Three 2nd half goals lift Foresters

The Foresters (5-9-2) showed great perseverance as they twice battled back from a one goal deficit with three goals in the second half to earn a 3-2 victory over Defiance College.
The Yellow Jackets used there weapons on top to pressure HU and it paid off as they took a 1-0 lead with just under seven minutes to play in the first half.

HU tied it up 13 minutes into the second half when Joel Sanders sent a corner kick into the box and Dustin Shafer sent it home. Defiance didn't waste any time in reclaiming the lead as they scored their second goal of the match 30 seconds later.

The Foresters picked up the intensity and were able to even the score on another corner kick as Sanders booted it in himself from the corner in the 72nd minute. Andrew Wust got the game-winner for HU when he corralled a long pass into the box from Tyler Gleason and flicked it past the Yellow Jacket keeper.

"We scored three goals in the second half for the first time this year, so I'm pleased that we kept working and didn't give up," said Coach Lawson. "We need to be better defensively against Grace on Wednesday it we are going to have a chance at postseason play."

HU's Matt Boyer recorded four saves while Defiance's Brandon Morgan had 15.
