WATERLOO, Iowa – Two quick goals in the first period proved to be the difference for the Northeast Community College women's soccer team on Wednesday.
"We came out really strong possessing the ball and building up our attack," head coach Chad Miller said. "We were able to get two goals quickly which was nice, but then I felt we got a little complacent and relaxed a little too much."
Gess finished with five shots, three shots on goal and a goal. Ohu tallied two shots, two shots on goal for the Hawks. Goalie Lizzy McCalla added four saves in the net.
The Hawks out-shot the Red Tails 21-10.
"In the second half, we had really great chances to add to the score, but their goalie did a great job closing down those chances," Miller added. "We have been creating goals in the past few games. As we get further into conference, we have to make sure we take advantage of every opportunity."
The Hawks continue conference action, traveling to Southeastern Community College at 4 p.m. Saturday in Burlington, Iowa.
