RICHMOND, Ind - Men's soccer drops to 1-2 in conference after a 2 goal loss to Hanover.
There was a noticeable change of pace offensively for the Quakers as they built on the momentum of their last win, and no shortage of opportunities for Earlham to score. The Quakers only had one less shot on the goal throughout the game than the Panthers. Hanover scored goals on 50 percent of their shots on the goal, and the Panther defense did a slightly better job of stopping attacks.
The biggest difference makers in the game were how many more fouls the Quakers had and how many more corner kicks Hanover took. The fouls put the Panthers in great positions offensively throughout the game to take more, and easier shots. Earlham has 11 fouls to Hanover's five and two yellow cards. Corner kicks also flipped offensive momentum in favor of Hanover, and they had five more than Earlham.
Earlham is back in HCAC play on Wednesday, October 10 at Bluffton.
