Oberlin Bests DePauw 2-1

The DePauw men's soccer team opened North Coast Athletic Conference play on Saturday with a 2-1 loss at Oberlin.

It was Oberlin's first victory over the Tigers since 2013, who extend their winning streak to six matches and sit with a 7-1 overall record.

DePauw drops their second contest in their last three outings and now sit at 4-2-2 overall and 0-1 in the NCAC.

Oberlin set the tone early, within the opening minute in fact, when Trenton Bulucea scored his first goal of the season on a shot about 20 yards out.

DePauw played from behind for the following 83 minutes until Julian Gonzalez scored on a penalty kick at 83:57. It was his seventh overall and his 41st as a Tiger.

However, the Tigers could not keep the 1-1 tie intact to force an overtime as Oberlin's Nick Wertman scored at 86:58.

DePauw outshot Oberlin 20-15. They didn't have a single corner kick in the game, while Oberlin took eight.

Harrison Glover made six saves in net for the Tigers.

DePauw returns home Wednesday for a non-conference match against Thomas More.
