We've put a lot on her shoulders this year and she's done her part to help this team be successful, which is incredible to see out of a freshman.”
Emma Hogland scored the other goal for the Indians, who jumped to a 3-0 halftime lead and held on after improving to 13-1 overall and 7-0 in the conference.
