RICHMOND, Ind. - Hanover leaves Matlack-Messer victorious after three unanswered goals by the Panthers.
Hanover really maintained control of gameplay throughout the match. The Quakers could not get it going offensively. Through the game Earlham took zero shots on the goal. For the majority of the game, the ball was in Quaker territory. Between fouls and corner kicks there was more action than ideal in the goalie box.
Both teams used their entire bodies throughout the course of this game. Earlham's defense played extremely well making impressive saves, tackling each forward that dared stray into their territory and clearing as many balls as possible. They were just unable to stop the relentless attack of the Panthers.
Hanover scored one goal in the first half, and two in the second. The theme of their goals was good ball placement and not giving up on plays. Hanover forward Maggie Day scored two goals, and Cassidy Evanson scored one.
Women's soccer returns to actions at home on Wednesday, October 10 vs. Bluffton.
