four goals on the day, but had great defensive intensity as well.“[Carden] had a lot of steals on defense today and was playing harder than anyone on our team, which was motivating us to raise our intensity,” senior utility player Mace Rapsey said.The Trojans were up on the Tigers 10-4 before a 12-goal offensive outburst that gave them the 22-4 win. Drivers Lucas, junior Kostas Genidounias, senior Nikola Vavic and Rapsey had hat tricks in the win, while senior two-meter Jeremy Davie and junior driver Marc Vonderweidt also had multigoal games with two each. Senior James Clark recorded double-digit saves in goal with 10.“We had a great scoring day on offense and it was nice to see so many people getting on the board,” Vonderweidt said.Following a short break, the team continued its scoring run against Whittier, blasting 11 straight goals into the back of the net to take a big early lead. The Poets would eventually get on the board late in the first half with a man-up goal by attacker Nicholas Beavers.Eleven different USC players would score against the Poets and a plethora of players would have multigoal games led by Genidounias, who had four. Vavic, redshirt junior Ivan Kustic and Carden also had hat tricks. Sophomore Aleck Ryner and redshirt junior Paul Mitre would relieve Clark in goal and netted eight saves in a combined effort.And though the elder Vavic was happy with his team’s performance on defense, he wasn’t very impressed with his team’s large scoring output, mainly because of the many goal-scoring opportunities that it didn’t capitalize on.“We basically missed 15 one or nobodies today, so we need to do a much better job finishing and be more focused in those situations,” coach Vavic said.USC will stay at home and jump into Mountain Pacific Sports Federation play next Saturday, Oct. 5 against UC Irvine. Game time is set for 1 p.m. Follow Darian on Twitter @dariannourian24last_img read more

first_imgThey acted in truly terrorist fashion—killed innocent people in cold blood, then ran away, too cowardly to face the consequences of their heinous crime.The brutal murder of 12 French journalists in Paris Wednesday by Islamic terrorists in the name of Allah is a sad commentary not only on religion, but also on the whole human race.  As American Secretary of State John Kerry has said, it is not a clash of civilizations, lest we indict all Muslims, but an act of people who reject civilization and even the sanctity of humanity as a species created by God Himself for good, not for evil.No, it would be wrong to blame all Islam for this horrific attack against the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.  For Moslem leaders from around the world, including the Arab League and the leaders of Malaysia and Indonesia, two highly populous Moslem nations, have joined in the condemnation of this terrible act.Our hope, in this connection, is that the  Moslem leaders in Liberia, too, would speak out and tell Liberians and the world where they stand on this horrible  crime against not only humanity but also against the media.  This is not the first time we have called on Liberia’s Moslem leaders to speak out against murderous atrocities inflicted on innocent people in the name of Islam.  We have done so on a number of occasions, including when Boko Haram abducted over 200 school girls at night from their dormitory in Nigeria.  Most of them are yet to be returned to their hapless and deeply distressed parents. There is an old dictum (truism) that says “Silence makes consent.”  We do not   believe that our Moslem leaders condone any of these things.  But they need to speak out and make their positions clear and avoid the perception that they are in accord with the terrible things that are being perpetrated in the name of Allah.We are in great sympathy with the French people and government and most particularly with our colleagues in the French media for what has happened.  Our hearts go out to their families.  We pray that God will give them comfort and peace and that the murderous perpetrators will be found and brought to justice.Even more so, we are greatly concerned about the implications of this tragedy for freedom of thought, of expression and press freedom.  Of course, this is not the first time that these freedoms have been seriously threatened.  Thousands of journalists, just like our French colleagues, have paid the supreme sacrifice for press freedom.  Yet media people continue to struggle on, doing the work we have been called to do regardless of the consequences.Even this special group of media folk, peculiarly gifted with the art of conceiving and producing brilliant cartoons and satirical masterpieces,   that make people think and laugh, are not exempt from persecution.  Our own Leslie Lumeh and Clarence L. Carter, pen-named David K. Goliath, are among this group and, like their French colleagues, sometimes make people, especially those in power, concerned or even angry at what they produce.Yet their gifts, like all talent, are God-given and they should not suffer or die in the portrayal of them.  But this has happened throughout the centuries.  Was Socrates, known as the father of philosophy and accused of misleading the youth, not given the hemlock to drink that took his life? Yet his legacy lives on, and so do the legacies of many others who used the talent God gave them to inspire, educate and redeem.  We speak of the likes of many of the prophets of Israel, Jesus, Martin Luther King, Nelson Mandela and the many journalists and writers in Africa and around the world who have perished in the practice of their professions.  Now joining that league are our fallen French colleagues.But as journalists, writers, artists and messengers of hope, we must continue the work that God has called us to do and never give up.  As Samora Marcel and all the other revolutionaries who broke the back of racist colonial oppression in Southern Africa used to say, “The struggle continues until final victory.”Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

first_imgThe Cowlitz Tribe started work on its event center this month, setting the stage for yet another attraction in northern Clark County.The center is expected to open in the spring. Its exterior was built with the rest of the Ilani Casino Resort, which opened in April. Now, crews are tasked with turning the cavernous space into a high-end hall, capable of seating 2,500 for concerts and conventions.“We are not ‘breaking ground’ in a traditional sense of excavating foundations. In an effort to minimize disruption to the site, we built the structural steel frame of the event center when we built the casino,” said Paul Tresnan of Mohegan Gaming & Entertainment, which jointly oversees the casino with the Cowlitz Tribe.Though it was originally slated to open in the fall, Tresnan said they waited to start working on the venue to “ensure our planning, programming and budget is aligned” with the rest of casino operations.Swinerton Builders, the San Francisco-based construction firm that built Ilani, is leading the project. It is designed by Las Vegas- and Newport Beach, Calif.-based Friedmutter Group.The venue is attached to the casino’s northeast corner.When the venue is complete, it will wrap up phase one of the original plans for the Ilani Casino Resort. After nearly two decades in development, it opened three months ago with 2,500 slot machines and 75 card tables, plus numerous restaurants and shops.In a couple of years, casino officials are expected to start phase two: a hotel.last_img read more
