ARKANSAS CITY – Coming off its first loss of the season, the Hutchinson Community College women’s soccer team earned a huge Jayhawk Conference road victory on Wednesday at No. 17 Cowley College.

Sophomore Hadlie Lowe’s goal with 34:13 remaining in the second half lifted the Blue Dragons to a 2-1 victory over the Tigers at the Cowley Soccer Complex. The Dragons snapped a four-game winless streak over Cowley. Hutchinson’s last win over the Tigers came on 2016.

The Blue Dragons improve to 8-1 overall and 5-1 in the Jayhawk West. The Tigers drop to 4-3 overall and 1-3 in the Jayhawk West.

Cowley was the first of four-straight nationally ranked opponents for the Blue Dragons. Up next is No. 15 Coffeyville at 2 p.m. Saturday at the Salthawk Sports Complex.

Just a little more than 10 minutes into the second half, Lowe took a long pass from Adriana Delgado and then moved in 1 on 1 against Cowley keeper Kanon Dehama and scored to give the Dragons a 2-1 lead.

The Blue Dragon defense played a strong second half, holding the Tigers to just one shot.

The goal was Lowe’s eighth of the season – first in four games – and 26th of her career. Lowe also scored her 11th career game-winning goal and third of the season. Now with 61 career points, Lowe is tied for 17th on the career list with Finola Corley (2009-10).

Cowley out-shot the Blue Dragons 10-4.

Blue Dragon sophomore goalkeeper Olivia Felix-Cardona made 5 of her 6 saves in the first half.

The Blue Dragons took a 1-0 lead 7:30 into the game when Cowley was tagged with an own goal. Zara Lawless played a long pass intended for Lowe, but was knocked into the goal by a Cowley defender.

Cowley tied the game at 1-1 with 26:46 left in the first half when Lina Fasquelle scored from a Gabrielle Oliveria assist.

Dehama had two assists for Cowley.
