Fouchet's late tally claims Hawks first NACC win

Chicago, Ill. – A late goal and stingy defensive effort gave the Scarlet Hawks their first NACC win of the season. Illinois Tech (4-8-0, 1-4-0 NACC) edged Benedictine University (4-5-1, 4-1-0 NACC) in a tightly contested Wednesday night contest 

How it Happened

  • An early strike by Noah Kwortnik put the Scarlet Hawks on the board early as he headed home a long throw from Jonathan Clarke 18 minutes into the game.
  • After a long scoreless drought by both teams, Benedictine found the equalizer with 14 minutes remaining.
  • With just over 8 minutes remaining, Peter Fouchet was able to connect on a free kick from Zach Whritenour to give the Scarlet Hawks the lead.
  • A late flurry by the Eagles was held off by Evan De Broux and company to preserve the 2-1 victory

Scarlet Hawks Standouts

  • Kwortnick and Fouchet were the the beneficiaries of set plays as Whritenour and Clarke filled the role of facilitator
  • Evan De Broux stood tall in goal making 7 saves including 2 in the last 7 minutes of play.

Up Next

  • The Hawks continue their NACC slate on the road at Wisconsin Lutheran College Saturday with a 1:00pm start time.
