ORANGE BEACH, Ala-- The 23rd-ranked University of Mobile women's soccer team blasted the Northwood University Lady Knights 5-1 in non-conference NAIA action Friday afternoon at the Orange Beach Sportsplex.
Mobile dominated from the first whistle and got a hat trick from sophomore Christy Lachappelle, while out shooting the Lady Knights 19-2 and finishing with a 10-2 edge in shots on target.
Kassie Ruff put Mobile on the board first with a goal just 1:02 into the contest when she took a cross from Ashley Lachappelle in the 18-yard box and punched it into the back of the net.
In the 11th minute, Anna Maddox headed home a corner kick from Ashley Lachappelle to make it 2-0 Mobile, and then in the 25th minute Christy Lachappelle got her body in front of a cross from Mary Lippa and bumped it into the goal for a 3-0 lead.
Audrey Gatlin kept Northwood from getting blanked with a goal in the 43rd minute.
Christy Lachappelle then continued her scoring spree in the final 45 minutes, accounting for all of the game's scoring in that period. She tallied an unassisted goal in the 62nd minute, weaving her way through defenders, and then finished the scoring in the 80th minute off an assist from Stephanie Weaver.
