Tigers Shock Second-Ranked Lords

For the second straight season the DePauw men's soccer team pulled the upset against Kenyon in the NCAC regular season, this time with a 2-1 win over the second-ranked Lords.

Last year, the Tigers knocked off Kenyon with a 1-0 overtime win when the Lords were the top-ranked team in Division III.

On Saturday, DePauw made the most of their opportunities after being outshot 17-9. They struck first in the 33rd minute after E.J. Moore made good of a direct kick on top of the goal box. That gave DePauw a 1-0 lead at halftime.

DePauw furthered their lead in the 72nd minute with Jonathan Wheeler's first goal of the year. Zach Hoffman found him on the left side of the field for the assist.

Kenyon cut the lead six minutes later with a goal from Henry Myers. The Lords continued to make opportunities, but DePauw goalie Harrison Glover made the saves to hold them off.

Glover made eight saves to improve his record to 6-2-2.

Kenyon committed 20 fouls to DePauw's 14. The game also saw a combined eight yellow cards.

The Tigers lead the all-time series 11-1-3.

After the latest rankings came out last Tuesday the Lords have taken two losses in a row, the first being a 1-0 result against Case. Kenyon is 8-2 overall and 1-1 in the NCAC.

The Tigers are now 6-2-2 overall and 1-1 in the NCAC. They head to Hiram for an afternoon contest next Saturday.
