Genord, Hedemark Light Up Oberlin
ALBION, Mich. – Concerned with an Oberlin College squad that scored 37 goals in its first two matches, Albion College executed its plan of playing patiently on offense to earn a 7-5 victory over the previously unbeaten Yeomen.
"Jamie was a multi-tool player for us tonight," Albion coach Jake DeCola said after his team improved to 3-2. "He ran the offense, played defense, and cleared the ball.
"We threw some things against their zone defense," DeCola added. "Our midfielders played at a high level. Our effort was great and we did a good job of playing as a team."
Oberlin got goals from Peter Paul, Alex Wagman, and Nick Lobley as the Britons were hanging on to a tenuous 6-5 lead late in the third quarter.
Genord completed the scoring with his 15th goal of the season with 8:56 left in the fourth quarter. Joel Hedemark, who produced a goal and three assists, dished out the assist on the last score.
Goalkeeper Ian Monkman gobbled up six saves.
Albion will play at home again at 1 p.m. Saturday when it challenges Concordia (Wis.) University.
