NSU men fall to Ft. Hays State

HAYS, Kan. — The No. 20-ranked NSU men’s soccer team was defeated 3-2 by No. 15 Fort Hays State in overtime Thursday night at FHSU Soccer Stadium.

The RiverHawks (4-2, 1-1 MIAA) lost their first league contest, despite outshooting the Tigers (6-1, 2-0) by a margin of 25-11.

Both NSU losses this season have been in overtime, and both have come in Hays as the RiverHawks lost 3-2 to Colorado Mesa Sept. 7 on neutral grounds.

Tomas Mare gave the home side the early advantage with a goal in the 27th minute off an assist from Tanner Brock.

Northeastern State entered the second half trailing for just the second time this season, but the RiverHawks would gain the lead following goals from junior midfielders Juan Gonzalez and Edgar Gonzaga.

Gonzalez’ strike came in the 56th minute with help from sophomore midfielder Jordan Schmoker. Gonzaga put the road team on top 2-1 in the 78th minute off an assist from senior midfielder Henry Wildenborg.

Fort Hays State equalized in the 83rd minute when Michael Cole put away a pass from Brock, and Mare notched the golden goal in the 102nd minute with help from Carlos Linares.

Senior goalkeeper Jordan Ladbrooke made three saves and fell to 4-2 on the year. Kent Freund stopped eight RiverHawk shots to earn the victory.

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins

  • Lindley, Tom.jpg Better police needed for college teams enticed to cheat

    The NCAA once cracked down on colleges that went too far luring top prospects, then it targeted teams that lathered players with special treatment. That was until the NCAA's get-tough approach backfired, rendering it ineffective and creating an opportunity for those who want to play dirty.

  • Really one true champion?

    I decided to spare the colleagues in front of me – and myself from making a scene – by holding back flipping my table at the Big 12 Conference Football Media Days in Dallas.
    I had become exhausted by the constant use and misrepresentation by the Big 12 with their moniker of “One True Champion.” If they are going to live with the slogan, then they need to abide by that slogan.
    Perhaps its a simple case that they are keeping constant with the poor math of the 10-team Big 12 Conference.
