Kent def OSU 2-1

KENT-Rec: Kent def OSU 2-1 in the Multi-purpose Room at the Rec Center

Kent State University and The Ohio State University met for their respective opening matches on Saturday September 15th at Kent State’s recreation center. Both teams were able to field a majority of veterans with Kent bringing two new players and Ohio State five. Ohio State got a quick win in the first match followed by back to back wins by Kent State. The last game came down to the wire, as Ohio State attempted to eliminate the few remaining Kent players left in play in order to gain a tie. The match ended with Kent State winning 2-1. There were approximately fifty fans in attendance.

UK defeats WKU 4-0

LEXINGTON-Alumni: UK def WKU 4-0 in the Alumni Gym

The University of Kentucky and Western Kentucky University squared off on their opening matches on Saturday September 15th. Between UK and WKU both teams fielded a combined 30 veterans to start the opening match. Both team started to shake of the rust from the summer and began a slow paced first half. UK led going into the break 1-0 lead. Both teams came out in the second half with something to prove and exhibited a much faster pace and ended the match with UK winning 4-0. On two separate points WKU forced UK down to a 10 second shot-clock only to be denied the point.

The several hundred people in attendance were given a scare just minutes into the game as UK’s Jeffery DeWitt (#22) suffered a severe concussion while failing to properly land from a dodge in midair. The injury required multiple stitches and an overnight stay at the hospital. We are glad to report that Jeffrey DeWitt is looking to make a good recovery in the upcoming months.
