The 11th shutout of the season helped the 19th-ranked Hope College women’s soccer team extend its title run in the Michigan Intercollegiate Athletic Association. The Flying Dutch won 2-0 at Alma College on Wednesday to claim an outright MIAA championship and record the second three-peat of league titles in team history. Hope (13-1-2 overall) finished in first place with a 7-0-1 league record. The Flying Dutch were outright champs in 2017 and co-champions in 2016. Against Alma, senior Hilary Curry (Grand Rapids, Mich./Grandville Calvin Christian) and sophomore Audrey White (Hudsonville, Mich./Hudsonville) provided the offense Hope needed.
The Kalamazoo College women's soccer team began the week with a 1-1 tie with Elmhurst before falling to Hope in the first round of the MIAA Tournament on Saturday. Josie Sibley connected on a pass from Kai Ketola in the draw for Kalamazoo's lone goal. In Kalamazoo's 4-1 loss to Hope, freshman Kai Ketola found the back of the net in the 70th minute to bring the Hornets within one. Kalamazoo was unable to muster up a comeback and fell short of continuing its season.
The Olivet College women's soccer team ended its season with a 2-0 loss to Calvin and 1-0 loss to Albion last week. The Comets finished the season with an 8-9-2 overall record.
The Belles saw their season come to a close with a 3-1 setback against Trine last Tuesday evening (Oct. 23). Rose Stackhouse scored her team-leading 12th goal of the season for the Belles. Sophie Bubnar and Lindsey Herdsman each collected an assist. Delaney Rohlman stopped six shots on goal on the night.
