first_imgFollowing Saturday’s game, Drake will stay at home as Indiana State visits Cownie on Oct. 6. First kick with the Sycamores is set for 7 p.m. and the game will be broadcast on The Valley on ESPN3. Print Friendly Version Drake is 7-3-1 overall and improved its record in overtime contests to 3-0-1 this season after its double-overtime road win at Western Illinois on Sept 24. The Bulldogs have won four-straight matches and are 6-1-1 in their past eight game contests with the lone loss during that span to No. 9 Wisconsin. The Western Illinois match was the final non-conference match for Drake. The Bulldogs, who were picked to finish second in the preseason MVC Coaches’ poll, will play seven consecutive matches against MVC opponents. Redshirt senior midfielder Rebecca Rodgers (Peotone, Ill.) made history in the victory over the Leathernecks with her pair of goals as she became the program’s all-time leader in goals scored with 33. She moved past Andrea Schmitz (2002-05) who held the previous top program mark with 32 in her outstanding career. Rodgers, who played in just five matches in 2016 due to an injury, is now seventh all-time in the Valley. On Monday, she was recognized for her great play by the MVC with her sixth career MVC Player of the Week award. Rodgers, the 2015 MVC Player of the Year, is having an outstanding final season with a team-leading six goals and 12 points. Both marks are tied for second in the league. She has scored five goals in the past five matches. DES MOINES, Iowa – The Drake University women’s soccer team is set to start Missouri Valley Conference play on Saturday evening when league newcomer Valparaiso visits the Cownie Soccer Complex.

The Crusaders already have their first Valley win after their 1-0 win at Missouri State on Sept. 23. Valparaiso will host Chicago State on Thursday before making the trip to Des Moines. Drake and Valpo have played each other three times (Drake, 2-0-1) with the last meeting a 2-2 draw during the 2004 season.last_img read more

first_imgLeonard, Eoin and John Watson pictured with Jason Black and Sean Feeney near the summit of Errigal during last year’s Errigal Tweet-Up climb.Awareness of childhood cancer will be taken to new heights next weekend when a group of Twitter users from Donegal – and some from further afield – join with any other eager climbers from the general public, to turn Errigal gold at the fourth annual Errigal Tweet-up on Sunday September 27.The charity tweet-up is also aiming to assist the Little Angels School by collecting old mobile phones for the school at their base camp on on the dayThe initial idea for a climb came from a chance comment a few years ago, but after a hugely successful first and second climb, the third was never really in doubt and this year the tradition will continue next weekend. “The climb has been called the ‘Tweet-Up’ because it initially came about through a group of twitter users, but everyone is welcome to come along and take part on the day. If climbing Errigal is something that you’ve always wanted to do, well this is the day to do it,” one of the local organisers, Liam Porter, said.In previous years the climb would have already been held at this stage, but for a variety of reasons it didn’t get to happen and the local twitter users were anxious not to leave it too late in the year.They also say that has allowed them now to tie in with the Childhood Cancer Foundation’s ‘Light it Up Gold’ campaign, albeit with a slightly different twist.“Last year we teamed up with the Autism Awareness campaign who were turning Donegal Blue so we thought that this year we would help raise awareness of childhood cancer by turning Errigal gold,” another one of the tweet-up coordinators, Clare McCahill, said. Liam Porter said the organisers of ‘Light it Up Gold’ were only too glad to have the Tweet-Up as part of their campaign.“The climb has always been tied in with charity so this was a perfect opportunity to tie in with a worth charity group who have their campaign running in September.”Many of Donegal’s notable landmark buildings have already been lit up gold as part of the campaign, so the tweet-up will bring some gold to the county’s most famous mountain.“We couldn’t exactly light up the mountain, but we could at least try bring some gold to it during September and we’d love climbers to wear gold colours or bring gold flags etc on the day if they can.”“We will, as we have in previous years, also be collecting old phones for the Little Angels school in Letterkenny, said Clare, who added that they’d ideally love climbers to make their donations directly to the Childhood Cancer Foundation through the charity’s website – HYPERLINK “http://childhoodcancer.ie/donate-to-the-foundation/” http://childhoodcancer.ie/donate-to-the-foundation/ Climbers are asked to meet at the carpark at the foot of Errigal at 10am on Sunday morning September 27.You can follow the climb on Twitter @errigaltweetup and with the hashtag #errigaltweetup and you can also find out more about the climb by joining the Errigal Tweet-up open group on Facebook or by using the e.mail address HYPERLINK “mailto:lporter@eircom.net” lporter@eircom.net to contact Liam.Photo CaptionLeonard, Eoin and John Watson pictured with Jason Black and Sean Feeney near the summit of Errigal during last year’s Errigal Tweet-Up climb.
