Men's soccer stymied on the road by Wabash

Fellipe Busato

CRAWFORDSVILLE, Ind. – Despite an even mark in total shots, the Hanover men's soccer team was shutout on the road Sunday afternoon, falling at Wabash (Ind.), 2-0.

Both the Panthers (2-4-0) and Little Giants (5-1-1) tallied eight shots over 90 minutes of play, but it was Wabash who held a 7-2 edge on goal. Wabash scored a goal in the opening 10 minutes and another in the closing 10 minutes, as they ran their current unbeaten streak to five matches.

Hanover had its best two chances early in the match with shots from Fellipe Busato (Sao Paulo, Brazil) and Ian Waldrop (Louisville, Ky.). However, both of the Panther tries in the opening 14 minutes of play would be saved.

Despite allowing two goals, sophomore Will Bedel (Walton, Ky.) did make five saves, his second highest mark of the 2018 season. Offensively, freshman Evan Redmon (Louisville, Ky.) was the lone Panther with multiple shot attempts.

Hanover will look to bounce back and stay unbeaten at home when they welcome Spalding (Ky.) Tuesday, Sept. 18. The Panthers and Golden Eagles are slated for a 5 p.m. start at the Hanover Outdoor Athletic Complex.
