WOMEN’S SOCCER

October 16, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU women’s soccer team knocked off one of the top teams in the nation Saturday afternoon by handing #RV Mount Vernon Nazarene University a 2-1 loss. The Cougars are currently ranked 28th in the country.

With this W, Huntington (7-6-1) jumps into third place in the league standings with a CL record of 3-2 while MVNU (8-4-1) drops into fifth with a 2-2-1 league record.

Matéa Knispel entered the contest ranked 21st in the NAIA in total goals with 13 and added two more to her total by day’s end. Her first goal came at the 4:09 mark when she rocketed a shot far post from 20 out for a quick 1-0 advantage.

The Cougars answered within 18 minutes to knot things up at 1-1. The stalemate continued well beyond halftime and looked as if things could head to OT but a hard foul on Knispel in the box with seven minutes remaining quickly changed all that. The junior midfielder dusted herself off and calmly drilled the PK for what proved to be the game-winner, her fourth of the year.

Shots were similar with Mount Vernon holding a slight 18-16 advantage. The Cougars tallied nine on frame while their visitors finished with eight.

Paige Coolman picked up the win in goal. The senior keeper posted eight saves.

“Today’s win came at a critical point for us as we looked to get back in the win column,” said Coach Burge. “It certainly wasn’t our cleanest game of the season but the girls battled hard against a very tough Mount Vernon squad.

“We fought for 90 minutes from end to end and showed plenty of grit to get the job done. We look forward to cleaning up a few things before our match on Wednesday.”

Huntington plays under the lights at Grace on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.

MEN’S SOCCER

October 16, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Huntington men’s soccer team (6-3-4) jumped two spots in the league standings with a 2-0 win over Mount Vernon Nazarene University (7-7, 2-3) Saturday afternoon at King Stadium. The Foresters are now sitting in fourth place among their league peers with a 2-1-2 CL record.

For senior Troy Hester, it was his second clean sheet of the season and the fifth time HU has shutout its opponent.

Less than 60 seconds in, the Cougars were whistled with a handball in the box and Matheus Louzada was quick to convert the ensuing penalty kick to give his team an early lead that proved permanent. The goal was his sixth of the year, the 14th of his career.

Nineteen minutes later, HU struck once more and Louzada again had a hand in it. This time he split the Cougar defense with a pass into Bradey Gerke who blasted it home for the 2-0 advantage that stuck.

The match was a hard fought battle in which shots were hard to come by. Mount Vernon finished with seven shots, two on frame, while HU tallied six, half of which were on goal. The Cougars have scored just once in their last three outings and are currently riding a three-game losing streak.

“This was an excellent response by the boys from the previous game that we felt let get away from us,” said Coach Lawson referring to HU’s recent 2-0 loss to #19 Spring Arbor.

“Matheus continues to shine and it was great to see us capitalize early on our opportunities. This was a great team win – we had a resolute back line with big games from Stevie, Danny and Migs in the midfield.”

Huntington hosts Grace on Wednesday at 4:00 p.m.

VOLLEYBALL

October 16, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU volleyball team wrapped up the weekend at the Liz Lykowski Memorial Tournament hosted by Indiana Tech with a pair of five-set losses to drop to 12-16 on the year. The Foresters now turn their attention back to league play as they have five regular season CL matches to go before postseason.

Against Lawrence Tech, the Foresters tallied 63 kills to LTU’s 54 but uncharacteristically had nine service errors to the Blue Devils’ three and were out-blocked 13-7 for the loss, 25-12, 16-25, 25-17, 24-26, 15-13.

Tailor Schultheis continued the hot hand offensively by following up her 19-kill performance against IU Southeast yesterday with a match-best 17 kills against Lawrence Tech. Danielle Gurwell added 15 kills and Josie Beaver finished with 11. Jenna Tacosik handled the bulk of the setting to finish with a team-high 36 assists.

Kate Cobb didn’t miss a beat from yesterday by tallying a match-best 32 digs.

Despite a short turnaround, HU started their match with IU Kokomo by winning the opening set before settling for their third straight loss, 23-25, 25-18, 23-25, 25-13, 15-8. The Cougars (18-8) have won 13 straight which includes going 4-0 over the weekend to be deemed the tournament champions. IUK lost just four sets over the two-day tourney, half of those coming from HU.

After posting a new career-best 15 kills against Lawrence Tech, Gurwell bettered her best by recording 17 kills against IU Kokomo. Beaver collected 15 kills to establish a new season-high. Setting was a shared effort with Emily Hubby running the offense the final three sets to finish with a team-high 26 assists.

Defensively, Cobb turned in the best performance of her career with 44 digs. Her dig total for the weekend was 131 and for her efforts was named to the All-Tournament Team.

At the net, Beaver finished with 2.5 of her team’s ten blocks. The 5-10 middle currently leads the league in blocking and after this weekend, she landed the third spot in the HU record books for blocks in a career with 405.

While Coach Shondell was hoping for a few more wins this weekend, he was pleased with his team’s performance. “The purpose of this weekend was to test us and prepare us for this final stretch of conference play. And we accomplished that.

“The results are certainly not what we wanted, and we absolutely feel like we ought to be coming home with three or four victories rather than a 1-3 weekend finish, but we played good teams and did nothing but battle the whole way.”

He especially like the leadership a trio of seniors offered. “I was very pleased with Kate’s defensive efforts. At times, they kept us in the game.

“Josie worked her absolute tail off all weekend and today was no different. We lost two of our three setters by the end of the day and you couldn’t ask for a better emotional and focused response to the situation than what we got out of Emily.”

Huntington returns to Platt Arena on Wednesday to host Taylor at 7:00 p.m.
