Hanover, Ind. - Host Hanover scored late in the first half and added another in the second before the game's second lightning delay forced suspension of play in the 74th minute and gave the Panthers a 2-0 victory over DePauw. The Tigers dropped to 0-2, while the Panthers improved to 2-1.
Hanover's Bryn Rolfsen scored with just 1:52 left in the first half for the game's first goal and the Panthers took a 1-0 lead into the intermission. Lightning delayed the start of the second half and Hanover had a chance to expand the lead, but DePauw keeper Maya Caldwell stopped Ruby Kate Gray's penalty kick in the 57th minute. Brandi Brock, however, delivered a successful penalty kick two minutes later for the 2-0 lead.
Lightning then pulled the teams off the field and, with no lights at the field, the game was called due to darkness.
Hanover held a 15-7 edge in shots including 8-5 on goal and the Panthers led in corners, 4-0. Caldwell recorded six saves in goal for the Tigers, while Amanda Carmosino totaled five for Hanover.
The Tigers return to action on Saturday, September 8, when they host Capital at 7 p.m.
