Roetcisoender’s hat trick leads LC to 7-1 win over Nooksack

Emily Roetcisoender recorded a hat trick and Bailee Den Bleyker scored twice to lead the Lynden Christian girls’ soccer team to a 7-1 Northwest Conference victory over Nooksack Valley on Friday, Sept. 16.

“The girls created a lot of chances,” Lyncs coach Brent De Ruyter said. “We finished well – in the first half, especially. I thought we possessed the ball really well today.”

Shyann Brandsma had two assists to help LC (3-2, 2-0 NWC) jump out to a 6-1 lead by halftime.

“We’re really excited,” De Ruyter said. “The energy’s great, and the chemistry is unbelievable.”

The Lyncs face Lynden at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 20, at Bender Fields, and the Pioneers (0-3, 0-2) turn around to play a nonleague game at Blaine at 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17, at Pipeline Fields.
