Adrian, Mich. - Laura Jesssee continued to shine, but the shorthanded Oberlin College volleyball team didn’t have enough to get by Adrian College on Saturday afternoon as they fell to the Bulldogs in straight sets 25-18, 30-28, 25-18.

Jessee, a sophomore from Roanoke, Virginia, hit .290 in the match with 13 kills on 31 swings. Unfortunately, nobody else could really get in rhythm for the Yeowomen as they hit .078 as a team. Chinwe Okona had the second most kills on the team with just five. 

Defensively, it was Lizzie Orfaly who led the way with 18 digs. Amanda Wyskand first-year Kristen Johnson added 13 and 10 digs, respectively. 

The Yeowomen were without two of their best players in seniors Maggie Jacobson and Anna Frackman

Oberlin will look to get things going when it returns home to host Otterbein College on Tuesday night at 7 p.m.

B-W increased its lead to 14-0 with 49 seconds left in the opening quarter when its defense created a turnover. On a first-and-10 play, Heidelberg senior quarterback Andrew Miller was dropped for nine yard loss by junior defensive end Sonny Hazelwood (Elyria/ Senior), fumbled the ball at the 25 yard line, and Yellow Jacket senior All-OAC linebacker Ryan Kish (Amherst/ Steele) picked up the loose ball and ran 23 yards for a TD. Pollock’s PAT kick then made the score 14-0 in favor of B-W.

In the second quarter, B-W extended its advantge to 21-0 with 1:18 left before halftime when O’Rourke threw a 33-yard TD pass to sophomore wide receiver Aaron Manders (Toledo/ Cardinal Stritch). The TD grad was Manders second this season and the fourth thrown by O’Rourke.  Pollock’s PAT kick then capped a seven-play and 71-yard drive in 3:00.

In the third quarter, B-W increased its advantage to 28-0 when it scored on its first possession. a six-play and 55-yard drive in 2:29 when Miker scored on his second one-yard run of the day and Pollock added his fourth straight PAT boot. O’Rourke opened the drive with an 18-yard run and then Miker carried the ball of five consecutive plays, including a 24-yard run to the Student Prince two yard line on his third attempt.

Then the Student Princes began their comeback. First, freshman RB Germany Woods scored on an 11-yard run with 3:15 to play in the third stanza to cap a seven-play and 57-yard drive in 3:01 and senior PK Jesse Hawkins added the PAT kick to make the score 28-7. Following a B-W punt, Heidelberg then closed to 28-14 when it went 64 yards in nine plays with Miller scoring on a one-yard run and Hawkins adding the PAT at the 13:37 mark of the fourth quarter.

Undaunted, B-W then travelled 83 yards in 11 plays and covering 5:43 to regain a 21-point bulge at 35-14 when sophomore QB Andrew Dziak (Garfield Hts./ Maple Hts.) scored on a five-yard run and Pollock aded the PAT kick.

But Heidelberg came right back to close to 35-20 with 6:32 remaining when Miller threw a 16-yard TD pass to senior WR MIke Preston, but Hawkins kick failed. The play capped a four-play and 37-yard drive in 1:03 that was highlighted by a 38-yard kick return by Woods and a 22-yard run by Miller on the first play of the drive.

B-W was led offensively by O’Rourke and Miker. On defense, Hazelwood led the Yellow Jackets with six tackles, including 1.5 for loss and caused the fumble that led to B-W’s second TD.  In addition, senior DE Keith Darbut (Miami, Fla./ Palmetto Senior) had two QB sacks and junior safety Corey Hildreth (Massillon/ Washington) had two interceptions that both stopped Heidelberg scoring opportunities, including his final theft with 3:11 remaining in the contest.

Heidelberg was led on offense by Miller, Preston and Woods.  Miller completed 13-of-26 passes for 171 yards and a TD, but threw the two interceptions.  He also ran for 18 yards in 13 attempts, but was sacked five times and lost the critical fumble in the first quarter that Kish picked up and ran in for B-W’s second TD.  Preston led all receivers and caught 11 passes for 125 yards and a TD.  Sophomore Brad Jones led the Berg running game with 48 yards in 11 attempts.  The Heidelberg defense was led by sophomore LB Craig Sykes with 6.5 tackles, including a sack and 2.5 tackles for loss.

The Yellow Jackets are now idle until Saturday, October 2 when they host OAC rival Marietta College on Tressel Field in The George Finnie Stadium in Berea at 1:30 p.m. on “Think Pink”/ Breast Cancer Awareness Day.  B-W also is at home for its Homecoming Game versus nationally-rankedOtterbein University on Saturday, October 9 at 2:00 p.m. Both the Marietta and Otterbein games will be taped and televised by STO.

Oberlin – A shorthanded goal by senior Wyatt Hayman in at the 68-minute mark lifted the Oberlin College men’s soccer team to a 2-1 victory over Case Western Reserve on Saturday night at Fred Shults Field. 

With the win Oberlin improves to 3-5 overall and snaps a five-game losing skid. 

The Yeomen, who have had their woes finishing in the final third over the last few games, didn’t take long to get on the board on this night as Aki Goremezano finished off a corner kick opportunity just 2:50 into the game. Oliver-Miller-Farrrell, who took the corner, and Ari Schwartz# were each credited with an assist on the play as Schwartz redirected the ball to Goremezano to set him up for the shot. 

The Spartans (3-2-2) would add the equalizer in the 27th minute as Vinny Bell followed Alex King’s shot off the cross bar. 

Oberlin would go down a man at 67:22 as Miller-Farrell was issued a red card, however it was just moments later that Hayman would head in the game-winning goal off a picture perfect set-piece service into the box by Alen Cisija

Before his departure, Miller-Farrell had a prime scoring chance in the 64th minute but his rifle from 20 yards out hit square of the post. 

Making his first start of the season in goal, Chris Sundby was simply sensational as he made five saves on the night. 

The Spartans won the statistical battle with a 21-10 edge in shots and 7-4 edge in corners, but the Yeomen got them where it matters most – on the scoreboard. 

Oberlin will look to ride the momentum into Muskingum on Wednesday afternoon. The opening touch is set for 4:30 p.m.
