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.

The senior mifielders shined as Dan Genord scored Albion's first and last goals, and Jamie Kehoe and Mitch Loney each tacked on goals.

"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."

Genord, Tim Urso, Loney, and Dylan Neal scored in the second quarter as Albion seized a 4-2 lead. Kehoe's tally two minutes into the third quarter boosted the margin to 5-2.

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.
