Tigers Hold On For 2-1 Victory

Cleveland, Ohio – The DePauw men's soccer team remained unbeaten after a 2-1 victory over Case Western Reserve on Sunday.

The win moves DePauw to 2-0-2 on the year after tying Marian in their last game out. It proved beneficial to get Zach Hoffman back, who put DePauw first on the board in the 35th minute off an assist from Julian Gonzalez.

Case Western Reserve hit the equalizer at 58:36 on Jacob Grindel's first goal of the year. It took nearly 30 minutes for DePauw to hit the game-winner, but they eventually did on a penalty kick goal from Gonzalez.

It was Gonzalez's third goal on the season, which have all come via the penalty kick.

Case Western Reserve made a push at the end with three shots in the final four minutes, but DePauw goalie Harrison Glover was up to the task saving both of the shots on goal. Glover made eight saves total for his second win of the year.

Case Western Reserve took 13 corners to DePauw's seven. They also outshot the Tigers 15-13.

The Tigers return to action Wednesday when they travel to Franklin.
