The Game Story:
DELEWARE, OH - Sophomore midfielder Spencer Schnell (Dublin/Jerome) scored a goal and set up another less than a minute later, breaking a 4-4 tie and starting Ohio Wesleyan on its way to a North Coast Athletic Conference win over Wooster on Friday evening at Selby Stadium.

Junior midfielder Pat Bassett (Naperville, Ill./North) and Wooster's Pat Henderson traded goals twice during the first 5-plus minutes of action, and the Bishops broke that 2-2 tie as Schnell scored, then found senior attacker A.J. Pellis (Edmonton, Alberta/St. Francis Xavier) for a man-up goal and a 4-2 Bishop lead midway through the first quarter.

Wooster battled back with a goal by Eric Johnson, then tied the game at 4-4 on Matt Ranck's score early in the second period.

Schnell broke the tie with an unassisted goal late in the second quarter, and just 26 seconds later, found Bassett for a score that gave Ohio Wesleyan a 6-4 halftime lead.

Ohio Wesleyan added goals by Schnell and freshman attacker Edwin Foster (Medfield, Mass./Avon Old Farms (Conn.)) exactly a minute apart during the third, and extended the margin to 9-4 on Bassett's goal with 3:36 left in the period.

The Fighting Scots pulled within 9-5 when Tom Herold scored in the closing seconds of the quarter, but that would be it for the Wooster offense, and junior midfielder Chris Ostrowski (Pittston, Pa./Wyoming Seminary) finished off the evening's scoring with a goal with 10:33 left in the contest.
