Soccer takes down DePauw, makes Playoffs
Jake Chrisman ’20-Staff Writer- After a heartbreaking 1-0 loss at Oberlin College this past weekend, the Little Giant soccer team jumped back in and claimed a key conference victory over DePauw University this past Wednesday to improve to 10-5-1. In a physical NCAC match, the Little Giants stood above the Tigers with a 2-1 lead when the clock struck zero. Scoring for the Little Giants was Spase Dorsuleski ’18 and Cory Sims ’18.

The Little Giants dominated the first half. The net was only found one time in the 22nd minute when Sims found Dorsuleski, who gave the Little Giants their first lead of the game. The Little Giants would take this 1-0 lead into the locker room at the end of the first half.
Both defenses battled it out in the second half and didn’t allow a goal until in the 75th minute. DePauw’s Keaton Voegerl bested the Little Giants goalie Demitri Lee ’21 and tied the game at one. Wabash quickly answered on one of their few shot opportunities in the second half when Sims found the net in the 80th minute to give the Little Giants their second and deciding lead of the game. Recording the assist was Stojan Krsteski ’18. DePauw finished the game with several more offensive opportunities, but none resulted in a goal.
The Little Giant defense stood strong against the Tiger offense. DePauw averaged almost 13 shots per game in the last three games, but the Wallies held them to only six attempts on the night. Starting in goal for the Little Giants was Lee who improved to 6-4 on the season.
The Little Giants return to action tomorrow at home to finish the regular season against The College of Wooster (6-10-1). The match kicks off at noon on Fischer Field. Come out and support your Little Giants.
