Jordyn Hanshaw scored four goals as Glenwood routed Denison 10-0 in a Class 2A regional quarterfinal Friday.
Hanshaw opened the Rams scoring onslaught just 3:22 into the game with her first of four goals on the night. Just 38 seconds after that first score, Alicia Leu added a second Ram goal.
The Rams led 6-0 at halftime.
“The girls played really well tonight and we are looking forward to Tuesday’s regional game,” said Glenwood coach Amy Benson.
Sydney Stivers added two goals and Natalie Shearer, Taylor Bardsley and Sarah Homan had one goal apiece.
The Glenwood defense held the Monarchs without a shot on goal and offensively recorded 22 shots of their own. Ram goalkeeper Rileigh Spahn pitched a shutout without recording a save.
The Rams played Council Bluffs Lewis Central in Tuesday night’s regional semifinal.
The Glenwood girls soccer team closed out its regular season with a 3-1 loss to Tri-Center last Tuesday.
“The girls worked hard this game and if a couple outcomes would have come out differently the result would have been 2-2 going into overtime,” Benson said. “We had a couple let downs defensively and Tri-Center was able to capitalize on them. The girls worked hard and used the game as a practice for our upcoming substate game. That is where our sights are set.”
Tri-Center scored the game’s first goal on a controversial corner kick to take an early 1-0 lead. The Rams appeared to have averted the shot with a save but the referee awarded the goal to Tri-Center.
“We thought we had saved the ball on the goal line, but the referees thought differently and awarded Tri-Center with a goal,” said Glenwood coach Amy Benson.
The Rams were able to answer back with a goal by Sarah Homan’s but Tri-Center was able to sneak one more goal in before halftime to take a 2-1 lead into the break.
Glenwood came out in the second half playing hard.
Homan had another shot that hit off the inside of the post and went across the goal in what Benson thought was a game-tying goal but the referee shook off the goal.
“We thought this was a goal because it was similar to Tri-Center’s first goal, but the referees thought differently and did not award us with the goal,” Benson said.
Tri-Center was able to get one more goal in the second half to pull out the win.
The Glenwood girls won their fourth straight match with an 8-0 shutout victory over Atlantic May 23.
The Rams (9-6 overall, 5-2 in the Hawkeye 10 Conference) dominated the Trojanns in every phase and held a 41-0 shots on goal advantage.
“The girls connected really well again tonight,” said Glenwood coach Amy Benson.
In the Rams’ four game win streak, they’ve out-scored opponents 33-1.
Jordyn Hanshaw led the way with three goals. Alicia Leu, Sydney Stivers, Sydney Johnson, Sarah Homan and Mikaela Stanek each added goals.
