October 30, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Friday night was a perfect way for the seniors to wrap up their time in Platt Arena as the HU volleyball team picked up a 3-1 win over the Cougars of Mount Vernon Nazarene University (18-16, 5-12). It was senior night and appropriately so, the five veterans led the way.

Seniors Josie Beaver and Danielle Gurwell took charge of the net offensively to finish with 12 and 11 kills respectively while their classmates spearheaded the defensive efforts. Kate Cobb anchored the backline with 19 digs. Emily Hubby and Mikayla Carpenter added 13 and 11 digs.

“Our seniors lived up to the hype tonight,” said Coach Shondell. “It was a legitimate team effort, but having that group of seniors lead us to a crucial league win was just awesome.”

Tonight’s win was the seniors’ first time to beat the Cougars during their tenure in a Forester uniform and Coach Shondell couldn’t be happier for his upperclassmen. “It’s good to beat a team for the first time like that. Exercising demons has kind of been a theme for us recently.”

The last time the Foresters beat Mount Vernon, a 3-1 decision, dates back to September of 2013. Friday’s W also snapped Huntington’s four-game losing skid as they improve to 13-18 overall, 7-9 in league play. With two regular season games remaining, the Foresters are sitting in sixth in the league standings.

Things didn’t start off too well for the hosts as the Cougars ran away with set one before Huntington finally settled in to ward off MVNU in set two for a two-point decision and then cruised to a pair of easy wins after that to secure the victory.

“To come out as flat as we did, yet to respond and turn the tide like that is a sign of a mature team,” said Shondell. “We get to celebrate these seniors a little bit longer then we get one more crack at Marian tomorrow.”

The Foresters hit the road tomorrow to take on No. 25 Knights at 5:00 p.m. Marian is currently sitting atop the league.


October 30, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Saturday’s 2-0 win at King Stadium against Taylor University was significant for the HU men’s soccer team for several reasons. Not only was it senior day, but the W also solidified a top four finish in the Crossroads League regular season standings which translates into a first round home match in postseason play.

The Foresters (9-4-4, 5-2-2) enter the tournament as the 4th-seed and will host 5th-seeded Bethel College on Wednesday with the specific time TBA. This is the second straight year HU will have hosted a first round tournament match.

“Today was another opportunity to respond to adversity as we had two more starters out and collectively we stood up to the challenge,” said Coach Lawson.

Huntington has prided itself on defense all season with today’s performance no different. It marked the seventh time this season HU has held their opponent scoreless as they’ve allowed just 18 goals on the year.

At the other end of the pitch, the Foresters also got the job done. In just his third start of the year, freshman Valentin De Coninck came up with his first collegiate goal when he pounced on a loose ball in the box to bury it back netting 23 minutes in for the early 1-0 advantage.

The cherry on top came with less than 60 seconds remaining when Troy Hester punched a Taylor corner to Matheus Louzada who found Noah Stanford. It was a foot race after that as Stanford took it three-fourths the length of the field before blasting it past the Trojan keeper for his second goal this season.

“Val got things started with tenacious defending and opportunistic finishing,” noted Lawson. “Our attack continually showed its versatility with being able to create numerous opportunities behind Taylor’s backline.

“But if I’m honest, it was our resolute defending in the second half that was most impressive. From Troy, the back four and Migs organizing and willingness to track, we were able to get our second straight clean sheet.”

Before the match, HU honored its five seniors, Aaron Harting, Troy Hester, Isaac Jones, Brooks Smith and Hayden Suter.


October 30, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green

The Huntington women’s soccer team locked in the No. 4 spot in the final Crossroads League standings with a 1-0 road win over Taylor University Saturday night.

It was a dogfight to the bitter end as there were well over 200 possible scenarios based on today’s results. The Foresters got the job done against the #RV Trojans to set the stage for their top four finish and the opportunity to host a first round tournament match.

This marks the first time since 2010 that HU (9-7-2) has hosted a tourney game but even more impressive is the difference a year makes. Second year head coach Amanda Burge has made incredible strides already during her short tenure – having been denied postseason play last year with a 1-4-4 league record to finishing in the top four this season with a conference record of 5-3-1.

The game’s only goal came at the foot of Huntington’s mainstay all season Matéa Knispel. The junior midfielder has scored 17 times this season. She blasted tonight’s goal from 30 yards out with just over ten minutes remaining in the first half for her sixth game-winner of the year. Knispel entered the contest ranked 15th in game winning goals and 25th in total goals.

Paige Coolman was sensational in goal for the Foresters, logging her second straight shutout with the first earlier this week against #15 Marian. The senior keeper finished with a pair of saves as only two of Taylor’s 18 shots were on target. The Foresters posted seven shots, five of which were on goal.

“This has been quite a week for our family,” said Coach Burge. “Beginning with tying national ranked Marian and heading into tonight’s game tied for fourth with Taylor, we knew success relied on our ability to handle high pressure situations.

“Our ladies were able to dig deep and get the job done against a very well organized Taylor crew. Earning the honor of hosting postseason is an incredible testament of all the work they’ve put in this season!”

The 4th-seeded Foresters will host 5th-seeded Mount Vernon Wednesday afternoon in quarterfinal action of the CL tournament. The specific time is TBA. In regular season play, HU enjoyed a 2-1 decision at MVNU back on October 14.


October 30, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

After an impressive 3-1 win over Mount Vernon on Friday, the Forester volleyball team came up short but turned in a quality performance against #25 Marian University Saturday afternoon in a 3-0 decision (-22, -20, -25) that favored the Knights at the MU Physical Education Center.

With this loss, HU drops to 13-19 overall, 7-10 in league play. With just Bethel left on their regular season schedule, Coach Shondell’s crew is sitting sixth in the CL standings.

Today’s win for the Knights (26-4, 16-2), the league’s regular season champs, marks their second victory over Huntington this season with the first dating back to September 23 when the Foresters took them to five sets, Marian’s only five-set win of the year.

Danielle Gurwell and Breanna Metz shared team-high kill honors with eight each. Josie Beaver added six kills to go along two solo blocks.

Jenna Tacosik ran HU’s offense to finish with a match-best 27 assists. Kate Cobb took charge of the backline with a match-high 21 digs. Ariene Butler posted 15 digs while Emily Hubby and Mikayla Carpenter tallied 11 and ten respectively.

The Foresters are back on the road on Wednesday to face the Lady Pilots at 7:00 p.m.
