The No. 1-ranked Lindsey Wilson women’s soccer dominated in a 10-1 win over St. Catharine (Ky.) on Wednesday night at Walter S. Reuling Stadium.

Lindsey Wilson (8-0-2, 4-0-0 MSC) grabbed their 400th win in program history with the victory over the Patriots (4-7-0, 1-3-0 MSC). Amanda Kander recorded four assists to tie the record for most assists in game, a mark that teammate Emma Skaremo also achieved earlier this year. With one assist in each half, Emilia Jonsson chipped in with a pair of assists.

St. Catharine started the first half with two quick shots on goal, but the Blue Raiders turned the tables and rattled off five goals in the first 25 minutes of the match to take a 5-0 lead. Lyana Perez got the scoring started in the 10th minute after she corralled a loose ball in the six-yard box and put it past the St. Catharine goalkeeper.

Yvonne Ploeg followed in the 14th minute with her first goal of the game to increase the Blue Raider lead to 2-0. Isobel Dalton scored 28-seconds later as Lindsey Wilson led 3-0. Perez scored two more goals in the 20th and 22nd minutes to complete her second hat trick of the season.

Ploeg scored in the 36th minute as the Blue Raiders took a 6-0 lead into the half. Kander recorded her four assists in the opening half of the game.

Early in the second half, the Patriots scored their lone goal of the match in the 47th minute to cut the Lindsey Wilson lead to 6-1. Kander regained the six-goal lead for the Blue Raiders in the 66th minute, and Ivana Damnjanovic scored three minutes later to put Lindsey Wilson up 8-1.

Skaremo continued the offensive attack for the Blue Raiders as she converted on a pass from Jonsson in the 73rd minute. Skaremo scored her second goal of the match in the 85th minute as she capped off the scoring for the Blue Raiders en route to a 10-1 win.

After playing a full 90 minutes, Johanna Henriksson moves into second all-time in minutes played with 4,768 minutes.

Lindsey Wilson hits the road next week as they start their West Coast trip at No. 12 Vanguard (Calif.) at 5 p.m. CT in Costa Mesa, Calif.
