Senior Day for DC would end in a painful 1-0 loss to Transylvania. The Yellow Jackets drop to 8-9 on the season, and 3-4 in HCAC play.
Sean Roberts (Canal Winchester, Ohio / Canal Winchester) and Luke Freels (Ludlow Falls, Ohio / Milton Union) were honored before the game by Head Coach Alex Van der Sluijs and the team.
Once play began, Transy got the scoring going very quickly with a goal just 90 seconds into the game. Kyle Smith put in a header on a ball that hung up in the wind for his HCAC leading 14th goal on the season.
Roberts continued to play well in goal. He had three saves and turned away numerous dangerous crosses.
Offense was hard to come by for DC. They only managed five shots and none found their way to be a threat.
"It has been great working with these two young men throughout their career here at Defiance College," Van der Sluijs said of his two seniors. "They have worked hard. It has been a fun year and it will be hard to see them go."
Defiance opens up the last week of the regular season with a game on Wednesday against Bluffton. Kickoff is set for 4 p.m.
