Lobley's Last-Second Goal Lifts Oberlin over Drew

Madison, N.J. Oberlin scored four fourth-quarter goals including the game-winner with just 10 seconds left to defeat Drew 9-8 on Tuesday afternoon.

Sophomore Nick Lobley finished off an assist from fifth-year senior Connor Jackson to propel the Yeomen to their fifth win of the season. Lobley, a native of Port Washington, New York, also added the equalizer that made it 8-8 with 4:45 remaining in the game.

Sophomore Alex Wagman led the Yeomen scoring attack with three goals and an assist. Freshman Eric Hager matched Lobley with two scores, while Jackson finished with three helpers.

Junior Erickson Andrews was also strong in the cage as he made 14 saves in the game.

The Rangers took a 4-3 cushion into the locker room and would later lead 7-4 late in the third quarter, but Hager's first score of the night with 55 seconds left in the frame made it just a two-goal margin with 15 minutes left to play.

Wagman cashed in the first goal of the fourth quarter and Hager, with the help of Jackson, would even the match at 7-7 at the 11:09 mark. Aaron Davis' seventh goal of the season put the Rangers back on top with 6:08 to go, but Lobley would not let his Yeomen teammates go home without a victory.

The Yeomen were out-shot 46-38 and won just seven of the game's 21 face-offs. Oberlin also converted just two of its eight man-up opportunities, but despite all of that they still earned the victory.

Oberlin returns to conference play Saturday afternoon when it play host to Kenyon College at 3:00 p.m.
