CHICKASHA – The Drover men were well on their way to a victory when excessive lightning ended Tuesday’s game early.

The team was averaging a goal every five minutes against Hillsdale Free Will Baptist College on Tuesday afternoon, but lightning delayed the game after the first 25 minutes. About an hour later, the teams took the field to warm up to finish the game, but more lightning called the game before play could resume.

Coach Jimmy Hampton said they may try to reschedule the match, but no dates have been set.

Senior Dusan Rasovic shined during the game, scoring two goals and helping out with an assist. Sophomore Niall Crick netted a goal and had two assists.

Jeremy Kari Kari and David Otieno also scored goals for the Drovers, who were up 5-0 when the game was called. Hillsdale had no shots.

The both Drovers’ men’s and women’s teams head to Union, Tenn., to play Delta State and Emmanuel College this weekend. The men return home at 3 p.m. Sept. 10 to take on Brescia University.
