Bulldog’s soccer suffers setback against Lakers


Ferris State women’s soccer battled longtime foe in defending national champion, Grand Valley State, but came up short in 3-2 loss on Saturday night.

The Bulldogs (1-3-1) battled hard in the Saturday contest, keeping the game in front of them and not falling behind early on like many of the Lakers’ (4-1) contestants. Ferris matched wits with Grand Valley, keeping the game tied at 1-1 heading into the second half. The point scored was on the goal by junior forward, Nichole Boehnke.

Back-to-back goals by the Lakers Marti Corby late in the first half and early in the second put Grand Valley up 2-1. Ferris would answer back immediately, with junior forward Casey Shauman putting one in the net only one minute later to tie the contest back up.

The Lakers pulled ahead late in the second half, though; as Colby starred in this showing with her third goal on the night to end the Dawgs fight.

Ferris next travels to Walsh University on Sept. 26 with the match-up slated to start at 7 p.m.


Volleyball stays undefeated in GLIAC


Ferris State extended their conference run to 4-0, 6-2 overall, after a 3-0 rout of Malone University.

The Bulldogs downed Malone in great fashion on Saturday to keep their overall record in great fashion, also keeping their early strangle-hold on their conference in check.

The Dawgs saw great showings by Courtney Rehm, who registered nine kills, and Danielle Dowd, who racked up nine D’s. The showing against Malone has been the usual for Ferris, who has remained dominant against North Division opponents.

Ferris State will look to continue their reign of dominance against Grand Valley on Tuesday. Due to publication time, the Ferris State Torch was not able to record the outcome of the Grand Valley matches.
