EL DORADO – The Hutchinson Community College women’s soccer team struggled at both ends of the field Saturday as the No. 12-ranked Butler Grizzlies rolled to a 5-0 Jayhawk Conference victory at BG Products/Veterans Stadium on Saturday.

The Blue Dragons fall to 2-3 overall and 1-3 in conference play. The Blue Dragons play host to the Cowley Tigers at 6 p.m. on Wednesday at the Salthawk Sports Complex.

Butler scored in the 10th minute and scored three times in the first half from three different goal scorers. The Grizzlies tallied two more goals in the second half. Kim McAlpine had two goals to lead the Grizzlies.

The Blue Dragons were out-shot 16-8 and had only two shots on goal by freshman Hadlie Lowe. The Grizzlies had 10 shots on goal with Blue Dragon freshman goalkeeper Olivia Felix-Cardona making five saves.

The five goals allowed tied for the second most goals allowed in Blue Dragon team history and it was the first time since October 22, 2012 that the Dragons allowed five goals in a game. This was only the ninth time in team history the Dragons have allowed five or more goals in a game. The five-goal margin of defeat also tied for the worst loss in team history.
