Esports Splits Matches in Week 7; Wysocky Sweeps for Sixth Win
November 3, 2021 – The Lorain County Community College Esports squad went 2-2 for the second week in a row in NJCAAE competition. The Commodores record improves to 21-7 on the year after seven weeks of matches. Just two weeks remain in the fall season before postseason play beings for LCCC’s Super Smash Bros. squad.
“Solid week with some hard fought matches all around,” said Evan Walker. “Heading into the home stretch, we’re confident about where we’re at. We have a plan for success and we’re going to stick to it for these remaining weeks.”
Randy Wysocky (North Ridgeville, Ohio/North Ridgeville HS) got back on the winning track in week seven with a 3-0 sweep against Catawba Valley CC. Wysocky suffered his first loss in Week 6 but with the win this week he improves to 6-1 in the 2021 fall season. Matthew Coleman (Elyria, Ohio/Elyria HS) picked up another win via a forfeit with his opponent from Snow Community College. Coleman improves to 7-0 and remains the last player on LCCC with an unblemished record. He has won 13-straight rounds of play, two shy of Randy Wysocky’s 15 straight round victories to open the 2021 season. Coleman’s last round loss happened in week one on September 22, 2021.
Gavin Lincicome (Lagrange, Ohio/Keystone HS) battled in his match by winning round two to even the match at 1-1 but Alexandria Technical CC won the next two rounds to keep Lincicome from picking up the win. Avery Harssema (Oberlin, Ohio/Oberlin HS) grabbed a 2-1 lead in his match but he saw his undefeated record end with 2-3 loss as Hinds Community College’s player regrouped and won rounds four and five. Harssema falls to 6-1 on the season as the freshman was riding a seven-round winning streak heading into the match.
