The Mount jumped out to a 2-0 lead at the half, and withstood a valiant second half comeback attempt by Earlham College, as they defeated the Quakers on the road, 2-1. The Lions, 4-12-1 overall, 2-6 in the HCAC, were awaiting word whether they were going to make up their Oct. 2 postponed game versus Bluffton University.
Nicholas Siko (Avon, OH/Avon Lake) got the scoring started for the Lions at the 21:48 mark of the first half when he scored off a pass from Nick Groman (New Richmond, OH/New Richmond). The Mount jumped out to a 2-0 lead at 36:00 when Gabe Abraham (Cincinnati, OH/Northwestern) scored off a pass from James Grzebyk (Cincinnati, OH/Elder). Tyler Kenyon (Cincinnati, OH/Mariemont) would claim the win in goal for the Lions, allowing only a lone goal to the Quakers in the 78th minute of action, and recording four saves.
Earlham had a 12-11 edge in shots, including 6-2 in the second half. The Lions, however, had seven shots on goal to their opponents' five shots on goal. Each team had four corner kicks.
