Women’s Soccer

  1. St.Scholastica W 5-1


It was a big day for Women’s Soccer on Wednesday the 18. With just four games left in the season they have been fighting for a spot in the playoffs. In the first half of the game first-year Ellie Baxter scored early and was shortly followed by a second goal by firstear Jordan Roderick-Fried. This put Hamline up 2-0 at the end of the first half.

When the second half began St. Scholastica was able to score early on but Hamline quickly responded with another goal by Roderick-Fried. Before the end of the game Roderick-Fried would score again to get the hat trick. With just ten minutes left in the game Senior Brittany Beckman scored setting the final score at 5-1. With a win under their belt the soccer team is ready to go into the last three games of the season.

When asked about these games Head Coach Emily Cripe said, “We are in the middle of the pack, but so is everyone we have left to play.”

This means that the upcomings games are crucial if Hamline wants to make it into the top six and qualify for the playoffs.

The fourth and final set favoured the Cardinals heavily as they took an early lead and maintained it throughout ending the set at 25-18 for the Cardinals.

The fourth quarter was mostly running plays, the Tommies only scoring once off of their field position from the end of the third. This put the game’s final score at 0-84 for the Tommies.
