Oberlin LAX 

Continued from A Page

Oberlin found itself down 2-0 in the early going, but the Yeomen came roaring back with four straight goals in a two-minute span. The first came out of the stick of Connor Jackson with seven seconds left in the opening quarter. Hake and Erik Strand would cash in two man-up goals within the first minute of the second and Holmes followed moments later with his first goal of the day. 

The Yeomen went into the locker room with a 4-3 lead, but goals by Holmes and Daniel Fineman extended the Yeomen cushion to three. 

Once again the Cardinals would fight back to get within one, but Hake and Alex Jacobs would make it an 8-5 game going into the fourth.

The two teams would trade a pair of goals in the fourth with the OC scores coming courtesy of Hake. 

Sophomore Glen Gerbush had another fine day in the cage as he made 15 saves and scooped up five groundballs. 

Oberlin out-shot Otterbein 40-35 and won the groundball battle 47-38. OC also won 13 of the game’s 20 face-offs. Eli Clark-Davis spearheaded the effort with 12 victories.

Lead-off homers in both the first and second innings gave Ohio Northern a 2-0 lead, but the Raiders rallied with three runs in the third as Matt Tracy (PIttsburgh/Central Catholic) and Connor Nell (Powell/Olentangy) had back to RBI doubles followed by an RBI single from Kyle Von Dukye (Medina/Medina).

The Polar Bears did not take long to answer as they scored three in the bottom of the third to retake the lead, 5-3.

Mount Union came back again, this time in the fifth inning on a two-out RBI double from Ty Wood (Hudson/Hudson) tied the game at 5-5 but the Raiders got no closer.

Beau Smith (Fredrick, MD/Fredrick) took the loss (3-1) as the only hit he allowed in 3.1 innings of work in relief came in the decisive sixth inning.

Kevin Sigg also only allowed one hit in 1.1 innings of relief to get the win for ONU.

In the nightcap, Mount Union was held to seven hits and stranded 12 base runners in a 6-1 loss.

Justin Good allowed only four hits over the first six innings to get the win as four Polar Bears combined to not allow an earned run.

Ohio Northern chipped away with a two-run first and then single runs in the second, fourth, fifth and sixth innings.

Mount Union pitcher Cody Colly (Massillon/Massillon Washington) struck out six but allowed six runs on 10 hits to fall to 4-3 on the season.
