The wait’s over and at the mid point of the fall season, the volleyball and soccer teams have begun conference play.
The Red and Green continued their historic dominance over Rochester, Brandeis and Case Western Reserve. Some of the sets were close probably as a result of the week long break Wash. U. took prior to starting practice again last Tuesday. The next round of UAA play starting Oct. 16 will tell the story.
The men’s team snapped a six game winless streak against the Eagles with a 2-0 victory. Senior John Smelcer and the defensive unit made a huge difference with Smelcer making five saves. The Wash. U. defense kept pressure on the Eagles allowing 13 shots but only five on goal. The Bears offense produced nine shots on goal with Harry Beddo scoring the game winner and John Hengel knocking in the insurance goal. Wash. U. looks to No. 10 Carnegie Mellon this weekend.
The women’s team battled hard against the Emory Eagles giving up the first goal. Emma Brown answered with a goal of her own as freshman Clara Jacques made a career high eight saves. Defense will be key against Carnegie Mellon this upcoming weekend. The women’s team plays Division II UMSL this Wednesday and picked up their first draw of the season this weekend.
It was great to see the football time scoring several times over the weekend after being trampled against Wittenberg. The Bears have a tough opponent with unbeaten Wabash College next weekend. Congratulations to junior Jim O’Brien on passing the 1,000 yard career rushing mark. Sophomore Austin Morman continued to put the Rhodes College Lynx in a bad position whenever the Bears were forced to punt. The coverage was a lot better this weekend with the Lynx receiver being taken down without the first five yards of a reception.
