ANDERSON, Ind. – Defiance College placed four players in double figures but was no match for the interior strength of Anderson College on Wednesday evening, falling by an 82-72 margin to the Ravens.

The host Anderson squad took the lead for good at 6-5 and stayed in front over the final 37:22 of action, leading by as many as 21 points in the second half. Defiance closed the game on a 17-6 spurt over the final 6:14 of action but fell short in its comeback bid.

Anderson (9-9, 5-6 HCAC) had its way in the paint, pulling down 18 offensive rebounds en route to a 31-13 gap in second-chance points in the contest. For the game, DC was beaten on the boards by a 45-26 mark.

Another key disparity came at the free throw line, where Defiance did not attempt a free throw until the 7:08 mark of the final period and ended the game with only two makes from the charity stripe. The host squad countered by getting to the line 20 times in the game and connecting on 18 of those tries for a 16-point spread.

Ryan Hicks turned in one of his finest performances of the year in the losing effort, ending with 12 points, nine rebounds, three blocks, a pair of steals and one assist in 29 minutes of work. Other contributors included Logan Wolfrum’s 15 points, five assists, two blocks and two steals and Anthony Brown, who chipped in 14 points and four boards.

Defiance (7-11, 3-8 HCAC) will head to Lexington, Ky., on Saturday to tangle with the league-leading Transylvania Pioneers (16-2, 10-1 HCAC) in a 3:00 pm.

Defiance College star defensive back Kyle Longsdorf capped the 2011 Ohio Army National Guard Senior Bowl II win for his North Team by interecepting a pass in the end zone with 26 seconds left in the game to preserve a 19-16 win last Saturday at Crew Stadium in Columbus, Ohio.

The game-saving play, seen by Defiance College fans the past four seasons, capped an impressive showing for the free safety. The Third-Team All-American racked up a trio of solo tackles and assisted on three other stops, while also blocking a kick.

Longsdorf was not the only former DC football star to shine in the lights at Crew Stadium in the Senior Bowl, as Tom Foos handled the punting duties for the South Team. The Second-Team All-North Region performer had two of his three attempts land inside the 20-yard line and added a 40-yard kick.

Longsdorf is 6’1, 190 from London, Ohio and a graduate of London High School in Madison County.

The Senior Bowl II All-Star Game capped the sensational college careers of Longsdorf and Foos, who led Defiance to a second-place finish in the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference in 2010. Longsdorf took home HCAC Defensive Player-of-the-Year honors, while Foos was named the HCAC Special Teams Player of the Year.

Kirk Jesse (DC)

Defiance College closed its 2010 campaign with a pair of Senior Day wins this past Saturday at Rutter Field against Rose-Hulman.  The series win by the Jackets ended the HCAC Championship hopes of the Engineers, while capping Defiance College’s winningest season since winning 19 games in 1999. They honored 6 seniors who will be leaving the program due to graduation.

The day started with the completion of Friday’s suspended game, which had Rose-Hulman holding an 8- 6 lead over Defiance entering the bottom of the eighth inning. DC came back to score 5 runs in the bottom of the inning to take control of the game at 11-8.

The three-run cushion would hold, as Tyler Gallant worked a perfect ninth inning to preserve the come from behind win for the Yellow Jackets. Gallant (3-3) was credited with the victory, after yielding one hit and one earned run in two innings, following a clutch six-inning relief pitching performance from Aaron Patterson in which he struck out six Rose-Hulman batters.

The Jacket offense erupted for 11 runs on 13 hits behind multi-hit games from six of the top seven hitters in the lineup. Kirk Jesse swiped three bases to tie the Defiance College single-season record of 27.

The offense stayed hot in the second game, using a six-run second inning to take control. The result was an 11-7 DC victory that saw the Purple and Gold pile up 14 more hits.

Tim Pitro Defiance (DC)

Defiance completed its assault on the record books on Saturday and saw four more records fall as Kirk Jesse set single-season marks with 171 at bats and 30 steals, while Tim Pitro tied the single season record with 14 doubles and set a new all-time runs scored record with 110.

Falling records were the theme for the Yellow Jackets in 2010, as the team set all-time records with 1,357 at bats, 400 hits, 76 doubles, 321 innings pitched, 963 putouts, 420 assists and a .958 fielding percentage.

Multiple individual single-season standards were also set, with Kirk Jesse’s at bats and steals marks joining Tim Pitro’s doubles record and Bryn Lehman’s assist total of 119.

Jesse and Pitro carried the act over into the all-time rankings as well, with Jesse leaving as the program’s all-time leader with 555 at bats and Pitro rounding out his record-breaking career as Defiance College’s all-time leader with 174 hits, 110 runs scored, 102 runs batted in, 34 doubles and 346 assists.
