At stumps Leon Johnson is on 11 while Bhaskar Yadram is yet to score.It was a sensational post-lunch spell by Permaul, who captured 6-29 in just 19.5 overs, as the visitors batting crumbled in dramatic fashion after being 76-4 at one stage.Guyanese Assad Fudadin, who opted to play for the Scorpions after refusing a local contract was the top-scorer with 39, and Captain Paul Palmer contributed 31, but the rest of their batsmen couldn’t muster much between them.Veerasammy Permaul six-wicket haul put the Guyana Jaguars in total control after day two. (Adrian Narine photo)However, when play resumed yesterday, the Jaguars’ remaining batsmen managed to survive six overs where they added just eight runs to their overnight total of 258-8.Pacer Derval Green, who finished with figures of 4-63, claimed the final two wickets of overnight batsman, Permaul (3), and Gudakesh Motie, who went without scoring. The other overnight batsman Romario Shepherd was unbeaten on 22.The strong start the Scorpions expected from their openers, however, did not materialise after both Shepherd and Keemo Paul found a good length and steady consistency which eventually left the visitors gasping for breath, at 19-3.Garth Garvey (0), fell LBW to Shepherd off the fourth ball in the innings, while Trevon Griffith (5) went in similar fashion to Paul, at the end of the fourth over.Fudadin was given a reprieve on two, when wicket-keeper Anthony Bramble could not hold on to a difficult chance off Shepherd, but Paul further complicated the tourists’ crisis when he had Brandon King caught at cover for ten.Fudadin and fellow left-hander Paul Palmer, both survived until lunch, with the visitors 37-3.Upon resumption, the pair gave the Scorpions a brief glimmer of hope with a fourth-wicket stand of 57 before the hosts’ left-arm spinners polished off the last seven wickets. Motie complemented Permaul, with figures of 1-7 off nine overs.But despite the Jamaicans falling 18 runs short of avoiding the follow-on target of 116, skipper Leon Johnson decided not to enforce it and batted again.The Jaguars’ openers Tagenarine Chanderpaul and Test discard Rajendra Chandrika batted determinedly and were focused on occupying the crease upfront, but as the final session progressed, the pair gradually began to open up, calmly, without taking any undue risks.But after hitting five fours and a six in his 41-ball knock, Chandrika, the West Indies reject was finally dismissed when he was caught behind off left-arm wrist spinner Dennis Bulli (2-32), for 35.Chanderpaul Hemraj joined Chanderpaul, and the left-handed pair took the score to 85 before the Jamaicans enjoyed further success just before the close.Chanderpaul after occupying the crease for 76 minutes, facing 74 balls with three boundaries, was trapped LBW to spinner, Fabian Allen (1-4), while Hemraj was bowled by Damani Sewell (1-35), for 17.Motie, who was promoted up the order to perform the night watchman duty was dismissed off the last ball in the penultimate over, caught at the wicket off Bulli for nine. However, Yadram joined Johnson and negotiated the final over of play.SCOREBOARDGuyana Jaguars 1st innings (Overnight 258-8)T Chanderpaul c Palmer b Bulli 14R Chandrika c wk Morrison b Green 25C Hemraj c Garvey B Sewell 60L Johnson b Sewell 20B Yadram b Bulli 0A Bramble c Fudadin b Dawes 62K Paul c wk Morrison b Green 12S Rutherford b Sewell 45R Shepherd not out not 22V Permaul c wk Morrison b Green 3G Motie c Garvey b Green 0Extras: (w-1, b-1, nb-1) 3Total: (all out; 96 overs) 266Fall of Wickets: 1-38, 2-51, 3-96, 4-101, 5-132, 6-150, 7-233, 8-251, 9-266, 10-266Bowlers: Dawes 16-8-37-1, Green 21-2-63-4, Sewell 28-9-69-3, Bulli 18.4-2-52-2, Allen 12-0-41-0, Fudadin 0.2-0-3-0last_img read more

Graham: We knew Syracuse’s offensive line was unfinished, but it has to be better

first_imgThe word “overwhelming” probably best characterizes Clemson’s constant presence in the Syracuse backfield Saturday night.On nearly every snap, one or more of Clemson’s linemen and blitzers harassed quarterback Tommy DeVito, making him duck, dodge and flee the pocket. It’s not shocking that Clemson’s yet-again loaded defensive front had its way with Syracuse’s banged-up and inexperienced offensive line. But the eight sacks and six hits on DeVito, plus seven additional tackles for loss clarified the Orange’s most pressing issue: fixing the offensive line.Syracuse’s offensive line is not the sole culprit for its loss to No. 1 Clemson. But ignoring the truth — that SU’s offensive line is not what it needs to be for the Orange to achieve its goals — doesn’t change it. There’s every reason to believe this group, which hopes to bring back injured center Sam Heckel soon, can improve. Through three games, the Orange’s offensive line has surrendered 14 sacks on DeVito and struggled to establish the run game.“You’ve gotta have the mind of a corner in this game,” left guard Evan Adams said after the loss. “Every bad experience, you can’t dwell on it. You’ve gotta wipe it at some point and move on to the next experience. You can’t dwell on things that are unfixable.”AdvertisementThis is placeholder textMax Freund | Staff PhotographerIn the opening minutes of Syracuse’s 2019 season, Liberty’s defensive front appeared to be as dominant as Clemson. But four players, redshirt freshman right tackle Carlos Vettorello; redshirt sophomore guard Dakota Davis; redshirt junior left tackle Airon Servais and Heckel, were all starting for the first time at new positions. Soon, they settled in, but still allowed two sacks.Against Maryland, without Heckel, their performance was steadier, and DeVito faced less pressure. But with graduate transfer Ryan Alexander making his first start opposite Vettorello, it wasn’t a particularly strong performance. Still, the sack total grew by four, SU rushed for 70 yards as a team and still seemed to be a few steps away from the consistency of 2018’s group.Clemson overmatched the Orange upfront. Syracuse went for power runs up the middle twice from the Tigers’ three-yard line and the line couldn’t move them an inch. Tigers defensive coordinator Brent Venables dialed up a myriad of blitzes to great effect. Seven Clemson players contributed to their eight sacks.“I feel like this is going to be a great growing experience because they threw so many things out there,” Adams said. “It’s definitely going to be exciting to watch film and see where we can improve.”It was the sort of night that forces you to examine why you couldn’t keep your quarterback upright in the pocket long enough to throw downfield. And after the game, Babers was quick to note that at least two of Syracuse’s sacks weren’t the fault of the offensive line, without divulging who missed an assignment.“So again, it’s not a simple offense. It’s a complex offense,” Babers said. “And everybody has to do their part. It only takes one guy to break offensively for something bad to happen.”Eva Suppa | Digital Design EditorSyracuse had fielded one of its better offensive lines in recent memory in 2018. Despite giving up 37 sacks, the Orange posted a 40.2 point per game scoring average behind the offensive line.Having four players starting at new positions this season, it was known that the offensive line was going to be a work in progress and Syracuse, Babers said, is “only as fast as its slowest offensive lineman.”“It comes down to learning a lot of offense,” Babers said at his Aug. 26 press conference. “Learning it and practicing it at the tempo you need to practice.”And, as Babers noted postgame, a sack isn’t necessarily the offensive line’s fault. Syracuse runs a complex offense — it’s a point that’s been preached early this season — and one missed assignment can unravel an entire play. Who a lineman is supposed to block is contingent on a number of factors: play call, defensive front, and any checks or audibles at the line of scrimmage.There’s reason to believe the offensive line can improve. Heckel should come back soon, moving Servais back to left tackle and putting Alexander and Vettorello in a competition for the right tackle spot. As Syracuse establishes its clear five starters and they play more snaps together, these issues will begin to fade.There are nine games left in Syracuse’s season and Babers pointed out that this team can still get to where it wants to be at the end of the season. If it wants to even get close, Syracuse’s offensive line really needs to improve.Andrew Graham is a senior staff writer for The Daily Orange where his column appears occasionally.
