GU gives it’s all in NEAC crossover on Senior Day/Homecoming weekend

The Gallaudet University women’s volleyball team played inspired here
Friday afternoon in the Field House as the Bison hosted a North Eastern
Athletic Conference (NEAC) crossover day with three other conference foes
on homecoming weekend.

Gallaudet (11-21, 7-3 NEAC) was able to split its two matches between
Cazenovia College and first-place Morrisville State College.

The Bison swept the Wildcats from Cazenovia; 25-14, 25-8, 25-15.

GU turned around to face Morrisville St. (18-6, 10-0 NEAC), who entered
the match sitting on top of the NEAC standings and needed one more win to
clinch the regular-season title. The Bison tried to spoil the Mustangs’
goal as the buff and blue took the first set, 25-16. Gallaudet was in
position to take a 2-0 lead as it led 22-20 before the Mustangs rallied to
score five of the next six points. The two teams played a close third set
as the lead exchanged hands multiple times. The Bison held a 14-13 lead
before the Mustangs took over down the stretch. GU kept the set within a
point, 19-18, before Morrisville St. closed things out with six
consecutive points. The fourth and final set was another close battle as
the lead remained within a point or two. GU tied the set several times,
the last one came at 17 all, but couldn’t regain control as the Mustangs
won, 25-21. Morrisville will be the top-seed in the upcoming NEAC
tournament.

Indiana football

part of newspaper story

Most, if not all, of the football players taking the field Friday night
weren’t born the last time Edinburgh and Indiana School for the Deaf met
in the postseason.

Unlike that first go-round, it was the Orioles coming out on top.

Led by the running of hard-charging junior Maurice Mitchell, Indiana Deaf
downed the Lancers, 42-28, in the opening round of their Class A
sectional. Edinburgh finishes with a 1-9 record.

St Mary’s soccer

The Bison’s rounded out their regular season campaign with a convincing
4-1 win against the Stanley G. Falk School. Our team played with a
mission. Not only were we
trying to rebound from a tough loss earlier in the week, but with a
victory over the Falcons it would catapult the team into the NFCAA
playoffs. Despite the fact
that our opponent scored first, the Bison’s didn’t panic and continued to
control the tempo of the match. It wouldn’t be long before Mobin
Abdollahi. would blast a
few shots past Falk’s keeper to give us a 1 goal advantage heading into
halftime. The coaching staff reminded our squad to keep “the pedal to the
metal” by
pressuring the other teams defense and not just sitting back. Senior
captain, Nick Barrus, got the message loud and clear and collected 2 “blue
collar” goals and
tacked on to his team leading total. With a 3 goal differential, we were
able to substitute many of our players to give our starters a rest and our
deep bench more
experience heading into our playoff game next week Tuesday at home against
Central Baptist. Please wish the Bison’s congrats and good luck!

Overall Record: 7-5

NFCAA Record: 5-3

ESDAA Record: 2-2

Individual Stats:

Nick Barrus: 2 goals(13th & 14th of the season)

Mobin Abdollahi: 2 goals(3rd & 4th of the season)

in 1986 when I started covering deaf sports, the school
was still playing 6 on 6 against hearing but switched
to 5 on 5 vs deaf
