  • Defense dominates as Wabash runs over Allegheny

    Wabash recorded six sacks and held Allegheny to 56 yards of total offense in a 54-0 road victory for the Little Giants Saturday. Wabash ran for seven touchdowns in the shutout.

    The ninth-ranked Little Giants ran for 290 yards and threw for 239 in the lopsided North Coast Athletic Conference opener.

    Connor Ludwig paced the Little Giants defense with two sacks and three tackles for loss as a part of his five tackle effort. AJ Clark led the team with eight stops, including two tackles for losses totaling four yards. Wabash held the Gators (0-3, 0-2 NCAC) to minus-36 yards rushing on 25 carries.

    Allegheny completed 12-of-26 pass attempts for the majority of their yards, but also tossed three interceptions. CJ McMann returned the last pick 56 yards to set up a one-yard Matt Gibson touchdown. Delon Pettiford stepped in front of a Logan Lee pass in the second quarter that Michael Putko converted into a score on a six-yard run. Eddie Cmehil hauled in a pass tipped by Austin Brown for the third pick

  • Coming off their first game and first win, Wabash begins the conference play this Saturday. The Little Giants head to Meadville, Pennsylvania to play Allegheny College (0-2, 0-1 NCAC). Kickoff is set for 1 p.m.

    Wabash is 11-4 overall versus the Gators. The Little Giants have won the last two meetings versus Allegheny after losing 20-17 in overtime at home in 2012.

    Wabash remains ninth in the latest national rankings, receiving a total of 404 points. The Little Giants opened the season as the 10th-ranked team in the weekly poll before moving to ninth after their 35-3 win at Hampden-Sydney.

  • Freshman Nikola Kajmakoski tallied a pair of goals Friday night to give Wabash soccer a 2-0 victory at Hanover College.

    The Little Giants improve to 7-0 with the victory. Last season Wabash played 12 consecutive games without suffering a loss, but opened the season with five consecutive victories before notching a pair of ties. This year's Wabash team set a new school record with its seventh straight win to open the season and are two victories shy of tying the 1986 team's record of nine consecutive victories in a season.

    Kajmakoski scored his second goal of the season in the 13th minute. Mike Gore slipped a pass to the rookie, who beat the Hanover (2-4) goalkeeper on a one-on-one attempt. A foul by the host Panthers in the 31st minute put Kajmakoski over the ball with a direct free kick, which he converted for the insurance goal.

  • Wabash placed five runners in the top-14 spots and six in the top-20 to capture the Indiana Little State men's cross country title for the third straight season.

    The Red Pack scored 44 points to edge sixth-ranked Division II's University of Southern Indiana by a single point. The Little Giants entered the meet ranked 12th nationally and number one in the Great Lakes Region in the first official DIII US Track and Field and Cross Country Coaches Association poll.

    Southern Indiana captured first, third, and fifth places but could not place its fourth runner ahead of the pack of five Little Giants. Fabian House led the way for Wabash, crossing the line in fourth place with a time of 26:13.6. Adam Togami finished seventh with a time of 26:26.7 over the 8,000-meter loop at the LaVern Gibson Cross Country course in Terre Haute, Indiana. Mason McKinney finished eight seconds behind Togami in eighth place (26:34.5).
