A Nick Gassman 2-yard run with 57 seconds left lifted Walsh over Alderson Broaddus for a 42-39 victory on Senior Day at Tom Benson Saturday. The Cavaliers (3-6, 3-4) and Battlers (3-7, 2-5) exchanged leads six times in the shootout, including five times in the second half.
Walsh was edged by Findlay 24-16 in its final true road game of the season at Donnell Stadium on Saturday. The Cavaliers dropped to 2-5 overall and 2-3 in the G-MAC, while the Oilers improved to 5-3 and 3-2.
Fighting the elements, Walsh gave the G-MAC’s first place team all it could, but eventually fell to Hillsdale 28-9 Saturday evening. The Cavaliers dropped to 2-5 overall and 2-3 in the conference, while the Chargers improved to 7-1 and 6-0 in the same categories.
Coming off of one of the best defensive performances by anyone in the nation, Walsh welcomes Hillsdale to Tom Benson Stadium for Homecoming weekend. The Cavaliers (2-4, 2-2 G-MAC) most recently defeated Lake Erie 29-0 on Saturday evening, while the Chargers (6-1, 5-0 G-MAC) lead the conference standings after a 45-24 victory over Alderson Broaddus.
A dominant defense helped Walsh to its first shutout since joining the NCAA in a 29-0 blanking of Lake Erie at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium on Saturday evening. The Cavaliers (2-4, 2-2) allowed the Storm (0-7, 0-5) just 31 yards of total offense in their first shutout since 2011.
Walsh will attempt to get back to .500 in the G-MAC as it heads north to take on Lake Erie under the lights at Jack Britt Memorial Stadium on Saturday. The Cavaliers enter this week 1-4 overall and 1-2 in the conference, while the Storm are looking for their first win of the season at 0-6 and 0-4.
Walsh shutout a high-powered Ohio Dominican team in the second half, but couldn’t overcome an early deficit in a 20-10 defeat at Tom Benson Stadium Saturday evening. The Panthers (5-1, 3-1) jumped out to a 20-point lead and held off a Cavaliers (1-4, 1-2) rally in the second half.
As the season has progressed, so has Walsh’s football team as the Cavaliers have gotten better with each game. Now the Maroon and Gold (1-3, 1-1) prepares for perhaps their toughest opponent to date in Ohio Dominican (4-1, 2-1).
Marcus Shellenbarger has been named the Great Midwest Athletic Conference’s Defensive Player of the Week after helping Walsh to its first victory of the season. The defensive lineman from Mt. Vernon finished the game with six tackles, 2.5 of which were quarterback sacks, and forced and recovered a fumble in the Cavaliers’ 23-17 win at Kentucky Wesleyan.
Head Coach John Fankhauser has his first win of his career as the leading man of a football program as Walsh took down Kentucky Wesleyan 23-17 on Saturday afternoon. The Cavaliers (1-3, 1-1) jumped out to a 17-0 lead after the first quarter and held on as the Panthers (2-3, 1-2) chipped at the lead the rest of the way.
Coming off of its best game of the season, Walsh hits the road to Kentucky Wesleyan for the fourth game of the season. The Cavaliers (0-3, 0-1) took Tiffin to the limit last Saturday before suffering a 27-20 loss at the hands of the Dragons. The Panthers (2-2, 1-1) are also entering the weekend on an upswing as they won their second consecutive contest with a 44-38 decision over Malone.
It came down to the final minutes, but Walsh was unable to take down Tiffin as it fell 27-20 in its G-MAC opener at Tom Benson Stadium on Saturday. The Cavaliers (0-3, 0-1) played their best game of the season and had the unbeaten Dragons (4-0, 2-0) on their heels in the fourth, but a drive late in the fourth stalled and the visitors were able to run out the clock.
This weekend’s football game between Walsh and Jacksonville has been cancelled because of the impending weather from Hurricane Florence. The Cavaliers were scheduled to leave for Florida today for Saturday’s 1 p.m. kickoff with the Dolphins.
The home opener for Walsh didn’t go as well as hoped for in a 41-10 loss to Saginaw Valley State at Tom Benson Stadium on a rainy Saturday afternoon. The Cavaliers (0-2) played close with the Cardinals (2-0) for the first half of the game, but the visitors eventually pulled away.
Walsh returns to Tom Benson Stadium to take on Saginaw Valley State in the home opener tomorrow afternoon at 1. The Cavaliers are looking to rebound from last week's defeat at Wayne State, while the Cardinals cruised by Alderson Broaddus in Week 1 action.
Walsh fell to Wayne State in the season opener by a score of 31-0 in the Motor City on Thursday evening. The Cavaliers are back in action against another former conference foe in Saginaw Valley State for the home opener at Tom Benson Stadium.
The 24th season of Walsh football will kick off tomorrow night as the Cavaliers take on Wayne State in the Motor City. The former conference rivals are meeting each other for the fifth consecutive season and will open the year with each other the second year in a row.
The Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC) Football Preseason Coaches Poll presented by Under Armour for 2018 has been released and Walsh has been selected to finish fifth. The Cavaliers received 34 points in the nine-team field.
