Bulldogs Sweep Again at Home

The Ferris hockey team is off to its best home start in school history with a perfect 6-0-0 record at Ewigleben Ice Arena this season.

The Bulldogs swept the Bowling Green State Falcons for their third consecutive home sweep to start the season. The Bulldogs dominated the first match as they skated to a 5-1 victory.

The Falcon’s struck first as they put the puck past sophomore goaltender Taylor Nelson, only 59 seconds into the second period. The deficit did not phase the Bulldogs as they went on to score five unanswered goals, four of which came on the power play.

Golf with a Disc

The Ferris club disc golf team defeated Western Michigan 70-49 at the Michigan Intercollegiate Disc Golf Challenge (MIDGC) third event on Sunday. The event was held at Northend Riverside Park and included four students from Ferris. Disc golf is played similarly to conventional golf in that there are 18 holes and your score is the number of strokes total. Typically, events are scored using stroke-play, which is simply based on the total number of shots a competitor takes and the lowest score wins.

This event, however, was match-play and each hole was awarded a number of points. Brad Way, a senior in the construction management program, said the winner of the hole received two points; each person was awarded one point if they tied and the loser did not receive any points. This event was unique in that players of all skill levels could play because players were handicapped to their individual average.
