After coming close on a variety of occasions, the Foresters finally broke through with a decisive 4-0 victory over MCC foe Spring Arbor University.
HU connected on its first goal off a corner kick nine minutes into the match. Taylor Zeman sent it into the box and Brad Kunze put it in the net. At the 40:31 mark, Zeman got things started again for the Foresters with a pass to Marvin Martinez who served a through ball to Adam McLaughlin for the score. The half expired with HU holding the 2-0 lead.
Eight minutes into the second period, the Foresters sent a long ball into the box, and some miscommunication by the Cougar defenders led to an own goal giving HU a 3-0 advantage. Brad Kunze then completed the scoring with a successful penalty kick in the 69th minute.
"I'm really proud of the guys," said Coach Lawson. "They fully deserved the victory today with their ability to control the tempo of the game and the way they finished their opportunities."
HU keeper Kevin Keske tallied five saves to record the shutout. Spring Arbor out-shot the Foresters 10-7, but both teams had five shots on goal.
With the victory, the Foresters move to 4-9-2 on the season and 1-4-1 in conference play.
