Box Score

Oberlin, Ohio – The tough luck for the Oberlin College men’s soccer team continued on Saturday afternoon as they found themselves on the wrong end of 1-0 decision against Earlham College, despite out-playing the Quakers in every phase of the game. 

The Yeomen out-shot the Quakers 21-6 – including a 9-2 edge in shots on goal. Not included in that shots on goal tally were three shots that hit either the post or the crossbar. OC also triggered seven corner kicks, compared to just two for the victors. 

“We really need a way to turn our luck around,” Head Coach Blake New said. “Offensively we are just snake-bitten right now, but we also need to limit some of the mistakes we are making on defense.”

The lone goal of the game came on a defensive miscue in the 22nd minute which resulted in Ameer Yusuf having a one-on-one opportunity against Yeomen goalie Zach Lipshultz

One of Oberlin’s main scoring chances happened in the 15th minute whenAndrew Wise set a cross from the far side to a wide open Justin Griffiths in the middle of the field, but Griffiths header attempt hit square of the post. 

Oliver-Miller Farrell and Kiefer Forsch also had two attempts hit off the crossbar. 

Griffiths and Miller-Farrell led the Yeomen with five shots each in the contest. 

Oberlin will look to end its bad luck when it returns to action on October 6 for its NCAC opener against The College of Wooster. All of the action will get underway at 7 p.m. from Fred Shults Field.

Senior signal caller Andrew Miller (Dalton, Ohio / Dalton) of Heidelberg completed 29-of-46 passes for a career-best 423 yards. Miller was one completion shy of tying the single game record and threw for over 400 yards for the first time of his career. His previous best was 381 yards. He also added four passing touchdowns on the day, to go along with 27 yards on the ground.


Miller’s top threat was fellow classmate wide receiver Mike Preston (Euclid, Ohio / Euclid). Preston hauled in 15 passes, which was one shy of the single game mark, for a career-high 210 yards. It was the second straight outing that Preston has racked up triple digits in receiving yards and it was the first time he has amassed the 200-yard mark. For the game he finished with two touchdowns.


Adding depth to the offense was Mario Walton (Elyria, Ohio / Elyria) with 119 yards on eight receptions. It was the second time on the year, and his career, that Walton has eclipsed the 100-yard mark. He opened the year with a career-best 135 yards at Alma College.


Freshman Germany Woods (Cleveland, Ohio / Saint Edward) has found the end zone in all three games of his collegiate career, finishing with one versus the Cardinals. He carried the ball 13 times for 59 yards.


Scoring their first collegiate touchdowns in the setback was wide receivers James Sheahan (Painesville, Ohio / Lake Catholic) andMario Escalante (Highland Heights, Ky. / Newport Central Catholic). Sheahan finished the day with two catches for 22 yards, while Escalante had 58 yards on two catches.


Linebackers Vaughn Klein (Galloway, Ohio / Central Crossing) and Andy Fadenholz (Grafton, Ohio / Keystone), along with defensive backs Tyler Levanduski (Amherst, Ohio / Steele) and Travis Coates (Columbus, Ohio / Beechcroft) paced the defense.


Klein finished with a game-high 10 tackles followed by Fadenholz and Levanduski with 12 and 10, respectively. Fadenholz and Levanduski both recorded career-high outings for tackles. It was the second straight outing that Fadenholz has finished with double digit tackles. Coates finished with two interceptions, while Levanduski had one that was picked off at the goal line.


Heidelberg opened up the scoring on the first series of the day. Woods ran the ball in from a yard out, while Jesse Hawkins (Georgetown, Ky. / Scott County) followed with the point after for the early lead.


Otterbein scored 10 straight points capped by a one-yard Austin Schlosser run with 7:46 left in the second quarter to put the Cardinals on top 10-7. However, Heidelberg answered on its ensuing possession when Miller connected with Sheahan for a three-yard TD pass. Hawkins followed with the PAT to put the Berg back on top, 14-10.


Both sides traded scores to close the half, but Otterbein’s David Brewer missed a PAT, giving the Berg a 21-16 advantage at halftime.


Heidelberg and Otterbein battled to a 13-13 tie in the third quarter and the Berg still held a slim 34-29 lead heading into the fourth quarter.


Otterbein’s Colton Coy rushed for a two-yard touchdown to put the Cardinals on top, 35-34. A failed two-point conversion held Otterbein’s lead to just one. Heidelberg answered by marching down the field to the red zone but a fumble in the middle of the field was recovered by Otterbein to put a halt to Heidelberg’s threat.


Heidelberg’s defense came out and responded by forcing a three and out possession by Otterbein to set up a final opportunity for the Berg, but Heidelberg could not cross midfield and suffered a setback.

A season-high five turnovers by Mount Union was balanced out by a defense that forced four turnovers and held Wilmington (0-3, 0-2) to minus four yards rushing in the second half and 151 total yards.

Sophomore defensive end Charles Dieuseul (Winter Haven, Fla./Lake Region) led the unit with 10 stops, 2.0 sacks and a forced fumble.

Seaman finished 13-of-20 passing for 241 yards with those two scores and a pair of interceptions.

The Raiders got off to a slow start with a pair of turnovers in their first two possessions and the Quakers had a chance to get on the board but had a 41-yard field goal attempt blocked by senior defensive end Lambert Budzinski (Canton/Massillon Jackson). 

Lemmon then got the first score of the game on a 62-yard scamper for a score with 5:04 left in the first quarter.  After forcing a three and out, Shorts then took a punt back 68 yards for score to finish the quarter with a 14-0 lead.

Lemmon tacked on touchdowns from 10 and three yards out in the second quarter and the shutout was preserved late in the half when Wilmington blocked a Mount Union extra point attempt and returned it all the way back to the Raider two yard line before sophomore Brandon Mathie (Louisville/Louisville) made the tackle.

Shorts hauled in 39 and 38 yard touchdown strikes from Seaman on the first drives of both the third and fourth quarters, Tyler Almeida (Elyria/Elyria) converted an 18-yard field goal and Blair Skilliter (Curtice/Genoa) ran in a touchdown from two yards out for the 51-0 final.

Amelia Jarvinen led Oberlin with two shots. 

The Yeowomen will look to turn things around when they travel to Bluffton for a 4:30 p.m. showdown on Tuesday.
