With under four minutes to play, HU’s Andrew Wust took a pass from Marc William and sent it home to break a 1-1 tie and lift the Foresters to a 2-1 victory over Franklin College.
HU grabbed the early lead 20 minutes into the first half when Brad Kunze intercepted a pass at the top of the 18 and found Joel Sanders in the box for the score. Franklin took advantage of a Forester turnover deep in their half and evened the score just before the half ended.
HU controlled play throughout the second half and finally got the game-winner late on Wust’s score. Forester keeper Matt Boyer recorded five saves in the match. HU outshot the Grizzlies 18-15.
“I was pleased that we showed solid perseverance in getting the results,” said Coach Lawson. “Whenever you can pull out a victory in the closing minutes of a match, it is always a boost for the team.”
With the win, HU improves to 2-1 on the season.
