Grace women’s soccer explodes with six goals

WINONA LAKE, Ind. – Grace’s women’s soccer team enjoyed a goal spree on Saturday in the 2020 season opener.

The Lady Lancers topped Point Park 6-0 at 1st Source Bank Field in Grace’s only nonconference game of the fall.

Grace will quickly shift into Crossroads League play next week, starting with a home match against No. 7 Indiana Wesleyan on Wednesday at 7 p.m.

JJ Aalbue scored two goals to lead Grace’s attack, and Brooke Kohler and Lea Moessinger each produced a goal and an assist.

It took Grace almost 40 minutes to get on the scoreboard on Saturday. But once the Lady Lancers started scoring, they never stopped.

Grace held a dominant 16-0 advantage in shot attempts in the first half, but the Lady Lancers only led 1-0 at halftime.

Grace applied pressure to the Pioneers’ backline almost immediately on Saturday, peppering Point Park’s goal with shots.

Aalbue and Alexis Larimore both had shots that bounced off the goal post before halftime, but it wouldn’t be long before Grace scored.

A handball from Point Park gave Grace a free kick, and Aalbue scored on a set piece in the 39th minute, assisted by Moessinger.

Grace’s second goal came four minutes into the second half. Kohler swung a dangerous cross into the penalty box, and Larimore connected to give Grace a 2-0 lead.

In the 62nd minute, Grace scored again. Madison Tuma won possession deep in PPU’s territory, quickly passing the ball to Aalbue. Aalbue needed just one touch to slice the ball into the far corner of the net.

In the 78th minute, Adelee Gartner made a clever move in the middle of the field and found Tuma in the penalty box. Tuma was fouled, and Moessinger converted the penalty kick.

Grace added two more goals in the final five minutes. The first was scored by Taylor Binkerd, who blasted her shot into the goal after a cross by Liz Aalbue.

The sixth and final goal was one of the most memorable. Kohler scored on a free kick, beating the goalkeeper from 28 yards away from the goal.

For the game, Grace held a 30-2 edge in shots. Goalkeeper Bethany Blackwood needed to stop two shots to record her shutout.
