MARQUETTE, Mich. – Five different players scored for Michigan Tech in a 5-0
GLIAC soccer win at Northern Michigan Saturday (Sept. 22). The Huskies
improve to 5-2-0 overall and a perfect 3-0-0 conference record after
completing the season sweep of the Wildcats.

“I thought our team played an incredible game of soccer today,” said head
coach Michelle Jacob. “We asked them to come out strong, and that is
exactly what they did. We were able to put in an early goal and then
continued to have good combinations on the field, possess and create
quality shots throughout the game. We are very proud of our players and
their performance.”

The Huskies wasted no time scoring in the opening minute. MacKenzie Jordan
scored off a rebound created off a save by the goalie.

Alyssa Hynnek factored into the next two Tech goals. She sent a through
pass to Lexi Herrewig who scored in the 11th minute. Hynnek scored a goal
of her own unassisted in the 35th minute.

The Huskies scored two more goals in the second half thanks to Katie
Boardman in the 61st minute and Haley Crites in the 69th.

The five Tech goals ties the school record for most goals in a game.

The Huskies finished with a 20-9 advantage in shots, including a 13-4 mark
in shots on goal.

Jenna Phelps made four saves in goal for the Huskies.

Tech, who is tied for first in the GLIAC, hosts Findlay Friday (Sept. 28).
