WOMEN’S SOCCER

November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The 4th-seeded Forester women’s soccer team’s season came to an end Saturday night as they suffered a 7-0 loss to top-seeded Spring Arbor University at the Cougar Soccer Complex.

While the lopsided outcome was HU’s heftiest loss of the season, there is still plenty of reason to celebrate this team. The Foresters (10-8-2) advanced to the semis for the first time since 2013, tallied double-digit wins for the first time since 2012 and hosted a postseason match for the first time since 2010.

“Tonight certainly wasn’t the result we were hoping for but that doesn’t take away from the incredible work put in this season by this family,” said Coach Burge. “These ladies have worked day in and day out and it shows on the field and even more so off the field in the way they love each other, love the Lord and love those around us.”

The Cougars, the 2015 National Champs and 2016 National Runners-Up, made it abundantly clear that their No. 3 ranking is legitimate and are likely to make a deep run again in the national tournament as they raced out to a 3-0 advantage within the opening 20 minutes and never looked back on the way to their 18th win of the year and a spot in the finals of the Crossroads League Tournament.

The loss brings an end to HU’s season but Burge’s sentiments about her squad is clear. “I am one extremely blessed coach. We’re looking forward to building upon the momentum established this season but we will certainly miss this service-driven senior class! God no doubt has incredible plans for their futures.”

MEN’S SOCCER

November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

It came down to penalty kicks Saturday afternoon to see who advanced to the finals of the Crossroads League Men’s Soccer Tournament with top-seeded Spring Arbor University converting all five of their PKs to survive and advance over 4th-seeded Huntington.

SAU keeper Isiah Handspike came up with a monster save on HU’s first PK attempt to give his team the upper hand right out of the gate as the Cougars calmly found back netting on all five of its attempts to Huntington’s three to earn their second straight trip to the CL championship match.

The 110 minutes prior to the shootout was a gutsy performance by Coach Lawson’s crew as they held the No. 21 team in the nation scoreless – a feat no other team has accomplished this year. The Cougars entered the day averaging nearly three goals per outing but the Foresters’ defense wouldn’t be cracked as the match ended in a 0-0 tie after a pair of extra periods.

While SAU advances to the finals, the match will go down in the record books as a tie which snaps the Cougars’ seven-match win streak over Huntington. Spring Arbor finished the afternoon outshooting HU 17-10 while also holding a 9-4 edge in corner kicks.

“I’m so proud of the boys’ performance today,” said Coach Lawson. “We played with an organization and clarity that allowed us to go toe-to-toe with a strong Spring Arbor team.

“Both sides had their moments and to hold SAU goalless for 110 minutes was a testament to how well we have been playing down the final stretch of the season.”

The Foresters haven’t given up a goal in the last 380 minutes of play as they wrap up the year holding their last four opponents scoreless.

Nevertheless, Coach Lawson and crew were far from ready for their season to end as they finish with an overall record of 10-4-5. “No one was ready to end this season and that’s what makes this so difficult. The relationships, adversity, development, sacrifice, next-man mentality and the leadership have all made this a special season.

“This group of men set a standard of playing this game with honor, maturity and class. We’re not perfect but the bar has been raised once again and that is exciting for the future of HUMS.”

MEN’S BASKETBALL

November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU men’s basketball team didn’t have an answer for Connor Phee who poured in 40 points to propel Concordia University past their hosts 91-76 Saturday afternoon at Platt Arena. For the Cardinals it was their season opener while the Foresters drop to 0-2 on the year.

Phee, CU’s leading scorer last season, missed just four of his 22 shots, corralled ten rebounds and swatted six shots as a one-person wrecking ball. His support cast included Jalen Thompson with 15 points and Jerald Booker with 13 as HU struggled to contain the Cardinals’ high-octane offense that connected on over half its shots and scored over half its points in the paint.

The Foresters’ starting line-up accounted for all but ten of the team’s points with Konner Platt topping the list with 20. Tyler Arens added 14 points and a team-high eight rebounds. Zac Owens finished with 12 points and three steals while Mason Coverstone posted 11 points.

Senior point guard Mike Bush, HU’s final starter, was a point shy of a double double as he tossed in nine points while handing out a game-best 16 dimes to go along with a game- and career-high five steals.

The lead toggled back and forth five times through the opening nine minutes before the Cardinals took a permanent lead of 18-17 at the 10:46 mark. Their advantage stood at eight, 43-35, at halftime and remained in single digits for all but a handful of possessions in the second half until the final two minutes when CU enjoyed a ten-point spread of 84-74 that grew to 15 by the final buzzer.

HU committed just eight turnovers to Concordia’s 16 and while the visitors got the best of the boards 52-44, Huntington chased down 13 offensive boards to the tune of 13 points while limiting the Cardinals to six offensive rebounds for eight points.

Coach Platt’s crew is back in action on Tuesday when they host Lawrence Tech at 7:00 p.m.

WOMEN’S BASKETBALL

November 6, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester women’s basketball team (1-1) topped Cornerstone University 71-66 on day one of the Crossroads League/WHAC Classic. HU will face their second WHAC opponent in Aquinas College tomorrow at 1:00 p.m. at Platt Arena.

Tonight’s win was Huntington’s first of the year and made possible by their stingy defense. Culler’s squad gave up 66 points on 36.7 percent shooting. They limited their visitors to just 22 field goals with the other 19 points coming by way of the charity stripe.

Composure was also the key to HU’s success. A Sarah Fryman three-point play midway through the first quarter gave the Foresters a lead they would never give up. HU extended the lead to nine, 21-12, to open the second but the Golden Eagles rattled off the next eight points to close the gap to a single point before HU took a stand. Over the next seven minutes, Huntington gave up just five points to head into the locker room up 32-26.

After being strapped with foul trouble through the opening 20 minutes, Hailey Krewald came out guns a blazing to start the third. After a nifty assist to Brooke Saylor, the 5-7 sparkplug gave HU its first double-digit lead of the night with a ten-foot jumper at the 7:01 mark for a 41-30 advantage. She capped off the quarter by swiping a pair of steals for breakaway layups to increase the lead from six to ten.

The Golden Eagles didn’t go down without a fight as they trimmed the lead to two possessions on several occasions in the fourth but each time the Foresters answered.

Casey Morton found nothing but the bottom of the net on a long ball early in the quarter to squelch a CU run and five minutes later, Maddie Richer followed suit to deny Cornerstone any hopes of a heroic comeback. Fryman then connected on three of her four freebies in the final 15 seconds to close out the game for the five-point win.

Fryman was the only Forester to get to the line where she went 7-for-8 on her way to a game-tying 20 points. She also posted five rebounds, three assists and two steals for an all-around solid performance. Saylor recorded her first double double of the year with 12 points and a game-best 11 rebounds, five of the offensive variety.

Morton was a perfect 3-for-3 from long range in addition to scoring on a put back to finish with 11 points as HU’s third double-digit scorer. Sam Hammel handed out a game-high five dimes to go along with eight points.

As a team, HU finished 29-for-64 from the floor for 45.3 percent. They committed 14 turnovers to CU’s 17 but lost the battle of the boards 42-33.

Jesse Sheridan poured in 20 points for the Golden Eagles while Lizzy Otten tossed in 13 and Sydney Muller registered 11.

November 3, 2017 General Comments Off on Auditions for PETER AND THE STARCATCHER – November 28 Posted By: Theatre Department

The Theatre Department is seeking highly energetic individuals for its upcoming spring production of “Peter and the Starcatcher”. All cast members of this production need to enjoy playing in broad comedy, collaborating as an ensemble and portraying vivid characters with stooge-like spontaneity. Casting is open to all HU students, faculty, staff as well as local community members. The director seeks women and men to portray multiple characters. Some actors will double or even triple up on roles. Casting will include gender bending.

Actors and actresses must display skill when transforming between characters, both in voice and physicality. The play requires high energy throughout from all its cast members. There is singing in the play as well as some dancing. But the majority of the play requires flexibility, physicality and stamina from its ensemble.

Auditions are Tuesday November 28 from 6:30-8:30PM in the Acting Lab. Full audition information can be found on the callboard, located next to the Theatre/Comm office in the lower level of the MCA.
