The season's scoring opened in unusual fashion as Wone's first goal
as a Piper came on a penalty kick. The kick was awarded after Tageldin
was fouled in the box by the Crown keeper.
Wone scored the goal at 11:11 and then put in a rebound off of a
Javier Rios (Sr., Chihuahua, Mexico) shot at 16:45 to put Hamline up
Sam Studer then scored on a breakaway at 36:45 to give Hamline a 3-0 lead heading into halftime.
Tageldin scored both of Hamline's second-half goals from the center
of the box, the first at 60:23 as Greg Northrop (Fy., Arden Hills,
Minn.) bounced the ball up to him.
His second goal came on a pass from Brian Stout (Fy., Lake Villa, Ill.) at 72:45.
Zach Nelson (Jr., Eagan, Minn.) was well protected in net, forced to make just two saves to earn the shutout.
Hamline opens the season at 1-0 overall with the non-conference win
while Crown is 0-1. The Pipers will host Wartburg on Friday, September
3, at 4:00 p.m. in a non-conference contest.
