WOMEN’S TENNIS

October 9, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S TENNIS Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU women’s tennis team suffered a 5-0 loss to Indiana Wesleyan University in the Crossroads League Tournament Championship at Sutter Tennis Center Saturday morning.

For the Foresters, it was their first trip to the league finals under Coach Ferguson’s tutelage. For the Wildcats, it proved to be their 26th straight league tournament championship. Today’s win also gives IWU a berth to the NAIA National Tournament in May.

Huntington entered the tournament as the 3rd seed and their road to the finals included a 7-2 win over 6th-seeded Grace in the quarterfinals and a 5-3 upset over 2nd-seeded Marian in the semis.

“I am very proud of all the hard work and focus the team displayed this fall culminating in a memorable win over Marian University in the semifinals and a spot in the Crossroads League Tournament Finals,” said Coach Ferguson.

HU wraps up the fall portion of their schedule with an overall record of 14-3.

WOMEN’S SOCCER

October 9, 2017 Sports Comments Off on WOMEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Huntington women’s soccer team came up just short of playing spoiler to Indiana Wesleyan’s homecoming as they took the #RV Wildcats to double OT before suffering a 2-1 loss on a windy Saturday afternoon.

The loss is HU’s first in league play as they move to 2-1 in Crossroads League action, 6-5-1 overall.

IWU (8-1-2, 1-1-1) struck first just before halftime to take a 1-0 lead into break. Matéa Knispel wasted little time drawing things even when she blasted a free kick off the crossbar and off the IWU keeper into back netting for the 1-1 stalemate ten minutes into the second half.

Knispel has scored in six of HU’s last seven matches. She has 13 goals on the year.

Neither team could crack the others’ defense through regulation or the first extra period but five minutes in the second OT, Tia Sanford logged her fourth game-winner of the season for the abrupt ending.

IWU finished with 20 shots, 12 on target, while their visitors totaled 16 shots, eight on frame. Paige Coolman, finishing with eight saves, took the loss in goal for HU.

“No loss is ever easy but this one is particularly difficult because we let it slip away right at the end,” said Coach Burge. “This was a really tough fought battle from start to finish. We did come out a little flat in the first half but I’m extremely proud of the ladies for pulling it together and kicking it in gear in the second half.

“It’s an unfortunate loss but we’re ready to turn the page on Monday and prepare for our next match. We will learn from what happened and move forward.”

HU has a tall order on Wednesday when they host #2 Spring Arbor at 4:00 p.m.

MEN’S SOCCER

October 9, 2017 Sports Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

Homecoming fans got their money’s worth Saturday afternoon at King Stadium as the HU men’s soccer team went to double OT against Goshen College that finished in a 1-1 draw. The tie is Huntington’s fourth of year as the move to 5-2-4 overall, 1-0-2 in league play.

Just three games into the conference portion of their season, Coach Lawson’s crew is sitting in fourth.

It was a proverbial tale of two halves for the hosts. “I was extremely excited about what we were able to create offensively in the first half,” said Coach Lawson. “But, unfortunately, we weren’t able to adjust to Goshen’s tweaks at halftime. Credit Goshen – they’re a strong team.”

Matheus Louzada scored HU’s goal 15 minutes after kick-off when Luke Unger found him in behind Goshen’s defense for a 1-0 tilt. It was a lead that stood through halftime as the Foresters controlled the opening 45 minutes, posting seven shots to GC’s three.

While HU got off another seven shots in the second half, the Maple Leafs took control, firing nine shots which included their equalizer in the 69th minute. It proved to be the game’s final score as neither team, each logging three shots in the extra periods, could find back netting again.

Huntington finished with seven shots on frame to Goshen’s six. The Foresters also won the corner kick battle 5-3.

“I am very proud of the boys for their grit and their ‘bend don’t break’ mentality,” said Lawson. “The bottom line is – we got a valuable point today.”

Next up for the Foresters is a trip to Spring Arbor Wednesday to face the 19-ranked Cougars under the lights at 7:00 p.m.

CROSS COUNTRY

October 9, 2017 Sports Comments Off on CROSS COUNTRY Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The HU cross country team competed in the Bethel College Invitational on Friday night where the Forester men ran to an 11th place finish out of 14 teams while the women’s team didn’t score as a team.

Kevin Moser ran a 27:31.5 to pace the men with a 41st place finish out of 178 runners. Elijah Chesterman clocked in at 27:51.4 for 47th place. Adrien Gentie crossed the line next for HU in 28:27.2 for 60th place.

Sunshine state teammates Elston Jones (29:02.7) and CJ Robertson (29:05.9) rounded out the scoring by finishing 69th and 71st respectively. Other runners for Huntington included Zach McIntyre (79th, 29:24.4), Kody Ahrens (80th, 29:27.3), Codi Wiersema (131st, 30:05.2), Cody Feisel (144th, 30:33.9), Justin Ayres (150th, 31:06.8) and Joseph Landon (176th, 37:06.3).

Cornerstone won the men’s 8K race with 63 points followed by Taylor (83), Aquinas (92), Marian (133), Madonna (145), Goshen (157), Saint Xavier (193), Indiana Tech (211), Grace (268), Bethel (272), HU (288), Robert Morris (297), Spring Arbor (315) and IU Northwest (445).

In the women’s 5K, the Foresters started with five runners but ended with four so no team score was registered. Bianca Tisdale turned in a 21:08.0 for 109th place to lead HU. Aspen Dirr finished in 21:20.0 for 120th place. Claiming 152nd place in 22:09.7 was Rachael Smelser while MacKenzie Bobeck ran a 23:49.1 for 180th place.

Coach Miller’s crew is back in action in two weeks to compete in the NAIA Great Lakes Challenge hosted by Aquinas College on October 21.

VOLLEYBALL

October 9, 2017 Sports Comments Off on VOLLEYBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Lancers of Grace College played spoiler to HU’s homecoming by sweeping the Forester volleyball team (-18, -21, -24) Friday night at Platt Arena. It’s the Foresters’ second loss to Grace (14-9, 7-4) this season as they drop to 10-13 overall, 5-7 league play.

With six regular season CL matches remaining, Huntington is sitting in sixth but remain in the hunt for a top four finish in the final standings as just one game separates spots 4-6.

The Lancers held a lead throughout set one and most of the second set before the Foresters kept things close in the final set. The match featured 16 ties and four lead changes with 13 of those ties and three of those lead changes coming in the final set.

Coach Shondell summed it up well. “This was a match we needed to win and we didn’t come out of the gate like we knew that.”

As a team, HU registered 36 kills and a .109 hitting percentage while their visitors recorded 43 kills and a .207 hitting percentage. It was another balanced attack for the Foresters with Danielle Gurwell finishing with a team-high eight kills. Josie Beaver and Haley Longley tallied seven kills apiece while Lauren Cresse added six.

Jenna Tacosik spearheaded the offense by handing out 31 assists. Kate Cobb posted 20 digs. Ariene Butler and Mikayla Carpenter collected 13 digs each.

“We’re trying new things and having some growing pains with that, but need to limit our errors a lot more,” said Shondell.

The Foresters head to Goshen on Wednesday for a 7:00 p.m. clash with the Maple Leafs.
