Go Foresters!!


September 11, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU women’s soccer team headed up north over the weekend to take on a pair of WHAC conference schools. After suffering a 1-0 loss to Cornerstone on Friday, the Foresters bounced back to log their first victory of the year with a 1-0 win over Aquinas College.

It was a defensive battle from start to finish on Friday with the only goal of the day coming in the 39th minute when CU’s Erica Mick lofted a shot over senior keeper Paige Coolman who finished with five saves on the day.

The Golden Eagles finished with ten shots while HU registered five. Matea Knispel finished with two shots, one on frame, for the Foresters.

On Saturday, Huntington was solid on both sides of the ball to claim the well-deserved win.

“Every time we’ve stepped on the pitch this season, we’ve had a goal in mind,” said Coach Burge. “Before tonight, we’ve stepped off learning a valuable lesson but tonight everything clicked and we finally broke the seal!

“We hustled for 90 minutes and never let our pace of play drop. I couldn’t be more proud of the way these ladies came together to beat a tough Aquinas crew.”

Saturday’s win was the identical score of the Foresters’ win over the Saints last year. The win is also HU’s first shutout of the season with Coolman posting the clean sheet in the net.

Audra Klopfenstein came up with the game’s only big play just after intermission when she found back netting on a header from a picture perfect cross from Tessy Geiss. Klopfenstein’s goal is her first of the season, the fourth of her career.

HU finished with 16 shots to Aquinas’ 14 in an evenly matched contest with nine on target for the visitors while the hosts finished with six on frame.

Burge’s crew (1-3-1) is on the road again on Wednesday to take on Manchester University at 3:30 p.m.

September 11, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S GOLF Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester men’s golf team hosted its own invitational at Rock Hollow over the weekend to kick off the season. It was a picture of consistency for Coach Sholund’s crew as they fired a 320 on Friday and followed up with a 319 on Saturday to start and end at the No. 5 spot.

At HU’s No. 1 spot, Cale Carr posted 156 (74, 82) to finish 8th overall out of 47 golfers. Andrew Weisheit tied for 14th by carding a 158 (80, 78). Zakry Cummings shot an 82 and 81 for a 163 good for a share of 26th place while Luis Esteban (90, 78) and Chandler Rang (84, 97) recorded a 168 and 181 respectively for the Foresters.

“There were a lot of positives for the team this weekend,” said Coach Sholund. “The big numbers hurt us but it’s early in the season and we are focused on learning from that.

“We are looking forward to preparing for our next event.”

Indiana Wesleyan University edged out Mount Vernon by one stroke to claim the title by firing a 620. Saint Francis finished third with a 633 followed by IU South Bend (635), HU (639), IU Kokomo (641), Spring Arbor (643) and St. Mary of the Woods (661).

HU heads to the Spring Arbor University Fall Classic on Monday, September 18.
