No. 11 Hope Charges Past Trine With Four Second-Half Goals

A frustrating first half gave way to a satisfying second half when the Hope College women's soccer team opened up a 10-minute scoring deluge on a rainy night in Van Andel Soccer Stadium. After a scoreless first 45 minutes, the Flying Dutch scored four goals from 61:08 to 71:34 to defeat the Trine Thunder, 4-0.

The win lifts No. 11-ranked Hope to 3-0-1 in the MIAA and 9-1-2 overall. Trine drops to 3-10-1 overall and 0-4-1 in the league.

Soggy, sleek turf — along with a defensively-focused opponent — dampened the Flying Dutch's chances in the first half. Trine packed its backfield with at least 10 players most of the game, giving the Flying Dutch fits to get around them. Hope adjusted after halftime, though, by delivering early service on the ball toward the Thunder's goal. 

"You can't carry the ball through that many people," said head coach Leigh Sears of her team's first-half tendency at attempting to penetrate the Trine defense. "So we got our heads up, played the big ball across the goal, and that's when we started finishing. That opened up what we like to do which is take the ball end line."

Grace Bubin's three assists, her first of the season, set a Van Andel Soccer Stadium record for the most assists in one game by a Flying Dutch player.

Hope's defense held Trine to just one shot overall and on goal. The Flying Dutch took 27 shots, with 17 on goal. The Flying Dutch dominated in corner kicks too, 9-3.

Hope plays next on Saturday, Oct. 13 at MIAA-leader Adrian College, which is 4-0 in league play. Kickoff is at 12 p.m.
