Hanover dominated Mount St. Joseph in every way, rolling to a 2-0 win in men’s soccer Wednesday in Cincinnati.

The Panthers, winners of seven-straight, held a 34-2 advantage in shots, including 19-1 on goal. Hanover also had 11 corner kicks to just two by the Lions and committed only two fouls in the match.

The Panthers scored only twice, but it was more than enough to post the win in the shutout. Ian Waldrop, a junior from Louisville, scored the first goal unassisted in the 29th minute and Ethan Miller, a junior from Breaux Bridge, Louisiana, added the insurance marker in the 73rd minute off an assist by Carlos Schryver, a sophomore from Sao Paulo, Brazil.

Will Bedel, a junior from Walton, Kentucky, needed only one save in goal to secure the shutout win.

Hanover improved to 10-5-1 overall with the win and remains in a three-way tie with Rose-Hulman and Transylvania atop the Heartland Collegiate Athletic Conference standings. The Panthers close out the regular season at Defiance (Ohio) on Saturday.
