OSKALOOSA, Iowa – The Evangel women's soccer team was firing on all cylinders today as it beat William Penn 7-1.

Bianca Biffert got it all started in the fifth minute when she fired home the first of her four goals off a pass from Sedona Townsend. In the 18th minute, it was Biffert with the assist to Ashley Ard to double the Crusaders lead.

After halftime, Evangel really kicked it up a notch with Biffert scoring a hat trick within a ten-minute span. Brooklyn Barnett got in on the scoring when she converted off a corner kick by Emily Hanrahan in the 86th minute. The final nail was driven by Amber Ellis who slotted home a pass from Riley Jarvis.

"Today we had some great offensive output, especially in the second half. Bianca had a huge day offensively. Great team win as everyone was able to make an impact in the match," Head Coach Bruce Deaton had to say after the match. "Another great win for our program. With today's win we picked up our 10th of the season, a new milestone for the program, and we continue to maintain hold of our spot in the conference standings and increase our conference record to 7-1-2. This sets up a big regular-season finale at home on Wednesday against Benedictine."
