Attack pours into Dutch women’s football


DUBUQUE — Eight different members of the Central College women’s soccer team scored goals in an 11-0 loss to Coe College on Saturday afternoon.

The margin of victory is Central’s largest in a conference game, equivalent to an 11-0 win over Upper Iowa University on Oct. 7, 1998. The Dutch (7-3-1, 1-1-1 ) hadn’t scored double digits since a 13-0 win over Crown College (Minn.) on Oct. 6, 2015.

The first two goals of the game went to Grace Coats (sophomore, striker, Marion) who added another in the second half for his first collegiate hat trick.

“She’s one of the most dangerous players in the league when she’s playing,” Kobylinski said. “And today she was on.”

Bridget Lynch (senior, defenseman, Northglenn, Colorado, Jefferson Academy) came from her place in the back for two goals in the first 30 minutes of the contest, picking up the first brace of her career. Paige Cahill (junior, Castle Rock, CO, Castle View HS) had one goal and two assists, tying a career high with four points.

Rachel Daniels (senior, midfielder, Geneseo, Illinois)
, Jadyn Jacobs (sophomore, midfielder, Washington, IL) and Hailey Hunter (junior, forward, Rockford, IL, East HS) each had a purpose and an assist in the contest. Abby Frey (junior, midfielder, Mesa, Arizona, Desert Ridge HS) and Esther Hughes (freshman, forward, Kalona, ​​Iowa, Hillcrest Academy) also registered some killer strikes.

“Any time you can have more than a few people on the scoresheet, that’s a great team win,” Kobylinski said. “I was particularly pleased with Hailey Hunter scoring his first college goal. She gave us some great minutes today.”

This is the seventh shutout of the season for Central but the first without 90 minutes of action by Sheila Horstman (senior, West Des Moines, Valley HS), who made four saves before giving way to the reserve keeper Bailey Lester (Freshman, Sioux Falls, SD, Washington HS) for the last 19 minutes.

“Our goal was to get another shutout after letting a few goals slip away on Wednesday,” Kobylinski said. “It was nice to play our brand defensively.”

Central has a crucial home contest with Simpson College Tuesday afternoon at 1 p.m. halfway through the American Rivers Conference slate.

“It’s a rivalry game and it’s nice to play on our pitch,” Kobylinski said. “We love to form teams on our big grass pitch. We are delighted with it.”
