CSM scores 2 goals in each half to beat the Central College Dutch from Pella, Iowa, 4-1. 2 goals in the first half and 2 in the second. The first goal, MelissaKing just basically took the ball and dribbled straight through the Dutch defense and beat the keeper. The second goal (by King again) came off of an assist by RaeLeigh Withey who played a beautiful little through ball to beat the defense deep in the box.
Sara Berens opened up the scoring in the second minute of the second half by knocking in a great cross from Katie Archibald, who beat a player on the left side and crossed it.
The Dutch got on the score board in the 53rd minute when our back line was trying to push up and left Central's Hasken onside. Molly Jones came out strong and missed and Hasken slotted it in.
Melissa King got us back our 3 goal cushion on a header from a great cross by Kira Cross. Sara Berens was there at the back post but the ball proved too tall for her. King was positioned at a good angle behind Sara and was able to put it away, earned a hattrick.
CSM finished with 34 shots. Swanger was in goal in the first half and made 2 saves. Mollie Jones was keeper in the second have and made one save. Central College finished with 3 shots per half for a total of 6. Their keeper made 23 saves.
A good outing for CSM..Next game is in McPherson, Kansas on Thursday.
