Wittenberg vs. Oberlin
April 11, 2009
The Game Story:
SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - Sensing a tentative start to their NCAC meeting with Oberlin, Tiger junior captain Jeff Capella (Columbus, Ohio/Worthington Kilbourne) took the Red and White on his back in the second half with four goals en route to a 13-4 win.

Capella's quartet, including three in a span of less than a quarter, rejuvenated a flat Tiger team that fell behind early and felt pressure from the Yeomen in a 4-2 partial result at the intermission. The second half proved to be a complete reversal, as George Harris' men tallied six unanswered goals to quell any notion of an upset.

Partnering in the midfield with Mitch Cohagan (Pickerington, Ohio/North), who had a goal and three assists himself, Capella and the Tigers claimed their sixth win of the season, tying coach Harris' high-water mark during his Wittenberg career.

Freshman George Gion (Northfield, Ill./New Trier) got in the act with a goal and an assist on a day when the Tiger shots came from all angles in a 46-26 shooting edge for the home side.

With the remaining slate chock-full of home dates, the Tigers have their first opportunity to claim victory number seven when Trine comes to visit this Wednesday, April 15 at 7 p.m. from Edwards Maurer Field.
