Harris was pulled in the 71st minute, her first benching at SU. Proulx came on in relief, allowing a goal in a 4-0 loss to the then-winless Crimson. “Lysianne is training really well,” Wheddon said. “I have no problems making a change if we need to.”While Wheddon said Harris had the edge in SU’s goalkeeper competition on Aug. 27, something changed on Sunday. Harris only made one noticeable mistake against NU, a positional error that almost cost the Orange a goal off a corner. Taylor Bennett made the clear to save the scoring opportunity in the 24th minute, and Harris was left unscathed in the first half.Going forward, Wheddon said the goalkeeper is never fully secure. Though she didn’t appear in the team’s first three games and has yet to start, Proulx has thrown her name back into the discussion.“We’re in a luxurious position that if one isn’t getting it done, either one of the two can,” Wheddon said. Comments On Sunday, SU head coach Phil Wheddon made a goalkeeper change at halftime in a scoreless game. Jordan Harris, who has started all five times for the Orange this season, was pulled halfway through SU’s game against Northeastern for sophomore Lysianne Proulx. It was a sudden move: Harris had started for the entirety of this season and was near-perfect against NU, not allowing a goal to eight Wildcat shots. Harris’ replacement, Proulx, only had 105:48 collegiate minutes in goal.It ended up paying off for the Orange. Proulx saved three shots, keeping the game scoreless, and Georgia Allen scored a game-winner in the 83rd minute. The change puts SU in an interesting situation: start the experienced graduate-transfer in Harris or take a chance on Proulx’s potential.“We compete every single day for one spot,” Harris said. “It’s a lot different than everybody else on the field.”Before SU’s summer training camps started, Wheddon assumed Proulx would play in the U20 Women’s World Cup for Canada. SU would go into camp with only one goalkeeper on its roster. Wheddon started to look for a replacement.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textHarris had just finished her redshirt junior season with the Razorbacks, where she allowed 0.77 goals per game, posted eight shutouts and started in the NCAA tournament. The season prior, the Orange had lost its starting goalkeeper of four years, Courtney Brosnan, who graduated as SU’s leader in saves. After three years as Arkansas’ leading goalkeeper, Harris made a decision to leave the Razorbacks.“I hadn’t planned it whatsoever,” Harris said. “To put it lightly, it wasn’t a situation I didn’t think I would be put in.”SU was one of Harris’ last offers. She said she wasn’t sure of the move at first, but was won over during her visit to campus a couple of weeks prior to her decision. Harris was impressed by the training regime and the expertise of Wheddon, who has coached goalkeepers such as Hope Solo prior to his reign at SU. Harris liked the challenge of the ACC Coastal Division , a higher level of competition than her opponents at Arkansas, she said, so she chose the Orange in late June.After Harris signed, SU had three goalkeepers on its roster: Harris, Proulx and freshman Ally Wakeman. Wheddon said it was an open competition for the team’s starting spot, as he said the year before.When evaluating the goalies, he avoided using Harris’ experience as a catalyst for the decision because of the style differences between the SEC and the ACC. Proulx was the only keeper with experience in SU’s system, playing 86:18 minutes of relief in her first season.But Wheddon went with Harris in SU’s season-opener against La Salle.“You’re looking for a goalkeeper to have a good day more often than not,” Wheddon said. “And that was the case with Jordan leading up to that first game.”Harris played all 90 minutes in the Orange’s first three games, allowing two goals across the three contests.“It’s hard,” Proulx said. “I try to tell myself there’s time for me to come back. Obviously, you work harder, but at the end of the day I tell myself I’m going to do it because I love it.”On Thursday, SU began to experiment. Harvard and SU were squared at 0-0 in the first half, but the Orange’s backline started to collapse. A 52nd minute penalty kick opened up the scoring for the Crimson. In the 63rd Harris mishit a clearance to make it 2-0 and in the 69th minute Harvard senior Leah Mohammadi knocked in another penalty to increase the lead.

CONQUEST FARENHEIT, ZAKAROFF, CISTRON & TACO ALL FIGURE PROMINENTLY IN SUNDAY’S $75,000 PASADENA STAKES AT MILE ON TURF; WIDE OPEN FIELD OF 10 SOPHOMORES ENGAGED
THE $75,000 PASADENA STAKES WITH JOCKEYS & WEIGHTS IN POST POSITION ORDERRace 8 of 9 Approximate post time 4 p.m. PST CONQUEST FARENHEIT: Originally based with trainer Mark Casse at Woodbine, this Kentucky-bred colt by Scatt Daddy pressed the pace in the 6 ½ furlong turf Baffle here on Feb. 20, prevailing by 1 ¾ lengths as the 7-5 favorite in his second start for Miller. A sharp second at 4-5 in the one mile turf Summer Stakes (Grade II) three starts back at Woodbine on Sept. 18, he’s been favored in all four of his lifetime starts and looks like the probable Pasadena favorite as he stretches back out to two turns. Additionally, he achieved a Pasadena-best 92 Beyer Speed figure in winning the Baffle. Owned by Rockingham Ranch or Littlefield, he’s 4-2-1-1 with earnings of $110,045. ZAKAROFF: A respectable fifth two starts back in the 1 1/16 miles California Derby on Jan. 21, this Kentucky-bred gelding by California-based Slew’s Tiznow stretched out to 1 1/8 miles on Golden Gate’s synthetic Tapeta to win the Grade III El Camino Real Derby by a half length on Feb. 18 at odds of 48-1. With many options before them, Zakaroff’s connections appear to have chosen a prudent path in trying grass for the first time in the Pasadena. A graded stakes winner on synthetic, Zakaroff can be expected to handle the turf well as he cuts back in distance a furlong. Ridden to victory in the El Camino Real Derby by Kyle Frey, he’ll get the first-time services of Joe Talamo on Sunday. Owned by longtime Specht client Antone Metaxas, Zakaroff is the leading money earner in the field with $148,120 accumulated from an overall mark of 6-2-1-1. ARCADIA, Calif. (March 16, 2017)–With eight out of the 10 runners engaged coming off recent wins, Conquest Farenheit, Zakaroff, Cistron and undefeated Taco all figure prominently in Sunday’s $75,000 Pasadena Stakes, for 3-year-olds at one mile on the Santa Anita turf.With trainer Peter Miller’s Conquest Farenheit and Steve Specht’s Zakaroff both coming off last-out stakes wins, John Sadler’s Cistron, comes off a gutty allowance win over the course. Throw in Efren Loza, Jr.’s Taco, unbeaten in four starts, his most recent triumph a minor turf stakes at Sam Houston Park, the Pasadena looms a completely wide-open affair and quite possibly the best betting race on the nine-race program. TACO: Unbeaten in four starts, two at Gulfstream, one at Fairgrounds in New Orleans and most recently a 1 1/16 miles turf stakes Sam Houston Park on Feb. 25, this Kentucky-bred colt by Gio Ponti looms the biggest question mark in the field in what will be his Southern California debut. Based at Gulfstream Park West (formerly Calder), Taco would appear to have the right style in what appears to be a speed-laden lineup as he’s rallied from off the pace in all four of his wins. Owned by Kathleen Amaya, Raffaele Centofanti and Daniel Alonso, Taco has earnings of $82,800. CISTRON: A gate to wire winner one mile turf allowance winner here on Feb. 5, he made the lead two starts back when third, beaten three quarter of a length in the one mile turf Eddie Logan Stakes two starts back on Dec. 30. Triple Crown nominated, this Kentucky-bred colt by The Factor broke his maiden at a mile turf three starts back on Dec. 4 and appears on edge for Sunday’s Pasadena. Owned by Hronis Racing, LLC or Little Red Feather Racing, Cistron could be hard pressed to make the early lead if Conquest Farenheit opts for a similar trip. With an overall record of 5-2-0-2, he has earnings of $80,889. Big Sky Logan–Corey Nakatani–120Taxman’s Quest–Flavien Prat–120Ritzy A. P.–Victor Espinoza–120Ky.
