Weekend Sports Roundup

We’ve entered into a bit of an October lull–fall sports are not quite over and winter sports have yet to begin. This late fall calm, combined with Hurricane Sandy, which (Ed. Who?) caused Ultimate’s tournament to be cancelled, has shrunken our Sports Roundup.  But while the Roundup may be short, it’s impressive nonetheless.

Thursday:
Men’s Soccer vs. Ohio Wesleyan University: Tie 0-0

  • Because this was the playoffs, they couldn’t leave it at a tie and were forced into a shootout. OWU won 3-2 and advanced. The Battling Bishops are lauded as one of the best D3 teams in the country, and they almost didn’t get past the Lords. Even though they didn’t advance,  our boys deserve a lot of credit for their tough fight.

Saturday:
Football at College of Wooster: WIN 21-17

  • This season’s win total matches the total of the past five seasons combined. And one more win could secure the NCAC title! Essentially, our football team has gone from being the bottom feeder to a conference threat in just one season. Pretty phenomenal, right?

Men’s Swimming at Denison University: Loss 141-157
Women’s Swimming at Denison University: Loss 147.5-149.5 (SO. CLOSE.)
Men’s Rugby vs. Earlham College: WIN 26-5

Football’s last regulation game will be on Saturday, at home, and against Denison. In other words, you should all be there.

One response

  1. Everyone should go to the Football team’s final game this Saturday at 1. It is supposed to be a beautiful day and it is unbelievable what these guys have done after a 24 game losing streak coming into the year. They could win the conference!
