INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. - With one regular season game remaining, the Forester men’s soccer team slipped past Marian University Wednesday evening 1-0 to move into a tie for fourth with Goshen in the league standings.  

For the Knights, it was their seventh one-goal loss of the year as they drop to 5-10 overall, 2-6 in conference play.

Huntington doubled up Marian in shots taken 12-6 and finally registered the game-winner when Valentin De Coninck served a ball into the box that Jake Erlandson got a head on for his sixth goal of the year with just over 11 minutes remaining. It’s the second straight game the freshman defender has found back netting.

Troy Hester picked up the shutout, his third of the year in goal. As a team, the Foresters have held opponents scoreless six times this fall.

“I am so proud of the boys for grinding out this result,” said Coach Lawson. “Marian is a very difficult team to break down with some weapons on the counter attack. We did a fantastic job on the defensive side of the ball for another clean sheet.”

HU wraps up the regular season with senior day on Saturday against Taylor at 2:00 p.m.

The Huntington University Foresters compete in 17 intercollegiate sports for men and women. In the past decade, Huntington has produced 38 NAIA All-America honors and 274 All-America Scholar Athlete honors. Huntington University is a comprehensive Christian college of the liberal arts offering graduate and undergraduate programs in more than 70 academic concentrations.
