Ladouceur bounces back, has big game against Rutgers

first_img Published on March 28, 2010 at 12:00 pm Last Wednesday No. 7 Syracuse was embarrassed by No. 11 Dartmouth on its home field. What was just as surprising was the fact that Ladouceur, the nation’s leader in scoring average with 5.6 points per game, was limited to just one point.Four days later, it seems as if all is back to normal. For both SU and Ladouceur. Syracuse’s (5-3, 1-0 Big East) offense was stellar in a 17-10 victory against Rutgers (6-3, 0-2) Sunday as Ladouceur steered the offense all game.The junior attack had six points on the day, scoring five goals and adding an assist. With SU in desperate need of a win following two consecutive losses, Ladouceur was at the forefront of a balanced offensive attack right from the start. All of her points came in the first half, the highlight of which was a free-position goal with 55 seconds remaining. The goal gave the Orange a commanding 12-4 cushion.‘She really stepped up,’ senior attack Jackie DePetris said. ‘Not only was she scoring, but she was helping everyone else score. We all trust her with the ball, and we all trust her when she’s behind. She’s a leader on attack — she tells us what play we’re running or what we’re doing or where we have to go.’Ladouceur is primarily known for her field vision and her tremendous passing ability. At the start of last week, Ladouceur was first in the nation in assists, assists per game and points per game. Though she is a fairly consistent goal-scorer, many of her points come from her knack for finding teammates in prime positions.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textBut Sunday, she demonstrated why she is one of the most dangerous offensive players in the nation. Aside from a picture-perfect dish to senior midfielder Christina Dove that led to a goal, Ladouceur completely took over the game in certain stretches. She owned the first half.Over a four-minute span, Ladouceur scored three goals, one of which was heaved 75 yards by goalkeeper Liz Hogan. Hogan fired the ball down the field and Ladouceur scooped it up as she blazed toward the goal and whipped it into the net.‘Tee gets most of her points from assists, but this year it’s kind of been 50-50,’ senior midfielder Halley Quillinan said. ‘In our big games she’s been our big goal-scorer a lot of the times. I think that she sees the field very well and is a smart attacker. And today it just shows that she can dish out the ball and she can dish it in the goal. She’s one of the best players I’ve ever played with.’In addition to padding her stat sheet, Ladouceur’s presence both on the field and on the sidelines seems to motivate her teammates. And maybe more importantly, her knowledge of the team’s offense helps SU get properly situated. Because head coach Gary Gait isn’t out on the field with his team, there is only so much he can do once the whistle blows.And that is why it is critical for him to have a player like Ladouceur — someone who can communicate with the team on the field and organize the offensive attack.Though heading into the season many considered her less dangerous than the likes of Dove and Quillinan, her importance to this team was in full display at the Carrier Dome Sunday.‘Ladouceur has not only stepped up on the field, but also settles the offense and makes sure that we know what plays we’re running,’ Gait said. ‘She takes on the role as a leader and a quarterback from behind the cage, and we’ll look for her to continue that.’ HYPERLINK ‘[email protected][email protected] Facebook Twitter Google+center_img Commentslast_img read more


first_imgSPECIAL INVESTIGATION: A prostitute who was part of a group of women given €1,200 by a judge to leave Ireland is back offering her services in Co Donegal, we can reveal.Prostitute Mikeala Niculae, 37 who has returned to Ireland after a Letterkenny court paid for her return home. (North West Newspix)Mikaela Niculae, 37, appeared at a special sitting of Letterkenny District Court in June.She was one of six people who appeared in court in connection with a prostitution ring which was busted by Gardai. Judge Paul Kelly gave four of the prostitutes €1,200 from €5,890 in cash which was seized in the raids on brothels at Riverside Apartments in Letterkenny.Judge Kelly sent the women packing telling their lawyer – “They’re getting a very good deal.”But a Donegal Daily investigation has found that Niculae has been back in Letterkenny for almost two weeks working as a prostitute at an address at Lower Main Street.The cheeky prostitute was one of six people arrested during undercover Gada investigation back in June. The women were sending money back to their countries to support their families, solicitor Patsy Gallagher said.“The fact that €15,000 would build a lovely home back in Romania, a very poor part of the country where they come from, speaks for itself,” said Mr Gallagher.He revealed that with the arrival of the Donegal International Rally into Letterkenny that weekend, they were hoping to be kept very busy.“Of course the weekend that is in it they were hoping to have a bumper weekend with the rally coming up but they are hoping to get out of town as quickly as possible.”But Gardai argued that the women had been overheard saying they planned to return to prostitution. A total of three different apartments in the same complex were raided as part of the planned Garda operation.When they raided the apartments they found a woman in a state of undress and a man in one of the apartments.Another of the prostitutes was hiding in a wardrobe.Detective Sergeant Mick Carroll said all four women had taken out adverts for sexual services on the Escort Ireland website and three phones used on these adverts were seized. He said the women had been in Ireland for a number of months working as prostitutes.After considering the case Judge Kelly ordered the women to return to their country of origin telling the women’s solicitors “They are getting a very good deal.”But just weeks after leaving the country, Mikaela Niculae is back operating from an apartment in Letterkenny.She is again advertising her services in online contacts website Escort Ireland saying which will be in Letterkenny until October 22nd next.At least ten other women are also advertising their services in the contacts website in the Letterkenny area.She has also been observed at the Lower Main Street area of the town.Niculae is offering a wide range of sexual services and even uses the same name and pictures of herself.A Garda spokesman said they are now investigating the situation.“This matter will be looked into as part of the information we have received. We cannot comment any further at this stage,” said the spokesman.PROSTITUTE GIVEN €1,200 BY JUDGE TO FLY HOME IS BACK WORKING IN DONEGAL was last modified: October 20th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:brothelsdonegalEscort Irelandletterkennyprostitutionlast_img read more
