Illinois Wesleyan jumped to 2-2 on the season with the victory, while MSOE dropped to 0-2.

The Titans saw 17 players record a point in the win, led by a career-high eight points from freshman Andrew Ortega (Austin, Texas-Westlake). Ortego went for four goals and four assists, both of which were team-highs. Freshman Luke Schlabowske (Grayslake, Ill.-Grayslake North) tied Ortega for the team-high with four goals, also a career-high. Senior Connor Kiichle (Vancouver, Wash.-Skyview) added three goals and three assists as he tallied six points on the night.

The Raiders had no answers for the Titans on the faceoff, as the Green and White finished the night 27-of-36 at the X. The dominant effort saw sophomore Nick Schroeder (Waunakee, Wis.-Waunakee) go 16-for-17 and scooped up a team-high 13 ground balls. Sophomore Zo Lombardo (Elgin, Ill.-St. Viator) added eight ground balls and went 11-for-19 at the X, while both Lombardo and Schroeder tallied goals.

Illinois Wesleyan used a platoon of goalies in the win. Sophomore Colin Tervo (West Linn, Ore.-West Linn) tallied five saves without allowing a goal. Sophomore Segen Chambers (Chico, Calif.-Jesuit) and freshman Sam Scott (Worthington, Ohio-Thomas Worthington) made two stops apiece.

The Green and White wasted little time taking control, scoring four times in less than two minutes. Connor Kiichle found senior Carson Kiichle (Vancouver, Wash.-Skyview) for the game’s first goal at the 14:10 mark. Connor Kiichle went on to assist on junior Trystan Seeley’s (Castle Rock, Colo.-Castle View) goal at the 13:42 mark and then on another from Carson Kiichle. A win on the ensuing faceoff resulted in a goal from junior Gage Black (Peoria, Ill.-Dunlap), upping IWU’s lead to 4-0 with just over 13 minutes left in the first quarter.

It was all Titans from there, as IWU held a 12-0 lead after the opening period and never looked back.

Illinois Wesleyan remains at home Saturday, March 4, for a non-conference bout with Whittier College inside Tucci Stadium. Game time is set for 12 p.m.
