CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa -- The Mount Mercy women's soccer team continued its dominant start to the 2017 season on Friday night, routing Cornell, 7-0, in the inaugural match at the Robert W. Plaster Athletic Complex.
Just as they did in their first two games, the Mustangs (3-0-0) took an early lead and never looked back. Payton Pottratz got things started with an unassisted goal in the fourth minute. Carly Walker scored her first goal of the night in the seventh minute on an assist by Cally Salter, then added two more in the first half to collect a hat trick. Walker's third goal of the night was assisted by Andrea Lopez.
Mount Mercy built on that 4-0 halftime lead. Adelaide Bayne converted a penalty kick in the 64th minute. Next it was Abby Estabrook from Megan Hall in the 72nd, followed by an unassisted Lopez goal to finish the scoring in the 78th minute. Through three matches, the Mustangs lead the NAIA in goals scored with 36. They scored a school-record 17 in their season-opening win over Manhattan Christian (Kan.), then 12 more in Tuesday's road win at Hannibal-LaGrange (Mo.).
Intra-city rival Coe is up next for Mount Mercy. The Kohawks visit the Plaster Athletic Complex on Wednesday at 7:00 p.m.
