Foresters Get Comeback Win

FOR RELEASE
2004-10-19
Down 2-1 at the half, the Foresters battled back with three second half goals to pick up the 4-2 come-from-behind win over the Indiana Wesleyan Wildcats. Two minutes into the match, IWU took the lead on a shot that appeared to be a cross from the wing, but the wind knocked it down and off the cross bar into the net. Seven minutes later, HC got the equalizer when Matt Gerlach sent a through ball to Joel Sanders for the score. The Wildcats immediately re-gained the lead when the Forester defense didn't clear a ball well and gave IWU a good look. In the second half, Luke Caldwell set up both Adrian Laird and David Callahan for goals midway through the period to take the 3-2 lead, and Callahan sealed the win with his second goal of the match off an assist from Andrew Wust with a minute and a half left to play. HC's keeper, Courtney Hamilton, finished with eight saves on the day including a few amazing stops to hold the Wildcats scoreless in the second half. "This was a promising effort put forth by the men considering the run of close games we have had the past couple weeks," said Coach Lawson. "These men deserve all the credit for their continued fight tonight." With the win, the Foresters improve to 6-7-2 on the season and 2-4-1 in the MCC.
