Coming off a tough loss to IPFW, the Foresters bounced back to blank Bluffton University 3-0. Defender Marvin Martinez got HU on the board 35 minutes into the game with a header directly off a corner kick by Justin Brown. Fifteen minutes later George Halim found the back of the net off a beautiful combination play with both strikers at the heart of the Beaver defense allowing Halim to sneak in for the score off a Steven McKay pass. Less than three minutes later HU put the game out of reach when Taylor Zeman placed a penetrating ball in behind that Halim was able to put away for his second score of the game.

HU outshot Bluffton 17-5. “Our guys put forth a fantastic effort today. I felt like this was a decisive game that we had to have and the boys controlled tempo all match,” said Coach Lawson. “George had an excellent day finishing and our pressure and organization was great as we limited Bluffton to only a few opportunities.”
