Men's soccer win streak at 4 games

The winning streak continues. The Ohio Northern men's soccer team made it four victories in a row Wednesday night, downing Hanover (Ind.) 2-0 at Kerscher Stadium behind a pair of second half goals.

"We take a lot of pride in getting shut outs," interim head coach Chris Matejka said. "Team defense is a big part of what we do. It feels good to get four, and we just want to keep it going."

A big part of that team defense is sophomore goaltender John Lombardo (Solon). He logged two saves Wednesday to earn his fifth shut out of the season and fourth in a row. It has been four years since ONU has shut out four straight opponents.
