Lake Erie College won its lone contest this week, 2-1, over Ashland University at home Sunday.  The deceive goal came with 5:59 to play as freshman defender Willy Cognee (Montreal Quebec, Canada/) scored his first career goal to reclaim the lead Lake Erie had lost four minutes earlier. Cognee took a his own throw-in, which was deflected back to him and worked around the left side, just narrowly beating the keeper and striking the far post for the key goal.
