Foresters come from behind

After giving up a goal in the first minute of play, the Foresters rallied to scored two first half goals of their own and then held on for the 2-1 win over Asbury College.
Asbury took advantage when HU failed to close down at the top of the 18 and got the early score 34 seconds into the contest. The Foresters quickly regrouped and began to win back some of the momentum. At the 10 minute mark, Andrew Wust centered the ball and Marc William equalized the game with a rocket from 25 yards out.

HU then took the lead with eight minutes to go in the half on a Wust shot that glanced off the post and into the back of the net. The Foresters came up with several scoring chances in the second half, forcing Asbury's keeper to come up with several huge saves to keep the Eagles within striking distance.

HU keeper, Kevin Keske recorded 10 saves on the day as did Brown of Asbury.

"When we decided to control tempo and use our midfield, we created plenty of scoring opportunities," said Coach Lawson. “After our poor start I was pleased that we did not panic, showed character and fought hard to get the lead before half."

The win moves the Foresters to 5-3 on the season.
