  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]
  • A Theatrical Rivalry with Love and Despair
    By Jay Grummel If We Were Villains has a way of making the horrifics acts of rivals and the blurry line of morals poetic. At first glance I didn’t think I’d enjoy this book as much as I did, especially with the amount of times it quoted Shakespeare. However, after diving into this dark academic […]

Men’s soccer team defeats Davidson

The BG men’s soccer team took on its head coach Eric Nichols’ old team Davidson, where he was an assistant coach for a year, and BG won against them Saturday Oct. 19 2-0.

The win advanced the Falcons record to 4-6-4 in the season. This was the first time this season the Falcons scored more than one goal in a game.

BG out shot Davidson 18-14 and also had more saves in the game 8-6.

“Obviously, I’m pleased with this result, and I’m pleased for the guys for getting a result on the road against a good opponent in Davidson,” Nichols said.

With only 5:58 minutes gone in the game, BG’s midfielder Joe Sullivan made the first goal of the game with Vald Lekarev and Sean Sikich assisting the goal.

“We wanted to get an early goal, and we pushed on and got a great one,” Nichols said. “It was a great buildup, a great cross by Vlad and a great header by Joe Sullivan.”

With 85:15 passed in the game, midfielder Danny Baraldi made the second goal for BG.

“After our initial goal, we continued to create some good chances tonight,” Nichols said. “Missing the PK early in the second half was a real test of our character. It was test to see if we could regroup and keep the pedal down. We were able to do that, and went on to get the insurance goal.”

The goals in Saturday’s game put both Sullivan and Baraldi at two goals a piece for the season.

The Falcons’ goalkeeper Michael Wiest had all eight of the saves for his team making Saturday’s game his sixth shutout of the season and was the season’s highest saves in one game.

“Credit to Mike Wiest and everyone who played in front of him for holding them off the scoreboard and limiting their chances,” Nichols said. “Again, I’m very pleased for the guys to come on the road, play against a quality team like Davidson, and get a result.”

The Falcons regular season is coming to a end with only fives games left before the Mid-American Conference tournament semifinals begin, and three of those games are against MAC teams. Out of those five games the Falcons will play in front of a home crowd for only two of those games.

BG is now preparing to get back on the road to play against Dayton on Oct. 22 at 7 p.m.
