GARDEN CITY – Before people settled into their seats on Friday night at Buster Stadium, the Hutchinson Community College women's soccer team had a lead.
The second-fastest goal in Blue Dragon history was the opening tally of a 3-0 Jayhawk West victory over Garden City, sweeping the season series with the Broncbusters.
Hutchinson improves to 9-2-1 overall and 7-2-1 in the Jayhawk West (22 points). Garden City falls to 2-10 overall and 2-8 in the conference.
Sydney Blackwell scored just 23 seconds into the game Friday night from a Brailey Moeder assist. The 23-second elapsed time is the second fastest goal scored in a game in program history. The fastest was 20 seconds scored by Stephany Cushing against Independence in 2012.
Blackwell's first-minute goal was the eighth in Blue Dragon history and second this season. Naomi Waithira had a goal 30 seconds into a Sept. 8 home game against Barton. It's the sixth time this season the Blue Dragons scored a goal in the first 5 minutes of a game.
Moeder had a goal and an assist to lead the Blue Dragons offensively. It was her eighth multi-point game of the season. Ashley Venegas scored her team-high 11th goal of the season in the 14th minute of the first half. Venegas has scored a goal for the third-straight game and for the 7th time in the last 8 games.
The Blue Dragons out-shot Garden City 10-0 on Friday night. It's the 23rd time in program history – the second against Garden City – to hold an opponent without a shot taken. It's the 38th time in team history – the third against the Busters – to hold an opponent without a shot on goal.
Blue Dragon goalkeeper Taylor Camp registered her fifth shutout of the season.
Hutchinson is back in action on Wednesday at the Salthawk Sports Complex against Hesston College at 6 p.m.
