Hutch goalkeepers, Ashley Main and Clara Burgmuller have one shutout each through the first two games.

Thursday's meeting between Hutchinson and Rose State will be the third in the series. The first two matches were played in Midwest City, Oklahoma. Both were one-goal Hutchinson victories. In 2015, the Blue Dragons won 3-2 in overtime and last year, Hutch battled for a 1-0 victory.
This will be Hutchinson's only match of the week. The Blue Dragons play host to Hesston College and Barton next week at the Salthawk Sports Complex.
