FOR RELEASE
2006-09-02
Playing before the home crowd for the first time this season, Huntington (2-1) knocked off the Franklin College Grizzlies 3-1. The Foresters maintained possession on the ball and used their speed on the flanks to earn the victory.
Joel Sanders got HU on the board first by scoring on a penalty kick 25 minutes into the game. The Grizzlies evened up the match five minutes into the second half, but Sanders again put the Foresters ahead with his second score midway through the period. Andrew Wust put it out of Franklin's reach with HU's third goal off an assist from James Holliday with just two minutes remaining.

"This is a solid result today," said Coach Lawson. "Our composure improved as the game progressed, we generated 18 shots on goal, and we were able to beat Franklin - something we have failed to do the past two years.
