Men's soccer revels in senior day win

RICHMOND, Ind. - Men's soccer revels in senior day win over the Franklin Grizzlies.

The first half would go scoreless but it was evident that Earlham maintained control of the progression of the game. Although Franklin took four shots in the first half, Earlham's goalie Nicola Manni only had to save one.

During the second half that command of the game would lead to a goal by Drew Fitzgibbon from a well-placed ball by Jimmy Nti-Kyremeh in the 70th minute.

Earlham's offense made Franklin's defense work overtime in this match. The Quakers had 11 shots on the goal and 15 shots total. Franklin's goalie has 10 saves.

Men's soccer now has two HCAC wins this season. Their seniors this year are Yuki Adams, Haki Johnson, Nicola Manni, Liam Ferguson and Mirza Dzanan.

Earlham has two more matches on the season beginning with Defiance on Wednesday, Oct 24.
