The Dragons scored three goals in the second half and Ashland’s Danny Lusheck (Cincinnati, Ohio/St. Xavier) scored with two seconds remaining.

The Eagles missed the GLIAC Tournament for the first time in the 4-year history of the event. They won the last three GLIAC regular season titles and are the defending tournament champions. The Eagles lose five seniors from those championship teams.


Findlay Oilers

The University of Findlay was defeated 3-1 by Lake Erie College on Friday, Oct. 28 in Findlay, Ohio. Findlay then fell to Ashland University 4-1 in the final game of the season on Sunday Oct. 30 in Findlay, Ohio. The loss ends Findlay's season at 3-13-1 overall with a 1-10-1 mark in GLIAC play.



Lake Erie Storm  

Lake Erie went 1-1 on the week and fell a point short of qualifying for the GLIAC Tournament as it defeated Findlay, 3-1, and fell to Tiffin, 1-0.  The Storm finished the season .500 in both overall and in GLIAC play, going 8-8-2 overall and 5-5-2 in the GLIAC. It was by far Lake Erie’s most successful season in its fourth year as a member of NCAA Division II and second in the GLIAC, as first-year Head Coach Davie Carmichael took over a squad which went 0-12 in GLIAC play a season ago.  Against Findlay, The Storm struck first in the 13th minute on a beautiful individual effort from freshman Cory Bucur (Bedford, Ohio/St. Peter Chanel)  as he found the bottom left corner of the goal from 30 yards out and he would seal the game late with his second goal of the game. Sophomore Danny Eborall (Sheffield, England/Averett University) also scored his team-high seventh goal of the season.  Against Tiffin, a second half penalty kick for the Dragons was the lone score, it was the last game as a member of the Storm for two team members.



Northwood Timberwolves

Northwood went 1-1 last week, defeated No. 22 Saginaw Valley State 3-2 before falling at 4-1 at Notre Dame (Ohio) … the Timberwolves end the regular season 8-4-3 overall … NU finished the year 6-3-3 in the GLIAC and will be the No. 3 seed in the upcoming GLIAC Tournament … the Timberwolves finished the year tied with Ohio Dominican, but the Panthers will be the No. 2 seed in the event based on ODU going 1-0-1 against Northwood … NU was ranked No. 4 in the NCAA Midwest Regional Poll last week – before Northwood’s win over second-ranked SVSU … freshman Joey Censoni (Rochester, Mich./Adams) netted his first career goal against Saginaw Valley … his goal with just under three minutes remaining proved to be the game-winner.




Ohio Dominican Panthers

ODU concluded the regular season with a pair of key home regional non-conference wins, shutting out former AMC foe Urbana 3-0 on Tuesday evening and rallying for a 3-2 come-from-behind win on Sunday’s Senior Day against Walsh. Three Panthers tallied scores this past week, including a pair of multi-goal efforts by juniors Andrew Edler (Hilliard, OH) and Tommy Glenn (Pataskala, OH), while senior Felix Darko (Reynoldsburg, OH) recorded one goal in each contest. Edler led the team with five points behind a pair of second half scores on Tuesday and an assist on Glenn’s first score on Sunday. Glenn’s first score in the 71st minute helped spark a comeback that saw ODU turn a 2-0 deficit into a 3-2 lead in just under a 10-minute span as Darko notched the equalizer off a loose ball in the 76th minute and Glenn recorded his first game-winner in the 80th minute. Their largest come-from-behind win of the year extends the Panthers win streak to a season-best three games. Sophomore Duncan Campbell (Hilliard, OH) recorded the first multi-assist game of his career on Sunday, helping on both of Edler’s scores and moving him into a tie for the team lead with five. Up next, ODU will head to University Center, Michigan and the campus of Saginaw Valley State for the GLIAC Tournament, beginning this Thursday, Nov. 3. The second-seeded Panthers will take on third-seeded Northwood (Mich.) in the first semi-final, beginning at noon.



Saginaw Valley State Cardinals

The Saginaw Valley State University men’s soccer team split their final weekend of regular season play, falling to Northwood University 3-2 on Thursday (10/27) and defeating Malone University 2-1 on Saturday (10/29) in overtime. Saginaw Valley took the early lead from the Timberwolves but were unable to hold onto it, as Northwood would come back and score two goals. The Cardinals scored late in the second haf to knot the score when Zach Walega scored his first goal of the weekend, but it was not enough as Northwood would claim the 3-2 victory. Saginaw Valley would battle from behind against Malone scoring the tieing goal in the first half of play sending the game into overtime. Walega found the back of the net for the second time in the weekend when he beat the keeper off a pass from Lachlan Savage. With the win Saginaw Valley ended their regular season with a 12-3-3 overall record. The Cardinals will return to action Thursday (11/3) when they take on Tiffin in the first round of the GLIAC tournament. Game time is scheduled for 2:30 pm.
