Freshman Brailey Moeder scored her first career hat trick on Wednesday to lead the No. 19-ranked Hutchinson Community College women's soccer team to an 8-0 Jayhawk West victory over Dodge City at the Salthawk Sports Complex.
Moeder completed the 78th hat trick in program history with three goals in the first half. Moeder's three first-half goals was the 21st time a Blue Dragon player scored three or more goals in the opening half. It was the 42nd time in program history for a Blue Dragon player to score three goals in a half.
The Blue Dragons are now 8-0 overall, 4-0 in the Jayhawk West (12 points) and 5-0 in Region VI West (15 points). Dodge City falls to 4-5-1 overall and 1-2-1 in league play.
The Dragons defeated Dodge City for the 14th consecutive time.
Moeder, Hutchinson's season-leading scorer, wound up with a career-high seven points on Wednesday with three goals an assist.
Moeder was one of four Blue Dragons who had multi-point games against the Conquistadors.
Freshman Ariel Wolff had her first career goal and first career assists and she played in only her second game of the season after returning from an injury. Freshman Taylor Godlove and sophomore Miykayla Moresco each had a goal and an assist.
Freshman Jasmine Blindt was credited with the game-winner when she blasted a shot from the right side of the penalty area for the game's first goal. Sophomore Sheena Nichol also scored a goal. Kaitlyn Sabala, Megan Maslak and Yadira Delgado were all credited with assists on Wednesday as the Blue Dragons posted season highs for goals and assists.
The Blue Dragons dominated by firing 54 total shots to Dodge City's six. The Dragons had a 21-1 advantage in shots on goal.
Freshman goalkeeper Clara Burgmuller (4-0) recorded her fourth shutout of the season with one save.
With Hutchinson leading 1-0, Godlove scored at the 16:32 mark of the period. Just 21 seconds later, Moeder scored the first of her three goals.
That 21-second interval between goals was the second-shortest between goals in team history. The record is 18 seconds set in last season's 23-0 victory over Pratt at the Salthawk Sports Complex.
The Blue Dragons travel to Garden City on Saturday for a 4 p.m. kickoff at Broncbuster Stadium
