2004-09-14
The Foresters controlled the tempo of the game from start to finish and blanked Hanover College 3-0. HC got some help on their first goal of the game. Forester keeper, Courtney Hamilton, punted the ball beyond the Panther defense creating a scramble for the ball as it entered the box. In an effort to clear the ball, the Hanover sweeper headed the ball toward his keeper, but it sailed over his head and into the net. The fluke goal was the only score of the half. Early in the second half, HC went down a man when David Callahan was issued a red card. The Foresters were able to re-grouped and scored a short-handed goal on a penalty kick from Luke Caldwell in the 59th minute. HC continued to possess the ball the majority of the half and added a third goal in the 70th minute on a Jarrod Bennett pass to Joel Sanders for the score. "It was a terrific team effort tonight," said Coach Lawson. "We faced adversity and still came away with a decisive result. It's a true testimony to the hearts of these men." For the game, the Foresters out-shot Hanover 8-3 and held a 6-2 advantage in corner kicks. The win brings the men even at 3-3 on the season.
