Stawicki and Huelsman lead Polar Bears in OAC-MIAA Shootout

Stawicki heads the ball last Tuesday.

A pair of Wellington Dukes’ graduates, Greg Stawicki and Christian Huelsman, helped lead Ohio Northern's soccer team to a record-breaking weekend by defeating Trine (Ind.) 3-0 Saturday afternoon and Kalamazoo (Michigan) 7-0 on Friday, to win its fifth OAC-MIAA Shootout.

On Saturday, Huelsman sent one into the back of the net for his fifth goal of the season to give ONU a 1-0 lead at the 29:27 mark.

Shortly after that at the 35:50 mark, Stawicki beat the keeper one-on-one to score a goal and give the Polar Bears a 2-0 lead and then added an insurance goal when he beat the goalkeeper at the top of the box and tapped the ball into an empty goal for his fourth goal of the season.

On Friday night, Huelsman beat the goal keeper high for a goal at the 51:19 mark to push the Polar Bears to a 4-0 advantage.

Stawicki also added a goal at the 80:26 mark for his third goal in a three-game span.

Stawicki had scored Ohio Northern’s game-winning goal against Wittenberg, as the Polar Bears won it’s third-straight home-opener Tuesday afternoon 1-0 at the ONU Soccer Field.

The game was scoreless until the 39:29 mark of the first half when sophomore Abrim Mueller crossed the ball into Stawicki, who shot the ball and had it blocked. Stawicki then followed his own rebound and hit the ball to the upper half of the net for the goal.

Ohio Northern (5-3-1), who just had its three-game losing streak snapped to Ohio Wesleyan on Wednesday, will host Defiance this Tuesday.
