Wartburg, 2

Loras, 1

 

The Wartburg Knights sandwiched goals around the halftime intermission in Waverly on Saturday night to hand the then-#4-ranked Duhawks, 2-1. The loss snapped a ten-game IIAC regular season winning streak for Loras. 

 

The Duhawks won the overall shot total (17-14) but the attempts on target was 7-6 in favor of the hosts. Paris Martins scored 90 seconds before the break and Chris Nothnick 90 seconds after to give the Knights a 2-0 lead. Tim van den Bergh cut the lead in half with 20 minutes to play when he tucked a ball in the side netting.

 

The Duhawks offered three more shots on the Wartburg goal but came up empty as they threw attackers into the Wartburg 18-yard box.

 

Dylan Milkent made five saves in the loss.

  

Loras, 5

St. Mary's, 0

 

The Duhawks made a midweek non-conference trip to Winona, Minnesota to take on St. Mary's on Wednesday night. Loras was back in the win column thanks to five goals from five different players (and four different countries).

 

Loras controlled the game with a 22-6 advantage in shots, opening the scoring in the 22nd minute courtesy of Kevin Cavers. Five minutes before halftime United Kingdom native Alex Bradley found himself on the end of a Jimmy Ralph cross – which he headed home for the 2-0 lead.

 

The second half scoring started in the 53th minute when Dutchman Tim van den Bergh scored his fourth goal of the season on a Johnny Rummelhart assist. Eight minutes later sophomore Sam Koenig put in his first goal of 2013 and first of his career. Eight minutes after that, Pat Langan connected with Alejandro Cosmopolis for the Peruvian's second strike of 2013.

 

Next up for the Duhawks is a Saturday trip to Storm Lake to play Buena Vista (3-9, 0-3).
