Greencastle, Ind. - The DePauw men's soccer squad (4-0-2) put their top-25 ranking on the line Wednesday night against Hanover College (1-2-2), tying the Panthers, 0-0, on a cool night at Boswell Field.
DePauw dominated the match on both ends, outshooting the Panthers, 26-4. The 26 shots and 22 shot advantage by the Tigers are the most since a 3-1 victory over Hanover last season (9/6/2011) when DePauw had 31 and 26, respectively. Among the several solid scoring chances the Tigers had throughout the contest were a pair of shots by Andy Morrison which hit the post.
Additionally, the Tigers continued their outstanding defensive play by extending their streak of not allowing an opposing player to score to just under 600 minutes (598:57) of game time (only opposing player goal came 1:34 into first game of season).
DePauw once again sent out goalkeeper Tony Halterman to be their last line of defense. Halterman stopped two shots in the match, registering his fourth shutout on the season.
Trevor Korfhagen blocked 10 Tigers shots en route to notching his second straight shutout for the Panthers and continues his streak of not allowing a goal in regulation time to three matches.
The DePauw men's soccer squad opens North Coast Athletic Conference action on Saturday, September 15 at 2:30 p.m. at Boswell Field against Denison.
