COLUMBIA - The Columbia College women's soccer team extended its home game win streak to three with a shutout victory Saturday against Dordt College from Sioux Center, Iowa.
The 9-0 win for the Cougars was led by forward Kelly Ross who had three goals in the first half. Ross continued to contribute on the offensive end in the second half with three assists, two for midfielder Emily Holt and one for forward Kaitlin Brauner.
"Kelly Ross was really effective at getting behind her defense and putting the ball in the net." Columbia coach John Klein said, "We moved the ball well, and we played with better patience and composure than we have before."
Ross, a freshman, now stands as the leader for the Cougars in both goal and assists. She has made six goals for the season and seven assists.
The out-of-conference victory came on homecoming day for Columbia College with many alumni in attendance.
"We we're feeding off the momentum of this being the homecoming game," midfielder Taylor Goddard said.
The Cougars had 18 shots on goal for the game compared to Dordt's three.
"We look forward to next week and carrying off the momentum of this win," Goddard said.
The Cougars will return to American Midwest Conference play on Tuesday, October 9 when they face off against William Woods University at 5 p.m. in Fulton.
