Bethel Outlasts Foresters

The Foresters took the NAIA 15th-ranked Bethel College Pilots to double-overtime, but eventually gave up the game-winner with 3:25 left in the second extra period to fall 3-2. The Pilots controlled the flow of the game and out-shot HC 16-4. Although the Foresters didn't get many opportunities, Luke Caldwell made the most of his giving HC the 1-0 lead in the seventh minute on a feed from Joel Sanders and putting the team back in front at 2-1 off an assist from Jarrod Bennett two minutes into the second half. HC's lead was short-lived as Bethel evened it up a minute later. The score remained 2-2 until the Pilots finally netted their third goal of the game late in double OT. "Bethel is a composed, technical team," said Coach Lawson. "This is one of the strongest sides I have seen in a while. I am very proud of the collective effort we put forth tonight. It is definitely a game that you come away feeling a little upset because we were so close to pulling off a major upset, but also realize that the positives should serve us well for the remainder of the season." The loss drops the men to 5-6 on the season and 1-3 in the MCC.
