The HU women’s tennis team (1-1, 0-1) couldn’t overcome an early deficit to suffer a 6-3 loss to Marian University (1-0, 1-0) Wednesday afternoon at Klopfenstein Courts.

HU’s only win in doubles action came at the #1 spot where Constanze Golz and Meg Dolde cruised to an 8-2 decision over Elise Betscher and Maria Angela Sunga as Huntington headed into singles play down 2-1.

Golz earned a second point for her team by topping Betscher at #1 singles in straight sets, 6-3, 6-2. Charlotte Seth was the Foresters’ only other W at #4 singles where she got the best of Anne Taylor 6-4, 6-3.

“Today was a learning experience for our freshmen,” said Coach Ferguson. “Marian is a solid, veteran team with good players up and down their line-up. Now our young players know what it takes to win in our conference.”

The Knights finished second in the league last year and return seven from that squad.

The Foresters hit the road tomorrow to take on Defiance at 4:00 p.m.

#1 – Constanze Golz (HU) def. Elise Betscher (MU) 6-3, 6-2
#2 – Maria Lueken (MU) def. Meg Dolde (HU) 6-4, 6-4
#3 – Maria Angela Sunga (MU) def. Lanae Singleton (HU) 6-3, 6-3

Playing in its home opener against Madonna University on Wednesday, the HU women’s soccer team scored within the first four minutes for the early 1-0 lead before the Crusaders got the equalizer in the 31st minute.

It was a defensive battle the rest of the way as the score remained deadlocked at 1-1 through regulation to force overtime. Two OTs later, the score stood for the 1-1 draw. With this tie, the Foresters move to 0-1-1 while MU starts their season 0-0-1.

Just like the previous match, Matéa Knispel and Jaime Calvin teamed up on a corner to find back netting. This time it was a beautiful struck ball by Calvin to Knispel who one-touched into the back of the net from the top of the box at the 3:35 mark. The goal marks Knispel’s ninth of her career.

HU finished with 13 shots to Madonna’s 17 but logged ten corner kicks, six more than their visitors.

While Coach Burge would have preferred the W to avenge last year’s 5-0 loss to the Crusaders, she is pleased with where her team’s at this early in the year. “Although we had our flat moments today, as a whole I’m pleased with the shift in play and the benchmarks we are setting for a solid 2017 season.

“The ladies worked diligently today against a tough Madonna crew. We may have come out even, but I’m excited to watch this season unfold.”

The Foresters hit the road on Tuesday to take on Indiana Tech under the lights at 7:00 p.m.


August 31, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

On opening night of league play, the Forester volleyball team mounted an impressive come-from-behind first set win on the way to a 3-1 decision, 31-29, 17-25, 25-21, 25-18, over the visiting Maple Leafs of Goshen College. With this win, HU improves to 5-2 overall, 1-0 in the conference while GC drops to 5-4 overall, 0-1 in league play.

Set one was a rollercoaster. After jumping out to an early 8-2 advantage, Coach Shondell’s squad watched their lead wither away to the tune of a 24-21 deficit. A series of Goshen attacking errors coupled with Huntington’s never-say-die attitude led to four straight points favoring the hosts. Five ties later, HU finally logged two consecutive points for the win.

The Maple Leafs responded with an impressive set two win but the next two hard-fought sets belonged to Shondell and crew with Tailor Schultheis bolstering the offense. The 5-10 outside hitter came up big to finish with a game-tying 16 kills.

“There isn’t a team in this league that isn’t going to make you earn a win, and Goshen did exactly that,” said Coach Shondell.

Brandy Michie added 12 kills while Josie Beaver was her efficient self, finishing with 11 kills and a .435 hitting percentage. Danielle Gurwell also registered double-digit kills with ten. Laruen Cresses and Haley Longley got into the action offensively to post seven and six kills respectively to round out a well-balanced Forester attack.

“Tailor was the spark we know her to be, she was effective at the right times and that was crucial for us,” noted Shondell. “I was also really pleased with our middles. We continue giving them more of a role in our offense and they live up to the task.”

The offense ran through Emily Hubby and Breanna Levings who recorded 28 and 24 assists respectively.

The Foresters got the job done defensively as well with Kate Cobb tallying a game-best 30 digs and Beaver earning game-high blocking honors with 2.5 which included two solos.

Huntington heads to Missouri over the weekend to compete in the Columbia College Hampton Inn Invitational to play four matches with their first on Friday against Missouri Baptist.

It was an epic Crossroads League showdown Wednesday at Klopfenstein Courts with the Knights of Marian University slipping past the Forester men’s tennis team 5-4. For the second time this season, the outcome came down to #5 singles.

The final match lasting well past 10PM, eventually favored Nick Marroquin. It was a three-set thriller with HU sophomore Jacob Shelton finally conceding the loss.

Huntington started off strong with a pair of wins in doubles action before picking up two more wins at #2 and #6 singles to account for their four points.

Marian (1-0, 1-0) has gone undefeated in the Crossroads League regular season the last three years and has landed a spot at the NAIA National Tournament two straight years.

The Foresters (1-2, 1-1) have a break until Tuesday when they host Saint Francis at 3:00 p.m.

#1 – Nathan Bogle (MU) def. Ignacio Poncio (HU) 3-6, 6-3, 7-6 (7-4)

In an emotionally charged battle against #RV Indiana Tech, the Forester men’s soccer team came out on the short end of a 2-1 decision at King Stadium Wednesday afternoon.

It was a tale of two halves for HU as Coach Lawson praised his team’s opening 45 minutes.

“We came out strong and moved the ball really well to generate a couple of opportunities and reaped the benefits early on for a quick 1-0 advantage.”

On a restart just over ten minutes in, Brooks Smith played a ball to Miguel de Sousa who got on top of it with a header for a picture perfect goal, his first of the season.

The scored remained as is until just before halftime when the Warriors slipped one past HU keeper Troy Hester for the 1-1 stalemate. It proved to be the turning point.

“We were getting possession and moving the ball so well and then we switched off after that goal,” said Lawson. “We didn’t take care of the ball in our box and paid the price.

“From that point on, we struggled to regain momentum through the middle of the park. They did a better of closing us down and taking away our options in the second half and we struggled to find answers.”

The final 45 minutes featured just six shots but as luck would have it, the game-winner came on an own goal 15 minutes in to make for the 2-1 final.

“I thought we fought well until the end but unfortunately we weren’t able to find the equalizer,” said Lawson. “I’m disappointed that we switched off but we’ll be better. I am confident of that.

“I look forward to this weekend against some top notch competition.”

HU heads to Kentucky over Labor Day weekend for the University of the Cumberlands Classic. Lawson’s crew will face Union on Saturday at 3:30 p.m. and then Cumberland on Monday at the same time.
