Junior Alexys Riksen scored four goals as Western Michigan Christian pounded Whitehall on Monday, 8-0.
Brea Frein, Megan Teeter, Jessica Kinnucan and Alyssay Benedict each added a goal. Benedict also had two assists for the Warriors, who had a 25-2 advantage in shots on goal.
“We practiced all spring in the cold and mostly inside, and this was our first time outside for a game,” said Warriors’ coach David Hulings. “So it was nice to just be able to play. The girls were just so excited to play that the snow and cold was not really a factor until later in the game.
“We tried a couple different looks tonight and we have a lot of possibility. We can move a lot of people around to different places and create a lot of different looks. This should be a fun season.”
