Justin Berrens

Women’s SoccerEmily Buzicky provided virtually all of the Lawrence University offense on the week. The St. Paul, Minn., native scored four of Lawrence’s five goals on the week and earned her second career hat trick. In a 2-1 loss to MWC unbeaten Grinnell College on Saturday, Buzicky jumped on a rebound in the ninth minute and scored to give Lawrence a 1-0 lead. In a 4-0 win over Knox on Sunday, Buzicky assisted Greta Raaen on the game’s first goal and then scored the next three herself and that included two unassisted goals. It was her first natural hat trick and the second of her career, with the first coming in 2002. For the season, Buzicky has nine goals and two assists for 20 points.


Justin Berrens ran 35 times for 164 yards and a touchdown in Lawrence University’s 19-14 victory Saturday at Beloit College. The Waupaca native, who is averaging 124.8 yards per game and 4.3 yards per carrry on the season, got Lawrence on the board first with a 21-yard touchdown run in the first quarter. The game was classic Berrens, grinding out the yardage, as he had only four rushes of 10 yards or more. He helped secure the win by running the ball eight consecutive times, as Lawrence got two key first downs and ran 4:41 off the clock. By the time Beloit got the ball back, only 52 seconds remained in the game. Berrens is 23rd in the nation in rushing yards per game.
