After back-and-forth play for the majority of the first half, the Panthers finally got on the scoreboard in minute 30. The first half ended with the score 1-0 in favor of the defending HCAC champions.
Hanover added a pair of tallies in the first eight minutes of period two and cruised to a 5-1 victory over the Beavers. In minute 62, Maddie Moore (Linn Grove, Ind./South Adams) drilled the only goal for Bluffton with an assist from Aimee Whitmer (Grand Rapids/Otsego). The Panthers then tacked on two more goals in minutes 75 and 89 to cap it off.
The home team finished with a 12-9 advantage in shots, while they matched the number of corner kicks (3) with Bluffton. The Beavers committed three more fouls than Hanover (11-8). Aimee Whitmer paced the visitors with four shot attempts and Maddie Moore followed with three.
