Men’s soccer picks up a win
Despite struggling to score all game, Oberlin men’s soccer team turned up victorious Sunday afternoon as they defeated Anderson University 1-0 in overtime.
With 10:15 left in the second half, junior goalkeeper Clayton Combe made an impressive save to prevent Anderson’s forward Adam Bastin from giving his squad the lead. Back and forth, both the Yeomen and Anderson found it difficult to score as the game came to an end.
In overtime with 7:18 left in the match, junior David Wilson scored on a crucial assist from sophomore Sam Zackheim to give the Yeomen their third win of the season.
“We took care of the opportunities to score and we got the job done,” said Head Coach Blake New. “I often talk about the details throughout the game, and we took care of them today.”
“I was happy to just find enough energy to score and get the job done,” said Wilson. “Now I’m excited about getting ready for conference play next weekend.”
The Yeomen are now 3-3-1 going into next week. Their next game comes at home
against Muskingum College on Wednesday at 4:30 p.m. On Saturday, conference play
starts with an opener against Wooster College.
