Otterbein falls to a still very impressive 25-6 on the year and will now await word of a potential at-large bid. The NCAA Selection Show is scheduled for Monday at 12:30 p.m.

“I have been here in the conference for 29 years,” began OAC Commissioner Tim Gleason during the post-match ceremony. “That was the most impressive and high quality volleyball championship match I have ever seen. Both teams should be so proud.”

Otterbein opened strong in front of an energetic crowd on both sides, flying to a 14-8 lead and never trailing in the first set. ONU scored four straight after that and also trailed just 16-14, but the Cards kicked into gear heading forward behind six kills from Dasha Bruyako in the frame.

Both sides traded points to begin the second set, with Otterbein leading 8-5 before five-straight points from the Polar Bears The frame would then see ties at 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 19, 20 and 23 before ONU captured two points in a row.

Ohio Northern, which had trailed 19-17 in the previous set, carried all of that momentum toward a lopsided 19-9 lead in the third. Otterbein regrouped from a timeout and delivered a wild comeback that begin with an 8-0 run to make the score 19-17.

The Cards later trailed 21-18 before fighting through adversity once more, closing the frame on a 7-2 run and somehow taking a 2-1 match lead. Tate Eppard ripped off a pair of kills to finish after the set was deadlocked a 23-23.

Otterbein led 12-9 in the fourth before things became knotted up at 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 20 and 21 before Otterbein had three set points, up 24-22, 24-23 and 25-24. The Polar Bears displayed some perseverance to win four-straight points and emerge 27-25.

More deadlocks ensued at 8, 9, 10, 11, 12 and 13 before the Cards had another match point at 14-13. The Polar Bears tied quickly everything up again at 14 and ultimately finish the day on a 4-0 spurt.

“It was a tough outcome to swallow at the end, but we are playing very good volleyball and now just hoping for another chance,” head coach Monica Wright said. “I think our team can deliver a great showing in the NCAA Tournament and make a run on the national stage.”

Freshman Anna Donner had a match and career-high 23 kills while hitting .357 on the afternoon. Eppard added 19, Bruyako had 17 and Shuk tallied 14.

All of that was centered around the eye-popping 73 assists from freshman setter Carlie Craycraft, the third-most ever in a match for Otterbein and the most since the number of points needed to win a set was lowered from 30 to 25 back in 2008.

Otterbein Women’s Soccer falls in Double Overtime to Ohio Northern in OAC title game

ADA, Ohio- Another hard-fought showdown between Otterbein and No. 17 Ohio Northern in women’s soccer came right down to the very end, as top-seed and regular-season champion ONU ultimately netted a double-overtime goal to escape the Cardinals, 2-1, in Saturday night’s OAC Tournament title contest.

The host Polar Bears emerged behind a goal from leading scorer Jenna Fuller in the 102nd minute at a rowdy Kerscher Stadium, earning the league’s automatic bid the upcoming NCAA Tournament. Ohio Northern also survived the Cardinals by the same 2-1 result two weeks ago in Westerville.

Delaney Earl scored the lone Cardinals goal

Otterbein, sitting with a 16-4-1 overall record, will now be forced to wait until Monday’s NCAA Selection Show to see if it earns an at-large bid.

The two sides played to a draw at halftime with no one breaking through on the scoreboard. Otterbein saw chances when Bella Shivley hit the cross bar, and a near shot by Emily Ganz was saved by a diving Meagan Grierson. The Polar Bears then nearly scored a header that ricocheted off the crossbar before Erin Gordon was able to dive on the bouncing ball inches from crossing the goal line.

The Polar Bears took the lead in the 75th minute when Megan Brierer sent a high arching cross into the box off a corner kick, Sydney Leshnak was able to get a head on the ball and it send it far post to beat Gordon for the games first score.

Exactly two minutes later Delaney Earl shook her defender and hit a line drive shot over the defense and past Grierson with her left foot from 25-yards out, tying the game at 1-1 with under 14 minutes left.

Otterbein entered overtime with the Polar Bears trailing in shots 17-11. The first OT saw each side take three shots, but none could best the opposing keeper as another OT was needed to decide the winner.

Fuller ended the night roughly 90 seconds into the second overtime when a ball skidded through the box and nearly trickled out of bounds. Rose Nienaber kept it alive, feeding a pass back into Fuller who finished strong.

Gordon, Ganz and fellow junior classmate Sydney Young represented Otterbein on the 2019 All-Tournament Team. Stay tuned to and our social media outlets for updates heading into next week.
