Klein's PK Sends DePauw to 1-1 Tie Against Ohio Wesleyan

Greencastle, Ind. -- Jay Klein's first collegiate goal kept DePauw out of the loss column and gave them a point in the NCAC standings as the Tigers and Ohio Wesleyan played to a 1-1 tie on Wednesday.

Klein was a benefactor of a handball in the box that gave DePauw a penalty kick opportunity in the 78th minute. After the Tigers missed their first penalty kick just 46 seconds earlier behind Taras Tataryn, Klein made his count.

From there on both teams played evenly. Ohio Wesleyan had a look and actually put a ball past keeper Austin Bodner, but an offsides call erased the potential goal. Both teams took two shots in the extra time.

Bodner made four saves in net. His counterpart J.P. Baughman made five.

DePauw outshot Ohio Wesleyan 14-13 and took the corner advantage 6-4.

The Tigers move to 4-4-3 overall and 1-1-2 in the NCAC. The Battling Bishops, who are unbeaten in NCAC play so far, took their first tie, moving to 7-5-1 and 3-0-1 in conference.

DePauw will travel to Allegheny on Saturday for their next match.
