Morrison Connects Twice in Shutout of Fighting Scots

September 1, 2012


Greencastle, Ind. - DePauw (2-0-0) finished off their play in the Robbie Dreher Memorial Wabash Classic with a flurry, defeating Monmouth, Ill. (0-1-0), 5-0, on Saturday at Boswell Field. One of the most dominant victories in recent DePauw history saw 10 different Tiger players register at least one point in the match.

Andy Morrison scored his first and second goals of the season and added an assist, while George Elliott tallied a score after scoring yesterday's game winner in overtime. Matt Reda and Matt Tamarkin also found the back of net with goals in the second half. Morrison, Dean Weaver, Adrian Ables, Matt Schoenfeld, Nate Snyder, Michael Deoliveira and Will Cobb accounted for DePauw’s seven assists in the contest.

Senior goalkeeper Tony Halterman minded the pipes for the first 75:36 of the match before being spelled by Stephen Buchholz for the final 14:24 of the joint shutout. Monmouth keeper, Konor Tempel, started the first game of his career, allowing three first half goals and blocking three Tigers chances. The Fighting Scots made a halftime goalie change, subbing in last season’s primary starter, Matt Schmidt over the final 45 minute, allowing two goals and stopping three shots.

DePauw not only dominated the scoreboard but the stat sheet as well, outshooting Monmouth, 18-2 and not allowing the Fighting Scots to register a shot on goal for the duration of the match while the Tigers accounted for 11.

DePauw will be back on the pitch at 7:30 p.m. Wednesday when it travels to Franklin (Ind.) for the first road test on the young season.
