Tracking the Boys across the Nation


Six Bucks Feature in 2-2 Draw at Wright State University

A half-dozen players from Flint City featured last Tuesday as Wright State (7-5-2) hosted No. 15 Marshall (10-2-3).

Milo Yosef (redshirt freshman, fwd.) helped Marshall to an early lead, assisting the opening goal. After that tally was erased, Pedro Dolabella (junior, mid.) rose for an 86th minute header to put the Herd back in front. Less than a minute later, Wright State’s Alec Philippe (senior, fwd.) scored his fourth goal of the season to send the game to overtime.

Jan-Erik Leinhos (sophomore, def.) also started for Marshall, while Brayden McNitt (junior, mid.) and Stefan Rokvic (senior, mid.) started for Wright State.

Later in the week, Rokvic scored his seventh goal of the season to help the Raiders to a 2-1 victory over Cleveland State.

Steinwaschers Combine in Comeback Win

The University of Indianapolis extended its winning streak to six Friday night with a 2-1 overtime victory over Missouri S&T.

After falling behind early, the Greyhounds pulled even as Javier Steinwascher (senior, fwd.) found brother Alejandro Steinwascher (sophomore, mid./fwd.) off a corner kick. Javier went on to score the winning penalty in the 95th minute.

Javier now has five goals and 11 assists. Alejandro also has five goals to go with three assists.

Indianapolis (10-4-1) fell 1-0 to No. 24 Maryville on Sunday.

Popovic Penalty Lifts Michigan

Nebojsa Popovic (redshirt senior, fwd.) converted an 89th minute penalty kick to give the Wolverines a 1-0 win last Tuesday at Notre Dame. Popovic leads the team with eight goals, including two game-winners.

The road victory over a top-30 opponent could prove important for Michigan’s tournament resume. The side drew 1-1 against Wisconsin on Friday night and sits at 7-4-4.

Marc Ybarra (junior, mid.) is tied for the team lead with 1,392 minutes played. He and Popovic are among five players who’ve started all 15 matches this season. Ybarra also leads Michigan with six assists.

Umar Farouk Osman (junior, fwd.) has a goal and two assists in 13 matches. Kevin Buca (sophomore, mid.) has made 14 appearances and has one assist.

Golden Goal Lifts Butler

The Bulldogs (9-5-1) used a 103rd minute corner kick to break a scoreless draw and bolster their postseason resume Sunday against Villanova. 

Earlier in the week, Jarred Timmer (redshirt senior, mid.) notched an assist in Butler’s 3-2 loss to Marquette. Timmer now has five consecutive starts after battling injury for much of the season. He has a goal and two assists in 429 minutes.

Fresh off his first college goal, Hemi Nasser (freshman, fwd.) made two more appearances off the bench. He has played in all 15 matches this year.

Griffin DeBolt (sophomore, def.) returned to the lineup Wednesday after missing two games due to injury. Rhys Myers (junior, def.) sat out with a knock Wednesday but returned Sunday. Both defenders have appeared in 14 matches.

Jackson Scores for Akron

Will Jackson (freshman, fwd.) scored his third goal of the season as Akron (8-4-2) earned a 3-0 victory Friday, snapping the seven-match unbeaten streak of SIU Edwardsville.

Jackson also two assists this year. Colin Biros (sophomore, mid./fwd.) also started two more games last week for the Zips. He has one assist.

Bentley Helps Oakland Top Spartans

The Oakland University (7-6-2) defense held firm for a 1-0 result last Tuesday — earning the program’s first win over Michigan State since 2014.

Elliot Bentley (senior, def.) assisted the match-winning goal, as both he and Spencer Nolff (senior, mid.) were honored for senior night.

Sent off in the previous game, Dylan Borczak (junior, mid.) was absent. He leads the team in assists with eight and is tied for second with four goals.

MSU Suffers Consecutive 1-0 Losses

Michael Wetungu (senior, def.) and Patrick Nielsen (redshirt junior, def.) started both games last week for the Spartans (3-9-3), who fell 1-0 to both Oakland University and Northwestern.

Tough Week for No. 2 Wake Forest

Andrew Pannenberg (redshirt sophomore, keep.) made five saves last Tuesday, but host Loyola Maryland scored with 12 seconds left to earn a 1-1 tie. Saturday night, the Demon Deacons (12-3-1) fell 1-0 to Notre Dame.

Starting all 16 matches this season, Pannenberg has recorded eight shutouts and 34 saves. Isaiah Parente (sophomore, mid.) has also started consistently, notching a goal and four assists. Parente registered a team-high four shots in Saturday’s loss.

Charlie Booth (redshirt senior, def.) at the University of Rhode Island: Booth put in two more 90-minute performances last week as the Rams (11-3-2) extended their winning streak to seven matches. Rhode Island has surrendered just one goal in the past five games.
