The Ohio State University men’s soccer team will play host to the minor-league Dayton Dutch Lions in the 10th annual Connor Senn Memorial match on May 3 in Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium.

The likeable and popular Senn was a walk-on defender for the Buckeyes who collapsed during a game in 2001 and later died from a congenital heart defect.

The MLS’ Columbus Crew had been playing the Buckeyes in the annual charity game but will not participate because of provisions in the most recent Major League Soccer collective bargaining agreement.

The Columbus Crew defeated the defending Big Ten champion Ohio State men’s soccer team, 4-0, Tuesday night in the ninth annual Connor Senn Memorial Game at the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium in Columbus before 1,507 fans.

With the money being raised from ticket sales and silent auction items, the Connor Senn Memorial Fund surpassed the $170,000 mark after nine years and is now a fully-endowed scholarship at the Ohio State University. Some of the big ticket items from the auction Tuesday were Ohio State football tickets, Evan Turner autographed photos and weekend stays at area hotels.

Jason Garey led the Crew scoring assault on the field. The Crew, who is undefeated in Major League Soccer play through four games, with four goals on the night. For the Buckeyes, Konrad Warzycha, the son of Crew head coach Robert Warzycha, registered three of the team’s five shots on the day, while goalkeepers Matt Lampson and Ryan Dalton combined for nine saves.

The game started off with what looked to be an even match with the teams swapping possession for much of the first 15 minutes. The Crew, however, were the first to score. Garey opened the scoring in the 16th minute off of a cross from forward Emilio Renteria, sending the ball into the lower right 90 off a diving shot along the left side of the goal box.

Garey, a Maryland alum, continued the scoring with the second goal for the Crew unassisted in the 30th minute. The Crew were too fast to pounce on the defensive brakedown by the Buckeyes and scored again quickly in the 31st minute. Forward Sergio Herrera connected on a pass from Renteria with his scored assist for the night.

The Crew upped their lead during the 73rd minute when Renteria, with his third assist, placed the ball at the feet of Garey, who shot the ball into the back left of the net for his third goal on the night.

Although the Crew won the game 4-0, both teams will say the score of the match does not matter. The true victory of the Connor Senn Memorial game is keeping alive the memory of the former Buckeye who passed away playing the game he loved, soccer!

compiled from staff and Ohio State info

Tickets are available for the ninth annual Connor Senn Memorial Game between the Big Ten Champion Ohio State men’s soccer team and the Columbus Crew scheduled for 7 p.m. May 4 at the Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. Gates open at 5:30 p.m. and an auction begins at  6 p.m.

In addition to the exhibition match, the event features a silent auction that consists of a wide variety of Ohio State, Columbus Crew and Major League Soccer memorabilia, including  many autographed items, as well as donations from several Columbus businesses and organizations.

Following the game, there will be an autograph session with both Buckeye and Crew players and fans.

The Connor Senn Memorial Fund was established by Dr. Lance Senn, Connor’s father and a former member of the Ohio State tennis team. Connor collapsed during Ohio State’s match at Akron September 26, 2001, and died that night from a congenital heart defect. A native of Granville, Ohio, Connor was a freshman walk-on defender who had earned a starting position for the 2001 season. The Buckeyes went on to be selected for the NCAA Tournament that year for the second time in program history.

The legacy of Connor Senn will never be forgotten at Ohio State.

A plaque honoring Connor hangs outside the Buckeyes locker room door and Connor’s chair hangs in the locker room, which all players on the 2001 team signed with personal messages to Connor, who was known for his tremendous work ethic, positive attitude and selfless play.

“Play Like Connor Today” is the slogan of the Ohio State men’s soccer program and it has carried them to seven trips to the NCAA tournament this decade and to the 2007 national championship game.
