Our quick review of the Top 25 matches from Sunday features two contests that required second half determination to earn the win.
Centre’s 2-1 upset of No. 15 Emory outshines the rest on Sunday. Junior Cameron Miller’s goal at the 11:00 mark of the first half put Centre up 1-0 only to see Emory answer in the 29th minute by Carl Credle’s volley into the back of the net to tie the game at 1. Sophomore Jacob Trumbull’s goal in the 76th minute proved to be the difference as Emory fell to 4-2 on the season. Centre outshot Emory 11-5 in the match including 5-1 in the decisive second half.
Elsewhere, No. 3 Ohio Wesleyan survived a scare against Berry College. The Bishops scored twice in the second half including Colton Bloecher’s game winner at the 85:14 mark to rally for a 2-1 victory and move to 7-0. Ohio Wesleyan held a 25-6 edge in shots.
No. 10 Loras scored early (2:57), late (85:18) and plenty in-between in their 5-0 shut out of St. John’s at the Rock Bowl.
No. 23 Luther scored three unanswered goals in the second half and held on late to defeat St. Olaf 3-2 to hand the Oles their first loss of the season. No. 25 Augsburg rebounded from their first loss of the season with a 1-0 victory at Minnesota-Morris. Edi Beccera’s 22nd minute goal was the difference.
And UW-Oshkosh remained unbeaten at 4-0-3 with a 2-1 double overtime victory over Wartburg. Faisal Bah scored at the 108:27 mark off an assist from Tony Starnes to lift the Titans.
