ND-Walsh game preview

ntinued from A Page

Saturday on the gridiron, the Falcons may well be facing their toughest foe
of their inaugural-season schedule. Walsh came into the season ranked No.
16 in the NAIA Preseason Coaches’ Poll. With two wins by a combined score
of 101-7 in tow, the Cavaliers come to town this week as the No. 10 team in
the nation. WU has racked up 578 rushing yards in their two lopsided victories (63-7 over Kentucky

Wesleyan, 38-0 over Quincy-Ill.). The Cavaliers have averaged 6.1 yards per carry. On defense, they have yielded just 364 total yards and have held opponents to a 23 percent (7-of-31) success rate on third downs.

NDC returns home after the program’s first win -- a 14-10 victory over Lindsey Wilson (Ky.) on Sept. 4 -- and on the heels of a 38-0 loss to Fairmont State (W. Va.) a week ago. Saturday’s game marks the second of five home games for Notre Dame this season. The 1 p.m. tilt also represents the Falcons’ only home game in a six-week period -- NDC will play five road games between Sept. 4 and Oct. 9.

The Falcons-Cavaliers match-up is the first of three intra-Ohio meetings for Notre Dame this season.

The Blue & White will also face Central State (Oct. 2 in Wilberforce) and Urbana (Nov. 13 at home).

“I am so proud of the people on this team, and for the people who have come before them, as everyone who has been involved in this program since I have been here has played a key factor in helping get us to this point,” Head CoachRay Appenheimer said. “Now we need to continue to work hard and build from here to achieve even bigger and better things.” 

The Yeomen are coming off an impressive performance at the GLCA Championships as they won the eight-team event with 55 points. OC had all five of its placers finish within the top 19 spots in the 126-runner field. 

Oberlin will look to stay strong when its returns to action on September 25 at the Carnegie Mellon Invite.

“I totally believe we are a top-20 team,” Head Coach Ray Appenheimer said. “We just haven’t gone up against some of the upper echelon teams yet so far this season and I believe that hurt us a little in this latest poll. However, in the coming weeks that will all change as the level of competition at the reminder of the meets will get significantly tougher.”

Oberlin is coming off a second-place showing at the GLCA Championships in which it claimed three out of the top four spots and had all five of its placers finish 21st or better. In just her second collegiate meet, first-year Molly Martorella finished second behind two-time All-America teammate Joanna Johnson, while sophomore Sara Terashima checked in fourth. 

Oberlin will look to rebuff some of its critics when it returns to action on September 25 at the Carnegie Mellon Invite.
