first_imgNew Delhi: Maisnam Meiraba Luwang lived up to his top billing as he clinched the boys singles U-19 title at the Woncheon Yonex Korea Junior Open International Challenge 2019 in Miryang, Korea on Saturday. The top seed from Manipur needed just 36 minutes to brush aside the challenge of 15th seed Lee Hak Joo of Korea in a 21-10, 21-13 win.Also claiming the bronze in the same category at this Junior International Challenge badminton tournament was eighth seed Sathish Kumar Karunakaran, who had bowed out to Luwang 16-21, 22-24 in a gritty semi-final contest on Friday.Luwang, who currently holds the No. 9 spot in the World Junior Rankings, was impressive throughout the week and dropped just one game in six matches. This is the 16-year-old rising star’s third international title this year following his triumphs at the Russian Junior White Nights 2019 and India Junior International 2019.Luwang would especially be pleased with the way he rebounded after a disappointing exit from the World Junior Championships last month, where he crashed out in the Round of 64.

No. 24 Syracuse (7-4-3, 1-3-2 Atlantic Coast) tied with No. 21 North Carolina State (8-4-3, 2-3-2) on Saturday night in Raleigh, North Carolina.“I thought our guys were terrific, SU head coach Ian McIntyre said. “I thought we did enough to get three points tonight. We didn’t take that chance to score that second goal tonight and we were punished later on.”Syracuse outshot NC State, 19 to 12, and led for the majority of the match. But a late goal by Brad Sweeney equalized the game with 24 seconds left. The strike came off a free kick, adding to SU’s inability to defend set-pieces in critical moments. Earlier this season, SU lost to Notre Dame on Sept. 7 after conceding three set-piece scores.Other than Sweeney’s goal, the Orange utilized physicality on the road. It recorded 19 fouls with Hugo Delhommelle earning SU’s lone yellow card.Sondre Norheim provided SU’s offense when he headed a ball off a Delhommelle corner kick in the fifth minute. The sophomore defender scored his third goal in his last two matchups, bringing his point total to eight. Delhommelle tallied his fourth assist of the season.AdvertisementThis is placeholder text“(Norheim’s) scored a couple of very important goals,” McIntyre said. “This was a good one. To score on restarts you need a good service and that’s what we got from (Delhommelle).”SU outshot the Wolfpack eight to one in the opening half, but couldn’t create the separation it’s banked on in past games. Syracuse was on a five-game streak of scoring multiple goals which was capped off with a seven-goal outburst against St. Bonaventure on Oct. 16. Yet, NC State’s defense, which entered the contest allowing less than a goal a game, stymied the Orange forwards.The squads traded chances in the second half and neither team found twine before Sweeney executed on a free kick from 19-yards away.“It would’ve been very easy for our guys to feel sorry for ourselves and let that carry over into overtime,” McIntyre said. “I thought our guys bounced back.”Both goalies were called upon in overtime. NC State’s Leon Krapf recorded two of his six saves in the extra periods and Hendrik Hilpert stopped a shot by AJ Seals for his fifth and final save of the night.Syracuse senior Jan Breitenmoser had a chance to win the match with two seconds left but his strike sailed high, confirming the draw.The Orange’s unbeaten streak lengthened to six games with the decision. SU travels to Clemson (5-7-1, 0-6-0) on Tuesday, Oct. 23, in a makeup game that was rescheduled due to Hurricane Florence. Commentslast_img read more
