“We had our chances, but just made too many mistakes and didn’t play Yeomen football today,” Head Coach Jeff Ramsey said. “We can’t turn the ball over like we did, but give the guys credit for battling to the end. Now it is time for us to go back to work on the practice field and correct these mistakes.” 

Coming off an impressive performance against the Lords, quarterback Josh Mandel was held in check as he finished 13-for-23 for 160 yards and two scores – both of which went to Ryan Harvey. Harvey caught five balls for 90 yards. For the second straight game OC also struggled on the ground with just 41 yards rushing. 

Both teams looked very stagnant on offense during the first quarter, but Oberlin was unable to capitalize as Mandel was picked off on the first three possessions for the Yeomen.

The Scots finally posted the first points of the game with four minutes left in the second quarter when Robert Flagg busted off a 20-yard TD run. 

On the opening drive of the third quarter, Wooster would make it 14-0 on a 35-yard hook-up between Richard Barnes and Jordan McIntyre. 

However, the Yeomen wouldn’t go down without a fight as they took advantage of a short field which resulted in seven points when Mandel and Harvey would connect from 16 yards out to put Oberlin right back into the game.

Unfortunately, the momentum was short-lived as on the ensuing possession Flagg ripped off a 58-yard TD run of the first play from scrimmage. 

Once again the Yeomen would respond with a 9-play, 62-yard drive in 4:18 that ended in another Mandel-to-Harvey score – this time for 17 yards away to make it a 21-14 game with 2:52 left in the third. 

In the fourth quarter the Scots controlled the clock and would add a field goal and late touchdown. On Oberlin’s first possession of the frame they would turn the ball over downs as the Wooster defense stopped them twice on both 3rd-and-4th and 1 on the Scots’ 35-yard line. 

Matt Richard led the Yeomen defense with 12 tackles, while Derrick Dennisadded nine in the loss. 

The Yeomen return to action next week at Hiram College. Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

Oberlin women's soccer 

Continued from A Page

After CMU scored at the 8:06 mark, Oberlin answered back just seconds later as Ryann McChesney sent in a shot from the top of the box into the top left upper 90 of the goal. The score would remain tied at one at the break. 

However, in the second half the Tartans were able to gain control as they scored four goals within 12 minutes to put the game out of reach. 

First-year Charlotte Istel would net her first-career goal in the 77th minute as she sent a shot from the far side that sailed over the keeper’s head into the back post. 

Rachael Bandeira made six saves for the Yeowomen. CMU finished with a 22-15 edge in shots and had an 8-5 advantage on corner kicks. 

Oberlin returns to action on Tuesday night when it plays host to Heidelberg at 7 p.m. Fans should note that game was originally scheduled to be at Heidelberg, but will now be played at Fred Shults Field

Hiram Football

Continued from A Page

Hiram would take little time scoring on its first possession of the first quarter going 57 yards in five plays that took 1:43 and ended in a 28-yard TD pass play from sophomore quarterback Brendan Rehor (Bay Village/Bay) to Campbell at the 13:17 minute mark to give the Terriers a 7-0 lead.  The lone TD would be the only points of the quarter.

Denison cut the lead to four points with a 30-yard field goal by Kevin Scneider in the second quarter that capped a 13-play, 76-yard drive making the score 7-3.  Hiram went on to score 10 unanswered points in the period including Campbell’s second TD reception of the game on a nine-yard pass play that was part of a 10-play, 65-yard drive following the Big Red score.  The Terriers also added a 35-yard field goal by sophomore Luke Russo (Strongsville/Bedford Chanel) as time expired, resulting in a 17-3 lead at the break.

In the third quarter, the Big Red received the opening kick and scored on a one-yard TD run by Sam Fioroni to narrow the deficit to 17-10 with 12:40 left to play.  Hiram answered the Denison score with a TD of its own thanks to a 15-yard TD pass from Rehor, his third of the game, to freshman running back Caleb Jones (Lake Placid, Fla./Lake Placid) to extend the lead back to 14 points, 24-10, heading into the fourth quarter.

Denison pulled to within a TD once again with its first score of the final quarter at the 8:46 mark on a 12-yard TD pass from quarterback Max Paulus to Jeff Cochran, making the score 24-17.  On Hiram’s ensuing possession, the Terrier drive would consume most of the remaing time in the quarter, but would be forced to give the ball back to the Big Red with just under a minute left in the game.  Dension then threw three incomplete passes, but a personal foul by Hiram on the third incompletion, gave the Big Red new life with a new set of downs.  Denison then went the remaining length of the field in two pass plays, including a 29-yard TD completion from Paulus to Braden Layer to tie the game at 24-24 with 14 seconds left and sent the game into overtime. 

In the overtime period, Denison would get the ball first and take the lead on a 13-yard TD run by Fioroni to give the Big Red their first lead of the game at 31-24.  Hiram would have a chance to even the score, but the Terriers would not find the endzone ending the game resulting in 31-24 overtime win for the Big Red.

Both offenses recorded impressive performances with a combined 961 yards of total offense.  Dension finished the game with 545 yards of offense (190 rushing and 355 passing) as Hiram totaled 416 yards of offense (93 rushing and 323 passing).

Individually for Denison, Fioroni led the ground attack with a game-high 200 yards on 22 carries and two TD.  Paulus finished the game 27-of-46 for 355 yards with two TD and three interceptions.  Cochran led the Dension wideouts with five catches for 68 yards and a score.  Layer caught four passes for a team-best 75 yards and a TD. 

 Defensively, Alex Sycer led the team in tackles with 11, including a tackle for loss, followed by Scott Baird with 10 stops.

Hiram was led by Campbell who finished with game-highs and single-game records of 15 catches for 217 yards in addition to his two TD.  Rehor had his strongest performance so far this season completing 32-of-46 passes for 323 yards and three TD.  Rehor also led the Terriers in rushing with 63 yards on 12 carries. 

 Defensively, senior linebacker Stefhen Offutt (Twinsburg) tallied a career and game-high 12 tackles, including a half sack.  Junior Jarrod Lewis (Petersburg/Springfield Local) also recorded double-figure tackles with a career high 10 stops with 1.5 sacks and 2.5 tackles for loss.

Hiram will host Oberlin College on Saturday, Sept. 25 at Henry Field.  The game will be part of Homecoming Weekend with kickoff scheduled for 1 p.m.
