DEMOTTE | Hanover Central knew of Andrean’s firepower, but it couldn’t slow it down in Monday’s opener of the Class A Covenant Christian Sectional.

The Niners (10-7) got a hat trick from Mike Gore and a pair of goals from Chase Dawson in a 6-0 victory over the Wildcats.

“The idea tonight was just to keep the ball down and execute,” veteran Andrean coach Pete Reist said.

The Niners did just that and didn’t take long to break through when Dawson found the net on an assist from Daniel Kim less than 90 seconds into the match.

“The first goal, you couldn’t have drawn up any better,” Reist said. “We came down, got a nice cross in the middle, right there.”

The early score set the tone for the rest of the match.

“I couldn’t have done it without Daniel catching that ball,” Dawson said. “The whole team had the momentum.”

Dawson scored again at the 13:33 mark to give the 'Niners a 2-0 advantage before Gore got his first goal at the 25:58 mark for a 3-0 count.

Andrean also got a goal when a Hanover clearing pass got by goalkeeper Jeremy Burns at the 30:24 mark for a 4-0 bulge.

Gore pounded in two more goals in the first 11 minutes of the second half to put the game out of reach.

“I shot when I could,” Gore said. “It was kind of sloppy down here in the box. Mike (Metlov) gave me a lot of good balls, especially at the beginning of the first half.

“He put one right in behind the defense, so that made it easy for me.”

Andrean advances to play Rensselaer in Wednesday’s second semifinal game after Covenant Christian faces Bishop Noll at 5 p.m.

Hanover (4-11-1) had a few scoring opportunities, as Alec Nirtaut and Dyllan Bakker each took solid shots.

“We just really couldn’t get anything going on our offensive half,” Hanover coach Dan Grunewald said

He knew Andrean’s strengths were its midfielders and Gore up front.

“Give Andrean credit,” Grunewald said. “They’re a good team.”
