(Sioux Center, Iowa) By Sam Ekstrom, Dordt College Sports Information Student Assistant
No. 16 Graceland University scored early and often en route to a 7-0 victory, spoiling Dordt College’s season-opener.
The Yellowjackets scored 32 seconds in when Stephanie D’Cruz put a shot past freshman goalie Deianira Felts. D’Cruz scored her second goal of the game two minutes later, making the score 2-0.
Graceland added two more quick goals to take a 4-0 by the 14th minute. Courtney Codilla and Sarahi Ortiz Casillas each tallied goals to give the Yellowjackets a commanding lead.
The defending HAAC champions continued applying the pressure with three second-half goals. D’Cruz completed the scoring with a 73rd-minute strike, giving her a hat trick for the game and six goals in the season’s first three contests.
Graceland (3-0-0) has yet to allow a goal all season. They’ll next play Northwestern College in Orange City, Iowa on Saturday night.
Dordt College (0-1-0) stays home to face John Brown University (Ark.) on Saturday afternoon.
