FUTURE UNCERTAIN — Built In 1954, the underutilized Holland Civic Center pictured above could soon have a date with the wrecking ball due to Its extensive flooding Issues. Alex Bellca Campus N ews Co-Edptor

All good things must come to an end. After being held in the Holland Civic Center for nearly 60 years, the 80th-annual Nykerk Cup Competition will be held Nov. 1 in the DeVos Fieldhouse. Maintenance and safety issues as well as questions about the future of the Civic Center have forced the Nykerk execu­ tive committee to reconsider the event’s venue. “The move was student ini­ tiated and based on a number of issues,” said Ellen Awad, the director of Student Life, who serves as Nykerk's faculty advi­ sor. In recent months concerns about basement flooding have called the future of the Civic Center into question. The build­ ing was built in 1954 on top of land that was at one time a ^narsh, and the site’s watery conditions have begun to take a toll on the building. Last August The Holland Sentinel reported that flooding issues had wors­ ened. Water is now leaking into the basement boiler room which provides heat to the facility. So far pumps have been used to protect the boilers, which were updated just a couple of years ago at costs upward of $150,000. fixing the flooding issues alone ^oiild cost between $300,000 apg| $400 ,000. More money would need to be spent to up­ date the interior. Although the city council has not reached a decision on the future of building, many of the council members seem resolved that it would make more finan­ cial sense to tear down the un­

W e ’re going to tear this thing down,” Councilman Jay Peters told The Sentinel. According to Awad, the de­ cision to change facilities was not an easy one and will force a number of permanent changes to the Nykerk Competition. “This is going to be a whole new Nykerk,” said Awad. Nykerk has been held in the Civic Center since 1956. For most of the event’s history it

has been tied to the same ven­ ue. Consequently, many of the traditions that make Nykerk so unique were developed around the building's physical layout. Christine Hunter (T5), the gen­ eral chair for this year's event, is mindful that changes may be necessary. “Our main goal as a com­ mittee has been to evaluate our traditions to see if they best fit within our new space but also to see ifthey fitwith our vision for the future of Nykerk,” she said. For instance, unlike the Civic see

N EW YEAR, N E W WINNER— Even year w a s victorious last

O u r main goal as a committee has been to evaluate our traditions to see if they best fit within our n e w space but also to see if they _ fit with our vision for the future of Nykerk. — Christine H unter Nykerk G eneral Chair

year, but with each n e w Pull season, there’s also a clean slate.

99 “You could imagine it as Convocation but even bigger. W e will have a setup that will work to accommodate the needs of the play and oration partici­ pants,” said Hunter. Another potential complicat­ ing factor is that participants will not have as many oppor­ tunities to practice in the new venue, since DeVos must con­ tinue to host athletic events in the week leading up to Nykerk. This will mostly affect play par­ ticipants. “The new venue poses a few challenges to the play in particu­ lar. It is difficult to design a set without having the stage dimen­ sions, and it may be more chal­ lenging for us to practice scene changes, but I'm also excited about some of the opportunities it gives us," said Jacob Iceberg (’16), a '18 play morale coach. Not all the changes will be negative. Hunter declined to provide many details but hinted at some improvements in the experience for the audience. “I don't want to give away too much of the surprise. However I will say that the audience will have a much better view of the participants, and we are work­ ing to make the participants the main focus of the event,” she said. The move to DeVos will also allow organizers to sell more tickets as DeVos has a higher capacity to hold around 1,000 more people. After overcrowd­ ing issues in the past years, Awad cited the increased space as one of the main benefits of the move. Itwill also be possible for organizers to sell reserved seating in the future so nobody will have to wait in line ahead of the event to get the perfect seat. Despite the uncertainty, one thing is for sure: the new venue promises to make this year's Nykerk one of the most sur­ prising ever. With the greater number of tickets and closer lo­ cation, there is now even more reason to attend the event.

Aleksandrs Molenaar Co-Campus Editor

It’s hard to believe that there are only three buildings on Hope College’s campus that are older than The Pull. Van Vleck Hall, Graves Hall and the president’s home are alljustbarelyolder than the tradition itself. The Pull is coming back for its 1.17th war between Even Year (2018) and Odd Year (2017). The Pull began in 1898, with 18 pull­ ers and 18 moralers on each team. Since then it has received recog­ nition from various web sites and news providers such as mlive, TotalFratMove.com, and Foxl7 for being one ofthe oldest and crazi­ estcollege traditions to ever exist. From the weeks of practice leading up to the eve of Pull Day banquet, there isa lot of prepara­ tion to be done. For such a con­ test which focuses on physical

and mental strength, there are things you cannot teach, such as the willto keep pulling even when exhaustion sets in. The Hope Alumni office inter­ viewed pullers and moralers for the 100th year anniversary of The Pull. Ted J. Grund (’86) said that the mental and physical prepara­ tion was one ofthe hardest things he’d ever done. "It was a fantastic experience, but one that required the most combined mental and physical dedication of any athletic experi­ ence I had ever been a part of in my life. It is an experience that I am proud to say Iwas part of!” Even Year pullers look to even the score of the past three years as the class of 2015 took two straight wins in 2011 and 2012. The Even Year reclaimed the title lastyear but will meet a challeng­ ing Odd Year team if they want to even the score to 2-2 over the

last four years. Be on the look­ out for Pull alumni with their sweatshirts printed with things like "Pull Coach ‘64” or "Pull 75" and ask what itwas like for them to go through a tradition such as this. A week and a halffrom now the Pull teams T7 and 18 will be locked in a tradition almost as old as the college itself. As A1 Pachino’s speech from “Any Given Sun­ day” goes, “life is just a game of inches,” and for these pullers and moralers, it’s the inches of rope they'll be pulling on.

T H E P U L L FAST F A C T S - The longest pull (1977) was 3 hours, 51 minutes; the shortest (1956) was 2 minutes, forty seconds. - Since 1909, Even Year has held the crown with the most wins 55, com­ pared to the rising Odd Year’s 42 wins. - Only two classes have won allfour years (two as pullers and two as coaches), 1934 and 1936. - There have only been four draws in the Pull’s history (1916,1926,1952, 1977).

In recent weeks, ISIS has re­ leased videos of its members beheading American journalists James Foley and Steven Sotloff, all the while, claiming to have more prisoners to execute unless the United States forces cease their airstrikes and immediately withdrawal allpresence from the region. With a continuing series of crises, President Obama has finally unveiled a plan in his ad­ dress to the nation. During the televised talk, he declared that anyone who threatened America would “find no safe haven.” The president called for 475 US military personnel to be sent to Iraq in strictly non-combative roles. A systematic campaign of air strikes against ISIS targets into regions of Syria will also be on the table. President Obama called for assistance to be given to ground forces that are fight­ ing against the terror group with restrictions against rebels who are deemed a threat to US. na­ tional interests. The president also highlight­ ed the development of counter­ terrorism methods as well as continuing humanitarian assis­ tance to the millions of civilians who have been displaced in the fighting.

Can Scotland afford to depart from the U K? Andrew Gomez-Seoane W orld Co-Editor

In less than a few days, Scot­ tish citizens will be asked to make the one ofthe most impor­ tant decisions in their lifetimes. Should Scotland be an indepen­ dent country? The fallout from a yes-or-no decision has the pos­ sibilityto ring beyond the shores of the United Kingdom. More than a dozen states and provinces across the European continent will be holding their collective breath to see if Scot­ land does indeed become its own nation after more than 300 years of unity under British rule. Taking such a step may well trig­ ger similar movements in areas such as Catalonia where ethnic pride takes precedent over na­ tionalistic loyalties. In the world of hypotheticals itdoes beg the question of what would happen to an independent Scottish people. Would they flourish on their own as many in the pro secessionist movement claim or would the country face an inevitable decline without the queen’s watchful eye? Many on both sides of the de­ bate have made claims as to the possibilities that lie ahead for Scotland in the upcoming days before the vote.

The other important issue at stake is the need to establish a permanent currency if inde­ pendence comes to fruition. The proposal by the leaders in the independence movement to peg Scotland to the British pound is unlikely to come about with rising tensions from party lead­ ers in London.

The Jack Ridl Visiting Writers Series (VWS) continues at Hope College this week with readings from Katherine Bode-Lang ('02) and Laura Donnelly ('01) this Thursday at 7 p.m. in Graves Hall. It is the 9th-Annual Tom Andrews Memorial Reading— in honor of the esteemed poet and graduate of Hope. There will be a question-and-answer session with both poets at 3 p.m. in the Fried-Hemenway Auditorium in the Martha Miller Center. Bode-Lang, after graduating from Hope, went on to pursue a masters degree in poetry at Pennsylvania State University. Her most recent book, “The Ref­ ormation,” won the 2014 Ameri­ can Poetry Review Honickman First Book Prize. Donnelly lives on the shores of Lake Ontario and currently teaches at the State University of New York Oswego. Her first book of poetry, “Watershed," won the 2013 Cider Press Re­ view Editors Prize. Both writers will take turns reading from selections of their poetry. The question-and-an­ swer session will give students

and the public a chance to ask questions they may have for Donnelly and Bode-Lang about their poetry or the process of creative writing. The reading on Thursday will be the first event of the 2014-2015 academic year for the VWS, which brings a di­ verse group of talented writers to Hope's campus each year. The mission of the V W S is to “pro­ vide the community with diverse and rich literary experiences.” In the past, the V W S has featured such names as poet Ed Hirsch and novelist and short-fiction writer A m y Bloom. The V W S is currently direct­ ed by Professor Pablo Peschiera of the English department and relies on the help of student volunteers to make events run smoothly. Students pick up writers from their hotels, lead question-and-answer sessions, introduce writers before their readings, and even share a meal with the writers. The V W S always welcomes new student volunteers. Meet­ ings are held throughout the year to assign jobs for new events. Volunteer responsibilities range from greeting attendees at the door to writing introductions

for the speakers, which requires reading several of the writer's works. The V W S is open to vol­ unteers from alldepartments. The V W S was established in 1982 by Jack and Julie Ridl. Ridl began the series by inviting “writers he knew and admired,” according to the V W S website. Ridl's program has grown since itsinception into a program that includes a huge variety of writ­ ers, from poets to comic book authors. Since its founding, the V W S has hosted writers who have “gone on to win Pulitzer Prizes, National Book Awards, and other honors,” according to the V W S website. A few writers who have spoken at the V W S have even gone on the become United States' Poet Laureates. The Jack Ridl Visiting Writers Series provides Hope students and the Holland community with direct access to award­ winning authors and writers like Bode-Lang and Donnelly. The V W S takes place mul­ tiple times throughout the year with a variety of writers. A full calendar of events, as well as a complete history of the V W S and author biographies, is avail­ able on the V W S website at www.jrvws.org.

College through bright eyes Homesickness

Madison Brady Columnist “College is going to be the best time of your life,” people told me. “You will make new friends to last a life time; you will play hard and work even harder. Everything will fall into place soon.” I didn’t believe them. Beginning college is one of the scariest moments of any adolescent’s life. W e have just barely become legal adults. W e are recent graduates of primary school, having been spoon-fed by our parents and teachers

practically our whole lives,with no experience outside our own homes. Yet here we are, thrown out into the world on our own to survive the bustling chaos of college. It’s wonderful to finally have the freedom many of us desired throughout the grueling years of high school. No more being told by our parents when we should go to bed; no more being harassed by our siblings every opportunity they get and no more chores to grumble about every night after school. These new-found freedoms are awesome. But after living with our families for 18 years or so, some of these routines have become ritualistic, and now our lives feel incomplete without them. The first few days after my parents left were easy. Wake Up early, go to class, do some homework, go to another class, more homework and then

I only know that we had a student section at the game because for most of the game I was standing right in front of them, cheering, trying to get people hyped up about the fact that we were winning the game. I’m a cheerleader and trying to get people to be excited about the game is literally built into my title. Nobody seemed to know what was going on though. It was like watching a bunch of British people who have never seen an American football game before sit and watch the game politely with clapping occasionally when something happens. Where isthe passion? Where is the pride in Y O U R team,

little siblings. And I wanted to go back, to get away from this crazy new place. But after a couple of teary eyed phone calls to my mom, dad and my best friend I came to realize something. This isn’t goodbye. It'sjust goodbye for now. None of them are leaving for good, and neither am I. And the people at Hope aren’tso bad either. Itjust takes time. As of now, three weeks in, I have pretty good friends in all my classes, and my dorm mates are some of the most amazing girls I’ve ever met. With nine months left to go of this school year, Iknow we will become great friends. N o w I know this year is going to be okay. I’m going to be okay. And (cliche aside) I can already tell that these next four years are going to be some of the best years of my life. Any comments on Madisons opinions? Piease email us at anchorsubmissions@hope.edu

Can w e act like fans? wearing Y O U R colors, playing at Y O U R home stadium? People talk about home-field advantage, but if the only advantage we get is not forcing the team to ride a cramped bus for a couple hours, then what’s the point? I’m not asking you to do anything you haven’t done before. Back in high school we went to the games and cheered on our teams with our friends. W e dressed up for neon-days and black-outs and camo-days and we made an event out of it. Can we go back to being like that? God knows that Hope College is closer to a highschool than a state university. For our next home game against Rockford have some fun with it. Dress up in funky clothes. Come cheer atthegame and actually stand up and cheer when we score a touchdown, or get an interception, or during a critical third down. I’llbe there, and I won't be there because I have to. I could have quit cheering a long time ago, and I haven’t. I’ll be there because I love football and because I love my school. You only need to love one of those things to have a good time come next game. John has plans to continue writingfor Voices each week. Any comments on his opinions?

I sat at the desk assigned to me in my cramped dorm room, listening to the silence around me and wondering why it had to be like this. W h y wasn't anybody hanging out anymore, talking and laughing? When orientation was over, everybody went back to their little groups of pre-made friends, and I was alone. Yes, everybody at Hope is great, but being a shy person I am, I just couldn’t muster up the courage to go talk to someone new. Iremembered all of my friends from high school and missed them more with each passing class period and wondered why I couldn’t have them here with me. I wanted to believe those cliche quotes everybody had been telling me for the past three months, but sitting there, behind m y desk late at night, I wasn’t so sure they were true. I missed everyone from home, even m y tormenting

passing out at my desk from exhaustion from the already apparent overload ofhomework. That, plus the never ending relay of school sanctioned events to get the freshmen integrated into the school, left no time to sit around and think about how different things were. But by week two, after becoming more accustomed to the new schedule, I began the attempt to return to my old habits. Coming home from a class and talking to my littlebrother about how difficult itwas and how he was lucky not to be in it, or fighting with my sister over borrowing her shirt, or just sitting at the table in the living room doing homework with my kitten snoozing on my lap, sniffing the delicious air as my m o m prepared a late night dinner for the family. None of these things were going to happen ever again. I had moved on to the next chapter in my life that didn’t really include them.

Bits and pieces

People Matter

A place where all belong

Anonymous Columnist As you adjust to college life, you are probably stilltrying to figure out the system of being on your own. For some of us that consists of learning how to make coffee without a cof­ fee maker, or learning how to make scrambled eggs in a cup. But for others adjusting means finding somewhere they fitin. When I first got to Hope, m y main concern was that I would not fitin. What ifIdon’t belong and what if no one likes me? I was so scared for my parents to leave me with people I barely knew. I got over this feeling very quickly. I met the most fantastic group of people ever. They included me in everything, they were genuinely interested in what I had to say, and they made me laugh. After the first week, I started referring to my hall as “home.” Ifeltlike Iwas adjust­ ing too fast. W h y wasn't Ifeel­ ing sad about leaving home? The answer just came to me a few days ago when Iwas sitting at the dinner table in Phelps. I was barely able to breathe because Iwas choking on my laughter, and my water.

I realized that I mattered to these people. For the first time in my life Ifeltcompletely included. As I started to bring my dishes up to the station, I saw a girl sitting by herself. She never looked up, she just sat and ate her food. Ihad a strong desire to sit with her. She looked alone and scared. I remem­ bered seeing her at orienta­ tion, but itwas so busy that I never introduced myself. So I took the initiative and I went to ask ifshe would like me to sitwith her. M y point is that while you may have adjusted to college, others are still struggling. People want to fit in and they want to matter. They want to feel like they are a part of something bigger than them­ selves. People want to laugh and they want to have a home. So I challenge you this, students of Hope: reach out, learn names, and include peo­ ple. While you may have your friend group, someone else may not! People matter. As it says in Matthew i:12, "Dp unto others as you would have them do unto you.” You never know, you might just make a new friend.

: Kassandra Gancedo Columnist Since my firstyear at Hope, the name Benjamin’s Hope has come to my attention many times. For one reason or another Ihave never been able to visit and know little about what it really was. At the first Council for Exceptional Children meeting of the year, we discussed community resources and possible events coming up. One of those was a heads up we had received about an event at Benjamin’s Hope. r couldn’t resist, I had to experience this place that had for so long interested me. I had to see this place that is safe for people with Autism and Developmental differences, where they can live in and thrive in safety and acceptance. I was able to contact the events coordinator and learned that they needed

help with the hayrides and to Google Benjamin’s Hope for more information. I found the home page of the website and smiled as I read ‘Benjamin’s Hope: A Place Where W e All Belong’ ,Iwas instantly sucked in more than I already was; I could not wait to see this place myself. M y best friend had raised money for the initial building in high school and was excited to see the location and the mission in action. Thursday came and we were off to the Firelight Festival, Benjamin's Hope’s annual fall celebration. W e got there a little early and were able to explore the barn and the garden. W e were greeted by warm, friendly, inviting people ' who had no questions to ask or judgments to make. W ^ were there and they were happy about it. This place blew my mind and filled my heart with incredible joy. Such an unlikely group had gathered, Hope students, Benjamin’s Hope residents and employees/volunteers, people from the M y Brothers and M y Sisters houses, community members, and families all joining together to celebrate Benjamin's Hope.

Children and adults were everywhere and there was no way to know who lived or worked at Benjamin's Hope versus community members, volunteers, and members of other residential facilities. That was a beautiful thing, no one was stigmatized as odd or out of place, everyone just knew, and everyone just was. There was no staring at an outburst and no dirty glances at something out of the ordinary. In fact, there was no out of the ordinary, there were just smiles, love, and acceptance. The hayrides were fun to monitor and we even got to meet a Hope professor and chat. I can really say that Benjamin’s Hope felt like a home, and also like all were welcome to join the family. As a future special educator, I couldn’t have been happier. This past week my curiosity about Benjamin’s Hope was extinguished and ignited even stronger. I finally saw Benjamin's Hope firsthand so I no longer had to wonder about it, but I fell in love so I can’t help but to want more. O h and there was a magician and goats too. H o w much cooler could itget?

#nofilter: thoughts on crowdfunding ier.Their original funding goal was $50,000, and I felt that it accurately portrayed the cost of everything they said they would use it for. They ended up receiving $277,399, and they adjusted their usage plans accordingly. The second crowdfunding Jimmy Champane campaign I backed popped up Co-Editor-in-Chief as I was writing this column, actually.

launched a Patreon campaign to go along with the redesigned channel. For those who don’t know; Patreon isa lot like Kickstarter in that the consumer pledges to pay a certain amount of money to help a product reach a certain monetary goal, but Patreon pledges recur monthly, while Kickstarter is a one-time deal. I backed their new channel because on the old one, they put out a podcast every week for $1 called the “GameOver­ Greggy Show," and I decided that since I’m already giving them $4 a month for that show, pledging $5 to get each episode early every week was a fair in­ vestment. Also, they gave a taste of what the money will go towards by making a rap video with the San Francisco Giants player, Hunter Pence that I found hilarious. The reason I'm so careful about backing crowdfunding campaigns is because there’s pretty much no guarantee the product will ever see the light

of day. There actually isn't much regulation in place yet on crowdfunding campaigns, so the possibility of someone taking the money they collect and running with little-to-no repercussion is very real. Also, there’s usually a reason that the people turning to crowdfund­ ing couldn’tpull together fund­ ing in the firstplace. N o w that I’ve backed a couple of crowdfunding cam­ paigns, with the results turn­ ing out great for the first one, I might be a little more lenient in the future about what I de­ cide to fund, or not. One type of media that I don’t think I’ll ever fund is an audio podcast. I run a network of podcasts with my close friend Eden Rohatensky, and while getting a podcast together can frequent­ lyprove to be a challenge, we’ve never really been inhibited by cost. Sure, the base cost can add up to be a fair chunk of change, but I got by only spending about $70. I already had a lap­

top for school, and itcame with audio software pre-installed. The only other piece of the puzzle was a microphone, so that made up 100% of the cost. I’ve started to see audio pod­ casts pop up more and more on crowdfunding sites, especially Patreon, and it really bothers me. I think if a podcast is go­ ing to ask for donations to get off the ground, they should go to Kickstarter exclusively. W h y does an audio podcast need a monthly deposit of donations? A decent microphone will last years. Podcasts also only take about an hour or two at the most to record, and editing only takes up four or fivehours. I definitely think there will be a crackdown on sites like Kickstarter and Patreon in the near future, because more and more people are in itto swindle gullible consumers pop up ev­ ery day. No matter what hap­ pens, I think everyone should be more careful with their money in today’s world than ever before.

M e n ’s soccer wins five straight g a m e s Cullen Smith Staff W riter

It was a moment to remem­ ber. The Flying Dutch needed the shot to send the team into a sudden death shootout and Cal­ vin College’s Stephen Hooker calmly stepped up and hit the shot. The game was sent into sudden death penalty kicks, and with a subsequent goal by Tarwo Konbloa (’15), the Flying Dutch seized the M I A A Tour­ nament Championship. Unfortunately, rival Cal­ vin captured the 2013 regu­ lar season title 14-5-1, and the M I A A men’s soccer 2014 pre­ season Coaches' Poll ranked the Knights No. 1, five points over the Flying Dutchmen. After a series of games this weekend, however, the Flying Dutchmen appear to be ready to face off against the rest of their competition, including their rival, Calvin. The No. 8 Flying

Dutchmen soundly defeated both the Grace Bible Tigers and the Denison Big Red to end their non-conference schedule with a 5-1 record. A Thursday victory served as a great prelude for the Fly­ ing Dutchmen as they prepared for their Saturday game against Trine, shutting out the Grace Bible Tigers 5-0. With an as­ sist by senior Logan Sikkenga (’15), sophomore forward Josh Hagene (’17) scored in the 17th minute with a bottom corner shot from 6 yards out. Hagene’s goal ignited a shooting gallery for the Flying Dutchmen. In the four subse­ quent goals, senior midfielder Cameron Dice (’15) led the team with two unassisted goals in both halves. Sophomore Thom­ as Conerty (’17) and freshman Ryan Hanson (’18) also scored for the Flying Dutch, with Han­ son nailing an impressive 25

yard goal to cap off the scoring for the Dutchmen. Over the course of the game, Hope did not allow a single shot on goal, outshooting the Tigers 26-0. Hope continued with the same energy in their fourth consecutive win of the sea­ son, crushing the Denison Big Red 3-1. Again helping to lead the team was Dice, who seized his fourth goal of the season in the 24th minute. Following Dice,with an impressive as­ sist from junior Andreas Slette (T6), leading goalscorer Hagene was able to capitalize on his fifth goal of the season in the 25th minute, hitting a bullseye in the top right corner. Slette then pushed the lead to 3-0 with a rebound off the crossbar with only minutes remaining in the firsthalf. “Over these two games, ev­ eryone on our team got a chance to play, showing just how deep

our team is and how confident we are that each and every guy can go out on the field and per­ form," said Hagene, who led the team with five shots, four of them being shots on goal. The second halfonly saw one goal for Denison, allowing the Dutchmen to claim their fifth straight win and prepare to ini­ tiate M I A A play. “The next game is always our focus, but we are ready to take [Calvin] on, and we know they are a quality team, so we must come into that game in top form,” said Hagene when asked about the team's readiness to face their rival. The Flying Dutchmen have two more games before play­ ing the Knights of Calvin, facing off against Trine University on Sept. 17 and the Adrian Bull­ dogs on Sept. 20 at 7 p.m. The rivals compete Sept. 23 at4 p.m. away at Calvin.

Football victorious on Community Day Duncan MacLean Staff W riter

The Hope College football teak thrilled the Community Day crowd last Saturday with a 37-27 win over Augustana. The Ray and Sue Smith football sta­ dium was packed with a crowd of 2,459 people eager to watch Hope in theirfirsthome game of the season. Both teams suffered a loss in week one, making this a must win for both the Dutch­ men and the visiting Vikings. “Going into the Augus­ tana game, the coaches really ramped up the tempo and ur­ gency of our practices to get us ready,” said Rob Kish (’16). The game started shaky for Hope’s offense with a recovered fumble, but they quickly got it together. Brandon Zervas (T5) and Zac Boersema (’17) split the rushing game on the first drive while Kish picked apart the Augustana defense. Hope drove 83 yards down the field in 12 plays. The drive ended with a Kish touchdown pass to Jake Helm (’16) just six minutes into the game. Taking a long rush and twa passes to find the endzone, Au­ gustana wasted no time evening up the score. With 3 minutes and 58 sec­ onds left in the quarter, Hope

geance, taking the next two touchdowns. Kish dealt out both of them to Taylor Brynaet (15) and Matt Kroll (16). As the third quarter expired, Hope found themselves with the big­ gest lead of the game, up 30-20. The fourth quarter began with a bang. The first play saw Fresco break free and cash in a 67-yard touchdown run. With the lead back down to under a touchdown, Hope’s offense had some work to do. After a stellar 30-yard kick­ off return, Kish and the Dutch­ men worked their way down the field. Ittook nine plays for Hope to reach the goal fine and make i the first rushing touchdown of the day.
