The hunt for a second consecutive Crossroads League Tournament championship continued for the second-seeded Huntington University men’s soccer team as it defeated visiting University of Saint Francis, 4-1, on Saturday afternoon, Nov. 4, at King Stadium.

Freshman Caleb Sexton struck for a goal and two assists to push the Foresters, 13-4-2 overall, into the CL semifinal next Saturday against third-seed Bethel, again at King Stadium.

Sexton, from Spring Arbor, got his score before the King Stadium crowd could get settled in, finding back netting at just 2:33. He then assisted on Ben Arnold’s goal at 33:12, and notched his second dime when Luke Unger scored at the 53:33 mark for a 3-0 HU lead.

Christian Kohen scored unassisted at 83:11 to give HU a 4-0 lead, but St. Francis ruined the shutout for HU goalkeeper Gabe Greenfield with a score at 88:14.
