Here’s the ONU sports round up

Here’s the ONU sports round up from the weekend. 

Men’s soccer
The Ohio Northern men's soccer team put on an offensive clinic Saturday night at Kerscher Stadium to extend its win streak to 10 games. The Polar Bears defeated Muskingum 8-0 to improve to 11-2-1 overall and 3-0-0 in Ohio Athletic Conference play. 

Seven different Polar Bears registered a goal. Sophomore Seth Gundlach (Wilmington) led the way with his fifth and sixth scores of the season. Senior Luke Fickenworth (Cincinnati/Anderson), junior Beelal Hasan(Worthington), senior Takashi Yuzawa (Shizouka, Japan), freshman Aaron Shelton (Ortonville, Mich./Brandon), senior Noah Bachwitz (Buffalo, N.Y./Williamsville North) and freshman Daunte George (Bellefontaine) had the other five goals.

Gundlach netted the game's first goal in the fifth minute off a feed from junior Jimmy Walkinshaw (Plymouth, Mich./Canton). Walkinshaw also assisted on the game's second goal, as he set up Fickenworth in the 10th minute. 

Hasan made it 3-0 on an assist from Levi King (Indianapolis, Ind./North Central), and Yuzawa took it in himself in the 32nd minute to cap the first-half scoring.

Gundlach — much like he did in the first half — kickstarted the Polar Bears in the second half with an unassisted score in the 53rd minute. Shelton logged his first-career goal less than a minute later off a feed from Walkinshaw. Bachwitz scored in the 61st minute off a feed from George, and Gundlach assisted on George's score in the 84th minute. 

Northern recorded 30 shots in all, while the Muskies had just two. ONU sophomore goaltender John Lombardo(Solon) had to make one save for his eighth shut out of 2019. 

The Polar Bears travel to Wilmington Wednesday. 

Women’s soccer
The Ohio Northern women's soccer team extended its season-best five-game winning streak Saturday. The Polar Bears shut out Muskingum 3-0 to improve to 9-2-2 overall and 3-0 in Ohio Athletic Conference play. 

ONU peppered Muskingum goaltender Katie Bodenmiller with 37 shots, 22 of which were on frame. Northern's senior goalie Meagan Grierson (Dayton/Miamisburg) only needed to make one save for her sixth shut out of 2019. 

Junior Jenna Fuller (Countryside, Ill./Lyons Township) had four of the 37 shots, and the one during the 29th minute found the back of the net, giving the Polar Bears a 1-0 advantage. It was her team-leading 12th score of the season.

Sophomore Caroline Goeller (Dayton/Oakwood) made it a 2-0 game in the 41st minute with her first-career goal. Junior Siena Ward (Newport Beach, Cal./Newport Harbor) put the finishing touches on the win in the 74th minute, scoring off a feed from junior Megan Breier (Plainfield, Ill./North). It was Ward's third goal of 2019 and all have all occurred in the last two contests.
