ISU to host annual music festivalJoshua JulianReporter

The Contemporary Music Festival is one of the ISU School of Music’s most important educational events and is one of the longest running contemporary music festivals in the nation. Kurt Fowler, a professor of music at ISU, said that the festival turns 45 this year and continues to give students and community members a glimpse into the lives of professional composers and performers, promotes the work of young American composers and generates public interest in modern music.

This year’s festival will take place Oct. 26-28, 2011 and will feature the music of internationally acclaimed composer Eric Ewazen. The festival opens with a collage showcase performance given by ISU faculty and students followed by two days consisting of thirteen performances, educational lectures, and social activities.

The Indiana Statesman is published Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays, except during exam periods and university breaks, and is published three times during the summer. The Indiana Statesman was founded May 16, 1929, the same year that Indiana State Normal School became Indiana State Teachers College. The newspaper began in December 1879 as the State Normal News. In November 1895, the paper was first issued as the Normal Advance. Members of the ISU community are welcome to take a single copy of each issue of this newspaper. The unauthorized taking of multiple copies, however, may constitute theft, which is a crime, even with free publications. Thefts will be reported to campus police for possible prosecution and/or for other disciplinary actions.The Indiana Statesman exists for four main reasons: to provide the ISU community with news and information, to serve the campus as a public forum for student and reader comments, to offer student staff members chances to apply their skills in different aspects of a news publication, and to give students leadership opportunities.

Chants grew louder and louder, often met with the approval of car horns, Friday afternoon in downtown Terre Haute.

“They got bailed out, we got sold out,” shouted members of Occupy Terre Haute, standing out-side Wells Fargo & Company at the intersection of Fourth Street and Wabash Avenue.

The group, inspired by Occupy Wall Street and an offshoot of the national “We are the 99 percent” movement protesting corporate greed and influ-ence, conducted a peaceful march for economic equality. They walked from Dede Plaza to Chestnut Street and down to the financial services company, which received a bailout from the U.S. government in the midst of the 2008 banking crisis.

About 16 people stood outside the company, holding signs showing various slogans from “Cor-porate Greed + Fox News = Broken Government” to “I can’t afford a lobbyist, so I made this sign.”

Employees at Wells Fargo acknowledged the pro-test but declined comment, citing company policy.

The group crossed Wabash Avenue and marched to Max Ehrmann Plaza at Seventh Street and Wa-bash.

Along the way, they chanted “Bail out the peo-ple,” as some drivers honked in approval and peo-ple watched from office windows.

One protestor shouted to a woman in her vehicle that the government used her taxpayer money to write bailout checks to corporations.

“Did you get one?” he asked, as the woman turned onto Seventh Street.

“Uh, no,” she responded.Occupy Terre Haute began organizing last week,

emphasizing a peaceful approach to speaking out against what they believe is an unfair difference in wealth between the very wealthy and the rest of Americans.

Steve Kash, an instructor at Ivy Tech Communi-ty College, was among the local residents who met in Dede Plaza before the march. Kash said he was

disappointed with the current government and put most of the blame on Congress.

“At the root of many of these problems is lobby-ists and corporate greed,” said Kash, who said he was politically moderate.

Terre Haute resident Brian Morton said he felt it was important to be involved in the beginning of the protest.

“I don’t think this is going to be a short-term movement,” Morton said.

The group planned another appearance Monday evening outside the Vigo County Courthouse.

Morton told the group they should begin con-sidering ways to make a daily presence in the com-munity, such as additional marches in high-traffic areas. Occupy Terre Haute planned the courthouse appearance to attract rush hour drivers.

Terre Haute mayoral candidate Fred Nation speaks to the press about his jobs plan Thursday afternoon at his downtown campaign headquarters (Photo by Kacie Daughterty)

Tamera rhodesReporter

Terre Haute mayoral candidate Fred Nation said ISU and other colleges and universities in Terre Haute are positive resources for job creation.

Nation, a Democrat challenging Republican incumbent Duke Bennett in next month’s general municipal election, said he would make job cre-ation his top priority if elected mayor.

He said Terre Haute needs “high skill and high-wage jobs … the kind of jobs to raise families on.”

Nation’s jobs plan, revealed during a news con-ference at his downtown campaign headquarters at Fifth Street and Wabash Avenue last week, consists of strengthening partnerships, advancing existing

business, attracting new business and accelerating small and medium-sized businesses.

In addition, Nation plans on establishing an initiative called Grow Entrepreneurship Together-Terre Haute, or GET-TH, to create citywide busi-ness incubator programs.

Within the first 100 days he’s in office, Nation said he would begin summits and programs to sup-port job creation.

Nation said he felt current city leadership is lack-ing in the employment area and called Bennett a part of a team, not a leader on the issue.

“I’ll be that leader … I’ll do whatever it takes to find new jobs for our community,” he said.

A message seeking comment was sent to Ben-nett’s mayoral e-mail account Saturday.

Research conducted by professors at Indiana State University shows that bullying and cyberbullying doesn’t come to an end with high school.

“We hoped that maturity happens at some point,” said Bridget Roberts-Pittman, assistant professor of counsel-ing. “But is an 18-year-old senior any different than an 18-year-old college freshman?”

Roberts-Pittman and Christine MacDonald, profes-sor of educational and school psychology, said little research has been conducted on bullying and cyberbul-lying among college students. They decided to help fill in that gap.

“We got into looking at college students because there are studies on elementary, junior high, high school and the workplace,” MacDonald said. “There’s nothing on colleges. It doesn’t just stop when they turn 18.”

In the study, MacDonald and Roberts-Pittman found that almost 22 percent of college students reported be-ing cyberbullied while 15 percent reported being bul-lied. Cyberbullying occurs when new technology such as social networking , text messaging or instant messag-ing is used to harass others with harmful text or images. Bullying is defined as when a person attacks another verbally, attacks another physically, makes obscene gestures or intentionally isolates another from a social

group.The study also showed that 38 percent of students

knew someone who had been cyberbullied while almost 9 percent reported cyberbullying someone else. Com-paratively, research on kindergarten through 12th grade students suggests that as many as 25 percent of school age children have reported being cyberbullied and also 25 percent report that they have cyberbullied another student.

“You’d normally think that wouldn’t happen,” Mac-Donald said regarding the students reporting their own cyberbullying. “The real number may be higher.”

Of college students who reported being cyberbullied, 25 percent reported being harassed through a social networking site, 21 percent reported that they received harmful text messages, 16 percent receiving such harm-ful communication through e-mail, and 13 percent through instant messages.

“You don’t have to be the biggest or the strongest or have the best clothes, now you can say, ‘I have a key-board,’” Roberts-Pittman said about cyberbullying.

In bullying, 42 percent reported seeing someone be-ing bullied by another student while about 8 percent reported bullying another student. Additionally, almost 15 percent reported seeing a professor bully a student while 4 percent reported that they had been bullied by a professor.

“Students who are different in some way seem to be

singled out. If it’s by ethnicity or sexual orientation, we don’t know. We don’t have enough data,” MacDonald said.

Universities and colleges must take steps to create safe environments, according to the professors.

“We really believe there’s a whole dimension to bul-lying from minor rude behavior like not saying hello to assault at the other end,” MacDonald said. “By interven-ing at minor behaviors, we can stop more severe nega-tive behaviors.”

Intervention must take place from the residence halls to the classrooms.

“We recommend trying to change the climate,” Rob-erts-Pittman said.

From kindergarten through 12th grade research, they know that anti-bullying measures only work when its enforced systemwide, and the researchers recommend that happen at universities as well.

“We must insist on civil and respectful behavior,” MacDonald said.

They said those being bullied, must come forward and speak out about it.

“Keep talking about it until someone is willing to do something,” MacDonald said.

They also suggested recruiting allies to have someone advocate for them whether it’s a resident assistant, stu-dent ombudsman or a professor.

“Come forward,” Roberts-Pittman said.

Statesman editorial

Although meetings for Occupy Terre Haute have been modest so far, the group hopes to spread awareness through their Facebook page.

The page is “liked” by nearly 200 people, a small fraction of Terre Haute’s population, but still a promising beginning.

Since Facebook’s debut, society has found a number of negative uses for the networking site—cyber bullying, identity theft, stalking and procrasti-nating.

Lately, however, people have enlisted Facebook as a tool in crusades against failing governments, corrupt politicians and life-threatening ill-nesses like breast cancer.

It is about time that social networking sites are used for the greater good. Whether they realize it or not, Occupy Terre Haute is setting an example.

Not only are they raising awareness for their organization, they are also try-ing to unite Terre Haute’s residents.

By taking to Facebook, they are showing that they are serious about their efforts, as well as their intentions of bringing the town together.

This is a historical time for our country; we’re changing the way we think about politics, and now we’re changing the way we think about social media.

We hope that this has a domino effect in other areas also and encourages Terre Haute’s citizens to take a stand.

For more information on Occupy Terre Haute, check out their Facebook page.

Everyone has that one specific type of food that they could easily eat every day. So what is your favor-ite type of food or even your favorite restaurant?

To most of you, this may sound a little weird, but to me, Terre Haute is a tad bit on the big side, especially

compared to the small town I come from. We have many small family- owned restaurants where I am from, and here I only know the widely known restaurants, such as Olive Gar-den and Buffalo Wild Wings.

Unfortunately, I am the world’s pickiest eater. When I go out to eat, eight out of ten times you will most likely see me order off the kid’s menu, especially when it comes to a seafood place. I do not like to try new foods that look fun-ny or have a weird name. I am part Italian, which is probably why my favorite type of food is Italian, but surprisingly that is not associated with my favorite restaurants.

There are two restaurants in the whole world that I could eat at ev-ery single day, one happens to be Texas Roadhouse. Obviously it is a widely known restaurant, and there is actually one here in Terre Haute. I am completely obsessed with their rolls and cinnamon butter. Some-times I eat too many rolls that I

fill myself up before I can get my chicken strips. Yes, chicken strips! I celebrate my birthday there ev-ery year, not only because it is one of my favorite restaurants, but also because they bring out a saddle for me to sit on while they sing to me in front of the entire place. If you have never been to Texas Roadhouse, I strongly advise you to go, you will not regret it.

My other favorite restaurant is a small family owned restaurant back home called Gross’ Burgers in We-estville, Ill. Do not be fooled by the name, they have the world’s best burgers and fries. In a way, their burgers remind me a lot of Steak n’ Shake’s burgers because they are

extremely thin as well. But my fa-vorite part of go-ing there is for the fries. They fill half your bag full of garlic-salt-covered fries. Unfortunate-ly, most of you will never experience this deliciousness

because you are not going to drive an hour for food, but if for some reason you happen to drive through Westville, be sure to make a pit stop at this delicious family- owned res-taurant.

There are probably many family owned restaurants around here as well, but they are not widely known, so most people do not know about them.

Over the next several years of being a student here and living in Terre Haute, I hope to learn more about where the family-owned res-taurants are and possibly finding a new favorite place to eat.

For the last decade or so, one thing has been majorly crippling the music industry: illegal downloading.

We are so unwilling to pay artists for their work that it has caused music sales to drop 47 percent over the last ten years, according to the Recording Industry Association of America.

It is to the point where the industry is saying enough is enough and has spent a reported 64 million dollars on lawsuits as of 2008, and it has no doubt gone up since them.

I get that there is a lesson to be learned about pirating mu-sic, but when you are losing that much money, it is fair to say you are doing it wrong.

This is part of the reason the industry has started moving away from punishing the offenders and has put more effort into building alternative options to illegal downloading.

With the popularity of music sites like Pandora, Spotify and YouTube, the industry is hoping that these will provide a way

for us to still enjoy free music and for their artists and other important workers to get paid. Almost all of these also have the ability to be upgraded for a small fee that will allow you to listen without commercials or be able to put it on a device or similar perks that could arguably make it worth your while.

I can understand why the music industry is all up in arms.

You can’t just walk into a store, take a video game, and walk out without paying. It is a more obvious and straightforward offense where pirating music can be done from the comfort of your own home, and no one is really there to give you a slap on the wrist for it.

This is the problem with everything being digital instead of tangible. Instead of a physical CD or cassette where there isn’t really an efficient way to share things, you just have a file that you can download and upload at your discretion just like I can do with my homework everyday.

I like how convenient everything is and I am completely okay with being able to share information, and subsequently music, in all the ways we do, but I am also ecstatic that they have stopped throwing money at small time lawsuits and started finding effective alternatives to illegal pirating.

We live in an age of technology where a downloader is going to download whether it is legal or not.

Changing the battle strategy to work around the mentality of a generation is probably going to be more effective than suing everyone.

I love Pandora and YouTube, and I am pretty sure I would have a conniption if they weren’t around and free to use. I am also glad that the music industry is

starting to use these avenues as a way to deter illegal downloading. Yeah, there are kids that are still going to do it, but with how easy and accessible the alternative

options are we there should be a pretty big decrease because we get the free music we want and the industry gets the money from the music produced that they want.

I have a bit of a confession to make, and it can be embarrassing at times. I am a huge Johnny Depp fan. Not a stalker kind of fan, but I’m fairly certain that I would marry the guy if I got the chance. That being said, I will try my best to not infuse this article with too much Johnny Depp love. So here goes.

“The Rum Diary” opens this Friday, and I don’t know whether to be really excited about it or just let it fall by the wayside. This film is based on the novel of the same name written by Hunter S. Thompson, who was responsible for the acid trip-inducing story that was “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

I’ll admit that I was a bit excited to see “Fear and Loath-ing in Las Vegas.” Maybe that was because I didn’t have any idea how the movie would pan out, or because it had Johnny Depp in it.

It was awful in my opinion. I realized copious amounts of drugs were involved, as the main character so calmly stated “We had two bags of grass, seventy-five pellets of

mescaline, five sheets of high-powered blotter acid, a saltshaker half-full of co-caine, and a whole galaxy of multi-colored uppers, downers, screamers, laugh-ers ... Also, a quart of tequila, a quart of rum, a case of beer, a pint of raw ether and two dozen amyls.”

There was still no concrete story line. You’d have to be on acid yourself to make heads or tails of any of it, and even then you’d probably kill yourself just to end the madness and get rid of the

bats. “The Rum Diary,” however, looks like it will be a little bit better. For one, there’s only rum

involved, which can get you pretty drunk but won’t be able to mess you up nearly as bad. I do find it funny that the screenwriter, who was a recovering alcoholic, had writer’s block that he eventually cured by drinking heavily until the movie was finished.

Anyway, this film looks to have a comprehensible plot line, and the movie as a whole looks interesting.

It’s about the art of journalism before anyone really knew what journalism was. Johnny Depp looks like he’s great for the role as the wondering journal-ist/rum connoisseur, and the supporting cast look like they know what they’re doing too. This has just the right mix of hilarity and peculiarity to make this movie much more successful than “Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.”

Am I going to see this movie? Yes, I more than likely will and not just for the Depp factor. Anyone could have taken this topic of a journalist with a big scoop and turned it into some run of the mill, cookie cutter script that we’ve all seen a thousand times.

Thanks to the talents of the late Thompson and the great cast and writers involved, we are seeing something unique for our time—something with a mes-sage that will make you think, while also confusing the hell out of you and mak-ing you laugh along the way.

I suggest that you find a drinking buddy and go see “The Rum Diary.” He can’t drink it all by himself anyway.

Some new shows don’t have the most original plot structure. All the cop and hospital dramas tend to be the same. The formula seems to

be working, and those shows like “Law and Order SVU” and “Grey’s Anatomy” are both still on the air going strong.

But when a show comes along that has a new, different storyline, one that is smart, original and hasn’t been beaten to death, people jump on it, myself included.

Just look at “Glee.” It was a new show with a fresh idea; a show about a group of high school misfits who just happen to break into song every once in a while, and it turned into a phenomenon.

Sure, their second season was crappy, but they are back on track this year. When I first looked at the list of new shows this year and read most of the

summarys two shows stood out to me as the most original new shows. They were ABC’s “Once Upon A Time” and NBC’s “Grimm.”

“Once Upon A Time” centers on Emma Swan, a 28-year-old bail bondsperson. She’s been tak-ing care of herself since she was abandoned as a baby. But when Henry—the son she gave up 10 years ago—finds her, everything changes.

Henry is desperate for his mom’s help and thinks that Emma is actually the long, lost daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming.

Yes, the actual Snow White and Prince Charming. Even stranger, Henry believes that Storybrooke, the sleepy New England town he calls home,

is really part of a curse cast by the Evil Queen, freezing fairytale characters in the modern world with no memory of their former selves.

The number one thing this show has going for it is that they have the two writers from “Lost” penning the scripts.

When “Lost” was in its hay day, it was unstoppable, and there were shows that tried to copy its success but failed (I’m talking about you “Flash Forward” and “The Event”).

Hopefully, lightning can strike twice with this fantasy drama. The show premiered yesterday so you can still catch it on Hulu. Check it out and see what it has in store.

“Grimm” is set in present-day Portland, Oregon. This series puts a new twist on the Brothers Grimm stories in which a homicide detective learns that he is a descendent of a group of hunt-ers known as “Grimms,” who fight to keep humanity safe from the supernatural creatures of the world.

Upon learning of his destiny and that he is the last of his kind, he has to protect every living soul from the sinister storybook characters that have infiltrated the real world.

This is the show I’m most excited about. I love the idea of putting a new twist on the old fairy tales we all know and love.

The entire festival is constructed to be an educational event, combining outreach to public schools, educational sessions, perfor-mances and social events. School children, university students and community mem-bers all have an opportunity to learn about a prominent, living, professional composer and to explore music being written today.

Fowler said that students can explore the process of creating great works of music, dis-cuss the importance of new music and hear new music come alive in performance. The festival provides these opportunities for free

The Contemporary Music Festival promotes musical expression with an emphasis on American Music. 2011 marks the 45th anniversary. (Photo courtesy of ISU Communications and Marketing)

and is the only opportunity of its kind in the area.

Fowler stated that the festival has, since its inception in 1967, developed a strong national reputation for the performance and creation of new music. Some of the most important composers of contemporary clas-sical music have come to participate in the festival, including 18 Pulitzer Prize win-ners and five recipients of the Grawemeyer Award.

He said it is quite stunning to look through the list of guest composers and see how many of the great modern composers have been a part of the festival. Another important feature is that the festival stands

alone among similar university events in hosting a professional orchestra as a resident ensemble. In addition, two annual national composition competi-tions provide emerging composers the invaluable experience of hearing their works performed live.

Fowler said that there will be a great deal of variety for concert goers during this festival. Out of a total of thirteen events, seven concerts will be pre-sented. Works of Eric Ewazen’s will be performed during each of the concerts, including Shadowcatcher for brass quintet and wind ensemble, Cascadian Concerto for wind quintet and piano, Colchester Fantasy for brass quintet, Ballade, Pastorale & Dance for flute, horn and piano, Rhapsody for saxo-phone quartet, Chamber Symphony for chamber orchestra and Old Settler’s Picnic for youth orchestra.

The performers for the scheduled pieces include the Indianapolis Cham-ber Orchestra, festival orchestra-in-residence, The Ambassador Brass & Chicago Saxophone Quartet, festival guest artists, ISU student ensembles and faculty members and the Cross-roads of America Youth Symphony

“This year’s festival, in particular, will be very appealing. The music of our guest composer, Eric Ewazen, is ex-tremely accessible, fun and uplifting,” Fowler said. “His music can be heard on over 60 commercially released

CDs, and over 400 Youtube clips and has been performed throughout the world.”

In addition to the professional en-sembles, the festival committee will collabo-rate with the Crossroads of America Youth Symphony for the first time this year. The youth symphony will be showcased on the opening concert this Wednesday, Oct. 26, at 7:30 p.m.

Another feature new to the festival this year is support for local charity drives. Fowl-er said that all festival events and concerts are free and open to the public. The festival committee asks attendees to consider bring-ing non-perishable canned food for the Wednesday and Thursday evening concerts to support local food charities. During the Friday evening Indianapolis Chamber Or-chestra concert, monetary donations will be accepted for the ISU United Way fund drive.

Roby G. George, Indiana State University School of Music’s director of bands conducted a concert with the Wind Orchestra on Thurs-day, Oct. 20 at 7:30 p.m. in Tirey Hall’s Tilson Auditorium.

The title of the concert, Colors, Feelings, and Images, was a reflection upon the moods of the works performed at the concert. George intended for the program “to be of a lighter, more entertaining nature, with music that is easy to listen to and enjoy.”

The most well known work performed as the opener of the Thursday evening concert was Leonard Bernstein’s Overture to Can-dide casually known as the Candid Overture. This band classic was followed by the virtu-ous composition based on four colors, Yellow, Red, Blue and Green which featured faculty artist Randy Mitchell on trombone.

The next two works on the program were described by conductor George as “the most evocative on the program.” Luigi Zaninelli, the composer of Roma Sacra, is known by performers and audiences around the world for work that excites the senses and stimulates the mind.

The penultimate work on the program by composer Christopher Theofindis, “I Wander the World in a Dream of My Own Making is an aural exploration of the compositional process “where writing a piece of music is like creating a dream that you want to have.” The concert will close with composer Philip Sparke’s impressions from a trip to New York in his work entitled A Weekend in New York.

Indiana State hosted the 2011 Univer-sity Aviation Association national confer-ence at the Hyatt Regency hotel in down-town Indianapolis. About 300 members of the aviation group, along with vendors and members of companies working in the airline industry attended the three-day conference. The gathering included exhi-bitions, industry tours and presentations on topics ranging from the use of social media among collegiate aviation faculty members to unmanned aerial systems.

“For us to be able to host was really an incredible event,” Harry Minniear, chair of the aviation technology department in ISU’s College of Technology, said. “This is something that gives the university and our aviation program national recognition and visibility.”

Aviation technology students and facul-ty members from ISU volunteered to work the event, and some students also attended the panel discussions and presentations. During one of the discussions, Norton, an aviation management major from Mar-shall, Ill., gave her suggestion in response to a group that was placing responsibility of learning on the students.

Richard Baker, assistant professor in the aviation technology department, repre-sented ISU on a three-member panel dis-cussion about unmanned aerial systems. Baker, along with John B. Bridewell of the University of North Dakota and Kyle Sny-der of Middle Tennessee State University, discussed their institutions’ approach to developing their programs.

Only five universities in the country have established unmanned aerial systems programs, Baker said who was pleased with the more than 30 people who at-tended the presentation. Some people wanted more information about the topic,

he added.“It was well received,” Baker said of

the presentation. “We had a lot of people come up after the presentation was over and had individual questions, and we re-ceived some feedback about the fact that they would like to see a workshop next year on this topic.”

Aviation major Christian Reid was among those who learned more about un-manned systems. Reid also volunteered to work the conference. While there, he learned more about some of the jobs in the aviation industry, which he first learned more about in his studies at Indiana State.

“I hope to be a professional pilot all my life,” Reid said. “But, at the same time, when you get into an airline or a corpo-rate company, your degree in management would allow you to have other jobs in the field.”

Indiana State garnered the right to host the conference through a competitive se-lection process. ISU submitted a proposal

and learned two years ago that the univer-sity would host the conference.

“As it goes, we’re not one of the larger aviation programs out there,” Minniear said. “We’re considered to be fairly small, and for us to go head-to-head with a lot of the big universities and be awarded this conference was something very special for us.”

The conference also included an awards banquet, where Troy Allen, associate pro-fessor of aviation technology and assistant dean in the College of Graduate and Pro-fessional Studies at ISU, received the Frank E. Sorenson Award from the UAA. The So-renson Award recognizes a UAA member who has made significant contributions to research and scholarship in aviation, the organization’s website states.

“I was very happy to bring recognition to the university that I care deeply about, and I am honored to receive the award,” Allen said, who added that UAA President Kurt Barnhart nominated him.

The Indiana State University women’s soccer fell 0-1 to the Creighton University Bluejays in the final game of the 2011 regular season. The Sycamores now wait on other conference teams to finish regular season play to know if the team will be competing in the 2011 Missouri Valley Conference Tournament.

The loss dropped the Sycamores overall record for the season to 4-13-0, 1-5-0 in the Missouri Valley Conference (MVC). The Bluejays improved their record to 9-5-2 overall, 4-0-1 in the MVC.

The Sycamores now wait to confirm whether they will be eligible to play in the upcoming MVC tournament. Indiana State women’s soccer is currently sitting sixth and is the final seed for the upcoming State Farm Missouri Valley Conference Tournament. The team is tied with the Drake University Bulldogs (1-3) and ahead the University of Evansville Purple Aces (0-4). Depending on the results of the match the Sycamores will be in their fourth consecutive

postseason appearance. The first half of play ended with neither team being able to score. The

Sycamores outscored the Bluejays in the first half 3-1 in shots and 2-0 in corner kicks.

The Sycamores were led in shots by freshman forward Alexandra Rodas and senior forward Jessica Rosenberg. In the 16th minute of play, senior goalkeeper Emily Lahay came away with a save.

Creighton dominated the second half as the Bluejays pressured the Sycamore defense heavily with several shots. In the 67th minute, the Bluejays managed to break the Sycamore defense with a shot from outside the penalty box, finding the back of the net.

The Bluejays outscored the Sycamores 12-3 in shots in the second half and took six corner kicks. Lahay came away with three saves in goal.

Teams making it to the conference tournament will be scheduled Thursday.

The Indiana State University football team fell14-17 to Illinois State University despite a strong fourth quarter effort Saturday.

Going into the fourth quarter, the Syca-mores were down by 11 points (6-17). With 13:21 remaining in the quarter, the Sycamores began a scoring drive that would take 13 plays and cover 75 yards. Junior defensive lineman Ben Obaseki rushed for a one-yard touchdown with 6:59 remaining on the clock. Following the touchdown, the Sycamores made a two-point conversion, bringing them within three. Senior quarterback Ronnie Fouch found soph-omore wide receiver Leonard Riston in the end zone to keep hopes alive for the Sycamores.

The Sycamore special teams forced a fumble on the following kick-off thanks to Demory Lawshe with senior Alex Sewall recovering the ball for the Sycamores. The fumble gave Indi-ana State excellent field position as the ball was spotted on the Redbird’s 14-yard line. Howev-er, the Sycamores could not capitalize as pen-alties and incomplete passes forced the team to a field goal. Freshman place kicker Tanner Fritschle attempted the 41-yard field goal but missed.

The Redbirds began their drive at their 23-yard line, but the Sycamore defense forced a three and out, giving ISU another opportunity with 3:45 remaining in the fourth quarter. The Sycamores began their drive at their own 45-yard line, but the offense struggled, there were once again miscommunications between quar-terback and receivers and costly penalties. As a result, the team was forced into a fourth and very long situation with 2:12 remaining in the quarter but were unable to score, allowing the Redbirds to hold on for the victory.

The loss dropped the Sycamores’ overall re-cord to 5-3, 3-2 in the Missouri Valley Football Conference (MVFC). The Redbirds improved their record to the same as the Sycamores. The teams are currently tied for third place in the conference.

On offense, Fouch threw 10-25 for 175 yards and one touchdown. Sophomore running back Shakir Bell led the team on the ground with 123 yards on 27 attempts.

On defense, Calvin Burnett led the Syca-mores with 11 tackles (9 solo, 2 assisted).

The Redbirds won the toss but deferred. The Sycamores received the ball on their four-yard line and drove down the field to the Redbird 30-yard line before, on fourth and nine, the Sycamores turned the ball over on downs.

Defenses held both teams following the opening drive to three-and-outs until, with 1:34 remaining in the first quarter, the Red-birds got on the scoreboard with a 40-yard field goal.

With 8:57 remaining in the second quarter, the Sycamores got on the scoreboard. Fouch threw a 77-yard pass to Jones. The extra point was blocked by an Illinois State defender and returned to mid-field before a fumble was forced and downed by the Sycamores.

The Redbirds would regain the lead heading into the half with a one-yard touchdown run with 1:13 remaining. At the end of the half, the score stood at 10-6 Redbirds.

Illinois State extended their lead to 17 in the third quarter with a 10-yard touchdown pass and hung on for the victory.

Indiana State will be in action at the Memo-rial Stadium Nov. 5 when they host North Da-kota State. Kick off is scheduled for 2:05 p.m.
