Pioneers thump Anderson to gain NCAA bid

More news about: Transylvania

LEXINGTON, Ky. - Transylvania exploded for three second-half goals Saturday and ripped Anderson 4-1 in the finals of the Heartland Conference Men's Soccer tournament, earning a spot in next weekend's NCAA Division III Championships.

The Pioneers advance to post-season play with a16-1-2 record while the Ravens wrap up their campaign with a 10-11-1 mark. Transy will be making its seventh NCAA appearance under head coach Brandon Bowman and its first since 2010. The Pioneers have won six matches in a row and are unbeaten in their last 13 appearances.

Anderson scored first in a match played at Henry Clay High School, but the next four goals would belong to the Pioneers.

HCAC Tournament MVP Eric Froschauer tied the contest when he headed in a free kick off the foot of Evan Sizemore at 37:54. The match was tied 1-1 at halftime.

Froschauer's second goal of the game and seventh of the year came in the 55th minute when he faked past a pair of defenders and finished near post.

HCAC scoring leader Kyle Smith iced the contest for the Pioneers with two second-half goals. His 17th goal of the season came off a Froschauer assist and made it 3-1 at the 77:39 mark He completed the scoring with his 18th goal with under three minutes to play, converting a pass from Christian King.

"I'm very proud of our team," said Bowman, who has 156-32-26 record in 11 seasons as Transy's head coach, including a 71-5-9 mark in HCAC play. "We played very well in this tournament and really executed on offense. Our defensive play was also solid. I think we've been consistent throughout the season and we will be entering the NCAA tournament playing at a high level. Hopefully, that will continue."

Transy dominated in terms of shots, taking 23 overall and 13 on goal compared to five and three for the visitors. Each team took four corners.

Smith led Transy in shots with eight while Froschauer added six. Keeper Taylor Nossokoff had two saves for the Pioneers.

NCAA bids and pairings will be announced Monday on the NCAA website, ncaa.com.
