Lady Lancers shut out Graceland

DES MOINES, Iowa – The season-opening trip for Grace’s women’s soccer team produced a pair of wins in Iowa.

The Lady Lancers blanked a strong Graceland squad 1-0 on Saturday to improve to 2-0 on the season.

Shelby Fort picked up her second game-winning goal of the season with an early strike.

It did not take long for Grace to take control of the match against Graceland. The Lady Lancers were fouled in their attacking third, and Corinne Villalobos quickly restarted to set up the attack.

Shelby Fort drove toward the top of the penalty box and split two defenders with a pass to Sacia Hanson on the right side. Hanson beat a defender and passed to Jenni Phillips directly in front of the goal.

Phillips held off her defender and alertly teed up a pass to Fort, who blasted in her second goal of the season at the 3:03 mark.

The rest of the match was relatively even. The Yellow Jackets held a slight 12-10 edge in shot attempts over the course of the game.

Grace had four shots on goal compared to five for Graceland; Graceland also owned a 10-3 advantage in fouls.

“This was a good match for the Grace College women’s soccer program today. Graceland was solid all over, and it was a battle. Our crew has so much respect for their game,” said Grace head coach Michael Voss. “Ultimately we settled in and took control in key sections, and we rode the lead by being dangerous. I’m proud of our women today. They came of age.”

Corinne Villalobos led Grace with three shots, two on goal, and Liz Van Wormer took two shots.

Bethany Blackwood picked up another shutout in goal for Grace, her second straight to start her freshman season. She made five saves in 90 minutes.

The Lady Lancers are back home on Wednesday, hosting Michigan-Dearborn at 6 p.m. The men’s soccer team will follow the women for a doubleheader at 1st Source Bank Field.
