Thunder hoping to get back on track
DePauw off to program best start, outscoring opponents 24-4
On Tuesday, Wheaton (Ill.) moved into the top 10 of the latest poll at No. 8. Later that evening though, the Thunder were toppled by Chicago on a goal with 37 seconds remaining, dropping their second consecutive game.
The loss snaps a 16-game home unbeaten streak for the Thunder dating back to October 2011. The loss also snaps a four game unbeaten streak against the Chicago dating back to 2006. Wheaton falls to 2-2 with the loss while the Maroons are now 3-0 on the season.
In a very defensive battle, both teams managed six shots on goal while Wheaton outshot the Maroons 9-8. Derek Babb made five saves and allowed one goal. Chicago's Brett Wiesen stopped six shots while allowing no goals.
The Thunder will hope to rebound from the pair of losses with a ranked matchup against No. 16 Washington (Mo.) on Saturday. The squad also has another matchup within the week against Carthage on Wednesday.
After a wild weekend at Boswell Field DePauw’s undefeated squad has jumped up 11 spots to No. 9 in the latest rankings.
The Tigers opened up NCAC play, picking up a 2-1 overtime win against conference foe Hiram. Adrian Ables scored DePauw’s first goal and Alieu Musa’s golden goal in overtime sealed the Tiger’s victory.
DePauw completed their weekend sweep with a 4-2 win against Olivet. A pair of Julian Gonzalez goals paced the Tigers, while Andy Morrison and Ables added insurance goals in the victory.
The undefeated Tigers are off to their best start in school history outscoring opponents 24-4 during their run. They will meet up with Kenyon on Saturday for their lone matchup of the weekend.
