DePauw Steadily Pulls Away to Drop Wooster 4-0
DePauw University used a steady offensive attack and stout play on defense to win its 12th-straight field hockey game, dropping The College of Wooster 4-0 in a North Coast Athletic Conference match-up Saturday afternoon at Greencastle, Ind.
The Tigers (12-1, 9-0 NCAC) only allowed the Fighting Scots (7-9, 6-6 NCAC) to fire off three shots in the contest, while their offense totaled 15 shot attempts, including four that rattled the cage.
Kimberly Trainor scored just 2:30 into the action, and then Bridgette Shamleffer added a pair of goals near the 9:00 and 22:00 minute marks to give her team a 3-0 lead at the break.
Wooster clamped down a bit in the second half, allowing just five shots and one goal to Margaret Ellis in the 41st minute, but the Scot offense still wasn't able to penetrate a DePauw defense that has allowed just three goals in conference play all season long.
Next, Wooster will host Oberlin College Oct. 25 at 4:30 p.m.
