Women’s Soccer Defeats Indiana State, 1-0, for Third-Straight Win

first_img Full Schedule Roster Drake’s control allowed it to open up many goal-scoring opportunities, but the Bulldogs couldn’t find the elusive goal until late. Valparaiso 10/26/2019 – 4 PM URBANDALE, Iowa – Abby Stephenson’s first goal of the season lifted the Drake women’s soccer team to a 1-0 victory over Indiana State on Sunday afternoon. The Bulldogs have now won three games in a row and hold a three-game shutout streak. The Bulldogs dominated 63 percent of the possession and earned a 20-6 advantage in shot attempts. Their 20 shots tied a season high. The Bulldogs kept their foot on the pedal and broke through with Stephenson’s goal just minutes later. Erika Townley was key in the attack. She applied constant pressure on the flanks and in the box as she battled for position and won contested balls. Townley’s aggression paid off in the 58th minute when she drew a foul in the box and earned a penalty kick for the Bulldogs. Next Game: Following a mad scramble in the box, Stephenson gained control and fired a shot into the lower-left corner to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead in the 63rd minute. “We were incredibly unlucky not to open up a bigger lead earlier on,” Horner said. “But we showed our resilience to manage the game out.”center_img The Bulldogs return to action on Saturday, Oct. 26 by hosting Senior Night against Valparaiso. Kickoff is scheduled for 4 p.m. at Urbandale High School. However Vanessa Kavan’s ensuing attempt bounced off the top-left portion of the crossbar and out of bounds. “I’m really pleased for Abby to get her goal as she’s been very close on multiple corners,” Horner said. “And Erika Townley was the spark that inspired us to victory.” Live Stats “I felt our performance today was another example of the team executing the gameplan very well,” said Drake head coach Lindsey Horner. “We carried the game for long periods and the timing of our attacking movements were fantastic.” Preview Drake’s defense provided its best effort of the year by limiting Indiana State to season lows in shots (six) and shots on target (three). Goalkeeper Kelsie Stone recorded three saves en route to her fourth clean sheet of the season, a number good for second in the Missouri Valley Conference. “We look forward to recovering from this stretch of games as we prepare for Valparaiso next week,” Horner said. Print Friendly Versionlast_img read more

After Effects Video Tutorial: Looping Expression

first_imgLooping animations in After Effects is incredibly easy with the loopOut expression.If you’ve ever had to create a repetitive movement in After Effects than you’ve probably gone through the painstaking process of copying and pasting keyframes so that they line up perfectly. This technique works but it certainly isn’t ideal. As with most techniques in After Effects, loops can be created much easier using a simple expression: loopOut()The loopOut() expression works by taking all of the keyframes in your currently selected layer and creating an automatic loop. Once the last keyframe is played the animation will automatically begin again. In short, your keyframes will loop forever.With the loopOut() expression you also have the option to use two modifiers: cycle and pingpong. Cycle is the loopOut() expression’s default. It simply loops the keyframes indefinitely. The pingpong modifier on the other hand will play the loop then backtrack to the beginning of the loop and on and on it goes. You can use the pingpong modifier by using loopOut(‘pingpong’) instead of loopOut().Cycle:loopOut()Ping-Pong:loopOut(“pingpong”)In the following video tutorial by RiverCityGraphix you’ll learn how to use the loopOut() expression in After Effects. It is a very easy concept to understand and once you get it down you’ll likely find yourself using it all the time.This video was created and shared by RiverCityGraphix on their YouTube channel. Thanks for sharing guys!Have any tips for using the loopOut() expression?Share in the comments below.last_img read more

Honda restructures its Formula One operations

first_imgHonda has restructured its under-performing Formula One operations after the split from McLaren, with Yusuke Hasegawa to stand down as head of the Japanese company’s F1 project at the end of the year.Honda, starting a new partnership with Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso from January, said in a statement on Thursday that Hasegawa’s position would be split into two separate functions.Toyoharu Tanabe, an experienced Formula One veteran who worked as race engineer to Austrian Gerhard Berger at McLaren in the early 1990s, had been appointed as F1 technical director.Tanabe, who was also chief engineer to Britain’s Jenson Button at BAR and Honda Racing between 2003 and 2007, will run operations at the racetrack and in testing.An operating officer, yet to be named, will take charge of research and development at Sakura in Japan while Hasegawa remains executive chief engineer.”By separating these areas of responsibility, we will evolve our structure so that both the development team and racing/testing team can assume their respective responsibilities more speedily,” said Honda’s brand and communications head Katsuhide Moriyama.Honda and McLaren split after the 2017 season that ended last month, bringing down the curtain on three painful years that saw the former world champions suffer their worst ever slump.McLaren, who had a dominant partnership with Honda in the late 1980s and early 1990s, last won a race in 2012 and this year finished ninth of the 10 teams with just 30 points — 638 fewer than champions Mercedes.Their time together was beset with poor reliability and a lack of performance from a Honda engine struggling to compete with rivals.advertisementMcLaren, who have Spain’s double world champion Fernando Alonso along with Belgian Stoffel Vandoorne as their drivers, will have Renault power next season. Toro Rosso have New Zealander Brendon Hartley and France’s Pierre Gasly.last_img read more
