ALLIANCE, Ohio -- Mount Union senior Colton Harsh (Ravenna / Southeast) scored the game-winner with just over two minutes to play to lift the Purple Raiders to a 2-1 win over Baldwin Wallace in an Ohio Athletic Conference game Wednesday at Mount Union Stadium.

Harsh, whose third goal of the season also clinched the Raiders a spot in next week's OAC Tournament, was one of five seniors honored before the start of the game along with Scott Welker (Solon), Jesse Tinney (Heidelberg, Pa. / Chartiers Valley), Nikolas Newhart (Mentor / Lake Catholic) and Joe Winiecki (Stow).

The game was scoreless until the 80th minute when junior Tyler Cooper (Chagrin Falls / Kenston) headed in his first goal of the season to give Mount Union a 1-0 lead, but Baldwin Wallace would tie the game just over six minutes later.

Mount Union now stands at 11-3-1 and 4-3-1 in the OAC while Baldwin Wallace drops to 7-9-2 and 2-5-1 in the OAC.

Mount Union finishes the regular season Saturday at home at 1 p.m. against Ohio Northern and a win would secure a home game in next week's conference tournament.
