HESSTON – Playing as Jayhawk Conference rivals for the first time on Saturday, the Hutchinson Community College women's soccer team defeated Hesston College 4-1 at the Hesston Soccer field.
The Blue Dragons remain unbeaten in six games this season with a 5-0-1 record. The Dragons are now 3-0-1 (10 points) in the conference standings. Hesston falls to 0-7 overall and 0-3 in league play.
Freshman midfiender Naomi Waithira had a season-high four points with a goal and two assists to lead the Blue Dragons.
Had it not been for the goalkeeping of Vivi Rodriguez, the Dragons would have won by a much wider margin. Rodriguez had 19 saves on 23 shots saved. Those 19 saves ties for the eighth most by a Blue Dragon opposing keeper in team history.
The Blue Dragons dominated possession and cast 36 total shots to 2 for the Larks. Blue Dragon keeper Taylor Camp had one save and one goal allowed in the game.
The Blue Dragons scored early once again, getting Moeder's sixth goal of the season off a Waithira assist just 3:11 into the game for a 1-0 Hutch lead. Waithira scored her fourth of the season with just less than 10 minutes remaining in the first half and a 2-0 Hutch lead.
Hutchinson plays host to Dodge City at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at the Sports Arena.
