HOW IT HAPPENED
Adrian opened up the scoring in the 18th minute when freshman Grant Perrine found the back of the net for his first career goal. Sophomore Justin Tobin played a long ball up to senior Tad Davis, who headed the ball on to Perrine. Perrine beat the last defender and buried the ball in the back of the net for the lead.
The Bulldogs doubled their lead just before half, when senior Brandon Katona scored in his first game back from injury in the 41st minute. Sophomore Eric Wahoski took advantage of a Pioneers turnover in their defensive end and found Katona who beat his man on the outside and then the keeper.
Davis found the back of the net himself early in the second half, making the lead 3-0 in the 61st minute. Senior Dolan Bonkowski placed a throw-in right at Davis's feet and Davis did the rest for his first goal of the year.
The final goal of the contest came shortly after Davis's goal when sophomore Jordan Miller scored from the penalty spot for his first goal of the season as well.
• Perrine, Katona, Davis, and Jordan Miller all scored their first goals of the year.
• Davis, Tobin, Wahoski, and Bonkowski all added an assist.
• Junior goalkeeper Spencer Brown stopped all four shots that made it on net.
• Carter Johnson led Transylvania in shots, taking two.
• Goalkeeper Drew Grisham played 70 minutes and made two saves.
"I thought the entire team played their part today. Everyone did the work that was needed of them to get the job done and were rewarded with some great goals and a win against a tough team." – Head Coach Ryan McDonald
