MEN’S SOCCER

November 15, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S SOCCER Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Crossroads League announced its 2017 Men’s Soccer All-conference honorees and among the list were junior Matheus Louzada and freshman Jake Erlandson.

In addition to earning First Team All-Conference accolades, Louzada was tabbed the best midfielder in the league as voted on by the Crossroads League coaches. This fall marks the first time the conference has awarded a Midfielder of the Year badge.

The Brazilian has established himself as one of the most dangerous scorers in the league as he wrapped up the season with a team-leading eight goals and eight assists for 24 points which lands him 4th among his conference peers in goals per game (.47), 2nd in assists per game (.47) and 3rd in points per game (1.41).

To date, Louzada has 16 career goals, seven of which were game-winners, to go along with 18 assists for 50 points.

“Matheus had an incredible season. He is one of those players who, at any given time, can create something special for his teammates and himself,” said Coach Lawson. “On the field he is a no nonsense player demanding the best from himself and his teammates which has been great to see develop in his game as well.

“Being named the league’s Midfielder of the Year is a deserving reward for the type of year he had. Matheus is all about winning and having this program playing at an elite level and I would say mission accomplished.”

Erlandson (Dayton Christian HS) was one of two defenders named Second Team All-Conference. As the center back, the rookie anchored a backline that gave up an average of one goal per night in league play and on the year, posted nine clean sheets, which included holding opponents scoreless over their last four contests.

The Waynesville (Ohio) native was also a threat offensively as he found back netting six times, second on the team in scoring only to Louzada.

“We knew Jake was going to make a smooth transition to the collegiate game with his grit and fearlessness which has allowed his soccer ability and soccer IQ to compete at a very high level as a freshman,” said Lawson.

“He performed at an elite level this year and it is great to see one of our defenders being recognized for the body of work our defense did. Jake helped raise the bar this season with a phenomenal nine clean sheets and a goal against average of 0.81.”

The Foresters finished fourth in the CL standings with a 5-2-5 record and advanced to the semis of the tournament before falling to Spring Arbor University in a shootout. HU wrapped up the year with an overall record of 10-4-5.

“For the first time in a couple of decades we averaged 2.0 goals per game and posted double digit wins. Out of the 19 games played this year, we got 15 results which is a great accomplishment as well,” said Lawson.

MEN’S BASKETBALL

November 15, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on MEN’S BASKETBALL Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

The Forester men’s basketball team hit the road for the first time this year to cruise to a 92-68 win over Wright State University Lake Tuesday night at the Auglaize-Mercer County YMCA. The 24-point spread is HU’s largest margin of victory to date this season.

It was a night where all of Coach Platt’s crew saw action with five Foresters logging double digits. Tyler Arens led the visitors with 25 points on 9-for-13 shooting which included knocking down three of his four three-pointers. He also corralled 12 rebounds, five of which were offensive, to enjoy game-high rebounding honors as well.

Just like Arens, Konner Platt and Mason Coverstone each canned three triples on their way to scoring 18 and 17 points respectively. Mike Bush added ten points in addition to doling out a game-best eight assists. Trevor Lockwood came off the bench to toss in ten points, grab six boards and swat two shots.

The Foresters shot nearly 57 percent from the field by going 33-for-58 for their best shooting performance of the year while limiting the Lakers to just 39.5 percent (32-for-81). HU also won the battle of the boards 40-35 but it was Wright State who took better care of the ball by committing eight turnovers to Huntington’s 17.

After playing even with their hosts through the opening ten minutes, the Foresters turned up the heat to jet out to a 47-34 advantage by halftime. The second half was more of the same as Platt’s crew outscored the Lakers by 11 to blow the game wide open for the lopsided win.

Wright State was led by Isaac Clay with 13 points off the bench. Quincy Green and Zakarius Milhouse also subbed in to score 11 and ten points respectively as the Lakers’ bench accounted for 43 of their team’s 68 points.

HU has beaten the Lakers three times over the last three years by an average of 29.3 points.

With this win, the Foresters improve to 3-3 on the year. Next up is the Terry Polston Hoops for Hope Classic hosted by Grace College over the weekend. The Foresters will face Clarke University on Friday at 4:00 p.m. before taking on Grace Bible College at noon on Saturday.

BOWLING

November 15, 2017 Sports News Comments Off on BOWLING Posted By: Joanne Green, SID

It was a good weekend for the Huntington University bowling program. Things started off with newly signed recruit Lucas Schutt bowling his first 300 game, followed by Dylan Herring signing his letter of intent to bowl for HU next season.

The Foresters rode the momentum into the Raider Classic where the varsity men rallied on Sunday to end up 6th out of 27 teams while the JV men claimed 6th out of 14 teams. Up against three of the top five teams in the country, the HU women were on fire all weekend to finish 3rd out of 25 teams.

In addition to the team’s success, the weekend was that much sweeter because Lily Rutherford and Brianna Fish earned varsity and JV individual all-tournament honors respectively.

Coach Mike Shockey was ecstatic about his team’s performance. “This was easily one of the best weekends we have had has a whole team that I can remember.”

The Forester men were led by Justin Coleman who averaged 215 over the course of the five-team games on Saturday.

“If it wasn’t for a subpar last game, Justin most likely would have earned his first all-tournament team honor,” said Shockey. “We made a few small changes with Justin’s game recently and it has really worked well for him. He was solid all weekend and made great shots when we needed them.”

Huntington ended Saturday with a five-team game total of 4,881 which left them in 10th place. Sunday was certainly a new day for the Foresters as they came out determined to make up ground on the leaders and move up the standings. They shot a score of 4120 for 20 baker games on Sunday which was the fourth highest pin fall total on the day to finish 6th – the highest finish for HU this season.

“I think Saturday night was the key to our performance on Sunday,” said Shockey. “We spent time at the hotel eating some tasty desserts and sharing stories about the team in the past. It really ended up being a really good bonding experience for the team that led to us being relaxed and ready Sunday morning.”

The JV men’s team was paced by Jordan Herring who averaged 198 for five games. Their 6th place finish is the best performance for the JV team this season.

Shockey was also pleased with the play of Jordan hails from Springfield, Ohio. “He has been putting in lots of work on his game and to see it come together at a tournament so close to home was great.
The HU women posted a score of 4,555 on Saturday for the 5th spot in the standings. After a slow start on Sunday, they turned it around to shoot a score of 3,749 for 20 baker games – enough to move into 3rd place and earn a spot in the matchplay round.

The matchplay format featured the top four teams each bowling one game on four different lanes with the top two teams moving onto the championship match. The ladies bowled well on a tough shot, but fell 18 pins short of the championship round.

“Jeff and I are really proud of the girls and their bowling this weekend,” said Shockey. “They have been gaining confidence with each tournament and hopefully this continues into the rest of the season. It was exciting watching the ladies go toe to toe with the three of the best and highest ranked teams in the country.”

Lily Rutherford had a tremendous weekend for the Foresters. She averaged a Huntington University record of 225.2 for five games to win the singles portion of the Raider Classic. The New Castle native scored a five-game total of 1,126 with games of 212, 254, 196, 227, and 237 to out average second place by 15 pins per game.

“We are all really proud of Lily and her bowling for the weekend,” said Shockey. “She absolutely dominated and really showed what she is capable of.”

Brianna Fish also had an excellent outing to win the singles portion of the JV women’s tournament. She averaged 191 for five games with scores of 169, 182, 242, 194, and 172.

“Brianna has put a lot of work into her game over the last two years and the process of making those changes are starting to pay off,” said Shockey. “Her consistency and shot making is getting better every week.”

Next up for Shockey’s crew is the National Collegiate Team Match Games in Fairview Heights, Ill., on November 25-26.
