The University of Redlands women's soccer team faced Shepherd University (CA) in a non-conference match under blue skies on Saturday morning at Farquhar Field. The women found the back of the net 20 times by 11 different goal-scorers for a record-breaking afternoon.
The Bulldogs jumped on the board in the fifth minute when sophomore forward Hanya Loskutoff (Dublin, CA) fired a shot past the Thundering Herd goalkeeper. Only a minute later sophomore midfielder Alexa Groesser (Denver, CO) duplicated Loskutoff's efforts to make the score 2-0.
Groesser and junior forward Adi Fellows (Albuquerque, NM) went on to have a record-breaking day with Groesser resetting Redlands' single-game goals standard with four, while Fellows matched the now second-place stat with three.
Loskutoff and junior forward Madison Mills (San Ramon, CA) both tied for Redlands' most single-game assists, each serving up three.
Three rookie Bulldogs in forward Emily Falla (Woodinville, WA), midfielder Holland Aucoin (Monroe, WA), and midfielder Eva Vlassopoulos (Portland, OR) fired off goals while defender Lydia Christian (Truckee, CA) dished out two assists.
In addition to the individual record-breakers, Redlands reset the single-game total goal record by an impressive seven goals, with second place now sitting at 13.
The Bulldogs (3-0) are riding high as they look forward to kicking off conference play next Wednesday, September 13, when they travel to Cal Lutheran University to face the Regals.
