Box Score

Meadville, Pa. –
 Brian Graham scored his first goal of the season with less than a minute to play in double overtime to give his Allegheny College Gators a 3-2 win over the Oberlin College men’s soccer team on Wednesday night. 

The Yeomen, who seem to have been snake-bitten for most of the season, once again ran into some touch luck on this night. Oberlin controlled the run of play throughout the game, evident by a 25-12 advantage in shots and 8-3 edge in corner kicks. 

Furthermore, OC had a season-high 17 shots on goal, but Gators keeper John Lichina was lights out as he made 15 saves on the night. 

“I can’t begin to tell you how frustrating this is,” Head Coach Blake New said. “We worked our butts off all game and to not get the result we should have had really hurts.”

The Gators got on the board just 4:11 into the contest, but Justin Griffiths would add the equalizer at the 22:21 mark with an assist coming from Alen Cisija.

With less than 13 minutes left in regulation, Allegheny (7-5-3, 3-1-1 NCAC) would reclaim the lead, but Griffiths would add his second goal of the game and sixth of the season with just over two minutes to play to force the extra time. It was rookie Joe Graybeal who provided the helper on this goal. 

During the overtime periods, Oberlin triggered five total shots with one of its best chances at the end of the first overtime coming off the foot of Cisija, but Lichina denied it. 

Oberlin had another promising chance in the second overtime off a corner kick opportunity, but Ari Schwartz’s attempt was blocked by a Gators’ defender.

Zach Lipshultz made three saves, including one in the second overtime.

Oberlin (4-8-1, 1-1-1 NCAC) will look to bounce back when it plays host to Wittenberg University on Saturday night at 7 p.m

 Oberlin trails the all-time series 1-12-1

Last Meeting Against the Little Giants
: Oberlin lost to Wabash 41-9 on October 31, 2009 at Savage Stadium. 

Last Time out for the Yeomen
: Lost to Case Western Reserve University 48-36 (10/9/10)

Series Information ... 
Oberlin trails the all-time series against the Little Giants 1-12-1 … The Little Giants have left victorious 12 straight times against the Yeomen, with the last Oberlin win coming in the first meeting between the schools in 1945, when the Yeomen upended Wabash 32-7 … The lone tie came two years later when the schools battled to a 7-7 stalemate … In the 2009 matchup, Oberlin played arguably their best half of football to that point in the season as they trailed the nationally ranked Little Giants only 7-3 at halftime … Wabash, however, came storming out of the locker room to leave Savage Stadium with a 41-9 victory … Freshman wide receiver Robin Witjes earned Co-Heisman Club Player of the Game honors as he accounted for 181 total yards with 39 yards receiving, 103 kick return yards and a 39-yard touchdown pass to Adam Niec … The defense was led by Co-Heisman Club Player of the Game Solomon Turner, who led the Yeomen with a career-high 14 tackles … The Yeomen defense also finished with a season-best seven tackles for a loss in the game, including three sacks.

Scouting the Little Giants …

The Little Giants come into Saturday’s matchup following a tough 24-20 loss to Washington University … Wabash, however, is currently outscoring their opponents 157-79, averaging just over 31 points per game (2nd in NCAC), while only giving up 15.8 points (3rd in NCAC) … Wabash is led by sophomore quarterback Chase Belton, who is completing 66 percent of his passes and has also rushed for 240 yards on three touchdowns … Belton’s top target is junior wideout Jonathan Horn who has hauled in 33 catches for 502 yards and four of Belton’s eight touchdown passes … Horn is averaging over 100 yards receiving per game, good for third best in the conference … Defensively, the Little Giants are led by senior linebacker CJ Gum and junior defensive back Sam Smith … Gum leads the team with 39 total tackles and five tackles for a loss … Smith leads a stout secondary with two interceptions to go along with four pass breakups and two blocked kicks.

Steel Toe … 

Senior placekicker Zach Richard has been fantastic this season at getting the Yeomen points once they enter opponent territory … Last week against Case, Richard converted a career long 41-yard field goal at the end of the first half to bring the Yeomen within 35-30 at halftime … Richard is now 4-of-4 on field goal attempts for the season … However, Richard and the rest of the special teams will need to be at the top of their game this week as Wabash has already blocked seven kicks in only five games this season.

Controlling the Clock … 

The Yeomen offense has been great at sustaining long drives to wear down opposing defenses … Oberlin currently sits atop the NCAC in time of possession as they are controlling the ball for over 33 minutes per game … With the potent Wabash offense on the sideline, ball control may once again be the best defense against the Little Giants on Saturday. 

Eaton Quarterbacks … 
Sophomore defensive end Clay Eaton earned NCAC Player of the Week honors following his career day against the Spartans last Saturday … The Findlay, Ohio native racked up a career high eight tackles to go along with four sacks, three tackles for a loss, and a forced fumble against Case … His four sacks tie Chris Pisani for second most in a single game in school history, trailing only Sam Hobi who registered five in a game in 2001 … Eaton currently sits at second in the NCAC with five sacks on the season averaging one per game … Look for Eaton to make a huge impact on the game as he will look to stifle the Little Giant passing attack.

Early and Often … 
The Yeomen and Little Giant offenses currently sit second and third in the conference in most offensive categories including scoring offense, total offense, and passing offense … On the flip side, Wabash sits among the league leaders on defense as well ranking third in both scoring defense and total defense, while the Yeomen sit at the bottom of the conference giving up nearly 31 points per game and 414 yards of total offense … The Little Giants are dominating opponents in the first quarter of games … In five games, Wabash is shutting opponents out in the first quarter … However, it was the same situation last week against the Spartans, but the Yeomen didn’t let that prevent them from scoring 21 first-quarter points … Look for the Yeomen offense to get off to a quick start this week as well as they will need to score early and often if they want to snap their 12-game skid against Wabash.

Stopping the Big Play …

Although most of Case’s scores came from within the redzone, the Spartans utilized the big play to get into the redzone against the Yeomen defense … Against the Spartans, the Yeomen gave up seven plays that covered 20+ yards including two that covered over 40 yards … They also had five scoring drives that lasted 1:35 or less … If the Yeomen want to stop the potent Little Giant offense, they will need to prevent the big play, especially that of Jonathan Horn, their outstanding wide receiver.

Oberlin, Ohio – Two of Oberlin’s 1,000 point scorers combined to propel the Gold squad past the Crimson 101-83, in the annual Oberlin Men’s Basketball Alumni game this past Saturday. Maurice Elrod '02 poured in a game-high 22 points to pace the home team in an exciting come-from-behind victory.

The Crimson team came out of the gates fast as they opened up a 12-4 lead just minutes into the game. The visitors received early contributions from Matt Godwin '09Chris Broussard '90Jon MacDonaldAdrian Schaffer '87 andKingsley Ewenike '08. In the early going it appeared as though the balanced attack would prove to be a tough test for the formidable Gold team.

Thanks to sharp shooting from Jordan Beard '09, a couple of driving buckets from DeWayne Evans, and some “will not be denied” offense from Elrod, the Gold squad came roaring back. Most of the first half was played on the offensive end as both teams traded baskets. The highlight of the half came courtesy of Quinton Spencer '07 whose three-quarter court heave went in at the halftime buzzer, giving the Crimson squad a slim 47-46 lead.

Godwin scored 10 of his team-high 18 in the second frame, but the Crimson team fell cold from the perimeter as the half wore on. The Gold team came to life in the second frame led by the fearless trio of Elrod, Beard and Evans. These three golden grads combined for 62 of their teams’ 101 points. Evans led all players in the game shooting a blistering 8 for 11 from the field, while the games’ youngest graduate,  Beard knocked down 5-of-10 triple tries. Cam Leverett and Elvis Francois '08 also combined to hit five threes for the Gold team who buried a total of 14-of-37 attempts from behind the arc.

Head Coach Patrick Bernhard said, “with guys like Cory [Hodge] '92Rick [Washington] '92Ben [Alschuler] and George [Smith] '87 doing the work in the trenches, things really opened up for our sharp shooters today. Our super trio was fun to watch, but we got it done because of the dirty work these four guys accomplished. We got a little bloody, super sweaty, and thankfully no tears, but that’s what it takes to get it done, and that’s what we did.”

Also attending the game were Omari Hall '09Al Wellington '70, Fern Taylor '87, Miguel Curl, and Johnny Hawkins '84.

OC also got strong offensive contributions from Laura Jessee and Anna Frackman as they combined for 26 kills. Setter Liz Wong had the offense clicking on all cylinders as she dished out 52 assists on the night. 

The defensive effort was also outstanding as Oberlin recorded 101 digs in the match. Chinwe Okona led the way with 21, while Anna Frackman and Maggie Jacobson would add 20 and 19, respectively. 

“We got great effort from everyone on the team tonight and were able to come away with a big win,” Head Coach Carey Cavanaugh said.

In the third game Oberlin trailed 18-14, but Lizzie Orfaly came off to bench to serve and spearheaded a comeback. She led the Yeowomen to five straight points – including one service ace – to get them right back in the match. 

“I can’t say enough about Lizze’s play tonight and they way she able to get us in position to win was truly awesome,” Cavanaugh added.
