November 2, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The 4th-seeded HU women’s soccer team is moving on to the semifinals of the Crossroads League Tournament compliments of junior Matéa Knispel’s golden goal 30 seconds into the second overtime of their quarterfinal matchup with 5th-seeded Mount Vernon Nazarene University Wednesday afternoon.

After playing to a 1-1 tie through regulation and the first OT, Knispel was quick to wrap things up with a blast far post less than a minute into the second extra period for her seventh game-winner of the year and a 2-1 win in quarterfinal action of the CL tourney.

The Foresters beat the Cougars in regular season 2-1 with HU’s first goal coming within the opening five minutes of play. It was a similar start today but Coach Burge’s crew needed just three minutes to take the lead when Brandi Spear rocketed a shot back netting at the 3:07 mark. The senior forward has 11 goals on the year.

It was quiet the rest of the half as both teams combined for just three shots. Mount Vernon came out of intermission firing on all cylinders to create several quality opportunities and their pressure finally paid off in the 66th minute when Alexa Skal sent one upper right 90 for the equalizer.

The Cougars continued to be the aggressors but HU’s defense wouldn’t budge after that. Paige Coolman made sure of it by coming up with some big saves including a huge stop with just over 15 seconds to go in regulation to send the match to extra time. The senior keeper finished with nine saves for her seventh win of the year.

The first overtime featured three shots by HU and two by the Cougars for the stalemate before Knispel’s heroics. Spear earned the assist, her fourth of the season, on Knispel’s game-winner.

Mount Vernon outshot their hosts 13-7 with ten on goal to HU’s four.

“Without question this was one of our toughest matches this season, but also one of our most consistently played 90+ minutes,” said Coach Burge. “The ladies were hungry today and knew that we had what it took to continue our post season charge.

“We simply had to put it all together and play our style of soccer. It goes without saying that I’m incredibly proud of the effort they put forth today and look forward to the battle that lies ahead Saturday!”

Huntington will play the winner of #1 Spring Arbor/#8 Bethel on Saturday in the semifinals. The last time the Foresters won a postseason match dates back to 2013 when they beat MVNU 2-1 in double OT.

The 4th-seeded Forester men’s soccer team punched their ticket to the semifinals of the Crossroads League Tournament Wednesday afternoon with a 2-0 shutout over 5th-seeded Bethel College in the quarterfinals of the tourney at King Stadium. It’s the second straight year HU has won their opening match of postseason play and the first W over Bethel since September 25, 1993, when they handed the Pilots a 2-0 loss.

Valentin De Coninck and Matheus Louzada teamed up in the first half to provide all of their team’s offensive firepower. Louzada found De Coninck on a free kick in the 25th minute who one-timed it into the back of the net for a 1-0 advantage. De Coninck has scored in HU’s last two contests.

The freshman forward returned the favor four minutes later by picking the pocket of a Bethel defender and then crossing the ball to Louzada who smashed it home for a 2-0 lead that stood the test of time. Louzada leads the team in scoring with eight goals and eight assists on the year for 24 points, which ranks him third among his league peers.

While the Pilots fired off 16 shots to HU’s six, Coach Lawson’s crew was resolute as they held their visitors scoreless, their third straight clean sheet with Troy Hester earning the win in frame each time. The senior keeper finished with five saves.

“Our defense was once again outstanding from Troy to our backline to Miguel directing traffic,” said Coach Lawson. “Stephen Brown came off the bench to offer us some great minutes tonight. He was where he needed to be, when he needed to be.”

The veteran skipper was also pleased with the play of De Coninck. “Val continues to shine for us. He really got things going for us today on that set piece by getting the inside track to beat his man to the ball for our first score.”

“Overall, the boys earned this win and deserve the opportunity to move on,” said Lawson. “I thought we showed great maturity to see this match through – especially in the second half when we didn’t get drawn into spending any negative energy on things out of our control.”

HU (10-4-4) now awaits the winner of #1 Spring Arbor/#8 Taylor for a matchup on Saturday in semifinal action of the CL tourney.


November 2, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

It wasn’t how the Forester volleyball team wanted to wrap up their regular season as they dropped a 3-0 decision (-19, -24, -22) to Bethel College Wednesday night at Goodman Gymnasium. The loss is HU’s first to the Pilots as the league foes split the season series with Huntington beating BC in three the first time around back on September 20.

Both teams finished with a 7-11 conference record to tie for 6th in the final league standings with Shondell’s crew winning the tiebreaker to earn the 6th-seed headed into postseason. The #6 Foresters will travel to #3 Grace on Saturday for the quarterfinals of the CL tourney.

Huntington struggled offensively as they managed just 28 kills and a .061 hitting percentage. Danielle Gurwell led the way with eight kills. Breanna Metz added seven while Josie Beaver tallied five.

The Pilots, on the other hand, logged 40 kills and a .173 hitting percentage to win the battle at the net offensively. They also won the battle at the net defensively by out-blocking their visitors 8-6.

Jenna Tacosik topped Huntington in assists with 22. Ariene Butler bolstered the backline with 15 digs while Kate Cobb and Mikayla Carpenter chipped in 12 and ten respectively.

HU is now 13-20 on the year.


November 2, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Huntington men’s basketball team opened up its season Wednesday night at Platt Arena with a 96-89 loss to an offensively potent Saint Xavier University crew.

The Cougars shot 57.1 percent (36-for-63) which included draining 12 triples to establish a lead from opening tip-off that they gave up just once early in the contest after Tyler Arens knocked down his first of three long balls for a 6-5 HU advantage four minutes into the night.

Jared Jones countered with back-to-back threes and a traditional three-point play by Chris Soczek capped off a 9-0 SXU run in a 90-second span allowing the visitors to reclaim the lead at 14-6. Ten minutes later, the Cougars still owned an eight-point advantage.

It looked like the tides might turn when Kyle Platt scored and was fouled on a fast break dunk. The senior forward completed the three-point play to trim the lead to four at 39-35 by the 3:03 mark. Unfortunately, it wasn’t to be as Quinn Niego spearheaded another Cougar run to close out the half to extend the lead to double digits at 53-40 by intermission.

Niego finished the period with 17 points, which included going 5-for-5 behind the arc. Mike Bush was just as effective through the opening 20 minutes by pouring in 18 points on 7-for-9 shooting while Arens added 12.

SXU’s lead remained in double digits for the first 15 minutes of the second half. Zac Owens finally dipped the lead to nine, 83-74, on a driving layup at the 5:26 mark. Twice after that, the difference stood at just six points but the Foresters would get no closer as the Cougars improved to 1-1 while HU starts the year at 0-1.

After his 18-point first half performance, Bush added ten more points but turned his attention to distributing the basketball as he dished out six assists in the second period to finish with 28 points and a game-best seven assists.

Bush’s main target was Arens as evidenced by his monster second half. The 6-8 forward poured in 23 to finish with a career-best 35 points to go along with a career-high 13 rebounds, seven of which were offensive, for the double double.

A pair of rookies in Owens and Junior Scott came off the bench to register seven points each in their college debut.

As a team, the Foresters finished 32-for-64 from the field for 50.0 percent. They connected on 19 of their 29 free throw attempts for 65.5 percent. Behind Aren’s 13 boards, HU outrebounded the Cougars 37-34. Turnovers were a wash as HU committed eight to SXU’s seven.

Niego topped Saint Xavier with 25 points and 11 rebounds. Soczek added 18 while Jaelon Wilson came off the bench to record 14 and Kevin Fervil finished with ten.

Next up for Coach Platt’s crew is another home game against Concordia University (MI) on Saturday at 3:00 p.m.
